QUANTUM MATERIAL CORP.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

December 31, 2014

(Unaudited)

 

Note 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission for interim financial statements. Accordingly, our interim statements do not include all of the information and disclosures required for our annual financial statements. In the opinion of our management, the consolidated financial statements contain all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring adjustments, considered necessary for a fair presentation of these interim results. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2014. The results for the three and six months ended December 31, 2014 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the full year ending June 30, 2015.

Since November 4, 2008, the Company has changed its business plans and is no longer intending to pursue the mining of mineral rights located in Nevada. The Company intends to pursue the business plans of its subsidiary, Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc. (“Solterra”).  The following is a brief business overview of Solterra.

 

Solterra   is a start-up solar technology and quantum dot manufacturing firm which was founded by Stephen Squires. Mr. Squires perceives an opportunity to acquire a significant amount of both quantum dot and solar photovoltaic market share by commercializing a low cost quantum dot processing technology and a low cost quantum dot based third generation photovoltaic technology/solar cell, pursuant to an exclusive license agreement with William Marsh Rice University (“Rice University” or “Rice”).  Our objective is to become the first bulk manufacture of high quality tetrapod quantum dots and the first solar cell manufacturer to be able to offer a solar electricity solution that competes on a non-subsidized basis with the price of retail electricity in key markets in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

 

Going Concern

The Company recorded losses from continuing operations in the current period presented and has a history of losses, resulting in an accumulated deficit and negative net worth. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to reverse negative operating trends, raise additional capital, and obtain debt financing.

Management has revised its business strategy to include expansion into other lines of business. In conjunction with the anticipated new revenue streams, management is currently negotiating new debt and equity financing, the proceeds from which would be used to settle outstanding debts at more favorable terms, to finance operations, and to develop its business plans. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to raise capital, obtain debt financing, or improve operating results sufficiently to continue as a going concern.

The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

Note 2. Derivatives and Fair Value

The Company has evaluated the application of ASC 815 to the Convertible Note issued November 4, 2008.  Based on the guidance in ASC 815, the Company concluded these instruments were required to be accounted for as derivatives as of July 1, 2009 due to the down round protection feature on the conversion price and the exercise price.  The Company records the fair value of these derivatives on its balance sheet at fair value with changes in the values of these derivatives reflected in the statements of operations as “Gain (loss) on derivative liabilities.”  These derivative instruments are not designated as hedging instruments under ASC 815 and are disclosed on the balance sheet under Derivative Liabilities.

ASC 825-10 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 principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 825-10 also establishes a fair value hierarchy which requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 825-10 describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:  Level 1   – Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;   Level 2 – Observable inputs other than Level 1 prices, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities; and   Level 3 – Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are financial instruments whose values are determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies, or similar techniques, as well as instruments for which the determination of fair value requires significant judgment or estimation. The Company’s Level 3 liabilities consist of the derivative liabilities associated with the November 4, 2008 note.  At June 30, 2012, all of the Company’s derivative liabilities were categorized as Level 3 fair value assets. If the inputs used to measure the financial assets and liabilities fall within more than one level described above, the categorization is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement of the instrument.

Level 3 Valuation Techniques

Financial assets are considered Level 3 when their fair values are determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies or similar techniques and at least one significant model assumption or input is unobservable.  Level 3 financial liabilities consist of the derivative liabilities for which there is no current market for these securities such that the determination of fair value requires significant judgment or estimation.  At the date of the original transaction, we valued the convertible note that contains down round provisions using a lattice model, with the assistance of a valuation consultant, for which management understands the methodologies. This model incorporates transaction details such as the Company’s stock price, contractual terms, maturity, risk free rates, as well as assumptions about future financings, volatility, and holder behavior as of July 1, 2009.  Using assumptions, consistent with the original valuation, the Company has subsequently used the Black-Scholes model for calculating the fair value, as of June 30, 2014 and 2013.   The fair value of the derivatives as of July 1, 2009 upon implementation of ASC 815-40-15 was estimated by management to be $495,912.  As part of implementing ASC 815-40-14 the Company decreased the accumulated deficit by $162,643 and decreased additional paid in capital by $212,184 and increased the discount on the convertible debenture by $446,371.  The adjustment to the accumulated deficit was a result of the interest expense recorded in connection with the original derivative liability and the reversal of prior amortization expense, and the change in fair value of the derivative liability as of July 1, 2009.

