PART I


ITEM 1.   BUSINESS


GENERAL


DigitalTown owns and operates a nationwide social networking site of hyper-local on-line communities built around their domain names and the schools and communities they represent.


In March 2013, DigitalTown filed a trademark application with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for the service mark “America’s Prodigy”.  The Company is the holder of Americasprodigy.com and various other prodigy related domain names.  The application lists its goods and services as entertainment services, namely, conducting contests.


In February 2013, public registration began for TrustedWebmail, DigitalTown’s webmail platform.  TrustedWebmail features advanced monitoring controls for schools, athletic directors, youth leagues and business and will provide an easy method for monitoring emails sent and received. DigitalTown plans to launch a second tool called Trusted Cell Phone, which is a predator-averse parental/coach/teacher monitoring application which allows you to monitor all texts (SMS or MMS), phone calls, or images into or out of any android based cellular phone under your control.


On July 31, 2012, DigitalTown and the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association ("NIAAA") jointly announced that TrustedWebmail will be the official recommended email provider of the NIAAA for athletic administrators, coaches and athletes nationwide.

 

On May 23, 2012, DigitalTown and The Active Network, Inc. (“Active”) completed a Handoff Agreement of the technology assets supporting DigitalTown’s school spirit websites and its related social networking sites. The Handoff Agreement indicates that both DigitalTown and Active agreed to mutually terminate the Strategic Alliance Agreement, initially entered between the parties on September 29, 2009, and subsequently re-entered between the parties on September 30, 2011.


On May 14, 2012, DigitalTown Limited (“DTL”) was incorporated under Chapter 32 of the Laws of Hong Kong. DTL is 100% owned by TSN.


On May 3, 2012, DigitalTown created a new, wholly-owned subsidiary, The School Network, Inc. (“TSN”), under the laws of the State of Nevada.


On April 4, 2012, the Company executed a Domain Sale Agreement under which it agreed to sell one of the domain names the Company currently owns. The Company received $175,000 cash in consideration of the transfer of the domain name.

EMPLOYEES


As of February 28, 2014, DigitalTown, Inc. has three employees.  The Company’s employees are not represented by a union.  The Company knows of no adverse labor issues with any employee.


ITEM 1A.  RISK FACTORS


We are subject to various risks that may materially harm our business, financial condition and results of operations.  You should carefully consider the risks and uncertainties described below and the other information in this filing before deciding to purchase our common stock.  If any of these risks or uncertainties actually occurs, our business, financial condition or operating results could be materially harmed.  In that case, the trading price of our common stock could decline and you could lose all or part of your investment.


RISKS RELATED TO OUR BUSINESS


We have a history of losses and the report of our independent accountants issued in connection with the audit of our financial statements contained a qualification raising a substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

We incurred net losses $2,717,256 and $1,403,327 for the years ended February 28, 2014 and 2013, respectively, and had an accumulated deficit of $28,195,262 at February 28, 2014. As a result of these conditions, the report of our independent accountants issued in connection with the audit of our financial statements as of and for our fiscal years ended February 28, 2014 and 2013 contained a qualification raising a substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. We can provide no assurance regarding when, if ever, we will become profitable. As a result, we may continue to generate losses for the foreseeable future and in the extreme case, discontinue operations.

We may not be able to collect on our stock subscription receivables or raise capital through the sale of our common stock as needed to fund our operations.


At February 28, 2014, the Company had stock subscription receivables of $641,395 and for the year ended February 28, 2014, the Company received stock subscription payments of $337,459.


We believe our current cash reserves, the amounts we expect to collect on our outstanding stock subscription receivables, proceeds from the sale of domain names and proceeds from the sale of our common stock should be sufficient to enable us to operate for the next 12 months. In the event that we are unable to collect on our outstanding stock subscription receivables as needed or raise capital through the sale of our common stock and domain names as needed, we would be forced to reduce operating expenses and/or cease operations altogether.


No assurances can be given that we will be successful in reaching or maintaining profitable operations.  Our current monthly cash operating expenses are approximately $62,000 per month.





2




We may need to raise additional capital to finance operations.


Funding of our operations has relied almost entirely on the collection of outstanding subscription receivables and proceeds from the sale of our common stock.  We will need to raise additional capital to fund our anticipated operating expenses and execute our business plan.  We cannot be assured that financing will be available or on favorable terms.  The sale of our common stock to raise capital may cause dilution to our existing stockholders.  Our inability to obtain adequate financing will result in the need to curtail business operations.  Any of these events would be materially harmful to our business and may result in a lower stock price.


Our common stock may be affected by limited trading volume and may fluctuate significantly.


There has been a limited public market for our common stock and there can be no assurance that an active trading market for our common stock will develop.  As a result, this could adversely affect our stockholders' ability to sell our common stock in short time periods, or possibly at all.  Our common stock has experienced, and is likely to experience in the future, significant price and volume fluctuations that could adversely affect the market price of our common stock without regard to our operating performance.  In addition, we believe that factors such as quarterly fluctuations in our financial results and changes in the overall economy or the condition of the financial markets could cause the price of our common stock to fluctuate substantially.


Our common stock is traded on the OTC Markets “OTCQB”, which may make it more difficult for investors to resell their shares due to suitability requirements.


Our common stock is currently traded on the OTC Markets “OTCQB”. Broker-dealers often decline to trade in “OTCQB” stocks given that the market for such securities is often limited, the stocks are more volatile, and the risks to investors are greater.  These factors may reduce the potential market for our common stock by reducing the number of potential investors.  This may make it more difficult for investors in our common stock to sell shares to third parties or to otherwise dispose of them.  This could cause our stock price to decline.  


We could fail to retain or attract key personnel.


Our future success depends, in significant part, on the continued services of Linda Thrasher our Chief Executive Officer and Richard Pomije, our Chairman and Secretary/Treasurer. We cannot assure you that we would be able to find appropriate replacements for them or any other key personnel.  Any loss or interruption of our key personnel's services could adversely affect our ability to develop our business plan.  We do not have an employment agreement with Mr. Pomije nor do we presently maintain a key-man life insurance policy on him.




We could fail to renew our domain names on a timely basis.


