CAUTIONARY NOTE REGARDING EXPLORATION STAGE STATUS

 

We are considered an “exploration stage” company under the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Industry Guide 7, Description of Property by Issuers Engaged or to be Engaged in Significant Mining Operations (“Industry Guide 7”), because we do not have reserves as defined under Industry Guide 7. Reserves are defined in Guide 7 as that part of a mineral deposit which can be economically and legally extracted or produced at the time of the reserve determination. The establishment of reserves under Guide 7 requires, among other things, certain spacing of exploratory drill holes to establish the required continuity of mineralization and the completion of a detailed cost or feasibility study.

 

Because we have no reserves as defined in Industry Guide 7, we have not exited the exploration stage and continue to report our financial information as an exploration stage entity as required under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“GAAP”). Although for purposes of FASB Accounting Standards Codification Topic 915, Development Stage Entities, we have exited the development stage and no longer report inception to date results of operations, cash flows and other financial information, we will remain an exploration stage company under Industry Guide 7 until such time as we demonstrate reserves in accordance with the criteria in Industry Guide 7.

 

Because we have no reserves, we have and will continue to expense all mine construction costs, even though these expenditures are expected to have a future economic benefit in excess of one year. We also expense our reclamation and remediation costs at the time the obligation is incurred. Companies that have reserves and have exited the exploration stage typically capitalize these costs, and subsequently amortize them on a units-of-production basis as reserves are mined, with the resulting depletion charge allocated to inventory, and then to cost of sales as the inventory is sold. As a result of these and other differences, our financial statements will not be comparable to the financial statements of mining companies that have established reserves and have exited the exploration stage.

 

SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION COVID 19 ORDER 34-88465

 

The Company has relied on this order 34-88465 for this filing. We could not file this report by the prescribed date as a significant portion of the Company’s business operations arelocated in the Papua New Guinea (“PNG”) including certain of its key personnel responsible for assisting the Company in the preparation of its financial statements. As a result of the travel and work restrictions stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company was unable to obtain financial records that it needed from its PNG based operations to permit the Company to file a timely and accurate Annual Report on Form 10-K for its year ended September 30, 2020, by the prescribed date without undue hardship and expense to the Company.

 

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This Annual Report on Form 10-K contains forward-looking information. Forward-looking information includes statements relating to future actions, prospective products, future performance, or results of current or anticipated products, sales and marketing efforts, costs and expenses, interest rates, outcome of contingencies, financial condition, results of operations, liquidity, business strategies, cost savings, objectives of management of Kibush Capital Corporation (hereinafter referred to as the “Company,” “Kibush Capital,” or “we”) and other matters. Forward-looking information may be included in this Annual Report on Form 10-K or may be incorporated by reference from other documents filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) by the Company. One can find many of these statements by looking for words including, for example, “believes,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “estimates” or similar expressions in this Annual Report on Form 10-K or in documents incorporated by reference in this Annual Report on Form 10-K. The Company undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information or future events.

 

The Company has based the forward-looking statements relating to the Company’s operations on management’s current expectations, estimates and projections about the Company and the industry in which it operates. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions that we cannot predict. In particular, we have based many of these forward-looking statements on assumptions about future events that may prove to be inaccurate. Accordingly, the Company’s actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by these forward-looking statements. Any differences could result from a variety of factors, including, but not limited to general economic and business conditions, competition, and other factors.

 

PART I.

 

ITEM 1. BUSINESS.

 

Kibush Capital Corporation (“we”, “us”, “our”, the “Company” or the “Registrant”) is a mineral and natural resources exploration company. We are currently involved in mineral exploration and timber logging through our subsidiary Aqua Mining. Aqua Mining operates a timber logging and processing operation in Papua New Guinea and is also active in mineral exploration in Papua New Guinea where we are exploring for gold.

 

We are an exploration stage company as defined by the Security and Exchange Commission’s (“SEC”) Industry Guide 7 as the Company has no established reserves as required under the Industry Guide 7.

History

 

We were incorporated in the State of Nevada on January 5, 2005, under the name Premier Platform Holding Company, Inc. The Company changed its name to Paolo Nevada Enterprises, Inc. on February 4, 2005. On August 18, 2006, the Company completed a merger with Premier Platform Holding Company, Inc., a Colorado corporation, where Paolo Nevada Enterprises, Inc. was the surviving entity. On November 1, 2006, the Company changed its name to the David Loren Corporation. On July 5, 2013, More Superannuation Fund, an Australian entity (“More”), obtained control of the Company from Beachwood Capital, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company. On August 23, 2013, the Company changed its name to Kibush Capital Corporation.

 

On May 26, 2014, we became an initial subscriber to Aqua Mining Limited, a Papua New Guinea limited company (“Aqua Mining”) resulting in a 49% interest, subsequently increasing to 90%.

 

The Company is an “emerging growth company” as defined in the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (“JOBS Act”).

 

Our auditors have issued a going concern opinion. This means that our auditors believe there is substantial doubt that we can continue as an on-going business for the next twelve months unless we obtain additional capital to pay our bills. This is because we have not generated any significant revenues from our current business. In addition, we have sustained losses for the past two years and have a negative working capital at September 30, 2020. We must raise cash from sources other than operations. Our only other source for cash at this time is investments by others in our company. We must raise cash to continue our mining exploration activities and business development.

