Item 1. Business.

As used in this Annual Report on Form 10-K (this “Report”), references to the “Company,” the “Registrant,” “we,” “our” or “us” refer to Darkstar Ventures, Inc., unless the context otherwise indicates.

Forward-Looking Statements

Certain statements contained in this report, including statements regarding our business, financial condition, our intent, belief or current expectations, primarily with respect to the future operating performance of the Company and and other statements contained herein regarding matters that are not historical facts, are "forward-looking" statements. You can identify forward-looking statements by those that are not historical in nature, particularly those that use terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “contemplates,” “estimates,” “believes,” “plans,” “projected,” “predicts,” “potential,” or “continue” or the negative of these similar terms. Future filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, future press releases and future oral or written statements made by us or with our approval, which are not statements of historical fact, may contain forward-looking statements. Because such statements include risks and uncertainties, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements.

All forward-looking statements speak only as of the date on which they are made. We undertake no obligation to update such statements to reflect events that occur or circumstances that exist after the date on which they are made, except as required by federal securities and any other applicable law.

Overview

We were incorporated on May 8, 2007 in the State of Nevada. We are a development stage company that was originally established to offer eco-friendly health and wellness products to the general public via the internet. As we had previously disclosed, on November 20, 2012, we entered into a binding letter of intent (“LOI”) with Real Aesthetic, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Real Aesthetic”), to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock in exchange for common stock of the Company. The closing of the transactions contemplated by the LOI was subject to the completion of the due diligence investigation of both parties, execution and delivery of documentation for the transaction, consents from the respective boards of directors of both companies and any third parties and the delivery of audited financial statements by Real Aesthetic. Subsequently, we decided not to pursue the contemplated transaction with Real Aesthetic. The Company has since abandoned its business plan and is now seeking an operating company with which to merge or to acquire.

On June 28, 2013, FINRA confirmed the 15-1 forward stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock authorized by our Board of Directors. The record date of the split was July 8, 2013. All share and per share amounts presented in this Annual Report and the financial statements and notes thereto have been adjusted for the stock split.

We are now considered a blank check company. The Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) defines those companies as “any development stage company that is issuing a penny stock, within the meaning of Section 3 (a)(51) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and that has no specific business plan or purpose, or has indicated that its business plan is to merge with an unidentified company or companies.” Under SEC Rule 12b-2 under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), we also qualify as a “shell company,” because we have no or nominal assets (other than cash) and no or nominal operations. Many states have enacted statutes, rules and regulations limiting the sale of securities of “blank check” companies in their respective jurisdictions. Management does not intend to undertake any efforts to cause a market to develop in our securities, either debt or equity, until we have successfully concluded a business combination. We intend to comply with the periodic reporting requirements of the Exchange Act for so long as we are subject to those requirements.

Our current business plan is to attempt to identify and negotiate with a business target for the merger of that entity with and into the Company. In certain instances, a target company may wish to become a subsidiary of the Company or may wish to contribute or sell assets to the Company rather than to merge. No assurances can be given that we will be successful in identifying or negotiating with any target company. We seek to provide a method for a foreign or domestic private company to become a reporting or public company whose securities are qualified for trading in the United States secondary markets.
 
A business combination with a target company normally will involve the transfer to the target company of the majority of the issued and outstanding common stock of the Company, and the substitution by the target company of its own management and board of directors. No assurances can be given that we will be able to enter into a business combination, or, if we do enter into such a business combination, no assurances can be given as to the terms of a business combination, or as to the nature of the target company.

Competition

The Company is an insignificant participant among firms which engage in business combinations with, or financing of, development stage enterprises. There are many established management and financial consulting companies and venture capital firms which have significantly greater financial and personnel resources, technical expertise and experience than the Company. In view of the Company's limited financial resources and management availability, the Company will continue to be at a significant competitive disadvantage vis-a-vis the Company's competitors.

