PART I


Overview

We are a Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites (“VIPPS”) accredited retail mail-order pharmacy and healthcare e-commerce company that sells discounted generic and brand name prescription drugs, as well as, over-the-counter (OTC) medical products. Our web address is http://www.healthwarehouse.com. At present, we sell:
 
●  
a range of prescription drugs both brand name and generic (we are licensed as a mail-order pharmacy for sales to 50 states and the District of Columbia);
 
●  
diabetic supplies including glucometers, lancets, syringes and test strips;
 
●  
OTC medications covering a range of conditions from allergy and sinus to pain and fever to smoking cessation aids;
 
●  
home medical supplies including incontinence supplies, first aid kits and mobility aids; and
 
●  
diet and nutritional products including supplements, weight loss aids, and vitamins and minerals.
 
Our objectives are to make the pharmaceutical supply chain more efficient and to pass the savings on to the consumer.  We are becoming known by consumers as a convenient, reliable, discount provider of over-the-counter products and prescription medications. We intend to continue to expand our product line as our business grows. We are presently licensed as a mail-order pharmacy for sales to 50 states and the District of Columbia.
 
Our customers include uninsured, under-insured, and insured consumers with high insurance co-payments who rely on our service for their daily medications. With many brand name drug patents expiring over the next several years and a general trend of rising insurance co-payments, our service is expanding to mainstream insured consumers of prescription medications, as the market continues to move away from brand name prescription drugs to generics.  Once the patent on a branded drug has expired, we can typically sell its generic equivalent for less than the purchaser’s insurance co-payment.  Accordingly, we are focused on the cash paying customers and do not accept consumer insurance payment.
 
Recent Developments
 
On April 12, 2012, the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm (the “Auditors”) informed the Board of Directors that it would not be able to complete its audit of the Company’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011 before the Company’s Rule 12b-25 extension for filing its Form 10-K for that period expired.  The Auditors indicated that, primarily due to material weaknesses and other deficiencies in the Company’s control environment, including material weaknesses and other deficiencies that the Company has previously disclosed, they were unable to reach conclusions on unresolved items in their audit.  Although the Auditors had not concluded that an illegal act had occurred, because the Company’s weak control environment and unresolved items suggested a potential for the misappropriation of Company assets, the Auditors recommended that the Board engage an independent third-party to review the unresolved items and assist it with identifying and remediating the control deficiencies.
 
Accordingly, the non-management members of the Board of Directors conducted a review of the unresolved items and control deficiencies identified by the Auditors and related matters (the “Review”) with the assistance of the independent third-party.  Based on the results of the Review, the directors concluded that certain matters identified during the Review required remediation.  These matters are discussed below.

  
Between 2009 and April 2012, an employee who is the son of the managing member of a limited liability company that beneficially owned approximately 12% (now under 5%) of the Company’s Common Stock received advances from the Company in various forms, including the unauthorized provision of fulfillment services at no charge to a business partly owned by a member of his household.  The directors determined that not all these were authorized in accordance with the Company’s policy on related party transactions, documented appropriately or recorded correctly in the Company’s accounting system.  As a result, the Company was not able to monitor the outstanding amount of these advances or ascertain their validity on a continuous basis.  At the height, the balance of these advances totaled $391,468 including interest. The employee has voluntarily resigned from the Company, repaid $235,000 of the outstanding balance, given the Company a demand note, payable after December 1, 2012, for approximately $140,000, and provided security for a portion of his repayment obligation.  On December 31, 2012, the Company established a $137,610 reserve against the unsecured balance. The Company continues to pursue all avenues of collection. See “Related Party Transactions.”
 
 
 

 
 
 

 

  
The Company’s controls, policies and procedures relating to the use of Company credit cards and Company bank accounts and the reimbursement of employee business expenses were not adequate to ensure that all relevant transactions were authorized in accordance with Company policy, documented appropriately or recorded correctly in the Company’s accounting system.

  
Flaws in the Company’s management information system, including a lack of integration between the systems that report payments and record shipments, and the limited accounting resources available to the Company, prevented the Company from initially reconciling, as of December 31, 2011, accounts used to track timing differences related to amounts due from the Company’s credit card processors, prepaid inventory and inventory that had not been invoiced by the supplier. Such amounts were ultimately reconciled with the assistance of the independent third-party.

These items were identified and corrected before the Company issued its financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011 and therefore did not result in the misstatement of any amounts for that period.  These items also did not materially affect any previously issued financial statements.  During the Review, the directors identified material weaknesses and other deficiencies in the Company’s internal controls, and the Company has previously disclosed additional material weaknesses and control deficiencies.  These material weaknesses and other deficiencies in the Company’s internal controls primarily relate to the Company’s need for additional accounting personnel with sufficient supervisory and technical expertise and the Company’s lack of adequate policies, procedures and monitoring in certain areas.  See Part II-Item 9A, “Controls and Procedures.”

After failing to file our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 on a timely basis, our Common Stock was no longer traded on the OTCQB market tier and it began to trade on the OTC Pink market tier. Furthermore, on or about April 16, 2012, we lost our Rule 144(i)(2) exemption which prevents the sale of restricted stock into the public market. This could adversely affect our stockholders’ ability to sell our shares.

On September 24, 2012, Patrick E. Delaney resigned as Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Secretary.

On September 24, 2012, Eduardo Altamirano was appointed the Company's Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Secretary.  On April 15, 2013, he resigned from all of his positions.

During 2012, we entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with various accredited investors, under which we sold the investors a total of 116,670 shares of our Common Stock at $4.50 per share, for aggregate proceeds of $525,004.  The net proceeds from this sale of Common Stock were used for general working capital purposes.

On December 31, 2012 and January 15, 2013, we failed to make required payments aggregating $3,000,000 in principal and approximately $350,000 of accrued interest due on certain notes and convertible note agreements.  Accordingly, we were in default of our obligations under the loan documents.

In February and April 2013, we (a) issued an aggregate of 3,501,975 units at $1.00 per unit in two private placements for aggregate proceeds of $3,501,975 (including $500,000 from our Chief Executive Officer); and (b) issued 833,000 units at a price of $1.00 per unit in satisfaction of an aggregate $833,000 of notes payable, other advances from stockholders and accounts payable outstanding. Each unit consists of (i) one share of our Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share, and (ii) five-year warrants to purchase three shares of our Common Stock at an exercise price of $0.25 per share. Substantially all of these proceeds were used by us to satisfy our obligations under the notes and convertible notes payable which were previously in default.

On February 13, 2013, we received a Notice of Redemption of our Series C Redeemable Preferred Stock aggregating $1,000,000. We must now apply all of our assets to redemption of the Series C Preferred Stock and to no other corporate purpose, except to the extent prohibited by Delaware law governing distributions to stockholders (we are not permitted to utilize those assets required to pay our debts as they come due and those assets required to continue as a going concern toward the redemption).  We are currently reviewing our alternatives, including, but not limited to, raising capital in order to satisfy our obligations related to the Series C Redeemable Preferred Stock. There is no assurance that our plan will be successful or that we will be able to satisfy the redemption notice.

 
 
 

 


 
On March 28, 2013, we entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “2013 Loan Agreement”) with a lender (the “2013 Lender”). Under the terms of the Loan Agreement, we borrowed $500,000 from the 2013 Lender (the “2013 Loan”). The 2013 Loan is evidenced by a promissory note (the “2013 Note”), and bears interest on the unpaid principal balance of the Note until the full amount of principal has been paid at a floating rate equal to the Prime Rate plus four and one-quarter percent (4.25%) per annum with a default rate equal to five percent (5.0%) per annum above the otherwise applicable interest rate. Under the terms of the 2013 Loan Agreement, we have agreed to make monthly payments of accrued interest on the first day of every month, beginning on May 1, 2013. The principal amount and all accrued interest on the 2013 Note is payable on March 1, 2015. The 2013 Loan may be prepaid in whole or in part at any time by us without penalty. We granted the 2013 Lender a first, priority security interest in all of our assets, in order to secure our obligation to repay the 2013 Loan. The 2013 Loan Agreement contains customary negative covenants restricting our ability to take certain actions without the Lender’s consent, including incurring additional indebtedness, transferring or encumbering assets, paying dividends or making certain other payments, and acquiring other businesses. Upon the occurrence of an event of default, the 2013 Lender has the right to impose interest at a rate (the “Default Rate”) equal to five percent (5.0%) per annum above the otherwise applicable interest rate. The payment of the Loan may be accelerated prior to their maturity dates upon certain specified events of default, including failure to pay, bankruptcy, breach of covenant, and breach of representations and warranties. In consideration of the Loan, we granted the 2013 Lender a five-year warrant to purchase 750,000 shares of Common Stock at a purchase price of $0.35 per share.

Historical Background
 
In March 2007, Hwareh.com, Inc. (“Old HW”), a Delaware corporation formerly named HealthWarehouse.com, Inc., was incorporated to carry on the business of selling OTC products. In November 2007, we began to develop the proprietary software necessary for our business, and in February 2008, version 1.0 of the http://www.healthwarehouse.com website was successfully launched running on our own proprietary software.
 
In March 2008, as part of our expansion into prescription drugs, we completed construction of a full service licensed pharmacy within our warehouse in Loveland, Ohio. This pharmacy passed inspection by the Ohio State Pharmacy Board in April 2008.
 
On May 14, 2009, we completed a share exchange transaction (the “Exchange”) with Clacendix, Inc. (“Clacendix”). At the time, Clacendix existed as a public shell company with no operations that was seeking a target company with which to merge or to complete a business combination.
 
As a result of the Exchange, Old HW became our subsidiary, with Old HW’s former stockholders acquiring approximately 82.4% of the then outstanding shares of our Common Stock.  Effective August 5, 2009, we changed our corporate name to HealthWarehouse.com, Inc., simultaneously with our name change, we changed the corporate name of our subsidiary to Hwareh.com, Inc.  In connection with the name change, we also obtained a new ticker symbol for quotation, and our Common Stock traded on the OTCQB Market Tier under the symbol “HEWA”.
 
On July 16, 2010, we filed a Certificate of Amendment to our Certificate of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware.  The Certificate of Amendment effected a reverse split or combination of our Common Stock of one (1) share for every twenty (20) shares outstanding (the “Reverse Split”).  As a result of the Reverse Split, every twenty (20) shares of Common Stock outstanding before the Reverse Split represents one share of Common Stock after the Reverse Split, with any fractional shares rounded up to the next whole share.  The Certificate of Amendment also reduced the number of authorized shares of the Company’s Common Stock from 750,000,000 to 50,000,000.  Unless otherwise specifically indicated, all share numbers and all share price numbers presented in this Annual Report on Form 10-K have been adjusted to reflect the Reverse Split.
 
On February 14, 2011, Hocks Acquisition Corporation (“Hocks Acquisition”), a wholly-owned subsidiary we formed for the purpose of the acquisition, entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement (the “Asset Purchase Agreement”) with Hocks Pharmacy Inc., an Ohio corporation (“Hocks Pharmacy”),  to purchase, for $200,000 in cash all of the inventory and fixed assets (the “Purchased Assets”) owned by Hocks Pharmacy and used in the operation of its internet pharmacy business (the “Internet Business).  The Internet Business consists primarily of the internet sale of over-the-counter health and medical products and supplies.   That same day, we acquired all of the intangible assets of the Internet Business, including domain names and customer accounts, in a reverse merger of Hocks Acquisition into Hocks.com Inc. (“Hocks.com”), a newly formed Ohio corporation and then wholly-owned subsidiary of Hocks Pharmacy.  As a result, Hocks.com Inc. became our wholly-owned subsidiary.
 
 
 
 

 


 
On June 15, 2011, the Company commenced a lease on a new facility in Florence, KY. On August 1, 2011, the Company transferred its operations to the new facility. In connection with this move, on February 23, 2012, the Company obtained from the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority a commitment for $500,000 and a letter of intent for an additional $500,000 of incentive financing.  The Company must meet certain conditions in order to obtain the full amount of these incentives, including the posting of collateral and the creation of 448 new, full-time jobs for Kentucky residents, half of which must be created in the first two years and maintained for an additional three years after the expiration of the first three year period. As of the filing date of this report, the Company does not intend to pursue the aforementioned financing.

On August 3, 2011, we entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with three affiliated accredited investors, under which we sold the investors a total of 428,572 shares of our Common Stock at $3.50 per share, for an aggregate price of $1,500,000.  The net proceeds from this sale of Common Stock were used to expand our online presence, upgrade our technology infrastructure, and pay existing indebtedness and accrued expenses, and for general working capital purposes.

On September 2, 2011, we entered into a Loan and Security Agreement (the “2011 Loan Agreement”) with two lenders from a previous loan (the “Lenders”).  Under the terms of the 2011 Loan Agreement, we borrowed $1,500,000 from each lender for a total of $3,000,000 (the “2011 Loans”).  The 2011 Loans are evidenced by non-convertible, secured promissory notes, bearing interest at 7% per annum, payable at maturity.  The principal amount and all accrued interest on the 2011 Loans were payable on January 15, 2013, or earlier on an event of default or a sale or liquidation of the Company.  In connection with the 2011 Loans, we also granted each Lender a warrant to purchase 250,000 shares of Common Stock at a purchase price of $2.90 per share.  Each warrant may be exercised in whole or in part and from time to time for a term of five years from its grant date.  In addition, from September 2 through September 16, 2011, we sold a total of 168,970 shares of Common Stock to nine accredited investors at a purchase price of $2.90 per share, for an aggregate price of $490,000.  The net proceeds from the 2011 Loans and the additional sales of Common Stock were used to purchase 1,179,212 shares of our Common Stock from Rock Castle Holdings, LLC, a more than 10% stockholder of the Company (“Rock Castle”), which constituted all of the outstanding shares of Common Stock owned by Rock Castle.  The purchase price was $2.90 per share, for an aggregate price of $3,419,715. As previously discussed, the Company repaid the 2011 Loans in February 2013.

