Our consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). These accounting principles require management to make certain estimates, judgments, and assumptions. We believe that the estimates, judgments, and assumptions upon which we rely are reasonable based upon information available to us at the time that these estimates, judgments, and assumptions are made. These estimates, judgments, and assumptions can affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of our consolidated financial statements as well as reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the periods presented. Our consolidated financial statements would be affected to the extent there are material differences between these estimates and actual results. In many cases, the accounting treatment of a particular transaction is specifically dictated by GAAP and does not require management’s judgment in its application. There are also areas in which management’s judgment in selecting any available alternative would not produce a materially different result. Significant estimates included in the accompanying consolidated financial statements include the fair value of acquired assets for purchase price allocation in business combinations, valuation of inventory, valuation of intangible assets, estimates of amortization period for intangible assets, estimates of depreciation period for fixed assets, valuation of equity based transactions, and the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents

Fair Value of Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measurements

The Company measures its financial assets and liabilities in accordance with GAAP. For certain of our financial instruments, including cash, accounts payable, and the short-term portion of long-term debt, the carrying amounts approximate fair value due to their short maturities.


We adopted accounting guidance for financial and non-financial assets and liabilities (ASC 820). The adoption did not have a material impact on our results of operations, financial position or liquidity. This standard defines fair value, provides guidance for measuring fair value and requires certain disclosures. This standard does not require any new fair value measurements, but rather applies to all other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements. This guidance does not apply to measurements related to share-based payments. This guidance discusses valuation techniques, such as the market approach (comparable market prices), the income approach (present value of future income or cash flow), and the cost approach (cost to replace the service capacity of an asset or replacement cost). The guidance utilizes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. The following is a brief description of those three levels:


Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.


Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable, either directly or indirectly. These include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets and quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.


Level 3: Unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore developed using estimates and assumptions developed by us, which reflect those that a market participant would use.


Accounts Receivable


Accounts receivable are recorded at fair value on the date revenue is recognized. The Company provides allowances for doubtful accounts for estimated losses resulting from the inability of its customers to repay their obligation. If the financial condition of the Company's customers were to deteriorate, resulting in an impairment of their ability to repay, additional allowances may be required. The Company provides for potential uncollectible accounts receivable based on specific customer identification and historical collection experience adjusted for existing market conditions. If market conditions decline, actual collection experience may not meet expectations and may result in decreased cash flows and increased bad debt expense.

The policy for determining past due status is based on the contractual payment terms of each customer, which are generally net 30 or net 60 days. Once collection efforts by the Company and its collection agency are exhausted, the determination for charging off uncollectible receivables is made.


Inventories


Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market using the first in, first out (FIFO) method. Provisions have been made to reduce excess or obsolete inventories to their net realizable value.


Revenue Recognition


The Company recognizes revenue on our products in accordance with ASC 605-10, “Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements”. Under these guidelines, revenue is recognized on sales transactions when all of the following exist: persuasive evidence of an arrangement did exist, delivery of product has occurred, the sales price to the buyer is fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured. The Company has several revenue streams generated directly from its website and specific revenue recognition criteria for each revenue stream is as follows:


·

Sale of merchandise directly to consumers: The Company’s product sales are recognized either FOB shipping point or FOB destination, dependent on the customer. Revenues are therefore recognized at point of ownership transfer, accordingly.


·

Advertising revenue is received directly from companies who pay the Company a monthly fee for advertising space.


·

Advertising revenues are generated by users “clicking” on website advertisements utilizing several ad network partners: Revenues are recognized, on a net basis, upon receipt of payment by the ad network partner since the revenue is not determinable until it is received.


·

Subscription revenues are generated by the sale of access to career postings on one of our websites. The term of the subscriptions range from one month to twelve months.  Revenues are recognized, on a net basis, over the term of the subscription period.  All sales are final per the subscription Terms of Use.


The Company follows the guidance of ASC 605-50-25, “Revenue Recognition, Customer Payments”. Accordingly, any incentives received from vendors are recognized as a reduction of the cost of products included in inventories. Promotional products or samples given to customers or potential customers are recognized as a cost of goods sold. Cash incentives provided to our customers are recognized as a reduction of the related sale price, and, therefore, are a reduction in sales.


Cost of Sales


Components of costs of sales include product costs, shipping costs to customers and any inventory adjustments.


