PART I

 

Item 1. Business

 

5BARz International Inc.(“5BARz” or the “Company”) is in the business of the development, sales and marketing of a line of cellular network infrastructure devices for use in the small office, home and mobile market places.  This next generation cellular network extender, branded as 5BARz™ incorporates a patented technology to create a highly engineered, single-piece, plug ‘n play unit that strengthens weak cellular signals to deliver higher quality signals for voice, data and video reception on cell phones, and other cellular devices.

 

The Company’s initial product, the Road Warrior, won the prestigious 2010 innovation of the year award at CES (the largest consumer electronics show in the world) for achievements in product design and engineering. The Road Warrior, has passed FCC Certification, and has been produced in limited quantities to date by a contract manufacturer in the Philippines.

 

The market opportunity for the 5Barz technology represents some 5.4 billion cell phone subscribers worldwide serviced by 900 cellular network operators. These cellular network operators represent the Company’s primary point of entry to the Global marketplace.

 

The 5BARz business opportunity to bring this state of the art technology to market  represents a significant step forward in the deployment of micro-cell technology, referred to as a ‘cellular network infrastructure device” in the industry. A step that management believes will significantly improve the functionality of cellular networks by managing cellular signal within the vicinity of the user.  This technology facilitates cellular usage in areas where structures, create “cellular shadows” or weak spots within metropolitan areas, and highly congested areas such as freeways, and also serves to amplify cellular signal as users move away from cellular towers in urban areas.  The market potential of the technology is far reaching.

 

Company History

 

5BARz was incorporated on November 17, 2008 and is a Nevada Corporation. On December 30, 2010 the Company acquired the “Master Global Marketing and Distribution Agreement” for the marketing and distribution of 5BARz products throughout the world. In addition to the acquisition of the marketing and distribution rights, the Company entered into an agreement, as amended, for the acquisition of a 60% interest in the underlying intellectual property comprising the 5BARz products, and holds a security interest over the balance of those assets.

On March 27, 2012, subsequent to the balance sheet date for this 10K, 5BARz acquired a 60% controlling interest in Cellynx Group, Inc. the entity which originally developed the 5BARz technology. This represents a significant step forward in bringing the originators of the technology together and under common control with the Company, to facilitate a more synergistic and clearly defined development platform for the globalization of the 5BARz technology.

On November 7, 2011, the Company commenced the incorporation of a subsidiary Company in Zurich Switzerland called 5BARz AG. At December 31, 2011 the Company held a 99.5% equity interest in that entity. 5Barz Ag has been granted the exclusive rights by way of a sub-license for the Sales and Marketing of the 5BARz products in the region, commonly referred to as the “DACH” in Europe, comprised of Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Prior to December 30, 2010 the Registrant was a designated shell Company pursuant to Section 12B-2 of the Exchange Act of 1934, and operated under the name Bio-Stuff Inc. The business of Bio-Stuff was comprised of the development of bio-degradeable products. That business has been abandoned by the Company.

The Market Opportunity

The market opportunity for the 5BARz technology represents some 4.8 billion cell phone subscribers worldwide and is growing as a result of the following factors;

·Dead zones, weak signals, and dropped calls are the biggest problems in the industry. Now, by adding internet and video, the quality issue is increasing exponentially.
·76% of cellular subscribers use their mobile phone as the primary phone
·More consumers are using mobile phones for web browsing, up and down- loading photos, videos and music
·More mobile phones are operating at higher frequencies which have less ability to penetrate buildings
·Weak signals make internet applications inaccessible and slow and increase the drain on cell phone batteries.
·Forty percent of all mobile phone users report inadequate service in their homes or office and we estimate that 60% of the 4.8 billion mobile phone users worldwide consider continuous connectivity to be very important.

Why Poor Signals Exist

A variety of factors may cause dropped calls and dead zones, including congestion, radio signal interference, tower hand-off, and lack of coverage. Despite continued infrastructure investment by operators, and antenna technology improvements by base station providers and mobile phone makers, these problems will continue for the foreseeable future. This is because many of the contributing factors can't be controlled by the operators and manufacturers. To understand how innovative 5BARz products are in improving phone signals, it's first important to understand the causes of poor signal quality.

Congestion

In 1999, sales of mobile phones surpassed combined sales of personal computers and automobiles. By 2010, mobile phones had replaced land-line phones in 30% of U.S. households. Smart phones, led by iPhones and Android phones, have become indispensible personal assistants. Laptop computer sales outnumber desktop computer sales, and most laptops are equipped with cellular data chipsets or USB modems. Apple's iPad has sparked the connected tablet market too. Vending machines, automobiles, mobile sensors, and many other devices include "machine to machine" cellular data modules. As a result, the number of cellular voice and data devices will soon exceed the number of people on Earth.

If sheer numbers weren't enough, new uses for mobile devices are causing even faster growth in bandwidth usage. Obvious uses include video entertainment, videoconferencing, downloaded and streaming music, MMS, email, and application downloads. Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, and many other social networking applications put further load on operator networks. Also, surprising sources of traffic have emerged, such as deliberate "miscalls". A miscall is when one subscriber calls another, but hangs up before the receiving party answers. Since operators don't charge for these uncompleted calls, subscribers are using miscalls as a free way to communicate. In India, orders for milk are made this way. In Syria, five miscalls in a row signals the recipient to "go online" to the Internet and chat. In Bangladesh, it's estimated that up to 70% of traffic at peak times is due to miscalls. This practice isn't limited to countries with low per-capita income, and yet it places a high load on operator networks.