 

Our Business

 

Our business is comprised of timber logging and mining exploration through our subsidiary Aqua Mining. Our primary office is located at 7 Sarah Crescent, Templestowe, Victoria 3106, Australia. The Company is an exploration stage company and there is no assurance that a commercially viable mineral deposit exists on any of our properties. Further exploration will be required before a final evaluation as to the economic and legal feasibility is determined.

 

Aqua Mining

 

Logging:

 

The Company, through its subsidiary Aqua Mining, was successful in obtaining Government approval for the commercialization of timber resources at Gaire, Papua New Guinea. The area that we have agreements with the landowners cover at Gaire 50,000 hectares. We have commenced logging during the December quarter 2019, this site is excellent in resource covering many species of wood, mainly hardwoods kwila and rosewood, there are a number of exotic wood types. It has taken us some time to establish the infrastructure at Gaire, but we have now completed the access road works and established a base camp for 38 on-site workers.

 

Market

 

Mining:

 

The primary product is Gold and our market price based on the London Metals Exchange Daily Rate. This rate determines a market price for all material sold within the Refinery Market. Outside of that market competition dictates the price available, and that competition has effectively no difference in the quality of the material as it based on a gold percentage. A higher price can be obtained by selling to the spot traders who can distribute the material at lower volumes to industry consumers.

 

Timber:

 

Initially, we are focusing on the domestic market in Papua New Guinea, where there are a number of major suppliers to the retail marketplace. As our capacity increases, we will look to export timber to the nearby Australian and Asian markets where demand is greater than supply.

 

  - 4 -  
 

 

Marketing and Distribution:

 

As the principal material is gold, the options are to sell either to a refinery and be paid the daily spot rate, or to sell to the jewelry wholesale market. Both of these options exist internally within PNG however the wholesale market is quite small. There are several options when the material is exported from PNG, again it could be to any refinery within the region and that rate again would be the daily spot rate. The wholesale market outside the country would be significant and there are many opportunities within Australia to sell at a higher than spot rate to that market. There may also be parties that would take up the material on a contractual basis.

 

The timber products will be marketed and distributed from our Timber Yard at Laloki (30 minutes Northeast from Port Moresby PNG). This facility is within easy reach of trade customers and gives quick access to our wholesale customers. In addition, it provides an opportunity for retail sales to be made direct to end consumers. We have developed marketing and distribution strategies based upon our experience working with the Paradise Gardens customer base over the last 12 months.

 

Competition

 

The mining industry is acutely competitive in all of its phases. We face strong competition from other mining companies in connection with the acquisition of exploration stage properties or properties containing gold, jade and other mineral reserves. Many of these companies have greater financial resources, operational experience, and technical capabilities than us. It is our goal to find undervalued properties and team up with local joint venture partners to streamline our time to market and costs. In PNG we are finding a number of such properties, as the enforcement of the Mining Act has forced traditional landowners to comply with the relevant requirements of the act. Their ability to do so is limited as they do not have the financial, or management resources to comply.

 

The logging industry is very competitive in Papua New Guinea. We believe that our policy of working with the landowners and providing direct employment to the local villagers appears to provide us with a competitive advantage of greater acceptance of our activities by government officials, local businesses, and local Papua New Guineans.

 

Raw Materials, Principal Suppliers and Customers

 

We are not dependent on any principal suppliers and our raw materials are produced principally through our own mining activities. Our principal customers for our mining activities are refineries based in PNG.

 

We are not dependent on any principal suppliers and our timber materials are produced principally through our logging activities. There are number of principal customers that we are focused on with the domestic market in PNG. We have established that customer base over the last 12 months and the company is now concentrating on formalizing supply agreements to those customers.

 

Intellectual Property

 

Intellectual property is not a large part of our current business model as we are selling non-unique materials through primarily conventional channels. One or more brands may yet be developed if we determine branding will benefit the Company.

 

Government Regulations

 

Our products and services are subject to foreign, federal, state, provincial and local laws and regulations concerning business activities in general, including the laws of Papua New Guinea and Australia. Our operations will be affected from time to time in varying degrees by domestic and foreign political developments, foreign, federal, and state laws.

ITEM 5. SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA.

 

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act and are not required to provide the information under this item.

 

ITEM 6. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

 

The following discussion and analysis provide information that we believe is relevant to an assessment and understanding of our results of operations and financial condition. You should read this analysis in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements and related notes and our unaudited consolidated interim financial statements and their notes. This discussion and analysis contain statements of a forward-looking nature relating to future events or our future financial performance. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, performance, or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. The words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “intend” and “plan” and similar expressions identify forward-looking statements. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date the statement was made. Such statements are only predictions, and actual events or results may differ materially.