Our future success depends, in significant part, on the continued renewal of our domain names on a timely basis.  In order to retain the rights to our domain names, they have to be renewed on an annual basis by paying the annual renewal fee within a specified time period.  



3




If the domain names are not renewed within the specified time period, they become available to the general public and the rights could be obtained by any outside third party if they paid the annual renewal fee.  Any loss of our domain name rights could adversely affect our ability to execute our business plan.  The Company does have controls and procedures in place to ensure that all domain names are renewed in a timely manner.


We need to raise additional capital to renew our domain names on a timely basis.


Funding of our domain name renewals has relied almost entirely on the collection of outstanding subscription receivables and proceeds from the sale of our common stock.  We will need to raise additional capital in order to renew our domain names on a timely basis.  We cannot be assured that financing will be available or on favorable terms.  The sale of our common stock to raise capital may cause dilution to our existing stockholders.  Our inability to obtain adequate financing will result in the need to curtail domain name renewals which would be materially harmful to our business and may result in a lower stock price.


Minnesota law and our charter may inhibit a takeover of our company that stockholders may consider favorable.


Provisions of Minnesota law, such as its business combination statute, may have the effect of delaying, deferring or preventing a change in control of our Company.  As a result, these provisions could limit the price some investors might be willing to pay in the future for shares of our common stock.


Our officers and directors have the ability to exercise significant influence over matters submitted for stockholder approval and their interests may differ from other stockholders.


Our executive officers and directors, in the aggregate have the ability to appoint members to the Board of Directors.  Accordingly, our directors and executive officers, whether acting alone or together, may have significant influence in determining the outcome of any corporate transaction or other matter submitted to our Board for approval, including issuing common and preferred stock, and appointing officers. This influence could have a material impact on mergers, acquisitions, consolidations, the sale of all or substantially all of our assets and the power to prevent or cause a change in control.  The interests of these board members may differ from the interests of the other stockholders.


Our shares may be defined as "penny stock", the rules imposed on the sale of the shares may affect your ability to resell any shares you may purchase, if at all.


Shares of our common stock may be defined as a “penny stock” under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934 and rules of the SEC.  The Exchange Act and such penny stock rules generally impose additional sales practice and disclosure requirements on broker-dealers who sell our securities to persons other than certain accredited investors who are, generally, institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000 or individuals with net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000, or $300,000 jointly with spouse, or in transactions not recommended by the broker-dealer.  For transactions covered by the penny stock rules, a broker-dealer must make a suitability determination for each purchaser and receive the purchaser's written agreement prior to the sale.  In addition, the broker-dealer must make certain mandated disclosures in penny stock transactions, including the actual sale or purchase price and actual bid and offer quotations, the compensation to be received by the



4




broker-dealer and certain associated persons, and deliver certain disclosures required by the Commission.  Consequently, the penny stock rules may affect the ability of broker-dealers to make a market in or trade our common stock and may also affect your ability to resell any shares you may purchase in the public markets.


Market for penny stock has suffered in recent years from patterns of fraud and abuse


Stockholders should be aware that, according to SEC Release No. 34-29093, the market for penny stocks has suffered in recent years from patterns of fraud and abuse.  Such patterns include:


·

Control of the market for the security by one or a few broker-dealers that are often related to the promoter or issuer;

·

Manipulation of prices through prearranged matching of purchases and sales and false and misleading press releases;

·

Boiler room practices involving high-pressure sales tactics and unrealistic price projections by inexperienced salespersons;

·

Excessive and undisclosed bid-ask differential and markups by selling broker-dealers; and,

·

The wholesale dumping of the same securities by promoters and broker-dealers after prices have been manipulated to a desired level, along with the resulting inevitable collapse of those prices creating consequential investor losses.


Our management is aware of the abuses that have occurred historically in the penny stock market.  Although we do not expect to be in a position to dictate the behavior of the market or of broker-dealers who participate in the market, management will strive within the confines of practical limitations to prevent the described patterns from being established with respect to our securities.  The occurrence of these patterns or practices could increase the volatility of our share price.


Existing stockholders may experience significant dilution from the sale of our common stock.


The perceived risk of dilution may cause our stockholders to sell their shares, which may cause a decline in the price of our common stock.  Moreover, the perceived risk of dilution and the resulting downward pressure on our stock price could encourage investors to engage in short sales of our common stock.  By increasing the number of shares offered for sale, material amounts of short selling could further contribute to progressive price declines in our common stock.  



Risk Factors Related to Our Securities.


Unless an active trading market develops for our securities, investors may not be able to sell their shares.


Although, we are a reporting company and our common shares are quoted on the OTC Markets “OTCQB” under the symbol “DGTW”, there is not currently an active trading market for our common stock and an active trading market may never develop or, if it does develop, may not be maintained.  Failure to develop or maintain an active trading market will



5




have a generally negative effect on the price of our common stock, and you may be unable to sell your common stock or any attempted sale of such common stock may have the effect of lowering the market price and therefore your investment could be a partial or complete loss.


Since our common stock is thinly traded it is more susceptible to extreme rises or declines in price, and you may not be able to sell your shares at or above the price paid.


Since our common stock is thinly traded its trading price is likely to be highly volatile and could be subject to extreme fluctuations in response to various factors, many of which are beyond our control, including (but not necessarily limited to):



 

 

·

the trading volume of our shares;

 

 

·

the number of securities analysts, market-makers and brokers following our common stock;

 

 

·

changes in, or failure to achieve, financial estimates by securities analysts;

 

 

·

new products or services introduced or announced by us or our competitors;

 

 

·

actual or anticipated variations in quarterly operating results;

 

 

·

general conditions or trends in our business industries;

 

 

·

announcements by us of significant contracts, acquisitions, strategic partnerships, joint ventures or capital commitments;

 

 

·

additions or departures of key personnel;

 

 

·

sales of our common stock; and

 

 

·

general stock market price and volume fluctuations of publicly-traded, and particularly microcap, companies.


