ITEM 1. DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS
 
(a) Overview of the Company, Products and Target Markets

Trulite, Inc. (“Trulite”, “we”, “us”, “our”, the “Company” or the “Registrant”) is an emerging technology company engaged in the development and production of portable and stationary products that produce hydrogen for the generation of electricity for the commercial and consumer markets. The Company has developed, tested, sold and delivered its first hydrogen storage product - the HydroCell, an environmentally-friendly alternative to battery power. The Company has submitted two patent applications for the HydroCell.

In August, 2005, the Company demonstrated its first, complete, commercially packaged, integrated, hydrogen fuel cell power system. In September 2005, the Company introduced its Kitty Hawk system. The product consists of three technologies: one that generates hydrogen gas from powered chemical compounds (the HydroCell, which is a patented technology); and one that transforms the hydrogen gas into electricity (the fuel cell stack, which is not a patented technology) and, one that controls the flow of hydrogen for the actual generation of electricity (the control technology, which is not a patented technology). The Company believes the Kitty Hawk is the least expensive energy source on the market capable of producing 25 watts of power for several hours (as an example, 25 watts of power is sufficient to power a DVD player for several hours while concurrently charging a cell phone). It was Trulite’s integration of its patented technology (the Hydrocell) with its unpatented control program and unpatented fuel cell stack that created an integrated hydrogen fuel cell power system called the Kitty Hawk.

In November 2005, the Company received its first orders for twenty-five Kitty Hawk systems. The units were manufactured in its Utah product development facility and were delivered to a selected target audience in February and March, 2006. Also in November, 2005, the Company received a $25,000 contract from Protonex Technology (“Protonex”) to develop three high energy density prototype HydroCells.

The Company is currently developing enhanced versions of the Kitty Hawk system: the Kitty Hawk 3X and the Kitty Hawk 4. The Kitty Hawk 3X is designed to be a 50 Watt integrated power system that will be able to generate electricity for 3 to 4 hours. The first set of ten Kitty Hawk 3X systems is expected to be manufactured and available in July 2006 to selected commercial customers for field testing. It is anticipated that an additional forty units will be manufactured by the end of August, 2006 for sale to selected commercial customers for more comprehensive and expansive field testing. Field testing of the units is expected to last 6 weeks. Upon completion of field testing of the Kitty Hawk 3X and receipt of the appropriate regulatory approvals, we anticipate units will be available for sale and delivery into selected commercial and consumer markets some time during the fourth quarter of 2006. The expected development and manufacturing costs of the Kitty Hawk 3X units are $500,000, including capital expenditures of $200,000.

Trulite is also developing the Kitty Hawk 4 system, a more robust and powerful Kitty Hawk system capable of generating up to two times the power output of the current Kitty Hawk 3X unit. The Kitty Hawk 4 system is designed to be a 100 Watt integrated power system able to generate electricity for up to 4 hours. The Kitty Hawk 4 system is anticipated to be available for field testing by the end of the second quarter, 2007. We anticipate manufacturing approximately 50 units for sale to selected commercial customers for field testing. Field testing is anticipated to take 8 to 10 weeks. Upon completion of field testing of the Kitty Hawk 4 system by the end of the third quarter of 2007, we anticipate units will be available for sale and delivery into selected commercial and consumer markets. The expected development and manufacturing costs of the Kitty Hawk 4 units will be approximately $1,500,000, including capital expenditures of $279,000. Funding for product development and manufacturing are expected to come from bridge loans provided by Contango Capital Partners, LP (“CCP”), external investors and revenues generated from sales of the Kitty Hawk 4 units.

In 2006, we anticipate hiring a Chief Operating Officer and a Vice President of Product Development. The objectives of hiring additional senior management personnel will be to ensure the successful operations of the Company and to ensure the on-going product development of the Kitty Hawk integrated power system.

Trulite’s strategy is to leverage its unique hydrogen source technology and fuel cell technology to develop fuel cell products to address end-user applications in two identified markets: Industrial Remote Monitoring, specifically, the pipeline and well head market for remote sensing and monitoring of operating conditions in oil and gas fields and Recreational Off-Site Usage. The market segment for recreational off-site usage is focused on camping including a very specific niche target of environmentally conscious camper.

Since inception, the Company has sought to develop alternative energy sources to conventional portable and stationary technologies, such as batteries and diesel generation units, for the commercial and consumer markets. Although the Company is not focused on the military market, the Company anticipates pursuing opportunities in this market through strategic relationships with companies such as Protonex, as well as measuring the risks and rewards to the Company for developing more specialized products for the military market.

(b) History of Trulite

Trulite was incorporated in Delaware on July 15, 2004. Later that month, Trulite purchased all membership interests of Trulite Technology, LC (“Trulite Technology”), a Utah limited liability company, and merged with Trulite Technology, whereby Trulite survived the merger. The Company is engaged in researching, developing, manufacturing and commercializing hydrogen generation and storage technology and integrated fuel cell products.

In January, 2002, members of Trulite Technology submitted a proposal in response to a Small Business Innovation Research (“SBIR”) solicitation from the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (“DTRA”) to research and develop a high energy density, hydrogen source to ultimately power nuclear, chemical and biological detection equipment in the field. The intended applications of the hydrogen fuel source were for use by the military as a source of portable power.

2

 

Trulite Technology was incorporated in May 20, 2002, upon receipt of notification from the DTRA that Trulite Technology would receive a 6 month, $100,000, Phase 1 SBIR award to develop a hydrogen fuel source (that is, a technology for producing hydrogen gas) that could convert hydrogen gas into electricity. All patent, software and other technical rights in any products are retained by Trulite.

Work on the project commenced in August 2002, and in January, 2003, Trulite Technology built and tested its first, dry, chemical hydride, hydrogen fuel source. In January, 2003 Trulite Technology submitted a proposal to the United States Air Force (“USAF”) for a very high energy density hydrogen source for larger fuel cell systems. Trulite Technology received notification from the USAF in May, 2003 that it had been selected for another six month, $100,000 Phase 1 SBIR award. All patent, software and other technical rights in any products are retained by Trulite.

In January, 2004, Trulite Technology received an order from Jadoo Power Systems for two prototype chemical hydride cartridges. These were shipped in March, 2004. Trulite Technology also received an order from the Naval Research Laboratory for four larger cartridges. These were shipped in July, 2004. In October of 2003, Trulite had been introduced to William Jackson Berger (a.k.a. “John Berger”) of CCP through Jadoo Power Systems. CCP became interested in Trulite Technology’s hydrogen source technology, and Trulite Technology concluded its first round of private funding with CCP in July, 2004. Also in July, 2004, Trulite Technology merged with, and transferred all if its interests to, the Company, a newly-formed Delaware corporation.

In February 2005, the Company entered into a strategic relationship with Synexus Energy, Inc., a supplier of fuel cell stack and control technology ("Synexus").  Synexus, a research and development company is working on a product that can be used in conjunction with Trulite's Hydrocell and is primarily funded by CCP.  Trulite has a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) and a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) in place with Synexus, who was chosen as the preferred provider to Trulite because it was willing to develop its fuel cell technology at a pace that was driven by Trulite’s timeframe.  In January, 2006, Trulite reached an agreement for an option to purchase Synexus for cash and Trulite common stock if Synexus achieves established performance goals (the "Option Agreement").  Prior to final execution of the Option Agreement, CCP made the decision to stop providing funds to Synexus, which is expected to deplete its funds not later than May 31, 2006.  Synexus is expected to dissolve in the near future, and its equipment is expected to be transferred to CCP.  Once Synexus is dissolved, CCP is expected to transfer the equipment to Trulite at no cost.

(c) Overview of the Alternative Fuel Industry

There are a number of factors which management believes are creating significant changes in the landscape of the alternative fuel industry, which in turn, present significant opportunities for hydrogen generation and fuel cell technologies:

3


1) Conventional hydrocarbon energy sources (oil and natural gas) face increasing problems with maintaining supply in the face of growing global demand (Simmons & Co, a Houston based investment bank focused on energy, predicts oil will average $200 per barrel in 2010);

2) Power reliability (that is, the electric power provided to commercial and consumer markets through the electrical grid) is becoming an increasing problem in the US and other countries due to aging infrastructure, necessitating an alternative off-grid power source;

3) The increasing proliferation of electronic devices from cell phones to portable digital movie and music players to personal computers are becoming increasingly power hungry as their capabilities increase; it is becoming more challenging for conventional battery technology to keep pace with increasing power requirements resulting in power supply problems in these devices;

4) Increasing global environmental and regulatory issues are making the use of hydrocarbons ever more difficult; and

5) Increasing geopolitical issues are causing global security concerns related to availability and price of oil and natural gas.

Due to these pressures, we believe the energy industry will change dramatically before the end of this decade. Trulite also believes both portable and stationary hydrogen fuel cell products provide practical, cost efficient solutions to the reliability and longevity demands of today’s high technology devices, as well as providing new, alternative solutions to existing power requirement problems by providing reliable alternative power sources.
 
Fuel cell and alternative fuel source technology is still being developed and refined. In many applications applied research and technology development remains a vitally important part of the industry. Reliability, cost and safe deployment of this technology will be key to initial successes.
 
A fuel cell is a non-mechanical device (it is a very thin membrane similar to a computer chip) which converts hydrogen gas (the fuel source) and oxygen into electricity and water. The water is a non-toxic by-product resulting from the process of generating electricity and is eliminated during the electricity conversion process. Each fuel cell (that is, each “chip”) produces a given amount of power when the hydrogen and water are combined (the power output is measured in watts). When several fuel cells are combined or “stacked”, they create a fuel cell stack. For example, when several fuel cells are combined into a fuel cell stack, the fuel cell stack is capable of producing in excess of 25 watts of power. The power output is capable, for example, of powering a DVD player and charging a cell phone simultaneously.
 
