AUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS OF HOTELMOBI INC.
 
REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 
To the Board of Directors and Stockholders
of Hotelmobi, Inc.
 
 
We have audited the accompanying financial statements of Hotelmobi, Inc. (a development stage company), which comprise the balance sheets as of December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2013 and for the period from October 1, 2012 (inception) to December 31, 2012, and for the period from October 1, 2012 (inception) to December 31, 2013, and the related notes to the financial statements. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.
 
We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States of America). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.
 
In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Hotelmobi, Inc.  as of December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year ended December 31, 2013 and for the period from October 1, 2012 (inception) to December 31, 2012 and from October 1, 2012 (inception) to December 31, 2013, in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

1.  DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
 
Description of Business

Hotelmobi Inc. (the “Company” or “Hotelmobi”) is a development stage entity engaged in the business of developing, owning and operating mobile hotel booking applications.
 
Use of Estimates 
 
The preparation of the financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) requires the Company to make estimates and assumptions that affect amounts reported and disclosed in the financial statements and accompanying notes.  Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.  On an ongoing basis, the Company evaluates its estimates, including those related to intangible assets and capitalized software, among other things. 

Software Development Costs
 
The Company capitalizes qualifying costs of computer software and website development costs. Costs incurred during the application development stage as well as upgrades and enhancements that result in additional functionality are capitalized. The internally developed software costs capitalized were approximately $167 thousand and $0 at December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and are included in “Software development costs” in the balance sheets. Internally developed software and website development costs will be amortized utilizing the straight-line method over a period of three years, the expected period of the benefit.  As the project has not been completed as of December 31, 2013 no amortization expense has been recorded for these costs during the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. 

Intangible Assets

Intangible assets consist of domain names and are amortized over a three year period, the expected period of the benefit.
 
Income Taxes
 
The Company recognizes deferred tax assets and liabilities for the anticipated future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement amounts and their respective tax bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities  are recognized for the future tax effects of temporary differences between financial and income tax reporting using tax rates in effect for the years in which the differences are expected to reverse. Valuation allowances are provided if it is more likely than not that a deferred tax asset will not be realized.
 
Management has evaluated all other tax positions that could have a significant effect on the financial statements and determined the Company had no uncertain income tax positions at December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The tax returns of the Company are subject to review by federal and state taxing authorities. The Company’s open audit periods are 2011 and 2012.
 
Stock-Based Compensation
 
Stock based compensation is accounted for at fair value and expensed using a straight line amortization method.  See Note 6.

2.  LIQUIDITY
 
As of December 31, 2013, the Company’s total cash balance was $133. The Company has incurred net losses and generated negative cash flow from operations since inception and has an accumulated deficit of approximately $39 thousand as of December 31, 2013.
 
 
 

 
 
The Company is funded through advances from shareholders to cover current operating obligations on an as needed basis.  These advances are recorded as long-term liabilities on the balance sheets as there is no scheduled repayment date and bear an annual interest rate of 5.25%.  Shareholder advances totaled $61,953 and $16,791 during the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.  As of December 31, 2013 shareholder advances totaled $78,744.
 
See Note 7 for management’s plan regarding liquidity.

3.  SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT COSTS
 
Software development costs consist of the following at December 31, 2013 and 2012:

Amortization expense was $1,796 and $299 for the year ended December 31, 2013 and period from October 1, 2012 (date of inception) through December 31, 2012, respectively.
 
Estimated amortization expense related to domain names for the remaining periods is $1,796 for 2014 and $1,497 for 2015.
 
5.  INCOME TAXES
 
Deferred tax assets are comprised of the following:
 
   
Year Ended December 31, 2013
   
Year Ended December 31, 2012
 
Deferred tax assets:
           
Federal net operating loss carryforwards
  $ 21,845     $ 42

    10,830       709

    (19,259 )        
         Less:     Valuation allowance
    (13,416 )     (751 )
Total deferred tax assets
  $ -     $ -  
 
Management has determined, based on the Company’s current condition that a full valuation allowance is appropriate at December 31, 2013.
 
 
 

 
 
At December 31, 2013, the Company had federal net operating loss carry forwards of $64,249 that begin to expire in 2032.
 
Current United States income tax law limits the amount of loss available to offset against future taxable income when a substantial change in ownership occurs.
 
6.  STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION
 
In 2013 the Company’s Directors granted options to purchase a total of 1,525,000 shares of Hotelmobi’s common stock to four independent contractors.  The options were granted in lieu of compensation for services to be performed.  The options are awarded based on achievement of specific performance milestones, and then vest monthly over a four year period.  The exercise price is equal to the par value of the common stock.  The options do not have an expiration date.
 
In accordance with U.S. GAAP, the Company determines the value of the non-employee options based on the value of the stock at fair value or the value of the services rendered (based on contract or otherwise), whichever is more readily determinable. The fair value of the options was determined to be the average compensation that would have been paid to independent contractors performing the same services over the same period of time. These services are directly related to the development of internal software, and therefore the related stock-based compensation expense is capitalized and included in “Software development costs” in the balance sheets.
 
Capitalized compensation expense relating to stock options during the year ended December 31, 2013 and the period from October 1, 2012 (date of inception) through December 31, 2012 was $110,379 and $0, respectively.
 
As of December 31, 2013, there was $214,440 in total unrecognized compensation costs related to non-vested stock options that will be recognized over a weighted average period of 3.6 years.
 
The following table summarizes the activity of stock options:

(“Remark”) in which Remark acquired all of the Company’s common stock in exchange for the consideration provided under the Merger Agreement. Remark is a global digital media company focusing on the 18-to-34 year old demographic, primarily in the United States and Asia.  Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Hotelmobi merged with and into Roomlia, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Remark (“Merger Sub”), with Merger Sub surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Remark (the “Merger”).

Note 1 – Basis of Presentation

On May 2, 2014, Remark entered into the Merger Agreement with Merger Sub and Hotelmobi.  Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, Hotelmobi merged with and into Merger Sub, with Merger Sub surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, referred to herein as the Merger.  As consideration for the Merger, the outstanding shares of Hotelmobi’s common stock were converted into the right to receive an aggregate of (i) 400,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, (ii) 100,000 shares of the Company’s common stock to be issued on the one year anniversary of the closing of the Merger, provided that the recipient is employed by the Company on such date or was terminated by the Company for any reason, (iii) warrants to purchase 500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $8.00 per share and (iv) warrants to purchase 500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $12.00 per share.  The warrants to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock issued to former Hotelmobi stockholders in the Merger (the “Roomlia Warrants”) vest 12.5% on the last day of each fiscal quarter beginning June 30, 2014, provided the recipient is employed by the Company on such date or has been terminated other than for Cause (as defined in the Merger Agreement).  The Roomlia Warrants expire on the fifth anniversary of their issuance.  Additionally, pursuant to the terms of the Merger Agreement, concurrently with the closing of the Merger, the Company paid Hotelmobi’s principal stockholders a total of $171,894 in cash in repayment of funds they loaned to Hotelmobi.
 
Remark accounted for the above transaction as an acquisition of Hotelmobi in accordance with Accounting Standard Codification 805 - Business Combinations (“ASC 805”) and consolidates the operations of Hotelmobi for financial reporting purposes.

The allocation of the purchase price has not yet been finalized. The management team of Remark will finalize the allocation upon completion of its valuation of the fair value of the assets contributed by Hotelmobi.