Shipping and Handling Costs


The Company includes shipping and handling fees billed to customers as revenues and shipping and handling costs for shipments to customers as cost of revenues.


Sales Return Reserve Policy


Our return policy generally allows our end users to return purchased products for refund or in exchange for new products. We estimate a reserve for sales returns, if any, and record that reserve amount as a reduction of sales and as a sales return reserve liability. Sales to consumers on our web site generally may be returned within a reasonable period of time.

Product Warranty Reserve Policy


The Company is a retail distributor of products and warranties are the responsibility of the manufacturer. Therefore, the Company does not record a reserve for product warranty.


Property and Equipment


Property and equipment is recorded at cost. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method based on the estimated useful lives of the related assets of seven years for office furniture and equipment, and five years for computer equipment. Leasehold improvements, if any, would be amortized over the lesser of the lease term or the useful life of the improvements. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs along with fixed assets below our capitalization threshold of $500 are expensed as incurred.


Website Development Costs


The Company accounts for its website development costs in accordance with ASC 350-50, “Website Development Costs”.  These costs, if any, are included in intangible assets in the accompanying consolidated financial statements or expensed immediately if the Company cannot support recovery of these costs from positive future cash flows.


ASC 350-50 requires the expensing of all costs of the preliminary project stage and the training and application maintenance stage and the capitalization of all internal or external direct costs incurred during the application and infrastructure development stage. Upgrades or enhancements that add functionality are capitalized while other costs during the operating stage are expensed as incurred. The Company amortizes the capitalized website development costs over an estimated life of three years.


As of September 30, 2014 and 2013, all internally generated website costs have been expensed.


Impairment of Long-Lived Assets


The Company accounts for long-lived assets in accordance with the provisions of ASC 360-10, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets”. This statement requires that long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to future undiscounted net cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell.


Stock-Based Compensation


The Company accounts for stock-based instruments issued to employees for services in accordance with ASC Topic 718. ASC Topic 718 requires companies to recognize in the statement of operations, the grant-date fair value of stock options and other equity based compensation issued to employees. The value of the portion of an employee award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as an expense over the requisite service periods using the straight-line attribution method. The Company accounts for non-employee share-based awards in accordance with the measurement and recognition criteria of ASC Topic 505-50, “Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees”. The Company estimates the fair value of stock options by using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model.


Advertising, Marketing and Promotion


Advertising, marketing and promotion expenses are expensed as incurred and are included in selling, general and administrative expenses on the accompanying statement of operations. For the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and the nine months ended September 30, 2013, advertising, marketing and promotion expense was $83,069 and $41,758 respectively.

Income Taxes


We use the asset and liability method to account for income taxes. Under this method, deferred income taxes are determined based on the differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their reported amounts in the consolidated financial statements which will result in taxable or deductible amounts in future years and are measured using the currently enacted tax rates and laws. A valuation allowance is provided to reduce net deferred tax assets to the amount that, based on available evidence, is more likely than not to be realized.


The Company follows the provisions of ASC 740-10, Accounting for Uncertain Income Tax Positions. When tax returns are filed, it is highly certain that some positions taken would be sustained upon examination by the taxing authorities, while others are subject to uncertainty about the merits of the position taken or the amount of the position that would be ultimately sustained. In accordance with the guidance of ASC 740-10, the benefit of a tax position is recognized in the financial statements in the period during which, based on all available evidence, management believes it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination, including the resolution of appeals or litigation processes, if any. Tax positions taken are not offset or aggregated with other positions. Tax positions that meet the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold are measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that is more than 50 percent likely of being realized upon settlement with the applicable taxing authority. The portion of the benefits associated with tax positions taken that exceeds the amount measured as described above should be reflected as a liability for unrecognized tax benefits in the accompanying consolidated balance sheets along with any associated interest and penalties that would be payable to the taxing authorities upon examination.


As of September 30, 2014, tax years 2013, 2012, 2011 and 2010 remain open for IRS audit. The Company has received no notice of audit or any notifications from the IRS for any of the open tax years.


Basic and Diluted Net Earnings (Loss) Per Common Share


In accordance with ASC 260-10, “Earnings Per Share”, basic net earnings (loss) per common share is computed by dividing the net earnings (loss) for the period by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share are computed using the weighted average number of common and dilutive common stock equivalent shares outstanding during the period.  As of September 30, 2014 and 2013 there were approximately 1,500,000 and 1,360,000 common stock equivalent shares outstanding as stock options, respectively and 3,300,000 and 0 common stock equivalents from the conversion of preferred stock, respectively. Equivalent shares were not utilized, as the effect is anti-dilutive.


