Recent Developments
 
June 2007 Amendment to Articles of Incorporation
 
On June 21, 2007, we filed a certificate of amendment to our Articles of Incorporation. The amendment changed the name of the Company from "Joystar, Inc." to "Travelstar, Inc." The amendment also increased our authorized capital from 50,000,000 shares of common stock and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock to 200,000,000 shares of common stock and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock. The amendment was approved by our Board of Directors and by written consent of the holders of a majority of our common stock.
 
November 2006 Private Placement
 
On November 16, 2006, we sold in a private placement of up to $2,500,000, a total of 3,212,000 shares (the "Shares") of our common stock, no par value per share, at a purchase price of $0.625 per share to institutional and accredited investors, for a total purchase price of $2,007,500. In addition to the Shares, on the closing date, we issued and delivered Series A and B Warrants to the investors (collectively the "Warrants"). One Series A Warrant and one Series B Warrant was issued for each four Shares issued, for a total of 803,000 Series A Warrants and 803,000 Series B Warrants. Series A Warrants are exercisable into common stock at $0.85 per share and Series B Warrants are exercisable at $1.00 per share. The Series A and B Warrants are exercisable until five (5) years after the closing date.
 
We paid 10% commissions in cash in the amount of $200,750 and issued 321,200 common stock purchase warrants to First Montauk Securities Corp. of Red Bank, New Jersey, member NASD, who acted as a selling agent for the financing. We received total net proceeds of $1,766,750, after deducting the legal fees and commissions. The net proceeds will be used by us for working capital purposes.
 
Shares and Warrants Issued.
 
On August 25, 2006, we sold in a private transaction to accredited investors, a total of 550,000 shares of our common stock, no par value per share, at a purchase price of $0.50 per share. In addition to the shares, we delivered one warrant for every two shares purchased. On September 22, 2006, we sold in a private transaction to an accredited investor, a total of 357,143 shares of our common stock, no par value per share, at a purchase price of $0.70 per share. In addition to the shares, we delivered one warrant for every two shares purchased.
 
Shares in the amount of 1,642,885 were issued on June 30, 2005 to two officers and directors upon conversion of their respective loans to us totaling $575,000 including one warrant for every two shares converted. The warrants are exercisable into common stock at $0.35 per share.
 
On December 2, 2005 we issued 1,000,000 shares for services and on September 27, 2006, 25,000 shares were issued for services performed on behalf of our company.
 
The shares and warrants were offered and sold by us to investors whom we had reasonable grounds to believe were "accredited investors" within the meaning of Rule 501 of Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The investors were provided access to business and financial about us and had such knowledge and experience in business and financial matters that it was able to evaluate the risks and merits of an investment in our company. Each certificate evidencing securities issued to the investors included a legend to the effect that the securities were not registered under the Securities Act and could not be resold absent registration or the availability of an applicable exemption from registration. No general solicitation or advertising was used in connection with the transaction.

RISK FACTORS
 
An investment in our shares involves a high degree of risk. Before making an investment decision, you should carefully consider all of the risks described in this prospectus. If any of the risks discussed in this prospectus actually occur, our business, financial condition and results of operations could be materially and adversely affected. If this were to happen, the price of our shares could decline significantly and you may lose all or a part of your investment. The risk factors described below are not the only ones that may affect us. Our forward-looking statements in this prospectus are subject to the following risks and uncertainties. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated by our forward-looking statements as a result of the risk factors below. See "Forward-Looking Statements."
 
Risks Related to Our Financial Results
 
We have incurred significant operating losses since our inception and we cannot assure you that we will ever achieve profitability.
 
Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2007 were $2,250,296 compared to $2,553,579 for the three months ended June 30, 2006. Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2007 were $4,723,029 compared to $4,736,251 for the six months ended June 30, 2006. In addition, revenues for the year ended December 31, 2006 increased to $6,932,277 from $1,942,526 for the year ended December 31, 2005. We had a cash balance of $2,389,257 at June 30, 2007 as compared to $2,246,929 at December 31, 2006. For the three months ended June 30, 2007, we had an operating loss of $579,337, as compared to operating income of $71,081 for the three months ended June 30, 2006. For the six months ended June 30, 2007, we had an operating loss of $1,017,685, as compared to an operating  loss of $411,998 for the six months ended June 30, 2006.  In addition, for the year ended December 31, 2006 and the year ended December 31, 2005, we had a total operating loss of $2,852,678 and $3,875,838, respectively.  We cannot assure you that we can achieve or sustain profitability in the future. Our operations are subject to the risks and competition inherent in the establishment of a business enterprise. There can be no assurance that future operations will be profitable. Revenues and profits, if any, will depend upon various factors, including whether our product will achieve market acceptance. We may not achieve our business objectives and the failure to achieve such goals would have an adverse impact on us. These matters raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.
 
Our future capital needs are uncertain. We will need to raise additional funds in the future and these funds may not be available on acceptable terms or at all.
 
We believe that our current cash and cash equivalents are sufficient to meet projected operating requirements through December 31, 2007. Therefore, we may seek additional funds from public and private stock or debt offerings, borrowings or other sources prior to such time. Our capital requirements will depend on many factors, including:
 
o The revenues generated by sales of our travel products;
 
o The costs required to develop new travel products;
 
o The costs of obtaining and defending patents, trademarks and copyrights of our travel products;
 
o The costs associated with expanding our sales and marketing efforts;
 
o The expenses we incur in selling our products;
 
o The costs associated with any expansion of operations;
 
o The costs associated with capital expenditures; and
 
o The number and timing of any business acquisitions or other strategic transactions.
 
As a result of these factors, we will need to raise additional funds, and these funds may not be available on favorable terms, or at all. Furthermore, if we issue equity or debt securities to raise additional funds, our existing stockholders may experience dilution, and the new equity or debt securities may have rights, preferences and privileges senior to those of our existing stockholders. If we cannot raise funds on acceptable terms, we may not be able to develop or enhance our travel products, execute our business plan, take advantage of future opportunities, or respond to competitive pressures or unanticipated customer requirements.
 
Our auditor's opinion expresses substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a "going concern"
 
The independent auditors report on our April 18, 2007 financial statements state that our historical losses raise substantial doubts about our ability to continue as a going concern. We cannot assure you that we will be able to maintain any growth in our revenues or achieve profitability. Accordingly, a purchase of our common stock should be considered a high-risk investment. Despite obtaining funding in the amount of approximately $2.0 million dollars as of November 16, 2006, our ability to continue as a going concern is subject to our ability to generate a profit or obtain further necessary funding from outside sources, including obtaining additional funding from the sale of our securities, generating revenues/sales or obtaining credit lines or loans from various financial institutions where possible. If we are unable to develop our business,
 
3

 
we may have to discontinue operations or cease to exist, which would be detrimental to the value of our common stock. We can make no assurances that our business operations will develop and provide us with significant cash to continue operations.
 
Risks Related to Our Business
 
Our inability to be successful in responding to the following conditions and failure to accomplish the objectives presented by them may have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.
 
As a result of the numerous factors that could potential impact our operating results and the rapidly changing nature of the markets in which we compete, our quarterly and annual revenues and operating results are likely to fluctuate from period to period. These fluctuations may be caused by a number of factors, many of which are beyond our control. These factors include the following, as well as others discussed elsewhere in this prospectus:
 
o The risks, uncertainties, expenses and difficulties frequently encountered by companies in their early stages of development; o Our inability to obtain new customers at reasonable cost, retain existing customers or encourage repeat purchases. o Decreases in the number of visitors to our websites or our inability to convert visitors to our websites into customers; o Our inability to adequately maintain, upgrade and develop our websites, the systems that we use to process customers' orders and payments or our computer network.; o Our inability to retain existing airlines, hotels, rental car companies and other suppliers of travel services ("travel suppliers") or to obtain new travel suppliers; o Our inability to obtain travel products on satisfactory terms from our travel suppliers; o The ability of our competitors to offer new or enhanced websites, services or products; o Fluctuating gross margins due to a changing mix of revenues; o The termination of existing relationships with key service providers or failure to develop new ones; o The amount and timing of operating costs relating to expansion of our operations; o Economic conditions specific to the Internet, online commerce and the travel industry; o Attract additional travel suppliers and consumers to our service; o Maintain and enhance our brand;
 
o Expand our service offerings; o Operate, expand and develop our operations and systems efficiently; o Maintain adequate control of our expense; o Respond to technological changes; and o Respond to competitive market conditions
 
Our inability to be successful in responding to factors set forth above or accomplishing the objectives presented by them, may have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.
 
We depend on our relationships with travel suppliers; our business could be harmed by adverse changes in these relationships.
 
Our business model relies on relationships with travel suppliers, and it would be negatively affected by adverse changes in these relationships. We depend on travel suppliers to enable us to offer our customers comprehensive access to travel services and products. Consistent with industry practices, we currently have few agreements with our travel suppliers obligating them to sell services or products through our websites. It is possible that travel suppliers may choose not to make their inventory of services and products available through online distribution. Travel suppliers could elect to sell exclusively through other sales and distribution channels or to restrict our access to their inventory, either of which could significantly decrease the amount or breadth of our inventory of available travel offerings. We will also depend on travel suppliers for advertising revenues.
 
Our business model relies on our relationships with licensees and computer reservations systems.
 
In addition to our relationships with travel suppliers, our business model relies on our relationships with licensees and computer reservations systems. Our license revenues are generated through new and existing travel agents. Adverse changes in any of these relationships could have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.
 
A decline in commission rates or the elimination of commissions could hurt our business.
 
A substantial majority of our online revenues depends on the commissions paid by travel suppliers for bookings made through our online travel service. Generally, we do not have written commission agreements with our suppliers. As is standard practice in the travel industry, we rely on informal arrangements for the payment of commissions. Travel suppliers are not obligated to pay any specified commission rate for bookings made through our websites. We cannot assure you that airlines, hotel chains or other travel suppliers will not reduce current industry commission rates or eliminate commissions entirely, either of which could have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.
 
4

 
Consumers, travel suppliers and advertisers may not accept our website as a valuable commercial tool which would harm our business.
 
For us to achieve significant growth, travel agents, consumers, travel suppliers, and advertisers must accept our website as a valuable commercial tool. Consumers who have historically purchased travel products using traditional commercial channels, such as local travel agents and calling airlines directly must instead purchase these products through our website. Similarly, travel suppliers and advertisers will also need to accept or expand their use of our website. Travel suppliers will need to view our websites as an efficient and profitable channel of distribution for their travel products. Advertisers will need to view our website as effective ways to reach their potential customers.
 
In order to achieve the acceptance of consumers, travel suppliers and advertisers contemplated by our business plan, we will need to continue to make substantial investments in our technology and brand. We cannot at this time determine how much of an investment it will take nor, be assured that we will be able to secure the funds required. We do not have specific plans or budget at this time. Our failure to make progress in these areas may harm our business.
 
Intense competition could reduce our market share and harm our financial performance.
 
The markets for the products and services offered by us are intensely competitive. We compete with other online travel reservation services, traditional travel agencies, and travel suppliers offering their services. We also compete with many of the same parties and others in the licensing of technology to home based travel agents and corporate travel agencies.
 
We compete with a variety of companies with respect to each product or service we offer. These competitors include: Internet travel agencies such as Expedia, Orbitz, and Travelocity; local, regional, and national and international traditional travel agencies; consolidators and wholesalers of airline tickets and other travel products, including online consolidators such as Cheaptickets.com, Hotwire and Priceline.com.; individual airlines, hotels, rental car companies, cruise operators and other travel service providers, some of which are suppliers to our websites; operators of travel industry reservation databases.
 
