Laredo Oil, Inc.
Notes to Financial Statements
August 31, 2011
(Unaudited)
 
NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

Laredo Oil, Inc. (the “Company”) was in the development stage prior to the three months ended August 31, 2011.  During the three months ended August 31, 2011, the Company exited the development stage due to operating revenues generated by certain agreements.

On June 14, 2011, the Company entered into agreements with Stranded Oil Resources Corporation (“SORC”) to seek recovery of stranded crude oil from mature, declining oil fields by using the Enhanced Oil Recovery (“EOR”) method known as Underground Gravity Drainage (“UGD”).  Such agreements include license agreements, management services agreements, and other agreements (collectively “the Agreements”).

The Agreements stipulate that the Company and Mark See, the Company’s Chairman and CEO, will provide to SORC, management services and expertise through exclusive, perpetual license agreements and a management services agreement  (the “Management Service Agreement”) with SORC.  As consideration for the licenses to SORC, the Company will receive an interest in SORC’s net profits. The Management Service Agreement outlines that the Company will provide the services of key employees (“Key Persons”), including Mark See, in exchange for monthly and quarterly management service fees.  The monthly and quarterly management service fees provide funding for the salaries, benefit costs, and FICA taxes for the Key Persons identified in the agreement. The quarterly management fee of $122,500 per quarter is paid on the first day of each calendar quarter, and, as such, $40,833 has been recorded as deferred income at August 31, 2011.  In addition, SORC will reimburse the Company for monthly expenses incurred by the Key Persons in connection with their rendition of services under the Management Services Agreement.  The Company may submit written requests to SORC for additional funding for payment of the Company’s operating costs and expenses, which SORC, in its sole and absolute discretion, will determine whether or not to fund.

The initial funding commitment, subject to various conditions including certain milestones, is $16 million which can be increased by the SORC Board of Directors.  SORC is the Company’s sole provider of revenue.

SORC also provided $418,088 to the Company which was used for the sole purpose of paying and retiring in full certain of the Company’s debt obligations and accrued interest.  As of August 31, 2011, all debt obligations and accrued interest other than amounts owed to Alleghany Capital have been repaid.   Further, SORC provided $200,000 to the Company to reimburse a portion of the legal fees incurred in connection with the Agreements.  The proceeds used for retiring the debt obligations are recorded in additional paid in capital and reimbursement of legal fees are included in other income.

Liquidity
 
These financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis.  The Company has no significant operating history as of August 31, 2011, has net losses of $4.27 million for the three months ended August 31, 2011. The Company entered into the Agreements with SORC to fund operations and to provide working capital.  However, there is no assurance that in the future such financing will be available to meet the Company’s needs.

Management has undertaken steps as part of a plan to improve operations with the goal of sustaining our operations for the next twelve months and beyond.  These steps include (a) providing services and expertise under the Agreements to expand operations so that SORC generates gross profit; and (b) controlling overhead and expenses.  There can be no assurance that the Company can successfully accomplish these steps and it is uncertain that the Company will achieve a profitable level of operations and obtain additional financing.  There can be no assurance that any additional financing will be available to the Company on satisfactory terms and conditions, if at all.

The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result from the possible inability of the Company to continue as a going concern.

Basic and Diluted Loss per Share
 
The Company’s basic earnings per share (EPS) amounts have been computed based on the weighted-average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the period.  As the Company realized a net loss for the three months periods ended August 31, 2011 and 2010, no potentially dilutive securities were included in the calculation of diluted loss per share as their impact would have been anti-dilutive.

NOTE 2 - RECENT AND ADOPTED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS

The Company has reviewed recently issued accounting standards and plans to adopt those that are applicable to it.  It does not expect the adoption of those standards to have a material impact on its financial position, results of operations, or cash flows.

 
NOTE 3 - FAIR VALUE OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

The Company recorded warrant liability income of $442,027 and $379,899 for the three months ended August 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively.


NOTE 4- RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

In both November and December 2009, the Company issued a note payable to Mr. Kenneth Lipson, a shareholder owning over 5% of the Company’s common stock.  In June 2011, $75,000 in notes and $8,026 in accrued interest were repaid using proceeds provided by SORC as disclosed in Note 1.


