General Overview

Forex International Trading Corp. (the "Company") was incorporated on July 22, 2009 under the laws of the State of Nevada and is headquartered in El Segundo, California. The Company's principal business activities have been to engage in foreign currency market trading for non-US resident professionals and retail clients over its web-based trading systems. While these trading operations have been closed, the Company continues to operate in the consulting segment of the foreign currency market, leveraging its contacts and knowledge, and earned revenue in the first nine months of 2013 by leveraging its consulting expertise in the area of foreign exchange. In addition, the Company is analyzing investments in joint ventures and is selectively pursuing acquisitions.

On September 2, 2013, effective September 1, 2013, the Company entered into an Evaluation License Agreement (the "MDA Agreement") with Micrologic Design Automation, Inc. ("MDA"), pursuant to which MDA will temporarily license to the Company, on a non-exclusive and royalty-free basis, certain technology and related materials for any purpose related to evaluating NanoDRC, NanoRV and NanoLVS technology. The MDA Agreement expires on November 1, 2013 and contains standard confidentiality terms. Upon expiration of the MDA Agreement, the Company must return the licensed technology to MDA. In the event the Company breaches the confidentiality provision in the MDA Agreement, the Company is required to issue 300 million shares of common stock and deliver the shares to MDA. On November 6, 2013, the parties agreed to extend the MDA Agreement until December 31, 2013.

Table of Contents

The Forex Note maturity date is December 31, 2013, which can be extended by the Company for an additional one year at which point the 4% interest rate will increase to 10% per annum. The Forex Note may be prepaid without penalty. The Forex Note conversion price is the Variable Conversion Price, which is defined as 50% multiplied by the average of the lowest three trading prices of the Company's common stock on the OTCBB during the 10-day trading period ending on the latest complete day of trading on the OTCBB prior to the date of conversion. The Variable Conversion Price cannot be less than $0.002. At no time will Vulcan convert any amount of the Forex Note into common stock that would result in Vulcan owning more than 4.99% of the common stock outstanding of the Company.

The Vulcan Note has a 10% one-time interest charge on the principal sum. The interest rate will be increased by an additional 4% per annum (e.g. 14% per annum) in the event the principal is not paid by the December 31, 2013 maturity date. The collateral or security of the Vulcan Note is 50,000 watts of solar modules. The Vulcan Note may be prepaid without penalty.

After closing the Notes and recording of the difference as a debt discount, there are no further balances between the parties and the JV Agreement is null and void. The Company has received Vulcan's consent (subject to a fee to be negotiated upon the Company entering an agreement, with a minimum fee in the amount of the Funding) to begin negotiations with private groups to purchase certain knowledge and assets for the production of proprietary solar modules, directly or via third party. While management is of the opinion that these discussions may successfully produce agreements, there can be no guarantee of this.

We plan to raise working capital that will allow us to conduct our business for the next twelve months. There is no guarantee regarding our ability to raise that capital. We expect to use the proceeds to fund our short-term capital requirements including paying administrative expenses associated with maintaining our public company's filings for the next 12 months. In order to implement our business plan and pay various administrative expenses on a minimal basis for the next 12 months, we expect that we will need approximately $25,000 per month, minimum. We expect to be able to remain in operations for a period of 12 months with cash on hand and/or cash from collecting receivables and/or other debts. The Company expects that its operating results will fluctuate significantly from quarter to quarter in the future and will depend on a number of factors including the state of the worldwide economy and financial markets, which are outside the Company's control.

