PART I

 

Item 1. Business

 

We were incorporated as General Aircraft, Inc. on August 9, 2011 in the State of Nevada for the purpose of owning and operating helicopters for use in sightseeing tours and as pilot training aircraft. We currently own one helicopter, a Robinson R44 Raven II, which is used as a rental aircraft in the Las Vegas, Nevada area. The helicopter is hangered at North Las Vegas Airport, an executive and general aviation airport in North Las Vegas, Nevada.

 

We originally leased our helicopter under an Aircraft Use/Management Agreement (“Use and Management Agreement”) dated September 1, 2011 with Elite Aviation VGT, LLC (“Elite”). Under the Use and Management Agreement we were required to pay a number of costs related to maintaining and operating the helicopter which were set-off against our rental income. In an attempt to avoid these costs and increase our bottom line profits, we renegotiated this arrangement with Elite, and on November 1, 2012, at the beginning of this fiscal year, we entered into a new Helicopter Lease Agreement (“Lease Agreement”) which superseded the Use and Management Agreement. The new Lease Agreement (reported as a subsequent event in our 10K for the fiscal year end 2012) contained a simpler arrangement in which we accepted a lesser rental rate of $185 per hour, but without the obligation to cover regular maintenance and repairs, hangar parking fees, insurance or any fuel and oil costs in relation to the helicopter. We thus remained responsible for only the debt service, taxes, license and registration related to the helicopter.

 

The Lease Agreement provided for a minimum use of 40 hours per month and was set to expire on the sooner of December 31, 2014 or the date upon which the helicopter reached a Hobbs register reading of 2,200 hours, the amount of hours of usage in which the FAA requires a full mandatory overhaul of the helicopter by law (the “Time Out Date”).

 

Ultimately, this arrangement with Elite proved to be a much more profitable arrangement for us, but in April of 2013, our helicopter reached the 2,200 hour Time Out Date and thus the lease was terminated and we were required to take the helicopter temporarily out of service for its mandatory safety overhaul. At the time, we anticipated this overhaul the time would take at least 5 months and cost between $200,000 and $220,000 (as projected by the manufacturer).

 

During this time, in August of 2013, we entered into an arrangement with North Star Capital Inc. in which North Star agreed to provide us with a line of credit of up to $220,000 for the overhaul of the helicopter in exchange for a secured note which paid 9.5% interest. The first interest only payment on this line of credit is due on February 2, 2014 with semi-annual payments of interest after that and then a balloon payment due on August 2, 2015. Additionally, each month that the helicopter is placed back in service, we are required to pay 25% of the net rental income received as a principal payment against the Note. A copy of the North Star line of credit Financing and Security Agreement is an exhibit to this report and incorporated herein by this reference.

 

We have paid XL Air Service LLC a total of $180,000 toward the overhaul costs, of which $160,000 was a draw on the North Star line of credit. We now expect the overhaul to be complete before the end of the year and have recently engaged Elite in negotiating a new lease agreement. We anticipate that the overhaul will increase the value of the helicopter by at least the costs incurred as well as increase its hourly revenue earning rate. We are thus negotiating a similar Lease Agreement with Elite, but at a higher rental rate of $200 per hour.

 

On October 8, 2013, we transferred all of our assets and liabilities associated with this aircraft ownership and rental business to a wholly owned subsidiary, General Aircraft, Inc.

 

On February 11, 2013, we appointed a new sole officer and director, Ari L. Nagler, and moved our executive offices to Scottsdale, Arizona. Under Mr. Nagler’s leadership, in addition to our helicopter rental business, we started to develop an online advertising business through a new subsidiary, Shift It Media Co. On February 25, 2013, we also changed our corporate name to “General Sales and Leasing, Inc.” in order to reflect the addition of this new line of business.

Additionally, in May of 2013, we entered into an MOU to obtain certain intellectual property rights to an Optical Touch Sensing Software and Chip-set, new patented technology designed to enhance control over electronic devices. Following some due diligence into this technology, we have decided to abandon it as a potential additional new line of business.