NOTE 5 - STOCKHOLDERS' (DEFICIT) EQUITY

As of August 31, 2011, the Company has not granted any stock options. 

During the three months ended August 31, 2011, the Company issued $4,931,873 in warrants for 5,374,501 shares of common stock with a weighted average exercise price of $0.70 to an investment bank for its role in enabling the transactions with SORC.  In addition, the warrants previously issued to the convertible debt holders were repriced from $2.00 per share to $0.25 per share during the three months ended August 31, 2011.  A $179,515 expense was recorded in warrant liability income as a result of repricing revaluation on June 14, 2011.  All warrants as of August 31, 2011 are exercisable.

On June 14, 2011, as a result of the Agreements disclosed in Note 1, the warrants issued with the convertible notes were reclassified on the balance sheet to equity due to an amendment to the warrant agreement that removed the price protection on the warrants.  The warrants were revalued on June 14, 2011 and $634,240 in warrant liability was reclassified to additional paid in capital.

As discussed in Note 1, $418,088 was recorded as contributions from SORC for proceeds used to pay in full certain debt obligations and accrued interest.

 
NOTE 6 – CONVERTIBLE NOTES PAYABLE

During the three months ended August 31, 2011, the ten convertible notes totaling $300,000 and accrued interest of $35,062 were paid in full using proceeds received from SORC as disclosed in Note 1.

NOTE 7 – RESTATEMENT OF PREVIOUSLY ISSUED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Company’s management, in connection with their former auditors, determined that FASB Accounting Standards Codification Topic 815-40-15-5, "Derivatives and Hedging - Contracts in Entity's Own Equity" ("ASC 815-40"), should have been applied by the Company in the assessment of the warrants issued to Seaside 88 LP and Sutter Securities Incorporated in July 2010, as well as the warrants issued in connection with the convertible debt entered into during May and June 2010 which would have resulted in the Company classifying and recognizing certain warrants previously issued by the Company as a liability rather than as stockholders' equity.
 
Company management initially became aware of the possible applicability of ASC 815-40 as a result of an SEC comment letter related to the SEC's review of the Company's 10-K filing for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2010 and review of the Company’s 10-Q filings for the fiscal quarters ended August 31, 2010, November 30, 2010 and February 28, 2011.  The Company determined that the warrants issued to Seaside Sutter to purchase 975,000 shares of the Company's common stock, as well as the warrants issued to the Convertible Note holders to purchase 770,000 shares of the Company’s common stock were within the scope of ASC 815-40 due to the anti-dilution provisions contained in the warrants. Accordingly, the warrants have been classified as a warrant liability measured at fair value and the subsequent changes in fair value are recognized in the Statement of Operations.
 
In addition, the Company’s management, in connection with their auditors, determined that FASB Accounting Standards Codification Topic 470-20, "Debt With Conversion and Other Options” ("ASC 470-20"), should have been applied by the Company in the assessment of its contingent beneficial conversion feature which would result in the Company not recognizing the deferred financing expense into earnings until the contingency is resolved.

Restatements by the Company reflect certain adjustments to non-cash items in the Company's financial statements as a result of the correct application of ASC 815-40 regarding accounting for warrants and ASC 470-20 regarding accounting for contingent beneficial conversion feature on the convertible debt.  The restatements primarily reflect adjustments to:
 
 
• 
correct for the overstatement of additional paid in capital and understatement of the warrant liability reported on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2010 and Forms 10-Q for the periods ended August 31, 2010, November 30, 2010, and February 28, 2011.
     
 
• 
correct for the understatement of warrant liability income upon the quarterly revaluation of the warrant liability reported on Forms 10-Q for the periods ended August 31, 2010, November 30, 2010, and February 28, 2011.
     
 
• 
correct for the overstatement in the deferred financing asset and the related interest expense recorded to amortize this asset reported on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2010 and Forms 10-Q for the periods ended August 31, 2010, November 30, 2010, and February 28, 2011.
     
