PART I


ITEM 1.   

BUSINESS


Corporate History


Deal a Day Group Corp. (“DEEL” or “the Company”) was incorporated in the state of Nevada on April 27, 2005 under the name Puppy Zone Enterprises, Inc.  On December 20, 2007, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Actiga Corporation whereby Puppy Zone Enterprises, Inc. merged into Actiga Corporation, and we filed Articles of Merger to effectuate the merger and name change.  On January 14, 2008, we effectuated the merger (the “Merger”) of our subsidiary with and into QMotions, Inc., (“QMotions”) with QMotions becoming the surviving wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.  


 Until October 23, 2008, we, through two of our then wholly-owned subsidiaries, QMotions and Aptus Games Inc., (“Aptus”) operated our business as a developer, manufacturer and distributor, marketer and seller of motion-based controllers for on-line video games and developer of three-dimensional gaming software.  On August 20, 2009, we changed our name to Avisio, Inc., to reflect the new business model of the Company, which was to acquire and commercialize underutilized but potentially high value assets into profitable companies.


Thereafter and due to the growth and evolution of the daily deal industry, we decided to change our business model. On September 1, 2011 we changed our name to Deal a Day Group Corp. to reflect our new business direction in the internet sales and marketing industry.  Accordingly, on November 4, 2011, we entered into an Asset Acquisition Agreement (the “Asset Acquisition Agreement”) with Rich Media Corp. (“RMC”) whereby the Company acquired certain assets directly related to various online marketing and media websites, and social media accounts operating in the internet sales and marketing industries (collectively “the Acquired Assets”).  In exchange for the Acquired Assets, RMC received an aggregate payment of two hundred fifty thousand US dollars ($250,000) and one million five hundred thousand (1,500,000) restricted shares of the Company’s common stock.  


 From our headquarters in Long Beach, California, we plan to become an internet-based social media company focused on marketing coupons to local merchants.  The Company’s goal is to set itself apart from the larger competitors by developing long term relationships with its merchants.  We will offer value-added products, services and support to help retain the customers brought in by the deals we will offer, with a constant focus on offering such deals to a local consumer base.  We have found that these are the most sought after criteria to attracting merchant participation.


Since the adoption of our new business venture as the central focus of the Company, we have concentrated our efforts on building a core operations team and requisite software platforms.  As part of these efforts, we secured the domain name, www.ridethedeal.com, and we have been developing our website. The majority of our time since the fourth quarter of 2012 has been spent on capital fund raising efforts, market research and analysis, continuing software development, and direct contact and feedback with local merchants and people within the target community. We believe our success will come from the strategic marketing of our product and service offerings and the development of strong relationships with our merchants for continuous repeat-business.  We intend to launch in other communities in the United States with the eventual goal of expanding internationally.


Business Model


The initial component of our revenue model is the sale of merchants’ daily deal offerings. We have developed the website and supporting backend software enabling an efficient and streamlined process for: (i) posting a daily deal; (ii) monitoring, tracking, and statistical record keeping of the deal coupon purchase; and, (iii) detailed transactional accounting among the consumer, the merchant and the Company.


Additionally, we intend to offer merchant advertising whereby merchants will be offered participation in our purchased advertising, email, and social media campaigns, banner advertising on our website, and special events.  We believe this low-cost but high-margin model has the potential to gain momentum if we are able to generate greater name recognition and as our user and follower base grows.


Affiliate Marketing will also be an added revenue stream providing high margins and minimal costs to the Company.  Affiliate programs are offered by companies or individuals that want to market a product or service but do not necessarily want to incur additional advertising expenditures.  Banner advertising will be displayed on the Company’s website driving merchant traffic to the affiliate business website.  The entity or individual would pay the Company commissions on transactions facilitated between customers and affiliate suppliers.  There are no overhead costs to the Company and our in-house personnel can manage the entire process of the Affiliate Marketing procedures for the website.

Products and Services


Our website will be the basis of our first venture into the social media/online coupons industry. This site will feature a daily “Deal of the Day” and it will be the center point for future Merchant Advertising and Affiliate Marketing.  Our website will only be a portal for coupons, and we will not be involved in any direct sales of products or services through our website.  Our initial revenue stream will come from selling coupons for the daily deals.  Each sale will be split between the Company and the merchant offering the deal.


