THUNDER ENERGIES CORP - 10-K/A - Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
(Edgar Glimpses Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) The following Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations contain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including those set forth under "Risk Factors" and elsewhere in this report. The management's discussion, analysis of financial condition, and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and notes thereto contained elsewhere in this prospectus.
10 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Business Overview.
Thunder Energies Corporation f/k/a Thunder Fusion Corporation and CCJ Acquisition Corp. ("we", "us", "our", or the "Company") was incorporated in the State of Florida on April 21, 2011. Since inception, the Company has been engaged in organizational efforts and obtaining initial financing. The Company was formed as a vehicle to pursue a business combination and had made no efforts to identify a possible business combination. The business purpose of the Company has been to seek the acquisition of or merger with, an existing company. The Company selected December 31 as its fiscal year end.
As of July 1, 2013, the Company, based on proposed business activities, was a "blank check" company. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") defines those companies as "any development stage company that is issuing a penny stock, within the meaning of Section 3 (a)(51) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"), and that has no specific business plan or purpose, or has indicated that its business plan is to merge with an unidentified company or companies." Under SEC Rule 12b-2 under the Exchange Act, the Company also qualified as a "shell company," because it had no or nominal assets (other than cash) and no or nominal operations. Many states have enacted statutes, rules and regulations limiting the sale of securities of "blank check" companies in their respective jurisdictions.
The Company was organized as a vehicle to investigate and, if such investigation warrants, acquire a target company or business seeking the perceived advantages of being a publicly held corporation. As of July 31, 2013, the Company had not entered into any definitive agreement with any party, nor had there been any specific discussions with any potential business combination candidate regarding business opportunities for the Company. Subsequent to our year-end we were subject to a change in control which has resulted in the new majority shareholder and our board of director members causing assets to be assigned to the Company.
On August 10, 2013, the Company entered into an Asset Assignment Agreement (the "IBR Assignment Agreement") with Institute For Basic Research, Inc., a Florida corporation ("IBR") that also is beneficially controlled by our Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Ruggero M. Santilli. Pursuant to the IBR Assignment Agreement, IBR irrevocably assigned to the Company all rights, title, ownership and interests in all of IBR's internet website domain name assets, owned and hereinafter acquired by IBR including, but not limited to, all physical and intangible assets and intellectual property related to the assets.
On August 11, 2013, Thunder Energies Corporation (the "Company") entered into an Asset Assignment Agreement (the "Assignment Agreement") with HyFuels, Inc., a Florida corporation ("HyFuels") beneficially controlled by our Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Ruggero M. Santilli. Pursuant to the Assignment Agreement, HyFuels irrevocably assigned to the Company all physical assets, intangible assets, accounts receivable, intellectual property, accounting software, billing software, client lists, client prospects, trade secrets, proprietary property, the intellectual and physical property known as intermediate nuclear fusion without radiation, the physical property consisting of seven (7) Hadronic reactors, all copyrights, patents, patent applications, patent assignments, trademarks and anything having commercial or exchange value and the like.
Consideration for the assignment agreements consisted of one million (1,000,000) shares of our common stock that were issued to Dr. Ruggero M. Santilli, as designee for IBR and HyFuels. Company management determined the amount of consideration based upon ASC 845-10-S99 pertaining to transfer of non-monetary assets. According to ASC 845-10-S99, transfers of non-monetary assets to a company by its promoters or shareholders in exchange for stock prior to or at the time of the entity's initial public offering should be recorded at the transferors' historical cost basis determined under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. As such, the cost basis carried on the books and records of HyFuels and IBR was minimal or essentially zero. Therefore, the accounting principles in ASC 845-10-S99 were followed and the Company recorded the intellectual and physical properties at its historical cost basis, which was at the historical cost basis of a nominal amount. In connection with the aforementioned assignment agreements, 1,000,000 shares of our common stock were transferred in exchange for the assets. The transfer was valued at one thousand dollars ($1,000.00), the value of the shares issued at par ($0.001) in exchange for the assets. This amount was determined by the Company to be de-minimus to the value received in the exchange and approximates the basis of those assets.
11 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Company has recorded the property and intangibles (7 reactors, intellectual property rights to develop the technology, and website) as an intangible asset.
