  EXPLANATORY NOTE
 
Snap Interactive, Inc. (together with its subsidiaries, “we,” “us,” the “Company” or “Snap Interactive”) is filing this Amendment No. 1 to Annual Report on Form 10-K/A (this “Amendment”) to amend and restate its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011, originally filed on March 30, 2012 (the “Original Filing”).  For the convenience of the reader, this Amendment sets forth the Original Filing in its entirety, as amended by the Amendment. However, this Amendment is being filed to (i) amend the disclosure contained in Item 1A. Risk Factors, (ii) amend the disclosure in Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, (iii) amend and restate the consolidated financial statements and related disclosure in Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data, (iv) amend and restate management’s report on internal control of financial reporting and the disclosure contained in Item 9A. Controls and Procedures and (v) amend the disclosure contained in Item 15. Exhibits and Financial Statements.  In addition, as required by Rule 12b-15 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), new certifications by the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer are filed as exhibits to this Amendment.

This Amendment is being filed to properly account for certain features of the Company’s common stock warrants that were issued in January 2011 in connection with an equity financing.  The Company has determined that, as prescribed under Accounting Standards Codification 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity, these warrants should have been classified as liabilities on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets because, according to the warrants’ terms, a fundamental transaction could give rise to an obligation of the Company to pay cash to its warrant holders.  The proper accounting for this warrant liability requires the liability to be recorded at fair value on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets, with corresponding changes in fair value to be recognized in earnings on the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Operations in each subsequent period.

For additional information regarding this restatement, see “Note 12. Restatement of Consolidated Financial Statements” in the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements contained in Item 8 of Part II. Item 1A of Part I, Item 7 of Part II and Item 15 of Part IV are being amended solely to make conforming changes related to the restatement.  Item 9A of Part II is being amended to amend and restate management's report on internal control our financial reporting and to disclose management’s conclusions regarding the ineffectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures.

Except for the information described above, this Amendment does not reflect events occurring after the filing of the Original Filing and unless otherwise stated herein, the information contained in the Amendment is current only as of the time of the Original Filing.  Except as described above, no other changes have been made to the Original Filing.  Accordingly, the Amendment should be read in conjunction with the Company’s filings made with the Securities and Exchange Commission subsequent to the filing of the Original Filing.

reliance on our chief executive officer and sole director;
  
our dependence on a single vendor to host the majority of our application traffic;

the increased governmental regulation of the online dating, social networking or Internet industries;
  
our ability to protect our intellectual property;
  
the potential impact of a finding that we have infringed on intellectual property rights of others;
  
the effect of programming errors or flaws in our products;
  
the effect of security breaches, computer viruses and computer hacking attacks;
  
our limited insurance coverage and the risk of uninsured claims;

other circumstances that could disrupt the functioning of our application and website.
 
For a more detailed discussion of these and other factors that may affect our business, see Item 1A, “Risk Factors,” and Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.” We caution that the foregoing list of factors is not exclusive, and new factors may emerge, or changes to the foregoing factors may occur, that could impact our business. We do not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statement, whether written or oral, relating to the matters discussed in this Amendment No. 1 to Annual Report on Form 10-K/A, except to the extent required by federal securities laws.

 
 

 
 
 
Item 1.
 
In this Annual Report on Form 10-K, references to “we,” “our,” “us,” the “Company,” or “Snap Interactive” refer to Snap Interactive, Inc. and its subsidiaries on a consolidated basis.

General

We develop, own and operate a dating and social networking software application under the AreYouInterested.com brand that can be accessed on Facebook®, mobile devices such as iPhone® and Android®, as well as a stand-alone website. We primarily generate revenue from subscription fees and, as of March 22, 2012, we had approximately 145,000 active subscribers. We consider a subscriber to be “active” if he or she has pre-paid for current access to premium features and the term of the subscriber’s subscription period has not yet expired. The number of our daily and monthly active users as publicly reported by AppData®, which includes non-paying users and paying subscribers, varies greatly on a daily and monthly basis, respectively, and is much greater than the number of our active subscribers for the same measurement period.
 
We were incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on July 19, 2005. Our principal executive office is located at 462 7th Ave, 4th Floor, New York, New York 10018.  Our telephone number is (212) 594-5050.

Our Product

We have developed and published a dating and social networking application that is designed to appeal to a broad section of Internet and iPhone users.
 
Since August 2007, AreYouInterested.com has consistently been one of the leading dating applications on Facebook based on: (i) number of daily active users, (ii) number of monthly active users, as well as (iii) number of net installations (“installs”).  AreYouInterested.com users create a personal profile by entering search criteria concerning potential matches.  Users are able to view pictures of other users meeting that criteria and indicate if they are “interested” in a user by clicking on a “yes” button above the picture of that user.  We notify users when there is a mutually interested match. In addition, once users become paid subscribers, they are able to communicate on an unlimited basis with potential matches.  Until recently, we also earned revenue from AreYouInterested.com through the direct sale of “points.”  Users could either purchase or earn points by performing various activities on the product, such as by browsing profiles, that could be used in exchange for purchasing virtual gifts on the application and accessing certain other premium features on our application.  In February 2012, we discontinued the sale of points and decided to focus solely on subscription and advertising revenues. We continue to allow users to utilize points and exchange virtual gifts that were previously purchased through the sale of points. 
 
Product Development

We rely upon application development processes that are designed to enable us to rapidly and cost effectively develop our application to meet the expectations and preferences of consumers and the requirements of the third party platforms on which we offer our product. Because the markets for our application are characterized by rapid technological change, particularly in the technical capabilities of mobile phones and changing end-user preferences, continuous investment is required to innovate and to regularly update our dating and social networking application and our stand-alone website. As of December 31, 2011, we did not have any employees that were dedicated solely to product development activities for new applications.

We have expanded our original AreYouInterested.com brand to provide multiple gateways to access the product.  Users can access the AreYouInterested.com application on Facebook, our stand-alone website at AreYouInterested.com, and through iPhone and Android mobile apps and our mobile website.  Our product is fully integrated across all gateways and incorporates the Facebook Connect integration, which allows users to “connect” their Facebook identity and friends to any website.

We announced in February 2012 that we are focusing on rebuilding the AreYouInterested.com brand around interest-based matching and social discovery.  With our network of more than 58 million net installs as of March 22, 2012 of the AreYouInterested.com application on Facebook platform alone, along with the overwhelming amount of data that we have accumulated for several years across multiple platforms, we believe that leveraging this net install base and data therefrom in conjunction with Facebook platform’s real-time application programming interface allows us to create a one-of-a-kind experience for users looking to meet people with similar interests. When reporting net installations, we include the number of users that have downloaded and installed our application and exclude users that have chosen to uninstall our application.  While these installs do not represent the number of paying subscribers, we believe that our user base resulting therefrom would be prohibitively expensive to replicate through traffic acquisition alone for even well-funded start-up Facebook dating applications, creating a significant obstacle to attracting new users and generating significant revenue.

Marketing Strategy

Our initial user base on the AreYouInterested.com platform was cultivated primarily through Facebook’s viral channels.  In conjunction with the launch of our subscription-based revenue model in late 2009, we increased expenditures in advertising and marketing for the purpose of acquiring users.  In 2010, we began investing in our infrastructure in order to implement and monitor our user acquisition campaigns. We hired a full-time media buyer, developed in-house tools to track and measure the success of our advertising campaigns.  We have since steadily increased our marketing expenditures as we developed the tools to analyze the success of our campaigns. We primarily advertise through Internet and mobile advertising and run hundreds of campaigns at any given time, targeting various classifications of users. We expect to continue increasing our marketing expenditures in 2012 with a focus on campaigns that we believe will produce a positive return over the lifetime of new users.

Expanding our presence on mobile platforms is currently a core objective for us. Although revenue opportunities on our mobile products are still in their early stages, we are investing heavily in engineering and user acquisition on our mobile products while we continue to develop such products and user acquisition costs are inexpensive. We believe that our mobile dating and social discovery application will offer significant opportunities in the future and have increased the resources allocated to this product with the goal of positioning us as a leading provider of our product. A primary component of our mobile initiatives is to continue creating a seamless experience for users of our product across multiple platforms.  We believe that this approach will better position us to be a leading provider of mobile dating services in the future as web browsing and web activity shifts to smart phones and other mobile devices. As a result of these efforts, we are starting to see meaningful traction with our mobile product line, as nearly 15% of logins in February 2012 to AreYouInterested.com were made through a mobile device.

We believe we provide value to the third party platforms on which we operate by creating an application and website that create and maintain user engagement on, and integrate with, the platforms, driving traffic to the platforms to generate advertising revenue for such platforms, including through the placement of advertisements on our application pages, and by directly purchasing advertising from the platforms.

Payment Options

Our users have a variety of methods by which to purchase subscriptions to AreYouInterested.com.  Users can pay by credit card, Paypal, Boku (a mobile payment provider) or as an In-App purchase through Apple Inc.’s iPhone App Store.  Pursuant to Apple Inc.’s terms of service, Apple Inc. retains 30% of the revenue that is generated from sales on our iPhone application through In-App purchases in the United States.  Regardless of which payment method is utilized, users may access the AreYouInterested.com product through any of the gateways we offer.
 
Competition
 
We face substantial competition from dominant online dating websites such as Match.com and eHarmony.com, as well as Facebook application providers in the online dating space such as Zoosk, Badoo and Cupid.  We believe that users often utilize multiple dating websites or applications, and the use of one dating website or application is not necessarily to the exclusion of others.  According to AppData.com, a website that measures user engagement with Facebook applications, we are consistently one of the leading dating applications as measured by monthly active users. 

Achieving a critical mass of subscribers is crucial for online dating websites and online dating applications.  As a result of our user base, we believe we are well-positioned to continue as a leader in the online dating application market.  We believe that our user base also allows us to compete favorably in the marketplace with future products that we may offer.  Additionally, we hope to offset any advantages held by competitors with larger user bases by offering products and services that are unique in the industry, superior in quality, and more appealing than those of our competitors. Additionally, we believe that we have the tools and certain inherent efficiencies to attract new users through Facebook at a lower cost per subscriber than certain of our traditional online dating site competitors.  We also believe that the industry offers substantial room for growth as social networking application platforms and mobile platforms continue to expand and as the Internet continues to become more of a socially-acceptable method for finding a mate.
 
