Notes to Condensed Financial Statements (Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

 

The condensed balance sheet of Thunderclap Entertainment, Inc. (the “Company”) as of June 30, 2017, and the condensed statements of operations for the three-month and six-month period ended June 30, 2017 and the three-month and six-month period ended June 30, 2016, have not been audited. However, in the opinion of management, such information includes all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring adjustments), which are necessary to properly reflect the financial position of the Company as of June 30, 2017, and the results of operations for the three-months and six-months ended June 30, 2017 and for the three-months and six-months ended June 30, 2016.

 

Certain information and notes normally included in condensed financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been condensed or omitted, although management believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. Interim period results are not necessarily indicative of the results to be achieved for an entire year. These condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes to financial statements as of December 31, 2016 and calendar year then ended.

 

NOTE 2 - NATURE OF BUSINESS

 

 

The Company was incorporated under the laws of the state of California on September 10, 2009, under the name Thunderclap Entertainment, Inc. The Company has limited operations and has been pursuing a business plan as a producer of low-budget motion pictures and other entertainment content. To date, its business activities have been limited to the research of film scripts and other entertainment related projects and raising capital. The Company has not yet realized any revenues from its operations. The Company is also evaluating various acquisition opportunities and is in discussions with several entertainment and non-entertainment companies for projects and joint ventures and acquisitions.

 

NOTE 3 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed financial statements as of and for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2017 have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and notes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting only of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. The accompanying unaudited financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s 2016 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 23, 2017.

 

Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with maturity of three months or less when purchased to be cash equivalents. The Company does not have any cash equivalents as of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016.

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 certain reported amounts and disclosures. Accordingly, actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company uses the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes in accordance with ASC 740-10, “Accounting for Income Taxes.” Under this method, income tax expense is recognized for the amount of: (i) taxes payable or refundable for the current year; and, (ii) deferred tax consequences of temporary differences resulting from matters that have been recognized in an entity’s financial statements or tax returns. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in the results of operations in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is provided to reduce the deferred tax assets reported if, based on the weight of available positive and negative evidence, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

ASC 740-10 prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition of a tax position taken or expected to be taken on a tax return. Under ASC 740-10, a tax benefit from an uncertain tax position taken or expected to be taken may be recognized only if it is “more likely than not” that the position is sustainable upon examination, based on its technical merits. The tax benefit of a qualifying position under ASC 740-10 would equal the largest amount of tax benefit that is greater than 50% likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement with a taxing authority having full knowledge of all the relevant information. A liability (including interest and penalties, if applicable) is established to the extent a current benefit has been recognized on a tax return for matters that are considered contingent upon the outcome of an uncertain tax position. Related interest and penalties, if any, are included as components of income tax expense and income taxes payable.

 

As of January 1, 2017, we have analyzed filing positions in each of the federal and state jurisdictions where we are required to file income tax returns, as well as all open tax years in these jurisdictions. We have identified the U.S. federal and California as our “major” tax jurisdictions. Generally, we remain subject to Internal Revenue Service examination of our 2009 through 2016 California Franchise Tax Returns. However, we have certain tax attribute carry forwards, which will remain subject to review and adjustment by the relevant tax authorities until the statute of limitations closes with respect to the year in which such attributes are utilized.

 

We believe that our income tax filing positions and deductions will be sustained on audit and do not anticipate any adjustments that will result in a material change to our financial position. Therefore, no reserves for uncertain income tax position have been recorded pursuant to ASC 740. In addition, we did not record a cumulative effect adjustment related to the adoption of ASC 740. Related interest and penalties, if any, are included as components of income tax expense and income taxes payable.

 

Loss per Share

 

The Company’s basic income or loss per share is calculated by dividing its net income or loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. The Company’s dilutive income or loss per share is calculated by dividing its net income or loss available to common shareholders by the diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period. The diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding is the basic weighted number of shares adjusted for any potentially dilutive debt or equity.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

The Company’s financial instruments as defined by FASB ASC 825, “Financial Instruments” include cash, trade accounts receivable, and accounts payable and accrued expenses. All instruments are accounted for on a historical cost basis, which, due to the short maturity of these financial instruments, approximates fair value at June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016.

 

7
  

 

THUNDERCLAP ENTERTAINMENT, INC.

