Quarterly Report


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

You should read the following description of our financial condition and results of operations in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included in this quarterly report and the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2012.

This section includes a number of forward-looking statements that reflect our current views with respect to future events and financial performance. Forward-looking statements are often identified by words like "believe," "expect," "estimate," "anticipate," "intend," "project" and similar expressions, or words which, by their nature, refer to future events. You should not place undue certainty on these forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from our predictions.

Overview

We organize events and parties in which guests bring their unwanted jewelry, scrap gold and silver, coins and other gold and silver items to sell to us. Our events are centered around home and office parties hosted primarily by individuals. We will also support organizations by holding fundraising events hosted by churches and other charitable or religious organizations. A Gold Party Payday event host typically receives 10% of the gross proceeds received at the event. The host will also receive a bonus equal to 5% of the gross proceeds received at the first party or event that is booked by a guest who attended the original event. To date, we have organized 18 parties, purchasing approximately $15,850 in gold and silver items. In May 2012, we sold approximately $3,400 in gold items and, in July 2012, we sold approximately $600 in gold items to a metal refiner and we are currently holding approximately $12,300 in additional gold and silver items in inventory. We expect to hold one to two parties per month on average in 2013, and are currently scheduling appointments. Two to 15 people have attended each of our parties and we expect that number of guests to be consistent at future events.

Event guests have their items tested, measured, weighed and appraised at the party and they receive an offer on the spot, based on the quality and quantity of the precious metals contained in the items and prevailing gold and silver prices. Event guests who accept the offer and sell their items to us receive a corporate check at that time. We keep purchased items separated for at least three days in case a seller changes his or her mind and wants a refund minus a 10% processing fee.

We pay an event guest based on the estimated appraised value of the items purchased, less a deduction determined by reference to the competitive discounts charged by jewelry stores and pawnshops in the central Kentucky area, as well as mail-in gold services. Following the event, we deliver the purchased items to a refinery to melt down the items into a solid form to produce pure gold, silver and other precious metals. This solid form is then tested for purity and payment from the refinery to us will be based on the true value of the metal. We estimate that we will be paid approximately 90% to 95% of the daily gold spot value, given the volume of gold and silver items we have, based on our two sales of gold items in 2012. We expect this payout ratio to remain consistent throughout 2013. We are paid by the refinery approximately three business days following melting and testing. Our gross profit would represent the difference between the sales proceeds received from the refinery and the cost of scrap gold and silver and bullion coins purchased from guests, less any other costs classified as cost of goods sold.

Revenue Recognition

We seek to derive revenues in two different ways.

First, we estimate our inventory using a scrap gold/silver calculator after the gold and silver items purchased from individuals at parties are measured, tested and weighed. We will use publicly available sources to obtain daily spot prices to input into these calculations.

We will then ship the inventory to the refineries and will keep such inventory as an asset until it has been received, weighed and had its purity tested by the refinery. The refinery agrees to pay us at a certain percentage of the spot price of gold and silver being used the day that the refinery melts and tests the metal and we recognize the revenue when the collectability is reasonably assured. We assess the collectability based on a number of factors, including the refinery's creditworthiness. We do not request collateral from the refinery. If we determine that collection of accounts receivable resulting from the sales of the gold and silver is not reasonably assured, we will defer the revenue recognition and recognize revenue at the time collection becomes reasonably assured, which is generally upon receipt of cash.

Our gross profit bears the risk of change, either upwards or downwards because the spot price of gold and silver is used the day that the refinery melts and tests the metal, not the date that it was purchased and recorded as inventory.

Some refineries offer a "lock-in" price over the telephone. During periods of volatility in the spot prices of gold and silver, the lock-in method may be preferred as compared with waiting five to ten business days for gold and silver to be delivered to the refinery and melted, weighed and tested to determine the value.

The second way is when gold and silver prices are low, we buy gold and silver bullion/coins for several clients. We follow Section 605-45-45 (formerly EITF 99-19) ("ASC Section 605-45-45") of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification for revenue recognition for this revenue stream by reporting revenue on a net basis, since we (a) do not act as principal in the transaction, (b) take no title to the products, (c) have no risks and rewards of ownership, such as the risk of loss for collection, delivery or returns, and (d) do act as an agent or broker (including performing services, in substance, as an agent or broker) with compensation on a commission or fee basis on sales. We determined that we should report revenue based on the net amount billed to a customer when considering each of the following eight indicators of gross revenue reporting listed in ASC Paragraph 605-45-45-4 through 605-45-45-14 as specified (1) we are not the primary obligor in the arrangement; (2) we have no general inventory risk (before customer order is placed or upon customer return); (3) we have no latitude in establishing price; (4) we do not change the product or perform part of the service; (5) we have discretion in supplier selection (i.e., we have multiple suppliers for the products ordered by a customer and discretion to select the supplier that will provide the product(s) or service(s) ordered by a customer); (6) we are not involved in the determination of product or service specifications (i.e., we do not determine the nature, type, characteristics or specifications of the product(s) or service(s) ordered by the customer); (7) we have no physical loss inventory risk of purchased inventories after customer order; and (8) we have no credit risk.

Revenue to date is classified as commission fee revenue because it consists of the sale of gold bullion coins which were purchased by us on behalf of clients.

The cost of goods sold, which is only for the first revenue stream described above, consists of scrap gold and silver and bullion coins purchased, plus the shipping costs to deliver them to the precious metal refineries.

