HOTEL OUTSOURCE MANAGEMENT INTERNATIONAL, INC.

PART I.

ITEM 1:
DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
 
General
 
Hotel Outsource Management International, Inc.  is a multi-national service provider in the hospitality industry, supplying a range of services in relation to computerized minibars that are primarily intended for in-room refreshments. In addition, we have manufacture and install our own proprietary computerized minibar, the HOMI® 336 and the HOMI ® 330, which are the first in a new range of products currently under development and/or manufacture. The HOMI® 336 and the HOMI ® 330 are the first products to be designed and manufactured by the Company.
 
Hotel Outsource Management International, Inc. is a holding company for several subsidiaries which market, and operate computerized minibars in hotels located in the United States, Europe and Israel. Hotel Outsource Management International, Inc. and its subsidiaries may collectively be referred to as "we", "us", "our" or" HOMI."  HOMI was incorporated in Delaware on November 9, 2000 under the name Benjamin Acquisitions, Inc.
 
Our core activities focus primarily on manufacturing, operating, servicing and marketing computerized minibars installed in upscale hotels throughout the world.
 
We believe that by using the appropriate equipment, including technologically advanced computerized minibars, we are able to materially improve the performance of the minibar departments, thereby improving the hotel’s bottom line.
 
For some years now, the hotel industry has been focusing on outsourcing many of the functions related to its key activities, in order to increase efficiency and lower fixed costs. In periods of economic slow-down, the interest in outsourcing solution may actually increase. We offer our customers a number of solutions that are designed to meet this need, in relation to the minibar departments, ranging from consultation and supervision services, all the way to full outsource installation and operation arrangements.
 
Whether we are consulting to the hotel, or managing the entire minibar department, we focus on hands-on, expert and dedicated management, on-site supervision, and disciplined implementation of specialized procedures which we have developed, in order to achieve our goals and improve the department’s performance.
 
Using these methods, we already manage many thousands of minibars for our customers, who are spread over four continents around the world.
 
We have been doing business since 1997 through various subsidiaries. The current corporate structure, in which we are a holding company for various wholly owned subsidiaries around the world, has been in place since 2001. Our common stock has been listed on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board, or “OTC Bulletin Board since February 2004 under the symbol "HOUM.OB."
 
Our Growth Strategy
 
It is our objective to continue to increase the number of minibars which we manage in hotels, using the various business models which we have developed, in accordance with each customer’s needs, as well as to engage in rental, sale and installation and outsource programs using the HOMI® 336 and the HOMI ® 330 and additional minibar models. HOMI intends to design and manufacture peripheral products and/or accessories for HOMI® 336 and the HOMI 330®. HOMI also intends to offer new and additional minibar models. Proposed additional models may be referred to as the “New Range of Products.”
 
We also intend, among other things, to expand our activities in those hotels in which a minibar system is already installed and operational. These opportunities can be particularly attractive, as a simplified business model can be implemented, without it being necessary to address matters such as the purchase and installation of the minibars themselves.
 
Our activities currently focus on North America, Europe and Israel. We intend to consolidate and increase our business in the regions in which we are already active. We also believe that there are growth opportunities in new markets, and that by implementing the same models that have been successful for us in our current markets, we will be able to replicate our success in these other regions also.

 

 

Our services have to date been directed primarily at upscale and luxury hotels. We believe that by adjusting our existing business models, it will be possible to broaden the base of our activities so as to include midscale hotels. An integral part of this strategy involves the sale, rental, installation, and outsource programs of the HOMI® 336, the HOMI ® 330 and the New Range of Products. Features of HOMI® 336, the HOMI® 330 and the New Range of Products which we believe will make it easier to enter the mid-scale range of hotels include:
 
 
·
Mechanism against mistaken charges. This has been designed to increase the accuracy of the automatic billing.
 
·
Substantially lower operating costs. This should improve profit margins and means that HOMI will be able to offer the HOMI® 336, the HOMI® 330 and the New Range of Products to midscale/mid-market hotels, a very large sector previously closed to HOMI in the past, as well as to upscale hotels.
 
·
No need for infrastructure at hotel. A standard electrical outlet is the only infrastructure required. Minibar data is transferred automatically via an integral, dedicated wireless system. This makes installation easier, and more attractive to hotels.
 
By opening the midscale range of hotels to our services, we will be able to substantially increase the potential size of our target market, which should enable us to further improve our revenues and profitability.
 
Operations
 
To date our activities have focused primarily on managing the minibar departments in upscale hotels. We offer our customers a number of solutions ranging from consultation and supervision services, all the way to full outsource installation and operation services. We currently implement several general types of business models, further detailed below.
 
 
Complete Outsource Solution.  This is currently the most prominent of the business models that we employ. Many hotels do not want to pay upfront for their minibars, and many do not want to allocate resources to operate the minibars either.
 
Accordingly, we manufacture our own New Range of Products, or purchase other manufacturers’ new minibars, and install them at the hotel’s premises, at no immediate cost to the hotel. In the case of computerized minibars, the installation also includes software designed to interface between the minibars and the customer’s existing management software, so that various actions relating to usage of the minibars such as, consumption of products from the minibars, and the locking/unlocking of the minibars, can be logged or controlled by the customer and by us. We then manage and operate the minibar department for the customer. We also supply full maintenance services for the minibars. We carry the operating expenses of the minibar department, and net revenues (after rebates and other discounts, if any) from the minibar department are shared, with us receiving the majority of the revenue and the hotel retaining the balance of the revenues. Generally, we offer incentives to the hotel so that the customer’s relative share increases as the net revenue per minibar rises.
 
In this model, the initial term of our agreement with the hotel is several years, and the customer typically has an option to extend the agreement and/or to purchase the turnkey system from us at one or more points in time during the term of the agreement. Our objective is to provide our services to the customer for the full term of the agreement, but this business model remains profitable even if the customer decides, at any stage, to exercise its option to purchase the system from us.
 
We offer this kind of model for the HOMI® 336 and the HOMI® 330, but have made some adjustments, so that the agreements are typically for a shorter period, and the division of revenues is often based on a threshold, where HOMI is guaranteed all revenue up to the threshold, and anything above the threshold is divided between HOMI and the hotel at a fixed rate, with the majority going to HOMI.
 
We believe that this type of model offers the customer many advantages in relation to its minibar department, including the following:
 
 
§
No capital expenditure on the minibars
 
 
§
A new revenue stream, if no minibars were previously installed and operational
 
 
§
No labor expenses and no operating costs
 
 
§
No purchase of goods and no inventory management
 
 
§
Added service to guests, thereby improving the customer’s competitive edge
 
 
§
No downside: hotel is minimizing its risks, both financial and other
 
 
§
Added flexibility, via the customer’s option to purchase the system

 

 
 
 
§
Outsourcing allows the hotel to focus on major revenue sources
 
 
§
Quality of service: we specialize in the field
 
 
§
Increased control and management, extensive reporting
 
 
§
No maintenance by customer
 
 
§
Periodic technical and technological upgrades
 
Management & Operation of Installed Base.  For customers who already have an installed, operational minibar system, we provide partial maintenance services, and full operation and management services. Essentially, the services which we provide in this case are the same as in the Outsource Solution for Leased Base model.
 
Management of Installed Base.  This is the model that is preferred by customers who wish to receive the benefit of our know-how and our procedures, but would like to continue to manage the minibar department themselves, using their own staff. Typically, the customer receives a limited license to utilize our know-how, and is then taught how to manage the minibar department in a more efficient and profitable manner. We provide part-time supervision and support, and the customer carries the cost of operation of the department.
 
New Business Model.  HOMI has recently begun to implement a new business model.  Under the new business model, the Company will sell HOMI minibars, to be installed in various hotels to third parties. HOMI shall manage and operate these minibars for an agreed upon management fee and profit sharing agreement.
 
 
Other.  The models discussed above are the primary types of arrangement that we offer our customers, but we approach each case with a certain amount of flexibility, which enables us to adjust a particular model so that it is tailor-made for the customer, but is still in line with the principles outlined above. Also, each model may be sub-divided into arrangements whereby we receive a fixed service charge, or a fixed percentage of gross revenues, instead of net revenues, and other similar adjustments. The models will also vary depending on the nature of the customer: upscale hotel, airport hotel or other hotel; and whether the minibars are computerized or manual. Sometimes, the existence of specific union rules in certain territories also require us to be flexible and adapt an arrangement so that it is workable for the customer, while still enabling us to manage and/or operate the minibar department in a way which is designed to be profitable for us, as well as for the customer. We may also be prepared to lease / rent minibars to customers, or enter into other financing arrangements, where circumstances so require. This may be applicable to the HOMI® 336, the HOMI® 330, and a New Range of Products.
 
