ITEM I.  BUSINESS


The Company


Global Ecology Corporation (“GECO”) is a Nevada corporation formed in 1993. Our principal executive office is located at 96 Park Street Montclair, New Jersey 07042 and our telephone number is (973) 655-9001. GECO’s website is www.geco.us.  From 1998 until the third quarter of 2004, we provided financial products and related services to the new and pre-owned automotive finance industry. We primarily purchased and subsequently sold automobile finance receivables collateralized by new and pre-owned automobiles. The receivables were predominately purchased from automobile retailers nationwide and sold to banks and credit unions.


We changed our name to Homeland Security Network, Inc. (OTC: HSYN) on March 1, 2005 to reflect the direction of a new course of business. HSNI targeted markets such as commercial trucking and cargo management, commercial fleet management, equipment rental and personal vehicle tracking. During the period from March, 2005 until the end of 2007, we provided the GPS tracking industry with state-of-the-art software, as well as low cost tracking hardware, and the ability to offer a cost-effective data transmission fee


In the fourth quarter of 2007, we began investing in a new industry and we secured distribution rights to a patented water restoration technology, which represented a substantial opportunity in the multi-billon dollar global water purification market. Our company has proposed the use of its services in the United States and several foreign counties. On August 18, 2009 we changed our name to Global Ecology Corporation to reflect this shift in business direction to the environmental sector.


We have supported a number of events at the United Nations and have established our self as a strategic partner with International Renewable Energy Organization (“IREO”), a Brazilian private partner of the United Nations.

Peter Ubaldi, our President and CEO, has been appointed as Chairman of IREO’s Water Restoration Committee.  We have proposed our remediation technology for contaminated bodies of water and for the remediation of soil in South America, Central America, the Philippines and the United States as part of its expanding marketing efforts.  


We entered into a joint venture with Huma-Clean, LLC, a Texas-based soil remediation and re-seller of processed soil for consumer and commercial users.  The first project is underway in Juarez, Mexico, and we are hopeful that the next sites will be located in the United States.   Our  initial belief was  that revenue from these activities would begin to be recorded in the fourth quarter of 2008 and that the first order of its processed soil has would have been received for in excess of $2,000,000. However, the violence that has occurred in the City of Juarez and the surrounding area have taken the government officials’ focus away from the building and expansion of their farmlands. This has directly impacted potential orders.   Nevertheless, the Joint Venture continues to produce “Gourmet Soil” and a contract has been entered into for the shipment of soil to India and discussions are in progress with other substantial new buyers.  We have advanced $800,000 to the venture.  The terms of the agreement call for the initial revenue to be used to repay the advance, however the we can  allow a portion of the repayment to be left in the Venture for working capital if we desire.


Plan of Operation


In the fourth quarter of 2007, we began investing in a new industry. We had secured distribution rights to a patented water restoration technology at that time, which represented a substantial opportunity in the multi-billon dollar global water purification market.  We have proposed the use of this technology in the United States and several foreign counties. As we continued to explore and develop the business of water restoration, we have discovered many new uses for the process.  In addition, we have arranged to use an upgraded version of our original purification solution and are establishing a private label licensing opportunity with a Canadian company.   Our new formula will be a safe all natural mineral solution with uses for individuals and industry as well. Currently, we have a Letter of Intent with EnvirEau, the Canadian company for the exclusive use of their solution in certain industry applications here in the US.  The natural mineral based formula will be marketed under own label IMS1000 as soon as the necessary approvals have been received.


In July 2008, we announced that we had filed an application to patent its Mobile PureWater System. This transportable system filters and purifies up to 90,000 liters of water per day by pumping it from a contaminated water source and treating it within the system itself. The unit is powered by solar, wind, diesel generator or vehicle alternator dispatch and requires no external power source. The original design has recently been modified and we are offering a full spectrum of options and improved functionality.  Our new systems are smaller and more compact but with the same durability and efficiency as our other models.


In September 2008, we entered into a contract with Global Safety Holdings Corp., (“GSH”) a U.S privately held company with a substantial presence in Russia.  We have sold the rights to their technology to GSH for use through Europe and Asia but specifically in Russia. GECO has received a 10% non-dilutive interest in GSH and a percentage of the cash flow from GSH. We have also retained our rights exclusively to this technology in the United States and Mexico. To date GSH has been unsuccessful in establishing itself in the targeted market in Russia.  We will continue to work with the principals of GSH if they require our services but our exposure to opportunities in the GPS industry has at best been very limited.  Our complete focus is in environmental restoration.



ITEM 1A.  RISK FACTORS


Limited Operating History of Present Business:


Our prospects must be considered in light of the risks, expenses, difficulties and problems frequently encountered in transitioning a company into new business opportunities.


Risks, uncertainties and factors that could cause GECO’s actual results to differ materially from forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, the following:


·

The ability to maintain adequate liquidity and produce sufficient cash flow to meet our capital expenditure requirements;

·

The ability to attract and retain qualified management and other personnel;

·

The number of potential customers in a target market;

·

Changes in the competitive environment in which we operates;

·

Changes in government and regulatory policies;

·

Uncertainty relating to economic conditions generally and in particular affecting the markets in which we operate;

·

Pricing and availability of equipment, materials, inventory and programming;

·

The ability to complete acquisitions or divestitures and to integrate any business or operation acquired;

·

The ability to enter into strategic alliances or other business relationships;

·

The ability to overcome significant operating losses;

·

The ability to reduce costs;

·

The ability to develop our products and services and to penetrate existing and new markets; and

·

Technological developments and changes in the industry


Risk Associated with Expansion:


Our growth strategy may include future mergers or acquisitions, or expansion of services and products offered. There can be no assurance that management will successfully integrate our “refocused” operations with those that may be acquired or established in the future and effectively manage the combined enterprise. There will be a need to limit overhead as additional operations may be acquired while still maintaining sufficient staff. Failure to do so would have a materially adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations (See Plan of Operations).


Competition:


We will also experience competition in the water purification and soil remediation industries. Both of these segments rely on technologies that must satisfy numerous regulatory and compliance requirements which have already been overcome by the developers of the technology that we have licensed.  We are aligning our self with established professionals and experts in these industries. We anticipate that the new technologies which it will bring to the market should provide a competitive advantage.  However, there are large and well capitalized businesses that will offer competition that could make our progress into this new business segment difficult.


Dependence on Key Alliances:


Presently, we no longer are dependent on a single electronics developer and manufacturer to develop and manufacture our products. However, it is possible that new emerging technologies could render our products obsolete or that procurement of supplies could become scarce or more costly to acquire should our suppliers terminate their alliance with us.


Additionally, we presently rely on the ability of a wholesale distributor, strategic alliances and a limited in-house sales force to market and sell the products. Many competitors are larger and have greater financial and marketing resources than us.


Dependence on Management Information Systems:


Our future success depends in part on the ability to continue to adapt technology on a timely and cost-effective basis to meet changing customer and industry standards and requirements.


Dependence on Key Personnel:


We is highly dependent on the services of certain key employees. We have entered into an employment agreement with some, but not all such employees. The loss of certain key employees' services could have a materially adverse effect on our business and operations. In addition, our future success depends upon its ability to attract and retain qualified general personnel, which have sufficient and suited expertise in the water purification industry and the soil remediation business.  There can be no assurance of success in attracting and retaining qualified personnel in the future.


Market for Common Stock; Volatility of Prices:


There has been a limited public trading market for our shares of common stock. There can be no assurance that a regular trading market for the common stock will ever develop or, if developed, that it will be sustained.  The market price of the common stock could also be subject to significant fluctuations in response to such factors as variations in the anticipated or actual results of operations of the Company, changes in conditions affecting the economy generally, analyst reports, general trends in industry, and other political or socioeconomic events or factors.


Liquidity and Need for Additional Funding:


Due to recurring operating losses and our current working capital deficit, there is a need to obtain additional funding of working capital for us to operate as a going concern. Various types of additional funding such as issuance of additional common or preferred stock, additional lines of credit, or issuance of subordinated debentures on other forms of debt will be pursued. We are currently negotiating additional investments in the company.  However, there can be no assurance that additional funding will be available when needed, or if available, that its terms will be favorable or acceptable.


