Notes to Financial Statements

 

(Unaudited)

 

Note A - Organization and Description of Business

 

HPC Acquisitions, Inc. (the “Company”) was initially formed under the laws of the State of Minnesota as Herky Packing Co. on July 17, 1968. The Company initially produced and marketed meat snack foods, principally beef jerky, smoked dried beef and snack sausages, through food brokers, distributors and wagon jobbers. Despite a 1970 restructuring, including the relocation to an approximate 12,500 square foot production facility, the Company’s efforts were unsuccessful and all operations were terminated by the end of 1970. On April 10, 1972, the Company changed its corporate name to H. P. C. Incorporated. In connection with this name change, the Company acquired Ed Stein’s Tire Center, Inc, a Minneapolis, Minnesota-based distributor of Gates tires. This acquisition was unsuccessful and reversed in 1973.

 

Since December 31, 1973, the Company has had no operations, assets or significant liabilities.

 

On August 7, 2006, the Company changed its state of incorporation from Minnesota to Nevada by means of a merger with HPC Acquisitions, Inc., a Nevada corporation formed on June 12, 2006 solely for the purpose of effecting the reincorporation. The Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws of the Nevada corporation are the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws of the surviving corporation.

 

On December 2, 1968 the Company commenced the sale of common stock pursuant to an Offering Circular pursuant to Regulation A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, in a self-underwritten offering. This Circular offered up to 120,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at a price of $2.20 per share. The shares were offered through the Company’s officers and directors on a best-efforts basis. The Company sold an aggregate 120,000 shares for gross proceeds of $264,000 under this Offering.

 

The current business purpose of the Company is to seek out and consummate a merger, acquisition or outright sale transaction whereby the Company's stockholders will benefit.

 

Note B - Preparation of Financial Statements

 

The Company follows the accrual basis of accounting in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and has a year-end of December 31.

 

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

 

Management further acknowledges that it is solely responsible for adopting sound accounting practices, establishing and maintaining a system of internal accounting control and preventing and detecting fraud. The Company’s system of internal accounting control is designed to assure, among other items, that 1) recorded transactions are valid; 2) valid transactions are recorded; and 3) transactions are recorded in the proper period in a timely manner to produce financial statements which present fairly the financial condition, results of operations and cash flows of the Company for the respective periods being presented.

Note C - Going Concern Uncertainty

 

The Company has no operations, limited cash on hand, no operating assets and has a business plan with inherent risk. Because of these factors, the Company’s auditor has issued an audit opinion on the Company’s financial statements which includes a statement describing our going concern status. This means, in our auditor’s opinion, substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern exists at the date of their opinion.

 

The Company's continued existence is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flows from operations to support its daily operations as well as provide sufficient resources to retire existing liabilities and obligations on a timely basis. Further, the Company faces considerable risk in it’s business plan and a potential shortfall of funding due to our inability to raise capital in the equity securities market. If no additional operating capital is received during the next twelve months, the Company will be forced to rely on existing cash in the bank and additional funds loaned by management and/or significant stockholders.

 

The Company’s business plan is to seek an acquisition or merger with a private operating company which offers an opportunity for growth and possible appreciation of our stockholders’ investment in the then issued and outstanding common stock. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully consummate an acquisition or merger with a private operating company or, if successful, that any acquisition or merger will result in the appreciation of our stockholders’ investment in the then outstanding common stock.

 

The Company’s management and significant stockholders have provided the necessary working capital to maintain the corporate status of the Company. The Company remains dependent upon additional external sources of financing; including being dependent upon its management and/or significant stockholders to provide sufficient working capital in excess of the Company’s initial capitalization to preserve the integrity of the corporate entity. It is the intent of management and significant stockholders to provide sufficient working capital necessary to support and preserve the integrity of the corporate entity. However, no formal commitments or arrangements to advance or loan funds to the Company or repay any such advances or loans exist. There is no legal obligation for either management or significant stockholders to provide additional future funding.

 

The Company anticipates offering future sales of equity securities. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain additional funding through the sales of additional equity securities or, that such funding, if available, will be obtained on terms favorable to or affordable by the Company.

 

The Company’s certificate of incorporation authorizes the issuance of up to 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock and 50,000,000 shares of common stock. The Company’s ability to issue preferred stock may limit the Company’s ability to obtain debt or equity financing as well as impede potential takeover of the Company, which takeover may be in the best interest of stockholders. The Company’s ability to issue these authorized but unissued securities may also negatively impact our ability to raise additional capital through the sale of our debt or equity securities.

