FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS
This report on Form 10-K contains forward-looking statements within the meaning
of Rule 175 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Rule 3b-6 of the Securities Act of 1934, as amended, that involve substantial
risks and uncertainties. These forward-looking statements are not historical facts, but rather are based on current expectations,
estimates and projections about our industry, our beliefs and our assumptions. Words such as “anticipate,” “expects,”
“intends,” “plans,” “believes,” “seeks” and “estimates” and variations
of these words and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees
of future performance and are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors, some of which are beyond our control and difficult
to predict and could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or forecasted in the forward-looking statements.
You should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which apply only as of the date of this Form 10-K. Investors
should carefully consider all of such risks before making an investment decision with respect to the Company’s stock. The
following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements for Brightcube, Inc.
Such discussion represents only the best present assessment from our Management.
Item 1. Business.
Brightcube, Inc., a Nevada corporation (sometimes referred to herein as “we”,
“us”, “our”, “Company” and the “Registrant”) (formerly Photoloft, Inc.) was incorporated
in Nevada on January 23, 1986. Prior to filing for bankruptcy (described below), we provided Internet and digital imaging infrastructure,
technology, products and services to the professional art and photography markets.
On September 30, 2002, we filed in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District
of California (the “Bankruptcy Court”) a voluntary petition seeking relief under Chapter 7 of Title 11 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code, Case No. LA02-37844SB. As a result of the Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition, our assets were transferred to a U.S.
Trustee and we terminated our business operations. In connection with the Chapter 7 petition, each of our officers and directors
either resigned or was terminated. After the Trustee disposed of substantially all of our assets, the Bankruptcy Court on March
19, 2003 closed this Bankruptcy.
Since September 2002, we have not engaged in any business operations, and have not filed
the reports required by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Accordingly, we had abandoned our business.
On March 24, 2010, Securities and Exchange Commission Division of Enforcement issued an
Order Instituting Proceedings (File No. 3-13834) against Brightcube, Inc. for being delinquent in its periodic filings with the
Commission. An Offer of Settlement in the above captioned proceedings became effective June 7, 2010, revoking Brightcube’s
securities registered pursuant to Exchange Act Section 12.
As of September 16, 2011, due to an effective Exchange Act registration statement on
Form 10, we commenced filing annual, quarterly, special reports and other required information with the SEC. We intend to
furnish our stockholders with annual reports containing consolidated financial statements certified by an independent public
accounting firm. The Form 10 registration statement is, and any of these future filings with the SEC will be, available to
the public over the Internet at the SEC’s web site at www.sec.gov.
Change in Control following Emergence from Bankruptcy
On December 19, 2005, the Clark County Court, Nevada approved an Order granting the custodianship
of the Company to Michael F. Manion. The appointment requires the custodian to continue the business of the Company and not to
liquidate its affairs or distribute its assets. The material terms of the transaction confirmed by the Clark County Court generally
authorize Mr. Manion to appoint new members to the Company's board of directors and to take any and all actions on behalf of the
Company permitted by Nevada Statutes Section 78.347, including actions to:
settle affairs, collect outstanding debts, sell and convey property, real and personal;
demand, sue for, collect, receive and take into his or their possession all the goods
and chattels, rights and credits, moneys and effects, lands and tenements, books, papers, choses in action, bills, notes and property,
of every description of the corporation;
institute suits at law or in equity for the recovery of any estate, property, damages
or demands existing in favor of the corporation; and
exercise the rights and authority of a Board of Directors and Officers in accordance with
state law, the articles and bylaws.
In connection with the Order and subsequent Directors meeting held on December 20,
2005 Michael F. Manion was appointed our sole director and president (“Management”). In consideration for these
services, we expect to issue restricted shares of common stock to Mr. Manion, as we are unable to pay for any expenses
incurred or services rendered on the Company’s behalf. Such issuance shall result in Mr. Manion having a majority
interest in our common stock.
At the annual meeting of shareholders held on September 27, 2006, the shareholders, in
part,: (a) elected Michael F. Manion Director of the corporation, (b) approved a plan of corporate restoration whereby Brightcube
Inc. would attempt to become a current and compliant with its Security and Exchange reporting obligations, (c) approved a resolution
that all previously issued and unissued preferred stock of every Series and all conversion rights of said stock were rescinded
and extinguished, (d) authorized and approved a new series of super voting convertible preferred stock to be designated Series
C Preferred, and (e) ratified the engagement of Michael Cronin CPA to audit the Company’s financial statements. We never
ratified the adoption of the Series C Preferred and subsequently we amended and restated our Articles of Incorporation to eliminate
Preferred Stock authorizations. Amended & Restated Articles of Incorporation were filed with The Nevada Secretary of State
on October 24, 2011 and are included herein as Exhibit 1.
New Business Objectives
As a result of the Chapter 7 bankruptcy proceeding, we have no present operations. Management
has determined to direct its efforts and limited resources to pursue potential new business opportunities. We do not intend to
limit ourselves to a particular industry and have not established any particular criteria upon which we shall consider and proceed
with a business opportunity.
From March 1, 1999 through December 20, 2000, our common stock was trading on the OTCBB
under the symbol “LOFT” and since December 20, 2000, under the symbol “BRCU”. In connection with filing
a Chapter 7 bankruptcy petition in September 2002 and subsequent delinquency in our reporting requirements, our common stock became
subject to quotation on the pink sheets under the symbol “BRCU.PK”.
There is currently no trading market in our shares. There can be no assurance that there
will be an active trading market for our common stock. In the event that an active trading market commences, there can be no assurance
as to the market price of our shares of common stock, whether any trading market will provide liquidity to investors, or whether
any trading market will be sustained. Management intends to devote such time as it deems necessary to carry out our affairs. The
exact length of time required for the pursuit of any new potential business opportunities is uncertain. No assurance can be made
that we will be successful in our efforts. We cannot project the amount of time that our Management will actually devote to our
plan of operation.