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

The following discussion of the financial condition and results of our operations should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and the related notes thereto included elsewhere in this Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2020 (this “Report”). This report contains certain forward-looking statements, and our future operating results could differ materially from those discussed herein. Certain statements including, without limitation, statements containing the words “believes”, “anticipates,” “expects” and the like, constitute “forward-looking statements”. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause our actual results, performance, or achievements to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Given these uncertainties, readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. We disclaim any obligation to update any such factors or to announce publicly the results of any revisions of the forward-looking statements contained or incorporated by reference herein to reflect future events or developments.

 

Plan of Operations

 

The Company’s current plan of operation is to continue and expand our logging operations and to refocus on mining activities after achieving sufficient cash flow from logging and timber sales.

 

The Company has spent considerable time and effort understanding and developing processes for our logging, processing, and sale of finished products. The Company is now ready to deliver to the marketplace approximately 2500 cubic meters of processed timber for sale to both the wholesale and retail markets. We anticipate that the average sales revenue for processed timber will be approximately $750.00 per cubic meter.

 

Within the next 4 months, the Company plans to (1) acquire and place additional processing equipment in our new Timber yard at Laloki, and (2) acquire additional logging equipment to be deployed as required in Gaire We have placed deposits on various processing equipment, but we may need to finance the balance of the processing equipment and the additional logging machinery. Once the additional logging and processing equipment is placed, we believe that our capacity will increase to approximately 750 cubic meters per month. Moreover, the new processing equipment will allow us to customize our products to specific customer requirements and offer additional value-added timber products, which should help the Company increase profit margins on its timber sales.

 

With current operations at Gaire, we are optimistic that we can sell an average quantity of 750 cubic meters of timber per month by September of 2021. To support this target, we plan to develop export markets for our finished timber products to avoid relying too heavily on sales to any one region, diversify our customer base and build a more stable sales market. In addition to Gaire, we are investigating additional areas in PNG for potential timber operations to support our projected volume for the next 3 years.

 

Once we have sustainable excess profits from our logging activities, we plan to renew our mining exploration efforts.

 

Results of Operations

 

For the year ended September 30, 2020, and September 30, 2019

 

Revenues

 

The Company had $150,842 in revenue for the year ended September 30, 2020, and $178,768 for the year ended September 30, 2019. The decrease in revenue of $27,926 is attributable to Covid impact

 

Operating expenses

 

The Company had operating expenses of $504,048 for the year ended September 30, 2020, consisting of general and administrative expenses, as compared with operating expenses of $499,818 for the year ended September 30, 2019, consisting of general and administrative expenses.

 

Net Profit/Loss

 

The Company had a net operating profit of $151,252 for the year ended September 30, 2020, compared with a net operating loss of $528,643 for the year ended September 30, 2019. The increase of $679,895 was primarily attributable to the decrease in derivative financing expense.

 

  - 9 -  
 

 

Operating Activities

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $198,474 for the year ended September 30, 2020, compared to net cash used in operating activities of $162,240 for the year ended September 30, 2019.

 

Investing Activities

 

Net cash used in investing activities was $0 for the year ended September 30, 2020, compared to $23,453 for the year ended September 30, 2019.

 

Financing Activities

 

Net cash provided by financing activities was $201,712 for the year ended September 30, 2020, compared to $217,749 for the year ended September 30, 2019.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of September 30, 2020, the Company had total current assets of $69,730 and total current liabilities of $3,245,916 resulting in a working capital deficit of $3,176,186. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had total current assets of $18,152 and total current liabilities of $3,738,873 resulting in a working capital deficit of $3,720,720. The decrease in working capital deficit arose mainly due to increase in loans owing to related parties, who provided advances to the Company for working capital purposes. The Company had cash as of September 30, 2020, of $1,448. The Company intends to fund its exploration through the revenues from the logging activities and the sale of its equity securities. However, there can be no assurance that the Company will be successful doing so. We currently have no agreements, arrangements, or understandings with any person to obtain funds through bank loans, lines of credit or any other sources. We currently believe that the Company will need approximately $750,000 over the next 12 months to implement our desired expansion of logging activities.

 

Going Concern

 

The Company is in the development stage and has insufficient revenues to cover its operating costs. As of September 30, 2020, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $13,577,116 and a working capital deficiency and insufficient cash resources to meet its planned business objectives. These and other factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plan for our continued existence includes selling additional stock through private placements and borrowing additional funds to pay overhead expenses while maintaining marketing efforts to raise our sales volume. Our future success is dependent upon our ability to achieve profitable operations, generate cash from operating activities and obtain additional financing. There is no assurance that we will be able to generate sufficient cash from operations, sell additional shares of common stock or borrow additional funds. Our inability to obtain additional cash could have a material adverse effect on our financial position, results of operations and our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

We have only had operating losses which raise substantial doubts about our viability to continue our business and our auditors have issued an opinion expressing the uncertainty of our Company to continue as a going concern. If we are not able to continue operations, investors could lose their entire investment in our Company.

 

Contractual Obligations

 

The Company is not party to any contractual obligations other than indicated in Notes 5 and 6.

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements other than as described above.

