FOCUS GOLD CORPORATION

(An exploration stage company)

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

For the three and nine month periods ended November 30, 2012 and 2011

 

 

 

1.Organization and Description of Business

 

Focus Gold Corporation (the "Company") was incorporated on December 23, 2005 under the laws of the state of Nevada under the name Real Estate Referral Center Inc. On April 21, 2009, the Company changed its name to Gold Bag, Inc. and effective June 6, 2011 to Focus Gold Corporation. In October 2010 the Company entered into an option agreement with Victoria Gold Inc. for the right to explore and purchase mineral claims located in Ontario Canada and since that time the Company’s principal business has been the acquisition and exploration of mineral resources. The Company is considered an exploration stage company and its financial statements are presented in a manner similar to a development stage company as defined in FASC 915-10-05, and interpreted by the Securities and Exchange Commission for mining companies in Industry Guide 7.

 

On December 31, 2010, the Company acquired 100% ownership of Fairfields Gold S.A. de CV, a Mexican corporation involved in the exploration and expansion of its mineral properties. On October 25, 2011, through its wholly owned subsidiary Focus Celtic Gold Corporation (“Celtic”) the Company completed on the acquisition of 98.65% ownership of Metallum Resources Plc. (“Metallum”), an England &Wales corporation which is involved in the exploration and expansion of its mineral properties. Subsequent to the acquisition, the Company exchanged shares of Celtic for settlement of accounts payable reducing the Company’s equity stake in Celtic to 92.16%. On October 5, 2012, the Company disposed its 92.16% interest in Celtic. The associated assets and liabilities of Celtic and Metallum have been classified as discontinued operations at February 29, 2012. The associated assets and liabilities of Celtic and Metallum Resources Plc. thereafter have been reflected in discontinued operations.

 

The prior period results of continuing operations of Celtic have been reclassified to profit (loss) from discontinued operations and the prior year amounts have been reclassified to present the Company's operations as discontinued operations in the condensed consolidated statements of operations for all periods presented herein.

 

The Company has not presently determined whether its properties in Mexico contain mineral reserves that are economically recoverable.

All significant intercompany accounts and transactions are eliminated in consolidation.

 

2.Significant accounting policies

 

This summary of significant accounting policies of the Company is presented to assist in understanding the Company’s financial statements. This condensed summary should be read in conjunction with the disclosure of accounting policies in the Company’s audited financial statements for the year ended February 29, 2012.

 

(a)Mineral Properties, Leases and Exploration and Development Costs

 

The Company accounts for mineral properties in accordance with ASC 930: Extractive Activities-Mining. Costs of acquiring mineral properties and leases are capitalized by project area upon purchase of the associated claims (see Note 5). Mineral properties are periodically assessed for impairment of value and any diminution in value.

 

The Company accounts for mineral exploration and development costs in accordance with ASC 932: Extractive Activities.  All exploration expenditures are expensed as incurred, previously capitalized costs are expensed in the

period the property is abandoned.  Expenditures to develop new mines, to define further mineralization in existing ore bodies, and to expand the capacity of operating mines, are capitalized and amortized on units of production basis over proven and probable reserves.


Any option payments received by the Company from third parties or tax credits refunded to the Company are credited to the capitalized cost of the mineral property or to exploration costs as applicable. If payments received exceed the capitalized cost of the mineral property or the exploration costs incurred, the excess is recognized as income in the year received.

FOCUS GOLD CORPORATION

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

For the three and nine month periods ended November 30, 2012 and 2011

 

 

 

The amounts shown for mineral properties do not necessarily represent present or future values. Their recoverability is dependent upon the discovery of economically recoverable reserves, the ability of the Company to obtain the necessary financing to complete the development, and future profitable production or proceeds from the disposition thereof.

 

(b)Derivative instruments

 

Derivative instruments consist of common stock warrants and certain instruments embedded in certain notes payable and related agreements. These financial instruments are recorded in the balance sheets at fair value as liabilities. Changes in fair value are recognized in earnings in the period of change.

 

(c)Impairment of long-lived assets

 

The Company reviews and evaluates its long-lived assets for impairment at each balance sheet date and documents such impairment testing. The tests include an evaluation of the assets and events or changes in circumstances that would indicate that the related carrying amounts may not be recoverable. Mineral properties in the exploration stage are monitored for impairment based on factors such as the Company's continued right to explore the area, exploration reports, assays, technical reports, drill results and the Company's continued plans to fund exploration programs on the property, whether sufficient work has been performed to indicate that the carrying amount of the mineral property cost carried forward as an asset will not be fully recovered, even though a viable mine has been discovered.

 

The tests for long-lived assets in the exploration, development or producing stage that would have a value beyond proven and probable reserves would be monitored for impairment based on factors such as current market value of the mineral property and results of exploration, future asset utilization, business climate, mineral prices and future undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use of the related assets. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to the estimated future net undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by the asset, including evaluating its reserves beyond proven and probable amounts.

 

The Company's policy is to record an impairment loss in the period when it is determined that the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable either by impairment or by abandonment of the property. The impairment loss is calculated as the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds its fair value. While the Company incurred losses from operations, these losses have not been in excess of planned expenditures on the specific mineral properties in order to ultimately realize their value.

 

During the nine months ended November 30, 2012, the Company recorded an impairment charge on its Metallum properties and Watabeag & Russell claims (Notes 3 and 5(b)).

 

(d)Stock-based compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock based compensation to employees as required by ASC718: Compensation-Stock Compensation and stock based compensation to nonemployees as required by ASC505-50: Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees.  Options and warrants are valued using the Black-Scholes pricing model (See Note 7). The offset to the recorded stock based compensation cost is to additional paid-in capital. Consideration received on the exercise of stock options is recorded as share capital and additional paid-in capital and the related additional paid-in capital is transferred to share capital.

Notes to Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements

For the three and nine month periods ended November 30, 2012 and 2011

 

 

 

(e)Warrants

 

The Company accounts for warrants issued in conjunction with stock issuances under private placement using the fair value method. Under this method, the value of warrants issued is measured at fair value at the grant date using the Black-Scholes valuation model and recorded as share capital and additional paid-in capital.

