About Us

HPEV, Inc. a Nevada corporation (the “Company”, “HPEV”, “we”, “us” or “our”) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on July 22, 2002 under the name “Bibb Corporation”. On September 3, 2010, the Company amended its Articles of Incorporation to change its name to “Z3 Enterprises, Inc.” and then again amended its Article of Incorporation, on April 5, 2012, to change its name to “HPEV, Inc.”  HPEV, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“HPEV-DE”) is a wholly owned subsidiary of HPEV.

The Company began its development stage in July 2002. Since inception we focused primarily on research and development activities, organizing our company, and finding and negotiating with vendors.
 
The original planned principal operations were to produce fully integrated multi-media products targeting the marginally literate. That changed when we signed a joint venture with Phoenix Productions and Entertainment Group (PPEG) and the focus shifted to educational, entertainment and reality show programming as well as feature films and special event marketing.

As a result of the joint venture, the Company changed its name from Bibb Corporation to Z3 Enterprises, Inc.  A few months later, PPEG bought out the majority shareholder of the Company and there was a change of control of the Company.

On March 29, 2011, Z3 Enterprises (“Z3”) entered into a Share Exchange Agreement to acquire 100 shares, constituting all of the issued and outstanding shares of HPEV Inc. (“HPEV”) in consideration for the issuance of 22,000,000 shares of Z3E common stock.  Upon closing of the Share Exchange on April 15, 2011, HPEV became a wholly owned subsidiary of Z3.
 
Control of Z3E changed hands on April 15, 2011 with the issuance of 21,880,000 shares of Z3E common stock to the original shareholders of HPEV pursuant to the terms of the as amended Share Exchange Agreement. An additional 120,000 shares were issued during the fourth quarter of 2011 which completed the issuance of 22,000,000 shares of Z3E common stock to HPEV, Inc. under the terms of the as amended Share Exchange Agreement. 
 
For accounting purposes, the acquisition of HPEV, Inc by Z3 Enterprises, Inc. has been recorded as a reverse acquisition of a public company and recapitalization of Z3 Enterprises, Inc. based on factors demonstrating that HPEV represents the accounting acquirer.

Z3E changed its business direction and now plans to commercialize the patents held by HPEV, Inc. On May 5, 2011, a total of 7 patents (1 granted (Patent No. 7,569,955), 6 pending) were assigned to HPEV-DE by Thermal Motors Innovations, LLC, a company controlled by the developers of the patents.  On March 13, 2012, HPEV-DE was awarded Patent No. 8,134,260 covering Motor with Heat Pipes, Submersible Motors.  On April 3, 2012, HPEV-DE was granted Patent No. 8,148,858 covering the incorporation of a totally enclosed heat pipe technology Air Cooled. On June 12, 2012, HEPV-DE was granted Patent No. 8,198,770 covering Heat Cooled Bearings “Bearing Cooler.”  On October 9th, 2012, HEPV-DE was awarded Patent No. 8,283,818 covering Motor with Heat Pipes, Hermetic Motors.

HPEV began its commercialization stage on March 24, 2011. Since inception, the Company has focused primarily on commercializing its patented and patent pending technologies, research and development activities, organizing the Company, finding and negotiating with vendors, and raising capital.

The patents and patents-pending assigned to HPEV-DE cover thermal dispersion technologies and their applications as well as an electric load assist and on board auxiliary generation power.  The utilization of thermal technologies should increase the horsepower of electric motors and generators, reduce the cost to produce with reduction of active material, and enhance the lifespan and effectiveness of heat-producing components.  The electric load assist is based on the Company’s parallel redundant vehicle platform which makes it possible for conversion of standard vehicles to plug-in hybrid electric vehicles to utilize power in any combination from the gas or diesel engine and an electric motor installed on-board.  The technology is both vehicle and energy agnostic.

On April 5, 2012, a Certificate of Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation was filed with the Nevada Secretary of State noting the change in the Company name to HPEV, Inc.; the increase in authorized common stock to 100,000,000 shares; the increase in preferred stock to 15,000,000 shares; and the authorization of the Board of Directors (the “Board”) to divide or change the powers, preferences, qualifications, limitations and rights of the preferred shares by resolution.

On April 5, 2012, the Board of Directors voted to amend the bylaws and establish the new registered agent in the State of Nevada as InCorp Services.  It voted to change the number and titles of corporate officers and to enable the alteration, amendment or repeal of the bylaws either by approval of a majority of shareholders or by the approval of the Board.  It also removed clauses that restricted the duties and authority of the Board committees as well as removed a clause regarding the resignation of officers.  Finally, it appointed Timothy Hassett, Chief Executive Officer; Quentin Ponder, Chief Financial Officer (he remains Treasurer); Theodore Banzhaf, President; and Judson Bibb, Vice President (he remains Secretary).

On April 6, 2012, the Board of Directors amended other articles and sections of the bylaws.  Specifically, they voted to increase the number of directors, to enable the filling of vacancies on the board of directors by majority vote of the remaining directors or director and to appoint Timothy Hassett and Quentin Ponder to serve as Chairman of the Board and Vice Chairman, respectively.

On April 20, 2012, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) approved the name change from Z3 Enterprises, Inc. to HPEV, Inc and the symbol change from BIBB to WARM.  The changes took effect on April 23, 2012.

As operations have consisted of general administrative and pre-production activities, the Company is considered a development stage company in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 915.

About This Offering
 
On December 14, 2012, (the “Closing Date”), the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “SBL SPA”), pursuant to which it sold to Spirit Bear Limited (“SBL”) (i) 200 shares of the Company’s Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, $.001 per share (the “Preferred Stock”) and (ii) warrants to purchase (a) 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.35 per share; (b) 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $.50 per share; (c) 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise of $.75 per share (all amounts subject to adjustment as provided in the respective warrants, and “a”, “b” and “c” collectively the “Common Stock Warrants”).  Each share of the Preferred Stock is convertible into 20,000 shares of Company’s common stock (the “Preferred Stock Shares”) and under certain circumstances the Preferred Stock is convertible into Senior Convertible Notes. The Conversion Price of the Preferred Stock is equal to the $2,500.  In addition, pursuant to the SBL SPA, at the Company’s discretion, upon the satisfaction of certain conditions outside the control of SBL, the Company may require SBL to purchase an additional 200 shares of the Preferred Stock and common stock warrants to purchase 6,000,000 share of the Company’s common stock.
 
The Company and the SBL also entered into a Registration Rights Agreement, dated December 14, 2012 (the “Registration Rights Agreement”). Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company shall file a registration statement to register the shares issuable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock and the shares issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants. If the Registration Statement is not filed within thirty days of the Closing Date, then the number of Warrant Shares shall be increased by 500,000 to 6,500,000. If the Securities and Exchange Commission has not declared the Registration Statement effective within 120 days of the Closing Date, then the Company shall pay to each holder of Preferred Shares an amount in cash per Preferred Share held equal to the product of (i) $5,000.00 multiplied by (ii) the product of (A) .02 multiplied by (B) the number of months after the Effectiveness Deadline that the Registration Statement is not declared effective by the SEC.
 
This prospectus includes (i) 12,000,000 shares issuable upon exercise of the Common Stock Warrants, (ii) 8,000,000 shares of common stock issuable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock, and (iii) 1,491,054 shares issuable upon conversion of previously purchased common stock warrants.

RISK FACTORS

An investment in the Company’s common stock involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully consider the risks described below as well as other information provided to you in this prospectus, including information in the section of this document entitled “Forward Looking Statements.” The risks and uncertainties described below are not the only ones facing us. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known to us or that we currently believe are immaterial may also impair our business operations. If any of the following risks actually occur, our business, financial condition or results of operations could be materially adversely affected, the value of our common stock could decline, and you may lose all or part of your investment.

RISKS RELATED TO OUR BUSINESS AND THE INDUSTRY IN WHICH WE OPERATE

Our limited operating history and recent change in business direction makes evaluating our business and future prospects difficult, and may increase the risk of your investment.
 
We have a very limited operating history on which investors can base an evaluation of our business, operating results and prospects.  Of even greater significance is that fact that we have no operating history with respect to converting internal combustion motor vehicles into plug-in hybrid electric vehicles by utilizing electric load assist on a parallel platform.

While the basic technology has been verified, we only recently have begun the final commercialization of the complete HPEV system in preparation for our initial conversion of a vehicle. This limits our ability to accurately forecast the cost of the conversions or to determine a precise date on which the commercial platform for vehicle conversions will be widely released.

We are currently evaluating, qualifying and selecting our suppliers for the hybrid conversion system. However, we may not be able to engage suppliers for the remaining components in a timely manner, at an acceptable price or in the necessary quantities. In addition, we may also need to do extensive testing to ensure that the conversions are in compliance with applicable National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) safety regulations and United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations prior to full distribution to our licensees.  Our plan to complete the initial commercialization of the hybrid conversion system is dependent upon the timely availability of funds, upon our finalizing the engineering, component procurement, build out and testing in a timely manner. Any significant delays would materially adversely affect our business, prospects, financial condition and operating results.

Equally, we have no operating history with respect to commercializing our heat pipe technology by incorporating it in brake components nor licensing it to motor and generator manufacturers.
 
Consequently, it is difficult to predict our future revenues and appropriately budget for our expenses, and we have limited insight into trends that may emerge and affect our business. In the event that actual results differ from our estimates or we adjust our estimates in future periods, our operating results and financial position could be materially affected.  If the markets for hybrid electric conversions and/or electric motors, generators and brake components enhanced with composite heat pipe technologies does not develop as we expect or develops more slowly than we expect, our business, prospects, financial condition and operating results will be harmed.

The market for plug-in hybrid electric vehicle conversions is relatively new, rapidly evolving, characterized by rapidly changing  technologies, evolving government regulation, and changing consumer demands and behaviors. Factors that may influence the conversions to plug-in hybrid electric vehicles include:

Decreases in the price of oil, gasoline and diesel fuel may slow the growth of our business and negatively impact our financial results.

Prices for oil, gasoline and diesel fuel can be very volatile. Increases in the price of fuels will likely raise interest in plug-in hybrid conversions. Decreases in the price of fuels will likely reduce interest in conversions and reduced interest could slow the growth of our business.
 
 
 
10

 

Our growth depends in part on environmental regulations and programs mandating the use of vehicles that get better gas mileage and generate fewer emissions. Modification or repeal of these regulations may adversely impact our business.

Enabling commercial customers to meet environmental regulations and programs in the United States that promote or mandate the use of vehicles that get better gas mileage and generate fewer emissions is an integral part of our business plan. For instance, the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach have adopted the San Pedro Bay Ports Clean Air Action Plan, which outlines a Clean Trucks Program that calls for the replacement of 16,000 drayage trucks with trucks that meet certain clean truck standards.

