NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
FOR THE PERIOD ENDED MARCH 31, 2012
The Company was established as a form of partnership. In Turkey, partnership is the association of two or people who co-own a business for trading goods under a trade name. The owners have unlimited responsibility to their creditors. This form of company does not have minimum capital requirements. On May 7, 2010, the company became TouchIT Technologies, Inc, a Nevada domiciled company in the United States of America by means of a reverse merge transaction detailed herewith.
TouchIT Education Technologies Dis Ticaret Killektik Sirketi Andrew Stuart Brabin ve Ortagi formerly RT Lojistik Dis Ticaret Recep Tanisman ve Ortagi (referred as “TouchIT Education”) was established on August 27, 2007 with a “Share Transfer of Open Company and amendment Agreement.”
On May 7, 2010 TouchIT Education, TouchIT Technologies and their stockholders (“TouchIT Turkey”) entered into a Share Exchange Agreement with Hotel Management Systems, Inc. (“Hotel Management”), a Nevada corporation.
Pursuant to the terms of the Share Exchange Agreement, Hotel Management issued a total of 48,330,000 shares of their common stock, par value USD 0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”) to the shareholders of TouchIT Technologies and TouchIT Education in exchange for the transfer of 100% of the shares of TouchIT Tech and TouchIT Education to Hotel Management. This exchange transaction resulted in TouchIT Technologies and TouchIT Education becoming Hotel Management. The wholly-owned subsidiaries and the stockholders of TOUCHIT Turkey own approximately 78.93% of the Hotel Management’s issued and outstanding stock, prior to any financing.
Simultaneously with the closing of the Share Exchange Agreement, on May 7, 2010, Management entered into a Subscription Agreement (the “Subscription Agreement”) with investors for the sale of shares up to the value of USD 1,500,000 (the Purchase Price”). As a result USD 750,000 of the Purchase Price was recognized in TouchIT Education’s balance sheet as a future obligation to one of the investors.
The Turkish subsidiaries were officially closed in August 2011.
Average number of employees of the Company as of March 31, 2011 was 6 and March 31, 2012 is five.
Description of Business
TouchIT Technologies, Inc is a designer and manufacturer (via 3rd party) of Interactive Products, namely, Interactive Whiteboards and Interactive LCDs.
In January 2010, the FASB issued an amendment to ASC, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosure,” to require entities to separately disclose the amounts and business rationale for significant transfers in and out of Level 1 and Level 2 fair value measurements and separately present information regarding purchase, sale, issuance, and settlement of Level 3 fair value measures on a gross basis. This standard is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2009 with the exception of disclosures regarding the purchase, sale, issuance, and settlement of Level 3 fair measures which are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2010, its adoption will not have a material impact on the Company’s financial statements.
The Company maintains its books of account and prepares financial statements in accordance with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) in the United States of America. The Company’s fiscal year ends on December 31.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
Cash equivalents consist of highly liquid investments, which are readily convertible into, cash, with original maturities of three months or less.
Basis of Accounting
The Company uses the accrual basis of accounting.
Accounts Receivable – Recognition of Bad Debt
The Corporation considers accounts receivable to be fully collectible; accordingly, no allowance for doubtful accounts is required. If amounts become uncollectible, they will be charged to operations when that determination is made.
The company recognizes revenue when there is persuasive evidence of an arrangement, delivery has occurred or services are rendered, the sales price is terminable, and collectability is reasonably assure. Revenue typically is recognized at the time of shipment. Sales are recorded net of discounts, rebates, and returns.
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market. Costs, including an appropriate portion of fixed and variable overhead expenses are assigned to inventories by the method most appropriate to the particular class of inventory being valued on the weighted average basis.
Parties are considered to be related if one parry has the ability to control the other party or exercise significant influence over the other party in making the financial and operating decisions. For the purpose of these financial statements shareholders are referred to as related parities. Related parties are also included individuals that are principle owners, management and members of the Company’s Board of Directors and their families.
All costs incurred over $500 are capitalized. Costs which lengthen the life of a fixed asset are capitalized and depreciated over the extended life of the asset.
Depreciation is computed on the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Assets reviewed for impairment whenever changes in circumstances or events may indicate that the carrying amounts are not recoverable. If the fair value is less that the carrying amount of the asset, a loss is recognized for the difference.
The Company has elected to be treated as a regular “C” corporation; therefore, the corporation , not the stockholders, will pay income taxes.
Retirement Pay Provision
Under Turkish laws, lump sum payments are made to employees retiring or involuntary leaving the Company. Such payments are considered as being part of a defined retirement benefit plan.
