ITEM 1.                 BUSINESS

General Overview

Sparta Commercial Services, Inc. ("Sparta" "we," "us," or the "Company") is a Nevada corporation. Historically, we were an independent financial services provider, offering consumer retail installment sales contracts and both consumer and commercial lease financing to the powersports industry. During the fiscal year ended April 30, 2011, we formed Specialty Reports, Inc to provide vehicle history reports and mobile cell phone (“mobile apps”) to consumers and powersports dealers.

Our offices are located at 462 Seventh Avenue, 20th Floor, New York, NY 10018, telephone number:  (212) 239-2666. We maintain a website at www.spartacommercial.com.

Our Business

We are a now diversified company specializing in providing services to the powersports industry. We operate through two divisions: Specialty Reports and Financial Services.

Specialty Reports, formed in 2010, currently has four product offerings which are divided into two groups: the mobile applications group and the vehicle history report group.

The mobile applications group is currently marketing Specialty Mobile Apps, which is a customizable modular mobile application engine  developed for powersports and automobile dealers that allows them to login to our website and build their own custom dealer mobile application “mobile app”  in no time at all. Dealers can upload images, choose colors, customize the items displayed, and create a fully branded experience. Once created, the mobile application is generated, packaged, and made available on-line to the dealer's customers through the Apple iPhone App Store and the Android App Market. Additionally, as we build new features, and support more devices, customers will also be able to take advantage of these new platforms and features as well.

The vehicle history report group is currently marketing: Cyclechex Motorcycle History Reports©, RVchecks™, RV History Reports, and CarVin Car History Reports. These reports contain extremely valuable information for consumers, dealers, insurers, auction houses, and lenders, about whether a specific pre-owned vehicle has been in an accident or crash, the number of previous owners, the last recorded odometer reading, any salvage or damaged titles, the manufacturer’s original equipment, OEM recall data, and more. For consumers looking to buy a pre-owned vehicle or a retail vehicle dealer considering a trade-in or the purchase of other used vehicle, a Cyclechex Motorcycle History Report, RVchecks RV History Report or a CarVin Car History Report can be invaluable.  For those dealers who want to provide a higher level of confidence to a potential buyer about the true condition of the vehicle being considered for purchase, these reports are an outstanding sales support tool. We assemble the data for these reports from multiple sources, including, but not limited to, governmental agencies in order to provide the most current information available for the benefit of all interested parties. With a “no-hassle,” 100% money-back guarantee, and at only a modest cost, these Specialty Reports provide buyers and sellers an incomparable guide for decision making and a comfort level that would otherwise be unavailable.

Financial Services provides consumer financing for the acquisition or leasing of new and used 550cc+ motorcycles, select scooters and utility all-terrain vehicles (ATVs). Additionally through our Municipal Division we offer, on a pass through basis, an equipment leasing product to municipalities, including, but not limited to, the leasing of police motorcycles.

We have, and continue to develop, relationships with powersports dealers and manufacturers to provide our financing products to their customers. We also seek to expand our "Private Label" versions of our financing products to motorcycle, scooter, and all-terrain vehicle manufacturers and distributors to enable their dealers to assist their customers in acquiring the powersports vehicle of their choice.
 
 
Business Overview

Specialty Reports, Inc.

In May 2010, our subsidiary, Specialty Reports, Inc., a Nevada corporation, purchased substantially all of the assets of Cyclechex LLC, a Florida limited liability company, in consideration of a 24% equity interest in Specialty Reports.  Additionally, the founder and sole owner of Cyclechex was elected as a Director and to the position of Executive Vice President-Marketing of Specialty Reports.

Cyclechex LLC, formed in 2007, was in the business of providing basic motorcycle information, obtained by inputting the vehicle’s vehicle identification number (“VIN”) on the Cyclechex web-site, and receiving information as to the vehicle’s year of manufacture, name of manufacturer and specific model. Without such information, a used motorcycle purchaser could easily confuse one model year for another which could amount to as much as a $1,000 mistake or more.

Specialty Reports has expanded on the Cyclechex product offering to include accident, crash, and title history information. All of this information is now offered on the Cyclechex web site, www.cyclechex.com, in the form of the copyrighted Cyclechex Motorcycle History Report©. Similar reports are offered on Recreational Vehicles on our web site, www.RVChecks.com. Subsequent to April 30, 2011, we introduced CarVin Report on our www.Carvinreport.com web site.

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

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

NMVTIS was created to:

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

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

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


Sparta Financial Services

The success of Sparta's Financial Services business model depends on the availability of capital, both debt and equity, with which to purchase vehicles for lease and retail installment sales contracts.  In the fall of 2008 and in 2009, our two senior lenders withdrew their credit lines due to the then financial crisis. From that time until the present, our financial services offerings have been limited due to the lack of availability of reasonably priced capital. These events did not impact on our municipal lease products.  In October 2010 we obtained, from a hedge fund, a lease warehouse facility wherein we purchase consumer leases for sale to this fund. We would provide all service and collection functions for the leases. To date, we have not utilized this facility as the terms and conditions result in unattractive lease terms to the consumer.  We are presently renegotiating the terms of this facility.

Subject to the availability of reasonably priced capital, Sparta’s financial service products have been designed to generate revenue from several sources:

·  
Retail installment sales contracts and leases;
·  
Municipal leasing of equipment;
·  
Private label programs for manufacturers and distributors;
·  
Ancillary products and services, such as private label GAP coverage; and
·  
Remarketing of repossessed vehicles and off-lease vehicles.

Sparta's management believes that by offering dealers, and their customers, the option of either financing or leasing, Sparta will capture a greater share of the dealer's business. Additionally, by offering both alternatives, once profitability is achieved, Sparta believes that it will be in a position to achieve greater cash-flow than it could by offering only one of these alternatives because depreciation generated by Sparta's leasing activities will reduce income tax due on income resulting from Sparta's retail installment sales contracts.

Retail Installment Sales Contracts and Leases

Retail Installment Sales Contracts (RISC) Sparta purchases retail installment sales contracts from both franchised and independent powersports dealers who qualify as Authorized Sparta Dealers and/or as Authorized Private Label Dealers under Sparta's Private Label Programs. Sparta has developed policies and procedures for credit evaluation, collections, insurance follow up, and asset recovery.  Sparta imposes strict credit criteria to determine which retail installment sales contract applications to approve.  This credit criterion has been developed to be in compliance with the credit criterion required by our lenders.  The dealers understand that if they consummate a credit transaction with a customer on whose application we have given them a conditional approval that Sparta will purchase that contract if it is in full compliance with all terms and conditions of that approval and contained in our dealer agreement.

To insure that Sparta's Credit Evaluation Process and Collateral Guidelines are consistently applied and that the credit/underwriting decisioning process provides rapid decisions to our Authorized Sparta Dealers and the Authorized Private Label Dealers, Sparta has developed a point of sale credit application and contract decisioning web based platform.  This system is named "iPLUSÒ" and is structured as an Application Service Provider ("ASP") and has the capability of providing the dealer with conditional approvals in less than sixty seconds, seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day.  This technology provides quick, consistent credit decisions for our dealer network and reduces the number of credit analysts required, thereby, reducing Sparta's personnel expense. Depending on Sparta's arrangement with its lending sources, in the case of consumer finance contracts, Sparta may finance its purchase of the contracts by borrowing from a lending source and pledging the retail installment sales contracts as collateral for the loan.
 
