BACKGROUND IN Media Corporation (the "Company") is a Nevada corporation incorporated on March 5, 2007 as Tres Estrellas Enterprises, Inc. ("Tres Estrellas"). Effective February 3, 2010, we changed our name to IN Media Corporation. We are a development stage company. On October 30, 2009 (the "Acquisition Date"), we executed an agreement between IN Media Corporation ("IN Media") and Tres Estrellas whereby IN Media shareholders acquired thirty-three million, five hundred thousand (33,500,000) shares of the our company's common stock, we received all the issued and outstanding stock of In Media, and IN Media was merged into Tres Estrellas. We reported this event on Form 8-K, filed with the Securities and Exchange Agreement on November 2, 2009. For financial accounting purposes, the acquisition was a reverse merger of our company by IN Media, under the purchase method of accounting, and was treated as a recapitalization with IN Media as the acquirer. Upon consummation of the merger, we adopted the business plan of IN Media. Accordingly, the consolidated statements of operations include the results of operations of IN Media from its inception on October 27, 2008 and the results of operations of Tres Estrellas from the Acquisition Date through September 30, 2012. Our fiscal year end is December 31.
13BUSINESS With our registered office in Reno, Nevada, and principal executive office in Los Altos, CA, we are a development stage company positioned to exploit the emerging market for Internet Protocol Television ("IPTV") services for cable, satellite, internet, telephony and mobile markets. IPTV delivers video content from public domain and premium content sources over the internet to consumer display devices ranging from large screen TVs in the home, to mobile display devices such as the I-Phone or I-Pad. Our goal is to become a global leader of IPTV implementation systems through the design and delivery of a combination of hardware, software, manufacturing and content services at competitive prices.
Our systems may be offered to communications providers such as cable or satellite channels, governmental organizations, content owners such as publishers, movie and video game owners, and other premium content providers, or distributors and re-sellers who support such channels to either complete their proprietary offerings or provide an all-in-one solution.
TRENDS AND MARKET OPPORTUNITIES * In recent years the opportunity for IPTV has been fuelled by various factors including, but not limited to improvements in broadband technology and infrastructure, and consequent reduced cost * Growth of mass market adoption of broadband access including mobile applications * Consumer expectations and pressure for video on demand rather than general broadcast distribution which has become increasingly expensive and generally poor quality content * Fragmentation and specialization of content ownership encouraging content owners to make their content available by subscription, advertising sponsorship, or as a message delivery medium These trends have taken place in the North American market, but even more so in developing countries around the world. Although we have focussed our efforts on developing business opportunities in China, the demand is universal, and we have received expressions of interest in our hardware products from India and Sri Lankar.
PRODUCTS We offer our customers fully integrated plug-and-play solutions comprising hardware devices, operating software, and access to a library of video content.
We are currently offering a choice of three hardware devices: IPTV SET TOP BOX(IPSTB): The IPSTB enables a user to access video content such as movies, videos, games, and educational or other promotional content simply connecting the IPSTB to ethernet cable from a home Internet source such as a Modem on one side to a Hi Definition TV set, or other convenient display on the other. Once connected, the user gains access to internet content like YouTube, Yahoo, Google or premium distribution sites like NetFlix, which stream video over the internet.
TABLET PC : Our Tablet PC, offered in both 7 inch or 10 inch screen models works in exactly the same way as our IPSTB enabling the user to access video over the internet, however, because the display and the STB functionality are both integrated into the device, the Tablet PC can also be used as a regular browser for web surfing and other internet enabled functions like checking emails, or making phone calls, in the same way as a consumer might use an Apple iPad.
PREMIUM VIDEO CONTENT: We currently have the rights to make available our library of over 4,000 entertainment titles from Hollywood to "Bollywood" (the informal term popularly used for the Mumbai-based Hindi-language film industry in India) movies. This library can be made available and accessed by users through their IPTV platform by direct subscription, or indirectly via third party channels.
