ITEM 1. BUSINESS
 
Who We Are

As of December 31, 2013, Titan Iron Ore. Corp. was a mineral exploration company. Due to our inability to raise capital to further develop mining claims and pursue mineral exploration, we decided to exit the mining business and look for other opportunities. On February 3, 2014, we completed a merger with iHookup Social, Inc., a Delaware corporation (“iHookup”) pursuant to an Agreement and Plan of Merger and Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”) dated January 31, 2014. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, we incorporated a new subsidiary called iHookup Operations Corp, a Delaware corporation, which merged with and into iHookup, causing the subsidiary’s separate existence to cease and iHookup to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. iHookup’s stockholders exchanged all of their twelve million (12,000,000) shares of outstanding common stock for fifty million (50,000,000) shares of the Company’s newly designated Series A Preferred Stock. Each share of common stock entitles its holder to one vote on each matter submitted to the stockholders.  The holders of preferred stock are entitled to cast votes equal to nine (9) times the total number of shares of common stock which are issued and outstanding, voting together with the holders of common stock as a single class. Such Series A Preferred Stock shall also be convertible into the number of shares of common stock which equals nine (9) times the total number of shares of common stock which are issued and outstanding at the time of conversion until the closing of a Qualified Financing (i.e. the sale and issuance of our equity securities that results in gross proceeds in excess of $2,500,000). As a result of the transaction, the former iHookup stockholders received a controlling interest in the Company.

iHookup’s business is development and dissemination of a "proximity based" mobile social media application that facilitates connections between people, utilizing the intelligence of GPS and localized recommendations. Going forward, we expect to focus on this aspect of the business, which is described more fully in this report after discussion of our prior mining business.
 
Corporate Overview
 
We were incorporated in the State of Nevada on June 5, 2007. Our plan after our inception on June 5, 2007 was to produce user-friendly software that creates interactive digital yearbook software for schools and allows them to create and burn their own interactive digital yearbooks on CD/DVD. We produced nominal revenues of $4,855 in our early stages as a result of sales efforts undertaken.
 
Effective June 15, 2011, we completed a merger with our subsidiary, Titan Iron Ore Corp., a Nevada corporation, which was incorporated solely to effect a change in our name from “Digital Yearbook Inc.” to “Titan Iron Ore Corp.”
 
Also effective June 15, 2011, we effected a 37 to one forward stock split of our issued and outstanding common and preferred stock.  As a result, our authorized capital increased from 100,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.0001 to 3,700,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.0001 of which 5,151,000 shares of common stock outstanding increased to 190,587,000 shares of common stock. Subsequently, on June 20, 2011, we issued 2,100,000 common shares pursuant to a private placement unit offering, increasing the number of shares of common stock outstanding to 192,687,000.

Effective June 30, 2011 and in connection with the entry into an agreement (the “Acquisition Agreement”) with J2 Mining Ventures Ltd. (“J2 Mining”) dated June 13, 2011 and attached as Exhibit 10.1 to our Current Report on Form 8-K filed June 16, 2011, we completed the acquisition of a 100% right, title and interest in and to a properties option agreement (the “Option Agreement”) from J2 Mining with respect to iron ore mineral properties located in Albany County, Wyoming, by way of entering an assignment of mineral property option agreement with J2 Mining and Wyomex LLC (the “Assignment Agreement”), whereby our company was assigned 100% of the right, title and interest in and to the Option Agreement from J2 Mining.
In connection with the closing of the Acquisition Agreement, Ohad David, Ruth Navon and Service Merchant Corp. (the “Vendors”), entered into an affiliate stock purchase agreement, whereby, among other things, the Vendors surrendered 142,950,000 common shares for cancellation.
 
As described above, on February 3, 2014 we completed a merger with iHookup pursuant to the Merger Agreement dated January 31, 2014. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, we incorporated a new subsidiary called iHookup Operations Corp, a Delaware corporation, which merged with and into iHookup, causing the subsidiary’s separate existence to cease and iHookup to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. iHookup’s stockholders exchanged all of their twelve million (12,000,000) shares of outstanding common stock for fifty million (50,000,000) shares of the Company’s newly designated Series A Preferred Stock. Each share of common stock entitles its holder to one vote on each matter submitted to the stockholders.  The holders of the Series A Preferred Stock are entitled to cast votes equal to nine (9) times the total number of shares of common stock which are issued and outstanding, voting together with the holders of common stock as a single class. Such Series A Preferred Stock shall also be convertible into the number of shares of common stock which equals nine (9) times the total number of shares of common stock which are issued and outstanding at the time of conversion until the closing of a Qualified Financing (i.e. the sale and issuance of our equity securities that results in gross proceeds in excess of $2,500,000). As a result of the transaction, the former iHookup stockholders received a controlling interest in the Company.

On October 18, 2012 we entered into agreements to secure up to $10 million in equity line financing. Separately on the same date, we also received $200,000 in funding from convertible debentures. During the year ended December 31, 2013, we received $709,437 in convertible note financing and repaid $194,159 of convertible note debt. During the quarter ended March 31, 2014, we received $526,966 in convertible note financing and repaid $216,966 of convertible note debt.

 
 
 
 

 

 
ITEM 1. BUSINESS - continued
 
The Option Agreement assigned to us from J2 Mining on September 30, 2011 was entered into on May 26, 2011 between J2 Mining and Wyomex LLC, pursuant to which Wyomex LLC, as optionor, granted to J2 Mining, as optionee, an exclusive right and option to acquire 100% undivided legal and beneficial interests in and to certain unpatented lode mining claims, fee lands, leased lands, and other interests in real property situated in Albany County, Wyoming (the “Wyoming Iron Complex”). Pursuant to the Assignment Agreement, J2 Mining agreed to assign all its rights and interests in the property and the Option Agreement, and transfer all of its obligations under the Option Agreement, to our company, and our company accepted and agreed to be bound by the terms of the Option Agreement.

 The Wyoming Iron Complex consists of: (i) property located at Southwest Quarter of Section 22, Township 19 North, Range 71 West, 6th Principal Meridian, Albany County, Wyoming; and (ii) certain unpatented lode mining claims situated in an unorganized mining district, Albany County, Wyoming, in Sections 14 and 24, Township 19 North, Range 72 West, 6th Principal Meridian, the names of which and the place of record of the location notices thereof in the official records of the county recorder and the authorized office of the Bureau of Land Management.
 

The term of the option commenced on May 26, 2011 and was extended for a total of six successive one-month periods, up through and including December 26, 2011, by providing notice to Wyomex LLC and payment of $5,000 for each of the first three additional months and $15,000 for the last three additional months (for a total payment of $60,000). Our company elected to exercise the option on December 21, 2011 by giving Wyomex LLC written notice of such election.
 

On March 30, 2012, we entered into and closed the Asset Purchase Agreement with Wyomex LLC whereby we purchased the Wyoming Iron Complex mineral project located in Albany County, Wyoming. Pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company granted to or executed in favor of Wyomex, and recorded (where applicable) the following documents and/or instruments:

•  
A Promissory Note in the amount of USD$6,855,000 (the “Note”);
 
•  
A Purchase Money Mortgage securing the Note (the “Mortgage”);
 
•  
A Bill of Sale relating to any real property contained on or within the Wyoming Iron Complex; and
 
•  
Assignment and Assumption Agreement for the leasehold interests relating to the Wyoming Iron Complex.
 
The Asset Purchase Agreement called for the Company to make monthly payments of $1000 to Chugwater Iron Company (“Chugwater”), the lessor under the leasehold interests for Wyoming Iron Complex, and to make payments and filings necessary to maintain the unpatented mining claims which are a part of the Wyoming Iron Complex. The Note called for the Company to make semi-annual advance royalty payments to Wyomex in anticipation of actual production (the “Advance Royalty Payments”). On January 27, 2014, the Company entered into a certain Mutual Release and Settlement Agreement with Wyomex to release the Wyoming Iron Complex properties back to Wyomex by terminating the Asset Purchase Agreement, Note and Mortgage. Please see below for more information.

 Mineral Exploration Business
 
With the entry into the Asset Purchase Agreement with respect to the Wyoming Iron Complex, we abandoned our efforts as an interactive software developer producing interactive digital yearbook software, and began focusing our efforts in the mineral exploration. Our business plan was to proceed with the exploration of the Wyoming Iron Complex consisting of mineral leases on 320 acres and 23 unpatented mining claims aggregating approximately 463 acres located in the county of Albany, Wyoming, USA.
 
Proposed Initial Work Program
 
We completed the initial two phases, which lasted six to seven months and entailed expenditures of approximately $258,000.
 
The initial phase lasted three months and included:
 
Compilation of all existing geological data into one comprehensive data base for each of  the Strong Creek and Iron Mountain Deposits; and
 
Development of an additional work program for the properties.
 
The second phase took a further three to four months. The specific work undertaken included confirmation drilling of existing drill targets to validate historic data (2000 feet).
 
The third phase would have involved expansion and infill drilling to expand the resource on the Strong Creek deposit to upgrade and enhance the quality of the resource data base, bulk testing of Iron Mountain Ores to confirm the validity of the Krupp Renn or other pyrometallurgical process as applied to Strong Creek and Iron Mountain ores, bench scale tests on the Strong Creek ores to validate the Hazen /USBM separation  results, and the initiation of a prefeasibility study based on historic and current data. This work program, subject to the receipt of adequate funding, was expected to take at least one year and entail an aggregate expenditure of up to $8 million.
 
Once we completed each phase of exploration, we would make a decision as to whether or not and how we proceed with each successive phase based upon the analysis of the results of that program.


 
 
 
 

 

 
ITEM 1. BUSINESS - continued
 
Progress
 
On October 13, 2011, we announced a targeted first phase drilling program of 1700 feet at the Strong Creek Property in the Wyoming Iron Complex.  A total of three HQ (2.5 inch diameter) diamond drill holes were completed to duplicate and verify drilling results obtained by Union Pacific Resources [c.  1955], the State of Wyoming [1995], and Radar Acquisitions Limited (2005).  One hole was extended to a depth of 700 feet to explore the vertical potential of the mineralized zone.  All work during this phase was done on the Strong Creek Project, the larger of Titan’s two projects within the Wyoming Iron Complex.  All samples were collected by drill crews with onsite supervision and placed in standard core boxes then transported to the facilities of Wyoming Analytical Laboratories Inc. in Laramie Wyoming.   There, the core samples were cut in half lengthwise, then logged as to rock type, mineralization and structure.  Samples were then taken consisting of one half of the cut core over a five foot interval, bagged and transported to the staff of the laboratory.  There, samples were catalogued in the laboratory’s management system and then taken to their preparation lab where they were crushed, screened and split to obtain a representative sample for analysis.  These representative samples were then sent to Wyoming Analytical Laboratories’ satellite lab in Golden Colorado where they were analyzed using X-Ray Fluorescence [XRF] methodology for Iron, Titanium, and Vanadium. The results of the Phase 1 drilling program are summarized as follows:

All three holes were collared in iron-titanium-vanadium mineralization and were terminated in iron mineralization higher than hole averages, suggesting that mineralization extends to greater depth.  Holes 1 and 2 were in higher grade material from the surface to the bottom of the hole.  Hole 3 encountered weaker iron grades near the surface but strengthened for the last 3/4 of the hole.   All values expressed here are weighted average grades over the core length specified.
 
In the case of the Strong Creek Property the prospect is without known reserves and our program of work has been and remains exploratory in nature.  There are no existing facilities or historic mining or mineral processing facilities on this site.
 
Quality assurance and control (QA/QC) measures consisted of the analysis of duplicate samples which were taken at 50 foot intervals and tested in the same manner and a random series of samples from rejects were sent to SGS Lakefield Laboratories in Lakefield Ontario, Canada which acted as an umpire laboratory.  SGS also performed Davis tube tests on selected random samples as a preliminary test for magnetic iron recovery.


 
 
 
 

 

ITEM 1. BUSINESS - continued
 
All sample rejects were retained for a period of 90 days in the event any retesting was considered necessary.  All remaining core was retained for future reference and analysis and sent to a secure and locked storage facility.
 
All work conducted during this program is under the direct control of the independent consulting geologist who managed the activities of the drilling contractor, civil contractor, and laboratory personnel.  Water for drilling was provided by the rancher who holds the surface and water rights.  All other supplies, fuel and power were provided by the drilling contractor.
 
All permits were obtained through the Land Division of the Wyoming Department of Environmental Quality, (WDEQ), the lead agency in Wyoming for permitting and reclamation matters. All holes were abandoned and reclaimed in accordance with the policies and procedures of WDEQ and included capping of the holes, re-contouring the surface and reseeding with an approved seed mix vegetation.  In November 2012, the drill sites were re-contoured and reseeded to the satisfaction of the surface rights owner. On November 30, 2012, as required by Wyoming statutes, the Company filed Notices of Abandonment for the three drillholes with the Wyoming State Engineer’s Office.
 
Titan also has the Iron Mountain property under lease at the Wyoming Iron Complex.   This is a historic mining operation, located approximately 6 miles to the east of Strong Creek, which has a small, existing open pit and iron ore stockpile, estimated by visual inspection at 50,000 tons, on the property. This stockpile has not been professionally surveyed as we do not currently have access to the site, as described below. Four representative samples from this stockpile were taken by Mountain Cement Company in 2009 and tested in their Laramie laboratory using X- Ray Fluorescence methods which yielded the following results:

This range of values is consistent with the grades found in historic drill holes which were completed in the 1950’s and 1960’s.
 
