ITEM 1.  BUSINESS


Business Development


Our Company was organized pursuant to the laws of the State of Utah on March 3, 1938, under the name “Red Hills Mining Company,” with an authorized capital of $20,000 divided into 2,000,000 shares of common stock of a par value of $0.01 per share. Our Company was formed for the primary purpose of conducting the business of mining in all of its branches.


On February 5, 1953, we changed our name to “Allied Oil and Minerals Company,” with our primary purpose continuing to be mining.


On January 8, 1971, we changed our name to “Community Equities Corporation,” we increased our authorized capital from $20,000 to $150,000, comprised of 15,000,000 at $.01 and our purpose also changed to the business of real estate development. We discontinued the real estate development operations in 1990.


Effective March 26, 1996, the corporate charter was reinstated, and we changed our corporate name to “Atlantica, Inc.”


On March 13, 1998, we increased our authorized capital from 15,000,000 shares of $.01 par value to 25,000,000 shares of $0.0001 par value common stock; and we authorized a reverse split of one share for every 20 shares. We also authorized the issuance of 24,000,000 shares to Gregory Aurre, President and a director, for services rendered and expenses paid. The Board also issued 25,000 shares each to Amerika Aurre, Vice President and a director and Gregory Aurre III, Secretary and a director, for services rendered. We also adopted new Bylaws.


On October 30, 2002, the Board of Directors resolved to appoint new officers and directors since Gregory Aurre II, Gregory Aurre III and Amerika Aurre all resigned, in seriatim, from any and all capacity as officers and directors. Thomas J. Howells was appointed as President and director, Terry Jenson as Vice President and director and Travis T. Jenson as Secretary and director.


On November 12, 2002, the 23,908,000 shares held by Gregory Aurre II, were foreclosed on to satisfy debt in the amount of $80,000, owed to Duane S. Jenson. Mr. Jenson had personally loaned Mr. Aurre the $80,000 which was secured solely by Mr. Aurre’s shares of the Company. Subsequent to foreclosing on the shares of Mr. Aurre’s that were held by Mr. Jenson as security for the loan, Mr. Jenson elected to gift a portion of those shares to his son, Travis T. Jenson, as well as to a business associate, Thomas J. Howells, and a long-time friend and legal counsel, Leonard W. Burningham, Esq.


On November 15, 2002, we were reinstated with the State of Utah.


On November 30, 2004 Thomas J. Howells resigned as President and a director and Travis T. Jenson resigned as Secretary and a director.  Shelley Goff and Duane S. Jenson were appointed as Secretary and President, respectively.  Mr. Jenson and Ms. Goff were also elected as directors.

 

A copy of our Bylaws was attached to our Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2001, and is incorporated herein by reference. See Part IV, Item 15.


A copy of our Articles of Incorporation, as amended, was attached to our initial Registration Statement on Form 10-SB and is incorporated herein by reference. See Part IV, Item 15.


On December 27, 2006 we filed a definitive Information Statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission regarding a one-for-10 (1:10) pro rata reverse split of our outstanding common stock (Proposal 1) and the adoption of Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation (Proposal 2), to be voted upon at a special meeting of our shareholders (the “Meeting”).  The Information Statement that was mailed to our stockholders was accompanied by a Notice of Special Meeting of Shareholders, both of which were mailed to our shareholders on or about January 5, 2007.  Please see the Exhibit Index, Part IV, Item 15, for a copy of the Definitive Information Statement, as filed on December 27, 2006, which is incorporated herein by reference.

These resolutions were unanimously adopted by our Board of Directors. Duane S. Jenson, and his son, Travis T. Jenson, who, at that time, collectively, beneficially owned 16,000,683 shares of our common stock or approximately 65.1% of our outstanding voting securities, agreed to and intended to vote in favor of the Proposals at the Meeting. No other votes were required or necessary to adopt these Proposals.


The Meeting was held at 4685 South Highland Drive, #202, Salt Lake City, Utah, 84117, on January 26, 2007, at 11:00 o’clock a.m., Mountain Standard Time.  Present at the Meeting was Leonard W. Burningham, Esq., former counsel for the Company, Duane S. Jenson and Travis T. Jenson, representing 19,908,683 shares, or approximately 81%, of the 24,581,458 shares of our outstanding voting securities at that time.


All shares represented at the Meeting voted in favor of both Proposals.  The reverse split subsequently became effective on February 15, 2007.  That stock split is reflected herein on a retroactive basis.


On June 29, 2007, pursuant to a Stock Purchase Agreement among Mirabella Holdings, LLC, (the “Purchaser”), Duane S. Jenson, Travis T. Jenson, Thomas J. Howells, Leonard W. Burningham (collectively with Duane S. Jenson, Travis T. Jenson and Thomas J. Howells, the “Sellers”), and Leonard W. Burningham, as the representative of the Sellers, the Purchaser acquired from the Sellers a total of 1,966,872 shares of the Company’s common stock (the “Acquisition”), representing 80% of the Company’s currently outstanding shares, for a purchase price of $525,000 in cash.  Upon the closing of the Acquisition, Duane S. Jenson and Terry Jenson resigned as directors and executive officers, Shelley Goff resigned as a director, retained her office as the Company’s Secretary and was appointed the Company’s Chief Financial Officer; and Alan D. Gordon was appointed as the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer.  In connection with the Acquisition and effective July 16, 2007, Alan D. Gordon, Frederick G. Pierce, II and Richard F. Strup were elected as directors, and Duane S. Jenson, Terry Jenson and Shelley Goff resigned as director.  


In addition, pursuant to a Share Escrow and Reset Agreement (the “Reset Agreement”) entered into among the Purchaser, the Sellers’ Representative, the Sellers, the Company and the escrow agent thereunder contemporaneously with the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Sellers placed in escrow an additional 423,928 shares of the Company’s Common Stock then owned by them (the “Escrow Shares”), which at the time represented all but 70 of the remaining shares of the Company’s Common Stock owned by the Sellers.  Pursuant to the Reset Agreement, if, during the five-year period following June 29, 2007 (the “Acquisition Period”), the Company acquired one or more companies having a combined enterprise value of at least $10 million (a “Threshold Acquisition”), the Escrow Shares would reset, at that time, to a number of newly-issued shares of the Company’s Common Stock that would represent (collectively with the 70 shares previously retained by the Sellers) 5% of the Company’s then fully-diluted Common Stock. If a Threshold Acquisition did not occur during the Acquisition Period, all of the Escrow Shares would be released to the Sellers without any reissuance or adjustment in their amount.


A Threshold Acquisition by the Company did not occur during the Acquisition Period and, as a result, the Company subsequently received the required notice from the Sellers’ Representative requesting the release of the Escrow Shares to the Sellers in accordance with the terms of the Reset Agreement.  Accordingly, on November 12, 2012, all of the Escrow Shares were released to the Sellers without any reissuance or adjustment in their amount.  


