TN-K ENERGY GROUP INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 and three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012

NOTE 1 — ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION.

Organization

TN-K Energy Group Inc. is an independent energy company engaged in the acquisition and development of crude oil reserves and production in the Appalachian Basin and to conduct directly and indirectly through third parties, operations on the properties.  In these Notes, the terms “Company”, “TN-K”, “we”, “us”, “our” and terms of similar import refer to TN-K Energy Group Inc.

Basis of Presentation

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and the footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring accruals, considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included. Operating results for the three-month period ended March 31, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2013. The accompanying consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012 which was filed on April 19, 2013.

Going Concern

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern.  Going concern contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business over a reasonable length of time. The Company has incurred losses since inception and has negative cash flows from operations and a substantial portion of the debt is in default and has a stockholders’ deficit of $(1,457,234) as of March 31, 2013. The future of the Company is dependent upon its ability to obtain additional equity and/or debt financing and upon the continued development of commercially viable producing wells at levels which significantly increase the Company’s revenues and net income. Management cannot assure that the Company will be able to secure such financing or obtain financing on terms beneficial to the Company or that the Company will be able to significantly increase its revenues and net income. Failure to achieve these goals may result in the Company’s inability to continue as a going concern and the impairment of the recorded long-lived assets.

These financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classifications of recorded assets, or the amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the Company cannot continue in existence.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES.

Cash and Cash Equivalents For purposes of reporting cash flows, we consider cash equivalents to be all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less at the time of purchase. The Company typically has cash in banks in excess of federally insured amounts.

Use of Estimates - Our financial statements are prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Preparation in accordance with GAAP requires us to (1) adopt accounting policies within accounting rules set by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) and by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and (2) make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues, expenses and other disclosed amounts.  This Note describes our significant accounting policies.  Our management believes the major estimates and assumptions impacting our financial statements are the following:
 
estimates of proven (i.e., reasonably certain) oil and gas reserve quantities, which affect the calculations of amortization and impairment of capitalized costs of oil and gas properties;
   
estimates of the fair value of oil and gas properties we own, particularly properties that we have not yet explored, or fully explored, by drilling and completing wells;
   
estimates of the fair value of stock options at date of grant;
   
estimates of the fair value of the derivative liabilities;
   
estimates as to the future realization of deferred income tax assets; and
   
the assumption required by GAAP that proved reserves and generally proved reserve value for measuring capitalized cost impairment be based on the prices of oil and gas at the end of the reporting period.

NOTES TO CONDENSED UNAUDITED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 and three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued).

The estimated fair values of our unevaluated oil and gas properties affect the calculation of gain on the sale of material properties and affect our assessment as to whether portions of unevaluated capitalized costs are impaired, which also affects the calculation of recorded amortization and impairment expense with regards to our capitalized costs of oil and gas properties.

The fair value of stock options at the date of grant to employees and members of our Board of Directors is based on judgment as to expected future volatility of our common stock and expected future choices by option holders as to when options are exercised.

Actual results may differ from estimates and assumptions of future events.  Future production may vary materially from estimated oil and gas proved reserves.  Actual future prices may vary significantly from price assumptions used for determining proved reserves and for financial reporting.

Fair Value The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for cash, and accounts receivable approximate fair value because of the immediate or short-term maturity of these financial instruments. Predominately most of the payables are the results of operations and financings of our prior business which ceased operations in 2005, as a result of the undercapitalized nature of our Company and the age of these delinquent payables, we are unable to determine the fair value of these payables.

Accounts Receivable and Credit Policies We have certain trade receivables consisting of oil and gas sales obligations due under normal trade terms. Our management regularly reviews trade receivables and reduces the carrying amount by a valuation allowance that reflects management’s best estimate of the amount that may not be collectible.  At December 31, 2012 and 2011, management had determined no allowance for uncollectible receivables was necessary. At March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, we had accounts receivable and receivables from the production of oil sale of $22,513, of which $0  was accounts receivable-related party, and $24,895, of which $0 was accounts receivable-related party, respectively.

