FUSION TELECOMMUNICATIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
 
Note 1.                      Organization and Business
 
Fusion Telecommunications International, Inc. is a Delaware corporation incorporated in September 1997 (“Fusion” and together with its subsidiaries, the “Company”, “we,” “us,” and “our”).  The Company is a provider of integrated cloud solutions, including cloud voice, cloud connectivity, cloud infrastructure, cloud computing, and managed cloud-based applications to businesses of all sizes, and voice over IP (“VoIP”) - based voice services to other carriers.  The Company currently operates in two business segments: Business Services and Carrier Services.

Note 2.                      Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in all material respects in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information. Pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP have been condensed or omitted. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015.

Because certain information and footnote disclosures have been condensed or omitted, these unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes contained in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015 as filed with the SEC.  In management’s opinion, all normal and recurring adjustments considered necessary for a fair presentation of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented have been included. Management believes that the disclosures made in these unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements are adequate to make the information not misleading. The results for the three months ended March 31, 2016 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.

Significant Accounting Policies

For a detailed discussion of significant accounting policies, please refer to our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015. There have been no material changes in our accounting policies during the quarter ended March 31, 2016.

Principles of Consolidation

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements include the accounts of Fusion and each of its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
 
Use of Estimates
 
The preparation of condensed consolidated interim financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported. Key estimates include: the recognition of revenue, allowance for doubtful accounts; asset lives used in computing depreciation and amortization; valuation of intangible assets; accounting for stock options and other equity awards, particularly related to fair value estimates; accounting for income taxes; contingencies; and litigation. While management believes that such estimates are reasonable when considered in conjunction with the financial position and results of operations of the Company taken as a whole, actual results could differ from those estimates, and such differences could be material.
 
Reclassifications

Certain reclassifications have been made to the prior years’ financial statements in order to conform to the current year’s presentation. The reclassifications had no impact on net earnings previously reported.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents include cash on deposit and short-term, highly-liquid investments with maturities of three months or less on the date of purchase. As of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the carrying value of cash and cash equivalents approximates fair value due to the short period to maturity.

Restricted Cash

Restricted cash consists primarily of cash held in reserve pursuant to the terms of financing arrangements and certificates of deposit that serve to collateralize outstanding letters of credit.  Restricted cash is recorded as current or non-current assets in the consolidated balance sheets depending on the duration of the restriction and the purpose for which the restriction exists.

At March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the Company had certificates of deposit collateralizing a letter of credit in the aggregate amount of approximately $27,000 and $165,000, respectively. The letter of credit is required as security for one of the Company’s non-cancelable operating leases for office facilities.

Fair value of Financial Instruments
 
At March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the carrying value of the Company’s accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximates its fair value due to the short term nature of these financial instruments.

Long-Lived Asset Impairment

The Company periodically reviews long-lived assets, including intangible assets subject to amortization, for possible impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate, in management’s judgment, that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.  Recoverability is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset or asset group to the estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated by such asset or asset group. If the undiscounted cash flows are less than the carrying amount of the asset or asset group, an impairment loss is recognized for the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset or asset group exceeds its fair value. The Company did not record any impairment charges during the three months ended March 31, 2016 or 2015, as there were no indicators of impairment.

Goodwill

Goodwill represents the excess of consideration paid over the fair value of net assets acquired in business combinations. Goodwill is not amortized and is tested for impairment on an annual basis in the fourth quarter of each fiscal year and whenever events or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of a reporting unit below its carrying amount.  A significant amount of judgment is involved in determining if an indicator of impairment has occurred. Such indicators include, but are not limited to, deterioration in general economic conditions, adverse changes in the markets in which a company operates, increases in input costs that have negative effects on earnings and cash flows, or a trend of negative or declining cash flows over multiple periods.

In testing goodwill for impairment, the Company has the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether the existence of events or circumstances leads to a determination that it is more likely than not (more than 50%) that the estimated fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. If the Company elects to perform a qualitative assessment and determines that an impairment is more likely than not, it is then required to perform a quantitative impairment test, otherwise no further analysis is required. The Company also may elect not to perform the qualitative assessment and, instead, proceed directly to the quantitative impairment test.
 
