ITEM 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
This annual report contains forward-looking statements. These statements relate to future events or our future financial performance. These statements often can be identified by the use of terms such as "may," "will," "expect," "believe," "anticipate," "estimate," "approximate" or "continue," or the negative thereof. We intend that such forward-looking statements be subject to the safe harbors for such statements. We wish to caution readers not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date made. Any forward-looking statements represent management's best judgment as to what may occur in the future. However, forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and important factors beyond our control that could cause actual results and events to differ materially from historical results of operations and events and those presently anticipated or projected. We disclaim any obligation subsequently to revise any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances after the date of such statement or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events.
As used in this annual report, the terms "we", "us", "our", "the Company", mean ALBERO, CORP., unless otherwise indicated.
All dollar amounts refer to US dollars unless otherwise indicated.
Albero, Corp. was incorporated in the State of Nevada on November 19, 2013 and established a fiscal year end of October 31. We do not have revenues, have minimal assets and have incurred losses since inception. We are a development-stage company formed to commence operations in the horse breeding business. We have recently started our operation. As of today, we have developed our business plan, signed the Pasture Lease Agreement dated January 26, 2015 and purchased a mare for $3,750.
We plan to purchase brood mares that demonstrated good results at show jumping competitions or triathlons. We will purchase brood mares with good breeding record that includes famous world producers whose offspring already demonstrates good results in large-scale competitions. For mating, we will use the world best studhorses that competed and compete in large-scale world competitions and that already have offspring that already compete and take high places in international competitions. Further, the company will handle stockbreeding raising elite offspring for sport purposes. We will purchase a semen and inoculate it into our brood mares. For mating, we will take our horses to breeding farms. We plan to lease grazing land where our horses will live. We will keep foals until they are 6-7 months old and then sell them by auction. The foals are sold for, at least, $5,000 or higher depending on their breeding record, exterior data as well as their movement. The price can reach 100 thousand and higher. The amount of time that we expect to elapse between identification and purchase of a brood mare and sale of a viable foal is 1.5-2 years.
We plan also to buy old mares, 20 years old and older. The price for such horses starts from $2,500. As of today we have purchased one old mare for $3,750. Its breed is Irish Sport Horse and its age is 20-year-old. Our first foal was born in June 2015; however, it did not survive. The horse didn't feel well after giving birth and we decided to cover her earlier next year. Mr. Berezhnyy is undertaking the day to day care of the companys horse. The horse grazes every day on the leased filed and doesnt need special care. The natural diet of the horse is grass. In addition to the grass, Mr. Berezhnyy provides horse feeds. From December to March, our horse needs haylage. During this period, Mr. Berezhnyy, give one big bale of haylage every three weeks. Also, Mr. Berezhnyy gives necessary medicine to the horse every three months. In addition, he cleans the hoofs every three months. There is no any arrangements have been made to care for the animal when Mr. Berezhnyy is absent. Veterinarian services is needed in the case of illness only. Andriy Berezhnyy, our sole officer and director has broad knowledge and experience in the equine business. All his life was related to horses. Because he works at the race stable, he knows many horse dealers. He assists to buy and sell horses at the different auctions, therefore he is very familiar with the auction process. He has experience breeding horses as he used to work at the stud farm before his current job at Ferguson Racing Company.
We intend to offer our young horses to various horse dealers that distribute horses to Europe and North America. Our Sole officer and director has worked for many years and has broad connections in the equine industry and personally know many horse dealers. He will offer our horses to them. We plan to sell our horses at local, national and international horse auctions. We will attend action with our horses that are held every week in Northern Ireland and Ireland, many of which are international auctions. We plan also to advertise them at different newspapers and web sites and sell directly to the public.
Our sole officer and director, Andriy Berezhnyy, will be responsible for marketing of our company and our horses. We intend to use marketing strategies, such as web and newspaper advertisements. We will ask our satisfied customers for referrals. We also plan to attend shows and exhibitions in horse industry. We will promote our product through word of mouth. We intend to market our horses in England, Germany, France, Netherlands and USA. We plan to develop a website to market, display and sell our trained horses. We believe that one of the most powerful aspects of online marketing is the ability to target our chosen group with a high degree of accuracy and cost effective way. We will use many online marketing tools to direct traffic to our website and identify potential customers. As of the date of this prospectus we have not yet identified or registered any domain names for our website. To accomplish this, we plan to contract an independent web designing company. We intend to use internet promotion tools on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to advertise our company and create links to our website. To enhance advertising of our services we plan to keep improving and developing our website to make it as user friendly as possible. We believe that many horses are sold by means of online marketing techniques therefore we intend to use these techniques in our marketing campaign.
We believe that direct marketing is very important tool of our marking campaign. Our sole officer and director permanently attends competitions and horse auctions where he meets many horse dealers, therefore he has a data base of potential customers and he will contact them to offer our horses. We also believe that online marketing techniques are very important as many horses are sold through websites, where potential customers can obtain preliminary information and pictures before contacting the owner. With the expansion of digital technology and tools, direct marketing is increasingly taking place through online channels. Most online advertising is delivered to a focused group of customers and has a trackable response. Therefore, online marketing allows us to target our chosen group with a high degree of accuracy. Our ads will be viewed by people searching horses or reading articles about horses.
