PART I

ITEM 1. BUSINESS.

Company History

JPX Global, Inc., (f.k.a. Jasper Explorations, Inc.) (the “Company”), was organized under the laws of the State of Nevada on December 18, 2008 as Jubilee Resources, Inc., to explore mineral properties in North America. The name of the Company was subsequently changed to Jasper Explorations, Inc. on December 16, 2010. The name of the Company was again changed on January 3, 2013 from Jasper Explorations, Inc. to JPX Global, Inc.

 

On February 15, 2013, the Company entered into an agreement to acquire all of the assets of Scorpex, in exchange for 103,250,000 shares of Common Stock and 5,000,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock of the Company. Upon the acquisition of Scorpex, there was an implied option for either party to rescind the original acquisition. During the year that option was exercised and on May 16, 2013, we unwound the acquisition of Scorpex and resumed its operation prior to February 15, 2013, primarily, the exploration for copper, molybdenum and other minerals.

 

On February 5, 2014, the Company entered into an agreement to acquire all of the assets of Scorpex, Inc., a Nevada corporation, in exchange for 105,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 10,000,000 shares of Series B Preferred Stock (the “Acquisition”). We are now expanding our business to further develop our operations as a development stage waste disposal and recycling company, with the goal of storing and disposing all types of waste, including those classified as industrial, toxic, and hazardous. With the acquisition of the Scorpex assets, the Company has a business model to capitalize on the opportunities available in the integrated waste, and waste management services sector primarily in Mexico. through its exclusive license with Tratamientos Ambientales Scorpion S.A. de C.V., ("TAS") a Mexican corporation, is developing approximately 26 acres it owns located at Fraccion A-2 Del Rancho El Encinito Km 18.7 Carretera A Ensenada-OJOS Delegacion Real Del Castillo, Ensenada, B.C. CP 22800 for the purpose of storing and disposing of residential and commercial, toxic, non-toxic, hazardous and non-hazardous waste. In Addition to the Ensenada property detailed above, TAS has finalized a lease for a second property of approximately 5 hectacres located at Parcela 45 Y 46 Plan Libertador Blvd. 2000, Rosarito, B.C. This Rosarito lease is a 6-month term lease with a lessee option to renew every 6-months indefinitely. The cost for the lease is $2500 per month. TAS is a Mexican holding company that owns property, permits, and limited structures and has licensed its assets exclusively to JPX Global, Inc. in return for twenty percent (20%) of net revenues from operations in Mexico.

 

Waste Disposal Plan of Operations

 

We are a development stage company with no history of operations. As a result of the Acquisition of the Scorpex assets, the Company intends to further capitalize on opportunities in its integrated waste, and waste management service operations, including the receiving, storage, transfer and disposal in an environmental manner. In providing these services, we intend to actively pursue projects and initiatives that we believe make a positive difference for our environment which will be focused on gasification of waste in an environmental manner. It is expected that our customer base will include commercial, industrial, municipal and residential customers, other waste management companies, electric utilities, and governmental entity properties. We are a development stage company and have not realized any revenues. We do not have sufficient capital to enable us to commence and complete our exploration program. We will require additional financing in order to conduct the exploration programs described herein. Our auditors have issued a going concern opinion, raising substantial doubt about the Company’s financial prospects and the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Waste management and collection involves picking up and transporting waste from where it was generated to our planned gasification facilities. We intend to sub-contract our collection services. Waste is defined as nonhazardous waste sent off-site for final disposal through gasification including household waste, commercial, business or institutional waste, construction and demolition debris, regulated medical waste, yard waste, sludge, scrap tires and hazardous waste.

 

The Waste Gasification/Thermal Oxidation Plant, where we intend to convert waste to ash, is a two-stage waste combustion process that converts combustible organic matter from its existing solid, sludge or liquid state into a gas under an oxygen depleted environment (also known as “oxidation”). The resulting gas product is then well mixed with ambient air before being burnt off in a secondary gas-processing unit.

 

 

 

The technology reverts any man made or organic waste product back to its natural state, which is inert ash or breathable air. The technology is capable of handling community solid waste content and biosolids including medical waste, tires, plastics, wood waste, oily waste, furniture and other organic or man-made compounds found in municipal or industrial waste.

 

The intended plant is comprised of three basic components: a Primary Gasification Cell, a Secondary Gas Processor, and a computerized Process Logic Controller. Combustible waste material is placed into the primary gasification cell through the load access door. In some facilities this can be done via a loading conveyor. The proposed design is to have collection vehicles dump their waste load directly into the primary oxidation cell. None of these components have been built on the property.

 

The Primary Cell can be either a batch or continuous feed processor. Based on our research, batch processing provides the most efficient and cost effective strategy for the waste management solution. In the case of batch processing once the cell has received that days collected waste, the door is closed and the process is initiated. The cell does not have to be full for the system to be activated.

 

An operator is responsible for supervising the loading of waste material, and initiating the process startup. A computer keystroke (or optional manual button and lever control) which pre-heats the secondary gas-processing unit accomplishes this start-up. Once that unit reaches its pre-set temperature, the primary gasification cell heater is activated, and the process begins. Approximately 8 to 12 hours later, the organic wastes in the primary cell will have been converted to a gas, and the cycle will generally be complete. The system will move to its “cool down” mode. In another 4-6 hours, the system may be re-loaded, and another process started, with or without the removal of the preceding load’s ash material.

 

Residual materials (bottles, cans, ash and misc.) need only to be removed periodically. The composition of MSW consists mainly of organic and combustible waste. Glass and metals are easily extracted in our plant design as it includes equipment that will assist in the process and cut down on labor man-hours. Ash removal is either an automated or manual process. In automated unloading, the base of the primary gasification cell contains a ductile iron furnace floor conveyor that evacuates material remaining in the base of the unit through a side access door. This dry waste material empties into a storage bin, which can be removed to another location for recycling.

 

Aluminum, metal and glass can be completely recovered. Emissions may be captured and used as a nonfossil fuel source for various “on site” processes.

 

Our intention is to take the ash that is left over from our disposal process and create a brick out of the residue. The machines that will be used, through 60 thousand pounds of pressure, will create this brick that can then be donated back to any municipality for various uses.