Under the goodwill two-step quantitative impairment test, the Company reviews for impairment the fair value of each reporting unit to its carrying value. The Company has determined that its reporting units are its operating segments (See Note 18).  The first step compares the fair value of a reporting unit with its carrying amount, including goodwill. If the carrying value of the reporting unit exceeds its fair value, the second step would be conducted; otherwise, no further steps are necessary as no potential impairment exists. The second step compares the implied fair value of the reporting unit goodwill with the carrying amount of that goodwill. Any excess of the reporting unit goodwill carrying value over the respective implied fair value is recognized as an impairment loss. At March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively, goodwill was approximately $27.0 million.  All of the Company’s goodwill is attributable to its ‘Business Services’ segment.  There was no change in goodwill as a result of adjustments to purchase price allocations of previous acquisitions during the quarter ended March 31, 2016. There was no impairment charge recorded for goodwill during the three months ended March 31, 2016 or 2015, as there were no indicators of impairment.

Advertising and Marketing Costs
 
Costs related to advertising and marketing are expensed as incurred and included in selling, general and administrative expenses in our condensed consolidated statements of operations. Our advertising and marketing expense was approximately $172,000 and $115,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Income Taxes

The Company complies with accounting and reporting requirements with respect to accounting for income taxes, which require an asset and liability approach to financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are computed for differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities that will result in future taxable or deductible amounts, based on enacted tax laws and rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred income tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

In accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company is required to determine whether a tax position of the Company is more likely than not to be sustained upon examination by the applicable taxing authority, including resolution of any related appeals or litigation processes, based on the technical merits of the position. The tax benefit to be recognized is measured as the largest amount of benefit that is greater than fifty percent likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement. Derecognition of a tax benefit previously recognized could result in the Company recording a tax liability that would reduce net assets. Based on its analysis, the Company has determined that it has not incurred any liability for unrecognized tax benefits as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015.  The Company is subject to income tax examinations by major taxing authorities for all tax years since 2011 and its tax returns may be subject to review and

adjustment at a later date based on factors including, but not limited to, on-going analyses of and changes to tax laws, regulations and interpretations thereof.  No interest expense or penalties have been recognized as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015.  During the three month ended March 31, 2016 and 2015, the Company recognized no adjustments for uncertain tax positions.

Stock-Based Compensation

The Company recognizes expense for its employee stock-based compensation based on the fair value of the awards that are granted. The fair values of stock options are estimated at the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option valuation model. The use of the Black-Scholes option valuation model requires the input of subjective assumptions. Measured compensation cost, net of estimated forfeitures, is recognized ratably over the vesting period of the related stock-based compensation award.  For transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received from non-employees in return for the issuance of equity instruments, the expense is recognized in the period when the goods and services are received at the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is determined to be a more reliable measurement.

New and Recently Adopted Accounting Pronouncements
 
In February 2016, the Financial Accounting Standard Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-2, Leases, which is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2018 with early adoption permitted. Under ASU 2016-02, lessees will be required to recognize for all leases at the commencement date a lease liability, which is a lessee’s obligation to make lease payments arising from a lease measured on a discounted basis, and a right –to-use asset, which is an asset that represents the lessee’s right to use or control the use of a specified asset for the lease term. The Company is currently evaluating the effect that the new guidance will have on its financial statements and related disclosures.

In November 2015, FASB issued ASU No. 2015-17, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes (ASU 2015-17), which simplifies the presentation of deferred income taxes by requiring deferred tax assets and liabilities be classified as noncurrent on the balance sheet. The updated standard is effective beginning on January 1, 2017 with early application permitted as of the beginning of any interim or annual reporting period. The Company does not expect this guidance to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

In September 2015, FASB issued guidance that eliminates the requirement for an acquirer in a business combination to account for measurement-period adjustments retrospectively. Instead, acquirers must recognize measurement-period adjustments during the period in which they determine the amounts, including the effect on earnings of any amounts they would have recorded in previous periods if the accounting had been completed at the acquisition date. This guidance is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2015.  The adoption of this guidance did not have a material impact on the Company’s  consolidated financial statements.
 
In April 2015, FASB issued guidance requiring an entity to present debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts. This guidance was effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2015.  The Company adopted this guidance as of January 1, 2016 and applied the provision retrospectively for fiscal 2015 (See to Note 11). The impact of adopting this guidance on the Company's consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2015 was a decrease to other assets of approximately $1.0 million, and a decrease to notes payable – non-related party of $1.0 million.
 
