Item 1. Business

 

Company Overview

 

We were incorporated on August 17, 2010, under the laws of the state of Nevada. We were originally engaged in the exploration of certain mineral claims located in Elko County, Nevada.  On September 10, 2012, we entered into an Agreement of Conveyance, Transfer and Assignment of Membership Interests and Assumption of Obligations (the “Agreement”) with our former sole officer and director, Ruth Cruz Santos.  Pursuant to the Agreement, we transferred all membership interests in our operating subsidiary, LRE Exploration LLC, to Ms. Santos.  In exchange for this assignment of membership interests, Ms. Santos agreed to assume and cancel all liabilities relating to our former business of exploring certain mining claims located in Elko County, Nevada.  In addition, Ms. Santos agreed to release all liability under certain promissory notes due and owing to her.  As a result of the Agreement, we are no longer pursuing the mineral exploration opportunities located in Elko County, Nevada.


We are currently pursuing a new mineral exploration opportunities under the direction of new management.  On November 2, 2012, we entered into a letter agreement with Magna Management Ltd. (“Magna”) under which we have been granted the exclusive right, for a period of sixty (60) days, to negotiate for the purchase of all rights held by Magna in the mineral property known as Pony Mountain Gold, located in the Mineral Hills District (commonly called the Pony District) in southwestern Montana.  During the exclusive negotiation period, we will have access to all documentation and information regarding the title and geology of the property and any other information necessary for the completion of our due diligence.  We anticipate that our purchase of Magna’s rights to the property, if consummated, would be made through a combination of cash payment and issuance of common stock, with the rights being assigned to a wholly-owned subsidiary to be formed.  Pricing and other details of the potential acquisition of Magna’s rights are the subject of ongoing negotiations.


The Pony Mountain Gold property is comprised of an approximately 4000-acre package of properties, assembled over the years by a local family and local geologist.  The property contains several previously-mined, underground hard-rock vein systems, such as the Mountain Cliff, Strawberry-Keystone, Amy, and Atlantic-Pacific (A-P) mines. Historically, the Pony Mountain Gold property has been productive, and we believe it has potential for new productivity.  


In the event that we acquire Magna’s rights to the Pony Mountain Gold property, we will assume Magna’s rights and duties under a Memorandum of Understanding between Magna and the various owners of the property (the “MOU”).  As the assignee of Magna’s rights under the MOU, we would be entitled to exclusive proprietary marketing rights for the property in exchange for total payments of $3,000,000 to be made in quarterly installments of $250,000 each.  The deadline for the first installment payment to the owners, as currently extended, is December 5, 2012.  All net revenues received from third-party processors of material mined from the property will be paid to the owners of the property and applied to the total purchase price until paid in full.  The owners will retain a perpetual 2% net smelter royalty.  Closing of the transaction contemplated by the MOU will be documented under a definitive Mining Lease and Option Agreement.


Magna has engaged Moen Excavating, LLC to take and prepare samples from dumps located on the Pony Mountain Gold property, to coordinate laboratory testing of samples taken from the property, and to conduct negotiations with the Golden Sunlight-Barrick mill for the processing of material from the property. Magna has also agreed to engage Moen Excavating for all surface work on the property and for the future hauling of dump material from the property to the mill. In the event that we are assigned Magna’s rights to the property, we plan to continue the engagement with Moen Excavating as Magna’s assignee.


Item 2. Properties


We do not currently own or lease any real property.

Item 3. Legal Proceedings

 

We are not a party to any pending legal proceeding. We are not aware of any pending legal proceeding to which any of our officers, directors, or any beneficial holders of 5% or more of our voting securities are adverse to us or have a material interest adverse to us.

Market Information

 

Our common stock is quoted under the symbol “LRDR” on the OTCBB operated by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, Inc. (“FINRA”) and the OTCQB operated by OTC Markets Group, Inc.  Few market makers continue to participate in the OTCBB system because of high fees charged by FINRA.  Consequently, market makers that once quoted our shares on the OTCBB system may no longer be posting a quotation for our shares. As of the date of this report, however, our shares are quoted by several market makers on the OTCQB. The criteria for listing on either the OTCBB or OTCQB are similar and include that we remain current in our SEC reporting. Our reporting is presently current and, since inception, we have filed our SEC reports on time.