Plan of Operation
We have no present operations or revenues and our current activities are related to
seeking new business opportunities, including seeking an acquisition or merger with an operating
company. Management has voting control of the Company and therefore has substantial flexibility in identifying and
selecting a prospective new business opportunity.
We are entirely dependent on the judgment of Management in connection with pursuing a
new business opportunity or a selection process for a target operating company. In evaluating a prospective new business
opportunity or an operating company, we would consider, among other factors, the following: (i) costs associated with effecting
a transaction; (ii) equity interest in and opportunity to control the prospective candidate; (iii) growth potential of the target
business; (iv) experience and skill of management and availability of additional personnel; (v) necessary capital requirements;
(vi) the prospective candidate's competitive position; (vii) stage of development of the business opportunity; (viii) the market
acceptance of the business, its products or services; (ix) the availability of audited financial statements of the potential business
opportunity; and (x) the regulatory environment that may be applicable to any prospective business opportunity.
The foregoing criteria are not intended to be exhaustive and there may be
other criteria that Management may deem relevant. In connection with an evaluation of a prospective or potential
business opportunity, Management may be expected to conduct a due diligence review. Management intends to devote such time as
it deems necessary to carry out the Registrant's affairs. The exact length of time required for the pursuit of any new
potential business opportunities is uncertain. No assurance can be made that we will be successful in our efforts. We cannot
project the amount of time that our management will actually devote to the Registrant's plan of operation. The Company is
not obligated nor does Management intend to seek pre-approval from our shareholders regarding business opportunities.
The Registrant intends to conduct its activities so as to avoid being classified as an
"Investment Company" under the Investment Company Act of 1940, and therefore avoid application of the costly and restrictive
registration and other provisions of the Investment Company Act of 1940 and the regulations promulgated thereunder.
Registrant is a Blank Check Company
At present, the Registrant is a development stage company with no revenues and has no
specific business plan or purpose. The Registrant's business plan is to seek new business opportunities or to engage in a merger
or acquisition with an unidentified company. As a result, the Registrant is a blank check company and any offerings of the Registrant's
securities need to comply with Rule 419 under the Act. The Registrant's common stock is a "penny stock," as defined in
Rule 3a51-1 under the Exchange Act.
The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in penny stock not
otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document that provides information about penny stocks
and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid
and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its sales person in the transaction, and monthly
account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer's account. In addition, the penny stock rules
require that the broker-dealer, not otherwise exempt from such rules, must make a special written determination that the penny
stock is suitable for the purchaser and receive the purchaser's written agreement to the transaction. These disclosure rules have
the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for a stock that becomes subject to the penny stock
rules. So long as the common stock of the Registrant is subject to the penny stock rules, it may be more difficult to sell the
Registrant's common stock.
Furthermore, many states have enacted statutes, rules and regulations limiting the sale
of securities of “blank check” companies in their respective jurisdictions. Management does not intend to undertake
any efforts to cause a market to develop in our securities, either debt or equity, until we have successfully concluded a business
combination. The Company intends to comply with the periodic reporting requirements of the Exchange Act for so long as it is subject
to those requirements.
At present, we have limited business operations directed primarily at funding the
costs, including professional accounting fees and filing expenses, of registering our securities under the Exchange Act and continuing
to be a reporting company under the Exchange Act. Our other business activities of seeking potential business opportunities are
currently not actively being pursued. Due to our limited financial and personnel resources, there is only a limited basis upon
which to evaluate our prospects for achieving our intended business objectives. We have only limited resources and have no operating
income, revenues or cash flow from operations. Our management is providing us with limited funding, on an as needed basis,
necessary for us to continue our corporate existence and our business objective to seek new business opportunities. Mr. Manion
is not required to commit his full time to our affairs. As a result, pursuing new business opportunities may require a greater
period of time than if he would devote his full time to our affairs. Management is not precluded from serving as officer or director
of any other entity that is engaged in business activities similar to those of the Registrant. Management has not identified and
is not currently negotiating a new business opportunity for us.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
December 31, 2011, we had $ 567 cash as our only asset. We will use our limited personnel
and financial resources in connection with seeking new business opportunities, including seeking an acquisition or merger with
an operating company. It may be expected that entering into a new business opportunity or business combination will involve the
issuance of a substantial number of restricted shares of common stock. If such additional restricted shares of common stock are
issued, our shareholders will experience a dilution in their ownership interest in us. If a substantial number of restricted shares
are issued in connection with a business combination, a change in control may be expected to occur.
In connection with our plan to seek new business opportunities and or effecting a business
combination, we may determine to seek to raise funds from the sale of restricted stock or debt securities. We have no agreements
to issue any debt or equity securities and cannot predict whether equity or debt financing will become available at terms acceptable
to us, if at all.
There are no limitations in our articles of incorporation on our ability to borrow funds
or raise funds through the issuance of restricted common stock to effect a business combination. Our limited resources and lack
of operating history may make it difficult to do borrow funds or raise capital. Our inability to borrow funds or raise funds through
the issuance of restricted common stock required to effect or facilitate a business combination may have a material adverse effect
on our financial condition and future prospects, including the ability to complete a business combination. To the extent that debt
financing ultimately proves to be available, any borrowing will subject us to various risks traditionally associated with indebtedness,
including the risks of interest rate fluctuations and insufficiency of cash flow to pay principal and interest, including debt
of an acquired business.
Due to the Company’s lack of capital to fund the search for a merger acquisition,
the Registrant may not discover or adequately evaluate adverse facts about the business to be acquired. In addition, we will be
competing against other entities that possess greater financial, technical and managerial capabilities for identifying and completing
business combinations. In evaluating a prospective business combination, we will conduct as extensive a due diligence review of
potential targets as possible given the lack of information that may be available regarding private companies, our limited personnel
and financial resources.