There are sources of congestion based on location and time, too. Transportation clusters like airports, major highway intersections, bridges, and toll road gates all bring many people together at peak times. Also, because of home land-line replacement, many residential neighborhoods have many mobile phones in simultaneous use in mornings and evenings. Lastly, local population growth and immigration can result in too many phones for existing infrastructure. Due to long planning times, investment requirements, local government permits, and construction time, it's difficult for infrastructure to keep up with the pace of change in many developing areas, especially in growth countries.

Radio Signal Interference

Interference comes from both obvious and subtle causes. Certain materials aren't transparent to radio signals, especially durable materials used in buildings, large structures, and even automobiles. As a result there are radio shadows in which a mobile phone can't sense the signal from a base station. In addition, radio signals from adjacent channels or reflected signals can interfere with each other due to wave cancellation effects. In some cases these forms of interference primarily attenuate the signal (make it weaker). However, interference can also add noise, so that the ratio of signal to noise becomes too low for the mobile phone and the base station to understand each other.

Tower Hand-Off

Mobile phone networks are called "cellular" networks because they are made up of overlapping areas of coverage that are provided by base stations in fixed locations. As a mobile subscriber travels by automobile or train, he will eventually reach the limit of a base station's coverage. At that point, his mobile phone will "hand off" to a base station for the next coverage area. If signal quality is poor due to interference, or if the new base station is congested with too many mobile phones, the subscriber's connection may be lost.

Lack of Coverage

Some rural or developing areas don't have enough people or population density for operators to justify the cost of installing base stations except at wide intervals. In these areas the signal strength from the base station or the mobile phone may be too low to create or maintain a connection. This results in "dead zones" or dropped calls.

Solutions to Poor Signal Quality

Operators know that dead zones, dropped calls, and poor voice quality are big problems, and that re-dialing while driving can be unsafe. Operators also are concerned about subscribers' ability to make emergency calls. They understand that people rely on mobile phones for business and connecting with family. As mobile phones replace landlines, operators are especially aware that mobile signal quality is critical. Operators also see that wireless data is increasingly important for personal and business use.

To help, operators work with phone and base station manufacturers to improve antenna performance. They invest in new base stations in growth areas. They invest in technologies that enable more connections per base station. Operators have even provided refunds for dropped calls.

However, many factors causing poor signal quality can't be controlled by operators. Therefore products have emerged to help, provided by operators or companies who sell to either operators or subscribers.

Femtocells

Operators can provide femtocells to subscribers with poor signal quality at home. Usually the subscriber pays for hardware, installation, or a monthly fee. Femtocells are carrier grade, and are like small base stations that communicate with operators by using the home Internet connection as a "backhaul". They often can't be moved after installation, must be installed by a skilled technician in order to work properly and to avoid causing network problems. Many femtocells provide only a voice connection, not data. Lastly, femtocells usually only work with phones from one operator, so families with phones from multiple operators may have to request multiple femtocells.

Repeaters

Repeaters are usually carrier-grade equipment and are programmed for a specific operator. They extend cellular networks into buildings and small offices. As with femtocells, installation is complex and if not done properly they can cause network problems. Unlike femtocells, repeaters do not use the local Internet connections, but rather receive and re-transmit the signals between base stations and mobile phones.

Boosters

Boosters are usually sold online and through retail. They vary widely in amplification power, quality of amplification, and power balance. For example, these products amplify signals at 1, 3, 5, or even 10 watts all the time. Using power over 1 watt increases the probability that a booster will interfere with surrounding mobile devices. Also, it would be more energy efficient to adapt amplification power as needed, rather than to simply use the same wattage constantly. Many boosters don't support balanced power in both directions between base station and mobile phone. This may result in only solving the signal quality problem in one direction. Since communication is bi-directional, this doesn't actually solve the problem. Varying quality of amplification also introduces noise, which can interfere with surrounding devices.

A New Class of Solution

5BARz has evaluated the causes of poor signal quality, the needs of both operators and subscribers, and the solutions in the market. Femtocells, repeaters, and boosters either don't solve all parts of the problem, or aren't optimal due to cost or other drawbacks. Using expertise from a team of engineers who designed sophisticated base station amplifiers for operators, 5BARz has developed a new class of carrier-grade technology. This is a hybrid of repeaters and boosters, and is intended for automotive, home, and office use. 5BARz has tested these products in the lab, in the real world, and with operators, and also won the Innovation of the Year award at the 2010 CES conference. These products advance the state of the art to provide the following advantages:

 

 

10


 

 
 

Low Power Use

5BARz products only amplify when required. The automotive products use less than 1/2 watt, while the home product uses less than 1 watt. This not only saves energy, but also minimizes interference with other wireless devices and the network itself. In fact, new rules being proposed by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission are expected to mandate low power standards such as 5BARz now provides.

Simple Setup

5BARz products don't require a technician to run wires, carefully determine proper location, or optimize orientation. No use of home Internet connection is required, and there are no switches or settings.

Balanced Amplification

Received and sent signals need balanced assistance in order for both directions of a communication channel to be improved. 5BARz products are not only smart about adapting amplification levels, but also about balancing amplification for incoming signals from the base station, and return signals from the mobile phone.

