ITEM 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS.

OVERVIEW
 
Spectral Capital Corporation ("Spectral" or the Company, also "We or Us") is a technology company focused on the identification, acquisition, development, financing of technology that has the potential to transform existing industries. We look for technology that can be protected through patents or laws regarding trade secrets.  Spectral has acquired significant stakes in two technology companies currently and actively works with management to drive these companies toward increasing market penetration in their particular verticals.  Spectral intends to own, in full or in part, technology companies whose founders and key management can take advantage of the deep networks and experience in technology development embodied in Spectral management.

CORPORATE HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT
 
We were incorporated in the State of Nevada on September 13, 2000 as Galaxy Championship Wrestling, Inc., a media and entertainment company focused on developing, producing and marketing live entertainment in the professional wrestling sphere.
 
On March 31, 2004, unable to generate sufficient revenues to sustain our professional wrestling business, we ceased operations in this field and began exploring other business opportunities.
 
Also on March 31, 2004 our controlling shareholders entered into a certain private stock purchase agreement, wherein they sold an aggregate of 5,750,000 of our common shares, representing a sixty-two and seventeen twentieths percent (62.85%) controlling interest, to an unrelated third party.
 
By certificate of amendment filed June 17, 2004, we changed our name from Galaxy Championship Wrestling, Inc. to FUSA Capital Corporation.
 
During the period from March 31, 2004 until March 7, 2005 we had no meaningful operations and did not carry on any active business, focusing instead on identifying and evaluating the merits of alternative potential business and acquisition opportunities which might allow us to restart operations.
 
On March 7, 2005 we entered into a certain plan and agreement of reorganization with FUSA Technology Investments Corp. ("FTIC"), a Nevada corporation engaged in the emerging growth field of audio and video search engine technology, whereby we acquired all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of FTIC in addition to obtaining certain intellectual property concepts related to search engine technology as developed by FTIC and its principals. In March of 2005 we also entered into a 3 for one stock dividend payable to our shareholders.
 
 From April, 2005 until September 2010, we were engaged continuously in the development and operation of consumer focused media search engine technologies and portals. During the last nine months of 2009, we began to substantially curtail our operations and ongoing technology development as a consequence of (i) having completed a substantial portion of our planned principal technology development work and (ii) being unable to raise sufficient funds through revenue or sales of debt or equity securities to continue our previous levels of operation and development.  We ceased operating our Internet properties in December 2010.

We had consistently lost money on our on-line consumer media properties due to the expenses involved in hosting, promotion, development and management of those sites.  In an effort to maintain as much traffic as possible on our most popular media site, www.searchforvideo.com, which is also responsible for a large proportion of our expenses, we contracted with Brass Consulting Ltd. to maintain the site in exchange for net revenue produced from the site.  This agreement was cancellable after 30 days notice. We cancelled this agreement in September 2009.   We were not able to operate the site properly internally or through an external provider.
 
On June 29, 2009, our Board of Directors resolved to amend the Articles of Incorporation pursuant to Nevada Revised Statues 78.207 to decrease the number of authorized shares of our common stock, par value $0.0001, from 500,000,000 to 333,333 shares. Correspondingly, our Board of Directors affirmed a reverse split of one thousand and five hundred (1,500) to one (1) in which each shareholder was issued one (1) share in exchange for every one thousand and five hundred (1,500) common shares of their currently issued common stock. The record date for the reverse split was July 6, 2009.

On July 27, 2010, our shareholders voted to change our name to Spectral Capital Corporation and to increase number of shares of our authorized common stock from 333,333, par value $0.0001 to 500,000,000, par value $0.0001.

On August 18, 2010, we entered into a financing with a third party, Trafalgar Wealth Management.  Under the terms of the financing, for aggregate consideration of $50,000 or $0.001 per common share, we sold 50,000,000 common shares and issued warrants to purchase 10,000,000 common shares at an exercise price of $1.00 per share.  Under the terms of the agreements as amended in 2011, subject to certain terms and conditions, Trafalgar is obligated to exercise at least $1,000,000 worth of these warrants over the next 24 months or Spectral will receive back 5,000,000 of the shares.

2

Pursuant to a notice of conversion by holders of our April 2009 promissory notes, we converted the outstanding of interest and principal under the notes, which was in excess of $50,000, for a settled amount of $50,000.  Under the terms of the April 2009 note, we are required to convert these shares at the current financing price of $0.001 per share.  Therefore, on August 18, 2010 we issued 50,000,000 shares to various holders of the April 2009 promissory notes, which represents 49.9% of our current issued and outstanding shares.

In September 2010, the Company purchased an interest in mineral properties in the Chita region of the Russian Federation. The Kadara and Kaltagay license is located in the Mogochinsky district of the Chita Region in the Russian Federation. Initially, we purchased 47% of the License for prospecting, exploration and production of gold and all other metals. The length of the License runs to August 31, 2031. The size of the License is 186 square kilometers or 18,200 hectares. Development and exploration activities are currently being undertaken. In December, 2010, we purchased an additional interest of 5% in this property, bringing our total interest in the property to 52%.

In January, 2011, we purchased a 65% interest in mineral properties in the Bayankol River region of Kazakhstan ("Bayankol").

In July, 2011, we conveyed our interest in our Chita property back to our counterparty in exchange for cancellation of warrants to purchase Spectral common stock issued in the transaction and our right to be reimbursed for incurred costs to date.   We have not yet sought any reimbursement under this agreement.

In September, 2011, we developed a partnership in Saratov, Russia to acquire and develop oil leases in the region.

In December, 2011, we restructured our interest in our Bayankol property The agreement rescinded the original transaction of January 14, 2011 and the previously issued warrants were cancelled.  Spectral agreed to issue 1,000,000 common shares of Spectral stock in exchange for an option to purchase 65% of the property.  Spectral will also have an obligation to find third party debt financing of $200,000,000 over five years to maintain its interest in the Bayankol property.

In February, 2012, we acquired a 60% interest in a Canadian oil and gas field in the Red Earth region of Alberta for a cash payment of $750,000, which we paid.  Under the agreement, we also had the right to fund additional drilling on the property up to $17,500,000 on a secured creditor basis.  The property is currently in production and producing oil.  There are eight permitted drilling locations on the property.

