NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
June 30, 2018
NOTE 1 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
This summary of significant accounting policies of Arrestage International, Inc. (the “Company”) is presented to assist in understanding the Company’s financial statements. The financial statements and footnotes are representations of the Company’s management, who is responsible for their integrity and objectivity. These accounting policies conform to generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial statements.
Organization and Description of the Business
The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on June 15, 2011 and is in the Nutraceutical business and holds formulas on skin care products as well as brand formulas, and other intellectual property.
Use of Estimates by Management
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents includes cash in banks and highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less that are readily convertible into cash and are not subject to significant risk from fluctuations in interest rates. As a result, the carrying amount of cash and cash equivalents approximates fair value.
Concentrations of Credit Risk
The Company places its cash and cash equivalents with major financial institutions. At June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 the Company did not have any cash balances on deposit with banks which exceeded the balance insured by the FDIC, and does not believe that it is subject to any unusual financial risk beyond the normal risk associated with commercial banking relationships.
Goodwill and Intangible Assets—Intangible assets with finite useful lives are amortized while intangible assets with indefinite useful lives are not amortized. Amortizable intangible assets are reviewed for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable. Indefinite-lived intangible assets are tested annually for impairment and when events or changes in circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable. The appropriateness of the indefinite-life classification of non-amortizable intangible assets is also reviewed as part of the annual testing or when circumstances warrant a change to a finite life. The Company performs its annual impairment testing as of December 31 each year, which is the last day of the Company’s fiscal year.
Intangible assets with indefinite useful lives (The Trademark License) are tested for impairment at the individual asset level by comparing the fair value of the indefinite-lived intangible asset to its carrying amount. If the carrying amount of an indefinite-lived intangible asset exceeds its fair value, an impairment charge is recognized to reduce the carrying amount to fair value. Fair values of indefinite-lived intangible assets are estimated using discounted cash flow (“DCF”) models.
In using a DCF method of establishing a fair value, management must make certain assumptions as to the likelihood of having cash flow from operations in the future based on past performance and prospects of sales in the future. The Company has no history of sales and no orders pending. Therefore, it is not possible to determine an appropriate level of cash receipts from operations into the future. Based on this assumption, during 2014 management determined that the fair value of the Trademark License under Generally Accepted Accounting Principles was zero. Accordingly, the Company has chosen to write the carrying value of the Trademark license to zero as of December 31, 2014.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments. The Company’s financial instruments include cash, accounts receivable, employee advances, due from related parties, prepaid expenses, development costs, deposits, accounts payable, credit cards payable, accrued expenses, and due to related parties. The estimated fair value of these instruments approximates its carrying amount due to the short maturity of these instruments. The carrying value of short and long-term debts approximates fair value because those financial instruments bear interest at rates that approximate current market rates for loans with similar maturities and credit quality.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
The Company does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective accounting pronouncements, if adopted, would have a material effect on the accompanying financial statements.
Ricks and Uncertainties
The Company is subject to substantial business risks and uncertainties inherent in starting a new business. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to complete a business combination.
Basis of Presentation-Going Concern
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America, which contemplates continuation of the Company as a going concern. However, as reflected in the accompanying financial statements, the Company has no operations, a net loss of ($65,816) for the six months ended June 30, 2018 as compared to ($14,828) for the six months ended June 30, 2017, an accumulated deficit of ($294,663) as of June 30, 2018 and ($228,847) as of December 31, 2017 and a working capital deficiency of ($142,212) and ($76,396) at June 30, 2018 and December 31, 2017 respectively. This raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company’s ability to raise additional capital and implement its business plan. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.
These financial statements are prepared on a going concern basis because the Directors, officers and significant shareholders have undertaken to provide continuing financial support so that the Company is able to pay its debts as and when they fall due. In addition, Management’s plans to ensure the Company continues as a going concern include the pay-down of outstanding debt of the Company and funding of future operations using proceeds from the revenues expected to be generated from the sale of products and services within acquired companies.
