Nature of Business and Operations

1. Nature of Business

Business

Empire Global Corp. ("Empire" or "the Company") was incorporated in the state of Delaware on August 26, 1998 as Pender International Inc. On September 30, 2005 changed its name to Empire Global Corp. and maintains its principal executive offices headquartered in Toronto, Canada.

The Company, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Multigioco Srl ("Multigioco") provides online gaming services mainly consisting of online and offline wagering as well as online web based betting shops situated throughout Italy.

Acquisition

On August 15, 2014 the Company acquired 100% of the outstanding common shares of Multigioco, an Italian corporation, in exchange for 2,000,000 restricted shares of Empire's common stock. As a result of the acquisition, Multigioco became a wholly owned subsidiary of Empire. For accounting purposes, the purchase was accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting.


Multigioco was formed on November 4, 2010 by the founder of New Gioco Srl, ("New Gioco") Beniamino Gianfelici and Doriana Gianfelici, the father-in-law and spouse respectively of our President Alessandro Marcelli, with New Gioco holding a 66% interest and Doriana Gianfelici holding a 34% interest respectively, in Multigioco.

On January 1, 2015 the Company acquired 100% of the outstanding common shares of Rifa Srl, ("Rifa") an Italian corporation making Rifa a wholly owned subsidiary. Rifa was an inactive gaming company with a Monti license and one (1) inactive Agency Concession right. Also on January 1, 2015, the Company acquired gaming assets from New Gioco which included a Bersani license and 3 Corner Concession rights as well as 1 Agency Concession right. Therefore, the Company now provides online gaming and wagering to its customers in 850 online web shops as well as 1 Agency and 3 Corner locations throughout Italy.

The financial statements of Multigioco and Rifa were included in the consolidated financial statements starting from the date of acquisition, August 15, 2014 and January 1, 2015 respectively. (See Note 4 and 5)

Going Concern

2. Going concern

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.

The Company had operating losses for the past two years. There are no assurances that management will be successful in achieving sufficient cash flows to fund the Company's working capital needs, or whether the Company will be able to refinance or renegotiate its obligations when they become due or raise additional capital through future debt or equity. These factors among others, raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. No adjustments have been made to the carrying value of assets or liabilities as a result of this uncertainty.

Management plans to increase its marketing in order to generate more revenues and to reduce certain other operating expenses. Therefore, for our next fiscal year, we anticipate that our cash flow from operations will improve. Nevertheless, the Company expects that its current cash position will be insufficient to support the Company's operations at current capacity for the next twelve month period and, therefore, will need to seek additional financing of its operations. We may rely on bank borrowing as well as capital issuances and loans from existing shareholders. We are actively exploring various proposals and alternatives in order to secure sources of financing and improve our financial position. We may raise such additional capital through the issuance of our equity securities, which may result in significant dilution to our current investors. We are also exploring potential strategic partnerships, which could provide a capital infusion to the Company.

Accounting Policies [Abstract]  
Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

3. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies


a) Basis of presentation


The accompanying consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("US GAAP"). The consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All significant inter-company transactions and balances among the Company and its subsidiaries are eliminated upon consolidation.


c) Use of estimates


The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("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 dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. These estimates and assumptions include valuing equity securities issued in share based payment arrangements, determining the fair value of our common stock, the collectability of receivables and advances and deferred taxes and related valuation allowances. Certain of our estimates, including evaluating the collectability of receivables and advances, could be affected by external conditions, including those unique to our industry, and general economic conditions. It is possible that these external factors could have an effect on our estimates that could cause actual results to differ from our estimates. We re-evaluate all of our accounting estimates at least quarterly based on these conditions and record adjustments when necessary.


d) Cash and equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments with maturities of three months or less at the time acquired to be cash equivalents. Cash equivalents represent short-term investments consisting of investment-grade corporate and government obligations, carried at cost, which approximates market value. The Company has no cash equivalents as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014.

The Company primarily places its cash with high-credit quality financial institutions, one of which is located in the United States which is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation for up to $250,000 and another which is located in Italy and is insured by the Italian government.


e) Gaming accounts receivable & allowance for doubtful accounts


The Company extends unsecured credit to its gaming client accounts in the ordinary course of business when a client applies credit to their gaming account by credit card or direct deposit either through one of our websites or at the cashier of a betting shop. The client may then place wagers or play games immediately on the credit applied.

Gaming accounts receivable represents gaming losses and deposits (credits) made by customers to their gaming accounts not yet credited to our bank accounts and subject to normal trade collection terms without discounts. The Company periodically evaluates the collectability of its gaming accounts receivable and considers the need to record or adjust an allowance for doubtful accounts based upon historical collection experience and specific customer information. Actual amounts could vary from the recorded estimates. The Company has determined that no allowance for doubtful accounts is needed for the gaming accounts receivable balances as of March 31, 2015. The Company does not require collateral to support customer receivables.

f) Gaming account balances

Gaming account balances represent customer gaming account balances that are held as credits (i.e. deposits on account, winnings, etc.) and have not as of yet been withdrawn by the customers or that customers want to keep on account for future betting. Customers can request payment from the Company at any time and the payment to customers can be made through bank wire, credit card, or actual cash disbursement from any one of our locations. Gaming account credit balances are non-interest bearing.

g) Property, plant and equipment


Property, plant and equipment are stated at acquisition cost less accumulated depreciation and adjustments for impairment losses.