Risk and Uncertainty


In accordance with the provisions of ASC 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”, the Company is required to report significant risk and uncertainties that could significantly affect the amounts reported in the financial statements in the near term.  The Company is required to disclose risks and uncertainty existing in the areas of (1) nature of operations, (2) use of estimates in the preparation of financial statements, (3) significant estimates, and (4) current vulnerability due to concentrations.  The required disclosures are placed in diverse parts of these financial statements and notes.


Segment Information


In accordance with the provisions of ASC 280-10, “Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information”, the Company is required to report financial and descriptive information about its reportable operating segments. The Company does not have any reportable operating segments as of September 30, 2014 and 2013.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements


In June 2014, 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”. The update removes all incremental financial reporting requirements from GAAP for development stage entities, including the removal of Topic 915 from the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. In addition, the update adds an example disclosure in Risks and Uncertainties (Topic 275) to illustrate one way that an entity that has not begun planned principal operations could provide information about the risks and uncertainties related to the company’s current activities. Furthermore, the update removes an exception provided to development stage entities in Consolidations (Topic 810) for determining whether an entity is a variable interest entity—which may change the consolidation analysis, consolidation decision, and disclosure requirements for a company that has an interest in a company in the development stage. The update is effective for the annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2014, including interim periods within that reporting period.  We have elected to adopt the provisions of this ASU early; accordingly all of the past disclosures, prior to June 30, 2014 reporting period, and presentations on development stage accounting have been eliminated.


We have evaluated all other recent accounting pronouncements, which are not expected to have a material impact on the financial statements upon adoption.


NOTE 2 - GOING CONCERN


The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company sustained a net loss attributable to common shareholders of $1,120,156 and used cash in operating activities of $1,264,443 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. The Company had an accumulated deficit of $4,083,564 at September 30, 2014. These factors raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time. The Company’s continuation as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate revenues and its ability to continue receiving investment capital and loans from related parties to sustain its current level of operations.


Management plans to continue to raise additional capital through private placements and is exploring additional avenues for future fund-raising through both public and private sources.


The condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

Stock Incentive Plan and Stock Option Grants to Employees and Directors


The Company accounts for stock option compensation issued to employees for services in accordance with ASC Topic 718. ASC Topic 718 requires companies to recognize in the statement of operations the grant-date fair value of stock options and other equity based compensation issued to employees. The value of the portion of an employee award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as an expense over the requisite service periods using the straight-line attribution method. The Company accounts for non-employee share-based awards in accordance with the measurement and recognition criteria of ASC Topic 505-50, Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees. The Company estimates the fair value of stock options by using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model.


Stock options issued to consultants and other non-employees as compensation for services provided to the Company are accounted for based on the fair value of the services provided or the estimated fair market value of the option, whichever is more reliably measurable in accordance with FASB ASC 505, Equity, and FASB ASC 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation, including related amendments and interpretations. The related expense is recognized over the period the services are provided.

On April 20, 2011, the Company’s board of directors and majority stockholder adopted the 2011 Stock Option Plan (the “2011 Plan”), to be effective on January 3, 2011. The purpose of the 2011 Plan is to provide an incentive to attract and retain directors, officers, consultants, advisors and employees whose services are considered valuable, to encourage a sense of proprietorship and to stimulate an active interest of such persons into our development and financial success. Under the 2011 Plan, the Company is authorized to issue incentive stock options intended to qualify under Section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), non-qualified stock options, stock appreciation rights, performance shares, restricted stock and long-term incentive awards. The Company had reserved for issuance an aggregate of 900,000 shares of common stock under the 2011 Plan. The maximum aggregate number of shares of Company stock that shall be subject to grants made under the 2011 Plan to any individual during any calendar year shall be 180,000 shares. The Company’s board of directors will administer the 2011 Plan until such time as such authority has been delegated to a committee of the board of directors. The material terms of each option granted pursuant to the 2011 Plan by the Company shall contain the following terms: (i) that the purchase price of each share purchasable under an incentive option shall be determined by the Committee at the time of grant, (ii) the term of each option shall be fixed by the Committee, but no option shall be exercisable more than 10 years after the date such option is granted and (iii) in the absence of any option vesting periods designated by the Committee at the time of grant, options shall vest and become exercisable in terms and conditions, consistent with the 2011 Plan, as may be determined by the Committee and specified in the grant instrument. During the three months ended September 30, 2014 81,000 shares of common stock under the 2011 Plan were forfeited.  As of September 30, 2014, 81,000 shares were remaining under the 2011 Plan for future issuance.