In May 2014, FASB issued guidance that outlines a single comprehensive model for entities to use in accounting for revenue arising from contracts with customers and supersedes most recent current revenue recognition guidance, including industry-specific guidance. The core principle of the revenue model is that an entity recognizes revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance also specifies the accounting for certain incremental costs of obtaining a contract and costs to fulfill a contract with a customer. Entities have the option of applying either a full retrospective approach to all periods presented or a modified approach that reflects differences prior to the date of adoption as an adjustment to equity. In April 2015, FASB deferred the effective date of this guidance until January 1, 2018 and the Company is currently assessing the impact of this guidance on its consolidated financial statements.

Note 3.                      Loss per share
 
Basic and diluted loss per share for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 is computed by dividing (i) loss available to common stockholders, adjusted by $0.0 million and $0.7 million, respectively, on the fair value of the Company’s derivative liability  that was attributable to 728,333 outstanding warrants with a nominal exercise price that were exercised in August 2015 and dividends on preferred stock, by (ii) the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period, increased by the number of common shares underlying such warrants with a nominal exercise price as if such exercise had occurred at the beginning of the year.  

The following table sets forth the computation for basic and diluted net income per share for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015:

Note 12.  Due to RootAxcess Seller

In connection with the purchase of the assets of RootAxcess, LLC (“RootAxcess”) in September 2015, the Company held back $0.7 million against potential claims arising from breaches of representation and warranties. Of such amount, $0.4 million is to be paid to the seller in six equal monthly installments of $66,667 on the three, six, nine, twelve, fifteen and eighteen month anniversary of the closing date.  In addition, the Company held back $0.3 million to be paid in three equal installments of $100,000 on each of the twelve, fifteen, and eighteen month anniversary of the closing date.  To the extent there is a unresolved claim notice pending (as defined in the asset purchase agreement), the monthly installment payable to seller immediately following the delivery of such claim notice may, at the Company’s reasonable discretion, be reduced by the amount in dispute under the claim notice and such amount will continue to be held by the Company until resolved, at which point, the Company will disburse the withheld amount in accordance with such resolution.

On March 31, 2016, the Company made a payment of $66,667 to the sellers in connection with the terms of the holdback agreement. At March 31, 2016, the remaining balance due is $566,667.
 
Note 13.     Secured Credit Facility

In August 2015, the Company entered into a $40.0 million credit facility with Opus Bank, which facility was amended and restated by the Secured Credit Facility.   The Secured Credit Facility consists of a $15.0 million, four-year credit facility, and a $25.0 million, five-year term loan. The maturity date of amounts borrowed under the revolving facility is August 28, 2019, and the maturity date of amounts borrowed under the term loan is August 28, 2020.

For the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company had outstanding $15.0 million under the revolver and $25.0 million under the term loan.  For the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company recognized interest expense of approximately $480,278 at a monthy interest rate of 4.75%.  The interest rate is calculated as the higher of (a) the rate of interest in effect for such day as publicly announced from time to time by the Wall Street Journal as its “prime rate” (or the average prime rate if a high and a low prime rate are therein reported) plus the Applicable Margin (as defined in the Amended Credit Facility) in effect at such time, or (b) 3.25% plus the Applicable Margin.
 
Note 14.     Derivative Liability

The Company has issued warrants to purchase shares of Fusion’s common stock in connection with certain debt and equity financing transactions. These warrants are accounted for in accordance with the guidance contained in ASC Topic 815, ‘Derivatives and Hedging’ (“ASC 815”).  For warrant instruments that do not meet an exclusion from derivative accounting, the Company classifies the warrant instrument as a liability at its fair value and adjusts the instrument to fair value at each reporting period. This liability is subject to re-measurement at each balance sheet date until the warrant is exercised or expires, and any change in fair value is recognized in the Company’s statement of operations.  In this regard, the Company has 584,834 outstanding warrants which provide for a downward adjustment of the exercise price if the Company were to issue common stock at an issuance price or issue convertible debt or equity securities with an exercise price that is less than the exercise price for these warrants. In addition, in connection with the sale of the certain notes under the original version of the Praesidian credit facility, the Company issued nominal warrants to the original lenders to purchase an aggregate of 728,333 shares of its common stock.  The fair values of these warrants have been estimated using option pricing and other valuation models, and the quoted market price of Fusion’s common stock.