Substantial Leverage:


Although substantially leveraged at the end of fiscal year 2008, in order to meet the ongoing working capital requirements of us, additional indebtedness may have to be incurred, perhaps resulting in a more highly leveraged capital structure. A highly leveraged capital structure could have adverse consequences, including:


·

Limiting the ability to obtain additional financing;

·

Requiring the use of operating cash flow to meet interest and principal repayment obligations;

·

Increasing our vulnerability to changes in general economic conditions and competitive pressures; and

·

Limiting our ability to realize some or all of the benefits of significant business opportunities.


In addition, any indebtedness that would be incurred is expected to contain covenants that limit, among other things, the ability to incur additional indebtedness, engage in mergers and acquisitions, pay dividends or take other actions. These covenants may also require the meeting of certain financial tests and the maintenance of a minimum level of collateral and may give the lender the right to perform periodic audits to ensure compliance with the terms of the applicable loan. Non-compliance with any of the terms of such covenants may result in a suspension of funding, acceleration and consequent demand for repayment and a foreclosure on collateral, as well as the pursuit of other rights and remedies, all of which could have a materially adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations and prospects of the company.


Interest Rate Fluctuations:


Our profitability is based, in part, on the interest rate charged on interest bearing liabilities. Interest rates with respect to outstanding indebtedness or indebtedness that may be incurred in the future are, or will be, as the case may be, based on interest rates prevailing in the market at the time the debt is incurred. In some cases, the rates may be floating rates. Increases in interest rates paid on outstanding indebtedness would adversely affect our profitability and consume cash allocated for other operating activities.


Lack of Prospective Dividends:


We have not paid any dividends on its common stock and anticipates that future earnings, if any, will be used to reduce debt or finance future growth and that dividends will not be paid to shareholders. There can be no assurance that operations will result in sufficient revenues to enable the us to operate at profitable levels or to generate positive cash flow. Accordingly, we do not anticipate the payment of any dividends on common stock for the foreseeable future (see Item 5, Market for Common Equity and Related Stockholder Matters).


Inflation:


Higher interest rates, which generally occur with inflation, would tend to increase the cost of credit used by us and would thus, decrease profits.


Possible Other Risks:


In addition to all risks and assumptions including, but not limited to, those identified under this "Risk Factors" section, businesses are often subject to risks not foreseen or fully appreciated by management. In reviewing this report, investors and potential investors should keep in mind other possible risks that could be important. Among key factors that may have a direct bearing on our results are competitive practices in GPS tracking industries and the environmental restoration business, the ability to meet existing financial obligations in the event of adverse industry or economic conditions or to obtain additional capital to fund future research and development requirements of their products, commitments and expansion, and the impact of current and future laws and governmental regulations on operations.


Employees


At December 31, 2009, we employed a total of 5 people. No employees are covered by a collective bargaining agreement.

ITEM 2. DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY



The principal executive office of the Company is located at 96 Park Street, Montclair, New Jersey 07042 75254. Approximately 1,000 square feet of leased premises are at this location. The rent is approximately $13,000 per year. The lease expires in January 2013.



ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS


The Company is presently a party to legal proceeding as follows:  


Plus 4 Credit Union FK/A Houston Postal Credit Union (“HPCU”).  The Company, through its formerly wholly owned subsidiary, Autocorp Financial Services, Inc. (“ACFS”) had entered into an auto loan servicing agreement dated January 7, 2003. ACFS and HPCU had disputes over collection of certain auto finance receivables and general performance under the servicing agreement. In January 2008, HPCU and the Company reached a $41,000 settlement agreement.  The company was to pay $5,000 upon signing of the document and a monthly payment of $1,000 per month through February 2009. The total payments made to date under this arrangement are $9,000.  A balloon payment of $24,000 was due on March 1, 2009 but the Company is attempting to extend this date.  This settlement is secured by a $41,000 judgment.


Waterville Associates.  The Company entered into a contract for services to be provided by Waterville Associates.  The services to be received from Waterville included but were not limited to: the production of a research report, a display on the Waterville web site, access to their opt-in e-mail of potential investors and assistance in raising capital.  None of these services were rendered by Waterville.  The Company believes that the suit is without merit and in fact the Company’s attorney will counter-claim for substantial damages from Waterville’s non-performance.


Chris Verrone. In May 2008, Mr. Verrone loaned the Company $100,000 under a convertible note agreement. The note was converted to common shares during June 2008.  Subsequently, Mr. Verrone requested additional consideration, and even though the Company had no obligation to accommodate this request, the Chairman of the Company advanced him $25,000 on behalf of the Company and the Company signed an agreement to pay him an additional $75,000 within 60 days.  The Company was not able to meet this deadline and Mr. Verrone commenced litigation.  


ITEM 4. ( REMOVED AND RESERVED



PART II


ITEM 5. MARKET FOR COMMON EQUITY AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS


Our common stock was traded on the OTC Bulletin Board but due to late filings, it has been put on the Pink Sheets.  There were several mitigating circumstances which created this event and although the Company appealed the decision it was unable to immediately regain Bulletin Board status.  However the Company has met and continues to meet the filing deadlines and will re-apply for Bulletin Board status during 2010.

The Company


Global Ecology Corporation (“GECO”) is a Nevada corporation formed in 1993. Our principal executive office is located at 96 Park Street Montclair, New Jersey 07042 and our telephone number is (973) 655-9001. GECO’s website is www.geco.us.  From 1998 until the third quarter of 2004, we provided financial products and related services to the new and pre-owned automotive finance industry. We primarily purchased and subsequently sold automobile finance receivables collateralized by new and pre-owned automobiles. The receivables were predominately purchased from automobile retailers nationwide and sold to banks and credit unions.


We changed our name to Homeland Security Network, Inc. (OTC: HSYN) on March 1, 2005 to reflect the direction of a new course of business. HSNI targeted markets such as commercial trucking and cargo management, commercial fleet management, equipment rental and personal vehicle tracking. During the period from March, 2005 until the end of 2007, we provided the GPS tracking industry with state-of-the-art software, as well as low cost tracking hardware, and the ability to offer a cost-effective data transmission fee


In the fourth quarter of 2007, we began investing in a new industry and we secured distribution rights to a patented water restoration technology, which represented a substantial opportunity in the multi-billon dollar global water purification market. Our company has proposed the use of its services in the United States and several foreign counties. On August 18, 2009 we changed our name to Global Ecology Corporaton to reflect this shift in business direction to the environmental sector.


We have supported a number of events at the United Nations and have established our self as a strategic partner with International Renewable Energy Organization (“IREO”), a Brazilian private partner of the United Nations.

Peter Ubaldi, our President and CEO, has been appointed as Chairman of IREO’s Water Restoration Committee.  We have proposed our remediation technology for contaminated bodies of water and for the remediation of soil in South America, Central America, the Philippines and the United States as part of its expanding marketing efforts.  


We entered into a joint venture with Huma-Clean, LLC, a Texas-based soil remediation and re-seller of processed soil for consumer and commercial users.  The first project is underway in Juarez, Mexico, and we are hopeful that the next sites will be located in the United States.   Our  initial belief was  that revenue from these activities would begin to be recorded in the fourth quarter of 2008 and that the first order of its processed soil has would have been received for in excess of $2,000,000. However, the violence that has occurred in the City of Juarez and the surrounding area have taken the government officials’ focus away from the building and expansion of their farmlands. This has directly impacted potential orders.   Nevertheless, the Joint Venture continues to produce “Gourmet Soil” and a contract has been entered into for the shipment of soil to India and discussions are in progress with other substantial new buyers.  We have advanced $800,000 to the venture.  The terms of the agreement call for the initial revenue to be used to repay the advance, however the we can  allow a portion of the repayment to be left in the Venture for working capital if we desire.