Through our “Ride The Deal” brand, the Company will develop its business model and offer its deals in tier 2 markets, which consist of the communities outside of the major metropolitan areas with populations of less than 500,000.  We believe that these areas may tend to have a much stronger sense of community since supporting the local community is an important factor in both consumers’ choices as well as the desire for merchants to participate in these promotions.  Thus our brand statement: “Shop Local. Save Local. Support Local.” will be a theme throughout our Company.


Our sales team will work with each merchant to create customized deals for each individual merchant.  We have also created standardized deal templates for the main categories of merchants such as restaurants, bars, and spas for quick demonstrations, sales and postings for potential merchant clients. We are continuing to develop templates for different categories of deals, and we are working on providing a greater selection of options for the sales team to offer merchants.  These standardized templates are efficient for the merchants and they also reduce the time and costs for the Company.


Plan of Operations


Phase 1 – Company Structure, Software and Technology


The “Ride the Deal” assets were acquired shortly thereafter as part of the Asset Acquisition Agreement and we began implementing our new business plan in November 2011. Since then, we have established a central headquarters in Long Beach, California as the basis of our initial operations, and as our operations will be mostly virtual, new satellite cities can be operated and managed remotely once we expand our operations into other cities.  With the exception of local sales and writing staff, we anticipate incurring minimal infrastructure costs as part of expanding our deal offerings to additional cities.  


We believe a stable and feature-rich software platform is the foundation on which the electronic coupon industry is based.  Accordingly, and after careful consideration and analysis, we determined that the creation and development of our own proprietary software platform would ultimately provide the greatest value to the Company and to our potential and existing clients. Our sales cycle relies will rely almost exclusively on this platform; therefore, we focused our initial research on various third-party offerings for such software platform. The proprietary software platform required a larger initial investment of time and resources, but we believe the numerous benefits it offers far outweigh its costs.  Additionally, ownership and control of our own software platform has created an asset which can be monetized via several channels:


1.

Scalability built into the design means expanding to additional cities does not require further investment or licensing fees paid to third parties;

2.

We can adapt readily to technology requirements as the electronic coupon industry continues to evolve;

3.

Our products and services are highly customizable; therefore, changes can be implemented immediately using our in house technical experts;

4.

Alternative revenue sources can be established by offering a customized suite of software packages to other, non-competitive operations; and,

5.

Further revenue sources can be exploited as proprietary applications and features are developed, utilized and tested within our own operations.  Those that have high monetizable value can be re-packaged and offered to third parties


Version 1.0 of our software platform and website underwent beta testing in December 2011.  Other milestones we completed during the 4th quarter of 2012 include the hiring of a sales team, development of the Company’s marketing plan, and the onset of an email database development.  Version 2.0 of our software was completed in the 4th quarter of 2012.




5




Phase 2 – Operations, Marketing & Sales


Phase 2 of our business plan began at the start of 2012 with the completion of the Company’s website.  Our website, www.ridethedeal.com has not gone live as the Company has processed certain test transactions to date to ensure the website’s viability.  Marketing is a two-fold aspect of our business since we will market our services to both merchants and subscribers.  Although the primary goal of our marketing activities will be to create a local subscriber base through the procurement of emails, there are positive spill-over effects that aid in procuring participating merchants and ultimately creating more daily deals.  We believe that the simple and most important analysis is that higher number of emails equals higher revenues.  A large subscriber base also attracts merchants to participate as the daily deals will be viewed by a large number of individuals.  Therefore, even if the daily deal is not purchased, the simple act of viewing the daily deal provides exposure and advertising.  These effects allow us to devote most of our marketing budget and resources to the task of collecting opt-in emails.


The Company will utilize local outside sales staff that prospect for and engage with local merchants.  Our research has shown that merchant participation and closing rates with face to face presentations are far higher than solicitations via telephone, email and other forms of communication.  A sales associate will be given an Apple iPad which is pre-loaded with the Company’s own proprietary software tools and applications, including:

 

·

Ride The Deal presentation;

·

Various deal templates;

·

Deal and revenue calculator;

·

Post-deal promotions and marketing tools; and,

·

Electronic contracts (with signing function)


Sales associates will be able to create, submit and close a deal immediately upon the approval of the participating merchant with the specific conditions of a sale to require final approval from Company management.  The iPad applications allow for a paperless contract with a signing function; however a printed copy of the deal will be provided for merchant records.  New deals will be submitted to the deal queue within the Company’s software platform and uploaded according to a schedule, which is designed to offer a strategic mix of daily/featured deals along with continuing deals which will be presented in the side bar of the “deals page” until the offering of that specific deal has expired.  Daily deals will be offered through our website and sent via email blast to our subscriber base and social media channels.  Revenues are generated from the purchasing of the deals and reconciled daily through our transaction engine which is integrated with our accounting systems.


