ITEM 1.                 BUSINESS

General Overview

Sparta Commercial Services, Inc. ("Sparta" "we," "us," or the "Company") is a Nevada corporation. Historically, we were an independent financial services provider, offering consumer retail installment sales contracts (“RISCs”) and both consumer and commercial lease financing to the powersports industry. During the fiscal year ended April 30, 2011, we formed Specialty Reports, Inc. to provide vehicle history reports to consumers, powersports, recreational vehicle, and automotive dealerships, and other entities such as credit unions, original equipment manufacturers, and auction houses; and to provide mobile applications (“mobile apps”) initially to powersports, automotive and marine dealerships. In August 2012, we sold all of our preforming RISCs and discontinued offering both RISCs and consumer leases and focused on developing and marketing our vehicle history reports and mobile app products. We continue to offer municipal lease financing.

Our offices are located at 370 Lexington Avenue, Suite 1901, New York, NY 10017, telephone number:  (212) 239-2666. We maintain a website at www.spartacommercial.com.

We identify our ongoing information technology business in two reporting groups: vehicle history reports and mobile applications.

The vehicle history report group is currently marketing: Cyclechex Motorcycle History Reports©, RVchex™ RV History Reports, and CarVinReport Car History Reports. These reports contain extremely valuable information for consumers, dealers, insurers, auction houses, and lenders, about a vehicle’s history, such as disclosed damage, salvaged or rebuilt title brands, the number of previous owners, the last recorded odometer reading, the manufacturer’s original equipment, OEM recall data, and more. We assemble the data for these reports from multiple sources, including, but not limited to, governmental agencies, in order to provide the most current information available for the benefit of all interested parties. We believe our products offer a compelling value as they are priced modestly and we provide a “no-hassle,” ninety-day, 100% money-back guarantee. We are confident that our Specialty Reports provide buyers and sellers a peace of mind that comes from being able to make an informed decision.
 
The mobile applications group is currently marketing two mobile app products: Specialty Mobile Apps (“SMA”) and iMobile Apps (“iMA”). SMA is a customizable modular mobile application engine developed for powersports and automobile, recreational vehicle and marine dealers that allows them to login to our website and utilize a fully-customized dealer mobile application “mobile app” on their own schedule. Dealers can upload images, change colors and icons, customize the items displayed, send push notifications to their customers (app users) and create a fully branded experience. The mobile application is generated, packaged, and made available on-line to the dealer's customers through the Apple App Store and the Android Market. Additionally, as we build new features, and support more devices, customers will also be able to take advantage of these new platforms and features as well. In May 2012, we launched imobileapp.com.  iMA which, while similar to the SMA platform, is designed for multi-industry use with both semi- and fully-customized applications available. Typical markets for the iMA platform are: restaurants, hotels, medical & dental practices, real estate agencies, and attorneys.

VEHICLE HISTORY REPORTS

In May 2010, our subsidiary, Specialty Reports, Inc. (“SRI”) purchased substantially all of the assets of Cyclechex LLC, a Florida limited liability company, in consideration of an adjusted 10% equity interest in Specialty Reports.

Cyclechex LLC, formed in 2007, was in the business of providing basic motorcycle information, obtained by inputting the vehicle’s vehicle identification number (“VIN”) on the Cyclechex web-site, and receiving information as to the vehicle’s year of manufacture, name of manufacturer and specific model. SRI has expanded on the Cyclechex product offering to include salvage, reported damage, and other title history information. All of this information is now offered on the Cyclechex web site, www.cyclechex.com, in the form of the copyrighted Cyclechex Motorcycle History Report©. Similar reports are offered on Recreational Vehicles on our web site, www.RVchex.com. Subsequent to April 30, 2011, we introduced CarVinReport on our website www.Carvinreport.com. We plan to introduce Truckchex during the 2014 fiscal year.

In June 2010, Specialty Reports entered into an exclusive five year agreement with a U.S. government authorized third-party distributor of on-line data from National Motor Vehicle Title System (NMVTS) for NMVTIS data on motorcycles, scooters, ATVs and recreational vehicles.
 

NMVTIS is an information system that federal law required the United States Department of Justice to establish and to provide an electronic means to verify vehicle title, brand, and theft data among motor vehicle administrators, law enforcement officials, prospective purchasers and insurance carriers.  NMVTIS was initially authorized in the Anti-Car Theft Act of 1992 and reauthorized by the Anti-Car Theft Improvements Act of 1996. After passage of the 1996 reauthorization, responsibility was transferred from the U.S. Department of Transportation to the U.S. Department of Justice. The NMVTIS system is a Department of Justice program currently operated by the American Association of Motor Vehicle Administrators (AAMVA). The system also provides a means for states to share title information in order to prevent fraud and other crime.

NMVTIS was created to:
 
·  
prevent the introduction or reintroduction of stolen motor vehicles into interstate commerce;
 
·  
protect states, consumers (both individual and commercial), and other entities from fraud;
 
·  
reduce the use of stolen vehicles for illicit purposes including funding of criminal enterprises; and
 
·  
provide consumer protection from unsafe vehicles.

NMVTIS information is supplied by state motor vehicle agency records and entire sectors (e.g., insurance, auto recyclers/junk/salvage, etc.) addressed by the Anti-Car Theft Act. As opposed to purchasing information from specific businesses or companies, entities are required to provide specific information to NMVTIS in a specific format. NMVTIS is intended to serve as a reliable source of title and brand history for automobiles, motorcycles and other vehicles. However, there are certain pieces of vehicle history data that NMVTIS’ database does not contain; for example, a vehicle's repair history. Currently the data provided to NMVTIS by states is provided in a variety of time frames; while some report and update NVMTIS data in “real-time” (as title transactions occur) others send updates less frequently, such as once every 24 hours or within a period of days.

This information is available to consumers and dealers on Specialty Reports’ website located at www.cyclechex.com.  Cyclechex is similar to CARFAX® in that it provides on-line vehicle history reports, for a fee, based on the vehicle’s VIN.  However, neither CARFAX® nor AutoChek® offers information on motorcycles, scooters, ATVs or recreational vehicles.

      Consumer Benefits:
 
Purchase a report directly from the Cyclechex, RVchex or CarVinReport website, and
Purchase a report via an Affiliate website.
 
     Dealer Benefits:
 
Dealers purchase a “block” of history reports from Cyclechex, RVchex or CarVinReport (with pricing incentives to purchase a larger quantity of reports),
This will facilitate the dealers' acceptance of trade-in vehicles and add value to the purchase of any pre-owned motorcycle, RV, automobile, or light truck, and
Dealers may absorb the cost of the report or re-sell the report to their customer.
 
     Affiliate Program
 
Dealers and other industry sources may incorporate the Cyclechex, RVchex, or CarVinReport website link in their sales and marketing strategies, and
Affiliates will earn commission on any Cyclechex, RVchex, or CarVinReport history reports that are generated from their sites.

MOBILE APPS

Specialty Mobile Apps (“SMA”) and iMobileapps (“iMA”).
 
SMA is a mobile application or computer software program (“app”) designed to help the user to perform singular or multiple related tasks on a handheld mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. The SMA software platform initially developed for motorcycle, RV, auto and marine dealers provides a mobile framework from which we can easily create interactive, customized mobile applications for our vertical markets. The product provides an online platform so that dealers may easily utilize their fully customized app and manage its content. Additionally, it allows SRI and our software development team to manage licenses and retrieve reporting information. In May 2012, we launched www.iMobileApp.com.  iMA which, while similar to the SMA platform, is designed for multi industry use with both semi- and fully-customized applications available. Typical markets for the iMA platform are: Restaurants, Hotels, Medical & Dental Practices, Real Estate Agencies, and Attorneys.
 
 
The basic features of the Specialty Mobile Apps and the iMobileapps are:
 
Content Management System (“CMS”) - CMS is provided as a website that allows Dealers to upload images to their mobile app, change text content, change colors, organize the order of tabs, and publish updates to their application.

Mobile client framework (“MCF”) - MCF is software that is installed on the individual mobile devices and deployed to the various mobile devices through the Apple App Store, Android Market Place, and other similar distribution channels.

