Note Regarding Forward Looking Statements

 

Except for statements of historical fact, certain information contained herein constitutes ‘forward looking statements’. Forward looking statements address our current plans, intentions, beliefs and expectations and are statements of our expected future economic performance. Statements containing terms like ‘will’, ‘believes’, ‘does not believe’, ‘plans’, ‘expects’, ‘intends’, ‘estimates’, ‘anticipates’, ‘may’ and other phrases of similar meaning or the negative or other variations of these words or other comparable words or phrases are considered to imply uncertainty and are forward looking statements.

 

Such forward looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results or achievements of the Company to be materially different from any future results or achievements of the Company expressed or implied by such forward looking statements. Such factors include, but are not limited to changes in economic conditions, government regulations, contract requirements and abilities, behavior of existing and new competitor companies and other risks and uncertainties discussed in this annual Form 10-K report.

 

We cannot guarantee our future results, level of activity, performance or achievements. Neither I nor any other person assumes responsibility for the accuracy and completeness of these forward looking statements. We are under no duty to update any of the forward looking statements after the date of this report.

Risk Factors

 

Investment in our common stock involves a high degree of risk. Prospective investors should carefully consider the following risk factors in addition to other information in this annual report before purchasing our common stock.

 

Because we have a net loss from operations of $580,344 for the year ended December 31, 2019 and have accumulated losses of $14,365,785 from inception, we face a risk of insolvency and we remain dependent on equity and debt financing to help pay operating costs and to help cover operating losses.  Business financing is being pursued but there is no financing in place at the time of this filing.

 

The Company had previously been dependent on contract manufacturing which did not deliver long term positive financial results, as had been expected. We are, at present, working to develop a business area in the aerospace sector. Our future is uncertain if we fail to develop this business area. Please also refer to our December 31, 2019 year end audited financial statements and notes thereto.

 

The auditor’s report for our December 31, 2019 consolidated financial statements includes an additional paragraph that identifies conditions which raise doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The audited financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

PART I

 

Item 1. Description of Business

 

The business of the Company is primarily that of a holding company with subsidiaries. The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, National Five Holding Ltd, held a 60 percent share interest (now increased to 95%) in Northstar Sealand Enterprises Ltd (“NSEL”). NSEL has been incorporated to pursue a manufacturing, marketing, sales and maintenance opportunity in the aviation industry and is in negotiations with a major aviation company.

 

Corporate History

 

The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, Northstar Network Ltd., (NNL), had carried out defense, aerospace and homeland security contract manufacturing. NNL has been discontinued due to insufficient working capital, quality issues with suppliers and design changes made by the customer.

 

Our second wholly owned subsidiary, Northstar Technical Inc., (NTI), had been involved in underwater sonar sensors primarily related to the fishing industry. NTI has been discontinued due to several issues in the commercial fishing industry. The time taken for new technology developments using underwater communicating techniques was long. The timeframe for market introduction was also lengthy. Although NTI’s sonar system was initially a success in a changing industry, NTI could not keep up with the larger competitors’ products. The Company did not consummate the signing of a Letter of Intent to acquire a development stage company specializing in advanced sonar technologies and systems and was discontinued.

 

Homeland Security and Military Defense:

The Company had expected that design and manufacture of homeland security and anti-terrorism systems would have grown rapidly as the United States Department of Homeland Security and the United States Navy had planned to ramp up efforts to protect ports, other onshore high value assets and ships. In partnership with a division of Lockheed Martin Corp, we responded to a Request for Quote by the USN and they gave us a high assessment rating. We sold several systems but the DHS took the USN’s budget meant to purchase our systems and used the funds for the war in Iraq. This also happened the following year and subsequently the USN cancelled the program.

 

DESIGN ENGINEERING AND CONTRACT MANUFACTURING

 

The Company has considerable experience in contract manufacturing and has produced electronic and mechanical systems under contract to defense and aerospace companies. Products were built according to designs provided by our customers for whom the Company provided production engineering, contract manufacturing of components, sourcing and procurement of parts, assembly of full systems, testing and shipping.


1


 

For several customers, Northstar was carrying out electronic and mechanical design work.

 

The Company’s former customers included Lockheed Martin MS2, Lockheed Martin Canada, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics and L-3.

 

NEW DIRECTION

 

The Company continued to expend considerable efforts during the past year in developing operational knowledge of a particular industrial single engine Turbo Prop airplane., conducting research into Supply Chain Management Systems applicable to this project, carrying out market research in different geographical areas, in conducting research into the most efficient procedures to obtain the Type Certificate for the airplane and in developing the most cost effective ways to carry out production of the airplane as well as strategies to acquire systems and technologies.