Investors may have difficulty reselling shares of our common stock, either at or above the price they paid for our stock, or even at fair market value.  The stock markets often experience significant price and volume changes that are not related to the operating performance of individual companies, and because our common stock is thinly traded it is particularly susceptible to such changes.  These broad market changes may cause the market price of our common stock to decline regardless of how well we perform as a company.  In addition, there is a history of securities class action litigation following periods of volatility in the market price of a company’s securities.  Although there is no such litigation currently pending or threatened against the Company, such a suit against us could result in the incursion of substantial legal fees, potential liabilities and the diversion of management’s attention and resources from our business.  Moreover and as previously noted, our shares are currently traded on the OTC Market “OTCQB” and, further, are subject to the penny stock regulations.  Price fluctuations in such shares are particularly volatile and subject to manipulation by market-makers, short-sellers and option traders.



ITEM 2.  PROPERTIES


The Company leases from Jeff Mills, a Director and Stockholder of the Company, approximately 2,650 square feet of space used for offices at 11974 Portland Avenue, Burnsville, Minnesota. The terms of the lease call for monthly rent of $2,650 for the period of December 16, 2011 to December 15, 2012, $2,750 for the period of December 16, 2012 to December 15, 2013 and $2,850 for the period of December 16, 2013 to December 15, 2014

with the option to renew the lease for an additional term of one year at a monthly rent of $3,500. The future rent obligations of this lease at February 28, 2014 total $26,650.


ITEM 3.  LEGAL PROCEEDINGS


The Company is exposed to asserted and unasserted claims encountered in the normal course of business. In the opinion of management, the resolutions of these matters are not expected to have a material adverse effect on the Company's financial position or results of operations.

Operating expenses for the year ended February 28, 2014, increased by $1,049,133 to $2,211,631 compared to a year ago. Stock compensation expense, included in selling, general and administration expenses, was $703,649 for the year ended February 28, 2014, compared to $179,339 for the year ended February 28, 2013, an increase of $524,310 compared to a year ago.  Impairment expense was $919,323 during the year ended February 28, 2014, compared to $0 for the prior year. Excluding non-cash impairment expense and stock compensation expense for the two comparable periods, operating expenses were $588,659 for the current period, compared to $983,159 for the year ended February 28, 2013.  The decrease of $394,500 for the two comparable periods is primarily due to a decrease of $179,964 in legal and professional fees, a decrease in payroll expense of $164,590, a decrease in employee benefits of $23,818, a decrease in travel and entertainment expense of $13,102 and an $8,278 decrease in supplies expense.


The Company’s overall net loss for the current year increased by $1,313,929 to $2,717,256.  The increase was mainly due to an impairment charge of $919,323 to Intangible Assets and a loss of $164,324 on common stock issued for conversion of debt.


LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES


The Company’s cash position at February 28, 2014, was $50,589, an increase of $14,583 from $36,006 at February 28, 2013.  During the year ended February 28, 2014, net cash used in operating activities was $517,044 compared to cash used of $764,872 for the comparable period.  When comparing the two periods, the decrease in cash used in operating activities of $247,828 for the year ended February 28, 2014 is primarily due to the conversion of accounts payable to common shares of $203,351 and a non-cash capital contribution of $100,000 to deferred officer compensation.


Net cash used in investing activities for the year ended February 28, 2014, was $3,999, which consisted of $3,486 used for website development costs and $513 used for the purchase of additional domain names as compared to net cash provided from investing activities of $134,174 for the comparable period which consisted of proceeds from the sale of a domain name of $175,000 offset by $11,223 used for website development costs, $4,526 used for



11




purchases of property and equipment and $25,077 used for the purchase of additional domain names.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities for the year ended February 28, 2014, was $535,626, which consisted of payments received on stockholder subscription receivables of $337,459, proceeds from third party note payable of $150,000 and proceeds from the issuance of common stock of $50,000 offset by principal payments of $1,833 on a loan from a director/stockholder loan.  For the comparable period ended February 28, 2013, the Company received net cash provided by financing activities of $444,800 which consisted of payments received on stockholder subscription receivables of $320,800 and proceeds from the issuance of common stock of $75,000 and proceeds of $49,000 from a director/stockholder loan.


Monthly cash operating expenses for the year ended February 28, 2014, were approximately $62,000 per month. Based on current projections, the Company’s monthly cash operating expenses going forward should remain at approximately $62,000 per month, which includes the annual renewal cost of the existing domain names of approximately $197,000 and deferred wages of approximately $214,000. In addition to the normal monthly operating expenses, the Company’s committed cash requirements for the twelve months ending February 28, 2015, include the balance due of $30,000 for expenses pertaining to the Company’s Strategic Partnership Agreement with the NIAAA and $22,500 pertaining to a software development maintenance agreement. From March 1, 2014 to July 11, 2014, the Company has received cash proceeds of approximately $10,000 from stock subscription receivables.


As of February 28, 2014, the Company has the following stock subscription agreements outstanding:



2007 Agreements


On October 5, 2007, the Company received subscriptions for 1,300,000 restricted common shares at $2.50 per share (total value of $3,250,000).  Significant terms of the original subscription agreement are as follows:


·

The price per share of $2.50 was based on the closing price on October 4, 2007.

·

At 24 months, 1/36 payments are due monthly.

·

The Company, at its option, may call up to 1/12 of the gross receivable per month if the preceding 30 day average trading price is at or above $7.00 a share with minimum trading volume of 5,000 shares per day.

·

If the purchaser sells these common shares, the purchaser shall be entitled to an amount equal to 200% of the original purchase price of each share and the Company shall be entitled to 50% of any additional net sales proceeds from the stock sale.


On February 25, 2010, due to the economic downturn and the market value of the Company’s stock, which was trading below $2.50 per share, the Company amended the pricing terms of the subscription agreements received by the Company on October 5, 2007.  The amendment changed the following significant terms of the subscription agreement:




12




The parties agree that the initial pricing terms in the Confidential Binding Term Sheet dated October 5, 2007, of the Agreement will be amended to state as follows:


1.

The Subscriber offers to purchase shares of the Company for $0.75 per share.  After the price adjustment, the revised total value of this subscription agreement is $975,000.


