FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

The U. S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) encourages reporting companies to disclose forward-looking information so that investors can better understand future prospects and make informed investment decisions. This report contains these types of statements. Words such as “may,” “intend,” “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “project,” or “continue” or comparable terminology used in connection with any discussion of future operating results or financial performance identify forward-looking statements. You are cautioned not to place undue reliance on the forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this report. All forward-looking statements reflect our present expectation of future events and are subject to a number of important factors and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described in the forward-looking statements.

 

 

PART I

 

ITEM 1. BUSINESS

Historical Development

 

LZG International, Inc. was incorporated in the state of Florida on May 22, 2000, as LazyGrocer.Com, Inc. We intended to establish an online grocery solution, but we were unable to raise sufficient capital to continue operations and limited our operations in November 2001. On August 28, 2009, the Company’s name was changed to LZG International, Inc.

 

Emerging Growth Company

 

We qualify as an emerging growth company as that term is used in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act of 2012 (the “JOBS Act”). An emerging growth company may take advantage of specified reduced reporting and other burdens that are otherwise applicable generally to public companies. These provisions include:

 

A requirement to have only two years of audited financial statements and only two years of related Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations;

 

Exemption from the auditor attestation requirement in the assessment of the emerging growth company’s internal control over financial reporting under Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002;

 

Reduced disclosure about the emerging growth company’s executive compensation arrangements; and

 

No non-binding advisory votes on executive compensation or golden parachute arrangements.

 

We have already taken advantage of these reduced reporting burdens in this annual report, which are also available to us as a smaller reporting company as defined under Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).

 

In addition, Section 107 of the JOBS Act also provides that an emerging growth company can take advantage of the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), for complying with new or revised accounting standards. We have elected to use the extended transition period and therefore our financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with public company accounting standard effective dates.

 

4
 

We could remain an emerging growth company for up to five years, or until the earliest of (i) the last day of the first fiscal year in which our annual gross revenues exceed $1 billion, (ii) the date that we become a “large accelerated filer” as defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Exchange Act, which would occur if the market value of our common stock that is held by non-affiliates exceeds $700 million as of the last business day of our most recently completed second fiscal quarter, or (iii) the date on which we have issued more than $1 billion in non-convertible debt during the preceding three year period.

 

For more details regarding this exemption, see “Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations - Critical Accounting Policies,” below.

 

Our Business

 

Our business purpose is to investigate and, if such investigation warrants, acquire a target company or business seeking the perceived advantages of being a publicly held corporation. Our principal business objective for the next 12 months and beyond will be to achieve long-term growth potential through a combination with a business, rather than immediate, short-term earnings. Our search for a business opportunity will not be limited to any particular geographical area or industry, including both U.S. and international companies. Our management has unrestricted discretion in seeking and participating in a business opportunity, subject to the availability of such opportunities, economic conditions and other factors. Our management believes that companies who desire a public market to enhance liquidity for current stockholders or plan to acquire additional assets through issuance of securities rather than for cash will be potential merger or acquisition candidates.

 

We are a "blank check" company based on our proposed business activities. The SEC defines those companies as "any development stage company that is issuing a penny stock, within the meaning of Section 3(a)(51) of the Exchange Act, and that has no specific business plan or purpose, or has indicated that its business plan is to merge with an unidentified company or companies." Under SEC Rule 12b-2 under the Exchange Act, we also qualify as a “shell company” because we have no or nominal assets (other than cash) and no or nominal operations. Many states have enacted statutes, rules and regulations limiting the sale of securities of "blank check" companies in their respective jurisdictions. Management does not intend to undertake any efforts to cause a market to develop in our securities, either debt or equity, until we have successfully concluded a business combination. We intend to comply with the periodic reporting requirements of the Exchange Act for so long as we are subject to those requirements.

 

The analysis of new business opportunities will be undertaken by or under the supervision of our management. As of the date of this filing, we have not entered into any definitive agreement with any party, nor have there been any specific discussions with any potential business combination candidate regarding business opportunities for the Company. We have unrestricted flexibility in seeking, analyzing and participating in potential business opportunities. In our efforts to analyze potential acquisition targets, we intend to consider the following factors:

 

Potential for growth, indicated by new technology, anticipated market expansion or new products;

 

Competitive position as compared to other firms of similar size and experience within the industry segment as well as within the industry as a whole;

 

Strength and diversity of management, either in place or scheduled for recruitment;

 

Capital requirements and anticipated availability of required funds, to be provided by the Company or from operations, through the sale of additional securities, through joint ventures or similar arrangements or from other sources;

 

The cost of participation by the Company as compared to the perceived tangible and intangible values and potentials;

 

The extent to which the business opportunity can be advanced;

 

5
 

The accessibility of required management expertise, personnel, raw materials, services, professional assistance and other required items; and

 

Other relevant factors.

 

In applying the foregoing criteria, no one of which will be controlling, management will attempt to analyze all factors and circumstances and make a determination based upon reasonable investigative measures and available data. Potentially available business opportunities may occur in many different industries, and at various stages of development, all of which will make the task of comparative investigation and analysis of such business opportunities extremely difficult and complex. Due to our limited capital available for investigation, we may not discover or adequately evaluate adverse facts about the opportunity to be acquired. In addition, we will be competing against other entities that possess greater financial, technical and managerial capabilities for identifying and completing business combinations.

 

In evaluating a prospective business combination, we will conduct as extensive a due diligence review of potential targets as possible; however, none of our management are professional business analysts. (See Item 10, below.) Our management has had limited experience with mergers and acquisitions of business opportunities and has not been involved with an initial public offering. Potential investors must recognize that due to our management’s inexperience we may not adequately evaluate a potential business opportunity.

