All such forecasts, projections and assumptions are subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond the Company's control, and no assurance can be given that such forecasts, projections or assumptions will be realized. No assurances can be given regarding the achievement of future results, as our actual results may differ materially from our projected future results as a result of the risks we face, and actual future events may differ from anticipated future events because of the assumptions underlying the forward-looking statements that have been made regarding such anticipated future events.

PART I


 
Introduction
 
We are a development stage company focused on entertainment, hospitality and real estate development opportunities in the MENA Region and we focus on the design and development of unique tourism destinations.
 
Our mission is to develop, own and operate innovative projects in the MENA Region which have tourism components that are thematically imbued with culturally aware, historically faithful, and scientifically accurate entertainment experiences. We design the tourism elements of our development projects to be modern and stylish while emphasizing the world’s great art, music, culture, science and philosophy.
 
Our initial project -  the “Omagine Project” -  is planned to be developed in the Sultanate of Oman and is planned to be an archetype for our future projects in the MENA Region.  For a description of the Omagine Project, see “The Omagine Project” in this Item 1 below.
 
Omagine, Inc. (the "Registrant" or "Omagine, Inc.") is a development stage entity (“DSE”) as defined in ASC 915 issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board. The Registrant is a holding company which was incorporated in Delaware in October 2004 and is the successor to Alfa International Corp.
 
The Registrant conducts substantially all of its operations through its 60% owned subsidiary Omagine LLC and its wholly-owned subsidiary Journey of Light, Inc. (“JOL”). Omagine, Inc., JOL and Omagine LLC are sometimes referred to herein collectively as the "Company".
 
In November 2009, Omagine, Inc. and JOL formed Omagine LLC, an Omani limited liability company in the Sultanate of Oman ("Oman").
 
In May 2011, Omagine LLC sold newly issued shares of its capital stock to Omagine, Inc. and three investors thereby reducing the Omagine, Inc. ownership of Omagine LLC from 100% to 60%. (See: “Business – The Shareholder Agreement”).
 
The Company plans to continue its focus on real estate development, entertainment and hospitality ventures and on developing, building, owning and operating tourism and residential real estate development projects, primarily in the MENA Region.
 
The Company presently concentrates the majority of its efforts on the tourism and real estate development business of Omagine LLC.
 
The Company's executive office is located at The Empire State Building, 350 Fifth Avenue, 48th Floor, New York, NY 10118, and its telephone number is 212-563-4141. Omagine LLC leases an office in Muscat, Oman. All facilities are leased from unaffiliated third parties.

The Omagine Project
 
The Company has proposed the development of the Omagine Project to the Government of Oman (the "Government").
 
We anticipate that the Omagine Project will be developed on one million square meters (equal to approximately 245 acres) of beachfront land facing the Gulf of Oman just west of the capital city of Muscat (the "Omagine Site") and approximately six miles from Muscat International Airport. The “New Boundaries” of the Omagine Site (as defined below) do not materially alter its size or location. The Omagine Project is planned to be an integration of cultural, heritage, educational, entertainment and residential components, including: a "high culture" theme park containing seven pearl shaped buildings, each approximately 60 feet in diameter; associated exhibition buildings; an open air boardwalk, amphitheater and stage; open space green landscaped areas; a canal and enclosed harbor and marina area; retail shops and restaurants; entertainment venues; boat slips and docking facilities; a five-star resort hotel; a four-star hotel; and possibly an additional three or four-star hotel; shopping and retail establishments integrated with the hotels; commercial office buildings; and more than two thousand residences to be developed for sale.
 
Significant commercial, retail, entertainment and hospitality elements are included in the Omagine Project which is expected to take more than five years to complete. The Company plans, over time, to also be in the property management, hospitality and entertainment businesses.
 
Non-Omani persons (such as expatriates living and working in Oman) are not permitted by Omani law to purchase land or residences in Oman outside of an Integrated Tourism Complex ("ITC"). Pursuant to the Development Agreement as presently agreed, the Government will issue a license designating the Omagine Project as an ITC and as such, Omagine LLC will be permitted to sell the freehold title to land and properties developed on the Omagine Site to any person, including any non-Omani person.
 
The Development Agreement
 
The contract between the Government and Omagine LLC which will govern the design, development, construction, management and ownership of the Omagine Project and the Government’s and Omagine LLC’s rights and obligations with respect to the Omagine Project, is the “Development Agreement” (the “DA”). The DA has been approved by the Ministry of Tourism (“MOT”) and by all other required Ministries of the Government of Oman. The Company has experienced numerous DA signing delays with the MOT but as of the date of this report management expects that the DA signing is imminent. For a detailed description of the prior delays encountered by the Company, please see the Registrant’s prior reports filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”).
 
From October 2013 through the filing date of this report in April 2014, an intensified series of meetings and discussions were held between and among various members of Omagine LLC’s management, shareholders, and lawyers and the Minister of Tourism, His Excellency Ahmed Al-Mahrizi, and the MOT staff. All of MOT’s outstanding issues and questions with respect to the DA were resolved and the text of a “Final DA” was agreed upon.
 
The final issue in these discussions was a proposal by MOT to slightly vary the boundaries of the Omagine Site (the “New Boundaries”). Omagine LLC agreed to the New Boundaries and, since the Omagine Site was originally transferred to MOT by the office of Royal Court Affairs ("RCA"), MOT requested that RCA also consent to the New Boundaries. H.E. Mahrizi informed Mr. Drohan that (i) as soon as RCA had consented to the New Boundaries, the MOT staff would secure a new land deed (a “krooki”) from the Ministry of Housing (“MOH”) showing the New Boundaries of the Omagine Site (the “New Krooki”), and (ii) as soon as the New Krooki was issued, he (H.E. Mahrizi) was ready to sign the Final DA with Omagine LLC.
 
On March 18, 2014, RCA wrote to MOT consenting to the New Boundaries. On March 26, 2014 MOT informed the Company that it had received RCA’s consent letter and would procure the New Krooki from MOH. Since then management has been following up assiduously with MOT and MOH in order to expedite the issuance of the New Krooki.
 
In response, we believe to our direct, frank, frequent and urgent inquiries to H.E. Al-Mahrizi, the Minister of Tourism, on April 13, 2014 we received from a newly appointed adviser to the Minister of Tourism a somewhat confused letter. This letter informed us that (i) MOT had not yet received the New Krooki from MOH, and (ii) MOT remained ready to sign the DA and the Usufruct Agreement (“UA”) after receiving the New Krooki. (See” Usufruct Agreement”, below)
 
Directly contrary to H.E. Al-Mahrizi’s wishes however, the letter went on to express the newly appointed adviser’s belief that, the UA and the DA would be signed at different times. The letter further stated – incorrectly - that certain terms and conditions contained in the DA are also contained in the UA. It is management’s belief that this letter, as flawed as it was in many respects, was an effort by MOT to answer and mollify us about the still unissued New Krooki. The operative fact here is that, although it is a somewhat trivial task, MOH simply has not yet issued the New Krooki to MOT and no amount of pressure can cause MOT to move to a signing date until the New Krooki is issued by MOH. Having said that, we – and the Omani public relations officers at CCC-Oman – will continue to follow up with MOH in an attempt to expedite the issuance of the New Krooki. No date for the DA signing has been set as of the date hereof but management continues to believe that the DA signing will follow quickly after the issuance of the New Krooki.
 
The identical mistakes and incorrect facts expressed in the abovementioned letter by the new adviser were heretofore expressed by other MOT Staff and such mistakes and incorrect facts were previously corrected on December 9, 2013 by the Minister when he, among other things, decided and directed that the DA and UA would be signed simultaneously (See Exhibit 99.4).
 
Management does not therefore anticipate any problems resulting from the abovementioned letter and we expect that the Minister of Tourism will, as he has done in the past, promptly rectify the new adviser’s misconceptions. Mr. Drohan plans to meet with the Minister of Tourism in this regard as soon as possible.
  
Past experience indicates that caution should be exercised in making any assumptions until the DA is actually signed by the parties. In light of such past experience, we caution investors that we cannot give any assurance whatsoever that the DA will be signed by the parties until it is actually signed by them.

The Usufruct Agreement
 
The Usufruct Agreement (the “UA”) is the contract between the Government and Omagine LLC which will govern the use, development and sale of the land constituting the Omagine Site (the “Project Land”). With respect to how such Project Land may be used or developed, the UA goes into no detail and merely states that the Omagine Site will be developed in accordance with the DA. Although the UA is a separate agreement from the DA, the DA and UA are dependent upon each other and the UA is part of and is incorporated by reference into the DA. Both the UA and the DA stipulate that in the event of any conflict between the terms and conditions of the DA and the terms and conditions of the UA, the terms and conditions of the DA will control. The term of the Usufruct Agreement is for fifty (50) years and it is renewable for an additional fifty years upon the agreement of the parties (the “Term”).
 
The UA grants Omagine LLC the absolute right during the Term to use, control, develop and sell (to itself or others) the Project Land pursuant to the terms of the DA. The UA obligates Omagine LLC, beginning on the fifth anniversary of the signing of the UA, to pay the Government an annual fee equal to three hundred Omani Baisa (equivalent to approximately $0.78) for each square meter of Project Land on which there is a non-residential building (the “Usufruct Rent”). No Usufruct Rent is due or owing during the first five years after signing the UA and no Usufruct Rent is ever due or owing during the Term with respect to Project Land (i) on which there is a residential building, or (ii) on which there is not a substantially completed non-residential building (i.e. open space, roads, building work-in-progress, etc.).
 
As is present practice in Oman, the Company anticipates that, all sales contracts with third party purchasers of residential or commercial properties will stipulate the payment to Omagine LLC by such purchasers of (i) a deposit on signing of such sales contract, and (ii) progress payments during the construction period of the relevant property covered by such sales contract. Since the aggregate of such deposit and progress payments before and during the construction of the relevant property is expected to be approximately 85% of the sales price of the relevant property stipulated in such sales contract, the Company anticipates that (i) the construction costs for the vast majority of such properties will be “owner-financed” by the relevant purchaser, and (ii) it will therefore not be necessary for Omagine LLC to utilize any Construction Financing from its banks in order to pay for such construction costs. Management expects that this commonly accepted sales contract and payment process will significantly benefit Omagine LLC by reducing its aggregate requirements for Construction Financing from its banks.
 
The UA and DA also obligate Omagine LLC to pay the Government twenty-five (25) Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $65) for each square meter of Project Land purchased directly by Omagine LLC or sold by Omagine LLC to any third party during the Term (the “Land Price Payments”). Such Land Price Payments are not due or owing to the Government from Omagine LLC until the time that Omagine LLC legally transfers the freehold title to such land to such purchasers, which time will coincide with the closing of the sale of such properties. Such closings will only occur after (i) the properties are fully constructed, and (ii) Omagine LLC has received final payment from the purchaser of the relevant sales contract amount for such properties. Omagine LLC’s financing profile will therefore be further enhanced since it will not be obligated to make any Land Price Payments to the Government until after it has already received 100% of the contracted sales price amount from the relevant purchaser at the closing when the freehold title to such land and property is transferred to the purchaser.
 
At the expiration of the Term, any Project Land or buildings situated on Project Land remaining unsold - if any - will revert to the ownership of the Government. Since the UA and DA grant Omagine LLC the right to sell the freehold title to all Project Land and buildings in the Omagine Project, the Company does not presently anticipate that there will be any unsold Project Land or buildings at the expiration of the Term. The foregoing summary of the terms of the Usufruct Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Usufruct Agreement which the Company will file as an exhibit to its SEC filing subsequent to the signing of the Usufruct Agreement.

The Shareholder Agreement
 
In May 2011, Omagine, Inc., JOL and three (3) investors (the “New Shareholders”) signed a shareholders’ agreement dated as of April 20, 2011 with respect to Omagine LLC (the “Shareholder Agreement”). The New Shareholders are (i) RCA, (ii) Consolidated Contracting Company S.A. (“CCC-Panama”) and (iii) Consolidated Contractors (Oman) Company LLC, (“CCC-Oman”).
 
The parties to the Shareholder Agreement are Omagine, Inc., JOL and the New Shareholders. The Shareholder Agreement is Exhibit 10.3 hereto.
 
The Office of Royal Court Affairs ("RCA") is an Omani organization representing the personal interests of His Majesty, Sultan Qaboos bin Said, the ruler of Oman.
 
Consolidated Contractors International Company, SAL, (“CCIC”) is a 60 year old Lebanese multi-national company headquartered in Athens, Greece. CCIC has approximately five and one-half (5.5) billion dollars in annual revenue and one hundred twenty thousand (120,000) employees worldwide. It has operating subsidiaries in, among other places, every country in the MENA Region. CCC-Panama is a subsidiary of CCIC and is its investment arm. CCC-Oman is an Omani construction company with approximately 13,000 employees in Oman and is CCIC’s operating subsidiary in Oman.
 
Prior to the signing of the Shareholder Agreement Omagine LLC was wholly owned by Omagine, Inc. and JOL and was capitalized by Omagine, Inc. and JOL at 20,000 Omani Rials which is equivalent to approximately $52,000 (the “OMAG Initial Equity Investment”).
 
Pursuant to the provisions of the Shareholder Agreement, Omagine, Inc. reduced its 100% ownership of Omagine LLC to sixty percent (60%) and Omagine LLC sold newly issued shares of its capital stock to the New Shareholders and to Omagine, Inc. for an aggregate cash investment amount of 26,968,125 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $70,117,125) (the “New Investment”) plus an as yet undetermined non-cash “payment-in-kind” investment by RCA (the “PIK”) representing the value to Omagine LLC of the rights to be granted to Omagine LLC pursuant to the DA over the land constituting the Omagine Site.
 
Pursuant to the terms of the Shareholder Agreement, the New Investment will be invested in three stages.
 
1.
As of the date hereof an initial portion of the New Investment equal to 130,000 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $338,000) has been invested into Omagine LLC by the New Shareholders and Omagine, Inc.
2.
Subsequent to the signing of the DA but prior to the Financing Agreement Date (as hereinafter defined), an additional portion of the New Investment equal to 210,000 Omani Rials which is equivalent to approximately $546,000 (the “OMAG Final Equity Investment”) will be invested into Omagine LLC by Omagine, Inc.
3.
On or immediately subsequent to the Financing Agreement Date, the final portion of the New Investment equal to 26,628,125 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $69,233,125) will be invested into Omagine LLC by the New Shareholders.
 
The value of the PIK investment by RCA will be added to Omagine LLC’s capital after such value is determined subsequent to the signing of the DA. As of the date hereof 41,000 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $106,600) of the OMAG Final Equity Investment has been advanced by Omagine, Inc. to Omagine LLC in order to maintain Omagine LLC’s liquidity.
 
 
7

 
 
Pursuant to the Shareholder Agreement the New Investment to be made into Omagine LLC will be invested as follows:
 
1.
CCIC’s two subsidiaries will invest an aggregate of 19,010,000 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $49,426,000) into Omagine LLC. CCC-Panama will invest 12,673,333 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $32,950,666) and CCC-Oman will invest 6,336,667 Omani Rials in cash (equivalent to approximately $16,475,334), as follows:
 
(i)
As of the date hereof, CCC-Panama has invested 15,000 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $39,000) into Omagine LLC and CCC-Panama will invest an additional 12,658,333 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $32,911,666) on the Financing Agreement Date.
 
(ii)
As of the date hereof, CCC-Oman has invested 7,500 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $19,500) into Omagine LLC and CCC-Oman will invest an additional 6,329,167 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $16,455,834) on the Financing Agreement Date.
 
(iii)
The CCC-Panama and CCC-Oman initial combined investments of 22,500 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $58,500) have been received by Omagine LLC as of the date hereof and payment of the CCC-Panama and CCC-Oman combined investment balance of 18,987,500 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $49,367,500) is contingent upon (i) the signing of a contract between Omagine LLC and CCC-Oman appointing CCC-Oman as the general contractor for the Omagine Project, and (ii) the occurrence of the Financing Agreement Date.
 
(iv)
The result of the foregoing is that CCC-Panama presently owns ten percent (10%) of Omagine LLC and CCC-Oman presently owns five percent (5%) of Omagine LLC.
 
2.
RCA will invest an aggregate of 7,678,125 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $19,963,125) into Omagine LLC plus RCA will also invest the non-cash value of the PIK into Omagine LLC, as follows:
 
(i)
As of the date hereof, RCA has invested 37,500 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $97,500) into Omagine LLC and, contingent only upon the occurrence of the Financing Agreement Date, RCA will invest an additional 7,640,625 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $19,865,625) on the Financing Agreement Date.
 
