FIRST NATIONAL ENERGY CORPORATION

Notes to Interim Consolidated Financial Statements

September 30, 2017

(Amounts expressed in US Dollars)

 

1. NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND PURCHASE OF TECHNOLOGY

 

a) Nature of operations

 

First National Energy Corporation (the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Delaware on November 16, 2000, under the name Capstone International Corporation. On March 28, 2004, the Company changed its name to First National Power Corporation. On February 12, 2009, the Company relocated its charter to the State of Nevada and changed its name to First National Energy Corporation. As part of its reorganization, the Company increased its authorized capital to 300 million common shares and effected a 100 for 1 reverse stock split of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The accompanying consolidated financial statements reflect all share data based on the 100 for 1 reverse common stock split.

 

The Company’s business purpose is the provision of wind-driven solutions for power generation. Current projects for the Company are the completion of power generation projects from supplemental wind generation technologies.

 

b) Purchase of Technology License

 

On April 20, 2009, the Company entered into a preliminary letter of intent with Boreas Research Corporation (“Boreas”), a Florida corporation, pursuant to which the Company would acquire a territorial license to certain rights in alternative energy technology of Boreas, in exchange for a quantity of newly issued common shares of the Company. The letter of intent was superseded by a Technology License and Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Agreement”) between the Company and Boreas that was consummated on May 25, 2009 (the “Closing”), at which time the Company issued to the stockholders of Boreas 98,800,000 new restricted and unregistered common shares of the Company and agreed to pay certain future royalties to Boreas from net revenues realized by the Company from the technology license. The consideration issued in the transaction was determined as a result of arm’s-length negotiations between the parties.

 

The preliminary letter of intent was reported by the Company on form 8-K to the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on April 21, 2009, and the Agreement was annexed to an information statement on form 14-C filed with the SEC in preliminary and definitive forms on April 22, 2009 and May 4, 2009, respectively. The definitive information statement was mailed to the Stockholders of the Company on May 4, 2009.

 

The Company obtained written consent to the Agreement and the transaction from the holders of 55.82% of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock in lieu of a meeting of stockholders.

 

In exchange for the Company acquiring the technology license from Boreas at the Closing pursuant to the Agreement (as amended by the Amendment), the Stockholders of Boreas received an aggregate of 98,800,000 new restricted and unregistered common shares of the Company’s common stock. Accordingly, the Boreas Stockholders now own 98.93% of the Company’s 99,865,228 outstanding common shares. No finder’s fees were paid or consulting agreements entered into by the Company in connection with the transaction.

1. NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND PURCHASE OF TECHNOLOGY (cont’d)

 

b) Purchase of Technology License (cont’d)

 

Prior to the transaction, there were no material relationships between the Company and Boreas, between Boreas and the Company’s affiliates, directors or officers, or between any associates of Boreas and the Company’s officers or directors. All of the Company’s transaction liabilities were settled on or immediately following the Closing.

 

Upon the Closing on May 25, 2009, the Company was no longer deemed to be a “shell company” as defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”). Accordingly, the Company filed an amended current report on Form 8-K/A with the SEC on May 26, 2009, setting forth the information that would be required if the Company were filing a general form for registration of securities on Form 10 under the Exchange Act.

 

On April 18, 2011, First National Energy Corporation (the “Company”) entered into a Novation Agreement (the “Novation”) with all of the stockholders of Boreas revising the structure of the May 25, 2009 transaction by which the Company acquired a territorial license to certain rights in alternative energy technology of Boreas, in exchange for a quantity of newly issued common shares of the Company. The Novation amended the Technology License and Stock Purchase Agreement (the “Original Agreement”) to substitute the stockholders of Boreas as the licensor under the Original Agreement.

 

c) Further Purchase of Technology License

 

On March 22, 2010, Pavana Power Corporation (“Pavana”), a Nevada corporation, the Company’s 99.9% owned subsidiary, acquired an exclusive, territorial, 25-year license for the Republic of India (“India”), from Boreas, pursuant to which the Company’s subsidiary acquired technology rights for India in the technology of Boreas that maximizes the energy productivity of existing wind turbines by capturing energy that flows through and underneath existing wind turbine systems. The consideration due from the Company’s subsidiary to Boreas for the license is a deferred cash payment of $600,000, and a future royalty equal to 5% of the subsidiary’s “EBITDA” (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) from exploitation of the acquired license.