 

We are unable to predict when, and if, we may actually participate in any specific business endeavor. We anticipate that proposed business ventures will be made available to us through personal contacts of our directors, executive officers and principal stockholders, professional advisors, broker dealers in securities, venture capital personnel, members of the financial community and others who may present unsolicited proposals. In certain cases, we may agree to pay a finder’s fee or to otherwise compensate the persons who submit a potential business endeavor in which we eventually participate. Such persons may include our directors, executive officers and beneficial owners of our securities or their “affiliates.” In that event, such fees may become a factor in negotiations regarding any potential venture and, accordingly, may present a conflict of interest for such individuals. Management does not presently intend to acquire or merge with any business enterprise in which any has a prior ownership interest.

 

In addition, certain conflicts of interest exist or may develop between LZG and our executive officers and directors. Our management has other business interests to which they currently devote attention, which include their primary employment and management of other shell reporting companies. (See Item 10, below.) They may be expected to continue to devote their attention to these other business interests although management time should be devoted to our business. Also, in the process of negotiations for an acquisition or merger, our management may consider their own personal pecuniary benefit or the interests of other shell companies they are affiliated with rather than the best interests of LZG and our stockholders.

 

We presently do not foresee entering into a merger or acquisition transaction with any business with which our officers or directors are currently affiliated. We may acquire or merge with companies of which our management’s affiliates or associates have a direct or indirect ownership interest. If we determine in the future that a transaction with an affiliate would be in our best interest, we are permitted by Florida law to enter into such a transaction if:

 

  • The material facts regarding the relationship or interest of the affiliate in the contract or transaction are disclosed or are known to the board of directors. The board authorizes the contract or transaction by the affirmative vote of a majority of the disinterested directors, even though the disinterested directors constitute less than a quorum; however, a single director may not authorize the contract or transaction; or

 

  • The material facts regarding the relationship or interest of the affiliate in the contract transaction are disclosed or are known to the stockholders entitled to vote on the transaction, and the contract or transaction is specifically approved by vote of the stockholders; or

6
 

 

  • The contract or transaction is fair to the Company at the time it is authorized, approved or ratified by the board of directors or the stockholders.

 

We expect that our due diligence will encompass, among other things, meetings with the target business’s incumbent management and inspection of its facilities, as necessary, as well as a review of financial and other information which is made available to the Company. This due diligence review will be conducted either by our management or by unaffiliated third parties we may engage. Our limited funds and the lack of full-time management will likely make it impracticable to conduct a complete and exhaustive investigation and analysis of a target business before we consummate a business combination. We anticipate that we will rely upon funds provided by advances and/or loans from management and significant stockholders to conduct investigation and analysis of any potential target companies or businesses. We may also rely upon the issuance of our common stock in lieu of cash payments for services or expenses related to any analysis. Management decisions, therefore, will likely be made without detailed feasibility studies, independent analysis, market surveys and the like which, if we had more funds available to us, would be desirable. We will be particularly dependent in making decisions upon information provided by the promoters, owners, sponsors or other persons associated with the target business seeking our participation.

 

The time and costs required to select and evaluate a target business and to structure and complete a business combination cannot presently be ascertained with any degree of certainty. Any costs incurred with respect to the indemnification and evaluation of a prospective business combination that is not ultimately completed will result in a loss to the Company. Also, substantial fees are often paid in connection with the completion of all types of acquisitions, reorganizations or mergers, ranging from a small amount to as much as $300,000 or more. These fees are usually divided among promoters or founders or finders, after deduction of legal, accounting and other related expenses, and it is not unusual for a portion of these fees to be paid to members of management or to principal stockholders as consideration for their agreement to retire a portion of the shares of common stock owned by them. Management may actively negotiate or otherwise consent to the purchase of all or any portion of their common stock as a condition to, or in connection with, a proposed reorganization, merger or acquisition. It is not anticipated that any such opportunity will be afforded to other stockholders or that such other stockholders will be afforded the opportunity to approve or consent to any particular stock buy-out transaction. In the event that any such fees are paid, they may become a factor in negotiations regarding any potential acquisition or merger by us, and accordingly, may also present a conflict of interest for such individuals. We have no present arrangements or understandings respecting any of these types of fees or opportunities and we have not adopted any procedures or policies for the review, approval or ratification of related party transactions.

 

Our common stock is not publicly traded at this time and we cannot assure that a market will develop or that a stockholder ever will be able to liquidate his investments without considerable delay, if at all. If a market develops, our shares will likely be subject to the rules of the Penny Stock Suitability Reform Act of 1990. The liquidity of penny stock is affected by specific disclosure procedures required by this Act to be followed by all broker-dealers, including, but not limited to, determining the suitability of the stock for a particular customer, and obtaining a writtends agreement from the customer to purchase the stock. This rule may affect the ability of broker-dealers to sell our securities and may affect the ability of purchasers to sell our securities in any future market.

 

Form of Acquisition

 

The manner in which we participate in an opportunity will depend upon the nature of the opportunity, the respective needs and desires of the Company and the promoters of the opportunity, and the relative negotiating strength of the Company and such promoters.

 

It is likely that we will acquire our participation in a business opportunity through the issuance of our common stock or other securities. Although the terms of any such transaction cannot be predicted, it should be noted that in certain circumstances the criteria for determining whether or not an acquisition is a so-called "tax free" reorganization under Section 368(a)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code") depends upon whether the owners of the acquired business own 80% or more of the voting stock of the surviving entity. If a transaction were structured to take advantage of these provisions rather than other "tax free" provisions provided under the Code, all prior stockholders would in such circumstances retain 20% or less of the total issued and outstanding shares of the surviving entity. Under other circumstances, depending upon the relative negotiating strength of the parties, prior stockholders may retain substantially less than 20% of the total issued and outstanding shares of the surviving entity. This could result in substantial additional dilution to the equity of those persons who were our stockholders prior to such reorganization.

