ZHONG SEN INTERNATIONAL TEA COMPANY
NOTES TO THE CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
AS OF AUGUST 31, 2012
(UNAUDITED)

NOTE 1 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ORGANIZATION
 
Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying condensed unaudited financial statements are presented in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and the instructions to Form 10-Q and item 310 under subpart A of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting only of normal occurring accruals) considered necessary in order to make the financial statements not misleading, have been included. Operating results for the three months ended August 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the year ending May 31, 2013. The financial statements are presented on the accrual basis.
 
Organization
 
Zhong Sen International Tea Company (the “Company”) was incorporated on January 30, 2008, in the State of Florida. The Company has the principal business objective of providing sales and marketing consulting services to small to medium sized Chinese tea producing companies who wish to export and distribute high quality Chinese tea products worldwide. The Company commenced business activities in August, 2008, when it entered into a related party Sales and Marketing Agreement with Yunnan Zhongsen Group, Ltd (YZG) (a/k/a Yunnan Zhongsen Commercial Forest Plantation Group Inc., a/k/a Yunnan Zhongsen Forest Co., Ltd.), a company located in Kunming, China, to provide sales and marketing consulting services for YZG’s tea and tea related business lines. 
 
Functional Currency
 
We reviewed the requirements as set forth in FASB ASC 830-10-55-4, "in those instances in which the indicators are mixed and the functional currency is not obvious, management's judgment will be required to determine the functional currency that most faithfully portrays the economic results of the entity's operations and thereby best achieves the objectives of foreign currency translation set forth in paragraph 830-10-10-2."  Paragraph 830-10-10-2 provides that the foreign currency translation must accurately reflect the reporting company's cash flows and equity when applying a rate change.   Both our functional and reporting currency is US Dollars. The Company uses the US Dollar as this is the economic environment of its operations. The Company maintains its bank account in US Dollars, pays invoices in US Dollars, and most agreements require the amounts to be settled in US Dollars. We therefore feel that the US Dollar is our functional currency.
 
Use of Estimates
 
The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities, and disclosure of contingent liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates include the valuation of deferred taxes and the reserve for doubtful accounts.  Actual results could differ from those results.
 
Revenue Recognition
 
The Company recognizes revenue from marketing arrangements in accordance with FASB ASC No. 605, “Revenue Recognition.” In all cases, revenue is recognized at the time the commissions or fees have been earned, which is upon the completion of the sale and when the price is fixed and determinable, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the service is performed and collectability of the resulting receivable is reasonably assured.
 
 
6

 
 
Cash and Cash Equivalents, and Credit Risk
 
For purposes of reporting cash flows, the Company considers all cash accounts with maturities of 90 days or less and which are not subject to withdrawal restrictions or penalties, as cash and cash equivalents in the accompanying balance sheet.
 
Accounts Receivable
 
The Company is required to estimate the collectability of its accounts receivable. The Company's reserve for doubtful accounts is estimated by management based on a review of historic losses and the age of existing receivables from specific customers. As of August 31, 2012 and May 31, 2012, the Company recorded a reserve for doubtful accounts of $32,640 and $32,640, respectively.
 
Concentration of Credit Risk
 
During the three months ended August 31, 2012 and 2011 one related party customer located in China accounted for 100% of the Company's accounts receivable as of August 31, 2012 and May 31, 2012, which has been fully reserved (see Accounts Receivable note above).
 
Stock Compensation
 
The Company follows FASB Accounting Standards Codification No. 718 – Compensation – Stock Compensation for share based payments to employees.  The Company follows FASB Accounting Standards Codification No. 505 for share based payments to Non-Employees
 
Segments
 
The Company operates in one segment and therefore segment information is not presented.  100% of our sales revenue is derived from a company located in China and 100% of our accounts receivable balances are from the same customer located in China.  Please refer to the above “Concentration of Credit Risk”.
 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
The carrying amounts of the Company’s financial instruments including accounts receivable, loans payable to shareholders, accounts payable and accrued expenses approximate fair value due to the relatively short period to maturity for these instruments.
 
