NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
June 30, 2010
NOTE 1 BASIS OF PRESENTATION
The interim financial statements of Smart Ventures, Inc. (the Company) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 and for the period from the date of inception on November 22, 2006 to June 30, 2010 are not audited. The financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America.
In the opinion of management, the accompanying financial statements contain all adjustments, consisting only of normal recurring accruals, necessary for a fair presentation of the Companys financial position as of June 30, 2010 and the results of its operations and cash flows for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 and for the period from the date of inception on November 22, 2006 to June 30, 2010.
NOTE 2 NATURE OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS
The Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments purchased with maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.
The Company considers revenue to be recognized at the time the service is performed.
USE OF ESTIMATES
The preparation of the Companys financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ from these estimates.
FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
The Companys short-term financial instruments consist of cash and cash equivalents and accounts payable. The carrying amounts of these financial instruments approximate fair value because of their short-term maturities. Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to a concentration of credit risk consist principally of cash. During the year the Company did not maintain cash deposits at financial institution in excess of the $250,000 limit covered by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The Company does not hold or issue financial instruments for trading purposes nor does it hold or issue interest rate or leveraged derivative financial instruments.
EARNINGS PER SHARE
Basic Earnings per Share (EPS) is computed by dividing net income available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common stock shares outstanding during the year. Diluted EPS is computed by dividing net income available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of common stock shares outstanding during the year plus potential
dilutive instruments such as stock options and warrant. The effect of stock options on diluted EPS is determined through the application of the treasury stock method, whereby proceeds received by the Company based on assumed exercises are hypothetically used to repurchase the Companys common stock at the average market price during the period. Loss per share is unchanged on a diluted basis since the assumed exercise of common stock equivalents would have an anti-dilutive effect.
The Company uses the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes, which requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of temporary differences between the carrying amounts and the tax basis of certain assets and liabilities. Deferred income tax assets and liabilities are computed annually for the difference between the financial statement and tax bases of assets and liabilities that will result in taxable or deductible amounts in the future, based on enacted tax laws and rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established when necessary to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized. Income tax expense is the tax payable or refundable for the period, plus or minus the change during the period in deferred tax assets and liabilities.
Deferred income taxes may arise from temporary differences resulting from income and expanse items reported for financial accounting and tax purposes in different periods. Deferred taxes are classified as current or non-current, depending on the classification of the assets and liabilities to which they relate. Deferred taxes arising from temporary differences that are not related to an asset or liability are classified as current or non-current depending on the periods in which the temporary differences are expected to reverse. The Company had no significant deferred tax items arise during any of the periods presented.
CONCENTRATION OF CREDIT RISK
The Company does not have any concentration of related financial credit risk.
RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
The Company does not expect the adoption of any recent accounting pronouncements to have a material impact on its financial statements.
NOTE 3 MINERAL CLAIMS
The Company entered into a mineral claims purchase agreement on September 1, 2007, whereby the Company purchased certain mineral claims located in the Laurentides Region near Mont Laurier, Quebec. These mineral claims were acquired from an individual for cash in the amount of $6,500. In addition the Company is required to expend additional monies in subsequent years to maintain these claims. After the acquisition of these mineral claims, management performed an impairment test to determine the carrying value of these claims. Management determined that there was no reasonable method to value the claims and have impaired the cost of these claims and recorded the expense as exploration costs during the year ended December 31, 2007.
NOTE 4 COMMON STOCK
The Company issued 6,000,000 shares of its common stock in December 2006 in exchange for services rendered valued at $ 10,000.
During the year ended December 31, 2007 the Company issued 27,000,000 shares of its common stock for cash and for stock subscriptions receivable valued at $.00167 per share for an aggregate total of $ 45,000. At December 31, 2007 there was an outstanding stock subscription receivable in the amount of $10,000. The Company received payment of this receivable in January of 2008.
