PART I

 

 ITEM 1. BUSINESS

 

Corporate History

 

The Company was incorporated in Nevada in June 2007 as a development stage company which planned to operate as a restaurant holding company, specializing in the development and expansion of proven independent restaurant concepts into multi-unit locations through corporate-owned stores, licensing, and franchising opportunities, funding permitting. In connection with our entry into and the closing of the Asset Purchase Agreement with Petron Energy Special Corp. (“Petron Special”), described below, we changed our business focus to oil and gas exploration and production and related operations and ceased undertaking any restaurant related operations.

 

Our mailing address is 17950 Preston Road, Suite 960, Dallas, Texas 75252, and our telephone number is (972) 272-8190.

 

Acquisition of Company by Petron Energy Special Corp.

 

On August 9, 2011, David Cho, the Company’s then Chief Executive Officer and Director and then 54.4% owner of the Company’s common stock (550,000,000 shares or 5,500,000 pre-forward split shares); Pete Wainscott, the Company’s then Director and then 34.6% owner of the Company’s common stock (350,000,000 shares or 3,500,000 pre-forward split shares); and David M. Loev the then 9.9% owner of the Company’s common stock (100,000,000 shares, or 1,000,000 pre-forward split shares) (collectively the “Selling Shareholders”) entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement with Petron Special. Pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Selling Shareholders sold an aggregate of 1,000,000,000 shares (10,000,000 pre-forward split) shares of the Company’s restricted common stock to Petron Special in consideration for $232,750 (the “Purchase Price”); provided that a required term and condition of the closing of the Stock Purchase Agreement was that the Company had no liabilities at closing. As such, a portion of the Purchase Price was used to satisfy the Company’s outstanding liabilities. As a result of the Stock Purchase Agreement, Petron Special, and Mr. Floyd Smith (“Mr. Smith”) through his control of Petron Special, became the owner of 98.9% of the Company’s outstanding shares.

Further, on August 12, 2011, the Company entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with Petron Special (“Petron Asset Purchase Agreement”). Under the Petron Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company agreed to purchase substantially all of Petron Special’s assets (which consist of various oil and gas interests, leases and working interests and equipment, collectively, the “Assets”) and in consideration for 60,000,000 shares of the Company’s restricted common stock (the “Company Shares”). The 60,000,000 common shares were later adjusted to 78,511,478. The 78,511,478 shares were exchanged for all the preferred and common shares outstanding of Petron Special. The Petron Asset Purchase Agreement also required Petron Special to indemnify the Company from any liability associated with the Assets for actions which took place prior to the closing and for the Company to indemnify Petron Special against any liability associated with the Assets due to actions which may take place after the closing. The Petron Asset Purchase Agreement also includes a “non-compete provision,” which prohibits Petron Special and Floyd L. Smith from competing against the Company for a period of twelve (12) months from the closing of the Petron Asset Purchase Agreement. Additionally, the Petron Asset Purchase Agreement required that the Company agree to commit a minimum of $5,000 and 2,000,000 shares (20,000 pre-forward split shares) of common stock per month to investor relations services following the closing; and allowed the Company to enter into employment agreements with certain employees of Petron Special (provided that no such employment agreements, other than the Executive Employment Agreement with Mr. Smith have been entered into or agreed to, to date).

 

Assumption of Petron Special’s Agreement with ONE Energy Corp.

 

On August 8, 2011, Petron Special entered into an Asset Acquisition Agreement with ONE Energy Capital Corp., ONE Energy International Corp. and their affiliated parties (the “One Energy Asset Acquisition Agreement”). Pursuant to the One Energy Asset Acquisition Agreement, Petron Special agreed to acquire the assets of ONE Energy Capital Corp., ONE Energy International Corp. and their affiliated parties in aggregate consideration for shares of convertible preferred stock, contingent upon the mutual agreement of final closing agreements. The final closing agreements were consummated on February 9, 2012, as elaborated in greater detail below. Pursuant to the terms of the acquisition of the Company by Petron Special, the Company assumed Petron Special’s rights and obligations under the One Energy Asset Acquisition Agreement.

 

Plan of Reorganization and Asset Purchase Agreement with ONE Energy Corp. and Acquisition of Knox County Leases

 

On February 9, 2012, the Company entered into the “Plan of Reorganization and Asset Purchase Agreement” with ONE Energy International Corp, (“OEI”) a Nevada Corporation, and its Affiliate Companies, which was intended to represent the final closing definitive agreement contemplated by the One Energy Asset Acquisition Agreement described above.  Under the terms of the Plan of Reorganization and Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company acquired all of the owned by assets of OEI and its affiliates in exchange for 5,910,000 shares of the Company’s Series B Convertible Preferred Stock (the “Series B Preferred Stock”). The Series B Preferred Stock were scheduled to convert into common stock shares of the Company having a total value of $5,910,000, based on the average trading price of the Company’s common stock on the five trading days prior to the Conversion Date, which was on January 7, 2013. The Series B Preferred Stock vote one-for-one with the common stock shares of the Company and cannot be converted by the holders thereof if such conversion would result in the acquisition by such holder of more than 9.99% of the Company’s issued and outstanding common stock. It is also anticipated that the shareholders receiving the Series B Preferred Stock described also received warrants to purchase an aggregate of 10,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock with an exercise price of $0.08 per share.

 

Pursuant to the Plan of Reorganization and Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company received interests in the Knox County Leases in the State of Texas, which are described in greater detail below.

 

Acquisition of Wagoner County Leases

 

On September 28, 2011, the Company entered into two Oil and Gas Leases and obtained rights to conduct oil and gas exploration and production activities on an aggregate of 320 acres (160 acres pursuant to each lease) located in Wagoner County, Oklahoma (the “Wagoner County Leases”). Pursuant to the lease agreements, we agreed to pay the lessees under each of the leases total consideration for such lease rights consisting of $10 at the time of the entry into the agreements and (a) 3/16th of all oil produced from the leased property; (b) 3/16th of all gas of whatever nature or kind produced or sold from the leased property; (c) 3/16th of the gross proceeds, from the mouth of the well, of any gas produced from any oil well and used to manufacture gasoline; and (d) certain other nominal fees, during the period any well is shut-in. The leases have a term of one (1) year, provided that they continue in effect thereafter for so long as oil or gas is produced on such leases by the Company, if any.

Change in Control

 

As a result of the Stock Purchase Agreement described above, Petron Special, and as a result of his control of Petron Special, Floyd L. Smith, obtained majority voting control over the Company.  Furthermore, in connection with the Company’s entry into the Executive Employment Agreement with Mr. Smith, Mr. Smith obtained rights to shares of the Company’s Series A Preferred Stock, which allows him to vote 51% of our outstanding common stock on any and all shareholder matters (including the appointment of Directors), thereby providing him continuing voting control over the Company, pursuant only to the terms and conditions of the Certificate of Designation of the Company’s Series A Preferred Stock.

 

Recent Changes in Officers and Directors

 

On August 10, 2011, our Directors, David Cho and Pete Wainscott, increased the number of Directors of the Company to three, and appointed Floyd L. Smith as a Director of the Company, pursuant to the power provided to the Board of Directors by the Company’s Bylaws to fill the vacancy left by the increase. Immediately following such appointment, David Cho, our President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Secretary, and Director resigned as an officer and Director of the Company and Pete Wainscott, our Director, resigned as a Director of the Company and Floyd L. Smith was appointed as the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, President, Secretary and Treasurer of the Company. Additionally, as a result of the resignations of Mr. Cho and Mr. Wainscott as Directors of the Company, Mr. Smith became the sole Director of the Company.

 

On August 15, 2011, Floyd L. Smith, our then sole Director, appointed David Knepper and Kenny Fox as Directors of the Company. Kenny Fox resigned as a member of the Board of Directors on December 5, 2011. To date, our Board of Directors is currently composed of Floyd L. Smith and David Knepper as its sole members.

 

Amendment to Articles of Incorporation

 

On September 7, 2011, the Company’s Board of Directors and then majority shareholder, Petron Special (which held approximately 98.9% of the Company’s outstanding shares of common stock and is controlled by Mr. Smith), approved the filing of a Certificate of Amendment (the “Amendment”) to the Company’s Articles of Incorporation to affect (i) a name change of the Company to “Petron Energy II, Inc.”; (ii) a forward stock split of the Company’s outstanding common stock in a ratio of 100:1; and (iii) an increase in the Company’s authorized shares of stock to 1,000,000,000 shares of common stock, $0.001 par value per share and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, $0.001 par value per share; each effective as of October 15, 2011.

 

The Amendment was filed with the Secretary of State of Nevada on September 9, 2011 and the Amendment was made effective with FINRA at the open of business on October 17, 2011. As a result of the Amendment, the Company’s trading symbol on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board changed to “RCNCD”, and the Company’s common stock traded under that symbol until November 29, 2011, at which time the Company’s symbol on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board changed to “PEII” in connection with the name change affected by the Amendment. The effects of the Forward Split have been retroactively reflected throughout this Report.

 

Reverse Split

 

On December 27, 2012, Petron Energy II, Inc., a Nevada corporation (the “Company”) effectuated a reverse split (the “Reverse Split”) of its issued common shares whereby every ten (10) pre-split shares of common stock were exchanged for one (1) post-split share of the Company's common stock.  As a result, the total issued shares of common stock of the Company decreased from One Hundred Twenty Million Two Hundred Thirty Thousand Six Hundred and Eighty Eight (120,230,688) shares prior to the Reverse Split to Twelve Million Twenty Three Thousand and Sixty Nine (12,023,069) shares following the Reverse Split.  FINRA confirmed approval of the Reverse Split on December 20, 2012 and the Reverse Split became effective on December 27, 2012.

Private Placement

 

In August 2011, the Company sold an aggregate of 6,462,900 shares of the Company’s restricted common stock to twelve “accredited investors” in private transactions for aggregate consideration of $387,774 or $0.06 per share in a private placement.

 

In September and October 2011, the Company sold an aggregate of 4,333,300 shares of the Company’s restricted common stock to nine “accredited investors” in private transactions for aggregate consideration of $259,998 or $0.06 per share.

During the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company sold an aggregate of 717,175 (post-split) shares of the Company’s restricted common stock to 43 “accredited investors” in private transactions for aggregate consideration of $838,326.

 

 Business Operations

 

The Company is engaged primarily in the acquisition, development, production, exploration for and the sale of oil, gas and gas liquids in the United States. As of December 31, 2012, the Company is operating in the states of Texas and Oklahoma. In addition, the Company operates two gas gathering systems located in the Tulsa, Wagoner, Rogers and Mayes counties of Oklahoma. The pipeline consists of approximately 132 miles of steel and poly pipe, a gas processing plant and other ancillary equipment. The Company sells its oil and gas products primarily to a domestic pipeline and to other oil companies.

 

As a result of the closing of the Petron Asset Purchase Agreement, the assumption of the One Energy Asset Acquisition Agreement, the consummation of the Plan of Reorganization and Asset Purchase Agreement, and our acquisition of the Henderson and Knox County TX, Tulsa and Wagoner County Leases, our business goal has changed to the creation of an asset base consisting of oil and gas and natural gas properties which have a proven history of production. We have already made progress in connection with this goal by our acquisition of the Henderson and Knox County TX, Tulsa and Wagoner County Leases and our acquisition of the Assets of Petron Special pursuant to the Petron Asset Purchase Agreement described above.

 

We hope to increase the value of the assets we acquire in the future through further acquisitions, drilling operations and the re-working of wells. We plan to concentrate our development efforts in Texas and Oklahoma. The Petron Asset Purchase Agreement relates to our acquisition from Petron Special of approximately one thousand five hundred leased acres, which include 59 existing wells which will need to be reworked in an effort to attempt to re-establish commercial production (collectively the “Leases”). We estimate the costs of reworking these wells at $35,000--$45,000 per well and estimate that it will take approximately two weeks to rework each well, funding permitting. The producing properties acquired in connection with the Petron Asset Purchase Agreement currently produce approximately three (3) barrels of oil per day (BOPD”). We also assumed the One Energy Asset Acquisition Agreement, described above, pursuant to which we plan to acquire certain additional oil and gas producing properties located in Texas, including an additional two thousand eight hundred leased acres which include 34 existing wells.

 

Our operations are focused in the United States (Texas and Oklahoma) because we believe focusing our operations in the United States offers us the following advantages:

 

•Low risk opportunities;

•Growth opportunities;

•Upside profit potential in connection with oil and unconventional gas reserves; and

•Availability of technological improvements which may increase oil and gas reserves.

 

Our target market is the East Texas Cotton Valley, the Woodford Shale in Oklahoma and the Tannehill Sand in North Texas which we believe each offer a high success rate with respect to developing producing wells and long term cash flow. The properties we acquired through the Petron Asset Purchase Agreement and the rights we acquired in connection with the Henderson and Knox County TX, Tulsa and Wagoner County OK Leases are all located in the areas described in the East Texas Cotton Valley, the Woodford Shale in Oklahoma and the Tannehill Sand in North Texas.

The East Texas Cotton Valley is a shale field made up of shale, sandstone, and clay deposits which have been shown to hold natural gas deposits. The East Texas Cotton Valley field is located in east Texas in Rusk County, Panola County and Harris County. Several companies including Goodrich Petroleum, Petrohawk Energy, Devon Energy and El Paso Energy have operations in the East Texas Cotton Valley trend.

 

The Woodford Shale, also known as the Devonian Woodford Shale is located in south and north eastern Oklahoma. The largest gas producer in the Woodford Shale is Newfield Exploration; other operators include Devon Energy, Chesapeake Energy, Cimarex Energy and Antero Resources.

 

The Tannehill Sand field is located in Knox County in north central Texas.

 

The production life from new and existing wells in each area typically has a life expectancy of 10 - 25 years. The Cotton Valley Trend and Woodford Shale are primarily natural gas trends; however some wells provide oil production along with gas production. In addition to the Woodford Shale, there are 4 separate pay zones (the Tyner, Misner, Burgen and Dutucher) which are oil pay zones, while the Tannehill pay zone in Knox County, Texas is primarily an oil pay zone.

 

Subsequent to the closing of the One Energy Asset Acquisition Agreement, we acquired additional interests which have a long-term history of successful production and display characteristics of being an under developed asset. By applying new technologies, we hope to exploit and produce more natural gas and oil from these assets. Additionally, the Company plans to engage primarily in the exploration and development of oil and gas leases in Oklahoma, East and North Texas and Western Louisiana over the next two years through one or more of the following activities: (i) acquisition of oil and gas leases (similar to the Wagoner County Leases); (ii) contract drilling on leases owned by the Company through investment partnerships and banking relationships sponsored by the Company; (iii) acquisition or oil and gas producing properties; and (iv) acquisition of oil and gas companies having properties (producing and non-producing). Wells to be drilled by the Company will include both exploratory and development wells. We estimate that newly drilled wells will have a total cost range including completion of approximately $125,000 - $150,000 and reworked wells will have a total cost range of approximately $35,000 - $45,000.