Dealer (Customer) contact information - The Dealer can elect to present the user with a registration screen on startup to collect information such as first-name, last-name, email address, and telephone number to allow for tracking of marketing information and to be able to push Individual notification messages for future functionality.

Multiple Location Support - Dealers will pay subscription fees multiplied by the number of store locations that they wish to include in their app.  Using the client customization portal the Dealer will be able to add locations to their application that will appear as content within the mobile app.

Hours of Operation - Each location is capable of having different time groups for hours of operation. For example, the given store may have the parts department open during one time frame, and the sales department open during another time frame. This information is entered by the Dealer in the CMS and then displayed to the end user.

Vehicle History Reports - Dealer will be able to allow users to request and retrieve vehicle history reports. The user will be required to create an account on the device or use an existing account. The account information is sent to Specialty Reports, Inc. to create a user account in their system. The user can then add credits to their account by entering credit card information into the device. Reports are retrieved from the appropriate Specialty Reports system (Cyclechex.com, RVchex.com or CarVinReport.com) and displayed to the user on their Smartphone or other mobile device; User will also be able to use QR (Quick Response, a two-dimensional bar code) codes to scan in VIN numbers that have been provided to the CMS system.

Quick Dial - Quick Dial is a menu option the Dealer can choose to make available to its customers. By tapping the Quick Dial option the mobile device will display a list of phone numbers as a quick convenience to the user, The Dealer can add, remove, and edit phone numbers that appear in the Quick Dial screen from their CMS.

Messages - Messages can be specific to individuals (if the Dealer has enabled first-time user data collection), or broadcast to all users of the application. The messages appear in a style similar to email within the specific mobile device.

Push Notifications - The device itself governs the display of push notifications. For example, both iPhone and Android have their own ways of providing notification messages to the screen of the device. By sending a push notification from the CMS to user Company's framework, integrates with the device’s push notification system to alert the user.
 
QR Code Scanner - The QR (Quick Recall) code scanner is technology that allows a user to take a photographic scan of a QR symbol and then interpret the digital contents and make a decision on what to do with the data. The Dealer is able to create QR codes from the CMS system and then specify the action that should occur for the URL when it is scanned with their mobile application. That could be opening a URL, running a vehicle history report, or any other appropriate function.
 
Marketing Materials - The CMS will allow Dealers to download stock artwork that helps them promote their products and services to their customers. Examples of this would be banners for website display.
  
Embeds Product Developer and SRI Branding - The “about screen” of the application contains information useful to the support of the product. It also contains a powered by the product developer’s logo and text. SRI can choose to use a different logo, but the Powered by the product developer’s text remains on the about screen.

App store and Google Android Distribution - All native applications will be deployed through the product developer’s App store and Android Market Place online accounts.

Marketing information - If dealer has enabled first-time user data collection then that information will be available to the dealer on their portal.
 

Platforms for SMA and iMA Programs
 
The products have been designed (and maintained/updated by our product development team) to allow it to work as the CMS for various smart phone platforms (now existing and potentially emerging in the future) including, but not limited to, the following devices:
 
§ iPhone
§ iPad
§ Android devices
§ Kindle Fire
§ HTML5
 
Product Markets
 
Cyclechex
 
According to the Motorcycle Industry Council (“MIC”), there were 8. 2 million registered motorcycles in the United States in 2010 and MCI reported 2011 retail sales of new motorcycles of all classes of motorcycles totaled 555,000 units (compared to 560,000 in 2010). MIC estimates the ratio of used bike sales to new bike sales at 4.5-to-1. By extension, sales of used motorcycles in 2011 equated to approximately 2,497.500 units and averaged 2,277,600 units over the last four years. With minimal competition, management believes that the Cyclechex Motorcycle History Report® (“CMHR”) will become the “gold standard” for prospective purchasers of used motorcycles.
 
RVchex
 
SRI provides vehicle history reports to the RV Industry. According to the Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) RV Business Indicators report dated April 1, 2013, there are more than 9 million RVs (motor homes, travel trailers, sport utility RVs, truck campers and folding camping trailers) on the roads in the U.S.  According to a forecast by RV industry analyst and director of consumer surveys at the University of Michigan Dr. Richard Curtin, shipments of new RVs in 2013 are “expected to rise to 307,300 units, an increase of 7.5% from the 2012 total of 285,749. The most recent report on the used RV market was done by the University of Michigan in 2005 which concluded that approximately two used RVs were sold for each new one. This sentiment was echoed by Scott Stropaki of Statistical Surveys, Inc. Based on this information we can assume that approximately 572, 000 used RVs were sold in 2012.
 
CarVin Reports
 
According to the CARMAX, Inc., December 31, 2012 10K, there were over 17,800 franchised new car dealers selling new and used cars and over 37,900 independent used car dealers in the U.S. The CARMAX 10K also reported that sales of used cars in the U.S. in 2012 totaled 38 million units.
 
Presently, CarFax® and AutoCheck® dominate the automobile history report market. However, their individual retail reports sell for $34.99 and $29.99 respectively compared to our $24.95 price. We have no intention to compete directly with these well established companies. We do, however, plan to respond aggressively to those dealers who may not have sufficient demand for reports to take advantage of volume discount pricing offered by the two majors.

 Used Vehicle Market Summary:
 
In all three markets, it is possible that on any given vehicle there will be no reports purchased while it is also quite probable that there will be more than one report purchased on another vehicle as there may be more than one customer interested in that vehicle.
·  
 Annual sales of used motorcycles: ~ 2.5 million units 
·  
Annual sales of used Recreational Vehicles: ~ 570 thousand units 
·  
Annual sales of used cars: ~ 38 million units. 

Mobile Apps
 
According to comScore, Inc., “...a global leader in measuring the digital world and a preferred source of digital business analytics.” “For the three-month average period ending March (2012), 234 million Americans (75% of the U.S. population) age 13 and older used mobile devices.” “More than 106 million people in the U.S. (34% of the U.S. population) owned smart phones during the three months ending in March (2012), up 9% versus December (2011).” “82 percent of time spent with mobile media happens via apps.” And, according to comScore, Inc., by the end of Q1 2013, m-commerce (smartphone and tablet) had grown 31% year over year with “11% ($5.9 billion) of all retail digital commerce now coming from mobile platforms.” SRI’s mobile apps are offered not only in the U.S., but also in the U.K. and Germany.
 
 
SMA
 
According to the 2012 Motorcycle Industry Council Motorcycle Statistical Annual Report, in 2011 there were approximately 4,925 franchised new motorcycle dealer outlets and another 4,970 independent used motorcycle dealer outlets.  As stated above, there are over 17,800 franchised new car dealers selling new and used cars and over 37,900 independent used car dealers in the U.S.  Our initial thrust will be, not only to the 22,725 plus franchised vehicle dealers, but also, directly to select manufacturers such as, Harley-Davidson, which has over 1,300 worldwide dealers.
 
iMA
 
According to the National Restaurant Association,  2013 restaurant sales are projected to be $ 660.5 billion from  980,000 locations in the U.S. Additionally, they state the 38% of adults surveyed “...would be likely to utilize a smart phone app if it was offered by a quick service restaurant. ($174 billion of the projected $632 billion in sales)
 
A recent SK&A, a Cegedim Company market research study found 230,187 office-based physicians and group practices in the U.S. Of this number, 67,356, or 29%, were groups of 2 -5 physicians.
 
There are over 1.2 million members of the National Association of Realtors.
 
According to the American Hotel and Lodging Association, there are 51,015 hotels/motels in the U.S. with 15 or more rooms.

SALES AND MARKETING

Marketing
 
Our marketing starts with product development. We create compelling  products that; (i)  in the case of our line of vehicle history reports, provide consumers information which will assist in purchase decisioning and assist the dealer or auction house in making a sale, and (ii) in the case of SMA and iMA, provide dealers and other businesses with a state-of-the-art consumer communications and marketing program. 
 