Expenditures are capitalized only when they increase the future economic benefits embodied in an item of property, plant and equipment. All other expenditures are recognized as expenses in the statement of income as incurred.

Depreciation is charged on a straight-line basis over the estimated remaining useful lives of the individual assets. Amortization commences from the time an asset is put into operation. The range of the estimated useful lives is as follows:

 

Office equipment   5 years 
Office furniture   8 1/3 years 
Signs and displays   5 years 

 
h) Intangible Assets

Intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over their remaining useful life and consist of the following:

 

Trademarks / names   14 years 
Websites   5 years 
AAMS GAD license   7 years 
AAMS Bersani license    1.5 years 
AAMS Monti license    1.5 years 
Location contracts   7 years 
Customer relationships   15 years 


We evaluate intangible assets for impairment on an annual basis, and do so during the last month of each year using balances as of the end of December and at an interim date if indications of impairment exist. Intangible asset impairment is determined by comparing the fair value of the asset to its carrying amount with an impairment being recognized only where the fair value is less than carrying value.

i) Goodwill

Goodwill is recognized for the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of tangible and identifiable intangible net assets of businesses acquired. Goodwill is reviewed at least annually for impairment. In our evaluation of goodwill impairment, we perform a qualitative assessment to determine if it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. If the qualitative assessment is not conclusive, we proceed to a two-step process to test goodwill for impairment including comparing the fair value of the reporting unit to its carrying value (including attributable goodwill). Fair value for our reporting units is determined using an income or market approach incorporating market participant considerations and management's assumptions on revenue growth rates, operating margins, discount rates and expected capital expenditures. Fair value determinations may include both internal and third-party valuations. Unless circumstances otherwise dictate, we perform our annual impairment testing in the fourth quarter.

We perform the allocation based on our knowledge of the market in which we operate, and our overall knowledge of the gaming industry.

j) Long-Lived Assets

We evaluate the carrying value of our long-lived assets for impairment by comparing the expected undiscounted future cash flows of the assets to the net book value of the assets when events or circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of a long-lived asset may not be recoverable. If the expected undiscounted future cash flows are less than the net book value of the assets, the excess of the net book value over the estimated fair value will be charged to earnings.

Fair value is based upon discounted cash flows of the assets at a rate deemed reasonable for the type of asset and prevailing market conditions, appraisals, and, if appropriate, current estimated net sales proceeds from pending offers.

k) Fair Value of Financial Instruments

We measure our financial assets and liabilities in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The carrying value of the Company's short term investments, prepaid, accounts receivables, and sundry assets, accounts payable and accrued charges, gaming account balance, and advances from shareholder approximate fair value because of the short term maturity of these financial instruments.

The Company adopted accounting guidance for financial assets and liabilities (ASC 820). The adoption did not have a material impact on our results of operations, financial position or liquidity. This standard defines fair value, provides guidance for measuring fair value and requires certain disclosures. This standard does not require any new fair value measurements, but rather applies to all other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements. This guidance does not apply to measurements related to share-based payments. This guidance discusses valuation techniques, such as the market approach (comparable market prices), the income approach (present value of future income or cash flow), and the cost approach (cost to replace the service capacity of an asset or replacement cost). The guidance utilizes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. The following is a brief description of those three levels:

 

Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted prices (unadjusted) in active market for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable, either directly or indirectly. These include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets and quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore developed using estimates and assumptions developed by us, which reflect those that a market participant would use.

 
The warrant liability issued in connection with the debentures, classified as a level 3 liability, are the only financial liability measured at fair value on a recurring basis.

l) Investments in non-consolidated entities

Investments in non-consolidated entities are accounted for using the equity method or cost basis depending upon the level of ownership and/or the Company's ability to exercise significant influence over the operating and financial policies of the investee. When the equity method is used, investments are recorded at original cost and adjusted periodically to recognize the Company's proportionate share of the investees' net income or losses after the date of investment. When net losses from an investment are accounted for under the equity method exceed its carrying amount, the investment balance is reduced to zero and additional losses are not provided for. The Company resumes accounting for the investment under the equity method if the entity subsequently reports net income and the Company's share of that net income exceeds the share of net losses not recognized during the period the equity method was suspended. Investments are written down only when there is clear evidence that a decline in value that is other than temporary has occurred.

The Company's investment in 2336414 Ontario Inc. and Banca Veneto were accounted for using the cost method of accounting. The Company monitors its investment for impairment at least annually and make appropriate reductions in the carrying value if it determines that an impairment charge is required based on qualitative and quantitative information.

m) Derivative Financial Instruments

The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market, or foreign currency risks. The Company evaluates all of its financial instruments, including stock purchase warrants, to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported as charges or credits to income.