DEVELOPMENT STAGE OPERATIONS To date, we have built our business by focusing on outsourcing to an experienced and well established third party provider to reduce the risk of product development problems and delays, market and employee acquisition, and up-front cash flow. This provider has been responsible for designing our products and 14operating software, QA testing, customer demonstration and evaluation support, as well as market analysis, channel development and sales promotion. They also provide general and operational support, such that we have no full time employees, or full time employee equivalents on our own books. By adopting this approach, we have managed to develop, test, and bring to market three distinct product offerings in the highly competitive global market for IP TV at a significantly lower cost than if we had carried out these activities in-house.
This provider, Numerity Corporation, is owned and controlled by Mr. Karnick, one of our shareholders, directors and officers, and provides contract executive, administration and business development services (the "Service Agreement") to us. Initially, the Service Agreement provided for contract service fees of $40,000 per month, but subsequently, on as of January 1, 2011 our company and Numerity agreed to discontinue contract service charges, and instead have Numerity bill the Company for the actual cost of any goods or services provided wholly, exclusively and necessarily for our benefit. Effective September 1, 2012, in an effort to promote new business development efforts, the Company agreed to further amend the Service Agreement such that they again pay $40,000 per calendar month in service fees to Numerity. The amendments were approved by the Board of Directors, including Mr. Danny Mabey, a member of the Board of Directors with no interest in Numerity.
Additionally, in November 2008, we licensed our engineering technology, IP and set top box designs (the "Licensing and Maintenance Agreement") from Numerity and committed to pay maintenance and royalties of $415,000 per annum. On July 1, 2010, we agreed to amend that licensing agreement to provide a deferral of any further maintenance dues, and an extension of credit until three months after first commercial shipment. The amendment to the Licensing and Maintenance Agreement was additionally approved by the Board of Directors, including Mr.
Danny Mabey, a member of the Board of Directors with no interest in Numerity.
One of our shareholders, Guifeng Qui, who owns approximately 13 million shares of restricted common stock, has a controlling interest in the Chinese distributor who we have appointed to represent us in developing our business in China. The Agreement with this distributor provides that we will receive a margin of $20 on each unit of set-top box sold through that distribution channel, and an additional $5 per month per subscriber for content distribution contracts using our content library. At the same time, we have been working with other distribution channels in China and other international markets to demonstrate and prove our products and our integrated platform which includes hardware, software, and content.
We have focused our efforts on developing business opportunities in China and India and although we have received several verbal or written expressions of interest in purchasing our products we have not actually fulfilled any orders or shipped any of our products as of September 30, 2012. Our ability to fulfil sales orders is strongly linked to our lack of financial resources and inability to secure credit terms from our sub-contract manufacturers and component suppliers, and despite our best efforts to raise working capital through debt and equity transactions, extended supplier credit, and customer advances, we have not yet managed to solve these problems, and initial orders have subsequently lapsed. We currently have an advance from one customer and are continuing to explore credit arrangements with our sub-contract manufacturer to finance production of this order and believe, although we cannot guarantee, to move beyond our development stage into an operational stage by the end of 2012.
The ability of the Company to emerge from the development stage is dependent upon, among other things, obtaining additional financing to purchase the inventory required to fulfill purchase order interests and make on-account payments to vendors, while continuing to service our current debt obligations and cover our overhead expenses. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
THE COMPETITION AND COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE The competitive landscape for IPTV services is very crowded as the market potential is very large. The key players will be the platform providers who control access to telephony, television, internet and content for consumers.
However, new players like Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, and the major Hollywood studios are moving forward on their own solutions to monetize content and services over the internet. Key hardware vendors like Motorola, Cisco, Intel, etc. are also potential competitors for set-top box solutions as they have previously established relationships with the platform providers.
15Although our competitors have strong brands and significant engineering and marketing budgets we believe that we will have an opportunity to compete because we have outsourced our manufacturing and distribution function in China to local partners who know and operate in the Chinese market where our cost is low and the power of established US brands may not be so powerful. Since we already have a fully functional product offering and have established local distribution we believe our market offering in China is fully competitive with solutions from our competitors.