On April 1, 2013, the Company’s board of directors and majority stockholder adopted the 2013 Stock Option Plan (the “2013 Plan”), to be effective on April 1, 2013. The purpose of the 2013 Plan is to provide an incentive to attract and retain directors, officers, consultants, advisors and employees whose services are considered valuable, to encourage a sense of proprietorship and to stimulate an active interest of such persons into our development and financial success. Under the 2013 Plan, the Company is authorized to issue incentive stock options intended to qualify under Section 422 of the Code, non-qualified stock options, stock appreciation rights, performance shares, restricted stock and long-term incentive awards. The Company has reserved for issuance an aggregate of 900,000 shares of common stock under the 2013 Plan. The maximum aggregate number of shares of Company stock that shall be subject to grants made under the 2013 Plan to any individual during any calendar year shall be 180,000 shares.

On January 2, 2014 the Company granted 50,000 ten-year stock options, which have an exercise price of $0.50 per share and cliff vest annually over four years starting in January 2015 to an employee. The aggregate fair value of these options was computed at $8,167 or $0.1633 per option.


On August 22, 2014 the Company granted 25,000 ten-year stock options, which have an exercise price of $0.50 per share to a consultant.  All 25,000 stock options vested on August 22, 2014.  The aggregate fair value on these options was computed at $8,580 or $0.3432 per option.


On September 3, 2014 the Company granted 40,000 ten-year stock options, which have an exercise price of $0.50 per share and cliff vest annually over four years starting in September 2015 to a director.  The aggregate fair value of these options was computed at $13,728 or $0.3432 per option.


On September 17, 2014 the Company granted 100,000 ten-year stock options, which have an exercise price of $0.50 per share and cliff vest annually over four years starting in October 2014 to an employee.  The aggregate fair value of these options was computed at $34,320 or $0.3432 per option.

The Company estimates the fair value of share-based compensation utilizing the Black-Scholes option pricing model, which is dependent upon several variables such as the expected option term, expected volatility of our stock price over the expected option term, expected risk-free interest rate over the expected option term, expected dividend yield rate over the expected option term, and an estimate of expected forfeiture rates.


The Company believes this valuation methodology is appropriate for estimating the fair value of stock options granted to employees and directors, which is subject to ASC Topic 718 requirements.  These amounts are estimates and thus may not be reflective of actual future results, nor amounts ultimately realized by recipients of these grants.  The Company recognized share-based compensation expense on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period for each award.  The following table summarizes the assumptions the Company utilized to record compensation expense for stock options granted during the nine months ended September 30, 2014:


Assumptions:

 

 

 

Expected term (years)

 

 

6.25

 

 

Expected volatility

 

 

80

%

 

Risk-free interest rate

 

 

0.38%

%

 

Dividend yield

 

 

0

%

 

Expected forfeiture rate

 

 

0

%

 


The expected life is computed using the simplified method, which is the average of the vesting term and the contractual term. The expected volatility is based on an average of similar public companies historical volatility, as the Company does not currently trade on the open market. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yields with terms equivalent to the expected term of the related option at the time of the grant. Dividend yield is based on historical trends. While the Company believes these estimates are reasonable, the compensation expense recorded would increase if the expected life was increased, a higher expected volatility was used, or if the expected dividend yield increased.


The Company recorded $51,898 and $30,616 stock option expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and September 30, 2013 respectively in connection with all options.


As of September 30, 2014 there were total unrecognized compensation costs related to non-vested share-based compensation arrangements of $109,041 to be recognized through September 2018.

NOTE 11 – CONCENTRATIONS


The Company purchases a substantial amount of its products from two vendors; Vendor A and Vendor B. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, these two vendors accounted for 47% and 33%, respectively of total products purchased. Although we continue to expand our product line and vendor relationships, due to the high concentration and reliance on these two vendors, the loss of one of these two vendors could adversely affect the Company’s operations.