Evaluation of Intangible Asset for Impairment
 
On a quarterly basis, management reviews its current and expected future cash flow derived from its intangible assets and determines if any impairment exists and if there is a need to record an impairment. We will update our future filings to include our accounting policy for evaluating intangible assets for impairment.
 
The Company has capitalized the value of the Sales and Marketing agreement. The Management determined upon review of current and expected future cash flow derived from the Sales and Marketing Agreement that the value of the Agreement had been impaired. As of May 31, 2011 the Company has recorded an impairment on the agreement in the amount of $499,000. The Company issued 83,333 shares of common stock valued at $50,000 or $.60 per share as the finder’s fee. The Company expensed the value of the common stock issued at August 31, 2008.
 
The Company evaluates the recoverability of the sales and marketing agreement annually and whenever events or circumstance make it more likely than not that impairment may have occurred. Several factors are used to evaluate the intangible asset, including management’s plans for future operations and recent operating results. In the event facts and circumstances indicate the carrying value of the license agreement is impaired, the license agreements carrying value will be reduced to its implied fair value through a charge to operating expenses. At May 31, 2011, the Company evaluated the recoverability of the sales and marketing agreement, and the collectability of related accounts receivable. The Company determined that as a result of an increase in the possibility of the uncollectability of its accounts receivable, the sales and marketing agreement should be further impaired.  During the year ended May 31, 2011, the Company recorded an impairment on the Agreement of $120,000.
 
 
7

 
 
Earnings Per Share
 
Basic and diluted net loss per common share is computed based upon the weighted average common shares outstanding as defined by FASB ASC No. 260, “Earnings Per Share.” As of August 31, 2012 and August 31, 2011, there were no common share equivalents outstanding.
 
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
In December 2011, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2011-11, Balance Sheet - Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities” to enhance disclosure requirements relating to the offsetting of assets and liabilities on an entity's balance sheet. The update requires enhanced disclosures regarding assets and liabilities that are presented net or gross in the statement of financial position when the right of offset exists, or that are subject to an enforceable master netting arrangement. The new disclosure requirements relating to this update are retrospective and effective for annual and interim periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013. The update only requires additional disclosures, as such, we do not expect that the adoption of this standard will have a material impact on our results of operations, cash flows or financial condition.

In July, 2012, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2012-2, “Intangibles – Goodwill and Other about Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment” to reduce the cost and complexity of performing an impairment test for indefinite-lived intangible assets by simplifying how an entity tests those assets for impairment and to improve consistency in impairment testing guidance among long-lived asset categories.  The amendments permit an entity first to assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is greater than 50 percent more likely than not that an indefinite-lived intangible asset is impaired as a basis for determining whether it is necessary to perform the quantitative impairment test.  The amendments are effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012. Early adoption is permitted, including for annual and interim impairment tests performed as of a date before July 27, 2012, if a public entity’s financial statements for the most recent annual or interim period have not yet been issued.  Our Sales and Marketing Agreement with Related Party was fully impaired during the year ended May 31, 2011, and as such, we do not expect that the adoption of this standard will have a material impact on our results of operatonis, cash flows or financial condition.
 
NOTE 2 - SALES AND MARKETING AGREEMENT WITH RELATED PARTY
 
On August 29, 2008 the Company entered into a related party Sales and Marketing Agreement (the “Agreement”) with the Yunnan Zhongsen Group, Ltd. (formerly known as Yunnan Zhongsen Forest Co., Ltd. (a/k/a Yunnan Zhongsen Commercial Forest Plantation Group Inc) on or before September 1, 2008), or YZG, a Chinese company located in Kunming, Yunnan Province, People’s Republic of China, which caused them to become YZG’s exclusive sales and marketing agent worldwide. The Company receives a commission of 20% of global sales, payable each month based on the Company’s and YZG’s sales figures. The Agreement is for a fifty year term, commencing on the Closing Date and ending on August 29, 2058 (the “Initial Term”). The Initial Term shall be automatically extended for additional terms of successive fifty year periods (the “Additional Term”) unless the Parties give written notice to the other of the termination of the Agreement hereunder at least 180 days prior to the expiration of the Initial Term or Additional Term. Under the Agreement, the Company shall provide sales, marketing and finance services to YZG as the exclusive worldwide sales agent, and shall identify customers throughout the entire world for YZG products and services. The Company shall further, within such limitations relating to price, delivery and other key terms as YZG may, from time to time specify in writing, and subject to acceptance by YZG (by telex or otherwise), negotiate sales contracts as YZG’s exclusive worldwide sales agent, inside and outside of China.