Regulation and Taxation

The Investment Company Act of 1940 defines an "investment company" as an issuer which is or holds itself out as being engaged primarily in the business of investing, reinvesting or trading of securities. While the Company does not intend to engage in such activities, the Company could become subject to regulation under the Investment Company Act of 1940 in the event the Company obtains or continues to hold a minority interest in a number of development stage enterprises. The Company could be expected to incur significant registration and compliance costs if required to register under the Investment Company Act of 1940. Accordingly, management will continue to review the Company's activities from time to time with a view toward reducing the likelihood the Company could be classified as an "investment company."

The Company intends to structure a merger or acquisition in such manner as to minimize Federal and state tax consequences to the Company and to any target company.

Employees

We are a development stage company and currently have no full time employees. All functions including development, strategy, negotiations and administration are currently being provided by our executive officers, who are also our directors, on a voluntary basis.
 
Item 1A. Risk Factors

Item 2. Properties

We do not lease or own any real property. We do not believe that at this stage in our development we need physical space. We use the executive offices of our consultants, First Line Capital, as a mailing address. The address is 410 Park Avenue, 15th Floor, New York, NY 10022. First Line is also a stockholder in the Company. We are not paying anything for using their address as our mailing address. We believe that until and unless our business develops, we do not need physical office space.
 
Item 3. Legal Proceedings

There are no pending legal proceedings to which the Company is a party or in which any director, officer or affiliate of the Company, any owner of record or beneficially of more than 5% of any class of voting securities of the Company, or security holder is a party adverse to the Company or has a material interest adverse to the Company. The Company’s property is not the subject of any pending legal proceedings.
 
Item 4. Mine Safety Disclosures

Overview

We are a development stage company that was originally established to offer eco-friendly health and wellness products to the general public via the internet. As we had previously disclosed, on November 20, 2012, we entered into the LOI with Real Aesthetic to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock in exchange for common stock of the Company. The closing of the transactions contemplated by the LOI was subject to the completion of the due diligence investigation of both parties, execution and delivery of documentation for the transaction, consents from the respective boards of directors of both companies and any third parties and the delivery of audited financial statements by Real Aesthetic. Subsequently, we decided not to pursue the contemplated transaction with Real Aesthetic.

Plan of Operation

Given our limited resources and the fact that we have never generated any revenues from the sale of our products, we are no longer focused on operating a business and have abandoned our business plan. As we are no longer pursuing a transaction with Real Aesthetics, we are attempting to identify and negotiate with another company for the business combination or merger of that entity with and into our company. We would seek, investigate and, if such investigation warrants, acquire an interest in one or more business opportunities presented to it by persons or firms who or which desire to seek the perceived advantages of a publicly held corporation. At this time, we have no plan, proposal, agreement, understanding or arrangement to acquire or merge with any specific business or company, and the Company has not identified any specific business or company for investigation and evaluation. No member of management or promoter of the Company has had any material discussions with any other company with respect to any acquisition of that company.

We will not restrict our search for another target company to any specific business, industry or geographical location, and the Company may participate in a business venture of virtually any kind or nature. The discussion of the proposed plan of operation under this caption and throughout this Annual Report is purposefully general and is not meant to be restrictive of the Company's virtually unlimited discretion to search for and enter into potential business opportunities.

Sources of Opportunities

The Company anticipates that business opportunities for possible acquisition will be referred by various sources, including its officers and directors, professional advisers, securities broker-dealers, venture capitalists, members of the financial community, and others who may present unsolicited proposals.
 
The Company will seek a potential business opportunity from all known sources, but will rely principally on personal contacts of its officers and directors as well as indirect associations between them and other business and professional people. It is not presently anticipated that the Company will engage professional firms specializing in business acquisitions or reorganizations.
 
The officers and directors of the Company are currently employed in other positions and will devote only a portion of their time (not more than three hour per week) to the business affairs of the Company, until such time as an acquisition has been determined to be highly favorable, at which time they expect to spend full time in investigating and closing any acquisition for a period of two weeks. In addition, in the face of competing demands for their time, the officers and directors may grant priority to their full-time positions rather than to the Company.
 
