PART I
 
DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
 
General
 
4301, Inc. was incorporated on December 9, 2005 under the laws of the State of Delaware to engage in any lawful corporate undertaking, including, but not limited to, selected mergers and acquisitions. We have been in the developmental stage since inception and have no operations to date other than issuing shares to our original shareholder.
 
We will attempt to locate and negotiate with a business entity for the combination of that target company with us. The combination will normally take the form of a merger, stock- for-stock exchange or stock-for-assets exchange. In most instances the target company will wish to structure the business combination to be within the definition of a tax-free reorganization under Section 351 or Section 368 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. No assurances can be given that we will be successful in locating or negotiating with any target company.
 
We have been formed to provide a method for a foreign or domestic private company to become a reporting (“public”) company whose securities are qualified for trading in the United States secondary market.
 
Perceived Benefits
 
There are certain perceived benefits to being a reporting company with a class of publicly- traded securities. These are commonly thought to include the following:
 
-
the ability to use registered securities to make acquisitions of assets or businesses;
   
-
increased visibility in the financial community;
   
-
the facilitation of borrowing from financial institutions;
   
-
improved trading efficiency;
   
-
shareholder liquidity;
   
-
greater ease in subsequently raising capital;
   
-
compensation of key employees through stock options for which there may be a market valuation;
   
-
enhanced corporate image;
   
-
a presence in the United States capital market.
 
Potential Target Companies
 
A business entity, if any, which may be interested in a business combination with us may include the following:
 
-
a company for which a primary purpose of becoming public is the use of its securities for the acquisition of assets or businesses;
   
-
a company which is unable to find an underwriter of its securities or is unable to find an underwriter of securities on terms acceptable to it;
   
-
a company which wishes to become public with less dilution of its common stock than would occur upon an underwriting;
   
-
a company which believes that it will be able to obtain investment capital on more favorable terms after it has become public;
   
-
a foreign company which may wish an initial entry into the United States securities market;
 
 
1

 
 
   
-
a special situation company, such as a company seeking a public market to satisfy redemption requirements under a qualified Employee Stock Option Plan;
   
-
a company seeking one or more of the other perceived benefits of becoming a public company.
 
A business combination with a target company will normally involve the transfer to the target company of the majority of our issued and outstanding common stock, and the substitution by the target company of its own management and board of directors.
 
No assurances can be given that we will be able to enter into a business combination, as to the terms of a business combination, or as to the nature of the target company.
 
Employees
 
We have no full time employees. Our president has agreed to allocate a portion of his time to the activities of the Company, without compensation. The president anticipates that our business plan can be implemented by his devoting no more than 10 hours per month to the business affairs of the Company and, consequently, conflicts of interest may arise with respect to the limited time commitment by such officer.
 
DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY
 
We have no properties and at this time have no agreements to acquire any properties. We currently use the offices of management at no cost to us. Management has agreed to continue this arrangement until we complete an acquisition or merger.
 
LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
We are not presently parties to any litigation, nor to our knowledge and belief is any litigation threatened or contemplated.
 
SUBMISSION OF MATTERS TO A VOTE OF SECURITY HOLDERS
 
None.
 
PART II
 
MARKET FOR COMMON EQUITY AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS
 
No Public Market for Common Stock
 
There is no trading market for our Common Stock at present and there has been no trading market to date. There is no assurance that a trading market will ever develop or, if such a market does develop, that it will continue.
 
