PART I



ITEM 1   BUSINESS



General


The business of Eat at Joe’s, Ltd. ( the “Company”) is to develop, own and operate theme restaurants called “Eat at Joe’s (R).”  The theme for the restaurants is an "American Diner" atmosphere where families can eat wholesome, home-cooked food in a safe friendly atmosphere.  Eat at Joe's, the classic American grill, is a restaurant concept that takes you back to eating in the era when favorite old rockers were playing on chrome-spangled jukeboxes and neon signs reflected on shiny tabletops of the 1950's.


The Company presently owns and operates one theme restaurant located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.  Expansion within the current location is not viable, however management may seek to make acquisitions of established businesses, or, if a desirable location becomes available, we may elect to expand the concept.  Locations would be sought in heavily trafficked areas, such as within an airport, train station, etc.  We have not found any such location as of the date of this filing and no agreements are in place. Any acquisitions would be subject to the availability of funding.  The restaurants will be modest priced restaurants catering to the local working and residential population rather than as a tourist destination.


The Company’s common stock is traded on the National Association of Security Dealers, Inc. (the “NASD’s”) OTC Bulletin Board Under the symbol “JOES.”


History


The company was incorporated as Conceptualistics, Inc. on January 6, 1988 in Delaware as a wholly owned subsidiary of Halter Venture Corporation ("HVC"), a publicly-owned corporation (now known as Debbie Reynolds Hotel and Casino, Inc.)  In 1988, HVC divested itself of approximately 14% of its holdings in the Company by distributing 1,777,000 shares of the issued and outstanding stock of the Company to its shareholders.  The then majority shareholder of HVC became the majority shareholder of the Company.  Its authorized capital stock is 50,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share.


During the period from September 30, 1988 to March 1, 1990, the company remained in the development stage while attempting to enter the mining industry.  The Company acquired certain unpatented mining claims and related equipment necessary to mine, extract, process and otherwise explore for kaolin clay, silica, feldspar, precious metals, antimony and other commercial minerals from its majority stockholder and unrelated third parties.  The Company was unsuccessful in these start up efforts and all activity ceased during 1992 as a result of foreclosure on various loans in default and/or abandonment of all assets.


From March 1, 1990 to January 1, 1997, the Company did not engage in any business activities.


On January 1, 1997, the Shareholders adopted a plan of reorganization and merger between the Company and E. A. J. Holding Corp. Inc. (“Hold”) to be effective on or before January 31, 1997.  Under the plan, the Company acquired all the issued and outstanding shares of “Hold”, a Delaware corporation making “Hold” a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company for 5,505,000 common shares of the Company.


In addition to its wholly owned subsidiary, Hold, the Company has thirteen wholly owned subsidiaries:


·

E.A.J. PHL Airport, Inc. a Pennsylvania corporation,

·

E.A.J. Shoppes, Inc., a Nevada corporation,

·

E.A.J. Cherry Hill, Inc., a Nevada corporation,



4






·

E.A.J. Neshaminy, Inc., a Nevada corporation,

·

E.A.J. PM, Inc., a Nevada corporation,

·

E.A.J. Echelon, Inc., a Nevada corporation,

·

E.A.J. Market East, Inc., a Nevada corporation,

·

E.A.J. MO, Inc., a Nevada corporation,

·

Branded Restaurant Group, Inc. (formerly E.A.J. Syracuse, Inc.), a Nevada corporation,

·

E.A.J. Walnut Street, Inc., a Nevada corporation,

·

E.A.J. Owings, Inc., a Nevada corporation.

·

1337855 Ontario Inc., an Ontario corporation,

·

1398926 Ontario Inc., an Ontario corporation.


On January 29, 2010, the Company filed certificates of dissolution with the State of Nevada for E.A.J. Echelon, Inc., E.A.J. Owings, Inc., and Regency Communications Group, Inc. (formerly E.A.J. Neshaminy, Inc.).

 

On April 14, 2011, the Company filed certificates of dissolution with the State of Nevada for E.A.J. Hold, Inc., E.A.J. PM, Inc., and Branded Restaurant Group, Inc. (formerly E.A.J. Syracuse, Inc.).


Each of the subsidiaries was organized to operate a single restaurant.  The Company presently owns and operates one theme restaurant located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and operated under the subsidiary E.A.J. PHL Airport Inc.  The Company is attempting to make at least one acquisition during the next 12 months, subject to the availability of funding.  All restaurants will be located in high traffic locations.  The restaurants will be modest priced restaurants catering to the local working and residential population rather than as a tourist destination.


All administrative activities of the Company have been conducted by corporate officers from either their home or shared business offices located at 670 White Plains Road, Suite 120, Scarsdale, NY 10583.  Currently, there are no outstanding debts owed by the Company for the use of these facilities and there are no commitments for future use of the facilities.


OPERATING LOSSES


The Company has incurred net income (losses) from operations of approximately $42,000 and $46,000 for the years ended December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively.  Such operating income and losses reflect developmental and other administrative costs for 2011 and 2010.  The Company expects to incur losses in the near future until profitability is achieved.  The Company’s operations are subject to numerous risks associated with establishing any new business, including unforeseen expenses, delays and complications.  There can be no assurance that the Company will achieve or sustain profitable operations or that it will be able to remain in business.


