NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements of Crown Equity Holdings Inc. (“Crown Equity”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto contained in Crown Equity’s December 31, 2012 Annual Report filed with the SEC on Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of financial position and the results of operations for the interim periods presented have been reflected herein. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. Notes to the financial statements which would substantially duplicate the disclosure contained in the audited financial statements for the most recent fiscal year end December 31, 2012 as reported on Form 10-K, have been omitted. Certain prior period amounts have been reclassified to conform to current period presentation.

NOTE 2 – GOING CONCERN

As shown in the accompanying financial statements, Crown Equity has an accumulated deficit of $8,968,343 and a working capital deficit of $156,680 as of June 30, 2013. Unless profitability and increase in shareholders’ equity continues, these conditions raise substantial doubt as to Crown Equity's ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if Crown Equity is unable to continue as a going concern.

Crown Equity continues to review its expense structure reviewing costs and their reduction to move towards profitability. The Company’s expenses are planned to decrease as a percent of revenue resulting in profitability and increased shareholders’ equity.

NOTE 3 – CHANGE IN ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLE AND CORRECTION OF PRIOR YEAR INFORMATION

Change in Accounting Principle

During 2012, the Company changed its policy for accounting for its investment in Cleantech Transit, Inc., a related party, common stock. During the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company accounted for this investment as an available-for-sale security. In 2012, the Company’s ownership percentage increased to more than 20%. The Company changed its accounting policy in accordance with ASC 323 Investments—Equity Method and Joint Ventures. The consolidated financial statements presented herein have been retroactively restated to reflect the change in accounting principle.

Correction of Prior Year Information

During the six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company identified an error in the valuation of the common stock of Cleantech Transit, Inc., a related party, received for services provided. It was determined that the deferred revenue as of December 31, 2011 should have been written-off against the carrying value of the equity method investment in related party during the six months ended June 30, 2012. Also, it was determined that the carrying value of the equity method investment as of June 30, 2012 was impaired. This resulted in an adjustment to the previously reported amounts in the consolidated financial statements for the six months ended June 30, 2012. In accordance with the SEC's Staff Accounting Bulletin Nos. 99 and 108 (SAB 99 and SAB 108), the Company evaluated this error and, based on an analysis of quantitative and qualitative factors, determined that the error was immaterial to the prior reporting period affected. However, if the adjustments to correct the cumulative effect of the above error had been recorded in the six months ended June 30, 2013, the Company believes the impact would have been significant and would impact comparisons to prior periods. Therefore, as permitted by SAB 108, the Company corrected, in the current filing, previously reported results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012.

The following table presents the comparative effect of the change in accounting principle and the effect of the correction of prior year information and their impact on the Company’s consolidated statements of operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012:

NOTE 4 – MARKETABLE SECURITIES

Marketable securities are classified as available-for-sale and are presented in the consolidated balance sheet at fair market value.

Per Accounting Standards Codification 820 “Fair Value Measurement”, fair values defined establishes a framework for measuring fair value under generally accepted accounting principles and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. ASC 820 does not require any new fair value measurements.

ASC 820 establishes a valuation hierarchy for disclosure of the inputs to valuation used to measure fair value. This hierarchy prioritizes the inputs into three broad levels as follows:

Level 1: Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
Level 2: Observable market based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data
Level 3: Unobservable inputs that are not corroborated by market data

Crown Equity has classified these marketable securities at level 1 with a fair value of $87,750 and $105,000 as of June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively.

Per Accounting Standards Codification 825 “The Fair Value Option for Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities—Including an Amendment of FASB Statement No. 115”, an entity is permitted to irrevocably elect fair value on a contract-by-contract basis for new assets or liabilities within the scope of ASC 825 as the initial and subsequent measurement attribute for those financial assets and liabilities and certain other items including property and casualty insurance contracts. Entities electing the fair value option are required to (i) recognize changes in fair value in earnings and (ii) expense any up-front costs and fees associated with the item for which the fair value option is elected. Entities electing the fair value option are required to distinguish, on the face of the statement of financial position, the fair value of assets and liabilities for which it has elected the fair value option, and similar assets and liabilities measured using another measurement attribute. An entity can accomplish this either by reporting the fair value and non-fair-value carrying amounts as separate line items or by aggregating those amounts and disclosing parenthetically the amount of fair value included in the aggregate amount. Crown Equity adopted ASC 825 during the third quarter of fiscal 2009 and elected the fair value option for their marketable securities.

