NOTES TO UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE THREE AND SIX MONTHS ENDED NOVEMBER 30, 2012

(UNAUDITED)

 

1.     Nature of Operations, Basis of Presentation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies:

 

Nature of Operations

 

Effective December 31, 2007, Stark Beneficial, inc. (the “Company” “we” “us” “our”) approved and authorized a plan of quasi reorganization and restatement of accounts to eliminate the accumulated deficit and related capital accounts on the Company’s balance sheet. The Company concluded its period of reorganization after reaching a settlement agreement with all of its significant creditors. The Company, as approved by its Board of Directors, elected to state its May 31, 2008, balance sheet as a “quasi reorganization”, pursuant to ASC 852. These rules require the revaluation of all assets and liabilities to their current values through a current charge to earnings and the elimination of any deficit in retained earnings by charging paid-in capital. From June 1, 2008 forward, the Company has recorded net income (and net losses) to retained earnings and (and net losses) to retained earnings and (accumulated deficit).

 

Our current activities are related to seeking new business opportunities. We will use our limited personnel and financial resources in connection with such activities. It may be expected that pursuing a new business opportunity will involve the issuance of restricted shares of common stock.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The interim unaudited Financial Statements presented herein have been prepared by us in accordance with the accounting policies described in our May 31, 2012 audited financial statements included in Form 10-K. Certain information and disclosures normally included in the notes to the annual financial statements have been condensed or omitted from these interim financial statements and therefore, should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and Notes for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2012. The May 31, 2012 balance sheet is derived from those statements.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of these interim unaudited financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an on going basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related intangible assets, income taxes, insurance obligations, fair value of contributed services and contingencies and litigation. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other resources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

 

In the opinion of management, the information furnished in these interim financial statements reflect all adjustments necessary for a fair statement of the financial position and results of operations and cash flows as of and for the three and six month periods ended November 30, 2012 and 2011. All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. The financial statements do not include some information and notes necessary to conform with annual reporting requirements.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

For the purposes of the unaudited statements of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. There were no cash equivalents at November 30, 2012 and May 31, 2011 respectively.

FOR THE THREE AND SIX MONTHS ENDED NOVEMBER 30, 2012

(UNAUDITED)

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company’s financial instruments, including accounts payable, accrued expenses and related party advances, are carried at historical cost basis. At November 30, 2012, the carrying amounts of these instruments approximated their fair values because of the short-term nature of these instruments.

 

Net Loss Per Share

 

Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing income available to common shareholders (the numerator) by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding (the denominator) for the period. Diluted earnings per share assume that any dilutive convertible securities outstanding were converted, with related preferred stock dividend requirements and outstanding common shares adjusted accordingly. It also assumes that outstanding common shares were increased by shares issuable upon exercise of those stock options for which market price exceeds the exercise price, less shares which could have been purchased by us with the related proceeds. In periods of losses, diluted loss per share is computed on the same basis as basic loss per share as the inclusion of any other potential shares outstanding would be anti-dilutive. All per share disclosures retroactively reflect shares outstanding or issuable as though the reverse split had occurred May 31, 2007. The Company did not have any anti-dilutive securities outstanding as of November 30, 2012.

 

New Accounting Pronouncements

 

There are no new accounting pronouncements during the three and six month period ended November 30, 2012, that effect the financial position of the Company or the results of its’ operations. Any Accounting Standard Updates which are not effective until after November 30, 2012, are not expected to have a significant effect on the Company’s financial position or results of its’ operations.

 

Emerging Growth Company Critical Accounting Policy Disclosure

 

We qualify as an “emerging growth company” under the 2012 JOBS Act. Section 107 of the JOBS Act provides that an emerging growth company can take advantage of the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act for complying with new or revised accounting standards. As an emerging growth company, we can delay the adoption of certain accounting standards until those standards would otherwise apply to private companies. We have elected to take advantage of the benefits of this extended transition period.

 

2.     Going Concern

 

As reflected in the accompanying unaudited financial statements for the six months ended November 30, 2012, the Company had net losses of $17,285. Additionally, at November 30, 2012, the Company had a working capital deficit of $59,257, an accumulated deficit of $155,757 and a stockholders’ deficit of $59,257. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Stark Beneficial currently plans to satisfy its cash requirements for the next 12 months through borrowing from its officer and director or companies affiliated with its officer and director and believes it can satisfy its cash requirements so long as it is able to obtain financing from these affiliated entities.

