Annual Report


ITEM 7. Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read together with our financial statements audited by MartinelliMick, PLLC., our independent registered public accounting firm and the related notes that are included elsewhere in this report. This discussion may contain forward-looking statements based upon current expectations that involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including those set forth under the caption "Risk Factors" or in other parts of this report. See "Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements."

Forward Looking Statements

Some of the statements contained in this Annual Report that are not historical facts are "forward-looking statements" which can be identified by the use of terminology such as "estimates," "projects," "plans," "believes," "expects," "anticipates," "intends," or the negative or other variations, or by discussions of strategy that involve risks and uncertainties. We urge you to be cautious of the forward-looking statements, that such statements, which are contained in this Annual Report, reflect our current beliefs with respect to future events and involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors affecting our operations, market growth, services, products and licenses. No assurances can be given regarding the achievement of future results, as actual results may differ materially as a result of the risks we face, and actual events may differ from the assumptions underlying the statements that have been made regarding anticipated events. Factors that may cause actual results, our performance or achievements, or industry results, to differ materially from those contemplated by such forward-looking statements include without limitation:


our ability to raise capital when needed and on acceptable terms and conditions;

our ability to attract and retain management, and to integrate and maintain technical information and management information systems;

the intensity of competition;

general economic conditions; and

other factors discussed in Risk Factors.

All forward-looking statements made in connection with this Annual Report that are attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements. Given the uncertainties that surround such statements, you are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such forward-looking statements.

Company's Plans

We began selling the Model 2500 Atmospheric Water Generator in August 2012. We shipped product to our Philippine distributor. In 2013, we will initiate product sales to our U.S. distributor. We intend to follow with the introduction of two commercial products, the WaterPro 100 and 400 in the near future. Our goal is to generate positive cash flow from product sales to fund operations at the earliest opportunity.

The WaterPro 100 has experienced development delays and may not be introduced for at least another 6 months. The WaterPro 400 is nearing field trial testing.

We are actively working to develop a global distributor network, focusing on highly qualified companies with a history of business in the drinking water industry. Currently, we have one distributor in the Southern United States and one in the Philippines. We are reviewing additional potential distributors.

Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

Revenues

Revenue from sales to date has been negligible. For the next few quarters we are projecting modest sales as we build our distribution network. For the year ended December 31, 2012, we had $19,675 in revenue compared with $54,640 for the year ended December 31, 2011. This revenue was generated from the sale of the G2 product. The decrease in revenue was attributable to lack of product availability from our manufacturer, inability to ship to the U.S. as the Company waited on the ETL mark certification, and the Company's focus on resolving intellectual property issues. We are focusing sales efforts on the Model 2500 product. Having resolved the ETL mark certification and intellectual property issues subsequent to year-end, the Company anticipates increasing revenue in 2013.

Costs and Expenses

Our primary costs going forward are related to ongoing sales and marketing, professional fees, and legal fees associated with patent maintenance. For the year ended December 31, 2012, we had $857,090, excluding $612,500 of non-cash amortization associated with stock option compensation, in general and administrative expenses compared to $515,917 in general and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2011. This increase in general and administrative expenses was primarily the result of increased spending related to research and development, intellectual property and other general and administrative expenses. The research and development expenses for the years ending December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 were $74,634 and $38,205, respectively. The $36,429 increase was due to additional development work on the Model 2500. The legal and intellectual property expenses for the years ending December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 were $143,469 and $41,536, respectively. The $101,933 increase was primarily related to acquisition and patent resolution issues. The consulting and general professional fees expenses for the years ending December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 were $493,205 and $321,972, respectively. The $171,232 increase was primarily related to the consulting contracts with Green Wise Energy and Frontier Mutual. The accounting and public reporting expenses for the years ending December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 were $45,201 and $14,286, respectively. The $30,915 increase was related to the acquisition and related SEC filings, the SEC comment letter resolution process and on-going quarterly public reporting requirements. The other general and administrative operating costs for the years ending December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 were $100,582 and $99,937, respectively. The $645 increase was related immaterial fluctuations in sales and marketing, benefits, administrative and travel.

The Company reported minimal gross profit since inception on March 18, 2010.
The gross profit was the result of shipping units internationally and miscellaneous parts throughout the world.


