On July 21, 1998, Westsphere Asset Corporation, Inc., a Colorado corporation, was incorporated under the laws of the State of Colorado, under the name of Newslink Networks TDS, Inc. On April 23, 1999, the Corporation changed its name to “Westsphere Asset Corporation, Inc.”  Westsphere Asset Corporation is referred to herein as “Westsphere”, “the Corporation” “we” and “our”.

Since 2000, the Corporation has focused its business development on the “non-conventional financial services industry” and has sought opportunities available to it through acquisitions of equity positions within operating corporations or the establishment of wholly owned subsidiary companies that could assist in the asset growth of the Corporation.

“Non-Conventional Financial Services Business” is described as business related activities which would be normally associated in Canada with a registered chartered bank or bank affiliated financial institution but is privately owned and operated and not affiliated with a Canadian Chartered Bank.

Westsphere has no ongoing business operations other than acting as a holding corporation.

On April 2, 2010, the Corporation changed its name to “E-Debit Global Corporation.”  E-Debit Global Corporation is referred to herein as “E-Debit”, “the Corporation” “we” and “our”.

General Description and Development of Subsidiary Corporation Business
 
Vencash Capital Corporation - Vencash Financial Corporation
 
Vencash Capital Corporation (“Vencash Capital”) was incorporated in the province of Alberta, Canada on October 2, 1996.  In July 1998, Vencash Capital Corporation entered into the “non-conventional banking industry” otherwise known in the industry as the “white label” Automated Teller Machine (“ATM”) marketplace. Vencash Capital became the seventh (7th) Canadian “channel” authorized to participate within the Canadian INTERAC system.
 
The “white label” ATM marketplace as used herein means the privately owned and operated ATMs that dispense cash for a fee, which are unaffiliated by ownership or operation to Canadian Registered Chartered Banks.  A “channel” as used herein means a provider of audit control which channels the fee revenues generated through customer usage of the ATM equipment to settlement accounts of contracted site holders and equipment suppliers.
 
Vencash Capital maintains offices at 2140 Pegasus Way N.E., Calgary, AB T2E 8M5. Vencash Capital has sites located nationally across Canada and as of December 31, 2008, holds under management Eight Hundred and Eight (808) automated teller machines (“ATMs”) sites in Canada, most notably in the Provinces of British Columbia and Alberta, Saskatchewan, Ontario and Maritimes.  A “site” is described as used herein means a location where an ATM has been placed, and has contracted with Vencash Capital to provide monitoring, reporting and distribution of financial surcharge transaction revenues.
 
On January 7, 2009 the Board of Directors after reviewing the Corporations business operations at the Annual General Meeting of the Shareholders on December 6, 2008 approved the consolidation of Vencash’s processing and business operations with the assignment of ATM related processing agreements and ATM assets under a purchase and sale agreement to be offset against receivables and payables to the Corporation’s wholly owned subsidiary Westsphere Systems Inc.
 
While the business operations of Vencash Capital were wound down during the consolidation and integration of the ATM operations on May 1, 2009, into Westsphere Systems Inc., Vencash Capital’s corporate entity was maintained in order to secure and protect the “Vencash” brand name.  This includes the maintenance of Vencash Capital’s wholly owned subsidiary, Vencash Financial Corporation ("Vencash Financial"), as a federal corporation under the laws of Canada, in order to secure and protect the "Vencash" name in all Provincial jurisdictions in Canada.  Vencash Financial conducts no actual business activities.

E-Debit International Inc.
 
On August 1, 2000, we acquired a five percent (5%) interest in E-Debit International Inc., an Alberta registered corporation (“E-Debit International”), for $1,350 cash ($2,000 CDN) from a non-affiliated third party, Julio Rivera.

In connection with the purchase, we also acquired an option to purchase the balance of Mr. Rivera’s remaining sixty-five percent (65%) ownership in E-Debit International.
 
On March 13, 2001, we acquired an additional twenty-five percent (25%) interest in E-Debit International for $9,737 ($15,100 CDN) from another non-affiliated third party, Dev Studios Inc.
 
On May 15, 2001, we executed a share exchange agreement with Julio Rivera to exchange a total of 200,000 shares of our common stock at $0.50 per share for a sixty percent (60%) interest in E-Debit International.
 
On June 1, 2004, we executed a share exchange agreement with a non-affiliated third party E-Debit shareholder, Mr. Prathavan Venkatraman, to exchange a total of 33,333 shares of our common stock at $0.04 per share for a ten percent (10%) interest in E-Debit International. As a result of this share exchange, E-Debit was a wholly owned subsidiary of the Corporation.
 
On January 7, 2009 the Board of Directors after reviewing the Corporations business operations at the Annual General Meeting of the Shareholders on December 6, 2008 approved the sale and transfer of the 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of E-Debit International to the Corporation’s wholly owned subsidiary Westsphere Systems Inc.

TRAC POS Processing Inc.
 
TRAC POS Processing Inc. (“TRAC”) was an Alberta registered corporation with its principal offices located in Calgary, Alberta.  TRAC is a distributor and financial processor of POS terminals.  We owned a one percent (1%) interest in TRAC upon its incorporation on May 16, 2000.

On January 5, 2001, we purchased an additional four percent (4%) interest in TRAC for $3.00 USD ($4.00 CDN) from a non-affiliated third party, Mr. Joseph Bowser, who, with his family, is a majority shareholder of TRAC.

In 2002, we acquired an additional forty-one percent (41%) interest of TRAC through various share exchange agreements and share  purchase agreements and as a result issued a total of 857,152 shares of our common stock and paid $143,294 ($225,000 CDN). In 2002, we also sold a five percent (5%) interest of TRAC to MBR Venture Corporation (“MBR Venture”) for $48,133 ($75,000 CDN).  MBR Venture is a corporation owned solely by Bernd Reuscher, one of our directors.

On July 2, 2004, we entered into two (2) separate share exchange agreements with two (2) of TRAC shareholders, 3 Ocean Investment Corporation and MBR Venture, to exchange a total of 4,687,500 shares of our common stock at $0.04 per share for a twenty-five percent (25%) interest in TRAC.

On January 26, 2007, we executed a share exchange agreement with unaffiliated TRAC shareholders to exchange a total of 24,142 shares of our common stock at $1.62 CDN per share for a nineteen percent (19%) interest in TRAC. Concurrently, we entered into share exchange agreements with affiliated TRAC shareholders, Jack Thomson and Brett Border, to exchange a total of 6,916 shares of our common stock at $1.62 CDN per share for a twelve percent (7%) interest in TRAC.  Mr. Thomson is a member of our Board of Directors and Mr. Border is the President of Vencash Capital and TRAC. This share exchange resulted in increasing our holdings in TRAC to eighty-two percent (82%).

On May 4, 2009 TRAC was served with a Notice of Intention to Enforce a Security Form 86 (Rule 124) a precursor to placing TRAC into receivership.  This Notice was served on behalf of the Trustees of the estate of June Barr, the holder of a TRAC loan agreement secured by a General Security Agreement registered under the Alberta Personal Property Protection Act.

Westsphere initiated a similar action to secure its loan to TRAC which also was secured by a General Security Agreement registered under the Alberta Personal Property Protection Act.   TRAC subsequently turned over the business operations, books and records to the appointed receiver in bankruptcy after the termination of TRAC business operations on May 5, 2009.
 
TRAC business related to the sale and processing of Point of Sale Equipment which ran at a continual loss historically will have no impact on Westsphere’s continuing operations and the Corporation as secured creditor did not receive any distribution from the sale of TRAC’s assets under the receivership sale.
 
Cash Direct Financial Services Inc.
 
On July 17, 2003, Cash Direct Financial Services Inc. (“Cash Direct”) was incorporated under the laws of the Province of Alberta.  Cash Direct was incorporated to develop a “bricks and mortar” expansion to our business of “non-conventional banking” operations branded “Personal Financial $olutions”. (See "General Description and Development of Business" below.).
 
Westsphere Capital Group Ltd.
 
Westsphere Capital Group Inc. (“Westsphere Capital”) was incorporated under the laws of the Province of Alberta on January 4, 2005 to supply operational, financial, and administrative support to the Westsphere group of companies.  Westsphere Capital was registered extra provincially in British Columbia on October 11, 2006 to facilitate the assignment of the lease for premises located at Suite 1420, Harbour Centre, 555 West Hastings Street, Vancouver B.C. As of August 2007, we no longer continue to lease the premises in Vancouver.
 
Our Business
 
Our principal place of business and executive offices are located at #12, 3620 – 29th Street N.E., Calgary, Alberta, Canada T1Y 5Z8.  We provide operational and administrative support as well as financial services and related packages to our subsidiaries through our wholly-owned subsidiary Westsphere Capital, and currently conduct our business operations through our wholly-owned subsidiaries. (See "General Description and Development of Business" below.).

a.  
Business of Westsphere Systems Inc.

On January 7, 2009 the Board of Directors after reviewing the Corporations business operations at the Annual General Meeting of the Shareholders on December 6, 2008 approved the sale and transfer of the 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of E-Debit International to the Corporation’s wholly owned subsidiary Westsphere Systems Inc. also at this time the Board approved the consolidation of its wholly owned subsidiary Vencash Capital Corporation’s business operations with the assignment of ATM related processing agreements and ATM assets under a purchase and sale agreement to be offset against receivables and payables to Westsphere System made effective on May 1, 2009.

Westsphere Systems currently provides transaction processing to the majority of our ATM estate through its participation within the Canadian INTERAC Association.  Westsphere System received approval in March 2007 by INTERAC Association, as an acquirer in the Association’s SCD Service and as an acquirer in the Association’s IDP Service. This allowed Westsphere Systems to become an indirect connector, thereby resulting in it owning and managing a switch. Westsphere Systems has been working with ACI on Demand in the switch development.   During the month of November 2008 the Corporation commenced the transfer of its previously contracted switch to Westsphere Systems.

ATM Business in Canada
 
Background of the ATM Business
 
In the latter part of 1997, the Canadian Banking and Financial sectors of Canadian industry commenced a government deregulation program in which under deregulation of the Canada Bank Act, allowed for the release of certain segments of proprietary control involving banking institutions. One of the preliminary results of the deregulation was the allowance of the private operation of ATMs not associated with Canadian Banking financial institutions. This private ownership and operation of ATM equipment has been described within the industry as the "white label ATM" market.
 
