GEOBIO ENERGY, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES

(A Development Stage Company)

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the three and six months ended March 31, 2012

 

Note 1.  Business and Organization

 

GeoBio Energy, Inc. (“GeoBio” or the “Company”) formerly known as Better Biodiesel, Inc., was incorporated in Colorado in November 1990.  The Company was known as Mountain State Holdings, Inc., (“MSH”) until September 2006, when it was renamed in anticipation of a merger in September 2006, when it acquired all of the Member Units of Domestic Energy Partners, LLC, (“DEP”), a Utah limited liability corporation.  The previous assets and liabilities of MSH were spun off to two stockholders in August 2006 in exchange for the return of common shares.  At the time of the acquisition of DEP, the Company had no assets and no liabilities and 2,000,001 shares of common stock issued and outstanding carried at nil.

  

The merger of the Company and DEP was accounted for as a reverse merger. The assets and liabilities of DEP were presented in the condensed consolidated balance sheet at book value.  The historical operations presented in our consolidated statements of operations are those of DEP. On December 20, 2007, the Company entered into and closed an Asset Purchase, Settlement and Mutual Release Agreement with the former Members of DEP and effectively disposed of their interest in DEP.

 

In March 2008, we completed our Share Exchange with GeoAlgae Technologies, Inc. (“GeoAlgae”) and acquired GeoAlgae as a wholly owned subsidiary.  GeoAlgae was a recently formed company and its net assets at the date of acquisition were nil. The entire purchase price was allocated to intangible assets which in total constituted a business plan. The intangible assets were subsequently deemed to be impaired. GeoAlgae is not currently an operating company.

 

On November 14, 2011, we closed an equity purchase agreement with El Gas North America, Inc., a Washington limited liability company (“El Gas NA”), under which El Gas NA agreed to sell 100% of the issued and outstanding equity interests of El Gas NA for 2.5 million shares of common stock of the Company and a $100,000 promissory note. El Gas NA is a fully licensed and exclusive distributor of El Gas s.r.o’s natural gas volume monitoring and correcting equipment and data recorder products in the territories including the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean Islands. El Gas NA was only recently incorporated and its only asset is its exclusive distributer contract to distribute El Gas s.r.o’s natural gas volume monitoring and correcting equipment and data recorder products in territories previously listed. Given this, the Company has determined that this transaction is not a business combination for accounting purposes and has accounted for the transaction as the acquisition of an asset, i.e. the exclusive distribution agreement. See further discussion on the accounting in Note 3.

 

Note 2.  Going Concern

 

We have prepared our condensed consolidated financial statements assuming that we will continue as a going concern, which contemplate the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business.  As of March 31, 2012, we had a deficit accumulated during the development stage of approximately $29.2 million and expect to incur additional losses in the future. Our working capital deficit was approximately $4.9 million as of March 31, 2012. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

We have funded our losses primarily through sales of common stock and warrants in private placements and borrowings from related parties and other investors. The further development of our business will require capital. Our current cash levels are not sufficient to enable us to execute our business strategy. We require additional financing to satisfy our near-term working capital requirements. Our operating expenses will also consume a material amount of our cash resources. Company management intends to raise additional debt and equity financing to fund future operations and to provide additional working capital. However, there is no assurance that such financing will be obtained in sufficient amounts necessary to meet our needs. In the event that we cannot obtain additional funds, on a timely basis or our operations do not generate sufficient cash flow, we may be forced to curtail or cease our activities, which would likely result in the loss to investors of all or a substantial portion of their investment. We are actively seeking to raise additional capital through the sale of shares of our capital stock to institutional investors and through strategic investments, including convertible bridge loans. If management deems necessary, we might also seek additional loans from related parties or others. However, there can be no assurance that we will be able to consummate any of these transactions, or that these transactions will be consummated on a timely basis or on terms favorable to us. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and note disclosures required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. The accompanying unaudited financial information should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements, including the notes thereto, as of and for the year ended September 30, 2011, included in our 2011 Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). The information furnished in this report reflects all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments), which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair presentation of our financial position, results of operations and cash flows for each period presented. The results of operations for the interim periods ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results for the year ending September 30, 2012 or for any future period.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Net Loss Per Share

 

Basic and diluted net loss per common share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted loss per share excludes the effect of common stock equivalents (stock options, convertible debentures and warrants) since such inclusion in the computation would be anti-dilutive.