Industry participants with a vested interest in gasoline and diesel invest significant time and money in efforts to influence environmental regulations in ways that delay or repeal requirements for cleaner vehicle emissions. For instance, the American Trucking Association has filed suit to challenge specific concession requirements in the Clean Trucks Program, either of which may delay the program’s implementation.

Furthermore, the economic recession may result in the delay, amendment or waiver of environmental regulations due to the perception that they impose increased costs on the transportation industry or the general public that cannot be absorbed in a shrinking economy. The delay, repeal or modification of federal or state regulations or programs that encourage the use of more efficient and/or cleaner vehicles could slow our growth and adversely affect our business.

If we are unable to keep up with rapid technological changes in our field or compete effectively, we will be unable to operate profitably.

We are entering a field which is characterized by extensive research efforts and rapid technological progress. If we fail to anticipate or respond adequately to technological developments, our ability to operate profitably could suffer. We cannot assure you that research and discoveries by other companies will not render our technologies or potential products or services uneconomical or result in products superior to those we develop or that any technologies, products or services we develop will be preferred to any existing or newly-developed technologies, products or services.

Some aspects of our business will depend in part on the availability of federal, state and local rebates and tax credits for hybrid electric vehicles. A reduction in these incentives would increase the cost of conversions for our customers and could significantly reduce our revenue.
  
Hybrid conversions for the general public will depend in part on tax credits, rebates and similar federal, state and local government incentives that promote hybrid electric vehicles. We anticipate that fleet owners will be less reliant on incentives. As for other products we create, there should be no reliance at all.

Nonetheless, any reduction, elimination or discriminatory application of federal, state and local government incentives and other economic subsidies or tax credits because of policy changes, the reduced need for such subsidies or incentives due to the perceived success of the hybrid conversions, fiscal tightening or other reasons could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition, and operating results.

We may experience significant delays in the design and implementation of our thermal technology into the motors and/or generators of the companies with which we have research and development agreements could harm our business and prospects.

Any delay in the financing, design, and implementation of our thermal technology into the motor and/or generator lines of the companies with which we have research and development agreements could materially damage our brand, business, prospects, financial condition and operating results. Motor manufacturers often experience delays in the design, manufacture and commercial release of new product lines.

If we are unable to adequately control the costs associated with operating our business, including our costs of sales and materials, our business, financial condition, operating results and prospects will suffer.
 
 
 
11

 
 
If we are unable to maintain a sufficiently low level of costs for designing, marketing, selling and distributing our conversion system and thermal technologies relative to their selling prices, our operating results, gross margins, business and prospects could be materially and adversely impacted. We have made, and will be required to continue to make, significant investments for the design and sales of our system and technologies. There can be no assurances that our costs of producing and delivering our system and technologies will be less than the revenue we generate from sales, licenses and/or royalties or that we will achieve our expected gross margins.
 
We may be required to incur substantial marketing costs and expenses to promote our systems and technologies, even though our marketing expenses to date have been relatively limited. If we are unable to keep our operating costs aligned with the level of revenues we generate, our operating results, business and prospects will be harmed. Many of the factors that impact our operating costs are beyond our control. For example, the costs of our components could increase due to shortages as global demand for these products increases. Indeed, if the popularity of hybrid conversions exceeds current expectations without significant expansion in battery production capacity and advancements in battery technology, shortages could occur which would result in increased costs to us.

A small number of customers will account for a significant portion of our revenues from our motor/generator technology, and the loss of one or more of these customers or our inability to ultimately realize future revenue could materially adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations.

The electric motor and generator industry is a global industry with annual sales of approximately $120 billion USD. The industry has many participants, but more than 60% of the global market share is attributed to 10 companies including NIDEC, ABB, REGAL, WEG, SIEMENS, EMERSON, ONAN, Hyundai, TECO Westinghouse and Group Schneider.  We will derive a significant portion of our revenues from our motor/generator technology from a few companies which consist primarily of large, multi-national electric motor manufacturers. Our financial condition and results of operations could be materially and adversely affected if any one of these customers interrupts or curtails their activities, fail to license our technology or fail to pay for the services that have been performed.  The loss of any of our significant customers or our inability to sign licensing agreements or realize future contracted revenue could materially adversely affect our financial condition and results of operations.

We will be dependent on our suppliers, some of which are single or limited source suppliers, and the inability of these suppliers to continue to deliver, or their refusal to deliver, necessary components at prices and volumes acceptable to us would have a material adverse effect on our business, prospects and operating results.

We are currently evaluating, qualifying and selecting the remaining suppliers for our conversion system.  We will source globally from a number of suppliers, some of whom may be single source suppliers for these components. While we obtain components from multiple sources whenever possible, it may not always be possible to avoid purchasing from a single source. To date, we have not qualified alternative sources for any of our single sourced components.
 
While we believe that we may be able to establish alternate supply relationships and can obtain or engineer replacements for our single source components, we may be unable to do so in the short term or at all at prices or costs that are favorable to us. In particular, while we believe that we will be able to secure alternate sources of supply for almost all of our single-sourced components in a relatively short time frame, qualifying alternate suppliers or developing our own replacements for certain highly customized components may be time consuming and costly.
  
The supply chain will expose us to potential sources of delivery failure or component shortages. If we experience significant increased demand, or need to replace our existing suppliers, there can be no assurance that additional supplies of component parts will be available when required on terms that are favorable to us, at all, or that any supplier would allocate sufficient supplies to us in order to meet our requirements or fill our orders in a timely manner. The loss of any single or limited source supplier or the disruption in the supply of components from these suppliers could lead to delays to our customers, which could hurt our relationships with our customers and also materially adversely affect our business, prospects and operating results.
 
Changes in our supply chain may result in increased cost and delay. A failure by our suppliers to provide the necessary components could prevent us from fulfilling customer orders in a timely fashion which could result in negative publicity, damage our brand and have a material adverse effect on our business, prospects, financial condition and operating results.

If there are advances in other alternative vehicle fuels or technologies, or if there are improvements in gasoline or diesel engines or even if there are improvements in heat reduction or heat transfer technology, demand for hybrid electric conversions and/or our other products may decline and our business may suffer.

Technological advances in the production, delivery and use of alternative fuels that are, or are perceived to be, cleaner, more cost-effective than our traditional fuel/electric combination have the potential to slow adoption of plug-in hybrid electric vehicles.  Hydrogen, compressed natural gas and other alternative fuels in experimental or developmental stages may eventually offer a cleaner, more cost-effective alternative to our gasoline or diesel and electric combination.  Equally, any significant improvements in the fuel economy or efficiency of the internal combustion engine may slow conversions to plug-in hybrid vehicles and, consequently, would have a detrimental effect on our business and operations.

While we are not aware of any pending innovations in or introductions of new heat reduction or heat transfer technologies, that doesn’t mean none are in the offing.  We have no control of what our competitors are doing nor awareness of their plans until such information is released for general consumption.  The introduction of any new technology that offers better or equivalent results at a lower price would have a detrimental effect on our business and operations.

Our research and commercialization efforts may not be sufficient to adapt to changes in electric vehicle technology.

As technologies change, we plan to upgrade or adapt our conversion system in order to continue to provide vehicles with the latest technology, in particular battery technology. However, our conversions may not compete effectively with alternative vehicles if we are not able to source and integrate the latest technology into our conversion system. For example, we do not manufacture battery cells and that makes us dependent upon other suppliers of battery cell technology for our battery packs.

Any failure to keep up with advances in electric or internal combustion vehicle technology would result in a decline in our competitive position which would materially and adversely affect our business, prospects, operating results and financial condition.

RISKS RELATED TO BUSINESS AND ECONOMIC CONDITIONS

The cyclical nature of business cycles can adversely affect our business.

Our business is directly related to general economic conditions which can be cyclical.  It also depends on other factors, such as corporate and consumer confidence and preferences.  A significant increase in global sales of electric or hybrid vehicles could have a direct impact on our earnings and cash flows by lowering the need to convert existing vehicles to plug-in hybrids. Equally, a significant decrease in the global sales of electric motors and generators could have a direct impact on our earnings and cash flows. The realization of either situation would also have an adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

A prolonged economic downturn or economic uncertainty could adversely affect our business and cause us to require additional sources of financing, which may not be available.

Our sensitivity to economic cycles and any related fluctuation in the businesses of our fleet customers, electric motor manufacturers or income of the general public may have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows. If global economic conditions deteriorate or economic uncertainty increases, our customers and potential customers may experience lowered incomes or deterioration of their businesses, which may result in the delay or cancellation of plans to convert their vehicles.  As a consequence, our cash flow could be adversely impacted.

Any changes in business credit availability or cost of borrowing could adversely affect our business.

 
 
13

 
 
Declines in the availability of business credit and increases in corporate borrowing costs could negatively impact the number of conversions performed and the number of electric motors and generators manufactured. Substantial declines in the number of conversions by our customers could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

In addition, the disruption in the capital markets that began in 2008 has reduced the availability of debt financing to support the conversion of existing vehicles into plug-in hybrids. If our potential customers are unable to access credit to convert their vehicles, it would impair our ability to grow our business.

Our future business depends in large part on our ability to execute our plans to market our conversion system and our thermal technology.

Failure to obtain reliable sources of component supply, that will enable us to meet the quality, price, engineering, design and production standards, as well as the production volumes required to successfully mass market our conversion system or failure to translate the benefits of our thermal technology from testing and one-off applications into mass market production could negatively affect our Company’s revenues and business operations.

Even if we are successful in developing a high volume conversion platform and reliable sources of component supply, we do not know whether we will be able to do so in a manner that avoids significant delays and cost overruns, including factors beyond our control such as problems with suppliers and vendors, or shipping schedules that meet our customers’ conversion requirements. Any failure to develop such capabilities within our projected costs and timelines could have a material adverse effect on our business, prospects, operating results and financial condition.

Increases in costs of the materials and other supplies that we use in our products may have a negative impact on our business.

Significant changes in the markets where we purchase components and supplies for the hybrid conversions may adversely affect our profitability, particularly in the event of significant increases in demand where there is not a corresponding increase in supply, inflation or other pricing increases.  Volatility may have adverse effects on our business, results of operations or financial condition.

If we lose our key management personnel, we may not be able to successfully manage our business or achieve our objectives.

Our future success depends in large part upon the leadership and performance of our executive management team and key consultants. If we lose the services of one or more of our executive officers or key consultants, or if one or more of them decides to join a competitor or otherwise compete directly or indirectly with us, we may not be able to successfully manage our business or achieve our business objectives. If we lose the services of any of our key consultants, we may not be able to replace them with similarly qualified personnel, which could harm our business.

RISKS RELATED TO LEGAL, REGULATORY, TAX AND ACCOUNTING MATTERS

Our independent auditors have expressed their concern as to our ability to continue as a going concern.
 