FUTURE CAPITAL NEEDS AND UNCERTAINTY OF ADDITIONAL FUNDING


 Revenues are not yet sufficient to support the Company’s operating expenses and are not expected to reach such levels until the company implements a plan of expansion.  Since the Company’s formation, it has funded its operations and capital expenditures primarily through private placements of debt and equity securities.  The Company expects that it will be required to seek additional financing in the future.  There can be no assurance that such financing will be available at all or available on terms acceptable to the Company.


GOVERNMENT REGULATION


The Company is subject to all pertinent Federal, State, and Local laws governing its business.  Each Eat at Joe’s is subject to licensing and regulation by a number of authorities in its State or municipality.  These may include health, safety, and fire regulations.  The Company’s operations are also subject to Federal and State minimum wage laws governing such matters as working conditions, overtime and tip credits.


COMPETITION


The Company faces competition from a wide variety of food distributors, many of which have substantially greater financial, marketing and technological resources than the Company.

EMPLOYEES


As of March 29, 2012, the Company had approximately 11 employees, none of whom is represented by a labor union.


ITEM 1A   RISK FACTORS



RISK OF LOW-PRICED STOCKS


Rules 15g-1 through 15g-9 promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) impose sales practice and disclosure requirements on certain brokers and dealers who engage in certain transactions involving “a penny stock.”


Currently, the Company’s Common Stock is considered a penny stock for purposes of the Exchange Act.  The additional sales practice and disclosure requirements imposed on certain brokers and dealers could impede the sale of the Company’s Common Stock in the secondary market.  In addition, the market liquidity for the Company’s securities may be severely adversely affected, with concomitant adverse effects on the price of the Company’s securities.


Under the penny stock regulations, a broker or dealer selling penny stock to anyone other than an established customer or “accredited investor” (generally, an individual with net worth in excess of $1,000,000 or annual incomes exceeding $200,000, or $300,000 together with his or her spouse) must make a special suitability determination for the purchaser and must receive the purchaser’s written consent to the transaction prior to sale, unless the broker or dealer or the transaction is otherwise exempt.  In addition, the penny stock regulations require the broker or dealer to deliver, prior to any transaction involving a penny stock, a disclosure schedule prepared by the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) relating to the penny stock market, unless the broker or dealer or the transaction is otherwise exempt.  A broker or dealer is also required to disclose commissions payable to the broker or dealer and the registered representative and current quotations for the Securities.  In addition, a broker or dealer is required to send monthly statements disclosing recent price information with respect to the penny stock held in a customer’s account and information with respect to the limited market in penny stocks.


LACK OF TRADEMARK AND PATENT PROTECTION


The Company relies on a combination of trade secret, copyright and trademark law, nondisclosure agreements and technical security measures to protect its products.  Notwithstanding these safeguards, it is possible for competitors of the company to obtain its trade secrets and to imitate its products.  Furthermore, others may independently develop products similar or superior to those developed or planned by the Company.



ITEM 1B   UNRESOLVED STAFF COMMENTS



There are no unresolved staff comments.



ITEM 2   PROPERTIES


All administrative activities of the Company have been conducted by corporate officers from either their home or shared business offices located at 670 White Plains Road, Suite 120, Scarsdale, NY 10583.  Currently, there are no outstanding debts owed by the Company for the use of these facilities and there are no commitments for future use of the facilities.

The Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary E.A.J. PHL Airport, Inc. leases approximately 845 square feet in the Philadelphia Airport, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania pursuant to a lease dated July 6, 2010.  E.A.J. PHL Airport pays $14,000 per month basic rent plus 20% of gross revenues above $1,200,000 under the lease which expires April 30, 2017.

ITEM 7   MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS


Plan of Operations - Eat at Joe's Ltd. Intends to open and operate theme restaurants styled in an "American Diner" atmosphere where families can eat wholesome, home cooked food in a safe friendly atmosphere.  Eat at Joe's, the classic American grill, is a restaurant concept that takes you back to eating in the era when favorite old rockers were playing on chrome-spangled jukeboxes and neon signs reflected on shiny tabletops of the 1950's.  Eat at Joe's fulfills the diner dream with homey ambiance that's affordable while providing food whose quality and variety is such you can eat there over and over, meal after meal.  To build on the diner experience, a retail section in each Eat at Joe's would allow customers to take the good feelings home with them, in the form of 50's memorabilia.


The Company's expansion strategy is to open restaurants either through Joint Venture agreements or Company owned units.  Units may consist of a combination of full service restaurants or food court locations.  Restaurant construction will take from 90-150 days to complete on a leased site.


In considering site locations, the Company concentrates on trade demographics, such as traffic volume, accessibility and visibility.  High Visibility Malls and Strip Malls in densely populated suburbs are the preferred locations.  The Company also scrutinizes the potential competition and the profitability of national restaurant chains in the target market area.  As part of the expansion program, the Company will inspect and approve each site before approval of any joint venture or partnership.


A typical food court unit is approximately 500 square feet, whereas for a full service operation it is approximately 3,500 square feet.  Food court operation consists of a limited menu.  A full service restaurant consists of 30-35 tables seating about 140-150 people.  The bar area will hold 6-8 tables and seats 30-35 people.


The restaurant industry is an intensely competitive one, where price, service, location, and food quality are critical factors.  The Company has many established competitors, ranging from similar casual-style chains to local single unit operations.  Some of these competitors have substantially greater financial resources and may be established or indeed become established in areas where the Eat at Joe's Company operates.  The restaurant industry may be affected by changes in customer tastes, economic, demographic trends, and traffic patterns.  Factors such as inflation, increased supplies costs and the availability of suitable employees may adversely affect the restaurant industry in general and the Eat at Joe's Company Restaurant in particular.  Significant numbers of the Eat at Joe's personnel are paid at rates related to the federal minimum wage and accordingly, any changes in this would affect the Company's labor costs.