The Iron Mountain Project is situated on private fee property, and the lease held by Titan includes all surface, mineral, and water rights on the 160 acre parcel.  When this property was operating it was served by a dedicated power line connecting to the grid which can be reconnected should the project be reactivated. There are no other existing facilities on this site, but there are internal pit roads. Some 100 drill holes were drilled on this property in the 1950’s and 1960’s defining an iron-titanium mining resource which underpinned internal feasibility work undertaken by previous operators. Titan does not currently have access to Iron Mountain (please see the discussion under the heading “Mineral Properties – Description of Property, Location, Means and Access” for additional details)
 
Physical access to the site is obtained over county and state public roads, and private roads. The site lies 40.2 miles by road northeast of the city of Laramie, Wyoming.  Access from Laramie is as follows:
 
staring in Laramie go north on US 287/State Road (SR) 30 (paved) for 18.1 miles to the Junction with SR 34,
 
turn Northeast on SR 34 (paved) and proceed for 10.8 miles to the junction with County Road 12 (Sybille Rd),
 
proceed 10.8 miles along County road 12 (asphalt) to the intersection with Wayside Rd, veer left and continue on County Rd 12 (dirt) for another 1.3 miles, and
 
turn East (Left) on a private dirt road and continue for 4.3 miles until arriving at the Iron Mountain Project.
 
Work Program
 
As of December 31, 2013, our work at Iron Mountain remained exploratory in nature. Since our business model has changed, we have not, and will not, perform any feasibility level work to ascertain whether Iron Mountain ores are economically viable in terms of processing and shipping to potential customers . At this time we maintain an environmental bond with the WDEQ covering historic reclamation liabilities at Iron Mountain and an operating permit for Limited Mining Operations under a 10 acre exemption pursuant to W.S. Section 35-11-401 (c)(vi).
 
 Markets
 
The market for iron ore has seen a substantial improvement over the last 6 years, as demand and market prices have increased.

Iron Mountain ores are rich in titanium, and alone are not suitable for the production of typical iron concentrates (through conventional mining concentrating and processing methods) which are normally used by blast furnaces for manufacturing steel. However, more recently, steelmaking companies have been importing iron ores with higher titanium content as a blend in their blast furnaces.  As the ore melts, the titanium fills in cracks in the carbon bricks that line the hearth in the blast furnace which develop over time.  This can extend the life of the hearth and increase the useful life of a furnace before a major and costly relining of the blast furnace is necessary.  Currently much of this type of material used by US and Canadian Midwestern blast furnaces, in the Great Lakes region, is imported as ilmenite (FeTiO3) from South Africa, Canada or the Ukraine and has a TiO2 content of 30% to 32% at a landed cost (CIF) at the furnace of $300 per tonne. Potential customers for Iron Mountain ore are steel blast furnaces, for example in Gary, Indiana (1030 rail miles from Laramie) or Hamilton, Ontario, Canada (1470 rail miles from Laramie). Pricing for the Iron Mountain ores will be subject to direct negotiations with customers.  There are no “typical market specifications” or “typical furnace terms” for these sorts of Fe-Ti ores within the steel blast furnace industry, although we understand generally that are limits on certain types of elements in the ore which could trigger a penalty, such as sulphur, phosphorus, and aluminum, and size and density characteristics.  Preliminary discussions with potential customers through our marketing agents, based on historical sampling analyses set forth above, indicate that the Iron Mountain ores at 15% TiOcould be a competitive alternative to imported ilmenites at 30% TiOlevels, and that the Fe and Ti grades at Iron Mountain are acceptable to these customers. We have not yet provided ore samples to potential blast furnace customers for analysis and testing.
 
Titanium dioxide (TiO2) is primarily used in the manufacture of pigments for paint and coloring.  Ilmenites used in the manufacture of pigments have a TiO2 content of 50% to 52%.  This indicates that the Ti material being sold to the steel industry is subgrade material that is not suitable for the primary titanium market without further processing and concentrating.
 
Iron Mountain Ores would be produced on a Run of Mine (ROM) basis and shipped as “Lump Ore” or “Direct Ship Ore”.  ROM ores generally signifies mined materials, for which processing usually includes only mining (drilling and blasting), crushing and screening to size.  Based on preliminary discussions, with our marketing agents and potential customers, Iron Mountain ores would be crushed and screened to between 1.5 to 3 inches to meet general steel industry customer specifications.
 

 
 
 
 

 


ITEM 1. BUSINESS - continued
 
Fines or undersize material (less than 1.5 inches) will be marketed to the regional cement industry for use in the production of cement where fine, iron-containing material is preferred.  The current stockpile at Iron Mountain fits this purpose and Iron Mountain material has been used historically to meet the needs of area cement producers. Pricing and quantity of potential off-take is dependent on the quality and process requirements of each potential cement plant customer. Prices paid by local cement companies for iron ore are in the range of $25-30 per ton FOB minesite.
 
Estimated Production Costs to a Marketable Product.
 
Material at Iron Mountain is not directly marketable without some basic mining and processing operations. We have not performed a feasibility study to determine the economic viability of these operations.  The operating costs stated herein for Fe/Ti ores going to Midwestern blast furnaces, and for Fe-containing stockpile materials to local cement plants, are estimates only, and are based on information from public records, and discussions with potential contractors. These estimated costs are as follows: 
 
For mining and shipping of ROM Fe-Ti ores to Midwestern blast furnaces:

Contract Mining (Drill, Blast, Load, Haul, Crush & Screen)
$15.00/tonne
 
Truck transportation to Union Pacific Rail
   
Siding in Laramie (40 miles @ 0.22/tonne mile)
$8.80/tonne
 
Rail Transportation to US Midwest Market
$28.00/tonne
 
Site supervision and Management
$1.50/tonne
 
 
Total Delivered Cost
$53.30/tonne
 
 
For loading and shipping of stockpile materials to local cement producers:
 
Loading Trucks
$0.50/tonne
 
Site supervision and Management
$1.50/tonne
 
Shipping via truck to Laramie (Mountain Cement)
$8.80/ton
 
 
Total Delivered Cost
$10.80/ton
 
 
 
 

 
Mutual Release and Settlement Agreement
 
Due to the lack of progress in raising the needed capital to pursue mineral exploration in earnest, the Company has determined that it cannot fulfill the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement and Note signed with Wyomex. On January 27, 2014, the Company entered into a certain Mutual Release and Settlement Agreement with Wyomex to release the Wyoming Iron Complex properties back to Wyomex by terminating the Asset Purchase Agreement, Note and Mortgage:

Termination of the Asset Purchase Agreement (the “APA”):
 
a.  
The APA was terminated and all obligations arising out of or related to the APA were terminated.
 
b.  
In connection with such termination, The Company and Wyomex released and indemnified each other from and against any and all damages and actions of any kind whatsoever that any of them may have which (i) are based upon the APA, and (ii) otherwise have as a basis actions or inactions arising out of or occurring prior to the date if the agreement. Wyomex specifically released, indemnified and defended the Company from any and all obligations to make Advance Royalty Payments under the APA and to make payments to Chugwater.

Termination of Promissory Note and Mortgage.
 
a.  
The Note and Mortgage were terminated, and all obligations arising out of or related to the Note and Mortgage were terminated.
 
b.  
In connection with such termination, The Company and Wyomex released and indemnified each other from and against any and all damages and  actions of any kind whatsoever that any of them may have which (i) are based upon the Note and Mortgage, and (ii) otherwise have as a basis actions or inactions arising out of or occurring prior to the date if the agreement. Wyomex specifically released, indemnified and defended The Company from any and all obligations to make Advance Royalty Payments under the APA and to make payments to Chugwater
 
c.  
Within three business days following the execution of the agreement, the parties agreed to the following actions:
 
1.  
The Company agreed to execute, deliver and record a Quitclaim Deed, conveying the Property back to Wyomex.
 
2.  
The Company agreed to execute and deliver a Bill of Sale, conveying any personalty related to the Property back to Wyomex.
 
3.  
The Company and Wyomex agreed to execute and deliver a debt settlement agreement, whereby the Company issued shares to Wyomex for the conversion of debt owed by the Company to Wyomex in the amount of USD$9,000, representing 2014 unpatented federal mining claim maintenance expenses, and unpaid lease payments due to Chugwater.
 
4.  
Wyomex agreed to cancel and release the Note and Mortgage, and to expressly write “Canceled and Satisfied in Full” on the face of the original note and deliver it back to the Company.

The Company was unable to execute the above documents within the agreed upon time frame. However, as of the date hereof, we are now completing the process of releasing the Wyoming Iron Complex properties back to Wyomex.

Option Agreement with Globex Mining
 
On July 19, 2011, we entered into an option agreement with Globex Mining Enterprises Inc. ("Globex") effective July 12, 2011 (the "Globex Agreement"), pursuant to which Globex granted us the right (the "Option") for a period of 90 days from July 12, 2011 to acquire an undivided 100% interest in and to 202 mining claims (the "Property") located in the Labrador trough area in the Province of Quebec, Canada.
 
In September 2011, we initiated a geological reconnaissance survey of a magnetic geophysical anomaly located on the Labrador Trough iron property.  This survey determined that the anomaly was not of sufficient mineral type, grade or size to merit further exploration costs.  Accordingly, we have determined to drop the option on the Labrador Trough iron property and on October 12, 2011 notified the owner of the property that we will not be exercising its option to acquire the property.
 
Letter of Intent for Sunrise Mine
 
On April 15, 2013, we entered into a binding letter of intent with New Sunrise LLC, a limited liability company, whereby, following entry into a formal agreement and the closing thereof, we propose to acquire certain patented lode mining claims and other interests in real property and facilities located in Platte County, Wyoming for the purchase price of $12,000,000. An initial deposit of $25,000 was made on April 25, 2013. We had 180 days to conduct due diligence investigations of the property, following which agreements would be prepared provided due diligence and other conditions were met. We had the right to terminate the LOl any time during our due diligence investigations. Closing is dependent on satisfactory due diligence results, securing of sufficient financing to pay the purchase price, and other conditions. The 180 day period expired on October 14, 2013 and the parties agreed to extend the due diligence period until January 15, 2014 on a non-exclusive basis. As of January 15, 2014 the option expired and there are no plans for further exploration at Sunrise Mine

Competition
 
As of December 31, 2013, we were a mineral resource exploration company. Prior to our merger with iHookup, we competed with other mineral resource exploration companies for financing and for the acquisition of new mineral properties. Many of the mineral resource exploration companies with whom we compete have greater financial and technical resources than those available to us. Accordingly, these competitors may be able to spend greater amounts on acquisitions of mineral properties of merit, on exploration of their mineral properties and on development of their mineral properties. In addition, they may be able to afford more geological expertise in the targeting and exploration of mineral properties. This competition could have resulted in competitors having mineral properties of greater quality and interest to prospective investors who may finance additional exploration and development. This competition could have adversely impacted our ability to achieve the financing necessary for us to conduct further exploration of our mineral properties.


 
 
 
 

 

ITEM 1. BUSINESS - continued
 
We also competed with other mineral resource exploration companies for financing from a limited number of investors that are prepared to make investments in mineral resource exploration companies. The presence of competing mineral resource exploration companies may have impacted our ability to raise additional capital in order to fund our exploration programs if investors are of the view that investments in our competitors are more attractive based on the merit of the mineral properties under investigation and the price of the investment offered to investors. We also competed with other mineral resource exploration companies for available resources, including, but not limited to, professional geologists, camp staff, helicopter or float planes, mineral exploration supplies and drill rigs.
 
Compliance with Environmental Laws
 
Our business plan called for exploration activities and future mining operations. These activities are subject to extensive laws and regulations governing the protection of the environment, waste disposal, worker safety, mine construction, and protection of endangered and protected species. We expected to make in the future, significant    expenditures to comply with such laws and regulations. Future changes in applicable laws, regulations and permits or changes in their enforcement or regulatory interpretation could have had an adverse impact on our financial    condition or results of operations. In the event that we made a mineral discovery and decided to proceed to production, the costs and delays associated with compliance with these laws and regulations could have stopped us from proceeding with a project or the operation or further improvement of a mine or increase the costs of improvement or production.
 
Government Regulation
 
Mining operations and exploration activities are subject to various federal, state, provincial and local laws and regulations in the United States, which govern prospecting, development, mining, production, exports, taxes, labor standards, occupational health, waste disposal, protection of the environment, mine safety, hazardous substances and other matters. In the United States, the Federal government owns public lands that are administered by the Bureau of Land Management or the United States Forest Service. Ownership of the subsurface mineral estate can be acquired by staking a twenty (20) acre mining claim granted under the General Mining Law of 1872, as amended (the "General Mining Law").  Unless it has been conveyed, the Federal government still owns the surface estate even though the subsurface can be controlled with a right to extract through claim staking.
 