The following other provisions of the initial pricing and final pricing terms in the Confidential Binding Term Sheet dated October 5, 2007, of the Agreement will be deleted, and are not enforceable by either party:


·

Beginning October 5, 2009, and 1/36 payments are due each month thereafter on the 5th of every month.

·

The Company at its option may call up to 1/12 of the (gross) receivable note per month if the preceding 30 day average trading price is at or above $7.00 a share.  Minimum trading Volume must be 5,000 shares a day.

·

As total consideration for the purchase and sale of the Company’s stock, purchaser shall ultimately pay to the Company the following amount (the “Purchase Price”):

A.

Purchaser shall first be entitled to an amount equal to 200% of the face amount of each share.

B.

After the purchaser receives the amount in A above, the Company shall be entitled to 50% of any additional net sales proceeds of the stock.  Net sales proceeds shall mean the gross proceeds received from the sale of the stock, less reasonable brokerage commissions.

C.

Final adjusted net sales proceeds will be wired to the Company within 7 days from the final settlement of the sale of stock sold.


The outstanding balance owed on the revised 2007 subscription agreements at February 28, 2014, is $341,395.



2010 Agreement


Material terms of the subscription agreement received by the Company on June 22, 2010, for 400,000 restricted common shares at $0.75 per share (total value of $300,000) are as follows:

·

Payment is due in full in 60 months.

·

At 24 months, the Company can demand at its option, monthly 1/36 payments on the subscription agreement.

·

The Company has the option to charge simple annual interest of up to 4.0%.

·

The Company will provide downside protection of up to 30% of the stock price upon conversion.


The outstanding balance owed on the 2010 subscription agreement at February 28, 2014, is $300,000.

Summary


As of February 28, 2014, the Company had stock subscription receivables of $641,395 and for the twelve months ended February 28, 2014, the Company received stock subscription payments of $337,459.


The following table summarizes the stock subscription receivable, by quarter, at February 28, 2014:

In summary, we believe our current cash reserves, the amounts we expect to collect on our outstanding stock subscription receivables and future proceeds from the issuance of our common stock and the sale of existing domain names should be sufficient to enable us to operate for the next 12 months.  In the event that we are unable to collect our stock subscription receivables as needed or raise additional capital through the sale of our common stock or sell existing domain names on acceptable terms, we would be forced to further reduce operating expenses and/or cease operations altogether.

We do not have any off balance sheet arrangements.


Critical Accounting Policies


The discussion and analysis of DigitalTown, Inc.’s financial condition and results of operations are based on our audited financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the U.S. The preparation of these financial statements requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities and expenses and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. Management reviews its estimates on an ongoing basis. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. While DigitalTown Inc.’s significant accounting policies are described in more detail in Note 1 to its financial statements, management believes the following accounting policies to be critical to the judgments and estimates used in the preparation of its financial statements:





14




Intangible Assets – Domain Names/Website Development Costs


Domain name costs are accounted for in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC 350-30) guidance pertaining to Intangibles-Goodwill and Other, Website Development Costs.  Certain modules and components of the Company’s overall website development are ready for their intended use and the Company’s resulting websites are currently operational. Accordingly, the annual domain name renewal fees are currently being amortized over one year and the purchase of any new domain names are capitalized.  Previously, during the infrastructure development stage of its websites, the Company capitalized the purchase of new domain names and the annual domain name renewal fees. Since the ownership of each domain name can be renewed for a nominal renewal fee each year prior to their expiration date, the useful lives of the domain names are deemed to be indefinite and no amortization of the capitalized costs for the domain names will be recorded.  


Website development costs are accounted for in accordance with the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (ASC 350-50) guidance pertaining to Intangibles-Goodwill and Other, Internal-Use Software which requires that all internal and external costs incurred to develop the internal-use software necessary to operate the websites be capitalized.  The guidance further states, amortization should begin when an individual module or component of the overall internal-use software is ready for its intended use.  The cost of such module or component will be amortized on a straight-line basis over its estimated useful life, as determined by the Company, after taking into account the effects of obsolescence, technology, competition and other economic factors.  


Impairment of Long-Lived Assets


Long-lived assets, such as property and equipment and intangible assets – domain names/website development costs are reviewed for impairment whenever changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.  Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated future cash flows, an impairment charge is recognized in the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset.  


Stock-Based Compensation


The Company recognizes the cost of stock-based compensation plans and awards in operations on a straight-line basis over the respective vesting period of the awards.  The Company measures and recognizes compensation expense for all stock-based payment awards made to employees and directors. The compensation expense for the Company's stock-based payments is based on estimated fair values at the time of the grant.

 

The Company estimates the fair value of stock-based payment awards on the date of grant using an option pricing model. These option pricing models involve a number of assumptions, including the expected lives of stock options, the volatility of the public market price for the Company's common stock and interest rates. The Company is



15




using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. Stock-based compensation expense recognized during the period is based on the value of the portion of stock-based payment awards that are ultimately expected to vest.

 



Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements


In July 2013, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2013-11: Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit When a Net Operating Loss Carry-forward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carry-forward Exists. The new guidance requires that unrecognized tax benefits be presented on a net basis with the deferred tax assets for such carry-forwards. This new guidance is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2013. We do not expect the adoption of the new provisions to have a material impact on our financial condition or results of operations.


In February 2013, FASB issued ASU No. 2013-02, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income, to improve the transparency of reporting these reclassifications. Other comprehensive income includes gains and losses that are initially excluded from net income for an accounting period. Those gains and losses are later reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income into net income. The amendments in the ASU do not change the current requirements for reporting net income or other comprehensive income in financial statements. All of the information that this ASU requires already is required to be disclosed elsewhere in the financial statements under U.S. GAAP. The new amendments will require an organization to:


-Present (either on the face of the statement where net income is presented or in the notes) the effects on the line items of net income of significant amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income - but only if the item reclassified is required under U.S. GAAP to be reclassified to net income in its entirety in the same reporting period; and


-Cross-reference to other disclosures currently required under U.S. GAAP for other reclassification items (that are not required under U.S. GAAP) to be reclassified directly to net income in their entirety in the same reporting period. This would be the case when a portion of the amount reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income is initially transferred to a balance sheet account (e.g., inventory for pension-related amounts) instead of directly to income or expense.