Competition
 
We have a decade of hands-on experience in providing services to the hotel industry. Whether we are consulting to a hotel, or managing the entire minibar department, we focus on hands-on, expert and dedicated management, on-site supervision, and disciplined implementation of specialized procedures which we have developed, in order to achieve our goals and improve the department’s performance.
 
Many of our competitors have experience in revenue-sharing business models, while others provide systems that are supposed to improve the efficiency of a hotel’s minibar department.
 
We believe that our ability to provide a range of services, up to a Complete Outsource Solution, including a comprehensive financing solution as well as the full management and operation of the minibar department, places us in a favorable position, compared with some of our competitors.
 
Our hands-on management strategy, combined with on-site supervision, allows us to assume responsibility for the following matters, thereby enabling our customers to concentrate their efforts in other areas:
 
 
§
Implementation of our exclusive operating procedures
 
 
§
Procurement of the consumables that are offered in the minibars
 
 
§
Management of inventory control and monitoring of expiry dates of consumables
 
 
§
Implementation of procedures to handle and reduce rebates
 
 

 
 
 
§
Periodic reconciliation of accounts
 
 
§
Training of minibar attendants and front office employees
 
 
§
Maintenance and support
 
Our objective is to enable our customers to increase the net revenues that are generated by their minibar departments, including by the following means:
 
 
§
Taking active involvement in the selection and pricing of consumables
 
 
§
Implementing innovative and attractive product mixes for different room categories
 
 
§
Producing attractive, creative and novel menus
 
 
§
Improving minibar visibility
 
 
§
Proposing and implementing effective promotional activities
 
 
§
Reducing rebates & manual emptying of minibars by guests
 
 
§
In-depth and real-time data logging and reporting, thereby creating extensive sales statistics and enabling effective data-mining, designed to adapt the system to improve performance
 
A large number of hotels still manage and operate their minibar departments in-house, and the concept of outsourcing this to a company that specializes in this kind of activity is still relatively new. In some cases, there is a general lack of awareness on the part of the hotel, either of the existence of the kind of services which we offer, or of the advantages that can be gained by making use of them. Our marketing activities are directed at increasing awareness and painting a full picture for the hotels, so that they can make an educated decision, based on the relative pros and cons. We believe that our services can be of substantial benefit to our customers, but outsourcing of this type of services still accounts for a relatively small segment of the hotel industry market.
 
In addition, there are also other companies which offer some or all of the services which we offer. Presently, our main competitors are Minibar Systems, Bartech Systems International, Inc. and Domestic Holding AB which offer outsourcing or revenue sharing programs at prices that are competitive with ours. Other companies, such as Club Minibar, offer outsourcing programs utilizing manual minibars. In respect of the financing aspects of the solutions we offer to our clients, we are also in competition with certain manufacturers of the minibars themselves. With respect to the New Range of Products, we expect to be in competition with certain minibar manufacturers who offer minibars that may be perceived by our potential customers as being alternatives to our New Range of Products.
 
Whether in the regions in which we are currently active, or in territories into which we will expand our activities in the future, the arrival of other companies offering similar services may force down our profit margins if we are to remain competitive.
 
Customers and Markets
 
We currently market and provide our products and services primarily to upscale and luxury hotels.
 
As of December 31, 2009, we provide operation and/or management services to the minibar departments of 35 hotels, most of which are affiliated with prominent international hotel chains such as Sheraton, Hyatt, Radisson and others. There seems to be a direct correlation between a hotel's occupancy level and average room rate and the quantity of purchases made by guests from a hotel's minibars. As a result, in the majority of our current projects, where our revenues are based on the net revenues of the minibar departments which we operate and/or manage, our revenues are dependent on hotel occupancy levels and average room rate. Decreases in hotel occupancy levels and its average room rate could result in corresponding decreases in our revenues.
 
Governmental Regulation
 
In accordance with regulations related to the sale of alcoholic beverages in various countries in which we provide our services, there are instances where we operate under a hotel's license to sell alcohol. In such cases, although we do not incur costs of meeting regulatory compliance, we cannot guarantee a hotel's compliance with applicable regulations. Failure of a hotel to comply with these regulations could result in our inability to sell alcoholic beverages in the minibars being operated and/or managed by us, which would probably result in a decrease in our revenues.

 

 
Intellectual Property
 
We own the trademark “HOMI” in respect of the services which we supply. In numerous countries around the world, we have registered, or are in the process of registering, this trademark in our name. In 2006, we filed for patent protection with regard to certain features of the HOMI® 336 and the HOMI® 330 and our New Range of Products. A patent has been registered and issued in the United States, and has been approved in the European Union. An application is pending in Taiwan. In 2008, a further patent application was filed in the U.S., with regard to certain additional features of our New Range of Products, and this application is pending. We hold no other registered patents, trademarks, service marks or other registered intellectual property relating to our operations.
 
Employees
 
As of December 31, 2009, HOMI and its subsidiaries had 41full time employees
 
Corporate Structure
 
We have a fully owned United States subsidiary, HOMI USA, Inc. (“HOMI USA”), formerly known as Hotel Outsource Services, Inc., through which we conduct business in the United States.
 
Outside the United States, we carry on our business activities through regional subsidiaries, each of which is responsible for one or more territories in which we market and/or provide our services. These subsidiaries receive management services from us, and also retain staff of their own, either as employees or under management agreements or service agreements.
 
Our operating subsidiaries can, as of December 31, 2009, be summarized as follows:
 
HOMI USA, Inc. (“ HOMI USA ”)
HOMI Israel Ltd. (“HOMI Israel”)
HOMI Industries Ltd. (“HOMI Industries”)
 
HOMI Deutschland GmbH (“HOMI Germany”)
HOMI Italia S.R.L. (“HOMI Italy”)
HOMI France SAS
HOMI UK Limited
 
All of our subsidiaries are currently wholly owned by us, directly or indirectly.
 
ITEM 1A:
RISK FACTORS
 
1.  
      We are dependent on a small number of customers for a large percentage of our business.
 
In 2009, our three largest customers provided 25.6%   of our sales revenues, and in 2008, our three largest customers provided 30.3 % of our sales revenues. The loss of any of these customers would cause a large decrease in our sales revenues and negatively affect our ability to operate.
 
2.  
We depend on key personnel, the loss of whom could adversely affect our ability to perform, market our company and obtain contracts with major hotels.
Our success is substantially dependent on the performance of our executive officers, Daniel Cohen and Jacob Ronnel. The loss of the services of either of these executive officers could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition. In addition to being executive officers of HOMI, Mr. Cohen and Mr. Ronnel are executive officers of most of our subsidiaries. We are further dependent on the performance of Ariel Almog, Chief Executive Officer of HOMI USA, Inc. Competition for senior management, marketing personnel and other employees is intense, and there can be no assurance that we will be successful in attracting and retaining such personnel. Failure to successfully manage our personnel requirements could cause a decrease in sales and revenues. While we intend to purchase key person life insurance for our executive officers, currently we do not have any such insurance.
 
3.  
    The economy of the hospitality industry is uncertain; a downturn could decrease our opportunities for contracting with new hotels.
 
HOMI's revenues are dependent in large part on the continued growth and profitability of the lodging industry, which, in turn, is dependent on levels on travel, tourism and business entertaining. There can be no assurance that profitability and growth will be achieved.

 

 
The current global economic crisis that began during 2008, had an adverse effect on the hospitality industry, and could continue to adversely affect this industry through the foreseeable future.  A weak U.S. dollar and high rates of unemployment could result in the failure of many Americans to travel abroad, thereby resulting in decreased tourism. The ongoing crisis in the Middle East, likewise, has had a negative impact on the hospitality industry in that region, which may continue into the foreseeable future.  Any or all of these events could result in hoteliers' decision to not install our minibars, which could have a materially adversely affect HOMI's business, operating results and financial condition.
 
4.  
    In our outsource operations, we depend on the hotels' timely payment of our share of the minibar revenues, the failure of which could harm our credit, cash flow and corporate growth.
 
An integral part of our outsource operation program is in the collection of revenues from our minibars by the host hotel, and then the allocation of such revenues between HOMI and the hotel. As a result, we depend on each hotel's timely and accurate collection of revenues. To the extent we depend on our revenues to pay our expenses and/or fund our growth, hotels' failure to timely and/or accurately remit payment could adversely affect our credit, cash flow and expansion opportunities.
 
5.  
    We will need, and may be unable to obtain, additional financing which could force us to slow down or suspend our operations.
 
HOMI needs to continue to market its products and services in order to expand its operations. HOMI believes that in order to implement its basic business plan for completion of the installation of additional minibars, the Company will need to raise an additional $1,000,000, of which $540,000 has already been raised as of the date hereof.  HOMI intends to sell already installed minibar systems and continue to operate them, according to the new business model already implemented by the company in past transactions. In addition, HOMI may engage in another rights offering.  .  Management believes the $ 1,000,000 mentioned above and the continued efforts to reduce corporate expenses will provide sufficient cash for the ongoing operations of the company for the next twelve months.  However, there is no guarantee that our new business model will supply us with sufficient working capital, in which case we may need to obtain funding from other sources. There can be no assurance that additional capital will be available on acceptable terms. As such, we may not be able to fund our future operations, adequately promote our products, develop or enhance services or respond to competitive pressures. Any such inability could adversely affect our ability to enter into new contracts which would prevent us from growing the company.