(ii)
Subsequent to Omagine LLC acquiring its rights over the Omagine Site pursuant to the terms of the Development Agreement, the PIK will be valued by an independent valuation expert and only after the approval and concurrence of Omagine LLC’s independent auditors, such value will then be booked as an additional non-cash capital investment by RCA into Omagine LLC.
 
(iii)
The result of the foregoing is that RCA presently owns twenty-five percent (25%) of Omagine LLC.
 
3.
Omagine, Inc.’s total aggregate investment into Omagine LLC will be 300,000 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $780,000). In addition to the 20,000 Omani Rial OMAG Initial Investment made in 2009, Omagine, Inc. will invest an additional 280,000 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $728,000) into Omagine LLC as follows:
 
(i)
As of the date hereof Omagine, Inc. has invested an additional 70,000 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $182,000) into Omagine LLC.
 
(ii)
Omagine Inc. will invest the OMAG Final Equity Investment of 210,000 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $546,000) into Omagine LLC after the DA is signed but before the Financing Agreement Date. Investment of the OMAG Final Equity Investment by Omagine, Inc. is not contingent upon the occurrence of the Financing Agreement Date. As of the date hereof 41,000 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $106,600) of the OMAG Final Equity Investment has been advanced by Omagine, Inc. to Omagine LLC.

The Shareholder Agreement defines the “Financing Agreement Date” as the day upon which Omagine LLC and an investment fund, lender or other person first execute and deliver a legally binding agreement pursuant to which such investment fund, lender or other person agrees to provide debt financing for the first phase or for any or all phases of the Omagine Project.
 
Omagine, Inc. and JOL made the 20,000 Omani Rial ($52,000) OMAG Initial Equity Investment into Omagine LLC in 2009.
 
Omagine, Inc. and the New Shareholders invested a further 130,000 Omani Rials ($338,000) into Omagine LLC pursuant to the Shareholder Agreement. Omagine LLC is presently capitalized at 150,000 Omani Rials ($390,000).
 
Omagine, Inc. will make the 210,000 Omani Rial ($546,000) OMAG Final Investment into Omagine LLC after the DA is signed and Omagine LLC will then be capitalized at 360,000 Omani Rials ($936,000). As of the date hereof, Omagine, Inc. has advanced 41,000 Omani Rials ($106,600) of the OMAG Final Equity Investment to Omagine LLC in order to maintain Omagine LLC’s liquidity.

The New Shareholders will make an additional 26,628,125 Omani Rial ($69,233,125) investment (the “Deferred Cash Investment”) into Omagine LLC after the Financing Agreement Date occurs and Omagine LLC will then be capitalized at 26,988,125 Omani Rials ($70,169,125).
 
The capital of Omagine LLC will likely be increased further at a later date if and when the non-cash valuation of the PIK is recorded as a capital investment into Omagine LLC.
 
The Shareholder Agreement also memorializes the PIK capital contribution being made into Omagine LLC by RCA. The PIK represents a portion of RCA’s payment to Omagine LLC for its 25% ownership of Omagine LLC. The value of the PIK will equal the value to Omagine LLC that is ultimately assigned to the provision to Omagine LLC of the approximately 245 acres of beachfront land constituting the Omagine Site which His Majesty the Sultan owned and transferred to the MOT for the specific purpose of having Omagine LLC develop it into the Omagine Project. After the DA is signed, the value of the PIK will be determined by a professional valuation expert in accordance with Omani law and with the concurrence of Omagine LLC’s independent auditor, Deloitte & Touche, (M.E.) & Co. LLC.
 
The Shareholder Agreement defines the “Pre-Development Expense Amount” as the total amount of Omagine Project related expenses incurred by Omagine, Inc. and JOL prior to the signing of the DA. Such Pre-Development Expense Amount expenses were heretofore incurred by Omagine, Inc. and JOL and continue to be incurred by Omagine, Inc. with respect to the planning, concept design, re-design, engineering, financing, capital raising costs and promotion of the Omagine Project and the negotiation and conclusion of the DA with the Government.
 
The Shareholder Agreement (i) estimates that, as of the date of the Shareholder Agreement (April 20, 2011), the Pre-Development Expense Amount was approximately nine (9) million U.S. dollars, and (ii) defines the Success Fee as being equal to ten (10) million dollars.
 
As provided for in the Shareholder Agreement, Omagine, Inc. will receive payment in full from Omagine LLC of:
 
 
(i)
the Pre-Development Expense Amount and,
 
(ii)
the $10 million Success Fee.
The Shareholder Agreement also defines the date subsequent to the Financing Agreement Date when Omagine LLC draws down the first amount of debt financing as the “Draw Date”.
 
The ten (10) million dollar Success Fee will be paid to Omagine, Inc. in five annual two (2) million dollar installments beginning on or within ten (10) days after the Draw Date.
 
Fifty percent (50%) of the Pre-Development Expense Amount will be paid to Omagine, Inc. on or within ten (10) days after the Draw Date and the remaining fifty percent (50%) will be paid to Omagine, Inc. in five equal annual installments beginning on the first anniversary of the Draw Date.
 
Management presently intends to pursue the sale of a further percentage of Omagine LLC’s equity to one or more investors as soon as reasonably possible subsequent to the signing of the DA and management presently believes it can maintain Omagine, Inc.’s majority control of Omagine LLC while successfully selling such Omagine LLC equity to new investors. Management remains optimistic that subsequent to the signing of the DA, Omagine LLC will be able to sell a percentage of its equity to one or more investors for an amount in excess of the average cash investment amount paid by the New Shareholders.
 
As specified above, the total amount of cash investments into Omagine LLC by Omagine, Inc. and the New Shareholders (the OMAG Initial Investment plus the New Investment) will be 26,988,125 Omani Rials which is equivalent to approximately $70,169,125 (the “Cash Capital”) and although Omagine, Inc. and the New Shareholders will have invested an aggregate of 360,000 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $936,000) before the Financing Agreement Date, 98.7% of such Cash Capital or 26,628,125 Omani Rials, which is equivalent to approximately $69,233,125, (the “Deferred Cash Investment”) will not be invested by the New Shareholders or received by Omagine LLC until the Financing Agreement Date.

The Financing Agreement Date is presently projected by management to occur within twelve months after the signing of the DA. If however the financial resources are available to Omagine, Inc., then Omagine, Inc. and Omagine LLC may at their option, choose to trigger the Financing Agreement Date earlier (and thereby trigger the $69,233,125 Deferred Cash Investment into Omagine LLC) by having Omagine, Inc. make a secured loan to Omagine LLC to finance the first phase of the development of the Omagine Project. The first phase of the development of the Omagine Project is expected to constitute primarily initial design work and its scope and budgeted cost will be decided upon by Omagine LLC shortly after the DA is signed. Pursuant to the provisions of the Shareholder Agreement, the date on which such a loan from Omagine, Inc. to Omagine LLC is made, if it is made, would constitute a Financing Agreement Date and would therefore trigger the injection into Omagine LLC of the $69,233,125 Deferred Cash Investment.
 
While it will have the financial capacity to undertake certain limited initial planning and design activities after the DA is signed, if Omagine LLC wishes to begin more extensive design and development activities shortly after the DA is signed, it will have to accelerate the timing of the first Financing Agreement Date or sell additional equity or raise additional alternative financing (or a combination of some or all of the foregoing). Otherwise Omagine LLC will have to wait until the debt financing and Deferred Cash Investment are received after the first Financing Agreement Date occurs in order to perform such extensive design and development activities.
 
The Shareholder Agreement also memorializes the PIK capital contribution being made into Omagine LLC by RCA. The PIK represents a portion of RCA’s payment to Omagine LLC for its 25% ownership of Omagine LLC. The value of the PIK will equal the value to Omagine LLC that is ultimately assigned to the provision to Omagine LLC of the approximately 245 acres of beachfront land constituting the Omagine Site which His Majesty the Sultan owned and transferred to the MOT for the specific purpose of having Omagine LLC develop it into the Omagine Project. After the DA is signed, the value of the PIK will be determined by a professional valuation expert in accordance with Omani law and with the concurrence of Omagine LLC’s independent auditor.
 
Subsequent to the abovementioned investments being made, the Cash Capital of Omagine LLC will be 26,988,125 Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $70,169,125). The total capital of Omagine LLC will likely be increased further at a later date if and when the non-cash valuation of the PIK is recorded as a capital investment into Omagine LLC.
 
The excellent location of the Omagine Site is universally recognized by local market participants and the significance to the Company of the provision of the Omagine Site to Omagine LLC is enormous. Irrespective of the future PIK valuation as a capital investment, the provision of the Omagine Site to Omagine LLC will be a primary driver of future Company revenue. The benefits accruing to Omagine LLC and the Company from the Omagine Site will be material and significant.
 
Management believes that the PIK and the Cash Capital are the most important parts of Omagine LLC’s capital structure and that they were the most difficult to arrange since they are the highest risk portion of such equity capital structure. As of the date hereof, both the PIK and the Cash Capital are memorialized in the legally binding Shareholder Agreement.
 
All of the aforementioned investment amounts, ownership percentages and other terms and conditions of the Shareholder Agreement were negotiated by Omagine, Inc. management on behalf of Omagine LLC in arms-length transactions between Omagine LLC and the New Shareholders. Other than their present ownership positions in Omagine LLC, none of the New Shareholders are affiliates of the Company.
 
The Shareholder Agreement also specifies, among other things, the corporate governance and management policies of Omagine LLC and it provides for the Omagine LLC shares presently owned by JOL to be transferred to Omagine, Inc. subsequent to the signing of the DA. The foregoing summary of the terms of the Shareholder Agreement does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Shareholder Agreement. The Shareholder Agreement is Exhibit 10.3 hereto.

Financial Adviser
 
BNP Paribas S.A. (“BNPP”) is a French global banking group headquartered in Paris, France with its second global headquarters located in London, England.
 
On January 2, 2013, Omagine LLC signed a letter of intent (“LOI”) with BNP Paribas, Wholesale Banking, Bahrain through its Corporate & Investment Banking department (“BNP Paribas CIB”) and BNP Paribas Real Estate Property and Management LLC (“BNP Paribas Real Estate”).
 
The LOI memorializes the parties’ discussions and proposals with regards to the Omagine Project as follows:
 
 
(a)
Omagine LLC intends to appoint BNP Paribas CIB as the financial advisor to Omagine LLC and to arrange the financing for the Omagine Project, including evaluating various funding, capital and debt structures available to Omagine LLC; and
 
(b)
Omagine LLC intends to appoint BNP Paribas Real Estate for real estate advisory services to Omagine LLC and to assist Omagine LLC by, among other things, providing a full financial feasibility assessment and a market feasibility study for the Omagine Project. This study will be utilized by BNP Paribas CIB in arranging the project financing.
The LOI is non-binding and subject to the execution of a definitive agreement between the parties.
 
As previously disclosed (i) Omagine LLC has held discussions with and received letters of interest and “comfort letters” in support of the Omagine Project from some of the largest banks in the MENA Region including three banks in Oman, and (ii) the Company and Omagine LLC have a longstanding relationship with Bank Muscat SAOG ("BankMuscat") which is 30% owned by RCA and is the largest financial institution in Oman. After the DA is signed, Omagine LLC plans to nominate an Omani bank to be a joint-venture partner with BNP Paribas CIB with respect to the syndication of the debt financing required for the Omagine Project ("Construction Financing").
 
As presently contemplated by the LOI, BNP Paribas CIB (and an Omani bank as its joint-venture partner) will be engaged by Omagine LLC as its financial advisor to assist Omagine LLC in arranging the necessary Construction Financing for the Omagine Project and other financing for Omagine LLC as may be required. We have had extensive discussions with a number of MENA Region financial institutions with respect to such Construction Financing and we are presently in receipt of six “bank comfort letters” in support of the Omagine Project from some of the largest banks in the MENA Region – including three banks in Oman. These discussions will be advanced further and continued by BNP Paribas CIB on our behalf. With BNP Paribas CIB leading this effort, management is optimistic with respect to Omagine LLC’s prospects for arranging the Construction Financing for the Omagine Project but recognizes that given present economic and market conditions, it is not a trivial task and will be challenging. The DA, which is presently agreed and approved (but not yet signed), recognizes and addresses this issue when it states, in relevant part:
 
“The Government recognises that the Project Company intends to raise limited recourse financing in relation to the Project and that Lenders may expect to be afforded certain rights in relation to it. Accordingly, the Project Company will by or before the completion of twelve (12) months from the Execution Date enter into a written term sheet with the Lenders for the financing of the first phase, any other phase or all of the Project (a “Term Sheet”). If the Project Company has not delivered a copy of such Term Sheet to the Government by or before the expiry of the twelve (12) month period referred to above, this Development Agreement then shall have no further effect.”
 
MENA Region banks and financial institutions continue to maintain high levels of liquidity but the project financing environment in Oman and the MENA Region remains cautious after the recent worldwide bank liquidity problems and Eurozone debt crisis. BNP Paribas CIB has deep and wide-ranging expertise in the project financing markets and as part of its normal business activities it is in regular contact with MENA Region banks and international financial institutions regarding the status of and conditions prevailing in the project finance marketplace. The Company is optimistic that BNP Paribas CIB will be able to arrange the necessary project financing for the Omagine Project. Management believes and BNP Paribas CIB concurs, that there is currently a high degree of liquidity and a strong appetite among MENA Region banks and financial institutions for lending to, and investing in, sound development projects in the MENA Region. The banks and other financial institutions and advisers with which we have discussed the Omagine Project (including BNP Paribas CIB and BNP Paribas Real Estate) have been uniformly impressed with the quality of the Omagine LLC shareholders.
 
 
12

 
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we continue to be of the opinion that the project finance market in Oman remains challenging. The market intelligence garnered by management indicates that local bankers and market participants believe that both transaction volume and pricing in the Omani real estate market are steadily improving. Management plans to obtain third party verification of its assumptions and beliefs by engaging BNP Paribas Real Estate to perform a market feasibility study for the Omagine Project promptly after the DA is signed. BNP Paribas Real Estate will also simultaneously perform a full financial feasibility assessment of the Omagine Project. These studies and assessments will then be utilized by Omagine LLC to fine tune its development plans, and by BNP Paribas CIB in arranging the necessary Construction Financing and other financing for Omagine LLC as may be required.
 
Assuming the DA is signed in April 2014, the Company should be well positioned to benefit from the ongoing and improving market conditions in both real estate and project financing since, from a timing perspective, Omagine LLC plans to begin a year or more of intensive design and planning activities after the DA is signed, followed by the launch of residential and commercial sales at the Omagine Project. Assuming the DA is signed in April 2014, the launch date for residential and commercial sales would be planned to occur in mid-2015. While management views most of the past delays by the Government as being adverse to the Company’s best interests (See: “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Liquidity and Capital Resources”), it recognizes that the continuing recovery of the project finance and local real estate markets will contribute positively to the Company’s future prospects if the DA is signed in April 2014.
 
The financial results of Omagine LLC are included in the consolidated financial results of the Company in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. If and when the Financing Agreement Date occurs, the Company will experience a substantial increase in capital of approximately $42 million which is 60% of the approximately $70 million of Cash Capital which will be recorded as capital at such time on Omagine LLC’s financial statements and reflected in the Company’s consolidated financial statements. At or about that same time the Company may experience an additional substantial, but as yet undetermined, increase in its capital, which increase will be equal to 60% of the valuation of the PIK, provided that the value of the PIK is recorded as capital on Omagine LLC’s financial statements.
 
The capital of Omagine LLC, proceeds from the sales, if any, by Omagine LLC of additional equity stakes, bank borrowings and the proceeds from sales of its residential and commercial properties, are expected to be utilized by Omagine LLC to develop the Omagine Project. Omagine LLC's ongoing financial results will be included in the consolidated financial statements of the Company as appropriate for as long as Omagine, Inc. remains a shareholder of Omagine LLC.
 
Subsequent to the signing of the Development Agreement, the value of the Omagine Site will be definitively determined by a qualified independent real estate appraiser and such valuation will be utilized to determine the value of the PIK. Such appraisal and PIK valuation will be utilized by BNP Paribas CIB in their discussions with banks and other financial institutions in order to arrange the Construction Financing.
 
The DA as presently contemplated and agreed (but not yet signed) allows for sales and pre-sales of any of the residential or commercial buildings that will be developed and built on the Omagine Site. Because the Omagine Project will be licensed as an ITC, the Project Land underlying such residences or commercial properties may be sold to the buyer of such residences or commercial properties and the freehold title to such Project Land and properties may be transferred to such buyers at the closing of such sales transactions. The increase over the last several years in the value of the Project Land is expected to have a positive effect on revenue from the sale of residential and commercial properties and on the valuation of the PIK.
 