A trading market for our securities did not begin to develop until after the fiscal year ended August 31, 2012.


The following tables set forth the range of high and low prices for our common stock for the each of the periods indicated as reported by the OTCQB. These quotations reflect inter-dealer prices, without retail mark-up, mark-down or commission and may not necessarily represent actual transactions.

Penny Stock

 

The SEC has adopted rules that regulate broker-dealer practices in connection with transactions in penny stocks. Penny stocks are generally equity securities with a market price of less than $5.00, other than securities registered on certain national securities exchanges or quoted on the NASDAQ system, provided that current price and volume information with respect to transactions in such securities is provided by the exchange or system. The penny stock rules require a broker-dealer, prior to a transaction in a penny stock, to deliver a standardized risk disclosure document prepared by the SEC, that: (a) contains a description of the nature and level of risk in the market for penny stocks in both public offerings and secondary trading; (b) contains a description of the broker's or dealer's duties to the customer and of the rights and remedies available to the customer with respect to a violation of such duties or other requirements of the securities laws; (c) contains a brief, clear, narrative description of a dealer market, including bid and ask prices for penny stocks and the significance of the spread between the bid and ask price; (d) contains a toll-free telephone number for inquiries on disciplinary actions; (e) defines significant terms in the disclosure document or in the conduct of trading in penny stocks; and (f) contains such other information and is in such form, including language, type size and format, as the SEC shall require by rule or regulation.

 

The broker-dealer also must provide, prior to effecting any transaction in a penny stock, the customer with (a) bid and offer quotations for the penny stock; (b) the compensation of the broker-dealer and its salesperson in the transaction; (c) the number of shares to which such bid and ask prices apply, or other comparable information relating to the depth and liquidity of the market for such stock; and (d) a monthly account statement showing the market value of each penny stock held in the customer's account.

 

In addition, the penny stock rules require that prior to a transaction in a penny stock not otherwise exempt from those rules, the broker-dealer must make a special written determination that the penny stock is a suitable investment for the purchaser and receive the purchaser's written acknowledgment of the receipt of a risk disclosure statement, a written agreement as to transactions involving penny stocks, and a signed and dated copy of a written suitability statement.

 

These disclosure requirements may have the effect of reducing the trading activity for our common stock. Therefore, stockholders may have difficulty selling our securities.

 

Holders of Our Common Stock

 

As of November 20, 2012, we had 178,500,000 shares of our common stock issued and outstanding, held by seventy-seven (77) shareholders of record.

 

Dividends

 

There are no restrictions in our articles of incorporation or bylaws that prevent us from declaring dividends. The Nevada Revised Statutes, however, do prohibit us from declaring dividends where after giving effect to the distribution of the dividend:

 

1.

we would not be able to pay our debts as they become due in the usual course of business, or;

2.

our total assets would be less than the sum of our total liabilities plus the amount that would be needed to satisfy the rights of shareholders who have preferential rights superior to those receiving the distribution.

 

We have not declared any dividends and we do not plan to declare any dividends in the foreseeable future.

 

Item 6. Selected Financial Data

 

A smaller reporting company is not required to provide the information required by this Item.

Item 7. Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations


Forward-Looking Statements

 

Certain statements, other than purely historical information, including estimates, projections, statements relating to our business plans, objectives, and expected operating results, and the assumptions upon which those statements are based, are “forward-looking statements.” These forward-looking statements generally are identified by the words “believes,” “project,” “expects,” “anticipates,” “estimates,” “intends,” “strategy,” “plan,” “may,” “will,” “would,” “will be,” “will continue,” “will likely result,” and similar expressions. Forward-looking statements are based on current expectations and assumptions that are subject to risks and uncertainties which may cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. Our ability to predict results or the actual effect of future plans or strategies is inherently uncertain. Factors which could have a material adverse affect on our operations and future prospects on a consolidated basis include, but are not limited to: changes in economic conditions, legislative/regulatory changes, availability of capital, interest rates, competition, and generally accepted accounting principles. These risks and uncertainties should also be considered in evaluating forward-looking statements and undue reliance should not be placed on such statements.