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS We are a development stage company and have been focused to date on developing and refining our product hardware and operating platform to reflect market feedback, and build our distribution channels and relationships, however we have not yet generated any revenues while we have incurred $2,944,844 in expenses since inception through September 30, 2012. Although we have received purchase orders for our hardware products from time to time, as a result of our lack of financial resources and inability to secure credit terms from our sub-contract manufacturer we have not yet managed to solve the problems of financing production of the inventory that we need to fulfill these orders, and such orders subsequently lapsed. We will not be able to fulfill or accept other orders until we can establish additional funding to open letters of credit, or place security deposits with our contract manufacturer, and we are currently exploring all financing options. We estimate that we may need to procure approximately up to $500,000 in financing to secure the first delivery on any orders booked. While we have only limited tangible assets as collateral to support debt financing, we believe we have significant intangible value, including the licensed IP rights to our fully operational IPTV products and systems, an established international distribution channel for our products, and interest from a potential customer. This customer has agreed to work with us while we seek and negotiate financing arrangements to fund these orders, however, as a result of the delay, they are asking us to upgrade or customize certain features to remain at the forefront of the competitive market by the time we actually ship the products ordered. If we are unable to secure financing for production and delivery of these purchase orders within a reasonable period of time we face the risk that the opportunity may be cancelled or diverted to other providers of IP TV equipment.
OPERATIONS FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2012 We incurred $109,256 and $108,352 in general administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. These costs consisted of general and administration, business development expenses, and professional fees associated with our financial reports and SEC filings.
We did not incur any development expenses in the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, since our products are now developed and we are directing our limited cash resources to business development and reporting compliance. We entered into a Licensing and Maintenance Agreement with Numerity Corporation in which we committed to pay $415,000 per year in maintenance fees, and intended to amortize the cost over a twelve month period. At various times, as expectations of first commercial shipments were delayed, the maintenance period was extended and terms amended. The amended License and Maintenance Agreement now provides that maintenance charges will be waived until three months after first commercial shipment of licensed IPTV product.
Interest and debt discount expense amounted to $0 and $35,713 for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The related note was converted into common stock in April 2012, thereby eliminating further interest expense from that date.
OPERATIONS FOR THE NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2012 We incurred $236,448 and $430,824 in general administrative expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. These costs consisted of general and administration, business development expenses, and professional fees associated with our financial reports and SEC filings. The decrease of 45% over the same period in 2011 was principally due to a reduction in consulting fees to Numerity.
Additionally, we incurred $0 and $207,500 of development expenses in the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. We entered into a Licensing and Maintenance Agreement with Numerity Corporation in which it committed to pay $415,000 per year in maintenance fees, and intended to amortize 16the cost over a twelve month period. At various times, as expectations of first commercial shipments were delayed, the maintenance period was extended and terms amended. The amended License and Maintenance Agreement now provides that maintenance charges will be waived until three months after first commercial shipment of licensed IPTV product. As a result, nothing was amortized in the nine months ended September 30, 2012, while $207,500 was amortized in the nine months ended September 30, 2011.
Interest and debt discount expense amounted to $11,487 and $115,449 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. All notes were converted into common stock as of April 2012, thereby eliminating further interest expense from that date. Interest expense for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 included $10,389 amortization of debt discount, and $1,098 of note interest.
The following table provides selected financial data about our company as at September 30, 2012.
Balance Sheet Data: ------------------- Cash $ 1,528 Total assets $ 41,528 Total liabilities $ 608,467 Shareholders' equity (deficit) $(566,939) LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES Our cash balance at September 30, 2012 was $1,528. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, we generated $1,476 in cash, all of which was generated by operating activities. We also received advances of $33,360 from Numerity which was used to pay outstanding liabilities.
We are a development stage company and have generated no revenue to date.
