Overview

 

The Company filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection on May 15, 2013 and subsequently emerged on September 19, 2014 with all liabilities settled and the corporate shell as its only asset. The September 19, 2014 date will be 'fresh start" date used to reset the financial statements in subsequent filings. Any business description below is of the operating results reported in this filing which no longer apply to our Company.

 

Operating Results

 

Years Ended September 30, 2013 and 2012

 

Results From Operations

 

Revenues. Product sales generated revenues of $7,787 for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013. We had $5,714 in revenue for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012.  

 

Operating Expenses.   The decrease of approximately $963,000 in such expenses for the year ended September 30, 2013 compared to the year ended September 30, 2012. Professional fees decreased by approximately $72,000 and compensation expense decreased by approximately $641,000 were the major components of the decreases.

 

  Income from Forgiveness of Accounts Payable. The income in this category resulted from the settlement of amounts owed to several vendors and note holders. The figure for fiscal year ended September 30, 2013 represents a decrease of approximately $228,000 over the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012.

 

Interest Expense.  The decrease of approximately $37,000 for the year ended September 30, 2013 compared to the year ended September 30, 2012. There were no interest expense in the 2013 quarter which was in bankruptcy proceedings.

 

Income Tax Provision .  No provision for income tax benefit from net operating losses has been made for the year ended September 30, 2013 and 2012 as we have fully reserved the asset until realization is more likely than not.

 

Net Loss.    The decrease in the net loss of approximately $843,000 for the year ended September 30, 2013 compared to the year ended September 30, 2012 is explained in the foregoing discussions of the various expense categories.

 

Basic and Diluted Loss per Share.  The change in basic and diluted net loss per share for the year ended September 30, 2013 reflects the change in net loss position discussed above during the year ended September 30, 2013.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Current and Expected Liquidity

 

Cash as of September 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012 totaled $618 and $13,386, respectively.  Subsequent to the period end of these statements and before the issuance of this report the company filed bankruptcy under chapter 7 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. Our liabilities exceeded our assets by approximately $1,900,000 and our corporate shell which trades on the OTC market was sold unencumbered. New management has arranged for the filing of our 10K and 10Q reports through small working capital loans until a new direction can be determined for the company.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. Preparation of the statements in accordance with these principles requires that we make estimates, using available data and our judgment, for such things as valuing assets, accruing liabilities and estimating expenses. The following is a discussion of the most critical estimates that we must make when preparing our financial statements.

 

Revenue Recognition.   The Company applies paragraph 605-10-S99-1 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for revenue recognition. The Company recognizes revenue when it is realized or realizable and earned. The Company considers revenue realized or realizable and earned when all of the following criteria are met: (i) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (ii) the sales price is fixed or determinable, (iii) collectability is reasonably assured and (iv) goods have been shipped and/or services rendered.

 

Income Taxes and Deferred Income Taxes.   We use the asset and liability approach for financial accounting and reporting for income taxes. Deferred income taxes are provided for temporary differences in the bases of assets and liabilities as reported for financial statement purposes and income tax purposes and for the future use of net operating losses. We have recorded a valuation allowance against our net deferred income tax asset. The valuation allowance reduces deferred income tax assets to an amount that represents management’s best estimate of the amount of such deferred income tax assets that more likely than not will be realized.

 

Income from forgiveness of payables and Debt.   Income from the forgiveness of payables and/or debt is recognized when all of the conditions associated with the forgiveness have been met.

 

Property and Equipment.   Property and equipment is stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is recorded using the straight-line method over the following useful lives:

     
Computer equipment   3-10 years
Furniture and fixtures   3-7 years
Test equipment   5-7 years
Software   3 years

 

Repairs and maintenance costs are charged to operations as incurred. Betterments or renewals are capitalized as incurred.

 

We review long lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset with future undiscounted net cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets.

 

Patents.   It is our policy to capitalize costs associated with securing a patent. Costs consist of legal and filing fees. Once a patent is issued, it is amortized on a straight-line basis over its estimated useful life. For purposes of the preparation of the audited, consolidated financial statements found elsewhere in this report, we have recorded amortization expense associated with the patents based on an eight year useful life.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

We evaluate all accounting pronouncements issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board during each reporting period to assess their impact on and applicability to our accounting practices and our financial reporting and disclosures.

 

We have reviewed all accounting pronouncements issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board since we last issued financial statements and have determined that none of them have a material effect on the consolidated financial statements.

ITEM 9A  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

    

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we have evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our “disclosure controls and procedures,” as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) or Rule 15d-15(e) promulgated under the Exchange Act as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of the end of the period covered by this report to provide reasonable assurance that material information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms.