The level of competition in the horse breeding business is extremely high. We need knowledge, riding and competition experience and broad connections to enter into the horse breeding business. We will be in a market where we compete with many domestic and international companies offering similar services. We will be in direct competition with them. Many of these companies may have a greater, more established customer base than us. Also, many of these companies will be able to afford to offer young horses with better characteristics than us which may cause us to lose business. We foresee to continue to face challenges from new market entrants. We may be unable to continue to compete effectively with these existing or new competitors, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations.
Albero, Corp. has not yet entered the market and has no market penetration to date. Once we have entered the market, we will be one of many participants in the horse breeding business. Many established, yet well financed entities are currently active in the horse industry. Nearly all Albero, Corp.'s competitors have significantly greater financial resources, technical expertise, and managerial capabilities than Albero, Corp. We are, consequently, at a competitive disadvantage in being able to provide such services and become a successful company in the equine industry. Therefore, Albero, Corp. may not be able to establish itself within the industry at all.
ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS
An investment in our common stock involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully consider the risks described below and the other information in this prospectus before investing in our common stock. If any of the following risks occur, our business, operating results and financial condition could be seriously harmed. The trading price of our common stock, when and if we trade at a later date, could decline due to any of these risks, and you may lose all or part of your investment.
RISKS ASSOCIATED TO OUR BUSINESS
WE HAVE YET TO EARN REVENUE AND OUR ABILITY TO SUSTAIN OUR OPERATIONS IS DEPENDENT ON OUR ABILITY TO RAISE FINANCING AND UPON FUTURE PROFITABLE OPERATIONS IN THE HORSE BREEDING BUSINESS. OUR INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANT HAS EXPRESSED SUBSTANTIAL DOUBT ABOUT OUR ABILITY TO CONTINUE AS A GOING CONCERN.
We have incurred net losses of $41,094 for the year ended October 31, 2015, and have no revenues as of this date. Our future is dependent upon our ability to obtain financing and upon future profitable operations in the horse breeding business. Further, the finances required to fully develop our plan cannot be predicted with any certainty and may exceed any estimates we set forth. These factors raise substantial doubt that we will be able to continue as a going concern. If we experience a shortage of funds we may utilize funds from Andriy Berezhnyy, our sole officer and director, who has informally agreed to advance funds to allow us to pay for general and administrative and professional fees. However, Mr. Berezhnyy has no formal commitment, arrangement or legal obligation to advance or loan funds to the company.
WE HAVE NO POTENTIAL CUSTOMERS FOR OUR HORSES AND WE CANNOT GUARANTEE WE WILL EVER HAVE ANY CUSTOMERS. EVEN IF WE OBTAIN CUSTOMERS, THERE IS NO ASSURANCE THAT WE WILL BE ABLE TO GENERATE A PROFIT. IF THAT OCCURS WE WILL HAVE TO CEASE OPERATIONS.
We have not identified any customers and we cannot guarantee we will ever have any customers for our horses. Even if we obtain new customers, there is no guarantee that we will make a profit. If we are unable to attract enough customers to buy our horses to operate profitably, we will have to suspend or cease operations.
WE FACE STRONG COMPETITION FROM LARGER AND WELL ESTABLISHED COMPANIES, WHICH COULD HARM OUR BUSINESS AND ABILITY TO OPERATE PROFITABLY.
Our industry is competitive. There are many different companies in the horse breeding industry. Even though the industry is highly fragmented, it has a number of large and well established companies, which are profitable and have developed a brand name. Aggressive marketing tactics implemented by our competitors could impact our limited financial resources and adversely affect our ability to compete in our market.
BECAUSE WE ARE SMALL AND DO NOT HAVE MUCH CAPITAL, OUR MARKETING CAMPAIGN MAY NOT BE ENOUGH TO ATTRACT SUFFICIENT NUMBER OF CUSTOMERS TO OPERATE PROFITABLY. IF WE DO NOT MAKE A PROFIT, WE WILL SUSPEND OR CEASE OPERATIONS.
Due to the fact we are small and do not have much capital, we must limit our marketing activities and may not be able to make our product known to potential customers. Because we will be limiting our marketing activities, we may not be able to attract enough customers to operate profitably. If we cannot operate profitably, we may have to suspend or cease operations.
BECAUSE OUR PRINCIPAL ASSETS ARE LOCATED OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES AND ANDRIY BEREZHNYY, OUR SOLE DIRECTOR AND OFFICER, RESIDES OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES, IT MAY BE DIFFICULT FOR AN INVESTOR TO ENFORCE ANY RIGHT BASED ON U.S. FEDERAL SECURITIES LAWS AGAINST US AND/OR MR. BEREZHNYY, OR TO ENFORCE A JUDGMENT RENDERED BY A UNITED STATES COURT AGAINST US OR MR. BEREZHNYY.
Our principal operations and assets are located outside of the United States, and Andriy Berezhnyy, our sole officer and director is a non-resident of the United States. Therefore, it may be difficult to effect service of process on Mr. Berezhnyy in the United States, and it may be difficult to enforce any judgment rendered against Mr. Berezhnyy. As a result, it may be difficult or impossible for an investor to bring an action against Mr. Berezhnyy, in the event that an investor believes that such investors rights have been infringed under the U.S. securities laws, or otherwise. Even if an investor is successful in bringing an action of this kind, the laws of The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland may render that investor unable to enforce a judgment against the assets of Mr. Berezhnyy. As a result, our shareholders may have more difficulty in protecting their interests through actions against our management, director or major shareholder, compared to shareholders of a corporation doing business and whose officers and directors reside within the United States.
