NOTES TO THE CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

Note 1. SWK Holdings Corporation and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
 
Nature of Operations
 
SWK Holdings Corporation (“the Company,” “SWK,” “we,” “us,” and “our”) was incorporated in July 1996 in California and reincorporated in Delaware in September 1999. Prior to December 23, 2009, the Company developed, marketed and supported customer communications software products. The Company sold its products primarily in North America, Europe and Asia, through its direct sales force and third party integrators. Since the completion of the Asset Sale (see Basis of Presentation below), the Company has been seeking to redeploy its cash to maximize value for its stockholders and is seeking, analyzing and evaluating potential candidates for acquisition or other investment. The Company’s goal is to redeploy its existing assets to acquire, or invest in, one or more operating businesses with existing or prospective taxable income, or from which it can realize capital gains, that can be offset by use of its net operating loss (“NOL”) carryforwards. The Company is using a value-focused strategy and is focusing its acquisition search on U.S.-based businesses. The Company continues to identify and review candidates for acquisition or other investment on an ongoing basis. The Company is unable to assure investors that it will find suitable candidates or that it will be able to utilize its existing NOL carryforwards.
 
Basis of Presentation
 
On December 23, 2009, the Company sold substantially all of its assets to Kay Technology (the “Asset Sale”) in exchange for cash consideration of $40.6 million, plus additional escrow funds that were received by the Company during 2010 and 2011. In addition, Kay Technology assumed certain of KANA’s (as defined below) liabilities in the transaction. As of June 30, 2011, the Company’s only material asset was its cash. The Company no longer has any material operating business. Although the notes are given in the present tense and, in some cases, the future tense, some of the information and analysis included in the following notes may not be applicable for 2011. 
 
Unaudited Interim Financial Information

The unaudited condensed financial statements have been prepared by the Company and reflect all normal, recurring adjustments that, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of the interim financial information. The results of operations for the interim periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any subsequent quarter or for the year ending December 31, 2011. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted under the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). These unaudited condensed financial statements and notes included herein should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010, filed with the SEC on March 30, 2011. The year-end condensed balance sheet data was derived from the Company’s audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of the condensed financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and the accompanying notes. On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates estimates, including those related to stock-based compensation, warrant liability valuation, useful lives of property and equipment, income taxes and contingencies and litigation, among others. The Company bases 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 sources. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates under different assumptions or conditions.
 
Cash Equivalents
 
The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity date of three months or less at the date of purchase to be cash equivalents. There were no such investments at June 30, 2011 and all cash was held in savings or checking accounts with financial institutions deemed by the Company to be creditworthy.
 
 
6

 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
The carrying values of the Company’s current financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, approximate their fair values due to their relatively short maturities or payment terms.
 
Certain Risks and Concentrations
 
Financial instruments subjecting the Company to concentrations of credit risk have consisted primarily of cash and cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents are deposited with financial institutions that management believes are creditworthy. Deposits in these institutions are in excess of federally insured amounts.
 
Net Loss per Share

Basic net loss per share is computed using the weighted average number of outstanding shares of common stock. Diluted net loss per share is computed using the weighted average number of outstanding shares of common stock and, when dilutive, shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of options and warrants deemed outstanding using the treasury stock method.
 
For the each of the three and six month period ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, outstanding stock options and warrants to purchase shares of common stock in an aggregate of approximately 2,544,000 and 2,250,000 shares, respectively, have been excluded from the calculation of diluted net loss per share as all such securities were anti-dilutive.

Reclassifications

Certain items previously reported in prior years’ financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation. Such reclassifications had no effect on previously reported total assets, stockholders’ equity, or net income (loss).
   
Note 2. Fair Value Measurement
 
The Company considers 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 at the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value are either observable or unobservable. Observable inputs reflect assumptions that market participants would use in pricing an asset or liability based on market data obtained from independent sources, while unobservable inputs reflect a reporting entity’s pricing based on their own market assumptions. The Company utilizes the following three-level fair value hierarchy to establish the priorities of the inputs used to measure fair value:
 
Level 1—instrument valuations are obtained from real-time quotes for transactions in active exchange markets involving identical assets.
 
Level 2—instrument valuations are obtained from sources other than quoted market prices included in Level 1, such as quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data.
 
