2. Business Description and Going Concern

BioZone Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (formerly, International Surf Resorts, Inc.; the “Company”, “we”, “our”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on December 4, 2006. On March 1, 2011, we changed our name from International Surf Resorts, Inc. to BioZone Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

On June 30, 2011, we acquired: (i) 100% of the outstanding common stock of BioZone Laboratories, Inc. (“BioZone Labs”) in exchange for 19,266,055 shares of our common stock; (ii) 100% of the outstanding membership interests of Equalan, LLC (“Equalan”) and Equachem, LLC (“Equachem”) in exchange for 1,027,523 and 385,321 shares of our common stock, respectively; and (iii) 45% of the outstanding membership interests of BetaZone Laboratories, LLC (“BetaZone”) in exchange for 321,101 shares of our common stock, for a total of 21 million shares. The acquired entities shared substantially common ownership prior to the foregoing acquisition. (We refer to BioZone Labs, Equalan, Equachem and BetaZone, collectively as the “BioZone Lab Group”).

BioZone Labs was incorporated under the laws of the State of California in 1991. Equalan was formed as a limited liability company under the laws of the State of California on January 2, 2007. Equachem was formed as a limited liability company under the laws of the State of California on March 12, 2007 under the name Chemdyn, LLC and changed its name to Equachem, LLC on July 25, 2007. BetaZone was formed as a Florida limited liability company on November 7, 2006.

The BioZone Lab Group has operated since inception as a developer, manufacturer, and marketer of over-the-counter drugs and preparations, cosmetics, and nutritional supplements on behalf of health care product marketing companies and national retailers. We have been developing our proprietary drug delivery technology (the “BioZone Technology”) as an enhancement for approved, generic prescription drugs that are limited due to poor stability or bioavailability or variable absorption.
The Company accounted for the acquisition of the BioZone Lab Group as a “reverse acquisition”. Accordingly, the Company is considered the legal acquirer and the BioZone Lab Group is considered the accounting acquirer. The current and future financial statements will be those of the historical financial statements of the BioZone Lab Group, and BioZone Pharmaceuticals, Inc. from the date of acquisition.  As a result of the June 30, 2011 transaction referred to above, we recorded the fair value of the acquisition at $2,000,000 as further described below. In addition, on September 21, 2011, the Company issued 13,914 shares of common stock to certain shareholders in consideration for the delay in filing the Company’s Registration Statement on Form S-1, as required in the Asset Purchase Agreement. These shares were valued at $0.50 per share and the resulting amount was charged to interest expense at the time of issuance.

The Company engaged a leading financial advisory firm specializing in corporate finance and business valuation to determine the fair value of certain identifiable intangible assets acquired which were identified based on an analysis of the transaction, a review of available supporting documents, and discussions with management. The analysis focused on determining which components met the requirements for recognition as an intangible asset separate from goodwill under ASC 805, and had characteristics that allowed its value to be reasonably estimated. This analysis ultimately identified the acquired brands and customer relationships as the qualifying intangible assets subject to amortization, which were valued at $110,000 and $172,800, respectively. Intangible assets recognized apart from goodwill are classified as finite lived (subject to amortization) on the basis of the intangible asset’s expected useful life, which was determined to be 5 years.

Accordingly, the purchase price has been allocated to the fair values of tangible and intangible assets acquired and liabilities assumed at June 30, 2011 as follows:

Financial assets
Property and equipment
Financial liabilities
Total identifiable assets
