BUSINESS

Our History

Syprus, Inc. was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on May 11, 2006. Prior to the Exchange Transaction, the Company's business was the pursuit of an operational business in order to effect a business combination. This goal was fulfilled with the acquisition of Ricky's Group through the Exchange Transaction on November 27, 2007.

Ricky's Candy, Cones & Chaos, Inc. Organizational History

Ricky's Candy, Cones & Chaos, Inc. was formed under the laws of New Jersey on August 4, 2003, for the purposes of operating restaurants that provide candy, ice cream and parties to children and adults. RCCC currently operates one store located at 140 Nassau Street, Princeton, New Jersey. It is intended that RCCC will be the legal owner of all non-franchised stores utilizing the Ricky's Candy, Cones & Chaos concept.

Ricky's Franchise Group Organizational History

Ricky's Franchise Group was originally formed as a limited liability company under the laws of New Jersey on May 7, 2004. RFG was converted into a corporation under the laws of the state of New Jersey on October 1, 2007. RFG's business is to serve as the Franchisor for the Ricky's Candy, Cones & Chaos' concept in the United States, and to coordinate and manage all franchising efforts.

RFG has 14 franchise locations currently opened in four (4) states. In addition, RFG has commitments to open 37 more domestic stores. Ricky's Groups' strategy is to expand its franchise system domestically and internationally, although there is no assurance this strategy will be achieved.

Overview of the business of Ricky's Group

Ricky's Candy, Cones and Chaos Concept

The Ricky's Candy, Cones and Chaos concept (referred to sometimes hereinafter as "Ricky's") combines five (5) different businesses under one roof. Ricky's stores are highly themed and decorated. They feature flat screen monitors with new and vintage TV Shows and candy commercials. The stores play an all candy themed soundtrack creating a "Willy Wonka" like experience in every store.

The first and largest of Ricky's businesses is candy. Ricky's combines a large assortment of novelty and retro candy with a "wall" of high margin, fast turn-over bulk candy to bring the old neighborhood candy store into the 21st century. The second revenue stream is ice cream. Unlike many of the other ice cream stores in existence today, Ricky's features ice cream made in each and every stores "Chaos Factory", where the customer can watch the ice cream being made fresh daily. Ricky's second ice cream advantage is that everyone is invited to pile on the toppings in the free topping center. While ice cream is currently a highly competitive market, Ricky's Group believes the Ricky's concept appeals to younger families and the "value" created by free toppings allows Ricky's to remain at the top of every market place it has entered. The next largest revenue stream comes from Ricky's birthday parties.

Parties are an integral part of Ricky's business. Parties are conducted in each store by a certified party leader. Ricky's targets the busy working family with children 3-12, but also hosts many bar/baht mitzvah and sweet 16 parties as well as corporate meetings.

The last stream of revenue for the Ricky's concept comes from the sale of our gift baskets and signature Ricky's souvenirs. We started with our original Ricky's the Dragon t-shirts and plush toys. We have since created two (2) additional main characters "Cornelia" and "Jack". We own the trademarks for these characters and all our stores will carry our licensed products based on these characters and others.

Ricky's Franchise Group, Inc.

Our plan is to expand the franchise group, RFG, through the expansion of our franchise network. Currently there are eight (8) franchised stores in New Jersey, three (3) franchised stores in Pennsylvania, two (2) franchised stores in New York, and one franchised store (1) in Massachusetts. In addition, RFG currently has franchise stores under construction in Georgia, Virginia and New York. It is anticipated that all these stores will be open by the end of 2007. Franchise fees and royalties will be the main source of revenue for RFG. RFG will focus its efforts on both the east coast and west coast, and specifically the surrounding suburbs of major regional markets, such as Boston, Washington, Baltimore, Raleigh-Durham, Atlanta, Miami and Orlando.

Having four (4) distinct streams of revenue is a distinct advantage of the Ricky's concept over other franchises. It reduces seasonality, and allows for each store to exploit local trends in the market place based on the strength of one of the four types of income streams. RFG's goal is to sell 100 additional franchise outlets domestically in 2008, with at least 25 open for business by the end of that year; however, there is no assurance that this goal will be met. Ricky's stores were designed to be built and open in an average of 8-10 weeks from completion of the lease. This allows Ricky's to be "first to market" with its concept, which management believes is a competitive advantage. RFG also plans to open five (5) company owned stores in the next 36 months, however, there is no assurance we will meet this goal. RFG will use those stores to open up a prospectus market and either turn them into franchises when a qualified franchisee is secure, or Ricky's Group will keep them as part of the company portfolio.

To enforce the name and develop its brand, Ricky's Group has trademarked and copyrighted all of its logos and characters and has taken other steps to protect its intellectual property. This presents a unique marketing and revenue opportunity as Ricky's Group plans to work to license the use of its characters to be sold in other retail outlets, such as book and toy stores.

Managing Growth

RFG's expansion strategy will depend on its ability to open and manage profitable franchise locations. The opening of new stores will depend on a number of factors, many of which are beyond our control. These factors include, among others, the availability of qualified franchisees, and the cost and availability of suitable lease locations. Although RFG has formulated its expansion strategy based on certain assumptions, it anticipates that, as with most business ventures, it will be subject to changing conditions. RFG's assessments regarding timing and the opening of new stores as well as a variety of other factors may not prove to be correct, and/or such new stores may not be operated profitably.

Competition

The Ricky's concept is somewhat unique in that there is very little "direct" competition. Candy competition is mainly from mall based companies like Sweet Factory, Fuzzy Wiggs, etc. Ice Cream competition includes Cold Stone Creamery and Marble Slab creamery. These businesses have greater resources and market penetration than we do, but they are much more subject to the affects of the winter seasons.

However, we are not aware of another regional or national concept that competes in all four revenue stream categories simultaneously. Our party business competes with many "local" party places and national chains like Chuck E Cheese.

Need for Additional Financing

Ricky's Group will use the additional financing and revenues gained by its existing stores for three purposes. The first is an adverting campaign designed to drive sales in existing stores and establish better brand awareness. The second is to set-up a greater infrastructure to support our existing stores as well as the anticipated growth from our anticipated market expansion. The third is to grow our franchise operations.

Training

Each franchisee spends a total of two weeks training prior to opening their store. The first 6 days are spent at the Princeton store location conducting hands on training with RFG staff. At this time, all topics are covered as well as a comprehensive review of the RFG operations manual. The second week of training is conducted on site and at the new franchise location by the RFG training staff. Every franchisee is required to have at least two people (including the manager) complete the training.

Purchasing

Purchasing responsibility is shared between RFG and the franchisees. RFG negotiates on behalf of the group and establishes terms and discounts for the franchisees. This allows RFG to leverage its size to secure the best pricing, new product exclusives, and better than market payment terms. The franchisee is responsible for the purchasing and delivery of approved merchandise. Each franchisee is also responsible for their own accounts payables. Ricky's stores are constructed with a minimal of storage space, and their delivery schedules allow for maximum turn over of inventory.

Management Information Systems

RFG stores use a PC based point of sale system and the software foundation is the Enterprise Software System. This system allows our franchise partners to track sales, inventory, labor, party reservation as well as gift cards and a frequent shopper program. Ricky's Franchise Group also has access to each of the franchise partners systems and can get live updates on all aspects of their business.