6.  
     If we fail to maintain an effective system of internal controls, we may not be able to accurately report our financial results. As a result, current and potential stockholders could lose confidence in our financial reporting; which would harm our business and the trading price of our stock.
 
Effective internal controls are necessary for us to provide reliable financial reports. If we cannot provide reliable financial reports, our business and operating results could be harmed. We have in the past discovered, and may in the future discover, areas of our internal controls that need improvement.
 
In evaluating the effectiveness of our internal controls over financial reporting as of December 31, 2008, we identified two material weaknesses: entity control level; and segregation of duties in the finance department.  As a result,   management implemented a comprehensive program designed to strengthen our internal controls over financial reporting. Among other things, the program provided for (i) the addition of staff to our finance department as well as to the operational department, (ii) the integration of updated financial software, (iii) the creation of a new mechanisms for the review and approval of invoices to customers and/or from suppliers, (iv) increased level of discussion and documentation by senior financial management, (v) increased frequency of sudden checks; and (vi) the establishment of additional controls over financial reporting.
 
During the year ending December 31, 2009, management carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. Such an evaluation requires the check and testing of the existence of the required controls. As of March 31, 2010, management performed the examination with regard to all of its material subsidiaries except HOMI USA, Inc., which examination management expects to compute by June 30, 2010.However, because one material subsidiary needs to be examined, management can not conclude that all controls are effective.

ITEM 2:
PROPERTIES
 
Our operations are based primarily at hotels in which we conduct our outsource operations. Most of these hotels allow us to utilize office space free of charge. We also make use of a small amount of office space in Hertzeliya, San Francisco, and New York.
 
 

 
Our facilities are as follows:
 
 
·
Our corporate headquarters are located at 80 Wall Street, Suite 815, New York, New York, in the offices of Schonfeld & Weinstein, L.L.P., at no additional cost to us. Schonfeld & Weinstein, L.L.P. serves as our US Counsel and also owns shares in our company.
 
 
·
HOMI Israel’s and HOMI Industry's corporate headquarters are currently located at 9 Shenkar St. Hetrzeliya Pituach 47625 Israel with a monthly rent of $4700. This office is leased from an unaffiliated third party. We also lease a virtual office at 116 West 23rd Street, New York, New York from Select Office Suites, an unrelated third party, for $100 per month on a month-to-month basis.
 
 
·
HOMI USA has its corporate headquarters at 1 Embarcadero Center, Suite 500, San Francisco, California 94111. The monthly rent is $500. Most of HOMI USA’s operations are conducted from the office we utilize at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco, which is one of our customers.
 
The office space provided us by the hotels in which we operate are also usually used to store goods to be placed in the minibars and spare parts for the minibars. Generally, we do not keep a significant number of minibars in stock. Instead, we order them on an as needed basis. Typically, they are then shipped directly from the manufacturer to the customer. As we enter into additional outsource agreements with customers, we will expect to receive office space within the premises of these customers, from which we will conduct our operations.

MANAGEMENTS DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF RESULTS OF OPERATIONS AND FINANCIAL CONDITION
 
The following discussion and analysis provides information that we believe is relevant to an assessment and understanding of our results of operations and financial condition for the year ended December 31, 2009. The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2009.
 
Forward-Looking Statements
 
This annual report contains forward-looking statements as that term is defined in the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. These statements relate to future events or our future financial performance. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “plans,” “anticipates,” “believes,” “estimates,” “predicts,” “potential” or “continue” or the negative of these terms or other comparable terminology. These statements are only predictions and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause our or out industry’s actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements.
 
Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements.  Except as required by applicable law, including the securities laws of the United States, we do not intend to update any of the forward-looking statements to conform these statements to actual results.

 
12 

 
Our financial statements are stated in United States Dollars (US$) and are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. In this annual report, unless otherwise specified, all dollar amounts are expressed in United States Dollars.
 
As used in this annual report, the terms "we", "us", "our", and "HOMI" mean Hotel Outsource Management International, Inc. and its subsidiaries, unless otherwise indicated.
 
Critical Accounting Policies
 
In connection with the issuance of Securities and Exchange Commission FR-60, the following disclosure is provided to supplement the Company’s accounting policies in regard to significant areas of judgment. Management of the Company is required to make certain estimates and assumptions during the preparation of consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. These estimates and assumptions impact the reported amount of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the consolidated financial statements. These estimates also impact the reported amount of net earnings during any period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Because of the size of the financial statement elements to which they relate, some of our accounting policies and estimates have a more significant impact on our financial statements than others.
 
Revenue recognition, Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Doubtful Accounts
 
Revenues from minibars operation and product sales derived from outsource activity under the exclusive long-term revenue sharing agreements with hotels, net of the hotel’s portion, and revenues from disposal of minibars are recognized in accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 101 "Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements" ("SAB No. 101") and SAB No. 104 when delivery has occurred, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the vendor’s fee is fixed or determinable and collectibles is probable.  Sales of minibars that are classified as refinancing arrangements are shown as a long-term loan to be repaid in accordance with terms of the agreement as required in FAS 13 "Accounting for Leases".
 
 
Our payment terms are normally net 15 days from invoicing. We evaluate our allowance for doubtful accounts on a regular basis through periodic reviews of the collectability of the receivables in light of historical experience, adverse situations that may affect our customers’ ability to repay, and prevailing economic conditions. This evaluation is inherently subjective, as it requires estimates that are susceptible to significant revision as more information becomes available. We perform ongoing credit evaluations of our customers and generally do not require collateral because (1) we believe we have certain collection measures in-place to limit the potential for significant losses, and (2) because of the nature of customers comprising our customer base. Accounts receivable are determined to be past due based on how recently payments have been received and bad debts are charged in the form of an allowance account in the period the receivables are deemed uncollectible. Receivables are written off when we abandon our collection efforts. To date, we have not experienced any material losses. An allowance for doubtful accounts is provided with respect to those amounts that we have determined to be doubtful of collection. No allowance was deemed necessary as of December 31, 2009 and 2008.
 
Long-Lived Assets
 
We assess the recoverability of the carrying value of long-lived assets periodically. If circumstances suggest that long-lived assets may be impaired, and a review indicates that the carrying value will not be recoverable, as determined based on the projected undiscounted future cash flow, the carrying value is reduced to its estimated fair value. The determination of cash flow is based upon assumptions and forecasts that may not occur. As of December 31, 2009 the Company’s balance sheet includes $5,596,000 of fixed assets, net. The Company has completed its impairment test for 2009 and has concluded that no impairment write-off is necessary.
 
Financial statements in US dollars:  The majority of the Company's sales are in U.S. dollars or in dollar linked currencies. In addition, the majority of the Company's financing is received in U.S. dollars. Accordingly, the Company has determined the U.S. dollar as the currency of its primary economic environment and thus, its functional and reporting currency. Non-dollar transactions and balances have been remeasured into U.S. dollars in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standard No. 52 "Foreign Currency Translation" ("SFAS No. 52"). All transaction gains and losses from the remeasurement of monetary balance sheet items denominated in non-dollar currencies are reflected in the statements of operations as financial income or expenses, as appropriate.
 
The financial statements of foreign subsidiaries, whose functional currency is not the U.S. dollar, have been translated into US dollars. All balance sheet accounts have been translated using the exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date. Statements of operations amounts have been translated using the average exchange rate for the period. The resulting translation adjustments are not included in determining net loss but are reported in a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in shareholders’ equity.

Overview
 
Hotel Outsource Management International, Inc. is a multi-national service provider in the hospitality industry, supplying a range of services in relation to computerized minibars that are primarily intended for in-room refreshments. In addition, we begun to manufacture and install our own proprietary computerized minibar, the HOMI® 336/330, which is the first in a new range of products currently under development. The HOMI® 336/330 is the first product to be designed and manufactured by HOMI.
 
HOMI is a holding Company for several subsidiaries which market and operate computerized minibars in hotels located in the United States, Europe, Australia and Israel. HOMI was incorporated in Delaware on November 9, 2000 under the name Benjamin Acquisitions, Inc.
 
 
Our core activities focus primarily on manufacturing, operating, servicing and marketing computerized minibars installed in upscale hotels throughout the world.
 
We believe that by using the appropriate equipment, including technologically advanced computerized minibars, we are able to materially improve the performance of the minibar departments, thereby improving the hotel’s bottom line.
 