 
All of the retail installment sales contracts will be secured by qualified, titled motorcycles with 550+cc and higher engines, 4-stroke all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), or select scooters.  Customer financing needs are projected to range from approximately $5,000 to $40,000. Contract terms of 24 to 60 months are offered.

Leases – Sparta purchases qualified vehicles for lease to customers of its Authorized Sparta Dealers and/or Authorized Private Label Dealers.  While the steps in the leasing process are almost identical to those in the retail installment sales contract process, the major difference is that when a lease "approval" is transmitted to a dealer, the "approval" describes the terms and conditions under which Sparta will purchase a specific vehicle from the dealer and lease it to the applicant. Unlike a retail installment sales contract which finances a customer's purchase of a vehicle owned by the customer, the lease agreement contains the payment terms and conditions under which Sparta will allow the customer to use (lease) the vehicle, which is owned by Sparta, and also contains a vehicle purchase price option which provides the customer with the right to purchase the vehicle at the lease-end. Depending on Sparta's arrangement with its lending sources, in the case of leases, Sparta may finance its purchase of leased vehicles by borrowing from a lending source and assigning or pledging the lease and leased vehicle as collateral for the loan. Lease terms range from 24 to 60 months, although most lease terms are either 36 or 60 months.  Leases generally have lower monthly payments than similar retail installment sales contracts because a sales contract finances only part of the vehicle cost with the balance being financed by the lessor.  Unlike with retail installment sales contracts, Sparta can and does charge acquisition fees for each of its leases. These fees range from $290 to $490 per lease depending on the amount of the lease.

Municipal Leasing of Equipment, including Police Motorcycles

In February 2007, Sparta launched a new Municipal Leasing Product designed expressly to meet the needs of law enforcement agencies throughout the U.S. Sparta estimates that the annual municipal market for new law enforcement motorcycles, alone, exceeds $300 million annually, based upon extensive discussions that the company conducted among Harley-Davidson, Honda, and BMW dealers, with those brands being the most prominent in the municipal environment.  Sparta believes that most of these agencies have historically been purchasing these vehicles with few, if any, financing alternatives, therefore, we developed a leasing alternative for governmental organizations to acquire the motorcycles they need, and remain within their budgets at the same time. We have partnered with a wholly owned subsidiary of a state chartered bank which specializes in municipal financing. Under this relationship, the Company originates for this subsidiary and negotiates the leases on behalf of it and the municipality. The Company receives an upfront origination fee and a structured commission for each closed lease.

Revenue from Ancillary Products and Services

We expect to receive additional revenue related to servicing our portfolio, such as lease acquisition fees, late payment fees, vehicle disposition fees at lease-end, early termination fees, charges for excess wear-and-tear on leased vehicles, and from ancillary products and services.

We are being positioned as a full service organization providing products and services to its dealers that are costly to obtain on an individual dealer basis.  Also, we offer a private label Guaranteed Auto Protection (“GAP”) plan for our dealers:

GAP Coverage – Sparta markets its private label GAP coverage on a fee basis to customers through dealers.  This coverage protects the customer should the vehicle be stolen or wrecked and the holder's primary insurance is not adequate to cover their payoff to the creditor that holds the lien on or the lease of the vehicle.

Sparta intends to continue to evaluate additional ancillary products and services and believes that it can create additional products and services to meet dealers' needs, creating company brand loyalty in the dealer community and generating other revenue streams.

Revenue from Remarketing Off-Lease and Repossessed Vehicles

Re-leasing to Original Lessees – Management commences its re-leasing efforts as early as eleven months prior to the end of the scheduled lease term.  Lessees' options are expected to include:  extending the lease, returning the vehicle to Sparta or buying the vehicle at the buy-out option price established at the beginning of the lease.  Sparta's policy requires lessees who wish to return their vehicles, return the vehicle to the originating dealer. If the lessee has moved, then the vehicle should be returned to the Authorized Sparta Dealer closest to the lessee. If this is impracticable, then Sparta will arrange to have the vehicle transported at the lessee's expense.
 
 
Returned Leased Vehicles – When a vehicle is returned to an Authorized Sparta Dealer at the end of the scheduled lease term, the dealer will inspect it for excessive wear and mileage over maximum levels specified under the lease agreement and prepares it for resale/lease. All Authorized Sparta Dealers and all Authorized Private Label Dealers are contractually bound to charge no more than cost plus ten-percent for repairs and to provide free storage for all consignment vehicles. Thereafter, Sparta plans to consign the vehicle to the originating dealer for sale or re-lease to a new party. Should the dealer decline to take the vehicle on consignment, it will be electronically marketed on the Classified Pages of the Sparta web site.  Sparta believes the market for used vehicles is significant and the opportunity to remarket the same vehicle numerous times is a key selling point with prospective dealerships.  Sparta believes that using its dealer network in such a manner will result in a better overall economic return on its portfolio as well as strengthen dealer relationships.

Repossessed Vehicles – All repossessed vehicles are similarly returned to the originating Authorized Sparta Dealer to be reconditioned, if needed, for consignment sale or re-lease in the same manner as returned vehicles.

Credit and Collections

Policies and Procedures

Based on management's experience in vehicle financing and leasing, we have developed policies and procedures for credit evaluation, collections, insurance follow up, and asset recovery.  We impose strict credit and demographic criteria to determine which retail installment sales contracts and lease applications are approved.

Credit Evaluation Process and Collateral Guidelines

To insure that Sparta's Credit Evaluation Process and Collateral Guidelines are consistently applied and that the credit/underwriting decision process provides rapid decisioning to our Authorized Sparta Dealers and our Authorized Private Label Dealers, Sparta has worked closely with a leading provider of interactive credit accessing and decisioning solutions, to develop our iPLUSÒ point of sale credit application decisioning and contract generating web based platform.

iPLUSÒ (internet Purchasing Leasing Underwriting Servicing)

Sparta's retail installment sales contract and leasing products are delivered through a proprietary, web-based, credit application processing platform.  This system is named iPLUSÒ and is structured as an Application Service Provider ("ASP") and has the capability of providing the dealer with conditional approvals seven days a week, twenty-four hours a day.  This system also provides the powersports dealer with system capabilities comparable to those of new car franchises.  Sparta believes iPLUSÒ provides the Authorized Sparta Dealers and Authorized Private Label Dealers with a competitive advantage and increases Sparta's ability to obtain a larger share of the dealer's business.

Additionally, this technology provides quick, consistent credit decisions for our dealer network and reduces the number of credit analysts required, thereby, reducing Sparta's expenses.

