Notes to the Interim Consolidated Financial Statements

(Unaudited – prepared by management)

(Expressed in United States Dollars)

March 31, 2017

 

NOTE 1.           NATURE AND CONTINUANCE OF OPERATIONS

 

VOIP-PAL.com, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in the state of Nevada in September, 1997 as All American Casting International, Inc. The Company’s registered office is located at 10900 NE 4th Street, Suite 2300, Bellevue, Washington in the United States of America.

 

Since March 2004, the Company has been developing technology and patents related to voice over internet protocol (VoIP) processes. All business activities prior to March 2004 have been abandoned and written off to deficit.

 

In December 2013, the Company completed the acquisition of Digifonica (International) Limited (“Digifonica”), a private company incorporated on September 7, 2004 in Gibraltar.

 

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the basis of a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and discharge of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company is in various stages of product development and continues to incur losses and, at March 31, 2017, had an accumulated deficit of $32,765,079 (September 30, 2016 - $31,636,143). The ability of the Company to continue operations as a going concern is dependent upon raising additional working capital, settling outstanding debts and generating profitable operations. These material uncertainties may cast significant doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Should the going concern assumption not continue to be appropriate, further adjustments to carrying values of assets and liabilities may be required. There can be no assurance that capital will be available as necessary to meet these continued developments and operating costs or, if the capital is available, that it will be on the terms acceptable to the Company. The issuances of additional stock by the Company may result in a significant dilution in the equity interests of its current shareholders. Obtaining commercial loans, assuming those loans would be available, will increase the Company’s liabilities and future cash commitments. If the Company is unable to obtain financing in the amounts and on terms deemed acceptable, its business and future success may be adversely affected.

 

Additionally, as the Company’s stated objective is to monetize its patent suite through the licensing or sale of its intellectual property (IP), the Company being forced to litigate or to defend its IP claims through litigation casts significant doubt on its future to continue as a going concern.  IP litigation is generally a costly process, and in the absence of revenue the Company must raise capital to continue its own defense and to validate its claims – in the event of a failure to defend its patent claims, either because of lack of funding, a court ruling against the Company or because of a protracted litigation process, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to raise additional capital to pay for an appeals process or a lengthy trial.  The outcome of any litigation process may have a significant adverse effect on the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

NOTE 2.           BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“US GAAP”).

 

NOTE 3.           SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a consolidated basis and include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary Digifonica. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated. As at March 31, 2017, Digifonica had no activities.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of these consolidated financial statements required management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates. Where estimates have been used financial results as determined by actual events could differ from those estimates.

NOTE 3.           SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT’D)

 

Cash

 

Cash consists of cash on hand and monies held in checking and savings accounts. The Company had $90,279 in cash on March 31, 2017 (September 30, 2016 - $121,115).

 

Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets, consisting of Intellectual VoIP communication patent properties are recorded at cost and amortized over the assets estimated life on a straight-line basis. Management considers factors such as remaining life of the patents, technological usefulness and other factors in estimating the life of the assets.

 

The carrying value of intangible assets are reviewed for impairment by management of the Company at least annually or upon the occurrence of an event which may indicate that the carrying amount may be less than its fair value. If impaired, the Company will write-down such impairment. In addition, the useful life of the intangible assets will be evaluated by management at least annually or upon the occurrence of an event which may indicate that the useful life may have changed.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

FASB ASC 820, Fair Value Measurement, defines fair value as the price that would be received upon sale of an asset or paid upon transfer of a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date and in the principal or most advantageous market for that asset or liability. The fair value should be calculated based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, not on assumptions specific to the entity.

 

The Company classifies financial assets and liabilities as held-for-trading, available-for-sale, held-to-maturity, loans and receivables or other financial liabilities depending on their nature. Financial assets and financial liabilities are recognized at fair value on their initial recognition, except for those arising from certain related party transactions which are accounted for at the transferor’s carrying amount or exchange amount.

