PART I
 
 
ITEM 1.   BUSINESS.
 
Overview
 
Retrospettiva, Inc. was organized under the laws of the State of California in November, 1990 for the purpose of manufacturing and importing textile products, including finished garments and fabrics.  Our manufacturing facilities and inventories were primarily located in Europe.  Our European operations were based in and around Macedonia.  On July 2, 2001, we announced that the civil war in Macedonia rendered it impossible to continue operations.  We ceased operations and liquidated all of our assets.

From 2002 until 2006, the Company was dormant.  Effective October 11, 2006 (commencement of new development stage), the Company commenced activities to become current in reporting with the SEC with the intention to become a publicly traded company. Retrospettiva intends to evaluate, structure and complete a merger with, or acquisition of, one or a small number of private companies, partnerships or sole proprietorships. Retrospettiva may seek to acquire a controlling interest in one or more private companies in contemplation of later completing an acquisition.

Retrospettiva believes that there is a demand by non-public corporations for shell corporations that have a public distribution of securities, such as Retrospettiva. Retrospettiva believes that demand for shell corporations has increased dramatically since the Securities and Exchange Commission, (SEC), imposed additional requirements upon "blank check" companies pursuant to Reg. 419 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. According to the SEC, Rule 419 was designed to strengthen regulation of securities offerings by blank check companies, which Congress has found to have been a common vehicle for fraud and manipulation in the penny stock market. See Securities Act Releases No. 6891 (April 17, 1991), 48 SEC Docket 1131 and No. 6932 (April 13, 1992) 51 Docket 0382, SEC Docket 0382. The foregoing regulation has substantially decreased the number of "blank check" offerings filed with the SEC, and as a result has stimulated an increased demand for shell corporations. While Retrospettiva has made the foregoing assumption, there is no assurance that the same is accurate or correct and, accordingly, no assurance that Retrospettiva will merge with or acquire an existing private entity.
 
General
 
Retrospettiva proposes to seek, investigate and, if warranted, acquire an interest in one or more business opportunity ventures. As of the date hereof, Retrospettiva has no business opportunities or ventures under contemplation for acquisition or merger but proposes to investigate potential opportunities with investors or entrepreneurs with a concept which has not yet been placed in operation, or with firms which are developing companies. Retrospettiva may seek established businesses which may be experiencing financial or operational difficulties and are in need of the limited additional capital Retrospettiva could provide. After Retrospettiva has completed a merger or acquisition, the surviving entity would be Retrospettiva; however, management from the acquired entity would in all likelihood be retained to operate Retrospettiva. Due to the absence of capital available for investment by Retrospettiva, the types of business seeking to be acquired by Retrospettiva will invariably be small and high risk types of businesses. In all likelihood, a business opportunity will involve the acquisition of or merger with a corporation which does not need additional cash but which desires to establish a public trading market for its common stock.
 

 1
 
 

 
Retrospettiva does not propose to restrict its search for investment opportunities to any particular industry or geographical location and may, therefore, engage in essentially any business, anywhere, to the extent of its limited resources.

It is anticipated that business opportunities will be available to Retrospettiva and sought by Retrospettiva from various sources throughout the United States, including its officers and directors, professional advisors such as attorneys and accountants, securities broker dealers, venture capitalists, members of the financial community, other businesses and others who may present solicited and unsolicited proposals. Management believes that business opportunities and ventures will become available to it due to a number of factors, including, among others: (1) management's willingness to enter into unproven, speculative ventures; (2) management's contacts and acquaintances; and (3) Retrospettiva's flexibility with respect to the manner in which it may structure potential financing, mergers or acquisitions. However, there is no assurance that Retrospettiva will be able to structure, finance, merge with or acquire any business opportunity or venture.
 
Operation of Retrospettiva
 
Retrospettiva intends to search throughout the United States for a merger or acquisition candidate; however, because of its lack of capital, Retrospettiva believes that the merger or acquisition candidate will be conducting business within limited geographical area.

Retrospettiva's executive officers will seek acquisition/merger candidates or orally contact individuals or broker dealers and advise them of the availability of Retrospettiva as an acquisition candidate. Retrospettiva's executive officers will review material furnished to them by the proposed merger or acquisition candidates and will ultimately decide if a merger or acquisition is in the best interests of Retrospettiva and its shareholders.