 

FASB ASC 820 “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. ASC 820 establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

 

  Level 1. Observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets;
       
  Level 2. Inputs, other than the quoted prices in active markets, that are observable either directly or indirectly; and
       
  Level 3. Unobservable inputs in which there is little or no market data, which requires the reporting entity to develop its own assumptions.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

We have adopted all recently issued accounting pronouncements. The adoption of the accounting pronouncements is not anticipated to have a material effect on our operations.

 

NOTE 4–STOCKHOLDERS’ DEFICIT

 

 

The Company was formed with one class of common stock, no par value and is authorized to issue 50,000,000 common shares and 10,000,000 preferred shares. Voting rights are not cumulative and, therefore, the holders of more than 50% of the common stock could, if they chose to do so, elect all the directors of the Company.

 

As of June 30, 2017, there are 16,485,000 shares of common stock outstanding.

 

NOTE 5–RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

 

The sole officer and director of the Company is involved in other business activities and may, in the future, become involved in other business opportunities. If a specific business opportunity becomes available, he may face a conflict in selecting between the Company and his other business interests. The Company has not formulated a policy for the resolution of such conflicts.

 

The Company’s majority shareholder is its legal counsel. During the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, this shareholder advanced $5,500 and $4,600, respectively. These advances are unsecured and do not carry an interest rate or repayment terms; however, the shareholder has agreed not to seek repayment until the Company is financially able to repay it.

 

The Company does not own any property. It previously leased an office from a third party at 201 Santa Monica Blvd., Suite 300, Santa Monica, California 90401-2224. Its principal shareholder and legal counsel also use this location. Commencing April 1, 2011, the Company’s legal counsel provides it with office space, on a month-to-month basis, for no charge. The estimated cost of the space he provides is $100 per month. Its executive officer, Gary L. Blum, also works from this location and also maintains an office in Los Angeles, CA. For the three months and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, the Company recorded rent expense of $300 and $600, respectively in each of those periods.

THUNDERCLAP ENTERTAINMENT, INC.

 

NOTE 6–GOING CONCERN

 

 

The Company’s financial statements are prepared using GAAP, which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has not yet established a source of revenues to cover its operating costs and allow it to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company obtaining adequate capital to fund operating losses until it becomes profitable. If the Company is unable to obtain adequate capital, it could be forced to cease operations.

 

Management intends to focus on raising additional funds for the first and second quarters going forward. We cannot provide any assurance or guarantee that we will be able to generate revenues. Potential investors must be aware if we are unable to raise additional funds through the sale of our common stock and generate sufficient revenues, any investment made into the Company would be lost in its entirety.

 

The Company has accumulated deficit as of to June 30, 2017 of $228,290. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to successfully accomplish the plans described in the preceding paragraph and eventually secure other sources of financing and attain profitable operations. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

NOTE 7 – COMMITMENT

 

 

The Company does not own any property. It previously leased an office from a third party at 201 Santa Monica Blvd., Suite 300, Santa Monica, California 90401-2224. Its principal shareholder and legal counsel also use this location. Commencing April 1, 2011, the Company’s legal counsel provides it with office space, on a month-to-month basis, for no charge. The estimated cost of the space he provides is $100 per month. The Company recorded rent expense of $300 and $300 for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively and $600 and $600 for the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively.

Forward Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in Item 2 of Part I of this report include forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (collectively, the “Reform Act”). The Reform Act provides a safe harbor for forward-looking statements to encourage companies to provide prospective information about themselves so long as they identify these statements as forward-looking and provide meaningful cautionary statements identifying important factors that could cause actual results to differ from the projected results. All statements, other than statements of historical fact that we make in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are forward-looking. The words “anticipates,” “believes,” “expects,” “intends,” “will continue,” “estimates,” “plans,” “projects,” the negative of these terms and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. However, the absence of these words does not mean the statement is not forward-looking.

 

Forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties or other factors which may cause actual results to differ materially from the future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. These statements are based on our management’s beliefs and assumptions, which in turn are based on currently available information. Certain risks, uncertainties or other important factors are detailed in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and may be detailed from time to time in other reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including on Forms 8-K and 10-K.