As reflected in the accompanying financial statements, the Company has no stabilized source of revenues and needs additional cash resources to maintain its operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.  The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on its ability to raise additional capital or obtain necessary debt. We cannot predict when, if ever, we will be successful in this venture and, accordingly, we may be required to cease operations at any time, if we do not have sufficient working capital to pay our operating costs for the next 12 months and we will require additional funds to pay our legal, accounting and other fees associated with our company and its filing obligations under federal securities laws, as well as to pay our other accounts payable generated in the ordinary course of our business.
 
 
 
14

 
 
We may incur material losses and costs as a result of warranty claims and product liability actions that may be brought against us.
 
We face an inherent business risk of exposure to product liability in the event that our hybrid conversions or other products fail to perform as expected and, in the case of product liability, failure of our products results in bodily injury and/or property damage.

Our customers have expectations of proper performance and reliability of our hybrid conversions and any other products that we may supply. If flaws in the design of our products were to occur, we could experience a rate of failure in our hybrid conversions or other products that could result in significant charges for product re-work or replacement costs. Although we will engage in extensive quality programs and processes, these may not be sufficient to avoid conversion or product failures, which could cause us to:
 
 
lose net revenue;
 
incur increased costs such as costs associated with customer support;
 
experience delays, cancellations or rescheduling of conversions or orders for our products;
 
experience increased product returns or discounts; or
 
damage our reputation;
 
all of which could negatively affect our financial condition and results of operations.

If any of our hybrid conversions or other products are or are alleged to be defective, we may be required to participate in a recall involving such conversions or products. A recall claim brought against us, or a product liability claim brought against us in excess of our available insurance, may have a material adverse effect on our business.

Depending on the terms under which we supply products to a vehicle component or engine manufacturer, a manufacturer may attempt to hold us responsible for some or all of the repair or replacement costs of defective products under their warranties when the manufacturer asserts that the product supplied did not perform as warranted. Although we cannot assure that the future costs of warranty claims by our customers will not be material, we believe our planned insurance coverage should be adequate to satisfy potential warranty settlements.  However, the final amounts determined to be due related to these matters could differ materially from our recorded estimates.

Developments or assertions by us or against us relating to intellectual property rights could materially impact our business.

We own intellectual property, including a number of patents. Our intellectual property should play an important role in maintaining our competitive position in a number of the markets we intend to serve.

We will attempt to protect proprietary and intellectual property rights to our products and conversion system through available patent laws and licensing and distribution arrangements with reputable domestic and international companies.  Despite these precautions, patent laws afford only limited practical protection in certain countries.
 
Litigation may also be necessary in the future to enforce our intellectual property rights or to determine the validity and scope of the proprietary rights of others or to defend against claims of invalidity. Such litigation could result in substantial costs and the diversion of resources.

As we create or adopt new technology, we will also face an inherent risk of exposure to the claims of others that we have allegedly violated their intellectual property rights.

We are unaware of any infringement upon our proprietary rights and have not been notified by any third party that we are infringing upon anyone else’s proprietary rights; however we cannot assure that we will not experience any intellectual property claim losses in the future or that we will not incur significant costs to defend such claims nor can we assure that infringement or invalidity claims will not materially adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition. Regardless of the validity or the success of the assertion of these claims, we could incur significant costs and diversion of resources in enforcing our intellectual property rights or in defending against such claims, which could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.
 
 
 
15

 
 
Any such imposition of a liability that is not covered by insurance, is in excess of insurance coverage or is not covered by an indemnification could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

Liability or alleged liability could harm our business by damaging our reputation, requiring us to incur expensive legal costs in defense, exposing us to awards of damages and costs and diverting management’s attention away from our business operations. Any such liability could severely impact our business operations and/or revenues.

If any claims or actions are asserted against us, we may seek to settle such claim by obtaining a license from the plaintiff covering the disputed intellectual property rights.

We cannot provide any assurances, however, that under such circumstances a license, or any other form of settlement, would be available on reasonable terms or at all.

We may incur material losses, additional costs or even interruption of business operations as a result of fines or sanctions brought by government regulators.

We will likely be subject to various U.S. federal, state and local, and non-U.S. environmental, transportation and safety laws and regulations, such as requirements for aftermarket fuel conversion certification by the Environmental Protection Agency or separate requirements for aftermarket fuel conversion certification by California and other states.

We cannot assure you that we will be at all times in complete compliance with such laws, regulations and permits. If we violate or fail to comply with these laws, regulations or certifications, we could be fined or otherwise sanctioned by regulators.

We face risks related to compliance with corporate governance laws and financial reporting standards.

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, as well as related new rules and regulations implemented by the Securities and Exchange Commission and the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, require changes in the corporate governance practices and financial reporting standards for public companies. These new laws, rules and regulations, including compliance with Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 relating to internal control over financial reporting, referred to as Section 404, have materially increased our legal and financial compliance costs and made some activities more time-consuming and more burdensome.

We may face risks from doing business internationally.

We may license, sell or distribute products outside the United States, and derive revenues from these sources. Consequently, our revenues and results of operations will be vulnerable to currency fluctuations. We will report our revenues and results of operations in United States dollars, but a significant portion of our revenues could be earned outside of the United States.  We cannot accurately predict the impact of future exchange rate fluctuations on revenues and operating margins. Such fluctuations could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition.

Our business will also be subject to other risks inherent in the international marketplace, many of which are beyond our control. These risks include:
 
 
laws and policies affecting trade, investment and taxes, including laws and policies relating to the repatriation of funds and withholding taxes, and changes in these laws;
 
changes in local regulatory requirements, including restrictions on conversions;
  differing cultural tastes and attitudes;
  differing degrees of protection for intellectual property;
  financial instability;
  the instability of foreign economies and governments;
  war and acts of terrorism.
 
 
 
16

 
 
Any of the foregoing could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH THE COMPANY’S COMMON STOCK

Sales of outstanding shares of our stock in the future could cause the market price of our stock to drop significantly, even if our business is doing well.
 
If our stockholders sell, or indicate an intention to sell, substantial amounts of our common stock in the public market, the trading price of our common stock could declineOn January 4, 2013, 47,646,441 shares of our common stock were outstanding.

The issuance of shares upon conversion of the preferred shares and exercise of outstanding warrants will cause immediate and substantial dilution to our existing stockholders.

The issuance of shares upon conversion of preferred shares and exercise of warrants, including those being registered pursuant to this registration statement, will result in substantial dilution to the interests of other stockholders since the selling security holders may ultimately convert and sell the full amount issuable on conversion.

Selling low-priced penny stock is involved and uncertain.

For transactions covered by the penny stock rules, a broker-dealer must make a suitability determination for each purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement prior to the sale. In addition, the broker-dealer must make certain mandated disclosures in penny stock transactions, including the actual sale or purchase price and actual bid and offer quotations, the compensation to be received by the broker-dealer and certain associated persons, and deliver certain disclosures required by the  Securities and Exchange Commission.  Consequently, the penny stock rules may affect the ability of broker-dealers to make a market in or trade our common stock and may also affect your ability to resell any shares purchased in the public markets.

There is limited liquidity in our shares.
 
The market prices of our shares may fluctuate significantly in response to factors, some of which are beyond our control.  These factors include:

The announcement of new products by our competitors
The release of new products by our competitors
Developments in our industry or target markets
General market conditions including factors unrelated to our operating performance
 
Recently, the stock market in general has experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations. Continued market fluctuations could result in extreme market volatility in the price of our shares of common stock which could cause a decline in the value of our shares. Price volatility may be worse if our trading volume of our common stock is low.

There is a very limited trading market for our securities.

There is currently only a limited trading market for our common stock. Consequently, you may have difficulty selling any shares you purchased.

We cannot predict the extent investor interest will lead to development of an active trading market or how liquid that trading market might become. If an active trading market does not develop or is not sustained, it may be difficult for investors to sell shares of our common stock at a price that is attractive or at all.  In such a case, you may find that you are unable to achieve any benefit from your investment or liquidate your shares of common stock without considerable delay, if at all.

USE OF PROCEEDS

We will receive no proceeds from the sale of shares of Common Stock offered by the selling stockholders. However, we will generate proceeds from any cash exercise of the warrants by the selling stockholders, if any. There can be no assurance that any of the selling stockholders will exercise all or any of their warrants.  We intend to use any proceeds received for general corporate purposes.
 

SELLING SECURITY HOLDERS
 
The following table details the name of each selling stockholder, the number of shares owned by that selling stockholder, and the number of shares that may be offered by each selling stockholder for resale under this prospectus.  The selling stockholders may sell up to 15,491,054 shares of our Common Stock from time to time in one or more offerings under this prospectus. Because each selling stockholder may offer all, some or none of the shares it holds, and because, based upon information provided to us, there are currently no agreements, arrangements, or understandings with respect to the sale of any of the shares, no definitive estimate as to the number of shares that will be held by each selling stockholder after the offering can be provided. The following table has been prepared on the assumption that all shares offered under this prospectus will be sold to parties unaffiliated with the selling stockholders.

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION

Each selling stockholder and any of its pledgees, assignees and successors-in-interest may, from time to time, sell any or all of its shares of common stock on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board or any other stock exchange, market or trading facility on which our shares are traded or in private transactions. These sales may be at fixed or negotiated prices. A selling stockholder may use any one or more of the following methods when selling shares:
 
 
 
ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker-dealer solicits purchasers;
     
 
block trades in which the broker-dealer will attempt to sell the shares as agent but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction;
     
 
purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by the broker-dealer for its account;
     
 
an exchange distribution in accordance with the rules of the applicable exchange;
     
 
privately negotiated transactions;
     
 
settlement of short sales entered into after the effective date of the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part;
     
 
broker-dealers may agree with the selling stockholders to sell a specified number of such shares at a stipulated price per share;
     
 
through the writing or settlement of options or other hedging transactions, whether through an options exchange or otherwise;
     
 
a combination of any such methods of sale; or
     
 
any other method permitted pursuant to applicable law. 

 
The selling stockholders may also sell shares under Rule 144 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, if available, rather than under this prospectus.
 
A selling stockholder or its pledgees, donees, transferees or other successors in interest, may also sell the shares directly to market makers acting as principals and/or broker-dealers acting as agents for themselves or their customers. Such broker-dealers may receive compensation in the form of discounts, concessions or commissions from the selling stockholder and/or the purchasers of shares for whom such broker-dealers may act as agents or to whom they sell as principal or both, which compensation as to a particular broker-dealer might be in excess of customary commissions. Market makers and block purchasers purchasing the shares will do so for their own account and at their own risk. It is possible that a selling stockholder will attempt to sell shares of common stock in block transactions to market makers or other purchasers at a price per share which may be below the then market price. A selling stockholder cannot assure that all or any of the shares offered in this prospectus will be issued to, or sold by, the selling stockholder. The selling stockholders and any brokers, dealers or agents, upon effecting the sale of any of the shares offered in this prospectus, may be deemed to be "underwriters" as that term is defined under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the rules and regulations under such acts. In such event, any commissions received by such broker-dealers or agents and any profit on the resale of the shares purchased by them may be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts under the Securities Act.

