7 7 NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS December 31, NATURE OF BUSINESS AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES The primary business activity of the Company is the development of a business-to-business internet marketplace for engineering products and services targeted at the engineering community. The continuance of the Company s operations is dependent upon the commercialization and development of the ENGINEERING.com website. Principles of consolidation These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of ENGINEERING.com and its subsidiaries (collectively the Company ). All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated. Use of estimates The preparation of financial statements in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Revenue recognition The Company s revenue consists of fees for listings on the Company s website, software and software support sales, hardware sales and service-related activities. Listing fee revenues are recognized over the term of the agreement, which is typically 12 months. Hardware sales are recognized when title passes, which coincides with shipment to and acceptance by the customer. Revenue from the licensing of software products is recognized when the Company has delivered the software and satisfied all contractual obligations. Revenue from software support contracts, which includes product updates, telephone hotline support, local on-site engineering support and revision loading are recognized on a straight-line basis over the life of the contract. These contracts are normally one year in duration. Revenue from other service-related activities, including training, custom programming, networking, integration, engineering and consulting services are recognized as the services are performed. Transactions with limited margins where the product or service has been sourced from a related party where the Company was determined to have acted as an agent in the transactions are presented on a net basis. Capital assets Capital assets are recorded at cost and depreciated on a declining balance method at the following rates or on a straight-line basis over the following term: Computer hardware and software 30% Office furniture & equipment 20% Website development 3 years Leasehold improvements are amortized on a straight-line basis over the term of the lease. Intangible assets Intangible assets consist of the domain name, ENGINEERING.com, goodwill, and reseller agreements. Goodwill represents the excess of purchase consideration over the fair value of net
8 8 identifiable assets acquired in a business combination. The Company s policy with respect to the potential impairment of goodwill is determined by comparison of the carrying value of unamortized goodwill with the estimated future cash flows of the related entity. Goodwill is only written down when it has been determined that there has been a permanent impairment in value of the unamortized goodwill. Reseller agreements are amortized on a straight-line basis over the term of the agreement (see Note 2 Changes in Accounting Policy). Research and website development costs Research costs are expensed as incurred. Development costs are expensed as incurred unless a development project meets specified criteria under Canadian generally accepted accounting principles for capitalization and amortization including, but not limited to, technical feasibility and reasonable assurance of recoverability. Foreign currency translation Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are recorded in Canadian dollars at the exchange rate in effect at the balance sheet date. Exchange gains and losses arising on translation are included in earnings. Revenues and expenses are recorded using exchange rates that approximate those in effect when the transactions occur. Income taxes The Company follows the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes. The Company provides a valuation allowance to reduce future tax assets when it appears more likely than not that the asset will not be realized. Stock-based compensation plans The Company has an Employee Stock Option Plan (the Plan ), which is described in Note 7. Under the Plan, options are to be granted at market value as determined by the board of directors, by reference to a quoted trading price, if available, and accordingly, no compensation expense is recognized when stock options are issued to employees. Any consideration paid by employees on exercise of stock options or purchase of Common Shares is credited to share capital. If Common Shares or stock options are repurchased from employees, the excess of the consideration paid over the carrying amount of the Common Shares or stock options is charged to retained earnings. Financial instruments The Company s financial instruments consist of cash and short-term investments, accounts receivable, GST receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and amounts due to related parties. The carrying value of cash and short-term investments, accounts receivable, GST receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and amount due to related parties approximates their fair values due to the immediate or short-term maturity of these financial instruments. 2. CHANGES IN ACCOUNTING POLICY Goodwill and Intangible Assets Commencing January 1, 2002, the new recommendations of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants for intangible assets and goodwill apply to the Company (CICA Handbook Section 3062). The Company s domain name is an intangible asset with an indefinite life. This asset was tested for impairment as at January 1, 2002, and again at December 31, 2002 and found to have no impairment at either time. In adopting the new accounting policy for 2002 the Company has ceased amortization of this asset. Similarly, goodwill was also tested for impairment as at January 1, 2002 and the Company determined there was no goodwill transitional impairment amount. The Company conducted another impairment test as at December 31, 2002 and determined that the asset had been
9 9 impaired due to the option right granted in respect of the asset underlying the goodwill (see note 5 Intangible Assets) Revenue Recognition The Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants issued EIC 123 in December 2001, delineating the standard for when companies should report revenue Gross as a principal versus Net as an agent. This new accounting standard applies to years beginning on or after December 6, The Company has applied this change in accounting policy for the year ended December 31, 2002 and has also applied this change retroactively to the 2001 financial statements. Previous to the adoption of this policy, all sales by the Company were recorded as revenue. Gross billings includes all transactions at their gross amount, while net revenues includes only the margin on those transactions where the Company was determined to have acted as an agent. Net revenue also includes the entire proceeds for transactions where the Company was determined to have acted as a principle. The result is that the amounts formerly reported as Revenues are now identified as Gross Billings. The impact of this change in accounting policy was a reduction in reported net revenue for the year ended December of $8,333,882 ( $2,964,854) and a reduction in prepaid expenses and deferred revenue as at December 31, 2002 of $316,309 ( $392,000). There was no change in the reported gross profit or net income of the Company associated with the adoption of this accounting policy. Stock Based Compensation Effective January 1, 2002, the Company adopted the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants revised Handbook Section 3870, Stock Based Compensation and Other Stock Based Payments. As permitted by the new recommendations, no compensation cost is recorded upon issuance of stock options under the Company s Stock Option Plan. Under the new recommendations, the Company is required to disclose the pro-forma net earnings (loss) and earnings (loss) per share using the fair market value method of accounting for stock based compensations. (See Note 7 Stock Options) 3.