Signal Stability

5BARz has done extensive design, testing, and re-design to avoid a number of problems experienced by the antenna design of alternatives. For example, booster products can experience oscillations when people, animals, or vehicles move nearby. These oscillations can weaken the booster effect or cause interference with other wireless devices. Many booster products achieve size similar to 5BARz' products by putting antennas close together in the same product package, but don't optimize radio wave interactions between those antennas. This weakens the boosters' effectiveness, and is one reason why other manufacturers compensate by using too much wattage, in turn wasting power and increasing the probability of interfering with other radio frequency devices and the network.

MARKETING STRATEGY – 2012

 

The Company has embarked upon a multi channel marketing strategy with significant emphasis in Latin America as a direct result of the very favorable factors and the stage of development of the cellular markets in South and Central America and Mexico, more fully addressed herein.

 

During 2011, that Company has had several NDA’s signed by major wireless operators in that region as they are currently in the process of analyzing the 5BARz products in their labs. This is the initial step before full scale endorsement of the technology and integration into their marketing infrastructure.

 

Advanced levels of interest with major distributors in the Latam marketplace are expected to see substantive sales results within the current fiscal year. In fact the Company received a purchase order for the production of 16,000 Road Warrior units to be delivered into Mexico in 2012.

 

The Company has been expanding its employee/consultant base in Latin America and USA due to significant product interest. More recently we have set a structure for the development of the German speaking market place in Europe, through a subsidiary operation 5BARz AG in Zurich Switzerland.

 

 

The LATAM Market

 

The Company has analyzed the fundamentals of the mobile phone market in the LATAM countries and has determined that to be a key point for market penetration for the 5BARz products for the following reasons;

First, the mobile phone market has just gone through a very strong decade of growth in Latin America, with mobile subscriptions having overtaken fixed lines as the preferred method of communication. As a result Latin America's mobile telephone industry has a high degree of market penetration. Mobile subscriptions totaled 88.2% of the region's population, compared to 55.2% in Asia Pacific, 90.4% in North America and 50.6% in the Middle East and Africa. Having recently invested heavily in subscription development, the cellular network operators are now focusing upon the maintenance of their substantial customer base, and the 5BARz technology can contribute substantially to achieving that customer satisfaction.

The mobile telephone industry in Latin America has benefited from generally opening up to competition. This provides a very fertile ground for the introduction of a technology such as 5BARz to secure customer retention through quality of service.

The inherent geographical difficulties in laying fixed line infrastructure have encouraged a move to mobiles, but in addition, that geography, the Andean and Rainforest regions and expanses of rural areas again benefit from the 5BARz technology whereby weak cellular signal is amplified within the vicinity of the user.

Further the LATAM countries are experiencing a renewed era of strong growth, reflecting reviving economic growth and improving income levels. This again is a favorable factor for the introduction of our products to meet the growing demands of consumers.

In addition, the launch of 3G and mobile broadband services has increased demand for mobile subscriptions. Mobile broadband is particularly desirable in areas with no or limited access to cable internet services. Moving to mobiles offers consumers the benefits of on-the-move communications and advantageous introductory deals. Greater access to communications also helps to narrow regional divides. All of these factors are enhanced by the 5BARz experience.

In fact internet usage is set to take off from 2010, with broadband internet subscriptions generally growing by higher rates than mobile subscriptions

Initial 3G market expansion is likely to be greater in the region's wealthier markets, such as Argentina, Chile and Mexico, and these have been specifically targeted by our Company with very favorable results.

The DACH/D-Deutschland or Germany, A-Austria and CH-Switzerland group of countries in the European Union represents one of the most technologically advanced and progressive sectors of that economic group representing a German speaking majority population based of 90.3 million people of which Germany, 78.3 million, Austria, 7.4 million, and Switzerland, 4.6 million

 

Formation of Subsidiary Company, 5BARz AG

 

On October 6, 2011, 5BARz International Inc. commenced the organization under the laws of Switzerland, in the Canton of Zurich, a wholly owned subsidiary called 5BAR AG. In so doing the registrant acquired 5,100,000 shares, of the issued and outstanding stock of the newly incorporated Company. Aggregate proceeds paid for the shares were CHF 51,000 representing the fully paid price of CHF 0.01 per share. 5BARz AG simultaneously had approved and issued to an escrow agent 4,900,000 fully paid shares, at a price of CHF 0.01 per share for aggregate proceeds of CHF 49,000. Those shares are being held for resale, and are more fully described herein. The net proceeds received on re-sale will be paid into 5BARz AG as additional paid in capital. The documentation on this transaction was completed on March 26, 2012.

 

The newly formed subsidiary has appointed two directors, one of which, Mr. Daniel Bland is the President, CEO and a Director of the registrant. The other Director is Mr. Peter Burkhardt of Oberengstringen, Zurich, Switzerland.

Engagement of BDC Investment AG:

 

On October 15, 2011, 5Barz AG, entered into an agreement with BDC Investment AG., an independent investment Company in Oberengstringen, Zurich, Switzerland to act as agent for the Company for the sale of the 4,900,000 shares referred to above, on a best efforts basis. In addition to acting as agent for the 5BARz AG, BDC Investment AG will provide consulting services and will be responsible for corporate communications, for 5BARz AG in the European marketplace.