Each Debenture originally had a term of three years maturing on November 4, 2011 bearing interest at the rate of 8% per annum and is prepayable by Quantum Materials Corp at any time without penalty, subject to the Debenture holders’ conversion rights.  In 2011, the Company obtained annual one year extension of the maturity date of the Debentures through November 4, 2014. In partial consideration of such a loan extension, the Company agreed to issue to the Debenture holders warrants to purchase an aggregate of 2,000,000 shares of Common Stock exercisable at $.10 per share. These Warrants contain cashless exercise provisions in the event that there is no current registration statement filed. The maturity date was extended to November 4, 2014 in June 2013 and the conversion price per share was lowered as described below.

In recognition of the 3,525,000 shares issued at origination, the Company recorded a discount of $1,155,826.  The discount is made up of two components: $577,913 related to the discount for the relative fair value of the shares issued; and $577,913 related to a beneficial conversion feature. The discount was amortized over the 3 year life of the debenture, using the interest rate method and recorded as interest expense.   Each Debenture is convertible at the option of each Lender into Quantum Materials Corp’s Common Stock (the “Debenture Shares”, which together with the Restricted Shares shall collectively be referred to as the “Securities”) at a conversion price of $.2667 per share (the “Conversion Price”).   In October 2010, the conversion price was decreased to $0.12 per share and in June 2013, the conversion price was lowered to $.06 per share.

The Registration Rights Agreement requires Quantum Materials Corp to register the resale of the Securities within certain time limits and to be subject to certain penalties in the event Quantum Materials Corp fails to timely file the Registration Statement, fails to obtain an effective Registration Statement or, once effective, to maintain an effective Registration Statement until the Securities are saleable pursuant to Rule 144 without volume restriction or other limitations on sale.  The Debentures are secured by the assets of Quantum Materials Corp and are guaranteed by Solterra as Quantum Materials Corp’s subsidiary. To date, no registration statement has been filed by the Company or demanded by the Debenture Holders.

 

On June 30, 2014, $1 million of the Debentures were converted into 16,666,667 common shares. The remaining $500,000 of Debentures was converted into 8,333,333 of common shares upon the due on November 4, 2014, converted at $.06 per share.  The Company recorded the conversion at the fair market value of the shares at the date of conversion, off-set by the reduction of the derivative liability.

 

The Transaction Documents include a Stock Pledge Agreement pursuant to which Stephen Squires, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, had pledged 20,000,000 shares of our Common Stock to the Debenture holders (the “Holders”). The 20,000,000 shares which were the subject of a Pledge Agreement were released to Mr. Squires following the debt conversion described above.  

 

The Company has also issued shares, on a quarterly basis, for interest that has accrued on the outstanding debt.

 

In accounting for the above convertible debentures, the Company has recognized a derivative liability associated with the conversion feature, in the amount of $0 and $1,871,337, as of December 31, 2014 and June 30, 2014, respectively.

Business Overview

 

QMC is a nanotechnology company specializing in the design, development, production and supply of tetrapod quantum dots (“TQDs”), a high performance variant of quantum dots, for a range of applications in the life sciences, optoelectronics, photovoltaics, lighting, security ink and sensor sectors of the market. QMC owns 100% of Solterra Renewable Technologies, Inc. (“Solterra”), an operating subsidiary that is focused on the photovoltaic (solar cell) market. 

  

Quantum dots are tiny nanoparticles of a semiconductor material which emit light, or fluoresce, when excited with energy. The color of light emitted varies depending on the size of the quantum dot so that photonic emissions can be tuned by the creation of quantum dots of different sizes. Their unique properties as highly efficient, next generation semiconductors have led to the use of quantum dots in a range of electronic and other applications, including in the biomedical, display and lighting industries. Quantum dots also have applications in solar cells, where their characteristics enable conversion of light energy into electricity, with the potential for significantly higher efficiencies and lower costs than existing technologies, thereby creating the opportunity for a step change in the solar energy industry through the use of quantum dots in printed photovoltaic cells.

 

The Company has the exclusive license to a patented chemical process that permits it to produce high performance, heavy metal-free TQDs using a lower cost and environmentally friendly solvent for greater manufacturing flexibility.  The Company has developed a proprietary method that it believes will allow it to mass produce consistent quantities of TQDs in a continuous process at lower costs than other existing processes, and has filed a provisional patent application on same. It also has the exclusive license to a patented screen printing technique for manufacture of quantum dot enhanced electronic displays and other electronic components. The Company believes that these three proprietary technologies position the Company to become a leader in the overall quantum dot industry, and a preferred supplier of high performance tetrapod quantum dots to an expanding range of applications.

