DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS


Overview


Regal One Corporation (“Regal”, or the “Company”) is a financial services company which coaches and assists biomedical companies, through our network of professionals, in listing their securities usually on the over-the-counter pink sheet market. Since inception we have been involved in a number of industries.


Regal was initially incorporated in 1959 as Electro-Mechanical Services Inc., in the state of Florida. In 1998 we changed our name to Regal One Corporation. On March 7, 2005, our Board of Directors determined it was in our shareholders best interest to change the focus of the company's operation to providing financial services through our network of advisors and professionals.


Typically these services are provided to early stage biomedical companies who can benefit from our managerial skills, network of professional consultants and other partners.


During our clients' early stage of development, they typically have limited resources and may compensate us for our services in capital stock. Accordingly, although our primary business is to provide consulting services and not to be engaged in the business of investing, reinvesting, owning, holding or trading in securities, we may nonetheless be considered an investment company as that term is defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940 (1940 Act). In order to lessen the regulatory restrictions associated with the requirements of the 1940 Act, on June 16, 2005 we elected to be treated as a Business Development Company (BDC) in accordance with sections 55 through 65 of the 1940 Act.


Pursuant to the requirements of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, the Board of Directors is responsible for determining in good faith the fair value of the securities and assets held by the Company. The Investment Committee of the Board of Directors bases its determination on, among other things, applicable quantitative and qualitative factors. These factors may include, but are not limited to, the type of securities, the nature of the business of the portfolio company, the marketability of the valuation of securities of publicly traded companies in the same or similar industries, current financial conditions and operating results of the portfolio company, sales and earnings growth of the portfolio company, operating revenues of the portfolio company, competitive conditions, and current and prospective conditions in the overall stock market. Without a readily recognized market value, the estimated value of some portfolio securities may differ significantly from the values that would be placed on the portfolio should there be a ready market for such equity securities currently in existence.


Where the stock market has established a trading history and sufficient volume to provide a fair market value price for the securities held by our Company as saleable current assets, we will value those securities at the closing price per share as of the last day of the fiscal period being reported.


Strategy


We intend to focus our efforts on assisting private biomedical companies with distinctive IP and well-defined, near-term applications that address significant and quantifiable markets and that can benefit from our network of business professionals. Our Investment Committee has adopted a charter wherein these criteria will be weighed against other criteria including:


     Strategic fit,

     Management ability, and

     Incremental value that we can bring to the potential client.


The potential client must also be willing to comply with the Company's requirement as a BDC to offer significant managerial oversight and guidance, including the right of the Company to a seat on the client's board of directors.




To date we have secured our clients through word of mouth or industry referrals from lawyers, accountants and other professionals. In looking at prospective clients, we do not focus on any particular geographic region and would consider clients globally.


Portfolio Investments


Our investment portfolio is summarized as follows:

                                                           Carrying Value

(1) At December 31, 2012, we held 280,000 shares of Neuralstem, Inc. common stock and warrants to purchase an additional 1,000,000 shares of common stock at a price of $5.00 per share.


(2) The Company has an investment in the common stock of Rampart Detection Systems Ltd.


Employees


We have one part-time employee. We expect to use consultants, attorneys, and accountants as necessary and we do not anticipate a need to engage any additional full-time employees as long as business needs are being identified and evaluated. The need for employees and their availability will be addressed in connection with a decision concerning whether or not to acquire or participate in a specific business venture.


Compliance with Business Development Company Reporting Requirements

 

The Board of Directors of the Company, comprising a majority of Independent Directors, adopted in March 2006 a number of resolutions, codes and charters to complete compliance with BDC operating requirements prior to reporting as a BDC. These include establishing Board committees for Audit, Nominating, Compensation, Investment, and Corporate Governance, and adopting a Code of Ethics, an Audit Committee Charter and an Investment Committee Charter.


Code of Ethics:


The Code of Ethics in general prohibits any officer, director or advisory person (collectively, "Access Person") of the Company from acquiring any interest in any security which the Company (i) is considering a purchase or sale thereof,  (ii) is being purchased or sold by the Company, or (iii) is being sold short by the Company.  The Access Person is required to advise the Company in writing of his or her acquisition or sale of any such security. The Company's Code of Ethics is posted on our website at http://www.regal1.com/.



Audit Committee:


The primary responsibility of the Audit Committee is to oversee the Company's financial reporting process on behalf of the Company's Board of Directors and report the result of its activities to the Board. Such responsibilities shall include but not be limited to the selection, and if necessary, the replacement of the Company's independent registered public accounting firm; the review and discussion with such independent registered public accounting firm and the Company's internal audit department of (i) the overall scope and plans for the audit, (ii) the adequacy and effectiveness of the accounting and financial controls, including the Company's system to monitor and manage business risks, and legal and ethical programs, and (iii) the results of the annual audit, including the financial statements to be included in the Company's annual report on Form 10-K.


The Company's Audit Committee and Compensation Committee are comprised of one director. We anticipate that additional board members will be admitted and will augment the current audit committee. In January 2009, Mr. Bernard L. Brodkorb was accepted as a Regal Board Member and Director. Mr. Brodkorb is a licensed Certified Public Accountant (CPA) who is a qualified financial expert and will be actively participating on the Audit Committee.


Investment Committee: The Investment Committee shall have oversight responsibility with respect to reviewing and overseeing the Company's contemplated investments and portfolio companies on behalf of the Board and shall report the results of their activities to the Board.  Such Investment Committee shall (i) have the ultimate authority for and responsibility to evaluate and recommend investments, and (ii) review and discuss with management (a) the performance of portfolio companies, (b) the diversity and risk of the Company's investment portfolio, and, where appropriate, make recommendations respecting the role, divestiture or addition of portfolio investments and (c) all solicited and unsolicited offers to purchase portfolio company positions.


Compliance with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002


The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 imposes a wide variety of new regulatory requirements on publicly held companies and their insiders.  Many of these requirements will affect us in the following ways:  For example:


Our chief executive officer and chief financial officer must certify the accuracy of the financial statements contained in our periodic reports;


Our periodic reports must disclose our conclusions about the effectiveness of our controls and procedures and whether there were significant changes in our internal controls or in other factors that could significantly affect these controls subsequent to the date of their evaluation, including any corrective actions with regard to significant deficiencies and material weaknesses.


We are required to review our current policies and procedures to determine whether we comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the new regulations promulgated within the regulations stated in the act.