On October 17, 2011, we entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “2011 Series C Purchase Agreement”) with three affiliated accredited investors, under which we sold the investors a total of 10,000 newly authorized shares of $0.001 par value Series C Preferred Stock (the “Series C Preferred Stock”) at $100.00 per share, for an aggregate price of $1,000,000. The Series C Preferred Stock has voting rights equal to one vote for each share held, has a liquidation preference equal to its purchase price, has redemption rights available on or after January 15, 2013, are non-convertible and does not pay dividends. Under the terms of the 2011 Series C Purchase Agreement, we also issued warrants to the investors, pro rata to their investment amounts, to purchase an aggregate of 270,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock at an exercise price of $2.90 per share.  Each warrant may be exercised in whole or in part and from time to time for a term of five years from its grant date.   The holders of the Series C Preferred Stock are entitled to a preferential liquidating distribution upon the sale or liquidation of the Company equal to the original sale price per share.  The net proceeds from the sale of the Series C Preferred Stock were used to pre-pay principal and accrued interest on the 2011 Loans. As previously discussed, in February 2013 the Company received a Notice of Redemption of the Series C Preferred Stock. No assurance can be provided the Company will be able to satisfy the redemption notice.

 
 
 

 


 
Our Business Model
 
Our business model seeks to improve both the efficiency and convenience by which consumers obtain prescription medications.  To increase efficiency, we make efforts to source products from either the manufacturer or wholesaler level, eliminating unnecessary costs associated with distribution. In addition, we distribute medications to the consumer from a single warehouse, as opposed to retail locations, which we believe eliminates unnecessary costs such as rents, inventory, and personnel.  By going directly to the consumer via the Internet, we reduce our marketing expense and increase convenience for consumers, especially those taking maintenance medications for conditions ranging from diabetes to high blood pressure.

Our target is consumers who are uninsured or underinsured, as well as, elderly patients in the Medicare “donut hole”.  In addition, as insured consumers are seeing co-pays rise, many of our medications can be purchased for cash at prices less than their insurance co-pay.

Our Online Retail Mail-Order Pharmacy
 
We operate a full-service retail mail-order pharmacy within our warehouse in Florence, Kentucky, which is near Cincinnati, Ohio.  The pharmacy includes two robotic machines, which can each count and package 1,200 prescriptions per day.  Our pharmacy passed inspection by the Kentucky Board of Pharmacy, and we are presently licensed as a mail-order pharmacy for sales to 50 states and the District of Columbia.
 
Our retail mail-order pharmacy offers the following advantages:
 
●  
Legitimacy.  We have obtained certifications to separate ourselves from the many uncertified “rogue” pharmacies which exist. We are the 19th pharmacy in the U.S. to receive Verified Internet Practice Sites (“VIPPS”) certification, issued by the National Board of Pharmacies (“NABP”). Google, Yahoo, and Bing now all require VIPPS as a requirement to advertise on their sites.
 
●  
Convenience.  Our online store is available to consumers 24 hours a day, 7 days a week through the Internet.  We deliver medications free of charge to any location in the United States including Alaska and Hawaii. We offer 6-month and 12-month supplies of medications to reduce the need for refills. All of our products are also available for purchase by phone. We offer additional convenience to our customers through an easy-to-use website, robust search technology, and a variety of features such as multiple checkout options including Google Checkout.
 
●  
Selection.  Due to our online structure, we are able to offer a significantly broader assortment of products, with greater depth in each product category, because we do not have the shelf display space limitations of brick-and-mortar drugstores.
 
●  
Information.  We provide a broad array of interactive tools and information on our website to help consumers make informed purchasing decisions. Our information services include detailed product information pages, product user manuals and brochures, links to manufacturer websites, detailed product descriptions which contain the manufacturer’s phone number, and customer reviews.  Our customer care representatives are available by phone or email to provide personal guidance and answer customers’ questions.
 
 
 
 

 


 
●  
Privacy.  When shopping at a “brick-and-mortar” drugstore, many consumers may feel embarrassed or uncomfortable about buying items or asking questions that may reveal personally sensitive aspects of their health or lifestyle to pharmacists, store personnel, or other shoppers.  Our customers avoid these problems by shopping from the privacy of their home or office.
 
●  
Value.  Our goal is to offer shoppers a broad assortment of generic drugs and health products with competitive pricing.  We strive to improve our operating efficiencies and to leverage our fixed costs so that we can pass along the savings to our customers in the form of lower prices and exclusive deals.  Since we source drugs direct from the manufacturer at the wholesale level, we believe that we have lower costs than traditional pharmacies which allows us to provide consumers with the better values.  We also strive to inform customers of additional cost-saving opportunities when they become available.  For example, we show the generic equivalents of all brand name products.
 
●  
Customer Service.  Our focus has been on customer service and we endeavor to lead the industry in our policies and procedures.  We currently offer a satisfaction guarantee with what we believe is an industry-leading 90-day return policy for all over the counter orders with no restocking fees, and 100% free standard shipping on all orders. We are prevented by law from accepting returns for any prescription medication. We received the BizRate Circle of Excellence Award in 2009, 2010 and 2011 for exceptional customer service and satisfaction.
 
Our customer support representatives operate from our call center in Florence, Kentucky.  Our customer support specialists are available 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday, via e-mail, fax or telephone to handle customer inquiries and assist customers in finding desired products.  Our online Help Center outlines store policies and provides answers to customers’ frequently asked questions.
 
We ship our products to all 50 states, the U.S. Territories, and APO/FPO military and embassy addresses. We process all orders from our distribution center in Florence, Kentucky near Cincinnati, Ohio. We based our logistics operation there to maintain proximity to UPS, located 90 miles away in Louisville, Kentucky.  Processing from this location allows us to reach up to 80% of the U.S. population by standard ground shipping in two days.  In order to try to maintain high customer satisfaction ratings and quality control over the process, we avoid drop shipping orders.  Due to the relatively short lead time required to fill orders for our products, usually 24 to 48 hours, order backlog has not proven material to our business.
 
Marketing and Sales
 
Our marketing strategy aims to build brand recognition, increase customer traffic to our online store, add new customers, build strong customer loyalty, maximize repeat purchases and develop incremental revenue opportunities.  It is centered on Internet-based advertising.
 
Our online advertising campaigns focus on the following areas:
 
●  
Search Engines: Google, Bing and Yahoo;
 
●  
Price Comparison Engines: Become, Google Product Search, NexTag, PriceGrabber.com, Pronto, Shopping.com, Shopzilla, Smarter and Yahoo Shopping; and
 
●  
Social Networking: Facebook, Foursquare and Twitter.
 
To date, our online advertising has proven to be an effective sales strategy for our business.  Apart from any personnel involved with our online advertising campaigns, we do not have a dedicated sales force.
 
Suppliers
 
There are a number of suppliers available for the pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical products that we sell. Our principal suppliers are Amerisource Bergen and Cardinal Health as well as many direct manufacturers like Accord, Allison Medical, Inc., Dava, Torrent, Perrigo, Camber and Carlsbad. While we source our supplies from a limited number of suppliers, we do not believe that our business is dependent on any one supplier since the products that we sell are readily available from a number of alternative suppliers.  If a supplier, even if a significant supplier, were to no longer be available to us, we believe that we could source replacement product through one or more alternative suppliers without having a significant effect on our business model.
 
 
 
 


 


 
Customers
 
We sell directly to individual consumers who purchase prescription medications and OTC products. We also work with pharmacy benefit managers, self-insured employers and insurance companies to provide their members with prescription medications.
 
Seasonality
 
Historically, the largest amount of our net sales has occurred in the fourth quarter.  As a result, we sometimes experience an increase in shipping cost due to complimentary upgrades, split-shipments, and additional long-zone shipments necessary to ensure timely delivery during this time of year.
 
Competition
 
The market for prescription and OTC health products is intensely competitive and highly fragmented.  Our competitors in the segment include chain drugstores, mail order pharmacies, pharmacy benefits managers (“PBMs”), mass market retailers, warehouse clubs and supermarkets. Many of these potential competitors in the market are also established organizations with greater access to resources and capital than we have. In addition, we face competition from foreign online pharmacies that can often sell drugs to U.S. residents at a lower price because they do not comply with U.S. pharmacy regulations, are not subject to U.S. regulatory oversight, or both. We also compete with Internet portals and online service providers that feature shopping services and with other online or mail-order retailers that offer products similar or the same to those that we sell.
 
We believe that the principal competitive factors in our market include brand awareness and preference, company credibility, product selection and availability, convenience, price, actual or perceived value, website features, functionality and performance, ease of purchasing, customer service, privacy, quality and quantity of information supporting purchase decisions (such as product information and reviews), and reliability and speed of order shipment.
 
Intellectual Property and Technology
 
We filed for a trademark on the name “HealthWarehouse.com” on August 14, 2007 with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, which trademark was granted with a registration date of May 19, 2009.  On February 14, 2011, we acquired the registered trademark “Hocks.com” in connection with our purchase of the online reseller business of Hocks Pharmacy Inc.  We are continuing to use the Hocks.com trademark in connection with the online sale of over-the-counter health and medical supplies.  We also rely on trade secret law and contractual restrictions to protect our intellectual property, and we do not intend to seek patent or copyright protection for our intellectual property at this time.
 
We have implemented a broad array of services and systems for website management, product searching, customer interaction, transaction processing, and order fulfillment functions. These services and systems use a combination of our own proprietary technologies, open-source technologies and commercially-available, licensed technologies.
 
We focus our internal development efforts on creating and enhancing the specialized, proprietary software that is unique to our business.  For example, our core merchandise catalog, as well as our customer interaction, order collection, fulfillment and back-end systems are proprietary to us. Our systems are designed to provide real-time connectivity to our distribution center systems for both pharmacy and OTC products. They include an inventory tracking system, a real-time order tracking system, an executive information system and an inventory replenishment system.
 
Our website at http://www.healthwarehouse.com is hosted on the Amazon EC2 platform (“EC2”) due to the platform’s perceived cost effectiveness and scalability. EC2 allows us to pay only for bandwidth used. In addition, due to Amazon’s lengthy experience at running servers capable of serving one of the largest commerce sites on the web, our site remains scalable on days where our traffic spikes.
 
Our website was developed using 100% open source code. We use a 100% open source platform which runs on Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP (“LAMP”).
 
In addition, we have utilized open source software from other vendors to speed up our development time. For management of our content and commerce catalog, we utilize Magento, an open source e-commerce platform.  For our reporting and tools, we utilize Google Analytics. Our checkout process has two options including Google Checkout for OTC orders and our own proprietary checkout for OTC and prescription orders.
 
 
 
 

 


 
Government Regulation
 
Federal and state laws and regulations govern many aspects of our business and are specific to pharmacies and the sale of OTC drugs. Our pharmacy passed inspection by the Kentucky Board of Pharmacy and we are presently licensed as a mail-order pharmacy for sales to 50 states and the District of Columbia. We ship our non-prescription products to all 50 states, the U.S. Territories, and APO/FPO military and embassy addresses.
 
We believe we are in substantial compliance with all existing legal and regulatory requirements material to the operation of our business.  We have standard operating procedures and controls designed to assist in ensuring compliance with existing contractual requirements and state and federal law. We diligently monitor and audit our adherence to these procedures and controls, and we take prompt corrective and disciplinary action when appropriate. However, we cannot predict how courts or regulatory agencies may interpret existing laws or regulations or what additional federal or state legislation or regulatory initiatives may be enacted in the future regarding healthcare or the pharmacy industry, and the application of complex standards to the operation of our business creates areas of uncertainty.
 
In addition, although we presently do not accept insurance reimbursement nor do we participate in federal and state programs such as Medicare and Medicaid, this may change in the future. If in the future we do accept reimbursement from commercial or governmental payers, we would be subject to extensive government regulation including numerous state and federal laws and corresponding regulations directed at preventing fraud and abuse and regulating reimbursement.
 
Among the federal and state laws and regulations that currently affect or may reasonably affect in the future aspects of our business are the following:
 
Regulation of Our Pharmacy Operations
 
The practice of pharmacy is generally regulated at the state level by state boards of pharmacy. Our pharmacy must be licensed in the state in which it is located. In some states, regulations require compliance with standards promulgated by the United States Pharmacopeia (“USP”).  The USP creates standards in the packaging, storage and shipping of pharmaceuticals.  Also, many of the states where we deliver pharmaceuticals, including controlled substances, have laws and regulations that require out-of-state mail-order pharmacies to register with that state’s board of pharmacy or similar regulatory body. In addition, some states have proposed laws to regulate online pharmacies, and we may be subject to this legislation if it is passed. Furthermore, if our pharmacy dispenses durable medical equipment items, such as infusion pumps, that bear a federal legend requiring dispensing pursuant to a prescription, we would also be regulated by applicable state and federal durable medical equipment laws.
 