In addition to the traditional travel agency channel, many travel suppliers, including many suppliers with which we will do business, also offer their travel services as well as third- party travel services directly through their own websites. Suppliers also sell their own services directly to consumers, predominantly by telephone. As the market for online travel services grows, we believe that the companies involved in the travel services industry, including travel suppliers, traditional travel agencies and travel industry information providers, will increase their efforts to develop services that compete with our services by selling inventory from a wide variety of suppliers. We cannot assure you that our online operations will compete successfully with any current or future competitors.
 
Our limited operating history and the greater size and resources of competitors may have a significant impact on our operations.
 
Many of our competitors have longer operating histories, larger customer bases, greater brand recognition and significantly greater financial, marketing and other resources than we have and may enter into strategic or commercial relationships with larger, more established and better-financed companies. Some of our competitors may be able to secure services and products from travel suppliers on more favorable terms, devote greater resources to marketing and promotional campaigns and commit more resources to website and systems development than we are able to devote. In addition, the introduction of new technologies and the expansion of existing technologies may increase competitive pressures. Increased competition may result in reduced operating margins, as well as loss of market share and brand recognition. We cannot assure you that we will be able to compete successfully against current and future competitors. Competitive pressures faced by us could have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.
 
Establishing, maintaining and enhancing our brand will be a critical aspect of our efforts to attract and expand our online traffic.
 
We believe that establishing, maintaining and enhancing our brand will be a critical aspect of our efforts to attract and expand our online traffic. The number of Internet sites that offer competing services, many of which already have well-established brands in online services or the travel industry generally, increases the importance of establishing and maintaining brand recognition. Promotion of the Travelstar brand will depend largely on our success in providing a high-quality online experience supported by a high level of customer service. In addition, to attract and retain online users and to respond to competitive pressures, we intend to increase our spending substantially on marketing and advertising with the intention of expanding our brand recognition. However, we cannot assure you that these expenditures will be effective to promote our brand or that our marketing efforts generally will achieve our goals.
 
If we are unable to provide high-quality online services or customer support, if we fail to promote and maintain our brand or if we incur excessive expenses in these efforts, our business, operating results and financial condition would be materially adversely affected. If we are unable to introduce and sell new products and services, our business may be harmed.
 
We need to broaden the range of travel products and services and increase the availability of products and services that we offer in order to enhance our service. We will incur substantial expenses and use significant resources trying to expand the range of products and services that we offer. However, we may not be able to attract sufficient travel suppliers and other participants to provide desired products and services to our consumers. In addition, consumers may find
 
5

 
that delivery through our service is less attractive than other alternatives. If we launch new products and services and they are not favorably received by consumers, our reputation and the value of the Travelstar brand could be damaged.
 
Our relationships with consumers and travel suppliers are mutually dependent since consumers will not use a service that does not offer a broad range of travel services. Similarly, travel suppliers will not use a service unless consumers actively make travel purchases through it. We cannot predict whether we will be successful in expanding the range of products and services that we offer. If we are unable to expand successfully, our business, operating results and financial condition may be materially adversely affected. We may be unable to plan and manage our operations and growth effectively.
 
Our growth may increase our expense levels and the difficulties we face in managing our operations.
 
Growth and our anticipated future operations will continue to place, a significant strain on our management, systems and resources. We will continue to increase the scope of our operations and the size of our workforce. In addition to needing to train and manage our workforce, we will need to continue to improve and develop our financial and managerial controls and our reporting systems and procedures. A failure to plan, implement and integrate these systems successfully could adversely affect our business.
 
Declines or disruptions in the travel industry, such as those caused by terrorism or general economic downturns, could reduce our revenues.
 
We rely on the health and growth of the travel industry. Travel is highly sensitive to travel safety concerns, and thus declines may occur after acts of terrorism that affect the safety of travelers. The terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in northern Virginia using hijacked commercial airliners resulted in bookings industry wide. The long-term effects of these events could include, among other things, a protracted decrease in demand for air travel due to fears regarding additional acts of terrorism, military responses to acts of terrorism and increased costs and reduced operations by airlines due, in part, to new security directives adopted by the Federal Aviation Administration. These effects, depending on their scope and duration which we cannot predict at this time together with any future terrorist attacks, could significantly impact our long-term results of operations or financial condition.
 
The travel industry is sensitive to business and personal discretionary spending levels and tends to decline during general economic downturns, which could also reduce our revenues.
 
The travel industry is sensitive to business and personal discretionary spending levels and tends to decline during general economic downturns, which could also reduce our revenues. Other adverse trends or events that tend to reduce travel are likely to hurt our business. These may include:
 
o Price escalation in the airline industry or other travel-related industries.
 
o Increased occurrence of travel-related accidents.
 
o Airline or other travel-related strikes.
 
o Political instability.
 
o Regional hostilities and terrorism.
 
o Bad weather
 
Interruptions in service from third parties could hurt our business.
 
We rely on third-party computer systems and third-party service providers, including the computerized central reservation systems of the airline, hotel and car rental industries to make airline ticket, hotel room and car rental reservations and credit card verifications and confirmations. Any interruption in these third-party services or deterioration in their performance could hurt our business. If our arrangement with any of these third parties is terminated, we may not find an alternate source of systems support on a timely basis or on commercially reasonable terms.
 
Our success depends on maintaining the integrity of our systems and infrastructure.
 
As our operations grow in both size and scope, domestically and later internationally, we will need to improve and upgrade our systems and infrastructure to offer an increasing number of travel agents, customers and travel suppliers enhanced products, services, features and functionality. The expansion of our systems and infrastructure will require us to commit substantial financial, operational and technical resources before the volume of business increases, with no assurance that the volume of business will increase. Travel agents, consumers and suppliers will not tolerate a service hampered by slow delivery times, unreliable service levels or insufficient capacity, any of which could have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.
 
6

 
In this regard, our operations face the risk of systems failures. Our systems and operations are vulnerable to damage or interruption from fire, flood, power loss, telecommunications failure, break-ins, earthquake and similar events. Business interruption insurance may not adequately compensate us for losses that may occur. The occurrence of a natural disaster or unanticipated problems at our leased facilities could cause interruptions or delays in our business, loss of data or render us unable to process reservations. In addition, the failure of our computer and communications systems to provide the data communications capacity required by us, as a result of human error, natural disaster or other operational disruption could result in interruption of our service. The occurrence of any or all of these events could adversely affect our reputation, brand and business.
 
Rapid technological changes may render our technology obsolete or decrease the competitiveness of our services.
 
To remain competitive, we must continue to enhance and improve the functionality and features of our website. The Internet and the online commerce industry are rapidly changing. If competitors introduce new services embodying new technologies, or if new industry standards and practices emerge, our existing website and proprietary technology and systems may become obsolete. Our future success will depend on our ability to do the following:
 
o Enhance our existing services;
 
o Develop and license new services and technologies that address the increasingly sophisticated and varied needs of our prospective customers and suppliers; and
 
o Respond to technological advances and emerging industry standards and practices on a cost-effective and timely basis.
 
Developing our website and other proprietary technology entails significant technical and business risks. We may use new technologies ineffectively or we may fail to adapt our websites, transaction-processing systems and network infrastructure to customer requirements or emerging industry standards. If we face material delays in introducing new services, products and enhancements, our customers and suppliers may forego the use of our services and use those of our competitors.
 
The success of our business will depend on continued growth of online commerce and the Internet.
 
Our future revenues and profits depend upon the widespread acceptance and use of the Internet and online services as a medium for commerce. Rapid growth in the use of the Internet and online services is a recent phenomenon. This growth may not continue. A sufficiently broad base of consumers may not accept, or continue to use, the Internet as a medium of commerce. Demand for and market acceptance of recently introduced products and services over the Internet are subject to a high level of uncertainty.
 
The Internet has experienced, and is expected to continue to experience, significant growth in the number of users and amount of traffic. Our success will depend upon the development and maintenance of the Internet's infrastructure to cope with this increased traffic. This will require a reliable network backbone with the necessary speed, data capacity and security and the timely development of complementary products for providing reliable Internet access and services. Major online service providers and the Internet itself have experienced outages and other delays as a result of software and hardware failures and could face such outages and delays in the future. Outages and delays are likely to affect the level of Internet usage and the processing of transactions on our websites. In addition, the Internet could lose its viability because of delays in the development or adoption of new standards to handle increased levels of activity or of increased government regulation. The adoption of new standards or government regulation may require us to incur substantial compliance costs.
 
Our business is exposed to risks associated with online commerce security and credit card fraud.
 
Consumer concerns over the security of transactions conducted on the Internet or the privacy of users may inhibit the growth of the Internet and online commerce. To transmit confidential information such as customer credit card numbers securely, we rely on encryption and authentication technology. Unanticipated events or developments could result in a compromise or breach of the systems we use to protect customer transaction data. Furthermore, our servers may also be vulnerable to viruses transmitted via the Internet. While we proactively check for intrusions into our infrastructure, a new and undetected virus could cause a service disruption.
 
Under current credit card practices, we may be held liable for fraudulent credit card transactions and other payment disputes with customers. A failure to control fraudulent credit card transactions adequately would adversely affect our business.
 
Our planned international operations will involve risks.
 
At some time in the future, we plan to operate in the United Kingdom, Germany, Canada, France, the Netherlands and Italy and may expand our operations to other countries. In order to achieve widespread acceptance in each country we enter, we believe that we must tailor our services to the unique customs and cultures of that country. Learning the customs and cultures of various countries, particularly with respect to travel patterns and practices, is a difficult task and our failure to do so could slow our growth in those countries. We will be subject to the normal risks of doing business internationally, as well as risks specific to Internet-based companies in foreign markets. These risks include:
 
7

 
o Delays in the development of the Internet as a broadcast, advertising and commerce medium in international markets;
 
o Difficulties in managing operations due to distance, language and cultural differences, including issues associated with establishing management systems infrastructures in individual foreign markets;
 
o Unexpected changes in regulatory requirements;
 
o Export and import restrictions;
 
o Tariffs and trade barriers and limitations on fund transfers;
 
o Difficulties in staffing and managing foreign operations;
 
o Potential adverse tax consequences; and
 
o Exchange rate fluctuations.
 
We may be found to have infringed on intellectual property rights of others which could expose us to substantial damages and restrict our operations.
 
We could be subject to claims that we have infringed the patents, copyrights or other intellectual property rights of others. In addition, we may be required to indemnify travel suppliers for claims made against them. Any claims against us could require us to spend significant time and money in litigation, delay the release of new products or services, pay damages, develop new intellectual property or acquire licenses to intellectual property that is the subject of the infringement claims. These licenses, if required, may not be available on acceptable terms or at all. As a result, intellectual property claims against us could have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.
 
Because our market is seasonal, our quarterly results will fluctuate.
 
Our limited operating history and anticipated rapid growth will make it difficult for us to assess the impact of seasonal factors on our business. Nevertheless, we expect our business to be subject to seasonal fluctuations, reflecting seasonal trends for the products and services offered by our websites. For example, demand for travel bookings may increase in anticipation of summer vacations and holiday periods, but online travel bookings may decline with reduced Internet usage during the summer months. These factors could cause our revenues to fluctuate from quarter to quarter. Our results may also be affected by seasonal fluctuations in the inventory made available to our service by travel suppliers. Airlines, for example, typically enjoy high demand for tickets through traditional distribution channels for travel during holiday periods. As a result, during these periods, airlines may either have fewer inventories to offer through our service or available tickets may be less competitively priced. These same factors are expected to affect rental cars, hotels and other travel products and services.
 