Patent and Trademarks
 
We have three registered trademarks relating to the AreYouInterested.com brand and two registered trademarks for Snap Interactive, Inc.  We are currently pursuing patents related to certain feature sets on the AreYouInterested.com brand currently under development.

Discontinued Product

We periodically evaluate applications and websites that we create for their strategic fit within our business plan and operations.  In February 2012, we announced the strategic decision to indefinitely suspend production and development of the WhoIsNear.com brand.  WhoIsNear.com was a location-based service that enabled users to easily access their online social graph, including the network of friends and contacts created on the Facebook platform.

Governmental Regulations
 
We are subject to a number of U.S. federal and states laws and regulations that affect companies conducting business on the Internet, many of which are still evolving and being litigated in the courts, and could be interpreted in ways that could harm our business.  These laws and regulations may involve user privacy, data protection, content, intellectual property, distribution, electronic contracts and other communications, competition, protection of minors, consumer protection, taxation and online payment services.

We are also subject to federal laws and regulations regarding privacy and the protection of user data, including The Communications Decency Act of 1996, The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 and The Electronic Communications Privacy Act of 1986, among others. If we were to violate any of these laws, we could be exposed to costly or time-consuming litigation or it could have an adverse effect on our current or future operations.

There are a number of proposals before Congress and various state legislatures regarding privacy issues related to the Internet generally. We are unable to determine if and when such legislation may be adopted. If certain proposals were to be adopted, it could have an adverse effect on our current or future operations.

In addition, certain states have enacted legislation requiring us to display safety warnings and disclosures to users that we do not conduct background checks.

Employees
 
As of March 15, 2012, we had 37  employees, all of whom are employed on a full-time basis. We believe that our future success depends in part on our continued ability to hire, assimilate and retain qualified personnel.

Item 1A.

Investing in our common stock involves a high degree of risk. The risks below are those that we believe are the material risks that we currently face, but are not the only risks facing us and our business. If any of the events contemplated by the following discussion should occur, our business, financial condition and operating results could be adversely affected, and you could lose all or part of your investment.

Risks Relating to Our Business

Our heavy reliance on Facebook may negatively affect our business.

Facebook is the primary third-party platform on which our application operates.  During 2011, we generated substantially all of our revenue from subscribers acquired through the Facebook platform and expect to continue to do so in the foreseeable future.

We are subject to Facebook’s standard terms and conditions for application developers, which govern the development, promotion, distribution, operation and use of our application on the Facebook platform. Accordingly, we are subject to the following risks and uncertainties:

  
Facebook discontinues, limits or restricts access to its platform by us or our application;
 
 
4

 
 
  
Facebook changes its terms and conditions or other policies and features, including restricting the methods of collecting payments through the Facebook platform; or

  
Facebook establishes more favorable relationships with one or more of our competitors.

If any of these actions occur or are taken against our application, they could have a material adverse effect on our business or results of operations.

We derive a portion of our revenue from the Apple and Google platforms, and if we are unable to maintain a good relationship with each of Apple and Google, our business could suffer.

A portion of our revenue is derived from Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android platforms and we believe that we have a good relationship with both Apple and Google.  Any deterioration in our relationship with either Apple or Google could materially harm our business and cause our stock price to decline.

We are subject to each of Apple’s and Google’s standard terms and conditions for application developers, which govern the promotion, distribution and operation of our application on their respective storefronts. Each of Apple and Google has broad discretion to change its standard terms and conditions.  In addition, these standard terms and conditions can be vague and subject to changing interpretations by Apple or Google.  In addition, each of Apple and Google has the right to prohibit a developer from distributing applications on the storefront if the developer violates the standard terms and conditions.  In the event that either Apple or Google ever determines that we are in violation of its standard terms and conditions, including by a new interpretation, and prohibits us from distributing our application on its storefront, it could materially harm our business and cause our stock price to decline.

We also rely on the continued function of the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store, as a portion of our revenue is derived from these two digital storefronts. There have been occasions in the past when these digital storefronts were unavailable for short periods of time or where there have been issues with the in-app purchasing functionality from the storefront. In the event that either the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store is unavailable or if in-app purchasing functionality from the storefront is non-operational for a prolonged period of time, it could have a material adverse effect on our revenues and operating results.

We rely on a small portion of our total users for nearly all of our revenue.
 
Compared to all persons who use our application in any period, only a small portion are paying subscribers. We primarily generate revenue through subscription sales to this small portion of our users and secondarily generate revenue through paid advertisements displayed to all users.  We lose users in the ordinary course of business. In order to sustain our revenue levels, we must attract, retain and increase the number of users or more effectively monetize our users. To retain users, and particularly those users who are paying subscribers, we must devote significant resources so that our application retains their interest. If we fail to grow or sustain the number of our users, or if the rates at which we attract and retain users declines or the rate at which users become paying subscribers declines, our business may not grow and our financial results will suffer.

Our business depends on establishing and maintaining a strong brand.  If we are unable to maintain and enhance our brand, we may be unable to expand or maintain our user and paying subscriber bases.
 
Establishing and maintaining our brand is critical to our efforts to attract and expand our user and paying subscriber bases. We believe that the importance of brand recognition will continue to increase, given the growing number of Internet sites and few barriers to entry for companies offering online dating services.  We recently announced plans to rebuild the AreYouInterested.com brand around interest-based matching and social discovery to attract and retain users and paying subscribers.  This rebuilding of the AreYouInterested.com brand may not be successful.  If paying subscribers to our products do not perceive our existing services to be of high quality, or if new services, new business ventures or the rebuilding of the AreYouInterested.com brand are not favorably received by such parties, the value of our brand could be diluted, thereby decreasing the attractiveness of our product to such parties. As a result, our results of operations may be adversely affected by decreased brand recognition.

As an online dating company, we are in an intensely competitive industry and any failure to timely implement our business plan could diminish or suspend our development and possibly cease our operations.
 
The online dating industry is highly competitive, and has few barriers to entry. Additional competitors may enter the online dating industry. There are numerous other companies that offer similar services, have established user bases that are similar in size or larger than ours, and have more capital than us. If we are unable to efficiently and effectively institute our business plan as a result of intense competition or a saturated market, we may not be able to continue the development and enhancement of our application and website or become profitable on a consistent basis.

Our competitors could develop more efficient products or undertake more aggressive and costly marketing campaigns than ours, which may adversely affect our marketing strategies and could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

 Important factors affecting our ability to compete successfully include:

  
Our ability to hire and retain talented employees, including technical employees, executives, and marketing experts;

  
Competition for acquiring users that could result in increased user acquisition costs;

  
Reliance upon the platforms on which we build and the platforms’ ability to control our activities on such platforms; and

  
Our ability to remain innovative in our fast-changing industry.
 
We face substantial competition from dominant online dating websites such as Match.com and eHarmony.com, as well as Facebook application providers in the online dating space such as Zoosk, Badoo and Cupid.  According to AppData.com, a website that measures user engagement with Facebook application, we are consistently one of the leading dating applications as measured by monthly active users. 

Many of our current and potential competitors have longer operating histories, significantly greater financial, technical, marketing and other resources and larger customer bases than we do. These factors may allow our competitors to respond more quickly than we can to new or emerging technologies and changes in user preferences. These competitors may engage in more extensive research and development efforts, undertake more far-reaching marketing campaigns and adopt more aggressive pricing policies that may allow them to build larger user and paying subscriber bases than ours. Our competitors may develop products or services that are equal or superior to our products and services or that achieve greater market acceptance than our products and services. These activities could attract users and paying subscribers away from our application and website and reduce our market share.
 
Our online dating and social networking application relies heavily on email campaigns.  As our subscriber base continues to grow, we face an increasing risk that any disruptions in or restrictions on the sending or receipt of emails, or any increase in the associated costs could adversely affect our business and results of operations.
 
Our emails are an important driver of our subscribers’ activities. We send a large volume of emails to our subscribers notifying them of a variety of activities on our application, such as new matches.  As our subscriber base continues to grow we face an increasing risk that Internet service providers or email applications may block bulk email transmissions or otherwise experience technical difficulties that result in our inability to successfully deliver emails to our subscribers. Third parties may also block our emails as spam, impose restrictions on, or start to charge for, the delivery of emails through their email systems.  Without the ability to email these subscribers, we would have limited means of inducing subscribers to return to our website and application and to utilize our services. Due to the importance of email to our business, any disruptions or restrictions on the distribution or receipt of emails or increase in the associated costs could materially and adversely affect our business and results of operations.

Our business depends in large part upon the availability of advertising space through a variety of media.

We depend upon the availability of advertising space through a variety of media, including third party applications on platforms such as Facebook, to recruit new subscribers, generate activity from existing subscribers and direct traffic to our products.  The availability of advertising space varies.  A shortage of advertising space in any particular media or on any particular platform, or the elimination of a particular medium on which we advertise, could limit our ability to generate new subscribers, generate activity from existing subscribers or direct traffic to our products, any of which could materially and adversely affect our business and results of operations.
 
If we are unable to achieve desired results from, or maintain our advertising and marketing arrangements with certain third-party advertising or marketing providers to generate subscribers, our ability to generate revenue and our business could be adversely affected.

We have entered into multiple advertising and marketing arrangements with certain affiliate advertising and marketing providers that are designed to increase traffic to our application on the Facebook platform. Our ability to attract new subscribers and retain existing subscribers is based in part on our ability to generate increased traffic or better retention rates through these user acquisition campaigns.  In addition, we may lack the ability to control the advertisements and actions that are taken by these providers on the Facebook platform.

