1.
Form and Year of Organization.

Organic Sales and Marketing, Inc. (the "Company" or the "Registrant" or the "Issuer") was incorporated in the State of Delaware as Garden Connections, Inc. on August 23, 2003. On April 20, 2005, Garden Connections, Inc. changed its name to Organic Sales and Marketing, Inc. The Company purchased the assets of Garden Connections LLC, a Massachusetts limited liability company in September 2003. The acquisition of the assets of Garden Connections LLC took the form of an exchange agreement whereby all of the outstanding common stock of the Company was exchanged for all of the interests of the respective partners of Garden Connections, LLC. The major reasons for the exchange were that the management of Garden Connections, LLC was desirous of adopting a name that would better describe the mission statement and that the Company could not function as an LLC if its securities were to be publicly held. The exchange rate whereby the partners of the LLC received shares of the Company's common stock was arbitrary and not at arms length. It should be noted that the officers and directors of the Company as a group beneficially own 31.3% of the Company's outstanding common stock and as a result, control the operations of the Company.

(b)
Business of Issuer

Organic Sales and Marketing, Inc. (“OSM” or the “Company”) specializes in the sales and marketing of non-food natural and organically-certified products, including fertilizers, horticultural products, cleaning agents and hand sanitizers.  The Company has positioned itself in the rapidly-growing non-food natural and organic marketplace to capitalize on the large-scale movement away from synthetic non-food products, a movement which has been sparked by widespread evidence concerning the harmful effects to the environment and human health caused by the chemicals used in their manufacture.  Just seven months ago, a report from the President’s Cancer Panel identified agricultural chemical exposure as the third largest risk factor for developing cancer.  OSM has received United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) BioPreferred (federally-managed program designed to increase the purchase and use of renewable, sustainable bio-based products) status for its fertilizers, cleaners and hand sanitizer.

For the past three years, OSM has focused the majority of its selling efforts on federal, regional and local government agencies; military branches, colleges and universities; and laboratories, with much success.  The Company is in a joint marketing effort with industry giants Corning, Inc. and Thermo Fisher Scientific to supply commercial cleaning products, The Company is a contracted vendor for Thermo Fisher Scientific and industrial supply company, W.W. Grainger, both of whom are government service account (GSA) vendors; OSM is also a registered vendor/supplier for the Department of Defense as part of the DOD EMALL.  Considering the distribution base of the latter three channels, coupled with the growing concern of the use of synthetic fertilizers, and the recently passed law in the state of New York, banning chemical pesticides from all school lawns and turf in the state of New York, signed-off by their governor in early 2010, the Company’s target market is potentially thousands if not millions of tons.  That target market is guaranteed to expand exponentially as more legislation aimed at protecting public areas and water supplies is enacted which prohibits the use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides. However, since the Company does not presently have any significant contracts in place, there can be no guarantees that it will meet its goals or projections.

OSM is pursuing a $2.5 million line of credit to take its business to the next level.  The Company will use these funds to:  fund a medley of product marketing programs offered through W. W. Grainger and Thermo Fisher Scientific;  obtain its own GSA account in order to sell directly to the U.S. Department of Energy, U.S. Department of Agriculture and the National Institutes of Health; obtain Green Seal product certification for its fertilizers, horticultural products and cleaners; pursue exclusive contracts with other large industrial giants who have the purchasing power; hire dedicated sales staff for commercial and retail sales; relocate its corporate offices to Rhode Island; and source another liquid EPA approved manufacturing facility in Rhode Island.

OSM was incorporated in Delaware as a C Corporation.  Its corporate headquarters is located at 114 Broadway, Raynham, Massachusetts.  All of its liquid products are manufactured by contract manufacturer, Webco, of Dudley, Massachusetts.  Its non-liquid fertilizer products are manufactured by Land O’Lakes Purina in St. Joseph, MO.

The Company uses the services of well established and experienced sales organizations and distributors to introduce, promote, and sell its line of products on a commission basis. The Company continues to market and sell its Nevr-Dull brand of all natural cleaners.  There is some potential interest with one of Nevr-Dull's worldwide clients.

The Company continues to sell its all natural cleaning products through UNFI (United Natural Foods Inc), one of the leading organic products distributors in the country, based in Providence, RI. Some of the major retail outlets that the Company sell’s to via these distributors or direct are Stop & Shop, Whole Foods, Tops and Giant.. In addition, the Company also sells to Associated Buyers, Barrington, NH which may focus on many of the smaller, independent grocery store chains, colleges, spa’s and health food stores throughout the Northeast. There, of course, can be no absolute assurance that meaningful orders from any of these outlets will continue or increase.
 
The Company continues to sell it own branded Mother Natures Cuisine fertilizers through retail outlets such as Whole Foods, Aubuchon Hardware and independent garden centers.  The Company purchases its proprietary organic fertilizer products from Land O'Lakes Purina Feed Organization ("LOL"), a division of Land O'Lakes, Inc. and labels it under the brand name, Mother Natures Cuisine ™. The packaging contains bilingual instructions. Organic fertilizer sales for the year were far lower than anticipated due to economic pressures. The intrigue and attraction of these items is that they are derived from plant based components, rather than animal or municipal waste.
 
The Company's organically certified insecticide/fungicide product, Garden Guys Garden NEEM, which was first introduced in the spring of 2007, is continually shipping to many of the above named customers in conjunction with the fertilizer products.
 
The Company continues to maintain an e-commerce interest presence hosting five different Websites; www.garden-guys.com; www.mothernaturescuisine.com; www.naturalnevrdull.com; www.osm-inc.com and www.dragonflyorganix.com.

The Company has attained USDA BioPreferred status for many of its commercial cleaning and hand sanitizer products. This distinction continues to open doors for those distributors who sell the government through GSA and other related contracts. The Company has shipped orders to the USDA, Ames, Iowa facility, and the Post Office. The Company anticipates additional interest within various government sectors in the near future. Furthermore, the Company is in discussions with another major national and international distributor who sells to the government.
 
The Company plans to concentrate its marketing efforts solely in the rapidly growing all natural non-food organic arena. The Company believes that consumers are being drawn to organic products by a growing desire for fewer chemicals and additives in their everyday lives. However, there can be no assurance that this trend will translate into sales and profits for the Company.
 
The Company believes that the organic industry, consisting of food and non-food products continues to be one of the fastest growing segments of our economy and that recent decisions by major corporations to make "going green" part of their mission statements could accelerate that growth.
 
A 2009 Organic Industry Survey prepared by the Lieberman Research Group on behalf of the Organic Trade Association showed that in 2008 $24.6 billion was spent on organic food and non-food products, an increase of 17.1% over 2007. The organic non-food segment of the survey showed sales of $1.6 billion or an increase of 39.4% over 2008. The survey projects that spending on organic food products could increase from $22.9 billion in 2008 to $27.7 billion in 2010, a projected two year increase of 20.9%.

The 2007 Organic Trade Association survey projected that organic non-food products could grow anywhere from 16% - 40% each year through 2010 and that trend seems to be holding, given growth rates of 26% in 2006 and 2007 and 39.4% in 2008. The Company believes that these explosive growth rates of non-food organic products will continue well into the next decade.
 
The Company specializes in the more rapidly growing non-food organic areas, such as private label premium fertilizers, insecticides and consumer and industrial cleaners, where profit margins can be substantially greater. It understands, however, that external factors such as economic conditions and climatic issues can impact these trends in an unfavorable way and that there can be no assurance that all of its products will follow the same overall upward trend currently underway in the organic industry.
 
The Company has also established important manufacturing relationships with Land O'Lakes for its fertilizer products, secured a licensing agreement with a British based company and has the rights to several proprietary formulas used in its extensive line of cleaning products, outsourced its fulfillment operation to Webco Chemical Co., located in Dudley, Massachusetts, which has the capacity to handle any and all requirements that the Company may have and, as a backup to Webco, the Company also has made arrangements with JNJ Industries, located in Franklin, Massachusetts.
 
The Company will continue to use the radio as the primary source for marketing and creating brand awareness of our non-food, and natural product offerings. Sam Jeffries, the Company's President, hosts a live, weekly three hour Sunday morning garden talk radio show on Greater Media owned WTKK, 96.9FM in Boston, MA. This also creates a medium for the Company to offset some of its radio related expenses by selling air time to potential sponsors and/or advertisers of the radio show.

It must be emphasized that although the Company continues to be very excited about its product lines and its prospects in a rapidly growing and explosive industry, the purchase of the Company's securities carries a significant risk. The Company has not had substantial revenues from operations and has not yet been profitable. While it has built important, strategic relationships with customers and vendors, the outlook remains uncertain in the absence of the receipt of substantial orders or substantial funding. Although the Company believes its overhead to be low, there can be no assurance that it will continue to find sources of working capital to keep operations funded until and even after break even volumes are achieved. It should also be noted that the Company's auditors have included a "going concern" qualification in their opinion (see "Financial Statements").
 
1.
Principal Products and Services and Their Markets

Currently the major all natural products that the Company is selling are all natural cleaners, which include stain remover, odor control, glass cleaner, floor cleaner, degreaser, concrete cleaner, eyeglass cleaner, jewelry cleaner, surface prep and glue cleaner, solely utilizing outside independent sales professionals, as well as an all natural insecticide-fungicide, and organic fertilizers. Since the Company sells non-food, all natural products, the shelf-life of its products can be in excess of one year or more, depending upon storage and climatic conditions. The Company uses a proprietary blend of compounds in its all natural products which are non-toxic, biodegradable and safe for use around children and pets.
 
The Company receives revenues from sales of product on its various websites; products are sold directly  or by independent reps to distributors who then re-sell to retail stores; products sold to retail stores directly or by independent reps, re-selling our organic products to other companies who wish to private label or license our products and the sale of advertising inventory (commercial spots) available to the Company through the radio station that carries the Garden Guys radio talk show.
 