 

We intend to provide our services under two types of agreements:

 

For commercial and industrial collection services, we intend to enter a multi-year service agreement. The fees under these agreements will be influenced by factors such as collection frequency, type and volume or weight of the waste collected, distance to our facility, labor costs, cost of gasification and general market factors.

 

For most residential collection services, we will have a contract with, or a franchise granted by, a municipality, homeowners’ association or some other regional authority that will give us the exclusive right to service all or a portion of the homes in an area. These contracts or franchises are typically for periods of one to five years. We expect the fees for residential collection to be either paid by the municipality or authority from their tax revenues or service charges, or are paid directly by the residents receiving the service.

 

With its current assets, and without further financing, our auditor has expressed substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a Going Concern. However, the Company plans to raise the capital necessary to fund our business through a private placement and public offering of our common stock.

 

Because the company has incurred losses, income tax expenses are immaterial. No tax benefits have been booked related to operating loss carry-forwards, given the uncertainty of the Company being able to utilize such loss carry-forwards in future years. The Company anticipates incurring additional losses during the coming year.

 

 

 

Market

 

We believe that the $55 billion US waste management industry will play a substantial role in the coming economic recovery and the growth of worldwide trade as traditional waste conversion, as well as the more technical methods such as gasification, plasma arc gasification, hydrolysis, and pyrolysis become cheaper and more efficient. In a world where in 2011 alone, the world’s rapidly increasing urban population generated nearly 2 billion tons of municipal solid waste (“MSW”), it is no longer sufficient to discard trash. It is estimated that this number will rise to at least 2.9 billion tons by 2022. Today, more than 800 thermal waste-to-energy (“WTE”) plants operate in nearly 40 countries around the globe. Led by Asia-Pacific and Europe, this number is expected to grow rapidly over the next decade, potentially treating 396 million tons of MSW annually by 2022 with an estimated output of 151 terawatt hours (TWh) of electricity. Of the municipal solid waste generated, 33 percent was recycled in 2011, up from 32 percent in 2010.

 

Competition

 

The solid waste industry is very competitive. Competition comes from a number of publicly held solid waste companies, private solid waste companies, large commercial and industrial companies handling their own waste collection or disposal operations and public and private waste-to-energy companies. We also have competition from municipalities and regional government authorities with respect to residential and commercial solid waste collection and solid waste landfills.

 

Operating costs, disposal costs and collection fees vary widely throughout Mexico. The prices that we intend to charge will be determined locally, and typically vary by the volume and weight, type of waste collected, treatment requirements, risk of handling or disposal, frequency of collections, distance to final disposal sites, labor costs and amount and type of equipment furnished to the customer. We will face intense competition in our core business based on pricing and quality of service. However, we believe that we can distinguish the Company from our competition by providing precise accounting, exceptional customer service, comprehensive tax management, and competitive pricing. While we intend to offer some customers credit terms, in most cases the credit lines will be secured by corporate or personal guarantees, deposits, letters of credit or other bank instruments, and liens.

 

Compliance with Government Regulation

 

We will be required to conduct all mineral exploration and waste disposal activities in accordance with government regulations. Such operations are subject to various laws governing land use, the protection of the environment, production, exports, taxes, labor standards, occupational health, waste disposal, toxic substances, safety and other matters. Unfavorable amendments to current laws, regulations and permits governing operations and activities of resource exploration companies, or more stringent implementation thereof, could have a materially adverse impact and cause increases in capital expenditures which could result in a cessation of operations.

 

Employees

 

As of December 31, 2013, we had approximately 10 employees/independent contractors including a manager / attorney, consultant, and property security. We used the services of various contract personnel from time to time. Although national unemployment rates remain high relative to historical averages, there exists a significant amount of competition for skilled personnel in the waste management and waste conversion industry. Nevertheless, we expect to be able to attract and retain such additional employees as are necessary, commensurate with the anticipated future expansion of our business resulting from future acquisitions and joint ventures. Further, we expect to continue to use consultants, contract labor, attorneys and accountants as necessary.

Number of Holders

 

As of March 27, 2014, there were approximately 28 record holders of our common stock, not counting shares held in “street name” in brokerage accounts which is unknown. As of March 27, 2014, there were 137,193,725 shares of common stock outstanding on record with our stock transfer agent.

 

Dividends

 

The Company has not paid any cash dividends on its Common Stock since inception and does not anticipate paying cash dividends in the foreseeable future. The Company anticipates that any future earnings will be retained for use in developing and/or expanding the business.

 

Sales of Unregistered Securities

 

On February 5, 2014, the Company entered into an agreement to acquire all of the assets of Scorpex, Inc., a Nevada corporation, in exchange for 105,000,000 shares of common stock and 10,000,000 shares of Series B Preferred Stock of the Company.

 

On January 6, 2014, the Company issued 1,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock as security for outstanding debts of the Company to its controlling shareholder Joseph Caywood. Although the preferred stock carries no dividend, distribution, liquidation or conversion rights, each share of series A preferred stock carries one hundred thousand (100,000) votes, and holders of our preferred stock are able to vote together with our common stockholders on all matters upon which common stockholders may vote. Consequently, the holder of our preferred stock is able to unilaterally control the election of our board of directors and, ultimately, the direction of our Company.

 

On July 9, 2013 the Company issued 158,380 common shares at $1.25 per share for services rendered.

 

On June 19, 2013 the Company issued 1,875,000 common shares at $1.25 per share for services rendered.

 

On August 17, 2011 the Company issued 100,000 common shares at par value for services rendered.

 

On August 31, 2010, the company issued 30,000,000 private placement common shares to its founder for cash of $30,000.

 

With respect to the transactions noted above, no solicitation was made and no underwriting discounts were given or paid in connection with these transactions. The Company believes that the issuance of the shares as described above was exempt from registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933.