See the 8-K Current Report dated June 29, 2007 and filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 3, 2007, and see the Schedule 14F-1 Information Statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 3, 2007 and mailed to our stockholders on or about July 5, 2007.  See Part IV, Item 15 of this Report.


Description of Business


We are currently seeking potential assets, property or businesses to acquire, in a business combination, by reorganization, merger or acquisition.  We have had no material business operations since March 7, 1997.  Our plan of operation for the next 12 months is to: (i) consider guidelines of industries in which we may have an interest; (ii) adopt a business plan regarding engaging in the business of any selected industry; and (iii) to commence operations through funding and/or the acquisition or business combination with a “going concern” engaged in any industry selected.  We are unable to predict the time as to when and if we may actually participate in any specific business endeavor, and we will be unable to do so until we determine any particular industry in which we may conduct business operations.



4




We are not currently engaged in any substantive business activity except the search for potential assets, property or businesses to acquire, and we have no current plans to engage in any other activity in the foreseeable future unless and until we complete any such acquisition.  In our present form, we are deemed to be a “shell company” seeking to acquire or merge with a business or company.  We do not intend to restrict our search for business opportunities to any particular business or industry, and the areas in which we will seek out business opportunities may include all lawful businesses.  We recognize that the number of suitable potential business ventures that may be available to us will be extremely limited, and may be restricted to businesses or entities that desire to become a publicly-held company while avoiding what many may deem to be the adverse factors related to an initial public offering (“IPO”) as a method of “going public.”  The most prevalent of these factors include the substantial time requirements, legal and accounting costs, the inability to obtain an underwriter who is willing to publicly offer and sell securities on behalf of the particular entity, the lack of or the inability to obtain the required financial statements for such an undertaking, state limitations on the amount of dilution to public investors in comparison to the stockholders of any such entity, along with other conditions or requirements imposed by various federal and state securities laws, rules and regulations and federal and state agencies that implement them.


Amendments to SEC Form 8-K regarding shell companies and transactions with shell companies require the filing of all information about an acquired company that would have been required to have been filed had any such company filed a Form 10 Registration Statement with the SEC, along with required audited, interim and proforma financial statements, within four business days of the closing of any such transaction (Item 5.01(a)(8) of Form 8-K); and the recent amendments to Rule 144  (“Rule 144”) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) adopted by the SEC that were effective on February 15, 2008, that limit the resale of most securities of shell companies until 12 months after the filing of such information (the “Form 10 Information”), may eliminate many of the perceived advantages of going public transactions with shell companies.  These types of transactions are customarily referred to as “reverse” reorganizations or mergers in which the acquired company’s stockholders become the controlling stockholders in the acquiring company and the acquiring company becomes the successor to the business operations of the acquired company.  Regulations governing shell companies also deny the use of SEC Form S-8 for the registration of securities and limit the use of SEC Form S-8 to a reorganized shell company until the expiration of 60 days from when any such entity is no longer considered to be a shell company.  This prohibition could further restrict opportunities for us to acquire companies that may already have stock option plans in place that cover numerous employees.  In such instances, there may be no exemption from registration for the issuance of securities in any business combination to these employees, thereby necessitating the filing of a registration statement with the SEC to complete any such reorganization, and incurring the time and expenses that are normally avoided by reverse reorganizations or mergers.  


Recent amendments to Rule 144, adopted by the SEC and effective on February 15, 2008, codify the SEC’s prior position limiting the tradeability of certain securities of shell companies, including those issued by us in any business combination, and further limit the tradeability of additional securities of shell companies; these proposals will further restrict the availability of opportunities for us to acquire any business or enterprise that desires to utilize us as a means of going public.  See the heading “Rule 144” in Part II, Item 5, for a discussion of the general requirements of Rule 144 and the limitations of Rule 144 with respect to shell companies.


Any of these types of business combination transactions, regardless of the particular prospect, would require us to issue a substantial number of shares of our common stock that could amount to as much as 95% or more of our outstanding voting securities; accordingly, investments in the private enterprise, if available, would be much more favorable than any investment in us.


Management intends to consider a number of factors prior to making any decision to participate in any specific business endeavor, none of which may be determinative or provide any assurance of success.  These may include, but will not be limited to, as applicable, an analysis of the quality of the particular business or entity’s management and personnel; the anticipated acceptability of any new products or marketing concepts that any such business or company may have; the merits of any such business’s or company’s technology or intellectual property; the present financial condition, projected growth potential and available technical, financial and managerial resources; working capital, history of operations and future prospects; the nature of present and expected competition; the quality and experience of any such business’s or company’s management services and the depth of management; the business’ or the company’s potential for further research, development or exploration; risk factors specifically related to the business’s or company’s operations; the potential for growth, expansion and profit; the perceived public recognition



5



or acceptance of products, or services offered and trademarks and name identification; and numerous other factors that are difficult, if not impossible, to properly or accurately quantify or analyze, let alone describe or identify, without referring to specific objective criteria of an identified business or company.


Regardless, the results of operations of any specific entity may not necessarily be indicative of what may occur in the future, by reason of changing market strategies, plant or product expansion, changes in product emphasis, future management personnel and changes in innumerable other factors.  Further, in the case of a new business venture or one that is in a research and development mode, the risks will be substantial, and there will be no objective criteria to examine the effectiveness or the abilities of its management or its business objectives.  Also, a firm market for its products or services may yet need to be established, and with no past track record, the profitability of any such business will be unproven and cannot be predicted with any certainty.


Our management will attempt to meet personally with management and key personnel of any entity providing a potential business opportunity for us, visit and inspect material facilities, obtain independent analysis or verification of information provided and gathered, check references of material personnel and conduct other reasonably prudent measures calculated to ensure a reasonably thorough review of any particular business opportunity; however, due to time constraints of management and limited capital, these activities may be limited.  


We are unable to predict the time as to when and if we may actually participate in any specific business endeavor or if at all.  We anticipate that proposed business ventures will be made available to us through personal contacts of directors, executive officers and principal stockholders, professional advisors, broker dealers in securities, venture capital personnel and others who may present unsolicited proposals.  In certain cases, we may agree to pay a finder’s fee or to otherwise compensate the persons who submit a potential business endeavor in which we eventually participate. Such persons may include our directors, executive officers and beneficial owners of our securities or their affiliates.  In this regard, s ee the description of our management services agreement with Richland, Gordon & Company contained in Part III, Item 13 of this Report, and a copy of that agreement included in Part IV, Item 15 of this Report, with respect to, among other things, certain cash fees that may be payable by us to Richland, Gordon in connection with future financings and business combinations by us.  In this event, such fees may become a factor in negotiations regarding any potential venture and, accordingly, may present a conflict of interest for such individuals.  