Our Current Business: e-Dating Mobile Application
 
As a result of our inability to raise capital to further develop the mining claims and pursue mineral exploration, the Company decided to exit the mining business and look for other opportunities. On February 3, 2014, the Company completed a merger with iHookup pursuant to the Merger Agreement dated January 31, 2014. Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, the Company incorporated a new subsidiary called iHookup Operations Corp, a Delaware corporation, which merged with and into iHookup causing the subsidiary’s separate existence to cease and iHookup to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. iHookup’s stockholders exchanged all of their twelve million (12,000,000) shares of outstanding common stock for fifty million (50,000,000) shares of the Company’s newly designated Series A Preferred Stock. Each share of common stock entitles its holder to one vote on each matter submitted to the stockholders.  The holders of preferred stock are entitled to cast votes equal to nine (9) times the total number of shares of common stock which are issued and outstanding, voting together with the holders of common stock as a single class. Such Series A Preferred Stock shall also be convertible into the number of shares of common stock which equals nine (9) times the total number of shares of common stock which are issued and outstanding at the time of conversion until the closing of a Qualified Financing (i.e. the sale and issuance of our equity securities that results in gross proceeds in excess of $2,500,000). As a result of the transaction, the former iHookup stockholders received a controlling interest in the Company.
iHookup’s business is the development and dissemination of a "proximity based" mobile social media application named “iHookup” that facilitates connections between people, utilizing the intelligence of GPS and localized recommendations. Going forward, the Company expects to focus on this aspect of the business.

Introduction
 
iHookup is seeking to redefine the way people meet, date, discover and socially convey interest in a potential partner. The laws of meeting and dating have shifted, with the traditional manner of dating and wooing that prospective mate now taking a backseat to meeting online or through the use of mobile technology. Making connections through online or mobile devices has become a dominant part of today’s mobile-social lifestyle, across various social circles, age groups, race, gender and demographics. In addition, the company plans to integrate localized recommendations, offering special merchant discounts that drive encounters or “Hookups” to a physical location, event or venue. In this way, the company plans to retain its user base and add extra revenue streams in several vertically attractive markets in brands and advertising.
 
 
 

 
 
Products/Services: iHookup application
 
iHookup is a proximity-based or location-based social platform and discovery application that facilitates communication between two or more users (“iHookup” or “application”). It utilizes the intelligence of GPS and localized recommendations for dating, friends, groups and organizations to expand existing social circles. It is available on the iOS platform and in iTunes stores world-wide, where we offer a free version and a paid version. The free version allows users to browse through the application’s features and user profiles. The paid version which costs $0.99 to download, provides a trial of all subscription based services (which allows users to send message and take advantage of any localized recommendations or offers) for a specified period of time, as determined by the company’s marketing strategy. The application also offers a “virtual currency” component, allowing users to purchase “in application” coin packs that activate virtual gifts and various service-based options (see subscription offers and pricing below – prices are subject to change and often do during this user acquisition phase the company is currently in):
 
Recurring Subscriptions
$8.99
1-Month
$14.99
3-Month
$24.99
6-Month
$44.99
Annual
$69.99
Coin Pack1
$4.99
Coin Pack2
$7.99
Coin Pack 3
$19.99

 
The company's users will be provided with "local" options of many kinds, enabling mobile distribution of locally relevant content and special offers. The company hopes to bring together a dynamic opportunity for brands, advertisers and merchants to interact in new and innovative ways with the iHookup Social Network, while building customer loyalty, engagement and revenues. The company is pursuing its growth in its current "dating vertical" market, as well as expanding its reach into the general audience category of "Social Networking."
 
Marketing
 
We market our application utilizing a variety online and offline marketing activities. Our offline marketing activities generally consist of traditional marketing and event-based branding in various local markets. . Our marketing plan also includes leveraging several key domain names registered by the company to bring local and event style marketing to college campuses and other areas. For example, our domain names include but are not limited to: www.hookupUCLA.com, www.hookupHARVARD.com, www.hookupASU.com and www.hookupHOLLYWOOD.com.
 
Our online marketing activities generally consist of the purchase of Mobile-banners and other display advertising and search engine marketing. We run various mobile ad campaigns targeting male, female and Apple / iOS users on Facebook and other regional, US and international sites. In addition, the company produces video ads that may be run on mobile “video” ad networks or be placed based on a variety of alliances with third parties who advertise and promote our services, from time to time. Such video advertising may be expanded and utilized in commercials, on Facebook, YouTube, and various other editorial and public relations efforts.
 
iHookup is available on iTunes, where our visibility in rank on the free, paid and social networking categories also drives traffic to both versions of the application.  The highest ranking achieved by our application in March 2014 on the Apple App Store is as follows:
 
·  
Top Grossing Social Networking FREE iPhone / iPod App USA: #54
·  
Top Grossing Social Networking PAID iPhone / iPod App USA: #70
·  
Top Grossing Social Networking FREE iPad App USA: #83
·  
Top Rank in Social Networking FREE App USA: #149
·  
Top Rank Social Networking Paid in March:  #20
·  
Top Rank Social Networking Paid Canada:  #13

Revenue

Our revenue is derived primarily from subscription fees for our paid versions and from users purchasing “coins” for added features. Additional revenue opportunities include merchants, brands and advertisers that we plan to vertically integrate into our location based offers and discounts as of or around May 2014.
 

 
 
 

 
 
Competition

The e-dating business is highly competitive and barriers to entry are minimal. We compete primarily with other e-dating mobile applications (e.g. Tinder), but also e-dating websites (e.g. Match.com and eHarmony), dating and matchmaking services, other social media platforms and applications, and other conventional media companies that provide personal services and traditional venues where singles meet (both online and offline). The company hopes to use the dating category as an entry point to a much broader “Social Networking” marketplace, where competitors will include websites and applications offering coupons by merchants and brands (e.g. Living Social, Groupon, What About We).

We believe that our ability to compete successfully will depend primarily upon the following factors:

•  
the size and diversity of our registered member and subscriber bases relative to those of our competitors;
 
•  
the functionality of our application and the attractiveness of their features and our services and offerings generally to consumers relative to those of our competitors;
 
•  
how quickly we can enhance our existing technology and services and/or develop new features and localized opportunities and venue based monetization opportunities in response to:
 
 new, emerging and rapidly changing technologies;
 
 the introduction of product and service offerings by our competitors;
 
 changes in consumer requirements and trends in the single community relative to our competitors; and
 
 our ability to engage in cost-effective marketing efforts, including by way of maintaining relationships with third parties with which we have entered into alliances, and the recognition and strength of our various brands relative to those of our competitors.
 
Employees and Key Consultants
 
Our company has five full time employees and one part time employee.
 
Intellectual Property

We intend, in due course, subject to legal advice, to apply for trademark, copyright and/or patent protection in the United States and other jurisdictions. We regard our intellectual property, including our software and trademark, as valuable assets and intend to vigorously defend them against infringement.  

While there can be no assurance that registered trademarks and copyrights will protect our proprietary information, we intend to file for protection and assert our intellectual property rights against any infringer. Although any assertion of our rights can result in a substantial cost to, and diversion of effort by, our Company, management believes that the protection of our intellectual property rights is an important part of our operating strategy.
 
Market Opportunity
 
As a whole mobile applications create a socially connected experience while allowing users to push forward with personal goals to achieve, stay active or on the move and ultimately accessible at all times. Mobile dating is one of the fastest growing market segments in mobile communications, continuing to attract new users. A common problem faced across all age and demographic profiles, is the lack of time in each day. Easy, accessible and user driven technologies are replacing traditional avenues of meeting people by providing yet another way to embrace our “Do it all” and “Have it all” mobile - social generation.
 
 
 
 

 
Market Size
 
First, the shift from desktop to mobile, whether smartphone or tablet, is happening across a variety of activities, including social networking and e-Dating. As the chart below shows, the time spent on mobile usage has steadily overtaken other online activities on desktops or laptops from 2010 to 2013.
 
According to the chart below, the average time a US adult spends on mobile (including smartphones and tablets) for social networking is roughly 60% of the time spent on desktops or laptops. Therefore we believe that users are more likely to use mobile for social networking.
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
In addition, the study below shows the steady increase of mobile e-Dating usage from 6% in 2011 to 39% in 2014.  We believe that dating itself is inherently social and local, being better served by mobile applications that provide accessibility wherever users go. Today’s e-dater need not be in front of his or her computer to view potential matches, or to receive or send messages. The user’s phone is always by his or her side.

 
iOS devices are versatile multi-purpose machines that have already significantly impacted the business models of music, games and other Media & Entertainment industry categories. And now, within the nexus of mobile-social-local, mobile dating applications appear to be another high growth sector.
 
Growth
 
In less than two decades, online dating soared and is "in the growth phase of its economic life cycle," says an IBISWorld report. Though 18- to 29-year-olds make up the biggest chunk of users, with 30- to 49-year-olds next in line, demand is expected to increase with users over 50 years of age too. More than one-third of Baby Boomers are unmarried, and as more and more migrate to the digital world, the industry is beginning to target this unattached and largely underserved market.
 
Nielsen reports that the number of Americans using applications or a mobile version of a dating website was 13.7 million in November 2012, more than double the previous year's 5.8 million.
 
 
 

 
According to the chart below, applications generated a total of $59.8 billion in revenues through in-app advertising, sales of physical goods and services, virtual goods, paid application downloads and digital downloads. As of 2017, this market is projected to grow to over $140 billion.
 
 
From the chart below, the proximity-based social networking market as of 2014 is valued at $361 million and is projected to grow to $1.979 billion by 2016.
 
 
 

 
 
ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

RISK FACTORS

The risks and uncertainties below may not be the only ones the Company faces. If any of these risks actually occur, or others not specified below, the business, financial condition, operating results and prospects of the Company could be materially and adversely affected. In that case, the trading price of our common stock could decline.

General Risks

We may fail to raise sufficient capital.

To the extent that we fail to obtain sufficient operating capital, we may be unable to deal with presently unforeseen contingencies in the future or be able to fund our operations.   In addition, we may have more difficulty or find it impossible, to raise third party financing from investors or financial institutions.

Our reserves may be insufficient.

We intend to establish a reserve fund, as determined in the Board’s discretion, for normal working capital contingencies.  There is no guarantee that our reserves will be adequate.  If the reserves are not available to the Company, it may be necessary to attempt to raise additional capital or financing.  In the event that such capital or financing is not available on favorable terms, we may be forced to raise additional capital on unfavorable terms.

Risks Related to Our Business and Industry

Our success depends upon the continued growth and acceptance of online advertising, particularly paid listings, as an effective alternative to traditional, offline advertising and the continued commercial use of the internet.
 
Many advertisers still have limited experience with online advertising and may continue to devote significant portions of their advertising budgets to traditional offline advertising media. Accordingly, we continue to compete with traditional advertising media, including television, radio and print, in addition to a multitude of websites with high levels of traffic and online advertising networks, for a share of available advertising expenditures and expect to face continued competition as more emerging media and traditional offline media companies enter the online advertising market. We believe that the continued growth and continued acceptance of online advertising generally will depend, to a large extent, on its perceived effectiveness and the acceptance of related advertising models (particularly in the case of models that incorporate user targeting and/or utilize mobile devices), the continued growth in commercial use of the internet (particularly abroad), the extent to which web browsers, software programs and/or other applications that limit or prevent advertising from being displayed become commonplace and the extent to which the industry is able to effectively manage click fraud. Any lack of growth in the market for online advertising, particularly for paid listings, or any decrease in the effectiveness and value of online advertising (whether due to the passage of laws requiring additional disclosure and/or opt-in policies for advertising that incorporates user targeting or other developments) would have an adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.
 
We depend, in part, upon arrangements with third parties to drive traffic to our various websites and distribute our products and services.
 
We engage in a variety of activities designed to attract traffic to our various websites and convert visitors into repeat users and customers. How successful we are in these efforts depends, in part, upon our continued ability to enter into arrangements with third parties to drive traffic to our various websites, as well as the continued introduction of new and enhanced products and services that resonate with users and customers generally.
 
In addition, we have entered into a number of arrangements with third parties to promote and deliver mobile advertising to various social networks or mobile channels. Pursuant to these arrangements, third parties generally promote our services on various mobile applications, their websites or through e-mail campaigns and we either pay on a cost per impression basis (i.e. cost per view) or a fixed fee when visitors to these websites click through to or download our application.. These arrangements are generally not exclusive, are short-term in nature and are generally terminable by either party given notice. If existing arrangements with third parties are terminated (or are not renewed upon their expiration) and we fail to replace this traffic and related revenues, or if we are unable to enter into new arrangements with existing and/or new third parties in response to industry trends, our business, financial condition and results of operations could be adversely affected.
 
Even if we succeed in driving traffic to our properties, we may not be able to convert this traffic or otherwise retain users unless we continue to provide quality products and services. We may not be able to adapt quickly and/or in cost-effective manner to frequent changes in user and customer preferences, which can be difficult to predict, or appropriately time the introduction of enhancements and/or new products or services to the market. Our inability to provide quality products and services would adversely affect user and customer experiences, which would result in decreases in users, customers and revenues, which would adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
 
As discussed below, our traffic building and conversion initiatives also involve the expenditure of considerable sums for marketing, as well as for the development and introduction of new products, services and enhancements, infrastructure and other related efforts.
 
 
 

 
Marketing efforts designed to drive traffic to our various websites may not be successful or cost-effective.
 