Canadian Banking Institutions have been participating in the development of new technology, particularly in regard to online computer banking. Advances originating from the introduction of credit card and debit card services evolved into the installation of commercial POS management systems across the country and the development of the Canadian INTERAC system which provided complete online banking services and 24-hour customer banking between the various existing banking institutions. It also provided for full-bank service availability from remote site locations throughout Canada.
 
Evolving online financial technology being pursued by the institutional banking financial sectors has been confronted by growth of computer-based commerce. The Internet and the expansion of computer generated online commerce shifted a significant amount of consumer financial services from conventional banking and financial institutions to non-traditional and new and innovative virtual-based methods of conducting financial transactions. This on-line or INTERAC connecting of the conventional banking institutions was a significant factor for profits produced by Canadian conventional banking and financial institutions during the last five (5) years.
 
In late 1997, "non-conventional banking" participation and private ownership of ATMs was authorized through the deregulation process within the Canada Bank Act that allowed for private participation within the Canadian INTERAC system. The implications of private ownership and participation within this technologically based commerce have been significant.
 
Many Canadian companies pursued participation in the field of marketing, distribution, selling, and leasing cash dispensing equipment recognized in the market place as ATMs, "ABMs" (automated banking machines), "white label machines" (a privately owned and operated cash dispensing machine).
 
A "switch" as used herein means a computer system that receives requests for financial transactions from ATM terminals, POS or electronic transfer terminals in retail businesses which routes transaction requests to and from ATM devices and financial institutions for final transaction processing and/or authorization. In Canada, the Canadian INTERAC network coordinates this activity. Under recent deregulation, non-financial institutions that are members of INTERAC are allowed to be indirect connectors. These non-financial institutions provide switching services for shared cash dispensing, data processing, and other associated services in connection with the network. Pursuant to the rules and regulations set out by INTERAC and current switch technology, a switch can process up to ten thousand (10,000) transactions at any given time.
 
The Corporation’s ATM business
 
In late 1997, "non-conventional banking" participation and private ownership of ATMs was authorized allowing for participation within the "Canadian INTERAC system". The "Canadian Interac Association" as used herein is a national organization linking enterprises that have proprietary networks to enable them to communicate with each other for purposes of exchanging electronic financial transactions. Five (5) Canadian Banking and Financial Institutions founded the association in 1984. As of March 2011, there were fifty-three (53) member organizations. INTERAC is the organization responsible for the development of a national network of shared electronic financial services: INTERAC Shared Cash Dispensing Service (“SCD”) at ATMs and INTERAC Direct Payment Services (“IDP”), Canada's national debit service. IDP is Canada's national debit card service, available at more than 630,000 IDP terminals and 600,000+ ATMs across the country.
 
As a result of a review and investigation of opportunities developing from the 1997 government deregulation of the Canadian Banking and Financial sectors which allowed for the private operation of ATMs not associated with Canadian Banking financial institutions, the Corporation entered the "white label" ATM marketplace through its subsidiary Vencash Capital Corporation (“Vencash”). Vencash became the 7th Canadian Channel authorized to participate within the "white label" ATM business in Canada.
 
Currently the Corporation through its subsidiary holdings is a  fully integrated ATM provider, and offer a complete suite of ATM management services from ATM deployment and maintenance to transaction processing, reporting and settlement. Since inception, our ATM business has grown both organically 700 ATMs in operation as at March 8, 2011.  At present, we operate a national branded network of non-financial institution ATMs throughout Canada.  We earn revenue from the following sources: (i) transaction fees which include Interchange Fees and surcharge revenue; (ii) processing fees and maintenance fees; and (iii) margin on the sale of ATMs. We typically sign exclusive five-year agreements (which contain renewal provisions) with our customers for their ATM transaction processing and maintenance and management services.
 

 5
 
 

 
Our focus to growing our ATM estate has historically been organic, utilizing in house sales as well as established distributor relationships.  In the past the distributor relationship has been the keystone to our national ATM presence.  Recently we have taken over the operation and management of our ATM estates corporately, particularly in the Maritime Provinces and southern Ontario.  On a go forward basis we will continue to utilize our in house sales force to drive Canadian organic growth but have put into place the foundation of re-establishing our national distributor network which is focusing on new ATM sales and placements as well as attracting customers that already have ATM’s and are looking for a new suppliers and/or processors.

On January 7, 2009 the Corporation consolidated Vencash’s sales and distribution business operation with its processing and switching business into the Corporation’s wholly owned subsidiary Westsphere Systems Inc. (“Westsphere Systems”). Westsphere Systems is one of four nation-wide companies conducting fully integrated “end-to-end” distributor/processor operation within the private ATM market in Canada.  The "switch" supplies the financial information to the "channel" in relationship to the processing of all surcharge fees that are associated with the customer use of the ATM.

Previously Vencash Capital acted as a "channel" which contracted its financial electronic transfer responsibilities with two (2) non owned "switches" (Data West Solutions and Calypso Canada Ltd.).  In November 2008 the Corporation commenced the transfer of its previously contracted switch to Westsphere Systems and with the roll out of our ATM estate onto Westsphere Systems processing switch reliance on outsourced switching is being reduced to near elimination.
 
Current Stage of Corporate Development
 
Historically, Vencash Capital provided a majority of the cash flow which fuelled its and our other expansion.  With the maturity of this aspect of the business, acceptance of the white label ATM placement has become routine, and market saturation has in the recent past being experienced.  Our management believes that ATM business operations will continue to generate positive revenues and returns.  With the move to chip enabled card products both debit and credit the non-conventional bank “white label” ATM business has changed.  With these changes comes the requirement for ATM equipment upgrading or exchange which holds significant opportunity in the marketplace if there is a significant sales presence “on the street”.    The Corporation plans to focus on the re-establishment of our historic distribution network to allow for the growth of the ATM business operations and to expand our Switch Direct ATM business model.
 
Growth Strategy and Market Niche
 
Westsphere Systems Inc. is an integrated ATM provider offering a complete suite of ATM management services ranging from ATM deployment, maintenance reporting and settlement and transaction processing.   Vencash Capital has focused on organic growth over the past three (3) years and its management's plan is to continue to grow within the ATM market place into the future as follows:
 
 
i
We will continue to review our nationwide ATM estate to evaluate the viability of reorganizing those business operations in order to maximize our current revenues and reduce our costs of administration, which might include the sale of those ATM estates to our distribution network or other third parties.
 
 
ii.
We will re-establish our nationwide distribution network, which allowed for our presence in the marketplace in the past and allow us to capitalize on the opportunities afforded with the change over to chip based transaction processing.
 
The Corporation has developed and implemented its Switching capabilities and membership within the INTERAC association and our national access to all regions within Canada through the INTERAC System, holds significant potential.  Combined with consolidation of its various business operations and elimination of administrative and operation costs we have solid “go forward” vertically integrated business operation.

Our Strengths
 
We are a fully integrated full service national ATM operator focusing on providing retailers with reliable, low cost ATMs with contractual relationships which provide us with recurring transactional and fixed revenue streams with a large number of geographically diverse customers including small, medium and large retail enterprises in a variety of market segments. We enter into contracts with all our customers which typically have an initial term of five years and first right of refusal to contract extensions.

With a business model based on a motivated group of distributors and corporate service personnel we have maintained long-term contractual relationships with our sites and customer base.  We will continue to utilize selective placement and monitoring of ATMs, to obtain maximum value for placement and a higher percentage return per terminal. Service and information dissemination will continue to be a priority for the management team.  We have a large customer base and a large geographical area in which to market our products.
 
With a recent substantial investment in technological infrastructure which has provided us with (i) equal or an enhanced economic advantage over the majority of our ATM competitors who must totally rely on third parties to provide them with various services including transaction processing through our access to Interac; (ii) the ability to provide additional products and services which our smaller regional competitors are not able to offer such as real time and customized reporting; (iii) control of the core technologies of our business; (iv) the ability to upgrade our products by adding new functionality and services not easily replicated by our competitors; and (v) the ability to grow organically without significant incremental technical capital.
 
Risk Assessment
 
The private "white label" ATM business is highly competitive. We face competition from large numbers of companies engaged in the selling and servicing of ATM products in all areas in which we may attempt to operate. Competition includes some of the major financial institutions in Canada who have greater financial and human resources and greater name recognition.  If existing or new competitors gain market share our business and operating results could be adversely affected. Our future and existing competitors could also introduce products with superior features and functionality at lower prices than the Fund's products, and could potentially bundle existing or new products with other more established products in order to compete with us. The introduction of new technologies, and any potential limitations or changes to our network or changes to security requirements could all have a materially adverse impact on our Business. Competitors could also gain market share by acquiring or forming strategic alliances with other competitors. If existing or future competitors seek to gain or retain market share by reducing margin on products sold, we may also be required to reduce our margins or our fee structure or increase amounts payable to third parties, retailers, sales agents and resellers, which may reduce our revenue.

We may be unable to maintain and expand our customer base and may not be able to renew our contracts on the same or similar terms and conditions as that which presently exist. As well, our profitability may be affected by a number of factors including the expiry or termination of existing Placement Contracts or Processing Contracts.

The Corporation depends on a number of counterparties in the conduct of its business operations including; Moneris Solutions Corp., Bank of Montreal, Royal Bank of Canada, ACI Worldwide Inc. and Shaw Communications Inc.  There can be no assurance that any of these counterparties will be able to continue to perform their respective obligations and contracts. An interruption in or the termination of any contract or business arrangement by any counterparty, including, in relation to our membership within Interac, the supply by banks of cash for our ATM cash loads, the use of our own employees to load our Full Placement ATMs, and the Corporation’s inability to make alternative arrangements in a timely manner, or at all, could have a material adverse effect on the our business, financial condition and operating results. In addition, we periodically negotiate renewal terms for these contracts and business arrangements and there can be no assurance that such renewal terms will remain financially acceptable.  Any interruption in the Corporations relationship with certain of these counterparties could materially adversely affect our ability to process ATM transactions. If the Corporation were to lose its access to Interac membership, this would immediately result in a material adverse effect to our business. There can be no assurance the Corporation would be able to find alternate supplies or sources of distribution in a timely manner.

The profitability of the Business will be in part dependent upon the continuation of a favourable regulatory regime with respect to the continuing operations and the future growth and development of independent ATM operators. Should the regulatory regime in an applicable jurisdiction be modified in a manner which adversely affects independent operators, including increases in taxes or increased regulatory burdens (including burdens imposed by Interac, Cirrus, Maestro, Visa and Plus), Revenues may be adversely affected. The failure to obtain all necessary licenses or permits, including renewals thereof or modifications thereto, may adversely affect the Corporations historic cash flows.