We will continue to monitor our compliance with all future regulations that are adopted or required under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and will take actions necessary to ensure we are in compliance therewith.



Item 1A. RISK FACTORS


The purchase of shares of capital stock of the Company involves many risks. A prospective investor should carefully consider the following factors before making a decision to purchase any such shares:

 

The Company Has Historically Lost Money and Losses May Continue in the Future:


Except for 2009 when the Company booked a net operating gain of $514,737 including an unrealized appreciation in value of our stock option investment of $805,900, the Company has historically lost money. For the year ended December 31, 2012 the Company had a net investment loss of $122,173 excluding our realized and unrealized gain from investments. Accordingly, we may experience significant liquidity and cash flow problems if we are not able to raise additional capital as needed on acceptable terms.  No assurances can be given we will be successful in reaching or maintaining profitable operations and future losses are likely to occur.


The Company has incurred losses since its inception and, as a result, has an accumulated deficit of $8,421,673 at December 31, 2012. The net investment loss was $122,173 for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2012 compared to a net investment loss of $127,996 for the same period last year. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.


The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern depends upon obtaining sufficient financing to maintain adequate liquidity until such time as operations produce positive cash flow. However, there can be no assurance these actions will be successful.


The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which assumes continuity of operations and realization of assets and liabilities in the ordinary course of business. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result if the Company was forced to discontinue its operations.

 

The Company's cash expenses are very large relative to its cash flow which requires the Company continually to sell shares from its investments. This could result in substantial dilution to our shareholders equity or our ability to continue in operations should additional capital not be raised:


For years ended December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 the Company had no investment income and had operating expenses of $122,173 and $127,996 respectively. Consequently, the Company was required to sell shares of the Company's inventory of investment common stock to raise the cash necessary to pay ongoing expenses. Net proceeds from the sale of securities in 2012 amounted to $76,639. This practice is likely to continue for the foreseeable future and could lead to continuing dilution in net asset value for the Company's stockholders. Moreover, there is no assurance the Company will be able to find investors willing to purchase Company shares at a price and on terms acceptable to the Company, in which case, the Company could further deplete its cash resources.






Regulations governing operations of a business development company will affect the Company's ability to raise, and the way in which the Company raises additional capital. This could result in the Company not being able to raise additional capital and accordingly cease operations:


Under the provisions of the 1940 Act, the Company is permitted, as a business development company, to issue senior securities only in amounts such that asset coverage, as defined in the 1940 Act, equals at least 200% after each issuance of senior securities. If the value of portfolio assets declines, the Company may be unable to satisfy this test. If that happens, the Company may be required to sell a portion of its investments and, depending on the nature of the Company's leverage, repay a portion of its indebtedness at a time when such sales may be disadvantageous and result in unfavorable prices. Applicable law requires that business development companies may invest 70% of its assets only in privately held U.S. companies, small, publicly traded U.S. companies, certain high-quality debt, and cash. The Company is not generally able to issue and sell common stock at a price below net asset value per share. The Company may, however, sell common stock, or warrants, options or rights to acquire common stock, at prices below the current net asset value of the common stock if the Board of Directors determines that such sale is in the best interests of the Company and its stockholders approve such sale. In any such case, the price at which the Company's securities are to be issued and sold may not be less than a price which, in the determination of the Board of Directors, closely approximates the market value of such securities (less any distributing commission or discount)


The success of the Company will depend in part on its size, and in part on management's ability to make successful investments:


If the Company is unable to select profitable investments, the Company will not achieve its objectives. Moreover, if the size of the Company remains small, operating expenses will be higher as a percentage of invested capital than would otherwise be the case, which increases the risk of loss (and reduces the chance for gain) for investors.

 

The Company's investment activities are inherently risky:


The Company's investment activities involve a significant degree of risk. The performance of any investment is subject to numerous factors which are neither within the control of nor predictable by the Company. Such factors include a wide range of economic, political, competitive and other conditions which may affect investments in general or specific industries or companies.


The Company's equity investments may lose all or part of their value, causing the Company to lose all or part of its investment in those companies:


The equity interests in which the Company invests may not appreciate in value and may decline in value. Accordingly, the Company may not be able to realize gains from its investments and any gains realized on the disposition of any equity interests may not be sufficient to offset any losses experienced. Moreover, the Company's primary objective is to invest in early stage companies, the products or services of which will frequently not have demonstrated market acceptance. Many portfolio companies lack depth of management and have limited financial resources. All of these factors make investments in the Company's portfolio companies particularly risky.




The Company's common stock is trading at a substantial discount to net asset value:


The following summarizes the Company's approximate net asset value per common share and corresponding stock price:


  

As of December 31,         2012

 2011      2010     2009      2008      


  Net Asset Value         $0.09     $0.10     $0.41    $0.45     $0.31     

 

  Stock Price*             0.07      0.06      0.06     0.03      0.11      

 

*Stock Price is the closing price as of the last trading day in December of each corresponding year.

 

At present the Company is trading at a discount to Net Asset Value. In 2005, the Company's common stock traded at a substantial premium to its net asset value. Moreover, as the Company utilizes and monetizes its investment assets for its continuing operating needs the Net Asset Value may decrease, potentially affecting the price of the Company's common stock.

 

Our common stock is traded on the "Over-the-Counter Pink Sheet" market, which may make it more difficult for investors to resell their shares due to suitability requirements:


Our common stock is currently traded on the Over the Counter Pink Sheets under the symbol (RONE) where we expect it to remain in the foreseeable future. Broker-dealers often decline to trade in OTC Pink Sheet stocks given the markets for such securities are often limited, the stocks are more volatile, and the risk to investors is greater. These factors may reduce the potential market for our common stock by reducing the number of potential investors. This may make it more difficult for investors in our common stock to sell shares to third parties or to otherwise dispose of their shares. This could cause our stock price to decline.


We could fail to retain or attract key personnel who are required in order for us to fully carry out our business plan:


The Company's operations and ability to implement its business plan are dependent upon the efforts of its key personnel, the loss of the services of which could have a material adverse effect on the Company. The Company will likely be required to hire additional personnel to implement its business plan. Qualified employees and consultants are in great demand and are likely to remain a limited resource for the foreseeable future. Competition for skilled, creative and technical talent is intense. There can be no assurance the Company will be successful in attracting and retaining such personnel. Any failure by the Company to retain the services of existing employees and consultants or to hire new employees when necessary could have a material adverse effect upon the Company's business, financial condition and results of operations. Our future success depends in significant part on the continued services of Charles J. Newman, our Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and CFO. We have no employment agreement with or company life insurance on Mr. Newman.