The Securities and Exchange Commission has adopted Rule 15g-9 which establishes the definition of a “penny stock,” for purposes relevant to us, as any equity security that has a market price of less than $5.00 per share or with an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. For any transaction involving a penny stock, unless exempt, the rules require: (i) that a broker or dealer approve a person’s account for transactions in penny stocks and (ii) the broker or dealer receive from the investor a written agreement to the transaction, setting forth the identity and quantity of the penny stock to be purchased. In order to approve a person’s account for transactions in penny stocks, the broker or dealer must (i) obtain financial information and investment experience  and objectives of the person; and (ii) make a reasonable determination that the transactions in penny stocks are suitable for that person and that person has sufficient knowledge and experience in financial matters to be capable of evaluating the risks of transactions in penny stocks. The broker or dealer must also deliver, prior to any transaction in a penny stock, a disclosure schedule prepared by the Commission relating to the penny stock market, which, in highlight form, (i) sets forth the basis on which the broker or dealer made the suitability determination and (ii) that the broker or dealer received a signed, written agreement from the investor prior to the transaction. Disclosure also has to be made about the risks of investing in penny stocks in both public offerings and in secondary trading, and about commissions payable to both the broker-dealer and the registered representative, current quotations for the securities and the rights and remedies available to an investor in cases of fraud in penny stock transactions. Finally, monthly statements have to be sent disclosing recent price information for the penny stock held in the account and information on the limited market in penny stocks.

Holders
 
There is one holder of our Common Stock. The issued and outstanding shares of our Common Stock were issued in accordance with the exemptions from registration afforded by Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933.
 
Dividends
 
Since inception we have not paid any dividends on our common stock. We currently do not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future on our common stock, when issued pursuant to this offering. Although we intend to retain our earnings, if any, to finance the exploration and growth of our business, our Board of Directors will have the discretion to declare and pay dividends in the future.
 
Payment of dividends in the future will depend upon our earnings, capital requirements, and other factors, which our Board of Directors may deem relevant.
 
Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities
 
None.
 
Equity Compensation Plan Information
 
The following table sets forth certain information as of December 31, 2009, with respect to compensation plans under which our equity securities are authorized for issuance:
 
 
(a)
(b)
(c)

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OR PLAN OF OPERATIONS
 
Plan of Operation
 
The Registrant is continuing its efforts to locate a merger Candidate for the purpose of a merger. It is possible that the registrant will be successful in locating such a merger candidate and closing such merger. However, if the registrant cannot effect a non-cash acquisition, the registrant may have to raise funds from a private offering of its securities under Rule 506 of Regulation D. There is no assurance the registrant would obtain any such equity funding.

Results of Operation
 
The Company did not have any operating income from inception (December 9, 2005) through December 31, 2009. For the year ended December 31, 2009, the registrant recognized a net loss of $3,350. Some general and administrative expenses from inception were accrued. Expenses from inception were comprised of costs mainly associated with legal, accounting and office.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
At December 31, 2009, the Company had no capital resources and will rely upon the issuance of common stock and additional capital contributions from shareholders to fund administrative expenses pending acquisition of an operating company.
 
Management anticipates seeking out a target company through solicitation. Such solicitation may include newspaper or magazine advertisements, mailings and other distributions to law firms, accounting firms, investment bankers, financial advisors and similar persons, the use of one or more World Wide Web sites and similar methods. No estimate can be made as to the number of persons who will be contacted or solicited. Management may engage in such solicitation directly or may employ one or more other entities to conduct or assist in such solicitation. Management and its affiliates will pay referral fees to consultants and others who refer target businesses for mergers into public companies in which management and its affiliates have an interest. Payments are made if a business combination occurs, and may consist of cash or a portion of the stock in the Company retained by management and its affiliates, or both.
 
Yusuke Matsuo will supervise the search for target companies as potential candidates for a business combination. Yusuke Matsuo will pay, as his own expenses, any costs he incurs in supervising the search for a target company.
 
Yusuke Matsuo may enter into agreements with other consultants to assist in locating a target company and may share stock received by it or cash resulting from the sale of its securities with such other consultants. Yusuke Matsuo controls us and therefore has the authority to enter into any agreement binding us. Yusuke Matsuo as our sole officer, director and only shareholder can authorize any such agreement binding us. See "ITEM 4:

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm 
 
To the Board of Director and shareholders 
 
We have audited the accompanying balance sheet of 4301, Inc. as of December 31, 2009 and 2008 and the related statement of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 and 2008 and from inception (September 19, 2003) through the year then ended December 31, 2009. These financial statements are the responsibility of company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.
 