Additionally, because of our assets are located outside of the United States, they will be outside of the jurisdiction of United States courts to administer, if we become subject of an insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding. As a result, if we declare bankruptcy or insolvency, our shareholders may not receive the distributions on liquidation that they would otherwise be entitled to if our assets were to be located within the United States under United States bankruptcy laws.
INFECTIOUS DISEASE, INJURY OR DEATH COULD NEGATIVELY AFFECT THE SALE OF OUR HORSES.
Sales of our horses would be materially adversely affected by the outbreak of disease carried by horses, such as equine influenza, tetanus, equine ulcers or equine encephalomyelitis (sleeping sickness), injury or death. The success of our business depends upon the health and well-being of our horses. Horses are susceptible to leg and other injuries, which can adversely affect, shorten or end their useful life or otherwise adversely affect them. No assurance can be given that our horses will not sustain any illness or injury during stabling, training or transport, irrespective of the level of precaution taken. The number of horses we own and sell could decrease as a result of the factors described above and other factors, including those due to retirement for injury or other reasons or voluntary or forced liquidation, such as for the purposes of paying operating or other expenses under circumstances where available working capital is insufficient. Any reduction in the number of horses we own will reduce the opportunity to generate revenues and liquidation proceeds and may materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
BECAUSE WE HAVE ONLY ONE BROOD MARE WHICH IS 20 YEARS OLD, WE MAY NEVER ACHIEVE SUFFICIENT LEVEL OF REVENUES.
As of today we have only one brood mare, which may be past prime breeding age. We need additional funds to buy new mares as the number of horses we own is not enough to generate sufficient revenue. Also, there is substantial risk associated with breeding and caring for an older horse. No assurance can be given that our brood mare can have more foals in the future. These risks may materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.
BECAUSE OUR SOLE OFFICER AND DIRECTOR DEVOTES ONLY LIMITED TIME TO OUR OPERATIONS, OUR OPERATIONS MAY BE SPORADIC WHICH MAY RESULT IN PERIODIC INTERRUPTIONS OR SUSPENSIONS OF OPERATIONS. THIS ACTIVITY COULD PREVENT US FROM ATTRACTING ENOUGH CUSTOMERS AND RESULT IN A LACK OF REVENUES WHICH MAY CAUSE US TO CEASE OPERATIONS.
Andriy Berezhnyy, our sole officer and director devotes only limited time to our operations. He devotes approximately 30 hours a week to our operations. Because our sole office and director devotes only limited time to our operations, our operations may be sporadic and occur at times which are convenient to him. As a result, operations may be periodically interrupted or suspended which could result in a lack of revenues and a possible cessation of operations.
BECAUSE WE DO NOT INTEND TO PURCHASE MEDICAL OR OTHER INSURANCE COVERING OUR HORSES, WE MAY NOT HAVE SUFFICIENT FUNDS TO OBTAIN VETERINARY SERVICES AND MAY BE UNABLE TO PROVIDE REQUIRED VETERINARY CARE.
We do not intend to purchase medical or other insurance covering our horses. If we incur n veterinary services during our operating period, we may not have sufficient funds to obtain those services and may be unable to provide required veterinary care, resulting in a reduction in the ability of use to sell our horses or the need to sell or euthanize one or more horses prior to the end of our operating period, any of which could materially and adversely impact our financial condition and results of operations.
KEY MANAGEMENT PERSONNEL MAY LEAVE THE COMPANY, WHICH COULD ADVERSELY AFFECT THE ABILITY OF THE COMPANY TO CONTINUE OPERATIONS.
The Company is entirely dependent on the efforts of its sole officer and director. The Company does not have an employment agreement in place with its sole officer and director. His departure or the loss of any other key personnel in the future could have a material adverse effect on the business. There is no guarantee that replacement personnel, if any, will help the Company to operate profitably. The Company does not maintain key person life insurance on its sole officer and director

ITEM 6. SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA
ITEM 7. MANAGEMENTS DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULT OF OPERATIONS
The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our financial statements, including the notes thereto, appearing elsewhere in this annual report.

Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to those discussed below and elsewhere in this Annual Report. Our audited financial statements are stated in United States Dollars and are prepared in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
We have incurred recurring losses to date. Our financial statements have been prepared assuming that we will continue as a going concern and, accordingly, do not include adjustments relating to the recoverability and realization of assets and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should we be unable to continue in operation.
We expect we will require additional capital to meet our long term operating requirements. We expect to raise additional capital through, among other things, the sale of equity or debt securities.
Our net loss for the fiscal year ended October 31, 2015 was $41,094 compared to a net loss of $506 during the period from November 19, 2013 (inception) through October 31, 2014. During fiscal year ended October 31, 2015 and during the period from November 19, 2013 (inception) through October 31, 2014, we have not generated any revenue.
During the fiscal year ended October 31, 2015, we incurred expenses of $41,094 compared to $506 incurred during the period from November 19, 2013 (inception) through October 31, 2014.
Liquidity And Capital Resources
As of October 31, 2015 our total assets were $16,586 compared to $4,300 in total assets at October 31, 2014. As of October 31, 2015, our current liabilities were $30,436 compared to $1,806 in current liabilities at October 31, 2014.
As of October 31, 2015, comprised cash of $3,659, prepaid expenses 0f $8,333, prepaid rent of $1,233, security deposit of $300 and $3,061 in fixed assets while as at October 31, 2014 total assets comprised cash of $4,000 and $300 in security deposit. As of October 31, 2015, our current liabilities were $30,436 comprising $30,436 in advances from a Director. As of October 31, 2014, our current liabilities were $1,806 comprising of advances from a Director.