In December, 2012, the Company entered into an agreement with Akoranga AG, a Company owned by the CEO of Spectral, to transfer its ownership interests in the Alberta oil and gas properties for $950,000, the value of Spectral's contributions to the project to date. In satisfaction of the purchase price, Akoranga agreed to offset liabilities of Spectral in the amount of $626,022.  The balance owing of $323,978 is non-interest bearing and was to be repaid within a one year period. Subsequent to the year ended December 31, 2013, the fulfillment of the agreement was extended to December 31, 2014.
On February 26, 2013, Spectral Capital Corporation, through its subsidiary, Spectral Holdings, Inc. signed a definitive Technology Acquisition Agreement ("Agreement") to acquire mobile search engine and mobile sharing technology from Fiveseas Securities Ltd.  Under the Agreement, Spectral issued Fiveseas 5,000,000 common shares of Spectral Capital Corporation, par value $0.0001.  The Agreement calls for the technology to reside within a newly formed entity called Noot Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation, which Spectral is a 60% owner of and Fiveseas is a 40% owner of. Fiveseas was granted a right of first refusal for any subsequent sale of the technology.
On March 7, 2013, Spectral sold 1,650,000 common shares, par value $0.0001 at approximately $0.61 per share and received a total of $1,000,000 USD in financing proceeds.  Spectral also issued warrants to purchase 1,650,000 common shares, par value $0.0001 to the purchasers at an exercise price of $0.80 per share.  The warrants expired on March 6, 2015.  The shares were sold in a private placement to a non-US purchaser.  There were no commissions paid in the financing and no registration rights granted.
3

On March 14, 2013, Spectral Capital Corporation purchased 8% of the issued and outstanding shares of Kontexto, Inc., a Canadian corporation.  Spectral purchased the shares from Sargas Capital, Ltd., a minority shareholder, in exchange for 5,000,000 common shares of Spectral stock, par value $0.0001 and warrants to purchase 5,000,000 common shares at $0.85 per share, expiring on March 13, 2015.  There were no commissions associated with the transaction and the shares were issued to non US shareholders of a Sargas Capital, Ltd., a Canadian company. The Company's CEO is an officer of Sargas Capital, Ltd. but does not have any holdings in Sargas Capital, Ltd.
On December 1, 2013, Spectral Capital Corporation, through its subsidiary, Spectral Holdings, Inc. signed a definitive Technology Acquisition Agreement ("Agreement") to acquire a technology application and service that enhances the way people find, consume, analyze, share and discuss financial news and topics, equities, commodities and currencies on the web from TL Global Inc.  Under the Agreement, Spectral issued TL Global Inc. 5,000,000 common shares of Spectral Capital Corporation, par value $0.0001.  The Agreement calls for the technology to reside within a newly formed entity called Monitr Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation, which Spectral is a 60% owner of and TL Global Inc. is a 40% owner of. TL Global Inc. was granted a right of first refusal for any subsequent sale of the technology.
Our principal executive offices are located at 701 Fifth Avenue, Suite 4200, Seattle, Washington 98104. Our phone number is (206) 262-7820.  The Company's year end is December 31.

PRINCIPAL PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
 
Spectral is focused on the identification, acquisition, development, financing of technology that has the potential to transform existing industries. We look for technology that can be protected through patents or laws regarding trade secrets.  Spectral has acquired significant stakes in two technology companies currently and actively works with management to drive these companies toward increasing market penetration in their particular verticals.  Spectral intends to own, in full or in part, technology companies whose founders and key management can take advantage of the deep networks and experience in technology development embodied in Spectral management.
 
Companies within the technology development and commercialization sector have a variety of areas of principal competence.  Some companies focus on aggressively developing a portfolio of intellectual property and then licensing that property and defending it through litigation.  Others focus on a technology embodied in a software product or device which has the potential to be acquired by businesses and/or consumers at a profit.  Others seek to develop and commercialize technology that attracts a significant number of users who can be monetized through advertising. Of course, technology development and commercialization is a vast and complex field.  Spectral has had an initial focus on information technology with a direct value proposition to businesses or consumers.

Like all companies that seek to develop a portfolio of high impact technologies and the corporate and organizational structure to monetize those technologies, Spectral must do the specialized work of lowering the risk profile of the commercialization of a particular technology to the point where it is able to grow at a reasonable customer acquisition cost.

We have a deep management expertise, developed knowledge within the search, media and analytics fields, attractive positioning, the ability to identify and close transactions quickly and a willingness to invest in technology that is mispriced relative to its economic potential.  Although the 2008 financial crisis has abated and technology companies generally are enjoying some robust growth, it still remains a challenge for early stage technology companies to find the financial and human resources to foster required growth.  This challenge creates an environment where Spectral can seek out and find high impact technology and invest in or acquire this technology at reasonable valuations.

Our business differs from those companies whose capital reserves, successful previous ability to monetize technology and scale, efficiencies and existing customer base allow them to select and develop technology by flooding the technology with financial and human resources.  Spectral's approach is much more targeted.  We only develop technology that we believe has a very specific fit with our expertise and limited capital.  We develop technology that does not require massive investments in sale and marketing in order to reach an initial audience.

We currently have two technology companies in the Spectral portfolio, Noot, and Monitr.

Noot is a mobile technology company that has created "Noot" which utilizes proprietary search engine technology for mobile devices. Noot helps people easily find news, social media, photos and video that match their interests. The technology actually learns what users like and improves its results over time, providing very personalized information for the user. A key benefit of Noot is that the search engine continues to work even when the user is not actively searching and will discover new and relevant items without prompting, providing more enhanced and personalized information the next time the user searches for that topic. While Noot is no longer a working mobile application, as we have determined that the revenue potential did not meet our expectations, we are seeking alternative business opportunities to utilize the technology.
Monitr, launched in late 2014, is a technology and financial data services company. In September 2015, Monitr launched a significant update to its technology that makes it easy for the new or non-professional investor to find the stocks that are trending up in price at the moment. 
      
Monitr leverages cloud computing, big data and software to analyze the financial markets to discover those stocks that are trending now. Thousands of companies, news stories, blogs and opinion pieces are analyzed daily to uncover the trends and displayed in an accessible and easy-to-use web based interface for investors and traders.
   
Many investors use only a few sources to become informed of market conditions, Monitr provides investors with access to thousands of sources.
   
Monitr is offered at an accessible price for all types of investors
   
Monitr is independent and not being paid to promote stocks
   
Monitr is simple to use and removes a lot of guess work for new investors

 Monitr specializes in the analysis of news, opinion and social media to determine the aggregate sentiment and trends of equities, commodities and currencies across world markets.  In a change to its business model, Monitr no longer offers these services direct to individual customers for monthly or annual fees. Instead it has teamed with an outside vendor to provide this service and Monitr will receive a portion of the sales. In turn, Monitr believes that their expertise is best used to focus on selling its customized analysis and real time data to larger financial institutions and hedge funds for use in fundamental and algorithmic analysis of financial markets. Marketing to this sector will be the focus for Monitr going forward.

On September 30, 2015 one of Spectral´s portfolio companies, Kontexto, ceased operations and is no longer in business.