 

The following numbers of potential common shares have been excluded (as of March 31), in thousands:

 

   2012   2011 
         
Series A Preferred Stock   17,775    25,000 
Convertible debentures   31,428    1,350 
Warrants   6,042    - 
Options   3,807    - 
Total   59,052    26,350

In March 2008, we entered into a note payable with Tatum, LLC (“Tatum”) in settlement of approximately $28,000 then owed to Tatum for employment related consulting services previously recorded in accounts payable. The note payable is convertible at any time into shares of our common stock at the lesser of $4,125 per share or the 10-day volume weighted average of the closing bid and ask prices of our common stock. We have stated the amount in the table above at a conversion price of $4,125 per share.

 

The shares potentially issuable under our convertible promissory note with James Rodgers are included in the table above at March 31, 2012 at the stated conversion price of $0.01.

 

In February 2012, we entered into convertible notes payable with Ronald Tate and Ryan Wear, respectively. The notes are convertible at any time into shares of our common stock at a price per share equal to a 35% discount to the volume-weighted average closing per share price of the Company’s common stock on the OTC:QB or OTC:BB market for the 10 trading days immediately prior to either the maturity date or the conversion date, as applicable. We have stated the amount in the table above at a conversion price of $0.004 per share, which is the assumed conversion price at March 31, 2012 using this calculation methodology.

 

The shares potentially issuable under our convertible promissory notes with Ray Purdon are not included in the table above as the number of shares issuable on conversion is not determinable as of the date of this filing. The notes are convertible into shares of our common stock at a conversion rate to be mutually agreed upon by the holder and the Company on the date the holder elects to convert.

 

See further discussion regarding notes payable at Note 5.

 

Exclusive Distribution Agreement

As discussed in Note 1, in November 2011, the Company acquired the exclusive distribution rights to El Gas NA’s exclusive distributer contract to distribute El Gas s.r.o’s natural gas volume monitoring and correcting equipment and data recorder products in territories including the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean Islands. The term of the Exclusive Distribution Agreement is through December 31, 2013, with automatic, annual renewals unless cancelled by either party upon three month notice prior to the end of each term. The Company has estimated the useful life of the agreement to be five years. The Company issued 2,500,000 shares of its restricted common stock to acquire the exclusive distribution rights and an 8% promissory note with original principal value of $100,000. The distribution rights were recorded at the fair value of the promissory note of $100,000 plus the market value of the Company’s common stock on November 14, 2011 (closing date of the agreement) of $0.03 per share or $75,000, for a total of $175,000. The Company has not begun amortizing the exclusive distribution agreement because product sales have not yet commenced. The Company anticipates that product sales will commence in the third fiscal quarter of 2012. The Company expects that amortization expense will approximate $17,500 in fiscal year 2012 and $35,000 in each of the fiscal years 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016, respectively.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Our financial instruments consist of cash, accounts payable and accrued expenses, accrued payroll, convertible notes payable, notes payable to related parties, notes payable and advances.  We consider fair value to be an exit price representing the amount that would be received upon the sale of an asset or the transfer of a liability.  The fair value of financial instruments other than notes payable to related parties approximate the recorded value based on the short-term nature of these financial instruments. The fair value of notes payable to related parties is presently undeterminable due to the related party nature of the obligations.

Common Stock Issuances 

 

In October 2011, we entered into a consulting agreement with AGAPA Holdings, LLC. Under the agreement, we agreed to pay a non-refundable consulting fee of $5,500 and 50,000 shares of our common stock. The value of the shares of $500 based on the closing price of our common stock of $0.01 on the date of issuance was recorded to general and administrative expense during the six months ended March 31, 2012.

 

As discussed in Note 3, in November 2011, we issued 2,500,000 shares of our common to the principals of El Gas North America, LLC, pursuant to our acquisition of El Gas NA.

Stock Options —In 2011, we granted options outside of our 2002 Equity Incentive Plan to purchase an aggregate of 3,807,368 shares of our common stock at $0.03 per share to our CEO and CFO under the terms of their employment contract.  The option grants represented not less than 5.0% of the issued and outstanding capital stock of the Company on a non-dilutive basis, and the terms of the employment contract require adjustment of the actual number of options upward or downward in the event of an increase or decrease in the issued and outstanding capital stock of the Company following the grant date,  during the period commencing upon the grant date through and including the issuance of any securities in financing obtained subsequent to the grant date in excess of $5.0 million. The options were immediately vested at grant date, but forfeitable to the Company prior to their exercise in the event that the CEO and CFO terminate employment without cause during the term of the employment agreements.  The options have a five year term.   The intrinsic value of stock options outstanding and exercisable of nil at December 31, 2011 is based on the $0.006 closing market price of our common stock on that date, and the fact that the exercise price of all of the outstanding vested stock options is greater than $0.006.