 

The Company recognized the value of detachable warrants issued in conjunction with issuance of the convertible debenture using the Black-Scholes pricing model. The Company recorded the relative fair value of the warrant as an increase to additional paid-in capital and discount against the related debt. The discount attributed to the value of the warrants is being amortized over the term of the underlying debt instrument.

 

(f)Recent accounting pronouncements

 

In May 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-04 (ASU No. 2011-04) “Fair Value Measurement” (Topic 820): Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs. As a result of the new guidance, U.S. GAAP and the IFRSs have the same definition and meaning of fair value and the same substantive disclosure requirements about fair value measurements (with minor differences in wording and style). ASU No. 2011-04 amends Topic 820 in two ways. Specifically, some of the amendments clarify how to apply the existing fair value measurement and disclosure requirements, while some of the amendments change a particular principle or requirement for measuring fair value or disclosing information about fair value measurements. ASU No. 2011-04 and IFRS 13 do not extend the use of fair value accounting, but rather provide guidance on how it should be applied where its use is already required or permitted by other standards within U.S. GAAP or the IFRS. ASU No. 2011-04 supersedes much of the guidance in ASC Topic 820, but also clarifies existing guidance and changes certain wording in order to align ASC Topic 820 with IFRS 13. IFRS 13 provides, for the first time, a precise definition of fair value and a single source of fair value measurement requirements, disclosure requirements, and related guidance for use across the IFRSs. The Company’s adoption of this policy did not have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

 

In June 2011, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No 2011-05 (ASU No 2011-05), Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income”. ASU 2011-05 eliminates the option that permits the presentation of other comprehensive income in the statement of changes in equity and requires presenting components of net income and comprehensive income in either a one-statement approach with totals for both net income and comprehensive income, or a two-statement approach where a statement presenting the components of net income and total net income must be immediately followed by a financial statement that presents the components of other comprehensive income, a total for other comprehensive income, and a total for comprehensive income. The guidance provided in ASU No. 2011-05 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011 and should be applied retrospectively. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

In September 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-08, which updates the guidance in ASC Topic 350,Intangibles – Goodwill& Other” (ASU-2011-08). The amendments in ASU 2011-08 permit an entity to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than the carrying amount as a basis for determining whether it is necessary to perform the two-step goodwill impairment test described in ASC Topic 350. The more-likely-than-not threshold is defined as having a likelihood of more than 50 percent. If, after assessing the totality of events or circumstances, an entity determines that it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, then performing the two-step impairment test is unnecessary. The amendments in ASU 2011-08 include examples of events and circumstances that an entity should consider in evaluating whether it is more likely than not that the fair value of a reporting unit is less than its carrying amount, however the examples are not intended to be all-inclusive and an entity my identify other relevant events and circumstances to consider in making the determination. The examples in this ASU 2011-08 supersede the previous examples under ASC Topic 350 of events and circumstances an entity should consider in determining whether it should test for impairment between annual tests, and also supersede the examples of events and circumstances that an entity having a reporting unit with a zero or negative should consider in determining whether to perform the second step of the impairment test. Under the amendments in ASU 2011-08, an entity is no longer permitted to carry forward its detailed calculation of a reporting unit's fair value from a prior year as previously permitted under ASC Topic 350. ASU 2011-08 is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011. The adoption of ASU 2011-08 did not expected to have a material impact on the Company's financial position or results of operations.

In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011- 12, “Comprehensive Income – Deferral of the Effective Date for Amendments to the Presentation of Reclassifications of Items Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income in Accounting Standards Update No. 2011-05” (“ASU 2011-12”). ASU 2011-12 defers changes in Update 2011-05 that relate to the presentation of reclassification adjustments. ASU 2011-12 is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011 (November 30, 2012 for the Company). The adoption of ASU 2011-12 did not have a material impact on our results of operations, financial condition, or cash flows.

 

The Company has implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect. These pronouncements did not have any material impact on the financial statements unless otherwise disclosed, and the Company does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

 

(g)Going concern

 

The Company's financial statements are prepared using the accrual method of accounting in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, and have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the settlement of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company incurred a net loss of $5,393,656 during the nine month period ended November 30, 2012, and has an accumulated deficit of $11,947,800 since entry into the exploration stage. Additionally, the Company is in default of various notes with principal amounts aggregating $765,556. The Company changed its principal business to the development and exploitation of mineral properties in October 2010, but has not yet established an ongoing source of revenues sufficient to cover its operating costs and to allow it to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company obtaining adequate capital to fund operating losses until it becomes profitable. If the Company is unable to obtain adequate capital, it could be forced to cease development of operations.

 

In order to continue as a going concern, develop a reliable source of revenues, and achieve a profitable level of operations the Company will need, among other things, additional capital resources. Management’s plans to continue as a going concern include raising additional capital through sales of common stock and or a debt financing. However, management cannot provide any assurances that the Company will be successful in accomplishing any of its plans.

 

The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to successfully accomplish the plans described in the preceding paragraph and eventually secure other sources of financing and attain profitable operations. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern. 

 

(h)Fair value measurements.

 

The FASB’s Accounting Standards Codification defines fair value as the amount that would be received for selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants and requires that assets and liabilities carried at fair value are classified and disclosed in the following three categories:

 

Level 1 – Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.

 

Level 2 – Quoted prices for similar instruments in active or inactive markets and valuations derived from models where all significant inputs are observable in active markets.

 

Level 3 – Valuations derived from valuation techniques in which one or more significant inputs are unobservable in any market.

Given the conditions surrounding the trading of the Company’s equity securities, the Company values its derivative instruments related to embedded conversion features and warrants from the issuance of convertible debentures in accordance with the Level 3 guidelines. For the nine months period ended November 30, 2012, the following table reconciles the beginning and ending balances for financial instruments that are recognized at fair value in these condensed consolidated financial statements. The fair value of warrants and embedded conversion features that have exercise reset features are estimated using an adjusted Black-Scholes model based on the Company’s estimation of the likelihood of the occurrence of a reset.