For option-based simple derivative financial instruments, the Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to value the derivative instruments at inception and subsequent valuation dates. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is re-assessed at the end of each reporting period.

n) Leases

Leases are reviewed and classified as capital or operating at their inception in accordance with ASC Topic 840, Accounting for Leases. For leases that contain rent escalations, the Company records monthly rent expense equal to the total amount of the payments due in the reporting period over the lease term. The difference between rent expense recorded and the amount paid is credited or charged to deferred rent account and is included in accrued expenses and other current liabilities.

All lease agreements of the Company as leasees are accounted for as operating leases as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014.

o) Currency translation

Since the Company's subsidiary operates in the Italy, the subsidiary's functional currency is the Euro. In the consolidated financial statements, revenue and expense accounts are translated at the average rates during the period, and assets and liabilities are translated at year-end rates and equity accounts are translated at historical rate. Translation adjustments arising from the use of different exchange rates from period to period are included as a component of stockholders' equity. Gains and losses from foreign currency transactions are recognized in current operations.

p) Revenue Recognition

Revenues from sports-betting; casino, cash and skill games; slots, lotteries, bingo and horse race wagers represent the gross pay-ins from customers less gaming taxes and payouts to customers in addition to commissions paid to us for scratch tickets and other lottery games. Revenues are recorded when the game is closed net of payouts and AAMS taxes from wagers by customers.

Multigioco's Net Gaming Revenues (also referred to as NGR) are derived by subtracting total winnings and AAMS taxes from total wagers. Revenue from online casino games is a fixed percentage of payout based on guidelines set out by the AAMS (generally 97%) and programmed by producers of the casino software. Multigioco determines fees based on industry standards for poker and fixed revenue by law with respect to bingo at 30%.

q) Income Taxes

We use the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, "Income Taxes." Under this method, income tax expense is recognized for the amount of: (i) taxes payable or refundable for thecurrent year and (ii) deferred tax consequences of temporary differences resulting from matters that have been recognized in an entity's financial statements or tax returns. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in the results of operations in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is provided to reduce the deferred tax assets reported if based on the weight of the available positive and negative evidence, it is more likely than not some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

ASC Topic 740.10.30 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise's financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. ASC Topic 740.10.40 provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure, and transition. We have no material uncertain tax positions for any of the reporting periods presented.

As of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the earnings of the Company have yielded cumulative losses. The Company has elected to include interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions, if determined, as a component of income tax expense. To date, no penalties or interest has been accrued.

In Italy, tax years beginning 2009 forward are open and subject to examination. The Company is not currently under examination and it has not been notified of a pending examination.

r) Promotion, Marketing, and Advertising Costs

The costs of promotion, marketing, and advertising are charged to expense as incurred.

s) Earnings Per Share

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. As a result of the net loss in the year 2014, the calculation of diluted loss per common share does not include the dilutive effect to outstanding warrants.

t) Comprehensive Income (Loss)

Comprehensive income (loss) is defined as the change in equity of a business enterprise during a period from transactions and other events and circumstances from non-owner sources, including foreign currency translation adjustments and unrealized gains and losses on marketable securities.

The Company adopted FASB ASC 220-10-45, "Reporting Comprehensive Income". ASC 220-10-45 establishes standards for reporting and presentation of comprehensive income and its components in a full set of financial statements. Comprehensive income is presented in the statements of operations, and consists of net income and unrealized gains (losses) on available for sale marketable securities; foreign currency translation adjustments and changes in market value of future contracts that qualify as a hedge; and negative equity adjustments.

u) Business Combinations

We allocate the fair value of purchase consideration to the tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values. The excess of the fair value of purchase consideration over the fair values of these identifiable assets and liabilities is recorded as goodwill.

Such valuations require management to make significant estimates and assumptions, especially with respect to intangible assets. Significant estimates in valuing certain intangible assets include, but are not limited to, future expected cash flows from acquired users, acquired technology, and trade names from a market participant perspective, useful lives and discount rates. Management's estimates of fair value are based upon assumptions believed to be reasonable, but which are inherently uncertain and unpredictable and, as a result, actual results may differ from estimates. During the measurement period, which is one year from the acquisition date, we may record adjustments to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, with the corresponding offset to goodwill. Upon the conclusion of the measurement period, any subsequent adjustments are recorded to earnings.

v) Recent Accounting Pronouncements

There are no recently issued accounting standards that are expected to have a material effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

Multigioco Srl Acquisition

4. Multigioco Srl Acquisition

On August 15, 2014, the Company completed its acquisition of Multigioco in which it acquired 100% of the outstanding common shares of Multigioco, an Italian corporation. Based on the Share Purchase Agreement ("Agreement"), the Company will pay EUR 1,000,000 (approximately $1,336,600 USD using the exchange rate at the closing date) in consideration for 100% shares of Multigioco at closing. In Lieu of the cash consideration due at closing, the Company issued 2,000,000 restricted shares of Empire's common stock, which was valued at a fair market value of $1.00 per share. As stated in the Agreement, the shareholders of Multigioco have the option to give back those shares in exchange for the cash consideration no later than 90 days from the closing of this Agreement. On October 24, 2014, the Company paid EUR 490,000 (approximately $620,700 USD) to reacquire 49% (or 980,000 shares) of the shares issued to Multigioco shareholders. The cash paid for reacquiring those shares was treated as measurement period purchase price adjustment. The parties have informally agreed to extend the option indefinitely.