 

During the fourth quarter of this year, we entered into discussions with Xenetic Biosciences plc (“XEN”) regarding a potential all share offer for the entire issued and to be issued share capital of XEN the (“Acquisition”). On November 12, 2013, we reached an agreement on the terms of a recommended proposal for the Acquisition under which we will acquire the entire issued and to be issued share capital of XEN. The Acquisition is to be effected by means of a scheme of arrangement (the “Scheme”) under Part 26 of the Companies Act in the UK by filing a Part 8 Claim with the High Court in London (which was filed on or about November 21, 2013). The Scheme will need to be approved by both 75% of the shareholders of XEN as well as the High Court in London (after a determination of fairness of the transaction) before becoming effective, and there are several other steps that we will need to complete in the process, including a name change and reverse split of 10 to 1. In the event that the acquisition is consummated, certain of the officers and directors of XEN will assume management of our company and we will divest our aircraft and advertising subsidiaries in order to focus fully on the business of XEN.

 

As a consequence, also on November 12, 2013, as part of the Scheme, we entered into an Agreement of Conveyance, Transfer and Assignment of Subsidiaries and Assumption of Obligations with our largest shareholder, Oxbridge Technology Partners, SA (“Oxbridge”), pursuant to which Oxbridge will acquire all of the rights to our current business operations through the purchase of all the shares of our two wholly owned subsidiaries, Shift It Media and General Aircraft, Inc. (the “Hive Out” Agreement). Under the Hive Out Agreement, Oxbridge will cancel its 100,000,000 Common Shares in exchange for: (a) the shares of our two subsidiaries, and (b) the payment of US$430,000 in cash, subject, among other things, to the Scheme becoming Effective. The assets and liabilities associated with such businesses will thereby be transferred to Oxbridge and Oxbridge’s 100,000,000 Shares will be retired to treasury upon the Scheme becoming effective. The Hive Out Agreement is attached hereto, and made a part hereof, by this reference.

 

Under the Scheme, we will issue to the XEN shareholders 56 shares of our common stock for each 175 shares of their common stock. This will result in our immediately issuing an expected total of 130,520,137 shares of our common stock to the XEN Shareholders, which, following our planned 10 to 1 reverse share split and the cancelation of the shares held by Oxbridge in the Hive Out Agreement, will represent over 97% of our issued and outstanding shares.

 

The current time table for approvals and effectiveness of the Scheme is as follows:

 

Court and General Meetings….. December 17, 2013

 

Expected Effective Date of Scheme….. January 23, 2013

 

There can be no assurance that the Acquisition and Scheme will be effectuated (see conditions to Acquisition in the Scheme Document). Additional details and information regarding the Scheme can be found in the “Recommended Offer” and the Scheme Document itself, both provided in our prior reports on form 8K filed on November 13, 2013 (as amended) and November 25, 2013.

 

Item 2. Properties

 

We do not currently own or lease any real property.

 

Item 3. Legal Proceedings

 

We are not a party to any pending legal proceeding. We are not aware of any pending legal proceeding to which any of our officers, directors, or any beneficial holders of 5% or more of our voting securities are adverse to us or have a material interest adverse to us.

 

Item 4. Mine Safety Disclosures

 

Not applicable.

Market Information

 

Our common stock is quoted under the symbol “GAIF” on the OTCBB operated by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) and the OTCQB operated by OTC Markets Group, Inc.  Few market makers continue to participate in the OTCBB system because of high fees charged by FINRA.  Consequently, market makers that once quoted our shares on the OTCBB system may no longer be posting a quotation for our shares. As of the date of this report, however, our shares are quoted by several market makers on the OTCQB. The criteria for listing on either the OTCBB or OTCQB are similar and include that we remain current in our SEC reporting. Our reporting is presently current and, since inception, we have filed our SEC reports on time.

 

The following tables set forth the range of high and low prices for our common stock for the each of the periods indicated as reported by the OTCQB. These quotations reflect inter-dealer prices, without retail mark-up, mark-down or commission and may not necessarily represent actual transactions.

Penny Stock

 

The SEC has adopted rules that regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in penny stocks. Penny stocks are generally equity securities with a market price of less than $5.00, other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ system, provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in such securities is provided by the exchange or system. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prepared by the SEC, that: (a) contains a description of the nature and level of risk in the market for penny stocks in both public offerings and secondary trading; (b) contains a description of the broker's or dealer's duties to the customer and of the rights and remedies available to the customer with respect to a violation of such duties or other requirements of the securities laws; (c) contains a brief, clear, narrative description of a dealer market, including bid and ask prices for penny stocks and the significance of the spread between the bid and ask price; (d) contains a toll-free telephone number for inquiries on disciplinary actions; (e) defines significant terms in the disclosure document or in the conduct of trading in penny stocks; and (f) contains such other information and is in such form, including language, type size and format, as the SEC shall require by rule or regulation.