Stockholders deficit was $13,850 as of October 31, 2015, compared to stockholders equity of $2,494 as of October 31, 2014.
The weighted average number of shares outstanding was 3,404,789 for the year ended October 31, 2015 compared to 3,000,000 for the period from November 19, 2013 (inception) through October 31, 2014.
Cash Flows from Operating Activities
We have not generated positive cash flows from operating activities. For the year ended October 31, 2015, net cash flows used in operating activities was $49,971. Net cash flows used in operating activities was $806 for the period from November 19, 2013 (inception) through October 31, 2014.
Cash Flows from Investing Activities
For the year ended October 31, 2015, net cash flows used in investing activities was $3,750.
Cash Flows from Financing Activities
We have financed our operations primarily from either advancements or the issuance of equity and debt instruments. For the year ended October 31, 2015, net cash flows from financing activities was $53,380 received from proceeds from issuance of common stock and advance from director. For the period from November 19, 2013 (inception) through October 31, 2014, net cash flows from financing activities was $4,806 received from proceeds from issuance of common stock and advance from director.
PLAN OF OPERATION AND FUNDING
We expect that working capital requirements will continue to be funded through a combination of our existing funds and further issuances of securities. Our working capital requirements are expected to increase in line with the growth of our business.
Existing working capital, further advances and debt instruments, and anticipated cash flow are expected to be adequate to fund our operations over the next six months. We have no lines of credit or other bank financing arrangements. Generally, we have financed operations to date through the proceeds of the private placement of equity and debt instruments. In connection with our business plan, management anticipates additional increases in operating expenses and capital expenditures relating to: (i) developmental expenses associated with a start-up business and (ii) marketing expenses. We intend to finance these expenses with further issuances of securities, and debt issuances. Thereafter, we expect we will need to raise additional capital and generate revenues to meet long-term operating requirements. Additional issuances of equity or convertible debt securities will result in dilution to our current shareholders. Further, such securities might have rights, preferences or privileges senior to our common stock. Additional financing may not be available upon acceptable terms, or at all. If adequate funds are not available or are not available on acceptable terms, we may not be able to take advantage of prospective new business endeavors or opportunities, which could significantly and materially restrict our business operations.
As of the date of this Annual Report, we do not have any material commitments.
PURCHASE OF SIGNIFICANT EQUIPMENT
We do not intend to purchase any significant equipment during the next twelve months.
OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS
As of the date of this Annual Report, we do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.
The independent auditors' report accompanying our October 31, 2015 and October 31, 2014 financial statements contains an explanatory paragraph expressing substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements have been prepared "assuming that we will continue as a going concern," which contemplates that we will realize our assets and satisfy our liabilities and commitments in the ordinary course of business.

ITEM 8. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTARY DATA
REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM
To the Board of Directors and stockholders of Albero, Corp.
We have audited the accompanying balance sheet of Albero, Corp. (the Company) as of October 31, 2015 and 2014, and the related statements of operations, stockholders equity, and cash flows for the year ended June October 31, 2015 and for the period November 19, 2013 through October 31, 2014. Albero, Corp.s management is responsible for these financial statements. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit.
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our 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 companys 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 financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Albero, Corp. as of October 31, 2015 and 2014 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year ended October 31, 2015 and for the period from November 19, 2013 (Inception) through October 31, 2014 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 3 to the financial statements the Company has suffered net losses and has had negative cash flows from operating activities during the year ended October 31, 2015.These matters raise substantial doubt about the Companys ability to continue as a going concern. Managements plans concerning these matters are also described in Note 3. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of asset carrying amounts or the amount and classification of liabilities that might result should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

Use of Estimates and Assumptions and Critical Accounting Estimates and Assumptions
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 reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date(s) of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period(s).
Critical accounting estimates are estimates for which (a) the nature of the estimate is material due to the levels of subjectivity and judgment necessary to account for highly uncertain matters or the susceptibility of such matters to change and (b) the impact of the estimate on financial condition or operating performance is material. The Companys critical accounting estimates and assumptions affecting the financial statements were as follows:
Assumption as a going concern: Management assumes that the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets, and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business.
Fair value of long-lived assets: Fair value is generally determined using the assets expected future discounted cash flows or market value, if readily determinable. If long-lived assets are determined to be recoverable, but the newly determined remaining estimated useful lives are shorter than originally estimated, the net book values of the long-lived assets are depreciated over the newly determined remaining estimated useful lives. The Company considers the following to be some examples of important indicators that may trigger an impairment review: (i) significant under-performance or losses of assets relative to expected historical or projected future operating results; (ii) significant changes in the manner or use of assets or in the Companys overall strategy with respect to the manner or use of the acquired assets or changes in the Companys overall business strategy; (iii) significant negative industry or economic trends; (iv) increased competitive pressures; (v) a significant decline in the Companys stock price for a sustained period of time; and (vi) regulatory changes. The Company evaluates acquired assets for potential impairment indicators at least annually and more frequently upon the occurrence of such events.
Valuation allowance for deferred tax assets: Management assumes that the realization of the Companys net deferred tax assets resulting from its net operating loss (NOL) carryforwards for Federal income tax purposes that may be offset against future taxable income was not considered more likely than not and accordingly, the potential tax benefits of the net loss carry-forwards are offset by a full valuation allowance. Management made this assumption based on (a) the Company has incurred recurring losses, (b) general economic conditions, and (c) its ability to raise additional funds to support its daily operations by way of a public or private offering, among other factors.