We are required to pay all fees and expenses incident to the registration of the shares, including fees and disbursements of counsel to the selling stockholder, but excluding brokerage commissions or underwriter discounts.

The selling stockholders, alternatively, may sell all or any part of the shares offered in this prospectus through an underwriter. No selling stockholder has entered into any agreement with a prospective underwriter and there is no assurance that any such agreement will be entered into.
 
 
 
19

 
 
A selling stockholder may pledge its shares to their brokers under the margin provisions of customer agreements. If a selling stockholder defaults on a margin loan, the broker may, from time to time, offer and sell the pledged shares. The selling stockholder and any other persons participating in the sale or distribution of the shares will be subject to applicable provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations under such act, including, without limitation, Regulation M. These provisions may restrict certain activities of, and limit the timing of purchases and sales of any of the shares by, the selling stockholder or any other such person. In the event that the selling stockholder is deemed affiliated with purchasers or distribution participants within the meaning of Regulation M, then the selling stockholder will not be permitted to engage in short sales of common stock. Furthermore, under Regulation M, persons engaged in a distribution of securities are prohibited from simultaneously engaging in market making and certain other activities with respect to such securities for a specified period of time prior to the commencement of such distributions, subject to specified exceptions or exemptions. In regards to short sells, the selling stockholder is contractually restricted from engaging in short sells. In addition, if such short sale is deemed to be a stabilizing activity, then the selling stockholder will not be permitted to engage in a short sale of our common stock. All of these limitations may affect the marketability of the shares.
  
If the selling stockholder notifies us that it has a material arrangement with a broker-dealer for the resale of the common stock, then we would be required to amend the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part, and file a prospectus supplement to describe the agreements between the selling stockholder and the broker-dealer.
  
DESCRIPTION OF SECURITIES TO BE REGISTERED
 
This prospectus includes 21,491,054 shares of our Common Stock offered by the selling stockholders. The following description of our Common Stock is only a summary. You should also refer to our certificate of incorporation and bylaws, each as amended, which have been filed as exhibits to the registration statement of which this prospectus forms a part.  
 
We are authorized to issue 100,000,000 shares of Common Stock having a par value of $0.001 per share and 15,000,000 shares of preferred stock having a par value of $0.001 per share (“Preferred Stock”). Holders of Common Stock are entitled to one vote for each share held on all matters submitted to a vote of stockholders and do not have cumulative voting rights. Accordingly, holders of a majority of the shares of Common Stock entitled to vote in any election of directors may elect all of the directors standing for election. Holders of Common Stock are entitled to receive proportionately any dividends as may be declared by our board of directors, subject to any preferential dividend rights of outstanding preferred stock. Our outstanding shares of Common Stock are fully paid and non-assessable. Holders of shares of Common Stock have no conversion, preemptive or other subscription rights, and there are no redemption or sinking fund provisions applicable to the Common Stock.
 
On December 14, 2012, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “SBL SPA”), pursuant to which it sold to Spirit Bear Limited (“SBL”) 200 shares of the Company’s Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, $.001 per share (the “Preferred Stock”) and (ii) warrants to purchase (a) 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.35 per share (“Warrant A”); (b) 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $.50 per share (“Warrant B”); (c) 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise of $.75 per share (“Warrant C”)(all amounts subject to adjustment as provided in the respective warrants, and “Warrant A”, “Warrant B” and “Warrant C” collectively the “Common Stock Warrants”).  Each share of the Preferred Stock is convertible into 20,000 shares of Company’s common stock (the “Preferred Stock Shares”) and under certain circumstances the Preferred Stock is convertible into Senior Convertible Notes. The Conversion Price of the Preferred Stock is equal to the $2,500.  In addition, pursuant to the SBL SPA, at the Company’s discretion, upon the satisfaction of certain conditions outside the control of SBL, the Company may require SBL to purchase an additional 200 shares of the Preferred Stock and common stock warrants to purchase 6,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock.  Warrant A and Warrant B contain a provision whereby upon achievement of certain financial milestones and on the date 30 days after SBL receives notice of the achievement of such milestones from the Company, such warrants shall cease being exercisable.  Warrant C contains no such provision.

In connection with the sale of the Preferred Stock, on December 17, 2012, the Company filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada a Certificate of Designations of the Rights, Preferences, Privileges and Restrictions, which have not been set forth in the Certificate of Incorporation of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Certificate of Designations”).
 
The Preferred Stock has rights as if each share of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock were converted into twenty thousand (20,000) shares of Common Stock. The holders of each share of Preferred Stock then outstanding shall be entitled to be paid, out of the Available Funds and Assets (as defined in the "Certificate of Designations”), and prior and in preference to any payment or distribution (or any setting apart of any payment or distribution) of any Available Funds and Assets (as defined in the "Certificate of Designations”) on any shares of Common Stock, an amount per share equal to the Liquidation Price ($2,500 per share of the Preferred Stock) of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock.
 
 
 
20

 
 
The Company and the SBL also entered into a Registration Rights Agreement, dated December 14, 2012 (the “Registration Rights Agreement”). Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company was required to file this registration statement to register the shares issuable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock (described below) and the shares issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants. If the Registration Statement was not filed within thirty days of the Closing Date, then the number of Warrant Shares shall be increased by 500,000 to 6,500,000. If the Securities and Exchange Commission has not declared the Registration Statement effective within 120 days of the Closing Date, then the Company shall pay to each holder of Preferred Shares an amount in cash per Preferred Share held equal to the product of (i) $5,000.00 multiplied by (ii) the product of (A) .02 multiplied by (B) the number of months after the Effectiveness Deadline that the Registration Statement is not declared effective by the SEC.

In the event a Registration Statement has not been declared effective by the United States Securities Exchange Commission within 180 calendar days from and after the Closing Date, the holders of at least two-thirds (2/3) of the then outstanding shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock may deliver a written notice to the Company electing the conversion of all Series A Convertible Preferred Stock to Debentures. Upon receipt of such notice, the outstanding shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock shall be converted to Debentures and as a result the Company would issue Debentures having a principal amount of up to $1,000,000.


INTERESTS OF NAMED EXPERTS AND COUNSEL

The validity of the shares of common stock offered hereby will be passed upon for the Registrant by Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP, 61 Broadway, 32nd fl., New York, NY 10006.

  DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
 
 Overview

HPEV, Inc., a Nevada corporation (formerly known as Bibb Corporation and Z3 Enterprises, Inc.) (hereinafter referred to as “HPEV” or the” Company”), was incorporated in the State of Nevada on July 22, 2002.

On March 29, 2011, the Company (under the name Z3 Enterprises) (“Z3E”) entered into a Share Exchange Agreement to acquire 100 shares, constituting all of the issued and outstanding shares of HPEV Inc., a Delaware corporation (“HPEV-DE”), in consideration for the issuance of 22,000,000 shares of Company common stock.  Upon closing of the Share Exchange on April 15, 2011, HPEV-DE became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

For accounting purposes, the acquisition of HPEV-DE by the Company was recorded as a reverse acquisition of a public company and recapitalization of the Company based on factors demonstrating that HPEV-DE represents the accounting acquirer.

HPEV-DE was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on March 24, 2011 to commercialize the technology from patents developed by two of its shareholders.  Activities during its start-up stage were nominal. 

Subsequent to the closing of the Share Exchange, the Company changed its business focus to the commercialization of HPEV-DE technologies in a variety of markets by licensing its thermal dispersion technologies to engine, generator and vehicle component manufacturers, among others.  

Z3E changed its business direction and now plans to commercialize the patents held by HPEV, Inc. On May 5, 2011, a total of 7 patents (1 granted (Patent No. 7,569,955), 6 pending) were assigned to HPEV-DE by Thermal Motors Innovations, LLC, a company controlled by the developers of the patents.  On March 13, 2012, HPEV-DE was awarded Patent No. 8,134,260 covering Motor with Heat Pipes, Submersible Motors.  On April 3, 2012, HPEV-DE was granted Patent No. 8,148,858 covering the incorporation of a totally enclosed heat pipe technology Air Cooled. On June 12, 2012, HEPV-DE was granted Patent No. 8,198,770 covering Heat Cooled Bearings “Bearing Cooler.”  On October 9th, 2012, HEPV-DE was awarded Patent No. 8,283,818 covering Motor with Heat Pipes, Hermetic Motors.

The patents and patents-pending assigned to HPEV-DE cover thermal dispersion technologies and their applications as well as an electric load assist and on-board auxiliary generation power.  The utilization of thermal technologies should increase the horsepower of electric motors and generators, reduce the cost to produce with reduction of active material and enhance the lifespan and effectiveness of heat-producing components.  The electric load assist is based on the Company’s parallel redundant vehicle platform which makes it possible for conversion of standard vehicles to plug-in hybrid electric vehicles to utilize power in any combination from the gas or diesel engine and an electric motor installed on-board. The technology is both vehicle and energy agnostic.
 
On April 5, 2012, a Certificate of Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation was filed with the Nevada Secretary of State noting the change in the Company name to HPEV, Inc.; the increase in authorized common stock to 100,000,000 shares; the increase in preferred stock to 15,000,000 shares; and the authorization of the Board to divide or change the powers, preferences, qualifications, limitations and rights of the preferred shares by resolution.

On April 5, 2012, the Board of Directors voted to amend the bylaws and establish the new registered agent in the State of Nevada as InCorp Services.  It voted to change the number and titles of corporate officers and to enable the alteration, amendment or repeal of the bylaws either by approval of a majority of shareholders or by the approval of the Board.  It also removed clauses that restricted the duties and authority of the Board committees as well as removed a clause regarding the resignation of Officers.  Finally, it appointed Timothy Hassett, Chief Executive Officer; Quentin Ponder, Chief Financial Officer (he remains Treasurer); Theodore Banzhaf, President; and Judson Bibb, Vice President (he remains Secretary).

On April 6, 2012, the Board of Directors amended other articles and sections of the bylaws.  Specifically, they voted to increase the number of directors, to enable the filling of vacancies on the board of directors by majority vote of the remaining directors or director and to appoint Timothy Hassett and Quentin Ponder to serve as Chairman of the Board and Vice Chairman, respectively.

On April 20, 2012, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) approved the name change from Z3 Enterprises, Inc. to HPEV, Inc and the symbol change from BIBB to WARM.  The changes took effect on April 23, 2012.

As operations have consisted of general administrative and pre-production activities, the Company is considered a development stage company in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 915.