Marketing and Advertising

Ricky's Candy, Cones and Chaos attracts customers with it's highly decorated "theme park" style stores. Whether it's a quick snack or planning the ultimate party, Ricky's offers many different reasons for customers to shop our stores on a regular basis. The objective of Ricky's Group is to increase market share by building a solid brand identity with well planned, system wide campaigns, including advertising, marketing and public relations efforts focused on promoting Ricky's Candy, Cones and Chaos as the "sweetest place in town".

System wide advertising messages are developed to support the brand positioning of Ricky's Group, and to focus on its key business aspects. That message is coordinated with a combination of in store merchandising collateral, as well as traditional mediums such as TV, radio and print.

On the local level franchisees are required to spend 2% of their gross revenues on local media buys that support RFG's system-wide message.

Franchise Operations

Franchising is the key to Ricky's Group expansion program. There are currently 14 franchised stores with two (2) more under construction and scheduled to open by the beginning of 2007. RFG has commitments for 37 more stores, and we expect these to be completed by 2011. RFG's Director of Franchise Development who is responsible for actively promoting the RFG franchising program. RFG believes franchising allows us to attract highly motivated entrepreneurial individuals who can successfully manage retail stores. In addition to the personal characteristics RFG seeks in franchise operators, RFG searches for individuals with the financial capacity to make meaningful investments in their franchised store. RFG assists new franchisees with site selection assistance, protected territory designations, layout, design and equipment specifications, approved suppliers and on-site opening assistance.

RFG's franchise agreement grants the franchisee the right to develop and operate a store and to use the Ricky's Candy, Cones and Chaos names and trademarks within the guidelines established by RFG. Franchisees have the opportunity to become area developers and operate several restaurants within a defined area. RFG plans to increase the number of area developer agreements. The franchise agreements are an initial term of ten years and include one



5




five year option for renewal. RFG has the right to terminate franchise agreements due to various financial defaults, such as repeated failure to timely pay fees, and operational compliance violations, such as those relating to health, safety and sanitation standards. The franchise agreement grants a protected territory to the franchisee, which prohibits RFG or another franchisee from operating a store within the assigned territory. The agreement gives RFG the right of first refusal should a franchisee decide to sell a restaurant.

Franchisees currently pay RFG an initial franchise fee of $30,000.00 per store, and a continuing monthly royalty fee equal to 5% of each stores net revenue. In addition, RFG collects 2% of the net revenue for an advertising "pool" to support national adverting campaigns. RFG does not provide financing for its franchisees. Each franchisee is required to spend 2% of their net revenue on local advertising and marketing efforts. These amounts are subject to change in the future.

After a franchisee is granted approval to operate a store and prior to the opening of the store, the franchisee is required to send two employees to a one week RFG hosted training program. The training covers a wide variety of topics including: ice cream preparation, daily operations, weekly/monthly administration, employee management, safety and sanitation, equipment handling, and inventory management. Prior to the grand opening of a franchise store, RFG sends an opening team to complete the second week of training at the franchise location. RFG currently employs four full time individuals to provide this training to franchisees.

Ongoing support services offered by RFG include operations and marketing, consultations, group purchasing programs and scheduled visits from the management staff.

Trademarks

We have both trademarks and copyrights for all of our logos and characters, and we will actively protect all our trademarks and copyrights.

Insurance

Ricky's Group does not have insurance for any of the following items: property, business liability or business disruption. Further, it does not have key man insurance for its officers and executive managers. Therefore, the loss of one or more of its officers and executive managers will adversely affect its business and operations. There is no assurance that Ricky's Group will not incur liability in the event of a lawsuit. Ricky's Group has applied for, and the director and officer appointees have made it a priority to acquire officer and director's liability insurance.

Government Regulations

Ricky's Group and its franchisees are subject to various regulations relating to the manufacture and delivery of food, these laws are developed and enforced by local health departments and the United States Food and Drug Administration.

Employees

Ricky's Group has two full-time employees and several part-time employees. RFG has two (2) full-time employees and  RCCC has several part-time employees.

DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY

Ricky's Group has no real estate and its property consists primarily of furniture, fixtures and equipment.

LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

We know of no material, active, pending or threatened proceeding against us or Ricky's Group, nor are we or Ricky's Group involved as a plaintiff in any material proceeding or pending litigation.

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OR PLAN OF OPERATION

Overview

We were organized under the laws of the State of Nevada, on May 11, 2006. We were initially a blank check company whose business was to seek out and acquire or combine with an operating company or operating business. On November 27, 2007 we exchanged certain shares of our common stock for all the outstanding stock of Ricky's Candy, Cones & Chaos, Inc. and Ricky's Franchise Group, Inc. RCCC was incorporated under the laws of the state of New Jersey on August 4, 2003 and it operates retail restaurants in the Ricky's Group system.  RFG was incorporated under the laws of the state of New Jersey on May 7, 2004 and it operates the franchise system for Ricky's Group.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

We have disclosed in notes to our financial statements those accounting policies that we consider to be significant in determining our results of operations and our financial position, which are incorporated by reference herein. We believe that the following reflect the more critical accounting policies that currently affect our financial condition and results of operations.

Cash and Cash Equivalent

Cash and Cash Equivalents include all cash, deposits in banks and other highly liquid investments with initial maturities of three months or less.

Use of estimates

In preparing the consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, management makes estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the dates of the financial statements, as well as the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.

Revenue Recognition

The Company's revenue-earning activities will involve the sale of ice cream, candy, etc. in its retail stores and the receipt of franchise fees and franchise royalties. Revenue is recognized and considered realized and earned at the time of the sales transaction when the merchandise has been delivered. Franchise fees and royalties are considered earned when all material services or conditions relating to the sale have been substantially performed or satisfied by RFG, the franchisor.

Comprehensive Income (Loss)

The Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board Statement of Financial Accounting Standards.  (SFAS) No. 130, "Reporting Comprehensive Income", which establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive income and its components in the financial statements. There were no items of comprehensive income (loss) applicable to the Company during the periods covered in the financial statements.

Advertising Costs

Advertising costs will be expensed as incurred. The Company will not incur any direct-response advertising costs. Advertising costs for Ricky's Group were $4,220 for the seven months ended July 31, 2007.



7




Net Loss per Common Share-Statement

Financial Accounting Standard (SFAS) No. 128 requires dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) with a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the EPS computations. Basic earnings per share amounts are based on the weighted average shares of common stock outstanding. If applicable, diluted earnings per share would assume the conversion, exercise or issuance of all potential common stock instruments such as options, warrants and convertible securities, unless the effect is to reduce a loss or increase earnings per share. Accordingly, this presentation has been adopted for the period presented. There were no adjustments required to net loss for the period presented in the computation of diluted earnings per share.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, accounts receivable and payables approximate fair value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments.

Accounts Receivable

Accounts deemed uncollectible are written off in the year they become uncollectible.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

The Company evaluates the recoverability of its property and equipment, and other assets in accordance with Statements of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 144, "Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets". This Statement addresses financial accounting and reporting for the impairment of long-lived assets and for long-lived assets to be disposed of. This Statement supersedes FASB Statement No. 121, Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed Of. However, this Statement retains the fundamental provisions of Statement 121 for (a) recognition and measurement of the impairment of long-lived assets to be held and used and (b) measurement of long-lived assets to be disposed of by sale.