For our three vehicle history report products, our primary marketing efforts are directed toward encouraging owners of web sites dealing with automobiles, motorcycles or recreational vehicles to become affiliates by linking their sites to ours. In doing this, they place a link, known as a banner, on their site which when “clicked” by a consumer automatically links the consumer to our appropriate web site. If that consumer then purchases a vehicle history report, the referring affiliate sight owner receives a pre-negotiated commission from us.  Three examples of our affiliates are NADA guides, DMV.org, and Kelley Blue Book.  Potential affiliates are contacted directly by our sales force or they are referred to us by word of mouth or targeted advertising in relevant trade publications. To date we have 60 signed affiliates. In December, 2010, Powersports Business chose Cyclechex as one of their “Nifty 50” winners, recognizing it as one of the top 50 new powersports products introduced during the year.

Our marketing strategy for our SMA is to target franchised dealers through the manufacturers. For instance, a major motorcycle manufacturer has over 1,000 world-wide authorized dealers. We are in discussions with this manufacturer to customize our app for his dealers. Additional marketing is done through targeted advertising as well as placement of favorable news stories in relevant trade publications. For the iMA product, we will target market to industry trade associations and major wholesalers to become an affiliate with us and joint market to their customers.  

SRI has considerable opportunity to increase brand awareness and grow traffic through product development, targeted marketing programs and strategic partnerships.
 
Sales and Customer Support
 
Our sales team is responsible for generating advertising to potential customers across our website and mobile applications.

We manage a field sales team from our New York office, with satellite locations in Denver, Houston and Tampa, to specifically target key manufacturers, dealers and auction houses.  Our field sales team develops direct relationships with these potential customers.
 
Customer service for all products is handled out of our New York office and supported by a representative in Tampa.
 

Competition

Presently, the two major providers of used automobile history reports, Carfax® and AutoCheck® do not provide motorcycle history reports. In fact, Carfax states on their website that their database contains records primarily of cars and light trucks and they “do not specialize in providing data for any other vehicle types at this time.” AutoCheck states on its web site “AutoCheck only reports on information for cars and light trucks.” Based on our existing roster of Cyclechex affiliates and current negotiations for additional affiliates, we do not see any company as a significant competitor at this time. We have not identified direct competition of the RV space and do not intend to compete directly with either Carfax® or AutoCheck®.

While there are numerous entities offering customized mobile apps, we believe that SRI is the only company marketing a pre-packaged customizable mobile app for vehicle dealers and our price point is significantly below other vendors of customized apps. Because our roots are in marketing we believe that while not specifically unique, our IMA product can be effectively and competitively marketed.

MUNICIPAL LEASING OF EQUIPMENT, INCLUDING POLICE MOTORCYCLES

Notwithstanding our discontinuance of consumer financing, we continue to offer, on a pass through basis, an equipment leasing product for local and/or state agencies throughout the country seeking a better and more economical way to finance their essential equipment needs, from police motorcycles and cruisers, to EMS equipment and busses, to virtually any type of equipment required.

Discontinued Operations

As discussed in NOTE C to the consolidated financial statements, in August 2012, the Company’s Board of Directors approved management’s recommendation to discontinue the Company’s consumer lease and loan business segments and the sale of all of the Company’s portfolio of RISCs, and a portion of its portfolio of leases. The sale was consummated in that quarter. The assets and liabilities have been accounted for as discontinued operations in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets for all periods presented.

The operating results related to these lines of business have been included in discontinued operations in the Company’s consolidated statements of loss for all periods presented. The following table presents summarized operating results for those discontinued operations.

   
Fiscal Year Ended

Revenues
  $ 203,997     $ 250,933  
Net loss
  $ (880,210 )   $ (1,034,112 )

As the Company sold all of its portfolio of RISCs, and a portion of its portfolio of leases with the remaining leases in final run-off mode (paying-off and terminating as agreed or by repossession), therefore there no portfolio performance measures were calculated for the year ending April 30, 2013 and the Company has discontinued segment reporting.

Regulation

Our prior financing operations were and are subject to regulation, supervision, and licensing under various federal, state, and local statutes and ordinances.  Additionally, the procedures that we must follow in connection with the repossession of vehicles securing contracts are regulated by each of the states in which we do business.  Accordingly, the laws of such states, as well as applicable federal law, govern our operations.  Compliance with existing laws and regulations has not had a material adverse effect on our operations to date.  Our management believes that we maintain all requisite licenses and permits and are in material compliance with all applicable local, state, and federal laws and regulations.  We periodically review our office practices in an effort to ensure such compliance.
 
The following constitute certain of the federal, state, and local statutes and ordinances with which we must comply:
 
·

Employees

As of April 30, 2013, we had 10 full-time employees.
 
ITEM 1A.              RISK FACTORS

We are subject to certain risks and uncertainties in our business operations which are described below. The risks and uncertainties described below are not the only risks we face. Additional risks and uncertainties not presently known or that are currently deemed immaterial may also impair our business operations.

We have an operating history of losses.

Through our fiscal year ended April 30, 2013, we have generated cumulative sales revenues of $5,743,833, have incurred significant expenses, and have sustained significant losses. Our net loss for the year ended April 30, 2013 was $3,726,523.  As of April 30, 2013, we had a deficit net worth of $3,874,694.
 
 
We had an agreement for a credit line with an institutional lender, who has acquired preferences and rights senior to those of our capital stock and placed restrictions on the payment of dividends.  This line had been terminated.
 
In July 2005, we entered into a secured senior credit facility with New World Lease Funding for a revolving line of credit.  New World received a security interest in substantially all of our assets with seniority over the rights of the holders of our preferred stock and our common stock.  In August 2012, this creditor was paid in full and all liens released.

Our business requires additional amounts of capital and we will need to obtain additional financing in the near future.

In order to expand our business, we need raise additional capital to support our operations until we become cash flow positive. We will have to raise approximately $1.5 million over the next twelve months to support our business.  As our business grows, we will need to seek additional financing to fund growth. There can be no assurance that we will have sufficient capital or be able to secure credit facilities when needed.  The failure to obtain additional funds, when required, on satisfactory terms and conditions, would have a material and adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition, and ultimately could result in the cessation of our business.
 
To the extent we raise additional capital by issuing equity securities; our stockholders may experience substantial dilution.  Also, any new equity securities may have greater rights, preferences or privileges than our existing common stock.  A material shortage of capital will require us to take drastic steps such as reducing our level of operations, disposing of selected assets or seeking an acquisition partner.  If cash is insufficient, we will not be able to continue operations.

We are new entrants into the information technology business.

We are new entrants into the businesses of providing vehicle history reports and building mobile apps. We indirectly compete with major, well capitalized, suppliers of automobile history reports. While these companies do not presently offer motorcycle or RV history reports, there is no guaranty they will not do so in the future.  The mobile app building business is characterized by many small “players”. While we believe we are better suited to market mobile apps than our competitors, there is no assurance that we can continue to do so.

We face security risks related to our electronic processing of sensitive and confidential customer and associate data.
 
Given the nature of our business, we and/or our service providers collect process and retain sensitive and confidential customer data, including credit card information. Despite our current security measures, our facilities and systems, and those of our third-party service providers, may be vulnerable to information security breaches, acts of vandalism, computer viruses or other similar attacks. An information security breach involving the disclosure of confidential data could damage our reputation and our customers' willingness to shop on our websites, and subject us to possible legal liability. In addition, we may incur material remediation costs as a result of an information security breach, including liability for stolen customer or associate data, repairing system damage or providing credit monitoring or other benefits to customers or associates affected by the breach. 

We could be harmed by data loss or other security breaches
 
As a result of our services being web-based and the fact that we process and/or our service providers, store and transmit large amounts of data, including personal information, for our customers, failure to prevent or mitigate data loss or other security breaches, including breaches of our vendors' technology and systems, could expose us or our customers to a risk of loss or misuse of such information, adversely affect our operating results, result in litigation or potential liability for us and otherwise harm our business. We use third party technology and systems for a variety of reasons, including, without limitation, encryption and authentication technology, employee email, content delivery to customers, back-office support and other functions. Although we and our service providers have developed systems and processes that are designed to protect customer information and prevent data loss and other security breaches, such measures cannot provide absolute security.
 