17



 


The Company sells many of its products through various distribution portals, which include Amazon and eBay. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, these two portals accounted for 85% and 14%, respectively of our total product sales. Due to high concentration and reliance on these portals, the loss of a working relationship with either of these two portals could adversely affect the Company’s operations.


A substantial amount of payments for our products sold are processed through PayPal. A disruption in PayPal payment processing could have an adverse effect on the Company’s operations and cash flow. The Company established an account with a payment processor as an alternate portal for receiving payments for our products sold.


Credit Risk


The Company minimizes the concentration of credit risk associated with its cash by maintaining its cash with high quality federally insured financial institutions. However, cash balances in excess of the FDIC insured limit of $250,000 are at risk. At September 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, respectively, the Company had cash balances above the FDIC insured limit of $65,377 and $716,847 respectively. The Company performs ongoing evaluations of its trade accounts receivable customers and generally does not require collateral.


Concentration of Funding


During the nine months ended September 30, 2014 and 2013, a large portion of the Company’s funding was provided by the sale of shares of the Company’s common stock to related parties.


NOTE 12 – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

On October 1, 2014, the Company authorized the issuance to a consultant the equivalent of $7,500 in shares of the Company’s common stock per calendar quarter for social media related services.  On October 10, 2014, the Company issued to a consultant 10,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at $0.75 per share, or $7,500 for social media related services.  The Company valued these common shares based on the most recently traded price paid by investors in the OTCQB market as of the date of issuance.

On October 15, 2014, the Company issued to a consultant 37,500 shares of the Company’s common stock at $0.75 per share, or $28,125 for services rendered pursuant to the Investor Relations Consulting Agreement entered into by the Company of September 15, 2014.  The Company valued these common shares based on the most recently traded price paid by investors in the OTCQB market as of the date of issuance.

On October 15, 2014 the Company granted 40,000 ten-year stock options, which have an exercise price of $0.78 per share and cliff vest annually over four years starting in October 2015 to a director.  The aggregate fair value of these options was computed at $12,256 or $0.3064 per option.


The Company entered into a premium finance agreement on October 30, 2014 with Flat Iron Capital for (1) the Company’s Director’s and Officer’s (D & O) insurance coverage for the period October 31, 2014 through October 30, 2015, (2) a six-year tail policy for the Company’s Director’s and Officer’s (D & O) insurance coverage which terminated on October 31, 2014, and (3) the Employment Practices Liability insurance coverage for the period October 31, 2014 through October 30, 2015.  The Company financed $48,172 (including interest of $1,615) from Flat Iron Capital.  The terms of the loan are nine equal payments of $5,352 per month beginning November 30, 2014.


On October 31, 2014 the Company raised additional capital through issuance of its common stock pursuant to a private placement whereby $30,000 in capital was raised through the issuance of 60,000 shares of common stock at $.50 per share to a related party founder.

Although our cash operating expenses increased by 39% for the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the three months ended September, 2013, our total revenue increased by 82% and our gross profit increased by 149% for the three months ended September 30, 2014 compared to the three months ended September 30, 2013. Further, advertising revenue increased 32 times for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2013. These increases are being powered by site traffic increases of over 17 times for the three months ending September 30, 2014 as compared to the three months ending September 30, 2013 as a result of organic growth and acquisitions.  Visits to the Company’s websites increased to approximately 4,110,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2014 compared to approximately 240,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2013 as a result of organic growth and acquisitions.

Going Concern


The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company sustained net losses attributable to common shareholders of $1,120,156 and used cash in operating activities of $1,264,443 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to net losses attributable to common shareholders of $991,473 and cash used in operating activities of $947,744 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. The Company had an accumulated deficit of $4,083,564 as of September 30, 2014. The report of our independent registered public accounting firm on our consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2013, contains an explanatory paragraph regarding substantial doubt of our ability to continue as a going concern based upon our net losses, cash used in operations and accumulated deficit. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. There are no assurances we will be successful in our efforts to generate revenues or report profitable operations or to continue as a going concern, in which event investors would lose their entire investment in our company.


