Forward-Looking Statements

 

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

 

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

 

Overview

 

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

 

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

  

The Registrant has recently determined, through its recently established, wholly-owned new Israeli subsidiary, Bengio Urban Renewals Ltd to focus its limited resources in the area of real estate development, particularly focusing on the urban renewal market in Israel. We believe, based upon the current real estate market in Israel, that urban renewal projects present an opportunity for us to generate revenues and profits, which we have never experienced since our inception.  The basis for our belief is that in several major Israeli cities, there is virtually no more room to grow. As a result, several municipal governments have allowed older buildings to be renovated, thereby giving their respective cities the opportunity to develop new apartments to be added to or replacing existing buildings. 

 

Additionally, municipalities have express their concern that many buildings constructed before 1980 will be unable to withstand earthquakes. In Israel, very few apartment buildings are owned by a single person or entity and since the majority of apartments within buildings are privately owned, the burden to renovate buildings in order to render them safer in the event of a major earthquake primarily falls on the the multiple owners of various apartment buildings and complexes.

“Tama 38” is an Israeli national zoning plan whereby a contractor assumes the responsibility of renovating an apartment building. In exchange for covering all costs of renovations, securing building permits and paying requisite taxes, the contractor has is granted the right to build additional floors to the existing building and sell the apartments built on these floors. 

  

The apartment owners benefit by receiving a modernized building, strengthened against earthquakes, as well as the additional apartments added to their buildings. In some cases balconies, storage rooms, parking spaces and elevators may be added as well, further enhancing the building’s value.

 

“Pinui Binui” projects are defined as development where the residents of apartments are temporarily evacuated so that the buildings may be demolished and rebuilt.  The tenants then return to new apartments in the newly finished and renovated building.  The contractor pays all costs for demolition, construction, relocating apartment owners and renting their temporary homes during construction.  In exchange, the contractor adds new apartments in the building which are sold to generate profit.

  

As with “Tama 38,” the value of the apartments in the building is increased thereby benefitting the owners and the tenants return to a new, often larger and safer apartment in a building often with more amenities.

 

Our management believes that this convergence of several current market factors should potentially provide an excellent opportunity for the Registrant and its shareholders. Nevertheless, there can be no assurance that we will be successful in our new endeavors or that we will have the necessary capital to fulfill our new business plan.

 

Competition

 

There are several Companies in Israel engaged in TAMA 38 however , the Company will continue to be at a significant competitor vis-a-vis the Company's competitors.

 

Regulation and Taxation

 

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

  

Employees

 

We are a development stage company and currently have no full time employees. All functions including development, strategy, negotiations and administration are currently being provided by our executive officer, who is also our director, on a voluntary basis.

Overview

 

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

 

Plan of Operation

 

The Registrant has recently determined, through its recently established, wholly-owned new Israeli subsidiary, Bengio Urban Renewals Ltd to focus its limited resources in the area of real estate development, particularly focusing on the urban renewal market in Israel. We believe, based upon the current real estate market in Israel, that urban renewal projects present an opportunity for us to generate revenues and profits, which we have never experienced since our inception.  The basis for our belief is that in several major Israeli cities, there is virtually no more room to grow.

Results of Operations

 

For the years ended July 31, 2015 and July 31, 2014

 

Revenues

 

The Company did not generate any revenues during the years ended July 31, 2015 and July 31, 2014.

 

 5 

 

 

Total operating expenses

 

During the year ended July 31, 2015, total operating expenses were $57,418, which consisted of professional fees , general and administrative expenses and . During the year ended July 31, 2014, total operating expenses were $39,733, which consisted of professional fees , general and administrative expenses and consulting fees.

 

Net loss

 

During the year ended July 31, 2015 and July 31 2014 , the Company had a net loss of $63,411 and $48,651 respectively ..

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of July 31, 2015, the Company had a cash balance of $215.

 

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

 

Going Concern Consideration

 

The Company had no revenues and incurred a net loss of $63,411 for the year ended July 31, 2015 and a net loss of $48,651 for the year ended July 31, 2014. These factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on our ability to raise additional capital. Our financial statements do not include any adjustments that may be necessary if we are unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

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

 

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

REPORT OF REGISTERED INDEPENDENT AUDITORS

 

 

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders

of Darkstar Ventures Inc.:

 

We have audited the accompanying balance sheet of Darkstar Ventures Inc. (a Nevada corporation) as of July 31, 2015 and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the year then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.