Indemnification of Our Directors and Officers

Although Nevada law allows us to indemnify our directors, officers, employees, and agents, under certain circumstances, against attorney's fees and other expenses incurred by them in any litigation to which they become a party arising from their association with or activities on our behalf, and under certain circumstances to advance the expenses of such litigation upon securing their promise to repay us if it is ultimately determined that indemnification will not be allowed to an individual in that litigation, neither our articles of incorporation or by-laws impose an indemnity obligation upon us. In addition, we have not entered into any agreements under which we have assumed such an indemnity obligation.



11




MARKET FOR OUR COMMON STOCK

There is currently no market for our common stock, and the Company's common stock is not trading on any exchange. The Company is not aware of any market activity in its stock since its inception through the date of this filing.

Penny Stock Regulations

The SEC has adopted regulations, which generally define "penny stock" to be an equity security that has a market price of less than $5.00 per share. Our common stock, when and if a trading market develops, may fall within the definition of penny stock and subject to rules that impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell such securities to persons other than established customers and accredited investors (generally those with assets in excess of $1,000,000, or annual incomes exceeding $200,000 or $300,000, together with their spouse).

For transactions covered by these rules, the broker-dealer must make a special suitability determination for the purchase of such securities and have received the purchaser's prior written consent to the transaction. Additionally, for any transaction, other than exempt transactions, involving a penny stock, the rules require the delivery, prior to the transaction, of a risk disclosure document mandated by the Securities and Exchange Commission relating to the penny stock market. The broker-dealer also must disclose the commissions payable to both the broker-dealer and the registered representative, current quotations for the securities and, if the broker-dealer is the sole market maker, the broker-dealer must disclose this fact and the broker-dealer's presumed control over the market. Finally, monthly statements must be sent disclosing recent price information for the penny stock held in the account and information on the limited market in penny stocks. Consequently, the "penny stock" rules may restrict the ability of broker-dealers to sell our common stock and may affect the ability of investors to sell our common stock in the secondary market in the event a market in the stock does develop.

Common Stock

We are authorized to issue 100,000,000 shares of common stock with a par value of $.0001 per share. Following the Exchange Transaction on November 27, 2007, 20,700,000 shares of our common stock were issued and outstanding. Each outstanding share of common stock is entitled to one vote, either in person or by proxy, on all matters that may be voted upon by the owners thereof at meetings of the stockholders.

Our shareholders have no pre-emptive rights to acquire additional shares of common stock. The common stock is not subject to redemption or any sinking fund provision, and it carries no subscription or conversion rights. In the event of our liquidation, the holders of the common stock will be entitled to share equally in the corporate assets after satisfaction of all liabilities.

The description contained in this section does not purport to be complete. Reference is made to our certificate of incorporation and bylaws, which are available for inspection upon proper notice at our offices, as well as to the Nevada Corporation Code for a more complete description covering the rights and liabilities of shareholders.

Holders of our common stock

(i)

have equal ratable rights to dividends from funds legally available therefore, if declared by our Board of Directors,

(ii)

are entitled to share ratably in all our assets available for distribution to holders of common stock upon our liquidation, dissolution or winding up;

(iii)

do not have preemptive, subscription or conversion rights or redemption or sinking fund provisions; and

(iv)

are entitled to one non-cumulative vote per share on all matters on which stockholders may vote at all meetings of our stockholders.



12




The holders of shares of our common stock do not have cumulative voting rights, which means that the holders of more than fifty percent (50%) of outstanding shares voting for the election of directors can elect all of our directors if they so choose and, in such event, the holders of the remaining shares will not be able to elect any of our directors.

Dividends

Our board of directors has not declared a dividend on our common stock since our inception and we do not anticipate paying dividends in the near future, as we intend to reinvest our earnings, if any, to improve and increase our operations.

Shares Eligible For Future Sale

There has been no public market for our common stock and we cannot assure you that a significant public market for our common stock will be developed or be sustained in the future. Sales of substantial amounts of common stock in the public market, or the possibility of substantial sales occurring, could adversely affect prevailing market prices for our common stock or our future ability to raise capital through an offering of equity securities.

The shares of our common stock currently outstanding are "restricted securities" as that term is defined in the Securities Act.

We have not issued any options or warrants to purchase, or securities convertible into, our common equity.

Preferred Stock

Our Board of Directors is authorized under our Articles of Incorporation to provide for the issuance of shares of preferred stock, by resolution or resolutions for the issuance of such stock, and, by filing a certificate of designations under Nevada law, to fix the designation, powers, preferences and rights of the shares of each such series and the qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof without any further vote or action by the shareholders. Any shares of preferred stock so issued are likely to have priority over our common stock with respect to dividend or liquidation rights. The authority of the Board of Directors with respect to the Preferred Stock shall include, but not be limited to, setting or changing the following:

1.

the annual dividend rate, if any, on shares of Preferred Stock, the times of payment and the date from which dividends shall be accumulated, if dividends are to be cumulative;

2.

whether the shares of Preferred Stock shall be redeemable and, if so, the redemption price and the terms and conditions of such redemption;

3.

the obligation, if any, of the Company to redeem shares of Preferred Stock pursuant to a sinking fund;

4.

whether shares of Preferred Stock shall be convertible into, or exchangeable for, shares of stock of any other class or classes and, if so, the terms and conditions of such conversion or exchange, including the price or prices or the rate or rates of conversion or exchange and the terms of adjustment, if any;

5.

whether the shares of Preferred Stock shall have voting rights, and, if so, the extent of such voting rights;

6.

the rights of the shares of Preferred Stock in the event of voluntary or involuntary liquidation, dissolution or winding-up of the Corporation; and

7.

any other relative rights, powers, preferences, qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof relating to the Preferred Stock.



13




The issuance of shares of preferred stock, or the issuance of rights to purchase such shares, could be used to discourage an unsolicited acquisition proposal. For instance, the issuance of a series of preferred stock might impede a business combination by including class voting rights that would enable the holder to block such a transaction, or facilitate a business combination by including voting rights that would provide a required percentage vote of the stockholders. In addition, under certain circumstances, the issuance of preferred stock could adversely affect the voting power of the holders of the common stock. Although the Board of Directors is required to make any determination to issue such stock based on its judgment as to the best interests of our stockholders, the Board of Directors could act in a manner that would discourage an acquisition attempt or other transaction that some, or a majority, of the stockholders might believe to be in their best interests or in which stockholders might receive a premium for their stock over the then market price of such stock. The Board of Directors does not at present intend to seek stockholder approval prior to any issuance of currently authorized preferred stock, unless otherwise required by law.

As a result thereof, immediately after the closing of the Exchange Transaction, there occurred a change in control in the Board of Directors, which is now made up of the following five persons: Richard C. Barber, Charles Alario, J. Richard Cusick, Samuel A. Hupp and Frederic C. Fray.

(A DEVELOPMENT STAGE COMPANY)

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE PERIOD ENDED JULY 31, 2007

=============================================================


NOTE A—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES


Business Activity—Syprus, Inc. (The Company) was organized under the laws of the State of Nevada on May 11, 2006 as a corporation.  The Company’s objective is to acquire or merge with a target business or company in a business combination.  

Basis of Presentation—The financial statements included herein were prepared under the accrual basis of accounting.

Cash and Cash Equivalents—For purposes of the Statement of Cash Flows, the Company considers liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

Management’s Use of Estimates—The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.  The financial statements above reflect all of the costs of doing business.

Revenue RecognitionThe Company’s policy is to recognize income when it is earned.