The time and costs required to select and evaluate a target business and to structure
and complete a business combination cannot presently be ascertained with any degree of certainty. Any costs incurred with respect
to the indemnification and evaluation of a prospective business combination that is not ultimately completed will result in a loss
Additionally, the Company is in a highly competitive market for a small number of business
opportunities, which could reduce the likelihood of consummating a successful business combination. We are, and will continue to
be, an insignificant participant in the business of seeking mergers with, joint ventures with and acquisitions of small private
and public entities. A large number of established and well-financed entities, including small public companies and venture capital
firms, are active in mergers and acquisitions of companies that may be desirable target candidates for us. Nearly all these entities
have significantly greater financial resources, technical expertise and managerial capabilities than we do; consequently, we will
be at a competitive disadvantage in identifying possible business opportunities and successfully completing a business combination.
These competitive factors may reduce the likelihood of our identifying and consummating a successful business combination.
Item 1A. Risk Factors.
An investment in the Company is highly speculative in nature and involves a high degree
of risk. You should consider carefully the following risk factors before investing in our securities. If any of the following risks
actually occurs, our business, financial condition, or results of operations could be adversely affected.
Dependence on Key Personnel
The Registrant is dependent upon the continued services of Michael F. Manion, its sole
officer and director. To the extent that his services become unavailable, the Registrant will be required to obtain other qualified
personnel and there can be no assurance that it will be able to recruit and hire qualified persons upon acceptable terms.
Limited Resources with No Current Revenues
At present, we have limited business operations and our business activities are limited
to seeking potential business opportunities. Due to our limited financial and personnel resources, there is only a limited basis
upon which to evaluate our prospects for achieving our intended business objectives. We have only limited resources and have no
operating income, revenues or cash flow from operations. Our management is providing us with limited funding, on an as needed
basis, necessary for us to continue our corporate existence and our business objective to seek new business opportunities, as well
as funding the costs, including professional accounting fees, of registering its securities under the Exchange Act and continuing
to be a reporting company under the Exchange Act. We have no written agreement with our management to provide any interim financing
for any period. In addition, we will not generate any revenues unless and until we enter into a new business, of which there
can be no assurance.
Our limited funds and the lack of full-time management will likely make it impracticable
to conduct a complete and exhaustive investigation and analysis of a business opportunity before we commit our capital or other
resources to such opportunity. Management decisions, therefore, will likely be made without detailed feasibility studies, independent
analysis, market surveys and the like which, if we had more funds, would be desirable. We will be particularly dependent in making
decisions upon information provided by the promoter, owner, sponsor, or others associated with the business opportunity seeking
our participation. A significant portion of our available funds may be expended for investigative expenses, legal fees and other
expenses related to preliminary aspects of completing an acquisition transaction, whether or not any business opportunity investigated
is eventually acquired.
Future success is highly dependent on the ability of management to locate and attract
a suitable acquisition at which time the success of the acquisition may be dependent on many things out of our control.
Broad Discretion of Management
Any person who invests in our securities will do so without an opportunity to evaluate
the specific merits or risks of any potential new prospective business in which we may engage. As a result, investors will be entirely
dependent on the broad discretion and judgment of management in connection with the selection of a prospective business. There
can be no assurance that determinations made by our management will permit us to achieve our business objectives.
Absence of Substantive Disclosure Relating to Present Business
As of the date of this annual filing, we have not yet identified any prospective business
or industry in which we may seek to become involved and at present we have no information concerning any prospective business.
There can be no assurance that any prospective business opportunity will benefit shareholders or prove to be more favorable to
shareholders than any other investment that may be made by shareholders and investors.
No Market for Common Stock and None May Develop or Be Sustained
As a result of our June 2011 SEC Administrative Proceeding settlement, our common stock
has no symbol or current listing on any market or exchange of any sort. With no current trading market in the common stock., there
can be no assurance that there will be an active trading market for the common stock following a business combination or commencement
of a new business. In the event that an active trading market commences, there can be no assurance as to the market price of the
shares of common stock, whether any trading market will provide liquidity to investors, or whether any trading market will be sustained.
Unspecified Industry for Prospective Business Opportunities and Unascertainable
There is no basis for shareholders to evaluate the possible merits or risks of potential
new business opportunities or the particular industry in which we may ultimately operate. To the extent that we effect a business
combination with a financially unstable entity or an entity that is in its early stage of development or growth, including entities
without established records of revenues or income, we will become subject to numerous risks inherent in the business and operations
of that financially unstable company. In addition, to the extent that we effect a business combination with an entity in an industry
characterized by a high degree of risk, we will become subject to the currently unascertainable risks of that industry. An high
level of risk frequently characterizes certain industries that experience rapid growth. Although management will endeavor to evaluate
the risks inherent in a particular new prospective business or industry, there can be no assurance that we will properly ascertain
or assess all such risks or that subsequent events may not alter the risks that we perceive at the time of the consummation of
any new business opportunity.
Conflicts of Interest
Our management is not required to commit their full time to our affairs. There may be
a conflict of interest in allocating their time in the event that management engages in similar business efforts for other entities.
Our management will devote such time, in their sole discretion, to conduct our business, including the evaluation of potential
new business opportunities. As a result, the amount of time devoted to our business and affairs may vary significantly depending
upon whether we have identified a new prospective business opportunity or are engaged in active negotiations related to a new business.
In the event that a conflict of interest shall arise, management will consider factors such as reporting status, availability of
audited financial statements, current capitalization and the laws of jurisdictions. If several business opportunities or operating
entities approach management with respect to a business combination, management will consider the foregoing factors as well as
the preferences of the management of the operating company. However, management will act in what they believe will be in the best
interests of the shareholders of the Registrant and other respective public companies. The Registrant shall not enter into a transaction
with a target business that is affiliated with management.
While seeking a business combination, management anticipates devoting very limited time,
no more than five hours per week on average, to the Company’s affairs before a suitable target company is identified. Our
officers have not entered into a written employment agreement with us and do not expected to do so in the foreseeable future. This
limited commitment may adversely impact our ability to identify and consummate a successful business combination.
There may be conflicts of interest between our management and the non-management stockholders
of the Company.