We are dependent on our management and our ability to retain qualified individuals; the loss of any officer could hinder the implementation of our business plan.
 
We are heavily dependent upon management, the loss of any of whom could have a material adverse affect on our ability to implement our business plan. While we have entered into an employment agreement with William M. Alverson, our Chief Executive Officer and President, this employment agreement may be terminated for a variety of reasons. If, for some reason, the services of management, or of any member of management, were no longer available to us, our operations and proposed businesses and endeavors may be materially adversely affected. Mr. Alverson, has been primarily responsible for setting up our business plan and our infrastructure. As we continue with our intended operations, other officers may be instrumental in setting up our financial and operational controls and procedures, and we may need to hire additional personnel to perform such functions. Any failure of management to implement and manage our business strategy and growth may have a material adverse affect on us. There can be no assurance that our operating control systems will be adequate to support its future operations and anticipated growth. Failure to manage our growth properly could have a material adverse affect on our business, financial condition or result of operations.
 
Furthermore, our success depends in large part on the continuing efforts of a few individuals and our ability to continue to attract, retain and motivate highly skilled employees, qualified travel agents and personnel. Because consumers and suppliers rely on travel agents as intermediaries to provide information on their travel choices and help them purchase their trips, we are highly dependent on attracting and retaining professional home-based travel agents. We currently have over 5,000 independent travel agents; we aim to enroll 10,000 members by 2010.
 
Because two of our directors, Mr. William M. Alverson and Ms. Katherine T. West, control approximately 32.28% of our outstanding common stock, investors may find that corporate decisions influenced by Mr. Alverson are inconsistent with the best interests of other stockholders.
 
8

 
Mr. William M. Alverson, our chief executive officer and director, and Ms. Katherine T. West control approximately 32.28% of our issued and outstanding shares of common stock. The interests of Mr. Alverson and Ms. West may not be, at all times, the same as those of other shareholders. Since Mr. Alverson and Ms. West are not simply passive investors but are also our executive officer and two directors, their interests as an executive and a director, at times, may be adverse to those of passive investors. Where those conflicts exist, our shareholders will be dependent upon Mr. Alverson and Ms. West exercising, in a manner fair to all of our shareholders, their fiduciary duties as an officer and/or as a member of our board of directors. Also, Mr. Alverson and Ms. West will have the ability to significantly influence the outcome of most corporate actions requiring shareholder approval, including any potential merger of Travelstar with or into another company, the sale of all or substantially all of our assets and amendments to our articles of incorporation. This concentration of ownership with Mr. Alverson and Ms. West may also have the effect of delaying, deferring or preventing a change in control of Travelstar which may be disadvantageous to minority shareholders.
 
Our website will rely on intellectual property, and we cannot be sure that this intellectual property will be protected from copy or use by others, including potential competitors.
 
We regard some of our content and technology as proprietary and will try to protect our proprietary technology by relying on trademarks, copyrights, trade secret laws and confidentiality agreements with consultants. In connection with our license agreements with third parties, we seek to control access to and distribution of our technology, documentation and other proprietary information. Even with all of these precautions, it is possible for someone else to copy or otherwise obtain and use our proprietary technology without our authorization or to develop similar technology independently. Effective trademark, copyright and trade secret protection may not be available in every country in which our services are made available through the Internet, and policing unauthorized use of our proprietary information is difficult and expensive. We cannot be sure that the steps we will take will prevent misappropriation of our proprietary information. This misappropriation could have a material adverse effect on our business. In the future, we may need to go to court to enforce our intellectual property rights, to protect our trade secrets or to determine the validity and scope of the proprietary rights of others. This litigation might result in substantial costs and diversion of resources and management attention.
 
We plan to license from third parties, certain technologies incorporated into our website. As we introduce new services that incorporate new technologies, we may be required to license additional technology from third parties. We cannot be sure that these third-party technology licenses will continue to be available on commercially reasonable terms, if at all.
 
We are potentially subject to a concentration of credit risk from our accounts receivable. Also, we record a reserve against the use of fraudulent credit cards on our Web sites and customer service related chargebacks.
 
We are subject to other risks and uncertainties common to growing technology-based companies, including rapid technological change, growth and commercial acceptance of the Internet, dependence on third-party technology, challenges to patents, new service introductions and other activities of competitors, dependence on key personnel, international expansion, and limited operating history. In addition, we are subject to uncertainty caused by economic, political and transportation climates and events, such as the September 11, 2001 terrorist activities, which may impact future demand for the products and services that we sell.
 
Regulatory and legal uncertainties could harm our business.
 
The laws and regulations applicable to the travel industry affect us and our travel suppliers. We are subject to laws and regulations relating to the sale of travel services, including those prohibiting unfair and deceptive practices and those requiring us to register as a seller of travel, comply with disclosure requirements and participate in state restitution funds. In addition, many of our travel suppliers and computer reservation systems providers are heavily regulated by the United States and other governments. Our services are indirectly affected by regulatory and legal uncertainties affecting the businesses of our travel suppliers and computer reservation systems providers.
 
We are also subject to laws and regulations applicable to businesses generally and online commerce. Currently, few laws and regulations directly apply to the Internet and commercial online services. Moreover, there is currently great uncertainty about whether or how existing laws governing issues such as property ownership, sales and other taxes, libel and personal privacy apply to the Internet and commercial online services. It is possible that laws and regulations may be adopted to address these and other issues. Further, the growth and development of the market for online commerce may prompt calls for more stringent consumer protection laws. New laws or different applications of existing laws would likely impose additional burdens on companies conducting business online and may decrease the growth of the Internet or commercial online services. In turn, this could decrease the demand for our products and services increase our cost of operations or otherwise hurt our business.
 
Risks Related to Our Common Stock
 
The market price for our common stock is likely to be highly volatile and subject to wide fluctuations in response to factors including the following:
 
o Actual or anticipated variations in our quarterly operating results.
 
9

 
o Announcements of technological innovations or new services by us or our competitors.
 
o Changes in financial estimates by securities analysts.
 
o Conditions or trends in the Internet or online commerce industries.
 
o Changes in the economic performance or market valuations of other Internet, online commerce or travel companies.
 
o Announcements by us or our competitors of significant acquisitions, strategic partnerships, joint ventures or capital commitments.
 
o Additions or departures of key personnel.
 
o Release of lock-up or other transfer restrictions on our outstanding shares of common stock or sales of additional shares of common stock.
 
o Potential litigation
 
Because we have a limited operating history, you may consider any one of these factors to be material. Our stock price may fluctuate widely as a result of any of the above listed factors, as well as others. In addition, the securities markets have from time to time experienced significant price and volume fluctuations that are unrelated to the operating performance of particular companies. These market fluctuations may also materially and adversely affect the market price of our common stock.
 
There is no assurance of an established public trading market, which would adversely affect the ability of investors in our company to sell their securities in the public markets.
 
Although our common stock trades on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board (the "OTCBB"), a regular trading market for the securities may not be sustained in the future. The NASD has enacted recent changes that limit quotations on the OTCBB to securities of issuers that are current in their reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The effect on the OTCBB of these rule changes and other proposed changes cannot be determined at this time. The OTCBB is an inter-dealer, Over-The-Counter market that provides significantly less liquidity than the NASD's automated quotation system (the "NASDAQ Stock Market"). Quotes for stocks included on the OTCBB are not listed in the financial sections of newspapers as are those for The Nasdaq Stock Market. Therefore, prices for securities traded solely on the OTCBB may be difficult to obtain and holders of common stock may be unable to resell their securities at or near their original offering price or at any price. Market prices for our common stock will be influenced by a number of factors, including:
 
o the issuance of new equity securities;
 
o changes in interest rates;
 
o competitive developments, including announcements by competitors of new products or services or significant contracts, acquisitions, strategic partnerships, joint ventures or capital commitments;
 
o variations in quarterly operating results;
 
o change in financial estimates by securities analysts;
 
o the depth and liquidity of the market for our common stock;
 
o investor perceptions of our company and the technologies industries generally; and
 
o general economic and other national conditions.
 
The limited public market and trading market may cause volatility in the market price of our common stock.
 
Our common stock is currently traded on a limited basis on the OTCBB under the symbol "TVLS.OB" The quotation of our common stock on the OTCBB does not assure that a meaningful, consistent and liquid trading market currently exists, and in recent years such market has experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations that have particularly affected the market prices of many smaller companies like us. Our common stock is thus subject to volatility. In the absence of an active trading market:
 
o investors may have difficulty buying and selling or obtaining market quotations;
 
o market visibility for our common stock may be limited; and
 
o a lack of visibility for our common stock may have a depressive effect on the market for our common stock.
 
Our stock price has historically been volatile and the future market price for our common stock may continue to be volatile. Further, the limited market for our shares will make our price more volatile. This may make it difficult for you to sell our common stock for a positive return on your investment.
 
The public market for our common stock has historically been very volatile. For example since January 1, 2004 the closing market price for our common stock has ranged from $2.81to $0.25. Any future market price for our shares may
 
10

 
continue to be very volatile. This price volatility may make it more difficult for you to sell shares when you want at prices you find attractive. We do not know of any one particular factor that has caused volatility in our stock price. However, the stock market in general has experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations that often are unrelated or disproportionate to the operating performance of companies. Broad market factors and the investing public's negative perception of our business may reduce our stock price, regardless of our operating performance. Market fluctuations and volatility, as well as general economic, market and political conditions, could reduce our market price. As a result, this may make it difficult or impossible for you to sell our common stock for a positive return on your investment.
 
The Company's common stock may be considered a "penny stock" and may be difficult to sell.
 
To be considered to be a "penny stock," securities must meet one or more of the definitions in Rules 15g-2 through 15g-6 promulgated under Section 15(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. These include but are not limited to the following: (i) the stock trades at a price less than $5.00 per share;
 
(ii) it is NOT traded on a "recognized" national exchange; (iii) it is NOT quoted on the NASDAQ Stock Market, or even if so, has a price less than $5.00 per share; or (iv) is issued by a company with net tangible assets less than $2.0 million, if in business more than a continuous three years, or with average revenues of less than $6.0 million for the past three years. The principal result or effect of being designated a "penny stock" is that securities broker-dealers cannot recommend the stock but must trade in it on an unsolicited basis. Section 15(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and Rule 15g-2 promulgated thereunder by the SEC require broker-dealers dealing in penny stocks to provide potential investors with a document disclosing the risks of penny stocks and to obtain a manually signed and dated written receipt of the document before effecting any transaction in a penny stock for the investor's account.
 
Potential investors in the Company's common stock are urged to obtain and read such disclosure carefully before purchasing any shares that are deemed to be "penny stock." Moreover, Rule 15g-9 requires broker-dealers in penny stocks to approve the account of any investor for transactions in such stocks before selling any penny stock to that investor. This procedure requires the broker-dealer to (i) obtain from the investor information concerning his or her financial situation, investment experience and investment objectives; (ii) reasonably determine, based on that information, that transactions in penny stocks are suitable for the investor and that the investor has sufficient knowledge and experience as to be reasonably capable of evaluating the risks of penny stock transactions; (iii) provide the investor with a written statement setting forth the basis on which the broker-dealer made the determination in
 
(ii) above; and (iv) receive a signed and dated copy of such statement from the investor, confirming that it accurately reflects the investor's financial situation, investment experience and investment objectives. Compliance with these requirements may make it more difficult for holders of the Company's common stock to resell their shares to third parties or to otherwise dispose of them in the market or otherwise.
 
Shares eligible for future sale may adversely affect the market price of our common stock, as the future sale of a substantial amount of our restricted stock in the public marketplace could reduce the price of our common stock.
 