Retrospettiva may employ outside consultants until a merger or acquisition candidate has been targeted by Retrospettiva, however, management believes that it is impossible to consider the criteria that will be used to hire such consultants. While Retrospettiva may hire independent consultants, it has not considered any criteria regarding their experience, the services to be provided, or the term of service. As of the date hereof, Retrospettiva has not had any discussions with any consultants and there are no agreements or understandings with any consultants. Other than as disclosed herein, there are no other plans for accomplishing the business purpose of Retrospettiva.

Selection of Opportunities

The analysis of new business opportunities will be undertaken by or under the supervision of Retrospettiva's executive officers and directors who are not professional business analysts and have had little previous training or experience in business analysis. In as much as Retrospettiva will have no funds available to it in its search for business opportunities and ventures, Retrospettiva will not be able to expend significant funds on a complete and exhaustive investigation of such business or opportunity. Retrospettiva will, however, investigate, to the extent believed reasonable by its management, such potential business opportunities or ventures.

As part of Retrospettiva's investigation, representatives of Retrospettiva will meet personally with management and key personnel of the firm sponsoring the business opportunity, visit and inspect plants and facilities, obtain independent analysis or verification of certain information provided, check references of management and key personnel, and conduct other reasonable measures, to the extent of Retrospettiva's limited financial resources and management and technical expertise.

Prior to making a decision to recommend to shareholders participation in a business opportunity or venture, Retrospettiva will generally request that it be provided with written materials regarding the business opportunity containing such items as a description of products, services and company history, management resumes, financial information, available projections with related assumptions upon which they are based, evidence of existing patents, trademarks or service marks or rights thereto, current and proposed forms of compensation to management, a description of transactions between the prospective entity and its affiliates during relevant periods, a description of current and required facilities, an analysis of risks and competitive conditions, and other information deemed relevant.

It is anticipated that the investigation of specific business opportunities and the negotiation, drafting and execution of relevant agreements, disclosure documents and other instruments will require substantial management time and attention and costs for accountants, attorneys and others. Retrospettiva's executive officers anticipate funding Retrospettiva's operations, including providing funds necessary to search for acquisition candidates, until an acquisition candidate is found, without regard to the amount involved. Accordingly, no alternative cash resources have been explored.

Retrospettiva will have unrestricted flexibility in seeking, analyzing and participating in business opportunities. In its efforts, Retrospettiva will consider the following kinds of factors:

·  
Potential for growth, indicated by new technology, anticipated market expansion or new products;
·  
Competitive position as compared to other firms engaged in similar activities;
·  
Strength of management;
·  
Capital requirements and anticipated availability of required funds from future operations, through the sale of additional securities, through joint ventures or similar arrangements or from other sources; and
·  
Other relevant factors.

Potentially available business opportunities may occur in many different industries and at various stages of development, all of which will make the task of comparative investigation and analysis of such business opportunities extremely difficult and complex. Potential investors must recognize that due to Retrospettiva's limited capital available for investigation and management's limited experience in business analysis, Retrospettiva may not discover or adequately evaluate adverse facts about the opportunity to be acquired.

Retrospettiva is unable to predict when it may participate in a business opportunity. It expects, however, that the analysis of specific proposals and the selection of a business opportunity may take several months or more. Retrospettiva does not plan to raise any capital at the present time, by private placements; public offerings, pursuant to Regulation S promulgated under the Securities Act, or by any means whatsoever. Further, there are no plans, proposals, arrangements or understandings with respect to the sale or issuance of additional securities prior to the identification of an acquisition or merger candidate.

Form of Merger or Acquisition

The manner in which Retrospettiva participates in an opportunity will depend upon the nature of the opportunity, the respective needs and desires of Retrospettiva and the merger or acquisition candidate, and the relative negotiating strength of Retrospettiva and such merger or acquisition candidate. The exact form or structure of Retrospettiva's participation in a business opportunity or venture will be dependent upon the needs of the particular situation. Retrospettiva's participation may be structured as an asset purchase, a lease, a license, a joint venture, a partnership, a merger or an acquisition of securities.