Revenues from sales of the daily deals will be divided between the merchant and our Company.  This model was first introduced by Groupon, Inc. where the merchant and the daily deal operator would split the proceeds from the deal 50/50.


For example:


1.

A deal would be offered at $20 (retail price to consumer)

2.

The $20 is paid immediately to the daily deal site through the transaction engine

3.

$10 would be retained and $10 would be paid out to the participating merchant over a 2-3 month period


The Company’s policy is to offer a 55% payout, slightly higher than the industry norm of 50%, to the merchant with payments made to the merchant in two tranches.  The first payment will be advanced within 7 days of the receipt of the proceeds of the deal transaction, and the second 15 days thereafter. The response to this policy has been positive as we have also developed programs to retain customers after the deal has been run.  Additionally, we plan to pay the merchants at a much quicker rate, with the payout happening generally within 2 weeks to a month, versus the original 2-3 month period.


The Company will also work with merchants to create special offers and deeply discounted products and services in the form of stored value vouchers or coupons that can be redeemed at the purchaser’s leisure.  The Company’s sales plan will involve offering new “deals” on a daily basis on our website and disseminating such deals to a subscriber base via email blasts and social networking channels.  If the subscriber likes the deal, he or she can purchase it immediately through our payment gateway.  We have chosen Authorize.net as our payment processor which ties in seamlessly with our transaction engine and software platform.  Since Authorize.net accepts all major credit cards and other forms of electronic payment, including Pay Pal.  We plan to eventually rotate deals daily with the featured deal being presented as the deal of the day with past deals being offered until the offering or buy period has expired.



6




Deals generally fall into one of several main themes and categories, the determining factors of which are typical for each type of business category.  We have developed standardized templates for the main categories of merchants such as restaurants, bars, and spas for quick demonstrations, sales, and postings for the potential merchant clients.  Customized deals can also be made according to the goals and needs of the specific merchant.


We anticipate that a typical deal will offer 50% or greater savings to the purchaser.  For example, a restaurant may offer a dining certificate which carries a value of $40 dollars to be spent at the restaurant at a price of $20 (i.e. the customer pays $20 and is given a voucher with $40 value).  All deals will have an expiration time and date for the purchase of the deal in order to help create a sense of urgency.


Deals will have a minimum and maximum number of units available depending upon the merchants’ ability and desire to deliver/provide such deals.  Some deals will depend upon a “threshold limit” for the deal to be viable for the merchant.  For example, in order to create a viable deal, a total of 15 purchases must be made before the deal is active.  Once this threshold is met, the deal becomes active and all deals previously purchased or purchased before the expiration time become valid.  If this threshold is not met within a given time limit, the deal never becomes active and any customers who purchased the deal will be refunded their purchase price.


All coupons and vouchers will have unique number code identifiers in order to deter copying or counterfeiting and for accounting and reconciliation purposes. We are working on a mobile application to enable downloading and storing the deal voucher onto smartphones.  Consumers will eventually have the choice to either print a hard copy of the voucher for presentation, or simply present their smartphone with the electronic voucher to the merchant.  Our software platform has been designed to provide easy redemption for both the merchant and the consumer.  The back end of the software platform also allows for simple and automated reconciliation between the Company and the merchant so that the appropriate commissions and division of revenues are calculated and paid.


Phase 3 – Expansion Plans


We believe that California is the best area strategically to launch our services.  The state includes an abundant list of cities near major metropolitan areas that meet our criteria of populations under 500,000.  Where some of our larger competitors may offer nation-wide exposure, we offer exposure to local consumers who we believe have a much higher propensity to purchase the deal and also to be returning customers to their local merchants.  We plan to expand into markets within geographical proximity to existing markets, while maximizing the efficiency of the ways in which we obtain subscribers, both virtual (Search Engine Optimization, Social Media, etc.) and physical (involvement and presence in the community through relationships with charities, chambers of commerce and involvement in community events).


Our business model is such that capital costs are relatively low compared to the ability to create revenue immediately.  We estimate each expansion location will cost between $25,000 to $50,000 depending on the actual distance from our headquarters in Long Beach.  We will seek further debt funding and or equity financing to meet our operations commitments and expansion plans.