Interac, MasterCard or VISA have mandated hardware and software security upgrade for ATMs, Debit Terminals and our Switch, and with the accompanying change of the rules and regulations around approved devices, members or security, our revenues may continue to be adversely impacted.  The Corporation’s operations are subject to a variety of federal, provincial laws and regulations, including Interac, Cirrus, Maestro, Visa, Plus and Canadian Payment Association rules and regulations. The Corporation and the companies with whom it contracts to provide services are required to invest financial and human resources to comply with such laws and the Corporation anticipates that it will continue to do so in the future. Although such expenditures historically have not been material to us, such laws or regulations are subject to change and accordingly, it is impossible to predict the cost or impact of such laws or regulations on its future operations. Although, to our knowledge, such fees are not anticipated to change, any change that Interac makes to its Interchange Fees, its fee structure or Acquirer fees could have an adverse impact on our revenues. As well, current revenues would be adversely impacted if Interac decided to eliminate surcharging.

If a fraud occurs in the Interac network or in the Corporation’s network, this could result in an adverse impact on the Corporation and its revenues as a result of the implementation of more stringent regulations or the loss of consumer confidence, each of which may result in the transaction volumes at our ATMs declining and our revenues being adversely impacted.

The Corporations revenues have historically been dependent on ATM transaction volumes.  In the event that these transaction volumes decrease with the proliferation of additional ATMs in the market, the Corporation’s revenues will be negatively impacted.  Actual expenses may exceed the Corporation’s projected amounts and/or actual revenues may be less than the Corporation currently projects, in which case the Corporation may need to raise additional funds from lenders and equity markets in the future. In addition, the Corporation may choose to raise additional financing in order to capitalize on perceived opportunities in the marketplace that may accelerate the Corporation’s growth objectives. The Corporation’s abilities to arrange such financing in the future will depend in part on the prevailing capital market conditions as well as the Corporation’s business performance. There can be no assurance that the Corporation will be successful in its efforts to arrange additional financing, if needed, on terms satisfactory to the Corporation. If additional equity or debt financing is raised by the issuance of common stock control of the Corporation may change and shareholders may experience dilution to their equity interest in the Fund.
 
b.               Business of E-Debit International Inc.
 
E-Debit International Inc. (“E-Debit International”) initial development stages focused on meeting the payment system needs of current and potential online shoppers.  E-Debit's business model was based on an anonymous payment system to protect the identity of the purchaser while allowing for guaranteed payment to the merchant. E-Debit intended to accomplish this system by developing and marketing a secure, anonymous online payment system that could be used by online consumers and merchants.
 
The events of September 11, 2001 caused our management to seriously evaluate the anonymity factor of the E-debit process, particularly because the E-debit process allowed for the anonymous transfer of currency. The anonymity extended to E-Debit as the E-debit account holder's identity would not be available to E-Debit once the account numbers had been changed by the individual account holder, thereby allowing currency transfers without any ability to track or trace the account holder.

On February 11, 2004, we entered into a purchase agreement to acquire an additional ten percent (10%) interest in E-Debit from a non-affiliated third party E-Debit shareholder.  With this purchase, E-Debit became one of our wholly owned subsidiaries.  The function of E-Debit has been expanding in conjunction with the original functionality of the E-debit process.  The business model has been amended in order to incorporate and integrate the E-debit process into the aspects of our ATM, POS and Westsphere Systems Inc. business opeartions.
 
On January 7, 2009 the Board of Directors after reviewing the Corporations business operations at the Annual General Meeting of the Shareholders on December 6, 2008 approved the sale and transfer of the 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of E-Debit International to the Corporation’s wholly owned subsidiary Westsphere Systems Inc.
 
The Corporation entered into an asset purchase agreement on June 21, 2010 with an arms length third party related to certain hardware equipment, and software equipment for the establishment of a proprietary card management system in order to establish the foundation platform to enable E-Debit International to launch its card product entry into the loyalty, prepaid, debit and credit card business space originating in Canada and North America wide.  E-Debit International continues the development of its card product and to date has not been put into commercial production.
 
g.              Business of Cash Direct Financial Services Inc.
 
Cash Direct was formed to expand our “non-conventional banking” operations branded “Personal Financial $olutions”.
 
The first Personal Financial Solutions storefront commenced business operations on November 1, 2004 supplying short-term cash advance loan agreements under the brand name “Cash Direct Advance”, cheque cashing services, corporate registry and filing and other related services.
 
Cash Direct generated revenues from its investment in Personal Financial $olutions and through its first beta site which grew on a monthly basis during the first full year of operations.  It was apparent that the beta test supported the acceptance, convenience, versatility and reliability of the Cash Direct proprietary hardware and related software and although two (2) additional Personal Financial $olutions arms length privately held distributorships – one in Edmonton, Alberta and another in Calgary, Alberta
 
With the start up of the second Calgary Personal Financial $olutions independent business centre on March 15, 2006, the Calgary beta test store was wound down and its client base was transferred to the Calgary, Alberta distributor which continued to operate into 2007.  The Calgary, Alberta based distributor wound down its business operations in mid 2007 while the Edmonton, Alberta based distributor suspended his business operations in order to renovate the building which housed his distributorship.
 
The Corporation had previously viewed the operation of cheque cashing services, corporate registry and filing services was not adding to the financial potential of our core business model as the fee per transaction based business operations of its ATM, POS and card management businesses.  On October 15, 2010, the Corporation sold forty-one (41%) percent of the issued and outstanding shares of Cash Direct subsidiary 1105725 Alberta Ltd operating as Personal Financial Solutions to 1498328 Alberta Ltd. which E-Debit Global officer and Chief Operating Officer is a principal shareholder. The sale resulted in 1498328 Alberta Ltd. controlling ninety (90%) of the issued and outstanding shares of 1105725 Alberta Ltd.   E-Debit Global has the option to repurchase up to 40% of the issued and outstanding shares of 1498328 Alberta Ltd. for $1.00 per share for a period of 36 months.
 
Current Stage of Our Development
 
Our group of companies employs sixteen (16) full-time employees and three (3) contracted consultant groups working in Edmonton, Alberta and Omaha, Nebraska
 
We were incorporated in Colorado on July 21, 1998, and hold wholly owned subsidiaries which conduct business throughout Canada.  We file and prepare our financial information in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”).

ITEM 1A.   RISK FACTORS
 
The following are certain risk factors relating to E-Debit Global Corporation, and the Corporation’s subsidiary business operations.  The following information is a summary only of certain risk factors and is qualified in its entirety by reference to, and must be read in conjunction with, the detailed information appearing elsewhere in this document.

E-Debit Global Corporation is organized to be a holding corporation of the various other entities held as wholly owned subsidiaries and therefore not directly subject to risks of the Business- however, since the Corporation derives its value and cash flow from its subsidiaries, the risks faced by the Corporation’s subsidiaries  are effectively also faced by the  Corporation. The risks and uncertainties described below are not the only risks and uncertainties the Corporation faces.

Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to the Corporation or that the Corporation currently deems immaterial also may impair the Corporation’s business operations. If any of the following risks actually occur, the Corporation's business, results of operations and financial condition could suffer.  In that event the trading price of the Corporation’s Common Shares could decline and holders of the Corporation’s Common Shares could lose all or part of their investment in The Corporation Shares.

An investment in our common stock involves a high degree of risk.  You should carefully consider the following risk factors and the other information in this registration statement before investing in our common stock.  Our business and results of operations could be seriously harmed by any of the following risks.
 
We have substantial indebtedness.

As of December 31, 2010, we had a working capital deficit of $1,223,705 which includes $1,025,204 payable to suppliers and day-to-day operations.  Our ability to meet our debt service requirements will depend upon achieving significant and sustained growth in our expected cash flow.  Our cash flow will be affected by our success in implementing our business strategy, prevailing economic conditions and financial, business and other factors, some of which are beyond our control.  Accordingly, we cannot be certain as to whether or when we will have sufficient resources to meet our debt service obligations. If we are unable to generate sufficient cash flow to service our indebtedness, we will have to sell assets, restructure or refinance our indebtedness or seek additional equity capital. We cannot assure that any of these strategies can be effect on satisfactory terms, if at all, particularly in light of our high levels of indebtedness. In addition, the extent to which we continue to have substantial indebtedness could have significant consequences, including:

·  
our ability to obtain additional financing in the future for working capital, capital expenditures, acquisitions and other general corporate purposes may be materially  limited or impaired,

·  
a substantial portion of our cash flow from operations may need to be dedicated to the payment of general operations and therefore not available to finance our business growth, and our indebtedness,

·  
our high degree of indebtedness may make us more vulnerable to economic downturns, limit our ability to withstand competitive pressures or reduce our flexibility in responding to changing business and economic conditions.

Requirements associated with being a reporting public company will require significant company resources and management attention.

Compliance with reporting and other requirements applicable to public companies such as Sarbanes Oxley will create additional costs for us, will require the time and attention of management and will require the hiring of additional personnel and outside consultants. We cannot predict or estimate the amount of the additional costs we may incur, the timing of such costs or the degree of impact on our management's attention to these matters will have on our business.
       
In addition, being a reporting public company could make it more difficult or more costly for us to obtain certain types of insurance, including directors' and officers' liability insurance, and we may be forced to accept reduced policy limits and coverage or incur substantially higher costs to obtain the same or similar coverage. The impact of these events could also make it more difficult for us to attract and retain qualified persons to serve on our board of directors, our board committees or as executive officers.

Regulatory Regime

The profitability of the Corporation’s subsidiary business operations will be in part dependent upon the continuation of a favorable regulatory regime with respect to the continuing operations and the future growth and development of independent ATM, Debit Terminal and Prepaid Card operators. Should the regulatory regime or the interpretation of the legislation in an applicable jurisdiction be modified in a manner which adversely affects independent operators, including increases in taxes or increased regulatory burdens (including burdens imposed by Interac, Cirrus, Maestro, Canadian Payments Association, VISA and Plus), the Corporation’s profitability may be adversely affected.

The failure to obtain all necessary licences or permits, including renewals thereof or modifications thereto, may adversely affect profitability.  If the Networks, like Interac, VISA, MasterCard, Plus, or Cirrus change their rules to alter the financial terms under which acquirers and issuers operate, such a change could have an adverse effect on the Corporations’ profitability (or a positive effect depending on the direction of the change).