Debt Financing Arrangements

a) Convertible Notes Payable

On October 6, 2009, the Company signed a note payable for $25,000 to Rasel Ltd due on October 6, 2010, bearing interest at 4% per annum. The proceeds were used to pay for half of existing accounts payable for legal fees incurred at the Company's inception. On October 20, 2009, the Company signed a note payable for $50,000 payable to Rasel due on October 20, 2010, bearing interest at 4% per annum (collectively, the "Rasel Note"). These proceeds were used to pay for startup costs, audit fees and future expenses. On January 22, 2010, the Company signed a note payable for $50,000 payable to Rasel due on October 30, 2011, bearing interest at 4% per annum. These proceeds were used for working capital and expenditures. On January 22, 2010, the Company signed an amendment to extend the maturity date of the promissory notes in the amount of $25,000 and $50,000 dated October 6, 2009 and October 20, 2009, respectively, to October 30, 2011. On March 2, 2011, the Company and Rasel agreed to extend the maturity of all notes to December 31, 2012, in consideration of adding a conversion feature to the notes with either a 5% discount to the market price or a fixed price of $0.60. The extension of maturity was effective as of December 30, 2010.

The balance of the notes as of June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, was $74,209 and $145,847, respectively, which includes accrued interest in the amounts of $22,097 and $20,847 at December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The note is currently in default since the beginning of 2013; and the Company will attempt to reach an amicable settlement with the counterparty.

b) Note Payable

On December 31, 2012, the Company converted a payable in the amount of $155,242 to a note payable. The note bears annual interest at 10%, and was to mature on December 31, 2012. The Company has negotiated an extension to the maturity date until December 31, 2013. The note is currently in default; the Company will attempt to reach an amicable settlement with the counterparty.

The balance at June 30, 2014 and December 31, 2013, including accrued interest, is $80,412 and $97,552, respectively. The note was reduced for revenue received during the quarter from the Note holder.

c) Issuance of note payable to third party

On July 24, 2013, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with a third party financing source ("Financer"), for the sale of an 8% convertible note in the principal amount of $42,500 (the "July 2013 Note"), of which $2,500 was for legal fees associated with the transaction. The financing closed on July 31, 2013.

The July 2013 Note bears interest at the rate of 8% per annum. All interest and principal must be repaid on April 29, 2014. The July 2013 Note is convertible into common stock, at Financer's option, at the greater of a 42% discount to the average of the three lowest closing bid prices of the common stock during the 10 trading day period prior to conversion or $0.00009. In the event the Company prepays the July 2013 Note in full, the Company is required to pay to Financer an amount in cash equal to all principal, interest and any other amounts owing multiplied by (i) 112% if prepaid during the period commencing on the closing date through 30 days thereafter, (ii) 121% if prepaid 31 days following the closing through 60 days following the closing and (iii) 126% if prepaid 61 days following the closing through 90 days following the closing and (iv) 131% if prepaid 91 days following the closing through 120 days following the closing and (v) 136% if prepaid 121 days following the closing through 150 days following the closing and (vi) 141% if prepaid 151 days following the closing through 180 days following the closing. After the expiration of 180 days following the date of the Note, the Company has no right of prepayment.

Financer has agreed to restrict its ability to convert the July 2013 Note and receive shares of common stock such that the number of shares of common stock held by them in the aggregate and their affiliates after such conversion or exercise does not exceed 9.99% of the then issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The total net proceeds the Company received from this offering was $42,500, less $2,500 in attorney's fees. As of the date of the July 2013 Note, the Company is obligated on the Note issued to Financer in connection with the offering. The July 2013 Note is a debt obligation arising other than in the ordinary course of business, which constitutes a direct financial obligation of the Company.

The Company claims an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act") for the private placement of these securities pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Act and/or Regulation D promulgated there under since, among other things, the transaction did not involve a public offering, Financer is an accredited investor, Financer had access to information about the Company and their investment, Financer took the securities for investment and not resale, and the Company took appropriate measures to restrict the transfer of the securities.

In April 2014, Financier converted the entire remaining note balance, and released the company from its debt, which is a zero balance. On or about June 3, 2014, the Company issued another note to the Financier payable for $32,500 ("June 2014 Note"), of which $2,500 was for legal fees associated with the transaction. The terms of the new note were similar to the terms described above, with a maturity of March 5, 2015.