At March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, the fair value of the derivative was $431,633 and $953,005, respectively.  During the quarter ended March 31, 2016, the Company recognized a gain on the change in the fair value of this derivative of approximately $1.0 million offset by a loss of approximately $0.8 million as a result of the adjustment discussed below, and a loss of $1.2 million in the quarter ended March 31, 2015.

During the three months ended March 31, 2016, the Company adjusted the valuation of its derivative liability for warrants issued in December 2013 and January 2014 and for changes to its valuation of warrants exercised during 2015. The amount of the adjustment was $772,022 impact on the condensed consolidated statements of operations resulting from the loss on the change in the fair value of the derivative and $338,972 impact to capital in excess of par in the condensed consolidated balance sheets (see Note 20). The Company has evaluated these adjustments in accordance with ASC 250-10-S99, SEC Materials (formerly SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin 99, Materiality) and concluded that both quantitatively and qualitatively the adjustments were not material. These adjustments were also evaluated by management in their assessment of internal controls over financial reporting.

Common Stock

The Company is authorized to issue 50,000,000 shares of its common stock. As of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, 14,810,917 and 12,788,971 shares of its common stock were issued and outstanding, respectively.

During the quarter ended March 31, 2016, the Company issued an aggregate of 30,000 shares of common stock to an employee in lieu of a cash bonus valued at $51,900. In addition, the Board of Directors declared a dividend of $231,359 related to the Company’s Series B-2 Preferred Stock, which, in accordance with the terms of the Series B-2 Preferred Stock, was paid in the form of 125,279 shares of common stock. Also, certain holders of our Series B-2 Preferred Stock elected to convert their 6,000 shares of preferred stock into an aggregate of 1,866,667 shares of Fusion’s common stock, including 666,667 shares of common stock which were issued as a payment of additional dividends for the conversion of their Series B-2 Preferred Stock holdings into Fusion’s common stock. The additional shares issued were valued at the closing market price at the date of issuance of $1.80 per share or $1.2 million.
 
On May 9, 2016, the Company received a staff determination letter from Nasdaq (“Nasdaq”) stating that the Company was not in compliance with its rules for continued listing, Rule 5635(b), because it violated the shareholder approval requirement. The technical violation results from the recent purchase of 1,834,862 shares of the Company’s common stock by Unterberg Technology Partners, L.P. (“Unterberg”) in December 2015, which when aggregated with the common shares underlying of the Company’s Series B Preferred Stock held by Unterberg (the common shares were ultimately issued in February 2016, see note 3), the amount owned by Unterberg exceeded the level allowed by Nasdaq without a prior shareholder vote.   The Nasdaq letter indicates that the Company has forty-five (45) calendar days to submit a plan to regain compliance. If such a plan is timely submitted by the Company, the Nasdaq Staff may grant the Company up to 180 calendar days from May 9, 2016 to regain compliance. The Nasdaq notification has no current effect on the listing of the Company’s common stock. The Company is reviewing various ways to correct the technical violation, including seeking approval of the transaction in question by its shareholders. The Company has available options to resolve this technical violation which will not require a cash redemption.
 
Preferred Stock

The Company is authorized to issue up to 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock. As of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015 there was 5,045 shares of Series A Preferred Stock issued and outstanding, respectively. In addition, there were 12,279 and 18,279 shares of Series B-2 Preferred Stock issued and outstanding as of March 31, 2016 and December 31, 2015, respectively.

The holders of the Series A Preferred Stock are entitled to receive cumulative dividends of 8% per annum payable in arrears, when and if declared by the Fusion’s Board of Directors, on January 1 of each year. As of March 31, 2016, no dividend had been declared by Fusion’s Board with respect to the Series A Preferred Stock, and the Company had accumulated approximately $4.4 million of preferred stock dividends. 

Commencing January 1, 2016, Fusion has the right to force the conversion of the Series B-2 Preferred Stock into Fusion common stock at a conversion price of $5.00 per share; provided that the volume weighted average price for its common stock is at least $12.50 for ten consecutive trading days.