7
 

 

Our present stockholders will likely not have control of a majority of the voting securities of the Company following a reorganization transaction. As part of such a transaction, all or a majority of our directors may resign, and one or more new directors may be appointed without any vote by stockholders.

 

In the case of an acquisition, the transaction may be accomplished upon the sole determination of management without any vote or approval by stockholders. In the case of a statutory merger or consolidation directly involving the Company, it will likely be necessary to call a stockholders' meeting and obtain the approval of the holders of a majority of the outstanding securities. The necessity to obtain such stockholder approval may result in delay and additional expense in the consummation of any proposed transaction and will also give rise to certain appraisal rights to dissenting stockholders. Most likely, management will seek to structure any such transaction so as not to require stockholder approval.

 

It is anticipated that the investigation of specific business opportunities and the negotiation, drafting and execution of relevant agreements, disclosure documents and other instruments will require substantial management time and attention and substantial cost for accountants, attorneys and others. If a decision is made not to participate in a specific business opportunity, the costs incurred in the related investigation might not be recoverable. Furthermore, even if an agreement is reached for the participation in a specific business opportunity, the failure to consummate that transaction may result in the loss to the Company of the related costs incurred.

 

In addition, SEC regulations regarding shell companies and transactions with shell companies requires the filing of a Form 8-K within four business days of the closing of any business combination and that report must include all information that would have been required to have been filed had any such company filed a Form 10 Registration Statement with the SEC, along with required audited, interim and pro forma financial statements. These regulations may eliminate many of the perceived advantages of these types of transactions. These regulations also deny the use of Form S-8 for the registration of securities of a shell company, and limit the use of Form S-8 to a reorganized shell company until the expiration of 60 days from when any such entity is no longer considered to be a shell company. This prohibition could further restrict opportunities for us to acquire companies that may already have stock option plans in place that cover numerous employees. In such an instance, there may be no exemption from registration for the issuance of securities in any business combination to these employees, thereby necessitating the filing of a registration statement with the SEC to complete any such reorganization, and incurring the time and expenses that are normally avoided by reverse reorganizations.

 

Competition

 

Additionally, we are in a highly competitive market for a small number of business opportunities which could reduce the likelihood of consummating a successful business combination. We are, and will continue to be, an insignificant participant in the business of seeking mergers with, joint ventures with and acquisitions of small private and public entities. A large number of established and well-financed entities, including other small public companies and venture capital firms, are active in mergers and acquisitions of companies that may be desirable target candidates for the Company. Nearly all these entities have significantly greater financial resources, technical expertise and managerial capabilities than we do; consequently, we will be at a competitive disadvantage in identifying possible business opportunities and successfully completing a business combination. These competitive factors may reduce the likelihood of our identifying and consummating a business combination.

 

Effect of Existing or Probable Governmental Regulations on Our Business Plan

 

We are subject to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. This Act created an independent accounting oversight board to oversee the conduct of auditors, of public companies and to strengthen auditor independence. It also requires steps to enhance the direct responsibility of senior members of management for financial reporting and for the quality of financial disclosures made by public companies; establishes clear statutory rules to limit, and to expose to public view, possible conflicts of interest affecting securities analysts; creates guidelines for audit committee members’ appointment, and compensation and oversight of the work of public companies’ auditors; prohibits certain insider trading during pension fund blackout periods; and establishes a federal crime of securities fraud, among other provisions.

8
 

 

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

 

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

 

Employees

 

We presently do not have employees. Our directors and officers are engaged in outside business activities and anticipate that they will devote very limited time to our business until a successful business opportunity has been identified. We do not expect significant changes in the number of our employees other than such changes, if any, incident to a business combination.

 

 

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

 

AN INVESTMENT IN THE COMPANY IS HIGHLY SPECULATIVE IN NATURE AND INVOLVES A HIGH DEGREE OF RISK.

 

We have minimal assets and no source of revenue.

 

We have few assets and have not recorded revenues since inception. We will not receive revenues until we select an industry in which to commence business or complete an acquisition, reorganization or merger. We can provide no assurance that any selected or acquired business will produce any material revenues for us or our stockholders, or that any such business will operate on a profitable basis.

 

We will, in all likelihood, sustain operating expenses without corresponding revenues, at least until the consummation of a merger or other business combination with a private company. This may result in our incurring a net operating loss that will increase unless we consummate a business combination with a profitable business. We cannot assure you that we can identify a suitable business opportunity and consummate a business combination, or that any such business will be profitable at the time of its acquisition by the Company or ever.

 

There can be no assurance that we will successfully consummate a business combination.

 

We can give no assurances that we will successfully identify and evaluate suitable business opportunities or that we will conclude a business combination. Management has not identified any particular industry or specific business within an industry for evaluation. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to negotiate a business combination on favorable terms. At the date of this filing, we have no arrangement, agreement or understanding with respect to engaging in a merger with, joint venture with or acquisition of, a private or public entity. No assurances can be given that we will successfully identify and evaluate suitable business opportunities or that we will conclude a business combination.

9
 

 

There is currently no trading market for our common stock, and liquidity of shares of our common stock is limited.