 

2. GOING CONCERN

 

The Company’s consolidated financial statements are prepared using accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and applicable to a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. However, the Company has not generated any revenues from its planned principal operations through September 30, 2017 and has recorded losses since inception, has negative working capital, has yet to achieve profitable operations and expects further losses in the development of its business. There can be no assurance that the Company will have adequate capital resources to fund planned operations or that any additional funds will be available to the Company when needed, or if available, will be available on favorable terms in the amounts required by the Company. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Management has plans to raise cash through debt offerings once the sales of the technologies begin. The facilities and equipment required for successfully completing the business model have been identified but until the resources are available, have not been acquired or engaged. In the period prior to the onset of operations, the Company will undertake to raise further cash through further capital offerings. There is no assurance that the Company will be successful in raising additional capital.

3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

a) Basis of Presentation and Consolidation

 

The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements include the accounts of First National Energy Corporation, its wholly-owned subsidiary First National Energy (Canada) Corporation and its 99.99% owned subsidiary Pavana Power Corporation. All material inter-company amounts have been eliminated.

 

The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8-03 of Regulation S-X related to smaller reporting companies.

 

The unaudited interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and Notes thereto together with management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations contained in the Company’s annual report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2016. In the opinion of management, the accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments of a normal recurring nature considered necessary to fairly state the financial position of the Company at September 30, 2017, the results of its operations for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, and its cash flows for the three months ended September 30, 2017 and 2016. In addition, some of the Company’s statements in its quarterly report on Form 10-Q may be considered forward-looking and involve risks and uncertainties that could significantly impact expected results. The results of operations for the three months ended September 30, 2017 are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full year.

 

b) 2016 Omnibus Equity Compensation Plan

 

On February 1, 2016, the Board of Directors approved the 2016 Omnibus Equity Compensation Plan (“Stock Option Plan”) for employees and non-employees. The Stock Option Plan reserves up to five million shares of common stock for issuance.

 

All awards granted to employees and non-employees after February 1, 2016 are valued at fair value by using the Black-Scholes option pricing model and recognized on a straight line basis over the service periods of each award. The Company accounts for equity instruments issued in exchange for the receipt of goods or services from other than employees using the estimated fair market value of the consideration received or the estimated fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. The value of equity instruments issued for consideration other than employee services is determined on the earlier of a performance commitment or completion of performance by the provider of goods or services.

 

If there is a modification of the terms of an award, either by repricing or extending the expiry of the award, the award is re-measured. If the modification results in an increase in the fair value of the new award as compared to the old award immediately prior to the modification, the excess fair value is recognized as compensation expense.

 

As of September 30, 2017, there was $nil of recognized expense related to non-vested stock-based compensation arrangements granted.

5. INTANGIBLE ASSET

 

Effective February 5, 2016, the Company acquired VAWT/VRTB/Bolotov Rotor wind turbine technology (“Technology”) from Bolotov and affiliates (“Serge Bolotov”). The technical and intellectual property were designed, patented, developed and manufactured by Serge Bolotov.

 

The Company valued this technology under the guidance of ASC 350, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other which states that an intangible asset that is acquired either individually or with a group of other assets shall be initially measured based on its fair value. As there is no active market and the future cash flows and economic viability of this intellectual property are uncertain and cannot be measured reliably, no value was assigned to the technology.

 

The future compensation to Serge Bolotov consists of:

 

  - 10% of all profits generated by sale of this technology as royalties
     
  - A purchase bonus of $1,000,000 to be paid out of 11% of the net profits from the intellectual property. (See also note 11)

 

In the event the Company or a related or assigned party does not use the assets transferred in the transaction within a period of 3 years from the date the memorandum of understanding was accepted as a final agreement on February 5th 2016, Serge Bolotov will have the right, but not the obligation, to purchase all unused assets, following ten days written notice to the Company or a related or assigned party for the amount of US $5,000.

 

6. LOAN PAYABLE TO RELATED PARTY

 

On March 22, 2010, the Company acquired an exclusive territorial 25 year Supplemental Wind Energy Generator (“SWEG”) Technology license for the Republic of India (“India”), from Boreas. The stockholders of Boreas hold a controlling interest in the Company. The technology of Boreas maximizes the energy productivity of existing wind turbines by capturing energy that flows through an underneath existing wind turbine systems. The consideration due from the Company to Boreas was a deferred cash payment of $600,000, and a future royalty equal to 5% of the subsidiary’s “EBITDA” (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization) from exploitation of the acquired license.

 

On November 8, 2010, the subsidiary paid Boreas $60,000 as a payment due under the India technology license agreement, leaving a balance of cash consideration due of $540,000. The remaining debt is non-interest bearing and is due on demand.

c) Effective February 1, 2016, the Company executed an agreement with legal counsel to pay a monthly fee of $2,500 commencing February 1, 2016 with respect to legal matters of securities regulation, private placements, corporate governance, and related matters in connection with the Company. The two parties reserve the right to terminate or withdraw from the agreement at any time.
   
d) Pursuant to Note 1 (b), under the Technology License and Stock Purchase Agreement signed with Boreas, the Company agreed to pay certain future royalties to Boreas from net future revenues realized by the Company from the technology license.

