Item 1.     Description of Business
 
Background
 
Acacia Automotive, Inc. was originally formed in 1984 and, when named Gibbs Construction, Inc., grew to a full service, national commercial construction company, completing an initial public offering of its Common Stock to the public in January, 1996.  In April, 2000, Gibbs Construction, Inc. filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code following the filing for similar protection of the Company’s largest client and which followed the incursion of significant losses on several projects.
 
Prior to filing for protection under the United States Bankruptcy Code in April 2000, Gibbs Construction, Inc. had 4,060,000 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding.  The bankruptcy reorganization proceeding placed the existing assets of Gibbs Construction, Inc. in a liquidating trust, issued 501,000 shares of Common Stock to the trust, and agreed to issue 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock to a creditor.  Thacker Asset Management, LLC (“TAM”) agreed to sell to the Company certain existing contracts, furniture, fixtures and equipment in exchange for 4,000,000 shares of Common Stock.  Following these transactions, there were 8,561,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock issued and outstanding.
 
TAM’s operations were not successful, and all operating activities ceased in 2002.  On June 26, 2006, the bankruptcy trustee requested and received an Order for Final Decree.  On October 5, 2006, the 501,000 shares of common stock issued to the Trust were abandoned, returned to the Company, and thereupon cancelled leaving 8,060,000 shares issued and outstanding.
 
Post Bankruptcy Restructuring
 
On August 15, 2006, Steven L. Sample acquired for $50,000, 4,000,000 shares, or 46.7%, of the 8,561,000 issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock of the registrant from TAM and its associates.  Mr. Sample also paid several costs of the company such as the costs associated with completing the bankruptcy proceedings and arranging for the Company’s SEC filings to be brought current, and costs associated with recapitalizing the company. These costs totaled $138,862. In connection with the payment of these costs, the registrant agreed to effect a one for eight reverse stock split, to issue to Mr. Sample an additional 8,117,500 shares of Common Stock and 500,000 shares of preferred stock.  For the assistance of Harry K. Myers, Jr., a principal of Baker #1, Ltd., the entity owning Thacker Asset Management, LLC, the registrant agreed to issue to him 25,000 shares of preferred stock and 450,000 shares of Common Stock.
 
To fulfill its obligations under this agreement and further restructure the Company, the registrant’s board of directors recommended that its stockholders amend the corporate charter to effect a one for eight reverse stock split, to increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock to 150,000,000 and to create and establish a series of preferred stock.  On February 1, 2007, the Company’s shareholders approved these actions and also approved changing the Company’s name from Gibbs Construction, Inc. to Acacia Automotive, Inc.  These amendments to the Company’s charter were effective February 20, 2007
 
Immediately following the approval of these amendments, the Company adopted a stock option plan, which was ratified by the Company’s stockholders in November 2007, reserving 1,000,000 shares thereunder.  In February 2007 the directors granted pursuant to the plan 500,000 restricted shares to Mr. Moorby, the Company’s president, and options to two officers of the Company for another 15,000 shares.  With these grants, the exercise of warrants to purchase 250,000 shares of Common Stock, the exchange of the preferred stock issued to a creditor in the bankruptcy proceeding for 100,000 shares of Common Stock, and the payment of 10,000 shares of Common Stock to a consultant, there were 11,997,524 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding on March 31, 2008.
 
Contemplated Business
 
The Company’s prime objective is to acquire going and functioning automotive auctions, focusing on whole vehicle automobiles and light trucks.  Whole vehicle refers to vehicles that are generally in good repair, are roadworthy and operate under their own power as opposed to salvage units; that is, damaged vehicles that are considered total losses for insurance or business purposes.  In addition, the Company believes that if the acquired auction or auctions do not service the boat, recreational or motor home segments or the medium and heavy duty truck and equipment segments, it will seek to add one or more of those services to the auction’s activities, assuming the local market will support such additional services.
 
The Company considers its first automobile auction as indicative of the basis of services rendered by the Company.  The Company will have to raise cash to acquire additional automobile auctions, probably through the sale of Common Stock.
 
On July 10, 2007, the registrant completed the acquisition of all of the assets of Augusta Auto Auction, Inc., which conducted its business under the name Augusta Auto Auction and previously Hilltop Auto Auction.  The registrant issued 500,000 shares of its Common Stock and a warrant to purchase 50,000 shares of Common Stock for the assets.  The warrant has a term of five years and an exercise price of $1.00.  In addition, the registrant issued to two individuals a warrant to purchase 75,000 shares of Common Stock in consideration for entering into a non-compete agreement. Of the 75,000 warrants issued to each of those individuals for non-compete agreements, they were given the right to purchase 25,000 shares of Common stock each at $1.00, $2.00 and $4.00 respectively for an average aggregate price of $2.33 per share within five years of issuance.
 
 
History of Augusta Auto Auction
 
Augusta Auto Auction, Inc. (the “Auction”) is an automotive auction located in North Augusta, South Carolina, part of the Augusta, Georgia, metropolitan area, and is located three miles from the center of that city. The auction was originally formed and operated for many years in its present location as Hilltop Auto Auction.  In 2002 the group from which the registrant purchased the auction formed Augusta Auto Auction, Inc. after acquiring it from the owners of Hilltop Auto Auction.
 
Acacia Automotive formed a new South Carolina corporate subsidiary in July of 2007 which acquired the assets of Augusta Auto Auction.  The new corporation is named Acacia Augusta Vehicle Auction, Inc. d/b/a Augusta Auto Auction, Inc.
 
Business of the Auction
 
The Auction sells whole car and salvage vehicles for automotive dealers and commercial concerns. It also has the contract to sell vehicles and equipment for the U.S. Marshals Service in the South Carolina area, primarily offering confiscated vehicles and other units for them. Dealers and other qualified buyers attend the weekly auctions and bid on offered units. The highest bidder owns the vehicle, subject to any limiting reserve prices established by the owner/seller of the unit(s). In most cases, the buyers and sellers of the units pick up and deliver them to the Auction property, but the Auction does provide some transport services, generally for a fee.
 
The Auction generates revenues from fees for its services, including buyer fees, seller fees, transportation fees, title fees, draft and floor plan fees, reconditioning fees, and more. Augusta Auto Auction relies upon the efforts of its management for sales and marketing, but anticipates adding additional personnel in the future to increase the scope of those operations.
 
The Auction markets its activities through its employees and commercial media.
 
Industry
 
Automotive auctions are the hub of a massive redistribution system for used vehicles and equipment. These auctions enable commercial and institutional customers and selling dealers to easily dispose of their used vehicles to franchised, independent, and wholesale used vehicle and equipment dealers. The auction’s responsibility is to maximize the selling price obtained for clients’ used vehicles and equipment, efficiently transfer the physical and administrative ownership of the units (including the preparation and transfer of certificates of title and other evidence of ownership), and transfer funds resulting from the buy/sell transactions as quickly as possible from the buyers to the sellers.  The auction promotes its services to a large number of dealers seeking to restock their inventories for resale opportunities. Auctions are traditionally held weekly, if not more frequently, at the various locations to accommodate the needs of buyers and sellers in diverse segments of the industry. During the process, auctions do not generally take title to or ownership of the vehicles consigned for sale, but instead facilitate the transfer of vehicle ownership directly from seller to buyer, and in so doing they generate fees from the buyer and from the seller. In addition to these “buy/sell” fees, the auctions can generate substantial revenues by providing other services to clients, including: vehicle appearance reconditioning (detailing) services; paint and body repair; paintless dent repair (PDR); glass repair and replacement; key replacement; upholstery repair; minor mechanical repair; title services; sales of tires, batteries and accessories (TBA); marshaling (controlled storage) and inspection services, inbound and outbound transportation and delivery services, and more. In most instances, customers may also purchase each of these value-added services separately and directly from the auction in addition to having these services performed to units enrolled in the normal vehicle auction process.
 