Federal agencies further regulate our pharmacy operations. Pharmacies must register with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and individual state controlled substance authorities in order to dispense controlled substances. We sell controlled substances and therefore require a DEA license and maintain a DEA license. In addition, the FDA inspects facilities in connection with procedures to effect recalls of prescription drugs. The Federal Trade Commission (“FTC”) also has requirements for mail-order sellers of goods. The U.S. Postal Service (“USPS”) has statutory authority to restrict the transmission of drugs and medicines through the mail to a degree that could have an adverse effect on our mail-order operations.  The USPS historically has exercised this statutory authority only with respect to controlled substances. If the USPS restricts our ability to deliver drugs through the mail, alternative means of delivery are available to us.  However, alternative means of delivery could be significantly more expensive. The Department of Transportation has regulatory authority to impose restrictions on drugs inserted in the stream of commerce. These regulations generally do not apply to the USPS and its operations.
 
Additionally, under the Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 and related state and local regulations, our pharmacists are required to offer counseling to our customers about medication, dosage, delivery systems, common side effects, adverse effects or interactions and therapeutic contraindications, proper storage, prescription refill and other information deemed significant by the pharmacists.  We are also subject to requirements under the Controlled Substances Act and federal DEA regulations, as well as related state and local laws and regulations, relating to our pharmacy operations, including registration, security, recordkeeping and reporting requirements related to the purchase, storage and dispensing of controlled substances, prescription drugs and some OTC drugs.

“Compendial standards,” which can also be called “official compendium,” means the standards for drugs related to strength, purity, weight, quality, labeling and packing contained in the USP, official National Formulary, or any supplement to any of them. Under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act of 1938, a drug recognized by the Homeopathic Pharmacopeia of the United States must meet all compendial standards and labeling requirements contained therein, or it will be considered adulterated (for example, lacking appropriate strength, quality or purity; or containing poisonous or unsanitary ingredients) or misbranded (for example, having a false or misleading label; or a label containing an inaccurate description of contents).  If we add homeopathic remedies to our product offerings, we will be required to comply with the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. The distribution of adulterated or misbranded homeopathic remedies or other drugs is prohibited under the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act, and violations could result in substantial fines and other monetary penalties, seizure of the misbranded or adulterated items, and/or criminal sanctions.
 
We also are required to comply with the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act (“DSHEA”) when selling dietary supplements and vitamins.  The DSHEA generally governs the production, sale and marketing (including labeling) of dietary supplements, and it requires reporting to the FDA of certain adverse events regarding dietary supplements.
 
We believe that our operations have the appropriate licenses required under the laws of the states in which they are located and that we conduct our pharmacy operations in accordance with the laws and regulations of these states.
 
Drug Importation
 
In the face of escalating costs for plan sponsors providing a prescription drug benefit for their employees, and uninsured individuals seeking to lower their drug costs, the issue of importing drugs from Canada or other foreign countries has received significant attention. Drug importation, sometimes called drug re-importation, occurs when prescription medicines from other countries are imported for personal use or commercial distribution. Individual importation activities are generally prohibited under U.S. law, and the FDA has issued warnings and safety alerts to a number of entities seeking to promote or facilitate systematic importation activities.  However, there has been considerable legislative and political activity seeking to change the FDA requirements to enable drug importation, and we are evaluating appropriate actions if such legislation were to be enacted.
 
Health Management Services Regulation
 
All states regulate the practice of medicine and require licensing under applicable state law. It is not our intent to practice medicine and we have tried to structure our website and our business to avoid violation of state licensing requirements.  However, the application of this area of the law to Internet services such as ours is not well established and, accordingly, a state regulatory authority could at some time allege that some portion of our business violates these statutes. Any such allegation could harm our business.  Further, any liability based on a determination that we engaged in the unlawful practice of medicine may be excluded from coverage under the terms of our general liability insurance policy.
 
Consumer Protection Laws
 
Most states have consumer protection laws designed to ensure that information provided to consumers is adequate, fair and not misleading. We believe that our practices conform to the requirements of state consumer protection laws. However, we may be subject to further scrutiny under these laws as they are often interpreted broadly.
 
Regulation Relating to Data Transmission and Confidentiality of Patient Identifiable Information
 
Dispensing of prescriptions and management of prescription drug benefits require the ability to utilize patient-specific information. Government regulation of the use of patient identifiable information has grown substantially over the past several years.  At the federal level, Congress enacted the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (“HIPAA”), which extensively regulates the transmission, use and disclosure of health information by all participants in healthcare delivery, including physicians, hospitals, insurers and other payers.  To the extent that our pharmacy operations engage in certain electronic transactions (including claims for reimbursement by third-party payers), we may be a covered entity which is directly subject to these requirements.  Additionally, regulation of the use of patient-identifiable information is likely to increase. Congress is currently reviewing proposals that would alter HIPAA, which would create additional administrative burdens. Many states have passed or are considering laws addressing the use and disclosure of health information. These proposals vary widely, some relating to only certain types of information, others to only certain uses, and yet others to only certain types of entities.  These laws and regulations have a significant impact on our operations, products and services, and compliance with them is a major operational requirement.  Regulations and legislation that severely restrict or prohibit our use of patient identifiable information could materially adversely affect our business.

Sanctions for failing to comply with HIPAA standards include criminal and civil penalties. If we are found to have violated any state or federal statute or regulation with regard to the confidentiality, dissemination or use of patient medical information, we could be liable for significant damages, fines or penalties.
 
Fraudulent Billing, Anti-Kickback, Stark, Civil Monetary Penalties and False Claims Laws and Regulations
 
Our operations may in the future participate in federal and state programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. If we do, we would be subject to extensive government regulation including numerous state and federal laws and corresponding regulations directed at preventing fraud and abuse and regulating reimbursement. The government’s Medicare and Medicaid regulations are complex and sometimes subjective and therefore may require our management’s interpretation. If we were to participate in federal and state programs such as Medicare and Medicaid, our compliance with Medicare and Medicaid regulations may be reviewed by federal or state agencies, including the Department of Health and Human Services’ (“HHS”) Office of the Inspector General (“OIG”), the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (“CMS”), the Department of Justice (“DOJ”), and the FDA. To ensure compliance with Medicare, Medicaid and other regulations, government agencies conduct periodic audits to ensure compliance with various supplier standards and billing requirements. Similarly, regional health insurance carriers routinely conduct audits and request patient records and other documents to support claims submitted for payment.
 
Federal law prohibits the payment, offer, receipt or solicitation of any remuneration that is knowingly and willfully intended to induce the referral of Medicare, Medicaid or other federal healthcare program beneficiaries for the purchase, lease, ordering or recommendation of the purchase, lease or ordering of items or services reimbursable under federal healthcare programs. These laws are commonly referred to as anti-remuneration or anti-kickback laws. Several states also have similar laws, known as “all payer” statutes, which impose anti-kickback prohibitions on services covered by any third-party payer (whether or not a federal healthcare program). Anti-kickback laws vary between states, and courts have rarely interpreted them.  If in the future we accept third-party reimbursement, we may be subject to these laws.
 
Courts, the OIG and some administrative tribunals have broadly interpreted the federal anti-kickback statute and regulations.  Courts have ruled that a violation of the statute may occur even if only one of the purposes of a payment arrangement is to induce patient referrals or purchases.  Should we enter the government payer sector, it is possible that our current practices in the commercial sector may not be appropriate in the government payer sector.
 
The Ethics in Patient Referrals Law (“Stark Law”) prohibits physicians from making a referral for certain Medicare-covered health items or services if they, or their family members, have a financial relationship with the entity receiving the referral. No bill may be submitted in connection with a prohibited referral. Violations are punishable by civil monetary penalties upon both the person making the referral and the provider rendering the service. Such persons or entities are also subject to exclusion from Medicare and Medicaid.  Many states have adopted laws similar to the Stark Law, which restrict the ability of physicians to refer patients to entities with which they have a financial relationship.
 
The Federal False Claims Act prohibits the submission of a false claim or the making of a false record or statement in order to secure a reimbursement from a government-sponsored program. In recent years, the federal government has launched several initiatives aimed at uncovering practices that violate false claims or fraudulent billing laws. Civil monetary penalties may be assessed for many types of conduct, including conduct that is outlined in the statutes above and other federal statutes in this section. Under the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005 (“DRA”), states are encouraged to pass state false claims act laws similar to the federal statute.
 
Sanctions for fraudulent billing, kickback violations, Stark Law violations or violations of the False Claims Act include criminal and civil penalties. If we do accept third-party reimbursement and/or participate in federal payer programs in the future and are found to have violated any state or federal kickback, Stark Law or False Claims Act law, we could be liable for significant damages, fines or penalties and potentially be ineligible to participate in federal payer programs.
 
Legislation and Regulation Affecting Drug Prices and Potentially Affecting the Market for Prescription Benefit Plans and Reimbursement for Durable Medical Equipment
 
Recently, the federal government has increased its focus on methods drug manufacturers employ to develop pricing information, which in turn is used in setting payments under the Medicare and Medicaid programs.  One element common to many payment formulas, the use of “average wholesale price” (“AWP”) as a standard pricing unit throughout the industry, has been criticized as not accurately reflecting prices actually charged and paid at the wholesale or retail level. The DOJ is currently conducting, and the House Commerce Committee has conducted, an investigation into the use of AWP for federal program reimbursement, and whether the use of AWP has inflated drug expenditures by the Medicare and Medicaid programs. Federal and state proposals have sought to change the basis for calculating reimbursement of certain drugs by the Medicare and Medicaid programs.

The DRA revised the formula used by the federal government to set the Federal Upper Limit (“FUL”) for multiple source drugs by adopting 250 percent of the average manufacturer’s price (“AMP”) without regard to customary prompt pay discounts to wholesalers for the least costly therapeutic equivalent. On July 17, 2006, HHS published a Final Rule for the Medicaid Prescription Drug Program implementing the DRA in which AMP was defined to exclude discounts and rebates to pharmacy benefit managers and include sales to mail-order and specialty pharmacies in the AMP calculation by manufacturers.
 
These proposals and other legislative or regulatory adjustments that may be made to the program for reimbursement of drugs by Medicare and Medicaid, if implemented, could affect our ability to negotiate discounts with pharmaceutical manufacturers. They could also impact the reimbursement we may receive from government payers in the future should we choose to participate in such programs. In addition, they may affect our relationships with health plans. In some circumstances, they might also impact the reimbursement that we would receive from managed care organizations that contract with government health programs to provide prescription drug benefits or otherwise elect to rely on the revised pricing information. Furthermore, private payers may choose to follow the government’s example and adopt different drug pricing bases. This could affect our ability to negotiate with plans, manufacturers and pharmacies regarding discounts and rebates.
 
Relative to our durable medical equipment operations, The Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement and Modernization Act of 2003 (“DIMA”), established a program for the competitive acquisition of certain covered items of durable medical equipment, prosthetics, orthotics and supplies (“DMEPOS”). Diabetes testing supplies, including test strips and lancets, which are commonly supplied via mail-order delivery, are subject to the competitive acquisition program. Only qualified suppliers that meet defined participation standards specified in the final rule will be permitted to engage in the competitive acquisition program. In 2010, mail-order diabetes testing supplies may be subject to a national or regional program, which would require mail-order suppliers to bid on supplying certain DMEPOS items.
 
Medicare Part D and Part B; State Prescription Drug Assistance Programs
 
The DIMA also offers far-reaching changes to the Medicare program. The DIMA established a new Medicare Part D outpatient prescription drug benefit for over 40 million Americans who are eligible for Medicare. Qualified beneficiaries, including senior citizens and disabled individuals, have had the opportunity to enroll in Medicare Part D since January 1, 2006.
 
In addition, many states have expanded state prescription drug assistance programs to increase access to drugs by those currently without coverage and/or supplement the Medicare Part D benefit of those with coverage to offer options for a seamless benefit.  In accordance with applicable CMS requirements, to participate we may have to enter into agreements with a number of state prescription drug assistance programs and collaborate to coordinate benefits with Medicare Part D plans.
 
If we participate in these state and/or federal payer programs in the future, we will have to comply with the applicable conditions of participation for such plans, may be subject to competitive bidding requirements under such plans, and may be subject to adverse pricing limitations imposed by such plans (including the DRA limits described above).
 
Industry Standards for Pharmacy Operations
 
The National Committee on Quality Assurance, the American Accreditation Health Care Commission (known as “URAC”), the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations and other quasi-regulatory and accrediting bodies have developed standards relating to services performed by pharmacies, including mail order, formulary, drug utilization management and specialty pharmacy. While the actions of these bodies do not have the force of law, pharmacy benefit managers and many clients for pharmacy benefit manager services seek certification from them, as do other third parties. These bodies may influence the federal government or states to adopt requirements or model acts that they promulgate. The federal government and some states incorporate accreditation standards of these bodies, as well as the standards of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy, a coalition of state pharmacy boards, into their drug utilization review regulation. Future initiatives of these bodies are uncertain and resulting standards or legislation could impose restrictions on us in a manner that could significantly impact our business.
 
The National Association of Boards of Pharmacy has also developed the VIPPS program as a model for self-regulation for online pharmacies and we were the 19th pharmacy in the U.S. to receive VIPPS certification.

Employees

           As of July 17, 2013, we employed 41 full-time employees, 2 part-time employees and 2 non-contractual laborers. None of our employees are subject to a collective bargaining agreement and we believe that relations with our employees are good. The Company, from time to time, also utilizes independent contractors to supplement its workforce.
 

Risks Related to the Deficiencies in Our Internal Controls and Our Failure to File Timely Periodic Reports with the SEC.
 
We have identified material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting, and have concluded that our internal controls were not effective as of December 31, 2012 and 2011.  We may be unable to remedy these deficiencies or develop, implement and maintain effective controls in future periods.
 
