Notes to Unaudited Condensed Financial Statements
For the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 and Period from Inception (August 24, 2009) to June 30, 2011

 
 
1.
GENERAL ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS
 
Boston Therapeutics, Inc. (the “Company”) was formed as a Delaware corporation on August 24, 2009 under the name “Avanyx Therapeutics, Inc.”  On November 10, 2010, the Company entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger (the “Merger Agreement”) with Boston Therapeutics, Inc., a New Hampshire corporation (“Target”) providing for the merger of Target into the Company with the Company being the surviving entity (the “Merger”),  the issuance by the Company of 4,000,000 shares of common stock to the stockholders of Target in exchange for 100% of the outstanding common stock of Target, and the change of the Company’s name to Boston Therapeutics, Inc.  David Platt, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Financial Officer, is a founder of Target and was a director and minority stockholder of Target at the time of the Merger.  Dr. Platt received 400,000 shares of the Company’s common stock in connection with the Merger.  Kenneth A. Tassey, Jr., who became the Company’s President shortly after the Merger, was the Chief Executive Officer, President and principal stockholder of Target at the time of the Merger. Mr. Tassey received 3,200,000 shares of our common stock in connection with the Merger.
 
The Company’s primary business is the development, manufacture and commercialization of therapeutic drugs and dietary supplements with a focus on glyco-pathology, a specialized field involving understanding the importance of carbohydrates in biochemistry and progression of diseases.  The Company is currently focusing on three products, IPOXYN™, an anti-hypoxia drug that the Company is currently developing, PAZ-320, an oral drug candidate for diabetes and SUGARDOWN™, a complex carbohydrate-based dietary supplement that the Company is currently marketing.
 
On June 24, 2011, the Company granted Advance Pharmaceutical Company (“APC”) exclusive rights to market and sell SUGARDOWN™ in China.  Under terms of the agreement, the Company will manufacture and supply product in bulk for APC. APC will be responsible for the packaging, marketing and distribution of SUGARDOWN™ in the region. APC will also have rights to develop and manufacture SUGARDOWN™ for commercial sale in the region, subject to establishment of quality assurance and quality control standards set forth by the Company. In addition to the licensing agreement, APC made an equity investment in the Company to support clinical trials on SUGARDOWN™.

The Company has minimal operations and is considered to be in the development stage as of June 30, 2011.
 
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern.  The Company is a recently formed entity with limited resources and operating history.  As shown in the accompanying financial statements, the Company has incurred net losses of $578,832 for the period from August 24, 2009 (inception) to June 30, 2011, however, has negative working capital of $72,634 as of June 30, 2011.  The future of the Company is dependent upon its ability to obtain financing and upon future profitable operations from the development of its new business opportunities.

1.             GENERAL ORGANIZATION AND BUSINESS…continued
 
Management has plans to seek additional capital through private placements and public offerings of its common stock.  The Company filed a Registration Statement on Form S-1 to the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) which became effective October 15, 2010.  The Company is planning to sell in a self-directed offering 10,000,000 shares of newly issued common stock.  On June 21, 2011, the Company agreed to sell 2,035,469 shares for $508,867 in a private placement offering.
 
There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in accomplishing its objectives.  Without such additional capital, the Company may be required to cease operations.
 
These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts of and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the Company cannot continue in existence.
 
2.             SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING PRACTICES
 
Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("US GAAP") for interim financial information and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission for quarterly reports on Form 10-Q. It is suggested that these condensed financial statements be read in conjunction with the Company's financial statements for its year ended December 31, 2010 included in its Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, the statements contain all adjustments, including normal recurring adjustments necessary in order to present fairly the financial position as of June 30, 2011 and the results of operations for the three and six month periods ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 and the period from inception (August 24, 2009) through June 30, 2011.
 
The year-end balance sheet data was derived from the audited financial statements but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
The results disclosed in the Statements of Operations for the three and six month period ended June 30, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year.
 
Use of Estimates
 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP 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 the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.

2.             SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING PRACTICES…continued
 
Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
For purposes of reporting within the statement of cash flows, the Company considers all cash on hand, cash accounts not subject to withdrawal restrictions or penalties, and all highly liquid investments with original maturities of 90 days or less at the time of acquisition to be cash equivalents.
 