Results of operations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to the three and nine months ended September 30, 2013


Revenue: The Company’s total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2014 increased 82% as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2013 and total revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 increased 128% as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2013. Our revenues consist primarily of product sales (approximately 89% and 91% of total revenue for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014), and to a lesser extent advertising revenue.  The increase in our product sales reflects the impact of expanded product lines and increased visitor traffic.  We also increased our revenue from advertising revenue, which consists of advertising and subscriptions.  The increase reflects the impact of increased visitor traffic as a result of additional websites acquired and organic growth from cross traffic to our full family of sites.


Cost of sales: Cost of sales as a percentage of total revenues was 67% for the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to 76% for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and cost of sales for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 was 71% as compared to 78% for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  Our gross profit margins increased to 33% for the three months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to 24% for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 29% for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to 22% for the nine months ended September 30, 2013.  The reductions in cost of sales, resulting in increased gross profit margins, is primarily attributed to expanded product lines, strengthened purchasing power, and increased advertising revenue which has lower cost of sales than product sales.





20



 


Selling, general and administrative expenses: The Company’s total selling, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2014 increased 46% from the three months ended September 30, 2013.  Total selling, general and administrative expenses increased by 26% for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2013. The increase in total selling, general and administrative expenses can be attributed to ongoing implementation of the Company’s business plan and our need to add employees to manage our growth. Non-cash amortization expense represents a substantial portion of the increase in total selling, general and administrative expense for the three months ending September 2014 and for the nine months ending September 30, 2014, which is new compared to the comparable periods in 2013.  The following expenses represent the material increases in our total selling, general and administrative expenses for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 from the comparable period in 2013:


·

payroll, payroll taxes, and employee medical expense increased by $64,179 and $173,718 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014;

·

rent increased by $4,447 and $18,589 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014;

·

stock based, non-cash compensation decreased by $9,884 as a result of forfeited stock options, and increased by $21,282 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014 for new option issuances;

·

advertising and marketing expense increased by $4,283 and $41,311 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014; and

·

non-cash amortization expense, which represents amortization of the Company’s website acquisition assets, increased by $42,912 and $95,761 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2014.


Our cash operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2014 increased by 39% from the three months ended September 30, 2013.  The Company’s cash operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 increased by 22% from the nine months ended September 30, 2013. We anticipate that our operating expenses for the remainder of 2014 will increase from a monthly cash average of $130,000 to an approximate monthly cash average of $140,000 per month. This increase in anticipated operating expenses will be primarily affected by our need to add employees to manage our continuous growth.


Liquidity and capital resources


Liquidity is the ability of a company to generate sufficient cash to satisfy its needs for cash. As of September 30, 2014 we had $380,114 in cash and cash equivalents and working capital of $850,777, as compared to cash and cash equivalents of $1,162,632 and working capital of $1,298,882 at December 31, 2013. Our principal sources of operating capital have been equity financings and loans from related parties. During the nine months ended September 30, 2014 we raised $1,050,000 in capital through the sale of our securities, including $800,000 from sales to related parties, and an additional $25,000 from exercised stock options.  


We continue to use our working capital to purchase additional websites.  During the nine months ended September 30, 2014, the Company spent $572,000 for the purchase of Leoaffairs.com, Fireaffairs.com, Teacheraffairs.com, Welcomehomeblog.com, FDCareers.com, Popularmilitary.com, and Thepoliceblotter.com.  Presently, our average monthly operating overhead is approximately $146,000 of which, approximately $130,000 is cash operating overhead. We intend to increase our average monthly cash operating overhead to $140,000 if we are able to raise additional capital with the initial proceeds being used for an increase in general and administrative expenses, branding, marketing, advertising and promotion, ongoing website development and operations and inventory. In the absence of additional funding, we will need to decrease our expenses, which will adversely impact on our plan of operations.


While we generated revenues of $742,006 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014, we do not anticipate that we will generate sufficient income to fund our operations for the next 12 months and we will need to raise additional working capital of at least $1,000,000. We do not have any firm commitments for this necessary capital and there are no assurances we will be successful in raising the capital upon terms and conditions, which are acceptable to us, if at all. If we are unable to raise the necessary additional working capital, absent a significant increase in our revenues, of which there is no assurance, we will be unable to continue to grow our company and may be forced to reduce certain operating expenses in an effort to conserve our working capital.

Cash flows


Net cash flows used in operating activities was $1,264,433 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to $947,744 used in operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. In the nine months ended September 30, 2014 we used cash primarily to fund our net loss of $1,109,539, acquisitions of websites of $572,000, and increases in our inventory of more than $347,839. The increase in our inventory of 115% at September 30, 2014 from December 31, 2013 reflects both increased inventory related to an expansion of product lines as well as timing of shipments of additional inventory.


