Generally, qualified distributors and OEM are already in the business of selling bright field microscopes, equipment for medical analysis, or other laboratory equipment. Under the terms of the Company’s standard distribution agreements, distributors and OEM partners are assigned exclusive or non-exclusive territories or markets and, in turn, commit to purchasing a minimum amount of DigiPath products on either a quarterly or monthly basis.

 

Competitive Conditions

 

The digital pathology market is highly competitive, and many of our competitors have greater resources and better name recognition than we do. We primarily compete on affordability, innovation, and reliability. Our competitors in the digital pathology market include, Aperio, Apollo Telemedicine, D-Metrix, Hamamatsu, Nikon, Olympus, Carl Zeiss, OMNYX (owned by GE and UPMC), Leica (owned by Danaher), Phillips, Sakura, Roche, Claro, and MikroScan.

For advisory services, there are other firms providing such advisory services in the digital pathology space. There is currently an abundant need for such advisory services and we have not seen this as inhibiting our ability to garner new clients. Additionally, on larger engagements, we currently work with other advisory service firms which may be deemed as competitors. Some firms which we identified as clients may provide competitive services.

Industry

 

Digital pathology is the process of creating virtual slides by building digital images of physical tissue samples. Digital pathology allows drug developers, pathologists and researchers to be view tissue images through a computer or over a standard Internet connection and can be stored for later interpretation and archiving; and data mining in support of computer aided quantitative histopathology. The digital pathology markets can be categorized by type of tissue (human or animal) and use (clinical or research).

Digital pathology may improve patient care with a faster diagnosis time, more accurate diagnosis, more reproducible diagnosis, and probable lower medical costs. The improvement areas are a result of digital pathology means to provide faster turnaround time, faster access to sub-specialist, fast access to 2nd opinion, and more cost effective medical diagnosis’s.

Digital pathology is rapidly gaining momentum by reduce laboratory expenses, improve operational efficiency, enhance productivity, and improve treatment decisions and patient care. It is used worldwide in drug development, reference lab, hospital, and academic medical center settings. Applications include education, research, image analysis, archival and retrieval, laboratory information system (“LIS”) integration, secondary consultations, and virtual slide sharing. Today, education and training is the most common use for labs using digital pathology. The biggest barrier to more clinical use is the cost of scanning digital slides, which does not eliminate the need to first prepare glass slides.

Human Pathology

We estimate a total of 16,500 pathologists in the United States, with approximately two-thirds or 11,000 practicing anatomic pathology. These pathologists generally practice within one or more market segments, including hospital based pathology labs, integrated health systems, and commercial and academic research.

Pathologists focusing on human disease study the origin, course and indicators of disease. Pathology divides into clinical pathology the analysis of fluids such as urine and blood and DigiPath's market, anatomic pathology the analysis of tissue. Clinical pathology market is dominated by large national laboratories that use large-scale automation and is generally a high volume, low margin business. The technology for the automation of anatomic pathology has lagged that of clinical pathology. As a result, anatomic pathology remains a less consolidated and higher margin industry.

Animal (Veterinary) Pathology

Animal pathology includes testing in research and clinical treatment of both pets and livestock. Animal pathology for treatment is mainly conducted by labs providing services to veterinary practices. The majority of animal pathology is conducted by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies for drug development.

The dynamics of veterinary pathology for treatment resemble human clinical pathology. Veterinary pathologists seek to improve access to clinical specialists: and aim to improve management and archiving of data workflow and tissue analysis.

The key market segments in animal pathology are pharmaceutical toxicology groups, academic and government research, contract research organizations (“CROs”), and biotechnology firms.

Digital Pathology Applications

Digital pathology products share common uses in both human and animal pathology, including consultation, communication and collaboration, education and publication, archiving and management, workflow, and analysis, as described below.

Consultation, Communication and Collaboration

Pathologists frequently consult with other pathologists and specialists in carrying out their daily work. There are often delays in consulting due to the transportation of slides or having to travel to distant locations in order to meet face-to-face. DigiPath's products allow sharing of images real time, eliminating the need for slide transportation or travel. Pathologists and specialists are able to simultaneously view and manipulate the slides and provide consultation in real-time. In addition, communication is improved as multiple pathologists and specialists can view and manipulate the same slide simultaneously.

Education and Publication

Tissue images are critical to pathology publications and instruction. Traditional publications are limited to the inclusion of a snapshot of one location on the slide or references to glass slide archives. DigiPath's products allow whole slides to be cited in publications and accessed in a digital format, improving the availability of high quality samples and facilitating sample access.

Archiving and Management

Viewing and accessing multiple tissue samples is critical to anatomic pathology workflow. Typically, tissue images are incomplete and stored in cumbersome formats with no efficient links to associated data. DigiPath's products under development are designed to link a digital slide together with relevant data in a flexible and easily accessible digital archive.

 

Employees and Consultants

 

We presently have no employees apart from our management. Currently, we utilize numerous consultants to gather new business leads and staff engagements. We expect to grow the number of our employees as we bring on new clients and there is stability in our revenues.

 

Regulatory Issues

The United States Food and Drug Administration (the "FDA") regulates design, testing, manufacturing, labeling, distribution, marketing, sales and service of image analysis products and services. Such products and services are marketed in the U.S. according to premarket notifications to the FDA under Section 510(k) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. Unless an exemption applies, each image analysis product that we wish to market in the U.S. must first receive either 510(k) clearance or premarket approval from the FDA.

Certain of DigiPath's products can be considered medical devices and subject to regulation by the United States Food and Drug Administration ("FDA"). The FDA categorizes medical devices into three classes; these classes are referred to as Class I, Class II, and Class III.

Class I devices are subject to the least regulatory control. General controls include provisions that relate to adulteration; misbranding; device registration and listing; premarket notification; banned devices; notification, including repair, replacement, or refund; records and reports; restricted devices; and good manufacturing practices. Class I devices are not intended for use in supporting or sustaining life or to be of substantial importance in preventing impairment to human health, and they may not present a potential unreasonable risk of illness or injury.

