VOICESERVE INC - 10-Q - Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
(Edgar Glimpses Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) The following discussion provides information which management believes is relevant to an assessment and understanding of our results of operations and financial condition. The discussion should be read along with our financial statements and notes thereto contained elsewhere in this Report. The following discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements, which involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results may differ significantly from the results, expectations and plans discussed in these forward-looking statements. See "Cautionary Statement on Forward-Looking Information." Overview We were founded December 9, 2005 as 4306, Inc. On February 20, 2007, pursuant to a share exchange agreement (the "Share Exchange"), Voiceserve Limited became our wholly owned subsidiary. Following the Share Exchange, we adopted Voiceserve Limited's business plan and began conducting business as a global Internet communications company. We are now a global Internet communications company that makes it possible for anyone with an Internet connection to make low cost, high quality voice calls over the Internet. Immediately following the Share Exchange, we changed our name to VoiceServe, Inc., to better reflect our new business plan.
Voiceserve Limited was founded in March 2002 by Michael Bibelman, Alexander Ellinson and Mike Ottie. The founders each have over 15 years of experience in the telecommunications industry.
We generate revenue by developing, manufacturing, licensing, and supporting a wide range of VoIP software products and services for many different types of devices, including a wide range of cellular telephones. Our founders began their careers in 1991 with Econophone Inc. ("Econophone") a marketer of international "call-back" and "calling cards". The founders worked as independent resellers of calling cards creating markets in Europe and third world countries transmitting the calls via universal 0800 numbers. While working at Econophone, the founders discovered a huge potential in the market for pre-paid calling cards and were one of the first groups in the industry to market such a product in Europe. Our founders introduced, among the many famous European distributors to market such a product, the Audax Group ("Audax"), based in Holland with an annual turnover in excess of $850 million. Our founders were also instrumental in aiding Econophone LLC in its transformation from a privately held company to one listed on the New York Stock Exchange, known thereafter as Viatel. Once Viatel was listed on the New York Stock Exchange, our founders independently set up their own ISDN and VoIP platforms with the intention of developing and marketing a comprehensive VoIP solution.
Our marketing efforts are focused on VoIP wholesalers termination carriers, retail VoIP providers, Internet providers, including WiFi and WiMax operators, Cable TV networks, GSM providers, telecom resellers, prepaid serve companies, and small-to-medium size companies (businesses, hotels, hospitals, etc.).
On January 15, 2008, we acquired all of the issued and outstanding ordinary shares of VoIPSwitch as well as all of VoipSwitch's assets, including customer orders and intangible assets, for total consideration of $3,000,000 consisting of $450,000 cash, $150,000 notes payable due on demand, $600,000 notes payable in total monthly installments of $50,000 per month for 12 months, and 3,750,000 shares of our common stock valued at $0.48 per share or $1,800,000. Payment of the monthly installments of the $600,000 notes payable was contingent upon and limited each month to the future monthly net income of VoIPSwitch. Accordingly, pursuant to SFAS No. 141, this $600,000 "contingent consideration" portion of the $3,000,000 total purchase price was not included in the initial recorded cost of the acquisition or the recorded notes payable. As payments of the $600,000 notes payable were made, such paid amounts were added to goodwill.
On December 7, 2010, pursuant to a verbal agreement on October 19, 2010, Voiceserve issued a total of 2,250,000 shares of its common stock to the three sellers of VoipSwitch in full and final satisfaction of debt totaling $463,000, consisting of the $150,000 demand note payable and the remaining $313,000 "contingent consideration" potential amount due the three sellers. The $131,250 excess of the $281,250 estimated fair value of the shares, which was calculated based on the October 19, 2010 nearest day closing trading price of $0.25 per share and a 50% restricted stock discount (2,250,000 shares x $0.125 [50% discount applied to 0.25 per share price] per share = $281,250), over the $150,000 demand note payable was added to goodwill.
VoipSwitch VoipSwitch is a complete IP telephony system offering a variety of services including device to phone technology, PC to phone/web to phone features, calling cards, SMS/ANI/PIN/DID/WEB callback, DIDs' mapping, call shops and more. Unlike competitive VoIP systems composed of many different parts, the VoipSwitch platform is fully integrated into one application, which makes it easy to manage. All elements that are necessary for VoIP implementation are already built in. All the features are integrated in one multiple server based application. To date, we have installed over 16,000 VoipSwitch systems around the world.
4 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The "VoipSwitch Brand" has gained recognition and popularity especially in countries where land-line telecommunication infrastructure are less developed. Since increasing our participation in telecom conferences and exhibitions over the last year, awareness of our comprehensive VoIP software offering has significantly increased.
To further the breadth of VoipSwitch's system, we added VoIP dialers for cellular phones. Over the last twelve months, we have enhanced its dialers for Blackberry and Apple's iPhone, in addition to its existing dialers for Symbian (Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, Sony, etc.), Android and Windows® cellular phones. We have also introduced video conferencing for Apple, iPads and iPods, enabling the end-users to conduct economical VoIP video conference calls, worldwide via the internet.
The Company cultivates long-term growth of its businesses through technological innovation, engineering excellence, advanced functionality and security, and a commitment to delivering high-quality products and services. Our goal is to deliver products that provide the best platform with the lowest total cost of ownership.
We will continue to invest in research and development in existing and new lines of business, including Video On Demand. We will also invest in research and development of advanced technologies for future products. We believe that delivering innovative and high-value solutions through our integrated platform is the key to meeting customer needs and to our future growth.
We believe that we have laid a foundation for long-term growth by delivering innovative products, creating opportunities for wholesale and retail partners, and offering a comprehensive VoIP software platform with a low cost of ownership for service providers as well as end users. Our focus in fiscal year 2013 is to build on this foundation, and expand our marketing efforts into North, Central and South America and Asia.
Key market opportunities: VoipSwitchSoftswitch Technology. We are focused on delivering consumers softswitch products that we believe are compelling in terms of design, features, and functionality. We also are working to define the next era of VoIP telephony through the development of innovative software that runs on a wide range of devices and connects people quickly and easily to the information, experiences, and communities they care about.
Mobile phone VoIP connectivity. The ability to combine the power of VoIP and mobile technology via the Internet represents an opportunity across all our businesses lines. We believe our approach will enable us to deliver new experiences to end users and new value to businesses.
Expanding our presence. Through our ability to deliver additional value in VoIP telephony, we believe we are well-positioned to build on our strength. In addition to wholesalers and retailers, we intend to market our VoIP software to small-to-medium size business, hotels, cruise lines, hospitals and schools/universities.
Plan of Operation During the next twelve months, we expect to take the following steps in connection with the development of our business and the implementation of our plan of operations: Maintain a strong presence at key telecommunications exhibitions across the world.
Further develop our Video On Demand capabilities with additional full-time programmers hired during the quarter. We expect to introduce a Video On Demand solution for Hoteliers during our second or third quarter of the current fiscal year. We believe providing VOD to our customers will have a material impact on our ability to penetrate market opportunities.