Over the next twelve months, the company will maintain operations as they currently exist.  We do not anticipate the hiring of new full-time employees or the need for additional funds to satisfy cash requirements.  Expansion within the current location is not viable, however management may seek to make acquisitions of established businesses, or, if a desirable location becomes available, we may elect to expand the concept.  Locations would be sought in heavily trafficked areas, such as within an airport, train station, etc.  We have not found any such location as of the date of this filing and no agreements are in place.


Results of Operations - For the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, the Company had net income (loss) from operations of approximately $42,000 and $46,000, respectively.


Total Revenues - For the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, the Company had total sales of  approximately $1,078,000 and $1,241,000 respectively, for an decrease of approximately $163,000.  The decrease was mainly due to the restaurant closing for renovation from February 2011 to May 2011, and the general state of the economy.  



8






Management believes revenues will grow in the future as airport traffic increases.


Costs and Expenses - Costs of revenues, which include the costs of food, beverage, and kitchen supplies decreased as a percentage of sales by approximately 4% from 2010 to 2011.  This decrease can be attributed to several factors, including, but not limited to rebates from manufacturers (off of invoices), the stabilization of dairy products and the streamlining of the menu with a movement to higher profit menu items and the elimination of certain menu items with higher food costs.  


The cost of labor increased 3% as a percentage of sales from 2010 to 2011.  There were no sales for a little over three months while the restaurant was closed for renovations.  However, managers were paid during this time in order to have a company representative on location at all times during construction and there were some part-time employees paid to help clean out the restaurant just prior to construction and were also paid to help restock the restaurant prior to reopening. Also, in 2011 the company began having at least two employees in the restaurant at all times whereas in 2010 there was one employee in the restaurant during the early hours of approximately 4 am to 6 am.


The cost of rent remained constant as a percentage of sales from 2010 to 2011.   E.A.J. PHL Airport pays $14,000 per month basic rent plus 20% of gross revenues above $1,200,000 under the lease.  The rent is a fixed cost and sales are variable, so the total rent paid varies from year to year.  


Depreciation and amortization expense increased approximately $23,000 from 2010 to 2011.  This increase is attributable to the renovation and purchase of new equipment.  Depreciation expense will increase as these plans are completed.


General and administrative expenses decreased 1% as a percentage of sales from 2010 to 2011.  This decrease is mainly attributable to the restaurant being closed for three months for remodeling, and a decrease in other professional services in 2011 as compared to 2010.  


Interest income and dividend income decreased from 2010 to 2011.  Interest income decreased approximately $3,150 and dividend income decreased approximately $15 from 2010 to 2011.  There was less interest due to lower interest rates and lower cash balances.  


Interest expense increased approximately $1,300 from 2010 to 2011.  This increase is due to the continuing interest being accrued on notes payable from prior years and the interest on the new notes payable from 2010 and 2011.


The unrealized gain (loss) on trading securities decreased from a loss of $187,662 in 2010 to a loss of $105,026 in 2011.  This change was due to the increasing value of trading securities during 2011.


The realized gain (loss) from the sale of marketable securities changed from a loss of $138,645 in 2010 to a gain of $54,317 in 2011.  This change was due to the increasing value of the trading securities being sold.


During 2010, the Company recognized $112,139 of expense related to the write-off of notes receivable that were deemed to be uncollectible by the Company.  


The Company recognized impairment loss of $90,019 in 2010 related to the available-for-sale securities that were determined to be impaired, and were written down to their current market value.  


LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES


As of December 31, 2011, the Company has a working capital deficit of approximately $3,770,308.  The Company's continued existence is dependent upon its ability to execute its operating plan and to obtain additional debt or equity financing.  There can be no assurance the necessary debt or equity financing will be available, or will be available on terms acceptable to the Company.




9






Management’s plans include searching for and opening new restaurants in the future and obtaining additional financing to fund payment of obligations and to provide working capital for operations and to finance future growth.  The Company is actively pursuing alternative financing and has had discussions with various third parties, although no firm commitments have been obtained.  In the interim, shareholders of the Company have committed to meeting its operating expenses.  Management believes these efforts will generate sufficient cash flows from future operations to pay the Company’s obligations and realize other assets.  There is no assurance any of these transactions will occur.


The Company has met its capital requirements through the sale of its Common Stock, Convertible Preferred Stock, Convertible Debentures and Notes Payable.


Since the Company's re-activation in January, 1997, the Company's principal capital  requirements have been the funding of (i) the development of the Company and its 1950's diner style  concept, (ii) the construction of its existing units and the acquisition of the furniture, fixtures and equipment therein and (iii) towards the development of additional units.


During 2011 and 2010, the Company generated (used) approximately ($334,000) and  $155,000, respectfully, in cash from investing activities from the purchase and sale of marketable equity securities and the purchase of property and equipment.  As of December 31, 2011, the company owns marketable securities valued at approximately $494,000 with $1,194,859 in corresponding liabilities.


During 2011 and 2010, the Company has raised approximately $0 and $0 through short-term notes payable and advances from majority stockholders.  The net proceeds to the Company were used for working capital.  During 2011 and 2010, the company repaid $302,500 and $240,000 in related party loans from past years.  As of December 31, 2011, approximately $1,141,000 in advances was due to Joseph Fiore, C.E.O. of the Company.


