Note 2 – Organization and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies


Organization and Line of Business


This Organization and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies of the Company is presented to assist in understanding the Company’s consolidated financial statements.  The Company’s accounting policies conform to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”).


Profire Energy, Inc. was established on October 9, 2008 upon the closing of transactions contemplated by an Acquisition Agreement among The Flooring Zone, Inc., Profire Combustion, Inc. (the “Subsidiary”) and the shareholders of the Subsidiary. Following the closing of the transactions, The Flooring Zone, Inc. was renamed Profire Energy, Inc. (the “Parent”).


Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Acquisition Agreement, 35,000,000 shares of restricted common stock of the Parent were issued to the three shareholders of the Subsidiary in exchange for all of the issued and outstanding shares of the Subsidiary. As a result of the transaction, the Subsidiary became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Parent and the shareholders of the Subsidiary became the controlling shareholders of the Parent.


The Parent was incorporated on May 5, 2003 in the State of Nevada. The Subsidiary was incorporated on March 6, 2002 in the province of Alberta, Canada.  


The Company provides burner and chemical management products and services for the oil and gas industry primarily in the Canadian and US markets.


Significant Accounting Policies


There have been no changes to the significant accounting policies of the Company from the information provided in Note 1 of the Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements in the Company’s most recent 10-K, except as discussed below.




Certain balances in previously issued consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to be consistent with the current period presentation. The reclassification had no impact on financial position, net income, or stockholders’ equity.


Stock Based Compensation


In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-09, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share Based Payment Accounting. Several aspects of the accounting for share based payment awards are simplified with this update, including accounting for and classification of various taxes, classification of awards as equity or liabilities, classification of various amounts on the statement of cash flows, and accounting for forfeitures. This standard became effective for the Company on January 1, 2017.


As part of this standard, companies can choose whether to recognize forfeitures as they occur or continue to estimate forfeitures with periodic true-ups. The Company has elected to recognize forfeitures as they occur. This election was made on a modified retrospective basis with the cumulative effect recognized in beginning retained earnings of the current period; therefore, amounts in prior periods have not been restated. The total adjustment was $171,315 as a reduction of APIC and increase in retained earnings.


Recent Accounting Pronouncements


The Company has evaluated all recent accounting pronouncements and determined that the adoption of pronouncements applicable to the Company has not had or is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