 

   Balance at February 29, 2012   New Issuances   Changes in Fair Values   Balance at November 30, 2012 
Level 3 –                    
Derivative liabilities from:                    
Conversion features  $   $1,613,847   $(1,112,041)  $501,806 
Warrants       418,531    (182,070)   236,461 
   $   $2,032,378   $(1,294,111)  $738,267 

 

Changes in the unobservable input values would likely cause material changes in the fair value of the Company’s Level 3 financial instruments. The significant unobservable input used in the fair value measurement is the estimation of the likelihood of the occurrence of a change to the contractual terms of the financial instruments. A significant increase (decrease) in this likelihood would result in a higher (lower) fair value measurement.

 

(a)Reclassification.

 

Certain amounts in the balance sheet of February 29, 2012 and statement of operations for the three and nine months ended November 30, 2011 have been reclassified to conform with the current year’s presentation.

 

All references to common shares of the Company have been adjusted to give effect to the implementation of a 20:1 reverse split of the Company’s authorized and issued common stock which was effected in the subsequent events period on January 14, 2013.

 

3.Discontinued Operations

 

On October 5, 2012 the Company entered an agreement with European Resource Capital Inc. for the sale of the Company’s 24,420,000 shares of common stock of Celtic (92.16% interest), 64,987,982 Metallum options providing the acquirer with the option to acquire an additional 64,987,982 common shares of Metallum for £0.10 per share through December 31, 2012 and amounts receivable from Celtic of approximately $217,031 in exchange for $2,500,000 (Canadian) (approximately $2,553,778 at exchange rates at the date of this transaction).

(b)Watabeag & Russell Creek Claims – Ontario, Canada (terminated November 27, 2012)

 

On October 1, 2010 the Company and Victoria Gold Corp. entered into an option agreement covering 16 gold mining claims in the Province of Ontario.  Under the option agreement, the Company has the right to acquire Victoria Gold Corp.’s ownership interest in eight (8) mining claims located in Currie Township, Timmins Mining District, Ontario known as the Watabeag property and eight (8) mining claims located in Bowman Township, Timmins Mining District, Ontario known as the Russell Creek property.

 

The Watabeag property comprises a total of 131 hectares and is located approximately 60km east of Timmins, Ontario. Exploration on the property began in 1973 with additional drilling in the 80’s. Four overburden holes were drilled in 1980 to follow up anomalous gold values. An additional 11 overburden holes were completed in 1981 to define two anomalies with well-defined head and tail features. The initial drill hole intersected mixed dacite and feldspar with a brecciated and altered zone assaying 8.9g/t Au across a 0.9m interval.

 

The Russell Creek property is a total of 128 hectares and is located approximately 70 kilometers east of Timmins. Minor exploration for gold commenced in 1980 when Asarco (Cook Joint Venture) completed ground magnetic and EM surveys in the area of two weak airborne EM conductors. The surveys defined a north west trending fault structure along Russell Creek.

 

On November 27, 2012, the Company reached agreement with Victoria Gold Corp. to terminate the option agreement without liability or obligation by the Company. The Company has accordingly expensed the $50,000 carrying value of the Watabeag & Russell to impairment of mineral properties in the condensed consolidated statement of operations for the three and nine month periods ended November 30, 2012.

 

As at November 27, 2012, the Company had not commenced exploration activities on these properties.

 

(c)San Nicholas & Santa Fe - Mexico

 

On February 11, 2011, the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Fairfields entered into an agreement, with the owner of the Santa Fe and San Nicholas mineral claims to acquire an 80% interest in such claims for no cost. The Santa Fe property strategically extends the Company's historic Miravalles Vein. The San Nicolas property includes the caldera border that lies adjacent to the Huicicila property. The properties have a collective surface area of 220 hectares and are being evaluated with the work programs undertaken for the Huicicila Claims.

 

(d)Focus 1 to 3 - Mexico

 

During the year ended February 28, 2011, the Company, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Fairfields, staked and applied for additional mineral claims for property contiguous with its Huicicila and San Nicholas and Santa Fe Claims The properties have a surface area of 18,289.05 hectares for the Focus 1 claims, 10,850 hectares for the Focus 2 claims and 2,367.78 hectares for the Focus 3 claims. The Company has conducted limited geological work on these claims.

 

(e)Metallum properties - United Kingdom and Ireland (disposed of October 5, 2012)

 

The Company has disposed of the Metallum properties as at October 5, 2012 with its sale of its 92.16% interest in Celtic (see Note 3, “Discontinued Operations”). Includes thirty one exploration licenses in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Ireland covering in excess of 388,000 hectares owned by Metallum, Celtic’s 98.65% owned subsidiary. The licenses cover areas of known mineral occurrences and geochemical anomalies in terrain that is geologically prospective for a number of deposit types for a variety of metals.

 

During the quarter ended August 31, 2012, certain of the licenses held by Metallum had expired and management has determined that there is a material doubt about the renewal or re-acquisition of such licenses and were written down to their fair value of $3,300,159, resulting in an impairment charge of $2,841,879 which was included in the loss from operations of the discontinued entity for the period. As at February 29, 2012 the carrying value of the Metallum properties of $6,142,038 was included in assets in discontinued operations on the balance sheet. In the quarter ended November 30, 2012 the Metallum properties have been removed from the Company’s mineral property rights on the balance sheet with the sale of Celtic.

European Resource Capital Inc. issued the Company an eight percent (8%) 5 year $2,500,000 (Canadian) promissory note payable that is secured by the 24,420,000 shares of Celtic common stock. The sales agreement acknowledges that JMJ Financial has an unperfected lien against 25% of the purchased shares. Where the Company is unsuccessful in removing JMJ Financials’ unperfected lien, European Resource Capital may settle such lien and reduce the $2,500,000 (Canadian) promissory note by 35% of its present value.