There will be winners and losers in the commercialization process as the technology develops. However, it is too early to tell which technologies will ultimately dominate in certain applications, although the future direction appears clear in some major application areas, such as Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (PEMFC) technology in fuel cell cars.

4

 
 
Products utilizing fuel cell technology include fuel cell buses, numerous military applications, auxiliary power units, remote power and other transportation applications. Broad commercialization of fuel cell usage depends on reducing per unit costs. Products will be commercialized at price points that make sense to both commercial and consumer markets. Stationary and portable applications currently lead the way, as fuel cells replace batteries in the portable and stationary, light industrial and transportation applications.
 
Portable applications such as premium battery markets, where fuel cells improve run time and can be cost competitive, appear to be leading the early efforts of commercialization. This initial focus should also help demonstrate product performance, reliability and durability, reduce production costs, establish codes and standards for fuel cell technology, build a skilled labor force, develop a hydrogen infrastructure and create public awareness and acceptance.
 
An industry survey indicated that approximately 60% of the companies surveyed are focusing their efforts on PEM (Proton Exchange Membrane) fuel cells (or closely related Direct Methanol fuel cell) technologies. PEM fuel cells continue to be of most interest to fuel cell developers. The report also suggests that government actions to address fuel costs, supply risks, and the environment could positively and dramatically impact fuel cell industry prospects in the next two to three years.
 
The industry survey also indicated that approximately 38 companies are expected to offer pre-commercial (demonstration units) or commercial products in 2006. General trends indicate that in the next three to five years delays in product launch might occur due to either fuel cell performance issues or non technical issues such as lack of codification of codes and standards. These delays may result in slow adoption of fuel cell products in both the commercial and consumer markets.
 
(d) Trulite’s Products

Trulite has two products: the HydroCell, a hydrogen generation and storage product, and the Kitty Hawk power system, a commercially packaged, integrated, hydrogen fuel cell power system.

Trulite’s HydroCell is a technology that utilizes a cartridge filled with a chemical hydride (sodium borohydride) that, when injected with water, produces hydrogen on demand for portable and stationary power devices. Each cartridge can generate up to 500 milliliters/minute of hydrogen. Each cartridge is compact and lightweight, weighing only 175 grams. Power to weight ratio (the ability to generate the same or more energy by cutting the weight of the generating device) is one of many important factors in gaining market acceptance for alternative power sources. The HydroCell technology enables fuel cells to run at least two to three (2-3) times longer than existing fuel cell and battery technology, while weighing significantly less than these technologies. The key to the HydroCell's efficient design is that it uses moist air exiting a Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell to produce hydrogen for the PEM fuel cell stack. Water recycling not only enables the HydroCell to produce several liters of hydrogen from a lightweight package, but also means that the HydroCell produces hydrogen only when the fuel cell stack is operating. The proprietary control technology used inside the HydroCell and the cartridges make possible the safe production of hydrogen. The internal cartridge components allow the energy dense chemical hydride to react with the injected water in a controlled manner while providing for complete reactivity of the material.

5

 
 
The initial product we seek to market (the HydroCell) is a metallic cylinder approximately 2 inches in diameter and 6 inches in height which holds the chemical hydride. When water is injected into the cylinder, it creates a chemical reaction which generates hydrogen gas. The hydrogen gas is transformed into electricity via the fuel cell, which then powers the product in which it is installed. The container is sealed to prevent moisture from entering the cylinder and to ensure the chemical hydride does not escape the cylinder. The cylinder is robust and will not break if dropped, resulting in a reliable, robust product which is easy to manufacture.

Trulite believes the significance of the HydroCell is the proprietary, chemical hydride mixture and chemical reaction process wherein the generation of hydrogen does not occur until water is added to the chemical hydride. Given that the hydride is inert until water is added, a Trulite cartridge can be kept in storage for a minimum of three years without losing its energy density. In other words, the energy level doesn’t get weaker over time. We believe the Hydrocell has the highest energy density of any known portable hydrogen source currently available in the market. This is a significant difference from offerings from some of our competitors, as we believe there are no “dry hydride” technologies currently available to the consumer market. Trulite’s dry hydride technology for generating hydrogen makes it possible to build HydroCell cartridges capable of generating hydrogen for up to 72 hours continuously by increasing the size of the cartridge and adding more chemical hydride.

We believe the HydroCell’s design offers the following advantages:

- SAFETY: Hydrogen is produced only as it is needed, resulting in increasing safety;

- RELIABILITY: The HydroCell has few moving parts, making it a reliable fuel source;

- REUSABILITY AND COST: The HydroCell capsules are inexpensive compared with the costs associated with generating an equal amount of energy from conventional energy sources over the life span of one HydroCell cartridge, thus reducing the total cost of ownership to consumer;

- DISPOSABILITY: The HydroCell capsules are disposable. The by-product is an inert, solid, chemical oxide with minimal health hazard capable of being discarded in landfills; and

- SHELF LIFE: The HydroCell can lie dormant for up to thirty-six (36) months without losing its energy density.

The Company has submitted two patent applications for the HydroCell.

The second product we seek to market is the Kitty Hawk power system, a commercially packaged, integrated, hydrogen fuel cell power system. The Kitty Hawk product consists of three technologies: one that generates hydrogen gas from powered chemical compounds (the HydroCell, which is patented); one that transforms the hydrogen gas into electricity (the fuel cell stack, which is unpatented) and one that controls the flow of hydrogen for the actual generation of electricity (the control technology, which is unpatented). The Kitty Hawk unit is rectangular in shape, weighs almost eight pounds and is easily portable.

6

 

The control technology is an integrated, programmable electronic circuit (that is, the circuit can be programmed to perform specific tasks) that is used to control the flow of hydrogen and oxygen to the fuel stack. The purpose of the control technology is to ensure the proper amount of hydrogen is generated to power the device which is attached to the Kitty Hawk product. If too much or too little hydrogen is generated, the efficiency of the Kitty Hawk is significantly reduced, which results in power loss and the unit’s inability to power the devices attached to the Kitty Hawk.

Trulite manufactures the fuel cell stack, develops product enhancements and engages in new product development on the fuel cell stack. The Kitty Hawk power system was introduced by Trulite in September, 2005. The Kitty Hawk product uses the HydroCell system to generate hydrogen for up three hours and is capable of generating 25 watts of useable power. That is, although the product generates approximately 40 to 50 watts of power, the system requires approximately 15 to 20 watts of power internally to run the unit. The result is 25 watts of usable power, which is more than sufficient to run a radio while concurrently charging a cell phone. Trulite manufactured and delivered twenty-five units to selected customers in February and March, 2006.

Although the Kitty Hawk power system is an integrated, hydrogen fuel cell power system, the HydroCell can be marketed and sold separately to companies wanting a dry hydride technology for generating hydrogen. For example, Trulite has sold the HydroCell to Protonex for military applications. Although the fuel cell stack can be marketed and sold separately, Trulite has no plans to either market or sell the fuel cell stack separately. Trulite has no plans to market and sell the control technology separately.

(e) Current Status of Projects

Trulite is currently developing the next generation of the Kitty Hawk (the KH-3X), which is expected to have a number of enhancements: improved physical design; noise reduction; faster start up cycle (several seconds versus 2 to 3 minutes); fuel level gauge to indicate the level of energy remaining in the cartridge; an attached carrying handle; a status display screen indicating the power output of the unit; interior technical modifications to eliminate hose pinching; and increased power output to 35 to 40 watts of power. Each of these enhancements will require several steps including designing and building the enhancement; testing the enhancement to ensure it performs as specified; incorporating and testing the enhancement in the Kitty Hawk unit; and, finally testing the Kitty Hawk unit in a customer environment.

The design, build and test of the enhancements began in March, 2006 and are expected to be completed by the third quarter of 2006. The testing of the enhancements is an on-going process. As each enhancement is built, it is tested. Each time a new enhancement is added to the Kitty Hawk unit, the entire Kitty Hawk 3X system is tested to ensure all of the enhancements work as an integrated system. Beginning in mid-June, 2006, ten units will be manufactured for delivery to selected customers for field testing. If the Kitty Hawk 3X unit successfully completes field testing by the end of September, 2006, it is expected to be commercially available for sale and delivery into selected commercial and consumer markets shortly thereafter.

7

 

Trulite is also developing the Kitty Hawk 4. The product will be designed to have a power output two times great than the Kitty Hawk 3X. Product enhancements to the Kitty Hawk 4 will include: reducing the overhead required to run the Kitty Hawk 4 power system; increased ruggedness; and enhanced ergonomics and physical design. Each of these enhancements will also require going through the proving process set forth above prior to commercial availability.

The design of the Kitty Hawk 4 system is anticipated to commence in September, 2006 and is anticipated to be completed by December, 2006. The Kitty Hawk 4 system is anticipated to be available for field testing by the end of the first quarter of 2007. Field testing is anticipated to take eight to ten weeks. Upon completion of field testing of the Kitty Hawk 4 system, expected to be by the end of the second quarter of 2007, we anticipate units will be available for sale and delivery into selected commercial and consumer markets.

In November, 2005, Trulite established a manual production line sufficient to meet a 5 fuel cell per month and 35 HydroCell (the hydrogen cartridge) per month rate. Our near term goal is for the manufacturing facilities to ramp up to meet a potential demand of 20 fuel cells per month and 200 HydroCell per month. At such time as demand reaches a run rate of 80 fuel cells per month and 800 HydroCells per month, we anticipate that manufacturing will transition from manual to automated processes. Thereafter, outsourcing relationships are expected to be established for a few simple, non-proprietary sub-components. Full outsourcing likely will begin once volume demand approaches 250 fuel cells per month and 1500 HydroCells per month. This outsourcing event will trigger the beginning of the shift to a final assembly and test facility at our own manufacturing site located in Texas.

In 2005, Trulite generated $16,667 in revenues from the sale of the HydroCell. There are outstanding purchase orders for the sale of Kitty Hawk and HydroCells units valued at $11,178.