Based on the review conducted by our non-management directors and management’s annual assessment of our internal controls, we concluded that, as of December 31, 2011, our internal controls over financial reporting were not effective.  As of December 31, 2012, management has concluded that the material weaknesses identified at December 31, 2011 continue to exist and the internal control over financial reporting was still not effective. The specific material weaknesses identified by the directors and management are described in Part II—Item 9A, “Controls and Procedures”.
 
Due to financial constraints, we have not fully developed or implemented a remediation plan to address the material weaknesses and other deficiencies.
 
Even if we are able to fully implement a remediation plan in the future, we cannot assure you that we will be able to remedy these material weaknesses, that additional material weaknesses or other deficiencies in our internal controls will not arise in the future or that our internal controls will be adequate in all cases to prevent us from reporting inaccurate financial information.  A failure in our internal controls could result in material misstatements in our reported financial information or misappropriation of our assets.  Such failures or misstatements could result in investors losing confidence in our reported financial information, which may adversely affect the market price of our common stock or restrict our ability to raise capital.  In addition, we may be subject to investigations by or sanctions from the SEC or other governmental authorities and lawsuits from investors, all of which could adversely affect our results of operations.
 
Our failure to file on time our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 with the SEC limits our access to the public securities markets, and resulted in our common stock being removed from the OTCQB Market Tier, which could adversely affect the liquidity of our common stock.
 
We did not file this Form 10-K with the SEC on time and we have not yet filed our Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2013, which was due on May 15, 2013.  As a consequence, we will be ineligible to use short form registration statements, such as Form S-3, to register securities for sale until we have been timely in filing our periodic reports under the Exchange Act for twelve months.  Although we still may register securities using Form S-1, the extra time and expense of using this form is likely to increase our cost of raising capital in the public markets and may limit our ability to respond quickly to market opportunities.
 
The delay in filing our Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 resulted in the loss of our quotation privileges, on the OTCQB market tier and the liquidity for our common stock could be adversely affected by reducing the ability or willingness of broker-dealers to make a market in or otherwise sell our shares and the ability of our stockholders to sell their shares in the secondary market. Our common stock currently trades on the OTC Pink market tier. Furthermore, on or about April 16, 2012, we lost our Rule 144(i)(2) exemption which prevents the sale of restricted stock into the public market.  This could adversely affect our stockholders ability to sell our shares.

Risks Relating to Our Business and Industry
 
We have a limited operating history, a history of generating significant losses, a substantial working capital deficiency and a stockholders’ deficiency; and may not be able to sustain profitability. The report of our independent registered public accounting firm contains an explanatory paragraph that expresses substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.
 
Old HW, which now constitutes our principal business, was formed in March 2007 and has a limited operating history upon which you can evaluate our business and prospects. To date, we have not been profitable, and we may never achieve profitability on a full-year or consistent basis. We incurred net losses of $5,574,775 and $5,712,199 for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. On February 13, 2013, we received a Notice of Redemption of our Series C Redeemable Preferred Stock aggregating $1,000,000. The report of our independent registered public accounting firm with respect to our financial statements as of December 31, 2012  and for the year then ended indicates that our financial statements have been prepared assuming that we will continue as a going concern.  The report also states that, we have incurred significant operating losses and we need to raise additional funds in order to meet our obligations and sustain operations.  The report states that these conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Our plans in regard to these matters are described in footnote 2 to our audited financial statements as of December 31, 2012 and for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011.  Our financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. If our plans or assumptions change or prove to be inaccurate, we may continue to incur net losses in 2013, and possibly longer.  As a result, investors may lose all or a part of their investment.
 
We may experience significant fluctuations in our operating results and rate of growth.
 
Our evolving business model and the unpredictability of our industry make it difficult for us to forecast accurately the level or source of our revenues and our rate of growth. Our financial projections are based on assumptions and estimates that inherently are subject to significant business, economic, competitive, regulatory and operational uncertainties, contingencies and risks, many of which are beyond our control. Our projections assume the success of our business strategy. The success of this strategy is subject to uncertainties and contingencies beyond our control, and we cannot assure you that the strategy will be successful or that the anticipated benefits from the strategy will be realized in the manner or during the periods reflected in our projections or at all. These uncertainties may result in material changes in our financial condition and results of operations, which may differ materially from our projections.
 
Our revenues and operating results may vary significantly from quarter to quarter.
 
Our revenues and operating results may vary significantly from quarter to quarter due to a number of factors, including:
 
●  
our ability to retain and increase sales to existing customers, attract new customers, and satisfy our customers’ demands;
 
●  
the frequency and size of customer orders and the quantity and mix of OTC and prescription products our customers purchase;
 
●  
changes in demand with respect to existing and new OTC and prescription products;
 
●  
changes in consumer acceptance and usage of the Internet, online services, and e-commerce;
 
●  
the price we charge for our OTC and prescription products and for shipping those products, or changes in our pricing policies or the pricing policies of our competitors;
 
●  
the extent to which we offer free shipping or other promotional discounts to our customers;
 
●  
our ability to acquire merchandise, manage inventory, and fulfill orders;
 
●  
technical difficulties, system downtime, or interruptions;
 
●  
timing and costs of upgrades and developments in our systems and infrastructure;
 
●  
timing and costs of marketing and other investments;
 
●  
disruptions in service by shipping carriers;
 
●  
the introduction by our competitors of new websites, products, or services;
 
●  
the extent of reimbursements available from third-party payers; and
 
●  
changes in government regulation.
 
In addition, our operating expenses are largely based on anticipated revenue trends and a high percentage of our expenses are fixed in the short term.  As a result, a delay in generating or recognizing revenue for any reason could result in substantial additional operating losses.

We face significant competition from both traditional and online domestic pharmaceutical and medical product retailers.
 
The market segments in which we compete are rapidly evolving and intensely competitive, and we have many competitors in different industries, including both the retail and e-commerce services industries. These competitors include chain drugstores, mass market retailers, warehouse clubs, supermarkets, specialty retailers, major department stores, insurers and health care providers, mail-order pharmacies, Internet portals and online service providers that feature shopping services, and various online stores that offer products within one or more of our product categories. Many of our current and potential competitors have longer operating histories, larger customer bases, greater brand recognition, and significantly greater financial, marketing, and other resources than we have.  They may be able to secure merchandise from vendors on more favorable terms, operate with a lower cost structure, adopt more aggressive pricing policies, or devote more resources to technology development and marketing than we do. In addition, other companies in the retail and e-commerce service industries may enter into business combinations or alliances that would strengthen their competitive positions and prevent them, their affiliated companies, or their strategic partners from entering into relationships with us. For example, our inability to enter into or maintain relationships with major insurance companies or managed care organizations could be a major competitive disadvantage to us.
 
We face competition from online pharmacies outside the United States.
 
Although it is currently illegal to re-import prescription drugs into the United States from any foreign country, we nonetheless face competition from online pharmacies outside the United States. A growing number of U.S. consumers seek to fill their prescriptions through Canadian and other foreign online pharmacies, and a number of state and local governments have set up websites directing their constituents to Canadian pharmacies. The FDA has taken only limited action to date, and may not take aggressive action in the future, against those who illegally re-import prescription drugs or support or facilitate illegal re-importation.  In the U.S. Congress, legislation allowing for re-importation of prescription drugs by individuals for personal use has repeatedly been introduced.  If such legislation were to be enacted, or if consumers increasingly use foreign-based online prescription drug websites instead of U.S.-based online pharmacies, such as ours, to fill their prescription needs, our business and operating results could be harmed.
 
We may be unable to increase the migration of consumers of health and pharmacy products from brick-and-mortar stores to our online solution, which would harm our revenues and prevent us from becoming profitable.
 
If we do not attract and retain higher volumes of customers to our Internet store at a reasonable cost, we will not be able to increase our revenues or achieve consistent profitability. Our success depends on our ability to continue to convert a large number of customers from traditional shopping methods to online shopping for health and pharmacy products. Specific factors that could prevent widespread customer acceptance of our online solution include:
 
●  
shipping charges, which do not apply to purchases made at a “brick-and-mortar” store;
 
●  
delivery time associated with Internet orders, as compared to the immediate receipt of products at a brick-and-mortar store;
 
●

Changing competitive forces within the healthcare industry may adversely affect our ability to obtain and sustain a competitive advantage.
 
In recent years, pharmaceutical suppliers have been subject to increasing consolidation. As a result, a small number of very large companies control a significant share of the market. Accordingly, we depend on fewer suppliers for our products and therefore we may be less able to negotiate price terms with suppliers. Many healthcare organizations also have consolidated to create larger healthcare enterprises with greater market power. If this consolidation trend continues, it could reduce the size of our target market and give the resulting enterprises greater bargaining power, which may lead to erosion of the prices for our products and services.  Additionally, erosion of our competitive advantage may result from increased competition in our target market through supply and distribution methods similar to our own by those companies with which we currently compete but who have a more established operating history.  Furthermore, changes in the healthcare industry’s or our pharmaceutical suppliers’ pricing, selling, inventory, distribution or supply policies or practices could significantly reduce our revenues and net income.
 
If our marketing efforts are not effective at attracting and retaining customers at an acceptable cost, we will be unable to achieve profitability.
 
If we do not maintain our brand and continue to increase awareness of our Internet shopping presence, we may not build a critical mass of customers. Promoting and positioning our brand depends largely on the success of our marketing efforts and our ability to provide consistent, high quality customer experiences. We believe that, because we are a small company with low public brand awareness, achieving significant market awareness will require significant marketing expense. To promote our brand and our products and services, we have incurred and expect to continue to incur substantial expense in our marketing efforts both to attract and to retain customers. Our promotional activities may not be effective at building our brand awareness and customer base to the extent necessary to generate sufficient revenue to become consistently profitable. Search engine and other online marketing initiatives comprise a substantial part of our marketing efforts, and our success depends in part on our ability to manage costs associated with these initiatives, or to find other channels to acquire and retain customers cost-effectively. The demand for and cost of online advertising has been increasing and may continue to increase.  An inability to acquire and retain customers at a reasonable cost would increase our operating costs and prevent us from achieving profitability.
 
Our profitability can be adversely affected by a decrease in the introduction of new brand name and generic prescription drugs.

Our sales and profit margins are materially affected by the introduction of new brand name and generic drugs.  New brand name drugs can result in increased drug utilization and associated sales revenues, while the introduction of lower priced generic alternatives typically result in higher gross profit margins, due to the fact, the Company is able to purchase the generic drugs on a much more competitive cost basis.  Accordingly, a decrease in the number of significant new brand name drugs or generics successfully introduced could adversely affect our results of operations.
 
We have claims and lawsuits against us that may result in adverse outcomes.
 
We are subject to a variety of claims and lawsuits. Adverse outcomes in some or all of these claims may result in significant monetary damages or injunctive relief that could adversely affect our ability to conduct our business. Although management currently believes resolving all of these matters, individually or in the aggregate, will not have a material adverse impact on our financial statements, the litigation and other claims are subject to inherent uncertainties and management’s view of these matters may change in the future. A material adverse impact on our financial statements also could occur for the period in which the effect of an unfavorable final outcome becomes probable and reasonably estimable.

Since our business is Internet-based, we are vulnerable to system interruption and damage, which would harm our operations and reputation.
 
Our ability to receive and fulfill orders promptly and accurately is critical to our success and largely depends on the efficient and uninterrupted operation of our computer and communications hardware and software systems. We experience periodic system interruptions that impair the performance of our transaction systems or make our website inaccessible to our customers. These systems interruptions delay us from efficiently accepting and fulfilling orders, sending out promotional e-mails and other customer communications in a timely manner, introducing new products and features on our website, promptly responding to customers, or providing services to third parties.  Frequent or persistent interruptions in our services could cause current or potential customers to believe that our systems are unreliable, which could cause them to avoid our website, drive them to our competitors, and harm our reputation. To minimize future system interruptions, we need to continue to add software and hardware and to improve our systems and network infrastructure to accommodate increases in website traffic and sales volume, to replace aging hardware and software, and to make up for two years of underinvestment in technology. We may be unable to promptly and effectively upgrade and expand our systems and integrate additional functionality into our existing systems. Any unscheduled interruption in our services could result in fewer orders, additional operating expenses, or reduced customer satisfaction, any of which would harm our revenues and operating results and could delay or prevent our becoming consistently profitable. In addition, the timing and cost of upgrades to our systems and infrastructure may substantially affect our ability to achieve or maintain profitability.
 
All of our fulfillment operations and inventory are located in our distribution facility, and any significant disruption of this center’s operations would hurt our ability to make timely delivery of our products.
 
We conduct all of our fulfillment operations from our distribution facility in Florence, Kentucky, which houses our entire product inventory.  A natural disaster or other catastrophic event, such as an earthquake, fire, flood, severe storm, break-in, server or systems failure, terrorist attack, or other comparable event at this facility, would cause interruptions or delays in our business and loss of inventory and could render us unable to process or fulfill customer orders in a timely manner, or at all.  Further, we have no formal disaster recovery plan, and our business interruption insurance may not adequately compensate us for losses that may occur.  In the event that a significant part of this facility was destroyed or our operations were interrupted for any extended period of time, our business, financial condition, and operating results would be harmed.
 
Our operating results will be harmed if we are unable to manage and sustain our growth.
 
Our business is unproven on a large scale and actual operating margins may be less than expected. If we are unable to scale capacity efficiently, we may fail to achieve expected operating margins, which would have an adverse effect on our operating results.
 
If we are unable to obtain shipments of products from our vendors, our business and results of operations would be harmed.
 
We have significant vendors that are important to our sourcing of pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical products. We do not have long-term arrangements with most of our vendors to guarantee availability of merchandise, particular payment terms, or extension of credit limits. If our current vendors were to stop selling merchandise to us on acceptable terms, we may not be able to acquire merchandise from other vendors in a timely and efficient manner and on acceptable terms, or at all.
 