Class II devices are those for which general controls alone are insufficient to assure safety and effectiveness, and existing methods are available to provide such assurances. In addition to complying with general controls, Class II devices are also subject to special controls. Devices in Class II are held to a higher level of assurance than Class I devices, and are designed to perform as indicated without causing injury or harm to patient or user.

A Class III device is one for which insufficient information exists to assure safety and effectiveness solely through the general or special controls sufficient for Class I or Class II devices. Such a device needs premarket approval, a scientific review to ensure the device's safety and effectiveness, in addition to the general controls of Class I. Class III devices are usually those that support or sustain human life, are of substantial importance in preventing impairment of human health, or which present a potential, unreasonable risk of illness or injury

Currently, the Company’s products and services are not registered with FDA. The Company is marketing its digital pathology solutions as Research Use Only, and specifically for applications for 2nd option, consultations, education, and research.

There can be no assurances that the FDA may state that Company is required to achieve Class 1, 2 or 3 registrations. The Company can make no assurance that it can achieve a Class 1, 2, or 3 certification. Failure to obtain this certification may limit the use of this product in the market. Additionally, delays in obtaining clearances or approvals will adversely affect our ability to market and sell our products and services and may subject us to significant regulatory fines or penalties, which would result in a decline in revenue and profitability.

Intellectual Property, Trade Names, Trademarks and Service Marks

 

Intellectual property rights that apply to our various services include copyrights, trade secrets, and trademarks. We also protect certain details about our processes and strategies as trade secrets, keeping confidential the information that we believe provides us with a competitive advantage. We have ongoing programs designed to maintain the confidentiality of such information. We rely on trade secrets, know-how and continuing knowledge to achieve and thereafter maintain a competitive advantage with respect to the Digital Pathology consulting. Although we have entered into and we intend to enter into confidentiality and invention agreements with employees, consultants, certain potential customers and advisors, no assurance can be given that such agreements will be honored or that we will be able to effectively protect our rights to our unpatented trade secrets and know-how.

 

We may, as circumstances require, develop and implement DigiPath trademarks and/or service marks which will enhance a customer's ability to identify the Company, as well as the products and services to be offered by the Company. We have been granted a registered trademark for DigiPath from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

 

Our overall policy will be to pursue registration of our marks whenever possible and to oppose vigorously any infringement of its marks. There can be no assurance that if and when we develop and implement our trademarks and/or service marks, that such trademarks and/or service marks will afford protection against competitors with similar products and services. There can also be no assurance that our trademarks and/or service marks will not be infringed upon or designed around by others, or that we can adequately prosecute or defend any infringements.

 

DigiPath and Olympus America Inc. have entered into a nonexclusive worldwide agreement allowing DigiPath and its OEM partners to access an extensive portfolio of Olympus patents in the field of virtual microscopy and digital pathology. The patents involved in the licensing agreement cover methods, software and technology for creating, storing and delivering virtual microscopy images. Virtual microscope slides enable professionals to review biopsies and other pathology images without handling traditional glass slides, and allow doctors to share high resolution digital microscope images over telecommunication networks for second opinion consultation, tumor board review, and image archiving functions. From our understanding, Omnyx (owned by GE and UPMC), Leica (owned by Danaher), Aperio, Phillips Netherlands, and Hamamatsu have licensed sale Olympus patent portfolio.

Our success is heavily dependent upon the development and protection of proprietary technology, and licensing of others, including Olympus America, patent portfolio. We rely on patents, trade secrets, copyrights, know-how, trademarks, license agreements and contractual provisions to establish our intellectual property rights and protect our products and services. These legal means, however, afford only limited protection and may not adequately protect our rights. Litigation may be necessary in the future to enforce our intellectual property rights, protect our trade secrets or determine the validity and scope of the proprietary rights of others. Litigation could result in substantial costs and diversion of resources and management attention.

We cannot assure you that competitors or other parties have not filed or in the future will not file applications for, or have not received or in the future will not receive, patents or obtain additional proprietary rights relating to products and services or processes used or proposed to be used by us. In that case, our competitive position could be harmed and we may be required to obtain licenses to patents or proprietary rights of others.

In addition, the laws of some of the countries in which our products and services are or may be sold may not protect our products and services and intellectual property to the same extent as U.S. laws, if at all. We may be unable to protect our rights in proprietary technology in these countries.

For certain products, DigiPath OEMs the product, components, or other materials, and market under DigiPath brand names, or the OEM brand names. Where it makes economic sense, DigiPath invests in research & development to replace such OEM products. DigiPath cannot be assured that OEM vendors will continue to support such OEM agreements. In the event that OEM partner stops supporting OEM arrangement, DigiPath may be delayed or could not find a replacement, and as such revenues, and timing or revenues maybe impacted.

Item 1A.  Risk Factors

 

The following important factors, and the important factors described elsewhere in this report or in our other filings with the SEC, could affect (and in some cases have affected) our results and could cause our results to be materially different from estimates or expectations.  Other risks and uncertainties may also affect our results or operations adversely.  The following and these other risks could materially and adversely affect our business, operations, results or financial condition.

 

An investment in the Company is highly speculative in nature and involves an extremely high degree of risk.

We have been in existence for a short period of time and expect to have losses until operations increase.

We have been in existence for a short period of time. Thus, we have a limited operating history upon which investors may rely to evaluate our prospects and have only a preliminary business plan upon which investors may consider to evaluate our prospects. Such prospects must be considered in light of the problems, expenses, delays and complications associated with a business that seeks to commence more significant revenue operations. We commenced operations on October 5, 2010 as such we have no historical operating history. We expect to continue to incur operating losses until such time, if ever, as we are able to achieve sufficient levels of revenue from operations. We anticipate that our existing cash and cash equivalents will not be sufficient to fund our business needs. Our ability to commence revenue operations and achieve profitability will depend on our obtaining additional capital, entering into satisfactory agreements with strategic partners, acquiring the Digital Pathology consulting and finding customers for such technology. There can be no assurance that we will ever generate revenues or achieve profitability. Accordingly, the extent of future losses and the time required to achieve profitability, if ever, cannot be predicted at this point.