NOTE 5 – EQUITY METHOD INVESTMENT IN RELATED PARTY

The Company’s ownership percentage in Cleantech Transit, Inc. was 44.17% and 42.53% as of June 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, respectively. During late 2012, the Company’s ownership percentage exceeded 20% and the Company began accounting for this investment under the equity method. It was accounted for as an available-for-sale investment during the six months ended June 30, 2012. The consolidated financial statements for the six months ended June 30, 2012 presented herein have been retroactively restated to reflect the change in accounting principal.

Cleantech has had no revenues since inception. Enterprise valuation was used to value this inactive entity and the equity method is used for ongoing reporting.

OVERVIEW

Crown Equity Holdings Inc. (”Crown Equity”) was incorporated in August 1995 in Nevada. The Company is offering its services to companies seeking to become public entities in the United States. It has launched a website, www.crownequityholdings.com, which offers its services in a wide range of fields. The Company provides various consulting services to companies and individuals dealing with corporate structure and operations globally. The Company also provides public relations and news dissemination for publicly and privately held companies.

In December, 2010, the Company formed two wholly owned subsidiaries Crown Tele Services, Inc. and Crown Direct, Inc. Crown Tele Services, Inc. was formed to provide voice over internet (“VoIP”) services to clients at a competitive price and Crown Direct, Inc. was formed to provide direct sales to customers. Both entities had minimum sales during the quarter.

In March, 2011, the Company formed a wholly owned subsidiary CRWE Real Estate, Inc. as a subsidiary to engage in potential real estate holdings. The entity had minimal activity during the quarter.

The Company has focused its primary vision to using its network of websites to provide advertising and marketing services, as a worldwide online media advertising publisher, dedicated to the distribution of quality branding information. The Company offers Internet media-driven advertising services, which cover and connect a wide range of marketing specialties, as well as search engine optimization for clients interested in online media awareness. As part of its operations, the Company has utilized the services of software and hardware technicians in developing its websites and adding additional websites. This allows the Company to disseminate news and press releases for its customers as well as general news and financial information on a much bigger scale than it did previously. The Company markets its services to companies seeking market awareness of them and the services or goods that they offer. The Company then publishes information concerning these companies on its many websites. The Company is paid in cash and/or stock of the customer companies. The Company has numerous consulting and service customers and is therefore not dependent on any particular customer for a majority of its revenue.

Crown Equity’s office is located at 11226 Pentland Down Road, Las Vegas, NV 89146.

As of June 30, 2013, Crown Equity had no employees and was utilizing the services of one independent contractor and consultant.

Our existing capital may not be sufficient to meet Crown Equity's cash needs, including the costs of compliance with the continuing reporting requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. This condition raises substantial doubt as to Crown Equity's ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if Crown Equity is unable to continue as a going concern.

EMPLOYEES

As of June 30, 2013, Crown Equity had no employees.

ITEM 3: CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

As a “smaller reporting company” as defined by Item 10 of Regulation S-K, Crown Equity is not required to provide information required under this Item.

ITEM 4T: CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
(a)  Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
Based on their evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures(as defined in Rule 13a-15e under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 the "Exchange Act"), our principal executive officer and principal financial officer have concluded that as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q such disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms because of the identification of a material weakness in our internal control over financial reporting which we view as an integral part of our disclosure controls and procedures. The material weakness relates to the lack of segregation of duties in financial reporting, as our financial reporting and all accounting functions are performed by an external consultant with no oversight by a professional with accounting expertise. Our CEO and CFO do not possess accounting expertise and our company does not have an audit committee. This weakness is due to the company’s lack of working capital to hire additional staff. To remedy this material weakness, we intend to engage another accountant to assist with financial reporting as soon as our finances will allow.
 
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting
 
Except as noted above, there have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Exchange Act Rules 13a-15 or 15d-15 that occurred during our first quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