The June 2014 Note bears interest at the rate of 8% per annum. All interest and principal must be repaid on March 5, 2015. The June 2014 Note is convertible into common stock, at Financer's option, at the greater of a 42% discount to the average of the three lowest closing bid prices of the common stock during the 10 trading day period prior to conversion or $0.00001. In the event the Company prepays the June 2014 Note in full, the Company is required to pay to Financer an amount in cash equal to all principal, interest and any other amounts owing multiplied by (i) 112% if prepaid during the period commencing on the closing date through 30 days thereafter, (ii) 121% if prepaid 31 days following the closing through 60 days following the closing and (iii) 126% if prepaid 61 days following the closing through 90 days following the closing and (iv) 131% if prepaid 91 days following the closing through 120 days following the closing and (v) 136% if prepaid 121 days following the closing through 150 days following the closing and (vi) 141% if prepaid 151 days following the closing through 180 days following the closing. After the expiration of 180 days following the date of the Note, the Company has no right of prepayment

Financer has agreed to restrict its ability to convert the June 2014 Note and receive shares of common stock such that the number of shares of common stock held by them in the aggregate and their affiliates after such conversion or exercise does not exceed 9.99% of the then issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The total net proceeds the Company received from this offering were $32,500, less $2,500 in attorney's fees pursuant to the terms of this convertible agreement. As of the date of the June 2014 Note, the Company is obligated on the Note issued to Financer in connection with the offering. The June 2014 Note is a debt obligation arising other than in the ordinary course of business, which constitutes a direct financial obligation of the Company.

The Company claims an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act") for the private placement of these securities pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Act and/or Regulation D promulgated there under since, among other things, the transaction did not involve a public offering, Financer is an accredited investor, Financer had access to information about the Company and their investment, Financer took the securities for investment and not resale, and the Company took appropriate measures to restrict the transfer of the securities.

d) Third Party Note Payable

On May 13, 2014, the Company entered into an agreement with a third party financing source ("Financier 2"), for the issuance of an 8% convertible note in the principal amount of $147,625 (the "May 2014 Note"). In conjunction with the issuance of the May 2014 Note, an existing note holder (Rasel, owner of the Rasel Notes) agreed to have the proceeds of the May 2014 Note used to offset the amounts owed to them as evidenced by the Assignment of Convertible Debenture agreement dated May 12, 2014, between the holders of the Rasel Notes and Financier 2. The Assignment of Convertible Debenture agreement calls for the Financier 2 to make two payments of $73,812.50 each to the existing note holder (Rasel Notes). On May 13, 2014, the Financier 2 made the first payment to the existing note holder (Rasel Notes), however, Financier 2 defaulted on their obligation to make the second payment per the Assignment of Convertible Debenture agreement. As a result, Forex and Financier 2 have mutually agreed to release Financier 2 from its' obligation for the second payment, and the other half of the note in the amount of $73,812.50 reverted back to Rasel.

The May 2104 Note is convertible into common stock, at Financer 2's option, at the greater of a 42% discount to the average of the three lowest closing bid prices of the common stock during the 10 trading day period prior to conversion or $0.0001.

Financer 2 has agreed to restrict its ability to convert the May 2014 Note and receive shares of common stock such that the number of shares of common stock held by them in the aggregate and their affiliates after such conversion or exercise does not exceed 4.99% of the then issued and outstanding shares of common stock. As of the date of the May 2014 Note, the Company is obligated on the Note issued to Financer 2 in connection with the offering. The May 2014 Note is a debt obligation arising other than in the ordinary course of business, which constitutes a direct financial obligation of the Company.

The Company claims an exemption from the registration requirements of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Act") for the private placement of these securities pursuant to Section 4(2) of the Act and/or Regulation D promulgated there under since, among other things, the transaction did not involve a public offering, Financer is an accredited investor, Financer had access to information about the Company and their investment, Financer took the securities for investment and not resale, and the Company took appropriate measures to restrict the transfer of the securities.