For some years now, the hotel industry has been focusing on outsourcing many of the functions related to its key activities, in order to increase efficiency and lower fixed costs. In periods of economic slow-down, the interest in outsourcing solution may actually increase. We offer our customers a number of solutions that are designed to meet this need, in relation to the minibar departments, ranging from consultation and supervision services, all the way to full outsource installation and operation arrangements.
 
Whether we are consulting to the hotel, or managing the entire minibar department, we focus on hands-on, expert and dedicated management, on-site supervision, and disciplined implementation of specialized procedures which we have developed, in order to achieve our goals and improve the department’s performance.
Using these methods, we already manage many thousands of minibars for our customers, who are spread over four continents around the world.
 
We have been doing business since 1997 through various subsidiaries. The current corporate structure, in which we are a holding Company for various subsidiaries around the world, has been in place since 2001. Our common stock has been listed on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board, or "OTC Bulletin Board" since February 2004 under the symbol "HOUM.OB."
 
Costs and Expenses
 
Costs and expenses incurred in our outsource operations are generally as follows, but can vary depending on the circumstances and the nature and terms of specific agreements with customers:
 
 
(1)
The purchase of the minibars system to be installed in hotels; this capital expense is charged to property and equipment and depreciated over a period of ten years;
 
 
(2)
The purchase of the consumables to be placed in the minibars; we purchase these products from various vendors; sometimes the customer will purchase the alcoholic beverages to be placed in the minibars and we reimburse the customer for such purchases;
 
 
(3)
Labor costs of the minibar attendants;
 
 
(4)
General and Administrative, and marketing expenses;
 
 
(5)
Maintenance of the minibar systems;
 
 
(6)
Finance expenses.
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR HOMI
YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2009 COMPARED TO YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2008.
 
Revenues
 
For the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2009, HOMI had revenues of $3,700,000 and $ 3,651,000 respectively, a decrease of $ 49,000 or 1%. These revenues come mainly from the sale of products in the minibars. According to our agreements with hotels in which we conduct our outsource programs, the hotels, which collect the revenues generated from our minibars, deduct their portion of the revenues before distributing the remainder to us. The decrease in revenues is mainly a result of a decrease in occupancy rates in the hotels in which we operate due to the global economic crisis.  In the third quarter there was an improvement in the occupancy rate, but it did not fully compensate for the results of the year.
 
14

 
Further, as a result of HOMI's selling its interest in HOMI South Africa Pty (“HOMI SA”) in January 2009, HOMI SA is no longer affiliated with HOMI, and HOMI no longer provides outsourcing services to the hotels in South Africa to which it previously provided services. Revenue for 2008, includes revenues from such hotels in South Africa, while revenue for 2009 does not.
 
For the year ended December 31, 2009, our three largest customers accounted for 25.6% of our total revenues, as compared to 30.3% in 2008.
 
As of December 31, 2009 and 2008, HOMI, through its operating subsidiaries had outsource operation programs to provide and operate minibars as follows:

Gross Profit
 
Gross profit decreased from $1,341,000 to $ 815,000, a decrease of $ 526,000 or by 39.2% for the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2009, respectively. Such decrease is in correlation to the decrease in revenues.  As a percentage of revenues, gross profit decreased from 36.2% to 22.3%.  The decrease in gross profit margin is mainly due to the fact that the cost of revenues already includes the cost associated with the operation of the newly installed  HOMI® 336 and HOMI® 330 minibars, whereas such minibars have not yet reached their expected revenue potential.
 
Cost of Revenues
 
Cost of Revenues, before consideration of depreciation expense, for the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2009 were $1,760,000 and $2,062,000 respectively, an increase of $302,000 or 17.2%. As a percentage of gross revenues, costs of revenues increased from 47.6% in 2008 to 56.5% in 2009.
 
This increase in cost of revenues is mainly due to the fact that the cost of revenues for the year ended December 31, 2009 includes the costs associated with the increase in new installations and the beginning of operations of the newly installed  HOMI® 336 and HOMI® 330 minibars.
 
Depreciation expense for the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2009 was $599,000 and $774,000, respectively, an increase of $ 175, 0000, or 29.2%. The increase in depreciation expense is mostly due to the fact that during 2009 we began to depreciate the HOMI® 336 and HOMI® 330 minibars that were installed.
 
Research and Development
 
During 2006, HOMI commenced its own research and development program aimed at the development of a new range of products. The  HOMI® 336, a novel, computerized minibar system designed to increase the accuracy of automatic billing, is the first of the new range of products, the research and development of which, was completed in 2007. The research and development of an additional product, HOMI® 330, was completed in the first quarter of 2009.  In the second, third and fourth quarters of 2009 we incurred additional expenses to improve the production and functionality of the minibars. Total research and development expenses for the year ended December 31, 2008 were $180,000 and $116,000 for the year ended December 31, 2009.
 
 
Operating Expenses
 
General and administrative expenses decreased slightly from $ 1,987,000 to $11,983,000, a decrease of $ 4,000, or 0.2% for the years ended December 2008 and 2009. As a percentage of revenues, general and administrative expenses increased from 53.7% to 54.3%.
 
This is due to several factors. In addition to providing outsourcing services to hotels, HOMI has begun to manufacture its own computerized minibars. HOMI increased its management and technical support platforms in order to support those changes. Also, in view of preparations to increase HOMI’s business from the end of 2008 onward, we made some changes in management and appointed Daniel Cohen as President. In addition we also added a vice president of operations in one of our European subsidiaries, as well as a logistics manager. We rented office space for our financial department and logistic department.
 
15

 
Selling and Marketing expenses decreased from $460,000 to $ 261,000, a decrease $ 199,000, or 43.3%, primarily as a result of the reduction of marketing efforts in favor of focusing on the new installations related to the HOMI® 336 and HOMI® 330 systems already signed, as well as  enhancing the necessary operating platforms.
 
Financial Income (Expenses)
 
For the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2009, we had $ 680,000 in expenses and $72,000 of interest and financial income, respectively, an increase in income of $752,000. These amounts include interest expense (net) of approximately $138,000 and $160,000, respectively. The remaining amounts are due primarily to currency rates change on US$ dominated intercompany balances.
 
Other Income (Expenses)
 
For the year ended December 31, 2008 we had other income of $6,000, and for the year ended December 31, 2009, we had other expenses of $ 105,000. The income in 2008 is mainly due to income from a transaction with subsidiary's minority. The income in 2009 is due to$ 57,000 loss from selling the South Africa entity and $38,000 onetime expense for closing partial of the activity in Germany.
 
Net Income (Loss)
 
As a result of the above, we finished 2009 with a net loss of $1,561,000 compared to a net loss of $1,974,000 in 2008, including onetime expenses in the amount of $105,000. When excluding such onetime gains, we finished 2009 with a net loss of $1,456,000.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Since our inception, we have been dependent on investment capital as our primary source of liquidity. We had an accumulated deficit at December 31, 2008 of $4,250,000and $ 5,811,000 as of December 31, 2009. During the year ended December 31, 2008, we incurred a net loss of $1,974,000. During the year ended December 31, 2009, we incurred a net loss of $ 1,561,000.
 
Investing and operating activities have historically been funded through our financing activities, which provided cash of approximately $717,000 in the year 2008.  In 2009 HOMI used $ 634,000. In 2006 HOMI raised $118,000 through the issuance of convertible notes. These notes accrue interest at a rate of 8% per annum, with the interest payable each quarter commencing 2007. Principal is repaid in eight equal quarterly installments commencing December 2008. These notes may be converted at a conversion price ranging between $0.50 and $0.80 on dates as defined in the agreement. During the year ended December 31, 2007, HOMI raised an additional $376,000 of these notes.  As of December 31, 2009 there were $ 259,700 in notes outstanding
 
On December 31, 2009 HOMI had long term debt of $ 1,440,000, including, $ 439,000 in current maturities, and $5,000 in short-term bank credit.

(“HOMI Industries”) to HOMI, net of any assets or liabilities, for $1.00, with the result that HOMI Industries became a direct wholly owned subsidiary of HOMI. HOMI then entered into an agreement with HOMI Industries, pursuant to which HOMI sold all of its technology, know-how and patent rights, to HOMI Industries, and granted HOMI Industries an exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license under the “HOMI” trademark, for $1,913,000.  Both of these agreements, dated June 30, 2009, take effect retroactively as of January 1, 2009.  As a result of the change of the ownership, HOMI Israel had a capital loss of $16,000 that is recorded in other expenses.
 
On July 20, 2009, HOMI Israel Ltd., which is a wholly owned subsidiary of HOMI, entered into an agreement with Globetrip Ltd., a company of which Daniel Cohen, HOMI’s President, owns 45.45%.  Pursuant to this agreement, HOMI Israel sold 470 HOMI® 336 minibars installed at the Dan Panorama Hotel in Tel Aviv to Globetrip Ltd. at a price of $450 per minibar, for a total of $211,450.  The minibars will remain in place at the hotel and HOMI Israel shall continue to operate and maintain these minibars in accordance with its existing outsource operation agreement with the Dan Panorama Hotel, the only difference being that instead of HOMI Israel having title to the minibars, title to the minibars now rests with Globetrip Ltd.
 