If we are unable to enter into such arrangements on favorable terms, are unable to achieve the desired results under these arrangements and programs, are unable to maintain these relationships, fail to generate sufficient traffic or generate sufficient revenue from purchases pursuant to these arrangements and programs, or properly manage the actions of these providers, our ability to generate revenue and our ability to attract and retain our subscribers may be impacted, negatively affecting our business and results of operations.   In addition, if Facebook restricts our ability to use such arrangements and programs or takes limits or restricts access to its platform by us or our applications as a result of advertisements or actions taken by third-party advertising or marketing providers, it could have a material adverse effect on our business or results of operations.

If we fail to effectively manage our growth, our business and operating results could be harmed.
 
We continue to experience rapid growth in our headcount and operations, which will continue to place significant demands on our management and our operational and financial infrastructure. As of December  31, 2011, approximately 51% of our employees had been with us for less than one year and approximately 63% for less than two years. As we continue to grow, we must expend significant resources to identify, hire, integrate, develop and motivate a number of qualified employees. If we fail to effectively manage our hiring needs and successfully integrate our new hires, our ability to continue launching new applications and enhance our existing application could suffer.
  
Our success depends upon our ability to attract and hire key personnel. Our inability to hire qualified individuals will negatively affect our business, and we will not be able to implement or expand our business plan. 
 
Our business is greatly dependent on our ability to attract key personnel. We will need to attract, develop, motivate and retain highly skilled technical employees. Competition for qualified personnel is intense and we may not be able to hire or retain qualified personnel. Our management has limited experience in recruiting key personnel, which may hurt our ability to recruit qualified individuals. If we are unable to hire or retain such employees, we will not be able to implement or expand our business plan.
 
We have identified material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting. These material weaknesses, if not corrected, could affect the reliability of our financial statements and have other adverse consequences.
 
Under Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, we are required to furnish a report by our management on internal control over financial reporting. This report must contain, among other matters, an assessment of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting, including a statement as to whether or not our internal control over financial reporting is effective. This assessment must include disclosure of any material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting identified by our management.
 
We have identified material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2011, as disclosed in “Item 9A. Controls and Procedures.”   We determined that we had a material weakness with respect to warrant liability, which resulted in a restatement of our financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011.  Failure to have effective internal controls could impair our ability to produce accurate financial statements on a timely basis and could lead to a restatement of our financial statements. If, as a result of deficiencies in our internal controls, we cannot provide reliable financial statements, our business decision processes may be adversely affected, our business and operating results could be harmed, investors could lose confidence in our reported financial information, the price of our common stock could decrease and our ability to obtain additional financing, or additional financing on favorable terms, could be adversely affected. In addition, failure to maintain effective internal control over financial reporting could result in investigations or sanctions by regulatory authorities.
 
We intend to take action to remediate the material weaknesses and improve the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting. However, we can give no assurances that the measures we may take will remediate the material weaknesses identified or that any additional material weaknesses will not arise in the future due to our failure to implement and maintain adequate internal control over financial reporting. In addition, even if we are successful in strengthening our controls and procedures, those controls and procedures may not be adequate to prevent or identify irregularities or ensure the fair presentation of our financial statements included in our periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
 
The restatement of our financial statements has subjected us to additional risks and uncertainties, including the increased possibility of legal proceedings.
 
As a result of the restatement of our financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011, we have become subject to additional risks and uncertainties, including, among others, increased professional fees and expenses, the increased possibility of legal proceedings, the review of the SEC and other regulatory bodies which could cause investors to lose confidence in our reported financial information and could subject us to civil or criminal penalties, shareholder class actions or derivative actions. We could face monetary judgments, penalties or other sanctions that could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations and could cause our stock price to decline.
 
Our market is characterized by rapid technological change, and if we fail to develop and market new technologies rapidly, we may not become profitable in the future.
 
The Internet and the social networking application industry are characterized by rapid technological change that could render our existing application and website obsolete. The development of our application and website entails significant technical and business risks. We may be unable to successfully use new technologies effectively or adapt our application and website to user preferences or needs. If our management is unable, for technical, legal, financial, or other reasons, to adapt in a timely manner in response to changing market conditions or user preferences, we may never become consistently profitable, which may result in the loss of all or part of your investment.

Newly developed products may be incompatible with market needs resulting in an adverse effect on our sales and earnings.

Our business is particularly subject to changing consumer trends and preferences.  Our continued success depends in part on our ability to anticipate and respond to these changes, and we may not respond in a timely or commercially appropriate manner to such changes.  If we fail to understand consumer needs in the online dating market, we may face limited market acceptance of newly developed products, which could have a material adverse effect on our revenues.

Our growth prospects will suffer if we are unable to develop and support our application for mobile platforms.
 
We have limited experience developing and supporting our application for mobile platforms.  We expect to devote substantial resources to the development and support of our mobile application, and our limited experience makes it difficult to know whether we will succeed in developing and supporting such application.  The uncertainties we face include:

  
our experience in developing and supporting our application for use primarily on Facebook may not be relevant for developing and supporting our application for mobile platforms;
  
we have limited experience working with wireless carriers, mobile platform providers and other partners whose cooperation we may need in order to be successful;
  
we may encounter difficulty in integrating features on applications developed for mobile platforms that a sufficient number of subscribers will pay for; and
  
we may need to allow for a variety of payment methods and systems based on mobile platforms, geographies and other factors.
 
These and other uncertainties make it difficult to know whether we will succeed in developing and supporting our  application for mobile platforms. If we do not succeed in doing so, our prospects for growth will suffer.

We may need additional financing to execute our business plan. If we do not obtain additional financing it could have a material adverse effect on our business.
 
Revenues from subscriptions and capital raised to date may be inadequate to support our expansion, marketing efforts and product development programs. Due to planned expansion and advertising expenditures, we do not anticipate that we will operate at a profit in the near-term. We may need substantial additional funds to:

  
effectuate our long-term growth strategy and expand our product development;

  
market our products to attract more paying subscribers; and

  
hire additional technical and managerial talent.

We may be unable to obtain future funding on favorable terms or at all. If we cannot obtain additional funding, we will need to reduce, defer or cancel development programs, planned initiatives, or overhead expenditures. The failure to fund our capital requirements could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

Our future success is dependent, in part, on the performance and continued service of Clifford Lerner, our Chief Executive Officer and sole director. Without his continued service, we may be forced to interrupt or eventually cease our operations.
 
We are dependent to a great extent upon the experience, abilities and continued services of Clifford Lerner, our Chief Executive Officer and sole director. The loss of his services would substantially delay our business operations and could have a materially adverse effect on our business and products.

A significant majority of our application traffic is hosted by a single vendor and any failure or significant interruption in our network could impact our operations and harm our business.
 
Our technology infrastructure is critical to the performance of our application and to our subscribers’ satisfaction. Significant elements of this system are operated by third parties that we do not control and which would require significant time to replace. We expect this dependence on third parties to continue. In particular, a significant majority of our application traffic is hosted by a single vendor. We have experienced, and may in the future experience, website disruptions, outages and other performance problems due to a variety of factors, including infrastructure changes, human or software errors and capacity constraints. If a particular application is unavailable when subscribers attempt to access it or interaction through an application is slower than they expect, subscribers may stop using the application and may be less likely to return to the application as often, if at all. A failure or significant interruption in the availability of our application would harm our reputation and operations. We expect to continue to make investments to our technology infrastructure to maintain and improve all aspects of our subscribers’ experience and application performance. To the extent that we do not effectively address capacity constraints, upgrade our systems as needed and continually develop our technology and network architecture to accommodate increasing traffic, our business and operating results may suffer. We do not maintain insurance policies covering losses relating to our systems and we do not have business interruption insurance.
 
We are exposed to risks associated with credit card processors and related merchant account approvals that, if not properly addressed, could increase our operating expenses or preclude us from accepting credit cards as a method of payment.
 
We depend on the ability to accept credit and debit card payments from our subscribers and the related merchant account approval to process subscription payments.  Our reliance on credit card and related merchant account approvals exposes us to fraud and credit card chargebacks. We have suffered losses and may continue to suffer losses as a result of subscriptions placed with fraudulent credit card data as well as users who chargeback their purchases. Under current credit card practices, a merchant is liable for fraudulent credit card transactions when, as is the case with the transactions we process, that merchant does not obtain a cardholder’s signature. Our failure to adequately control fraudulent credit card transactions and keep our chargebacks under an acceptable threshold would result in significantly higher credit card-related costs and, therefore, increase our operating expenses or even preclude us from accepting credit cards as a means of payment.

If government regulation or taxation of the online dating, social networking or Internet industries increase, it may adversely affect our business and operating results.
 
We may be subject to additional operating restrictions and government regulations in the future. Companies engaging in e-commerce, online dating, social networking and related businesses face uncertainty related to future government regulation of the Internet. Due to the rapid growth and widespread use of the Internet, federal and state governments are enacting and considering various laws and regulations relating to the Internet in areas including, but not limited to, billing practices, online safety and taxation. Furthermore, the application of existing laws and regulations to Internet companies remains somewhat unclear. Our business and operating results may be negatively affected by new laws, and such existing or new regulations may expose us to substantial compliance costs and liabilities and may impede the growth in use of the Internet. In addition, sales tax for business conducted on the Internet is rapidly being legislated in the various states and abroad.  We may incur substantial liabilities or expenses necessary to comply with these laws and regulations or penalties for any failure to comply.

If there are changes in regulations regarding privacy and protection of user data, or we fail to comply with such laws, we may face claims brought against us under any of these regulations and it could adversely affect our business.
 
Federal, state and international laws and regulations govern the collection, use, retention, sharing and security of data that we receive from and about our users. Any failure, or perceived failure, by us to comply with regulations of privacy and protection of user data or with any data-related consent orders, Federal Trade Commission requirements or orders, or other federal, state, or international privacy or consumer protection-related laws, regulations or industry self-regulatory principles could result in proceedings or actions against us by governmental entities or others, which could potentially have an adverse effect on our business. As a company that provides services over the Internet, we may be subject to a claim or class-action lawsuit brought under any of these or future laws governing online services. The successful assertion of these claims against us could result in potentially significant monetary damages, diversion of management resources and require us to make significant payments and incur substantial legal expenses.  Any claims with respect to violation of privacy or user data brought against us may adversely affect our business.