Evaluation of Opportunities
 
The analysis of new business opportunities will be undertaken by or under the supervision of the officers and directors of the Company. Management intends to concentrate on identifying prospective business opportunities which may be brought to its attention through present associations with management. In analyzing prospective business opportunities, management will consider such matters as the available technical, financial and managerial resources; working capital and other financial requirements; history of operation, if any; prospects for the future; present and expected competition; the quality and experience of management services which may be available and the depth of that management; the potential for further research, development or exploration; specific risk factors not now foreseeable but which then may be anticipated to impact the proposed activities of the Company; the potential for growth or expansion; the potential for profit; the perceived public recognition or acceptance of products, services or trades; name identification; and other relevant factors. Officers and directors of the Company will meet personally with management and key personnel of the firm sponsoring the business opportunity as part of their investigation. To the extent possible, the Company intends to utilize written reports and personal investigation to evaluate the above factors. The Company will not acquire or merge with any company for which audited financial statements cannot be obtained.

It may be anticipated that any opportunity in which the Company participates will present certain risks. Many of these risks cannot be adequately identified prior to selection of the specific opportunity, and the Company's stockholders must, therefore, depend on the ability of management to identify and evaluate such risk. In the case of some of the opportunities available to the Company, it may be anticipated that the promoters thereof have been unable to develop a going concern or that such business is in its development stage in that it has not generated significant revenues from its principal business activities prior to the Company's anticipation. There is a risk, even after the Company's participation in the activity and the related expenditure of the Company's funds, that the combined enterprises will still be unable to become a going concern or advance beyond the development stage. Many of the opportunities may involve new and untested products, processes, or market strategies which may not succeed. Such risks will be assumed by the Company and, therefore, its stockholders.
 
The Company will not restrict its search for any specific kind of business, but may acquire a venture which is in its preliminary or development stage, which is already in operation, or in essentially any stage of its corporate life. It is currently impossible to predict the status of any business in which the Company may become engaged, in that such business may need additional capital, may merely desire to have its shares publicly traded, or may seek other perceived advantages which the Company may offer.

Acquisition of Opportunities
 
In implementing a structure for a particular business acquisition, the Company may become a party to a merger, consolidation, reorganization, joint venture, franchise or licensing agreement with another corporation or entity. It may also purchase stock or assets of an existing business. On the consummation of a transaction, it is possible that the present management and shareholders of the Company will not be in control of the Company. In addition, a majority or all of the Company's officers and directors may, as part of the terms of the acquisition transaction, resign and be replaced by new officers and directors without a vote of the Company's stockholders.
 
It is anticipated that any securities issued in any such reorganization would be issued in reliance on exemptions from registration under applicable Federal and state securities laws. In some circumstances, however, as a negotiated element of this transaction, the Company may agree to register such securities either at the time the transaction is consummated, under certain conditions, or at specified time thereafter. The issuance of substantial additional securities and their potential sale into any trading market which may develop in the Company's common stock may have a depressive effect on such market. While the actual terms of a transaction to which the Company may be a party cannot be predicted, it may be expected that the parties to the business transaction will find it desirable to avoid the creation of a taxable event and thereby structure the acquisition in a so called "tax free" reorganization under Sections 368(a)(1) or 351 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"). In order to obtain tax free treatment under the Code, it may be necessary for the owners of the acquired business to own 80% or more of the voting stock of the surviving entity. In such event, the shareholders of the Company, including investors in this offering, would retain less than 20% of the issued and outstanding shares of the surviving entity, which could result in significant dilution in the equity of such shareholders.
 
As part of the Company's investigation, officers and directors of the Company will meet personally with management and key personnel, may visit and inspect material facilities, obtain independent analysis or verification of certain information provided, check references of management and key personnel, and take other reasonable investigative measures, to the extent of the Company's limited financial resources and management expertise.
 
The manner in which each Company participates in an opportunity will depend on the nature of the opportunity, the respective needs and desires of the Company and other parties, the management of the opportunity, and the relative negotiating strength of the Company and such other management.

