|NOTE 1 - NATURE OF OPERATIONS, BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING AND REPORTING POLICIES
Nature of Operations:
Propanc Health Group Corporation, formerly Propanc PTY LTD, (referred to herein as the "Company," "we," "us" or "our") is a development stage enterprise. Propanc PTY LTD was incorporated in Melbourne, Victoria Australia on October 15, 2007, and is based in Richmond, Victoria Australia. Since inception, substantially all of the efforts of the Company have been the development of new cancer treatments targeting high risk patients who need a follow-up, non-toxic, long-term therapy which prevents the cancer from returning and spreading. The Company is in the development stage and has begun raising capital, financial planning, establishing sources of supply, and acquiring property and equipment. The Company anticipates establishing global markets for its technologies.
On November 23, 2010, Propanc Health Group Corporation was incorporated in the state of Delaware. In January 2011, Propanc Health Group Corporation acquired all of the outstanding shares of Propanc PTY LTD on a one-for-one basis making it a wholly-owned subsidiary. The results of operations through June 30, 2010 are that of the subsidiary, Propanc PTY LTD. All share and per share data in the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements has been retroactively adjusted for this recapitalization giving effect to a common share par value of $0.001.
Basis of Presentation:
The Company is presented as in the development stage from October 15, 2007 (Inception) through December 31, 2013.
The interim unaudited consolidated financial statements included herein have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, and pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission. In the opinion of the Companys management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments and reclassifications and non-recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly our results of operations and cash flows for the three and six months ended December 31, 2013 and our financial position as of December 31, 2013 have been made. The results of operations for such interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the operating results to be expected for the full year.
Certain information and disclosures normally included in the notes to the annual audited consolidated financial statements have been condensed or omitted from these interim unaudited consolidated financial statements. Accordingly, these interim unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013. The June 30, 2013 balance sheet is derived from those statements.
Use of Estimates:
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 these estimates. Significant estimates in the accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements include the estimates of depreciable lives and valuation of property and equipment and intangible assets, allowance for uncollectable receivables, valuation of derivatives, valuation of beneficial conversion features in convertible debt, valuation of equity based instruments issued for other than cash, the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets and foreign currency translation due to certain average exchange rates applied in lieu of spot rates on translation dates.
Principals of Consolidation:
The unaudited consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Propanc Health Group Corporation and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Propanc PTY LTD. All significant inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
Foreign Currency Translation and Comprehensive Income (Loss):
The Companys functional currency is the Australian dollar (AUD). For financial reporting purposes, the Australian dollar has been translated into United States dollars ($) and/or USD as the reporting currency. Assets and liabilities are translated at the exchange rate in effect at the balance sheet date. Revenues and expenses are translated at the average rate of exchange prevailing during the reporting period. Equity transactions are translated at each historical transaction date spot rate. Translation adjustments arising from the use of different exchange rates from period to period are included as a component of stockholders equity (deficit) as accumulated other comprehensive income (loss). Gains and losses resulting from foreign currency transactions are included in the statement of operations and comprehensive loss as other income (expense). There has been no significant fluctuations in the exchange rate for the conversion of Australian dollars to USD after the balance sheet date.
Comprehensive loss from inception, through December 31, 2013, included foreign currency translation gains (losses).
Changes in Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income (Loss) by Component during the six months ended December 31, 2013 was as follows:
ASC Topic 815, Derivatives and Hedging (ASC Topic 815), establishes accounting and reporting standards for derivative instruments and for hedging activities by requiring that all derivatives be recognized in the balance sheet and measured at fair value. Gains or losses resulting from changes in the fair value of derivatives are recognized in earnings or recorded in other comprehensive income (loss) depending on the purpose of the derivatives and whether they qualify and have been designated for hedge accounting treatment. The Company does not have any derivative instruments for which it has applied hedge accounting treatment.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measurements:
We measure our financial assets and liabilities in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles. For certain of our financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, accounts and other receivables, accounts payable and accrued and other liabilities, the carrying amounts approximate fair value due to their short maturities. Amounts recorded for loans payable also approximate fair value because current interest rates available to us for debt with similar terms and maturities are substantially the same.
We adopted accounting guidance for fair value measurements of financial assets and liabilities. The adoption did not have a material impact on our consolidated 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 markets 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.
Cash and Cash Equivalents:
Cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand and at banks, short-term deposits with an original maturity of three months or less held at call with financial institutions, and bank overdrafts. Bank overdrafts are shown within borrowings in current liabilities on the balance sheets. There were no overdrafts or cash equivalents as of December 31, 2013.
Australian Goods and Services Tax (GST):
Revenues, expenses and balance sheet items are recognized net of the amount of GST except payable and receivable balances which are shown inclusive of GST. The GST incurred is payable on revenues to, and recoverable on purchases from, the Australian Taxation Office.
Cash flows are presented in the statements of cash flow on a gross basis, except for the GST component of investing and financing activities, which are disclosed as operating cash flows.
As of December 31, 2013, the Company was owed $4,520 from the Australian Taxation Office.
Research and Development Tax Credits:
The Company may apply for research and development tax concessions with the Australian Taxation Office on an annual basis. Although the amount is possible to estimate at year end, the Australian Taxation Office may reject or materially alter the claim amount. Accordingly, the Company does not recognize the benefit of the claim amount until cash receipt since collectability is not certain until such time. The tax concession is a refundable credit. If the Company has net income then the Company can receive the credit which reduces its income tax liability. If the Company has net losses then the Company may still receive a cash payment for the credit, however, the Company's net operating loss carryforwards are reduced by the gross equivalent loss that would produce the credit amount when the income tax rate is applied to that gross amount. The concession is recognized as an income tax benefit, in operations, upon receipt.
Since inception, the Company has applied for and received from the Australian Taxation Office a research and development tax credit in the cumulative amount of $367,421 which is reflected as an income tax benefit in the accompanying unaudited consolidated statement of operations and comprehensive loss.
Basic and Diluted Net Loss Per Common Share:
Basic net loss per share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per common share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period and, if dilutive, potential common shares outstanding during the period. Potentially dilutive securities consist of the incremental common shares issuable upon exercise of common stock equivalents such as stock options and convertible debt instruments. Potentially dilutive securities are excluded from the computation if their effect is anti-dilutive. As a result, the basic and diluted per share amounts for all periods presented are identical. As of December 31, 2013, there were 3,000,000 warrants outstanding and convertible notes payable that are convertible into 2,001,146 common shares which are considered dilutive securities which were excluded from the computation.
Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements:
Financial Accounting Standards Board, Accounting Standard Updates which are not effective until after December 31, 2013 are not expected to have a significant effect on the Companys unaudited consolidated financial position or results of operations.