Investors may lose all of their investment in us.

Investment in us involves a high degree of risk. Investors may never recoup all or part of or realized any return on their investment. Accordingly, investors may lose all of their investment and must be prepared to do so.

There is currently no trading market for our common stock and a purchaser of our shares may never be able to resell them.

As of September 30, 2012, 5,119,650 of the 5,516,400 outstanding shares of common stock are “restricted securities” as defined under Rule 144 promulgated under the Securities Act and may only be sold pursuant to an effective registration statement or an exemption from registration, if available. The SEC has adopted final rules amending Rule 144 which became effective on February 15, 2008. There can be no assurance that we will ever meet these conditions and any purchases of our shares are subject to these restrictions on resale. A purchase of our shares may never be available for resale.

We will continue to incur the expenses of complying with public company reporting requirements.

We have an obligation to continue to comply with the applicable reporting requirements of the Exchange Act even though compliance with such reporting requirements is economically burdensome.

We may need additional financing the failure of to raise such financing will have a material adverse effect on our business.

Our cash requirements may vary materially from those now planned depending on numerous factors, including our ability to obtain the Digital Pathology consulting, finding customers to use such technology and competition. If are not able to attract and retain customers, we may not have sufficient funds to institute our business plan. We therefore would need to raise additional funds to finance our capital requirements through new financings to achieve the level of operations we anticipate. Such financings could include equity financing, which may be dilutive to stockholders, or debt financing, which would likely restrict our ability to borrow from other sources. In addition, such securities may contain rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of the rights of our current stockholders. We do not have any commitments for additional financing. There can be no assurance that additional funds will be available on terms attractive to us, or at all. If adequate funds are not available, we may be required to curtail our development of the Digital Pathology consulting and/or otherwise materially reduce our operations. Any inability to raise adequate funds could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operation and financial condition.

-7-
 

 

Our success will, to a large extent, depend on and experience of our officers and directors.

Our officers and directors will be responsible for the management and control of the Company. Our success will, to a large extent, depend on the quality of the management provided by Eric Stoppenhagen, our CEO. Although our officers and directors believe that they have the ability to manage the Company, they can give no assurance that their efforts will result in success. Stockholders have no right or power to take part in the management of the Company. Accordingly, no person should purchase any of the Shares offered hereby unless he is willing to entrust all aspects of the management of the Company to the officers and directors.

If we borrow money to expand our business, we will face the risks of leverage.

We anticipate that we may in the future incur debt for financing our growth. Our ability to borrow funds will depend upon a number of factors, including the condition of the financial markets. The risk of loss in such circumstances is increased because we would be obligated to meet fixed payment obligations on specified dates regardless of our revenue. If we do not meet our debt service payments when due, we may sustain the loss of our equity investment in any of our assets securing such debt upon the foreclosure on such debt by a secured lender.

Our common stock is considered a “penny stock,” any investment in our shares is considered to be a high-risk investment and is subject to restrictions on marketability.

Our common stock is currently listed on the OTC Bulletin Board and OTC Markets and is considered a "penny stock." The OTC Bulletin Board and OTC Markets are generally regarded as a less efficient trading market than the NASDAQ Capital Market or Global Markets or the New York Stock Exchange.

 

The SEC has adopted rules that regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in “penny stocks.” Penny stocks generally are equity securities with a price of less than $1.00 (other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ system, provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in such securities is provided by the exchange or system). The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prepared by the SEC, which specifies information about penny stocks and the nature and significance of risks of the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and any salesperson in the transaction, and monthly account statements indicating the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account. In addition, the penny stock rules require that, prior to effecting a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction. These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the trading activity in the secondary market for our common stock.

Since our common stock is subject to the regulations applicable to penny stocks, the market liquidity for our common stock could be adversely affected because the regulations on penny stocks could limit the ability of broker-dealers to sell our common stock and thus your ability to sell our common stock in the secondary market in the future.

We have additional securities available for issuance, including preferred stock, which if issued could adversely affect the rights of the holders of our common stock.

Our articles of incorporation authorize the issuance of 50,000,000 shares of common stock and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock. The common stock and preferred stock can be issued by our board of directors without stockholder approval. Accordingly, our stockholders will be dependent upon the judgment of our management in connection with the future issuance and sale of shares of our common and preferred stock, in the event that buyers can be found therefor. Any future issuances of common stock would further dilute the percentage ownership of our Company held by the public stockholders.

Authorization of 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock can adversely affect the voting power and other rights of common stock owners.

Our Certificate of Incorporation authorizes the issuance of up to 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock with designations, rights and preferences determined from time to time by its Board of Directors. Accordingly, our Board of Directors is empowered, without stockholder approval, to issue preferred stock with dividend, liquidation, conversion, voting, or other rights which could adversely affect the voting power or other rights of the holders of the common stock. In the event of issuance, the preferred stock could be utilized, under certain circumstances, as a method of discouraging, delaying or preventing a change in control of the Company. Although we have no present intention to issue any shares of its authorized preferred stock, there can be no assurance that the Company will not do so in the future.

-8-
 

Indemnification of officers and directors would allow for only limited recourse against our officers and directors.

The Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws of the Company contain broad indemnification and liability limiting provisions regarding our officers, directors and employees, including the limitation of liability for certain violations of fiduciary duties. Stockholders of the Company therefore will have only limited recourse against the individuals.

Risks Related to the Industry and Our Operations

Our business venture into the digital pathology business is subject to a high risk of failure.

Our business venture into the Digital Pathology consulting is at a very early stage and is subject to a high risk of failure. In order to establish commercial viability, we will have to acquire a large customer base. There can be no assurances that we will be able to do so.

We depend on third-party licenses for our products and services.

We rely on certain software technology which we license from third parties and use in our products and services to perform key functions and provide additional functionality. Because our products and services incorporate software developed and maintained by third parties, we are, to a certain extent, dependent upon such third parties' ability to maintain or enhance their current products and services, to develop new products and services on a timely and cost-effective basis, and to respond to emerging industry standards and other technological changes. Further, these third-party technology licenses may not always be available to us on commercially reasonable terms or at all.