Plan of Operation


In the fourth quarter of 2007, we began investing in a new industry. We had secured distribution rights to a patented water restoration technology at that time, which represented a substantial opportunity in the multi-billon dollar global water purification market.  We have proposed the use of this technology  in the United States and several foreign counties. As we continued to explore and develop the business of water restoration, we have discovered many new uses for the process.  In addition, we have arranged to use an upgrated version of our original purification solution and are establishing a private label licensing opportunity with a Canadian company.   Our new formula will be a safe all natural mineral solution with uses for individuals and industry as well. Currently, we have a Letter of Intent with EnvirEau, the Canadian company for the exclusive use of their solution in certain industry applications here in the US.  The natural mineral based formula will be marketed under own label IMS1000 as soon as the necessary approvals have been received.


In July 2008, we announced that we had filed an application to patent its Mobile PureWater System. This transportable system filters and purifies up to 90,000 liters of water per day by pumping it from a contaminated water source and treating it within the system itself. The unit is powered by solar, wind, diesel generator or vehicle alternator dispatch and requires no external power source. The original design has recently been modified and we are offering a full spectrum of options and improved functionality.  Our new systems are smaller and more compact but with the same durability and efficiency as our other models.


In September 2008, we entered into a contract with Global Safety Holdings Corp., (“GSH”) a U.S privately held company with a substantial presence in Russia.  We have sold the rights to their technology to GSH for use through Europe and Asia but specifically in Russia. GECO has received a 10% non-dilutive interest in GSH and a percentage of the cash flow from GSH. We have also retained our rights exclusively to this technology in the United States and Mexico. To date GSH has been unsuccessful in establishing itself in the targeted market in Russia.  We will continue to work with the principals of GSH if they require our services but our exposure to opportunities in the GPS industry has at best been very limited.  Our complete focus is in environmental restoration.


Employees


At December 31, 2009, we had employed a total of 5 people. No employees are covered by a collective bargaining agreement.


Going Concern


Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the assumption that we will continue as a going concern. We are seeking various types of additional funding such as issuance of additional common or preferred stock, additional lines of credit, or issuance of subordinated debentures or other forms of debt. The funding would alleviate the GECO’s working capital deficiency and increase profitability.  However, it is not possible to predict the success of our efforts to achieve profitability or to secure additional funding. Also, there can be no assurance that additional funding will be available when needed or, if available, that its terms will be favorable or acceptable. We have also renegotiated certain present liabilities in order to alleviate the working capital deficiency.


If the additional financing or arrangements cannot be obtained, we would be materially and adversely affected and there would be substantial doubt about GECO’s ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and realization of assets and classifications of liabilities necessary if we become unable to continue as a going concern.


Revenues


Product Sales:


For the year ended December 31, 2009 revenues from product sales decreased by 36%, or $32,297 as compared to the same period a year ago, primarily because the Company elected to concentrate its efforts into developing water treatment and soil remediation technology.

For the year ended December 31, 2009 revenue from sources categorized as other income increased by                  $740,950   as compared to the same period a year ago, due to the write off of certain accounts payable that were older than 4 years old as a result in the implementation of a company policy to write off inactive accounts that are older than four years old. All accounts were reviewed by management to ensure non activity and age.


Cost of Sales


Product Sales:


For the year ended December 31, 2009 cost of product sales decreased by 29%, or $12,393 as compared to the same period a year ago, primarily due to a decrease in the purchase of product while the Company concentrate its efforts into developing water treatment and soil remediation technology.

Professional fees decreased by $141,662 for the year ended December 31, 2009 as compared to the previous year primarily due to increased needs related to legal council, accounting fee requirements, and consulting fees mostly related to SEC compliance.


Depreciation and amortization expense increased $8,113 for the year ended December 31, 2009 as compared to the previous year due to the depreciation of leasehold improvements made to the Keasbey, NJ office in 2008 and amortization of capitalized software acquired in September 2007.


The Sales development and marketing expenses decreased $459,459 for the year ended December 31, 2009 as compared to the previous year due to the Company entering the water purification industry and aggressively pursuing this business during 2008 and decreasing in 2009.  The Company utilizes the services of several consultants to establish business relationships which include foreign governments, domestic government agencies, and partnerships with United Nations groups and humanitarian organizations.


Other debt settlement fees decreased  by $278,632 for the year ended December 31, 2009 as compared to the previous year due to the Company incurring additional fees related to the settlement of notes by common stock.


Interest Expenses


Interest expense decrease by $50,.006 for the year ended December 31, 2009 as compared to the previous year primarily due to the settlement of certain outstanding debt from issuances of common stock.


Liquidity


Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the assumption that we will continue as a going concern. Management is seeking various types of additional funding such as issuance of additional common or preferred stock, additional lines of credit, or issuance of subordinated debentures or other forms of debt. The funding should alleviate our working capital deficiency and increase profitability. However, it is not possible to predict the success of our efforts to achieve profitability. Also, there can be no assurance that additional funding will be available when needed or, if available, that its terms will be favorable or acceptable.


These factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include adjustments relating to the recoverability and realization of assets and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the we be unable to continue in operation.  Management is seeking to raise additional capital and to renegotiate certain liabilities in order to alleviate the working capital deficiency.


Due to recurring operating losses and our current working capital deficit, there is a need to obtain additional funding of working capital for us to operate as a going concern. We incurred operating losses of $1,601,548, and net losses of $1,689,277 for the year ended December 31, 2009. In 2009, we have been able to minimally sustain its working capital needs based on capital derived primarily from:  issuances of additional common stock and  notes payable. .


GECO’s cash flows from operating, investing and financing activities, as reflected in the consolidated statements of cash flows, are summarized in the following table:

Net cash used in operating activities for the year ended December 31, 2009 increased by $413,332 from cash used in operations for the previous year ended due primarily to the following specifics:


Accounts payable and other accrued expenses decreased by $667,415 primarily due to the settlement of certain liabilities through the issuance of common stock and the write off of liabilities that are older than four years old (per adopted company policy>


Account receivable from related parties increased by $0 for joint ventures in water treatment and soil remediation projects implemented in 2008.


Net cash used by investing activities decreased by $1,030,388 for the year ended December 31, 2009 due to the  expenditures for furniture, fixtures and leasehold improvements to open the new office in Keasbey, NJ in 2008 and the investment in joint ventures in 2008.


Net cash provided by financing activities decreased by $1,441,966 for the year ended December 31, 2009 compared to the prior year ended due to increased borrowing for entry into the water treatment and soil remediation projects implemented in 2008.


Market for Common Stock; Volatility of Prices


There has been a limited public trading market for our Common Shares.  There can be no assurance that a regular trading market for the Common Shares will ever develop or, if developed, that it will be sustained. The market price of the Common Shares could also be subject to significant fluctuations in response to such factors as variations in the anticipated or actual results of our operations or other companies in the business of environmental restoration , changes in conditions affecting the economy generally, analyst reports, general trends in industry, and other political or socioeconomic events or factors.


Off Balance Sheet Arrangements


We do not have any transactions, agreements or other contractual arrangements that constitute off-balance sheet arrangements.


Deferred Tax Valuation


GECO continues to incur tax net operating losses, which are available to carry forward and offset future taxable income. These net operating losses were generated, principally as a result of losses resulting from our operations .  A deferred tax asset results from the benefit of utilizing these net operating loss carry-forwards in future years.


Due to the current uncertainty of realizing the benefits of the tax NOL carry-forward, a valuation allowance equal to the tax benefits for the deferred taxes has been established. The full realization of the tax benefit associated with the carry-forward depends predominately upon our ability to generate taxable income during future periods, which is not assured.


Indemnification of Directors and Officers


Subject to and subsequent to an appointment or election as an officer or director, GECO provides contractually indemnification.


GECO agrees to indemnify the positions of directors and officers as follows: A director or officer shall not be liable for any claim or demand on account of damages in any manner. GECO agrees to indemnify and hold directors or officers, without limitation, harmless from any and all damages, losses (which shall include any diminution in value), shortages, liabilities (joint or several), payments, obligations, penalties, claims, litigation, demands, defenses, judgments, suits, proceedings, costs, disbursements or expenses of any kind or nature whatsoever, specifically including without limitation, fees, disbursements and expenses of attorneys, accountants and other professional advisors and of expert witnesses and cost of investigation and preparation. A director or officer will be indemnified from any decision or action taken prior to his or her hire date as


Stock-Based Compensation:


Effective January 1, 2006, we adopted the fair value recognition provisions of SFAS No. 123 (revised 2004), Share-Based Payments , (SFAS No. 123(R)) for all share-based payment awards to employees and directors including stock options, restricted stock units and employee stock purchases related to our employee stock purchase plan.  In accordance with SFAS No. 123(R), shares issued are recorded based on grant-date fair value.  All shares issued for compensation or services are valued at the fair value of the shares at the time or the value of the services rendered, which ever is more accurately attained at the time.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM


April 14, 2010

Board of Directors

Homeland Security, Inc.