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Fair value of financial instruments

The Company's financial instruments consist of cash and cash equivalents, prepaid expenses, accounts payable and debt. The carrying amount of these financial instruments approximates fair value due either to length of maturity or interest rates that approximate prevailing market rates unless otherwise disclosed in these consolidated financial statements.

 

Use of estimates

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


Long-lived assets

We review our long-lived assets, which include intangible assets subject to amortization, for recoverability whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of such long-lived asset or group of long-lived assets (collectively referred to as “the asset”) may not be recoverable.  Such circumstances include, but are not limited to:

 

·   a significant decrease in the market price of the asset;

·    a significant change in the extent or manner in which the asset is being used;

·    a significant change in the business climate that could affect the value of the asset;

·    a current period loss combined with projection of continuing loss associated with use of the asset; and

·    a current expectation that, more likely than not, the asset will be sold or otherwise disposed of before the end of its previously estimated useful life

 

Beneficial conversion

 

Debt instruments that contain a beneficial conversion feature are recorded as a deemed dividend to the holders of the convertible debt instruments. The deemed dividend associated with the beneficial conversion is calculated as the difference between the fair value of the underlying common stock less the proceeds that have been received for the debt instrument limited to the value received. The beneficial conversion amount is recorded as a deemed dividend or interest expense and an increase to additional paid-in-capital.  The beneficial conversion has been fully accreted to the face value of the original loan and interest expense has been recognized.

 

Plan of Operation

 

The Company has recently entered the commercialization stage of its business with the launch of the Wet Lab in July, 2013, its first permanent facility. The Wet Lab is located in San Marcos, Texas, approximately 30 miles south of Austin, Texas. This facility is part of the Star Park Technology Center, an extension of Texas State University, the fifth largest university in Texas and one of eight Texas Emerging Research Universities. This arrangement provides the Company with the opportunity to expand its operations within this 30 acre technology park. The Company has a year to year lease agreement and the option to add additional lab and office space on an as-needed basis. This location provides the Company with convenient access to an experienced faculty and specialized laboratory facilities that can support joint research and development efforts with Texas State University, and is in proximity to a number of leading companies in the life sciences, lighting, solar and electronics markets.

 

The Wet Lab will be the center of operations of the Company and will be used by the Company to produce small sample quantities of Nanomaterials as well as larger quantities of Nanomaterials via its patented process for supply to research facilities, customers and potential customers, and potential development joint ventures. The facility is used to support test production runs, to fine tune the characteristics of the materials for optimized performance in the customer's specific application, and for continued R&D activities. The Wet Lab was established through funds raised in a private placement of common shares of the Company completed in early June 2013.

Table of Contents


The Company has established its first continuous manufacturing process at the Wet Lab and can now produce kilogram volumes of Nanomaterials for supply to customers on a commercial scale. This first unit is being used to validate synthesis protocols for customized materials development to meet customer specification and is also being used to produce samples and is capable of fulfilling small to medium-size orders. The Company has also negotiated an agreement with the equipment provider for the delivery of a production scale equipment unit capable of producing up to 4000 kilograms per year. This unit is intended to be used to fulfill large commercial orders. Subject to the Company obtaining financing for this larger equipment acquisitions, the sample size and production size equipment units are expected to be delivered to the Wet Lab during the first calendar quarter of 2015. The second unit will be commissioned and tested upon delivery, with a view towards commencing initial production runs of materials within 30-60 days after installation. While the Company plans to work extensively with this provider of equipment units , the Company owns all rights to the designs and intellectual property resulting from the development project, and could contract with one or more other competent suppliers of equipment if that became necessary.

 

The Company is preparing to enter the next phase of its development – production and supply of commercial scale volumes of materials to potential customers and joint ventures in order to develop a platform of initial customers in various industries. In order to finance the development of its business, including the establishment of its continuous process manufacturing facility, purchase of the second equipment unit and the expansion of its marketing and sales capabilities. The Company expects to commence generating limited revenues from the production of materials at the Wet Lab before the end of fiscal year 2015. Such revenues are expected to be modest at first and will be dependent upon the Company generating purchase orders from potential customers currently under NDAs and evaluating the Company’s technology. As part of this strategy, the Company has engaged in discussions with numerous target customers and has signed a number of NDAs and Sample Agreements to increase the probability of receiving firm orders from one or more of these entities.

