NOTE A—BUSINESS ACTIVITY

 

The Tryon Alpha, Inc., Inc. (“The Company”) was organized under the laws of the State of Nevada on December 3, 2007 as a corporation. The Company’s objective is to acquire or merge with a target business or company in a business combination.

 

 

NOTE B—GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which assumes the Company will realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business.  As reflected in the accompanying financial statements, the Company has a deficit accumulated during the development stage of $61,149, used cash from operations of $57,658 since its inception, and has a negative working capital of $61,049 at September 30, 2012.

 

The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate future profitable operations and/or to obtain the necessary financing to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due.  The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is also dependent on its ability to find a suitable target company and enter into a possible reverse merger with such company.  Management’s plan includes obtaining additional funds by equity financing through a reverse merger transaction and/or related party advances; however there is no assurance of additional funding being available.  These circumstances raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might arise as a result of this uncertainty.

 

 

NOTE C—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation- The financial statements included herein were prepared under the accrual basis of accounting.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents- For purposes of the Statement of Cash Flows, the Company considers liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

 

Management’s 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 financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The financial statements above reflect all of the costs of doing business.

 

Revenue Recognition- The Company applies paragraph 605-10-S99-1 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for revenue recognition. The Company recognizes revenue when it is realized or realizable and earned less estimated future doubtful accounts. The Company considers revenue realized or realizable and earned when all of the following criteria are met:

 

(i)persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists,
(ii)the services have been rendered and all required milestones achieved,
(iii)the sales price is fixed or determinable, and
(iv)collectability is reasonably assured.

  

Comprehensive Income (Loss) - The Company reports Comprehensive income and its components following guidance set forth by section 220-10 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification which establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive income and its components in the financial statements. There were no items of comprehensive income (loss) applicable to the Company during the years covered in the financial statements.

 

Net Income per Common Share- Net loss per common share is computed pursuant to section 260-10-45 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock and potentially outstanding shares of common stock during each period. There were no potentially dilutive shares outstanding as of September 30, 2012.

 

Deferred Taxes- The Company accounts for income taxes under Section 740-10-30 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined based upon differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance to the extent management concludes it is more likely than not that the assets will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in the statements of operations in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments- The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, accounts receivable and payable approximate fair value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments.

 

Accounts Receivable- Accounts deemed uncollectible are written off in the year they become uncollectible. As of September 30th, 2012 and 2011, the balance in Accounts Receivable was $0 and $0, respectively.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets- The Company evaluates the recoverability of its fixed assets and other assets in accordance with section 360-10-15 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for disclosures about Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets. Disclosure requires recognition of impairment of long-lived assets in the event the net book value of such assets exceeds its expected cash flows. If so, it is considered to be impaired and is written down to fair value, which is determined based on either discounted future cash flows or appraised values. The Company adopted the statement on inception. No impairments of these types of assets were recognized during the two years ended September 30, 2012.

 

Stock-Based Compensation- The Company accounts for stock-based compensation using the fair value method following the guidance set forth in section 718-10 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for disclosure about Stock-Based Compensation. This section requires a public entity to measure the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments based on the grant-date fair value of the award (with limited exceptions). That cost will be recognized over the period during which an employee is required to provide service in exchange for the award- the requisite service period (usually the vesting period). No compensation cost is recognized for equity instruments for which employees do not render the requisite service.

NOTE C—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES—CONT’D

 

Fair Value for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities- The Company follows paragraph 825-10-50-10 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for disclosures about fair value of its financial instruments and paragraph 820-10-35-37 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“Paragraph 820-10-35-37”) to measure the fair value of its financial instruments. Paragraph 820-10-35-37 establishes a framework for measuring fair value in accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (U.S. GAAP), and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. To increase consistency and comparability in fair value measurements and related disclosures, Paragraph 820-10-35-37 establishes a fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. The three levels of fair value hierarchy defined by Paragraph 820-10-35-37 are described below:

 

Level 1 Quoted market prices available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date.
   
Level 2 Pricing inputs other than quoted prices in active markets included in Level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reporting date.
   
Level 3 Pricing inputs that are generally observable inputs and not corroborated by market data.