Liquidity and Capital Resources

For the year ended December 31, 2012, we funded our operations with debt and equity. AWGI's funding source was a private placement of equity securities and a loan transaction with Coghlan Family Corporation (CFC) in the amount of $150,000. As of December 31, 2012, the balance outstanding on this loan is $125,000.

As of December 31, 2012, we had $1,402 cash, total current assets of $164,575, total current liabilities of $466,416 and total stockholders' deficit of $249,544, compared to $439 cash, total current assets of $157,546, total current liabilities of $387,808, and total stockholders' deficit of $194,046 as of December 31, 2011.

The Company experienced negative cash flow used by operations during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012 of ($727,746) compared to December 31, 2011 of ($598,963). The Company experienced positive cash flows from investing activities of $141,516 for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to negative cash flows from investing activity of ($22,875) for the year ended December 31, 2011. The Company experienced positive cash flows from financing activities of $587,193 for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to $444,316 for the year ended December 31, 2011.

The Company's audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2012 contain a "going concern" qualification. As discussed in Note 2 of the Notes to Financial Statements, the Company has incurred losses and has not demonstrated the ability to generate cash flows from operations to satisfy its liabilities and sustain operations. Because of these conditions, our independent auditors have raised substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

Our financial objective is to make sure the Company has the cash and debt capacity to fund on-going operating activities, investments and growth. We intend to fund future capital needs through our current cash position, additional credit facilities, future operating cash flow and debt or equity financing. We are continually evaluating these options to make sure we have the best mix of capital resources to meet our needs.

Additional sources of capital in the short term may come from forecasted sales and the exercise of outstanding warrants. The Company forecasts that within the next 6 - 12 months product sales will generate sufficient positive cash flow to fund on-going operations.

As of December 31, 2012, AWG International Water Corporation has external debt of $145,000, which is comprised of the Coghlan Family Corporation (CFC) debt of $125,000 and The John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory ("JHU/APL") settlement obligation of $20,000.

The CFC note, which was due on August 1, 2012, was amended. The rate was reduced from 12% to 9%, the term was extended to May 1, 2013, and CFC agreed to cancel its 150,000 common stock purchase warrants. The Company agreed to reduce the principal balance outstanding to $100,000 with a principal payment of $25,000. The Company did not make the $25,000 payment. On February 1, 2013, the Company agreed to a second amendment which increased the principal balance to $175,000, increased the interest rate to 12%, extended the term of the note to the sooner of May 1, 2014 or the raising of $500,000 in private equity funds, and issued 150,000 common stock purchase warrants with an exercise price of $0.03 per share and an expiration date of three (3) years.

On August 2, 2010, the Company entered into a Mutual Termination Agreement with The John Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory ("JHU/APL") to be released from the terms of a license agreement. Under the terms of the Mutual Termination Agreement, the Company agreed to pay $20,000 and issue 600,000 restricted common shares, valued at $18,000 to JHU/APL as settlement of all amounts owed, within 20 days of the proposed reverse takeover by AWG International, Inc. as settlement for $131,633 of debt. As of December 31, 2012, the $20,000 note remained outstanding and the common stock had been issued. On March 26, 2013, the Company paid the $20,000 note in full.

At December 31, 2012, the Company had 3,300,000 outstanding warrants with an exercise price of $0.06, which if exercised, may contribute upwards of $198,000 to support ongoing capital needs. The warrants are immediately exercisable at the option of the warrant holders. The Company cannot be assured that the warrant holders will exercise any warrants. The warrants are subject to the Company's call if the stock trades above $0.08 per share subject for five (5) consecutive days based on volume weighted average price. The Company's right to call the warrants is subject to registering the underlying common shares with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Existing capital resources are insufficient to support continuing operations of the Company over the next 12 months. Therefore, the Company will need to obtain additional financing to support existing, as well as, continuing operations. We anticipate that the Company will need approximately $1,800,000 of additional capital over the next 12 months to execute Management's plan of operations, including the purchase of inventory, general and administrative expenses and expenditures required for the delivery of the Model 2500 and introduction of additional product models in 2013.