HOMI Israel shall continue to invoice the Dan Panorama Hotel for the full amount of the net revenues from its outsource operation (“Net Revenues”).  From this amount, HOMI Israel shall receive (a) the cost of goods to be sold in the minibars; (b) labor costs; (c) a maintenance fee of $0.06 per minibar per day; (d) a management fee of 8% of Net Revenues (collectively, “Operational Payments”).  As long as Net Revenues less Operational Payments (“Operating Cashflow”) exceed $17,625 for a particular quarter, such Operating Cashflow shall be divided between HOMI Israel (40%) and Globetrip Ltd. (60%); however, if the quarterly Operating Cashflow is less than $10,575, Globetrip shall be entitled to 100% of the Operating Cashflow.  If the Operating Cashflow for the quarter is between $10,575 and $17,625, Globetrip shall receive $10,575 and HOMI Israel shall receive the balance.  Until such time as the aggregate payments to Globetrip Ltd under the agreement shall total $211,450, division of Operating Cashflow shall be reconciled on an annual basis at the end of each fiscal year.
 
If during the first 8 years of the agreement the Dan Panorama Hotel terminates its outsourcing agreement with HOMI Israel and the minibar system is removed from the hotel, HOMI Israel will, at its own cost, reinstall the minibar system in another hotel with similar revenue earning capacity as the Dan Panorama Hotel within six months.  In the event HOMI Israel does not place the minibar system in another similar hotel within six months of termination of its outsource agreement, HOMI Israel shall transfer title in a similar minibar system owned by HOMI Israel to Globetrip Ltd., instead of the initial minibar system, and the principles of the agreement between HOMI Israel and Globetrip Ltd will apply to the replacement minibar system.
 
At December 31, 2009, the Company had $ 252,000 in cash, including short term deposits.  The Company continues to incur losses ($ 1,561,000 in 2009) and has a negative cashflow from operations amounting to approximately $ 634,000 in 2009.  In order to implement the Company's basic business plan for completion of the installation of additional minibars, the Company will need to raise an additional $1,000,000 in 2010, of which $ 540,000 has already been raised as of the date these Financial Statements are signed. The Company is advancing various alternative methods to raise the additional funds. The Company's preferred method is to sell already installed minibar systems and continue to operate them, according to the new business model already implemented by Company in past transactions. If necessary, the Company will engage in another rights offering, as and when and on such terms as the Board of Directors may so resolve.  Management believes $ 1,000,000 mentioned above and the continued efforts to reduce corporate expenses will provide sufficient cash for the ongoing operations of the company for the next twelve months.
 
Subsequent Events
 
On January 28 2010, HOMI entered into two loan agreements with related parties.  Pursuant to one loan agreement, Bahry Business & Finance (1994) Ltd, which is a company owned by HOMI’s Chairman, Mr. Avraham Bahry, loaned HOMI 1,125,000 New Israeli Shekels (c. $300,000). The loan is for a period of four years, with quarterly repayments and including two years’ grace on the principal. During the grace period, the lender is entitled to convert the loan into shares of HOMI’s common stock, at a price per share of $0.08 during the first year and $0.12 during the second year. The loan is index linked to Israel’s Consumer Price Index and bears interest at a rate of 6% per annum.
 
17

 
Pursuant to a second loan agreement, HOMI’s President, Mr. Daniel Cohen, loaned HOMI $100,000. The loan is for a period of four years, with quarterly repayments and including two years’ grace on the principal. During the grace period, the lender is entitled to convert the loan into shares of HOMI’s common stock, at a price per share of $0.08 during the first year and $0.12 during the second year. The loan bears interest at a rate of 8% per annum.
 
On February 18, 2010, HOMI Industries Ltd (“HOMI Industries”), which is a wholly owned subsidiary of HOMI, entered into a loan agreement with Ilan Bahry, Amir Schechtman and Oded Yeoshoua (collectively, “Lender”) pursuant to which Lender loaned HOMI Industries $140,000 for an installation of minibars in the U.S.
 
Pursuant to this agreement, HOMI INDUSTRIES will make monthly payments to Lender towards repayment of the Loan. These payments will not be in a fixed amount, but will be based on the revenues from an outsource operation HOMI USA, Inc., (“HOMI USA”) has in the Fashion 26 Wyndham Hotel in New York City.
 
HOMI USA shall invoice the Fashion 26 Wyndham Hotel for the full amount of the net revenues from the outsource operation (“Net Revenues”).  From the sum equal to the Net Revenues, HOMI Industries will deduct (a) the cost of goods to be sold in the minibars; (b) labor costs; (c) a maintenance fee of $0.06 per minibar per day; and (d) a management fee of 8% of Net Revenues (collectively, “Operational Payments”).
 
Until completion of the first 8 years of this loan agreement , on a monthly basis, if Net Revenues, as collected by HOMI USA , exceed Operational Payments by at least $3,500, then the amount of the monthly repayment which HOMI Industries will pay to Lender shall be equal to 60% of all such excess; if Net Revenues from the hotel, as collected by HOMI USA, exceed Operational Payments by more $2,100 but less than $3,500, then the amount of the monthly repayment which HOMI Industries will pay to Lender shall be exactly $2,100.  If Net Revenues from the hotel exceed Operational Payments by less than $2,100, then the amount of the monthly repayment which HOMI Industries will pay to Lender shall be a sum equal to 100% of all such excess; and if Net Revenues from the hotel, as collected by HOMI USA, do not exceed Operational Payments, then no Monthly Repayment will be made to Lender for that month.
 
After eight years, each monthly payment will be in an amount equal to 60% of the sum, if any, by which Net Revenues, as collected by HOMI USA, exceeded Operational Payments, for that month.
 
Off Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
HOMI has no significant off balance sheet arrangements.
 
Inflation
 
We do not believe that inflation has had a significant impact on our consolidated results of operations or financial condition.
 
International Tax Implications
 
Taxable income of Israeli companies is subject to tax at the rate of, 27% in 2008, 26% in 2009 and gradually will be reduced to16% in 2016 and thereafter. The South African subsidiary is subject to a 29% corporate tax rate. HOMI’s United States subsidiary is subject to a 15% -35% corporate tax rate. Subsidiaries in Europe are subject to 35% - 45% corporate tax rate (in Germany, corporate and business tax calculation is based on company’s EBITDA).The Australia subsidiary is subject to 30% corporate tax rate.
 
As of December 31, 2009 HOMI Inc. had approximately $414,000 net operating loss carryforwards
 
As of December 31, 2009 HOMI Israel Ltd., a subsidiary in Israel, had approximately $664,000 net operating loss carry forwards. The loss carryforwards in Israel have no expiration date.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
 
 
To the Stockholders and Directors of Hotel Outsource Management International, Inc. and subsidiaries:
 
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Hotel Outsource Management International, Inc. and subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2009 and 2008 and the related consolidated statements of operations, changes in shareholders’ equity and cash flows for the years then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management.  Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.
 
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States of America). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement.  The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting.  Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.  Accordingly, we express no such opinion.  An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements.  An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall consolidated financial statements presentation.  We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2009 and 2008, and the consolidated results of its operations, changes in shareholders' equity and cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Hotel Outsource Management International, Inc. ("HOMI") was incorporated in Delaware on November 9, 2000. HOMI and its subsidiaries, as identified in Note 2c below, are engaged in the distribution, marketing and operation of computerized minibars in hotels located in the United States, Europe, Israel, Australia and Canada.
 
Hereinafter, HOMI and its subsidiaries will be referred to as the "Company".
 