As set forth above, Retrospettiva may acquire its participation in a business opportunity through the issuance of common stock or other securities in Retrospettiva. Although the terms of any such transaction cannot be predicted, it should be noted that in certain circumstances the criteria for determining whether or not an acquisition is a so-called "tax free" reorganization under Section 368(a)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, as amended, may depend upon the issuance to the shareholders of the acquired company of at least 80% of the common stock of the combined entities immediately following the reorganization. If a transaction were structured to take advantage of these provisions rather than other "tax free" provisions provided under the Internal Revenue Code, all prior shareholders may, in such circumstances, retain 20% or less of the total issued and outstanding common stock. If such a transaction were available to Retrospettiva, it will be necessary to obtain shareholder approval to effectuate a reverse stock split or to authorize additional shares of common stock prior to completing such acquisition. This could result in substantial additional dilution to the equity of those who were shareholders of Retrospettiva prior to such reorganization. Further, extreme caution should be exercised by any investor relying upon any tax benefits in light of the proposed new tax laws. It is possible that no tax benefits will exist at all. Prospective investors should consult their own legal, financial and other business advisors.

The present management and shareholders of Retrospettiva will in all likelihood not have control of a majority of the voting shares of Retrospettiva following a reorganization transaction. In fact, it is probable that the shareholders of the acquired entity will gain control of Retrospettiva. The terms of sale of the shares presently held by management of Retrospettiva may not be afforded to other shareholders of Retrospettiva. As part of any transaction, Retrospettiva's directors may resign and new directors may be appointed without any vote by the shareholders.

Retrospettiva has an unwritten policy that it will not acquire or merge with a business or company in which Retrospettiva's management or their affiliates or associates directly or indirectly have an ownership interest. Management is not aware of any circumstances under which the foregoing policy will be changed and management, through their own initiative, will not change said policy.

Pursuant to regulations promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of1934, as amended, Retrospettiva will be required to obtain and file with the SEC audited financial statements of an acquisition candidate not later than 71 days from the date the Form 8-K is due at the SEC disclosing the merger or acquisition.

Rights of Dissenting Shareholders

Under the Colorado Business Corporation Act, a business combination typically requires the approval of a majority of the outstanding shares of both participating companies. Shareholders who vote against any business combination in certain instances may be entitled to dissent and to obtain payment for their shares pursuant to Sections 7-113-102 and 7-113-103 of the Colorado Business Corporation Act. The requirement of approval of Retrospettiva's shareholders in any business combination is limited to those transactions identified as a merger or a consolidation. A business combination identified as a share exchange under which Retrospettiva would be the survivor does not require the approval of Retrospettiva's shareholders, nor does it entitle shareholders to dissent and obtain payment for their shares. Accordingly, unless the acquisition is a statutory merger, requiring shareholder approval, Retrospettiva will not provide shareholders with a disclosure document containing audited or unaudited financial statements, prior to such acquisition.
 

 4
 
 

 
Prior to any business combination for which shareholder approval is required, Retrospettiva intends to provide its shareholders complete disclosure documentation concerning the business opportunity or target company and its business. Such disclosure will in all likelihood be in the form of a proxy statement which will be distributed to shareholders at least 20 days prior to any shareholder meeting.

None of Retrospettiva's officers, directors, promoters, their affiliates or associates have had any preliminary contact or discussions with, and there are no present plans, proposals, arrangements or understandings with, any representatives of the owners of any business or company regarding the possibility of an acquisition or merger transaction contemplated in this report.

Not an "Investment Adviser"

Retrospettiva is not an "investment adviser" under the Federal Investment Advisers Act of 1940, which classification would involve a number of negative considerations. Accordingly, Retrospettiva will not furnish or distribute advice, counsel, publications, writings, analysis or reports to anyone relating to the purchase or sale of any securities within the language, meaning and intent of Section 2(a)(11) of the Investment Advisers Act (15 U.S.C. 80b2(a)(11)).

Not an "Investment Company"

Retrospettiva may become involved in a business opportunity through purchasing or exchanging the securities of such business. Retrospettiva does not intend, however, to engage primarily in such activities and is not registered as an "investment company" under the Federal Investment Company Act of 1940. Retrospettiva believes such registration is not required.