 

Shares of our common stock are not registered under the securities laws of any state or other jurisdiction, and accordingly there is no public trading market for the common stock. Further, no public trading market is expected to develop in the foreseeable future unless and until we complete a business combination with an operating business or the Company files and obtains effectiveness of a registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”). Therefore, outstanding shares of common stock cannot be offered, sold, pledged or otherwise transferred unless subsequently registered pursuant to, or exempt from registration under, the Securities Act and any other applicable federal or state securities laws or regulations. Stockholders may rely on the exemption from registration provided by Rule 144 of the Securities Act (“Rule 144”), subject to certain restrictions; namely, common stock may not be sold until one year after:

 

(i) the completion of a business combination with a private company in a reverse merger or reverse takeover transaction after which the Company would cease to be a “shell company” (as defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Exchange Act) and

(ii) the disclosure of certain information on a Current Report on Form 8-K within four business days thereafter, and only if the Company has been current in all of its periodic SEC filings for the 12 months preceding the contemplated sale of stock.

 

Compliance with the criteria for securing exemptions under federal securities laws and the securities laws of the various states is extremely complex, especially in respect of those exemptions affording flexibility and the elimination of trading restrictions in respect of securities received in exempt transactions and subsequently disposed of without registration under the Securities Act or state securities laws.

 

It is likely that our common stock will be considered “penny stock,” which may make it more difficult for investors to sell their shares due to suitability requirements.

 

Our common stock may be deemed to be “penny stock” as that term is defined under the Exchange Act. Penny stocks generally are equity securities with a price of less than $5.00. Penny stock rules impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell to persons other than established customers and “accredited investors.” The term “accredited investor” refers generally to institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000 or individuals with a net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or an annual income exceeding $200,000 or $300,000 jointly with their spouse.

 

The penny stock rules require a broker/dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized disclosure document in a form prepared by the SEC, which provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market. In addition, broker/dealers are required to determine whether an investment in a penny stock is a suitable investment for a prospective investor. A broker/dealer must receive a written agreement to the transaction from the investor setting forth the identity and quantity of the penny stock to be purchased. These requirements 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 expect to issue more shares in a merger or acquisition, which will result in substantial dilution.

 

Our Articles of Incorporation authorize the Company to issue an aggregate of 120,000,000 shares of capital stock, of which 100,000,000 are shares of common stock and 20,000,000 are shares of preferred stock. Any merger or acquisition effected by the Company may result in the issuance of additional securities without stockholder approval and may result in substantial dilution in the percentage of our common stock held by our then existing stockholders. Moreover, our common stock issued in any such merger or acquisition transaction may be valued on an arbitrary or non-arm’s-length basis by our management, resulting in an additional reduction in the percentage of common stock held by our then existing stockholders. Our board of directors has the power to issue any or all of such authorized but unissued shares without stockholder approval. To the extent that additional shares of common stock or preferred stock are issued in connection with a business combination or otherwise, dilution to the interests of our stockholders will occur and the rights of the holders of common stock might be materially adversely affected.

10
 

 

We are an “emerging growth company” under the JOBS Act and we cannot be certain if the reduced disclosure requirements applicable to emerging growth companies will make our common stock less attractive to investors.

 

As an emerging growth company we may take advantage of certain exemptions from various reporting requirements that are applicable to other public companies that are not emerging growth companies including, but not limited to, not being required to comply with the auditor attestation requirements of section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, reduced disclosure obligations regarding executive compensation in our periodic reports and proxy statements, and exemptions from the requirements of holding a nonbinding advisory vote on executive compensation and shareholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved. In addition we have elected to use the extended transition period that allows an emerging growth company to delay the adoption of certain accounting standards until those standards would otherwise apply to private companies and, therefore, our financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with public company effective dates.

 

We cannot predict if investors will find our common stock less attractive because we may rely on these exemptions. If some investors find our common stock less attractive as a result, there may be a less active trading market for our common stock and our stock price may be more volatile. We will remain an emerging growth company for up to five years, although we will lose that status sooner if our revenues exceed $1 billion, if we issue more than $1 billion in non-convertible debt in a three year period, or if the market value of our common stock that is held by non-affiliates exceeds $700 million as of any May 31.

 

 

ITEM 2. PROPERTIES

 

We neither rent nor own any properties. We utilize the office space and equipment of our President, Mr. Popp, without charge. We currently have no policy with respect to investments or interests in real estate, real estate mortgages or securities of, or interests in, persons primarily engaged in real estate activities.

 

 

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

We are not a party to any proceedings or threatened proceedings as of the date of this filing.

 

 

ITEM 4. MINE SAFETY DISCLOSURE

 

Not applicable to our operations.

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

 

Market Information

 

Our common stock is not listed to trade on any public trading market. We do not have any outstanding options or warrants to purchase our securities or securities convertible into our common stock.

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Executive Overview

 

We are currently a development stage company and have not recorded revenues from operations to date. We have not established an ongoing source of revenues sufficient to cover our operating costs. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. We are currently devoting our efforts to obtain capital from management, significant stockholders and/or third parties to cover minimal expenses; however, there is no assurance that additional funding will be available. Our ability to continue as a going concern during the long term is dependent upon our ability to find a suitable company and acquire or enter into a merger with such company.

 

The type of business opportunity with which we acquire or merge will affect our profitability for long term. We may consider a business which has recently commenced operations, is a developing company in need of additional funds for expansion into new products or markets, is seeking to develop a new product or service, or is an established business which may be experiencing financial or operating difficulties and is in need of additional capital. In the alternative, a business combination may involve the acquisition of, or merger with, a company which does not need substantial additional capital, but which desires to establish a public trading market for its shares, while avoiding, among other things, the time delays, significant expense, and loss of voting control which may occur through a public offering.