Business Strategy

We have developed and intend to commercialize thermal dispersion technologies in various product platforms, and have developed and intend to commercialize an electric load assist technology around which we have designed a vehicle retrofit system. In preparation, we have applied for trademarks for some of our technologies and their acronyms including ‘Totally Enclosed Heat Pipe Cooled’, ‘TEHPC’, ‘Electric Load Assist’ and ‘ELA’.

We believe that our proprietary technologies, including our patent portfolio and trade secrets, can help make increase the efficiency and affect manufacturing cost structure in several large industries beginning with motor/generator and fleet vehicles.
 
    The markets for products utilizing our technology include consumer, industrial and military markets, both in the U.S. and worldwide.  Our initial target markets include those involved in moving materials and moving people, such as:

Our Technologies

Our technologies are divided into two distinct but complementary categories: heat dispersion technology, electric load assist and mobile auxiliary power technology.

Heat Dispersion Technology

Heat is an undesirable byproduct of anything that moves, especially motors and generators.  Historically, a large percentage of the cost of manufacturing any motor has been in the technology necessary to remove heat during its operation to prevent failure and increase power.  Heat can destroy motors, generators and many other types of machinery, and the energy necessary to remove heat can limit output.

Our thermal dispersion technology removes heat via patented heat pipe technologies.  Heat pipes have been utilized for more than 50 years, but we have a proprietary process and design technology that makes our heat pipes usable in many applications that have previously not been effective.  The key is that our heat pipes move heat in ANY direction in a system that requires little or no maintenance and can be applied to almost any motor, generator or industrial product.  This allows for more efficient, smaller, and higher output machines, resulting in cooler motors and a longer operating life.

Our patent portfolio covers the application and integration of our heat pipes into various cooling schemes for enhanced heat removal in motors, generators and numerous other industrial applications including marine, aviation and military.  We believe that our technologies have the potential to deliver power output increases and cost reductions, depending on the machine type or motor/generator size, as follows:

 
1.
 
Increase power density of current motor platforms by 20% to 50%,
2.
 
Reduce total product cost by 12.5% to 25%,
3.
 
Increase motor and generator efficiency by 1% to 2%, and
4.
 
Increase motor and generator life.

We believe that products produced with our technologies have the potential to deliver operational savings as well, including:

1.
 
Savings from reduced maintenance costs,
2.
 
Savings from the standardization of multiple platforms down to a single platform,
3.
 
Savings from the standardization of drawings and data around existing platforms,
4.
 
Savings from the ability to use standard designs and standard insulation systems versus custom, and
5.
 
Savings from the ability to integrate and produce on existing production lines with no retooling and no additional or minimum capital investment.
Management plans to capture revenues for a significant portion of the value of these savings that will also be delivered to market.

Our revenue model for the heat dispersion technology is to license the technology in exchange for royalties.  We are entering into product development and commercialization agreements with manufacturing partners.  We anticipate that we will begin to enter into license agreements upon  completion of our initial product development, when the product is ready to be manufactured on the licensee’s regular production line, after all development and testing have been completed.

 
 
23

 
 
We expect to begin to generate revenues from our heat dispersion technology business in the first half of 2013.

Electric Load Assist (ELA) Technology

We have also developed proprietary Electric Load Assist (“ELA”) technology. The technology is the centerpiece of our vehicle retrofit system (separate and apart from our heat pipe technology and heat dispersion product development partnerships), which also relies on the benefits of heat removal and is protected by patents and patents-pending.

With ELA, a vehicle engine does not have to work as hard as some of the work that was done by the engine is now performed by an electric motor running in parallel.  The vehicle still drives and feels the same, and our ELA controller allows full acceleration and braking control; however, the engine runs much more efficiently and burns significantly less fossil fuel.  The ELA controller allows the vehicle operator to determine the amount of load assist during operation, ranging from all-fuel to all-electric.  Our ELA system will provide a significant difference and improvement from, and competitive advantage over, current market offerings such as the Toyota Prius. If either the electrical system or the internal combustion engine fails, an ELA vehicle can operate on the remaining system.  In current market offerings, if either system fails, the vehicle fails.

Our ELA technology is compatible with any manufacturer as well as any power source, including traditional gasoline/diesel engines, batteries and fuel cells.  Our technology should also provide a wide range of marine, aviation, industrial and military applications.

Initially, our ELA system business will implement a simple version of its technology for On-board mobile auxiliary power and is expected to generate revenue from transport companies and other businesses which own and/or manage fleets of Class 2, 3, 4 and 5 or light to medium-duty trucks.  Our revenue model for the ELA technology will be to license the technology in exchange for royalties based on fuel savings.
 
We expect to begin to generate revenues from our ELA technology business in the second half of 2013.

Competition

    While the new hybrid electric vehicle industry is intensely competitive and features several multi-national companies such as Ford, GM, Volvo, Honda and Toyota, the market for hybrid conversions is in its infancy.  There are a number of small companies selling do-it-yourself conversion kits for individual vehicles. EV Power Systems is pitching conversions for fleet vehicles, AMP Holding Inc. maker of AMP Electric Vehicles and Wrightspeed Inc. offer replacement electric drive trains for high fuel consumption vehicles and VIA Motors is offering conversions of a GM pick-up, van and SUV. To our knowledge, no other company has electric load assist technology in a parallel redundant platform or an aftermarket commercial platform that is being retrofitted on a regular, on-going basis.
 
We aim to compete in both the individual vehicle and the fleet markets for currently-owned vehicles.

We believe the primary competitive factors in our markets include, but are not limited to:
 
 
  technological innovation;
  product quality and safety;
  product performance; and
  price.
 
To a limited extent, we will be competing against new hybrid vehicles, but the company has switched its focus to on-board mobile auxiliary power where management sees a market need for on-board, continuous generating power vs. in tow mobile, diesel or gas, backup power wherein the consumer or fleet owner has a vehicle that is near the end of its useful life and who elects to purchase a new hybrid vehicle rather than upgrade with a conversion to a plug-in hybrid.  However, it may still be cost effective for the consumer to purchase new and then add the conversion depending on the added cost for a new hybrid versus the conversion cost.

 
 
24

 
 
Some of our competitors and potential competitors may have greater resources than we do, and may be able to respond more quickly and efficiently to changes in the marketplace whether technological, economic or simply changes in customer requirements or preferences.

Some of our potential competitors are significantly larger than we are, have been in business much longer than we have, and have significantly more resources at their disposal. That enhances their ability to obtain top engineering talent as well as sales representatives with strong industry ties. Plus, their greater market clout could effectively overwhelm our promotional and marketing efforts.
 
Although we believe that our products and services will compete favorably, we cannot ensure that they will be profitable nor that we can maintain a competitive position against potential competitors. Increased competition may result in price reductions, reduced gross margins, loss of market share and loss of licensees, any of which could materially and adversely affect our business, operating results and financial condition.

We cannot ensure that our current or future competitors will not develop products which may be superior to ours or which may prove to be more popular. It is possible that new competitors will emerge and rapidly acquire market share. We cannot ensure that we will be able to compete successfully against current or future competitors or that the competitive pressures will not materially and adversely affect our business, operating results and financial condition.

Manufacturing

No manufacturing will be done in-house. For our thermal technologies, the Company will rely on product development agreements with existing manufacturers who will then pay a license or royalty per unit. For plug-in, hybrid conversions, the Company will rely on off-the-shelf and made-to-order equipment combined with proprietary software created specifically for use on our parallel platform.  To that end, the Company has already sourced and priced electric motors and other components as well as software programming.  Installations will be performed by our licensees for ELA, but the company plans to outsource manufacture of its on-board mobile auxiliary power kit and both market and license.
 
 
Government and Industry Regulation

The Magnuson–Moss Warranty Act is a federal law that protects consumers by not allowing a vehicle manufacturer to void the warranty on a vehicle due to an aftermarket part unless, the manufacturer can prove that the aftermarket part caused or contributed to the failure in the vehicle.
 
 
The Company intends to add an electric load assist on a parallel platform to motor vehicles.  No original vehicle parts will be significantly modified in the conversion process.  There will be some additional parts (motor, drive, battery and sensors and controls) added, but these parts will not change how the vehicle operates in any way.

Although we will be adding power directly to the rear wheels, the rest of the drive train will operate according to the manufacturer’s specifications.  Therefore, the original warranty should remain in effect.

All our other components (motor, drive, batteries, controller/sensors) will be warranted by their respective manufacturers.

In addition, the total weight of the additional components added should remain within the vehicle’s Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.  As a result, the conversion should not run afoul of either federal or state transportation regulations.
Any change to the original configuration of an EPA certified vehicle, including alternative fuel conversion, is a potential violation of the Clean Air Act prohibition against tampering. The EPA has established protocols through which we may seek exemption from the tampering prohibition by demonstrating that emission controls in the converted vehicle will continue to function properly and that pollution will not increase as a result of conversion. The Company intends to demonstrate that its converted vehicles satisfy EPA emissions requirements.
 
 
 
25

 

We also intend to comply with state emission regulations. For instance, California’s regulations require that retrofit systems be evaluated and certified by the Air Resources Board.

Our Intellectual Property

Our success depends, at least in part, on our ability to protect our core technology and intellectual property. To accomplish this, we rely on a combination of patents, patent applications, trade secrets, copyright laws, trademarks, intellectual property licenses and other contractual rights to establish and protect our proprietary rights in our technology.
 
 Our research and development is supported by a broad intellectual property portfolio. We currently own or have exclusive licenses to 5 patents and have 6 patent applications pending worldwide in the field composite heat structures, motors, and related structures.  The Company has a policy of not disclosing its patent applications in order to ensure protection of the underlying technology.
 
Our success will likely depend upon our ability to preserve our proprietary technologies and operate without infringing the proprietary rights of other parties. However, we may rely on certain proprietary technologies and know-how that are not patentable. We protect such proprietary information, in part, by the use of confidentiality agreements with our employees, consultants and certain of our contractors.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following discussion and analysis should be read together with our financial statements and the related notes appearing elsewhere in this prospectus. This discussion contains forward-looking statements reflecting our current expectations that involve risks and uncertainties. See “Forward-Looking Statements” for a discussion of the uncertainties, risks and assumptions associated with these statements. Actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those discussed in our forward-looking statements as a result of many factors, including those set forth under “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this prospectus.
 
OVERVIEW
 
Corporate
 
 
HPEV, Inc. a Nevada corporation (the “Company”, “HPEV”, “we”, “us” or “our”) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on July 22, 2002 under the name “Bibb Corporation”. On September 3, 2010, the Company amended its Articles of Incorporation to change its name to “Z3 Enterprises, Inc.” and then again amended its Article of Incorporation, on April 5, 2012, to change its name to “HPEV, Inc.”

The Company began its development stage in July 2002. Since inception we focused primarily on research and development activities, organizing our company, finding and negotiating with vendors, raising capital and laying the groundwork to take the company public.
 
As a result of the joint venture, the Company changed its name from Bibb Corporation to Z3 Enterprises, Inc.  