Retrospettiva must conduct its activities so as to avoid becoming inadvertently classified as a transient "investment company" under the Federal Investment Company Act, which classification would affect Retrospettiva adversely in a number of respects. Section 3(a) of the Investment Company Act provides the definition of an "investment company" which excludes an entity which does not engage primarily in the business of investing, reinvesting or trading in securities, or which does not engage in the business of investing, owning, holding or trading “investment securities" (defined as "all securities other than United States government securities or securities of majority-owned subsidiaries",) the value of which exceeds 40% of the value of its total assets (excluding government securities, cash or cash items). Retrospettiva intends to implement its business plan in a manner which will result in the availability of this exemption from the definition of "investment company." Retrospettiva proposes to engage solely in seeking an interest in one or more business opportunities or ventures.

Effective January 14, 1981, the SEC adopted Rule 3a-2 which deems that an issuer is not engaged in the business of investing, reinvesting, owning, holding or trading in securities for purposes of Section 3(a)(1) cited above if, during period of time not exceeding one year, the issuer has a bona fide intent to be engaged primarily, or as soon as reasonably possible (in any event by the termination of a one year period of time), in a business other than that of investing, reinvesting, owning, holding or trading in securities and such intent is evidenced by Retrospettiva's business activities and appropriate resolution of Retrospettiva's Board of Directors duly adopted and duly recorded in the minute book of Retrospettiva. The Rule 3a-2 "safe harbor" may not be relied on more than one single time.
 
Reports to Security Holders.
 
Retrospettiva is subject to reporting obligations under the Exchange Act. These obligations include an annual report under cover of Form 10-K, with audited financial statements, unaudited quarterly reports and the requisite proxy statements with regard to annual shareholder meetings. The public may read and copy any materials Retrospettiva files with the SEC at the SEC's Public Reference Room at 100 F Street, NE, Washington, DC 20549. The public may obtain information of the operation of the Public Reference Room by calling the SEC at 1-800-SEC-0030.The SEC maintains an Internet site (http://www.sec.gov) that contains reports, proxy and information statements and other information regarding issuers that file electronically with the SEC.

Holders
 
As of April 10, 2012, a total of 14,425,903 shares of our common stock were outstanding and there were approximately 72 holders of record.
 
Penny Stock Rules

Due to the price of our common stock, as well as the fact that we are not listed on Nasdaq or a national securities exchange, our stock is characterized as "penny stocks" under applicable securities regulations. Our stock will therefore be subject to rules adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regulating broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in penny stocks. The broker or dealer proposing to effect a transaction in a penny stock must furnish his customer a document containing information prescribed by the SEC and obtain from the customer an executed acknowledgment of receipt of that document. The broker or dealer must also provide the customer with pricing information regarding the security prior to the transaction and with the written confirmation of the transaction. The broker or dealer must also disclose the aggregate amount of any compensation received or receivable by him in connection with such transaction prior to consummating the transaction and with the written confirmation of the trade. The broker or dealer must also send an account statement to each customer for which he has executed a transaction in a penny stock each month in which such security is held for the customer's account. The existence of these rules may have an effect on the price of our stock, and the willingness of certain brokers to effect transactions in our stock.

Dividend Policy
 
We have never declared or paid dividends on our common stock. Payment of future dividends, if any, will be at the discretion of our Board of Directors after taking into account various factors, including the terms of any credit arrangements, our financial condition, operating results, current and anticipated cash needs and plans for expansion. At the present time, we intend to retain any earning in our business, and therefore do not anticipate paying dividends in the foreseeable future.

Not required.

ITEM 7.    MANAGEMENTS’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATION

Introduction

The following discussion updates our plan of operation for the next twelve months.  This discussion also analyzes our financial condition at December 31, 2011 and compares it to our financial condition at December 31, 2010.  This discussion summarizes the results of our operations for the year ended December 31, 2011 and compares those results to the year ended December 31, 2010.

Plan of Operation

Retrospettiva, Inc. (the "Company") was organized under the laws of the State of California in November, 1990.  Prior to 2002, our business was to manufacture and import textile products, including both finished garments and fabrics.  Our manufacturing facilities and inventories were primarily located in Europe.  Our European operations were based in and around Macedonia.  On July 2, 2001, we announced that the civil war in Macedonia rendered it impossible to continue operations.  We ceased operating and liquidated all of our assets.

On August 2, 2004, the Company was terminated, by administrative action of the State of California as a result of non-filing of required documents with the State of California.  Effective February 15, 2007, the Company reinstated it charter.