We expect to encounter intense competition from other entities seeking to pursue new business
opportunities. Many of these entities are well-established and have extensive experience in identifying new prospective
business opportunities. Many of these competitors possess greater financial, technical, human and other resources than we do and
there can be no assurance that we will have the ability to compete successfully. Based upon our limited financial and personnel
resources, we may lack the resources as compared to those of many of our potential competitors.
The nature of our operations is highly speculative, and there is a consequent risk of
loss of an investment in the Company. The success of our plan of operation will depend to a great extent on the operations, financial
condition and management of the identified business opportunity. In the event we complete a business combination, the success of
our operations may be dependent upon management of the successor firm or venture partner firm and numerous other factors beyond
Reporting Requirements May Impair Acquisition Opportunities
Pursuant to the requirements of Section 13 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as
amended (the “Exchange Act”), the Company is required to provide certain information about significant acquisitions
and other material events. The Company will continue to be required to file quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and annual
reports on Form 10-K, which annual report must contain our audited financial statements. As a reporting company under
the Exchange Act, following any business combination, the Company will be required to file a report on Form 8-K or other form appropriate
under the Exchange Act, which contains audited financial statements of the acquired entity. These audited financial
statements must be filed with the SEC within 4 days following the filing of Form 8-K disclosing the transaction. While
obtaining audited financial statements is typically the economic responsibility of the acquired company, it is possible that a
potential target company may be a non-reporting company with unaudited financial statements. The additional time and costs that
may be incurred by some potential target companies to prepare such audited financial statements may significantly delay or may
even preclude consummation of an otherwise desirable transaction. Acquisition prospects that do not have or are unable
to obtain the required audited statements may not be appropriate for acquisition because the Company is subject to the reporting
requirements of the Exchange Act.
Additional Financing Requirements
Reporting requirements under the Exchange Act and compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act
of 2002, including establishing and maintaining acceptable internal controls over financial reporting, are costly. We have no revenues
and are dependent upon the willingness of management to fund the costs associated with the reporting obligations under the Exchange
Act, and other administrative costs associated with our corporate existence.
We may not generate any revenues unless and until the commencement of new business operations.
We believe that we will have sufficient funds available to pay accounting and professional fees and other expenses to fulfill our
reporting obligations under the Exchange Act until we commence business operations. In the event that our available funds, from
Mr. Manion and/or affiliates, prove to be insufficient, we will be required to seek additional financing. Our failure to secure
additional financing could have a material adverse affect on our ability to pay the accounting and other fees in order to continue
to fulfill our reporting obligations and pursue our business plan. We do not have any arrangements with any bank or financial institution
to secure additional financing and there can be no assurance that any such arrangement would be available on terms acceptable and
in our best interests. We do not have any written agreement with Mr. Manion and/or affiliates to provide funds for our operating
Limitations on Resale of Our Securities and Blue Sky Requirements
The holders of our shares of common stock and those persons who desire to purchase them
if any trading market that might develop, should be aware that there may be state blue-sky law restrictions upon the ability of
investors to resell our securities. Accordingly, investors should consider the secondary market for the Registrant's securities
to be a limited one.
It is the present intention of the Registrant's management after the commencement of new
business operations to seek coverage and publication of information regarding the Registrant in an accepted publication manual,
which permits a manual exemption. The manual exemption permits a security to be distributed in a particular state without being
registered if the Registrant issuing the security has a listing for that security in a securities manual recognized by the state.
However, it is not enough for the security to be listed in a recognized manual. The listing entry must contain (1) the names of
issuer's officers, and directors, (2) an issuer's balance sheet, and (3) a profit and loss statement for either the fiscal year
preceding the balance sheet or for the most recent fiscal year of operations. Furthermore, the manual exemption is a nonissuer
exemption restricted to secondary trading transactions, making it unavailable for issuers selling newly issued securities.
Most of the accepted manuals are those published in Standard and Poor's, Moody's Investor
Service, Fitch's Investment Service, and Best's Insurance Reports, and many states expressly recognize these manuals. A smaller
number of states declare that they "recognize securities manuals" but do not specify the recognized manuals. The following
states do not have any provisions and therefore do not expressly recognize the manual exemption: Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky,
Louisiana, Montana, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont and Wisconsin.
We do not expect to pay dividends for the foreseeable future because we have no revenues.
The payment of dividends will be contingent upon our future revenues and earnings, if any, capital requirements and overall financial
condition. The payment of any future dividends will be within the discretion of our board of directors. It is our expectation that
after the commencement of new business operations that future management will determine to retain any earnings for use in business
operations and accordingly, we do not anticipate declaring any dividends in the foreseeable future.
Possible Issuance of Additional Securities
Our Articles of Incorporation, as amended and restated, authorize the issuance of 200,000,000
shares of common stock, par value $0.001. As of December 31, 2011 the date of this annual filing, we have 188,043,662 shares issued
and outstanding. We may be expected to issue additional shares in connection with our pursuit of new business opportunities and
new business operations. To the extent that additional shares of common stock are issued, our shareholders would experience dilution
of their respective ownership interests. If we issue shares of common stock in connection with our intent to pursue new business
opportunities, a change in control of the Registrant may be expected to occur. The issuance of additional shares of common stock
may adversely affect the market price of our common stock, in the event that an active trading market commences.
Compliance With Penny Stock Rules
Our securities will be considered a "penny stock" as defined in the Exchange
Act and the rules thereunder, unless the price of our shares of common stock is at least $5.00. We expect that our share price
will be less than $5.00. Unless our common stock is otherwise excluded from the definition of "penny stock", the penny
stock rules apply. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in penny stock not otherwise exempt from
the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document that provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level
of risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for
the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its sales person in the transaction, and monthly account statements
showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer's account. In addition, the penny stock rules require that the
broker-dealer, not otherwise exempt from such rules, must make a special written determination that the penny stock is suitable
for the purchaser and receive the purchaser's written agreement to the transaction. These disclosure rules have the effect of reducing
the level of trading activity in the secondary market for a stock that becomes subject to the penny stock rules. So long as the
common stock is subject to the penny stock rules, it may become more difficult to sell such securities. Such requirements could
limit the level of trading activity for our common stock and could make it more difficult for investors to sell our common stock.