The valuation of the properties will be the par value of the stock received in exchange for the rights and assets. The Company's filings will include a disclosure in the MD&A section and notes to the financial statement under the heading "Non-Monetary Transaction". Management believes that the $1,000.00 valuation is reflective of the salvage value of the physical property, at a minimum. Our Company purchased internet website domain name assets owned by IBR and the intellectual and physical property known as intermediate nuclear fusion without radiation, the physical property consisting of seven (7) Hadronic reactors, all copyrights, patents, patent applications, patent assignments, trademarks and anything having commercial or exchange value owned by HyFuels as related to the reactors. None of the assets purchased had ever generated revenue for IBR or HyFuels. Although the Asset Assignment Agreements were more comprehensive in their description of "assets", the aforementioned items were the only assets assigned to the Company.
Our Company purchased internet website domain name assets owned by IBR and the intellectual and physical property known as intermediate nuclear fusion without radiation, the physical property consisting of seven (7) Hadronic reactors, all copyrights, patents, patent applications, patent assignments, trademarks and anything having commercial or exchange value owned by HyFuels as related to the reactors. None of the assets purchased had ever generated revenue for IBR or HyFuels. Although the Asset Assignment Agreements were more comprehensive in their description of "assets", the aforementioned items were the only assets assigned to the Company.
A further description of the assignors, IBR and HyFuels, follows. IBR is a Florida Corporation whose only business operations are the publication of an internet blog relating to scientific and academic matters. IBR does not generate revenue and has no expenses. Furthermore, IBR has never maintained a checking account. This status has been consistent over the last several years. Our Chief Executive Officer and Director, Dr. Ruggero M. Santilli is president and a director for IBR. IBR does not have any ownership interest in any of our securities.
HyFuels is a Florida corporation that utilized research and development funds to create the seven Hadronic reactors, but otherwise has no business operations since its inception. Its sole purpose is to serve as a patent holding company.
Our Chief Executive Officer and Director, Dr. Ruggero M. Santilli is president and a director for HyFuels. HyFuels also does not have any ownership interest in any of our securities.
Neither IBR nor HyFuels has made any effort to commercialize the assets for purposes of generating revenue. Both IBR and HyFuels continue to exist as Florida corporations separate and distinct from the Company. Though they are deemed "related" entities through a common officer and director with our Company, they remain otherwise "unaffiliated" with our Company.
IBR maintains its principal place of business at 90 East Winds Court, Palm Harbor, Florida 34689. HyFuels maintains its principal place of business at 35246 US Highway 19 North, #215, Palm Harbor, Florida 34684. There is no continuity of facilities with the Company.
Neither IBR nor HyFuels had an employee base, a distribution system, a sales force, a customer base, production techniques or trade names associated with the assets. Their ownership rights may arguably be referred to as operating rights but there were essentially no operations associated with the assets.
The only activities of the assignors involved the creation of the Internet website domain names and the creation of the seven Hadronic reactors and associated patents pending. These assets did not generate revenue prior to the assignment, so there is essentially no financial data to report regarding "revenue producing activity previously associated with the acquired assets".
Furthermore, there is no "sufficient continuity of operations with our Company so that disclosure of prior financial information regarding IBR or HyFuels is material to an understanding of future operations regarding our Company.
12 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Description of Business, Principal Products, Services The business of Thunder Energies Corporation ("TEC") is focused on the development of a new clean combustion of fossil fuels (oil, diesel, coal, etc.) with controlled minimal contaminants in the exhaust. Our business objective is achieved via new forms of processing fossil fuels, new additives to the combustion and the assistance of a high voltage electric discharges (patents pending) that burn combustible contaminants in fossil fuel exhaust while providing added on clean energy. The expected principal product, depending on funding, is a new type of furnace for the clean combustion of fossil fuel available in any desired size for any type of energy application, from home heating to large plants for the clean production of electricity. The expected services are to be rendered by providing technical assistance to the market consisting of existing fossil fuel electric power plants for their decrease of pollutants in the exhaust and their verification of EPA regulations on the release of contaminants in the atmosphere. A prototype new furnace is expected to be available within one year following the availability of the necessary funds. As we are a development stage company, we have not yet generated any revenue from the assets that were recently assigned to and acquired by the Company, including the Hadronic reactors. The Hadronic reactors have been utilized to test and confirm the technology for ultimate inclusion in the new furnaces.
Distribution Methods Of The Products and Services Initially, we anticipate marketing via large advertisements on the internet, such as via PRWeb Releases. We expect to market through contacts that we are able to generate, and then via direct contacts of potential buyers of TEC new fossil fuel furnaces or TEC services for the improvement of existing fossil fuel burning plants.