The acquisition was accounted for under the acquisition method of accounting. The assets and liabilities of Multigioco are included in the Consolidated Balance Sheet and the results of the Multigioco operations subsequent to the acquisition date are included in the Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Loss as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014.



The purchase price was allocated to the fair market value of tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed as follows:

Acquisition of Offline (Land-based) Gaming Assets

5. Acquisition of Offline (Land-based) Gaming Assets

(a) Rifa Srl.

On January 1, 2015 the Company completed the acquisition of Rifa Srl ("Rifa") an inactive legal entity incorporated in Italy. Rifa's only asset is a "Monti license" and 1 inactive Diritti Negozio Sportivo (Agency) Concession right. The acquisition of Rifa enables the Company to operate Agency locations. During the year ended December 31, 2014 Multigioco paid EUR 30,000 (approximately $36,300 USD) towards the purchase price of Rifa. The Company also advanced EUR 21,506 (approximately $26,000 USD) for payments of debts or a total of EUR 51,506 (approximately $62,300 USD) towards the acquisition of Rifa which was classified as deposit on acquisitions at December 31, 2014.

(b) Gaming assets from New Gioco

Also on January 1, 2015, Multigioco purchased offline gaming assets from New Gioco which included a Bersani license along with 3 Diritti Punto Sportivo (Corner) rights to operate under Multigioco and Rifa purchased 1 Agency right at Via Mario Chiri, Roma from New Gioco to operate under Rifa's Monti license. Pursuant to the agreement Rifa assumed the lease on the premises at the Mario Chiri address. The purchase price paid to New Gioco also includes equipment and assets related to each of the Corner and Agency locations but the Company did not purchase the New Gioco Srl. corporate entity, its Monti license or its liabilities.

New Gioco is an Italian gaming company which is 50% owned by Laura Tabacco an Italian citizen and 50% owned by Beniamino Gianfelici who along with his daughter, owned 100% of Multigioco prior to its acquisition by Empire.

The Company agreed to pay New Gioco EUR 650,649 (approximately $787,158 USD) which included EUR 450,000 (approximately $569,700 USD) payable in 9 cash instalments of EUR 50,000 (approximately $63,308 USD) each until paid in full and forgiveness of debt which was comprised of EUR 210,507 (approximately $256,261 USD) which was recorded as due from affiliates at December 31, 2014 less a credit of EUR 9,858 (approximately $12,000 USD) in consideration for a payment made by New Gioco towards the debt.

As of the date of this report, the Company has paid EUR 50,000 (approximately $63,308 USD) towards the cash purchase price of the assets from New Gioco and eliminated the Due from affiliates. For accounting purposes, the purchase was accounted for using the acquisition method of accounting. The operating results of this acquisition for the three months ended March 31, 2015 are included in the Corporation's consolidated results from the date of acquisition.

The total cost of the acquisition has been allocated to the assets acquired and the liabilities assumed based upon their estimated fair values at the date of the acquisition. The Company conducted an internal assessment on the fair value of the tangible and intangible assets acquired. As a result, the Company determined that the total purchase price of the New Gioco assets acquired could be allocated equally to the Corner license and rights and the Agency rights. The initial amounts of the transaction resulted in goodwill (the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of net assets acquired) of EUR 66,608 (approximately $81,079 USD). The estimated purchase price allocation for the acquisition of the offline (land-based) gaming assets is preliminary and subject to revision as valuation work is still being conducted. The following represents the preliminary purchase price allocation:

 

       Useful life
          
Property, Plant and Equipment         
Furniture and fixtures:   42,606       8 1/3 years
Lighting and electrical:   3,652        10 years

On December 9, 2014, the Company invested CDN$1,000,000 (approximately $875,459 USD) in a private placement of common shares of 2336414 Ontario Inc. ("2336414") representing 666,664 common shares or 2.3% of 2336414. 2336414 is an Ontario corporation and the parent company of Paymobile Inc. a carrier-class, PCI compliant transaction platform, delivering Visa prepaid card programs for social disbursements, corporate payroll replacement and cheque replacement. The Company is seeking to obtain a supplemental multi-currency payment processing system for our various clients and partners which may offer us unique, competitive, loyalty benefits in our markets.