The following cities have been targeted for possible future locations:


·

Temecula

·

Murrieta

·

Victorville

·

Fresno

·

San Luis Obispo County

·

Danville

·

La Quinta

·

Palm Springs

·

North County San Diego

·

Lincoln


Marketing Strategy


The Company’s Marketing Strategy is focused on expending resources on optimal opportunities in order to generate revenues, maximize exposure, and develop a loyalty amongst both subscribers and merchant clientele.  Our strategies also anticipate changes in consumer buying habits and market conditions, allowing us flexibility to quickly and efficiently make changes to our online presence, marketing efforts, and communications with all parties.



7




We will continue to develop our flagship location in the Long Beach, California, area, and will fine tune our website by using the feedback of our future merchants and subscribers to assist us in growing our brand name awareness.  Approximately 50% of our operational budget will be allocated to marketing efforts moving forward.


Search Engine Optimization and Web-Based Marketing.  Search and social media have proven to be key drivers that determine the sites that consumers visit.  We believe that effective web-based marketing and strong Search Engine Optimization (“SEO”) strategies have become critical to any company’s ongoing internet success.  Therefore, the Company has developed an in-house SEO and Web-Based marketing team that is leveraging its experience and developing specialized tools to maximize the effectiveness in these areas:


·

On the front-end, the SEO and web-based marketing efforts will drive traffic to our site, provide information to users and help to procure a larger subscriber base

·

On the back-end, we have implemented analytical tools, which further help to assess online-behavior and the effectiveness of our campaigns and the message we are providing to users.


The Company is utilizing the marketing tools offered by social media sites such as Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter and creating city-specific blogs using local writers to create awareness in the social media arena.  These tools have proven highly effective in extending reach and exposure in both the virtual and real-world communities, thereby ultimately increasing our subscriber base.


Community Involvement.  The Company has engaged with and is developing working agreements with local and national charities with a local presence.  We believe that by working closely with the charities we will be able to develop solutions where both consumers and merchants can choose to help give back to the community and support local charities.  We believe that engaging with and working with local charities will help validate our Company and our brand in the community.  Offering partial proceeds to charity has made our offerings more attractive to our subscriber base and provided an avenue for participating merchants to give back to the community.


Street Teams and Brand Ambassadors. The Company has created street teams consisting of “Brand Ambassadors” who will offer customized “Ride The Deal” promotional items and provide information to the local community on a one-on-one basis.  These teams will be deployed in various events such as Farmers’ Markets, Local Business/Community Gatherings and Special Events to offer our brand presence at the local level.  We believe this will be a source for a cost-effective, grassroots campaign for collecting subscribers who wish to opt-in to our email blasts.  We intend to use these street teams in each new city where “Ride The Deal” will have a presence.


Chambers of Commerce.  We intend to become a member and attend and/or sponsor various events of the local Chambers of Commerce in every community that we launch.


Print Media.  Although newspaper ads in the larger local and community publications have proven to be effective compliments to our advertising and marketing efforts, traditional forms of advertising and marketing such as radio, print media and billboards will be kept to a minimum in order to control costs and maximize the efficiency of our marketing budget.


Competition


We consider our two biggest competitors to be Groupon and Living Social.  We feel that it would be difficult for our Company to compete with them on the same level due to their international name recognition and available financial resources.  Therefore, we have differentiated ourselves enough so that they are not a threat to our target audience and markets.  In addition to these competitors, we expect to compete against large Internet and technology-based businesses, such as Facebook®, Google® and Microsoft®, each of which has launched initiatives which are directly competitive to our business. We also expect to compete against other Internet websites that are focused on specific communities or interests and offer coupons or discount arrangements related to such communities or interests. We will also compete with traditional offline coupon and discount services, as well as newspapers, magazines and other traditional media companies who provide coupons and discounts on products and services.


When attracting potential merchants, we target the smaller markets, as opposed to the large metropolitan markets our competitor’s target and we communicate and transact with the merchants in person.  We also offer flexible deal structures that allow us to cater to individual merchants when required.  Our research has shown that the bigger companies’ inflexibility has caused merchants to push back.  We focus on client retention, with the belief that the best and easiest client is a repeat client.


With subscribers, we will highlight the authentically local and boutique-oriented approach.  We will build community awareness through organic marketing measures.  The deployment of our street teams as brand ambassadors and their attendance at community events will create awareness and help educate both consumers and merchants on the format of daily deals.



8




Although we are aware that there are also constantly new smaller companies entering into the marketplace, we believe that attrition rates are extremely high primarily because as the barriers to entry into this industry are deceptive and much more complex than simply a software package and email list.