These significant accounting estimates or assumptions bear the risk of change due to the fact that there are uncertainties attached to these estimates or assumptions, and certain estimates or assumptions are difficult to measure or value.
Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various assumptions that are believed to be reasonable in relation to the financial statements taken as a whole under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources.
Management regularly evaluates the key factors and assumptions used to develop the estimates utilizing currently available information, changes in facts and circumstances, historical experience and reasonable assumptions. After such evaluations, if deemed appropriate, those estimates are adjusted accordingly.
Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The Company follows paragraph 825-10-50-10 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for disclosures about fair value of its financial instruments and paragraph 820-10-35-37 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (Paragraph 820-10-35-37) to measure the fair value of its financial instruments. Paragraph 820-10-35-37 establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. To increase consistency and comparability in fair value measurements and related disclosures, Paragraph 820-10-35-37 establishes a fair value hierarchy which prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three (3) broad levels. The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. The three (3) levels of fair value hierarchy defined by Paragraph 820-10-35-37 are described below:
Quoted market prices available in active markets for identical assets or liabilities as of the reporting date.
Pricing inputs other than quoted prices in active markets included in Level 1, which are either directly or indirectly observable as of the reporting date.
Pricing inputs that are generally observable inputs and not corroborated by market data.
Financial assets are considered Level 3 when their fair values are determined using pricing models, discounted cash flow methodologies or similar techniques and at least one significant model assumption or input is unobservable.
The fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs. If the inputs used to measure the financial assets and liabilities fall within more than one level described above, the categorization is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement of the instrument.
The carrying amounts of the Companys financial assets and liabilities, such as cash, prepaid rent, security deposit and accounts payable approximate their fair values because of the short maturity of these instruments.
Transactions involving related parties cannot be presumed to be carried out on an arm's-length basis, as the requisite conditions of competitive, free-market dealings may not exist. Representations about transactions with related parties, if made, shall not imply that the related party transactions were consummated on terms equivalent to those that prevail in arm's-length transactions unless such representations can be substantiated.
Carrying Value, Recoverability and Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
The Company has adopted Section 360-10-35 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for its long-lived assets. Pursuant to ASC Paragraph 360-10-35-17 an impairment loss shall be recognized only if the carrying amount of a long-lived asset (asset group) is not recoverable and exceeds its fair value. The carrying amount of a long-lived asset (asset group) is not recoverable if it exceeds the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use and eventual disposition of the asset (asset group). That assessment shall be based on the carrying amount of the asset (asset group) at the date it is tested for recoverability. An impairment loss shall be measured as the amount by which the carrying amount of a long-lived asset (asset group) exceeds its fair value. Pursuant to ASC Paragraph 360-10-35-20 if an impairment loss is recognized, the adjusted carrying amount of a long-lived asset shall be its new cost basis. For a depreciable long-lived asset, the new cost basis shall be depreciated (amortized) over the remaining useful life of that asset. Restoration of a previously recognized impairment loss is prohibited.
Pursuant to ASC Paragraph 360-10-35-21 the Companys long-lived asset (asset group) is tested for recoverability whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that its carrying amount may not be recoverable. The Company considers the following to be some examples of such events or changes in circumstances that may trigger an impairment review: (a) significant decrease in the market price of a long-lived asset (asset group); (b) A significant adverse change in the extent or manner in which a long-lived asset (asset group) is being used or in its physical condition; (c) A significant adverse change in legal factors or in the business climate that could affect the value of a long-lived asset (asset group), including an adverse action or assessment by a regulator; (d) An accumulation of costs significantly in excess of the amount originally expected for the acquisition or construction of a long-lived asset (asset group); (e) A current-period operating or cash flow loss combined with a history of operating or cash flow losses or a projection or forecast that demonstrates continuing losses associated with the use of a long-lived asset (asset group); and (f) A current expectation that, more likely than not, a long-lived asset (asset group) will be sold or otherwise disposed of significantly before the end of its previously estimated useful life. The Company tests its long-lived assets for potential impairment indicators at least annually and more frequently upon the occurrence of such events.
Pursuant to ASC Paragraphs 360-10-45-4 and 360-10-45-5 an impairment loss recognized for a long-lived asset (asset group) to be held and used shall be included in income from continuing operations before income taxes in the income statement of a business entity. If a subtotal such as income from operations is presented, it shall include the amount of that loss. A gain or loss recognized on the sale of a long-lived asset (disposal group) that is not a component of an entity shall be included in income from continuing operations before income taxes in the income statement of a business entity. If a subtotal such as income from operations is presented, it shall include the amounts of those gains or losses.
The Company considers all highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less at the time of purchase to be cash equivalents.
Property and Equipment
Property and equipment is recorded at cost. Expenditures for major additions and betterments are capitalized. Maintenance and repairs are charged to operations as incurred. Depreciation is computed by the straight-line method (after taking into account their respective estimated residual values) over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets as follows:
Estimated Useful Life (Years)
Brood mare (*)
Pursuant to ASC paragraphs 905-360-25-4 and 905-360-35-1 except for animals with short productive lives classified as inventory under paragraph 905-330-25-3 all of (a) breeding animals, (b) all livestock (which includes cattle, hogs, sheep, and goats), and (c) production animals shall be recognized as fixed assets and depreciated over their estimated useful lives.