 

Financial assets and liabilities classified as held-for-trading are measured at fair value, with gains and losses recognized in net income. Financial assets classified as held-to-maturity, loans and receivables, and financial liabilities other than those classified as held-for-trading are measured at amortized cost, using the effective interest method of amortization. Financial assets classified as available-for-sale are measured at fair value, with unrealized gains and losses being recognized as other comprehensive income until realized, or if an unrealized loss is considered other than temporary, the unrealized loss is recorded in income.

 

U.S. GAAP establishes a framework for measuring fair value under generally accepted accounting principles and enhances disclosures about fair value measurements. Fair value is defined as the amount that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (i.e., an exit price) in the principal 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 maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The standard describes the following 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:

 

Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and 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.

 

The fair value of cash is classified as Level 1 at March 31, 2017 and September 30, 2016.

 

The Company classifies its financial instruments as follows: Cash is classified as held for trading, and is measured at fair value. Accounts payable and accrued expenses are classified as other financial liabilities, and have a fair value approximating their carrying value, due to their short-term nature.

NOTE 3.           SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT’D)

 

Income Taxes

 

Deferred income taxes have been provided for temporary differences between financial statement and income tax reporting under the asset and liability method, using expected tax rates and laws that are expected to be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. A valuation allowance is provided when realization is not considered more likely than not.

 

The Company’s policy is to classify income tax assessments, if any, for interest expense and for penalties in general and administrative expenses. The Company’s income tax returns are subject to examination by the IRS and corresponding states, generally for three years after they are filed.

 

Loss per Common Share

 

Basic loss per share is calculated using the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during each period. Diluted income per share includes potentially dilutive securities such as outstanding options and warrants outstanding during each period. To calculate diluted loss per share the Company uses the treasury stock method and the If-converted method.

 

For the period ended March 31, 2017 and the year ended September 30, 2016 there were no potentially dilutive securities included in the calculation of weighted-average common shares outstanding.

 

Derivatives

 

We account for derivatives pursuant to ASC 815, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities. All derivative instruments are recognized in the consolidated financial statements and measured at fair value regardless of the purpose or intent for holding them. We determine fair value of warrants and other option type instruments based on option pricing models. The changes in fair value of these instruments are recorded in income or expense.

 

Stock-based compensation

 

The Company recognizes compensation expense for all stock-based payments made to employees, directors and others based on the estimated fair values of its common stock on the date of issuance.

 

The Company determines the fair value of the share-based compensation payments granted as either the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. If the fair value of the equity instruments issued is used, it is measured using the stock price and other measurement assumptions as of the earlier of either the date at which a commitment for performance to earn the equity instrument is reached or the date the performance is complete.

 

The Company recognizes compensation expense for stock awards with service conditions on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period, which is included in operations. Stock option expense is recognized over the option’s vesting period.

 

Concentrations of Credit Risk

 

The Company maintains cash at financial institutions, which at times, may be in excess of insured limits.

In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-15 “Presentation of Financial Statements-Going Concern.” The provisions of ASU No.2014-15 require management to assess an entity’s liability to continue as a going concern by incorporating and expanding upon certain principles that are currently in U.S. audit standards. Specifically, the amendments: (1) provide a definition of the term substantial doubt; (2) require evaluation of every reporting period including interim periods; (3) provide principles for considering the mitigating effect of management’s plans; (4) require certain disclosures when substantial doubt is alleviated as a result of consideration of management’s plans; (5) require an express statement and other disclosures when substantial doubt in not alleviated; and (6) require an assessment for a period of one year after the date that the financial statements are issued (or available to be issued).  The amendments in this ASU are effective for the annual period ending after December 15, 2016, and for annual periods and interim periods thereafter. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting this ASU on it’s consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 3.           SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT’D)

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements (cont’d)

 