 

Global Marketing and Distribution Agreement

 

On October 19, 2011, 5BARz International Inc. entered into a Marketing and Distribution agreement with 5BARz AG, through which 5BARz AG holds the exclusive rights for the marketing and distribution of products produced under the 5BARz brand for markets in Switzerland, Austria and Germany. This sales and marketing program will commence upon completion of the corporate formation and funding.

 

 

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

 

Need For Additional Financing

 

The Company has very limited funds, and such funds may not be adequate to take advantage of current and planned business opportunities. Even if the Company's funds prove to be sufficient to acquire an interest in, or complete upon transactions contemplated, the Company may not have enough capital to fully develop the opportunity. The ultimate success of the Company may depend upon its ability to raise additional capital. As additional capital is needed, there is no assurance that funds will be available from any source or, if available, that they can be obtained on terms acceptable to the Company. If not available, the Company's operations will be limited.

 

 

Ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company has accrued net losses of $781,147 for the period from inception November 14, 2008, to December 31, 2011. The Company has earned no revenues to date.  Consequently the Company’s future is dependent upon their ability to obtain financing and to execute upon their business plan and to create future profitable operations for the business.  These factors raise substantial doubt that the Company will be able to continue as a going concern. In the event that the Company cannot raise further debt or equity capital, or achieve profitable operations, the Company may have to liquidate their business interests and investors may lose their investment.

 

Lack of profitable operating history

 

The Company faces all of the risks of a new business and the special risks inherent in the investigation, acquisition, and involvement in a new business opportunity. The Company must be regarded as a new or "start-up" venture with all of the unforeseen costs, expenses, problems, and difficulties to which such ventures are subject, and consequently has a high risk or failure.

 

19

 

 
 

 

Dependence upon a sole director and limited management and consultants

 

The Company currently has only one individuals serving as its officer and director, and few employees and consultants. The Company will be heavily dependent upon their skills, talents, and abilities to implement its business plan, and secure additional personnel and may, from time to time, find that the inability of the officers and directors to fully meet the needs of the business of the Company results in a delay in progress toward implementing its business plan.

 

We may conduct further offerings in the future in which case investors' shareholdings may be diluted.

 

Since our inception, we have relied on sales of our common stock to fund our operations. We may conduct further equity offerings in the future to finance our current operations. If common stock is issued in return for additional funds, the price per share could be lower than that paid by our current stockholders.  We anticipate continuing to rely on equity sales of our common stock in order to fund our business operations. If we issue additional stock, investors' percentage interests in us will be diluted. The result of this could reduce the value of current investors' stock.

 

Regulation of Penny Stocks.

 

The Company's securities, are subject to a Securities and Exchange Commission rule that imposes special sales practice requirements upon broker-dealers who sell such securities to persons other than established customers or accredited investors. For purposes of the rule, the phrase "accredited investors" means, in general terms, institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000, or individuals having a net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or having an annual income that exceeds $200,000 (or that, when combined with a spouse's income, exceeds $300,000). For transactions covered by the rule, the broker-dealer must make a special suitability determination for the purchaser and receive the purchaser's written agreement to the transaction prior to the sale. Consequently, the rule may affect the ability of broker- dealers to sell the Company's securities and also may affect the ability of purchasers in this offering to sell their securities in any market that might develop therefore.

 

In addition, the Securities and Exchange Commission has adopted a number of rules to regulate "penny stocks." Such rules include Rules 3a51-1, 15g-1, 15g-2, 15g-3, 15g-4, 15g-5, 15g-6, 15g-7, and 15g-9 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Because the securities of the Company may constitute "penny stocks" within the meaning of the rules, the rules would apply to the Company and to its securities. The rules may further

affect the ability of owners of Shares to sell the securities of the Company in any market that might develop for them.

 

Shareholders should be aware that, according to Securities and Exchange Commission, the market for penny stocks has suffered in recent years from patterns of fraud and abuse. Such patterns include (i) control of the market for the security by one or a few broker-dealers that are often related to the promoter or issuer; (ii) manipulation of prices through prearranged matching of purchases and sales and false and misleading press releases; (iii) "boiler room" practices involving high-pressure sales tactics and unrealistic price projections by inexperienced sales persons; (iv) excessive and undisclosed bid-ask differentials and markups by selling broker-dealers; and (v) the wholesale dumping of the same securities

 

20

 

 
 

 

by promoters and broker-dealers after prices have been manipulated to a desired level, along with the resulting inevitable collapse of those prices and with consequent investor losses. The Company's management is aware of the abuses that have occurred historically in the penny stock market. Although the Company does not expect to be in a position to dictate the behavior of the market or of broker-dealers who participate in the market, management will strive within the confines of practical limitations to prevent the described patterns from being established with respect to the Company's securities.

 

Our common stock is not listed on a national exchange and as a public market develops in the future, it may be limited and highly volatile, which may generally affect any future price of our common stock.

 

Our common stock currently is listed only in the over-the-counter market on the OTCBB, which is a reporting service and not a securities exchange.  We cannot assure investors that in the future our common stock would ever qualify for inclusion on any of the NASDAQ markets for our common stock, The American Stock Exchange or any other national exchange or that more than a limited market will ever develop for our common stock.  The lack of an orderly market for our common stock may negatively impact the volume of trading and market price for our common stock.