The total number of vehicles offered for sale, and the total number of vehicles sold allow for determination of the total and per unit costs incurred and fees generated by the process. An important measure to the results of the used vehicle auction process is the conversion percentage, which represents the number of vehicles sold as a percentage of the vehicles offered for sale. In general, a high sales volume and conversion percentage efficiency at an auction converts to increased fees, lower costs, and greater profit opportunities. Auto auctions can also provide additional services to their clients, often including: (1) in-house services such as processing, advertising and marketing of the vehicles to be offered for sale; registration of new dealers and clients; processing of sale proceeds and other funds; handling arbitration disputes from the auction sale/purchase process; preparation of and transmittal of vehicle condition reports; security services for client inventories; creation and distribution of sales and marketing reports; as well as the actual sale of vehicles by licensed auctioneers; (2) internet-based solutions, including on-line bulletin board auctions and on-line live auctions that are simulcast in real-time in cooperation with the actual physical auctions; and, (3)  title processing and other paperwork administration and ancillary services.
 
Competition
 
The Company anticipates competing principally by service.  Management of the Company believes that service is one keystone upon which auto auctions are routinely measured, and has identified and made the practical execution of a high level of service to its clients an integral part of its business and operating plans.
 
 
The industry served by the Company is highly competitive across the entire United States and Canada. It is anticipated that any of our acquisition targets would potentially compete with a variety of knowledgeable and experienced companies. The main competitors the Company would expect to face throughout the United States are: (1) Manheim Auto Auctions: Manheim, a subsidiary of Cox Enterprises, operates approximately 135 locations throughout the world, with more than 75 auto auctions in the United States. Manheim owns several of the country’s largest auction facilities, and our management considers them to be very competitive and the leader in technological processes and Internet marketing capabilities. (2) ADESA Auto Auctions: ADESA, traded on the NYSE under the symbol KAR prior to being acquired by an investor group led by Kelso and Company in April of 2007 and thereby being taken private, is the second-largest auto auction company in North America with approximately 58 whole car auctions. They operate some 45 auctions in the United States and 14 in Canada. Acacia’s Management believes that ADESA’s technological processes and Internet marketing capabilities, while lagging those of Manheim, are nonetheless formidable. (3) Auction Broadcasting Company (ABC): ABC owns and operates approximately nine auto auctions nationally. While not nearly so large in their technological processes and Internet marketing capabilities as Manheim or ADESA, ABC has worked to develop a diverse model from its competitors. (4) independent auto auctions: There are hundreds of independent auto auctions operating in the United States.  Acacia actually sees these independent auctions as targets for future acquisitions, and enjoys a friendly relationship in most instances. (5) “mobile” auctions: There are several companies that operate “mobile” auctions. Their plans primarily entail engaging larger dealerships to host periodically “on-site” auctions that utilize these companies’ auctioneering and administrative services. Management does not believe these smaller independent mobile auctions are a substantial threat to our operations and will not likely become so under their present business models.
 
There are at least eleven auto auctions in operation in Georgia, and there are another six or more in South Carolina.  The two largest whole-car national automobile auction companies, Mannheim Auto Auctions and ADESA, have a total of three auctions in Georgia, all near Atlanta, Georgia.  While ADESA does not have an auction in South Carolina, Mannheim has one auction in Darlington, South Carolina.  Auction Broadcasting Corporation also has an auction near Atlanta, Georgia but none in South Carolina. In addition to those auction companies’ operations, there are several other independent auto auctions operating in Georgia, some specializing in sales of damaged or “salvage” units and perhaps one or more mobile auctions that will host on-site auctions at dealerships.
 
All our competitors will be seeking the same or similar clients as those targeted by our planned operations in every state in which we may seek to operate, many of which presently have significantly greater financial, technical, marketing and other resources than our Company. Our Company expects that it will face additional competition from existing competitors and new market entrants in the future. The principal competitive factors in our markets will emanate from the larger national companies and will include: (i) brand name recognition of competitors; (ii) larger, more modern, and better-equipped facilities; (in) superior Internet system engineering and technological expertise; (iv) more extensive staffs of experienced management and support personnel; (v) broader geographic presence; (vi) greater financial resources; (vii) introductions of new and enhanced services and products; and, (viii) greater variety of services offered.  We will have no control over how successful our competitors are in addressing these factors. Increased competition can result in price reductions, reduced gross margins and loss of market share, any of which could harm our net revenue and results of operations. The Company will rely upon its ability to offer the same or similar services as the competition, but with a higher level of service and customer satisfaction.
 
The prices to be charged by any auction the Company may acquire will generally be reflective of the competitive pricing in its local marketplace.  Some of these local markets may face competitive pressures from national automobile auction chains such as ADESA and Manheim which have size, financial and market strengths the Company lacks.
 
Employees
 
As of January 1, 2009, the company had two officer employees, Steven L. Sample, its Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer, and David Bynum, its Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, as well as two other part-time persons. The Augusta auction also employs eight full time and 21 part time persons.  The registrant plans to increase the number of employees, both part time and full time, as it expands its operations.
 
A given automobile auction will employ both full and part-time personnel and the number of employees may vary from as few as 10 to as many as 300 or many more.  The approximate size of our target auctions may more likely lie within the range of 50 to 200 employees.
 
The parent company, upon any successful course of acquiring auctions, would need to expand its staff to implement the controls necessary to manage a larger organization. This would likely result in the need for a Chief Financial Officer, as well other officers and managers and basic support personnel The Company will undertake to operate with the smallest corporate management staff possible so as to maintain the lowest overhead possible while still effecting sufficient management processes to properly guide the company.
 
Governmental Regulation
 
The Company, as with most companies operating vehicle auctions, is subject to various permits and licenses. These include vehicle dealer licenses, auctioneer licenses, business permits and licenses, sales tax permits, and others. The registrant’s auction has obtained all permits necessary to function under the current South Carolina regulations
 
 
Item 1A. Risk Factors
 
Because We Have Limited Operating History, it is Difficult to Evaluate Our Business.
 
The Company acquired a shell corporation that had no assets or liabilities after emerging in 2006 from six years in bankruptcy, and the Company began operating in July 2007 with the acquisition of one automobile auction.  Because of our limited operating history, you have very little operating and financial data about us upon which to base an evaluation. You should consider our prospects in light of the risks, expenses and difficulties we may encounter, including those frequently encountered by new companies. If we are unable to execute our plans and grow our business, either as a result of the risks identified in this section or for any other reason, this failure would have a material adverse effect on our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations.
 
We plan to grow through acquisitions, and investors have no current basis to evaluate the possible merits or risks of the target businesses' operations or our ability to identify and integrate acquired operations into our company. To the extent we complete a business combination with a financially unstable company or an entity in its development stage, we may be affected by numerous risks inherent in the business operations of those entities. Although our management will endeavor to evaluate the risks inherent in a particular target business, we cannot assure you that we will properly ascertain or assess all of the significant risk factors.
 
The purchase of our securities is a purchase of an interest in a high risk or in a new or “start-up” venture with all the unforeseen costs, expenses, problems, and difficulties to which such ventures are subject.
 