Management intends to focus its initial efforts on the industrial remote monitoring (the monitoring and remote sensing of oil and gas pipelines, oil wells and gas wells) and recreational camping markets, both of which have a need for a large amount of portable power on demand.

(f) Market Opportunities

Trulite believes its integrated Kitty Hawk units powered by Trulite’s HydroCell technology provides consumers with a superior alternative energy product as compared to existing products powered by lithium-ion batteries. As compared to conventional battery technologies, the HydroCell does not lose the ability to generate electricity even when put in storage for long periods of time (up to three years). By comparison, conventional lithium ion batteries will lose their ability to generate energy if they are not used before their expiration date. Trulite believes it has the ability to bring this power to numerous kinds of portable electronic devices through its Kitty Hawk power system. The primary markets we currently seek to enter for Trulite’s products are the pipeline and well head market for remote sensing and monitoring of operating conditions in oil and gas fields, and the high end recreational camping market. The opportunity in the pipeline market resulted from estimating the number of oil and gas wells in the United States (the data was obtained from available public information from companies such as Shell, ChevronTexaco and British Petroleum), estimating the existing operating and maintenance costs to service and repair these wells, assuming a 20% adoption rate over the next five years for companies implementing a Trulite Kitty Hawk solution and calculating the cost differential between existing operating costs and Trulite’s Kitty Hawk solution. Trulite intends to seek out oil field service companies, trying to identify the most viable operators and influence both large and small energy companies, as well as other providers to the oil and gas industry, to adopt the Kitty Hawk integrated power system as an alternative power source. As currently envisioned, the manufacture and distribution of the Kitty Hawk power system to alliance partners will occur from the Company’s manufacturing facilities, most likely located in Houston, Texas.

8

 

The anticipated opportunity in the recreational camping market for remote power devices comparable to the Kitty Hawk product was based upon analyzing the available products in this sector such as the Anton Bauer 2702 battery charger, SunWize AC 40/65 40 Watt remote power system, the Frezzi M1000P video power charger, the HPC 6624A 40 Watt power system as well as several other companies which provide products comparable to the Kitty Hawk power system. Trulite believes the Kitty Hawk product is well suited for recreational camping applications such as providing power for travel refrigerators/coolers, cell phone chargers, portable TVs, portable DVD players, and powering air and water purification units.

The Company plans to distribute its consumer Kitty Hawk products through three different channels: (1) direct to consumer sales (expected to be on a limited basis); (2) bundling; and (3) retail stores. The Company also plans on using the Internet, through sites such as eBay, Amazon, Overstock and Yahoo, to sell directly to consumers on a limited basis in order to test market its products, as well as establish consumer price points. The Company is also targeting original equipment manufacturers (“OEM”) in an attempt to bundle its products with those of the OEM. Advantages to partnering with an OEM include leveraging the OEM’s customer base and cross-selling Trulite’s products with existing OEM products. Lastly, the Company intends to attempt to market the Kitty Hawk to major high-end retail stores, such as REI, Northface, Patagonia and Brookstone, Orvis and Cabela’s in an attempt to attract the high end camping market.

(g) Business Strategy

The Company believes the HydroCell powered Kitty Hawk is substantially less expensive than comparable energy sources capable of producing 25 watts of power for several hours in this market segment. Based upon interviews with outside engineers from a major energy company, as well as analysis developed by Trulite’s own engineers, the power output of the Kitty Hawk system is capable of supporting typical user applications in the pipeline and well head markets. Trulite is currently testing a HydroCell capable of powering a Kitty Hawk system for seventy two continuous hours. Product enhancements are planned to develop a HydroCell capable of generating 10,000 watt hours of power which is equivalent to running a Kitty Hawk unit for seven hundred and twenty contiguous hours.

9

 

Trulite’s strategy is to leverage its unique hydrogen generation technology and its fuel stack technology to develop and sell integrated fuel cell products to address end-user applications in two identified markets: Industrial Remote Monitoring and Recreational Off-Site. Trulite’s business model is based upon the sale of its product, the Kitty Hawk, to specific target markets as an integrated solution. That is, since Trulite is able to bundle the fuel source with the fuel cell, Trulite is able to sell the integrated unit in line with the price point of competing fuel cell products. Trulite believes it is the only known source of the dry power fuel source and consequently, expects to receive follow up orders for HydroCell replacement cartridges. For example, for each Kitty Hawk unit sold, Trulite estimates a customer will purchase 25 HydroCell cartridges every year in the consumer market. Ongoing sales of replacement cartridges could represent a continuous revenue stream resulting in the generation of profits over the life of the Kitty Hawk unit.

Trulite seeks to make its hydrogen source technology the de-facto standard in the industry and, through the sale of its Kitty Hawk integrated power system product, capture a significant percentage of the industrial and consumer markets in which the Company intends to enter. The following are the main components of Trulite’s strategy.

·  
Narrow Market Focus

Trulite is focusing its initial efforts on two distinct markets:

Industrial Remote Monitoring: Specifically, the pipeline and well head market for remote sensing and monitoring of operating conditions in oil and gas fields. Characteristically, these fields tend to be in remote locations with harsh operating environments, making access difficult. The conventional power sources used to operate these facilities are solar panels and batteries. Solar panels turn sunlight into electricity that powers the batteries which, in turn, operate the sensing and monitoring devices. However, there are a number of challenges with solar energy: if the weather is cloudy for three days or more, electricity can’t be generated to power the batteries, making consistent and reliable monitoring of such facilities difficult, if not impossible. Solar panels are also subject to a variety of abuses, from vandalism to roaming animals knocking down the panels, rendering them inoperative. The repair and maintenance of these facilities is time consuming and costly, especially in remote environments. The impact of the lack of monitoring data may result in significant loss of revenue and potentially, may create an operational hazard. Trulite seeks to penetrate this market for the following reasons:

- The major oil producers have indicated an interest in replacing the common lead acid battery/solar panel combination due to high staffing requirements and operating costs required to maintain conventional batteries and a lack of reliability, especially in adverse weather conditions;

- As the price of crude oil remains high, formerly abandoned or plugged wells are coming on-line thanks to smaller oil producers, thereby substantially increasing the size of the total available market. It is even more important for these smaller producers to address operational issues such as increased reliability and reduced operating expenses;

10

 

- We feel this market segment represents one of our best opportunities to implement our existing products (the HydroCell and the Kitty Hawk power system) and generate near-term revenue; and

- The management team of Trulite has a deep knowledge of this segment, as well as numerous industry relationships at the most senior levels of management.

The Company believes the HydroCell powered Kitty Hawk is less expensive than comparable sources of energy on the market capable of producing 25 watts of power for several hours. Based upon interviews with engineers from a major energy company, as well as analysis developed by Trulite’s own engineers, the power output of the Kitty Hawk system is capable of supporting typical user applications in the pipeline and well head markets. Trulite is currently testing a HydroCell capable of powering a Kitty Hawk system for seventy two continuous hours. Product enhancements are planned to develop a HydroCell that is capable of generating 10,000 watt hours of power which is equivalent to running a Kitty Hawk unit for seven hundred and twenty contiguous hours.

Recreational Off-Site Usage: This market segment is focused on high end recreational camping, including a very specific niche target of environmentally conscious campers. Trulite seeks to enter this market for the following reasons:

- Belief that environmentalism continues its rise and this segment of the market is willing to pay a premium for environmentally friendly technology;

- We hope that entering this market will broaden the visibility of our products (specifically, the Kitty Hawk power system) to the consumer market, which is the first step to entering the retail market space;

- This market segment will provide Trulite with a good test for product performance (e.g., reliability, ease of use, new applications) as well as “new learnings”, which will enable the Company to enhance and adapt its product offerings based on consumer feedback; and

- The existing Trulite product has attributes ideally suited to this market segment: compact, portable, significantly lighter than batteries, environmentally friendly (water is the only by-product), high reliability, low maintenance, ease of use and long shelf life.

Trulite has received numerous comments and feedback from the initial set of Kitty Hawk users related to the performance, design and use of the product. The input from these initial customers was used to develop the product enhancement plan for subsequent versions of the Kitty Hawk power system.

·  
Utilize Strategic Relationships

Strategic relationships are critical to Trulite for research, product development and volume manufacturing. As used in this context, these relationships are transactions with companies to perform specific activities on Trulite’s behalf and for which Trulite does not have or may not want to develop the competencies to accomplish these activities. In return, Trulite will offer activities or provide competencies that are not available to the companies. It is expected that these relationships will be dissolvable at any time and may be formed for the objective of entering a market or developing a technology. Trulite expects to seek out relationships with companies for product design and product development. As the Company enters into volume production, Trulite intends to seek out strategic relationships for manufacturing, distribution and logistics.

11

 

Trulite currently does not intend to actively pursue markets other than as set forth herein. However, if opportunities arise through strategic relationships with companies specializing in non-competitive markets, we expect to carefully evaluate the opportunity before making a final determination.

·  
Continuous Technology and Product Innovation

Trulite is committed to continuous technology and product innovation as a means of achieving and maintaining sustainable competitive advantage. Trulite’s research and product development group in Utah is narrowly focused on new technology innovation. The group’s responsibility is to create a portfolio of emerging technologies specific to the hydrogen generation and fuel cell space. The senior management team reviews the portfolio, and those projects which have the highest likelihood of commercialization will be selected for the research agenda. Quarterly milestones, as well as performance and test metrics, are established to determine the viability of commercialization of the technology. If the test criteria are met, the technology is transferred to the Company’s advanced manufacturing team in Houston, Texas for product development and optimization.

Once the product is tested and optimized, it is turned over to the manufacturing team for volume production. The manufacturing team is responsible for continuous innovation of the product’s performance, as well as design for manufacture. Trulite’s goal is to enhance its existing product line every quarter and develop at least one new product every fiscal year.