 
• 
correct for the understatement in Convertible Debt balance and overstatement of interest expense due to the incorrect recording of the warrants as a debt discount and the related amortization of the debt discount on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2010 and Forms 10-Q for the periods ended August 31, 2010, November 30, 2010, and February 28, 2011.

None of the accounting changes discussed above had any impact on the Company’s cash position, its cash flows or its future cash requirements.

ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

This report contains forward-looking statements that involve risk and uncertainties. We use words such as "anticipate", "believe", "plan", "expect", "future", "intend", and similar expressions to identify such forward-looking statements. Investors should be aware that all forward-looking statements contained within this filing are good faith estimates of management as of the date of this filing. Our actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements.

DESCRIPTION OF SIGNIFICANT CONTRACTS WITH STRANDED OIL RESOURCES CORPORATION

From its inception through October 2009, the Company was primarily engaged in acquisition and exploration efforts for mineral properties.  After a change in control in October 2009, the Company shifted its focus to locating mature oil fields with the intention of acquiring those oil fields and recovering stranded oil using enhanced oil recovery methods.  To date, the Company has not acquired any oil fields.  On June 14, 2011, the Company entered into several agreements with Stranded Oil Resources Corporation (“SORC”) to seek recovery of stranded crude oil from mature, declining oil fields by using the Enhanced Oil Recovery (“EOR”) method known as Underground Gravity Drainage (“UGD”).  Such agreements consist of a license agreement between the Company and SORC (the “SORC License Agreement”), a license agreement between the Company and Mark See, the Company’s Chairman and CEO  (the “MS-Company License Agreement”), an Additional Interests Grant Agreement between the Company and SORC, a Management Services Agreement between the Company and SORC (the “MSA”), a Finder’s Fee Agreement between the Company and SORC, and a Stockholders Agreement among the Company, SORC and Alleghany Capital Corporation, each of which are dated June 14, 2011 (collectively, the “Agreements”).

The Company and Mark See now provide to SORC management services and expertise pursuant to the SORC License Agreement, MS-Company License Agreement and the MSA.  As consideration for the licenses to SORC, the Company will receive an interest in SORC net profits as defined in the SORC License Agreement (the “Royalty”) which will range from 17.25% to 19.49%.  Under the SORC License Agreement, the Company agreed that a portion of the Royalty equal to at least 2.25% of the net profits shall be used to fund a long term incentive plan for the benefit of its employees, as determined by the Company’s board of directors. Additionally, in the event of a SORC IPO or certain other defined corporate events, the Company will receive a minimum of 17.25%, but not more than 19.49%, of the SORC common equity or proceeds emanating from the event in exchange for termination of the Royalty.   Under certain circumstances regarding termination of exclusivity and license terminations, the Royalty could be reduced to 7.25%.

The MSA provides that the Company will provide the services of key employees (“Key Persons”), including Mark See, in exchange for monthly and quarterly management service fees.  Mark See will act as the CEO of SORC pursuant to the MSA. He and other members of Company management will spend substantially all of their time and effort in fulfilling the terms of the Agreements whereby they use their best efforts to evaluate, acquire, develop and recover crude oil from fields conducive to the UGD oil recovery method.  The quarterly management services fee is $122,500 and the monthly management services fee is comprised of the salaries, benefit costs, and FICA taxes for the Key Persons identified in the Agreements.  In addition, SORC will reimburse the Company for expenses incurred by the Key Persons in connection with their rendition of services under the MSA.  The Company may submit written requests to SORC for additional funding for payment of the Company’s operating costs and expenses which SORC, in its sole and absolute discretion, will determine whether or not to fund.

It is expected that SORC will be funded solely by Alleghany Capital Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Alleghany (“Alleghany Capital”), in exchange for issuance by SORC of 12% cumulative preferred stock and common stock.   Prior to the Company receiving any cash distributions from SORC, all accrued dividends must be paid and preferred shares redeemed.  The initial funding commitment, subject to various conditions including certain milestones, is $16 million which can be increased by the SORC board of directors.