Limited Operating History

We are considered a development stage company in accordance with the guidance contained in the Codification Topic No. 915, "Development Stage Entities." We are still devoting substantially all of our efforts toward establishing our business, and our planned principal operations have commenced in a limited capacity. All losses accumulated since inception have been considered as part of our development stage activities.

We have commenced limited operations and will require additional capital to recruit personnel to operate our business and to implement our business plan.

Matters that May or Are Currently Affecting Our Business

The main challenges and trends that could affect or are affecting our financial results include:

Decrease in gold and silver prices - Gold and silver prices have historically been subject to fluctuations and are affected by numerous factors beyond our control. Stronger gold and silver prices have resulted in a greater interest by Americans in selling their unwanted jewelry, scrap gold and silver, coins and other gold and silver items. There can be no assurance that this interest will continue at its current level and, when gold and silver prices do decrease, we expect fewer Americans will be interested in selling their gold and silver items, resulting in a lack of supply of goods to us and more competitive conditions, which will negatively impact our financial results.

Direct competition with jewelry stores and pawnshops - Some jewelry stores and pawnshops benefit from occupying "brick and mortar" storefronts, being located in retail areas and utilizing print and other advertising in a given community, thus being more visible to potential sellers of gold and silver items, than we are. In addition, most of these jewelry stores and pawnshops have greater financial resources than we do. These additional resources may allow these competitors to continue in the business longer than we can under adverse market conditions.

Availability of additional capital - Our growth will depend on the availability of additional capital. We have limited commission fee revenue and losses and we may be dependent on non-banking or traditional sources of capital, which tend to be more expensive. Any increase in cost of goods sold will further tighten cash reserves.

Results of Operations

In May 2012, we sold approximately $3,400 in gold items and, in July 2012, we sold approximately $600 in gold items to a metal refiner. Costs associated with these sales were approximately $3,600. For the period from August 16, 2011 (date of inception) to March 31, 2013, we had $4,141 in total revenue earned during the development stage, including $120 in commission fee revenue. The commission revenues were generated from the purchase of gold bullion coins for clients, which are not our normal revenue generating activity of organizing events and parties in which guests bring their unwanted jewelry, scrap gold and silver, coins and other gold and silver items to sell to us. The above revenue less the cost of goods sold yielded a gross profit of $533. Operating expenses for the period totaled $47,483, resulting in a net loss of $(47,438). Expenses for the period consisted of $45,892 in professional fees and $1,591 for general and administrative expenses. No income tax provision has been made for the period from August 16, 2011 (date of inception) to March 31, 2013.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2013, we had $24,332 cash on hand and $1,713 in inventory. We anticipate that our cash position is not sufficient to fund current operations. We have no lending relationships with commercial banks and are dependent upon the completion of one or more financings or equity raises to fund our continuing operations. We anticipate that we will seek additional capital through debt or equity financings. While we are aggressively pursuing financing, there can be no assurance that we will be successful in our capital raising efforts. Any additional equity financing may result in substantial dilution to our stockholders.

Our financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. Since inception, we have generated minimal commission fee revenue and accumulated operating losses. In addition, we do not have sufficient working capital to meet current operating needs for the next 12 months, as described above. All of these factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

Our officers and directors have not, as of the date of this report, loaned any funds to us. Except as indicated below, there are no such formal commitments or arrangements to advance or loan funds to us in the future.

Tatum L. Morita, our President, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, has agreed to loan us up to $50,000 in order to fund our working capital expenditure requirements through June 2013, as and when such funding is necessary and required. Any such loan will be evidenced by a non interest-bearing, unsecured promissory note payable if and when we have the financial resources to do so, as determined by our board at that time.

Seasonality

Although our operating history is limited, we do not consider our business to be seasonal.

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 effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenue or expenses, results of operations, liquidity or capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to an investor in our securities.

Cash Requirements

We believe that our $24,332 in cash on hand at March 31, 2013, limited cash flow from operations to date from our sale of approximately $3,400 in gold items to a precious metal refiner in May 2012, and limited cash flow from our sale of approximately $39,806 of common stock (net of $196 in transaction costs) will meet part of our present cash needs. However, we will require additional cash resources, by selling equity or seeking loans, to meet our expected capital expenditure and working capital needs. We estimate that we will require approximately $25,000, or approximately $2,000 per month, in capital to continue as a going concern over the next 12 months. The sale of additional equity securities could result in dilution to our stockholders. The incurrence of indebtedness would result in increased debt service obligations and could require us to agree to operating and financial covenants that would restrict our operations. Financing may not be available in amounts or on terms acceptable to us, if at all. Any failure by us to raise additional funds on terms favorable to us, or at all, could limit our ability to expand or continue our business operations and could harm our overall business prospects.

These conditions indicate a material uncertainty that casts significant doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. We require additional debt or equity financing to have the necessary funding to continue operations and meet our obligations. We have continued to adopt the going concern basis of accounting in preparing our financial statements.

Emerging Growth Company

We are an "emerging growth company" under the federal securities laws and will be subject to reduced public company reporting requirements. In addition,
Section 107 of the JOBS Act also provides that an "emerging growth company" can take advantage of the extended transition period provided in Section 7(a)(2)(B) of the Securities Act for complying with new or revised accounting standards. In other words, an "emerging growth company" can delay the adoption of certain accounting standards until those standards would otherwise apply to private companies. We are choosing to take advantage of the extended transition period for complying with new or revised accounting standards.