Although we currently have no plans to do so, depending on the nature and extent of services rendered, we may compensate members of our management in the future for services that they may perform for us.  Because we currently have extremely limited resources, and we are unlikely to have any significant resources until we have determined a business or enterprise to engage in or have completed a business combination, management expects that any such compensation would take the form of an issuance of shares of our common stock to these persons; this would have the effect of further diluting the holdings of our other stockholders.  There are presently no preliminary agreements or understandings between us and members of our management respecting such compensation.  Any shares issued to members of our management would be required to be resold under an effective registration statement filed with the SEC or could not be publicly sold until 12 months after we file the Form 10 information about the business combination with the SEC as now required by SEC Form 8-K.  These provisions could further inhibit our ability to complete any business combination where finders or others who may be subject to these resale limitations refuse to provide us with any introductions or to close any such transactions unless they are paid requested fees in cash rather than our shares or unless we agree to file a registration statement with the SEC that includes any shares that are to be issued to them, at no cost to them.  These expenses could limit potential acquisition candidates, especially those in need of cash resources, and could affect the number of shares that our stockholders retain following any such transaction, by reason of the increased expense.


Substantial fees are also often paid in connection with the completion of all types of business combinations, ranging from a small amount to as much as $400,000 or more. These fees are usually divided among promoters or founders or finders, after deduction of legal, accounting and other related expenses, and it is not unusual for a portion of these fees to be paid to members of management or to principal stockholders as consideration for their agreement to retire a portion of their shares of common stock or as consideration to them to provide an indemnification for all of our prior liabilities.  Members of management may also actively negotiate or otherwise consent to the purchase of all or any portion of their shares of common stock as a condition to, or in connection with, a proposed business combination.  It is not anticipated that any such opportunity will be afforded to other stockholders or that such other stockholders will be afforded the opportunity to approve or consent to any particular stock buy-out transaction.  In the event that any such fees are paid or shares are purchased, these requirements may become a factor in



6



negotiations regarding any business combination with us and, accordingly, may also present a conflict of interest for such individuals.  Any of these types of fees that are paid in shares of our common stock will also be subject to the resale limitations embodied in the recent amendments to Rule 144 that prohibit, among other requirements, the public resale of these shares until 12 months after the filing of the Form 10 information with the SEC.  We have no present arrangements or understandings respecting any of these types of fees or opportunities, other than pursuant to our management services agreement with Richland, Gordon & Company.   See the description of our management services agreement with Richland, Gordon & Company contained in Part III, Item 13 of this Report, and a copy of that agreement included in Part IV, Item 15 of this Report, with respect to, among other things, certain cash fees that may be payable by us to Richland, Gordon in connection with future financings and business combinations by us.  


Competitive Business Conditions and Our Competitive Position in the Industry and Methods of Competition


Management believes that there are literally thousands of shell companies engaged in endeavors similar to those engaged in by us; many of these companies have substantial current assets and cash reserves.  Competitors also include thousands of other publicly-held companies whose business operations have proven unsuccessful, and whose only viable business opportunity is that of providing a publicly-held vehicle through which a private entity may have access to the public capital markets via a reverse reorganization or merger.  There is no reasonable way to predict our competitive position or that of any other entity in these endeavors; however, we, have limited assets and no cash reserves, will no doubt be at a competitive disadvantage in competing with shell companies that have significant cash resources and have recent operating histories when compared with our lack of any substantive operations for many years.


Effect of Existing or Probable Governmental Regulations on our Business


We are subject to the following regulations of the SEC and applicable securities laws, rules and regulations:


Smaller Reporting Company


We are subject to the reporting requirements of Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and subject to the disclosure requirements of Regulation S-K of the SEC, as a “smaller reporting company.”  That designation will relieve us of some of the informational requirements of Regulation S-K applicable to larger companies.


Sarbanes/Oxley Act


We are also subject to the Sarbanes/Oxley Act of 2002.  The Sarbanes/Oxley Act created a strong and independent accounting oversight board to oversee the conduct of auditors of public companies and strengthens auditor independence.  It also requires steps to enhance the direct responsibility of senior members of management for financial reporting and for the quality of financial disclosures made by public companies; establishes clear statutory rules to limit, and to expose to public view, possible conflicts of interest affecting securities analysts; creates guidelines for audit committee members’ appointment, compensation and oversight of the work of public companies’ auditors; management's assessment of our internal controls; auditor attestation to management’s conclusions about internal controls; prohibits certain insider trading during pension fund blackout periods; requires companies and auditors to evaluate internal controls and procedures; and establishes a federal crime of securities fraud, among other provisions. Compliance with the requirements of the Sarbanes/Oxley Act has substantially increased our legal and accounting costs.


Exchange Act Reporting Requirements


Section 14(a) of the Exchange Act requires all companies with securities registered pursuant to Section 12(g) of the Exchange Act to comply with the rules and regulations of the SEC regarding proxy solicitations, as outlined in Regulation 14A. Matters submitted to stockholders at special or annual meetings thereof or pursuant to a written consent will require us to provide our stockholders with the information outlined in Schedules 14A or 14C of Regulation 14; preliminary copies of this information must be submitted to the SEC at least 10 days prior to the date that definitive copies of this information are forwarded to our stockholders.




7



We are also required to file Annual Reports on SEC Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on SEC Form 10-Q with the SEC on a regular basis, and will be required to timely disclose certain material events (e.g., changes in corporate control; acquisitions or dispositions of a significant amount of assets other than in the ordinary course of business; and bankruptcy) in a Current Report on SEC Form 8-K.


Emerging Growth Company


We are an “emerging growth company” as defined in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012, or “JOBS Act.”  As long as we remain an “emerging growth company,” we may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not an “emerging growth company,” like those applicable to a “smaller reporting company,” including, but not limited to, a scaled down description of our business in Securities and Exchange Commission filings; no requirements to include risk factors in Exchange Act filings; no requirement to include certain selected financial data and supplementary financial information in Securities and Exchange Commission filings; not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act; reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in our periodic reports and proxy statements that we file under the Exchange Act; no requirement for Sarbanes-Oxley Act Section 404(b) auditor attestations of internal control over financial reporting; and exemptions from the requirements of holding an annual nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and seeking nonbinding stockholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved.  We are also only required to file audited financial statements for the previous two fiscal years when filing registration statements, together with reviewed financial statements of any applicable subsequent quarter.


We may take advantage of these reporting exemptions until we are no longer an “emerging growth company.”  We can remain an “emerging growth company” for up to five years.  We would cease to be an “emerging growth company” prior to such time if we have total annual gross revenues of $1 billion or more and when we become a “larger accelerated filer,” have a public float of $700 million or more or we issue more than $1 billion of non-convertible debt over a three-year period.


Under the JOBS Act, emerging growth companies can also delay adopting new or revised accounting standards until such time as those standards apply to private companies.  We have irrevocably elected not to avail ourselves of this exemption from new or revised accounting standards and, therefore, will be subject to the same new or revised accounting standards as other public companies that are not emerging growth companies.


Number of Total Employees and Number of Full Time Employees


We have no employees.


ITEM 1A.  RISK FACTORS


As a smaller reporting company, we are not required to provide risk factors.