In addition, the SEC has recently disclosed that it has developed internal informal guidelines
concerning the use of a resale registration statement to register the securities issued to certain investors in private investment
in public equity (PIPE) transactions, where the issuer has a market capitalization of less than $75 million and, in general, does
not qualify to file a Registration Statement on Form S-3 to register its securities. The SEC has taken the position that these
smaller issuers may not be able to rely on Rule 415 under the Securities Act (“Rule 415”), which generally permits
the offer and sale of securities on a continued or delayed basis over a period of time, but instead would require that the issuer
offer and sell such securities in a direct or “primary” public offering, at a fixed price, if the facts and circumstances
are such that the SEC believes the investors seeking to have their shares registered are underwriters and/or affiliates of the
We will be deemed a blank check company under Rule 419 of the Securities Act of 1933.
In any subsequent offerings, we will have to comply with Rule 419.
We are required to comply with the provisions of Rule 419 of the Securities Act in any
registered offering of securities while we are a blank check or shell company. Pursuant to Rule 419 we will be required to deposit
all funds in escrow pending the provision of advice about the proposed transaction to our stockholders fully disclosing all information

Item 6. Selected Financial Data.
Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results
This Annual Report on Form 10-K contains forward-looking
statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), and
Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). The words “believe,”
“expect,” “anticipate,” “project,” “target,” “optimistic,” “intend,”
“aim,” “will” or similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements
include, among others, those concerning our expected financial performance and strategic and operational plans, as well as all
assumptions, expectations, predictions, intentions or beliefs about future events. These statements are based on the beliefs of
our management as well as assumptions made by and information currently available to us and reflect our current view concerning
future events. As such, they are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause our results to differ materially from those
expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, among many others: our ability
to consummate a successful business transaction; uncertainty of capital resources; the speculative nature of our business; our
ability to successfully implement new strategies; present and possible future governmental regulations; operating hazards; competition;
the loss of key personnel; any of the factors in the “Risk Factors” section of this Report; other risks identified
in this Report, and any statements of assumptions underlying any of the foregoing. We assume no obligation and do not intend to
update these forward-looking statements, except as required by law.
By their nature, all forward looking statements involve risk and uncertainties. All phases
of the Company’s operations involve risks and uncertainties, many of which are outside of the Company’s control, and
any one of which, or a combination of which, could materially affect the Company’s results of operations and whether the
forward looking statements ultimately prove to be correct. Actual results may differ materially from those contemplated by the
forward looking statements for a number of reasons.
The Company as currently organized is a vehicle to investigate and, if such investigation
warrants, acquire a target company or business seeking the perceived advantages of being a publicly held corporation. Our principal
business objective will be to achieve long-term growth potential through a combination with a business rather than immediate,
short-term earnings. There can be no assurance that the Company will ever consummate a business combination and achieve long-term
growth potential or immediate, short-term earnings from any business combination the Company enter into.
During the fiscal year ended December 31, we incurred expenses related to fees paid to
Company’s Securities Counsel,
Independent Accounting Firm audit fees,
Expenses associated with SEC filing requirements
State of Nevada annual fees
Transfer Agent service fees
Resident Agent service fees
Liquidity and Capital Resources
The Company does not currently engage in any business activities that provide cash flow.
The Company will be able to conduct its planned operation using currently available capital resources for a minimum of three months.
During the next 12 months we anticipate incurring costs related to the above identified “Operating Expenses”. The Company
may also incur expenses related to investigating, analyzing and consummating an acquisition.
Management anticipates that fees associated with filing of Exchange Act reports including
accounting fees and legal fees and payment of annual corporate fees will not exceed $15,000 within next 12 months. We anticipate
we may need indeterminable additional Company funds to consummate a business combination if a suitable target is ever identified.
We expect that the expenses for the next 12 months and beyond such time will be paid with
amounts that may be loaned to us by our management. Our management has not entered into a written agreement to pay any costs or
expenses incurred by the Company. We have minimal assets and may cease business operations if we do not timely consummate a business
combination but continue to incur losses due to the expenses associated with being a reporting company under the Exchange Act.
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We have not entered into any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably
likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results
of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources and would be considered material to investors.
Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.
Item 8. Financial Statements and Supplementary Data.

are filed under this item, beginning on page F-1 of the Annual Report on Form 10-K.
REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
Michael F. Cronin
Certified Public Accountant
Orlando, FL 32708
Board of Directors and Shareholders
The Villages, FL
I have audited the accompanying balance sheet of Brightcube, Inc. as of December 31, 2011
and 2010 and the related statements of operations, stockholders' deficiency and cash flows for the years then ended. The financial
statements are the responsibility of the directors. My responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based
on my audits.
I conducted my audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting
Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that I plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance
about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The company is not required to have, nor was I engaged
to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. My audit 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, I 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. I believe that my audits provide a reasonable basis for my opinion.
In my opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Brightcube,
Inc. as of December 31, 2011 and 2010 and the results of its operations, its cash flows and changes in stockholders' deficiency
for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will
continue as a going concern. The Company has incurred a $18,800 loss from operations and has no cash. The Company may not have
adequate readily available resources to fund operations through 2012. This raises substantial doubt about the Company’s ability
to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this

BACKGROUND AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
December 31, 2011
Brightcube, Inc. (the "Company"), (formerly Photoloft, Inc.), a Nevada corporation,
was incorporated on January 23, 1986. Prior to filing for bankruptcy under chapter 7 on September 30, 2002, Brightcube (through
its subsidiary Extreme Velocity Group, Inc. (EVG) provided Internet and imaging solutions to the art market.
Bankruptcy Proceedings: On September 30, 2002, the Company filed a
voluntary Chapter 7 petition under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of
California (case no. LA02-37844SB) As a result of the filing, all of our properties were transferred to a United States
Trustee and we terminated all of our business operations. The Bankruptcy Trustee has disposed of all of the assets. On March
19, 2003 the U.S. Bankruptcy Court Central District of California closed the case.