Sparta has established program guidelines that are an integral function of the iPLUSÒ decisioning process.  These program guidelines establish and clarify credit criteria such as credit tiers, maximum amount financed, term and rate, dealer rate participation, deal structure, buyer profile, credit bureau parameters, budget parameters, and eligible collateral, including maximum loan-to-value ratios for each of its retail installment sales contracts and lease agreements, depending on the applicant's credit rating and stability.  Sparta has developed its own credit criteria system by using an empirical score card and then assigning its own rating based on Sparta's experience. This rating is used as the basis to determine the terms and conditions under which an applicant is approved or declined.

Sparta conducts both applicant credit risk and asset evaluation before approving financing. Should the customer seek financing above this threshold, Sparta asks for a down payment from the borrower or lessee to close the gap between selling price and value.  The size of the down payment will be a function of the applicant's credit rating, stability, budget, and the value of the underlying asset.
 
 
Collection Procedures

Approving retail installment sales contracts and leases that comply with the policies and procedures established by Sparta is just the first step. A principal factor in the success of Sparta's business model is its ability to track contract and lease performance.

A third party provides the software Sparta uses to manage its assets, customer base, collections, insurance, and accounting systems.  Using a variety of basic and customized reports generated by this software, Sparta monitors its customers' compliance with their obligations under retail installment sales contracts or lease agreements.  These reports are accessed on a real-time basis by employees of Sparta and are distributed to management personnel for review. The reports include delinquency reports, collection tickler (promises) reports, insurance status reports, termination reports, inventory reports, maturing contract reports, and other information.

Sparta requires continuous physical damage insurance on all financed vehicles and continuous liability and physical damage insurance coverage on all leased vehicles.  In addition, Sparta is required to be listed as Additional Named Insured and Loss Payee. Continuous insurance is critical, and Sparta is permitted to repossess a vehicle if coverage lapses.  Any lapse in insurance coverage for any reason will lead to reinstatement of insurance coverage or repossession of leased vehicle.

Using Diversification to Reduce Portfolio Risk

Management will reduce portfolio risk not only by carefully screening applicants and monitoring covenant compliance, but also by diversifying its financing activities across credit tiers and Sparta's list of motorcycle, ATV, and scooter models that it will finance or lease.

Credit Tiers – Sparta expects that it will maintain a portfolio dominated by A/B credit applicants over C applicants in the ratio of at least 70/30.  Management anticipates that it will be able to rebalance its portfolio by training its sales force to work closely with dealerships in their territories to help Sparta maintain its conservative 70/30 target.

Sparta will also be able to manage this ratio by revising the variables in its various programs (terms and conditions under which Sparta will purchase retail installment sales contracts or lease vehicles), such as minimum income, debt ratios, payment to income ratios, minimum down payment required, acquisition fees (paid by dealer), discounts (paid by dealer), and other factors.

We are presently evaluating the economics of and market for a sub-prime program.

Portfolio Performance – Contracts and leases over 30 days delinquent were 1.88% of total portfolio balances at April 30, 2007, 2.85% at April 30, 2008, 3.70% at April 30, 2009, 7.51% at April 30, 2010 and 10.58% at April 30, 2011. Cumulative net losses and charge-offs as a percent of cumulative portfolio originations were 0.54% at April 30, 2007, 0.95% at April 30, 2008, 2.91% at April 30, 2009, 4.25% at April 30, 2010 and 4.78% at April 30, 2011.  Additionally, as of April 30, 2011, the Company maintained a cash reserve with its Senior Lender equal to 6.925% of the outstanding loan balance with that lender. The Company’s portfolio of contracts and leases has been in a run-off mode since the fall of 2008.

Sparta Approved Vehicle Models – Advance rates and other credit restrictions will be in effect for certain models and years based on the relevant facts and circumstances.

Market Information

According to the Motorcycle Industry Council’s 2009 Statistical Annual, from 1991 to their peak in 2006, annual sales of new 651CC+ motorcycles increased 439% to 543,000 units or approximately $6.8 billion while over the same period annual sales of all new motorcycles increased 325% to 1,190,000 units or approximately $11.9 billion. From 2007 through 2010, annual sales of new 651CC+ motorcycles declined 49.7% to 206,000 units or approximately $3.2 billion. There is no reliable data on the change in used motorcycle sales during the period.  Sparta estimates that the 2010 retail market for new and used 599cc+ motorcycles was approximately $6.1 billion.
 
 
According to the Motorcycle Industry Council’s 2009 Statistical Annual, 2008 ATV unit sales declined 28% from 2007 to 454,098 units and down from a peak of 812,970 in 2004.  For the first half of 2009 ATV unit sales declined 32% to 166,424 units from the first half of 2008. Sparta estimates that 2009 ATV unit sales declined approximately 30% from 2009 to 318,000 units and we estimate that 2010 sales remained at 2010 levels.

Data for the U.S. scooter market is inconsistent and unreliable as less than ½ of scooter manufacturers report their data. Of the available data, the reported unit market in 2008 was 76,748, but the Motorcycle Industry Council estimated market was 222,000 units. Early data for the first half of 2009, reported by Powersports Business in their 2009 Market Data Book, suggested a 67% decline in reported unit sales. Definitive data for all of 2009 and 2010 is not available.

Sales and Marketing

Normally, vehicle financing products are sold primarily at the dealer level, rather than the consumer level.  Our strategy is to utilize a direct sales force that promotes our products and services to qualified dealers, train them, and provide them with point-of-sale marketing materials.  This direct sales force will be comprised of Marketing Group and a Dealer Services Group.

The Marketing Group will continue to work directly with the manufacturers and distributors to obtain additional Private Label Contracts and to monitor our competition.  The Private Label partners will assist us directly in training the Private Label Dealers.  This will be done at the manufacturers/distributors place of business, at industry shows, or with a group of dealers in a common geographic area.

The Dealer Support Group accepts dealer application packages from dealers that want to be either or both our Authorized Sparta Dealers or Authorized Private Label Dealers.  They notify the approved dealers that they have been approved and provide them with the required information to process applications and print contracts using iPLUSÒ, including a Dealer Sign Up packet.  The Dealer Services Group is available to directly assist dealers by telephone and follow up with dealers on conditional approvals to assist them in forwarding the funding packages to us for purchase.  This group also accepts all incoming calls from dealers, answering their inquiries or directing them, if necessary, to the appropriate department.

Authorized Sparta Dealers are able to advertise both new and used vehicles in the Classified Section of our website, at no cost to the dealer.  Sparta plans to use this feature of the website to remarket its own inventory (both repossessed and returned end-of-term vehicles) throughout the country.  Our exclusive "Second-Chance Express" program for customers with a poor or limited credit history was created to help re-market our inventory.  Incentives are in place for Authorized Sparta Dealers who sell or lease either our inventory vehicle at their dealership or one that is at another dealership in our network.
 
Competition

The consumer finance industry is going through several changes due to current economic conditions and past lending practices. Broadly speaking, Sparta competes with commercial banks, savings & loans, industrial thrift and credit unions, and a variety of local, regional and national consumer finance companies. Additionally, some powersports manufacturers such as Harley-Davidson and BMW have captive subsidiaries that provide financing.