The amendments apply to all public and private companies that report items of other comprehensive income. Public companies are required to comply with these amendments for all reporting periods (interim and annual). The amendments are effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2012, for public companies. Early adoption is permitted. The adoption of ASU No. 2013-02 did not have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations.


In January 2013, the FASB issued ASU No. 2013-01, Balance Sheet (Topic 210): Clarifying the Scope of Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities, which clarifies which instruments and transactions are subject to the offsetting disclosure requirements originally established by ASU 2011-11. The new ASU addresses preparer concerns that the scope of the



16




disclosure requirements under ASU 2011-11 was overly broad and imposed unintended costs that were not commensurate with estimated benefits to financial statement users. In choosing to narrow the scope of the offsetting disclosures, the Board determined that it could make them more operable and cost effective for preparers while still giving financial statement users sufficient information to analyze the most significant presentation differences between financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and those prepared under IFRSs. Like ASU 2011-11, the amendments in this update will be effective for fiscal periods beginning on, or after January 1, 2013. The adoption of ASU 2013-01 did not have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations.


In October 2012, the FASB issued ASU 2012-04, “Technical Corrections and Improvements” in Accounting Standards Update No. 2012-04. The amendments in this update cover a wide range of Topics in the Accounting Standards Codification. These amendments include technical corrections and improvements to the Accounting Standards Codification and conforming amendments related to fair value measurements. The amendments in this update will be effective for fiscal periods beginning after December 15, 2012. The adoption of ASU 2012-04 is not expected to have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations.


In August 2012, the FASB issued ASU 2012-03, “Technical Amendments and Corrections to SEC Sections: Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin (SAB) No. 114, Technical Amendments Pursuant to SEC Release No. 33-9250, and Corrections Related to FASB Accounting Standards Update 2010-22 (SEC Update)” in Accounting Standards Update No. 2012-03. This update amends various SEC paragraphs pursuant to the issuance of SAB No. 114. The adoption of ASU 2012-03 is not expected to have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations.


In July 2012, the FASB issued ASU 2012-02, “Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment” in Accounting Standards Update No. 2012-02. This update amends ASU 2011-08,Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment and permits an entity first to assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that an indefinite-lived intangible asset is impaired as a basis for determining whether it is necessary to perform the quantitative impairment test in accordance with Subtopic 350-30, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other - General Intangibles Other than Goodwill. The amendments are effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012. Early adoption is permitted, including for annual and interim impairment tests performed as of a date before July 27, 2012, if a public entity’s financial statements for the most recent annual or interim period have not yet been issued or, for nonpublic entities, have not yet been made available for issuance. The adoption of ASU 2012-02 is not expected to have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations.

ITEM 7A.  QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.


The market risk inherent in the Company’s financial statements and in its financial position represents the potential loss arising from adverse changes in interest rates.  This risk is low as the Company has very limited debt and has no third-party debt.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM


To the Board of Directors

DigitalTown, Inc.


We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of DigitalTown, Inc. (the “Company”) as of February 28, 2014 and 2013, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders' equity (deficit) and cash flows for the years then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.


We conducted our audits in accordance with 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 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 includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.


In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of DigitalTown, Inc. as of February 28, 2014 and 2013, and the results of its operations and cash flows for the for the periods described above, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.


The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  The Company has a working capital deficit, recurring losses, and negative cash flows from operations. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of asset carrying amounts or the amount and classification of liabilities that may result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. See note 2 to the consolidated financial statements for further information regarding this uncertainty.

DigitalTown, Inc.


NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Years Ended February 28, 2014 and February 28, 2013



Note 1. Nature of Business and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies:


Nature of Business

The Company was founded in 1982 under the laws of the State of Minnesota as Command Small Computer Learning Center, Inc., a computer training company and operated under several different names in the computer hardware and training sector. In 2005, the Company began acquiring domain names.  On March 1, 2007, the Company changed its name to DigitalTown, Inc. and began developing a business plan to develop their platform and monetize their domain names. The Company’s headquarters are located at 11974 Portland Avenue, Burnsville, MN 55337, and its telephone and facsimile numbers are (952) 890-2362 and (952) 890-7451, respectively. The Company's Internet address is www.digitaltown.com.   The company is traded in the over-the- counter market under the ticker DGTW.

Principles of Consolidation


The Company files consolidated financial statements that include its wholly-owned subsidiaries Tiger Media and The School Network. All material intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.


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 reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.


Revenue Recognition


The Company recognizes revenue when the following four criteria have been met:

·

Persuasive evidence that an agreement exists

·

Delivery has occurred

·

The price is fixed and determinable

·

Collectability is reasonably assured


The Company recognizes revenue from the sale of display advertising appearing on specific pages of individual spirit sites within DigitalTown’s network.  Display advertising is sold by the Company directly to local merchants and placed by the Company on specific pages of individual spirit sites targeted by the local merchant.  The terms of these sales are for a fixed monthly amount for a period ranging from three months to one year.  The Company has also entered into certain third party agreements which allow display advertising to be placed on individual spirit sites within DigitalTown’s network.  Per these agreements, the Company receives commissions based on a percentage of the per click or per-impression revenue generated by these ads.  The Company recognizes these commissions received as revenue.

DigitalTown, Inc.


NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Years Ended February 28, 2014 and February 28, 2013




Concentrations


During the year ended February 28, 2014, one customer accounted for 61% of revenues. During the year ended February 28, 2013, one customer accounted for 38% of revenues. At February 28, 2014, the Company had no accounts receivable and at February 28, 2013, one customer accounted for 100% of accounts receivable totaling $6,783.


Fair Value of Financial Instruments


Under FASB ASC 820-10-5, fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (an exit price). The standard outlines a valuation framework and creates a fair value hierarchy in order to increase the consistency and comparability of fair value measurements and the related disclosures. Under GAAP, certain assets and liabilities must be measured at fair value, and FASB ASC 820-10-50 details the disclosures that are required for items measured at fair value.


The Company does not have any financial instruments that must be measured under the new fair value standard. The Company’s financial assets and liabilities are measured using inputs from the three levels of the fair value hierarchy. The three levels are as follows:


Level 1 - Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access at the measurement date.