Clark County Court, Nevada Proceedings: On December 19, 2005, the Clark
County Court, Nevada approved an Order granting the custodianship of the company to Michael F. Manion. The material terms of the
transaction confirmed by the Clark County Court generally authorize Mr. Manion to appoint new members to the Registrant's board
of directors and to take any and all actions on behalf of the Company permitted by Nevada Statutes Section 78.347.
Basis of Presentation: We adopted "fresh-start" accounting
as of October 1, 2002 in accordance with procedures specified by AICPA Statement of Position ("SOP") No. 90-7,
"Financial Reporting by Entities in Reorganization under the Bankruptcy Code. The results of the discontinued component
have been reclassified from continuing operations. All transactions after September 30, 2002 have been reported as the
Significant Accounting Policies
Use of Estimates: The preparation of financial statements in
conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect
reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial
statement and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from the
Cash and Cash Equivalents: For financial statement presentation purposes,
the Company considers those short-term, highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less to be cash or
Property and Equipment: New property and equipment are recorded at cost.
Property and equipment included in the bankruptcy proceedings and transferred to the Trustee had been valued at liquidation value.
Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets, generally 5 years. Expenditures
for renewals and betterments are capitalized. Expenditures for minor items, repairs and maintenance are charged to operations as
incurred. Gain or loss upon sale or retirement due to obsolescence is reflected in the operating results in the period the event
Valuation of Long-Lived Assets: We review the recoverability of our long-lived
assets including equipment, goodwill and other intangible assets, when events or changes in circumstances occur that indicate that
the carrying value of the asset may not be recoverable. The assessment of possible impairment is based on our ability to recover
the carrying value of the asset from the expected future pre-tax cash flows (undiscounted and without interest charges) of the
related operations. If these cash flows are less than the carrying value of such asset, an impairment loss is recognized for the
difference between estimated fair value and carrying value. Our primary measure of fair value is based on discounted cash flows.
The measurement of impairment requires management to make estimates of these cash flows related to long-lived assets, as well as
other fair value determinations.
Stock Based Compensation: Stock-based awards to employees and
non-employees are accounted for using the fair value method in accordance with ASC 718, Share-Based Payments. Our
primary type of share-based compensation consists of stock options. ASC 718 requires that companies measure and recognize
compensation expense at an amount equal to the fair value of share-based payments granted under compensation arrangements..
We calculate the fair value of options using a Black-Scholes option pricing model. We do not currently have any outstanding
options subject to future vesting.
ASC 718 also requires the benefits of tax deductions in excess of recognized compensation
expense to be reported in the Statement of Cash Flows as a financing cash inflow rather than an operating cash inflow. In addition,
ASC 718 required a modification to the Company’s calculation of the dilutive effect of stock option awards on earnings per
Fair Value of Financial Instruments: FASB ASC 825, “Financial Instruments,”
requires entities to disclose the fair value of financial instruments, both assets and liabilities recognized and not recognized
on the balance sheet, for which it is practicable to estimate fair value. FASB ASC 825 defines fair value of a financial instrument
as the amount at which the instrument could be exchanged in a current transaction between willing parties. At December 31, 2011
and 2010, the carrying value of certain financial instruments (cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable and accrued expenses.)
approximates fair value due to the short-term nature of the instruments or interest rates, which are comparable with current rates
Earnings per Common Share: We have adopted the provisions of ASC 260, Earning
per Share. ASC 260 requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) on the face of the income statement.
Basic EPS is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number
of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding
during the period using the treasury stock method and convertible preferred stock using the if-converted method. In computing Diluted
EPS, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise
of stock options or warrants. Diluted EPS excludes all dilutive potential shares if their effect is anti dilutive.
There were no common equivalent shares required to be added to the basic weighted average
shares outstanding to arrive at diluted weighted average shares outstanding in 2011 or 2010.
Income Taxes: We have adopted ASC 740, Accounting for Income Taxes. Pursuant
to ASC 740, we are required to compute tax asset benefits for net operating losses carried forward. The potential benefits of
net operating losses have not been recognized in these financial statements because the Company cannot be assured it is more
likely than not it will utilize the net operating losses carried forward in future years.
We must make certain estimates and judgments in determining income tax expense for financial
statement purposes. These estimates and judgments occur in the calculation of certain tax assets and liabilities, which arise from
differences in the timing of recognition of revenue and expense for tax and financial statement purposes.
Deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the differences between financial
reporting and the tax basis of assets and liabilities using the tax rates and laws in effect when the differences are expected
to reverse. ASC 740 provides for the recognition of deferred tax assets if realization of such assets is more likely than not to
occur. Realization of our net deferred tax assets is dependent upon our generating sufficient taxable income in future years in
appropriate tax jurisdictions to realize benefit from the reversal of temporary differences and from net operating loss, or NOL,
carryforwards. We have determined it more likely than not that these timing differences will not materialize and have provided
a valuation allowance against substantially all of our net deferred tax asset. Management will continue to evaluate the realizability
of the deferred tax asset and its related valuation allowance. If our assessment of the deferred tax assets or the corresponding
valuation allowance were to change, we would record the related adjustment to income during the period in which we make the determination.
Our tax rate may also vary based on our results and the mix of income or loss in domestic and foreign tax jurisdictions in which
In addition, the calculation of our tax liabilities involves dealing with uncertainties
in the application of complex tax regulations. We recognize liabilities for anticipated tax audit issues in the U.S. and other
tax jurisdictions based on our estimate of whether, and to the extent to which, additional taxes will be due. If we ultimately
determine that payment of these amounts is unnecessary, we will reverse the liability and recognize a tax benefit during the period
in which we determine that the liability is no longer necessary. We will record an additional charge in our provision for taxes
in the period in which we determine that the recorded tax liability is less than we expect the ultimate assessment to be.