If our agreements with third-party vendors are not renewed or the third-party software fails to address the needs of our software products and services, we would be required to find alternative software products and services or technologies of equal performance or functionality. We cannot assure that we would be able to replace the functionality provided by third-party software if we lose the license to this software, it becomes obsolete or incompatible with future versions of our products and services or is otherwise not adequately maintained or updated.

Certain of our customers rely on the availability of third-party reimbursement or third-party funding for the purchase of our products and services. Failure of sufficient reimbursement from third-party payors or sufficient funding could cause our sales and the future potential growth of our business to decline.

 

Hospitals and other healthcare institutions in the U.S. that purchase our products and services generally rely on third-party payors and other sources for reimbursement of healthcare costs to reimburse all or part of the cost of the procedures in which our products and services are used. If hospitals and other healthcare institutions are unable to obtain adequate reimbursement from third-party payors for the procedures in which our products and services or products and services currently under development are intended to be used, our sales and future growth of our business could be adversely affected. We cannot estimate what amount of our product is eligible for reimbursement approval. In addition, changes in the healthcare system may affect the reimbursability of future products and services.

 

Market acceptance of our products and services and products and services under development in countries outside of the U.S. is also dependent on availability of reimbursement within prevailing healthcare payment systems in those countries. Reimbursement and healthcare payment systems in international markets vary significantly by country, and include both government-sponsored healthcare and private insurance. We cannot assure you that we will be able to obtain international reimbursement approvals in a timely manner, if at all. Failure to receive international reimbursement approvals could harm the market acceptance of our products and services in the international markets in which such approvals are sought.

 

Other consumers in industries such as pathology, pharmaceutical and biotechnology that purchase our products and services generally rely on funding or grants from governments and private foundations to fund the purchase of our products and services. If such consumers are unable to obtain adequate funding sources for the purchase of our products and services, our sales and future growth of our business could be adversely affected.

 

The marketing and sale of our future products and services will require regulatory approval and on-going certifications. Failure to obtain and maintain required regulatory approvals and certifications could prevent or delay our ability to market and sell our future products and services and may subject us to significant regulatory fines or penalties.

 

The FDA regulates design, testing, manufacturing, labeling, distribution, marketing, sales and service of digital image analysis products and services. Such products and services are marketed in the U.S. according to premarket notifications to the FDA under Section 510(k) of the Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. Unless an exemption applies, each digital image analysis product that we wish to market in the U.S. must first receive either 510(k) clearance or premarket approval from the FDA. The process of obtaining required regulatory approval or clearance can be lengthy, expensive and uncertain. Moreover, regulatory clearance or approval, if granted, may include significant limitations on the indicated uses for which a product may be marketed.

-9-
 

 

 

 

Failure to comply with applicable requirements in the United States can result in fines, recall or seizure of products and services, total or partial suspension of production, withdrawal of existing product approvals or clearances, refusal to approve or clear new applications or notices and criminal prosecution.

 

Our products and services may be subject to similar regulation in other countries. Sales of our products and services outside the United States are subject to foreign regulatory requirements that vary from country to country. The time required to obtain approvals from foreign countries may be longer or shorter than that required for FDA approval, and requirements for foreign licensing may differ from FDA requirements.

 

We are uncertain of our ability to protect our trade secrets the loss of which would negatively impact our competitive advantage.

 

We rely on trade secrets, know-how and continuing knowledge to achieve and thereafter maintain a competitive advantage with respect to the Digital Pathology consulting. Although we have entered into and we intend to enter into confidentiality and invention agreements with employees, consultants, certain potential customers and advisors, no assurance can be given that such agreements will be honored or that we will be able to effectively protect our rights to our unpatented trade secrets and know-how. Moreover, no assurance can be given that others will not independently develop substantially equivalent techniques or otherwise gain access to our trade secrets and know-how.

Our failure to develop our limited marketing capabilities would have a material adverse effect on our business.

We have limited marketing capabilities and resources to expend on marketing the Digital Pathology consulting. In order to achieve market penetration we will have to undertake significant efforts and expenditures to create awareness of, and demand for, our Digital Pathology consulting and products. Our ability to penetrate the market and build our customer base will be substantially dependent on our marketing efforts, including our ability to encourage customers to adopt Digital Pathology. No assurance can be given that we will succeed. Our failure to successfully develop our marketing capabilities, both internally and through third-party joint ventures, would have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.

We are dependent on key personnel, the loss of whose services could materially adversely impact our business and prospects.

Our success in the Digital Pathology consulting business will be largely dependent upon the efforts of the principals who are developing the Digital Pathology consulting business and the employees hired by us to assist such principals in developing such customer base. The loss of the services of any of these individuals could have a material adverse effect on our digital pathology consulting business and prospects. There can be no assurance that we will be able to retain the services of such individuals in the future. Our success will be dependent upon our ability to hire and retain qualified technical, research, management, marketing and financial personnel. We will compete with other companies with greater financial and other resources for such personnel. Although we have not to date experienced difficulty in attracting qualified personnel, there can be no assurance that it will be able to retain the personnel it hires or acquire additional qualified personnel as and when needed.

Control by key stockholders limits investors’ ability to participate in our management.

Our largest stockholder, Eric Stoppenhagen, represents approximately 94% of the voting power of our outstanding capital stock. If the Company sells additional shares will still have only limited rights to participate in our management.

Our business plan will take a significant amount of time to implement.

The research and development related to the Digital Pathology consulting and our business plan will take a significant amount of time to implement. Investors must be prepared to hold the Shares as a long term investment as the value of the Shares will not increase in value in the short term, if ever.

Absence of cash dividends may affect the investment value of our common stock.

The Board of Directors has not and does not anticipate paying cash dividends on the common stock of the Company for the foreseeable future and intends to retain any future earnings to finance the growth of the Company’s business. Payment of dividends, if any, will depend, among other factors, on earnings, capital requirements and the general operating and financial conditions of the Company, as well as legal limitations on the payment of dividends out of paid-in capital.