 

We have not entered into any other financial guarantees or other commitments to guarantee the payment obligations of any third parties. We have not entered into any derivative contracts that are indexed to our shares and classified as shareholder’s equity or that are not reflected in our consolidated financial statements. Furthermore, we do not have any retained or contingent interest in assets transferred to an unconsolidated entity that serves as credit, liquidity, or market risk support to such entity. We do not have any variable interest in any unconsolidated entity that provides financing, liquidity, market risk or credit support to us or engages in leasing, hedging or research and development services with us.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

TO THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS AND SHAREHOLDERS OF KIBUSH CAPTAL CORPORATION

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Kibush Capital Corporation and its subsidiary (collectively, the Company) as of 30 September 2020 and 2019, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows, for each of the two years in the period ended September 30, 2020, and the related notes and schedules (collectively referred to as the financial statements). In our opinion, the financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as at September 30, 2019 and 2020, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended September 30, 2020, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company reported an accumulated deficit of $13,577,116 and $13,728,369 as of September 30, 2020 and September 30, 2019, respectively, due to the Company having not earned sufficient revenues to cover operating costs since inception and has a working capital deficit from significant short-term debt maturing in less than one year. All these factors raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s financial statements based on our audits. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB) and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audits, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, 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.

 

Our audits included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. Our audits also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the financial statements. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

KIBUSH CAPITAL CORPORATION

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

NOTE 1 - CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Business

 

Kibush Capital Corporation (formerly David Loren Corporation) (the “Company”) includes its 90% owned subsidiary Aqua Mining (PNG). See Basis of Presentation below. The Company has two primary businesses: (i) mining exploration within Aqua Mining, and (ii) timber operations in Papua New Guinea by Aqua Mining.

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The Company maintains its accounting records on an accrual basis in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

 

The consolidated financial statements of the Company include the accounts of the Company, and all entities in which a direct or indirect controlling interest exists through voting rights or qualifying variable interests. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in the consolidated financial statements.

 

Change in Fiscal Year End

 

The Board of Directors of the Company approved on September 14, 2014, a change in the Company’s fiscal year end from December 31 to September 30 of each year.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. As of September 30, 2019, the Company has an accumulated deficit of $13,728,369 and $13,577,116 as of September 30, 2020, and has not earned sufficient revenues to cover operating costs since inception and has a working capital deficit of $3,176,185 at September 30, 2020. The Company intends to fund its logging operations through equity financing arrangements, which may be insufficient to fund its capital expenditures, working capital and other cash requirements for the year.

 

To assist with company financing, Mr Sheppard has provided a letter of comfort to the company stating that he will not request repayment of the loan, for a period of not less than 12 months, from the date of signing the accounts.

 

The ability of the Company to emerge from the development stage is dependent upon, among other things, obtaining additional financing to continue mining exploration and execution of its business plan. In response to these problems, management intends to raise additional funds through public or private placement offerings.

 

These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Functional and Reporting Currency

 

The consolidated financial statements are presented in U.S. Dollars. The Company’s functional currency is the U.S. Dollar. The functional currency of Aqua Mining is the Papua New Guinean kina. Assets and liabilities are translated using the exchange rate on the respective balance sheet dates. Items in the income statement and cash flow statement are translated into U.S. Dollars using the average rates of exchange for the periods involved. The resulting translation adjustments are recorded as a separate component of other comprehensive income/(loss) within stockholders’ equity.

 

The functional currency of foreign entities is generally the local currency unless the primary economic environment requires the use of another currency. Gains or losses arising from the translation or settlement of foreign-currency-denominated monetary assets and liabilities into the functional currency are recognized in the income in the period in which they arise. However, currency differences on intercompany loans that have the nature of a permanent investment are accounted for as translation differences as a separate component of other comprehensive income/(loss) within stockholders’ equity.

 

  - 17 -  
 

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

A summary of the principal accounting policies is set out below:

 

Cash

 

The Company maintains its cash balances in interest and noninterest bearing accounts which do not exceed Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation limits.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Kibush Capital and Aqua Mining. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

 

Other Comprehensive Income and Foreign Currency Translation

 

FASB ASC 220-10-05, Comprehensive Income, establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive income and its components in a full set of general-purpose financial statements. Comprehensive income is defined to include all changes in equity except those resulting from investments by owners and distribution to owners.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements are presented in United States dollars.

 

Reclassifications

 

Reclassifications have been made to prior year consolidated financial statements in order to conform the presentation to the statements as of and for the period ended September 30, 2014.

 

On June 10, 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-10, Development Stage Entities (Topic 915) – Elimination of Certain Financial Reporting Requirements, Including an Amendment to Variable Interest Entities Guidance in Topic 810, Consolidation, which eliminates the concept of a development stage entity (DSE) in its entirety from current accounting guidance. The Company has elected early adoption of this new standard.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles in the United States of America (“GAAP”) requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates made by management are, recoverability of long-lived assets, valuation and useful lives of intangible assets, valuation of derivative liabilities, and valuation of common stock, options, warrants and deferred tax assets. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Non-Controlling Interests

 

Investments in associated companies over which the Company has the ability to exercise significant influence are accounted for under the consolidation method, after appropriate adjustments for intercompany profits and dividends.