ITEM 2:  PROPERTIES


Our Company has no assets, property or business; its principal executive office address and telephone number are the office address and telephone number of Alan D. Gordon, who is our President and a director and an affiliate of Mirabella Holdings, LLC (our current majority stockholder), which are provided at no cost to the Company.  See Part I, Item 1. Because the Company has had no business, its activities have been limited to keeping itself in good standing in the State of Utah.  These activities have consumed an insignificant amount of management’s time; accordingly, the costs to Mr. Gordon of providing the use of his office and telephone have been minimal.


ITEM 3:  LEGAL PROCEEDINGS


We are not a party to any pending legal proceeding and, to the knowledge of our management; no federal, state or local governmental agency is presently contemplating any proceeding against us.  No director, executive officer or affiliate of ours or owner of record or beneficially of more than 5% of our common stock is a party adverse to us or has a material interest adverse to us in any proceeding.

ITEM 4:  MINE SAFETY DISCLOSURES


None; not applicable.


PART II


ITEM 5:  MARKET FOR REGISTRANT’S COMMON EQUITY, RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS AND ISSUER PURCHASES OF EQUITY SECURITIES


Market Information


There is no “established trading market” for our shares of common stock. Commencing on or about January 5, 2006, our shares of common stock were listed on the OTC Bulletin Board of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) under the symbol “AIAN”; we received a new symbol of “ATTC” in conjunction with the reverse split as discussed under the caption “Business Development” herein.  We applied for a symbol change and were granted on October 14, 2013, the new symbol “ALDA.”  However, management does not expect any established trading market to develop in our shares of common stock unless and until we have material operations.  In any event, no assurance can be given that any market for our common stock will develop or be maintained. If a public market ever develops in the future, the sale of shares of our common stock that are deemed to be “restricted securities” pursuant to Rule 144 by members of management or others may have a substantial adverse impact on any such market.


Set forth below are the high and low closing bid prices for our common stock for each quarter of 2012 and 2013.  These bid prices were obtained from OTC Markets Group, Inc. formerly known as the “Pink Sheets, LLC.” All prices listed herein reflect inter-dealer prices, without retail mark-up, mark-down or commissions and may not represent actual transactions.

Shell Companies


The following is an excerpt from Rule 144(i) regarding resales of securities of shell companies:


“(i)

Unavailability to securities of issuers with no or nominal operations and no or nominal non-cash assets.


(1)

This section is not available for the resale of securities initially issued by an issuer defined below:


(i)

An issuer, other than a business combination related shell company, as defined in §230.405, or an asset-backed issuer, as defined in Item 1101(b) of Regulation AB (§229.1101(b) of this chapter), that has:


(A)

No or nominal operations; and


(B)

Either:


(1)

No or nominal assets;


(2)

Assets consisting solely of cash and cash equivalents; or


(3)

Assets consisting of any amount of cash and cash equivalents and nominal other assets; or



10




(ii)

An issuer that has been at any time previously an issuer described in paragraph (i)(1)(i).


(2)

Notwithstanding paragraph (i)(1), if the issuer of the securities previously had been an issuer described in paragraph (i)(1)(i) but has ceased to be an issuer described in paragraph (i)(1)(i); is subject to the reporting requirements of section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act; has filed all reports and other materials required to be filed by section 13 or 15(d) of the Exchange Act, as applicable, during the preceding 12 months (or for such shorter period that the issuer was required to file such reports and materials), other than Form 8-K reports (§249.308 of this chapter); and has filed current “Form 10 information” with the SEC reflecting its status as an entity that is no longer an issuer described in paragraph (i)(1)(i), then those securities may be sold subject to the requirements of this section after 12 months have elapsed from the date that the issuer filed “Form 10 information” with the SEC.


(3)

The term “Form 10 information” means the information that is required by Form 10 or Form 20-F (§249.220f of this chapter), as applicable to the issuer of the securities, to register under the Exchange Act each class of securities being sold under this rule.  The issuer may provide the “Form 10 information” in any filing of the issuer with the SEC.  The “Form 10 information” is deemed filed when the initial filing is made with the SEC.”


Securities of a shell company cannot be publicly sold under Rule 144 in the absence of compliance with this subparagraph.


Section 4(1) of the Securities Act


Since we are a shell company as defined in subparagraph (i) of Rule 144, our shares of common stock that were issued while or after we became a shell company cannot be publicly resold under Rule 144 until we comply with the requirements outlined above under the heading “Shell Companies.”  Until those requirements have been satisfied, any resales of our shares of common stock must be made in compliance with the provisions of the exemption from registration under the Securities Act provided in Section 4(1) thereof, applicable to persons other than “an issuer, underwriter or a dealer.”  That will require that such shares of common stock be sold in “routine trading transactions,” which would include compliance with substantially all of the requirements of Rule 144, including the availability of “current public information” about us as required by subparagraph (c) (1) or (c)(2) of Rule 144, regardless of the Rule’s availability; and such resales may be limited to our non-affiliates.  It has been the position of the SEC that the Section 4(1) exemption is not available for the resale of any securities of an issuer that is or was a shell company, by directors, executive officers, promoters or founders or their transferees.  See NASD Regulation, Inc., CCH Federal Securities Law Reporter, 1990-2000 Decisions, Paragraph No. 77,681, the so-called “Worm-Wulff Letter.”  The current position of the SEC that is contained in Securities Act Release No. 33-8899, effective February 15, 2008, and that codified the position of the SEC set forth in the Worm-Wulff Letter and revised Rule 144 as outlined above, is that Rule 144 now defines what resales can be made under Section 4(1) of the Securities Act, and with limited exceptions, which are set forth in footnote 172 of that Release, shares of shell companies must be sold in compliance with Rule 144(i) that is quoted above.


Holders


We currently have 661 shareholders, not including an indeterminate number who may hold shares in “street name.”


Dividends


We have not declared any cash dividends with respect to our common stock, and do not intend to declare dividends in the foreseeable future.  Our future dividend policy cannot be ascertained with any certainty, and if and until we determine to engage in any business or we complete any acquisition, reorganization or merger, no such policy will be formulated.  There are currently no material restrictions limiting, or that are likely to limit, our ability to pay dividends on our securities.

ITEM 6:  SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA


Not required for smaller reporting companies.


ITEM 7:  MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATION


Forward-looking Statements


Statements made in this Annual Report, which are not purely historical, are forward-looking statements with respect to the goals, plan objectives, intentions, expectations, financial condition, results of operations, future performance and our business, including, without limitation, (i) our ability to raise capital, and (ii) statements preceded by, followed by or that include the words “may,” “would,” “could,” “should,” “expects,” “projects,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “plans,” “intends,” “targets” or similar expressions.


Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, and actual results may differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements, depending upon a number of factors, many of which are beyond our control.  These factors include, but are not limited to, the following:  general economic or industry conditions; nationally and/or in the communities in which we may conduct business; changes in the interest rate environment; legislation or regulatory requirements; conditions of the securities markets; our ability to raise capital; changes in accounting principles; policies or guidelines; financial or political instability; acts of war or terrorism; and other economic, competitive, governmental, regulatory and technical factors affecting our current or potential business and related matters.