The Company operates in a highly competitive market:


The Company faces competition from a number of sources, many of which have longer operating histories, and significantly greater financial, management, marketing and other resources than the Company. The Company's ability to generate new portfolio clients depends to a significant degree on its reputation among potential clients and partners, and its ability to reach acceptable investment terms with potential clients relative to competitive alternatives. In the event that the reputation of the Company is adversely impacted, or that potential portfolio clients perceive competitive alternatives to be superior, the business, financial condition and operating results of the Company could be adversely affected.



Our officers and directors have the ability to exercise significant influence over matters submitted for stockholder approval and their interests may differ from other stockholders:


Our executive officers and directors have the ability to appoint a majority to the Board of Directors. Accordingly, our directors and executive officers, whether acting alone or together, may have significant influence in determining the outcome of any corporate transaction or other matter submitted to our Board for approval, including issuing common and preferred stock, appointing officers, which could have a material impact on mergers, acquisitions, consolidations and the sale of all or substantially all of our assets, and the power to prevent or cause a change in control. The interests of these board members may differ from the interests of the other stockholders.


Our share ownership is concentrated:


The Company's officers, directors and principal stockholders, together with their affiliates, beneficially own approximately 70% of the Company's voting shares. As a result, these stockholders, if they act together, will exert significant influence over all matters requiring stockholder approval, including the election and removal of directors, any merger, consolidation or sale of all or substantially all of the assets, as well as any charter amendment and other matters requiring stockholder approval. In addition, these stockholders may dictate the day to day management of the business. This concentration of ownership may delay or prevent a change in control and may have a negative impact on the market price of the Company's common stock by discouraging third party investors. In addition, the interests of these stockholders may not always coincide with the interests of the Company's other stockholders.


We may change our investment policies without further shareholder approval:


Although we are limited by the Investment Company Act of 1940 with respect to the percentage of our assets that must be invested in qualified investment companies, we are not limited with respect to the minimum standard that any investment company must meet, neither are we limited to the industries in which those investment companies must operate. We may make investments without shareholder approval and such investments may deviate significantly from our historic operations. Any change in our investment policy or selection of investments could adversely affect our stock price, liquidity, and the ability of our shareholders to sell their stock.


The Company's common stock may be subject to the penny stock rules which might make it harder for stockholders to sell:


As a result of our stock price, our shares are subject to the penny stock rules. Because a "penny stock" is, generally speaking, one selling for less than $5.00 per share, the Company's common stock may be subject to the foregoing rules. The application of the penny stock rules may affect stockholders' ability to sell their shares because some broker-dealers may not be willing to make a market in the Company's common stock because of the burdens imposed upon them by the penny stock rules which include but are not limited to:


     Section 15(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and SEC Rules 15g-1 through 15g-6, which impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell Company securities to persons other than established customers and accredited investors.


     Rule 15g-2 declares unlawful any broker-dealer transactions in penny stocks unless the broker-dealer has first provided to the customer a standardized disclosure document.


     Rule 15g-3 provides that it is unlawful for a broker-dealer to engage in a penny stock transaction unless the broker-dealer first discloses and subsequently confirms to the customer the current quotation prices or similar market information concerning the penny stock in question.

 

     Rule 15g-4 prohibits broker-dealers from completing penny stock transactions for a customer unless the broker-dealer first discloses to the customer the amount of compensation or other remuneration received as a result of the penny stock transaction.

 

     Rule 15g-5 requires that a broker-dealer executing a penny stock transaction, other than one exempt under Rule 15g-1, disclose to its customer, at the time of or prior to the transaction, information about the sales persons compensation.


Potential shareholders of the Company should also be aware that, according to SEC Release No. 34-29093, the market for penny stocks has suffered in recent years from patterns of fraud and abuse. Such patterns include (i) control of the market for the security by one or a few broker-dealers that are often related to the promoter or issuer; (ii) manipulation of prices through prearranged matching of purchases and sales and false and misleading press releases; (iii) "boiler room" practices involving high-pressure sales tactics and unrealistic price projections by inexperienced sales persons; (iv) excessive and undisclosed bid-ask differential and markups by selling broker-dealers; and (v) the wholesale dumping of the same securities by promoters and broker dealers after prices have been manipulated to a desired level, along with the resulting inevitable collapse of those prices and with consequent investor losses.


Limited regulatory oversight may require potential investors to fend for themselves:


The Company has elected to be treated as a business development company under the 1940 Act which makes the Company exempt from some provisions of that statute. The Company is not registered as a broker-dealer or investment advisor because the nature of its proposed activities does not require it to do so; moreover it is not registered as a commodity pool operator under the Commodity Exchange Act, based on its intention not to trade commodities or financial futures. However, the Company is a reporting company under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. As a result of this limited regulatory oversight, the Company is not subject to certain operating limitations, capital requirements, or reporting obligations that might otherwise apply and investors may be left to fend for themselves.

 

The Company's concentration of portfolio company securities:


The Company will attempt to hold the securities of several different portfolio companies. However, a significant amount of the Company's holdings could be concentrated in the securities of only a few companies. This risk is particularly acute during this time period of early Company's operations, which could result in significant concentration with respect to a particular issuer or industry. The concentration of the Company's portfolio in any one issuer or industry would subject the Company to a greater degree of risk with respect to the failure of one or a few issuers or with respect to economic downturns in such industry than would be the case with a more diversified portfolio. At December 31, 2012, 91% of the Company's asset value resulted from a single portfolio holding.

 

The unlikelihood of cash distributions:


Although the Company has the corporate power to make cash distributions, such distributions are not among the Company's objectives. Consequently, management does not expect to make any cash distributions in the immediate future.


Because many of the Company's portfolio securities will be recorded at values as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors, the prices at which the Company is able to dispose of these holdings may differ from their respective recorded values:


The Company values its portfolio securities at fair value as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors and market prices to the extent necessary to reflect significant events affecting the value of such securities. The Board of Directors may retain an independent valuation firm to aid it on a selective basis in making fair value determinations. The types of factors that may be considered in fair value pricing of an investment include the markets in which the portfolio company does business, comparison of the portfolio company to (other) publicly traded companies, discounted cash flow of the portfolio company, and other relevant factors.