Organic Fertilizer Market:
 
The Company is focusing marketing efforts on organic fertilizers, a rapidly growing segment of the fertilizer industry. In its opinion, nation-wide awareness and the potential impacts of the use of synthetic fertilizers vs. organic fertilizers will continue to have an impact in rising sales of organic fertilizers.  Accordingly, the Company projects some of its greatest growth over the next 3-5 years to potentially be in this arena.
 
By letter dated November 8, 2010 the Company recently entered into an Agreement with Land O’Lakes Purina Feed LLC (LOLPF) to act as its preferred sales agent to promote sales to and solicit and process orders of Products from organic fertilizer customers on behalf of LOLPF in the United States and Canada.  Presently, it is not an exclusive relationship. Under the arrangement, Land O'Lakes Purina Feed Organization will also assist in product registration for each state, manufacturing, logistics, and distribution. They will also provide sales and marketing support for the Company’s efforts as part of the Agreement. The Company believes this will ultimately lead to major sales, as it continues to be introduced into the 35 billion dollar lawn and garden market as reported by the National Gardening Association in its Garden Market Research newsletter. Ultimate product line acceptability will depend on customer demand, so true assurances cannot be made as to the viability of this product line at this point in time.

Organic Based Household Cleaner Market:
 
Other areas which the Company believes hold considerable promise are the residential and commercial cleaner markets. We believe that the momentum in the rise in organic food sales, due primarily to the growing education of how toxic chemicals can have a direct or indirect impact on human health, is carrying over to that of non-food organic products, which may pose similar health hazards and risks. Its weekly radio show allows to, 1)educate consumers about the potential hidden risks of chemical based products, 2)inform listeners about products that offer healthy alternatives to chemical cleaners, including its own and 3)let folks know where these products can be purchased either in store or on-line.
 
Jewelry, Modeling, and Bead Markets:
 
The Company currently supplies one of the major industry distributors, Fire Mountain Gems & Beads, Inc., in Grant Pass, Oregon. Fire Mountain does over 100 million dollars in annual sales and has an extensive customer base. Their customers are some of the major retail jewelry and bead shops in the industry and other distributors within the trade. There is no assurance, however, that these markets will develop for these products.
 
Funeral Industry & Medical Examiners Market:
 
The Company is currently supplying its Funeral Organix product line to Funeral Homes and churches. The Company still expects that this class of trade has strong upside potential because there is a great need for cleaners and deodorizers in this industry due to the large amounts of chemicals currently used by this profession on a daily basis. Preliminary data indicates a strong willingness by the industry to replace chemical products with those that are all natural, chemical-free and environmentally friendly. There is no assurance that these markets will develop significantly for these products. This depends entirely upon product quality, the ability to reach the target market and consumer acceptance. 

Municipalities and Waste Disposal Markets:

Due to the various odor problems that these markets encounter on a daily basis, the Company's Odor Eliminator product offers a solution. This and other products in the Company’s portfolio of all natural products are positioned as having numerous applications in multiple industries such as nursing homes, industrial kitchens, waste management, fishing industry, daycare centers, Montessori schools, kennels, hospice-home care, pet shops, and veterinarian locations. There is no assurance that these markets will develop for these products. This will depend upon product quality, the ability to reach the target market and consumer acceptance.

The Company is capitalizing on the growing interest and desire among consumers for safe, environment-friendly products. To do this, it has developed strategic marketing relationships with manufacturers that offer "green" alternatives to some of the traditional, chemical-based products that are currently being used in various industries. The Company hopes to be the dominant leader in the all natural, non-food organic industry so it is aggressively working with several manufacturing companies to further develop and perfect its growing line of all natural, non-food product offerings. IDue to uncertainties with the safety of rubber mulch, the Company has decided to discontinue its development, sales and marketing of it Terra Rubber brand rubber tire mulch product that can be used in playgrounds, flower beds and gardens.

The last five plus years have been spent establishing what the Company believes to be a strong, solid foundation needed to support the next phase of its business plan. All natural, non-food organic products are growing in demand. The Company's products are targeted to sophisticated, environmentally aware companies and consumers in various markets. The Company believes that strategic affiliations which have been developed with well-established corporations could eventually pave the way for its all natural, non-food organic products to become ubiquitous throughout the country.

The Company is now able to bring its products from its contract manufacturer to consumer with limited financial exposure. It has the added advantage of being able to market these  products not only through its independent marketing associates, but through its own radio show., What with a recognized growing interest in organics, the Garden Guys ®   ensure that brand awareness reaches the consumer through the radio,streaming, podcasting, RSS feed and a weekly newsletter. This creates a multi-faceted, multi-revenue channel model for the Company. Moreover, the Company hopes to add new strategically selected radio personalities and stations to its Garden Guys ®   radio network over the next several years with a reach that goes far beyond the New England area. Because of the knowledge the Company has obtained of how the communications industry works, as a result of the Garden Guys® radio talk show, it believes that this is a very attainable goal. There is no set schedule for this expansion at this time and there can be no assurance that enrolling additional stations will be made easier due to the working knowledge of radio internet or current radio relationships.

3. 
Status of Any Publicly Announced New Products or Services

Currently the Company has a portfolio of approximately 100 items, all of which are company branded products.  The Company will begin to offer its new Egg Wipes under the new brand it developed, Healthier Homestead positioned, but limited to, the farm and fleet trade. The Company will be able to market its products not only through its distributors and independent sales organizations but through the Garden Guys ® radio show which provides a viable channel through the creation of brand awareness on the consumer’s part and a growing interest in organics and natural products. Management believes its all natural non-food products will attract both male and female consumers looking to avoid the health risks and implications that have been found in non-organic or synthetic compounds. Management believes this is a promising trend which is supported by numerous independent articles and surveys which have been conducted some of which have been referenced in other sections of this 10K.

All of these products are manufactured for the Company to its own specifications without any additional research and development costs being incurred. In some cases, the Company will put a contract in place for existing technology already developed by said manufacturer whereby it may see long-term benefits of their research by finding niche markets for a particular product.  The foregoing arrangements greatly limit the Company's financial exposure:

 
o
No research and development costs

 
o
No manufacturing facilities and related costs

 
o
Lower inventory costs and warehousing costs

 
o
Limited employees and staff

4. 
Competition

Because the organic and natural cleaner market is relatively small in comparison to the total organic market, it is a fragmented market, ready for development. The Company believes that Seventh Generation, Inc., Clorox, S.C. Johnson, Mrs. Meyers and 3-M, are its major competitors in the cleaner market.

Competition in lawn and garden organic product sales is equally as intense however few companies have the ability to ship their products cost effectively across the country.  The Company believes its distribution network of LOL/Purina Feed, ThermoFisher Scientific and Grainger can satisfy these concerns. These markets are large and can support many companies offering these and similar organic products. The Company is unique in that it offers a service (the radio program) in addition to a product. It does not know of another company that does this. However, many of the companies that make up the competition in this market are better financed, more experienced, have more recognizable or established brand names, may have better control over their manufacturing and distribution process, have a longer history of servicing the retail and commercial industries and may be better positioned to control sales to large retail outlets and, as a result, realize a dominant or substantial market share.  The Company is in discussions with some large horticultural companies who may want to private label its fertilizers.  These discussions are on-going and may have a material impact on its sales however, since the Company does not presently have any significant contracts in place, there can be no guarantees that these discussions will materialize.

The market for cleaning and garden products is highly competitive. Although these products are natural and that some of which carry USDA BioPreferred designation and therefore distinguishable from most other more established brands, which do contain chemicals, it is possible that many consumers neither care about that fact, nor understand its significance. There are a number of other established providers that have greater resources, including more extensive research and development, marketing and capital than we do and also have greater name recognition and market presence. These competitors could reduce their prices and thereby decrease the demand for the Compmany’s products and technologies. The Company expects competition to intensify in the future, which could also result in price reductions, fewer customers and lower gross profit margins.

Access to retail or commercial opportunities may be restricted due to pre-existing agreements that prohibit these potential vendors from selling its products, or certain retailers may require substantial payments (slotting fees) for shelf space which is beyond the Company's financial capabilities. Such payments are common in the retail industry, but historically, the Company has been successful in mitigating these costs due to the uniqueness of its products.  In the future some existing retailers may require such payments in order for the Company to continue to sell them and new retail outlets may require payments to sell our product.  The Company will treat each opportunity on a case by case basis. It must be emphasized that lack of revenues and somewhat limited financial resources may also have a serious impact on the ability to sell these products in various venues.

5. 
The Sources and Availability of Raw Materials

The Company is not necessarily dependent on any one vendor for its raw materials. All products which are sold and marketed by the Company are fulfilled by its fulfillment companies. Although the Company believes it can secure other suppliers should the need arise, it would expect that the deterioration or cessation of any relationship would have a temporarily adverse effect, until new relationships are satisfactorily in place.

The Company may also run the risk of manufacturer price increases and component shortages. Competition for products or materials in short supply can be intense, and it may not be able to compete effectively against other purchasers who have higher volume requirements or more established relationships. Even if manufacturers have adequate supplies of components, they may be unreliable in meeting delivery schedules, experience their own financial difficulties, provide components of inadequate quality or provide them at prices which reduce our profit. Any problems with our third-party suppliers can be expected to temporarily have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, business, results of operations and continued growth prospects. Our principal suppliers are:

Abott-Action, Inc.

Enzyme Solutions, Inc.

Dependence on a Single or Few Customers
 
The Company currently has several customers. It has developed and continues to develop multiple strategic alliances with several distributors and independent sales organizations. The Company does not anticipate that it will ultimately be dependent on a single customer or small group of customers.