 

Any future prices for our common stock will be determined in the marketplace and may be influenced by many factors, including the following:

 

  · the depth and liquidity of the markets for our common stock;

 

  · investor perception of 5BARz International Inc. and the industry in which we participate;

 

  · general economic and market conditions;

 

  · statements or changes in opinions, ratings or earnings estimates made by brokerage firms or industry analysts relating to the market in which we do business or relating to us specifically, as has occurred in the past;

 

  · quarterly variations in our results of operations;

 

  · general market conditions or market conditions specific to technology industries; and

 

  · domestic and international macroeconomic factors.

 

In addition, the stock market has recently experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations.  These fluctuations are often unrelated to the operating performance of the specific companies.  As a result of the factors identified above, a stockholder (due to personal circumstances) may be required to sell his shares of our common stock at a time when our stock price is depressed due to random fluctuations, possibly based on factors beyond our control.

 

 

 

 

 

 

21

 

 
 

 

Impracticability of Exhaustive Investigation.

 

The Company's limited funds and the lack of full-time management will likely make it impracticable to conduct a complete and exhaustive investigation and analysis of its chosen business opportunity before the Company commits its capital or other resources thereto. Management decisions, therefore, will likely be made without detailed feasibility studies, independent analysis, market surveys and the like which, if the Company had more funds available to it, would be desirable.

 

Other Regulation.

 

The Company may be subject to regulation or licensing by federal, state, or local authorities. Compliance with such regulations and licensing can be expected to be a time-consuming, expensive process and may limit other investment opportunities of the Company.

 

Failure to Perform

 

The Company may be unable to comply with the payment terms of certain agreements providing the Company with the exclusive sales marketing and distribution rights to 5BARz product. In the event that the Company defaults on such agreements, the Company may be unable to maintain operations as a going concern.

 

Reliance on Third parties

 

The Company has entered into certain agreements related to the exclusive sales marketing and distribution rights. In the event that the production Company is unable or unwilling for any reason to supply product under the terms of such agreement, the Company may not be able distribute product or may have business interrupted as they secure alternative production facilities.

 

Competitive Technologies

 

The Companies technology relates to a market that is highly competitive and a much sought after solution by cellular networks. The Company expects to be at a disadvantage when competing with firms that have substantially greater financial and management resources and capabilities than the Company. The Company is subject to technological obsolescence should other technologies be developed which are superior to the Companies technology.

Overview

 

5BARz International Inc. is the exclusive distributor of a proprietary line of Cellular Network Extenders developed by CelLynx Group, Inc. under the 5BARz brand. These highly engineered products are state of the art consumer electronics that manage cell signal within the proximity of the user. The products are plug and play, without the need for extensive set up, and can be delivered as carrier agnostic or set to operate on a single carriers network. The first product brought to market is the 5BARz Road Warrior, a plug and play device designed for users on the go. The Company is in the process of the development of the financing, product development and the sales and marketing activities required to launch this business globally.

The financial and business analysis below provides information we believe is relevant to an assessment and understanding of our financial position, results of operations and cash flows. This financial and business analysis should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and related notes included in this form 10-K.

 

Going Concern

 

The registrant has an accumulated deficit through December 31, 2011 totaling $834,377 and recurring losses and negative cash flows from operations. Because of these conditions, the registrant will require additional working capital to develop its business operations. The registrant's success will depend on its ability to raise money through debt and the sale of stock and the development and sale of product to meet its cash flow requirements. The ability to execute its strategic plan is contingent upon raising the necessary cash to raise the necessary working capital to launch the global sales and marketing activities for the Company along with the funding of the Cellynx Group Inc. deficit acquired on March 29, 2012, in the amount of $2.2 million dollars.

 

Management believes that the market sectors that it is in the process of developing in Latin America, sectors within Western Europe, and the USA will yield significant results in the current fiscal year. Further, the efforts the Company has made to promote its business has received favorable support to date from Cellular network operators and we expect that to will continue for the foreseeable future. If the Company’s capital raising efforts do not continue to be successful, the registrant's ability to continue as a going concern will be in question. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of asset carrying amounts or the amount and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the registrant be unable to continue as a going concern.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section discusses our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of the financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results may differ from these estimates.  

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As at December 31, 2011

 

As at the year ended December 31, 2011, our current assets were $73,512 and our current liabilities were $1,541,498, which resulted in a working capital deficiency of ($1,467,986). As at the year ended December 31, 2011, current liabilities were comprised of: (i) $236,446 in accounts payable and accrued expenses; and (ii) $1,196,498 due to Cellynx for intellectual property (iii) $53,033 due to our escrow agent in relation to financing operations underway in Europe and (iv) $55,318 due pursuant to a loan agreement from an investor. On March 29, 2012 the $1,196,498 due to Cellynx Group, Inc .was settled and replaced through the issuance of shares by the Company to pay for the Company’s interest in intellectual property in full. In addition, the loan agreement referred to in item (iv) was paid in full in March 2012.

As at the year ended December 31, 2011, our total assets were $2,376,355, comprised of: (i) $68,368 in current assets; and (ii) $1,883,650 comprised of the cost of a 50% interest in the 5BARz intellectual property, (iii) $250,152 due from Cellynx Group, Inc pursuant to a revolving line of credit agreement and (iv) $170,000 comprised of a deposit on the acquisition of 63,412,638 shares in the capital stock of Cellynx Group, Inc.