Net cash flows used in investing activities was $581,566 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to $7,853 used in investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 due to the purchase of fixed assets and the acquisition of websites totaling $572,000 for the nine month period ending September 30, 2014.


Net cash flows provided from financing activities was $1,063,491 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014 as compared to $816,956 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013. In both periods, cash was provided from the sale of our securities, net of repayments of debt obligations.


Critical accounting policies


The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reported periods. The more critical accounting estimates include estimates related to revenue recognition and accounts receivable allowances. We also have other key accounting policies, which involve the use of estimates, judgments and assumptions that are significant to understanding our results, which are described in Note 1 to our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements appearing elsewhere in this report.


Recent accounting pronouncements


In June 2014, 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”. The update removes all incremental financial reporting requirements from GAAP for development stage entities, including the removal of Topic 915 from the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. In addition, the update adds an example disclosure in Risks and Uncertainties (Topic 275) to illustrate one way that an entity that has not begun planned principal operations could provide information about the risks and uncertainties related to the company’s current activities. Furthermore, the update removes an exception provided to development stage entities in Consolidations (Topic 810) for determining whether an entity is a variable interest entity—which may change the consolidation analysis, consolidation decision, and disclosure requirements for a company that has an interest in a company in the development stage. The update is effective for the annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2014, including interim periods within that reporting period.  We have elected to adopt the provisions of this ASU early, accordingly all of the past disclosures and presentations, prior to June 30, 2014, on development stage accounting have been eliminated. We have evaluated all other recent accounting pronouncements, which are not expected to have a material impact on the financial statements upon adoption.


Off balance sheet arrangements


As of the date of this report, we do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors. The term "off-balance sheet arrangement" generally means any transaction, agreement or other contractual arrangement to which an entity unconsolidated with us is a party, under which we have any obligation arising under a guarantee contract, derivative instrument or variable interest or a retained or contingent interest in assets transferred to such entity or similar arrangement that serves as credit, liquidity or market risk support for such assets.

ITEM 4.

CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.


Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures. We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures” as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognized that disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of disclosure controls and procedures are met. Additionally, in designing disclosure controls and procedures, our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible disclosure controls and procedures. The design of any disclosure controls and procedures 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. Based on their evaluation as of the end of the period covered by this report, our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective such that the information relating to our company, required to be disclosed in our Securities and Exchange Commission reports (i) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure as a result of continuing material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting as described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2013.  A material weakness is a deficiency, or combination of deficiencies, that results in more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected.  These material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting related to:


 

·

the Company current has only one employee who is responsible for handling the cash and making deposits, posting cash receipts, writing and mailing checks, and posting cash disbursements. Our CEO reviews bank statements and reconciliations on a monthly basis as a mitigating control until such time as funds are available to the Company to create a position to segregate duties consistent with control objectives, and

 

·

we do not currently have monitoring controls in place to ensure correct analysis and application of generally accepted accounting principles. As a result, the Company is contemplating retaining an outside accountant with SEC accounting experience on an as needed basis as a monitoring control.


Management believes that the material weaknesses set forth above did not have an effect on the Company's financial reporting for the period ended September 30, 2014. However, management believes that the lack of a functioning audit committee and lack of a majority of outside directors on the Company's board of directors can adversely affect reporting in the future years, when our operations become more complex and less transparent and require higher level of financial expertise from the overseeing body of the Company.


We are committed to improving our financial organization. As part of this commitment, we will, as soon as funds are available to the Company:


 

·

appoint one or more outside directors to our board of directors who shall be appointed to the audit committee of the Company resulting in a fully functioning audit committee who will undertake the oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures;

 

·

create a position to segregate duties consistent with control objectives and will increase our personnel resources; and

 

·

hire independent third parties or consultants to provide expert advice as needed.


We will continue to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of our internal controls and procedures and our internal controls over financial reporting on an ongoing basis and are committed to taking further action and implementing additional enhancements or improvements, as necessary and as funds allow. We do not, however, expect that the material weaknesses in our disclosure controls will be remediated until such time as we have improved our internal control over financial reporting.


Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting. There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during our last fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