With respect to any mergers or acquisitions, negotiations with target company management will be expected to focus on the percentage of the Company which target company shareholders would acquire in exchange for their stockholdings in the target company. Depending upon, among other things, the target company's assets and liabilities, the Company's stockholders will in all likelihood hold a lesser percentage ownership interest in the Company following any merger or acquisition. The percentage ownership may be subject to significant reduction in the event the Company acquires a target company with substantial assets. Any merger or acquisition effected by the Company can be expected to have a significant dilutive effect on the percentage of shares held by the Company's then stockholders.
 
The Company will not have sufficient funds (unless it is able to raise funds in a private placement) to undertake any significant development, marketing and manufacturing of any products which may be acquired.
 
Accordingly, following the acquisition of any such product, the Company will, in all likelihood, be required to either seek debt or equity financing or obtain funding from third parties, in exchange for which the Company would probably be required to give up a substantial portion of its interest in any acquired product. There is no assurance that the Company will be able either to obtain additional financing or interest third parties in providing funding for the further development, marketing and manufacturing of any products acquired.
 
It is anticipated that the investigation of specific business opportunities and the negotiation, drafting and execution of relevant agreements, disclosure documents and other instruments will require substantial management time and attention and substantial costs for accountants, attorneys and others. If a decision is made not to participate in a specific business opportunity the costs therefore incurred in the related investigation would not be recoverable.
 
Furthermore, even if an agreement is reached for the participation in a specific business opportunity, the failure to consummate that transaction may result in a loss to the Company of the related costs incurred.
 
Management believes that the Company may be able to benefit from the use of "leverage" in the acquisition of a business opportunity. Leveraging a transaction involves the acquisition of a business through incurring significant indebtedness for a large percentage of the purchase price for that business.
 
Through a leveraged transaction, the Company would be required to use less of its available funds for acquiring the business opportunity and, therefore, could commit those funds to the operations of the business opportunity, to acquisition of other business opportunities or to other activities. The borrowing involved in a leveraged transaction would ordinarily be secured by the assets of the business opportunity to be acquired. If the business opportunity acquired is not able to generate sufficient revenues to make payments on the debt incurred by the Company to acquire that business opportunity, the lender would be able to exercise the remedies provided by law or by contract. These leveraging techniques, while reducing the amount of funds that the Company must commit to acquiring a business opportunity, may correspondingly increase the risk of loss to the Company. No assurance can be given as to the terms or the availability of financing for any acquisition by the Company. During periods when interest rates are relatively high, the benefits of leveraging are not as great as during periods of lower interest rates because the investment in the business opportunity held on a leveraged basis will only be profitable if it generates sufficient revenues to cover the related debt and other costs of the financing. Lenders from which the Company may obtain funds for purposes of a leveraged buy-out may impose restrictions on the future borrowing, distribution, and operating policies of the Company. It is not possible at this time to predict the restrictions, if any, which lenders may impose or the impact thereof on the Company.

Results of Operations

For the years ended July 31, 2013 and July 31, 2012

Revenues

The Company did not generate any revenues during the years ended July 31, 2013 and July 31, 2012.

Total operating expenses

During the year ended July 31, 2013, total expenses were $60,284 which consisted of professional fees of $40,500 general and administrative expenses of $9,784 and consulting fees of $10,000 as compared with total expenses of $45,721 during the year ended July 31, 2012, which consisted of professional fees of $31,366, general and administrative expenses of $5,188 and consulting fees of $9,167.

Net loss

During the year ended July 31, 2013, the Company had a net loss of $65,017 compared with a net loss of $45,863 for the year ended July 31, 2012.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
As of July 31, 2013, the Company had a cash balance of $776. We currently have the ability to borrow any amount in increments of up to $50,000 from our consultant First Line Capital, LLC, a New York limited liability company (“First Line”), with all such borrowings along with accrued interest on the outstanding balance at 8% per annum, due March 31, 2014. For the period April 1, 2013 to October 7, 2013, the note was in default and interest was accrued at the default rate of 15% per annum. As of July 31, 2013 we were indebted to First Line in the amount of $59,350.