 

The Company’s ongoing research and development functions are considered key to maintaining and enhancing its competitive position in the growing nanomaterials and quantum dot market. Nanomaterials and Quantum dot technology continue to evolve, with new discoveries and refinements being made on an ongoing basis. The Company intends to be at the forefront of technological development, and will focus a significant part of its efforts on this, as it has done historically. Continuing R&D activities at the Wet Lab will be an important aspect of the Company’s strategy, as will the Company’s collaboration with Rice University, University of Arizona, Texas State University and the numerous research centers and departments with which the Company has relationships.

 

The key assets of the Company are its patents, high volume process equipment, licenses and other intellectual property rights, its knowhow and the expertise, capabilities and relationships brought to the Company by its management team. The Company will continue to develop its intellectual property portfolio and licensing rights. The Company is also working closely with numerous universities and public and private labs to develop and expand its intellectual property portfolio. As the business progresses, the Company will continually build out its portfolio of owned and licensed intellectual property, and take all appropriate steps to protect these rights.

 

The Licenses with Rice and University of Arizona include provisions for milestones and milestone payments. To date, these have been paid as agreed, waived and/or extended by both Rice and University of Arizona, respectively, illustrating the support each university has given to the Company as it has attempted to advance its business with measured resources. As the Company moves forward, it expects to be able to meet all payment and other obligations under the Licenses, and the Company’s funding strategy takes account of these requirements.

 

The business of the Company is subject to various types of government regulations, including restrictions on the chemical composition of nanomaterials used in life sciences and other sensitive applications, and regulation of hazardous materials used in or produced by the manufacture or use of quantum dots. Management believes that its patented technology, licensed patented chemistry and proprietary manufacturing process allow the Company to comply with current regulations by producing nanomaterials and by using environmentally friendly solvents, which are nevertheless contained and recycled in the production process. However, new regulations or requirements may develop that could adversely affect the Company or its products in the future.

 

Shipping Samples to Potential Clients

 

As a result of our automated production system, we have increased our rate of shipping samples to potential customers and we have delivered more than two dozen shipments. To our knowledge this represents the first shipments of automated production, not manual “batch” production. Our volume production process assures our clients that we can deliver high volumes of quantum dots for industrial use. Industries or uses intended include – displays, lighting, biotech, anti-counterfeiting, Sensors, Solar, Paint, and Coatings.

For the most part, our shipments of samples are to client’s specifications, and for others, these samples are preliminary shipments for evaluation for secondary purposes as we collaborate toward the development of their specific quantum dot enabled product.

 

Today we have a very active pipeline of potential clients that grows daily. These potential clients require a broad range of nanomaterials from relatively simple Red emitting quantum dots to both near and far Infrared emitting Quantum Dots, Thick-Shell Quantum Dots and/or Non-Heavy Metal Quantum Dots. Industries or uses intended include – Solid-State Lighting, Hydrogen Conversion, Displays, Solar, Automotive Glass and BIPV films, batteries, lasers, biotech and inks.

 

To maintain control of quantum dot production and quality, the Company’s preferred business relationship is a joint venture that evolves from a collaborative development effort where the parties agree to cooperate in the design and production of a range of new end products utilizing the Company’s Nanomaterials and/or screen printing processes, with the other party contributing industry expertise and substantial marketing, distribution and sales capabilities. In most cases, the Company envisions that the industry joint venture party would provide the financial resources to underwrite the project. In some cases, the joint venture may need to seek outside financing for the commercialization phase of the project. In either case, the Company would continue to control the production of the nanomaterials for incorporation into the end products.

 

Alternatively, the Company may choose to license a manufacturer of end products to incorporate the Company’s Nanomaterials into one or more specific products on an exclusive or non-exclusive basis. In some cases, it may be appropriate to dedicate an equipment unit to a single product line (for example, silicon nanocrystals for energy storage) for a single licensee, whether sited at the Company’s facilities or at the facilities of the licensee. In all cases, the license would contain provisions restricting the use of the Company’s technology and protecting its intellectual property.

