Our Business



Alternative Energy Partners, Inc. (the "Company" or "AEGY") was organized under the laws of the State of Florida on April 28, 2008. We formed our company for the purpose of establishing renewable fuel sources initially within the State of Florida. Ethanol was our initial intended product and we intend to establish other alternative energy products and services including, but not limited to, solar-thermal energy production, energy management controls, and more. Our intended original products, while not technically difficult to produce, must meet all regulatory requirements prior to being marketed. Moreover, there are a multitude of competitive products already in the market place. Due to the competitive nature of the market and our continuing capital requirements, we expanded our initial plan to include solar and thermal projects, with the acquisition of Sunarias Corporation on May 18, 2010 and Shovon, LLC on July 9, 2010. During the year ended July 31, 2013 and to date, we continued our business development activities with the acquisition of Clarrix Energy, LLC, an energy management company, but decided to close its operations in May, 2013 in order to concentrate our efforts and limited funds on PharmaJanes™ and Simple PrePay™, acquired in May, 2013.

Current Business of the Company

We are a holding company engaged in the business of providing support and management to entities operating in the medical marijuana space, currently only in California. In May, 2013, the Company agreed to acquire the PharmaJanesTM marketing operation from iEquity Corp. and changed its business model to focus on the medical marijuana marketing space.

PharmaJanes™ is currently developing a web and phone application that allows individuals to place orders for medical marijuana through a website and smart phone application anywhere such a transaction is legal in the United States.

The purpose of PharmaJanes™ is to give patients a simple ordering platform, while allowing local collectives to service the orders in compliance with state and local laws and ordinances. PharmaJanesTM will act solely as an expediter and processor of the orders, and the fulfillment function will be done entirely within the particular state of residence of the purchaser, by licensed collectives or other licensed medical marijuana providers in that state

PharmaJanes™ currently has annual marketing contracts in place with many collectives for this service and will be the exclusive point-of sale for the collectives under contract. The Company also has signed an agreement with SK3 Group, Inc. to become the exclusive on-line and smart phone ordering platform for Collectives managed through the SK3 Group system. Members of the Collectives managed by SK3 Group will soon be able to order their medical cannabis needs through PharmaJanesTM.

The Company also has acquired the Simple PrepayTM merchant payment solution from iEquity Corp. The Simple PrepayTM system was developed to offer dispensaries, collectives, and delivery services of medical cannabis a convenient payment solution. Medical marijuana patients will be able to upload funds onto their Simple PrepayTM account via a smart phone application or via a website, allowing them to purchase their medical cannabis needs with privacy and simplicity.

Combined with the PharmaJanes™ on-line and smart phone ordering platform, medical marijuana patients will be able to order, process and pay for their authorized needs, in a simple, safe and secure ordering and payment interface. Local licensed collectives or other licensed medical marijuana providers in the home state of the end user, will then fulfill the orders provided through this new system, in full compliance with state and local laws and ordinances. The Company itself will act solely as a background ordering and payment service, and will not be cultivating, shipping, delivering, or otherwise handling the medical marijuana, all of which will be handled directly by collectives or other providers licensed and authorized in the state in which the delivery is both authorized and completed.

PharmaJanesTM will act solely as an expediter and processor of the authorized orders, and Simple PrepayTM will provide the secure payment platform, while the actual fulfillment function will be done entirely within the particular collective.

In early March, 2014, we announced an agreement in principal to merge with SK3 Group, Inc. (OTC Pink: SKTO) Final terms of the merger are still being worked out and a merger agreement was signed on April 3, 2014. The basic terms of the agreed merger call for SKTO and AEGY to merge into a newly formed holding company, already formed in Colorado, which will integrate the separate operations of both companies. Shareholders of each constituent party to the merger will receive shares of the new holding company, which will succeed to the SEC reporting obligation of AEGY and which will apply for a new trading symbol, a new CUSIP number, and continued electronic trading status with the Depository Trust Company. The final exchange rate for the common shares of AEGY and SKTO will be based on the volume weighted average market value of each company on the record date, which has not yet been determined.

The previously announced dividend of the 100 million shares of AEGY to be issued to SKTO will be accounted for in the merger by treating those shares as held proportionately by the SKTO shareholders as of the record date. Closing of the proposed merger will require the new holding company to register the shares to be issued in the merger to the shareholders of both AEGY and SKTO, and SKTO has retained an independent accounting firm to conduct an audit of its books as the first required step in the registration process. The audit is expected to be completed in July, 2014after which the registration statement will be filed for review by the SEC.

As a result of the merger, the Boards of Directors of the two companies will be restructured and combined into a new Board of Directors in the surviving holding company.

Employees



Mario Barrera currently is our Chairman, President and CEO and sole officer. He is not an employee of the company and is not paid as an employee. Currently, we have no paid employees, full or part-time, and rely on paid consultants to provide necessary services.

Results of Operations for Three and Nine Months Ended April 30, 2014 and 2013.

For the three months ended April 30, 2014 and 2013, the Company had no revenues. For the three months ended April 30, 2014 and 2013, we incurred operating expenses of $101,470 and $41,694, respectively, and we had net income (losses) of $1,268,055 and ($50,705), respectively. Our activities have been attributed primarily to business development.

For the nine months ended April 30, 2014 and 2013, the Company had no revenues. For the nine months ended April 30, 2014 and 2013, we incurred operating expenses of $255,901 and $474,956, respectively, and we had net income (losses) of $1,762,716 and ($664,016), respectively. Since inception, has incurred cumulative net losses of $8,980,576. Our activities have been attributed primarily to business development.

Liquidity and Capital Resources and Going Concern

As shown in the accompanying financial statements, for the nine months ended April 30, 2014 and 2013 and since April 28, 2008 (date of inception) through April 30, 2014, the Company has had net income (losses) of $1,762,716 ($664,016) and ($8,980,575), respectively. As of April 30, 2014, the Company had not emerged from the development stage. In view of these matters, the Company's ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the Company's ability to begin operations and to achieve a level of profitability. Since inception, the Company has financed its activities principally from the sale of public equity securities. The Company intends on financing its future development activities and its working capital needs largely from the sale of public equity securities with some additional funding from other traditional financing sources.

We have incurred significant net losses and negative cash flows from operations since our inception. As of April 30, 2014, we had an accumulated deficit of $8,980,575 and a working capital deficit of $508,031

We anticipate that cash used in product development and operations, especially in the marketing, production and sale of our products, will increase significantly in the future.

If we are unable to secure additional financing to cover our operating losses until breakeven operations can be achieved, there is no assurance that we will be able to continue as a going concern. Our independent registered public accounting firm included a paragraph regarding going concern in its report on our audited financial statements for the year end July 31, 2013.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We currently do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Critical Accounting Policies, Convertible Notes Payable, Derivative Liabilities, and Assumptions

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. We believe that the following critical policies affect our more significant judgments and estimates used in preparation of our financial statements.

The Company has incurred deferred offering costs in connection with raising additional capital through the sale of its common stock. These costs are capitalized and charged against additional paid-in capital when common stock is issued. If there is no issuance of common stock, the costs incurred are charged to operations.

Research and development costs are charged to operations when incurred and are included in operating expenses.

4 Contractual Obligations



We have entered into a consulting agreement effective December 31, 2012 with Novation Consulting Services, Inc., which remains in effect.
