Franchise Holdings International, Inc.
(A Development Stage Company)
Notes to Financial Statements
(Unaudited)


(1)           Nature of Organization and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Nature of Organization

Franchise Holdings International, Inc. (referenced as “we”, “us”, “our” in the accompanying notes) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on April 2, 2003. FSGI Corporation was incorporated in the State of Florida on May 15, 1997, and in a reorganization on December 21, 1998 with another corporation named The Martial Arts Network On-Line, Inc. (originally incorporated in Florida on May 23, 1996) changed its name to TMAN Global.Com, Inc. Franchise Holdings International, Inc. and TMAN Global.Com, Inc. consummated a merger on April 30, 2003 whereby Franchise Holdings International, Inc. exchanged 1 common share for all the 90,861 outstanding common shares of TMAN Global.Com, Inc. The purpose of the transaction was a change of domicile. Pursuant to the merger terms, Franchise Holdings International, Inc. was the surviving corporation and TMAN Global.Com, Inc. ceased to exist. The accompanying financial statements include the activities of Franchise Holdings International, Inc. and its predecessor corporations.  Currently we are engaged in evaluating franchise opportunities, and are considered to be in the development stage.

Going Concern

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.  As shown in the accompanying financial statements, the Company has a limited operating history and has suffered operating losses since Inception (March 12, 2001).  These factors, among others, may indicate that the Company may be unable to continue as a going concern.

In recent years, we have relied upon our president and certain shareholders to contribute capital to maintain our limited operations (see Notes 2 and 3). There is no assurance that these loans will continue, or that we will be successful in raising the capital required to continue our operations.

The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of assets and/or liabilities that might be necessary should we be unable to continue as a going concern.  Our continuation as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to meet our obligations on a timely basis, and, ultimately to attaining profitability.

Development Stage Company

We are in the development stage in accordance with the Accounting and Reporting by Development Stage Enterprises Topic of the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s Accounting Standards Codification (FASB ASC) 915.
 
Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles permits management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

We consider all highly liquid securities with original maturities of three months or less when acquired, to be cash equivalents.  We had no financial instruments that qualified as cash equivalents at December 31, 2013 (unaudited) and September 30, 2013.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The carrying amounts of cash and current liabilities approximate fair value because of the short-term maturity of these items. These fair value estimates are subjective in nature and involve uncertainties and matters of significant judgment, and, therefore, cannot be determined with precision.  Changes in assumptions could significantly affect these estimates.  We do not hold or issue financial instruments for trading purposes, nor do we utilize derivative instruments.

The FASB ASC clarifies that fair value is an exit price, representing the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. It also requires disclosure about how fair value is determined for assets and liabilities and establishes a hierarchy for which these assets and liabilities must be grouped, based on significant levels of inputs as follows:

 
Level 1:
Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
 
Level 2:
Quoted prices in active markets for similar assets and liabilities and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability.
 
Level 3:
Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which require the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.

The determination of where assets and liabilities fall within this hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

Earnings (Loss) per Common Share
 
We report earnings (loss) per share using a dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share.  Basic earnings (loss) per share excludes the impact of common stock equivalents.  Diluted earnings (loss) per share utilizes the average market price per share when applying the treasury stock method in determining common stock equivalents.  At December 31, 2013 (unaudited) and 2012 (unaudited), there were no variances between the basic and diluted loss per share as there were no potentially dilutive securities outstanding.
 
Income Taxes

We account for income taxes as required by the Income Tax Topic of the FASB ASC, which requires recognition of deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns.  Under this method, deferred tax liabilities and assets are determined based on the difference between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse.

Notes to Financial Statements
(Unaudited)

 
We have analyzed filing positions in all of the federal and state jurisdictions where we are required to file income tax returns, as well as all open tax years in these jurisdictions.  The Company has identified its federal tax return and its state tax return in Colorado as “major” tax jurisdictions, as defined.  We are not currently under examination by the Internal Revenue Service or any other jurisdiction.  The Company believes that its income tax filing positions and deductions will be sustained on audit and does not anticipate any adjustments that will result in a material adverse effect on the Company’s financial condition, results of operations, or cash flow.  Therefore, no reserves for uncertain income tax positions have been recorded. 

Stock-Based Compensation

Stock-based compensation is accounted for under ASC 718 "Share-Based Payment", using the modified prospective method. ASC 718 requires the recognition of the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments in the financial statements and is measured based on the grant date fair value of the award. ASC 718 also requires the stock option compensation expense to be recognized over the period during which an employee is required to provide service in exchange for the award (generally the vesting period).

Fiscal Year-end

The Company operates on a September 30 year-end.

(3)           Notes Payable

At September 30, 2008, we had $271,759 in notes payable outstanding to non-related parties, currently due, bearing interest at rates from 10 to 12 percent per annum, and convertible into common stock at $1 to $3 per share. Accrued interest payable under the notes at September 30, 2008 was $238,580. During 2009, the noteholders agreed to cancel the conversion feature and settle their notes upon payment of cumulative settlement amounts totaling $25,650 in cash and 20,000 common shares. The note settlements were finalized in the first quarter of fiscal year September 30, 2009. An officer provided (out of his personal shares in Franchise Holdings International, Inc.) the 20,000 shares for the note settlement. Pursuant to the note settlement, the noteholders, who were owed a total of $510,339, were given 20,000 of the Company’s common shares (by an officer out of his personal holdings) in settlement of $170,729 and  $25,650 in cash as full settlement, resulting in a gain on debt relief for the Company totaling $313,960.

ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with, and is qualified in its entirety by, the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in, Item 1 in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. This item contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Actual results may differ materially from those indicated in such forward-looking statements.

Forward-Looking Statements

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and the documents incorporated herein by reference contain forward-looking statements.  Such forward-looking statements are based on current expectations, estimates, and projections about our industry, management beliefs, and certain assumptions made by our management.  Words such as “anticipates”, “expects”, “intends”, “plans”, “believes”, “seeks”, “estimates”, variations of such words, and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements.  These statements are not guarantees of future performance and are subject to certain risks, uncertainties, and assumptions that are difficult to predict; therefore, actual results may differ materially from those expressed or forecasted in any such forward-looking statements.  Unless required by law, we undertake no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events, or otherwise.  However, readers should carefully review the risk factors set forth herein and in other reports and documents that we file from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission, particularly the Annual Reports on Form 10-K, Quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and any Current Reports on Form 8-K.

Overview and History

We were originally incorporated as FSGI Corporation under the laws of the State of Florida in 1997 as a holding company for the purpose of acquiring Financial Standards Group, Inc. (FSG). That year FSGI Corporation acquired FSG, a Florida company organized in October 1989, to assist credit unions in performing financial services. FSG offered financial services to credit unions as a wholly-owned subsidiary until its sale in January 2000.

On December 21, 1998, FSGI Corporation, at the time a publicly traded company trading on the OTCBB as FSGI, acquired all of the outstanding common stock of The Martial Arts Network On-Line, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of The Martial Arts Network, Inc. The Martial Arts Network On-Line, Inc., a company organized under the laws of the State of Florida, was developed in 1996 by its parent company The Martial Arts Network, Inc. as an electronic forum dedicated to promoting education and awareness of martial arts through its web site. Upon issuance of shares, and options to purchase shares of FSGI Corporation's common stock to The Martial Arts Network, Inc., that company became the controlling stockholder of FSGI Corporation.

TMANglobal.com, Inc. ("TMAN"), a corporation formed under the laws of the State of Florida, resulted from a merger between FSGI Corporation and The Martial Arts Network On-Line, Inc. on December 21, 1998.

Franchise Holdings was incorporated in the State of Nevada on April 2, 2003.  Franchise Holdings International, Inc. completed a merger with TMAN Global.com Inc. on April 30, 2003.  This merger was in the nature of a change in domicile of the Florida corporation to the State of Nevada, as well as the acquisition of a new business.   Since the inception of our current business operations, we have been in the business of acquiring franchise, license and distribution rights in new and emerging growth companies.

We have not been subject to any bankruptcy, receivership or similar proceeding.

Results of Operations

The following discussion involves our results of operations for the three months ended December 31, 2013.  This compares to the three months ended December 31, 2012.
 
Comparing our operations, we had revenues of $0 for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and $0 for the three months ended December 31, 2012.

Operating expenses, which include general and administrative expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2013 were $6,904 and $6,779 for the three months ended December 31, 2012.

The major components of operating expenses include professional fees, fees related to corporate compliance, stock transfer agent fees and bank charges.

We believe that operating expenses in current operations should remain fairly constant.

We had a net loss of $6,904 for the three months ended December 31, 2013 and $6,779 for the three months ended December 31, 2012.

We believe that overhead cost in current operations should remain fairly constant.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of December 31, 2013, we had cash or cash equivalents of $510 and a working capital deficit of $6,394.  As of September 30, 2012, we had cash or cash equivalents of $982 and a positive working capital of $10.

Net cash used in operating activities was $972 for the three month period ended December 31, 2013, compared to cash used in operating activities of $10 for the three month period ended December 31, 2012. We anticipate that overhead costs in current operations will remain fairly constant.

Cash flows used or provided by investing activities was $0 for the period ended December 31, 2013, compared to cash used for investing activities of $0 for the period ended December 31, 2012.

Cash flows provided by financing activities was $500 for the three month period ended December 31, 2013, compared to cash provided by financing activities of $765 for the three month period ended December 31, 2012. During the three month period ended December 31, 2013, an officer and two shareholders contributed $500 to the Company for working capital.

We believe that we have sufficient capital in the short term for our current level of operations. This is because we believe that we can attract sufficient product sales and services within our present organizational structure and resources to become profitable in our operations. We can control the substantial part of our expenses by foregoing the hiring of extra personnel and plan to use this to adjust our expenses. If we are unsuccessful in adequately adjusting our expenses, which we do not foresee at this time, we may need additional financing of some type, which we do not now pos­sess, to continue our operations.

 
14

 
Additional resources would be needed to expand into additional locations, which we have no plans to do at this time. We do not anticipate needing to raise additional capital resources in the next twelve months.

Our principal source of liquidity will be our operations, through loans by our sole officer and director or through capital contributions by our sole officer and director and through shareholders, of which there can be no assurance. There are currently no arrangements with our sole officer and director to fund our operations, if needed. We expect variation in revenues to account for the difference between a profit and a loss. Also business activity is closely tied to the economy of Denver and the U.S. economy. In any case, we try to operate with minimal overhead. Our primary activity will be to seek to develop clients and, consequently, our sales. If we succeed in obtaining a base and generating sufficient sales, we will become profitable. We cannot guarantee that this will ever occur. Our plan is to build our company in any manner that will be successful.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements with any party.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

We do not expect the adoption of any recently issued accounting pronouncements to have a significant impact on our net results of operations, financial position, or cash flows.

Seasonality

We do not expect our sales to be impacted by seasonal demands for our products and services.