Common or Preferred Stock.

Common Stock

We are authorized to issue up to 50,000,000 shares of our common stock, $.001 par value per share (“common stock”), of which 5,526,400 shares of common stock are currently outstanding. Voting rights for the common stock are not cumulative. Upon our liquidation, dissolution or winding up, our assets, after the payment of liabilities, will be distributed pro rata to the holders of the common stock after distribution is made of any class of stock with priority over the common stock. The holders of the common stock do not have preemptive rights to subscribe for additional shares of common stock. The shares of common stock presently outstanding are fully paid and non-assessable. Holders of common stock are entitled to share equally in dividends when, as and if declared by our Board of Directors out of funds legally available.

-11-
 

 

Preferred Stock

We are authorized to issue 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock. We have not issued any shares of our preferred stock. The preferred stock can be issued by, and the terms of the preferred stock, including dividend rights, voting rights, liquidation preference and conversion rights can generally be determined by, our board of directors without stockholder approval. Any issuance of preferred stock could adversely affect the rights of the holders of common stock by, among other things, establishing preferential dividends, liquidation rights or voting powers. Accordingly, our stockholders will be dependent upon the judgment of our management in connection with the future issuance and sale of shares of our common stock and preferred stock, in the event that buyers can be found therefor. Any future issuances of common stock or preferred stock would further dilute the percentage ownership of our Company held by the public stockholders. We currently maintain a class of blank check preferred stock, over which our Board may, from time to time, file certificates of designation of rights and preferences for a series of preferred stock.  The certificate of designation will establish the voting powers, designations, preferences, limitations, restrictions, conversion features and relative rights of each series.  The preferred stock may be issued for consideration as determined by the Board without any action from the stockholders.  The purpose of the preferred class is to grant preferential rights to certain persons for adequate consideration.   The creation of a preferred class of stock does not have an immediate effect on stockholders of our common stock. Each stockholder retains the same proportionate interest in our company as he/she/it held prior to the establishment of the preferred stock.  However, when preferred stock is issued in the future, the preferential rights of the preferred stock must be satisfied before the holders of common stock are entitled to receive dividends or to participate pro rata in any distribution of assets available for distribution upon a liquidation of our company.

Dividends

Dividends, if any, will be contingent upon the Company’s revenues and earnings, if any, capital requirements and financial conditions. The payment of dividends, if any, will be within the discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors. The Company presently intends to retain all earnings, if any, for use in its business operations and accordingly, the Board of Directors does not anticipate declaring any dividends prior to a business combination.

Recent Sale of Unregistered Securities.

 

On October 8, 2010, the Company issued 5,000,000 restricted shares of the Company’s common stock for services rendered valued at $5,000 to Eric Stoppenhagen, our CEO.

 

In January 1, 2011, we issued 10,000 restricted shares of the Company’s common stock for services rendered to an unrelated party. There was no cash given in exchange for these shares. . The issuance of the shares of the Company’s common stock to this unrelated party were intended to be exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), pursuant to Section 4(2) thereof and Rule 506 of Regulation D (“Regulation D”) as promulgated by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) under the Securities Act, as the Shares were sold to accredited investors and less and up to 35 other purchases and were not sold through any general solicitation or advertisement.

 

On March 23, 2011, the Company completed a private placement offering to forty-seven accredited and unaccredited investors pursuant to which the Company sold an aggregate of 286,750 shares of the Company’s common stock resulting in gross proceeds of $28,675 to the Company. The issuance of the shares of the Company’s common stock to the Investors were intended to be exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), pursuant to Section 4(2) thereof and Rule 506 of Regulation D (“Regulation D”) as promulgated by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) under the Securities Act, as the Shares were sold to accredited investors and less and up to 35 other purchases and were not sold through any general solicitation or advertisement.

 

In July 1, 2011, we issued 130,000 restricted shares of the Company’s common stock for services rendered to an unrelated party. There was no cash given in exchange for these shares. .

Overview

 

DigiPath, a Nevada corporation, was incorporated on October 5, 2010 in Nevada.

During January, 2011, the Company no longer was considered a development stage company as it began recognizing revenue for its advisory services to a handful of healthcare clients.

On February 14, 2011, we entered into a Revolving Promissory Note (the “Revolving Note”) with NYX Capital Advisors, Inc. (“NYX”). Eric Stoppenhagen, our CEO, has voting and investment control over the securities owned by NYX Capital Advisors, Inc. as he is the sole owner.   Under the terms of the Revolving Note, NYX agreed to advance to the Company, from time to time and at the request of the Company, amounts up to an aggregate of $500,000 until March 31, 2013.  All advances shall be paid on or before March 31, 2013 and interest shall accrue from the date of any advances on any principal amount withdrawn, and on accrued and unpaid interest thereon, at the rate of eight percent (8%) per annum, compounded annually. The Company’s obligations under the Revolving Note will accelerate upon a bankruptcy event of the Company, any default by the Company of its payment obligations under the Revolving Note or the breach by the Company of any provision of any material agreement between the Company and the noteholder. As of September 30, 2012, $326,784 was deemed outstanding under the Revolving Note.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

Refer to the notes to the financial statements for a complete description of recent accounting standards which we have not yet been required to implement and may be applicable to our operation, as well as those significant accounting standards that have been adopted during the current year.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The preparation of our financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("US GAAP") requires management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amount of expenses during the reporting period. On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates which are based on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. The result of these evaluations forms the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the reported amount of expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions. The following accounting policies require significant management judgments and estimates:

-14-
 

 

 

 

We account for our business acquisitions under the purchase method of accounting in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Codification Topic 805, "Business Combinations." The total cost of acquisitions is allocated to the underlying net assets, based on their respective estimated fair values. The excess of the purchase price over the estimated fair value of the tangible net assets acquired is recorded as intangibles. Determining the fair value of assets acquired and liabilities assumed requires management's judgment and often involves the use of significant estimates and assumptions, including assumptions with respect to future cash inflows and outflows, discount rates, asset lives, and market multiples, among other items.