We believe overcoming these competitors can be accomplished with our plan of creating true brand awareness and carving our own unique niche.  We own our own software platform and have an in-house tech team that can adapt quickly and efficiently to our technology needs.  We are authentically local and involved in the community through charities, chambers of commerce special events, and even our outside sales people are local hires.


Patents, Trademarks, and Licenses


The Company has not applied for any patents or trademarks and does not intend to do so in the foreseeable future.


Government Regulation


Our website and other online content will be subject to government regulation of the Internet in many areas, including user privacy, telecommunications, libel, data protection, consumer protection, intellectual property, advertising, taxation, and e-commerce. The application of these laws and regulations to our business is often unclear and sometimes may conflict. It may take years to determine whether and how existing laws governing those areas apply to the Internet and to our Company, as the vast majority of these laws were adopted prior to the advent of the Internet and do not contemplate or address the unique issues raised by the Internet or e-commerce.  Nonetheless, laws and regulations directly applicable to Internet communications, e-commerce and advertising are becoming more prevalent and due to the increasing popularity and use of the Internet, it is likely that additional laws and regulations will be adopted.  Further, the growth and development of the market for e-commerce may prompt calls for more stringent consumer protection laws, both in the United States and abroad, which may impose additional burdens on companies conducting business online.  Compliance with these laws and regulations may involve significant costs or require changes in business practices that result in reduced revenue. Noncompliance could result in penalties being imposed on us or orders that we stop the alleged noncompliant activity, either of which would substantially harm our business.


Further, there are a number of legislative proposals pending before the U.S. Congress, various state legislative bodies and foreign governments concerning data protection and many states have passed laws that require notifications to be sent to subscribers when there is a security breach of personal data. The interpretation and application of current laws regarding data protection are still uncertain and in flux. It is possible that these laws may be interpreted and applied in a manner that is inconsistent with our data practices. If so, in addition to the possibility of fines, this could result in an order requiring that we change our data and disclosure practices, which could have an adverse effect on our business. Complying with these various laws could cause us to incur substantial costs or require us to change our business practices in a manner adverse to our business.


Further, the federal Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility and Disclosure Act of 2009 (“CARD Act”), as well as the laws of most states, contain provisions governing product terms and conditions of gift cards, gift certificates, stored value or pre-paid cards or coupons ("gift cards"), such as provisions prohibiting or limiting the use of expiration dates on gift cards or the amount of fees charged in connection with gift cards, or requiring specific disclosures on or in connection with gift cards. Our proposed products will generally fall into the category of "gift cards" in many of these laws. However, the CARD Act and a number of states provide exemptions or modifications from these provisions for gift cards that are issued as part of a promotion or promotional program. If our proposed products are subject to the CARD Act, and are not included in the exemptions or modifications for promotional programs, it is possible that the purchase value, which is the amount equal to the price paid for the deal, or the promotional value, which is the add-on value of the deal in excess of the price paid, or both, may not expire before the later of (i) five years after the date on which the deal was issued; (ii) the deal’s stated expiration date (if any); or (iii) a later date provided by applicable state law. In addition, regardless of whether an exemption or modification for our proposed products applies under the CARD Act, in those states that prohibit or otherwise restrict expiration dates on gift cards and that do not have exemptions that apply to the purchase value or the promotional value, or both, the Company may be required to honor the full offer value (the total of purchase value and promotional value) until redeemed. Our terms of use and agreements with our merchants will require merchants to continue to honor unredeemed deals that are past the stated expiration date of the promotional value of the deal to the extent required under the applicable law.

        

In addition, some states also include gift cards under their unclaimed and abandoned property laws which require companies to remit to the government the value of the unredeemed balance on the gift cards after a specified period of time (generally between one and five years) and impose certain reporting and recordkeeping obligations. We may have to remit funds to the government relating to unredeemed deals under these laws. The analysis of the potential application of the unclaimed and abandoned property laws to our proposed products is be complex, involving an analysis of constitutional and statutory provisions and factual issues, including our relationship with subscribers and merchants and our future role as it relates to the issuance and delivery of our products.



9




Furthermore, our Company must also make sure that we maintain full transparency with respect to our donation model. Commercial Co-Venturer Laws (“CCV”) laws generally protect consumers and charities against fraudulent or misleading advertising and help to assure that promised donations get delivered to the proper place.

Operating revenues for the period ended December 31, 2011 was $nil.