Level 2 - Inputs include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability (e.g., interest rates, yield curves, etc.), and inputs that are derived principally from or corroborated by observable market data by correlation or other means (market corroborated inputs).


Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that reflect our assumptions about the assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.


The following schedule summarizes the valuation of financial instruments at fair value on a non-recurring basis in the balance sheets as of February 28, 2014 and February 28, 2013:

There were no transfers of financial assets or liabilities between Level 1 and Level 2 inputs for the years ended February 28, 2014 and February 28, 2013.


Level 3 assets consist of intangible assets.  At February 28, 2014, the Company recorded an impairment charge of $919,323 for the full amount of their intangible assets.  No fair value adjustment was necessary for the year ended February 28, 2013.


Cash and Cash Equivalents


The Company considers all highly liquid investments with original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents.  As of February 28 2014 and 2013, the Company had no cash equivalents.


Cash Deposits in Excess of Federally Insured Limits


The Company maintains its cash in bank deposit accounts which, at times, may exceed federally insured limits. Accounts are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Company and currently have insurance coverage up to $250,000.  At February 28, 2014 and 2013, the Company had no uninsured cash balances.


Intangible Assets – Domain Names/Website Development Costs


Domain name costs are accounted for in accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) Accounting Standards Codification (ASC 350-50) guidance pertaining to Intangibles-Goodwill and Other, Website Development Costs.  Certain modules and components of the Company’s overall website development are ready for their intended use and the Company’s resulting websites are currently operational. Accordingly, the annual domain name renewal fees are currently being amortized over one year and the purchase of any new domain names are the only amounts being capitalized.  Previously, during the infrastructure development stage of its websites, the Company capitalized the purchase of new domain names and the annual domain name renewal fees. Additionally, since the ownership of each domain name can be renewed for a nominal renewal fee each year prior to their expiration date, the useful lives of the domain names are deemed to be indefinite and no amortization of the capitalized costs for the domain names will be recorded.  


Website development costs are accounted for in accordance with the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (ASC 350-50) guidance pertaining to Intangibles-Goodwill and Other, Internal-Use Software which requires that all internal and external costs incurred to develop the internal-use software necessary to operate the websites be capitalized.  The guidance further states, amortization should begin when an individual module or component of the overall internal-use software is ready for its intended use.  The



26




DigitalTown, Inc.


NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Years Ended February 28, 2014 and February 28, 2013



cost of such module or component will be amortized on a straight-line basis over its estimated useful life, as determined by the Company, after taking into account the effects of obsolescence, technology, competition and other economic factors.  The Company recorded $87,552 and $111,944 of amortization expense for the years ended February 28, 2014 and 2013, respectively.  See Note 4 for further information.


Impairment of Long-Lived Assets


Long-lived assets, such as property and equipment and intangible assets – domain names/website development costs are reviewed for impairment whenever changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.  Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated future cash flows, an impairment charge is recognized in the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset.  At February 28, 2014, the Company determined that a full impairment charge of $919,323 was necessary for the net carrying amount of its intangible assets.


Property and Equipment


Property and equipment are stated at cost and depreciated on a a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives, ranging from three to five years. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the shorter of the useful life or the term of the related lease. The Company recorded $7,311 and $12,938 of depreciation expense for the years ended February 28, 2014 and February 28, 2013, respectively.  Repairs and maintenance costs are expensed as incurred; major renewals and improvements are capitalized.  As items of property or equipment are sold or retired, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss is included in operating income.  See Note 3 for further information.


Income Taxes


Deferred tax assets (net of any valuation allowance) and liabilities resulting from temporary differences, net operating loss carry-forwards and tax credit carry-forwards are recorded using an asset-and-liability method.  Deferred taxes relating to temporary differences and loss carry-forwards are measured using the tax rate expected to be in effect when they are reversed or are realized.  Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be ultimately realized.  The Company has recorded a full valuation allowance against the net deferred tax asset due to the uncertainty of realizing the related future benefits.


The Company accounts for income taxes pursuant to Financial Accounting Standards Board guidance.  This guidance prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return.  For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more likely than not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities.  The Company’s adoption on March 1, 2009 of the provisions specifically related to uncertain tax positions resulted in no cumulative effect adjustment.  The Company believes its income tax filing positions and deductions will be sustained upon examination and, accordingly, no reserves or related accruals for interest and penalties have been recorded at February 28, 2014 and 2013.  In



27




DigitalTown, Inc.


NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Years Ended February 28, 2014 and February 28, 2013



accordance with the guidance, the Company has adopted a policy under which, if required to be recognized in the future, interest related to the underpayment of income taxes will be classified as a component of interest expense and any related penalties will be classified in operating expenses in the statements of operations.  The Company has three open years of tax returns subject to examination.


Stock-Based Compensation, including options and Warrants


The Company measures and recognizes compensation expense for all stock-based payment awards made to employees and directors on a straight-line basis over the respective vesting period of the awards.  The compensation expense for the Company's stock-based payments is based on estimated fair values at the time of the grant of the portion of stock-based payment awards that are ultimately expected to vest.


The Company estimates the fair value of stock-based payment awards on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. This option pricing model involves a number of assumptions, including the expected lives of stock options, the volatility of the public market price for the Company's common stock and interest rates.


Comprehensive Income (Loss)


Comprehensive income (loss) includes net income (loss) and items defined as other comprehensive income (loss). Items defined as other comprehensive income (loss) include such items as foreign currency translation adjustments and unrealized gains (losses) on certain marketable securities. For the years ended February 28, 2014 and 2013, the Company had no items defined as other comprehensive income (loss).


Advertising


Advertising costs are charged to operations when incurred.  The Company did not incur any advertising expense during the years ended February 28, 2014 and 2013.


Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In July 2013, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2013-11: Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit When a Net Operating Loss Carry-forward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carry-forward Exists. The new guidance requires that unrecognized tax benefits be presented on a net basis with the deferred tax assets for such carry-forwards. This new guidance is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2013. We do not expect the adoption of the new provisions to have a material impact on our financial condition or results of operations.