On August 29, 2008, the effective date of the transaction, the Company issued 831,667 shares of common stock valued at $499,000 or $.60 per share the most recent cash offering price in exchange for the sales and marketing agreement to 4,200 YZG shareholders, who were, at the time, made up of shareholders, officers and directors, friends and family, and suppliers and customers of YZG. Prior to the transaction, there were no common shareholders, officers, directors or other related parties or transactions between the Company and YZG. The Company determined the fair value of the equity exchanged was the more reliable measurement of the assets acquired. ASC 805-50-25-1 requires the equity issued to be recognized on the date of the acquisition. At the time the company entered into the marketing agreement, we had recently completed a private placement of stock for cash. Based on the current cash offering price, it was determined that this was the fair value of the stock and this value was used to value the transaction.
 
In August 2010, the 5 current shareholders of YZG, acquired all of the outstanding shares of YZG from the previous 4,200 shareholders, among which selling shareholders was Ms. Wang.  In connection with their acquisition of the YZG shares, the former officers and directors of YZG, including Zhou Zhongping, Zou Jun and Pin Nie, resigned from their positions in YZG effective August 2010.  On August 29, 2008, Ms. Wang owned 13.61% of YZG, which was subsequently sold to the 5 current shareholders in August 2010 in an undisclosed ratio.  Currently, none of our officers and directors is related to the owners of YZG.
 
The Company determined the fair value of the equity exchanged was the more reliable measurement of the assets acquired. ASC 805-50-25-1 requires the equity issued to be recognized on the date of the acquisition. At the time the Company entered into the marketing agreement, we had recently completed a private placement of stock for cash. Based on the current cash offering price, it was determined that this was the fair value of the stock and this value was used to value the transaction.

In May, 2011, we impaired the entire value of the Marketing Agreement due to our inability to collect our receivables from YZG.  While YZG continues to assure us that they are obligated to make, and will make, payment on our open receivable from them, we have thus far been unable to collect our receivable.  The inability to collect this receivable has caused us to examine the value of the Marketing Agreement, based on the future value of the revenues and the ability of us to collect those revenues, and we determined that it is in our best interest to impair the remaining value of the Marketing Agreement.
 
We are not under common ownership or management as YZG with the exception of our President and Chairman, Wang Li, who currently serves as a director on the Board of Directors of YZG.  The following tables set forth our current Officers and Directors and the Officers, Directors and ownership interests of YZG.

These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. Management continues to provide consulting services to the Company’s main customer and related party, YZG, in anticipation that economic conditions will continue to improve and that YZG will be able to continue to make payments under the Marketing Agreement. Management continues to actively seek additional sources of capital to fund current and future operations. There is no assurance that the Company will be successful in continuing to raise additional capital and establish its business model. These financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties.
 
NOTE 8 – SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
 
On September 21, 2012, a stockholder loaned the company $50 for the sole purpose of funding ongoing operations.  The note is interest free and is payable on demand.  The note was repaid on October 15, 2012.

On September 29, 2012, our President entered into a non-binding letter of intent to sell all of her stock in the Company, to a number of independent third parties.  In connection with the letter of intent, the buyers gave the President a $50,000 deposit in exchange for an exclusivity period, which will end on November 30, 2012.  The deposit became non-refundable on October 14, 2012, upon the buyers completion of their due diligence.  On October 15, 2012 the President contributed the $50,000 to the Company for the sole purpose of funding ongoing operations.  If the sale of the stock is completed, the transaction will result in a change in control of the Company, although no guarantees can be made that this transaction will be completed.