We have updated our affairs and become current in our various reporting obligations.  We intend to combine the Company with another entity in a merger, acquisition, or similar transaction and are seeking potential candidates.  Our plan is to evaluate prospects, structure a transaction, and ultimately combine with another entity.  We are unable, at this time, to predict when, if ever, our objectives will be achieved.

Capital Investment

We do not anticipate any significant capital expenditures for at least the next twelve months.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of December 31, 2011, we had a working capital deficit of $(228,859).  We had no current assets and current liabilities were $228,859.  This represents a $26,243 increase in the deficit from the working capital deficit of $(202,616) reported at December 31, 2010.  During the year ended December 31, 2011, our working capital deficit increased because of costs incurred to revive our business and to meet the ongoing reporting requirements for a public company.  These costs were funded by an increase in current liabilities.

On September 22, 2008, our stockholders approved an increase in authorized shares of no par value common stock from 15,000,000 shares to 100,000,000 shares.  The increase in the number of authorized shares of common stock may assist us in future financing and will provide sufficient authorized shares of common stock to permit conversion of our shares of preferred stock, and our convertible note payable into common stock.

We will need additional funding to achieve our ultimate goals.  We do not believe we are a candidate for conventional debt financing and in the past we have relied on loans and advances from stockholders to fund our operations; however we have no guarantee that our stockholders will be willing and able to fund all of our future financing needs.

We entered into a note payable agreement with one of our stockholders effective July 2, 2007.  The note provides for borrowings up to the principal amount of $64,871, is uncollateralized, and bears interest at an annual rate of 8%.  We issued 945,987 shares of our common stock as additional consideration for the loan agreement.  During 2007 we received proceeds of $64,871 under this agreement.  The original due date of June 30, 2008 was extended, and effective June 30, 2009, the stockholder agreed to modify the terms of the note to make it due on demand.

On November 14, 2007, we entered into a loan agreement with our President and a stockholder.  The principal maximum amount that can be borrowed under this agreement is $133,333.  The loan is due on demand, is uncollateralized, bears interest at 8% per annum, and is convertible into restricted common stock at $0.10 per share.  We issued 10,000,000 shares of common stock as additional consideration for the note payable.  As of December 31, 2011, we had borrowed $102,003 under this arrangement and the amount available for future borrowings was $31,330.

Our President has periodically advanced funds to us to meet our working capital needs.  As of December 31, 2011, we owe our President $6,934 for advances which are uncollateralized, non-interest bearing and due on demand.  During 2011 we incurred other obligations and liabilities which are reflected in the accompanying balance sheet as accounts payable and accrued liabilities.

Net cash used in operating activities was $15,195 during the year ended December 31, 2011, compared to $16,668 used during 2010.  For both years, all of our expenses were funded by related parties.
 
Results of Operations - Year Ended December 31, 2011 Compared to Year Ended December 31, 2010
 
We are considered a development stage company for accounting purposes, since we are working to revive the Company and to implement our plan of operations.  We are unable to predict with any degree of accuracy when this classification will change.  We expect to incur losses until such time, if ever, we begin generating revenue from operations.

For the year ended December 31, 2011, we recorded a net loss of $(26,243), or $nil per share, compared to a net loss for 2010 of $(33,853) or $nil per share.  In neither period did we report any revenue.
 
Operating expenses decreased to $12,607 for the year ended December 31, 2011, compared to $21,565 for 2010, a difference of $(8,958).  Accounting and auditing fees decreased by $5,414 during 2011 and investor relations expenses decreased by $3,216 Generally, the costs we incur are for meeting current reporting requirements for a public company.  There was no significant change in the nature of our activities during 2011, although we incurred some extra expense in connection with a proposed merger transaction that was not completed.
 
During 2011, we incurred interest expense of $12,837 related to the notes payable to stockholders, compared to $11,488 incurred in 2010.  Interest expense increased as the note balances increased from $151,680 reported at December 31, 2010, to $166,874 at December 31, 2011.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
 
 
 
 
 
Board of Directors and Shareholders    
Retrospettiva, Inc.
Los Angeles, California
 
 
We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Retrospettiva, Inc. as of December 31, 2011 and 2010 and the related statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ (deficit) and cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, and for the period from October 11, 2006 (commencement of development stage) to December 31, 2011. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based upon 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. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. 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 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 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 Retrospettiva, Inc. as of December 31, 2011 and 2010, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 and for the period from October 11, 2006 (commencement of development stage) to December 31, 2011, 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 described in Note 2, the Company has recurring losses, has negative working capital and has a total stockholder’s deficit, which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plan in regard to this matter is also discussed in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.