5

The broker-dealer also must provide, prior to effecting any transaction in a penny stock, the customer with (a) bid and offer quotations for the penny stock; (b) the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction; (c) the number of shares to which such bid and ask prices apply, or other comparable information relating to the depth and liquidity of the market for such stock; and (d) a monthly account statement showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer's account.

 

In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser's written acknowledgment of the receipt of a risk disclosure statement, a written agreement as to transactions involving penny stocks, and a signed and dated copy of a written suitability statement.

 

These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the trading activity for our common stock. Therefore, stockholders may have difficulty selling our securities.

 

Holders of Our Common Stock

 

As of November 26, 2012, we had 135,000,000 shares of our common stock issued and outstanding, held by thirty-two (32) shareholders of record.

 

Dividends

 

There are no restrictions in our articles of incorporation or bylaws that prevent us from declaring dividends. The Nevada Revised Statutes, however, do prohibit us from declaring dividends where after giving effect to the distribution of the dividend:

 

1. we would not be able to pay our debts as they become due in the usual course of business, or;
2. our total assets would be less than the sum of our total liabilities plus the amount that would be needed to satisfy the rights of shareholders who have preferential rights superior to those receiving the distribution.

 

We have not declared any dividends and we do not plan to declare any dividends in the foreseeable future.

 

Item 6. Selected Financial Data

 

A smaller reporting company is not required to provide the information required by this Item.

 

Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

Certain statements, other than purely historical information, including estimates, projections, statements relating to our business plans, objectives, and expected operating results, and the assumptions upon which those statements are based, are “forward-looking statements.” These forward-looking statements generally are identified by the words “believes,” “project,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” “intends,” “strategy,” “plan,” “may,” “will,” “would,” “will be,” “will continue,” “will likely result,” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and assumptions that are subject to risks and uncertainties which may cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. Our ability to predict results or the actual effect of future plans or strategies is inherently uncertain. Factors which could have a material adverse affect on our operations and future prospects on a consolidated basis include, but are not limited to: changes in economic conditions, legislative/regulatory changes, availability of capital, interest rates, competition, and generally accepted accounting principles. These risks and uncertainties should also be considered in evaluating forward-looking statements and undue reliance should not be placed on such statements.

Results of Operations for the Years Ended August 31, 2013 and 2012.

 

During the year ended August 31, 2013, we generated $96,900 in total revenue, bet of cost of sales. Our operating expenses during the year ended August 31, 2013 were $162,457 and consisted of professional fees in the amount of $78,406, depreciation and amortization in the amount of $38,545, officer compensation $15,000, fuel and oil of $8,435, aircraft maintenance and fees of $9,880, management fees of $4,853 and administrative fees in the amount of $7,338. In addition, we incurred interest expense in the amount of $12,947 during the year ended August 31, 2013, as well as a loss on settlement of $10,668. Our net loss for the year ended August 31, 2013 was $89,172. By comparison, during the year ended August 31, 2012, we generated total revenues of $112,786 and incurred a net loss of $129,673.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of August 31, 2013, we had total current assets of $72,943 consisting of cash in the amount of $53,222, accounts receivable of $10,501, and prepaid expenses of $9,220. We had current liabilities of $456,076 as of August 31, 2013, consisting of accounts payable and accrued expenses of $429,693 and accrued interest on our aircraft loan of $26,383.  Accordingly, we had a working capital deficit of $383,133 as of August 31, 2013.

  

Our current aircraft loan is purchase money financing in the principal amount of $212, 812.50 secured by our Robinson R44 Raven II helicopter. The loan bears interest at the rate of six percent (6%) per year, and requires semi-annual interest payments of $6,384, commencing on March 31, 2012, and continuing every six months thereafter. All principal and interest is due under the loan on August 11, 2016.

 

In August of 2013, we entered into an arrangement with North Star Capital Inc. in which North Star agreed to provide us with a line of credit of up to $220,000 for the overhaul of our helicopter in exchange for a secured note which paid 9.5% interest. The first interest only payment on this line of credit is due on February 2, 2014 with semi-annual payments of interest after that and then a balloon payment due on August 2, 2015. Additionally, each month that the helicopter is placed back in service, we are required to pay 25% of the net rental income received as a principal payment against the Note. We have paid a total of $180,000 toward the overhaul costs for the helicopter, of which $160,000 was a draw on the North Star line of credit. We now expect the overhaul to be complete before the end of the year.