 

We continue with the intention to build our own systems in the civilian aviation sector. We believe that this affords improved control over the business outcomes compared to the contract manufacturing business.

 

The Company is working to obtain worldwide rights to a single engine Turbo Prop airplane with industrial applications. If successful, we intend to manufacture and market the airplane internationally and provide Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) services in close proximity to customers. The Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, National Five Holding Ltd, is a 95% shareholder of Northstar Sealand Enterprises Ltd (NSEL). NSEL, has experience in working on certified commercial aircraft and government military contracts, and has access to an established aircraft assembly and parts manufacturing facility.

 

Airplane Applications

The airplanes will be designed to carry out Rapid Response Forest Fire Fighting and Agriculture Crop Dusting. We are looking into other applications including Cloud Seeding.

 

Marketing

NSEL has started market assessments in international markets where there appears to be volume sales potential for the single engine airplane. We have also begun to explore potential marketing partnerships with other aviation companies. Projections made by NSEL show a potential growth in demand for suitable single engine aircraft, subject to economic factors. Preliminary plans have been started on methods to achieve market presence, including direct sales, magazine ads, web site, and participation in trade shows. Our efforts have been somewhat curtailed by a lack of financing.

 

Technology Protection

The Company currently owns no proprietary technology requiring protection with respect to its activities. It intends to acquire proprietary technology and, if successful, intends to put appropriate protection measures in place.

 

Need for Government Approvals

If the Company is successful in acquiring the rights to the aforementioned single engine airplane, there will be required government approvals applicable to our expected future activities.

 

The approvals would likely be for an in-country Type Certificate and other certificates, as required, in other countries where the airplane would be marketed.

 

Effect of Existing or Probable Government Regulations

If successful with the acquisition of the rights to the single engine airplane, the Company intends to abide by the applicable regulations in each country where it intends to carry out marketing and sales. The costs of meeting the regulatory requirements can be high and the Company will do its best efforts to procure the funds required.

 

Costs and Effects of Compliance with Environmental Laws

The Company incurred no costs or adverse effects in its compliance with any environmental laws.

PRODUCTION

 

The Company has experience in carrying out work requiring multiple subcontractors to perform specialized tasks. The ability to integrate the work of multiple components to create a complete system will be NSEL’s main area of business - system integration.

EMPLOYEES

 

As of December 31, 2019 the Company has a team of experienced consultants who provide administration, marketing and engineering services to the Company.

 

PUBLIC INFORMATION

 

The Company electronically files with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) all its reports, including but not limited to its annual and quarterly reports. The SEC maintains an internet site (http://www.sec.gov) that contains reports and other information regarding issuers that do file electronically. The Company maintains a web site address at www.northstarelectronics.com

 

Item 2. Description of Properties

 

The Company maintains an office at:

 

1000-355 Burrard St., Vancouver BC Canada  V6C 2G8

 

Item 3. Legal Proceedings

 

There are no known undisclosed legal filings registered or contemplated against the Company.

 

The Company is liable to repay CAD$3,100,221 in assistance received from the Atlantic Canada Opportunity Agency (ACOA) by the Company’s two former subsidiaries, Northstar Technical Inc. (NTI) and Northstar Network Ltd. (NNL). The Company, for reasons of expediency, became a cosigner of the agreements the subsidiaries had with ACOA. Subsequently, ACOA claimed that NTI and NNL were delinquent in their payments and, eventually, in early 2013 ACOA launched legal action in Newfoundland where the two subsidiaries had operated. The Company was not in a financial position at the time to launch a defense and ACOA received a judgment unopposed. The Company intends to approach ACOA with an offer of settlement within the foreseeable future.

 

Item 4. Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders

 

There have been no changes since the previous filing. The Company has filed with the SEC an SB-1 registration statement April 2000, an S-8 registration November 2000 and quarterly reports (form 10QSB) for June and September 2000 and for March, June and September 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007, form 10Q’s for March, June and September 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 - 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 and annual reports (form 10KSB) for December 31, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007 and form 10K for 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and the years 2012 thru 2014 and for 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018.

Item 5. Market for Registrant’s Common Equity and Related Stockholder Matters

 

No change since previous filing.