·  
Strong Corporate Culture

Trulite believes a strong corporate culture is the foundation for a successful, enduring enterprise. There are two principles which have been imbedded in the culture of the Company since its inception:

- Integrity above reproach: All members of the Trulite team and its strategic relationships are committed to conducting business in an ethical manner with its customers, suppliers, partners, employees and the communities in which it operates. There is zero tolerance for behavior at any level that does not adhere to this principle.

- Frugality: Both Trulite and its strategic relationships are committed to the prudent allocation of resources. In every aspect of normal business activities, resource allocations are carefully weighed before making a decision. Alternatives are thoroughly discussed to determine if there is a better, more efficient option. Trulite intends to make investments in technology and people in order to retain and enhance its competitive position and return a fair profit to its stakeholders.

(h) Intellectual Property

We have filed two patent applications for the Hydrocell, and we make every effort to protect our knowledge of our processes and procedures.

(i) Competition

Trulite has two products: the HydroCell, a hydrogen generation and storage product, and the Kitty Hawk power system, a commercially packaged, integrated, hydrogen fuel cell power system. Trulite’s Kitty Hawk power system is an integrated system consisting of the HydroCell hydrogen generation and storage product; the fuel cell which converts hydrogen into electricity; and the control technology, which controls the flow of hydrogen to the fuel cell.

Trulite believes its HydroCell technology to be unique and offers significant advantages over hydrogen generation technology offered by its competitors. The HydroCell is a lightweight, compact fuel cell system that, to the Company’s knowledge, when combined with water recycling, produces more hydrogen for its size and weight than any other hydrogen source currently available on the market.

Our primary competition for hydrogen generation technology is Millennium Cell, Inc. (MCEL). MCEL, a development stage company, develops hydrogen batteries comprised of a fuel cell and hydrogen storage technology for use in portable electronic devices for the military, medical, industrial, and consumer markets. MCEL utilizes a “wet” sodium hydride technology for the generation of hydrogen. The fuel blends used in the hydrogen battery technology are comprised of a combination of water, sodium borohydride, and other chemicals. As compared to MCEL’s wet hydride technology, the HydroCell does not lose energy density during long periods of storage (up to three years). We believe there are technical limitations with respect to weight and shelf life that limit MCEL’s ability to achieve higher levels of energy density.

Although there are a number of competitors that provide fuel cell technologies, these competitors do not offer a single vendor, integrated solution consisting of the hydrogen source, the control technology and the fuel cell. We believe Trulite’s HydroCell and the Kitty Hawk integrated power system products have created a business model that gives Trulite a competitive advantage. We believe our business model affords us the opportunity to sell the Kitty Hawk integrated unit in line with the price point of competing fuel cell products.

(j) Employees

Trulite currently has 12 full time employees, 11 of whom are involved in research and development.  The 12th employee is involved with the financial affairs of Trulite.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OR PLAN OF OPERATION.

General

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our audited financial statements for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005 and the period from inception (July 15, 2004) to December 31, 2004, with their explanatory notes for the years included as part of the Form 10SB.

Overview

Trulite Technology, LC was created in May 2002 to develop a hydrogen fuel source for fuel cells. The intended applications were used by the military as a source of portable power and use by consumers as a source of recreational or back up power. This entity was funded by grants from two governmental agencies to conduct fuel cell research and development. In July 2004 Trulite Technology, LC merged with, and transferred all of its interests to the Company, then a newly-formed Delaware corporation. In the fourth quarter of 2005, the Company initiated production of demonstration products for sale to selected individuals. The demonstration units were manufactured at the Company’s research facilities in Utah.

The Company, from inception (July 15, 2004) through December 31, 2004, had $1,750 in sales and $16,667 in sales for the year ended December 31, 2005.  The revenue for both years was with a related party. We believe the main sources of initial revenue will be revenues from the oil and gas pipeline monitoring market and the high end recreational camping consumer market. Management anticipates revenues to increase quarter over quarter during 2006 as our manufacturing operation in Houston comes on line and the demand for our product increases. The Company, from inception (July 15, 2004) through December 31, 2004 had $1,750 in sales and $16,667 in sales for the year ended December 31, 2005. The revenue for both years was with a related party. We believe the main sources of initial revenue will be revenues from the oil and gas pipeline monitoring market and the high end recreational camping consumer market. Management anticipates an increase in revenues in 2006 as additional demonstration units are provided to selected users. Management estimates that it will begin to have commercially viable products resulting from the ongoing research and development and product development by the fourth quarter of 2007. Research and development expenditures will be made to further enhance the performance of the hydrogen fuel sources, to develop the electronics that control the process to generate electricity, to improve the performance of the fuel cells and other components, to increase the electrical output of the products, and to test the performance and reliability of the products. Management estimates it will spend approximately $1.8MM in research and development in 2006 and $1.0MM in 2007 prior to having the first products commercially available. The Company will have ongoing research and development and product development expenditures for the foreseeable future as products are developed for new applications and markets. The manufacturing operation in Houston is expected to be operational by the second quarter of 2007. The timing, amount and success of the research and development and manufacturing estimates are dependent on a number of factors that are difficult to project, including but not limited to the availability of qualified people, the success of the technologies under development, the cost to implement technologies, the cost of the product, the requirements of the marketplace, regulatory requirements, the availability of funds, and other factors.

Revenues and Gross Margins

Revenue for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2005 was $16,667, as compared to $1,750 for the period from July 15, 2004 (inception) through December 31, 2004. Gross margin for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2005 was $4,451 as compared to a gross margin of $1,100 for the period July 15, 2004 (inception) through December 31, 2004. During these periods, the Company was a research and development company. In the fourth quarter of 2005, the Company began low volume production of its demonstration products.
 
Total revenues were $8,333 for the three month period ending March 31, 2006 compared to no revenue for the corresponding period ended March 31, 2005. The increase was due to a research contract the Company obtained in 2005. The contract ended on January 31, 2006.
 
Operating Expenses

Expenses from operations were $830,658 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005.  This compares to operating expenses of $879,122 for the period July 15, 2004 (inception) through December 31, 2004. This is an overall decrease of 6%. Operating expenses consisted of research and development, depreciation, and general and administrative expenses. Research and development expenses decreased to $410,958 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005 compared to $713,109 for the five and one half month period from July 15, 2004 (inception) through December 3l, 2004. The overall decrease of 42% was mainly due to the research and development costs that occurred from the business combination on July 22, 2004, which resulted in a one time expense of $606,098. The decrease was offset by higher research and development costs and the longer period of twelve months for 2005 as compared to five and one half months for 2004. Depreciation increased 500% from 2005 as compared to 2004 and this is mainly attributed to the longer time period of operations in that 2005 was twelve months and 2004 was five and one half months and the purchase of additional equipment. For the twelve months ended December 31, 2005, general and administrative expenses increased to $412,877 from $164,873 as compared to the five and one half month period from July 15, 2004 (inception) through December 31, 2004. The overall increase of 154% is attributed to the longer time period and the increase cost of audits and legal fees of $122,434 for the purpose of going public.

                Operating expenses from operations was $382,067 for the three months ended March 31, 2006 as compared to $177,346 for the same period in 2005. This is an overall increase of 46%. Operating expenses consisted of research and development, depreciation and general and administrative expense. Research and development increased to $148,546 for the three months ended March 31, 2006 as compared to $74,915 for the three months ended March 31, 2005 which is a 50% increase. The increase was due to increased research and development activities. Depreciation increased from $2,720 for the three month period ending March 31, 2006, as compared to $891 for the same period in 2005. The increase was due to additional equipment purchased for research and development. For the three months ended March 31, 2006, general and administrative expenses increased to $230,801 from $101,540 for the three months ended March 31, 2005. The $129,261 or 127% increase was due to the purchase of directors and officers insurance, the hiring of a chief financial officer and the increased legal and accounting fees associated with a public offering.
 
Loss from Operations

Losses from operations were $825,952 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005 as compared to operating losses of $878,022 for the period July 15, 2004 (inception) through December 31, 2004. This is a 6% decrease for the twelve months ending December 31, 2005 as compared to the five and half months from July 15, 2004 (inception) through December 31, 2004. The decrease was due to decreases in operating expenses.
 
Loss from operations were $379,646 for the three months ended March 31, 2006 as compared to operating losses of $177,346 for the three months ended March 31, 2005. This increase of 114% was due mainly to the increases in operating expenses.
 
Other Income and Expense

Other income and expenses for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005 totaled $255, as compared to $0 for the period from July 15, 2004 (inception) through December 31, 2004. This increase was due to the Company’s investing part of its proceeds of approximately $950,000 raised from a private placement of its preferred stock in a savings account at a local bank.

Other income and expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2006 totaled $412, as compared to $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2005. This increase was due to the Company’s investing part of its June 2005 proceeds of a private placement of its preferred stock in a savings account at a local bank.

Net Loss

Net loss for the twelve months ended December 31, 2005 was $825,952, as compared to $878,022 for the period from July 15, 2004 (inception) through December 31, 2004. The loss decreased due to increased activity in research and development purchase of an insurance policy, hiring of a chief financial officer and the costs of a public offering.

Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2006 was $379,234, as compared to $177,346 for the three months ended March 31, 2005 due to increased activity in research and development purchase of an insurance policy, hiring of a chief financial officer and the costs of a public offering.

To date, we have financed operations through the private placement of equity securities. In June 2005, we raised $750,000 through a private placement of 934,725 shares of preferred stock. The Company has since had another private placement of equity securities in April 2006 in which we raised $1,000,000 through a private placement of 1,000,000 shares of common stock and an equal amount of warrants. We have not employed any significant leverage of debt. However, there can be no assurance we will not undertake debt obligations in the future in order to finance our operations.