 

Our management has not had any preliminary contact or discussions with any representative of any other entity regarding a business combination with us. Any target business that is selected may be a financially unstable company or an entity in its early stages of development or growth, including entities without established records of sales or earnings. In that event, we will be subject to numerous risks inherent in the business and operations of financially unstable and early stage or potential emerging growth companies. In addition, we may effect a business combination with an entity in an industry characterized by a high level of risk, and, although our management will endeavor to evaluate the risks inherent in a particular target business, there can be no assurance that we will properly ascertain or assess all significant risks.

12
 

 

Our management anticipates that we will likely be able to effect only one business combination, due primarily to our limited financing and the dilution of interest for present and prospective stockholders, which is likely to occur as a result of our management’s plan to offer a controlling interest to a target business in order to achieve a tax-free reorganization. This lack of diversification should be considered a substantial risk in investing in us, because it will not permit us to offset potential losses from one venture against gains from another.

 

We anticipate that the selection of a business combination will be complex and extremely risky. Because of general economic conditions, rapid technological advances being made in some industries and shortages of available capital, our management believes that there are numerous firms seeking even the limited additional capital which we will have and/or the perceived benefits of becoming a publicly traded corporation. Such perceived benefits of becoming a publicly traded corporation include, among other things, facilitating or improving the terms on which additional equity financing may be obtained, providing liquidity for the principals of and investors in a business, creating a means for providing incentive stock options or similar benefits to key employees, and offering greater flexibility in structuring acquisitions, joint ventures and the like through the issuance of stock. Potentially available business combinations may occur in many different industries and at various stages of development, all of which will make the task of comparative investigation and analysis of such business opportunities extremely difficult and complex.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At May 31, 2014, we had cash of $6,879 and total liabilities of $131,939 compared to cash of $270 and total liabilities of $92,017 at May 31, 2013. We are currently a development stage company and have not recorded revenues from operations since inception. In addition, we have not established an ongoing source of revenue sufficient to cover our operating costs. During the year ended May 31, 2014 we borrowed $17,800 from a third party to fund our operations and relied upon First Equity Holdings Corp, a stockholder (“First Equity”), for administrative and professional services totaling $18,400. During the year ended May 31, 2013 we borrowed $1,500 from a third party and relied upon First Equity for administrative and professional services totaling $24,800.

 

These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. We are currently devoting our efforts to obtaining capital from management, significant stockholders and/or third parties to cover minimal operations; however, there is no assurance that additional funding will be available. Our ability to continue as a going concern during the long term is dependent upon our ability to find a suitable business opportunity and acquire or enter into a merger with such a company.

 

The type of business opportunity that we acquire or merge with will affect our profitability for the long term. We may consider a business which has recently commenced operations, is a developing company in need of additional funds for expansion into new products or markets, is seeking to develop a new product or service, or is an established business which may be experiencing financial or operating difficulties and is in need of additional capital. In the alternative, a business combination may involve the acquisition of, or merger with, a company which does not need substantial additional capital, but which desires to establish a public trading market for its securities, while avoiding, among other things, the time delays, significant expense, and loss of voting control which may occur through a public offering.

 

During the next 12 months we anticipate incurring costs related to the filing of Exchange Act reports, and possibly investigating, analyzing and consummating an acquisition. We believe we will be able to meet these costs through funds provided by management, significant stockholders and third parties.

 

Results of Operations

 

We did not record revenues in the 2014 and 2013. General and administrative expenses decreased from $32,595 for 2013 to $29,591 for 2014. General and administrative expenses represented consulting, administrative, professional services and out of pocket costs and the 2014 decrease is primarily due to reduced consulting and administrative fees.

13
 

 

Total other expense increased from $2,635 for 2013 to $3,722 for 2014 as a result of interest on loans.

 

Our net loss decreased from $35,230 for 2013 to $33,313 for 2014. Management expects net losses to continue until we acquire or merge with a business opportunity.

 

Obligations

 

We have relied upon loans and advances to fund our operational expenses. During the years ended May 31, 2009 and 2010, our Director and President, Greg L. Popp, loaned an aggregate of $23,500 to the Company. On April 20, 2010, these loans were combined into one promissory note which carries interest at 8%, is not collateralized and matured in June 2012. On July 1, 2013, Mr. Popp extended the due date of this loan from June 30, 2013 to June 30, 2015.

 

During 2014 we borrowed $17,800 and during 2013 we borrowed $1,500 from a third party for operating expenses. At May 31, 2014 we owe the third party $28,300. These loans are payable upon demand, are not collateralized and bear interest at 8% per annum.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have not entered into any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources and would be considered material to investors.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

We qualify as an “emerging growth company” under the recently enacted JOBS Act. As a result, we are permitted to, and intend to, rely on exemptions from certain disclosure requirements. For so long as we are an emerging growth company, among other things, we will not be required to:

 

Have an auditor report on our internal controls over financial reporting pursuant to Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act;

 

Submit certain executive compensation matters to shareholder advisory votes, such as “say-on-pay” and “say-on-frequency”

 

Obtain shareholder approval of any golden parachute payments not previously approved; and

 

Disclose certain executive compensation related items such as the correlation between executive compensation and performance and comparisons of the Chief Executives compensation to median employee compensation.

 

In addition, Section 107 of the JOBS Act also provides that an emerging growth company can take advantage of the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act for complying with new or revised accounting standards. In other words, an emerging growth company can delay the adoption of certain accounting standards until those standards would otherwise apply to private companies. We have elected to take advantage of the benefits of this extended transition period. Our financial statements may therefore not be comparable to those of companies that comply with such new or revised accounting standards.

