NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(1) Basis of Presentation
The consolidated interim financial statements of DGSE Companies, Inc., a Nevada corporation, and its subsidiaries (the 'Company' or 'DGSE'), included herein have been prepared by the Company pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the 'SEC'). Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ('U.S. GAAP') have been condensed or omitted pursuant to the Commission's rules and regulations, although the Company believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. The Company suggests that these financial statements be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018 (such fiscal year, 'Fiscal 2018' and such Annual Report on Form 10-K, the 'Fiscal 2018 10-K'). In the opinion of the management of the Company, the accompanying unaudited interim financial statements contain all adjustments, consisting only of those of a normal recurring nature, necessary to present fairly its results of operations and cash flows for the periods presented. The results of operations for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. Certain reclassifications were made to the prior year's consolidated financial statements to conform to the current year presentation.

(2) Principles of Consolidation and Nature of Operations
DGSE buys and sells jewelry and bullion products to both retail and wholesale customers throughout the United States through its facilities in South Carolina and Texas, and through its various internet sites.

The interim consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All material intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated.

(3) Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
Financial Instruments

The carrying amounts reported in the consolidated balance sheets for cash equivalents, trade receivables, accounts payable, accounts payable related party and accrued expenses approximate fair value because of the immediate or short-term nature of these financial instruments.

Earnings Per Share

Basic earnings per common share is computed by dividing net earnings available to holders of the Company's common stock by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the reporting period. Diluted earnings per share reflect the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock. For the calculation of diluted earnings per share, the basic weighted average number of shares is increased by the dilutive effect of stock options and warrants outstanding determined using the treasury stock method.

Recent Accounting Pronouncement

On January 1, 2019 we adopted the new lease accounting standard in Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-02 ('ASU 2016-02'), Leases (Topic 842), using the modified retrospective method which allows for the application of the transition provisions at the beginning of the period of adoption, rather than at the beginning of the earliest comparative period presented in these consolidated statements. Under the new guidance, lessees are required to recognize 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-of-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 for all leases (with the exception of short-term leases) at the commencement date.

The Company elected certain of the available transition practical expedients, including those that permit it to not reassess (1) whether any expired or existing contracts are or contain leases, (2) the lease classification for any expired or existing leases, and (3) any initial direct costs for any existing leases as of the effective date. The Company did not elect the hindsight practical expedient, which permits entities to use hindsight in determining the lease term and assessing impairment. The most significant impact of the new guidance was the recognition of right-of-use ('ROU') assets and liabilities for operating leases. See Note 9 for additional information.

(8) Revenue Recognition
Revenue is recognized when we transfer promised goods or jewelry and watch repair services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be paid in exchange for those goods and services. The Company's revenue is primarily generated from the sale of finished goods and jewelry and watch repair services through retail, e-commerce or wholesale channels. We generate revenue through the sale of jewelry, rare coins, currency, collectibles, bullion, scrap and the repair of jewelry and watches. The Company's performance obligations underlying such revenue, and the timing of revenue recognition, remains substantially unchanged following the adoption of ASC 606.

ASC 606 provides guidance to identify performance obligations for revenue-generating transactions. The initial guide is to identify the contract with a customer created with the sales invoice or a repair ticket. Secondly, to identify the performance obligations in the contract as we promise to deliver the purchased item, or promised repairs in return for payment or future payment as a receivable. The third guide is determining the transaction price of the contract obligation as in the full ticket price, negotiated price or a repair price. The next step is to allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations as we designate a separate price for each item. The final step in the guidance is to recognize revenue as each performance obligation is satisfied.

The following disaggregation of revenue is listed by sales category:

Revenues for monetary transactions (i.e., cash and receivables) with dealers and the retail public are recognized when the merchandise is delivered and payment has been made either by immediate payment or through a receivable obligation at one of our over the counter retail stores. We also recognize revenue upon the shipment of goods when retail and wholesale customers have fulfilled their obligation to pay, or promise to pay, through e-commerce or phone sales. We have elected to account for shipping and handling costs as fulfillment costs after the customer obtains control of the goods. Our scrap is sold to a local related entity refiner Elemetal. Since Elemetal is local we deliver the scrap to the refiner. The metal is assayed, price is determined from the assay and payment is made usually in one to two days. Revenue is recognized from the sale once payment is received.