For the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010, cash flows from operating activities provided (used) approximately $54,000 and $58,000, respectively.


After the completion of its expansion plans, the Company expects future development and expansion will be financed through cash flow from operations and other forms of financing such as the sale of additional equity and debt securities, capital leases and other credit facilities.  There are no assurances that such financing will be available on terms acceptable or favorable to the Company.  


Government Regulations - The Company is subject to all pertinent Federal, State, and Local laws governing its business.  Each Eat at Joe's is subject to licensing and regulation by a number of authorities in its State or municipality.  These may include health, safety, and fire regulations.  The Company's operations are also subject to Federal and State minimum wage laws governing such matters as working conditions, overtime and tip credits.


Critical Accounting Policies -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 the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities of the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Note 1 to the Consolidated Financial Statements describes the significant accounting policies and methods used in the preparation of the Consolidated Financial Statements. Estimates are used for, but not limited to, contingencies and taxes.  Actual results could differ materially from those estimates. The following critical accounting policies are impacted significantly by judgments, assumptions, and estimates used in the preparation of the Consolidated Financial Statements.


We are subject to various loss contingencies arising in the ordinary course of business.  We consider the likelihood of loss or impairment of an asset or the incurrence of a liability, as well as our ability to reasonably estimate the amount of loss in determining loss contingencies.  An estimated loss contingency is accrued when management concludes that it is probable that an asset has been impaired or a liability has been incurred and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated.  We regularly evaluate current information available to us to determine whether such accruals should be adjusted.



10






We recognize deferred tax assets (future tax benefits) and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the book carrying amounts and the tax basis of assets and liabilities.  The deferred tax assets and liabilities represent the expected future tax return consequences of those differences, which are expected to be either deductible or taxable when the assets and liabilities are recovered or settled.  Future tax benefits have been fully offset by a 100% valuation allowance as management is unable to determine that it is more likely than not that this deferred tax asset will be realized.


The Company’s securities investments that are bought and held for an indefinite period of time are classified as available-for-sale securities.  Available-for-sale securities are recorded at fair value on the balance sheet in current assets, with the change in fair value during the period excluded from earnings and recorded net of tax as a component of other comprehensive income.   All of the Company’s available-for-sale are marketable securities and have no maturity date.


The Company’s securities investments that are bought and held principally for the purpose of selling them in the near term are classified as trading securities.  Trading securities are recorded at fair value on the balance sheet in current assets, with the change in fair value during the period included in earnings.  


Recently Enacted and Proposed Regulatory Changes - Recently enacted and proposed changes in the laws and regulations affecting public companies, including the provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and rules proposed by the SEC and NASDAQ could cause us to incur increased costs as we evaluate the implications of new rules and respond to new requirements. The new rules could make it more difficult for us to obtain certain types of insurance, including directors and officers liability insurance, and we may be forced to accept reduced policy limits and coverage or incur substantially higher costs to obtain the same or similar coverage. The impact of these events could also make it more difficult for us to attract and retain qualified persons to serve on the Company's board of directors, or as executive officers. We are presently evaluating and monitoring developments with respect to these new and proposed rules, and we cannot predict or estimate the amount of the additional costs we may incur or the timing of such costs.


In December 2011, FASB issued ASU 2011-12 “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220).”  In order to defer only those changes in Update 2011-05 that relate to the presentation of reclassification adjustments, the paragraphs in this Update supersede certain pending paragraphs in Update 2011-05. The amendments are being made to allow the Board time to re-deliberate whether to present on the face of the financial statements the effects of reclassifications out of accumulated other comprehensive income on the components of net income and other comprehensive income for all periods presented. While the Board is considering the operational concerns about the presentation requirements for reclassification adjustments and the needs of financial statement users for additional information about reclassification adjustments, entities should continue to report reclassifications out of accumulated other comprehensive income consistent with the presentation requirements in effect before Update 2011-05.All other requirements in Update 2011-05 are not affected by this Update, including the requirement to report comprehensive income either in a single continuous financial statement or in two separate but consecutive financial statements. Public entities should apply these requirements for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011.  Management does not expect the adoption of ASU 2011-11 to have a material effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.


In June 2011, FASB issued ASU 2011-05 “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220).”  Under the amendments in this Update, an entity has the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. In a single continuous statement, the entity is required to present the components of net income and total net income, the components of other comprehensive income and a total for other comprehensive income, along with the total of comprehensive income in that statement. In the two-statement approach, an entity is required to present components of net income and total net income in the statement of net income. The statement of other comprehensive income should immediately follow the statement of net income and include the components of other comprehensive income and a total for other comprehensive income, along with a total for comprehensive income. The amendments in this Update should be applied retrospectively. For public entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. Early adoption is permitted. The amendments do not require any transition disclosures. Management elected early adoption and has presented the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income.