 

We also plan to operate the natural gas pipeline which we acquired as part of the Petron Asset Purchase Agreement and undertake exploration and workover activities on oil and natural gas wells acquired in the acquisition.

 

Our currently planned workover activities include “fracking,” as elaborated below, non-producing oil and natural gas wells in an effort to increase and/or restart production from such wells.

 

Hydraulic Fracturing ("Fracking")

 

When sandstone rocks contain oil or gas in commercial quantities, recovery can be vastly improved by a process called fracturing (“fracking”) which is used to increase permeability to its optimum level. Basically, to fracture a formation, a fracturing service company pumps a specifically blended fluid down the well and into the formation under great pressure. Pumping continues until the formation literally cracks open. Meanwhile, a special type of frack sand is mixed into the fracturing fluid. These materials are called proppants. The proppant enters the fractures in the formation and when pumping is stopped and the pressure is allowed to dissipate, the proppant remains in the fractures. Since the fractures try to close back together after the pressure on the well is released, the proppant is needed to hold or prop the fractures open. These propped-open fractures provide passages for oil or gas to flow into the well.

 

In addition to new technology and fracking mixtures, a myriad of other technologies can be applied to produce increased production results. We plan to constantly track different well completion strategies and production results to generate an approach that will yield:

 

• Higher initial flow rates;

• Slower decline rates; and

• Improved recoverability.

Horizontal Wells

 

The first recorded true horizontal well was drilled near Texon, Texas (just west of San Angelo), and was completed in 1929; however, little practical application of horizontal wells occurred until the early 1980’s, by which time the advent of improved down hole drilling motors and the invention of other necessary supporting equipment, materials, and technologies, particularly down hole telemetry equipment, had brought some kinds of applications within the realm of commercial viability.

 

Horizontal drilling is the process of drilling and completing, for production, a well that begins as a vertical or inclined linear bore which extends from the surface to a subsurface location just above the target reservoir, then bears off on an arc to intersect the reservoir at the “entry point”, and, thereafter, continues at a near-horizontal angle and will substantially or entirely remain within the reservoir until the desired bottom hole location is reached.

 

The technical objective of horizontal drilling is to expose significantly more reservoir rock to the well bore surface than can be achieved via drilling of a conventional vertical well. The two primary benefits of horizontal drilling success are: 1) increased productivity of the reservoir; and 2) prolongation of the reservoir’s commercial life.

 

An offset to the benefits provided by successful horizontal drilling is its higher cost. However, we believe that it is probable that the cost premium associated with horizontal drilling will continue to decline as horizontal drilling activity increases, provided that there is the possibility that new and improved technology could add additional costs in the future.

 

Horizontal wells generally have a higher productivity and pay zone contact per well than vertical wells, and allow operators to take advantage of highly heterogeneous or layered reservoirs, like the Cotton Valley Sandstone which we plan to target. Horizontal drilling is now utilized in a variety of carbonate and sandstone reservoirs across the country, including the Austin Chalk, James Lime, Woodbine and the Barnett Shale in Texas.

 

We plan to use horizontal wells in an effort to produce natural gas from the assets we acquired through the Asset Purchase Agreement.

 

PROJECTS

 

Our three leased properties can be identified on the below map and consist of two leases in Oklahoma, the Tulsa County leases and the Wagoner County Leases. In Texas, the Company operates the Knox County leases. All of these leases are described in more detail below.

 

 

  

 Tulsa Leases

 

The Company’s interest in the Tulsa project is 280 Acres over three leaseholds. The Company has a 75% working interest and a 60.9% net revenue interest.  The well’s average EUR (Estimated Ultimate Recovery) is 27,500 BOE, which consists of 55% oil. There are 2 producing wells and 6 identified drilling locations.

9
 

 

 

 Wagoner County Leases

 

The Wagoner Leases consist of 820 Acres with 8 producing wells. The Company has a 75% working interest in the leases and a 60.9% net revenue interest. There are also 10 identified drilling locations. The well’s average EUR is 27,500 BOE, which consists of 55% oil. This Lease has recompletion opportunities in water and natural gas injection, with 58 recompletion targets.

 

  

Knox County Leases

 

The Company has a 100% working interest in the Knox County lease and an 81.25% net working interest. The lease includes 2315 Acres (as depicted below) and an additional option on 500 acres. There are 7 producing wells on the property and 2 identified drilling locations. The average EUR’s are 15,000 BOE, which consists of 99% oil. There are recompletion opportunities for Water and Natural Gas Injection and 48 Recompletion Targets.

Market information

 

Of the natural gas consumed in the United States in 2011, about 95% was produced domestically; thus, the supply of natural gas is not as dependent on foreign producers as is the supply of crude oil, and the delivery system is less subject to interruption. The availability of large quantities of shale gas should enable the United States to consume a predominantly domestic supply of gas for many years and produce more natural gas than it consumes.

 

The U.S. Energy Information Administration's Annual Energy Outlook 2013 Early Release projects U.S. natural gas production to increase from 23.0 trillion cubic feet in 2011 to 33.1 trillion cubic feet in 2040, a 44% increase. Almost all of this increase in domestic natural gas production is due to projected growth in shale gas production, which grows from 7.8 trillion cubic feet in 2011 to 16.7 trillion cubic feet in 2040.

 

An analysis in the Annual Energy Outlook 2012 indicates that the uncertainty in the size and economics of the domestic shale gas resources could have a considerable impact on future domestic natural gas production and that 2035 shale gas production could be between 9.7 trillion cubic feet and 20.5 trillion cubic feet. U.S. total natural gas production is projected to range between 26.1 trillion cubic feet and 34.1 trillion cubic feet.

 

Dependence on one or a few major customers

 

The nature of the oil and natural gas industry is not based on individual customers. Crude oil and natural gas products are sold to local and international brokers as well as to refineries.

 

Competition

 

The oil and gas industry is intensely competitive. This is particularly true in the competition for acquisitions of prospective oil and natural gas properties and oil and gas reserves. We believe that the combination of: (i) the location of the leasehold acreage in our Tulsa and Wagoner County Oklahoma Leases and in Knox County Texas Leases; (ii) our exploration, drilling, and production expertise; and (iii) the experience and knowledge of our management and industry partners will enable us to compete effectively in the oil and gas industry. Notwithstanding the above, we will still face stiff competition from a substantial number of major and independent oil and gas companies that have larger technical staffs and greater financial and operational resources than we do. Many of these companies not only engage in the acquisition, exploration, development, and production of oil and natural gas reserves, but also have refining operations, market refined products, and own drilling rigs. We will also compete with other oil and natural gas companies in attempting to secure drilling rigs and other equipment necessary for the drilling and completion of wells.

 

Regulatory matters and government regulations

11
 

 

Regulation of Oil and Gas Production, Sales and Transportation

 

The oil and gas industry is subject to regulation by numerous national, state and local governmental agencies and departments. Compliance with these regulations is often difficult and costly and noncompliance could result in substantial penalties and risks. Most jurisdictions in which we operate and plan to operate also have statutes, rules, regulations or guidelines governing the conservation of natural resources, including the unitization or pooling of oil and gas properties and the establishment of maximum rates of production from oil and gas wells. Some jurisdictions also require the filing of drilling and operating permits, bonds and reports. The failure to comply with these statutes, rules and regulations could result in the imposition of fines and penalties and the suspension or cessation of operations in affected areas.

 

We intend to operate various gathering systems. The United States Department of Transportation and certain governmental agencies regulate the safety and operating aspects of the transportation and storage activities of these facilities by prescribing standards. However, based on current standards concerning transportation and storage activities and any proposed or contemplated standards, we believe that the impact of such standards is not material to our operations, capital expenditures or financial position.

 

Regulatory Matters /Environmental Regulation

 

Various federal, state and local laws and regulations relating to the protection of the environment, including the discharge of materials into the environment, may affect our planned exploration, development and production operations and the costs of those operations. These laws and regulations, among other things, govern the amounts and types of substances that may be released into the environment, the issuance of permits to conduct exploration, drilling and production operations, the handling, discharge and disposition of waste materials, the reclamation and abandonment of wells, sites and facilities, financial assurance under the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 and the remediation of contaminated sites. These laws and regulations may impose substantial liabilities for noncompliance and for any contamination resulting from our planned operations and may require the suspension or cessation of operations in affected areas.

 

The environmental laws and regulations applicable to us and our planned operations include, among others, the following United States federal laws and regulations:

 

o   Clean Air Act, and its amendments, which governs air emissions;

 

o   Clean Water Act, which governs discharges of pollutants into waters of the United States;

 

o   Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation and Liability Act, which imposes strict liability where releases of hazardous substances have occurred or are threatened to occur (commonly known as “Superfund”);

 

o   Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, which governs the management of solid waste;

 

o   Oil Pollution Act of 1990, which imposes liabilities resulting from discharges of oil into navigable waters of the United States;

 

o   Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act, which requires reporting of toxic chemical inventories;

 

o   Safe Drinking Water Act, which governs underground injection and disposal activities; and

 

o   U.S. Department of Interior regulations, which impose liability for pollution cleanup and damages.

 

We plan to routinely obtain permits for facilities and operations in accordance with these applicable laws and regulations on an ongoing basis as required by applicable laws.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS.

 

Our securities are highly speculative and should only be purchased by persons who can afford to lose their entire investment in our Company. If any of the following risks actually occur, our business and financial results could be negatively affected to a significant extent. The Company's business is subject to many risk factors, including the following:

 

General Risks Related To The Company

 

We May Not Be Able To Continue Our Business Plan Without Additional Financing.

 

We will need to raise significant funding in the future, including approximately $2.5 million to continue our operations for the next 12 months and approximately $10 million in additional funding to expand our operations and acquire additional properties as described above under “Plan of Operations.” In August 2011, the Company sold an aggregate of 6,462,900 shares of the Company’s restricted common stock to twelve “accredited investors” in private transactions for aggregate consideration of $387,774 or $0.06 per share in a private placement. In September and October 2011, the Company sold an aggregate of 4,333,300 shares of the Company’s restricted common stock to nine “accredited investors” in private transactions for aggregate consideration of $259,998 or $0.06 per share.  During the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company sold an aggregate of 717,175 (post-split) shares of the Company’s restricted common stock to 43 “accredited investors” in private transactions for aggregate consideration of $838,326. In April of 2013 the Company secured a $5 million revolving line of credit.

 

Moving forward we plan to rely on financing and additional funds from current investors of the Company and third party investors in order to support our operations and pay our expenses. Additional funding will likely come from debt and/or equity financing from the sale of our common stock. If we are successful in completing an equity financing, existing shareholders will experience dilution of their interest in our Company. There are no assurances that we will be able to achieve further sales of our common stock or any other form of additional financing. If we are unable to achieve the financing necessary to continue our plan of operations, then we will not be able to continue our business operations. If we are unable to raise the funds we require, your investment could become worthless.

 

Shareholders May Be Diluted Significantly Through Our Efforts To Obtain Financing, Satisfy Obligations And/or Complete Acquisitions Through The Issuance Of Additional Shares Of Our Common Stock Or Other Securities.

 

Wherever possible, our Board of Directors will attempt to use non-cash consideration to satisfy the Company’s obligations. In many instances, we believe that the non-cash consideration will consist of restricted shares of our common stock or other securities (including the shares of convertible preferred stock that we have agreed to issue to shareholders of ONE Energy Capital Corp., ONE Energy International Corp. and their affiliated parties in connection with the Asset Acquisition Agreement described above). Additionally, moving forward, we may attempt to conduct acquisitions and/or mergers of other entities or assets using our common stock or other securities as payment for such transactions. Our Board of Directors has authority, without action or vote of the shareholders, to issue all or part of the authorized but unissued shares of common stock and preferred stock with various preferences and other rights. If such transactions occur, this may result in substantial dilution of the ownership interests of existing shareholders, and dilute the book value of the Company’s common stock.

13
 

 

We Are Party to a Plan of Reorganization and Asset Purchase Agreement Pursuant to Which We Paid Significant Consideration For The Acquisition Of Certain Oil And Gas Assets, Which Consideration Caused Substantial Dilution To Our Existing Shareholders and May Cause Dilution in the Future.

 

Pursuant to the Plan of Reorganization and Asset Purchase Agreement, the Company agreed to acquire the assets of ONE Energy Capital Corp., ONE Energy International Corp. and their affiliated parties in aggregate consideration for 5,910,00 shares of the Company’s Series B Convertible Preferred stock. Under the Plan of Reorganization and Asset Purchase Agreement, these shares of Series B Convertible preferred stock convert into common shares of the Company having a total value of $5,910,000, based on the average trading price of the Company’s common stock on the five days prior to the date of conversion; vote one-for-one with the common shares; cannot be converted by the holders thereof if such conversion would result in the acquisition by such holder of more than 9.99% of the Company’s outstanding stock (the “Ownership Limitation”). 4,189,542 shares of the Series B Convertible stock have been converted into an aggregate of 19,255,145 shares of the common stock of the Company. At May 13, 2013, we had 1,720,458 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock issued and outstanding which had not converted because of the Ownership Limitation. The shareholders receiving the convertible preferred stock described above also received warrants to purchase an aggregate of 1,000,000 (post-split) shares of the Company’s common stock with an exercise price of $0.08 per share.

  

Our Chief Executive Officer, Floyd L. Smith, Holds Series A Preferred Stock Which Will Provide Him Continuing Voting Control Over the Company, And As A Result, He Will Exercise Significant Control Over Corporate Decisions.

 

Floyd L. Smith, our President and Director, has beneficial ownership of the entire class of the Company’s Series A Preferred Stock, which voting together as a class, have the right to vote 51% of the Company’s voting shares on any and all shareholder matters. Additionally, the Company shall not adopt any amendments to the Company's Bylaws, Articles of Incorporation, as amended, make any changes to the Certificate of Designations establishing the Series A Preferred Stock, or effect any reclassification of the Series A Preferred Stock, without the affirmative vote of at least 66-2/3% of the outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock. However, the Company may, by any means authorized by law and without any vote of the holders of shares of Series A Preferred Stock, make technical, corrective, administrative or similar changes to such Certificate of Designations that do not, individually or in the aggregate, adversely affect the rights or preferences of the holders of shares of Series A Preferred Stock.

 

The Series A Preferred Stock also includes a provision which provides that in the event that Mr. Smith dies or becomes disabled within eighteen months of the issuance date of the Series A Preferred Stock to Mr. Smith, that ASL Energy Corp. and or its assigns shall have the right, with 61 days prior written notice to the Company to assume the ownership of and/or the rights associated with such shares of Series A Preferred Stock (the “Assignment Rights”). Other than the Super Majority Voting Rights, the Series A Preferred Stock does not have any other dividend, liquidation, conversion, or redemption rights, whatsoever.