    

Because such valuations are inherently uncertain, they may fluctuate during short periods of time, and may be based on estimates. Determinations of fair value may differ materially from the values that would have been used if a ready market for these securities existed. As a result, the Company may not be able to dispose of its holdings at a price equal to or greater than the determined fair value. Net asset value could be adversely affected if the determination regarding the fair value of Company investments is materially higher than the values ultimately realized upon the disposal of such securities.

 


The lack of liquidity in the Company's portfolio securities would probably prevent the Company from disposing of them at opportune times and prices, which may cause a loss and/or reduce again:


The Company will frequently hold securities in privately held companies. Some of these securities will be subject to legal and other restrictions on resale or will otherwise be less liquid than publicly traded securities. The illiquidity of such investments may make it difficult to sell such investments at advantageous times and prices or in a timely manner. In addition, if the Company is required to liquidate all or a portion of its portfolio quickly, it may realize significantly less than the values recorded for such investments. The Company may also face other restrictions on its ability to liquidate an investment in a portfolio company to the extent that the Company has material non-public information regarding such portfolio company. If the Company is unable to sell its assets at opportune times, it might suffer a loss and/or reduce a gain. Restrictions on resale and limited liquidity are both factors the Board will consider in determining fair value of portfolio securities. Moreover, even holdings in publicly-traded securities are likely to be relatively illiquid because the market for companies of the type in which the Company invests tend to be thin and usually cannot accommodate large volume trades.

 

Holding securities of privately held companies may be riskier than holding securities of publicly traded companies due to the lack of available public information:


The Company may hold securities in privately-held companies subject to higher risk than holdings in publicly traded companies. Generally, little public information exists about privately held companies, and the Company will be required to rely on the ability of management to obtain adequate information to evaluate the potential risks and returns involved in investing in these companies. If the Company is unable to uncover all material information about these companies, it may not make a fully informed investment decision, and it may lose some or all of the money it invests in these companies. These factors could subject the Company to greater risk than holding securities in publicly traded companies and negatively affect investment returns.


The market values of publicly traded portfolio companies are likely to be extremely volatile:


Our clients tend to be early stage biotech companies. As a result, their operations and futures are highly dependent on their ability to develop products and successfully bring them to the marketplace. Unlike more seasoned companies with historical financial projections that can be used to evaluate performance, our clients typically do not possess such historical figures. Accordingly, the publically traded shares of our portfolio companies will generally be thinly traded and may be subject to volatile swings in value.

Item 5. MARKET FOR REGISTRANT'S COMMON EQUITY AND RELATED STOCKHOLDERS MATTERS AND ISSUER PURCHASES OF EQUITY SECURITIES


Market Information  


Our common stock is currently traded on the Over the Counter Pink Sheets under the symbol RONE where we expect it to remain in the foreseeable future. Broker-dealers often decline to trade in OTC Pink Sheet stocks given the markets for such securities are often limited, the stocks are more volatile, and the risk to investors is greater. These factors may reduce the potential market for our common stock by reducing the number of potential investors. This may make it more difficult for investors in our common stock to sell shares to third parties or to otherwise dispose of their shares. This could cause our stock price to decline.

Notwithstanding the forgoing, our common stock is sporadically and thinly trading. Accordingly, although there appears to be quotation information, the Company does not believe that there exists an established public market for our securities. Further, there can be no assurance the current market for the Company's common stock will be sustained or grow in the future.

 

Holders of record


As of March 15, 2013, there were:

     621 shareholders of our common stock; and

     5 shareholders of our preferred stock.


The Company feels the actual number of common stock holders may be significantly higher as 2,386,067 common shares are held in street name which is 65.7% of the total common shares outstanding.

Item 7. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS


The following information should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this Form 10-K.


Overview


We are a financial services company which coaches and assists biomedical companies through the use of our network of professionals in listing their securities on over the counter or national exchanges. Typically these services are provided to early stage biomedical companies who can benefit from our network of professionals and other partners. As a result of our clients' early stage of development, they typically have limited resources and compensate us for our services in capital stock. Accordingly, although our primary business is to provide consulting services and not to be engaged, directly or through wholly-owned subsidiaries, in the business of investing, reinvesting, owning, holding or trading in securities, we may nonetheless be considered an investment company as that term is defined in the Investment Company Act of 1940 (1940 Act). In order to lessen the regulatory restrictions associated with the requirements of the 1940 Act, on June 16, 2005 we elected to be treated as a Business Development Company (BDC) in accordance with sections 55 through 65 of the 1940 Act. Results reported prior to 2005 are based on prior operations.


Managerial Assistance


As a business development company we will offer and provide upon request managerial assistance to certain of our portfolio companies.  As defined under the 1940 Act, managerial assistance means providing "significant guidance and counsel concerning the management, operations, or business objectives and policies of a portfolio company."  


Financial Condition Overview


The Company's total assets were $467,401 and its net assets were $317,502 at December 31, 2012, compared to $460,662 and $369,642 at December 31, 2011. Net decrease in net assets resulting from operations changed during the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 to a decrease of $52,140 from a decrease of $1,131,512 in 2011. The decrease was mainly attributable to the unrealized losses in our stock investment and warrants during 2011. Net investment loss (total operating expenses) decreased by $5,823 compared to 2011.


During 2012, the Company realized a gain of $76,639 on the sale of investment securities and also had unrealized depreciation in its investment portfolio of $30,006. The Company sold 70,500 shares of portfolio stock at an investment cost of $3,026. The Company also booked an unrealized gain in investments in warrants of $23,400 due to change in the fair value of the stock warrants.







                                      




During 2012 the Company increased liabilities by approximately $58,900 which was primarily a result of an increase in a note payable with a related party.


The Company's unrealized appreciation (depreciation) varies significantly from period to period as a result of the wide fluctuations in value of the Company's portfolio securities. Our financial condition is dependent on a number of factors including the ability of each portfolio company to effectuate its respective strategies with the Company's help. These businesses are frequently thinly capitalized, unproven, small companies that may lack management depth, and may be dependent on new or commercially unproven technologies, and may have no operating history.


The company has incurred losses since its inception and, as a result, has an accumulated deficit of $8,421,673 at December 31, 2012. The net investment loss was $122,173 for the year ended December 31, 2012 compared to a net investment loss of $127,996 for the same period last year. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.


The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern depends upon obtaining sufficient financing to maintain adequate liquidity until such time as operations produce positive cash flow. However, there can be no assurance these actions will be successful.


The accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which assumes continuity of operations and realization of assets and liabilities in the ordinary course of business. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result if the Company was forced to discontinue its operations.



Result of Operations for the twelve month periods ending December 31, 2012 and 2011


Investment Income


We anticipate generating revenue in the form of capital gains or losses on equity securities that we acquire in portfolio companies and subsequently sell. Potentially, we also anticipate receiving dividend income on any common or preferred stock that we own should a dividend be declared. The Company did not have any investment income during 2012 or 2011.


Net realized and unrealized gain (loss) on investments, net for the twelve months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 was a gain of $70,033 and a loss of $1,003,516, respectively. The significant loss during 2011 was primarily related to the decrease in the share price of Neuralstem, Inc.


Operating Expenses


Our operating expenses consist mostly of fees paid to outside attorneys, consultants, and accountants in connection with the advisory services we provide our clients and to a lesser extent for general overhead.


For the year ended December 31, 2012, operating expenses were $122,173 compared to $127,996 for the year ended December 31, 2011. The decrease of $5,823 for the year ended December 31, 2012 as compared to the comparable period of 2011 is primarily attributable to decreases in legal expenses. The Company plans to decrease its operational expenses in 2013 if no more companies are added to our portfolio.



Net Investment Income/(Loss)


For the twelve months ending December 31, 2012, our net investment loss amounted to $122,173. This compares to a loss of $127,996 for the year ended December 31, 2011. The 2012 operating expenses consisted primarily of legal fees, professional services and consulting fees.


The Company anticipates our net investment loss will increase upon the addition of more companies to our portfolio, and if we can hold onto the securities of our portfolio companies for long term capital growth. Currently we have been selling the securities in our investment portfolio to finance our operations.


Liquidity and Capital Resources


At December 31, 2012, we had $467,401 in assets consisting of: $19,121 in cash, $22,708 in prepaid insurance, and $425,572 in investments.


For the twelve month period ended December 31, 2012, we satisfied our working capital needs from cash on hand at the beginning of the period and the net proceeds from the sale of marketable securities in the amount of $79,309. As of December 31, 2012, the Company's net asset value (Equity) was $317,502.


From inception, the Company has relied on the infusion of capital through capital share transactions and loans. The Company plans to either: (i) dispose of its current portfolio securities to meet operational needs; or (ii) borrow against such securities via a traditional margin account or other such credit facility. Any such dispositions may have to be made at inopportune times and there is no assurance that, in light of the lack of liquidity in such shares, they could be sold at all, or if sold, could bring values approximating the estimates of fair value set forth in the Company financial statements. Additionally, in the event the Company enters into a margin agreement with regard to any portfolio securities, a decrease in their market value may result in a liquidation of such securities which could greatly depress the value of such securities in the market.


Because our revenues, if generated, tend to be in the form of portfolio securities, such revenues are not of a type capable of being used to satisfy the Company's ongoing monthly expenses. Consequently, for us to be able to avoid having to defer expenses or sell portfolio companies' securities to raise cash to pay operating expenses, we are constantly seeking to secure adequate funding under acceptable terms. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to do so. Further, if the Company is unable to secure adequate funding under acceptable terms, there is substantial doubt that the Company can continue as a going concern.

Significant Accounting Estimates and Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our financial statements are prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"), which requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Critical accounting policies are those that require the application of management's most difficult, subjective, or complex judgments, often because of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain and that may change in subsequent periods. In preparing the financial statements, management has made estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. In preparing the financial statements, management has utilized available information, including our past history, industry standards and the current economic environment, among other factors, in forming its estimates and judgments, giving due consideration to materiality. Actual results may differ from these estimates. In addition, other companies may utilize different estimates, which may impact the comparability of our results of operations to those of companies in similar businesses. As our expected operating plans occur we will describe additional critical accounting policies in the notes to our financial statements in addition to those discussed below.


Set forth below is a summary of the significant accounting estimates and critical accounting policies that management believes are important to the preparation of our financial statements. Certain of our accounting estimates are particularly important for an understanding of our financial position and results of operations and require the application of significant judgment by our management. As a result, these estimates are subject to a degree of uncertainty. These significant accounting estimates include:


Valuation of Portfolio Investments


At December 31, 2012, the Company owned 280,000 common shares of Neuralstem, Inc. held as an investment. These shares had a valuation of $305,200 based on the closing market price of the stock. 70,500 shares were sold in 2012 to finance Company operations. 217,500 of these shares are not restricted and are freely tradable with 62,500 shares being restricted as they are held as collateral for a note payable to a related party.


Regal One also has one ten year warrant for 1,000,000 common shares of Neuralstem at an exercise price of $5 per share which is significantly above the present fair market value of Neuralstem shares. There is currently no market for Neuralstem stock options. The price of the publicly traded common stock is used as a significant input in the valuation process.


As of December 31, 2012, using a Black-Scholes Option Pricing model, a $118,800 value has been assigned to this warrant including a 10% discount assigned by management due to low trading volume of Neuralstem common stock. Regal recorded a $23,400 unrealized gain on the investment in 2012 due to increases in the fair value as determined by the Black-Scholes model.


The Board of Directors is responsible for determining in good faith the fair value of the securities and assets held by the Company. The Investment Committee of the Board of Directors has adopted provisions for valuation of the portfolio as described in Note 1 under Fair Value Accounting through ASC 820. The Investment Committee bases its determination on, among other things, applicable quantitative and qualitative factors. These factors may include, but are not limited to, the type of securities, the nature of the business of the portfolio company, the marketability of and the valuation of securities of publicly traded companies in the same or similar industries, current financial conditions and operating results of the portfolio company, sales and earnings growth of the portfolio company, operating revenues of the portfolio company, competitive conditions, and current and prospective conditions in the overall stock market. Without a readily recognized market value, the estimated value of some portfolio securities may differ significantly from the values that would be placed on the portfolio if there was a ready market for such equity securities.



Item 7A. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK


Our business activities contain high elements of risk. The Company considers a principal type of market risk to be a valuation risk. All assets are valued at fair value as determined in good faith by or under the direction of the Board of Directors (which is based, in part, on quoted market prices of similar investments).


Market prices of common equity securities in general, are subject to fluctuations which could cause the amount to be realized upon sale to differ significantly from the current reported value.  The fluctuations may result from perceived changes in the underlying economic characteristics of the Company's portfolio companies, the relative prices of alternative investments, general market conditions and supply and demand imbalances for a particular security.