Some examples of the types of financial terms that the Networks have the power to change under their rules include, changing of amounts of interchange that is paid to/by card issuers or transaction acquirers, adjusting the fees paid by card issuers and/or transaction acquirers to the Network, creating new fees or levies charged to card issuers and/or transaction acquirers, changing the rules for allocating the liability for fraudulent transactions and their associated costs, changing the requirements for connecting to the network for transaction processing, eliminating or restricting the use of surcharging, allowing non financial institution members to deploy or process transactions, increasing Network association fees charged to card issuers or transaction acquirers, changing their rules so that different rules/fees apply to financial institutions versus non financial institution terminal deployers or processors, and changing or adding new monetary sanctions for breaches of network rules. If such changes result in increased costs or decreased revenue for the Corporation, the Corporation may or may not be able to recover the difference by altering the terms of the contracts Corporation has with its customers (or the Company may not be able to make the necessary adjustments until the terms of existing contracts reach the end of their current term).

If Interac, MasterCard or VISA mandate a hardware or software security upgrade for ATMs, Debit Terminals or the Corporation’s Switch, or change the rules and regulations around approved devices, members or security, profitability may be adversely impacted.

Security upgrades are required under Interac, MasterCard, and VISA rules. These upgrades include the requirements to have:
 
(a)     
EMV (Europay, MasterCard, VISA) certified chip card (the replacement technology for the historical magnetic stripe cards)software/readers, and
(b)     
network approved encrypted PIN pad ("EPP") devices, installed on all ATMs and debit terminals thereby providing the ability to accept EMV chip card transactions. This has required and will also require further upgrading the Corporation’s Switch to process EMV chip card transactions, and adding additional encryption methods to Corporations managed ATMs and Debit terminals, Triple Des Encryption.
 
The Corporation’s understanding of the deadlines mandated by Interac and MasterCard for conversion of ATMs and debit terminals (i.e. to read the EMV microchip on a card rather than a magnetic stripe) are as follows:
 
(a)     
50% of all ATMs must be upgraded with a EMV certified chip pin entry device by December 31, 2010 and 100% of ATMs must be upgraded by December 31, 2012;
(b)     
35% of debit terminals must be upgraded with a EMV certified chip pin entry device by December 31, 2010, 60% must be converted by December 31, 2012, and 100% must be upgraded by December 31, 2015.

VISA's rule changes do not require a switch to the new technology by any particular date. However, both MasterCard and VISA rules provide that after March 31, 2011, certain liabilities (i.e. in respect of transaction errors or frauds) will be reallocated to industry participants who are still accessing the MasterCard and VISA networks using non-upgraded equipment, cards or software.

In addition to the security upgrades to ATM and Debit Terminals, in order to access Interac, cards (i.e. the debit cards issued by financial institutions) must be upgraded (i.e. reissued) to have EMV chips installed: 65% by December 31 2010 and 100% by December 31, 2012.

The result of non-compliance can include penalties, fines, sanctions and contractual penalties by the applicable Network(s) and ultimately disconnection of the ATM and Debit Terminal device or card from the Network for failure to comply by the end dates.  The Corporation will be investing maintenance capital and upgrading its IT department to meet these upgrade deadlines.  The Corporation’s customers of who own their own equipment are encouraged to make the necessary changes to their equipment and in some cases the Corporation has the contractual right to make the necessary changes for the customer (and charge the customer for the cost of the change).

The Corporations business operations are subject to a variety of federal laws, provincial laws and the rules of various financial networks ("Networks"), including Interac, Cirrus, Maestro, VISA and Plus. Also, the Corporation or the entities with whom the Corporation contracts are subject to the jurisdiction of various government agencies and departments, including the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions ("OSFI"), the Canadian Payments Association (the "CPA"), Canadian Deposit Insurance Corporation ("CDIC"), Financial Transactions and Reports Analysis Centre of Canada ("FINTRAC"), offices of Provincial privacy commissioners as well as various jurisdictional Securities Commissions.

Some of the more common areas where regulatory compliance can become relevant to operation of
the Corporation's business include (a) anti-money laundering ("AML") requirements which includes reporting of suspicious transactions and checking of customer names against various lists of terrorist organizations, (b) know your client ("KYC") requirements (c) fee disclosure requirements ("FDR"),
(d) identification of politically exposed foreign persons ("PEFP") and collection of additional information regarding PEFP transactions. Although the cost of compliance with such requirements historically has not had a material effect financially to the Corporation, such laws or regulations are subject to change and accordingly, it is impossible to predict the cost or impact of such laws or regulations on its future operations.

Each of the Networks, the CPA and other regulators are constantly reviewing, revising and updating their rules and regulations with a view to addressing and regulating new business practices, the needs of the marketplace and generally to meet their public interest mandates. Recently some Canadian provinces have chosen to legislate their own AML requirements (in addition to those already legislated under
federal legislation). If any of the Networks or government agencies that regulate financial institutions change their rules (or their interpretation of the rules) so as to increase the administrative burdens necessary to operate the Corporation’s Prepaid Card program (for example, requiring that each Prepaid Card customer become a customer of the financial institution and provide the necessary information to open and maintain a separate deposit account), such changes/increased costs could negatively impact
our card product business model. If other legislation not directly dealing with financial institutions (for example, the Tax Rebate and Discount Act (Canada) or legislation similar to the legislation introduced to regulate "gift" cards, is passed to restrict or limit the ability to charge fees on Prepaid Cards, this may make the use of Prepaid Cards in such applications uneconomic.
 
The Corporation employs a significant number of employees and contractors that conduct very significant services to the Corporation’s operating systems associated to our Switch Operations.  In the course of their supplying those services and support  if one or more of these individuals in key control positions were to perpetrate a fraud (for example, relating to settlement of transactions, altering account deposit account details, changing customer charging details, fraudulently ordering cash to a non Corporate  owned location, or creating fake accounts), this could have a negative impact on the Corporation's cash flow.  To reduce this risk the Corporation has put into place significant internal controls and monitoring to detect any of these possible activities, and the Corporation requires dual entry for many of the encryption key loading and control processes related to the cash settlement process.

Our prior growth rates may not be indicative of our future growth rates and should not be relied upon.

You should not consider prior growth rates in our revenue to be indicative of our future operating results. The timing and amount of future revenues will depend on our ability to add new ATM/POS terminals to the switch product.  Our future operating results will depend upon many other factors, including:

     - the level of processing transactions and price competition,

     - our success in expanding our business network and managing our growth,

     - our ability to develop and market product enhancements and new products,

     - the ability to hire additional employees, and

     - the timing of such hiring and the ability to control costs.

We do not anticipate paying cash dividends on our capital stock in the foreseeable future.
 
We do not anticipate paying cash dividends in the foreseeable future. We currently intend to retain our future earnings, if any, to fund the growth of our business.
 
Disaster Recovery

The Corporation  has a Disaster Recovery Site in located off-site in Calgary, Alberta, and it may not be possible to effectively transition on a timely basis all of the Corporation’s operations and functions to the off-site facility in the event of disaster or equipment failure. The Corporation maintains an addition manual backup program and UPS (uninterruptible power source or battery backup) on site within the Corporation’s general office and full back up auxiliary power and redundant broad band supply at our off-site Disaster Recovery Site.

Software Viruses and Network Intrusion

The Corporation maintains many different networks and management information systems (some of which are interconnected) and some of which are connected to the internet or to other external networks. The Corporation may be susceptible to viruses and network intrusions by third parties. Furthermore, network intrusions that occur on outside networks (or the internet) that the Corporation connects to can spread to the Corporation. Any intrusion or virus could impact the performance of the transaction processing capabilities of the Corporation’s Switch and management software and in a worst case scenario could require temporary shutdown of the affected systems (and the related services offered by the Corporation), and compromise information about customers, users and employees. Systems that are accessed through the internet are also subject to "denial of service" attacks - these attacks do not involve an intrusion into the system but can effectively make the systems unavailable to the Corporation's customers/employees.

The Corporation maintains significant and complex security policies and procedures to manage these risks, some of which include intrusion detection software, virus monitoring software, IP blocking, IP tracking software, complex encryption for transactions, network monitoring and reporting solutions as well as application and data base level restrictions and controls through network design and implementation.

Uninsured and Underinsured Losses

The insurance coverage currently maintained by the Corporation is in the form of comprehensive property and casualty insurance, including coverage in respect of claims for bodily injury or property damage arising out of assets or operations. In many of Corporation's customer contracts, the customer is required to maintain insurance with the Corporation’s named as a loss payee.  Although efforts are made to carry out verification it is difficult to monitor as to the effectiveness of the maintenance of the insurance coverage and that the necessary insurance is currently in place.  Even in cases where the Corporation’s customers remain contractually obligated to maintain insurance for the Corporation's benefit, it is possible that when a loss occurs the necessary insurance will not be in place or will deny coverage.

The Corporation does carry insurance for cash in transit. As a result, not all risks facing the Corporation are now or will be covered by insurance, and no assurance can be given that insurance will be consistently available or will be consistently available on an economically feasible basis or that the amounts of insurance will at all times be sufficient to cover each and every loss or claim that may occur involving the Corporation’s assets or operations. In particular, damage caused by an accidental or natural disaster to any or all of the Corporation's office/warehouse facilities, including the its contracted Switch operation may have a material adverse affect on the financial well being of the Corporation’s operations.  Dependency on Networks and Other Counterparties for a Number of Contracts and Business Arrangements

The Corporation depends (directly or indirectly) on a number of Networks and counterparties in the conduct of the Corporation's Business, including Interac, MasterCard, VISA, Plus, Cirrus, Moneris Solutions Corp., Bank of Montreal, Royal Bank of Canada,  Shaw Communications Inc., the DPL Group, Trans Armored Canada Ltd., and equipment and software vendors such as ACI Worldwide Inc., Rycom Inc. and ebackup Inc. There can be no assurance that any of these counterparties will be able to continue to perform their respective obligations and contracts or that the Corporation will be allowed to continue its memberships with applicable Networks.  An interruption in or the termination of any contract or business arrangement by any counterparty (including, in relation to the Corporation's access to Networks, the supply by banks of cash for The Corporation's ATM cash loads, the use of the Corporation's own employees to load the Corporation's Full Placement ATMs, and the Corporation's inability to make alternative arrangements in a timely manner, or at all), could have a material adverse effect on The Corporation's Business, financial condition and operating results.
 