The Company maintains its cash in institutions insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”).
 
Revenue Recognition
 
The Company generates revenues from sales of SUGARDOWN™.  Revenue is recognized when there is persuasive evidence that an arrangement exists, the price is fixed and determinable, the product is shipped and collectability is reasonably assured.  Revenue is recognized as product is shipped from an outside fulfillment operation.  Terms of product sales contain no contractual rights of return or multiple elements.  In practice the Company has not experienced or granted returns of product.  Shipping fees charged to customers are included in revenue and shipping costs are included in costs of sales.
 
Inventory
 
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out) or market, not in excess of net realizable value.  The Company capitalizes nonrefundable advance payments for goods or services that will be used or rendered for future research and development activities.
 
Intangible Assets, net
 
Intangible assets consist of identifiable finite-lived assets acquired in business acquisitions. Acquired intangible assets are recorded at fair value on the date of acquisition. Certain acquired intangible assets, including developed technology, products and trade names, are amortized over their economic useful lives on a straight line basis.
 
Goodwill
 
The Company follows the guidance of Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 350, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets. Under ASC 350, goodwill and certain other intangible assets with indefinite lives are not amortized, but instead are reviewed for impairment at least annually.
 
The Company tests goodwill for impairment in the fourth quarter of each year or more frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that the asset might be impaired. The test is based on a comparison of the reporting unit’s book value to its estimated fair value.

2.             SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING PRACTICES…continued
 
Loss per Share
 
Basic net loss per share is computed based on the net loss for the period divided by the weighted average actual shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per share is computed based on the net loss for the period divided by the weighted average number of common shares and common equivalent shares outstanding during each period unless the effect of such common equivalent shares would be anti-dilutive. Common stock equivalents represent the dilutive effect of the assumed exercise of certain outstanding stock options using the treasury stock method.    The weighted average number of common shares for the three months ended June 30, 2011 did not include 138,577 options because of their anti-dilutive effect.
 
Income Taxes
 
The Company accounts for income taxes under the asset and liability method. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax basis. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or be settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is provided when it is more likely than not that some portion of the gross deferred tax asset will not be realized.
 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
As of June 30, 2011, the carrying value of cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable, advances payable – related party and accrued expenses approximated fair value due to their short-term nature.
 
 
Stock-Based Compensation
 
 
The Company selected the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to determine the fair value of stock option awards. Stock-Based Compensation is recognized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service periods for the awards.
 
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2010-28, Intangibles – Goodwill and Other (Topic 350) - When to Perform Step 2 of the Goodwill Impairment Test for Reporting Units with Zero or Negative Carrying Amounts - a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force, modifies Step 1 of the goodwill impairment test for reporting units with zero or negative carrying amounts. For those reporting units, an entity is required to perform Step 2 of the goodwill impairment test if it is more likely than not that a goodwill impairment exists. In determining whether it is more likely than not that a goodwill impairment exists, an entity should consider whether there are any

adverse qualitative factors indicating that an impairment may exist. The amendments are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2010.   The Company will perform the annual impairment test during Q4 and is evaluating the impact on the financial statements.
 
3.             STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY
 
The Company is authorized to issue up to 5,000,000 shares of its $0.001 par value preferred stock and up to 100,000,000 shares of its $0.001 par value common stock.
 
Preferred Stock
 
No shares of preferred stock have been issued and the terms of such preferred stock have not been designated by the Board of Directors.
 
Common Stock
 
On August 26, 2009, the Company issued 10,000,000 shares of its $0.001 par value common stock to its two founders.  Eight million shares were issued to the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Chairman of the Board of Directors and co-founder, in exchange for a patent, a provisional patent and know-how. In accordance with ASC 845-10-S99, Transfers of Non-monetary Assets from Promoters or Shareholders, the transfer of nonmonetary assets to a company by its shareholders in exchange for stock prior to the Company’s initial public offering should be recorded at the transferor’s historical cost basis determined under GAAP.  As a result, the value of the patent, provisional patent and know-how was valued at the CEO’s historical cost basis of zero because no records exist to support an historical cost basis in accordance with GAAP. The patent and provisional patent were assigned to the Company on December 10, 2009.  The remaining 2,000,000 shares were issued to the co-founder for $10,000 in cash.
 