 

In such a restricted cash flow scenario, the Company would be unable to complete its business plan steps, and would, instead, delay all cash intensive activities. Without necessary cash flow, the Company may become dormant during the next twelve months, or until such time as necessary funds could be raised in the equity securities market.

 

While the Company is of the opinion that good faith estimates of the Company’s ability to secure additional capital in the future to reach its goals have been made, there is no guarantee that the Company will receive sufficient funding to sustain operations or implement any future business plan steps.

Note D – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

1.Cash and cash equivalents

 

The Company considers all cash on hand and in banks, certificates of deposit and other highly-liquid investments with maturities of three months or less, when purchased, to be cash and cash equivalents.

 

2.Reorganization costs

 

The Company has adopted the provisions required by the Start-Up Activities topic of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification whereby all costs incurred with the reorganization of the Company were charged to operations as incurred.

 

3.Income taxes

 

The Company files income tax returns in the United States of America and may file, as applicable and appropriate, various state(s). With few exceptions, the Company is no longer subject to U.S. federal, state and local, as applicable, income tax examinations by regulatory taxing authorities for years ending before

December 31, 2011.

 

The Company uses the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes. At March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively, the deferred tax asset and deferred tax liability accounts, as recorded when material to the financial statements, are entirely the result of temporary differences. Temporary differences generally represent differences in the recognition of assets and liabilities for tax and financial reporting purposes, primarily accumulated depreciation and amortization, allowance for doubtful accounts and vacation accruals.

 

The Company has adopted the provisions required by the Income Taxes topic of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. The Codification Topic requires the recognition of potential liabilities as a result of management’s acceptance of potentially uncertain positions for income tax treatment on a “more-likely-than-not” probability of an assessment upon examination by a respective taxing authority. As a result of the implementation of Codification’s Income Tax Topic, the Company did not incur any liability for unrecognized tax benefits.

 

4.Income (loss) per common share

 

Basic earnings (loss) per common share is computed by dividing the net income (loss) available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the respective period presented in our accompanying financial statements.

 

Fully diluted earnings (loss) common per share is computed similar to basic income (loss) per share except that the denominator is increased to include the number of common stock equivalents (primarily outstanding options and warrants).

 

Common stock equivalents represent the dilutive effect of the assumed exercise of the outstanding stock options and warrants, using the treasury stock method, at either the beginning of the respective period presented or the date of issuance, whichever is later, and only if the common stock equivalents are considered dilutive based upon the Company’s net income (loss) position at the calculation date.

 

As of March 31, 2015 and 2014, the Company had no outstanding stock warrants, options or convertible securities which could be considered as dilutive for purposes of the loss per share calculation.

5.Fair value of financial instruments

 

The carrying amount of cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable and notes payable, as applicable, approximates fair value due to the short term nature of these items and/or the current interest rates payable in relation to current market conditions.

 

Interest rate risk is the risk that the Company’s earnings are subject to fluctuations in interest rates on either investments or on debt and is fully dependent upon the volatility of these rates. The Company does not use derivative instruments to moderate its exposure to interest rate risk, if any.

 

Financial risk is the risk that the Company’s earnings are subject to fluctuations in interest rates or foreign exchange rates and are fully dependent upon the volatility of these rates. The Company does not use derivative instruments to moderate its exposure to financial risk, if any.

 

6.Recent accounting pronouncements

 

The Company does not expect the adoption of recently issued accounting pronouncements to have a significant impact on the Company’s results of operations, financial position or cash flows.

 

7.Subsequent events

 

Management has evaluated all activity of the Company through the issue date of the financial statements for disclosure consideration.

 

Note E - Note Payable to Controlling Stockholder

 

The Company and its current controlling stockholder, Craig Laughlin, have agreed that additional funds will be necessary in the foreseeable future to support the corporate entity and comply with the periodic reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. To this end, Mr. Laughlin has agreed to lend the Company up to an additional $50,000 with a original maturity period not to exceed three (3) years from the initial funding date at an interest rate of 6.0% per annum. The maturity date was subsequently extended to September 2010 and is currently due upon demand. As of the date of the release of these financial statements, Mr. Laughlin has made no demand for payment. As of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively, Mr. Laughlin has advanced approximately $84,173 and $84,173 under this agreement. Further, as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the Company has accrued interest payable of approximately $20,533 and $19,288, respectively, under this agreement.

Note F - Notes Payable

 

As of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively, the Company has borrowed an aggregate $122,300 on six separate promissory notes payable to unrelated third parties. These notes bear interest at 6.0% per annum and are due on the earlier of October 1, 2015 or upon closing by the Company of a financing in the amount of $1,000,000 or more. These notes may be prepaid at any time without penalty and are unsecured.