Competition

We compete with a wide variety of parties in connection with our efforts to: (i) attract users to our various Analytics, Search & Software portfolio companies and the ones we intend to develop; (ii) develop, market and distribute our current and anticipated B2C ("Business to Consumer") and B2B ("Business to Business") software applications ("Applications or Apps") as developed by our portfolio companies; (iii) attract third parties to distribute our Applications and related technology; and (iv) attract advertisers. In the case of our anticipated search services generally, our competitors include Google, Yahoo!, Facebook, Amazon and other destination search websites and search centric portals (some of which provide a broad range of content and services and/or link to various desktop applications), third party toolbar, convenience search and applications providers, other search technology and convenience service providers (including internet access providers, social media platforms, online advertising networks, traditional media companies and companies that provide online content). When we market our portfolio search and analytics services, we compete against a variety of established players and new entrants.
5


Moreover, some of our current and potential competitors have longer operating histories, greater brand recognition, larger customer bases and/or significantly greater financial, technical and marketing resources than we do. As a result, they have the ability to devote comparatively greater resources to the development and promotion of their products and services, which could result in greater market acceptance of their products and services relative to those offered by us.

In the case of our portfolio companies Noot and Monitr, we believe that our ability to compete successfully will depend primarily upon the relevance and authority of our search results, the usefulness of our analytics and other content, the functionality of our various Websites and software and the quality of related content and features and the attractiveness of the services provided by our technology generally to consumers and business relative to those of our competitors.

Marketing and Customers
Noot is no longer a working mobile application, however, its foundation of mobile search and machine learning is still relevant today. Given adequate funding to upgrade its software, we believe there are alternative markets in which Noot could enter. The mobile search sector has much room to grow.

Monitr has limited competitors, however, it is expected that new market entrants will continue to emerge , although the software is extremely technically challenging to produce. There are a few companies that are currently using software to detect trends on the market. Companies like Bloomberg, Thomson Reuters  and I Know First are competitors in the financial data services industry that use software to assist investors to make better trading decisions. Often these types of competitors attempt to capture a broad market and in doing so complicate the product to a level in which it becomes nearly impossible for an average investor to utilize the data. Monitr has kept its focus on building a product that any level of investor can come in and start utilizing without much effort. The other big differentiator from Monitr to other systems is the filtering so that end users can find the stocks that match their interest and taste for risk. Monitr has shifted its focus to market its services to banks and other financial companies over the coming year. To fill the void of marketing to individual investors, Monitr has teamed with an outside vendor who has created a multi lingual website for this purpose and Monitr will receive a portion of these sales..
 
Principal Agreements Affecting Our Ordinary Business

We do not have any current long term agreements that impact our business.
 
Information Technology Governmental Regulation

Our operations are subject to various rules, regulations and limitations impacting the information technology industry as whole.

Environmental Matters

We do not anticipate any significant impact of environmental regulations on our business.

OPERATIONS

Spectral is focused on the identification, acquisition, development, financing of early stage technology that has the potential to transform existing industries. We look for technology that addresses current market problems and that could be protected through patents or laws regarding trade secrets.  Spectral has acquired significant stakes in two technology companies currently and actively works with management to drive these companies toward increasing market penetration in their particular verticals.  Spectral intends to own, in full or in part, technology companies whose founders and key management can take advantage of the deep networks and experience in technology development embodied in Spectral management.

The majority of our operations consist of (1) the development and commercialization of portfolio technology; including attendant information security needs and providing consistent and reliable access to our applications/technology.

6

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT

We conducted development efforts regarding our previously held oil and gas properties.  As we have divested of our operating oil assets, we do not anticipate any additional development expenses in existing the natural resource sector.

For the year ended December 31, 2016, we have not incurred research and development expenses related to the development of our current software products and for our previous technology business. For Monitr, 2016 was used to test the software and gather historical data in order to share the results with prospective clients. Given an expected increase in sales for Monitr and any added investor capital, we intend to invest more into the technology over 2017 but we cannot forecast as to how much we can allocate for this purpose.
 
COMPETITION

Overview

Some of the largest and most technologically sophisticated and financially successful companies in the world compete in the search engine and software development space. Capital requirements in this space can easily run into the hundreds of millions of dollars and Spectral is in no way able to compete directly against its larger and more well-financed competitors with respect to technology brands which require hundreds of millions of dollars to be spent either on technology development or sales and marketing.  Instead, we tend to compete against much smaller companies, with limited capital resources, who are all looking at early stage technology companies which require 1-4 years of development and $2-$5 million dollars in financing in order to reach critical mass in an important market.

Therefore, Spectral, like its smaller competitors within this space, can compete only by having a low enough overhead, a flexible enough risk profile, patience, a willingness to secure expensive management and technological resources on a flexible project basis and the utilization of equity based incentives to attract talented personnel who find the risk reward profile of emerging growth companies appealing.

Failure of Competitors

Many of our smaller competitors fail because of improperly architected technology, excessive spending on sales and marketing, information technology security problems, the failure to secure required development capital, the inability to efficiently develop a customer acquisition program cost effectively and the inability to efficiently and cost effectively manage technology development.

Our Competitive Position

Because we currently have already acquired interests in two portfolio companies, our competitive position with respect to our existing projects is relevant to our ability to attract and retain key management personnel.   The technology sector is booming and successes like Google, Facebook and Twitter, as well as a proliferation of other mobile technologies, drive intense competition for executive talent in the industry.  As a smaller competitor without a track record operating in a booming area, we will have to offer significant cash and equity incentives to attract talented personnel.  As we have had some limited success to date in attracting officers and board members based on the strength of our portfolio companies to date, we believe that we are reasonably well positioned to compete for these human resources.

SIGNIFICANT CUSTOMERS AND SUPPLIERS

We are not particularly dependent on any one customer or supplier.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Overview

Our intellectual property consists almost exclusively of patentable or trade secret protectable software code and proprietary information technology architecture.

7

We regard our intellectual property rights, including trademarks, domain names, trade secrets, patents, copyrights and other similar intellectual property, as critical to our success.

The businesses within our Noot Search segment also rely upon trade secrets, including algorithms for the generation, organization and presentation of search results.  To a lesser extent, these businesses also rely upon patent-pending proprietary technologies and processes, primarily those relating to search-related products and services, with expiration dates for patented technologies ranging from 2027 and beyond, if filed, and copyrighted material, including trade dress.

We rely on a combination of laws and contractual restrictions with employees, customers, suppliers, affiliates and others to establish and protect our various intellectual property rights.

For example, we intend to apply to register and renew, or secure by contract where appropriate, trademarks and service marks as they are developed and used, and reserve, register and renew domain names as we deem appropriate.  Effective trademark protection may not be available or may not be sought in every country in which products and services are made available and contractual disputes may affect the use of marks governed by private contract.  Similarly, not every variation of a domain name may be available or be registered, even if available.