Accordingly, results actually achieved may differ materially from expected results in these statements.  Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made.  We do not undertake, and specifically



12



disclaim, any obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of such statements.


Plan of Operation


Our plan of operation for the next 12 months is to: (i) consider guidelines of industries in which we may have an interest; (ii) adopt a business plan regarding engaging in the business of any selected industry; and (iii) commence such operations through funding and/or the acquisition of a “going concern” engaged in any industry selected.


During the next 12 months, our only foreseeable cash requirements will relate to maintaining our good standing; the payment of our SEC reporting filing expenses, including associated legal and accounting fees; costs incident to reviewing or investigating any potential business venture; and maintaining our good standing as a corporation in our state of organization.  We anticipate that these funds will be provided to us in the form of loans from Mirabella Holdings, LLC (“Mirabella”), our majority shareholder, although Mirabella is under no obligation to provide any such loans in the future.  Currently, any such loans that may be provided to us from time to time by Mirabella are made pursuant to a demand promissory note that has been issued by us to Mirabella, which loans are unsecured, payable on demand and bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum, compounded quarterly.  See the description of that demand promissory note contained in Part III, Item 13 of this Report, and a copy of that note included in Part IV, Item 15 of this Report.


Liquidity and Capital Resources


We have no current cash resources.


Results of Operations


Year Ended December 31, 2013, Compared to Year Ended December 31, 2012


Other than maintaining its good corporate standing in the State of Utah, compromising and settling its debts and seeking the acquisition of assets, properties or businesses that may benefit the Company and its stockholders, the Company has had no material business operations in the two most recent calendar years.


At December 31, 2013, the Company had $5,000 in assets. See the Financial Statements and Supplementary Data, Item 8 of this Annual Report.


During the period ended December 31, 2013, the Company had a net loss of $210,668, resulting from operations, as compared to a net loss of $92,590 for the same period ended December 31, 2012. Cumulative income totaled $35,438 since our gain on extinguishment of debt.  Primarily all of these losses are the result of attorney’s fees, accounting fees and management fees.  See the Financial Statements and Supplementary Data, Item 8 of this Report.


During calendar 2013, expenses were paid by Mirabella, a majority stockholder of the Company, in the aggregate amount of $87,044, and during calendar 2012 expenses were also paid by Mirabella in the aggregate amount of $136,943. The aggregate amount of $303,383 outstanding as of December 31, 2013 on the loans provided to us by Mirabella, which includes the $1,275 of expenses paid by Mirabella during 2007 that were not converted into a capital contribution, is unsecured, bears interest at the rate of 10% per annum, compounded quarterly, and is due and payable to Mirabella on demand.   See the description of our demand promissory note issued to Mirabella contained in Part III, Item 13 of this Report, and a copy of that note included in Part IV, Item 15 of this Report.


While Mirabella currently pays our limited operating and other expenses on our behalf, Mirabella is not obligated to pay any of those expenses, and we can provide no assurance that Mirabella will continue to pay any of those expenses in the future.


Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements


We had no Off-Balance Sheet arrangements of any kind for the year ended December 31, 2013.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm



To the Board of Directors and Stockholders

Atlantica, Inc.

(A Development Stage Company)

Chicago, Illinois


We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Atlantica, Inc. as of December 31, 2013 and 2012, and the related statements of operations, stockholders' equity (deficit), and cash flows for the years then ended, and from inception of the development stage on January 1, 1997 through December 31, 2013.  These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.


We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the 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 audits 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 audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.


In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Atlantica, Inc. as of December 31, 2013 and 2012, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended, and from inception of the development stage on January 1, 1997 through December 31, 2013 in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.


The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  As disclosed in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Company does not generate significant revenue and has negative cash flow from operations.  This raises substantial doubt about the Company’s 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 in the outcome of this uncertainty.

ATLANTICA, INC.

 (A Development Stage Company)

Notes to Audited Financial Statements

December 31, 2013


NOTE 1 - SUMMARY OF SIGNFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

This summary of significant accounting policies of Atlantica, Inc. is presented to assist in understanding the Company’s financial statements. The financial statements and notes are representations of the Company’s management, which is 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 financial statements.

 

a. Organization and Business Activities

 

The financial statements presented are those of Atlantica, Inc. (the Company). The Company was incorporated in the State of Utah on March 3, 1938. The Company name at that time was Red Hills Mining Company. On February 5, 1953, the Company changed its name to Allied Oil and Minerals Company. On January 8, 1971, the Company changed its name to Community Equities Corporation. On March 26, 1996, the Company changed its name to Atlantica, Inc.

 

The Company had two subsidiaries; Keys Equities, Inc. (Keys), a Florida corporation incorporated on July 31, 1996, and Allied Equities, Inc. (Allied), a Florida corporation incorporated on July 15, 1996. On March 1, 1998, the Company transferred its right, title and interest in a mining claim in Utah to Allied. The mining claim had a book value of $-0-. On March 1, 1998, the Company distributed the shares of the two subsidiaries to its shareholders in a liquidating dividend.

 

The Company has not engaged in any business operations since 1990, and it was reclassified as a development stage company as of January 1, 1997. The Company’s only activity since that time has consisted of taking actions necessary to restore and preserve its good standing in the State of Utah. The Company presently has no assets. The Company intends to continue to seek out the acquisition of assets, property or a business that may be beneficial to the Company and its stockholders. In considering whether to complete any such acquisition, the Board of Directors will make the final determination and the approval of stockholders will not be sought unless required by applicable law, the articles of incorporation or bylaws of the Company or contract.

 

b. Accounting Method

 

The Company’s financial statements are prepared using the accrual method of accounting. The Company has elected a December 31 year-end.


Certain balances in prior year financial statements have been adjusted to conform to current year presentation.


c. Estimates

 

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

 

d. Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with original maturities at the date of purchase of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

NOTE 1 - SUMMARY OF SIGNFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)


e. Income Taxes

 

The Company utilizes an asset and liability approach for financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Deferred income taxes are provided for temporary differences in the bases of assets and liabilities as reported for financial statement and income tax purposes.

 

Due to the change in ownership provisions of the Tax Reform Act of 1986, net operating loss carry-forwards for Federal income tax reporting purposes are subject to annual limitations. Should a change in ownership occur, net operating loss carry-forwards may be limited as to use in the future.

 

Deferred income taxes are provided using the liability method whereby deferred tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences.  Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases.  Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of the changes in tax laws and rates of the date of enactment.