Asset Retirement Obligations When we incur an obligation for future asset retirement costs, we record as a liability and as a cost of the acquired asset the present value of the estimated future asset retirement obligation.  For example, when we drill a well, we record a liability and an asset cost for the present value of estimated costs we will incur at the end of the well’s life to plug the well, remove surface equipment and provide restoration of the well site’s surface.  Over time, accretion of the liability is recognized as an operating expense, and the capitalized cost is amortized over the expected useful life of the related asset.  Our asset retirement obligations (“ARO”) relate primarily to the plugging, dismantlement, removal, site reclamation and similar activities of our oil and gas properties. Due to the small amount of such monies related to the asset retirement obligations as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, this amount is included in accrued expenses on the balance sheet.

The following table reflects the change in ARO at:

Oil and Gas Properties We use the successful efforts method of accounting for oil and gas activities.  Under this method, subject to a limitation based on estimated value, all costs are capitalized directly associated with property acquisition, exploration and development.  Internal costs that are capitalized at March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, were nil as such costs have been limited to costs directly identifiable with acquisition, exploration and development activities for the Company’s account and exclude indirect costs and costs related to production or general corporate overhead.
 
The Company follows the successful efforts method of accounting for its oil and gas activities. Accordingly, costs associated with the acquisition, drilling and equipping of successful exploratory wells are capitalized. Geological and geophysical costs, delay and surface rentals and drilling costs of unsuccessful exploratory wells are charged to expense as incurred. Costs of drilling development wells are capitalized. Upon the sale or retirement of oil and gas properties, the cost and accumulated depreciation or depletion are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss is credited or charged to operations.

as of March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 and three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued).
 
Capitalized costs of oil and gas properties evaluated as having, or not having, proved reserves are amortized in the aggregate by country using the unit-of-production method based upon estimated proved oil and gas reserves.  The Company currently does not have any gas production, which is sold, but we have developed policies to be inclusive of such production, if and when the Company becomes capable of selling such gas. For amortization purposes, relative volumes of oil and gas production and reserves are converted at the energy equivalent conversion rate of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one barrel of crude oil. Amortizable costs include estimates of future development costs of proved undeveloped reserves.  The costs of properties not yet evaluated are not amortized until evaluation of the property.  We make such evaluations for a well and associated lease rights when it is determined whether or not the well has proved oil and gas reserves.  Other unevaluated properties are evaluated for impairment as of the end of each calendar quarter based upon various factors at the time, including drilling plans, drilling activity, management’s estimated fair values of lease rights by project, and remaining lives of leases.
 
Capitalized costs of oil properties (net of related deferred income taxes) may not exceed a ‘ceiling’ amount equal to the present value, discounted at 10% per annum, of the estimated future net cash flows from proved oil reserves plus the cost of unevaluated properties (adjusted for related income tax effects).  Should capitalized costs exceed this ceiling, the excess is charged to earnings as an impairment expense, net of its related reduction of the deferred income tax provision.  The present value of estimated future net cash flows is computed by applying period-end oil prices of oil to estimated future production of proved oil gas reserves as of period-end, less estimated future expenditures (at period-end rates) to be incurred in developing and producing the proved reserves and assuming continuation of economic conditions existing at period-end. SEC guidance allows the ceiling to be increased for subsequent events occurring reasonably before the filing date of the affected financial statements and indicative that capitalized costs were not impaired at period-end.  Such subsequent events are increased oil prices and the proving up of additional reserves on properties owned at period-end.  The present value of proved reserves’ future net cash flows excludes future cash outflows associated with settling asset retirement obligations that have been accrued on the balance sheet.

Equipment We record at cost any long-lived tangible assets that are not oil properties.  Depreciation is recorded using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the related assets of three to seven years.  Expenditures for replacements, renewals, and betterments are capitalized.  Maintenance and repairs are charged to operations as incurred.  Long-lived assets, other than oil and properties, are evaluated for impairment to determine if current circumstances and market conditions indicate the carrying amount may not be recoverable.  We have not recognized any impairment losses on non oil and gas long-lived assets.