We entered into a one-year consulting agreement commencing September 1, 2011 with First Line under which First Line will provide certain business and corporate development services to us for an annual consulting fee of $10,000 payable on August 31st. The agreement will automatically renew for successive one-year terms unless terminated by either party at least 10 days prior to the end of the then current term. Accordingly, the consulting agreement was automatically extended through September 1, 2014.

The Company believes that its current cash is insufficient to fund its expenses over the next twelve months. There can be no assurance that additional capital will be available to the Company. Other than our agreement with First Line to borrow any amount in increments of up to $50,000, the Company currently has no agreements, arrangements or understandings with any person to obtain funds through bank loans, lines of credit or any other sources. Since the Company has no such arrangements or plans currently in effect, its inability to raise funds for the above purposes will have a severe negative impact on its ability to remain a viable company.

Going Concern Consideration

We are a development stage company. We had no revenues and incurred a net loss of $65,017 for the year ended July 31, 2013 and a net loss of $128,203 for the period May 8, 2007 (inception) to July 31, 2013. We had a working capital deficiency and stockholders' deficiency of $92,553 as of July 31, 2013. These factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on our ability to raise additional capital. Our financial statements do not include any adjustments that may be necessary if we are unable to continue as a going concern.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

For revenue from product sales, the Company will recognize revenue in accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 104, “Revenue Recognition” (SAB No. 104), which superseded Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 101, “Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements” (SAB No. 101). SAB No. 104 requires that four basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred; (3) the selling price is fixed and determinable; and (4) collectability is reasonably assured. Determination of criteria (3) and (4) are based on management’s judgment regarding the fixed nature of the selling prices of the products delivered and the collectability of those amounts. Provisions for discounts and rebates to customers, estimated returns and allowance, and other adjustments will be provided for in the same period the related sales are recorded.
 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
 
Board of Directors and Stockholders
Darkstar Ventures, Inc.

We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Darkstar Ventures, Inc. (a Development Stage Company) (“the Company”) as of July 31, 2013 and 2012, and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity (deficiency) and cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended July 31, 2013, and the period May 8, 2007 (inception) to July 31, 2013. 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 audit.

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 audit 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. Also, an audit 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 financial position of Darkstar Ventures, Inc. at July 31, 2013 and 2012, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the two years in the period ended July 31, 2013, and the period May 8, 2007 (inception) to July 31, 2013 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Company is a development stage company, had no revenues and has incurred a cumulative net loss since inception. In addition, the Company has a working capital deficiency and stockholders’ deficiency at July 31, 2013. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans regarding those matters are also described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

DARKSTAR VENTURES, INC.
(A DEVELOPMENT STAGE COMPANY)
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 
NOTE 1 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Organization

Darkstar Ventures, Inc. (“the Company” or “we”) was incorporated on May 8, 2007 under the laws of the State of Nevada.

The Company has not yet generated revenues from planned principal operations and is considered a development stage company. The Company originally intended to market and sell eco-friendly health and wellness products to the general public via the internet. The Company has been dormant from its inception to May 1, 2011.

On November 20, 2012, we entered into a binding letter of intent (“LOI”) with Real Aesthetic, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Real Aesthetic”), to acquire all of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock in exchange for common stock of the Company. The closing of the transactions contemplated by the LOI was subject to the completion of the due diligence investigation of both parties, execution and delivery of documentation for the transaction, consents from the respective boards of directors of both companies and any third parties and the delivery of audited financial statements by Real Aesthetic. Subsequently, we decided not to pursue the contemplated transaction with Real Aesthetic.