 

Examples of forward looking statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q include, but are not limited to, our expectations regarding our ability to generate operating cash flows and to fund our working capital and capital expenditure requirements. Important assumptions relating to the forward-looking statements include, among others, assumptions regarding demand for our future products, the timing and cost of capital expenditures, competitive conditions and general economic conditions. These assumptions could prove inaccurate. Although we believe that the estimates and projections reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, our expectations may prove to be incorrect. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results and events anticipated or implied by such forward-looking statements include:

 

  management’s plans, objectives and budgets for its future operations and future economic performance;
  capital budget and future capital requirements;
  meeting future capital needs;
  our dependence on management and the need to recruit additional personnel;
  limited trading for our common stock, if listed or quoted
  the level of future expenditures;
  impact of recent accounting pronouncements;
  the outcome of regulatory and litigation matters; and
  the assumptions described in this report underlying such forward-looking statements. Actual results and developments may materially differ from those expressed in or implied by such statements due to a number of factors, including:
  those described in the context of such forward-looking statements;
  future product development and marketing costs;
  timely development and acceptance of our film or television projects;
  the markets of our domestic operations;
  the impact of competitive products and pricing;
  the political, social and economic climate in which we conduct operations; and
  the risk factors described in other documents and reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Registration Statement on Form S-1 (SEC File No. 333-172658).

 

We operate in a very competitive and rapidly changing environment. New risks emerge from time to time. It is not possible for us to predict all of those risks, nor can we assess the impact of all of those risks on our business or the extent to which any factor may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. We believe these forward-looking statements are reasonable. However, you should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which are based on current expectations. Further, forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and unless required by law, we expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to update publicly any of them in light of new information or future events.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Conditions and Results of Operations

 

The following is management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations and is provided as a supplement to the accompanying unaudited financial statements and notes to help provide an understanding of our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows during the periods included in the accompanying unaudited financial statements.

 

In this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, “Company,” “the Company,” “us,” and “our” refer to Thunderclap Entertainment, Inc., a California corporation, unless the context requires otherwise.

 

We intend the following discussion to assist in the understanding of our financial position and our results of operations for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2017 and June 30, 2016. You should refer to the Financial Statements and related Notes in conjunction with this discussion.

 

Results of Operations

 

General

 

We were incorporated under the laws of the State of California on September 10, 2009 with fiscal year end in December 31. We are an enterprise that seeks to become an independent film production company, to develop and produce low-budget, independent feature films under $2,000,000. Since beginning operations in September 2009, we have not developed or produced any films and we have accumulated losses in the amount of ($228,290) as of June 30, 2017. We have never been party to any bankruptcy, receivership or similar proceeding, nor have we undergone any material reclassification, merger, consolidation, purchase or sale of a significant amount of assets not in the ordinary course of business.

 

We have yet to commence planned operations to any significant measure. As of the date of this Quarterly Report, we have not generated any revenues. We will not be profitable until we derive sufficient revenues and cash flows from the development, production and sale of film projects or acquire a profitable business. We are actively evaluating several business opportunities that we may acquire. Our chief executive officer and sole director, Gary L. Blum, is our only employee. Mr. Blum will devote at least ten hours per week to us but may increase the number of hours as necessary.

 

As of June 30, 2017, we had $107 cash on hand and in the bank. Management does not believe this amount will satisfy our cash requirements for the next three months. We plan to satisfy our future cash requirements - primarily the working capital required for operations by loans from our shareholders or additional equity financing. The additional equity financings will likely be in the form of private placements of common stock. As of June 30, 2017, the Company borrowed $67,047 from two of its shareholders and, as of the date of this Report, has borrowed $69,147.

 

Management believes that if subsequent private placements are successful, we will generate sales revenue within the following twelve months thereof. However, additional equity financing may not be available to us on acceptable terms or at all, and thus we could fail to satisfy our future cash requirements.

 

If we are unsuccessful in raising the additional proceeds through a private placement offering, we will then have to seek additional funds through debt financing, which would be highly difficult for us with nominal assets to secure. Therefore, we are highly dependent upon the success of a future private placement offering and failure thereof would result in our having to seek capital from other resources such as debt financing, which may not even be available to us. However, if such financing were available, because we have yet to generate any revenues, we would likely have to pay additional costs associated with high-risk loans and be subject to an above market interest rate. At such time these funds are required, management would evaluate the terms of such debt financing and determine whether the business could sustain operations and growth and manage the debt load. If we cannot raise additional proceeds via a private placement of our common stock or secure debt financing we would be required to cease business operations. As a result, investors in our common stock would lose all of their investment.