Impairment The accounting guidance, Accounting for the Impairment and Disposal of Long-Lived Assets, requires that long-lived assets to be held and used be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.  Oil properties accounted for using the successful efforts method of accounting (which we use) are excluded from this requirement but continue to be subject to the successful efforts method’s impairment rules.

Revenue Recognition — We recognize oil revenues from our interests in producing wells when production is delivered to, and title has transferred to, the purchaser and to the extent the selling price is reasonably determinable.  We recognize the sale of the partial interests in our oil wells once the terms of such contract have been fulfilled.

Major Customers — During the three months ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, we had two customers, respectively accounting for 100% of oil sales.  Because there are other purchasers that are capable of and willing to purchase our oil and because we have the option to change purchasers on our properties if conditions so warrant, we believe that our oil production can be sold in the market in the event that it is not sold to our existing customers, but in some circumstances a change in customers may entail significant transition costs and/or shutting in or curtailing production for weeks or even months during the transition to a new customer.

Net Income (Loss) Per Share — Basic net income (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) attributable to common stockholders by the weighted number of common shares outstanding during the period.  Diluted net income (loss) per share reflects per share amounts that would have resulted if dilutive potential common stock had been converted to common stock.

Concentration of Credit Risk Financial instruments which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist of cash.  We maintain substantially all cash assets at one financial institution.  We periodically evaluate the credit worthiness of financial institutions, and maintain cash accounts only in large high quality financial institutions. We believe that credit risk associated with cash is remote.  The Company is exposed to credit risk in the event of nonpayment by counter parties, a significant portion of which are concentrated in energy related industries. The creditworthiness of customers and other counter parties is subject to continuing review.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued).

Share-Based Compensation We adopted the accounting guidance for, Share-Based Payments, on a modified prospective basis. The accounting guidance requires publicly-held companies to recognize in their statements of operations the grant-date fair value of stock options and other equity-based compensation to employees, consistent with the rules for options to non-employees.

Reclassification Certain amounts in the 2013 and 2012 consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the March 31, 2013 financial statement presentation.  Such reclassifications have had no effect on net income (loss).

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Costs associated with unevaluated properties are primarily lease acquisition costs. At December 31, 2012,  we drilled 12 dry holes and recorded an impairment expense of $21,739, associated with dry holes. Pending costs of $100,715 for wells-in-progress existed at December 31, 2012. During the three months ended March 31, 2013 and March 31, 2012, we recorded an impairment expense of $75 and $120,192; respectively, as a result of well rework efforts and further evaluation of some wells plugged due to insufficient production. There are no unevaluated costs relating to significant development activities. Reclassification of other unproved property costs to evaluated costs is largely dependent on (i) how quickly we drill on the unevaluated property, (ii) the results of such drilling, (iii) if third-parties pay drilling costs to earn a portion of our interest, and (iv) quarterly assessments of such costs for impairments.

The Company retained a 2.5% working and operating interests in all of the wells whereby the 27.5% working and operating interests were sold. As consideration for our working and operating interests, under the terms of the Contract For Sale of Oil & Gas Leasehold Estate we received:

•              a cash payment of $716,666.68 (including commissions of $316,667),
•              a 5% overriding royalty interest (ORI) of 100% interest for the entire JR and Pansy Clark checkerboard lease which is also referred to as the Clark Brothers lease,

Under the terms of the Agreement, we were responsible for a pro-rata share of the closing costs, estimated to be $12,000, and the payment of all personal property taxes related to oil produced by us for the current tax year up to the date of closing.

As a result of the aforementioned transaction of acquiring these new interests in operating wells, the Company obtained an appraisal of such additional oil well interests acquired. The fair value of the additional oil well interests acquired were $862,370 plus the cash consideration received of $400,000 aggregated to a sale of oil and gas lease revenue of $1,262,370, which has been recorded as revenues. The costs attributed to this transaction amounted to $415,538 of book value relinquished of oil and gas property value and $49,478 of recorded value of related equipment, which has been presented as a cost of oil and gas leases sold in the amount of $465,016.