HOMI's common stock has been listed on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board since February 2004 under the symbol "HOUM.OB."
 
b.  
During 2006, the Company commenced its own research and development program aimed at the development of a new range of products. The HOMI® 336 (the system), a novel, computerized minibar system designed to increase the accuracy of the automatic billing and reduce the cost of operating the minibars. Further, the HOMI® 330 system, a smaller version of the HOMI® 336, is currently in production. During 2009, 2,018 minibars were installed and commenced commercial operation.
 
c.  
HOMI has recently begun to implement a new business model.  Under the new business model, the Company will sell HOMI minibars, to be installed in various hotels to third parties. HOMI shall manage and operate these minibars for an agreed upon management fee and profit sharing agreement. For accounting treatment of these transactions see Note 2j.
 
d.  
On February 10, 2009, Remstone Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of HOMI Israel Ltd., which is a wholly owned subsidiary of HOMI, sold its interest in HOMI's South African subsidiary to CLevo Corporation S.A., a Panama corporation. The purchase price was agreed on a "no cash no debt" basis. Total cash received amounted to $195. The transaction was effective as of January, 2009. As a result, HOMI South Africa changed its name, and ceased to be a subsidiary or affiliate of HOMI.
As a result of the abovementioned, HOMI had a loss, net of $57 that is recorded in other expenses.
 
e.  
On June 30, 2009, HOMI entered into a series of arrangements:
HOMI Israel Ltd. (HOMI Israel) sold its entire interest in HOMI Industries Ltd. (formerly known as HOMI (Operation 99) Ltd.) (“HOMI Industries”) to HOMI, net of any assets or liabilities, for $1.00, with the result that HOMI Industries became a direct wholly owned subsidiary of HOMI.
HOMI then entered into an agreement with HOMI Industries, pursuant to which HOMI sold all of its technology, know-how and patent rights, to HOMI Industries, and granted HOMI Industries an exclusive, royalty-free, worldwide license under the “HOMI” trademark, for $1,913.  Both of these agreements, dated June 30, 2009, take effect retroactively as of January 1, 2009.
As a result of the change of the ownership, HOMI Israel had a capital loss of $16 that is recorded in other expenses.
 
f.  
At December 31, 2009, the Company had $ 252 in cash, including short term deposits.
The Company continues to incur losses ($ 1,561in 2009) and has a negative cashflow from operations amounting to approximately $ 634 in 2009. In order to implement the Company's basic business plan for completion of the installation of additional minibars, the Company will need to raise a further $ 1,000 in 2010, of which $ 540 has already been raised as of the date these Financial Statements are signed.

NOTE 1:-                 GENERAL (cont.)
 
The Company is advancing various alternative methods to raise the additional funds. The Company's preferred method is to sell already installed minibar systems and continue to operate them, according to the new business model already implemented by Company in past transactions.
If necessary, the Company will perform another Rights Offering, as and when and on such terms as the Board of Directors may so resolve.
Management believes $ 1,000 mentioned above and the continued efforts to reduce corporate expenses will provide sufficient cash for the ongoing operations of the company for the next twelve months.
 
NOTE 2:-                 SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States ("US GAAP").
 
 
a.
Use of estimates:
 
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 amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. The reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period may be affected by the estimates and assumptions management is required to make.  Estimates that are critical to the accompanying consolidated financial statements relate principally to depreciation and recoverability of long lived assets.  The markets for the Company’s products are characterized by intense price competition, rapid technological development, evolving standards and short product life cycles; all of which could impact the future realization of its assets. Estimates and assumptions are reviewed periodically and the effects of revisions are reflected in the period that they are determined to be necessary.  It is at least reasonably possible that management’s estimates could change in the near term with respect to these matters.

b.
Financial statements in U.S. dollars:
 
The majority of the Company's sales are in U.S. dollars or in dollar linked currencies. In addition, the majority of the Company's financing is received in U.S. dollars. Accordingly, the Company has determined the U.S. dollar as the currency of its primary economic environment and thus, its functional and reporting currency. Non-dollar transactions and balances have been remeasured into US dollars in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standard No. 52 "Foreign Currency Translation" ("SFAS No. 52"). All transaction gains and losses from the re-measurement of monetary balance sheet items denominated in non-dollar currencies are reflected in the statements of operations as financial income or expenses, as appropriate.
 
The financial statements of foreign subsidiaries, whose functional currency is not the U.S. dollar, have been translated into U.S. dollars in accordance with FAS No. 52. All balance sheet accounts have been translated using the exchange rates in effect at the balance sheet date. Statements of operations amounts have been translated using the average exchange rate for the period. The resulting translation adjustments are not included in determining net loss but are reported as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in shareholders’ equity.

Contract rights for operating minibars in a hotel in South Africa were amortized using the straight-line method over the contract periods with the hotels - ten years. The rights were completely amortized since the Company ceased its operations with the hotel and new goodwill was subsequently created from acquisition of a minority in South Africa. The goodwill was completely amortized following the sale of interest in HOMI's South African subsidiary.
 
 
1.2
Trademarks registered in several countries worldwide are capitalized and will be amortized over the life span of the asset (twenty years).
 
 
2.  Deferred expenses represent loan acquisition costs arising from the other long-term loan originated in 2005 and convertible notes payable issued in 2007 and 2006 (see Notes 7 and 8a (1)).
 
 
 
i.
Impairment of long-lived assets:
 
The Company's long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles are reviewed for impairment in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standard No. 144 "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets" ("SFAS No. 144") 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 the future undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by the assets. 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. As of December 31, 2008, management believes that all of the Company’s long-lived assets are recoverable.

Revenue Recognition, Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Doubtful Accounts:
 
Revenues from minibars operation and product sales derived from outsource activity (minibar's content), under the exclusive long-term revenue sharing agreements with hotels, net of the hotel’s portion and/or other participation of, or payments due from the hotel, and revenues from disposal of minibars are recognized in accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 101 "Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements" ("SAB No. 101") and SAB No. 104 when delivery has occurred, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the vendor’s fee is fixed or determinable and collectability is probable.
 
Revenues from sales of minibars are recognized in accordance with compliance with the conditions designated in SAB No. 104, as abovementioned.
 
Sales of minibars that are classified as refinancing arrangements are shown as a long-term loan to be repaid in accordance with terms of the agreement as required in FAS 13 "Accounting for Leases".
 
 The Company’s payment terms are normally net 15 to 30 days from invoicing. The Company evaluates its allowance for doubtful accounts on a regular basis through periodic reviews of the collectability of the receivables in light of historical experience, adverse situations that may affect its customers’ ability to repay, and prevailing economic conditions.  This evaluation is inherently subjective, as it requires estimates that are susceptible to significant revision as more information becomes available. The Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers and generally does not require collateral because (1) management believes it has certain collection measures in-place to limit the potential for significant losses, and (2) because of the nature of customers comprising the Company’s customer base. Accounts receivable are determined to be past due based on how recently payments have been received and bad debts are charged in the form of an allowance account in the period the receivables are deemed uncollectible.  Receivables are written off when the Company abandons its collection efforts. To date, the Company has not experienced any material losses. An allowance for doubtful accounts is provided with respect to those amounts that the Company has determined to be doubtful of collection. No allowance was deemed necessary as of December 31, 2009 and 2008.

k.
Investments in affiliates:
 
The investment in companies over which the Company can exercise significant influence (generally, entities in which the Company holds 20% to 50% of ownership or voting rights) is presented using the equity method of accounting. The Company generally discontinues applying the equity method when its investment (including advances and loans) is reduced to zero and it has not guaranteed obligations of the affiliate or otherwise committed to provide further financial support to the affiliate. Where the Company’s share of an affiliate’s losses is greater than the investment in such an affiliate and in which the Company has guaranteed obligations of the affiliate, the excess amount is presented as a liability.
 
 
l.
Research and Development costs:
 
Research and Development costs are charged to the statement of operations as incurred.
 
Costs and acquisitions related to pre-production, production support, tools and molds, are charged to fixed assets.
 
 
m.
Accounting for stock based compensation:
 
Through December 31, 2005, the Company used Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 148 “Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation – Transition and Disclosure” (SFAS No. 148) to account for its stock based compensation arrangements. This Statement amended the disclosure provision of FASB Statement No. 123 to require prominent disclosure about the effects on reported net income of an entity’s accounting policy decisions with respect to stock-based employee compensation. As permitted by SFAS No. 123 and amended by SFAS No. 148, the Company continued to apply the intrinsic value method under Accounting Principles Board (“APB”) Opinion No. 25, “Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees,” to account for its stock-based employee compensation arrangements.
 
The Company uses Financial Accounting Standards Board Statement Number 123 (“FAS 123 (R)”), “Share-Based Payments,” to recognize compensation expense in an amount equal to the fair value of share-based payments such as stock options granted to employees. Since the Company does not have any share based arrangements, the adoption of this Statement has not affected the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
The Company accounts for stock-based compensation issued to non-employees and consultants in accordance with the provision of SFAS 123 and the Emerging Issues Task Force consensus in Issue No. 96-18 (“EITF 96-18”), “Accounting for Equity Instruments that are Issued to Other Than Employees for Acquiring or in Conjunction with Selling, Goods or Services.”

  n. 
    Income taxes:
 
The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 109, "Accounting for Income Taxes" ("SFAS No. 109"). This Statement prescribes the use of the liability method whereby deferred tax assets and liability account balances are determined based on differences between financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. The Company provides a valuation allowance, if necessary to reduce the amount of deferred tax assets to their estimated realizable value.
 
 
o.
Concentrations of credit risk:
 
Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist primarily of cash and cash equivalents and trade receivables. The majority of the Company's cash and cash equivalents are invested in interest bearing dollar and dollar-linked instruments or in NIS, South African Rand and Euro deposits bearing interest with major Israeli, U.S.A., European and South African banks. Such deposits in the United States may be in excess of insured limits and are not insured in other jurisdictions. Management believes that the financial institutions that hold the Company's investments are financially sound, and accordingly, minimal credit risk exists with respect to these investments.
 