If we are unable to protect our intellectual property rights, we may be unable to compete with competitors developing similar technologies.
 
Our success and ability to compete are often dependent upon development of software technology for our application and website. While we rely on copyright, trade secret and trademark law to protect our intellectual property, we believe that factors such as the technological and creative skills of our personnel, new service developments, frequent enhancements or our services and reliable maintenance are more essential to establishing a technology leadership position. There can be no assurance that others will not develop technologies that are similar or superior to our technology. Despite our efforts to protect our proprietary rights, unauthorized parties may attempt to copy or otherwise obtain and use our technology, making it more difficult for us to compete.
 
If we are subject to intellectual property infringement claims, it could cause us to incur significant expenses, pay substantial damages and prevent service delivery.
 
Third parties may claim that our products or services infringe or violate their intellectual property rights. Any such claims could cause us to incur significant expenses and, if successfully asserted against us, could require that we pay substantial damages and prevent us from using licensed technology that may be fundamental to our application and website. Even if we were to prevail, any litigation regarding intellectual property could be costly and time-consuming and divert the attention of our management and key personnel from our business operations. We may also be obligated to indemnify our business partners in any such litigation, which could further exhaust our resources. Furthermore, as a result of an intellectual property challenge, we may be prevented from providing some of our services unless we enter into royalty, license or other agreements. We may not be able to obtain such agreements at all or on terms acceptable to us, and as a result, we may be precluded from offering some of our products and services.
 
Programming errors or flaws in our product could harm our reputation or decrease market acceptance of our products, which would harm our operating results.

Our application and website may contain errors, bugs, flaws or corrupted data, and these defects may only become apparent after their launch, particularly as we launch new applications or websites and rapidly release new features to our existing product under tight time constraints. We believe that if our users have a negative experience with our application or website, they may be less inclined to continue or resume using our product or recommend our product to other potential users.  In addition, programming errors or defects may allow users access to premium features even if they do not pay for such content.  Undetected programming errors, defects and data corruption can disrupt our operations, adversely affect the experience of our users, harm our reputation, cause our users to stop using our application or website, divert our resources and delay market acceptance of our product, any of which could result in legal liability to us or harm our operating results.

Interruption or failure of our programming code, servers, or technological infrastructure could hurt our ability to effectively provide our product, which could damage our reputation and harm our operating results.

The availability of our product depends on the continuing operation of our programming code, servers and technological infrastructure. Any damage to, or failure of, our systems could result in interruptions in our service, which could reduce our revenue and damage our brand. Our systems are vulnerable to damage or interruption from terrorist attacks, floods, fires, power loss, telecommunications failures, computer viruses, computer denial of service attacks or other attempts to harm our systems. Our data centers are subject to break-ins, sabotage and intentional acts of vandalism and to potential disruptions if the operators of these facilities have financial difficulties. Some of our systems are not fully redundant, and our disaster recovery planning cannot account for all eventualities. The occurrence of a natural disaster, a decision to close an information technology facility we are using without adequate notice, or other unanticipated problems at our data centers could result in lengthy interruptions in our service.

Security breaches, computer viruses and computer hacking attacks could harm our business and results of operations.
 
Security breaches, computer malware and computer hacking attacks have become more prevalent in our industry. Any security breach caused by hacking, including efforts to gain unauthorized access to our applications, servers or websites, or to cause intentional malfunctions or loss or corruption of data, software, hardware or other computer equipment, and the inadvertent transmission of computer viruses could harm our business, financial condition and operating results. Though it is difficult to determine what harm may directly result from any specific interruption or breach, any failure to maintain performance, reliability, security and availability of our application, servers or website may result in significant expenses, loss of revenue and adverse effects to our business.
 
We hold a limited amount of insurance coverage, and if we were found liable for an uninsured claim, or claim in excess of our insurance limits, we may be forced to expend significant capital to resolve the uninsured claim.
 
We contract for a limited amount of insurance to cover potential risks and liabilities, including, but not limited to, Director and Officer Insurance and Error and Omission Insurance. Even if we decide to obtain additional insurance coverage in the future, it is possible that: (1) we may not be able to get enough insurance to meet our needs; (2) we may have to pay very high premiums for the additional coverage; (3) we may not be able to acquire any insurance for certain types of business risk; or (4) we may have gaps in coverage for certain risks. We may be exposed to potential uninsured claims for which we could have to expend significant amounts of capital resources. Consequently, if we were found liable for a significant uninsured claim in the future, we may be forced to expend a significant amount of our operating capital to resolve the uninsured claim.
 
We face certain risks related to the physical and emotional safety of users, paying subscribers and third parties.

We cannot control the actions of our users and subscribers in their communications or physical actions. There is a possibility that users, subscribers or third parties could be physically or emotionally harmed following interaction with another one of our users or subscribers. We warn our users and subscribers that we do not screen other users and subscribers and, given our lack of physical presence, we do not take any action to ensure personal safety on a meeting between users or subscribers arranged following contact initiated via our application or website. If an unfortunate incident of this nature occurred in a meeting of two people following contact initiated on our application or website or a website of one of our competitors, any resulting negative publicity could materially and adversely affect us or the industry in general. Any such incident involving our application or website could damage our reputation and our brands. This, in turn, could adversely affect our revenue and could cause the value of our common stock to decline. In addition, the affected users, subscribers or third parties could initiate legal action against us, which could divert management attention from operations, cause us to incur significant expense, whether we were successful or not, and damage our reputation.
 
We face risks of litigation and regulatory actions if we are deemed a dating service or Internet dating service.

In certain states, companies that provide dating services or Internet dating services are subject to various  regulations.  Because our application and website promote social introductions, we could be exposed to regulation as a dating or Internet dating service.  If we were considered to be a dating service or Internet dating service in any of the jurisdictions in which we operate, we would be required to comply with regulations that require us to, among other things, (i) provide language in our contracts that would allow users to rescind their contracts within a certain period of time, demand reimbursement of a portion of the contract price if the user dies during the term of the contract and cancel their contract in the event of disability or relocation and (ii) provide disclosures regarding our screening practices and warnings on our application and website regarding the dangers associated with the use of our product.  If a court determines that we have provided and are providing dating services or Internet dating services of the type that the dating services or Internet dating services regulations are intended to regulate, we could be deemed to be out of compliance with such regulations and could liable for any damages as a result of our past non-compliance, either of which could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations.

Risks Related to Our Common Stock

Our quarterly operating results are volatile and difficult to predict, and our stock price may decline if we fail to meet the expectations of securities analysts or investors.
 
Our revenue, traffic and operating results could vary significantly from quarter-to-quarter and year-to-year and may fail to match our past performance because of a variety of factors, many of which are outside of our control. Any of these events could cause the market price of our common stock to fluctuate. Factors that may contribute to the variability of our operating results include:

  
changes in expectations as to our future financial performance;

  
announcements by us or our competitors of significant contracts, acquisitions, strategic partnerships or capital commitments;

  
the timing of the launch and the popularity of new applications and enhancements to our existing application by us or our competitors;

  
the amount of advertising and marketing that is available and spent on user acquisition campaigns;

  
changes to the third party platforms on which we operate;

  
disruptions in the availability of our application or of third party platforms;

  
actual or perceived violations of privacy obligations and compromises of our subscribers data;

  
the entrance of new competitors in our market whether by established companies or the entrance of new companies;

  
additions or departures of key personnel and the cost of attracting and retaining application developers and other software engineers; and

  
general market conditions, including market volatility.

Given our short operating history and the rapidly evolving industry in which we operate, our historical operating results may not be useful in predicting our future operating results. In addition, metrics available from third parties regarding our industry and the performance of our application may not be indicative of our financial performance.

At times when our common stock is thinly traded, you may be unable to sell at or near ask prices or at all if you need to liquidate your shares, and the price of our common stock may be volatile.
 
In the past, the shares of our common stock have been thinly-traded on the OTC Bulletin Board (the “OTC Bulletin Board”), meaning that the number of persons interested in purchasing our common stock at or near ask prices at any given time may be relatively small or non-existent. This situation is attributable to a number of factors, including the fact that we are a small company that is relatively unknown to stock analysts, stock brokers, institutional investors and others in the investment community that generate or influence sales volume, and that even if we came to the attention of such persons, they tend to be risk-averse and would be reluctant to follow a growing company such as ours or purchase or recommend the purchase of our shares until such time as we became more seasoned and viable. As a consequence, there may be periods of several days or more when trading activity in our shares is minimal or non-existent, as compared to a seasoned issuer that has a large and steady volume of trading activity that will generally support continuous sales without an adverse effect on share price. A broader or more active public trading market for our common shares may not develop or be sustained, and the current trading level of our common stock may not be sustained. Due to these conditions, you may be unable to sell your common stock at or near ask prices or at all if you need money or otherwise desire to liquidate your common stock.
 
 
12

 
 
Because of the limited trading market expected to develop for our common stock, and because of the possible price volatility, you may not be able to sell your shares of common stock when you desire to do so. The inability to sell your shares in a rapidly declining market may substantially increase your risk of loss because of such illiquidity and because the price for our common stock may suffer greater declines because of its price volatility.

Our common stock is deemed to be a “penny stock,” which may make it more difficult for investors to sell their shares due to suitability requirements.

Our common stock is subject to Rule 15g-1 through 15g-9 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), which imposes certain sales practice requirements on broker-dealers which sell our common stock to persons other than established customers and accredited investors. For transactions covered by this rule, a broker-dealer must make a special suitability determination for the purchaser and have received the purchaser’s written consent to the transaction prior to the sale. This rule adversely affects the ability of broker-dealers to sell our common stock and the ability of our stockholders to sell their shares of common stock.