From time to time, certain of our stockholders may be eligible to sell all or some of their shares of common stock by means of ordinary brokerage transactions in the open market pursuant to Rule 144, promulgated under the Securities Act ("Rule 144"), subject to certain limitations. In general, pursuant to Rule 144, a stockholder (or stockholders whose shares are aggregated) who has satisfied a one-year holding period may, under certain circumstances, sell within any three-month period a number of securities which does not exceed the greater of 1% of the then outstanding shares of common stock or the average weekly trading volume of the class during the four calendar weeks prior to such sale. Rule 144 also permits, under certain circumstances, the sale of securities, without any limitations, by a non-affiliate of our company that has satisfied a two-year holding period. Any substantial sale of common stock pursuant to Rule 144 or pursuant to any resale prospectus may have an adverse effect on the market price of our securities.
 
The market price of the Company's common stock may be adversely affected by several factors.
 
The market price of our common stock could fluctuate significantly in response to various factors and events, including:
 
o our ability to execute our business plan;
 
o operating results below expectations;
 
o loss of any strategic relationship;
 
o industry developments; o economic and other external factors; and
 
o period-to-period fluctuations in its financial results.
 
In addition, the securities markets have from time to time experienced significant price and volume fluctuations that are unrelated to the operating performance of particular companies. These market fluctuations may also materially and adversely affect the market price of our common stock.
 
We have not paid dividends in the past and do not expect to pay dividends in the future. Any return on investment may be limited to the value of our common stock
 
We have never paid cash dividends on our common stock and do not anticipate paying cash dividends in the foreseeable future. The payment of dividends on our common stock will depend on earnings, financial condition and other business and economic factors affecting it at such time as the board of directors may consider relevant. If we do not pay dividends, our common stock may be less valuable because a return on your investment will only occur if its stock price appreciates.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS
 
We and our representatives may from time to time make written or oral statements that are "forward-looking," including statements contained in this prospectus and other filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, reports to our stockholders and news releases. All statements that express expectations, estimates, forecasts or projections are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the Act. In addition, other written or oral statements which constitute forward-looking statements may be made by us or on our behalf. Words such as "expects," "anticipates," "intends," "plans," "believes," "seeks," "estimates," "projects," "forecasts," "may," "should," variations of such words and similar expressions are intended to identify such forward-looking statements. These statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions which are difficult to predict. Therefore, actual outcomes and results may differ materially from what is expressed or forecasted in or suggested by such forward-looking statements. We undertake no obligation to update publicly any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Important factors on which such statements are based are assumptions concerning uncertainties, including but not limited to uncertainties associated with the following:
 
(a) volatility or decline of our stock price;
 
(b) potential fluctuation in quarterly results;
 
(c) our failure to earn revenues or profits;
 
(d) inadequate capital and barriers to raising the additional capital or to obtaining the financing needed to implement its business plans;
 
(e) inadequate capital to continue business;
 
(f) changes in demand for our products and services;
 
(g) rapid and significant changes in markets;
 
(h) litigation with or legal claims and allegations by outside parties; and
 
(i) insufficient revenues to cover operating costs.
 
USE OF PROCEEDS
 
This prospectus relates to shares of our common stock that may be offered and sold from time to time by the selling stockholders. We will not receive any proceeds from the sale of shares of common stock in this offering. However, we will receive the sale price of any common stock we sell to the selling stockholder upon exercise of the 1,606,000 warrants. We expect to use the proceeds received from the exercise of these warrants, if any, for general working capital purposes
 
SELLING STOCKHOLDERS
 
The following table sets forth the common stock ownership of the selling stockholders as of  October 22, 2007. The selling stockholders acquired their securities through a private placement of common stock and Series A and Series B warrants pursuant to a private placement completed in November of 2006 and in various private transactions. For more information on this private placement, please see below.
 
We will not receive any proceeds from the resale of the common stock by the selling stockholders, except for any proceeds received upon the exercise by the selling stockholders of 1,606,600 warrants issued in connection with the private placement which completed in November of 2006. Assuming all the shares registered below are sold by the selling stockholders, none of the selling stockholders will continue to own any shares of our common stock. Other than as set forth in the following table, the selling stockholders have not held any position or office or had any other material relationship with us or any of our predecessors or affiliates within the past three years.

(1) Assumes that all securities registered will be sold.
 
(2) Applicable percentage ownership is based on 49,167,443 shares of common stock issued and outstanding as of October 22, 2007, together with securities exercisable into shares of common stock within 60 days of October 22, 2007 for each stockholder. Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission and generally includes voting or investment power with respect to securities. Shares of common stock that are currently exercisable or exercisable within 60 days of October 22, 2007 are deemed to be beneficially owned by the person holding such securities for the purpose of computing the percentage of ownership of such person, but are not treated as outstanding for the purpose of computing the percentage ownership of any other person. However the selling stockholders have contractually agreed to restrict their ability to own shares of common stock or exercise their warrants and receive shares of our common stock such that the number of shares of common stock held by them in the aggregate and their affiliates after such conversion or exercise does not exceed 4.99% of the then issued and outstanding shares of common stock as determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Exchange Act. Accordingly, the number of shares of common stock set forth in the table for the selling stockholders exceeds the number of shares of common stock that the selling stockholders could own beneficially at any given time through their ownership of the shares and the warrants. In that regard, the beneficial ownership of the common stock by the selling stockholder set forth in the table is not determined in accordance with Rule 13d-3 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended.

(3) Includes (i) 160,000 shares issuable upon exercise of Series A warrants,
 
(ii) 160,000 shares issuable upon exercise of Series B warrants, and (iii) 640,000 shares of common stock. In accordance with rule 13d-3 under the securities exchange act of 1934, Whalehaven Capital Fund Limited is a private investment fund that is owned by all of its investors and managed by Michael Finkelstein and Bhavesh Singh. Evan Schemenauer, Arthur Jones and Jennifer Kelly may be deemed control persons of the shares owned by such entity, with final voting power and investment control over such shares. The selling stockholder has notified us that they are not broker-dealers and/or affiliates of broker-dealers.
 
(4) Includes (i) 80,000 shares issuable upon exercise of Series A warrants,
 
(ii) 80,000 shares issuable upon exercise of Series B warrants, and (iii) 320,000 shares of common stock. In accordance with rule 13d-3 under the securities exchange act of 1934, Nite Capital L.P., is a private investment fund that is owned by its investors and managed by the general partner whose manager is Keith Goodman, who, has voting and investment control, over the shares listed. Mr. Goodman disclaims beneficial ownership of such shares. The selling stockholder has notified us that they are not broker-dealers and/or affiliates of broker-dealers.
 
(5) Includes (i) 120,000 shares issuable upon exercise of Series A warrants,
 
(ii) 120,000 shares issuable upon exercise of Series B warrants, and (iii) 480,000 shares of common stock. In accordance with rule 13d-3 under the securities exchange act of 1934,  Maxi Brezzi and Bachir Taleb-Ibrahimi, in their capacity as managers of Cantara (Switzerland) SA, the investment advisor to Crescent International Ltd., have voting control and investment discretion over the shares owned by Crescent International Ltd. Messrs. Craw, Brezzi and Taleb-Ibrahimi disclaim beneficial ownership of such shares. The selling stockholder has notified us that they are not broker-dealers or affiliates of broker-dealers and that they believe they are not required to be broker-dealers.

PLAN OF DISTRIBUTION
 
The selling stockholders and any of their respective pledgees, donees, assignees and other successors-in-interest may, from time to time, sell any or all of their shares of common stock on any stock exchange, market or trading facility on which the shares are traded or in private transactions. These sales may be at fixed or negotiated prices. The selling stockholders may use any one or more of the following methods when selling shares:
 
o ordinary brokerage transactions and transactions in which the broker-dealer solicits the purchaser;
 
o block trades in which the broker-dealer will attempt to sell the shares as agent but may position and resell a portion of the block as principal to facilitate the transaction;
 
o purchases by a broker-dealer as principal and resale by the broker-dealer for its account;
 
o an exchange distribution in accordance with the rules of the applicable exchange;

15

 
o privately-negotiated transactions;
 
o short sales that are not violations of the laws and regulations of any state or the United States;
 
o broker-dealers may agree with the selling stockholders to sell a specified number of such shares at a stipulated price per share;
 
o through the writing of options on the shares;
 
o a combination of any such methods of sale; and
 
o any other method permitted pursuant to applicable law.
 
The selling stockholders may also sell shares under Rule 144 under the Securities Act, if available, rather than under this prospectus. The selling stockholders shall have the sole and absolute discretion not to accept any purchase offer or make any sale of shares if they deem the purchase price to be unsatisfactory at any particular time.
 
The selling stockholders may also engage in short sales against the box, puts and calls and other transactions in our securities or derivatives of our securities and may sell or deliver shares in connection with these trades.
 
The selling stockholders or their respective pledgees, donees, transferees or other successors in interest, may also sell the shares directly to market makers acting as principals and/or broker-dealers acting as agents for themselves or their customers. Such broker-dealers may receive compensation in the form of discounts, concessions or commissions from the selling stockholders and/or the purchasers of shares for whom such broker-dealers may act as agents or to whom they sell as principal or both, which compensation as to a particular broker-dealer might be in excess of customary commissions. Market makers and block purchasers purchasing the shares will do so for their own account and at their own risk. It is possible that a selling stockholder will attempt to sell shares of common stock in block transactions to market makers or other purchasers at a price per share which may be below the then market price. The selling stockholders cannot assure that all or any of the shares offered in this prospectus will be issued to, or sold by, the selling stockholders. The selling stockholders and any brokers, dealers or agents, upon effecting the sale of any of the shares offered in this prospectus, may be deemed to be "underwriters" as that term is defined under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, or the rules and regulations under such acts. In such event, any commissions received by such broker-dealers or agents and any profit on the resale of the shares purchased by them may be deemed to be underwriting commissions or discounts under the Securities Act.
 
We are required to pay all fees and expenses incident to the registration of the shares, including fees and disbursements of counsel to the selling stockholders, but excluding brokerage commissions or underwriter discounts.
 
The selling stockholders, alternatively, may sell all or any part of the shares offered in this prospectus through an underwriter. No selling stockholder has entered into any agreement with a prospective underwriter and there is no assurance that any such agreement will be entered into.
 
The selling stockholders may pledge their shares to their brokers under the margin provisions of customer agreements. If a selling stockholder defaults on a margin loan, the broker may, from time to time, offer and sell the pledged shares. The selling stockholders and any other persons participating in the sale or distribution of the shares will be subject to applicable provisions of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations under such act, including, without limitation, Regulation M. These provisions may restrict certain activities of, and limit the timing of purchases and sales of any of the shares by, the selling stockholders or any other such person. In the event that the selling stockholders are deemed affiliated purchasers or distribution participants within the meaning of Regulation M, then the selling stockholders will not be permitted to engage in short sales of common stock. Furthermore, under Regulation M, persons engaged in a distribution of securities are prohibited from simultaneously engaging in market making and certain other activities with respect to such securities for a specified period of time prior to the commencement of such distributions, subject to specified exceptions or exemptions. In regards to short sells, the selling stockholder can only cover its short position with the securities they receive from us upon conversion. In addition, if such short sale is deemed to be a stabilizing activity, then the selling stockholder will not be permitted to engage in a short sale of our common stock. All of these limitations may affect the marketability of the shares.
 
We have agreed to indemnify the selling stockholders, or their transferees or assignees, against certain liabilities, including liabilities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or to contribute to payments the selling stockholders or their respective pledgees, donees, transferees or other successors in interest, may be required to make in respect of such liabilities.
 