ASC 740 which requires recognition of estimated income taxes payable or refundable on
income tax returns for the current year and for the estimated future tax effect attributable to temporary differences and carry-forwards.
Measurement of deferred income tax is based on enacted tax laws including tax rates, with the measurement of deferred income tax
assets being reduced by available tax benefits not expected to be realized.
Subsequent Events: Subsequent events have been evaluated up to
and including the date at which the financial statements were available-March 23, 2012. There are no subsequent events to be
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In June 2011, the FASB issued ASC update No. 2011-05, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220),
Presentation of Comprehensive Income. The FASB decided to eliminate the option to present components of other comprehensive
income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity, among other amendments in this update. The
amendments require that all non-owner changes in stockholder’s equity be presented in a single continuous statement of comprehensive
income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, the Company is required to present each component
of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive
income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. The statement of other comprehensive income should immediately
follow the statement of net income and include the components of other comprehensive income and total for other comprehensive income,
along with a total for comprehensive income.
The entity is also required to present on the face of the financial statements reclassification
adjustments for items that are reclassified from other comprehensive income to net income in the statement(s) where the components
of net income and the components of comprehensive income are presented. The amendments in this update should be applied
retrospectively, and are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011
Management does not anticipate that the adoption of these standards will have a material
impact on the financial statements.
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
December 31, 2011
1. “Fresh Start” Accounting:
On September 30, 2002 all assets were transferred to the chapter 7 trustee in settlement
of all outstanding corporate obligations. We adopted "fresh-start" accounting as of October 1, 2002 in accordance with
procedures specified by AICPA Statement of Position ("SOP") No. 90-7, "Financial Reporting by Entities in Reorganization
under the Bankruptcy Code."
All results for periods subsequent to September 30, 2002 are referred to as those of the
"Successor Company". The results of operations and cash flows as presented on the 2001 financial statements reflect the
predecessor company. The successor company had no transactions between October 1, 2002 and the end of the subsequent interim reporting
period and through December 31, 2002.
In accordance with SOP No. 90-7, the reorganized value of the Company was allocated to
the Company's assets based on procedures specified by SFAS No. 141, "Business Combinations". Each liability existing
at the plan sale date, other than deferred taxes, was stated at the present value of the amounts to be paid at appropriate market
rates. It was determined that the Company's reorganization value computed immediately before September 30, 2002 was $0. We adopted
"fresh-start" accounting because holders of existing voting shares immediately before filing and confirmation of the
sale received less than 50% of the voting shares of the emerging entity and its reorganization value is less than its post-petition
liabilities and allowed claims.
2. Court Proceedings and Regulatory Compliance:
Bankruptcy Court Proceedings: On September 30, 2002, the Registrant filed
a voluntary Chapter 7 petition under the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court Central District of California (case
no. LA02-37844SB). On March 19, 2003 this Chapter 7 bankruptcy was closed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court Central District of California.
County Court Proceedings: On December 19, 2005, Clark County Court, Nevada
approved an Order granting the custodianship of the company to Michael Manion. The appointment is requires the custodian is to
continue the business of the corporation and not to liquidate its affairs or distribute its assets. The material terms of the transaction
confirmed by the Clark County Court generally authorize Mr. Manion to appoint new members to the Registrant's board of directors
and to take any and all actions on behalf of the Company permitted by Nevada Statutes Section 78.347, including actions to:
- settle affairs, collect outstanding debts, sell and convey property, real and personal
- demand, sue for, collect, receive and take into his or their possession all the
goods and chattels, rights and credits, moneys and effects, lands and tenements, books, papers, choses in action, bills, notes
and property, of every description of the corporation
- institute suits at law or in equity for the recovery of any estate, property, damages
or demands existing in favor of the corporation
- exercise the rights and authority of a Board of Directors and Officers in accordance
with state law, the articles and bylaws
Resultant Change in Control: In connection with the Order confirming custodianship
of the company to Mr. Manion approved on December 19, 2005, Michael Manion became our sole director on December 20, 2005.
Securities and Exchange Commission Administrative Proceedings: On March
24, 2010 Brightcube was the subject of a Securities and Exchange Commission Administrative Proceeding in which the SEC Division
of Enforcement issued an Order Instituting Proceedings (OIP) (File No. 3-13834). The Administrative Proceeding was instituted pursuant
to Section 12(j) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 against Brightcube, Inc. for being delinquent in its periodic filings with
the Commission since the Company last filed an interim quarterly report for the period ended June 30, 2002.
On June 7, 2010 the Commission accepted an Offer of Settlement and entered an Order Making
Findings and Revoking Registration of Securities Pursuant to Section 12(j) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as to Brightcube,
As of September 16, 2011, due to an effective Exchange Act registration statement on Form
10, Brightcube, Inc. commenced filing required annual, quarterly, special reports and other information with the SEC. We intend
to furnish our stockholders with annual reports containing consolidated financial statements certified by an independent public
accounting firm. The Form 10 registration statement is and any of these future filings with the SEC will be, available to the public
over the Internet at the SEC’s web site at www.sec.gov.
3. Income Taxes:
We have adopted ASC 740 which provides for the recognition of a deferred tax asset based
upon the value the loss carry-forwards will have to reduce future income taxes and management's estimate of the probability of
the realization of these tax benefits.
Our net operating loss carryovers available to reduce future income taxes were reduced
or eliminated through our bankruptcy proceedings. Any remaining net operating loss carryovers incurred prior to 2005 considered
available to reduce future income taxes were further reduced or eliminated through our recent change of control (I.R.C. Section
382(a)) and the continuity of business limitation of I.R.C. Section 382(c).
We have a current operating loss carry-forward of $ 43,000 resulting in deferred tax assets
of $14,280. We have determined it more likely than not that these timing differences will not materialize and have provided a valuation
allowance against substantially all our net deferred tax asset.
Future utilization of currently generated federal and state NOL and tax credit carry forwards
may be subject to a substantial annual limitation due to the ownership change limitations provided by the Internal Revenue Code
of 1986, as amended and similar state provisions. The annual limitation may result in the expiration of NOL and tax credit carry
forwards before full utilization.