 

11. CAPITAL MANAGEMENT

 

The Company’s capital management objective is to secure the ability to continue as a going concern and to optimize the cost of capital in order to enhance value to shareholders. As part of this objective, the Company seeks to maintain access to loan and capital markets at all times. The Board of Directors reviews the capital structure of the Group on a regular basis.

 

Capital structure and debt capacity are taken into account when deciding new investments and the Company may consider share buybacks and share issuances as other strategies. Debt capital is managed considering the requirement to secure liquidity and the capability to refinance maturing debt.

 

On September 30, 2017, the Company had no interest-bearing debt.

 

12. FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

The Company is exposed to risks that arise from its use of financial instruments. This note describes the Company’s objectives, policies and processes for managing those risks and the methods used to measure them.

 

Foreign exchange risk:

 

The Company’s subsidiary conducts its activities in Canadian dollars. The Company is therefore subject to gains or losses due to fluctuations in Canadian currency relative to the US dollar. The Company has no exposure to this given its limited activity and assets through the year.

 

Liquidity risk:

 

The Company monitors its liquidity position regularly to assess whether it has the funds necessary to fulfill planned commitments on its alternative energy technology or viable options are available to fund such commitments from new equity issuance or alternative sources such as debt financing. However, without significant internally generated cash flow, there are inherent liquidity risks, including the possibility that additional financing may not be available to the Company, or that actual development expenditures may exceed those planned. The current uncertainty in global markets could have an impact on the Company’s future ability to access capital on terms that are acceptable to the Company. The company has so far been able to raise the required financing to meet its obligations on time. The Company continues to pursue potential investees and have already secured additional equity financing from investors subsequent to the period end.

Description of Business

 

Business Development

 

We were incorporated as Capstone International Corporation on November 16, 2000, in the State of Delaware, and our shares were registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form SB-2 as SEC File No. 333-62588, filed on September 8, 2001. Our name was changed to “First National Power Corporation” on January 28, 2004, and was changed again to “First National Energy Corporation” on February 12, 2009, at which time we affected a reverse stock split, adopted a holding company structure, and relocated our corporate charter from Delaware to Nevada as part of the reorganization described in the next succeeding paragraph.

 

As described in the definitive information statement on Form DEF 14-C filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 22, 2008, and pursuant to the approval of our board of directors and a majority of its stockholders, on February 12, 2009, we effected a reorganization which had the effect of (1) implementing a reverse stock split of its issued and outstanding common shares at the rate of 100 to 1, thereby reducing the number of issued and outstanding common shares at that time from 76,522,760 to 765,228, with no effect on the number of authorized common shares; (2) merging our company with and into First National Power Corporation, a Nevada corporation and a wholly-owned indirect (second tier) subsidiary of our company , such that First National Energy Corporation, a Nevada corporation and a wholly-owned direct (first tier) subsidiary of our company, succeeded as a successor issuer of its registered securities and continued our business for all purposes; (3) exchanging each issued and outstanding share on the record date (and after giving effect to the reverse stock split described above) into one new common share of the successor issuer ; (4) re-domesticating the our charter from the State of Delaware to the State of Nevada; (5) increasing the authorized capital from 100 million common shares to 300 million common shares; (6) changing our name from “First National Power Corporation” to “First National Energy Corporation”; and (7) changing our stock symbol from FNPR to FNEC.

 

On April 20, 2009, we acquired a territorial license to certain rights in alternative wind energy technology in exchange for 98,800,000 newly issued common shares, which resulted in a change in control. We valued the technology license received in such transaction at $1,855,605 after consulting with an outside valuation expert.

 

On April 18, 2011, we entered into a Novation Agreement (the “Novation”) with all of the stockholders of Boreas Research Corporation (“Boreas”), a Florida corporation, revising the structure of the April 20, 2009 transaction by which we acquired a territorial license to certain rights in alternative energy technology of Boreas, in exchange for 98,800,000 of our common shares as disclosed above. The Novation amended the 2009 agreement to substitute the stockholders of Boreas as the licensor under the original 2009 agreement.

 

In addition, we acquired technology rights to an additional territory for the licensed technology through a wholly-owned subsidiary, Pavana Power Corporation.

 

Business of Issuer

 

Since acquiring the technology license described above, our management has expended significant time seeking sources of capital to implement our business plan, which is primarily designed to exploit the licensed technology throughout the United States and Canada for commercial gain. In addition, we have acquired technology rights to an additional territory for the licensed technology. Management is also evaluating other alternatives in order to improve our financial condition, including merger and acquisition opportunities. There is no assurance that we will be successful in raising capital or closing any such merger or acquisition transactions.