Historical Sources of Cash

During the period from July 15, 2004 (inception) though December 31, 2004, the Company financed its operations principally through the sale of an aggregate of $300,000 worth of preferred stock, with $100,000 of such preferred stock sold in July, 2004 and $200,000 sold in November, 2004. The Company, for the year ended December 31, 2005, financed its operations through the sale of an aggregate of $950,000 of preferred stock, with $200,000 of such stock sold in February 2005 and the balance of $750,000 in June 2005 along with sales of three Kitty Hawk units. The Company had another private placement in April 2006 and raised $1,000,000 through the sale of 1,000,000 shares of common stock and 1,000,000 warrants.

Cash position and sources and uses of cash

Our cash position at December 31, 2005 was $235,982, as compared to $126,465 at December 31, 2004.

Our operating activities in 2005 used cash in the amount of $810,732 as compared to the period July 15, 2004 (inception) to December 31, 2004 of $168,741. Cash used in operating activities for the twelve month period ended December 31, 2005 and for this five and half month period in 2004 reflected a net loss of $825,952 and $878,022 respectively. The Company had $29,751 and $4,794 of cash out flows used in investing activities from the purchase of property and equipment for the year ended 2005 and 2004 respectively. The Company had cash flows from financing activities of $950,000 and $300,000 from issuances of preferred stock as set forth in the year 2005 and 2004 respectively.

18

 

Our cash position at March 31, 2006 was $36,013, as compared to $147,288 at March 31, 2005.

Our operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2006 used cash in the amount of $199,969 as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2005 of $172,806. Cash used in operating activities for the three month period ending March 31, 2006 and March 31, 2005 reflected a net loss of $379,234 and $177,346 respectively. The Company had $0 and $6,371 of cash out flows used in investing activities from the purchase of property and equipment for the three months ended March 31, 2006 and 2005 respectively. The Company had cash flows from financing activities of $0 and $200,000 from issuances of preferred stock as set forth herein the three months ended March 31, 2006 and 2005, respectively.

Capital Resources Going Forward

The Company had $126,465 at December 31, 2004, and $235,982 in cash and cash equivalents at December 31, 2005. Our intended plan of operations for the twelve month period beginning January 1, 2006 is to manufacture, sell and distribute our product, and to continue to develop our product. In the past, the Company primarily used funds derived from the private placement of its securities to fund its operations.

The Company had $36,013 at March 31, 2006, and $147,288 in cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2005. Our intended plan of operations for the twelve month period beginning January 1, 2006 is to manufacture, sell and distribute our product in 2006, and to continue to develop our product. In the past, the Company primarily used funds derived from the private placement of its securities to fund its operations.

Cash on hand as of March 31, 2006 and cash generated by operations in conjunction with our working capital will not be sufficient to continue our business for the next twelve months. We continually review our overall capital and funding needs, taking into account current business needs, as well as the Company’s future goals and requirements. Based on our business strategy, we believe we will need to increase our net capital and that the best way to do this is through the sale of additional securities.

Should our costs and expenses prove to be greater than we currently anticipate, or should we change our current business plan in a manner that will increase or accelerate our anticipated costs and expenses, the depletion of our working capital would be accelerated. To the extent it becomes necessary to raise additional cash in the future as our cash on hand and working capital resources are depleted, we intend to raise additional capital through the sale of additional equity securities, public or private sale of debt or equity securities, debt financing or short term loans, or a combination of these options. We may also seek to satisfy indebtedness through the private issuance of debt or other securities. We currently do not have a binding commitment for, or readily available sources of, additional financing. We cannot give any assurance that we will be able to secure the additional cash or working capital that we may require to continue our operations under such circumstances or that it will be on terms that would not hinder our ability to execute our business strategy.

19

 

Our anticipated costs are estimates based upon our current business plan. Our actual costs could vary materially from these estimates. Further, we could change our current business plans, which may also result in a change in our anticipated costs.

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

There are no guarantees, commitments, lease and debt agreements or other agreements that would trigger adverse changes in our credit rating, earnings, or cash flows, including requirements to perform under stand by agreements.

Critical Accounting Policies

The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United State of America.

On an ongoing basis, we evaluate our estimates and impairment of long lived assets. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying value of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates, including those for the above described items are reasonable.

Our accounting policies are more fully described in Note B - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies in our financial statements. As disclosed in Note B the preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions about future events that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Future events and their effects cannot be determined with absolute certainty. Therefore, the determination of estimates requires the exercise of judgment. Actual results will inevitably differ from those estimates, and such differences may be material to the financial statements.

At this stage of our development, we believe that of our significant accounting polices, the following may involve a higher degree of judgment, estimation or complexity than other accounting policies.
 
Impairment of Long Lived Assets

The Company reviews the recoverability of its long-lived assets, such as property and equipment, when events or changes in circumstances occur that indicate the carrying value of the asset or asset group may not be recoverable. The assessment of possible impairment is based on the Company’s ability to recover the carrying value of the asset or asset group from the expected future pre-tax cash flows (undiscounted) of the related operations. If these cash flows are less than the carrying value of such asset, an impairment loss is recognized for the difference between estimated fair value and carrying value.

20

 
 

Revenue Recognition

Although at this stage in our development we have had no significant revenues, we consider revenue recognition a critical accounting policy as it affects timing of earnings recognition. We recognize revenues on delivery and to date our operations have not involved any uncertainty of accounting treatment, subjective judgment or estimates over revenue recognition.

Being a new company we are unable to comment on the accuracy of any prior estimates or assumptions, however, we believe that our estimates are based on reasonable judgment.

RISK FACTORS

An investment in the Company is highly speculative in nature and involves an extremely high degree of risk. If any of the events, contingencies, circumstances or conditions described in this risk factors section actually occurs, our business, financial condition or results of operations could be seriously harmed.

Our business is difficult to evaluate because we are a development stage company.

  The Company is a development stage company that was formed in July 2004 to further the research and development of fuel source and fuel cell systems. To date, we have manufactured and marketed only twenty-five Kitty Hawk integrated power systems to selected customers. The Kitty Hawk products were delivered to a selected customer in February and March, 2006. Accordingly, there is only a limited basis upon which you can evaluate our business and prospects. An investor in our Company should consider the challenges, expenses and difficulties we will face as a development stage company seeking to develop and manufacture a new product in a relatively new market.

Our independent registered public accounting firm has expressed substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

We received an audit report from our independent registered accounting firm containing an explanatory paragraph expressing substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The Company has no significant operating history as of December 31, 2005, and since inception, the Company has not had significant revenues. Management raised additional equity financing to fund operations and to provide additional working capital. However, there is no assurance that such financing will be in amounts sufficient to meet the Company’s needs. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

We expect to have a need for additional capital as we continue to execute our business plan.

To achieve and maintain competitiveness and continue our growth, we expect to raise substantial funds. Our forecasts for the period for which our financial resources will be adequate to support our operations involves risks and uncertanties and actual results could fail as a result of a number of factors. We anticipate the need to raise additional capital to develop, promote and distribute our product. Such additional funding may be raised through public or private equity or debt financings. Additional funding may not be available under favorable terms, if at all. If adequate funds are not available, we may be required to curtail operations significantly or to obtain funds on terms not as favorable as we would hope. Trulite hopes to raise an additional $10 million in funding. It is anticipated that Trulite will need to raise an additional $5 million in funds by the end of the third quarter of 2006 and an additional $5 million in funds by the end of the second quarter of 2007. These funds will be required for recruiting and hiring additional technical staff, purchasing materials for the manufacture of Kitty Hawk 3X and Kitty Hawk 4 units, labor costs associated with manufacturing, and for product development and enhancements to the Kitty Hawk product line.

Technological changes could force us to drastically alter our business plan.

The quest for alternate energy sources is being undertaken by numerous governments, corporations, univeristies and other institutions and individuals throughout the world. Many of these participants have far greater experience and resources than Trulite and have been engaged in these activities for a longer period of time. In the event that commerical ready applications for alternative energy sources similar in nature to ours are introduced into the marketplace, we may be forced to alter our business plan. This can be expected to be costly and cause substantial delays in, or prevent us entirely from, realizing our objectives.

The Company must demonstrate value and reliability in order to gain consumer acceptance.

The cost of our fuel cell system is more than that of existing and competing energy providers. If we are unable to reduce our manufacturing and materials costs to produce products that are more cost effective and reliable than those of our competitors, consumers may be unlikely to purchase our products. The price of our fuel cell system depends, in large part, on material and manufacturing costs. We cannot guarantee we will be able to lower these costs without affecting the reliability and performance of our product.

The Company has limited experience manufacturing or selling fuel cells and fuel cell systems.
 
The Company has limited experience in producing, marketing or selling any products or services on a commercial basis. To date, we have focused primarily on research and development and have only limited experience manufacturing fuel cells or fuel source systems on a large volume, commercial basis. We believe in order to make our products profitable we would have to produce our products through a high volume automated process. We do not know whether or when we would be able to develop efficient, automated, low-cost manufacturing capabilities. Even if we are successful in developing such capabilities, we cannot ensure we will do so in time to meet our product commercialization schedule or to satisfy the requirements of our customers or shareholders.
 
22

 
We expect that some of our fuel source products will only be commercially viable as a component of other companies’ products, and these companies may choose not to include our fuel source system in their products.

Certain of our fuel source products must be integrated into products manufactured by OEM’s. We cannot guarantee that OEMs will manufacture these products. If they manufacture such products, no assurances can be given whether they will choose to incorporate our products or that such integration will be on financial and other business terms acceptable or profitable to us. In addition, any integration, design, marketing, manufacturing or other problems encountered by an OEM could adversely affect the market for our products, and we would have no ability to control the response to such problems.

We will need to rely on third parties for the proper execution of our business strategy.

Strategic relationships are critical to Trulite for research, product development and volume manufacturing. Trulite will seek out strategic relationships for product design and development. As the Company enters into volume production, Trulite will seek out strategic relationships for manufacturing, distribution and logistics.