The retirement benefit obligation recognized in the balance sheet represents the present value of defined benefit obligation as adjusted for unrecognized actuarial gains and losses.
Leases are classified as capital leases whenever the terms of the lease transfer substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership to the lessee. All other leases are classified as operating leases.
In June 1997, the Financial Accounting Standard Board issued SFAS No. 130, “Reporting Comprehensive Income.” SFAS No. 130 is effective for years beginning after June 15, 1997. This statement provides reporting standards of comprehensive income and its components and requires that all components of comprehensive income be reported in the financial statements in the period in which they are recognized. The Company has adopted the provisions of SFAS No. 130 in its financial statements and adoption of this statement did not have any effect.
Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an assets or paid to transfer a a liability in an orderly transaction between participants at the measurement date (i.e., an exit price). The guidance includes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets and liabilities (Level 1) and the lowest priority
To unobservable inputs (Level 3). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy are described below:
Level 1 – Quoted, active market prices for identical assets or liabilities. Level 1 also includes U.S. Treasury and federal agency securities and federal agency mortgage-backed securities, which are traded by dealers of brokers in active markets. Valuation are obtained from readily available pricing sources for market transactions involving identical assets or liabilities. The Company did not have any Level 1 assets or liabilities.
Level 2 – Observable inputs other than Level 1, such as quoted market prices for similar assets or liabilities, quoted for identical or similar assets in inactive markets, and model derived valuations in which all significant inputs are observable in active markets. The Company did not have any Level 2 assets or liabilities.
Level 3 – Valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs are observable in the marketable. The company did not have any Level 3 assets or liabilities.
As of March 31, 2011 and March 31, 2012, cash and cash equivalents comprised were comprised of the following:
As of March 31, 2011 and March 31, 2012, trade receivables comprised were comprised of the following:
In the course of conducting its business, the Company conducted various business transactions with related parities on commercial terms.
Related parties and shareholders balances and transactions have been presented as follows:
As of March 31, 2011 and March 31, 2012, other receivables comprised of the following:
As of March 31, 2011 and March 31, 2012, non-currents comprised of the following:

As of March 31, 2011 and March 31, 2012, other current liabilities of the following:
The principal assumption is that the maximum liability for each year of service will increase parallel with inflation. Thus, the discount rate applied represents the expected real rate after adjusting for the anticipated effects of future inflation. Consequently, in the accompanying financial statements as at June 30, 2011, the provision has been calculated by estimating the present value of the future probable obligation of the Company arising from the retirement of the employees. The anticipated rate of forfeitures is considered. As the maximum liability is revised semiannually, the maximum amount of TRY 2,623 effective from January 1, 2011 has been taken into consideration in calculation of provision from employment termination benefits (2010: TRY 2,517)
The issued share capital of the Company is respectively for the period ended at March 31, 2011 and 2012 is comprised of the following:
The composition of sales by principal for the periods ended March 31, 2011 and 2012 can be summarized as follows:

Financial risk factors
The Company’s activities expose it to a variety of financial risks, credit risk and liquidity risk. The Company’s overall risk management program focuses on the unpredictability of financial markets seeks to minimize potential adverse effects on the Company’s financial performance.
The Company’s activities expose it primarily to the financial risks of changes in foreign currency exchange rates.
Foreign currency risk management
The Company undertakes certain transactions denominated in foreign currencies. Hence, exposures to exchange rate fluctuations arise. Foreign currency position, net for the periods ended September 30, 2011 and 2010 can be summarized as follows:
Credit risk management
Credit risk refers to the risk that the counterparty will default on its contractual obligations resulting in a financial loss to the company. The Company has adopted a policy of only dealing with creditworthy counterparties. The Company’s exposure and the credit ratings of it counterparties are continuously monitored and the aggregate value of transactions concluded is spread amongst approved counterparties.
Liquidity risk management
Liquidity risk arises from the fact that the Company may not receive funds from its counterparties at the expected time. This risk is managed by maintaining a balance between continuity of funding and flexibility through the use of overdrafts and trade receivables.
The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our financial statements and the related notes appearing elsewhere in this Quarterly Report. This discussion and analysis may contain forward-looking statements based on assumptions about our future business. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors.