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-17, Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes (“ASU 2015-17”). ASU 2015-17 requires companies to classify all deferred tax assets or liabilities as noncurrent on the balance sheet rather than separately disclosing deferred taxes as current and noncurrent. This standard is effective for the Company beginning on October 1, 2017 and can be applied either prospectively or retrospectively to all periods presented upon adoption. The standard is not expected to have any impact on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In January 2016, FASB issued a new standard to amend certain aspects of recognition, measurement, presentation, and disclosure of financial instruments. Most prominent among the amendments is the requirement for changes in fair value of equity investments, with certain exceptions, to be recognized through profit or loss rather than other comprehensive income. The new standard will be effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2018. The standard is not expected to have any impact on the Company’s financial statements.

 

In February 2016 FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842) which supersedes FASB ASC Topic 840, Leases (Topic 840) and provides principles for the recognition, measurement, presentation, and disclosure of leases for both lessees and the lessors. The new standard requires the lessees to apply a dual approach, classifying leases as either finance or operating leases based on the principle of whether or not the lease is effectively a financed purchase by the lessee. The classification will determine whether lease expense is recognized based on an effective interest method or on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease, respectively. A lessee is also required to record a right-of-use asset and a lease liability for all leases with a term of greater than twelve months regardless of classification. Leases with a term of twelve months or less will be accounted for similar to existing guidance for operating leases. The standard is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2018, with early adoption permitted upon issuance. When adopted, the Company does not expect this guidance to have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718), Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. Under ASU 2016-09, companies will no longer record excess tax benefits and certain tax deficiencies in additional paid in capital (“APIC”). Instead, they will record all excess tax benefits and tax deficiencies as income tax expense or benefit in the income statement and the APIC pools will be eliminated. In addition, ASU 2016-09 eliminates the requirement that excess tax benefits be realized before companies can recognize them. ASU 2016-09 also requires companies to present excess tax benefits as an operating activity on the statement of cash flows rather than as a financing activity. Furthermore, ASU 2016-09 will increase the amount an employer can withhold to cover income taxes on awards and still qualify for the exception to liability classification for shares used to satisfy the employer’s statutory income tax withholding obligation. An employer with a statutory income tax withholding obligation will now be allowed to withhold shares with the fair value up to the amount of taxes owed using the maximum statutory rate in the employee’s applicable jurisdiction(s). ASU 2016-09 requires a company to classify the cash paid to a tax authority when shares are withheld to satisfy its statutory income tax withholding obligation as a financing activity on the statement of cash flows. Under current U.S. GAAP, it is not specified how these cash flows should be classified. In addition, companies will now have to elect whether to account for forfeitures on share-based payments by (1) recognizing forfeiture awards as they occur or (2) estimating the number of awards expected to be forfeited and adjusting the estimate when it is likely to change, as in currently required. The amendments of this ASU are effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, with early adoption permitted but all of the guidance must be adopted in the same period. The adoption of this ASU had no material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued a new standard to replace the incurred loss impairment methodology in current U.S. GAAP with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses and requires consideration of a broader range of reasonable and supportable information to inform credit loss credit loss estimates. For trade and other receivables, loans and other financial instruments, the Company will be required to use a forward-looking expected loss model rather than the incurred loss model for recognizing credit losses which reflects losses that are probable. Credit losses relating to available for sale debt securities will also be recorded through an allowance for credit losses rather than as a reduction in the amortized cost basis of the securities. The new standard will be effective for the Company beginning October 1, 2020, with early adoption permitted. Application of the amendments is through a cumulative-effect adjustment to deficit as of the effective date. The Company is currently assessing the impact of the standard on its consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 10.       STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION

 

Stock Option Plan

 

In order to provide incentive to directors, officers, management, employees, consultants and others who provide services to the Company or any subsidiary (the “Service Providers”) to act in the best interests of the Company, and to retain such Service Providers, it was determined by the board of directors that the Company requires a stock option plan under which it is able to grant incentive stock options to such Service Providers. The Company put in place an incentive Stock Option Plan (the “Plan”) whereby the Company is authorized to issue up to 10% of its issued and outstanding share capital in options to purchase common shares of the Company. The maximum term of options granted under the Plan cannot exceed ten years, with vesting terms determined at the discretion of the Board of Directors.