Impairment of Oil Properties

We use the successful efforts-cost accounting method, which requires recognition of an impairment of oil and gas properties when the total capitalized costs (net of related deferred income taxes) exceed a “ceiling” as described in Note 3.

Amortization Rate

Amortization of oil property is calculated quarterly based on the quarter’s production in barrels of oil equivalent (“BOE”) times an amortization rate.  The amortization rate is an amortization base divided by the BOE sum of proved reserves at the end of the quarter and production during the quarter.  The amortization base consists of (i) the capitalized evaluated oil costs at the end of the quarter before recording any impairment at quarter’s end, plus (ii) estimated future development costs for the proved reserves, less (iii) accumulated amortization at the beginning of the quarter.

NOTE 4 – LOAN PAYABLE, CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE, CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE – RELATED PARTY.

In April 2007 we executed an agreement with Mr. Daniel (Allen) Page whereby we received $250,000 in funds to be advanced through a line of credit which was evidenced by a convertible promissory note.  The note bears interest at a rate of 7.5% per annum and had an original maturity date of April 23, 2008. The initial $250,000 advanced under the credit line is convertible at any time into shares of our common stock at a price per share equal to $0.35.  We pay interest only payments until the maturity date of the convertible note, unless it is converted or prepaid.  Upon maturity or the conversion of the initial $250,000 principal amount and interest due under the note, we also agreed to issue to Mr. Page a four year warrant to purchase shares of common stock with an exercise price of $0.35 per share in an amount equal to 20% of the total shares issued upon conversion of the note.  On September 27, 2007, Mr. Page amended the note to provide an additional $100,000 of working capital to us. Under the terms of the amendment, the additional $100,000 is convertible into shares of our common stock at a price per share equal to $0.18. As consideration for this increase of availability under the credit line, at such time as the note matures or he converts the additional $100,000 into common stock, we agreed to issue him a warrant to purchase shares of common stock equal to 20% of the total shares to be issued upon the conversion of that portion of the note with an exercise price of $0.18 per share.  On May 1, 2009 we entered into a second amendment of the note to provide for an additional $50,000 of working capital to us, bringing the total amount available under the credit line to $400,000. Under the terms of the amendment, the additional $50,000 is convertible into shares of our common stock at a price per share equal to $0.12. As consideration for this extension, upon maturity of the note or at such time as he converts the note we agreed to issue him a warrant to purchase shares of common stock equal to 20% of the total share amount issued upon conversion of the note, with an exercise price of $0.12 per share, solely as it relates to this additional $50,000.

On December 8, 2009 Mr. Page extended the due date of the note to June 30, 2010.  The warrants we will issue Mr. Page will expire four years from the date of issuance, which shall be deemed to be on the earlier of (i) the maturity date of the note; (ii) the date on which the funds are advanced in full and owing by us; or (iii) the date on which we elect to pay off the note in full during the term.  We agreed to register for resale the shares underlying the convertible note and warrants, but we have not filed the required registration statement. On June 29, 2010, Mr. Page extended the due date of the note to December 31, 2010. Effective December 13, 2010, the Company entered into a Fifth Amendment to the Convertible Line of Credit Note with Mr. Daniel (Allen) Page pursuant to which he extended the due date of all amounts due under the Convertible Line of Credit from December 31, 2011. The Convertible Line of Credit is now due on demand. In April 2012, the Company entered into a Security Agreement with Mr. Page pursuant to which it granted him a security interest in all of the Company’s assets as collateral for the amounts due under the Convertible Line of Credit.

At March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, we owed Mr. Daniel (Allen) Page $180,000 and $180,000, respectively of principal and approximately $3,784 and $455, respectively of accrued but unpaid interest under this credit line. Mr. Daniel (Allen) Page, a principal shareholder of our Company, is the father of Mr. Ken Page, currently our sole officer and a member of our Board of Directors. We have also entered into a number of joint ventures with Mr. Daniel (Allen) Page. See Note 6- Related Party Transactions.