 

The carrying amounts of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities, such as cash and accrued expenses, approximate their fair values because of the short maturity of these instruments. The Company’s note payable approximates the fair value of such instrument based upon management’s best estimate of interest rates that would be available to the Company for similar financial arrangement at September 30, 2012.

 

The Company does not have any assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring or a non-recurring basis, consequently, the Company did not have any fair value adjustments for assets and liabilities measured at fair value at September 30, 2012, nor gains or losses are reported in the statement of operations that are attributable to the change in unrealized gains or losses relating to those assets and liabilities still held at the reporting date for the six months ended September 30, 2012.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company has reviewed all recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements and does not believe the future adoption of any such pronouncements may be expected to cause a material impact on its consolidated financial condition or the consolidated results of its operations.

 

In May 2011, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-04, “Fair Value Measurements (Topic 820): Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs” (“ASU 2011-04”).  ASU 2011-04 changes the wording used to describe many of the requirements in U.S. GAAP for measuring fair value and for disclosing information about fair value measurements to ensure consistency between U.S. GAAP and IFRS. ASU 2011-04 also expands the disclosures for fair value measurements that are estimated using significant unobservable (Level 3) inputs. This new guidance is to be applied prospectively.  The Company anticipates that the adoption of this standard will not materially expand its financial statement note disclosures.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements (cont’d)

 

In June 2011, FASB issued ASU No. 2011-05, “Comprehensive Income (ASC Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income” (“ASU 2011-05”), which amends current comprehensive income guidance.  This accounting update eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of shareholders’ equity.  Instead, the Company must report comprehensive income in either a single continuous statement of comprehensive income which contains two sections, net income and other comprehensive income, or in two separate but consecutive statements.  ASU 2011-05 will be effective for public companies during the interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011, with early adoption permitted.  The Company is reviewing ASU 2011-05 to ascertain its impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows as it only requires a change in the format of the current presentation.

 

In September 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-08 which provides an entity the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is necessary to perform the current two-step test for goodwill impairment.  If an entity believes, as a result of its qualitative assessment, that it is more-likely-than-not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, the quantitative impairment test is required.  Otherwise, no further testing is required. The revised standard is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011.   We do not expect that the adoption of this standard will have a material impact on our results of operations, cash flows or financial condition.

In December 2011, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2011-11, “Balance Sheet - Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities” to enhance disclosure requirements relating to the offsetting of assets and liabilities on an entity's balance sheet. The update requires enhanced disclosures regarding assets and liabilities that are presented net or gross in the statement of financial position when the right of offset exists, or that are subject to an enforceable master netting arrangement. The new disclosure requirements relating to this update are retrospective and effective for annual and interim periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013. The update only requires additional disclosures, as such, we do not expect that the adoption of this standard will have a material impact on our results of operations, cash flows or financial condition.

ASU 2012-02 allows companies the option to first assess qualitatively whether it is more likely than not that an indefinite-lived intangible asset is impaired, before determining whether it is necessary to perform the quantitative impairment test. An entity is not required to calculate the fair value of an indefinite-lived intangible asset and perform the quantitative impairment test unless the entity determines that it is more likely than not that the asset is impaired. Companies can choose to perform the qualitative assessment on none, some, or all of its indefinite-lived intangible assets or choose to only perform the quantitative impairment test for any indefinite-lived intangible in any period.

ASU 2012-02 is effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012, with early adoption permitted. The Company is in the process of evaluating the guidance and the impact ASU 2012-02 will have on its consolidated financial statements.

NOTE D-SUPPLEMENTAL CASH FLOW INFORMATION

 

Supplemental disclosures of cash flow information for the six months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 is summarized as follows:

 

Cash paid during the six months ended September, 2012 and 2011 for interest and income taxes:

 

      2012    2011 
 Interest   $—     $—   
 Taxes   $—     $—   

 

 

NOTE E-SEGMENT REPORTING

  

The Company follows the guidance set forth by section 280-10 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for reporting and disclosure on operating segments of the Company. It also requires segment disclosures about products and services, geographic areas, and major customers. The Company determined that it did not have any separately reportable operating segments as of September 30, 2012.