We also offer a structured layaway plan. When a retail customer utilizes the layaway plan, we collect a minimum payment of 25% of the sales price, establish a payment schedule for the remaining balance and hold the merchandise as collateral as security against the customer's deposit until all amounts due are paid in full. Revenue for layaway sales is recognized when the merchandise is paid in full and delivered to the retail customer. Layaway revenue is also recognized when a customer fails to pay in accordance with the sales contract and the sales item is returned to inventory with the forfeit of deposited funds, typically after 90 days.

In limited circumstances, we exchange merchandise for similar merchandise and/or monetary consideration with both dealers and retail customers, for which we recognize revenue in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification ('ASC') 845, Nonmonetary Transactions. When we exchange merchandise for similar merchandise and there is no monetary component to the exchange, we do not recognize any revenue. Instead, the basis of the merchandise relinquished becomes the basis of the merchandise received, less any indicated impairment of value of the merchandise relinquished. When we exchange merchandise for similar merchandise and there is a monetary component to the exchange, we recognize revenue to the extent of the monetary assets received and determine the cost of sale based on the ratio of monetary assets received to monetary and non-monetary assets received multiplied by the cost of the assets surrendered.

The Company offers the option of third party financing for customers wishing to borrow money for the purchase. The customer applies on-line with the third party and upon going through the credit check will be approved or denied. If accepted, the customer is allowed to purchase according to the limits set by the financing company. We recognize the revenue of the sale upon the promise of the financing company to pay.

10
We have a return policy (money-back guarantee). The policy covers retail transactions involving jewelry, graded rare coins and currency only. Customers may return jewelry, graded rare coins and currency purchased within 30 days of the receipt of the items for a full refund as long as the items are returned in exactly the same condition as they were delivered. In the case of jewelry, graded rare coins and currency sales on account, customers may cancel the sale within 30 days of making a commitment to purchase the items. The receipt of a deposit and a signed purchase order evidences the commitment. Any customer may return a jewelry item or graded rare coins and currency if they can demonstrate that the item is not authentic, or there was an error in the description of a graded coin or currency piece. Returns are accounted for as a reversal of the original transaction, with the effect of reducing revenues, and cost of sales, and returning the merchandise to inventory. We have established an allowance for estimated returns related to Fiscal 2018 sales, which is based on our review of historical returns experience, and reduces our reported revenues and cost of sales accordingly. As of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, our allowance for returns remained the same at $28,402 and $28,402, respectively.

(9) Leases
On February 25, 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (ASC 842). We adopted ASC 842 on January 1, 2019, by applying its provisions prospectively. The financial results reported in periods prior to January 1, 2019 are unchanged. Upon adoption, we recognized all of our leases on the balance sheet as right-of-use assets and lease liabilities. For income statement purposes, the FASB retained a duel model, requiring leases to be classified as either operating of finance. Classification is based on certain criteria and we have determined that all of our retail building leases fall into the operating lease category. Our leases are included in our consolidated balance sheet as right-of-use assets along with the the current operating lease liabilities and long-term operating lease liabilities.

The Company recognized $1,994,840 of operating lease right-of-use assets, $446,462 in short-term operating lease liabilities and $1,609,891 in long-term operating lease liabilities on the consolidated sheet upon adoption of the new standard. The operating lease liabilities were determined based on the present value of the remaining minimum rental payments and the operating lease right-of-use asset was determined based on the value of the lease liabilities, adjusted for deferred rent balances of $61,500, which were previously included in other liabilities.

In determining our right-of-use assets and lease liabilities, we apply a discount rate to the minimum lease payments within each lease agreement. ASC 842 requires us to use the rate of interest that a lessee would have to pay to borrow on a collateralized basis over a similar term an amount equal to the lease payments in a similar economic environment. If we cannot readily determine the discount rate implicit in the lease agreement, we utilize our incremental borrowing rate.

The Company has five operating leases, four in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and one in Charleston South Carolina. We have two leases expiring next year. Our Euless, Texas lease expires March 31, 2020, with an option for an additional five years which we are reasonably certain to exercise. Our Southlake, Texas location expires July 31, 2020, and with no current options. We will evaluate whether to continue to lease in the present location. Our lease on the main flagship store located at 13022 Preston Road, Dallas, Texas will be expiring October 31, 2021 with no current lease options. The Grand Prairie, Texas lease expires June 30, 2022, and has no current lease options. On April 19, 2018, we entered into an agreement with the landlord in Charleston, South Carolina, to increase the rental space by 2,104 square feet by taking over the vacant suite next door. The lease was amended to include the new space and extended to April 30, 2025. All five leases are triple net leases that we pay our proportionate amount of common area maintenance, property taxes and property insurance. Our total leasing costs for the three months ending March 31, 2019 was $174,347, which consists of $134,595 of rental lease expense and $39,752 of variable lease costs.