Level 3—instrument valuations are obtained without observable market values and require a high level of judgment to determine the fair value.
 
The following table summarizes the Company’s financial liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2011 (in thousands):

Level 2
   
Level 3
 
Liabilities:
                       
  Warrant liability
  $ 2     $ -     $ -     $ 2  
 
The warrant liability decreased by $6,000 and $28,000 during the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, and these amounts were recognized as other income for the three and six month periods. The fair value was calculated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. See Note 7 for Black-Scholes assumptions used to determine fair value.

Note 3. Stockholders’ Equity
 
 (a) Stock Compensation Plans

The Company’s 1999 Stock Incentive Plan (the “1999 Stock Incentive Plan”), as successor to the 1997 Stock Option Plan (the “1997 Stock Option Plan”), provided for options to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock to be granted to employees, independent contractors, officers, and directors. The plan expired in July 2009. Options were granted at an exercise price equivalent to the closing fair market value on the date of grant. All options were granted at the discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors and had a term not greater than 10 years from the date of grant. Options are immediately exercisable when vested and generally vest monthly over four years. On December 23, 2009, in connection with the Asset Sale, all stock options, except those held by non-employee Directors, were accelerated to be fully vested and exercisable. As a result of the termination of all employees on December 23, 2009, all unexercised stock options held by employees were cancelled on March 31, 2010 in accordance with the Asset Purchase Agreement in the Asset Sale. The only remaining outstanding options as of June 30, 2011 were those held by the Company’s current and former directors.
 
The Company’s Board of Directors approved the 2010 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2010 Stock Incentive Plan”) in the fourth quarter of 2010. The 2010 Plan provides for options, restricted stock, and other customary forms of equity to be granted to the Company’s directors, officers, employees, and independent contractors. All forms of equity incentive compensation are granted at the discretion of the Company’s Board of Directors and have a term not greater than 10 years from the date of grant.

The following table summarizes activities under the equity incentive plans for the indicated periods:

At June 30, 2011, there were no options available for grant under the 1999 Stock Incentive Plan, and the Company had $0 of total unrecognized stock-based compensation expense under this Plan. On June 30, 2011, there were 4.1 million shares reserved for equity awards under the 2010 Stock Incentive Plan, and the Company had no unrecognized stock option compensation expense. At June 30, 2011, the Company had $114,000 of total unrecognized restricted stock compensation expense, net of estimated forfeitures, that will be recognized over the weighted average remaining period of 1.7 years.

Employee stock-based compensation recognized in the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model for estimating the fair value of options granted under the Company’s equity incentive plans. Risk-free interest rates for the options were taken from the Daily Federal Yield Curve Rates on the grant dates for the expected life of the options as published by the Federal Reserve. The expected volatility was based upon historical data and other relevant factors such as the Company’s changes in historical volatility and its capital structure, in addition to mean reversion. The expected forfeiture rate of employee stock options for 2011 and 2010 was calculated using the Company’s historical terminations data.
 
In calculating the expected life of stock options, the Company determines the amount of time from grant date to exercise date for exercised options and adjusts this number for the expected time to exercise for unexercised options. The expected time to exercise for unexercised options is calculated from grant as the midpoint between the expiration date of the option and the later of the measurement date or the vesting date. In developing the expected life assumption, all amounts of time are weighted by the number of underlying options.

No options were granted or exercised in the three and six months ended June 30, 2011. In the three months and six months ended June 30, 2010, there were no options granted and 21,733 options were exercised.
 
Note 4. Comprehensive Loss
 
Comprehensive loss is equal to net loss, as there were no foreign currency translation adjustments for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010.