 

As a result of the above, Mr. Smith exercises control in determining the outcome of corporate transactions or other matters, including the election of directors, mergers, consolidations, the sale of all or substantially all of our assets, and also the power to prevent or cause a change in control. Any investors who purchase shares will be minority shareholders and as such will have no say in the direction of the Company and the election of Directors. Investors in the Company should keep in mind that even if you own shares of the Company's common stock and wish to vote them at annual or special shareholder meetings, your shares will have no effect on the outcome of corporate decisions or the election of Directors. Furthermore, investors should be aware that Mr. Smith may choose to elect new Directors to the Board of Directors of the Company and/or take the Company in a new business direction altogether, and, as a result, current shareholders of the Company will have little to no say in such matters.

 

Shareholders Who Hold Unregistered Shares Of Our Common Stock Are Subject To Resale Restrictions Pursuant To Rule 144, Due To Our Previous Status As A “Shell Company.”

 

Pursuant to Rule 144 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (“ Rule 144 ”), a “ shell company ” is defined as a company that has no or nominal operations; and, either no or nominal assets; assets consisting solely of cash and cash equivalents; or assets consisting of any amount of cash and cash equivalents and nominal other assets. As such, prior to the completion of the Asset Purchase Agreement and our related Form 8-K filing, we had been considered a “ shell company” pursuant to Rule 144, and as such, sales of our securities pursuant to Rule 144 were not able to be made until: 1) we had ceased to be a “ shell company,” which occurred after the closing the Asset Purchase Agreement); 2) we are subject to Section 13 or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and have filed all of our required periodic reports for at least the previous one year period prior to any sale pursuant to Rule 144; and a period of at least twelve months has elapsed from that date. “Form 10 information” has been filed with the Commission reflecting the Company’s status as a “non-shell company,” incorporated by reference as filed with the Commission on Form 8-K on January 6, 2012.

14
 

 

Pursuant to Rule 144, a one year waiting period from the time of filing was required to “cure” the Company’s previous “shell” status. Our “shell” status was thus cured on January 6, 2013 and shareholders of the Company who hold and purchase in the future any restricted securities of the Company will have Rule 144 available if all other requirements of the rule are met.

 

We Rely Upon Key Personnel And If They Leave Us, Our Business Plan And Results Of Operations Could Be Adversely Affected.

 

We rely heavily on our Chief Executive Officer and Director, Floyd L. Smith (“Mr. Smith”). His experience and input creates the foundation for our business and he is responsible for the directorship and control over our operations. We do currently have an employment agreement with Mr. Smith (as described above), and we put into place a "key man" insurance policy on Mr. Smith in the amount of $3,000,000. Moving forward, should we lose the services of Mr. Smith, for any reason, we will incur costs associated with recruiting a replacement and delays in our operations. If we are unable to replace Mr. Smith with another suitably trained individual or individuals, we may be forced to scale back or curtail our business plan. As a result of this, your investment in us could become devalued or worthless and we may be forced to abandon or change our business plan.

 

Our Management Lacks Experience In and With Publicly-Traded Companies.

 

While we rely heavily on Floyd L. Smith, our Chief Executive Officer, President, Chief Financial Officer, Secretary, Treasurer and Director and our other Director, David Knepper, they have no experience serving as an officer or Director of a publicly-traded company, or experience with the reporting requirements which public companies are subject to. Consequently, our operations, earnings and ultimate financial success could suffer irreparable harm due to their ultimate lack of experience with publicly-traded companies in general.

 

Our Insurance Coverage May Be Inadequate To Insure Against All Material Risks.

 

Moving forward, we plan to acquire insurance against some, but not all of the potential risks and losses our operations are subject to. There can be no assurance that insurance obtained by us will be adequate to and/or in sufficient amounts necessary to cover all losses or liabilities. The occurrence of a significant event, not fully insured or indemnified against, could have materially adverse effects on our financial condition and operations, which could lead to any investment in the Company becoming worthless.

 

We May Not Be Able To Successfully Manage Our Growth, Which Could Lead To Our Inability To Implement Our Business Plan.

 

Our growth is expected to place a significant strain on our managerial, operational and financial resources, especially considering that we currently only have two Directors and one executive officer. Further, as we enter into additional contracts, we will be required to manage multiple relationships with various consultants, businesses and other third parties. These requirements will be exacerbated in the event of our further growth. There can be no assurance that our systems, procedures and/or controls will be adequate to support our operations or that our management will be able to achieve the rapid execution necessary to successfully implement our business plan. If we are unable to manage our growth effectively, our business, results of operations and financial condition will be adversely affected, which could lead to us being forced to abandon or curtail our business plan and operations.

 

We Have A Limited Operating History In Our Current Business Focus Of Oil And Gas Production And Because Of This It May Be Difficult To Evaluate Our Chances For Success.

 

We were formed in June 2007 as a company specializing in restaurant consulting and investment activities; provided that we only generated limited revenues in connection with such operations, and changed our business focus to oil and gas exploration activities in connection with our acquisition by Petron Special in August 2011 (described above). As such, we have a limited history in our current business focus of oil and gas exploration. We are a relatively new company and, as such, run a risk of not being able to compete in the marketplace because of our relatively short existence. New companies in the competitive environment of oil and gas exploration may face significant competition, and as a result, we may be forced to abandon or curtail our business plan. Under such a circumstance, the value of any investment in us may become worthless.

 

15
 

We Incur Significant Increased Costs As A Result Of Operating As A Fully Reporting Company As Well As In Connection With Section 404 Of The Sarbanes Oxley Act.

 

We incur legal, accounting and other expenses in connection with our status as a fully reporting public company. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (the " Sarbanes-Oxley Act ") and rules subsequently implemented by the SEC have imposed various requirements on public companies, including requiring changes in corporate governance practices. As such, our management and other personnel need to devote a substantial amount of time to these compliance initiatives. Moreover, these rules and regulations increase our legal and financial compliance costs and make some activities more time-consuming and costly. The Sarbanes-Oxley Act requires, among other things, that we maintain effective internal controls for financial reporting and disclosure of controls and procedures. In particular, we must perform system and process evaluation and testing of our internal controls over financial reporting to allow management to report on the effectiveness of our internal controls over financial reporting. Our testing may reveal deficiencies in our internal controls over financial reporting that are deemed to be material weaknesses. Our compliance with Section 404 and our continued status as a publicly reporting company will require that we incur substantial accounting, legal and filing expenses and expend significant management efforts. We currently do not have an internal audit group, and we may need to hire additional accounting and financial staff with appropriate public company experience and technical accounting knowledge. Moreover, if we are not able to comply with the requirements of Section 404 in a timely manner, the market price of our stock could decline, and we could be subject to sanctions or investigations by the SEC or other regulatory authorities, which would require additional financial and management resources.

 

Our Articles Of Incorporation, As Amended, And Bylaws Limit The Liability Of, And Provide Indemnification For, Our Officers And Directors.

 

Our Articles of Incorporation, as amended, generally limit our officers' and Directors' personal liability to the Company and its stockholders for breach of fiduciary duty as an officer or Director except for breach of the duty of loyalty or acts or omissions not made in good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or a knowing violation of law. Our Articles of Incorporation, as amended, and Bylaws provide indemnification for our officers and Directors to the fullest extent authorized by the Nevada General Corporation Law against all expense, liability, and loss, including attorney's fees, judgments, fines excise taxes or penalties and amounts to be paid in settlement reasonably incurred or suffered by an officer or Director in connection with any action, suit or proceeding, whether civil or criminal, administrative or investigative (hereinafter a " Proceeding ") to which the officer or Director is made a party or is threatened to be made a party, or in which the officer or Director is involved by reason of the fact that he is or was an officer or Director of the Company, or is or was serving at the request of the Company as an officer or director of another corporation or of a partnership, joint venture, trust or other enterprise whether the basis of the Proceeding is an alleged action in an official capacity as an officer or Director, or in any other capacity while serving as an officer or Director. Thus, the Company may be prevented from recovering damages for certain alleged errors or omissions by the officers and Directors for liabilities incurred in connection with their good faith acts for the Company. Such an indemnification payment might deplete the Company's assets. Stockholders who have questions regarding the fiduciary obligations of the officers and Directors of the Company should consult with independent legal counsel. It is the position of the Securities and Exchange Commission that exculpation from and indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and the rules and regulations thereunder is against public policy and therefore unenforceable.

 

Risks Relating To The Oil And Gas Operations Of The Company

 

Oil, Gas And Natural Gas Liquid Prices Are Volatile.

 

We anticipate that our future financial results will be highly dependent on the general supply and demand for oil, gas and natural gas liquids (“NGLs”), which will impact the prices we ultimately realize on our future sales of these commodities. A significant downward movement of the prices for these commodities could have a material adverse effect on our future revenues, operating cash flows and profitability. Such a downward price movement could also have a material adverse effect on our future estimated proved reserves, the carrying value of our future oil and gas properties, the level of planned drilling activities and future growth. Historically, market prices have been volatile and are likely to continue to be volatile in the future due to numerous factors beyond our control. These factors include, but are not limited to:

16
 

 

  •  consumer demand for oil, gas and NGLs;
     
  •  conservation efforts;
     
  •  OPEC production levels;
     
  •  weather;
     
  •  regional pricing differentials;
     
  •  differing quality of oil produced (i.e., sweet crude versus heavy or sour crude);
     
  •  differing quality and NGL content of gas produced;
     
  •  the level of imports and exports of oil, gas and NGLs;
     
  •  the price and availability of alternative fuels;
     
  •  the overall economic environment; and
     
  •  Governmental regulations and taxes.

 

Estimates Of Oil, Gas And NGL Reserves Are Uncertain.

 

The process of estimating oil, gas and NGL reserves is complex and requires significant judgment in the evaluation of available geological, engineering and economic data for each reservoir, particularly for new discoveries. Because of the high degree of judgment involved, different reserve engineers may develop different estimates of reserve quantities and related revenue based on the same data. In addition, the reserve estimates for a given reservoir may change substantially over time as a result of several factors including additional development activity, the viability of production under varying economic conditions and variations in production levels and associated costs. Consequently, material revisions to our future reserve estimates may occur as a result of changes in any of these factors. Such revisions to reserves could have a material adverse effect on our future estimates of future net revenue, as well as our financial condition and profitability.

 

Discoveries Or Acquisitions Of Additional Reserves Will Be Needed To Avoid A Material Decline In Future Reserves And Production.

 

The production rates from oil and gas properties generally decline as reserves are depleted, while related per unit production costs generally increase, due to decreasing reservoir pressures and other factors. Therefore, we anticipate our future estimated proved reserves and future oil, gas and NGL production will decline materially as future reserves are produced unless we conduct successful exploration and development activities or, unless we identify additional producing zones in existing wells, secondary or tertiary recovery techniques, or acquire additional properties containing proved reserves. Consequently, our future oil, gas and NGL production and related per unit production costs will be highly dependent upon our level of success in finding or acquiring additional reserves.

 

Future Exploration And Drilling Results Are Uncertain And Involve Substantial Costs.

 

Substantial costs are often required to locate and acquire properties and drill exploratory wells. Such activities are subject to numerous risks, including the risk that we will not encounter commercially productive oil or gas reservoirs. The costs of drilling and completing wells are often uncertain. In addition, oil and gas properties can become damaged or drilling operations may be curtailed, delayed or canceled as a result of a variety of factors including, but not limited to:

17
 

 

  •  unexpected drilling conditions;
     
  •  pressure or irregularities in reservoir formations;
     
  •  equipment failures or accidents;
     
  •  fires, explosions, blowouts and surface cratering;
     
  •  adverse weather conditions;
     
  •  lack of access to pipelines or other transportation methods;
     
  •  environmental hazards or liabilities; and
     
  •  Shortages or delays in the availability of services or delivery of equipment.

 

A significant occurrence of one of these factors could result in a partial or total loss of our future investment in a particular property. In addition, drilling activities may not be successful in establishing proved reserves. Such a failure could have an adverse effect on our future results of operations and financial condition. While both exploratory and developmental drilling activities involve these risks, exploratory drilling involves greater risks of dry holes or failure to find commercial quantities of hydrocarbons.

 

Industry Competition For Leases, Materials, People And Capital Can Be Significant.

 

Strong competition exists in all sectors of the oil and gas industry. We plan to compete with major integrated and other independent oil and gas companies for the acquisition of oil and gas leases and properties. We also plan to compete for the equipment and personnel required to explore, develop and operate properties. Competition is also prevalent in the marketing of oil, gas and NGLs. Typically, during times of high or rising commodity prices, drilling and operating costs will also increase. Higher prices will also generally increase the costs of properties available for acquisition. Our competitors have financial and other resources substantially larger than ours. They also may have established strategic long-term positions and relationships in areas in which we may seek new entry. As a consequence, we may be at a competitive disadvantage in bidding for properties. In addition, many of our larger competitors may have a competitive advantage when responding to factors that affect demand for oil and gas production, such as changing worldwide price and production levels, the cost and availability of alternative fuels, and the application of government regulations.

 

Public Policy, Which Includes Laws, Rules and Regulations, Can Change.

 

Our planned operations are subject to federal laws, rules and regulations in the United States. In addition, we will also be subject to the laws and regulations of various states and local governments. Pursuant to public policy changes, numerous government departments and agencies have issued extensive rules and regulations binding on the oil and gas industry and its individual members, some of which carry substantial penalties for failure to comply. Changes in such public policies could affect our planned operations. Political developments can restrict production levels, enact price controls, change environmental protection requirements, and increase taxes, royalties and other amounts payable to governments or governmental agencies. Existing laws and regulations can also require us to incur substantial costs to maintain regulatory compliance. Our future projected operating and other compliance costs could increase if existing laws and regulations are revised or reinterpreted or if new laws and regulations become applicable to our operations. Although we are unable to predict changes to existing laws and regulations, such changes could significantly impact our future profitability, financial condition and liquidity, particularly changes related to hydraulic fracturing, income taxes and climate change as discussed below.

 

Hydraulic Fracturing— The U.S. Congress is currently considering legislation to amend the federal Safe Drinking Water Act to require the disclosure of chemicals used by the oil and natural-gas industry in the hydraulic-fracturing process. Currently, regulation of hydraulic fracturing is primarily conducted at the state level through permitting and other compliance requirements. This legislation, if adopted, could establish an additional level of regulation and permitting at the federal level.

 

18
 

Income Taxes— The U.S. President’s recent budget proposals include provisions that would, if enacted, make significant changes to United States tax laws. The most significant change would eliminate the immediate deduction for intangible drilling and development costs.

 

Climate Change— Policy makers in the United States are increasingly focusing on whether the emissions of greenhouse gases, such as carbon dioxide and methane, are contributing to harmful climatic changes. Policy makers at both the United States federal and state level have introduced legislation and proposed new regulations that are designed to quantify and limit the emission of greenhouse gases through inventories and limitations on greenhouse gas emissions. Legislative initiatives to date have focused on the development of cap-and-trade programs. These programs generally would cap overall greenhouse gas emissions on an economy-wide basis and require major sources of greenhouse gas emissions or major fuel producers to acquire and surrender emission allowances. Cap-and-trade programs would be relevant to our planned operations because the equipment we plan to use to explore for, develop, produce and process oil and natural gas emits greenhouse gases. Additionally, the combustion of carbon-based fuels, such as the oil, gas and NGLs we plan to sell, emits carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases.