 

As at the year ended December 31, 2011, our total liabilities were $1,661,935 (2010 - $1,898,385) . In the first quarter of 2012, $1,252,019 of those liabilities were settled by the Company in addition to the settlement of some current liabilities which are a revolving balance.

 

Stockholders’ equity increased from a deficit of $14,735 for fiscal year ended December 31, 2010 to stockholders’ equity of $714,420 for the year ended December 31, 2011.

 

We believe we can satisfy our cash requirements for the next twelve months with equity financing or loans, in addition to gross margin on the sale of product. Subsequent to December 31, 2011 the Company has raised equity capital by way of Private Placements of $2,426,840 at prices ranging from $0.10 to $0.20 per share, completed January 1, 2012 to March 30, 2012. In addition the Company has raised $132,000 by way of the sale of equity securities by the Company's subsidiary Company 5BARz AG subsequent to year end. Further, the Company has a purchase order in the amount of $3.2 million for the sale of product, a sale which the Company is currently in the process of financing and completing product.

 

We anticipate that our operational and general and administrative expenses for the next 12 months will be substantive, but maintained in relation to our ability to raise capital. When sufficient financing is received, we will add additional management, engineering, and sales personnel. However, we do not intend to increase our staff until such time as we can raise the capital or generate revenues to support the additional costs. The exact allocation, purposes and timing of any monies raised in subsequent private financings may vary significantly depending upon the exact amount of funds raised and our progress with the execution of our business plan.

 

 

Limited Operating History

 

We have a limited operating history and consequently we cannot guarantee that the expansion efforts described in this report will be successful. Our business is subject to risks inherent in growing an enterprise, including limited capital resources and possible rejection of our new products and/or sales methods.

 

Inventory

 

We currently do not have any inventories.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

We have not earned any revenue to date.

Going Concern

 

The independent auditors' report accompanying our financial statements contains an explanatory paragraph expressing substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements have been prepared "assuming that we will continue as a going concern," which contemplates that we will realize our assets and satisfy our liabilities and commitments in the ordinary course of business.

 

Management believes that actions presently being taken to obtain additional funding and implement its strategic plans provide the opportunity for us to continue as a going concern.

 

Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

 

Market risk is the risk of loss from adverse changes in market prices and interest rates. We do not have substantial operations at this time so they are not susceptible to these market risks.  If, however, they begin to generate substantial revenue, their operations will be materially impacted by interest rates and market prices.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

 

Board of Directors

5BARZ INTERNATIONAL, INC.

Blaine, WA

 

We have audited the balance sheets of 5BARZ INTERNATIONAL, INC. a development stage company, as at December 31, 2011 and 2010, the statements of earnings and deficit, stockholders’ deficiency and cash flows for the periods then ended and the period from inception November 14, 2008 to December 31, 2011. Theses financial statements are the responsibility of the company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that I plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for my opinion.

 

 

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of 5BARZ INTERNATIONAL, INC. a development stage company, as of December 31, 2011 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the periods then ended in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles accepted in the United States of America.

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2, the company’s significant operating losses, working capital deficiency and need for new capital raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements

December 31, 2011 and 2010

 

Note 1 – Organization and basis of reporting

 

 

The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on November 17, 2008. At that time, the Company held certain technology related to bio-degradable product and operated under the name “Bio-Stuff”.

 

On December 29, 2010 the Company changed its name to 5BARz International, Inc. and on December 30, 2010, the Company acquired a set of agreements through which the Company acquired from Cellynx Group, Inc. certain intellectual property underlying the 5BARz products, a highly engineered microcell technology referred to as a “cellular network infrastructure device”. The 5BARz device captures cell signal and provides a smart amplification and resend of that cell signal giving the user improved cellular reception in their home, office or while mobile. Pursuant to the agreements referred to above, the Company was engaged as the exclusive agent for the global sales and marketing of the 5BARz products. On March 29, 2012, 5Barz International, Inc. acquired a 60% controlling interest in Cellynx Group, Inc.

 

On November 6, 2011, the Company incorporated a subsidiary Company in Zurich, Switzerland called 5BARz AG which is a 99.5% held subsidiary at December 31, 2011. That entity has been licensed the marketing and distribution rights for 5BARz products in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. These financial statements reflect the financial position and results of operations for the Company and its subsidiary 5BARz Ag, from inception to date.

 

Going concern

 

These financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies the Company will continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business.

At December 31, 2011, the Company was engaged in a business and had suffered losses from development stage activities to date. In addition, the Company has minimal operating funds. Although management is currently developing its sales and marketing program for the sales of 5BARz product, the Company has made no revenue to date.  The Company is seeking additional sources of equity or debt financing, and there is no assurance these activities will be successful. These factors raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Development stage

 

The Company has been in the development stage since its formation and has not yet realized any revenues from its planned operations.

Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements

December 31, 2011 and 2010

 

Note 2 - Summary of significant accounting policies

 

Basis of presentation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of 5Barz International Inc., and its 99.5% owned subsidiary, 5Barz AG. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated upon consolidation. Changes in classification of 2010 amounts have been made to conform to current presentations.

 

Cash

 

Cash and cash equivalents include cash in hand and cash in time deposits, certificates of deposit and all highly liquid debt instruments with original maturities of three months or less.