In February 2013, FASB issued ASU No. 2013-02, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income, to improve the transparency of reporting these reclassifications. Other comprehensive income includes gains and losses that are initially excluded from net income for an accounting period. Those gains and losses are later reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income into net income. The amendments in the ASU do not change


28




DigitalTown, Inc.


NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Years Ended February 28, 2014 and February 28, 2013



the current requirements for reporting net income or other comprehensive income in financial statements. All of the information that this ASU requires already is required to be disclosed elsewhere in the financial statements under U.S. GAAP. The new amendments will require an organization to:

-Present (either on the face of the statement where net income is presented or in the notes) the effects on the line items of net income of significant amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income - but only if the item reclassified is required under U.S. GAAP to be reclassified to net income in its entirety in the same reporting period; and

-Cross-reference to other disclosures currently required under U.S. GAAP for other reclassification items (that are not required under U.S. GAAP) to be reclassified directly to net income in their entirety in the same reporting period. This would be the case when a portion of the amount reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income is initially transferred to a balance sheet account (e.g., inventory for pension-related amounts) instead of directly to income or expense.

The amendments apply to all public and private companies that report items of other comprehensive income. Public companies are required to comply with these amendments for all reporting periods (interim and annual). The amendments are effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2012, for public companies. Early adoption is permitted. The adoption of ASU No. 2013-02 did not have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations.

In January 2013, the FASB issued ASU No. 2013-01, Balance Sheet (Topic 210): Clarifying the Scope of Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities, which clarifies which instruments and transactions are subject to the offsetting disclosure requirements originally established by ASU 2011-11. The new ASU addresses preparer concerns that the scope of the disclosure requirements under ASU 2011-11 was overly broad and imposed unintended costs that were not commensurate with estimated benefits to financial statement users. In choosing to narrow the scope of the offsetting disclosures, the Board determined that it could make them more operable and cost effective for preparers while still giving financial statement users sufficient information to analyze the most significant presentation differences between financial statements prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP and those prepared under IFRSs. Like ASU 2011-11, the amendments in this update will be effective for fiscal periods beginning on, or after January 1, 2013. The adoption of ASU 2013-01 did not have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations.

In October 2012, the FASB issued ASU 2012-04, “Technical Corrections and Improvements” in Accounting Standards Update No. 2012-04. The amendments in this update cover a wide range of Topics in the Accounting Standards Codification. These amendments include technical corrections and improvements to the Accounting Standards Codification and conforming amendments related to fair value measurements. The amendments in this update will be effective for fiscal periods beginning after December 15, 2012. The adoption of ASU 2012-04 is not expected to have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations.




29




DigitalTown, Inc.


NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Years Ended February 28, 2014 and February 28, 2013



In August 2012, the FASB issued ASU 2012-03, “Technical Amendments and Corrections to SEC Sections: Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin (SAB) No. 114, Technical Amendments Pursuant to SEC Release No. 33-9250, and Corrections Related to FASB Accounting Standards Update 2010-22 (SEC Update)” in Accounting Standards Update No. 2012-03. This update amends various SEC paragraphs pursuant to the issuance of SAB No. 114. The adoption of ASU 2012-03 is not expected to have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations.


In July 2012, the FASB issued ASU 2012-02, “Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment” in Accounting Standards Update No. 2012-02. This update amends ASU 2011-08,Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment and permits an entity first to assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that an indefinite-lived intangible asset is impaired as a basis for determining whether it is necessary to perform the quantitative impairment test in accordance with Subtopic 350-30, Intangibles - Goodwill and Other - General Intangibles Other than Goodwill. The amendments are effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012. Early adoption is permitted, including for annual and interim impairment tests performed as of a date before July 27, 2012, if a public entity’s financial statements for the most recent annual or interim period have not yet been issued or, for nonpublic entities, have not yet been made available for issuance. The adoption of ASU 2012-02 is not expected to have a material impact on our financial position or results of operations.

Note 2. Going Concern

The Company’s consolidated financial statements have been 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 a working capital deficit, recurring losses, and negative cash flows from operations. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of asset carrying amounts or the amount and classification of liabilities that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.  


At February 28, 2014, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $28,195,262.  Subsequent to February 28, 2014, the Company has received cash proceeds totaling approximately $10,000 from its stock subscription receivable. The Company anticipates that expected future proceeds from its stock subscription receivable, additional financing through the sale of its common stock or other equity-based securities, and additional sales of existing domain names will be sufficient to meet its working capital and capital expenditure needs through at least February 28, 2015.  In the event that we are unable to obtain additional capital in the future, we would be forced to further reduce operating expenses and/or cease operations altogether.

During the twelve months ended February 28, 2014 and 2013, the Company incurred $197,328 and $70,059, respectively, of annual domain name renewal fees and has expensed $197,411 and $188,232, respectively, to cost of revenues on a straight line basis and has recorded $47,573 and $47,656, respectively, as prepaid expense at February 28, 2014 and 2013.

Note 5. Deferred Officer Compensation


Richard Pomije, Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer of the Company elected to forego a portion of his salary at various times due to the Company’s limited operating funds.

The Company records its stock-based compensation arrangements calculating the fair value of share-based payments, including grants of employee stock options and employee stock purchase plan shares, to be recognized in the consolidated statements of operations based on their grant date fair values.  The fair value of the Company’s stock options have been estimated using the Black-Scholes pricing model, which requires assumptions as to expected dividends, the options expected life, volatility and risk-free interest rate at the time of the grant.  The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as expense on a straight-line basis over the requisite vesting periods in the Company’s consolidated statements of operations.


For stock options granted during the years ended February 28, 2014 and 2013, we utilized the following key assumptions in computing fair value using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model:

There was no tax benefit from recording this non-cash expense due to the Company having a full valuation allowance against its deferred tax asset.

Note 12. Earnings (Loss) Per Share


The Company computes earnings per share using two different methods, basic and diluted, and presents per share data for all periods in which statements of operations are presented. Basic earnings per share are computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding. Diluted earnings per share are computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common stock and common stock equivalents outstanding.