Additionally, our common stock is subject to SEC regulations for “penny stock.” Penny stock includes any equity security that is not listed on a national exchange and has a market price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. The regulations require that prior to any non-exempt buy/sell transaction in a penny stock, a disclosure schedule set forth by the SEC relating to the penny stock market must be delivered to the purchaser of such penny stock. This disclosure must include the amount of commissions payable to both the broker-dealer and the registered representative and current price quotations for the common stock. The regulations also require that monthly statements be sent to holders of penny stock that disclose recent price information for the penny stock and information of the limited market for penny stocks. These requirements adversely affect the liquidity and market price of our common stock.

We may obtain additional financing by issuing additional shares of common stock, which would dilute the ownership of our stockholders.
 
We may need to raise funds through either debt or issuing shares of our common stock in order to achieve our business goals. Although there are no present plans, agreements, commitments or undertakings with respect to the issuance of additional shares or securities convertible into any such shares by us, any shares issued would dilute the percentage ownership of our current stockholders.

Clifford Lerner’s control may prevent you from directing the course of our operations and may affect the price of our common stock.
 
Clifford Lerner beneficially owns approximately 58% of our common stock as of March 22, 2012. As long as Mr. Lerner beneficially owns more than 50% of our common stock, he will be able to elect our entire board of directors, control all matters that require a stockholder vote (such as mergers, acquisitions and other business combinations) and exercise a significant amount of influence over our management and operations. As such, the value attributable to the right to vote is limited.
 
This concentration of ownership could result in a reduction in value to the common stock you own because of the ineffective voting power, and could have the effect of preventing us from undergoing a change of control in the future.

Future sales of our common stock by Clifford Lerner may negatively affect our stock price and our ability to raise funds in new stock offerings.
 
Clifford Lerner beneficially owns 25,250,000 shares of our common stock. Sales of our common stock by Mr. Lerner into the public market could decrease the prevailing market price of our common stock. If this is the case, investors in our shares of common stock may be forced to sell such shares at prices below the price they paid for their shares. In addition, a decreased market price may result in potential future investors losing confidence in us and failing to provide needed funding. This will have a negative effect on our ability to raise equity capital in the future.
 
 
13

 
 
The large number of shares issuable upon exercise of warrants could have an adverse affect on our stock price.

In January 2011, we issued warrants to purchase an aggregate of 2,380,000 shares of common stock with an exercise price of $2.50 per share to investors and a placement agent. We have a registration statement on file with the SEC that registers the resale of the shares of common stock underlying the warrants.  As long as the registration statement is effective, an investor has the ability to sell such shares without any volume restrictions.

The price of our common stock could significantly decline if such persons elect to sell their shares in the market at times when there are not a corresponding number of investors willing to purchase such shares at the asked prices. In addition, the large number of outstanding warrants may cause an overhang on the market and prevent the market price of the common stock from rising above the warrant exercise price.
 
If we fail to remain current on our reporting requirements, we could be removed from the OTC Bulletin Board, which would limit the ability of broker-dealers to sell our common stock and the ability of stockholders to sell their common stock in the secondary market.

Companies trading on the OTC Bulletin Board must be reporting issuers under Section 12 of the Exchange Act and, to maintain price quotation privileges on the OTC Bulletin Board, must be current in their quarterly and annual reports that are required to be filed under the Exchange Act. If we fail to remain current on our reporting requirements, we could be removed from the OTC Bulletin Board. As a result, the market liquidity for our common stock could be adversely affected by limiting the ability of broker-dealers to sell our common stock and the ability of stockholders to sell their common stock in the secondary market.

We do not expect to pay dividends and investors should not buy our common stock expecting to receive dividends.
 
We have not paid any dividends on our common stock in the past, and do not anticipate that we will declare or pay any dividends in the foreseeable future. Consequently, investors will only realize an economic gain on their investment in our common stock if the price appreciates. Investors should not purchase our common stock expecting to receive cash dividends. Because we do not pay dividends, and there may be limited trading, investors may not have any manner to liquidate or receive any payment on their investment. Therefore, our failure to pay dividends may cause investors to not see any return on your investment even if we are successful in our business operations. In addition, because we do not pay dividends we may have trouble raising additional funds which could affect our ability to expand our business operations.

The market price of our common stock is subject to significant fluctuations in response to variations in our quarterly operating results, general trends in the market, and other factors, over many of which we have little or no control. In addition, broad market fluctuations, as well as general economic, business and political conditions, may adversely affect the market for our common stock, regardless of our actual or projected performance.

Holders

As of March 22, 2012, there were 27 holders of record of our common stock. This does not reflect the number of persons or entities who held stock in nominee or street name through various brokerage firms.
 
Dividends

To date, we have not declared or paid any dividends on our common stock. We currently do not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future on our common stock. Although we intend to retain our earnings, if any, to finance the exploration and growth of our business, our Board of Directors has the discretion to declare and pay dividends in the future.
 
Payment of dividends in the future will depend upon our earnings, capital requirements, and any other factors that our Board of Directors deems relevant.

Overview

We develop, own and operate a dating and social networking software application under the AreYouInterested.com brand that can be accessed on Facebook, mobile devices such as iPhone and Android, as well as a stand-alone website. We primarily generate revenue from subscription fees and, as of March 22, 2012, we had approximately 145,000 active subscribers. We consider a subscriber to be “active” if he or she has pre-paid for current access to premium features and the term of the subscriber’s subscription period has not yet expired. The number of our daily and monthly active users as publicly reported by AppData, which includes non-paying users and paying subscribers, varies greatly on a daily and monthly basis, respectively, and is much greater than the number of our active subscribers for the same measurement period.
 
Our key financial highlights for 2011 include:

  
Revenue increased 187% to $19,155,543 for 2011 compared to $6,668,627 for 2010; and
 
  
Deferred revenue at December 31, 2011 increased 62% to $3,138,406 compared to $1,937,915 at December 31, 2010.
   
  
Overall liquidity including investments at December 31, 2011 increased 194% to $8,879,033 compared to $3,018,876 at December 31, 2010, primarily as a result of the January 2011 financing;
   
  
Advertising and marketing expense increased 274% to $14,626,963 for 2011 compared to $3,906,317 for 2010; and
   
  
Net loss increased 37% to $1,593,173 for 2011 compared to $1,167,070 for 2010.
 
 
16

 
 
Our key product highlights for 2011 include:
 
  
Adding 14 million new profiles to the AreYouInterested.com brand;
 
  
Providing 1.9 million downloads of our AreYouInterested.com iPhone application from the iPhone App Store;
 
  
Launching a mobile web version of AreYouInterested.com; and
 
  
Increasing mobile engagement to 13% of all logins during December 2011.
 
Key Performance Indicators

Management believes that the following financial and operating measurements are key indicators of the strength of our business:

  
Subscription sales and revenue;

  
Subscriber retention rate; and

  
Website and application traffic.
 
How We Generate Revenue

We generate the majority of our revenue through subscription fees and premium sales on our AreYouInterested.com application.  In the first quarter of 2011, we began to significantly increase our marketing and advertising expenditures, which we believe has supported contemporaneous growth in our subscription revenue.  Our subscription-based offering on the AreYouInterested.com brand provides users with unlimited messaging, unlimited access to communicate with their matches, the ability to see who viewed their profile, and access to several other premium features.
 
Most of our revenue is generated from subscriptions originating on our AreYouInterested.com Facebook dating application, and an increasing amount of our revenue is generated through subscription sales on mobile platforms. While growing the subscription base of AreYouInterested.com on the web remains an objective, our priority for AreYouInterested.com will continue to be focused on developing mobile gateways to access AreYouInterested.com and user acquisition on mobile products.  We also generate a small portion of our revenue through advertisements on our products and, until we discontinued the option in February 2012, from the sale of “points” that were used to purchase virtual gifts on the application and access certain other premium features.
 
Our users have a variety of methods by which to purchase subscriptions to AreYouInterested.com.  Users can pay by credit card, Paypal, Boku (a mobile payment provider) or as an In-App purchase through Apple Inc.’s iPhone App Store.  Pursuant to Apple Inc.’s terms of service, Apple Inc. retains 30% of the revenue that is generated from sales on our iPhone application through In-App purchases in the United States.  Regardless of which payment method is utilized, users may access the AreYouInterested.com product through any of the gateways we offer.
 
We recognize revenue from monthly premium subscription fees in the month in which the services are provided. Revenues are presented net of refunds, credits and known and estimated credit card chargebacks.  During 2011, subscriptions were offered in durations of one, three and six month terms.  A twelve month subscription term was added in February 2012.  Longer-term plans (those with durations longer than one month) are generally available at discounted monthly rates.  All subscription fees, however, are collected at the time of purchase regardless of the length of the subscription term.  Revenues from multi-month subscriptions are recognized over the length of the subscription term rather than when the subscription is purchased.  Pursuant to our terms of service, most subscriptions automatically renew for periods of the same length as the original subscription term until subscribers terminate them.
 
 
17

 
 
We recognized revenue from the direct sale of “points” over two months. Users could either purchase or earn points by performing activities, such as by browsing profiles, that could be used in exchange for accessing certain premium features on our applications.  Determining whether the criteria for spending points had been satisfied often involved management making assumptions and judgments that may have an impact on the timing and amount of revenue we recognize in each period. In February 2012, we discontinued the sale of points and decided to focus solely on subscription and advertising revenues.   We recognize advertising revenue as earned on a click-through, impression and registration or subscription basis.

We currently offer several different payment method options and maintain relationships with multiple payment processors in order to: (i) diversify our risk and reliance on a single payment processor, (ii) ensure competitive rates and (iii) offer our users as many payment options as possible.  We intend to continue testing and implementing additional payment methods as opportunities arise and resources permit.

Our Business Objectives

During 2012, our business objectives include: 

  
Rebuilding the AreYouInterested.com brand around interest-based matching and social discovery;
 
  
Continuing to integrate and expand the overall product offering between the AreYouInterested.com Facebook application, AreYouInterested.com website and AreYouInterested.com iPhone and Android applications for an enhanced user experience across all platforms;
 
  
Increasing the amount of resources devoted to mobile initiatives and increasing usage and engagement on our mobile products;
 
  
Refining our marketing and statistical tracking tools; and

  
Identifying and exploring new opportunities in our rapidly evolving industry.