As is present practice in Oman, the Company anticipates that, all sales contracts with third party purchasers of residential or commercial properties will stipulate the payment to Omagine LLC by such purchasers of (i) a deposit on signing of such sales contract, and (ii) progress payments during the construction period of the relevant property covered by such sales contract. Since the aggregate of such deposit and progress payments before and during the construction of the relevant property is expected to be approximately 85% of the sales price of the relevant property stipulated in such sales contract, the Company anticipates that (i) the construction costs for the vast majority of such properties will be “owner-financed” by the relevant purchaser, and (ii) it will therefore not be necessary for Omagine LLC to utilize any Construction Financing from its banks in order to pay for such construction costs. Management expects that this commonly accepted sales contract and payment process will significantly benefit Omagine LLC by reducing its aggregate requirements for Construction Financing from its banks.
 
 
13

 
 
The UA and DA also obligate Omagine LLC to pay the Government twenty-five (25) Omani Rials (equivalent to approximately $65) for each square meter of Project Land purchased directly by Omagine LLC or sold by Omagine LLC to any third party during the Term (the “Land Price Payments”). Such Land Price Payments are not due or owing to the Government from Omagine LLC until the time that Omagine LLC legally transfers the freehold title to such land to such purchasers, which time will coincide with the closing of the sale of such properties. Such closings will only occur after (i) the properties are fully constructed, and (ii) Omagine LLC has received final payment from the purchaser of the relevant sales contract amount for such properties. Omagine LLC’s financing profile will therefore be further enhanced since it will not be obligated to make any Land Price Payments to the Government until after it has already received 100% of the contracted sales price amount from the relevant purchaser at the closing when the freehold title to such land and property is transferred to the purchaser.
 
At the present time, the average selling price for land at the Omagine Site is conservatively estimated by local real estate agents to be at least 250 Omani Rials (approximately $650) per square meter.
 
Other Arab countries in the MENA Region have experienced and are experiencing demonstrations of discontent with the rule of their heads of state and in some cases these demonstrations are being met with violent pushback by some MENA Region governments but this was not and is not the case in politically and economically stable Oman. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Oman has experienced several low-intensity demonstrations against government corruption and with respect to job opportunities and wages for Omanis (a very few of which involved violent behavior) and these have been met by His Majesty and the Government with pro-active positive measures and economic and political initiatives (including an aggressive anti-corruption campaign and widely acclaimed elections) to address the expressed concerns of the citizens of Oman. Short term work stoppages and strikes with respect to labor matters accompanied by non-violent demonstrations now occur from time to time in Oman, but these events as well as several newly organized and legally allowed labor unions and the aforementioned anti-corruption campaign, are now regarded as a normal part of the emerging democratic fabric of Omani society.
 
The Company continues the preparation for its anticipated future business activities in various ways including but not limited to: (i) recruiting various executive level personnel for both Omagine, Inc. and Omagine LLC that will be required to ramp up organizationally for the Omagine Project, (ii) examining various methods of raising additional capital for both Omagine, Inc. and Omagine LLC, (iii) negotiating and concluding the legally binding definitive agreement with BNP Paribas CIB and BNP Paribas Real Estate based upon the terms and conditions outlined in the LOI; (iv) negotiating the outlines of initial contracts with CCC-Oman and the other major vendors, contractors, consultants and employees proposed to be involved in the Omagine Project, (v) arranging the appropriate and required legal, accounting, tax and other professional services both in Oman and the U.S., (vi) examining various tax structures, (vii) reviewing and complying (to the extent we are presently able) with the listing requirements of various stock exchanges so we may be prepared to apply for such listing(s) as soon as we are eligible, (viii) examining various other matters we believe will enhance shareholder value, and (ix) examining other potential Company revenue streams which are ancillary to, and derivative of, the Omagine Project.
 
The Company is a development stage entity and is not expected to generate revenue until after the occurrence of an event - the signing of the Development Agreement for the Omagine Project - which, as of the date hereof, has not yet occurred. Moreover, revenue from real estate development associated with the Omagine Project is not expected to occur until subsequent to the Financing Agreement Date. Pursuant to the terms of the Shareholder Agreement, Omagine, Inc. will derive revenue on and subsequent to the Financing Agreement Date from the payment to it by Omagine LLC of (i) the $10 million Success Fee, and (ii) the Pre-Development Expense Amount. The Company plans to enter businesses other than real estate development - and ancillary to and derivative of the Omagine Project - subsequent to signing the Development Agreement and the Company presently expects to generate ongoing revenue streams from such businesses, but no projections of the amount of such revenue, if any, can be made at this time.

All "forward looking statements" contained herein are subject to, known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which could cause Omagine LLC's and therefore the Company's actual results, financial or operating performance or achievements to differ from management's forecasts for them as expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. Assumptions and forecasts contained and expressed herein are based on information available to the Company at the time so furnished and such assumptions and forecasts are as of the date hereof and are, in the opinion of management, reasonable. All such assumptions and forecasts are subject to significant uncertainties and contingencies, many of which are beyond the Company's control, and no assurances can be given that the assumptions are correct or that the forecasts will be realized. Potential investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements which speak only as of the date hereof.
 
Notwithstanding the foregoing forward looking statements, no assurances can be given at this time that the Development Agreement will actually be signed or that the Financing Agreement Date or the anticipated revenues from the Omagine Project will actually occur.
 
Competition
 
The real estate development business in Oman is a competitive business populated by companies with substantially greater financial, managerial and personnel resources than Omagine LLC presently possesses. Management believes that the Company's ability to assemble and coordinate a team of experienced American, European and Middle Eastern consultants in a wide variety of specialized fields was crucial to its advancing the Omagine Project to its present status. Each of these consultants, some of whom depending upon future events may become employees of Omagine, Inc. and/or Omagine LLC, are highly experienced in their respective fields. These fields of expertise include the following: strategic planning; visioning; branding; marketing; Islamic scholarship and research; master planning; architecture; city planning; conceptual design; project management; construction management; general contracting; quantity surveying and costing; interior design; landscape design; art; public policy; engineering (structural, civil, mechanical, electrical, marine); Omani law; cultural and exhibition design; interpretative design; tourism; visitor experience design; recreational operations planning and management; investment banking; structured finance; motion based ride technology; film technology; training; and hotel management. In addition the Company's president, Frank J. Drohan, has over 30 years of experience doing business across most of the Middle East and is familiar with the cultural and business environment of the MENA Region. Mr. Sam Hamdan, who is the Company’s primary strategic consultant and the Deputy Managing Director of Omagine LLC has over 25 years of experience in the MENA Region. Mr. Hamdan is fluent in Arabic and English and, depending on future circumstances, may become Omagine, Inc.'s President subsequent to the Financing Agreement Date.
 
Although several of Omagine LLC's competitors have well established businesses and brand reputations, management believes that Omagine LLC's advantages are (i) the uniqueness of the Omagine Project is particularly attractive to the Government; (ii) the Company's and Omagine LLC's senior management have established strong and trusting relationships with the relevant Government officials; (iii) Omagine LLC’s intention to engage BNP Paribas CIB to be its financial adviser and BNP Paribas Real Estate to be its real estate adviser; and (iv) the Shareholder Agreement, which strongly demonstrates the serious investors and professionals that have been recruited to assist in the development of the Omagine Project. Company management believes Omagine LLC can successfully compete in this marketplace through a combination of unique development concepts, effective relationship management, highly experienced and well regarded financial and real estate advisers, and the utilization of highly professional, competent and experienced sub-contractors and consultants who are well known to the Government.

Engineering, Design, Content Development and Construction
 
The Company does not presently own or directly operate any engineering, design, content development or construction companies or facilities but the Company or Omagine LLC may, depending upon events, establish its own in-house design supervision team and/or enter into joint ventures with firms providing such services. To date, the Company has generally conceived the development concepts and defined the "scope of work" and then, as required, contracted with various designers, architects, contractors and consultants in the United States, Europe and the Middle East to perform the specified tasks. There are many such designers, architects, contractors and consultants available with competitive pricing and the Company does not believe that the loss or inability to perform of any such designer, architect, contractor or consultant would have a material adverse impact on its business or operations. The Company believes it maintains a good working business relationship with its designers, architects, contractors and consultants. As presently planned, all copyrights to all material documents, designs and drawings executed by such independent designers, architects, contractors and consultants are, or will be, the property of either Omagine LLC or Omagine, Inc. (See: "Patents, Copyrights and Trademarks").
 
Subject to the approval of its shareholders and to negotiating and agreeing to a contract, Omagine LLC presently intends to hire Michael Baker Corporation ("Baker") as its Program Manager and Project Manager. Baker is in the business of providing program and project management as well as engineering, design and construction management services to a wide variety of clients including the U.S. Department of Defense and many state governments and commercial clients. The Company has employed Baker through the feasibility and engineering study phases of the Omagine Project and presently anticipates that Omagine LLC will execute an agreement with Baker soon after the signing of the Development Agreement. The Company presently has a contingent obligation to pay Baker an additional fee of $72,000 for past services, but this fee is only payable if the DA is signed by the Government and Omagine LLC. Baker is headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA, with offices throughout the U.S. and in Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates and is experienced in all aspects of design, program management and construction management for large scale construction and development projects of the magnitude of the Omagine Project. Baker has significant program management and construction management contracts with the United States military worldwide, including in the MENA Region. Baker was recently acquired by Integrated Mission Solutions LLC. What effect, if any, this acquisition will have on the Company’s plan to engage Baker as its Program Manager and Project Manager is unknown at this time.
 
The interpretive design, entertainment content, and visitor experience design candidates to be hired by Omagine LLC have been narrowed to a short list of professional companies. It is presently anticipated that subsequent to the signing of the DA, one or more of such companies ("Content Developers") will be engaged by Omagine LLC to transform the Company’s high level strategic vision for the content of the Pearl structures and surrounding areas into physical places offering emotional, intellectual and physical interactions. Each of the prospective Content Developers has serviced a diverse client base, including theme parks, museums, zoos, aquariums and other such complex entertainment centers around the world, including in the MENA Region, and each continues to regularly produce world class attractions globally of the size and scope of the Omagine Project.
 
In order to move into the actual design and development stage of the Omagine Project, Omagine LLC and the Government must first memorialize their agreement to the DA in a signed written document. All of management’s past estimates regarding the timing of the signing of the DA have been incorrect. Management is presently awaiting for a new land deed for the Omagine Site to be procured by MOT from the Ministry of Housing and management expects that immediately thereafter, the DA will be signed by the parties. No date for the DA signing has been set as of the date hereof. In view of the long history of delays by the Government, no assurance can be given at this time when or if the DA will be signed.

Marketing
 
Omagine, Inc. and JOL have engaged in significant marketing, design, promotional and other activities with respect to the Omagine Project and have to date incurred a significant amount of costs associated with these and other general and administrative activities (the "Pre-Development Expense Amount"). The Pre-Development Expense Amount is associated with travel, consulting and professional fees, planning and feasibility studies, design, engineering, and with similar such activities including preparing and making presentations to the Government of Oman.
 
Pursuant to the provisions of the Shareholder Agreement the Pre-Development Expense Amount (estimated to be approximately nine million U.S. dollars as of the date of the Shareholder Agreement) will be reimbursed to Omagine, Inc. by Omagine LLC.
 
Manufacturing and Production
 
The Company does not engage in any manufacturing activities and as such does not maintain any inventory. In the future, Omagine LLC may maintain an inventory of residential and/or commercial properties held for sale to third parties.
 
Patents, Copyrights and Trademarks
 
It is presently intended that either Omagine, LLC or Omagine, Inc. will own (either outright or by assignment) the copyrights to all the material documents, designs and drawings produced and/or executed in relation to the Omagine Project by its employees and/or independent designers, architects and consultants.
 
Omagine, Inc. has filed trademark applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office ("USPTO") for the mark OMAGINE and six related marks (collectively, the "Marks"). Omagine, Inc. has also filed trademark applications for the Marks in Oman and Kuwait within the applicable time periods required.
 
The mark OMAGINE and three of the six related Marks have each been issued a Certificate of Registration from the USPTO and are now officially registered Marks in the United States.
 
The USPTO issued a "Notice of Allowance" with respect to each of the remaining three related Marks (the “Expired Marks”) and the applications for such Expired Marks could have been approved for registration upon the filing of a valid "Statement of Use" attesting that each such Expired Mark was in commercial use. Due to the delays encountered by the Company in signing the DA, the Expired Marks were not put into commercial use by the “Final Statement of Use Deadline” and all three applications for the Expired Marks have expired. The Expired Marks remain of interest to the Company and, depending upon future circumstances, we may file new trademark applications for the Expired Marks with the USPTO.
 
Trademark applications for the OMAGINE Mark and eight related Marks were filed in Oman and all have now been issued Certificates of Registration in Oman. The Mark OMAGINE has been issued a Registration Certificate from the Patent and Trademark Department of the Ministry of Commerce & Industry in Kuwait.
 
 
17

 
 
Government Regulation
 
The Company expects that Omagine LLC will require several Omani governmental licenses, permits and approvals for its properties, services and products during the development, construction and operation of the Omagine Project (collectively, "Licenses and Permits"). The obligation of the Government of Oman to issue all such Licenses and Permits as may be required is specifically detailed in the DA.
 
The Company does not anticipate any negative effects on its or Omagine LLC's business from any existing or probable Omani government laws or regulations. Omagine LLC will incur certain costs and sustain certain effects on its operations as a consequence of its compliance with Omani laws, including environmental laws and regulations, and all such costs and effects are expected to occur as part of the normal course of its business.
 
The Company does not require any U.S. governmental approval of its properties, services, products or activities in Oman nor does the Company anticipate any negative effects on its business from any existing or probable United States or Oman government laws or regulations. Both the Government of the United States and the Government of the Sultanate of Oman have ratified the U.S.- Oman Free Trade Agreement.
 
Employees, Consultants and Employment Benefits
 
As of the date hereof, we have five employees and eleven consultants. We presently plan to hire eight of such consultants as full time employees of Omagine, Inc. or Omagine LLC subsequent to the signing of the DA. None of our employees are represented by a labor union for purposes of collective bargaining. We consider our relations with our employees and consultants to be good. Subsequent to the signing of the Development Agreement the Company intends to significantly increase the number of its full time employees. (See "Executive Compensation" – “Employment Agreements and Consulting Agreement”).
 
 
An investment in our Common Shares is subject to risks inherent to our development stage business. The material risks and uncertainties that management believes affect us are described below. Before making an investment decision, you should carefully consider the risks and uncertainties described below together with all of the other information included in this report including information in the beginning section of this report entitled “Forward Looking Statements”.
 
The risks and uncertainties described below are not the only ones we face. Additional risks and uncertainties that we are unaware of, or that we currently deem immaterial, also may become important factors that affect us. This report is qualified in its entirety by these risk factors.
 
If one or more, or a combination of any of the following risks actually materialize into a negative event or circumstance, our business, financial condition and/or our results of operations could be materially and adversely affected. If this were to happen, the value of our Common Stock could decline significantly.
 
Risk Factors Related to Our Company and Our Business
 
We have experienced extraordinary delays in getting the Development Agreement with the Government of Oman signed.
 
As of the date hereof, the DA governing the development and ownership of the Omagine Project has not yet been signed by our 60% owned subsidiary and the Government of Oman. We have been negotiating this DA with the Government for many years now and have experienced many delays in the process. On February 13, 2014, the Ministry of Tourism (“MOT”) proposed a slight variation to the boundaries of the Omagine Site (the “New Boundaries”). On February 17, 2014, Omagine LLC accepted and agreed to the New Boundaries. On February 18, 2014, Omagine LLC delivered copies of the final Omagine DA to MOT (the “Final DA”). On March 3, 2014, the Company’s president, Frank Drohan, spoke to the Minister of Tourism, His Excellency Ahmed Al-Mahrizi, who informed Mr. Drohan that (i) the Final DA was acceptable, and (ii) MOT had now determined that, since the land for the Omagine Site came from His Majesty, the Sultan, it was also necessary that the Office of Royal Court Affairs consent to the New Boundaries. On March 10, 2014, Mr. Drohan met with Mr. Al-Yahyai of RCA and explained the above matter of the New Boundaries in detail and delivered drawings of the New Boundaries proposed by MOT to Mr. Al-Yahyai. Mr. Al-Yahyai called the President of H.E. Al-Kindi’s office, explained the matter to him and was asked by the President of the RCA Minister’s office to send an official letter in Arabic (not an email) from Omagine LLC to H.E. Al-Kindi explaining the matter and attaching the drawings. On March 11, 2014, Mr. Drohan delivered the letter from Omagine LLC (in Arabic) and the attached drawings requested to Mr. Al-Yahyai at RCA. On March 13, 2014, Mr. Al-Yahyai delivered Mr. Drohan’s letter to H.E. Al-Kindi along with the attached drawings and a covering memorandum from Mr. Al-Yahyai. On March 18, 2014, RCA wrote to MOT consenting to the New Boundaries. On March 26, 2014 MOT informed the Company that it had received RCA’s consent letter and would procure the New Krooki from MOH. We are presently waiting for MOT to receive the New Krooki from MOH. No date for the DA signing has been set as of the date hereof but management presently expects that the DA signing is imminent.

