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.

 

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.

 

On February 16, 2016, the Registrant filed a Preliminary Information Statement on Schedule 14C for the purpose of increasing its authorized capital stock, disclosing as its reason "to facilitate our ability to raise capital in furtherance of our business plan…” We also disclosed at that time that "we have no present plans, nor have we entered into any agreements or understandings, that may require the issuance of any of the newly-authorized Common Stock....our Board of Directors and Majority Consenting Stockholder have determined that it is in the best interests of the Company and all our stockholders to have available authorized but unissued shares . . .”

 

Since February 2016, the Registrant’s Board of Directors authorized the establishment of a new  wholly-owned Israeli subsidiary, Bengio Urban Renewals Ltd (“Bengio Urban”) to focus its limited resources in the area of real estate development, particularly focusing on the urban renewal market in Israel. To that end, the Registrant raised $150,000 from the sale of restricted shares to investors to fund the new real estate development operations of Bengio Urban, which has recently hired employees and has signed contracts with the current tenants of three buildings who have agreed to vacate the buildings so that they can be redeveloped into modern state of the art new residential buildings .  Based upon the foregoing, the Registrant no longer deems itself to be a shell company.

We believe, based upon the current real estate market in Israel, that urban renewal projects present an excellent opportunity for us to generate revenues and profits which we expect to realize during our 2017 fiscal year. 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.

  

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

 

The Company currently has three employees.

Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the Company’s financial statements, which are included elsewhere in this Form 10-K.

  

Overview

 

We were 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. 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.

  

Since February 2016, the Registrant’s Board of Directors authorized the establishment of a new  wholly-owned Israeli subsidiary, Bengio Urban Renewals Ltd (“Bengio Urban”) to focus its limited resources in the area of real estate development, particularly focusing on the urban renewal market in Israel.

Results of Operations

 

For the years ended July 31, 2016 and July 31, 2015

 

Revenues

 

The Company did not generate any revenues during the years ended July 31, 2016 and July 31, 2015

  

Total operating expenses

 

During the year ended July 31, 2016, total operating expenses were $325,350, which consisted of professional fees , general and administrative expenses and expenses relating to the new business operations in relation to Tama 38. During the year ended July 31, 2015, total operating expenses were $57,418, which consisted of professional fees , general and administrative expenses and consulting fees.

 

Net loss

 

During the year ended July 31, 2016 and July 31 2015 , the Company had a net loss of $357,998 and $63,489 respectively ..

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of July 31, 2016, the Company had a cash balance of $53,609.

 

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 $357,998 for the year ended July 31, 2016 and a net loss of $63,489 for the year ended July 31, 2015. 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 sheets of Darkstar Ventures Inc. (a Nevada corporation) as of July 31, 2016 and 2015 and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the years 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, 2016 and 2015 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that 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, 2016, 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 - GENERAL

 

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 ("Bengio")., 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.

 

NOTE 2 - GOING CONCERN

 

The Company has not commenced planned principal operations. The Company had an accumulated deficit of $599,125 as of July31, 2016. In addition, the Company continues to havenegative cash flows from operations. 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 - SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

a.Functional currency

 

The functional currency of the Company is the U.S. dollar (“$” or “dollar"), which is the currency of the primary economic environment in which the operations of the Company are conducted. The functional currency of its foreign subsidiary is the New Israeli Shekel ("NIS").

 

The financial statements of the subsidiary were translated into dollars in accordance with the relevant standards of the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB"). Accordingly, assets and liabilities were translated from NIS to $ using year-end exchange rates and income and expense items were translated at average exchange rates during the year.

 

Gains or losses resulting from translation adjustments are reflected in stockholders' deficit, under “accumulated other comprehensive income (loss)”.

 

  F-6 

 

  

Balances denominated in, or linked to foreign currency are stated on the basis of the exchange rates prevailing at the balance sheet date.

 

   Year ended July 31,
   2016  2015
Official exchange rate of NIS 1 to U.S. dollar   0.261    0.264 

 

b.Principles of consolidation

 

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

 

c.Cash equivalents

 

Cash equivalents are short-term highly liquid investments which include short term bank deposit (up to three months from date of deposit), that are not restricted as to withdrawals or use that are readily convertible to cash with maturities of three months or less as of the date acquired.

 

The company’s cash and cash equivalents are maintained with major banking institutions in Israel.

 

d.Use of estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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 of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Actual results may differ from those estimates

 

 

e.Share-base payments

 

Share-based payments to employees are measured at the fair value of the options issued and amortized over the vesting periods. Share-based payments to non-employees are measured at the fair value of the goods or services received or the fair value of the equity instruments issued if it is determined the fair value of the goods or services cannot be reliably measured, and are recorded at the date the goods or services are received. The amount recognized as an expense is adjusted to reflect the number of awards expected to vest. The offset to the recorded cost is to share-based payments reserve. Consideration received on the exercise of stock options is recorded as capital stock and the related share-based payments reserve is transferred to share capital.