When tax returns are filed, it is highly certain that some positions taken would be sustained upon examination by the taxing authorities, while others are subject to uncertainty about the merits of the position taken or the amount of the position that would be ultimately sustained.  The benefit of a tax position is recognized in the financial statements in the period during which, based on all available evidence, management believes it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination, including the resolution of appeals or litigation processes, if any.  Tax positions taken are not offset or aggregated with other positions.  Tax positions that meet the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold are measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that is more than 50 percent likely of being realized upon settlement with the applicable taxing authority.  The portion of the benefits associated with tax positions taken that exceeds the amount measured as described above is reflected as a liability for unrecognized tax benefits in the accompanying balance sheet along with any associated interest and penalties that would be payable to the taxing authorities upon examination.


Interest and penalties associated with unrecognized tax benefits are classified as operating expenses in the statement of income.


f. Basic Income (Loss) Per Share

 

The computation of basic income (loss) per share of common stock is based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period.

NOTE 1 - SUMMARY OF SIGNFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES  (Continued)


g. Revenue Recognition Policy

 

The Company currently has no source of revenues. Revenue recognition policies will be determined when principal operations begin.

 

h. Recent Accounting Pronouncements


The Company has reviewed all other recently issued, but not yet adopted, accounting standards in order to determine their effects, if any, on its results of operation, financial position or cash flows.  Based on that review, the Company believes that none of these pronouncements will have a significant effect on its financial statements.


NOTE 2 - GOING CONCERN

 

The Company’s financial statements are prepared using accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America applicable to a going concern which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has not established revenues sufficient to cover its operation costs.  In addition, the Company has no assets, a working capital deficit and accumulated losses during the development stage.  This raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.  The Company is seeking the acquisition of, or merger with, an existing operating company.  


The Company is relying on its principal shareholder to pay all of our operating and other expenses until we can complete a reorganization or merger.  While the Company's principal stockholder currently pays the Company's limited operating and other expenses, on the Company's behalf, that principal stockholder is not obligated to pay any of those expenses and the Company can provide no assurance that such stockholder will continue to pay any of those expenses in the future.  This stockholder paid a total of $87,044 in expenses for the Company in the year ended December 31, 2013, increasing the aggregate amount of a demand note held by this stockholder to $303,383.


NOTE 3 - INCOME TAXES

 

Deferred taxes are provided using the asset and liability method whereby deferred tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences and operating loss and tax credit carryforwards and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences. Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

NOTE 3 - INCOME TAXES  (Continued)


A valuation allowance is provided when it is more likely than not that all or a portion of the deferred tax asset will not be realized.  The valuation allowance increased by $82,000 from $347,000 to $429,000 during the year ended December 31, 2013.


The income tax provision differs from the amount of income tax determined by applying the U.S. federal and state income tax rate of 39% to pretax income from continuing operations for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 due to the following:

At December 31, 2013, the Company had net operating loss carryforwards of $315,115 that may be offset against future taxable income from the year 2014 through 2033. No tax benefit has been reported in the December 31, 2013 financial statements since the potential tax benefit is offset by a valuation allowance of the same amount.

 

Due to the change in majority ownership that occurred under the Stock Purchase Agreement on June 29, 2007, described under “Note 5 – Change in Control of Issuer” below, net operating loss carryforwards for Federal income tax reporting purposes are subject to annual limitations under provisions of the Tax Reform Act of 1986.  The net operating loss carryforwards and the resulting deferred tax asset as of December 31, 2013 have been adjusted to reflect the limitations imposed.


The Company or one of its subsidiaries files income tax returns in the U.S. federal jurisdiction, and the state of Utah jurisdiction.  With few exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to U.S. federal, state and local, or non-U.S. income tax examinations by tax authorities for years before 2007.


The Company recognizes interest accrued related to unrecognized tax benefits in interest expense and penalties in operating expenses.  During the years ended December 31, 2013, and 2012, the Company recognized no interest and no penalties.  The Company had no payments of interest and penalties accrued at December 31, 2013 or 2012.


NOTE 4 - GAIN ON EXTINGUISHMENT OF DEBT

 

In 1990, the Company signed as a guarantor of a mortgage. The primary mortgager has defaulted on the loan so the Company recorded the liability on its books.

 

On February 18, 1999, the Company entered into negotiations with the City of Miami for a settlement agreement which would release the Company from the mortgage payable. Under the terms of the agreement, the City of Miami agreed to execute and deliver to the Company a release of lien. In return, a shareholder of the Company paid the City of Miami $10,010 and transferred to the City 25,000 shares of the Company’s common stock owned personally by the shareholder.

 

As a result of the settlement, the Company recorded a gain on the extinguishment of debt totaling $1,352,887 ($885,000 principal and $477,900 accrued interest minus $10,013 for cash and common stock paid) for the year ended December 31, 1999.  In addition, contributed capital of $10,013 was recorded which represented the cash paid by the shareholder to the City of Miami and the value of the 25,000 shares transferred.

NOTE 5 – CHANGE IN CONTROL OF ISSUER


Pursuant to a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Stock Purchase Agreement”) entered into on June 29, 2007, among Mirabella Holdings, LLC (the “Purchaser”), Duane S. Jenson, Travis T. Jenson, Thomas J. Howells, Leonard W. Burningham (collectively with Duane S. Jenson, Travis T. Jenson and Thomas J. Howells, the “Sellers”), and Leonard W. Burningham, as the representative of the Sellers (the “Sellers’ Representative”), the Purchaser acquired from the Sellers a total of 1,966,872 shares of the Company’s Common Stock (the “Acquired Shares”), representing 80% of the Company’s currently outstanding shares, for a purchase price of $525,000 in cash.


In addition, pursuant to a Share Escrow and Reset Agreement (the “Reset Agreement”) entered into among the Purchaser, the Sellers’ Representative, the Sellers, the Company and the escrow agent thereunder contemporaneously with the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Sellers placed in escrow an additional 423,928 shares of the Company’s Common Stock currently owned by them (the “Escrow Shares”), which represent all but 70 of the remaining shares of the Company’s Common Stock owned by the Sellers.  Pursuant to the Reset Agreement, upon the future acquisition by the Company, within the five-year period following June 29, 2007 (the “Acquisition Period”), of one or more companies having a combined enterprise value of at least $10 million (a “Threshold Acquisition”), the Escrow Shares will reset, at that time, to a number of newly-issued shares of the Company’s Common Stock that will represent (collectively with the 70 shares previously retained by the Sellers) 5% of the Company’s then fully-diluted Common Stock. In the event that a Threshold Acquisition does not occur within the Acquisition Period, all of the Escrow Shares will be released to the Sellers without any reissuance or adjustment in their amount.


A Threshold Acquisition by the Company did not occur during the Acquisition Period and, as a result, the Company subsequently received the required notice from the Sellers’ Representative requesting the release of the Escrow Shares to the Sellers in accordance with the terms of the Reset Agreement.  Accordingly, on November 12, 2012, all of the Escrow Shares were released to the Sellers without any reissuance or adjustment in their amount.  


The Stock Purchase Agreement, the Escrow Agreement and the Reset Agreement were filed as exhibits to the Company’s Form 8-K and 14F-1 Information Statement, both of which were filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 3, 2007.  See Part IV, Item 15.