 

During the period ended March 31, 2017, the Company granted options under the Plan to several of its consultants to purchase 3,450,000 common shares in the capital stock of the Company at an exercise price of $0.06 per common share for a period of five years from the date of grant. 2,700,000 of the options granted vest immediately and are exercisable as at March 31, 2017, with the balance to vest within one year of the date of grant.

 

The following table summarizes the Company’s stock option transactions:

 

   Number of options

 31,450,000   $0.06    4.68    18,700,000 

 

The following assumptions were used for the Black-Scholes valuation of stock options granted during the period ended March 31, 2017: risk-free rate of 1.25%, expected life of 5 years, annualized historical volatility of 112.0% and a dividend rate of 0%. Expected volatilities are based on historical volatility of the Company’s stock and other factors. The compensation cost that has been charged against income from options vested under the Plan for the period ended March 31, 2017 was $117,090 (2016 - $nil).

 

The weighted-average grant-date fair value of options granted during the period ended March 31, 2017 was $0.04 (2016 - $nil). The total intrinsic value of options exercised during the period ended March 31, 2017 was $nil (2016 - $nil).

CORPORATE HISTORY, OVERVIEW AND PRINCIPAL BUSINESS

 

VOIP-PAL.com Inc. (Voip-Pal”, the “Company”) was incorporated in the state of Nevada in September 1997 as All American Casting International, Inc. and changed its name to VOIP MDI.com in 2004 and subsequently to Voip-Pal.Com Inc. in 2006. Since March 2004, the Company has been in the development stage of becoming a VoIP re-seller, a provider of a proprietary transactional billing platform tailored to the points and air mile business, and a provider of anti-virus applications for smartphones. All business activities prior to March 2004 have been abandoned and written off to deficit.

 

In December 2013, the Company completed the acquisition of Digifonica (International) Limited, a private company incorporated on September 7, 2004 in Gibraltar.

 

Voip-Pal is a technical leader in the broadband Voice-over-Internet Protocol (“VoIP”) market with the ownership and continuing development of a portfolio of leading-edge VoIP Patents. Voip-Pal’s primary products are VoIP-related patented technology. The Company has spent several years testing and developing this technology. The Company is currently seeking to monetize the patents through a corporate transaction, an asset sale, or licensure of its products.

 

Voip-Pal’s intellectual property value is derived from ten issued USPTO patents. Voip-Pal inventions described in these patents provide the means to integrate VoIP services with any of the legacy telecommunications systems to create a seamless service using either legacy telephone numbers or IP addresses, and enhance the performance and value of VoIP implementations worldwide.

 

Voice over IP (Internet Protocol), or VoIP, has been and continues to be a green field for innovation that has spawned numerous inventions, greatly benefitting consumers large and small across the globe. VoIP is used in many places and by every modern telephony system vendor, network supplier, and retail and wholesale carrier.

REVENUES, COST OF REVENUES AND GROSS MARGIN

 

The Company had no revenues, cost of revenues or gross margin for the three and six month periods ending March 31, 2017 and 2016.

 

GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE EXPENSES

 

General and administrative expenses for the three months ending March 31, 2017 totaled $635,989 compared to $510,900 during the same period in 2016.  The increase in general and administrative expenses of $125,089, or 24% more than the previous year, was primarily due to higher legal and other consulting fees related to the patent lawsuits filed by the Company which were paid during the three-month period ended March 31, 2017.