The following tables provide a reconciliation of the numerators and denominators used in calculating basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share for the years ended February 28, 2014 and February 28, 2013:

ITEM 9A.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.


1.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures


 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness, as of February 28, 2014, of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act. The purpose of this evaluation was to determine whether as of the evaluation date our disclosure controls and procedures were effective to provide reasonable assurance that the information we are required to disclose in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, under the Exchange Act (i) is 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 chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based on their evaluation, our management has concluded, as discussed below, that material weaknesses existed in our internal control over financial reporting as of February 28, 2014 and as a result, our disclosures controls and procedures were not effective.  Notwithstanding the material weaknesses that existed as of February 28, 2014, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer have concluded that the financial statements included in this Annual Report on Form 10-K present fairly, in all material aspects, the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the Company in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”).


Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting  


Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rules 13a15-(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The Company’s 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. A company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that:


(i) pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Company;


(ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the Company; and


(iii) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 



47






Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. 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.

 

Under the supervision of our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on the framework in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO). Based on our assessment and those criteria, management concluded that the Company did not maintain effective internal controls over financial reporting as of February 28, 2014.   Management identified the following material weaknesses:


1.

Management did not maintain effective internal controls relating to the quarter end closing and financial reporting process in adequately preparing account reconciliations pertaining to stock option activity;

2.

The Company has insufficient internal personnel resources and technical accounting and reporting expertise within the Company’s financial closing and reporting functions; and

3.

Due to our small size, the Company did not maintain effective internal controls to assure proper segregation of duties as the same employee was responsible for initiating and recording of transactions, thereby creating a segregation of duties weakness;


This annual filing does not include an attestation report of the Company's registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management's report was not subject to attestation by the Company's registered public accounting firm pursuant to an amendment to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act which exempts Smaller Issuers from the requirements of Section 404(b).

 

Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting


During the fiscal quarter ended February 28, 2014, there was no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.


Remediation


In response to the material weaknesses in our internal controls noted above, we have formalized the following corrective procedures to remediate them;


Material weakness #1, #2 and #3;

·

Apply a more rigorous review of the quarterly close processes by the CFO to ensure that the performance of the control is evidenced through appropriate documentation which is consistently maintained;


Additional controls for material weakness #1;

·

Reconciliation of internal stock option register with new options expensed on a quarterly basis;

·

Review of new stock option agreements with Chairman on a quarterly basis;

·

All new stock option agreements will be sequentially numbered; and



48






·

All new stock option grants will be documented in the board minutes including grantee, date of grant, number of options granted, exercise price, vesting terms, and length of agreement.


With the implementation of these corrective actions, we believe that the previously reported material weaknesses will be remediated by the end of the first quarter of the fiscal year 2015; however such procedures will not be tested until our first quarter close.


Inherent Limitation on the Effectiveness of Internal Controls


The effectiveness of any system of internal control over financial reporting, including ours, is subject to inherent limitations, including the exercise of judgment in designing, implementing, operating, and evaluating the controls and procedures, and the inability to eliminate misconduct completely. Accordingly, any system of internal control over financial reporting, including ours, no matter how well designed and operated, can only provide reasonable, not absolute assurances. In addition, 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. We intend to continue to monitor and upgrade our internal controls as necessary or appropriate for our business, but cannot assure you that such improvements will be sufficient to provide us with effective internal control over financial reporting.

Audit Committee Policies and Procedures:




56






The primary responsibility of the Audit Committee is to oversee the Company’s financial reporting process on behalf of the Board and report the results of their activities to the Board. Management is responsible for preparing the Company’s financial statements, and the independent auditors are responsible for auditing those financial statements. The Committee in carrying out its responsibilities and believes its policies and procedures should remain flexible in order to best react to changing conditions and circumstances.


The following shall be the principal recurring processes of the Audit Committee in carrying out its oversight responsibilities. The processes are set forth as a guide with the understanding that the Committee may supplement them as appropriate.


·

The Committee shall have a clear understanding with management and the independent auditors that the independent auditors are ultimately accountable to the board and the Audit Committee, as representatives of the Company’s stockholders. The Committee shall have the ultimate authority for and responsibility to evaluate and annually recommend the selection, retention, and, where appropriate, the replacement of the independent auditors. The Committee shall review and approve the performance by the independent auditors of any non-audit-related service if the fees for such service are projected to exceed 15% of the most recently completed fiscal year’s combined audit fees and audit-related service fees. The Committee shall review and discuss with the auditors their independence from management and the Company and the matters included in the written disclosures required by professional independence standards applicable to the independent auditors. Annually, the Committee shall review and assess whether the independent auditor’s performance of non-audit services is compatible with the auditor’s independence. In addition, the Audit Committee shall review any candidate for the senior accounting and/or financial executive position prior to his or her appointment by the Company.


·

The Committee shall review and discuss with the independent auditors and with the head of the Company’s finance department the overall scope and plans for the audits. Also, the Committee shall discuss with management and the independent auditors the adequacy and effectiveness of the accounting and financial controls, including the Company’s system to monitor and manage business risk, and legal and ethical compliance programs. Further, the Committee shall meet separately with the independent auditors, without management present, to discuss the results of their respective audit procedures.


·

The Committee shall review and discuss the results of the quarterly review and any other matters required to be communicated to the committee by the independent auditors under generally accepted auditing standards. The chair of the Committee may represent the entire Committee for the purpose of this review.


·

The Committee shall review and discuss with management and the independent auditors the financial statements to be included in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K, including their judgment about the quality, not just the acceptability, of accounting principles, the reasonableness of significant judgments, the basis and appropriateness of any change in significant accounting policies and the clarity of the disclosures in the financial statements. Also, the Committee shall review and discuss the results of the annual audit and any other matters required to be communicated to the Committee by the independent auditors under generally accepted auditing standards.




57







·

The Committee shall review and discuss with management and the independent auditors any material financial or non-financial arrangements of the Company which do not appear in the financial statements of the Company and any transactions or courses of dealing with parties related to the Company which transactions are significant in size or involve terms or other aspects that differ from those that would likely be negotiated with independent parties, in each case where such arrangements or transactions are relevant to an understanding of the Company’s financial statements.