 

Penny Stock Rules

 

The SEC has also adopted rules that regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in “penny stocks” as such term is defined by Rule 15g-9. Penny stocks are generally equity securities with a 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 shares offered by this prospectus constitute penny stocks under the Exchange Act. The shares may remain penny stocks for the foreseeable future. The classification of our shares as penny stocks makes it more difficult for a broker-dealer to sell the stock into a secondary market, which makes it more difficult for a purchaser to liquidate his or her investment. Any broker-dealer engaged by the purchaser for the purpose of selling his or her shares in JPX Global will be subject to the penny stock rules.

 

The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, deliver a standardized risk disclosure document approved by the SEC, which: (i) contains a description of the nature and level of risk in the market for penny stocks in both public offerings and secondary trading; (ii) 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 to such duties or other requirements of the Securities Act; (iii) contains a brief, clear, narrative

 

 

description of a dealer market, including bid and ask prices for penny stocks and significance of the spread between the bid and ask price; (iv) contains a toll-free telephone number for inquiries on disciplinary actions; (v) defines significant terms in the disclosure document or in the conduct of trading in penny stocks; and (vi) contains such other information and is in such form as the SEC shall require by rule or regulation. The broker-dealer also must provide to the customer, prior to effecting any transaction in a penny stock, (i) bid and offer quotations for the penny stock; (ii) the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction; (iii) 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 (iv) monthly account statements 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 to transactions involving penny stocks, and a signed and dated copy of a written suitability statement. These disclosure requirements will have the effect of reducing the trading activity in the secondary market for our stock because it will be subject to these penny stock rules. Therefore, stockholders may have difficulty selling those securities.

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This report contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. We use words such as anticipate, believe, plan, expect, future, intend and similar expressions to identify such forward-looking statements. You should not place too much reliance on these forward-looking statements. Our actual results are likely to differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements for many reasons.

 

Overview

 

On February 5, 2014, the Company entered into an agreement to acquire all of the assets of Scorpex, Inc., a Nevada corporation, in exchange for 105,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 10,000,000 shares of Series B Preferred Stock. We are now expanding our business to further develop our operations to capitalize on the opportunities available primarily in Mexico, in the integrated waste, and waste management service operations, including the receiving, storage, transfer and disposal of waste in an environmental manner. In providing these services, we intend to actively pursue projects and initiatives that we believe make a positive difference for our environment which will be focused on gasification of waste in an environmental manner. It is expected that our customer base will include commercial, industrial, municipal and residential customers, other waste management companies, electric utilities, and governmental entity properties. We are an exploration stage company and we have not realized any revenues to date. We do not have sufficient capital to enable us to commence and complete our exploration program. We will require additional financing in order to conduct the exploration program described herein." Our auditors have issued a going concern opinion, raising substantial doubt about the Company's financial prospects, and the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. As a waste management company, our principal sources of revenue will result from waste management contracts, but will also include revenue from ancillary services related to the handling and conversion of waste. Expenses which comprise the costs of goods sold include the operational and staffing costs of the trucks and other vehicles used for transporting and special licensing where required. General and administrative expenses have been comprised of administrative wages and benefits; occupancy and office expenses; outside legal, accounting and other professional fees; travel and other miscellaneous office and administrative expenses. Selling and marketing expenses include selling/marketing wages and benefits, advertising and promotional expenses, as well as travel and other miscellaneous related expenses.

 

Because we have incurred losses, income tax expenses are immaterial. No tax benefits have been booked related to operating loss carryforwards, given our uncertainty of being able to utilize such loss carryforwards in future years. We anticipate incurring additional losses during the coming year.

 

 

 

Results of Operations

 

Following is management’s discussion of the relevant items affecting results of operations for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.

 

Revenues. The Company generated net revenues of $-0- during both years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012.

 

Consulting Fees. Consulting fees for the year ended December 31, 2013 were $2,541,783 compared to $-0- for the year ended December 31, 2012. During the year ended December 31, 2013 the Company issued 2,033,380 shares of common stock for services rendered to the Company. The shares were valued at $1.25 per share for financial statement purposes.

 

Professional Fees. Professional fees for the year ended December 31, 2013 were $71,711 compared to $14,557 for the year ended December 31, 2012. Professional fees consist mainly of the fees for the audits and review of the Company’s financial statements as well as the filings with the SEC. We anticipate that professional fees will increase in future periods as we scale up our operations.

 

Loss on Failed Business Venture. During 2013, the Company made payments in anticipation of engaging in a joint venture for the purpose of sand and gravel excavation. The originally intended venture did not occur within the contractually specified time frame, and therefore, became null and void. The payments made of $76,415 were specified in the agreement as non-refundable and have been recorded as a loss on failed business venture.

 

Other General and Administrative Expenses. Other general and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2013 were $26,544 compared to $-0- for the year ended December 31, 2012. The Company expects other general and administrative expenses to increase in future periods as we scale up our operations.

 

Other Income (Expense). The Company had net other expenses of $2,315,845 for the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to $-0- during 2012. This amount includes $2,113,526 due to a derivative liability on our $1,500 convertible debt due to ASC 815-40-25 taint related to the conversion terms of another of our convertible notes. This derivative liability was calculated using the Black-Scholes model. Other expenses consist of interest expenses and debt discount expenses related to promissory notes issued by the Company.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of December 31, 2013, the Company’s primary source of liquidity consisted of $565 in cash and cash equivalents. The Company holds its cash reserves in trust account. Since inception, the Company has financed its operations through a combination of short -term loan from the founder and through the private placement of its common stock.

 

The Company has sustained significant net losses which have resulted in an accumulated deficit at December 31, 2013 of $5,083,876 and is currently experiencing a substantial shortfall in operating capital which raises doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company generated a net loss for the year ended December 31, 2013 of $5,032,298 compared to a net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 of $14,557. Without additional revenues, working capital loans, or equity investment, there is substantial doubt as to our ability to continue operations.

 

We believe these conditions have resulted from the inherent risks associated with small public companies. Such risks include, but are not limited to, the ability to (i) generate revenues and sales of our products and services at levels sufficient to cover our costs and provide a return for investors, (ii) attract additional capital in order to finance growth, and (iii) successfully compete with other comparable companies having financial, production and marketing resources significantly greater than those of the Company.