While the Company looks to acquire targeted acquisitions, adverse changes in market conditions or limits on the Company’s ability to obtain financing could limit the Company’s acquisition of such targets and the production, marketing and sale of products and services of the targeted acquisitions. The impact of such eventualities could influence future operations of the Company.
The Company records deferred taxes in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) ASC 740, “Accounting for Income Taxes.” The statement requires recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for temporary differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and the amounts at which they are carried in the financial statements, the effect of net operating losses, based upon the enacted tax rates in effect for the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. A valuation allowance is established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.
Deferred income taxes arise from temporary timing differences in the recognition of income and expenses for financial reporting and tax purposes. The Company’s deferred tax assets consist entirely of the benefit from net operating loss (NOL) carry forwards. The net operating loss carry is severely restricted as per the Internal Revenue code if there is a change in ownership. The Company’s deferred tax assets are offset by a valuation allowance due to the uncertainty of the realization of the net operating loss carry forwards. Net operating loss carry forwards may be further limited by other provisions of the tax laws.
Earnings per Share
Basic net income (loss) per share attributable to common stockholders is calculated by dividing the net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding. There were no options or warrants outstanding at June 30, 2018 nor December 31, 2017. Diluted earnings per share is not shown for the periods in which the Company incurs a loss because it would be anti-dilutive.
Pursuant to accounting guidance related to accounting for equity-based compensation, the Company is required to recognize all share-based payments to non-employees and employees in the financial statements based on fair values on the grant date. The Company has accounted for issuance of shares, options, and warrants in accordance with the guidance, which requires the recognition of expense, based on grant-date fair values, over the service period.
Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to current classifications.
The Company has selected December 31 as its fiscal year end.
The Company has paid no dividends.
No advertising expense has been incurred.
The Company consists of one reportable business segment.
The Company has not entered into any leases.
NOTE 2 – INCOME TAXES
At June 30, 2018 the Company has approximately $535,597 of operating loss carryforwards for federal income taxes that may be applied against future taxable income. There is no provision for income taxes because the Company has historically incurred operating losses and maintains a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (the “Act”) was enacted on December 22, 2017. The Act reduces the US federal corporate tax rate from 34% to 21%. The most significant impact of the legislation for the Company was a $49,000 reduction of the value of net deferred tax assets (which represent future tax benefits) as a result of lowering the U.S. corporate income tax rate from statutory rate of 34% to 21%.
Deferred income taxes arise from temporary timing differences in the recognition of income and expenses for financial reporting and tax purposes. The Company’s deferred tax assets consist entirely of the benefit from net operating loss (NOL) carry forwards. The net operating loss carry is severely restricted as per the Internal Revenue code if there is a change in ownership. The Company’s deferred tax assets are offset by a valuation allowance due to the uncertainty of the realization of the net operating loss carry forwards. Net operating loss carry forwards may be further limited by other provisions of the tax laws. With few exceptions, our income tax returns are no longer subject to Federal tax examinations by tax authorities for years before December 31, 2011.
The Company is subject to federal and state income tax. No provision for tax has been made as of June 30, 2018 or December 31, 2017 as the Company has incurred operating losses since inception. The following table reconciles the Company’s statutory tax rate to its effective tax rate as a percentage of income before income taxes under the Act:
The components of the Company’s deferred income tax assets are set forth below:
|Year Ending||Estimated NOL Carry-forward||NOL Expires||Estimated Tax Benefit from NOL||Valuation Allowance||Change in Valuation Allowance||Net Tax Benefit|
|June 30, 2018||$||65,816||$||13,821||$||13,821||$||13,821||$||–|

Item 2. MANAGEMENTS’ DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
Arrestage International, Inc. (“AII”) is a Nevada Company within the nutraceutical and medical device rental space that plans to develop an international licensing program whereby we will provide turnkey assistance with operations and support for distributors in the Skin Care and Anti-Aging arena, using our brand, custom formulas, trademark, Internet presence and proprietary marketing protocols. In addition to this, we plan to continue to develop these aspects of the business and potentially acquire complementary products and services. Arrestage International intends to create a significant brand in the aesthetic skin care marketplace. The officers and directors of AII all have created, or participated in the marketing and development of branded products in this space. AII plans to generate a licensing fee of 5-8% (or a higher rate the market may bear) of all revenues generated by future licensees.