Outsourcing is expected to happen in phases. First, Trulite will work with raw material and individual component manufacturing. The Company will control all the development, manufacturing and quality internally for the initial small volume ramp up to 1,000 HydroCell cartridges per month. During this time, the Company will seek to develop relationships with suppliers, which will enable the Company to move some subassemblies out to them and automate the core technology in-house. These relationships will continue to be built as market demand increases. The second phase of outsourcing will begin once volume demand approaches 1,500 cartridges per month. This volume is expected to trigger the beginning of a shift to a final assembly and test facility in Houston, Texas.

The Company does not believe it should have difficulty obtaining contractors for any of this work or to supplement or replace existing contractors if any of those relationships were to be insufficient or terminate, or if the sales volume were such that the Company needed additional contractors to support the increases in sales volume. No assurance can be given that a suitable contractor can be found or that once found, it will consistently meet the Company’s demands with regard to timing or quality. It is possible, however, that difficulties in supplementing or replacing current contractors could develop in the future because of factors which the Company cannot predict at this time, creating a potential material adverse effect on the Company. The availability of raw materials may have a material adverse effect on the Company’s results of operations. Because the Company uses only the highest quality components, any restriction on the availability or use of such raw materials, whether as the result of a reduction in supply, through natural disaster or environmental restrictions, could have a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition and results of operations of the Company.

Although the Company believes it has established a close relationship with its principal manufacturers and distributors, its future success may depend on its ability to maintain these relationships and establish new ones as the Company increases its sales volume and geographic customer base. If relationships with current manufacturers and distributors were to be interrupted for any reason, it may be difficult for the Company to locate other sources with similar or greater production and distribution capacity, which could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, financial condition and results of operations. Furthermore, the establishment of new manufacturing and distribution relationships involves numerous uncertainties including costs, terms of payment and timeliness of delivery, all of which such terms and conditions may be unsatisfactory to the Company and could result in additional costs to the Company.
 
23

 
We may not receive the assets and other technology as a result of the anticipated dissolution of Synexus.

As set forth elsewhere herein, Synexus is expected to dissolve in the near future and its equipment is expected to be transferred to CCP. CCP is then expected to transfer the equipment to Trulite. In the event CCP does not receive the equipment from Synexus or CCP does not transfer the equipment to us, as anticipated, our costs of operations and future business prospects will be materially and adversely affected as we will need to find another source for fuel cell stack technology or undertake to develop such technology on our own. In the event CCP or Trulite receives such equipment, CCP or Trulite may be subject to claims from creditors of Synexus or other third parties having relationships with Synexus, which could prevent or delay CCP’s transfer of the equipment to us or materially subject us to a risk of litigation or otherwise materially adversely affect our future business prospects.

We may be unable to raise additional capital to pursue our commercialization strategy.

Our product development and commercialization schedule may be delayed if we are unable to properly fund the Company and execute our business plan. We do not know whether we will be able to secure additional funding or funding on terms that are acceptable to us.

If additional capital is raised through the issuance of stock, stockholders’ ownership interest may be diluted.

One of the factors which generally affect the market price of publicly traded equity securities is the number of shares outstanding in relationship to assets, net worth, earnings or anticipated earnings. If a public market develops for the Company’s shares, or if the Company determines to register for sale to the public those shares of Common Stock granted in any business combination, a material amount of dilution can be expected to cause the market price of our Common Stock to decline. Furthermore, the public perception of future dilution can have the same effect even if the actual dilution does not occur.

In order for us to obtain additional capital, we may find it necessary to issue securities conveying rights senior to those of the holders of Common Stock. Those rights may include voting rights, liquidation preferences and conversion rights. To the extent we convey senior rights, the value of our Common Stock can be expected to decline.

24

 
If we incur indebtedness, we may become too highly leveraged and would be in risk of default.

There is no contractual or regulatory limit to the amount of debt we can take on, although we intend to follow a conservative debt policy. If our policy were to change or be eliminated due to unforeseen circumstances, we could become more highly leveraged, which could adversely affect our ability to meet our obligations and we would then be in risk of default, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations, business prospects and long term future viability.

A large scale consumer market for our products may never develop or take longer to develop than we anticipate.

A large scale consumer market for our products may never develop or may develop more slowly than we anticipate. Fuel cell technology is an emerging market, and we are unsure whether there will ever be popular demand for such products. The development of a large scale market may be affected by many factors, some of which are beyond our control, including:

-  
the competitive cost of fuel cell systems,
-  
the emergence of newer and more competitive technology,
-  
the future cost of raw materials,
-  
regulatory requirements,
-  
consumer perceptions regarding the safety of our product, and
-  
consumer reluctance to try new products and technologies.

If a large-scale consumer market fails to develop or develops more slowly than we anticipate, we may be unable to recover losses incurred in the development of our products.

Changes in environmental policies could hurt the market for our products and deter potential investors.

Although many governments have made the development of alternative energy sources, fuel cells in particular, a priority, we cannot assure you these governments will not change their environmental policies or that any change would not negatively affect our business. Research for alternative energy is influenced by government regulations and policies concerning energy research or conservation. Depending on the nature of the government regulations, it could be easier and more cost efficient, or more difficult and costly, to raise funds, conduct research, manufacture, market or sell our products in a given country. Government regulations may also impose more stringent requirements for the transport of the hydrogen fuel source, thereby increasing the costs of distribution.

25

 
Changes in governmental regulation could hurt the market for our products and negatively affect our ability to attract potential consumers.

The energy industry is influenced by state and federal regulations and policies. Any change in the present policies could affect additional investment in alternative forms of energy and decrease demand for our products.

Fuel cell technology may be subject to future governmental regulation which could affect the market for our product. As our products are introduced to the market, we may be subject to additional laws and regulations. We do not know the extent to which this will affect our ability to distribute our products. In addition, any future regulation may increase our production costs and the cost of our final product.

We currently face and continue to face significant competition.

Our products, the HydroCell hydrogen generation system and the Kitty Hawk integrated power system are expected to face significant competition. Many companies with substantially greater resources are developing similar hydride hydrogen generation technologies and are enhancing their fuel cell technologies. We cannot assure that customers will use Trulite products in lieu of competitor’s product offerings in the target markets we have identified. Further, the development of new technology may affect the popularity and profitability of our products or render our products obsolete.

We depend on our intellectual property, and our failure to protect that technology could adversely affect our future success.

We rely on our two patent applications to protect our intellectual property. Additionally, we make every effort to protect our knowledge of our processes and procedures. Failure to protect our existing intellectual property could cause the loss of our exclusivity or the right to use the technology we developed. If we do not adequately protect our intellectual property rights, we may have to pay others for the right to use their technology.

We could face litigation regarding the legitimacy of our patents, and we cannot ensure that we will be successful in such suits. These suits may result in the invalidation of our patent rights or the licensing of these rights to others.

We protect our proprietary intellectual property, including intellectual property that may not be patented, through the use of confidentiality agreements. We cannot assure you that these agreements will not be breached or that we will have an adequate remedy in the event that they are breached.

The Company may be unable to attract or retain key personnel, which would adversely affect our operations.

Our management team consists of several scientists, and we also employ engineers and researchers to help develop our products. Our future success depends on our ability to attract and retain a highly skilled workforce, consisting of scientists, engineers, researchers and marketing professionals. We cannot assure you we will be able to attract and retain such personnel. Our inability to do so could negatively impact our success.

On March 24, 2006, Dr. Kevin Shurtleff, the Company’s founder, resigned as a member of the Company’s Board of Directors and as an officer of the Company to pursue other interests and opportunities in areas not related to hydrogen fuel source and fuel cell technology. Dr. Shurtleff agreed to continue to work for the Company on a part-time basis for twenty hours per week to assist the Company in developing its control program technology and to transfer his knowledge of its hydrogen source technology.

We believe we have taken due care and diligence to capture all intellectual property developed by Dr. Shurtleff during his tenure with Trulite, Inc. and have taken other measures to ensure the Company’s progress in the area of hydrogen fuel source development will not be impeded if Dr. Shurtleff leaves its employ. A technical resource has been dedicated to working with Dr. Shurtleff for the past two years on the hydrogen source product development. This individual is fully competent to continue the product development if Dr. Shurtleff is no longer with the Company. The Company also plans to hire a part time chemist to assist in the capture of the hydrogen fuel source technology as well as product development.

We believe the measures taken to ensure the capture of all intellectual property and the competencies of the current staff will not impact the continuation of product development of the hydrogen fuel source or compromise the Company’s ability to continue product development in the hydrogen fuel source area in the future. However, there can be no assurances that we will not be impacted by Dr. Shurtleff’s resignation as director and officer or his possible future departure from the Company.

There is currently no trading market for our Common Stock.

Outstanding shares of Common Stock cannot be offered, sold, pledged or otherwise transferred unless subsequently registered pursuant to, or exempt from registration under, the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) and any other applicable federal or state securities laws or regulations. These restrictions will limit the ability of our stockholders to liquidate their investment.

Authorization of Preferred Stock

Our Certificate of Incorporation authorizes the issuance of up to 1,500,000 shares of preferred stock with designations, rights and preferences determined from time to time by our Board of Directors. Accordingly, our Board of Directors is empowered, without stockholder approval, to issue preferred stock with dividend, liquidation, conversion, voting or other rights which could adversely affect the voting power or other rights of the holders of the Common Stock. As of December 31, 2005, there were 1,454,725 outstanding shares of Preferred Stock. All of the preferred is Series A 8% Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock, par value $0.0001 per share. On May 2, 2006, all holders of these shares converted them to shares of Common Stock. If additional shares of Series A 8% Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock are issued, such shares could affect the rights of holders of our Common Stock.

ITEM 8. DESCRIPTION OF SECURITIES.

(a) Common and Preferred Stock.