As of March 31, 2019, the weighted average remaining lease term and weighted average discount rate for operating leases was 3.1 years and 5.5%, respectively. The Company's future operating lease obligations that have not yet commenced are immaterial. For the period ending March 31, 2019, the Company's cash paid for operating lease liabilities was $136,260.

For the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 there were approximately 15,000 stock options excluded from the earnings per share calculation because their impact is antidilutive.

(11) Stock-Based Compensation
The Company accounts for share-based compensation by measuring the cost of the employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments, including grants of stock options, based on the fair value of the award at the date of grant. In addition, to the extent that the Company receives an excess tax benefit upon exercise of an award, such benefit is reflected as cash flow from financing activities in the consolidated statement of cash flows.

Stock-based compensation expense for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018 was $0 and $0, respectively.

(12) Related Party Transactions
Through a series of transactions beginning in 2010, Elemetal, NTR and Truscott ('Related Entities') became the largest shareholders of our common stock, par value $0.01 per share. A certain Related Entity has been DGSE's primary refiner and bullion trading partner. In the three months ended March 31, 2019, 10.4% of sales and 10.8% of purchases were transactions with a certain Related Entity, and in the same period of 2018, these transactions represented 10% of DGSE's sales and 2% of DGSE's purchases. On December 9, 2016, DGSE and a certain Related Entity closed the transactions contemplated by the Debt Exchange Agreement whereby DGSE issued a certain Related Entity 8,536,585 shares of its common stock and a warrant to purchase an additional 1,000,000 shares to be exercised within two years after December 9, 2016, in exchange for the cancellation and forgiveness of $3,500,000 of trade payables owed to a certain Related Entity as a result of bullion-related transactions. As of March 31, 2019, the Company was obligated to pay $3,075,120 to the certain Related Entity as a trade payable. As of December 31, 2018, the Company was obligated to pay $3,088,973 to the certain Related Entity as a trade payable. For the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company paid the Related Entities $34,549 and $46,882, respectively, in interest on the Company's outstanding payable.

(13) Sales and Use Tax
The Texas Comptroller conducted a sales and use tax audit of our Texas operations with respect to the period July 1, 2013 through December 31, 2016. The audit was finalized and a determination was made on April 2, 2018, that we owed a total of $17,294, which includes interest and penalties. An initial reserve of $70,000 was established at December 31, 2017 to cover any liability. That reserve was reduced to the amount owed of $17,294 for the accompanying consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2018.

Results of Operations

General

We buy and sell jewelry, diamonds, fine watches, rare coins and currency, precious metal bullion products, scrap gold, silver, platinum and palladium as well as collectibles and other valuables. Our customers include individual consumers, dealers and institutions throughout the United States.

Many aspects of our business are impacted by changes in precious metals pricing which rise and fall based upon global supply and demand dynamics, with the greatest impact relating to gold. According to the London PM Fix, the price of gold started Fiscal year 2018 at $1,303 an ounce and climbed to $1,353 by April of 2018. Like the volatility in recent years, the price receded to $1,175 by August only to rebound to $1,283 an ounce by December 31, 2018. The first quarter of Fiscal 2019 brought some slight gains ending March 31, 2019 at $1,295 an ounce. The volatility was still prevalent during the quarter but the general overall trend was slightly upward.

13
The market for buying and selling pre-owned or 'scrap' gold has been negative during the past several years. Scrap gold purchases have historically been a critical profit engine for all of our locations, and our marketing strategy will continue to make this a significant impact on our revenue, profitability and long-term growth plans.

Following a leadership change in mid-December 2016, we eschewed the unsuccessful strategies of recent years and returned to our roots: buying and selling jewelry and timepieces at exceptional prices. Our strategy is to be an information resource for clients, bringing transparency to purchase and sale transactions, and offer value and liquidity to those seeking to buy, sell or trade jewelry, watches, diamonds or coins.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2019 compared to Three Months Ended March 31, 2018

Revenues. Revenues related to continuing operations increased by $1,963,658 or 14%, during the three months ended March 31, 2019, to $16,019,530, as compared to $14,055,872 during the same period in 2018. Bullion/rare coin sales increased 41% offset by a 14% decrease in jewlelry sales and a slight decrease in scrap amd other sales compared with the prior year quarter. Bullion/rare coin sales increased $2,884,395 for the quarter ending March 31, 2019 as compared to the quarter ending March 31, 2018 due primarily to the addition of a new large customer. The decrease in jewelry, scrap and other sales is due primarily to the volatility of the price of gold in the market.