 13
 
 

 
In addition, the Corporation periodically negotiates renewal terms for these contracts, business arrangements and memberships and there can be no assurance that such renewal terms will remain acceptable to the Corporation or any such counterparty or Network. An interruption in the Corporation's relationship with certain of these counterparties could materially adversely affect the Corporation's ability to process ATM, Debit Terminal, Prepaid Card transactions.  If The Corporation were to lose the Corporation's access to Interac or MasterCard memberships, this would immediately result in a material adverse effect to The Corporation's Business. The Corporation is also a large user of and the Corporation's communication and processing systems are dependent on hardware and software sourced from ACI Worldwide Inc. and Rycom Inc. There can be no assurance that the Corporation would be able to find alternate supplies or sources of distribution in a timely manner.

We depend upon key personnel, the loss of which could seriously harm our business.

Our performance is substantially dependent on the continued services of our executive officers and key employees.   Our long-term success will depend on our ability to recruit, retain and motivate highly skilled personnel. Competition for such personnel is intense. We have at times experienced difficulties in recruiting qualified personnel, and we may experience difficulties in the future.  The Corporation has historically been dependent on a relatively small number of key officers and employees, the loss of any of whom could have an adverse effect on the Corporation. Due to the technical nature of the Corporation business operations, The Corporation is dependent upon its ability to continue to attract and retain qualified management, marketing, information technology and technical personnel. There is competition for qualified personnel in the Corporation’s business and in related businesses and there can be no assurance that the Corporation will be able to continue to attract and retain qualified personnel necessary for the development of the Corporation's businesses. Douglas Mac Donald continues to act as President and C.E.O. of The Corporation and its principal subsidiaries under a ongoing employment agreement with the Corporation.

Clients, Contracts & Market Saturation

The Corporation may be unable to maintain and expand the Corporation's customer base and may not be able to renew The Corporation's contracts on the same or similar terms and conditions as that which presently exist. The ATM and Debit Terminal Markets may reach saturation and organic growth may be limited to market size. As well, the Corporation's profitability may be affected by a number of factors including the expiry or termination of existing Placement Contracts, Processing Contracts or card management contracts. The Corporation may not be able to enforce the terms of certain of The Corporation's contracts depending on the laws of the applicable jurisdiction.

Competition and Technological Change

The ATM, Debit Terminal and prepaid products businesses are highly competitive. The Corporation's competitors include some of the major financial institutions in Canada who have greater financial and human resources and greater name recognition than the Corporation. As well, if existing or new competitors gain market share, the Corporation's business and operating results could be adversely affected. The Corporation's future and existing competitors could also introduce products with superior features and functionality at lower prices than the Corporation's products, and could potentially bundle existing or new products with other more established products in order to compete with The Corporation.

The introduction of new technologies, and any potential limitations or changes to the Corporation's network or changes to security requirements could all have a materially adverse impact on the Corporation's Business. Competitors could also gain market share by acquiring or forming strategic alliances with other competitors. If existing or future competitors seek to gain or retain market share by reducing margin on products sold, the Corporation may also be required to reduce the Corporation's margins or the Corporation's fee structure or increase amounts payable to third parties, retailers, sales agents and resellers, which may reduce the Corporation's revenue and cash flow.

Transaction Volumes

The Corporation's revenues are largely dependent on (a) transaction volumes at ATMs.  If these transaction volumes decrease with the proliferation of additional ATMs in the market, the Corporation's
revenues and profitability will be negatively impacted.

Requirement for Additional Capital

Actual expenses may exceed the Corporation's projected amounts and/or actual revenues may be less than The Corporation currently anticipates, in which case the Corporation may need to raise additional funds from lenders and equity markets in the future. In addition the Corporation may choose to raise additional financing in order to capitalize on perceived opportunities in the marketplace that may accelerate the Corporation's growth objectives.  The Corporation's (and the Corporation') abilities to arrange such financing in the future will depend in part on the prevailing capital market conditions as well as The Corporation's business performance. There can be no assurance that the Corporation or the Corporation will be successful in efforts to arrange additional financing, if needed, on terms satisfactory to the Corporation and the Corporation . If additional equity or debt financing is raised by the issuance of the Corporation Shares, control of the Corporation may change and holders of The Corporation Shares may experience dilution to their equity interest in the Corporation.
 

 14
 
 

 
Vault Cash

The Corporation maintains cash in many ATMs (i.e. is the owner of the cash and is responsible for replenishing cash in such ATMs). The Corporation funds the Corporation's vault cash requirements in part from private credit facilities. Funding increasing vault cash requirements from historic lines of credit may become limited.  The Corporation's ability to fund such requirements and the Corporation’s inability to arrange an appropriate expansion of such credit facilities, then The Corporation would have to consider funding alternatives for some ATMs which could result in a reduced level of profitability from the affected ATMs.

Credit Risk

The Corporation's ability to collect amounts due or realize the Corporation's security on The Corporation's clients may affect profitability.

Alternative Payments

Alternative payment options could be developed that change individuals' requirements to get cash from ATMs or make purchases with debit cards or credit cards. Some new payment technologies that have emerged in the past few years include pay-pass and touch and go systems and payment systems that utilize features built into cellular phones. To date these alternative technologies have not had a measurable impact. However, these technologies and new technologies developed in the future could become more prevalent and thereby negatively impact the Corporation's Business.

Need to Manage Growth Effectively

If The Corporation fails to manage The Corporation's growth effectively, The Corporation's business and operating results could be adversely affected, which could impact the market price of the Corporation’s Shares to fall. The Corporation expects to continue to grow the operations of the Corporation domestically and internationally, and to hire additional employees. The growth in the Corporation's operations and staff has placed, and will continue to place, a strain on existing management systems and resources. If The Corporation fails to manage the Corporation's future anticipated growth, the Corporation may experience higher operating expenses, and the Corporation may be unable to meet the expectations of shareholders, securities analysts or prospective investors with respect to future operating results.

The Market Price of the Corporation Shares Will Fluctuate

Since being listed for trading on the OTC:BB under the trading symbol on July 21, 2001 Shares of a the Corporation has  not necessarily traded at values determined solely by reference to the underlying value of its assets.  In addition, the market price for the Corporation’s Shares may be affected by changes in general market conditions, fluctuations in the market for equity or debt securities and numerous other factors beyond the control of the Corporation.

Proprietary Information

The Corporation relies on a combination of copyright, trademark and trade secret laws, confidentiality procedures, contractual provisions and other measures to protect its proprietary information. All of these measures afford only limited protection. These measures may be invalidated, circumvented or challenged. Despite the Corporation's best efforts to protect proprietary rights, unauthorized parties may attempt to obtain or use information that the Corporation regards as proprietary.

Interest Rate Fluctuations

The Corporation's debt fluctuates from time to time and the Corporation pays interest on the Corporation's debt on floating and fixed interest rates. Accordingly, any increase in rates may have a negative impact on profitability.

Our management has broad discretion over the use of capital raised.

We plan on raising capital for working capital and to help pay off the outstanding indebtedness and for general corporate purposes. Thus, management will have broad discretion in allocating proceeds of any offering.

On April 7, 2004, the Company sued Fred and Linda Sebastian to recover an outstanding loan of $80,000 (CDN) plus interest and court costs. The Company has reserved this amount due to the uncertainty of recovery. The defendant has withdrawn the counterclaim.  As of March 2008, no further actions were filed by either party.

On May 28, 2004 Peter Gregory filed an action in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice against Vencash Capital Corporation.  Peter Gregory was a Vencash distributor and agent who filed the action related to a claim of wrongful dismissal from Vencash of $260,000 (CDN).  On July 30, 2004 Vencash filed a Statement of Defence and Counterclaim in the amount of $1,600,000 for breach of contract, breach of confidence, breach of fiduciary duties, interference with economic relations, damages for inducing breach of contract, and punitive damages. The Company believes the claim by Gregory to be without merit and has not accrued a liability for the claim.  As of April 2009, the court actions and negotiation with Peter Gregory have been terminated with the withdrawal of the company lawyer.  No further actions were filed by either party.

ITEM 6 - SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA
 
As a smaller reporting Company, the Company is not required to include this Item.
 
ITEM 7.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND CHANGES IN FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
E-Debit and its subsidiaries generated a net loss of $1,152,944 from operations for the twelve month period ending December 31, 2010.  During the period of operations ending December 31, 2009, E-Debit and its subsidiaries generated a net loss of $1,287,741.  The decrease in year 2010’s net loss of $134,797 over the previous year was primarily due to a decrease in the discontinued POS operations of $456,225 and a decrease in travel, delivery and vehicle expenses of $29,226.  The decrease in net loss is partially offset against a decrease in gross profit of $115,682, an increase in legal and accounting fees of $35,314, an increase in salaries and benefits of $57,210, an increase in other expenses of $58,493, an increase in interest expense of $11,264, and a decrease in other income of $78,895 over the same period from the previous year.
 
The decrease in the discontinued POS operations of $456,225 was caused by the written off of E-Debit’s investment in its subsidiary TRAC in the previous year.
 
The decrease in travel, delivery and vehicle expenses of $29,226 was caused by a decrease in number of placement of ATMs in the marketplace and a decrease in vehicle expenses.  The decrease in the number of placements was due to Westsphere’s subsidiary Vencash no longer having the finance/lease program available offered by an ATM supplier to place more ATMs in the market place at a lower cost.  The decrease in vehicle expenses was due to two of the vehicle lease contracts have been expired during the year 2010.
 
The decrease in gross profit was primarily caused by an increase in other cost of sales of $115,675.  The increase in other cost of sales was related to the switch operations.  E-Debit has officially launched its switch in January 2009 and commenced rollover of ATMs to process all transactions through its association with ACI.  As of February 2011, 447 ATM’s were under Westsphere Systems processing.
 
 
18
 
 

 
The increase in legal and accounting fees was primarily due to an increase in audit and filing fees.

The increase in salaries and benefits was primarily due to the addition of 4 positions during the year 2010:  two IT technicians, an in-house programmer, and an accounts manager.

The increase in other expenses was primarily caused by the increase in advertising and promotion expense of $50,696 and an increase in office supplies of $8,190.  The increase in advertising and promotion was primarily due to E-Debit entered into a short term investor relations consulting agreement with a company to provide and render public relations and communications services.

The increase in interest expense was due to the interest paid on overdue invoices to suppliers during the year.

The significant decrease in other income was caused by an overpayment from the finance/lease program to the major ATM supplier during previous year.  This is due to changes within the organization of a major ATM supplier where they mistakenly continued to charge on ATMs that are already paid in full.  There was no further overpayment during year 2010.
 
