6. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

On June 29, 2009, the Company entered into a Support Services Agreement with Cardiff Partners, LLC (formerly Strands Management Company, LLC) (the “Cardiff Agreement”).  Matt Szot, our former Chief Financial Officer and former Secretary, is the Chief Financial Officer of Cardiff. Keith Moore and David Walters, former members of our board of directors, each own a 50% interest and is a managing member of Cardiff.   Pursuant to the Cardiff Agreement, in consideration for providing certain services to the Company, Cardiff is entitled to a monthly fee in the amount of $10,000.   The Company also issued 50,000 shares of the Company’s common stock to Mr. Szot pursuant to the Cardiff Agreement.  The initial term of the Cardiff Agreement expired June 28, 2010. The Company incurred $120,500 in consulting fees under the terms of the agreement for the year ended October 31, 2010, which is included in consulting expenses.  On January 28, 2010, the Company issued 448,340 shares of common stock as payment in full of $50,000 of outstanding balances due to Cardiff.  As of October 31, 2010, $49,500 was outstanding under the agreement and is included in common stock to be issued.

 

On January 12, 2010, the Company amended the Cardiff Agreement.  Under the amended Cardiff Agreement, Cardiff has the option to accept payment of outstanding cash compensation owed to it under its agreements with the Company in the form of shares of our common stock.  The number of shares to be issued will be calculated by dividing the outstanding balance to be paid by 50% of the average of the closing prices for the Company’s common stock during the 20 trading day period ending one trading day prior to the date that notice accepting shares in payment is sent to us.  In addition, under the amended Cardiff Agreement, Cardiff has provided and will provide the Company with transaction execution support services in connection with the HAC transaction, including due diligence, business review of relevant transaction documentation and audit support.   As compensation for the additional services, in February 2010 the Company issued to Cardiff 2,500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, a Series A common stock purchase warrant to purchase 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock and a Series B common stock purchase warrant to purchase 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock.  The Series A warrant has an exercise price of $0.50 and becomes exercisable on the date that the Company recognizes revenue equal to or exceeding $50,000,000 for any consecutive twelve-month period and expires on January 31, 2015.  The Series B warrant has an exercise price of $1.00 and becomes exercisable on the date that the Company recognizes revenue equal to or exceeding $100,000,000 for any consecutive twelve-month period and expires on January 31, 2018.The warrants have not been included in paid in capital because it is unlikely that in the near term the Company can attain revenue numbers high enough for the warrants to become exercisable.

 

On February 15, 2010, we entered into a placement agency and advisory services agreement with Monarch Bay Associates, LLC, a FINRA member investment banking firm.  Mr. Walters is a manager and 50%-owner of Monarch Bay.  Under the agreement, Monarch Bay was to act as our placement agent on an exclusive basis with respect to private placements of our capital stock and as our exclusive advisor with respect to acquisitions, mergers, joint ventures and similar transactions.   Pursuant to the agreement, Monarch Bay would receive fees equal to (a) 8% of the gross proceeds raised by us in any private placement, plus warrants to purchase 8% of the number of shares of common stock issued or issuable by us in connection with any private placement and (b) up to 5% of the total consideration paid or received by us or our stockholders in any acquisition, merger, joint venture or similar transaction.

 

On October 19, 2010, we entered into a settlement and release agreement with Cardiff Partners, LLC, Monarch Bay Associates, LLC, David Walters, Keith Moore and Matt Szot, collectively referred to as the “Cardiff parties.”  Under the settlement and release agreement, we terminated the aforementioned agreements with Cardiff and Monarch Bay and all other agreements and arrangements between us, on the one hand, and any of the Cardiff parties in exchange for our issuance of 1,838,649 shares of our common stock to Cardiff Partners, LLC.   We also agreed with the Cardiff parties to mutually release each other of all claims, known or unknown.