  

Results of Operations for the Years Ended August 31, 2012 and August 31, 2011, and the Period From Inception (August 17, 2010) to August 31, 2012

 

We have had no revenue for the years ended August 31, 2012 and August 31, 2011, or for the period from Inception (August 17, 2010) through August 31, 2012. Our total expenses and net loss for the year ended August 31, 2012 were $56,356, and consisted of accounting and audit fees of $19,314, a loss on foreign exchange of $4, legal fees of $11,225, office expenses of $6,337, transfer and filing fees of $5,092, impairment of a former mineral property option in the amount of $20,000, interest expense of $4,384, and gain on forgiveness of debt in the amount of $10,000.  By comparison, our total expenses and net loss for the year ended August 31, 2011 were $56,789, and consisted of audit and accounting fees of $15,328, a gain on foreign exchange of $4, legal fees of $26,034, mineral exploration costs of $4,500, office expenses of $6,380, transfer and filing fees of $3,140, and interest expense of $1,411.  Our total expenses and net loss for the period from Inception (August 17, 2010) through August 31, 2012 were $120,470.


Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

As of August 31, 2012, we had total current assets of $368, consisting entirely of cash. Our total current liabilities as of August 31, 2012 were $91,056, and consisted of a related party note payable of $86,500, accrued interest due to a related party of $3,998, and accounts payable of $558. We had a working capital deficit of $90,688 as of August 31, 2012.

 

Operating activities used $48,674 in net cash during the fiscal year ended August 31, 2012.  Operating activities used $54,858 in net cash during the fiscal year ended August 31, 2011.  From Inception (August 17, 2010) through August 31, 2012, operating activities used a total of $104,117 in net cash. Our net losses during these periods were the primary negative components of our operating cash flows. Financing activities generated cash of $47,500 during the fiscal year ended August 31, 2012,  as against $39,000 during the fiscal year ended August 31, 2011 and $114,485 from inception (August 17, 2010) through August 31, 2010.  The source of this cash was the proceeds of related party notes payable.  


On September 10, 2012, pursuant to the terms of the Agreement of Conveyance, Transfer and Assignment of Membership Interests and Assumption of Obligations with our former sole officer and director, Ruth Cruz Santos, our liability under the related party notes payable reported for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2012 was discharged.  


Also, on September 10, 2012, we received new financing in the amount of $20,000 from our current President, Robert Gardner, under the terms of a Promissory Note.  The promissory note is unsecured, bears interest at 6% per annum, and matures on September 30, 2014.




7




As discussed above, we will require financing in the amount of $3,000,000 to complete our planned acquisition of the Pony Mountain Gold property.  Also, significant additional financing may be required in order to commence the active production of precious metals on those mining claims. We intend to fund our acquisition of the Pony Mountain Gold property rights, as well as our initial operations, through debt and/or equity financing arrangements. We do not have any formal commitments or arrangements for the sales of stock or the advancement or loan of funds at this time. There can be no assurance that such additional financing will be available to us on acceptable terms, in amounts sufficient to fund our planned acquisitions and other activities, or at all.

 

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

As of August 31, 2012, there were no off balance sheet arrangements.


Going Concern

 

We have yet to achieve profitable operations, have accumulated losses of $120,470 since our inception and expect to incur further losses in the development of our business, all of which casts substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. Our ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon our ability to generate future profitable operations and/or to obtain the necessary financing from shareholders or other sources to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. Management has no formal plan in place to address this concern but considers that we will be able to obtain additional funds by equity financing and/or related party advances, however there is no assurance of additional funding being available or on acceptable terms, if at all.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

In December 2001, the SEC requested that all registrants list their most “critical accounting polices” in the Management Discussion and Analysis. The SEC indicated that a “critical accounting policy” is one which is both important to the portrayal of a company’s financial condition and results, and requires management’s most difficult, subjective or complex judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates about the effect of matters that are inherently uncertain. At this time, management does not believe that any of our accounting policies fit this definition.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company has reviewed issued accounting pronouncements and plans to adopt those that are applicable to it. The Company does not expect the adoption of any other pronouncements to have an impact on its results of operations or financial position.

Item 7A. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM


To the Board of Directors and Stockholders

Laredo Resources Corp.