Comprehensive Income (Loss)The Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 130, “Reporting Comprehensive Income”, which establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive income and its components in the  financial statements.  There were no items of comprehensive income (loss) applicable to the Company during the period covered in the financial statements.

Net Income per Common Share—Statement of Financial Accounting Standard (SFAS) No. 128 requires dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) with a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the EPS computations.  Basic earnings per share amounts are based on the weighted average shares of common stock outstanding.  If applicable, diluted earnings per share would assume the conversion, exercise or issuance of all potential common stock instruments such as options, warrants and convertible securities, unless the effect is to reduce a loss or increase earnings per share.  Accordingly, this presentation has been adopted for the period presented.  There were no adjustments required to net income for the period presented in the computation of diluted earnings per share.

FOR THE PERIOD ENDED JULY 31, 2007

=============================================================


NOTE A—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT.)

Deferred Taxes

Income taxes are provided in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 109 (SFAS No. 109), “Accounting for Income Taxes.” A deferred tax asset or liability is recorded for all temporary differences between financial and tax reporting and net operating loss-carry forwards.


Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that, some portion or all of the deferred tax asset will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effect of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.


Fair Value of Financial Instruments—The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, accounts receivable and payable approximate fair value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments.


Accounts Receivable—Accounts deemed uncollectible are written off in the year they become uncollectible.  The Accounts Receivable balance as of July 31, 2007 was $0.


Impairment of Long-Lived AssetsThe Company evaluates the recoverability of its fixed assets and other assets in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144, Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets” (“SFAS 144’). SFAS 144 requires recognition of impairment of long-lived assets in the event the net book value of such assets exceeds its expected cash flows, it is considered to be impaired and is written down to fair value, which is determined based on either discounted future cash flows or appraised values. The Company adopted the statement on inception. No impairments of these types of assets were recognized during the period ended July 31, 2007.


Stock-Based CompensationThe Company accounts for stock-based compensation using the fair value method of Financial Accounting Standard No. 123. Common shares issued for services rendered by a third party (both employees and non-employees) are recorded at the fair value of the shares issued or services rendered, whichever is more readily determinable.


Recent Accounting Pronouncements—In May 2005, the FASB issued SFAS No. 154, "Accounting Changes and Error Corrections - a replacement of APB Opinion No. 20 and

NOTE A—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT’D)


Recent Accounting Pronouncements (cont’d)

In March 2006, the FASB issued SFAS Statement No. 156, “Accounting for Servicing of Financial Assets—an amendment of FASB Statement No. 140”.  This Statement amends FASB Statement No. 140, “Accounting for Transfers and Servicing of Financial Assets and Extinguishments of Liabilities” with respect to the accounting for separately recognized servicing assets and servicing liabilities.  This Statement requires that an entity recognize a servicing asset or servicing liability each time it undertakes an obligation to service a financial asset by entering into a servicing contract.  This Statement requires all separately recognized servicing assets and servicing liabilities to be initially measured at fair value, if practicable and it permits an entity to choose either the Amortization Method or the Fair Value Method for each class of separately recognized servicing assets and servicing liabilities.  At its initial adoption, the Statement permits a one-time reclassification of available-for-sale securities to trading securities by entities with recognized servicing rights, without calling into question the treatment of other available-for-sale securities under SFAS No. 115.  This Statement is effective as of the beginning of an entity's first fiscal year that begins after September 15, 2006. Earlier application is permitted if the entity has not yet issued interim or annual financial statements for that fiscal year.  The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.


In June 2006, the FASB issued FIN 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes—an interpretation of FASB No. 109.  This Interpretation clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements in accordance with FASB No. 109, “Accounting for Income Taxes”.  This interpretation prescribes recognition of 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.  This interpretation also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure, and transition.  This interpretation is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2006. Earlier application is permitted if the entity has not yet issued interim or annual financial statements for that fiscal year.  The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.


In September 2006, the FASB issued Statement No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements”.  This Statement defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.  This statement applies under other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements, the Board having previously concluded in

those accounting pronouncements that fair value is the relevant measurement attribute.  Accordingly, SFAS No. 157 does not require any new fair value measurements.  However, for some entities, the application of SFAS No. 157 will change current practice.  This Statement is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007, and all interim periods within those fiscal years. Earlier application is permitted if the entity has not yet issued interim or annual financial statements for that fiscal year.  Early adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations or its financial position, but the Company is evaluating the Statement to determine what impact, if any, it will have on the Company.


In September 2006, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 158, “Employers’ Accounting for Defined Benefit Pension and Other Postretirement Plans, an amendment of FASB Statements No. 87, 88, 106 and 132(R)” (“SFAS 158”). This statement requires balance sheet recognition of the funded status, which is the difference between the fair value of plan assets and the benefit obligation, of pension and postretirement benefit plans as a net asset or liability, with an offsetting adjustment to accumulate other comprehensive income in shareholders’ equity. In addition, the measurement date, the date at which plan assets and the benefit obligation are measured, is required to be the company’s fiscal year end. The Company currently Company is currently evaluating the Statement to determine what impact, if any, it will have on the Company.

NOTE C—SEGMENT REPORTING


In June 1997, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 131, “Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information.”  This statement requires companies to report information about operating segments in interim and annual financial statements.  It also requires segment

disclosures about products and services, geographic areas and major customers.  The Company determined that it did not have any separately reportable operating segments as of July 31, 2007.


NOTE D—GOING CONCERN


As shown in the accompanying financial statements, the Company had a net loss of $7,500 and a net deficiency of $7,500.  The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern must be considered in light of the problems, expenses, and complications frequently encountered by entrance into established markets and the competitive environment in which the Company operates.  These factors, among others, indicate that the Company may be unable to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.


NOTE E—CAPITAL STOCK


The Company is authorized to issue 100,000,000 common shares at $.0001 par value per share.

NOTE G—INCOME TAXES


Due to the operating loss and the inability to recognize an income tax benefit there from, there is no provision for current or deferred federal or state income taxes for the period from inception (May 11) through July 31, 2007.


Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amount used for federal and state income tax purposes.


The Company’s total deferred tax asset, calculated using federal and state effective tax rates, as of July 31, 2007 is as follows:

Total Deferred Tax Asset

 $      2,850

Valuation Allowance

        (2,850)

Net Deferred Tax Asset

 $           -   


The reconciliation of income taxes computed at the federal statutory income tax rate to total income taxes for the period from inception through July 31, 2007 is as follows:

Income tax computed at the federal statutory rate

 

34%

State income tax, net of federal tax benefit

 

4%

Total   

 

38%

Valuation allowance

Total deferred tax asset

 

0%


Because of the Company’s lack of earnings history, the deferred tax asset has been fully offset by a valuation allowance.  The valuation allowance increased (decreased) by approximately $2,850.


As of July 31, 2007, the Company had a federal and state net operating loss carry forward in the amount of approximately $7,500, which expires in the year 2026.


NOTE H—NOTES PAYABLE


As of July 31, 2007, the Company did not have any outstanding notes payables.

NOTE I – DEVELOPMENT STAGE COMPANY


The Company is in the development stage as of July 31, 2007 and to date has had no significant operations.  Recovery of the Company’s assets is dependent on future events, the outcome of which is indeterminable. In addition, successful completion of the Company’s development program and its transition, ultimately, to attaining profitable operations is dependent upon obtaining adequate financing to fulfill its development activities and achieving a level of sales adequate to support the Company’s cost structure.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM




To the Board of Directors and
Stockholders of Syprus, Inc.