 

14
 

We will remain an “emerging growth company” for up to five years, or until the earliest of (i) the last day of the first fiscal year in which our total annual gross revenues exceed $1 billion; (ii) the date that we become a “large accelerated filer” as defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, which would occur if the market value of our ordinary shares that is held by non-affiliates exceeds $700 million as of the last business day of our most recently completed second fiscal quarter or (iii) the date on which we have issued more than $1 billion in non-convertible debt during the preceding three-year period.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the Board of Directors and
Stockholders LZG International, Inc.

We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of LZG International, Inc. (a development stage company) (the “Company”) as of May 31, 2014 and 2013 and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the years then ended. LGZ International 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 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 audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of LGZ International, Inc. as of May 31, 2014 and 2013, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for years ended May 31, 2014 and 2013 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, The Company is in the development stage, has not earned significant revenue, has suffered net losses and has had negative cash flows from operating activities during the years ended May 31, 2014 and 2013. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans concerning these matters are also described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments to the recoverability and classification of asset carrying amounts or the amount and classification of liabilities that might result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

LZG International, Inc.

(A Development Stage Company)

Notes to the Financial Statements

May 31, 2014 and 2013

 

 

NOTE 1 - Organization and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

(A) Organization

 

LZG International, Inc. (the Company) is a Florida development stage company that was incorporated on May 22, 2000. The Company has not paid any dividends and any dividends that may be paid in the future will depend upon the financial requirements of the Company and other relevant factors. The Company business model intended to establish an online grocery solution. A wholly-owned Canadian subsidiary, LazyGrocer.Com Corp., was established as part of this model, but it was dissolved in 2001.

 

Activities during the development stage have included raising capital and development of the Company’s business plan, Securities and Exchange Commission filings and limited operations.

 

(B) Use of Estimates

 

In preparing financial statements, management is required 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 may differ from these estimates.

 

(C) Cash Equivalents

 

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

 

(D) Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

It is not practicable to estimate the fair value of related party loans because there is no established market for these loans and it is inappropriate to estimate future cash flows, which are largely dependent on the Company establishing or acquiring operations at some future point. No financial instruments are held for trading purposes.

 

(E)  Basic and Fully Diluted Income (Loss) Per Share

 

In accordance with ASC 260, Earnings Per Share (“ASC 260”) (formerly SFAS No. 128), the computations of basic loss per share of common stock are based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period of the consolidated financial statements.

 

The computations of basic and fully diluted loss per share of common stock are based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period of the consolidated financial statements, plus the common stock equivalents, which would arise from the exercise of stock options and warrants outstanding during the period, or the exercise of convertible debentures. As of May 31, 2014 and 2013, all common stock activity has been included and there were no items considered to be anti-dilutive

Notes to the Financial Statements

NOTE 1 - Organization and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Continued)

 

Following is a reconciliation of the loss per share for the years ended May 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively:

 

 

   For the Years Ended
   May 31,
   2014  2013
Net (loss) available to          
Common shareholders  $(33,313)  $(35,230)
           
Weighted average shares   250,556    250,556 
           
Basic and fully diluted loss per share (based on weighted average shares)  $(0.13)  $(0.14)

 

 

(F)Concentration of Credit Risk

 

Financial instruments, which potentially subject us to concentrations of credit risk, consist principally of cash.   Our cash balances are maintained in accounts held by major banks and financial institutions located in the United States.  The Company does not maintain amounts on deposit with a financial institution that are in excess of the federally insured limit of $250,000. The Company had $0 of cash balances in excess of federally insured limits at May 31, 2014 and 2013.

 

NOTE 2 - Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company has current liabilities in excess of current assets, has incurred losses since inception, has negative cash flows from operations, and has no revenue-generating activities. Its activities have been limited for the past several years and it is dependent upon financing to continue operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. It is management’s plan to acquire or merge with other operating companies.

 

NOTE 3 - Development Stage Company

 

The Company has no significant operations and is considered a development stage company. It is concentrating substantially all of its efforts in raising capital and searching for a business operation with which to merge, or assets to acquire, in order to generate significant operations.

Notes to the Financial Statements

May 31, 2014 and 2013

 

NOTE 4 – Income Taxes

 

At May 31, 2014, the Company has available unused net operating loss carryforwards of approximately $ 126,320 which may be applied against future taxable income and which expire in various years from 2021 through 2033. Due to a substantial change in the Company’s ownership during June, 2008 there will be an annual limitation on the amount of previous net operating loss carryforwards that can be utilized.

 

The amount of and ultimate realization of the benefits from the net operating loss carryforwards for income tax purposes is dependent, in part, upon the tax laws in effect, the future earnings of the Company, and other future events, the effects of which cannot be determined. Because of the uncertainty surrounding the realization of the net operating loss carryforwards, the Company has established a valuation allowance equal to the tax effect of the net operating loss carryforwards and, therefore, no deferred tax asset has been recognized for the net operating loss carryforwards. The net deferred tax assets are approximately $ 18,948 and $ 13,951 as of May 31, 2014 and 2013, respectively, with an offsetting valuation allowance of the same amount resulting in a change in the valuation allowance of approximately $ 4,997 during the year ended May 31, 2014.

 

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 statements of operations in the provision for income taxes.  As of May 31, 2014 and 2013, 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 May 31, 2013, 2012 and 2011.

 

NOTE 5 - Capitalization

 

In 2000, the Company issued 46,289 shares of common stock for cash of $9,258 ($.20 per share).

 

In 2000, the Company issued 27,358 shares of common stock for services valued at $1,805,638 ($66.00 per share).

 

In 2000, the Company issued 3,000 shares of common stock for cash of $200,000 ($66.67 per share).

 

In August, 2000, the Company issued 15,043 shares of common stock for services valued at $992,869 ($66.00 per share).