We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Laredo Resources Corp. (An Exploration Stage Company) (the “Company”) as of August 31, 2012 and 2011 and the consolidated related statements of operations, stockholders’ equity (deficit) and cash flows for each of the years then ended and for the period from inception (August 17, 2010) through August 31, 2012. Laredo Resources Corp. management is responsible for these financial statements.  Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.


We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement.  The company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.  An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.


In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Laredo Resources Corp. (An Exploration Stage Company) as of August 31, 2012 and 2011 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for each of the years then ended and for the period from inception (August 17, 2010) through August 31, 2012 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.


The accompanying financial statements have been prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the financial statements, the Company has suffered losses from operations, which raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 2. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

LAREDO RESOURCES CORP.

(An Exploration Stage Company)

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

August 31, 2012 and 2011

(Stated in US Dollars)



Note 1

Nature of Operations and Ability to Continue as a Going Concern


The Company was incorporated in the state of Nevada, United States of America on August 17, 2010.  The Company is an exploration stage company and was formed for the purpose of acquiring exploration and development stage mineral properties.  The Company’s year-end is August 31.


On August 31, 2010, the Company incorporated a wholly-owned subsidiary, LRE Exploration LLC, (“LRE”) in the State of Nevada, United States of America (“USA”) for the purpose of mineral exploration in the USA.


On November 30, 2010, LRE entered into a property option agreement with Arbutus Minerals LLC. (“Arbutus”) whereby the Company was granted an option to earn up to a 100% interest in 20 mineral claims (the “ABR Claims”) located approximately 15 miles north of Elko, Nevada. (Note 4).  During the year ended August 31, 2012, the Company abandoned the property.


Effective October 30, 2012, the Company increased the number of authorized common shares of the Company from 90,000,000 to 4,500,000,000 shares per director’s resolution dated October 30, 2012.  The Company also conducted a fifty to one forward stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding common shares per director’s resolution. Following this stock split, the number of outstanding shares of the Company’s common stock increased from 3,570,000 shares to 178,500,000 shares. All share and per share information in these financial statements has been retro-actively restated for all periods presented to give effect of this stock split.


These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles applicable to a going concern, which assumes that the Company will be able to meet its obligations and continue its operations for its next fiscal year.  Realization values may be substantially different from carrying values as shown and these financial statements do not give effect to adjustments that would be necessary to the carrying values and classification of assets and liabilities should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.  The Company has yet to achieve profitable operations, has accumulated losses of $120,470 since its inception and expects to incur further losses in the development of its business, all of which casts substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.


The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate future profitable operations and/or to obtain the necessary financing from shareholders or other sources to meet its obligations and repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they become due.  Management has no formal plan in place to address this concern but considers that the Company will be able to obtain additional funds by equity financing and/or related party advances, however there is no assurance of additional funding being available or on acceptable terms, if at all.  The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of recorded assets, or the amounts of and classification of liabilities that might be necessary in the event the company cannot continue in existence.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

August 31, 2012 and 2011

(Stated in US Dollars)



Note 2

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies


The consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and are stated in US dollars.  The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of expense during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.


The financial statements have, in management’s opinion, been properly prepared within the framework of the significant accounting policies summarized below:


Principles of Consolidation


These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and LRE Exploration LLC., a wholly owned subsidiary incorporated in Nevada, USA on August 31, 2010.  All significant inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated.


Exploration Stage Company


The Company is an exploration stage company.  All losses accumulated since inception are considered part of the Company’s exploration stage activities.


Cash and cash equivalents


The Company considers all highly liquid instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents.  There were no cash equivalents at August 31, 2012.


The Company minimizes its credit risk associated with cash by periodically evaluating the credit quality of its primary financial institution. The balance at times may exceed federally insured limits. At August 31, 2012, the balance did not exceed the federally insured limit.


Mineral Property


The Company is primarily engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral properties.


Mineral property acquisition costs are capitalized in accordance with FASB ASC 930, “Extractive Activities-Mining,” when management has determined that probable future benefits consisting of a contribution to future cash inflows have been identified and adequate financial resources are available or are expected to be available as required to meet the terms of property acquisition and budgeted exploration and development expenditures.  Mineral property acquisition costs are expensed as incurred if the criteria for capitalization are not met.

Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements

August 31, 2012 and 2011

(Stated in US Dollars)



Note 2

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies - (continued)


Mineral Property - (continued)


In the event that mineral property acquisition costs are paid with Company shares, those shares are recorded at the estimated fair value at the time the shares are due in accordance with the terms of the property agreements.


Mineral property exploration costs are expensed as incurred.


When it has been determined that a mineral property can be economically developed as a result of establishing proven and probable reserves and pre-feasibility, the costs incurred to develop such property are capitalized.


Estimated future removal and site restoration costs, when determinable are provided over the life of proven reserves on a units-of-production basis.  Costs, which include production equipment removal and environmental remediation, are estimated each period by management based on current regulations, actual expenses incurred, and technology and industry standards.  Any charge is included in exploration expense or the provision for depletion and depreciation during the period and the actual restoration expenditures are charged to the accumulated provision amounts as incurred.


To date the Company has not established any proven or probable reserves on its mineral properties.


Asset Retirement Obligations


Asset retirement obligations (“ARO”) associated with the retirement of a tangible long-lived asset, are recognized as liabilities in the period in which it is incurred and becomes determinable, with an offsetting increase in the carrying amount of the associated assets. The cost of tangible long-lived assets, including the initially recognized ARO, is amortized, such that the cost of the ARO is recognized over the useful life of the assets.  The ARO is recorded at fair value, and accretion expense is recognized over time as the discounted fair value is accreted to the expected settlement value.


The fair value of the ARO is measured using expected future cash flow, discounted at the Company’s credit-adjusted risk-free interest rate.  As of August 31, 2012, the Company has determined no provision for ARO’s is required.


Impairment of Long- Lived Assets


The Company reviews and evaluates long-lived assets for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the related carrying amounts may not be recoverable.  The assets are subject to impairment consideration under FASB ASC 360-10-35-17 if events or circumstances indicate that their carrying amount might not be recoverable.  When the Company determines that an impairment analysis should be done, the analysis will be performed using the rules of FASB ASC 930-360-35, Asset Impairment, and 360- 0 through 15-5, Impairment or Disposal of Long- Lived Assets.

August 31, 2012 and 2011

(Stated in US Dollars)



Note 2

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies - (continued)


Foreign Currency Translation


The Company’s functional currency is the United States dollar as substantially all of the Company’s operations are in the USA. The Company uses the United States dollar as its reporting currency for consistency with registrants of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).


Assets and liabilities denominated in a foreign currency are translated at the exchange rate in effect at the balance sheet date and capital accounts are translated at historical rates.  Income statement accounts are translated at the average rates of exchange prevailing during the period.


Translation adjustments from the use of different exchange rates from period to period are included in the Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income account in Stockholders’ Equity, if applicable.  


Transactions undertaken in currencies other than the functional currency of the entity are translated using the exchange rate in effect as of the transaction date.  Any exchange gains and losses are included in the Statement of Operations and Comprehensive Loss.


Earnings per share  


In accordance with accounting guidance now codified as FASB ASC Topic 260, “Earnings per Share,”  basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is computed by dividing net loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period, excluding the effects of any potentially dilutive securities. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential of shares of common stock outstanding during the period including stock options or warrants, using the treasury stock method (by using the average stock price for the period to determine the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants), and convertible debt or convertible preferred stock, using the if-converted method.  Diluted EPS excludes all dilutive potential of shares of common stock if their effect is anti-dilutive.  As there are no common stock equivalents outstanding, diluted and basic loss per share are the same.


Income Taxes


The Company uses the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to temporary differences between the financial statements carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and loss carry-forwards and their respective tax bases.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled.


The effect of a change in tax rules on deferred tax assets and liabilities is recognized in operations in the year of change. A valuation allowance is recorded when it is “more likely-than-not” that a deferred tax asset will not be realized.

Note 2

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies - (continued)


Stock-based Compensation


The Company is required to record compensation expense, based on the fair value of the awards, for all awards granted after the date of the adoption.


Comprehensive Income


The Company is required to report comprehensive income, which includes net loss as well as changes in equity from non-owner sources.