The Importance of Patents, Trademarks, Licenses, Franchises and Concessions Held

To protect its rights to its intellectual property, the Company relies on a combination of trademark and copyright law, patents, trade secret protection, confidentiality agreements, and other contractual arrangements with its employees, affiliates, clients, strategic partners, and others. The protective steps it has taken may be inadequate to deter misappropriation of the Company's proprietary information. The Company may be unable to detect the unauthorized use of, or take appropriate steps to enforce its intellectual property rights. The Company has registered certain of its trademarks in the United States and has pending U.S. applications for other trademarks and patents.

Effective trademark, copyright, patent, and trade secret protection may not be available in every country in which it offers or intends to offer its products or services. In addition, although The Company believes that its proprietary rights do not infringe on the intellectual property rights of others, other parties may assert infringement claims against the Company or claims that we have violated a patent or infringed a copyright, trademark, or other proprietary right belonging to them. Such claims, even if not meritorious, could result in the expenditure of significant time and money on our part which could materially adversely affect the Company's business, results of operations, and financial condition.
 
The Company incorporates certain licensed third-party technology in some if its services. In these license agreements, the licensors have generally agreed to defend, indemnify, and hold the Company harmless with respect to any claim by a third party that the licensed software infringes any patent or other proprietary right. The Company cannot assure that these provisions will be adequate to protect it from infringement claims. The loss or inability to obtain or maintain any of these technology licenses could result in delays in introduction of new services.

The Company has trademark protection for its "Garden Guys Down to Earth Up to Date"(TM) trademark, for its "Dragonfly Organix from the Earth to the World"(TM) brand-name trade mark,for " Mother Natures Cuisine(TM) Feed your Land from Mother Nature" brand name trade mark, and the picture of the "Plate with Garden Hand Fork and Hand Trowel with Gingham Placemat" trade dress. Final action on these applications is pending subject to publication in the Official Gazette.

8. 
Government Approval

Government approval is required for some of the Company's current products. The initial approval process is generally handled by the manufacturer.  Should a manufacturer that registers a product with the Federal Government such as the EPA and then sub-registers said product to the Company, and not meet proper Government approval and not notify the Company of any such wrong doing, this could have a material and financial effect on some of the Company’s products and sales.  The Company has received official notification that it is a participant in the United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) BioPreferred program for some of its cleaners, hand sanitizers, and agricultural products.  BioPreferred is a Federally managed program that aims to increase the purchase and use of renewable, sustainable biobased products.

9. 
Effect of Any Existing or Proposed Government Regulations

Other than normal government regulation that any business encounters, the Company's business is not significantly affected by any government regulations. As a publicly held company, we do have extensive responsibilities and expenses to assure compliance with federal and state securities regulation.

10. 
Research and Development Costs

The cost of Research and Development is borne initially by the manufacturer and built into our manufacturing expense. Since the Company began operations in August 2003 it has spent over one million dollars on market research and development of its markets. The revenues of the Company will be primarily from strategic alliances as described above. Revenues generated, while paying indirectly for research and technology costs accrued to date, will fund the operations of the Company, which includes funding any ongoing research and development.

11. 
Cost and Effects of Compliance With Environmental Laws and Regulations

The Company is not involved in a business which involves the use of materials in a manufacturing stage where such materials are likely to result in the violation of any potential environmental rules and/or regulations. Further, the Company does not own any real property which would lead to potential liability as a land owner. Therefore, the Company does not anticipate that there will be any costs associated with compliance with environmental laws and regulations. The Company does, however, pay registration fees to each state in which it sells its fertilizers and insecticide/fungicide products.

12. 
Employees

As of the date hereof, the Company employs 5 full-time employees and 2 part-time employees. The Company hires independent contractors on an "as needed" basis only. It has no collective bargaining agreements with its employees. The Company believes that its employee relationships are satisfactory. In the long term, the Company will hire additional employees, as needed, based on the growth of the Company.

We will be dependent on our current management team for the foreseeable future. The loss of the services of any member of this management group could have a material adverse effect on our operations and prospects. Our success will be dependent to a substantial degree on Sam Jeffries and other key management personnel. CEO Sam Jeffries' continued involvement is particularly critical. In the event he becomes unavailable, it would have a material adverse effect on operations. At this time, we have no employment agreements in place and we have a "key man" insurance policy on Sam Jeffries, but no one else. The expansion of our business may be hampered by our inability to attract and retain additional qualified personnel, as needed, for the management team. There is no assurance that we can find suitable management personnel or that we will have the financial resources to hire or retain them once found.

The following is a summary description of our capital stock and certain provisions of our certificate of incorporation and by-laws, copies of which have been included as exhibits to this report. The following discussion is qualified in its entirety by reference to such exhibits.

All common shares are equal to each other with respect to voting; dividend rights and liquidation rights. Special meetings may be called by the Board of Directors or by any officer instructed by the directors to call the meeting. Shareholders have no right to call special meetings. Holders of common shares are entitled to one vote at any meeting of the shareholders for each common share they own as of the record date fixed by the Board of Directors. At any meeting of shareholders, a majority of the outstanding common shares represented at the meeting will govern, even if this is substantially less than a majority of common shares outstanding. Directors are elected by a plurality of votes. Holders of shares are entitled to receive such dividends as may be declared by the Board of Directors out of funds legally available therefore; and on liquidation are entitled to participate pro rata in a distribution of assets available for such a distribution to shareholders. Assets for conversion, pre-emptive or other subscriptions are not available for such a distribution to shareholders. Shares do not have cumulative voting rights which mean that the holders of more than fifty percent of the common shares voting for election of directors may elect all the directors, if they choose to do so. In such event, the holders of the remaining shares aggregating less than fifty will not be able to elect directors.

ITEM 6. SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA   Not Applicable

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS; PLAN OF OPERATIONS

Results of Operations
 
Year Ended September 30, 2010, Compared to Year Ended September 30, 2009

Revenues for FY 2010 totaled $224,680 compared to $224,999 for FY 2009. Stable sales growth is mainly due to the company’s efforts to discontinue unprofitable product lines while increasing sales in higher margin lines. The largest growth came from self-branded cleaners using wider distribution networks in 2010, while reducing lower-margin product sales to retail end users versus 2009.
 
Gross profit was 41.7% in FY 2010 compared to 18.4% in FY 2009. The increase in gross margin can be attributed mainly to a concerted effort toward higher-margin, lower cost products via superior distribution networks.

Operating expenses decreased by almost 50% during FY 2010, primarily due to decreases in staffing, advertising costs via radio show and professional consulting.  These reductions were necessary to reduce overhead costs

 
16

 

Other Income/(Expense) was significantly lower in due to no warrants being issued in FY 2010 versus FY 2009.  In FY 2009, warrants were granted to entice investors to participate in our private placement, incurring a warrant expense of $954,837. Interest expense increased 20.9% in FY 2010 when compared to FY 2009 primarily due to the Notes Payable - Related Party increases as discussed in the footnotes to the Financial Statements included in this filing.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash was $46,237 at September 30, 2010 compared to $24,547 in FY 2009 or an increase of $21,690. Net Cash Used in Operating Activities decreased by 50% or $394,085 from the prior fiscal year.  The net loss of the Company of $693,761 is offset, in part, by stock issuances for cash and options granted during the year in the amount of $455,394, with an additional $367,755 in stock issuances for conversion of debt.   Net Cash Provided by Financing Activities was $416,296 in FY 2010 compared to $785,400 in FY 2009 or a decrease of $369,104 or 47% which was due to decreased proceeds from issuance of common stock, offset by increased borrowing from a related party.

Significant Accounting Policies

Financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

Significant accounting policies are defined as those that are reflective of significant judgments and uncertainties, and potentially result in materially different results under different assumptions and conditions and are incorporated in these financial statements. We believe that our significant accounting policies are limited to those described below.

Principles of Accounting
The Company employs the accrual method of accounting for both financial statements and tax purposes. Using the accrual method, revenues and related assets are recognized when earned, and expenses and the related obligations are recognized when incurred. The Company has elected a September 30th year end.

Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Revenue Recognition
We earn our revenues from the distribution of garden and cleaning products to retailers and directly to consumers via our internet site and from advertising contracts. Four basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred or services rendered; (3) the fee is fixed and determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured.

Revenue from garden and cleaning products is recognized upon shipment of the product. The distribution of products is governed by purchase orders or direct sale agreements which fix the price and delivery date.  In accordance with ASC 605-45 “Accounting for Shipping and Handling Fees and Costs,” distribution costs charged to customers are recognized as revenue when the related product is shipped. Advance payments are recorded on the balance sheet as deferred revenue until the revenue recognition criteria is met.

 
17

 

Revenue from radio advertising is derived from three sources, the sale of commercial spots on the Garden Guys radio talk shows, the sponsorship of informative show segments and hosting live remote broadcasts. Revenue from radio advertising is recognized after the commercial has been aired and/or a remote broadcast has taken place. Customers will prepay for radio spots or remote broadcasts at the time they contract with the Company to air their commercials or host a remote broadcast. The Company will carry this prepayment as a liability, until such time as economic performance takes place. Money received is refundable prior to the airing of commercials or the airing of the remote broadcast, adjusted by any production or other direct costs incurred up to that point in time.

Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less at the time of purchase to be cash equivalents. During the past twelve months the Company maintained cash in bank accounts which, at times, exceeded Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation insured limits. The Company has not experienced, nor does it anticipate, any losses on these accounts and believes their risk to be minimal.

Accounts Receivable
The Company carries its accounts receivable at cost less an allowance for doubtful accounts. Periodically, the Company evaluates its accounts receivable and establishes an allowance for doubtful accounts, based on a history of past write-offs and collections and current credit conditions. The Company feels that the entire balance of Accounts Receivable as of September 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009 are collectable and, therefore, no allowance has been taken. The full value of accounts receivable is held as collateral for the Company’s Line of Credit.