 

NOTE F—CAPITAL STOCK

 

The Company is authorized to issue 100,000,000 common shares at $.0001 par value per share.

 

On August 28, 2012, 1,350,000 shares of common stock were returned to the Company and canceled. On the same day, the Company issued 850,000 shares of common stock at a price equal to the par value per share.

 

As of September 30, 2012, the Company had the following common shares outstanding:

 

   Number of Shares
Ange Properties, LLC   400,000 
Garvin Strategic Capital, LLC   200,000 
Gideon Atlantic LC   200,000 
Ange Capital LLC   200,000 
    1,000,000 

 

As of September 30, 2012, the Company has not issued any preferred shares of stock.

 

 

NOTE G – DEVELOPMENT STAGE COMPANY

 

The Company is in the development stage as of September 30, 2012 and to date has had no significant operations. Recovery of the Company’s assets is dependent on future events, the outcome of which is indeterminable. In addition, successful completion of the Company’s development program and its transition, ultimately, to attaining profitable operations is dependent upon obtaining adequate financing to fulfill its development activities and achieving a level of sales adequate to support the Company’s cost structure.

 

 

NOTE H—SHAREHOLDER LOAN/RELATED PARTY

 

During the six months ended September 30, 2012, the shareholders of the Company paid an aggregate of $14,027 on the Company’s behalf to cover costs and expenses incurred by the Company. As a result, the payable due to shareholder is $48,408 and $33,880 as of September 30, 2012 and March 31, 2012, respectively.

 

The Company has an outstanding Note Payable with a related party. The amount of the loan is $9,150 and it is payable on demand. The annual interest rate on the note is 8%.

 

Accrued interest not paid for the period from inception (December 3, 2007) through September 30, 2012 was $3,477.

 

The Company utilizes office space provided free of charge by Mr. Cauley. The Company will continue to maintain its offices at this location until the consummation of a Business Combination, if ever. The effects of rent expense are immaterial to the financial statements taken as a whole.

 

 

NOTE I—INCOME TAXES

 

Due to the operating loss and the inability to recognize an income tax benefit, there is no provision for current or deferred federal or state income taxes for the period from inception through September 30, 2012.

 

Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amount used for federal and state income tax purposes.

 

The Company’s total deferred tax asset, calculated using federal and state effective tax rates, as of September 30, 2012 is as follows:

 

Total Deferred Tax Asset  $(20,750)
Valuation Allowance   20,750 
Net Deferred Tax Asset  $—   

 

The reconciliation of income taxes computed at the federal statutory income tax rate to total income taxes for the years ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 is as follows:

 

    2011    2010 
Income tax computed at the federal statutory rate   34.0%   34.0%
State income tax, net of federal tax benefit   0.0%   0.0%
Total   34.0%   34.0%
Valuation allowance   -34.0%   -34.0%
Total deferred tax asset   0.0%   0.0%

 

Because of the Company’s lack of earnings history, the deferred tax asset has been fully offset by a valuation allowance. The valuation allowance increased (decreased) by approximately $4,220 and $1,860 in the six months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

 

As of September 30, 2012, the Company had a federal and state net operating loss carry forward in the amount of approximately $61,049 which expires in the year 2032.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

Overview

 

Statements, other than historical facts, contained in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including statements of potential acquisitions and our strategies, plans and objectives, are "forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Although we believe that our forward looking statements are based on reasonable assumptions, we caution that such statements are subject to a wide range of risks, trends and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those projected. Among those risks, trends and uncertainties are important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward looking statements, including, but not limited to; the time management devotes to identifying a target business; management’s ability to consummate a business combination; the financial condition of the target company with which we may enter a business combination; the effect of existing and future laws; governmental regulations; the political and economic climate of the United States; and conditions in the capital markets. We undertake no duty to update or revise these forward-looking statements.

 

When used in this Form 10-Q, the words, "expect," "anticipate," "intend," "plan," "believe," "seek," "estimate" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain these identifying words.  Because these forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, actual results could differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements for a number of important reasons.