Upon sale or retirement, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss is reflected in the statements of operations.
Lease agreements are evaluated to determine whether they are capital leases or operating leases in accordance with paragraph 840-10-25-1 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (Paragraph 840-10-25-1). Pursuant to Paragraph 840-10-25-1 a lessee and a lessor shall consider whether a lease meets any of the following four criteria as part of classifying the lease at its inception under the guidance in the Lessees Subsection of this Section (for the lessee) and the Lessors Subsection of this Section (for the lessor): a. Transfer of ownership. The lease transfers ownership of the property to the lessee by the end of the lease term. This criterion is met in situations in which the lease agreement provides for the transfer of title at or shortly after the end of the lease term in exchange for the payment of a nominal fee, for example, the minimum required by statutory regulation to transfer title. b. Bargain purchase option. The lease contains a bargain purchase option. c. Lease term. The lease term is equal to 75 percent or more of the estimated economic life of the leased property. d. Minimum lease payments. The present value at the beginning of the lease term of the minimum lease payments, excluding that portion of the payments representing executory costs such as insurance, maintenance, and taxes to be paid by the lessor, including any profit thereon, equals or exceeds 90 percent of the excess of the fair value of the leased property to the lessor at lease inception over any related investment tax credit retained by the lessor and expected to be realized by the lessor. In accordance with paragraphs 840-10-25-29 and 840-10-25-30, if at its inception a lease meets any of the four lease classification criteria in Paragraph 840-10-25-1, the lease shall be classified by the lessee as a capital lease; and if none of the four criteria in Paragraph 840-10-25-1 are met, the lease shall be classified by the lessee as an operating lease. Pursuant to Paragraph 840-10-25-31 a lessee shall compute the present value of the minimum lease payments using the lessee's incremental borrowing rate unless both of the following conditions are met, in which circumstance the lessee shall use the implicit rate: a. It is practicable for the lessee to learn the implicit rate computed by the lessor. b. The implicit rate computed by the lessor is less than the lessee's incremental borrowing rate. Capital lease assets are depreciated on a straight line method, over the capital lease assets estimated useful lives consistent with the Companys normal depreciation policy for tangible fixed assets. Interest charges are expensed over the period of the lease in relation to the carrying value of the capital lease obligation.
Operating leases primarily relate to the Companys leases of office and pasture spaces. When the terms of an operating lease include tenant improvement allowances, periods of free rent, rent concessions, and/or rent escalation amounts, the Company establishes a deferred rent liability for the difference between the scheduled rent payment and the straight-line rent expense recognized, which is amortized over the underlying lease term on a straight-line basis as a reduction of rent expense.
The Company follows subtopic 850-10 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for the identification of related parties and disclosure of related party transactions.
Pursuant to Section 850-10-20 the related parties include (a) affiliates of the Company (Affiliate means, with respect to any specified Person, any other Person that, directly or indirectly through one or more intermediaries, controls, is controlled by or is under common control with such Person, as such terms are used in and construed under Rule 405 under the Securities Act); (b) entities for which investments in their equity securities would be required, absent the election of the fair value option under the Fair Value Option Subsection of Section 8251015, to be accounted for by the equity method by the investing entity; (c) trusts for the benefit of employees, such as pension and profit-sharing trusts that are managed by or under the trusteeship of management; (d) principal owners of the Company; (e) management of the Company; (f) other parties with which the Company may deal if one party controls or can significantly influence the management or operating policies of the other to an extent that one of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests; and (g) other parties that can significantly influence the management or operating policies of the transacting parties or that have an ownership interest in one of the transacting parties and can significantly influence the other to an extent that one or more of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests.
The financial statements shall include disclosures of material related party transactions, other than compensation arrangements, expense allowances, and other similar items in the ordinary course of business. However, disclosure of transactions that are eliminated in the preparation of consolidated or combined financial statements is not required in those statements. The disclosures shall include: (a) the nature of the relationship(s) involved; (b) a description of the transactions, including transactions to which no amounts or nominal amounts were ascribed, for each of the periods for which income statements are presented, and such other information deemed necessary to an understanding of the effects of the transactions on the financial statements; (c) the dollar amounts of transactions for each of the periods for which income statements are presented and the effects of any change in the method of establishing the terms from that used in the preceding period; and (d) amounts due from or to related parties as of the date of each balance sheet presented and, if not otherwise apparent, the terms and manner of settlement.
Commitment and Contingencies
The Company follows subtopic 450-20 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification to report accounting for contingencies. Certain conditions may exist as of the date the financial statements are issued, which may result in a loss to the Company but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. The Company assesses such contingent liabilities, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise of judgment. In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against the Company or un-asserted claims that may result in such proceedings, the Company evaluates the perceived merits of any legal proceedings or un-asserted claims as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought therein.
If the assessment of a contingency indicates that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, then the estimated liability would be accrued in the Companys financial statements. If the assessment indicates that a potential material loss contingency is not probable but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, then the nature of the contingent liability, and an estimate of the range of possible losses, if determinable and material, would be disclosed.
Loss contingencies considered remote are generally not disclosed unless they involve guarantees, in which case the guarantees would be disclosed.
The Company follows 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 product has been shipped or the services have been rendered to the customer, (iii) the sales price is fixed or determinable and (iv) collectability is reasonably assured.
Deferred Tax Assets and Income Tax Provision
The Company accounts for income taxes under Section 740-10-30 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined based upon differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance to the extent management concludes it is more likely than not that the assets will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in the statements of operations in the period that includes the enactment date.