We have significant inventory risk.
 
We must maintain sufficient inventory levels to operate our business successfully and to meet our customers’ expectations that we will have the products they order in stock. However, we must also guard against the risk of accumulating excess inventory.  We are exposed to significant inventory risk as a result of rapid changes in product cycles, changes in consumer tastes, uncertainty of success of product launches, seasonality, manufacturer backorders, and other vendor-related problems. In order to be successful, we must accurately predict these trends and events, which we may be unable to do, and avoid over- or under-stocking products. In addition, demand for products can change significantly between the time product inventory is ordered and the time it is available for sale. When we begin selling a new product, it is particularly difficult to forecast product demand accurately. A failure to optimize inventory would increase our expenses if we have too much inventory, and would harm our margins by requiring us to make split shipments for backordered items or pay for expedited delivery from the manufacturer if we had insufficient inventory. In addition, we may be unable to obtain certain products for sale on our website as a result of general shortages (for example, in the case of some prescription drugs), manufacturer policies (for example, in the case of some contact lenses and prestige beauty items), manufacturer or distributor problems, or popular demand. Failure to have inventory in stock when a customer orders it could cause us to lose that order or that customer. The acquisition of some types of inventory, or inventory from some of our sources, may require significant lead time or prepayment, and this inventory may not be returnable. We carry a broad selection of products and significant inventory levels of a substantial number of products, and we may be unable to sell this inventory in sufficient quantities or during the relevant selling seasons.  The occurrence of one or more of these inventory risks may adversely affect our business and operating results.

If we make an error in filling or packaging the prescription drugs that we sell, we would be subject to liability and negative publicity.
 
Errors relating to prescriptions, dosage, and other aspects of the prescription medication could result in liability for us that our insurance may not cover. Because we distribute pharmaceutical products directly to the consumer, we are one of the most visible participants in the distribution chain and therefore have increased exposure to liability claims. Our pharmacists are required by law to offer counseling, without additional charge, to our customers about medication, dosage, delivery systems, common side effects, and other information deemed significant by the pharmacists. Our pharmacists may have a duty to warn customers regarding any potential adverse effects of a prescription drug if the warning could reduce or negate those effects. This counseling is in part accomplished through e-mails to our customers and inserts included with the prescription, which may increase the risk of miscommunication because the customer is not personally present to receive the counseling or advice or may not have provided us with all relevant information. Although we also post product information on our website, customers may not read this information. Providing information on pharmaceutical and other products creates the potential for claims to be made against us for negligence, personal injury, wrongful death, product liability, malpractice, invasion of privacy, or other legal theories based on our product or service offerings. Our general liability and business owners’ liability insurance may not cover potential claims of this type or may not be adequate to protect us from all liabilities that may be imposed if any such claims were to be successful. In addition, errors by either us or our competitors may also produce significant adverse publicity either for us or for the online pharmacy industry in general, which could result in an immediate reduction in the amount of orders we receive and would harm our ability to conduct and sustain our business.
 
Security breaches would damage our reputation, expose us to liability and otherwise harm our business.
 
Our security measures may not prevent security breaches that could harm our business. To succeed, we must provide a secure transmission of confidential information over the Internet and protect the confidential customer and patient information we retain, such as credit card numbers and prescription records. A third party who compromises or breaches the physical and electronic security measures we use to protect transaction data and customer records could misappropriate proprietary information, cause interruptions in our operations, damage our computers or those of our customers, or otherwise harm our business. Any of these would harm our reputation and expose us to a risk of loss or litigation and possible liability. We may need to expend significant resources to protect against security breaches or to address problems caused by breaches.
 
Expanding the breadth and depth of our product offerings is expensive and difficult, and we may receive no benefit from our expansion.
 
We intend to continue to expand the breadth and depth of our prescription and OTC product offerings by promoting new or complementary products or sales formats. Expansion of our offerings in this manner could require significant additional expenditures and could strain our management, financial, and operational resources. For example, we may need to incur significant marketing expenses, develop relationships with new fulfillment partners or manufacturers, or comply with new regulations. We may be unable to expand our product offerings or sales formats in a cost-effective or timely manner, and any new offerings or formats may not generate satisfactory revenues to offset the costs involved. Furthermore, any new product offering or sales format that is not favorably received by consumers could damage the reputation of our brand. A lack of market acceptance of our efforts or our inability to generate sufficient revenues to offset the cost of expanded offerings would harm our business.
 
The implementation of the Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit has and will likely continue to adversely affect drug pricing, which decreases our profitability.
 
In 2006, the Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit under the Medicare Prescription Drug, Improvement, and Modernization Act of 2003 (“DIMA”) became effective. The Medicare Part D prescription drug benefit has negatively affected, and is likely to continue to have a negative impact on, our business. Medicare Part D prescription drug coverage will likely increase the number of senior citizens with prescription drug coverage and reduce the number of customers who pay for their prescription drugs themselves. Customers who choose to obtain coverage under a Medicare Part D plan will likely purchase fewer drugs, or no longer purchase drugs, from us. Because we are not currently processing claims for Medicare Part D, we will be able to serve Medicare D customers only when those customers elect to purchase outside of their Medicare Part D plan and purchase their prescriptions out-of-pocket, such as when the particular medication is not covered by the customer’s Medicare plans or when the customer’s purchase is not covered because of a deductible, co-payment, or other exclusion. Moreover, the DIMA calls for significant changes to the formulas the Medicare program uses to calculate its payments for prescription drugs, as well as introduction of managed care elements and changes to the administration of the drug benefit program. When fully implemented, these changes could exert downward pressure on prescription drug prices and payments by the government, even as the number of people who use the Medicare benefits to pay for prescription drugs increases. All of these factors could adversely affect our drug prices and dispensing fees, and ultimately could reduce our profit margins.

Government regulation of our business is extensive, and our failure to comply fully with regulations could result in civil and criminal penalties for us.
 
Our business is subject to extensive federal, state and local regulations.  For example:
 
●  
entities engaging in the practice of pharmacy are subject to numerous federal and state regulatory requirements, including those relating to pharmacy licensing and registration, the dispensing of prescription drugs, pharmacy record keeping and reporting, and the confidentiality, security, storage, and release of patient records; and
 
●  
the sale, advertisement, and promotion of, among other things, prescription, OTC and homeopathic medications, dietary supplements, medical devices, cosmetics, foods, and other consumer products that we sell are subject to regulation by the FDA, the FTC, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, and state regulatory authorities, as the case may be.
 
As we expand our product offerings and more non-pharmaceutical products become subject to FDA, FTC and other regulation, more of our products will likely be subject to regulation. In addition, regulatory requirements to which our business is subject may expand over time, and some of these requirements may have a disproportionately negative effect on Internet pharmacies.  For example, the federal government and a majority of states now regulate the retail sale of OTC products containing pseudoephedrine that might be used as precursors in the manufacture of illegal drugs. As a result, we are currently unable to sell these products to customers residing in states that require retailers to obtain a physical form of identification or maintain a signature log. Some members of Congress have proposed additional regulation of Internet pharmacies in an effort to combat the illegal sale of prescription drugs over the Internet, and state legislatures could add or amend legislation related to the regulation of nonresident pharmacies. In addition to regulating the claims made for specific types of products, the FDA and the FTC may attempt to regulate the format and content of websites that offer products to consumers. The laws and regulations applicable to our business often require subjective interpretation, and we cannot be certain that our efforts to comply with these regulations will be deemed sufficient by the appropriate regulatory agencies. Violations of any regulations could result in various civil and criminal penalties, including suspension or revocation of our licenses or registrations, seizure of our inventory, or monetary fines, any of which could harm our business, financial condition, or operating results. Compliance with new laws or regulations could increase our expenses or lead to delays as we adjust our website and operations.
 
Increasing concern about privacy, spam, and the use and security of customer information could restrict our marketing efforts and harm our business.
 
Internet retailers are also subject to increasing regulation and scrutiny relating to privacy, spam, and the use and security of personal user information. These regulations, along with increased governmental or private enforcement (for example, by Internet service providers), may increase the cost of growing our business. Current and proposed regulations and enforcement efforts may restrict our ability to collect and use demographic and personal information from users and send promotional e-mails, which could be costly or harm our marketing efforts. For example, if one or more Internet service providers were to block our promotional e-mails to customers, our ability to generate orders and revenue could be harmed. Further, any violation of privacy, anti-spam, or data protection laws or regulations may subject us to fines, penalties, and damages and may otherwise have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations, and financial condition.
 
If people or property is harmed by the products we sell, product liability claims could damage our business and reputation.
 
Some of the products we sell may expose us to product liability claims relating to personal injury, death, or property damage caused by these products and may require us to take actions such as product recalls. Any such product liability claim or product recall may result in adverse publicity regarding us and the products we sell, which may harm our reputation. If we are found liable under product liability claims, we could be required to pay substantial monetary damages. Further, even if we successfully defend ourselves against this type of claim, we could be forced to spend a substantial amount of money in litigation expenses, our management could be required to spend valuable time in the defense against these claims, and our reputation could suffer, any of which could harm our business. Our current vendors do not, and future vendors may not, indemnify us against product liability. Further, our liability insurance may not be adequate to protect us from all liability that may be imposed as a result of these claims, and we cannot be certain that insurance will continue to be available to us on economically reasonable terms, or at all. Any imposition of product liability that is not covered by vendor indemnification or our insurance could harm our business, financial condition, and operating results.  We do not have vendor indemnification clauses with our current vendors.

If we are required to collect sales and use taxes on the products we sell in additional jurisdictions, we may be subject to liability for past sales and our future sales may decrease.
 
In accordance with current industry practice, historically we have not collected sales and use taxes or other taxes with respect to shipments of goods into states other than Kentucky and Nevada. The operation of our distribution center, the operations of any future distribution centers and other aspects of our evolving business, however, may result in additional sales and use tax collection obligations.  In addition, one or more other states may successfully assert that we should collect sales and use or other taxes on the sale of our products in that state. One or more states or the federal government may seek, either through unilateral action or through federal legislation, to impose sales or other tax collection obligations on out-of-jurisdiction companies that engage in electronic commerce as we do.  Moreover, one or more states could begin to impose sales taxes on sales of prescription products, which are not generally taxed at this time, or impose sales taxes on sales of certain prescription products. The imposition of additional tax obligations on our business by state and local governments could create significant administrative burdens for us, decrease our future sales, and harm our cash flow and operating results.
 
We are dependent on key personnel and their loss would adversely affect our ability to conduct our business.
 
In order to execute our business plan, we must be able to keep our existing management and professionals and, when necessary, hire additional personnel who have the expertise we need. We cannot assure you that we will be able to this, and our failure to do so could have a material adverse effect on our business, results of operations and financial condition. We are particularly dependent on the services of Lalit Dhadphale, our Chief Executive Officer, President and Principal Financial Officer. We do not carry key-man life insurance for our benefit on Mr. Dhadphale or on any other employee of our company.
 
We are a public company and, as such, are subject to the reporting requirements of federal securities laws, which are expensive and may divert resources from other projects, thus impairing our ability to grow.
 
We are a public reporting company and, accordingly, are subject to the information and reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and other U.S. federal securities laws, including compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (the “Sarbanes-Oxley Act”). Compliance with these obligations requires significant time and resources from our management and increases our legal, insurance and financial compliance costs. It is also time consuming and costly for us to develop and implement the internal controls and reporting procedures required by Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. If we are unable to comply with the requirements of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, it may preclude us from keeping our filings with the SEC current. Non-current reporting companies may be subject to various restrictions, such as the inability to be quoted on the OTCQB Market Tier.  See “If we fail to remain current in our reporting requirements, we could be removed from the OTCQB Market Tier, which would limit the ability of broker-dealers to sell our securities and the ability of our stockholders to sell their securities in the secondary market.” (Since the Company failed to file the SEC Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 on a timely basis, our Common Stock has been trading on the OTC Pink market tier.)

Risks Related to Our Common Stock
 
Our Common Stock may be considered a “penny stock” and may be difficult to sell.
 
The SEC has adopted regulations which generally define “penny stock” to be an equity security that has a market or exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to specific exemptions. The market price of our Common Stock has been below $5.00 per share and therefore we are designated as a “penny stock” according to SEC rules. This designation requires any broker or dealer selling these securities to disclose certain information concerning the transaction, obtain a written agreement from the purchaser and determine that the purchaser is reasonably suitable to purchase the securities. These rules restrict the ability of brokers or dealers to sell our Common Stock and may affect the ability of our stockholders to sell their shares. In addition, since our common stock is now quoted on the OTC Pink market tier, our stockholders may find it difficult to obtain accurate quotations of our common stock and may find few buyers to purchase the stock or a lack of market makers to support the stock price.
 
Our stock price may continue to be volatile and may decrease in response to various factors, which could adversely affect our business and cause our stockholders to suffer significant losses.
 
Our Common Stock is illiquid, and its price has been and may continue to be volatile in the indefinite future.  During 2012, the high and low sale prices of our common stock were $7.74 and $3.15, respectively.  On July 17, 2013, the closing price of our common stock was $1.30.  The price of our stock could fluctuate widely in response to various factors, many of which are beyond our control, including the following:
 
●  
changes in our industry;
 
●  
government regulations;
 
●  
competitive pricing pressures;
 
●  
our ability to obtain working capital;
 
●  
additions or departures of key personnel;
 
●  
limited “public float” in the hands of a small number of persons, whose sales or lack of sales could result in positive or negative pricing pressure on the market price for our common stock;
 
●  
sales of our common stock;
 
●  
our ability to execute our business plan;
 
●  
operating results that fall below expectations;
 
●  
loss of any strategic relationship;
 
●  
economic and other external factors; and
 
●  
period-to-period fluctuations in our financial results.
 