 

We believe that our capital resources are insufficient for ongoing operations, with minimal current cash reserves, particularly given the resources necessary to expand our waste management business. We will likely require considerable amounts of financing to make any significant advancement in our business strategy. There is presently no agreement in place that will guarantee financing for our Company, and we cannot assure you that we will be able to raise any additional funds, or that such funds will be available on acceptable terms. Funds raised through future equity financing will likely be

 

 

substantially dilutive to current shareholders. Lack of additional funds will materially affect our Company and our business, and may cause us to substantially curtail or even cease operations. Consequently, you could incur a loss of your entire investment in the Company.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

We believe the following critical accounting policies are used in the preparation of our financial statements:

 

Use of Estimates.     The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates. On a periodic basis, management reviews those estimates, including those related to valuation allowances, loss contingencies, income taxes, and projection of future cash flows.

 

Research and Development.     Research and development costs are charged to operations when incurred and are included in operating expenses.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

See Note 1 in the Notes to the Financial Statements for recent accounting pronouncements.

 

There were various other accounting standards and interpretations recently issued, none of which are expected to a have a material impact on the Company's financial position, operations or cash flows.

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This report contains or incorporates by reference forward-looking statements within the meaning of the United States Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 concerning our future business plans and strategies, the receipt of working capital, future revenues and other statements that are not historical in nature. In this report, forward-looking statements are often identified by the words “anticipate,” “plan,” “believe,” “expect,” “estimate,” and the like. These forward-looking statements reflect our current beliefs, expectations and opinions with respect to future events, and involve future risks and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied.

 

Other uncertainties that could affect the accuracy of forward-looking statements include:

 

the worldwide economic situation;
any changes in interest rates or inflation;
the willingness and ability of third parties to honor their contractual commitments;
our ability to raise additional capital, as it may be affected by current conditions in the  stock market and competition for risk capital;
our capital expenditures, as they may be affected by delays or cost overruns;
environmental and other regulations, as the same presently exist or may later be amended;
our ability to identify, finance and integrate any future acquisitions; and
the volatility of our common stock price.

 

This list is not exhaustive of the factors that may affect any of our forward-looking statements. You should read this report completely and with the understanding that our actual future results may be materially different from what we expect. These forward-looking statements represent our beliefs, expectations and opinions only as of the date of this report. We do not intend to update these forward looking statements except as required by law. We qualify all of our forward-looking statements by these cautionary statements.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

 

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders

JPX Global, Inc. (formerly Jasper Exploration, Inc.) (a development stage company)

Brighton, MI

 

We have audited the accompanying balance sheet of JPX Global, Inc. (formerly Jasper Exploration, Inc.) (a development stage company) as of December 31, 2013 and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ deficit and cash flows for the year then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management.  Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

 

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

 

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of JPX Global, Inc. (formerly Jasper Exploration, Inc.) (a development stage company) as of December 31, 2013 and the results of its operations and cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2013 in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America.

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  The Company has suffered recurring losses, has no significant assets, and has no significant current operations which raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.  Management’s plans in regard to these matters are described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

JPX Global Inc.’s management is responsible for these financial statements. 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 audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the company’s internal control over the financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit 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 JPX Global Inc. (An Exploration Stage Company) as of December 31, 2012 and 2011 and the result of its operations and its cash flows from inception (December 18, 2008) to December 31, 2012, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

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

JPX Global, Inc.

(f/k/a Jasper Explorations Inc.)

(A Development Stage Company)
NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2013 and 2012

 

1. ORGANIZATION

 

The company was incorporated under the laws of the state of Nevada on December 18, 2008, with 75,000,000 authorized common shares with a par value of $0.001. On January 3, 2013, the Company approved the action to amend and restate the Articles of Incorporation of the and increase the authorized common shares to 500,000,000 and create and authorize 40,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock which was approved by written consent of the holder representing approximately 67% of the outstanding voting securities of the Company. Series A Preferred Stock was created and designated with super-voting rights of 100 votes per share of Series A Preferred Stock held, and is convertible into 10 shares of common stock for every share of preferred stock held.

 

The company was organized for the purpose of acquiring and exploring mineral claims. The company acquired a mineral claim with unknown reserves. The company does not presently have any operations and is considered to be in the exploration stage.

 

2. GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the company will continue as a going concern. The company does not have a sufficient working capital for its planned activity, and to service its debt, which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The Company has incurred accumulated losses of $5,083,876 since inception through December 31, 2013.

 

Continuation of the company as a going concern is dependent upon obtaining additional working capital and the management of the company has developed a strategy which it believes will accomplish this objective through short term loans from an officer-director, and additional equity investments, which will enable the company to continue operations for the coming year. These financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts, or amounts and classification of liabilities that might result from this uncertainty.

 

3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Accounting Methods

 

The company recognizes income and expenses based on the accrual method of accounting. The Basis is United States generally accepted accounting principles.

 

Income Tax

 

The company utilizes the liability method of accounting for income taxes. Under the liability method deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the differences between financial reporting and the tax bases of the assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect, when the differences are expected to be reversed. An allowance against deferred tax assets is recorded, when it is more likely than not that such tax benefits will not be realized.

 

Since inception through December 31, 2013, the company had a net operating loss available for carry forward of approximately $5,100,000.

 

 

 

JPX Global, Inc.

(f/k/a Jasper Explorations Inc.)

(A Development Stage Company)
NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2013 and 2012

 

Basic and Diluted Net Income (loss) Per Share

 

The Company follows ASC Topic 260 to account for the earnings per share. Basic earnings per common share (“EPS”) calculations are determined by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the year. Diluted earnings per common share calculations are determined by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common shares and dilutive common share equivalents outstanding. Because the Company does not have any potentially dilutive securities as at December 31, 2013, the accompanying presentation is only of basic loss per common share.

 

Cash & Cash Equivalents

 

For the purposes of the statement of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Revenue is recognized upon completion of services or delivery of goods where the sales price is fixed or determinable and the collectability is reasonably assured. The Company currently has no revenue to date.