The Company adopted section 740-10-25 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (Section 740-10-25). Section 740-10-25 addresses the determination of whether tax benefits claimed or expected to be claimed on a tax return should be recorded in the financial statements. Under Section 740-10-25, the Company may recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position only if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position. The tax benefits recognized in the financial statements from such a position should be measured based on the largest benefit that has a greater than fifty percent (50%) likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement. Section 740-10-25 also provides guidance on de-recognition, classification, interest and penalties on income taxes, accounting in interim periods and requires increased disclosures.
The estimated future tax effects of temporary differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities are reported in the accompanying balance sheets, as well as tax credit carry-backs and carry-forwards. The Company periodically reviews the recoverability of deferred tax assets recorded on its balance sheets and provides valuation allowances as management deems necessary.
Management makes judgments as to the interpretation of the tax laws that might be challenged upon an audit and cause changes to previous estimates of tax liability. In addition, the Company operates within multiple taxing jurisdictions and is subject to audit in these jurisdictions. In managements opinion, adequate provisions for income taxes have been made for all years. If actual taxable income by tax jurisdiction varies from estimates, additional allowances or reversals of reserves may be necessary.
Tax years that remain subject to examination by major tax jurisdictions
The Company discloses tax years that remain subject to examination by major tax jurisdictions pursuant to the ASC Paragraph 740-10-50-15.
Earnings per Share
Earnings per share ("EPS") is the amount of earnings attributable to each share of common stock. For convenience, the term is used to refer to either earnings or loss per share. EPS is computed pursuant to section 260-10-45 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification. Pursuant to ASC Paragraphs 260-10-45-10 through 260-10-45-16 Basic EPS shall be computed by dividing income available to common stockholders (the numerator) by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding (the denominator) during the period. Income available to common stockholders shall be computed by deducting both the dividends declared in the period on preferred stock (whether or not paid) and the dividends accumulated for the period on cumulative preferred stock (whether or not earned) from income from continuing operations (if that amount appears in the income statement) and also from net income. The computation of diluted EPS is similar to the computation of basic EPS except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the dilutive potential common shares had been issued during the period to reflect the potential dilution that could occur from common shares issuable through contingent shares issuance arrangement, stock options or warrants.
Pursuant to ASC Paragraphs 260-10-45-45-21 through 260-10-45-45-23 Diluted EPS shall be based on the most advantageous conversion rate or exercise price from the standpoint of the security holder. The dilutive effect of outstanding call options and warrants (and their equivalents) issued by the reporting entity shall be reflected in diluted EPS by application of the treasury stock method unless the provisions of paragraphs 260-10-45-35 through 45-36 and 260-10-55-8 through 55-11 require that another method be applied. Equivalents of options and warrants include non-vested stock granted to employees, stock purchase contracts, and partially paid stock subscriptions (see paragraph 260105523). Anti-dilutive contracts, such as purchased put options and purchased call options, shall be excluded from diluted EPS. Under the treasury stock method: a. Exercise of options and warrants shall be assumed at the beginning of the period (or at time of issuance, if later) and common shares shall be assumed to be issued. b. The proceeds from exercise shall be assumed to be used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period. (See paragraphs 260-10-45-29 and 260-10-55-4 through 55-5.) c. The incremental shares (the difference between the number of shares assumed issued and the number of shares assumed purchased) shall be included in the denominator of the diluted EPS computation.
There were no contingent shares issuance arrangement, stock options or warrants which were issuable and could have potential dilutive effect to the earnings per share at October 31, 2015.
Cash Flows Reporting
The Company adopted paragraph 230-10-45-24 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for cash flows reporting, classifies cash receipts and payments according to whether they stem from operating, investing, or financing activities and provides definitions of each category, and uses the indirect or reconciliation method (Indirect method) as defined by paragraph 230-10-45-25 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification to report net cash flow from operating activities by adjusting net income to reconcile it to net cash flow from operating activities by removing the effects of (a) all deferrals of past operating cash receipts and payments and all accruals of expected future operating cash receipts and payments and (b) all items that are included in net income that do not affect operating cash receipts and payments. The Company reports the reporting currency equivalent of foreign currency cash flows, using the current exchange rate at the time of the cash flows and the effect of exchange rate changes on cash held in foreign currencies is reported as a separate item in the reconciliation of beginning and ending balances of cash and cash equivalents and separately provides information about investing and financing activities not resulting in cash receipts or payments in the period pursuant to paragraph 830-230-45-1 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification.
The Company follows the guidance in Section 855-10-50 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for the disclosure of subsequent events. The Company will evaluate subsequent events through the date when the financial statements were issued. Pursuant to ASU 2010-09 of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification, the Company as an SEC filer considers its financial statements issued when they are widely distributed to users, such as through filing them on EDGAR.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
In August 2014, the FASB issued the FASB Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-15 Presentation of Financial StatementsGoing Concern (Subtopic 205-40): Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entitys Ability to Continue as a Going Concern (ASU 2014-15).
In connection with preparing financial statements for each annual and interim reporting period, an entitys management should evaluate whether there are conditions or events, considered in the aggregate, that raise substantial doubt about the entitys ability to continue as a going concern within one year after the date that the financial statements are issued (or within one year after the date that the financial statements are available to be issued when applicable). Managements evaluation should be based on relevant conditions and events that are known and reasonably knowable at the date that the financial statements are issued (or at the date that the financial statements are available to be issued when applicable). Substantial doubt about an entitys ability to continue as a going concern exists when relevant conditions and events, considered in the aggregate, indicate that it is probable that the entity will be unable to meet its obligations as they become due within one year after the date that the financial statements are issued (or available to be issued). The term probable is used consistently with its use in Topic 450, Contingencies.