In May 2011, FASB issued ASU 2011-04 “Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820).” The amendments in ASU 2011-04 change the wording used to describe the requirements in U.S. GAAP for measuring fair value and for disclosing information about fair value measurements. The amendments include (1) those that clarify the Board's intent about the application of existing fair value measurement and disclosure requirements and (2) those that change a particular principle or requirement for measuring fair value or for disclosing information about fair value measurements. In addition, to improve consistency in application across jurisdictions some changes in wording are necessary to ensure that U.S. GAAP and IFRS fair value measurement and disclosure requirements are described in the same way (for example, using the word shall rather than should to describe the requirements in U.S. GAAP). The amendments that clarify the Board's intent about the application of  existing fair value measurement and disclosure requirements include (a) the application of the highest and best use and valuation premise concepts, (b) measuring the fair value of an instrument classified in a reporting entity's shareholders' equity, and (c) disclosures about fair value measurements that clarify that a reporting entity should disclose quantitative information about the unobservable inputs used in a fair value measurement that is categorized within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy. The amendments in this Update that change a particular principle or requirement for measuring fair value or disclosing information about fair value measurements include (a) measuring the fair value of financial instruments that are managed within a portfolio, (b) application of premiums and discounts in a fair value measurement, and (c) additional disclosures about fair value measurements that expand the disclosures about fair value measurements. The amendments in ASU 2011-04 are to be applied prospectively. For public entities, the amendments are effective during interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. Early application by public entities is not permitted. Management does not expect the adoption of ASU 2011-04 to have a material effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.


The Company has implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect.  These pronouncements did not have any material impact on the financial statements unless otherwise disclosed, and the Company does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

ITEM 9   CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS

ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE



There are not and have not been any disagreements between the Company and its accountants on any matter of accounting principles, practices or financial statements disclosure.



ITEM 9A(T).  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES


Conclusion Regarding the Effectiveness of Disclosure Controls and Procedures


We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Management necessarily applied its judgment in assessing the costs and benefits of such controls and procedures, which, by their nature, can provide only reasonable assurance regarding management’s control objectives.


With the participation of management, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures at the conclusion of the period ended December 31, 2011. Based upon this evaluation, the principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective in ensuring that material information required to be disclosed is included in the reports that we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  


Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting


Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the Company as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act.   Internal control over financial reporting is a process to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of our financial reporting for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. Internal control over financial reporting includes maintaining records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect our transactions; providing reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary for preparation of our financial statements; providing reasonable assurance that receipts and expenditures of Company assets are made in accordance with management authorization; and providing reasonable assurance that unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of Company assets that could have a material effect on our financial statements would be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Because of the inherent limitations of internal control over financial reporting, misstatements may not be prevented or detected on a timely basis. Also, projections of any evaluation of the effectiveness of the internal control over financial reporting to future periods are subject to the risk that the controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.


Management, with the participation of the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2011. In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control—Integrated Framework. Based on this assessment, management, with the participation of the principal executive officer and principal financial officer, believes that, as of December 31, 2011, our internal control over financial reporting is effective based on those criteria.



This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting.  Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the Company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of Securities and Exchange Commission that permit the Company to provide only the management’s report in this annual report.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting


There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the year ended December 31, 2011 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Joseph Fiore has been Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and Chief Financial Officer since October, 1996. In 1982, Mr. Fiore formed East Coast Equipment and Supply Co., Inc., a restaurant supply company that he still owns.  Between 1982 and 1993, Mr. Fiore established 9 restaurants (2 owned and 7 franchised) which featured a 1950's theme restaurant concept offering a traditional American menu.


James Mylock, Jr. has worked with Joseph Fiore in marketing and business development since graduating from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1990.




Tim Matula joined Shearson Lehman Brothers as a financial consultant in 1992. In 1994 he joined Prudential Securities and when he left Prudential in 1997, he was Associate Vice President, Investments, Quantum Portfolio Manager.



14





The Company's Certificate of Incorporation provides that the board of directors shall consist of from one to nine members as elected by the shareholders.  Each director shall hold office until the next annual meeting of stockholders and until his successor shall have been elected and qualified.


Board Meetings and Committees


The Directors and Officers will not receive remuneration from the Company until a subsequent offering has been successfully completed, or cash flow from operating permits, all in the discretion of the Board of Directors.  Directors may be paid their expenses, if any, of attendance at such meeting of the Board of Directors, and may be paid a fixed sum for attendance at each meeting of the Board of Directors or a stated salary as Director.  No such payment shall preclude any Director from serving the Corporation in any other capacity and receiving compensation therefor.  No compensation has been paid to the Directors.  The Board of Directors may designate from among its members an executive committee and one or more other committees.  No such committees have been appointed.


Compliance with Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act


Based solely upon a review of forms 3, 4, and 5 and amendments thereto, furnished to the Company during or respecting its last fiscal year, no director, officer, beneficial owner of more than 10% of any class of equity securities of the Company or any other person known to be subject to Section 16 of the Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, failed to file on a timely basis reports required by Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act for the last fiscal year.


Audit Committee Financial Expert


The Company's board of directors does not have an "audit committee financial expert," within the meaning of such phrase under applicable regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, serving on its audit committee. The board of directors believes that all members of its audit committee are financially literate and experienced in business matters, and that one or more members of the audit committee are capable of (i) understanding generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") and financial statements, (ii) assessing the general application of GAAP principles in connection with our accounting for estimates, accruals and reserves, (iii) analyzing and evaluating our financial statements, (iv) understanding our internal controls and procedures for financial reporting; and (v) understanding audit committee functions, all of which are attributes of an audit committee financial expert. However, the board of directors believes that there is not any audit committee member who has obtained these attributes through the experience specified in the SEC's definition of "audit committee financial expert." Further, like many small companies, it is difficult for the Company to attract and retain board members who qualify as "audit committee financial experts," and competition for these individuals is significant. The board believes that its current audit committee is able to fulfill its role under SEC regulations despite not having a designated "audit committee financial expert."