Arrestage international has a total of eight employees, two of which are full time. As the company’s operations grow, it may add additional full-time employees within the next six months.
AII will license full use of all intellectual property and formulas of Arrestage Laboratories Corporation (“Arrestage Labs”), in all geographical regions and channels of distribution. Arrestage Labs was the company that formulated the products Arrestage International now licenses. Arrestage Labs is not a subsidiary, but rather an affiliated company as the principal, Kimberly Shapiro, is a current board member of Arrestage International. Also, Anne Shapiro is the wife of Roy Shapiro (a current board member of Arrestage). AII plans to set itself apart from its competitors by providing clinically based sales materials that attract a more sophisticated consumer which may enable the licensee to increase their sales revenues with higher margins. Licensees will have access to the luminary panel clinical and marketing training protocols and collateral materials. Arrestage International plans to address an ever-increasing world demand for western culturally influenced aesthetic skin topical products, in addition to the increasing demand in US domestic and other western markets. AII seeks to license distribution organizations, in the US and Internationally, to market its proprietary brand of aesthetic dermal formulations and additional products that it may potentially acquire.
Acquisition of a Licensing Agreement
Effective June 22, 2011 Arrestage entered into an agreement to acquire an exclusive licensing agreement from Ann Shapiro. Mrs. Ann Shapiro is the wife of one of the BOD members Dr. Roy Shapiro, so he had direct insight on this product line. This transaction was completed as a related party transaction with Arrestage. As part of the license agreement Arrestage agreed to pay $50,000 in three installments of unspecified amounts and on unspecified dates in exchange for consideration received. The license agreement expires in 2025.
“GRANT OF LICENSE. ALS (Ann Shapiro) owns Registered Trademark of Arrestage and cosmetic formulas (“ARRESTAGE MARK & FORMULAS”). In accordance with this Agreement, ALS grants All (Arrestage International, Inc.) an exclusive license to sell the ARRESTAGE MARK & FORMULAS. ALS retains title and ownership of the ARRESTAGE MARK & FORMULAS.”
All rights other than those specifically granted herein to Licensee are reserved to Licensor, including, without limitation, Licensors right to continue to use the Licensed Property in any form, manner, and medium.
During the next twelve months, Arrestage will expand its growth quickly. During the first two to three months, Arrestage will continue to utilize its intellectual property gained from its exclusive licensing and significant research and development for its board members luminary panel affiliation to best determine what products to have manufactured, when to release such products, and what geographical markets to re-launch such products.
Month three through eight will be used to launch products within those specific markets and to expand to other markets both foreign and domestic. During the same period, Arrestage will advance existing marketing efforts to revamp its market exposure. We will also, continue to attend industry seminars and speaking engagements and leverage our board of director’s cast industry experience by advanced industry networking.
During months eight through twelve, Arrestage will work to close the business synergies it has been working on currently. The target companies it has been performing due diligence, may lead to partnerships or asset acquisitions. Due to Arrestage’s advanced work prior to this registration filing, the company anticipates such corporate actions time frame would be shortened to fit within the twelve-month time frame.
Funding during the next twelve months will be primarily from serviceable debt financing and if effective, capital market financing.
Company will be reliant on such debt financing, access to capital markets, or future revenues, since the company currently has no revenue.
The initial products have gone through clinical and behavioral testing and several reformulations to achieve the high acceptance status that they now hold. Due to the high margins, the major aesthetic device makers are attempting to enter this market as distributors. This may be a beneficial circumstance as it may enhance the valuation of AII and widen future exit possibilities.
Planned Medical Device Rental Division
The Company plans to establish a medical device rental program that purchases or secures medical devices such as MRI systems and various other diagnostic equipment. Our target market will be physician groups, clinics, rural hospitals, and insurance companies. Arrestage intends to obtain residual income from such rentals and would maintain a fully secured UCC-1 position on each piece of equipment. To grow this division, Arrestage plans to aggressively market such services in this coming year to help meet the expanding demand of medical systems due to the current healthcare trends. The United States market, the largest in the world, has reached a value of $133 billion in 2016. To date the group that the Company is planning to include in its business has accumulated a strong market presence within this lucrative sector of secured structured medical lending.