 

Item 6. Management’s Discussion and Analysis or Plan of Operation

 

Certain statements in this report and elsewhere (such as in other filings by the Company with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), press releases, presentations by the Company of its management and oral statements) may constitute "forward-looking statements". Words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," and "should," and variations of these words and similar expressions, are intended to identify these forward-looking statements. Actual results may materially differ from any forward-looking statements.  Factors that might cause or contribute to such differences include, among others, competitive pressures and constantly changing technology and market acceptance of the Company's products and services. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly release the result of any revisions to these forward-looking statements, which may be made to reflect events or circumstances after the date hereof or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

 

The following discussion, comparison and analysis should be read in conjunction with the Company’s accompanying audited consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018 and the notes related thereto. The discussion of results, causes and trends should not be construed to infer conclusions that such results, causes or trends necessarily will continue in the future.

During the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, the Company continued its recovery from the loss of its contracts, continued to improve its internal systems and continued working toward attaining suitable new contracts.

 

A shortage of working capital in support of operations has been an issue as the Company took measures to provide that support. Sufficient capital was not raised and consequent business operations were kept at a minimum.

 

The Company experienced operating losses of $580,344 for 2019, and $257,946 for 2018 while maintaining an office and continuing to pursue its single engine aircraft opportunity.

 

Discontinued NETMIND operations: the Company was unable to finance its operations and could not attract personnel to manufacture and market the NETMIND product.

Defense Sonar Development Contract Opportunity

Discontinued

 

Contract Manufacturing and System Integration

Although the Company remains open to carrying out work in contract manufacturing and system integration, we are not actively pursuing contracts at this time in those areas.

 

Results of Operations

 

Nil revenue was generated in the years 2019 and 2018 resulting in negligible cash flow. The Company generated $0 in contract and $0 sales revenues during these years.

 

During 2019 the Company incurred costs of $39,983 ($137,435 during 2018) on market assessments, type certificate matters, supply chain management planning, quality control, first assembly plans, follow-on production plans, and maintenance, repair and overall planning related to the acquisition of the worldwide rights to the single engine industrial Turbo Prop airplane.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

The Company used cash in operations of $(130,570) in 2019 compared to cash used by operations of $(127,672) in 2018 and $(47,140) in 2017.

 

In 2019 the Company raised equity financing of $nil. In 2018 the Company raised equity financing of $282,065.

 

The Company’s working capital and capital requirements will depend on many factors, including the ability of the Company to obtain aircraft sales in order to generate sufficient funds to cover the current level of operating expenses. During the most recent fiscal year (2019) the Company increased its current debt by $449,774 (2018 increased by $128,899). The Company is attempting to negotiate a secure equity financing in the short term.

 

The Company is liable to repay CAD$3,100,221 in assistance received from the Atlantic Canada Opportunity Agency (ACOA) by the Company’s two former subsidiaries, Northstar Technical Inc. (NTI) and Northstar Network Ltd. (NNL). The Company, for reasons of expediency, became a cosigner of the agreements the subsidiaries had with ACOA. Subsequently, ACOA claimed that NTI and NNL were delinquent in their payments and, eventually, in early 2013 ACOA launched legal action in Newfoundland where the two subsidiaries had operated. The Company was not in a financial position at the time to launch a defense and ACOA received a judgment unopposed. The Company intends to approach ACOA with a reasonable offer of settlement.

 

The availability of sufficient future funds will depend to an extent on the timing of the expected acquisition of the rights to the single engine Turbo Prop airplane. Accordingly, the Company will be required to issue securities to finance start-up and working capital requirements for the expected new aviation business and ongoing general business expansion. There can be no assurance whether or not such future financings will be available or on satisfactory terms.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

To the shareholders and the board of directors of Northstar Electronics, Inc.

 

Opinion on the Consolidated Financial Statements

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Northstar Electronics, Inc. (the "Company") as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, the related consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss, changes in stockholders' deficit and cash flows, for the years then ended, and the related notes and schedules (collectively referred to as the "financial statements"). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2019 and 2018, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Going Concern

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company has not generated revenues since inception, has incurred losses in developing its business, and further losses are anticipated.  The Company requires additional funds to meet its obligations and the costs of its operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  Management’s plans in this regard are described in Note 1.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Basis for Opinion

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company's financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) ("PCAOB") and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. As part of our audits we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting 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 in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB.

 

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

NORTHSTAR ELECTRONICS, INC.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

Years Ended December 31, 2019 and 2018

(US Dollars)

 

1. NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND GOING CONCERN

 

Northstar Electronics Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated on May 11, 1998 in the state of Delaware. The Company is doing research and development on single engine aircrafts for business use.