  

Warrants As discussed in Note 5, under our promissory note agreement with Otto Capital, LLC, on January 9, 2012, we issued a three-year warrant to purchase 133,333 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.03 per share.  The warrants expire on January 9, 2015.

In October 2010, Stanton Chase International (“Stanton Chase”), an executive search firm, served notice of its action filed against the Company in the Supreme Court State of New York, New York Count, Index No. 112613/10, seeking $65,250 in executive consulting fees, which Stanton Chase claims is owed pursuant to a contract between the parties for an executive management search.  The Company disputes the demand based on the fact the Company (i) never entered into a contract with Stanton Chase, (ii) Stanton Chase did not during the period it claimed to provide services ever make the Company aware of any work actually performed or provided and (iii) during the period that Stanton Chase claimed to provide services to Stanton Chase never identified any management personnel for the Company.  As the Company has no nexus to Stanton Chase in New York State, it has not responded to the filed complaint in the State of New York, and has no intention of responding in New York State, at this point. Therefore, it is not possible to evaluate the likelihood of success in this matter at this time, and we have not included any part of the asserted claim in our accounts payable and accrued expenses on the condensed consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2012 and September 30, 2011.

TanOak Litigation

 

On May 11, 2010, the Company filed a complaint against its former accountants, TanOak Partners, LLC, Chris Wain and Paul Spencer (collectively, “TanOak”), in  King County Superior Court (Geobio Energy, Inc. v. TanOak Partners, LLC, Chris Wain and Paul Spencer, Case Number 10-2-17135-5 SEA), for breach of TanOak’s engagement contract, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, violation of fiduciary duties, self-dealing and fraudulent misrepresentation/inducement.  TanOak filed an answer and counterclaim on June 3, 2010 seeking damages for work accounting services actually performed and claiming fraud, breach of contract and breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing.  In September 2011, the Company and TanOak settled and dismissed the case, under which settlement the Company agreed to pay $50,000 in cash for the services provided upon the Company’s receipt of capital financing not less than $5,000,000 (whether in a single event or cumulatively over multiple financing events). We have included the $50,000 in accounts payable and accrued expenses on the condensed consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2012 and September 30, 2011.

 

Goodrich Capital, LLC

 

In January 2010, we entered into an agreement with Goodrich Capital, LLC, for strategic planning, financial and management consulting services in exchange for a non-refundable cash fee of $50,000, creditable against cash fees earned upon closing a transaction as follows: a cash fee of $1.6 million based upon the total capital raise with respect to all financing transactions of $20 million, with the minimum amount payable for all financing transactions being $400,000 (assuming a $5.0 million capital raise). In addition, warrants are issuable to Goodrich Capital in the form of an equity closing fee, fully vested at the time of issuance, to purchase a number of shares of our common stock equal to 5% of the equity issued in such transaction, determined on an as-converted basis. The strike price of the warrants will be equal to the share price of the instruments issued in the transaction and have a term of 10 years from the date of issuance. Under the terms of the agreement, we paid Goodrich Capital $30,000 in the second quarter of 2010. In March 2010, the agreement with Goodrich Capital, LLC was amended. The remaining obligation under the amended agreement, which was terminated pursuant to the amendment, represents $13,500 in fees and expenses and is included in accounts payable and accrued expenses as of March 31, 2012 and September 30, 2011 in the accompanying condensed consolidated balance sheets.

Overview

 

GeoBio Energy, Inc. (“GeoBio” or the “Company”) formerly known as Better Biodiesel, Inc., was incorporated in Colorado in November 1990.  The Company was known as Mountain State Holdings, Inc., (“MSH”) until September 2006, when it was renamed in anticipation of a merger in September 2006, when it acquired all of the Member Units of Domestic Energy Partners, LLC, (“DEP”), a Utah limited liability corporation.  The previous assets and liabilities of MSH were spun off to two stockholders in August 2006 in exchange for the return of common shares.  At the time of the acquisition of DEP, the Company had no assets and no liabilities and 2,000,001 shares of common stock issued and outstanding carried at nil.