Note 5. Commitments and Contingencies
  
(a) Litigation

In July 2001, the Company, its underwriters, and certain officers and directors were named as defendants in a securities class action lawsuit. This case is one of several hundred similar cases that have been consolidated into a single action.  The complaint alleges misstatements and omissions concerning underwriters’ compensation in connection with the Company’s initial public offering.  In February 2003, the Court denied a motion to dismiss that would have disposed of the claims against the Company.  A settlement proposal, which did not admit wrongdoing, had been approved by the Board and preliminarily approved by the Court.  While the parties’ request for court approval of the settlement was pending, in December 2006 the Court of Appeals reversed the District Court’s finding that six focus cases could be certified as class actions.  In April 2007, the Court of Appeals denied the plaintiffs’ petition for rehearing, but acknowledged that the District Court might certify a more limited class.  At a June 26, 2007 status conference, the Court terminated the proposed settlement as stipulated among the parties.  Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint on August 14, 2007.  On September 27, 2007, plaintiffs filed a motion for class certification in the six focus cases, which was withdrawn on October 10, 2008.  On November 13, 2007 defendants in the six focus cases filed a motion to dismiss the complaint for failure to state a claim, which the Court denied in March 2008.  Plaintiffs, the issuer defendants (including the Company), the underwriter defendants, and the insurance carriers for the defendants, engaged in mediation and settlement negotiations.  They reached a settlement agreement, which was submitted to the District Court for preliminary approval on April 2, 2009.  As part of this settlement, the Company’s insurance carrier agreed to assume the Company’s entire payment obligation under the terms of the settlement.  On June 10, 2009, the District Court granted preliminary approval of the proposed settlement agreement.  After a September 10, 2009 hearing, the District Court gave final approval to the settlement on October 5, 2009.  Several objectors have filed notices of appeal to the United States Court of Appeal for the Second Circuit from the District Court’s order granting final approval of the settlement.  Although the District Court has granted final approval of the settlement agreement, there can be no guarantee that it will not be reversed on appeal.  The Company believes that it has meritorious defenses to these claims.  If the settlement is not implemented and the litigation continues against the Company, the Company would continue to defend against this action vigorously.

In October 2007, a lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington by Ms. Vanessa Simmonds against certain of the underwriters of the Company’s initial public offering.  The plaintiff alleges that the underwriters violated section 16(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, by engaging in short-swing trades, and seeks disgorgement of profits from the underwriters in amounts to be proven at trial.  On February 28, 2008, Ms. Simmonds filed an amended complaint.  The suit names the Company as a nominal defendant, contains no claims against the Company and seeks no relief from the Company.  This lawsuit is one of more than fifty similar actions filed in the same court.  On July 25, 2008, the underwriter defendants in the various actions filed a joint motion to dismiss the complaints for failure to state a claim.  In addition, certain issuer defendants in the various actions filed a joint motion to dismiss the complaints for failure to state a claim.  The Company entered into a stipulation with the plaintiff, entered as an order by the Court, that the Company is not required to answer or otherwise respond to the amended complaint.  Accordingly, the Company did not join the motion to dismiss filed by certain issuers.  On March 12, 2009, the Court dismissed the complaint in this lawsuit with prejudice.  On April 10, 2009, the plaintiff filed a notice of appeal of the District Court’s order, and thereafter the underwriter defendants filed a cross appeal to a portion of the District Court’s order that dismissed thirty (30) of the cases without prejudice following the moving issuers’ motion to dismiss.  On May 22, 2009 the Ninth Circuit issued an order granting the parties’ joint motion to consolidate the 54 appeals and 30 cross-appeals.  On December 2, 2010, the Ninth Circuit affirmed dismissal of the lawsuits against the 30 issuer defendants on the grounds of inadequate demand, but ordered the district court to dismiss these lawsuits with prejudice.  The Ninth Circuit reversed dismissal on statute of limitations grounds, but remanded all of the remaining cases to the district court with instructions to allow the underwriter defendants and/or the remaining issuer defendants to file motions to dismiss for inadequate demand.  On December 16, 2010, plaintiff and the underwriter defendants separately petitioned for a rehearing and a rehearing en banc, which petitions were denied on January 18, 2011.  On January 25 and 26, 2011, the Ninth Circuit granted the motions of the underwriter defendants and of the plaintiff to stay the issuance of the court’s mandate pending those  parties’ respective petitions for writ of certiorari to the United States Supreme Court. The plaintiffs and the underwriter defendants filed petitions for writ of certiorari on April 5, 2011 and April 15, 2011, respectively. On June 27, 2011, the Supreme Court granted the underwriter defendants' petition for writ of certiorari and denied the plantiff's petition for writ of certiorari. 
 
The ultimate outcome of any litigation is uncertain, and either unfavorable or favorable outcomes could have a material negative impact on the Company’s results of operations, balance sheets and cash flows due to defense costs, and divert management resources.

