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 February 6, 2008. On April 26, 2004, the Company completed a 1-for-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 $12,443 for the period ended March 31, 2009, it has a stockholders’ deficit of approximately $53,779 as of March 31, 2009.  These conditions raise

Notes to Financial Statements

(4) Going Concern, continued 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 attempting to raise additional funds for the Company through third parties. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

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

FOR THE QUARTER ENDED MARCH 31, 2009 AND 2008
 
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 December 31, 2008 we experienced a loss of $12,443 as opposed to a loss of $20,071 for the quarter ended March 31, 2008 .
 
Net Operating Revenues
 
We had operating revenue of $0 and $0 for the quarter ended March  31, 2009, and 2008, respectively.
 
Operating Expenses and Charges
 
The operating expenses for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 were $12,443. For the quarter ended March 31, 2008, the significant operating expenses were $20,071.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
For the quarter ended March 31, 2009, 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 March 31, 2008.
 
At March 31, 2009, the Company had cash of $0 and a convertible note payable of $54,120.
 
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 $54,120 and significant losses from operations for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 and 2008. These conditions raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if we are unable to continue as a going concern.