 

In December 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 141(R), “Business Combinations.” It requires an acquirer to recognize, at the acquisition date, the assets acquired, the liabilities assumed, and any non-controlling interest in the acquiree at their full fair values as of that date. In a business combination achieved in stages (step acquisitions), the acquirer will be required to re-measure its previously held equity interest in the acquiree at its acquisition-date fair value and recognize the resulting gain or loss in earnings. The acquisition-related transaction and restructuring costs will no longer be included as part of the capitalized cost of the acquired entity but will be required to be accounted for separately in accordance with applicable generally accepted accounting principles. U.S. SFAS No. 141(R) applies prospectively to business combinations for which the acquisition date is on or after the beginning of the first annual reporting period beginning on or after December 15, 2008.

 

A non-controlling interest in a subsidiary is an ownership interest in a consolidated entity that is reported as equity in the consolidated financial statements and separate from the Company’s equity. In addition, net income/(loss) attributable to non-controlling interests is reported separately from net income attributable to the Company in the consolidated financial statements. The Company’s consolidated statements present the full amount of assets, liabilities, income, and expenses of all of our consolidated subsidiaries, with a partially offsetting amount shown in non-controlling interests for the portion of these assets and liabilities that are not controlled by us.

 

  - 18 -  
 

 

For our investments in affiliated entities that are included in the consolidation, the excess cost over underlying fair value of net assets is referred to as goodwill and reported separately as “Goodwill” in our accompanying consolidated balance sheets. Goodwill may only arise where consideration has been paid.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment is stated at cost. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over estimated useful lives as follows:

 

Plant equipment   2 to 15 years
Motor Vehicle   4 to 15 years

 

Maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. Renewals and improvements of a major nature are capitalized. At the time of retirement or other disposition of property and equipment, the cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any resulting gains or losses are reflected in the consolidated statement of operations.

 

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

 

In accordance with FASB ASC 360-10-5, Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets, the Company evaluates the carrying value of its long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that such carrying values may not be recoverable. The Company uses its best judgment based on the current facts and circumstances relating to its business when determining whether any significant impairment factors exist. The Company considers the following factors or conditions, among others, that could indicate the need for an impairment review:

 

  Significant under performance relative to expected historical or projected future operating results;
  Significant changes in its strategic business objectives and utilization of the assets;
  Significant negative industry or economic trends, including legal factors;

 

If the Company determines that the carrying values of long-lived assets may not be recoverable based upon the existence of one or more of the above indicators of impairment, the Company’s management performs an undiscounted cash flow analysis to determine if impairment exists. If impairment exists, the Company measures the impairment based on the difference between the asset’s carrying amount and its fair value, and the impairment is charged to operations in the period in which the long-lived asset impairment is determined by management.

 

During the year ended September 30, 2020, the Aqua Mining business continued to generate material operating losses. Consequently, management has re-assessed the carrying value of the existing plant and equipment and its ability to generate positive cash flows over the remaining useful life of the group of assets used within the Timber milling business. Managements current assessment, which takes into consideration the ongoing uncertain impacts of COVID-19 on market supply chains and the access to equipment required for timber processing facility enhancements, indicates that the current group of assets are impaired and need to be written down to a carrying value indicative representative of fair value. Managements current assessment of the carrying value is nil as there is no reliable secondary market at present for these assets in the Port Moresby region combined with other market constraints relating to COVID-19 impacts on supply chains. Management will continue to explore opportunities to expand the supply and processing capacity of the timber milling process with a view to re-assessing the carrying value of the asset group should positive operating cash flows start to be generated in future periods.

 

The carrying value of the Company’s investment in Joint Venture contract with leaseholders of certain Mining Leases in Papua New Guinea represents its ownership, accounted for under the equity method. The ownership interest is not adjusted to fair value on a recurring basis. Each reporting period the Company assesses the fair value of the Company’s ownership interest in Joint Venture in accordance with FASB ASC 325-20-35. Each year the Company conducts an impairment analysis in accordance with the provisions within FASB ASC 320-10-35 paragraphs 25 through 32.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The carrying amounts of the Company’s cash, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate their estimated fair values due to the short-term maturities of those financial instruments. The Company believes the carrying amount of its notes payable approximates its fair value based on rates and other terms currently available to the Company for similar debt instruments

 

Beneficial Conversion Features of Debentures

 

In accordance with FASB ASC 470-20, Accounting for Convertible Securities with Beneficial Conversion Features or Contingently Adjustable Conversion Ratios, we recognize the advantageous value of conversion rights attached to convertible debt. Such rights give the debt holder the ability to convert debt into common stock at a price per share that is less than the trading price to the public on the day the loan is made to us. The beneficial value is calculated as the intrinsic value (the market price of the stock at the commitment date in excess of the conversion rate) of the beneficial conversion feature of debentures and related accruing interest is recorded as a discount to the related debt and an addition to additional paid in capital. The discount is amortized over the remaining outstanding period of related debt using the interest method.