(collectively The Brand Factory) in July The initial purchase price less the net book value of assets on hand at the time of the purchase and subsequent additional consideration resulted in goodwill of $1,899,056 at the end of Accumulated amortization on this goodwill was $548,400 as at December 31, Additional purchase consideration during the current year of $84,195 was recorded as an increase in goodwill. The purchase agreement and subsequent amendments thereto provide for the expiration of certain non-competition and non-solicitation obligations of the vendors of The Brand Factory (the Vendors ) and title to the business name The Brand Factory to revert to the Vendors at the end of In addition, the Vendors have the right to acquire the business of The Brand Factory from the Company at a price approximating the net amount of current assets less current liabilities at the end of Accordingly, the Company has recognized an impairment loss associated with the goodwill related to this acquisition of $1,434,852 in 2002 (see Note 2 Changes in Accounting Policies).

( Yolles ), a related party, whereby Yolles would provide certain consulting services for a total purchase price of 50,000 Common Shares. These amounts are included in website development costs (Note 4). ii) On March 23, 2001, the Company entered into a Reseller Agreement with CADsoft Corporation ( CADsoft ), a related party, whereby the Company would be an authorized exclusive reseller of certain CADsoft-related licensed products and services for a total of 150,000 Common Shares. These amounts are included in intangible assets (Note 12). iii) On March 30, 2001, the Company issued 1,400,000 Common Shares in connection with its acquisition of IQtraders.com Inc. (Note 13). On September 30, 2002, 700,000 Common Shares were cancelled in connection with an amendment to the share purchase agreement for the acquisition of IQTraders.com Inc. iv) In 2000 the Company acquired the rights to the domain name ENGINEERING.com. The terms of sale allowed for the purchase price to be satisfied by the issuance of Common Shares, contingent on the share price appreciating in value to satisfy the purchase price. On July 12, 2001, the Company issued 14,140 Common Shares to Creative Engineering in consideration for the purchase price. However, the share price did not attain the price required to satisfy the purchase price.

Additionally, the Company was reimbursed for approximately $142,000 of costs associated with certain personnel who provided services to Rand Worldwide. These reimbursements have been recorded as a reduction in reported salaries and benefits expense. iii) The terms and conditions of the Reseller Agreement with CADsoft, a director of which is also a director of the Company, indicate that the Company is to earn a 20% margin on these sales.