 

In advancing these development activities, the Company follows a disciplined process to protect its intellectual property and foster collaborative arrangements. First, NDAs are entered into, followed by sample agreements. The Company then formulates, manufactures and supplies product samples to the counterparty’s specifications for evaluation and testing. If successful, this then leads to discussions on the form of a possible commercial relationship. Each step takes time, and the Company is increasing its sample production capacity to satisfy the backlog of requests for its materials of different compositions. Sample production is currently accommodated through use of the lab facilities at the Company’s Wet Lab described below.

 

In seeking to expand its customer base, the Company’s marketing strategy will be to engage in joint ventures or other strategic arrangements with manufacturers and others to jointly develop applications using its patented continuous production process and licensed screen printing technology to maximum effect. Such joint collaborations will involve the Company working closely with the industry counterpart to optimize the performance of the Company’s materials in each application or device, and to use the results from product development and testing to further enhance product specifications to meet the requirements of the market. These collaborations will support the Company’s internal research and development activities, which will continue to be a primary part of the Company’s business. The principal revenue streams for the Company are expected to be from (i) sales of Nanomaterials, (ii) royalties from sales of products and components by third parties incorporating the Company’s Nanomaterials, (iii) milestone payments under joint development arrangements with product developers and manufacturers, and (iv) sub-licensing fees where the Company engages in sub-licensing arrangements for its technology.

As of December 31, 2014, the Company has not entered into any formal commercial joint ventures or licensing agreements, but has executed the following array of agreements and taken the following steps toward commercialization of its Nanomaterials in various market sectors:

  

              Universities,  
      Product       Researchers,  
      Manufacturers       Other  
NDAs     31       13  
Sample Agreements     12       3  
Initial Samples Delivered     8       2  
Commercial Discussions Underway     23       5  

 

However, there can be no assurance that the above activities will result in sales of the Company’s products or that such sales will result in profits to the Company.

 

The Company’s existing business development team is led by its director of marketing, who handles the North American, U.K. and European Union markets, supported by two staff employees responsible for Asia and the Middle East, respectively. The Company’s marketing and sales capabilities, considered to be critical to the success of the business, will also be expanded with the recruitment of one additional full time person during the next twelve months.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At December 31, 2014 the Company had a working capital deficit of approximately $493,500 with total current liabilities of approximately $592,000. Approximately $456,300 of these liabilities is owed to our officers, directors and employees for services rendered and accrued through December 31, 2014.   As a result, the Company has relied on financing through the issuance of common stock and a convertible debenture as well as advances from a director, shareholder and employees’ wages being partially or fully accrued but not paid.

 

As of December 31, 2014, the Company lacks cash or cash equivalent assets and continues to incur losses in its operations.  Over the past five years, the Company relied on sales of its Common Stock to support its operations and on various universities performing work and providing U.S. licensing rights under business agreements in which the Company has at times been in arrears in payments as well as employees and consultants agreeing to defer payment of wages and fees owed to them and/or converting such wages and fees into the securities of the Company.   Currently, the Company is seeking additional financing in excess of $3,000,000; however, no definitive agreements for additional financing have been received and the Company cannot provide any assurance that additional funding will be available to finance our operations on terms acceptable to us, if at all, in order to support our plan of operations.  If we are unable to achieve the financing necessary to continue our plan of operations, then our stockholders may lose their entire investment in the Company.  See "Notes to Financial Statements."

 

Cash was used in operating activities of $1,091,059 for the six months ending December 31, 2014. This is a result of a net loss of $1,275,278, off-set by non-cash items: stock issued for services ($887,283); debenture interest paid with stock ($21,806); beneficial conversion charge related to convertible notes ($171,976); depreciation and amortization ($30,377) and recognized benefit from reduction in derivative liability ($579,670), further off-set by changes in working capital components, as in accounts payable of $46,978 and changes in accrued liabilities for related parties of $36,271. Cash flows used in investing activities in the six months ended December 31, 2014 were $190,285 which consisted of purchase of licenses of $137,743 and purchases of equipment of $52,542. Cash received from financing activities during the six months ended December 31, 2014 were $1,193,990 which consisted of proceeds of the sale of common stock of $567,470, cash received from the exercise of options and warrants of $101,000 and proceeds from convertible loans of $525,520.

These consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles applicable to a going concern, which assumes that the Company will be able to meet its obligations and continue its operations for its next fiscal year.  Realization values may be substantially different from carrying values as shown and these financial statements do not give effect to adjustments that would be necessary to the carrying value and classification of assets and liabilities should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.  At December 31, 2014, the Company had not yet achieved profitable operations, has a working capital deficit of $493,548 and expects to incur further losses in the development of its business, all of which casts substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate future profitable operations and/or to obtain the necessary financing to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. The Company requires immediate and substantial additional financing (estimated at $3,000,000) during fiscal 2015 to maintain and expand its operations. The Company is exploring all reasonable available financing at this time, including, without limitation, the sale of equity, debt borrowing and/or the receipt of product licensing fees and royalties. We can provide no assurances that such financing will be obtained on terms satisfactory to the Company, if at all. Further, we can provide no assurances that one or more mutually acceptable licensing agreement(s) will be entered into on terms satisfactory to us, if at all. In this respect, see “Note 2” in our notes to the consolidated financial statements for additional information as to the possibility that we may not be able to continue as a “going concern.”

 

Off-balance sheet arrangements

 

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements including arrangements that would affect our liquidity, capital resources, market risk support and credit risk support or other benefits.

Item 3.  Quantitative And Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

 

Market risk is the risk of loss arising from adverse changes in market rates and prices, such as interest rates, foreign currency exchange rates and commodity prices. Our primary exposure to market risk is interest rate risk associated with our short term money market investments. The Company does not have any financial instruments held for trading or other speculative purposes and does not invest in derivative financial instruments, interest rate swaps or other investments that alter interest rate exposure. The Company does not have any credit facilities with variable interest rates.

 

Item 4.  Controls and Procedures

 

The Company maintains disclosure controls and procedures designed to provide reasonable assurance that material information required to be disclosed by us in the reports we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that the information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. We performed an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on their evaluation, our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are not effective at December 31, 2014. 

 

We do not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures will prevent all errors and all instances of fraud. Disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the disclosure controls and procedures are met. Further, the design of disclosure controls and procedures must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all disclosure controls and procedures, no evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures can provide absolute assurance that we have detected all our control deficiencies and instances of fraud, if any. The design of disclosure controls and procedures also is based partly on 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.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

In our Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting included in the Company’s Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2014, management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of June 30, 2014.

 

Management did identify a significant deficiency; a significant deficiency is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, that is less severe than a material weakness, yet important enough to merit attention by those responsible for oversight of the registrant’s financial reporting.  Currently we do not have sufficient in-house expertise in US GAAP reporting.  Instead, we rely very much on the expertise and knowledge of external financial advisors in US GAAP conversion.  External financial advisors have helped prepare and review the consolidated financial statements.  This deficiency of not having sufficient qualified staff has resulted in the Company being unable to file our 10-K for the years ending June 30, 2013, June 30, 2011 and 2010 and our Form 10-Q for the periods ended September 30, 2010, December 31, 2010, March 31, 2011, September 30, 2011 and December 31, 2011 in a timely manner.  Although we have not identified any material errors with our financial reporting or any material weaknesses with our internal controls, no assurances can be given that there are no such material errors or weaknesses existing.  To remediate this situation, we are seeking to recruit experienced professionals to augment and upgrade our financial staff to address issues of timeliness and completeness in US GAAP financial reporting.  In addition, we do not believe we have sufficient documentation with our existing financial processes, risk assessment and internal controls.  We plan to work closely with external financial advisors to document the existing financial processes, risk assessment and internal controls systematically.

 

We believe that the remediation measures we are taking, if effectively implemented and maintained, will remediate the significant deficiency discussed above.

 

Except as described above, there have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during our last fiscal quarter to which this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q relates that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal controls over financial reporting.

PART II – OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1.  Legal Proceedings.

 

In Q4 of FY 2014, the Company commenced an action against Robert Allan Glass in Federal Court in Austin, Texas regarding the termination of his employment agreement. The Company seeks to recover all common stock and cancel all options issued to Mr. Glass as part of his employment agreement. Mr. Glass has filed a counterclaim against the Company alleging breach of contract of the employment agreement seeking allegedly unpaid compensation.

 

On December 22, 2014, the parties came to a non-appealable judgment agreement. Pursuant to this agreement, Robert Allan Glass and the Company agreed that he may retain 2.4 million shares that were issued to him as part of his prior employment agreement. As part of the agreement, Mr. Glass agreed to forego all accrued and unpaid wages and to terminate all outstanding options or warrants held in his name and to return 2.6 million shares of Common Stock to the Company for cancellation, which shares were part of his signing bonus.