The Company has since abandoned its business plan and is now seeking an operating company with which to merge or to acquire. There can be no assurance that we will be able to identify a company and successfully effect such a business combination or merger.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly-liquid investments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

Revenue Recognition

For revenue from product sales, the Company will recognize revenue in accordance with Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 104, “Revenue Recognition” (SAB No. 104), which superseded Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 101, “Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements” (SAB No. 101). SAB No. 104 requires that four basic criteria must be met before revenue can be recognized: (1) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; (2) delivery has occurred; (3) the selling price is fixed and determinable; and (4) collectibility is reasonably assured. Determination of criteria (3) and (4) are based on management’s judgment regarding the fixed nature of the selling prices of the products delivered and the collectibility of those amounts. Provisions for discounts and rebates to customers, estimated returns and allowance, and other adjustments will be provided for in the same period the related sales are recorded.

Advertising Costs

Advertising costs will be charged to operations when incurred. The Company did not incur any advertising costs during the year ended July 31, 2013 and for the period May 8, 2007 (inception) to July 31, 2013.

Income Taxes

The Company accounts for income taxes using the asset and liability method, the objective of which is to establish deferred tax assets and liabilities for the temporary differences between the financial reporting and the tax bases of the Company’s assets and liabilities at enacted tax rates expected to be in effect when such amounts are realized or settled. A valuation allowance related to deferred tax assets is recorded when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 1 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Continued)
 
Website Development Costs

The Company accounts for website development costs pursuant to FASB Accounting Standards Codification 350-50-25, Website Development Costs, which specifies the appropriate accounting for costs incurred in connection with the development and maintenance of websites. Under 350-50-25, costs related to certain website development activities are expensed as incurred (such as planning and operating stage activities). Costs relating to certain website application and infrastructure developments are generally capitalized, and are amortized over its estimated useful life of two (2) years. Website development costs totaling $5,000 were charged to expense during the year ended July 31, 2011.

Loss Per Share

The computation of loss per share is based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period presented. Diluted loss per common share is the same as basic loss per common share as there are no potentially dilutive securities outstanding (options and warrants).

Research and Development

Research and development costs will be charged to expense in the period incurred. The Company did not incur any research and development costs during the year ended July 31, 2013 and the period May 8, 2007 (inception) to July 31, 2013.

Accounting Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Fair Value Measurements

The authoritative guidance for fair value measurements defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or the most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. Market participants are buyers and sellers in the principal market that are (i) independent, (ii) knowledgeable, (iii) able to transact, and (iv) willing to transact. The guidance describes a fair value hierarchy based on the levels of inputs, or which the first two are considered observable and the last unobservable, that may be used to measure fair value which are the following:

Level 1: Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2: Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active, or other inputs that are observable or corroborated by observable market data or substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are supported by little or no market activity and that are significant to the value of the assets or liabilities.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 1 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Continued)

Fair Value Measurements (continued)

The Company's financial instruments include cash and equivalents and accounts payable. These items are determined to be a Level 1 fair value measurement.

The carrying amounts of cash and equivalents and accounts payable approximates fair value because of the short maturity of these instruments. The recorded value of long-term debt approximates its fair value as the terms and rates approximate market rates.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Management does not believe there would have been a material effect on the accompanying financial statements had any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards been adopted in the current period.
 
NOTE 2 - Going Concern

The Company is a development stage company and has not commenced planned principal operations. The Company had no revenues and incurred a net loss of $65,017 for the year ended July 31, 2013, and a net loss of $ 45,863 for the year ended July 31, 2012. In addition, the Company had a working capital deficiency and stockholders’ deficiency of $92,553 at July 31, 2013. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

There can be no assurance that sufficient funds required during the next year or thereafter will be generated from operations or that funds will be available from external sources such as debt or equity financings or other potential sources. The lack of additional capital resulting from the inability to generate cash flow from operations or to raise capital from external sources would force the Company to substantially curtail or cease operations and would, therefore, have a material adverse effect on its business. Furthermore, there can be no assurance that any such required funds, if available, will be available on attractive terms or that they will not have a significant dilutive effect on the Company’s existing stockholders.

