XsunX, Inc. is developing Power Glass(TM) - an innovative solar technology that allows glass windows to produce electricity from the power of the sun. This process for producing electricity is known as Photovoltaics. Photovoltaic ("PV") is the science of capturing and converting solar energy into electricity.
Using patented solar cell design and manufacturing processes, the Company is focused on the development of very thin semi-transparent coatings on thin-film flexible plastics that create large area monolithic solar cell structures that you can see through. This semi-transparency makes Power Glass(TM) glazing desirable for placing over glass, plastics, and other see-through structures.
The Company's strategy is to complete the development and commercialization of its Power Glass(TM) process and enter into licensing
agreements with channel partners who will manufacture and distribute products made with the XsunX solar electric glass technology. In this manner, it is anticipated that glass manufactures will incorporate the Power Glass(TM) technology into their manufacturing process as an "original equipment manufacturer" (OEM) and sell the finished product to their consumers.
For the year ended September 30, 2004, the Company had and continues to focus on the development and refinement commercially appealing solar cell designs, proprietary manufacturing processes and facilities design that could be provided to our future licensees as turn-key solutions for the mass production of Power Glass(TM) films. A large part of the Company's investment capital was used for product development. However, this may begin to shift towards marketing, sales, and business development in this new fiscal year ending September 30, 2005.
The Company intends to continue to make investments in the commercial development of its patents and evolving technologies through the course of the next year. To finance these development efforts we are currently engaged in on going capital formation efforts to fund the Company's projected deficits for development costs in the current year.
Management believes the summary data and audit presented herein is a fair presentation of the Company's results of operations for the periods presented. Due to the Company's change in primary business focus and new business opportunities these historical results may not necessarily be indicative of results to be expected for any future period. As such, future results of the Company may differ significantly from previous periods.
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE FISCAL YEAR ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2004, COMPARED TO FISCAL YEAR ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2003
The Company incurred expenses totaling $1,528,193 in 2004 compared to $145,890 in 2003. The increase of $1,382,303 resulted from an increase of $482,303 in normal and customary operational expenses and $900,000 in non-reoccurring one time expenses as follows; research and product development expenses increased by $129,493 as compared to $0 expenses incurred for the same period in 2003. Technical consulting expenses increase by $194,700 during the twelve months ended September 30, 2004 to $319,900 from $125,200. This included $300,000 in non-cash expenses associated with the grant of in-the-money warrants as consideration for technical and scientific consulting services for which we may make similar arrangements for in future periods (see "Item 12. Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions"). And, there was a one-time expense of $900,000 associated with the grant of in-the-money warrants as consideration for a technology sharing and license agreement granting a royalty free license to the Company (see "Item 12. Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions"). General and administrative expenses increased by $138,734 in the twelve months ended September 30, 2004 to $178,800 from $20,690 in 2003. The increase of $158,110 in general and administrative expenses was primarily the result of an increase to operational expenses associated with the development of the Company's business. The Company had no revenues in 2002 or 2003.
For the twelve months ended September 30, 2004, the Company's consolidated net loss was $(1,509,068) as compared to a consolidated net loss of $(145,868) for the same period ended September 30, 2003. $900,000 of this consolidated net loss was attributable to a one-time expense associated with the
grant of in-the-money warrants as consideration for a technology sharing and license agreement granting a royalty free license to the Company (see "Item 12. Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions"). The net loss per share was less than $(0.01) for the twelve month period ended September 30, 2004.
Due to the Company's change in primary business focus and new business opportunities these historical results may not necessarily be indicative of results to be expected for any future period. As such, future results of the Company may differ significantly from previous periods. Since inception in 1997 the Company has accumulated deficits totaling ($4,328,445) to September 30, 2004.
LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
Working capital (deficit) at September 30, 2004 was $(38,819) as compared to $2,346 at September 30, 2003. There were no cash flows provided by operations during the twelve months ended September 30, 2004.
Cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2004 were $57,344, an increase of $54,998 from September 30, 2003. During the year ended, September 30, 2004, the Company used $1,436,630 net cash in operating activities as compared to using $27,372 net cash for the year ended, September 30, 2003. This increase of net cash used in operations of $1,409,258 was primarily a result of an increase in operational costs associated with the development of the Company's business plan and a one-time expense of $900,000 associated with the grant of in-the-money warrants as consideration for a technology sharing and license agreement granting a royalty free license to the Company (see "Item 12. Certain Relationships and Related Party Transactions").
For the twelve months ended, June 30, 2004, the Company's capital needs have primarily been met from the proceeds of (i) private placements of unregistered common stock pursuant to Rule 506 of Regulation D of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act"), to accredited investors at $0.15 per share which raised gross proceeds of $4,500; (ii) private placements of common stock made by the Company pursuant to Regulation S of the Act, at a variable price ranging from 25% to 30% of the closing bid price on the date of the purchase of the stock, which raised gross proceeds of $278,170; and (iii) loans to the Company with a remaining balance $1,225. Total cash provided by financing activities during the year ended September 30, 2004 decreased to $283,895 from $562,420 during the period ended September 30, 2003. The decrease of $278,525 was mainly attributable to a decrease of $336,970 in the use of stock for the payment of services in non-cash transactions.
During the year ended, September 30, 2004, we used $12,267 for investing activities as compared to $3, for the year ended, September 30, 2003. The increased use of cash for investing activities resulted from an increase in the acquisition of assets in the form of equipment and trademark rights.
We had, at September 30, 2003, working capital of $57,344. We anticipate that there will not be sufficient cash generated from operations in the current year necessary to fund our current and anticipated cash requirements. We plan to obtain additional financing from equity and debt placements. We have been able to raise capital in a series of equity and debt offerings in the past. While there can be no assurances that we will be able to obtain such additional financing, on terms acceptable to us and at the times required, or at all, we believe that sufficient capital can be raised in the foreseeable future.
NET OPERATING LOSS
For federal income tax purposes, we have net operating loss carry forwards of approximately $4,328,445 as of September 30, 2004. These carry forwards will begin to expire in 2010. The use of such net operating loss carry forwards to be offset against future taxable income, if achieved, may be subject to specified annual limitations.