Inventory
The inventory is stated at the lower of cost (first-in-first-out method) or market. Inventory items consist of raw material and finished goods. Raw materials consist of labels, bottles, sprayers, fertilizers and shipping materials. Finished goods consist of fertilizer bags and bottles of organic cleaning products ready for shipment. The inventory consists of newly purchased items; therefore, there is currently no allowance for excess or obsolete inventory. The full value of inventory is held as collateral for the Company’s Line of Credit.

Prepaid Expenses
Business expenses, including consulting expenses, that are paid for in advance of services being rendered are treated as prepaid expenses. On occasion, the Company pays for prepaid expenses with common stock. When these transactions occur, they are identified as negative components of stockholders’ equity.

Fixed Assets
Fixed assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. The Company has elected to capitalize and depreciate any fixed asset item costing in excess of $1,000.  Expenditures for minor replacements, maintenance and repairs which do not increase the useful lives of the property and equipment are charged to operations as incurred. Major additions and improvements are capitalized. Depreciation and amortization are computed using the straight-line method over estimated useful lives of three to seven years. The full value of fixed assets is held as collateral for the Company's Line of Credit.

 
18

 

Advertising
The Company follows the policy of charging the costs of advertising to expense as incurred. Advertising expense primarily consists of the Company’s three hour weekly Garden Guys radio call in program with Greater Media and Citadel Communications, slotting fee expense, display case costs, samples and trade show participation. The total advertising expense for the radio show contracts was $54,200 and $209,615 for the twelve months ended September 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009, respectively. In addition, the Company advertises its products on its own website and in numerous trade and industry publications. Total advertising, including radio contracts for the years ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 was $69,790 and $311,362, respectively.

Income Taxes
The Company utilizes the liability method of accounting for income taxes.  Under the liability method, deferred income tax assets and liabilities are provided based on the difference between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities measured by the currently enacted tax rates in effect for the years in which these differences are expected to reverse.  Deferred tax expense or benefit is the result of changes in deferred tax assets and liabilities.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments
On January 1, 2008, the Company adopted FASB ASC 820-10-50, “Fair Value Measurements.”  This guidance defines fair value, establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurement and enhances disclosure requirements for fair value measures. The three levels are defined as follows:

 
·
Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

 
·
Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.

 
·
Level 3 inputs to valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair measurement.

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for the cash and cash equivalents, receivables and current liabilities each qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of fair value because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest. The carrying value of related party notes payable approximates fair value because negotiated terms and conditions are consistent with current market rates as of September 30, 2010 and 2009.

Stock-Based Compensation 
In December 2004, FASB issued FASB ASC 718 (Prior authoritative literature:  SFAS No. 123R, “Share-Based Payment”).  FASB ASC 718 establishes standards for the accounting for transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments for goods or services.  It also addresses transactions in which an entity incurs liabilities in exchange for goods or services that are based on the fair value of the entity’s equity instruments or that may be settled by the issuance of those equity instruments.  FASB ASC 718 focuses primarily on accounting for transactions in which an entity obtains employee services in share-based payment transactions.  FASB ASC 718 requires that the compensation cost relating to share-based payment transactions be recognized in the financial statements.  That cost will be measured based on the fair value of the equity or liability instruments issued.

 
19

 

The Company’s accounting policy for equity instruments issued to consultants and vendors in exchange for goods and services follows the provisions of FASB ASC 505-50 (Prior authoritative literature:  EITF 96-18, “Accounting for Equity Instruments That are Issued to Other Than Employees for Acquiring, or in Conjunction with Selling, Goods or Services” and EITF 00-18, “Accounting Recognition for Certain Transactions Involving Equity Instruments Granted to Other Than Employees”).   The measurement date for the fair value of the equity instruments issued is determined at the earlier of (i) the date at which a commitment for performance by the consultant or vendor is reached or (ii) the date at which the consultant or vendor’s performance is complete. In the case of equity instruments issued to consultants, the fair value of the equity instrument is recognized over the term of the consulting agreement.  Stock-based compensation related to non-employees is accounted for based on the fair value of the related stock or options or the fair value of the services, whichever is more readily determinable in accordance with FASB ASC 718.
 
Recently Issued Accounting Standards

In May 2009, FASB issued FASB ASC 855-10 (Prior authoritative literature: SFAS No. 165, "Subsequent Events"). FASB ASC 855-10 establishes principles and requirements for the reporting of events or transactions that occur after the balance sheet date, but before financial statements are issued or are available to be issued. FASB ASC 855-10 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years and interim periods ending after June 15, 2009. As such, the Company adopted these provisions at the beginning of the interim period ended June 30, 2009. Adoption of FASB ASC 855-10 did not have a material effect on our financial statements.

In June 2009, the FASB ASC 860-10 (Prior authoritative literature: issued SFAS No. 166, “Accounting for Transfers of Financial Assets, an Amendment of FASB Statement No. 140”), which eliminates the concept of a qualifying special-purpose entity (“QSPE”), clarifies and amends the de-recognition criteria for a transfer to be accounted for as a sale, amends and clarifies the unit of account eligible for sale accounting and requires that a transferor initially measure at fair value and recognize all assets obtained and liabilities incurred as a result of a transfer of an entire financial asset or group of financial assets accounted for as a sale. This standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2009. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact of this standard on its financial statements, but does not expect it to have a material effect.

In June 2009, the FASB issued FASB ASC 810-10-65 (Prior authoritative literature: SFAS No. 167, “Amendments to FASB Interpretation No. 46(R)”) which amends the consolidation guidance applicable to a variable interest entity (“VIE”). This standard also amends the guidance governing the determination of whether an enterprise is the primary beneficiary of a VIE, and is therefore required to consolidate an entity, by requiring a qualitative analysis rather than a quantitative analysis. Previously, the standard required reconsideration of whether an enterprise was the primary beneficiary of a VIE only when specific events had occurred. This standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2009, and for interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is prohibited. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact of the adoption of this standard on its financial statements, but does not expect it to have a material effect.

In June 2009, FASB issued ASC 105-10 (Prior authoritative literature: SFAS No. 168, "The FASB Accounting Standards Codification TM and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles - a replacement of FASB Statement No. 162").FASB ASC 105-10 establishes the FASB Accounting Standards Codification TM (Codification) as the source of authoritative accounting principles recognized by the FASB to be applied by nongovernmental entities in the preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP. FASB ASC 105-10 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years and interim periods ending after September 15, 2009. As such, the Company is required to adopt these provisions at the beginning of the fiscal year ending September 30, 2009. Adoption of FASB ASC 105-10 did not have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.

In October 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2009-13, Revenue Recognition (Topic 605): Multiple-Deliverable Revenue Arrangements—a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force (“ASU 2009-13”). ASU 2009-13 changes accounting for certain multiple deliverable arrangements. ASU 2009-13 addresses the separation of deliverables and how to measure and allocate the arrangement consideration to one or more units of accounting in multiple deliverable arrangements. Currently, under the residual method of allocation, we use objective and reliable evidence of the fair value of the undelivered elements to separate deliverables in multiple deliverable arrangements. ASU 2009-13 eliminates the residual method and requires that consideration from the arrangement be allocated to all deliverables using the relative selling price method. ASU 2009-13 requires additional disclosures related to multiple deliverable revenue arrangements upon adoption and is effective for fiscal years beginning after June 15, 2010. In addition, ASU 2009-13 may be early adopted. It may be implemented with either prospective or retrospective application; however, if early adoption is chosen, the entity must either adopt at the beginning of its fiscal year, or adopt using retrospective application. We are currently evaluating the impact ASU 2009-13 will have on our financial position and results of operations, whether to early adopt and which implementation method to use upon adoption if not prescribed.

In October 2009, the FASB issued ASU 2009-14, Software (Topic 985): Certain Revenue Arrangements That Include Software Elements—a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force (“ASU 2009-14”). ASU 2009-14 changes the accounting for revenue arrangements that include both tangible products and software elements. Tangible products containing software components and non-software components that function together to deliver the tangible product’s essential functionality is no longer within the scope of the software revenue guidance. Under prior guidance such arrangements were accounted for as software if the software was determined to be more than incidental. ASU 2009-14 requires that any hardware components of such arrangements be excluded from software revenue guidance and that any essential software that is sold with or embedded within the product also be excluded from software revenue guidance. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after June 15, 2010. In addition, ASU 2009-14 may be early adopted. ASU 2009-14 may be implemented with either prospective or retrospective application; however, if early adoption is chosen, the entity must either adopt at the beginning of its fiscal year, or adopt using retrospective application. Further, ASU 2009-14 must be adopted in the same period and with the same implementation method as ASU 2009-13. We are currently evaluating the impact ASU 2009-14 will have on our financial position and results of operations, whether to early adopt and which implementation method to use upon adoption if not prescribed.

In January 2010, the FASB issued ASU No. 2010-06 regarding fair value measurements and disclosures and improvement in the disclosure about fair value measurements. This ASU requires  additional  disclosures regarding significant transfers in and out of Levels 1 and 2 of fair value  measurements,  including a description of  the  reasons  for  the  transfers.  Further, this ASU requires additional disclosures for the activity in Level 3 fair value measurements, requiring presentation of information about purchases, sales, issuances,  and settlements  in the  reconciliation  for  fair  value measurements. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2010, and for interim periods within those fiscal years. The adoption of ASU 2010-06 did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In February 2010, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2010-09 (“ASU 2010-09”) as amendments to certain recognition and disclosure requirements. The amendments remove the requirement for an SEC filer to disclose a date in both issued and revised financial statements. Revised financial statements include financial statements revised as a result of either correction of an error or retrospective application of U.S. GAAP. Those amendments remove potential conflicts with the SEC’s literature. All of the amendments in ASU 2010-09 were effective upon issuance for interim and annual periods. The adoption of ASU 2010-09 did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Forward Looking Statements

The following discussion and analysis provides information which management believes is relevant to an assessment and understanding of our results of operations and financial condition, which are based upon our financial statements. The discussion should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and notes thereto, appearing in this Report.