Note 7. Warrant Liability
 
Effective January 1, 2009, the Company adopted authoritative guidance issued by the FASB eliminating an exemption to derivative treatment for certain financial instruments. As a result of adopting this guidance, warrants to purchase 1,914,586 shares of the Company’s common stock previously treated as equity pursuant to the derivative treatment exemption were no longer afforded equity treatment. These warrants have exercise prices ranging from $1.97 to $2.45 and expire in September or October 2012. Effective January 1, 2009, the Company reclassified the fair value of these warrants to purchase common stock from equity to a liability, as if these warrants were a derivative liability since their date of issue. On January 1, 2009, the Company reclassified the effects of prior accounting for the warrants in the amount of $1.8 million from additional paid-in capital to accumulated deficit, and $0.1 million from additional paid-in capital to warrant liability. The fair value is calculated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The assumptions that were used to calculate fair value as of June 30, 2011 were as follows:
 
   
Expiration Date
 
   
September 2012
   
October 2012
 
             
Risk-free interest rate
    0.19 %     0.19 %
Expected volatility
    31 %     30 %
Expected life (in years)
    1.3       1.3  
Dividend yield
    0 %     0 %
 
Note 8. Income Taxes

The Company recognizes interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions as a component of income tax expense. A reconciliation of the beginning and ending amount of unrecognized tax benefits, which is included in other long-term liabilities in the balance sheet as of June 30, 2011, is as follows (in thousands):

Beginning balance at January 1, 2011
  $ 89  
Additions for tax positions related to the current period
    3  
Ending balance at June 30, 2011
  $ 92

ITEM 2.
MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
In addition to historical information, this report contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. The forward-looking statements are not historical facts but rather are based on current expectations, estimates and projections about our business and industry, and our beliefs and assumptions. Words such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “estimate,” “expects,” “intend,” “plan,” “will” and variations of these words and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, many of which are beyond our control, are difficult to predict and could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or forecasted in the forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those described in “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this report. Forward-looking statements that were believed to be true at the time made may ultimately prove to be incorrect or false.
 
The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on March 30, 2011, and the financial statements and notes thereto. We undertake no obligation to revise or publicly release the results of any revision to these forward-looking statements. Given these risks and uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements.

Overview

SWK Holdings Corporation, a Delaware corporation (the “Company” or “SWK”), was known until December 23, 2009 as KANA Software, Inc. (“KANA”) and was headquartered in Menlo Park, California. As used in this report, “we,” “us,” “our,” and words of similar meaning refer to SWK Holdings Corporation.

From 1996 to December 23, 2009, the Company engaged in the development, marketing and support of customer communications software products.  

Following an extensive strategic process, on October 26, 2009, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) with Kay Technology Corp., Inc. (“Kay Technology”), an affiliate of Accel-KKR Capital Partners III, L.P. (“AKKR”). Pursuant to this agreement, on December 23, 2009, the Company sold substantially all of its assets to Kay Technology (the “Asset Sale”) in exchange for cash consideration of $40.6 million. In addition, Kay Technology assumed certain of KANA’s liabilities in the transaction. Of the $40.6 million in consideration, $38.6 million was paid in cash to the Company at closing and $1.0 million was paid into escrow to satisfy SWK’s indemnification obligations for certain specified contingencies. An additional $1.0 million was paid into escrow to satisfy our obligations under any potential downward “true-up” adjustments to the purchase price following the closing (the “Purchase Price Escrow”). During the second quarter of 2010, we received the full amount of the $1.0 million Purchase Price Escrow. In December 2010 and March 2011, we received approximately $482,000 and $167,000, respectively, from the indemnification escrow; the remainder of this escrow was paid to Kay Technology for allowable expenses in resolving the matters covered by the escrow. As of June 30, 2011, no further material proceeds are expected to be received from the Asset Sale as no other funds remain in escrow.
At the closing of the Asset Sale, the Company amended its certificate of incorporation to change its name from Kana Software, Inc. to SWK Holdings Corporation and relocated its headquarters to Provo, Utah. Since the completion of the Asset Sale, we have been seeking to redeploy our cash to maximize value for our stockholders and are seeking, analyzing and evaluating potential acquisition candidates. Our goal is to redeploy our existing assets to acquire or invest in one or more operating businesses with existing or prospective taxable income, or from which we can realize capital gains, that can be offset by use of our NOL carryforwards. We are using a value-focused strategy and are focusing our acquisition search on U.S.-based businesses. We continue to identify and review candidates for acquisition or other investment on an ongoing basis.  We are unable to assure that we will find suitable candidates or that we will be able to utilize our existing NOL carryforwards. 
 