We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Homeland Security, Inc. (the “Company”) as of December 31, 2009 and 2008 and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ deficit, and cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our 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 misstatements. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.    

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of December 31, 2009 and 2008, and the results of its operations and changes in stockholders’ deficit and its cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

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 provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

As discussed in Note 4 of the notes to the accompanying consolidated financial statements, the financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  As discussed in Note 4, the Company has current assets of $2,635 and current liabilities of $3,720,630.  In addition, the Company has an accumulated deficit of $27,725,400 and is dependent on the deferral of loans and interest payments along with additional capital $ raising efforts.  Those conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

GLOBAL ECOLOGY CORPORATION AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO AUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS


Note 1. Basis of Presentation


The financial information presented in this report comprises the consolidated financial information (i) for the year ended December 31, 2009; and (ii) for the year ended December 31, 2008.


The consolidated financial statements include the Company’s accounts and those of its subsidiaries.  All material inter-company balances have been eliminated.


In our opinion , the consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, which consist of normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the Company for the period presented. 


Note 2. Significant Accounting Policies


Use of Estimates


The Company’s consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”). These accounting principles require management to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes. When sources of information regarding the carrying values of assets, liabilities and reported amounts of revenue and expenses are not readily apparent, we base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable for making judgments. GECO evaluates all of its estimates on an on-going basis and may consult outside experts to assist in our evaluations. These estimates, judgments and assumptions can affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the consolidated financial statements, as well as the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the periods presented. Actual results could differ from those estimates.


Revenue Recognition


We recognize revenue principally on two types of transactions – sales of products and wireless communication service fees. The products sold and bundled in the product offering include a radio transmitter, hosted software, and a data transmission network.  Revenue arrangements are accounted for under EITF No. 00-21 since the company hosts the software and customers do not have the option to take possession of the software during the hosting period.   GECO believes the multiple deliverable arrangements meets the separate units of accounting criteria under paragraph 9 of EITF No. 00-21.  Accordingly revenue is recognized for the multiple deliverable arrangements as separate units of accounting since the radio transmitter can be used for purposes other than those associated with the service provided.  The units are manufactured for the Company by a subcontractor.  This subcontractor makes these units for other parties and they are sold with different programming.  GECO’s units could be reprogrammed by its customers and then used for other purposes.  The Company feels that this fact establishes that the delivered items should be recognized under the rules for separate units of accounting.  Accordingly the our product meets the three criteria established in paragraph 9 as follows: 1) the delivered item has value on a standalone basis; 2) there is objective and reliable evidence of the fair value of the undelivered items, since many firms provide similar services

on both universal and custom devices; and 3) there is no general right of return. We have discontinued the GPS business segment in 2009 and our focus will be in the area of environmental restoration.


In accordance with guidance provided by the Securities and Exchange Commission’s Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 104, or SAB No. 104, Revenue Recognition , revenue is recognized when all of the following are met: (i) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (ii) title and risk of loss have passed, (iii) delivery has occurred or the services have been rendered, (iv) the sales price is fixed or determinable and(v) collection is reasonably assured.

We  generally recognize revenue on products sales upon shipment, which is prior to the installation of the related products on the consumer’s vehicle or other valuable assets, since the company is not responsible for the installation of the product and the revenue recognized is not conditioned on the installation.  The Company’s policy is that there is no general right of return.


For revenues relating to the sale of wireless communication service, subscriptions are recognized over the life of the contract.  The term of service contracts offered ranges from 1 to 36 months and are generally payable in full, however, some customers submit monthly fees through electronic fund transfers upon activation of the related unit or renewal of a previous service contract.


Accounts Receivable


Accounts receivable relating to the GECO tracking device segment consist of payments due from wholesalers of the products. In the normal course of business, the we monitor the financial condition of our customer base; accordingly, the we have recorded a provision for uncollectible accounts as of December 31, 2009 and 2008, of $133,250 and $133,250, respectively.  The account deemed uncollectible relates to an individual customer for where we had a note payable outstanding to an affiliated entity of the customer with a principal balance of $141,875 and $141,875 as of December 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively.  As the note payable terms do not have a right of offset, we have reserved the balance in full in accordance with its own accounting policies; however, the GECO believes it has a legal right of offset if the affiliated entity of the customer pursues further collection efforts on the notes payable balance.


Fixed Assets and Capitalized Software


Furniture and equipment are carried at cost net of accumulated depreciation. Depreciation and amortization are calculated using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the assets.


Leasehold Improvements are carried at cost net of accumulated depreciation. Depreciation and amortization are calculated using the straight-line method over the life of the lease.


We capitalize certain computer software costs, after technological feasibility has been established, which are amortized utilizing the straight-line method over the economic life of the related software which has been estimated at five years.  Development costs of the software are accounted for in accordance with SOP-98-1.  SOP 98-1 permits capitalization of software costs if they are expenditures related to the applications development.   In the past, and prospectively, GECO has and will capitalize expenditures directly related to the applications development.  For the year ended December 31, 2009, we capitalized $0 of expenditures relating to application development.


Goodwill and Intangible Assets


Goodwill and intangible assets are accounted for in accordance with SFAS No. 142, Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets ("SFAS 142") (now contained in FASB Codification Topic 350, Intangibles-Goodwill and Other). Under SFAS No. 142, goodwill and indefinite lived intangible assets are not amortized but instead are reviewed annually for impairment, or more frequently, if impairment indicators arise. Separable intangible assets that are not deemed to have an indefinite life will continue to be amortized over their estimated useful lives. The Company tests for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of goodwill or other intangible assets may not be recoverable, or at least annually at December 31 of each year. These tests are performed at the reporting unit level using a two-step, fair-value based approach. The first step compares the fair value of the reporting unit with its carrying amount, including goodwill. If the fair value of the reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, a second step is performed to measure the amount of impairment loss.  The second step allocates the fair value of the reporting unit to the Company's tangible and intangible assets and liabilities.  This derives an implied fair value for the reporting unit's goodwill. If the carrying amount of the reporting unit's goodwill exceeds the implied fair value of that goodwill, an impairment loss is recognized equal to that excess.  In the event that the Company determines that the value of goodwill or other intangible assets have become impaired, the Company will incur a charge for the amount of the impairment during the fiscal quarter in which the determination is made.


Deferred financing costs


GECO capitalizes costs associated with the issuance of debt instruments. These costs are amortized on a straight-line basis over the term of the related debt instruments.


Income Taxes


Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are generally recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax basis, and net operating loss carry forwards.


Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. In addition, a valuation allowance has been established to reduce any deferred tax asset in which GECO is not able to determine on a more likely than not basis that the deferred tax asset will be realized.


Long-Lived Assets


GECO accounts for its long-lived assets in accordance with SFAS No. 144, Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets, (“SFAS No. 144”) (now contained in FASB Codification Section 360-10, Property, Plant, and Equipment-- Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Asset subsections), which requires that long-lived assets be evaluated whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable. If the total of the undiscounted future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of the asset or asset group, an impairment loss is recognized for the difference between the estimated fair value and the carrying value of the asset or asset group.



Investment in Joint Venture


In March 2008, we entered into a joint venture with Huma-Clean of Houston Texas.  Under the terms of the agreement, we will share in 50% of the joint venture’s profits and losses.  Thus, GECO will account for this investment under the equity method of accounting.  Under the equity method of accounting, the carrying amount of the investment is increased to reflect our shares of the joint venture’s income and is reduced by its share of the joint venture’s losses.  As the joint venture was formed at the end of March 2008, there was no material profit or loss to recognize during the year ended December 31, 2008 and due to political unrest and violent crime in the region, there were no profits in 2009.  We have advanced $800,000 to the joint venture, which is to be paid back out of the initial proceeds of the venture.  We have  recorded this as an advance to a related party as of December 31, 2008.