e) Convertible Note Payable

On January 7, 2013, effective December 31, 2012, the Company, JV and Vulcan entered an agreement pursuant to which the JV Agreement was terminated, the Company issued to Vulcan a 4% convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $500,000 (the "Forex Note") and Vulcan issued to the Company a 10% Secured and Collateralized Promissory Note in the principal amount of $400,000. The Company recognized a debt discount in the amount of $100,000 for the difference in the face value of the note issued and the note received from the same party. The face value of the note payable is shown net of the debt discount. This debt discount will be amortized over the one-year life of the note. The note has a maturity date of December 31, 2013, and can be extended by the Company for an additional one year at which point the 4% interest rate will increase to 10% per annum. The Forex Note may be prepaid without penalty. The Forex Note conversion price is the Variable Conversion Price, which is defined as 50% multiplied by the average of the lowest three trading prices of the Company's common stock on the OTCBB during the 10-day trading period ending on the latest complete day of trading on the OTCBB prior to the date of conversion. The Variable Conversion Price cannot be less than $0.002. At no time will Vulcan convert any amount of the Forex Note into common stock that would result in Vulcan owning more than 4.99% of the common stock outstanding of the Company.

As of December 31, 2013, the entire debt discount has been amortized in the accompanying financial statements, and $20,000 of interest expense was accrued during the year ended December 31, 2013. Another $25,000 of interest expense was accrued in the six months ended June 30, 2014. The Company is negotiating an offset of the Forex Note against the note receivable from Vulcan as final satisfaction, and will recognize a gain or loss on its financial statements at that time. As of June 30, 2014, the Company has not reached an agreement with Vulcan for offsetting of the notes, and the Vulcan Note is currently in default.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

The Company does not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on the Company's financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

Our financial statements and related public financial information are based on the application of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). GAAP requires the use of estimates; assumptions, judgments and subjective interpretations of accounting principles that have an impact on the assets, liabilities, revenues and expense amounts reported. These estimates can also affect supplemental information contained in our external disclosures including information regarding contingencies, risk and financial condition. We believe our use of estimates and underlying accounting assumptions adhere to GAAP and are consistently and conservatively applied. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ materially from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We continue to monitor significant estimates made during the preparation of our financial statements.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Significant estimates include the useful lives of tangible and intangible assets, depreciation and amortization, allowances for doubtful accounts and loan losses, valuation of common and preferred stock issuances, and the valuation allowance on deferred tax assets. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid financial instruments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

Notes and Short-Term Receivable

The notes and short-term receivable are carried at cost, which approximates fair value. The Company measures the impairment of loans based on its historical loan collection experience and existing economic conditions. Impairment is recognized when management believes it is probable that payments will not be received on some portion of the loan, which is determined on an individual loan basis. The Company evaluates loans for impairment on an annual basis or when there are indications that the loan may not be collected. When management determines that a loan is impaired it is placed on non-accrual status, and an allowance for loan losses is established to recognize the estimated amount of impairment. Payments received on non-accrual loans are generally applied to the outstanding principal balance. Loans are removed from non-accrual status when management believes that the borrower will resume making the payments required by the loan agreement.

Revenue Recognition

Income from foreign currency operations is earned by referring potential customers to foreign exchange trading companies. Foreign exchange trading companies remit a percentage of their revenues to the Company in exchange for customer leads, which the Company recognizes when the exchange trading occurs.

The Company recognizes consulting fees when services have been rendered.

Share-Based Compensation

The Company calculates stock-based compensation expense including compensation expense for all share-based payment awards made to employees and directors including employee stock options, stock appreciation rights and restricted stock awards based on their estimated grant date fair values. The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as an expense on a straight-line basis over any required service period. No such expenses were recognized for the three months or for the six months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013.

Loss Per Share

Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net loss available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted loss per share considers the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or could otherwise cause the issuance of common stock, such as options, convertible notes and convertible preferred stock, were exercised or converted into common stock or could otherwise cause the issuance of common stock that then shared in loss. Such potential additional common shares are included in the computation of diluted earnings per share. Diluted loss per share has not been computed for the three months ended June 30, 2014 and 2013 because any potential additional common shares would reduce the reported loss per share and therefore have an antidilutive effect.

Dividends

The Company has not yet adopted any policy regarding payment of dividends. No dividends have been paid or declared since the Date of Inception.