 

The unaudited financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

3.     Stockholders’ Equity:

 

Reverse Stock Split

 

On December 7, 2007 we declared a reverse split of our common stock. The formula provided that every twenty (20) issued and outstanding shares of common stock of the Corporation be automatically split into 1 share of common stock. Any resulting share ownership interest of fractional shares was rounded up to the first whole integer in such a manner that all rounding was done to the next single share and each and every shareholder would own at least 100 shares. The reverse stock split was effective December 28, 2007 for holders of record as of that date. Except as otherwise noted, all share, option and warrant numbers (as applicable) have been restated to give retroactive effect to this reverse split. All per share disclosures retroactively reflect shares outstanding or issuable as though the reverse split had occurred May 31, 2007.

 

Common Stock

 

We are currently authorized to issue up to 300,000,000 shares of $0.001 par value common stock. All issued shares of common stock are entitled to vote on a 1 share/1 vote basis.

 

October 16, 2007, in exchange for approximately $2,500 of capital investments by Century Capital Partners we issued 2,100,000 shares of restricted $0.001 par value common stock. Mr. Anthony is the managing member of CCP and has sole voting and dispositive control.

 

Preferred Stock

 

On May 23, 2012 we filed a Certificate of Amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation with the State of Delaware to increase the authorized preferred stock from 10,000,000 shares to 20,000,000 shares and to designate 5,000,000 shares as Series B Preferred Stock. Each share of the Series B Preferred Stock entitles the holder thereof to 10 votes on all matters submitted to a vote of shareholders; is convertible into 10 shares of common stock; has equal dividend rights with the common stock and has a $1.00 per share liquidation preference. On May 23, 2012 Corporate Services International, Inc. (a company owned and controlled by our CEO) (CCP) contributed $10,000 as paid in capital to Stark Beneficial in exchange for the 5,000,000 shares of Series B Preferred Stock.

 

4.     Related Party Transactions

 

Due Related Parties: Amounts due related parties consist of corporate reinstatement expenses and prior obligations paid or assumed by affiliates prior to the establishment of a bank account. Such items totaled $21,791 at November 30, 2012. Legal services provided to the company by Laura Anthony through Legal & Compliance, LLC (our CEO’s spouse) of which $30,000 was unpaid at November 30, 2012. During the six months ended November 30, 2012 services contributed by our CEO totaled $12,000 and services provided by our related party law firm totaled $5,000.

 

Fair value of services: The principal stockholder provided, without cost to the Company, his services, valued at $1,800 per month which totaled $10,800. The principal stockholder also provided, without cost to the Company, office space valued at $200 per month, which totaled $1,200. The total of these expenses ($12,000 and $6,000 for the six and three months ended November 30, 2012) is reflected in the statement of operations as general and administrative expenses with a corresponding contribution of paid-in capital.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

The following presentation of management’s discussion and analysis of the Company’s financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the Company’s unaudited financial statements, the accompanying unaudited notes thereto and other financial information appearing elsewhere in this report. This section and other parts of this report contain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. The Company’s actual results may differ significantly from the results discussed in the forward-looking statements.

 

Overview

 

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

 

have an auditor report on our internal controls over financial reporting pursuant to Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act;
   
comply with any requirement that may be adopted by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board regarding mandatory audit firm rotation or a supplement to the auditor’s report providing additional information about the audit and the financial statements (i.e., an auditor discussion and analysis);
   
submit certain executive compensation matters to shareholder advisory votes, such as “say-on-pay” and “say-on-frequency;” and
   
disclose certain executive compensation related items such as the correlation between executive compensation and performance and comparisons of the CEO’s compensation to median employee compensation.