NOTE 7 — COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES.

The Company may be subject to various possible contingencies, which are derived primarily from interpretations of federal and state laws and regulations affecting the oil and gas industry. Although management believes it has complied with the various laws and regulations, new rulings and interpretations may require the Company to make future adjustments.

The Company continually evaluates its leasehold interests, therefore certain leases may be abandoned by the Company in the normal course of business.

The Company has been involved in litigation from time to time as a result of the failure to make payments on certain of its past due debts. Overall management believes the net recorded value of its past due payables adequately cover the total financial exposure of the past due payables.

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

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operation for the First Quarter 2013 and the First Quarter 2012 should be read in conjunction with the unaudited financial statements and the notes to those statements that are included elsewhere in this report. Our discussion includes forward-looking statements based upon current expectations that involve risks and uncertainties, such as our plans, objectives, expectations and intentions. Actual results and the timing of events could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of a number of factors, including those set forth under the Item 1A. Risk Factors appearing in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2012 as previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. We use words such as “anticipate,” “estimate,” “plan,” “project,” “continuing,” “ongoing,” “expect,” “believe,” “intend,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “could,” and similar expressions to identify forward-looking statements.

Overview

We are an independent oil exploration and production company, engaged in acquiring oil leases and exploring and developing crude oil reserves and production in the Appalachian basin. We concentrate our operations in Kentucky and Tennessee primarily in the Murfreesboro, Knox and Wells Creek formations, although we also have assets located in the Granville, Stones River and Sunnybrook formations. All of these formations are primary known producing formations. Our growth strategy is to focus on our operational growth in our core area, to convert our unproved reserves to prove reserves and to continue our acreage acquisitions while maintaining balanced, prudent financial management. In the past three recent years, we have realized substantial benefits from the sale of concentrations of our reserves, although this is not a focus, we do evaluate from time to time potential sales of our reserves for strategic and capital reasons.
 
Our Operations

Our operations are divided between leases in which we have a participation interest/overriding royalty interest and leases in which we are the operator. Interests owned by participation leases means we have a working or royalty interest in a property that is operated or maintained by another interest owner under an agreement. Overriding royalty interest means we assisted in the negotiations between the buyers and sellers of lease sales which we retained a royalty interest, and are provided options for additional participation of future wells. For participation leases, we receive payments for our oil sales from the operator and we are billed by the operator for a percentage of joint expenses relative to the costs of drilling and transporting the oil from the wells to the sales point. Since 2010, we have entered into a number of participation leases and working interest leases with third parties in which Mr. Daniel (Allen) Page, a related party, is also a party.

For drilling operations on leases in which we are the operator, we hire third parties to provide contract drilling services to us on an as needed basis. We have been able to reduce or eliminate our financial exposure in the initial drilling in our projects by creating joint venture arrangements that provide for others to pay for all or a disproportionate share of the initial drilling costs in exchange for a working or royalty interest in the well. In April 2013, we sold 27.5% working and royalty interest to two individuals and/or entities in the Millard Willis Well #1 for $22,000 which those parties are responsible for 35% of all the costs associated with the well. We expect to continue to use these types of relationships to partially or completely fund initial drilling of future wells.

During 2013, we plan to continue to expand our acreage position in our core area, focusing on acreage we will operate. In addition to the challenges faced by small independent oil and gas companies, we continue to face a number of challenges in executing our business model which are particular to our company. Our revenues decreased 66% for the First Quarter 2013 from the First Quarter 2012, and our income from operations increased 55% from period to period. These decreases are attributed to both the lack of a revenue from finder’s fees in 2013 period and the natural depletion of wells and downtime. During 2012, we began focusing on modifying our business plan to reduce drilling and completion cost through negotiated sales and acquiring overriding royalty interest within previously operated leases and new leaseholds.