 

We Will Incur Certain Costs To Comply With Government Regulations, Particularly Regulations Relating To Environmental Protection And Safety, And Could Incur Even Greater Costs In The Future.

 

Our exploration, production and marketing operations are regulated extensively at the federal, state and local levels and are subject to interruption or termination by governmental and regulatory authorities based on environmental or other considerations. Moreover, we have incurred and will continue to incur costs in our efforts to comply with the requirements of environmental, safety and other regulations. Further, the regulatory environment in the oil and gas industry could change in ways that we cannot predict and that might substantially increase our costs of compliance and, in turn, materially and adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.

   

Specifically, as an owner or lessee and operator of crude oil and natural gas properties, we are subject to various federal, state, and local regulations relating to the discharge of materials into, and the protection of, the environment. These regulations may, among other things, impose liability on us for the cost of pollution cleanup resulting from operations, subject us to liability for pollution damages and require suspension or cessation of operations in affected areas. Moreover, we are subject to the United States (U.S.) Environmental Protection Agency's (U.S. EPA) rule requiring annual reporting of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Changes in, or additions to, these regulations could lead to increased operating and compliance costs and, in turn, materially and adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.

 

We are aware of the increasing focus of local, state, national and international regulatory bodies on GHG emissions and climate change issues. In addition to the U.S. EPA's rule requiring annual reporting of GHG emissions, we are also aware of legislation proposed by U.S. lawmakers to reduce GHG emissions.

 

Additionally, there have been various proposals to regulate hydraulic fracturing at the federal level. Currently, the regulation of hydraulic fracturing is primarily conducted at the state level through permitting and other compliance requirements. Any new federal regulations that may be imposed on hydraulic fracturing could result in additional permitting and disclosure requirements (such as the reporting and public disclosure of the chemical additives used in the fracturing process) and in additional operating restrictions. In addition to the possible federal regulation of hydraulic fracturing, some states and local governments have considered imposing various conditions and restrictions on drilling and completion operations, including requirements regarding casing and cementing of wells, testing of nearby water wells, restrictions on the access to and usage of water and restrictions on the type of chemical additives that may be used in hydraulic fracturing operations. Such federal and state permitting and disclosure requirements and operating restrictions and conditions could lead to operational delays and increased operating and compliance costs and, moreover, could delay or effectively prevent the development of crude oil and natural gas from formations which would not be economically viable without the use of hydraulic fracturing.

 

We will continue to monitor and assess any new policies, legislation, regulations and treaties in the areas where we operate to determine the impact on our operations and take appropriate actions, where necessary. We are unable to predict the timing, scope and effect of any currently proposed or future laws, regulations or treaties, but the direct and indirect costs of such laws, regulations and treaties (if enacted) could materially and adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.

19
 

 

Environmental Matters And Costs Can Be Significant.

 

As an owner, lessee or operator of oil and gas properties, we will be subject to various federal, state, provincial, tribal and local laws and regulations relating to discharge of materials into, and protection of, the environment. These laws and regulations may, among other things, impose liability on us for the cost of pollution clean-up resulting from our operations in affected areas. Any future environmental costs of fulfilling our commitments to the environment are uncertain and will be governed by several factors, including future changes to regulatory requirements. There is no assurance that changes in or additions to public policy regarding the protection of the environment will not have a significant impact on our planned operations and profitability.

 

Insurance Does Not Cover All Risks.

 

Exploration, development, production and processing of oil, gas and NGLs can be hazardous and involve unforeseen occurrence including, but not limited to blowouts, cratering, fires and loss of well control. These occurrences can result in damage to or destruction of wells or production facilities, injury to persons, loss of life, or damage to property or the environment. We plan to maintain insurance against certain losses or liabilities in accordance with customary industry practices and in amounts that management believes to be prudent. However, insurance against all operational risks will not be available to us.

 

Because Of The Inherent Dangers Involved In Oil And Gas Exploration, There Is A Risk That We May Incur Liability Or Damages As We Conduct Our Business Operations, Which Could Force Us To Expend A Substantial Amount Of Money In Connection With Litigation And/or A Settlement.

 

The oil and natural gas business involves a variety of operating hazards and risks such as well blowouts, pipe failures, casing collapse, explosions, uncontrollable flows of oil, natural gas or well fluids, fires, spills, pollution, releases of toxic gas and other environmental hazards and risks. These hazards and risks could result in substantial losses to us from, among other things, injury or loss of life, severe damage to or destruction of property, natural resources and equipment, pollution or other environmental damage, cleanup responsibilities, regulatory investigation and penalties and suspension of operations. In addition, we may be liable for environmental damages caused by previous owners of property purchased and/or leased by us. As a result, substantial liabilities to third parties or governmental entities may be incurred, the payment of which could reduce or eliminate the funds available for the purchase of properties and/or property interests, exploration, development or acquisitions or result in the loss of properties and/or force us to expend substantial monies in connection with litigation or settlements. As such, there can be no assurance that any insurance obtained by us in the future will be adequate to cover any losses or liabilities. We cannot predict the availability of insurance or the availability of insurance at premium levels that justify our purchase. The occurrence of a significant event not fully insured or indemnified against could materially and adversely affect our financial condition and operations. We may elect to self-insure if management believes that the cost of insurance, although available, is excessive relative to the risks presented. In addition, pollution and environmental risks generally are not fully insurable. The occurrence of an event not fully covered by insurance could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations, which could lead to any investment in us becoming worthless.

   

Risks Relating To Our Securities

 

We Have Not And Do Not Anticipate Paying Any Cash Dividends On Our Common Stock And Because Of This Our Securities Could Face Devaluation In The Market.

 

We have paid no cash dividends on our common stock to date and it is not anticipated that any cash dividends will be paid to holders of our common stock in the foreseeable future. While our dividend policy will be based on the operating results and capital needs of our business operations, it is anticipated that any earnings will be retained to finance our business operations and future expansion.

 

The Market For Our Common Stock Will Be Subject To Fluctuations.

 

Our common stock is quoted on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board (the “OTCBB”) under the symbol “PEII”. We anticipate the market for our common stock on the OTCBB to be subject to fluctuations in response to several factors, including, but not limited to:

20
 

 

(1) actual or anticipated variations in our results of operations;
   
(2) our ability to generate revenues;

 

(3) conditions and trends in the market for oil and natural gas; and
   
(4) future acquisitions we may make.

 

Furthermore, our stock price may be impacted by factors that are unrelated or disproportionate to our operating performance. These market fluctuations, as well as general economic, political and market conditions, such as recessions, interest rates, or government regulations may adversely affect the market price and liquidity of our common stock.

 

If We Are Late In Filing Our Quarterly Or Annual Reports With The Securities And Exchange Commission Or A Market Maker Fails To Quote Our Common Stock On The Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board For A Period Of More Than Four Days, We May Be De-Listed From The Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board.

 

Pursuant to Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board ("OTCBB") rules relating to the timely filing of periodic reports with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), any OTCBB issuer which fails to file a periodic report (Form 10-Q or 10-K) by the due date of such report (not withstanding any extension granted to the issuer by the filing of a Form 12b-25), three times during any 24 month period is automatically de-listed from the OTCBB. Such removed issuer would not be re-eligible to be listed on the OTCBB for a period of one year, during which time any subsequent late filing would reset the one-year period of de-listing. Additionally, if a market maker fails to quote our common stock on the OTCBB for a period of more than four consecutive days, we will be automatically delisted from the OTCBB. If we are late in our filings three times in any 24 month period and are de-listed from the OTCBB or are automatically delisted for failure of a market maker to quote our stock, our securities may become worthless and we may be forced to curtail or abandon our business plan.

 

Investors May Face Significant Restrictions On The Resale Of Our Common Stock Due To Federal Regulations Of Penny Stocks.

 

Our common stock will be subject to the requirements of Rule 15g-9, promulgated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, as long as the price of our common stock is below $5.00 per share. Under such rule, broker-dealers who recommend low-priced securities to persons other than established customers and accredited investors must satisfy special sales practice requirements, including a requirement that they make an individualized written suitability determination for the purchaser and receive the purchaser's consent prior to the transaction. The Securities Enforcement Remedies and Penny Stock Reform Act of 1990, also requires additional disclosure in connection with any trades involving a stock defined as a penny stock. Generally, the Commission defines a penny stock as any equity security not traded on an exchange or quoted on NASDAQ that has a market price of less than $5.00 per share. The required penny stock disclosures include the delivery, prior to any transaction, of a disclosure schedule explaining the penny stock market and the risks associated with it. Such requirements could severely limit the market liquidity of the securities and the ability of purchasers to sell their securities in the secondary market.

 

State Securities Laws May Limit Secondary Trading, Which May Restrict The States In Which And Conditions Under Which You Can Sell Shares.

 

Secondary trading in our common stock may not be possible in any state until the common stock is qualified for sale under the applicable securities laws of the state or there is confirmation that an exemption, such as listing in certain recognized securities manuals, is available for secondary trading in the state. If we fail to register or qualify, or to obtain or verify an exemption for the secondary trading of, the common stock in any particular state, the common stock could not be offered or sold to, or purchased by, a resident of that state. In the event that a significant number of states refuse to permit secondary trading in our common stock, the liquidity for the common stock could be significantly impacted.

 

21
 

Because We Are Not Subject To Compliance With Rules Requiring The Adoption Of Certain Corporate Governance Measures, Our Stockholders Have Limited Protections Against Interested Director Transactions, Conflicts Of Interest And Similar Matters.

 

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, as well as rule changes proposed and enacted by the SEC, the New York and American Stock Exchanges and the Nasdaq Stock Market, as a result of Sarbanes-Oxley, require the implementation of various measures relating to corporate governance. These measures are designed to enhance the integrity of corporate management and the securities markets and apply to securities that are listed on those exchanges or the Nasdaq Stock Market. Because we are not presently required to comply with many of the corporate governance provisions and because we chose to avoid incurring the substantial additional costs associated with such compliance any sooner than legally required, we have not yet adopted these measures.

 

We do not currently have an independent audit or compensation committee. As a result, our Directors have the ability to, among other things; determine their own level of compensation. Until we comply with such corporate governance measures, regardless of whether such compliance is required, the absence of such standards of corporate governance may leave our stockholders without protections against interested director transactions, conflicts of interest, if any, and similar matters and any potential investors may be reluctant to provide us with funds necessary to expand our operations.

 

We intend to comply with all corporate governance measures relating to Director independence as and when required. However, we may find it very difficult or be unable to attract and retain qualified officers, Directors and members of board committees required to provide for our effective management as a result of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002. The enactment of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 has resulted in a series of rules and regulations by the SEC that increase responsibilities and liabilities of Directors and executive officers. The perceived increased personal risk associated with these recent changes may make it more costly or deter qualified individuals from accepting these roles.

 

Nevada Law And Our Articles Of Incorporation Authorize Us To Issue Shares Of Stock, Which Shares May Cause Substantial Dilution To Our Existing Shareholders.

 

We have authorized capital stock consisting of 1,000,000,000 shares of common stock, $0.001 par value per share and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, $0.001 par value per share. As of December 31, 2012, we had 11,976,942 shares of common stock outstanding, 1,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock issued and outstanding, and 5,910,000 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred stock issued and outstanding (at March 31, 2013, we had 1,787,012 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock issued and outstanding). As a result, our Board of Directors has the ability to issue a large number of additional shares of common stock without shareholder approval, which if issued could cause substantial dilution to our then shareholders. Additionally, shares of preferred stock may be issued by our Board of Directors without shareholder approval with voting powers, and such preferences and relative, participating, optional or other special rights and powers as determined by our Board of Directors, which may be greater than the shares of common stock currently outstanding. As a result, shares of preferred stock may be issued by our Board of Directors which cause the holders to have super majority voting power over our shares (similar to the Shares A Preferred Stock previously issued by the Board of Directors), provide the holders of the preferred stock the right to convert the shares of preferred stock they hold into shares of our common stock, which may cause substantial dilution to our then common stock shareholders and/or have other rights and preferences greater than those of our common stock shareholders. Investors should keep in mind that the Board of Directors has the authority to issue additional shares of common stock and preferred stock, which could cause substantial dilution to our existing shareholders. Additionally, the dilutive effect of any preferred stock, which we may issue may be exacerbated given the fact that such preferred stock may have super majority voting rights (similar to the Series A Preferred Stock already issued and outstanding) and/or other rights or preferences which could provide the preferred shareholders with voting control over us subsequent to this filing and/or give those holders the power to prevent or cause a change in control. As a result, the issuance of shares of common stock and/or Preferred Stock may cause the value of our securities to decrease and/or become worthless.

 

ITEM 1B. UNRESOLVED STAFF COMMENTS

 

As a “smaller reporting company,” as defined in Rule 12b-2 of the Exchange Act, the Company is not required to provide the information called for by this Item.

 

ITEM 2. PROPERTIES

 

We currently lease office space under a five (5) year lease encompassing approximate 3000 feet of space. Our offices are at 17950 Preston Road, Suite 960, Dallas, Texas 75252.

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

From time to time, the Company may become subject to various legal proceedings that are incidental to the ordinary conduct of its business. Although the Company cannot accurately predict the amount of any liability that may ultimately arise with respect to any of these matters, it makes provision for potential liabilities when it deems them probable and reasonably estimable. These provisions are based on current information and legal advice and may be adjusted from time to time according to developments.

 

On November 21, 2012, ASL Energy Corp. (“ASL Energy”) filed a Complaint against the Company and Floyd Smith, our Chief Executive Officer, in the District Court of Dallas County, Texas to enforce certain terms of the Management Service Agreement (the “MSA”) entered into by and between ASL Energy, LLC and Petron Energy Special Corp. dated August 8, 2011. ASL Energy alleges that the Company owes ASL Energy a total of $28,697. Although the parties are currently engaged in settlement negotiations regarding this matter, the Company plans to aggressively defend against any claims made by ASL Energy against the Company and will not fail to assert the Company’s legal and equitable rights in any court of law. A judgment has yet to be entered on the matter.

 

On November 27, 2012, ASL Energy Corp. (“ASL Energy”) filed a Complaint against the Company in the District Court of Dallas County, Texas to enforce certain terms of the Convertible Note Issuance Agreement (the “Note”) entered into by and between ASL Energy and the Company dated August 9, 2012. ASL Energy alleges that the Company owes ASL Energy a total of $65,000. Although the parties are currently engaged in settlement negotiations regarding this matter, the Company plans to aggressively defend against any claims made by ASL Energy against the Company and will not fail to assert the Company’s legal and equitable rights in any court of law. A judgment has yet to be entered on the matter.

 

Other than the foregoing, we know of no material, existing or pending legal proceedings against our Company, nor are we involved as a plaintiff in any material proceeding or pending litigation. There are no proceedings in which our director, officer or any affiliates, or any registered or beneficial shareholder, is an adverse party or has a material interest adverse to our interest.

 

ITEM 4. MINE SAFETY DISCLOSURES

 

Not applicable.