 

   March 31,   December 31, 
   2015   2014 
         
Outstanding principal  $122,300   $122,300 
Accrued interest payable   3,800    2,215 
           
Total obligation outstanding  $126,100   $124,515 

 

Note G - Income Taxes

 

The components of income tax (benefit) expense for each of the three-month periods ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively, are as follows:

 

   Three months   Three months

    -    - 
Total  $-   $- 

 

As of March 31, 2015, the Company has an aggregate net operating loss carryforward of approximately $238,000 to offset future taxable income. The amount and availability of any net operating loss carryforwards will be subject to the limitations set forth in the Internal Revenue Code. Such factors as the number of shares ultimately issued within a three year look-back period; whether there is a deemed more than 50 percent change in control; the applicable long-term tax exempt bond rate; continuity of historical business; and subsequent income of the Company all enter into the annual computation of allowable annual utilization of any net operating loss carryforward(s).

The Company's income tax expense (benefit) for each of the three-month periods ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively, differed from the statutory federal rate of 34 percent as follows:

 

   Three months   Three months 
   ended   ended 
   March 31,   March 31, 
   2015   2014

State income taxes   -    - 
Other, including reserve for deferred tax asset and application of net operating loss carryforward   7,400    10,000 
           
Income tax expense  $-   $- 

 

Temporary differences, consisting primarily of the prospective usage of net operating loss carryforwards give rise to deferred tax assets and liabilities as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively:

 

   March 31,   December 31, 
   2015   2014 
Deferred tax assets          
Net operating loss carryforwards  $81,000   $73,600 
Less valuation allowance   (81,000)   (73,600)
           
Net Deferred Tax Asset  $-   $- 

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2015, the valuation allowance against the deferred tax asset increased by approximately $7,400.

 

Note H - Common Stock Transactions

 

In March 2014, the Company issued 5,000 shares of restricted, unregistered common stock to an unrelated third-party corporation as a final inducement to permanently close negotiations related to a former proposed business combination transaction. These shares were valued at approximately $950, or $0.19 per share, which approximated the closing price on the last recorded open market transaction nearest the issuance date.

Item 2 - Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

(1)Caution Regarding Forward-Looking Information

 

Certain statements contained in this quarterly filing, including, without limitation, statements containing the words "believes", "anticipates", "expects" and words of similar import, constitute forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of the Company, or industry results, to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.

 

Such factors include, among others, the following: international, national and local general economic and market conditions: demographic changes; the ability of the Company to sustain, manage or forecast its growth; the ability of the Company to successfully make and integrate acquisitions; raw material costs and availability; new product development and introduction; existing government regulations and changes in, or the failure to comply with, government regulations; adverse publicity; competition; the loss of significant customers or suppliers; fluctuations and difficulty in forecasting operating results; changes in business strategy or development plans; business disruptions; the ability to attract and retain qualified personnel; the ability to protect technology; and other factors referenced in this and previous filings.

 

Given these uncertainties, readers of this Form 10-Q and investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements. The Company disclaims any obligation to update any such factors or to publicly announce the result of any revisions to any of the forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect future events or developments.

 

(2)General

 

HPC Acquisitions, Inc. (the “Company”) was initially formed under the laws of the State of Minnesota as Herky Packing Co. on July 17, 1968. The Company initially produced and marketed meat snack foods, principally beef jerky, smoked dried beef and snack sausages, through food brokers, distributors and wagon jobbers. Despite a 1970 restructuring, including the relocation to an approximate 12,500 square foot production facility, the Company’s efforts were unsuccessful and all operations were terminated by the end of 1970. On April 10, 1972, the Company changed its corporate name to H. P. C. Incorporated. In connection with this name change, the Company acquired Ed Stein’s Tire Center, Inc., a Minneapolis, Minnesota-based distributor of Gates tires. This acquisition was unsuccessful and reversed in 1973.

 

Since December 31, 1973, the Company has had no operations, assets or significant liabilities.

 

On August 7, 2006, the Company changed its state of incorporation from Minnesota to Nevada by means of a merger with and into HPC Acquisitions, Inc., a Nevada corporation formed on June 12, 2006 solely for the purpose of effecting the reincorporation. The Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws of the Nevada corporation are the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws of the surviving corporation. Such Articles of Incorporation modified the Company’s capital structure to allow for the issuance of up to 50,000,000 shares of $0.001 par value common stock and up to 10,000,000 shares of $0.001 par value preferred stock.