Independent consumer financial services companies and large commercial banks that participated in this market as well as some Powersports manufacturers providing factory financing programs have withdrawn substantially from the motorcycle financing niche over the past two years or have tightened their underwriting criteria. Sparta believes that those companies may have suffered as a result of compromising their underwriting criteria for the sake of volume. In addition, management believes that our competitors' practice of financing all makes and models of a particular manufacturer results in lower overall portfolio performance because of the poor demographics associated with some of those product lines. The marketplace also includes small competitors such as local credit unions, local banks, and a few regional entities.
 
 
A significant competitor of Sparta is GE Capital. GE Capital markets directly to dealers in the Powersports market and through Co Branded private label programs. GE recently has co-branded with Yamaha, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Moto Guzzi, Aprilia Brands and other national manufacturers and distributors of Powersports and recreational products such as Coachmen Industries. GE also offers dealer and distributor floor plan financing and private label credit cards.  To management’s knowledge, this firm does not offer leases for powersports vehicles. Recently, this company has announced cut backs in its consumer vehicle and other consumer financing programs.

Regulation

Our planned financing operations are subject to regulation, supervision, and licensing under various federal, state, and local statutes and ordinances.  Additionally, the procedures that we must follow in connection with the repossession of vehicles securing contracts are regulated by each of the states in which we do business.  Accordingly, the laws of such states, as well as applicable federal law, govern our operations.  Compliance with existing laws and regulations has not had a material adverse affect on our operations to date.  Our management believes that we maintain all requisite licenses and permits and are in material compliance with all applicable local, state, and federal laws and regulations.  We periodically review our office practices in an effort to ensure such compliance.
 
The following constitute certain of the federal, state, and local statutes and ordinances with which we must comply:
 
·  
Fair Debt Collection Practices Act.  The Fair Debt Collection Practices Act and applicable state law counterparts prohibit us from contacting customers during certain times and at certain places, from using certain threatening practices and from making false implications when attempting to collect a debt.
 
·

ITEM 1A.              RISK FACTORS

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

We have an operating history of losses.

Through our fiscal year ended April 30, 2011, we have generated cumulative sales revenues of $4,524,402, have incurred significant expenses, and have sustained significant losses. Our net loss for the year ended April 30, 2011 was $3,663,867.  As of April 30, 2011, we had a deficit net worth of $2,946,315.

We had an agreement for a credit line with an institutional lender, who has acquired preferences and rights senior to those of our capital stock and placed restrictions on the payment of dividends.  As of April 30, 2011, this line had been terminated.

In July 2005, we entered into a secured senior credit facility with New World Lease Funding for a revolving line of credit.  New World received a security interest in substantially all of our assets with seniority over the rights of the holders of our preferred stock and our common stock.  Until the security interests are released, those assets will not be available to us to secure future indebtedness.   New World has ceased all lending operations.  As of April 30, 2011, we owed an aggregate of $974,362 (which is secured by $1,141,536 of consumer Retail Installment Sales Contracts and Leases and $64,686 of restricted cash) to New World.  In granting the credit line, New World also required that we meet certain financial criteria in order to pay dividends on any of our preferred shares and common shares.  We may not be able to repay our outstanding indebtedness under the credit line.

We have an agreement for a master lease funding agreement.

In September 2010, we entered into a two year $5 million master lease funding agreement. Under this agreement we originate and underwrite motorcycle leases pursuant to the credit criteria of the lender and sell the leases to the lender for a fee. This type of agreement is known as a pass-through. The Company is liable for ten percent of the lender’s losses on the leases sold to it up to $500,000. There can be no assurances that we can underwrite a sufficient number of leases to fully utilize the initial amount of the agreement, and if we do there can be no assurance that this lender will increase the amount of the agreement. As of April 30, 2011, we have not utilized this line.

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

In order to expand our business, we need raise additional senior debt as well as capital to support the portion of the future leases and retail installment sales contracts which are not financed by the senior lender.  We generally refer to this portion as the “equity requirement” and the “sub-debt requirement”.  Presently, we have very limited operating capital to fund the equity requirements for new financing transactions or to execute our business plan.  In order to accomplish our business objectives, we expect that we will require substantial additional financing within a relatively short period.  The lack of capital has made it difficult to offer the full line of financing products contemplated by our business plan.  Without a senior bank line of credit, it will be extremely difficult to maintain and grow our business.  We will have to raise approximately $1.5 million over the next twelve months to support our business.  As our business grows, we will need to seek additional financing to fund growth.  To the extent that our revenues do not provide sufficient cash flow to cover such equity requirements and any reserves required under any additional credit facility, we may have to obtain additional financing to fund such requirements as may exist at that time.  There can be no assurance that we will have sufficient capital or be able to secure additional credit facilities when needed.  The failure to obtain additional funds, when required, on satisfactory terms and conditions, would have a material and adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition, and ultimately could result in the cessation of our business.
 
 
To the extent we raise additional capital by issuing equity securities; our stockholders may experience substantial dilution.  Also, any new equity securities may have greater rights, preferences or privileges than our existing common stock.  A material shortage of capital will require us to take drastic steps such as reducing our level of operations, disposing of selected assets or seeking an acquisition partner.  If cash is insufficient, we will not be able to continue operations.

Our auditor’s opinion expresses doubt about our ability to continue as a “going concern”.

The independent auditor’s report on our April 30, 2011 consolidated financial statements state that our historical losses raise substantial doubts about our ability to continue as a going concern.  We cannot assure you that we will be able to generate revenues or maintain any line of business that might prove to be profitable.  Our ability to continue as a going concern is subject to our ability to generate a profit or obtain necessary funding from outside sources, including obtaining additional funding from the sale of our securities, increasing sales or obtaining credit lines or loans from various financial institutions where possible.  If we are unable to develop our business, we may have to discontinue operations or cease to exist, which would be detrimental to the value of our common stock.  We can make no assurances that our business operations will develop and provide us with significant cash to continue operations.

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

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

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

Our operating results may differ from current forecasts and projections significantly in the future as a result of a variety of factors, many of which are outside our control.  These factors include, without limitation, the receipt of revenues, which is difficult to forecast accurately, the rate of default on our loans and leases, the amount and timing of capital expenditures and other costs relating to the expansion of our operations, the introduction of new products or services by us or our competitors, borrowing costs, pricing changes in the industry, technical difficulties, general economic conditions and economic conditions specific to the motorcycle industry.  The success of an investment in a consumer financing based venture is dependent, at least, in part, on extrinsic economic forces, including the supply of and demand for such services and the rate of default on the consumer retail installment contracts and consumer leases.  No assurance can be given that we will be able to generate sufficient revenue to cover our cost of doing business.  Furthermore, our revenues and results of operations will be subject to fluctuations based upon general economic conditions.  Economic factors like unemployment, interest rates, the availability of credit generally, municipal government budget constraints affecting equipment purchases and leasing, the rate of inflation, and consumer perceptions of the economy may affect the rate of prepayment and defaults on customer leases and loans and the ability to sell or dispose of the related vehicles for an amount at least equal to their residual values which may have a material adverse effect on our business.

A material reduction in the interest rate spread could have a negative impact on our business and profitability.