Note 17.    Commitments and Contingencies
 
Legal matters
 
From time to time, the Company may be involved in a variety of claims, lawsuits, investigations and proceedings relating to contractual disputes, employment matters, regulatory and compliance matters, intellectual property rights and other litigation arising in the ordinary course of business.  Defending such proceedings can be costly and can impose a significant burden on management and employees. The Company does not expect that the outcome of any such claims or actions will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s liquidity, results of operations or financial condition. As of March 31, 2016, the Company did not have any significant ongoing legal matters.

Operating segments are defined under U.S. GAAP as components of an enterprise for which separate financial information is available and evaluated regularly by a company's chief operating decision maker ("CODM") in deciding how to allocate resources and assess performance.

The Company has two reportable segments – “Business Services” and “Carrier Services”.  These segments are organized by the products and services that are sold and the customers that are served.  The Company measures and evaluates its reportable segments based on revenues and gross profit margins.  The Company’s measurement of segment profit exclude the Company’s executive, administrative and support costs.  The accounting policies of the segments are the same as those described in Note 2, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, of the audited consolidated financial statements included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015.  The Company’s segments and their principal activities consist of the following:

Business Services

Through this operating segment, the Company provides cloud communications, cloud connectivity, cloud storage and cloud security solutions to small, medium and large businesses. These services are sold through the Company’s direct sales force and its partner sales channel, which utilizes the efforts of independent third-party distributors to sell the Company’s products and services. The Business Services segment includes the Company’s acquisition of the assets of RootAxcess that was completed as of September 30, 2015, and its acquisition of the stock of various Fidelity companies on December 8, 2015.
 
Carrier Services

Carrier Services includes the termination of domestic and international carrier traffic utilizing primarily VoIP technology.  VoIP permits a less costly and more rapid interconnection between the Company and international telecommunications carriers, and generally provides better profit margins for the Company than other technologies.  The Company currently interconnects with approximately 370 carriers and vendors, and is working to expand its interconnection relationships, particularly with carriers in emerging markets.
 
Operating segment information for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015 is summarized as follows:

Note 19.    Related Party Transactions

Since March 6, 2014, the Company has engaged a third party to prepare its tax returns and to provide related tax advisory services. Larry Blum, a member of our Board of Directors, is a Senior Advisor and a former partner of that company.
 
Note 20.     Fair Value Disclosures
 
Fair value of financial and non-financial assets and liabilities is defined as an exit price, representing the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. The three-tier hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value, which prioritizes the inputs used in the methodologies of measuring fair value for assets and liabilities, is as follows:
 
Level 1—Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
Level 2—Observable inputs other than quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities
Level 3—No observable pricing inputs in the market

Overview
 
Our Business

We offer a comprehensive suite of cloud communications, cloud connectivity, cloud computing, and managed cloud-based applications solutions to small, medium and large businesses, and offer domestic and international VoIP services to carriers worldwide.  Our advanced, proprietary cloud services platforms, as well as our state-of-the art switching systems, enable the integration of leading edge solutions in the cloud, increasing customer collaboration and productivity by seamlessly connecting employees, partners, customers and vendors.  We currently operate our business in two distinct business segments: Business Services and Carrier Services.
 
In the Business Services segment, we are focused on becoming our business customers’ single source for leveraging the increasing power of the cloud, providing a robust package of what we believe to be the essential services that form the foundation for their successful migration to, and efficient use of, the cloud.  Our core Business Services products and services include cloud voice and  UCaaS, improving communication and collaboration on virtually any device, virtually anywhere, and cloud connectivity services, securely and reliably connecting customers to the cloud with managed network solutions that are designed to increase quality and optimize network efficiency.  Our cloud computing and IaaS solutions, are designed to provide our larger enterprise customers with a platform on which additional cloud services can be layered.  Complemented by storage solutions, as well as SaaS solutions, such security and business continuity, our advanced cloud offerings allow our larger enterprise customers to experience the increased efficiencies and agility delivered by the cloud.  The Company’s cloud-based services are flexible, scalable and rapidly deployed, reducing our customers’ cost of ownership while increasing their productivity.
 
Through our Carrier Services segment, we have agreements with approximately 370 carrier customers and vendors, through which we sell domestic and international voice services to other carriers throughout the world.  Customers include U.S.-based carriers sending voice traffic to international destinations, and foreign carriers sending traffic to the U.S. and internationally.  We also purchase domestic and international voice services from many of our Carrier Services customers.  Our carrier-grade network, advanced switching platform and interconnections with global carriers on six continents also reduce the cost of global voice traffic and expand service delivery capabilities for our Business Services segment.