 

Neither the Company's investments nor an investment in the Company is intended to constitute a balanced investment program. The Company will be subject to exposure in the public-market pricing and the risks inherent therein. For a further discussion of the risk associated with the Company, please refer to the section of this annual report entitled "Risk Factors".

 

Item 8. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AND SUPPLEMENTARY DATA


The financial statements for Regal One Corporation are annexed in PART IV of this report.

Item 9. CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE


Effective February 5, 2013, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Regal One Corporation (“Regal” or the “Registrant” or the “Issuer”) engaged the Minneapolis, MN firm of Boulay, Heutmaker, Zibell and Co. P.L.L.P as the Independent Registered Public Accountant to audit Regal One Corporation’s financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2012. During the Registrant’s two most recent fiscal years and any subsequent interim period, Regal One Corporation did not consult with Boulay, Heutmaker, Zibell and Co. P.L.L.P. or any of its members about the application of accounting principles to any specified transaction or any other matter.  The decision to change accountants was approved by the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Regal consisting of Charles J. Newman (Chairman), Bernard L. Brodkorb, and Malcom R. Currie.


The engagement effective February 5, 2013 of Boulay, Heutmaker, Zibell and Co. P.L.L.P. as the new Independent Registered Public Accountant for Regal Once Corporation necessarily results in the termination or dismissal of the principal accountant which audited Regal One Corporation’s financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011, Seale and Beers, CPA’s, Las Vegas, NV.


During the Registrant’s two most recent years ended December 31, 2011 and 2012 and the subsequent interim periods, there were no disagreements between the Registrant and Seale and Beers, CPA’s concerning any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure or auditing scope or procedure which disagreements, if not resolved to Seale and Beers, CPA’s satisfaction would have caused them to make a reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in connection with their reports; there were no reportable events as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v)of Regulation S-K.


Seale and Beers, CPA’s report dated April 16, 2012 did not contain any adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion, but did include an emphasis-of- matter paragraph describing the conditions that raised substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.


Regal has provided Seale and Beers, CPA’s with a copy of the foregoing disclosures and requested from Seale and Beers, CPA’s a letter addressed to the Commission stating whether Seale and Beers, CPA’s agrees with the statements made by Regal One Corporation in response to Item 304 (a) of Regulation S-K and, if not, stating the respects in which it does not agree.


Item 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES


(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures


The Company's management, under the direction, supervision, and involvement of the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, has carried out an evaluation, as of the end of the period covered by this report, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act") of the Company. Based on this evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer has concluded that disclosure controls and procedures in place at the Company are not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the Company's Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to the Company's management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure based closely on the definition of "disclosure controls and procedures" in Rule 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act.


(b) Management's Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting.


The Company's management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Under the direction, supervision and participation of the Company's management, including our Chief Executive Officer and principal financial officers, the Company's management conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of its internal control over financial reporting based on the framework in Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission ("COSO-Framework"). Based on the results of this evaluation under the COSO Framework, management has concluded that its internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of December 31, 2012.


The Company has not established adequate financial reporting monitoring activities to mitigate the risk of management override. Specifically, there is a lack of segregation of duties as there is only one officer/employee overseeing the finance department. Although the controls are not effective, this material weakness did not result in any material misstatements in our financial statements.


This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company's registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management's report was not subject to attestation by the Company's registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules for non-accelerated filers by the Securities and Exchange Commission permitting the company to provide only management's report in this annual report.


Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting


There has been no change in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the period covered by this Annual Report on Form 10-K that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.


Item 9B. OTHER INFORMATION


Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers


No stock options were issued or stock grants granted during fiscal year 2012. Regal's Chief Executive Officer did not receive any salary or other compensation other than direct expense reimbursements.


Departure of Directors or Certain Officers


None in 2012.

Item 11. EXECUTIVE AND DIRECTOR COMPENSATION


For the year ended December 31, 2012 there was no executive or director compensation. One director received consulting fees for work performed not related to being a director.



INDEMNIFICATION


As permitted by the provisions of the General Corporation Law of the State of Florida, the Company has the power to indemnify any officer or director who was or is a party to or threatens to become a party to any threatened, pending or completed action, suit or proceeding whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative, by reason of the fact that the officer or director of the corporation acted in good faith and in a manner reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interest of the Company.  Any such person may be indemnified against expenses, including attorneys' fees, judgments, fines and settlements in defense of any action, suit or proceeding. The Company maintains directors and officers liability insurance which provides protection and coverage for directors and officers.


SECTION 16(a) BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP REPORTING COMPLIANCE


Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 requires our executive officers, directors, and persons who own more than ten percent (10%) of a registered class of our equity securities to file an initial report of ownership on Form 3 and changes in ownership on Form 4 or 5 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). Such officers, directors and ten percent (10%) shareholders are also required by the SEC rules to furnish us with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file.


In 2012 Charles J. Newman filed a periodic Statement of Changes in Beneficial Ownership on Form 4. Based solely on review of copies of such forms received by the Company, or written representations from certain reporting persons that no Forms 5 were required, we believe its executive officers, directors and ten percent (10%) shareholders complied with all Section 16(a) filing requirements applicable to them through the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.

Item 13. TRANSACTIONS AND BUSINESS RELATIONSHIPS WITH MANAGEMENT AND PRINCIPAL SHAREHOLDERS


The Board has adopted a policy relating to the approval of transactions with related persons that are required to be disclosed in statements by SEC regulations, which are commonly referred to as "Related Person Transactions." A "related person" is defined under the applicable SEC regulation and includes our directors, executive officers and 5% or more beneficial owners of our common stock. The Board administers the procedures with regards to related person transactions. Approval of a related person transaction requires the affirmative vote of the majority of disinterested directors. In approving any related person transaction, the disinterested directors must determine that the transaction is fair and reasonable to the Company.


Summarized below are certain transactions and business relationships between Regal One Corporation and persons who are or were an executive officer, director or holder of more than five percent of any class of our securities during the last two fiscal years:


For the year ended December 31, 2012, Mr. Bernard L. Brodkorb who is a Director of Regal received $58,650 in fee compensation for providing accounting and financial reporting services not related to his duties as a Director of Regal One Corporation.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM


To the Board of Directors and Shareholders of Regal One Corporation.

St. Paul, Minnesota


We have audited the accompanying balance sheet, including the schedule of investments, of Regal One Corporation (a Florida Corporation)(the “Company”) as of December 31, 2012, and the related statements of changes in net assets, operations, cash flows and financial highlights for the year ended December 31, 2012. The financial statements of Regal One Corporation as of and for the year ended December 31, 2011, were audited by other auditors whose report dated April 10, 2012, included an emphasis-of-matter paragraph describing conditions that raised substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Regal One Corporation’s management is responsible for these financial statements and financial highlights. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements and financial highlights based on our audit.


We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provided a reasonable basis for our opinion.


In our opinion, the financial statements and financial highlights referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Regal One Corporation as of December 31, 2012, and the results of its operations, its cash flows, and its financial highlights for the year ended December 31, 2012 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Company has incurred recurring losses and recurring negative cash flows from operating activities, and has an accumulated deficit which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans concerning these matters are also described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTE 1 - NATURE OF OPERATIONS AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES


Business


Regal One Corporation (the "Company" or "Regal One"), located in Scottsdale, Arizona, is a Florida corporation initially incorporated in 1959 as Electro-Mechanical Services Inc., in the state of Florida. Since inception we have been involved in a number of industries. In 1998 we changed our name to Regal One Corporation.


On March 7, 2005, our board of directors determined that it was in our shareholders best interest to change the focus of the company's operation to that of providing financial services through our network of advisors and professionals, and to be treated as a business development company ("BDC") under the Investment Company Act of 1940. On September 16, 2005, we filed a Form N54A (Notification of Election by Business Development Companies), with the Securities and Exchange Commission, which transforms the Company into a Business Development Company (BDC) in accordance with sections 55 through 65 of the Investment Company Act of 1940. The Company began reporting as an operating BDC in the March 31, 2006 10Q-SB.


Accounting Policies


Basis of Presentation


The accompanying financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, ("U.S. GAAP").


Management Estimates


The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company uses estimates and assumptions in accounting for the following significant matters, among others: the valuation of portfolio investments and the assumptions used as part the going concern analysis. It is at least reasonably possible that these estimates will change in the future. Actual amounts may differ from these estimates, and such differences may be material to the financial statements. The Company periodically reviews estimates and assumptions, and the effects of any such revisions are reflected in the period in which the revision is made.


Valuation of Portfolio Investments


Investments are reported on the balance sheet at fair value. On a quarterly basis the Company performs an analysis of each investment to determine fair value as follows:


Securities for which market quotations are readily available on an exchange are valued at the reported closing price on the valuation date. The Company may also obtain quotes with respect to certain of the Company's investments from pricing services or brokers or dealers in order to value assets. When doing so, the Company determines whether the quote obtained is sufficient according to GAAP to determine the fair value of the security. If determined adequate, the Company uses the quote obtained. The Company uses the Black-Scholes pricing model to determine the fair value of the Company’s warrant investments.


Investment Classification


The Company classifies its investments in accordance with the requirements of the 1940 Act. Under the 1940 Act, "Control Investments" are defined as investments in companies in which the Company owns more than 25% of the voting securities or maintains greater than 50% of the board representation. Under the 1940 Act, "Affiliated Investments" are defined as those non-control investments in companies in which the Company owns between 5% and 25% of the voting securities. Under the 1940 Act, "Non-affiliated Investments" are defined as investments that are neither Control Investments nor Affiliated Investments. The Company has no control investments or affiliated investments as defined under the 1940 Act.


Cash and cash equivalents


Cash consists of balances and may include instruments with maturities of three months or less at the time of purchase and cash equivalent balances on deposit with investment brokerage firms.


Net Decrease in Net Assets from Operations per Share


Basic net decrease in net assets from operations per share is computed by dividing the net decrease in net assets from operations amount adjusted for cumulative dividends on preferred stock (numerator) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period (denominator). Diluted net increase (decrease) in net assets from operations per share amounts reflect the maximum dilution that would have resulted from the assumed exercise of stock options and from the assumed conversion of the Series B Convertible Preferred Stock. Diluted net decrease in net assets from operations per share is computed by dividing the net decrease in net assets from operations amount adjusted for cumulative dividends on preferred stock by the weighted average number of common and potentially dilutive securities outstanding during the period. For all periods presented the above potentially dilutive securities are excluded from the computation as their effect is anti-dilutive.


Income Taxes


The Company has not elected to be a regulated investment company under Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. Accordingly, the Company will be subject to U.S. federal income taxes on sales of investments for which the fair values are in excess of their tax basis. Income taxes are accounted for using an asset and liability approach for financial reporting. The Company recognizes deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amount and the tax basis of assets and liabilities and net operating loss and tax credit carry forwards. Management has established a valuation allowance to reduce deferred tax assets to the amounts expected to be realized in future years. For years before 2009, the Company is no longer subject to U.S. Federal income tax examinations.


Advertising


The Company expenses advertising costs when incurred. There were no advertising fees incurred during the period.



Net Realized Gains or Losses and Net Change in Unrealized Appreciation or Depreciation


Gains or losses on the sale of investments are calculated using the specific identification method. The Company measures realized gains or losses by the difference between the net proceeds from the repayment or sale and the amortized cost basis of the investment, without regard to unrealized appreciation or depreciation previously recognized, but considering unamortized upfront fees and prepayment penalties. Net change in unrealized appreciation or depreciation will reflect the change in portfolio investment values during the reporting period, including any reversal of previously recorded unrealized appreciation or depreciation, when gains or losses are realized.


NOTE 2 – GOING CONCERN


The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates the creation of assets and the liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company does not currently generate operating revenue and must liquidate the Company's investment portfolio to provide cash flow for its operations. The Company is actively seeking sources of revenue for its consulting services but does not have contractual obligations now or in the near future to generate revenue. This fact and the declining market value of the portfolio investment stock it owns due to sales of inventory securities and volatile market conditions has raised substantial doubt regarding Regal's ability to continue as a going concern.  In response, management will continue to liquidate assets as necessary while actively searching out new equity investors and continue to rely upon current shareholders to provide loans or additional investment to meet the Company’s ongoing obligations. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTE 3 - FAIR VALUE OF FINANCICAL INSTRUMENTS


ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The hierarchy gives the highest priority to unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurements) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurements). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy under ASC 820 are described below:


    Level 1   Unadjusted quoted prices in active markets that are accessible

              at the measurement date for identical, unrestricted assets or

              liabilities;


    Level 2   Quoted prices in markets that are not active, or inputs that

              are observable, either directly or indirectly, for

              substantially the full term of the asset or liability;


    Level 3   Prices or valuation techniques that require inputs that are

              both significant to the fair value measurement and unobservable

              (supported by little or no market activity).