 

  - 19 -  
 

 

Derivative Financial Instruments

 

We apply the provisions of FASB ASC 815-10, Derivatives and Hedging (“ASC 815-10”). Derivatives within the scope of ASC 815-10 must be recorded on the balance sheet at fair value. During the year ended September 30, 2014, the Company issued convertible debt and recorded derivative liabilities related to a reset provision associated with the embedded conversion feature of the convertible debt. The Company computed the fair value of these derivative liabilities on the grant date and various measurement dates using the Black-Scholes pricing model. Due to the reset provisions within the embedded conversion feature, the Company determined that the Black-Scholes pricing model was the most appropriate for valuing these instruments.

 

In applying the Black-Scholes valuation model, the Company used the following assumptions during the year ended September 30, 2020:

 

    For the year ended  
    September 30, 2020  
Annual dividend yield     -  
Expected life (years)     0.50 – 1.00  
Risk-free interest rate     2.050 %
Expected volatility     41 %

 

The inputs used to measure fair value fall in different levels of the fair value hierarchy, a financial security’s hierarchy level is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

 

The Company determines the fair value of its derivative instruments using a three-level hierarchy for fair value measurements which these assets and liabilities must be grouped, based on significant levels of observable or unobservable inputs. Observable inputs reflect market data obtained from independent sources, while unobservable inputs reflect the Company’s market assumptions. This hierarchy requires the use of observable market data when available. These two types of inputs have created the following fair-value hierarchy:

 

Level 1 — Valuation based on unadjusted quoted market prices in active markets for identical securities. Currently, the Company does not have any items as Level 1.

 

Level 2 — Valuations based on observable inputs (other than Level 1 prices), such as quoted prices for similar assets at the measurement date; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable, either directly or indirectly. Currently, the Company does not have any items classified as Level 2.

Debt Consolidation

 

On January 14, 2020, the Company entered into a Promissory Note Consolidation Agreement (the “Consolidation Agreement”) with one of its noteholders, Warren Sheppard., as lender (“Mr. Sheppard”). Pursuant to the terms of the Consolidation Agreement, the Company consolidated an aggregate of $1,358,692  of outstanding debt obligations (the “Outstanding Debt”), which included principal and interest, (as listed below ) owed to Mr. Sheppard by the Company.

 

As a consequence of the debt consolidation, the derivative Liabilities associated with option component has been extinguished, therefore, derivative liabilities amounted to $728,080 as of the debt consolidation date are subsequently reversed and charged into profit and losses in January 2020.

Total:     920,328       438,364  

 

Upon the assumption by the Company of the Outstanding Debt, the Company and Mr. Sheppard entered into an unsecured promissory note (the “Consolidated Note”), which such Consolidated Note restated the repayment terms and conditions of the Outstanding Debt in full. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Consolidated Note, the Outstanding Debt accrues simple interest at 12.5% per year, compounded annually, and the Consolidated Note has a maturity date of January 15, 2022. No regularly scheduled periodic payments of principal or interest are due under the Consolidated Note, and, unless there is an earlier event of default, all outstanding and unpaid principal and interest under the Consolidated Note is due and payable in a single lump sum payment at maturity. The Consolidated Note also removes any common stock conversion features from previous notes. The Company may prepay the Consolidated Note at any time prior to maturity without penalty.

 

On January 9th, 2020, the Company issued Mr Sheppard 14,999,899 Class B Preference Shares and 101 Class C Preference Shares in full satisfaction of his unpaid 2015 and 2016 Salary of $250,000.

 

Loss per Share

 

The Company applies FASB ASC 260, “Earnings per Share.” Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing earnings (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed similar to basic earnings (loss) per share except that the denominator is increased to include additional common shares available upon exercise of stock options and warrants using the treasury stock method, except for periods for which no common share equivalents are included because their effect would be anti-dilutive.

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are accounted for in accordance with ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes.” Under the asset and liability method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future consequences of differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases (temporary differences). Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are recovered or settled. Valuation allowances for deferred tax assets are established when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

Mineral Property, Mineral Rights (Claims) Payments and Exploration Costs

 

Pursuant to EITF 04-02, “Whether Mineral Rights are Tangible or Intangible Assets and Related Issues”, the Company has an accounting policy to capitalize the direct costs to acquire or lease mineral properties and mineral rights as tangible assets. The direct costs include the costs of signature (lease) bonuses, options to purchase or lease properties, and brokers’ and legal fees. If the acquired mineral rights relate to unproven properties, the Company does not amortize the capitalized mineral costs, but evaluates the capitalized mineral costs periodically for impairment. The Company expenses all costs related to the exploration of mineral claims in which it had secured exploration rights prior to establishment of proven and probable reserves.

Accounting Treatment of Mining Interests

 

At this time, the Company does not directly own or directly lease mining properties. However, the Company does have contractual rights and governmental permits which allow the Company to conduct mining exploration on the properties referenced in this report. These contractual relationships, coupled with the government permits issued to the Company (or a subsidiary), are substantially similar in nature to a mining lease. Therefore, we have treated these contracts as lease agreements from an accounting perspective .