The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that may affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities, revenues and expenses, and the related disclosure of such contingent assets and liabilities at the date of our financial statements. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions and conditions.

This Report also contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties, which may include statements about our:

·
Business strategy

·
Expansion of our manufacturing capabilities

·
Plans for entering into collaborative agreements

·
Anticipated sources of funds to finance our operations following the date of this Report

·
Plans, objectives, expectations and intentions contained in this prospectus that are not historical fact

The following words and financial projections contain figures related to plans, expectations, future results, performance, events or other matters that are “forward-looking statements”. When used in the Plan of Operations, words such as “estimate”, “project”, “intend”, “expect”, “anticipate”, and other similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements involve numerous risks and uncertainties, including, but not limited to, the science of organics, the development of the Company’s products, markets for those products, timing and level of customer orders, competitive products and pricing, changes in economic conditions and other risks and uncertainties. Actual results, performance and events are likely to differ and may differ materially and adversely. Investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward looking statements which speak only as of the date of the Plan of Operations. The Company undertakes no obligation to release or deliver to investors revisions to these forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of the Plan of Operations, the occurrence of unanticipated events or other matters that may occur.

PLAN OF OPERATIONS

OSM, Inc., is a sales and marketing company that specializes in the sales and marketing of non-food natural and organically certified products.  Primarily cleaners, hand sanitizers and fertilizers, developed through much of its own licensed technology the Company uses a contract manufacturer located in Massachusetts for much of its production.  The Company is continuing to focus its efforts for sales opportunities to Federal government agencies, military branches,  small to mid-sized retail supermarkets, hotel and hospitality facilities, colleges, universities, and laboratories, local and regional government agencies, and lawn and garden centers. In addition, new markets continue to be pursued that include on line retail operations, some of whom carry their own inventory and others who may rely on the Company to fulfill their orders. The Company also will continue to offer its products for private label.  Essentially, OSM, Inc. has become a sales and marketing company of branded certified organic and natural products which markets into many different industries throughout the world.

The Company continues to develop its operating history on which to evaluate its prospects. The risks, expenses and difficulties encountered by an expanding company must be considered when evaluating the Company’s prospects. Management believes that minimum funds sought to be raised during 2010 and 2011 and projected revenues from operations will be sufficient to reach self-sufficiency by late 2011 or early 2012. Expansion of the business into 2011 and beyond will require additional investment through private placement offers or the ability of the Company to secure funding elsewhere. There can be no guarantee, however, that the Company will be able to raise either the minimum capital it needs to sustain its 2011 operations or the larger amount of capital it will need to expand and grow the business well into 2011 and beyond. Failure to do so would likely have an adverse effect on the Company’s ability to continue its operations.  Most recently, the Company has been loaned money by its President & CEO, Sam Jeffries.

The Company believes it is equipped with the necessary products to go to market and has developed strategic alliances with several distributors in various industries, however given the existing economic climate, and lack of sales to date, operating expenses cannot be predicted with any real degree of certainty. They will depend on several factors, including, but not limited to, marketing expenses, continued acceptance of the Company’s products, competition for such products and the current economic environment.  In order to preserve cash, the Company Officers have elected to not be compensated with cash and in lieu thereof, will receive compensation in the form of stock, stock options, and or warrants for any unpaid time.

Management has no firm basis for projecting the increase in revenue required to sustain operations, as anticipated above. Such assumptions are based almost entirely on the strategic relationships the Company has forged which it believes will ultimately translate into operating revenues. It is important to stress, however, that these assumptions are not at all based on firm commitments from customers or on other tangible evidence.

The Company recently entered into an Agreement with Land O’Lakes Purina Feed LLC (LOLPF) to act as its preferred sales agent to promote sales to and solicit and process orders of Products from organic fertilizer customers on behalf of LOLPF in the United States and Canada.  Presently, it is not an exclusive relationship.

The Company anticipates its sales will continue to grow with the addition of W.W. Grainger as one of its leading distributors in the many sales sectors aforementioned.  Since agreement finalization earlier in 2010, the Company continues to be proactive in sales tool offerings to its employees.  The Company will have some of its 11 total horticultural items (fertilizers, insect and animal repellants), on display and showcased in the ‘Sustainability booth’ at the upcoming Grainger trade show in late February early March.  The plan is to further educate Grainger employees and customers of the new products and product category. Moreover, the Grainger Sourcing division will continue selling OSM cleaners & hand sanitizers.  In addition, OSM products will become available on the GSA contract schedule through Grainger.  The OSM/Bradfield Organics fertilizers offered by Grainger will be manufactured by LOLPF and distributed by Grainger.  As this relationship continues to grow and mature, the Company anticipates sales growth and a much larger joint opportunity and positive outlook going forward given the positioning, timing, and USDA BioPreferred designation of these products.

The Garden Guys radio show is still looking to have a key GSA Administrator on the radio show to discuss GSA’s “green initiatives” and how they relate to sales with the US Government through GSA and its partners.  The Garden Guys radio show recently interviewed a senior scientist from the United States Department of Energy.

The Company continues to work closely with the USDA (United Stated Department of Agriculture) BioPreferred group by adding its products as new categories are approved for USDA BioPreferred designation (www.biopreferred.gov ).  The Company anticipates that as new categories are added by BioPreferred, any of the Company’s applicable items will be later added.  In addition, should the Company attain additional funding, it will look to have applicable products become certified by a third party certification group.  It currently has a relationship with Green Seal.

The Company continues to work towards growing its business as a registered vendor/supplier for the Department of Defense, as part of the DOD EMALL.  The Company is in discussions with an independent sales agent to the DOD and its affiliates. There have not been any orders received to date.

The Company is currently in discussions with a major world wide distributor of fire safety equipment and apparatus about some of its products.  These may be sold under the Company’s own OSM brand or a private label.  The discussions are still in the developmental stages.

The Company recently entered into a Supplier Service Agreement with IntraMalls LLC of Hunt Valley, MD.  The Company will act as a supplier in the NIH IntraMall e-commerce platforms offered to various government or commercial buyers.  To date, there have not been any orders received.

The Company currently has in excess of 100 SKU’s in its product line offering.  Should other opportunities present themselves whereby the Company can capitalize on immediate sales growth then the Company will carefully evaluate such opportunities provided it has the necessary funds to do so.

In the current market, consumers have become more discretionary in their disposable income since the economic downturn. They have embraced "trading down" as well as searching for better bargains online. This is especially true of the Millennial generation's 70-80 million members (21-33 year olds) who are willing to experiment and are bargain savvy, using electronic media to find the best deals.  Since the Company started offering its e-mail newsletter, with weekly coupons, on-line sales have increased by 54 %.  The Company anticipates its on-line sales will continue to grow as its products become more mainstream.

 
24

 

The Company continues to develop relationships where there is an increasing demand for consistent performance and safe environmental acceptability of eco-products.  Should the present “green movement” continue, the Company may be well positioned capitalize in these sales.  Together, and in conjunction with its recent USDA BioPreferred status, the Company believes that it could provide simple, safe solutions for the replacement of harmful chemicals increasingly being found in the various work places encountered daily by such entities as W.W. Grainger, Fisher Scientific and others.

The Company continues to maintain an e-commerce internet presence hosting five different sites, www.garden-guys.com , www.mothernaturescuisine.com , www.osm-inc.com , www.naturalnevrdull.com , and www.dragonflyorganix.com .

Since its participation in the USDA BioPreferred program, this distinction continues to open doors for the Company into those distributors who sell the national government through GSA (General Services Administration), or state and local contracts and other contracts where there may be an increased interest for USDA BioPreferred approved products.  When or should additional resources become available, the Company anticipates it will apply for its own GSA number.  Until then, it will continue to rely upon distributors and or brokers with whom it has relations.

The Company’s average monthly sales for the  quarter ending 9/30/2010 increased by 5.8% over the average monthly sales for the same quarter of the prior fiscal year and profit margins for the current fiscal year are have steadily increased vs. the prior fiscal year. This is due in part to driving down such costs as operational & freight costs, slotting fees, radio expenditures, and salary cutbacks. The Company chose to maintain its largest network station while eliminating all of its other stations, thereby eliminating cost and redundancy.  In addition, the Company cut back the amount paid out to its weekly radio talent.  The Company continually looks for opportunities to cut costs that don’t impact customer service or product quality.

 In 2011, the Company projects a loss.  If, however, the Company is unsuccessful in raising additional capital by the end of spring of 2011, the probability of hitting its short term financial goals will be seriously impacted.

The Company will continue to use the radio as the primary source for marketing and creating brand awareness of its non-food, and natural product offerings.  The Company’s commercials are currently being aired weekly on a Boston based FM talk station. Sam Jeffries, the Company’s President, continues to host a live, weekly three hour Sunday morning garden talk radio show which is currently heard on Greater Media radio 96.9 FM WTKK and also available on the internet via streaming or Podcasts through one of the Company’s websites, www.garden-guys.com .  He shares the responsibility with two other hosts of his choosing and therefore works on a rotating schedule.  Using this allows it to keep listeners informed about the importance of considering natural, organic, chemical-free alternatives, how they should use these products and where they can buy them. This also forges relationships with key people in various scopes of business, politics and the general public.  Since the Company pays for the air time, it also receives an inventory of commercials which are used as a follow up during the work week to educate consumers about its organic and natural products, hand sanitizers, etc. and where they can purchase these products. This also creates a medium for the Company to offset some of its radio and related expenses by selling the air time to potential sponsors and or advertisers of the radio show.  The Company has yet to sell all of the inventory allotted or enough to cover the current costs of the radio.  Owned by Greater Media, WTKK 96.9 FM is the base station.  Based in Boston, MA, it is part to one of the largest markets in the country.