When management identifies conditions or events that raise substantial doubt about an entitys ability to continue as a going concern, management should consider whether its plans that are intended to mitigate those relevant conditions or events will alleviate the substantial doubt. The mitigating effect of managements plans should be considered only to the extent that (1) it is probable that the plans will be effectively implemented and, if so, (2) it is probable that the plans will mitigate the conditions or events that raise substantial doubt about the entitys ability to continue as a going concern.
If conditions or events raise substantial doubt about an entitys ability to continue as a going concern, but the substantial doubt is alleviated as a result of consideration of managements plans, the entity should disclose information that enables users of the financial statements to understand all of the following (or refer to similar information disclosed elsewhere in the footnotes):
Principal conditions or events that raised substantial doubt about the entitys ability to continue as a going concern (before consideration of managements plans)
Managements evaluation of the significance of those conditions or events in relation to the entitys ability to meet its obligations
Managements plans that alleviated substantial doubt about the entitys ability to continue as a going concern.
The amendments in this Update are effective for the annual period ending after December 15, 2016, and for annual periods and interim periods thereafter. Early application is permitted.
In January 2015, the FASB issued the FASB Accounting Standards Update No. 2015-01 Income StatementExtraordinary and Unusual Items (Subtopic 225-20): Simplifying Income Statement Presentation by Eliminating the Concept of Extraordinary Items (ASU 2015-01).
This Update eliminates from GAAP the concept of extraordinary items and the requirements in Subtopic 225-20 for reporting entities to separately classify, present, and disclose extraordinary events and transactions.
The amendments in this Update are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. Early adoption is permitted provided that the guidance is applied from the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption.
Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, when adopted, will have a material effect on the accompanying financial statements.
Note 3 Going Concern
The Company has elected to adopt early application of Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-15, Presentation of Financial StatementsGoing Concern (Subtopic 205-40): Disclosure of Uncertainties about an Entitys Ability to Continue as a Going Concern (ASU 2014-15).
The Companys financial statements have been prepared assuming that it will continue as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets, and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business.
As reflected in the financial statements, the Company had an accumulated deficit at October 31, 2015, a net loss and net cash used in operating activities for the period then ended. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Companys ability to continue as a going concern.
The Company is attempting to further implement its business plan and generate sufficient revenue; however, the Companys cash position may not be sufficient to support the Companys daily operations. Management intends to raise additional funds by way of a private or public offering. While the Company believes in the viability of its strategy to commence operations and generate sufficient revenue and in its ability to raise additional funds, there can be no assurances to that effect. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Companys ability to further implement its business plan and generate sufficient revenue and its ability to raise additional funds by way of a public or private offering.
The financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.
Note 4 Brood Mare
The Company acquired a brood mare on December 4, 2014.
Depreciation expense was $689 and $0 for the reporting period ended October 31, 2015 and 2014, respectively.
Note 5 Related Party Transactions
Related parties with whom the Company had transactions are:
President, Secretary and Treasurer
Advances from a Related Party
From time to time, a related party advances funds to the Company for working capital purpose. Those advances are unsecured, non-interest bearing and due on demand.
The Director of the Company advanced $30,436 for the period from November 19, 2013 (inception) through October 31, 2015, none of which has been repaid.
Note 6 Stockholders' Equity (Deficit)
Upon formation the total number of shares of all classes of stock which the Company is authorized to issue is Seventy-five Million (75,000,000) shares of Common Stock, par value $0.001 per share.
Upon formation the Company sold 3,000,000 shares of common stock to the officer and director of the Company at $0.001 per share, or $3,000 for cash.
In May 2015, the Company issued 825,000 shares of common stock for cash to 29 individuals at $0.03 per share, or $24,750 in aggregate.
Note 7 Commitments and Contingencies
On October 1, 2014, the Company entered into a non-cancelable operating lease for office space on a month to month basis effective upon signing. The Company agrees to pay the landlord during the term of this agreement a monthly office service fee of $300. In connection with entering into the non-cancelable operating lease, the Company paid the landlord one month of monthly office service fee of $300 as security deposit which was included in the current assets of the balance sheet. The Company must give thirty (30) days prior notice to vacate space and there will be no pro-rate for partial month use.
The Company recorded $3,600 in rent expenses for the period ended October 31, 2015.
On January 26, 2015, the Company (the Lessee) entered into a non-cancelable pasture lease with the Lessor to occupy and use a pasture consisting of approximately 5 acres for the purpose of feeding, pasturing and Pasture horses limited to 5 animals in one year to be automatically renewed and extended from year to year, unless terminated in writing by Lessor or Lessee. Lessee will pay the Lessor the yearly cash rental of $1,000 during the term of this Agreement for the use of the Leased Premises. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, this Lease may be terminated at any time by the Lessee, provided, however, that Lessee has given thirty (30) days written notice to the Lessor.
The Company recorded $667 in rent expenses for the period ended October 31, 2015.
Note 8 Subsequent Events
The Company has evaluated all events that occur after the balance sheet date through the date when the financial statements were issued to determine if they must be reported. The Management of the Company determined that there were no reportable subsequent events to be disclosed.