 

Advertising and Market Development

 

The company expenses advertising and market development costs as research data expenses. As at December 31, 2013 the company has not incurred any cost on advertising and market development.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company reviews and evaluates long-lived assets for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the related carrying amounts may not be recoverable. The assets are subject to impairment consideration under FASB ASC 360-10-35-17 if events or circumstances indicate that their carrying amount might not be recoverable. When the Company determines that an impairment analysis should be done, the analysis will be performed using the rules of FASB ASC 930-360-35, Asset Impairment, and 360-10 through 15-5, Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets.

 

Environmental Requirements

 

At the report date, environmental requirements related to a formally held mineral claim are unknown and therefore any estimate of future costs cannot be made.

 

Mineral Property Acquisitions Costs

 

Costs of acquisition and option costs of mineral rights are capitalized upon acquisition. Mine development costs incurred to develop new ore deposits, to expand the capacity of mines, or to develop mine areas substantially in advance of current production are also capitalized once proven and probable reserves exist and the property is a commercially mineable property.

 

Costs incurred to maintain current production or to maintain assets on a standby basis are charged to operations. If the Company does not continue with exploration after the completion of the feasibility study, the mineral rights will be expensed at that time. Costs of abandoned projects are charged to mining costs including related property and equipment costs. To determine if these costs are in excess of their recoverable amount periodic evaluation of carrying value of capitalized costs and any related property and equipment costs are based upon expected future cash flows and/or estimated salvage value in accordance with FASB Accounting Standards Codification (ASC) 360-10-35-15, Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets.

(A Development Stage Company)
NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2013 and 2012

 

Various factors could impact our ability to achieve forecasted production schedules. Additionally, commodity prices, capital expenditure requirements and reclamation costs could differ from the assumptions the Company may use in cash flow models from exploration stage mineral interests. This, however, involves further risks in addition to those factors applicable to mineral interests where proven and probable reserves have been identified, due to the lower level of confidence that the identified mineralized material can ultimately be mined economically.

 

Estimates and Assumptions

 

Management uses estimates and assumptions in preparing financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Those estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of the assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported revenues and expenses. Actual results could vary from the estimates that were assumed in preparing these financial statements.

 

Stock-based compensation

 

The Company records stock based compensation in accordance with the guidance in ASC Topic 505 and 718 which requires the Company to recognize expenses related to the fair value of its employee stock option awards. This eliminates accounting for share-based compensation transactions using the intrinsic value and requires instead that such transactions be accounted for using a fair-value-based method. The Company recognizes the cost of all share-based awards on a graded vesting basis over the vesting period of the award.

 

The Company accounts for equity instruments issued in exchange for the receipt of goods or services from other than employees in accordance with FASB ASC 718-10 and the conclusions reached by the FASB ASC 505-50. Costs are measured at the estimated fair market value of the consideration received or the estimated fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. The value of equity instruments issued for consideration other than employee services is determined on the earliest of a performance commitment or completion of performance by the provider of goods or services as defined by FASB ASC 505-50.

 

Fair value of financial instruments

 

Fair value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management as of December 31, 2013. The respective carrying value of certain on-balance-sheet financial instruments approximated their fair values. These financial instruments include cash, prepaid expenses and accounts payable. Fair values were assumed to approximate carrying values for cash and payables because they are short term in nature and their carrying amounts approximate fair values or they are payable on demand.

 

Level 1: The preferred inputs to valuation efforts are "quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities," with the caveat that the reporting entity must have access to that market. Information at this level is based on direct observations of transactions involving the same assets and liabilities, not assumptions, and thus offers superior reliability. However, relatively few items, especially physical assets, actually trade in active markets.

 

Level 2: FASB acknowledged that active markets for identical assets and liabilities are relatively uncommon and, even when they do exist, they may be too thin to provide reliable information. To deal with this shortage of direct data, the board provided a second level of inputs that can be applied in three situations.

 

Level 3: If inputs from levels 1 and 2 are not available, FASB acknowledges that fair value measures of many assets and liabilities are less precise. The board describes Level 3 inputs as "unobservable," and limits their use by saying they "shall be used to measure fair value to the extent that observable inputs are not available." This category allows "for situations in which there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability at the measurement date". Earlier in the standard, FASB explains that "observable inputs" are gathered from sources other than the reporting company and that they are expected to reflect assumptions made by market participants.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

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

 

4. CONVERTIBLE LOAN – RELATED PARTY

 

On December 18, 2008, the company entered into a Promissory Note agreement with the CEO of the Company. The note was for a sum of $1,500 non interest bearing, due and payable on December 31, 2010. If note is not paid on December 31, 2010, the note can be converted to shares of common stock of the Company for $.001 per share. At the time the note was issued the Company did not have a fair value for the stock therefore no beneficial conversion feature exists. At this time, the Company and the debt holder have not converted the loan into shares of the Company, and the Company does not currently plan to. The Company and the note holder have verbally agreed that the Company will pay the loan off as it is able to without penalty. As at December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, the balance in note payable account is $1,500. Due to the convertible note described in Note 5 below, it was determined that there was a derivative liability associated with this related party note as the Company cannot determine if there are enough authorized shares to satisfy all conversions of debt into common stock. The amount of the derivative liability at December 31, 2013 was $2,113,526, as calculated using the Black Scholes model which has been recorded on the balance sheet along with a corresponding expense on the statement of operations.

 

5. CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE

 

Convertible notes payable consisted of the following:

 

   December 31,  December 31,
   2013  2012
Convertible note issued on June 25, 2013, unsecured, interest at 8%, due on March 28, 2014, in default.  $71,250   $—   
           
                          Total convertible notes payable   71,250    —   
           
                           Less: current portion   (71,250)   —   
           
                           Long-term convertible notes payable  $—      —   

 

On June 25, 2013, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (“SPA”) in connection with the issuance of a convertible promissory note in the aggregate principal amount of $47,500.  The Note matures on March 28, 2014, and bears interest at the rate of 8% per annum.  The Note may not be prepaid prior to its Maturity Date. The Note, together with all interest as accrued, is convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price equal to 60% multiplied by the average of the lowest three (3) trading prices for the Common Stock during the ten (10) trading day period ending on the latest complete trading day prior to the date of conversion (representing a discount rate of 40%). The SPA and the Note contain representations, warranties, conditions, restrictions, and covenants of the Company that are customary in such transactions with smaller companies.  The Note may be accelerated by the holder in the event of default and the rate of interest on the Note will increase to 22% per annum.  In addition, the amount due and payable under the Note (and, consequently, the number of shares of common stock convertible thereunto) may be increased to 150% of the principal amount of the Note, plus default interest as accrued thereon, in the event of default.  The Note is a direct financial obligation of the Company and is considered a current liability of the Company for accounting purposes.  On November 20, 2013, the Company defaulted on this Note.  As a result of this default the Note became immediately due within 5 days of the notice and the principal amount of $71,250 was demanded by the holder of the Note, Asher Enterprises, Inc.