ITEM 11.  EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION


None of the executive officer’s salary and bonus exceeded $100,000 during any of the Company’s last two

fiscal years.


Employment Agreements


Effective January 1, 1997, the Company entered into an employment Agreement with Joseph Fiore (the “Fiore Employment Agreement”) under which Joseph Fiore serves as chairman of the board and chief executive officer of the Company. Pursuant to the Fiore Employment Agreement, Mr. Fiore was to be paid $50,000 in 1997 and $75,000 in 1998.   In addition, Mr. Fiore will receive family health insurance coverage until age 70 and life insurance coverage until age 70 with a death benefit of $1,000,000 and the use of an automobile, with all expenses associated with the maintenance and operation of the automobile paid by the Corporation.  Mr. Fiore deferred all salaries and benefits under this agreement until the Company reaches profitability.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTANTS


To the Board of Directors and Shareholders

Eat At Joe’s, Ltd. and Subsidiaries


We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Eat At Joe’s, Ltd. and Subsidiaries (a Delaware corporation) as of December 31, 2011 and 2010 and the related consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss), stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the years then ended.  These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management.  Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.  


We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States).  Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement.  The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting.  Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the company’s internal control over financial reporting.  Accordingly, we express no such opinion.  An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation.  We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.


In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Eat At Joe’s, Ltd. and Subsidiaries as of December 31, 2011 and 2010 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.


The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  As discussed in Note 1 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and has a net capital deficiency that raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.  Management’s plans in regards to these matters are also described in Note 1.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

EAT AT JOE’S LTD. AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2011 AND 2010


NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

This summary of accounting policies for Eat At Joe’s, Ltd. and subsidiaries is presented to assist in understanding the Company's financial statements.  The accounting policies conform to generally accepted accounting principles and have been consistently applied in the preparation of the financial statements.


Organization


Eat At Joe’s Ltd. (Company) was incorporated on January 6, 1988, under the laws of the State of Delaware, as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Debbie Reynolds Hotel and Casino, Inc. (DRHC) (formerly Halter Venture Corporation or Halter Racing Stables, Inc.) a publicly-owned corporation.  DRHC caused the Company to register 1,777,000 shares of its initial 12,450,000 issued and outstanding shares of common stock with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Form S-18.  DRHC then distributed the registered shares to DRHC stockholders.


            During the period September 30, 1988 to December 31, 1992, the Company remained in the development stage while attempting to enter the mining industry.  The Company acquired certain unpatented mining claims and related equipment necessary to mine, extract, process and otherwise explore for kaolin clay, silica, feldspar, precious metals, antimony and other commercial minerals from its majority stockholder and other unrelated third-parties.  The Company was unsuccessful in these start-up efforts and all activity was ceased during 1992 as a result of foreclosure on various loans in default and/or the abandonment of all assets.  From 1992 until 1996 the Company had no operations, assets or liabilities.


On July 29, 2003, the Board of Directors Resolved to change the authorized capital stock from 50,000,000 common shares to 250,000,000 common shares.  There was no change to the par value.


Basis of Presentation


The Company’s consolidated financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.  The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustment relating to recoverability and classification of recorded amounts of assets and liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2011 AND 2010

(Continued)


NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

(Continued)


Basis of Presentation (continued)


         The Company has incurred net income (loss) for the year ended December 31, 2011 and 2010 of ($152,909) and ($621,781), respectively and the Company provided (used) cash from operations of $54,531 and $57,884, respectively.  As of December 31, 2011, the Company had a working capital deficit of $3,770,308.  These conditions raise substantial doubt as to the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. 


The Company's continued existence is dependent upon its ability to execute its operating plan and to obtain additional debt or equity financing.  There can be no assurance the necessary debt or equity financing will be available, or will be available on terms acceptable to the Company.


Management plans include opening one new restaurant during the next twelve months and obtaining additional financing to fund payment of obligations and to provide working capital for operations and to finance future growth.  The Company is actively pursuing alternative financing and has had discussions with various third parties, although no firm commitments have been obtained.  In the interim, shareholders of the Company have committed to meeting its operating expenses.  Management believes these efforts will generate sufficient cash flows from future operations to pay the Company’s obligations and realize other assets.  There is no assurance any of these transactions will occur.   


Nature of Business


The Company is developing, owns and operates theme restaurants styled in an “American Diner” atmosphere.


Principles of Consolidation


The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Eat At Joe’s, LTD. And its wholly-owned subsidiaries, E.A.J. Hold, Inc., a Nevada corporation (“Hold”),  E.A.J. PHL Airport, Inc., a Pennsylvania corporation, E.A.J. Shoppes, Inc., a Nevada corporation, E.A.J. Cherry Hill, Inc., a Nevada corporation, E.A.J. Neshaminy, Inc., a Nevada corporation, E.A.J. PM, Inc., a Nevada corporation, E.A.J. Echelon, Inc., a Nevada corporation, E.A.J. Market East, Inc., a Nevada corporation, E.A.J. MO, Inc., a Nevada corporation, Branded Restaurant Group, Inc. (formerly E.A.J. Syracuse, Inc.), a Nevada corporation, E.A.J. Walnut Street, Inc., a Nevada corporation, E.A.J. Owings, Inc., a Nevada corporation, and 1398926 Ontario, Inc. and 1337855 Ontario, Inc., British Columbia corporations.  All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.