Results of Operations
Six Months Ended June 30, 2018, compared to the Six Months Ended June 30, 2017
The following table sets forth the results of our current operations for the periods indicated as a percentage of total expenses:
|$||% of Total Expenses||$||% of Total Expenses|
|Cost of Goods Sold||$||–||0||%||$||–||0||%|
Total operating expenses increased approximately 441% to approximately $62,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2018, from approximately $14,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2017. The increase in our operating expenses between the periods was mostly attributable to an increase in legal, accounting and other professional fees related the filing of an S-1 Registration.
Interest Expense increased by $3,134 to $3,947 for the six months ended June 30, 2018 from $812 for the six months ended June 30, 2017 as a result of increased borrowing to fund operations.
Net loss from continuing operations for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $65,816, compared to net loss from continuing operations of $14,828 for the six months ended June 30, 2017. Our net loss from continuing operations for the Six months ended June 30, 2018 was mostly attributable to our increased professional fees associated with the S-1 Registration.
We believe that our business is characterized by minor seasonality. However, sales to any particular customer or of any particular product can vary substantially from one quarter to the next based on such factors as industry trends, timing of promotional discounts, domestic and international economic conditions and acquisition related activities. The Industry has historically recorded higher branded product sales volume during the second fiscal quarter (January through March) due to increased interest in health-related products among consumers following the holiday season.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
Our principal demands for liquidity are to enable the Company to continue to fund the expenses associated with completing the S-1 Registration to become a trading and reporting Company and general corporate purposes. We have no history of sales, and have incurred negative operating cash flows since inception to date in 2018. To date we have borrowed approximately $129,000 from a shareholder and Director in the form of a multiple advance 8% Demand Note.
We do not plan on our operating activities being able to fund operations through 2018. In December 2017, the Company filed an S-1 Registration with the SEC with the plan of raising equity financing to raise capital to execute on its business plan.
There can be no assurance that required future financing can be successfully completed on a timely basis, or on terms acceptable to us. Any future issuance of equity securities could cause dilution to our shareholders. Any incurrence of indebtedness would increase our debt service obligations and would cause us to be subject to restrictive operating and financial covenants.
We had negative net working capital of ($142,212) as of June 30, 2018 as compared to positive working capital of $9,562 as of June 30, 2017.

Cyber Security, Data Protection and Privacy
Arrestage has assessed its level of controls and procedures for cybersecurity risk. Due to the current lack of exposure within its current business operations, Arrestage has been informed the effect of any cyber-attack would be minimum. Arrestage has not had any such occurrence to date. The Company is informed of cyber-risk factors and will create disclosure controls and procedures when they become relevant to its business model.
Based on new Regulatory authority of the European Unions’ General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and tightening US laws, Arrestage International must abide by and follow directives provided by such regulation.
For Privacy Protection Compliance in the US, California’s SB1386 bill of 2003, implemented in 2015 as (California Electronic Communication Privacy Act (S.B. 178) a pioneered mandatory data-breach notification across the United States, spurring a decade of unprecedented corporate spending on information security. Europe has expanded this idea into its landmark General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). As such, Arrestage International, Inc., now needs to update its US privacy incident-response playbook in many areas outlined in the GDPR’s May 2018 compliance directives.
Data Protection in the US deals with the security of the electronic transmission of personal data. While the US does not have any centralized, formal legislation at the federal level regarding this issue, it does mandate a form of compliance through various organizations. Again, California has taken the lead as far as State mandates (California A.B 1541, 2015), but the EU’s GDPR creates a centralized regulatory framework that multi-nationals must now follow (as of May 25, 2018). While Arrestage International, Inc. has acted to abide by data privacy and protection mandates, any misinterpretation or non-adherence would case regulatory scrutiny, fees/fines, and other potential issues. Any such regulatory mandate would affect business operations and percentage of profitability.