Traffic building and conversion initiatives involve considerable expenditures for online and offline advertising and marketing. We plan to make significant expenditures for online display advertising, event-based marketing and traditional offline advertising in connection with these initiatives, which may not be successful or cost-effective.  In the case of paid advertising generally, the policies of sellers and publishers of advertising may limit our ability to purchase certain types of advertising or advertise some of our products and services, which could affect our ability to compete effectively and, in turn, adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
 
In addition, search engines have increasingly expanded their offerings into other, non-search related categories, and have in certain instances displayed their own integrated or related product and service offerings in a more prominent manner than those of third parties within their search engine results. Continued expansion and competition from search engines could result in a substantial decrease in traffic to our various websites, as well as increased costs if we were to replace free traffic with paid traffic, which would adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
 
Lastly, as discussed above, we also have and will enter into various arrangements with third parties in an effort to increase traffic, which arrangements are generally more cost-effective than traditional marketing efforts. If we are unable to renew existing (and enter into new) arrangements of this nature, sales and marketing costs as a percentage of revenue would increase over the long-term.
 
Any failure to attract and acquire new, and retain existing, traffic, users and customers in a cost-effective manner could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.We rely in part on application marketplaces and Internet search engines to drive traffic to our products and services, and if we fail to appear high up in the search results or rankings, traffic to our platform could decline and our business and operating results could be adversely affected.
 
We rely on application marketplaces, such as Apple’s App Store, to drive downloads of our mobile applications. In the future, Apple or other operators of application marketplaces may make changes to their marketplaces which make access to our products and services more difficult. Our rankings in Apple’s App Store may also drop based on the following factors:
 
•  
the size and diversity of our registered member and subscriber bases relative to those of our competitors;
 
•  
the functionality of our application and the attractiveness of their features and our services and offerings generally to consumers relative to those of our competitors;
 
•  
how quickly we can enhance our existing technology and services and/or develop new features and localized opportunities and venue based monetization opportunities in response to:
 
 
   •
new, emerging and rapidly changing technologies;
 
   •
the introduction of product and service offerings by our competitors;
 
   •
changes in consumer requirements and trends in the single community relative to our competitors; and
 
   • our ability to engage in cost-effective marketing efforts, including by way of maintaining relationships with third parties with which we have entered into alliances, and the recognition and strength of our various brands relative to those of our competitors.
 
Our estimated income taxes could be materially different from income taxes that we ultimately pay.
 
We are subject to income taxes in both the United States and numerous jurisdictions abroad. Significant judgment and estimation is required in determining our provision for income taxes and related matters. In the ordinary course of our business, there are many transactions and calculations where the ultimate tax determinations are uncertain or otherwise subject to interpretation. Our determination of our income tax liability is always subject to review by applicable tax authorities and we are currently subject to audits in a number of jurisdictions. Although we believe our income tax estimates and related determinations are reasonable and appropriate, relevant taxing authorities may disagree. The ultimate outcome of any such audits and reviews could be materially different from estimates and determinations reflected in our historical income tax provisions and accruals. Any adverse outcome of any such audit or review could have an adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.
 
 
 

 
A variety of new laws, or new interpretations of existing laws, could subject us to claims or otherwise harm our business.
 
We are subject to a variety of laws in the U.S. and abroad that are costly to comply with, can result in negative publicity and diversion of management time and effort and can subject us to claims or other remedies.  Some of these laws, such as income, sales, use, value-added and other tax laws and consumer protection laws, are applicable to businesses generally and others are unique to the various types of businesses in which we are engaged.  Many of these laws were adopted prior to the advent of the internet and related technologies and, as a result, do not contemplate or address the unique issues of the internet and related technologies.  Laws that do reference the internet are being interpreted by the courts, but their applicability and scope remain uncertain. 
 
For example, through our various businesses we post and link to third party content, including third party advertisements, links and websites, as well as content submitted by users, such as comments, photographs and videos. We could be subject to liability for posting or linking to third party content, and while we generally require third parties to indemnify us for related claims, we may not be able to enforce our indemnification rights. Some laws, including the Communications Decency Act, or CDA, and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, or DMCA, limit our liability for posting or linking to third party content. For example, the DMCA generally protects online service providers from claims of copyright infringement based on use of third party content, so long as certain statutory requirements are satisfied. However, the scope and applicability of the DMCA are subject to judicial interpretation and, as such, remain uncertain, and the U.S. Congress may enact legislation limiting the protections afforded by the DMCA to online service providers. Moreover, similar protections may not exist in other jurisdictions in which our various businesses operate. As a result, claims could be threatened and filed under both U.S. and foreign laws based upon use of third party content asserting, among other things, defamation, invasion of privacy or right or publicity, copyright infringement or trademark infringement.
 
Any failure on our part to comply with applicable laws may subject us to additional liabilities, which could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.  In addition, if the laws to which we are currently subject are amended or interpreted adversely to our interests, or if new adverse laws are adopted, our products and services might need to be modified to comply with such laws, which would increase our costs and could result in decreased demand for our products and services to the extent that we pass on such costs to our customers.  Specifically, in the case of tax laws, positions that we have taken or will take are subject to interpretation by the relevant taxing authorities. While we believe that the positions we have taken to date comply with applicable law, there can be no assurances that the relevant taxing authorities will not take a contrary position, and if so, that such positions will not adversely affect us. Any events of this nature could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
 
We may fail to adequately protect our intellectual property rights or may be accused of infringing the intellectual property rights of third parties.
 
We regard our intellectual property rights, including trademarks, domain names, trade secrets, patents, copyrights and other similar intellectual property, as critical to our success.  For example, we rely heavily on the trademark “iHookup” to market our product and seek to build and maintain brand loyalty and recognition. . We intend, in due course, subject to legal advice, to apply for trademark, copyright and/or patent protection in the United States and other jurisdictions. We regard our intellectual property, including our software and trademark, as valuable assets and intend to vigorously defend them against infringement.  Effective trademark protection may not be available or may not be sought in every country in which products and services are made available and contractual disputes may affect the use of marks governed by private contract.  We have reserved and registered certain domain names, however not every variation of a domain name may be available or be registered, even if available.
 
While there can be no assurance that registered trademarks and copyrights will protect our proprietary information, we intend to assert our intellectual property rights against any infringer. Although any assertion of our rights can result in a substantial cost to, and diversion of effort by, our Company, management believes that the protection of our intellectual property rights is a key component of our operating strategy.
 
Our application also relies upon trade secrets and certain copyrightable and patentable proprietary technologies relating to its software and related features, products and services.
 
We will rely on a combination of laws and contractual restrictions with employees, customers, suppliers, affiliates and others to establish and protect our various intellectual property rights.  For example, we plan to apply to register and renew, or secure by contract where appropriate, trademarks and service marks as they are developed and used, and continue to reserve, register and renew domain names as we deem appropriate. 
 
We also plan to apply for copyrights and patents or for other similar statutory protections as we deem appropriate, based on then current facts and circumstances.  No assurances can be given that any copyright or patent application we file will result in a copyright or patent being issued, or that any future copyright or patent will afford adequate protection against competitors and similar technologies.  In addition, no assurances can be given that third parties will not create new products or methods that achieve similar results without infringing upon copyrights or patents we may own in the future.
 
Despite these measures, our intellectual property rights may still not be protected in a meaningful manner, challenges to contractual rights could arise or third parties could copy or otherwise obtain and use our intellectual property without authorization.  The occurrence of any of these events could result in the erosion of our brands and limitations on our ability to control marketing on or through the internet using our various domain names, as well as impede our ability to effectively compete against competitors with similar technologies, any of which could adversely affect our business, financial conditions and results of operations.
 
From time to time, we may be subject to legal proceedings and claims in the ordinary course of business, including claims of alleged infringement of trademarks, copyrights, patents and other intellectual property rights held by third parties.  In addition, litigation may be necessary in the future to enforce our intellectual property rights, protect our trade secrets or to determine the validity and scope of proprietary rights claimed by others.  Any litigation of this nature, regardless of outcome or merit, could result in substantial costs and diversion of management and technical resources, any of which could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.  Patent litigation tends to be particularly protracted and expensive.
 
 
 

 
If we fail to grow our user base, or if user engagement or ad engagement on the platform declines, the revenue, business and operating results may be harmed.

The size of the user base and the users’ level of engagement are critical to our success. The financial performance has been and will continue to be significantly determined by success in growing the number of users and increasing their overall level of engagement on the platform as well as the number of ad engagements. We generate a substantial majority of our revenue based upon the number of downloads, migration to subscription accounts and engagement by the users with the ads that we display. If people do not perceive the services to be useful, reliable and trustworthy, we may not be able to attract users or increase the frequency of their engagement with the platform and the ads that we display. There is no guarantee that we will be successful in attracting more users or not suffer erosion of the user base or engagement levels. A number of factors could potentially negatively affect user growth and engagement, including if:

·  
users engage with other products, services or activities as an alternative;

·  
influential users, such as celebrities, athletes, journalists and brands or certain age demographics conclude that an alternative product or service is more relevant;

·  
we are unable to convince potential new users of the value and usefulness of its products and services;

·  
there is a decrease in the perceived quality of the content generated by our platform;

·  
we fail to introduce new and improved products or services or if we introduce new or improved products or services that are not favorably received or that negatively affect user engagement;

·  
technical or other problems prevent us  from delivering our products or services in a rapid and reliable manner or otherwise affect the user experience;

·  
we are unable to present users with content that is interesting, useful and relevant to them;

·  
users believe that their experience is diminished as a result of the decisions we make with respect to the frequency, relevance and prominence of ads that we display;

·  
there are user concerns related to privacy and communication, safety, security or other factors;

·  
we become subject to hostile or inappropriate usage on our platform;

·  
there are adverse changes in our products or services that are mandated by, or that we  elect to make to address, legislation, regulatory authorities or litigation, including settlements or consent decrees;

·  
we fail to provide adequate customer service to users; or

·  
we do not maintain our brand image or its reputation is damaged.
 
If users do not continue to download and use our application and their engagement is not valuable to other users, we may experience a decline in the number of users accessing the products and services and user engagement, which could result in the loss of advertisers and revenue.

Our success depends on our ability to provide users with valuable content, which in turn depends on the profile descriptions and use of the app by others. We believe that one of our competitive advantages is the quality, quantity and real-time nature of the content on iHookup, and that access to unique or real-time content is one of the main reasons users visit us. We seek to foster a broad and engaged user community, and we encourage celebrities, athletes, and others to use our products and services to meet people and form relationships. If users do not continue to contribute profiles and we are unable to provide users with valuable and timely content or other people to engage with, our user base and user engagement may decline. Additionally, if we are not able to address user concerns regarding the safety and security of our products and services or if we are unable to successfully prevent abusive or other hostile behavior on the platform, the size of the user base and user engagement may decline.

 
 

 
If we are unable to compete effectively for users and advertiser spend, the business and operating results could be harmed.

Competition for users of its products and services is intense. Although we have developed a new platform for public self-expression and meeting people in real time, we face strong competition in this business. We compete against many companies to attract and engage users, including companies which have greater financial resources and substantially larger user bases, such as eHarmony, Match.com and others which offer a variety of Internet and mobile device-based products, services and content. As a result, competitors may acquire and engage users at the expense of the growth or engagement of our user base, which would negatively affect the business.

We believe that our ability to compete effectively for users depends upon many factors both within and beyond our control, including:

·  
the popularity, usefulness, ease of use, performance and reliability of our products and services compared to those of our competitors;

·  
the amount, quality and timeliness of content generated by our users;

·  
the timing and market acceptance of our products and services;

·  
the adoption of our products and services internationally;

·  
its ability, and the ability of our competitors, to develop new products and services and enhancements to existing products and services;

·  
the frequency and relative prominence of the ads displayed by us or our competitors;

·  
our ability to establish and maintain relationships with platform partners that integrate with our platform;

·  
changes mandated by, or that we elect to make to address, legislation, regulatory authorities or litigation, including settlements and consent decrees, some of which may have a disproportionate effect on us;

·  
government action regulating competition;

·  
our ability to attract, retain and motivate talented employees, particularly engineers, designers and product managers;

·  
acquisitions or consolidation within our industry, which may result in more formidable competitors; and

·  
our reputation and the brand strength relative to our competitors.

We also face significant competition for advertiser spend. We compete against online and mobile businesses, including those referenced above, and traditional media outlets, such as television, radio and print, for advertising budgets. In order to grow our revenue and improve our operating results, we must increase our share of spending on advertising relative to our competitors, many of which are larger companies that offer more traditional and widely accepted advertising products. In addition, some of our larger competitors have substantially broader product or service offerings and leverage their relationships based on other products or services to gain additional share of advertising budgets.

We believe that our ability to compete effectively for advertiser spend depends upon many factors both within and beyond our control, including:

·  
the size and composition of our user base relative to those of our competitors;

·  
our ad targeting capabilities, and those of our competitors;

·  
the timing and market acceptance of our advertising services, and those of our competitors;

·  
our marketing and selling efforts, and those of our competitors;

·  
the pricing for our products relative to the advertising products and services of our competitors;

·  
the return our advertisers receive from their advertising services, compared to those of our competitors; and

·  
our reputation and the strength of our brand relative to our competitors.
 
If we are not able to compete effectively for users and advertiser spend our business and operating results would be materially and adversely affected.

 
 

 
User growth and engagement depend upon effective interoperation with operating systems, networks, and devices, that we do not control.