The Company has no off-balance sheet concentration of credit risk, such as foreign exchange contracts or other foreign currency hedging arrangements.
 
 
p.
Severance pay:
 
The Company's liability for severance pay is calculated pursuant to the local law applicable in certain countries where the Company operates.
 
  q.   
Concentrations of Credit Risk and Fair Value of Financial Instruments:
 
The financial instruments of the Company consist mainly of cash and cash equivalents, short-term bank deposits, trade receivables, other accounts receivable, short-term bank credit, trade payables, other accounts payable and notes payable to shareholders and others.
 
In view of their short term nature, the fair value of the financial instruments included in working capital of the Company is usually identical, or close, to their carrying values. The fair values of long-term notes payable also approximates their carrying values, since such notes bear interest at rates that management believes is approximately the same as prevailing market rates.

Such deposits in the United States may be in excess of insured limits and are not insured in other jurisdictions. Management believes that, minimal credit risk exists with respect to these investments. Trade receivable potentially expose the company to credit risk. The company monitors the amount of credit it allows  each of its customers' using the customers prior payment history to determine how much credit it will aloe or whether any credit should be given at all. As a result of its monitoring of the outstanding credit allowed for each customer, as well as the fact that the majority of the company's sales are to customers whose satisfactory credit and payment record has been established over a long period of time, the company believes that its account receivable credit risk has been reduced. However the company acknowledges that as of the date these financial statements the poor economic climate globally, has increased the chances of customers and financial institutions defaulting on their obligations.
 
  r.    
Basic and Diluted Net Income (Loss) per Share:
 
Basic net profit (loss) per share is computed based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during each year. Diluted loss per share is computed based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during each year, plus dilutive potential common shares considered outstanding during the year, in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 128, "Earnings per Share" ("SFAS No. 128").  There were no dilutive common equivalent shares outstanding at anytime during the year ended December 31, 2009 and 2008; accordingly basic and diluted net income (loss) per share are identical for both years.

Implementation of new accounting Standards:
 
FASB issued SFAS No. 168 -Codification
 
In June 2009, the FASB Accounting Standards Codification and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles  a replacement of FAS No. 162, as codified in FASB ASC topic 105, Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“ASC 105”). ASC 105 establishes that the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“Codification”) will become the authoritative source of U.S. GAAP and that rules and interpretive releases of the SEC will also be sources of authoritative GAAP for SEC registrants. Following ASC 105, the FASB will not issue new standards in the form of Statements, FASB Staff Positions or Emerging Issues Task Force Abstracts. Instead, it will issue Accounting Standards Updates.
 
Effective September 30, 2009, the Company adopted ASC Subtopic 855-10 (SFAS No. 165, Subsequent Events), which establishes general standards of accounting for and disclosure of events that occur after the balance sheet date but before the financial statements are issued or are available to be issued.  ASC Subtopic 855-10 sets forth the period after the balance sheet date during which management should evaluate events or transactions that may occur for potential recognition or disclosure in the financial statements, the circumstances under which an entity should recognize events or transactions occurring after the balance sheet date in its financial statements, and the disclosures that an entity should make about events or transactions that occurred after the balance sheet date.  The Company adopted ASC Subtopic 855-10 as required; adoption did not have an effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 2:-                 SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (cont.)
 
In October 2009, the FASB issued ASC Subtopic 605-25, Revenue Recognition – Multiple-Element Arrangements, an amendment to the accounting standards related to the accounting for revenue in arrangements with multiple deliverables including how the arrangement consideration is allocated among delivered and undelivered items of the arrangement. Among the amendments, this standard eliminates the use of the residual method for allocating arrangement consideration and requires an entity to allocate the overall consideration to each deliverable based on an estimated selling price of each individual deliverable in the arrangement in the absence of having vendor-specific objective evidence or other third party evidence of fair value of the undelivered items. This standard also provides further guidance on how to determine a separate unit of accounting in a multiple-deliverable revenue arrangement and expands the disclosure requirements about the judgments made in applying the estimated selling price method and how those judgments affect the timing or amount of revenue recognition. This standard is effective prospectively for revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified in fiscal years beginning on or after June 15, 2010.  The Company is currently evaluating the impact of ASC Subtopic 605-25 on its financial statements; however, management does not believe that it will have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
In August 2009, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2009-05, which amends ASC Topic 820, Measuring Liabilities at Fair Value, which provides additional guidance on the measurement of liabilities at fair value. These amended standards clarify that in circumstances in which a quoted price in an active market for the identical liability is not available, we are required to use the quoted price of the identical liability when traded as an asset, quoted prices for similar liabilities, or quoted prices for similar liabilities when traded as assets. If these quoted prices are not available, we are required to use another valuation technique, such as an income approach or a market approach. These amended standards are effective for us beginning in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009. There was no material impact upon the adoption of this standard on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
In January 2010, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2010-06 (ASU 2010-06), Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures which amends ASC Topic 820, adding new requirements for disclosures for Levels 1 and 2, separate disclosures of purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements relating to Level 3 measurements and clarification of existing fair value disclosures.  ASU 2010-06 is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2009, except for the requirement to provide Level 3 activity of purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements on a gross basis, which will be effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2010 (the Company’s fiscal year 2012); early adoption is permitted.  The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting ASU 2009-14 on its financial statements; however, management does not believe that it will have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 10:-                      COMMITMENTS, CONTINGENT LIABILITIES AND LIENS
 
 
a.
HOMI and its affiliates have contractual obligations towards hotels with regard to the operation of minibars in hotel rooms.
 
HOMI and its affiliates own most of these minibars. Several hotels have a contractual purchase option granted which enables them to purchase the minibars at a price which results in a profit for the Company, and the agreement with the hotel is then terminated. To date, no hotel has exercised such an option.
 
  b.   
On December 8, 2009, HOMI Israel Ltd. was served with a lawsuit filed by a former employee with the Regional Labor Court of Tel-Aviv (the “Lawsuit”). HOMI Israel Ltd. is the only defendant in the Lawsuit. The former employee was employed by HOMI Israel Ltd.  in the position of VP Operations, between June 2008 and May 2009, following which he was dismissed by HOMI Israel Ltd.  In the Lawsuit, the former employee claims to be entitled to wages and benefits over and above what he received from HOMI Israel.   The former employee's total claim is for NIS 195 thousand (approx. $53K), exclusive of interest and fines for payment in arrears. In this Lawsuit, HOMI Israel Ltd. is being represented by its attorney.  HOMI Israel Ltd. filed a Statement of Defense on 25 January 2010.
 
       HOMI Israel's attorney has assessed the risk at 25% of the claim, or approximately NIS 50 (approx. $ 13 thousand).Concurrently  a provision for this claim has been recorded.
 
 
c.
Liens have been placed on certain Company's assets, including the rights to receivables from customers, in favor of others, as security for amounts due. Total liabilities that are secured by these liens as of December 31, 2009 and 2008 amount to approximately $ 669 and $ 782, respectively. See Note 8a (1)(a).
 
 
In addition, securities have been placed on certain minibars as detailed in note 8a(1)(b).
 
 
d.
Rent expenses
 
The Company’s operations are based primarily at hotels where its outsource operations are conducted. Most of the hotels allow the Company to utilize office space free of charge.
 
In addition, the Company’s U.S. counsel (who is also a shareholder) allows the Company to use its office as their corporate headquarters at no charge. No amounts have been reflected as rent expense in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations for the value of this rent due to its insignificance.

The Company received notice that the US Internal Revenue Service imposed on the company automated late filing penalties for delay in filing a certain information schedule on foreign holdings. The company has filed an appeal for full abatement of the penalties according to procedures of the IRS. Based on common practice and the nature of reasoning for the delay, Company advisors believe there is good reason to believe that the abatement would be approved. Accordingly, no provision was recorded on the Company books of account.
 
f.  
HOMI Industries subsequently entered into exclusive license agreements with HOMI Europe S.A.R.L.. (for the territory of Europe), HOMI USA, Inc. (for the United States and Canada) and HOMI Israel Ltd.

g.
On September 23, 2009, HOMI Industries Ltd. ("HOMI Industries") which is a wholly owned subsidiary of HOMI, entered into a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with an Israeli company engaged in the development of open-display minibars. Pursuant to the MOU, HOMI Industries shall be entitled, but not obliged, to purchase open-display minibars from the Israeli company, at a reduced purchase price. For minibars which HOMI Industries purchases from the Israeli company at those reduced rates, and then operates at hotels under outsource agreements, HOMI Industries will pay to the Israeli company 40% of the net collected revenues from such operation, after deduction of cost of goods, labor and an 8% HOMI management fee. To secure the Israeli company's rights to such payment, HOMI Industries will encumber said minibars in favor of the Israeli company, up to an amount of $175 (in dollars) per minibar. HOMI Industries shall also be entitled to act as a world-wide distributor of the Israeli company's minibars. Under certain conditions, HOMI Industries will be entitled, but not obliged, to assume the production of the minibars and acquire the Israeli company's technology relating to the minibars, in return for royalties which HOMI Industries will pay to the Israeli company in respect of each minibar so manufactured, up to a ceiling of 20,000 minibars.