Our auditor’s opinion expresses doubt about our ability to continue as a “going concern”.

The independent auditor’s report on our April 30, 2013 consolidated financial statements state that our historical losses raise substantial doubts about our ability to continue as a going concern.  We cannot assure you that we will be able to generate revenues or maintain any line of business that might prove to be profitable.  Our ability to continue as a going concern is subject to our ability to generate a profit or obtain necessary funding from outside sources, including obtaining additional funding from the sale of our securities, increasing sales or obtaining credit lines or loans from various financial institutions where possible.  If we are unable to develop our business, we may have to discontinue operations or cease to exist, which would be detrimental to the value of our common stock.  We can make no assurances that our business operations will develop and provide us with significant cash to continue operations. 
 

A significant number of customers may fail to perform under their loans or leases.

Despite the sale of our RISC portfolio, we continue to own a “run-off” (paying-off and terminating as agreed or by repossession) portfolio of leases. As a lender or lessor, one of the largest risks we face is the possibility that a significant number of customers will fail to pay their payments when due.  If customers’ defaults cause losses in excess of our allowance for losses, it could have an adverse effect on our business, profitability and financial condition.  If a borrower enters into bankruptcy, we may have no means of recourse.  We have established an evaluation process designed to determine the adequacy of the allowance for losses.  While this evaluation process uses historical and other objective information, the establishment of losses is dependent to a great extent on management’s experience and judgment.  We cannot assure you that our loss reserves will be sufficient to absorb future losses or prevent a material adverse effect on our business, profitability or financial condition.

A variety of factors and economic forces may affect our operating results.

Our operating results may differ from current forecasts and projections significantly in the future as a result of a variety of factors, many of which are outside our control.  These factors include, without limitation, the receipt of revenues, which is difficult to forecast accurately, the amount and timing of capital expenditures and other costs relating to the expansion of our operations, the introduction of new products or services by us or our competitors, borrowing costs, pricing changes in the industry, technical difficulties, general economic conditions and economic conditions specific our market place.  The success of an investment in a vehicle history report and mobile app based venture is dependent, at least, in part, on extrinsic economic forces, including the supply of and demand for such services.  No assurance can be given that we will be able to generate sufficient revenue to cover our cost of doing business.  Furthermore, our revenues and results of operations will be subject to fluctuations based upon general economic conditions.  Economic factors like unemployment, interest rates, the availability of credit generally, municipal government and corporate budget constraints affecting equipment and technology purchases, the rate of inflation, and consumer perceptions of the economy may affect the volume of history report purchases.

Failure to perfect a security interest could harm our business.

Although our leasing portfolio is in a run-off mode (paying-off and terminating as agreed or by repossession), an ownership interest or security interest in a motor vehicle registered in most states may be perfected against creditors and subsequent purchasers without notice for valuable consideration only by complying with certain procedures specific to the particular state.  While we believe we have made all proper filings, we may not have a perfected lien or ownership interest in all of the vehicles we have financed.  We may not have a validly perfected ownership interest and security interest, respectively, in some vehicles during the period of the loan.  As a result, our ownership or security interest in these vehicles will not be perfected and our interest could be inferior to interests of other creditors or purchasers who have taken the steps described above.  If such creditors or purchasers successfully did so, the affected vehicles would not be available to generate their expected cash flow, which would have a material adverse effect on our business.

Risks associated with leasing.

Our business is subject to the risks generally associated with the ownership and leasing of vehicles.  A lessee may default in performance of its consumer lease obligations and we may be unable to enforce our remedies under a lease.  As a result, certain of these customers may pose credit risks to us.  Our inability to collect receivables due under a lease and our inability to profitably sell or re-lease off-lease vehicles could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations.

Adverse changes in used vehicle prices may harm our business.

Significant increases in the inventory of vehicles may depress the prices at which we can sell or lease our inventory of used vehicles composed of off-lease and repossessed vehicles or may delay sales or leases.  Factors that may affect the level of used vehicles inventory include consumer preferences, leasing programs offered by our competitors and seasonality.  In addition, average used powersports vehicle prices have fluctuated in the past, and any softening in the used powersports vehicle market could cause our recovery rates on repossessed vehicles to decline below current levels.  Lower recovery rates increase our credit losses and reduce the amount of cash flows we receive.
 
 
Our business is dependent on intellectual property rights and we may not be able to protect such rights successfully.

Our intellectual property, including our license agreements and other agreements, which establish our rights to proprietary intellectual property, our Cyclechex, RVchex and CarVin vehicle history reports and our SMA and iMA mobile apps are of great value to our business operations.  Infringement or misappropriation of our intellectual property could materially harm our business.  We rely on a combination of trade secret, copyright, trademark, and other proprietary rights laws to protect our rights to this valuable intellectual property.  Third parties may try to challenge our intellectual property rights.  In addition, our business is subject to the risk of third parties infringing or circumventing our intellectual property rights.  We may need to resort to litigation in the future to protect our intellectual property rights, which could result in substantial costs and diversion of resources.  Our failure to protect our intellectual property rights could have a material adverse effect on our business and competitive position.

Our business is subject to various government regulations.

While we have sold our consumer loan portfolio, we still retain a small and declining lease portfolio. Therefore, we are subject to numerous federal and state consumer protection laws and regulations and licensing requirements, which, among other things, may affect: (i) the interest rates, fees and other charges we impose; (ii) the terms and conditions of the contracts; (iii) the disclosures we must make to obligors; and (iv) the collection, repossession and foreclosure rights with respect to delinquent obligors.  The extent and nature of such laws and regulations vary from state to state.  Federal bankruptcy laws limit our ability to collect defaulted receivables from obligors who seek bankruptcy protection.  Prospective changes in any such laws or the enactment of new laws may have an adverse effect on our business or the results of operations.  Compliance with existing laws and regulations has not had a material adverse effect on our operations to date.  We will need to periodically review our office practices in an effort to ensure such compliance, the failure of which may have a material adverse effect on our operations and our ability to conduct business activities.

We do not intend to pay dividends on our common stock.

We have never declared or paid any cash dividend on our common stock. We currently intend to retain any future earnings and do not expect to pay any dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future. Future cash dividends on the common stock, if any, will be at the discretion of our board, and will depend on our future operations and earnings, capital requirements and surplus, general financial condition, contractual restrictions imposed by lending or other agreements, including agreements with holders of senior or preferential rights, and other factors that the board may consider important.

We have authorized a class of preferred stock which may alter the rights of common stock holders by giving preferred stock holders greater dividend rights, liquidation rights and voting rights than our common stockholders have.

Our board is empowered to issue, without stockholder approval, preferred stock, on one or more series, with dividend, liquidation, conversion, voting or other rights that could adversely affect the voting power or other rights of the holders of common stock.  From time to time, we have designated, and may in the future designate, series of preferred stock carrying various preferences and rights different from, and greater than, our common stock.  As of April 30, 2013, we have two series of preferred stock outstanding. Preferred stock could be utilized, under certain circumstances, as a method of discouraging, delaying or preventing a change in control of the company.
  
We are subject to various securities-related requirements as a reporting company.

We may need to improve our reporting and internal controls and procedures.  We have in the past submitted reports with the SEC after the original due date of such reports.  If we fail to remain current on our reporting requirements, our common stock could be removed from quotation from the OTC Bulletin Board, which would limit the ability to sell our common stock.

We are controlled by current officers, directors and principal stockholders.

Our directors and executive officers beneficially own approximately 8.9% of our common stock as of April 30, 2013.  Accordingly, these persons and their respective affiliates have the ability to exert substantial control over the election of our Board of Directors and the outcome of issues submitted to our stockholders, including approval of mergers, sales of assets or other corporate transactions.  In addition, such control could preclude any unsolicited acquisition of our company and could affect the price of our common stock.
 
 
We are dependent on our management and the loss of any officer could hinder our implementation of our business plan.