On March 31, 2010, the Company issued 20,000 shares of common stock for $10,000 cash to an investor.  On April 9, 2010, the Company issued 11,236 shares of common stock in exchange for $11,236 to a related party.  On October 4, 2010, the Company issued 10,000 shares for $10,000 cash to an investor.  On November 6, 2010, the Company issued 4,000,000 shares of common stock in connection with the merger transaction described in Note 1.  On June 21, 2011, the Company agreed to sell 2,035,469 shares for $508,867 in a private placement offering of which $500,000 was received by the Company during the three month period ending June 30, 2011.  No other issuances of preferred or common stock have been made.

4.             STOCK OPTION PLAN AND STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION
 
The 2010 Stock Plan
 
The Company adopted a stock option plan entitled “The 2010 Stock Plan”  (2010 Plan) under which the Company may grant options to purchase up to 5,000,000 shares of common stock.  As of June 30, 2011, there were 138,577 options outstanding under the 2010 Plan.
 
During the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company granted options to purchase 78,400 shares of common stock with an exercise price of $1.85 to a consultant. The options began vesting January 1, 2011 at a rate of 9,800 options per quarter until the final vesting date of October 1, 2012.  Stock-based compensation relating to this grant was $333 for the six month period ending June 30, 2011 and the unrecognized compensation at June 30, 2011 was $1,043.  The options have a contractual life of 4.83 years.
 
On January 19, 2011, the Company granted 421,237 shares of common stock with an exercise price of $0.25 to a consultant.  The options began vesting March 1, 2011 at a rate of 20,059 per month.  As of March 31, 2011, 20,059 options were vested.  On April 6, 2011 the Company terminated its engagement with this consultant effective May 6, 2011.  An additional 40,118 of the consultant’s options had vested as of the termination date, and the remaining 361,060 options were canceled.  The total options vested at the date of termination were 60,177 which have a fair value of $0.21 and an estimated remaining life of 9.75 years.  The total stock-based compensation for these options is $12,785 which will be expensed over the consultant’s service period of approximately 4 months.  Stock-based compensation relating to this grant was $4,261 and $12,785 for the three and six month periods ending June 30, 2011 and there is no unrecognized compensation at June 30, 2011.
 
The Company used the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to determine the fair value of the option grants and the related compensation expense. The Company recorded $4,261 and $13,118 in compensation expense for the three  and six month periods ended June 30, 2011 related to the non-employee options.  The Company measures and recognizes compensation expense as they vest for stock-based awards issued to non-employees over the service period.
 
Expected volatility for the options issued during the three months ended March 31, 2011 was 90%. The Company does not have a history of market prices of their common stock, and as such volatility is estimated using historical volatilities of similar public entities.
 
The risk-free interest rate used for each grant is equal to the U.S. Treasury yield in effect at the time of grant for instruments with a similar expected life.   The risk-free interest rate was 0.60% for all 2011 grants.

7.             COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES
 
During the three months ended March 31, 2011, the Company entered into an agreement with a consultant whereby the consultant accrued monthly fees, commencing February 15, 2011, of $10,000 to be paid should the Company raise $1,000,000 in equity capital from investors prior to January 15, 2012.  The Company terminated the agreement with the consultant in the quarter ended June 30, 2011.  Should the Company raise $1,000,000 in equity capital prior to January 15, 2012, the Company would be obligated to pay the consultant $25,000 under the terms of the agreement as of the date of termination.  Due to the uncertainties regarding the achievement of such an equity raise, the Company has not accrued for these amounts.  When it is deemed probable that this amount will be raised, the Company will recognize the $25,000 at that time.

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

The following discussion and analysis is based on, and should be read in conjunction with the unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto included elsewhere in this Form 10-Q .  This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These statements are often identified by the use of words such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “could,” “estimate,” or “continue,” and similar expressions or variations. Such forward-looking statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and other factors that could cause actual results and the timing of certain events to differ materially from future results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q represent our views as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. We anticipate that subsequent events and developments will cause our views to change. However, while we may elect to update these forward-looking statements at some point in the future, we have no current intention of doing so except to the extent required by applicable law. You should, therefore, not rely on these forward-looking statements as representing our views as of any date subsequent to the date of this Report on Form 10-Q.   