ITEM 8A(T):
CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
Management is required by Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 to evaluate, with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, the effectiveness of disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. Disclosure controls and procedures refer to controls and other procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in our reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and management was required to apply its judgment in evaluating and implementing possible controls and procedures.
 
During the year ending December 31, 2009, management carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures. Such an evaluation requires the check and testing of the existence of the required controls. As of March 31, 2010, management performed the examination with regard to all of HOMI’s material subsidiaries except HOMI USA, Inc., which examination has not been completed. Because the examination of one material subsidiary has not been concluded, HOMI management is unable to conclude that HOMI's controls and procedures are effective.  As a result, management believes that its controls and procedures are not currently effective.  HOMI will continue to test the effectiveness of controls in its remaining material subsidiary, and expects that such examination will be complete by the end of June 2010. 
 
Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
 
Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. Internal control over financial reporting refers to a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer and effected by the 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 generally accepted accounting principles, and includes those policies and procedures that:
 
·
pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets;
 
·
provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of our management and our board of directors; and
 
·
provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on our financial statements.
 
Internal control over financial reporting cannot provide absolute assurance of achieving financial reporting objectives because of its inherent limitations. Internal control over financial reporting is a process that involves human diligence, compliance and is subject to lapses in judgment and breakdowns resulting from improper segregation of duties and human failures. Because of such limitations, 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.
 
Management evaluated the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2008 using the framework set forth in the report of the Treadway Commission’s Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (COSO), “Internal Control — Integrated Framework.” The Public Company Accounting Oversight Board’s Auditing Standard No. 2 defines a material weakness as a significant deficiency, or combination of significant deficiencies, that result in more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of the annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected.  As of March 31, 2010, management has examined all of HOMI’s material subsidiaries except HOMI USA, Inc. However, because the examination of one material subsidiary has not yet been completed, we are unable to conclude that all controls and procedures are effective.
 
49

 
Management is continuing to test the effectiveness of controls in the one remaining material subsidiary and believes that such examination will be finalized by the end of June 2010.
 
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
 
Management has evaluated, with the participation of the Chief Financial Officer, whether any changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during our last fiscal quarter have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting. Based on the evaluation we conducted, management has concluded that the company has made the following changes in order to increase the internal control over financial reporting:
 
(i)  
integrated updated financial software;
(ii)  
created new mechanisms for the review and approval of invoices to customers and/or from suppliers;
(iii)  
increased the frequency of sudden checks;
(iv)  
increased levels of discussions and documentation by senior financial management;
(v)  
established additional controls over financial reporting.
 
This annual report does not include an attestation report of the company's registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management's report was not subject to attestation by the company's registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit the company to provide only management's report in this annual report.

On December 8, 2008, HOMI entered into a loan agreement with related parties, Jacob Ronnel, Chief Executive Officer of HOMI and Aryeh Reif, Corporate Secretary of HOMI.

Pursuant to this loan agreement, Mr. Ronnel and Mr. Reif loaned HOMI $400,000 and $20,000, respectively, for a maximum period of four months. The loans carried interest at a rate of 6% per annum.  The entire sum of the loans and accrued interest was converted into HOMI common stock at a rate of $0.05 per share, the price that shares were offered to shareholders in HOMI's rights offering that closed on January 23, 2009.
 
On April 17, 2009, HOMI entered into a loan agreement with a related party, Daniel Cohen, President of HOMI.

On July 20, 2009, HOMI Israel Ltd., which is a wholly owned subsidiary of HOMI, entered into an agreement with Globetrip Ltd., a company of which Daniel Cohen, HOMI’s President, owns 45.45%.  Pursuant to this agreement, HOMI Israel sold 470 HOMI® 336 minibars installed at the Dan Panorama Hotel in Tel Aviv to Globetrip Ltd. at a price of $450 per minibar, for a total of $211,450.  The minibars will remain in place at the hotel and HOMI Israel shall continue to operate and maintain these minibars in accordance with its existing outsource operation agreement with the Dan Panorama Hotel, the only difference being that instead of HOMI Israel having title to the minibars, title to the minibars now rests with Globetrip Ltd.
 
HOMI Israel shall continue to invoice the Dan Panorama Hotel for the full amount of the net revenues from its outsource operation (“Net Revenues”).  From this amount, HOMI Israel shall receive (a) the cost of goods to be sold in the minibars; (b) labor costs; (c) a maintenance fee of $0.06 per minibar per day; (d) a management fee of 8% of Net Revenues (collectively, “Operational Payments”).  As long as Net Revenues less Operational Payments (“Operating Cashflow”) exceed $17,625 for a particular quarter, such Operating Cashflow shall be divided between HOMI Israel (40%) and Globetrip Ltd. (60%); however, if the quarterly Operating Cashflow is less than $10,575, Globetrip shall be entitled to 100% of the Operating Cashflow.  If the Operating Cashflow for the quarter is between $10,575 and $17,625, Globetrip shall receive $10,575 and HOMI Israel shall receive the balance.  Until such time as the aggregate payments to Globetrip Ltd under the agreement shall total $211,450, division of Operating Cashflow shall be reconciled on an annual basis at the end of each fiscal year.
 
If during the first 8 years of the agreement the Dan Panorama Hotel terminates its outsourcing agreement with HOMI Israel and the minibar system is removed from the hotel, HOMI Israel will, at its own cost, reinstall the minibar system in another hotel with similar revenue earning capacity as the Dan Panorama Hotel within six months.  In the event HOMI Israel does not place the minibar system in another similar hotel within six months of termination of its outsource agreement, HOMI Israel shall transfer title in a similar minibar system owned by HOMI Israel to Globetrip Ltd., instead of the initial minibar system, and the principles of the agreement between HOMI Israel and Globetrip Ltd will apply to the replacement minibar system.
 
On January 28 2010, HOMI entered into two loan agreements with related parties.  Pursuant to one loan agreement, Bahry Business & Finance (1994) Ltd, which is a company owned by HOMI’s Chairman, Mr. Avraham Bahry, loaned HOMI 1,125,000 New Israeli Shekels (c. $300,000). The loan is for a period of four years, with quarterly repayments and including two years’ grace on the principal. During the grace period, the lender is entitled to convert the loan into shares of HOMI’s common stock, at a price per share of $0.08 during the first year and $0.12 during the second year.

On February 18, 2010, HOMI Industries Ltd (“HOMI Industries”), which is a wholly owned subsidiary of HOMI, entered into a loan agreement with Ilan Bahry, Amir Schechtman and Oded Yeoshoua (collectively, “Lender”) pursuant to which Lender loaned HOMI Industries $140,000 for an installation of minibars in the U.S.  Ilan Bahry is the son of Avraham Bahry, the chairman of HOMI’s Board of Directors.
 
Pursuant to this agreement, HOMI INDUSTRIES will make monthly payments to Lender towards repayment of the Loan. These payments will not be in a fixed amount, but will be based on the revenues from an outsource operation HOMI USA, Inc., (“HOMI USA”) has in the Fashion 26 Wyndham Hotel in New York City.
 
HOMI USA shall invoice the Fashion 26 Wyndham Hotel for the full amount of the net revenues from the outsource operation (“Net Revenues”).  From the sum equal to the Net Revenues, HOMI Industries will deduct (a) the cost of goods to be sold in the minibars; (b) labor costs; (c) a maintenance fee of $0.06 per minibar per day; and (d) a management fee of 8% of Net Revenues (collectively, “Operational Payments”).
 
Until completion of the first 8 years of this loan agreement , on a monthly basis, if Net Revenues, as collected by HOMI USA , exceed Operational Payments by at least $3,500, then the amount of the monthly repayment which HOMI Industries will pay to Lender shall be equal to 60% of all such excess; if Net Revenues from the hotel, as collected by HOMI USA, exceed Operational Payments by more $2,100 but less than $3,500, then the amount of the monthly repayment which HOMI Industries will pay to Lender shall be exactly $2,100.  If Net Revenues from the hotel exceed Operational Payments by less than $2,100, then the amount of the monthly repayment which HOMI Industries will pay to Lender shall be a sum equal to 100% of all such excess; and if Net Revenues from the hotel, as collected by HOMI USA, do not exceed Operational Payments, then no Monthly Repayment will be made to Lender for that month.
 
After eight years, each monthly payment will be in an amount equal to 60% of the sum, if any, by which Net Revenues, as collected by HOMI USA, exceeded Operational Payments, for that month.