In addition, the securities markets have from time to time experienced significant price and volume fluctuations that are unrelated to the operating performance of particular companies. These market fluctuations may also materially and adversely affect the market price of our common stock.

If we fail to become current in our reporting requirements, we could remain on the OTC Pink market tier, which would limit the ability of broker-dealers to sell our securities and the ability of our stockholders to sell their securities in the secondary market.
 
Companies trading on the OTCQB Market Tier must be reporting issuers under Section 12 of the Exchange Act, and must be current in their reports under Section 13 of the Exchange Act, in order to maintain price quotation privileges on the OTCQB Market Tier. If we fail to become current in our reporting requirements, we could remain on the OTC Pink market tier. As a result, the market liquidity for our securities could be adversely affected by limiting the ability of broker-dealers to sell our securities and the ability of our stockholders to sell their securities in the secondary market. See “We must comply with Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which requires us to document and test our internal controls over financial reporting.  Any delays or difficulty in satisfying these requirements could adversely affect our future stock price.”
 
Our stock trading volume may not provide adequate liquidity for investors, and the price of our common stock may fluctuate significantly.  This may make it difficult for you to resell our common stock when you want or at prices you find attractive.
 
Shares of our common stock are traded on the over-the-counter markets, including the OTC Pink market tier of the OTC Markets Group Inc. (formerly the Pink Sheets).  The average daily trading volume in our common stock is generally less than that of larger companies whose stocks are listed on an exchange and can often be sporadic and very limited.  Given the limited and sporadic trading of our common stock, holders of our common stock may be unable to make significant sales of the common stock in a brief period of time.  In addition, our common stock may be subject to significant price swings even when a relatively small number of shares are traded.  We cannot predict the volume or prices at which our common stock will trade in the future.

Our officers, directors and 5% or greater stockholders have significant voting power.
 
Our executive officers, directors, and our 5% or greater stockholders beneficially own approximately 54.4% of our outstanding voting securities as of July 1, 2013.  If these stockholders act together, they will be able to exert significant control over our management and affairs requiring stockholder approval, including approval of significant corporate transactions.
 
 We could issue “blank check” preferred stock without stockholder approval with the effect of diluting then current stockholder interests and impairing their voting rights and provisions in our charter documents could discourage a takeover that stockholders may consider favorable.
 
 Our Certificate of Incorporation authorizes the issuance of up to 1,000,000 shares of “blank check” preferred stock with designations, rights and preferences as may be determined from time to time by our board of directors. To date, we have designated 200,000 of these shares as Series A Convertible Preferred Stock, 625,000 of these shares as Series B Convertible Preferred Stock, and 10,000 of these shares as Series C Preferred Stock, leaving 165,000 shares of “blank check” preferred stock available for designation and issuance. Our board of directors is empowered, without stockholder approval, to issue a series of preferred stock with dividend, liquidation, conversion, voting or other rights which could dilute the interest of, or impair the voting power of, our common stockholders. The issuance of a series of preferred stock could be used as a method of discouraging, delaying or preventing a change in control. For example, it would be possible for our board of directors to issue preferred stock with voting or other rights or preferences that could impede the success of any attempt to change control of our company.
 
We may engage in additional financing that could lead to dilution of existing stockholders.
 
To date, we have financed our activities through the proceeds from sales of our equity securities in private placement financings and the proceeds from the issuance of our promissory notes in private financings.  Any future financings by us may result in substantial dilution of the holdings of existing stockholders and could have a negative impact on the market price of our common stock.  Furthermore, we cannot assure you that such future financings will be possible.
 
We do not anticipate paying dividends in the foreseeable future; you should not buy our stock if you expect dividends.
 
We currently intend to retain our future earnings, if any, to support operations and to finance expansion and, therefore, we do not anticipate paying any cash dividends on our common stock in the foreseeable future.

Not applicable.


Our corporate headquarters, which also houses our pharmacy and customer service operations as well as our inventory, is located at 7107 Industrial Road, Florence, Kentucky, 41042. We occupy 62,600 square feet of warehouse space under a lease with a monthly rental rate range from $9,224 to $11,975.  The lease expires January 1, 2017.

The Company leased an apartment at a monthly lease rate of $2,850. The lease expired on March 31, 2013.  

On June 7, 2013 we signed a three year lease for $1,000 per month at a 1,200 square foot location in Lawrenceburg, Indiana which will serve as an office, backup facility and closed door pharmacy.


In the ordinary course of business, we may become subject to lawsuits and other claims and proceedings that might arise from litigation matters or regulatory audits. Such matters are subject to uncertainty and outcomes are often not predictable with assurance. Our management does not presently expect that any such matters will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s consolidated financial condition or consolidated results of operations. We are not currently involved in any pending or threatened material litigation or other material legal proceedings nor have we been made aware of any penalties from regulatory audits, except as described below.

On November 29, 2011, NMN Advisors, Inc. (“Plaintiff”) filed a complaint against us alleging that we breached a consulting agreement. The complaint seeks damages of $70,000 plus pre-judgment interest. On February 6, 2012, we filed our answer to the complaint denying that we owe any amounts under the contract, and we also filed a cross-complaint against the plaintiff asserting a number of causes of action, including breach of contract. Plaintiff filed its answer to our cross-complaint on March 5, 2012. Both we and the Plaintiff agreed to attempt to resolve the dispute by court mediation and on August 21, 2012, this litigation was resolved by a negotiated settlement.

On February 9, 2012, two of our former stockholders, Rock Castle and Jason Smith (“Plaintiffs”), filed suit against us in the Hamilton County, Ohio Court of Common Pleas, alleging that we had breached the terms of certain incentive options we granted to the Plaintiffs in connection with our now-terminated oral consulting arrangements with the Plaintiffs, by among other things, refusing Plaintiffs’ purported exercise of options to purchase 233,332 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $2.00 per share in December 2011.  Plaintiffs have requested that, among other things, the court require us to permit the exercise of the 233,332 options.  Plaintiffs have also provided an expert report indicating damages of $2.086 million. Also named as defendants were two individuals, Michael Peppel and Gary Singer, whom Plaintiffs claim acted as agents for us in connection with our purchase of shares of our common stock from Plaintiffs in September 2011.  On April 26, 2013, Plaintiffs dismissed Mr. Singer from the lawsuit.  Trial of the case is currently scheduled for April of 2014.  We deny all of the Plaintiffs’ claims and intend to contest this matter vigorously.

On March 2, 2012, a former contractor of ours filed suit against us in the Hamilton County, Ohio Court of Common Pleas, alleging that, among other things, we failed to pay amounts due on certain credit cards that were issued in plaintiff’s name but for which we agreed to assume financial responsibility. Although we deny any responsibility for the payments owed, we resolved this dispute by entering into a settlement agreement with the plaintiff, and the suit was voluntarily dismissed on May 30, 2012.

On October 9, 2012, American Express Travel Related Services Company, Inc. brought legal action against us in the Boone County, Kentucky Circuit Court. The action seeks to recover the unpaid balance on a credit card account in the amount of $87,029, plus interest and costs. We filed an answer in November 2012.  This litigation was resolved on July 10, 2013 by a negotiated settlement.

On November 5, 2012, HD Smith, Inc., one of our vendors, (“Plaintiff”) filed a complaint against us alleging that we breached our vendor credit agreement. The Plaintiff is seeking damages of $170,316 plus pre-judgment interest and attorneys’ fees. This litigation was resolved on January 25, 2013, as amended on June 20, 2013, by a negotiated settlement.

On March 13, 2013, a former vendor filed suit against us in the Hamilton County, Ohio Court of Common Pleas, alleging that we had breached our contract. The plaintiff is seeking damages of $17,800 plus pre-judgment interest and other costs and expenses. We answered the complaint and trial was set for June 2014.  This matter was resolved on June 20, 2013 by a negotiated settlement.

On March 20, 2013, a complaint was filed in the Delaware Court of Chancery by two of our shareholders, HWH Lending, LLC and Milfam I L.P., seeking to compel the holding of an annual meeting of stockholders for the election of directors under Delaware law. We filed an answer to the complaint on April 12, 2013.  On May 13, 2013, we publicly announced that the Board of Directors had set the date for our next annual meeting of stockholders as August 15, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. Eastern time.  In lieu of further litigation, on July 18, 2013, the parties submitted to the court a proposed order confirming August 15, 2013 as the annual meeting date and establishing certain procedures related to the annual meeting.  On July 18, 2013, the court entered the proposed order providing that (i) we shall notice and hold our annual meeting on August 15, 2013 for the election of directors and for the transaction of any other business properly brought before the meeting, and the date of the  meeting shall not be adjourned, continued or postponed prior to the election of directors absent an order of the court; (ii) the shares of our stock represented at the annual meeting, either in person or by proxy, and entitled to vote thereat shall constitute a quorum for purposes of the meeting, notwithstanding any contrary provision in our certificate of incorporation or Bylaws, and (iii) the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled to notice of and to vote at the annual meeting is July 1, 2013, and if the annual meeting noticed for August 15, 2013 is adjourned, continued or postponed prior to the election of directors pursuant to an order of the court, we may set a new record date in accordance with our Bylaws.

On April 23, 2013, our Board of Directors formed a Special Committee, chaired by Youssef Bennani, a director and the Chairman of our Audit Committee, to investigate certain stockholder demands.  Since March 1, 2013, we have received three letters from stockholders alleging certain breaches of fiduciary duties by directors of us and demanding that we commence investigations of the alleged conduct.  On March 1, 2013, we received a letter on behalf of the holders of our Series B Preferred Stock (“Preferred Holders”) alleging that a convicted felon appears to be a consultant to us, is indebted to the Company, and has the ability to exercise control over the Company.  On March 8, 2013, we received a letter on behalf of stockholder Wayne Corona, who is also a consultant to the Company, alleging that two directors, Matthew Stecker and John Backus, breached their fiduciary duties and demanding that we investigate legal claims against those directors.  The letter alleges that the director designee of the holders of our Series B Preferred Stock and the director designee of New Atlantic Ventures Fund III, L.P. (“NAV”) acted in concert to attempt to scuttle our recent financing plan.  The letter also alleged that the director designee of the Preferred Holders and the director designee of NAV sought to prevent us from paying back its lenders in 2010 and 2011.  On March 18, 2013, we received a letter on behalf of the two directors denying the allegations and stating there was no proper basis for launching an investigation.  On March 27, 2013, a letter on behalf of Messrs. Backus and Stecker, in their capacities as directors and stockholders, demanded that we (i) investigate alleged breaches of confidentiality and fiduciary duties by our President and CEO and two other directors in connection with the purported stockholder demand letter of Mr. Corona dated March 8, 2013, and (ii) assert related claims against those individuals.  The letter also asserted that the director constituting the special committee, Youssef Bennani, is subject to alleged conflicts of interest that disqualify him from serving on any proposed special committee to evaluate the pending stockholder demands.  The Special Committee has retained an independent law firm to conduct the investigation and advise the Special Committee.
 
On April 30, 2013, a purported class-action complaint was filed against us in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.  The complaint alleges that we sent an unsolicited advertising fax to Glen Ellyn Pharmacy, the named plaintiff, and other recipients.  The complaint alleges that such a fax violates the federal Telephone Consumer Protection Act (the “TCPA”), the Illinois Consumer Fraud Act and Illinois common law.  Under the TCPA, recipients of unsolicited fax advertisements are entitled to damages of up to $500 per fax for inadvertent violations and up to $1,500 for knowing or willful violations.  At the time of filing the complaint, the plaintiff also filed a motion asking the Court to certify a class of persons and entities who were sent advertising faxes by us which did not contain an opt out notice.  On June 19, 2013, the plaintiff filed an amended class-action complaint which withdrew the two counts for alleged violations of the Illinois Consumer Fraud Act and the common law tort of conversion.  The amended complaint eliminates claims for damages under Illinois law and leaves only a single count for an alleged violation of the TCPA.  We filed an answer to the amended complaint on July 8, 2013.  The District Court has not established or recognized any class.  We are vigorously contesting class certification and liability, and will continue to evaluate its defenses.  However, it is impossible to predict with certainty the outcome of any litigation, and we can offer no assurance on whether we will be successful in any such litigation.

On May 7, 2013, a putative stockholder derivative action was filed in the Court of Chancery of the State of Delaware against certain directors and our CEO and against us, as a nominal defendant.  The complaint alleges claims for breach of fiduciary duty, entrenchment and corporate waste arising out of the alleged failure to conduct annual meetings, SEC filing obligations, advances to a former employee and a $500,000 secured loan to us which the entire board of directors approved.  The derivative complaint seeks unspecified compensatory damages and other relief.  We and the individual defendants believe that the allegations stated in the complaint are without merit and intend to defend ourselves vigorously against the allegations.

On May 15, 2013, a former consultant filed suit in Boone County, Kentucky Circuit Court alleging breach of contract and unjust enrichment for unpaid consulting fees and expenses of approximately $27,000.  We were served with the lawsuit in June 2013 and have not yet filed an answer to the complaint.

Net Sales

Net sales for the year ended December 31, 2012 grew to $11,081,429 from $10,363,293 for the year ended December 31, 2011, an increase of $718,136 or 6.9%, as a result of an increase in prescription drug sales of approximately $1,600,000 offset by a reduction in OTC sales of approximately $788,000.  During 2012, due to financial constraints, we allocated more funds toward the higher margin prescription drug inventory which has more loyal customers and we allocated less funds toward over-the-counter inventory.