 

As discussed in the notes to our financial statements, we have not attained profitable operations and are dependent upon obtaining financing or generating revenue from operations to continue operations for the immediate future.   As a result, our auditor has expressed a substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern. As discussed above, we will be required to seek additional financing in order to perform a mandatory overhaul of our helicopter. We can provide no assurance that such financing will be available on terms acceptable to us, or at all.

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of August 31, 2013, there were no off balance sheet arrangements.

 

Going Concern

 

We have yet to achieve profitable operations and expect to incur further losses in the development of our business, all of which casts substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our 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. Management has no formal plan in place to address this concern but considers that we will be able to obtain additional funds by equity financing and/or related party advances, however there is no assurance of additional funding being available or on acceptable terms, if at all.

Critical Accounting Policies

 

In December 2001, the SEC requested that all registrants list their most “critical accounting polices” in the Management Discussion and Analysis. The SEC indicated that a “critical accounting policy” is one which is both important to the portrayal of a company’s financial condition and results, and requires management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. At this time, management does not believe that any of our accounting policies fit this definition.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company has reviewed issued accounting pronouncements and plans to adopt those that are applicable to it. The Company does not expect the adoption of any other pronouncements to have an impact on its results of operations or financial position. 

Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

A smaller reporting company is not required to provide the information required by this Item.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

 

Board of Directors and Stockholders

General Sales and Leasing, Inc.

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of General Sales and Leasing, Inc. as of August 31, 2013 and 2012 and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ deficit, and cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the entity’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

 

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provide 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 the Company as of August 31, 2013 and 2012 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years ended August 31, 2013 and 2012 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the entity will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, the entity has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a net capital deficiency that raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

 

NOTE 1           ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

(A) Nature of Business

General Sales and Leasing, Inc. (formerly known as General Aircraft, Inc.) (the “Company”) was incorporated in Nevada on August 9, 2011 and is engaged in the periodic rental of small aircrafts for personal and business use, in the Southern Nevada market. The Company is not limited to this activity and may, by executive decision, expand or alter its business activity at some future point.

 

For a nominal fee, the Company has acquired a wholly owned subsidiary named Shift It Media Company (a Nevada corporation) as of February 12, 2013. Shift It Media Company had no assets or liabilities as of the purchase date and all subsequent activity through the date of these financial statements has been properly consolidated.

 

As of February 13, 2013 the board of directors has consented and the State of Nevada has certified an amendment to the articles of incorporation to enable the company to change its name to General Sales and Leasing, Inc. The ticker symbol for General Sales and Leasing, Inc. will remain GAIF.

 

Effective February 25, 2013, the board of directors approved a forward split whereby each holder of record will receive ten shares for every one share held no later than February 28, 2013.

 

(B) Basis of Presentation

These financial statements have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America and include the have been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial statements on a going concern basis, which assumes the realization of assets and the discharge of liabilities in the normal course of operations for the foreseeable future.

 

The Company has adopted an August 31 year end.

 

(C) Principles of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiary. Significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

 

(D) Use of Estimates

In preparing financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and expenses during the reported period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates. Changes in facts and circumstances may result in revised estimates, which are recorded in the period in which they become known.

 

(E) Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid temporary cash investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.  At August 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company had no cash equivalents.

 

(F) Overhaul Costs

Overhaul requirements established by the Federal Aviation Administration, aircraft airframes and engines must be overhauled within specific intervals. The value and usefulness of an aircraft can be heavily dependent on its stage of overhaul. For accounting purposes, airframe and aircraft engine overhauls encompass all inspections or replacements of major components, which the civil air regulations require at specific maximum periodic intervals to recertify that the frame or engine is completely airworthy. The Company reports its overhaul costs in accordance with ASC Topic 908-360-30-1(b). Overhaul costs are recorded utilizing the deferral method which requires the capitalization of costs when they are incurred. Under the deferral method, the actual cost of each overhaul is amortized to the next overhaul.

GENERAL SALES AND LEASING, INC.

(formerly known as General Aircraft, Inc.)

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

(G) Property and Equipment

Property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Depreciation and amortization are calculated using the straight-line method and with useful lives used in computing depreciation. When property and equipment are retired or otherwise disposed of, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the respective accounts, and any gain or loss is included in operations. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to operations as incurred; additions, renewals and betterments are capitalized.

 

(H) Long-Lived Assets

The Company accounts for its long-lived assets in accordance with ASC Topic 360-10. ASC Topic 360-10 requires that long-lived assets be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the historical cost carrying value of an asset may no longer be appropriate. The Company assesses recoverability of the carrying value of an asset by estimating the future net cash flows expected to result from the asset, including eventual disposition. If the future net cash flows are less than the carrying value of the asset, an impairment loss is recorded equal to the difference between the asset's carrying value and fair value or disposable value.