As previously noted, the Company has strategic relationships established with key sales representative and distributor organizations in the markets that it services and has developed very strong relationships with several vendors for the fulfillment of its organic liquid and granular fertilizer product lines. The Company plans to vigorously pursue all strategic relationships that enhance its ability to deliver quality non-food, all natural products at reasonable prices.

The Company’s projected Plan of Operations for 2011 consist of the following: (000’s omitted)

   
Year 2011
 
Revenues
  $ 4,140  
Margin
    1,209  
Selling, General and Administrative Expense
    1,198  
Net Profit from Operations
  $ 11  

The Company continues to rely on invested capital and short-term debt. It also continues to seek additional financing of $2,500,000 to maintain operations in 2011. Additional investor funds will still be needed to continue to expand in 2011 and beyond. On the other hand, if the Company is unable to raise the minimum financing needed in 2011, it would likely exhaust its resources.

1. 
Revenue Projections

Despite its heavy financial commitment to continually advertise and promote its products to enhance brand awareness, foster customer loyalty and encourage reorders, there can be no guarantee that the products will sell as the Company believes they will, or that the consumer will reorder the products once they have used them.

Given the most recent an unprecedented economic market, the Company did not reach and fell well short of its 2010 projections.  Although the Company has been able to strategically align itself with a multitude of distributors in various retail, wholesale and commercial sectors, it did not anticipate the length of time go to market.  The 2011 projections have been made on a product category basis with 82% of projected revenues coming from a combination national distributors in the Federal government, military, laboratory, commercial and industrial sectors, grocery, farm & fleet, private label, hotel & hospitality, and the remaining from a combination of website and radio ad sales:

Retail Sales
    11 %
Commercial Sales
    63 %
Private Label Sales
    19 %
Other
    7 %

In preparing these projections customers were identified as those currently being shipped, those to whom are about to start shipping and those who have indicated a desire to carry the products at some point during 2011.  Based upon these assumptions, estimates of how much product would be sold each month and how much the projected dollar revenue would represent on a monthly, quarterly and annual basis.

2. 
Expense Projections

Costs of sales were projected based upon the amount of product being sold using the extensive by product costs we had developed for each of our products. As volume increases it is expected that costs will go down as a function of better quantity purchases. Our projections do not, however, take all of these cost reductions into consideration.

General and Administrative costs were projected at 17.5% of revenues, in line with our corporate objective of keeping G&A expenses level as sales increase.

 
26

 

Selling expenses were projected at 11.4% of revenues. If revenues are higher than projected, more of the additional revenues will be reinvested in further marketing and selling activities. If revenues come in lower than projected, analysis will be done to determine why and, if appropriate, marketing and selling expenses will be reduced or redirected. These expenses include, but are not limited to, radio show costs, display cases, trade shows, commissions, samples, payroll and advertising.

The Company believes that it has developed a careful, well-thought out business plan based upon educated assumptions using the most current data available. There is, of course, no guarantee as to how much or how often existing or new customers will buy.  The Company also believes that its business plan contains enough flexibility to weather unforeseen delays in the generation of revenues by being able to modify expenses and other spending, as required, assuming minimum financing is obtained by the spring of 2011.

There can be no assurance that the Company’s actual operations will reflect the above projections. Market conditions, competition, supplier delays, the ability to raise capital and all other risks associated with the operation of a business could adversely impact the Company’s ability to reach the above projections.

The Company anticipates that in order to fulfill its plan of operations, it will need to attract additional key markets to sell its natural cleaning and gardening products, and continue to leverage its other business relationships. The Company continues to receive orders and re-orders from the various outlets in which it is positioned.  In addition, the recent emphasis on Executive Order #13514 may create additional sales opportunities for the Company’s products through existing distributor, broker and on-line relationships.

To fulfill orders in a timely fashion, the Company must have the capability of producing and delivering its cleaning and gardening products in sufficient volume and quantity to achieve its projections.  The Company will rely on LOL/Purina Feed to fulfill its fertilizer requirements.  In addition, it will continue to outsource its fulfillment of liquid products to Webco Chemical Co., located in Dudley, Massachusetts and possibly others. It believes that these contract manufacturers have the capacity and ability to handle any and all requirements that the Company may have and more, over the next five years.  As a backup, the Company also has made arrangements with JNJ Industries, located in Franklin, MA.  The Company has also made arrangements with LOL/Purina and RitePak of St. Joe, MO to fulfill its distribution needs for potential orders that will require different sizes and quantity of dry fertilizer products.

In addition to the minimum financing needed by spring of 2011, the Company will need to continue to seek financing from outside sources to expand the business further into 2011 and beyond.  In order to provide this necessary additional financing, the Company intends to offer private placement opportunities to investors in an as yet undetermined amount.  The Company has no basis, however, for predicting the success of such other offerings.

ITEM 7A.    QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

¨
Risks Related To Our Business and Operations

¨
Economic or industry-wide factors relevant to the Company:

Should consumer interest in "organic" or "natural" products diminish or discontinue; should there be a natural disaster that adversely impacts garden center product sales such as extreme weather conditions throughout the United States; should there be a shortage of suppliers in the enzyme technology that is used in some of our products or should there be a slower than anticipated roll-out of products to customers due to such external factors, the Company's ability to realize a profit and yield a positive cash flow from operations as quickly as we anticipate could be adversely impacted.
 
¨
Material opportunities, challenges:
 
Should our suppliers not be able to deliver in the quantities the Company needs at any given time in order to fulfill orders; should our contract manufacturer not be able to deliver finished goods in a timely manner or suffer any type of physical plant disaster, labor strike or shortage, it would adversely impact the Company's' business. Difficult challenges may be incurred as more competitors, who are more heavily financed than we are, enter into the market and create pricing issues which could adversely impact the Company's operations.

¨
Risks in short and long term and the actions we are taking to address them:
 
Undercapitalization could impose growth restraints on the Company preventing us from entering other markets and regions, as planned. The Company will continue to actively pursue private placement investor funding as allowed by SEC regulations and to satisfy debt and payables with stock, stock options and/or warrants as a means of capitalizing the Company until operations are sufficient enough to be self-sustaining, which could happen by the end of 2011. There can be no assurance, however, that these activities will be successful.
 
If Sam Jeffries were unable to host and produce the weekly talk show, this could have an adverse impact on the show's educational and promotional programming which is considered an essential part of our advertising and marketing plan. The present co-hosts, Jim Zoppo and Layanee DeMerchant, could produce and conduct the show in Sam Jeffries absence. In addition, Jim Zoppo, is a well respected, well known horticulturist and radio talk show host in his own right.
 
Although unlikely, interest in organics could diminish which would have an adverse effect on the popularity of the radio show. To mitigate this possibility, "home remedy", "how to" and "natural and organic health-care alternative” segments are being added to the shows programming to expand listener interest and extend the seasonality of the show. The Company also has plans to ultimately reach a national audience by franchising the Garden Guys concept throughout the country by having local talk shows discuss organics and lawn and gardening techniques and problems indigenous to each of those regions.

 
28

 

¨
Reliance on Investment Funds

Although the Company has increased its cash flow from customer sales, we expect that for the short term future, we will still rely on external funding sources, primarily equity capital, to finance our operations. While we believe that increasing cash flow from customer sales will ultimately provide adequate funds to permit us to become self-sufficient, possibly by the end of 2011, until then we will continue to require additional capital from investors. If we were unable to obtain such funding from outside sources, we would likely be forced to reduce the level of our operations and business failure could become a real possibility.

¨
Reliance on Management Team

As stated above, the Company relies heavily upon a small team of full-time officers and consultants. It has "key man" life insurance on the CEO, Samuel Jeffries that would compensate us in the event of his demise. Sam Jeffries continued involvement is deemed especially critical to our marketing efforts. The loss of Sam Jeffries or one of several key officers or consultants could have an adverse impact on the Company's chances for success. At present, "key man" insurance coverage is not being pursued on the other full-time officers due to cost.

o
Risks Related to Ownership of Our Stock

 
¨
Trading Market

Our stock officially began trading on Monday, May 5, 2008 on the Over The Counter Electronic Bulletin Board under the trading symbol; OGSM. Even with our shares being traded publicly, there is a substantial "overhang" of outstanding shares that would be eligible for sale under Rule 144. Such sales, if they were to occur, could tend to suppress the market value of our shares for some time.

 
¨
No Dividends in Foreseeable Future

Our board of directors determines whether to pay cash dividends on our issued and outstanding shares. Such determination will depend upon our future earnings, our capital requirements, our financial condition and other relevant factors. At present, our board is not intending to declare any dividends in the foreseeable future. Earnings, once achieved, are expected to be retained to help finance the growth of our business and for general corporate purposes.

 
¨
Provisions of our Certificate of Incorporation, By-laws and Delaware Law

Provisions of our Certificate of Incorporation, By-laws and Delaware law may make it more difficult for someone to acquire control of us or for our stockholders to remove existing management, and might discourage a third party from offering to acquire us, even if a change in control or in management would be beneficial to our stockholders. For example, our Certificate of Incorporation allows us to issue different series of shares of common stock without any vote or further action by our stockholders and our Board of Directors has the authority to fix and determine the relative rights and preferences of such series of common stock. As a result, our Board of Directors could authorize the issuance of a series of common stock that would grant to holders the preferred right to our assets upon liquidation, the right to receive dividend payments before dividends are distributed to the holders of other common stock and the right to the redemption of the shares, together with a premium, prior to the redemption of other series of our common stock.

FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTARY DATA

For the Financial Statements required by Item 8 see the Financial Statements included at the end of this Form 10-K.

ITEM 9.
CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENT WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURES.

The Company changed audit firms for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2010 to Morrill  & Associates.  There have been no changes in or disagreements with accountants with respect to accounting and/or financial disclosure.

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), that are designed to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required financial disclosures.  Because of inherent limitations, our disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, and not absolute, assurance that the objectives of such disclosure controls and procedures are met.

As of the end of the period covered by this Report we conducted an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(b) and 15d-15(b).  Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were ineffective as of September 30, 2010.

There were no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that occurred during our year ended September 30, 2010, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting. As such, because the Company maintains a small office staff it maintains that the internal controls are ineffective.

The Executive Committee consists of our independent directors. Its principal functions are to advise and make recommendations to our Board of Directors regarding matters relating to the compensation of officers and senior management.

The Audit Committee consists of Stephen B. Jeffries, Jerry Adelstein and Laurie Basch-Levy. The Board of Directors has determined that all three members are independent directors as (1) defined in Rule 10A-3(b)(i)(ii) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act") and (ii) under Section 121 B(2)(a) of the AMEX Company Guide (although our securities are not listed on the American Stock Exchange or any other national exchange). Stephen B. Jeffries serves as the financial expert as defined in Securities and Exchange Commission rules relating to the Audit Committee.
 
We believe Messrs. Adelstein and Jeffries and Ms. Basch-Levy to be independent of management and free of any relationship that would interfere with their exercise of independent judgment as members of this committee. The principal functions of the Audit Committee are to (i) assist the Board in fulfilling its oversight responsibility relating to the annual independent audit of our consolidated financial statements, the engagement of the independent registered public accounting firm and the evaluation of the independent registered public accounting firm's qualifications, independence and performance (ii) review the reports or statements as may be required by the securities laws, (iii) assist the Board in fulfilling its oversight responsibility relating to the integrity of our financial statements and financial reporting process and our system of internal accounting and financial controls, (iv) discuss the financial statements and reports with management, including any significant adjustments, management judgments and estimates, new accounting policies and disagreements with management, and (v) review disclosures by independent accountants concerning relationships with us and the performance of our independent accountants.
 
F.
Meetings of the Board and Committees.

Our Board of Directors is responsible for the management and direction of our company and for establishing broad corporate policies. A primary responsibility of the Board is to provide effective governance over our affairs for the benefit of our stockholders. In all actions taken by the Board, the Directors are expected to exercise their business judgment in what they reasonably believe to be the best interests of our company. In discharging that obligation, Directors may rely on the honest and integrity of our senior executives and our outside advisors and auditors.

The Board of Directors and the Audit Committee of the board meet periodically throughout the year to receive and discuss operating and financial reports presented by our executive officers as reports by experts and other advisors.
 
The Board held meetings during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2010 in person and telephonically and acted by unanimous written consent on one occasion. In fiscal 2010, the Audit Committee met telephonically on May 6, 2010.

G.
Compliance with Section 16(a) of The Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

To our knowledge, during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2010, based solely on a review of such materials as are required by the Securities and Exchange Commission, no officer, director or beneficial holder of more than ten percent of our issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock failed to timely file with the Securities and Exchange Commission any form or report required to be so filed pursuant to Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
 
To The Audit Committee
Organic Sales and Marketing, Inc.
Raynham, Massachusetts 02767

We have audited the accompanying balance sheet of Organic Sales and Marketing, Inc.  as of September  30,  2010,  and  the related statements of operations, stockholders' deficit, and cash flows for the year then ended.  These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management.  Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement.  The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting.  Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation.  We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Organic Sales and Marketing, Inc. as of September 30, 2010, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  As discussed in Note 14 to the financial statements, the Company has incurred recurring substantial losses from operations, recurring negative working capital, negative cash flows from operations, and has limited sales of its products which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.  Management's plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 14. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

Significant accounting policies are defined as those that are reflective of significant judgments and uncertainties, and potentially result in materially different results under different assumptions and conditions and are incorporated in these financial statements. We believe that our significant accounting policies are limited to those described below.

Principles of Accounting
The Company employs the accrual method of accounting for both financial statements and tax purposes. Using the accrual method, revenues and related assets are recognized when earned, and expenses and the related obligations are recognized when incurred. The Company has elected a September 30th year end.

Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Revenue Recognition
We earn our revenues from the distribution of garden and cleaning products to retailers and directly to consumers via our internet site and from advertising contracts. Four basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred or services rendered; (3) the fee is fixed and determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured.

Revenue from garden and cleaning products is recognized upon shipment of the product. The distribution of products is governed by purchase orders or direct sale agreements which fix the price and delivery date.  In accordance with ASC 605-45 “Accounting for Shipping and Handling Fees and Costs,” distribution costs charged to customers are recognized as revenue when the related product is shipped. Advance payments are recorded on the balance sheet as deferred revenue until the revenue recognition criteria is met.

Revenue from radio advertising is derived from three sources, the sale of commercial spots on the Garden Guys radio talk shows, the sponsorship of informative show segments and hosting live remote broadcasts. Revenue from radio advertising is recognized after the commercial has been aired and/or a remote broadcast has taken place. Customers will prepay for radio spots or remote broadcasts at the time they contract with the Company to air their commercials or host a remote broadcast. The Company will carry this prepayment as a liability, until such time as economic performance takes place. Money received is refundable prior to the airing of commercials or the airing of the remote broadcast, adjusted by any production or other direct costs incurred up to that point in time.

Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less at the time of purchase to be cash equivalents. During the past twelve months the Company maintained cash in bank accounts which, at times, exceeded Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation insured limits. The Company has not experienced, nor does it anticipate, any losses on these accounts and believes their risk to be minimal.

Accounts Receivable
The Company carries its accounts receivable at cost less an allowance for doubtful accounts. Periodically, the Company evaluates its accounts receivable and establishes an allowance for doubtful accounts, based on a history of past write-offs and collections and current credit conditions. The Company feels that the entire balance of Accounts Receivable as of September 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009 are collectable and, therefore, no allowance has been taken. The full value of accounts receivable is held as collateral for the Company’s Line of Credit.

Inventory
The inventory is stated at the lower of cost (first-in-first-out method) or market. Inventory items consist of raw material and finished goods. Raw materials consist of labels, bottles, sprayers, fertilizers and shipping materials. Finished goods consist of fertilizer bags and bottles of organic cleaning products ready for shipment. The inventory consists of newly purchased items; therefore, there is currently no allowance for excess or obsolete inventory. The full value of inventory is held as collateral for the Company’s Line of Credit.

Prepaid Expenses
Business expenses, including consulting expenses, that are paid for in advance of services being rendered are treated as prepaid expenses. On occasion, the Company pays for prepaid expenses with common stock. When these transactions occur, they are identified as negative components of stockholders’ equity.

Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Continued)

Fixed Assets
Fixed assets are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. The Company has elected to capitalize and depreciate any fixed asset item costing in excess of $1,000.  Expenditures for minor replacements, maintenance and repairs which do not increase the useful lives of the property and equipment are charged to operations as incurred. Major additions and improvements are capitalized. Depreciation and amortization are computed using the straight-line method over estimated useful lives of three to seven years. The full value of fixed assets is held as collateral for the Company's Line of Credit.

Advertising
The Company follows the policy of charging the costs of advertising to expense as incurred. Advertising expense primarily consists of the Company’s three hour weekly Garden Guys radio call in program with Greater Media and Citadel Communications, slotting fee expense, display case costs, samples and trade show participation. The total advertising expense for the radio show contracts was $54,200 and $209,615 for the twelve months ended September 30, 2010 and September 30, 2009, respectively. In addition, the Company advertises its products on its own website and in numerous trade and industry publications. Total advertising, including radio contracts for the years ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 was $69,790 and $311,362, respectively.

Income Taxes
The Company utilizes the liability method of accounting for income taxes.  Under the liability method, deferred income tax assets and liabilities are provided based on the difference between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities measured by the currently enacted tax rates in effect for the years in which these differences are expected to reverse.  Deferred tax expense or benefit is the result of changes in deferred tax assets and liabilities.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments
On January 1, 2008, the Company adopted FASB ASC 820-10-50, “Fair Value Measurements.”  This guidance defines fair value, establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurement and enhances disclosure requirements for fair value measures. The three levels are defined as follows:

 
·
Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

 
·
Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.

 
·
Level 3 inputs to valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair measurement.

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for the cash and cash equivalents, receivables and current liabilities each qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of fair value because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest. The carrying value of related party notes payable approximates fair value because negotiated terms and conditions are consistent with current market rates as of September 30, 2010 and 2009.

Stock-Based Compensation 
In December 2004, FASB issued FASB ASC 718 (Prior authoritative literature:  SFAS No. 123R, “Share-Based Payment”).  FASB ASC 718 establishes standards for the accounting for transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments for goods or services.  It also addresses transactions in which an entity incurs liabilities in exchange for goods or services that are based on the fair value of the entity’s equity instruments or that may be settled by the issuance of those equity instruments.  FASB ASC 718 focuses primarily on accounting for transactions in which an entity obtains employee services in share-based payment transactions.  FASB ASC 718 requires that the compensation cost relating to share-based payment transactions be recognized in the financial statements.  That cost will be measured based on the fair value of the equity or liability instruments issued.