 

In June, 2008, the Company issued 158,310 shares of the Company’s common stock to settle $1,000 in accounts payable ($.0063 per share).

Notes to the Financial Statements

May 31, 2014 and 2013

 

NOTE 5 - Capitalization (Continued)

 

On August 5, 2008, the stockholders approved a 1 for 200 reverse stock split, effective August 25, 2008. The reverse resulted in the issuance of an additional 556 shares for rounding up of fractional shares. These financial statements and accompanying notes have been restated to reflect the reverse stock split.

 

NOTE 6 - Related Party Transactions

 

The financial statements include related party transactions, which as of May 31, 2014, were loans from an officer of the Company totaling $23,500. The loans had an original due date of June 30, 2013 and have been extended to June 30, 2015. They are not collateralized, and bear interest at 8% per annum. Interest expense was $1,880 for years ended May 31, 2014 and 2013.

 

NOTE 7 – Loan Payable

 

The Company borrowed $28,300 from a third party. The loan is due on demand, is not collateralized, and bears interest at 8% per annum. Interest expense was $1,842 and $755 for years ended May 31, 2014 and 2013.

 

NOTE 8 – Subsequent Events

 

The Company has evaluated all events occurring after the date of the accompanying balance sheets through the date the financial statements were available to be issued and did not identify any material subsequent events requiring adjustments to the accompanying financial statements.

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

 

We have not had a change in or disagreement with accountants on accounting financial disclosure.

 

 

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our filings under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC. This information is accumulated to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our President, who serves as our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report and he determined that our disclosure controls and procedures were ineffective because we had a control deficiency. During the period we did not have additional personnel to allow segregation of duties to ensure the completeness or accuracy of our information. Due to the size and operations of our Company we are unable to remediate this deficiency until we acquire or merge with another company with more personnel.

 

Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Management is responsible to establish and maintain adequate internal control over financial reporting. Our principal executive officer is responsible to design or supervise a process that provides reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The policies and procedures include:

  • maintenance of records in reasonable detail to accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions 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 receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors, and
  • provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of assets that could have a material effect on our financial statements.

 

For the year ended May 31, 2014, management has relied on the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO), “Internal Control - Integrated Framework,” to evaluate the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting. Based upon that framework, management determined that in the preparation of the financial statements we did not have additional personnel to allow segregation of duties to ensure the completeness or accuracy of our information. Accordingly, our President has concluded that our internal control over financial reporting is ineffective because lack of an adequate control environment constitutes a deficiency. Due to the size and operations of the Company we are unable to remediate this deficiency until we acquire or merge with another company with more personnel.

 

Our management determined that there were no changes made in our internal controls over financial reporting during the fourth quarter of 2014 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal control over financial reporting.

 

 

ITEM 9B. OTHER INFORMATION

 

None.

PART III

 

ITEM 10. DIRECTORS, EXECUTIVE OFFICERS AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

 

Directors and Executive Officers

 

Our directors and executive officers and their respective ages, positions, and biographical information are set forth below. Our bylaws require a minimum of one director and our current directors serve until our next annual meeting or until each is replaced by a qualified director. Our executive officers are chosen by our board of directors and serve at its discretion. There are no existing family relationships between or among any of our executive officers or directors.

 

Name Age Position Held Term of Director
Greg L. Popp 45 Director and President August 5, 2008 until next annual meeting
L. Lee Perry 70 Director and Secretary/Treasurer August 5, 2008 until next annual meeting

 

Greg L. Popp: Mr. Popp is the President of Marine Life Sciences, LLC, a Nevada company that wholesales and retails neutraceutical products to companies. He has served as President of that company since April 2005. In addition, during the past five years he has also served as Director and President of Investrio, Inc., a Utah corporation which has developed a software platform and educational products for consumers. Neither Marine Life Sciences nor Investrio, Inc. is an affiliate or subsidiary of LZG.

 

His professional qualifications include an MBA and extensive experience with small company operations along with experience as a Director and President of Wings & Things, Inc., a company that has a class of securities registered with the SEC pursuant to Section 12.

 

L. Lee Perry: Ms. Perry serves as President of Business Builders, Inc., a privately held Utah corporation that provides business consulting for small businesses which she co-founded in 1997. Her business experience includes operating a small consulting business and prior experience as a director and executive officer of Globalwise Investments, Inc., a company that has a class of securities registered with the SEC pursuant to Section 12. While serving as director and executive officer of Globalwise Investments, Inc. she participated in that company’s acquisition of a business opportunity.

 

During the past ten years none of our executive officers have been involved in any legal proceedings that are material to an evaluation of their ability or integrity; namely: (1) filed a petition under federal bankruptcy laws or any state insolvency laws, nor had a receiver, fiscal agent or similar officer appointed by a court for the business or property of such person, or any partnership in which he/she was a general partner at or within two years before the time of such filing, or any corporation or business association of which he/she was an executive officer at or within two years before the time of such filing; (2) been convicted in a criminal proceeding or named subject to a pending criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations and other minor offenses); (3) been the subject of any order, judgment or decree, not subsequently reversed, suspended or vacated, of any court of competent jurisdiction, permanently or temporarily enjoining him or her from or otherwise limiting his/her involvement in any type of business, securities or banking activities; or (4) been found by a court of competent jurisdiction in a civil action, by the SEC or the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to have violated any federal or state securities law, and the judgment in such civil action or finding by the SEC has not been subsequently reversed, suspended, or vacated.

 

Compliance with Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act

 

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires our directors, executive officers and persons who own more than ten percent of a registered class of our equity securities, to file with the SEC initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership of common stock and our other equity securities. Officers, directors and greater than ten-percent beneficial owners are required by SEC regulations to furnish us with copies of all Section 16(a) reports they file. We believe no reports were required to be filed during the year ended May 31, 2014.