I have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Syprus, Inc. (A Development Stage Company) as of December 31, 2006, and the related statements of operation, stockholders’ equity and comprehensive income, and cash flows for the period from inception (May 11, 2006) through December 31, 2006.

These financial statements are the responsibility of the company’s management. My responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on my audit.

I conducted my audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that I plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. I believe that my audit provides a reasonable basis for my opinion.

In my opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Syprus, Inc. (A Development Stage Company) as of December 31, 2006, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the period from inception (May 11, 2006) through December 31, 2006 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern.  As discussed in Note I to the financial statements, the Company is in the development stage, has suffered recurring losses, has a net capital deficiency and has yet to generate an internal cash flow.  These factors raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.  Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note D.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

SYPRUS, INC.

(A DEVELOPMENT STAGE COMPANY)

NOTES TO THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

FOR THE PERIOD ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2006

==============================================================


NOTE A—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES


Business Activity—Syprus, Inc. (The Company) was organized under the laws of the State of Nevada on May 11, 2006 as a corporation.  The Company’s objective is to acquire or merge with a target business or company in a business combination.  


Basis of Presentation—The financial statements included herein were prepared under the accrual basis of accounting.


Cash and Cash Equivalents—For purposes of the Statement of Cash Flows, the Company considers liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.


Management’s Use of Estimates—The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.  The financial statements above reflect all of the costs of doing business.


Revenue RecognitionThe Company’s policy is to recognize income when it is earned.


Comprehensive Income (Loss)The Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 130, “Reporting Comprehensive Income”, which establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive income and its components in the financial statements.  There were no items of comprehensive income (loss) applicable to the Company during the period covered in the financial statements.


Net Income per Common Share—Statement of Financial Accounting Standard (SFAS) No. 128 requires dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) with a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the EPS computations.  Basic earnings per share amounts are based on the weighted average shares of common stock outstanding.  If applicable, diluted earnings per share would assume the conversion, exercise or issuance of all potential common stock instruments such as options, warrants and convertible securities, unless the effect is to reduce a loss or increase earnings per share.  Accordingly, this presentation has been adopted for the period presented.  There were no adjustments required to net income for the period presented in the computation of diluted earnings per share.


Deferred Taxes

Income taxes are provided in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 109 (SFAS No. 109), “Accounting for Income Taxes.” A deferred tax asset or liability is



38




NOTE A—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT.)


recorded for all temporary differences between financial and tax reporting and net operating loss-carry forwards.


Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that, some portion or all of the deferred tax asset will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effect of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.


Fair Value of Financial Instruments—The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, accounts receivable and payable approximate fair value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments.


Accounts Receivable—Accounts deemed uncollectible are written off in the year they become uncollectible.  The Accounts Receivable balance as of December 31, 2006 was $0.


Impairment of Long-Lived AssetsThe Company evaluates the recoverability of its fixed assets and other assets in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144, Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets” (“SFAS 144’). SFAS 144 requires recognition of impairment of long-lived assets in the event the net book value of such assets exceeds its expected cash flows, it is considered to be impaired and is written down to fair value, which is determined based on either discounted future cash flows or appraised values. The Company adopted the statement on inception. No impairments of these types of assets were recognized during the period ended December 31, 2006.


Stock-Based CompensationThe Company accounts for stock-based compensation using the fair value method of Financial Accounting Standard No. 123. Common shares issued for services rendered by a third party (both employees and non-employees) are recorded at the fair value of the shares issued or services rendered, whichever is more readily determinable.


Recent Accounting Pronouncements—In May 2005, the FASB issued SFAS No. 154, "Accounting Changes and Error Corrections - a replacement of APB Opinion No. 20 and FASB Statement No. 3" ("SFAS 154"). SFAS 154 changes the requirements for the accounting for and reporting of a change in accounting principle. These requirements apply to all voluntary changes and changes required by an accounting pronouncement in the unusual instance that the pronouncement does not include specific transition provisions. SFAS 154 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2005. The Company does not expect the adoption of SFAS 154 to have a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.  


In February 2006, the FASB issued SFAS Statement No. 155, “Accounting for Certain Hybrid Financial Instruments—an amendment of FASB Statements No. 133 and 140” ("SFAS 155").



39




NOTE A—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT’D)


This Statement amends FASB Statements No. 133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities, and No. 140, Accounting for Transfers and Servicing of Financial Assets and Extinguishments of Liabilities. This Statement resolves issues addressed in Statement 133 Implementation Issue No. D1, “Application of Statement 133 to Beneficial Interests in Securitized Financial Assets.” This Statement permits fair value re-measurement for any hybrid financial instrument that contains an embedded derivative that otherwise would require bifurcation, clarifies which interest-only strips and principal-only strips are not subject to the requirements of Statement 133, establishes a requirement to evaluate interests in securitized financial assets to identify interests that are freestanding derivatives or that are hybrid financial instruments that contain an embedded derivative requiring bifurcation, clarifies that concentrations of credit risk in the form of subordination are not embedded derivatives and amends Statement 140 to eliminate the prohibition on a qualifying special-purpose entity from holding a derivative financial instrument that pertains to a beneficial interest other than another derivative financial instrument. SFAS 155 is effective for all financial instruments acquired or issued for the Company for fiscal year begins after September 15, 2006. The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

NOTE D—GOING CONCERN

As shown in the accompanying financial statements, the Company had a net loss of $7,500 and a net deficiency of $7,500.  The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern must be considered in light of the problems, expenses, and complications frequently encountered by entrance into established markets and the competitive environment in which the Company operates.  These factors, among others, indicate that the Company may be unable to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.


NOTE E—CAPITAL STOCK

Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amount used for federal and state income tax purposes.




42




The Company’s total deferred tax asset, calculated using federal and state effective tax rates, as of December 31, 2006 is as follows:

Total Deferred Tax Asset

 $      2,850

Valuation Allowance

        (2,850)

Net Deferred Tax Asset

 $           -   


The reconciliation of income taxes computed at the federal statutory income tax rate to total income taxes for the period from inception through December 31, 2006 is as follows:


 

 

2006

Income tax computed at the federal statutory rate

 

34%

State income tax, net of federal tax benefit

 

4%

Total   

 

38%

Valuation allowance

 

-38%

Total deferred tax asset

 

0%


Because of the Company’s lack of earnings history, the deferred tax asset has been fully offset by a valuation allowance.  The valuation allowance increased (decreased) by approximately $2,850.


As of December 31, 2006, the Company had a federal and state net operating loss carry forward in the amount of approximately $7,500, which expires in the year 2026.


NOTE H—NOTES PAYABLE


As of December 31, 2006, the Company did not have any outstanding notes payables.


NOTE I – DEVELOPMENT STAGE COMPANY


The Company is in the development stage as of December 31, 2006 and to date has had no significant operations.  Recovery of the Company’s assets is dependent on future events, the outcome of which is indeterminable. In addition, successful completion of the Company’s development program and its transition, ultimately, to attaining profitable operations is dependent upon obtaining adequate financing to fulfill its development activities and achieving a level of sales adequate to support the Company’s cost structure.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR’S REPORT



Ricky’s Candy, Cones, & Chaos, Inc.