 

General and administrative expenses for the six months ending March 31, 2017 totaled $1,134,041 compared to $1,059,281 during the same period in 2016. The decrease in general and administrative expenses of $138,691 or 11% less than the previous year, was primarily due to higher acquisition costs incurred by the Company during the previous period. Excluding the acquisition costs, the Company’s administrative costs increased $454,873 from the previous period. The increase in administrative expenses was primarily due to higher legal and other consulting fees related to the patent lawsuits filed by the Company which were paid during the six-month period ended March 31, 2017.

 

AMORTIZATION OF INTANGIBLE ASSETS

 

Amortization of intellectual VoIP communications patent properties for the three months ending March 31, 2017 totaled $34,548 compared to $25,186 during the same period in 2016. The increase in amortization expenses of $9,362, or 37% over the previous period was due to the full amortization reached on Intellectual VoIP patent intangible assets during the period.

 

Amortization of intellectual VoIP communications patent properties for the six months ending March 31, 2017 totaled $69,095 compared to $50,371 during the same period in 2016, The increase in amortization expenses of $18,724, or 37% over the previous period was due to the full amortization reached on Intellectual VoIP patent intangible assets during the period.

 

17

 

 

The Company follows GAAP (FAS 142) and is amortizing its intangibles over the remaining patent life of twelve (12) years. The Company evaluates its intangible assets annually and determines if the fair market value is less than its historical cost. If the fair market value is less, then impairment expense is recorded on the Company’s financial statements. The intangible assets on the financial statements of the Company relate primarily to the Company’s acquisition of Digifonica (International) Limited.

 

INTEREST EXPENSE

 

The Company had no financing or interest costs for the three or six month periods ending March 31, 2017 and 2016.

 

NET LOSS

 

The Company reported a net loss of $670,537 for the three months ended March 31, 2017 compared to a net loss of $536,086 for the same period in 2016.  The net loss increase of $134,451, or 25% over the same period in 2016 was due primarily to an increase in legal and other consulting fees and payments related to the patent lawsuits filed by the Company which were paid during the three-month period ended March 31, 2017.

 

The Company reported a net loss of $1, 128,926 for the six months ended March 31, 2017 compared to a net loss of $1,248,263 for the same period in 2016, The net loss decrease of $119,337, or -9% over the same period in 2016 was due primarily to the write down of acquisition cost of $500,000 in the previous period. Excluding the write-down, the Company would have incurred a net loss increase of $454,873 which is due primarily to an increase in legal and consulting fees and payments related to the patent lawsuits filed by the Company which were paid during the six-month period ended March 31, 2017.

 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES


As of March 31, 2017, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $32,765,079 as compared to an accumulated deficit of $28,874,214 at March 31, 2016. As of March 31, 2017, the Company had a working capital surplus of $6,277 as compared to a working capital surplus of $341,250 at March 31, 2016. The decrease in the Company’s working capital surplus of $334,973 was primarily due to an increase legal and consulting costs related to the Company’s patent lawsuits.

 

Net cash used by operations for the three months ending March 31, 2017 and 2016 was $473,840 and $629,065, respectively. The decrease in net cash used for the three months ending March 31, 2017 as compared to the three months ending March 31, 2016 was primarily due to a decrease in Subscriptions receivables.

 

Net cash used by operations for the six months ending March 31, 2017 and 2016 was $875,336 and $782,941, respectively. The increase in net cash used for the six months ending March 31, 2017 as compared to the six months ending March 31, 2016 was primarily due to an increase in legal and patent related costs related to the Company’s patent lawsuits.

 

Net cash used in investing activities for the three months ending March 31, 2017 and 2016 was $(Nil) and $(Nil). Net cash provided in financing activities for the three months ending March 31, 2017 and 2016 was $497,000 and $392,876, respectively. The increase in net cash provided by financing activities of $104,124 was primarily due to an increase in shares issued for cash during the period ended March 31, 2017.