To this date, 710 ATM are being processed between three switches. There was no change in operations during the year 2010 as compared to prior year.
 
On August 1, 2010, the Company has granted option to three consultants in the total of 650,000 common shares under the 2004 Stock Option and Stock Award Plan.  The option grant triggered the stock-based compensation expense of $9,002 which was determined by using the Black Schole calculation.

On August 15, 2010, the Company has approved the 2010 Option Grant to the Directors of the company, at a duly called Shareholder meeting on March 27, 2010.  The maximum number of shares that may be optioned or awarded under the plan is 4,400,000 at $0.20 per share.  The option grant triggered the stock-based compensation expense of $304,345 which was determined by using the Black Schole calculation.

In September 2010, E-Debit entered into a short term investor relations consulting agreement with a company to provide and render public relations and communications services.  Their services include the development, implementation and maintenance of an ongoing program to increase the investment community’s interest of E-Debit.  The contract cost $63,314 ($62,500 CDN).
 
In October 2010, E-Debit decided to sell 40 common shares (41%) of the issued and outstanding shares held in its wholly owned subsidiary, 1105725 Alberta Ltd. o/a Personal Financial Solutions (PFS) at $1.00 per share.  The common shares were sold to a number company that is controlled by an officer of E-Debit.  The purchaser agrees that the current outstanding advances made to the company by E-Debit will remain outstanding and owed by the Company to E-Debit.  As a result of the sale transaction, E-Debit remains a 10% shareholder in Personal Financial Solutions.  The sale transaction will save administration and audit costs to E-Debit.  E-Debit did not restate its financial statements to deconsolidate the PFS subsidiary, as PFS’s balances are immaterial to E-Debit’s consolidated financial statements.  PFS has had no active business activities for the last four years. PFS had total assets and an accumulated deficit of $497 and $37,826, respectively, at September 30, 2010.
 
In October 2010, pursuant to the authorization of the Company’s shareholders given at the annual shareholders meeting held on March 27, 2010, management filed a notice of corporate action with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) declaring a 5 to 1 forward split of the outstanding common stock effective November 8, 2010 or as soon thereafter as determined by FINRA.
 
On November 15, 2010, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority made the previously announced 5 to 1 forward split of the outstanding common stock effective.  The new symbol for the common stock is WSHED.  After twenty days the “D” will be removed from the symbol.  The additional shares are payable upon surrender to the transfer agent.  A forward split of outstanding preferred stock on a 5 to 1 basis was also effect on November 15, 2010.
 
Total issued and outstanding share capital after 5 to 1 forward split was 89,413,630 common shares and 50 to 1 forward split was 70,855,000 preferred shares as of December 31, 2010.

On December 23, 2010 the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) delivered to the Company a “Cease Trade Order” related to trading of our common stock in the jurisdiction of British Columbia, Canada.   On January 5, 2011 the Company delivered to the British Columbia Securities Commission notice requesting a hearing with the Commission to appeal a Cease Trade Order and a request for a Stay of the Order.  The Company is waiting for notice of the date of the Commission hearing.  The actions originating from the BCSC has no effect on our trading status in any other jurisdiction than British Columbia but it does affect trading activity in Canada.  E-Debit as a company conducting its business activities through our Canadian subsidiaries we take every effort to ensure the integrity and complete compliance of our business activities in each jurisdiction we conduct our businesses.  We will continue to conduct our business in this same manner.
 
In January 2011, a director exercised his options of 1,785,714 common shares at $0.01 per share for a total of $17,857.  The issuance of 1,785,714 shares was issued as the settlement of $17,857 of debt.
 
In January 2011, an officer exercised his options of 1,125,000 common shares at $0.01 per share for a total of $15,750.  The issuance of 1,125,000 shares was issued as the settlement of $15,750 of debt owed to an affiliated company that is controlled by the Company’s president.
 
In February 2011, the boards after reviewing the business of operations as a whole have determined that it is in the best financial interests for the Company to raise additional funds through private offering memorandum for up to 16,500,000 units of Common Stock at $0.06 per share.  Each unit consists of one (1) share of Common Stock at a price per share of $0.06 and one share purchase warrant entitling the subscriber to purchase an additional one (1) share of Common Stock for each two shares of Common Stock initially purchased, exercisable within a period of eighteen (18) months from the date of issuance, entitling the purchaser to purchase an additional share of Common Stock at $0.10 per share.  The Company will have the right to cancel the share purchase warrant within 45 days of the price of the Company’s shares trading on any recognized national securities exchange for ten (10) consecutive trading days at a price of $0.25 or better.  The use of the proceeds from this offering is to be allocated to support the switch operations, purchasing of software and hardware, and general and administrative costs.  The offering had not yet commenced as of March 31, 2011.
 
In February 2011, the Company and its subsidiary, Westsphere Systems Inc., jointly signed the General Security Agreement (GSA) for the current debts owed to related parties and shareholders.  The Company has requested that the related parties and shareholders individually or collectively advance loans up to one million five hundred thousand ($1,500,000) dollars in Canadian Funds to the Company.  The terms of loans are “On Demand” with initial thirty-six months (36) terms which can be renewed from the date initial funds were advanced.  The interest rate is Eight (8%) percent annually calculated and paid quarterly.  Under the GSA, these debts are secured by the Company’s Accounts Receivables, Inventory, Equipment, Intangibles, Leasehold, Real and Immovable Property, and Proceeds.  The current debts owed to related parties and shareholders are reflected in the accompanying consolidated balance sheet as indebtedness to related parties and shareholder loans and totaled $437,353 and $237,014, respectively, at December 31, 2010.

In February, 2011 the Company entered into a Joint Venture agreement with ebackup Inc. through ownership participation in Capital Six Limited.  Capital Six Limited was created to provide a single shared approach to the development of software and support related to the ABM, POS and E-Commerce marketplace. Capital Six brings together the technical and experience in E-Debit’s core business, this added personnel utilization will allow us to gain a faster development and implementation processes.

In March 2011, the Company purchased ten (10%) interest of ebackup Inc. by exchanging 1,750,000 common shares of E-Debit Global Corporation.  The agreement solidifies the Company’s commitment to our “end-to-end” payment delivery and processing solution.  ebackup Inc. supplies PCI compliant data centre, technical support and data protection services.

E-Debit and its subsidiaries currently did not generate sufficient revenues to meet overhead needs.  This is due to E-Debit switch operations which was launched in January 2009 and commence rollover of ATMs to process all transactions.  The switch operations currently did not generate sufficient revenue to cover it expenses.  E-Debit believes that until the rollover of ATMs is completed and addition of transactions by enrolling new independent service organization (ISO), the switch operations will generate sufficient revenues to meet it overhead needs.  This is due to E-Debit will process all transactions through its association with ACI thereby eliminating the costs, restrictions, and potential risks of relying on third party processors.  E-Debit expects the rollover of ATMs to be completed by the second quarter of this year.  As of date, 504 ATM’s or 71% were under Westsphere Systems processing.

In addition, E-Debit continues experiencing a steady decrease in gross profit; specifically in the residual and interchange income.  Management recognizes that the Company must generate additional resources to enable it to continue operations.  Management intends to raise additional funds through debt financing and equity financing or through other means that it deems necessary, with a view to moving forward and sustaining a prolonged growth in its strategy phases.  However, no assurance can be given that the Company will be successful in raising additional capital.

In order to meet its growth plan, E-Debit will continue to be dependent on equity funds raised, joint venture arrangements and/or loan proceeds. E-Debit believes that it will continue as a going concern with the present revenues from its subsidiary Westsphere Systems Inc. and loan advanced by the related parties but it would be unable to meet its market growth projections without further funding outside of the ongoing revenue from operations of Westsphere Systems Inc.
 
As mentioned above, E-Debit believes that its subsidiary Westsphere Systems Inc. will generates sufficient ongoing revenues once the rollover of ATMs is completed and loan advanced by the related parties to ensure that E-Debit is a going concern.

Changes in Financial Position
 
During fiscal year 2010, total assets increased from $1,292,835 to $1,681,150.  The increase is primarily due to an increase in property and equipment, idle of $550,033.
 
The significant increase in property and equipment, idle was mainly caused by the purchase of computer hardware and software for the card management systems in June 2010.  The software and computer hardware was purchased as a turnkey operating system which focused on a loyalty based platform.  As of December 2010, the system is being expanded from its loyalty based platform to cash based platform.  The Company is expecting the expansion of the systems to be completed by the third quarter of 2011.
 
As of December 31, 2010, E-Debit’s current liabilities consisted of bank overdraft of $20,918, accounts payable of $811,844, accrued liabilities of $213,360, loans payable of $166,010, indebtedness to related parties of $437,353, and shareholder loans of $237,014.

In September 2007, Vencash entered into a loan agreement with an initial term of twelve months totaling $100,006 ($100,000 CDN) with an external arms-length investor, bearing interest at 12% per annum, with blended monthly payments of interest only of $1,013 ($1,000 CDN).  The initial term may be automatically extended for further six (6) month terms (a “renewal period”) after the end of the initial term or terminated subject to mutual termination agreements.  The investor must give a written notice not less than 90 days before the end of the initial term or renewal period, whichever the case may be, to not renew the loan agreement.  Vencash must notify the investor not less than 60 days before the end of the initial term or renewal period, its intention to terminate the loan.  Currently, no written notice has been received from the investor to Vencash or vice versa.  The purpose of the loan is to supply vault cash to Vencash’s customer-owned ATM equipment and site locations.  Vencash supplies vault cash to these site locations because its customers do not have sufficient vault cash for these site locations.

The loan amount has been forwarded to an armored car company that supplies vault cash to these site locations.  The armored car company is accountable for the rotation of the cash and has signed a note receivable for the amount.

On October 26, 2010, pursuant to the authorization of the Company’s shareholders given at the annual shareholders meeting held on March 27, 2010, management filed a notice of corporate action with the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority declaring a 5 to 1 forward split of the outstanding common stock effective November 8, 2010 or as soon thereafter as determined by FINRA.
 
On November 15, 2010, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority made the previously announced 5 to 1 forward split of the outstanding common stock effective.  The new symbol for the common stock is WSHED.  After twenty days the “D” will be removed from the symbol.  The additional shares are payable upon surrender to the transfer agent.  A forward split of outstanding preferred stock on a 5 to 1 basis was also effect on November 15, 2010.
 