A significant portion of our net income is expected to come from an interest rate spread, which is the difference between the interest rates paid by us on interest-bearing liabilities, and the interest rate we receive on interest-earning assets, such as loans and leases extended to customers.  Interest rates are highly sensitive to many factors that are beyond our control, such as inflation, recession, global economic disruptions and unemployment.  There is no assurance that our current level of interest rate spread will not decline in the future.  Any material decline would have a material adverse effect on our business and profitability.
 
 
Failure to perfect a security interest could harm our business.

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

Risks associated with leasing.

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

Adverse changes in used vehicle prices may harm our business.

Significant increases in the inventory of vehicles may depress the prices at which we can sell or lease our inventory of used vehicles composed of off-lease and repossessed vehicles or may delay sales or leases.  Factors that may affect the level of used vehicles inventory include consumer preferences, leasing programs offered by our competitors and seasonality.  In addition, average used powersports vehicle prices have fluctuated in the past, and any softening in the used powersports vehicle market could cause our recovery rates on repossessed vehicles to decline below current levels.  Lower recovery rates increase our credit losses and reduce the amount of cash flows we receive.

Our business is dependent on intellectual property rights and we may not be able to protect such rights successfully.

Our intellectual property, including our license agreements and other agreements, which establish our rights to proprietary intellectual property developed in connection with our credit decisioning and underwriting software system, iPLUS®, is of great value to our business operations.  Infringement or misappropriation of our intellectual property could materially harm our business.  We rely on a combination of trade secret, copyright, trademark, and other proprietary rights laws to protect our rights to this valuable intellectual property.  Third parties may try to challenge our intellectual property rights.  In addition, our business is subject to the risk of third parties infringing or circumventing our intellectual property rights.  We may need to resort to litigation in the future to protect our intellectual property rights, which could result in substantial costs and diversion of resources.  Our failure to protect our intellectual property rights could have a material adverse effect on our business and competitive position.

We face significant competition in the industry.

We compete with commercial banks, savings and loans, industrial thrifts, credit unions and consumer finance companies, including large consumer finance companies such as GE Capital.  Many of these competitors have well developed infrastructure systems in place as well as greater financial and marketing resources than we have.  Additionally, competitors may be able to provide financing on terms significantly more favorable than we can offer.  Providers of motorcycle financing have traditionally competed on the basis of interest rates charged, the quality of credit accepted, the flexibility of terms offered and the quality of service provided to dealers and customers.  We seek to compete predominantly on the basis of our high level of dealer service and strong dealer relationships, by offering flexible terms, and by offering both lease and loan options to customers with a broad range of credit profiles.  Many of our competitors focus their efforts on different segments of the credit quality spectrum.  While a number of our competitors have reduced their presence in the powersports financing industry because of industry specific factors and the current situation in the global credit markets, our business may be adversely affected if any of such competitors in any of our markets chooses to intensify its competition in the segment of the prime or sub-prime credit spectrum on which we focus or if dealers become unwilling to forward to us applications of prospective customers.  To the extent that we are not able to compete effectively within our credit spectrum and to the extent that the intensity of competition causes the interest rates we charge to be lower, our results of operations can be adversely affected.
 
 
Our business is subject to various government regulations.

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

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

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

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

Our board is empowered to issue, without stockholder approval, preferred stock, on one or more series, with dividend, liquidation, conversion, voting or other rights that could adversely affect the voting power or other rights of the holders of common stock.  From time to time, we have designated, and may in the future designate, series of preferred stock carrying various preferences and rights different from, and greater than, our common stock.  As of April 30, 2011, we have two series of preferred stock outstanding. Preferred stock could be utilized, under certain circumstances, as a method of discouraging, delaying or preventing a change in control of the company.

We are subject to various securities-related requirements as a reporting company.

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

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

Our directors and executive officers beneficially own approximately 18.2% of our common stock as of April 30, 2011.  Accordingly, these persons and their respective affiliates have the ability to exert substantial control over the election of our Board of Directors and the outcome of issues submitted to our stockholders, including approval of mergers, sales of assets or other corporate transactions.  In addition, such control could preclude any unsolicited acquisition of our company and could affect the price of our common stock.
 
 
We are dependent on our management and the loss of any officer could hinder our implementation of our business plan.

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

In May 2010, our subsidiary, Specialty Reports, Inc. purchased the majority interest in a small internet based company, Cyclechex, LLC, and we may be unable to successfully incorporate its products into our business model.

Cyclechex LLC was engaged in the business of selling, via the internet, information describing the title history of motorcycles. Since May 2011, we have devoted a substantial amount of the Company’s resources to improving the amount and quality of the data offered the Cyclechex web site, launched new but similar products RV Checks, and CarVin Report and has attracted affiliates to the web sites all with the aim to be defacto go to sites for motorcycle and RV data. Additionally, we have commenced marketing, on an exclusive basis, mobile applications “apps” to vehicle dealers which will allow dealers to communicate with their customers and potential customers via cell phone applications. To date, Specialty Reports, Inc has operated at a loss. There can be no assurance that we can achieve this goal or that even if we do, that these products will be profitable.

Our executive offices are located at 462 Seventh Avenue, 20th Floor, New York, NY 10018. We have an agreement for use of office space at this location under a lease expiring on November 30, 2012. The office space contains approximately 7,000 square feet.  The rent for the year ended April 30, 2011 was $330,765.  For the year ended April 30, 2012, the rent is $312,565, and for the seven months ending November 30, 2012, the rent is $184,947.

"FORWARD-LOOKING" INFORMATION

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

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the information  set forth in the audited  financial statements for the years ended April 30, 2011 and April 30, 2010 and footnotes found in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

For the year ended April 30, 2011, our revenues decreased. We have continued to incur declining but significant expenses, and have sustained significant losses.

Revenues

Revenues totaled $513,768 in fiscal 2011 compared to revenues of $713,363 in fiscal 2010. Fiscal 2011 revenues were primarily comprised of $240,923 in interest income from Retail Installment Sales Contracts, $112,465 in income from Operating and Finance Leases, $47,620 in Commissions on municipal lease transactions, $55,455 from subsidiary revenues, and $31,920 in interest income on notes receivable.

Costs and Expenses

We incurred employee compensation and benefit costs of $1,232,747 for the year ended April 30, 2011 compared with $1,061,074 in fiscal 2010. The increase is primarily related to additional personnel in connection with our new subsidiary, Specialty Reports, Inc and the acquisition of Cyclechex, LLC.

In connection with placement transactions, we expensed non-cash costs in the form of shares of common stock or warrants of $126,848 and $593,629 for the years ended April 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. In connection with consulting services, we expensed non-cash costs in the form of shares of common stock or warrants of $297,100 and $260,000 for the years ended April 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.  These amounts were charged to financing costs. Additionally, during the fiscal year ended April 30, 2011, we expensed $103,589 as the value of employee stock and option based compensation as compared to $76,289 in the prior fiscal year. During the year ended April 30, 2011, we charged a $230,644 beneficial discount for convertible note conversion options to financing costs as compared to $45,000 in fiscal 2010. At April 30, 2011 and 2010, accrued preferred dividends of $279,055 and $97,175, respectively, were charged to retained earnings.