During the balance of 2013, we plan to continue to expand our acreage position in our core area, focusing on acreage we will operate as well as overriding royalty interest in new acres and participation in applicable drilling rights. At March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, our balance sheet includes approximately $3.45 million and $3.46 million of obligations, a substantial portion of which relates to the prior business of our company before those operations were discontinued in 2005. Other than the secured credit line due a related party, none of the remaining obligations represent secured debt, although a number of the creditors have obtained judgments against our company. We do not have the resources to satisfy these obligations. If one or more of these judgment creditors should seek to enforce the judgment, our ability to continue our operations as they are presently conducted is in jeopardy.

We also face the challenge of limited personnel and diversion of our management’s time and attention. In 2011 we hired a part-time accountant and in 2012 we hired a part-time office assistant, but as our company continues to grow, we need hire additional staff to handle the increasing needs of our company, including from an administrative standpoint, and we need to invest in internal systems to ensure that our financial statements are properly prepared.  Lastly, we need to raise additional capital to fund these necessary infrastructure increases and our continued expansion, as well as to provide adequate funds to satisfy our obligations. We have been relying on funding available to us under a secured line of credit extended by Mr. Daniel (Allen ) Page, a related party, which matured in December 2011 and is due on demand.  As described elsewhere herein, in April 2012 we granted Mr. Daniel (Allen ) Page a security interest in all of our assets as collateral for this obligation.  At March 31, 2013, $180,000 is outstanding under this facility which is the maximum amount available as the credit line matured in December 2011. The amount is convertible into shares of our common stock at various prices, but there are no assurances the holder will convert the obligation.

We do not have any external sources of liquidity.  Our working capital is not sufficient to fund our operations and pay our obligations, many of which are past due, and may impede our ability to further grow our company.  Although we need to raise additional working capital, we do not have any commitments for capital from third parties.  Given the small size of our company, the quotation of our stock in the over-the-counter market and the significant liabilities on our balance sheet, we expect to encounter significant obstacles in raising equity or debit capital. If we are unable to access capital as needed, our ability to grow our company is in jeopardy and absent a significant increase in our revenues we may be unable to continue as a going concern.

Going Concern

For the First Quarter of 2013, we reported a net loss of $83,935 and at March 31, 2013 we have an accumulated deficit of $16.0 million. The report of our independent registered public accounting firm on our financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2012 contains an explanatory paragraph regarding our ability to continue as a going concern based upon our operating losses and need to raise additional capital. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty. There are no assurances we will be successful in our efforts to increase our revenues and report profitable operations or to continue as a going concern, in which event investors would lose their entire investment in our company.

Results of Operations

Our revenues can include revenues from oil sales generated both from wells in which we are the operator as well as those in which we have a working interest, as well as from non-recurring well services and sales of interest in oil and gas leases to third parties and finder’s fees for the culmination of the sale of oil well interests between third parties. While oil sales revenues are constant from period to period, revenues from sales of oil and gas leases and finder’s fees are transaction based on one-time for the particular transaction. As such, we may not report revenues from those sources in all periods. Oil sales revenues decreased 29%  in the First Quarter 2013 compared to the First Quarter 2012 due to low production income as the weather conditions were unfavorable for pumping during the period, as well as a decline in the average sales price of oil. During the First Quarter 2013, the average sales price (including transfers) per unit of oil extracted from wells drilled by us was approximately $91 as compared to approximately $99 for the First Quarter 2012.

Our total operating expenses in First Quarter 2013 decreased approximately 56% from the First Quarter 2012 which is directly related to the new business plan to reduce drilling and completion cost through negotiated sales and acquiring overriding royalty interest within previously operated leases. Oil lease operating expenses, which includes, our portion of the cost of contract drillers, other expenses associated with the drilling operations and depletion expense, were 115% of revenues in First Quarter 2013 as compared to 126% in First Quarter 2012 which is attributable to our lower than usual amount of production and increased participation in drilling activities.

No oil and gas leases were sold in First Quarter 2013.