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our financial statements.

Overview

We are a development-stage company that was formed on August 24, 2009.

Our Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and founder has contributed a provisional patent, a patent and know-how to the Company.  In accordance with ASC 845-1-S99, Transfers of Non-Monetary Assets from Promoters or Shareholders, the transfer of non-monetary assets to a company by its shareholders in exchange for stock prior to the Company’s initial public offering should be recorded at the transferor’s historical cost basis determined under GAAP.  Because no records exist to support a historical cost basis in accordance with GAAP, the patent, provisional patent and know-how were valued at the CEO’s historical cost basis of zero.

On November 10, 2010, we entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Boston Therapeutics, Inc. (“BTI”).  BTI is in the business of developing, manufacturing and selling, among other things, dietary supplements including its initial product, SUGARDOWN™, a complex carbohydrate based dietary supplement based upon BTI’s proprietary processes and technology. SUGARDOWN™ is currently in the initial stage of market introduction.  We believe that SUGARDOWN™ has significant revenue and positive cash flow potential.

We issued 4,000,000 shares of common stock to the stockholders of BTI in exchange for all the outstanding common stock of BTI, and the Company’s name was changed to Boston Therapeutics, Inc.  The CEO is also a founder of BTI and was a 10% shareholder of BTI at the time of the merger. A valuation of the Company’s common stock was performed resulting in a fair value per share of $0.2466.  Based on the 4,000,000 shares of common stock issued for BTI the total consideration was valued at $986,400.  However, because the Company’s CEO, its majority shareholder, was also a 10% shareholder of BTI, 10% of BTI was valued at his historical cost basis and 90% of Target was valued at fair value.

We must raise new capital to continue our business operations and intend to use the provisional patent, patent and know-how contributed by our CEO and the assets acquired from BTI (as described in Notes 1 and 6 to the financial statements included elsewhere in this Form 10-Q) to raise capital.  We raised $508,867 from the sale of our common stock in a private placement in June 2011.  If we exhaust these funds, our CEO intends to provide minimal cash to fund critical needs until additional shares are sold to raise capital.  We anticipate the need for approximately $5,000,000 in additional funding to support the planned expansion of our operations over the next approximately 12 months.  The Company has filed a Registration Statement on Form S-1 to the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) registering a self-directed offering of 10,000,000 shares of its common stock at a price of $0.50 per share.  There is no guarantee that this offering will be successful.
 
Results of Operations

Three months ended June 30, 2011 and June 30, 2010

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2011 of $1,767 were generated from the sale of the SUGARDOWN™ product.  There was no revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2010.

Cost of goods sold for the three months ended June 30, 2011 of $1,287 consisted primarily of the cost of  the SUGARDOWN™ product and shipping and fulfillment costs.  There was no cost of goods sold for the three months ended June 30, 2010.

General and administrative expense for the three months ended June 30, 2011 was $75,459 a decrease of $7,809 or 9% from $83,268 for the three months ended June 30, 2010.  This consists primarily of legal and accounting fees associated with the Form S-1 filing and quarterly financial statements for the Company.

We had research and development expense for the three months ended June 30, 2011 of $16,072 consisting primarily of amortization of the SUGARDOWN™ product.  There was no research and development expense for the three months ended June 30, 2010.

Six months ended June 30, 2011 and June 30, 2010

Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2011 of $2,247 were generated from the sale of the SUGARDOWN™ product.  There was no revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2010.

Cost of goods sold for the six months ended June 30, 2011 of $2,250 consisted primarily of the cost of  the SUGARDOWN™ product and shipping and fulfillment costs.  There was no cost of goods sold for the six months ended June 30, 2010.

General and administrative expense for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was $150,295 an increase of $54,541 or 57% from $95,754 for the six months ended June 30, 2010.  This consists primarily of legal and accounting fees associated with the Form S-1 filing and quarterly financial statements for the Company.