 

7.Notes payable

 

In July 2011, the Company entered into a Demand Promissory Note (the “Note”) with a private investor as the lender with the principal amount of $200,000. The Note is payable on demand by the lender after August 30, 2011 and accrues interest at the rate of 2% per month calculated and compounded monthly until maturity. A commitment, arrangement and placement fee of $59,000 is payable at maturity. The commitment, arrangement and placement fee of $59,000 was initially recorded as a discount to the Note. The Note has a provision that if not repaid upon demand within 3 days, the lender may elect to receive as full repayment for the loan in restricted common stock of the Company at the rate of five times the principal divided by the 10 day average closing price of the Company’s common stock prior to the date of demand. On March 1, 2012, the Company finalized a settlement agreement with the lender for an amount of $400,000 as full and complete satisfaction of principal, interest, commitment arrangement, placement fees and any other right of the lender under the Note. On March 29, 2012, the Company reached a settlement agreement on its Note, to settle the amount owing at $400,000. The Note was further amended to remove any provisions that allowed for payment of the loan through penalty shares which was replaced with a convertible feature. Under the amendments the Note now bears interest, at the election of the holder at 1%, per month compounded monthly, matures October 1, 2012, and is convertible at any time into shares of the Company’s common stock, at the holder’s option, at a conversion price, equal to 80% of the average of the three lowest trade prices for the Company’s common stock during the 20 trading days prior to the conversion. The holder has agreed to restrict their ability to convert the Note and receive shares of 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 the Company’s common stock. No interest or principal payments are required until the maturity date. Principal and interest may be prepaid prior to maturity. The number of shares reserved for issue under the Note is 300,000 shares of the Company’s common stock. The Company determined that the resulting modifications of the Note was not substantial in accordance with ASC 470-50, “Modifications and Extinguishments”, thus modification accounting was applied. The Note has been determined to have a derivative liability related to its conversion feature with a fair value of $457,552 at March 29, 2012. The fair value of the derivative liability was determined using the Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions: expected life of 0.51 years; volatility of 91.7%; no dividend yield; and a risk free interest rate of 0.14%. The fair value of the derivative liability was recorded as a discount to the debt of $400,000 and $57,552 of interest and financing fees. The discount has been fully amortized to amortization of debt discount over the term of the Note and its conversion to shares of common stock. The unamortized discount and the fair value of the derivative liability at November 30, 2012 was $nil. On November 14, 2012 the Company completed payment of the principal amount of the Note through the conversion of the Note to an aggregate of 1,381,426 shares of the Company’s common stock.

In September 2011, the Company entered into two Demand Promissory Notes (the “Notes”) in the aggregate amount of $270,000. The Notes are due upon demand after November 14, 2011 ($200,000, the “September 14, 2011 Note”) and November 19, 2011 ($70,000, the “September 19, 2011 Note”) and immediately, upon demand, where the Company is in default or non-compliance under the respective note or default or non-compliance with other parties customarily including but not limited to, insolvency, bankruptcy or judgements against the Company. The Notes bear interest at the rate of 2% per month calculated and compounded monthly and a commitment arrangement and placement fee of $67,500 per month (less interest). The Notes requires that the first use of any financing provided to the Company of greater than $200,000 be first used to retire the September 19 Note in whole or in part and greater than $305,000 in the case of the September 14 Note. On June 14 and 19, 2012 the Company entered into a Promissory Note Amending Agreement with the holders of the Notes where by the note holders have agreed to extend the maturity of the September 14, 2011 Note to September 14, 2012 and the September 19, 2011 Note to September 19, 2012 and to settle outstanding commitment, arrangement and placement fees of $554,825 in exchange for 200,000 shares of the Company’s common stock, and eliminate any future commitment, arrangement and placement fees under these promissory notes. On September 14, 2012 and September 19, 2012 the Notes with a principal amount of $270,000 matured without payment and are in default. Under the terms of the Notes as modified, in the event of non-payment by the Company at maturity, the interest rate on the Notes increases to 5% per month and the Company is required to issue 57,500 and 20,000 shares of the Company’s common stock respectively in advance for each month of non-payment of the Notes. The fair value of these penalty shares is included in the note principal at November 30, 2012.

 

On October 25, 2011, the Company issued a 6% convertible redeemable secured note (the “6% Note”) for a principal amount of $100,000. The 6% Note is due and payable October 25, 2012 and accrues interest on the outstanding principal balance at the rate of 6% per annum. The 6% Note is convertible at any time after April 25, 2012, into shares of the Company's common stock at a conversion price that is equal to 70% of the lowest closing bid price of the Company’s common stock as reported on the National Quotations Bureau Pink Sheets on which the Company’s shares are traded, for any of the five trading days including the day upon which a Notice of Conversion is received by the Company. The exercise price may be adjusted to a lower amount where within the three business days after the exercise the closing bid for the Company’s common stock is 5% lower than the price set out in the notice. At any time, the Company has the option to redeem the 6% Note and pay to the note holder 150% of the unpaid principal amount of the 6% Note, in full. As part of the loan, the Company issued to the note holder 333,333 transferable warrants to purchase one common share per warrant at $0.15 per share for a period of three years. The fair value of the 333,333 warrants was $96,372. The fair value of the warrants was calculated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions: expected life of 3.0 years; volatility of 126.9%; no dividend yield; and a risk free interest rate of 0.43%. The relative fair value of the warrants was $49,076 and was recorded as a discount to the debt. The unamortized discount at November 30, 2012 was $nil. The 6% Note and accrued interest of $3,914 were fully paid by August 15, 2012 through the conversion of the 6% Note to an aggregate of 268,763 shares of the Company’s common stock.

 

On February 17, 2012, Celtic entered into a convertible debenture agreement (“Convertible Debenture”) for an amount of $300,000 (Canadian, US$303,183). The Convertible Debenture has a term of 6 months or the earlier of Celtic’s RTO on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Convertible Debenture is secured against the accounts of Celtic, including its accounts, chattel paper, books and records, equipment, instruments, intangibles, inventory, money, proceeds, securities and undertakings and is guaranteed by Celtic and its subsidiaries. The interest rate is 10% accrued daily, compound annually and paid at maturity date. The holder has the right to convert the principal amount outstanding into the common shares of Celtic at the conversion price which is the lower of $0.20 per common share or 25% below the RTO price. As part of the loan, the Company issued to the lender 1,000,000 common share purchase warrants with an exercise price per share equal to the lower of $0.30 (Canadian) and the RTO price for a period of two years and 333,333 common share purchase warrants with an exercise price per common share equal to $0.45 (Canadian) for a period of two years. The relative fair value of the 1,333,333 warrants and the debt at February 17, 2012 was determined to be $120,246 and $182,937 respectively. The fair value of each warrant issued was calculated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions: expected life of 2.33 years; volatility of 90.7%; no dividend yield; and a risk free interest rate of 1.12%. The aggregate relative fair value of the debt and warrant of $303,183 has been amortized to amortization of debt discount over the life of the Convertible Debenture. The Convertible Debenture matured August 17, 2012 without payment to the note holder. The Convertible Debenture is reflected in Liabilities from Discontinued Operations on the balance sheet at February 29, 2012. As at November 30, 2012 the Convertible Debenture has been removed as a liability with the disposition of the Company’s interest in Celtic (see Note 3, Discontinued Operations).