To the best knowledge and belief of the Company and its attorneys, and based on management’s previous meetings and conversations with the Minister of Tourism, other than the requirement to obtain an updated land deed for the Omagine Site, no further barrier to signing the DA exists as of the date hereof and both we and the Government now agree that all matters with respect to the DA have been resolved. We have however been at similar points with the Government in the past and in all of those instances the Government raised new and often pointless issues at the last minute. Although there have been extraordinary delays to date by the Government, the Company believes, based on continued assurances from the Government, that the Government remains eager to conclude and sign the DA. No assurance, however, that the DA will actually be signed can be given at this time. (See: “Description of Business - The Development Agreement”).
 
We are a development stage entity with no history of profitability from the development of real estate and we have incurred significant losses and cannot assure you that we will be profitable in the near term or at all.
 
The Company is a development stage entity (“DSE”) as defined in ASC 915 issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board. We have dedicated the vast majority of our financial resources over the past many years toward the effort to conclude the Development Agreement (“DA”) with the Government of Oman with respect to the Omagine Project. We have encountered numerous delays and as of the date hereof the DA has not yet been signed. As a result we have incurred significant losses over the past few years, including net losses of $2,640,590 for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 and $2,789,976 for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012, primarily due to an absence of revenue due to our being a DSE and to expenses, including significant non-cash expenses related to stock options, associated with the design, development and promotion of the Omagine Project. We expect to continue to incur such losses and expenses over the near term, which will adversely impact our overall financial performance and results of operations. The Omagine Project may never come to fruition, and if it does it still may never result in a profit to the Company. Sales of our proposed real estate development properties, and income, if any, from the Omagine Project may never generate sufficient revenues to fund our continuing operations. We cannot assure you that we will be profitable in the near term or at all.
 
Because of our status as a DSE and our limited history and the potential for competition, an investment in our Company is inherently risky.
 
Because we are a development stage company with a limited history, our operations are subject to numerous risks similar to those of a start-up company. We expect the real estate development business to be highly competitive because many developers have access to the same market. Substantially all of them have greater financial resources and longer operating histories than we have and can be expected to compete within the business in which we engage and intend to engage. We cannot assure you that we will have the necessary resources to be competitive.
 
Our ability to use net operating loss carryovers to reduce future tax payments may be limited or restricted.
 
We have generated significant net operating losses (“NOLs”) as a result of our recent losses. We generally are able to carry NOLs forward to reduce taxable income in future years. However, our ability to utilize the NOLs is subject to the rules of Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code. Section 382 generally restricts the use of NOLs after an “ownership change.” An ownership change occurs if, among other things, the shareholders (or specified groups of shareholders) who own or have owned, directly or indirectly, 5% or more of a corporation’s common stock or are otherwise treated as 5% shareholders under Section 382 and the Treasury regulations promulgated thereunder increase their aggregate percentage ownership of that corporation’s stock by more than 50 percentage points over the lowest percentage of the stock owned by these shareholders over a three-year rolling period. In the event of an ownership change, Section 382 imposes an annual limitation on the amount of taxable income a corporation may offset with NOL carry forwards. This annual limitation is generally equal to the product of the value of the corporation’s stock on the date of the ownership, multiplied by the long-term tax-exempt rate published monthly by the Internal Revenue Service. Any unused annual limitation may be carried over to later years until the applicable expiration date for the respective NOL carry forwards.
 
We do not believe that the Rights Offering and Warrant Distribution caused an “ownership change” within the meaning of Section 382. However, we cannot ensure that our ability to use our NOLs to offset income will not become limited in the future. As a result, we could pay taxes earlier and in larger amounts than would be the case if our NOLs were available to reduce our federal income taxes without restriction. At December 31, 2013, the Company had federal NOLs of approximately $14,104,000, expiring in various amounts from fiscal year 2017 to fiscal year 2033. Current United States income tax law limits the amount of loss available to offset against future taxable income when a substantial change in ownership occurs.
 
 
19

 
 
We may not be able to conduct successful operations in the future.
 
The results of our operations will depend, among other things, upon our ability to develop and market the Omagine Project. Furthermore, our proposed operations may not generate income sufficient to meet operating expenses or may generate income and capital appreciation, if any, at rates lower than those anticipated or necessary to sustain ourselves. Our operations may be affected by many factors, some known by us, some unknown, and some which are beyond our control. Any of these problems, or a combination thereof, could have a materially adverse effect on our viability as an ongoing enterprise and might cause the investment of our shareholders to be impaired or lost.
 
While our 2013 audited financial statements assume we will continue our operations on a going concern basis, the opinion of our independent auditors on those financial statements contained an explanatory paragraph stating that there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.
 
The opinion of our independent auditors on our 2013 audited financial statements states that the presentation of the Company’s financial statements is in accordance with the guidance contained in ASC 915 for financial statements of development stage entities, and such opinion also contained an explanatory paragraph that there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our audited financial statements were prepared under the assumption that we will continue our operations on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the discharge of liabilities in the normal course of business. Our financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if we are unable to continue as a going concern. Although we have entered into the SEDA (as hereinafter defined) and have recently raised additional capital via the Rights Offering and private placements of our Common Stock, if we sustain unanticipated losses and we cannot continue as a going concern, our shareholders may lose all of their investment in the Company.
 
To fully develop our business plan we will need additional financing.
 
We expect to continue to rely principally upon the financing received as a result of sales of Common Stock made pursuant to the SEDA (See: “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations – Liquidity and Capital Resources”). For the past several years we have relied principally upon financing from sales of Common Stock made pursuant to the SEDA (as hereinafter defined), the Rights Offering and the First SEDA. We have also raised limited private placement funds during the past several years and may be required to do so in the future. We cannot guarantee the success of this plan. We will have to obtain additional financing in order to conduct our business in a manner consistent with our proposed operations. There is no guaranty that additional funds will be available when, and if, needed. If we are unable to obtain financing, or if its terms are too costly, we may be forced to curtail expansion of operations until such time as alternative financing may be arranged, which could have a materially adverse impact on our operations and our shareholders' investment. It is impossible to predict if any Warrants will ever be exercised because the market price of a Common Share as of the date hereof is lower than either of the Warrant Exercise Prices. Although we cannot be absolutely certain, the Company believes that there is virtually no probability that any Warrants will be exercised unless the market price for a share of the Company’s Common Stock trades materially above the relevant Warrant Exercise Price prior to the Warrant Expiration Date or Redemption Date. (See: “Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations - Liquidity and Capital Resources - Rights Offering and Warrant Distribution”).
 
We anticipate that we will be subject to intense competition.
 
We will face intense competition in the development of real estate in Oman. Other developers have started developing real estate in nearby areas with similar residential developments.
 
Even after the Rights Offering and entering into the SEDA, we lack capital.
 
Even after the conclusion of the Rights Offering in 2012 and our entry into the SEDA, we will require additional funds to sustain our operations as presently contemplated. There can be no guaranty that such additional funds will be available in the future. If we are unable to obtain additional financing as required, or if its terms are too costly, we may be forced to curtail the expansion of our operations until such time as alternative financing may be arranged which could have a materially adverse impact on our operations and our shareholders' investments.
 
 
20

 
 
Our ultimate success will be dependent upon management.
 
Our success is dependent upon the skill and decision making ability of our directors and executive officers, who are Frank J. Drohan, Charles P. Kuczynski, Louis J. Lombardo, William Hanley and Sam Hamdan. The loss of any or all of these individuals could have a material adverse impact on our operations. We do not presently have a written employment agreement with any of our officers or directors (See: “Executive Compensation – Employment Agreements”). We have not obtained key man life insurance on the lives of any of these individuals. Our success depends in large part on our ability to attract and retain key people and consultants. If we are not able to retain and recruit qualified personnel, which we require now and will require to conduct our operations after the DA is signed, our business and our ability to successfully implement our business plan could be adversely affected.
 
We will rely on dividends from Omagine LLC for most of our revenue.
 
Because we are a holding company with no significant operations other than the proposed operations of our 60% owned subsidiary, Omagine LLC, we will depend upon dividends from Omagine LLC for a substantial portion of our future revenues. Omagine LLC has generated no revenue to date and we do not anticipate that Omagine LLC will be in a position to pay dividends until after the development of the Omagine Project is well underway, an event that, as of the date hereof, is uncertain to occur.
 
We are subject to risks associated with investments in real estate.
 
The value of our proposed properties and our projected income therefrom may decline due to developments that adversely affect real estate generally and those that are specific to our proposed properties. General factors that may adversely affect our potential real estate holdings include:
 
increases in interest rates;
adverse changes in foreign exchange rates;
a decline in prevailing rental rates for the properties we intend to own and lease;
a general tightening of the availability of credit and project financing facilities;
a decline in economic conditions in Oman;
an increase in competition for customers or a decrease in demand by customers for the residential and commercial properties we plan to develop and offer for sale;
a decline in prevailing sales prices for the properties we intend to develop and offer for sale;
an increase in supply in Oman of property types similar to those proposed to be developed by us;
declines in consumer spending during an economic recession or recovery from an economic recession that adversely affect our revenue; and
the adoption by the relevant government authorities in Oman of more restrictive laws and governmental regulations, including more restrictive zoning, licensing, land use, building or environmental regulations or increased real estate taxes.
 
Additional factors may adversely affect the value of our proposed properties and our projected income therefrom, including:
 
· 
failure to sign a development agreement with the Government of Oman;
· 
adverse changes in the perceptions of prospective purchasers or users of the attractiveness of the properties proposed to be developed by us;
·
opposition from local community or political groups with respect to development or construction at a particular site;
· 
a change in existing comprehensive zoning plans or zoning or environmental or business licensing regulations that impose additional restrictions on use or requirements with respect to the properties proposed to be developed by us;
·
our inability to provide adequate management and maintenance or to obtain adequate insurance for the properties proposed to be developed by us;
·
an increase in operating costs;
·
new development of a competitor's property in close proximity to the Omagine Project;
·
earthquakes, floods or underinsured or uninsured natural disasters; and
·
terrorism, political instability or civil unrest in Oman or the MENA Region.
 
The occurrence or existence of one or more of the events or circumstances described above could result in significant delays or unexpected expenses. If any of these events occur or circumstances come into existence, we may not achieve our projected returns on the Omagine Project and we could lose some or all of our investment in Omagine LLC and in the Omagine Project.
 
 
21

 
 
We are subject to risks associated with real estate development.
 
The Omagine Project is subject to significant risks relating to Omagine LLC’s ability to complete it on time and within budget. Factors that may result in the Omagine Project or any other development project we may undertake in Oman or elsewhere exceeding budget or being prevented from completion include:
 
· 
an inability to obtain or delays in obtaining zoning, environmental, occupancy or other required governmental permits, approvals and authorizations;
·
an inability to secure sufficient financing on favorable terms, including an inability to obtain or refinance construction loans;
·
a general tightening of the availability of credit and project financing facilities;
·
the prices of housing and commercial properties in Oman and consumer and/or business confidence; any of which could affect Omagine LLC’s ability to construct and/or sell homes and to construct, sell and/or lease commercial properties and/or to secure financing;
·
construction delays or cost overruns, either of which may increase project development costs; and
·
an increase in commodity costs.

If any of the forgoing occurs or exists, we may not achieve our projected returns on the Omagine Project and we could lose some or all of our investment in Omagine LLC and in the Omagine Project or in other properties we may then have under development.
 
We are vulnerable to concentration risks because our proposed operations are presently exclusively in Oman and our future operations are planned to be exclusively in Oman and the MENA Region market. Our real estate activities are presently concentrated exclusively on the Omagine Project to be located in Oman. Because of such geographic and project specific concentration, our operations are more vulnerable to Oman and MENA Region economic downturns and adverse project-specific events than those of larger, more diversified companies.
 
The performance of Oman’s economy will greatly affect the values of the properties proposed to be developed by us and consequently our prospects for sales and revenue growth. The Oman economy is heavily influenced by the prices of crude oil and natural gas which are Oman’s main export products and sources of revenue. Fluctuations in the international price of crude oil directly affect Oman’s revenue and budget considerations and a decrease in government supported projects and employment because of budget cuts or otherwise, could adversely affect the economy in Oman.
 
Our results of operations and financial condition will be greatly affected by the performance of the real estate industry.
 
Our real estate activities are, and will continue to be, subject to numerous factors beyond our control, including local real estate market conditions in Oman and in areas where our potential customers reside, substantial existing and potential competition, general economic conditions in Oman, the MENA Region and internationally, fluctuations in interest rates and mortgage availability and changes in demographic conditions. Real estate markets have historically been subject to strong periodic cycles driven by numerous factors beyond the control of market participants.
 
Real estate investments often cannot easily be converted into cash and market values may be adversely affected by economic or political circumstances, market fundamentals, competition or demographic conditions. Because of the effect these factors may have on real estate values and because of the long length of the project development cycle, the future sales prices for our individual proposed properties or the future level of our sales revenue from the operation, sales and/or leasing of our various proposed properties, is impossible to predict with certainty and difficult to predict with accuracy.
 
Our real estate operations will also be dependent upon the availability and cost of mortgage financing for our potential customers to the extent they finance the purchase of the residences or commercial properties we intend to develop and offer for sale.
 
The real estate business is very competitive and many of our competitors are larger and financially stronger than we are.
 
The real estate business is highly competitive. We compete with a large number of companies and individuals, and most of them have significantly greater financial, managerial and other resources than we have. Our competitors include local developers who are committed primarily to the Oman market and also international developers who acquire properties throughout the MENA Region. Because we are a development stage company with a limited history, our operations are subject to numerous risks similar to those of a start-up company. We cannot assure that we will have the necessary resources to be competitive.
 
 
22

 
 
Our operations are subject to political risks.
 
The recent and ongoing civil and political unrest in the MENA Region, the U.S. and NATO military intervention in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya, the terrorist attacks in the U.S., Europe and the MENA Region, and the potential for additional future terrorist acts and civil and/or political unrest have created economic, political and social uncertainties that could materially and adversely affect our business. Further acts of civil and/or political unrest or terrorism could be directed against the U,S. or Oman either domestically or abroad. These acts of terrorism or civil unrest could be directed against properties and personnel of American companies that work abroad, particularly companies such as ours that operate in the MENA Region. Recent and ongoing anti-corruption trials in Oman involving alleged bribery involved in contract administration and awards (especially in the oil sector) involving dozens of government officials and private individuals, including two senior executives of CCC-Oman, have been ongoing in Muscat’s Court of First Instance. Results of these trials are now regularly reported in the local newspapers and to date, the trials have returned verdicts against several high-profile government officials and business people, including a senior CCC-Oman executive. Although, the Company is not involved in any way and does not foresee any impact on its business or that of Omagine LLC as a result of the ongoing anti-corruption campaign or as a result of any present or future outcome therefrom, because CCC-Oman is a shareholder of Omagine LLC, it is possible, though quite unlikely, that the aforementioned involvement of an executive at CCC-Oman may, for political considerations unknown to us, adversely affect Omagine LLC’s reputation in Oman. Civil and/or political unrest, terrorism, war, political considerations, and/or military developments may materially and adversely affect our business and profitability and the prices of our Common Stock in ways that we cannot predict at this time.
 
Our operations are subject to natural risks.
 
Our performance may be adversely affected by weather conditions that delay development or damage property.
 
Risk Factors Related to Our Common Stock
 
Our stock price may be volatile and you may not be able to resell your shares at or above your purchase price.
 
There has been and continues to be a limited public market for our Common Stock. Although our Common Stock trades on the OTCQB, an active trading market for our shares has not developed and may never develop or be sustained. If you purchase shares of our Common Stock, you may not be able to resell those shares at or above the price you paid. The market price of our Common Stock may fluctuate significantly in response to numerous factors, some of which are beyond our control, including the following:
 
failure to sign the DA with the Government of Oman;
the exercise of Warrants;
actual or anticipated fluctuations in our operating results;
changes in financial estimates by securities analysts or our failure to perform in line with such estimates;
changes in market valuations of other real estate companies, particularly those that sell products similar to ours;
announcements by us or our competitors of significant innovations, acquisitions, strategic investors or partnerships, joint ventures or capital commitments; or
departure of key personnel.
 