Costs and Expenses
 
Cost of Sales and Gross Margin
 
Cost of sales were $5,913,977 for the year ended December 31, 2012 as compared to $5,845,525 for the year ended December 31, 2011, an increase of $68,452 or 1.2%, primarily as a result of growth in order volume. Gross margin percentage increased year-over-year from 43.6% for the year ended December 31, 2011 to 46.6% for the year ended December 31, 2012, primarily due to the shift in product mix to higher margin prescription drugs from approximately 47.8% of net sales during the year ended December 31, 2011 to 59.2% of net sales in the year ended December 31, 2012. We believe that the change in product mix with prescription drugs increasing will continue to improve margins during 2013 and our marketing efforts have focused on this shift.
 
Impairment of Intangible Assets
 
During 2012 we recorded a $396,298 impairment charge associated with the customer relationship intangible assets which resulted from the acquisition of Hocks.com on February 14, 2011. Our Hocks divisions experienced a significant and sustained decline during the year ended December 31, 2012 and our review of the future undiscounted cash flows led us to conclude that the intangible assets should be written off.
 
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses totaled $9,261,523 for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $9,246,431 for the year ended December 31, 2011, an increase of $15,092 or 0.2%. The year ended December 31, 2012 expense increases included (a) expanded recognition of depreciation and amortization expense of $103,306 (primarily due to recording a higher 2012 charge for assets acquired during 2011); (b) higher legal fees of $382,629 (primarily due to increased litigation); (c) contract labor expense of $225,088 (primarily due to management transition); (d) health insurance expense of $156,821 (primarily due to increase in headcount) and (e) accounting fees of $170,121 (primarily due to the audit and financial reporting costs relating to certain items identified by the Company’s auditors (see Item 1 – Recent Developments)).  The increases were partially offset by reduction of meals and entertainment expenses of $182,907 and travel related expenses of $65,291. We expect that our selling, general and administrative expenses, specifically legal and professional fees, will decrease as we improve our internal controls over financial reporting and we resolve our outstanding litigation.

Other Income (Expense)
 
Interest expense increased from $1,021,112 in the year ended December 31, 2011 to $1,095,881 in the year ended December 31, 2012, an increase of $74,769 or 7.3%, due to the contractual loan interest expense of $288,116 for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $131,927 for the year ended December 31, 2011, an increase of $156,189.  The increase is due to the increases in the average outstanding balances of our convertible notes payable and notes payable.  This was offset by a decrease of $81,419 in non-cash accretion of debt discount for the year ended December 31, 2012 to $807,766 compared to $889,185 for the year ended December 31, 2011, as a result of certain convertible notes and notes payable maturing in 2012.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
We have not entered into any transactions with unconsolidated entities in which we have financial guarantees, subordinated retained interests, derivative instruments or other contingent arrangements that expose us to material continuing risks, contingent liabilities or any other obligations under a variable interest in an unconsolidated entity that provides us with financing, liquidity, market risk or credit risk support.
 
 
 
 
 

 
- 30 -



 
 
 
Impact of Inflation
 
We believe that inflation has not had a material impact on our results of operations for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011. We cannot assure you that future inflation will not have an adverse impact on our operating results and financial condition.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Since inception, we have financed operations primarily through debt and equity financings and advances from stockholders.  As of December 31, 2012 we had a working capital deficiency of $8,395,171 and an accumulated deficit of $20,828,674.  During the year ended December 31, 2012, we incurred a net loss of $5,574,775 and used $947,911 of cash in operating activities. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

Subsequent to December 31, 2012, we (a) raised $3,501,975 in an equity financing, substantially all of which was raised in February 2013, and substantially all of the proceeds were used to satisfy the our obligations under our notes and convertible notes totaling $3,000,000, which were previously in default; (b) raised $500,000 in a debt financing; (c) converted $833,000 of obligations to related parties into equity instruments; (c) received a Notice of Redemption related to our Series C Redeemable Preferred Stock aggregating $1,000,000; and (d) continued to incur net losses, use cash in operating activities and experience cash and working capital constraints. As a result of receiving the Notice of Redemption, we must now apply all of our assets to redemption of the Series C Preferred Stock and to no other corporate purpose, except to the extent prohibited by Delaware law governing distributions to stockholders (we are not permitted to utilize those assets required to pay our debts as they come due and those assets required to continue as a going concern towards redemption).

We recognize that we will need to raise additional capital in order to fund operations, meet our payment obligations, including the redemption of the Series C Redeemable Preferred Stock, and execute our business plan. There is no assurance that additional financing will be available when needed or that management will be able to obtain financing on terms acceptable to us and whether we will become profitable and generate positive operating cash flow. If we are unable to raise sufficient additional funds, we will have to develop and implement a plan to further extend payables, extend note repayments, extend the preferred stock redemption and reduce overhead until sufficient additional capital is raised to support further operations. There can be no assurance that such a plan will be successful.  If we are unable to obtain financing on a timely basis, we could be forced to sell our assets, discontinue our operations and/or seek reorganization under the U.S. bankruptcy code.

Accordingly, the accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, which contemplate our continuation as a going concern and the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The carrying amounts of assets and liabilities presented in the consolidated financial statements do not necessarily represent realizable or settlement values. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

As of December 31, 2012 and 2011, the Company had cash on hand of $0 and $41, respectively.  Our cash flow from operating, investing and financing activities during this period were as follows:

For the year ended December 31, 2012, cash flows included net cash used in operating activities of $947,911.  This amount included a decrease in operating cash related to a net loss of $5,574,775, partially offset by aggregate non-cash adjustments of $2,275,103, which includes stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, debt discount amortization and intangible asset impairment, plus aggregate cash provided by changes in operating assets and liabilities of $2,351,761 (primarily a result of extending payables due to cash constraints).  For the year ended December 31, 2011, cash flows included net cash used in operating activities of $2,560,013.  This amount included a decrease in operating cash related to a net loss of $5,712,199, partially offset by aggregate non-cash adjustments of $2,741,593, which includes stock-based compensation, depreciation and amortization, debt discount amortization and provisions for doubtful accounts and obsolete inventory, plus aggregate cash provided by changes in operating assets and liabilities of $410,593 (primarily a result of extending payables due to cash constraints).
 
For the year ended December 31, 2012, net cash used in investing activities was $710,263 due to placing cash provided by investors into escrow (restricted cash) net of $139,739 repayments of employee advances. For the year ended December 31, 2011, net cash used in investing activities was $883,868, primarily due to the acquisition of equipment and leasehold improvements of $452,322, $200,000 of cash used to pay the sellers in the Hocks.com acquisition and $247,278 of employee advances.

  For the year ended December 31, 2012, net cash provided by financing activities was $1,658,134. Cash was provided primarily by $850,002 of proceeds from a pending offering, proceeds from notes and other advances – related parties of $605,000 of which $293,812 was repaid during 2012, and the sale of 116,668 shares of our Common Stock for cash proceeds of $525,004, offset in part by capital lease payments of $54,722.   For the year ended December 31, 2011, net cash provided by financing activities was $2,046,338. Cash was provided by the sale of 597,542 shares of our Common Stock for cash proceeds of $1,972,241, the issuance of two notes payable for aggregate proceeds of $3,000,000,  $1,000,000 provided by the sale of 10,000 shares of the Company’s redeemable preferred series C stock, and advances from a stockholder in the amount of $300,000. These amounts were offset in part by the use of $3,419,715 of cash to repurchase 1,179,212 shares of our Common Stock from a greater than 10% stockholder and repayment of $1,000,000 of notes payable.
 
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates
 
Use of Estimates

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.  Our significant estimates include reserves related to accounts receivable and inventory, the recoverability and useful lives of long-lived assets, the valuation allowance related to deferred tax assets, the valuation of equity instruments and debt discounts, and the valuation of acquired assets.

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable are shown net of an allowance for doubtful accounts. We established an allowance for doubtful accounts sufficient to cover probable and reasonably estimable losses. The nature of the business is that the majority of the payments are made before the product is sent.  If the financial conditions of customers were to materially deteriorate or the nature of the business was to change from prepayment to post payment an increase in the allowance amount could be required. The allowance for doubtful accounts considers a number of factors, including collection experience, current economic trends, estimates of forecasted write-offs, aging of the accounts receivable, and other factors.

Inventory

Inventories consist of finished goods and 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.  As part of the valuation process, inventory reserves are established to state excess and slow-moving inventory at their estimated net realizable value.

Property and Equipment

Property and equipment are stated at cost. Depreciation is calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs, which do not extend the economic useful life of the related assets, are charged to operations as incurred. Gains or losses on disposal of property and equipment are reflected in the statements of operations in the period of disposal.

Intangible Assets

Intangible assets are recorded at cost except for assets acquired using acquisition accounting, which are initially recorded at their estimated fair value.  Intangible assets with definite lives are comprised of customer relationships. Amortization is computed on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of the intangible assets.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

We review the carrying value of intangibles and other long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of long-lived assets is measured by comparing the carrying amount of the asset or asset group to the undiscounted cash flows that the asset or asset group is expected to generate. If the undiscounted cash flows of such assets are less than the carrying amount, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the property, if any, exceeds its fair value.

Website Development Costs
 
Website development costs associated with upgrades or enhancements are capitalized, whereas costs associated with maintenance are expensed. Capitalized costs are amortized over their useful life.

Income Taxes

Deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined on the basis of the difference between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their respective financial reporting amounts (“temporary differences”) at enacted tax rates in effect for the years in which the temporary differences are expected to reverse.  GAAP prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement process for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return.  We do not expect any significant changes in the unrecognized tax benefits within twelve months of the reporting date. We classify interest expense and any related penalties related to income tax obligations as a component of income tax expense.

Debt Discounts

            We record, as a discount to notes and convertible notes, the relative fair value of any warrants issued in connection with the issuances and the intrinsic value of any conversion options based upon the differences between the fair value of the underlying common stock at the commitment date of the note transaction and the effective conversion price embedded in the note. Debt discounts under these arrangements are amortized to interest expense over the earlier of the term of the related debt or their earliest date of redemption.

Revenue Recognition
 
Revenues for the sales of products are recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred, the fee is fixed and determinable and collectability is reasonably assured.

Net Loss Per Share of Common Stock

Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period.  Diluted net loss per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other instruments to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock.  Potentially dilutive securities are excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share if their inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

Stock-Based Compensation

Stock-based compensation expense for all stock-based payment awards is based on the estimated fair value of the award. For employees and directors, the award is measured on the grant date.  For non-employees, the award is measured on the grant date and is then remeasured at each vesting date and financial reporting date. We recognize the estimated fair value of the award as compensation cost over the requisite service period of the award, which is generally the option vesting term.  Option valuation models require the input of highly subjective assumptions. Through June 30, 2011 and prior periods, the fair value of stock-based payment awards was estimated using the Black-Scholes option model with a volatility figure derived from an index of historical stock prices of comparable entities until sufficient data existed to estimate the volatility using our own historical stock prices.  Beginning in July 2011, we began to use the historical trading prices of our own common stock as a component in the calculation of an estimated volatility figure to determine the fair value of stock-based payment awards using the Black-Scholes model. We determined this assumption to be a better indicator of value. We account for the expected life of options in accordance with the “simplified” method which enables the use of the simplified method for “plain vanilla” share options as defined in Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 107. The risk-free interest rate was determined from the implied yields of U.S. Treasury zero-coupon bonds with a remaining life consistent with the expected term of the options.

Preferred Stock

Preferred shares subject to mandatory redemption (if any) are classified as liability instruments and are measured at fair value. We classify conditionally redeemable preferred shares, which includes preferred shares that feature redemption rights that are either within the control of the holder or subject to redemption upon the occurrence of uncertain events not solely within our control, as temporary equity. At all other times, we classify our preferred shares in stockholders’ deficiency. 

Convertible Instruments

GAAP requires companies to bifurcate conversion options from their host instruments and account for them as free standing derivative financial instruments according to certain criteria. The criteria include circumstances in which (a) the economic characteristics and risks of the embedded derivative instrument are not clearly and closely related to the economic characteristics and risks of the host contract, (b) the hybrid instrument that embodies both the embedded derivative instrument and the host contract is not re-measured at fair value under otherwise applicable generally accepted accounting principles with changes in fair value reported in earnings as they occur and (c) a separate instrument with the same terms as the embedded derivative instrument would be considered a derivative instrument. An exception to this rule is when the host instrument is deemed to be conventional, as that term is described under applicable GAAP.

When we determine that the embedded conversion options should not be bifurcated from their host instruments, we record, when necessary, discounts to convertible notes for the intrinsic value of conversion options embedded in debt instruments based upon the differences between the fair value of the underlying common stock at the commitment date of the note transaction and the effective conversion price embedded in the note.  Debt discounts under these arrangements are amortized over the term of the related debt to their stated date of redemption. We also record, when necessary, deemed dividends for the intrinsic value of conversion options embedded in preferred shares based upon the differences between the fair value of the underlying common stock at the commitment date of the transaction and the effective conversion price embedded in the preferred shares.