We also generally intend to seek to apply for patents or for other similar statutory protections as and if we deem appropriate, based on then current facts and circumstances, and will continue to do so in the future.  No assurances can be given that any patent application we will have filed will result in a patent being issued, or that any future patents will afford adequate protection.

We cannot be certain that the precautions we have taken to safeguard pending trademarks and trade secrets will provide meaningful protection from unauthorized use. If we must pursue litigation in the future to enforce or otherwise protect our intellectual property rights, or to determine the validity and scope of the proprietary rights of others, we may not prevail and will likely have to make substantial expenditures and divert valuable resources in the process. Moreover, we may not have adequate remedies if our intellectual property is appropriated or our trade secrets are disclosed.

Trademarks

We intend to apply for registration of a trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office in order to establish and protect our brand names as part of our intellectual property assets. As of the date of this annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, no filings have been made in application process.

Trade Secrets

Whenever we deem it important for purposes of maintaining the secrecy of information, such as sensitive and valuable search algorithms, we require parties with whom we share, or who otherwise are likely to become privy to, our trade secrets or other confidential information to execute and deliver to us confidentiality and/or non-disclosure agreements. Among others, this may include employees, consultants and other advisors, each of whom may require us to execute such an agreement upon commencement of their employment, consulting or advisory relationships. These agreements generally provide that all confidential information developed or made known to the individual by us during the course of the individual's relationship with us is to be kept confidential and not to be disclosed to third parties except under specific circumstances.

As of the date of this annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016, we have executed non-disclosure agreements with all of our key employees, consultants or advisors.

EMPLOYEES

For the year ended December 31, 2016, we had one full-time employee.

We are not subject to any collective bargaining agreements and believe that our relationships with our employees and consultants are good.

STOCKHOLDERS

As of March 31, 2017, there were approximately 90 holders of record of our common shares.

DIVIDENDS

From our inception we have never declared or paid any cash dividends on shares of our common stock and we do not anticipate declaring or paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future. The decision to declare any future cash dividends will depend upon our results of operations, financial condition, current and anticipated cash needs, contractual restrictions, restrictions imposed by applicable law and other factors that our board of directors deem relevant. Although it is our intention to utilize all available funds for the development of our business, no restrictions are in place that would limit our ability to pay dividends. The payment of any future cash dividends will be at the sole discretion of our board of directors.

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OR PLAN OF OPERATION.

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition, results of operations and liquidity should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 and the related notes appearing elsewhere in this annual report. Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Our critical accounting policies, including the assumptions and judgments underlying those policies, are more fully described in the notes to our consolidated financial statements. We have consistently applied these policies in all material respects. Investors are cautioned, however, that these policies are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks and uncertainties, and that actual results may differ materially. Set forth below are the accounting policies that we believe most critical to an understanding of our financial condition, results of operations and liquidity.

Principles of Consolidation
The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, Spectral Holdings, Inc, its 60% owned subsidiary, Noot Holdings, Inc, from its date of incorporation of February 28, 2013, and its 60% owned subsidiary, Monitr Holdings, Inc. from its date of incorporation of December 1, 2013.  All material intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments
Spectral Capital's financial instruments consist of cash and cash equivalents, prepaid expenses, accounts payable, and accrued expenses, and due to related parties. The carrying amount of these financial instruments approximates fair value due to either length of maturity or interest rates that approximate prevailing market rates unless otherwise disclosed in these financial statements.

Stock-Based Compensation
The Company accounts for employee stock-based compensation in accordance with the guidance of the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation which requires all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, to be recognized in the financial statements based on their fair values. 

The Company has adopted a stock option and award plan to attract, retain and motivate its directors, officers, employees, consultants and advisors. Options provide the opportunity to acquire a proprietary interest in the Company and to benefit from its growth. Vesting terms and conditions are determined by the Board of Directors at the time of the grant. The Plan provides for the issuance of up to 15,000,000 common shares for employees, consultants, directors, and advisors.

The Company follows ASC Topic 505-50, formerly EITF 96-18, Equity: Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees for stock options and warrants issued to consultants and other non-employees.  In accordance with ASC Topic 505-50, these stock options and warrants issued as compensation for services provided to the Company are accounted for based upon the fair value of the services provided or the estimated fair market value of the option or warrant, whichever can be more clearly determined.  The fair value of the equity instrument is charged directly to compensation expense or prepaid expense and additional paid-in capital over the period during which services are rendered.
11


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

Revenue Recognition
The Company is in the development stage and has yet to realize revenues from operations.  Once the Company has commenced operations, it will recognize revenues when delivery of goods or completion of services has occurred provided there is persuasive evidence of an agreement, acceptance has been approved by its customers, the fee is fixed or determinable based on the completion of stated terms and conditions, and collection of any related receivable is probable.

OVERVIEW

Spectral Capital Corporation ("Spectral" or the Company, also "We or Us") is a technology company focused on the identification, acquisition, development, financing of technology that has the potential to transform existing industries. We look for technology that can be protected through patents or laws regarding trade secrets.  Spectral has acquired significant stakes in two technology companies currently and actively works with management to drive these companies toward increasing market penetration in their particular verticals.  Spectral intends to own, in full or in part, technology companies whose founders and key management can take advantage of the deep networks and experience in technology development embodied in Spectral management.

PLAN OF OPERATIONS
 
Spectral Capital is a technology startup accelerator that invests in early stage companies. Spectral targets industry verticals and solutions where disruption and network effects allow for rapid adoption and displacement of incumbents.  We work with startups focusing them on rapid development, getting to market, and refining their products and services with innovative features that reflect direct customer and market feedback. In addition to meeting some of the financing needs of our portfolio companies, we provide our teams with executive support at the technology, marketing and operations level in effort to bring optimal results. 
 
Spectral has entered some of the fastest growing industries in technology: Big Data, Mobile Technology, Mobile Search, News Aggregation and Sentiment Analysis.  Below is a list of our current portfolio companies:
 
Noot is a mobile technology company that has created "Noot" which ulitilizes proprietary search engine technology for mobile devices. Noot helps people easily find news, social media, photos and video that match their interests. The technology actually learns what users like and improves its results over time, providing very personalized information for the user. A key benefit of Noot is that the search engine continues to work even when the user is not actively searching and will discover new and relevant items without prompting, providing more enhanced and personalized information the next time the user searches for that topic. While Noot is no longer a working mobile application, as we have determined that the revenue potential did not meet our expectations, we are seeking alternative business opportunities to utilize the technology.

Monitr, launched in late 2014, is a technology and financial data services company. In September 2015, Monitr launched a significant update to its technology that makes it easy for the new or non-professional investor to find the stocks that are trending up in price at the moment. 
 