We manage our business segments based on gross profit and gross margin, which represents net revenue less the cost of revenue, and on net profitability after excluding certain non-cash and non-recurring items.  The majority of our operations, engineering, information systems and support personnel are assigned to either the Business Services or Carrier Services business segment for segment reporting purposes.
 
We continue to increasingly focus our sales and marketing efforts on developing vertically oriented solutions for targeted markets that require the kind of specialized solutions made possible by our state-of-the-art network and advanced services platforms.  Our vertically oriented solutions, which are currently focused on healthcare, legal, hospitality and real estate, offer a substantial opportunity to gain additional market share.   We intend to accelerate the growth of our Business Services segment with the goal of increasing the portion of our total revenue derived from this higher margin and more stable segment.   In addition to lowering the underlying costs of termination, we believe that our Carrier Services segment supports the growth of the Business Services segment by providing enhanced service offerings for business customers and by strengthening its relationships with major service providers throughout the world.

Our Performance

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2016 were $33.2 million, an increase of $7.9 million, or 31.4%, compared to the three months ended March 31, 2015, as a result of an increase in revenues from our Business Services segment of approximately $4.2 million driven primarily by revenues generated from our acquisitions of RootAxcess and Fidelity in the fourth quarter of 2015, and an increase in revenues of $3.7 million from our Carrier Services segment mainly due to a 41.1% increase in the blended rate per minute of traffic terminated and 2.3% increase in the volume of traffic terminated.  We had a net loss for the first three months of 2016 of approximately $2.5 million, compared to net loss of $4.3 million in the same period a year earlier, an improvement of $1.7 million as a result of higher revenues offset by higher cost of revenues of $6 million and selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") of $1.7 million driven primarily by higher salaries and payroll benefits of approximately $1.9 million, offset by a decrease in acquisition integration costs of $0.6 million.

Revenues
 
Consolidated revenues were $33.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to $25.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015, an increase of $7.9 million, or 31.4%.  

Revenues for the Business Services segment were $20.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 as compared to $16.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015.  The increase is primarily attributable to revenue derived from our acquisition of assets from RootAxcess on September 30, 2015 and Fidelity on December 8, 2015.

Carrier services revenue of approximately $12.2 million represents an increase of $3.7 million, or 44.3%, compared to the same period a year ago, mainly due to a 2.3% increase in the volume of traffic terminated and an increase of 41.1% in the blended rate per minute of traffic terminated.

Cost of Revenues and Gross Margin
 
Consolidated cost of revenues was $20 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to $14.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2015.  The increase is due to the costs attributable to revenues resulting from the RootAxcess and Fidelity acquisitions during the last quarter of 2015, and higher rates for the cost of traffic terminated of 44.3% in the Carrier Services segment.
 
Consolidated gross margin was 40% for the three months ended March 31, 2016 compared to 44.5% in the same period for 2015. The decrease is due primarily to approximately $3.9 million of additional costs of traffic terminated by our Carrier Services segment  and an increase of approximately $1.5 million in customer provisioning costs in our Business Services segment.

Gross margin for the Business Services segment was 60.8% for the three months ending March 31, 2016 as compared to 63.7% for the three months ending March 31, 2015. The decrease is due primarily to an increase in costs of services of 35.1% driven primarily by the inclusion of the Fidelity acquisition.

Gross margin for the Carrier Services segment was 4.4% for the three months ended March 31, 2016 as compared to 6.5% in the three months ended March 31, 2015.  The decrease was due to higher cost per minute of traffic terminated of $3.8 million, or 44.3% over the same period a year earlier.

Depreciation and Amortization
 
Depreciation and amortization expense was $2.9 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 as compared to $3.0 million during the same period a year ago. The decrease is the result of the amortization expense of the intangible assets decreasing by $0.5 million as a result of some of the intangible assets being fully amortized, offset, in part, by an increase in depreciation expense of approximately $0.4 million.
 
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2016 was $11.4 million as compared to $9.7 million during the three months ended March 31, 2015.  This increase is the result of higher salaries and employee related benefits of approximately $1.5 million driven primarily by increased headcount associated with our acquisition of Fidelity.