The Company subscribed for 666,664 Units (CDN$1,000,000) (approximately $875,458 USD), with each Unit being comprised of one (1) common share in the capital of 2336414 and one-quarter (1/4) of one common share purchase warrant, which will require four quarter warrants to acquire one additional common share in the capital of 2336414, for CDN$2.25 within 18 months after the closing of the Offering, or such longer period of time as 2336414 may determine.

The Company paid CDN$1,000,000 (approximately $875,459 USD) in cash, and obtained a promissory note for CDN$500,000 (approximately $436,796 USD) from 2336414's subsidiary, Paymobile Inc, which bears interest at a rate of 1% per month on the outstanding balance. As of the date of this filing, the final payment of CDN$150,000 which was due on February 28, 2015 remains due. The Company and 2336414 Ontario Inc. have informally agreed to extend the due date until June 30, 2015 unless further extend by mutual consent.

Since Paymobile has not produced any meaningful income, the Company has determined that it may not be able to realize its investment in 2336414 and has therefore decided to set up a 100% impairment on the investment made as of March 31, 2015. If the investment in 2336414 is unsuccessful, the Company may lose some or all of its investment in 2336414 Ontario Inc.

On March 31, 2015 the Company held $36,115 in shares of Banca Veneto SCpA. Banca Veneto is a private mutual enterprise organized under Italian banking laws.

We carry the value of the shares of Banca Veneto SCpA and 2336414 Ontario Inc. at cost less impairment. The Company accounts for investment in non-consolidated entities using the cost method of accounting if the Company has an ownership interest below 20% and does not have the ability to exercise significant influence over an investee. The shares of Banca Veneto and 2336414 Ontario Inc. do not have an active market.

On September 1, 2014 the Company entered into a Share Purchase Agreement (SPA) to acquire Streamlogue Holdings Ltd. ("Streamlogue"), a Maltese licensed gaming company. The purpose of seeking the acquisition of Streamlogue is to expand our gaming products and services outside of the Italian operations of our subsidiary Multigioco. Under the terms of the SPA, the company agreed to pay Euro 600,000 (approximately $759,698 USD) of outstanding debts of Streamlogue plus Euro 350,000 (approximately $443,157 USD) in shares of the company payable on closing of the transaction. The Closing of the transaction is subject to full and satisfactory due diligence which includes an audit of the financial statements of Streamlogue. To date, the due diligence and audit of the financial statements have not been completed.

Streamlogue owns two operating subsidiaries incorporated in Malta which are licensed by the Lottery and Gaming Authority of Malta ("LGA"): Streamlogue Services Ltd, a Business to Business (B2B) company which provides a "Live Online Casino" platform to global online gaming operators situated in authorized countries and Streamlogue Operations Ltd, a Business to Consumer (B2C) company which provides the Live Online Casino gaming platform for direct end user patrons that can establish betting accounts directly with the company.

As of December 31, 2014 the company made advances of $655,976 and $40,953 during the three months ended March 31, 2015 towards the purchase price of Streamlogue. The deposits are credited to the purchase price of EUR 950,000 (approximately $1,202,855 USD).

If the transaction to acquire Streamlogue Holdings Ltd. is unsuccessful, the Company may lose some or all of the deposits credited towards the purpose price.

Since Streamlogue has not produced any meaningful income, the Company determined that it may not be able to realize its deposit in Streamlogue if the transaction is unsuccessful. Therefore, the Company decided to set up a 100% allowance on the advances made as of March 31, 2015.

As of March 31, 2015, the amortized discount on the Debenture was $6,386.

The Company paid commissions of $3,500 and $10,500 for the July 2014 and the December 2014 debentures respectively. The commissions related to the December 2014 debentures were amortized over the life of the debenture.

Warrants to Purchase Common Stock

The Company has determined that the warrants issued in connection with the debentures on July 9, 2014 and December 17, 2014 should be treated as a liability since it has been determined not to be indexed to the Company's own stock.

The fair value of the warrants on the date of issuance as calculated using the Black-Scholes model was $6,267 and $13,523 for the June 2014 and December 2014 warrants respectively, using the following weighted average assumptions:

 

      Common               
Warrant  Exercise  Stock        Dividend  Interest  Forfeiture
Date  Price  Price  Volatility  Term  Yield  Rate  Risk
   per/sh  per/sh               
July 9, 2014  $1.00   $0.895    460%  2 yrs   0%   0.91%   0%
                                  
Dec. 17, 2014  $1.50   $0.897    460%  2 yrs   0%   0.91%   0%


The fair value of the warrants has been recorded as a debt discount which is to be amortized as interest expense over the life of the Debentures.

A summary of warrant transactions during the three months ended March 31, 2015 is as follows:

 

      Weighted Average
   Warrant  Exercise Price
   Shares  Per Common Share

Outstanding at March 31, 2015   22,000   $1.34 
Exercisable at March 31, 2015   22,000   $1.34 

 
As of March 31, 2015, the weighted average remaining contractual life for warrants outstanding and exercisable was 1.5 years and 1.75 years for the July 9, 2014 and the December 17, 2014 warrants respectively.

