ELRAY RESOURCES, INC.
(A Development Stage Company)
NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
September 30, 2012
(Unaudited)

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements of Elray Resources, Inc. (“Elray” or the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s annual report for the year ended December 31, 2011 on Form 10-K filed on April 13, 2012.

In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of financial position and the results of operations for the interim periods presented have been reflected herein.  The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. Notes to the consolidated financial statements which would substantially duplicate the disclosure contained in the audited consolidated financial statements for the most recent fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 have been omitted.   

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the balance sheet.  Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid short-term investments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The Company maintains its cash in institutions insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (“FDIC”). Beginning December 31, 2010 through December 31, 2012, all noninterest-bearing transaction accounts were fully insured, regardless of the balance of the account, at all FDIC-insured institutions. This unlimited insurance coverage was separate from, and in addition to, the insurance coverage provided to the depositor’s other accounts held by a FDIC-insured institution, which are insured for balances up to $250,000 per depositor until December 31, 2013. At September 30, 2012, the amounts held in banks did not exceed the insured limit.

Restricted Cash

At September 30, 2012, the Company owed $2,000,000 to Rousay Holdings Ltd. who later entered into an amended note agreement with the Company. The Company has proceeds from the note payable to Rousay Holdings Ltd. of $900,337 held in an attorney escrow account at September 30, 2012. Subsequent to September 30, 2012, the $900,337 was returned to Rousay Holdings Ltd. as a result of the amendment of the original note agreement dated April 25, 2012 (See Note 3).

Subsequent Events

Elray evaluated subsequent events through the date these financial statements were issued for disclosure purposes.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Elray’s management does not believe that any recently issued effective pronouncements, or pronouncements issued but not yet effective, if adopted, would have a material effect on the accompanying financial statements.

NOTE 2 – GOING CONCERN
 
The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Elray have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business.  The Company sustained a net loss of $2,012,030 and utilized cash for operating activities of $1,255,387 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.  The Company had a working capital deficiency, stockholders’ deficiency and accumulated deficit of $2,717,292, $2,717,292 and $9,032,369, respectively, at September 30, 2012.  These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Without realization of additional capital, it would be unlikely for Elray to continue as a going concern.  Elray's management plans on raising cash from public or private debt or equity financing, on an as needed basis, and in the longer term, revenues from the gambling business.  Elray's ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on these additional cash financings, and, ultimately, upon achieving profitable operations through the development of its gambling business.

On December 9, 2011, as a result of the Splitrock transaction, the Company assumed a $25,000 convertible note. The note was due on August 4, 2012 with 10% annual interest.  The note was convertible to Splitrock’s common stock at $0.10 per share prior to December 9, 2011 and is now convertible to 7,545,272 shares of the Company’s common stock. The Company recorded a beneficial conversion feature of $5,181 on December 9, 2011 and amortized debt discount of $4,704 during the nine months ended September 30, 2012. The Company did not repay the note on August 4, 2012 and this note is currently in default.
 
On October 12, 2011, the Company entered into a convertible note agreement with JSJ Investments, Inc. (“JSJ”) for $25,000 in cash. The note is for one year and bears interest at a rate of 8% per annum. From April 12, 2012 to April 12, 2013, the note holder has the option to convert the note to common shares in the Company at a discount of 50% of the average of the preceding seven days closing price.  On May 4, 2012, JSJ converted this note into 11,986,301 shares of common stock.

Due to the JSJ and Asher notes’ conversion feature, the actual number of shares of common stock that would be required if a conversion of the note was made through the issuance of common stock cannot be predicted, and the Company could be required to issue an amount of shares that may cause it to exceed its authorized common share amount. As a result, the conversion feature requires derivative accounting treatment and has been bifurcated from the note and is “marked to market” each reporting period through the statements of operations.
 
The conversion feature of the Second JSJ Note, the First Asher Note, Second Asher Note, and the Third Asher Note was valued at $40,743, $54,486, $42,236, and $46,970, respectively, on the issuance date. As a result, these notes were fully discounted and the fair value of the conversion feature in excess of the principal amount of these notes totaled $51,935 was expensed immediately as additional interest expense.
 
Loans from shareholders
 
On September 5, 2008, Elmside Pty Ltd, a company related to a former director, agreed to an interest free loan of $55,991 to the Company on an as-needed basis to fund the business operations and expenses of the Company until December 9, 2011, the due date of the loan. The note is in default.
 
Long-term note payable
 
On February 1, 2012, the Company entered into an agreement with Gold Globe Investments Limited (“GoldGlobe”) whereby Gold Globe would loan the Company $20,000 in tranches of $5,000 each, paid as needed by the Company. The loan is due in two years at an interest rate of 12% per annum. As of September 30, 2012, the Company had repaid the $10,000 received to GoldGlobe.
 
NOTE 4 – DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES – NOTE CONVERSION FEATURE
 
Due to the conversion feature contained in the First JSJ Note, the Second JSJ Note, the First Asher Note, the Second Asher Note and the Third Asher Note issued, the actual number of shares of common stock that would be required if a conversion of the note as further described in Note 3 was made through the issuance of the Company’s common stock cannot be predicted, and the Company could be required to issue an amount of shares that may cause it to exceed its authorized share amount. As a result, the conversion feature requires derivative accounting treatment and will be bifurcated from the note and “marked to market” each reporting period through the income statement. The fair value of the conversion future of these notes was recognized as a derivative liability instrument and will be measured at fair value at each reporting period.
 