On January 29, 2010, the Company filed certificates of dissolution with the State of Nevada for E.A.J. Echelon, Inc., E.A.J. Owings, Inc., and Regency Communications Group, Inc. (formerly E.A.J. Neshaminy, Inc.).


On April 14, 2011, the Company filed certificates of dissolution with the State of Nevada for E.A.J. Hold, Inc., E.A.J. PM, Inc., and Branded Restaurant Group, Inc. (formerly E.A.J. Syracuse, Inc.).

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

(Continued)


Inventories


Inventories consist of food, paper items and related materials and are stated at the lower of cost (first-in, first-out method) or market.


Revenue Recognition


The Company generates revenue from the sale of food and beverage through its restaurants.  Revenue is recognized upon receipt of payment.


Income Taxes


The Company accounts for income taxes under the provisions of ASC 740 (formerly SFAS No. 109, “Accounting for Income Taxes”).  ASC 740 requires recognition of deferred income tax assets and liabilities for the expected future income tax consequences, based on enacted tax laws, of temporary differences between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities.


Cash and Cash Equivalents

 

For purposes of the statement of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents to the extent the funds are not being held for investment purposes.


Depreciation


Office furniture, equipment and leasehold improvements, are stated at cost.  Depreciation and amortization are computed using the straight-line method over the estimated economic useful lives of the related assets as follows:


Furniture & fixtures

5-10 years

Equipment

5- 7 years

Leasehold improvements

8-15 years


Maintenance and repairs are charged to operations; betterments are capitalized.  The cost of property sold or otherwise disposed of and the accumulated depreciation thereon are eliminated from the property and related accumulated depreciation accounts, and any resulting gain or loss is credited or charged to income.

 

         During 2011, the Company remodeled the restaurant and added leasehold improvements totaling $269,669, and purchased new equipment totaling $91,127.  The old leasehold improvements of $376,165 and old equipment of $116,954 were removed from service and disposed of, resulting in total cost of the property and the corresponding accumulated depreciation of $493,119 being eliminated from the property and related accumulated depreciation accounts.  No gain or loss was recorded on the disposal.

Amortization


Intangible assets consist of a trademark registered with the United States of America Patent and Trademark Office with a registration No. 1575696.  Intangible assets are amortized over their estimated useful life of 10 years.


The Company has adopted the Financial Accounting Standards Board ASC 350 (formerly SFAS No., 142, “Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets”).  ASC 350 requires, among other things, that companies no longer amortize goodwill, but instead test goodwill for impairment at least annually.  In addition, ASC requires that the Company identify reporting units for the purposes of assessing potential future impairments of goodwill, reassess the useful lives of other existing recognized intangible assets, and cease amortization of intangible assets with an indefinite useful life.  An intangible asset with an indefinite useful life should be tested for impairment in accordance with the guidance in ASC 350.  


The Company has adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board ASC 360 (formerly Statement No. 144).  ASC 360 requires that long-lived assets, such as property, plant, and equipment, and purchased intangibles subject to amortization, are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.  Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to estimated undiscounted future cash flows expected to be generated by the asset.  If the carrying amount of an asset exceeds its estimated future cash flows, an impairment charge is recognized by the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds the fair value of the asset.  


Assets to be disposed of would be separately presented in the balance sheet and reported at the lower of the carrying amount or fair value less costs to sell, and are no longer depreciated. The assets and liabilities of a disposed group classified as held for sale would be presented separately in the appropriate asset and liability sections of the balance sheet.

Recent Accounting Standards


In December 2011, FASB issued ASU 2011-12 “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220).”  In order to defer only those changes in Update 2011-05 that relate to the presentation of reclassification adjustments, the paragraphs in this Update supersede certain pending paragraphs in Update 2011-05. The amendments are being made to allow the Board time to re-deliberate whether to present on the face of the financial statements the effects of reclassifications out of accumulated other comprehensive income on the components of net income and other comprehensive income for all periods presented. While the Board is considering the operational concerns about the presentation requirements for reclassification adjustments and the needs of financial statement users for additional information about reclassification adjustments, entities should continue to report reclassifications out of accumulated other comprehensive income consistent with the presentation requirements in effect before Update 2011-05.All other requirements in Update 2011-05 are not affected by this Update, including the requirement to report comprehensive income either in a single continuous financial statement or in two separate but consecutive financial statements. Public entities should apply these requirements for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011.  Management does not expect the adoption of ASU 2011-11 to have a material effect on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.


In June 2011, FASB issued ASU 2011-05 “Comprehensive Income (Topic 220).”  Under the amendments in this Update, an entity has the option to present the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. In both choices, an entity is required to present each component of net income along with total net income, each component of other comprehensive income along with a total for other comprehensive income, and a total amount for comprehensive income. In a single continuous statement, the entity is required to present the components of net income and total net income, the components of other comprehensive income and a total for other comprehensive income, along with the total of comprehensive income in that statement. In the two-statement approach, an entity is required to present components of net income and total net income in the statement of net income. The statement of other comprehensive income should immediately follow the statement of net income and include the components of other comprehensive income and a total for other comprehensive income, along with a total for comprehensive income.  The amendments in this Update should be applied retrospectively. For public entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. Early adoption is permitted. The amendments do not require any transition disclosures.  Management elected early adoption and has presented the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income.