 

We base our estimates on historical experience and various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. There can be no assurance that actual results will not differ from these estimates.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

 

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of DigiPath, Inc.

 

We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of DigiPath, Inc. (the “Company”) as of September 30, 2012 and 2011 and the related statement of operations, changes in stockholders' equity (deficit) and cash flows for the years then ended. 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 audit.

 

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit includes consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of DigiPath, Inc. as of September 30, 2012 and 2011, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

DIGIPATH, INC.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

September 30, 2012

 

NOTE 1.    BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND ORGANIZATION

 

Current Operations and Background — DigiPath, Inc. (“DigiPath®,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” or “us”) was incorporated in Nevada on October 5, 2010. During January, 2011, the Company no longer was considered a development stage company as it began recognizing revenue for its advisory services to a handful of healthcare clients.

DigiPath, Inc. provides the next generation of affordable, innovative, and reliable digital pathology solutions and advisory services for clients involved within healthcare. Services range the full breadth of management operations for marketing, product development, sales, outreach, operations, customer service, regulatory, and financial. Clients include Manufacturer (hardware and software), Distribution & Service Firms, Laboratories (reference, hospital owned, independent), Private Pathology Practices (associated with hospitals), and Centers of Excellence.

Basis of Presentation - The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) as promulgated in the United States of America.

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Use of Estimates –

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

Income Taxes –

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC 740, Income Taxes ("ASC 740"), which requires the recognition of deferred tax liabilities and assets at currently enacted tax rates for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns. A valuation allowance is recognized to reduce the net deferred tax asset to an amount that is more likely than not to be realized. 

ASC 740 provides guidance on the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in a company's financial statements. ASC 740 requires a company to determine whether it is more likely than not that a tax position will be sustained upon examination based upon the technical merits of the position. If the more-likely-than-not threshold is met, a company must measure the tax position to determine the amount to recognize in the financial statements.

The Company performed a review of its material tax positions. During the period from October 5, 2010 through September 30, 2012, there were no increases or decreases in unrecognized tax benefits as a result of tax positions taken during period, there were no decreases in unrecognized tax benefits relating to settlements with taxing authorities, and there were no reductions to unrecognized tax benefits as a result of a lapse of the applicable statute of limitations. As of September 30, 2012, the Company had no unrecognized tax benefits that, if recognized, would affect the effective tax rate. As of September 30, 2011, the Company has no tax positions for which it is reasonably possible that the total amounts of unrecognized tax benefits will significantly increase or decrease within 12 months of the reporting date.

The Company has elected to classify any interest or penalties recognized with respect to any unrecognized tax benefits as income taxes. During the period from October 5, 2010 through September 30, 2012, the Company did not recognize any amounts for interest or penalties with respect to any unrecognized tax benefits. As of September 30, 2012, no amounts for interest or penalties with respect to any unrecognized tax benefits have been accrued.

Cash and cash equivalents –

Cash includes all highly liquid instruments with an original maturity of three months or less as of September 30, 2012. The Company had no cash equivalents as of September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011.

-23-
 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments –

The Company adopted ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (ASC 820). ASC 820 defines fair value, establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurement and enhances disclosure requirements for fair value measures. The three levels are defined as follows:

Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.
Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.
Level 3 inputs to valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair measurement.

The Company had no such assets or liabilities recorded to be valued on the basis above at September 30, 2012.

Equipment -

Equipment is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Cost represents the purchase price of the asset and other costs incurred to bring the asset into its existing use. Depreciation is provided on a straight-line basis over the assets' estimated useful lives. The useful lives are as follows: machinery 2 to 5 years and trade show booths 3 to 5 years. Maintenance or repairs are charged to expense as incurred. Upon sale or disposition, the historically recorded asset cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and the net amount less proceeds from disposal is charged or credited to other income / expense.

Inventory

Inventory is valued at the lower of cost or market. Cost is determined on a first-in, first-out method.

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with ASC 605, Revenue Recognition, Overall, SEC Materials (ASC 605). ASC 605 requires that four basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred or services rendered; (3) the fee is fixed and determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured. This occurs when the services for our advisory services are completed in accordance with the contracts we have with healthcare clients. In connection with our services arrangements, we are paid in advance for services which are incurred. These amounts are classified as deferred revenue and amortized over the over term of the agreement.

Net Loss Per Share –

Basic loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss applicable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period. Diluted loss per share is computed by dividing the loss applicable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding plus the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if all dilutive potential common shares had been issued, using the treasury stock method. The Company currently has no dilutive securities and as such, basic and diluted loss per share are the same for the period presented.

Stock Compensation for Services Rendered –

The Company accounts for equity instruments issued to non-employees in accordance with the provisions of ASC 718 Stock Compensation (ASC 718) and ASC 505-50, Equity, Equity-Based Payments to Non-employees (ASC 505-50). All transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. The measurement date of the fair value of the equity instrument issued is the earlier of the date on which the counterparty's performance is complete or the date on which it is probable that performance will occur.

Recently Accounting Guidance Adopted -

 

In May 2011, the FASB issued guidance to amend the accounting and disclosure requirements on fair value measurements. The new guidance limits the highest-and-best-use measure to nonfinancial assets, permits certain financial assets and liabilities with offsetting positions in market or counterparty credit risks to be measured at a net basis, and provides guidance on the applicability of premiums and discounts. Additionally, the new guidance expands the disclosures on Level 3 inputs by requiring quantitative disclosure of the unobservable inputs and assumptions, as well as description of the valuation processes and the sensitivity of the fair value to changes in unobservable inputs. ASU 2011-04 is effective prospectively for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2011. Other than requiring additional disclosures, we do not anticipate material impacts on our financial statements upon adoption.

 

In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-05, “Comprehensive income”. The new guidance allows an entity to present components of net income and other comprehensive income in one continuous statement, referred to as the statement of comprehensive income, or in two separate, but consecutive statements. The new guidance eliminates the current option to report other comprehensive income and its components in the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity. While the new guidance changes the presentation of comprehensive income, there are no changes to the components that are recognized in net income or other comprehensive income from that of current accounting guidance. The adoption of this new guidance does not have material impacts on our financial statements.