 

PART II

 

ITEM 5. MARKET FOR REGISTRANT’S COMMON EQUITY, RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS AND ISSUER PURCHASES OF EQUITY SECURITIES

 

In October 2009, we obtained quotation for our common stock on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board (“ OTCBB ”) under the symbol RCNC.OB; however, our common stock was subsequently delisted from the OTCBB due to our failure to timely file our Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the period ended February 28, 2011 on May 23, 2011. Our common stock was re-quoted on the OTCBB effective on August 9, 2011. On October 17, 2011, in connection with the effectiveness of the 100:1 forward stock-split affected pursuant to the Amendment described above, the Company’s trading symbol on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board changed to RCNCD.OB, and on November 29, 2011, the Company’s symbol on the Over-The-Counter Bulletin Board changed to PEII.OB.

23
 

 

On December 27, 2012, the Company effectuated a reverse split (the “Reverse Split”) of its issued common shares whereby every ten (10) pre-split shares of common stock were exchanged for one (1) post-split share of the Company's common stock.  As a result, the total issued shares of common stock of the Company decreased from One Hundred Twenty Million Two Hundred Thirty Thousand Six Hundred and Eighty Eight (120,230,688) shares prior to the Reverse Split to Twelve Million Twenty Three Thousand and Sixty Nine (12,023,069) shares following the Reverse Split.  FINRA confirmed approval of the Reverse Split on December 20, 2012 and the Reverse Split became effective on December 27, 2012.    

 

The Company's common stock is considered a "penny stock" as defined in the Commission's rules promulgated under the Exchange Act. The Commission's rules regarding penny stocks impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers who sell such securities to persons other than established customers and accredited investors (generally persons with net worth in excess of $1,000,000 (excluding their principal residence) or an annual income exceeding $200,000 or $300,000 jointly with their spouse). For transactions covered by the rules, the broker-dealer must make a special suitability determination for the purchaser and receive the purchaser's written agreement to the transaction prior to the sale. Thus the Rules affect the ability of broker-dealers to sell the Company's shares should they wish to do so because of the adverse effect that the Rules have upon liquidity of penny stocks. Unless the transaction is exempt under the Rules, under the Securities Enforcement Remedies and Penny Stock Reform Act of 1990, broker-dealers effecting customer transactions in penny stocks are required to provide their customers with (i) a risk disclosure document; (ii) disclosure of current bid and ask quotations if any; (iii) disclosure of the compensation of the broker-dealer and its sales personnel in the transaction; and (iv) monthly account statements showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer's account. As a result of the penny stock rules, the market liquidity for the Company's securities may be severely adversely affected by limiting the ability of broker-dealers to sell the Company's securities and the ability of purchasers of the securities to resell them.

 

DESCRIPTION OF CAPITAL STOCK

 

We have authorized capital stock consisting of 1,000,000,000 shares of common stock, $0.001 par value per share (“Common Stock”) and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, $0.001 par value per share (“Preferred Stock”).

 

Common Stock

 

The holders of outstanding shares of Common Stock are entitled to receive dividends out of assets or funds legally available for the payment of dividends of such times and in such amounts as the board from time to time may determine. Holders of Common Stock are entitled to one vote for each share held on all matters submitted to a vote of shareholders. There is no cumulative voting of the election of directors then standing for election. The Common Stock is not entitled to pre-emptive rights and is not subject to conversion or redemption. Upon liquidation, dissolution or winding up of our company, the assets legally available for distribution to stockholders are distributable ratably among the holders of the Common Stock after payment of liquidation preferences, if any, on any outstanding payment of other claims of creditors. Each outstanding share of Common Stock is, and all shares of Common Stock to be outstanding upon completion of this Offering will upon payment therefore be, duly and validly issued, fully paid and non-assessable.

 

Preferred Stock

 

Shares of Preferred Stock may be issued from time to time in one or more series, each of which shall have such distinctive designation or title as shall be determined by our Board of Directors (“Board of Directors ”) prior to the issuance of any shares thereof. Preferred Stock shall have such voting powers, full or limited, or no voting powers, and such preferences and relative, participating, optional or other special rights and such qualifications, limitations or restrictions thereof, as shall be stated in such resolution or resolutions providing for the issue of such class or series of Preferred Stock as may be adopted from time to time by the Board of Directors prior to the issuance of any shares thereof. The number of authorized shares of Preferred Stock may be increased or decreased (but not below the number of shares thereof then outstanding) by the affirmative vote of the holders of a majority of the voting power of all the then outstanding shares of our capital stock entitled to vote generally in the election of the directors, voting together as a single class, without a separate vote of the holders of the Preferred Stock, or any series thereof, unless a vote of any such holders is required pursuant to any Preferred Stock Designation.

 

24
 

Series “A” Preferred Stock

 

The designation of 1,000 shares of the Company’s Series A Preferred Stock was approved by the Company’s Board of Directors on September 7, 2011 and a Certificate of Designations reflecting such Series A Preferred Stock was filed with the Secretary of State of Nevada on September 8, 2011. The Series A Preferred Stock provides the holder thereof, Floyd L. Smith, the right, voting separately as a class, to vote in aggregate 51% of our outstanding voting shares on any and all shareholder matters (the “ Super Majority Voting Rights ”).

 

Additionally, the Company shall not adopt any amendments to the Company's Bylaws, Articles of Incorporation, as amended, make any changes to the Certificate of Designations establishing the Series A Preferred Stock, or effect any reclassification of the Series A Preferred Stock, without the affirmative vote of at least 66-2/3% of the outstanding shares of Series A Preferred Stock. However, the Company may, by any means authorized by law and without any vote of the holders of shares of Series A Preferred Stock, make technical, corrective, administrative or similar changes to such Certificate of Designations that do not, individually or in the aggregate, adversely affect the rights or preferences of the holders of shares of Series A Preferred Stock.

 

The Series A Preferred Stock also includes a provision which provides that in the event that Mr. Smith dies or becomes disabled within eighteen months of the issuance date of the Series A Preferred Stock to Mr. Smith, that ASL Energy Corp. and or its assigns shall have the right, with 61 days prior written notice to the Company to assume the ownership of and/or the rights associated with such shares of Series A Preferred Stock (the “Assignment Rights”). Other than the Super Majority Voting Rights, the Series A Preferred Stock does not have any other dividend, liquidation, conversion, or redemption rights, whatsoever.

 

The 1,000 shares of Series A Preferred stock were issued to Mr. Smith in connection with the entry into the Executive Employment Agreement described above.

 

The Series A Preferred Stock and the rights associated therewith, could act to prevent or delay a change in control.

 

Series “B” Preferred Stock

 

The Certificate of Designations designating 6,000,000 shares of the Company’s Series B Preferred Stock was filed with the Secretary of State of Nevada on February 17, 2012. 5,910,000 shares of the Company’s Series B Preferred Stock were issued pursuant to the Plan of Reorganization and Asset Purchase Agreement, described above. In 2013, 4,189,542 shares of the Series B Convertible stock converted into an aggregate of 19,255,145 shares of the common stock of the Company. At May 14, 2013, we had 1,720,458 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock issued and outstanding which had not converted because of the 9.99% ownership limitation set forth in the Certificate of Designation (the “Ownership Limitation”). The Series B Preferred Stock votes one-for-one with the common stock shares of the Company.

 

Equity Compensation Plans

 

The Company does not have any equity compensation plans in place, whether approved by the shareholders or not.

 

Warrants, Options and Convertible Securities

 

Floyd L. Smith, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, President and Director, owns Stock Options to purchase 12,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.0039 per share, which have a term of five years, expiring on August 31, 2016, which were issued to in connection with his entry into an Executive Employment Agreement with the Company (described above).

 

The shareholders receiving the Series B Preferred Stock pursuant to the Plan of Reorganization and Asset Purchase Agreement received warrants to purchase an aggregate of 10,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock with an exercise price of $0.08 per share.

25
 

 

Under the terms of a convertible note, an investor has the option, at any time before the note is paid, to convert the unpaid principal and accrued interest to common stock of the Company at a conversion price of $0.14 per share. This investor was also granted a common stock warrant at the time the note was issued for 100,000 (post-split) shares. The exercise price is $0.14 per share and the warrant expires on August 9, 2015.

 

Dividends

 

We have never declared or paid any cash dividends on our common stock, and we do not anticipate paying any dividends in the foreseeable future. We intend to devote any earnings to fund the operations and the development of our business.

 

RECENT SALES OF UNREGISTERED SECURITIES

 

During the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company sold an aggregate of 717,175 (post-split) shares of the Company’s restricted common stock to 43 “accredited investors” in private transactions for aggregate consideration of $838,326.

Effective February 09, 2012, the Company, pursuant to Section 368(a)(1)(c) of the United States Internal Revenue Code, adopted a plan of reorganization whereby they would be transferred all of the assets of OEI and its Affiliate Companies, as described in the agreement, to the Company in exchange for 5,910,000 shares of the Company’s Series B Convertible Preferred stock. We claimed an exemption from registration afforded by Section 4(2) and Rule 506 of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended since the foregoing issuances and grant did not involve a public offering, the recipients took the securities for investment and not resale and we took appropriate measures to restrict transfer. No underwriters or agents were involved in the foregoing issuances or grant and we paid no underwriting discounts or commissions.

 

ITEM 6. SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA

 

Not required pursuant to Item 301 of Regulation S-K.

  

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

The following summarizes the factors affecting the operating results and financial condition of Petron Energy II, Inc. This discussion should be read together with the financial statements of Petron Energy II, Inc. and the notes to financial statements included elsewhere in this annual report. In addition to historical financial information, the following discussion and analysis contain forward-looking statements that involve risks, uncertainties and assumptions. Our actual results and timing of selected events may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of many factors, including those discussed under “Risk Factors” and elsewhere in this report. We encourage you to review our “Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Statements and Industry Data” at the front of this current report, and our “Risk Factors” set forth above.

 

Plan of Operations:

 

As described above in connection with the closing of the Petron Asset Purchase Agreement and the acquisition of the Assets, the Company changed its business focus to oil and gas exploration and production and related operations and ceased undertaking any restaurant related operations as were contemplated by its previous business plan.

 

The Company acquired certain oil and gas properties owned by ONE Energy Capital Corp., ONE Energy International Corp. and their affiliated parties, pursuant to the One Energy Asset Acquisition Agreement and the Plan of Reorganization and Asset Purchase Agreement. We have also previously acquired rights to the Wagoner County Leases.

 

We anticipate that our operations will be supported by funds raised through the sale of debt or equity in the Company in private placement offerings through revenues generated from our oil and gas operations. We plan to raise approximately $10 million in private placements over the next twelve months; provided that we have not entered into any agreements regarding such funding (other than as described above in connection with the prior private placements) and such funding may not be available on favorable terms, if at all. We anticipate the need for a minimum of $2.5 million in additional funding to continue our operations for the next twelve months. Assuming we are successful in raising a minimum of $10 million subsequent to the date of this filing through the sale of debt or equity securities through private placements, we will use the proceeds to settle the Company’s amounts payable and to finalize the reworking of approximately 75-90 wells we acquired through the Asset Purchase Agreement, drill approximately 5–10 new wells in Oklahoma and acquire additional acreage. In the event that we are unsuccessful raising additional funds subsequent to the date hereof, we will move forward with our business plan and plan of operations in a scaled down form until such time that we can raise additional funds.

26
 

 

All existing wells which we acquired through the Petron Asset Purchase Agreement will need to be reworked to reestablish production. Although there are several targets available within these existing wells, oil pay zones will be our primary focus considering the higher price point in the oil market currently. The second priority will be gas pay zones, primarily because of very soft price points in the gas market.

 

Our long-term plan is to grow the Company at a rate of 5% per year via three approaches, 1) lease acquisition and development, 2) industry level participation through current industry partners, and 3) acquisitions of small operators in Texas and Oklahoma.

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS FOR THE YEAR ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2012

 

Revenues

 

Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $326,343 compared to $199,387 for the year ended December 31, 2011. This was an increase of $126,956.

 
Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2012 was $8,326,063 compared to $3,127,742 for the year ended December 31, 2011.  This is an increase of $5,198,321 of net loss from the year prior.
 

General and Administrative costs for the year ended December 31, 2012 were $1,736,427 compared to $2,938,568 for the year ended December 31, 2011.

 

Expenses

 

During the year ended December 31, 2012, total expenses were $8,652,406 which included cost of revenue of $538,616, depletion, depreciation and amortization expense of $186,014, impairment charge of $6,046,000, general and administrative expenses of $1,736,427 and interest expense of $145,349.

 

 LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

As of December 31, 2012, the current liabilities were $1,280,006 and the Company’s current assets were $35,421. Cash for the period ended December 31, 2012 was $17,089, compared to $106,850 on December 31, 2011, which represents a decrease of $89,761.  Effective April 16, 2013, we entered into a Credit Agreement with TCA Global Master Fund, LP (“TCA”). Under the terms of a credit agreement the Company has pledged all of its oil and gas assets as collateral. The Company makes requests for drawdowns periodically and the lender, in its sole discretion, will approve the requests. The funds are to be used for enhancing the oil and gas producing assets of the Company. The first draw, under terms of an 11% note payable due October 17, 2013 was received April 17, 2013 for $450,000. Other than stated herein, the Company does not have any current commitments for capital expenditures or any other commitments that would result in a change in cash flow or cash requirements for the next twelve months.

 

We anticipate that our operations will be supported by funds raised through the private placement offering described herein, through the sale of debt or equity in the Company in private placement offerings, and through the credit facility agreement with TCA. We hope to raise approximately $10 million in private placements over the next twelve months; provided that we have not entered into any agreements regarding such funding (other than as described above in connection with the prior private placements) and such funding may not be available on favorable terms, if at all. We anticipate the need for a minimum of $2.5 million in additional funding to continue our operations for the next twelve months. Assuming we are successful in raising a minimum of $10 million subsequent to the date of this filing through the sale of debt or equity securities through private placements, we will use the proceeds to finalize the reworking of approximately 75-90 wells we acquired through the Asset Purchase Agreement, drill approximately 5–10 new wells in Oklahoma and acquire additional acreage. In the event that we are unsuccessful raising additional funds subsequent to the date hereof, we will move forward with our business plan and plan of operations in a scaled down form until such time that we can raise additional funds.

27
 

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

 We have no significant off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to stockholders.

 

Contractual Obligations

 

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are not required to provide the information under this item.

 

Future Financings

 

We will continue to rely on equity sales of our common shares in order to continue to fund our business operations. Issuances of additional shares will result in dilution to existing stockholders. There is no assurance that we will achieve any additional sales of the equity securities or arrange for debt or other financing to fund our operations and other activities.

 

As stated above, effective April 16, 2013, we entered into a Credit Agreement with TCA Global Master Fund, LP (“TCA”). Under the terms of a credit agreement the Company has pledged all of its oil and gas assets as collateral. The Company makes requests for drawdowns periodically and the lender, in its sole discretion, will approve the requests. The funds are to be used for enhancing the oil and gas producing assets of the Company. The first draw, under terms of an 11% note payable due October 17, 2013 was received April 17, 2013 for $450,000. Other than stated herein, the Company does not have any current commitments for capital expenditures or any other commitments that would result in a change in cash flow or cash requirements for the next twelve months.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our financial statements and accompanying notes have been prepared in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles applied on a consistent basis. The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods.