On March 22, 2012 the Company issued a Convertible Promissory Note to JMJ Financial (“JMJ”) in aggregate principal amount of $2,110,000 (the “JMJ Note”) advanced over time. In consideration for issuing of the JMJ Note and the 2,500,000 warrants, JMJ provided the initial funding of $275,000 (total of $356,000 through November 30, 2012). The JMJ Note bears interest at 10%, matures three years from the date of issuance, is secured by 25% of the company’s investment property and ownership or other equity interests the Company holds in Focus Celtic Gold Corporation, its wholly owned subsidiary, and is convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock, at JMJ’s option, at a conversion price, equal to 80% of the average of the three lowest trade prices for the Company’s common stock during the 20 trading days prior to the conversion. The Note was issued with a 10% original issue discount. The original issue discount of $39,556 is being accreted to amortization of debt discount over the remaining term of the note. JMJ has agreed to restrict their ability to convert the JMJ Note and receive shares of 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 the Company’s common stock. No interest or principal payments are required until the maturity date. The Note may be prepaid at any time prior to Maturity Date at 150%. The 125,000 warrants issued to JMJ entitle JMJ to purchase up to 125,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at $4.00 per share, subject to adjustment maintain an aggregate exercise price of $500,000. The 125,000 common share purchase warrants may in certain circumstances be exercised in whole or part in a cashless exercise equal to the difference between the VWAP on the trading day immediately preceding the date on which the holder elects to exercise the warrant and the exercise price of the warrant times the number of warrants so being exercised. The warrant exercise price may be adjusted to a lesser amount than $4.00 where at any time while the warrant is outstanding and the Company sells or grants an option to purchase or sell or grant any right to re-price, or issue and share of common stock or security convertible into the Company’s common stock at an effective price less than the $4.00 exercise price, the exercise price shall be reduced to that lesser amount.

(d)Stock options

 

The Company has an incentive share option plan (the "Plan") that it adopted February 7, 2011, that allows it to grant incentive stock options to its officers, directors, employees and other persons associated with the Company.

Further, the availability and offering of stock options and common stock under the Plan supports and increases the Company's ability to attract and retain individuals of exceptional talent upon whom, in large measure, the sustained progress, growth and profitability of the Company depends. The board of directors reserved 500,000 shares of common stock for issuance under the Plan. As of the fiscal year end, February 29, 2011, the board of directors had granted options to purchase 320,000 shares of common stock at $10 per share to 7 persons.

Promissory Note

 

Warrants

 

  October 24, 2014 & July 19, 2015 Are transferrable and entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share for a period of three years. In lieu of the cash payment the holder has the right to convert this warrant in whole or in part without payment of any kind into that number of shares of common stock of the Company equal to the quotient obtained by dividing the aggregate of the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the day immediately preceding the conversion less the aggregate purchase price of the shares being exercised divided by the closing price of the Company’s common stock on the day immediately preceding the conversion.
     
  March 22, 2012 Transferable with the approval of the Company. At any time after September 22, 2012, in lieu of the cash payment the holder has the right to convert this warrant in whole or in part without payment of any kind into that number of shares of common stock of the Company equal to the quotient obtained by dividing the aggregate of the VWAP price of the Company’s common stock on the day immediately preceding the conversion less the aggregate purchase price of the shares being exercised divided by the VWAP of the Company’s common stock on the day immediately preceding the conversion. The March 22, 2015 warrants provide the warrant holder with down round protection where the Company issues any shares or grants and warrant or convertible security or re-prices a security at less than the effective exercise price of the March 22, 2015 warrant at that time, then the effective exercise price shall be lowered to such lesser amount. As at November 30, 2012, the Company has estimated the re-priced warrant from 125,000 common shares at $4.00 per share to 4,643,388 common shares at $0.1076 per share.

 

During the nine month period ended November 30, 2012, the Company approved unit subscriptions and warrant commissions for an aggregate of nil (2011- 8,332) Class A warrants and nil (2011 – 110,269) Class B warrants as part of a private placement of units.  In addition the Company approved an additional 1964,429 (2011 – 333,333) warrants as part of promissory note financing (see Note 7).

Each Class A Option entitles the holder to purchase one additional common share at $9.80 per share through December 31, 2012. Holders of Class A Options may elect to exercise Class A Options by means of common cashless exercise provision based upon the 20 day volume weighted average price (VWAP) prior to exercise. Holders of Class A Options electing cashless exercise will receive that number of shares equal to (the 20 day VWAP minus $9.80) divided by the 20 day VWAP multiplied by the number of Options held.

9.Commitments and Contingencies

 

(a)On November 10, 2010, the Company signed a definitive agreement to acquire Fairfields Gold S.A. de CV.  Fairfields owns an option to acquire 100% of the Huicicila gold project in Nayarit Mexico.  Under the terms of the definitive agreement, Fairfields selling stockholders have the opportunity to receive additional shares based on performance as per the following schedule:

 

Resource Estimate Date   Indicated Reserves   Payment Obligation
18 months after Closing Date   475,000 oz Au (equivalent)   $1,250,000
24 months after Closing Date   750,000 oz Au (equivalent)   $1,250,000
36 months after Closing Date   1,025,000 oz Au (equivalent)   $1,250,000
48 months after Closing Date   1,300,000 oz Au (equivalent)   $1,250,000

 

Any future payments would be made in shares based on the 20 day average price of the Company’s common stock prior to the required payment date.  