Results of Operations  — Year Ended December 31, 2011 Compared to Year Ended December 31, 2010

Revenues
 
Revenue increased to $19,155,543 for the year ended December 31, 2011 from $6,668,627 for the year ended December 31, 2010, an increase of $12,486,916, or 187%. The increase in revenue is due primarily to an increase in subscription/point sales on the AreYouInterested.com brand in 2011 as compared to 2010. Our revenue generated from subscription/point sales and advertising was $18,781,368 and $374,175, respectively, for the year ended December 31, 2011, compared to $6,413,874 and $254,753, for the year ended December 31, 2010.

Costs and Expenses

Costs and expenses increased to $22,819,483 for the year ended December 31, 2011 from $7,840,460 for the year ended December 31, 2010, representing an increase of $14,979,023, or 191%. The increase in operating expenses is primarily attributable to a significant increase in advertising and marketing expenditures for user acquisition campaigns as well as increased compensation and general and administrative expense associated with the overall expansion of our business.

Advertising and marketing expense increased to $14,626,963 for the year ended December 31, 2011 from $3,906,317 for the year ended December 31, 2010, representing an increase of $10,720,646, or 274%. The increase in advertising and marketing expense is attributable to an increase in user acquisition campaigns. We anticipate experiencing further increases in marketing expenses throughout 2012 as we continue to expand our user base.
 
Programming, hosting and technology expense increased to $2,930,536 for the year ended December 31, 2011 from $1,581,332 for the year ended December 31, 2010, an increase of $1,349,204, or 85%.  The increase in programming, hosting and technology expense is primarily attributable to increased salary expenses due to expansion of our engineering and development staff as well as increased expenses related to hosting, bandwidth, and server optimization related to email deliverability.
 
 
18

 
 
Compensation expense, which excludes the cost of developers and programmers included in programming, hosting and technology expense above, increased to $1,633,670 for the year ended December 31, 2011 from $1,108,137 for the year ended December 31, 2010, representing an increase of $525,533, or 47%. The increase in compensation expense was primarily due to increases in stock-based compensation expense and increased headcount in management and support areas versus the prior year.
 
General and administrative expense increased to $3,070,178 for the year ended December 31, 2011 from $1,085,322 for the year ended December 31, 2010, representing an increase of $1,984,856, or 183%.  The increase in general and administrative expense is primarily attributable to increases in transaction fees related to accepting subscription payments, including credit card processing fees and foreign currency transaction fees. General and administrative expense also increased due to increased insurance expense, recruiting expense and increased costs associated with the overall expansion of our business.
  
Professional fees increased to $558,136 for the year ended December 31, 2011 from $159,352 for the year ended December 31, 2010, representing an increase of $398,784, or 250%. The increase in professional fees was primarily due to increased legal fees, particularly in the areas of intellectual property, trademarks, consumer privacy and regulatory compliance, as well as accounting fees as a result of the overall expansion of our business.
 
Other income increased to $2,070,767 for the year ended December 31, 2011 from $17,359 for the year ended December 31, 2010, representing an increase of $   2,053,408, or 11,829.1%. The increase in other income was primarily due to our warrant liability, which is marked-to-market at each reporting period, with changes in fair value reported in earnings.  The mark-to-market income of $2,038,000 for the year ended December 31, 2011 represents the change in fair value of the warrant liability during the year. There was no warrant liability for the year ended December 31, 2010.
 
Net Loss
 
As a result of the foregoing, net loss increased to $1,593,173 for the year ended December 31, 2011 from a net loss of $1,167,070 for the year ended December 31, 2010, an increase in net loss of $426,103.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
We have historically financed our operations through cash generated from our January 2011 financing, subscription fees received from our AreYouInterested.com application and online dating website, fees for premium features of our application and revenues derived from advertisements purchased on our various applications.
 
As of December 31, 2011, we had $2,397,828 in cash and cash equivalents compared to $3,018,876 as of December 31, 2010.  As of December 31, 2011, we had $8,879,033 in overall liquidity including investments, compared to $3,018,876 as of December 31, 2010, an increase of 194%. Historically, our working capital has been generated through operations and equity offerings. If we continue to grow and expand our operations, our need for working capital will increase. For the near-term, we do not anticipate being profitable because we intend to increase our marketing and advertising expenditures to acquire new users and we expect to hire additional employees.  We further expect that our cash and cash equivalents will decrease throughout the remainder of 2012. We intend to finance our internal growth with cash on hand, cash provided from operations, borrowings, debt or equity offerings, or some combination thereof.  We believe that our cash provided from operations, cash on hand and investments will provide sufficient capital to fund our operations for the next twelve months.

A significant portion of our expenses is related to user acquisition costs. Our marketing and advertising expenses are primarily spent on channels where we can estimate the return on investment without long-term commitments. Accordingly, we can adjust our marketing and advertising expenditures quickly based on the expected return on investment, which provides flexibility and enables us to manage our marketing and advertising expense.
 
Net cash used in operating activities was $1,455,542 for the year ended December 31, 2011 as compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $1,145,694 for the year ended December 31, 2010.  This decrease of $2,601,236 is primarily a result of the increase in net loss, particularly from increases in advertising and marketing expense, increases in general and administrative expense and programming, hosting and technology expense as described above, as well as an increase in accounts receivable.  These uses of cash were offset in part by sources of cash from increases in accounts payable and accrued expenses and an increase in deferred revenue.  Net cash provided by financing activities increased to $8,003,825 for the year ended December 31, 2011, which reflects the proceeds from the January 2011 equity financing.  Net cash used in investing activities of $7,169,331 for the year ended December 31, 2011 reflects the investment of proceeds from the January 2011 equity financing, the investment in fixed assets relating to technology purchases and the build-out of our new office space and the issuance of notes receivable related to certain employee stock awards.

Financing Activities

On January 19, 2011 (the “Closing Date”), for gross subscription proceeds of $8,500,000 (the “Offering”) we issued: (i) 4,250,000 shares of our common stock (the “Purchased Shares”) and (ii) warrants (the “Warrants”) exercisable into 2,125,000 shares of common stock (the “Warrant Shares”) at an exercise price of $2.50 per share to certain accredited investors (the “Investors”).  
 
In connection with the Offering, we granted the Investors registration rights pursuant to a registration rights agreement dated as of the Closing Date (the “Registration Rights Agreement”). Under the Registration Rights Agreement, we agreed to register with the SEC the resale of: (i) all of the Purchased Shares; (ii) the Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of the Warrants and (iii) any securities issued or then issuable upon any stock split, dividend or other distribution, recapitalization or similar event with respect to the foregoing on a registration statement.
 
In connection with the Offering, we paid a cash placement agency fee to the placement agent equal to 6% of the aggregate purchase price paid by the Investors. We further agreed to pay a cash fee equal to 6% of the aggregate cash exercise price received by us upon the exercise of the Warrants.  In addition, the placement agent was issued 255,000 warrants with an exercise price of $2.50 per share.

Receivables

At December 31, 2011, we had accounts receivable from payment processors and advertising networks that place advertisements on our application in the amount of $477,432 and $64,330, respectively. The settlement of credit card sales by payment processors typically occurs several days after the date of the charge, and we generally receive payments from mobile payment processors and advertising networks on a monthly basis.
 
We also had a credit card holdback receivable of $441,840 as of December 31, 2011, which was held by payment processors.
 
As our revenue has increased, our accounts receivable and credit card holdback receivable balances have grown correspondingly.  We expect this trend to continue relative to our future revenue.

Critical Accounting Policies

We recognize revenue on arrangements in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) No. 605, Revenue Recognition. In all cases, revenue is recognized only when the price is fixed or determinable, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the service is performed and collectability is reasonably assured.  We have revenue streams consisting of subscriptions, sales of points and advertisements.  We recognize revenue from monthly premium subscription fees in the month in which the services are used.  Revenues are presented net of refunds, credits and known credit card chargebacks. During 2011, subscriptions were offered in durations of varying length from one month to six months – generally in one, three, and six month terms.  A twelve month subscription term was added in February 2012.  Revenues from multi-month subscriptions are recognized over the length of the subscription term rather than when the subscription is purchased.  Because a significant amount of our subscription sales occurred from subscriptions with a term of three months or six months, we apportion that revenue over the duration of the subscription term even though it is collected in full at the time of purchase.  The difference between the gross cash receipts collected and the recognized revenue from those sales during that reporting period will appear as deferred revenue.  We also recognized revenue from the direct sale of “points” over two months. Points could be used in exchange for premium features on our product.  We recognize advertising revenue as earned on a click-through, impression, and registration or subscription basis.  When a user clicks an advertisement (CPC basis), views an advertisement impression (CPM basis), registers for an external website via an advertisement clicked on through our application (CPA basis), or clicks on an offer to subscribe to premium features on our applications, the contract amount is recognized as revenue..

In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (“ASC 480”), the fair value of the Company’s warrants is classified as a liability on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets because, according to the warrants' terms, a fundamental transaction could give rise to an obligation of the Company to pay cash to its warrant holders.  Corresponding changes in the fair value of the warrants are recognized in earnings on the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Operations in each subsequent period.
 
 
20

 
 
We account for income taxes under the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) ASC No. 740, Income Taxes (“ASC 740”).  Under ASC 740, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled.  Under ASC 740, the effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.