 

The Company's business activities are conducted principally in Canada. However, the financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) with all figures translated into United States dollars for financial reporting purposes.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which assumes the Company will be able to continue as a going-concern and contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. For the year ended December 31, 2019 the Company incurred a net loss of $580,344 (2018: $257,946) and had a working capital deficiency of $5,339,827 (2018: $4,759,483). Continuation as a going concern is dependent upon the ability of the Company to obtain the necessary financing to meet its obligations and pay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due and ultimately upon its ability to achieve profitable operations. The outcome of these matters cannot be predicted with any certainty at this time and raise substantial doubt that the Company will be able to continue as a going concern. These consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to the amounts and classification of assets and liabilities that may be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. Management intends to obtain additional funding by issuing debt and equity financing.

 

2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

a. Basis of consolidation

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its controlled subsidiary, National Five Holding Ltd, which was inactive during the years ended December 31, 2019 and 2018.

 

b. Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents consist of commercial accounts, trust accounts and interest-bearing bank deposit. Items are considered to be cash equivalents if the original maturity is three months or less.

 

c. Research and development

Research and development costs are expensed to operations as incurred.

 

d. Foreign currency translation

The functional currencies of the Company and its subsidiary were determined as the US dollar, which is the currency of their primary economic environment. Amounts incurred in Canadian dollars are translated into the functional currency as follows:

 

(i)Monetary assets and liabilities at the rate of exchange in effect as at the balance sheet date; 

(ii)Non-monetary assets and liabilities at the exchange rates prevailing at the time of the acquisition of the assets or assumption of the liabilities; and 

(iii)Revenues and expenditures at rates approximating the average rate of exchange for the year. 

 

e. Use of estimates

The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenditures during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates.


11


 

2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

f. Income taxes

Deferred income taxes are reported for timing differences between items of income or expense reported in the financial statements and those reported for income tax purposes in accordance with ASC 740, “Income Taxes”, which requires the use of the asset/liability method of accounting for income taxes.  Deferred income taxes and tax benefits are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases, and for tax losses and credit carry-forwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The Company provides for deferred taxes for the estimated future tax effects attributable to temporary differences and carry-forwards when realization is more likely than not.

 

g. Basic and diluted net loss per share

The Company computes net income (loss) per share in accordance with ASC 260, “Earnings per Share”. ASC 260 requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) on the face of the income statement. Basic EPS is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method and convertible preferred stock using the if-converted method.  In computing diluted EPS, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants.  Diluted EPS excluded all dilutive potential shares if their effect is anti-dilutive.

 

h. Segments of an enterprise and related information

ASC 280, “Segment Reporting” establishes guidance for the way that public companies report information about operating segments in annual financial statements and requires reporting of selected information about operating segments in interim financial statements issued to the public. It also establishes standards for disclosures regarding products and services, geographic areas and major customers. ASC 280 defines operating segments as components of a company about which separate financial information is available that is evaluated regularly by the chief operating decision maker in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance.

 

i. Fair value measurements

The Company adopted ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements. ASC 820 provides a definition of fair value, establishes a hierarchy for measuring fair value under generally accepted accounting principles and requires certain disclosures about fair values used in the financial statements. ASC 820 defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the primary or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value under ASC 820 must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The standard describes a fair value hierarchy based on three levels of inputs, of which the first two are considered observable and the last unobservable, that may be used to measure fair value, which are the following:

 

Level 1 - Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

 

Level 2 - Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

 

Level 3 - Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

 

j. Comparative figures

Certain comparative figures have been adjusted to conform to the current year’s presentation.


12


 

2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

 

k. Recently adopted accounting pronouncements

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842). Topic 842 is effective for public companies for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The new standard establishes a right-of-use ("ROU") model that requires a lessee to record a ROU asset and a lease liability, measured on a discounted basis, on the balance sheet for all leases with terms longer than 12 months. Leases are classified as either finance or operating, with classification affecting the pattern of expense recognition in the statement of income. Originally, entities were required to adopt ASU 2016-02 using a modified retrospective approach, which required prior periods to be presented under this new standard with certain practical expedients available.

 

However, in July 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-11, Leases (Topic 842): Targeted Improvements, which allows entities the option of recognizing the cumulative effect of applying the new standard as an adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the year of adoption while continuing to present all prior periods under previous lease accounting guidance. The Company adopted Topic 842 as of January 1, 2019 which did not result in any impact on the Company’s financial statements as the Company did not have leases with terms longer than 12 months.

 

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board or other authoritative standards groups with future effective dates are either not applicable or are not expected to be significant to the financial statements of the Company.

 

3. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

Fair values

The carrying values of accounts payable, loans payable, due to director and legal liability approximate their fair values because of the short maturity of these financial instruments.

 

Interest rate risk

The Company is not exposed to significant interest rate risk due to the fixed rates of interest on its monetary assets and liabilities.

