Significant Employees

We have no significant employees other than our officers.

We are not currently involved in any legal proceedings nor do we have any knowledge of any threatened litigation.

Transactions with Related Persons

 

During the fiscal years ended December 31, 2013, December 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, there were no transactions, and there are no currently proposed transactions, in which the Company was or is to be a participant and the amount involved exceeds the lesser of $120,000 or one percent of the average of the Company’s total assets at year end for the last two completed fiscal years, and in which any related person had or will have a direct or indirect material interest.

We do not have a nominating committee or a nominating committee charter. Further, we do not have a policy with regard to the consideration of any director candidates recommended by security holders. To date, no security holders have made any such recommendations. The entire Board performs all functions that would otherwise be performed by committees. Given the present size of our Board it is not practical for us to have committees. If we are able to grow our business and increase our operations, we intend to expand the size of our Board and allocate responsibilities accordingly.

We reimburse our directors for expenses incurred in connection with attending Board meetings but we do not pay our directors fees or other cash compensation for services rendered as a director.

Employment Agreement

               On March 1, 2007, we entered into an employment agreement with our CEO, Mr. Wei-Rur Chen (the “Original Employment Agreement”). The Original Employment Agreement was for a term of five (5) years from the effective date, March 1, 2007.

Compensation Committee

At this time, we do not have a compensation committee. The salaries of our executive officers are determined by our Board. Our Board determines the compensation of our executive officers based on our financial and operating performance and success.  As we continue to grow, we may form a compensation committee charged with the oversight of our executive compensation plans, policies and programs, and the authority to determine and approve the compensation of our executive officers and make recommendations with respect to the same.

Audit Committee

We do not have a separate audit committee at this time.  The entire Board shall oversee our audits and auditing procedures.

Stockholder Communications

 

                  Currently, we do not have a policy with regard to the consideration of any director candidates recommended by stockholders. To date, no stockholders have made any such recommendations.

 

 


 

 

Risk Oversight

 

While our management is responsible for assessing and managing risks to the Company, the Board takes an active role, as a whole, in overseeing the material risks facing the Company, including operational, financial, legal and regulatory and strategic and reputational risks. Risks are considered in virtually every business decision and as part of the Company’s overall business strategy. The Board regularly engages in discussion of financial, legal, technological, economic and other risks. Because overseeing risk is an ongoing process that is inherent in the Company’s strategic decisions, our Board discusses risk throughout the year at other meetings in relation to specific proposed actions. Additionally, our Board exercises its risk oversight function in approving new product research and development projects, large marketing engagements, the annual budget and quarterly forecasts and in reviewing the Company’s long-range strategic and financial plans with management.

 

Attendance at Meetings

                

The Board held four (4) meetings during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.  Each incumbent director attended or participated in at least 75% of the aggregate of (1) the number of meetings of the Board held in the fiscal year 2013 during the period he or she served as a director and (2) the number of meetings of committees on which he or she served that were held during the period of his or her service.

 

The Board held four (4) meetings during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012. Each incumbent director attended or participated in at least 75% of the aggregate of (1) the number of meetings of the Board held in the fiscal year 2012 during the period he or she served as a director and (2) the number of meetings of committees on which he or she served that were held during the period of his or her service.

 

The Company expects all directors to attend each annual meeting of stockholders, absent good reason. 

 

Director Independence

We are not currently listed on any national securities exchange or quoted on an inter-dealer quotation system that has a requirement that certain of the members of the Board be independent. However, the Board has made a determination as to which of its members are independent. In evaluating the independence of its members, the Board utilizes the definition of “independence” developed by the Nasdaq Stock Market and in SEC rules, including the rules relating to the independence standards in audit committee members and the non-employee director definition of Rule 16b-3 promulgated under the Exchange Act.

 

We believe that Mr. Hsiu-Fu Liu is currently an “independent” director as that term is defined in the listing standards of the Nasdaq Stock Market and SEC rules, including the rules relating to the independence standards for audit committee members and the non-employee director definition of Rule 16b-3 promulgated under the Exchange Act.

 

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

 

The members of the Company’s Board, its executive officers, and persons who hold more than 10% of its outstanding common stock are subject to the reporting requirements of Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the Exchange Act, which requires them to file reports with respect to their ownership of the Company’s common stock and their transactions in such common stock. Based upon the Company’s review of the Section 16(a) reports in its records for fiscal year 2012 transactions in the Company’s common stock, the Company believes that all reporting requirements under Section 16(a) for fiscal year 2012 were met in a timely manner by its directors, executive officers, and greater than 10% beneficial owners.

 

 


 

 

Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management of Company

   The following table lists, as of September 30, 2014 (the “Record Date”), the number of shares of our common stock that are beneficially owned by (i) each person or entity known to us to be the beneficial owner of more than 5% of the outstanding common stock; (ii) each officer and director of our Company; and (iii) all officers and directors as a group. Information relating to beneficial ownership of common stock by our principal shareholders and management is based upon information furnished by each person using “beneficial ownership” concepts under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission. Under these rules, a person is deemed to be a beneficial owner of a security if that person has or shares voting power, which includes the power to vote or direct the voting of the security, or investment power, which includes the power to vote or direct the voting of the security. The person is also deemed to be a beneficial owner of any security of which that person has a right to acquire beneficial ownership within 60 days. Under the Securities and Exchange Commission rules, more than one person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of the same securities, and a person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of securities as to which he or she may not have any pecuniary beneficial interest. Except as noted below, each person has sole voting and investment power.

Applicable percentage of ownership in the following table is based on 67,448,890 shares of common stock outstanding as of September 30, 2014.