 

11
  

 

Thunderclap Entertainment, Inc.

 

While do not have any agreements to merge with any or acquire another entity; we intend to look at any opportunities that we believe will enhance our shareholders’ value and are exploring all available options including, but not limited to, acquiring other companies within and outside of the entertainment industry. We have held discussions with various companies and are evaluating our options at the present time.

 

We are exploring finaning options with various investors to obtain additional equity financing. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in obtaining additional capital from these negotiations. If are unable to raise additional capital, we will either suspend marketing operations until we do raise the cash, or cease operations entirely. Other than as described in this paragraph and the preceding paragraphs, we have no other financing plans.

 

Management does not plan to hire additional employees at this time.

 

Critical Accounting Policy and Estimates. Our Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations section discusses our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. On an on-going basis, management evaluates its estimates and judgments, including those related to revenue recognition, accrued expenses, financing operations, and contingencies and litigation. Management bases its estimates and judgments on historical experience and on various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. The most significant accounting estimates inherent in the preparation of our financial statements include estimates as to the appropriate carrying value of certain assets and liabilities which are not readily apparent from other sources. In addition, these accounting policies are described at relevant sections in this discussion and analysis and in the notes to the financial statements included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

 

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our unaudited condensed financial statements for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, together with notes thereto, which are included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

Operating expenses. Operating expenses include general and administrative expenses, professional fees, and rent expense. In total, operating expenses increased $1,875, or 138.89%, to $3,225 for the three months ended June 30, 2017 from $1,350 for the three months ended June 30, 2016. The components of operating expenses are discussed below.

 

  General and administrative expenses increased by $825 to $825 for the three months ended June 30, 2017 compared to $0 for the comparable period in 2016. The increase is attributable to the payment of a $25 state filing fees and the accrual of $800 for state income taxes in 2017.
     
  Professional fees increased by $1,050, or 100.00%, to $2,100 for the three months ended June 30, 2017 from $1,050 for the comparable period in 2016. The increase is attributable to an increase in our accounting fees.
     
  Rent expense remained constant at $300 for the three-months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the comparable period in 2016. This is attributable to the imputed rent expense that we recognize as additional paid-in capital and not based on actual rent we pay.

 

Net Loss. Our net loss increased $1,875, or 138.89% to $3,225 for the three months ended June 30, 2017 from $1,350 for the comparable period in 2016. The increase is primarily attributable as discussed above.

 

Six months ended June 30, 2017 compared with the six months ended June 30, 2016

Operating expenses. Operating expenses include general and administrative expenses, professional fees, and rent expense. In total, operating expenses increased $1,003, or 19.58%, to $6,125 for the six months ended June 30, 2017 from $5,122 for the six months ended June 30, 2016. The components of operating expenses are discussed below.

 

  General and administrative expenses decreased by $22, or 2.60%, for the six months ended June 30, 2017 to $825 from $847 for the comparable period in 2016. The decrease between 2017 and 2016 is primarily attributable to the payment of a state tax penalty in 2016.
     
  Professional fees increased by $1,025, or 27.89%, to $4,700 for the six months ended June 30, 2017 from $3,675 for the comparable period in 2016. The increase between 2017 and 2016 is attributable to an increase in our accounting fees.
     
  Rent expense remained constant at $600 for the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to the comparable period in 2016. This is attributable to the imputed rent expense that we recognize as additional paid-in capital and not based on actual rent we pay.

 

Net Loss. Our net loss increased $1,003, or 19.58% to $6,125 for the six months ended June 30, 2017 from $5,122 for the comparable period in 2016. The increase is attributable as discussed above.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources. In 2017, we did not issue any shares for capital. For the six months ended June 30, 2017, our majority shareholder loaned us $5,500. We intend to seek additional financing for our working capital, in the form of equity or debt, to provide us with the necessary capital to accomplish our plan of operation. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in our efforts to raise additional capital.

 

Our total assets are $107 as of June 30, 2017, consisting of $107 in cash. Our working capital deficit was $67,740 as of June 30, 2017.

 

Our total liabilities are $67,847 as of June 30, 2017, consisting of $67,847 in current liabilities, which is comprised of advances from shareholders of $67,047 and $800 in accrued state income taxes for 2017.