We plan to grow through acquisitions
 
Because we intend to develop and expand our business through selective acquisitions of automobile auctions and other complementary businesses, there are significant risks that we may not be successful. We may not be able to identify, acquire or profitably manage additional companies or assets or successfully integrate such additional companies or assets without substantial costs, delays or other problems. In addition, companies we may acquire may not be profitable at the time of their acquisition or may not achieve levels of profitability that would justify our investment. Acquisitions may involve a number of special risks, including
 
 
adverse short-term effects on our reported operating results,
 
 
diversion of management's attention,
 
 
dependence on retaining, hiring and training key personnel,
 
 
risks associated with unanticipated problems or legal liabilities,
 
 
amortization of acquired intangible assets, some or all of which could reflect poorly on our operating results and financial reports,
 
 
implementation or remediation of controls, procedures and policies appropriate for a larger public company at companies that prior to the acquisition lacked these controls, procedures and policies; and,
 
 
incursion of debt to make acquisitions or for other operating uses.
 
We will implement our acquisition strategy in what may be considered a mature industry
 
We believe the vehicle redistribution industry through auctions may be considered a mature industry in which single-digit or low double-digit growth may occur. Most growth for our Company would, accordingly, occur largely through acquisitions. To the extent that competitors are also seeking to grow through acquisitions, we could encounter competition for those acquisitions or a generally increasing price to acquire automobile auctions.
 
A primary part of the Company’s strategy is to establish revenue through the acquisition of additional companies. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to identify, acquire or profitably manage additional companies or successfully integrate the operations of additional companies into those of the Company without encountering substantial costs, delays or other problems. In addition, there can be no assurance that companies acquired in the future will achieve or maintain profitability that justify liabilities that could materially adversely affect the Company's results of operations or financial condition. The Company may compete for acquisition and expansion opportunities with companies that have greater resources than the Company. There can be no assurance that suitable acquisition candidates will be available, that purchase terms or financing for acquisitions will be obtainable on terms acceptable to the Company, that acquisitions can be consummated or that acquired businesses can be integrated successfully and profitability into the Company’s operations. Further, the Company's results of operations in fiscal quarters immediately following a material acquisition may be materially adversely affected while the Company integrates the acquired business into its existing operations.
 
 
The Company will attempt to acquire business entities that are going and functioning concerns with a trailing history of profitability, but may acquire certain businesses that have either been unprofitable, have had inconsistent profitability prior to their acquisition, or that have had no operating history. An inability of the Company to improve the profitability of these acquired businesses could have a material adverse effect on the Company. Finally, the Company's acquisition strategy places significant demands on the Company's resources and there can be no assurance that the Company's management and operational systems and structure can be expanded to effectively support the Company's acquisition strategy. If the Company is unable to successfully implement its acquisition strategy, this inability may have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, results of operations, or financial condition. The Company may face the opportunity to enhance shareholder value by being acquired by another company. Upon any acquisition of the Company, the Company would be subject to various risks, including the replacement of its management by persons currently unknown. There can also be no assurance that, if acquired, new management will be successfully integrated or can profitably manage the Company. In addition, any acquisition of the Company may involve immediate dilution to existing shareholders of the Company. In its present configuration, the Company cannot be forcibly acquired in a hostile takeover, and therefore the Company can review the ultimate impact on its shareholders prior to engaging in any such activities. No assurances can be given that the Company will be able to or desire to be acquired, or be able to acquire additional companies.
 
Possible Need for Additional Financing
 
The Company intends to fund its operations and other capital needs for the next six months from private placements, but there can be no assurance that such funds will be sufficient for the purposes of our business. The Company may require additional amounts of capital for its future expansion and working capital. The Company has made preliminary arrangements to obtain future additional financing, if required, but there can be no assurance that such financing will be available, or that such financing will be available on acceptable terms.
 
Dependence on David Bynum and Steve Sample
 
Our future performance depends in significant part upon the continued service of our Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, David Bynum, and our Chief Executive Officer, Steve “Junior” Sample. The loss of their services could have a material adverse effect on our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations. The Company does not presently maintain key man life insurance on Mr. Bynum or Mr. Sample, but may obtain such insurance at the discretion of its board of directors for such term as it may deem suitable or desirable. Our future success also depends on our ability to attract and retain highly qualified technical, sales and managerial personnel. Although the Company feels that there is a sufficient pool of talent available, the competition for such personnel can be intense, and there can be no assurance that we can attract, assimilate or retain highly qualified technical, sales and managerial personnel for favorable compensations in the future.
 
Technological Change
 
Technology, particularly the ability to use the Internet to view vehicles, to conduct Internet auctions, to allow customers to participate through the Internet in on–site auctions, and to allow several management functions for buyers and sellers for vehicle auctions is characterized by rapidly changing technology, evolving industry standards, frequent new product and service announcements, introductions and enhancements, and changing customer demands. Our future success will to some degree depend on our ability to adapt to rapidly changing technologies, our ability to adapt its solutions to meet evolving industry standards and our ability to improve continually the performance, features and reliability of its solutions. The failure of the Company to adapt successfully to such changes in a timely manner could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, results of operations and financial condition. Furthermore, there can be no assurance that the Company will not experience difficulties that could delay or prevent the successful implementation of solutions, or that any new solutions or enhancements to existing solutions will adequately meet the requirements of its current and prospective customers and achieve any degree of significant market acceptance. If the Company is unable, for technological or other reasons, to develop and introduce new solutions or enhancements to existing solutions in a timely manner or in response to changing market conditions or customer requirements, or if its solutions or enhancements do not achieve a significant degree of market acceptance, the Company's business, results of operations and financial condition could be materially and adversely affected.
 
Competition
 
The industry served by the Company is highly competitive across the entire United States and Canada. We currently or potentially compete with a variety of companies. Our first acquisition, servicing the Augusta, Georgia, area, was acquired July 10, 2007, and we anticipate that the Company’s other early acquisitions will be in the eastern United States, but there is no assurance it will be able do so. See “Item 1- Business – Competition.”
 
Control
 
The Company is currently controlled by two of its officers and directors. David Bynum, the Company’s Vice President and COO, and Steven L. Sample, the Company’s CEO, currently own 54.34% of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock. Mr. Sample and Mr. Bynum and will initially retain effective control over the Company’s operations, including the election of a majority of its board of directors, the issuance of additional shares of equity securities, and other matters of corporate governance Based upon the Company's current business plan, it is anticipated that Mr. Bynum and Mr. Sample will continue to have effective but not ultimate control of the Company well into future, perhaps even after some subsequent private offerings or a public offering.
 
 
Management of Growth
 
The Company is currently seeking to identify and acquire additional auto auctions. As a result, the Company must manage relationships with a growing number of third parties as it seeks to accommodate this goal. The Company's management, personnel, systems, procedures and controls may not be adequate to support the Company’s future operations. The Company's ability to manage its growth effectively will require it to continue to expand its operating and financial procedures and controls, to replace or upgrade its operational, financial and management information systems and to attract, train, motivate, manage and retain key employees. If the Company's executives are unable to manage growth effectively, the Company's business, results of operations and financial condition could be materially adversely affected. If successful in acquiring additional auto auctions, the Company expects to inherit a substantial portion of the staff necessary to operate the new entities. We may find that some of the personnel and management of any acquisition target(s) may not be suitable for continued employment, while other suitable candidates may elect to discontinue their employment or affiliation with the Company for various reasons. This can create a burden on the Company’s management as it seeks to fill key positions. Failure of the Company to do so in a timely manner can result in disruption of auction operations, loss of revenues, and a subsequent reduction in profits.
 