 

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

 

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

 

Effective December 31, 2007, the Company approved and authorized a plan of quasi reorganization and restatement of accounts to eliminate the accumulated deficit and related capital accounts on the Company’s balance sheet. The Company concluded its period of reorganization after reaching a settlement agreement with all of its significant creditors. The Company, as approved by its Board of Directors, elected to state its May 31, 2008, balance sheet as a “quasi reorganization”, pursuant to ARB 43. These rules require the revaluation of all assets and liabilities to their current values through a current charge to earnings and the elimination of any deficit in retained earnings by charging paid-in capital. From June 1, 2008 forward, the Company has recorded net income (and net losses) to retained earnings and (and net losses) to retained earnings and (accumulated deficit).

Results of Operations

 

Our current activities are related to seeking new business opportunities. We will use our limited personnel and financial resources in connection with such activities. It may be expected that pursuing a new business opportunity will involve the issuance of restricted shares of common stock. At November 30, 2012, we had $0 of cash assets and $59,257 of current liabilities, $51,791 of which was due to related parties.

 

We have had no revenues during the six months ended November 30, 2012 or 2011. Our operating expenses for the six months ended November 30, 2012 were $17,285 and for the six months ended November 30, 2011 were $12,000 comprised of general and administrative expenses which mainly consisted of contributed services from our officer of $12,000 and legal services from a firm related to our officer of $5,000.

 

Management believes there exists numerous private operating businesses seeking the perceived benefits of operating as a publicly registered corporation whose common stock trades on the over the counter bulletin board or otc markets OTCQB. Perceived benefits may include increasing equity financing options, providing stock options or similar benefits as incentives to key employees, and achieving liquidity (subject to restrictions of applicable statutes), for all shareholders. Management further believes that certain private operating businesses prefer merging into a publicly registered company so as to eliminate the time and expense of conducting an initial public offering.

 

Although a private entity can file a Form 10 registration statement, this will not, in and of itself, entitle their securities to be quoted on any quotation medium or exchange. Consequently, management believes that the perceived benefits of a merger still outweigh the expenditure involved, including the potential expense of acquiring the publicly registered corporation itself and all legal and accounting expenses.

 

Owners of these private operating businesses will still incur significant legal and accounting costs in connection with the acquisition of a publicly registered corporation, including the costs of preparing Form 8K’s, 10K’s, 10Q’s and agreements and related reports and documents. The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 specifically requires that within four (4) days of completion of a merger or acquisition transaction with a private operating business, a Form 8-K be filed containing Form 10 information regarding the private operating company, including audited financial statements.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Management related parties have invested $12,500 into the Company in exchange for 2,100,000 shares of common stock and 5,000,000 shares of series B preferred stock since inception. In addition, management has loaned the Company $51,791 for ongoing expenses consisting of cash advances and payments to third parties and has contributed services which is reflected as additional paid-in capital. While we are dependent upon interim funding provided by management to pay professional fees and expenses, we have no written finance agreement with management to provide any continued funding. As of November 30, 2012 the Company had current liabilities of $59,257, $51,791 of which is due to related parties. In particular, management has loaned the Company $21,791 and the Company’s securities counsel, Laura Anthony, the wife of our officer and director, is owed $30,000 for legal services in connection with general corporate work, the Company’s Registration Statement and preparation and filing of annual and quarterly reports. Although we believe management will continue to fund the Company on an as needed basis, we do not have a written agreement requiring such funding. In addition, future management funding, will more than likely be in the form of loans, for which the Company will be liable to pay back.

 

The principal stockholder provided, without cost to the Company, his services, valued at $1,800 per month which totaled $5,400 for each of the quarters ended November 30 2011 and 2012. The principal stockholder also provided, without cost to the Company, office space valued at $200 per month, which totaled $600 for each of the quarters ended November 30, 2011 and 2012. The total of these expenses was reflected in the statement of operations as general and administrative expenses with a corresponding contribution of paid-in capital.

 

The Board of Directors of the Company has determined that the best course of action for the Company is to complete a business combination with an existing business. The Company has limited liquidity or capital resources. As of November 30, 2012, the Company had a cash balance of $0. In the event that the Company cannot complete a merger or acquisition and cannot obtain capital needs for ongoing expenses, including expenses related to maintaining compliance with the securities laws and filing requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the Company could be forced to cease operations.