Princeton, NJ


I have audited the accompanying balance sheet of Ricky’s Candy, Cones, & Chaos, Inc. as of July 31, 2007, and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ deficit and comprehensive loss, and cash flows for the seven months ended July 31, 2007. These financial statements are the responsibility of the company’s management. My responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on my audits.


I conducted my audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that I plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. I believe that my audits provide a reasonable basis for my opinion.


In my opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Ricky’s Candy, Cones, & Chaos, Inc. as of July 31, 2007, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the seven months ended July 31, 2007 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.


The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern.  The Company has recurring losses and has yet to generate an internal cash flow that raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.  Management’s plans in regard to these matters are described in Note H.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTE A—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Business Activity—Ricky’s Candy, Cones, & Chaos, Inc., (the Company) was formed in the State of New Jersey on August 4, 2003 as an S-Corporation.  The Company is in the retail ice cream and candy business.

Cash and Cash Equivalents—For purposes of the Statement of Cash Flows, the Company considers liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

Management’s Use of Estimates—The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Revenue RecognitionThe Company’s revenue-earning activities involve the sale of ice cream, candy, etc…in its retail store.  Revenue is recognized and considered realized and earned at the time of the sales transaction when the merchandise has been delivered.  

Comprehensive Income (Loss)The Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 130, “Reporting Comprehensive Income”, which establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive income and its components in the financial statements.  There were no items of comprehensive income (loss) applicable to the Company during the periods covered in the financial statements.

Advertising Costs—Advertising costs are expensed as incurred. The Company does not incur any direct-response advertising costs.  Advertising costs were $4,220 for the seven months ended July 31, 2007.

Net Loss per Common Share—Statement of Financial Accounting Standard (SFAS) No. 128 requires dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) with a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the EPS computations.  Basic earnings per share amounts are based on the weighted average shares of common stock outstanding.  If applicable, diluted earnings per share would assume the conversion, exercise or issuance of all potential common stock instruments such as options, warrants and convertible securities, unless the effect is to reduce a loss or increase earnings per share.  Accordingly, this presentation has been adopted for the period presented.  There were no adjustments required to net loss for the period presented in the computation of diluted earnings per share.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments—The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, accounts receivable and payable approximate fair value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments.

Accounts Receivable—Accounts deemed uncollectible are written off in the year they become uncollectible.  

Impairment of Long-Lived AssetsThe Company evaluates the recoverability of its property and equipment, and other assets in accordance with Statements of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets”.  This Statement addresses financial accounting and reporting for the impairment of long-lived assets and for long-lived assets to be disposed of.  This Statement supersedes FASB Statement No. 121, Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed Of.  However, this Statement retains the fundamental provisions of Statement 121 for (a) recognition and measurement of the impairment of long-lived assets to be held and used and (b) measurement of long-lived assets to be disposed of by sale.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements.  In May 2005, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 154 “Accounting Changes and Error Corrections – a replacement of APB Opinion No. 20 and FASB Statement No. 3.” This Statement replaces APB Opinion No. 20, “Accounting Changes”, and FASB Statement No. 3, “Reporting Accounting Changes in Interim Financial Statements” and changes the requirements for the accounting for and reporting of a change in accounting principle. This Statement applies to all voluntary changes in accounting principle.  It also applies to changes required by an accounting pronouncement in the unusual instance that the pronouncement does not include specific transition provision. When a pronouncement includes specific transition provisions, those provisions should be followed. The Company has no transactions that would be subject to SFAS 154.

In February 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 155, Accounting for Certain Hybrid Instruments-an amendment of FASB Statements No. 133 and 140.  SFAS 155 allows financial instruments that have embedded derivatives to be accounted for as a whole if the holder elects to account for the whole instrument on a fair value basis. SFAS 155 eliminates the need to bifurcate the derivative from its host, as previously required under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedge Accounting.  SFAS 155 also amends SFAS 133 by establishing a requirement to evaluate interests in securitized financial assets to determine whether they are free standing derivatives or whether they contain embedded derivatives that require bifurcation. SFAS 155 is effective for all hybrid financial instruments acquired or issued by the Company on or after January 1, 2007. The Company does not anticipate any material impact to its financial condition or results of operations as a result of the adoption of SFAS 155.

In March 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 156, “Accounting for Servicing of Financial Assets”.  SFAS 156 addresses the accounting for recognized servicing assets and servicing liabilities related to certain transfers of the servicer’s financial assets and for acquisitions or assumptions of obligations to service financial assets that do not relate to the financial assets of the servicer and its related parties. SFAS 156 requires that all recognized servicing assets and servicing liabilities are initially measured at fair value, and subsequently measured at either fair value or by applying an amortization method for each class of recognized servicing assets and servicing liabilities. SFAS 156 is effective in fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2006. The adoption of SFAS 156 is not expected to have a material impact on the financial statements.

In June 2006, the FASB issued FIN 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes—an interpretation of FASB No. 109.  This Interpretation clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements in accordance with FASB No. 109, “Accounting for Income Taxes”.  This interpretation prescribes recognition of 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.  This interpretation also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure, and transition.  This interpretation is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2006. Earlier application is permitted if the entity has not yet issued interim or annual financial statements for that fiscal year.  The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

NOTES TO AUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the Period ended July 31, 2007



NOTE A—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT’)


Recent Accounting Pronouncements (cont’)


In September 2006, the FASB issued Statement No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements”.  This Statement defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.  This statement applies under other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements, the Board having previously concluded in those accounting pronouncements that fair value is the relevant measurement attribute.  Accordingly, SFAS No. 157 does not require any new fair value measurements.  However, for some entities, the application of SFAS No. 157 will change current practice.  This Statement is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007, and all interim periods within those fiscal years. Earlier application is permitted if the entity has not yet issued interim or annual financial statements for that fiscal year.  Early adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations or its financial position, but the Company is evaluating the Statement to determine what impact, if any, it will have on the Company.


In September 2006, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 158, “Employers’ Accounting for Defined Benefit Pension and Other Postretirement Plans, an amendment of FASB Statements No. 87, 88, 106 and 132(R)” (“SFAS 158”). This statement requires balance sheet recognition of the funded status, which is the difference between the fair value of plan assets and the benefit obligation, of pension and postretirement benefit plans as a net asset or liability, with an offsetting adjustment to accumulate other comprehensive income in shareholders’ deficit. In addition, the measurement date, the date at which plan assets and the benefit obligation are measured, is required to be the company’s fiscal year end. The Company currently Company is currently evaluating the Statement to determine what impact, if any, it will have on the Company.


NOTE B—SUPPLEMENTAL CASH FLOW INFORMATION


Supplemental disclosures of cash flow information for the period ended July 31, 2007 is summarized as follows:


CASH PAID DURING THE YEARS FOR INTEREST AND INCOME TAXES:

 

 

 

Income Tax

 $              -

NOTE C—SEGMENT REPORTING


In June 1997, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 131, “Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information.”  This statement requires companies to report information about operating segments in interim and annual financial statements.  It also requires segment disclosures about products and services, geographic areas and major customers.  The Company determined that it did not have any separately reportable operating segments as of July 31, 2007 and 2005.

NOTE D—COMMON STOCK

The Company is authorized to issue 100,000 shares of no par common stock.  As of July 31, 2007, the Company had 1,000 shares outstanding.

NOTE E—COMMITMENTS/LEASES

In 2004, the Company entered into a Lease Agreement whereby the Company agreed to lease retail space of approximately 3,250 square feet.