We are heavily dependent upon management, the loss of any one of whom could have a material adverse effect on our ability to implement our business plan.  While we have entered into employment agreement with our Chief Executive Officer, this employment agreement could be terminated for a variety of reasons.  We do not presently carry key man insurance on the life of any employee.  If, for some reason, the services of management, or of any member of management, were no longer available to us, our operations and proposed businesses and endeavors may be materially adversely affected.  Any failure of management to implement and manage our business strategy may have a material adverse effect on us.  There can be no assurance that our operating and financial control systems will be adequate to support our future operations.  Furthermore, the inability to continue to upgrade the operating and financial control systems, the inability to recruit and hire necessary personnel or the emergence of unexpected expansion difficulties could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations.

ITEM 2.                 PROPERTIES

Our executive offices are located at 370 Lexington Avenue, Suite 1901, New York, NY 10017. We have an agreement for use of office space at this location under a sub-lease expiring on November 29, 2014. The office space contains approximately 3,000 square feet.  The rent for the year ended April 30, 2012 was $283,867.  For the year ended April 30, 2013, the rent was $246,632.

Additionally, during the term of the lease the Company is required to pay $965 monthly for electricity.

ITEM 3.                 LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

As at April 30, 2013, we were not a party to any material pending legal proceeding.  From time to time, we may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings, which arise in the ordinary course of business.

On December 18, 2012, a suit was filed by the Company, as plaintiff, asserting claims against a former credit provider seeking substantial damages for the credit provider's alleged breaches of fiduciary duties it owed to the Company, among other causes of action the Company has alleged in a Complaint filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.  There can be no assurance that the Company will prevail on any of its claims in this action.

Holders

The approximate number of holders of record of our common stock as of April 30, 2013 was 3,044 excluding stockholders holding common stock under nominee security position listings.

Dividends

We have never declared any cash dividends on our common stock. Future cash dividends on the common stock, if any, will be at the discretion of our Board of Directors and will depend on our future operations and earnings, capital requirements and surplus, general financial condition, contractual restrictions, including any restrictions pursuant to the terms of senior securities outstanding, and other factors that the Board of Directors may consider important. The Board of Directors does not intend to declare or pay cash dividends in the foreseeable future. It is the current policy to retain all earnings, if any, to support future growth and expansion.

As of April 30, 2013, we had outstanding 125 shares of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, $.001 par value. The Series A shares pay a 6% annual dividend which may be paid in cash or shares of common stock at our option.  We have not, as of April 30, 2013, distributed any dividends on the Series A shares, in cash or in shares of common stock. Upon conversion of the Series A shares, all accrued and unpaid dividends are extinguished. As of April 30, 2013, there was $6,045 of accrued Series A dividends payable.

As of April 30, 2013, we had 157 shares of Series B preferred stock outstanding.  The Series B shares accrue dividends at an annual rate of 10%.  Accrued dividends are payable upon redemption of the Series B shares.  As of April 30, 2013, no dividends were payable on Series B shares.
 
Recent Sales of Unregistered Securities  
 
Each of the issuance and sale of securities described below was deemed to be exempt from registration under the Securities Act in reliance on Section 4(2) of the Securities Act as transactions by an issuer not involving a public offering. No advertising or general solicitation was employed in offering the securities. Each purchaser is a sophisticated investor (as described in Rule 506(b) (2) (ii) of Regulation D) or an accredited investor (as defined in Rule 501 of Regulation D), and each received adequate information about the Company or had access to such information, through employment or other relationships, to such information.
 

During the year ended April 30, 2013, the Company:

Sold to an accredited investor a convertible four notes in the aggregate amount of $168,000. The notes are nine month notes and bear 8% interest. The notes are convertible at the note holder’s option at the lower of (i) the price per share at which the Company sells or issues any shares of common, subject to certain exceptions, or (ii) 58% multiplied by the average of the lowest three lowest closing bid price for the common stock during the ten trading day period ending one trading day prior to the date of submission of the conversion notice. During the fiscal year, two of the notes totaling $85,500 plus accrued interest thereon were fully converted into a total of 355,912 shares of the Company’s common stock. Additionally, this investor converted $37,500 of notes issued during the prior fiscal year, plus accrued interest thereon, into 118,564 shares of the Company’s common stock.

Borrowed $55,000 under a 5% convertible note due August 15, 2013 and borrowed a second 55,000, 5% convertible note due February 13, 2014. This lender has committed to lend up to $165,000 (one hundred sixty five thousand) of which we have borrowed $110,000. The lender may lend additional consideration to the Company in such amounts and at such dates as Lender may choose in its sole discretion.  The principal sum due to lender shall be prorated based on the consideration actually paid by lender (plus an approximate 10% original issue discount that is prorated based on the consideration actually paid by the lender as well as any other interest or fees) such that the borrower is only required to repay the amount funded and the Company is not required to repay any unfunded portion of this note.  The maturity date is one year from the effective date of each payment and is the date upon which the Principal Sum of this Note, as well as any unpaid interest and other fees, shall be due and payable.  The Conversion Price is the lesser of $1.20 or 70% of the average of the three lowest closing prices during the 20 trading days immediately previous to the day the conversion notice is delivered to the Company (In the case that conversion shares are not deliverable by DWAC an additional 5% discount will apply; and if the shares are chilled for deposit into the DTC system and only eligible for Xclearing deposit an additional 7.5% discount shall apply).  Unless otherwise agreed in writing by both parties, at no time will the lender convert any amount of this note into common stock that would result in the lender owning more than 4.99% of the common stock outstanding.
 
During the fiscal year, this investor converted $55,000 of notes payable plus accrued interest thereon into 164,795 shares of the Company’s common stock. Additionally, the Company borrowed $59,000 under a 5% convertible note due April 24, 2014 from the same lender under a second $165,000 note which is identical to the initial $165,000 note.

Borrowed $23,000 under an 8%, six-month note, convertible at the holder’s option on a basis of the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the day the holder notifies the Company he is converting. The holder converted the note and accrued interest thereon into 41,947 shares of the Company’s common stock.

"FORWARD-LOOKING" INFORMATION

This report on Form 10-K contains certain "forward-looking statements" within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, which represent our expectations and beliefs, including, but not limited to, statements concerning the Company's business and financial plans and prospects. The words "believe," "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "project," and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date such statement was made. These statements by their nature involve substantial risks and uncertainties, certain of which are beyond our control, and actual results may differ materially depending on a variety of important factors.

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the information  set forth in the audited  financial statements for the years ended April 30, 2013 and April 30, 2012 and footnotes found in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K.

Discontinued Operations

As discussed in NOTE C to the consolidated financial statements, in August 2012, the Company’s Board of Directors approved management’s recommendation to discontinue the Company’s consumer lease and loan lines of business and the sale of all of the Company’s portfolio of RISCs, and a portion of its portfolio of leases. The sale was consummated in that quarter. The assets and liabilities have been accounted for as discontinued operations in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets for all periods presented.

The operating results related to these lines of business have been included in discontinued operations in the Company’s consolidated statements of loss for all periods presented. The following table presents summarized operating results for those discontinued operations.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

For the year ended April 30, 2013, our revenues from continuing operations increased approximately 43%. We have continued to incur significant expenses, and have sustained significant losses.

Revenues-Continuing Operations

Revenues totaled $413,602 in fiscal 2013 compared to revenues of $289,628 in fiscal 2012. Other income in fiscal 2013 was $72,978 compared with $61,954 in fiscal 2012. Revenues from continuing operations in both fiscal years were from the sale of vehicle history reports, mobile apps and monthly mobile app service fees. Other income in both fiscal years was comprised primarily of Municipal Lease Fee income and interest income from subscriptions receivable.

Costs and Expenses-Continuing Operations

We incurred employee compensation and benefit costs of $521,879 for the year ended April 30, 2013 compared with $302,360 in fiscal 2012. The increase is primarily related to reductions in allocation of executive salaries between continuing and discontinued operations.
 