Much of our Common Stock is currently restricted. As restrictions on resale end, the market price of our Common Stock could drop significantly if the holders of restricted shares sell them or are perceived by the market as intending to sell them. This could cause the market price of our Common Stock to drop significantly, even if our business is doing well.
 
Our Common Stock has a limited public trading market.
 
While our Common Stock currently trades on the OTCQB, the market for our Common Stock is limited and sporadic. We cannot assure that such market will improve in the future, even if our Common Stock is ever listed on a national stock exchange. We cannot assure that an investor will be able to liquidate his investment without considerable delay, if at all. If a more active market for our Common Stock does develop, the price may be highly volatile. The factors which we have discussed in this document may have a significant impact on the market price of our Common Stock. The relatively low price of our Common Stock may keep many brokerage firms from engaging in transactions in our Common Stock.
 
 
23

 
 
The over-the-counter market for stock such as ours has had extreme price and volume fluctuations.
 
The securities of companies such as ours have historically experienced extreme price and volume fluctuations during certain periods. These broad market fluctuations and other factors, such as new product developments and trends in our industry and in the investment markets generally, as well as economic conditions and annual variations in our operational results may have a negative effect on the market price of our Common Stock.
 
Additional stock offerings may dilute current stockholders.
 
Given our plans and our expectation that we will need additional capital and personnel, we may need to issue additional shares of capital stock or securities convertible into or exercisable for shares of capital stock, including preferred stock, options or warrants. The issuance of additional shares of capital stock for any of these reasons or pursuant to the exercise of Warrants may dilute the ownership of our current stockholders.
 
Our management collectively beneficially owns approximately 30.7% of our Common Stock and this concentration of ownership may have the effect of preventing a change in control.
 
Assuming their ownership of the shares of Common Stock underlying unexercised Stock Options and Warrants, our officers and directors collectively beneficially own approximately thirty and seven-tenths percent (30.7%) of our shares of Common Stock (See: “Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management”). As a result, if our officers and directors act in concert, they will have the ability by virtue of their voting power to exercise substantial influence over our business with respect to the election of directors and all other matters requiring action by stockholders. Such concentration of share ownership may have the effect of discouraging, delaying or preventing a change in control of the Company.
 
Our ability to issue preferred stock may adversely affect the rights of holders of our Common Stock and may make takeovers more difficult, possibly preventing you from obtaining the optimal share price.
 
Our Certificate of Incorporation authorizes the issuance of shares of "blank check" preferred stock, which would have the designations, rights and preferences as may be determined from time to time by the Board of Directors. Accordingly, the Board of Directors is empowered, without shareholder approval, to issue preferred stock with dividend, liquidation, conversion, voting or other rights that could adversely affect the voting power or other rights of the holders of the Common Stock. The issuance of preferred stock could be used, under certain circumstances, as a method of discouraging, delaying or preventing a change in control of the Company.
 
Our Common Stock is subject to the “penny stock” rules of the SEC, which may make it more difficult for you to sell our Common Stock.
 
The SEC has adopted Rule 15g-9 which establishes the definition of a "penny stock," for the purposes relevant to us, as any equity security that has a market price of less than $5.00 per share or with an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exceptions. For any transaction involving a penny stock, unless exempt, the rules require that:
 
the broker or dealer approve a person's account for transactions in penny stocks; and
the broker or dealer receives from the investor a written agreement to the transaction, setting forth the identity and quantity of the penny stock to be purchased.
In order to approve a person's account for transactions in penny stocks, the broker or dealer must:
 
obtain the financial information and investment experience and objectives of the person; and
make a reasonable determination that (a) transactions in penny stocks are suitable for that person, and (b) the person has sufficient knowledge and experience in financial matters to be capable of evaluating the risks of transactions in penny stocks.
The broker or dealer must also deliver, prior to any transaction in a penny stock, a disclosure schedule prescribed by the SEC relating to the penny stock market, which, in highlight form:
 
sets forth the basis on which the broker or dealer made the suitability determination; and
states that the broker or dealer received a signed, written agreement from the investor prior to the transaction.
Disclosure also has to be made about the risks of investing in penny stocks in both public offerings and in secondary trading and about the commissions payable to both the broker-dealer and the registered representative, current quotations for the securities and the rights and remedies available to an investor in cases of fraud in penny stock transactions. Finally, monthly statements have to be sent disclosing recent price information for the penny stock held in the account and information on the limited market in penny stocks. The regulations applicable to penny stocks may severely affect the market liquidity for the shares of our Common Stock owned by you and could limit your ability to sell such securities in the secondary market.
 
 
24

 
 
As an issuer of “penny stock”, the protection provided by the federal securities laws relating to forward looking statements does not apply to us.
 
Although federal securities laws provide a safe harbor for forward-looking statements made by a public company that files reports under the federal securities laws, this safe harbor is not available to issuers of penny stocks. As a result, we will not have the benefit of this safe harbor protection in the event of any legal action based upon a claim that the material provided by us contained a material misstatement of fact or was misleading in any material respect because of our failure to include any statements necessary to make the statements not misleading. Such an action could hurt our financial condition.
 
Other than the distribution of the Rights and Warrants in our 2012 Rights Offering and Warrant Distribution, we have not paid dividends in the past and do not expect to pay dividends in the future unless and until dividends are paid to Omagine, Inc. by Omagine LLC. Any return on your investment may therefore be limited to the value of our Common Stock.
 
We have never paid cash dividends on our Common Stock and do not anticipate paying cash dividends in the foreseeable future. Up until this time the Company has utilized all cash reserves for the operation of its business and the Company plans to continue this policy for the foreseeable future. Any future payment of dividends on our Common Stock will depend on the payment of dividends to Omagine, Inc. by Omagine LLC and, as the Board of Directors may consider relevant, our earnings, financial condition and other business and economic factors at such time. If we do not pay cash dividends, our Common Stock may be less valuable because a return on your investment will only occur if the price of our Common Stock appreciates above the price you paid for it.
 
There are substantial risks associated with the SEDA with YA which could contribute to the decline of the price of our Common Stock and have a dilutive impact on our existing stockholders
 
In order to obtain needed capital, we entered into the SEDA with YA. The sale of our Common Shares pursuant to the SEDA will have a dilutive impact on our stockholders. We believe YA intends to promptly re-sell the shares that we sell to it under the SEDA. Such re-sales could cause the market price of our Common Stock to decline significantly. Any subsequent sales by us to YA under the SEDA may, to the extent of any such decline, require us to issue a greater number of shares of Common Stock to YA in exchange for each dollar of such subsequent sale.  Under these circumstances our existing stockholders would experience greater dilution. The sale of our Common Stock under the SEDA could encourage short sales by third parties which could contribute to the further decline of the price of our Common Stock.

Dividends and Dividend Policy
 
The holders of our Common Stock share proportionately, on a per share basis, in all dividends and other distributions declared by our Board of Directors. On January 12, 2012, our Board of Directors declared a dividend distribution of Rights and Warrants to our shareholders. Other than the foregoing non-cash dividend distribution, we have not declared any dividends on our Common Stock since inception and do not anticipate paying cash dividends in the foreseeable future. We plan to retain any future earnings for use in our business operations. Any future decisions as to payment of cash or non-cash dividends or distributions on our Common Stock will be at the discretion of the Board of Directors and will depend upon our earnings and financial position at such time and on such other factors as the Board of Directors may then deem relevant.

The following discussion highlights the Company's business activities during fiscal years 2013 and 2012.
 
Overview
 
As the development program for the Omagine Project becomes more detailed and as the planning and design processes progress, the estimates of construction and development costs have and will become proportionately more accurate. The Company presently expects, based on the current assumptions underlying Omagine LLC’s updated development program, that the development costs (including the costs for design, construction management, program management and construction) for the entire Omagine Project will be between $2.1 and $2.5 billion dollars. As noted below however, the costs of labor and materials as well as the selling prices and market absorption rates of new residential housing and commercial properties remain somewhat volatile and accurate forecasts for such future costs, selling prices or market absorption rates cannot be made at this time. The Company nevertheless presently expects, based on signing the DA in April 2014 and on current assumptions and market activity, that such residential selling prices during the Omagine Project’s planned multiple sales releases during 2015 and beyond will be at least equal to the prices that are presently budgeted by Omagine LLC.
 
Costs and selling prices in Oman and the surrounding region remain somewhat volatile and undue reliance on present forecasts should be avoided. Management cautions that future events rarely develop exactly as forecast and the best estimates routinely require adjustment. Management fully expects that its cost estimates for the Omagine Project will require adjustment – possibly significant adjustment – as future events unfold. Investors and shareholders are cautioned not to place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statement or forecast, which speaks only as of the date hereof.
 
Although the Oman economy was not as severely affected by the 2008/2009 worldwide financial crisis as nearby Dubai or other countries, it did experience negative effects, slowdowns and volatility in both residential and commercial selling prices and market absorption rates during the past several years. Raw material and labor prices initially dropped dramatically but have now recovered and stabilized. Both the economy and real estate sector of nearby Dubai is presently experiencing a very robust recovery. Dubai leads the way for the Gulf tourism market and this is likely to be the case for the foreseeable future, given its existing visitor market (over 10 million visitors in 2012), attractions, its impressive future capital development and marketing investment programs, and especially given its recent selection as the host for EXPO 2020 which is expected to attract over 25 million visitors. All of the foregoing will ensure that Dubai’s appeal is maintained. Omagine is conveniently located one hour from Dubai by air and is a natural and logical addition to a Dubai visit. Management expects Omagine to benefit from Dubai’s hosting of EXPO 2020 and similarly, from nearby Qatar’s hosting of the World Cup Games in 2022. Sale prices and rental rates for housing in other integrated tourism projects in the Muscat area of Oman are increasingly strengthening and the inventory of unsold housing in the secondary (re-sale) market has diminished recently which some market observers see as an important indicator of strong future demand. Significant new housing inventory, especially apartments, has come onto the local Muscat area market and the market absorption rates (number of market transactions) for such new residential housing continues to improve.
 
The Company plans to continue its focus on real estate development, entertainment and hospitality ventures and on developing, building, owning and operating tourism and residential real estate development projects, primarily in the MENA Region. The Company presently concentrates the majority of its efforts on the tourism and real estate development business of Omagine LLC in Oman.
 
Rights Offering and Warrant Distribution
 
In January 2012, the Board of Directors authorized the Company to conduct a Rights Offering and Warrant Distribution exclusively for the benefit of its stockholders pursuant to which the Company distributed at no charge to all holders of its Common Stock on February 24, 2012 (the “Record Date”), 3,181,837 non-transferable subscription Rights and 6,422,124 Warrants. Shareholders who owned Common Shares on the Record Date (the “Record Shareholders”) received one Right, one $5 Warrant, and one $10 Warrant for each four Common Shares held by them on the Record Date. Between February 24, 2012 and March 30, 2012 the Company conducted the Rights Offering (See: “Liquidity and Capital Resources – Rights Offering and Warrant Distribution”).
 
Critical Accounting Policies
 
Our financial statements attached hereto for the fiscal years 2013 and 2012 are development stage entity financial statements and have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for development stage entities and pursuant to the guidance contained in ASC 915 issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board. The financial statements have been audited by the Company's independent certified public accountants. The preparation of these financial statements 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 period. The policies discussed below are considered by management to be critical to an understanding of our financial statements because their application places the most significant demands on management's judgment, with financial reporting results relying on estimation about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. Specific risks for these critical accounting policies are described in the following paragraphs. For all of these policies, management cautions that future events rarely develop exactly as forecast, and the best estimates routinely require adjustment.
 
Revenue Recognition. The method of revenue recognition at Omagine LLC will be determined by management when and if it becomes likely that Omagine LLC will begin generating revenue.
Valuation Allowance for Deferred Tax Assets. The carrying value of deferred tax assets assumes that the Company will not be able to generate sufficient future taxable income to realize the deferred tax assets, based on management's estimates and assumptions.

Results of Operations :
 
Fiscal Year Ended December 31, 2013 Compared to Fiscal Year Ended December 31, 2012
 
The Company is a development stage entity and is not expected to generate revenue until after the occurrence of an event - the development of the Omagine Project - which, as of the date hereof, is not certain to occur. (See: "Business - The Omagine Project").
 
The Company did not generate any revenue or incur any cost of sales for the years ending 2013 and 2012. The Company is focusing all of its efforts on Omagine LLC's real estate development and entertainment business.
 
The Company is relying on Omagine LLC's future operations for the Company's future revenue generation.
 
Management is presently examining other possible sources of revenue for the Company which, subject to the Development Agreement being executed by Omagine LLC and the Government, may be added to the Company’s operations.
 
Total selling, marketing, general and administrative operating expenses (“SG&A Expenses”) were $2,630,555 in fiscal year 2013 compared to $2,789,975 in fiscal year 2012, a decrease of $159,420 (5.7%).
 
During our 2013 fiscal year the following SG&A Expenses decreased by a total of $304,835: Officers & Directors compensation ($190,781); Travel & other SG&A Expenses ($114,054); and such decreases were partially offset by increases totaling $145,415 in the following SG&A Expenses: Professional Fees ($54,110); Consulting Fees ($68,386); and Rent / Occupancy costs ($22,919).
 
During 2013 and 2012 the Company has utilized (i) awards of Stock Options to retain the services of personnel deemed critical to its ongoing operations (See: “Executive Compensation” and “Employment Agreements and Consulting Agreement”), and (ii) issuances of its Common Stock in lieu of cash payments in order to conserve its cash resources .
 
During the last two years the Company has frequently deferred making payments of salary to its executives, utilized (or extended) Stock Options to incentivize its employees and consultants and utilized its Common Stock in lieu of cash to pay various professional fees. The Company therefore incurred significant SG&A Expenses in both 2013 and 2012 that did not require the Company to expend cash to compensate such employees and consultants or to pay such professional fees. Such SG&A Expenses incurred by the Company in 2013 and 2012 totaled $1,931,728 and $2,186,653 respectively, and consisted of: (i) deferred salary amounts which were expensed (but not paid) and which were then accrued as salaries payable, (ii) Stock Option expense (including the calculated expense of extending the expiration date of certain Stock Options); (iii) Common Stock contributed to employee 401(k) Plans, and (iv) Common Stock utilized to pay vendors, as detailed below:
 
$206,250 in 2013 and $168,000 in 2012 of unpaid but accrued salaries payable to Company executives, and
$1,445,744 in 2013 and $1,761,076 in 2012 representing the fair value of Stock Option awards and/or the extension of the expiration date of certain Stock Options as calculated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model, and
$76,250 in 2013 and $76,250 in 2012 representing the value of the shares of Common Stock contributed to employees 401(k) plan accounts, and
$203,484 in 2013 and $181,327 in 2012 representing the value of the shares of Common Stock used by the Company to pay various consulting and professional fees.
The Company sustained a net loss of $2,640,590 during 2013 compared to a net loss of $2,789,976 during 2012. The $149,386 (5.4%) decrease in the Company's 2013 net loss compared to 2012 was principally attributable to the $159,420 decrease in SG&A Expenses in 2013 compared to 2012 as described above.
 
 
30

 
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
The Company incurred net losses of $2,640,590 and $2,789,976 respectively in fiscal years 2013 and 2012. In 2013 the Company had net negative cash flow of $42,404 resulting from the negative cash flows of $596,917 from the Company’s operating activities and $8,207 from the Company’s investing activities being partially offset by the positive cash flow of $562,720 from its financing activities. Financing activities during the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 consisted of sales by Omagine, Inc. of shares of its Common Stock for proceeds of $407,720 and the issuance of a note payable pursuant to the YA Loan, the net proceeds of which to the Company was $180,000.
 
The Company had $8,207 of capital expenditures in fiscal year 2013. Assuming Omagine LLC and the Government sign the Development Agreement for the Omagine Project in 2014 as expected, the Company anticipates that it will incur significant expenses related to capital expenditures, marketing, public relations and promotional activities in fiscal year 2014 and beyond.
 
At December 31, 2013, the Company had $29,998 in current assets, consisting of $19,723 of cash and $10,275 of prepaid expenses (representing prepaid expense for investor relations services which will be amortized in 2014).
 
The Company's current liabilities at December 31, 2013 totaled $1,602,903 consisting of $347,935 of convertible notes payable and accrued interest, $163,126 of the YA Loan note payable and accrued interest, $364,230 of accounts payable and accrued expenses and $727,612 of accrued Officers’ payroll.
 
At December 31, 2013, the Company had a working capital deficit of $1,572,905 compared to a working capital deficit of $867,822 at December 31, 2012. Fifty-eight percent (58%) of the $1,602,903 of current liabilities at December 31, 2013 ($933,837) is due and owing to officers and/or directors.
 