Management believes that actions presently being taken to raise equity capital, seek strategic relationships and alliances, and build its marketing efforts to generate positive cash flow provide the means for the Company to continue as a going concern.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTE I—SUBSEQUENT EVENTS


On October 1, 2007, the Company adopted a formal resolution to merge the Company into Ricky’s Holdings, Inc., which will be formed in order to acquire a public company and to sell a portion of the shares to the public in accordance with requirements of the various securities laws.

RICKY’S CANDY, CONES, & CHAOS, INC.

NOTES TO AUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the Year Ended December 31, 2006



NOTE A—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Business Activity—Ricky’s Candy, Cones, & Chaos, Inc., (the Company) was formed in the State of New Jersey on August 4, 2003 as an S-Corporation.  The Company is in the retail ice cream and candy business.


Cash and Cash Equivalents—for purposes of the Statement of Cash Flows, the Company considers liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.


Management’s Use of Estimates—The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.


Revenue RecognitionThe Company’s revenue-earning activities involve the sale of ice cream, candy, etc…in its retail store.  Revenue is recognized and considered realized and earned at the time of the sales transaction when the merchandise has been delivered.  


Comprehensive Income (Loss)The Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 130, “Reporting Comprehensive Income”, which establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive income and its components in the financial statements.  There were no items of comprehensive income (loss) applicable to the Company during the periods covered in the financial statements.


Advertising Costs—Advertising costs are expensed as incurred. The Company does not incur any direct-response advertising costs.  Advertising costs were $1,475.00 and $0.00 for the years ended December 31, 2006 and 2005 respectively.


Net Loss per Common Share—Statement of Financial Accounting Standard (SFAS) No. 128 requires dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) with a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the EPS computations.  Basic earnings per share amounts are based on the weighted average shares of common stock outstanding.  If applicable, diluted earnings per share would assume the conversion, exercise or issuance of all potential common stock instruments such as options, warrants and convertible securities, unless the effect is to reduce a loss or increase earnings per share.  Accordingly, this presentation has been adopted for the period presented.  There were no adjustments required to net loss for the period presented in the computation of diluted earnings per share.


Fair Value of Financial Instruments—The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, accounts receivable and payable approximate fair value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments.


Accounts Receivable—Accounts deemed uncollectible are written off in the year they become uncollectible.  


Impairment of Long-Lived AssetsThe Company evaluates the recoverability of its property and equipment, and other assets in accordance with Statements of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets”.  This Statement addresses financial accounting and reporting for the impairment of long-lived assets and for long-lived assets to be disposed of.  This Statement supersedes FASB Statement No. 121, Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed Of.  However, this Statement retains the fundamental provisions of Statement 121 for (a) recognition and

measurement of the impairment of long-lived assets to be held and used and (b) measurement of long-lived assets to be disposed of by sale.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements—In May 2005, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 154 “Accounting Changes and Error Corrections – a replacement of APB Opinion No. 20 and FASB Statement No. 3.” This Statement replaces APB Opinion No. 20, “Accounting Changes”, and FASB Statement No. 3, “Reporting Accounting Changes in Interim Financial Statements” and changes the requirements for the accounting for and reporting of a change in accounting principle. This Statement applies to all voluntary changes in accounting principle.  It also applies to changes required by an accounting pronouncement in the unusual instance that the pronouncement does not include specific transition provision. When a pronouncement includes specific transition provisions, those provisions should be followed. The Company has no transactions that would be subject to SFAS 154.


In February 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 155, Accounting for Certain Hybrid Instruments-an amendment of FASB Statements No. 133 and 140. SFAS 155 allows financial instruments that have embedded derivatives to be accounted for as a whole if the holder elects to account for the whole instrument on a fair value basis. SFAS 155 eliminates the need to bifurcate the derivative from its host, as previously required under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedge Accounting. SFAS 155 also amends SFAS 133 by establishing a requirement to evaluate interests in securitized financial assets to determine whether they are free standing derivatives or whether they contain embedded derivatives that require bifurcation. SFAS 155 is effective for all hybrid financial instruments acquired or issued by the Company on or after January 1, 2007. The Company does not anticipate any material impact to its financial condition or results of operations as a result of the adoption of SFAS 155.


In March 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 156, “Accounting for Servicing of Financial Assets”. SFAS 156 addresses the accounting for recognized servicing assets and servicing liabilities related to certain transfers of the servicer’s financial assets and for acquisitions or assumptions of obligations to service financial assets that do not relate to the financial assets of the servicer and its related parties. SFAS 156 requires that all recognized servicing assets and servicing liabilities are initially measured at fair value, and subsequently measured at either fair value or by applying an amortization method for each class of recognized servicing assets and servicing liabilities. SFAS 156 is effective in fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2006. The adoption of SFAS 156 is not expected to have a material impact on our financial statements.


In June 2006, the FASB issued FIN 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes—an interpretation of FASB No. 109. This Interpretation clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s

financial statements in accordance with FASB No. 109, “Accounting for Income Taxes”. This interpretation prescribes recognition of 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. This interpretation also provides

NOTE A—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONT’)

guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure, and transition. This interpretation is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2006. Earlier application is permitted if the entity has not yet issued interim or annual financial statements for that fiscal year. The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.


Recent Accounting Pronouncements (cont’)


In September 2006, the FASB issued Statement No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements”.  This Statement defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.  This statement applies under other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements, the Board having previously concluded in those accounting pronouncements that fair value is the relevant measurement attribute.  Accordingly, SFAS No. 157 does not require any new fair value measurements.  However, for some entities, the application of SFAS No. 157 will change current practice.  This Statement is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007, and all interim periods within those fiscal years. Earlier application is permitted if the entity has not yet issued interim or annual financial statements for that fiscal year.  Early adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations or its financial position, but the Company is evaluating the Statement to determine what impact, if any, it will have on the Company.


In September 2006, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 158, “Employers’ Accounting for Defined Benefit Pension and Other Postretirement Plans, an amendment of FASB Statements No. 87, 88, 106 and 132(R)” (“SFAS 158”). This statement requires balance sheet recognition of the funded status, which is the difference between the fair value of plan assets and the benefit obligation, of pension and postretirement benefit plans as a net asset or liability, with an offsetting adjustment to accumulate other comprehensive income in shareholders’ deficit. In addition, the measurement date, the date at which plan assets and the benefit obligation are measured, is required to be the company’s fiscal year end. The Company currently Company is currently evaluating the Statement to determine what impact, if any, it will have on the Company.


NOTE B—SUPPLEMENTAL CASH FLOW INFORMATION

Supplemental disclosures of cash flow information for the years ended December 31, 2006 and 2005 are summarized as follows:

NOTE I—SUBSEQUENT EVENTS


On October 1, 2007, the Company adopted a formal resolution to merge the Company into Ricky’s Holdings, Inc., which will be formed in order to acquire a public company and to sell a portion of the shares to the public in accordance with requirements of the various securities laws.

Princeton, NJ


I have audited the accompanying balance sheet of Ricky’s Franchise Group, LLC as of July 31, 2007, and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity and comprehensive income, and cash flows for the seven months ended July 31, 2007.  These financial statements are the responsibility of the company’s management. My responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on my audits.


I conducted my audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that I plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. I believe that my audits provide a reasonable basis for my opinion.