 

We regularly evaluate the accounting policies and estimates that we use to prepare our financial statements. A complete summary of these policies is included in note 2 of the notes to our financial statements. In general, management's estimates are based on historical experience, information from third party professionals, and various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the facts and circumstances. Actual results could differ from those estimates made by management.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

The FASB established the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“Codification”) as the source of authoritative U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) recognized by the FASB to be applied by nongovernmental entities in the preparation of financial statements issued for interim and annual periods ending after September 15, 2009. The codification has changed the manner in which U.S. GAAP guidance is referenced, but did not have an impact on the consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows of the Company

 

In January 2010, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2010-06, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (Topic 820) — Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements.” This ASU requires some new disclosures and clarifies some existing disclosure requirements about fair value measurement as set forth in Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820. ASU 2010-06 amends ASC 820 to now require: (1) a reporting entity should disclose separately the amounts of significant transfers in and out of Level 1 and Level 2 fair value measurements and describe the reasons for the transfers; and (2) in the reconciliation for fair value measurements using significant unobservable inputs, a reporting entity should present separately information about purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements. In addition, ASU 2010-06 clarifies the requirements of existing disclosures. ASU 2010-06 is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2009, except for the disclosures about purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements in the roll forward of activity in Level 3 fair value measurements. Those disclosures are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2010, and for interim periods within those fiscal years. Early application is permitted. The Company will comply with the additional disclosures required by this guidance upon its adoption in January 2010.

 

Also in January 2010, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2010-03, “Extractive Activities—Oil and Gas—Oil and Gas Reserve Estimation and Disclosures.” This ASU amends the “Extractive Industries—Oil and Gas” Topic of the Codification to align the oil and gas reserve estimation and disclosure requirements in this Topic with the SEC’s Release No. 33-8995, “Modernization of Oil and Gas Reporting Requirements (Final Rule),” discussed below. The amendments are effective for annual reporting periods ending on or after December 31, 2009, and the adoption of these provisions on December 31, 2009 did not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

 

Oil and gas properties

 

The Company utilizes the full cost method to account for its investment in oil and gas properties. Accordingly, all costs associated with acquisition, exploration and development of oil and gas reserves, including such costs as leasehold acquisition costs, capitalized interest costs relating to unproved properties, geological expenditures, tangible and intangible development costs including direct internal costs are capitalized to the full cost pool. When the Company obtains proven oil and gas reserves, capitalized costs, including estimated future costs to develop the reserves and estimated abandonment costs, net of salvage, will be depleted on the units-of-production method using estimates of proved reserves.

28
 

 

Investments in unproved properties are not depleted pending determination of the existence of proved reserves. Unproved properties are assessed periodically to ascertain whether impairment has occurred. Unproved properties whose costs are individually significant are assessed individually by considering the primary lease terms of the properties, the holding period of the properties, and geographic and geologic data obtained relating to the properties. Where it is not practicable to assess individually the amount of impairment of properties for which costs are not individually significant, such properties are grouped for purposes of assessing impairment. The amount of impairment assessed is added to the costs to be amortized, or is reported as a period expense, as appropriate.

 

Pursuant to full cost accounting rules, the Company must perform a ceiling test periodically on its proved oil and gas assets. The ceiling test provides that capitalized costs less related accumulated depletion and deferred income taxes for each cost center may not exceed the sum of (1) the present value of future net revenue from estimated production of proved oil and gas reserves using current prices, excluding the future cash outflows associated with settling asset retirement obligations that have been accrued on the balance sheet, at a discount factor of 10%; plus (2) the cost of properties not being amortized, if any; plus (3) the lower of cost or estimated fair value of unproved properties included in the costs being amortized, if any; less (4) income tax effects related to differences in the book and tax basis of oil and gas properties. Should the net capitalized costs for a cost center exceed the sum of the components noted above, an impairment charge would be recognized to the extent of the excess capitalized costs.

 

Sales of proved and unproved properties are accounted for as adjustments of capitalized costs with no gain or loss recognized, unless such adjustments would significantly alter the relationship between capitalized costs and proved reserves of oil and gas, in which case the gain or loss is recognized in the statement of operations.

 

Exploration activities conducted jointly with others are reflected at the Company’s proportionate interest in such activities.

 

Cost related to site restoration programs are accrued over the life of the project.

 

Pipeline and Equipment

 

Depreciation is based on the estimated useful lives of the assets and is computed using the straight line method. Pipeline, trucks and equipment are recorded at cost. Depreciation is provided using the following useful lives:

  

 Pipeline   15 years
 Trucks and equipment   5—15 years

 

Stock-based compensation

  

The Company accounts for stock options in accordance with FASB ASC 505, “Equity,” and FASB ASC 718, “Compensation—stock Compensation. “Accordingly, stock compensation expense has been recognized in the statement of operations based on the grant date fair value of the options for the year ended December 31, 2012.

 

Under ASC 718 and 505, the fair value of options is estimated at the date of grant using a Black-Scholes-Merton (“Black-Scholes”) option-pricing model, which requires the input of highly subjective assumptions including the expected stock price volatility. Volatility is determined using historical stock prices over a period consistent with the expected term of the option. The Company utilizes the guidelines of Staff Accounting bulletin No. 107 (SAB 107) of the Securities and Exchange Commission relative to “plain vanilla” options in determining the expected term of options grants. SAB 107 permits the expected term of “plain vanilla” options to be calculated as the average of the option’s vesting term and contractual period.

29
 

 

The Company has used this method in determining the expected term of all options. At such time as the Company has options with graded vesting, the Company will recognize compensation cost for awards with graded vesting on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period for the entire award. The amount of compensation expense recognized at any date is at least equal to the portion of the grant date value of the award that is vested at that date. 

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Oil and gas revenues are recognized when oil and gas is produced and sold.

 

Earnings (loss) per share

 

Basic earnings (loss) per share are computed using the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period. The treasury stock method is used to determine the diluted effect of stock options and warrants. Diluted loss per share is equal to the basic loss per share for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 because common stock equivalents consisting of stock purchase warrants of 12,000,000 outstanding at December 31, 2011 and stock options outstanding at December 31, 2012, were anti-dilutive.

 

Income taxes

 

The Company recognizes deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in the Company’s financial statements or tax returns using the liability method. Under this method, deferred tax liabilities and assets are determined based on the temporary differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect in the year in which the differences are expected to reverse.

 

Long-Lived Assets Impairment

 

Long-term assets of the Company are reviewed for impairment when circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable in accordance with the guidance established in Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144 (SFAS 144) (ASC 360), Accounting for the impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets. For assets that are to be held and used, an impairment loss is recognized when the estimated undiscounted cash flows associated with the asset or group of assets is less than their carrying value. If impairment exists, an adjustment is made to write the asset down to its fair value. Fair values are determined based on discounted cash flows or internal and external appraisals, as applicable. Assets to be disposed of are carried at the lower of carrying value or estimated net realizable value. 

 

Asset Retirement Obligations

 

The Company accounts for asset retirement obligations in accordance with the provisions of SFAS 143 (ASC 410) “Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations”. SFAS 143 (ASC 410) requires the Company to record the fair value of an asset retirement obligation as a liability in the period in which it incurs a legal obligation associated with the retirement of tangible long-lived assets that result from the acquisition, construction, development and/or normal use of the assets. The Asset Retirement Obligation as of December 31, 2012 is $40,278, which is the most current asset retirement available at the time of this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Concentration of Credit Risk

 

The Company has financial instruments that are exposed to concentrations of credit risk and consist primarily of cash and trade accounts receivable. The Company routinely maintains cash and temporary cash investments at certain financial institutions in amounts substantially in excess of Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) insurance limits. Management believes that these financial institutions are of high quality and the risk of loss is minimal. 

30
 

 

Financial Instruments

 

The carrying amount of financial instruments including cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate fair value, unless otherwise stated as of the date of this current report.

 

Fair value estimates of financial instruments are made at the period end based on relevant information about financial markets and specific financial instruments. Because these estimates are subjective in nature, involving uncertainties and matters of significant judgment, they cannot be determined with precision. Changes in assumptions can significantly affect estimated fair value.

 

Contingencies

 

Certain conditions may exist as of the date the financial statements are issued, which may result in a loss to the Company, but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. Company management and legal counsel assess such contingent liabilities which inherently involves an exercise of judgment. In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against the Company, or unasserted claims that may result in such proceedings, the Company’s legal counsel evaluates the perceived merits of any legal proceedings or unasserted claims as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought therein.

 

If management determines that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, the estimated liability is accrued in the Company’s financial statements. If the assessment indicates that a potentially material loss contingency is not probable but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, then the nature of the contingent liability, together with an estimate of the range of possible loss if determinable and material, is disclosed.

 

Additional disclosure concerning subpart 1200 of Regulation S-K can be found in the Company’s financial statements and notes thereto are hereby incorporated by this reference to the Company’s most recent Quarterly Report for the period ended September 30, 2012, as filed on Form 10-Q with the SEC on January 7, 2013, and in this Annual Report for the year ended December 31, 2012.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

 

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of

Petron Energy II, Inc.

Dallas, TX 75252

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Petron Energy II, Inc. (a Nevada corporation) and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2012 and 2011, and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for the years then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.

 

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit includes consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall consolidated financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Petron Energy II, Inc. and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2012 and 2011 and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the years then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company’s significant operating losses since inception raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

PETRON ENERGY II, INC.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

December 31, 2012 and 2011

 

1. INCORPORATION AND NATURE OF OPERATIONS

Petron Energy II, Inc. (“Petron Energy” or the “Company”) is engaged primarily in the acquisition, development, production, exploration for and the sale of oil, gas and gas liquids in the United States. The Company was incorporated in August 2008 under the laws of the State of Nevada. As of December 31, 2012 the Company is operating in the states of Texas and Oklahoma. In addition, the Company operates two gas gathering systems located in Tulsa, Wagoner, Rogers and Mayes counties of Oklahoma. The pipeline consists of approximately 132 miles of steel and poly pipe, a gas processing plant and other ancillary equipment. The Company sells its oil and gas products primarily to a domestic pipeline and to another oil company.

2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of presentation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries:

Subsidiary Names
Petron Energy II Pipeline, Inc,
Petron Energy II Well Service, Inc

 

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles of the United States. All intercompany transactions and account balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

Going concern uncertainty

 

These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States applicable to a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business. The Company has incurred a net loss of $8,326,063 for the year ended December 31, 2012 (2011 - $3,127,742) and at December 31, 2012 had an accumulated deficit of $19,821,223 (2011 - $11,495,160). While the Company has recognized significant revenues from operations, the revenues generated are not sufficient to sustain operations. The Company does not have sufficient funds to acquire new business assets or maintain its existing operations at this time. Management’s plan is to raise equity and/or debt financing as required but there is no certainty that such financing will be available or that it will be available at acceptable terms. The outcome of these matters cannot be predicted at this time.

 

These financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

43
 

 

Accounting estimates

 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles of the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates and assumptions.

 

Cash and cash equivalents

 

Cash equivalents comprise certain highly liquid instruments with a maturity of three months or less when purchased. As of December 31, 2012 there were no cash equivalents.

 

Oil and gas properties

 

The Company utilizes the full cost method to account for its investment in oil and gas properties. Accordingly, all costs associated with acquisition, exploration and development of oil and gas reserves, including such costs as leasehold acquisition costs, capitalized interest costs relating to unproved properties, geological expenditures, tangible and intangible development costs including direct internal costs are capitalized to the full cost pool. When the Company obtains proven oil and gas reserves, capitalized costs, including estimated future costs to develop the reserves and estimated abandonment costs, net of salvage, will be depleted on the units-of-production method using estimates of proved reserves.

 

Investments in unproved properties are not depleted pending determination of the existence of proved reserves. Unproved properties are assessed periodically to ascertain whether impairment has occurred. Unproved properties whose costs are individually significant are assessed individually by considering the primary lease terms of the properties, the holding period of the properties, and geographic and geologic data obtained relating to the properties. Where it is not practicable to assess individually the amount of impairment of properties for which costs are not individually significant, such properties are grouped for purposes of assessing impairment. The amount of impairment assessed is added to the costs to be amortized, or is reported as a period expense, as appropriate.

 

Pursuant to full cost accounting rules, the Company must perform a ceiling test periodically on its proved oil and gas assets. The ceiling test provides that capitalized costs less related accumulated depletion and deferred income taxes for each cost center may not exceed the sum of (1) the present value of future net revenue from estimated production of proved oil and gas reserves using current prices, excluding the future cash outflows associated with settling asset retirement obligations that have been accrued on the balance sheet, at a discount factor of 10%; plus (2) the cost of properties not being amortized, if any; plus (3) the lower of cost or estimated fair value of unproved properties included in the costs being amortized, if any; less (4) income tax effects related to differences in the book and tax basis of oil and gas properties. Should the net capitalized costs for a cost center exceed the sum of the components noted above, an impairment charge would be recognized to the extent of the excess capitalized costs. In 2012 the Company recognized an impairment charge of $5,910,000 in accordance with the ceiling test.

 

Sales of proved and unproved properties are accounted for as adjustments of capitalized costs with no gain or loss recognized, unless such adjustments would significantly alter the relationship between capitalized costs and proved reserves of oil and gas, in which case the gain or loss is recognized in the statement of operations.

 

Exploration activities conducted jointly with others are reflected at the Company’s proportionate interest in such activities. Cost related to site restoration programs are accrued over the life of the project.

 

Pipeline and equipment

 

Depreciation is based on the estimated useful lives of the assets and is computed using the straight line method. Pipeline, trucks and equipment are recorded at cost. Depreciation is provided using the following useful lives:

 

Pipeline 15 years
Trucks and equipment 5—15 years

Stock-based compensation

 

The Company accounts for stock options in accordance with FASB ASC 505, “Equity,” and FASB ASC 718, “Compensation—Stock Compensation.” Accordingly, stock compensation expense has been recognized in the statement of operations based on the grant date fair value of the options for the year ended December 31, 2012.

 

Under ASC 718 and 505, the fair value of options is estimated at the date of grant using a Black-Scholes-Merton (“Black-Scholes”) option-pricing model, which requires the input of highly subjective assumptions including the expected stock price volatility. Volatility is determined using historical stock prices over a period consistent with the expected term of the option. The Company utilizes the guidelines of Staff Accounting bulletin No. 107 (SAB 107) of the Securities and Exchange Commission relative to “plain vanilla” options in determining the expected term of options grants. SAB 107 permits the expected term of “plain vanilla” options to be calculated as the average of the option’s vesting term and contractual period.

 

The Company has used this method in determining the expected term of all options. At such time as the Company has options with graded vesting, the Company will recognize compensation cost for awards with graded vesting on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period for the entire award. The amount of compensation expense recognized at any date is at least equal to the portion of the grant date value of the award that is vested at that date.