 

As of June 30, 2017, our total stockholders’ deficit is $67,740 and our accumulated deficit is $228,290.

 

We had $5,547 in net cash used by operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2017, which included $6,125 in net loss, which amount was offset by $600 in rent expense and decreased $22 by accounts payable.

 

We had no cash provided by investing activities in the six months ended June 30, 2017.

 

We had $5,500 cash provided by financing activities for the six months ended June 30, 2017.

 

We do not now have funds sufficient for pursuing our plan of operation, but we are in the process of trying to procure funds sufficient to fund our operations until we are able to finance our operations through cash flow. There can be no assurance that we will be able to procure funds sufficient for such purpose. If operating difficulties or other factors (many of which are beyond our control) delay our realization of revenues or cash flows from operations, we may be limited in our ability to pursue our business plan. Moreover, if our resources from obtaining additional capital or cash flows from operations, once we commence them, do not satisfy our operational needs or if unexpected expenses arise due to unanticipated pressures or if we decide to expand our business plan beyond its currently anticipated level or otherwise, we will require additional financing to fund our operations, in addition to anticipated cash generated from our operations. Additional financing might not be available on terms favorable to us, or at all. If adequate funds were not available or were not available on acceptable terms, our ability to fund our operations, take advantage of unanticipated opportunities, develop or enhance our business or otherwise respond to competitive pressures would be significantly limited. In a worst-case scenario, we might not be able to fund our operations or to remain in business, which could result in a total loss of our stockholders’ investment. If we raise additional funds through the issuance of equity or convertible debt securities, the percentage ownership of our stockholders would be reduced, and these newly issued securities might have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing stockholders.

 

The Company had no formal long-term lines or credit or other bank financing arrangements as of June 30, 2017.

The Company has no current plans for the purchase or sale of any plant or equipment.

 

The Company has no current plans to make any changes in the number of employees.

 

Impact of Inflation

 

The Company believes that inflation has had a negligible effect on operations over the past quarter.

 

Capital Expenditures

 

The Company expended no amounts on capital expenditures for the three months ended June 30, 2017 and June 30, 2016, respectively.

 

Plan of Operation

 

Our business strategy is to continue to market our website (www.thunderclapinc.com), which we believe is currently functional and can be used by writers and others to submit treatments, screenplays and other ideas for production. If we are able to obtain financing in 2017, we intend to aggressively promote ourselves using social media. We believe that we can attract some projects screenplays, treatments and other entertainment related projects to review and evaluate. We also intend to contact various production companies and discuss ways that we can work together to raise capital for their projects. We intend to exclusively own all right, title and interest in and to the underlying screenplay and any film derived from it.

 

The number of screenplays to which we will be able to secure production rights during the development stage will depend upon the success of securing financing for each project. We intend to develop at least one screenplay based on the submissions we anticipate being uploaded to our website. There are currently no agreements in place between any funding sources and us to produce any submissions. There can be no guarantee we will have enough funds to secure the rights of any screenplay in the future. We have had numerous discussions with various producers and writers and intend to joint venture or co-produce projects with them based on our ability to bring financing to the projects.

 

We intend to implement the following tasks within the next twelve months if we can obtain the required financing:

 

Website: (Estimated cost to complete $1,000). Developing some additional features to our website is to reach prospective screenwriters as well as industry professionals. We believe our enhanced website, www.thunderclapinc.com, will be designed to generate interest in our production concept as well as attracting new writing talent.

 

Secure Rights to Screenplay: (Estimated cost $10,000). We estimate that we can secure the rights to a screenplay based on the discussions we have had with various producers in 2016. We will attempt to acquire any screenplay rights with the issuance of our common stock to the writer.

 

Pre-Production Business Plan: (Estimated cost - None). Our chief executive and sole director will complete this without compensation. Once we complete the above tasks, we estimate completing a pre-production business plan by the end of the second quarter of 2017. This pre-production business plan together with the preliminary screenplay, budget, shooting schedule, production board and any talent commitment will be presented to prospective directors, actors, investors and/or financiers by our management.