On March 29, 2011, Z3 Enterprises (“Z3E”) entered into a Share Exchange Agreement to acquire 100 shares, constituting all of the issued and outstanding shares of HPEV Inc. (“HPEV”) in consideration for the issuance of 22,000,000 shares of Z3E common stock.  Upon closing of the Share Exchange on April 15, 2011, HPEV became a wholly owned subsidiary of Z3E.
 
Control of Z3E changed hands on April 15, 2011 with the issuance of 21,880,000 shares of Z3E common stock to the original shareholders of HPEV pursuant to the terms of the as amended Share Exchange Agreement. An additional 120,000 shares were issued during the fourth quarter of 2011 which completed the issuance of 22,000,000 shares of Z3E common stock to HPEV, Inc. under the terms of the as amended Share Exchange Agreement. 
 
For accounting purposes, the acquisition of HPEV, Inc by Z3 Enterprises, Inc. has been recorded as a reverse acquisition of a public company and recapitalization of Z3 Enterprises, Inc. based on factors demonstrating that HPEV represents the accounting acquirer.

Z3E changed its business direction and now plans to commercialize the patents held by HPEV, Inc. On May 5, 2011, a total of 7 patents (1 granted (Patent No. 7,569,955), 6 pending) were assigned to HPEV-DE by Thermal Motors Innovations, LLC, a company controlled by the developers of the patents.  On March 13, 2012, HPEV-DE was awarded Patent No. 8,134,260 covering Motor with Heat Pipes, Submersible Motors.  On April 3, 2012, HPEV-DE was granted Patent No. 8,148,858 covering the incorporation of a totally enclosed heat pipe technology Air Cooled. On June 12, 2012, HEPV-DE was granted Patent No. 8,198,770 covering Heat Cooled Bearings “Bearing Cooler.”  On October 9th, 2012, HEPV-DE was awarded Patent No. 8,283,818 covering Motor with Heat Pipes, Hermetic Motors.

HPEV began its commercialization stage on March 24, 2011. Since inception, the Company has focused primarily on commercializing its patented and patent pending technologies, research and development activities, organizing the Company, finding and negotiating with vendors, and raising capital.

The patents and patents-pending assigned to HPEV-DE cover thermal dispersion technologies and their applications as well as an electric load assist and on-board auxiliary generation power.  The utilization of thermal technologies should increase the horsepower of electric motors and generators, reduce the cost to produce with reduction of active material and enhance the lifespan and effectiveness of heat-producing components.  The electric load assist is based on the Company’s parallel redundant vehicle platform which makes it possible for conversion of standard vehicles to plug-in hybrid electric vehicles to utilize power in any combination from the gas or diesel engine and an electric motor installed on-board. The technology is both vehicle and energy agnostic.

On April 5, 2012, a Certificate of Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation was filed with the Nevada Secretary of State noting the change in the Company name to HPEV, Inc.; the increase in authorized common stock to 100,000,000 shares; the increase in preferred stock to 15,000,000 shares; and the authorization of the Board to divide or change the powers, preferences, qualifications, limitations and rights of the preferred shares by resolution.

On April 5, 2012, the Board of Directors voted to amend the bylaws and establish the new registered agent in the State of Nevada as InCorp Services.  It voted to change the number and titles of corporate officers and to enable the alteration, amendment or repeal of the bylaws either by approval of a majority of shareholders or by the approval of the Board.  It also removed clauses that restricted the duties and authority of the Board committees as well as removed a clause regarding the resignation of Officers.  Finally, it appointed Timothy Hassett, Chief Executive Officer; Quentin Ponder, Chief Financial Officer (he remains Treasurer); Theodore Banzhaf, President; and Judson Bibb, Vice President (he remains Secretary).

On April 6, 2012, the Board of Directors amended other articles and sections of the bylaws.  Specifically, they voted to increase the number of directors, to enable the filling of vacancies on the board of directors by majority vote of the remaining directors or director and to appoint Timothy Hassett and Quentin Ponder to serve as Chairman of the Board and Vice Chairman, respectively.

On April 20, 2012, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) approved the name change from Z3 Enterprises, Inc. to HPEV, Inc and the symbol change from BIBB to WARM.  The changes took effect on April 23, 2012.

Going Concern

As a result of our financial condition, we have received a report from our independent registered public accounting firm for our financial statements for the period from March 24, 2011 (Inception) to December 31, 2011 that includes an explanatory paragraph describing the uncertainty as to our ability to continue as a going concern.  In order to continue as a going concern, we must effectively balance many factors and begin to generate revenue, so that we can fund our operations from our sales and revenues.  If we are not able to do this, we may not be able to continue as an operating company.
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Fiscal Year Ended December 31, 2011

As the Company was in the process of commercializing its technologies, we had no revenues for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011.
 
Operating expenses from inception through December 31, 2011, or fiscal 2011, were $5,124,215.

Our operating expenses have consisted primarily of professional fees, payments to consultants and research and development. The Company incurred $1,604,580 of equity compensation to consultants, $2,650,000 of director compensation to Judson Bibb which were paid from shares contributed by PPEG, $100,000 in loss on Trinity Spring deposit and loss on intellectual property deposit of $75,000.
 
The Company incurred net losses of $5,124,215 since inception.

INCOME TAXES

During the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company recorded an income tax benefit from continuing operations of $461,548. We provided a full valuation allowance on the net deferred tax asset, consisting of net operating loss carry forwards, because management has determined that it is more likely than not that we will not earn income sufficient to realize the deferred tax assets during the carry forward period.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

During the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company had a working capital of $45,809.  Cash outflow from operating activities was $475,929. The majority of which consisted of professional fees, payments to consultants and research and development. Cash outflow from investing activities were $44,527 consisting of direct legal fees incurred for patents assigned to HPEV.  Cash inflow from financing activities of $598,817 consisted of $548,407 in loans from PPEG and $50,000 from issuances of common stock via subscription agreements.

We have an accumulated deficit since inception of $5,124,215 and our auditors have expressed substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern unless we are able to generate revenues.

Management believes the Company’s funds are insufficient to provide for its short term projected needs for operations. The Company may decide to sell additional equity or increase its borrowings in order to fund increased product development or for other purposes.

We have no off-sheet balance arrangements or obligations or other interests that could affect finances or operations.

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

We currently do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.
 
Results of Operations for the Three and Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012

We had no revenues for the three month period ended September 30, 2012.  Our operating expenses were $530,708, consisting entirely of consulting fees, professional fees, research and development, and general and administrative expenses as we continued our initial capital raise and negotiated contracts with potential clients.

We also had no revenues for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012. Our operating income was ($560,712). The core expenses consisted of consulting fees, professional fees, research and development, general and administrative expenses totaling $2,089,288. For accounting purposes, they were offset by a director stock compensation of $2,650,000 which was rescinded on April 13, 2012.

Comparison of Operating Results for the Three Months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011

REVENUE AND OPERATING EXPENSES:

For the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, we had no revenues.

As mentioned above, we have tried to minimize our operating expenses. The expenses for the third quarter of 2011 consisted primarily of professional fees and payments to independent contractors.  For the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, our total operating expenses were $530,708 and $484,003, respectively. The majority of the increase in operating expenses was due to increased spending on independent contractors. Despite our focus on negotiating agreements for new business projects and potential investments in our company,  expenditures for professional fees decreased in the third quarter of 2012. To conserve cash, we deferred payments for legal services by issuing warrants. Our total operating expenses for all of 2011 were $5,124,215 which includes a director’s stock compensation expense of $2,650,000 which was rescinded on April 13, 2012.

For the three months ended September 30, 2012, we had a net loss of $1,027,195. For the three months ended September 30, 2011, we incurred a net loss of $484,003. Our net loss for all of 2011 was $5,124,215 including the director’s stock compensation expense.

Our loss per share during the third quarter of 2012 was nominal.  During the third quarter of 2011, it was nominal.

Comparison of the Operating Results for the Nine Months ended September 30, 2012 and from Inception (March 24, 2011) to September 30, 2011

For the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and from inception to September 30, 2011, we had no revenues.
 
We incurred total operating expenses (income) of ($560,712) for the nine month period ended September 30, 2012, as compared to total operating expenses of $1,763,603 for the period from inception to September 30, 2011.

    The decrease in net operating loss for 2012 is due primarily to the offset of the director’s stock compensation of $2,650,000. The $416,550 increase in research and development for 2012 was the result of the move from planning and engineering to actual development and production of our initial conversion. The increased activity was also reflected in the general and administrative costs which rose by $41,221. To conserve cash, we deferred payments for legal services by issuing warrants that resulted in professional fees decreasing by $106,433. Consulting fees also decreased by $25,653. The decrease in consulting fees for the first three quarters of 2012 was due to a move from planning and engineering to production of our initial conversion.

For the nine month period ended September 30, 2012, we incurred a net loss of  $235,758 due to the director’s stock compensation offset , or ($0.00) per share, as compared to a net loss of $1,763,603, or $0.04 per share, for the period from inception to September 30, 2011. 
 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Introduction

During the three months ended September 30, 2012, because we did not generate any revenues, we had negative operating cash flows.  Our cash on hand as of September 30, 2012 was $19. The cash spent during the quarter came primarily from the issuance of notes payable to a related party and a third party.  Our monthly cash flow burn rate is approximately $85,000.  As a result, we have significant cash needs.  We anticipate that these needs will be satisfied through the sale of our securities until such time as our cash flows from operations will satisfy our cash flow needs.

Our cash, current assets, total assets, current liabilities, and total liabilities as of September 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively, are as follows (unaudited):

Our cash decreased by $78,342 as of September 30, 2012 as compared to December 31, 2011 because of the reduction in loans from related parties.  Our total current assets and total assets decreased by $80,938 and $55,745, respectively, during the same periods, primarily due to the reduction in prepaid expenses for investor relations and communications.

Our current liabilities increased by $834,999 as of September 30, 2012 as compared to December 31, 2011 primarily because of an increase in accounts payable of $272,627loans payable of $436,222, and accounts payable to a related party of $66,500.  Our total liabilities increased by the same $834,999 for the same reasons.

In order to repay our obligations in full or in part when due, we will be required to raise significant capital from other sources.  There is no assurance, however, that we will be successful in these efforts.

Cash Requirements

Our cash on hand as of September 30, 2012 was $19.  The cash spent during the quarter came primarily from the issuance of notes payable to a related party and loans. Our monthly cash flow burn rate is approximately $85,000.  As a result, we have significant cash needs.

MARKET PRICE OF AND DIVIDENDS ON REGISTRANT’S COMMON EQUITY AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS
 
Our common stock is not quoted on any exchange.  Our common stock was previously quoted on the OTC Bulletin Board (the OTCBB). On March 26, 2010, it was removed from the OTCBB due to lack of a quotation by a market maker. Our common stock is currently quoted on the OTCQB under the trading symbol WARM. Our common stock did not trade prior to September 2010. Trading in stocks quoted on the OTCQB is often thin and is characterized by wide fluctuations in trading prices due to many factors that may have little to do with a company’s operations or business prospects. We cannot assure you that there will be a market for our common stock in the future.

