We were incorporated as mCig, Inc. (mCig) in the State of Nevada on December 30, 2010 originally under the name Lifetech Industries, Inc. Effective August 2, 2013, our name was changed from ” Lifetech Industries, Inc. ” to ” mCig, Inc. ” reflecting our new business model. Since October 2013, we have positioned ourselves as a technology company focused on two long-term secular trends sweeping the globe: (1) The decriminalization and legalization of marijuana for medicinal or recreational purposes (2) The adoption of electronic vaporizing cigarettes (commonly known as “eCigs”) by the world’s smokers. The FDA has indicated that e-cigarettes and their potential risks have not been fully studied. Since e-cigarettes are new, their long-term effects are not well known, including the potential risks of e-cigarettes when used as intended and how many potentially harmful chemicals are being inhaled during use. However, even with the limited research that we have now, it is well known that e-cigarettes are still much safer and healthier than traditional cigarettes. The largest health benefit of e-cigarettes is when used as a smoking cessation tool. The leading cause of disease from smokers is caused by the tar found in cigarettes, which e-cigarettes do not have.
On January 23, 2014, through a Stock Purchase Agreement with Vapolution, Inc., we made a down payment towards the acquisition of Vapolution, Inc. Upon closing of this transaction on January 23, 2015 we can acquire all of Vapolution, Inc.’s issued and outstanding shares in exchange for an aggregate of 5,000,000 shares of our common stock at a market value of $0.25 per share on the date of the closing of the acquisition. Upon closing the acquisition January 23, 2015, Vapolution will become a wholly owned subsidiary. The shareholders of Vapolution, Inc. retain the right to rescind the transaction on or before January 23, 2015.
On January 23, 2014, Paul Rosenberg, our Chief Executive Officer, cancelled an equal amount (2,500,000 shares) of common shares owned by him resulting in a net non-dilutive transaction to our existing shareholders. The remaining 2,500,000 of common shares owned by Paul Rosenberg will be cancelled on the one year anniversary of the agreement on January 23, 2015, to offset the 2,500,000 new shares to be issued from the treasury for the completion of the acquisition of Vapolution. Since only half of the agreed upon shares had been paid out by us to the previous owners of Vapolution, Inc. as on July 31, 2014 as part of the agreed upon purchase price, only half of the purchase price ($625,000) was reported on our balance sheet as Investment in Vapolution, Inc. at the quarter end date. The remaining purchase price of 2,500,000 shares of our common stock will be recognized in the amount of $625,000 on our balance sheet on the commencement date of January 23, 2015. At that time, we intend to satisfy all requirements necessary to consolidate Vapolution audited year-end results as part of our financials. On May 23, 2014, the parties to the agreement agreed to amend the original Stock Purchase Agreement. Per the amended Stock Purchase Agreement executed as of May 23, 2014, a clarification was made to the agreement that more appropriately expresses the spirit of the transaction as agreed upon by us g and the previous owners of Vapolution, Inc.
On November 28, 2014, we completed the spin-off of VitaCig, Inc. (the “Spin-off”). Effective as of 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on November 28, 2014 (the “Distribution Date”), we distributed 270,135,000 shares of common stock of VitaCig, Inc., par value $0.0001 per share (“VitaCig Common Stock”), to holders of our stockholders of record as a pro rata dividend. The Record Date for the dividend was November 28, 2014. The Ex-Dividend Date was set for November 25, 2014. Our stockholders received one share of VitCig Common Stock for every one share of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of our company. The Spin-off was completed for the purpose of legally and structurally separating VitaCig, Inc. from mCig. We retained 230,000,000 shares of common stock and remain as a controlling shareholder. The shares of common stock to be received by our shareholders were registered on a Form S-1 filed by VitaCig and declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 5, 2014.
As part of its business plan, management is looking to acquire interests in all or part of related business entities, increase its employee and consultant base through engaging personnel knowledgeable in our field,, release new products, filing patents, and establish retail outlets. At this time, any discussions are preliminary and there can be no assurances that any acquisitions will be finalized. For example, we have appointed Michael Snody to the position of Chief Research and Development Officer. Mr. Snody will run our company’s new metalworks and hardware division and this will be the first division that concentrates on American-made products. On December 11, 2014, together with our 47% owned affiliate VitaCig, Inc., we launched a jointly operated retail outlet at the world renowned Dolby Theater (formerly known as the Kodak Theatre) located in the heart of Hollywood alongside the “Walk of Fame”, at the Hollywood & Highland Mall.
SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
We prepare our consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Significant accounting policies are as follows:
Use of Estimates and Assumptions
The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect (i) the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, (ii) the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities known to exist as of the date the consolidated financial statements are published, and (iii) the reported amount of net revenues and expenses recognized during the periods presented. Adjustments made with respect to the use of estimates often relate to improved information not previously available. Uncertainties with respect to such estimates and assumptions are inherent in the preparation of consolidated financial statements; accordingly, actual results could differ from these estimates. Our most significant estimates relate to the valuation of its proprietary technology and its valuation of its common stock.
We measure the cost of services received in exchange for an award of an equity instrument based on the grant-date fair value of the award. Compensation cost is recognized over the vesting or requisite service period.
Basic and Diluted Net Income (Loss) per Common Share
Basic income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of our common shares outstanding during the reporting period. The weighted average number of shares is calculated by taking the number of shares outstanding and weighting them by the amount of time that they were outstanding. Diluted earnings per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if stock options, warrants, and other commitments to issue common stock were exercised or equity awards vest resulting in the issuance of common stock that could share in the earnings of the Company. We have 23,000,000 preferred shares that can be converted subject to the limitation of our authorized shares at 1 preferred share for 10 common shares. The conversion can only take place after April 15, 2015.
Diluted loss per share is the same as basic loss per share during periods where net losses are incurred since the inclusion of the potential common stock equivalents would be anti-dilutive as a result of the net loss.
Our revenue recognition policy is in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, which requires the recognition of sales when there is evidence of a sales agreement, the delivery of goods has occurred, the sales price is fixed or determinable and the collectability of revenue is reasonably assured.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
We expect to incur substantial expenses and generate significant operating losses as we continue to grow our operations, as well as incur expenses related to operating as a public company and compliance with regulatory requirements. At October 31, 2014, we had cash of $284,120.
We have an accumulated deficit at October 31, 2014 of $2,217,378 and need additional cash flows to maintain our operations. We depend on the continued contributions of our executive officers to finance our operations and need to obtain additional funding sources to explore potential strategic relationships and to provide capital and other resources for the further development and marketing of our products and business. We expect our cash needs for the next 12 months to be $250,000 to fund our operations. Our ability of to continue its operations is dependent on the successful execution of management’s plans, which include expectations of raising debt or equity based capital until such time that funds from operations are sufficient to fund working capital requirements. We may need to incur additional liabilities with related parties to sustain our company’s existence. There is no assurance that such funding, if required will be available to us or, if available, will be available upon terms favorable to us.
Sources of Cash
The Company has advances from our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operating Officer of an aggregate of $13,000.
We believe that our existing cash and investment balances, our ability to issue new debt instruments, and cash generated from operations will be sufficient to meet our working capital and capital expenditure requirements. Our strategy emphasizes organic growth through internal innovation and will be complemented by acquisitions that fit strategically and meet specific internal profitability hurdles.