  

The merger of the Company and DEP was accounted for as a reverse merger. The assets and liabilities of DEP are presented in the consolidated balance sheet at book value.  The historical operations presented in our consolidated statements of operations are those of DEP.  On December 20, 2007, the Company entered into and closed an Asset Purchase, Settlement and Mutual Release Agreement with the former Members of DEP and effectively disposed of their interest in DEP.

 

In March 2008, we completed our Share Exchange with GeoAlgae Technologies, Inc. (“GeoAlgae”) and acquired GeoAlgae as a wholly owned subsidiary.  GeoAlgae was a recently formed company and its net assets at the date of acquisition were nil. The entire purchase price was allocated to intangible assets which in total constituted a business plan. The intangible assets were subsequently deemed to be impaired.  GeoAlgae is not currently an operating company.

Recent Developments

 

On November 14, 2011, we closed an equity purchase agreement with El Gas North America, Inc., a Washington limited liability company (“El Gas NA”), under which El Gas NA agreed to sell 100% of the issued and outstanding equity interests of El Gas NA for 2.5 million shares of common stock of the Company and a $100,000 promissory note. El Gas NA is a fully licensed and exclusive distributor of El Gas s.r.o’s natural gas volume monitoring and correcting equipment and data recorder products in the territories including the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean Islands. El Gas NA was only recently incorporated and its only asset is its exclusive distributer contract to distribute El Gas s.r.o’s natural gas volume monitoring and correcting equipment and data recorder products in territories previously listed. Given this, the Company has determined that this transaction is not a business combination for accounting purposes and has accounted for the transaction as the acquisition of an asset, i.e. the exclusive distribution agreement.

 

Liquidity, Going Concern and Capital Resources

 

We have prepared our condensed consolidated financial statements assuming that we will continue as a going concern, which contemplate the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business.  As of March 31, 2012, we had a deficit accumulated during the development stage of approximately $29.2 million and expect to incur additional losses in the future. Our working capital deficit was approximately $4.9 million as of March 31, 2012. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

We have funded our losses primarily through sales of common stock and warrants in private placements and borrowings from related parties and other investors. The further development of our business will require capital. Our current cash levels are not sufficient to enable us to execute our business strategy. We require additional financing to satisfy our near-term working capital requirements. Our operating expenses will also consume a material amount of our cash resources. Company management intends to raise additional debt and equity financing to fund future operations and to provide additional working capital. However, there is no assurance that such financing will be obtained in sufficient amounts necessary to meet our needs. In the event that we cannot obtain additional funds, on a timely basis or our operations do not generate sufficient cash flow, we may be forced to curtail or cease our activities, which would likely result in the loss to investors of all or a substantial portion of their investment. We are actively seeking to raise additional capital through the sale of shares of our capital stock to institutional investors and through strategic investments, including convertible bridge loans. If management deems necessary, we might also seek additional loans from related parties or others. However, there can be no assurance that we will be able to consummate any of these transactions, or that these transactions will be consummated on a timely basis or on terms favorable to us. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Discussion of Cash Flows

 

We used cash of approximately $91,000 and $134,000 in our operating activities in the six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. Cash used in operating activities relates primarily to funding net losses, partially offset by share-based payments of consulting fees, director fees, and other expenses and the net change in operating assets and liabilities.  We expect to use cash for operating activities in the foreseeable future as we continue our operating activities.

 

Our investing activities used no cash in the six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.

 

Our financing activities provided cash of approximately $121,000 and $165,000 in the six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 respectively, due to stockholder contributions and payment of expenses on behalf of the Company, as well as proceeds from notes payable.

Notes in Default

 

Our principal sources of funding to-date have been private placements of our common stock and warrants and notes payable.  As of the date of this filing, our $100,000 note payable from Sausalito Capital Partners (a shareholder of the Company) which we originally executed in February 2007 is in default.  The interest rate on the note payable is 6% per annum.  Principal and accrued interest were due at the earlier of November 14, 2008 or within two days of the Company completing a private placement of at least $3.0 million.  A warrant to purchase 1 share of our common stock was issued to the investor in connection with the execution of the note.  The warrant was granted with an initial exercise price of $27,500 per share, valued at $17,000 and expensed over the life of the note payable as interest expense.  The warrant expired in February 2009.    