Fair Value of Financial Instruments


On September 15, 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued SFAS No. 157, Fair Value Measurements (“SFAS No. 157”) (now contained in FASB Codification Section 825-10-65, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures-Overall-Transition and Open Effective Date Information), which addresses standardizing the measurement of fair value for companies who are required to use a fair value measure for recognition or disclosure purposes.  The FASB defines fair value as “the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.”  The Company’s adoption of the required portions of SFAS No. 157 as of January 1, 2008 did not have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows.  In February 2008, the FASB issued FASB Staff Position No. FAS 157-2,  Effective Date of FASB Statement No. 157  (“FSP 157-2”), permitting entities to delay application of SFAS No. 157 to fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2008, for nonfinancial assets and nonfinancial liabilities, except for items recognized or disclosed at fair value on a recurring basis.  The Company adopted the application of SFAS No. 157 to nonfinancial assets and liabilities effective January 1, 2009; this did not have a material effect on the Company’s financial condition or results of operations.


SFAS No. 157 established a fair value hierarchy to prioritize the inputs used in valuation techniques into three levels as follows.  The hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1 measurement) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3 measurement).


·

Level 1 – Observable inputs that reflect quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.


·

Level 2 – Inputs other than Level 1 that are observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other inputs that are observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.


·

Level 3 – Valuations based on inputs that are unobservable and not corroborated by market data.


At December 31, 2009, the Company’s assets and liabilities reported at fair value utilizing Level 1 inputs include cash and cash equivalents. For these items, quoted current market prices are readily available.  The Company does not currently have any financial instruments utilizing Level 2 and Level 3 inputs.


The following table presents information about the Company’s fair value hierarchy for financial assets as of December 31, 2009:

The carrying amounts of trade receivables and payables, accrued expenses and other current liabilities approximate fair value due to their short-term nature.  


In February 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 159, The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities (“SFAS No. 159”) (now contained in FASB Codification Topic 825-10, Financial Instruments-Fair Value Option subsections), which permits companies to choose, at specified election dates, to measure many financial instruments and certain other items at fair value that are not currently measured at fair value.  Unrealized gains and losses on items for which the fair value option has been elected would be reported in earnings at each subsequent reporting date.  Upfront costs and fees related to items for which the fair value option is elected shall be recognized in earnings as incurred and not deferred.  The Company did not elect the fair value option for any of its existing financial instruments other than those already measured at fair value.  Therefore, the Company’s adoption of SFAS No. 159 as of January 1, 2008 did not have an impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.


Concentrations of Credit Risk


The Company maintains its cash with high credit quality financial institutions. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation secures each depositor up to $250,000.


Stock-Based Compensation


Prior to January 1, 2006, the Company elected to follow Accounting Principles Board Opinion (APB) No. 25, Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees , and related interpretations to account for our employee and director stock options, as permitted by Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (SFAS) No. 123,  Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation . The Company accounted for stock-based compensation for non-employees under the fair value method prescribed by SFAS No. 123. Effective January 1, 2006, The Company adopted the fair value recognition provisions of SFAS No. 123 (revised 2004), Share-Based Payments , (“SFAS No. 123(R)”) (noe contained in FASB Codification Topic 718, Compensation-Stock Compensation) for all share-based payment awards to employees and directors including stock options, restricted stock units and employee stock purchases related to our employee stock purchase plan. In addition, the Company has applied the provisions of Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 107 (SAB No. 107), issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission, in our adoption of SFAS No. 123(R).

The Company adopted SFAS No. 123(R) using the modified-prospective-transition method. Under this transition method, stock-based compensation expense recognized after the effective date includes: (1) compensation cost for all share-based payments granted prior to, but not yet vested as of January 1, 2006, based on the measurement date fair value estimate in accordance with the original provisions of SFAS No. 123, and (2) compensation cost for all share-based payments granted subsequent to January 1, 2006, based on the measurement date fair value estimate in accordance with the provisions of SFAS No. 123(R). Results from prior periods have not been restated and do not include the impact of SFAS No. 123(R). For the nine-month periods ending September 30, 2009 and September 30, 2008, the Company recognized no stock-based compensation expense under SFAS No. 123(R) relating to employee and director stock options, restricted stock units or the employee stock purchase plan.

Stock-based compensation expense recognized each period is based on the greater of the value of the portion of share-base payment awards under the straight-line method or the value of the portion of share-based payment awards that is ultimately expected to vest during the period. SFAS No. 123(R) requires forfeitures to be estimated at the time of grant and revised, if necessary, in subsequent periods if actual forfeitures differ from those estimates.

Upon adoption of SFAS No. 123(R), the Company elected to use the Black-Scholes-Merton option-pricing formula to value share-based payments granted to employees subsequent to January 1, 2006 and elected to attribute the value of stock-based compensation to expense using the straight-line single option method. These methods were previously used for our pro forma information required under SFAS No. 123.

On November 10, 2005, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued FASB Staff Position No. FAS 123(R)-3, Transition Election Related to Accounting for Tax Effects of Share-Based Payment Awards , which detailed an alternative transition method for calculating the tax effects of stock-based compensation pursuant to SFAS No. 123(R). This alternative transition method included simplified methods to establish the beginning balance of the additional paid-in capital pool (APIC pool) related to the tax effects of employee stock-based compensation and to determine the subsequent impact on the APIC pool and Statement of Cash Flows of the tax effects of employee stock-based compensation awards that are outstanding upon adoption of SFAS No. 123(R). Due to the Company’s historical net operating losses, the Company has not recorded the tax effects of employee stock-based compensation and has no APIC pool.

Prior to the adoption of SFAS No. 123(R), all tax benefits of deductions resulting from the exercise of stock options were required to be presented as operating cash flows in the Consolidated Statement of Cash Flows. SFAS No. 123(R) requires the cash flows resulting from the tax benefits resulting from tax deductions in excess of the compensation cost recognized for those options (excess tax benefits) to be classified as financing cash flows. Due to our historical net operating loss position, we have not recorded these excess tax benefits as of December 31, 2009.


The Company has enacted a new policy for certain accounts payable that it has assumed over the years through various mergers and acquisitions.  Some of these payables are quite old and can not be substantiated by either invoice(s), contract, inquiries or other typical vendor/customer communication(s).  Such payables meeting criteria as set below have been reversed and recognized in income in the year ended December 31, 2009.  Management has adopted a policy to write off all accounts that are older that four years and inactive.  Management reviews all accounts for this criteria and determines which accounts meet this criteria. For the year ended December 31, 2009 the company wrote off $740,950 in accounts payable that management deemed to meet this criteria


Recently issued Accounting Pronouncements


In December 2007, the FASB issued SFAS No. 141 (revised 2007), Business Combinations (“SFAS 141R”) (now contained in FASB Codification Topic 805- Business Combinations). Among other changes, SFAS 141R requires the acquiring entity in a business combination to recognize all (and only) the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the transaction at fair value; and establishes the acquisition-date fair value as the measurement objective for all assets acquired and liabilities assumed, including earn-out provisions. Effective January 1, 2009, the Company adopted SFAS No. 141(R).  The adoption of SFAS No. 141(R) has not had and is not expected to have a material impact on the results of operations and financial position.


In April 2008, the FASB issued FASB Staff Position No. 142-3, Determination of the Useful Life of Intangible Assets (“FSP No. 142-3”) (now contained in FASB Codification Topic 350-30, Intangibles other than Goodwill), which amends the factors that should be considered when developing renewal or extension assumptions used to determine the useful life of an intangible asset under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 142 (“SFAS No. 142”),  Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets  , in order to improve consistency between SFAS No. 142 and the period of expected cash flows to measure the fair value of the asset under Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 141 (revised 2007),  Business Combinations  , and other U.S. generally accepted accounting practices. Effective January 1, 2009, the Company adopted FSP No. 142-3. The adoption of FSP No. 142-3 has not had and is not expected to have a material impact on the results of operations and financial position.