If the selling stockholders notify us that they have a material arrangement with a broker-dealer for the resale of the common stock, then we would be required to amend the registration statement of which this prospectus is a part, and file a prospectus supplement to describe the agreements between the selling stockholders and the broker-dealer.

The payment of any dividends will be within the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors and may be subject to restrictions under the terms of any debt or other financing arrangements that the Company may enter into in the future.

Equity Compensation Plan Information
 
In April 2003, our Board of Directors adopted our 2003 Company Stock Option Plan ("2006 Stock Option Plan" or "Plan"), which was amended by the Company in July of 2003 to increase the amount of shares of Common Stock which the Company was authorized to issue under the plan from 480,000 shares to 2,500,000 shares, in August 2006 to increase the number of such shares to 3,500,000, and in September 2007 to increase the number of such shares to 5,000,00. The Plan provides the Company's board of directors to grant to the Company's directors, officers, employees and consultants stock options under the Plan.
 
The Plan provides that the exercise price for ISOs and NSOs is not less than the fair market value per share of our common stock at the date of grant. The Company cannot reprice outstanding options granted under the 2003 Stock Option Plan without the consent of its stockholders. The option exercise price must be paid in full at the time the notice of exercise of the option is delivered to us and must be tendered in cash, or by personal or certified check. The Plan's Administrator has the discretion to permit a participant to exercise by delivering a combination of shares and cash. The term of each option may not exceed a term of 10 years of the date of grant. However, if ISOs are granted to persons owning more than 10% of our voting stock, the exercise price may not be less than 110% of the fair market value per share at the date of grant, and the term of the ISOs may not exceed five years.

Company History
 
We were incorporated in the State of California on February 5, 1998 under the name Advanced Refrigeration Technologies, Inc. Our original business operations consisted of designing, manufacturing and marketing an energy efficiency evaporator fan motor controller for walk-in refrigerators and freezers. We were unsuccessful in that business and were unable to continue our operations. From August 2002, we were actively engaged in finding a potential investor to acquire it and bring in a new business.
 
As of June 11, 2003, we consummated a transaction, whereby we acquired all of the issued and outstanding shares of Joystar, Inc., a Nevada corporation ("Joystar - Nevada") in exchange for the issuance by us of a total of 13,880,599 newly issued restricted shares of common voting stock to the Joystar-Nevada shareholders pursuant to the Agreement and Plan of Reorganization, dated as of June 10, 2003, by and between our company and Joystar. We issued a total of 13,880,599 shares of common stock to Joystar-Nevada shareholders in the transaction. We paid $60,000 at the closing of the transaction for some of the debts of Advanced Refrigeration Technologies, Inc., and assumed additional liabilities of our company in the approximate amount of $55,000. Upon the closing, the all present officers of our company resigned and William M. Alverson was appointed as our President, Chief Financial Officer and Secretary. Upon the closing, William M. Alverson was appointed to our Board of Directors. An additional director was appointed as of June 18, 2003. Immediately prior to the share exchange, there were approximately 3,322,840 shares of our common stock issued and outstanding. As a result of the acquisition, there were approximately 17,203,439 shares of common stock issued and outstanding.
 
The Asset Sale and Purchase Contract which was entered by and between Advanced Refrigeration Technologies, Inc. and Advanced Refrigeration Controls, Inc, a newly formed corporation by the former shareholders of our company, included the total assets consisting of inventories, fixed assets and patents for a total value of $85,063 and the assumption of liabilities including primarily former shareholders loans, for a total amount of $105,217. We had a gain of $20,154 on the disposition of assets and liabilities.
 
As of June 4, 2004, we and our wholly-owned subsidiary were officially merged with and into Joystar, Inc., a California corporation (formerly Advanced Refrigeration Technologies, Inc.) pursuant to Section 1110(a) of the California Corporations Code and Section 92A.200 of Nevada Revised Statutes. In connection with the merger we provided for the name change from Advanced Refrigeration Technologies, Inc. to Joystar, Inc., pursuant to Section 1110(d) of the California Corporations Code. The merger and the name change were approved by our Board of Directors pursuant to Section 1110(a). The shareholders approval was not required under the California law to effect the merger and the name change and was not obtained for this action.
 
On June 21, 2007, we filed a certificate of amendment to our Articles of Incorporation. The amendment changed the name of the Company from "Joystar, Inc." to "Travelstar, Inc." The amendment also increased our authorized capital from 50,000,000 shares of common stock and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock to 200,000,000 shares of common stock and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock. The amendment was approved by our Board of Directors and by written consent of the majority of shareholders.
 
Recent Developments
 
On November 16, 2006, we sold in a private placement of up to $2,500,000, a total of 3,212,000 shares (the "Shares") of our common stock, no par value per share, at a purchase price of $0.625 per share to institutional and accredited investors, for a total purchase price of $2,007,500. In addition to the Shares, on the closing date, we issued and delivered Series A and B Warrants to the investors (collectively the "Warrants"). One Series A Warrant and one Series B Warrant was issued for each four Shares issued, for a total of 803,000 Series A Warrants and 803,000 Series B Warrants. Series A Warrants are exercisable into common stock at $0.85 per share and Series B Warrants are exercisable at $1.00 per share. The Series A and B Warrants are exercisable until five (5) years after the closing date.
 
We paid 10% commissions in cash in the amount of $200,750 and issued 321,200 common stock purchase warrants to First Montauk Securities Corp. of Red Bank, New Jersey, member NASD, who acted as a selling agent for the financing. We received total net proceeds of $1,766,750, after deducting the legal fees and commissions. The net proceeds will be used by us for working capital purposes.
 
The shares and warrants were offered and sold by us to investors whom we had reasonable grounds to believe were "accredited investors" within the meaning of Rule 501 of Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act"). The investors were provided access to business and financial about us and had such knowledge and experience in business and financial matters that it was able to evaluate the risks and merits of an investment in our company.

Business
 
We specialize in selling complex travel products including cruises, vacation packages and group travel through its national sales force of cruise and vacation specialists. Consumers planning and purchasing a trip generally engage in a predictable process that begins with considering destinations, dates and budgets, and progresses to a series of purchase decisions involving transportation, accommodations and destination activities. Historically, this planning and purchasing process has been inefficient because consumers have to spend a significant amount of time piecing together the information from a variety of sources. Consumers frequently consulted many different media and people, such as guidebooks, magazines, travel agents, friends, co-workers and individual travel suppliers. The supply side of the travel industry can be equally inefficient. The supplier community includes hundreds of airlines, thousands of hotels, dozens of car rental companies, numerous vacation packagers and cruise lines and hundreds of thousands of destination services merchants such as restaurants, attractions, and local transportation and tour providers. These suppliers spend substantial amounts of money to reach and attract potential purchasers. The fragmental nature of the global consumer travel market makes it difficult and inefficient for suppliers to effectively target those consumers who are currently engaged in the travel planning process.
 
Consumers and suppliers rely on travel agents as intermediaries to provide information on their travel choices and help them purchase their trips. Our travel agents have access to comprehensive information on the availability and pricing of airline seats through global distribution systems. We make it possible for our travel agents to provide consumers reliable, comprehensive travel information.
 
We have been able to combat the inefficiency and fragmentation of the industry with technology. We use technology to make the process of planning and purchasing travel easier for our agents and customers.
 
We plan to offer travel planning services in the United Sates, the United Kingdom, Canada, and the Puerto Rico. Our products are planned to include direct-to- consumer travel planning services sold via the Internet and call centers, our co-branded private label business.
 
TRAVEL AGENCY MODEL
 
When selling travel, we act as either an intermediary or a merchant. When we transact travel bookings acting as an intermediary, we pass a customer's reservation to the travel supplier (hotel, cruise line, tour operator, car rental, etc.). In the intermediary transaction, the supplier sets the retail price paid by the customer, and the supplier is the merchant of record for the transaction. We receive a commission from the travel supplier after the travel has been completed.
 
In a merchant transaction, we receive access to consolidator fares (wholesale airline seats and hotel rooms) from suppliers at negotiated net rates. We determine the "mark-up" and process the transaction as the merchant of record. Acting as a merchant enables us to achieve a higher level of gross profit than in the agency model.
 
HOST AGENCY MODEL
 
We provide syndicated technology, hosting, and support services to a growing network of both part-time and full-time independent cruise and vacation agents. We provide our independent agents with the technology, tools, training and back office support to facilitate the operation of a successful and rewarding business.
 
We benefit from membership fees, a share of the commission generated by the travel agent, overrides and annual bonuses from the supplier community. Additionally, the value of the members' total bookings allows us to negotiate higher commissions, marketing dollars and co-op support from the supplier community.
 
EXPERIENCED TRAVEL AGENTS
 
A large number of experienced travel agents and agency owners are closing their "bricks-n-mortar" agencies in an effort to control costs. We have developed three programs which address the unique needs of the travel agent community.
 
The benefits of our programs include private label and co-branded consumer websites, 24/7 access to "myTravelstar" - our popular "agents only" extranet, sales and product training, email marketing programs, the latest booking tools, weekly e-newsletter, daily conference calls, access to the Travelstar Community and CEO Blog, and unlimited access to our always friendly toll-free agent support staff.
 
WE ARE CREATING THE NEW BREED OF TRAVEL SELLERS
 
According to the Department of Labor statistics over 13 million people currently operate a home-based business and over 1,500 new home-based businesses are opened every day. Technology advances within the travel industry have made it very easy for someone without travel agency experience to succeed as a home-based agent.
 
19

 
The benefits of "owning a travel agency" for as little as $500 per year appeal to small business owners, home-based and internet entrepreneurs, stay-at-home moms, affluent travelers, web masters and super-affiliates, churches, little league teams, schools and other non-profit organizations. The potential market for this model is in the millions of home-based travel agents and online affiliates.
 
In order to ensure the success of new agents, improve the income of our experienced agents, and reduce the potential customer service burden, we are developing a "mentor" program. Each new agent will be assigned to a qualifying experienced agent that will provide guidance during the training period. The commission generated during this mentorship will be shared between the trainee and the mentor.
 
Revenues from commissions and transaction fees generated by the agents through booking travel with their clients are shared between us and the agent. We aim to develop a membership base of 50,000 agents and online affiliates over the next 5 years. We believe that with the tools, technology, marketing resources and superior support we provide our agents, they will produce an average of $10,000 per year in leisure bookings.
 
Our Strategy
 
As professional travel agents are adapting to a changing industry, a new business model has emerged - home-based travel agent hosting and IT outsourcing.
 
Independent agents and agency owners are looking for ways to increase revenues, reduce costs, and streamline operations. They are also becoming more and more reliant on both technology and the Internet. We answer the call by relieving travel agents and agency owners of non-revenue producing tasks, providing instant technology solutions, marketing programs, and unlimited support - empowering them to do what they do best - sell travel.
 
We are proving to be the hands-down choice for serious travel professionals who want to flourish in this changing and exciting time in the industry. Since the launch of our hosting program in August of 2004, we have signed up over 3,000 agents making us the largest and fastest growing agency in the industry.
 
We believe that the hosting models for professional home-based agents will complement our program targeted to the over 13 million Americans who are currently operating home-based businesses. In this model, we aim to enroll 50,000 members by 2010. Our strategy for reaching this massive group of home-based entrepreneurs covers multiple channels including marketing websites, search engine optimization, email marketing and print advertising.
 