The Company is incorporated in the United States of America and is subject to United States federal taxation. No provisions for income taxes have been made, as the Company had no U.S. taxable income for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and the year ended December 31, 2014.

The Company periodically evaluates whether it is more likely than not that it will generate sufficient taxable income to realize the deferred income tax asset. The ultimate realization of this asset is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income sufficient to offset the related deductions. At the present time, management cannot presently determine when the Company will be able to generate sufficient taxable income to realize the deferred tax asset; accordingly, a valuation allowance has been established to offset the asset.

The Company's Italian subsidiaries are governed by the income tax laws of Italy. The corporate tax rate in Italy is 32.32% (IRES at 27.5% plus IRAP ordinary at 4.82%) on income reported in the statutory financial statements after appropriate tax adjustments.

The reconciliation of income tax expense at the U.S. statutory rate of 35% to the Company's effective income tax as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 are:

 

   March 31,  December 31,
   2015  2014
U.S. statutory rate of 35%  $(96,871)  $(730,328)
Tax rate difference between U.S and Italy (27.5%)   (5,613)   (42,317)
Change in valuation allowance   102,484    777,736 
Income tax expense  $—     $5,091 


The Company has accumulated a net operating loss carry forward ("NOL") of approximately $7 million as of March 31, 2015. This NOL may be offset against future taxable income through the year 2035. The use of these losses to reduce future income taxes will depend on the generation of sufficient taxable income prior to the expiration of the NOL. No tax benefit has been reported in the consolidated financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2015 and the year ended December 31, 2014 because it has been fully offset by a valuation allowance.



NOL's incurred are subject to limitation due to any ownership change (as defined under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986) which resulted in a change in business direction. Unused limitations may be carried over to future years until the NOLs expire. Utilization of NOLs may also be limited in any one year by alternative minimum tax rules.

Under Italian tax law the operating loss carryforwards available for offset against future profits can be used indefinitely. Operating loss carryforwards are only available for offset against national income tax, in the limit of 80% of taxable annual income (this restriction does not apply to the operating loss incurred in the first three years of the Company's activity, which are therefore available for 100% offsetting).

The tax effects of temporary differences that give rise to the Company's net deferred tax asset as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 are as follows:

 

   March 31,  December 31,
   2015  2014
Net operating loss carryforward   2,641,407    2,563,068 
Less valuation allowance   (2,641,407)   (2,563,068)

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (Policies)

Mar. 31, 2015
Accounting Policies [Abstract]  
Basis of presentation and estimates

a) Basis of presentation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("US GAAP"). The consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All significant inter-company transactions and balances among the Company and its subsidiaries are eliminated upon consolidation.

Use of estimates

c) Use of estimates

The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("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 dates of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. These estimates and assumptions include valuing equity securities issued in share based payment arrangements, determining the fair value of our common stock, the collectability of receivables and advances and deferred taxes and related valuation allowances. Certain of our estimates, including evaluating the collectability of receivables and advances, could be affected by external conditions, including those unique to our industry, and general economic conditions. It is possible that these external factors could have an effect on our estimates that could cause actual results to differ from our estimates. We re-evaluate all of our accounting estimates at least quarterly based on these conditions and record adjustments when necessary.

Cash and equivalents

d) Cash and equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments with maturities of three months or less at the time acquired to be cash equivalents. Cash equivalents represent short-term investments consisting of investment-grade corporate and government obligations, carried at cost, which approximates market value. The Company has no cash equivalents as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014.

The Company primarily places its cash with high-credit quality financial institutions, one of which is located in the United States which is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation for up to $250,000 and another which is located in Italy and is insured by the Italian government.


Gaming accounts receivable & allowance for doubtful accounts

e) Gaming accounts receivable & allowance for doubtful accounts

The Company extends unsecured credit to its gaming client accounts in the ordinary course of business when a client applies credit to their gaming account by credit card or direct deposit either through one of our websites or at the cashier of a betting shop. The client may then place wagers or play games immediately on the credit applied.

Gaming accounts receivable represents gaming losses and deposits (credits) made by customers to their gaming accounts not yet credited to our bank accounts and subject to normal trade collection terms without discounts. The Company periodically evaluates the collectability of its gaming accounts receivable and considers the need to record or adjust an allowance for doubtful accounts based upon historical collection experience and specific customer information. Actual amounts could vary from the recorded estimates. The Company has determined that no allowance for doubtful accounts is needed for the gaming accounts receivable balances as of March 31, 2015. The Company does not require collateral to support customer receivables.


Gaming balances

f) Gaming account balances

Gaming account balances represent customer gaming account balances that are held as credits (i.e. deposits on account, winnings, etc.) and have not as of yet been withdrawn by the customers or that customers want to keep on account for future betting. Customers can request payment from the Company at any time and the payment to customers can be made through bank wire, credit card, or actual cash disbursement from one of our locations. Gaming account credit balances are non-interest bearing.