The Company is not under examination by any jurisdiction for any tax year. Our federal
and state income tax returns are open for fiscal years ending on or after December 31, 2002.
The Company, prior to its bankruptcy, was a party to numerous claims and threatened litigation. As a result of the bankruptcy and
the subsequent transfer by the Bankruptcy Trustee of the Company’s corporate shell entity free of all liens, claims and encumbrances
pursuant to Section 363(f) of the US Bankruptcy Code, the Company is no longer party to any litigation.
The Company is not a party to any leases and does not have any commitments.
4. Stockholders' Equity:
In July 2000, the Company's Board of Directors increased the number of authorized shares
of common stock to 200,000,000. On December 23, 2010 the Company issued 100,000,000 shares of common stock to Mr. Manion as payment
for $42,000 in advances of operating expenses made by him on our behalf. The stock is subject to trading restrictions.
Stock Based Compensation
There are no employee or non-employee options granted or outstanding.
5. Related Party Transactions not Disclosed Elsewhere:
Due Related Parties: Amounts due related parties consist of corporate reinstatement
expenses paid directly by Mr. Manion. These unpaid items totaled $6,686 at December 23, 2011.
Fair value of services: Mr. Manion provided his services and office space without
cost to the Company. These had a combined value of $1,000 per month. The total of these expenses was $12,000 for 2011 and 2010
respectively, and was reflected in the statement of operations as general and administrative expenses with a corresponding contribution
of paid-in capital.
Item 9. Changes in and Disagreements with Accountants on Accounting and Financial
The Company has had no disagreements with its certified public accountants with respect
to accounting practices or procedures or financial disclosure.
Item 9a. Controls and Procedures
Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
The Company’s Management, which consists solely of Mr. Michael F. Manion, who
acts as both our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer and is the only Director, along with the participation
of an outside CPA conducted an evaluation regarding the effectiveness of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures (as
defined in Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based upon the evaluation of these controls and procedures,
Management concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this
annual filing in such that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed under the Exchange Act is (i)
recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms and (ii)
accumulated and communicated to our management, including our CEO and Principal Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow
timely decisions regarding disclosure. However, Management noted that there are several material weaknesses in our disclosure
controls and procedures.
A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control
over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial
statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.
A controls system cannot provide absolute assurance, however, that the objectives of the
controls system are met, and no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of
fraud, if any, within a company have been detected; however, our CEO and Principal Financial Officer believes our controls and
procedures provide reasonable assurance as set forth above.
Management's Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting
The Management of the Company, which consists solely of Mr. Michael F. Manion, who acts
as both our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer and is the sole Director, is responsible for establishing and maintaining
adequate internal control over financial reporting. Our internal control system was designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding
the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally
accepted accounting principles, and includes those policies and procedures that:
a. Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly
reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets;
b. Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit
preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures
are being made only in accordance with authorization of our Management and directors; and
c. Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized
acquisitions, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
The Company’s internal control system was designed to provide reasonable assurance
to the Company’s Management and Directors regarding the preparation and fair presentation of published financial statements.
Our accounting issues are not complex and indeed quite elementary. Our quarterly and annual reports do in fact reflect accurately
and fairly the financial condition of the company for each period covered. We are reasonably assured and confident regarding the
reliability of our financial reporting and the preparation of our financial statements for external purposes. However, Management
does recognize the existence of several material weaknesses.
Management has assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting
as of December 31, 2011. In making this assessment, Management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations
of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control-Integrated Framework. Based on our assessment and those criteria, we have
concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was effective as of December 31, 2011 even though we noted the existence
of the following material weaknesses:
a. The Company is completely dependent on one person, Mr. Manion, who acts as both chief
executive officer and chief financial officer. Furthermore, Mr. Manion is the sole member of the Board of Directors. Mr. Manion
is also the only source of capital to satisfy the Company’s cash requirements.
b. The Company’s is unable to have sufficient segregation of duties within its accounting
and financial reporting activities. The Company does not have any independent board members, nor does it have an independent audit
committee. The Management has limited public accounting expertise.
c. Brightcube, Inc. had been delinquent in its periodic filings with the Commission
since the Company declared bankruptcy in September of 2002. From 2002 to 2010, the Company’s had failed to file
required interim and annual reports on a timely basis. This failure to file resulted in the Securities and Exchange
Commission issuing an Order Instituting Proceedings (File No. 3-13834). On June 7, 2010, these proceedings resulted in the
revocation of our common stock registration pursuant to Section 12(j) of the Exchange Act. These circumstances constitute
material weaknesses in the Company’s corporate governance structure.
This annual report does not include an attestation report of the company’s registered
public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation
by the Company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission
that permit the Company to provide only Management’s report in this annual report.
Action Taken to Address Material Weaknesses in Disclosure and Procedures
We have initiated measures to remedy the identified material weaknesses. Management recognized
the weaknesses of inadequate segregation of duties consistent with control objectives due to our small size and limited resources
but believes that compensating controls are in place to mitigate the risks associated with the lack of segregation of duties.
Compensating controls include outsourcing certain financial functions to an
independent contractor. The Company has utilized a third party independent contractor to review the preparation of its
financial statements. We have also identified an outside resource to assist in the timely and accurate filing of our
financial reports to ensure that the information required to be disclosed by the issuer in the reports it files or submits
under the Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Commission’s
rules and forms. In light of the Company’s financial situation and limited operations, Management will periodically
re-evaluate this situation including implementation of additional procedures.
Readers are cautioned that internal control over financial reporting, no matter how well
designed, has inherent limitations and may not prevent or detect misstatements. Therefore, even effective internal control over
financial reporting can only provide reasonable assurance with respect to the financial statement preparation and presentation.
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting for the
three-months ended December 31, 2011 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our
internal control over financial reporting. Based on an assessment carried out January 6, 2012, management believes that, as
of December 31, 2011, our internal control over financial reporting was effective.