 

Research and Development

 

Research and development costs are recognized as an expense in the period in which they are incurred. The Company incurred no research and development costs for the years ended September 30, 2020, and 2019, respectively.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements 

 

In November 2019, the ASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2019-08-Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718) and Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Codification Improvements-Share-Based Consideration Payable to a Customer. This ASU will affect companies that issue share-based payments (e.g., options or warrants) to their customers. Similar to issuing a cash rebate to a customer, issuing a share-based payment to a customer can incentivize additional purchases. The share-based payments can also serve a strategic purpose by aligning the interests of a supplier and its customer, because the customer’s additional purchases increase its investment in the supplier. For entities that have not yet adopted the amendments in Update 2018-07, the amendments in this update are effective in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019. We do not expect the adoption of this ASU to have a material effect on our consolidated financial statements.

For entities that have adopted the guidance in Update 2016-13, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, including interim periods within those fiscal years. For those entities, the amendments should be applied on a modified-retrospective basis by means of a cumulative-effect adjustment to opening retained earnings in the statement of financial position as of the date that an entity adopted the amendments in Update 2016-13.

Depreciation expense was approximately $21,823 for the year ended September 30, 2020 and $13,082 for the year ended September 30, 2019.

 

During the year ended September 30, 2020, the Aqua Mining business continued to generate material operating losses. Consequently, management has re-assessed the carrying value of the existing plant and equipment and its ability to generate positive cash flows over the remaining useful life of the group of assets used within the Timber milling business. Managements current assessment, which takes into consideration the ongoing uncertain impacts of COVID-19 on market supply chains and the access to equipment required for timber processing facility enhancements, indicates that the current group of assets are impaired and need to be written down to a carrying value indicative representative of fair value. Managements current assessment of the carrying value is nil as there is no reliable secondary market at present for these assets in the Port Moresby region combined with other market constraints relating to COVID-19 impacts on supply chains. Management will continue to explore opportunities to expand the supply and processing capacity of the timber milling process with a view to re-assessing the carrying value of the asset group should positive operating cash flows start to be generated in future periods.

COVID-19 pandemic

 

The COVID-19 pandemic announced by the World Health Organisation post 31 January 2020 is having negative impact on the world economy. We have witnessed unprecedented measures implemented by the government on strict border security requirements. It is likely to have a significant impact on the Company’s export sales and associated supply chains. However, at this point of time, the impact of COVID-19 is unknown and cannot be quantified. We expect our business to remain in operation but will manage the unavoidable disruptions to our best abilities.

NOTE 14 – INVENTORY

 

Inventories are valued at cost. Cost is determined using the first-in, first-out method. The cost of finished goods and work-in-progress comprises raw materials, direct labour, other direct costs, and related production overheads (based on normal operating capacity) but excludes borrowing costs. There are three types of inventories in three stages of completion. Raw materials comprise of logs that are on the ground and at the log pond; Work-in-progress comprise of rough sawn timber at the Rigo site whilst Finished goods are planed, straightened timber at Laloki for sale. Each would have a different wholesale value depending on the level of processing. The stock levels held as raw materials and finished goods are minimal, and the saleable condition of the finished timber is questionable and unable to be accurately valued therefore we have written stock down to nil net realizable value.

 

Increase in Authorized Shares.

 

The Corporation has filed with the Nevada Secretary of State a resolution that the Corporation be and hereby is authorized to increase its authorized shares to Two Billion (2,000,000,000) shares of common stock authorized and Fifty Million (50,000,000) shares of preferred authorized, the Board of Directors consented to this filing February 19, 2020, at the date of this Report the Corporation has not yet received confirmation from Nevada Secretary of State.

 

ITEM 8. CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE.

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

 

Limitations on the Effectiveness of Controls

 

Our management does not expect that our Disclosure Controls and internal controls will prevent all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected. These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of a simple error or mistake. Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management or board override of the control.

 

The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions; over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. Internal control over financial reporting is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) or 15d-15(f) promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the company’s principal executive and principal financial officers and effected by the company’s board of directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

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

 

As of September 30, 2020, management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on the criteria for effective internal control over financial reporting established in Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”) and SEC guidance on conducting such assessments. Based upon that evaluation, the Company’s management concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are not effective at the reasonable assurance level due to the material weaknesses described below:

 

1. We do not have written documentation of our internal control policies and procedures. Written documentation of key internal controls over financial reporting is a requirement of Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act which is applicable to us. Management evaluated the impact of our failure to have written documentation of our internal controls and procedures on our assessment of our disclosure controls and procedures and has concluded that the control deficiency that resulted represented a material weakness.
   
2. The Company’s board of directors has no audit committee, independent director or member with financial expertise which causes ineffective oversight of the Company’s external financial reporting and internal control over financial reporting.
   
3. We do not have sufficient segregation of duties within accounting functions, which is a basic internal control. Due to our size and nature, segregation of all conflicting duties may not always be possible and may not be economically feasible. However, to the extent possible, the initiation of transactions, the custody of assets and the recording of transactions should be performed by separate individuals. Management evaluated the impact of our failure to have segregation of duties on our assessment of our disclosure controls and procedures and has concluded that the control deficiency that resulted represented a material weakness.

 

Due to these factors, during the period covered by this report, our internal controls and procedures may not be effective to detect a material misstatement. The lack of a functioning audit committee, the lack of segregation of duties within accounting functions, and the lack of multiple directors on our board of directors may result in ineffective oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures, which could result in a material misstatement in our financial statements in future periods.