In May 2008, the FASB issued SFAS No. 162, The Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (“SFAS 162”). This statement identifies the sources of accounting principles and the framework for selecting the principles used in the preparation of financial statements of nongovernmental entities that are presented in accordance with GAAP.  With the issuance of this statement, the FASB concluded that the GAAP hierarchy should be directed toward the entity and not its auditor, and reside in the accounting literature established by the FASB as opposed to the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Statement on Auditing Standards No. 69, The Meaning of Present Fairly in Conformity With Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. This statement is effective 60 days following the SEC’s approval of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board amendments to AU Section 411, The Meaning of Present Fairly in Conformity With Generally Accepted Accounting Principles . The Company has evaluated the new statement and has determined that it will not have a significant impact on the determination or reporting of its financial results.

We adopted FIN 48, Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes – An interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109 (“FIN48”) on January 1, 2007. FIN 48 clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in tax positions by prescribing the recognition threshold a tax position is required to meet before being recognized in the financial statements. It also provides guidance on derecognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosure, and transition. We had no unrecognized tax benefits and no accrued interest or penalties recognized as of the date of our adoption of FIN48. During the year ended December 31, 2010, there were no changes in our unrecognized tax benefits, and we had no accrued interest or penalties as of December 31, 2010.


Note 3.  Divestiture of Subsidiary


On September 26, 2006, we entered into an agreement to sell 80% of the total issued and outstanding common stock of our wholly-owned subsidiary Pacific Auto Group, Inc. ("PAG") pursuant to a Stock Purchase Agreement by and between Homeland Security Network, Inc. and Monet Acquisition, LLC, a Delaware limited liability company. The Company agreed to indemnify Monet against any contingent liabilities of PAG and return 20% of the entity that could potentially have value in the future depending on the buyer’s future action with the entity in consideration of the stock purchase. Pacific Auto Group, Inc. will be operated and controlled totally independent of HSNI; however, it is the intention of HSNI to distribute the remaining 20% of the outstanding common stock of PAG that HSNI owns to its stockholders as a dividend. As of the end of 2009, PAG has not implemented it’s business plan, which is to acquire existing private companies and with the necessary compliance, filings and disclosures operate them as public entities.  


On May 24, 2007, the Company, then Homeland Security Network, Inc (:HSNI”) contributed 100% of the outstanding stock in its subsidiaries, American Finance Company (“AFCO”) and 100% of the outstanding stock of Autocorp Financial Services, Inc. (“ACFS”) to AFCO Receivables Funding Corp. (“AFCORF”).  After this reorganization, the HSNI sold 90% of its stock in ACORF to Monet Acquisition, LLC.  The Company also issued a Promissory Note in the amount of $95,000 at an interest rate of 10% per annum to Monet.  The loan from Monet is personally guaranteed by the President and CEO of the Company, Peter Ubaldi.


Note 4. Going Concern Uncertainty


We have incurred net losses in the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008 and have had working capital deficiencies both periods.


GECO’s  consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the assumption that the Company will continue as a going concern. We are seeking a  credit facility for the development of certain projects and various types of additional funding such as issuance of additional common or preferred stock, additional lines of credit, or issuance of subordinated debentures or other forms of debt to expand our business. The  additional funding would alleviate the Company's working capital deficiency and increase profitability. However, it is not possible to predict the success of management's efforts to achieve profitability or to secure additional funding. Also, there can be no assurance that additional funding will be available when needed or, if available, that its terms will be favorable or acceptable. We are also seeking to renegotiate certain liabilities in order to alleviate the working capital deficiency.


If the additional financing or arrangements cannot be obtained, GECO would be materially and adversely affected and there would be substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and realization of assets and classifications of liabilities necessary if GECO becomes unable to continue as a going concern.

Note 5. Income (Loss) Per Share


Basic loss per share is computed based on net loss divided by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period.

 

Diluted loss per share is computed based on net loss divided by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period after giving effect to convertible securities considered to be dilutive common stock equivalents. The conversion of preferred stock and stock options during the periods in which the Company incurs a loss from continuing operations before giving effect to gains from the sale of the discontinued operations is not assumed since the effect is anti-dilutive. The number of shares of preferred stock, which would have been assumed to be converted and have a dilutive effect if the Company had income from continuing operations, is 23,121,642 for the year ended December 31, 2009 and 42,490,202 for the Year Ended December 31, 2008.  See Note 18 for common stock transactions subsequent to December 31, 2009.

Note 7. Capitalized Software Costs

 

The Company accounts for the development cost of software intended for sale in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 86, Accounting for Costs of Computer Software to be Sold, Leased, or Otherwise Marketed , (SFAS 86). SFAS 86 requires product development costs to be charged to expense as incurred until technological feasibility is attained. Technological feasibility is attained when the Company’s software has completed system testing and been determined viable for its intended use. Accordingly the Company did not capitalize any development costs other than product development costs acquired through a third party purchase. The Company capitalizes software through technology purchases if the related software under development has reached technological feasibility or if there are alternative future uses for the software.


During 2007, the Company acquired new software to operate and enhance its GPS systems.  The development costs of this software totaled $116,682; these costs were capitalized.


Capitalized software costs and accumulated amortization were as follows for the years ended December 31, 2009 and December 31, 2008.

Note 8. Stock Plans

 

The Company has a non-qualified stock option plan (the “Plan”) that was adopted by the Board of Directors in March 1997. The Plan, as authorized, provides for the issuance of up to 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s stock. Persons eligible to participate in the Plan as recipients of stock options include full and part-time employees of the Company, as well as officers, directors, attorneys, consultants and other advisors to the Company or affiliated corporations.


Options issued under the Plan are exercisable at a price that is not less than twenty percent (20%) of the fair market value of such shares (as defined) on the date the options are granted. The non-qualified stock options are generally non-transferable and are exercisable over a period not to exceed ten (10) years from the date of the grant. Earlier expiration is operative due to termination of employment or death of the issuee. The entire Plan expired on March 20, 2007, except as to non-qualified stock options then outstanding, which will remain in effect until they have expired or have been exercised. As of December 31, 2009, 1,990,289 shares had been exercised and issued under the Plan.


On November 8, 2006, the Company filed a Non-Statutory Stock Option Plan with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  This 2006 Non-Statutory Stock Option Plan is intended as an employment incentive, to aid in attracting and retaining in the employ or service of Homeland Security Network, Inc., a Nevada Corporation, and any affiliated corporation, persons of experience and ability and whose services are considered valuable to encourage the sense of proprietorship in such persons, and to stimulate the active interest of such persons in the development and success of the Company.  This Plan provides for the issuance of non-statutory stock options which are not intended to qualify as incentive stock options within the meaning of section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.  There were a total of 15,000,000 shares in the Plan at inception; 14,700,000 shares have been issued from the Plan as of December 31, 2009.

Note 10. Credit Union Participations


As of December 31, 2008, GECO longer serviced automobile finance receivables. However, there was one remaining credit union relationship (Houston Postal Credit Union/Plus4 Credit Union) which resulted in a dispute over amounts due on the collection of auto finance contracts.  The Company arrived at a settlement with this credit union which calls for a total payment of $41,000 with a $5,000 initial payment and $1,000 per month until March 2009 at which time a balloon payment of $24,000 will be due.  This settlement is secured by a $41,000 judgment.


Note 11. Line of Credit


In November 2003, the Company executed a revolving credit facility in the amount of $10,000,000 with a financial institution that bore interest at a rate of prime plus 2% and matured in November 2004.  The purpose of the credit facility was to provide funding for the purchase of automobile finance installment contracts for sale to banks and credit unions.  The outstanding balance totaling $166,085 at December 31, 2008 is in default. However, we are  presently negotiating revised payment terms with the lender.


In April 2007 the President and CEO of the Company provided a line of credit in the amount of $50,000 to the Company from Atlantic Financial Advisors, Inc (“AFA”), a Corporation which is 100% owned by him.  This line was used for the purchase of inventory of GPS hardware.  We are no longer active in the GPS business and have no need for the line.  There was an outstanding balance on the facility which has been settled for $7,500 payable over 30 months.