 

Overview

 

Tryon Alpha, Inc. (“we”, “us” or the “Company”) was organized in the State of Nevada on December 3, 2007. We are a developmental stage company and have not generated any revenues to date. We were organized to serve as a vehicle for a business combination through a capital stock exchange, merger, reverse acquisition, asset acquisition or other similar business combination (a “Business Combination”) with an operating or development stage business (the “Target”) which desires to utilize our status as a reporting company under the Exchange Act.

 

The Company voluntarily filed a registration statement on Form 10 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) on March 20, 2008, and since its effectiveness, the Company has focused its efforts on identifying a possible Target for a Business Combination.  We are not presently engaged in, and will not engage in, any substantive commercial business operations unless and until we consummate a Business Combination.  Our fiscal year ends on March 31.

 

Based on our business activities, the Company is a “shell company” as defined under the Exchange Act because we have no operations and nominal assets consisting solely of cash and/or cash equivalents. Because we are a “shell” company, the Business Combination we enter into with a Target will be deemed to be a “reverse acquisition” or “reverse merger.” We are also a “blank check” company as defined under the Exchange Act because we are a development stage company that is issuing a “penny stock” (as defined under the Exchange Act) and have no specific business plan or purpose other than to merge with an unidentified company or companies. Many states have enacted statutes, rules and regulations limiting the sale of securities of blank check companies in their respective jurisdictions.

 

Our management has broad discretion with respect to identifying and selecting a prospective Target. We have not established any specific attributes or criteria (financial or otherwise) for a prospective Target and may enter into a Business Combination with a development stage company, a distressed company or a foreign company engaged in any industry. Our sole officer and director has never served as an officer or director of a development stage public company that has consummated a Business Combination such as that contemplated by our Company. Accordingly, he may not successfully identify a Target or conclude a Business Combination. In addition, our management engages in other business activities and is not obligated to devote any specific number of hours to our matters. Management intends to devote only as much time as it deems necessary to our affairs.

 

We cannot assure you that we will be successful in concluding a Business Combination. We will not realize any revenues or generate any income unless and until we successfully merge with or acquire an operating business that is generating revenues and otherwise is operating profitably. Moreover, we can offer no guarantee that the Company will achieve long-term or immediate short-term earnings from any Business Combination.

 

Any entity with which we enter into a Business Combination will be subject to numerous risks in connection with its operations. To the extent we affect a Business Combination with a financially unstable company or an entity in its early stage of development or growth, including entities without established records of sales or earnings, we may be affected by numerous risks inherent in the business and operations of such companies. If we consummate a Business Combination with a foreign entity, we will be subject to all of the risks attendant to foreign operations. Although our management will endeavor to evaluate the risks inherent in a particular Target, we cannot assure you that we will properly ascertain or assess all significant risk factors.

 

We expect that in connection with any Business Combination, we will issue a significant number of shares of our common stock (equal to at least 80% of the total number of shares outstanding after giving effect to the transaction and likely, a significantly higher percentage) in order to ensure that the Business Combination qualifies as a “tax free” transaction under federal tax laws. The issuance of additional shares of our capital stock will significantly reduce the equity interest of our stockholders prior to the transaction and cause a change in control in our Company and likely result in the resignation or removal of our officer and director as of the date of the transaction.

 

Our management anticipates that our Company likely will affect only one Business Combination, due primarily to our limited financial resources and the dilution of interest for present and prospective stockholders, which is likely to occur as a result of our management's plan to offer a controlling interest to a Target in order to achieve a tax-free reorganization. This lack of diversification should be considered a substantial risk in investing in us because it will not permit us to offset potential losses from one venture against potential gains from another.

 

The Company currently does not engage in any business activities that provide cash flow. During the next twelve months we anticipate incurring costs related to filing periodic reports under the Exchange Act, investigating and analyzing Targets and, possibly, consummating a Business Combination. Our current assets will not be sufficient for these purposes; however, we believe we will be able to meet these costs from cash which may be loaned to or invested in us by our stockholders, management or other investors. It is unlikely that we will be able to secure third party funding for our operations and we cannot be certain that the Company will be able to secure additional funding as needed. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to generate cash from the sale of our common stock and/or obtain debt financing and attain future profitable operations by acquiring or merging with a profitable company.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At September 30, 2012, we had no assets. This compares with total assets of $26 at March 31, 2012 our fiscal year end. At September 30, 2012, the Company had current liabilities of $61,049 compared with current liabilities of $48,650 at March 31, 2012, in each case, comprised exclusively of amounts owed to our current stockholder and a former stockholder.