 

f.Loss per share

 

Net loss per share, basic and diluted, is computed on the basis of the net loss for the period divided by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share is based upon the weighted average number of common shares and of common shares equivalents outstanding when dilutive. Common share equivalents include: (i) outstanding stock options under the Company’s share incentive plan and warrants which are included under the treasury share method when dilutive, and (ii) common shares to be issued under the assumed conversion of the Company’s outstanding convertible notes, which are included under the if-converted method when dilutive. The computation of diluted net loss per share for the years ended July 31, 2016 and 2015, does not include common share equivalents, since such inclusion would be anti-dilutive.

 

  F-7 

 

  

g.Deferred income taxes

 

Deferred taxes are determined utilizing the asset and liability method based on the estimated future tax effects of differences between the financial accounting and tax bases of assets and liabilities under the applicable tax laws. Deferred tax balances are computed using the tax rates expected to be in effect when those differences reverse. A valuation allowance in respect of deferred tax assets is provided if, based upon the weight of available evidence, it is more likely than not that some or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The Company has provided a full valuation allowance with respect to its deferred tax assets.

 

h.Fair value measurements 

 

The Company applies fair value accounting for all financial assets and liabilities and non-financial assets and liabilities that are recognized or disclosed at fair value in the financial statements on a recurring basis. The Company defines fair value as the price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. When determining the fair value measurements for assets and liabilities, which are required to be recorded at fair value, the Company considers the principal or most advantageous market in which the Company would transact and the market-based risk measurements or assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, such as risks inherent in valuation techniques, transfer restrictions and credit risk. Fair value is estimated by applying the following hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value into three levels and bases the categorization within the hierarchy upon the lowest level of input that is available and significant to the fair value measurement:

 

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

 

Level 2 – Observable inputs other than quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities, quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in inactive markets, or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.

 

Level 3 – Inputs that are generally unobservable and typically reflect management’s estimate of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability.

 

In accordance with the fair value accounting requirements, companies may choose to measure eligible financial instruments and certain other items at fair value. The Company has not elected the fair value option for any eligible financial instruments.

 

As of July 31, 2016 and 2015, the carrying value of accounts payable and loans that are required to be measured at fair value, approximated fair value due to the short-term nature and maturity of these instruments

 

i.Newly issued accounting pronouncements:

 

In May 2014, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2014-09 (ASU 2014-09), Revenue from Contracts with Customers to clarify the principles for recognizing revenue from contracts with customers. The guidance requires an entity to recognize revenue to depict the transfer of goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which an entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The guidance also requires expanded disclosures relating to the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers. Additionally, qualitative and quantitative disclosures are required about customer contracts, significant judgments and changes in judgments, and assets recognized from the costs to obtain or fulfill a contract. The requirements are effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017 using either of the following transition methods: (i) a full retrospective approach reflecting the application of the standard in each prior reporting period with the option to elect certain practical expedients, or (ii) a retrospective approach with the cumulative effect of initially adopting ASU 2014-09 recognized at the date of adoption (which includes additional footnote disclosures). Early adoption is not permitted. The Company does not anticipate that the adoption of this standard will have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In June 2014, the FASB issued ASU 2014-12, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Accounting for Share-Based Payments When the Terms of an Award Provide that a Performance Target Could be Achieved after the Requisite Service Period (ASU 2014-12), which requires that a performance target that affects vesting, and that could be achieved after the requisite service period, be treated as a performance condition. As such, the performance target should not be reflected in estimating the grant date fair value of the award. This update further clarifies that compensation cost should be recognized in the period in which it becomes probable that the performance target will be achieved and should represent the compensation cost attributable to the period(s) for which the requisite service has already been rendered. The new standard is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2015. Early adoption is permitted. The Company will adopt ASU 2014-12 in the first quarter of fiscal 2017 and do not expect the adoption of this standard to have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-11,  Simplifying the Measurement of Inventory  (ASU 2015-11), which changes the subsequent measurement of inventory from lower of cost or market to lower of cost and net realizable value. The new standard is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2016. Early adoption is permitted. We are currently assessing the impact that this updated standard will have on our consolidated financial statements and footnote disclosures.