 

Net cash used in investing activities for the six months ending March 31, 2017 and 2016 was $(Nil) and $144,409. The decrease in cash used in investing activities was due to increased expenditures on patents for the period ended March 31, 2016. Net cash provided in financing activities for the six months ending March 31, 2017 and 2016 was $844,500 and $398,876, respectively. The increase in net cash provided by financing activities of $445,624 was primarily due to an increase in shares issued for cash during the period ended March 31, 2017.

 

Liquidity

 

The Company primarily finances its operations from cash received through the exercise of convertible loans from investors and through the payment of stock-based compensation. The Company believes its resources are adequate to fund its operations for the next 12 months.

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

Performance Bonus Payable

 

In February 2016, the board of directors of the Company authorized the Company to provide a performance bonus of up to 3% of the capital stock of the Company by way of the issuance of Rule 144 restricted common shares from its treasury to a yet undetermined group of related and non-related parties upon the successful completion of a sale or major licensing transaction, defined as a bonusable event. In order to provide maximum flexibility to the Company with respect to determining what constitutes such a bonusable event, the level of Performance Bonus payable, and who may qualify to receive a pro-rata share of such a Performance Bonus, the Company authorized full discretion to the Board in making such determinations. Since the Performance Bonus is only available upon the sale or a major licensing event, this potential transaction would not have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity or capital expenditures.

 

18

 

 

There are no other 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 that are material to investors.

 

Impact of Inflation

 

Management believes that inflation has not had a material impact on our results of operations for the three months ending March 31, 2017. We cannot assure that future inflation will not have an adverse impact on our operating results and financial condition.

Item 4.Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of March 31, 2017. In making this assessment, management used the criteria established in Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission, or COSO. The COSO framework summarizes each of the components of a company’s internal control system, including (i) the control environment, (ii) risk assessment, (iii) control activities, (iv) information and communication, and (v) monitoring. In management’s assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f)) as required by Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(c), our management concluded as of the end of the fiscal period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q that our internal control over financial reporting has not been effective. The company intends, as the company’s finances improve, to hire additional accounting staff and implement additional controls.

 

As defined by Auditing Standard No. 5, “An Audit of Internal Control Over Financial Reporting that is Integrated with an Audit of Financial Statements and Related Independence Rule and Conforming Amendments,” established by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (“PCAOB”), a material weakness is a deficiency or combination of deficiencies that results more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected. In connection with the assessment described above, management identified the following control deficiencies that represent material weaknesses as of March 31, 2017:

 

1)Lack of segregation of duties. At this time, our resources and size prevent us from being able to employ sufficient resources to enable us to have adequate segregation of duties within our internal control system. Management will periodically reevaluate this situation.

 

2)Lack of an independent audit committee. Although the Board of Directors serves as an audit committee it is not comprised solely of independent directors. We may establish an audit committee comprised solely of independent directors when we have sufficient capital resources and working capital to attract qualified independent directors and to maintain such a committee.

 

3)Insufficient number of independent directors. At the present time, our Board of Directors does not consist of a majority of independent directors, a factor that is counter to corporate governance practices as set forth by the rules of various stock exchanges.

 

Our management determined that these deficiencies constituted material weaknesses. Due to a lack of financial resources, we are not able to, and do not intend to, immediately take any action to remediate these material weaknesses. We will not be able to do so until we acquire sufficient financing to do so. We will implement further controls as circumstances, cash flow, and working capital permit. Notwithstanding the assessment that our ICFR was not effective and that there were material weaknesses as identified in this report, we believe that our financial statements fairly present our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the years covered thereby in all material respects.

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act are recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Chief Executive Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Limitations on the Effectiveness of Internal Controls

 

Our management does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will necessarily prevent all fraud and material error. Our disclosure controls and procedures are designed to provide reasonable assurance of achieving our objectives and our Chief Executive Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective at that reasonable assurance level. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within our company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the internal control. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions. Over time, control may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting during the quarter ended March 31, 2017 that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect such controls.