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

(Continued)


In May 2011, FASB issued ASU 2011-04 “Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820).” The amendments in ASU 2011-04 change the wording used to describe the requirements in U.S. GAAP for measuring fair value and for disclosing information about fair value measurements. The amendments include (1) those that clarify the Board's intent about the application of existing fair value measurement and disclosure requirements and (2) those that change a particular principle or requirement for measuring fair value or for disclosing information about fair value measurements. In addition, to improve consistency in application across jurisdictions some changes in wording are necessary to ensure that U.S. GAAP and IFRS fair value measurement and disclosure requirements are described in the same way (for example, using the word shall rather than should to describe the requirements in U.S. GAAP). The amendments that clarify the Board's intent about the application of  existing fair value measurement and disclosure requirements include (a) the application of the highest and best use and valuation premise concepts, (b) measuring the fair value of an instrument classified in a reporting entity's shareholders' equity, and (c) disclosures about fair value measurements that clarify that a reporting entity should disclose quantitative information about the unobservable inputs used in a fair value measurement that is categorized within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy. The amendments in this Update that change a particular principle or requirement for measuring fair value or disclosing information about fair value measurements include (a) measuring the fair value of financial instruments that are managed within a portfolio, (b) application of premiums and discounts in a fair value measurement, and (c) additional disclosures about fair value measurements that expand the disclosures about fair value measurements. The amendments in ASU 2011-04 are to be applied prospectively. For public entities, the amendments are effective during interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. Early application by public entities is not permitted. The Company does not expect the provisions of ASU 2010-29 to have a material effect on its financial position, results of operations or cash flows.


The Company has implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect.  These pronouncements did not have any material impact on the financial statements unless otherwise disclosed, and the Company does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

(Continued)


Earnings (Loss) Per Share


Basic loss per share has been computed by dividing the loss for the year applicable to the common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the years.


Diluted  net income per common share was calculated based on an increased number of shares that would be outstanding assuming that the preferred shares were converted to 10,000,000 and 17,241,379 common shares as of December 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively.  The effect of outstanding common stock equivalents are anti-dilutive for 2011 and 2010 and are thus not considered.


Pervasiveness of Estimates


The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles required 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.


Concentration of Credit Risk


The Company has no significant off-balance-sheet concentrations of credit risk such as foreign exchange contracts, options contracts or other foreign hedging arrangements.  The Company maintains the majority of its cash balances with one financial institution, in the form of demand deposits.  At December 31, 2011, the Compnay had cash deposits in one financial institution that were above FDIC limits of $250,000.


Reclassifications


Certain reclassifications have been made in the 2010 financial statements to conform with the 2011 presentation.


Fair Value of Financial Instruments


The carrying value of the Company's financial instruments, including receivables and accounts payable and accrued liabilities at December 31, 2011 and 2010 approximates their fair values due to the short-term nature of these financial instruments.  The carrying values of trading securities and available for sale securities are based on quoted market prices.

Investment in Marketable Securities


The Company’s securities investments that are bought and held for an indefinite period of time are classified as available-for-sale securities.  Available-for-sale securities are recorded at fair value on the balance sheet in current assets, with the change in fair value during the period excluded from earnings and recorded net of tax as a component of other comprehensive income.   All of the Company’s available-for-sale are marketable securities and have no maturity date.


The  Company’s securities investments that are bought and held principally for the purpose of selling them in the near term are classified as trading securities.  Trading securities are recorded at fair value on the balance sheet in current assets, with the change in fair value during the period included in earnings.

NOTE 2 - SHORT-TERM NOTES PAYABLE


Short-Term Notes Payable consist of loans from unrelated entities as of December 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010.  The notes are payable one year from the date of issuance together with interest at 6.50% A.P.R.  


NOTE 3 - INCOME TAXES


As of December 31, 2011, the Company had a net operating loss carryforward for income tax reporting purposes of approximately $5,200,000 that may be offset against future taxable income through 2030.  Current tax laws limit the amount of loss available to be offset against future taxable income when a substantial change in ownership occurs.  Therefore, the amount available to offset future taxable income may be limited.  No tax benefit has been reported in the financial statements, because the Company believes there is a 50% or greater chance the carry forwards will expire unused.  Accordingly, the potential tax benefits of the loss carry forwards are offset by a valuation allowance of the same amount.

The Company has the following tax assets:

NOTE 4 - UNCERTAIN TAX POSITIONS


Effective January 1, 2007, the company adopted the provisions of ASC 740 (formerly FASB Interpretation No. 48, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes - an interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109” (“FIN 48”)). ASC 740 prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities. The adoption of the provisions of ASC 740 did not have a material impact on the company’s condensed consolidated financial position and results of operations. At December 31, 2011, the company had no liability for unrecognized tax benefits and no accrual for the payment of related interest and penalties. The Company did not record a cumulative effect adjustment relating to the adoption of ASC 740.


Interest costs related to unrecognized tax benefits are classified as “Interest expense, net” in the accompanying condensed consolidated statements of operations. Penalties, if any, would be recognized as a component of “Selling, general and administrative expenses”. The Company recognized $0 of interest and penalties expense related to unrecognized tax benefits during 2011. In many cases the company’s uncertain tax positions are related to tax years that remain subject to examination by relevant tax authorities. With few exceptions, the company is generally no longer subject to U.S. federal, state, local or non-U.S. income tax examinations by tax authorities for years before 2008. The following describes the open tax years, by major tax jurisdiction, as of December 31, 2011:

 

 

 

United States (a)

 

2008 - Present


(a) Includes federal as well as state or similar local jurisdictions, as applicable.