 

The Company plans to add additional directors, add accounting personnel, and establish an audit committee over time, once it has sufficient income and cash flow to make those changes.

 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm because we are a smaller reporting company.

 

CEO and CFO Certifications

 

Appearing immediately following the Signatures section of this report there is Certification of our CEO/CFO. The Certification is required in accordance with Section 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (the Section 302 Certifications). This Item of this report, which you are currently reading is the information concerning the Evaluation referred to in the Section 302 Certifications and this information should be read in conjunction with the Section 302 Certifications for a more complete understanding of the topics presented.

Significant Employees

 

Vincent Appo has been mining manager of the Company since October 2013. Prior thereto, from June 2012 to November 2013, Mr. Appo was the Mine Operations Manager/Acting General Manager for Tolukuma Gold Mines Limited in Papua, New Guinea. Mr. Appo served as Consulting Survey Project Manager for Dempsey Australia Ltd, Papua, New Guinea from May 2011 to December 2011, and Mine Technical Services Manager/Acting Mine General Manager for Tolukuma Gold Mines Limited from January 2011 to July 2011 and for other gold mines in Papua, New Guinea in various positions since 2002. From 1997 to 2002, Mr. Appo was Chief Surveyor for two companies in New Guinea.

 

Compliance With Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934

 

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires our executive officers and directors, and persons who beneficially own more than 10% of our equity securities, to file reports of ownership and changes in ownership with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Officers, directors and greater than 10% shareholders are required by SEC regulation to furnish the Company with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file. Based solely upon a review of Forms 3 and 4 and amendments thereto furnished to us during our most recent fiscal year, to the best of our knowledge, all executive officers, directors and persons holding greater than 10% of our issued and outstanding stock have filed the required reports in a timely manner during our 2016 fiscal year.

 

Conflicts of Interest

 

At this time, we are not subject to the listing requirements of any national securities exchange or national securities association and, as a result, we are not required to have our board comprised of a majority of “independent directors.” Furthermore, we do not believe that our director currently meets the definition of “independent” as promulgated by the rules and regulations of the NYSE Alternext US (formerly known as the American Stock Exchange).

 

We currently have one director who is also our chief executive. We do not have an audit or compensation committee comprised of independent directors, and the functions that would have been performed by such committees are performed by our Board of Directors. Thus, there is a potential conflict of interest in that our directors have the authority to determine issues concerning management compensation, in essence their own, and audit issues that may affect management decisions.

 

Audit Committee

 

We have no separately designated audit committee. Audit committee functions are performed by our board of directors. None of our directors are deemed independent. All directors also hold positions as our officers. Our board of directors is responsible for: (1) selection and oversight of our independent accountant; (2) establishing procedures for the receipt, retention and treatment of complaints regarding accounting, internal controls and auditing matters; (3) establishing procedures for the confidential, anonymous submission by our employees of concerns regarding accounting and auditing matters; and (4) engaging outside advisors. Moreover, our Board of Directors has not established compensation or disclosure committees.

 

Audit Committee Financial Expert

 

We do not have an audit committee financial expert. We do not have an audit committee financial expert because we believe the cost related to retaining a financial expert at this time is prohibitive. Further, because we are only beginning our commercial operations, at the present time, we believe the services of a financial expert are not warranted.

 

Code of Ethics

 

We have adopted a corporate code of ethics. We believe our code of ethics is reasonably designed to deter wrongdoing and promote honest and ethical conduct; provide full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in public reports; comply with applicable laws; ensure prompt internal reporting of code violations; and provide accountability for adherence to the code.

Indemnification

 

Our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation (“Articles”) provide that our directors and officers be indemnified by us to the fullest extent authorized by the Nevada Revised Statutes, against all expenses and liabilities reasonably incurred in connection with services for us or on our behalf except for (i) acts or omissions that involve intentional misconduct, fraud, or a knowing violation of law or (ii the payment of dividends in violation of Nevada law. Our Articles also permit us to secure insurance on behalf of any officer, director, employee, or other agent for any liability arising out of his or her actions in this capacity. Our Articles provide that we will advance all expenses incurred to any person who was or is a party or is threatened to be made a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding, whether civil or criminal, upon receipt of an undertaking by or on behalf of such person to repay said amounts should it be ultimately determined that the person was not entitled to be indemnified under our Articles or otherwise.

 

Our Bylaws provide that our directors and officers be indemnified by us to the fullest extent authorized by the Nevada Revised Statutes, against all expenses and liabilities reasonably incurred in connection with services for us or on our behalf except that there shall be no indemnification if a person is adjudged liable to the Company unless and to the extent that despite such adjudication, the court determines that such person is entitled to indemnity or determined by the majority of directors, independent legal counsel or the stockholders.

 

Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted by directors, executive officers or persons controlling us, we have been informed that in the opinion of the SEC, such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is therefore unenforceable.

Under the Securities and Exchange Commission rules, more than one person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of the same securities, and a person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of securities as to which he or she may not have any pecuniary beneficial interest. Except as noted below, each person has sole voting and investment power.