On October 15, 2012, the Company repaid the Convertible Debenture in the principal amount of $6,000 and accrued interest of $369.

The following discussion contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 relating to future events or our future performance. Actual results may materially differ from those projected in the forward-looking statements as a result of certain risks and uncertainties set forth in this prospectus. Although management believes that the assumptions made and expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, there is no assurance that the underlying assumptions will, in fact, prove to be correct or that actual results will not be different from expectations expressed in this report.
 
BUSINESS OVERVIEW

Zhong Sen International Tea Company (the “Company”) was incorporated on January 30, 2008, in the State of Florida. The Company has the principal business objective of providing sales and marketing consulting services to small to medium sized Chinese tea producing companies who wish to export and distribute high quality Chinese tea products worldwide. The Company commenced business activities in August 2008, when it entered into a related party Sales and Marketing Agreement with Yunnan Zhongsen Group, Ltd (“YZG”) , a related party company located in Kunming, China, to provide sales and marketing consulting services for YZG’s tea and tea related business lines.  During the year ended May 31, 2009, the Company exited the development stage.
 
RESULTS OF OPERATION
 
Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended August 31, 2012 as Compared to the Three Months ended August 31, 2011
 
Total Revenues

We had revenues of $0 for the three months ended August 31, 2012 and $0 for the three months ended August 31, 2011.  We are entitled to receive 20% of YZG’s sales through the related party sales and marketing agreement we signed with YZG in August, 2008.  Due to operational and cash flow issues with YZG, a related party and our sole customer, management has determined that future collections under our marketing agreement are doubtful and stopped recording sales in the fourth quarter of 2010 related to this agreement.
 
Operating Expenses
 
Operating expenses for the three months ended August 31, 2012 totaled $46,987 as compared to $11,439,034 for the three months ended August 31, 2011.  During the first quarter of 2011, we issued 18,998,992 shares of common stock, with a value of $11,399,395, at the most recent cash sale price of $0.60 per share, to our President for her service to the Company.  Exclusive of the stock issuance, during the comparable period ended August 31, 2012, professional fees increased by approximately $7,000 due to additional audit costs. 

Net Loss

Net loss was $46,681 for the three months ended August 31, 2012, as compared to a net loss of $11,439,034 for the three months ended August 31, 2011. During the first quarter of 2011, we issued 18,998,992 shares of common stock, with a value of $11,399,395 at the most recent cash sale price of $0.60 per share, to our President for her service to the Company.  Exclusive of the stock issuance, during the comparable period ended August 31, 2012, professional fees increased by approximately $7,000 due to additional audit costs.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
As of August 31, 2012, we have assets of $5 consisting of cash of $5 and total liabilities of $260,155 consisting of accounts payable of $257,771, notes payable from related party of $50 and convertible debenture payable (net of discount) of $2,334. As compared to May 31, 2012 we had assets of $40 consisting of cash of $40 and total liabilities of $224,509, consisting of accounts payable of $223,637, notes payable from related party of $50, convertible debenture payable (net of discount) of $822.
  
Cash and cash equivalents from inception to date have been insufficient to cover our expenses. Current cash on hand is insufficient to support our operations for the next twelve months. Therefore, we will require additional funds to continue to implement and expand our business plan during the next twelve months.

PLAN OF OPERATIONS
 
Our plan of operations for the next twelve months is focused on the following primary objectives.
 