In my opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Ricky’s Franchise Group, LLC. as of July 31, 2007, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the seven months ended July 31, 2007 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

(The Company), a limited liability company, was formed on May 7, 2004 under the laws of the State of New Jersey.  The Company’s main activity is to sell franchises.  The franchises and location are researched for demographics and the potential owners are screened.  Upon the sale of a franchise, the franchise pays royalties to the Company as per the franchise agreement.

Earlier application is permitted if the entity has not yet issued interim or annual financial statements for that fiscal year.  The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.


Recent Accounting Pronouncements (cont’)


In September 2006, the FASB issued Statement No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements”.  This Statement defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.  This statement applies under other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements, the Board having previously concluded in those accounting pronouncements that fair value is the relevant measurement attribute.  Accordingly, SFAS No. 157 does not require any new fair value measurements.  However, for some entities, the application of SFAS No. 157 will change current practice.  This Statement is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007, and all interim periods within those fiscal years. Earlier application is permitted if the entity has not yet issued interim or annual financial statements for that fiscal year.  Early adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations or its financial position, but the Company is evaluating the Statement to determine what impact, if any, it will have on the Company.


In September 2006, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 158, “Employers’ Accounting for Defined Benefit Pension and Other Postretirement Plans, an amendment of FASB Statements No. 87, 88, 106 and 132(R)” (“SFAS 158”). This statement requires balance sheet recognition of the funded status, which is the difference between the fair value of plan assets and the benefit obligation, of pension and postretirement benefit plans as a net asset or liability, with an offsetting adjustment to accumulate other comprehensive income in shareholders’ equity. In addition, the measurement date, the date at which plan assets and the benefit obligation are measured, is required to be the company’s fiscal year end. The Company currently Company is currently evaluating the Statement to determine what impact, if any, it will have on the Company.

INDEPENDENT AUDITOR’S REPORT




Ricky’s Franchise Group, Inc.

Princeton, NJ


I have audited the accompanying balance sheet of Ricky’s Franchise Group, Inc. as of December 31, 2006, and the related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity and comprehensive income, and cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2006 and 2005.  These financial statements are the responsibility of the company’s management. My responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on my audits.


I conducted my audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that I plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. I believe that my audits provide a reasonable basis for my opinion.


In my opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Ricky’s Franchise Group, Inc. as of December 31, 2006, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2006 and 2005 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

RICKY’S FRANCHISE GROUP, INC.

NOTES TO AUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

For the Period ended December 31, 2006



NOTE A—SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES


Business Activity—Ricky’s Franchise Group, Inc. (the Company), a limited liability company, was formed on May 7, 2004 under the laws of the State of New Jersey.  The Company’s main activity is to sell franchises.  The franchises and location are researched for demographics and the potential owners are screened.  Upon the sale of a franchise, the franchise pays royalties to the Company as per the franchise agreement.


Cash and Cash Equivalents—for purposes of the Statement of Cash Flows, the Company considers liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.


Management’s Use of Estimates—The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.


Revenue RecognitionThe Company’s revenue-earning activities involve the sale of franchises.  The Company uses SFAS No. 45, Accounting for Franchise Fee Revenue as guidance for establishing its revenue recognition policies.  SFAS No. 45 requires that franchise fee revenue from individual and area franchise sales be recognized only when all material services or conditions relating to the sale have been substantially performed or satisfied by the franchisor (the Company).  


Comprehensive Income (Loss)The Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 130, “Reporting Comprehensive Income”, which establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive income and its components in the financial statements.  There were no items of comprehensive income (loss) applicable to the Company during the periods covered in the financial statements.


Advertising Costs—Advertising costs are expensed as incurred. The Company does not incur any direct-response advertising costs.  Advertising costs were $10,312 and $0 for the years ended December 31, 2006 and 2005 respectively.


Net Loss per Common Share—Statement of Financial Accounting Standard (SFAS) No. 128 requires dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) with a reconciliation of the numerator and denominator of the EPS computations.  Basic earnings per share amounts are based on the weighted average shares of common stock outstanding.  If applicable, diluted earnings per share would assume the conversion, exercise or issuance of all potential common stock instruments such as options, warrants and convertible securities, unless the effect is to reduce a loss or increase earnings per share.  Accordingly, this presentation has been adopted for the period presented.  There were no adjustments required to net loss for the period presented in the computation of diluted earnings per share.


Fair Value of Financial Instruments—The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, accounts receivable and payable approximate fair value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments.


Accounts Receivable—Accounts deemed uncollectible are written off in the year they become uncollectible.  


Impairment of Long-Lived AssetsThe Company evaluates the recoverability of its property and equipment, and other assets in accordance with Statements of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets”.  This Statement addresses financial accounting and reporting for the impairment of long-lived assets and for long-lived assets to be disposed of.  This Statement supersedes FASB Statement No. 121, Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to Be Disposed Of.  However, this Statement retains the fundamental provisions of Statement 121 for (a) recognition and measurement of the impairment of long-lived assets to be held and used and (b) measurement of long-lived assets to be disposed of by sale.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements—In May 2005, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 154 “Accounting Changes and Error Corrections – a replacement of APB Opinion No. 20 and FASB Statement No. 3.” This Statement replaces APB Opinion No. 20, “Accounting Changes”, and FASB Statement No. 3, “Reporting Accounting Changes in Interim Financial Statements” and changes the requirements for the accounting for and reporting of a change in accounting principle. This Statement applies to all voluntary changes in accounting principle.  It also applies to changes required by an accounting pronouncement in the unusual instance that the pronouncement does not include specific transition provision. When a pronouncement includes specific transition provisions, those provisions should be followed. The Company has no transactions that would be subject to SFAS 154.


In February 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 155, Accounting for Certain Hybrid Instruments-an amendment of FASB Statements No. 133 and 140.  SFAS 155 allows financial instruments that have embedded derivatives to be accounted for as a whole if the holder elects to account for the whole instrument on a fair value basis. SFAS 155 eliminates the need to bifurcate the derivative from its host, as previously required under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 133, Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedge Accounting.  SFAS 155 also amends SFAS 133 by establishing a requirement to evaluate interests in securitized financial assets to determine whether they are free standing derivatives or whether they contain embedded derivatives that require bifurcation. SFAS 155 is effective for all hybrid financial instruments acquired or issued by the Company on or after January 1, 2007. The Company does not anticipate any material impact to its financial condition or results of operations as a result of the adoption of SFAS 155.


In March 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 156, “Accounting for Servicing of Financial Assets”.  SFAS 156 addresses the accounting for recognized servicing assets and servicing liabilities related to certain transfers of the servicer’s financial assets and for acquisitions or assumptions of obligations to service financial assets that do not relate to the financial assets of the servicer and its related parties. SFAS 156 requires that all recognized servicing assets and servicing liabilities are initially measured at fair value, and subsequently measured at either fair value or by applying an amortization method for each class of recognized servicing assets and servicing liabilities. SFAS 156 is effective in fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2006. The adoption of SFAS 156 is not expected to have a material impact on our financial statements.


In June 2006, the FASB issued FIN 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes—an interpretation of FASB No. 109.  This Interpretation clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in income taxes recognized in an enterprise’s financial statements in accordance with FASB No. 109, “Accounting for Income Taxes”.  This interpretation prescribes recognition of 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.  This interpretation also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure, and transition.  This interpretation is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2006. Earlier application is permitted if the entity has not yet issued interim or annual financial statements for that fiscal year.  The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material effect on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.