 

As of the date of this filing, our note payable agreement with Tatum, LLC (“Tatum”) is in default and carries a default interest rate of 13.5% per annum. The note payable was due at the earlier of one year or a financing of at least $1.5 million. At the election of Tatum, the note payable is convertible at any time into shares of our common stock at the lesser of $4,125 per share or the 10 day volume weighted average of the closing bid and ask prices.

Our note payable agreement with Grandview Capital, a stockholder, in the principal amount of $15,000, which was due on or before January 22, 2011, is in default and carries a default rate of interest of 18%.

Our convertible note payable with Value Corp, Inc., in remaining principal amount of $10,000, convertible into shares of our common stock at $0.10 per share, bearing interest at 10% per annum from the interest accrual date of the notes, which were dated December 1, 2010, is also in default as the note was due December 1, 2011 unless previously converted. The default rate of interest is 18%.

 

Convertible notes in aggregate remaining principal amount of approximately $412,000 to Ray Purdon (Managing Director of Grandview Capital, a stockholder of the Company) are in default and carry an interest rate of 12%. The notes are convertible into shares of our common stock at a conversion rate to be mutually agreed upon by the holder and the Company on the date the holder elects to convert.

 

Our convertible note payable agreement with Ryan Wear in the principal amount of $50,000 is in default and carries an interest rate of 12%.

Our convertible note payable agreement with Ron Tate in the principal amount of $50,000 is in default and carries an interest rate of 12%. The note is convertible into shares of our common stock at a conversion rate to be mutually agreed upon by the holder and the Company on the date the holder elects to convert.

Recent Financing Activities

 

In February 2012, we entered into a 12% convertible promissory note with Ronald Tate in an aggregate principal amount of $25,000, due February 9, 2013 if not previously converted at the option of the holder into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price per share equal to a 35% discount to the volume-weighted average closing per share price of the Company’s common stock on the OTC:QB or OTC:BB market for the 10 trading days immediately prior to either the maturity date or the conversion date, as applicable.

 

In February 2012, we entered into a 12% convertible promissory note with Ryan Wear in an aggregate principal amount of $25,000, due February 9, 2013 if not previously converted at the option of the holder into shares of the Company’s common stock at a price per share equal to a 35% discount to the volume-weighted average closing per share price of the Company’s common stock on the OTC:QB or OTC:BB market for the 10 trading days immediately prior to either the maturity date or the conversion date, as applicable.

 

In March 2012, advances due to James Rodgers, together with accrued interest, were reissued as 8% convertible note payable in the amount of $148,280.48, due March 1, 2013. The note is convertible into shares of our common stock at $0.01 per share. The default rate of interest is 12%.

 

In January 2012, we entered into a 10% promissory note with Otto Capital, LLC in an aggregate principal amount of $4,000, due within five (5) days following the Company’s receipt of a capital financing (or cumulative financings) in the amount of $750,000. The default rate of interest is 22%. The promissory note was issued together with a warrant to purchase up to 133,333 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.03 per share. The warrant expires in three years.

 

On March 13,2012, we entered into a 10% promissory note with Jack Walkely in an aggregate principal amount of $25,000, due the earlier of within five (5) days following the Company’s receipt of a capital financing (or cumulative financings) in the amount of $725,000 or September 13, 2012. The default rate of interest is 22%. The promissory note was issued together with a warrant to purchase up to 833,334 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $0.03 per share.

 

Summary

 

We are dependent on existing cash resources and external sources of financing to meet our working capital needs.  Current sources of liquidity are insufficient to provide for budgeted and anticipated working capital requirements.  We will therefore be required to seek additional financing to satisfy our working capital requirements.  No assurances can be given that such capital will be available to us on acceptable terms, if at all.  In addition to equity financing and strategic investments, we may seek additional related party loans.  If we are unable to obtain any such additional financing or if such financing cannot be obtained on terms acceptable to us, we may be required to delay or scale back our operations, which would adversely affect our ability to generate future revenues and may force us to curtail or cease our operating activities. These conditions give rise to substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.  Our ability to expand operations and generate additional revenue and our ability to obtain additional funding will determine our ability to continue as a going concern.  Our financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Results of Operations

 

In the three and six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, we incurred net losses of approximately $560,000 and $1,025,000 and $570,000 and $2,087,000, respectively.

 

Revenues and Cost of Sales.  We had no revenues or cost of sales in the three and six months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.