The Company’s accounting policy for equity instruments issued to consultants and vendors in exchange for goods and services follows the provisions of FASB ASC 505-50 (Prior authoritative literature:  EITF 96-18, “Accounting for Equity Instruments That are Issued to Other Than Employees for Acquiring, or in Conjunction with Selling, Goods or Services” and EITF 00-18, “Accounting Recognition for Certain Transactions Involving Equity Instruments Granted to Other Than Employees”).   The measurement date for the fair value of the equity instruments issued is determined at the earlier of (i) the date at which a commitment for performance by the consultant or vendor is reached or (ii) the date at which the consultant or vendor’s performance is complete. In the case of equity instruments issued to consultants, the fair value of the equity instrument is recognized over the term of the consulting agreement.  Stock-based compensation related to non-employees is accounted for based on the fair value of the related stock or options or the fair value of the services, whichever is more readily determinable in accordance with FASB ASC 718.
 
Recently Issued Accounting Standards
In May 2009, FASB issued FASB ASC 855-10 (Prior authoritative literature: SFAS No. 165, "Subsequent Events"). FASB ASC 855-10 establishes principles and requirements for the reporting of events or transactions that occur after the balance sheet date, but before financial statements are issued or are available to be issued. FASB ASC 855-10 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years and interim periods ending after June 15, 2009. As such, the Company adopted these provisions at the beginning of the interim period ended June 30, 2009. Adoption of FASB ASC 855-10 did not have a material effect on our financial statements.

In June 2009, the FASB ASC 860-10 (Prior authoritative literature: issued SFAS No. 166, “Accounting for Transfers of Financial Assets, an Amendment of FASB Statement No. 140”), which eliminates the concept of a qualifying special-purpose entity (“QSPE”), clarifies and amends the de-recognition criteria for a transfer to be accounted for as a sale, amends and clarifies the unit of account eligible for sale accounting and requires that a transferor initially measure at fair value and recognize all assets obtained and liabilities incurred as a result of a transfer of an entire financial asset or group of financial assets accounted for as a sale. This standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2009. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact of this standard on its financial statements, but does not expect it to have a material effect.

In June 2009, the FASB issued FASB ASC 810-10-65 (Prior authoritative literature: SFAS No. 167, “Amendments to FASB Interpretation No. 46(R)”) which amends the consolidation guidance applicable to a variable interest entity (“VIE”). This standard also amends the guidance governing the determination of whether an enterprise is the primary beneficiary of a VIE, and is therefore required to consolidate an entity, by requiring a qualitative analysis rather than a quantitative analysis. Previously, the standard required reconsideration of whether an enterprise was the primary beneficiary of a VIE only when specific events had occurred. This standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2009, and for interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is prohibited. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact of the adoption of this standard on its financial statements, but does not expect it to have a material effect.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards (Continued)

In June 2009, FASB issued ASC 105-10 (Prior authoritative literature: SFAS No. 168, "The FASB Accounting Standards Codification TM and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles - a replacement of FASB Statement No. 162").FASB ASC 105-10 establishes the FASB Accounting Standards Codification TM (Codification) as the source of authoritative accounting principles recognized by the FASB to be applied by nongovernmental entities in the preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP. FASB ASC 105-10 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years and interim periods ending after September 15, 2009. As such, the Company is required to adopt these provisions at the beginning of the fiscal year ending September 30, 2009. Adoption of FASB ASC 105-10 did not have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.

In October 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2009-13, Revenue Recognition (Topic 605): Multiple-Deliverable Revenue Arrangements—a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force (“ASU 2009-13”). ASU 2009-13 changes accounting for certain multiple deliverable arrangements. ASU 2009-13 addresses the separation of deliverables and how to measure and allocate the arrangement consideration to one or more units of accounting in multiple deliverable arrangements. Currently, under the residual method of allocation, we use objective and reliable evidence of the fair value of the undelivered elements to separate deliverables in multiple deliverable arrangements. ASU 2009-13 eliminates the residual method and requires that consideration from the arrangement be allocated to all deliverables using the relative selling price method. ASU 2009-13 requires additional disclosures related to multiple deliverable revenue arrangements upon adoption and is effective for fiscal years beginning after June 15, 2010. In addition, ASU 2009-13 may be early adopted. It may be implemented with either prospective or retrospective application; however, if early adoption is chosen, the entity must either adopt at the beginning of its fiscal year, or adopt using retrospective application. We are currently evaluating the impact ASU 2009-13 will have on our financial position and results of operations, whether to early adopt and which implementation method to use upon adoption if not prescribed.

In October 2009, the FASB issued ASU 2009-14, Software (Topic 985): Certain Revenue Arrangements That Include Software Elements—a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force (“ASU 2009-14”). ASU 2009-14 changes the accounting for revenue arrangements that include both tangible products and software elements. Tangible products containing software components and non-software components that function together to deliver the tangible product’s essential functionality is no longer within the scope of the software revenue guidance. Under prior guidance such arrangements were accounted for as software if the software was determined to be more than incidental. ASU 2009-14 requires that any hardware components of such arrangements be excluded from software revenue guidance and that any essential software that is sold with or embedded within the product also be excluded from software revenue guidance. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after June 15, 2010. In addition, ASU 2009-14 may be early adopted. ASU 2009-14 may be implemented with either prospective or retrospective application; however, if early adoption is chosen, the entity must either adopt at the beginning of its fiscal year, or adopt using retrospective application. Further, ASU 2009-14 must be adopted in the same period and with the same implementation method as ASU 2009-13. We are currently evaluating the impact ASU 2009-14 will have on our financial position and results of operations, whether to early adopt and which implementation method to use upon adoption if not prescribed.

Recently Issued Accounting Standards (Continued)

In January 2010, the FASB issued ASU No. 2010-06 regarding fair value measurements and disclosures and improvement in the disclosure about fair value measurements. This ASU  requires additional  disclosures regarding significant transfers in and out of Levels 1 and 2 of fair value measurements,  including a description of  the  reasons  for  the  transfers.  Further, this ASU requires additional disclosures for the activity in Level 3 fair value measurements, requiring presentation of information about purchases, sales, issuances,  and settlements  in the  reconciliation  for  fair  value measurements. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2010, and for interim periods within those fiscal years. The adoption of ASU 2010-06 did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

In February 2010, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2010-09 (“ASU 2010-09”) as amendments to certain recognition and disclosure requirements. The amendments remove the requirement for an SEC filer to disclose a date in both issued and revised financial statements. Revised financial statements include financial statements revised as a result of either correction of an error or retrospective application of U.S. GAAP. Those amendments remove potential conflicts with the SEC’s literature. All of the amendments in ASU 2010-09 were effective upon issuance for interim and annual periods. The adoption of ASU 2010-09 did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Note 3 – Net Income/(Loss) per Share

Basic net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding.  Diluted net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding and dilutive potential common shares, which includes the dilutive effect of stock options and warrants granted. Dilutive potential common shares for all periods presented are computed utilizing the treasury stock method. Common stock options of 2,355,145 were considered, but not included in the computation of loss per share because their effect is anti-dilutive. Common stock warrants of 2,920,920 were considered, but not included in the computation of loss per share because their effect is also anti-dilutive.

Note 4 – Income Taxes

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has issued FASB ASC 740-10 (Prior authoritative literature: Financial Interpretation No. 48, "Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes - An Interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109 (FIN 48)).  FASB ASC 740-10 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise's financial statements in accordance with prior literature FASB Statement No. 109, Accounting for Income Taxes.  This standard requires a company to determine whether it is more likely than not that a tax position will be sustained will be sustained upon examination based upon the technical merits of the position. If the more-likely-than- not threshold is met, a company must measure the tax position to determine the amount to recognize in the financial statements.  As a result of the implementation of this standard, the Company performed a review of its material tax positions in accordance with recognition and measurement standards established by FASB ASC 740-10.  

Deferred taxes are provided on a liability method whereby deferred tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences.  Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax basis.  Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

The Company has adopted FASB ASC 740-10 to account for income taxes. The Company currently has no issues creating timing differences that would mandate deferred tax expense. Net operating losses would create possible tax assets in future years. Due to the uncertainty of the utilization of net operating loss carry forwards, an evaluation allowance has been made to the extent of any tax benefit that net operating losses may generate.  A provision for income taxes has not been made due to net operating loss carry-forwards of $4,556,645 and $4,189,293 as of September 30, 20010 and September 30, 2009, respectively, which may be offset against future taxable income through 2029.

Note 7 – Stock Options

On February 28, 2008, our Board of Directors approved the 2008 Stock Option and Purchase Plan. Under the terms of this plan, options may be granted to officers, directors, employees, consultants and independent contractors to purchase up to an aggregate of 1,350,000 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $1.00 per share. Options are exercisable and vest over a four year period at a rate of 25% per year.

On January 21, 2010, the Board of Directors approved the granting of 1,155,000 common stock option shares to officers, directors, employees and independent contractors. Under the terms of the grants approved, shares carry an exercise price of $.15 per share, vest over a four year period at a rate of 25% per year and only vested options can be exercised over a ten year period.

On May 6, 2010, the Board of Directors approved the granting of 60,000 common stock option shares to employees and independent contractors. Under the terms of the grants approved, shares carry an exercise price of $.15 per share, vesting 100% in one year and only vested options can be exercised over a four year period.

As of September 30, 2010, under this plan, there were 1,140,145 options outstanding at the exercise price of $1.00 per share and 1,215,000 options outstanding at the exercise price of $.15 per share. The issuance of these options was approved by holders of the majority of the Company’s outstanding common stock. The total amount of option expense recorded for the Twelve Months ended September 30, 2010 was $326,408, of which, $193,431 was recorded as payroll and compensation expense and $132,977 was recorded as legal and accounting expense. The amount of option expense to be charged over the remainder of the exercise period is $380,014.

The Company has determined the estimated value of the stock options granted by using the Black-Scholes pricing model with the following assumptions: expected life of 4 or 10 years, a risk free interest rate of 2.46-3.71%, a dividend yield of 0% and volatility ranging from 75% in 2008, 154% to 192% in 2009 and 190% in 2010.