Monitr leverages cloud computing, big data and software to analyze the financial markets to discover those stocks that are trending now. Thousands of companies, news stories, blogs and opinion pieces are analyzed daily to uncover the trends and displayed in an accessible and easy-to-use web based interface for investors and traders.
   
Many investors use only a few sources to become informed of market conditions, Monitr provides investors with access to thousands of sources.
   
Monitr is offered at an accessible price for all types of investors
   
Monitr is independent and not being paid to promote stocks
   
Monitr is simple to use and removes a lot of guess work for new investors

12

Monitr specializes in the analysis of news, opinion and social media to determine the aggregate sentiment and trends of equities, commodities and currencies across world markets.  In a change to its business model, Monitr no longer offers these services direct to individual customers for monthly or annual fees. Instead it has teamed with an outside vendor to provide this service and Monitr will receive a portion of the sales. In turn,Monitr believes that their expertise is best used to focus on selling its customized analysis and real time data to larger financial institutions and hedge funds for use in fundamental and algorithmic analysis of financial markets. Marketing to this sector will be the focus for Monitr going forward.

On September 30, 2015, one of Spectral´s portfolio companies, Kontexto, ceased operations and is no longer in business.

Spectral's twelve-month plan includes the following goals/targets:
 
Complete one or more private equity placements to provide funding for developing of our current technologies and the acquisition of additional portfolio companies;
   
Expand Monitr´s audience to international markets;
   
Continue to gather historical data on Monitr trend detection results,
   
Solicit sales from larger financial institutions for Monitr´s customized analysis, real time data services and other API features,
   
Determine business development opportunities for Noot´s search technology.
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2016 AND 2015

Revenues

We are currently engaged in a technology development business and have exited natural resources. To date we have not recognized any revenues.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses decreased $623,178, from $813,061 for the year ended December 31, 2015 to $189,883 for the year ended December 31, 2016. Stock based compensation, included with operating expense, was $0 during the year ended December 31, 2016 and $349,994 during the year ended December 31, 2015. The decrease was due to a decreased amount of expense as stock options are fully vested. In addition during the year ended December 31, 2015, the Company recorded an impairment of investments of $237,000 due to the lack of expected cash flows.

Selling, general and administrative expenses principally include professional fees, investor relations fees, rent and general corporate overhead. The decrease of selling, general and administrative expense of $36,369 to $39,909 during the year ended December 31, 2016 from $76,278 for the year ended December 31, 2015 was directly related to decreases in professional fees related to legal, accounting, public relations, etc.

At December 31, 2014, the Company determined based upon the future discounted cash flows from our cost investment in Kontexto, Inc that an impairment of $305,000 should be recorded. Reducing the current carrying value of the investment to $232,000.  The decline in expected cash flows was primarily due lower revenues than initially projected under Kontexto, Inc's technology products. In 2015, the remaining Kontexto, Inc. investment of $232,000 was impaired as they ceased operations.

13

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

As of the year ended December 31, 2016 we had $1,222 of cash on hand. We intend to fund operations through the use of cash on hand and through additional advances from our chief executive officer and through debt and equity financings until sufficient cash flows from operations can be achieved.

Net cash used in operating activities decreased $26,292, from $64,426 for the year ended December 31, 2015 to $38,134 for the year ended December 31, 2016. This decrease was primarily the result of a lower net loss due to a decrease professional fees related to legal, accounting, public relations, etc. due to the cash flow limitations.

Net cash provided by financing activities increased by $16,499 from $19,182 for the year ended December 31, 2015 to $35,681 cash provided for the year ended December 31, 2016. Net cash provided by financing activities during the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015 related to net payments on advances from a related party in connection with payment of Spectral's obligations.

We believe that our current financial resources are not sufficient to meet our working capital requirements over the next year. Additional funding will be necessary in order to expand portfolio operations and to reach our goals. Currently, the Company does not have any commitments or assurances for additional capital nor can the Company provide assurance that such financing will be available to it on favorable terms, or at all. If, after utilizing the existing sources of capital available to the Company, further capital needs are identified and the Company is not successful in obtaining the financing, it may be forced to curtail its existing or planned future operations. In addition, if necessary, we will decrease expenses and redirect our efforts towards a sale of one of more of our assets should funding become inadequate.

Our short-term prospects are promising given our success to date in securing the two portfolio companies, Noot and Monitr. We believe we will experience significant operational and financial growth from these and other portfolio companies during the next 12 months.  However, we need significant capital to implement our plan.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM


To the Board of Directors and
Stockholders of Spectral Capital Corporation

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Spectral Capital Corporation as of December 31, 2016 and 2015 and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders' equity (deficit), and cash flows for the years then ended. Spectral Capital Corporation's management is responsible for these consolidated financial statements. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. The company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit 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 also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated statements, 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 financial position of Spectral Capital Corporation as of December 31, 2016 and 2015, the results of their operations, and their cash flows, for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

As discussed in Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company has incurred losses from operations, has negative working capital and is in need of additional capital to grow its operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 2. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of asset carrying amounts or the amount and classification of liabilities that might result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

SPECTRAL CAPITAL CORPORATION
NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 1 – NATURE OF OPERATIONS

Spectral Capital Corporation (the "Company" or "Spectral") was incorporated on September 13, 2000 under the laws of the State of Nevada. The Company was formerly in the business of developing internet search engine technology. From August 2010 until December 2012, the Company evaluated and sought out opportunities in the natural resource sector.  Spectral acquired various interests in natural resource assets in Russia, Kazakhstan and Alberta, Canada.  In December 2012, Spectral changed its corporate focus from the natural resource sector and back to information technology.  Spectral has divested of its principal natural resource asset in Alberta, Canada and intends to divest any remaining natural resources in the near future and focus solely on acquiring and developing information technology. See below and Notes 3 and 4 for disclosures regarding the acquisition of certain technology and a cost investment.