 

Advertising costs

 

The Company expenses advertising costs as these are incurred. Marketing expenses totaled $0 and $46,320 in 2012 and 2011, respectively.

 

Revenue recognition

 

Oil and gas revenues are recognized when oil and gas is produced and sold.

 

Earnings (loss) per share

 

Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed using the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period. The treasury stock method is used to determine the diluted effect of stock options and warrants. Diluted loss per share is equal to the basic loss per share for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 because common stock equivalents would have been anti-dilutive.

 

Income taxes

 

The Company recognizes deferred tax liabilities and assets for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in the Company’s financial statements or tax returns using the liability method. Under this method, deferred tax liabilities and assets are determined based on the temporary differences between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates in effect in the year in which the differences are expected to reverse.

45
 

 

Long-lived assets impairment

 

Long-term assets of the Company are reviewed for impairment when circumstances indicate the carrying value may not be recoverable in accordance with the guidance established in Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144 (SFAS 144) (ASC 360), Accounting for the impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets. For assets that are to be held and used, an impairment loss is recognized when the estimated undiscounted cash flows associated with the asset or group of assets is less than their carrying value. If impairment exists, an adjustment is made to write the asset down to its fair value. Fair values are determined based on discounted cash flows or internal and external appraisals, as applicable. Assets to be disposed of are carried at the lower of carrying value or estimated net realizable value.

 

Asset retirement obligations

 

The Company accounts for asset retirement obligations in accordance with the provisions of SFAS 143 (ASC 410) “Accounting for Asset Retirement Obligations”. SFAS 143 (ASC 410) requires the Company to record the fair value of an asset retirement obligation as a liability in the period in which it incurs a legal obligation associated with the retirement of tangible long-lived assets that result from the acquisition, construction, development and/or normal use of the assets. The Asset Retirement Obligation as of December 31, 2012 is $40,278 which includes an increase of $14,788 for the year ended December 31, 2012.

 

Concentration of credit risk

 

The Company has financial instruments that are exposed to concentrations of credit risk and consist primarily of cash and trade accounts receivable. The Company routinely maintains cash and temporary cash investments at certain financial institutions in amounts substantially in excess of Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”) insurance limits. Management believes that these financial institutions are of high quality and the risk of loss is minimal. At December 31, 2012 the Company had no cash balances in excess of FDIC limits.

 

Financial instruments

 

The carrying amount of financial instruments including cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable and accrued liabilities approximate fair value, unless otherwise stated as of December 31, 2012 and 2011.

 

Fair value estimates of financial instruments are made at the period end based on relevant information about financial markets and specific financial instruments. Because these estimates are subjective in nature, involving uncertainties and matters of significant judgment, they cannot be determined with precision. Changes in assumptions can significantly affect estimated fair value.

 

Contingencies

 

Certain conditions may exist as of the date the financial statements are issued, which may result in a loss to the Company, but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. Company management and legal counsel assess such contingent liabilities which inherently involves an exercise of judgment. In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against the Company, or unasserted claims that may result in such proceedings, the Company’s legal counsel evaluates the perceived merits of any legal proceedings or unasserted claims as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought therein.

 

If management determines that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, the estimated liability is accrued in the Company’s financial statements. If the assessment indicates that a potentially material loss contingency is not probable but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, then the nature of the contingent liability, together with an estimate of the range of possible loss if determinable and material, is disclosed.

3. REVERSE MERGER TRANSACTION

 

On August 9, 2011, Petron Energy II, Inc. (“PEII”), a privately owned company, entered into a stock purchase agreement with three (3) shareholders of Restaurant Concepts of America, Inc. (“RCA”), a publicly traded company. The agreement called for PEII to purchase 10,000,000 shares of RCA’s common stock for $232,750 ($0.02375 per share) from the three shareholders. The shares purchased represented ninety-eight point nine percent (98.9%) of the total outstanding common shares of RCA at August 9, 2011. Immediately after the purchase, PEII cancelled nine million four hundred thousand (9,400,000) shares of RCA’s common stock resulting in the following stock ownership, which was subsequently effected by a one hundred to one forward stock split:

 

  Pre-Split Post-Split
Petron Energy II, Inc. 600,000 60,000,000
Other Shareholders 110,003 11,000,300
Total RCA Common Shares Outstanding 710,003 71,000,300

 

47
 

Subsequent to the issuance of the 60,000,000 stock certificate to PEII, management determined that 78,511,478 shares of RCA’s common stock should have been issued based on an exchange rate of two shares of common stock for each share of PEII’s preferred stock outstanding and one share of common stock for each share of PEII’s common stock outstanding. The 60,000,000 share certificate was cancelled. The exchange of shares was effected as follows:

Other Shareholders   11,000,300

Total Common Shares Outstanding

After the Exchange

  89,511,778

 

After PEII gained control of RCA, PEII’s name was changed to “Petron Energy Special Corporation” and RCA’s name was changed to “Petron Energy II, Inc.” The two entities will be statutorily merged, with the surviving entity assuming the name Petron Energy II, Inc., on January 3, 2012.

Subsequent to August 9, 2011, PEII sold 21,215,733 shares of common stock at $0.06 per share, resulting in a total of 110,727,511 outstanding common shares at December 31, 2011.

6. RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

Petron Energy, Inc. is a company controlled by the Company’s majority shareholder. In 2012 and 2011, the Company paid Petron Energy, Inc. $61,163 and $312,510, respectively. These amounts have been reflected in the accompanying consolidated financial statement as charges from a related party and are included in general and administrative expenses for the respective years.

 

Effective August 31, 2011, the Company entered into an Executive Employment Agreement with Floyd L. Smith.  Pursuant to the employment agreement, Mr. Smith agreed to serve as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company for a term of five years, renewable thereafter for additional one year periods if not terminated by either party. The employment agreement provides for Mr. Smith to receive a salary of $200,000 per year; reimbursement for reasonable business expenses; the ability to earn a yearly bonus in the sole discretion of the Board of Directors of the Company; co-investment rights, providing Mr. Smith the right to participate in the amount of up to 20% of any acquisition, transaction or funding undertaken by the Company during the term of the employment agreement; stock options to purchase 12,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.0039 per share, with cashless exercise rights and a five year term, which vested immediately upon the parties’ entry into the employment agreement; and 1,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock which give Mr. Smith Super Majority Voting Rights.

    420,500 
Short-term portion   (170,500)
Long-term notes payable  $250,000 

 

8. INCOME TAXES

 

The Company uses the liability method in accounting for income taxes. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are determined based upon differences between financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities and are measured using the enacted tax rates and laws that will be in effect when the differences are expected to reverse.

50
 

 

The potential benefit of net operating loss carry forwards has not been recognized in the accompanying consolidated financial statements since the Company cannot be assured that it is more likely than not that such benefit will be utilized in future years.

 

The Company is subject to United States federal and state income taxes at an approximate rate of 34%. The reconciliation of the provision for income taxes at the United States federal statutory rate compared to the Company’s income tax expense as reported for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 is as follows:

 

   2012  2011
Net Loss  $8,326,063   $3,127,742 
Income Tax Rate   34%   34%
Income Tax Recovery   2,830,861    1,063,432 
Permanent Difference   (103,664)   (365,319)
Valuation Allowance Change   (2,727,197)   (698,113)
Deferred Income Tax (Recovery)  $—     $—   

Deferred income taxes reflect the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes.

 

Future income taxes arise from temporary differences in the recognition of income and expenses for financial reporting and tax purposes. The significant components of future income tax assets and liabilities at December 31, 2012 and 2011 are as follows:

 

   2012  2011
Net Operating Loss Carryforwards  $2,711,283   $2,025,658 
Impairments   2,055,640    —   
Depletion and Depreciation   (223,500)   (209,432)
Net Deferred Tax Assets   4,543,423    1,816,226 
Valuation Allowance   (4,543,423)   (1,816,226)
Deferred Tax Asset  $—     $—   

The Company has recognized a valuation allowance for the deferred tax assets for which it is more likely than not that the realization will not occur. The valuation allowance is reviewed periodically. When circumstance change and this causes a change in management's judgment about the realizeability of deferred tax assets, the impact of the change on the valuation allowance is generally reflected in current income.

 

The net operating loss carryforwards for income tax purposes are approximately $8,100,000 and will begin to expire in 2025. Neither the Company nor any of its subsidiaries have ever been the subject of an examination by the Internal Revenue Service.

51
 

 

Pursuant to Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code, use of the Company’s net operating loss carryforwards may be limited if the Company experiences a cumulative change in ownership of greater than 50% in a moving three year period. Ownership changes could impact the Company’s ability to utilize net operating losses and credit carryforwards remaining at the ownership change date. The limitation would be determined by the fair market value of common stock outstanding prior to the ownership change, multiplied by the applicable federal rate.

 

9. STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

 

Preferred Stock

 

The articles of incorporation of the Company authorize the issuance of 10,000,000 shares of $0.001 par value Preferred Stock. The Board of Directors is authorized, from time to time, to divide the preferred shares into “Series” and to fix and determine separately for each Series any or all of the relative rights and preferences.

 

In connection with an employment agreement, the Company issued 1,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock in August 2011. The Series A Preferred Stock has voting rights on all shareholder matters equal to fifty-one percent (51%) of the total vote. There are no other liquidation, conversion or redemption rights.

 

On February 17, 2012, the Board of Directors designated “Series B Convertible Preferred Stock” with the number of shares initially constituting such series being up to 6,000,000 shares, issuing 5,910,000 for the acquisition of oil & gas properties,

 

The Board of Directors does not formally approve the declaration of the preferred stock dividends; therefore, as checks for payment of preferred dividends are approved by the CEO of the Company, dividend expense is recognized. For the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, the preferred stock dividend expense was $0 and $875, respectively.

Common Stock

 

The Company is authorized to issue up to 1,000,000,000 shares of $0.001 par value common stock.

 

In connection with the employment agreement with Floyd L. Smith, the Company issued: (1) stock options to purchase 12,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.0039 per share, with cashless exercise rights and a five year term, which vest immediately, and (2) 1,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock which provide him Super Majority Voting Rights. The stock options and Series A preferred stock were valued at $377,456 and $4,791, respectively, using a Black-Scholes Option Pricing model. In connection with the valuation of the stock options, the Company used the following assumptions: dividend yield 0%, risk free rate 0.96%, volatility 44.44% and an expected term of 5 years.

 

On August 25, 2011, the Company’s Board of Directors approved a one hundred-to-one (100:1) forward stock split of the issued and outstanding shares of common stock for stockholders of record on August 25, 2011. The effect of this stock split has been applied retroactively in the accompanying financial statements.

 

In December 2012 the Company’s Board of Directors authorized a ten to one reverse stock split for all outstanding common shares. During 2012, there were 717,175 post-split common shares sold for $838,326 cash, with an additional 147,016 post-split common shares issued for services valued at $158,647. The convertible note included additional consideration of 40,000 post-split common shares valued at $52,000 and 100,000 post-split common stock warrants valued at $84,000.

10. FAIR VALUE ESTIMATES

 

In February 2007 the FASB issued ASC 820 “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures”. The objective of ASC 820 is to increase consistency and comparability in fair value measurements and to expand disclosures about fair value measurements. ASC 820 defines fair value establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. ASC 820 applies under other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements and does not require any new fair value measurements.

 

The Company measures its options at fair value in accordance with ASC 820. 820 specifies a valuation hierarchy based on whether the inputs to those valuations techniques are observable or unobservable. Observable inputs reflect market data obtained from independent sources, while unobservable inputs reflect the Company’s own assumptions. These two types of inputs have created the following fair value hierarchy:

 

Level 1—Quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets;

Level 2—Quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted process for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model-derived valuations in which all significant inputs and significant value drivers are observable in active markets; and

Level 3—Valuations derived from valuations techniques in which one or more significant inputs or significant value drivers are unobservable.

 

This hierarchy requires the Company to minimize the use of unobservable inputs and to use observable market data, if available, when estimating fair value.

11. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

The Company’s management has evaluated subsequent events through May 16, 2013, the date the consolidated financial statements were issued. In the opinion of the Company’s management, there have been no significant subsequent events since December 31, 2012 other than securing a $5,000,000 revolving line of credit described below:

 

Under the terms of a credit agreement the Company has pledged all of its oil and gas assets as collateral. The Company makes requests for drawdowns periodically and the lender, in its sole discretion, will approve the requests. The funds are to be used for enhancing the oil and gas producing assets of the Company.

 

The first draw, under terms of an 11% note payable due October 17, 2013, was received April 17, 2013 for $450,000.

 

In 2013, 4,189,542 shares of the Company’s Series B Convertible preferred stock converted into an aggregate of 19,255,145 shares of the common stock of the Company. Under the Plan of Reorganization and Asset Purchase Agreement and the Certificate of Designation, these shares of Series B Convertible preferred stock convert into common shares of the Company having a total value of $5,910,000, based on the average trading price of the Company’s common stock on the five days prior to the date of conversion, which was on January 7, 2013 (the “Conversion Date”). However, the Series B cannot be converted by the holders thereof if such conversion would result in the acquisition by such holder of more than 9.99% of the Company’s outstanding stock (the “Ownership Limitation”). At May 16, 2013, we had 1,720,458 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock issued and outstanding, which had not converted because of the Ownership Limitation.

 Reserve Information

 

53
 

The following estimates of proved and proved developed reserve quantities and related standardized measure of discounted net cash flow are estimates only, and do not purport to reflect realizable values or fair market values of the Company’s reserves. The Company emphasizes that reserve estimates are inherently imprecise and that estimates of new discoveries are more imprecise than those of producing oil and gas properties. Accordingly, these estimates are expected to change as future information becomes available. All of the Company’s reserves are located in the United States.

 

Proved reserves are estimated reserves of crude oil (including condensates and natural gas liquids) and natural gas that geological and engineering data demonstrate with reasonable certainty to be recoverable in future years from known reservoirs under existing economic and operating conditions. Proved developed reserves are those expected to be recovered through existing wells, equipment, and operating methods.

 

The standardized measure of discounted future net cash flows is computed by applying average prices of oil and gas based upon the prior 12 months to the estimated future production of proved oil and gas reserves, less estimated future expenditures (based on year-end costs) to be incurred in developing and producing the proved reserves, less estimated future income tax expenses (based on year-end statutory tax rates, with consideration of future tax rates already legislated) to be incurred on pretax net cash flows less tax basis of the properties and available credits, and assuming continuation of existing economic conditions. The estimated future net cash flows are then discounted using a rate of 10% a year to reflect the estimated timing of the future cash flows.

 

The following table sets forth estimated proved oil and gas reserves together with the changes therein for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011:

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

 

Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures.

 

Our Chief Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, after evaluating the effectiveness of our "disclosure controls and procedures" (as defined in the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (“Exchange Act”) Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e)) as of the end of the period covered by this Annual Report on Form 10-K (the "Evaluation Date"), has concluded that as of the Evaluation Date, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to provide reasonable assurance that information we are required to disclose in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. 