Currently, our application is available only on Apple’s iOS. We are dependent on the interoperability of our products and services with popular devices, and mobile operating systems that we do not control. Any changes in such systems or devices that degrade the functionality of our products and services or give preferential treatment to competitive products or services could adversely affect usage of our products and services. Further, if the number of platforms for which we develop our product expands, it will result in an increase in our operating expenses. In order to deliver high quality products and services, it is important that our products and services work with a range of operating systems and devices that we do not control. In addition, because our users access our products and services through mobile devices, we are particularly dependent on the interoperability of our products and services with mobile devices and operating systems. We may not be successful in developing or maintaining relationships with key participants in the mobile industry or in developing products or services that operate effectively with these operating systems and devices. In the event that it is difficult for our users to access and use our products and services on their mobile devices, our user growth and engagement could be harmed, and our business and operating results could be adversely affected.

We have a limited operating history in a new and unproven market for our platform, which makes it difficult to evaluate our future prospects and may increase the risk that we will not be successful.

We have developed a mobile app for public self-expression and meeting people in real time, and the market for our products and services is relatively new and may not develop as expected, if at all. People who are not our users may not understand the value of our products and services and new users may initially find our products confusing.  Convincing potential new users of the value of our products and services is critical to increasing our user base and to the success of our business.

We have a limited operating history, and only began to generate revenue in 2013 which makes it difficult to effectively assess our future prospects or forecast future results. We encounter or may encounter many risks in this developing and rapidly evolving market. These risks and challenges include its ability to, among other things:

·  
increase its number of users and user engagement;

·  
successfully expand our business;

·  
develop a reliable, scalable, secure, high-performance technology infrastructure that can efficiently handle increased usage;

·  
convince advertisers of the benefits of our products compared to alternative forms of advertising;

·  
develop and deploy new features, products and services;

·  
successfully compete with other companies, some of which have substantially greater resources and market power than us, that are currently in, or may in the future enter, its industry, or duplicate the features of our products and services;

·  
attract, retain and motivate talented employees, particularly engineers, designers and product managers;

·  
process, store, protect and use personal data in compliance with governmental regulations, contractual obligations and other obligations related to privacy and security;

·  
continue to earn and preserve its users’ trust, including with respect to their private personal information; and

·  
defend ourselves against litigation, regulatory, intellectual property, privacy or other claims.
 
If we fail to educate potential users and potential advertisers about the value of our products and services, if the market for our platform does not develop as we expect or if we  fail to address the needs of this market, our business will be harmed. We may not be able to successfully address these risks and challenges or other unforeseen risks and challenges. Failure to adequately address these risks and challenges could harm our business and cause our operating results to suffer.

 
 

 
Our business depends on the continued and unimpeded access to our products and services on mobile devices by our users and advertisers. If we or our users experience disruptions in service or if mobile service providers are able to block, degrade or charge for access to our products and services, we could incur additional expenses and the loss of users and advertisers.

We depend on the ability of our users and advertisers to access mobile devices. Currently, this access is provided by companies that have significant market power in the broadband and telecommunications access marketplace, including incumbent telephone companies, cable companies, mobile communications companies, government-owned service providers, device manufacturers and operating system providers, any of whom could take actions that degrade, disrupt or increase the cost of user access to our products or services, which would, in turn, negatively impact our business.  We also rely on other companies to maintain reliable communications network systems that provide adequate speed, data capacity and security to us and our users. As the number of mobile device users continues to grow, frequency of use and amount of data transmitted, the communications infrastructure that we and our users rely on may be unable to support the demands placed upon it. The failure of the mobile communications infrastructure that we and/or our users rely on, even for a short period of time, could undermine our operations and harm our operating results.

Abusive activities by certain users could diminish the user experience on our platform, which could damage our reputation and deter our current and potential users from using our products and services.

There are a range of abusive activities that are prohibited by the our terms of service and are generally defined as unsolicited, repeated actions that negatively impact other users with the general goal of drawing user attention to a given person, account, site, product or idea. This includes posting large numbers of unsolicited mentions of a user, duplicate outlets, misleading links (e.g., to malware or click-jacking pages) or other false or misleading content, and aggressively following and un-following accounts, adding users to lists, sending invitations to inappropriately attract attention. Our terms of service also prohibit the creation of serial or bulk accounts, both manually or using automation, for disruptive or abusive purposes.  Although we continue to invest resources to reduce spam and other abusive behavior, we expect spammers and abusers will continue to seek ways to act inappropriately on our platform.  We will continuously combat spam and other abusive behaviors, including by suspending or terminating accounts we believe to be spammers and launching algorithmic changes focused on curbing abusive activities. Combatting spam and other abusive behaviors require the diversion of significant time and focus of our engineering team from improving our products and services. If spam or abusive behavior increase, this could hurt our reputation for delivering relevant content or reduce user growth and user engagement and result in continuing operational cost to us.

If we fail to effectively manage our growth, our business and operating results could be harmed.

If we experience rapid growth in our headcount and operations, it will place significant demands on our management, operational and financial infrastructure. We intend to continue to make substantial investments to expand our operations, research and development, sales and marketing and general and administrative organizations. We face significant competition for employees, particularly engineers, designers and product managers, from other Internet and high-growth companies, which include both publicly-traded and privately-held companies, and we may not be able to hire new employees quickly enough to meet our needs. To attract highly skilled personnel, we will need to continue to offer, highly competitive compensation packages. As we continue to grow, we are subject to the risks of over-hiring, over-compensating our employees and over-expanding our operating infrastructure, and to the challenges of integrating, developing and motivating a rapidly growing employee base.  If we fail to effectively manage our hiring needs and successfully integrate new hires, our efficiency and ability to meet our forecasts and our employee morale, productivity and retention could suffer, and our business and operating results could be adversely affected.

Our business and operating results may be harmed by a disruption in our service, or by our failure to timely and effectively scale and adapt our existing technology and infrastructure.

One of the reasons people use our platform is for real-time information and personal contact. We may, in the future, experience service disruptions, outages and other performance problems due to a variety of factors, including infrastructure changes, human or software errors, hardware failure, capacity constraints due to an overwhelming number of people accessing our products and services simultaneously, computer viruses and denial of service or fraud or security attacks. Although we are investing significantly to improve the capacity, capability and reliability of our infrastructure, we are not currently serving traffic equally through the data centers that support our platform. Accordingly, in the event of a significant issue at the data center supporting most of our network traffic, some of our products and services may become inaccessible to the public or the public may experience difficulties accessing our products and services.  Any disruption or failure in our infrastructure could hinder our ability to handle existing or increased traffic on our platform, which could significantly harm our business.

As the number of our users increases and our users generate more content, including photos and videos hosted by us, we may be required to expand and adapt our technology and infrastructure to continue to reliably store, serve and analyze this content. It may become increasingly difficult to maintain and improve the performance of our products and services, especially during peak usage times, as our products and services become more complex and our user traffic increases. This would negatively impact our ability to attract users and advertisers and increase engagement of our users. We expect to continue to make significant investments to maintain and improve the capacity, capability and reliability of our infrastructure. To the extent that we do not effectively address capacity constraints, upgrade our systems as needed and continually develop our technology and infrastructure to accommodate actual and anticipated changes in technology, our business and operating results may be harmed.

If we are unable to maintain and promote our brand, our business and operating results may be harmed.

We believe that maintaining and promoting our brand is critical to expanding our base of users and advertisers. Maintaining and promoting our brand will depend largely on our ability to continue to provide useful, reliable and innovative products and services, which we may not do successfully. We may introduce new features, products, services or terms of service that users, platform partners or advertisers do not like, which may negatively affect our brand. Additionally, the actions of platform partners may affect our brand if users do not have a positive experience using third-party applications. Our brand may also be negatively affected by the actions of users that are hostile or inappropriate to other people, by users impersonating other people, by users identified as spam, by users introducing excessive amounts of spam on its platform or by third parties obtaining control over users’ accounts. Maintaining and enhancing our brand may require iHookup to make substantial investments and these investments may not achieve the desired goals. If we fail to successfully promote and maintain our brand or if we incur excessive expenses in this effort, our business and operating results could be adversely affected.

 
 

 
Negative publicity could adversely affect our business and operating results.

Negative publicity about us, including about our product quality and reliability, changes to our products and services, privacy and security practices, litigation, regulatory activity, the actions of our users or user experience with our products and services, even if inaccurate, could adversely affect our reputation and the confidence in and the use of our products and services. For example, service outages could result in widespread media reports. Such negative publicity could also have an adverse effect on the size, engagement and loyalty of our user base and result in decreased revenue, which could adversely affect our business and operating results.

We focus on product innovation and user engagement rather than short-term operating results.

We encourage employees to quickly develop and help us launch new and innovative features. We focus on improving the user experience for our products and services and on developing new and improved products and services for the advertisers on our platform. We prioritize innovation and the experience for users and advertisers on our platform over short-term operating results. We may make product and service decisions that may reduce our short-term operating results if we believe that the decisions are consistent with its goals to improve the user experience and performance for advertisers, which we believe will improve our operating results over the long term. These decisions may not be consistent with the short-term expectations and may not produce the long-term benefits that we expect, in which case our user growth and user engagement, our relationships with advertisers and our business and operating results could be harmed. In addition, our focus on the user experience may negatively impact our relationships with existing or prospective advertisers. This could result in a loss of advertisers, which could harm our revenue and operating results.

Our products and services may contain undetected software errors, which could harm our business and operating results.

Our products and services incorporate complex software and we encourage our employees to quickly develop and help us launch new and innovative features. Our software may now or in the future contain, errors, bugs or vulnerabilities. Some errors in the software code may only be discovered after the product or service has been released. Any errors, bugs or vulnerabilities discovered in our code after release could result in damage to our reputation, loss of users, loss of platform partners, loss of advertisers or advertising revenue or liability for damages, any of which could adversely affect our business and operating results.

Our business is subject to complex and evolving U.S. laws and regulations. These laws and regulations are subject to change and uncertain interpretation, and could result in claims, changes to its business practices, monetary penalties, increased cost of operations or declines in user growth, user engagement or ad engagement, or otherwise harm our business.

We are subject to a variety of laws and regulations in the United States that involve matters central to our business, including privacy, rights of publicity, data protection, content regulation, intellectual property, competition, protection of minors, consumer protection and taxation. Many of these laws and regulations are still evolving and being tested in courts and could be interpreted or applied in ways that could harm our business, particularly in the new and rapidly evolving industry in which we operate. The introduction of new products or services may subject us to additional laws and regulations. There have been a number of recent legislative proposals in the United States, at both the federal and state level, that would impose new obligations in areas such as privacy. The U.S. government, including the Federal Trade Commission, or the FTC, and the Department of Commerce, has announced that it is reviewing the need for greater regulation for the collection of information concerning user behavior on the Internet and over mobile devices, including regulation aimed at restricting certain tracking and targeted advertising practices.

Additionally, recent amendments to U.S. patent laws may affect the ability of companies to protect their innovations and defend against claims of patent infringement. Having personal information may subject us to additional regulation. Further, it is difficult to predict how existing laws and regulations will be applied to its business and the new laws and regulations to which we may become subject, and it is possible that they may be interpreted and applied in a manner that is inconsistent with our practices. These existing and proposed laws and regulations can be costly to comply with and can delay or impede the development of new products and services, result in negative publicity, significantly increase our operating costs, require significant time and attention of management and technical personnel and subject us to inquiries or investigations, claims or other remedies, including fines or demands that we modify or cease existing business practices.

Even though our platform is for public self-expression conversation and personal interaction, user trust regarding privacy is important to the growth of users and the increase in user engagement on our platform, and privacy concerns relating to our products and services could damage our reputation and deter current and potential users and advertisers from using our products and services.

From time to time, concerns have been expressed by governments, regulators and others about whether mobile products, services or practices compromise the privacy of users and others. Concerns about, governmental or regulatory actions involving practices with regard to the collection, use, disclosure or security of personal information or other privacy-related matters, even if unfounded, could damage our reputation, cause us to lose users and advertisers and adversely affect our operating results. While we will strive to comply with applicable data protection laws and regulations, as we strive to comply with our own posted privacy policies and other obligations we may have with respect to privacy and data protection, the failure or perceived failure to comply may result, in inquiries and other proceedings or actions against us  by governments, regulators or others. These inquiries could result in negative publicity and damage to our reputation and brand, each of which could cause us to lose users and advertisers, which could have an adverse effect on our business.

Any systems failure or compromise of our security that results in the unauthorized access to or release of our users’ or advertisers’ data could significantly limit the adoption of our products and services and cause harm to our reputation and brand and, therefore, our business. We expect to continue to expend significant resources to protect against security breaches. The risk that these types of events could seriously harm our business is likely to increase as we expand the number of products and services we offer, increase the size of our user base and operate in other countries.

 
 

 
If our security measures are breached, or if our products and services are subject to attacks that degrade or deny the ability of users to access our products and services, our products and services may be perceived as not being secure, users and advertisers may curtail or stop using our products and services and our business and operating results could be harmed.