Note 12.   Advances to a Related Party


On March 27, 2008, we entered into a joint venture agreement with Huma-Clean of Houston, Texas.  Huma-Clean is in the soil remediation industry and specializes in lake clean up and dredging, internationally.  GECO has committed an initial funding to the first project in Juarez, Mexico in the amount of $800,000.  As of December 31, 2008, we has advanced $800,000 of the agreed upon amount, which is presented as a related party receivable on the balance sheet.


Note 13.  Purchase of Other Intangible Assets


On June 6, 2008, we acquired technology from Robert Elfstrom. Mr. Elfstrom has developed a mobile water purification plant and computerized ballast water distribution system.  The PureWater System is a state of the art water purification system that can be easily deployed in hard to reach locations and can service the daily water needs of a 5,000-person village. The PureWater System removes water-born and human pollution as well as all harmful bacteria. The current mobile and stationary versions of the system can comfortably process about 35,000 gallons day at a rate of 45 gallons of water per minute. The PureWater System can be deployed in several ways. The mobile version is the only transportable high-volume, pure water production system available today using the company’s chelated copper-based formula to purify water.


We agreed to purchase these assets for 1,000,000 shares of our common stock with a value of $215,000 at the date of the agreement.  We issued 100,000 shares upon execution of the Bill of Sale; the balance of the shares will be issued in increments of 300,000 shares each time GECO accumulates net revenues of $2,000,000 from the utilization of the technology.  A dispute has arisen with Mr. Elfstrom and we have  suspended all payments under the agreement along with a hold on any further issuance of stock to Mr. Elfstrom.  We are attempting to arrive at asettlement with Mr. Elfstrom. We have presented this technolgy as other intangible assets on the balance sheet and recorded a liability for the remaining shares to be issued.   


Note 14. Commitments and Contingencies


In July 2006, the Company entered into an equity line of credit agreement with eFund Small Cap Fund II, LP.  Under the terms of the agreement, eFund will be granted warrants to purchase 5,000,000 shares of the Company’s stock contingent upon the Company’s drawing down on the line of credit.  The agreement also provided that the Company was to issue 1,000,000 shares of stock upon execution of the agreement with an additional 4,000,000 shares to be issued as follows: 1,000,000 shares issuable upon the first Put; 1,000,000 shares upon the funding of $1,000,000 under the equity line, and 1,000,000 shares per each funding of $500,000.  As of December 31, 2008, the Board has authorized the issuance of the full 5,000,000 shares. We will return 1,000,000 shares to the Treasury and the balance of the shares have been issued to eFund.  .


Consulting and Employment Contracts


In May 2004, (amended and restated January 2005) the Company entered into an Employment Agreement (“Agreement”) with Peter Ubaldi. The Agreement provided that Mr. Ubaldi should serve as the President of GECO through January 1, 2007. In January of 2007,  we renewed Mr. Ubladi’s Employment Contract for an additional 2 years under the same terms and conditions as the original agreement.  At any time prior to the expiration of the Agreement, HSNI and Mr. Ubaldi may mutually agree to extend the duration of employment under the terms of the Agreement for an additional period or periods. As payment for services, we agree to pay Mr. Ubaldi, as the President, a minimum base salary of $250,000 per annum. As provided in the Agreement, Mr. Ubaldi is eligible to be paid bonuses, from time to time, at the discretion of GECO’s Board of Directors, in cash, stock or other valid form of compensation. Upon termination of and under the terms of the Agreement, Mr. Ubaldi shall be entitled to severance compensation in an amount equal to twenty-four months’ of base salary as shall exist at the time of such termination.  On January 1,2010 the Board of Directors entered into a new Employment Contract with Mr. Ubaldi for an additional 5 years.


In January of 2007, the Company entered into an employment agreement with Roy Pardini to serve as its Executive Vice President. The term of the contract is 2 years with a base salary of $125,000 per year.  As provided by the agreement, Mr. Pardini is eligible to receive bonuses from time to time at the discretion of the Board of Directors in stock, cash or other forms of compensation. Mr. Pardini resigned as an officer and director of the Company in June, 2009.


In June of 2008, the Company entered into a consulting agreement with Vincent Nunez with Huma-Clean of Palestine, Texas.  The term of the contract is 5 years.  The provisions in the agreement include:


·

Mr. Nunez shall be issued 500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock upon execution of the consulting agreement.


·

Each time the Company accumulates $2,000,000 in gross revenues from sales generated in connection with the technology and services of Huma-Clean, an additional 500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock will be issued to the consultant, limited to 2,500,000 total shares.

A quarterly cash distribution equal to 20% of the net revenues generated by the sales of the consultant, limited to $500,000 for any given quarter.


In June of 2008, we entered into an employment agreement with Robert W. Elfstrom.  The term of the contract is 2 years with a base compensation of $104,000 per year with a cash bonus.  Additional provisions in the agreement include a percentage distribution for certain performance requirements.  Mr. Elfstrom and the Company are reviewing their arrangement as there are certain disputes in performance on the part of the parties.  As a result, we have withheld the $50,000 bonus referred to below along with the weekly compensation as stated in the contract.  The Company expects to reach an amicable conclusion with Mr. Elfstrom.

Note 15. Income Taxes


The Company continues to incur tax net operating losses (NOL's), which are available to carry forward and offset future taxable income. These NOL's were generated, principally as a result of the tax losses resulting from the operations of the Company. A deferred tax asset results from the benefit of utilizing the NOL carry-forwards in future years.


Due to the current uncertainty of realizing the benefits of the tax NOL carry-forward, a valuation allowance equal to the tax benefits for the deferred taxes has been established. The full realization of the tax benefit associated with the carry-forward depends predominately upon the Company's ability to generate taxable income during future periods, which is not assured.



The net operating loss carry-forwards as of December 31, 2009 and 2008 are subject to certain loss limitations under IRS Section 382 regulations. The deferred tax summary set forth above does not reflect the effect of the IRS Section 382 limitation for the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008.


Note 16.  Pension Plans


The Company does not currently provide, administer or manage a 401(K) plan or any other pension plan.



Note 17.  Legal Proceedings


The Company, through its former wholly owned subsidiary, Autocorp Financial Services, Inc. (“ACFS”) had entered into an auto loan servicing agreement dated January 7, 2003. ACFS and HPCU have disputes over collection of certain auto finance receivables and general performance under the servicing agreement.  During 2008, HPCU and the Company entered into a settlement agreement.  We paid  $5,000 upon signing of the document and will pay a monthly payment of $1,000 per month through February 2009.  A balloon payment of $24,000 was due on March 1, 2009.  This settlement is secured by a $41,000 judgment.  As of December 31, 2009, payments totaling $9,000 have been made.


Waterville Associates.   We entered into a consulting service agreement with Waterville Associates on March 20, 2007.  The agreement called for certain services by Waterville Associates which included: (a) Posting information about the Company on their web site, (b) Production of an 8 to 10 page research report providing data on GECO, and (c) Assisting us in the creation of capital to implement its business plan.  We  agreed to compensate Waterville for their services by issuing shares of our common stock as these services were performed. We have never received any of the services by Waterville as outlined in the agreement.  Waterville is seeking a claim for compensation as provided for in the agreement. We believe that the lawsuit is without merit and  on going litigation is in progress. .


In addition to the matter described above, GECO is involved in various legal actions and claims from time to time, which arise in the normal course of business. In our opinion, the final disposition of these matters will not have a material adverse effect on our financial position or results of operations.


The Company has enacted a new policy for certain accounts payable that it has assumed over the years through various mergers and acquisitions.  Some of these payables are quite old and can not be substantiated by either invoice(s), contract, inquiries or other typical vendor/customer communication(s).  Such payables meeting criteria as set below have been reversed and recognized in income in the year ended December 31, 2009.  Management has adopted a policy to write off all accounts that are older that four years and inactive.  Management reviews all accounts for this criteria and determines which accounts meet this criteria. For the year ended December 31, 2009 the company wrote off $740,950 in accounts payable that management deemed to meet this criteria


Note 18. Subsequent Events


Subsequent to year end, we entered into a new Employment Agreement with Peter Ubaldi, to continue as President & CEO of GECO.  The term of the contract is 5 years with a base salary of $250,000 per year and incentive compensation.