NOTE 6 - COMMON STOCK

 

On March 13, 1998, the Company approved a one-for-20 (1:20) reverse stock split. After the split, the Company had authorized 25,000,000 shares and changed the par value from $0.01 to $0.0001. On this same date, 24,050,000 shares were issued to the directors of the Company for services rendered, valued at $0.0001 per share. The stock split is reflected on a retroactive basis.

 

On January 26, 2007, the majority stockholders of the Company voted in favor of amending and restating the Company’s Articles of Incorporation to change the total number of shares which the corporation shall be authorized to issue to 60,000,000 shares of capital stock, such total number of shares shall consist of 50,000,000 shares of $0.0001 par value common voting stock and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, having a par value of $0.0001 per share. The majority stockholders also approved a one-for-ten (1:10) reverse stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding common shares, which became effective on February 15, 2007. The stock split is reflected on a retroactive basis.


NOTE 7 - RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS


Expenses incurred by the Company for legal and filing fees were paid out-of- pocket by a related party. On May 11, 1998, the shareholders of the Company completed a quasi-reorganization whereby the accumulated deficit of the Company was offset against paid-in capital to the extent possible. The quasi- reorganization has been reflected on a retroactive basis.

 

Expenses paid during the years ended December 31, 1999, 1998 and 1997 were paid by the Company’s President and were recorded as additional paid-in capital. Expenses during the year ended December 31, 2006, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001 and 2000 were paid by certain related parties and recorded as loans to shareholders totaling $46,010 at December 31, 2006.  In conjunction with the closing of the transactions under the Stock Purchase Agreement entered into on June 29, 2007, described under “Note 5 – Change in Control of Issuer” above, all such loans, along with an additional $6,945 of expenses paid by certain related parties during the year ended December 31, 2007 and recorded as loans to shareholders, plus the Company’s other related party payables, all of which totaled $66,471 in the aggregate, were converted by that related party into contributions to the Company’s capital, with appropriate adjustments made to the Company’s additional paid-in capital account.  Other expenses during the years ended December 31, 2007 through December 31, 2013 were paid by Mirabella Holdings, LLC, the Company's majority shareholder, and recorded as loans by shareholders totaling $303,383 at December 31, 2013.  The loans are evidenced by a promissory note, are unsecured, are due on demand and accrue interest at the rate of 10% per annum, compounded quarterly.  No payments were made during the year ended December 31, 2013.  Accrued interest for the year ended December 31, 2007 was immaterial and has been accrued in each of the years ended December 31, 2008 through December 31, 2013.  The aggregate amount of accrued interest related to this note totaled $62,894 as of December 31, 2013.   The note was issued by the Company on April 29, 2009 and covers all loans made by Mirabella Holdings, LLC to the Company since November 6, 2007, as well as all loans made since that date and any such loans that may be made by Mirabella Holdings, LLC in the future.  A copy of the note was filed as an exhibit to our Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2008; see Part IV, Item 15 of this Report.   


On April 29, 2009, the Company entered into a management services agreement (the “Management Services Agreement”) with Richland, Gordon & Company (“Richland”), a private investment firm beneficially owned by Alan D. Gordon, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer and one of the Company’s directors.  Pursuant to the Management Services Agreement, Richland provides certain financial and management consulting services to the Company, including, among other things, advice regarding the Company's operations, identification of potential businesses for the Company to acquire or other suitable business combinations for the Company, and advice regarding the Company's general preparation for its initial acquisition, other business combination or financing transaction that may occur in the future.

NOTE 7 - RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS (Continued)


The Management Services Agreement has a term of ten years and provides for the Company to pay to Richland an annual management fee equal to the greater of (i) $120,000 or (ii) 5% of the Company's consolidated EBITDA (as defined in the agreement).  The management fee is payable in quarterly installments in arrears, on April 15, July 15, October 15 and January 15 of each year, with respect to the immediately preceding calendar quarter, equal to the greater of (i) $30,000 and (ii) 5% of the Company's consolidated EBITDA for the immediately preceding calendar quarter, with such payments commencing July 15, 2009 and covering services provided by Richland during the period from January 1, 2008 (prior to the date of the agreement) and continuing through the quarter ending June 30, 2009; however, the management fees accrue and are not initially payable to Richland until the Company’s completion of its initial acquisition or financing that occurs subsequent to the date of the agreement.  Accordingly, we accrued management fees payable to Richland totaling $120,000 during the year ended December 31, 2013, which fees, along with any other management fees that may subsequently accrue, are due and payable to Richland if and when such an acquisition or financing is completed by the Company.  


The Management Services Agreement also provides for the Company to pay a separate, cash transaction-based fee for investment banking services that Richland provides in connection with future acquisitions and financing transactions that may be completed by the Company.  This transaction-based fee equals 1% of the transaction value of any acquisitions or other business combinations or debt or equity financings completed by the Company subsequent to the date of the agreement; however, the amount of the initial transaction-based fee payable to Richland is reduced by the amount of all prior management fees earned by Richland under the agreement.  To date, no transaction-based fee has accrued or is otherwise payable by the Company to Richland.  Under the Management Services Agreement, the Company also reimburses Richland for all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Richland in providing its services to the Company and indemnifies Richland and its agents and affiliates for any damages that they may suffer in connection with providing these services.  This expense reimbursement is payable on April 15, July 15, October 15 and January 15 of each year, with respect to expenses incurred by Richland during the immediately preceding calendar quarter.  To date, no such expenses have been incurred by Richland and, accordingly, no expenses have been reimbursed by the Company to Richland and no expense reimbursement obligation has been accrued or is otherwise payable by the Company.


A copy of the Management Services Agreement was filed as an exhibit to our Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2008; see Part IV, Item 15 of this Report.


Expenses of $87,044 during the year ended December 31, 2013 were paid by Mirabella and recorded as loans by shareholders totaling $303,383 at December 31, 2013.  The accrued interest related to the outstanding loans was $62,894 as of December 31, 2013, and $30,828 as of December 31, 2012.  The loans are evidenced by a promissory note, are unsecured, are due on demand and accrue interest at the rate of 10% per annum, compounded quarterly.  No payments were made during the year ended December 31, 2013.  The note was issued by the Company on April 29, 2009 and covers all loans made by Mirabella to the Company since November 6, 2007, as well as all loans made since that date and any such loans that may be made by Mirabella in the future.  A copy of the note was filed as an exhibit to our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008; see Part IV, Item 15 of that Report.


NOTE 8 – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS


The Company has evaluated subsequent events pursuant to ASC Topic 855 from the balance sheet date through the date the financial statements were issued, and determined there are no events to disclose.

ITEM 9:  CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE


None; not applicable.


ITEM 9A:  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES


Our management, with the participation of our principal executive and principal financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this Annual Report.  Based on that evaluation, our President and CFO, concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by the Annual Report were effective and that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed under the Exchange Act is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to our management, including our President and our CFO, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure.  A controls system cannot provide absolute assurance, however, that the objectives of the controls system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within a company have been detected.