Operating Expenses and Net Loss


Operating expenses for the period ended December 31, 2012 was $526,104 and is comprised mostly of stock based compensation, consulting fees, professional fees and general and administrative expenses.


Operating expenses for the period ended December 31, 2011 was $496,136 and is comprised mostly of stock based compensation, consulting fees, professional fees and general and administrative expenses.

Net loss for the period ended December 31, 2011 was $670,002 and is comprised of operating expenses and interest expenses.


Liquidity and Capital Resources


As at December 31, 2012, the Company’s total asset balance was $3,795 compared to $22,494 as at December 31, 2011.  The decrease in total assets is attributed mainly to a decrease in cash resulting from the Companies inability to raise sufficient debt or equity financing to cover expenses.



12




As at December 31, 2012, the Company had total liabilities of $1,994,584 compared with total liabilities of $1,606,096 as at December 31, 2011.  The increase in total liabilities was attributed to primarily to an increase of interest payable and additional debt taken by the Company.  


As at December 31, 2012, the Company had a working capital deficit of $1,990,789 compared with a working capital deficit of $1,583,602 as at December 31, 2011.  The change in working capital deficit was a result of the Company undertaking additional debt in the current year.


Cashflow from Operating Activities


During the period ended December 31, 2012, the Company used $344,779 of cash for operating activities compared to the use of $227,894 of cash for operating activities during the period ended December 31, 2011.  The change in net cash used in operating activities is attributed to an increase in losses when adjusted for stock based compensation.


Going Concern

 

In their report on our financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2012, our independent registered public accounting firm included an explanatory paragraph expressing substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our financial statements contain additional note disclosures describing the circumstances that lead to this disclosure.


There is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern, as the continuation of our business is dependent upon our obtaining further long-term financing, successful and sufficient market acceptance of our products and ultimately achieving a profitable level of operations.  We have historically incurred losses, and through December 31, 2012 have incurred losses of $9,232,399 from our inception.


There are no assurances that we will be able to either (1) achieve a level of revenues adequate to generate sufficient cash flow from operations; or (2) obtain additional financing through either private placement, public offerings and/or bank financing necessary to support our working capital requirements. To the extent that funds generated from operations and any private placements, public offerings and/or bank financing are insufficient, we will have to raise additional working capital. No assurance can be given that additional financing will be available, or if available, will be on terms acceptable to us. If adequate working capital is not available we may not increase our operations.


Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements


We have no significant 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 stockholders.


Future Financings

 

We will continue to rely on equity sales of our common shares in order to continue to fund our business operations.  Issuances of additional shares will result in dilution to existing stockholders.  There is no assurance that we will achieve any additional sales of the equity securities or arrange for debt or other financing to fund planned acquisitions and exploration activities.


Critical Accounting Policies


Our financial statements and accompanying notes have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles applied on a consistent basis.  The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods.

 

We regularly evaluate the accounting policies and estimates that we use to prepare our financial statements.  A complete summary of these policies is included in the notes to our financial statements.  In general, management's estimates are based on historical experience, on information from third party professionals, and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the facts and circumstances.  Actual results could differ from those estimates made by management.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM


To the Board of Directors

Deal a Day Group Corp.

Long Beach, CA


We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Deal a Day Group Corp. as of December 31, 2012 and 2011, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ deficit, and cash flows for the years then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.


We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States).  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement.  The Company has determined that it is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting.  Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.  Accordingly, we express no such opinion.  An audit includes examining on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements.  An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation.  We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.


In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Deal a Day Group Corp. as of December 31, 2012 and 2011 and the results of its operations and cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.


The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that Deal a Day Group Corp. will continue as a going concern.  As discussed in Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company has incurred losses from operations and has a substantial working capital deficiency.  These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.  Management’s plans with regard to these matters are described in Note 2. The accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

ORGANIZATION AND PRINCIPAL ACTIVITIES


Deal a Day Group Corp. (“DADG” or “the Company”) is a corporation organized under the laws of the State of Nevada.  


DADG changed its business direction in the wake of the massive growth and evolution of the multi-billion dollar daily deal market space.  We have redirected our company with the vision of creating balance between merchants and their customers and to create platforms that will help merchants grow their businesses through cost effective promotional resources. Our business units will focus on the Daily Deals/Group buying arena, print media, and software and applications development.


On November 3, 2011, the Company completed a 1-for-2 reverse stock split.  As of December 31, 2012, 49,218,805 shares of common stock are outstanding.


2.

SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES


Accounting Principles

The consolidated balance sheets and related consolidated statements of operations and cash flows contained in this report include the accounts of the Company and its subsidiaries. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. In the opinion of management, all entries necessary for a fair presentation of such consolidated financial statements have been included. These entries consisted only of normal recurring items.


The consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”).  The preparation of financial statements in conformity with United States generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the 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 may differ from those estimates.


Discontinued operations


The Company’s former operations were discontinued in 2008 and were accounted for as discontinued operations.  On October 21, 2011, the discontinued operations of QMotions, Inc. and Aptus Games Inc. were sold in a share purchase agreement to an individual.  The Company retains ownership of the discontinued subsidiary Diagnostic Nano Applications Corp.


Cash and cash equivalents


Cash and cash equivalents consist primarily of cash on deposit.


Revenue recognition


The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with the provision of the Securities and Exchange Commission Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) No. 104 (ASC 605-10) which establishes guidance in applying generally accepted accounting principles to revenue recognition in financial statements. Four basic criteria must be met before we recognize revenue: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred or services rendered; (3) the price to the buyer is fixed and determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured.


Research and development


All costs of research and development activities are expensed as incurred.  

 

Income taxes


The Company records deferred tax assets and liabilities based on the net tax effects of tax credits, operating loss carryforwards and temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes. The Company assesses the likelihood that its deferred tax assets will be recovered from future taxable income and the Company establishes a valuation allowance to reduce deferred tax assets to an amount which it believes to be more likely than not realizable. The valuation allowance is based on the Company`s estimates of taxable income by jurisdiction in which it operates and the period over which its deferred tax assets will be recoverable.

December 31, 2012


SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)


Going concern


The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the company will continue to operate as a going concern.  Through December 31, 2012, the Company has not generated significant operating or net profits.  As of December 31, 2012, the accumulated deficit is $9,232,399 and the working capital deficiency is $1,990,789.  


Property, plant and equipment


Property, plant and equipment are stated at original cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization.


Depreciation is provided to write off the cost of property, plant and equipment using the straight-line method at rates based on their estimated useful lives from the date on which they become fully operational and after taking into account their estimated residual values.

 

Accounting for the impairment of long-lived assets


The long-lived assets held and used by the Company are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of assets may not be recoverable. It is reasonably possible that these assets could become impaired as a result of technology or other industry changes. Determination of recoverability of assets to be held and used is by comparing the carrying amount of an asset to future net undiscounted cash flows to be generated by the assets. If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell.


Operating leases


Leases where substantially all the rewards and risks of ownership of assets remain with the leasing company are accounted for as operating leases.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments


The Company’s financial instruments consist of prepaids and other assets, accounts payable, accrued interest, and notes payable. The carrying amounts 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 financial statements.


Related parties


Parties are considered to be related if one party has the ability, directly or indirectly, to control the other party or exercise significant influence over the other party in making financial and operating decisions. Parties are also considered to be related if they are subject to common control or common significant influence.


Basic and Diluted Net Loss per Share


Basic net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss applicable to common shareholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per common share is determined using the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period, adjusted for the dilutive effect of common stock equivalents, consisting of shares that might be issued upon exercise of common stock options. In periods where losses are reported, the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding excludes common stock equivalents, because their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.


Recently issued accounting standards


There are no accounting standards or interpretations issued or recently adopted that are expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, operations or cash flows.

CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURES

ITEM 9A.

CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.


Disclosure Controls and Procedures


We maintain disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act"), that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission's rules and forms and that such 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 carried out 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 December 31, 2012.  Based on the evaluation of these disclosure controls and procedures, and in light of the material weaknesses found in our internal controls over financial reporting, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective.


Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting


Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f).  The Company’s internal control over financial reporting is a process designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.


Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements.  Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.


Under the supervision and with the participation of management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, the Company conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2012 using the criteria established in “Internal Control - Integrated Framework” issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission ("COSO").  


     

A material weakness is a deficiency, or combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.  In its assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2012, the Company determined that there were control deficiencies that constituted material weaknesses, as described below.


      

1.     

We do not have an Audit Committee – While not being legally obligated to have an audit committee, it is the management’s view that such a committee, including a financial expert member, is an utmost important entity level control over the Company’s financial statement.  Currently the Board of Directors acts in the capacity of the Audit Committee, and does not include a member that is considered to be independent of management to provide the necessary oversight over management’s activities.  

 

 

 

2.      