 

Use of estimates

 

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

 

Concentration of credit risk

 

Cash includes deposits in accounts maintained at financial institutions.  Certain financial instruments, which subject the Company to concentration of credit risk, consist of cash. The Company maintains balances at financial institutions which, from time to time, may exceed Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation insured limits for the banks located in the United States. As of December 31, 2011 and 2010, the Company did not have any deposits in excess of federally-insured limits.  To date, the Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts.

 

Equipment

 

Equipment is recorded at historical cost and is depreciated using the straight-line method over their estimated useful lives.  The useful life and depreciation method are reviewed periodically to ensure that the depreciation method and period are consistent with the anticipated pattern of future economic benefits. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to operations as incurred while renewals and betterments are capitalized. Gains and losses on disposals are included in the results of operations. The useful life of the equipment is being depreciated over three to five years.

Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements

December 31, 2011 and 2010

Intangible assets

 

Acquired patents, licensing rights and trademarks are capitalized at their acquisition cost or fair value. The legal costs, patent registration fees, and models and drawings required for filing patent applications are capitalized if they relate to commercially viable technologies. Commercially viable technologies are those technologies that are projected to generate future positive cash flows in the near term. Legal costs associated with applications that are not determined to be commercially viable are expensed as incurred. All research and development costs incurred in developing the patentable idea are expensed as incurred. Legal fees from the costs incurred in successful defense to the extent of an evident increase in the value of the patents are capitalized.

 

Capitalized costs for patents are amortized on a straight-line basis over the remaining twenty-year legal life of each patent after the costs have been incurred. Once each patent or trademark is issued, capitalized costs are amortized on a straight-line basis over a period not to exceed 20 years and 10 years, respectively. All research and development costs incurred in developing the patentable idea are expensed as incurred. The licensing right is amortized on a straight-line basis over a period of 10 years.

 

Impairment or disposal of long-lived assets

 

The Company applies the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 360, “Property, Plant, and Equipment,” which addresses financial accounting and reporting for the impairment or disposal of long-lived assets. ASC 360 requires impairment losses to be recorded on long-lived assets used in operations when indicators of impairment are present and the undiscounted cash flows estimated to be generated by those assets are less than the assets’ carrying amounts. In that event, a loss is recognized based on the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the long-lived assets. Loss on long-lived assets to be disposed of is determined in a similar manner, except that fair values are reduced for the cost of disposal. Based on its review, the Company believes that as of December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010, there was no significant impairment of its long-lived assets.

  

Revenue recognition

 

The Company's revenue recognition policies are in compliance with ASC Topic 605, “Revenue Recognition.”  Revenue is recognized at the date of shipment to customers, and when the price is fixed or determinable, the delivery is completed, no other significant obligations of the Company exist and collectability is reasonably assured.

 

Foreign currency translation

 

Transactions in foreign currencies have been translated into US dollars using the temporal

method. Under this method, monetary assets and liabilities are translated at the year-end exchange

rate. Non-monetary assets have been translated at the historical rate of exchange prevailing at the

date of the transaction. Expenses have been translated at the exchange rate at the time of the

transaction. Realized and unrealized foreign exchange gains and losses are included in operations.

Notes To Consolidated Financial Statements

December 31, 2011 and 2010

 

Fair value of financial instruments

 

We have adopted Accounting Standards Codification regarding Disclosure About Derivative Financial Instruments and Fair Value of Financial Instruments. The carrying amounts of cash, accounts payable, accrued expenses, and other current liabilities approximate fair value because of the short 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 in the management of foreign exchange, commodity price or interest rate market risks.

 

Income taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes.” ASC 740 requires a company to use the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes, whereby deferred tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences, and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences. Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion, or all of, the deferred tax assets will not be realized.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

 

Under ASC 740, a tax position is recognized as a benefit only if it is “more likely than not” that the tax position would be sustained in a tax examination, with a tax examination being presumed to occur. The amount recognized is the largest amount of tax benefit that is greater than 50% likely of being realized on examination. For tax positions not meeting the “more likely than not” test, no tax benefit is recorded. The adoption had no effect on the Company’s financial statements.  Penalties and interest incurred related to underpayment of income tax are classified as income tax expense in the period incurred.  No significant penalties or interest relating to income taxes have been incurred during the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010.

 

Net loss per share

 

The Company reports loss per share in accordance with the ASC Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share.” , which requires presentation of basic and diluted EPS on the face of the income statement for all entities with complex capital structures and requires a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the basic EPS computation to the numerator and denominator of the diluted EPS computation.  In the accompanying financial statements, basic earnings per share of common stock is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period.  We do not have a complex capital structure requiring the computation of diluted earnings per share.

Recent accounting pronouncements

 

In December 2010, the FASB issued updated guidance on when and how to perform certain steps of the periodic goodwill impairment test for public entities that may have reporting units with zero or negative carrying amounts. This guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2010, with early adoption prohibited.  The adoption of this standard update did not impact the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In May 2011, the FASB issued guidance to amend certain measurement and disclosure requirements related to fair value measurements to improve consistency with international reporting standards. This guidance is effective prospectively for public entities for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2011, with early adoption by public entities prohibited. The Company is currently evaluating this guidance, but does not expect its adoption will have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In June 2011, the FASB issued new guidance on the presentation of comprehensive income that will require a company to present components of net income and other comprehensive income in one continuous statement or in two separate, but consecutive statements. There are no changes to the components that are recognized in net income or other comprehensive income under current GAAP. This guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2011, with early adoption permitted.  The Company is currently evaluating this guidance, but does not expect its adoption will have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.