Risks Associated with Expansion
 
The Company commenced auction operations first in one location and market, and plans to subsequently expand into other locations and markets.  To date, the Company does not have experience in developing services on a regional or national scale. There can be no assurance that the Company will be able to deploy successfully its services in these markets. There are certain risks inherent in doing business in several diverse markets, such as; unexpected changes in regulatory requirements, potentially adverse tax consequences, local restrictions, controls relating to inter-company communications and technology, difficulties in staffing and managing distant operations, fluctuations in manpower availability, effects of local competition, weather and climactic trends, and customer preferences, any of which could have a material adverse effect on the success of the Company's operations and, consequently, on the Company's business, results of operations, and financial condition.
 
Product and Service Offerings
 
The Company is primarily a service business.  It is important to our future success to expand the breadth and depth of our service offerings to stay abreast of the competition and to enhance our potentials for growth of revenues and profits. Expansion of our service categories and service offerings in this manner will require significant additional expenditures and could strain our management, financial and operational resources. For example, we may find it prudent to build, outfit, and operate a body and paint shop at an auction facility that does not presently have one. We cannot be certain that we will be able to do so in a cost-effective or timely manner or that we will be able to offer certain services in demand by our customers, or to do so in a quality manner. Furthermore, any new service offering that is not favorably received by the Company’s clients could damage our reputation. The lack of market acceptance of new services or our inability to generate satisfactory revenues from expanded service offerings to offset their costs could harm our business. If we do not successfully expand our sales and service operations, our revenues may fall below expectations.  If we do not successfully expand our operations on an ongoing basis to accommodate increases in demand, we will not be able to fulfill our customers’ needs in a timely manner, which would harm our business. Most of our service operations are anticipated to be handled at our facilities, but some services may be performed at offsite locations or by approved vendors or contractors. Any future expansion may cause disruptions in our business and may be insufficient to meet our ongoing requirements.
 
Government Regulation and Legal Uncertainties
 
Any new legislation or regulation, or the application of laws or regulations from jurisdictions whose laws do not currently apply to the Company's business could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, results of operations and financial condition.
 
Check, Credit Card, and Other Fraud
 
Our business would be harmed if we experience significant check, credit card, or other fraud. If we fail to adequately control fraudulent transactions, our revenues and results of operations could be harmed. The Company’s auction operations subscribe to the services of Auction Insurance Agency as a protection against risks similar to these, but while the Company’s exposure to loss in this event is thought to be limited by the purchase of insurance, losses could nonetheless occur. Any losses sustained as a result of fraud or fraudulent activity would adversely affect the Company's business and results of operations, and its financial condition could be materially adversely affected.
 
Development of and Dependence on Key Personnel
 
The Company's success depends in significant part upon the hiring, development and retention of key senior management personnel. Our anticipated future operations will place a significant strain on our management systems and resources. Our ability to implement successfully our business strategy requires an effective planning and management process. Competition for such personnel is intense, and the Company may not be able to attract and retain key personnel. The loss of the services of one or more of the Company's key employees or the Company's failure to attract additional qualified personnel could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, results of operations and financial condition. The Company does not currently carry key man life insurance for any of its employees, but is subject to do so at the direction of its Board of Directors. Any cost of key man insurance would be borne by the Company.
 
 
Liability Claims
 
The Company may face costly liability claims by consumers. Any claim of  liability by a client, employee, consumer or other entity against us, regardless of merit, could be costly financially and could divert the attention of our management. It could also create negative publicity, which would harm our business. Although we maintain liability insurance, it may not be sufficient to cover a claim if one is made.
 
Risks of Low Priced Stocks
 
Although the Company is currently a public company, its trading is limited to the Pink Sheets.  A trading market for the Company's Common Stock could develop further, but there can be no assurance that it will do so. The Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC” or “Commission”) has adopted regulations which define a “penny stock” to be any equity security, such as those being offered by the Company herein, that has a market price (as therein defined) of less than $5.00 per share or an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. For any transaction involving a penny stock, unless exempt, the rules require the delivery, prior to any transaction involving a penny stock by a retail customer, of a disclosure schedule prepared by the Securities and Exchange commission relating to the penny stock market. Disclosure is also required to be made about commissions payable to both the broker/dealer and the registered representative and current quotations for the securities. Accordingly, market makers may be less inclined to participate in marketing the Company’s securities which may have an adverse impact upon the liquidity of the Company’s securities.
 
No Assurance of Payment of Dividends
 
Should the operations of the Company become profitable it is likely that the Company would retain much or all of its earnings in order to finance future growth and expansion. Therefore, the Company does not presently intend to pay dividends, and it is not likely that any dividends will be paid in the foreseeable future.
 
Potential Future Capital Needs
 
The Company may not be successful in generating sufficient cash from operations or in raising capital in sufficient amounts on acceptable terms. The failure to generate sufficient cash flows or to raise sufficient funds may require the Company to delay or abandon some or all of its development and expansion plans or otherwise forego market opportunities and may make it difficult for the Company to respond to competitive pressures, any of which could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, results of operations, and financial condition. There can be no assurance that the proceeds in this Offering will be sufficient to permit the Company to implement its proposed business plan or that any assumptions relating to the implementation of such plan will prove to be accurate. The Company has executed a term sheet summarizing certain terms and conditions it anticipates to be included in a real estate purchase credit facility with a financial source, but has not yet executed the actual agreement at the time as of the date of this offering.  To the extent that the proceeds of this Offering are not sufficient to enable the Company to generate meaningful revenues or achieve profitable operations, the inability to obtain additional financing will have a material adverse effect on the Company. There can be no assurance that any such financing will be available to the Company on commercially reasonable terms, or at all.

Item 2.    Description of Property
 
In July 2008, the Company renewed a twelve month lease on the location where the Augusta Auto Auction has operated for several years.  The lease term can be further extended and currently has a monthly lease rate of $2,835.  The facility consists of approximately five acres, houses two administrative buildings and a two-lane auction arena, and provides parking for several hundred vehicles.  The compound is fenced, and the registrant has recently installed an electrified security fence system as well as security systems in its buildings and auction arena.  In addition to the main auction facility, the registrant also leases property which is used for additional vehicle storage (both indoor and outdoor) and customer parking for approximately 200 additional customer vehicles on sale days.  This property is located directly across the street from the main facility and is leased on a month-to month basis for $1230 per month. The portion of the property (land and building) used for storage of sale units is also protected by security fencing and alarm systems.
 
The Company also maintains administrative offices in Ocala, Florida, at a cost of approximately $429.00 per month, which it may cancel at any time.

As of August 15, 2009, the Company had 123 stockholders of record. We believe that we may also have 250 or more additional beneficial shareholders.
 
Holders of common stock are entitled to receive dividends as may be declared by our board of directors and, in the event of liquidation, to share pro rata in any distribution of assets after payment of liabilities. The board of directors has sole discretion to determine: (i) whether to declare a dividend; (ii) the dividend rate, if any, on the shares of any class of series of our capital stock, and if so, from which date or dates; and (iii) the relative rights of priority of payment of dividends, if any, between the various classes and series of our capital stock. We have not paid any dividends and do not have any current plans to pay any dividends.
 
At its meeting of directors on February 1, 2007, the Company’s board of directors approved its 2007 Stock Option Plan which was approved by our stockholders on November 2, 2007, reserving 1,000,000 shares to be issued thereunder.  At that meeting, the directors granted restricted stock to two individuals and options to two individuals, summarized as follows:

Forward-Looking Information
 
The Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and other sections of the Form 10-K contain forward-looking information. The forward-looking information involves risks and uncertainties that are based on current expectations, estimates, and projections about the Company's business, management's beliefs and assumptions made by management. Words such as "expects", "anticipates", "intends", "plans", "believes", "seeks", "estimates", and variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking information. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in such forward-looking information due to numerous factors, including, but not limited to, availability of financing for operations, successful performance of internal operations, impact of competition and other risks detailed below as well as those discussed elsewhere in this Form 10-KSB and from time to time in the Company's Securities and Exchange Commission filings and reports. In addition, general economic and market conditions and growth rates could affect such statements.
 