Spectral is focused on the identification, acquisition, development, financing of technology that has the potential to transform existing industries. The Company looks for technology that can be protected through patents or laws regarding trade secrets.  Spectral has acquired significant stakes in three technology companies currently and actively works with management to drive these companies toward increasing market penetration in their particular verticals.  Spectral intends to own, in full or in part, technology companies whose founders and key management can take advantage of the deep networks and experience in technology development embodied in Spectral management.
On February 26, 2013, the Company formed Noot Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation, which the Company is currently a 60% owner, in order to acquire mobile search engine technology. Under the agreement to acquire technology, the Company issued 5,000,000 common shares of Spectral Capital Corporation.
On March 14, 2013, the Company purchased 8% of the issued and outstanding shares of Kontexto, Inc., a Canadian corporation.  Spectral purchased the shares from Sargas Capital, Ltd. , a minority shareholder, in exchange for 5,000,000 common shares of Spectral stock and warrants to purchase 5,000,000 common shares at $0.85 per share, which expired on March 13, 2015.  The Company's CEO was an officer of Sargas Capital, Ltd. at the time of the transaction but did not have any holdings in Sargas Capital, Ltd, see Note 4 for additional information.
On December 1, 2013, the Company formed Monitr Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation, which the Company is currently a 60% owner of, in order to acquire a technology application and service.  Under the agreement to acquire technology, the Company issued 5,000,000 common shares of Spectral Capital Corporation, see Note 3 for additional information.
NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Going Concern
The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  The Company is in the development stage and has sustained substantial losses since inception. As of December 31, 2016, the Company has cash on hand of $1,222 and negative working capital of $716,873. The Company expects current cash on hand will not be able to fund operations for a period 12 months or more.  These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

To date management has funded its operations through selling equity securities and advances from related parties. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company generating cash from the sale of its common stock and/or obtaining debt financing and attaining future profitable operations, however, there can be no assurance the Company will be successful in these efforts. As of the date of these consolidated financial statements the Company does not have any firm commitments for capital. Without the required capital, the Company will be required to reduce their development expenditures which will potentially delay the completion of products which are expected to generate future revenues.

F - 6

Risks and Uncertainties
The Company has a limited operating history and has not generated revenues from our planned principal operations.

The Company's business and operations are sensitive to general business and economic conditions in the U.S. and worldwide. These conditions include short-term and long-term interest rates, inflation, fluctuations in debt and equity capital markets and the general condition of the U.S. and world economy. A host of factors beyond the Company's control could cause fluctuations in these conditions, including the political environment and acts or threats of war or terrorism. Adverse developments in these general business and economic conditions, including through recession, downturn or otherwise, could have a material adverse effect on the Company's consolidated financial condition and the results of its operations.
 
The Company currently has no sales and limited marketing and/or distribution capabilities. The Company has limited experience in developing, training or managing a sales force and will incur substantial additional expenses if we decide to market any of our current and future products. Developing a marketing and sales force is also time consuming and could delay launch of our future products. In addition, the Company will compete with many companies that currently have extensive and well-funded marketing and sales operations. Our marketing and sales efforts may be unable to compete successfully against these companies. In addition, the Company has limited capital to devote sales and marketing.

The Company's industry is characterized by rapid changes in technology and customer demands. As a result, the Company's products may quickly become obsolete and unmarketable. The Company's future success will depend on its ability to adapt to technological advances, anticipate customer demands, develop new products and enhance our current products on a timely and cost-effective basis. Further, the Company's products must remain competitive with those of other companies with substantially greater resources. The Company may experience technical or other difficulties that could delay or prevent the development, introduction or marketing of new products or enhanced versions of existing products. Also, the Company may not be able to adapt new or enhanced products to emerging industry standards, and the Company's new products may not be favorably received. Nor may we have the capital resources to further the development of existing and/or new ones.

Principles of Consolidation
The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, Spectral Holdings, Inc, and its 60% owned subsidiaries, Noot Holdings, Inc. from its date of incorporation of February 28, 2013, and Monitr Holdings, Inc. from its date of incorporation of December 1, 2013.  All material intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Basis of Presentation
The consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America and are presented in US dollars.

Stock-Based Compensation
The Company accounts for employee stock-based compensation in accordance with the guidance of the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation which requires all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, to be recognized in the financial statements based on their fair values. 

The Company follows ASC Topic 505-50, Equity: Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees for stock options and warrants issued to consultants and other non-employees.  In accordance with ASC Topic 505-50, these stock options and warrants issued as compensation for services provided to the Company are accounted for based upon the fair value of the services provided or the estimated fair market value of the option or warrant, whichever can be more clearly determined.  The fair value of the equity instrument is charged directly to compensation expense and additional paid-in capital over the period during which services are rendered.

Because the Company's stock-based compensation options have characteristics significantly different from those of traded options, and because changes in the subjective input assumptions can materially affect the estimate, amounts estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model may differ materially from the actual fair value of the Company's stock-based compensation options.

F - 7

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

Revenue Recognition
The Company recognizes revenues when delivery of goods or completion of services has occurred provided there is persuasive evidence of an agreement, acceptance has been approved by its customers, the fee is fixed or determinable based on the completion of stated terms and conditions, and collection of any related receivable is probable.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments
Fair value is defined 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 as of the measurement date. Applicable accounting guidance provides an established hierarchy for inputs used in measuring fair value that maximizes the use of observable inputs and minimizes the use of unobservable inputs by requiring that the most observable inputs be used when available. Observable inputs are inputs that market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability and are developed based on market data obtained from sources independent of the Company. Unobservable inputs are inputs that reflect the Company's assumptions about the factors that market participants would use in valuing the asset or liability. There are three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:
 
Level 1 - Observable inputs that reflect quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.
Level 2 - Include other inputs that are directly or indirectly observable in the marketplace.
Level 3 - Unobservable inputs which are supported by little or no market activity.
  
The fair value hierarchy also requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. As of December 31, 2016 and 2015, the Company does not have any assets or liabilities which would be considered Level 2 or 3.

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

The Company measures certain assets at fair value on a nonrecurring basis. These assets include cost method investments when they are deemed to be other-than-temporarily impaired, assets acquired and liabilities assumed in an acquisition or in a nonmonetary exchange, and property and equipment and intangible assets that are written down to fair value when they are held for sale or determined to be impaired. In 2013, the Company acquired various technologies and an investment in a third party in which the investment is being treated under the cost basis of accounting. See Notes 3 and 4, for discussion regarding impairment charges related to these items. Excluding these items, the Company did not have any significant assets or liabilities that were measured at fair value on a nonrecurring basis in periods subsequent to initial recognition.

Income Taxes
The Company follows ASC 740, Income Taxes for recording the provision for income taxes. The asset and liability approach is used to recognize deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the carrying amounts and the tax bases of assets and liabilities. Tax law and rate changes are reflected in income in the period such changes are enacted. The Company records a valuation allowance to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount that is more likely than not to be realized. The Company includes interest and penalties related to income taxes, including unrecognized tax benefits, within the income tax provision.
 
The Company's income tax returns are based on calculations and assumptions that are subject to examination by the Internal Revenue Service and other tax authorities. In addition, the calculation of the Company's tax liabilities involves dealing with uncertainties in the application of complex tax regulations. The Company recognizes liabilities for uncertain tax positions based on a two-step process. The first step is to evaluate the tax position for recognition by determining if the weight of available evidence indicates that it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained on audit, including resolution of related appeals or litigation processes, if any. The second step is to measure the tax benefit as the largest amount that is more than 50% likely of being realized upon settlement. While the Company believes it has appropriate support for the positions taken on its tax returns, the Company regularly assesses the potential outcomes of examinations by tax authorities in determining the adequacy of its provision for income taxes. The Company continually assesses the likelihood and amount of potential adjustments and adjusts the income tax provision, income taxes payable and deferred taxes in the period in which the facts that give rise to a revision become known.
 
