PART I - FINANCIAL INFORMATION
The Registrant's unaudited interim financial statements are attached hereto. Unaudited Interim Financial Statements
Some of the statements contained in this quarterly report of Peregrine Industries, Inc. (hereinafter the "Company", "We" or the "Registrant") discuss future expectations, contain projections of our plan of operation or financial condition or state other forward-looking information. Forward-looking statements give our current expectations or forecasts of future events. You can identify these statements by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts. They use of words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "intend," "plan," "believe," and other words and terms of similar meaning in connection with any discussion of future operating or financial performance. From time to time, we also may provide forward-looking statements in other materials we release to the public.
Plan of Operation
We have no present operations or revenues and our current activities are related to seeking new business opportunities, including seeking an acquisition or merger with an operating company. The Registrant does not intend to limit itself to a particular industry and has not established any particular criteria upon which it shall consider and proceed with a business opportunity.
If the Company seeks to acquire another business or pursue a business opportunity, management would have substantial flexibility in identifying and selecting a prospective business. Registrant would not be obligated nor does management intend to seek pre-approval by our shareholders. Under the laws of the State of Florida, the consent of holders of a majority of the issued and outstanding shares, acting without a shareholders meeting, can approve an acquisition.
The Registrant is entirely dependent on the judgment of management in connection with the selection process for a target company. In evaluating a prospective business opportunity, we would consider, among other factors, the following: (i) costs associated with effecting a transaction; (ii) equity interest in and opportunity to control the prospective candidate; (iii) growth potential of the target business; (iv) experience and skill of management and availability of additional personnel; (v) necessary capital requirements; (vi) the prospective candidate's competitive position; (vii) stage of development of the business opportunity; (viii) the market acceptance of the business its products or services; (ix) the availability of audited financial statements of the potential business opportunity; and (x) the regulatory environment that may be applicable to any prospective business opportunity.
The foregoing criteria are not intended to be exhaustive and there may be other criteria that management may deemed relevant. In connection with an evaluation of a prospective or potential business opportunity, management may be expected to conduct a due diligence review.
We had operating expenses of $19,875 and $16,950 during the three-month periods ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively, consisting mainly of accounting fees, professional fees and general and administrative expenses. The Company does not expect its operating expenses to increase significantly until it starts to pursue a new business opportunity or enters into a business combination.
Liquidity and Capital Resources
We are dependent upon interim funding provided by management and/or related parties to pay professional fees and other expenses. We have no written finance agreement with management and/or related parties to provide any continued funding.
On December 31, 2010, we had no assets and $278,601 in liabilities.
As part of our intent to seek new business opportunities, we may determine to seek to raise funds from the sale of equity or debt securities. We have no agreements to issue any debt or equity securities and cannot predict whether equity or debt financing will become available at terms acceptable to us, if at all.
We anticipate that in connection with the commencement of a new business opportunity or consummation of a business combination, we will issue a substantial number of additional restricted shares or other securities. If such additional securities are issued, our shareholders will experience a dilution in their ownership interest in the Company. If a substantial number of shares are issued in connection with a business combination, a change in control may be expected to occur.
There are no limitations in our articles of incorporation on our ability to borrow funds or raise funds through the issuance of restricted common stock to pursue new business opportunities. Our limited resources and lack of operating history may make it difficult to do borrow funds or raise capital. Our inability to borrow funds or raise funds through the issuance of restricted common stock required to facilitate new business opportunities may have a material adverse effect on our financial condition and future prospects.
We have not entered into, and do not expect to enter into, financial instruments for trading or hedging purposes.
Evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures. As of December 31, 2010, the Company's chief executive officer/chief financial officer conducted an evaluation regarding the effectiveness of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act. Based upon the evaluation of these controls and procedures, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were effective as of the end of the period covered by this report.
Changes in internal controls. During the quarterly period covered by this report, no changes occurred in our internal control over financial reporting that materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PEREGRINE INDUSTRIES, INC.
1. Basis of Presentation
Peregrine Industries, Inc. (the "Company") was formed on October 1, 1995 for the purpose of manufacturing residential pool heaters. On March 29, 2004, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court confirmed the sale of the Peregrine corporate shell entity. The accounts of the former subsidiaries were not included in the sale and have not been carried forward.
The Financial Statements presented herein have been prepared by us in accordance with the accounting policies described in our June 30, 2010 Annual Report on Form 10-K and should be read in conjunction with the Notes to Financial Statements which appear in that report.
The preparation of these financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an on going basis, we evaluate our estimates, including those related intangible assets, income taxes, insurance obligations and contingencies and litigation. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other resources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.
In the opinion of management, the information furnished in this Form 10-Q reflects all adjustments necessary for a fair statement of the financial position and results of operations and cash flows as of and for the six-month periods endedDecember 31, 2010 and 2009. All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. The Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and therefore do not include some information and notes necessary to conform with annual reporting requirements.