We did not maintain appropriate cash controls – As of December 31, 2012, the Company has not maintained sufficient internal controls over financial reporting for the cash process, including failure to segregate cash handling and accounting functions, and did not require dual signature on the Company’s bank accounts.  Alternatively, the effects of poor cash controls were mitigated by the fact that the Company had limited transactions in their bank accounts.

 

 

 

 

3.

We did not implement appropriate information technology controls – As at December 31, 2012, the Company retains copies of all financial data and material agreements; however there is no formal procedure or evidence of normal backup of the Company’s data or off-site storage of the data in the event of theft, misplacement, or loss due to unmitigated factors.  




15






Accordingly, the Company concluded that these control deficiencies resulted in a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis by the Company’s internal controls.

     

As a result of the material weaknesses described above, management has concluded that the Company did not maintain effective internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2012 based on criteria established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by COSO. 

  

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with our evaluation we conducted of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2012, that occurred during our fourth fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.  


This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting.  Managements 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.


Continuing Remediation Efforts to address deficiencies in Company’s Internal Control over Financial Reporting


Once the Company is engaged in a business of merit and has sufficient personnel available, then our Board of Directors, in particular and in connection with the aforementioned deficiencies, will establish the following remediation measures:


      

1.     

Our Board of Directors will nominate an audit committee or a financial expert on our Board of Directors in the next fiscal year.  

 

 

 

2.      

We will appoint additional personnel to assist with the preparation of the Company’s monthly financial reporting, including preparation of the monthly bank reconciliations.

Involvement in Certain Legal Proceedings


During the past ten years no director, executive officer, promoter or control person of the Company has been involved in the following:


(1)

A petition under the Federal bankruptcy laws or any state insolvency law which was filed by or against, or a receiver, fiscal agent or similar officer was appointed by a court for the business or property of such person, or any partnership in which he was a general partner at or within two years before the time of such filing, or any corporation or business association of which he was an executive officer at or within two years before the time of such filing;

Narrative Disclosure to Summary Compensation Table


On November 4, 2011, pursuant to the Asset Acquisition Agreement, the Company re-priced certain stock options that were granted pursuant to the Company’s 2009 Employee Stock Option Plan. These options were re-priced to $0.50 and then the stock price was adjusted to reflect the Company’s 1-2 reverse stock split. As a result, such options were re-priced to $1.00 per share. Additionally, the Company decided to reset all of the expiration dates to July 31, 2016.


There are no compensatory plans or arrangements, including payments to be received from the Company with respect to any executive officer, that would result in payments to such person because of his or her resignation, retirement or other termination of employment with the Company or its subsidiaries, any change in control, or a change in the person’s responsibilities following a change in control of the Company.

ITEM 13.

CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS, AND DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE


Related Party Transactions


Amro Albanna, former Chairman and CEO of the Company and currently a Director, is Chairman and CEO of Innovation Economy Corporation, a Delaware corporation and of Innovation Economy Initiative, a California corporation.


On June 15, 2011, the Company through a “Conversion and Release Agreement” with IEC exchanged 338 shares of OL Factor Laboratories, Inc in settlement of $31,067 of notes payable due to IEC.  In separate agreements between DADG and our Chairman and the Innovation Economy Initiative, the Company assigned 1,662 shares of OLI and 2,000 shares of Nano Engineered Applications (“NEA”) to IEC for settlement of $253,957 of notes payable.


Other than the foregoing, none of the directors or executive officers of the Company, nor any person who owned of record or was known to own beneficially more than 5% of the Company’s outstanding shares of its Common Stock, nor any associate or affiliate of such persons or companies, has any material interest, direct or indirect, in any transaction that has occurred during the past fiscal year, or in any proposed transaction, which has materially affected or will affect the Company.


With regard to any future related party transactions, we plan to fully disclose any and all related party transactions in the following manner:


·

Disclosing such transactions in reports where required;

·

Disclosing in any and all filings with the SEC, where required;

·

Obtaining disinterested directors consent; and

·

Obtaining shareholder consent where required.


Director Independence


For purposes of determining director independence, we have applied the definitions set out in NASDAQ Rule 5605(a)(2). The NASDAQ definition of “Independent Director” means a person other than an executive officer or employee of the Company or any other individual having a relationship which, in the opinion of the Company's Board of Directors, would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director.


 According to the NASDAQ definition, Richard Pak is not an independent director of the Company because he is also an executive officer.


Review, Approval or Ratification of Transactions with Related Persons


We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are not required to provide the information under this item.