Our products and services involve the storage and transmission of users’ and advertisers’ information, and security breaches expose us to a risk of loss of this information, litigation and potential liability. We may experience cyber-attacks of varying degrees, and as a result, unauthorized parties may obtain, and may in the future obtain, access to its data or its users’ or advertisers’ data.  Our security measures may also be breached due to employee error, malfeasance or otherwise. Additionally, outside parties may attempt to fraudulently induce employees, users or advertisers to disclose sensitive information in order to gain access to our data or our users’ or advertisers’ data or accounts, or may otherwise obtain access to such data or accounts. Since our users and advertisers may use their accounts to establish and maintain online identities, unauthorized communications from our accounts that have been compromised may damage their reputations. Any such breach or unauthorized access could result in significant legal and financial exposure, damage to our reputation and a loss of confidence in the security of our products and services that could have an adverse effect on our business and operating results. Because the techniques used to obtain unauthorized access, disable or degrade service or sabotage systems change frequently and often are not recognized until launched against a target, we may be unable to anticipate these techniques or to implement adequate preventative measures. If an actual or perceived breach of security occurs, the market perception of the effectiveness of our security measures could be harmed, we could lose users and advertisers and we may incur significant legal and financial exposure, including legal claims and regulatory fines and penalties. Any of these actions could have a material and adverse effect on our business, reputation and operating results.

We depend on highly skilled personnel to grow and operate our business, and if we are unable to hire, retain and motivate its personnel, we may not be able to grow effectively.

Our future success will depend upon our continued ability to identify, hire, develop, motivate and retain highly skilled personnel, including senior management, engineers, designers and product managers. Our ability to execute efficiently is dependent upon contributions from our employees, in particular our senior management team.  We do not maintain key person life insurance for any employee. In addition, from time to time, there may be changes in our senior management team that may be disruptive to our business. If our senior management team, including any new hires that we may make, fails to work together effectively and to execute our plans and strategies on a timely basis, our business could be harmed. Our growth strategy also depends on our ability to expand our organization with highly skilled personnel. Identifying, recruiting, training and integrating qualified individuals will require significant time, expense and attention.  Competition for highly skilled personnel is intense, particularly in the San Francisco Bay Area, where our headquarters is located. We may need to invest significant amounts of cash and equity to attract and retain new employees and we may never realize returns on these investments. If we are not able to effectively add and retain employees, our ability to achieve our strategic objectives will be adversely impacted, and our business will be harmed.

Our business is subject to the risks of earthquakes, fire, power outages, floods and other catastrophic events, and to interruption by man-made problems such as terrorism.

A significant natural disaster, such as an earthquake, fire, flood or significant power outage could have a material adverse impact on our business, operating results, and financial condition. Our headquarters is located in the San Francisco Bay Area, a region known for seismic activity. Despite any precautions we may take, the occurrence of a natural disaster or other unanticipated problems at our data centers could result in lengthy interruptions in our services. In addition, acts of terrorism and other geo-political unrest could cause disruptions in our business. All of the aforementioned risks may be further increased if our disaster recovery plans prove to be inadequate. We have a disaster recovery program, which allows us to move production to a back-up data center in the event of a catastrophe. Although this program is functional, we do not currently serve network traffic equally from each data center, so if our primary data center shuts down, there will be a period of time that our products or services, or certain of our products or services, will remain inaccessible to our users or our users may experience severe issues accessing our products and services. We do not carry business interruption insurance sufficient to compensate us for the potentially significant losses, including the potential harm to our business that may result from interruptions in our ability to provide our products and services.

 
 

 
Risks Related to Our Company
 
Messrs. Dean and Robert Rositano, as our directors and officers, own a significant percentage of the voting power of our stock and will be able to exercise significant influence and control over the matters subject to stockholder approval and our operations.

After the merger with iHookup Social, Inc., Messrs. Dean and Robert Rositano may be deemed to own (directly and/or beneficially) 100% of our Series A preferred stock. As of February 5, 2014, the following entities and individuals own the following shares of our Series A preferred stock:
 
•  
Messrs. Dean and Robert Rositano each own 4,510,400 shares;
 
•  
Copper Creek Holdings, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company owned and managed by Robert Rositano and his wife Stacy Rositano, owns 36,083,350 shares;
 
•  
Checkmate Mobile, Inc., a Delaware corporation, owns 4,895,850 shares - Messrs. Dean and Robert Rositano are each 19.3% stockholders and serve as officers and directors of CheckMate Mobile, Inc. 

The holders of preferred stock are entitled to cast votes equal to nine (9) times the total number of shares of common stock which are issued and outstanding, voting together with the holders of common stock as a single class. Such Series A Preferred Stock shall also be convertible into the number of shares of common stock which equals nine (9) times the total number of shares of common stock which are issued and outstanding at the time of conversion until the closing of a Qualified Financing (i.e. the sale and issuance of our equity securities that results in gross proceeds in excess of $2,500,000). As a result of the transaction, the former iHookup stockholders received a controlling interest in the Company. As a result of Messrs. Dean and Robert Rositano’s ownership interests and voting power described above, Messrs. Dean and Robert Rositano currently are in a position to influence and control, subject to our organizational documents and Nevada law, the composition of our Board of Directors and the outcome of corporate actions requiring stockholder approval, such as mergers, business combinations and dispositions of assets, among other corporate transactions. In addition, this concentration of voting power could discourage others from initiating a potential merger, takeover or other change of control transaction that may otherwise be beneficial to the Company, which could adversely affect the market price of our securities.

If we are unable to pay the convertible promissory notes when obligations become due, the note holders may take proceedings under terms of default.
 
In the event of default under terms in the convertible promissory notes, the note holder may enforce remedies including acceleration of payment in full plus interest and other charges, and an increase in interest rates of up to 24% when allowable by law.
 
Our disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting are not effective, which may cause our financial reporting to be unreliable and lead to misinformation being disseminated to the public.
 
Our management evaluated our disclosure controls and procedures as of December 31, 2013 and concluded that as of those dates, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective. The ineffectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures was due to (i) inadequate segregation of duties and ineffective risk assessment; and (ii) insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of both US GAAP and SEC guidelines.
 
As of the date of this annual report on Form 10-K, we believe that these material weaknesses continue to exist and our disclosure controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting are not effective. If such material weakness and ineffective controls are not promptly corrected in the future, our ability to report quarterly and annual financial results or other information required to be disclosed on a timely and accurate basis may be adversely affected. Also such material weakness and ineffective controls could cause our financial reporting to be unreliable and lead to misinformation being disseminated to the public. Investors relying upon this misinformation may make an uninformed investment decision.
 
We have a limited operating history on which to base an evaluation of our business and prospects.

We have a short operating history, which limits our ability to forecast our future operating results and subjects us to a number of uncertainties, including our ability to plan for and model future growth. We have encountered and will continue to encounter risks and uncertainties frequently experienced by growing companies in developing industries. If our assumptions regarding these uncertainties, which we use to plan our business, are incorrect or change in reaction to changes in our markets, or if we do not address these risks successfully, our operating and financial results could differ materially from our expectations and our business could suffer.
 
 
 

 
Risks Associated with Our Common Stock
 
Messrs. Dean and Robert Rositano, as our directors and officers, own a significant percentage of the voting power of our stock and will be able to exercise significant influence and control over the matters subject to stockholder approval and our operations.

After the merger with iHookup Social, Inc., Messrs. Dean and Robert Rositano may be deemed to own (directly and/or beneficially) 100% of our Series A preferred stock. As of February 5, 2014, the following entities and individuals own the following shares of our Series A preferred stock:

•  
Messrs. Dean and Robert Rositano each own 4,510,400 shares;
•  
Copper Creek Holdings, LLC, a Nevada limited liability company owned and managed by Robert Rositano and his wife Stacy Rositano, owns 36,083,350 shares;
•  
Checkmate Mobile, Inc., a Delaware corporation, owns 4,895,850 shares - Messrs. Dean and Robert Rositano are each 19.3% stockholders and serve as officers and directors of CheckMate Mobile, Inc. 

The holders of preferred stock are entitled to cast votes equal to nine (9) times the total number of shares of common stock which are issued and outstanding, voting together with the holders of common stock as a single class. Such Series A Preferred Stock shall also be convertible into the number of shares of common stock which equals nine (9) times the total number of shares of common stock which are issued and outstanding at the time of conversion until the closing of a Qualified Financing (i.e. the sale and issuance of our equity securities that results in gross proceeds in excess of $2,500,000). As a result of the transaction, the former iHookup stockholders received a controlling interest in the Company. As a result of Messrs. Dean and Robert Rositano’s ownership interests and voting power described above, Messrs. Dean and Robert Rositano currently are in a position to influence and control, subject to our organizational documents and Nevada law, the composition of our Board of Directors and the outcome of corporate actions requiring stockholder approval, such as mergers, business combinations and dispositions of assets, among other corporate transactions. In addition, this concentration of voting power could discourage others from initiating a potential merger, takeover or other change of control transaction that may otherwise be beneficial to the Company, which could adversely affect the market price of our securities.

If we issue additional shares in the future, it will result in the dilution of our existing shareholders.
 
As of December 31, 2013, our articles of incorporation authorize the issuance of up to 3,700,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $0.0001 per share. Our board of directors may choose to issue some or all of such shares to acquire one or more companies or properties and to fund our overhead and general operating requirements. The issuance of any such shares will reduce the book value per share and may contribute to a reduction in the market price of the outstanding shares of our common stock. If we issue any such additional shares, such issuance will reduce the proportionate ownership and voting power of all current shareholders. Further, such issuance may result in a change of control of our corporation.

The price of our common stock may be negatively impacted by factors which are unrelated to our operations.
 
The market price of our common stock could fluctuate substantially due to a variety of factors, including market perception of our ability to achieve our planned growth, quarterly operating results of our competitors, trading volume in our common stock, changes in general conditions in the economy and the financial markets or other developments affecting our competitors or us. In addition, the stock market is subject to extreme price and volume fluctuations. This volatility has had a significant effect on the market price of securities issued by many companies for reasons unrelated to their operating performance and could have the same effect on our common stock.
 
We do not intend to pay cash dividends on any investment in the shares of stock of our company.
 
We have never paid any cash dividends and currently do not intend to pay any cash dividends for the foreseeable future. Because we do not intend to declare cash dividends, any gain on an investment in our company will need to come through an increase in the stock’s price. This may never happen and investors may lose all of their investment in our company.
 
Trading of our stock is restricted by the Securities Exchange Commission’s penny stock regulations, which may limit a stockholder’s ability to buy and sell our common stock.
 
The Securities and Exchange Commission has adopted regulations which generally define “penny stock” to be any equity security that has a market price (as defined) less than $5.00 per share or an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. Our securities are covered by the penny stock rules, which impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell to persons other than established customers and “accredited investors”. The term “accredited investor” refers generally to institutions with assets in excess of $5,000,000 or individuals with a net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual income exceeding $200,000 or $300,000 jointly with their spouse. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from the rules, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document in a form prepared by the Securities and Exchange Commission, which provides information about penny stocks and the nature and level of risks in the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must provide the customer with current bid and offer quotations for the penny stock, the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction and monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer’s account. The bid and offer quotations, and the broker-dealer and salesperson compensation information, must be given to the customer orally or in writing prior to effecting the transaction and must be given to the customer in writing before or with the customer’s confirmation. In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from these rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser’s written agreement to the transaction. These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the level of trading activity in the secondary market for the stock that is subject to these penny stock rules. Consequently, these penny stock rules may affect the ability of broker-dealers to trade our securities. We believe that the penny stock rules discourage investor interest in and limit the marketability of our common stock.
 
FINRA sales practice requirements may also limit a stockholder’s ability to buy and sell our stock.
 
In addition to the “penny stock” rules described above, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (known as “FINRA”) has adopted rules that require that in recommending an investment to a customer, a broker-dealer must have reasonable grounds for believing that the investment is suitable for that customer. Prior to recommending speculative low priced securities to their non-institutional customers, broker-dealers must make reasonable efforts to obtain information about the customer’s financial status, tax status, investment objectives and other information. Under interpretations of these rules, FINRA believes that there is a high probability that speculative low priced securities will not be suitable for at least some customers. FINRA requirements make it more difficult for broker-dealers to recommend that their customers buy our common stock, which may limit your ability to buy and sell our stock and have an adverse effect on the market for our shares.

Risks Relating to the Early Stage of our Company and Ability to Raise Capital
 
We are at a very early stage and our success is subject to the substantial risks inherent in the establishment of a new business venture.
 
The implementation of our business strategy is in a very early stage and subject to all of the risks inherent in the establishment of a new business venture. Accordingly, our intended business and prospective operations may not prove to be successful in the near future, if at all. Any future success that we might enjoy will depend upon many factors, many of which are beyond our control, or which cannot be predicted at this time, and which could have a material adverse effect upon our financial condition, business prospects and operations and the value of an investment in our company.
 
We expect to suffer continued operating losses and we may not be able to achieve profitability.
 
We expect to continue to incur significant development and marketing expenses in the foreseeable future related to the launch and commercialization of our products and services. As a result, we will be sustaining substantial operating and net losses, and it is possible that we will never be able to achieve profitability.
 

 
 
 
 

 

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS - continued
 
We may have difficulty raising additional capital, which could deprive us of necessary resources.
 
In order to support the initiatives envisioned in our business plan, we will need to raise additional funds through public or private debt or equity financing, collaborative relationships or other arrangements. Our ability to raise additional financing depends on many factors beyond our control, including the state of the capital markets, the market price of our common stock, and the development of competitive projects by others. Because our common stock is not listed on a major stock market, many investors may not be willing or allowed to purchase our common shares or may demand steep discounts. Sufficient additional financing may not be available to us or may be available only on terms that would result in further dilution to the current owners of our common stock.
 