Pursuant to the Additional Interests Grant Agreement, SORC provided $418,088 to the Company which was used for the sole purpose of paying and retiring in full certain of the Company’s debt obligations and accrued interest.  As of the date of this filing, all debt obligations and accrued interest other than amounts owed to Alleghany Capital have been repaid.  Under the Finder’s Fee Agreement, SORC agreed to provide funding to the Company for amounts payable to an investment bank for certain finder’s fees relating to Alleghany’s investment in SORC, which amounts shall not exceed $1,100,000 in the aggregate.  Under the MS-Company License Agreement, Mark See granted the Company an exclusive license to use certain intellectual property.  The Stockholders Agreement, which shall not be effective unless and until the Royalty is converted into SORC common stock pursuant to the License Agreement, provides, among other things, that the Company shall have certain registration rights with respect to the SORC common stock it acquires.

ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS - continued
 
The UGD method uses conventional mining processes to establish a chamber underneath an existing oil field from where closely spaced wellbores are intended to be drilled up into the reservoir, using residual radial pressure and gravity to then drain the targeted reservoir through the wellbores.  This method is applicable to mature oil fields that have very specific geological characteristics.  The Company has done extensive research and has identified oil fields within the United States that it believes are qualified for UGD recovery methods.  The Company intends to pursue and recover stranded oil from selected mature fields chosen from this group which may be acquired by SORC in its sole and absolute discretion.  States containing within their boundaries oil fields which are initially being considered for acquisition by SORC include, but are not limited to, New Mexico, West Virginia, Mississippi, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Montana.
 
We believe the costs of implementing the UGD method are significantly lower than those presently experienced by commonly used EOR methods.  We also estimate that we can materially increase the field oil production rate from prior periods and recover amounts of oil equal to or greater than amounts previously recovered from the mature fields selected.  

The Company is a management services company managing both the acquisition of mature oil fields and the recovery of stranded oil from those fields using enhanced oil recovery methods for its sole customer, SORC, an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Alleghany.  
 
To date neither the Company nor SORC have acquired any oil fields.  When SORC acquires a targeted oil field, it will continue to operate the producing field and expects to generate revenue and profit from doing so. Once development of the underground chamber and the UGD method is prepared for operation, the conventional wells will be capped after UGD production has begun.  The effect of such operations should result in minimal disruption of oil production from the SORC field investments.  The Company has agreed with SORC that it will not acquire any fields associated with UGD development.

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

As a result of signing the Agreements with SORC, we started receiving payments under the MSA effective June 14, 2011.  As of the date of this report, we are pursuing negotiations for targeted fields on behalf of SORC, but can provide no assurance that we will be successful in our acquisition efforts.

We received our initial license revenue from SORC during the quarter ended August 31, 2011.  Pursuant to the contracts, we received and recorded management service fee revenue totaling $421,399 for the three months ended August 31, 2011.  Direct costs associated with this revenue totaled $224,184 for the three months ended August 31, 2011.

We incurred operating expenses of $5,103,962 and $512,407 for the three months ended August 31, 2011 and 2010, respectively. These expenses consisted of general operating expenses incurred in connection with the day to day operation of our business, the preparation and filing of our required reports, and costs associated with fund raising.  The increase in expenses for the three months ended August 31, 2011 as compared to the same period in 2010 is primarily attributable to the costs of closing the Allegany transaction, as well as hiring new employees.

Additionally, for the quarters ended August 31, 2011 and 2010, the Company experienced gains on changes of value of the warrant liability of $442,027 and $379,899, respectively, due to decreases in the common stock price in the respective periods, as well as a change in the exercise price on certain warrants.  During the three months ended August 31, 2011, the Company fixed the price of the warrants issued in connection with the $300,000 Convertible Notes to $0.25 per share and removed the price protection originally included with the warrants.  Removal of the price protection feature resulted in reclassifying the warrant liability to additional paid in capital.  However, Company losses will continue to be affected by changes of value of the warrant liability associated with the warrants which contain price-protection provisions.  Those warrants will be outstanding until they are either exercised or expire in July 2015.
 