 

In September 2011, the FASB issued guidance on testing goodwill for impairment. The new guidance provides an entity the option to first perform a qualitative assessment to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. If an entity determines that this is the case, it is required to perform the currently prescribed two-step goodwill impairment test to identify potential goodwill impairment and measure the amount of goodwill impairment loss to be recognized for that reporting unit (if any). If an entity determines that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, the two-step goodwill impairment test is not required. The new guidance is effective for us beginning July 1, 2012 and adoption of this accounting guidance does not have a material impact to our financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In July, 2012, the FASB issued guidance on testing for indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment. The new guidance provides an entity to simplify the testing for a drop in value of intangible assets such as trademarks, patents, and distribution rights. The amended standard reduces the cost of accounting for indefinite-lived intangible assets, especially in cases where the likelihood of impairment is low. The changes permit businesses and other organizations to first use subjective criteria to determine if an intangible asset has lost value. The amendments to U.S. GAAP will be effective for fiscal years starting after September 15, 2012. The Company’s adoption of this accounting guidance does not have a material impact on its financial statements and related disclosures.

NOTE 8 – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

Common Stock - Common stock consists of $0.001 par value, 50,000,000 shares authorized, 5,516,400 shares issued and outstanding as of June 30, 2012. In October 2010, the Company issued 5,000,000 shares of its common stock to the Company’s President, for services performed. In January 2011, the Company issued 10,000 shares of its common stock for services. On March 23, 2011, the Company completed a private placement offering to certain investors (“Investors”) pursuant to which the Company sold an aggregate of 286,750 shares of the Company’s common stock resulting in gross proceeds of $28,675 to the Company. In quarter ending September 30, 2011, the Company issued 130,000 shares of its common stock for services received by an unrelated party. In quarter ending March 31, 2012, the Company issued 43,500 shares of its common stock for services received by an unrelated party for $5,350.

Stock Incentive Plan

On the March 5, 2012, the action to adopt our 2012 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2012 Plan”) was approved by written consent of holders representing approximately 91% of the outstanding shares of our common stock. On March 5, 2012, our board of directors approved the 2012 Plan.

-26-
 

 

The approval of the 2012 Plan required such board approval and the affirmative vote of a majority of our outstanding shares of common stock. Such requirements have been met so no vote or further action of our stockholders is required to approve the adoption of the 2012 Plan. Our board of directors approved the 2012 Plan to ensure that we have adequate ways in which to provide stock based compensation to our directors, officers, employees and consultants. Our board of directors believes that the ability to grant stock-based compensation, such as stock options and stock grants, is important to our future success. The grant of such stock-based compensation can motivate high levels of performance and provide an effective means of recognizing employee and consultant contributions to our success. In addition, stock-based compensation can be valuable in recruiting and retaining highly qualified technical and other key personnel who are in great demand, as well as rewarding and providing incentives to our current employees and consultants.

Because awards under the 2012 Plan are discretionary, benefits or amounts that will hereinafter be received by or allocated to our chief executive officer, our named executive officers, our current executive officers as a group, our non-executive directors as a group, and our employees who are not executive officers, are not presently determinable.

The principal terms and features of the 2012 Plan are summarized below. The following is a summary description of the salient terms, conditions and features of the 2012 Plan and is qualified by the text of the plan.

General; Types of Awards; Number of Shares

The 2012 Plan provides for the grant of options to purchase shares of common stock, restricted stock, stock appreciation rights (“SARs”) and restricted stock units (rights to receive, in cash or stock, the market value of one share of our commons stock). Incentive stock options (“ISOs”) may be granted only to employees. Nonstatutory stock options and other stock-based awards may be granted to officers, employees, non-employee directors and consultants. A total of 5,000,000 shares of our common stock are reserved for issuance upon exercise of awards granted under the 2012 Plan. The 2012 Plan will terminate as to grants of awards after 10 years from the effective date, unless it is terminated earlier by our board of directors.

The 2012 Plan will be administered by our board of directors or a committee of our board of directors (the “Administrator”) as provided in the 2012 Plan. The Administrator will have the authority to select the eligible participants to whom awards will be granted, to determine the types of awards and the number of shares covered and to set the terms, conditions and provisions of such awards, to cancel or suspend awards under certain conditions, and to accelerate the exercisability of awards. The Administrator will be authorized to interpret the 2012 Plan, to establish, amend, and rescind any rules and regulations relating to the 2012 Plan, to determine the terms of agreements entered into with recipients under the 2012 Plan, and to make all other determinations that may be necessary or advisable for the administration of the 2012 Plan.

Options and other awards may be granted under the 2012 Plan to directors, officers, employees and consultants of our company and any of our subsidiaries, provided that the services of such consultants are not in connection with the offer or sale of securities in a capital-raising transaction and do not directly or indirectly promote or maintain a market for our securities. At the date of this prospectus, all of our officers, directors and employees would have been eligible to receive awards under the 2012 Plan.

The exercise price per share of our common stock purchasable upon exercise of any stock option or SAR will be determined by the Administrator, but cannot in any event be less than 100% of the fair market value of our common stock on the date the award is granted. The Administrator will determine the term of each stock option or SAR (subject to a maximum term of 10 years) and each option or SAR will be exercisable pursuant to a vesting schedule determined by the Administrator. The grants and the terms of ISOs will be restricted to the extent required for qualification as ISOs by the U.S. Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. Subject to approval of the Administrator, options or SARs may be exercised by payment of the exercise price in cash, shares of common stock or pursuant to a “cashless exercise” through a broker-dealer under an arrangement approved by the Administrator. The Administrator may require the grantee to pay to us any applicable withholding taxes that we are required to withhold with respect to the grant or exercise of any option. The withholding tax may be paid in cash or, subject to applicable law, the Administrator may permit the grantee to satisfy these obligations by the withholding or delivery of shares of our common stock. We may withhold from any shares of our common stock that may be issued pursuant to an option or from any cash amounts otherwise due from us to the recipient of the option an amount equal to such taxes.