We had research and development expense for the six months ended June 30, 2011 of $33,211 consisting primarily of amortization of the SUGARDOWN™ product.  There was no research and development expense for the six months ended June 30, 2010.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2011

As of June 30, 2011, we had cash of $440,410 and accounts payable and accrued expenses of $271,363.  The cash is largely attributable to the proceeds from our private placement of common stock in June 2011.
 
We have received minimal revenues from our acquisition of the SUGARDOWN™ product.  Without substantial revenue and known, adequate and available financing, there is uncertainty regarding the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

Management has plans to seek additional capital through private placements and public offerings of its common stock, including the registered self-directed offering described above.  There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in accomplishing its objectives. Without such additional capital, the Company may be required to cease operations.

Our CEO intends to continue to provide minimal cash to fund critical needs once the proceeds of the private placement are exhausted until additional shares are sold to raise capital.

Our CEO also contributed a provisional patent, a patent and know-how to the Company.  We intend to use these assets and SUGARDOWN™ to attract investors in order to raise the capital required to fund operations.

Other than our CEO's intention to provide minimal cash, we have no current commitment from our officers and directors or any of our shareholders, to supplement our operations or provide us with financing in the future.  If we are unable to raise additional capital from conventional sources and/or additional sales of stock in the future, we may be forced to curtail or cease our operations.  Even if we are able to continue our operations, the failure to obtain financing could have a substantial adverse effect on our business and financial results.  In the future, we may be required to seek additional capital by selling debt or equity securities, and we may be required to cease operations, or otherwise be required to bring cash flows in balance when we approach a condition of cash insufficiency.  The sale of additional equity or debt securities,  if accomplished,  may result in dilution to our then shareholders.  We provide no assurance that financing will be available in amounts or on terms acceptable to us, or at all.

Contractual obligations

We do not currently have any material contractual obligations.
 
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have, or are reasonably likely to have, a current or future material effect on our consolidated financial condition, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

Item 3.  Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

As a “smaller reporting company” as defined by Item 10 of Regulation S-K, we are not required to provide the information requested by this item, as provided by Regulation S-K Item 305(e).

Item 4.  Controls and Procedures

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Pursuant to Rules 13a-15(b) and 15-d-15(b) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”), the Company carried out an evaluation, with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer (“CEO/CFO”) (the Company’s principal financial and accounting officer), of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined under Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-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/CFO concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of June 30, 2011 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/CFO, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There have not been any changes in the Company's internal control over financial reporting (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act) during the fiscal period to which this report relates that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal control over financial reporting.

The Company’s management, including the Company’s CEO/CFO, does not expect that the Company’s internal control over financial reporting will prevent all errors and all fraud.  Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements.  Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree or compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
 

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

Item 1.  Legal Proceedings
 
None.

Item 1A.  Risk Factors

The following risk factors have materially changed from the similarly captioned risk factors included in the Company’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010, as amended:

IF WE DO NOT RECEIVE ADDITIONAL FUNDING, WE WOULD HAVE TO CURTAIL OR CEASE DEVELOPMENT STAGE OPERATIONS.

For the period from inception on August 29, 2009 through June 30, 2011, we had a net loss of $578,832, of which $248,295 was incurred during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010.  As of June 30, 2011, the Company had $440,410 in cash on hand.  We do not currently have sufficient capital resources to fund operations.  To stay in business, we will need to raise additional capital through public or private sales of our securities, debt financing or short-term bank loans, or a combination of the foregoing.
 
 
 
17

 

 
We will need additional capital to fully implement our business, operating and development plans.  However, additional funding from an alternate source or sources may not be available to us on favorable terms, if at all.  To the extent that money is raised through the sale of our securities, the issuance of those securities could result in dilution to our existing security holders.  If we raise money through debt financing or bank loans, we may be required to secure the financing with some or all of our business assets, which could be sold or retained by the creditor should we default in our payment obligations.  If we fail to raise sufficient funds, we would have to curtail or cease operations.
 