FUSION TELECOMMUNICATIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
Interest Expense
 
Interest expense was approximately $1.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2015. For the quarter ended March 31, 2016, we recognized interest expense of approximately $1.4 million related to senior secured borrowings, $21,300 of interest expense on a related party note, $45,000 in interest expense from our capital lease financing program, and approximately $159,000 in interest expense associated with debt discount and debt issuance costs amortization.

Change in Fair Value of Derivative Liability
 
During the quarter ended March 31, 2016, we recognized a gain on the change in fair value of our derivative liabilities in the amount of approximately $1.0 million offset by a loss of approximately $0.8 million for an adjustment for prior issuances and conversion of warrants (see Notes 14 and 20) compared to a loss in the amount of $1.2 million in the same quarter of 2015.   The gain and loss on the derivative are related to the warrants that we issued to our senior lenders in 2012 and 2013 and to purchasers of our Series B-2 Preferred Stock, the terms of which require them to be treated as liabilities and not as equity instruments.  The changes in their fair value are required to be recorded through the statement of operations at each accounting period.  These warrants are valued using an option pricing model and other valuation models, such that increases in Fusion’s stock price result in a higher valuation of the derivative and a charge to our income statement, and decreases in Fusion’s stock price result in a lower valuation and a gain being recorded in our income statement.

We may be subject to additional fluctuations in our income statement in 2016 and beyond based on changes in Fusion’s stock price and the corresponding changes in fair value of our derivative liabilities associated with the warrants issued in connection with our Series B-2 Preferred Stock.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Since our inception, we have incurred significant net losses. At March 31, 2016, we had working capital of approximately $0.9 million and stockholders’ equity of $12.5 million.  At December 31, 2015, we had working capital of $1.7 million and stockholders’ equity of approximately $14.5 million.  Our consolidated cash balance at March 31, 2016 was $5.9 million as compared to $7.5 million at December 31, 2015.  While we believe we have sufficient cash to fund our operations and meet our operating and debt obligations for the next twelve months, we may be required to raise additional capital to support our business plan. There can be no assurances that such funds will be available to the Company as and when needed or on terms deemed by us to be acceptable.  
 
We have never paid cash dividends on our common stock, and we do not anticipate paying cash dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future. We intend to retain all of our earnings, if any, for general corporate purposes, and, if appropriate, to finance the expansion of our business. Subject to the rights of holders of our outstanding preferred stock, any future determination to pay dividends is at the discretion of Fusion’s Board of Directors, and will be dependent upon our financial condition, operating results, capital requirements, general business conditions, the terms of our credit facilities, limitations under Delaware law and other factors that Fusion’s Board of Directors and senior management consider appropriate.
 
The holders of our Series A Preferred Stock are entitled to receive cumulative dividends of 8% per annum payable in arrears, as and if declared by Fusion’s Board of Directors. The holders of our Series B-2 Preferred Stock are entitled to receive quarterly dividends at an annual rate of 6%.  These dividends can be paid, at the Company’s option, either in cash or, under certain circumstances, in shares of Fusion’s common stock.
 
 
25

 
 
FUSION TELECOMMUNICATIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

Through March 31, 2016, Fusion’s Board had never declared dividends on any series of the Series A Preferred Stock, and, as a result, the Company had accumulated approximately $4.4 million of preferred stock dividends. The Fusion Board of Directors declared a dividend of $231,358 for the three months ended March 31, 2016 on the Series B-2 Preferred Stock, which, as permitted by the terms of the Series B-2 Preferred Stock, was paid in the form of 125,279 shares of Fusion’s common stock.