The $705,083 increase in the Company's working capital deficit at December 31, 2013 compared to December 31, 2012 is attributable to the decreases during 2013 in: cash ($42,404) and pre-paid expenses ($153,864) plus the increases during 2013 in: convertible notes payable and accrued interest ($27,500); the YA Note payable and accrued interest ($163,126); accounts payable and accrued expenses ($111,939); and accrued officers payroll ($206,250).
 
As indicated in the report of the independent registered public accounting firm, the consolidated financial statements referred to above have been prepared for the Company as a development stage entity and assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company's present financial situation raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to this matter are also described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets or the amounts or classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the Company cannot continue in existence. The continued existence of the Company is dependent upon its ability to execute its business plan and attain profitable operations or obtain additional financing.
 
Omagine LLC
 
Omagine LLC presently has limited resources.
 
Omagine, Inc. and JOL made the 20,000 Omani Rial ($52,000) OMAG Initial Equity Investment into Omagine LLC in 2009.
 
Omagine, Inc. and the New Shareholders invested a further 130,000 Omani Rials ($338,000) into Omagine LLC pursuant to the Shareholder Agreement (see Exhibit 10.3). Omagine LLC is presently capitalized at 150,000 Omani Rials ($390,000).
 
Omagine, Inc. will make the 210,000 Omani Rial ($546,000) OMAG Final Investment into Omagine LLC after the DA is signed and Omagine LLC will then be capitalized at 360,000 Omani Rials ($936,000).
 
Expenses incurred during the many extended delays in signing the DA have depleted Omagine LLC’s resources and as of the date hereof Omagine, Inc. has advanced 41,000 Omani Rials ($106,600) of the OMAG Final Equity Investment to Omagine LLC in order to maintain Omagine LLC’s liquidity.
 
 
31

 
 
The New Shareholders will make an additional 26,628,125 Omani Rial ($69,233,125) investment (the “Deferred Cash Investment”) into Omagine LLC only after the Financing Agreement Date occurs and Omagine LLC will then be capitalized at 26,988,125 Omani Rials ($70,169,125).
 
The capital of Omagine LLC will likely be increased further at a later date if and when the non-cash valuation of the PIK is recorded as a capital investment into Omagine LLC.
 
The value of the non-cash “payment-in-kind” investment by RCA will be added to Omagine LLC’s capital after such value is determined subsequent to the signing of the Development Agreement.
 
The continuation of Omagine LLC’s business and its efforts to sign the Development Agreement have to a large extent been financed to date by Omagine, Inc. and it is planned that such activities will, to a large extent, continue to be financed by Omagine, Inc. until the DA is signed. The Company is relying for revenue growth upon the future business of its 60% owned subsidiary Omagine LLC.
 
Omagine Inc.
 
The continuation of the Company’s operations is dependent upon Omagine, Inc.’s ability to secure financing for its and Omagine LLC’s operations until such time as the DA is signed, the Financing Agreement Date occurs and Omagine LLC begins paying Omagine, Inc. the $10 million Success Fee and the approximately $9 million of Pre-Development Expenses.
 
In order to provide financing for its recent activities, the Company has relied on the proceeds from sales of its Common Stock pursuant to (i) private placement sales, (ii) the Standby Equity Distribution Agreement discussed below, and (iii) the 2012 Rights Offering discussed below. In addition the Company has entered into a loan agreement dated as of July 26, 2013 (the “YA Loan Agreement”) as discussed below. If the DA is signed, management is hopeful that the Warrants will provide a future source of additional financing.
 
Investors and Shareholders should be aware that as a Development Stage Entity we have had no revenue for the past several years and do not expect to generate any revenue until after the DA is signed and the Financing Agreement Date is achieved.
 
The significant expenses incurred during the many extended delays by the Government of Oman in signing the DA have strained and continue to strain the Company’s resources. Because the Company financed such expenses and its continuing operations during such delays via sales of new shares of its Common Stock, these delays by the Government of Oman have resulted in a material increase in the number of issued and outstanding shares of the Company’s Common Stock. This point is illustrated by the fact that between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2013 the Company has issued and sold 5,131,790 shares of its Common Stock to investors, vendors, officers and consultants. All or most of such shares would likely not have been issued and sold had the DA been signed in a timely manner as promised frequently by the MOT.
 
Either the failure of Omagine LLC to sign the Development Agreement with the Government of Oman or, if signed, the failure thereafter of the Financing Agreement Date to occur, will have a materially significant effect on the Company’s ability to continue operations. After the DA is signed, Omagine, Inc. may, if it has the necessary financial resources available to it, make a secured loan to Omagine LLC in order to trigger the first Financing Agreement Date.
 
Rights Offering and Warrant Distribution
 
The Company conducted a “Rights Offering and Warrant Distribution” between February 24, 2012 and March 30, 2012 for the sole benefit of the Record Shareholders pursuant to which the Company distributed a total of 3,181,837 “Rights” and 6,422,124 Common Stock purchase warrants (“Warrants”) to Record Shareholders.
 
A total of 1,014,032 Common Shares were subscribed for in the Rights Offering at a subscription price of $1.25 per Common Share. Total proceeds to the Company from the Rights Offering was $1,267,540 of which $731,639 was paid in cash and $535,901 was paid via the satisfaction of debt owed by the Company to Record Shareholders exercising such Rights. Of the 1,014,032 new shares issued pursuant to the Rights Offering, 585,311 of such shares were issued in exchange for the aforementioned $731,639 in cash and 428,721 of such shares were issued in exchange for the aforementioned satisfaction of $535,901 of Company debt constituting promissory notes for loans to the Company and accrued but unpaid salaries and expenses. Of the $535,901 of Company debt which was satisfied in the Rights Offering, $506,750 of such debt represented unpaid salaries, expenses and loans to the Company which were due and owing by the Company to officers and directors of the Company.
 
 
32

 
 
Pursuant to the terms of the Rights Offering and Warrant Distribution the Company withheld the issuance of exercisable Rights or Warrants to its Record Shareholders who were residents of California (the “California Shareholders”) because, as of the Record Date, the registration and/or qualification in California of the Rights, Warrants and the Common Stock underlying the Rights and Warrants had not yet been approved by the California Department of Corporations (the “California Approval”). The Rights Offering expired on March 30, 2012 and the California Approval was received by the Company on February 13, 2013, after which Warrants were distributed to the California Shareholders. Of the total of 6,422,124 Warrants distributed, 3,211,062 are $5 Warrants and 3,211,062 are $10 Warrants. The Warrants expire on December 31, 2014 unless, upon a 30 day prior notice from the Company to the Warrant Holders, they are redeemed earlier by the Company.
 
The Rights, Warrants and Common Shares underlying the Rights and Warrants were registered in a registration statement filed by the Company on Form S-1 (Commission File No. 333-179040), which was declared effective by the SEC on February 13, 2012. On August 13, 2013, the Company filed a Post-Effective Amendment on Form S-1 to a previously filed registration statement (Commission File No. 333-183852) to update such registration statement to include all 6,422,124 issued and outstanding Warrants and the 6,422,124 Common Shares underlying such Warrants (the “Updated Registration”). The SEC declared the Updated Registration to be effective as of August 26, 2013 and it remains effective as of the date hereof.
 
Management is hopeful that, when and if the Omagine Development Agreement is signed, that all or many of the 6,422,124 outstanding Warrants will thereafter become “in the money” and will be exercised. Management is hopeful that the Warrants will provide a future source of additional financing for the Company. Such an exercise of Warrants would provide the significant amount of capital necessary to fund (i) the OMAG Final Equity Investment into Omagine LLC, and should it be desirable at the time, (ii) a secured loan to Omagine LLC which would in turn trigger the first Financing Agreement Date. There can be no assurance given that the Company will be able to successfully utilize the Warrants to secure the significant amount of financing necessary for it to execute its business plan as presently conceived.
 
Standby Equity Distribution Agreements
 
On May 4, 2011, Omagine, Inc. and an investment fund, YA Global Master SPV Ltd. (“YA”), entered into a two year Stand-By Equity Distribution Agreement which was amended on June 21, 2011 (the “SEDA”). Omagine, Inc. issued 244,216 restricted shares of Common Stock to YA in satisfaction of $300,000 of commitment fees due to YA pursuant to the SEDA. From April 24, 2012 to May 17, 2012, the Company was in breach of one of the covenants it made in the SEDA but that breach was waived by YA and the breach was cured on May 17, 2012 (See: Exhibit 10.11 hereto). The SEDA was originally scheduled to expire on September 1, 2013 but, as of July 26, 2013, it was amended by the parties without any further commitment fee to extend it for one year. The SEDA now expires on September 1, 2014.
 
Pursuant to the terms of the SEDA, Omagine, Inc. may in its sole discretion, and upon giving written notice to YA (an “Advance Notice”), periodically sell shares of its Common Stock to YA (“Shares”) at a per Share price (“Purchase Price”) equal to 95% of the lowest daily volume weighted average price for a share of Common Stock as quoted by Bloomberg, L.P. during the five (5) consecutive Trading Days (as such term is defined in the SEDA) immediately subsequent to the date of the relevant Advance Notice (the “Pricing Period”). Omagine, Inc. is not obligated to sell any Shares to YA but may, over the term of the SEDA and in its sole discretion, sell to YA that number of Shares valued at the Purchase Price from time to time in effect that equals up to $10,000,000 in the aggregate. YA is obligated under the SEDA to purchase such Shares from Omagine, Inc. subject to certain conditions including (i) Omagine, Inc. filing a registration statement with the SEC to register the resale by YA of the Shares sold to YA under the SEDA (“Registration Statement”), (ii) the SEC declaring such Registration Statement effective, (iii) periodic sales of Shares to YA must be separated by a time period of at least five Trading Days, and (iv) the dollar value of any individual periodic sale of Shares designated by Omagine, Inc. in any Advance Notice may not exceed the greater of (a) two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000), or (b) the average of the “Daily Value Traded” for each of the five (5) Trading Days immediately preceding the date of the relevant Advance Notice where Daily Value Traded is the product obtained by multiplying the number representing the daily trading volume of shares of the Common Stock for such Trading Day by the closing bid price for a share of Common Stock on such Trading Day.
 
The Registration Statement filed by the Company was declared effective by the SEC as of August 24, 2011 (Commission File No. 333-175168) and its effective status expired on May 25, 2012. The Company filed an amendment to that Registration Statement with the SEC to continue to make sales of Shares to YA available to it pursuant to the SEDA and on April 25, 2013 the SEC declared such Registration Statement to be effective. On August 8, 2013, the Company filed with the SEC a post-effective amendment to such registration statement updating it with respect to the YA Loan Agreement and the extension to September 1, 2014 of the SEDA’s expiration date. Such post-effective amendment was declared effective by the SEC on August 15, 2013.
 
Between 2009 and 2011, the Company had a prior Stand-By Equity Distribution Agreement with an affiliate of YA (the “First SEDA”). The Company has over the past many years relied on the proceeds from sales of Omagine, Inc.'s equity securities made in private placements, the Rights Offering and pursuant to the SEDA and the First SEDA to generate the necessary cash needed to sustain its ongoing operations.

Management believes that it has been judicious and conservative in its use to date of the SEDA and the First SEDA, but nonetheless our periodic sales of Common Stock to YA and to its affiliate pursuant to the SEDA and the First SEDA have been dilutive to all shareholders and the subsequent resales of such Common Stock by YA into the public market have from time to time inflicted downward pressure on our stock price.
 
Sales of Common Shares to YA in 2013 pursuant to the SEDA totaled 163,094 Common Shares for aggregate proceeds to the Company of $205,000 and in 2012 such sales totaled 68,480 Common Shares for aggregate proceeds to the Company of $90,000. Sales of Common Shares to YA in 2014 to date pursuant to the SEDA total 186,671 Common Shares for aggregate proceeds to the Company of $260,000. The Company intends to continue to utilize the SEDA to fund its ongoing operations, as and if necessary. There can be no assurance given that the Company will be able to successfully utilize the SEDA to secure the significant amount of financing necessary for it to execute its business plan as presently conceived.
 
The YA Loan Agreement
 
The Company and YA, the investment fund which is a party to the SEDA with the Company, entered into a loan agreement dated July 26, 2013 (the “YA Loan Agreement”). Pursuant to the YA Loan Agreement, Omagine, Inc. borrowed two hundred thousand dollars ($200,000) from YA (the “YA Loan”) for a term of one year at an annual interest rate of 10%. The YA Loan Agreement calls for a 10% monitoring and management fee equal to $20,000 to be escrowed and paid to Yorkville Advisors thereby making the net proceeds from the YA Loan to the Company equal to $180,000. Such $180,000 of proceeds was received by the Company on September 3, 2013. The YA Loan Agreement also extended the expiration date of the SEDA to September 1, 2014. The foregoing summary of the terms of the YA Loan does not purport to be complete and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the YA Loan Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit 10.12.
 
Although it is not a condition of the YA Loan Agreement, the Company anticipates that, absent a DA signing, the YA Loan will be repaid from proceeds of sales of Common Stock made pursuant to the SEDA. Depending on future circumstances and events, and in particular on further delays in signing the DA, the same dilution and downward pressure on our stock price mentioned above could occur as a result of the use of the SEDA to service the YA Loan. It is management’s opinion however that if and after the DA is signed, such dilution and downward pressure on our stock price will be substantially alleviated with respect to sales of Common Shares made pursuant to the SEDA. Management’s original intent with respect to the SEDA was to use it only after the DA was signed. The continued delays by the Omani Government in signing the DA however have necessitated that we utilize the SEDA (and now the YA Loan) to finance our current operations.
 
Management believes that the various financing mechanisms the Company has employed to date have been judiciously utilized, but the longer the Government of Oman delays the DA signing, the longer the Company’s human and financial resources will be strained, and the greater will be the amount of shareholder dilution and downward pressure on our stock price from the utilization of these various financing mechanisms.
 
Management is hopeful that, when and if the Omagine Development Agreement is signed, that the 6,422,124 Warrants distributed pursuant to its recent Rights Offering and Warrant Distribution will thereafter become “in the money” and will be exercised. Such an exercise of Warrants would provide the significant amount of capital necessary to fund, should that be desirable at the time, (i) a secured loan to Omagine LLC which would in turn trigger the first Financing Agreement Date, and (ii)  the OMAG Final Equity Investment into Omagine LLC. There can be no assurance given that the Company will be able to successfully utilize the Warrants or the SEDA to secure the significant amount of financing necessary for it to execute its business plan as presently conceived. The Company has relied on the net proceeds from sales of Omagine, Inc.'s equity securities made in private placements, the 2012 Rights Offering and pursuant to the SEDA and the First SEDA to fund its operations during the past several years.
 
Capital Expenditures and Construction Financing
 
The Company incurred $8,207 of capital expenditures in fiscal year 2013. In the periods after the DA is signed between the Government and Omagine LLC, we expect that (i) the Company will incur significant expenses related to capital expenditures, and (ii) Omagine LLC will incur substantial debt associated with the Construction Financing for the Omagine Project. We anticipate that such capital expenditures and Construction Financing will be financed through a combination of bank financing and possibly an additional sale or sales of Omagine LLC’s equity (See: “Business - Financial Advisor”). Omagine LLC's Construction Financing requirements are expected to be reduced by its ability to pre-sell residential and commercial units to third parties and receive deposits and progress payments during the construction of such units. Recent trends in the Omani market subsequent to the recent financial crises mentioned above however have indicated a reduced presence of speculative buyers and a reduced consumer appetite for pre-sales of residential units as many buyers are now demanding a finished unit before entering into sales contracts with developers.
 
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
We have not entered into and have no present intention of entering into any off-balance sheet financing arrangements. We have not formed and have no present intention of forming any special purpose entities.

Impact of Inflation
 
The level of inflation in the U.S. has been relatively low during the last several fiscal years and has not had a significant impact on the Company. While the level of inflation in Oman has also been relatively low during the last several fiscal years, the Oman economy has recently been experiencing volatility in its inflation rate (including in the prices of construction materials and labor) which volatility may have an impact on Omagine LLC's proposed future operations in Oman.

Management’s Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
The Company's disclosure controls and procedures are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in this report is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Such controls also include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
 
Under the supervision and with the participation of management, including the Company's chief executive and financial officer, the Company carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of such disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report (the “DCP Evaluation”).
 
On November 15, 2012, the Company concluded that it was a development stage entity (“DSE”) as that term is defined in ASC 915 as issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board. At March 31, June 30 and September 30 of 2012, the Company had concluded that it was not a DSE and during the fourth quarter of 2012, the Company instituted a more robust set of procedures in order to strengthen its disclosure controls and procedures and its internal control over financial reporting.
 