This Quarterly Report contains forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements are contained principally in, but not limited to, the sections entitled “Management’s Discussion and Analysis or Plan of Operation,” “Business” and those listed in our other Securities and Exchange Commission filings. Forward-looking statements provide our current expectations or forecasts of future events. Forward-looking statements include statements about our expectations, beliefs, plans, objectives, intentions, assumptions and other statements that are not historical facts. Words or phrases such as “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “ongoing,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “plan,” “potential,” “predict,” “project” or similar words or phrases, or the negatives of those words or phrases, may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not necessarily mean that a statement is not forward-looking.
Forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties and are based on potentially inaccurate assumptions that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expected or implied by the forward-looking statements. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in forward-looking statements for many reasons. Accordingly, you should not unduly rely on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this Report.
Unless required by law, we undertake no obligation to publicly revise any forward-looking statement to reflect circumstances or events after the date of this Report or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. You should, however, review the factors and risks we describe in the reports we will file from time to time with the SEC after the date of this Report.
Management cautions that these statements are qualified by their terms and/or important factors, many of which are outside of our control, and involve a number of risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results and events to differ materially from the statements made, including, but not limited to, the following:
● actual or anticipated fluctuations in our quarterly and annual operating results;
● actual or anticipated product constraints;
● decreased demand for our products resulting from changes in consumer preferences;
● product and services announcements by us or our competitors;
● loss of any of our key executives;
● regulatory announcements, proceedings or changes;
● announcements in the touch technology community;
● competitive product developments;
● intellectual property and legal developments;
● mergers or strategic alliances in the touch technology industry;
● any business combination we may propose or complete;
● any financing transactions we may propose or complete; or
● broader industry and market trends unrelated to its performance.
Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance, or achievements.
Plan of Operation
The ability of our Company to achieve our business objectives is contingent upon our success in raising additional capital until adequate revenues are realized from operations.
We are a manufacturer (via 3rd party contract manufacture) of touch based visual communication products for education and corporate worldwide marketplaces. Our mission is to design and manufacture high quality technology products. We manufacture a large range of touch screen and touch board products to suite all types of application from pen input wireless tablets, to large enameled steel touch-sensitive interactive whiteboards and large interactive Liquid Crystal Displays (“LCD”). Our products stand out from our competition in terms of our design, functionality and price offering. Our customers seek our products as they provide them with a different point of entry to the market in terms of price, quality of design and margin. Currently, demand for our products is exceeding our ability to supply.
In the past three years, we have designed, manufactured, launched, developed and sold four new products as well as established the business from scratch.
We manufacture touch-based visual communication products for the education and corporate worldwide marketplaces. Our products stand out from our competition in terms of design, functionality and price offering. Our customers seek our products as they provide them a different point of entry to the market in terms of price, quality of design and margin.
Our keys to success are:
1. Establish and maintain working relationships and contractual agreements with distribution and Original Equipment Manufacturer (“OEM”) customers;
2. Increase our profit margin by lowering the import and raw material costs by bulk purchasing from vendors;
3. By increasing our purchasing power, we can increase our stock holding and lowering delivery times to customers thus enabling further sales growth; and
4. Effectively communicate with our current and potential customers, through targeted efforts, our position as a differentiated provider of the highest quality of margin laden touch-based communication products.
On May 7, 2010, we (which at that time was called Hotel Management Systems, Inc.), entered into a Share Exchange Agreement with TouchIT Tech KS, the stockholders of TouchIT Tech KS, TouchIT Ed, and the stockholders of Touch Ed. Both TouchIT Tech KS and TouchIT Ed are corporations formed under the laws of Turkey and are based in Istanbul, Turkey. The Closing took place on May 7, 2010.
In connection with the closing of the Share Exchange Agreement, on May 7, 2010, we entered into a Subscription Agreement (the “Subscription Agreement”) with certain investors for the sale of up to $1,500,000 (the “Purchase Price”), which was represented by the convertible promissory notes of our Company (“Note” or “Notes”) and share purchase warrants (the “Warrants”) to purchase shares of Common Stock (the “Warrant Shares”). Due to the non-provision of the second $750,000 by certain investors, we cancelled the promissory Notes for $250,000 and $500,000 including the underlying Warrant Shares.
On February 16, 2011, we borrowed Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000) (the “Advance”) from TCA Global Credit Master Fund, LP (the “Lender”) pursuant to a revolving credit facility evidenced by a Credit Agreement with an effective date of November 30, 2010 (the “Credit Agreement”).
The Credit Agreement evidences a revolving credit facility in the minimum principal amount of $250,000, which subject to Lender approval may be increased up to One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) (the “Loan”). Interest on the Advance accrues at the rate of eight percent (8%) per annum and the outstanding and accrued interest is due and payable on a bi-monthly basis. The outstanding principal amount is due on February 16, 2012.