OTCQB securities are not listed or traded on the floor of an organized national or regional stock exchange. Instead, OTCQB securities transactions are conducted through a telephone and computer network connecting dealers in stocks.

For the periods indicated, the following table sets forth the high and low bid prices per share of common stock. The following quotations reflect the high and low bids for our shares of common stock based on inter-dealer prices, without retail mark-up, mark-down or commission and may not represent actual transactions. All prices are split-adjusted to reflect the 6-for-1 stock split in September 2010.

Penny Stock Rules

Our shares of Common Stock are subject to the "penny stock" rules of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and various rules under this Act. In general terms, "penny stock" is defined as any equity security that has a market price less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. The rules provide that any equity security is considered to be a penny stock unless that security is registered and traded on a national securities exchange meeting specified criteria set by the SEC, authorized for quotation from the NASDAQ stock market, issued by a registered investment company, and excluded from the definition on the basis of price (at least $5.00 per share), or based on the issuer's net tangible assets or revenues. In the last case, the issuer's net tangible assets must exceed $3,000,000 if in continuous operation for at least three years or $5,000,000 if in operation for less than three years, or the issuer's average revenues for each of the past three years must exceed $6,000,000.

Trading in shares of penny stock is subject to additional sales practice requirements for broker-dealers who sell penny stocks to persons other than established customers and accredited investors. Accredited investors, in general, include individuals with assets in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000 (or $300,000 together with their spouse), and certain institutional investors. For transactions covered by these rules, broker-dealers must make a special suitability determination for the purchase of the security and must have received the purchaser's written consent to the transaction prior to the purchase. Additionally, for any transaction involving a penny stock, the rules require the delivery, prior to the first transaction, of a risk disclosure document relating to the penny stock. A broker-dealer also must disclose the commissions payable to both the broker-dealer and the registered representative, and current quotations for the security. Finally, monthly statements must be sent disclosing recent price information for the penny stocks. These rules may restrict the ability of broker-dealers to trade or maintain a market in our common stock, to the extent it is penny stock, and may affect the ability of shareholders to sell their shares.
 
Dividends

 We never paid cash dividends and have no plans to do so in the foreseeable future. Our future dividend policy will be determined by our board of directors and will depend upon a number of factors, including our financial condition and performance, our cash needs and expansion plans, income tax consequences, and the restrictions that applicable laws, our current preferred stock instruments, and our future credit arrangements may then impose.

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS, AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

Certain Relationships and Related Transactions

The Company and the Purchaser also entered into a Registration Rights Agreement, dated December 14, 2012 (the “Registration Rights Agreement”). Pursuant to the Registration Rights Agreement, the Company shall file a registration statement to register the shares issuable upon conversion of the Preferred Stock and the Debenture (described below) and the shares issuable upon the exercise of the Warrants. If the Registration Statement is not filed within thirty days of the Closing Date, then the number of Warrant Shares shall be increased by 500,000 to 6,500,000. If the Securities and Exchange Commission has not declared the Registration Statement effective within 120 days of the Closing Date, then the Company shall pay to each holder of Preferred Shares an amount in cash per Preferred Share held equal to the product of (i) $5,000.00 multiplied by (ii) the product of (A) .02 multiplied by (B) the number of months after the Effectiveness Deadline that the Registration Statement is not declared effective by the SEC.
 
 
Each share of the Preferred Stock is convertible into 20,000 shares of Company’s common stock and under certain circumstances the Preferred Stock is convertible into Senior Convertible Notes. The Conversion Price of the Preferred Stock is equal to the $2,500.
 
 
In connection with the sale of the Preferred Stock, on December 17, 2012, the Company filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada a Certificate of Designations of the Rights, Preferences, Privileges and Restrictions, which have not been set forth in the Certificate of Incorporation of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Certificate of Designations”).
 
 
The Preferred Stock has rights as if each share of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock were converted into twenty thousand (20,000) shares of Common Stock.
 
 
The holders of each share of Preferred Stock then outstanding shall be entitled to be paid, out of the Available Funds and Assets (as defined in the "Certificate of Designations”), and prior and in preference to any payment or distribution (or any setting apart of any payment or distribution) of any Available Funds and Assets (as defined in the "Certificate of Designations”) on any shares of Common Stock, an amount per share equal to the Liquidation Price ($2,500 per share of the Preferred Stock) of the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock.
 
 
In the event a Registration Statement has not been declared effective by the United States Securities Exchange Commission within 180 calendar days from and after the Closing Date, the holders of at least two-thirds (2/3) of the then outstanding shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock may deliver a written notice to the Company electing the conversion of all Series A Convertible Preferred Stock to Debentures. Upon receipt of such notice, the outstanding shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock shall be converted to Debentures and as a result the Company would issue Debentures having a principal amount of up to $1,000,000.
 
 
The warrants may be exercised on a cashless basis in which the holder may be entitled to obtain a certificate of shares of the Company’s common stock equal to the quotient obtained by dividing [(A-B) (X)] by (A), where:
 
 
(A) = the average of the daily VWAPs for the three (3) Trading Days immediately preceding the date of such election;

(B) = the Exercise Price of this Warrant, as adjusted; and

(X) = the number of Warrant Shares issuable upon exercise of this Warrant in accordance with the terms of this Warrant by means of a cash exercise rather than a cashless exercise.

Pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement, the Company may sell the Purchaser up to 200 additional shares of Preferred Stock and warrants to purchase up to 6,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. The Company shall have the option to require Purchaser to purchase up to these additional Two Hundred (200) Preferred Shares and associated Warrants at a Subsequent Closing in the event that written certification (“Certification Notice”) shall have been received by the Company from a federally licensed testing facility reasonably acceptable to Purchaser, evidencing that four (4) motors incorporating the Company’s technology have been comprehensively tested in accordance with applicable NEMA, ANSI and IEEE standards and that the results of these tests meet or exceed the minimum requirements for certification under those standards; that those same four (4) motors incorporating the Company’s technology have passed tests with respect to (i) IEEE 112 in Methods E, E1, F or F1 with a maximum horsepower of 4,000 for F or F1, (ii) sound pressure testing to IEEE 85 and NEMA MG1 20 standards, (iii) bearing temperature testing, (iv) speed versus torque/current testing, (v) polarization index testing per IEEE 45 standards, and (vi) IEEE 112 Method B for full efficiency; and that testing evidences an improvement in power density of at least Twelve Percent (12.00%) compared to the same motor not incorporating HPEV technology. In the event the Company shall not have received the Certification Notice within one hundred eighty (180) calendar days after the date of the initial Closing Date, Purchaser shall have a twelve (12) month option, exercisable during such period at its sole discretion by delivery of written notice to the Company, to purchase the additional Two Hundred (200) Preferred Shares and associated Warrants in a Subsequent Closing to be held within seven (7) days of such notice.
 
In connection with the sale of the Preferred Stock and Warrants, the Company and the Purchaser entered into a Patent and Securities Agreement. Pursuant to the Patent and Security Agreement, the Company may, under certain circumstances, grant to the Purchaser a security interest in certain patents set forth in the Patent and Security Agreement.
 
In connection with the foregoing, the Company relied upon the exemption from securities registration afforded by Rule 506 of Regulation D as promulgated by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and/or Section 4(2) of the Securities Act. No advertising or general solicitation was employed in offering the securities. The offerings and sales were made to one investor who is an accredited investor, and transfer was restricted by the Company in accordance with the requirements of the Securities Act.
 
Except as outlined above, none of the following parties has, during the year ended December 31, 2012, had any material interest, direct or indirect, in any transaction with us or in any presently proposed transaction that has or will materially affect us, other than as noted in this section:

 
Any of our directors or officers,

 
Any person proposed as a nominee for election as a director,

 
Any person who beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, shares carrying more than 5% of the voting rights attached to our outstanding shares of common stock,

 
Any of our promoters, and

 
Any relative or spouse of any of the foregoing persons who has the same house as such person.
 

Director Independence

The Company complies with the standards of "independence" under the NASDAQ Marketplace Rules. Accordingly, a director will only qualify as an "independent director" if, in the opinion of our Board of Directors, that person does not have a material relationship with our company which would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director. A director who is, or at any time during the past three years, was employed by the Company or by any parent or subsidiary of the Company, shall not be considered independent. At this time none of our Directors qualify as such.

DISCLOSURE OF COMMISSION POSITION ON INDEMNIFICATION FOR SECURITIES ACT LIABILITIES

 
Our directors and officers are indemnified by our bylaws against amounts actually and necessarily incurred by them in connection with the defense of any action, suit or proceeding in which they are a party by reason of being or having been directors or officers of the Company. Our certificate of incorporation provides that none of our directors or officers shall be personally liable for damages for breach of any fiduciary duty as a director or officer involving any act or omission of any such director or officer. Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, may be permitted to such directors, officers and controlling persons pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, we have been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable.
 
 
In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities, other than the payment by us of expenses incurred or paid by such director, officer or controlling person in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding, is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, we will, unless in the opinion of counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
  
LEGAL MATTERS

The validity of the shares offered hereby will be passed upon for us by Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP, 61 Broadway, New York, New York 10006.

HPEV, Inc.
(A Development Stage Company)
NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
September 30, 2012
UNAUDITED

The accompanying consolidated financial statements of HPEV, Inc. (“HPEV” or the “Company”) are unaudited, but in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments) necessary to fairly state the Company’s financial position, results of operations, and cash flows as of and for the dates and periods presented.  The financial statements of the Company are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information.

These unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s audited financial statements and footnotes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period from inception (March 24, 2011) to December 31, 2011, filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “Commission”).  The results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the entire year ending December 31, 2012 or for any future period.

NOTE 1 – DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
 
HPEV, Inc., a Nevada corporation (formerly known as Bibb Corporation and Z3 Enterprises, Inc.) (hereinafter referred to as “HPEV” or the” Company”), was incorporated in the State of Nevada on July 22, 2002.

On March 29, 2011, the Company (under the name Z3 Enterprises) entered into a Share Exchange Agreement to acquire 100 shares, constituting all of the issued and outstanding shares of HPEV Inc., a Delaware corporation (“HPEV-DE”), in consideration for the issuance of 22,000,000 shares of Company common stock.  Upon closing of the Share Exchange on April 15, 2011, HPEV-DE became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

For accounting purposes, the acquisition of HPEV-DE by the Company was recorded as a reverse acquisition of a public company and recapitalization of the Company based on factors demonstrating that HPEV-DE represents the accounting acquirer.

HPEV-DE was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on March 24, 2011 to commercialize the technology from patents developed by two of its shareholders.  Activities during its start-up stage were nominal. 