General
 
Discussion Regarding the Company’s First Acquired Operating Entity
 
With the acquisition of the Augusta Auto Auction on July 10, 2007, the Company commenced operations, ceased being a shell company, and conducted its first weekly auction on July 11th under Acacia’s management.  The Company’s only operations in 2007 were those operations.
 
In looking to the future after acquiring the auction, the Company made substantial investments and changes during Q4 2007 that initially had a far greater negative impact on its immediate operations and profitability than originally anticipated.  Those changes included a number of efforts that bore significant costs in terms of cash outlays and operating hardships, including but not limited to improvements to the physical plant, upgrades to technology equipment hardware and operating software.
 
As a result of our misguided confidence in the vendor of that new auction operating software, we believed that the software and operating system objectives we sought would be achieved, giving faster and broader access to its information and operating statistics, providing state-of-the-art access through web-based servers utilizing Oracle database technologies and housed in high-security environments at diverse geographical locations throughout the United States for both data security and redundancy in the event of catastrophe, and more.  Additionally, in a widely-published announcement, the Company’s two active software vendors supplying its auction operating systems (the original system which the auction continues to maintain and the new system which was to be put into use) made public their intention to merge.  The Company anticipated such a union would allow for smoother integration of its old data to the new system, provide additional markets for Internet-based selling efforts through the combined resources of the two vendors’ operations, and provide the vendors with substantially greater presence in the marketplace than either previously enjoyed.
 
Unfortunately, the new software fell far short of the Company’s expectations, and the two software providers did not merge as anticipated.  Ultimately, the Company was forced to discontinue use of the new software at mid-year due to insurmountable problems that resulted in business disruptions and some loss of support by our auction clients.  The Company subsequently reverted to its original software vendor, upgrading to the latest versions of its programs, and thereafter regained heightened stability in its operating status. The abandoned operating system caused the Company to suffer delays in reporting its financial results and filings with the SEC.  With the original, but updated, operating system back in place, the Company has finally returned to stability in its ability to meet reporting requirements.
 
The Company continues to believe that auto auctions are recession-resistant because, in part, the industry is more dependent on the size of the U.S. “Car Park” (the number of vehicles in operation or VIO) than it is upon manufacturing output, retail sales of motor vehicles, or other factors.  Of the 258 million units in the car park in 2007, 46 million were sold in used vehicle transactions, and auto auctions sold over 10 million of those units. Through September of 2008, auto auction volumes in the U.S. were off less than 1%, while new vehicle retail sales declined more than 22%.
 
The Company has experienced and expects to continue to experience fluctuations in its quarterly results of operations due to a number of factors as those indicated above and others, many of which are beyond the Company's control and which are common to the auto auction industry. Generally, the volume of vehicles sold at the Company's auctions is highest in the first and second calendar quarters of each year and slightly lower in the third quarter. Fourth quarter volume of vehicles sold is generally lower than all other quarters. This seasonality is affected by several factors including weather, the timing of used vehicles available for sale from selling customers, holidays, and the seasonality of the retail market for used vehicles, which affect the demand side of the auction industry. Used vehicle auction volumes tend to decline during prolonged periods of winter weather conditions. Among the other factors that have in the past and/or could in the future affect the Company's operating results are: general business conditions; trends in new and used vehicle sales and incentives, including wholesale used vehicle pricing; economic conditions including fuel prices and interest rate fluctuations; trends in the vehicle remarketing industry; the introduction of new competitors; competitive pricing pressures; and costs associated with the acquisition of businesses or technologies. As a result of the above factors, operations are subject to significant variability and uncertainty from quarter to quarter, and revenues and operating expenses related to volume will fluctuate accordingly on a quarterly basis.
 
The Company's earnings therefore are generally expected to be highest in the first or second calendar quarter, while the fourth calendar quarter typically will provide the lowest earnings as a result of the lower auction volumes and additional costs associated with the holidays and winter weather.
 
 
Operating Results in 2007 and 2008
 
Our operations commenced in July 2007 with the acquisition of the Augusta auction and this auction constituted our only operations from that date through 2008. In 2007 we generated approximately $425,000 in revenue compared to approximately $1,000,000 in 2008 with quarterly revenue averaging approximately $212,500 and $250,000 in 2007 and 2008 respectively, an average increase of approximately 18%. This increase was due, in part, to larger volumes of cars sold and increased fees charged being more consistent with industry standards.
 
In 2008 our auction lost approximately $100,000. This loss included a charge of approximately $25,000 for software and related hardware described above as well as approximately $170,000 in amortization of a non-compete agreement and a customer list. The auction also had depreciation expense of approximately $46,000. Excluding depreciation expense because of the need to invest in additional equipment, we incurred about $100,000 in positive cash flow from our operation in 2008.
 
For 2007 our auction lost approximately $185,000 with about $25,000 of non-recurring start-up expense. With amortization of approximately $85,000, we had approximately $100,000 of negative cash flow from operations.
 
We believe that we incurred a total of approximately $142,171 in expenses in 2007 associated with the remodeling, upgrade, and improvement of the facilities, software, and equipment, of which approximately $117,171 was capitalized.
 
The following table sets forth certain information about the Augusta Auto Auction regarding units entered, that is, the number of units brought to the auto auction for sale, the units actually sold, and the conversion rate, that is, the number of units actually sold as a percentage of the number of units brought to the auction for sale, as well as changes in the buy/sell fee revenues comparing the year’s results to 2007 in comparable periods under our ownership:
 
      Q3       Q4    
Six Months
 
Units Entered vs. 2007
    +7.3 %     +33.0 %     +19.9 %
Units Sold vs. 2007
    +11.8 %     -1.0 %     +5.4 %
Conversion Rate 2007
    55.2 %     55.5 %     55.4 %
Conversion Rate 2008
    57.6 %     41.3 %     48.7 %
Change in Buy/Sell Fee Revenues
    +105.2 %     +7.5 %     +51.0 %
 
While 2008 saw large gains in revenues over 2007, the fourth quarter saw impact from the deteriorating economy as well as the effects of December holidays falling in proximity to our sale dates in trumping further gains.  While the Company anticipated generally-weakening economic conditions, reduced productivity at automotive manufacturers, tightening credit and higher consumer interest rates, and other negative pressures affecting trade in general, revenues were up 51% in the six month period year-over-year. In addition, the Company continued to face operating hardships associated with the new operating software instituted in December of 2007 and discontinued in July of 2008.
 
Discussion Regarding the Parent Company’s Operating Results
 
The Company incurred a loss of $910,497 in 2008 compared to a loss of $3,850,881 in 2007. In 2007, approximately $3,000,000 of the loss related to stock issued for services, stock options issued for services and a beneficial conversion of preferred stock to common stock, accruals largely made in restarting the company in its current business. For 2007, the balance of the loss, when compared to the results for 2008, was approximately $60,000 less than that that in 2008. While our revenues were larger in 2008 when compared to 2007 by about $575,000, at the corporate level our salaries for 2008 reflect twelve months of salary for one of our executives compared to three months in the previous year for that individual, as well as the addition of expense for another experienced auction operations manager. During the year, the Company was engaged in additional activities which included expenses for reviewing acquisition opportunities and otherwise. In addition, we incurred a write off of approximately $25,000 in 2008 referred to above and amortization and depreciation expense of about $220,000 in 2008 compared to approximately $100,000 in 2007.
 