Total issued and outstanding share capital after 5 to 1 forward split was 89,413,630 common shares and 50 to 1 forward split was 70,855,000 preferred shares as of December 31, 2010.
 
Liquidity
 
E-Debit and its subsidiaries currently did not generate sufficient revenues to meet overhead needs.  This is due to E-Debit switch operations which was launched in January 2009 and commence rollover of ATMs to process all transactions.  The switch operations currently did not generate sufficient revenue to cover it expenses.  The shortages of funds raise substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.
 
Management recognizes that the Company must generate additional resources to enable it to continue operations.  Management intends to raise additional funds through debt financing and equity financing or through other means that it deems necessary, with a view to moving forward and sustaining a prolonged growth in its strategy phases. However, no assurance can be given that the Company will be successful in raising additional capital.  Furthermore, the management is in the process of restructuring, reorganization and consolidation of all its operations as a whole in order to save costs.  In addition, there is no demand for payment on the indebtedness to related parties of $437,353 and shareholder loans of $237,014 as these liabilities are owed to internal officers and directors.   Further, even if the Company raises additional capital, there can be no assurance that the Company will achieve profitability or positive cash flow. If management is unable to raise additional capital and expected significant revenues do not result in positive cash flow, the Company will not be able to meet its obligations and may have to cease operations.
 
In order to meet its growth plan, E-Debit will continue to be dependent on equity funds raised, joint venture arrangements and/or loan proceeds. E-Debit believes that it will continue as a going concern with the present revenues from its subsidiary Westsphere Systems Inc., but it would be unable to meet its market growth projections without further funding outside of the ongoing revenue from operations of Westsphere Systems Inc.
 
E-Debit expects that its need for liquidity will increase in 2011 in anticipation of expending funds to develop its growth and upgrade plan. The need is due to the finance/lease requirements to replace an aged estate of ATM equipment which is under Vencash management and/or ownership. Due to changes within the organization of a major Vencash ATM supplier, equipment and supply agreements along with related transaction processing agreements signed in the latter part of year 2006 are presently in dispute. This has resulted in a requirement to find additional financial recourses related to growth in its ATM business and to determine whether or not Vencash’s current ATM equipment supplier can meet the upgrade requirements as set forth in regards to meet ongoing regulatory compliance.
 
Short Term
 
On a short term basis, E-Debit and its subsidiaries currently did not generate sufficient revenues to meet overhead needs.  This is due to E-Debit switch operations which was launched in January 2009 and commence rollover of ATMs to process all transactions.  The switch operations currently did not generate sufficient revenue to cover it expenses.  In addition, E-Debit’s subsidiary Westsphere Systems Inc. experiencing a steady decrease in gross profit; specifically in the residual and interchange income over the past two years. The Company has incurred net losses for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, and as of December 31, 2010, had a working capital deficit of $1,223,705 and an accumulated deficit of $205,349. These conditions raise substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

Management recognizes that the Company must generate additional resources to enable it to continue operations. Management intends to raise additional funds through debt financing and equity financing or through other means that it deems necessary, with a view to moving forward and sustaining a prolonged growth in its strategy phases. However, no assurance can be given that the Company will be successful in raising additional capital.
 
In February 2011, the boards after reviewing the business of operations as a whole have determined that it is in the best financial interests for the Corporation to raise additional funds through private offering memorandum for up to 16,500,000 units of Common Stock at $0.06 per share.  The use of the proceeds from this offering is to be allocated to support the switch operations, purchasing of software and hardware, and general and administrative costs.  The offering had not yet commenced as of March 31, 2011.
 
Furthermore, there is no demand for payment on the indebtedness to relate parties of $437,353 and shareholders’ loan of $237,014 as these liabilities are owed to internal officers and directors. E-Debit believes that the investment from related parties, outside investors, and private offering memorandum will continue to produce sufficient ongoing funding to meet its current and future financial requirements.
 
In order to meet its growth plan, E-Debit will continue to be dependent on equity funds raised, joint venture arrangements and/or loan proceeds. E-Debit believes that it will continue as a going concern with the present revenues from its subsidiary Westsphere Systems Inc., but it would be unable to meet its market growth projections without further funding outside of the ongoing revenue from operations of Westsphere Systems Inc.
 
Long Term
 
E-Debit, through its subsidiary Westsphere Systems Inc. has successfully gained membership into the Canadian Interac Association as an Acquirer. This will enable the direct processing of ATM, POS and other transactions for its other subsidiaries, Vencash and Westsphere Systems Inc. E-Debit has sourced out an industry leader, ACI Worldwide, and invested in the development and ongoing support required to facilitate the processing of transactions. Westsphere Systems Inc. will process all transactions through its association with ACI thereby eliminating the costs, restrictions, and potential risks of relying on third party processors. Most importantly, the investment in the processor, or switch, will also enable E-Debit’s direct entry into new and emerging markets such as card management and processing. To fund the switch development project, E-Debit will continue to be dependent on equity funds raised, joint venture arrangements and/or loan proceeds.
 
As mentioned above, E-Debit believes that the Corporations subsidiaries upon consolidation combined with continued investment from related parties, outside investors, and private offering memorandum will continue to produce sufficient ongoing funding to meet its current and future financial requirements. The Corporation also will continue its plan to sell some of its business operations to its current distribution network participants and/or non-related parties in order to maximize the financial potential of those assets.
 
Capital Resources
 
The primary capital resources of E-Debit are its consolidated business operations as well as equity funds raised, joint venture arrangements and/or loan proceeds.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
 
 

 
To the Board of Directors and Shareholders:
E-Debit Global Corporation
 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of E-Debit Global Corporation as of December 31, 2010 and 2009, and the related consolidated statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ deficit, and cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009. 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 audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States).  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits 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, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation.  We believe that our audits provide 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 E-Debit Global Corporation as of December 31, 2010 and 2009, and the results of their operations and cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, 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 shown in the financial statements, the Company has suffered recurring losses, has a working capital deficit at December 31, 2010, and has an accumulated deficit of $4,457,079 as of December 31, 2010.  These factors and others discussed in Note 14 raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the Company cannot continue in existence.

E-DEBIT GLOBAL CORPORATION
Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements
For the Years Ended December 31, 2010 and 2009
 
Note 1 – Organization and Principles of Consolidation
 
 
Westsphere Asset Corporation, Inc. (Company) was incorporated in Colorado on July 21, 1998 as Newslink Networks TDS, Inc. and changed its name to Westsphere Asset Corporation Inc. on April 29, 1999. On April 2, 2010, the Company officially changed its name to E-Debit Global Corporation.
 
The Company’s primary business is the sale and operation of cash vending (ATM) and point of sale (POS) machines in Canada.
 
Summary of ATM’s and POS’s sold and related gross profits during the years ended December 31, 2009 and December 31, 2010:
 
    # of sale     Gross Profit  
December 31, 2009
           
             
ATMs      3     $ 662  
POS     -     $ -  
                 
December 31, 2010
               
                 
ATMs                                       
    8     $ 3,067  
POS     -     $ -  
                                   
ATM sales were low mainly due to E-Debit’s subsidiary Vencash Capital Corporation/Westsphere Systems Inc. (VCC/WSI) focusing on the placement and finance/lease program offered by an ATM supplier in year 2006.  This finance/lease program provided VCC/WSI an opportunity to place more ATMs in the marketplace at a lower cost.  However, the finance/lease program offered by the ATM supplier ended in 2008.  After the program ended, E-Debit did not work to facilitate growth opportunities in the ATM and POS business due to the condition of the financial market.

On October 26, 2010, the Company has amended its articles of incorporation to increase its authorized capital to Five Hundred Million (500,000,000) shares of no par value common stock and Seventy Five Million (75,000,000) of no par value preferred stock.
 
Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and are stated in United States dollars.
 
Use of Estimates in the Preparation of Financial Statements
 
The preparation of the Company’s 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 to report amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
 
Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.  Cash equivalents totaled $-0- and $-0- at December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively.
 
F-7
 
 

 
Restricted cash

The Company relies on a contractual agreement with Moneris Solution Corporation to settle daily ATM vault cash dispensements throughout our ATM Network into our bank account.  The ATM vault cash will be settled to the cash owners within 24 hours turn around.

Estimated Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The carrying amounts of current assets and current liabilities approximate fair value because of the short-term maturity of these items. These fair value estimates are subjective in nature and involve uncertainties and matters of significant judgment, and, therefore, cannot be determined with precision.  Changes in assumptions could significantly affect these estimates.  We do not hold or issue financial instruments for trading purposes, nor do we utilize derivative instruments.

The FASB ASC clarifies that fair value is an exit price, representing the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. It also requires disclosure about how fair value is determined for assets and liabilities and establishes a hierarchy for which these assets and liabilities must be grouped, based on significant levels of inputs as follows:

 
Level 1:
Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
 
 
Level 2:
Quoted prices in active markets for similar assets and liabilities and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability.

 
Level 3:
Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.

The determination of where assets and liabilities fall within this hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

The carrying amount of the note receivable approximates fair value. The note carries no interest rate, and requires no monthly payments.

Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable consist of amounts due from customers.  The nature of the receivables consists of equipment sales, parts and accessories, and service provided.  The Company considers accounts more than 180 days old to be past due.  This is so the Company can withhold the transactions revenue owed to the customers should their receivables become past due.  The account is deemed uncollectible and written off when the site locations are out of business and or in receivership.  The Company uses the allowance method for recognizing bad debts. When an account is deemed uncollectible, it is written off against the allowance.
 
     2010      2009  
Accounts Receivable
           
      Equipment   $ -     $ 24,252  
      Services     19,752       36,550  
      Others     22,923       124,678  
      42,675       185,480  
                 
Less: Allowance for doubtful accounts     (902 )     (105,513 )
    $ 41,773     $ 79,967  
 
The bad debt expense for the year ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 totaled $19,251 and $35,289, respectively.  The bad debt is reflected in the accompanying consolidated Statements of Operations as Other operating expenses.
 
Inventory
 
Inventory consists of the following elements:
 
     Quantity     Cost  
ATM     46     $ 40,696  
POS     -       -  
Parts and accessories     1,237       37,840  
Total           $ 78,536  

 
F-8
 
 

 
Inventories are valued at the lesser of cost (on a first-in, first-out method) or net realizable value.

Property, Equipment and Depreciation

Property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation.  Depreciation is calculated using a declining balance method over the estimated useful lives of the property and equipment.
 