Although we have managed to raise $290,000 through the issuance of common stock, secured advances from directors and officers of our company, obtained extended credit from related parties in connection with services provided, and raised funding from the issuance of convertible notes, aggregating $348,000 as of September 30, 2012, there is no assurance that we can secure additional funding to cover our expenses or working capital requirements in the future.. As a result of the loss of our original market maker, and delays in finding a replacement and completing the required approval with FINRA, our stock was listed on the OTCQB exchange rather than on the OTC Bulletin Board, and this may have hampered our ability to raise additional note financing from our current note finance partner or other potential investors. Subsequently, in June 2011, our application for relisting on OTC Bulletin Board was approved by FINRA.
We are currently seeking other available sources of funding to provide secured, back-to-back financing of purchase order commitments with production inventory.
If we are unable to secure adequate capital to continue, our business will likely fail, and our shareholders could lose some or all of their investment. We cannot continually incur operating losses in the future and may decide that we can no longer continue with our business operations as detailed in our business plan because of a lack of financial results and a lack of available financial resources.
OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS 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 is material to investors.
RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS Recent accounting pronouncements that the Company has adopted or that will be required to adopt in the future are summarized below.
17On September 30, 2009, we adopted updates issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) to the authoritative hierarchy of GAAP. These changes establish the FASB Accounting Standards CodificationTM (ASC) as the source of authoritative accounting principles recognized by the FASB to be applied by nongovernmental entities in the preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP. Rules and interpretive releases of the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") under authority of federal securities laws are also sources of authoritative GAAP for SEC registrants. The FASB will no longer issue new standards in the form of Statements, FASB Staff Positions, or Emerging Issues Task Force Abstracts; instead the FASB will issue Accounting Standards Updates. Accounting Standards Updates will not be authoritative in their own right as they will only serve to update the Codification. These changes and the Codification itself do not change GAAP. Other than the manner in which new accounting guidance is referenced, the adoption of these changes had no impact on the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements.
In June 2009, the FASB issued guidance now codified as ASC Topic 105, "GENERALLY ACCEPTED ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES" ("ASC 105"), which establishes the FASB Accounting Standards Codification as the source of GAAP to be applied to nongovernmental agencies. ASC 105 explicitly recognizes rules and interpretive releases of the SEC under authority of federal securities laws as authoritative GAAP for SEC registrants. ASC 105 became effective for interim or annual periods ending after September 15, 2009. ASC 105 does not have a material impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements presented hereby.
In May 2009, the FASB issued guidance now codified as ASC Topic 855, "SUBSEQUENT EVENTS" ("ASC 855"). The pronouncement modifies the definition of what qualifies as a subsequent event--those events or transactions that occur following the balance sheet date, but before the financial statements are issued, or are available to be issued--and requires companies to disclose the date through which it has evaluated subsequent events and the basis for determining that date. The Company adopted the provisions of ASC 855 in the second quarter of 2009, in accordance with the effective date.
On July 1, 2009, we adopted guidance issued by the FASB on business combinations. The guidance retains the fundamental requirements that the acquisition method of accounting (previously referred to as the purchase method of accounting) be used for all business combinations, but requires a number of changes, including changes in the way assets and liabilities are recognized and measured as a result of business combinations. It also requires the capitalization of in-process research and development at fair value and requires the expensing of acquisition-related costs as incurred. We have applied this guidance to business combinations completed since July 1, 2009.
On July 1, 2009, we adopted guidance issued by the FASB that changes the accounting and reporting for non-controlling interests. Non-controlling interests are to be reported as a component of equity separate from the parent's equity, and purchases or sales of equity interests that do not result in a change in control are to be accounted for as equity transactions. In addition, net income attributable to a non-controlling interest is to be included in net income and, upon a loss of control, the interest sold, as well as any interest retained, is to be recorded at fair value with any gain or loss recognized in net income. Adoption of the new guidance did not have a material impact on our financial statements. On July 1, 2009, we adopted guidance on fair value measurement for non-financial assets and liabilities, except for items that are recognized or disclosed at fair value in the financial statements on a recurring basis (at least annually). Adoption of the new guidance did not have a material impact on our financial statements.