The Loan is also evidenced by a revolving note (the “Note”). The Credit Agreement and Note are secured by, among other things, (i) the Security Agreement made by and between our Company and the Lender pursuant to which the Borrower has granted a security interest in all of the Borrower's assets to the Lender (the "Security Agreement"), (ii) a personal guaranty and validity guaranty executed by Andrew Brabin, Chief Financial Officer of our Company, and (iii) a personal guaranty and validity guaranty executed by RecepTanisman, the then Chief Executive Officer of our Company.
Pursuant to the Credit Agreement, on February 16, 2011, our Company issued to the Lender One Hundred Thousand (100,000) shares of our common stock, par value at $0.001 per share (the “Restricted Shares”), which have piggy back registration rights as part of any registration statement filed by our Company and full ratchet rights and anti-dilution rights during the six months following February 16, 2011. Furthermore, we also issued to Lender Twenty-Five Thousand (25,000) shares of our Company's Series A convertible preferred stock, par value of $0.001, with such shares shall be converted into shares of common stock of our Company on February 16, 2012 upon the satisfaction of certain conditions (including if the value of the Restricted Shares is less than $45,000 on February 16, 2012 based on the average closing price for the 30 trading days prior thereto). On the 28th of June 2011, the economic of the preferred shares to the Lender was increased to $65,000 in consideration for extended terms on invoices presented in a slow sales period.
The Credit Agreement also includes customary representations and warranties and affirmative and negative covenants, including, among others, payment of certain customary fees and expenses (including commitment, monitoring and diligence fees), covenants relating to financial reporting, maintenance of property and insurance, incurrence of liens and/or other indebtedness. The Credit Agreement also contains customary provisions for events of default, remedies in circumstances of default, required notices, governing law and jurisdiction of governance.
Upon the occurrence of an event of default (as defined in the Credit Agreement), the Lender may, at its option, declare its commitments to us to be terminated and all obligations and commitments to be immediately due and payable. For all the terms and conditions of the Credit Agreement, the Security Agreement and the Note, reference is hereby made to such documents respectively filed as Exhibits 10.1, 10.2 and 10.3 as part of the Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on February 23, 2011. All statements made herein concerning the foregoing document are qualified by reference to said Exhibits.
On March 1, 2012 we terminated the CreditAgreement with TCA Global Credit Master Fund LLP (“TCA”) by paying off the principal of $250 000. Management decided not to renew the agreement as we were actively seeking areplacement credit facility for the year ahead. The decision to close the credit line from TCA is due to Management’s belief that we were in a position to secure a similar arrangement with another Lender that could provide better rates than TCA. Subsequently, on April 11, 2012 the company entered into a factoring agreement by means of a Master Purchase Agreement (“MPA”) with Bibby International Trade Finance (“BITF”) for a receivables facility of up to $250 000.The MPA evidences a revolving credit facility in the maximum principal amount of $250,000, which subject to Lender approval may be increased. The MPA details the facility that has no management fees, and initial setup fee of $1000 was paid to BITF and that the Lender must be presented with a minimum of $50 000 of receivables each month in order not to attract a $600 penalty fee. Receivables sold to BITF under the MPA are guaranteed by the Company as well as personally by Andrew Stuart Brabin.
We have now completed the development and the establishment of a production line in Taiwan for a new range of Interactive LCD products. These products includeInteractive LCDs, with and without an embedded PC in sizes from 32” to 82”.The unique feature for the range of LCDs is that they do not require a driver to be installed, nor do they require any form of calibration by the user. These are true plug and play devices. All of these products are full high definition and touch-based and include options of multiple input “multi-touch”. We have also launched the TouchIT Fusion which is three interactive products in one. An Interactive LCD, and Interactive Easel and an Interactive Table. This is a revolutionary product as it takes us into new group collaboration markets.
We have seeded units into the United States, Australia and the Middle East for the new LCD product line. The company has received excellent feedback on these models and Management expects that by Quarter 4 2012, the LCD range will be 40% of revenue. The LCD range represents a higher ticket item which will impact revenues and also presents a greater margin opportunity which Management believes will have a positive impact on profits.
We have continued our efforts of expanding our product line through the K thru 12 markets as well as the higher Educational market. We are working on opportunities in Michigan, Mississippi, Los Angeles and higher educational institutions in Upstate NY and NJ.
We have expanded our reseller base with PCMall.gov, Cascade, US Markerboard and look to expand further into the Canadian and South American marketplaces with several interested parties looking at the TouchIT product lines.