 

We conducted our audit in accordance with standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States of America). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit 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 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 audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Darkstar Ventures Inc. as of July 31, 2015 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Company has not established any source of revenue to cover its operating costs. As such, it has incurred an operating loss since inception. Further, as of July 31, 2015, the cash resources of the Company were insufficient to meet its planned business objectives. These and other factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plan regarding these matters is also described in Note 2 to the financial statements. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

DARKSTAR VENTURES, INC. 

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

NOTE 1 -  Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Organization

 

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

 

The Company established a wholly-owned subsidiary in Israel, Bengio Urban Renewals Ltd., to focus its limited resources in the area of real estate development, particularly focusing on the urban renewal market in Israel.

 

The Company’s activities are subject to significant risks and uncertainties, including failing to secure additional funding to operationalize the Company’s current business plan. 

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated upon consolidation.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

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

 

Revenue Recognition

 

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

 

Advertising Costs

 

Advertising costs will be charged to operations when incurred. The Company did not incur any advertising costs during the years ended July 31, 2015 and 2014.

 

Income Taxes 

 

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

   

Loss Per Share

 

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

 

  F-7 

 

  

Accounting Estimates

 

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

 

Fair Value Measurements

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

  

The Company's financial instruments include cash and equivalents, accounts payable and notes payable.

 

The carrying amounts of cash and equivalents, accounts payable and notes payable approximate fair value because of the short maturity of these instruments.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

On June 10, 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued a new accounting standard that reduces some of the disclosure and reporting requirements for development stage entities. The change was effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2014. As of such date, among other things, development stage entities are no longer required to report inception-to date information.

 

NOTE 2 - Going Concern

 

The Company is a development stage company and has not commenced planned principal operations. The Company had a an accumulated deficit of $240,265 as of July 31, 2015. In addition, the Company had a working capital deficiency of $204,615 at July 31, 2015. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

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

 

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

NOTE 3 -  Note Payable

 

Note payable, First Line Capital, LLC, bears interest at 8% per annum and wasdue March 31, 2015. The note allowedthe Company to borrow any amount in increments of up to $50,000. Accrued interest on this note included in Accounts Payable was $13,793 as of July 31, 2014. 

 

On June 11, 2015, an officer and shareholder of the Company purchased all of our outstanding indebtedness from First Line Capital, LLC. 

 

NOTE 4 -  Commitments and Contingencies

 

On September 1, 2011 the Company entered into a one-year consulting agreement with First Line Capital, LLC (“First Line”) under which First Line will provide certain business and corporate development services to the Company for an annual consulting fee of $10,000 payable on each August 31 during the term of the agreement beginning on August 31, 2012. The agreement will automatically renew for successive one-year terms unless terminated by either party at least 10 days prior to the end of the then current term. As of July 31, 2014 accrued consulting fees included in Accounts Payable amounted to $29,167 .The note was terminated in June 2015.

 

NOTE 5 -  Related Party Transactions

 

As of July 31, 2015, loans from a stockholder amounted to $203,681 and represent working capital advances. The loans are unsecured, non-interest bearing, and due on demand.

 

NOTE 6 -  Income Taxes

 

At July 31, 2015 the Company had available net-operating loss carryforwards for Federal tax purposes of approximately $235,000, which may be applied against future taxable income, if any, through 2035. Certain significant changes in ownership of the Company may restrict the future utilization of these tax loss carryforwards.

 

At July 31, 2015 the Company had a deferred tax asset of approximately $80,000 representing the benefit of its net operating loss carryforwards. The Company has not recognized the tax benefit because realization of the tax benefit is uncertain and thus a valuation allowance has been fully provided against the deferred tax asset. The difference between the Federal Statutory Rate of 34% and the Company’s effective tax rate of 0% is due to an increase in the valuation allowance of approximately $20,000 and $16,000 for the years ended July 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

 

The Company’s subsidiary has estimated total available carryforward operating tax losses for Israeli income tax purposes of approximately $5,000 as of July 31, 2015, which may be carryforward to offset against future income for an indefinite period of time.

  

NOTE 7 -  Preferred Stock

 

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

Item 9. Changes in and Disagreements With Accountants on Accounting and Financial Disclosure.

 

There were no disagreements with accountants on accounting and financial disclosure of a type described in Item 304 (a)(1)(iv) or any reportable event as described in Item 304 (a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

 

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures

 

EVALUATION OF DISCLOSURE CONTROLS

 

Our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, after evaluating the effectiveness of the Company’s “disclosure controls and procedures” (as defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (Exchange Act) Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e)) as of July 31, 2015, the end of the period covered by this annual report, has concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective such that the information required to be disclosed by us in reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is (i) recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms and (ii) accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding disclosure.