Management’s Annual 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 Exchange Act).  Our internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.


Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements.  Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their control objectives.


Our management, with the participation of the President and our CFO, evaluated the effectiveness of our internal controls over financial reporting as of December 31, 2013.  In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”) in Internal Control – Integrated Framework.  Based on this evaluation, our management, with the participation of the President and CFO, concluded that, as of December 31, 2013, our internal controls over financial reporting were effective.


This Annual Report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding our internal controls over financial reporting.  Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the SEC that permit us to provide only management’s report in this Annual Report.


Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting


There have been no changes in internal control over financial reporting.

ITEM 13:  CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS, AND DIRECTORS INDEPENDENCE


Transactions with Related Persons


Pursuant to a Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Stock Purchase Agreement”) entered into on June 29, 2007, among Mirabella Holdings, LLC (the “Purchaser”), Duane S. Jenson, Travis T. Jenson, Thomas J. Howells, Leonard W. Burningham (collectively with Duane S. Jenson, Travis T. Jenson and Thomas J. Howells, the “Sellers”), and Leonard W. Burningham, as the representative of the Sellers (the “Sellers’ Representative”), the Purchaser acquired from the Sellers a total of 1,966,872 shares of the Company’s Common Stock (the “Acquired Shares”), representing 80% of the Company’s currently outstanding shares, for a purchase price of $525,000 in cash.


In addition, pursuant to a Share Escrow and Reset Agreement (the “Reset Agreement”) entered into among the Purchaser, the Sellers’ Representative, the Sellers, the Company and the escrow agent thereunder contemporaneously with the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Sellers placed in escrow an additional 423,928 shares of the Company’s Common Stock then owned by them (the “Escrow Shares”), which at the time represented all but 70 of the remaining shares of the Company’s Common Stock owned by the Sellers.  Pursuant to the Reset Agreement, if, during the five-year period following June 29, 2007 (the “Acquisition Period”), the Company acquired one or more companies having a combined enterprise value of at least $10 million (a “Threshold Acquisition”), the Escrow Shares would reset, at that time, to a number of newly-issued shares of the Company’s Common Stock that would represent (collectively with the 70 shares previously retained by the Sellers) 5% of the Company’s then fully-diluted Common Stock. If a Threshold Acquisition did not occur during the Acquisition Period, all of the Escrow Shares would be released to the Sellers without any reissuance or adjustment in their amount.


A Threshold Acquisition by the Company did not occur during the Acquisition Period and, as a result, the Company subsequently received the required notice from the Sellers’ Representative requesting the release of the Escrow Shares to the Sellers in accordance with the terms of the Reset Agreement.  Accordingly, on November 12, 2012, all of the Escrow Shares were released to the Sellers without any reissuance or adjustment in their amount.  


The Stock Purchase Agreement, the Escrow Agreement and the Reset Agreement were filed as exhibits to the Company’s Form 8-K and 14F-1 Information Statement, both of which were filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 3, 2007.  See Part VI, Item 15.




33



On April 29, 2009, the Company entered into a management services agreement (the “Management Services Agreement”) with Richland, Gordon & Company (“Richland”), a private investment firm beneficially owned by Alan D. Gordon, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer and one of the Company’s directors.  Pursuant to the Management Services Agreement, Richland provides certain financial and management consulting services to the Company, including, among other things, advice regarding the Company's operations, identification of potential businesses for the Company to acquire or other suitable business combinations for the Company, and advice regarding the Company's general preparation for its initial acquisition, other business combination or financing that may occur in the future.  


The Management Services Agreement has a term of ten years and provides for the Company to pay to Richland an annual management fee equal to the greater of (i) $120,000 or (ii) 5% of the Company's consolidated EBITDA (as defined in the agreement).  The management fee is payable in quarterly installments in arrears, on April 15, July 15, October 15, and January 15 of each year with respect to the immediately preceding calendar quarter equal to the greater of (i) $30,000 and (ii) 5% of the Company’s consolidated EBITDA for the immediately preceding calendar quarter, with such payments commencing July 15, 2009 and covering services provided by Richland during the period from January 1, 2008 (prior to the date of the agreement) and continuing through the quarter ending June 30, 2009; however, the management fees accrue and are not initially payable to Richland until the Company’s completion of its initial acquisition or financing that occurs subsequent to the date of the agreement.  Accordingly, we accrued management fees payable to Richland totaling $120,000 during the year ended December 31, 2013, which fees, along with any other management fees that may subsequently accrue, are due and payable to Richland if and when such an acquisition or financing is completed by the Company.  


The Management Services Agreement also provides for the Company to pay a separate, cash transaction-based fee for investment banking services that Richland provides in connection with future acquisitions and financing transactions that may be completed by the Company.  This transaction-based fee equals 1% of the transaction value of any acquisitions or other business combinations or debt or equity financings completed by the Company subsequent to the date of the agreement; however, the amount of the initial transaction-based fee payable to Richland is reduced by the amount of all prior management fees earned by Richland under the agreement.  To date, no transaction-based fee has accrued or is otherwise payable by the Company to Richland.  Under the Management Services Agreement, the Company also reimburses Richland for all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Richland in providing its services to the Company and indemnifies Richland and its agents and affiliates for any damages that they may suffer in connection with providing these services.  This expense reimbursement is payable on April 15, July 15, October 15 and January 15 of each year, with respect to expenses incurred by Richland during the immediately preceding calendar quarter.  To date, no such expenses have been incurred by Richland and, accordingly, no expenses have been reimbursed by the Company to Richland and no expense reimbursement obligation has been accrued or is otherwise payable by the Company.


A copy of the Management Services Agreement was filed as an exhibit to our Annual Report dated December 31, 2008; see Part IV, Item 15 of this Report.


On April 29, 2009, the Company also issued to Mirabella Holdings, LLC, (”Mirabella”) the Company’s majority shareholder, a demand promissory note to evidence all loans made from by Mirabella to the Company since November 6, 2007 and all loans that may be made from time to time in the future by Mirabella to the Company (the “Mirabella Loans”).  The note is unsecured and the Mirabella Loans bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum, compounded quarterly, and are payable to Mirabella on demand.  A copy of the note was filed as an exhibit to our Annual Report dated December 31, 2008; see Part IV, Item 15 of this Report.


Other than the transactions pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Escrow Agreement, the Reset Agreement, the Mirabella Loans and the Management Services Agreement, there were no other material transactions, or series of similar transactions, during our Company’s last fiscal year, or any currently proposed transactions, or series of similar transactions, to which our Company or any of our subsidiaries was or is to be a party, in which the amount involved exceeded the lesser of $120,000 or one percent of the average of the small business issuer’s total assets at year-end for the last three completed fiscal years and in which any director, executive officer or any security holder who is known to us to own of record or beneficially more than five percent of any class of our common stock, or any member of the immediate family of any of the foregoing persons, had an interest.