Note 3

Financial Instruments


Fair value is defined as the price that would be received upon sale of an asset or paid upon transfer of a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date and in the principal or most advantageous market for that asset or liability.


The fair value should be calculated based on assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability, not on assumptions specific to the entity. In addition, the fair value of liabilities should include consideration of non-performance risk including our own credit risk.


In addition to defining fair value, the standard expands the disclosure requirements around fair value and establishes a fair value hierarchy for valuation inputs.  The hierarchy prioritizes the inputs into three levels based on the extent to which inputs used in measuring fair value are observable in the market.  Each fair value measurement is reported in one of the three levels which is determined by the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety. These levels are:


Level 1 -

inputs are based upon unadjusted quoted prices for identical instruments traded in active markets.


Level 2 -

inputs are based upon significant observable inputs other than quoted prices included in Level 1, such as quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model-based valuation techniques for which all significant assumptions are observable in the market or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.


Level 3 -

inputs are generally unobservable and typically reflect management’s estimates of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. The fair values are therefore determined using model-based techniques that include option pricing models, discounted cash flow models, and similar techniques.

Note 3

Financial Instruments - (continued)


The carrying value of the Company’s financial assets and liabilities which consist of cash, accounts payable and accrued liabilities, and notes payable in management’s opinion approximates fair value due to the short maturity of such instruments.  These financial assets and liabilities are valued using level 3 inputs, except for cash which is at level 1.  Unless otherwise noted, it is management’s opinion that the Company is not exposed to significant interest, exchange or credit risks arising from these financial instruments.

On November 30, 2010, LRE entered into a property option agreement (amended April 3, 2012) with Arbutus Minerals LLC (“Arbutus”) whereby the Company was granted an option to earn up to a 100% interest in 20 mineral claims (the “ABR Claims”) located approximately 15 miles north of Elko, Nevada.  Arbutus holds only the mineral rights to the ABR Claims as the ABR Claims are on Bureau of Land Management managed land.  Consideration for the option consists of cash payments to Arbutus totalling $90,000, and aggregate exploration expenditures of $295,000 as follows:


Payments to Arbutus

·

$10,000 upon execution of option agreement;

·

$10,000 on or before November 30, 2011 (payment extended to November 30, 2012);

·

$20,000 on or before November 30, 2012; and

·

$50,000 on or before November 30, 2013.


Exploration Expenditures

·

$15,000 in aggregate exploration expenditures prior to November 30, 2012;

·

$65,000 in aggregate exploration expenditures prior to November 30, 2013; and

·

$215,000 in aggregate exploration expenditures prior to November 30, 2014.


As at August 31, 2012, the Company had incurred $10,000 in acquisition costs and accrued an additional $10,000 in the form of option payments to Arbutus per the option agreement. When a property reaches the production stage, the related capitalized costs will be amortized, using the units of production method on the basis of periodic estimates of ore reserves, currently no property has reached the production stage. When the Company has capitalized mineral properties, these properties will be periodically assessed for impairment of value and any diminution in value.

Item 9. Changes In and Disagreements with Accountants on Accounting and Financial Disclosure

 

None.

 

Item 9A. Controls and Procedures

 

As required by Rule 13a-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, we have carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this annual report, being August 31, 2012. This evaluation was carried out under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer.

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and other procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our company’s reports filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 is accumulated and communicated to management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

Based upon that evaluation, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, we have concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were ineffective as of the end of the period covered by this annual report.

 

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934). Management has assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of August 31, 2012 based on criteria established in Internal Control-Integrated Framework issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission. As a result of this assessment, management concluded that, as of August 31, 2012, our internal control over financial reporting was not effective. Our management identified the following material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting, which are indicative of many small companies with small staff: (i) inadequate segregation of duties and effective risk assessment; and (ii) insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of both US GAAP and SEC guidelines.

 

We plan to take steps to enhance and improve the design of our internal control over financial reporting. During the period covered by this annual report on Form 10-K, we have not been able to remediate the material weaknesses identified above. To remediate such weaknesses, we hope to implement the following changes during our fiscal year ending August 31, 2012: (i) appoint additional qualified personnel to address inadequate segregation of duties and ineffective risk management; and (ii) adopt sufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting. The remediation efforts set out in (i) and (ii) are largely dependent upon our securing additional financing to cover the costs of implementing the changes required. If we are unsuccessful in securing such funds, remediation efforts may be adversely affected in a material manner.