 

Our existing cash reserves will not be sufficient to cover our operating costs and expenses over the next twelve months.

 

To date, we have funded our operations through loans from our stockholders. Our stockholders have advised management orally that they presently expect to fund additional costs and expenses we may incur through loans or further investment in the Company, as and when necessary. However, our stockholders are under no obligation to provide such funding.

 

The following is a summary of the Company's cash flows provided by (used in) operating, investing, and financing activities:

Net Increase (Decrease) in Cash and Cash Equivalents $(26)  $—     $—   

 

 

We do not expect to engage in any substantive activities unless and until such time as we enter into a Business Combination with a Target, if ever. We cannot provide investors with any assurance that we will have sufficient capital resources to fund our operations and realize our business objectives.

 

Results of Operations

 

Since our inception, we have not engaged in any substantive operations, other than seeking to identify a Target, nor have we generated any revenues. We reported a net loss for the three and six months ended September 30, 2012 of $8,437 and $12,425, respectively, compared to a net loss of $1,716 and $5,490, for the comparable 2011 periods, and have suffered a net loss since inception of $61,149. At September 30, 2012, we had a working capital deficit of $61,049 compared to a working capital deficit of $48,624 at March 31, 2012. Since our inception, our operating expenses have principally comprised professional fees and expenses incurred in connection with the filing of reports under the Exchange Act, as well as interest accrued on loans from one of our stockholders.

 

We do not expect to engage in any activities, other than seeking to identify a Target, unless and until such time as we enter into a Business Combination with a Target, if ever. We cannot provide investors with any assessment as to the nature of a Target’s operations or speculate as to the status of its products or operations, whether at the time of the Business Combination it will be generating revenues or its future prospects.

 

Going Concern

 

Our negative working capital, continuing operating losses, failure to generate revenues and lack of operating capital create substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on its ability to obtain capital from our affiliates to fund our operations, generate cash from the sale of its securities and attain future profitable operations. Management’s plans include selling its equity securities and obtaining debt financing to fund its capital requirement and ongoing operations; however, there can be no assurance the Company will be successful in these efforts.

Item 4(T). Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As of September 30, 2012, the Company’s management performed an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, who is the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer and who we refer to herein as our PEO, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the Exchange Act), pursuant to Exchange Act Rule 13a-15. As a result of our continuing efforts to remediate the material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting that existed as of December 31, 2011 and which remained extant as of the close of the period covered by this Report, our PEO concluded that the Company's disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of September 30, 2012.

 

The weaknesses in our disclosure and procedures encompassed weaknesses in certain elements of our internal control over financial reporting (ICFR) that our subsumed within our disclosure controls and procedures. A material weakness is defined in Section 210.1-02(4) of Regulation S-X as a deficiency, or combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. The specific weaknesses relate to elements of our ICFR that provide reasonable assurances that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit the preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and comprise the following:

 

1. We did not maintain effective controls over the control environment.
2. We did not maintain effective controls over financial statement disclosure.
3. We did not maintain effective controls over financial reporting.
4. There existed a lack of segregation of duties in regard to the Company’s financial reporting, procedures for depositing of funds, procedures for cash disbursements, procedures for checkbook entries, period close procedures, and procedures for financial statement preparation, because we have only one officer who is responsible for all such duties.

 

We believe that the weaknesses in our disclosure controls and procedures and ICFR are a direct consequence of our size, resource constraints and the nature of our business. We are a “shell company,” as defined under the Securities Act, in that we have no operations and nominal assets. Further, we have no full-time employees. As a result, we are constrained by our lack of resources to take the types of corrective actions that would be necessary to remediate the material weaknesses, including, for example, engaging additional accounting personnel and adopting an audit committee charter and seating an audit committee with at least one independent member who qualifies as an audit committee financial expert as defined in Item 407(d)(5)(ii) of Regulation S-K

 

Changes in Internal Controls

 

There have been no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the Exchange Act) during the three months ended September 30, 2012 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.