 

Credit risk

The Company is exposed to credit risk with respect to its cash.  The Company deposits cash with a high credit quality financial institution as determined by rating agencies.

 

Currency risk

The Company is subject to currency risk as certain of the assets and liabilities are denominated in Canadian dollars.  The exchange rate conversion to US dollars may vary from time to time.

 

Liquidity risk

Liquidity risk is the risk that an entity will encounter difficulty in meeting obligations associated with its financial liabilities.  The Company is reliant upon related parties and share issuance as its sources of cash.  The Company has received financing from related parties and share issuances in the past; however, there is no assurance that it will be able to do so in the future.

7. LEGAL LIABILITY

 

During 2000 to 2008, the Company’s former subsidiaries Northstar Technical Inc. (“NTI”) and Northstar Network Ltd. (“NNL”) received funding from Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (“ACOA”) to fund their projects. In 2013, ACOA filed claims against NTI, NNL and the Company for repayments of advances due to events of default. The advances and interests ACOA claimed totaled $3,079,475 CAD ($2,257,255). In accordance with the agreements signed between NTI, NNL and the Company, the Company was jointly and severally liable for the obligations. Further, the claim amount bears a daily interest of CAD $358 from February 15, 2013 to settlement. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company accrued interest in the amount of $98,456 (2018: $100,834).

The Company has adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes” - an interpretation of SFAS 109. (FIN 48), as codified in ASC 740. ASC 740 addresses the determination of whether tax benefits claimed or expected to be claimed on a tax return should be recorded in the financial statements. Under ASC 740, the Company may recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position only if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position. The tax benefits recognized in the financial statements from such a position would be measured based on the largest benefit that has a greater than fifty percent likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement. ASC 740 also provides guidance on de-recognition of income tax assets and liabilities, classification of current and deferred income tax assets and liabilities, and accounting for interest and penalties associated with tax positions.

 

The Company did not file its U.S. federal income tax returns, including, without limitation, information returns on Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) Form 5471, Information Return of U.S. Persons With Respect to Certain Foreign Corporations for the years ended December 31, 2007 through 2019. Failure to furnish any information with respect to any foreign business entity required, within the time prescribed by the IRS, subjects the Company to certain civil penalties.

 

The Company did not file the information reports for the years ended December 31, 2007 through 2019 concerning its interest in foreign bank accounts on TDF 90-22.1, “Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts” (“FBARs”). For not complying with the FBAR reporting and recordkeeping requirements, the Company is potentially subject to civil penalties up to $10,000 for each of its foreign bank accounts. During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company accrued $50,000 on potential penalty for failure to file the form TDF 90-22.1. In addition, because the Company did not generate any income in the United States or otherwise have any U.S. taxable income, the Company does not believe that it owes U.S. federal income taxes in respect to any transactions that the Company or any of its subsidiaries may have engaged in through December 31, 2019. However, there can be no assurance that the IRS will agree with the position, and therefore the Company ultimately could be held liable for U.S. federal income taxes, interest and penalties.

10. COMMON STOCK

 

During the year ended December 31, 2019, the Company did not issue any common shares.

Management's Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act).

 

Framework used by Management to Evaluate the Effectiveness of Internal Controls over Financial Reporting

 

I maintain internal 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 and communicated to our executive officers to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure within certain policies and procedures. These 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 December 31, 2019 management has relied on the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO), an Internal Control - Integrated Framework issued in 1992, to evaluate the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Management’s Assessment of the Effectiveness of Internal Controls over Financial Reporting as of December 31, 2019

 

Management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting and determined that our internal control over financial reporting was effective as of December 31, 2019.

This annual report 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 temporary rules of the SEC that permit the Company to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

 

Factors Considered in Determining Effectiveness of Internal Controls and Procedures

 

Our President/Chief Executive Officer/Chief Financial Officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of our internal controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) as of December 31, 2016.

Our internal controls over financial reporting are designed by, or under the supervision of, our President/Chief Executive Officer/Chief Financial Officer, or persons performing similar functions, and effected by our board of directors, management and other personnel, and 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. Our internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, that our receipts, expenditures and business transactions are being made in accordance with authorizations of our management and directors and that all of our reporting obligations are met.

 

Management’s Assessment of the Effectiveness of Disclosure Controls over Financial Reporting as of December 31, 2018

 

Management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure control over financial reporting and determined that our disclosure control over financial reporting was effective as of December 31, 2019. In the future, management will review the form of the 10-K to ensure that the affirmations meet the disclosure affirmation requirements and the internal control affirmation requirements.