Secured Credit Facility

In December 2015, the Company entered into the Secured Credit Facility, which facility amended and restated, in its entirety, the $40.0 million credit facility originally entered into by us with Opus Bank in August 2015.    The Secured Credit Facility consists of a $15.0 million credit facility and a $25.0 million term loan.  All borrowings under the Amended Credit Facility bear interest at a rate equal to the higher of (a) the rate of interest in effect for such day as publicly announced from time to time by the Wall Street Journal as its “prime rate” (or the average prime rate if a high and a low prime rate are therein reported) plus the Applicable Margin then in effect at such time, or (b) 3.25% plus the Applicable Margin and are secured by a first priority security interest in all of the assets of Fusion and its subsidiaries, including the capital stock of each such subsidiary. Under the Amended Credit Facility, “Applicable Margin” is calculated based on the ratio of Senior Indebtedness to Adjusted EBITDA (each as defined in the Amended Credit Facility) and ranges from 1.25% to 2.00% based on the ratio level.  In addition, subject to certain limitations, Fusion and certain of its subsidiaries have guaranteed the obligations of the borrower (“Fusion NBS Acquisition Corp.”)  under the Amended Credit Facility, including its obligations to repay all borrowings. The maturity date of amounts borrowed under the credit facility is four years or August 28, 2019, and the maturity date of any amounts borrowed under the term loan is August 28, 2020.  The Amended Credit Facility contains a number of affirmative and negative covenants, including but not limited to, restrictions on paying indebtedness subordinate to borrowings under the Amended Credit Facility, incurring additional indebtedness, making capital expenditures, dividend payments and cash distributions by subsidiaries. The Amended Credit Facility also requires on-going compliance with various financial covenants, including a maximum senior leverage ratio, fixed charge coverage ratio and minimum levels of earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization. Effective December 31, 2015, the Company’s obligation to maintain a minimum unencumbered cash bank balance of no less than $1.0 million at all times was eliminated.

At March 31, 2016, we have outstanding $15.0 million under the Secured Credit Facility and $25.0 million under the term loan.   The Company paid monthly interest at a rate of 4.75%, and paid interest expense of $480,278 during the quarter ended March 31, 2016.  As of March 31, 2016, we were in compliance with all the financial covenants in the Amended Credit Facility.

Praesidian Facility

Simultaneous with the execution of the Secured Credit Agreement, the Company executed the Praesidian Facility. The Praesidian Facility amended and restated the terms of the Third Amended and Restated Securities Purchase Agreement and Security Agreement (the “Third Amendment”).  The Third Amendment amended and restated the terms of second amended and restated agreement, which itself amended and restated earlier versions of this securities purchase agreement.  The Third Amendment, together with each earlier version of this facility are hereinafter collectively referred to as the “Praesidian Facility”).  Specifically, the Praesidian Facility amended the Third Amendment to (i) provide the consent of the continuing lenders to the acquisition of Fidelity (ii) add Fidelity as a guarantor and credit party under the Praesidian Facility, and (iii) modify or eliminate certain of the financial covenants contained in the Third Amendment, including the requirement to maintain a minimum unencumbered cash bank balance of $1.0 million at all times. As of March 31, 2016, we were in compliance with all the financial covenants in the Fourth Amended SPA.

 The following notes have been issued by us under the Praesidian Facility:
 
● 
Series A and B Notes.  The Company sold $6.5 million aggregate principal amount of Series A notes, and $10.0 million aggregate principal amount of Series B notes in October 2012, the proceeds of which were used to finance our acquisition of Network Billing Systems, LLC.

● 
Series C and D Notes. The Company sold $0.5 million aggregate principal amount of Series C notes and $25.0 million aggregate principal amount of Series D notes in December 2013, to finance our acquisition of certain assets of Broadvox.

● 
Series E Notes. The Company sold $5.0 million aggregate principal amount of Series E notes in October 2014 to fund our acquisition of PingTone Communications Inc.

● 
Series F Notes.  The Company sold $9.0 million aggregate principal amount of Series F notes in August 2015 to retire a portion of the approximately $20.0 million of notes held by one of the original lenders.

FUSION TELECOMMUNICATIONS INTERNATIONAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

At March 31, 2016, we had approximately $34.0 million principal amount of notes outstanding under the Fourth Amended SPA.

In the quarter ended March 31, 2016 and March 31, 2015, we paid interest expense on the notes of approximately $0.9 million and $1.3 million, respectively.
 
Related Party Note Payable

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.
 
Disclosure under this section is not required for a smaller reporting company.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.
 
We maintain disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives.

Our management, with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Acting Chief Financial Officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2016.  Based upon that evaluation and subject to the foregoing, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective to accomplish their objectives.

Our Chief Executive Officer and Acting Chief Financial Officer do not expect that our disclosure controls or our internal controls will prevent all error and all fraud. The design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and the benefit of controls must be considered relative to their cost. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that we have detected all of our control issues and all instances of fraud, if any. The design of any system of controls also is based partly on certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving our stated goals under all potential future conditions.

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during our fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2016 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