 

In addition, Fairfields shareholders received an option to acquire up to 25% of Focus Gold Mexico Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, created to acquire Fairfields.  The option price payable upon the exercise of the option shall be 25% of the sum of (i) $5,000,000, (ii) the dollar value of all payments made in respect of the deferred payments outlined above as at the date of exercise of the option, and (iii) the dollar value of any shareholders’ equity contributed into Fairfields after December 31, 2010 until the date of exercise of the option. The option may only be exercised for cash.

 

(b)Option on Huicicila mining concession - Mexico

 

On May 19, 2010, prior to its acquisition by the Company, Fairfields, entered into an exploration, exploitation and purchase option agreement with Ramón Farías García, a Mexico City geologist for the mining lots denominated “CILA”, “CILA 1”, “CILA 2”, “CILA 3” “and CILA 5”, located in Compostela, Nayarit Mexico under the following terms:

 

·US$ 100,000 plus applicable VAT, paid on May 24, 2010 (paid).
·US$ 1,200,000 plus applicable VAT, on six semester payment of US$ 200,000 each one, payable on every August and February month from August 17, 2011 (paid) to February 17, 2114.
·The issue to the optionee that number of shares of common stock of Fairfields at the end of the option agreement that is 3% of its issued and outstanding capital at that time.
·A Net Smelter Return Royalty (“NSR”) calculated at a rate of the 2.5% above the concentrate sales, payable every quarter over the life of the mines.

 

This option agreement has an initial maturity of 3 years and 6 months from May 19, 2010. The Company has recorded the fair value of the $1,200,000 of payments under this option in these condensed consolidated financial statements as the discounted value of the cash payments using a rate based on the prevailing market rates of interest available to the Company (the average of interest rates used was estimated to be 11.0%) and $757,361 at November 30, 2012 (after payment of $200,000 in each of August 2011 and February 2012) and $883,135 at November 30, 2011. The carrying amounts of option payment liabilities owing approximates their fair values. The interest is accrued over the estimated payment period of the option payments. The aggregate amount of interest accrued from acquisition through November 30, 2012 was $150,494 (2011 – $76,268).

 

On August 17, 2012, the Company failed to make payment on its Option on Huicicila mining concession – Mexico in the amount of $200,000 and is in breach of its obligations under this Option. The Company has not received notice of default from the optionor and is working with the optionor to address this outstanding option payment.

Item 2. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

 

Focus Gold is an exploration stage issuer focused on the acquisition and development of gold mining properties.

 

The Ontario Rights. - In October 2010, Focus Gold acquired an option on 16 mining claims in the Canadian Province of Ontario from Victoria Gold Corporation. On November 27, 2012, Focus Gold and Victoria Gold Corporation terminated the option agreement.

 

The Mexico Rights. - On December 31, 2010, Focus Gold acquired an option on the Huicicila gold project in Nayarit, Mexico. Subsequently, Focus Gold expanded its holdings of mining claims by acquiring five additional gold and silver mining claims adjacent to the Huicicila gold project in Nayarit, Mexico. Focus Gold’s wholly owned subsidiary, Focus Gold Mexico Limited, owns Fairfields Gold S.A. de C.V. which has an option agreement on the Huicicila gold project in Nayarit, Mexico from Ramon Farias. Focus Gold does not intend to make additional investments in the Mexico Rights and plans to restructure or dispose of the Mexico Rights before the close of the fiscal year ending February 28, 2013.

 

The Celtic Rights. - On October 25, 2011, Focus Gold completed the acquisition of a 98.65% interest in Metallum Resources PLC (“Metallum”). The acquisition gave Focus Gold indirect ownership through Focus Celtic Gold Corporation (“Celtic”) of thirty one exploration licenses in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Ireland covering in excess of 388,000 hectares. On October 5, 2012, Focus Gold entered an agreement with European Resource Capital Inc. (“ERC”) for the sale of 24,420,000 shares of common stock of Focus Celtic Gold Corporation (“Celtic”) (the owner of Metallum) 64,987,982 Metallum options providing the acquirer with the option to acquire an additional 64,987,982 common shares of Metallum for £0.10 per share through December 31, 2012 and amounts receivable from Celtic of $217,031 for $2,553,778 (based upon the CAD to USD exchange rate). ERC issued Focus Gold an eight percent (8%) Two Million Five Hundred Thousand Dollar Promissory Note payable in Canadian Dollars that is secured by the 24,420,000 shares of Celtic common stock.

 

Focus Gold intends to restructure itself and has engaged an outside consultant to identify, review, and assess additional mining properties for purchase.

 

Focus Gold is in the zone of insolvency. Accordingly, Focus Gold must consider the interests of both shareholders and creditors. As Focus Gold strives to repay its debt and secure capital to create revenue in future periods, there will be dilution to existing stockholders caused by the issuance of common stock for cash, services, and in exchange for debt. While management seeks to minimize the dilution to existing stockholders, multiple factors beyond management’s control, such as general economic conditions, the availability of and terms available for debt and equity funding, and the trading price of the Company’s common stock, have a significant impact on this effort. Focus Gold’s effort to restructure its operations and to report positive cash flow and profits is expected to take 12-18 months. Investors are cautioned that these efforts may not be successful.

The results for the nine month period ended November 30, 2012 do not provide a meaningful comparison against the results during the nine month period ended November 30, 2011.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

The selection and application of accounting policies is an important process that has developed as our business activities have evolved and as the accounting rules have changed. Accounting rules generally do not involve a selection among alternatives, but involve an implementation and interpretation of existing rules, and the use of judgment, to the specific set of circumstances existing in our business. Discussed below are the accounting policies that we believe are critical to our financial statements due to the degree of uncertainty regarding the estimates or assumptions involved and the magnitude of the asset, liability, revenue or expense being reported. See Note 2, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies,” in our Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements for a discussion of those policies.

 

Mineral Properties, Leases and Exploration and Development Costs

The Company accounts for mineral properties in accordance with ASC 930: Extractive Activities-Mining. Costs of acquiring mineral properties and leases are capitalized by project area upon purchase of the associated. Mineral properties are periodically assessed for impairment of value and any diminution in value.