Common Stock Warrants and Other Derivative Financial Instruments

We classify as equity any contracts that (i) require physical settlement or net-share settlement or (ii) provide us with a choice of net-cash settlement or settlement in our own shares (physical settlement or net-share settlement) providing that such contracts are indexed to our own stock.  We classify as assets or liabilities any contracts that (i) require net-cash settlement (including a requirement to net cash settle the contract if an event occurs and if that event is outside our control) or (ii) gives the counterparty a choice of net-cash settlement or settlement in shares (physical settlement or net-share settlement). We assess the classification of our common stock purchase warrants and other free standing derivatives at each reporting date to determine whether a change in classification between assets and liabilities is required.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

In May 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2011-04, “Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820) - Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs." This ASU addresses fair value measurement and disclosure requirements within Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 820 for the purpose of providing consistency and common meaning between U.S. GAAP and IFRSs. Generally, this ASU is not intended to change the application of the requirements in Topic 820. Rather, this ASU primarily changes the wording to describe many of the requirements in U.S. GAAP for measuring fair value or for disclosing information about fair value measurements. This ASU is effective for periods beginning after December 15, 2011 and did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements or disclosures.

In April 2013, the FASB issued ASU No. 2013-07, “Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) - Liquidation Basis of Accounting." This ASU addresses the requirements and methods of applying the liquidation basis of accounting and the disclosure requirements within ASC Topic 205 for the purpose of providing consistency between the financial reporting of U.S. GAAP liquidating entities. Generally, this ASU provides guidance for the preparation of financial statements and disclosures when liquidation is imminent. This ASU is effective for periods beginning after December 15, 2013 and would only have an impact on our consolidated financial statements or disclosures if liquidation became imminent.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d–15(e) under the Exchange Act) are designed to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed in reports we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the forms and rules of the SEC and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including the CEO, in a manner to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

In connection with the preparation of this Form 10–K, our management, including the CEO, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of December 31, 2012. As described below, management has identified material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting, which is an integral component of our disclosure controls and procedures. As a result of those material weaknesses, our management has concluded that, as of December 31, 2012, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective.

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined In Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f).  The term “internal control over financial reporting” is defined as a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the registrant’s principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, and effected by the registrant’s board of directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that:

●  
pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the registrant;

●  
provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the registrant are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the registrant; and

●  
provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the registrant’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
 
Our internal control system is designed to provide reasonable assurance to our management and board of directors regarding the preparation and fair presentation of published financial statements. All internal control systems, no matter how well designed, have inherent limitations. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs.  In addition, because of changes in conditions, the effectiveness of internal control may vary over time.

As of December 31, 2011, management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on the criteria in Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) and identified material weaknesses. In conducting this evaluation, management took into account the information identified and conclusions reached by the non-management directors in the review as of December, 31, 2011.  As of December 31, 2012, management conducted a new evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting and concluded that the material weaknesses identified previously continue to exist and the Company’s internal control over financial reporting still was not effective.  Due to financial constraints, we have not fully developed or implemented a remediation plan. A “material weakness” is a significant deficiency, or combination of significant deficiencies, that results in more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statement will not be presented or detected by our employees.
 
The specific material weaknesses that management identified in our internal controls as of December 31, 2012 that persist are as follows:

●  
We did not develop appropriate accounting policies and procedures, including the review and supervision, for all necessary areas and did not effectively communicate our existing policies to our employees.

●  
We did not have a sufficient number of adequately trained technical accounting and external reporting personnel to support standalone external financial reporting under OTC Pink or SEC requirements.

●  
We did not have personnel with sufficient experience with United States generally accepted accounting principles to address complex transactions.

●  
We did not have effective controls over disbursements to ensure that disbursements were properly authorized and recorded.

●  
We did not maintain a fully integrated financial consolidation and reporting system throughout the year and as a result, extensive manual analysis, reconciliation and adjustments were required in order to produce timely financial statements for external reporting purpose.

●  
We did not appropriately segregate employees’ duties in connection with the review and approval of certain transactions, reconciliations and other processes in day-to-day operations.

●  
We did not have effective policies and procedures to ensure that senior management and the Board of Directors would receive timely information about related party transactions.

The Company is a non-accelerated filer and is not subject to Section 404(b) of the Sarbanes Oxley Act. Accordingly, this Annual Report does not contain an attestation report of our independent registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting, since the rules for smaller reporting companies provide for this exemption.
 
Plans for Remediation of Material Weaknesses
 
We intend to implement changes to strengthen our internal controls.  We are in the process of developing a remediation plan for the identified material weaknesses and we expect that work on the plan will continue throughout 2013, as financial resources permit.  Specifically, to address the material weaknesses arising from insufficient accounting personnel, the Company plans to hire a full-time Chief Financial Officer who will be on-site.  To address the material weakness arising from inadequate control over disbursements, the Company has canceled certain credit cards, limited the number of personnel with authority over the Company's bank accounts and is in the process of revising its policies and procedures for review and approval of employee disbursements and expenses.  The Company is currently evaluating what additional policies and procedures may be necessary, how to most effectively communicate the policies and procedures to its personnel and how to improve the integration of its financial consolidation and reporting system.  Where appropriate, the Company is receiving advice and assistance from third-party experts as it implements and refines its remediation plan.

Additional measures may be necessary, and the measures we expect to take to improve our internal controls may not be sufficient to address the issues identified, to ensure that our internal controls are effective or to ensure that such material weakness or other material weaknesses would not result in a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements. In addition, other material weaknesses or significant deficiencies may be identified in the future. If we are unable to correct deficiencies in internal controls in a timely manner, our ability to record, process, summarize and report financial information accurately and within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC will be adversely affected. This failure could negatively affect the market price and trading liquidity of our common stock, cause investors to lose confidence in our reported financial information, subject us to civil and criminal investigations and penalties, and generally materially and adversely impact our business and financial condition.
 
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
 
There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting or in other factors during the quarter ended December 31, 2012, that have materially affected, or were reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting
 
On February 21, 2013, Eduardo Altamirano, the Company's Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Secretary, stated that he was resigning from all of his positions at the Company effective April 15, 2013. The Chairman of the Audit Committee and each of the other non-management members of the Board of Directors spoke with Mr. Altamirano about the reasons for his departure. Following these discussions, the Board of Directors accepted Mr. Altamirano’s resignation.

Narrative Disclosure to the Summary Compensation Table

The goal of our executive compensation program is to attract and retain qualified individuals and motivate those individuals to perform at the highest of professional levels and to contribute to our growth and success. Due to our limited resources, we currently have only one named executive officer: Lalit Dhadphale, our President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors. He has agreed to below market compensation and elected not to receive a salary beginning January 1, 2013 in order to conserve the Company’s resources to support its development activities. Pursuant to the rules of the SEC, we have also included the compensation information for Eduardo Altamirano, our former Chief Financial Officer, who resigned in April 2013.
 
Consistent with the size and nature of our Company, our executive compensation program is simple, consisting of a base salary and long-term equity awards in the form of stock options.
 
Base Salary: The Compensation Committee or the Board reviews the base salaries of our named executive officers at least annually. The annual base salary of our named executive officer is reflected in the Summary Compensation Table. Due to our resource restrictions, our existing executive officer’s base salary is below market and he has elected not to receive his base salary since January 1, 2013.
 
Long-Term Incentive Awards: The Board has a policy to issue long-term equity awards in the form of stock options. Our long-term equity awards align the interests of our named executive officers with those of our stockholders, thereby creating an incentive to build stockholder value and acting as a retention tool.

On August 31, 2011, we awarded Mr. Dhadphale a five year incentive stock option to purchase 250,000 shares of common stock at $3.80 per share.  These options vest on the date Mr. Dhadphale personally, by means of a pledge of common stock, secures a pending economic development loan to the Company from the Commonwealth of Kentucky. As of the filing date of this report, the Company does not intend to pursue the aforementioned financing. Accordingly, it is not probable that this option will vest and no compensation expense has been recorded.

On October 15, 2012, we awarded Mr. Altamirano a ten year incentive stock option to purchase 250,000 shares of common stock at $4.95 per share.  The options vest in equal installments on October 15, 2013, October 15, 2014 and October 15, 2014.  These options were forfeited on April 15, 2013, when Mr. Altamirano terminated his employment.

Equity Compensation Plan Information

The 2009 Incentive Compensation Plan (the “2009 Plan”) was approved on May 15, 2009 and June 4, 2009, and the increase in the total number of shares of common stock issuable pursuant to the 2009 Plan to 2,881,425 shares was approved on October 4, 2010 and September 20, 2011, by the Board of Directors and the Stockholders, respectively.

The 2009 Plan imposes individual limitations on the amount of certain awards. Under these limitations, during any fiscal year of our Company, the number of options, stock appreciation rights, shares of restricted stock, shares of deferred stock, performance shares and other stock based-awards granted to any one participant under the 2009 Plan may not exceed 250,000 shares, subject to adjustment in certain circumstances. The maximum amount that may be paid out as performance units in any 12-month performance period is $2,000,000, and the maximum amount that may be paid out as performance units in any performance period greater than 12 months is $4,000,000. The maximum term of each option or stock appreciation right, the times at which each option or stock appreciation right will be exercisable, and provisions requiring forfeiture of unexercised options or stock appreciation rights at or following termination of employment generally are fixed by the Board, except that no option or stock appreciation right may have a term exceeding ten years. The exercise price per share subject to an option and the grant price of a stock appreciation rights are determined by the Board, but in the case of an incentive stock option (ISO) must not be less than the fair market value of a share of common stock on the date of grant. As of December 31, 2012, stock options to purchase up to 2,183,899 shares of Common Stock have been awarded under the 2009 Plan, with exercise prices ranging from $0.80 to $6.99 per share, of which 1,105,105 are exercisable. All of these options have a five or ten year term.

Applicable percentages are based on 26,050,960 shares of common stock outstanding on July 1, 2013, adjusted as required by rules promulgated by the SEC.  Pursuant to SEC rules, a person or entity is considered to beneficially own shares of common stock if the person or entity has or shares (i) voting power, which includes the power to vote or to direct the voting of the shares, or (ii) investment power, which includes the power to dispose or direct the disposition of the shares.  Unless otherwise indicated, a person has sole voting power and sole investment power with respect to the indicated shares.  Under applicable regulations, a person is deemed to have beneficial ownership of any shares of common stock which may be acquired within 60 days of the calculation date pursuant to the exercise of outstanding stock options or warrants or the conversion of our outstanding preferred stock.  Shares of common stock which may be acquired through exercisable stock options or warrants or the conversion of preferred stock are deemed to be outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage of outstanding common stock owned by such person or group but are not deemed outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage of common stock owned by any other person or group. There were 422,315 shares of Series B preferred stock outstanding on July 1, 2013, which shares are convertible into 3,471,428 shares of common stock, based on a conversion factor of approximately 8.22.  There were 10,000 shares of Series C preferred stock outstanding on July 1, 2013, which shares are not convertible into shares of common stock.

Related Party Transactions

Our Audit Committee will review and discuss with management potential transactions with related parties. Related party transactions requiring Audit Committee approval include transactions that are significant in size and transactions that involve terms or aspects that differ from those which would be entered into between independent parties.  As part of the Board’s plan to remediate the weaknesses in our internal controls and improve the quality of our policies and procedures, the Company intends to adopt a more robust formal written policy on related party transactions. Although we have not adopted formal procedures for the review, approval or ratification of transactions with related persons, we adhere to a general policy that such transactions should only be entered into if they are on terms that, on the whole, are no more favorable, or no less favorable, than those available from unaffiliated third parties and their approval is in accordance with applicable law.

Between June 2009 and April 2012, an employee who is the son of the managing member of Cape Bear, received advances from the Company in various forms. In April 2012, this employee voluntarily resigned from the Company.  At the height, the balance of these advances totaled $391,468 including interest. Principal repayments towards the outstanding advances aggregating $235,000 have been made during 2012. Previously included in accounts receivable, the outstanding amount was reclassified under Stockholders’ Deficiency as the Company determined to exercise its rights associated with a pledge agreement for 42,860 shares of common stock. As of December 31, 2012, the Company established a $137,610 reserve for the unsecured balance (based on the recent market price of the common stock) such that the carrying value of these advances was $18,858.  The Company continues to pursue all avenues of collection. The Company also provided fulfillment services at no charge to a business partly owned by a member of his household. The Company’s Board of Directors determined that not all of these advances were approved in accordance with the Company’s policy on related party transactions, documented appropriately or recorded correctly in the Company’s accounting system. As a result, the Company was not able to monitor the outstanding amount of these advances on a continuous basis. The individual agreed to repay the remaining balance with interest based on prime rate on the first business day of the calendar quarter.

Director Independence
 
Our Board of Directors has determined that Youssef Bennani, Joseph Savarino and Ambassador Ned L. Siegel are “independent” within the meaning of Rule 5605(a)(2) of the National Association of Securities Dealers’ Marketplace Rules of the Nasdaq Stock Market (the “NASDAQ Rules”), and that they are also “independent” for purposes of Rule 10A-3 of the Exchange Act. Lalit Dhadphale and Matthew Stecker are not “independent” within the meaning of Rule 5605(a)(2) of the NASDAQ Rules.

In making each of these independence determinations, our Board of Directors considered and broadly assessed, from the standpoint of materiality and independence, all of the information provided by each director in response to detailed inquiries concerning the director’s independence and any direct or indirect business, family, employment, transactional or other relationship or affiliation of such director with our company.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
 

To the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors and Stockholders of
HealthWarehouse.com, Inc.

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of HealthWarehouse.com, Inc. and Subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2012 and 2011, and the related consolidated statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ deficiency and cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we 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 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 also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of HealthWarehouse.com, Inc. and Subsidiaries as of December 31, 2012 and 2011, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the years then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As more fully described in Note 2, the Company has incurred significant losses and needs to raise additional funds to meet its obligations and sustain its operations.  These conditions raise 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 2. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