The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability or classification of asset-carrying amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

The Company is attempting to address its lack of liquidity by raising additional funds, either in the form of debt or equity or some combination thereof. During the year ended July 31, 2013 the Company borrowed $42,150. There can be no assurances that the Company will be able to raise the additional funds it requires.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 3 - Note Payable

Note payable consists of the following:

Note payable, First Line Capital, LLC, bearing interest at 8% per annum and due March 31, 2013. For the period April 1, 2013 to October 7, 2013, the Note was in default and interest was accrued at the default rate of 15% (See Note 8). The note allows the Company to borrow any amount in increments of up to $50,000. Accrued interest on this note was $4,875 and $142 for the years ended July 31, 2013 and July 31, 2012, respectively.
 
Balance of note July 31, 2013   $ 59,350  
 
NOTE 4 - Commitments and Contingencies

On September 1, 2011 the Company entered into a one-year consulting agreement with First Line Capital, LLC (“First Line”) under which First Line will provide certain business and corporate development services to the Company for an annual consulting fee of $10,000 payable on each August 31 during the term of the agreement beginning on August 31, 2012. The agreement will automatically renew for successive one-year terms unless terminated by either party at least 10 days prior to the end of the then current term. As of July 31, 2013 accrued consulting fees included in Accounts Payable amounted to $19,167.

NOTE 5 - Income Taxes

At July 31, 2013 the Company had available net-operating loss carryforwards for Federal tax purposes of approximately $129,000, which may be applied against future taxable income, if any, through 2032. Certain significant changes in ownership of the Company may restrict the future utilization of these tax loss carryforwards.

At July 31, 2013 the Company had a deferred tax asset of approximately $44,000 representing the benefit of its net operating loss carryforwards. The Company has not recognized the tax benefit because realization of the tax benefit is uncertain and thus a valuation allowance has been fully provided against the deferred tax asset. The difference between the Federal Statutory Rate of 34% and the Company’s effective tax rate of 0% is due to an increase in the valuation allowance of approximately $22,000 for the year ended July 31, 2013.

NOTE 6 - Common Stock

 In May 1, 2011 the Company sold 97,500,000 shares of common stock for $650 to the Founder of the Company.

 On June 28, 2011 the Company sold 52,500,000 shares of common stock for $35,000 to private investors.

On May 23, 2013 the Company’s CEO returned 42,855,000 shares of common stock as additional paid in capital.

On June 28, 2013 FINRA confirmed a 15 for 1 forward split of the Company’s common stock to stockholders of record on July 8, 2013 as authorized by the Company’s Board of Directors. All share and per share data have been retroactively restated to reflect this recapitalization.

NOTE 7 - Preferred Stock

The Company’s Board of Directors may issue authorized but unissued shares of preferred stock in series and at the time of issuance, determine the rights, preferences and limitation of each series. The holders of preferred stock may be entitled to receive a preference payment in the event of any liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Company before any payment is made to the holders of the common stock. Furthermore, the board of directors could issue preferred stock with voting and other rights that could adversely affect the voting power of the holders of the common stock.
 
NOTE 8 - Subsequent Events

On October 8, 2013, the Note Payable to First Line Capital LLC was extended to March 31, 2014. As of such date, it is no longer in default (See Note 3).

During the period August 1, 2013 to September 30, 2013, the Company borrowed an additional $14,200 on the Note Payable to First Line Capital, increasing the balance owed to $73,550 (See Note 3).

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures

EVALUATION OF DISCLOSURE CONTROLS

Our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, after evaluating the effectiveness of the Company’s “disclosure controls and procedures” (as defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e)) as of July 31, 2013, the end of the period covered by this annual report, has concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective such that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure.

MANAGEMENT’S REPORT ON INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING

Management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. As defined in Rules 13a-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, internal control over financial reporting is a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the Company’s principal executive, principal operating and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, and effected by the Company’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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The Company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records, that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the Company’s assets; (2) 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 Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of the Company’s management and directors; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
 
Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
 
Our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting at July 31, 2013. In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control—Integrated Framework. Based on that assessment under those criteria, management has determined that, as of July 31, 2013, our internal control over financial reporting was effective.
 