Series A Preferred Stock was created and designated with super-voting rights of 100 votes per share of Series A Preferred Stock held, and is convertible into 10 shares of common stock for every share of preferred stock held.

 

On February 15, 2013, the Company entered into an agreement to acquire all of the assets of Scorpex, a Company controlled by the Company’s controlling shareholder Joseph Caywood, in exchange for 103,250,000 shares of Common Stock and 5,000,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock of the Company. Upon the acquisition of Scorpex, there was an implied option for either party to rescind the original acquisition.

During 2013, the Company issued 2,033,380 shares of common stock for services rendered to the Company. The stock was valued at $1.25 per share.

 

7. SIGNIFICANT TRANSACTIONS WITH RELATED PARTIES

 

On December 18, 2008, the company entered into a Promissory Note agreement with the CEO of the Company. The note was for a sum of $1,500 non interest bearing, due and payable on December 31, 2010. If note is not paid on December 31, 2010, the note can be converted to shares of common stock of Jasper Exploration for $.001 per share. At the time the note was issued the Company did not have a fair value for the stock therefore no beneficial conversion feature exists. At this time, the Company and the debt holder have not converted the loan into shares of the Company, and the Company does not currently plan to. The Company and the note holder have verbally agreed that the Company will pay the loan off as it is able without penalty.

 

From time to time, the Company receives cash advances from related parties, including directors and officers of the Company to cover operating expenses. The advances are without interest and there are no terms of repayment. The total amount outstanding as of December 31, 2013 and 2012 was $141,725 and $49,978, respectively.

 

8. INCOME TAXES

 

The Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) has issued FASB ASC 740-10.  FASB ASC 740-10 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise's financial statements.  This standard requires a company to determine whether it is more likely than not that a tax position will be sustained will be sustained upon examination based upon the technical merits of the position.  If the more-likely-than- not threshold is met, a company must measure the tax position to determine the amount to recognize in the financial statements.  As a result of the implementation of this standard, the Company performed a review of its material tax positions in accordance with recognition and measurement standards established by FASB ASC 740-10.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2013 and 2012

 

Deferred taxes are provided on a 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 basis.  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 changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

 

At December 31, 2013 the Company had net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $1,729,000 that may be offset against future taxable income through 2033. No tax benefits have been reported in the financial statements, because the potential tax benefits of the net operating loss carry forwards are offset by a valuation allowance of the same amount.

 

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

 

Net deferred tax assets consist of the following components as of December 31, 2013 and 2012:

 

   2013  2012
Deferred tax assets:          
NOL Carryover  $1,729,033   $18,052 
Valuation allowance   (1,729,033)   (18,052)
           
Net deferred tax asset  $—     $—   

 

The income tax provision differs from the amount of income tax determined by applying the U.S. federal and state income tax rates of 34% to pretax income from continuing operations for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 due to the following:

 

   2013  2012
Current Federal Tax  $—     $—   
Current State Tax   —      —   
Change in NOL Benefit   1,710,981    5,095 
Valuation allowance   (1,710,981)   (5,095)
   $—     $—   

 

A reconciliation of the beginning and ending amount of unrecognized tax benefits is as follows:

 

    Year ended December 31,      
    2013    2012 
Beginning balance  $—     $—   
Additions based on tax positions related to current year   —      —   
Additions for tax positions of prior years   —      —   
Reductions for tax positions of prior years   —      —   
Reductions in benefit due to income tax expense   —      —   
Ending balance  $—     $—   

 

At December 31, 2013, the Company had no unrecognized tax benefits that, if recognized, would affect the effective tax rate.

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2013 and 2012

 

The Company did not have any tax positions for which it is reasonably possible that the total amount of unrecognized tax benefits will significantly increase or decrease within the next 12 months.

 

The Company includes interest and penalties arising from the underpayment of income taxes in the consolidated statements of operations in the provision for income taxes.  As of December 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company had no accrued interest or penalties related to uncertain tax positions.

 

The tax years that remain subject to examination by major taxing jurisdictions are those for the years ended December 31, 2013, 2012, and 2011.

 

9. FAILED BUSINESS VENTURE

 

During 2013, the Company made payments in anticipation of engaging in a joint venture for the purpose of sand and gravel excavation. The originally intended venture did not occur within the contractually specified time frame, and therefore, became null and void. The payments made of $76,415 were specified in the agreement as non-refundable and have been recorded as a loss on failed business venture.

 

10. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

Subsequent to December 31, 2013, Asher Enterprises has converted $42,000 of a promissory note into 60,345 shares of common stock as described in Note 6.

 

On January 6, 2014, the Company issued 1,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock as security for outstanding debts of the Company to its controlling shareholder Joseph Caywood. Although the preferred stock carries no dividend, distribution, liquidation or conversion rights, each share of series A preferred stock carries one hundred thousand (100,000) votes, and holders of our preferred stock are able to vote together with our common stockholders on all matters upon which common stockholders may vote. Consequently, the holder of our preferred stock is able to unilaterally control the election of our board of directors and, ultimately, the direction of our Company.

 

On February 5, 2014, the Company entered into an agreement to acquire all of the assets of Scorpex, Inc., a Nevada corporation, in exchange for 105,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 10,000,000 shares of Series B Preferred Stock. The Series B Preferred Stock is convertible into 10 shares of common stock and is entitled to vote ratably together with holders of the Company’s common stock on all matters upon which common stockholders may vote. We are now expanding our business to further develop our operations as a development stage waste disposal and recycling company, with the goal of storing and disposing all types of waste, including those classified as industrial, toxic, and hazardous. With the acquisition of the Scorpex assets, the Company has a business model to capitalize on the opportunities available in the integrated waste, and waste management services sector primarily in Mexico.

