Indoor Harvest Corp Releases Key Third Quarter Summary, Sets Out Future Plans

Nov 13, 2015, 12:15 ET from Indoor Harvest Corp

HOUSTON, Nov. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Indoor Harvest Corp (OTCQB: INQD), through its brand name Indoor Harvest®, is a full service, state of the art design-build engineering firm for the indoor and vertical farming industry. Providing production platforms and complete custom designed build outs for both greenhouse and building integrated agriculture grows, tailored to the specific needs of virtually any cultivar. The Company is pleased to announce results for the nine months ended, September 30, 2015 as well as subsequent events. Our complete Third Quarter Form 10-Q Report can be downloaded from our website under the "investors" section, or through the SEC's website at http://www.sec.gov.

Mr. Chad Sykes, Chief Executive Officer of Indoor Harvest, stated, "With our current revenue generating operations we have reached another key milestone in our Company's operating history. In the third quarter of 2015 we began offering design-build and equipment packages to commercial clients. To date we have secured two design-build agreements and equipment orders and are in serious negotiations for several more which, although there's no assurance, we hope to close in the near future. The full performance of our existing design-build agreements exceed a rough order magnitude (ROM), pre-construction estimate of $3.5M.  This ROM estimate is a 'ball park' price and not considered the final price. Once the design process is complete a detailed, or definitive full performance estimate is provided. There is no guarantee that we will reach full performance on any of our existing or future contracts, but we have received earnest money payments and begun the design and engineering process for actual design-build and equipment packages. In addition, we have begun work on a $16,000 equipment order and just today received a $30,000 deposit on a $89,000 equipment package."

Commenting on the implementation of the Company's strategy, Mr. Sykes noted "We have received several multi-million dollar requests for proposal for our design-build services and are currently responding to requests in Europe, Asia and the Mideast for distribution of our fixtures. Because we believe that the vertical farming industry is poised for significant future growth, we've strategically positioned ourselves in front of that growth with engineered solutions. I'd like to note that we've achieved this without any significant outbound marketing efforts to date. As our project portfolio grows and reputation spreads, outbound marketing may not even be required. Our initial strategy, which we are now proving to be correct, has been to position our company as a technology leader rather than chasing easy cash flow on legacy systems. We are beginning to see objective proof that this strategy is now paying off. To further this strategy, we anticipate that we will soon be filing additional applications for patent on new products we have developed through collaborative R&D."

In October 2015, we entered into design-build, original equipment manufacturer ("OEM") agreements, with a specialty building integrated agricultural cultivation facility in Colorado and a Maryland production facility. Both facilities encompass over 40,000 square feet of production footprint with $15,000 in earnest money payments already received, to initiate our design process.

On December 18, 2014, Indoor Harvest entered into the Pilot Project Agreement with Canopy Growth, a TSX Venture Exchange listed company whose wholly-owned subsidiaries Tweed Inc. ("Tweed"), Tweed Farms Inc. ("Tweed Farms"), and Bedrocan Canada Inc. ("Bedrocan") which are federally licensed producers of medical cannabis in Canada. The principal activities of Canopy Growth's subsidiaries are the production of cannabis at Tweed Farms' facility in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario and the production and sale of cannabis from Tweed Inc.'s facility in Smiths Falls, Ontario and Bedrocan's facility in Toronto, Ontario as regulated by the Canadian Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations.

With the successful outcome of the initial technical pilot at Tweed, on September 28, 2015, Indoor Harvest and Canopy Growth mutually agreed to extend collaborative research and development for an additional two years. We are currently in the process of providing specifications and costs to build out 5,000 square feet of aeroponic production space at the Tweed facility in Smiths Falls. As part of the design-build process, the Company will be incorporating prototype testing of our advanced racking system with integrated proprietary HVAC and LED lighting systems that incorporate the Company's patent pending aeroponic process.

Community Located Agricultural Research Area (CLARA) Design-Build Project

Indoor Harvest, the City of Pasadena and the BUILD partnership participants are eager to get the agreement formalities behind us and move on to the IHC final environmental approval so that work may begin on refitting the facilities. All final legal approvals have been given and the mayor has scheduled it for a November 17, 2015, City Council vote. The agreement may require a second reading and Council vote at the next regularly scheduled session if legally necessary after passage on first reading but that has not been conclusively determined yet.

The CLARA platform has drastically increased its awareness to a National scale. Partly due to the reach of the BUILD partners and more importantly its true structure to attract educational investment in new technologies and community redevelopment that takes into account health impacts for its residents as well as job opportunities. This is a formula we believe to be demonstrably in harmony with long-term economic realities and social needs.

Indoor Harvest's President, John Choo, was invited to the annual Opportunity Finance Network Conference (http://conference.ofn.org/index.html) in Detroit, Michigan by the highly respected Kresge Foundation to represent CLARA along with the BUILD representatives to an audience of community development financial institutions and partnering groups. This is a large stake for Indoor Harvest in the development of Corporate Governance and urban redevelopment.

In closing, our CEO and founder Chad Sykes stated, "After investing over $1,800,000 since our inception in R&D, tooling, developing our products and services as well as taking our Company public, I'm pleased to announce those investments are now generating revenue. We now have executed design-build agreements in place and a sales pipeline coming together. Since we launched our products and services in the third quarter of 2015, we've seen an increase of almost 200% in project deal flow. Based upon the foregoing, we believe that if everything we now expect to happen does come together as anticipated, we could possibly see positive cash flow by mid-2016 and even possibly reach profitability by the end of 2016."

Results of Operations

For the three month period ended September 30, 2015 vs. September 30, 2014

For the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, we had a net loss of $381,587 and $111,075, respectively. The primary driver behind the increase in the loss was attributable to the increase in expenses as noted below.

For the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, we incurred $380,932 and $111,081, respectively, in operating expenses. The increase in our operating expenses is due to increases in costs related to increased payroll costs, depreciation expense, travel expenses, marketing expenses, listing expenses to have our common stock traded on the OTCQB and professional expenses related to being a SEC reporting Company.

Our expenses related to research and development for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 were $5,459 and $20,956, respectively. The reduction in research and development expenses was due to collaborations in which research and development costs are shared.

For the nine month period ended September 30, 2015 vs. September 30, 2014.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, we had a net loss of $971,453 and $314,937, respectively. The primary driver behind the increase in the loss was attributable to the increase in expenses as noted below.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, we incurred $960,734 and $315,086, respectively, in operating expenses. The increase in our operating expenses is due to increases in costs related to increased payroll costs, depreciation expense, travel expenses, marketing expenses, listing expenses to have our common stock traded on the OTCQB and professional expenses related to being a SEC reporting Company.

Our expenses related to research and development for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 were $17,987 and $21,966, respectively. The reduction in research and development expenses was due to collaborations in which research and development costs are shared.

Deferred rent payable at September 30, 2015 was $9,590. Deferred rent payable is the sum of the difference between the monthly rent payment and the straight-line monthly rent expense of an operating lease that contains escalated payments in future periods.

As of September 30, 2015 we had total liabilities of $67,995, while at December 31, 2014, we had total liabilities of $21,245. The increase in liabilities was due to accrued payroll, deferred rent and a $36,100 note payable to Wells Fargo Bank for tooling equipment. The tooling will be used to manufacture our aeroponic AGT fixtures.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

We anticipate taking the following steps to implement our business plan for the next 12 months. Our capital requirements for implementation of these steps are estimated at $5,000,000 as set forth in the table below. For the next 12 months, we anticipate engaging in the following operational activities, although we may vary our plans depending upon operational conditions and available funding:
