SHADES HOLDINGS, INC. - 10-Q/A - Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

(Edgar Glimpses Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Forward Looking Statements Our Management's Discussion and Analysis contains not only statements that are historical facts, but also statements that are forward-looking. Forward-looking statements are, by their very nature, uncertain and risky. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, international, national and local general economic and market conditions; demographic changes; our ability to sustain, manage, or forecast growth; our ability to successfully make and integrate acquisitions; existing government regulations and changes in, or the failure to comply with, government regulations; adverse publicity; competition; fluctuations and difficulty in forecasting operating results; changes in business strategy or development plans; business disruptions; the ability to attract and retain qualified personnel; the ability to protect technology; and other risks that might be detailed from time to time in our filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission.


Although the forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report reflect the good faith judgment of our management, such statements can only be based on facts and factors currently known by them. Consequently, and because forward-looking statements are inherently subject to risks and uncertainties, the actual results and outcomes may differ materially from the results and outcomes discussed in the forward-looking statements. You are urged to carefully review and consider the various disclosures made by us in this report and in our other reports as we attempt to advise interested parties of the risks and factors that may affect our business, financial condition, and results of operations and prospects.

Background Shades Holdings, Inc. ("we", the "Company", or "Shades") was incorporated under the laws of Florida on November 23, 2009.

We are a development-stage company, our wholly-owned subsidiary Shades of Fragrances, Inc. which we acquired on June 24, 2013 is a Florida corporation formed May 14, 2013, which owns the federal registered trademark (Registration No. 277316) "Phantom" for perfumes and fragrances. In connection with this acquisition the Company will become a luxury & lifestyle brand developer, through licensing agreements with emerging fashion designers and established celebrity brands, including our own proprietary trademarks in the fragrance and cosmetic industry. We are also engaged in developing our business infrastructure and we are seeking capital to support the further development of our licensing agreements. As of the date of this report, our activities have been limited to various organizational matters, limited operations, and the development of our business plan.

During our development stage, as discussed above, we will incur significant expenditures for organizational costs and marketing, arising both internally and externally. Our organizational costs have made up the majority of our expenses to date. These expenditures are entirely predicated on the success of our financing efforts discussed in Liquidity and Capital Resources, below. We have had to pay for most of our organizational costs with cash and currently anticipate that we will be required to pay for our marketing efforts with cash.

However, to the extent that outside parties will entertain share-based payment arrangements, we will likely pursue negotiations on those lines. We have previously issued shares of our common stock as compensation to certain consultants and our legal service provider. We will seek stock-based compensation arrangements in the future.

-17- As previously reported, on September 7, 2012, the Company entered into a Share Exchange Agreement with Suncoast Real Estate Owned Holdings, Inc., ("Suncoast"), and the shareholder of Suncoast (the "Suncoast Shareholder"), pursuant to which the Suncoast Shareholder agreed to transfer all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Suncoast (the "Suncoast Shares") to the Company in exchange for 15,500,000 shares of common stock of the Company (the "Suncoast Exchange Shares"). The parties contemplated that such exchange would result in Suncoast becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company and the Shareholder acquiring a controlling interest in the Company (the "Suncoast Exchange Transaction").

On November 27, 2012, the Company entered into an agreement with the Suncoast Shareholder, effective as of September 11, 2012 (the "Suncoast Effective Time"), pursuant to which the parties agreed that the Suncoast Shareholder failed to relinquish control of Suncoast to the Company and that the Suncoast Exchange Transaction was never effectively consummated. Accordingly, the Suncoast Shareholder returned the Suncoast Exchange Shares to the Company on November 27, 2012 and the parties agreed that the Suncoast Shares have remained under the ownership of the Suncoast Shareholder since the Suncoast Effective Time.

New Business As stated above, Shades of Fragrances, Inc. ("SOF") is a fragrance branding company and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company which owns the federal registered trademark (Registration No. 277316) "Phantom" for perfumes and fragrances.

In connection with the acquisition the Company will become a luxury & lifestyle brand developer, through licensing agreements with emerging fashion designers and established celebrity brands, including our own proprietary trademarks. SOF applies analytical tools and models, which have been proven successful, to identify and leverage the brand's powerful characteristics. Additionally, on July 2, 2013 the Company appointed David H. Schwanz, formerly a Vice President of Sales at Elizabeth Arden, as President of Shades Of Fragrances, Inc., effective immediately. David's primary focus will be building a sales team to lead the initiatives of the company.

The Company's core business strategy philosophy is based on the three E's of creating a profitable brand, "Engage, Establish, and Execute". The core fundamental of SOF strategy is to provide individual attention to each of the company's brands and products within these brands. This allows SOF to bring the highest quality product to the consumer and within the preference of the target market. With this Company philosophy, the Company encourages development and growth of new and existing brands, as well as maximizing profitability.

These costs reflect normal operating expenses and other administrative expenses, including, without limitation, travel and entertainment expenses.

Net Loss - We have reported net loss of $126,349 and $68,800 during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 respectively. This net loss is a result of the items discussed in the preceding discussion.

Liquidity and Capital Resources The preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles contemplates that operations will be sustained for a reasonable period. However, we have incurred operating losses of $126,349 during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and $382,141 from inception (November 23, 2009) through September 30, 2012. In addition, we used cash of $74,013 in support of our operating activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2012. As of September 30, 2012, we had cash on hand of $328 and a working capital deficit of $(119,958). A substantial portion of our working capital is used for accounts payable which is related to professional services consisting mostly of legal and accounting. Since our inception, we have been substantially dependent upon funds raised through the sales of our stock in private placements to sustain our operating activities. Our operating plan will require substantially all available liquid resources and additional financing sources, which we may not be able to achieve, to continue our business operations. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going.

We issued 95,000 shares of our common stock under our Registration Statement on Form S-1 (File No. 333-168139) at $0.25 per share for total proceeds to the Company of $23,750. The Registration Statement was declared effective by the SEC on October 25, 2010 and the Company closed the offering on September 7, 2011. We had hoped to sell additional shares under the Registration Statement, however there was not sufficient demand for our shares in the market. Since we did not raise sufficient capital under the Registration Statement to sustain our current minimal operations and implement our business plan, we may seek advances from our existing shareholders to meet our existing working capital needs. In addition, we may seek debt financing or short term loans. However, further funding is not assured for the Company to continue as a going concern and, ultimately, we need to generate profitable operations to sustain our business activities. We cannot give any assurances regarding the success of management's plans. Our consolidated financial statements do not include adjustments relating to the recoverability of recorded assets or liabilities that might be necessary should we be unable to continue as a going concern. If we do not secure at least $250,000 we may not be able to continue our current minimal operations beyond the next twelve months and our business plan will fail.

Cash Flow from Operating Activities - We used cash of $74,013 in our operating activities during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and $32,935 during the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

We recorded a net loss of $126,349 and $68,800 during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011.

Our cash from operating activities also includes cash flow provided by changes in our operating assets and liabilities of $687 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to cash flow provided by change in our operating assets and liabilities of $10,685 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Our inventory was $3,104 at September 30, 2012 compared to $3,145 at September 30, 2011.

Accounts payable and accrued expenses were $44,064 at September 30, 2012, an increase of $10,505 from $33,559 at September 30, 2011. This use of funds is due to the timing of payments for services accrued at December 31, 2011.

Cash Flow from Investing Activities - We used $0 cash and $1,500 in our investing activities during the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011.

We have no commitments for the purchase of property and equipment or other long lived assets.

-20- Cash Flow from Financing Activities -We have been substantially dependent on these types of financings since inception.

In March of 2012 we issued an additional $1,000 short term promissory note to the same fund that issued a $6,000 note. In April of 2012 the previous notes along with a new note for $18,000 were combined into one note totaling $25,000 with a one year term. That fund is managed by our former Chief Executive Officer, Sean Lyons. The notes accrued interest at twelve percent per annum for one year with a default clause of an additional $3,000 added to principal. The note is secured by inventory and domains owned by the Company. On June 24, 2013 the note to was paid in the amount of $28,968.

Additionally, on September 11, 2012, the Company issued a 8% note in the principal amount of $32,500 to an investment fund. The note can be converted into common stock a discount to the market price of the common stock. The Company also issued to two related parties which were stockholder of the Company 8% notes each in the principal amount $10,000 convertible into common stock at a discount to the market price of the common stock. On June 24, 2013 the note issued to the investment fund was paid in full with cash.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Critical Accounting Policies Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses and related disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities. For a description of those estimates, see Note 3, Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, contained in the explanatory notes to our financial statements for the period ended September, 2012 and September 30, 2011. On an on-going basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related to deferred tax assets and valuation allowance, impairment of long-lived assets and fair value of our financial instruments and equity instruments. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions; however, we believe that our estimates, including those for the above-described items, are reasonable.

While all of our accounting policies impact the consolidated financial statements, certain policies are viewed to be critical. Critical accounting policies are those that are both most important to the portrayal of our financial condition and results of operations and that require management's most subjective or complex judgments and estimates. Management believes the policies that fall within this category are the policies on revenue recognition, accounts receivable, intangible assets, investments and financial instruments.

Revenue Recognition - Revenue is recognized when a property is closed on or an auction is facilitated for a partner. In this quarter we recognized revenue on the sale of sunglasses related to the previous business which was spun out.

Accounts Receivable - Accounts receivable represent normal trade obligations from customers that are subject to normal trade collection terms, without discounts or rebates. Notwithstanding these collections, we periodically evaluate the collectability of our accounts receivable and consider the need to establish an allowance for doubtful accounts based upon our historical collection experience and specifically identifiable information about our customers.

-21- Inventories - Inventories consist of properties that are in transition to be sold either through auction or typical real estate transactions.

Impairments - The Company's management evaluates its tangible and definite-lived intangible assets for impairment under Accounting Standards Codification 350 (Intangible Assets) and Accounting Standards Codification 360 (Impairment and Disposals). Our evaluation is a two step process. The first step is to compare our undiscounted cash flows, as projected over the remaining useful lives of the assets, to their respective carrying values. In the event that the carrying values are not recovered by future undiscounted cash flows, as a second step, we compare the carrying values to the related fair values and, if lower, record an impairment adjustment. For purposes of fair value, we generally use replacement costs for tangible fixed assets and discounted cash flows, using risk-adjusted discount rates, for intangible assets.

Financial Instruments - Our financial instruments consist of cash and cash equivalents, inventory, accounts payable and accrued expense. We carry cash and cash equivalents, inventory, accounts payable and accrued expense at historical costs; their respective estimated fair values approximate carrying values because of the short-term nature of these investments.

Earnings (Loss) Per Share- The Company uses the guidance set forth under FASB Topic Accounting Standards Codification260 (Earnings Per Share) for calculating the basic and diluted loss per share. Basic loss per share is computed by dividing loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding.

Diluted loss per share is computed similar to basic loss per share except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential shares had been issued and if the additional shares were dilutive. Common equivalent shares are excluded from the computation of net loss per share if they would be anti-dilutive. The Company has no potentially dilutive securities for the period ended September 30, 2012 and September 30, 2011.

Income Taxes - Income taxes are accounted for using the liability method of accounting. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the expected future tax consequences of differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities and their respective tax basis, using currently enacted tax rates. The effect on deferred assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period when the change is enacted. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

Share-Based Compensation - We apply the grant-date fair value method to our share-based payment arrangements with employees under the rules provided in Accounting Standards Codification718 (Accounting for Share-Based Payments) and Staff Accounting Bulletin 107. Share-based compensation cost for employees is measured at the grant date fair value based on the value of the award and is recognized over the requisite service period, which is usually the vesting period for employees. For share-based payment transactions with parties other than employees, we apply Accounting Standards Codification 505-50 (Equity Based Payments to Non-Employees). These non-employee services are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instruments issued, whichever is more reliably measurable. The measurement date for valuing share-based payments made to non-employees is the earlier of the date at which a commitment for performance by the counterparty to earn the equity instruments is reached or the date at which the counterparty's performance is complete. Share-based payments to non-employees are recorded at fair value on the measurement date and reflected in expense over the requisite service period.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements Recent accounting pronouncements- In May 2011, the FASB issued an update that amends the guidance provided in ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement, by clarifying some existing concepts, eliminating wording differences between GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS"), and in some limited cases, changing some principles to achieve convergence between GAAP and IFRS.

The update results in a consistent definition of fair value, establishes common requirements for the measurement of and disclosure about fair value between GAAP and IFRS, and expands the disclosures for fair value measurements that are estimated using significant unobservable (Level 3) inputs. This update became effective in the first quarter of fiscal 2012. We did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements from this adoption of this update.