 

The Company has evaluated subsequent events for the year ending December 31, 2013 through the date the financial statements were issued, and concluded there were no other events or transactions, other than those disclosed above, occurring during this period that required recognition or disclosure in its financial statements.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

There have been no change in our accountants during the last two fiscal years, and we have not had any disagreements with our existing accountants.

 

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

(a)   We maintain a system of controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. As of December 31, 2013, under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, management has evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. Based on that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

 

As permitted by applicable SEC rules, this report does not include an attestation report of our independent registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report, which is included in Item 8 above, 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.

 

(b)    There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the year ended December 31, 2013 that materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.

 

MANAGEMENT’S REPORT ON INTERNAL CONTROLS OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rules 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 in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

-Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and disposition of assets;

 

-Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and our directors; and

 

-Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention and timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on our financial statements.

 

Internal control systems, no matter how well designed, have inherent limitations. Therefore, even those systems that are determined to be effective provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

 

 

Management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on criteria for effective internal control over financial reporting described in Internal Control – Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission as determined to apply to a company our size.

 

Based on its assessment, management concluded that we maintained effective internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2013.

(1) The business address of our sole director is 9864 E Grand River, Ste 110-301, Brighton, MI 48116.

 

Director Independence

 

We consider our sole member of the board of directors an “independent director” in accordance with the published listing requirements of the NYSE Euronext Stock Exchange. The independence definition of the NYSE includes a series of objective tests, such as that the director is not, and has not been for at least three years, one of our employees and that neither the director, nor any of his family members has engaged in various types of business dealings with us. In addition, we are required to consider “all relevant facts and circumstances” in making our determination as to the independence of our directors.

 

Compensation of Directors

 

Although we anticipate compensating the members of our board of directors in the future at industry levels, our current director is not paid cash compensation for his service as director. The director may be reimbursed for certain expenses incurred in attending board of directors and committee meetings.

 

 

 

Board of Directors Meetings and Committees

 

Although various items were reviewed and approved by the Board of Directors via unanimous written consent during 2012 and 2013, the Board held no in-person meetings during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012 and 2013.

 

We do not have Audit or Compensation Committees of our board of directors. Because of the lack of financial resources available to us, we also do not have an “audit committee financial expert” as such term is described in Item 401 of Regulation S-K promulgated by the SEC.

 

Changes in Procedures by which Security Holders May Recommend Nominees to the Board

 

Any security holder who wishes to recommend a prospective director nominee should do so in writing by sending a letter to the Board of Directors. The letter should be signed, dated and include the name and address of the security holder making the recommendation, information to enable the Board to verify that the security holder was the holder of record or beneficial owner of the company’s securities as of the date of the letter, and the name, address and resumé of the potential nominee. Specific minimum qualifications for directors and director nominees which the Board believes must be met in order to be so considered include, but are not limited to, management experience, exemplary personal integrity and reputation, sound judgment, and sufficient time to devote to the discharge of his or her duties. There have been no changes to the procedures by which a security holder may recommend a nominee to the Board during our most recently ended fiscal year.

 

Executive Officers

 

James P. Foran is our sole executive officer, serving as our Chief Executive Officer and Secretary, as well as our principal accounting and financial officer. Further information pertaining Mr. Foran’s business background and experience is contained in the section above marked DIRECTORS, EXECUTIVE OFFICERS AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

 

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

 

We are required to identify each person who was an officer, director or beneficial owner of more than 10% of our registered equity securities during our most recent fiscal year and who failed to file on a timely basis reports required by Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

 

For the 2013 fiscal year we are unaware of any officer, director or beneficial owner of more that 10% of our registered equity securities who failed to file reports on a timely basis in accordance with Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

 

Code of Ethics

 

The Company expects that its Officers and Directors will maintain appropriate standards of honesty and ethical conduct in connection with the performance of their duties on behalf of the Company. In recognition of this expectation, the Company has adopted a Code of Ethics. The purpose of this Code of Ethics is to codify standards the Company believes are reasonably necessary to deter wrongdoing and to promote honest and ethical conduct, including the ethical handling of actual or apparent conflicts of interest between personal and professional relationships and full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that the Company files with, or submits to, the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”), or other regulatory bodies and in other public communications made by the Company.  

 

 

 

ITEM 11. EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

 

The following table summarizes the total compensation for the two fiscal years ended December 31, 2012 and 2013 of each person who served as our principal executive officer or principal financial and accounting officer collectively, (the “Named Executive Officers”) including any other executive officer who received more than $100,000 in annual compensation from the Company. We did not award cash bonuses, stock awards, stock options or non-equity incentive plan compensation to any Named Executive Officer during the two years ended December 31, 2012 and 2013, thus these items are omitted from the table below:

Outstanding Equity Awards at Fiscal Year-End

 

Our Named Executive Officer did not have any unexercised options or stock awards that have not vested outstanding at the end of our last fiscal year. Other than as noted above, we did not grant any equity awards to our Named Executive Officers or directors during 2012 or 2013.

 

ITEM 12. SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS.

 

The following table sets forth the beneficial ownership of each of our directors and executive officers, and each person known to us to beneficially own 5% or more of the outstanding shares of our common stock, and our executive officers and directors as a group, as of March 27, 2014. Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with the rules of the SEC and includes voting or investment power with respect to the securities. Unless otherwise indicated, we believe that each beneficial owner set forth in the table has sole voting and investment power and has the same address as us. Our address is 9864 E Grand River, Ste 110-301, Brighton, Michigan 48116. As of March 27, 2014, we had 137,035,345 shares of common stock outstanding. Each of our shares of common stock holds one vote. The following table describes the ownership of our voting securities (i) by each of our officers and directors, (ii) all of our officers and directors as a group, and (iii) each person known to us to own beneficially more than 5% of our common stock or any shares of our preferred stock.