Stark Beneficial currently plans to satisfy its cash requirements for the next 12 months through borrowing from its officer and director or companies affiliated with its officer and director and believes it can satisfy its cash requirements so long as it is able to obtain financing from these affiliated entities. Stark Beneficial currently expects that money borrowed will be used during the next 12 months to satisfy the Company’s operating costs, professional fees and for general corporate purposes. The Company may explore alternative financing sources, although it currently has not done so.

 

Stark Beneficial will use its limited personnel and financial resources in connection with seeking new business opportunities, including seeking an acquisition or merger with an operating company. It may be expected that entering into a new business opportunity or business combination will involve the issuance of a substantial number of restricted shares of common stock. If such additional restricted shares of common stock are issued, the shareholders will experience a dilution in their ownership interest in the Company. If a substantial number of restricted shares are issued in connection with a business combination, a change in control may be expected to occur.

 

In connection with the plan to seek new business opportunities and/or effecting a business combination, the Company may determine to seek to raise funds from the sale of restricted stock or debt securities. The Company has no agreements to issue any debt or equity securities and cannot predict whether equity or debt financing will become available at acceptable terms, if at all.

 

There are no limitations in the certificate of incorporation on the Company’s ability to borrow funds or raise funds through the issuance of capital stock to effect a business combination. The Company’s limited resources and lack of recent operating history may make it difficult to borrow funds or raise capital. Such inability to borrow funds or raise funds through the issuance of capital stock required to effect or facilitate a business combination may have a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition and future prospects, including the ability to complete a business combination. To the extent that debt financing ultimately proves to be available, any borrowing will subject the Company to various risks traditionally associated with indebtedness, including the risks of interest rate fluctuations and insufficiency of cash flow to pay principal and interest, including debt of an acquired business.

 

The Company currently has no plans to conduct any research and development or to purchase or sell any significant equipment. The Company does not expect to hire any employees during the next 12 months.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Emerging Growth Company

 

We are an “emerging growth company” under the federal securities laws and will be subject to reduced public company reporting requirements. In addition, Section 107 of the JOBS Act also provides that an “emerging growth company” can take advantage of the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act for complying with new or revised accounting standards. In other words, an “emerging growth company” can delay the adoption of certain accounting standards until those standards would otherwise apply to private companies. We are choosing to take advantage of the extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Use of Estimates: The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statement and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from the estimates.

 

5
 

  

Cash and Cash Equivalents: For financial statement presentation purposes, the Company considers those short-term, highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less to be cash or cash equivalents.

 

Stock Based Compensation: Stock-based awards are accounted for using the fair value method in accordance with ASC 718, Share-Based Payments. Our primary type of share-based compensation consists of stock options. We use the Black-Scholes option pricing model in valuing options. The inputs for the valuation analysis of the options include the market value of the Company’s common stock, the estimated volatility of the Company’s common stock, the exercise price of the warrants and the risk free interest rate.

 

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

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

Emerging Growth Company Critical Accounting Policy Disclosure: We qualify as an “emerging growth company” under the 2012 JOBS Act. Section 107 of the JOBS Act provides that an emerging growth company can take advantage of the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act for complying with new or revised accounting standards. As an emerging growth company, we can delay the adoption of certain accounting standards until those standards would otherwise apply to private companies. We have elected to take advantage of the benefits of this extended transition period.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as of the end of the period covered by this report (the “Evaluation Date”). Based upon the evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded as of the Evaluation Date that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective. Disclosure controls are controls and procedures designed to reasonably ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act, such as this report, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls include controls and procedures designed to reasonably ensure 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.

 

There were no significant changes in the Company’s internal controls or in other factors that could significantly affect these controls subsequent to that evaluation, and there were no significant deficiencies or material weaknesses in such controls requiring corrective actions.

 

Evaluation of and Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

The management of the Registrant is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. Internal control over financial reporting is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) or 15d-15(f) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the company’s principal executive and principal financial officers and effected by the company’s board of directors, management and other personnel, 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 and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

   Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company;
        
   Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and
        
   Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. 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. All internal control systems, no matter how well designed, have inherent limitations. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. Because of the inherent limitations of internal control, there is a risk that material misstatements may not be prevented or detected on a timely basis by internal control over financial reporting. However, these inherent limitations are known features of the financial reporting process. Therefore, it is possible to design into the process safeguards to reduce, though not eliminate, this risk.