During the year ended December 31, 2013, we received $709,437 in convertible note financing and repaid $194,159 of convertible note debt. During the quarter ended March 31, 2014, we received $526,966 in convertible note financing and repaid $216,966 of convertible note debt. However, we do not have any firm commitments for funding beyond this recent financing. If we are unsuccessful in raising additional capital, or the terms of raising such capital are unacceptable, we may have to modify our business plan and/or significantly curtail our planned activities. If we are successful raising additional capital through the issuance of additional equity, our investor’s interests will be diluted.
 
There are substantial doubts about our ability to continue as a going concern and if we are unable to continue our business, our shares may have little or no value.
 
Our ability to become a profitable operating company is dependent upon our ability to generate revenues and/or obtain financing adequate to implement our business plan. Achieving a level of revenues adequate to support our cost structure has raised doubts about our ability to continue as a going concern. We plan to attempt to raise additional equity capital by issuing shares and, if necessary through one or more private placement or public offerings, and via the securities purchase agreement/equity line financing. However, the doubts raised relating to our ability to continue as a going concern may make our shares an unattractive investment for potential investors. These factors, among others, may make it difficult to raise any additional capital.
 
Failure to effectively manage our growth could place additional strains on our managerial, operational and financial resources and could adversely affect our business and prospective operating results.
 
Our anticipated growth is expected to continue to place a strain on our managerial, operational and financial resources. Further, as we expand our user and advertiser base, we will be required to manage multiple relationships. Any further growth by us, or an increase in the number of our strategic relationships will increase this strain on our managerial, operational and financial resources. This strain may inhibit our ability to achieve the rapid execution necessary to implement our business plan, and could have a material adverse effect upon our financial condition, business prospects and prospective operations and the value of an investment in our company.

Mineral Properties
 
Pursuant to the Asset Purchase Agreement, we have acquired a 100% interest in the Wyoming Iron Complex properties. The mineral concessions and rights that form the Wyoming Iron Complex property consist of 23 unpatented US mining claims (Strong Creek Claims) located under the Mining Law of 1872, comprising approximately 463 acres, and a  mineral leases (Iron Mountain Lease) totalling approximately 320 acres with Chugwater Mining Company. The mining claims were originally staked by John Simons, an individual, then conveyed to Wyomex Resources Inc, and then assigned to Wyomex LLC, a duly incorporated limited liability company under the laws of Wyoming., and are registered with the Office of the Registrar Albany County, Wyoming and with the US Bureau of Land Management located in Cheyenne Wyoming and registered in the name of Wyomex LLC in accordance with the requirements of the Mining Law of 1872.  Costs of maintaining the unpatented mining claims in 2010 were $140 per claim payable annually by August 31st. Wyomex LLC is also the lessee under the  aforementioned mineral lease, covering the fee estate for the SEј of Section 22, T.19N., R. 71W., 6th P.M., Albany County, Wyoming. Cost of the mining lease is $1000 per month payable as an advance royalty. Subsequent to December 31, 2013 the Company is in the process of returning the Wyoming Iron Complex properties back to Wyomex Resources Inc via the terms in a mutual release agreement.
 
 The unpatented lode mining claims are situated in an unorganized mining district, Albany County, Wyoming, in Sections 14 and 24, Township 19 North, Range 72 West, 6th Principal Meridian, the names of which and the place of record of the location notices thereof in the official records of the county recorder and the authorized office of the Bureau of Land Management are as follows:

Technical Reports
 
All reports completed prior to January 2002 are considered to be “historic in nature” and are not compliant with National Instrument 43-101 or SEC Guide 7, and therefore cannot be relied upon.  In August 2005, a due diligence program was undertaken by Radar Acquisitions Corp. in which 10 rotary air blast drill holes were completed on a selected area of the Strong Creek portion of the property that exhibited higher grade titanium grades.  A technical report compliant with National Instrument 43-101 was produced for this area but its content is not considered to be applicable to our planned work program.

Description of Property, Location, Means and Access
 
The Wyoming Iron Complex is located approximately 30 miles north-northeast of the city Laramie in southeastern Wyoming, (See Figure 1 below). The Strong Creek Claims are located in the central portion of the Laramie Anorthosite Complex (“LAC”), approximately a one hour drive north from Laramie, along Hwy 287 to 34 and then secondary roads from the Greaser Ranch.  The Iron Mountain Leases are located approximately 6 miles to the east of Strong Creek and are accessible by secondary roads.  The Strong Creek portion of the Wyoming Iron Complex also lies 9 miles to the east of the main rail line of the Union Pacific. Power and water are available at the property.
 
On December 7, 2012, we filed suit in state court in Albany County, Wyoming against DSS Holdings LLC and Douglas Samuelson (“Samuelson”) to regain preliminary access to the Wyoming Iron Complex. The road used by us to access the Wyoming Iron Complex crosses Samuelson’s property. Samuelson has locked the gate across the road and denied our repeated requests for access. The suit was filed in the District Court of the Second Judicial District in Wyoming, after negotiations between the parties were unsuccessful. Under Wyoming Statute§ 1-26-507, we hoped to gain access to our property in order to conduct studies and collect samples of iron ore from the existing Iron Mountain pit and stockpile in order to evaluate the suitability of these materials to meet the specifications of potential customers. On February 11, 2013, our petition to use the road was denied. We are now pursuing the condemnation efforts and are also seeking another preliminary access hearing. We have sent a letter to Samuelson as a requirement to condemn an easement over the road under Wyoming Statute§1-26-505 through 1-26-508, and have sent another letter as a precursor to a second preliminary access hearing. As of December 31, 2013, no further action is planned by the Company.
 
The leases relating to the Wyoming Iron Complex, as amended by instrument dated February 1, 2012, continues in perpetuity until commercial production provided that a $1,000 per month advance royalty is paid (as adjusted for inflation). At the commencement of commercial production, the royalty would be paid as a function of gross metal values on products produced and sold.
 
The closest major town to the Wyoming Iron Complex is Laramie, Wyoming, a city of approximately 25,000 people. It has an elevation of 7,200 feet, resulting in a varied, but semi-arid climate. Laramie is located along the I-80 corridor and is on the main rail line of the Union Pacific. Laramie is a full-service city which hosts all amenities, and is the home of the University of Wyoming.

Climate, Local Resources, Infrastructure and Physiography
 
Albany County, population 27,204 (US Census Bureau, 2003), is located in the high plains region of south-eastern Wyoming. Most of the county is located in a cool and arid basin (<12 inches of precipitation annually) containing the Laramie River watershed, a major tributary to the North Platte River system. The county is flanked on the west by the Medicine Bow Mountains and on the east by the Laramie Range.
 
Due to its elevation, Wyoming has a relatively cool climate. Above the 6,000 foot level, the temperature rarely exceeds 100 F. Summer nights are usually cool, though daytime readings may be quite high. Away from the mountains, low July temperatures range from 50 to 60 F. A typical winter would see freezing temperatures from December through March with most accumulation of snow occurring in March.
 
History of Exploration
 
Since the earliest geological investigations of the area by Stansbury in 1851, and Hayden in 1871, Fe-Ti oxide deposits have been known in Albany County. There have been numerous economic evaluations of these deposits by Ball, 1907; Singewald, 1913; Frey, 1946 and Hild, 1953.
 
From the completion of the railway until 1975 the property was owned by Union Pacific Resources (“UPR”) a wholly owned subsidiary of Union Pacific. From the mid 1950’s through 1972 the properties were drilled and evaluated which produced a resource estimate (non-compliant with SEC Guide 7 or Canadian NI 43-101) for contained iron, titanium dioxide and vanadium.


 
 
 
 

 


ITEM 2. PROPERTIES - continued
 
UPR conducted a comprehensive drilling program on both of the properties and which included bulk sampling and a 30,000 ton pilot plant test based on the Krupp Renn pyrometallurgical recovery process.  This was part of a study produced in 1968 later revisited in 1972 for the processing of Fe and Ti ore  which concluded that Iron  can be recovered  using the Iron Mountain ores and that the Strong Creek concentrates may also be  amenable to the Krupp Renn process.  The iron material produced from this process is referred to as Luppen – a semi-steel product containing 98.5% iron, considered to be a superior feed stock for electric arc furnaces as it contains none of the contaminants found in scrap or Pig Iron.  This test also confirmed that a portion of the Vanadium could be recovered as Vanadium Pentoxide.
 
In 1995, the State of Wyoming drilled 27 large bore rotary drill holes on the Strong Creek Property to obtain a bulk sample for testing by the laboratories US Bureau of Mines of Salt Lake City,  Utah and by Hazen Research Inc. of Golden, Colorado.  These tests demonstrated that the ore can be concentrated using a coarsely ground product (-20 + 40 mesh), followed by spiral concentration, magnetic separation, and electrostatic concentration to produce two distinct concentrates of Titanium Dioxide  and Magnetite – Vanadium .
 
To date, our activities have been limited to organizational matters, obtaining a geology report on the Strong Creek claims and planning and carrying out our initial, 2000 foot, 3-hole exploration program on the Strong Creek claims.
 
Geological Setting and Mineralization
 
The Laramie Anorthosite Complex (LAC), hosting the Strong Creek Fe-Ti deposits, is a 1.4 Billion year old intrusion that was emplaced into the Cheyenne suture between the Archean Wyoming Province and Early Proterozoic island-arc assemblages of the south-western United States. The LAC is comprised of older, layered anorthositic and gabbroic rocks and younger syenitic to monzonitic rocks.
 
The oxide-bearing gabbro-noritic and anothorositic rocks at Strong Creek host layered, late stage cumulate horizons of disseminated oxide mineralization. These rocks are unaltered and only show weak alteration along late fractures. A north-south, doubly plunging antiform produces local geology that has a core complex of anorthosite grading into progressively more differentiated leuco-gabbro-norite and syenite outer rims.
 
The economic model proposed for the Wyoming Iron Complex is an example of a Magmatic Ti­Fe-V Oxide Deposit, which is described in “Magmatic Ti-Fe±V Oxide Deposits, in Geological Fieldwork 1997, British Columbia Ministry of Employment and Investment” by Gross, G.A., Gower, C.F., and Lefebure, D. V., as follows:

 
Geologic Setting: Deposits occur in intrusive complexes which typically are emplaced at deeper levels in the crust. Progressive differentiation of liquids residual from anorthosite-nodte magmas leads to late stage intrusions enriched in Fe and Ti oxides and apatite. Some of the iron-titanium deposits occur at continental margins related to island arc magmatism, followed by an episode of orogenic compression.
 
 
Age of Mineralization: Mainly Mid proterozoic (1.65 to 0.90 Bn Years old) for the ilmenite deposits, but this may be a consequence of a particular combination of tectonic circumstances, rather than any a prior temporal control. The Fe-Ti deposits with titaniferous magnetite do not appear to be restricted in time.
 
 
Host/Associated Rocks: Hosted by massive, layered or zoned intrusive complexes - anorthosite, norite, gabbro, diorite, diabase, quartz monzonite and hornblende pyroxenite. The anorthosites are commonly emplaced in granitoid gneiss, granulite, schist, amphibolite and quartzite. Some deposits associated with lower grade rocks.
 



 
 
 
 

 
 

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
On December 7, 2012, we filed suit in state court in Albany County, Wyoming against DSS Holdings LLC and Douglas Samuelson (“Samuelson”) to regain preliminary access to our Iron Mountain holdings. This road crosses Samuelson’s property. Samuelson has locked the gate across the road providing access to the Iron Mountain holdings and denied our repeated requests for access. The suit was filed in the District Court of the Second Judicial District in Wyoming, after negotiations between the parties were unsuccessful. Under Wyoming Statute§ 1-26-507, we hoped to gain access to our property in order to conduct studies and collect samples of iron ore from the existing Iron Mountain pit and stockpile in order to evaluate the suitability of these materials to meet the specifications of potential customers.
 
On February 11, 2013, our petition to use the road was denied. We pursued condemnation efforts and sought a second preliminary access hearing. We sent a letter to Samuelson as a requirement to condemn an easement over the road under Wyoming Statute§1-26-505 through 1-26-508 and have sent another letter as a precursor to a second preliminary access hearing. As of December 31, 2013, no further action is planned by the Company.
 
Other than the suit against DSS Holdings LLC and Samuelson, we know of no material pending legal proceedings to which our company or any of our subsidiaries is a party or of which any of our properties, or the properties of any of our subsidiaries, is the subject. In addition, we do not know of any such proceedings contemplated by any governmental authorities.
 
We know of no material proceedings in which any of our directors, officers or affiliates, or any registered or beneficial stockholder is a party adverse to our company or any of our subsidiaries or has a material interest adverse to our company or any of our subsidiaries.
 
ITEM 4. MINE SAFETY DISCLOSURES

Pursuant to Section 1503(a) of the recently enacted Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, issuers that are operators, or that have a subsidiary that is an operator, of a coal or other mine in the United States are required to disclose in their periodic reports filed with the SEC information regarding specified health and safety violations, orders and citations, related assessments and legal actions, and mining-related fatalities. During the year ended December 31, 2013, our U.S. exploration properties were not subject to regulation by the Federal Mine Safety and Health Administration ("MSHA") under the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977 as no mining activity has occurred on our properties.

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
Our management’s discussion and analysis provides a narrative about our financial performance and condition that should be read in conjunction with the audited and unaudited consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto included in this annual report on Form 10-K. This discussion contains forward looking statements reflecting our current expectations and estimates and assumptions about events and trends that may affect our future operating results or financial position. Our actual results and the timing of certain events could differ materially from those discussed in these forward-looking statements due to a number of factors, including, but not limited to, those set forth in the sections of this annual report on Form 10-K titled “Risk Factors” beginning at page 13 above and “Forward-Looking Statements” beginning at page 4 above.
 