Note 5 - Federal income tax:

 

 

The Company has provided no current income taxes due to the losses incurred from November 17, 2008 (date of inception), through December 31, 2011. Net operating losses of approximately $708,000 at December 31, 2011, are available for carryover. The net operating losses will expire from 2028 through 2031. The Company has provided a 100% valuation allowance for the deferred tax benefit resulting from the net operating loss carryover due to our limited operating history. In addressing the ability to realize the benefit of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income during the periods in which those temporary differences are deductible. When we demonstrate a history of profitable operation, we will reduce our valuation allowance at that time.

 

 

A reconciliation of the statutory Federal income tax rate and the effective income tax rate for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 follows:

The Company’s internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance to the Company’s management and Board of Directors regarding the preparation and fair presentation of published financial statements in accordance with United State’s generally accepted accounting principles (US GAAP), including those policies and procedures that: (i) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company, (ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with US GAAP and that receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company, and (iii) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting based on the framework in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission.  Management’s assessment included an evaluation of the design of our internal control over financial reporting and testing of the operational effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting.  Based on this assessment, Management concluded the Company did  maintain effective internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2011.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements.  Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation.

 

 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit the Company to provide only management’s report in this Annual Report.

On December 30, 2010, the Registrant, 5Barz International Inc., a Nevada corporation, (“5BARz”), acquired, pursuant to an Assignment Agreement from Dollardex Group Corp., a Panamanian Corporation controlled by Mr. Daniel Bland, the President and CEO of the Registrant, all right title and  interest in an “Amended and Restated Master Global Marketing and Distribution Agreement”, an “Asset Purchase Agreement”, a “Line of Credit Agreement” and a “Security Agreement”, collectively referred to as “The Agreements”.  The Agreements, as restated, had originally been entered into between CelLynx Group, Inc., a Nevada Corporation and Dollardex Group Corp., a Panamanian Corporation, on October 5, 2010.    The Agreements relate principally to the development of the sales and marketing of the 5BARz™ line of products and related accessories by 5BARz International Inc

 

DESCRIPTION OF ASSETS INVOLVED

 

Collectively, the agreements referred to above provide to 5BARz International Inc., the business opportunity to commercialize a state of the art technology developed by CelLynx related to the manufacture and sale of ‘cellular network extenders” as well as a 1/2 interest in the patent applications, and legal equivalents thereto owned by Cellynx.  It is these agreements that represent the asset acquired by 5BARz International Inc.

 

DESCRIPTION OF PARTIES FROM WHOM THE ASSETS WERE ACQUIRED

  

The Assets have been acquired by 5BARz International Inc. from Dollardex Group Corp.  Both Companies, 5BARz and Dollardex, are controlled by the President and CEO of  both Companies, Mr. Daniel Bland.

 

NATURE AND AMOUNT OF CONSIDERATION PAID FOR THE ASSETS

 

The consideration paid for the assignment of the assets is comprised of a note payable in the amount of $370,000 USD payable to Dollardex Group Corp., along with interest charged at a rate of 5% per annum and payable at any time at the sole discretion of 5BARz.  In addition, 5Barz will issue 15,600,000 shares of the common stock of 5BARz International Inc.  to Dollardex Group Corp., representing 17.8% of the issued and outstanding common stock of the Registrant at the time of issue.

 

Director Independence

 

Quotations for our common stock are entered on the OTCBB inter-dealer quotation system, which does not have director independence requirements. For purposes of determining director independence, we have applied the definitions set out in NASDAQ Rule 4200(a)(15).  Under NASDAQ Rule 4200(a)(15), a director is not considered to be independent if he or she is also an executive officer or employee of the corporation.  During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010, Mr. Prata and Mr. Bland acted as our director and as our executive officer.  As such, we do not have any independent directors.

 

Item 14. Principal Accountant Fees and Services

 

Audit Fees: Aggregate fees billed for professional services rendered for the audit of our annual financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 were approximately $10,000 and $3,500 respectively.

 

 

37

 

 
 

Audit-related Fees: No fees were billed for assurance and related services reasonably related to the performance of the audit or review of our financial statements and not reported under “Audit Fees” above in the years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010.

 

Tax Fees: There were no fees for tax services for the years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010.

 

All Other Fees: There were no fees billed for professional services other than those described above were for the years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010.

 

Effective May 6, 2003, the Securities and Exchange Commission adopted rules that require that before our auditor is engaged by us to render any auditing or permitted non-audit related service, the engagement be:

 

-approved by our audit committee; or

 

-entered into pursuant to pre-approval policies and procedures established by the audit committee, provided the policies and procedures are detailed as to the particular  service,  the  audit committee is informed of each service, and such policies and procedures do not include delegation of the audit committee's responsibilities to management.

 

We do not have an audit committee.  Our entire board of directors pre-approves all services provided by our independent auditors.

 

 

The pre-approval process has just been implemented in response to the new rules. Therefore, our board of directors does  not have  records of  what percentage of the above fees were pre-approved.  However, all of the above services and fees were reviewed and approved by the entire board of directors either before or after the respective services were rendered.