 

MANAGEMENT’S REPORT ON INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING

 

Management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. As defined in Rules 13a-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, internal control over financial reporting is a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the Company’s principal executive, principal operating and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, and effected by the Company’s board of directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

The Company’s internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that (1) pertain to the maintenance of records, that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the Company’s assets; (2) provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the Company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of the Company’s management and directors; and (3) provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

Our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting at July 31, 2014. In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control—Integrated Framework. Based on that assessment under those criteria, management has determined that, as of July 31, 2015, our internal control over financial reporting was effective.

 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management's report was not subject to attestation by the Company's registered public accounting firm pursuant to the exemption provided to issuers that are not “large accelerated filers” nor “accelerated filers” under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

 

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during our last fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Item 10. Directors, Executive Officers and Corporate Governance.

 

Directors and Executive Officers

 

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

   51   Chairman, President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and Director

 

On May 14 2015 Chizkyau Lapin resigned as Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer and Accounting Officer and was replaced by Avraham Bengio . Mr Bengio studies engineering in the High School of Technology in Jerusalem . From 1995 until present he is the CEO ( also founder ) of a company in Israel YSVA MAKOR CHAYIM Investments LTD in the business of Land and Building investments and development .

 

Each director of the Company serves for a term of one year or until the successor is elected at the Company's annual stockholders’ meeting and is qualified, subject to removal by the Company's stockholders. Each officer serves, at the pleasure of the board of directors, for a term of one year and until the successor is elected at the annual meeting of the board of directors.

 

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

 

Code of Ethics; Financial Expert

 

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

 

Potential Conflicts of Interest

 

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

 

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

 

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires executive officers and directors of the Company and persons who own more than 10% of a registered class of the Company's equity securities to file reports of ownership and changes in their ownership with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and forward copies of such filings to the Company. All of our executive officers and directors have complied with the Section 16(a) filing requirements.

Involvement in Certain Legal Proceedings

Item 12. Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management and Related Stockholder Matters.

 

The following table lists, as of October 26, 2015, the number of shares of common stock of our Company that are beneficially owned by (i) each person or entity known to our Company to be the beneficial owner of more than 5% of the outstanding common stock; (ii) each executive officer and director of our Company; and (iii) all executive officers and directors as a group. Information relating to beneficial ownership of common stock by our principal shareholders and management is based upon information furnished by each person using “beneficial ownership” concepts under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Under these rules, a person is deemed to be a beneficial owner of a security if that person has or shares voting power, which includes the power to vote or direct the voting of the security, or investment power, which includes the power to vote or direct the voting of the security. The person is also deemed to be a beneficial owner of any security of which that person has a right to acquire beneficial ownership within 60 days. Under the Securities and Exchange Commission rules, more than one person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of the same securities, and a person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of securities as to which he or she may not have any pecuniary beneficial interest. Except as noted below, each person has sole voting and investment power.

 

The percentages below are calculated based on 107,145,000 shares of our common stock issued and outstanding as of October 26, 2015. We do not have any outstanding options, warrants or other securities exercisable for or convertible into shares of our common stock.

  

Name of Beneficial Owner  Amount and Nature of Beneficial Ownership  Percent of Class
Avraham Bengio   54,645,000    51%
           
Directors and officers as a group (1 person)   54,645,000    51%

 

 10 

 

 

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

 

As of July 31, 2015, loans from a stockholder amounted to $203,681 and represent working capital advances. The loans are unsecured, non-interest bearing, and due on demand.

 

Director Independence

 

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

 

Item 14. Principal Accounting Fees and Services.

 

Our principal independent accountants are Weinberg and Bear LLC. The pre-approved fees billed to the Company are set forth below:

 

   Fiscal Year Ended
July 31, 2015
  Fiscal Year Ended
July 31, 2014
Audit Fees  $14,000   $14,000 
Audit Related Fees  $0   $0 
Tax Fees  $0   $0 
All Other Fees  $0   $0 

  

As of July 31, 2015, the Company did not have a formal documented pre-approval policy for the fees of the principal accountant. The Company does not have an audit committee. The percentage of hours expended on the principal accountant's engagement to audit our financial statements for the most recent fiscal year that were attributed to work performed by persons other than the principal accountant's full-time, permanent employees was 0%.