The Company is authorized by its Certificate of Incorporation to issue an aggregate of 21,500,000 shares of capital stock, comprised of 20,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $.0001 per share (the "Common Stock") and 1,500,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $.0001 per share (the “Preferred Stock”). As of July 27, 2006, 11,785,491 shares of Common Stock and no shares of Preferred Stock were issued and outstanding.

Common Stock

All shares of Common Stock are of the same class and have equal rights and attributes. The holders of Common Stock are entitled to one vote per share on all matters submitted to a vote of stockholders of the Company. All stockholders are entitled to share equally in dividends, if any, as may be declared from time to time by the Board of Directors out of funds legally available. In the event of liquidation, the holders of Common Stock are entitled to share ratably in all assets remaining after payment of all liabilities. The stockholders do not have cumulative or preemptive rights.

On April 10, 2005, the Board of Directors authorized a five for one split on all Common Stock issued prior to that date. The Preferred Stock outstanding as of April 10, 2005 would also split five for one if any preferred holder prior to that time converted the preferred to Common Stock at some later date.

40

 
Preferred Stock

Trulite is authorized by its Certificate of Incorporation to designate and issue up to 1,500,000 shares of Preferred Stock. The Company has designated Series A 8% Cumulative Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series A Preferred Stock”). The Series A Preferred Stock ranks, as to the payment of dividends and the distribution of assets upon liquidation or winding up of the Company, (i) senior to or on parity with all other classes and series of the Preferred Stock and (ii) senior to the Common Stock. Holders of Series A Preferred Stock are entitled to receive preferential cumulative dividends at an annual rate of 8% of the original issue price, payable at the option of the Company in cash or in shares of Series A Preferred Stock. Any dividends declared by the Board are payable quarterly. Upon any liquidation, winding up or dissolution of the Company, holders of the Series A Preferred Stock receive $1.00 per share (the original issue price) plus any dividends, whether or not declared by the Board, accrued and unpaid.

Each share of the Series A Preferred Stock may be converted, in whole or part, at the option of the holder, at any time, into a number of duly authorized, validly issued, fully paid and non assessable shares of Common Stock, as is determined by dividing the original issue price of the Series A Preferred Stock by the conversion price, which is subject to adjustment, but which was $1.00 per share upon issuance. Each share of the Series A Preferred Stock automatically converts into shares of Common Stock on or after (i) the closing of a underwritten, public sale of Common Stock, at a price per share which results in the Company having a market value of at least $50,000,000 or (ii) the date specified by written consent by the holders of a majority of the outstanding shares of the Series A Preferred Stock.

Each holder of shares of the Series A Preferred Stock is entitled to the number of votes equal to the number of whole shares of Common Stock into which the shares of Series A Preferred Stock held by such holder are convertible.

The conversion price of the Series A Preferred Stock is subject to adjustment: (i) upon any stock split, dividend or other distribution (whether of Common Stock or other form of distribution), (ii) if the Common Stock issuable upon conversion of the Series A Preferred Stock shall be changed to the same or different number of shares of any class or classes of stock, whether by reclassification, exchange, combination, substitution or otherwise, (iii) upon any capital reorganization of the Company or a merger or consolidation of the Company with or into another corporation or other business entity, or the sale of all or substantially all of the Company’s properties or assets, (iv) if the Company issues any securities convertible into or exchangeable for, directly or indirectly, Common Stock (“Convertible Securities”), other than the Series A Preferred Stock, or any rights or warrants or options to purchase any such Common Stock or Convertible Securities, shall be issued or sold (collectively, the “Common Stock Equivalents”) and the price per share for which additional shares of Common Stock may be issuable thereafter pursuant to such Common Stock Equivalent shall be less than the applicable conversion price of the Series A Preferred Stock then in effect or if, after any such issuance of Common Stock Equivalents, the price per share for which additional shares of Common Stock may be issuable thereafter is amended or adjusted, and such price as so amended shall be less than the applicable conversion price of the Series A Preferred Stock, (v) upon any merger or consolidation, dependent on the price paid by or to the Company in such transaction or (vi) if the Company, at any time prior to the latest to occur of the (A) first anniversary of the issuance date of the Series A Preferred Stock or (B) date of the consummation of a financing transaction of the Company resulting in at least $500,000 of gross proceeds to the Company, issues any options to purchase Common Stock to any employees of the Company.

41

 

The Company cannot amend, alter or repeal the preferences, rights, powers or other terms of the Series A Preferred Stock to adversely affect the Series A Preferred Stock without the written consent or affirmative vote of at least 66.6% of the then-outstanding shares of the Series A Preferred Stock.

As of December 31, 2005, there were three record holders of 1,454,725 outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock. On May 2, 2006, these three holders converted their shares of Series A Preferred Stock into 6,562,630 shares of Common Stock. As of the date hereof, there are no shares of Series A Preferred Stock issued and outstanding.

The description of certain matters relating to the securities of the Company is a summary and is qualified in its entirety by the provisions of the Company's Certificate of Incorporation and bylaws, copies of which have been filed as exhibits to this Form 10-SB/A.

Incentive stock options expire no later than seven years after the date of grant.
 
ITEM 2. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.

There are not presently any material pending legal proceedings to which the Registrant is a party or as to which any of its property is subject, and no such proceedings are known to the Registrant to be threatened or contemplated against it.

ITEM 3. CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE.

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

ITEM 4. RECENT SALES OF UNREGISTERED SECURITIES.

In June 2005, pursuant to Rule 504 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act, Trulite sold 1,134,725 shares of its Series A Preferred Stock to one investor, CCP, for an average cash consideration of $0.84 per share, for an aggregate investment of $950,000.

On April 13, 2006, pursuant to Rule 504 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act, Trulite issued 1,000,000 shares of Common Stock and 1,000,000 warrants to purchase Common Stock, at an exercise price of $1.50 per share, to 12 accredited investors for an aggregate purchase price of $1,000,000.

44

 

In addition, in April 2006, the Company issued 300,000 shares of Common Stock and warrants to purchase 400,000 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $3.00 per share to Jelco and Boru, pursuant to each of their consulting agreements.

All purchasers of the Company’s securities represented in writing that they were accredited investors and acquired the securities for their own accounts. A legend was placed on the stock certificates stating that the securities have not been registered under the Securities Act and cannot be sold or otherwise transferred without an effective registration or an exemption therefrom.

ITEM 5. INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS.

Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law provides that a corporation may indemnify directors and officers as well as other employees and individuals against expenses including attorneys' fees, judgments, fines and amounts paid in settlement in connection with various actions, suits or proceedings, whether civil, criminal, administrative or investigative other than an action by or in the right of the corporation, a derivative action, if they acted in good faith and in a manner they reasonably believed to be in or not opposed to the best interests of the corporation, and, with respect to any criminal action or proceeding, if they had no reasonable cause to believe their conduct was unlawful. A similar standard is applicable in the case of derivative actions, except that indemnification only extends to expenses including attorneys' fees incurred in connection with the defense or settlement of such actions and the statute requires court approval before there can be any indemnification where the person seeking indemnification has been found liable to the corporation. The statute provides that it is not exclusive of other indemnification that may be granted by a corporation's certificate of incorporation, bylaws, agreement, a vote of stockholders or disinterested directors or otherwise.

The Company’s Certificate of Incorporation provides that it will indemnify and hold harmless, to the fullest extent permitted by Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law, as amended from time to time, each person that such section grants us the power to indemnify.
 
The Delaware General Corporation Law permits a corporation to provide in its certificate of incorporation that a director of the corporation shall not be personally liable to the corporation or its stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director, except for liability for:
 
·   any breach of the director's duty of loyalty to the corporation or its stockholders;
·  acts or omissions not in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law;
·   payments of unlawful dividends or unlawful stock repurchases or redemptions; or
·  any transaction from which the director derived an improper personal benefit.
 
45

     
   The Company’s Certificate of Incorporation provides that, to the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, none of our directors will be personally liable to us or our stockholders for monetary damages for breach of fiduciary duty as a director. Any repeal or modification of this provision will be prospective only and will not adversely affect any limitation, right or protection of a director of our company existing at the time of such repeal or modification.

TRULITE, INC. (A DEVELOPMENT STAGE COMPANY)
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
FOR THE QUARTERLY PERIODS ENDED MARCH 31, 2006 AND 2005

NOTE A - NATURE OF OPERATIONS

Trulite, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated on July 15, 2004 in the State of Delaware. The Company is a development stage entity and is primarily engaged in the development of compact, lightweight hydrogen generators for fuel cell systems.

The Company from inception (July 15, 2004) through March 31, 2006 did not have significant revenues. The Company has no significant operating history as of March 31, 2006. The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. From inception (July 14, 2004) through March 31, 2006, management has raised additional equity financing to fund operations and to provide additional working capital. However, there is no assurance that such financing will be in amounts sufficient to meet the Company’s needs.

The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result from the possible inability of the Company to continue as a going concern.

Effective February 22, 2006, the Company’s Form 10-SB/A (General Form for Registration of Securities of Small Business Issuers) was deemed effective with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission.


NOTE B - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Cash and Cash Equivalents: Cash and cash equivalents include short-term investments with original maturities of three months or less.

Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Doubtful Accounts: Accounts receivable are reported at outstanding principal less allowance for doubtful accounts. Earnings are charged with a provision for doubtful accounts based on a current review of the collectibility of the accounts. Accounts deemed uncollectible are applied against the allowance for doubtful accounts.

As of and for the three months ended March 31, 2006, all of the Company’s sales were from an affiliated entity.

Concentrations of Credit Risk: The Company maintains cash balances at a financial institution which at times exceeds federally insured amounts. The Company has not experienced any material losses in such accounts.

Revenue Recognition: Revenue from sales is recognized on delivery.

Property and Equipment: Property and equipment is carried at cost. The Company depreciates property and equipment using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the related assets ranging from 3 to 7 years. Maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred and expenditures for major improvements are capitalized. Gains and losses from retirement or replacement of property and equipment are included in operations.