 
1.
Find additional customers to purchase tea products from our contracted supplier, Yunnan Zhongsen Group, Ltd., and
 
2.
Raise capital through private debt or equity offerings.
 
3.
Identifying potential candidates for merger or acquisition opportunities
 
Subject to the requisite financing, we believe that we can complete the following objectives within the time period specified:
 
Supply Agreements

In August 2008, we entered into a related party agreement with Yunnan Zhongsen Group, Ltd., or YZG, a Chinese company located in Kunming, Yunnan Province, People’s Republic of China, which caused us to become YZG’s exclusive sales and marketing agent worldwide. We receive a commission of 20% of global sales, payable each month based on our and YZG’s sales figures.  On August 29, 2008, the effective date of the transaction, we issued 831,667 shares to approximately 4,200 shareholders in exchange for the sales and marketing agreement. Additionally, our former sole director and officer named a new board of directors, and hired new executive officers, and resigned his positions at the company.  Due to operational and cash flow issues with YZG, a related party and our sole customer, management has determined that future collections under our marketing agreement are doubtful and stopped recording sales in the fourth quarter of 2010 related to this agreement.

Sales and Marketing
 
All sales are generated by external sales and marketing representatives, including those at our related party main supplier, YZG. The product is positioned as a high-end luxury product.  The 3,000 year history of this limited production, highly prized product will be essential in positioning the product and in differentiating this product from the current American and European viewpoint of commercially produced tea, as well as setting it apart from much of the tea products offered throughout Asia. The history, culture and ritual surrounding the production of the tea leaf and the ritual of the service and presentation of this luxury item will be exploited and are critical to the positioning of the product.
 
Our company suggests both direct sales and indirect sales through channel marketing to our client as the methods of getting the product to the worldwide consumer. Direct sales can occur in person, via the phone, the Internet or by mail. Indirect, or channel sales typically refers to sales through a reseller. A reseller can order from us directly, or from a wholesale distributor.  In any case, our compensation is directly affected by our client’s sales volume.
 
We suggest to our client, YZG that they can minimize channel conflicts by employing one or more of the following strategies:
 
      Segmentation of the product line;
 
      Establishment of limited or exclusive territories;
 
      Design price differentiation from direct sales and channels sales providing a cost incentive for the consumer to purchase from the reseller;
 
      Establishment of rotating promotions for resellers; and/or
 
      Design a tiered system that would establish reseller levels rewarding higher volume resellers with improved margins.
 
Based on our recommendations, they will establish and manage their channel marketing program worldwide by establishing a competitive reseller program, recruiting resellers, preparing proper reseller collateral, creating reseller kits, managing the reseller database using Partner Relationship Management (PRM) software, ensuring proper merchandising, ensuring adequate stocking levels, providing reseller education and managing seeding programs. The channel program allows this company to produce a large volume of sales utilizing its existing human resources as, we will have the ability to manage resellers and thereby multiply our resources. Direct sales can be managed mostly by technology through applications available through the Internet, such as, on-line stores with credit card processing portals to accumulate sales orders from direct sales. The proper implementation of these programs effectively eliminates the need for the hiring of additional staff for a significant period of time by the use of technology and the multiplication of resources by contracting with distributors or other resellers.

Revenue Model

Our revenue model contemplates a single form of revenue, but from multiple sources. We anticipate earning our revenue based on the success of our sales and marketing efforts provided to the tea producer. We will earn a percentage of sales directly related to our efforts.  Since we will be processing the sales for our client, we will have a direct and firsthand knowledge of the effectiveness of our efforts.

Acquisition or Merger Candidates

We will attempt to locate and negotiate with a business entity for the combination of that target company with us. The combination will normally take the form of a merger, stock- for-stock exchange or stock-for-assets exchange. In most instances the target company will wish to structure the business combination to be within the definition of a tax-free reorganization under Section 351 or Section 368 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. No assurances can be given that we will be successful in locating or negotiating with any target company.

Employees
 
As of August 31, 2012, we have no employees.  Our officers and directors contribute their services at no cost to the Company.
  
GOING CONCERN
 
As reflected in the accompanying unaudited financial statements, we have a net loss of $48,681, a working capital deficiency of $260,150 and an accumulated deficit of $12,372,239 as of August 31, 2012.  This raises substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on our ability to raise additional capital and implement our business plan. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.  In June, 2012, a related party contributed $13,000 to the Company.
 