Based on the DCP Evaluation, the Company’s chief executive and financial officer has concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of December 31, 2013 and for the fiscal year then ended.

Management’s Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
 
Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the Company. Internal control over financial reporting is a process to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles and includes those policies and procedures that:
 
(1)
Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the Registrant;
(2)
Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that receipts and expenditures of the Registrant are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the Registrant; and
(3)
Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the Registrant's assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.
 
Management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2013 (the “ICFR Evaluation”). The ICFR Evaluation was conducted in accordance with the interpretative guidance issued by the SEC in Release No. 34-55929 and management has used a framework set forth in the report entitled “Internal Control -- Integrated Framework” published by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations (“COSO”) of the Treadway Commission to evaluate the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Prior to November 2012 the Company had adopted a web-based software solution in order to automate and streamline its compliance program. In light of our November 2012 conclusion that we are a DSE, the Company discontinued using this web-based system and reverted to its previous manual system during the fourth quarter of 2012.
 
Management’s Assessment
 
Based upon the ICFR Evaluation, management’s assessment and conclusion is that (i) the Company’s internal control over financial reporting was effective as of December 31, 2013, (ii) the Company’s internal control over financial reporting continues to be effective, and (iii) the material weakness in the operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures which caused us to make an incorrect conclusion regarding our status as a DSE during the first three quarters of 2012 has been ameliorated and there were no material weaknesses in either the design or operation of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report. The ICFR Evaluation did not identify the occurrence during the fourth fiscal quarter of 2013 of any changes in the Company's internal control over financial reporting that materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. These conclusions were communicated to the Audit Committee and to the Board of Directors.
 
Attestation Report of the Registered Public Accounting Firm
 
Omagine, Inc. is a non-accelerated filer and is required to comply with the internal control reporting and disclosure requirements of Sections 404 and 302 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the Company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to rules of the SEC that permanently exempt smaller reporting companies from such attestation requirement.
 
Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting
 
There were no changes made during the Company’s fourth fiscal quarter of 2013 that materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. In November 2012, concurrent with management’s conclusion that the Company is a DSE, the Company discontinued the use of its previous web-based system, returned to a manual system, and instituted a second level of internal review of our controls and procedures and internal control over financial reporting. The Company’s present manual system affords us a more detailed initial review which is now augmented by a more highly focused second level review by a different internal reviewer than the reviewer that does the initial review. Management believes that by designing in this redundancy a more robust result will be produced and Company management will be alerted in a timely manner to any internal control or disclosure issues, including financial reporting issues relevant to GAAP such as the November 2012 DSE issue described above. The Company is presently reviewing several specialized automated systems (while maintaining the second level of internal review) which are designed to assist us in our internal control over financial reporting and documenting and assessing the design of controls, tracking the testing of their effectiveness and locating and remedying any deficiencies in the internal controls over financial reporting. It’s managements present assessment that the implementation of such an automated and robust system is not presently required but that such a system may be implemented after the DA is signed with the Government of Oman and the business and transactional activities of our 60% owned subsidiary, Omagine LLC, begin to accelerate.

Mr. Drohan is also the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Omagine LLC and he serves as a director and the chairman of JOL. He was chairman of the board of directors, president and sole shareholder of Rif International Corp., a privately held company active in the construction and real estate development business and which had extensive overseas activities in the MENA Region between 1977 and 1986 and which was acquired by Omagine, Inc. in 1997. Mr. Drohan holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics and Political Science from Manhattan College in New York City. Mr. Drohan, has over 35 years of experience doing business across most of the MENA Region, has many long-standing business and personal relationships in the region and is familiar with the region’s cultural and business environment.

Mr. Kuczynski is a director and the secretary of JOL. Prior to joining the Company, Mr. Kuczynski was a sales executive with Hillenbrand Industries. Mr. Kuczynski holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Merrimack College in Massachusetts and he has over 30 years of diverse business experience in marketing, sales, public relations and administration.
 
Louis J. Lombardo has served as a non-employee independent director (“Independent Director”) of the Registrant since 2005. Mr. Lombardo retired after 35 years at American Express Company where he was Executive Vice President - Travel Related Services. In this capacity he led an organization of worldwide operating centers employing over 14,000 people and managed a $1.3 billion operating budget and a $600 million capital budget. Mr. Lombardo holds an MBA degree from New York University and his years of experience as a senior executive of American Express Company bring a unique perspective and added value to his role as an Independent Director on our Board of Directors. He lives in New York City where he owns and operates two privately held businesses and a consulting company.
 
Directors are elected to serve for one-year terms or until their successors are duly elected and qualified. The Board of Directors is authorized to fill vacancies on the Board of Directors by appointment for a term lasting until the Company’s next annual meeting of shareholders or until such appointed person’s successor has been duly elected and qualified. Directors who are Company employees receive no fees for acting as such. Independent Directors receive stock options and receive a minimal fee for attendance at board meetings and the Company's annual meeting and are entitled to reimbursement of reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by them in attending such meetings.
 
Kevin O'C. Green is an attorney and had served as an Independent Director of the Registrant from 2001 until January 2012. Due to the demands of his law practice and other business commitments, Mr. Green resigned as a director of Omagine, Inc. effective January 31, 2012. His resignation was not the result of any disagreements with the Company on any matters relating to the Company’s operations, policies or practices. Salvatore J. Bucchere, an accountant and businessman, had served as an Independent Director of the Registrant from 2001 until his sudden and unexpected death on April 9, 2012. The Board of Directors has undertaken a search to identify two persons who are qualified and willing to serve as Independent Directors to fill the vacancies resulting from Mr. Green’s resignation and Mr. Bucchere’s untimely passing. At December 31, 2012, the three member Board of Directors of Omagine, Inc. consisted of two employee directors: Frank J. Drohan and Charles P. Kuczynski and one Independent Director: Louis J. Lombardo.

Board Committees
 
The Company has an audit committee, a compensation committee, a nominating committee and a stock option committee each designated by the Board of Directors.
 
At December 31, 2013, the sole member of the Audit Committee was Mr. Drohan and the audit committee did not have an audit committee financial expert as a member as of December 31, 2013. At January 1, 2012 the members of the Audit Committee were Mr. Bucchere, Mr. Green (both of whom were Independent Directors) and Mr. Drohan. Until his unexpected death on April 9, 2012, Mr. Bucchere was the Chairman of the Audit Committee and was an audit committee financial expert.
 
At December 31, 2013, the sole member of the compensation committee and of the nominating committee was Mr. Lombardo who is an Independent Director. At January 1, 2012, the three Independent Directors, Mr. Lombardo, Mr. Bucchere and Mr. Green comprised the entire membership of the compensation committee and of the nominating committee.
 
At December 31, 2013, the sole member of the Stock Option Committee was Mr. Drohan. At January 1, 2012, the Stock Option Committee was chaired by Mr. Green, and both Mr. Bucchere and Mr. Drohan were committee members.
 
In view of the ongoing vacancies on its Board of Directors, the Company’s limited resources and the limited number of Company employees available to address currently pressing business requirements, the Board of Directors resolved on March 15, 2013 to temporarily suspend the activities of the audit committee, the compensation committee, the nominating committee and the stock option committee until the two new Independent Directors were appointed or elected, and to have responsibility for all such committee activities assumed by the full Board of Directors.
 
The Board of Directors does not expect to fill the two board vacancies for Independent Directors until after the Development Agreement for the Omagine Project is signed with the Government of Oman. The Board intends that one such vacancy will be filled with a person who will chair the audit committee and will be an audit committee financial expert. Upon the appointment or election of such two new Independent Directors, they will also both be appointed to the compensation committee and to the nominating committee.
 
Officers
 
Officers are appointed by the Board of Directors and serve at the discretion of the Board of Directors. Mr. Drohan and Mr. Kuczynski are both officers of the Company as described above. William Hanley has served as the Controller and Principal Accounting Officer of the Company since January 2008. Mr. Hanley served as the controller of Mittal Steel from 1986 to 2007 and as the Controller and Chief Financial Officer of Rif International Corp. from 1980 to 1986. From 1973 to 1980 he served as the controller at two Wall Street brokerage firms and from 1968 to 1972 as a senior accountant at Main LaFrentz & Company. Mr. Hanley holds a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Accounting from St. Francis College in New York.
 
Code of Ethics
 
The Company has adopted and its Board of Directors has approved a Code of Ethics and Business Conduct ("Code"). The Code applies to all directors, officers and employees of the Company. The Company believes that the policies and procedures contained in the Code are consistent with the requirements for a Code of Ethics as required by the SEC. A copy of the Code is attached hereto as Exhibit 14 and is available on the Company's website, www.omagine.com.
 
Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance
 
As of the date hereof, the Registrant’s officers and directors are in compliance with the requirement to file ownership reports as required by Section 16(a) of the Act. During 2013 the Registrant’s President, Vice President and Controller did not timely file Form 4 for shares gifted by each of them. All such forms have been filed as of the date hereof.

Compensation discussion and analysis
 
The Board of Directors has long recognized that the Named Executive Officers and the Company’s Independent Director (collectively, the “Company Executives”) have been substantially underpaid for years relative to their talents and to the efforts they expend on the Company’s behalf. The previously disclosed history of the long and frequent delays by the Government of Oman relative to the timely signing of the DA have caused hardship both for the Company and for the Company Executives. In order to conserve its cash resources, the Company has frequently suspended the already inadequate compensation arrangements it has with the Company Executives by not paying or partially paying such compensation and accruing the unpaid portions of such compensation on its books as compensation payable. The Company Executives have nevertheless exhibited remarkable resiliency, loyalty to the Company and dedication to their work and have labored on diligently, often with little or no compensation, in order to accomplish the Company’s single most important strategic objective - the signing the Development Agreement with the Government of Oman. In addition, the Company’s president, its vice-president and its Independent Director have each made loans to the Company during the past few years.
 
As soon as practicable after Omagine LLC signs the DA with the Government, the Company plans to institute a formal plan for performance based compensation for all its executives and senior staff, including the Company Executives. This intended compensation plan will be designed to align executive compensation with the achievement by the Company of its long-term goals and objectives. Until such time as such plan is implemented however, and given the Company’s current cash restraints, the Company has attempted to incentivize the Company Executives on an ad hoc basis.
 
Beginning in 2007 and continuing to date, the Company has frequently suspended and accrued salary payments due to its Company Executives who are officers of the Company. By way of example, from 2011 through 2013, the Company failed, to pay in accordance with its normal payroll procedures a total of $375,000 of salary due to its president & chief executive officer; a total of $105,417 of salary due to its vice-president & secretary; and a total of $153,333 of salary due to its controller & principal accounting officer. Consistent with the Company’s practice in periods prior to 2011, such unpaid salaries were accrued on the Company’s books as salaries payable and portions thereof were sometimes paid at later dates, as and when the Company’s financial circumstances permitted. Significantly, and in a further demonstration of their support of the Company, the Company Executives who are officers of the Company also, from time to time, exchanged portions of the accrued but unpaid salary due them for shares of Common Stock in the Company. None of such share purchases by such Company Executives were executed at preferential prices. In this regard:
 
In August 2011, the Company’s president exchanged $125,000 of accrued but unpaid salary due to him in order to exercise 100,000 Stock Options at $1.25 per share then held by him and in March 2012 he also exchanged an aggregate of $403,413 of unpaid salary and accrued principal and interest due to him from the Company under a promissory note, in order to exercise 322,730 Rights to purchase 322,730 shares of Common Stock at $1.25 per share in the Company’s 2012 Rights Offering, and
In August 2011, the Company’s vice-president exchanged $62,500 of accrued but unpaid salary due to him in order to exercise 50,000 Stock Options at $1.25 per share then held by him and in March 2012, he also exchanged an aggregate of $63,088 of unpaid salary and accrued principal and interest due to him from the Company under a promissory note, in order to exercise 50,470 Rights to purchase 50,470 shares of Common Stock at $1.25 per share in the Company’s 2012 Rights Offering, and
In July 2010, the Company’s controller exchanged $100,000 of accrued but unpaid salary due to him in order to purchase 82,305 shares of the Company’s Common Stock at $1.215 per share and in March 2012 he also exchanged $31,250 of accrued but unpaid salary due to him in order to exercise 25,000 Rights to purchase 25,000 shares of Common Stock at $1.25 per share in the Company’s 2012 Rights Offering.
The Company’s Independent Director has made loans to the Company totaling $150,000 which are represented by convertible promissory notes.
 
In an effort to retain the services of the Company Executives (and other Company consultants) which the Company deems critical to its ongoing operations, the Company has issued Stock Options to the Company Executives and to other Company consultants (See: “Equity Compensation Plan Information” and “Employment Agreements and Consulting Agreement” below in this Item 11). In the face of continued delays by the Government of Oman, in December 2013 the Company extended the expiration date of the January 2012 Stock Options held by the Company Executives.
 
The Company Executives recognize the extraordinary advance in the Company’s prospects expected to occur if the DA is signed with the Government and the implementation of the Omagine Project as presently conceived is undertaken by Omagine LLC. While they also recognize the extraordinary personal and professional risks, both financial and otherwise, they have undertaken in order to pursue this Company goal, the Company Executives are nevertheless greatly surprised at the excessive length of time taken by the Government’s decision making process and the attendant additional risk incurred by them as a result of those delays.
 
Should Omagine LLC ultimately fail to sign the DA and move forward with the development of the Omagine Project in Oman, (i) the past several years of excessive risk and under-compensation to the Company Executives will be misused years for them, (ii) the accrued but unpaid compensation payable to the Company Executives will likely be lost, (iii) the shares of the Company’s Common Stock purchased by the Company Executives will likely decline in value, and (iv) the Stock Options held by the Company Executives will likely expire worthless.
 
If, on the other hand, the efforts of the Company Executives on behalf of the Company are successful and the DA is ultimately signed by Omagine LLC and the Government, it is likely that the past years of excessive risk and under-compensation to the Company Executives will have been worthwhile, that the accrued but unpaid salary payable to the Company Executives will likely be paid to them, and that the Common Stock and Stock Options held by the Company Executives will likely become valuable.

In view of the inordinate delays by the Government to date, and the extraordinary efforts, risks and sacrifices undertaken on behalf of the Company by the Company Executives, the Board of Directors has determined that if, and only if, the DA is signed by Omagine LLC and the Government, the Company will then award a one-time cash bonus (a ”DA Success Bonus”) to each of the Company Executives in compensation for their aforesaid efforts, risks and sacrifices which resulted in the realization of the Company’s primary strategic objective of signing the DA. The amount of each such DA Success Bonus has not yet been determined by the Board of Directors but each such amount is expected to be substantial and commensurate with (a) the value added to the Company as a result of the contribution made by each such Company Executive to the Company’s success in achieving its primary strategic objective of signing the DA with the Government, and (b) the efforts expended by each such Company Executive in attaining that objective.
 
If Omagine LLC signs the DA with the Government, then in determining its compensation policies and decisions subsequent thereto, the Company shall seek a shareholder advisory vote on its executive compensation policy (including any proposed DA Success Bonus awards) as required by section 14A of the Exchange Act. The Company does not presently have written employment agreements with any of its executive officers (See: “Employment Agreements and Consulting Agreement” below in this Item 11).
 
Equity Compensation Plan Information
 
On March 6, 2014, the Board of Directors approved the adoption of the 2014 Plan pursuant to which the Company will reserve 3,000,000 shares of its authorized but unissued Common Stock for issuance thereunder. The Company intends to seek its shareholders’ ratification of the adoption by the Company of the 2014 Plan.
 
On December 30, 2009, shareholders authorized the Board of Directors to reserve 2,500,000 shares of its authorized but unissued Common Stock (the “Reserved Shares”) for issuance under the 2003 Plan. On October 14, 2011, the Company registered the Reserved Shares for resale by filing a registration statement with the SEC on Form S-8. On September 12, 2012, the Company filed a post-effective amendment to the registration statement to reflect stock options that had expired or were cancelled, issued or exercised under the 2003 Plan subsequent to October 13, 2011. The 2003 Plan expired on August 31, 2013 and all of the then outstanding Stock Options issued under the 2003 Plan remain valid until the earlier of their exercise date or expiration date.
 
The 2003 Plan was, and the 2014 Plan is, designed to attract, retain and motivate employees, directors, consultants and other professional advisors of the Company and its subsidiaries (collectively, the "Recipients") by giving such Recipients the opportunity to acquire stock ownership in Omagine, Inc. through the granting of Stock Options to purchase shares of the Company’s Common Stock.
 
On March 28, 2014 pursuant to the 2014 Plan and a resolution of the Board of Directors, Mr. Lombardo was granted 10,000 Stock Options exercisable at $1.80 per share which expire on March 27, 2019.

