First Quantum Ventures, Inc.
(A Development Stage Enterprise)
Notes to Financial Statements

(1) The Company First Quantum Ventures, In.. (the Company) is a Nevada chartered development stage corporation which conducts business from its headquarters in West Palm Beach, Florida. The Company was incorporated in Nevada on April 13, 2006, and is a successor by merger with Cine-Source Entertainment, Inc., and has elected June 30 as its fiscal year end. The Company changed its name to First Quantum Ventures, Inc. on February 24, 2004.
 
The Company has not yet engaged in its expected operations. Current activities include raising additional capital and negotiating with potential key personnel and facilities. There is no assurance that any benefit will result from such activities. The Company will not receive any operating revenues until the commencement of operations, but will nevertheless continue to incur expenses until then. The following summarize the more significant accounting and reporting policies and practices of the Company:
 
a) Use of estimates The financial statements have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. In preparing the financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the statements of financial condition and revenues and expenses for the year then ended. Actual results may differ significantly from those estimates.
 
b) Start-Up costs Costs of start-up activities, including organization costs, are expensed as incurred, in accordance with Statement of Position (SOP) 98-5.
 
c) Net loss per share Basic loss per weighted average common share is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period.
 
d) Stock compensation for services rendered The Company issues shares of common stock in exchange for services rendered. The costs of the services are valued according to generally accepted accounting principles and have been charged to operations.
 
(2) Stockholders’ Equity The Company has authorized 500,000,000 shares of $0.001 par value common stock and 50,000,000 shares of $0.001 par value preferred stock.. The Company had 34,030,390 shares of common stock issued and outstanding at June 30, 2007. On April 26, 2004, the Company completed a 1-fo-200 reverse split of its common stock, leaving 30,390 shares remaining outstanding. In May 2004 the company authorized the issuance of 5,000,000 shares of its restricted common stock to its sole officer and director for services. In November 2004 the company issued a total of 20,000,000 shares of its common stock to a third party for capital and other services rendered on behalf of the company on or before November 2, 2004. On the same date the company issued an additional 9,000,000 shares of its common stock in exchange for settlement and satisfaction of the balance of any indebtedness of the company. All such shares were issued at par value. On February 25, 2008, the company completed a 1-for-100 reverse split of its common stock, leaving 340,304 shares outstanding.
 
(3) Income Taxes Deferred income taxes (benefits) are provided for certain income and expenses which are recognized in different periods for tax and financial reporting purposes. The Company had net operating loss carry-forwards for income tax purposes of approximately $0.

 
(4) Going Concern Even though as shown in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, the Company incurred cumulative net losses totaling $2,697 for the period ended September 30, 2008, it has a stockholders’ deficit of approximately $44,033 as of September 30, 2008. These conditions raise substantial doubt as to the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon increasing sales and obtaining additional capital and financing. The Company is

Item 2 - Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations

FOR THREE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2008 AND 2007
 
Discussion and Analysis

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with the financial statements of the Company and the accompanying notes appearing subsequently under the caption "Financial Statements."

Results of Operations

For the quarter ended September 30, 2008 we experienced a loss of $2,967 as opposed to a loss for the three month ended September 30, 2007 in the amount of $11, 409.  The decrease loss was due to the fact that we did not incur any legal fees during this quarter.

Net Operating Revenues

We had operating revenue of $0 and $0 for the quarters ended September 30, 2008, and 2007, respectively.

Operating Expenses and Charges

The operating expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2008 were $2,697 as compared with operating expenses for the quarter ended September 30, 2007 of $11,409.  Again the decrease in operating expenses was largely due to the fact that the Company had no legal fees during this quarter.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

For the quarter ended September 30, 2008 , the Company generated no cash flow from operations. Consequently, the Company has been dependent upon its lenders to fund its cash requirements. The same situation existed for the quarter ended September 30, 2007

At September 30, 2008 , the Company had cash of $0 and a convertible note payable of $37,692.

Business Plan and Strategy

FQVI is authorized to engage in any lawful corporation undertaking including, but limited to, selected mergers and acquisitions. We have been in a development stage since inception and at the current time have no active operations. The Company intends to satisfy securities law requirements for 34 Act reporting. This will enable an acquired foreign or domestic private company to become a reporting (“public”) company whose securities qualify for trading in the United States secondary market.
 
           We will attempt to locate and negotiate with a business entity for the combination of that target company with us. The combination will normally take the form of a merger, stock- for-stock exchange or stock-for-assets exchange. In most instances, the target company will wish to structure the business combination to be within the definition of a tax-free reorganization under Section 351 or Section 368 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended. No assurances can be given that we will be successful in locating or negotiating with any target company.
 
Going Concern

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that we will continue as a going concern. We have a stockholders deficit of $57,968 and insignificant net losses from operations, respectively, for the six months ended September 30, 2008 and 2007. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In July 2001 the FASB issued SFAS No. 141 "Business Combinations" and SFAS No. 142 "Goodwill and Other Intangible Assets." We have adopted the provisions of SFAS No. 141 and 142, and such adoption did not impact our results of
operations.
 
 
-1-


 
 In July 2001 the SEC issued SAB 102 "Selected Loan Loss Allowance Methodology and Documentation Issues." We do not expect this SAB to have any effect on our financial position or results of operations.

In August 2001, the FASB issued SFAS No. 143, "Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations." Management does not expect the standard to have any effect on our financial position or results of operations.

In October 2001, the FASB issued SFAS No. 144, "Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets." We have adopted the provisions of SFAS No. 144 and 142, and such adoption did not impact our results of operations.

In April 2002 the FASB issued SFAS No. 145, "Rescission of SFAS's 4, 44 and 64, Amendment of SFAS No. 13 and Technical Corrections." Management does not expect the standard to have any effect on our financial position or results of operations.

In June 2002 the FASB issued SFAS No. 146, "Accounting for Costs Associated with Exit or Disposal Activities." Management does not expect the standard to have any effect on our financial position or results of operations.
 
In October 2002 the FASB issued SFAS No. 147, "Acquisition of Certain Financial Institutions." Management does not expect the standard to have any effect on our financial position or results of operations.
 
Critical Accounting Policies
 
Use of Estimates. The financial statements have been prepared in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. In preparing the financial statements, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities as of the date of the statements of financial condition and revenues and expenses for the year then ended. Actual results may differ significantly from those estimates.
 
Start-Up Costs. Costs of start-up activities, including organization costs, are expensed as incurred, in accordance with Statement of Position (SOP) 98-5.

Net loss per share. Basic loss per weighted average common share excludes dilution and is computed by dividing the net loss by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period. The Company applies Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 128, "Earnings Per Share" (FAS 123).

Fair value of financial instruments. The carrying values of cash and accrued liabilities approximate their fair values due to the short maturity of these instruments.
 
Critical Accounting Policies

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results may differ from those estimates.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have not entered into any off-balance sheet arrangements. We do not anticipate entering into any off-balance sheet arrangements during the next 12 months.