During First Quarter 2013, our sales, general and administrative expenses decreased approximately 18% from the comparable period in 2012. This decrease is primarily attributable to Mr. Ken Page’s forgiveness of accrued salary that is no longer accruing as of December 31, 2012. We anticipate our operating expenses will increase during the balance of 2013 which will be reflective of our increased operations. We are not able at this time, however, to quantify the amount of the expected increase.

During First Quarter 2013 and 2012, we recognized an impairment expense of $75 and $120,192; respectively, which is related to impairment of developed properties. However, given the nature of our operations it is likely we will recognize comparable expenses in future periods.

Our interest expense during First Quarter 2013 and 2012 was $3,729 and $5,346; respectively. The decreased is the result of the decreased amounts outstanding principal under the line of credit provided by a related party which provides funding for our operations.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Liquidity is the ability of a company to generate sufficient cash to satisfy its needs for cash.  At March 31, 2013, we had a working capital deficit of $3,170,329 as compared to a working capital deficit of $3,142,186 at December 31, 2012. Our current assets at March 31, 2013 include accounts receivable and receivables from the sale of a partial interest in oil wells of $22,513 compared to $24,895; respectively, which are due 30 days from invoicing.  Our current liabilities includes approximately $3.46 million of accounts payable and accrued expenses, as of March 31, 2013, compared to $3.47 million of accounts payable and accrued expenses. Included in our accrued expenses, as of March 31, 2012 is approximately $41,000 of consulting expenses due a related party, and approximately $154,000 of accrued taxes.  In addition, at March 31, 2013 we owe a related party $180,000 of principal and $3,729 of accrued interest under a secured line of credit described below.

Net cash used by operating activities for the First Quarter 2013 was ($37,726) as compared to the net cash provided in the First Quarter of 2012 was $57,068.  During the First Quarter 2012, cash was provided by our net income and increases in our accounts payable offset by increased in accounts receivable. Net cash used in investing activities in the First Quarter 2013 reflects the purchase of oil and gas leases and fixed assets, as compared to net cash used in investment activities in First Quarter 2012 reflects the purchase of oil and gas leases and fixed assets.  There were no net cash used in financing activities in the First Quarter 2013 or the First Quarter of 2012.

Secured line of credit with Mr. Daniel (Allen) Page.

In April 2007, we executed an agreement with Mr. Daniel (Allen) Page whereby we received $250,000 in funds to be advanced through a line of credit which was evidenced by a convertible promissory note.  The note bears interest at a rate of 7.5% per annum and had an original maturity date of April 23, 2008.  The initial $250,000 advanced under the credit line is convertible at any time into shares of our common stock at a price per share equal to $0.35.  We pay interest only payments until the maturity date of the convertible note, unless it is converted or prepaid.  Upon maturity or the conversion of the initial $250,000 principal amount and interest due under the note, we also agreed to issue to Mr. Daniel (Allen) Page a four year warrant to purchase shares of common stock with an exercise price of $0.35 per share in an amount equal to 20% of the total shares issued upon conversion of the note.

On September 27, 2007, Mr. Daniel (Allen) Page amended the note to provide an additional $100,000 of working capital to us. Under the terms of the amendment, the additional $100,000 is convertible into shares of our common stock at a price per share equal to $0.18. As consideration for this increase of availability under the credit line, at such time as the note matures or he converts the additional $100,000 into common stock, we agreed to issue him a warrant to purchase shares of common stock equal to 20% of the total shares to be issued upon the conversion of that portion of the note with an exercise price of $0.18 per share.

On May 1, 2009, we entered into a second amendment of the note to provide for an additional $50,000 of working capital to us, bringing the total amount available under the credit line to $400,000, and to extend the maturity date of the note to December 31, 2009. Under the terms of the amendment, the additional $50,000 is convertible into shares of our common stock at a price per share equal to $0.12. As consideration for this extension, upon maturity of the note or at such time as he converts the note we agreed to issue him a warrant to purchase shares of common stock equal to 20% of the total share amount issued upon conversion of the note, with an exercise price of $0.12 per share, solely as it relates to this additional $50,000.