 

The Company accounts for mineral exploration and development costs in accordance with ASC 932: Extractive Activities. All exploration expenditures are expensed as incurred, previously capitalized costs are expensed in the period the property is abandoned. Expenditures to develop new mines, to define further mineralization in existing ore bodies, and to expand the capacity of operating mines, are capitalized and amortized on units of production basis over proven and probable reserves.

 

Any option payments received by the Company from third parties or tax credits refunded to the Company are credited to the capitalized cost of the mineral property or to exploration costs as applicable. If payments received exceed the capitalized cost of the mineral property or the exploration costs incurred, the excess is recognized as income in the year received.

 

The amounts shown for mineral properties do not necessarily represent present or future values. Their recoverability is dependent upon the discovery of economically recoverable reserves, the ability of the Company to obtain the necessary financing to complete the development, and future profitable production or proceeds from the disposition thereof.

 

Stock-based compensation

The Company accounts for stock based compensation to employees as required by ASC 718: Compensation-Stock Compensation and stock based compensation to nonemployees as required by ASC 505-50: Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees. Stock awards have been valued at fair value using recent share issuance prices for cash, in arms-length transactions. Options and warrants are valued using the Black-Scholes pricing model. The offset to the recorded stock based compensation cost is to additional paid-in capital. Consideration received on the exercise of stock options is recorded as share capital and additional paid-in capital and the related additional paid-in capital is transferred to share capital.

Results of Operations

 

The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with the Financial Statements and the related notes. This discussion contains forward-looking statements based upon current expectations that involve risks and uncertainties, such as our plans, objectives, expectations and intentions. Our actual results and the timing of certain events could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain factors, including those set forth under “Risks Relating to Our Business,” “Description of Business” and elsewhere in this document. See “Forward-Looking Statements.”

 

Results of Operations – Comparison of the Three month period Ended November 30, 2012 and 2011

 

We generated no revenues for the three month period ended November 30, 2012 or 2011. Total operating expenses decreased to $652,485 in the three month period ended November 30, 2012 compared to the amount of $1,124,521 recorded for the three month period ended November 30, 2011. This decrease was primarily attributable to the lack of stock option benefits in the current period, and is reflected in the following items:

 

Exploration expense was $37,827 for the three month period ended November 30, 2012 compared to $59,241 the three month period ended November 30, 2011. The reduction of expenses related to exploration expenses is attributable to a reduction in funding available to fund exploration expenditures in the current three month period.

·General and Administrative expenses decreased approximately 47% to $564,658 for the three month period ended November 30, 2102 as compared to the comparable prior year period. This decrease was primarily attributable to the reduction in stock based compensation expense of $453,050 compared to the three month period ended November 30, 2011. The principal components of General and Administrative expenses are:

 

Consulting expenses were $272,230 for the three month period ended November 30, 2012, as compared $78,116 in the comparable prior three month period. This increase was primarily attributable to the hiring of consultants to assist the development and support of our business activities in Mexico in December 2011 and January 2012 on one and two year contracts for consulting services.

 

Management fees and salaries decreased by approximately 73% to $61,254 for the three month period ended November 30, 2012, as compared with the three month period ended November 30, 2011. This decrease was primarily attributable to the cessation of fees payable to the Company’s former director of exploration and a reduction in fees payable to Grant White former president and CEO of the Company.

 

Professional fees increased by $361 to $73,478, for the three month period ended November 30, 2012, as compared to the three month period ended November 30, 2011.

 

Stock based compensation expense was $nil for the three month period ended November 30, 2012, compared to $453,050 expense in the three month period ended November 30, 2011. This expense is attributable to the granting of stock options to directors, officers in February 2011 and the expensing of the stock based compensation expense over the period of attribution through February 29, 2012.

 

Other income and expenses for the three month period ended November 30, 2012 totaled other income of $734,163 compared to an expense of $186,170 in the three month period ended November 30, 2011 composed of $30,704 (2011 - $7,614) of interest income from the Company’s note receivable; $136,039 (2011 - $22,682) from the amortization of the discount record from mineral option payment liabilities and other financial liabilities; interest and financing costs of $227,809 compared to $171,102 in the comparable period of 2011. This increase in interest and financing fees is attributable to the accounting for the Company’s additional financial instruments in the three month period ended November 30, 2012. Changes in the fair value of derivative liabilities in the three month period ended November 30, 2012 was $1,067,307 with no comparative for the prior period. Management expects the amount of other expenses related to the amortization of debt discounts to be amortized in the fiscal year ended 2013 and the discount for the mineral property option liabilities will continue through to the year ended 2015. Derivative liabilities fair values are tested at the end of each reporting period and changes in fair value are recorded in the statement of operations as other incomes or expenses.

 

Management does not believe the percentage increases in expenses is indicative of future increases. Until the Company engages in exploration activities for a sufficient time to include comparable prior year periods, management is unable to predict the anticipated increases in expenses.

Results of Operations – Comparison of the Nine month period Ended November 30, 2012 and 2011

 

We generated no revenues for the nine month period ended November 30, 2012 or 2011. Total expenses decreased to $1,812,385 in the nine month period ended November 30, 2012 compared to the amount of $3,940,429 recorded for the nine month period ended November 30, 2011. This decrease was primarily attributable to the Company’s reduction of exploratory activities in Mexico and the lack of stock option benefits in the current period, and other items as noted in the discussion below regarding the following items:

 

Exploration expense was $59,975 for the nine month period ended November 30, 2012, compared to $831,008 expense in the prior year. The reduction of expenses related to exploration expenses is attributable to a reduction in funding available to fund exploration expenditures in the current nine month period.

 

General and Administrative expenses decreased by $1,407,011, for the nine month period ended November 30, 2012 as compared the nine month period ended November 30, 2011. This decrease was primarily attributable to the reduction in stock based compensation recorded in the nine month period ended November 30, 2012. The principal components of General and Administrative expenses are:

 

Consulting expenses was $856,744 for the nine month period ended November 30, 2012, as compared to $300,200 for the nine month period ended November 30, 2011. This increase was primarily attributable to the hiring of consultants to assist the development and support of the Company’s business activities particularly in Mexico.