Earnings (Loss) per Share

Basic earnings (loss) per share are computed by dividing the net (loss) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009.  Diluted earnings (loss) per common share is calculated by dividing the applicable net earnings (loss) by the sum of the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding and all additional common shares that would have been outstanding if potentially dilutive E Debit Global Corporation common shares had been issued during the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009.

Total outstanding stock options of 17,575,000 and 23,447,750 at December 31, 2010 and December 31, 2009 that would potentially diluted the earnings per share.  However, these stock options are anti-dilutive and were not included in the earnings per share calculation.  As a result, there is no variance between basic and diluted earnings per share at December 31, 2010 and December 31, 2009.
 
Total outstanding convertible preferred shares of 70,855,900 and 70,855,900 at December 31, 2010 and December 31, 2009 that would potentially diluted the earnings per share.  The preferred shareholders have the right to convert such preferred share to a share of common stock (1:1) upon delivery of 21 days written notice to the Company, at a price of $0.05 per share payable to the Company.
 
Valuation of Long-Lived Assets
 
The Company periodically analyzes its long-lived assets for potential impairment, assessing the appropriateness of lives and recoverability of unamortized balances through measurement of undiscounted operation cash flows on a basis consistent with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
Revenue Recognition
 
Product revenues (or service revenues) are recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred (or service has been performed), the sales price is fixed and determinable and collection is reasonably assured.

Revenues from sales, leasing and servicing of individual cash vending machines are recognized when substantially all significant events to be provided by the Company have been performed. Interchange and residual revenues from the operation of vending and point-of-sale machines are recognized when the transaction is processed and due to the company.

The Company rents ATM machines to customers on a month-to-month basis. The carrying value of property rented to customers as of December 31, 2010 is $6,776.  Because all rental agreements are on a month-to-month basis, there are no minimum future rentals.

The Company offers no warranties or right of return beyond manufacturers’ warranties.
 
Foreign Currency
 
The functional currency of the Company and its subsidiaries is the Canadian dollar. The Company translates amounts into United States dollars using the current rate method.  Under this method, assets and liabilities are translated to United States dollars at current exchange rates; revenues and expenses are translated at the average exchange rate during the period, and equity account are translated at the historical rate.  Related translation adjustments are reported as other comprehensive income, a component of stockholders’ equity.
 

 F-9
 
 

 
Concentration of credit risk

The Company depends (directly or indirectly) on Switch equipment and software particularly ACI Worldwide Inc. related to the Company’s Switch and an interruption in or the termination of any contract or business arrangement with ACI Worldwide Inc. could have a material adverse effect on The Company's Business.  Although we maintain switching contract relations with two alternative Switch providers our business would be interrupted until transition and during the period of transition it could trigger financial loss to the Company.

In addition the Company relies on a contractual agreement with Moneris Solution Company to settle daily ATM vault cash dispensements throughout our ATM Network.  If Moneris fails to settle the ATM vault cash it would have a very significant adverse effect on the Company business, financial condition and operating results making the Company liable for payment of the non settled vault cash to our customer base.
 
Income Taxes
 

The Company uses the liability method of accounting for income taxes.  Accordingly, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of assets and their respective tax bases.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled.  The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates resulting from new legislation is recognized in income in the period of enactment.  A valuation allowance is established against deferred tax assets when management concludes more likely than not the deferred asset is recoverable.

Expected future losses represent sufficient negative evidence regarding its recoverability and accordingly, a full valuation allowance was recorded against deferred tax assets. A full valuation allowance on the deferred tax assets will be maintained until sufficient positive evidence exists to support reversal of the valuation allowance.

The Company has analyzed filing positions in all of the federal and state jurisdictions where it is required to file income tax returns, as well as all open tax years in these jurisdictions.  The Company has identified its federal tax return and its state tax return in Colorado as “major” tax jurisdictions, as defined.  We are not currently under examination by the Internal Revenue Service or any other jurisdiction.  The Company believes that its income tax filing positions and deductions will be sustained on audit and does not anticipate any adjustments that will result in a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations, or cash flow.  Therefore, no reserves for uncertain income tax positions have been recorded. 
 
Principles of Consolidation
 
The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and all of its wholly-owned and majority-owned subsidiaries. All inter-company accounts have been eliminated in the consolidation.
 
 
 Subsidiaries Percentage of Ownership
   
Westsphere Systems Inc.   100%
E Debit International Inc.  100%
Vencash Capital Corporation  100%
Vencash POS Services Ltd.  100%
Westsphere Capital Group Ltd.  100%
Cash Direct Financial Services Ltd.   100%
                                                      
Minority interests in the income and equity of consolidated subsidiaries that are less than wholly-owned are recorded except when the subsidiary has a deficit and there are no agreements for the minority shareholders to contribute additional capital. As of December 31, 2010 all minority-owned subsidiaries had deficits and therefore no minority interest is recorded.

Advertising expenses

The Company expenses advertising costs as incurred and the total amounts for 2010 and 2009 were nominal.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
In January 2010, the FASB issued ASU No. 2010-06, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures: Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements. ASU 2010-06 amends ASC 820 to require a number of additional disclosures regarding (1) the different classes of assets and liabilities measured at fair value, (2) the valuation techniques and inputs used, (3) the activity in Level 3 fair value measurements, and (4) the transfers between Levels 1, 2, and 3. The new disclosures and clarifications of existing disclosures are effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2009, except for the disclosures about purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements in the roll forward of activity in Level 3 fair value measurements. Those disclosures are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2010, and for interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company does not expect that the adoption of ASU 2010-06 will have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.
  
In April 2010, the FASB issued Update No. 2010-17, or ASU 2010-17, Revenue Recognition—Milestone Method, which updates the guidance currently included under topic 605, Revenue Recognition. ASU 2010-17 provides guidance on defining the milestone and determining when the use of the milestone method of revenue recognition for research or development transactions is appropriate. It provides criteria for evaluating if the milestone is substantive and clarifies that a vendor can recognize consideration that is contingent upon achievement of a milestone as revenue in the period in which the milestone is achieved, if the milestone meets all the criteria to be considered substantive. ASU 2010-17 is effective for milestones achieved in fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after June 15, 2010 and should be applied prospectively. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the potential impact, if any, of the new accounting guidance on its consolidated financial statements.
 
In April 2010, the FASB issued an authoritative pronouncement on effect of denominating the exercise price of a share-based payment award in the currency of the market in which the underlying equity securities trades and that currency is different from (1) entity’s functional currency, (2) functional currency of the foreign operation for which the employee provides services, and (3) payroll currency of the employee. The pronouncement clarifies that an employee share-based payment award with an exercise price denominated in the currency of a market in which a substantial portion of the entity’s equity securities trades should not be considered to contain a condition that is not a market, performance, or service condition, and therefore should be considered an equity award assuming all other criteria for equity classification are met. The pronouncement is for interim and annual periods beginning on or after December 15, 2010, and will be applied prospectively. Affected companies will be required to record a cumulative catch-up adjustment for all awards outstanding as of the beginning of the annual period in which the guidance is adopted. This amendment is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.
 
A variety of proposed or otherwise potential accounting standards are currently under study by standard setting organizations and various regulatory agencies. Due to the tentative and preliminary nature of those proposed standards, management has not determined whether implementation of such proposed standards would be material to our consolidated financial statements.

There are no leased ATMs included in the Company’s property and equipment for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009.

Depreciation and amortization have been provided in amounts sufficient to recover asset costs over their estimated useful lives.  All components of property and equipment are being depreciated or amortized.  Depreciation and amortization expense for the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 totaled $80,125 and $101,660, respectively.

The property and equipment, idle was related to the purchase of computer hardware and software for the card management systems in June 2010.  The software and computer hardware was purchased as a turnkey operating system which focused on a loyalty based platform.  As of December 2010, the system is being expanded from its loyalty based platform to cash based platform.  The Company is expecting the expansion of the systems to be completed by the third quarter of 2011.
 
Note 4 – Deferred Costs/Intangible Assets
 
On the 9th of November 2007, E-Debit contracted with ACI Worldwide through its wholly owned subsidiary Westsphere Systems Inc. (WSI) to provide its ACI ‘Base 24 On Demand” (AOD) hosted solution for ATM and POS transaction acquiring where WSI shares responsibilities with ACI as the transaction processor.  ACI hosts the processing environment which is set up to specific requirements as set out by WSI, which supports WSI ATM and POS devices, debit and credit transaction processing and card management requirement that is unique and scalable to WSI’s current and future requirements and not shared with other ACI customers.  ACI supplies software acquisition, operation and maintenance, facilities, operations and environment development and maintenance and disaster recovery infrastructure and services; whereby WSI supports, authorizes and distributes all settlements and revenues distributions through its account maintenance software developed by WSI and specific to ACI On Demand processing platform.

As a result Westsphere Systems Inc. will process all transactions through its association with ACI hosted transaction processing solution eliminating the costs, restrictions, and potential risks of relying on third party processors.  Most importantly, the investment in the WSI role within the processing environment, or switch, will also enable E-Debit’s direct entry into new and emerging markets such as card management and processing.

The Company determined that it would be more appropriate to capitalizing the development costs instead of expensing them as incurred.  The Company’s decision was based on the criteria that ACI has established the technological feasibility for the software to provide a solution for ATM and POS transaction acquiring which is called ACI ‘Base 24 On Demand’ (AOD) and where all research and development activities for the other components of the product or process have been completed by them.  E-Debit was working with ACI to setup specific requirements as set out by WSI which will supports WSI ATM and POS devices, debit and credit transactions processing and card management requirement that is unique and scalable to WSI’s current and future requirements and not shared with other ACI customers.

 F-12
 
 

 
The development costs commenced in 2007 and were capitalized as deferred costs.  The Company decided to defer amortizing these costs until all the specific requirements as set out by WSI with ACI were completed.  This was due to the matching principle where the Company had not been generating revenue from processing transactions through its association with ACI to offset against it related expenses in the same period.

E-Debit officially launched its switch in January 2009 and commenced rollover of ATMs to process all transactions through its association with ACI.  The deferred costs were reclassified as intangible assets upon the completion of all the specific requirements including coding and testing in year 2009.  The reclassification occurred when E-Debit commenced generation of revenue by processing transactions through its association with ACI and distributed all settlements and revenue distributions through its account maintenance software.

The Company assessed the useful life of the intangible asset in relation to its five-year contract with ACI.  The Company also determined the technology may be outdated at the end of the term of the contract and an enhancement of the software may be required at that time.

Depreciation is calculated using a declining balance method.

Note 5– Notes Receivable