Fresh Start Accounting: On September 4, 2002 all assets were transferred to the chapter 7 trustee in settlement of all outstanding corporate obligations. We adopted "fresh-start" accounting as of September 5, 2002 in accordance with procedures specified by AICPA Statement of Position ("SOP") No. 90-7, "Financial Reporting by Entities in Reorganization under the Bankruptcy Code."
On March 29, 2004, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida confirmed the order previously granted on March 15, 2004 for the sale of Peregrine as a shell entity. All results for periods including and subsequent to September 5, 2002 are referred to as those of the "Successor Company".
In accordance with SOP No. 90-7, the reorganized value of the Company was allocated to the Company's assets based on procedures specified by SFAS No. 141, "Business Combinations". Each liability existing at the plan sale date, other than deferred taxes, was stated at the present value of the amounts to be paid at appropriate market rates. It was determined that the Company's reorganization value computed immediately before September 5, 2002 was $0. We adopted "fresh-start" accounting because holders of existing voting shares immediately before filing and confirmation of the sale received less than 50% of the voting shares of the emerging entity and its reorganization value is less than its post-petition liabilities and allowed claims.
The accounts of the former subsidiaries were not included in the bankruptcy sale and have not been carried forward.
Change of Control: On February 12, 2004, the Trustee for Peregrine and Park Avenue Group, Inc. entered into a contract resulting in a change in control of Peregrine. On March 15, 2004, the Bankruptcy Court granted an order approving the contract and finding that Park Avenue Group is a good faith purchaser within the meaning of 11 USC Section 363(m). On March 29, 2004, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida confirmed the order previously granted on March 15, 2004.
The confirmed Court order provided that the existing officers and directors were deemed removed from office and also authorized the following: (i) the appointment of new members to the board of directors; (ii) the amendment of the Article of Incorporation to increase the number of authorized shares to 100,000,000 shares; (iii) the issuance of up to 30,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 to the new management;(iv) the authority to implement a reverse split of the issued and outstanding shares in a ratio to be determined by the board of directors; (v) the cancellation and extinguishment of all common share conversion rights of any kind, including without limitation, warrants, options, convertible bonds, other convertible debt instruments and convertible preferred stock; and (vi) the cancellation and extinguishment of all preferred shares of every series and accompanying conversion rights of any kind.
2. Earnings/Loss Per Share
Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing income available to common shareholders (the numerator) by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding (the denominator) for the period. Diluted earnings per share assume that any dilutive convertible securities outstanding were converted, with related preferred stock dividend requirements and outstanding common shares adjusted accordingly. It also assumes that outstanding common shares were increased by shares issuable upon exercise of those stock options for which market price exceeds the exercise price, less shares which could have been purchased by us with the related proceeds. In periods of losses, diluted loss per share is computed on the same basis as basic loss per share as the inclusion of any other potential shares outstanding would be anti-dilutive.
3. New Accounting Standards
In December 2007, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued FASB Statement No. 141 (Revised 2007), Business Combinations (SFAS 141R). SFAS 141R provides additional guidance on improving the relevance, representational faithfulness, and comparability of the financial information that a reporting entity provides in its financial reports about a business combination and its effects. This Statement applies prospectively to business combinations for which the acquisition date is on or after the beginning of the first annual reporting period beginning on or after December 15, 2008.
In December 2007, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued FASB Statement No. 160, Noncontrolling Interests in Consolidated Financial Statementsan amendment of ARB No. 51 (SFAS 160). SFAS 160 amends ARB No. 51 to establish accounting and reporting standards for the noncontrolling interest in a subsidiary and for the deconsolidation of a subsidiary. This Statement is effective for fiscal years and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning on or after December 15, 2008. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of adopting SFAS 160 on our financial statements.
In May 2008, the FASB issued SFAS No. 162, The Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. SFAS 162 identifies the sources of accounting principles and the framework for selecting the principles used in the preparation of financial statements of nongovernmental entities that are presented in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States. SFAS 162 is effective 60 days following the SECs approval of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board amendments to AU Section 411, The Meaning of Present Fairly in Conformity With Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. Our Company is currently evaluating the impact of SFAS 162 on its financial statements but does not expect it to have a material effect.
Management does not anticipate that the adoption of these standards will have a material impact on the financial statements.
5. Related Party Transactions not Disclosed Elsewhere
Due Related Parties: Amounts due related parties consist of corporate reinstatement expenses paid by the principal shareholder, cash advances made to the company as well as the fair value of services provided without cost and the use of office space provided without cost. Such items totaled $243,000 at December 31, 2010. We expensed the fair value of services by an accrual of $32,000 for the six month interim period ended December 31, 2010.
6. Going Concern
The Company's financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and settlement of liabilities and commitments in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future. Sinceadopting "fresh-start" accounting as of September 5, 2002, the Company has accumulated losses aggregating to $436,485 and has insufficient working capital to meet operating needs for the next twelve months as of June 30, 2010, all of which raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.