 

(I) Financial Instruments

Financial instruments consist of cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and notes payable. Recorded values of cash, receivables, payables and accrued liabilities approximate fair values due to the short maturities of such instruments. Recorded values for notes payable and related liabilities approximate fair values, since their stated or imputed interest rates are commensurate with prevailing market rates for similar obligations.

 

(J) Loss Per Share

The Company reports earnings (loss) per share in accordance with ASC Topic 260-10. Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares available. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed similar to basic earnings (loss) per share except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential common shares had been issued and if the additional common shares were dilutive. As of August 31, 2013, there were no potential common shares underlying warrants or options.

 

(K) Revenue Recognition

Revenue is recognized in accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) No. 101, Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements, as revised by SAB No. 104. As such, the Company recognizes revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, title transfer has occurred, the price is fixed or readily determinable and collectability is probable. Sales are recorded net of sales discounts.

 

Revenues, which do not require production, modification or customization and do not have multiple elements, are recognized when (i) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (ii) service has occurred; (iii) the Company's fee is fixed and determinable; and (iv) collectability is probable.

 

The revenues of the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary are derived from online advertising sales. The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with Accounting Standard Codification (ASC) 605-10 (previously Securities and Exchange Commission Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 104, Revenue Recognition). Revenue is recognized only when the price is fixed or determinable, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the service is performed and collectability of the resulting receivable is reasonably assured.

 

(L) Income Taxes

Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method in accordance with ASC Topic 740-10. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and operating loss carryforwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. When it is considered to be more likely than not that a deferred tax asset will not be realized, a valuation allowance is provided for the excess.

 

(M) Recent Accounting Pronouncements

We do not believe there are any recently issued accounting standards that have not yet been adopted that will have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.

NOTE 2 - GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has incurred a net loss of $317,080 for the period of August 9, 2011 (inception) to August 31, 2013, and it is expected that it will continue to have negative cash flows as the business plan is implemented.

 

These conditions give rise to doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These financial statements do not include adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of reported asset amounts or the amount and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. The Company’s continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to obtain additional financing or sale of its common stock as may be required and ultimately to attain profitability.

 

NOTE 3 - FIXED ASSETS

 

On August 11, 2011, the Company entered into an Aircraft Purchase/Sales Agreement with an unrelated and unaffiliated third party for the acquisition of a 2002 Robinson R44 Raven II helicopter for the purchase price of $212,500. Pursuant to paragraph 7 of the agreement, the Seller warrants that the Aircraft is in airworthy condition and has a currently effective Standard Category airworthiness certificate issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”) and that all Airworthiness Directives have been complied with. In September 2011, the Company engaged the services of an independent third party to perform the FAA required annual inspection without incident. The first mandatory FAA overhaul is required at 2,000 hobbs hours of operation has occurred in April 2013, the required overhaul is anticipated to take at least five months and keep the helicopter inoperable until December 2013. When completed the overhaul, which is anticipated to cost between $200,000 and $220,000 will increase the depreciable value of the asset and its hourly rental rate as well. The aircraft was placed in service on October 1, 2011 and is estimated to have a useful life of approximately 10 years. As of August 31, 2013, and 2012, the Company recorded depreciation expense of $21,252 and $19,481, respectively.

NOTE 8   SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

As of August 31, 2013 the sole revenue earning asset of the parent company, General Sales and Leasing, Inc. remains out of operation for a mandatory overhaul which the Company anticipates will be completed early in December 2013 and cost between $200,000 and $220,000. This overhaul will increase the value of the asset as well as increase its hourly revenue earning rate. Thus, in months subsequent to April 2013 (the beginning of the overhaul) through the time the asset is returned to operations the parent company will have no revenue earning capability from its sole asset.

 

The Company does not anticipate earning any additional revenue from its current lease agreement with Elite Aviation VGT, LLC, and will be negotiating a new lease agreement once the helicopter returns to operating capability. The new contract anticipates an hourly rate of $185-$200 with a monthly minimum of 40 hours.

 

On October 4, 2013 the Company withdrew $160,000 from its line of credit in order to make the first payment on the aircraft overhaul. The total amount of the overhaul was billed to the Company during fiscal year end 2013 and is included in accounts payable.