This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management's report was not subject to attestation by the Company's registered public accounting firm pursuant to the exemption provided to issuers that are not “large accelerated filers” nor “accelerated filers” under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
 
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
 
There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during our last fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Item 10. Directors, Executive Officers and Corporate Governance.

Directors and Executive Officers

Set forth below are the names, ages and present principal occupations or employment, and material occupations, positions, offices or employments for the past five years of our current directors and executive officers.

Name and Business Address

Position
         
Chizkyau Lapin

Chairman, President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Director
Israel Povarsky
 
40
 
Secretary and Director
 
Chizkyau Lapin has been our Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer since we were established in May 2007.Since 2002, Mr. Lapin has owned and operated a small software development firm in Israel. Mr. Chizkyau’s experience in software development and small business management led to the conclusion that Mr. Chizkyau should serve as a director of our company.
 
Israel Povarsky has been a director and our Secretary since we were established in May 2007. Since 2006, Mr. Povarsky has also been a self employed freelance computer programmer specializing in HTML programming for various companies in Israel. Mr. Povarsky’s experience in computer programming led to the conclusion that Mr. Povarsky should serve as a director of our company.
 
Each director of the Company serves for a term of one year or until the successor is elected at the Company's annual stockholders’ meeting and is qualified, subject to removal by the Company's stockholders. Each officer serves, at the pleasure of the board of directors, for a term of one year and until the successor is elected at the annual meeting of the board of directors.

There are no familial relationships among any of our officers or directors. None of our directors or officers is a director in any other reporting companies. None of our directors or officers has been affiliated with any company that has filed for bankruptcy within the last ten years. The Company is not aware of any proceedings to which any of the Company’s officers or directors, or any associate of any such officer or director, is a party adverse to the Company or has a material interest adverse to the Company.

Code of Ethics; Financial Expert
 
Because of the small size and limited resources of the Company, we do not currently have a Code of Ethics applicable to our principal executive, financial and accounting officers. We do not have a “financial expert” on the board or an audit committee or nominating committee.

Potential Conflicts of Interest
 
Since we do not have an audit or compensation committee comprised of independent directors, the functions that would have been performed by such committees are performed by our directors. Thus, there is a potential conflict of interest in that our directors and officers have the authority to determine issues concerning management compensation and audit issues that may affect management decisions. We are not aware of any other conflicts of interest with any of our executives or directors.

All of our executive officers and directors have complied with the Section 16(a) filing requirements except that Chizkyau Lapin failed to timely file a Form 4 reporting the return of shares to the Company and the increase of his beneficial ownership due to the Company’s forward stock split.

The person is also deemed to be a beneficial owner of any security of which that person has a right to acquire beneficial ownership within 60 days. Under the Securities and Exchange Commission rules, more than one person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of the same securities, and a person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of securities as to which he or she may not have any pecuniary beneficial interest. Except as noted below, each person has sole voting and investment power.

Item 13. Certain Relationships and Related Transactions, and Director Independence.

We currently use as a mailing address the executive offices of our consultant, First Line Capital. No payment has been made to First Line Capital. We have a consulting agreement with First Line Capital for an annual fee of $10,000, payable on August 31st, pursuant to which First Line Capital provides certain business and corporate development services to us for during the term of the agreement. The agreement automatically renews for successive one-year terms unless terminated by either party at least 10 days prior to the end of the then current term. The current term expires September 1, 2014. 

We currently have the ability to borrow any amount in increments of up to $50,000 from First Line, with all such borrowings along with accrued interest on the outstanding balance at 8% per annum, due March 31, 2014. As of July 31, 2013 we are indebted to First Line in the amount of $59,350.

Director Independence

We are not subject to listing requirements of any national securities exchange or national securities association and, as a result, we are not at this time required to have our board comprised of a majority of “independent directors.” We do not believe that any of our directors currently meet the definition of “independent” as promulgated by the rules and regulations of the American Stock Exchange.