 

The Company’s current business plan is to locate and combine with an existing, privately-held company which is profitable or, in management's view, has growth potential, irrespective of the industry in which it is engaged. A combination may be structured as a merger, consolidation, exchange of the Company's common stock for stock or assets or any other form which will result in the combined enterprise's becoming a publicly-held corporation. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully implement our business plan. In April 2014, the Company entered into a non-binding letter of intent for a potential transaction with a third party. However, no definitive agreement respecting the transaction has been reached and there is no assurance any such agreement will ever be reached.

 

The Company's ultimate continued existence is dependent upon its ability to generate sufficient cash flows from operations to support its daily operations as well as provide sufficient resources to retire existing liabilities and obligations on a timely basis. The Company faces considerable risk in it’s business plan and a potential shortfall of funding due the potential inability to raise capital in the equity securities market. If adequate operating capital and/or cash flows are not received during the next twelve months, the Company could become dormant until such time as necessary funds could be raised.

 

12
 

 

The Company anticipates future sales or issuances of equity securities to fulfill its business plan. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain additional funding through the sales of additional equity securities or, that such funding, if available, will be obtained on terms favorable to or affordable by the Company.

 

There is no assurance that the implementation of our business plan or any future business combination transaction will result in the appreciation of our stockholders’ investment in the then outstanding common stock.

 

(3)Results of Operations

 

The Company had no revenue for either of the three month periods ended March 31, 2015 or 2014.

 

General and administrative expenses of approximately $18,000 and $28,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively, were directly related to maintaining the corporate entity and continued compliance with the periodic reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and to activities related to the Company’s stated business plan to seek out and consummate a merger, acquisition or outright sale transaction where the Company’s stockholders will benefit.

 

It is anticipated that future expenditure levels will fluctuate based upon the Company’s activities related to its stated business plan to seek out and consummate a merger, acquisition or outright sale transaction where the Company's stockholders will benefit.

 

Loss per share for each of the three month periods ended March 31, 2015 and 2014 were $0.00 and $0.00, respectively, based on the weighted-average shares issued and outstanding at the end of each respective period.

 

The Company does not expect to generate any meaningful revenue or incur operating expenses for purposes other than fulfilling the objectives of the Company’s business plan, as previously stated, and the obligations of being a reporting company under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 unless and until such time that the Company acquires or participates in a business with revenue producing activities.

 

(4)Plan of Business

 

General

 

The Company intends to locate and combine with an existing, privately-held company which is profitable or, in management's view, has growth potential, irrespective of the industry in which it is engaged. However, the Company does not intend to combine with a private company which may be deemed to be an investment company subject to the Investment Company Act of 1940. A combination may be structured as a merger, consolidation, exchange of the Company's common stock for stock or assets or any other form which will result in the combined enterprise's becoming a publicly-held corporation.

 

Pending negotiation and consummation of a combination, the Company anticipates that it will have, aside from carrying on its search for a combination partner, no business activities, and, thus, will have no source of revenue. Should the Company incur any significant liabilities prior to a combination with a private company, it may not be able to satisfy such liabilities as are incurred.

 

If the Company's management pursues one or more combination opportunities beyond the preliminary negotiations stage and those negotiations are subsequently terminated, it is foreseeable that such efforts will exhaust the Company's ability to continue to seek such combination opportunities before any successful combination can be consummated. In that event, the Company's common stock will become worthless and holders of the Company's common stock will receive a nominal distribution, if any, upon the Company's liquidation and dissolution.

 

Combination Suitability Standards

 

In its pursuit for a combination partner, the Company's management intends to consider only combination candidates which are profitable or, in management's view, have growth potential. The Company's management does not intend to pursue any combination proposal beyond the preliminary negotiation stage with any combination candidate which does not furnish the Company with audited financial statements for at least its most recent fiscal year and unaudited financial statements for interim periods subsequent to the date of such audited financial statements, or is in a position to provide such financial statements in a timely manner. The Company will, if necessary funds are available, engage attorneys and/or accountants in its efforts to investigate a combination candidate and to consummate a business combination. The Company may require payment of fees by such combination candidate to fund the investigation of such candidate. In the event such a combination candidate is engaged in a high technology business, the Company may also obtain reports from independent organizations of recognized standing covering the technology being developed and/or used by the candidate. The Company's limited financial resources may make the acquisition of such reports difficult or even impossible to obtain and, thus, there can be no assurance that the Company will have sufficient funds to obtain such reports when considering combination proposals or candidates. To the extent the Company is unable to obtain the advice or reports from experts, the risks of any combined enterprise(s) being unsuccessful will be enhanced. Furthermore, to the knowledge of the Company's officers and directors, neither the candidate nor any of its directors, executive officers, principal stockholders or general partners:

(1)will have been convicted of securities fraud, mail fraud, tax fraud, embezzlement, bribery, or a similar criminal offense involving misappropriation or theft of funds, or be the subject of a pending investigation or indictment involving any of those offenses;
(2)will have been subject to a temporary or permanent injunction or restraining order arising from unlawful transactions in securities, whether as issuer, underwriter, broker, dealer, or investment advisor, may be the subject of any pending investigation or a defendant in a pending lawsuit arising from or based upon allegations of unlawful transactions in securities; or
(3)will have been a defendant in a civil action which resulted in a final judgement against it or him awarding damages or rescission based upon unlawful practices or sales of securities.