Management has developed what it believes is a viable plan to continue as a going concern.  The plan relies upon our ability to obtain additional sources of capital and financing.  We believe that if we can raise $5,000,000 in our public offering, which would require the offering to be fully-subscribed, it will be sufficient to provide working capital for the next year.  Our Chief Executive Officer intends to provide us with minimal cash to fund critical needs until we are able to raise additional capital from our public offering or another offering but there is no guarantee that he will do so or will do so for any extended period of time.  We have filed a post-effective amendment to our registration statement on Form S-1 registering the sale of up to 10,000,000 shares at $0.50 per share. We will need this post-effective amendment to be declared effective before we can make sales pursuant to the S-1. Presently we do not have any existing sources or plans for financing other than the public offering, a private offering of our securities and our Chief Executive Officer. If we are unable to receive additional financing, we may be required to cease operations.

OUR MANAGEMENT AND ONE SIGNIFICANT SHAREHOLDER COLLECTIVELY OWN A SUBSTANTIAL MAJORITY OF OUR COMMON STOCK.

Collectively, our officers, our directors and one significant shareholder own or exercise voting and investment control over 81% of our outstanding common stock and will continue to own over 50% of the outstanding equity of the Company assuming all of the 10,000,000 shares being offered in our public offering are ultimately sold.  As a result, investors may be prevented from affecting matters involving the Company, including:
 
●  the composition of our Board of Directors and, through it, any determination with respect to our business direction and policies, including the appointment and removal of officers;
 
●  any determinations with respect to mergers or other business combinations;
 
●  our acquisition or disposition of assets; and
 
●  our corporate financing activities.
 
Furthermore, this concentration of voting power could have the effect of delaying, deterring or preventing a change of control or other business combination that might otherwise be beneficial to our stockholders. This significant concentration of share ownership may also adversely affect the trading price for our common stock because investors may perceive disadvantages in owning stock in a company that is controlled by a small number of stockholders.

Item 2.  Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

There were no unregistered securities sold by us during the quarter ended June 30, 2011 not previously reported on a Current Report on Form 8-K.  

 
18

 

Item 3.  Defaults Upon Senior Securities
 
None.
 
Item 4.  (Removed and Reserved)
 
Item 5.  Other Information
 
On July 22 2011, we submitted a petition to declare that our Metformin Hydrochloride Chewable Tablets are suitable for consideration in an Abbreviated New Drug Application (“ANDA”) to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”).  The Reference Listed Drug at the FDA is Bristol-Myers Squibb’s Glucophage® product ([metformin hydrochloride] Tablets).   Metformin is indicated for the treatment of Type 2 diabetes and is an oral diabetes medication that helps control blood glucose levels.  Metformin is sometimes used in combination with insulin or other medications, but it is not used for the treatment of Type 1, or insulin-dependent, diabetes.  Insulin is a hormone produced by the pancreas that controls blood glucose levels by reducing the amount of glucose made by the liver and by increasing the removal of glucose from the blood by fat and muscle tissue.  Metformin acts by increasing the sensitivity of liver, muscle and fat tissue to the effects of insulin, and thereby lowers the level of glucose in the blood.  If we receive FDA approval of the ANDA we expect to offer chewable metformin as a new product separate from SUGARDOWN™.

In July 2011, we sold an additional 56,000 shares of our common stock in the private placement described in Note 1 to our unaudited condensed financial statements at a price of $0.25 per share, yielding gross proceeds to us of $14,000.  The shares described were offered and sold solely to “accredited investors” in reliance on the exemption from registration afforded by Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under Section 4(2) of the Securities Act.  In connection with the sale of these securities, the Company relied on each of the investors' written representations that it was an "accredited investor" as defined in Rule 501(a) of Regulation D.  In addition, neither the Company nor anyone acting on its behalf has offered or sold these securities by any form of general solicitation or general advertising.  At the time of their issuance, the securities will be deemed to be restricted securities for purposes of the Securities Act, and the certificates representing the securities shall bear legends to that effect.  The securities may not be resold or offered in the United States without registration or an exemption from registration.

Kenneth A. Tassey, Jr., our President, entered into an Employment Agreement with us dated August 11, 2011, pursuant to which he will receive a base salary of $36,000 per year, a severance payment equal to 50% of his annual base salary if he is terminated without cause and other benefits.  The Employment Agreement provides for an initial term through December 31, 2012 with additional one year terms until terminated.