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
 
Our critical accounting policies and estimates are described in Part II, Item 7, “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 30, 2011. We believe there have been no new critical accounting policies or material changes to our existing critical accounting policies and estimates during the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to those discussed in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
Information with respect to Recent Accounting Pronouncements may be found in Note 1 to the Notes to the Unaudited Condensed Financial Statements in “Part I. Financial Information — Item 1. Financial Statements” of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
 
In December 2010, the FASB issued authoritative guidance on disclosure of supplementary pro forma information for business combinations. The new guidance requires that pro forma financial information should be prepared as if the business combination occurred as of the beginning of the prior annual period. The new guidance also expands the required supplemental pro forma disclosures to include a description of the nature and amount of material, nonrecurring pro forma adjustments directly attributable to the business combination included in the reported pro forma revenue and earnings. The guidance is effective for the Company as of the current quarter end and will be applied prospectively to business combinations for which the acquisition date is after the effective date. The adoption of this guidance will not impact the Company’s financial positions, results of operations or cash flows.
 
Revenues
 
The Company had no revenues for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 or 2010 as a result of the Asset Sale.
 
General and Administrative Expenses
 
General and administrative expenses consist primarily of compensation and related costs for management, staff, Board of Directors, legal and audit expenses, and corporate governance. General and administrative expenses decreased by 12% to $0.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011 from $0.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010 due to higher professional fees and Board of Director expenses in 2010. General and administrative expenses decreased by 32% to $0.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011 from $1.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010 due to higher audit and professional fees that were incurred in 2010 after the Asset Sale. As of June 30, 2011, we had 3 full-time general and administrative employees compared to 3 such employees as of June 30, 2010.
 
Gain on the Sale of Assets
 
The Company recorded a $167,000 gain from the collection of escrow funds from the Asset Sale for the six months ended June 30, 2011; no such gain was recorded in the three months ended June 30, 2011 or in the three or six months ended June 30, 2010. No further funds remain in escrow.
 
Interest and Other Income, Net
 
Interest and other income, net consists primarily of interest income and the change in fair value of warrant liability. Income from the decrease in the fair value of our warrants was approximately $6,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared to an expense from the increase in such fair value of $21,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2010. Income from the decrease in the fair value of our warrants was approximately $28,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to income from the decrease in such fair value of $61,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2010. Interest income and other income consists of interest earned on cash and cash equivalents and was approximately $64,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and $71,000 for the three months ended June 30, 2010. Interest income and other income consists of interest earned on cash and cash equivalents and was approximately $127,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and $137,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2010.The decrease in interest income related to lower interest rates in the three and six months ended June 30, 2011compared to the same periods in 2010 on approximately equal average cash balances.
 
Provision for Income Taxes
 
We have a history of net operating losses on a consolidated basis from inception through June 30, 2011. Accordingly, we have recorded a valuation allowance for the full amount of our gross deferred tax assets, as the future realization of the tax benefit for accounting purposes is not “currently more likely than not.”
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
As of June 30, 2011, we had $38.8 million in cash compared to $39.3 million in cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2010. As of June 30, 2011, we had working capital of $38.8 million, compared to working capital of $39.1 million as of December 31, 2010.

Primary Driver of Cash Flow
 
Our ability to generate cash in the future depends primarily upon our success in acquiring or investing in one or more businesses. Since the timing of any acquisition or investment is difficult to predict, we may not be able to generate positive cash flow in any particular future period. In addition, the interest rate that we receive on our cash will affect our ability to cover our administrative expenses. Given low current interest rates, we do not anticipate that our interest income will be sufficient to cover our administrative expenses for the foreseeable future. Additionally, our net losses since the Asset Sale has been partially offset by gains from our escrow collections. No further funds remain in escrow, and as such, our net losses may increase from historical levels since the Asset Sale if we are not successful in acquiring or investing in a business.
 
Operating Cash Flow
 
We had negative cash flow from operating activities of $0.6 million for the first six months of 2011, which included a $0.4 million net loss, a $0.2 million gain from the collection of escrow funds from the Asset Sale, and a $0.1 million decrease in accounts payable. Our operating activities used $0.9 million of cash for the first six months of 2010, which included a $0.8 million net loss.
 