The Company recognizes windfall tax benefits associated with share-based awards directly to stockholders' equity only when realized. A windfall tax benefit occurs when the actual tax benefit realized by the Company upon an employee's disposition of a share-based award exceeds the deferred tax asset, if any, associated with the award that the Company had recorded. When assessing whether a tax benefit relating to share-based compensation has been realized, the Company follows the tax law ordering method, under which current year share-based compensation deductions are assumed to be utilized before net operating loss carryforwards and other tax attributes.
F - 8

Investment in Securities
The Company's investments consisting of common shares of non-controlled entities are accounted for on the cost basis.  Impairment losses will be recorded when indicators of impairment are present.  See Note 4 for additional information.

Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers all highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

Basic Loss Per Share
Basic loss per share is calculated by dividing the Company's net loss applicable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares during the period. Diluted earnings per share is calculated by dividing the Company's net income available to common shareholders by the diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding during the year. The diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding is the basic weighted number of shares adjusted for any potentially dilutive debt or equity. Common share equivalents totaling 13,000,000 and 13,750,000 were outstanding at December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively, representing outstanding warrants and options, and were not included in the computation of diluted earnings per share for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.

Non-Controlling Interests
Non-controlling interests disclosed within the consolidated statement of operations represent the minority ownership's 40% share of net losses of Noot Holdings, Inc. and Monitr Holdings, Inc incurred during the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015. The following table sets forth the changes in non-controlling interest for the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015:

Foreign Currency
The Company's functional currency is the United States Dollar. Transaction gains or losses related to balances denominated in a currency other than the functional currency are recognized in the consolidated statements of operations. As a result of these foreign currency transactions, the Company has recorded foreign currency income of $9,223 and $1,116, recorded on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations during the years ended December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") No. 2014-09 "Revenue from Contracts with Customers" (Topic 606). Under this guidance, revenue is recognized when promised goods or services are transferred to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration that is expected to be received for those goods or services. The updated standard will replace most existing revenue recognition guidance under U.S. GAAP when it becomes effective and permits the use of either the retrospective or cumulative effect transition method. Early adoption is not permitted. The updated standard will be effective for the Company beginning January 1, 2018. The Company is currently evaluating the effect that the updated standard will have on its financial statements and related disclosures.
F - 9

 
In August 2014, the FASB issued ASU No. 2014-15 "Presentation of Financial Statements—Going Concern: Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entity's Ability to Continue as a Going Concern"" (Subtopic 205-40), which requires management to evaluate, at each annual and interim reporting period, whether there are conditions or events that raise substantial doubt about the entity's ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date the financial statements are issued and provide related disclosures. ASU No. 2014-15 is effective for annual periods ending after December 15, 2016 and interim periods thereafter. Early application is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the effect that the updated standard will have on its financial statements and related disclosures.
 
In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-17 "Income Taxes: Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes" (Topic 740), which requires deferred tax liabilities and assets to be classified as noncurrent in a classified statement of financial position. ASU No. 2015-17 will align the presentation of deferred income tax assets and liabilities with International Financial Reporting Standards. The new standard will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those annual years, and early application is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the effect that the updated standard will have on its financial statements and related disclosures.
 
In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-02 "Leases" (Topic 842), that requires organizations that lease assets, referred to as "lessees", to recognize on the balance sheet the assets and liabilities for the rights and obligations created by those leases with lease terms of more than 12 months. ASU No. 2016-02 will also require disclosures to help investors and other financial statement users better understand the amount, timing, and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases and will include qualitative and quantitative requirements. The new standard will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018, including interim periods within those annual years, and early application is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the effect that the updated standard will have on its financial statements and related disclosures.
 
The FASB issues ASUs to amend the authoritative literature in the FASB Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC"). There have been a number of ASUs to date, including those above, that amend the original text of ASC. Management believes that those issued to date either (i) provide supplemental guidance, (ii) are technical corrections, (iii) are not applicable to the Company or (iv) are not expected to have a significant impact the Company's financial statements.

NOTE 3 – TECHNOLOGY ASSET
Monitr Holdings, Inc.
On December 1, 2013, the Company, through its subsidiary, Spectral Holdings, Inc. signed a definitive Technology Acquisition Agreement ("Agreement") to acquire technology which enhances the way people find, consume, analyze, share and discuss financial news and topics, equities, commodities and currencies on the web from TL Global, Inc. ("TL Global").  Under the Agreement, the Company issued TL Global 5,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock.  The Agreement calls for the technology to reside within a newly formed entity called Monitr Holdings, Inc.( "Monitr"), a Delaware corporation, which the Company is a 60% owner of and TL Global is a 40% owner of. TL Global was granted a right of first refusal for any subsequent sale of the technology.  The common shares were valued at $1,300,000 based on the closing market price of the Company's common stock as of the date of the agreement. In addition, the fair value assigned to the asset contributed by TL Global was $866,667, resulting in total assets of $2,166,667 being recorded. The Company recorded the transaction as an investment in technology as the in process development did not constitute a business. In addition, at the time of acquisition, the Company determined that the technology required extensive development in order to achieve technological feasibility, and expensed $2,161,667, the entire amount of except for $5,000 assigned to the website domain. The $5,000 was impaired during the year ended December 31, 2015 due to limited projected cash flows. The Company records losses from Monitr attributable to the percentage owned by TL Global as a non-controlling interest.

NOTE 4 – COST INVESTMENT

On March 14, 2013, the Company entered into an agreement to purchase 8% of the issued and outstanding common shares of Kontexto, Inc., ("Kontexto") a Canadian corporation.  The Company purchased the shares from Sargas Capital, Ltd., a minority shareholder, in exchange for 5,000,000 common shares of the Company's common stock and warrants to purchase 5,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock at $0.85 per share, which expired on March 13, 2015 (see Note 7).  The Company valued the common stock using the closing price of the Company's common stock on the date of the agreement and the warrants were valued using the Black-Scholes pricing model. The Company's investment in 8% of the common shares, initially valued at $6,398,500, was accounted for on the cost basis.  During 2013, a third party valuation specialist valued the investment in Kontexto using a hybrid between the market and income methods and determined that the fair value was $537,000.  Accordingly, an impairment loss of $5,861,500 was recognized in the statements of operations for the year ended December 31, 2013. The Company's CEO was an officer of Sargas Capital, Ltd. but does not have any holdings in Sargas Capital, Ltd.

