Note 1 - Operations and significant accounting policies (continued)
Recent Accounting Pronouncements (continued)
In January 2017, FASB issued ASU 2017-01, “Business Combinations (Topic 805): Clarifying the Definition of a Business”. The update affects all companies and other reporting organizations that must determine whether they have acquired or sold a business. The definition of a business affects many areas of accounting including acquisitions, disposals, goodwill, and consolidation. The update is intended to help companies and other organizations evaluate whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions (or disposals) of assets or businesses. The update provides a more robust framework to use in determining when a set of assets and activities is a business, and also provides more consistency in applying the guidance, reduce the costs of application, and make the definition of a business more operable. For public companies, the update is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those periods. The guidance should be applied prospectively upon its effective date. The effect of ASU 2017-01 on the consolidated financial statements will be dependent on any future acquisitions.
Note 2 – Going Concern and Management’s Plans
For the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2016, the Group incurred losses from operations of approximately $0.03 million and $0.94 million, respectively, and we used cash for operations of approximately $0.00 million and $0.27 million, respectively. As of December 31, 2016, the Group had net current liabilities (current assets less current liabilities) of $1.27 million. Further, the Group had accumulated deficits of approximately $1.66 million as of December 31, 2016, respectively, due to recurring losses since our inception.
In the opinion of the directors of the Group, the Group is able to maintain itself as a going concern in the coming year by taking into consideration of the arrangements which include, but are not limited to, the directors of the Group continue to implement measures to tighten cost controls over various operating costs and expenses of the Group and its shareholders undertake to provide adequate funds to enable the Group to meet in full all their financial obligations as they fall due. Although the Group believes it has the ability to raise funds by issuing debt, additional financing may not be available to the Group on terms acceptable to the Group or at all or such resources may not be received in a timely manner.
These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Group’s ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Group will continue as a going concern and, accordingly, do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