Target Market
 
Consumers planning and purchasing a trip generally engage in a predictable process that begins with considering destinations, dates and budgets, and progresses to a series of purchase decisions involving transportation, accommodations and destination activities. Historically, this planning and purchasing process has been inefficient because consumers have to spend a significant amount of time piecing together the information from a variety of sources. Consumers frequently consulted many different media and people, such as guidebooks, magazines, travel agents, friends, co-workers and individual travel suppliers. The supply side of the travel industry can be equally inefficient. The supplier community includes hundreds of airlines, thousands of hotels, dozens of car rental companies, numerous vacation packagers and cruise lines and hundreds of thousands of destination services merchants such as restaurants, attractions, and local transportation and tour providers. These suppliers spend substantial amounts of money to reach and attract potential purchasers. The fragmental nature of the global consumer travel market makes it difficult and inefficient for suppliers to effectively target those consumers who are currently engaged in the travel planning process.
 
Consumers and suppliers rely on travel agents as intermediaries to provide information on their travel choices and help them purchase their trips. Our travel agents have access to comprehensive information on the availability and pricing of airline seats through global distribution systems. We make it possible for our travel agents to provide consumers reliable, comprehensive travel information.
 
We have been able to combat the inefficiency and fragmentation of the industry with technology. We use technology to make the process of planning and purchasing travel easier for their agents and customers.
 
Geographic Area of Services
 
We plan to offer travel planning services in the United Sates, the United Kingdom, Canada, Puerto Rico, and China. Our products are planned to include direct-to-consumer travel planning services sold via the Internet, call centers, and our co-branded private label website solutions.

Industry
 
According to a recent report by Credit Suisse/First Boston, there are approximately 20,000 professional travel agents working from their homes. That number is expected to grow to nearly 50,000 by 2010. This emerging group represents an estimated $7.6 billion annually in travel sales. While online travel continues to grow, travel agents are the dominant force in travel distribution, especially in the complex, high-grossing products including vacations, cruises, and group travel. A recent study conducted by the Cruise Line Industry, concluded that 90% of the 10 million people who went on a cruise last year, booked through a travel agent.
 
Typical of traditional travel agencies in America, the competitive landscape in the Host Travel Agency space is highly fragmented. The American Society of Travel Agents reported recently that there are approximately 21,000 "Mom & Pop" travel agencies, each hosting between one and five home-based agents. And while there are several "mid-tier" host agencies with sales ranging from $50 million to $100 million, no dominant player exists. We aim to be the dominant participant in the industry.
 
Government Regulation
 
TRAVEL INDUSTRY REGULATION
 
We must comply with laws and regulations relating to the travel industry and the sale of travel services. These include registering with various states and countries as a seller of travel, complying with certain disclosure requirements and participating in state restitution funds. Both the Federal Trade Commission and the Department of Transportation take the position that their regulations prohibiting unfair and deceptive advertising practices apply to our business.
 
REGULATIONS OF THE INTERNET
 
Currently, few laws and regulations apply directly to the Internet and commercial online services and, to the extent such laws exist or apply to us, we believe we are in compliance with all of them. The following summary does not purport to be complete discussion of all enacted or pending regulations and policies that may affect our business. This summary focuses primarily on the enacted federal, state and international legislation specific to businesses that operate as we do. For further information concerning the nature and extent of federal, state and international regulation of online businesses, you should review public notices and rulings of the U.S. Congress, state and local legislature and international bodies.
 
Due to the growth of the Internet and online commerce, coupled with publicity regarding Internet fraud, new laws and regulations are continually being considered (at the federal, state and international levels) regarding property ownership, sales and other taxes, pricing and content, advertising, intellectual property rights, libel, user privacy, and information security. New laws or different applications of existing laws would likely impose additional burdens on companies conducting business online and may decrease the growth of the Internet or commercial online services. In turn, this could decrease the demand for our products and services or increase our cost of doing business. We cannot predict whether any of the proposed privacy legislation currently pending will be enacted and what effect, if any, it would have on our company.
 
TAXES
 
Federal regulation imposing limitations on the ability of states to impose taxes on Internet-based sales was enacted in 1998 and extended in 2001. The Internet Tax Non-Disclosure Act, as this legislation is known, exempts certain types of sales transactions conducted over the Internet from multiple or discriminatory state and local taxation through November 1, 2003. It is possible this legislation will not be renewed when it terminates. Failure to renew this legislation could allow state and local governments to impose taxes on Internet-based sales, and these taxes could decrease the demand for our products or services or increase our cost of operations.
 
PRIVACY
 
As an online business, customers provide us with personally identifiable information (PII) that has been specifically and voluntarily given. PII includes information that can identify a customer as a specific individual, such as name, phone number, or e-mail address. This information is used only for the purpose of responding to and fulfilling customer requests for our travel products and services. We will only share customer PII with our authorized travel service providers, and only as necessary in order to complete a transaction that customers specifically request. We do not sell or rent PII to anyone. We provide customers with choice and control over the collection and use of their PII, as well as a means of updating, correcting, or removing any PII stored in their customer profile. Customers are provided the opportunity to specifically choose the promotional marketing communications they wish to receive from our company. If they choose to opt-out any of the promotional e-mail services that we provide, then we will only send e-mail that relates to a specific travel purchase they have made through us.
 
CURRENT US FEDERAL PRIVACY REGULATION
 
Increasing concern over consumer privacy, including regulations related to the use of the Internet for conducting transactions and electronic commerce, has led to the introduction of proposed legislation at the federal level. The most far-reaching of these current laws are focused on financial institutions, health
 
21

 
care providers, and companies that voluntarily solicit information form children. For businesses that operate online such as us, the Unsolicited Electronic Mail Act of 1999 has been enacted to protect individuals, families, and internet service providers from unsolicited and unwanted electronic mail, commonly referred to as spamming. Additionally, the Federal Trade Commission has a role in consumer privacy protection and is involved with related enforcement activities.
 
CURRENT STATE PRIVACY REGULATION
 
Most states have enacted legislation to regulate the protection of consumers' information on the Internet. Much of this legislation is focused on financial institutions and health care providers. The legislation that has become state law is a small percentage of the number still pending, and is similar to what has been enacted at the federal level. We cannot predict whether any of the proposed state privacy legislation currently pending review will be enacted and what effect, if any, it would have on our company.
 
Competition
 
We cannot assure you that we will be able to compete successfully against current and future competitors. Competitive pressures faced by us could have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results and financial condition.
 
We believe that establishing, maintaining and enhancing our brand will be a critical aspect of our efforts to attract and expand our online traffic. The number of Internet sites that offer competing services, many of which already have well-established brands in online services or the travel industry generally, increases the importance of establishing and maintaining brand recognition. Promotion of the Travelstar brand will depend largely on our success in providing a high-quality online experience supported by a high level of customer service. In addition, to attract and retain online users and to respond to competitive pressures, we intend to increase our spending substantially on marketing and advertising with the intention of expanding our brand recognition. However, we cannot assure you that these expenditures will be effective to promote our brand or that our marketing efforts generally will achieve our goals.
 
If we are unable to provide high-quality online services or customer support, if we fail to promote and maintain our brand or if we incur excessive expenses in these efforts, our business, operating results and financial condition would be materially adversely affected. If we are unable to introduce and sell new products and services, our business may be harmed.
 
We need to broaden the range of travel products and services and increase the availability of products and services that we offer in order to enhance our service. We will incur substantial expenses and use significant resources trying to expand the range of products and services that we offer. However, we may not be able to attract sufficient travel suppliers and other participants to provide desired products and services to our consumers. In addition, consumers may find that delivery through our service is less attractive than other alternatives. If we launch new products and services and they are not favorably received by consumers, our reputation and the value of the Travelstar brand could be damaged.
 
Our relationships with consumers and travel suppliers are mutually dependent since consumers will not use a service that does not offer a broad range of travel services. Similarly, travel suppliers will not use a service unless consumers actively make travel purchases through it. We cannot predict whether we will be successful in expanding the range of products and services that we offer. If we are unable to expand successfully, our business, operating results and financial condition may be materially adversely affected. We may be unable to plan and manage our operations and growth effectively.
 
On February 28, 2005, we announced a new program for professional home-based travel agents. PRO-100 offers independent and home-based travel agents all of the benefits of our popular AGENT ADVANTAGE PRO, including a consumer website, "Agents Only" extranet and live toll free support.
 
We offer two booking solutions, a consumer view and an "Agents Only" booking tool. This combination blends real-time access to cruise line inventory to deliver the best response times and closing ratios. The features included are:
 
Co-branded Private Label Cruise Web-Site - An easy, no maintenance solution providing cruise content, technology, and fulfillment with no up-front costs. Private Label Cruise Web-Site - Content, technology, and fulfillment services are housed in a customized user interface. Maintains look and feel as well as branding integrity of the partner's Web site. Connectivity as well as access to robust cruise content, including cruise descriptions, cabin categories, deck plans, amenities, and more.
 
Seasonality
 
Our limited operating history and anticipated rapid growth will make it difficult for us to assess the impact of seasonal factors on our business. Nevertheless, we expect our business to be subject to seasonal fluctuations, reflecting seasonal trends for the products and services offered by our websites. For example, demand for travel bookings may increase in anticipation of summer vacations and holiday periods, but online travel bookings may decline with reduced Internet usage during the summer months. These factors could cause our revenues to fluctuate from quarter to quarter. Our results may also be affected by seasonal fluctuations in the inventory made available to our service by travel suppliers. Airlines, for example, typically enjoy high demand for tickets through traditional distribution channels for travel during holiday periods. As a result, during these periods, airlines may either have fewer inventories to offer through our service or available tickets may be less competitively priced. These same factors are expected to affect rental cars, hotels and other travel products and services.

Overview
 
Travelstar, Inc. sells complex leisure travel products through our virtual network of travel agents, company branded and private label websites. We empower travel entrepreneurs and leisure travelers with the tools and information they need to efficiently research, plan, and book travel. The effect of having such a massive and growing network of independent and home-based travel retailers all booking under the Travelstar Agency umbrella is significantly increasing our sales and revenue, and building strong brand recognition.
 
We refer to Travelstar, Inc. and its brands collectively as "Travelstar," the "Company," "us," "we" and "our" in this management's discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations. For additional information about our brands, see the disclosure set forth in Part I, Item 1, Business, under the caption "Management Overview."
 
Tens of thousands of travel agents who are closing their storefront agencies and moving to a home-based operation are creating a value migration in the rapidly emerging host travel agency model. Because of our strong value proposition, we have been very successful in attracting profession travel agents and at the same time, eroding our competitors' market share. Since going to market with our hosting programs in August 2004, Travelstar has signed up over5,000 travel agents making it one of the fastest growing and largest leisure travel network in the industry.
 
Throughout 2006, Travelstar's commission levels with our preferred suppliers increased substantially. With the acquisition of the Miami Cruise Center, the enhanced commission levels that Travelstar offers travel agents are some of the highest in the industry.
 
TRENDS
 
The travel industry and particularly the travel agency business model, has experienced significant change in this decade. The advent of the Internet and online travel agencies has forever changed the way travel products are distributed. Travel agents were forced to retool their business models which included the elimination of high costs associated with operating a store fronts and identifying markets where their knowledge and service would ensure they remained relevant in the eyes of travelers.
 
23

 
Today, similar to the way real estate agents, mortgage bankers, stock brokers and insurance agents have been able to effectively telecommute, tens of thousands of experienced travel sellers operate their businesses virtually. According to a recent report issued by Credit Suisse/First Boston, there are currently 25,000 professional, home-based agents. This number is expected to grow to approximately 50,000 agents by 2010.
 
In the United States, Telecommuting has been growing at 15% a year since 1990. It is believed that approximately 80% of Fortune 1000 companies are likely to employ telecommuters within this decade.
 