In 2008 our corporate expense reflects principally $385,000 in salaries for executives with related taxes and benefits. Corporate general and administrative expenses of approximately $200,000 include legal and accounting expenses, expenses incurred largely for being publicly held, as well as expenses for corporate offices and other general expenses.
 
Liquidity and Need for Additional Capital
 
The Company is currently engaged in its plan of seeking to grow through acquisitions as well as through organic means.  To succeed in doing so, the Company will require additional capital, which the Company anticipates raising through sale of Common Stock.
 
The Company’s liquidity in 2008 was assisted through the closing of a private placement of $130,000 of common stock in the second quarter of 2008. The Company’s liquidity is also supplemented by a $300,000 line of credit with Wachovia Bank, N.A.  Although the Company presently has a certificate of deposit with the same bank of just over $150,000, this line of credit is used to cover some instances in which payments to dealers selling vehicles through the auction is advanced prior to collecting payments from buyers of those vehicles.  The Company anticipates increasing the size of the available line as its sales volume grows.  The bank charges an interest rate on the line of credit equal to prime plus 1.5% on the outstanding daily balance, if any.  The line of credit is secured by all of the Company’s deposits at the bank.
 
 
Also, the Company will ultimately be forced to seek a larger operating facility for its auction operations in the greater Augusta area, since the auction can not accommodate the anticipated growth at its present location.
 
The Company continues to seek additional capital through equity investment. With the acquisition of an auction in Chattanooga, Tennessee, an acquisition that is anticipated to close in late 2009, the Company is planning for those operations to provide sufficient operating capital to fund the corporate overhead not funded by our Augusta auction operations. The general operations of the Chattanooga auction will be supported by a line of credit from the auction’s seller.
 
Financing of Planned Expansions and Other Expenditures
 
When sufficient funding is available, the Company anticipates making its entry into the wholesale vehicle inventory floor plan financing segment of the industry by providing floor plan and “float” financing to its automobile dealer clients.  Floor plan financing refers to medium-length wholesale financing terms, usually to a maximum of 90 to 120 days. “Float” financing refers to shorter-term wholesale vehicle financing-usually to a maximum of 30 to 60 days, often related to promotional sales activities.
 
The Company anticipates using the launch of those local financing activities as a springboard to providing financing services to its clients on a regional and ultimately a national basis.  The Company plans to establish a stand-alone subsidiary to accommodate that business model, and to institute those services in its present and future auction operations and potentially to certain other selected well-qualified clients.  The Company anticipates raising capital to accommodate the funding needs for these operations through a combination of the sale of Common stock and the establishment of credit facilities with banks or other lenders.

Item 9A(T).  Controls and Procedures
 
Inherent Limitations on the Effectiveness of Controls Over Financial Reporting
 
As is typical with most smaller enterprises, our control processes are oriented toward operations, and production of financial statements reflect an outgrowth of operations and results of those operations. Internally, financial statements are a management tool to evaluate the operations and not an end of those operations. We closely monitor the daily results of our cash position and make certain that our cash position is adequate for the foreseeable future. Our financial statements are generated as part of the reporting on our operations, one metric of our operations, and as part of our obligations as a public entity.
 
The goals of our present extensive effort to upgrade the quality of our software are as follows (a) providing an operating environment in which the Company can monitor and/or combine the operating results of any or all its auctions and other operations as it grows through planned acquisitions, (b) exporting all financial and operating data relative to any one or more of its entities directly to our new financial software, thus greatly reducing the labor requirement and associated costs in the accounting area, (c) providing state-of-the-art access through web-based servers housed in diverse geographical locations throughout the United States for both data security and redundancy in the event of catastrophe, and also eliminating local auction software servers in the process, (d) providing the security of having its data stored and mirrored at two diverse locations that will provide protection from loss in the event of any catastrophe at either, (e) providing a complete portal allowing the Company’s auctions to engage in Internet selling through both static and simulcast sales, and give it the additional exposure required to take its place in the current sales technology environment, (f) increasing the ability of the Company’s auctions to compete in the salvage auction industry as a result of having the current technology expected by salvage industry sellers, and which has not been previously available to us, and (g) promoting increased security because the main servers are located off-site in high-security environments in diverse cities and different states.
 
Management, including our Chief Executive Officer who acts as our Chief Financial Officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures will prevent all errors and fraud, and our present efforts are oriented on improving the availability and thoroughness of information to management and its efficient reduction to generate financial statements.  In designing and evaluating the disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance of achieving the desired control objectives.  Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures.  Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected.  These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake.  Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management’s override of the control.  The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.  Over time, controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.  Because of the inherent limitations in a cost-effective control system, misstatements due to error or fraud may occur and not be detected.
 
 
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, such as this report on Form 10-K, is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, particularly our Chief Executive Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding operations and required disclosure.
 
The Company carried out an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures to provide reasonable assurance of achieving their objective pursuant to Exchange Act Rule 13a-14.  Based upon that evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are effective, as of December 31, 2007.
 
Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting
 
Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Exchange Act Rule 13a-15(f).  Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, particularly our chief executive officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on the framework set forth in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO).
 
Our independent auditor has indicated that we have three material weaknesses: (i) Our reconciliations and account analysis is not performed in a timely manner because we do not have full time financial accounting personnel; (ii) Our sales and accounts receivable software is not integrated with our financial accounting software and our accounting personnel do not perform routine reconciliations of data entered on the sales reporting system to appropriate control accounts in the general ledger system with reconciliations made in the aggregate without individual account scrutiny regardless of materiality; and (iii) we made several adjusting entries relating to the recording of options and the accrual of certain liabilities.
 
During most of fiscal 2008, the Company had no full time financial accounting personnel.  As such many reconciliations and account analysis were not performed in a timely manner. However, contemporaneous to year-end, the Company added a certified public accountant with financial reporting experience to its staff.  The Company is also actively seeking a qualified CFO to join its executive team, and feels that these additions will mitigate this issue.
 
As with many vehicle auction companies of its size, the Company’s sales and accounts receivable software is not integrated with its financial accounting software.  In 2008, the accounting personnel did not properly perform routine reconciliations of the results of the data entered on the sales reporting system to the appropriate control accounts in the general ledger system.  As such, certain reconciliations to the control accounts were made in the aggregate without individual account scrutiny, regardless of materiality. With the addition of the accountant, the Company will require reconciliations of the control accounts with each accounting period close.
 
The auditors proposed significant adjusting entries to both the subsidiary and parent companies that comprise the consolidated reporting entity. These entries were principally the result of analyzing the Company’s recording of options and the accrual of certain liabilities.  With the addition of the accountant, the Company will perform this analysis on no less than a quarterly basis.

Change of Control
 
On August 15, 2006, Steven L. Sample acquired for $50,000, 4,000,000 shares, or 46.7%, of the 8,561,000 issued and outstanding shares of Common Stock of the registrant from TAM and its associates.  In addition Mr. Sample paid expenses totaling $138,862, such expenses including the costs associated with completing the bankruptcy proceedings and costs such as arranging for the Company’s SEC filings to be brought current, after which the registrant agreed to effect a one for eight reverse stock split, to issue to Mr. Sample an additional 8,117,500 shares of Common Stock and 500,000 shares of preferred stock.  For the assistance of Harry K. Myers, a principal of Baker #1, Ltd., the entity owning Thacker Asset Management, LLC, the registrant agreed to issue to him 25,000 shares of preferred stock and 450,000 shares of Common Stock.
 