  

On July 1, 2011, a Complaint was filed in the Superior Court of the State of California, in Orange County, California, by Trans-Pacific Aerospace Company, Inc. and one of our shareholders, Harbin Aerospace Company, LLC, against Monarch Bay Associates, LLC, a FINRA member firm, and certain of its officers, employees and affiliates, including David Walters, Keith Moore, Mathew Szot and Cardiff Partners, LLC (“Defendants”). The Complaint alleges that Monarch Bay Associates entered into investment banking agreements initially with Harbin Aerospace and then subsequently with Trans-Pacific Aerospace based upon certain misrepresentations and omissions of material fact by Monarch Bay and its principals, David Walters and Keith Moore. The Complaint further alleges that Monarch Bay, Walters, Moore and Szot breached their fiduciary duties owed to Trans-Pacific Aerospace and Harbin Aerospace and otherwise engaged in acts of securities and common law fraud, professional negligence and unlawful practices under the California Business and Professions Code. The Complaint seeks, among other things, (i) general and special damages in an amount to be proven at trial; (ii) the rescission of certain material agreements entered into between Trans-Pacific Aerospace or Harbin Aerospace, on the one hand, and the Defendants, on the other, and (iii) the Defendants return of all cash and stock-based compensation received from either Trans-Pacific Aerospace or Harbin Aerospace in breach of the defendants’ fiduciary duties or applicable law. David Walters and Keith Moore are former members of the board of directors of Trans-Pacific Aerospace and Walters and Mathew Szot are former executive officers of Trans-Pacific Aerospace. The Defendants as a group are believed to own in excess of 9% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Trans-Pacific Aerospace.

 

On September 12, 2011, the Defendants filed a Cross-Complaint against Trans-Pacific Aerospace or Harbin Aerospace alleging the claims of Trans-Pacific Aerospace and Harbin Aerospace were released pursuant to a Settlement Agreement and Release dated October 19, 2010 between Trans-Pacific Aerospace and the Defendants. In their Cross-Complaint, the Defendants allege that although Harbin Aerospace was not a party to the Settlement Agreement and Release, Harbin Aerospace had effectively transferred to Trans-Pacific Aerospace any claims Harbin Aerospace had against the Defendants as part of Harbin Aerospace’s sale of assets to Trans-Pacific Aerospace in February 2010, and that such claims were then effectively released by Trans-Pacific Aerospace by way of the Settlement Agreement and Release dated October 19, 2010.

 

On December 5, 2011, the Defendants filed a First Amended Cross-Complaint against the Company and Harbin Aerospace for declaratory relief, breach of contract, specific performance, and indemnity, alleging that the claims of the Company and Harbin were released pursuant to the aforementioned settlement agreement. The Company and Harbin have filed an Answer to the First Amended Cross-Complaint denying the allegations and setting forth affirmative defenses. The Company and Harbin believe that the allegations contained within this First Amended Cross-Complaint are meritless.

 

On January 30, 2013, the Company, Harbin, the Defendants, and other parties entered into a settlement agreement (the “Settlement Agreement”) resolving the action.  Under the terms of the Settlement Agreement, Defendant Cardiff Partners, LLC (“Cardiff”) agreed to return 3,728,503 shares of the Company’s common stock to the Company for cancellation.  The Company agreed that Cardiff could retain 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, and that the retained shares would be subject to a lock-up/leak-out arrangement.  In addition, the parties agreed to amend certain Series A and Series B common stock purchase warrants held by Cardiff to extend the expiration date of said warrants to March 20, 2021 (as described in Note 8) and to allow for the vesting of such warrants upon a “change in control” of the Company.  In addition, the Company agreed to indemnify the Defendants for certain matters arising out of the Settlement Agreement and for certain matter arising out the Defendants’ status or conduct as a director, officer, employee or agent of the Company.  The parties agreed to dismiss the action with prejudice and the Company, Harbin, and the other parties, on the one hand, and the Defendants, on the other hand, have agreed to a full and complete settlement and general release of all claims asserted by the parties regarding the subject matter of the action.  The court shall retain jurisdiction to enforce the terms of the Settlement Agreement.