Factors that will continue to affect the future of telecommuting worldwide include the availability of bandwidth and fast Internet connections in a given country; social methodologies for balancing work control and work freedom; the perceived values and economies in telecommuting; and the opportunities and need for working collaboratively across large distances, including globally.
 
According to the Direct Sales Association, the number of Americans operating a home-based business has grown from 8.5 million in 1996 to 14.1 million in 2005.
 
The baby-boomer population is estimated at over 70 million domestically and 450 million worldwide. This group is expected to spend both their discretionary time and income on travel related products and services.
 
STRATEGY
 
We intend to aggressively innovate on behalf of travel agents including building a scalable, service -oriented technology platform which will extend across our consumer brands. We expect this to increase the income opportunity+ for our travel network as we will be providing them consumer leads and also drive profitability for the company as we will create travel bookings at a lower commission payout than our existing host travel agent programs.
 
We also intend to continue innovating on behalf of our preferred supplier partners. As an example, we launched Starbase, a customer relationship management system for our agents to better manage their businesses. Starbase streamlines the interaction and booking process between our agents, customers and suppliers. Through this "direct connect" technology, our agents can complete the booking process with some of our cruise lines and vacation suppliers easier and in a more cost effective for our suppliers. It also automatically notifies Travelstar's internal accounting of bookings and cancellations and provides agents with real time commission tracking. In the absence of this direct connect technology, these processes are completed manually via a proprietary extranet.
 
Currently, cruise vacations represent over two-thirds of our travel products sold. Although we expect continued significant increase in our cruise business, our goal is to grow our land-based vacation packages and tours to represent 75% of total gross bookings.
 
Our preferred supplier development team is negotiating with major vacation suppliers to increase our commissions to the levels we have attained with our major cruise suppliers. We believe this will attract high producing vacation agents to our network and drive sales and product mix.
 
SEASONALITY
 
We generally experience seasonal fluctuations in the demand for our travel products and services. For example, leisure travel bookings are generally the highest in the first quarter and gradually decline over the subsequent three quarters. The first quarter is highest due to wave season, when an estimated 70% of the yearly cruise line inventory is booked. There is a gradual drop off in the second and third quarters as travelers plan and book their spring, summer and winter vacations. In the fourth quarter, the number of leisure bookings decreases significantly. We have been able to offset the quarterly decline in bookings and revenue typical to the industry through the aggressive growth of our travel agent network.
 
CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES
 
To understand our financial position and results of operations, it is important to understand our critical accounting policies and estimates and the extent to which we use judgment and estimates in applying those policies. We prepared our financial statements and accompanying notes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States. Preparation of the financial statements and accompanying notes requires that we make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements and revenue and expenses during the periods reported.
 
Accounting estimates are an integral part of the financial statements prepared by management are based on management's current judgments. These judgments are normally based on knowledge and experience about past and current events and on assumptions about future events. Actual results may differ from our estimates under different assumptions or conditions.
 
24

 
There are certain critical estimates that we believe require significant judgment in the preparation of our financial statements. We consider an accounting estimate to be critical if:
 
o It requires us to make assumption because information was not available at the time or it included matters that were highly uncertain at the time we were making the estimate, and
 
o Changes in the estimate or different estimates that we could have selected may have had a material impact on our financial condition or results of operations.
 
Commission revenue for reservations is paid to the Company by travel suppliers, typically upon completion of the travel associated with the reservation. Because the average time lag between booking date and commission payment date is approximately six months, the Company recognizes a reserve against revenues for bookings that may not produce a collectible commission due to possible cancellations or other factors. For the year ended December 31, 2006, the Company recognized a reserve equal to 25% of the gross commissions earned. The Company will be monitoring receivables and adjusting the reserve levels on a regular basis, as required.
 
For more information on each of these policies, see Note 2 -- Significant Accounting Policies, in the notes to financial statements. We discuss information about the nature and rationale for our critical accounting estimates below.
 
STOCK-BASED COMPENSATION
 
We record stock-based compensation expense net of estimated forfeitures. In determining the estimated forfeiture rates for stock-based awards, we periodically conduct an assessment of the actual number of equity awards that have been forfeited to date as well as those expected to be forfeited in the future. We consider many factors when estimating expected forfeitures, including the type of award, the employee class and historical experience. The estimate of stock awards that will ultimately be forfeited requires significant judgment and to the extent that actual results or updated estimates differ from our current estimates, such amounts will be recorded as a cumulative adjustment in the period such estimates are revised.
 
NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
 
For a discussion of new accounting pronouncements, see Note 2 -- Significant Accounting Policies, in the notes to financial statements.
 
OPERATING METRICS
 
Gross travel bookings represent the total dollar value of transactions booked for both agency and merchant transactions, recorded at the time of booking reflecting the total price due for travel, including taxes, fees and other charges, and are generally not reduced for cancellations and refunds. The term "gross travel bookings" is a "non-GAAP financial measure", as such term is defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission, and may differ from non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies. The measure of "gross travel bookings" is in no way derived from the financial statements. Revenue recorded in the Company's financial statements represents a percentage of commissions or ticketing fees paid by travel suppliers on travel bookings, membership services revenue and override commissions from travel suppliers. The Company believes that the measure "gross travel bookings" is useful for investors to evaluate the Company's future ongoing performance because they enable a more meaningful comparison of the activity levels of the Company's travel agent network with its historical results from prior periods.
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
Please refer to the financial statements, which are a part of this report, for further information regarding the results of operations of the Company.
 
Results of Operations for the Three Months ended June 30, 2007 Compared to the Three Months Ended June 30, 2006
 
GROSS TRAVEL BOOKINGS
 
Gross travel bookings for the three months ended June 30, 2007 increased to $21,386,400 compared to $15,109,400 for the three months ended June 30, 2006. As described below, the Company received $2,250,296 and $2,553,579 of revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2007, and June 30, 2006, from such bookings.
 
REVENUE
 
Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2007 were $2,250,296 compared to $2,553,579 for the three months ended June 30, 2006. While gross travel bookings increased, this was offset by the fact that the Company took a reserve against revenues of 15% in the three months ended June 30, 2007, while no reserve was taken in the three months ended June 30, 2006. As of January 2007 the Company has changed its revenue recognition policy such that the Company only recognizes override revenues either upon receipt of funds or confirmation of entitlement from the travel supplier. As a result, during the three months ended June 30, 2007 the Company recognized $62,000 in override revenue, compared with $275,508 during the three months ended June 30, 2006. See the discussion of reserves in Note 2 to the Financial Statements.

SELLING AND MARKETING

Selling and marketing expenses relate to direct advertising and distribution expense, including traffic generation from Internet, search engines, private label and affiliate programs. The remainder of the expense relates to personnel costs, including staffing in our Agent Support Services and Preferred Supplier Relations to enhance supplier commission levels. Marketing and sales expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2007 were $1,836,660 compared to $1,419,710 for the three months ended June 30, 2006. The increase of $416,950 was primarily due to the increased payments to our travel agents as a result of their increased sales levels. Selling and marketing expenses relate to travel agent commissions, direct advertising and distribution expense, including traffic generation from Internet, search engines, private label and affiliate programs.

GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE

General and Administrative expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2007 decreased to $886,108 from $1,036,956 for three months ended June 30, 2006. The decrease was primarily due to reductions in employee compensation, professional fees, telephone and travel expenses. We expect absolute amounts spent on corporate personnel and professional service to increase over time as we develop new business units requiring additional headcount and continue incurring incremental costs associated with being a public company.

TECHNOLOGY AND CONTENT

 Technology and content expense includes product development expenses such as payroll and related expenses and depreciation of technology infrastructure, travel agent intranets, travel agent website, and consumer and social networking site development costs. In 2006, moved our software development to an India-based operation with our own employees. We employ web developers and designers in Kuala Lumpur, Pakistan, India and Spain. We also began outsourcing the development of certain large scale projects to China including the development of our consumer travel comparison marketplace, VacationCompare.com and our group travel social networking site, Travelstar.com.

 Technology and content expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2007 were $106,865 compared to $25,832 for the three months ended June 30, 2006. Given the increasing complexity of our business, geographic expansion, increased supplier integration, service-oriented architecture improvements and other initiatives, we expect absolute amounts spent in technology and content to increase over time. The Company recently hired a Chief Technology Officer.

ACCRUED LIABILITY RELATED TO WARRANTS AND STOCK PURCHASE RIGHTS
 
The Company accounts for freestanding derivative financial instruments potentially settled in its own common stock under Emerging Issues Task Force ("EITF") Issue No. 00-19, "Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to, and Potentially Settled in, a Company's Own Stock." As the Company potentially did not have, prior to June 21, 2007, sufficient authorized shares available to settle its open stock-based contracts, the initial fair value of the applicable contracts (consisting primarily of non-employee stock warrants and rights to purchase common stock- (see Note 5) has been classified as "accrued liability related to warrants and stock purchase rights" on the accompanying balance sheet and measured subsequently at fair value (based on a Black-Scholes computation), with gains and losses included in the statement of operations.

The accrued liability had a balance of $8,281,373 at December 31, 2006.

The value of the liability will vary based on the price of the Company’s common stock. During the three months ended March 31, 2007 the Company recorded a reduction in the value of the liability of $1,437,264 (offset by an increase in value of $14,880 due to the vesting of certain employee stock options) due to a decline in the price of the Company’s common stock from $1.11 at December 29, 2006 to $0.95 at March 30, 2007.

On June 21, 2007 the Company's Articles of Incorporation were amended to increase the number of authorized shares to 210 million, consisting of 10 million shares of Preferred Stock and 200 million shares of Common Stock.
 
As of this amendment the Company has sufficient authorized shares available to settle its open stock-based contracts. As a result the Company revalued the accrued liability related to warrants and stock purchase rights to reflect the closing price of $0.78 for the Company’s common stock as of June 21, 2007. The Company recorded a gain of $2,024,269 and $3,446,653 respectively for the three and six months ended June 30, 2007. In addition as of June 21, 2007 the Company reclassified the remaining liability of $4,834,720 as Common Stock.

Net other income for the three months ended June 30, 2007 was $2,051,803 compared to a loss of $(752,108) in the three months ended June 30, 2006. This change was primarily due to a reduction in the Accrued Liability Related to Warrants and Stock Purchase Rights.
 
PROFITABILITY/LOSS
 
Net income for the three months ended June 30, 2007 was $1,472,466 compared to a net loss of $681,027 for the three months ended June 30, 2006.

The increase in net income was due to the reduction in the value of the accrued liability  related to warrants and stock purchase rights during the three months ended June 30, 2007 compared to an increase in the liability during the three months ended June 30, 2006.

SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2007 COMPARED TO THE SIX MONTHS ENDED JUNE 30, 2006
 
GROSS TRAVEL BOOKINGS

26


Gross travel bookings for the six months ended June 30, 2007 increased to $45,605,000 compared to $33,056,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2006. As described below, the Company received $4,723,029 and $4,736,251 of revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2007, and June 30, 2006, from such bookings.


REVENUE

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2007 were $4,723,029 compared to $4,736,251 for the six months ended June 30, 2006. While gross travel bookings increased, this was offset by the fact that the Company took a reserve against revenues of 15% in the six months ended June 30, 2007, while no reserve was taken in the six months ended June 30, 2006. The Company now recognizes override revenues only upon receipt or confirmation of entitlement from the travel supplier. As a result, during the six months ended June 30, 2007 the Company recognized $66,718 in override revenue, compared with $374,659 during the six months ended June 30, 2006.

See the discussion of reserves in Note 2 to the Financial Statements.