 
In connection with placement transactions, we expensed non-cash costs in the form of shares of common stock or warrants of $240,521 and $116,147 for the years ended April 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. In connection with consulting services, we expensed non-cash costs in the form of shares of common stock or warrants of $195,719 and $62,206 for the years ended April 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.  These amounts were charged to financing costs. Additionally, during the fiscal year ended April 30, 2013, we expensed $88,339 as the value of employee stock and option based compensation as compared to $51,932 in the prior fiscal year. During the year ended April 30, 2013, we recorded a charge of $854,569 from the change of beneficial discount for convertible note conversion options and amortization of debt discounts to financing costs as compared to a charge of $126,303 in fiscal 2012. Additionally, we recognized a reduction of the derivative liability of warrants and share conversion rights in the amount of $66,041 in fiscal 2013 as compared to $389,574 in fiscal 2012. At April 30, 2013 and 2012, accrued preferred dividends of $157,758 and $158,190, respectively, were charged to retained earnings.
 
We incurred consulting costs of $275,240 for the year ended April 30, 2013, as compared to $133,638 for the year ended April 30, 2012. We incurred legal and accounting fees of $98,835 for the year ended April 30, 2013, as compared to $38,035 for the year ended April 30, 2012.
 
We incurred other operating expenses of $312,012 for the year ended April 30, 2013.  Notable expenses in this category are: general office expenses of $116,576; rent of $123,316; travel and entertainment of $13,920; utilities of $24,795; advertising, website and marketing of $23,852; and taxes of $9,553.  
 
We incurred other operating expenses of $164,750 for the year ended April 30, 2012.  Notable expenses in this category are: rent of $85,160; travel and entertainment of $16,017; utilities of $16,360; advertising, marketing and website expenses of $26,697; maintenance contracts of $7,165; and taxes of $9,470.   
 
Interest and financing costs for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2013 were $335,828 as compared to $463,999 for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2012. Depreciation and amortization for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2013 was $6,953 as compared to $11,166 for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2012.
 
Net Loss-Continuing Operations
 
Despite a $123,974 (42.8%) increase in revenues from $289,628 to $413,602, and a $128,171 (27.6%) decrease in interest expense and financing costs from  $463,999 to $335,828, our net loss from continuing operations for the year ended April 30, 2013 increased $1,727,396 (173.4%) to $2,723,518 from a loss of $996,121 for the year ended April 30, 2012. The increase in net loss from operations was primarily due to: a $49,551 (51.4%) increase in cost of goods sold from $96,312 to $145,863; a $769,053 (83.3%) increase in total general and administrative expenses from $923,349 to $1,692,403 which was partially a result of a reduction of allocation percentage of these expenses between continuing and discontinued operations as compared to the prior fiscal year ; a $124,374 (107.1%) increase in non-cash financing costs from  $116,147 to $240,521; a $728,266 (576.6%) increase in amortization of debt discount to $854,569 as compared to $126,303 last year; a $323,533 (83.0%) decrease in derivative liability from a credit of $389,574 last year to a credit of $66,041 this year; and a $4,212 (37.7%) decrease in depreciation and amortization to $6,935 from $11,116.
 
Our net loss attributable to common stockholders for the year ended April 30, 2013 increased $1,576,190 (73.3%) to $3,726,523 from a loss of $2,150,333 for the year ended April 30, 2012. This increase in net loss attributable to common stockholders for the year ended April 30, 2013 was primarily due to the $153,902 (14.9%) decrease in net loss from discontinued operations to $880,210 from $1,034,112; a $11,024 (17.8%) increase in other income from $61,954 to $72,978, and the net loss from continuing operations.
 
Our net loss per common share (basic and diluted) attributable to common stockholders was $0.33 for the year ended April 30, 2013 and $0.28 for the year ended April 30, 2012.
 
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
As of April 30, 2013, we had a deficit net worth of $3,874,694. We generated a deficit in cash flow from operations of $1,754,262 for the year ended April 30, 2013. This deficit is primarily attributable to net loss attributed to shareholders  $3,726,523 adjusted for, dividends of $157,758; non-controlling interest in the net loss of $34,962; equity based compensation of $568,116; stock based financing costs of $235,252; increases in derivative liabilities of $854,569; net decreases in debt discount of $66,041; and to changes in the balances of current assets, consisting primarily of an increase in pre-paid expenses of $31,376, and current liabilities, consisting primarily of an increase in accounts payable of $277,735.  We met our cash requirements during the period through net proceeds from the issuances of convertible notes of $698,910, and we sold common and preferred stock for net proceeds of $921,775, we repaid notes in the amount of $27,125 and borrowed $6,500 from a director. Cash flows from discontinued operations included: cash provided by operating activities of $86,528, primarily depreciation and loss reserves; cash provided by investing activities of $384,474(sale or liquidation of leases and RISCs); and cash used in financing activities of $297,725 (repayment of senior bank debt).
 
While we have raised capital to meet our working capital and financing needs in the past, additional financing is required in order to meet our current and projected cash flow deficits from operations and development.
 
 
We continue seeking additional financing which may be in the form of senior debt, subordinated debt or equity.  Other than described above, we currently have no commitments for financing. There is no guarantee that we will be successful in raising the funds required.
 
We estimate that we will need approximately $1,500,000 in addition to our normal operating cash flow to conduct operations during the next twelve months.  Based on the above, on capital received from equity financing to date, and certain indications of interest to purchase our equity, we believe that we have a reasonable chance to raise sufficient capital resources to meet projected cash flow deficits through the next twelve months.  There can be no assurance that additional private or public financing, including debt or equity financing, will be available as needed, or, if available, on terms favorable to us. Any additional equity financing may be dilutive to stockholders and such additional equity securities may have rights, preferences or privileges that are senior to those of our existing common or preferred stock. Furthermore, debt financing, if available, will require payment of interest and may involve restrictive covenants that could impose limitations on our operating flexibility. However, if we are not successful in generating sufficient liquidity from operations or in raising sufficient capital resources, on terms acceptable to us, this could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations, liquidity and financial condition, and we will have to adjust our planned operations and development on a more limited scale.

The effect of inflation on our revenue and operating results was not significant. Our operations are located in North America and there are no seasonal aspects that would have a material effect on our financial condition or results of operations.

AUDITOR'S OPINION EXPRESSES DOUBT ABOUT THE COMPANY'S ABILITY TO CONTINUE AS A "GOING CONCERN"

The independent auditors report on our April 30, 2013 and 2012 consolidated financial statements included in this Annual Report states that our historical losses and the lack of revenues raise substantial doubts about our ability to continue as a going concern, due to the losses incurred and lack of significant operations. If we are unable to develop our business, we may have to discontinue operations or cease to exist, which would be detrimental to the value of the Company's common stock. We can make no assurances that our business operations will develop and provide us with significant cash to continue operations.

PLAN OF OPERATIONS

Addressing the Going Concern Issues

In order to improve our liquidity, our management is actively pursuing additional equity financing through discussions with investment bankers and private investors.  There can be no assurance that we will be successful in our efforts to secure additional equity financing.

We continue to experience net operating losses. Our ability to continue as a going concern is subject to our ability to develop profitable operations. We are devoting substantially all of our efforts to developing our business and raising capital. Our net operating losses increase the difficulty in meeting such goals and there can be no assurances that such methods will prove successful.

The primary issues management will focus on in the immediate future to address this matter include:

·  
seeking institutional investors for equity investments in our company; and
·  
initiating negotiations to secure short term financing through promissory notes or other debt instruments on an as needed basis.

To address these issues, we are negotiating the potential sale of securities with investment banking companies to assist us in raising capital. 

Product Research and Development

We do not anticipate incurring significant research and development expenditures during the next twelve months.

Acquisition or Disposition of Plant and Equipment

We do not anticipate the acquisition or sale of any significant property, plant or equipment during the next twelve months.
 

Number of Employees

From our inception through the period ended April 30, 2013, we have relied on the services of outside consultants for services and currently have ten full-time employees.  In order for us to attract and retain quality personnel, we anticipate we will have to offer competitive salaries to future employees. If we fully implement our business plan, we anticipate our employment base may increase by at least 50% during the next twelve months. As we continue to expand, we will incur additional cost for personnel. This projected increase in personnel is dependent upon our generating revenues and obtaining sources of financing. There is no guarantee that we will be successful in raising the funds required or generating revenues sufficient to fund the projected increase in the number of employees. 
 