Subsequent to the closing of the Share Exchange, the Company changed its business focus to the commercialization of HPEV-DE technologies in a variety of markets by licensing its thermal dispersion technologies to engine, generator and vehicle component manufacturers, among others.  The Company also plans to license its hybrid electric vehicle conversion system to fleet owners, vehicle dealers and service centers.

On May 5, 2011, a total of 7 patents (1 granted, 6 pending) were assigned to HPEV-DE by Thermal Motors Innovations, LLC, a company controlled by the developers of the patents.  On March 13, 2012, HPEV-DE was awarded a patent for a composite heat structure application in submersible motors.  On April 2, 2012, HPEV-DE received a Notice of Allowance regarding a patent covering the incorporation of a totally enclosed heat pipe technology in bearings and related structures. On April 3, 2012, the Company received notice that one of its patents-pending - a totally enclosed heat pipe cooled motor – had been awarded.  On June 14, 2012, the Company received notice that another one of its patents-pending – a heat pipe application for hermetic motors – had been awarded. Three additional patents are pending and two additional patents-pending remain to be assigned to HPEV-DE.  Therefore, as of September 30, 2012, HPEV-DE, has been assigned the rights to five patents and three patents-pending with two remaining to be assigned. See Note 9 – Intellectual Property.

The patents and patents-pending assigned to HPEV-DE cover thermal dispersion technologies and their applications as well as an electric load assist.  The utilization of thermal technologies should increase the horsepower of electric motors and enhance the lifespan and effectiveness of heat-producing vehicle components.  The electric load assist is based on the Company’s parallel vehicle platform which makes it possible for hybrid electric vehicles to utilize power in any combination from the gas or diesel engine and an electric motor installed on-board.

On April 5, 2012, a Certificate of Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation was filed with the Nevada Secretary of State noting the change in the Company name to HPEV, Inc.; the increase in authorized common stock to 100,000,000 shares; the increase in preferred stock to 15,000,000 shares; and the authorization of the Board to divide or change the powers, preferences, qualifications, limitations and rights of the preferred shares by resolution.

On April 5, 2012, the Board of Directors voted to amend the bylaws and establish the new registered agent in the State of Nevada as InCorp Services.  It voted to change the number and titles of corporate officers and to enable the alteration, amendment or repeal of the bylaws either by approval of a majority of shareholders or by the approval of the Board.  It also removed clauses that restricted the duties and authority of the Board committees as well as removed a clause regarding the resignation of Officers.  Finally, it appointed Timothy Hassett, Chief Executive Officer; Quentin Ponder, Chief Financial Officer (he remains Treasurer); Theodore Banzhaf, President; and Judson Bibb, Vice President (he remains Secretary).
 
 
 
F-4

 

On April 6, 2012, the Board of Directors amended other articles and sections of the bylaws.  Specifically, they voted to increase the number of directors, to enable the filling of vacancies on the board of directors by majority vote of the remaining directors or director and to appoint Timothy Hassett and Quentin Ponder to serve as Chairman of the Board and Vice Chairman, respectively.

On April 20, 2012, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) approved the name change from Z3 Enterprises, Inc. to HPEV, Inc and the symbol change from BIBB to WARM.  The changes took effect on April 23, 2012.

As operations have consisted of general administrative and pre-production activities, the Company is considered a development stage company in accordance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 915.

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the recoverability of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.  Since the reverse merger of HPEV, Inc. and Z3 Enterprises, Inc. on April 15, 2011, cash outlays have been $1,024,570 from operating activities and $69,720 from investing activities which have been financed primarily through loans. The net book loss (which includes the tax loss carryforward of Z3 Enterprises prior to the reverse merger) is approximately $5,359,973 during the period from March 24, 2011 (Date of Inception) through September 30, 2012. The Company has not fully commenced its operations and is still in the development stages, raising substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate future profitable operations and/or to obtain the necessary financing from shareholders or other sources to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. At this time, the Company is seeking additional sources of capital through the issuance of debt, equity, or joint venture agreements, but there can be no assurance the Company will be successful in accomplishing its objectives.
 
These financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts, or amounts and classification of liabilities that might result from this uncertainty.

It is possible management may decide that the Company cannot continue with its business operations as outlined in the current business plan because of a lack of financial resources and may be forced to seek other potential business opportunities that may be available.

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
This summary of significant accounting policies of HPEV, Inc. is presented to assist in understanding the Company’s consolidated financial statements.  The consolidated financial statements and notes are representations of the Company’s management, who are responsible for their integrity and objectivity.  These accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements.

Accounting Method

The Company’s financial statements are prepared using the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Principles of Consolidation
 
These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of HPEV-DE and its parent HPEV (formerly known as Z3 Enterprises).  On April 20, 2012, the Company officially changed its name to HPEV, Inc.

All significant inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated.

Year end

The Company’s year-end is December 31.
 
Cash and Cash Equivalents

For purposes of the statement of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid investments and short-term debt instruments with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents.
 
 
 
F-5

 
 
Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenue on arrangements in accordance with Securities and Exchange Commission Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 101, “Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements” and No. 104, “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.  For the quarters ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, and for the period from inception to September 30, 2012, the Company did not report any revenues.

Earnings Per Share

The Company has adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 260-10 which provides for calculation of “basic” and “diluted” earnings per share.  Basic earnings per share includes no dilution and is computed by dividing net income or loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average common shares outstanding for the period.  Diluted earnings per share reflect the potential dilution of securities that could share in the earnings of an entity.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The fair value of the Company’s assets and liabilities, which qualify as financial instruments under Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) guidance regarding disclosures about fair value of financial instruments, approximate the carrying amounts presented in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets.

Effective January 1, 2008, the Company adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 157 Fair Value Measurements (“SFAS 157”), superseded by ASC 820-10, which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands required disclosure about fair value measurements of assets and liabilities.  The impact of adopting ASC 820-10 was not significant to the Company’s consolidated financial statements.  ASC 820-10 defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date.  ASC 820-10 also establishes a fair value hierarchy, which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value.  The standard describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

 
Level 1 – Valuation based on quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
 
 
Level 2 – Valuation based on quoted market prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets.
 
 
Level 3 – Valuation based on unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity, therefore requiring management’s best estimate of what market participants would use as fair value.

In instances where the determination of the fair value measurement is based on inputs from different levels of the fair value hierarchy, the level in the fair value hierarchy within which the entire fair value measurement falls is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety.  Our assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurement in its entirety requires judgment, and considers factors specific to the asset or liability.  The valuation of our derivative liability is determined using Level 1 inputs, which consider (i) time value, (ii) current market and (iii) contractual prices. 

Fair value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management as of September 30, 2012.  The respective carrying value of certain on-balance-sheet financial instruments approximated their fair values due to the short-term nature of these instruments.  These financial instruments include cash, accounts payable and accrued expenses, loan payable and notes payable – related party.  

Income Taxes

The Company provides for federal and state income taxes payable, as well as for those deferred because of the timing differences between reporting income and expenses for financial statement purposes versus tax purposes.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the carrying amount of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using the enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recoverable or settled.  The effect of a change in tax rates is recognized as income or expense in the period of the change.  A valuation allowance is established, when necessary, to reduce deferred income tax assets to the amount that is more likely than not to be realized.

Upon inception, the Company adopted the provisions of FASB Interpretation No. 48, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes (“FIN 48”), superseded by ASC 740-10.  The Company did not recognize a liability as a result of the implementation of ASC 740-10.  A reconciliation of the beginning and ending amount of unrecognized tax benefits has not been provided since there is no unrecognized benefit as of the date of adoption.  The Company did not recognize interest expense or penalties as a result of the implementation of ASC 740-10.  If there were an unrecognized tax benefit, the Company would recognize interest related to unrecognized tax benefits in interest expense and penalties in other operating expenses.
 
 
 
F-6

 
 
Employee Stock Based Compensation

The FASB issued SFAS No.123 (revised 2004), Share-Based Payment, which was superseded by ASC 718-10.  ASC 718-10 provides investors and other users of financial statements with more complete and neutral financial information, by requiring that the compensation cost relating to share-based payment transactions be recognized in financial statements.  That cost will be measured based on the fair value of the equity or liability instruments issued. ASC 718-10 covers a wide range of share-based compensation arrangements, including share options, restricted share plans, performance-based awards, share appreciation rights and employee share purchase plans.  As of September 30, 2012, the Company has not implemented an employee stock based compensation plan.

Non-Employee Stock Based Compensation

The Company accounts for stock based compensation awards issued to non-employees for services, as prescribed by ASC 718-10, at either the fair value of the services rendered or the instruments issued in exchange for such services, whichever is more readily determinable, using the measurement date guidelines enumerated in EITF 96-18, Accounting for Equity Instruments That Are Issued to Other Than Employees for Acquiring, or in Conjunction with Selling, Goods or Services, which was superseded by ASC 505-50.  The Company issues compensatory shares for services including, but not limited to, executive, management, accounting, operations, corporate communication, financial and administrative consulting services.

Use of Estimates

The process of preparing consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires the use of estimates and assumptions regarding certain types of assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses.  Such estimates primarily relate to unsettled transactions and events as of the date of the consolidated financial statements.  Accordingly, upon settlement, actual results may differ from estimated amounts.

Research and development

Costs of research and development are expensed in the period in which they are incurred.

Recent accounting standards

The Company has evaluated the recent accounting pronouncements through ASU 2012-07 and believes that none of them will have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.

Reclassification
Upon completion of the Company’s September 30, 2012 financial statements, accounting reclassification adjustments were made for certain warrants which were issued as a cost of financing.  Warrants valued at $99,229 and previously included in professional fees were reclassified from professional fees and included in interest expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and from inception (March 24, 2011) to June 30, 2012.  There was no impact on the net loss for the periods then ended.

The value of these warrants were estimated by using the Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions: expected life of 2.5 years; risk free interest rate of 0.62%; dividend yield of 0% and expected volatility of 225%. To account for such grants to non-employees, we recorded the issuance as interest expense in the amount of $99,229.

The value of these warrants was estimated by using the Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions: expected life of 2.5 years; risk free interest rate of 0.62%; dividend yield of 0% and expected volatility of 218%. To account for such grants to non-employees, we recorded the issuance as interest expense in the amount of $110,029.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
 

 
To the Board of Directors and Stockholders
Z3 Enterprises Inc.
 
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Z3 Enterprises Inc. (A Development Stage Company) (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2011 and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity and cash flows from inception (March 24, 2011) through December 31, 2011. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated 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 included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.  An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, 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 consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Z3 Enterprises Inc. (A Development Stage Company) as of December 31, 2011 and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity and cash flows from inception (March 24, 2011) through December 31, 2011 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company has suffered losses from operations, which raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 1. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
