ATLANTICA INC - 10-Q - Management's Discussions and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

August 6, 2014

Forward-looking Statements

Statements made in this Quarterly Report, which are not purely historical, are forward-looking statements with respect to the goals, plan objectives, intentions, expectations, financial condition, results of operations, future performance and our business, including, without limitation, (i) our ability to raise capital, and (ii) statements preceded by, followed by or that include the words "may," "would," "could," "should," "expects," "projects," "anticipates," "believes," "estimates," "plans," "intends," "targets" or similar expressions.

Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties, and actual results may differ materially from those set forth in the forward-looking statements, depending upon a number of factors, many of which are beyond our control. These factors include, but are not limited to, the following: general economic or industry conditions; nationally and/or in the communities in which we may conduct business; changes in the interest rate environment; legislation or regulatory requirements; conditions of the securities markets; our ability to raise capital; changes in accounting principles, policies or guidelines; financial or political instability; acts of war or terrorism; and other economic, competitive, governmental, regulatory and technical factors affecting our current or potential business and related matters.

Accordingly, results actually achieved may differ materially from expected results in these statements. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made. We do not undertake, and specifically disclaim, any obligation to update any forward-looking statements to reflect events or circumstances occurring after the date of such statements.

Plan of Operation

Our plan of operation for the next 12 months is to: (i) consider guidelines of industries in which we may have an interest; (ii) adopt a business plan regarding engaging in the business of any selected industry; and (iii) to commence such operations through funding and/or the acquisition of a going concern engaged in any industry selected.

We are not currently engaged in any substantive business activity. In our present form, we may be deemed to be a vehicle to acquire or merge with a business or company. Regardless, the commencement of any business opportunity will be preceded by the consideration and adoption of a business plan by our Board of Directors. We do not intend to restrict our search for business opportunities to any particular business or industry, and the areas in which we will seek out business opportunities or acquisitions, reorganizations or mergers may include, but will not be limited to, the fields of high technology, manufacturing, natural resources, service, research and development, communications, transportation, insurance, brokerage, finance and all medically related fields, among others. We recognize that the number of suitable potential business ventures that may be available to our Company may be extremely limited, and may be restricted to entities who desire to avoid what such entities may deem to be the adverse factors related to an initial public offering ("IPO"). The most prevalent of these factors include substantial time requirements, legal and accounting costs, the inability to obtain an underwriter who is willing to publicly offer and sell shares, the lack of or the inability to obtain the required financial statements for such an undertaking, limitations on the amount of dilution to public investors in comparison to the stockholders of any such entities, along with other conditions or requirements imposed by various federal and state securities laws, rules and regulations and federal and state agencies that implement such laws, rules and regulations. Any of these types of transactions, regardless of the particular prospect, would require us to issue a substantial number of shares of our common stock, that could amount to as much as 95% of our outstanding securities following the completion of any such transaction; accordingly, investments in any such private enterprise, if available, would be much more favorable than any investment in our Company.

Management intends to consider a number of factors prior to making any decision as to whether to participate in any specific business endeavor, none of which may be determinative or provide any assurance of success. These may include, but will not be limited to, as applicable, an analysis of the quality of the particular entity's management personnel; the anticipated acceptability of any new products or marketing concepts that it may have; the merit of its technological changes; its present financial condition, projected growth potential and available technical, financial and managerial resources; its working capital, history of operations and future prospects; the nature of its present and expected competition; the quality and experience of its management services and the depth of its management; its potential for further research, development or exploration; risk factors specifically related to its business operations; its potential for growth, expansion and profit; the perceived public recognition or acceptance of its products, services, trademarks and name identification; and numerous other factors which are difficult, if not impossible, to properly or accurately analyze, let alone describe or identify, without referring to specific objective criteria.

Regardless, the results of operations of any specific entity may not necessarily be indicative of what may occur in the future, by reason of changing market strategies, plant or product expansion, changes in product emphasis, future management personnel and changes in innumerable other factors. Further, in the case of a new business venture or one that is in a research and development mode, the risks will be substantial, and there will be no objective criteria to examine the effectiveness or the abilities of its management or its business objectives. Also, a firm market for its products or services may yet need to be established, and with no past track record, the profitability of any such entity will be unproven and cannot be predicted with any certainty.

Our management will attempt to meet personally with management and key personnel of any entity providing any potential business opportunity afforded to our Company, visit and inspect material facilities, obtain independent analysis or verification of information provided and gathered, check references of management and key personnel and conduct other reasonably prudent measures calculated to ensure a reasonably thorough review of any particular business opportunity; however, due to time constraints of management, these activities may be limited.

We are unable to predict the time as to when and if we may actually participate in any specific business endeavor. We anticipate that proposed business ventures will be made available to us through personal contacts of directors, executive officers and principal stockholders, professional advisors, broker dealers in securities, venture capital personnel, members of the financial community and others who may present unsolicited proposals. In certain cases, we may agree to pay a finder's fee or to otherwise compensate the persons who submit a potential business endeavor in which we eventually participate. Such persons may include our directors, executive officers and beneficial owners our securities or their affiliates. In this regard, see the description of our Management Services Agreement with Richland, Gordon & Company contained in Note 6 to the Unaudited Financial Statements dated June 30, 2014 in Part I, Item 1. In this event, such fees may become a factor in negotiations regarding any potential venture and, accordingly, may present a conflict of interest for such individuals.

Substantial fees are often paid in connection with the completion of all types of acquisitions, reorganizations or mergers, ranging from a small amount to as much as $400,000 or more. These fees are usually divided among promoters or founders, after deduction of legal, accounting and other related expenses, and it is not unusual for a portion of these fees to be paid to members of management or to principal stockholders as consideration for their agreement to retire a portion of the shares of common stock owned by them. Members of management may actively negotiate or otherwise consent to the purchase of all or any portion of their common stock as a condition to, or in connection with, a proposed reorganization, merger or acquisition. It is not anticipated that any such opportunity will be afforded to other stockholders or that such other stockholders will be afforded the opportunity to approve or consent to any particular stock buy-out transaction. In the event that any such fees are paid, they may become a factor in negotiations regarding any potential acquisition or merger by our Company and, accordingly, may also present a conflict of interest for such individuals. Any of these types of fees that are paid in shares of our common stock will also be subject to the resale limitations embodied in the recent amendments to Rule 144 that prohibit, among other requirements, the public resale of these shares until 12 months after the filing of the Form 10 information with the SEC. We have no present arrangements or understandings respecting any of these types of fees or opportunities, other than pursuant to our management services agreement with Richland, Gordon & Company. See the description of our management services agreement with Richland contained in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2008, and a copy of that agreement included in Part IV, Item 15 of that Report, with respect to, among other things, certain cash fees that may be payable by us to Richland in connection with future financings and business combinations by us.

Liquidity

We have no current cash resources.

During the next 12 months, our only foreseeable cash requirements will relate to maintaining our good standing in the State of Utah and our filing of all required reports under the securities laws. We do not have any cash reserves to pay for our administrative expenses for the next 12 months. In the event that additional funding is required in order to keep us in good standing and current in our reporting obligations, we may attempt to raise such funding through loans or through additional sales of our common stock.