We have had additional interest from the US government on our interactive boards and Interactive LCD. Subsequently, the US Government has purchased sample units of the new TouchIT LCD Duo.
We have targeted the retail marketplace and partnered with the Sales and Marketing Team, Berberian Associates Group covering New England, Florida, Midwest and the South in order to take TouchIT Technologies' product line to the retail, online, educational and enterprise channels.Established for over 30 years, Berberian Associates have a wealth of experience in Sales and Marketing of technology products. They represent a host of brands and have the necessary infrastructure to help grow businesses. Berberian Associates completed sales training on the products and began the product introductions to some of the largest retailers in the USA.Companies that have expressed initial interest are Tech Depot, Tiger Direct and Sam’s Club. We have singed initial vendor agreements with Costco and Sam’s Club.Sam’s Club are currently uploading the products into their online portfolio ready for resale in Q2 2012.
We have signed a vendor agreement with Office Max in the United States of America. Office Max is currently undergoing a training program and the product line is being loaded into their website. We have also committed to being in the Office Max Maxi Catalogue which is released in Q4 2012 ready for 2013.
We entered the Australian market place by partnering with Ingram Micro PTY late in 2011. Ingram Micro is currently working on several large projects which encompass both the Interactive Whiteboard and the LCD product lines.
We entered into discussions with a new partner for the Italian market place, Satnet SRL. Satnetare due to receive their first order in Q2 2012.
We have continued our expansion into the Middle East with presentations made directly to the Ministry of Education and the company has also seen success in equipping the Tabuk University throughout with Interactive Whiteboards.
We will continue to look into the viability of an OEM offering of a content software that is suitable for both 7-11 and 11-16 age groups. If concluded, the software will be sold in conjunction with our existing products to strengthen the product portfolio.
Last, we have undertaken and completed significant research and development of new technologies for a low cost interactive whiteboard. We are evaluating both electromagnetic and CCD camera systems to enable our future Interactive Whiteboards to remain very competitive on price. We are also ready to launch an LED range of Interactive Touch Screens in sizes from 42” to 80”
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.
CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES
The accompanying financial statements include the financial statements of TouchIT Tech KS and TouchIT Ed. Although not significant, it should be noted that inter-company transactions and balances do exist and have not been consolidated. TouchIT Tech KS and TouchIT Ed together are also referred to as the “Company.”
This management's discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based on the financial statements of both TouchIT Tech and TouchIT Ed, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements as well as the reported net sales and expenses during the reporting periods. On an ongoing basis, we will evaluate these estimates and assumptions. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other factors that we believe are 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.
We believe that the following accounting policies are the most critical to aid you in fully understanding and evaluating this management discussion and analysis:
Basis of presentation financial statements:
Our Company maintains its books of account and prepares its statutory financial statements in accordance with accounting principles in the United States of America and tax legislation. The accompanying financial statements are based on the statutory records, with adjustments and reclassifications, for the purpose of fair presentation in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (“US GAAP”).
There are inter-company transactions that have not been consolidated on these financial statements.
Revenue is measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable. Revenue is reduced for customer returns, rebates, and other similar allowances.
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value. Costs, including an appropriate portion of fixed and variable overhead expenses, are assigned to inventories held by the method most appropriate to the particular class of inventory being valued on the weighted average basis. Net realizable value represents the estimated selling price less all estimated costs of completion and costs necessary to deliver service.
Property, plant and equipment:
Property, plant and equipment are carried at cost less accumulated depreciation and any accumulated impairment losses, if any. Depreciation is charged so as to write off the cost of assets, other than land and construction in progress, over their estimated useful lives, using straight line method. The estimated useful lives, residual values and depreciation method are reviewed at each year end, with the effect of any changes in estimate accounted for on a prospective basis.
Assets held under finance leases are depreciated over their expected useful lives on the same basis as owned assets or, where shorter, the term of the relevant lease. The gain or loss arising on the disposal or retirement of an item of property, plant and equipment is determined as the difference between the sales proceeds and the carrying amount of the asset and is recognized in profit or loss.
The ranges of estimated useful lives are as follows:
Shipping and handling:
Shipping and handling costs related to costs of the raw material purchased is included in cost of revenues.
Research and development costs:
Research and development costs are expensed as incurred. The costs of material and equipment that are acquired or constructed for research and development activities, and have alternative future uses, either in research and development, marketing, or sales, are classified as property and equipment or depreciated over their estimated useful lives.
Company reporting year end:
We use a calendar year as our fiscal year ending December 31.
