Note 11:  Limited Liability Company

On September 20, 2010, the Company entered into a joint venture agreement between the Company and Dr. Shulamit Ritblatt to form Circle of Education, LLC (COE), a California limited liability company, for the purpose of creation and distribution of a curriculum to promote school readiness for children ages 0-5 years.  The Company obtained an initial voting and economic interest of seventy-five percent of the outstanding units of the newly formed company in exchange for the contribution of all intellectual property rights the Company had in the Circle of Education program.  Circle of Education, LLC was formed on September 24, 2010.

The Company consolidated the results for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2011 with the results of COE.  As the Company had an economic interest of 75 percent of the total subsidiary for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011, the Company recognized 100 percent of the loss and recorded 25 percent of the loss, or $5,366, as noncontrolling interest on the financial statements for the twelve months ended December 31, 2011.

In March 2012, the Company and Dr. Shulamit Ritblatt agreed to terminate the joint venture agreement.  COE transferred equal right of ownership in the intellectual property developed as of the date of termination (“IP”) to each of the Company and Dr. Ritblatt, and in exchange for the rights to the IP, Dr. Ritblatt transferred her units of COE to the Company.  Each party has the right to continue development of the IP and products based on the IP with no further obligation to the other party.  Subject to certain limitations for specific channels of distribution reserved for each party for a period of twelve months from the execution of the agreements, both parties have non-exclusive and non-restrictive rights to the use, sublicense or sale of the IP and products created based on the IP.

On May 2, 2012, the Board of Directors approved the cancellation of the California Limited Liability Company.  The cancellation is pending approval by the California Secretary of State.