 

If we can successfully complete the above goals within the estimated timeframes set forth and are able to raise additional proceeds above the minimum ($10,000) that may be needed to secure the screenplay, those funds would be allocated as follows:

 

Retain Screen Writer: (Estimated cost $10,000). After a screenplay has been secured, we estimate an additional three months thereafter would be required to secure a screenwriter. We intend to pay for this expense from the funding source for the production.

 

Completion of Screenplay: (Estimated cost $10,000). We believe the screenplay can be finalized within three months.

 

Secure Director, Actor(s) and Supporting Cast for Film Production: (Estimated cost $75,000- $125,000); this fee may be secured with issuance of our common or preferred stock; however, management cannot predict now if our common or preferred stock will be attractive to secure the above personnel. We believe this can be completed within 30-45 days after the screenplay has been written.

The following steps would require additional financing from a third-party source or from the issuance of our common or preferred stock in the future. We believe if we can complete the above goals we would be able to obtain additional financing to complete the below tasks within the specified timeframe; however, there can be no guarantee or assurance that we will be successful in completing any of the above described tasks.

 

Secure Financing: We cannot provide any estimated cost for the financing aspect of the film, as there are multiple variables to financing the film. See “Financing Strategy” in the Description of Business section set forth below. We anticipate that we will be in discussions regarding the financing of a film, with various potential investors and/or participants, as soon as we identify a viable screenplay.

 

Film/Production: We plan to focus its business on the development and production of commercial feature-length motion pictures having budgets of up to $2 million. Estimated time to complete filming and production is estimated at nine to twelve months.

 

Secure Distribution Agreements: (Estimated cost $2,500). Upon completion of the film/production process we plan to seek and secure distribution agreements and/or market the projects to foreign sales agents and distributors ourselves.

 

Our management does not anticipate the need to hire additional full or part-time employees over the next six (6) months, as the services provided by our chief executive and director appear sufficient now. We believe that our operations are currently on a small scale that is manageable by him. Currently, our management’s responsibilities are mainly administrative and focused on project development. While we believe that the addition of employees is not required over the next six (6) months, the professionals we plan to utilize will be considered independent contractors. We do not intend to execute any employment agreements with any of these professionals. Thus, these persons are not intended to be our employees.

 

Our management does not expect to incur research costs in the next twelve months. We currently do not own any plants or equipment and we do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements. We have not paid for any expenses on behalf of our director or officers. We believe that this fact shall not materially any time soon.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

None.

 

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES

 

Our financial statements and related public financial information are based on the application of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”). GAAP requires the use of estimates; assumptions, judgments and subjective interpretations of accounting principles that have an impact on the assets, liabilities, revenues and expense amounts reported. These estimates can also affect supplemental information contained in our external disclosures including information regarding contingencies, risk and financial condition. We believe our use of estimates and underlying accounting assumptions adhere to GAAP and are consistently and conservatively applied. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ materially from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We continue to monitor significant estimates made during the preparation of our financial statements.

 

Use of Estimates:

 

Areas where significant estimation judgments are made and where actual results could differ materially from these estimates are the carrying value of certain assets and liabilities which are not readily apparent from other sources and the classification of net operating loss and tax credit carry forwards.

 

We believe the following is among the most critical accounting policies that impact our financial statements:

Thunderclap Entertainment, Inc.

 

We evaluate impairment of our long-lived assets by applying the provisions of SFAS No. 144. In applying those provisions, we have not recognized any impairment charge on our long-lived assets during the three-months ended June 30, 2017.

 

We suggest that our significant accounting policies, as described in our financial statements in the Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, be read in conjunction with this Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

As a “smaller reporting company” as defined by Item 10 of Regulation S-K, we are not required to provide information required by this item.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We conducted an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as amended (the “Exchange Act”)). Based on this evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the fiscal quarter covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q were effective at a reasonable assurance level to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms.

 

(b) Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting

 

During the three-month period ended June 30, 2017, there has been no change in internal control over financial reporting that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

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.

 

INHERENT LIMITATIONS OF INTERNAL CONTROLS

 

Our internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with the U.S. GAAP. Our internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that:

 

  pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets;
     
  provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with the U.S. GAAP, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of our management and directors; and
     
  provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Management does not expect that our internal controls will prevent or detect all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of internal controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected. Also, any evaluation of the effectiveness of controls in future periods are subject to the risk that those internal controls may become inadequate because of changes in business conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