We incurred consulting costs of $133,480 for the year ended April 30, 2011, as compared to $138,950 for the year ended April 30, 2010. This decrease was the result of reduced reliance on outside consultants. We incurred legal and accounting fees of $304,506 for the year ended April 30, 2011, as compared to $365,561 for the year ended April 30, 2010.

We incurred other operating expenses of $725,725 for the year ended April 30, 2011.  Notable expenses in this category are: general office expenses of $156,164; rent of $330,765; travel and entertainment of $41,172; utilities of $62,075; network expenses of $55,163; advertising and marketing of $45,934; maintenance contracts of $10,431; and taxes of $24,021.  We incurred other operating expenses of $617,717 for the year ended April 30, 2010.  Notable expenses in this category are: general office expenses of $99,159; rent of $312,633; loss reserve expense of $69,431; travel and entertainment of $36,118; utilities of $60,427; web development of $13,839; marketing of $10,654; maintenance contracts of $8,504; and taxes of $6,953.
 
 
Interest costs for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2011 were $394,384 as compared to $993,943 for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2010. Depreciation and amortization for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2011 was $92,394 as compared to $702,388 for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2010. The $609,994 decrease was due primarily to a decrease of $574, 203 in amortization expenses with the transaction DZ Bank and a $364,001 expense related to Black Scholes valuation of warrants issued as compensation.

Net Loss

Our net loss attributable to common stockholders for the year ended April 30, 2011 decreased $508,952 (12%) to $3,729,401 from a loss of $4,238,353 for the year ended April 30, 2010. The decrease in net loss attributable to common stockholders was primarily due to:  a $275,546 (11%) increase in total general and administrative expenses from $2,519,592 to $2,795,137; a $199,595 (28%) decrease in revenues from $713,363 to $513,768; a $599,559 (60%) decrease in interest expense and financing costs from $993,943 to $394,384; a $466,771 (79%) decrease in non-cash financing costs from $593,619 to $126,848: amortization of debt discount of $230,644 as compared to 0 last year, a $493,228 (1096%) increase in derivative liability expenses: and a $609,944 (87%) decrease in depreciation and amortization to $92,394 from $702,388. $593,529  of the prior year’s loss was due to the write off, at year end, of deferred financing and start-up costs in connection with the DZ facility which costs, had the facility been in place, would have been written-off during fiscal year 2011.

Our net loss per common share (basic and diluted) attributable to common stockholders was $0.01 for the year ended April 30, 2011 and $0.01 for the year ended April 30, 2010.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

As of April 30, 2011, we had a deficit net worth of $2,946,315. We generated a deficit in cash flow from operations of $2,019,830 for the year ended April 30, 2011. This deficit is primarily attributable to net loss from operations of $2,373,763, adjusted for: preferred dividends of $157,746, depreciation and amortization of $92,394, equity based compensation of $403,720, stock based financing costs of $126,928, changes in derivative liabilities of $538,228, beneficial conversion discount of convertible securities of $230,644, and to changes in the balances of current assets, consisting primarily of a decrease in restricted cash of $81,647, a decrease in interest receivable of $17,533, and an increase in accounts receivable of $17,520, and current liabilities, consisting primarily of an increase in accounts payable of $229,885. Cash flows provided by investing activities for the year ended April 30, 2011 were $1,073,097, comprising of $79,917 from the retirement of leased vehicles, and liquidation of Retail Installment Sales Contracts in the amount of $993,180. We met our cash requirements during the period through net proceeds from the issuances of convertible notes of $878,067, we repaid senior loans of $1,036,627 during the period, and we sold common and preferred stock for net proceeds of $1,101,086.
  
Our senior credit facility with New World Lease Funding was suspended by them in August 2008 due to the global financial crisis at the time. Subsequently, they have ceased all lending operations.

In September 2010, we entered into a two year $5 million master lease funding agreement. Under this agreement we originate and underwrite motorcycle leases pursuant to the credit criteria of the lender and sell the leases to the lender for a fee. This type of agreement is known as a pass-through. The company is liable for ten percent of the lender’s losses on the leases sold to it up to $500,000. There can be no assurances that we can underwrite a sufficient number of leases to fully utilize the initial amount of the agreement, and if we do there can be no assurance that this lender will increase the amount of the agreement. To date, we have not sold any leases to this lender as the yields required by the lender are not competitive in the current market for powersports financing. We are in discussion with this lender to modify their requirements.

While we have raised capital to meet our working capital and financing needs in the past, additional financing is required in order to meet our current and projected cash flow deficits from operations and development.

We continue seeking additional financing which may be in the form of senior debt, subordinated debt or equity.  Other than described above, we currently have no commitments for financing. However, we are in negotiations with two senior lenders for senior secured financing and have signed an agreement with a placement agent for both debt and equity.  There is no guarantee that we will be successful in raising the funds required.
 
 
We estimate that we will need approximately $1,500,000 in addition to our normal operating cash flow to conduct operations during the next twelve months.  Based on the above, on capital received from equity financing to date, and certain indications of interest to purchase our equity, we believe that we have a reasonable chance to raise sufficient capital resources to meet projected cash flow deficits through the next twelve months.  There can be no assurance that additional private or public financing, including debt or equity financing, will be available as needed, or, if available, on terms favorable to us. Any additional equity financing may be dilutive to stockholders and such additional equity securities may have rights, preferences or privileges that are senior to those of our existing common or preferred stock. Furthermore, debt financing, if available, will require payment of interest and may involve restrictive covenants that could impose limitations on our operating flexibility. However, if we are not successful in generating sufficient liquidity from operations or in raising sufficient capital resources, on terms acceptable to us, this could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations, liquidity and financial condition, and we will have to adjust our planned operations and development on a more limited scale.

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

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

The independent auditors report on our April 30, 2011 and 2010 consolidated financial statements included in this Annual Report states that our historical losses and the lack of revenues raise substantial doubts about our ability to continue as a going concern, due to the losses incurred and lack of significant operations. If we are unable to develop our business, we may have to discontinue operations or cease to exist, which would be detrimental to the value of the Company's common stock. We can make no assurances that our business operations will develop and provide us with significant cash to continue operations.

PLAN OF OPERATIONS

Addressing the Going Concern Issues

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

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

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

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

To address these issues, we are negotiating the potential sale of securities with investment banking companies to assist us in raising capital. We are also presently in discussions with several institutions about obtaining additional credit facilities.
 
 
Product Research and Development

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

Acquisition or Disposition of Plant and Equipment

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

Number of Employees

From our inception through the period ended April 30, 2011, we have relied on the services of outside consultants for services and currently have eleven full-time employees.  In order for us to attract and retain quality personnel, we anticipate we will have to offer competitive salaries to future employees. If we fully implement our business plan, we anticipate our employment base may increase by approximately 50% during the next twelve months. As we continue to expand, we will incur additional cost for personnel. This projected increase in personnel is dependent upon our generating revenues and obtaining sources of financing. There is no guarantee that we will be successful in raising the funds required or generating revenues sufficient to fund the projected increase in the number of employees.