 

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to an exemption for non-accelerated filers set forth in Section 989G of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

Robert Gardner

72

President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and Director

 

Set forth below is a brief description of the background and business experience of each of our current executive officers and directors.

 

Robert Gardner was appointed President, Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, Secretary, Treasurer, and Director on September 10, 2012.  He is the Proprietor and Principal of Gardner & Associates in Vancouver.  He is a Barrister and Solicitor in the Province of British Columbia where he was called and admitted in 1966.  He is currently President of Q-Gold Resources Ltd., a position he has held since approximately July of 2010. Formerly, he was Chairman of Viridis Energy, Inc. from approximately December 2009 until April 2011.  He also served as President, CFO and Secretary of First Star Resources, Inc. from November 2010 through approximately December 2011. He was a member of the Board and Chairman of Stealth Energy from approximately 2006 until his resignation in approximately July 2011. He was Chairman and a member of the Board of Genco Resources (now Silvermex Resources, Inc.) from approximately February 2003 until his resignation in May 2010.  During his time at Genco Resources, he also served as acting CEO from January 2009 to February 2010. He was a Director for Kootenay Gold, Inc. from June 2003 until his resignation in March 2009. He served as Chairman of Andover Resources from December 2006 until his resignation in September 2008.  He was on the Board of Chief Consolidated Mining as an U.S.-associated company to Andover from March 2008 until his resignation in 2010. He was a Director for Atlas Technology Group from August 2005 until his resignation in February 2009. He served as Chairman of Bolero Resources Corp. from February 2006 until his resignation in February 2008. He was on the Board of Directors of Getty Copper from approximately 2003 until his resignation in November 2004. He was a director of Triple Dragon Resources, Inc. from February 23, 2006 to June 4, 2007.


Mr. Gardner was called to the Bar of England and Wales in 1964 and called and admitted in British Columbia in 1966.  He is a member of the Honourable Society of the Inner Temple (London).  He graduated from Cambridge University in 1961 with a BA, in 1962 with an LLB, in 1965 with an MA, and in 1995 with an LLM.  He was made a Queens Counsel in 1989.

 

Term of Office

 

Our Directors are appointed for a one year term to hold office until the next annual general meeting of our shareholders or until removed from office in accordance with our bylaws.  Our officers are appointed by our board of directors and hold office until removed by the board.

 

Family Relationships

 

There are no family relationships between or among the directors, executive officers or persons nominated or chosen by us to become directors or executive officers.

 






12




Involvement in Certain Legal Proceedings

 

To the best of our knowledge, during the past ten years, none of the following occurred with respect to a present or former director, executive officer, or employee: (1) any bankruptcy petition filed by or against any business of which such person was a general partner or executive officer either at the time of the bankruptcy or within two years prior to that time; (2) any conviction in a criminal proceeding or being subject to a pending criminal proceeding (excluding traffic violations and other minor offenses); (3) being subject to any order, judgment or decree, not subsequently reversed, suspended, vacated, of any court of competent jurisdiction, permanently or temporarily enjoining, barring, suspending or otherwise limiting his or her involvement in any type of business, securities or banking activities; and (4) being found by a court of competent jurisdiction (in a civil action), the SEC or the Commodities Futures Trading Commission to have violated a federal or state securities or commodities law, and the judgment has not been reversed, suspended or vacated.

 

Committees of the Board


We do not currently have a compensation committee, executive committee, or stock plan committee.


Audit Committee


We do not have a separately-designated standing audit committee. The entire Board of Directors performs the functions of an audit committee, but no written charter governs the actions of the Board when performing the functions of what would generally be performed by an audit committee. The Board approves the selection of our independent accountants and meets and interacts with the independent accountants to discuss issues related to financial reporting. In addition, the Board reviews the scope and results of the audit with the independent accountants, reviews with management and the independent accountants our annual operating results, considers the adequacy of our internal accounting procedures and considers other auditing and accounting matters including fees to be paid to the independent auditor and the performance of the independent auditor. Our Board of Directors, which performs the functions of an audit committee, does not have a member who would qualify as an “audit committee financial expert” within the definition of Item 407(d)(5)(ii) of Regulation S-K. We believe that, at our current size and stage of development, the addition of a special audit committee financial expert to the Board is not necessary.