NOTE 5 GOING CONCERN
The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. As shown in the accompanying financial statements, the Company has no sales and has incurred a net loss of $84,565 since inception. The future of the Company is dependent upon its ability to obtain financing and upon future profitable operations from the development of its mineral properties. Management has plans to seek additional capital through a private placement and public offering of its common stock. The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classifications of recorded assets, or the amounts of and the classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the Company cannot continue in existence.
NOTE 6 SUBSEQUENT EVENTS
The Company has evaluated subsequent events through August 1, 2010, which is the date the financial statements were issued.
MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OR PLAN OF OPERATION
This section of the prospectus includes a number of forward-looking statements that reflect our current views with respect to future events and financial performance. Forward-looking statements are often identified by words like: believe, expect, estimate, anticipate, intend, project and similar expressions, or words which, by their nature, refer to future events. You should not place undue certainty on these forward-looking statements, which apply only as of the date of this prospectus. These forward-looking states are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from historical results or out predictions.
PLAN OF OPERATION
We are a start-up, exploration stage corporation and have not yet generated or realized any revenues from our business operations.
We will be conducting research in the form of exploration of our claims. Our exploration program is explained below. We are not going to buy or sell any plant or significant equipment during the next twelve months.
Our exploration target is to find an ore body containing gold or other precious and base metals. Until recently, prices of gold, silver and platinum were at their highest prices in years. The price of base metals (copper, lead, zinc, etc.) were at historic highs. Due to the economic unrest and the threat of a serious recession the prices of all of the above have plummeted. Uranium peaked and currently is down in price nearly 50%. Mining prospects that a few months ago would be economically feasible may not be at this time. With these factors being present and the outlook, both near and far being, at best, uncertain we believe that our claims must be reevaluated. The above cautionary statements do not indicate that we intend to abandon the exploration of our claims, but that the prospects of success should be reassessed and investigated further. We plan on entering into discussions with our independent consultants to attempt to make informed decisions regarding the future of the Ruza claims. Coincidental with these discussions, we will investigate the possibilities of attracting further capital in one form or another for exploration of the Ruza Claims. Availability of these funds from the further sale of our common stock, publicly or privately, or via a joint venture will also influence our decision on whether to proceed or not. Should our geological consultants recommend continuation of our exploration program and if, under the present economic circumstances allow us to properly fund ongoing operations, we fully intend on proceeding with our business plan.
Our success depends upon finding mineralized material of commercial size and quality. This includes a determination by our consultant if the mineral claim contains viable mineralization. He will make the determination based upon the results of our exploration. We have not selected a consultant, who will be a mining engineer and supervise our exploration program, as of the date of this prospectus and will not do so until our exploration program is funded, of which there is no assurance. Mineralized material is a mineralized body, which has been delineated by appropriate spaced drilling or underground sampling to support sufficient tonnage and average grade of metals to justify removal. If we don't find mineralized material or we cannot remove mineralized material, either because we do not have the money to do it or because it is not economically feasible to do it, we will cease operations and you will lose your investment.
We must conduct exploration to determine what amount of minerals, if any, exist on our properties and if any minerals which are found can be economically extracted and profitably processed.
The mining claims are without known reserves and the proposed program is exploratory in nature. Exploration and surveying has not been initiated and will not be initiated until we raise additional funding. That is because we do not have money to start exploration. Once the additional financing is identified and secured, we intend to start exploration operations. To our knowledge, our claims have never been mined.
We intend to implement an exploration program which consists of mapping, establishing a grid, a magnetometer survey and surface and core sampling.
If we are unable to complete any phase of exploration because we don't have enough money, we will cease operations until we raise more money. If we can't or don't raise more money, we will cease operations. If we cease operations, we don't know what we will do and we don't have any plans to do anything.
We do not intend to hire additional employees at this time. All of the work on the mineral claim will be conduct by unaffiliated independent contractors that we will hire. The independent contractors will be responsible for surveying, geology, engineering, exploration, and excavation. The geologists will evaluate the information derived from the exploration and excavation and the engineers will advise us on the economic feasibility of removing the mineralized material.