RETROSPETTIVA, INC.
(A Development Stage Company)
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2011

1.     Overview and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation:    Retrospettiva, Inc. (the "Company") was organized under the laws of the State of California in November, 1990 to manufacture and import textile products, including both finished garments and fabrics. The Company’s manufacturing facilities and inventories were primarily located in Europe.  The Company ceased operations in 2001 and has been inactive since 2002.  Effective August 2, 2004, the Company was terminated, by administrative action of the State of California as a result of non-filing of required documents with the State of California.  Effective February 15, 2007, the Company reinstated its charter.

Effective October 11, 2006 (commencement of the development stage) efforts commenced to revive the Company.  Legal counsel was hired to address litigation involving the Company and activities were undertaken to prepare and file delinquent tax and financial reports.  Furthermore, a financial judgment against the Company dating back to 2002 was addressed and a final settlement was reached in October, 2007.  The Company filed various delinquent reports to become current in its reporting obligations to the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and various taxing authorities.

The Company intends to evaluate, structure and complete a merger with, or acquisition of, prospects consisting of private companies, partnerships or sole proprietorships.  The Company may seek to acquire a controlling interest in such entities in contemplation of later completing an acquisition.

Development Stage Company:    Based on the Company’s business plan, it is a development stage company since planned principle operations have not yet commenced.  Accordingly, the Company presents its financial statements in conformity with the accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America that apply to developing enterprises.  As a development stage enterprise, the Company discloses its retained earnings (or deficit accumulated) during the development stage and the cumulative statements of operations and cash flows from commencement of development stage to the current balance sheet date.  The development stage began on October 11, 2006, when management commenced its efforts to revive the Company.

Revenue Recognition:    The Company has not generated any revenues since entering the development stage.  It is the Company’s policy that 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 collectability is reasonably assured.

Cash and Cash Equivalents:    The Company considers cash in banks, deposits in transit, and highly liquid debt instruments purchased with original maturities of three months or less to be cash and cash equivalents.

Stock Based Compensation:     The Company accounts for common stock issued to employees for services based on the fair value of the instruments issued, and accounts for common stock issued to other than employees based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instruments, whichever is more reliably measurable.
 

 17
 
 

 
The Company has no stock option plan and did not make any option grants during 2011 or 2010, and, accordingly, has not recognized any stock based compensation expense related to options.

Per Share Amounts:    Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during each period.  Diluted earnings (loss) per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if potentially dilutive securities are converted into common shares.  Potentially dilutive securities, such as stock options and warrants, are excluded from the calculation when their inclusion would be anti-dilutive, such as periods when a net loss is reported or when the exercise price of the instrument exceeds the fair market value.

Income Taxes:    Income taxes are computed using the liability method.  Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial and tax reporting purposes and the effect of net operating loss carry-forwards.  Deferred tax assets are evaluated to determine if it is more likely than not that they will be realized.  Valuation allowances have been established to reduce the carrying value of deferred tax assets in recognition of significant uncertainties regarding their ultimate realization.  Further, the evaluation has determined that there are no uncertain tax positions required to be disclosed.

Use of Estimates:    The preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Management routinely makes judgments and estimates about the effects of matters that are inherently uncertain.  Estimates that are critical to the accompanying financial statements include the identification and valuation of assets and liabilities, valuation of deferred tax assets, and the likelihood of loss contingencies.  Management bases its estimates and judgments on historical experience and on various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources.  Actual results could differ from these estimates.  Estimates and assumptions are revised periodically and the effects of revisions are reflected in the financial statements in the period it is determined to be necessary.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments:    ASC 825, “Disclosures About Fair Value of Financial Instruments”, requires disclosure of fair value information about financial instruments.  ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements” defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.  Fair value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management as of December 31, 2011 and 2010

The respective carrying values of certain on-balance-sheet financial instruments approximate their fair values.  These financial instruments include accounts payable, advances payable, accrued liabilities and notes payable.  Fair values were assumed to approximate carrying values for these financial instruments since they are short term in nature and their carrying amounts approximate fair value, or they are receivable or payable on demand.