Investing Cash Flow
 
The Company’s investing activities provided $0.2 million and $1.4 million of cash for the first six months of 2011 and 2010, respectively, which consisted of collections from the Asset Sale in both years.
 
Financing Cash Flow
 
Our financing activities generated $0 and $18,000 for the first six months of 2011 and 2010, respectively. Financing activities consisted of proceeds from stock option exercises in 2010.
 
Existence and Timing of Contractual Obligations

As of June 30, 2011, the Company had no outstanding debt commitments.

The Company subleases approximately 2,300 square feet on a month-to-month basis under an agreement with Nightwatch Capital Advisors, LLC, a company of which John Nemelka, our Interim Chief Executive Officer is the Managing Principal, and Paul Burgon, our Interim Chief Financial Officer, is a Principal and the Chief Financial Officer. The rent under this sublease is approximately $4,100 per month.
 
Off-Balance-Sheet Arrangements
 
As of June 30, 2011, the Company did not have any off-balance-sheet arrangements, as defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of SEC Regulation S-K.
 
Outlook
 
As of June 30, 2011, the Company had no operating business. The Company does not expect to generate any income other than interest income until it acquires or invests in the business or assets of another company or develops other sources of income. The Company estimates that its capital resources are adequate to fund its limited operating activities for twelve months from the balance sheet date.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
Disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including the Interim Chief Executive Officer and the Interim Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.
 
In connection with the preparation of this report, our management, under the supervision and with the participation of the Interim Chief Executive Officer and Interim Chief Financial Officer, conducted an evaluation 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.

ITEM 1.
LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
In July 2001, the Company, its underwriters, and certain officers and directors were named as defendants in a securities class action lawsuit. This case is one of several hundred similar cases that have been consolidated into a single action.  The complaint alleges misstatements and omissions concerning underwriters’ compensation in connection with the Company’s initial public offering.  In February 2003, the Court denied a motion to dismiss that would have disposed of the claims against the Company.  A settlement proposal, which did not admit wrongdoing, had been approved by the Board and preliminarily approved by the Court.  While the parties’ request for court approval of the settlement was pending, in December 2006 the Court of Appeals reversed the District Court’s finding that six focus cases could be certified as class actions.  In April 2007, the Court of Appeals denied the plaintiffs’ petition for rehearing, but acknowledged that the District Court might certify a more limited class.  At a June 26, 2007 status conference, the Court terminated the proposed settlement as stipulated among the parties.  Plaintiffs filed an amended complaint on August 14, 2007.  On September 27, 2007, plaintiffs filed a motion for class certification in the six focus cases, which was withdrawn on October 10, 2008.  On November 13, 2007 defendants in the six focus cases filed a motion to dismiss the complaint for failure to state a claim, which the Court denied in March 2008.  Plaintiffs, the issuer defendants (including the Company), the underwriter defendants, and the insurance carriers for the defendants, engaged in mediation and settlement negotiations.  They reached a settlement agreement, which was submitted to the District Court for preliminary approval on April 2, 2009.  As part of this settlement, the Company’s insurance carrier agreed to assume the Company’s entire payment obligation under the terms of the settlement.  On June 10, 2009, the District Court granted preliminary approval of the proposed settlement agreement.  After a September 10, 2009 hearing, the District Court gave final approval to the settlement on October 5, 2009.  Several objectors have filed notices of appeal to the United States Court of Appeal for the Second Circuit from the District Court’s order granting final approval of the settlement.  Although the District Court has granted final approval of the settlement agreement, there can be no guarantee that it will not be reversed on appeal.  The Company believes that it has meritorious defenses to these claims.  If the settlement is not implemented and the litigation continues against the Company, the Company would continue to defend against this action vigorously.

The plaintiffs and the underwriter defendants filed petitions for writ of certiorari on April 5, 2011 and April 15, 2011, respectively. On June 27, 2011, the Supreme Court granted the underwriter defendants' petition for writ of certiorari and denied the plaintiff's petition for writ of certiorari. 
 
The ultimate outcome of any litigation is uncertain, and either unfavorable or favorable outcomes could have a material negative impact on the Company’s results of operations, balance sheets and cash flows due to defense costs, and divert management resources.