(2)     The number of shares of common stock beneficially owned by any shareholder is determined by the sum of (i) all shares of common stock held directly or indirectly by such shareholder, and (ii) shares of common stock subject to options, warrants and/or conversion rights deemed beneficially owned by the shareholder that are currently exercisable or exercisable within 60 days.

 

(3)     The calculation of percentage of beneficial ownership is based upon: (i) 137,035,345 shares of common stock outstanding as of March 27, 2014, and (ii) shares of common stock subject to options, warrants and/or conversion rights deemed beneficially held by the shareholder that are currently exercisable or exercisable within 60 days. The percentage ownership of any shareholder is determined by assuming that the shareholder has exercised all options, warrants, and conversion rights to obtain additional securities, and that no other shareholder has exercised such rights. Except as otherwise indicated below, the persons and entity named in the table have sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares of common stock and voting rights shown as beneficially owned by them, subject to applicable community property laws.

DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK

 

The following description of our capital stock is based on relevant portions of our Articles of Incorporation (also sometimes referred to as our “charter”) and Bylaws. This summary may not contain all of the information that is important to you, and we refer you to our Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws for a more detailed description of the provisions summarized below.

 

JPX Global was organized as a corporation under the laws of the State of Nevada on December 18, 2008. Our authorized capital stock consists of 500,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share and 40,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.001 per share. As of December 31, 2013, there were approximately 29 record holders of our common stock. There are no outstanding other options or warrants to purchase our stock.

 

Our charter provides that our board of directors may not amend our Articles of Incorporation without approval of our shareholders, including holders of our preferred shares. A decrease or increase in the number of shares of capital stock which we may issue would require an amendment of our charter.

 

At December 31, 2013, we had 31,975,000 shares of common stock outstanding and 0 shares of preferred stock outstanding.

 

Common Stock

 

Our charter authorizes us to issue up to 500,000,000 shares of common stock. All shares of our common stock have equal rights as to earnings, assets, dividends and voting privileges. If and when we issue shares of common stock to stockholders, such shares will be duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable. Distributions may be paid to the holders of our common stock if, as and when authorized by our board of directors and declared by us out of assets legally available therefore. Shares of our common stock have no preemptive, conversion or redemption rights and are freely transferable, except where their transfer is restricted by federal and state securities laws or by contract. In the event of our liquidation, dissolution or winding up, each share of our common stock would be entitled to share ratably in all of our assets that are legally available for distribution after we pay all debts and other liabilities and subject to any preferential rights of holders of our preferred stock, if any preferred stock is outstanding at such time. Each share of our common stock is entitled to one vote on all matters submitted to a vote of stockholders, including the election of directors.

 

 

 

Preferred Stock

 

Our charter authorizes us to issue up to 40,000,000 shares of preferred stock. We have designated 1,000 of the Company’s authorized 40,000,000 shares of preferred stock as Series A Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share, and 10,000,000 of the Company’s authorized 40,000,000 shares of preferred stock as Series B Preferred Stock, par value $0.001 per share.

 

·Series A Preferred Stock. The Series A Preferred Stock preferred stock carries no dividend, distribution, liquidation or conversion rights, each share of series A preferred stock carries one hundred thousand (100,000) votes, and holders of our preferred stock are able to vote together with our common stockholders on all matters upon which common stockholders may vote. Consequently, the holder of our preferred stock is able to unilaterally control the election of our board of directors and, ultimately, the direction of our Company. On December 31, 2013, -0- shares of our Series A Preferred Stock were issued and outstanding. However, on January 9, 2014, the Company issued 1,000 shares of its Preferred Stock classified as Series “A” Preferred Stock.

 

·Series B Preferred Stock. The Series B Preferred Stock is convertible into 10 shares of common stock and is entitled to vote ratably together with holders of the Company’s common stock on all matters upon which common stockholders may vote. On December 31, 2013, -0- shares of our Series B Preferred Stock were issued and outstanding. However, on February 5, 2014, as a result of the Acquisition of Scorpex (See Item 1 above), the Company issued 10,000,000 shares of its Series B Preferred Stock.

 

Limitation of Liability of Directors and Officers; Indemnification and Advance of Expenses

 

Pursuant to our charter and under the Nevada Revised Statutes (hereafter, the “NRS”), our directors are not liable to us or our stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty, except for liability in connection with a breach of duty of loyalty, for acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law, for authorization of illegal dividend payments or stock redemptions under Nevada law or any transaction from which a director has derived an improper personal benefit. Our charter provides that we are authorized to provide indemnification of (and advancement of expenses) to our directors, officers, employees and agents (and any other persons to which applicable law permits us to provide indemnification) through Bylaw provisions, agreements with such persons, vote of stockholders or disinterested directors, or otherwise, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law.

 

We may enter into indemnification agreements with certain of our current directors and officers. The indemnification agreement indemnifies the indemnitee to the fullest extent permitted by law, including against third-party claims and claims by or in right of the Company or any subsidiary or majority-owned partnership of the Company by reason of that person (including the advancement of expenses subject to certain conditions) (a) being a director, officer employee or agent of the Company, or of any subsidiary or majority-owned partnership of the Company or (b) serving at our request as a director, officer, employee or agent of another entity. If appropriate, we are entitled to assume the defense of the claim with counsel selected by us and approved by the indemnitee (which approval may not be unreasonably withheld). Separate counsel employed by the indemnitee will be at his or her own expense unless (1) the employment of separate counsel has been previously authorized by us, (2) the indemnitee reasonably concludes there may be a conflict of interest or (3) we have not, in fact, employed counsel to assume the defense of such claim.

 

Disclosure of Commission Position on Indemnification for Securities Act Liabilities

 

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to our directors, officers and controlling persons pursuant to the provisions above, or otherwise, we have been advised that in the opinion of the SEC such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act, and is, therefore, unenforceable.

 

In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities, other than the payment by us of expenses incurred or paid by one of our directors, officers, or controlling persons in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding, is asserted by one of our directors, officers, or controlling persons in connection with the securities being registered, we will, unless in the opinion of our counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act, and we will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue

 

 

 

Provisions of the NRS and Our Charter and Bylaws

Our charter and bylaws provide that our board of directors will have the exclusive power to make, alter, amend or repeal any provision of our bylaws.