Concentrations:    The Company is not currently a party to any financial instruments that potentially subject it to concentrations of credit risk.
 
Recently Issued Accounting Standards Updates.    The Company evaluates the pronouncements of various authoritative accounting organizations, primarily the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”), the SEC, and the Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”), to determine the impact of new pronouncements on US GAAP and the impact on the Company.

There were various accounting standards updates recently issued, most of which represented technical corrections to the accounting literature or were applicable to specific industries.  None of the recent updates are expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, operations, or cash flows.


2.     Going Concern

The Company's financial statements are prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of obligations in the normal course of business.  However, the Company has recurring losses, has negative working capital, and has a total stockholders’ deficit.  The Company does not currently have any revenue generating operations.  These conditions raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern.

In view of these matters, continuation as a going concern is dependent upon continued operations of the Company, which in turn is dependent upon the Company’s ability to meets its financial requirements, raise additional capital, and the success of its future operations.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments to the amount and classification of assets and liabilities that may be necessary should the Company not continue as a going concern.

Management has opted to file the Company’s periodic financial reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and to seek potential candidates for a merger, acquisition, or similar transaction.  Our plan is to evaluate prospects, structure a transaction, and ultimately combine with another entity.  Management believes that this plan provides an opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern.
3.     Income Taxes

Deferred income taxes arise from temporary timing differences in the recognition of income and expenses for financial reporting and tax purposes. The Company's deferred tax assets consist entirely of the benefit from net operating loss (NOL) carryforwards. The net operating loss carryforwards, if not used, will expire in various years through 2030, and are severely restricted as per the Internal Revenue code if there is a change in ownership. The Company's deferred tax assets are offset by a valuation allowance due to the uncertainty of the realization of the net operating loss carry forwards. Net operating loss carryforwards may be further limited by other provisions of the tax laws.

The Company's deferred tax assets, valuation allowance, and change in valuation allowance are as follows:

ITEM 9.    CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE
 
There were no changes in or disagreements with our accountants during the two years ended December 31, 2011.
 
ITEM 9A(T).    CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures. Our management, with the participation of our President, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on that evaluation, our President concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report were not effective such that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to our management, including our President, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure. A controls system cannot provide absolute assurance, however, that the objectives of the controls system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected.

As permitted by applicable SEC rules, this annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company's independent registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management's report, which is included below, was not subject to attestation by the Company's registered public accounting firm pursuant to rules applicable to smaller reporting companies that permit us to provide only management's report in this annual report.

(b) Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting.  During 2010, there were no changes in the Company's internal controls over financial reporting, known to the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer, that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.

Management's Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting.  Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act). Our internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

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 of achieving their control objectives. Furthermore, smaller reporting companies face additional limitations. Smaller reporting companies employ fewer individuals and find it difficult to properly segregate duties. Often, one or two individuals control every aspect of the Company's operation and are in a position to override any system of internal control. Additionally, smaller reporting companies tend to utilize general accounting software packages that lack a rigorous set of software controls.
 

 22
 
 

 
Our management, with the participation of the President, evaluated the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2011. In making this assessment, our management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control -- Integrated Framework. Based on this evaluation, our management, with the participation of the President, concluded that, as of December 31, 2011, our internal control over financial reporting was not effective due to material weaknesses in the system of internal control.

Specifically, management identified the following control deficiencies. (1) The Company has not properly segregated duties as one or two individuals initiate, authorize, and complete all transactions. The Company has not implemented measures that would prevent the individuals from overriding the internal control system. The Company does not believe that this control deficiency has resulted in deficient financial reporting because the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer is aware of his responsibilities under the SEC's reporting requirements and personally certifies the financial reports. (2) The Company has installed accounting software that does not prevent erroneous or unauthorized changes to previous reporting periods and does not provide an adequate audit trail of entries made in the accounting software. The Company does not think that this control deficiency has resulted in deficient financial reporting because the Company has implemented a series of manual checks and balances to verify that previous reporting periods have not been improperly modified and that no unauthorized entries have been made in the current reporting period.

Accordingly, while the Company has identified certain material weaknesses in its system of internal control over financial reporting, it believes that it has taken reasonable steps to ascertain that the financial information contained in this report is in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.  Management has determined that current resources would be appropriately applied elsewhere and when resources permit, they will alleviate material weaknesses through various steps.