Except as described above and as more particularly described in our accompanying interim financial statements, there have been no other material changes in our financial condition from the end of the preceding fiscal year to the date of the interim balance sheet provided herein, nor have there been any other material changes in the registrant’s financial condition during the period ending on the date of the interim balance sheet provided herein and commencing on the corresponding interim date of the preceding fiscal year. Except as described above and as more particularly described in our accompanying interim financial statements, there have been no material changes in our results of operations with respect to the most recent fiscal year-to-date period for which an income statement is provided and the corresponding year-to-date period of the preceding fiscal year.

 

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

The consolidated financial statements of our company are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses reported in our financial statements are affected by accounting policies, estimates and assumptions that are necessary to comply with generally accepted accounting principles. Estimates used in the financial statements are derived from prior experience, statistical analysis and professional judgments. Actual results may differ significantly from these estimates and assumptions.

 

Management considers an estimate to be critical if it is material to the financial statements and it requires assumptions to be made that were uncertain at the time the estimate was made and changes in the estimate are reasonably likely to occur from period to period.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements.

 

See Note 1, Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements, of the Notes to the accompanying interim financial statements, included in Item 1 of this report, for recently issued accounting pronouncements.

 

Plan of Operation

 

Since acquiring the technology license described above, our management has expended significant time seeking sources of capital to implement its business plan, which is primarily designed to exploit the licensed technology throughout the United States and Canada for commercial gain. In addition, we have acquired technology rights to an additional territory for the licensed technology through Pavana Power Corporation, a Nevada corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary that was organized on April 21, 2011. There is no assurance that the Registrant will be successful in raising capital or closing any such merger or acquisition transactions.

 

Results of Operations

 

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2017, compared to the Nine Months Ended September 30, 2016

 

Assets

 

Licensed technology assets, net of amortization, were unchanged at $200.

 

Revenues

 

We did not generate any operating revenues in the nine months ended September 30, 2017.

 

Costs and Expenses

 

Amortization of Acquired Technology

 

 Page 15 
 

 

There was no amortization of our technology assets during the nine months ended September 30, 2017, as compared to $-0- during the comparable period in 2016.

 

General and Administrative

 

Operating expenses increased to $24,240 during the nine months ended September 30, 2017, as compared to $16,024 during the comparable period in 2016.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Cash was $1674 at September 30, 2017, compared to $1,059 at December 31, 2016.

 

Total operating expenses were $24,240 during the nine months ended September 30, 2017 compared to $16,024 at September 30, 2016.

 

We generated $40,214 from financing activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2017 compared to $9,682 during the comparable period in 2016 due to additional funding by a shareholder. In the nine months ended September 30, 2017, management also closed a private placement for $20,000 (net of financing) as additional funding.

 

Our Company is a development stage company and have not generated any operating revenues as of September 30, 2017. In addition, we will continue to incur net losses and cash flow deficiencies from operating activities for the foreseeable future.

 

Based on its cash flow projections, we will need additional financing to carry out its planned business activities and complete its plan of operations through December 31, 2017. At our Company’s present level of activities, our Company’s cash is considered insufficient and this draws a substantial doubt as to our Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

Much of our ability to raise additional capital or secure a strategic collaboration for the financing of our continued operations and product development will depend substantially on the successful outcome of our efforts to negotiate joint venture with wind power industry participants, the results of which will not be available until sometime later in the current fiscal year. We are also currently seeking to raise funds through corporate collaboration and sub-licensing arrangements in connection with its ongoing and long-term operations. Management does not know whether additional financing will be available when needed or, if available, will be on acceptable or favorable terms to it or its stockholders.

 

Our Company’s independent registered public accounting firm expressed substantial doubt about our Company’s ability to continue as a going concern in the audit report on our Company’s audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2016 included in the 2016 Form 10-K and in the footnotes to these unaudited interim financial statements for the quarter ended September 30, 2017.

 

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 are material to investors.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As of September 30, 2017, the Registrant carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Registrant’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined by Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) under the supervision and with the participation of the Registrant’s chief executive and chief financial officer. Based on and as of the date of such evaluation, the aforementioned officer has concluded that the Registrant’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective.

 

The Registrant also maintains a system of internal accounting controls that is designed to provide assurance that assets are safeguarded and that transactions are executed in accordance with management’s authorization and properly recorded. This system is continually reviewed and is augmented by written policies and procedures, the careful selection and training of qualified personnel and an internal audit program to monitor its effectiveness.

 

Changes In Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

 

During the interim period ended September 30, 2017, there were no changes to this system of internal controls or in other factors that could significantly affect those controls.