In January 2010, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued guidance to amend the disclosure requirements related to recurring and nonrecurring fair value measurements. The guidance requires new disclosures on the transfers of assets and liabilities between Level 1 (quoted prices in active market for identical assets or liabilities) and Level 2 (significant other observable inputs) of the fair value measurement hierarchy, including the reasons and the timing of the transfers. Additionally, the guidance requires a roll forward of activities on purchases, sales, issuance, and settlements of the assets and liabilities measured using significant unobservable inputs (Level 3 fair value measurements). The guidance became effective for us with the 18reporting period beginning January 1, 2010, except for the disclosure on the roll forward activities for Level 3 fair value measurements, which will become effective for us with the reporting period beginning July 1, 2011. Other than requiring additional disclosures, adoption of this new guidance did not have a material impact on our financial statements.
On February 24, 2010, the FASB issued guidance in the "Subsequent Events" topic of the FASC to provide updates including: (1) requiring the company to evaluate subsequent events through the date in which the financial statements are issued; (2) amending the glossary of the "Subsequent Events" topic to include the definition of "SEC filer" and exclude the definition of "Public entity"; and (3) eliminating the requirement to disclose the date through which subsequent events have been evaluated. This guidance was prospectively effective upon issuance.
The adoption of this guidance did not impact the Company's results of operations of financial condition.
In October 2009, the FASB issued guidance on revenue recognition that became effective for us beginning July 1, 2010. Under the new guidance on arrangements that include software elements, tangible products that have software components that are essential to the functionality of the tangible product will no longer be within the scope of the software revenue recognition guidance, and software-enabled products will now be subject to other relevant revenue recognition guidance. Additionally, the FASB issued guidance on revenue arrangements with multiple deliverables that are outside the scope of the software revenue recognition guidance. Under the new guidance, when vendor specific objective evidence or third party evidence for deliverables in an arrangement cannot be determined, a best estimate of the selling price is required to separate deliverables and allocate arrangement consideration using the relative selling price method. The new guidance includes new disclosure requirements on how the application of the relative selling price method affects the timing and amount of revenue recognition. We believe adoption of this new guidance will not have a material impact on our financial statements. In June 2009, the FASB issued guidance on the consolidation of variable interest entities, which became effective for us beginning July 1, 2010. The new guidance requires revised evaluations of whether entities represent variable interest entities, ongoing assessments of control over such entities, and additional disclosures for variable interest entities.
In January 2010, the FASB issued an amendment to ASC 505, Equity, where entities that declare dividends to shareholders that may be paid in cash or shares at the election of the shareholders are considered to be a share issuance that is reflected prospectively in EPS, and is not accounted for as a stock dividend.
This standard is effective for interim and annual periods ending on or after December 15, 2009 and is to be applied on a retrospective basis. The adoption of this standard did not have a significant impact on the Company's consolidated financial statements.
In June 2011, the FASB issued a new accounting standard requiring most entities to present items of net income and other comprehensive income either in one continuous statement -- referred to as the statement of comprehensive income -- or in two separate, but consecutive, statements of net income and comprehensive income. The update does not change the items that must be reported in other comprehensive income or when an item of other comprehensive income must be reclassified to net income. The new standard included a requirement to present reclassification adjustments out of accumulated other comprehensive income by component on the face of the financial statements. In December 2011, the reclassification requirement within the new standard was deferred until further guidance is issued on this topic. The new standard is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011.
In September 2011, the FASB issued an updated accounting standard to allow entities the option to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is necessary to perform the two-step quantitative goodwill impairment test.
Under the updated standard an entity would not be required to calculate the fair value of a reporting unit unless the entity determines, based on a qualitative assessment, that it is more likely than not that its fair value is less than its carrying amount. The updated standard is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011.
The Company has implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect and that may impact its financial statements and does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.