 

Management fees and salaries decreased by approximately 65% to $227,312, for the nine month period ended November 30, 2012, as compared with the nine month period ended November 30, 2011. This decrease was primarily attributable to the cessation of fees payable to the Company's former director of exploration and a reduction in fees payable to Grant White former president and CEO of the Company as well as adjustments of $23,810 which reduced the aggregate management fees and salaries expenses.

 

Professional fees increased by $52,255 to $229,983, for the nine month period ended November 30, 2012, as compared to the nine month period ended November 30, 2011. This increase was primarily attributable to expenses related to legal and audit costs related to the complexity of our financial reporting and the costs of maintaining litigation defense as set out in the section titled “Legal Matters”.

 

Stock based compensation expense was $nil for the nine month period ended November 30, 2012 compared to $1,359,150 expense in the nine month period ended November 30, 2011. This expense is attributable to the granting of stock options to directors, officers in the fiscal year ended February 28, 2011 and the amortization of resultant stock based compensation expenses.

 

Other income and expenses for the nine month period ended November 30, 2012 totaled $571,751 compared to $285,652 in the nine month period ended November 30, 2011, composed of $30,704 (2011 - $27,348) of interest income from the Company’s note receivable; $630,303 (2011 - $76,268) from the amortization of the discount recorded on the mineral option liability and notes payable; $1,543,852 (2011 - $236,732) of interest and financial fees. This increase in interest and financing fees is attributable to the accounting for the Company’s additional financial instruments in the nine month period ended November 30, 2012 and the accounting for interest and financial fee recording for derivative liabilities. In addition other income and expenses included gain on extinguishment of debt recorded of $389,325 with no comparative in the prior period; income from changes in the fair value of derivative liabilities in the nine month period ended November 30, 2012 was $1,294,111 with no comparative for the prior period; and loss on settlement of amounts payable in the nine month period ended November 30, 2012 was $111,736 with no comparative for the prior period. Management expects the amount of other expenses related to the amortization of debt discounts to be amortized in the fiscal year ended 2013 and the discount for the mineral property option liabilities will continue through to the year ended 2015. Derivative liabilities fair values are tested at the end of each reporting period and changes in fair value are recorded in the statement of operations as other incomes or expenses.

 

Management does not believe the percentage increases in expenses is indicative of future increases. Until the Company engages in exploration activities for a sufficient time to include comparable prior year periods, management is unable to predict the anticipated increases in expenses.

We generated a gain from discontinued operations of $242,501 for the three months ended November 30, 2012 compared to a loss from discontinued operations of $29,041 for the three months ended November 30, 2011. Through the nine month period ended November 30, 2012 we incurred loss from discontinued operations of $3,009,520 (2011 - $29,041) which includes mineral property impairment of charge of $2,756,456. The discontinued operations for the three and nine month periods ended November 30, 2012 and 2011 include no income tax benefit or expense.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Although incorporated in 2005, Focus Gold began its current operations in October 2010, and has not as yet attained a level of operations which allows it to meet its current overhead. We do not contemplate attaining profitable operations until year end 2014, nor is there any assurance that such an operating level can ever be achieved. We will be dependent upon obtaining additional financing in order to adequately fund working capital, infrastructure, and significant exploration and support costs, so that we can increase our property position in Mexico and other parts of the world and achieve a level of mineral reserves to justify mineral development and later production on our properties or properties in which we have interests.

 

While Focus Gold has funded its initial operations with private placements of equity and through the issuance of short term promissory notes, there can be no assurance that adequate financing will continue to be available to us and, if available, on terms that are favorable to us. These factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern and the accompanying consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments related to the recoverability or classification of asset carrying amounts or the amounts and classification of liabilities that may result should we be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

As of November 30, 2012, the Company’s cash balance was $2,222. Accounts payable and accrued liabilities as well as short term payments under contracts as of November 30, 2012 totaled $3,030,336. The Company’s working capital as at November 30, 2012 was a deficit of $2,715,072.

 

During the nine month period ended November 30, 2012 and 2011, our sole means of meeting our cash flow requirements was through the sale of our common stock and loans, advances or donations from directors and officers. In the nine month period ended November 30, 2012 we generated net proceeds of $nil from the sale of stock, (2011 - $1,697,720) and $561,500 from the issuance of debt instruments (2011 - $570,000). The net proceeds from these stock offerings and issuances of debt securities were used to satisfy operations requirements and to conduct exploration activities on the Company’s mineral properties.

 

Other Activities:

The Company is actively looking for acquisitions and joint venture opportunities which can build out its portfolio of mining properties.

 

Contractual Obligations

There are no contractual obligations other than those described in the notes to the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements for the nine month period ended November 30, 2012.

 

Off-balance sheet arrangements

There are no off balance sheet arrangements.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

Our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer have carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure, controls and procedures. Based upon that evaluation, our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer concluded that as of the end of the period covered by this report, our disclosures, controls and procedures are not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms. During the most recently completed three months ended November 30, 2012, there has been no significant change in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

 

We do not have an independent body to oversee our internal controls over financial reporting and lack segregation of duties due to the limited nature and resources of the Company.

 

In light of these material weaknesses, we performed additional analysis and procedures in order to conclude that our financial statements included in this report were fairly stated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Accordingly, we believe that despite our material weaknesses, our financial statements included in this report are fairly stated, in all material respects, in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles.

 

We plan to rectify these weaknesses by implementing an independent board of directors and hiring additional accounting personnel once we have additional resources to do so. We have also hired a new financial consultant who possesses additional financial reporting experience to assist the Company in future fillings.

 

CHANGES IN INTERNAL CONTROLS

 

Our management, with the participation the Principal Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer performed an evaluation as to whether any change in our internal controls over financial reporting occurred during the Quarter ended November 30, 2012. Based on that evaluation, the Company's Principal Executive Officer and Principal Accounting Officer concluded that no change occurred in the Company's internal controls over financial reporting during the Quarter ended November 30, 2012 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company's internal controls over financial reporting.

 

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.