To fulfill its obligations under this agreement, the registrant’s board of directors recommended that its stockholders amend its corporate charter to effect a one for eight reverse stock split, to increase the number of authorized shares of Common Stock to 150,000,000 and to create and establish a series of preferred stock.  The distinguishing feature of the Preferred stock was that each share had 50 votes, but if Mr. Sample or the other recipient transfers the shares to any other entity other than for estate planning purposes, the shares automatically converted on a share for share basis to Common Stock and, in any event, automatically convert to Common Stock upon the death of either recipient.
 
On May 29, 2007, and June 19, 2007, the Corporation’s board of directors issued Common stock and warrants to purchase Common stock in exchange for conversion of all issued and outstanding Preferred shares of the Company.  In exchange for conversion of all the issued and outstanding 525,000 Preferred shares of the Company, the board of directors approved issuance of 525,000 shares of Common stock, of which 95% were issued to Steven L. Sample, its CEO, and 5% were issued to Harry K. Myers, Jr., an affiliate of the Company prior to the acquisition of the majority of the Company's Stock by Steven L. Sample, In addition, the Company issued 1,500,000 warrants, of which 95% were issued to Mr. Sample, and 5% were issued to Mr. Myers, with various exercise prices and certain stipulations attendant to their exercise.  500,000 of those warrants are exercisable immediately with an exercise price of $1.00 with no stipulations. The difference between the $1.00 exercise price and the $2.00 selling price of the common stock at the time of the award was recognized as a beneficial conversion expense to the Company of $500,000 at June 30, 2007. The remaining 1,000,000 warrants are exercisable in the same relative percentages during the vesting periods shown and at the prices indicated in the following table:

Item 13.  Certain Relationships and Related Transactions
 
With respect to certain transactions regarding the restructuring of the Company’s corporate charter and transactions with Mr. Sample, see Item 11. – Change of Control.
 
In 2006 the board of directors named Gwendolyn Sample as the Company’s assistant secretary and granted her an option to acquire 5,000 shares of Common Stock for $0.01 per share.  Ms. Sample is the spouse of Steven L. Sample.  In addition, the board of directors paid L. Palmer Sample, an IT and MIS expert, 10,000 shares of Common Stock for work performed in installing and maintaining the company’s computer network system as well as creating, hosting, and maintaining the Company’s e-mail system and Internet web site.  Palmer is the son of Steven L.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States).  Those standards require that we can plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated 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 audits 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 consolidated 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 consolidated financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall consolidated 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 consolidated financial position of Acacia Automotive, Inc. as of December 31, 2008 and 2007, and the consolidated results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended 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 12 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company has suffered recurring losses from operations and its limited capital resources raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.  Management’s plans in regard to these matters are described in Note 12.  The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
DECEMBER 31, 2008 AND 2007
 
 
NOTE 1 - THE COMPANY

Acacia Automotive, Inc. (“Acacia” or the “Company”) is engaged in acquiring and operating auctions that sell automobiles, trucks, equipment, boats, motor homes, RVs, and other related vehicles.  Currently, Acacia owns one auction in North Augusta, South Carolina.

Acacia was formerly named Gibbs Construction, Inc. (“Gibbs”).  “Gibbs” was a full service, national commercial construction company located in Garland, Texas.  During 1999, Gibbs experienced significant losses associated with certain construction projects, which were bonded by Gibbs’ primary bonding surety.  In the fourth quarter of 1999, Gibbs’ bonding surety notified Gibbs that it would no longer provide completion and payment bonds for Gibbs’ construction projects.  Given these events, Gibbs began a series of negotiations with its bonding surety in December of 1999, which resulted in a written agreement in January of 2000, whereby the bonding surety would provide funds to finish certain projects and required Gibbs to terminate construction on other projects.  These events led to Gibbs inability to satisfy its debts in the ordinary course of business and on April 20, 2000, Gibbs filed a Petition pursuant to Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code.

On July 28, 2000, Gibbs received permission from its Court of Jurisdiction to solicit approval of its Plan of Reorganization.  Gibbs continued to operate on a limited basis pending approval of its Plan of Reorganization.  On November 10, 2000, Gibbs completed its Plan of Reorganization pursuant to an order of the court as follows:

a)  
Gibbs transferred all of its assets and liabilities to the Gibbs Construction, Inc. Creditor Trust (“Trust”).


b)  
Gibbs issued 501,000 shares of its authorized but previously unissued common stock to the Trust in settlement of unsecured creditor claims.


c)  
Gibbs approved issuance of 1,000,000 shares of a newly created preferred stock, with an aggregate liquidation preference value of $200,000 and a six percent (6%) non-cumulative dividend, to the bonding surety.


d)  
Gibbs issued 4,000,000 shares of its authorized but previously unissued common stock to Thacker Asset Management, LLC (TAM), a Texas limited liability company, in exchange for certain operating assets and the obligation to complete certain construction projects of TAM.

Gibbs did not obtain a court ordered final decree from the bankruptcy court due to the difficulties encountered with the implementation of the reorganization plan.  All operating activities ceased in 2002.  On June 26, 2006, the bankruptcy trustee requested and received an Order for Final Decree.  The 501,000 shares of common stock issued to the Trust were abandoned and returned to the Company on October 5, 2006.  These shares have been cancelled.

On July 25, 2006, the Board of Directors of the Company met and approved the following actions:

·
Changed the Company’s name to Acacia Automotive, Inc.

·
Authorized 2,000,000 shares of $0.001 par value preferred stock and authorized the Board of Directors to:

a.)  
set the number of shares constituting each series of preferred stock

b.)  
establish voting rights, powers, preferences and conversion rights

·
Increased the authorized number of common shares to 150,000,000 and decreased the par value to $0.001.

b.)

c.)  
Each share of Series A Preferred Stock is convertible into one share of common stock at the option of the holders.

d.)  
The holders of Series A Preferred Shares are certified to 50 votes on all matters to be voted on by the shareholders of the Company for each share of Series A Preferred Stock held.

·

a.)  
8,567,500 shares of common stock

b.)  
525,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock

c.)  
Aggregated issuance fair value was $150,262

Certain of the actions approved by the Board of Directors on July 25, 2006, require the approval of the shareholders of the Company, which was gained in a Special Meeting of Shareholders on February 1, 2007, and are reflected in the accompanying financial statements.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

USE OF ESTIMATES - Preparing the Company’s financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  Actual results could differ from these estimates.

CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS - The Company considers all short-term investments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

CERTIFICATE OF DEPOSIT (RESTRICTED) – The Company holds a certificate of deposit maturing in January 2009 that is pledged as a partial compensating balance with the promissory note (line of credit).  The certificate automatically renewed in January 2009 for nine months.

ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE - The Company’s receivables are recorded when billed, advanced, or accrued and represent claims against third parties that will be settled in cash.  The carrying value of the Company’s receivables, net of allowance for doubtful accounts, represents their estimated net realizable value.  The Company estimates its allowance for doubtful accounts based on historical collection trends, the age of the outstanding receivables and existing economic conditions.

PROPERTY, PLANT AND EQUIPMENT - Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation.  Major renewals and improvements are capitalized, while minor replacements, maintenance and repairs are charged to current operations.  Depreciation is computed by applying the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives which are generally three to fifteen years.  Depreciation expense for the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007 totaled $48,630 and $15,986, respectively.

CONCENTRATION OF CREDIT RISK AND FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS - The Company maintains cash balances at financial institutions, which at times, exceed federally insured amounts. The Company has not experienced any material losses in such accounts.

The carrying amounts of cash and cash equivalents, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate fair value due to the short-term nature of these instruments.