We believe that actions presently being taken to obtain additional funding and implement our strategic plans provide the opportunity for us to continue as a going concern.
 
CRITICAL ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
 
Our financial statements and related public financial information are based on the application of generally accepted accounting principles 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.
 
Our significant accounting policies are summarized in Note 1 of our financial statements. While all these significant accounting policies impact its financial condition and results of operations, we view certain of these policies as critical. Policies determined to be critical are those policies that have the most significant impact on our financial statements and require management to use a greater degree of judgment and estimates. Actual results may differ from those estimates. Our management believes that given current facts and circumstances, it is unlikely that applying any other reasonable judgments or estimate methodologies would cause effect on our results of operations, financial position or liquidity for the periods presented in this report. 
 
Revenue Recognition
 
We recognize revenue on arrangements in accordance with FASB ASC No. 605, “Revenue Recognition”.  In all cases, revenue is recognized only when the price is fixed and determinable, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the service is performed and collectability of the resulting receivable is reasonably assured.
 
RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

In December 2011, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2011-11, “Balance Sheet - Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities” to enhance disclosure requirements relating to the offsetting of assets and liabilities on an entity's balance sheet. The update requires enhanced disclosures regarding assets and liabilities that are presented net or gross in the statement of financial position when the right of offset exists, or that are subject to an enforceable master netting arrangement. The new disclosure requirements relating to this update are retrospective and effective for annual and interim periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013. The update only requires additional disclosures, as such, we do not expect that the adoption of this standard will have a material impact on our results of operations, cash flows or financial condition.

In July 2012, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update 2012-2, “Intangibles - Goodwill and Other about Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment” to reduce the cost and complexity of performing an impairment test for indefinite-lived intangible assets by simplifying how an entity tests those assets for impairment and to improve consistency in impairment testing guidance among long-lived asset categories.  The amendments permit an entity first to assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is greater than 50 percent more likely than not that an indefinite-lived intangible asset is impaired as a basis for determining whether it is necessary to perform the quantitative impairment test.  The amendments are effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012.  Early adoption is permitted, including for annual and interim impairment tests performed as of a date before July 27, 2012, if a public entity’s financial statements for the most recent annual or interim period have not yet been issued.  Our Sales and Marketing Agreement with Related Party was fully impaired during the year ended May 31, 2011, and as such, we do not expect that the adoption of this standard will have a material impact on our results of operations, cash flows or financial condition.

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS
 
We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements, financings, or other relationships with unconsolidated entities or other persons, also known as “special purpose entities” (“SPE”s).
 
Item 3.    Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risks

Not applicable because we are a smaller reporting company.
 
Item 4.    Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures 

Pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”), the Company carried out an evaluation, with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined under Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based upon that evaluation, the Company’s CEO and CFO concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that the Company files or submits under the Exchange Act, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including the Company’s CEO and CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure as a result of continuing material weaknesses in its internal control over financial reporting.

As disclosed in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended May 31, 2012, during the assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of May 31, 2012, our management identified material weaknesses related to the lack of requisite U.S. GAAP expertise of our CFO and our internal bookkeeper. This lack of expertise to prepare our financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP without the assistance of the outside accounting consultant hired to ensure that our financial statements are prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP constitutes a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting. In order to mitigate the material weakness, we engaged an outside accounting consulting to assist us in the preparation of our financial statements to ensure that these financial statements are prepared in conformity to U.S. GAAP. This outside accounting consultant is a certified public accountant in the U.S. and has significant experience in the preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP.  We believe that the engagement of this consultant will lessen the possibility that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis, and we will continue to monitor the effectiveness of this action and make any changes that our management deems appropriate. We expect to continue to rely on this outside consulting arrangement to supplement our internal accounting staff for the foreseeable future. Until such time as we hire the proper internal accounting staff with the requisite U.S. GAAP experience, however, it is unlikely we will be able to remediate the material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting.

Changes in Internal Controls Over Financial Reporting

There have been no changes in the Company's internal control over financial reporting during the latest fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.