Depreciation expense was $2,720 (unaudited) and $891 for the three months ended March 31, 2006 and 2005, respectively.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
FOR THE QUARTERLY PERIODS ENDED MARCH 31, 2006 AND 2005

NOTE B - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets: The Company reviews the recoverability of its long-lived assets, such as property and equipment, when events or changes in circumstances occur that indicate the carrying value of the asset or asset group may not be recoverable. The assessment of possible impairment is based on the Companys ability to recover the carrying value of the asset or asset group from the expected future pre-tax cash flows (undiscounted) of the related operations. If these cash flows are less than the carrying value of such asset, an impairment loss is recognized for the difference between estimated fair value and carrying value.

Income Taxes: The liability method is used in accounting for income taxes. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on differences between financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse. The realizability of deferred tax assets are evaluated annually and a valuation allowance is provided if it is more likely than not that the deferred tax assets will not give rise to future benefits in the Company’s tax returns.

Use of Estimates: The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Stock-Based Compensation Plan: The Company has granted options to purchase common stock to employees, consultants and outside directors under the Trulite, Inc. Stock Option Plan (the “Plan”). Prior to January 1, 2006, the Company accounted for grants of options using the intrinsic value method under the recognition and measurement principles of Accounting Principles Board Opinion (APB) No. 25, Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees and related interpretations, and applied SFAS No. 123, Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation, as amended by SFAS No. 148, Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation - Transition and Disclosure, for disclosure purposes only. Under APB No. 25, stock-based compensation cost related to stock options was not recognized in net income since the options granted under those plans had exercise prices greater than or equal to the market value of the underlying stock on the date of grant.

Effective January 1, 2006, the Company adopted SFAS No. 123 (revised 2004), Share-Based Payment, which revises SFAS No. 123 and supersedes APB No. 25. SFAS No. 123R requires that all share-based payments to employees be recognized in the financial statements based on their fair values at the date of grant. The calculated fair value is recognized as expense over the requisite service period, net of estimated forfeitures, using the straight-line method under SFAS No. 123R. The statement was adopted using the modified prospective method of application which requires compensation expense to be recognized in the financial statements for all unvested stock options beginning in the quarter of adoption. No adjustments to prior periods have been made as a result of adopting SFAS No. 123R. Under this transition method, compensation expense for share-based awards granted prior to January 1, 2006, but not yet vested as of January 1, 2006, and not previously amortized through the pro forma disclosures required by SFAS No. 123, will be recognized in the Company’s financial statements over their remaining service period. The cost was based on the grant-date fair value estimated in accordance with the original provisions of SFAS No. 123. As required by SFAS No. 123R, compensation expense recognized in future periods for share-based compensation granted prior to adoption of the standard will be adjusted for the effects of estimated forfeitures.

NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
FOR THE QUARTERLY PERIODS ENDED MARCH 31, 2006 AND 2005

NOTE B - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (Continued)

During the first quarter of 2006, the Company issued options to purchase 5,000 shares of common stock under the Plan (see Note H). These options have an exercise price equal to the fair value estimate of $0.88 on the date of grant, varying vesting over four years, and a 7 year contractual life. These options are being accounted for in accordance with the guidance in SFAS No. 123R.

The Company estimates the fair value of stock options under SFAS No. 123R at the date of grant using a Black-Scholes valuation model, which is consistent with the valuation technique previously utilized to value options for the footnote disclosures required under SFAS No. 123. The following table provides the weighted average assumptions used in the Black-Scholes option valuation model to value options granted in the first quarter of 2006. The risk-free rate is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant. The expected term (estimated period of time outstanding) of options granted in 2006 is based on the “simplified” method of estimating expected term for “plain vanilla” options allowed by SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 107, and varies based on the vesting period and contractual term of the option. Expected volatility for options granted in 2006 is based on an evaluation of similar Companys’ trading activity. The Company evaluated three comparable publicly traded companies to determine expected volatility, all of which are active in the development of hydrogen fuel cells or hydrogen fuel sources. The Company has not issued dividends on its common stock.

As no stock options were issued during the three months ended March 31, 2005, the proforma information required under FAS 123 is not considered applicable.

New Accounting Pronouncements: In February 2006, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 155, Accounting for Certain Hybrid Financial Instruments. SFAS No. 155 provides entities with relief from having to separately determine the fair value of an embedded derivative that would other wise be required to be bifurcated from its host contract in accordance with SFAS No. 133. SFAS No. 155 allows an entity to make an irrevocable election to measure such a hybrid financial instrument at fair value in its entirety, with changes in fair value recognized in earnings. SFAS No. 155 is effective for all financial instruments acquired, issued or subject to a remeasurement event occurring after the beginning of an entity’s first fiscal year that begins after September 15, 2006. The Company believes that the adoption of SFAS No. 155 will not have a material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

In March 2006, the FASB issued SFAS No. 156 Accounting for Serving of Financial Assets an Amendment to FASB Statement No. 140. Once effective, SFAS No. 156 will require entities to recognize a servicing asset or liability each time they undertake an obligation to service a financial asset by entering into a serving contract in certain situations. This statement also requires all separately recognized servicing assets and servicing liabilities to be initially measured at fair value and permits a choice of either the amortization or fair value measurement method for subsequent measurements. The effective date of this statement is for annual periods beginning after September 15, 2006, with earlier adoption permitted as the beginning of an entity’s fiscal year provided the entity has not issued any financial statements for that year. The Company does not believe that this pronouncement will have a material impact on its financial statements.

FOR THE QUARTERLY PERIODS ENDED MARCH 31, 2006 AND 2005

NOTE C - INCOME TAXES

Since inception, the Company has incurred net operating losses and, accordingly, no provision for current income taxes has been recorded in these financial statements. In addition, no benefit for income taxes has been recorded in respect of the net deferred tax assets, which principally comprises the benefit of the net operating loss carryforward of approximately $708,000 and $579,000 as of March 31, 2006 and December 31, 2005, respectively, as management believes it is more likely than not that the deferred tax assets will not be fully realizable. Accordingly, the Company has provided for a full valuation allowance against its net deferred tax assets at March 31, 2006 and December 31, 2005. During the quarter ended March 31, 2006, the valuation allowance for net deferred tax assets increased by approximately $129,000. For the year ended December 31, 2005, the valuation allowance for net deferred tax assets increased by approximately $280,000.

As of March 31, 2006, the Company has a net operating loss carryforward of approximately $2,083,000 which will expire in the years 2024 and 2026 if not utilized earlier.

NOTE D - RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT COSTS

Expenditures for research activities relating to product development and improvement are charged to expense as incurred. Such expenditures amounted to $148,546 and $74,915 for the quarter ended March 31, 2006 and March 31, 2005, respectively.

NOTE E - SERIES A PREFERRED STOCK

The 8% Cumulative Convertible Series A Preferred Stock (“Series A Preferred Stock”) has a liquidation value of $1.00 per share plus dividends whether or not earned or declared from the issuance date thereof at the annual rate of eight percent (8%) (the “Preferred Dividends”) of $1.00 per share (the “Original Issue Price”), payable at the option of the Company in cash or in shares of Series A Preferred Stock. In addition, the Preferred Stock has preferential treatment in liquidation to all Common Stock and any other stock of the Company ranking junior to the Series A Preferred Stock. Accretion of cumulative dividends outstanding on these shares was $29,095 and $9,030 during the quarter ended March 31, 2006 and March 31, 2005, respectively.

Each share of Series A Preferred Stock is convertible at any time into common shares of the Company by dividing the original issue price by a conversion price as defined. 520,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock are convertible into common shares on a five for one basis due to the subsequent common stock split (see Note G).

The Series A Preferred Stock is redeemable at the option of the majority holders in cash at $1.00 per share plus all accrued and unpaid Preferred Dividends on the fifth anniversary of the date of initial issuance or other events relating to change in 25% or more of the outstanding voting stock of the Company or a merger or consolidation as defined.

Each holder of Series A Preferred Stock is entitled to the number of votes equal to the number of whole shares of Common Stock into which the shares of Series A Preferred Stock is convertible.

NOTE F - RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

During the quarter ended March 31, 2006, all sales were to an entity affiliated to Contango Capital Partners, LP (a preferred stockholder of the Company). Accounts receivable from this affiliated entity amounted to $8,333 as of March 31, 2006.

During the quarter ended March 31, 2006, the Company received advances of $53,811 form an affiliated entity.

As consideration for certain administrative services performed, valued at $65,020, the Company issued 65,020 shares of its common stock to Contango Capital Partners, LP during quarter ended March 31, 2005 (323,350 shares of common stock, post stock split) (see Note G). The Company based the value of these common shares upon the hours spent providing such services at hourly rates commonly paid for these types of services.

NOTE G - COMMON STOCK SPLIT

In April 2005, the Company’s Board of Directors authorized a five-for-one split of the Company’s common stock. In conjunction with the stock split, the Company amended its certificate of incorporation to increase its authorized common stock to 20,000,000 shares and retained the par value of $0.0001 per share. Accordingly, all references to the number of common shares authorized and common shares issued and outstanding in the accompanying financial statements have been adjusted to reflect the effects of the common stock split on a retroactive basis.

NOTE H - COMMON STOCK OPTIONS

In March 2005, the Company established the Trulite, Inc. Stock Option Plan (the “Plan”). The Plan is administered by the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Company or a committee of the Board and provides for the grant of 1,721,665 shares of the Company’s common stock to eligible employees, directors, consultants and advisors as non-qualified stock options or incentive stock options. The Plan was amended in March 2006 and increased the number of shares allowed for grant as options by 1,389,140 shares. The revised number of shares as of March 31, 2006 in the Plan is 3,110,805.

Option exercise price, number of options, duration and time of exercise are as determined by the Board except that incentive stock options are to be granted within ten years from date of adoption of the Plan and incentive stock options must be exercised no later than seven years from date of grant.