The level in the fair value hierarchy within which a fair measurement in its entirety falls is based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety.


The carrying value of cash, and accounts payable, note payable officer, and accrued interest approximates fair value due to the short maturity nature of these instruments.

NOTE 4 - EQUITY TRANSACTIONS


Common Stock


The Company has 50,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $.001, authorized with 3,633,067 issued and outstanding shares.  If all outstanding preferred equity were converted the outstanding shares would increase to 13,633,067.  


Preferred Stock

 

The Company's Certificate of Incorporation allows for segregating the preferred stock into separate series. As of December 31, 2012, the Company had authorized 50,000,000 shares of total preferred stock; 50,000 shares of Series A preferred stock with no shares outstanding; 500,000 shares of Series B convertible preferred stock were authorized and 100,000 shares of Series B preferred stock were outstanding.


Holders of Series A preferred stock shall be entitled to voting rights equivalent to 1,000 shares of common stock for each share of preferred. The Series A preferred stock has certain dividend and liquidation preferences over common stockholders.


Holders of Series B preferred stock shall be entitled to voting rights equivalent to 100 shares of common stock for each share of preferred. The Series B preferred stock had been entitled to a non-cumulative dividend of 8.75% of revenues which exceed $5,000,000. In 2004, the Series B class shareholders' voted by a large majority to void the dividend preference. At the option of the holder of Series B preferred stock, each share is convertible into common stock at a rate of 100 shares of common for each share of preferred. In connection with the acquisition of O2 Technology on February 9, 2004, the Share Exchange agreement required that the Series B preferred as a class be restricted to a cumulative conversion into no more than 10,000,000 common shares. This reduction was sought by the Company and was agreed to by 98.5% of the Series B class, effecting a compression of the outstanding Series B preferred from 208,965 shares to the now outstanding 100,000 shares. For the years ended December 31, 2012, and 2011, no dividends have been declared on the Series A or Series B convertible preferred stock.

              

NOTE 5 - INVESTMENTS


Neuralstem, Inc.


At December 31, 2012, the Company owned 280,000 common shares of Neuralstem, Inc. held as an investment. These shares had a valuation of $305,200 based on the closing market price of the stock. 70,500 shares were sold in 2012 to finance Company operations. 217,500 of these shares are not restricted and are freely tradable with 62,500 shares being restricted as they are held as collateral for a note payable to a related party.


Regal One also has one ten year warrant for 1,000,000 common shares of Neuralstem at an exercise price of $5 per share which is significantly above the present fair market value of Neuralstem shares. There is currently no market for Neuralstem stock Options. The price of the underlying publicly traded common stock is used as a significant input in the valuation process.


As of December 31, 2012, using a Black-Scholes Option Pricing model, a $118,800 value has been assigned to this warrant including a 10% discount assigned by management due to low trading volume of Neuralstem common stock. Regal recorded a $23,400 unrealized gain on the investment in 2012 due to increase in the fair value as determined by the Black-Scholes model.


The Board of Directors is responsible for determining in good faith the fair value of the securities and assets held by the Company. The Investment Committee of the Board of Directors has adopted provisions for valuation of the portfolio as described in Note 1 under Fair Value Accounting through ASC 820. The Investment Committee bases its determination on, among other things, applicable quantitative and qualitative factors. These factors may include, but are not limited to, the type of securities, the nature of the business of the portfolio company, the marketability of and the valuation of securities of publicly traded companies in the same or similar industries, current financial conditions and operating results of the portfolio company, sales and earnings growth of the portfolio company, operating revenues of the portfolio company, competitive conditions, and current and prospective conditions in the overall stock market. Without a readily recognized market value, the estimated value of some portfolio securities may differ significantly from the values that would be placed on the portfolio if there was a ready market for such equity securities.

NOTE 6 - INCOME TAXES


The Company has not elected to be a regulated investment company under Subchapter M of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. Accordingly, the Company will be subject to U.S. federal income taxes on sales of investments for which the fair values are in excess of their tax basis. Income taxes are accounted for using an asset and liability approach for financial reporting. The Company recognizes deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amount and the tax basis of assets and liabilities and net operating loss and tax credit carry forwards. Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amounts expected to be realized.


At December 31, 2012 and 2011, the Company had a federal operating loss carry forward of $2,672,423 and $2,719,071 respectively. Under IRC Section 172(b)(3), the taxpayer elects to relinquish the entire two year carryback period with respect to any regular tax and AMT net operating loss incurred during the current tax year. Regal became a BDC in June 2005. The deferred tax expires in the periods between 2019 to 2030.

                                

The provision for income taxes consisted of the following components for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011:

                                            2012          2011

                                         ---------     ----------  

   Current:

        Federal                                --           --

        State                                  --           --   

   Deferred:                                   --           --

 

Components of net deferred tax assets, including a valuation allowance, are as follows at December 31:


   Deferred tax assets:                     2012          2011  

                                        ---------      --------

   Net operating loss carry forward    $1,143,797    $ 1,163,762

                                        ------------   ----------

          Total deferred tax assets    $1,143,797    $ 1,163,762

 

   Less: Valuation allowance           (1,143,797)    (1,163,762)

                                       ------------   ----------

    Net deferred tax assets            $      --     $        --


FASB authoritative guidance requires that a valuation allowance be established when it is more likely than not that all or a portion of deferred tax assets will not be realized. The valuation allowance for deferred tax assets as of December 31, 2012 and 2011 was $1,143,797 and $1,163,762, respectively. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon the generation of future taxable income in the periods in which those temporary differences become deductible. In assessing the recovery of the deferred tax assets, management considers the scheduled reversals of future deferred tax assets, projected future taxable income, and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. As a result, management determined it was more likely than not the deferred tax assets would not be realized as of December 31, 2012 and 2011. Net Deferred Tax Assets are not presented on our Balance Sheets.


Reconciliation between the statutory rate and the effective tax rate is as follows at December 31:

                                              2012           2011

Federal statutory tax rate                   (34.0)%        (34.0)%

State taxes, net of federal tax benefit  (8.8)%       (8.8)%

Increase in valuation allowance          42.8 %        42.8%

Effective tax rate                          0%            0%