FAIR VALUE ESTIMATES – In September 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 157 “Fair Value Measurements”.  The objective of  SFAS 157 is to increase consistency and comparability in fair value measurements and to expand disclosures about fair value measurements. SFAS 157 defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. SFAS 157 applies under other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements and does not require any new fair value measurements.

The Company measures it options and warrants at fair value in accordance with SFAS 157. SFAS 157 specifies a valuation hierarchy based on whether the inputs to those valuation techniques are observable or unobservable. Observable inputs reflect market data obtained from independent sources, while unobservable inputs reflect the Company’s own assumptions. These two types of inputs have created the following fair value hierarchy:


 
Level 1 – Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets;
 
Level 2 – Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets; and  drivers are observable in active markets; and
 
Level 3 – Valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.

FAIR VALUE ESTIMATES (continued)

This hierarchy requires the Company to minimize the use of unobservable inputs and to use observable market data, if available, when estimating fair value. The fair value of the options and warrants and long-lived assets held for sale at December 31, 2008 was as follows:

The provisions of SFAS 157 are effective for fair value measurements made in fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2007.

Options and warrants were valued using the Black-Scholes model.

Long-lived assets held for sale were valued by gross proceeds realized.

RECLASSIFICATIONS – Certain reclassifications have been made to previously reported amounts, so that the prior year’s presentation is comparative with the current year’s presentation.

COMPENSATED ABSENCES -   The Company has not accrued a liability in accordance with FAS 43 as the amount of the liability cannot be reasonably estimated at December 31, 2008.

REVENUE RECOGNITION – Revenue is recognized when realized. Auction and related fees are recorded when sales are consummated at time of vehicle sale.

INCOME TAXES - The Company recognizes the amount of taxes payable or refundable for the current year and recognizes deferred tax liabilities and assets or the expected future tax consequences of events and transactions that have been recognized in the Company’s financial statements or tax returns. The Company currently has substantial net operating loss carryforwards.  The Company has recorded a valuation allowance equal to the net deferred tax assets due to the uncertainty of the ultimate realization of the deferred tax assets.

ADVERTISING COSTS - Advertising costs are expensed as incurred.  Advertising expense for the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007 amounted to $23,446 and $17,739, respectively.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

CONTINGENCIES - Certain conditions may exist as of the date the financial statements are issued, which may result in a loss to the Company but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur.  The Company’s management and its legal counsel assess such contingent liabilities, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise of judgment.  In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against the Company or unasserted claims that may result in such proceedings, the Company’s legal counsel evaluates the perceived merits of any legal proceedings or unasserted claims as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought therein.

If the assessment of a contingency indicates that it is possible that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, the estimated liability would be accrued in the Company’s financial statements.  If the assessment indicates that a potentially material loss contingency is not probable but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, then the nature of the contingent liability, together with an estimate of range of possible loss if determinable and material, would be disclosed.

Loss contingencies considered remote are generally not disclosed unless they involve guarantees, in which case the guarantees would be disclosed.

STOCK BASED COMPENSATION - Effective at the beginning of fiscal year 2006, the Company adopted the provisions of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123R “Share-Based Payment” (“SFAS No. 123(R)”) to account for stock-based compensation. Under SFAS No. 123(R), the Company estimates the fair value of stock options granted using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The fair value for awards that are expected to vest is then amortized on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period of the award, which is generally the option vesting term. The amount of expense attributed is based on estimated forfeiture rate, which is updated based on actual forfeitures as appropriate. This option pricing model requires the input of highly subjective assumptions, including the expected volatility of our common stock, pre-vesting forfeiture rate and an option’s expected life. The financial statements include amounts that are based on the Company’s best estimates and judgments. Prior to fiscal year 2006, the Company accounted for stock-based compensation plans using the intrinsic value method prescribed in Accounting Principles Board (“APB”) Opinion No. 25, “Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees.”  During the years ended December 31, 2008 and 2007, the Company issued stock awards to employees in the amounts of $0.00 and $1,020,000, respectively.

COMMON STOCK PURCHASE WARRANTS - The Company has issued common stock purchase warrants as payments to individuals for providing services or financial resources to the Company.  The Company’s management selected the Black-Scholes valuation method to calculate the fair value of the common stock purchase warrants.

IMPAIRMENT OF LONG-LIVED ASSETS AND GOODWILL - The Company routinely evaluates the carrying value of its long-lived assets, including good will. The Company records an impairment loss when events or circumstances indicate that a long-lived asset’s carrying value may not be recovered. These events may include changes in the manner in which we intend to use an asset or a decision to sell an asset.  The Company’s management believes that no impairment is deemed necessary at December 31, 2008.

RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS - In December 2007, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued SFAS No. 141 (revised 2007), “Business Combinations” (“SFAS No. 141(R)”) and SFAS No. 160, “Noncontrolling Interest in Consolidated Financial Statements” (“SFAS No. 160”). These new standards represent the outcome of the FASB’s joint project with the International Accounting Standards Board and are intended to improve, simplify and converge internationally the accounting for business combinations and the reporting of noncontrolling interests in consolidated financial statements.

SFAS No. 141(R) replaces SFAS No. 141, “Business Combinations,” however, it retains the fundamental requirements of the former Statement that the acquisition method of accounting (previously referred to as the purchase method) be used for all business
combinations and for an acquirer to be identified for each business. This Statement defines the acquirer as the entity that obtains control of one or more businesses in the business combination and establishes the acquisition date as the date that the acquirer achieves control. The new standard requires the acquiring entity in a business combination to recognize all (and only) the assets acquired and liabilities assumed in the transaction; establishes the acquisition-date fair value as the measurement objective for all assets acquired and liabilities assumed; and requires the acquirer to disclose to investors and other users all of the information they need to evaluate and under the nature and financial effect of the business combination.

SFAS No. 160 amends Accounting Research Bulletin No. 51, “Consolidated Financial Statements,” to establish accounting and reporting standards for the noncontrolling interest in a subsidiary and for the deconsolidation of a subsidiary. This Statement clarifies that a noncontrolling interest in a subsidiary is an ownership interest in the consolidated entity that should be reported as equity in the consolidated financial statements. This Statement changes the way the consolidated income statement is presented by requiring net income to be reported at amounts that include the amounts attributable to both the parent and the noncontrolling interest and to disclose those amounts on the face of the income statement. It also aligns the reporting of noncontrolling interest in subsidiaries with the requirements in International Accounting Standard 27.

Both SFAS No. 141(R) and SFAS No. 160 are effective beginning in our fiscal 2010. SFAS No. 141 (R) will be applied to business combinations that are consummated beginning in fiscal 2010, and SFAS No. 160 will be applied prospectively to all noncontrolling interests, including any that arose before fiscal 2010. We are currently evaluating these Statements and have not yet determined their effect on our consolidated financial statements.

In September 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 157, “Fair Value Measurements” (“SFAS 157”) which addresses how companies should measure fair value when they are required to use a fair value measure for recognition or disclosure purposes under generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”). As a result of SFAS 157 there is now a common definition of fair value to be used throughout GAAP. The FASB believes that the new standard will make the measurement of fair value more consistent and comparable and improve disclosures about those measures. SFAS 157 will be effective for the Company for fiscal year 2009. Management is currently evaluating the impact of the statement on the Company. Management does not believe the adoption of SFAS 157 will have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

In March 2008, the FASB issued SFAS No. 161, “Disclosures about Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities” (“SFAS 161”). SFAS 161 requires entities to provide enhanced disclosures about derivative instruments and hedging activities. SFAS 161 is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after November 15, 2008. The Company does not currently have any derivative instruments or hedging activities.