Inflation

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

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

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

Revenue Recognition

We purchase Retail Installment Sales Contracts ("RISC") from motorcycle dealers and we originate leases on new and used motorcycles and other powersports vehicles from motorcycle dealers throughout the United States.

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

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

Revenues in our Specialty Reports, Inc. subsidiary are recognized on a cash basis.

Stock-Based Compensation

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

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

The Company has loss reserves for its portfolio of Leases and for its portfolio of Retail Installment Sales Contracts (“RISC”). The allowance for Lease and RISC losses is increased by charges against earnings and decreased by charge-offs (net of recoveries). To the extent actual credit losses exceed these reserves, a bad debt provision is recorded; and to the extent credit losses are less than the reserve, additions to the reserve are reduced or discontinued until the loss reserve is in line with the Company’s reserve ratio policy. Management’s periodic evaluation of the adequacy of the allowance is based on the Company’s past lease and RISC experience, known and inherent risks in the portfolio, adverse situations that may affect the borrower’s ability to repay, the estimated value of any underlying collateral, and current economic conditions. The Company periodically reviews its Lease and RISC receivables in determining its allowance for doubtful accounts.

The Company charges-off receivables when an individual account has become more than 120 days contractually delinquent. In the event of repossession, the asset is immediately sent to auction or held for release.

ITEM 8.                 FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTARY DATA

 

 
REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

Board of Directors
Sparta Commercial Services, Inc.
New York, New York
 
 
We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Sparta Commercial Services, Inc., as of April 30, 2011 and 2010, and the related consolidated statements of losses, deficit and cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended April 30, 2011. These financial statements are the responsibility of the company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the financial statements based upon our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States of America). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatements. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Sparta Commercial Services, Inc. at April 30, 2011 and 2010, and the consolidated results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended April 30, 2011, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in the Note Q to the accompanying consolidated financial statements, the company has suffered recurring losses from operations that raises substantial doubt about the company's ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note Q. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
APRIL 30, 2011 AND 2010

NOTE A - SUMMARY OF ACCOUNTING POLICIES

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

Business and Basis of Presentation

The Company is in the business as an originator and indirect lender for retail installment loan and lease financing for the purchase or lease of new and used motorcycles (specifically 550cc and higher) and utility-oriented 4-stroke all terrain vehicles (ATVs).
  
In December 2008, the Company formed Sparta Funding, LLC (“Sparta Funding”), a Delaware limited liability company, for which the Company is the sole member. Sparta Funding was formed as a special purpose company to borrow funds, but was never utilized. Sparta Funding was dissolved in November 2010.

In May 2010, the Company formed Specialty Reports, Inc, a Nevada Corporation (“SRI”), for the purpose of acquiring all of the assets of Cyclechex, LLC, a Florida limited liability company (“Cyclechex”). Cyclechex’s sole business was an e-commerce business which acquired the relevant motorcycle data and sold the data in the form of motorcycle history reports over the internet to consumers and dealers. As part of the transaction, the Company issued 24% of SRI common stock to the sole owner of Cyclechex.

Estimates

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

Revenue Recognition

Revenues from the Company’s majority owned subsidiary, Specialty Reports, Inc., are recognized on a cash basis.

The Company originates leases on new and used motorcycles and other powersports vehicles from motorcycle dealers throughout the United States. The Company's leases are accounted for as either operating leases or direct financing leases. At the inception of operating leases, no lease revenue is recognized and the leased motorcycles, together with the initial direct costs of originating the lease, which are capitalized, appear on the balance sheet as "motorcycles under operating leases-net". The capitalized cost of each motorcycle is depreciated over the lease term, on a straight-line basis, down to the Company's original estimate of the projected value of the motorcycle at the end of the scheduled lease term (the "Residual"). Monthly lease payments are recognized as rental income. Direct financing leases are recorded at the gross amount of the lease receivable, and unearned income at lease inception is amortized over the lease term.

The Company purchases Retail Installment Sales Contracts (“RISC”) from motorcycle dealers. The RISCs are secured by liens on the titles to the vehicles. The RISCs are accounted for as loans.  Upon purchase, the RISCs appear on the Company’s balance sheet as RISC loan receivable current and long term. Interest income on these loans is recognized when it is earned. During the fiscal years ended April 30, 2011 and April 30, 2010, the Company did not purchase any Retail Installment Sales Contracts.
 
 
SPARTA COMMERCIAL SERVICES, INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
APRIL 30, 2011 AND 2010

The Company realizes gains and losses as the result of the termination of leases, both at and prior to their scheduled termination, and the disposition of the related motorcycle. The disposal of motorcycles, which reach scheduled termination of a lease, results in a gain or loss equal to the difference between proceeds received from the disposition of the motorcycle and its net book value. Net book value represents the residual value at scheduled lease termination. Lease terminations that occur prior to scheduled maturity as a result of the lessee’s voluntary request to purchase the vehicle have resulted in net gains, equal to the excess of the price received over the motorcycle’s net book value.

Early lease terminations also occur because of (i) a default by the lessee, (ii) the physical loss of the motorcycle, or (iii) the exercise of the lessee’s early termination. In those instances, the Company receives the proceeds from either the resale or release of the repossessed motorcycle, or the payment by the lessee’s insurer. The Company records a gain or loss for the difference between the proceeds received and the net book value of the motorcycle.

The Company charges fees to manufacturers and other customers related to creating a private label version of the Company’s financing program including web access, processing credit applications, consumer contracts and other related documents and processes. Fees received are amortized and booked as income over the length of the contract. At April 30, 2011 and 2010, the Company had recorded deferred revenue related to these contracts of $2,250 and $7,650, respectively.

The Company evaluates its operating and retail installment sales leases on an ongoing basis and has established reserves for losses, based on current and expected future experience.

Inventories

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

Website Development Costs

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

Cash Equivalents

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

Income Taxes

Deferred income taxes are provided using the asset and liability method for financial reporting purposes in accordance with the provisions of ASC 740-10, "Accounting for Income Taxes".  Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for temporary differences between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their carrying values for financial reporting purposes and for operating loss and tax credit carry forwards.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be removed or settled.  The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in the statements of operations in the period that includes the enactment date.
 
 
SPARTA COMMERCIAL SERVICES, INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
APRIL 30, 2011 AND 2010

ASC 740-10, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return.  ASC 740also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, treatment of interest and penalties, and disclosure of such positions.  As a result of implementing ASC 740, there has been no adjustment to the Company’s consolidated financial statements and the adoption of ASC 740 did not have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the year ending April 30, 2011.
 
Fair Value Measurements
 
The Company adopted ASC 820,” Fair Value Measurements”.  ASC 820 establishes a three-level fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value.  The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets the lowest priority to unobservable inputs to fair value measurements of certain assets and Liabilities.  The three levels of the fair value hierarchy under ASC 820 are described below:

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

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

·  
Level 3 — Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the fair value measurements.  Level 3 assets and liabilities include financial instruments whose value is determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies, or similar techniques based on significant unobservable inputs, as well as management judgments or estimates that are significant to valuation.