In accordance with ASC No. 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation (“ASC 718”), we measure the compensation costs of stock-based compensation arrangements based on the grant-date fair value and recognize the costs in the financial statements over the period during which employees are required to provide services. Stock-based compensation arrangements include stock options, restricted stock plans, performance-based awards, stock appreciation rights and employee stock purchase plans.  As such, compensation cost is measured on the date of grant at their fair value.  Compensation amounts concerning stock options, if any, are amortized over the respective vesting periods of the grant.   Equity instruments (“instruments”) issued to other than employees are recorded on the basis of the fair value of the instruments, as required by ASC 718.  ASC No. 505, Equity Based Payments to Non-Employees (“ASC 505”) defines the measurement date and recognition period for such instruments.  In general, the measurement date is (a) when a performance commitment, as defined, is reached or (b) when the earlier of (i) the non-employee performance is complete or (ii) the instruments are vested. The measured value related to the instruments is recognized over a period based on the facts and circumstances of each particular grant as defined in ASC 505.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In October 2009, the FASB issued an Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) No. 2009-13 (“ASU 2009-13”), which addresses the accounting for multiple-deliverable arrangements to enable vendors to account for products or services separately rather than as a combined unit and modifies the manner in which the transaction consideration is allocated across the separately identified deliverables. ASU 2009-13 significantly expands the disclosure requirements for multiple-deliverable revenue arrangements. ASU 2009-13 is effective for the first annual reporting period beginning on or after June 15, 2010, and may be applied retrospectively for all periods presented or prospectively to arrangements entered into or materially modified after the adoption date. The adoption of ASU 2009-13 on January 1, 2011 did not have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements upon its required adoption.

In January 2010, the FASB issued guidance to amend the disclosure requirements related to recurring and nonrecurring fair value measurements. The guidance requires new disclosures on the transfers of assets and liabilities between Level 1 (quoted prices in active market for identical assets or liabilities) and Level 2 (significant other observable inputs) of the fair value measurement hierarchy, including the reasons and the timing of the transfers. Additionally, the guidance requires a roll forward of activities on purchases, sales, issuance, and settlements of the assets and liabilities measured using significant unobservable inputs (Level 3 fair value measurements). The guidance became effective for the Company with the reporting period beginning January 1, 2010, except for the disclosure on the roll forward activities for Level 3 fair value measurements, which became effective for the Company with the reporting period beginning July 1, 2011. Other than requiring additional disclosures, adoption of this new guidance did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In April 2010, the FASB issued ASU No. 2010-13 (“ASU 2010-13”), which amends ASC 718 – Compensation – Stock Compensation (“ASC 718”) to clarify that a stock-based payment award with an exercise price denominated in the currency of a market in which a substantial portion of the entity’s equity securities trades shall not be considered to contain a market, performance, or service condition. Therefore, such an award is not to be classified as a liability if it otherwise qualifies as equity classification. ASU 2010-13 is effective for fiscal years beginning on or after December 15, 2010, and its adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.
 
In May 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-04. The amendments in this ASU generally represent clarifications of ASC 820, but also include some instances where a particular principle or requirement for measuring fair value or disclosing information about fair value measurements has changed.  This ASU results in common principles and requirements for measuring fair value and for disclosing information about fair value measurements in accordance with GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”).  The amendments in this ASU are to be applied prospectively. For public entities, the amendments are effective during interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. Early adoption by public entities is not permitted.  The Company will adopt the methodologies prescribed by this ASU by the date required and does not anticipate that the ASU will have a material effect on its financial position or results of operations.
 
 
21

 
 
In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-05. Under the amendments in this ASU, an entity has the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. This ASU eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity. The amendments in this ASU do not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income.
 
The amendments in this ASU should be applied retrospectively. For public entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. Early adoption is permitted.  The amendments do not require any transition disclosures. Due to the recent nature of this pronouncement, the Company is evaluating when it will adopt of ASU 2011-05, but it will adopt the ASU retrospectively by the due date.

In September 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-08, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other, which simplifies how an entity is required to test goodwill for impairment. This ASU would allow an entity to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is necessary to perform the two-step quantitative goodwill impairment test. Under the ASU, an entity would not be required to calculate the fair value of a reporting unit unless the entity determines, based on a qualitative assessment, that it is more likely than not that its fair value is less than its carrying amount. The ASU includes a number of factors to consider in conducting the qualitative assessment.  The ASU is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011.  Early adoption is permitted. This standard is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

To the Board of Directors of:
Snap Interactive, Inc. and Subsidiaries
 
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Snap Interactive, Inc. and Subsidiaries as of December 31, 2011 (restated) and 2010, and the related statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ equity and cash flows for the two years ended December 31, 2011 (restated) and 2010. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.
 
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. 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 audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Snap Interactive, Inc. and Subsidiaries as of December 31, 2011 (restated) and 2010 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the two years ended December 31, 2011 (restated) and 2010 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
As discussed in Note 12, the accompanying consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2011, and for the year then ended have been restated.

SNAP INTERACTIVE, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
DECEMBER 31, 2011 AND 2010
 
NOTE 1
ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
(A) Organization

Snap Interactive, Inc. (together with its wholly owned subsidiaries, eTwine, Inc. and Snap Mobile Limted, the “Company”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on July 19, 2005.  eTwine, Inc. was incorporated under the laws of the State of New York on May 7, 2004.  Snap Mobile Limited is a United Kingdom corporation, and was incorporated on September 10, 2009.
 
The Company was organized to operate an online dating and social networking website that is proactive in understanding the singles environment.
 
(B) Principles of Consolidation
 
The accompanying 2011 and 2010 consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Snap Interactive, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiaries, eTwine, Inc. and Snap Mobile Limited.  All intercompany accounts have been eliminated upon consolidation.
 
(C) Use of Estimates
 
In preparing financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”), management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and revenues and expenses during the reported period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.
 
Significant estimates in 2011 and 2010 included management’s evaluation for future chargebacks and refunds on subscription revenue, the valuation of stock options and non-cash capital stock issuances, certain assumptions related to the valuation of the warrant liability, collectability of accounts receivable and the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.  Management evaluates these estimates on an ongoing basis.  Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.   
 
(D) Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
For purposes of the cash flow statements, the Company considers all highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less at the time of purchase to be cash equivalents.
 
(E) Income Taxes
 
The Company accounts for income taxes under the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) No. 740, Income Taxes (“ASC 740”).  Under ASC 740, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled.  Under ASC 740, the effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.

(F) Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment
 
The Company values furniture, fixtures and equipment at cost and depreciates these assets using the straight-line method over their expected useful life. The Company depreciates software and website costs over a three-year useful life, computer equipment over a five-year useful life, furniture over a seven-year useful life and fixtures, including leasehold improvements, over the term of the lease.

SNAP INTERACTIVE, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
 
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
DECEMBER 31, 2011 AND 2010
 
In accordance with ASC No. 360, Property, Plant and Equipment, the Company carries long-lived assets at the lower of the carrying amount or fair value. Impairment is evaluated by estimating future undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use of the asset and its eventual disposition. If the sum of the expected undiscounted future cash flow is less than the carrying amount of the assets, an impairment loss is recognized. Fair value, for purposes of calculating impairment, is measured based on estimated future cash flows, discounted at a market rate of interest.
 
There were no impairment losses recorded during the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010.
 
(G) Intangible Assets
 
In accordance with ASC No. 350, Intangibles, Goodwill and Other, the Company requires that intangible assets with a finite life be amortized over their life and requires that goodwill and intangible assets be reviewed for impairment annually or more frequently if impairment indicators arise.
 
(H) Stock-Based Compensation
 
In accordance with ASC No. 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation (“ASC 718”), the Company measures the compensation costs of stock-based compensation arrangements based on the grant date fair value and recognizes the costs in the financial statements over the period during which employees are required to provide services. Stock-based compensation arrangements include stock options, restricted stock plans, performance-based awards, stock appreciation rights and employee stock purchase plans.  As such, compensation cost is measured on the date of grant at their fair value. Compensation amounts concerning stock options, if any, are amortized over the respective vesting periods of the grant.
 
Equity instruments (“instruments”) issued to persons other than employees are recorded on the basis of the fair value of the instruments, as required by ASC 718.  ASC No. 505, Equity Based Payments to Non-Employees (“ASC 505”), defines the measurement date and recognition period for such instruments.  In general, the measurement date is (a) when a performance commitment, as defined, is reached or (b) when the earlier of (i) the non-employee performance is complete and (ii) the instruments are vested. The measured value related to the instruments is recognized over a period based on the facts and circumstances of each particular grant as defined in ASC 505.
 
(I) Business Segments
 
The Company operates in one segment, and therefore segment information is not presented.
 
(J) Income (Loss) Per Share
 
Basic income (loss) per share is computed based upon the weighted average common shares outstanding as defined by ASC No. 260, Earnings Per Share.  Diluted net income (loss) per share includes the dilutive effects of stock options, warrants and stock equivalents.  To the extent stock options, stock equivalents and warrants are antidilutive, they are excluded from the calculation of diluted income per share.  For the year ended December 31, 2011, 8,162,500 shares issuable upon the exercise of stock options and warrants and 525,555 shares issuable upon the conversion of convertible debt were not included in the computation of diluted loss per share because their inclusion would be antidilutive.  For the year ended December 31, 2010, 6,645,000 shares issuable upon the exercise of stock options and warrants were not included in the computation of loss per share because their inclusion would be antidilutive.

(M) Concentration of Credit Risk
 
At December 31, 2011, accounts receivable of $541,762 consisted of two main types of receivables; receivables from payment processors and receivables from advertising networks.

At December 31, 2011, $477,432 was receivable from payment processors constituting numerous customer charges that occurred prior to the close of the period but not yet remitted by the payment processor to the Company. The settlement of credit card sales typically occurs several days after the date of the charge. The Company generally receives payments from mobile payment processors each month. At December 31, 2011, 33% of accounts receivable was due from one mobile payment processor, 22% was due from one credit card payment processor, 19% was due from a second credit card payment processor and 13% was due from a second mobile payment processor.

At December 31, 2011, $64,330 was receivable primarily from one advertising network.
 
At times the Company has cash in bank accounts in excess of Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) insurance limits. The Company had approximately $1,561,947 and $2,052,693 in excess of FDIC insurance limits as of December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively. The Company also had a credit card holdback receivable of $441,840 as of December 31, 2011, which was held by payment processors and $248,534 of which was not FDIC insured.