 

Management's Annual Report on Internal Control over Financing Report

 

The management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act. The Company's internal control over financial reporting is a process designed under the supervision of the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of the Company's financial statements for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (US GAAP) and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

- pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets;
   
- provide reasonable assurance that the transactions are recorded as necessary to permit the preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of our management and directors; and
   
- provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

- pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets;
   
- provide reasonable assurance that the transactions are recorded as necessary to permit the preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of our management and directors; and
   
- provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

54
 

Management recognizes that there are inherent limitations in the effectiveness of any system of internal control, and accordingly, even effective internal control can provide only reasonable assurance with respect of financial statement preparation and may not prevent or detect misstatements. In addition, effective internal control at a point in time may become ineffective in future periods because of changes in conditions or due to deterioration in the degree of compliance with our established policies and procedures.

 

As of December 31, 2012, management assessed the effectiveness of the Company's internal control over financial reporting based on the criteria for effective internal control over financial reporting established in Internal Control--Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission ("COSO") and SEC guidance on conducting such assessments.”

 

Based on that evaluation, management concluded that, during the period covered by this report, such internal controls and procedures were not effective to detect the inappropriate application of US GAAP rules as more fully described below. This was due to deficiencies that existed in the design or operation of our internal control over financial reporting that adversely affected our internal controls and that taken together may be considered to be a material weakness.

 

A material weakness is a deficiency, or combination of deficiencies, that results in more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected. In connection with the assessment described above, management identified the following control deficiencies that represent material weaknesses at December 31, 2012:

 

(1) Inadequate segregation of duties consistent with control objectives. The aforementioned material weakness was identified by our Chief Executive Officer and our Chief Financial Officer in connection with the review of our financial statements.

 

55
 

Management believes that the material weakness set forth in Item (1) above did not have an effect on the Company's financial reporting in 2012. However, management believes that the lack of a functioning audit committee and lack of a majority of outside directors on the Company's board of directors can adversely affect reporting in the future years, when our operations become more complex and less transparent and require higher level of financial expertise from the overseeing body of the Company.

 

We are committed to improving our financial organization. As part of this commitment, we will, as soon as funds are available to the Company (1) appoint one or more outside directors to our board of directors who shall be appointed to the audit committee of the Company resulting in a fully functioning audit committee who will undertake the oversight in the establishment and monitoring of required internal controls and procedures; (2) create a position to segregate duties consistent with control objectives and will increase our personnel resources; and (3) hire independent third parties to provide expert advice.

 

We will continue to monitor and evaluate the effectiveness of our internal controls and procedures and our internal controls over financial reporting on an ongoing basis and are committed to taking further action and implementing additional enhancements or improvements, as necessary and as funds allow. This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company's independent registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management's report is not subject to attestation by the Company's independent registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit us to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

 

Changes in internal control over financial reporting.

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during our most recent fiscal quarter that materially affected, or were reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

ITEM 9B. OTHER INFORMATION.

 

In 2013, 4,182,542 shares of the Company’s Series B Convertible preferred stock converted into an aggregate of 19,255,145 shares of the common stock of the Company. Under the Plan of Reorganization and Asset Purchase Agreement and the Certificate of Designation, these shares of Series B Convertible preferred stock convert into common shares of the Company having a total value of $5,910,000, based on the average trading price of the Company’s common stock on the five days prior to the date of conversion, which was on January 7, 2013 (the “Conversion Date”).

At May 14, 2013, we had 1,720,458 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock issued and outstanding, which had not converted because of the Ownership Limitation.

Family Relationships

 

There are no family relationships among our Directors or executive officers.

 

Involvement in Certain Legal Proceedings

 

Our Directors, executive officers and control persons have not been involved in any of the following events during the past ten years:

 

1. any bankruptcy petition filed by or against any business of which such person was a general partner or executive officer either at the time of the bankruptcy or within two years prior to that time;

 Committees of the Board

 

Our Company currently does not have nominating, compensation or audit committees or committees performing similar functions nor does our Company have a written nominating, compensation or audit committee charter. Our Directors believe that it is not necessary to have such committees, at this time, because the functions of such committees can be adequately performed by the Board of Directors.

 

Our Company does not have any defined policy or procedural requirements for shareholders to submit recommendations or nominations for Directors. The Board of Directors believes that, given the stage of our development, a specific nominating policy would be premature and of little assistance until our business operations develop to a more advanced level. Our Company does not currently have any specific or minimum criteria for the election of nominees to the Board of Directors and we do not have any specific process or procedure for evaluating such nominees. The Board of Directors will assess all candidates, whether submitted by management or shareholders, and make recommendations for election or appointment.

 

A shareholder who wishes to communicate with our Board of Directors may do so by directing a written request addressed to our President and Director, at the address appearing on the first page of this filing.

 

Risk Oversight

 

Effective risk oversight is an important priority of the Board of Directors. Because risks are considered in virtually every business decision, the Board of Directors discusses risk throughout the year generally or in connection with specific proposed actions. The Board of Directors’ approach to risk oversight includes understanding the critical risks in the Company’s business and strategy, evaluating the Company’s risk management processes, allocating responsibilities for risk oversight among the full Board of Directors, and fostering an appropriate culture of integrity and compliance with legal responsibilities.

58
 

 

CORPORATE GOVERNANCE

 

The Company promotes accountability for adherence to honest and ethical conduct; endeavors to provide full, fair, accurate, timely and understandable disclosure in reports and documents that the Company files with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “ SEC ”) and in other public communications made by the Company; and strives to be compliant with applicable governmental laws, rules and regulations. The Company has not formally adopted a written code of business conduct and ethics that governs the Company’s employees, officers and Directors as the Company is not required to do so.

 

In lieu of an Audit Committee, the Company’s Board of Directors is responsible for reviewing and making recommendations concerning the selection of outside auditors, reviewing the scope, results and effectiveness of the annual audit of the Company's financial statements and other services provided by the Company’s independent public accountants. The Board of Directors reviews the Company's internal accounting controls, practices and policies.

Compensation Discussion and Analysis

 

Director Compensation

 

Our Board of Directors does not currently receive any consideration for their services as members of the Board of Directors. The Board of Directors reserves the right in the future to award the members of the Board of Directors cash or stock based consideration for their services to the Company, which awards, if granted shall be in the sole determination of the Board of Directors.

 

Executive Compensation Philosophy

 

Our Board of Directors determines the compensation given to our executive officers in their sole determination. Our Board of Directors also reserves the right to pay our executives a salary, and/or issue them shares of common stock issued in consideration for services rendered and/or to award incentive bonuses which are linked to our performance, as well as to the individual executive officer’s performance. This package may also include long-term stock based compensation to certain executives which is intended to align the performance of our executives with our long-term business strategies. Additionally, the Board of Directors reserves the right to grant stock options in the future (similar to those options granted to Mr. Smith in August 2011), if the Board in its sole determination believes such grants would be in the best interests of the Company.

 

60
 

Incentive Bonus

 

The Board of Directors may grant incentive bonuses to our executive officers in its sole discretion, if the Board of Directors believes such bonuses are in the Company’s best interest, after analyzing our current business objectives and growth, if any, and the amount of revenue we are able to generate each month, which revenue is a direct result of the actions and ability of such executives.

 

Long-term, Stock Based Compensation

 

In order to attract, retain and motivate executive talent necessary to support the Company’s long-term business strategy we may award certain executives with long-term, stock-based compensation in the future, in the sole discretion of our Board of Directors, which we do not currently have any immediate plans to award, other than the stock options previously granted to Mr. Smith, as described above. 

 

ITEM 12. SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS.

 

The following table sets forth, as of December 31, 2012, the number and percentage of outstanding shares of our common stock owned by: (a) each person who is known by us to be the beneficial owner of more than 5% of our outstanding shares of common stock; and (b) all current directors and executive officers, as a group, and includes the 1,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock and Super Majority Voting Rights associated with such Series A Preferred Stock which the Company agreed to issue to Mr. Smith pursuant to the Employment Agreement.

 

As of December 31, 2012, and including the securities described above, there were 12,773,112 shares of common stock issued and outstanding, 1,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock issued and outstanding and 5,910,000 shares of Series B Preferred Stock issued and outstanding.

  

Beneficial ownership has been determined in accordance with Rule 13d-3 under the Exchange Act. Under this rule, certain shares may be deemed to be beneficially owned by more than one person (if, for example, persons share the power to vote or the power to dispose of the shares). In addition, shares are deemed to be beneficially owned by a person if the person has the right to acquire shares (for example, upon exercise of an option or warrant) within 60 days of the date as of which the information is provided. In computing the percentage ownership of any person, the amount of shares is deemed to include the amount of shares beneficially owned by such person by reason of such acquisition rights. As a result, the percentage of outstanding shares of any person as shown in the following table does not necessarily reflect the person’s actual voting power at any particular date.

 

            To our knowledge, except as indicated in the footnotes to this table and pursuant to applicable community property laws, the persons named in the table have sole voting and investment power with respect to all shares of common stock shown as beneficially owned by them.

ITEM 13. CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS

 

On April 12, 2011, the Company entered into a $1,700 Promissory Note with Mr. Cho, to evidence amounts loaned to the Company by Mr. Cho. The Promissory Note accrued interest at the rate of eight percent (8%) per annum and was due and payable on April 12, 2012. The Promissory Note was repaid in August 2011, with proceeds received from the Stock Purchase Agreement (as described below).

 

On August 9, 2011, we; David Cho, the Company’s then Chief Executive Officer and Director and then 54.4% owner of the Company’s common stock (550,000,000 shares or 5,500,000 pre-forward split shares); Pete Wainscott, the Company’s then Director and then 34.6% owner of the Company’s common stock (350,000,000 shares or 3,500,000 pre-forward split shares); and David M. Loev the then 9.9% owner of the Company’s common stock (100,000,000 shares, or 1,000,000 pre-forward split shares)(collectively the “ Selling Shareholders ”) entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement with Petron Special, which is controlled by Floyd L. Smith. Pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Selling Shareholders sold an aggregate of 1,000,000,000 shares (10,000,000 pre-forward split) shares of the Company’s restricted common stock to Petron Special in consideration for $232,750 (the “ Purchase Price ”); provided that a required term and condition of the closing of the Stock Purchase Agreement was that the Company had no liabilities at closing, and as such, a portion of the Purchase Price was used to satisfy the Company’s outstanding liabilities, including the notes described above which were either repaid or forgiven in connection with such transaction.

On August 10, 2011, our then Directors, David Cho and Pete Wainscott, increased the number of Directors of the Company to three, and appointed Floyd L. Smith as a Director of the Company, pursuant to the power provided to the Board of Directors by the Company’s Bylaws to fill the vacancy left by the increase. Immediately following such appointment, David Cho, our President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Secretary, and Director resigned as an officer and Director of the Company and Pete Wainscott, our Director, resigned as a Director of the Company and Floyd L. Smith was appointed as the Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, President, Secretary and Treasurer of the Company. Additionally, as a result of the resignations of Mr. Cho and Mr. Wainscott as Directors of the Company, Mr. Smith was the sole Director of the Company. On August 15, 2011, Floyd L. Smith, our then sole Director, appointed David Knepper and Kenny Fox as Directors of the Company.

 

On August 12, 2011, the Company entered into the Petron Asset Purchase Agreement with Petron Special, which is controlled by Floyd L. Smith, who indirectly became the majority shareholder of and President and sole Director of the Company on August 10, 2011, as described below. Pursuant to the Petron Asset Purchase Agreement, we agreed to purchase substantially all of Petron Special’s assets (which consist of various oil and gas interests, leases and working interests collectively, the “ Assets ”) and none of the liabilities of Petron Special in consideration for 17,000,000 shares (170,000 pre-forward split shares) of the Company’s restricted common stock (the “ Petron Shares ”). All of Petron Special’s Assets, as defined in the Petron Asset Purchase Agreement and accompanying amendments, was purchased by the Company in consideration for 3,000,000 restricted shares (30,000 pre-forward split shares) of common stock on August 31, 2011. 

 

As a result of the Stock Purchase Agreement described above, Petron Special, and as a result of his control of Petron Special, Floyd L. Smith (who became our sole officer and Director on August 10, 2011, as described below) became the largest shareholder of the Company and obtained majority voting control (98.9% of the Company’s outstanding shares) over the Company. Furthermore, in connection with the Company’s entry into an Executive Employment Agreement with Mr. Smith (described above), Mr. Smith obtained rights to shares of Preferred Stock, which allow him to vote 51% of our outstanding common stock on any and all shareholder matters (including the appointment of Directors), thereby providing him continuing voting control over the Company, pursuant only to the terms and conditions of the Preferred Stock. Additionally, as discussed above, the Petron Asset Purchase Agreement contemplates the cancellation of 9,400,000 of the restricted shares of common stock purchased by Petron Special, as described above pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement which cancellation has occurred.

 

 In August 2011, the Company received advances of $131,912 from Petron Special. The advances are unsecured and due upon demand and do not bear interest.

 

In August 2011, the Company advanced $156,900 to Petron Well Services, Inc., an entity majority owned by Petron Special and to Petron Special (which funds advanced to Petron Special were subsequently paid to ONE Energy in connection with the One Energy Asset Acquisition Agreement).The advances are unsecured and due upon demand and do not bear interest.

 

Effective August 31, 2011, the Company entered into an Executive Employment Agreement with Floyd L. Smith. Pursuant to the employment agreement, Mr. Smith agreed to serve as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company for a term of five years, renewable thereafter for additional one year periods if not terminated by either party, and we agreed to provide Mr. Smith consideration of $200,000 per year; reimbursement for reasonable business expenses; the ability to earn a yearly bonus in the sole discretion of the Board of Directors of the Company; co-investment rights, providing Mr. Smith the right to participate in the amount of up to 20% of any acquisition, transaction or funding undertaken by the Company during the term of the employment agreement; stock options to purchase 12,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.0039 per share, with cashless exercise rights and a five year term, which vested immediately upon the parties’ entry into the employment agreement; and 1,000 shares of Series A Preferred Stock which give Mr. Smith Super Majority Voting Rights (described in greater detail above).

Review, Approval and Ratification of Related Party Transactions

 

Given our small size and limited financial resources, we have not adopted formal policies and procedures for the review, approval or ratification of transactions, such as those described above, with our executive officers, Directors and significant stockholders. However, all of the transactions described above were approved and ratified by our Board of Directors. In connection with the approval of the transactions described above, our Board of Directors, took into account several factors, including their fiduciary duties to the Company; the relationships of the related parties described above to the Company; the material facts underlying each transaction; the anticipated benefits to the Company and related costs associated with such benefits; whether comparable products or services were available; and the terms the Company could receive from an unrelated third party.

 

We intend to establish formal policies and procedures in the future, once we have sufficient resources and have appointed additional Directors, so that such transactions will be subject to the review, approval or ratification of our Board of Directors, or an appropriate committee thereof. On a moving forward basis, our Board of Directors will continue to approve any related party transaction based on the criteria set forth above.