This hierarchy requires the Company to use observable market data, when available, and to minimize the use of unobservable inputs when determining fair value.  For some products or in certain market conditions, observable inputs may not always be available.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

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

Comprehensive Income

In accordance with ASC 220-10, “Reporting Comprehensive Income," establishes standards for reporting and displaying of comprehensive income, its components and accumulated balances.  Comprehensive income is defined to include all changes in equity except those resulting from investments by owners and distributions to owners.  Among other disclosures, ASC 220-10 requires that all items that are required to be recognized under current accounting standards as components of comprehensive income be reported in a financial statement that is displayed with the same prominence as other financial statements.  At April 30, 2011, the Company has no items of other comprehensive income.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
APRIL 30, 2011 AND 2010

Segment Information

The Company does not have separate, reportable segments under ASC 280-10, “Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information”.  ASC 280-10 establishes standards for reporting information regarding operating segments in annual financial statements and requires selected information for those segments to be presented in interim financial reports issued to stockholders.  ASC 280-10 also establishes standards for related disclosures about products and services and geographic areas.  Operating segments are identified as components of an enterprise about which separate discrete financial information is available for evaluation by the chief operating decision maker, or decision making group, in making decisions how to allocate resources and assess performance.  The information disclosed herein, materially represents all of the financial information related to the Company's principal operating segment.

Stock Based Compensation

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

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

Concentrations of Credit Risk

Financial instruments and related items, which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk, consist primarily of cash, cash equivalents and receivables. The Company places its cash and temporary cash investments with high credit quality institutions. At times, such investments may be in excess of the FDIC insurance limit.

Allowance for Losses

The Company has loss reserves for its portfolio of Leases and for its portfolio of Retail Installment Sales Contracts (“RISC”).  The allowance for Lease and RISC losses is increased by charges against earnings and decreased by charge-offs (net of recoveries).  To the extent actual credit losses exceed these reserves, a bad debt provision is recorded; and to the extent credit losses are less than the reserve, additions to the reserve are reduced or discontinued until the loss reserve is in line with the Company’s reserve ratio policy.  Management’s periodic evaluation of the adequacy of the allowance is based on the Company’s past lease and RISC experience, known and inherent risks in the portfolio, adverse situations that may affect the borrower’s ability to repay, the estimated value of any underlying collateral and current economic conditions.  The Company periodically reviews its Lease and RISC receivables in determining its allowance for doubtful accounts.

The Company charges-off receivables when an individual account has become more than 120 days contractually delinquent.  In the event of repossession, the asset is immediately sent to auction or held for release.

APRIL 30, 2011 AND 2010

Property and Equipment

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

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

Advertising Costs

The Company follows a policy of charging the costs of advertising to expenses incurred. During the years ended April 30, 2011 and 2010, the Company incurred advertising costs of $3,283 and $4,170, respectively.

Net Loss Per Share

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

Per share basic and diluted net loss attributable to common stockholders amounted to $0.01 and $0.01 for the years ended April 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. At April 30, 2011 and 2010, 217,658,863 (including 73,899,200 shares to be issued disclosed on the balance sheet) and 54,987,623 (including 23,967,965 shares to be issued included on the balance sheet) potential shares, respectively, were excluded from the shares used to calculate diluted earnings per share as their inclusion would reduce net loss per share.
 
Reclassifications

Certain reclassifications have been made to conform to prior periods' data to the current presentation. These reclassifications had no effect on reported losses.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
In July 2010, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update ASU 2010-20, Receivables (Topic 310) – Disclosures about the Credit Quality of Financing Receivables and the Allowance for Credit Losses, which required more information about credit quality. The ASU introduces the term “financing receivables”, which includes loans, trade accounts receivable, notes receivable, credit cards, leveraged leases, direct financing leases, and sales-type leases. The term does not include receivables measured at fair value or the lower of cost of fair value and debt securities among others. It also defines two levels of disaggregation for disclosure: portfolio segment and class of financing receivables. A portfolio segment is defined as the level at which an entity determines its allowance for credit losses. A class of financing receivable is defined as a group of finance receivables determined on the basis of their initial measurement attribute (i.e., amortized cost of purchased credit impaired), risk characteristics, and an entity’s method for monitoring and assessing credit risk. The ASU requires an entity to provide additional disclosures including, but not limited to, a roll forward schedule of the allowance for credit losses (with the ending allowance balance further disaggregated based on impairment methodology) and the related ending balance of the finance receivable presented by portfolio segment, and the aging of past due financing receivables at the end of the period, the nature and extent of troubled debt restructurings that occurred during the period and their impact on the allowance for credit losses, the nature and extend of troubled debt restructurings that occurred within the last year, that have defaulted in the current reporting period, and their impact on the allowance for credit losses, the nonaccrual status of financing receivables, and impaired financing receivables, presented by class. The extensive new disclosures of information as of the end of a reporting period will become effective for both interim and annual reporting periods ending after December 15, 2010 for public companies. Specific items regarding activity that occurred before the issuance of the ASU, such as the allowance roll forward and modification disclosures will be required for periods beginning after December 15, 2010 for public companies. We adopted this pronouncement as disclosed in Note D.

Other recent accounting pronouncements issued by the FASB (including its Emerging Issues Task Force), the AICPA, and the SEC did not, or are not believed by management to, have a material impact on the Company’s present or future  financial statements.

NOTE F - SENIOR SECURED NOTES PAYABLE

(a)  
The Company finances certain of its leases through a third party. The repayment terms are generally one year to five years and the notes are secured by the underlying assets. The weighted average interest rate at April 30, 2011 is 10.33%.

(b)  
On October 31, 2008, the Company purchased certain loans secured by a portfolio of secured motorcycle leases (“Purchased Portfolio”) for a total purchase price of $100,000.  The Company paid $80,000 at closing, $10,000 in April 2009 and agreed to pay the remaining $10,000 upon receipt of additional Purchase Portfolio documentation.  Proceeds from the Purchased Portfolio started accruing to the Company beginning November 1, 2008.

To finance the purchase, the Company issued a $150,000 Senior Secured Note dated October 31, 2008 (“Senior Secured Note”) in exchange for $100,000 from the holder.  Terms of the Senior Secured Note require the Company to make semi-monthly payments in amounts equal to all net proceeds from Purchased Portfolio lease payments and motorcycle asset sales received until the Company has paid $150,000 to the holder.

Once the Company has paid $150,000 to the holder from Purchased Portfolio proceeds, the Company is obligated to pay fifty percent of all net proceeds from Purchased Portfolio lease payments and motorcycle asset sales until the Company and the holder mutually agree the Purchase Portfolio has no remaining proceeds.

The Company was obligated to pay any remainder of the Senior Secured Note by November 1, 2009 which was extended to May 1, 2011, and has granted the note holder a security interest in the Purchased Portfolio. On January 31, 2011, the holder converted $50,000 of the outstanding balance of the Note into 4,545,455 shares of the Company’s restricted common stock.