Restricted shares may be sold or awarded for consideration determined by the Administrator, including cash, full-recourse promissory notes, as well as past and future services. Any award of restricted shares will be subject to a vesting schedule determined by the Administrator. Any restricted shares that are not vested will be subject to rights of repurchase, rights of first refusal or other restrictions as determined by the Administrator. In general, holders of restricted shares will have the same voting, dividend and other rights as our other stockholders.

-27-
 

 

 

In the event of any change affecting shares of our common stock by reason of any stock dividend or split, recapitalization, merger, consolidation, spin-off, combination or exchange of shares or other similar corporate change, or any distribution to stockholders other than cash dividends, the Administrator will make substitutions or adjustments in the aggregate number of shares that may be distributed under the 2012 Plan, and in the number and types of shares subject to, and the exercise prices under, outstanding awards granted under the 2012 Plan, in accordance with Section 10 and other provisions of the 2012 Plan.

Unless otherwise permitted by the 2012 Plan and approved by the Administrator as permitted by the 2012 Plan, no award will be assignable or otherwise transferable by the grantee other than by will or the laws of descent and distribution and, during the grantee’s lifetime, an award may be exercised only by the grantee.

Our board of directors may amend the 2012 Plan in any and all respects without stockholder approval, except as such stockholder approval may be required under applicable law or pursuant to the listing requirements of any national market system or securities exchange on which our equity securities may be listed or quoted.

Unless sooner terminated by our board of directors, the 2012 Plan will terminate as to further grants of awards on March 5, 2022. Awards under the 2012 Plan will be made by the Administrator. The Administrator does not currently have plans to grant stock options or other awards to any individual or group of individuals under the 2012 Plan.

 

NOTE 9 - INCOME TAX

 

The deferred tax asset as of the year ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 consisted of the following:

 

   2012  2011
Net operating loss carry forwards  $133,208   $11,268 
Less valuation allowance   (133,208)   (11,268)
   $—     $—   
           

 

Management provided a deferred tax asset valuation allowance equal to the potential benefit due to the Company’s loss. When the Company demonstrates the ability to generate taxable income, management will re-evaluate the allowance.

 

As of September 30, 2012 and 2011, the Company has net operating loss carry forward of approximately $325,691 and $27,549, respectively, which is available to offset future taxable income that expires by year 2031.

 

Reconciliation between the provision for income taxes and the expected tax benefit using the federal statutory rate of 34% and state statutory rate of 6.9% for 2012 and 2011 is as follows:

 

   2012 and 2011
Income tax benefit at federal statutory rate   -34.00%
State income tax benefit, net of effect on federal taxes   -6.90%
Increase in valuation allowance   40.90%
Income tax expenses   —

Item 9.  Changes in and Disagreements with Accountants on Accounting and Financial Disclosure.

 

Not applicable

 

Item 9A.  Controls and Procedures.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures: We conducted an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. The term "disclosure controls and procedures", as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended ("Exchange Act"), means controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the company in the reports it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC`s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures also include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company's management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Based on this evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded as of September 30, 2012, that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective at a reasonable assurance level and are designed to provide reasonable assurance that the controls and procedures will meet their objectives. However, it should be noted that the design of any system of controls is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions, regardless of how remote.

Management's Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting: Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act. Our internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.  The internal controls for the Company are provided by executive management's review and approval of all transactions.  Our internal control over financial reporting also includes those policies and procedures that:

(1) pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets;
   
(2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with the authorization of our management; and
   
(3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Management assessed the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting as of September 30, 2012. In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission in Internal Control-Integrated Framework. Management's assessment included an evaluation of the design of our internal control over financial reporting and testing of the operational effectiveness of these controls.

Based on this assessment, management has concluded that as of September 30, 2012, our internal control over financial reporting was effective to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company's registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management's report was not subject to attestation by the Company's registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the SEC that permit the Company to provide only management's report in this annual report.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the last fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

Director Independence

The Company has not:

  established its own definition for determining whether its directors and nominees for directors are “independent” nor has it adopted any other standard of independence employed by any national securities exchange or inter-dealer quotation system, though our current director would not be deemed to be “independent” under any applicable definition given that he is an officer of the Company; nor
  established any committees of the board of directors.

Given the nature of the Company’s business, its limited stockholder base and the current composition of management, the board of directors does not believe that the Company requires any corporate governance committees at this time. The board of directors takes the position that management of a target business will establish committees that will be suitable for its operations after the Company consummates a business combination.

Policy on Audit Committee Pre-Approval of Audit and Permissible Non-audit Services of Independent Auditors

 

The Board’s policy is to pre-approve all audit and permissible non-audit services provided by the independent registered public accounting firm. These services may include audit services, audit-related services, tax services and other services. Pre-approval is generally detailed as to the particular service or category of services and is generally subject to a specific budget. The independent registered public accounting firm and management are required to periodically report to the Board regarding the extent of services provided by the independent registered public accounting firm in accordance with this pre-approval, and the fees for the services performed to date. The Board may also pre-approve particular services on a case-by-case basis. No services were approved by the Board of Directors in accordance with Item 2-01(c)(7)(i)(C) of Regulation S-X.

 

The Board has determined that the rendering of the services other than audit services by Anton &Chia is compatible with maintaining the principal accountant’s independence.

 

1. Audit services include audit work performed in the preparation of financial statements, as well as work that generally only the independent auditor can reasonably be expected to provide, including comfort letters, statutory audits, and attest services and consultation regarding financial accounting and/or reporting standards.

 

2. Audit-Related services are for assurance and related services that are reasonably related to the audit or review of our financial statements.

 

3. Tax services include all services performed by the independent auditor’s tax personnel except those services specifically related to the audit of the financial statements, and includes fees in the areas of tax compliance, tax planning, and tax advice.

 

4. Other Fees are those associated with products or services not captured in the other categories.