 

  

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f) or Rule 15d-15(f). Our management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on the framework in Internal Control — Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. Based on this evaluation, our management concluded that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of September 30, 2013 because we lack effective monitoring of financial controls and lack segregation of duties in financial reporting due to the small size of our financial staff (1 person).

 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our independent registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our independent registered public accounting firm pursuant to rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit the company to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

During the year ended September 30, 2013, was placed under the supervision of a trustee after it filed for bankruptcy protection. All transactions and activity must be court approved.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of
Ecology Coatings, Inc

 

We have audited the accompanying balance sheet of Ecology Coatings, Inc. as of September 30, 2013 and 2012 and the related consolidated statements of operations, changes in stockholders’ deficit and cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

We conducted our audit 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 consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit 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 Ecology Coatings, Inc. as of September 30, 2013 and 2012, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that Ecology Coatings, Inc. will continue as a going concern. As more fully described in Note 9, the Company had an accumulated deficit at September 30, 2013, a net loss and net cash used in operating activities for the fiscal year then ended. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regards to these matters are also described in Note 9. The financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

SEPTEMBER 30, 2013 AND SEPTEMBER 30, 2012

 

 

Note 1 — Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Description of the Company.   We were originally incorporated on March 12, 1990 in California (“Ecology-CA”).  Our current entity was incorporated in Nevada on February 6, 2002 as OCIS Corp. (“OCIS”).  OCIS completed a merger with Ecology-CA on July 26, 2007 (the “Merger”). In the Merger, OCIS changed its name from OCIS Corporation to Ecology Coatings, Inc.  The Company filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection on May 15, 2013 and subsequently emerged on September 19, 2014 with all liabilities settled and the corporate shell as its only unencumbered asset. The September 19, 2014 date will be 'fresh start" date used to reset the financial statements in subsequent filings. Any business description below is of the operating results reported in this filing which no longer apply to our Company.

 

Reclassifications.   Reclassifications have been made to the prior year financial statements to conform with the current year presentation.

 

Basis of Preparation. The financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America and are presented in US dollars.

     

Principles of Consolidation.   The consolidated financial statements include all of our accounts and the accounts of our wholly owned subsidiary Ecology-CA.  All significant intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

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

 

Revenue Recognition.   The Company applies paragraph 605-10-S99-1 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for revenue recognition. The Company recognizes revenue when it is realized or realizable and earned. The Company considers revenue realized or realizable and earned when all of the following criteria are met: (i) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (ii) the sales price is fixed or determinable, (iii) collectability is reasonably assured and (iv) goods have been shipped and/or services rendered.

 

Loss Per Share. Basic loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period.  Diluted loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock and potentially dilutive securities outstanding during the period.  Potentially dilutive shares consist of the incremental common shares issuable upon the exercise of stock options and warrants and the conversion of convertible debt and convertible preferred stock. Potentially dilutive shares are excluded from the weighted average number of shares if their effect is anti-dilutive.  None of the stock options or warrants outstanding or stock associated with the convertible debt or with the convertible preferred shares during each of the periods presented was included in the computation of diluted loss per share as they were anti-dilutive.  

 

     Property and Equipment.   Property and equipment is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation.  Depreciation is recorded using the straight-line method over the following useful lives:

 

Computer equipment 3-10 years
Furniture and fixtures 3-7 years
Test equipment 5-7 years
Signs 7 years
Software 3 years
Marketing and Promotional Video 3 years

 

Repairs and maintenance costs are charged to operations as incurred. Betterments or renewals are capitalized as incurred.

 

Patents.   It is our policy to capitalize costs associated with securing a patent.  Costs consist of legal and filing fees.  Once a patent is issued, it will be amortized on a straight-line basis over its estimated useful life.  

 

        Long-Lived Assets. We review long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.  Recoverability of assets to be held and used is

 

18

 

 
 

  

measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to the undiscounted future net cash flows expected to be generated by the asset.  If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets.

 

Stock-Based Compensation.   Employee and director stock-based compensation expense is measured utilizing the fair-value method with expense charged to earnings over the vesting period on a straight-line basis.

 

We account for stock options granted to non-employees under the fair-value method with stock-based compensation expense being charged to earnings on the earlier of the date services are performed or a performance commitment exists.

 

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

We have reviewed all Accounting Standards Updates issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board since we last issued financial statements and have determined none of them would have a material effect on the consolidated financial statements upon adoption.