On January 15, 2013 pursuant to the 2003 Plan and a resolution of the Board of Directors, Mr. Lombardo was granted 2,000 Stock Options exercisable at $1.38 per share which expire on January 14, 2018.
 
On April 13, 2012 pursuant to the 2003 Plan and a resolution of the Board of Directors, Mr. Lombardo was granted 2,000 Stock Options exercisable at $1.70 which expire on April 18, 2017.

On January 2, 2012, pursuant to the 2003 Plan and a resolution of the Board of Directors, thirteen individuals who were either employees, directors or consultants to the Company at such time were granted an aggregate total of 1,994,000 January 2012 Options exercisable at $1.70. On January 31, 2012, 50,000 January 2012 Options previously issued to Mr. Green, an Independent Director, were cancelled in accordance with their terms upon Mr. Green’s resignation. On April 9, 2012, Mr. Bucchere, an Independent Director, died and, pursuant to the 2003 Plan, all 50,000 January 2012 Options previously granted to him immediately vested and the expiration date of Mr. Bucchere’s January 2012 Options and all other Stock Options then held by him was fixed at April 8, 2013. On April 13, 2012 pursuant to the 2003 Plan and a resolution of the Board of Directors, 21,000 January 2012 Options which were intended to be granted on January 2, 2012 but were not available under the 2003 Plan at such time, were granted to two individuals as follows: (i) a consultant to the Company was granted 10,000 January 2012 Options, and (ii) Mr. Frank Drohan, the Company’s president, was granted an additional 11,000 January 2012 Options. In view of the long delays experienced by the Company resulting from the Government’s delays in signing the DA and because of the Board of Directors’ determination that the continued services of the individuals holding January 2012 Options was required, the Board of Directors resolved on December 26, 2012, to extend the expiration date of all January 2012 Options (including the 50,000 January 2012 Options held by the estate of Mr. Bucchere) to December 31, 2013 and the Board of Directors resolved on December 18, 2013, to again extend the expiration date of all January 2012 Options (including the 50,000 January 2012 Options held by the estate of Mr. Bucchere) to December 31, 2014.
 
All January 2012 Options are exercisable at $1.70 per share, have a “cashless exercise” feature, are fully vested as of the date hereof, expire on December 31, 2014, and (except with respect to January 2012 Options held by the estate of Mr. Bucchere) require the holder thereof to be an employee of, or a consultant to, the Company at the time of exercise.
 
January 2012 Options may be exercised at any time prior to 5 P.M. Eastern Time in the United States on December 31, 2014 as follows, by either: (1) paying the $1.70 exercise price in cash to the Company, or (2) electing to pay the $1.70 exercise price via the cashless exercise feature of the January 2012 Options:
 
1)
January 2012 Options may be exercised in whole or in part by the holder thereof by delivery of a written notice to the Company (the “Exercise Notice”), of such holder’s election to exercise such January 2012 Options, which Exercise Notice shall (a) specify the number of shares of Common Stock (“Option Shares”) to be purchased, (b) be accompanied by payment to the Company of an amount equal to $1.70 per Option Share multiplied by the number of Option Shares for which the January 2012 Options are being exercised (the “Aggregate Option Exercise Price”) in cash or wire transfer of immediately available funds, and (c) include the surrender of the relevant certificate representing such January 2012 Options (or an indemnification undertaking with respect to such January 2012 Options in the case of the loss, theft or destruction of such certificate). Such documentation and payment shall be delivered by such holder to a common carrier for overnight delivery to the Company as soon as practicable following the date of such Exercise Notice, but in no event later than December 30, 2014 (“Cash Basis”) or
2)
by delivering an Exercise Notice and in lieu of making payment of the Aggregate Option Exercise Price in cash or wire transfer, elect instead to receive upon such exercise the “Net Number” of shares of Common Stock determined according to the following formula (the “Cashless Exercise”):

Net Number = (A x B) – (A x C)
B

For purposes of the foregoing formula:
 
 
A =
the total number of Option Shares with respect to which the relevant January 2012 Options are then being exercised.
 
B =
the closing bid price of the Common Stock on the date of exercise of the relevant January 2012 Options.
 
C =
the exercise price of one dollar and seventy cents ($1.70) in United States currency.

(See: “Results of Operations” and Note 7 – STOCK OPTIONS to the Company's audited financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013).
 
Employment Agreements
 
The Company presently has no employment agreements with any of its employees.
 
Pursuant to a prior employment agreement with the Company (the “Drohan Agreement”), Omagine, Inc. was obligated to employ its President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Frank J. Drohan, at an annual base salary of $125,000 plus an additional amount based on a combination of the Company’s net sales and earnings before taxes. The Drohan Agreement also provided for an option to purchase 100,000 shares of Common Stock at $1.25 per share (the “Drohan Options”) and payment by the Company of certain life and disability insurance premiums on Mr. Drohan's behalf. The Drohan Options were exercised by Mr. Drohan in August 2011. By mutual agreement between the Company and Mr. Drohan, the Drohan Agreement was modified to provide that the Company could from time to time suspend salary payments to Mr. Drohan and Mr. Drohan would continue to provide services to the Company pursuant to the Drohan Agreement and the Company would accrue Mr. Drohan’s unpaid salary. For the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company has continued to accrue salary payable to its President on the basis of an annual salary of $125,000. At December 31, 2013 and 2012, unpaid accrued officer’s compensation due to Mr. Drohan was $398,154 and $273,154 respectively. During the year ended December 31, 2012, an aggregate of $403,413 ($155,921 of accrued but unpaid officer’s compensation due to Mr. Drohan and $247,492 of principal and interest owed by the Company to Mr. Drohan pursuant to a promissory note) was offset and utilized by Mr. Drohan for the exercise of 322,730 Rights to purchase 322,730 shares of the Company’s Common Stock at $1.25 per share. The Company has agreed to pay any remaining unpaid and accrued salary to Mr. Drohan without interest when and if the Company has the financial resources to do so. On September 23, 2008 the Board of Directors granted 100,000 non-qualified Stock Options to Mr. Drohan which vested ratably over the five years after the grant date and which are exercisable at $2.60 per share. All 100,000 of such Stock Options are fully vested as of the date hereof. Expiration of all such Stock Options is ten years from the date of grant. The Board of Directors had determined in January 2012 to grant Mr. Drohan 750,000 January 2012 Options. Because a sufficient number of options were not available under the 2003 Plan at the time however, pursuant to a resolution of the Board of Directors, the Company granted 739,000 January 2012 Options to Mr. Drohan on January 2, 2012. On April 13, 2012 pursuant to a further resolution of the Board of Directors, the Company granted Mr. Drohan an additional 11,000 January 2012 Options. Mr. Drohan’s January 2012 Options are fully vested as of the date hereof and require him to be an employee of the Company at the time of the exercise of any January 2012 Options. All January 2012 Options are exercisable at $1.70 per share, have a cashless exercise feature and may be exercised in whole or in part at any time before their expiry date of December 31, 2014. All unexercised January 2012 Options will expire on December 31, 2014. The Board of Directors has determined that when and if the Development Agreement for the Omagine Project is signed by Omagine LLC and the Government, the Company will award a substantial DA Success Bonus to Mr. Drohan in an amount that has yet to be determined. If Omagine LLC signs the DA with the Government, then in determining its compensation policies and decisions subsequent thereto, the Company shall seek a shareholder advisory vote on its executive compensation policy (including any proposed DA Success Bonus awards) as required by section 14A of the Exchange Act. The Company presently plans to enter into a new employment agreement with Mr. Drohan at some time during 2014, although the terms of such employment agreement have not yet been determined.

Pursuant to a prior employment agreement with the Company (the “Kuczynski Agreement”), Omagine, Inc. was obligated to employ its Vice-President & Secretary, Mr. Charles P. Kuczynski, at an annual base salary of $75,000, plus an additional bonus based on a combination of the Company’s net sales and earnings before taxes. The Kuczynski Agreement provided for an option to purchase 100,000 shares of Common Stock at $1.25 per share (the “Kuczynski Options”). By mutual agreement between the Company and Mr. Kuczynski, the Kuczynski Agreement was ended but the Kuczynski Options were maintained in effect and the Kuczynski Options were thereafter exercised by Mr. Kuczynski. Mr. Kuczynski is presently employed by the Company at an annual salary of $100,000 and from 2009 through 2012, Omagine, Inc. has from time to time fully or partially suspended salary payments to Mr. Kuczynski and Mr. Kuczynski has continued to provide services to the Company and the Company has accrued Mr. Kuczynski’s unpaid salary which was not paid to him in a timely manner in accordance with the Company’s normal payroll practices. For the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, the Company partially paid and partially accrued officer’s compensation of $100,000 due in each such year to Mr. Kuczynski. At December 31, 2013 and 2012, unpaid accrued officer’s compensation due to Mr. Kuczynski was $163,575 and $145,658 respectively. During the year ended December 31, 2012, an aggregate of $63,088 ($11,591 of accrued but unpaid officer’s compensation due to Mr. Kuczynski and $51,497 of principal and interest owed by the Company to Mr. Kuczynski pursuant to a promissory note) was offset and utilized by Mr. Kuczynski for the exercise of 50,470 Rights to purchase 50,470 shares of the Company’s Common Stock at $1.25 per share. The Company has agreed to pay any remaining unpaid and accrued salary to Mr. Kuczynski without interest when and if the Company has the financial resources to do so. On September 23, 2008 the Board of Directors granted 50,000 non-qualified stock options to Mr. Kuczynski which vested ratably over the five years after the grant date and which are exercisable at $2.60 per share. All 50,000 of such Stock Options are fully vested as of the date hereof. Expiration of all such Stock Options is ten years from the date of grant. Pursuant to a resolution of the Board of Directors, the Company granted 250,000 January 2012 Options to Mr. Kuczynski. Mr. Kuczynski’s January 2012 Options are fully vested as of the date hereof and require him to be an employee of the Company at the time of the exercise of any January 2012 Options. All January 2012 Options are exercisable at $1.70 per share, have a cashless exercise feature and may be exercised in whole or in part at any time before their expiry date of December 31, 2014. All unexercised January 2012 Options will expire on December 31, 2014. The Board of Directors has determined that when and if the Development Agreement for the Omagine Project is signed by Omagine LLC and the Government, the Company will award a substantial DA Success Bonus to Mr. Kuczynski in an amount that has yet to be determined. If Omagine LLC signs the DA with the Government, then in determining its compensation policies and decisions subsequent thereto, the Company shall seek a shareholder advisory vote on its executive compensation policy (including any proposed DA Success Bonus awards) as required by section 14A of the Exchange Act. The Company presently plans to enter into a new employment agreement with Mr. Kuczynski at some time during 2014, although the terms of such employment agreement have not yet been determined.

Compensation Committee Interlocks and Insider Participation
 
Although the information required under this caption is not required for the Company since it is a smaller reporting company, the Registrant nevertheless is choosing to include the following information in order to provide clarity regarding its present circumstances, the structure and membership of its compensation committee, and its future plans regarding membership its compensation committee.
 
At January 1, 2012, the then three Independent Directors who were members of the Board of Directors, Mr. Lombardo, Mr. Bucchere and Mr. Green comprised the entire membership of the compensation committee. Mr. Green resigned on January 31, 2012 and Mr. Bucchere died on April 9, 2012. Mr. Green was a member of the compensation committee from January 1, 2012 until his resignation on January 31, 2012. Mr. Bucchere was a member of the compensation committee from January 1, 2012 until his sudden and unexpected death on April 9, 2012. Mr. Lombardo was a member of the compensation committee and its chairman during all of 2012 and 2013, and at December 31, 2013, Mr. Lombardo, who is an Independent Director, was the sole member of the compensation committee.
 
 
 
48

 
 
No person who was a member of the compensation committee during 2013 was an officer or employee of the Registrant or a former officer or employee of the Registrant. Other than the $150,000 loan to the Company made by Mr. Lombardo, no person who was a member of the compensation committee during 2013 is a party to any related party transaction with the Registrant (See: “Directors, Executive Officers and Corporate Governance – Board Committees”  and  “Certain Relationships and Related Transactions, and Director Independence”).
 
During the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013, no executive officer of the Registrant served as a:
 
i.
 
member of the compensation committee (or other board committee performing equivalent functions or, in the absence of any such committee, the entire board of directors) of another entity, one of whose executive officers served on the compensation committee or board of directors of the Registrant, or
 
ii.
 
director of another entity, one of whose executive officers served on the compensation committee of the Registrant, or
iii.
 
member of the compensation committee (or other board committee performing equivalent functions or, in the absence of any such committee, the entire board of directors) of another entity, one of whose executive officers served as a director of the Registrant.
 
In view of the ongoing vacancies on its Board of Directors, the Company’s limited resources, and the limited number of Company employees available to address currently pressing business requirements, the Board of Directors resolved on March 15, 2013 to temporarily suspend the activities of the compensation committee and to have responsibility for all such activities assumed by the full Board of Directors. (See: “Compensation discussion and analysis” in this Item 11 above).
 
The Board of Directors does not expect to fill the two board vacancies for Independent Directors until after the Development Agreement for the Omagine Project is signed with the Government of Oman. Upon the filling of the aforesaid Board of Directors vacancies, two additional Independent Directors will be appointed to the compensation committee.
 
Compensation Committee Report

Board leadership structure and role in risk oversight
 
Mr. Frank J. Drohan is the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Registrant and is also the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Company. Mr. Salvatore Bucchere was the lead Independent Director on the Board of Directors up until his sudden and unexpected death on April 9, 2012, In this capacity, he consulted frequently (at least bi-weekly) with Mr. Drohan (who is often located overseas in Oman) and with Mr. Kuczynski who is a non-independent director and the Vice-President of the Company. Mr. Bucchere, in turn, communicated frequently with the Company’s other two Independent Directors, Mr. Lombardo and Mr. Green (who resigned in January 2012) in order to keep them apprised of current Company issues, events and risks. Mr. Bucchere was an accountant and an audit committee financial expert. Mr. Green is a practicing attorney. Mr. Lombardo is a retired senior executive with extensive experience in risk management at a Fortune 500 company.
 
In view of the limited human and financial resources of the Company and its singular focus on signing the DA, the Company determined that this board structure was appropriate and effective in carrying out its oversight tasks relevant to the company’s activities and to the risks it faced. The Company greatly regrets the loss of the services of Mr. Green and Mr. Bucchere, both of whom were valued advisers. Given its present resource constraints however, and what it perceives as the almost completed process leading to a signed DA with the Government, the Company has determined to focus its limited amount of human and financial resources on getting the DA signed and to therefore postpone active recruitment of replacements for its two former Independent Directors until after the DA is signed.
 
Although he is not an Independent Director, Mr. Kuczynski, an employee, director and Vice-President of the Company, has assumed the internal communications role formerly carried out by Mr. Bucchere. The Board continues as in the past to exercise its oversight function, including its risk oversight, on both a formal and informal basis between and among its directors. Subsequent to signing the DA, the Board will recruit at least two new members as Independent Directors and will at that time review and revise its policies and procedures as deemed necessary to accommodate the expected rapid growth in the Company’s activities.

Director Independence
 
The Company complies with the standards of "independence" under the NASDAQ Marketplace Rules. Accordingly, a director will only qualify as an "independent director" if, in the opinion of our Board of Directors, that person does not have a material relationship with our company which would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director. A director who is, or at any time during the past three years, was employed by the Company or by any parent or subsidiary of the Company, shall not be considered independent. Accordingly Louis J. Lombardo meets the definition of an "independent director" under NASDAQ Marketplace Rule 5605(a)(2). At December 31, 2013 one of the Registrant’s three directors, Mr. Lombardo, is independent.

 
Audit Fees
 
The Company was billed by its independent registered public accounting firm $37,600 in 2012 and $42,750 in 2013 for all auditing and review services performed by such firm for the Company in connection with the Company's regulatory filings during such fiscal years.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders of Omagine, Inc.

I have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Omagine, Inc. and subsidiaries (the "Company") as of December 31, 2013 and 2012 and the related consolidated statements of operations, changes in stockholders' deficit, and cash flows for the years then ended and the cumulative period from October 11, 2005 (inception) to December 31, 2013. The Company is a development stage entity as that term is defined in ASC 915 as issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board. The presentation of the Company’s financial statements is in accordance with the guidance contained in ASC 915 for financial statements of development stage entities. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. My responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on my audits.

I conducted my audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that I plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. I believe that my audits provide a reasonable basis for my opinion.

In my opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Omagine, Inc. and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2013 and 2012 and the results of their operations and cash flows for the years then ended and the cumulative period from October 11, 2005 (inception) to December 31, 2013, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.

The accompanying consolidated financial statements referred to above 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 present financial situation raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management's plans in regard to this matter are also described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