 

  F-8 

 

 

In November 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-17,  Balance Sheet Classification of Deferred Taxes  (ASU 2015-17), which requires that all deferred tax assets and liabilities be classified as noncurrent in a classified balance sheet. The new standard is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2016. Early adoption is permitted as of the beginning of an interim or annual reporting period. The Company does not anticipate that the adoption of this standard will have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02,  Leases (Topic 842)  (ASU 2016-02), which requires lessees to recognize on the balance sheet a right-of-use asset, representing its right to use the underlying asset for the lease term, and a corresponding lease liability for all leases with terms greater than twelve months. The guidance also requires qualitative and quantitative disclosures designed to assess the amount, timing and uncertainty of cash flows arising from leases. The new standard is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018, and is required to be applied with a modified retrospective approach. Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not anticipate that the adoption of this standard will have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-09, Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting  (ASU 2016-09), which is intended to simplify several aspects of the accounting for share-based payment transactions, including the accounting for income taxes, forfeitures, and statutory tax withholding requirements, as well as classification in the statement of cash flows. The new standard is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2016. Early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently assessing the impact that this updated standard will have on our consolidated financial statements and footnote disclosures.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13,  Financial Instruments - Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments , which replaces the incurred loss impairment methodology in current GAAP with a methodology that reflects expected credit losses. The new standard is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. Early adoption is permitted. We are currently assessing the impact that this updated standard will have on our consolidated financial statements and footnote disclosures.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments (ASU 2016-15), which clarifies how companies present and classify certain cash receipts and cash payments in the statement of cash flows. The new standard is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. We are currently assessing the impact that this updated standard will have on our consolidated financial statements and footnote disclosures.

  F-9 

 

 

NOTE 6 - COMMON SHARES:

 

On February 16, 2016, the Board of Directors of the Company and the holder of a majority of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock of the Company (the "Majority Consenting Stockholder"), together, executed a joint written consent to authorize and approve a Certificate of Amendment to the Company's Articles of Incorporation to increase the authorized capital stock of the Company from 505,000,000 shares (the "Capital Stock"), consisting of 500,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 (the "Common Stock") and 5,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.0001 (the "Preferred Stock"), to an authorized capital stock of the Corporation of 2,005,000,000 shares consisting of 2,000,000,000 shares of Common Stock and five million 5,000,000 shares of Preferred Stock. It was also decided that the Board of Directors shall have the authority to establish one or more series of Preferred Stock and fix relative rights and preferences of any series of Preferred Stock, without any further action or approval of our stockholders.

 

On April 14, 2016 the Board of Directors of the Company approved the issuance of 270,000,000 restricted shares of common stock of the Company to Avraham Bengio, the Company's shareholder, Sole Director, CEO and CFO in consideration for the conversion of $270,000 loan granted to the Company. In addition, the Board of Directors of the Company has issued 120,000,000 restricted shares of the Company to Avraham Bengio as compensation for services in the amount of $120,000.

 

In addition, the Board of Directors of the Company approved the grant of 200,000 restricted shares of the Company to a service provider as compensation for consulting services in the amount of $200. The shares were valued at $0.001 per share based on the sale of shares to third parties on the same date.

 

The Board of Directors of the Company has also approved on April 14, 2016 the issuance of 150,000,000 restricted shares under a subscription agreement with investors for total consideration of $150,000. The subscription payment date was extended until September 30, 2016.

 

NOTE 7 - LONG TERM LOAN:

 

On February 28, 2016, Bengio and TCSM INC signed a loan agreement according to which TCSM would grant the Company a loan of up to $256,016 (NIS 1,000,000) in two installments of which $222,048 (NIS 850,000) was received as of the balance sheet date. The loan bears interest at an annual rate of 25%. The principal and interest will be repaid at March 1, 2019.

 

On February 28, 2016 TCSM INC assigned its rights in the above loan agreement to a third party. The loan is secured by Avraham Bengio, the Company's majority holder of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock and its Sole Director, CEO and CFO in an amount of up to $172,826 (NIS 650,000).

 

NOTE 8 - INCOME TAXES:

 

At July 31, 2016 the Company had available net-operating loss carryforwards for Federal tax purposes of approximately $324,000, which may be applied againstfuture 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 $110,000 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 $36,000 and $20,000 for the years ended July 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

 

The Company’s subsidiary has estimated total available carryforward operating tax losses for Israeli income tax purposes of approximately $22,000 as of July 31,2016, which may be carryforward to offset against future income for an indefinite period of time.

 

The Company has no uncertain tax positions that require the Company to record a liability.

 

The Company had no accrued penalties and interest related to taxes as of July 31, 2016.

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, 2016, 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, 2016, 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.

PART III

 

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.

 

Name and Business Address   Age   Position
Avraham Bengio
7 Eliezri Street
Jerusalem
Israel
    52     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.

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

 

The following table lists, as of November 14, 2016, 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 647,345,000 shares of our common stock issued and outstanding as of October 26, 2016. 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

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

 

During the fiscal year ending July 31 2016 the Company issued 270,000,000 restricted stock in exchange and in conversion of the officer loans to its sole officer and director. The Company also issued 120,000,000 shares to its director as salary compensation for the fiscal year ending July 31 2016.

 

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.