 

Note 2Concentrations

 

There were no material concentrations of revenues or risk during the year ending September 30, 2013.

 

 

  Note 3 — Related Party Transactions

Accrued interest on all notes was $102,026 and $71,429 as of September 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively.  

 

Effective May 1, 2012, we entered into a lease with J.M. Land Co. for office space for our headquarters. J.M. Land Co. is an entity owned by James Juliano, our Chairman. We pay monthly rent of $1,000, and the gas and electric utilities which have historically averaged approximately $1,000 per month.   See also Note 5—Commitments and Contingencies—Lease Agreements.

 

On January 2, 2012, we entered into a Sale and Leaseback Agreement with J.M. Land Co. where we raised cash by selling and leasing back our laboratory and computer equipment.  Our balance sheet reflected a liability of $4,396 as of September 30, 2013.

 

On June 12, 2012, we issued a note for $30,000 to Omega Development Corporation, an entity owned by James Juliano. The note bears interest at 5% per annum, is unsecured, and matures on September, 12, 2012. Accrued interest of $1,286 was owed as of September 30, 2013.

On August 15, 2012, we issued a promissory note to Joe Nirta in the principal amount of $100,000 bearing interest at 5% per annum. The note is due in full on November 16, 2012. The note is convertible into shares of our common stock on terms mutually agreed upon by the parties.

Note 4 — Notes Payable

 

We have the following notes as of September 30 2013:

 

Both of the notes payable in the foregoing table were in default as of September 30, 2011.  A judgment of $604,330 was entered against us on December 30, 2011 in a lawsuit brought by Mr. Shaheen which had the effect of converting the notes into the judgment. The judgment included amounts for principal, interest and attorney’s fees. Because the notes were converted into a judgment, they are no longer in default and the amount of the judgment is reflected on the September 30, 2013 balance sheet as “Judgment Payable”.  Accrued interest of $3,027 was owing on the judgment as of June 20, 2012.

 

 Note 5 — Commitments and Contingencies

 

 

Contingencies.

 

All contingencies have been settled through our bankruptcy petition in September 2014 subsequent to this financial reporting period.

 

Lease Commitments.

 

None.

 

Note 6 — Equity

 

 There were no shares issued during this fiscal quarter

 

Note 7 — Stock Options

 

There were no stock options issued during this fiscal quarter. As part of our bankruptcy agreement approved on September 19, 2014 all common conversion rights of any kind including the equity compensation plan without limitation , warrants, options and convertible notes were cancelled and extinguished.

 

 

Note 8 -- Income Taxes

 

As of September 30, 2013, the Company had approximately $5,761,879 in net operating loss carry forwards for federal income tax purposes which expire between 2014 and 2029.  Generally, these can be carried forward and applied against future taxable income at the tax rate applicable at that time. We are currently using a 35% effective tax rate for our projected available net operating loss carry-forward. However, as a result of potential stock offerings and stock issuance in connection with potential acquisitions, as well as the possibility of the Company not realizing its business plan objectives and having future taxable income to offset, the Company’s use of these NOLs may be limited under the provisions of Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.  

 

Components of deferred tax assets and (liabilities) are as follows:

 

  2013   2012
Net operating loss carry forwards valuation available $ 5,761,879   $ 5,535,327
           
Valuation Allowances   (2,016,658)     (1,937,364)
Deferred Tax Asset   2,016,658     1,937,364
 Net Deferred Tax Asset  $  -0-    $  -0-

 

 

In accordance with FASB ASC 740 “Income Taxes”, valuation allowances are provided against deferred tax assets, if based on the weight of available evidence, some or all of the deferred tax assets may or will not be realized. The Company has evaluated its ability to realize some or all of the deferred tax assets on its balance sheet for the coming year and has established a valuation allowance in the amount of S2,016,658 at September 30, 2013 and $1,937,364 at September 30, 2012. During the years ended September 30, 2013 and 2012 the company did not utilize any of its NOL.

Note 9 – Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.  For the years ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, we incurred net losses.  We had working capital deficits and negative cash flows. On May 15, 2013 with no other options, the Company filed under chapter 7 for bankruptcy protection. Chapter 7 allowed the Company's corporate shell to subsequently emerge as its only asset on September 19, 2014 with all liabilities settled. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should we be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

 

Note 10 — Subsequent Events

 

We evaluated subsequent events for potential recognition and/or disclosure subsequent to the date of the balance sheet. The following was noted for disclosure:

 

The Company filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy protection with the United States Bankruptcy court on May 15, 2013. On September 10, 2014 the company settled all debts in excess of assets and the corporate shell as the only unencumbered asset.