Management makes no assurances that adequate capital resources will be available to support continuing operations over the next 12 months. Management plans to pursue additional capital funding through multiple sources. Management believes that the outstanding warrants from the 2012 Private Placement could generate as much as $198,000. The warrant exercise period was extended to July 16, 2013.
Management is in the process of and plans to raise approximately $1,500,000 in 2013. Lastly, the Company forecasts cash flow from operations during 2013 that should begin to provide additional capital to support on-going operations.

While no assurances can be given regarding the achievement of future results as actual results may differ materially, management anticipates adequate capital resources to support continuing operations over the next 12 months through the combination of infused capital through exercised warrants, infused capital through non-public private placement, forecasted working capital from operations, and existing cash reserves.

Critical Accounting Policies

Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, which 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 revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes revenues when earned which shall be as products are shipped and services are delivered to customers or distributors. The Company shall also record accounts receivable for revenue earned but not yet collected.

Income Taxes

Income taxes are provided based upon the liability method of accounting pursuant to FASB ASC 740-10-25 Income Taxes - Recognition. Under this approach, deferred income taxes are recorded to reflect the tax consequences in future years of differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their financial reporting amounts at each year-end. A valuation allowance is recorded against deferred tax assets if management does not believe the Company has met the "more likely than not" standard imposed by FASB ASC 740-10-25-5.

Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amount used for income tax purposes.

At December 31, 2012, the Company had net operating loss carry forwards of approximately ($854,000), which will expire in 2032 and are calculated at an expected tax rate of approximately 34%.

FASB ASC 740 prescribes recognition threshold and measurement attributes for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. FASB ASC 740 also provides guidance on de-recognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure and transition. At December 31, 2012, the Company has not taken any tax positions that would require disclosure under FASB ASC 740.

Pursuant to FASB ASC 740, income taxes are provided for based upon the liability method of accounting. Under this approach, deferred income taxes are recorded to reflect the tax consequences in future years of differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and their financial reporting amounts at each year-end. A valuation allowance is recorded against deferred tax assets if management does not believe the Company has met the "more likely than not" standard imposed by FASB ASC 740 to allow recognition of such assets.

Earnings (Loss) Per Share ("EPS")

FASB ASC 260, Earnings Per Share provides for calculation of "basic" and "diluted" earnings per share. Basic earnings per share includes no dilution and is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted average common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted earnings per share reflect the potential dilution of securities that could share in the earnings of an entity similar to fully diluted earnings per share. Basic and diluted losses per share were the same, at the reporting dates, as there were no common stock equivalents outstanding.


Derivative Instruments

FASB ASC 815, Derivatives and Hedging establishes accounting and reporting standards for derivative instruments, including certain derivative instruments embedded in other contracts, and for hedging activities. They require that an entity recognize all derivatives as either assets or liabilities in the balance sheet and measure those instruments at fair value.

If certain conditions are met, a derivative may be specifically designated as a hedge, the objective of which is to match the timing of gain or loss recognition on the hedging derivative with the recognition of (i) the changes in the fair value of the hedged asset or liability that are attributable to the hedged risk; or (ii) the earnings effect of the hedged forecasted transaction. For a derivative not designated as a hedging instrument, the gain or loss is recognized in income in the period of change.

At December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company had not engaged in any transactions that would be considered derivative instruments or hedging activities.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

Long-lived assets of the Company, including the Technology Rights, are reviewed for impairment when changes in circumstances indicate their carrying value has become impaired, pursuant to guidance established in the FASB ASC 360, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets." Management considers assets to be impaired if the carrying amount of an asset exceeds the future projected cash flows from related operations (undiscounted and without interest charges). If impairment is deemed to exist, the asset will be written down to fair value, and a loss is recorded as the difference between the carrying value and the fair value. Fair values are determined based on quoted market values, discounted cash flows, or internal and external appraisals, as applicable. Assets to be disposed of are carried at the lower of carrying value or estimated net realizable value. Management has determined that there was no impairment as of December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The Company's financial instruments as defined by FASB ASC 825-10-50 include cash, trade accounts receivable, and accounts payable and accrued expenses. All instruments are accounted for on a historical cost basis, which, due to the short maturity of these financial instruments, approximates fair value at December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Inflation

It is our opinion that inflation has not had a material effect on our operations.