Property, plant and equipment

g) Property, plant and equipment

Property, plant and equipment are stated at acquisition cost less accumulated depreciation and adjustments for impairment losses.

Expenditures are capitalized only when they increase the future economic benefits embodied in an item of property, plant and equipment. All other expenditures are recognized as expenses in the statement of income as incurred.

Depreciation is charged on a straight-line basis over the estimated remaining useful lives of the individual assets. Amortization commences from the time an asset is put into operation. The range of the estimated useful lives is as follows:

 

Office equipment   5 years 
Office furniture   8 1/3 years 
Signs and displays   5 years 


Intangible Assets

h) Intangible Assets

Intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over their remaining useful life and consist of the following:

 

Trademarks / names   14 years 
Websites   5 years 
AAMS GAD license   7 years 
AAMS Bersani license    1.5 years 
AAMS Monti license    1.5 years 
Location contracts   7 years 
Customer relationships   15 years 

 

We evaluate intangible assets for impairment on an annual basis, and do so during the last month of each year using balances as of the end of December and at an interim date if indications of impairment exist. Intangible asset impairment is determined by comparing the fair value of the asset to its carrying amount with an impairment being recognized only where the fair value is less than carrying value.

Goodwill

i) Goodwill

Goodwill is recognized for the excess of the purchase price over the fair value of tangible and identifiable intangible net assets of businesses acquired. Goodwill is reviewed at least annually for impairment. In our evaluation of goodwill impairment, we perform a qualitative assessment to determine if it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount. If the qualitative assessment is not conclusive, we proceed to a two-step process to test goodwill for impairment including comparing the fair value of the reporting unit to its carrying value (including attributable goodwill). Fair value for our reporting units is determined using an income or market approach incorporating market participant considerations and management's assumptions on revenue growth rates, operating margins, discount rates and expected capital expenditures. Fair value determinations may include both internal and third-party valuations. Unless circumstances otherwise dictate, we perform our annual impairment testing in the fourth quarter.


We perform the allocation based on our knowledge of the market in which we operate, and our overall knowledge of the gaming industry.



Long-Lived Assets

j) Long-Lived Assets

We evaluate the carrying value of our long-lived assets for impairment by comparing the expected undiscounted future cash flows of the assets to the net book value of the assets when events or circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of a long-lived asset may not be recoverable. If the expected undiscounted future cash flows are less than the net book value of the assets, the excess of the net book value over the estimated fair value will be charged to earnings.


Fair value is based upon discounted cash flows of the assets at a rate deemed reasonable for the type of asset and prevailing market conditions, appraisals, and, if appropriate, current estimated net sales proceeds from pending offers.



Fair Value of Financial Instruments

k) Fair Value of Financial Instruments

We measure our financial assets and liabilities in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The carrying value of the Company's short term investments, prepaid, accounts receivables, and sundry assets, accounts payable and accrued charges, gaming account balance, and advances from shareholder approximate fair value because of the short term maturity of these financial instruments.

The Company adopted accounting guidance for financial assets and liabilities (ASC 820). The adoption did not have a material impact on our results of operations, financial position or liquidity. This standard defines fair value, provides guidance for measuring fair value and requires certain disclosures.


This standard does not require any new fair value measurements, but rather applies to all other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements. This guidance does not apply to measurements related to share-based payments. This guidance discusses valuation techniques, such as the market approach (comparable market prices), the income approach (present value of future income or cash flow), and the cost approach (cost to replace the service capacity of an asset or replacement cost). The guidance utilizes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three broad levels. The following is a brief description of those three levels:

 

Level 1: Observable inputs such as quoted prices (unadjusted) in active market for identical assets or liabilities.
Level 2: Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable, either directly or indirectly. These include quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets and quoted prices for identical or similar assets or liabilities in markets that are not active.
Level 3: Unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore developed using estimates and assumptions developed by us, which reflect those that a market participant would use.


The warrant liability issued in connection with the debentures, classified as a level 3 liability, are the only financial liability measured at fair value on a recurring basis.



Investments in non-consolidated entities

l) Investments in non-consolidated entities

Investments in non-consolidated entities are accounted for using the equity method or cost basis depending upon the level of ownership and/or the Company's ability to exercise significant influence over the operating and financial policies of the investee. When the equity method is used, investments are recorded at original cost and adjusted periodically to recognize the Company's proportionate share of the investees' net income or losses after the date of investment. When net losses from an investment are accounted for under the equity method exceed its carrying amount, the investment balance is reduced to zero and additional losses are not provided for. The Company resumes accounting for the investment under the equity method if the entity subsequently reports net income and the Company's share of that net income exceeds the share of net losses not recognized during the period the equity method was suspended. Investments are written down only when there is clear evidence that a decline in value that is other than temporary has occurred.

The Company's investment in 2336414 Ontario Inc. and Banca Veneto were accounted for using the cost method of accounting. The Company monitors its investment for impairment at least annually and make appropriate reductions in the carrying value if it determines that an impairment charge is required based on qualitative and quantitative information.