We conducted our audit in accordance with 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 financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statements presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of 4301, Inc. at December 31, 2009 and 2008 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the twelve months ended December 31, 2009 and 2008 and from inception (September 19, 2003) through December 31, 2009 in conformity with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company has suffered losses from operations and has a net capital deficiency that raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

F-6


 
Income Taxes:

The Company utilizes the asset and liability method to measure and record deferred income tax assets and liabilities. Deferred tax assets and liabilities reflect the future income tax effects of temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases and are measured using enacted tax rates that apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. At this time, The Company has set up an allowance for deferred taxes as there is no company history to indicate the usage of deferred tax assets and liabilities.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments:

The Company's financial instruments may include cash and cash equivalents, short-term investments, accounts receivable, accounts payable and liabilities to banks and shareholders. The carrying amount of long-term debt to banks approximates fair value based on interest rates that are currently available to The Company for issuance of debt with similar terms and remaining maturities. The carrying amounts of other financial instruments approximate their fair value because of short-term maturities.

Concentrations of Credit Risk:

Financial instruments which potentially expose The Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of operating demand deposit accounts. The Company's policy is to place its operating demand deposit accounts with high credit quality financial institutions. At this time The Company has no deposits that are at risk.
 
2. Related Party Transactions and Going Concern:
 
The Company's financial statements have been presented on the basis that it is a going concern in the development stage, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. At this time The Company has not identified the business that it wishes to engage in.

The Company's shareholder funds The Company's activities while The Company takes steps to locate and negotiate with a business entity for combination; however, there can be no assurance these activities will be successful.
 
3. Accounts Receivable and Customer Deposits:

Accounts receivable and Customer deposits do not exist at this time and therefore have no allowances accounted for or disclosures made.

4. Use of Estimates:

Management uses estimates and assumptions in preparing these financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. Those estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities, and the reported revenue and expenses. Management has no reason to make estimates at this time.
 
5. Revenue and Cost Recognition:

The Company uses the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for financial statement reporting.
 
6. Accrued Expenses:

Accrued expenses consist of accrued legal, accounting and office costs during this stage of the business.
 
7. Operating Lease Agreements:

The Company has no agreements at this time.
 
8. Stockholder's Equity:
 
Preferred stock includes 10,000,000 shares authorized at a par value of $0.001, of which none are issued or outstanding.

Common Stock includes 100,000,000 shares authorized at a par value of $0.001, of which 100,000 have been issued for the amount of $100 on December 31, 2005 in
acceptance of the incorporation expenses for the Company.
 
9. Required Cash Flow Disclosure for Interest and Taxes Paid:

The company has paid no amounts for federal income taxes and interest. The Company issued 100,000 common shares of stock to its sole shareholder in acceptance of the incorporation expenses for the Company.
 
10. Earnings Per Share:

Basic earnings per share ("EPS") is computed by dividing earnings available to common shareholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period as required by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 128, "Earnings per Shares". Diluted EPS reflects the potential dilution of securities that could share in the earnings.

11.  Income Taxes:
 
The Company has available net operating loss carryforwards for financial statement and federal income tax purposes. These loss carry-forwards expire if not used within 20 years from the year generated. The Company's management has decided a valuation allowance is necessary to reduce any tax benefits because the available benefits are more likely than not to expire before they can be used. These net operating losses expire as the following, $400 at 2025, $1,450 at 2026, $2,500 at 2027, $3,250 at 2028 and $3,350 at 2029.

The Company has available net operating loss carry-forwards for financial statement and federal income tax purposes. These loss carry-forwards expire if not used within 20 years from the year generated. The Company's management has decided a valuation allowance is necessary to reduce any tax benefits because the available benefits are more likely than not to expire before they can be used.

The Company's management determines if a valuation allowance is necessary to reduce any tax benefits when the available benefits are more likely than not to expire before they can be used.  The tax based net operating losses create tax benefits in the amount of $2,190 from inception through December 31, 2009.

Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial statement purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes. Significant components of the Company's deferred tax liabilities and assets as of December 31, 2009 are as follows:
 
Deferred tax assets:      
Federal net operating loss   $ 1,643  
State net operating loss      547  
         
Total Deferred Tax Asset     2,190  
Less valuation allowance     (2,190 )
      0  
                                                    
The reconciliation of the effective income tax rate to the federal statutory rate is as follows:
 
Federal income tax rate     15.0 %
State tax, net of federal benefit     5.0 %
Increase in valuation allowance     (20.0 %)
         
Effective income tax rate     0.0 %

12. Controls and Procedures:

Pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”), the Company carried out an evaluation, with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Accounting Officer (“CAO”) (the Company’s principal financial and accounting officer), of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined under Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of December 31, 2009. Based upon that evaluation, the Company’s CEO and CAO concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Exchange Act, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including the Company’s CEO and CAO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE
 
Our accountant is Gately & Associates, LLC, CPAs, independent certified public accountants. We do not presently intend to change accountants. At no time have there been any disagreements with such accountants regarding any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure.
 
CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as such term is defined under Rule 13a-15(e) and Rule 15d-15(e) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (Exchange Act), as of December 31, 2009. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officers have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms and that our disclosure and controls are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
 
MANAGEMENT’S REPORT ON INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING
 
Management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining effective internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act.  The Company’s internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance to the Company’s management and Board of Directors regarding the preparation and fair presentation of published financial statements in accordance with United State’s generally accepted accounting principles (US GAAP), including 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 assets of the company, (ii) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with US GAAP and that receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company, 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.
 
Management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting based on the framework in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission.  Management’s assessment included an evaluation of the design of our internal control over financial reporting and testing of the operational effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting.  Based on this assessment, Management concluded the Company maintained effective internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2009.
 
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements.  Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation.
 
This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting.  Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit the Company to provide only management’s report in this Annual Report. 
 
Changes in internal controls
 
 We have not made any changes to our internal controls during our fourth quarter of 2008. We have not identified any deficiencies or material weaknesses or other factors that could significantly affect these controls, and therefore, no corrective action was taken.

Audit Committee
 
We do not have a standing audit committee of the Board of Directors. Management has determined not to establish an audit committee at present because of our limited resources and limited operating activities do not warrant the formation of an audit committee or the expense of doing so. We do not have a financial expert serving on the Board of Directors or employed as an officer based on management’s belief that the cost of obtaining the services of a person who meets the criteria for a financial expert under Item 401(e) of Regulation S-B is beyond its limited financial resources and the financial skills of such an expert are simply not required or necessary for us to maintain effective internal controls and procedures for financial reporting in light of the limited scope and simplicity of accounting issues raised in its financial statements at this stage of its development.

ITEM 14. PRINCIPAL ACCOUNT FEES AND SERVICES
 
Audit Fees
 
For the Company’s fiscal years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008, we were billed approximately $1,500.00 and $1,500.00, respectively, for professional services rendered for the audit and review of financial statements included in our periodic and other reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission for our year ended December 31, 2009 and 2008.
 
Tax Fees
 
For the Company’s fiscal years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008, we were not billed for professional services rendered for tax compliance, tax advice, and tax planning.
 
All Other Fees
 
The Company did not incur any other fees related to services rendered by our principal accountant for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008.
 
Pursuant to the requirements of Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned thereunto duly authorized.

Effective May 6, 2003, the Securities and Exchange Commission adopted rules that require that before our auditor is engaged by us to render any auditing or permitted non-audit related service, the engagement be:

-approved by our audit committee; or

-entered into pursuant to pre-approval policies and procedures established by the audit committee, provided the policies and procedures are detailed as to the particular  service,  the  audit committee is informed of each service, and such policies and procedures do not include delegation of the audit committee's responsibilities to management.

We do not have an audit committee.  Our entire board of directors pre-approves all services provided by our independent auditors.

The pre-approval process has just been implemented in response to the new rules. Therefore, our board of directors does  not have  records of  what percentage of the above fees were pre-approved.  However, all of the above services and fees were reviewed and approved by the entire board of directors either before or after the respective services were rendered.