SELLING AND MARKETING

Selling and marketing expenses relate to direct advertising and distribution expense, including traffic generation from Internet, search engines, private label and affiliate programs. The remainder of the expense relates to personnel costs, including staffing in our Agent Support Services and Preferred Supplier Relations to enhance supplier commission levels.

Marketing and sales expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2007 were $4,040,441 compared to $2,899,948 for the six months ended June 30, 2006. The increase was primarily due to the increased payments to our travel agents as a result of their increased sales levels. Selling and marketing expenses relate to travel agent commissions, direct advertising and distribution expense, including traffic generation from Internet, search engines, private label and affiliate programs.

GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE
 
General and Administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2007 decreased to $1,568,593 from $2,165,378 for six months ended June 30, 2006. The decrease was primarily due to reductions in employee compensation, professional fees, telephone and travel expenses. We expect absolute amounts spent on corporate personnel and professional service to increase over time as we develop new business units requiring additional headcount and continue incurring incremental costs associated with being a public company.

TECHNOLOGY AND CONTENT

Technology and content expense includes product development expenses such as payroll and related expenses and depreciation of technology infrastructure, travel agent intranets, travel agent website, and consumer and social networking site development costs. In 2006, we moved our software development to an India-based operation with our own employees. We currently employ web developers and designers in Kuala Lumpur, Pakistan, India and Spain. We also began outsourcing the development of certain large scale projects to India, including the development of our consumer travel comparison marketplace, VacationCompare.com and our group travel social networking site, Travelstar.com.
 
Technology and content expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2007 were $131,680 compared to $82,923 for the six months June 30, 2006. Given the increasing complexity of our business, geographic expansion, increased supplier integration, service-oriented architecture improvements and other initiatives, we expect absolute amounts spent in technology and content to increase over time. The Company recently hired a Chief Technology Officer.

ACCRUED LIABILITY RELATED TO WARRANTS AND STOCK PURCHASE RIGHTS

The Company accounts for freestanding derivative financial instruments potentially settled in its own common stock under Emerging Issues Task Force ("EITF") Issue No. 00-19, "Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to, and Potentially Settled in, a Company's Own Stock." As the Company potentially did not have, prior to June 21, 2007, sufficient authorized shares available to settle its open stock-based contracts, the initial fair value of the applicable contracts (consisting primarily of non-employee stock warrants and rights to purchase common stock- (see Note 5) has been classified as "accrued liability related to warrants and stock purchase rights" on the accompanying balance sheet and measured subsequently at fair value (based on a Black-Scholes computation), with gains and losses included in the statement of operations. The accrued liability had a balance of $8,281,373 at December 31, 2006.

The value of the liability will vary based on the price of the Company’s common stock. During the three months ended March 31, 2007 the Company recorded a reduction in the value of the liability of $1,437,264 (offset by an increase in value of $14,880 due to the vesting of certain employee stock options) due to a decline in the price of the Company’s common stock from $1.11 at December 29, 2006 to $0.95 at March 30, 2007.

On June 21, 2007 the Company's Articles of Incorporation were amended to increase the number of authorized shares to 210 million, consisting of 10 million shares of Preferred Stock and 200 million shares of Common Stock. As of this amendment the Company has sufficient authorized shares available to settle its open stock-based contracts. As a result the Company revalued the accrued liability related to warrants and stock purchase rights to reflect the closing price of $0.78 for the Company’s common stock as of June 21, 2007. The Company recorded a gain of $2,024,269 and $3,446,653 respectively for the three and six months ended June 30, 2007 compared with losses of $752,108 and $1,692,611 respectively for the three and six months ended June 30, 2006.  In addition as of June 21, 2007 the Company reclassified the remaining liability of $4,834,720 as Common Stock.

Net other income for the six months ended June 30, 2007 was $3,492,810 compared to an expense of $(1,692,611) in the six months ended June 30, 2006. This change was primarily due to a reduction in the Accrued Liability Related to Warrants and Stock Purchase Rights.
 
PROFITABILITY/LOSS

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2007 was $2,475,125 compared to a net loss of $2,104,609 for the six months ended June 30, 2006.

The increase in net income was due to the reduction in  the provision of the accrued liability of related to warrants and stock purchase rights in the six months ended June 30, 2007. The Company's operating loss for the six months ended June 30, 2007 was $1,017,685 compared to an operating loss of $411,998 for the six months ended June 30, 2006.

Our business continues to be dominated by complex leisure travel. Commission revenue for these types of bookings is paid to the company by travel suppliers, typically upon completion of the travel. Because the average time lag between booking travel and receiving the commission is approximately six months, we determined it prudent to recognize a reserve against revenues for the possibility of cancellations or other factors. Therefore, we recognized a reserve equal to 15% of the gross commissions generated for the six months ended June 30, 2007. The Company will be monitoring receivables and adjusting the reserve levels on a regular basis, as required.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

The Company's cash balance increased to $2,389,257 at June 30, 2007 as compared to $2,246,929 at December 31, 2006. The Company has funded certain expenses by issuing shares for compensation and services. During the six months ended June 30, 2007 the Company issued $222,294 in shares for services. Typically there is approximately a six to nine month lag between when the Company’s travel agents make a sale and when the commission on this sale is paid by the supplier. This results in an increase in Accounts Receivable as the Company’s sales grow.  During the six months ended June 30, 2007 Accounts Receivable increased by $690,891 as a result of the growth of the Company’s sales. Offsetting this increased use of cash, the Company’s Accounts Payable to its travel agents and other vendors increased by $1,183,981. During the six months ended June 30, 2006 the Company invested $170,505 in Property, Plant and Equipment, primarily consisting of computer equipment and the capitalization of certain software development associated with new internet sites that the Company was preparing to launch. This compares with $71,717 invested in Property, Plant and Equipment during the six months ended June 30, 2006.

GENERAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE
 
General and Administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2006 increased to $4,119,326 from $3,687,826 for the year ended December 31, 2005. The increase was primarily due to $267,936 in option expense associated with the adoption of FAS 123R. We expect absolute amounts spent on corporate personnel and professional service to increase over time as we develop new business units requiring additional headcount and continue incurring incremental costs associated with being a public company.
 
TECHNOLOGY AND CONTENT
 
Technology and content expense includes product development expenses such as payroll and related expenses and depreciation of technology infrastructure, travel agent intranets, travel agent website, and consumer and social networking site development costs.

Technology and content expenses for the year ended December 31, 2006 were $198,621. Given the increasing complexity of our business, geographic expansion, increased supplier integration, service-oriented architecture improvements and other initiatives, we expect absolute amounts spent in technology and content to increase over time.
 
ACCRUED LIABILITY RELATED TO WARRANTS AND STOCK PURCHASE RIGHTS
 
The Company accounts for freestanding derivative financial instruments potentially settled in its own common stock under Emerging Issues Task Force ("EITF") Issue No. 00-19, "Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to, and Potentially Settled in, a Company's Own Stock." As the Company potentially did not have, as of December 31, 2006, sufficient authorized shares available to settle its open stock-based contracts, the initial fair value of the applicable contracts (consisting primarily of non-employee stock warrants and rights to purchase common stock as well as exercisable employee stock options (see Note 5) has been classified as "accrued liability related to warrants and stock purchase rights" on the accompanying balance sheet and measured subsequently at fair value (based on a Black-Scholes computation), with gains and losses included in the statement of operations. The factors used for the year ended December 31, 2006 were the option exercise price of $0.50 to $1.15 per share, a 2 year life of the options, volatility measure of 85%, a dividend rate of 0% and a risk free interest rate ranging from 4.28% to 4.95% for 2006. The accrued liability has a balance of $8,281,373 at December 31, 2006.
 
Net other income for the year ended December 31, 2006 was $5,312 compared to an expense of $9,641 in the year ended December 31, 2005. This change was primarily due to the elimination of interest expense as the loans from two officers were repaid.
 
The Company left development stage as of January 1, 2005 when it started to make substantially more sales.
 
PROFITABILITY/LOSS
 
Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2006 was $11,128,689 compared to a net loss of $3,885,479 for the year ended December 31, 2005.

During the year ended December 31, 2005 both of the above loans and accrued interest, totaling $375,000 were converted to 1,071,450 shares of common stock. The conversion price of $0.35 per share was based on the same terms of a private placement sold to institutional and accredited investors.
 
SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT
 
The following table sets forth information regarding the beneficial ownership of our common stock as of October 22, 2007 by:
 
o each person known by us to be the beneficial owner of more than 5% of our Common Stock;
 
o each of our directors; o each of our executive officers; and
 
o our executive officers and directors as a group.
 
Beneficial ownership is determined in accordance with the rules of the SEC and includes voting and investment power. Under SEC rules, a person is deemed to be the beneficial owner of securities which may be acquired by such person upon the exercise of options and warrants or the conversion of convertible securities within 60 days from the date on which beneficial ownership is to be determined. Each beneficial owner's percentage ownership is determined by dividing the number of shares beneficially owned by that person by the base number of outstanding shares, increased to reflect the beneficially-owned shares underlying options, warrants or other convertible securities included in that person's holdings, but not those underlying shares held by any other person.
 
Unless indicated otherwise, the address for each person named is c/o Travelstar, Inc., 95 Argonaut St., First Floor, Aliso Viejo, CA 92656.

DISCLOSURE OF COMMISSION'S POSITION ON INDEMNIFICATION FOR
SECURITIES ACT LIABILITIES
 
Section 204 of the California General Corporation Law permits a corporation to include in its Articles of Incorporation provisions eliminating or limiting the personal liability of directors for monetary damages in an action brought by or in the right of the corporation for breach of a director's fiduciary duties, subject to certain limitations. Section 317 of the California General Corporation Law requires a corporation to indemnify its directors and other agents to the extent they incur expenses in successfully defending lawsuits brought against them by reason of their status as directors or agents. Section 317 also permits a corporation to indemnify its directors and other agents to a greater extent than specifically required by law.
 
Our Articles of Incorporation, as amended, eliminate the personal liability of directors of the Company for monetary damages to the fullest extent permissible under California law. Our Bylaws require that the Company, to the maximum extent permitted by California law, indemnify each of its agents against expenses, judgments, fines, settlements and other amounts actually and reasonably incurred in connection with any proceeding arising by reason of the fact such person is or was an agent of Travelstar. The term "agent" includes any person who (i) is or was a director, officer, employee or other agent of Travelstar; (ii) is or was serving at the request of Travelstar, as a director, officer, employee or agent of another business entity; or (iii) was a director, officer, employee or agent of a corporation which was a predecessor corporation of Travelstar or of another enterprise at the request of such predecessor corporation.
 
The effect of these provisions in our Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws is to eliminate our ability and that of our shareholders (through shareholder derivative suits) to recover monetary damages against a director except as limited by California law. These provisions do not limit or eliminate the rights of Travelstar or those of any shareholder to seek non-monetary relief. In any proceeding arising by reason of the fact a person is or was an agent of Travelstar, the agent will be indemnified if he or she acted in good faith and in a manner the person reasonably believed to be in the best interests of the corporation and, in the case of a criminal proceeding, had no reasonable cause to believe the conduct of the person was unlawful. There can be no indemnification with respect to any matter as to which the agent is adjudged to be liable to Travelstar, unless and only to the extent that the court in which such proceeding was brought determines upon application that, in view of all of the circumstances of the case, the agent is fairly and reasonably entitled to indemnity for expenses as the court shall deem proper.
 
Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers or persons controlling Travelstar pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, we have been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission, such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Act and is, therefore, unenforceable.
 
LEGAL MATTERS
 
The validity of the common stock has been passed upon by Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference LLP, New York, New York.