On December 8, 2009, Mr. Daniel (Allen) Page extended the due date of the note to June 30, 2010.  The warrants we will issue Mr. Page will expire four years from the date of issuance, which shall be deemed to be on the earlier of (i) the maturity date of the note; (ii) the date on which the funds are advanced in full and owing by us; or (iii) the date on which we elect to pay off the note in full during the term.  We agreed to register for resale the shares underlying the convertible note and warrants, but we have not filed the required registration statement.  On June 29, 2010, Mr. Daniel (Allen) Page extended the due date of the note to December 31, 2010.

Effective December 13, 2010, we entered into a Fifth Amendment to the Convertible Line of Credit Note with Mr. Daniel (Allen) Page pursuant to which he extended the due date of all amounts due under the Convertible Line of Credit to December 31, 2011. The Convertible Line of Credit is now due on demand.  In April 2012 we entered into a Security Agreement with Mr. Daniel (Allen) Page to provide collateral for the repayment of this obligation.  The Security Agreement provides that if there is an “event of default” under the agreement, the lender is entitled to take possession of our assets. Events of default include, among other items, (i) a failure to pay the obligations when due, (ii) a judgment in excess of $10,000, (iii) appointment of a receiver or an event of bankruptcy, or (iii) a breach by us of any covenant of the Security Agreement.  Under the terms of the Security Agreement, we also agreed not to take certain actions, including:

 
not incur additional indebtedness, other than trade payables and certain permitted liens,
 
declare or pay any dividends on our securities,
 
prepay any indebtedness,
 
make any advances or loans to any person,
 
assume, guaranty or otherwise become liable for the debt of any other person,
 
enter into any merger, consolidation or other reorganization or acquire all or any assets of another business,
 
form a subsidiary or enter into any partnership or joint venture,
 
materially change the nature of our business,
 
enter into any transaction with an affiliate except in the ordinary course on arms-length terms or
 
bill any receivable under any other name than our corporate name.

We have entered into a number of extension agreements with Mr. Page and the line of credit is presently due on December 31, 2013.  The warrants we will issue Mr. Page will expire four years from the date of issuance, which shall be deemed to be on the earlier of (i) the maturity date of the note; (ii) the date on which the funds are advanced in full and owing by us; or (iii) the date on which we elect to pay off the note in full during the term.  We agreed to register for resale the shares underlying the convertible note and warrants for resale, but we have not filed the required registration statement. At March 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, we owed Mr. Page $180,000 and $180,000; respectively, of principal and approximately $3,729 and $0, respectively of accrued but unpaid interest under this credit line, net of repayments.


Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Item 3.                                Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

Not applicable for a smaller reporting company.

Item 4.                                Controls and Procedures.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures.  We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures” as such term is defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, our management recognized that disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of disclosure controls and procedures are met.  Additionally, in designing disclosure controls and procedures, our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible disclosure controls and procedures.  The design of any disclosure controls and procedures also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.  Based on his evaluation as of the end of the period covered by this report, our Chief Executive Officer who also serves as our principal financial and accounting officer has concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective such that the information relating to our company, required to be disclosed in our Securities and Exchange Commission reports (i) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms and (ii) is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure as a result of continuing material weaknesses.

The material weakness identified for the period ended December 31, 2012 were related to insufficient personnel and accounting resources are were adequate to allow sufficient time to (i) perform a review of the consolidation and supporting financial statement disclosure schedules independent of the preparer (ii) adequately prepare for our quarterly reviews and annual audit and (iii) research all applicable accounting pronouncements as they relate to our financial statements and underlying disclosures.  These material weaknesses have not been remediated and continued through the end of the First Quarter 2013.  Due to these material weaknesses, in preparing our financial statements for the period ended March 31, 2013 we performed additional analysis and other post close procedures to ensure that such financial statements were stated fairly in all material respects in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.  Until such time as we remediate these material weaknesses, we expect that the material weaknesses in our disclosure controls and procedures will continue.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting.  There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during our last fiscal quarter that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