The Company remeasured the fair value of the instrument as of September 30, 2012, and recorded an unrealized gain of $3,506 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. At September, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the derivative liability associated with the note conversion feature was $119,389 and $28,595, respectively. The Company determined the fair values of these liabilities using a Black-Scholes valuation model with the following assumptions:

Overview

Elray Resource, Inc. was incorporated in Nevada on December 13, 2006. Its wholly-owned subsidiary, Angkor Wat Minerals Ltd. was incorporated in Cambodia on June 26, 2006.

Elray owned a 100% interest in Porphyry Creek, a 90 square kilometer gold and copper claim located in Cambodia. On February 10, 2011, Elray entered into an agreement to dispose of Angkor Wat Minerals in exchange for 56,847,500 ordinary shares of Cambodian Gold PLC, and the majority shareholders and board of directors of the Company approved a dividend of 56,847,500 shares of Cambodian Gold PLC to the Elray shareholders of record as of February 7, 2011 on a basis of one share of Cambodian Gold for each share owned in Elray. As of the current date, Cambodian Gold PLC has failed to take transfer of the gold mining assets and issue the shares in exchange. Elray has failed to find a buyer for these assets and has discontinued maintenance and exploitation of the gold mining properties. Exploitation of the gold mining properties is not part of the current business strategy and therefore does not justify the expenditure and resources necessary to maintain and exploit them.

Plan of Operation

Elray is in the process of developing an online casino and related technologies to provide gaming to customers where such activity is legal. Elray will utilize software provided by a third party vendor to provide online casino games in selected markets. Development of the online casino games requires Elray to customize the appearance and branding of the third party software and establish merchant services to accept payments and facilitate distribution of winnings.

After completion of the development phase, our primary function is to market the online casino and provide support to online gamers.

Player acquisition is a key factor for organic growth in the online gaming industry. Players are primarily acquired from affiliates for a fixed fee or percentage of earnings based on negotiated predetermined criteria. Affiliates are websites or individuals that attract players through various means such as player news/interest websites, email campaigns or other relationships. The key is that payment to affiliates takes place only when negotiated criteria are met. The criteria may be player minimum deposit, level of play, or revenue earned.  The critical element is that unlike most marketing campaigns, the revenues returned by marketing spend is predictable.

The key elements of player retention are the creation of exciting opportunities to maintain player interest and increase play frequency. Similar to land-based casinos’ compensation programs; the tools used for this purpose include prizes, “free money,” opportunities to play against famous (or infamous) players, and tournament qualification.

Expenses

During the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, general and administrative expenses were $930,977 and $13,252, respectively.

Interest Expenses

During the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, interest expense was $173,537 and $0, respectively.

We incurred net losses from operations of $1,093,069 and $13,252 for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The increase of net loss in 2012 was as a result of the items discussed above.

Nine months ended September 30, 2012 compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2011.

Revenues

We did not generate any revenues during the reporting periods.
 
Expenses

During the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, general and administrative expenses were $1,663,222 and $757,458, respectively. In 2012, the Company incurred consulting fees $430,044, stock-based compensation of $418,415, legal fees related to litigation of $335,520, and online gaming and related technology development costs of $313,370 whereas in 2011, these expenses were $0, $720,000, $0, and $0, respectively. Stock-based compensation for the three months ended June 30, 2011 was mainly for the consulting services related to the acquisition of assets from Splitrock Ventures (BVI) Limited and the planned divestment of the Angor Wat mining operation.

Interest Expenses

During the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, interest expense was $353,504 and $0, respectively. The increase of interest expense was due to the liabilities assumed in December 2011 pursuant to the Amended Splitrock Agreement and notes issued during the nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Net Loss

We incurred net losses from operations of $2,012,030 and $1,955,284 for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The increase of net loss in 2012 was as a result of the items discussed above.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our cash used in operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $1,255,387 compared to $32,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. The increase in cash used in operations was primarily attributable to activities related to the acquisition and legal proceedings with Golden Match, and new project development during the nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Our cash used in investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $900,337, compared to $0 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. The increase is due to restricted cash of $900,337 held in escrow during the settlement process with Rousay Holdings, Ltd. related to a promissory note.

Our cash provided by financing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2012 was $2,142,500, compared to $32,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2011. The increase is mainly due to proceeds from the issuance of convertible note payable received in 2012 of $2,132,500.

Since its inception, the Company has financed its cash requirements from the sale of common stock and shareholder loans. Uses of funds have included activities to establish our business, professional fees, exploration expenses and other general and administrative expenses.

Due to our lack of operating history and present inability to generate revenues, there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

Material Events and Uncertainties

Our operating results are difficult to forecast. Our prospects should be evaluated in light of the risks, expenses and difficulties commonly encountered by comparable development stage companies.

There can be no assurance that we will successfully address such risks, expenses and difficulties.

ITEM 3.  QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.