 

In accordance with ASC 855, management evaluated all activity of the Company through the issue date of the financial statements and concluded that no other subsequent events have occurred that would require recognition or disclosure in the financial statements.

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

 

None.

 

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures

 

As required by Rule 13a-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, we have carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this annual report, being August 31, 2013. This evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer.

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our company’s reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Based upon that evaluation, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were ineffective as of the end of the period covered by this annual report.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934). Management has assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of August 31, 2013 based on criteria established in Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. As a result of this assessment, management concluded that, as of August 31, 2013, our internal control over financial reporting was not effective. Our management identified the following material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting, which are indicative of many small companies with small staff: (i) inadequate segregation of duties and effective risk assessment; and (ii) insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of both US GAAP and SEC guidelines.

 

We plan to take steps to enhance and improve the design of our internal control over financial reporting. During the period covered by this annual report on Form 10-K, we have not been able to remediate the material weaknesses identified above. To remediate such weaknesses, we hope to implement the following changes during our fiscal year ending August 31, 2013: (i) appoint additional qualified personnel to address inadequate segregation of duties and ineffective risk management; and (ii) adopt sufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting. The remediation efforts set out in (i) and (ii) are largely dependent upon our securing additional financing to cover the costs of implementing the changes required. If we are unsuccessful in securing such funds, remediation efforts may be adversely affected in a material manner.

 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to an exemption for non-accelerated filers set forth in Section 989G of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

The entire Board of Directors performs the functions of an audit committee, but no written charter governs the actions of the Board when performing the functions of what would generally be performed by an audit committee. The Board approves the selection of our independent accountants and meets and interacts with the independent accountants to discuss issues related to financial reporting. In addition, the Board reviews the scope and results of the audit with the independent accountants, reviews with management and the independent accountants our annual operating results, considers the adequacy of our internal accounting procedures and considers other auditing and accounting matters including fees to be paid to the independent auditor and the performance of the independent auditor. Our Board of Directors, which performs the functions of an audit committee, does not have a member who would qualify as an “audit committee financial expert” within the definition of Item 407(d)(5)(ii) of Regulation S-K. We believe that, at our current size and stage of development, the addition of a special audit committee financial expert to the Board is not necessary.

 

Nomination Committee

 

Our Board of Directors does not maintain a nominating committee. As a result, no written charter governs the director nomination process. Our size and the size of our Board, at this time, do not require a separate nominating committee.

 

When evaluating director nominees, our directors consider the following factors:

 

- The appropriate size of our Board of Directors;
- Our needs with respect to the particular talents and experience of our directors;
- The knowledge, skills and experience of nominees, including experience in finance, administration or public service, in light of prevailing business conditions and the knowledge, skills and experience already possessed by other members of the Board;
- Experience in political affairs;
- Experience with accounting rules and practices; and
- The desire to balance the benefit of continuity with the periodic injection of the fresh perspective provided by new Board members.

 

Our goal is to assemble a Board that brings together a variety of perspectives and skills derived from high quality business and professional experience. In doing so, the Board will also consider candidates with appropriate non-business backgrounds.

 

Other than the foregoing, there are no stated minimum criteria for director nominees, although the Board may also consider such other factors as it may deem are in our best interests as well as our stockholders. In addition, the Board identifies nominees by first evaluating the current members of the Board willing to continue in service. Current members of the Board with skills and experience that are relevant to our business and who are willing to continue in service are considered for re-nomination. If any member of the Board does not wish to continue in service or if the Board decides not to re-nominate a member for re-election, the Board then identifies the desired skills and experience of a new nominee in light of the criteria above. Current members of the Board are polled for suggestions as to individuals meeting the criteria described above. The Board may also engage in research to identify qualified individuals. To date, we have not engaged third parties to identify or evaluate or assist in identifying potential nominees, although we reserve the right in the future to retain a third party search firm, if necessary. The Board does not typically consider shareholder nominees because it believes that its current nomination process is sufficient to identify directors who serve our best interests.

 

Code of Ethics

 

As of August 31, 2013, we had not adopted a Code of Ethics for Financial Executives, which would include our principal executive officer, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer or controller, or persons performing similar functions.

Item 11. Executive Compensation

 

Compensation Discussion and Analysis

 

The Company presently not does have employment agreements with its executive officer and it has not established a system of executive compensation or any fixed policies regarding compensation of executive officers.  Our sole officer, Ari Nagler, is currently paid some cash compensation for his services. As our business and operations expand and mature, we expect to develop a formal system of compensation designed to attract, retain and motivate talented executives.