27
 

 

Code of Ethics

 

Since we have only two persons serving as executive officers and directors and because we have minimal operations, we have not adopted a code of ethics for our principal executive and financial officers. Our board of directors will revisit this issue in the future to determine if adoption of a code of ethics is appropriate. In the meantime, our management intends to promote honest and ethical conduct, full and fair disclosure in our reports to the SEC, and comply with applicable governmental laws and regulations.

 

Corporate Governance

 

We are a smaller reporting company with minimal operations and only two directors and executive officers. Our board of directors (“Board”) has general charge, supervision and control of the business and affairs of the Company. We believe this leadership structure is appropriate for the size of the Company. In addition, the Board’s role in the Company’s risk management process includes reviewing operational, financial, legal, regulatory, and strategic risks. The Board reviews these factors to enable it to understand and assess the Company’s risk identification, risk management and risk mitigation strategies. The Board has the ultimate oversight responsibility for the risk management process.

 

We do not have a standing nominating committee for directors, nor do we have an audit committee with an audit committee financial expert serving on that committee. Our Board acts as our nominating and audit committee.

 

 

ITEM 11. EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION

 

Executive Officer Compensation

 

Our principal executive officer, Mr. Popp, did not receive compensation during the past fiscal year ended May 31, 2014. None of our named executive officers received any cash or non-cash compensation during the past two fiscal years, nor did they have outstanding equity awards at year end. We have not entered into employment contracts with our executive officers and their compensation, if any, will be determined at the discretion of our board of directors.

 

We currently do not have a compensation committee and during the last completed fiscal year our board of directors did not consider or approve any executive officer compensation.

 

We do not offer retirement benefit plans to our executive officers, nor have we entered into any contract, agreement, plan or arrangement, whether written or unwritten, that provides for payments to a named executive officer at, or in connection with, the resignation, retirement or other termination of a named executive officer, or a change in control of the company or a change in the named executive officer’s responsibilities following a change in control.

 

Director Compensation

 

We do not have any standard arrangement for compensation of our directors for any services provided as director, including services for committee participation or for special assignments.

28
 

 

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

 

Securities Authorized under Equity Compensation Plans

 

We do not have any equity compensation plans.

 

Beneficial Ownership

 

The following tables set forth the beneficial ownership of our outstanding common stock by our management and each person or group known by us to own beneficially more than 5% of our voting stock. Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act, and generally includes voting or investment power with respect to the securities. Except as indicated by footnote, the persons named in the table below have sole voting power and investment power with respect to all shares of common stock shown as beneficially owned by them. The percentage of beneficial ownership is based on 250,556 shares of common stock outstanding as of August 1, 2014.

ITEM 13. CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS, AND DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE

 

Transactions with Related Parties

 

The following information summarizes transactions during the past two fiscal years that we have either engaged in or propose to engage in, involving our executive officers, directors, more than 5% stockholders, or immediate family members of these persons. These transactions were negotiated between related parties without “arms length” bargaining and, as a result, the terms of these transactions may be different than transactions negotiated between unrelated persons.

 

During the years ended May 31, 2014 and 2013, First Equity, a 20% stockholder, provided consulting, administrative and professional services and provided to, or paid on behalf of the Company, out-of-pocket costs. During the 2014 year First Equity billed the Company $18,400 for its services and advances. During the 2013 year First Equity billed the Company $4,300. As of May 31, 2014 First Equity’s account payable totals $68,825. Our board of directors acknowledged the validity and fairness of the services performed and the costs incurred, and approved the charges.

 

During the years ended May 31, 2009 and 2010, our Director and President, Greg L. Popp, loaned an aggregate of $23,500 to the Company in a series of loans. These funds were used for our operational expenses. On April 20, 2010, all of the loans were combined into one promissory note which carries interest at 8%, is not collateralized and matured at June 30, 2012. On June 1, 2013, Mr. Popp extended the due date of the note to June 30, 2015.

 

Director Independence

 

None of our directors are independent directors as defined by NASDAQ Stock Market Rule 5605(a)(2). This rule defines persons as “independent” who are neither officers nor employees of the company and have no relationships that, in the opinion of the board, would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out their responsibilities as directors.

 

 

ITEM 14. PRINCIPAL ACCOUNTING FEES AND SERVICES

 

Auditor Fees

 

The following table presents the aggregate fees billed for each of the last two fiscal years by our accounting firm, KLJ & Associates, LLP, Certified Public Accountants, in connection with the audit of our financial statements and other professional services.

   2014  2013
Audit fees  $7,500   $4,500 
Audit-related fees   0    0 
Tax fees   0    0 
All other fees  $0   $0 

 

Audit fees represent fees for professional services rendered by our principal accountant for the audit of our annual financial statements and review of the financial statements included in our Forms 10-Q or services that are normally provided by our principal accountant in connection with statutory and regulatory filings or engagements.

 

Audit-related fees represent professional services rendered for assurance and related services by the accounting firm that are reasonably related to the performance of the audit or review of our financial statements that are not reported under audit fees.

 

Tax fees represent professional services rendered by the accounting firm for tax compliance, tax advice, and tax planning.

 

30
 

All other fees represent fees billed for products and services provided by the accounting firm, other than the services reported for the other three categories.

 

Pre-approval Policies

 

We do not have an audit committee currently serving and as a result our board of directors performs the duties of an audit committee. Our board of directors will evaluate and approve in advance the scope and cost of the engagement of an auditor. We do not rely on pre-approval policies and procedures.