The Company recognizes revenue on arrangements in accordance with ASC No. 605, Revenue Recognition.  In all cases, revenue is recognized only when the price is fixed or determinable, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the service is performed and collectability is reasonably assured.
 
The Company has revenue streams consisting of subscriptions, sales of points and advertisements.
 
The Company recognizes revenue from monthly premium subscription fees in the month in which the services are used. Revenues are presented net of refunds, credits and known and estimated credit card chargebacks.   During 2011, subscriptions were offered in durations of varying length from one month to six months – generally in one, three, and six month terms. Twelve-month subscriptions were added in February 2012..
  
Revenues from multi-month subscriptions are recognized over the length of the subscription term rather than when the subscription is purchased. Because a significant amount of the Company’s subscription sales occurred from subscriptions with a term of three or six months, the Company apportions that revenue over the duration of the subscription term even though it is collected in full at the time of purchase. The difference between the gross cash receipts collected and the recognized revenue from those sales during that reporting period will appear as deferred revenue.

The Company also recognized revenue from the direct sale of “points” over two months.  Points could be used in exchange for premium features on our product. Sales of points were discontinued in February 2012.
 
The Company recognizes advertising revenue as earned on a click-through, impression, and registration or subscription basis.  When a user clicks an advertisement (CPC basis), views an advertisement impression (CPM basis), registers for an external website via an advertisement clicked on through the Company’s application (CPA basis), or clicks on an offer to subscribe to premium features on the Company’s applications, the contract amount is recognized as revenue.
 
The Company’s payment processors have established routine reserve accounts to secure the performance of the Company’s obligations under its service agreements, which is standard practice within the payment processing industry.  These reserve accounts withhold a small percentage of the Company’s sales in a segregated account in the form of a six-month rolling reserve.  The funds that are withheld each month are returned to the Company on a monthly basis after six months of being held in the reserve account and any remaining funds will be returned to the Company 90 to 180 days following termination of such agreements.  These funds are classified as credit card holdback receivable and totaled $441,840 and $239,452 at December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively.

(R) Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
In October 2009, the FASB issued an Accounting Standard Update (“ASU”) No. 2009-13 (“ASU 2009-13”), which addresses the accounting for multiple-deliverable arrangements to enable vendors to account for products or services separately rather than as a combined unit and modifies the manner in which the transaction consideration is allocated across the separately identified deliverables. ASU 2009-13 significantly expands the disclosure requirements for multiple-deliverable revenue arrangements. ASU 2009-13 is effective for the first annual reporting period beginning on or after June 15, 2010, and may be applied retrospectively for all periods presented or prospectively to arrangements entered into or materially modified after the adoption date. The adoption of ASU 2009-13 on January 1, 2011 did not have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements upon its required adoption.

In January 2010, the FASB issued guidance to amend the disclosure requirements related to recurring and nonrecurring fair value measurements. The guidance requires new disclosures on the transfers of assets and liabilities between Level 1 (quoted prices in active market for identical assets or liabilities) and Level 2 (significant other observable inputs) of the fair value measurement hierarchy, including the reasons and the timing of the transfers. Additionally, the guidance requires a roll forward of activities on purchases, sales, issuance, and settlements of the assets and liabilities measured using significant unobservable inputs (Level 3 fair value measurements). The guidance became effective for the Company with the reporting period beginning January 1, 2010, except for the disclosure on the roll forward activities for Level 3 fair value measurements, which became effective for the Company with the reporting period beginning July 1, 2011. Other than requiring additional disclosures, adoption of this new guidance did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.

In April 2010, the FASB issued ASU No. 2010-13 (“ASU 2010-13”), which amends ASC 718 – Compensation – Stock Compensation (“ASC 718”) to clarify that a stock-based payment award with an exercise price denominated in the currency of a market in which a substantial portion of the entity’s equity securities trades shall not be considered to contain a market, performance, or service condition. Therefore, such an award is not to be classified as a liability if it otherwise qualifies as equity classification. ASU 2010-13 is effective for fiscal years beginning on or after December 15, 2010, and its adoption did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.
 
In May 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-04. The amendments in this ASU generally represent clarifications of ASC 820, but also include some instances where a particular principle or requirement for measuring fair value or disclosing information about fair value measurements has changed.  This ASU results in common principles and requirements for measuring fair value and for disclosing information about fair value measurements in accordance with GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”).  The amendments in this ASU are to be applied prospectively. For public entities, the amendments are effective during interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. Early adoption by public entities is not permitted.  The Company will adopt the methodologies prescribed by this ASU by the date required and does not anticipate that the ASU will have a material effect on its financial position or results of operations.

In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-05. Under the amendments in this ASU, an entity has the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. This ASU eliminates the option to present the components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders' equity. The amendments in this ASU do not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income.
 
The amendments in this ASU should be applied retrospectively. For public entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. Early adoption is permitted.  The amendments do not require any transition disclosures. Due to the recent nature of this pronouncement, the Company is evaluating when it will adopt of ASU 2011-05, but it will adopt the ASU retrospectively by the due date.

In September 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-08, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other, which simplifies how an entity is required to test goodwill for impairment. This ASU would allow an entity to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is necessary to perform the two-step quantitative goodwill impairment test. Under the ASU, an entity would not be required to calculate the fair value of a reporting unit unless the entity determines, based on a qualitative assessment, that it is more likely than not that its fair value is less than its carrying amount. The ASU includes a number of factors to consider in conducting the qualitative assessment.  The ASU is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011.  Early adoption is permitted. This standard is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.
 
(S) Investments

ASC 320, “Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity Securities” (“ASC 320”), as amended and interpreted, requires that at the time of purchase, designation of a security as held-to-maturity, available-for-sale or trading depending on the ability and intent to hold such security to maturity. Securities classified as trading and available-for-sale are reported at fair value, while securities classified as held-to-maturity are reported at amortized cost. Accordingly, all securities held at December 31, 2011 are designated as held-to-maturity and reported at amortized cost.

ASC 320 provides guidance on determining when an investment is other than temporarily impaired. The Company reviews its equity investment portfolio for any unrealized losses that would be deemed other-than-temporary and require the recognition of an impairment loss in income. If the cost of an investment exceeds its fair value, the Company evaluates, among other factors, general market conditions, the duration and extent to which the fair value is less than cost, and the Company’s intent and ability to hold the investments. Management also considers the type of security, related-industry and sector performance, as well as published investment ratings and analyst reports, to evaluate its portfolio. Once a decline in fair value is determined to be other than temporary, an impairment charge is recorded and a new cost basis in the investment is established. If market, industry, and/or investee conditions deteriorate, the Company may incur future impairments. The Company has not recorded any equity investment losses for the year ended December 31, 2011.
  
(T) Warrant Liability
 
The Company issued common stock warrants in January 2011 in conjunction with an equity financing.  In accordance with Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity (“ASC 480”), the fair value of these warrants is classified as a liability on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets because, according to the warrants' terms, a fundamental transaction could give rise to an obligation of the Company to pay cash to its warrant holders.  Corresponding changes in the fair value of the warrants are recognized in earnings on the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Operations in each subsequent period.

NOTE 4
INVESTMENTS IN MARKETABLE SECURITIES AND FAIR VALUE
 
ASC 820 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value under GAAP, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.  Under GAAP, fair value of such securities is determined based upon a hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair values into three broad levels.
 
The fair value of the Company's financial assets and liabilities reflects the Company's estimate of amounts that it would have received in connection with the sale of the assets or paid in connection with the transfer of the liabilities in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. In connection with measuring the fair value of its assets and liabilities, the Company seeks to maximize the use of observable inputs (market data obtained from sources independent from the Company) and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs (the Company's assumptions about how market participants would price assets and liabilities).
 
The following fair value hierarchy is used to classify assets and liabilities based on the observable inputs and unobservable inputs used in order to value the assets and liabilities:

Level 1:
 
Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities. An active market for an asset or liability is a market in which transactions for the asset or liability occur with sufficient frequency and volume to provide pricing information on an ongoing basis.
     
Level 2:
 
Observable inputs other than Level 1 inputs. Examples of Level 2 inputs include quoted prices in active markets for similar assets or liabilities and quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.
     
Level 3:
 
Unobservable inputs based on the Company's assessment of the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

The following table summarizes those assets and liabilities as of December 31, 2011:
 
   
Level 1: Quoted Prices in Active Markets for Identical Assets
   
Level 2: Quoted Prices in Inactive Markets for Identical Assets
   
Level 3: Significant Unobservable Inputs

The Company issued common stock warrants in January 2011 in conjunction with an equity financing.  In accordance with ASC 480, the fair value of these warrants is classified as a liability on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets because, according to the warrants' terms, a fundamental transaction could give rise to an obligation of the Company to pay cash to its warrant holders.  Corresponding changes in the fair value of the warrants are recognized in earnings on the Company’s Consolidated Statements of Operations in each subsequent period.
 
The Company’s warrant liability is carried at fair value and was classified as Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy due to the use of significant unobservable inputs.  In order to calculate fair value, the Company used a custom model developed with the assistance of an independent third-party valuation expert.  This model, at each measurement date, calculated the fair value of the warrant liability using a Monte-Carlo style simulation, as the value of certain features of the warrant liability would not be captured by the standard Black-Scholes model.

The following table summarizes the values of certain assumptions used in the aforementioned custom model to estimate the fair value of the warrant liability at December 31, 2011:

For the purposes of determining fair value, the Company used “adjusted volatility” in favor of “historical volatility” in its Monte-Carlo simulations.  We calculated the historical realized volatility of the Company using logs of the weekly stock prices over a look-back period corresponding to the remaining contractual term of the Warrants as of each Valuation Date. Due to the lack of marketability of these instruments, management translated a 10% incremental discount rate premium into reduced volatility (“volatility haircut”), to calculate the adjusted historical volatility as of each valuation date.
 
Accounting Standards Update 2011-04, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820) - Amendments to Achieve Common   Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs indicates that “in the absence of a Level 1 input, a reporting entity should apply premiums or discounts when market participants would do so when pricing the asset or liability”.