 

The Company's officers and directors will make these determinations by asking pertinent questions of the management of prospective combination candidates. Such persons will also ask pertinent questions of others who may be involved in the combination proceedings. However, the officers and directors of the Company will not generally take other steps to verify independently information obtained in this manner which is favorable. Unless something comes to their attention which puts them on notice of a possible disqualification which is being concealed from them, such persons will rely on information received from the management of the prospective combination candidate and from others who may be involved in the combination proceedings.

 

(5)Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

At March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the Company had a working capital deficit of approximately $235,000 and $151,000, respectively, inclusive of a note payable and accrued interest payable thereon, to the Company’s sole officer and director of approximately $105,000 and $103,500.

 

The Company currently has limited cash on hand, no operating assets and a business plan with inherent risk. Because of these factors, the Company’s auditors have issued an audit opinion on the Company’s annual financial statements which includes a statement describing our going concern status. This means, in the auditor’s opinion, substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern exists at the date of their opinion.

 

The Company’s current business plan is to locate and combine with an existing, privately-held company which is profitable or, in management's view, has growth potential, irrespective of the industry in which it is engaged. A combination may be structured as a merger, consolidation, exchange of the Company's common stock for stock or assets or any other form which will result in the combined enterprise's becoming a publicly-held corporation. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to successfully implement our business plan.

 

It is the belief of management and significant stockholders that, should the need arise, they will provide sufficient working capital necessary to support and preserve the integrity of the corporate entity. However, there is no legal obligation for either management or significant stockholders to provide additional future funding. Further, the Company is at the mercy of future economic trends and business operations for the Company’s majority stockholder to have the resources available to support the Company. Should this pledge fail to provide financing, the Company has not identified any alternative sources. Consequently, there is substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company's need for working capital may change dramatically as a result of any business acquisition or combination transaction. There can be no assurance that the Company will identify any such business, product, technology or company suitable for acquisition in the future. Further, there can be no assurance that the Company would be successful in consummating any acquisition on favorable terms or that it will be able to profitably manage the business, product, technology or company it acquires.

 

Regardless of whether the Company’s cash assets prove to be inadequate to meet the Company’s operational needs, the Company might seek to compensate providers of services by issuances of stock in lieu of cash.

(6)Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our financial statements and related public financial information are based on the application of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). GAAP requires the use of estimates; assumptions, judgments and subjective interpretations of accounting principles that have an impact on the assets, liabilities, revenue and expense amounts reported. These estimates can also affect supplemental information contained in our external disclosures including information regarding contingencies, risk and financial condition. We believe our use of estimates and underlying accounting assumptions adhere to GAAP and are consistently and conservatively applied. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ materially from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We continue to monitor significant estimates made during the preparation of our financial statements.

 

Our significant accounting policies are summarized in Note D of our financial statements. While all these significant accounting policies impact our financial condition and results of operations, we view certain of these policies as critical. Policies determined to be critical are those policies that have the most significant impact on our financial statements and require management to use a greater degree of judgment and estimates. Actual results may differ from those estimates. Our management believes that given current facts and circumstances, it is unlikely that applying any other reasonable judgments or estimate methodologies would cause effect on our consolidated results of operations, financial position or liquidity for the periods presented in this report.

 

Item 3 - Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

Item 4 - Controls and Procedures

 

(a)Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive and Financial Officer (Certifying Officer), has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rules 13a-15 promulgated under the Exchange Act as of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report. Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Commission’s rules and forms and include controls and procedures designed to ensure that information we are required to disclose in such reports is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Certifying Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based upon that evaluation, our Certifying Officer concluded that as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by us in our reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified by the SEC due to a inherent weakness in our internal controls over financial reporting due to our status as a shell corporation and having a sole officer and director. However, our Certifying Officer believes that the financial statements included in this report fairly presents, in all material respects, our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows for the respective periods presented.

 

(b)Changes in Internal Controls

 

There were no significant changes (including corrective actions with regard to significant deficiencies or material weaknesses) in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the quarter ended March 31, 2015 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