At December 31, 2014, the Company reviewed whether or not there were any indicating factors that the carrying value of the cost investment was impaired. As part of this analysis, the Company obtained the current financial statements and future estimated discounted cash flow projections from Kontexto. Based upon the Company's review, it was determined that the carry value of the investment should be decreased to $232,000, resulting in an impairment of $305,000 during the year ended December 31, 2014.

In September 2015, the Company was notified by the management of Kontexto that the operations were being discontinued due to cash flow limitations. Thus, at September 30, 2015, the remaining investment of $232,000 was written off.

NOTE 5 – RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

Akoranga, AG

At December 31, 2016 and 2015, $342,281 and $351,502, respectively, was owed to Akoranga AG, a Swiss Company owned by the CEO of Spectral. Akoranga was formed to facilitate the Company's business in Europe. In connection with the facilitation of the Company's operations which includes making payments on the Company's obligations, Akoranga charges the Company a 10% fee on all transactions processed by Akoranga on behalf of the Company. The Company ceased using Akoranga services in August 2014. The advances do not incur interest and are payable upon demand. The decrease in amounts payable were due to changes in foreign currency exchange rates.

Jenifer Osterwalder, the Company's Chief Executive Officer

Amounts charged by Akoranga to the Company prior to August 2014 are included within the Akoranga liability disclosed above. As of December 31, 2016 and 2015, amounts due to the CEO related to accrued salaries were $316,717 and $166,742, respectively.

Commencing in September 2014, from time to time due to the limited cash flow available, the Company's CEO pays certain operating expenditures on behalf of the Company. These advances bear no interest and are due on demand. As of December 31, 2016 and 2015, the Company's CEO was due $65,603 and $20,701 in connection with these advances, respectively.

The Company has adopted a stock option and award plan to attract, retain and motivate its directors, officers, employees, consultants and advisors. Options provide the opportunity to acquire a proprietary interest in the Company and to benefit from its growth. Vesting terms and conditions are determined by the Board of Directors at the time of the grant. The Plan provides for the issuance of up to 15,000,000 common shares for employees, consultants, directors, and advisors.

On February 6, 2012, the Company granted 7,500,000 options to two employees. Stock-based compensation is being recognized over the two year vesting period.

Warrants

On March 7, 2013, Spectral sold 1,650,000 common shares at approximately $0.61 per share and received a total of $1,000,000 in financing proceeds.  Contemporaneously, Spectral issued warrants to purchase 1,650,000 common shares at an exercise price of $0.80 per share.  The warrants expired on March 7, 2015.  The warrants were valued using the Black-Scholes pricing model and $283,000 of the proceeds were allocated to the warrants.

As disclosed in Note 4, the Company previously had warrants outstanding to purchase 5,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock at $0.85 per share, which expired on March 13, 2015.

NOTE 7 – INCOME TAXES

As of December 31, 2016, the Company had net operating loss carry forwards of approximately $13,510,000 that may be available to reduce future years' taxable income through 2033. Future tax benefits which may arise as a result of these losses have not been recognized in these consolidated financial statements, as their realization is determined not likely to occur and accordingly, the Company has recorded a valuation allowance for the deferred tax asset relating to these tax loss carry-forwards. The difference between the Company's tax rate and the statutory rate is due to significant non-deductible expenses.

The provision for Federal income tax consists of the following:

Due to the change in ownership provisions of the Tax Reform Act of 1986, net operating loss carry forwards for federal income tax reporting purposes are subject to annual limitations. Should a change in ownership occur net operating loss carry forwards may be limited as to use in future years. The Company is subject to routine audits by taxing jurisdictions; however, there are currently no audits for any tax periods in progress.  The Company believes they are no longer subject to income tax examinations for years prior to 2012.

NOTE 8 – COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

The Company leases office space on a three month basis in Seattle, Washington.

NOTE 9– SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

In accordance with ASC 855-10, the Company has analyzed its operations subsequent to December 31, 2016 to the date these consolidated financial statements were issued, and has determined that it does not have any material subsequent events to disclose in these consolidated financial statements.

ITEM 9. CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS AN ACCOUNTING FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE.
 
Not applicable.

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

As required by Rule 13a-15 under the Exchange Act, we carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of December 31, 2016.  This evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial and Accounting Officer, as well as outside consultants.  In assessing the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting we utilized the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission as published in "Internal Control over Financial Reporting – Guidance for Smaller Public Companies."  Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial and Accounting Officer found material weaknesses in our disclosure controls and procedures and therefore concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report were ineffective.

The determination of ineffective internal control is based upon the lack of separation of duties, which was first identified during the year ended December 31, 2010. Our entire management is comprised of one individual. It is impossible to create a system of checks and balances with oversight in this circumstance. It is management's intention to bring additional people into the management team. Once there are more members of management, responsibilities can be divided and oversight roles created.  The Company estimates the annual costs of such remediation efforts in the form of additional management will be $150,000 per year. The Company intends to make such hires and create segregation of duties and proper oversight as soon as the capital is obtained.

We understand that remediation of disclosure controls is a continuing work in progress due to the issuance of new standards and promulgations.  However, remediation of the material weaknesses described above is among our highest priorities.  Our management will periodically assess the progress and sufficiency of our ongoing initiatives and make adjustments as and when necessary.  As of the date of this report, our management believes that our efforts will remediate the material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting as described above.

Notwithstanding these material weaknesses which are described below, our management performed additional analyses, reconciliations and other post-closing procedures and has concluded that the Company's consolidated financial statements for the periods covered by and included in this Annual Report on Form 10-K are fairly stated in all material respects in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the U.S. for each of the periods presented herein.

Inherent Limitations Over Internal Controls

The Company's internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. The Company's internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that:

(i)   pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the Company's assets;

(ii)   provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that the Company's receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of the Company's management and directors; and

(iii)   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.
15


Management does not expect that the Company's internal controls will prevent or detect all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of internal controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected. Also, any evaluation of the effectiveness of controls in future periods are subject to the risk that those internal controls may become inadequate because of changes in business conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Management's Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the company as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act. Our internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the (i) effectiveness and efficiency of operations, (ii) reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and (iii) compliance with applicable laws and regulations. Our internal controls framework is based on the criteria set forth in the Internal Control - Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO).

Management, consisting of our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting and Financial Officer, is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over the Company's financial reporting.

Management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2016, utilizing the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission as published in "Internal Control over Financial Reporting – Guidance for Smaller Public Companies."  Based on the assessment by management, we determined that our internal control over financial reporting was ineffective as of December 31, 2016.

Changes in Internal Control of Financial Reporting

During the year ended there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