 

Operating Expenses.  Operating expenses decreased to $881,000 in the six months ended March 31, 2012, from $1,881,000 in the six months ended March 31, 2011, due primarily to a decrease in current year executive compensation and management consulting in the current six month period. Executive compensation and management consulting expense was approximately $845,000 in the prior year six month period compared to $420,000 in the current six month period. In addition, in the prior year six month period, legal expenses were approximately $470,000 due to acquisition-related activities and financing efforts. In the current six month period, legal fees were approximately $258,000.

 

21
 

 

Operating expenses increased to $483,000 in the three months ended March 31, 2012 from $444,000 in the three months ended March 31, 2011, due primarily to $75,000 in accrued fees related to our agreement with Mosaic Capital, LLC.

 

Interest Expense.  Interest expense decreased from $126,000 and $206,000 in the prior year three and six month periods to $77,000 and $144,000 in the current year three and six month periods, respectively. In January 2011, we issued 140,000 shares of our common stock for forbearance of these advances payable totaling approximately $140,000. The value of the shares of $77,000 based on the closing price of our common stock of $0.55 on the date of issuance was recorded to interest expense during the second quarter of 2011. This is the primary reason for the decrease in the three and six month periods.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of March 31, 2012, we did not have any off-balance sheet arrangements, as defined in Item 303(a)(4)(ii) of SEC Regulation S-K.

  

ITEM 4.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

 

(a) Disclosure Controls and Procedures.  As of the end of the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of senior management, including Mr. Laurence Shelver, our Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Mr. Clayton Shelver, our Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”). Based upon that evaluation, our CEO and CFO concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective in recording, processing, summarizing and reporting, on a timely basis, information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act. As previously reported under Item 9A in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2011 (the “Annual Report”), we had numerous deficiencies in our disclosures controls as of September 30, 2011. In the Annual Report we described the remediation efforts we have begun to undertake in order to correct such deficiencies. As of March 31, 2012, the deficiencies described in the Annual Report still existed since the remediation efforts had not yet been fully implemented as of such date.

 

(b)  Internal Control over Financial Reporting.  There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting or in other factors during the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2012 that materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting subsequent to the date we carried out our most recent evaluation. As previously reported in Item 9A of the Annual Report, we had numerous material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting as of September 30, 2011. In the Annual Report we described the remediation efforts we have begun to undertake in order to correct such material weaknesses. As of March 31, 2012, the material weaknesses described in the Annual Report still existed since the remediation efforts had not yet been fully implemented as of such date.

In October 2010, Stanton Chase International (“Stanton Chase”), an executive search firm, served notice of its action filed against the Company in the Supreme Court State of New York, New York Count, Index No. 112613/10, seeking $65,250 in executive consulting fees, which Stanton Chase claims is owed pursuant to a contract between the parties for an executive management search.  The Company disputes the demand based on the fact the Company (i) never entered into a contract with Stanton Chase, (ii) Stanton Chase did not during the period it claimed to provide services ever make the Company aware of any work actually performed or provided and (iii) during the period that Stanton Chase claimed to provide services to Stanton Chase never identified any management personnel for the Company.  As the Company has no nexus to Stanton Chase in New York State, it has not responded to the filed complaint in the State of New York, and has no intention of responding in New York State, at this point. Therefore, it is not possible to evaluate the likelihood of success in this matter at this time, and we have not included any part of the asserted claim in our accounts payable and accrued expenses on the condensed consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2012 and September 30, 2011.

 

On May 11, 2010, the Company filed a complaint against its former accountants, TanOak Partners, LLC, Chris Wain and Paul Spencer (collectively, “TanOak”), in  King County Superior Court (Geobio Energy, Inc. v. TanOak Partners, LLC, Chris Wain and Paul Spencer, Case Number 10-2-17135-5 SEA), for breach of TanOak’s engagement contract, breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing, violation of fiduciary duties, self-dealing and fraudulent misrepresentation/inducement.  TanOak filed an answer and counterclaim on June 3, 2010 seeking damages for work accounting services actually performed and claiming fraud, breach of contract and breach of the covenant of good faith and fair dealing.  In September 2011, the Company and TanOak settled and dismissed the case, under which settlement the Company agreed to pay $50,000 in cash for the services provided upon the Company’s receipt of capital financing not less than $5,000,000 (whether in a single event or cumulatively over multiple financing events). We have included the $50,000 in accounts payable and accrued expenses on the condensed consolidated balance sheets as of March 31, 2012 and September 30, 2011.