In February 2010, we entered into 2 Consulting Agreements; (1) Joseph Battiato, (2) William Merritt.  Mr. Battiato serves as Chairman and will continue to use his long standing relationships to bring additional opportunities to GECO.  Mr. Merritt will continue in his capacity as our lead Business Development advisor.  Mr. Battiato and Mr. Merritt will be compensated on a success fee basis with incentive compensation.    





ITEM 9. CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANT ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE


On October 26, 2009, our board of directors dismissed our independent auditing firm, BKR Cornwell Jackson.  There were no disagreements with BKR Cornwell Jackson on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure for the fiscal years ended 2006, 2007 and 2008 and the subsequent interim periods through October 23, 2009.  For the annual reports on Form 10-K fiscal years ended 2006, 2007 and 2008 and quarterly reports on Form 10-Q from 2006 up through October 23, 2009 our auditor’s had issued opinions in each of the reports covered during the periods described above regarding our ability to continue as a going concern.


On October 26, 2009, our board of directors voted to engage W. T. Uniack & Co. CPA’s P.C. as our new independent auditors for the year ended December 31, 2009 and quarterly reviews thereon and for the quarterly review of the quarter ended September 30, 2009.  We did not consult with the new auditor W. T. Uniack & Co. CPA’s P.C concerning our two most recent fiscal years ended 2008 and 2007, and the subsequent interim periods prior to engaging that accountant regarding whether the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed; nor the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on our financial statements, and no written report was provided to us or oral advice was provided that the new accountant concluded was an important factor considered by us  in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue.


ITEM 9A(T). CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES


Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our Securities Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, as ours are designed to do, and management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.

 

As of December 31, 2009, we carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. Based upon that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective in enabling us to record, process, summarize and report information required to be included in our periodic SEC filings within the required time period.

 

Report of Management on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

We are responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. Internal control over financial reporting is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, as a process designed by, or under the supervision of our principal executive and principal financial officers and effected by our board of directors, management and other personnel to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that:


·

pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and disposition of our assets;


·

provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorization of our management and directors; and


·

provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.


·

Our internal control system was designed to provide reasonable assurance to our management and board of directors regarding the preparation and fair presentation of published financial statements. Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risks that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

We have assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2009.  In making this assessment, we used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (“COSO”) in Internal Control-Integrated Framework.


Based on our assessment, we believe that, as of December 31, 2009, our internal control over financial reporting is effective at a reasonable assurance level based on these criteria.


This Annual Report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal controls over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the Company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the SEC that permit the Company to provide only Management’s Report in this Annual Report.


Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no other changes in our internal control over financial reporting that occurred during the period covered by this Annual Report on Form 10-K that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

If a regular meeting is not held, the Directors will sign a unanimous consent in lieu of holding the meeting and will re-elect certain current officers and add new officers and directors for the coming year.

Mr. Ubaldi began his career with a major CPA firm and has since specialized in various finance-related industries as an investment banker and executive manager. Mr. Ubaldi has extensive experience with major banking institutions, as well as specialty finance and equipment leasing companies. Mr. Ubaldi had been the comptroller of one of the countries first publicly traded auto and equipment leasing companies.

Indemnification of Directors and Officers


Subject to and subsequent to an appointment or election as an officer or director, the Company provides contractual indemnification.


The Company agrees to indemnify the positions of directors and officers as follows: A director or officer shall not be liable for any claim or demand on account of damages in any manner. The Company agrees to indemnify and hold directors or officers, without limitation, harmless from any and all damages, losses (which shall include any diminution in value), shortages, liabilities (joint or several), payments, obligations, penalties, claims, litigation, demands, defenses, judgments, suits, proceedings, costs, disbursements or expenses of any kind or nature whatsoever, specifically including without limitation, fees, disbursements and expenses of attorneys, accountants and other professional advisors and of expert witnesses and cost of investigation and preparation. A director or officer will be indemnified from any decision or action taken prior to his or her hire date as a director or officer.  


Code of Ethics


The Company has not yet adopted a code of ethics that applies to its principal executive officer, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer, or controller, or persons performing similar functions.


The Company deferred its adoption of a code of ethics due to events such as the change of control, the Company's contraction, and the refocus of the Company’s business.


The Company is still undergoing several changes to its structure and operating procedures.  It has entered into an industry with products and services of global significance; water purification and soil remediation. For this reason the Company has not completed the adoption of a code of ethics but as soon as it is practical will be posted on the Company’s web site.


Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

 

Section 16(a) of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, generally requires the Company’s directors and executive officers and persons who own more than 10% of a registered class of the Company’s equity securities (10% owners) to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission initial reports of ownership and reports of changes in ownership of Common Stock and other equity securities of the Company. Directors and executive officers and 10% owners are required by Securities and Exchange Commission regulations to furnish the Company with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file. During preparation of this filing, we discovered that the reports required by Section 16(a) were not filed in connection with the securities issuances to our officers and directors during fiscal 2098.

 

Audit Committee

 

During the 2008 fiscal year, our Board of Directors performed some of the same functions of an Audit Committee, such as: recommending a firm of independent certified public accountants to audit the annual financial statements; reviewing the independent auditor’s independence, the financial statements and their audit report; and reviewing management's administration of the system of internal accounting controls.


Nominating Committee

 

We do not have a Nominating Committee or Nominating Committee Charter. Our Board of Directors performed some of the functions associated with a Nominating Committee. Generally, nominees for directors are identified and suggested by the members of the board or management using their business networks. The board has not retained any executive search firms or other third parties to identify or evaluate director candidates in the past and does not intend to in the near future. We have elected not to have a Nominating Committee in that we are a company with limited operations and resources.


ITEM 11. EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION


The following table sets forth, for each of the last three fiscal years, compensation paid by the Company in common stock for its Chief Executive Officer, President and Executive Vice-President.

Compensation Committee

 

We currently do not have a compensation committee of the Board of Directors. However, the Board of Directors may establish a compensation committee once the company’s operations increase, which would consist of inside directors and independent members. Until a formal committee is established, our Board of Directors will review all forms of compensation provided to our executive officers, directors, consultants and employees including stock compensation and loans


Stock Plan


On November 8, 2006, we filed a Non-Statutory Stock Option Plan with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  This 2006 Non-Statutory Stock Option Plan is intended as an employment incentive, to aid in attracting and retaining in the employ or service of GECO and any affiliated corporation, persons of experience and ability and whose services are considered valuable to encourage the sense of proprietorship in such persons, and to stimulate the active interest of such persons in the development and success of GECO.   This Plan provides for the issuance of non-statutory stock options which are not intended to qualify as incentive stock options within the meaning of section 422 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.  There were a total of 15,000,000 common shares originally in the Plan.  As of December 31, 2009, 14,700,000 shares had been issued under the Plan.


Compensation of Directors


No Directors fees were paid during fiscal 2009 or 2010.

THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS PRE-APPROVAL POLICY AND PROCEDURES


We do not have a separate Audit Committee. Our full Board of Directors performs the functions of an Audit Committee.  During fiscal year 2007, the Board of Directors  adopted  policies  and  procedures  for the pre-approval of audit and non-audit  services  for  the  purpose  of  maintaining  the independence of our independent  auditors.  We may not engage our independent auditors to render any audit or non-audit service unless either the service is approved in advance by the Board of Directors or the engagement to render the service is entered into pursuant to the Board of Director's pre-approval policies and procedures. On an annual basis, the Board of Directors may pre-approve services that are expected to be provided to us by the independent auditors during the following twelve months. At  the  time  such  pre-approval  is granted,  the Board of Directors must (1) identify the particular pre-approved services in a sufficient level of detail so that  management  will  not  be  called  upon  to  make judgment as to whether a proposed service  fits  within  the  pre-approved  services and (2) establish a monetary limit with respect to each particular pre-approved service, which limit may  not  be  exceeded  without obtaining further pre-approval under the policy.


The Board has considered whether the provision of the services described above under the caption "All Other Fees" is compatible with maintaining the auditor's independence.