Status of Any Publicly Announced New Product Or Service We have not yet made any public announcement regarding our products or services.
We do not contemplate making any such announcements until the availability of a prototype furnace for the clean combustion of fossil fuels as described above.
We have only published announcements regarding the new sciences underlying the new clean combustion of fossil fuels as disclosed on our corporate website, www.thunder-energies.com.
Competitive Business Conditions And The Smaller Reporting Company's Competitive Position In The Industry And Methods Of Competition There exist many types of furnaces for the combustion of fossil fuels but they are all based on conventional combustion of fossil fuels and then the removal of contaminants in the exhaust. By contrast, the main function of TEC furnaces is that of improving the combustion with consequential reduction of contaminants in the exhaust while increasing the energy output for the same fossil fuel.
Sources And Availability Of Raw Materials And The Names Of Principal Suppliers The raw material needed by the TEC furnaces is given by conventional fossil fuels all available in the U.S.A. by a large number of suppliers.
13 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Dependence On One Or A Few Customers We do not presently have any committed customers for our TEC furnaces. However, upon completion of the manufacture and testing of our prototype, we believe that there will be a large market that will be interested in our products and services.
Patents, Trademarks, Licenses, Franchises, Concessions, Royalty Agreements Or Labor Contracts, Including Duration A first patent application is pending, while additional patent applications are expected depending on funding. Trademarks are expected to be applied for depending on funding. No franchisee or license is expected during the first three years of operation. Labor contracts for employees are planned for implementation following legal assistance and decisions by our Board of Directors.
Need Form Any Government Approval Of Principal Products Or Services No governmental approval or permits is expected for the development of the new furnaces for the clean combustion of fossil fuels. Following their availability, the TEC furnaces will be subject to and must comply with applicable EPA requirements for permitted levels of contaminants in the exhaust.
Effect Of Existing Or Probable Governmental Regulations On The Business Due to its novel conception, a principal objective of TEC furnaces is that of surpassing current EPA requirements for the contaminants in the combustion exhaust released in the atmosphere.
Estimate Of The Amount Of Money Spent During Each Of The Last Two Fiscal Years On Research And Development There have been no funds expended by the Company on research and development in the last two fiscal years. All funding for the development of our products to date has been derived from related entities, IBR and HyFuels, which are beneficially controlled by our Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Ruggero M. Santilli.
Costs and Effects Of Compliance With Environmental Laws We are unable to estimate the costs and effects of compliance with environmental laws prior to completion of a TEC prototype furnace.
Number Of Total Employees And Number Of Full-Time Employees At this time, the Company has two full time employees and five persons working part time in various functions.
14 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Implications of Being an Emerging Growth Company We qualify as an emerging growth company as that term is used in the JOBS Act.
An emerging growth company may take advantage of specified reduced reporting and other burdens that are otherwise applicable generally to public companies. These provisions include: • A requirement to have only two years of audited financial statements and only two years of related MD&A; • Exemption from the auditor attestation requirement in the assessment of the emerging growth company's internal control over financial reporting under Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002; • Reduced disclosure about the emerging growth company's executive compensation arrangements; and • No non-binding advisory votes on executive compensation or golden parachute arrangements.
We have already taken advantage of these reduced reporting burdens in this amendment to our Current Report on Form 8-K, which are also available to us as a smaller reporting company as defined under Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act").
In addition, Section 107 of the JOBS Act also provides that an emerging growth company can take advantage of the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") for complying with new or revised accounting standards. We are choosing to utilize the extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards under Section 102(b)(2) of the JOBS Act. This election allows our Company to delay the adoption of new or revised accounting standards that have different effective dates for public and private companies until those standards apply to private companies. As a result of this election, our financial statements may not be comparable to companies that comply with public company effective dates.
We could remain an emerging growth company for up to five years, or until the earliest of (i) the last day of the first fiscal year in which our annual gross revenues exceed $1 billion, (ii) the date that we become a "large accelerated filer" as defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Exchange Act, which would occur if the market value of our common stock that is held by non-affiliates exceeds $700 million as of the last business day of our most recently completed second fiscal quarter, or (iii) the date on which we have issued more than $1 billion in non-convertible debt during the preceding three year period.
We are a reporting company and file all reports required under sections 13 and 15d of the Exchange Act.
Results of Operations and Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates.