Derivative Financial Instruments

m) Derivative Financial Instruments

The Company does not use derivative instruments to hedge exposures to cash flow, market, or foreign currency risks. The Company evaluates all of its financial instruments, including stock purchase warrants, to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported as charges or credits to income.

For option-based simple derivative financial instruments, the Company uses the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to value the derivative instruments at inception and subsequent valuation dates. The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is re-assessed at the end of each reporting period.



Leasing

n) Leases

Leases are reviewed and classified as capital or operating at their inception in accordance with ASC Topic 840, Accounting for Leases. For leases that contain rent escalations, the Company records monthly rent expense equal to the total amount of the payments due in the reporting period over the lease term. The difference between rent expense recorded and the amount paid is credited or charged to deferred rent account and is included in accrued expenses and other current liabilities.

All lease agreements of the Company as leasees are accounted for as operating leases as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014..



Currency translation

o) Currency translation

Since the Company's subsidiary operates in the Italy, the subsidiary's functional currency is the Euro. In the consolidated financial statements, revenue and expense accounts are translated at the average rates during the period, and assets and liabilities are translated at year-end rates and equity accounts are translated at historical rate. Translation adjustments arising from the use of different exchange rates from period to period are included as a component of stockholders' equity. Gains and losses from foreign currency transactions are recognized in current operations.



Revenue Recognition

p) Revenue Recognition

Revenues from sports-betting; casino, cash and skill games; slots, lotteries, bingo and horse race wagers represent the gross pay-ins from customers less gaming taxes and payouts to customers in addition to commissions paid to us for scratch tickets and other lottery games. Revenues are recorded when the game is closed net of payouts and AAMS taxes from wagers by customers.


Multigioco's Net Gaming Revenues (also referred to as NGR) are derived by subtracting total winnings and AAMS taxes from total wagers. Revenue from online casino games is a fixed percentage of payout based on guidelines set out by the AAMS (generally 97%) and programmed by producers of the casino software. Multigioco determines fees based on industry standards for poker and fixed revenue by law with respect to bingo at 30%.



Income Taxes

q) Income Taxes

We use the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, "Income Taxes." Under this method, income tax expense is recognized for the amount of: (i) taxes payable or refundable for the current year and (ii) deferred tax consequences of temporary differences resulting from matters that have been recognized in an entity's financial statements or tax returns. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in the results of operations in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is provided to reduce the deferred tax assets reported if based on the weight of the available positive and negative evidence, it is more likely than not some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

ASC Topic 740.10.30 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise's financial statements and prescribes a recognition threshold and measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. ASC Topic 740.10.40 provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure, and transition. We have no material uncertain tax positions for any of the reporting periods presented.

As of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the earnings of the Company have yielded cumulative losses. The Company has elected to include interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions, if determined, as a component of income tax expense. To date, no penalties or interest has been accrued.

In Italy, tax years beginning 2009 forward are open and subject to examination. The Company is not currently under examination and it has not been notified of a pending examination.



Promotion, Marketing, and Advertising Costs

r) Promotion, Marketing, and Advertising Costs

The costs of promotion, marketing, and advertising are charged to expense as incurred.



Earnings Per Share

s) Earnings Per Share

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. As a result of the net loss in the year 2014, the calculation of diluted loss per common share does not include the dilutive effect to outstanding warrants.



Comprehensive Income (Loss)

t) Comprehensive Income (Loss)

Comprehensive income (loss) is defined as the change in equity of a business enterprise during a period from transactions and other events and circumstances from non-owner sources, including foreign currency translation adjustments and unrealized gains and losses on marketable securities.

The Company adopted FASB ASC 220-10-45, "Reporting Comprehensive Income". ASC 220-10-45 establishes standards for reporting and presentation of comprehensive income and its components in a full set of financial statements. Comprehensive income is presented in the statements of operations, and consists of net income and unrealized gains (losses) on available for sale marketable securities; foreign currency translation adjustments and changes in market value of future contracts that qualify as a hedge; and negative equity adjustments.



Business combinations

u) Business Combinations

We allocate the fair value of purchase consideration to the tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed based on their estimated fair values. The excess of the fair value of purchase consideration over the fair values of these identifiable assets and liabilities is recorded as goodwill. Such valuations require management to make significant estimates and assumptions, especially with respect to intangible assets. Significant estimates in valuing certain intangible assets include, but are not limited to, future expected cash flows from acquired users, acquired technology, and trade names from a market participant perspective, useful lives and discount rates. Management's estimates of fair value are based upon assumptions believed to be reasonable, but which are inherently uncertain and unpredictable and, as a result, actual results may differ from estimates. During the measurement period, which is one year from the acquisition date, we may record adjustments to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed, with the corresponding offset to goodwill. Upon the conclusion of the measurement period, any subsequent adjustments are recorded to earnings.



Recent Accounting Pronouncements

v) Recent Accounting Pronouncements

There are no recently issued accounting standards that are expected to have a material effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.