Gross Profit. For the three months ended March 31, 2019, gross profit decreased by $283,524, to $2,218,482 as compared to $2,502,006 during the same period in 2018. The decrease in total gross profit dollars was due primarily to the decrease in the jewelry and bullion/rare coin margins. Our new large customer, as first evidenced in the above Revenues paragraph, brings additional revenues but with a lower margin, therefore decreasing the overall gross profit margin to bullion/rare coin. As a percentage of revenue, total gross margin decreased to 13.8% compared to 17.8% during the same period for the prior year.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses. For the three months ended March 31, 2019, Selling, General and Administrative ('SG&A') expenses decreased by $267,327, or 13%, to $1,741,340, as compared to $2,008,667 during the same period in 2018. The decrease in SG&A was achieved primarily through the decrease in bonuses of $115,096 and the decrease in personal property taxes of $141,379. The reduction in bonuses was due to the elimination of the bonus program for store managers and key personnel. The decrease in personal property taxes of $141,379 was primarily due to unrecorded personal property tax liability at year end December 31, 2017. The tax jurisdiction changed and notification of the liability was received after the filing of the year ending December 31, 2017 10-K.

Depreciation and Amortization. For the three months ended March 31, 2019, depreciation and amortization expense was $74,324 compared to $89,752 to the same period in 2018, a decrease of $15,428, or 17%. Amortization increased $14,000 for the three months ending March 31, 2019 compared to the same period in 2018. The increase is due to the amortization of the point-of-sale system we implemented starting April 1, 2018. The decrease in depreciation of $29,428 from the three months ending March 31, 2019 compared to the three months ending March 31, 2018 is primarily due to assets that are fully depreciated but still in-service.

Interest Expense. For the three months ended March 31, 2019, interest expense was $34,549, a decrease of $12,333, or 26%, compared to $46,882 during the same period in 2018. The decrease is primarily due to the continual pay down of the accounts payable - trade, related party outstanding balance of $3,075,120.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

During the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, cash flows used in operating activities totaled $960,206 and $281,840, respectively, an increase of $678,366. Cash used in operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2019, was driven largely by the reduction of accounts payable - trade and accrued expenses of $564,868, the increase of inventories of $550,567 and an increase in prepaid expenses of $185,536 offset by net income of $354,635. Cash used in operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2018, was driven largely by the reduction of accounts payable - trade and accrued expenses of $308,133, the reduction of accounts payable - trade, related party of $212,616, the increase of prepaid expenses of $188,287, the increase in trade receivables of $209,217 and the increase in trade receivables, related party of $39,215, offset by the increase in customer deposits and other liabilities of $155,458 and net income of $346,208.

During the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, cash flows used in investing activities totaled $14,175 and $86,074, respectively, a decrease of $71,899. The use of cash in investing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2019 was the result of buildout expenses associated with additional space leased for our Charleston, South Carolina location. The use of cash in investing activities during the three months ended March 31, 2018 was the result of the continuing buildout expenses to the Midtown location at 13022 Preston Road, Dallas, Texas.

During the three months ended March 31, 2019 and 2018, cash flows used in financing activities totaled $0 and $1,181 respectively, a reduction of $1,181. The use of cash in financing activities during the period ending March 31, 2018 was the result of payments toward capital lease obligations.

15
We expect our capital expenditures to total approximately $85,000 during the next twelve months. These expenditures will be largely driven by the purchase of additional components of our new point-of-sale system and the continued buildout of the additional suite for our Charleston, South Carolina location. The new point-of-sale system was designed and built specifically for DGSE and rolled out April 1, 2018. As of March 31, 2019, there were no commitments outstanding, except for the POS system and the suite buildout, for capital expenditures.

From time to time, we have adjusted our inventory levels to meet seasonal demand or in order to meet working capital requirements. Management believes that if additional working capital is required, additional loans can be obtained from individuals or from commercial banks. If necessary, inventory levels may be adjusted in order to meet unforeseen working capital requirements

The Texas Comptroller conducted a sales and use tax audit of our Texas operations with respect to the period July 1, 2013 through December 31, 2016. The audit was finalized and a determination was made on April 2, 2018, that we owed a total of $17,294, which includes interest and penalties. An initial reserve of $70,000 was established at December 31, 2017 to cover any liability. That reserve was reduced to the amount owed of $17,294 for the accompanying consolidated balance sheet as of March 31, 2018. The balance due of $17,294 was paid in full on April 4, 2018.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to stockholders.
