3. CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE
Convertible notes payable bear interest of 6% annually which were payable upon maturity on September 25, 2011. The notes have a conversion price of $.0025. At December 31, 2011, $3,750 of these notes were past due and remain outstanding and on February 29, 2012, were convertible to 1.5 million shares of common stock.
During June, 2010, $5,000 of these notes was converted to 40,000 common shares.
During July, 2010, $10,000 of these notes was converted to 80,000 common shares.
During January, 2011, $4,000 of these notes was converted to 32,000 common shares.
During March, 2011, $50,000 of these notes together with $4,441 of accrued interest were converted to 21,776,544 common shares
During May and June of 2011, $4,000 of these notes were converted to 1,600,000 common shares.
During July, 2011, $12,500 of these notes were converted to 5,000,000 common shares.
During September, 2011, $10,750 of these notes were converted to 4,300,000 common shares.
On February 29, 2012, the final $3,750 of convertible notes and accrued interest were converted into 1,529,036 common shares.
Subsequent to this transaction, there are no outstanding convertible notes.
Upon their origination, these notes had full reset adjustments based upon the issuance of equity securities by the Company in the future, they were subjected to derivative liability treatment under Section 815-40-15 of the FASB Accounting Standard Codification (“Section 815-40-15”) (formerly FASB Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”) 07-5). These notes have been measured at fair value using a lattice model at each reporting period with gains and losses from the change in fair value of derivative liabilities recognized on the consolidated statement of operations. The convertible notes gave rise to a derivative liability which was recorded as a discount to the notes upon origination.
The embedded derivative of these notes was re-measured at December 31, 2010 yielding a gain on change in fair value of the derivative of $3,097,216, net of conversions to common stock, for the year ended December 31, 2010 and a loss of $5,799,110 for the period from September 3, 2009 through December 31, 2009. The derivative value of these notes at December 31, 2010, yielded a derivative liability at fair value of $2,701,894. During the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company converted $15,000 in convertible notes payable to 120,000 shares of common stock. The conversion resulted in a reduction of the derivative liability and increase to paid-in capital of approximately $553,000.
In March, 2011, the Company issued 21,776,544 common shares pursuant to the conversion of $50,000 in notes payable together with $4,441 of accrued interest. This conversion was negotiated to mitigate the effect of the 1:50 Reverse-Split on the note conversion price which Management determined could have significantly dilutive effects due to its resets and toxic convertible features.
In March, 2011, agreements between the Company and the remaining note holders to fix the conversion rate stated in the convertible notes effectively removed the embedded derivative from the convertible notes. Accordingly, as future conversions were no longer subject to reset, the derivative liability related to the notes was adjusted to $0 and the Company recognized a gain on the change in value of the derivative liability of $2,701,894 upon execution.