Beginning on June 14, 2011, the Company began its operations in accordance with the Agreements with SORC.  As of the filing of this report, the Company has presented opportunities for suitable fields to the SORC board of directors. Negotiations with selected field owners are ongoing and contractors necessary to assist the Company in identifying and acquiring oil properties have been retained by SORC.  Three new employees have been hired, two based in the new Colorado office and one additional person based in the Austin, Texas headquarters office.

ITEM 2.  MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS - continued
 
LIQUIDITY & CAPITAL RESOURCES

Due to the nature of the SORC transaction, the Company forecasts that it will need no additional funding in order to execute its agreements with SORC.  In accordance with the SORC license and management services agreements, the Company believes that it will receive sufficient working capital necessary to meet its obligations under the Agreements.  The Company will provide the know-how, expertise, and management required to identify, evaluate, acquire, test and develop targeted properties, and SORC will provide all required funding and will own the acquired assets.  It is expected that SORC will be funded solely by Alleghany Capital in exchange for issuance by SORC to Alleghany Capital of 12% cumulative preferred stock and common stock in amounts to be determined.   Prior to the Company receiving any royalty cash distributions from SORC, all preferred share accrued dividends must be paid and preferred shares redeemed.  The initial funding commitment, subject to various conditions including certain milestones, is $16 million which can be increased by the SORC board of directors.
 
Our cash and cash equivalents at August 31, 2011 and 2010 was $87,045 and $270,457, respectively.  For the three months ended August 31, 2011, the Company received $1,088,113 from SORC in management fees, reimbursement for transaction expenses, and funds used to retire a portion of the Company's debt.  Total debt outstanding as of the filing date of this report is $350,000 owed to Alleghany Capital. 

The Company has no significant operating history as of August 31, 2011, has net losses of $4.27 million for the three months ended August 31, 2011. The Company entered into the Agreements with SORC to fund operations and to provide working capital.  However, there is no assurance that in the future such financing will be available to meet the Company’s needs.

Management has undertaken steps as part of a plan to improve operations with the goal of sustaining our operations for the next twelve months and beyond.  These steps include (a) providing services and expertise under the Agreements to expand operations so that SORC generates gross profit; and (b) controlling overhead and expenses.  There can be no assurance that the Company can successfully accomplish these steps and it is uncertain that the Company will achieve a profitable level of operations and obtain additional financing.  There can be no assurance that any additional financing will be available to the Company on satisfactory terms and conditions, if at all.

The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments to reflect the possible future effects on the recoverability and classification of assets or the amounts and classifications of liabilities that may result from the possible inability of the Company to continue as a going concern.
 
CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES

The process of preparing financial statements requires that we make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of liabilities and stockholders’ equity at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Such estimates primarily relate to revaluation of warrants as of the date of the financial statements; accordingly, actual results may differ from estimated amounts. Our estimates and assumptions are based on current facts, historical experience and various other factors we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. The most significant estimates with regard to the financial statements included with this report relate to valuation of warrants.
 
These estimates and assumptions are reviewed periodically and, as adjustments become necessary, they are reported in earnings in the periods in which they become known.

OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements.

ITEM 3.  QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK
 
Our exposure to market risk is confined to our cash equivalents. We invest in high-quality financial instruments and we believe we are subject to limited credit risk. Due to the short-term nature of our cash, we do not believe that we have any material exposure to interest rate risk arising from our investments.
 
ITEM 4.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
 
(a)            Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures
 
The Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, after evaluating the effectiveness of the Company’s controls and procedures (as defined in the Securities Act of 1934 Rule 13a-15(e) or Rule 15d-15(e)) as of the end of the period covered by this report, have concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are not effective to give reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed in reports that the Company files under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported as and when required.

Our size has prevented us from being able to employ sufficient resources to enable us to have an adequate level of supervision and segregation of duties.  Therefore, it is difficult to effectively segregate accounting duties which comprises a material weakness in internal controls.  This lack of segregation of duties leads management to conclude that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures are not effective to give reasonable assurance that the information required to be disclosed in reports that the Company files under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported as and when required.