 

On June 29, 2009, the Company entered into an Employment Agreement with David Walters, its former Chief Executive Officer and former member of its Board of Directors.  Under the agreement, which had a term of one year, Mr. Walters received a base salary of $180,000, plus 500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock.  On January 12, 2010, the Company amended the Employment Agreement with Mr. Walters.  Under the amended agreement, Mr. Walters had the option to accept payment of outstanding cash compensation owed to him under the agreement in the form of shares of the Company’s common stock.  The number of shares to be issued is calculated by dividing the outstanding balance to be paid by 50% of the average of the closing prices for our common stock during the 20 trading day period ending one trading day prior to the date that notice accepting shares in payment is sent to the Company.     On January 28, 2010, the Company issued 941,514 shares of common stock as payment in full of outstanding balances due to Mr. Walters totaling $105,000.  As of October 31, 2010, no amounts were outstanding under the agreement.  On October 19, 2010 the Agreement was terminated by mutual agreement of the parties.

  

As part of the acquisition of Harbin Aerospace Company (HAC), the Company assumed $200,000 of obligations under a note payable plus $11,737 of accrued interest. The holder of the note payable (Theodora Kobal) is the mother-in-law of William McKay, the Chairman of the Company’s Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer. On June 4, 2010, the Company entered into an amended and restated convertible promissory note with Theodora Kobal which amended and restated in its entirety the Promissory Note in the original principal amount of $200,000 issued by HAC to Theodora Kobal on March 16, 2009, and assumed by the Company on February 1, 2010 in connection with its acquisition of the assets of HAC. The amended and restated note has a principal amount of $216,455 which included all outstanding interest due on the note. The amended and restated note includes a fixed conversion price of $0.058 per share, 7% interest rate per annum and was due and payable on June 3, 2011. In June 2010, the Company issued 2,200,000 shares of common stock to the note holder valued at $.058 per the agreement reducing its principal obligation by $127,600 pursuant to conversion requests. The Company has evaluated the conversion feature of the notes and determined that there was a $216,455 beneficial conversion feature on them as the fixed conversion price of $0.058 was less than the fair value of the common stock at the time of issuance. The beneficial conversion feature was recorded as a debt discount on the accompanying balance sheet. The amortization of the debt discount totaled $59,284 and $177,503 for the years ended October 31, 2011 and 2010. On November 22, 2010 the note was further amended, reducing the fixed conversion price to $0.029 per share. During the year ended October 31, 2011, the Company issued 3,063,958 shares of common stock to the note holder valued at $0.029 per the agreement as a full payment of the note payable pursuant to conversion requests. No gain or loss has been recorded because it was converted within the terms of the agreement. Due to the reduction in conversion price at a rate below fair market value, this has been determined to be an induced conversion of debt under ASC 470-20, resulting in $55,000 of expense and corresponding paid in capital for the year ended October 31, 2011.

 

On March 21, 2011, as a consideration to Harbin Aerospace assigning its claim against Monarch, the Company granted an option to purchase 8,000,000 shares of its common stock to William McKay at an exercise price of $0.15 per share in exchange for the outstanding Series A and Series B warrants to purchase a total of 8,000,000 shares of its common stock. The option is fully vested and exercisable and expires on March 20, 2021. The total estimated value using the Black-Scholes Model, based on a volatility rate of 127%, and a call option value of $0.1272, was $1,017,634. For the year ended October 31, 2011, the Company recorded $1,017,634 as stock based compensation expense.

 

On August 25, 2011, in connection with his agreement to serve as the Company’s sole officer, the Company granted an option to purchase 2,000,000 shares of its common stock to William McKay at an exercise price of $0.15 per share. The option vests in three equal amounts on each of the next three anniversary dates of this agreement, beginning August 25, 2012 and is exercisable until August 24, 2021. The total estimated value using the Black-Scholes Model, based on a volatility rate of 127%, and a call option value of $0.0859, was $171,888. For the year ended October 31, 2012 and 2011, $57,296 and $10,663 were amortized as stock based compensation expense, respectively.

 

During the year ended October 31, 2011, Mr. McKay waived $37,025 of the salaries owed to him. During the year ended October 31, 2012, Mr. McKay waived $330,000 of the salaries owed to him which was treated as a capital contribution increasing additional paid in capital by $330,000.