Overview
 
We were a mineral exploration company until January 31, 2014 when we effected the Merger with iHookup Social. Our plan of operation was to carry out exploration work on Wyoming Iron Complex in order to ascertain whether it possessed commercially exploitable quantities of iron ore and other metals, but since the Merger we have no plans to conduct any exploration work.
 
We have no ongoing revenues from mineral exploration, have achieved losses since inception, have been issued a going concern opinion by our auditors and rely upon the sale of our securities to fund operations.  Accordingly, we will be dependent on future additional financing in order to fund our anticipated cash needs, and to seek other business opportunities in new business opportunities. There are no assurances that we will be able to complete such future additional financing for other business opportunities.


 
 
 
 

 
 


ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS - continued
 
Prior to the Merger, we have been involved in the examination and investigation of the mineral property that we believed may have contained valuable minerals, for the purpose of discovering the presence of ore, if any, and its extent. There is no assurance that a commercially viable mineral deposit exists on our property, and a great deal of further exploration would be required before a final evaluation as to the economic and legal feasibility for our exploration is determined. We have no known reserves of any type of mineral. To date, we have not discovered an economically viable mineral deposit on the mineral property.
 
Results of Operations
 
Years Ended December 31, 2013 and 2012
 
Our cash as of December 31, 2013 was $18,006. As a result of our minimal amount of revenues and ongoing expenditures in pursuit of our business, we incurred net losses since our inception. For the period from inception (June 5, 2007) to December 31, 2013 we had operating revenues of $4,855 and incurred a net loss of $7,293,427. For the year ended December 31, 2013, our net loss was $2,855,474.
 
Our operating expenses for our fiscal years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 and the changes between those periods for the respective items are summarized as follows:

Total operating expenses decreased by 21% for the year ended December 31, 2013 compared to the same period ended December 31, 2012.  The decrease in expenses over the prior year was due primarily to lower mineral exploration costs, investor relations expense, and stock based compensation. Offsetting the decrease were higher accretion on promissory notes, financing costs, and interest due to convertible debt financing.

As of December 31, 2013, we had $18,006 in cash, as compared to $145,433 as of December 31, 2012. Our cash decreased due to operating expenses incurred during the period.

As of December 31, 2013, we had accounts payable of $296,539, as compared to $60,862 as of December 31, 2012. Our accounts payable increased due to a shortfall in financing to pay liabilities.
 
As of December 31, 2013, we had a current portion of promissory note of $257,911, as compared to $127,353 as of December 31, 2012. Our current portion of promissory note increased due to payments due under the Wyomex property acquisition.
 
As of December 31, 2013, we had accrued expenses to related parties of $129,193, as compared to $6,479 as of December 31, 2012. Our accrued expenses to related parties increased due to amounts due to officers.
 
We currently do not have sufficient capital to funds our needs for the next 12 months. We established an equity line of credit which became effective June 24, 2013. Due to our current market price, we do not anticipate that the equity line, described below, will be sufficient to meet our needs.

Net cash used in operating activities decreased by 38% for our 12-month period ended December 31, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012.  The reason for the decrease is decreased cash operating expenses.
 
Investing Activities
 
Net cash used in investing activities decreased by 71% for our 12-month period ended December 31, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012.  The reason for the decrease is fewer payments on mineral properties.
 
Financing Activities
 
Net cash provided by financing activities decreased by 51% for our 12-month period ended December 31, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012.  The reason for the decrease is the reduction in private placement funding, partially offset by higher convertible notes.
 
Securities Purchase Agreement with Ascendiant Capital Partners, LLC (Equity Line of Credit)
 
On October 18, 2012, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement (the “Equity Line of Credit Agreement”) with Ascendiant Capital Partners, LLC (“Ascendiant”), as amended on January 9, 2013, February 19, 2013 and April 2, 2013, pursuant to which the Company may sell and issue to Ascendiant, and Ascendiant is obligated to purchase, up to $10,000,000 in value of its shares of common stock from time to time over a 36 month period.
 
The Company will determine, at its own discretion, the timing and amount of its sales of stock, subject to certain conditions and limitations. Shares will be priced to be the lesser of (i) 75% of the volume weighted average price on the date of delivery of the draw down notice and (ii) 75% of the closing price of the last transaction on the date of delivery of the draw down notice as long as such price is within the bid and offer at the close (if such transaction is not within the bid and offer at the close, then the next most recent transaction will be selected until one is located that is within the bid and offer at close). The maximum dollar amount as to each draw down is to be equal to (i) 20% of the average daily trading volume during the 7 trading days immediately prior to the date of the draw down notice, eliminating the 2 days with the greatest trading volume and the 2 days with the least trading volume, multiplied by (ii) the volume weighted average price on the trading day immediately prior to the date of the draw down notice; provided, however, no draw down can exceed $25,000. Only one draw down will be allowed on each trading day. The Company can terminate the equity line at any time.

Outstanding principal multiplied by 130% together with accrued interest and unpaid interest thereon if prepaid within a period of 90 days beginning on the issuance date;
 
 
Outstanding principal multiplied by 140% together with accrued interest and unpaid interest thereon if prepaid during the period beginning 91 days following the issuance date and ending on the date that is 180 days following the issuance date;
 
 
Outstanding principal multiplied by 150% together with accrued interest and unpaid interest thereon if prepaid during the period beginning 181 days following the issuance date through the maturity date.
 
 
In the event of default, the amount of principal and interest not paid when due bear default interest at the rate of 24% per annum and the LG Notes becomes immediately due and payable.

On September 18, 2013,the Company entered into a convertible debenture agreement with Magna LLC in the amount of $195,000.

The unpaid principal portion on the convertible debenture is convertible in whole or in part as follows at a conversion price equal to 80% of the average price of the Company’s common stock for the 5 trading days preceding the conversion day. The holders must not convert more than 300%  of the average daily dollar volume  in the 10 day trading period ending on the day that the holder elects conversion.
 
Subsequent to year-end the Company obtained proceeds of $526,966 for various convertible debenture agreements (“Debentures”) entered into with face value totaling $526,966, bearing interest at 8% per annum and maturing between six months and one year from the dates of issuance. The principal and interest of the Debentures are convertible into common shares of the Company at various conversion rates as outlined in each agreement (incorporated herein by reference to the current reports on Form 8-K, previously filed with the SEC between January 1, 2014 and April 15, 2014).

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS - continued
 
Going Concern
 
At December 31, 2013, we had an accumulated deficit of $7,307,575 since our inception and incurred a net loss of $2,869,622 for the year ended December 31, 2013.  We expect to incur further losses in the development of our business, all of which casts substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to generate future profitable operations and/or to obtain the necessary financing to meet our obligations and repay our liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. Our independent auditors included an explanatory paragraph regarding substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern in their report on our annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013.
 
We have generated minimal revenues and have incurred losses since inception. Accordingly, we will be dependent on future additional financing in order to seek other business opportunities in the mining industry or new business opportunities. Prior to the Merger, we were considered an exploration stage company as we were involved in the examination and investigation of the mineral property for the purpose of discovering the presence of ore. As of December 31, 2013, there is no assurance that a commercially viable mineral deposit exists on our property, and a great deal of further exploration will be required before a final evaluation as to the economic and legal feasibility for our exploration is determined. We have no known reserves of any type of mineral. To date, we have not discovered an economically viable mineral deposit on the mineral property, and there is no assurance that we will discover one.
 
Application of Critical Accounting Policies
 
Basis of Presentation
 
Our financial statements and related notes are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, and are expressed in US dollars. Our fiscal year-end is December 31, 2013.
 
Use of Estimates
 
The preparation of these statements in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses in the reporting period. We regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions related to useful life and recoverability of long-lived assets, deferred income tax asset valuations, asset retirement obligations, financial instrument valuations, and loss contingencies. We base our estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. The actual results experienced by us may differ materially and adversely from our estimates. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations will be affected.
 
Revenue Recognition
 
We recognize revenue when products are fully delivered or services have been provided and collection is reasonably assured.
 
Advertising Costs
 
Our policy regarding advertising is to expense advertising when incurred.


 
 
 
 

 
 


ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS - continued
 
Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
We consider all highly liquid instruments purchased with a maturity of six months or less to be cash equivalents to the extent the funds are not being held for investment purposes.
 
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
 
We continually monitor events and changes in circumstances that could indicate carrying amounts of long-lived assets may not be recoverable. When such events or changes in circumstances are present, we assess the recoverability of long-lived assets by determining whether the carrying value of such assets will be recovered through undiscounted expected future cash flows.
 
If the total of the future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of those assets, we recognize an impairment loss based on the excess of the carrying amount over the fair value of the assets. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or the fair value less costs to sell.
 
Stock-based compensation
 
We record stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Based Compensation, which requires the measurement and recognition of compensation expense based on estimated fair values for all share-based awards made to employees and directors, including stock options.
 
ASC 718 requires companies to estimate the fair value of share-based awards on the date of grant using an option-pricing model. We use the Black-Scholes option pricing model as its method in determining fair value. This model is affected by our stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of subjective variables. These subjective variables include, but are not limited to our expected stock price volatility over the terms of the awards, and actual and projected employee stock option exercise behaviors. The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as an expense in the statement of operations over the requisite service period.
 
Mineral Property Costs
 
Prior to the Merger, we were an exploration stage company and did not realize any revenues from our operations.  We were primarily engaged in the acquisition and exploration of mineral properties. Mineral property exploration costs were expensed as incurred. Mineral property acquisition costs were initially capitalized.  We assess the carrying costs for impairment, whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying cost may not be recoverable under ASC 360, Property, Plant, and Equipment at each reporting date. When it has been determined that a mineral property can be economically developed as a result of establishing proven and probable reserves, the costs then incurred to develop such property, will be capitalized. Such costs will be amortized using the units-of-production method over the estimated recoverable reserves. If mineral properties are subsequently abandoned or impaired, any capitalized costs will be charged to operations.
 
Asset Retirement Obligations
 
We record asset retirement obligations in accordance with ASC 410-20, Asset Retirement Obligations, which addresses financial accounting and reporting for obligations associated with the retirement of tangible long-lived assets and the associated retirement costs. The standard applies to legal obligations associated with the retirement of long-lived assets that result from the acquisition, construction, development and normal use of the asset. ASC 410-20 requires that the fair value of a liability for an asset retirement obligation be recognized in the period in which it is incurred if a reasonable estimate of fair value can be made. The fair value of the liability is added to the carrying amount of the associated asset and this additional carrying amount is depreciated over the life of the asset. The liability is accreted at the end of each period through charges to operating expense. If the obligation is settled for other than the carrying amount of the liability, we will recognize a gain or loss on settlement. As at December 31, 2013, we have not incurred any asset retirement obligation related to the exploration and development of its resource properties.


 
 
 
 

 
 


ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS - continued
 
Comprehensive Loss
 
ASC 220, Comprehensive Income establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive loss and its components in the consolidated financial statements. As at December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, we have no items that represent other comprehensive loss and, therefore, have not included a schedule of other comprehensive loss in the financial statements.
 
Financial Instruments
 
FASB ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value under generally accepted accounting principles and enhances disclosures about fair value measurements. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Valuation techniques used to measure fair value, as required by ASC 820, must maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs.
 
Our assessment of the significance of a particular input to the fair value measurements requires judgment, and may affect the valuation of the assets and liabilities being measured and their placement within the fair value hierarchy. The carrying values of cash, accounts payable, and due to related parties approximate fair values because of the short-term maturity of these instruments. Unless otherwise noted, it is management’s opinion that we are not exposed to significant interest, currency or credit risks arising from these financial instruments.
 
Basic and Diluted Net Loss Per Share
 
We compute net loss per share in accordance with ASC 260, Earnings per Share.  ASC 260 requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) on the face of the statement of operations. Basic EPS is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method and convertible preferred stock using the if-converted method. In computing diluted EPS, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants. Diluted EPS excludes all dilutive potential shares if their effect is anti-dilutive. Shares underlying these securities totaled approximately 8,367,000 as of December 31, 2013.
 
Income Taxes
 
We account for income taxes using the asset and liability method in accordance with ASC 740, Income Taxes. The asset and liability method provides that deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and for operating loss and tax credit carry forwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using the currently enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. We record a valuation allowance to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount that is believed more likely than not to be realized.
 
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
We have implemented all other new accounting pronouncements that are in effect and that may impact its financial statements and does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm

 

 

 
To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of
Titan Iron Ore Corp.
(An exploration stage company)
 

 
We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Titan Iron Ore Corp. (an exploration stage company) as of December 31, 2013 and 2012 and the related statements of comprehensive loss, stockholders’ equity (deficit) and cash flows for the years then ended and for the period from June 5, 2007 (date of inception) to December 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 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. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe 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 Titan Iron Ore Corp. (an exploration stage company) as of December 31, 2013 and 2012, and the results of its operations, stockholders’ deficit and cash flows for the years then ended and for the period from June 5, 2007 (date of inception) to December 31, 2013 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.
 
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 1 to the financial statements, the Company has a working capital deficit and has accumulated losses since inception. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also discussed in Note 1. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