Inflation

The impact of inflation on our costs and the ability to pass on cost increases to our customers over time is dependent upon market conditions. We are not aware of any inflationary pressures that have had any significant impact on our operations over the past year, and we do not anticipate that inflationary factors will have a significant impact on future operations.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The preparation of our financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect our reported assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses, and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We base our estimates and judgments on historical experience and on various other assumptions we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Future events, however, may differ markedly from our current expectations and assumptions. While there are a number of significant accounting policies affecting our financial statements, we believe the following critical accounting policy involves the most complex, difficult and subjective estimates and judgments.

Revenue Recognition

Revenues from history report and mobile app products are recognized on a cash basis.

Revenues from RISCs and leases

The RISCs are secured by liens on the titles to the vehicles. The RISCs are accounted for as loans.  Upon purchase, the RISCs appear on our balance sheet as RISC loans receivable current and long term. When the RISC is entered into our accounting system, based on the customer's APR (interest rate), an amortization schedule for the loan on a simple interest basis is created. Interest is computed by taking the principal balance times the APR rate then divided by 365 days to get your daily interest amount. The daily interest amount is multiplied by the number of days from the last payment to get the interest income portion of the payment being applied. The balance of the payment goes to reducing the loan principal balance.
  
Our leases are accounted for as either operating leases or direct financing leases. At the inception of operating leases, no lease revenue is recognized and the leased motorcycles, together with the initial direct costs of originating the lease, which are capitalized, appear on the balance sheet as "motorcycles under operating leases-net". The capitalized cost of each motorcycle is depreciated over the lease term, on a straight-line basis, down to the original estimate of the projected value of the motorcycle at the end of the scheduled lease term (the "Residual"). Monthly lease payments are recognized as rental income. An acquisition fee classified as fee income on the financial statements is received and recognized in income at the inception of the lease. Direct financing leases are recorded at the gross amount of the lease receivable, and unearned income at lease inception is amortized over the lease term.
 
We realize gains and losses as the result of the termination of leases, both at and prior to their scheduled termination, and the disposition of the related motorcycle. The disposal of motorcycles, which reach scheduled termination of a lease, results in a gain or loss equal to the difference between proceeds received from the disposition of the motorcycle and its net book value. Net book value represents the residual value at scheduled lease termination. Lease terminations that occur prior to scheduled maturity as a result of the lessee's voluntary request to purchase the vehicle have resulted in net gains, equal to the excess of the price received over the motorcycle's net book value.

Early lease terminations also occur because of (i) a default by the lessee, (ii) the physical loss of the motorcycle, or (iii) the exercise of the lessee's early termination. In those instances, we receive the proceeds from either the resale or release of the repossessed motorcycle, or the payment by the lessee's insurer. We record a gain or loss for the difference between the proceeds received and the net book value of the motorcycle. We charge fees to manufacturers and other customers related to creating a private label version of our financing program including web access, processing credit applications, consumer contracts and other related documents and processes. Fees received are amortized and booked as income over the length of the contract.
 

Stock-Based Compensation

The Company adopted ASC 718-10, which records compensation expense on a straight-line basis, generally over the explicit service period of three to five years.
 
ASC 718-10 requires companies to estimate the fair value of share-based payment awards on the date of grant using an option-pricing model.  The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as expense over the requisite service periods in the Company’s Consolidated Statement of Operations.  The Company is using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model as its method of valuation for share-based awards.  The Company’s determination of fair value of share-based payment awards on the date of grant using an option-pricing model is affected by the Company’s stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of highly complex and subjective variables.  These variables include, but are not limited to the Company’s expected stock price volatility over the term of the awards, and certain other market variables such as the risk free interest rate.

ITEM 8.                FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTARY DATA

 
 
REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

Board of Directors
Sparta Commercial Services, Inc.
New York, New York
 
 
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Sparta Commercial Services, Inc., as of April 30, 2013 and 2012, and the related consolidated statements of losses, deficit and cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended April 30, 2013. These financial statements are the responsibility of the company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the financial statements based upon our audits.
 
We conducted our audits in accordance with standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States of America). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatements. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Sparta Commercial Services, Inc. at April 30, 2013 and 2012, and the consolidated results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended April 30, 2013, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in the Note O to the accompanying consolidated financial statements, the company has suffered recurring losses from operations that raises 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 O. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTE A - SUMMARY OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES

A summary of the significant accounting policies applied in the preparation of the accompanying consolidated financial statements follows.

Business and Basis of Presentation

Since May 2010, the Company has concentrated its efforts on developing and marketing vehicle history reports, over the internet, and mobile apps for vehicle dealers and other market segments. Historically, the Company had been in the business as an originator and indirect lender for consumer retail installment loans and consumer lease financing for the purchase or lease of new and used motorcycles (specifically 550cc and higher) and utility-oriented 4-stroke all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). These consumer financing products were discontinued during the fiscal year ending April 30, 2013 (see Discontinued Operations).  The Company continues to offer a leasing program for municipalities.  

Estimates

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain reported amounts and disclosures. Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.

Discontinued Operations

As discussed in NOTE C, in the second quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company’s Board of Directors approved management’s recommendation to discontinue the Company’s consumer lease and loan lines of business and the sale of all of the Company’s portfolio of RISCs, and a portion of its portfolio of leases. The sale was consummated in that quarter. The assets and liabilities have been accounted for as discontinued operations in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets for all periods presented. The operating results related to these lines of business have been included in discontinued operations in the Company’s consolidated statements of loss for all periods presented

Revenue Recognition

Revenues from history report and mobile app products are recognized on a cash basis.

Revenues from RISCs and leases:

The RISCs are secured by liens on the titles to the vehicles. The RISCs are accounted for as loans.  Upon purchase, the RISCs appear on our balance sheet as RISC loans receivable current and long term. When the RISC is entered into our accounting system, based on the customer's APR (interest rate), an amortization schedule for the loan on a simple interest basis is created. Interest is computed by taking the principal balance times the APR rate then divided by 365 days to get your daily interest amount. The daily interest amount is multiplied by the number of days from the last payment to get the interest income portion of the payment being applied. The balance of the payment goes to reducing the loan principal balance.
  
Our leases are accounted for as either operating leases or direct financing leases. At the inception of operating leases, no lease revenue is recognized and the leased motorcycles, together with the initial direct costs of originating the lease, which are capitalized, appear on the balance sheet as "motorcycles under operating leases-net". The capitalized cost of each motorcycle is depreciated over the lease term, on a straight-line basis, down to the original estimate of the projected value of the motorcycle at the end of the scheduled lease term (the "Residual"). Monthly lease payments are recognized as rental income. An acquisition fee classified as fee income on the financial statements is received and recognized in income at the inception of the lease. Direct financing leases are recorded at the gross amount of the lease receivable, and unearned income at lease inception is amortized over the lease term.
 
We realize gains and losses as the result of the termination of leases, both at and prior to their scheduled termination, and the disposition of the related motorcycle. The disposal of motorcycles, which reach scheduled termination of a lease, results in a gain or loss equal to the difference between proceeds received from the disposition of the motorcycle and its net book value. Net book value represents the residual value at scheduled lease termination. Lease terminations that occur prior to scheduled maturity as a result of the lessee's voluntary request to purchase the vehicle have resulted in net gains, equal to the excess of the price received over the motorcycle's net book value.
 
 
SPARTA COMMERCIAL SERVICES, INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
APRIL 30, 2013 AND 2012

Early lease terminations also occur because of (i) a default by the lessee, (ii) the physical loss of the motorcycle, or (iii) the exercise of the lessee's early termination. In those instances, we receive the proceeds from either the resale or release of the repossessed motorcycle, or the payment by the lessee's insurer. We record a gain or loss for the difference between the proceeds received and the net book value of the motorcycle. We charge fees to manufacturers and other customers related to creating a private label version of
our financing program including web access, processing credit applications, consumer contracts and other related documents and processes. Fees received are amortized and booked as income over the length of the contract.

