NOTE 10 - ACCOUNTING FOR STOCK BASED COMPENSATION.

The Company applies FASB ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation (FASB ASC 718) and FASB ASC 505, Equity (FASB ASC 505), using the modified prospective method of implementation, whereby the prospective method records the compensation expense from the implementation date forward, however, it leaves prior periods unchanged in accounting for its stock options.  At December 31, 2011, the Company has implemented five shareholder approved stock option plans.  These plans are intended to comply with Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.  The plans collectively provide for the total issuance of 3,600,000 common shares over ten years from the date of each plan’s approval.  In addition, the plans allow for additional increases of 15% of the then outstanding shares.  Effective January 1, 2012, the plans were increased by an additional 3,000,000 common shares over ten years allowing for additional increases of 15% of the then outstanding shares by unanimous approval of the Board of Directors.

Transactions under the stock option plans are summarized below. At September 30, 2012, a total of 3,336,910 options were outstanding under these plans.

The fair value of options granted during the nine month period ended September 30, 2012, was approximately $73,383; with 32,500 options vested upon grant and 1,500,000 vesting during term of employment.

The aggregate intrinsic value represents the value of the Company’s closing stock price of $0.60 on the last trading day of the period in excess of the exercise price multiplied by the number of options outstanding or exercisable. The total intrinsic value of options exercised during 2012 was $0, as no options were exercised. Total unrecognized stock-based compensation expense related to non-vested stock options was approximately $96,809 as of September 30, 2012, related to approximately 212,500 shares with a per share weighted average fair value of  $0.46. We anticipate this expense to be recognized over a weighted average period of approximately 2.5 years.