The results of operations are based on preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.
The preparation of financial statements requires management to select accounting policies for critical accounting areas as well as estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements. The Company's accounting policies are more fully described in Note 2 to the Notes of Financial Statements.
15 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Results of Operations for the development stage, April 21, 2011 (date of inception) through December 31, 2013.
The Company was organized as of April 21, 2011. Due to the limited operations and the date of inception of April 21, 2011, the results of operations for the year ended December 31, 2013 are not comparable to a prior period.
Total Revenue. Total revenues for the development stage April 21, 2011 (date of inception) through December 31, 2013 were $-0-.
Total Expenses. Total operating expenses for the development stage April 21, 2011 (date of inception) through December 31, 2013 were $674,659. Total expenses consisted of advertising of $55; research and development of $4,047; stock based compensation of $500,000; professional fees of $51,156; selling, general and administrative expenses of $119,057; and interest expense of $344.
Total Assets. Total assets at December 31, 2013 were $5,522. Total assets consist of cash of $3,913; prepaid expenses of $609 and intangible assets of $$1,000.
Total Liabilities. Total liabilities at December 31, 2013 were $179,181. Total liabilities consist of accounts payable of $40,375; accrued interest of $344; note payable to the CEO of $60,000 and accrued salaries of $78,462.
Liquidity and Capital Resources.
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern which contemplates, among other things, the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the ordinary course of business.
The Company sustained a loss of $674,659 for the year ended December 31, 2013.
The Company has an accumulated loss of $674,659 during the development stage, April 21, 2011 (date of inception) through December 31, 2013. Because of the absence of positive cash flows from operations, the Company will require additional funding for continuing the development and marketing of products.
These factors 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.
We are presently able to meet our obligations as they come due through the support of our shareholders. At December 31, 2013 we had a working capital deficit of $174,659. Our working capital deficit is due to the results of operations.
Net cash used in operating activities for the development stage April 21, 2011 (date of inception) through December 31, 2013 was ($56,087). Net cash used in operating activities includes our net loss, stock based compensation, prepaid expense, accounts payable, accrued salaries and accrued interest.
16 -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Net cash used in investing activities for the year ended December 31, 2013 was ($1,000). Net cash used in investing activities for the development stage April 21, 2011 (date of inception) through December 31, 2013 was ($1,000). Net cash used in investing activities includes the assignment of intangible assets of ($1,000).
Net cash provided by financing activities for the year ended December 31, 2013 was $61,000. Net cash provided by financing activities for the development stage April 21, 2011 (date of inception) through December 31, 2013 was $61,000. Net cash provided by financing activities includes the issuance of common stock for intangible assets of $1,000 and proceeds from notes payable- related party of $60,000.
We anticipate that our future liquidity requirements will arise from the need to fund our growth from operations, pay current obligations and future capital expenditures. The primary sources of funding for such requirements are expected to be cash generated from operations and raising additional funds from the private sources and/or debt financing. However, we can provide no assurances that we will be able to generate sufficient cash flow from operations and/or obtain additional financing on terms satisfactory to us, if at all, to remain a going concern. Our continuation as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to generate sufficient cash flow to meet our obligations on a timely basis and ultimately to attain profitability. Our Plan of Operation for the next twelve months is to raise capital to implement our strategy.We do not have the necessary cash and revenue to satisfy our cash requirements for the next twelve months. We cannot guarantee that additional funding will be available on favorable terms, if at all. If adequate funds are not available, then we may not be able to expand our operations. If adequate funds are not available, we believe that our officers and directors will contribute funds to pay for some of our expenses. However, we have not made any arrangements or agreements with our officers and directors regarding such advancement of funds. We do not know whether we will issue stock for the loans or whether we will merely prepare and sign promissory notes. If we are forced to seek funds from our officers or directors, we will negotiate the specific terms and conditions of such loan when made, if ever. Although we are not presently engaged in any capital raising activities, we anticipate that we may engage in one or more private offering of our company's securities after the completion of this offering. We would most likely rely upon the transaction exemptions from registration provided by Regulation D, Rule 506 or conduct another private offering under Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933. See "Note 2 - Going Concern" in our financial statements for additional information as to the possibility that we may not be able to continue as a "going concern." We are not aware of any trends or known demands, commitments, events or uncertainties that will result in or that are reasonably likely to result in material increases or decreases in liquidity.
We had no material commitments for capital expenditures as of December 31, 2013.