Inventories

Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or market, with cost determined using the first-in, first-out method and with market defined as the lower of replacement cost or realizable value.

Website Development Costs

The Company recognizes website development costs in accordance with ASC 350-50, "Accounting for Website Development Costs." As such, the Company expenses all costs incurred that relate to the planning and post implementation phases of development of its website.  Direct costs incurred in the development phase are capitalized and recognized over the estimated useful life.  Costs associated with repair or maintenance for the website are included in cost of net revenues in the current period expenses.

Cash Equivalents

For the purpose of the accompanying financial statements, all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less are considered to be cash equivalents.

Income Taxes

Deferred income taxes are provided using the asset and liability method for financial reporting purposes in accordance with the provisions of ASC 740-10, "Accounting for Income Taxes".  Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for temporary differences between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying values for financial reporting purposes and for operating loss and tax credit carry forwards.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be removed or settled.  The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in the statements of operations in the period that includes the enactment date.

ASC 740-10, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return.  ASC 740also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, treatment of interest and penalties, and disclosure of such positions.  As a result of implementing ASC 740, there has been no adjustment to the Company’s consolidated financial statements and the adoption of ASC 740 did not have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the year ending April 30, 2013.
 
Fair Value Measurements
 
The Company adopted ASC 820,” Fair Value Measurements”.  ASC 820 establishes a three-level fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value.  The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets the lowest priority to unobservable inputs to fair value measurements of certain assets and Liabilities.  The three levels of the fair value hierarchy under ASC 820 are described below:

·  
Level 1 — Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.  Level 1 assets and liabilities include debt and equity securities and derivative contracts that are traded in an active exchange market, as well as certain securities that are highly liquid and are actively traded in over-the-counter markets.

·  
Level 2 — Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets; quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active; and model derived valuations in which all significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets.

·  
Level 3 — Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value measurements.  Level 3 assets and liabilities include financial instruments whose value is determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies, or similar techniques based on significant unobservable inputs, as well as management judgments or estimates that are significant to valuation.
 
 
SPARTA COMMERCIAL SERVICES, INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
APRIL 30, 2013 AND 2012
  
This hierarchy requires the Company to use observable market data, when available, and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs when determining fair value.  For some products or in certain market conditions, observable inputs may not always be available.
  
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

In accordance ASC 360-10, “Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets” long-lived assets, such as property, equipment, motorcycles and other vehicles and purchased intangible assets subject to amortization are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable.  Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by comparing the carrying amount of an asset to estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset.  If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated future cash flows or quoted market prices in active markets if available, an impairment charge is recognized by the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset.

Comprehensive Income

In accordance with ASC 220-10, “Reporting Comprehensive Income," establishes standards for reporting and displaying of comprehensive income, its components and accumulated balances.  Comprehensive income is defined to include all changes in equity except those resulting from investments by owners and distributions to owners.  Among other disclosures, ASC 220-10 requires that all items that are required to be recognized under current accounting standards as components of comprehensive income be reported in a financial statement that is displayed with the same prominence as other financial statements.  At April 30, 2013, the Company has no items of other comprehensive income.
 
Segment Information

The Company adopted ASC 280-10 “Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information”.  ASC 280-10 establishes standards for reporting information regarding operating segments in annual financial statements and requires selected information for those segments to be presented in consolidated financial reports issued to stockholders.  ASC 280-10 also establishes standards for related disclosures about products and services and geographic areas.  Operating segments are identified as components of an enterprise about which separate discrete financial information is available for evaluation by the chief operating decision maker, or decision making group, in making decisions how to allocate resources and assess performance.  The information disclosed herein, materially represents all of the financial information related to the Company's principal operating segments.

In the second quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company’s Board of Directors approved management’s recommendation to discontinue the Company’s consumer lease and loan lines of business and the sale of all of the Company’s portfolio of RISCs and a portion of its portfolio of leases. The sale was consummated in that quarter. The assets and liabilities have been accounted for as discontinued operations in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets for all periods presented. The operating results related to these lines of business have been included in discontinued operations in the Company’s consolidated statements of loss for all periods presented. As these lines of business were discontinued during the fiscal year ending April 30, 2013, the Company has discontinued segment reporting.

Stock Based Compensation

The Company adopted ASC 718-10, which records compensation expense on a straight-line basis, generally over the explicit service period of three to five years.

ASC 718-10 requires companies to estimate the fair value of share-based payment awards on the date of grant using an option-pricing model.  The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as expense over the requisite service periods in the Company’s Consolidated Statement of Operations.  The Company is using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model as its method of valuation for share-based awards.  The Company’s determination of fair value of share-based payment awards on the date of grant using an option-pricing model is affected by the Company’s stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of highly complex and subjective variables.  These variables include, but are not limited to the Company’s expected stock price volatility over the term of the awards, and certain other market variables such as the risk free interest rate.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
APRIL 30, 2013 AND 2012
 
Property and Equipment

Property and equipment are recorded at cost. Minor additions and renewals are expensed in the year incurred. Major additions and renewals are capitalized and depreciated over their estimated useful lives. Depreciation is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives. Estimated useful lives of major depreciable assets are as follows:

Leasehold improvements
3 years
Furniture and fixtures
7 years
Website costs
3 years
Computer Equipment
5 years

Advertising Costs

The Company follows a policy of charging the costs of advertising to expenses incurred. During the years ended April 30, 2013 and 2012, the Company’s continuing operations incurred advertising costs of $4,196 and $4,734, respectively.

Net Loss Per Share

The Company uses ASC 260-10, “Earnings Per Share” for calculating the basic and diluted loss per share.  The Company computes basic loss per share by dividing net loss and net loss attributable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding.  Common equivalent shares are excluded from the computation of net loss per share if their effect is anti-dilutive.

On May 18, 2012, the Company’s Board of Directors declared effective a 1 for 75 reverse common stock split. Per share basic and diluted net loss attributable to common stockholders amounted to $0.33 and $0.28 for the years ended April 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. At April 30, 2013 and 2012, 6,035,657 (including 625,340 shares to be issued included on the balance sheet) and 8,668,123 (including 1,125,099 shares to be issued included on the balance sheet)  potential shares, respectively, were excluded from the shares used to calculate diluted earnings per share as their inclusion would reduce net loss per share.
 
Reclassifications

Certain reclassifications have been made to conform to prior periods' data to the current presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on reported losses.
 
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
There are various updates recently issued, most of which represented technical corrections to the accounting literature or applications to specific industries and are not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
NOTE B - PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT

NOTE C - DISCONTINUED OPERATIONS

In the second quarter of fiscal 2013, the Company’s Board of Directors approved management’s recommendation to discontinue the Company’s consumer lease and loan lines of business and the sale of all of the Company’s portfolio of RISCs and a portion of its portfolio of leases. The sale was consummated in that quarter. The assets and liabilities have been accounted for as discontinued operations in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets for all periods presented.

In addition, under the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification subtopic 815-40, Derivatives and Hedging; Contracts in Entity's Own Equity ("ASC 815-40"), as a result of entering into the Convertible Notes Payable, the Company is required to classify all other non-employee stock options and warrants as derivative liabilities and mark them to market at each reporting date. Any change in fair value inclusive of modifications of terms will be recorded as non-operating, non-cash income or expense at each reporting date. If the fair value of the derivatives is higher at the subsequent balance sheet date, the Company will record a non-operating, non-cash charge. If the fair value of the derivatives is lower at the subsequent balance sheet date, the Company will record non-operating, non-cash income.

NOTE I – FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS

The Company follows the guidance established pursuant to ASC 820 which established a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosure about fair value measurements. ASC 820 defines fair value as the amount that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (i.e., an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. ASC 820 also establishes a fair value hierarchy that requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 820 describes the following three levels of inputs that may be used:

Level 1: Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets that are accessible at the measurement date for identical assets and liabilities. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to Level 1 inputs.

Level 2: Observable prices that are based on inputs not quoted on active markets but corroborated by market data.

Level 3: Unobservable inputs when there is little or no market data available, thereby requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions. The fair value hierarchy gives the lowest priority to Level 3 inputs.