Nomination Committee


Our Board of Directors does not maintain a nominating committee. As a result, no written charter governs the director nomination process. Our size and the size of our Board, at this time, do not require a separate nominating committee.


When evaluating director nominees, our directors consider the following factors:


-

The appropriate size of our Board of Directors;

-

Our needs with respect to the particular talents and experience of our directors;

-

The knowledge, skills and experience of nominees, including experience in finance, administration or public service, in light of prevailing business conditions and the knowledge, skills and experience already possessed by other members of the Board;

-

Experience in political affairs;

-

Experience with accounting rules and practices; and

-

The desire to balance the benefit of continuity with the periodic injection of the fresh perspective provided by new Board members.


Our goal is to assemble a Board that brings together a variety of perspectives and skills derived from high quality business and professional experience. In doing so, the Board will also consider candidates with appropriate non-business backgrounds.




13




Other than the foregoing, there are no stated minimum criteria for director nominees, although the Board may also consider such other factors as it may deem are in our best interests as well as our stockholders. In addition, the Board identifies nominees by first evaluating the current members of the Board willing to continue in service. Current members of the Board with skills and experience that are relevant to our business and who are willing to continue in service are considered for re-nomination. If any member of the Board does not wish to continue in service or if the Board decides not to re-nominate a member for re-election, the Board then identifies the desired skills and experience of a new nominee in light of the criteria above. Current members of the Board are polled for suggestions as to individuals meeting the criteria described above. The Board may also engage in research to identify qualified individuals. To date, we have not engaged third parties to identify or evaluate or assist in identifying potential nominees, although we reserve the right in the future to retain a third party search firm, if necessary. The Board does not typically consider shareholder nominees because it believes that its current nomination process is sufficient to identify directors who serve our best interests.


Code of Ethics


As of August 31, 2012, we had not adopted a Code of Ethics for Financial Executives, which would include our principal executive officer, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer or controller, or persons performing similar functions.

  

Item 11. Executive Compensation

Narrative Disclosure to the Summary Compensation Table

 

We have not entered into any employment agreement or consulting agreement with our executive officers. There are no arrangements or plans in which we provide pension, retirement, or similar benefits for executive officers.

 

Although we do not currently compensate our officers, we reserve the right to provide compensation at some time in the future. Our decision to compensate officers depends on the availability of our cash resources with respect to the need for cash to further our business purposes.

As used in this table, "beneficial ownership" means the sole or shared power to vote, or to direct the voting of, a security, or the sole or shared investment power with respect to a security (i.e., the power to dispose of, or to direct the disposition of, a security). In addition, for purposes of this table, a person is deemed, as of any date, to have "beneficial ownership" of any security that such person has the right to acquire within 60 days after such date.


Item 13. Certain Relationships and Related Transactions, and Director Independence

 

Except as stated herein, none of our directors or executive officers, nor any proposed nominee for election as a director, nor any person who beneficially owns, directly or indirectly, shares carrying more than 5% of the voting rights attached to all of our outstanding shares, nor any members of the immediate family (including spouse, parents, children, siblings, and in-laws) of any of the foregoing persons has any material interest, direct or indirect, in any transaction over the last two years or in any presently proposed transaction which, in either case, has or will materially affect us.

 

1.

On September 10, 2012, we entered into an Agreement of Conveyance, Transfer and Assignment of Membership Interests and Assumption of Obligations (the “Agreement”) with our sole officer and director, Ruth Cruz Santos.  Pursuant to the Agreement, we transferred all membership interests in our operating subsidiary, LRE Exploration LLC, to Ms. Santos.  In exchange for this assignment of membership interests, Ms. Santos agreed to assume and cancel all liabilities relating to our former business of exploring certain mining claims located in Elko County, Nevada.  In addition, Ms. Santos agreed to release all liability under certain promissory notes due and owing to her.

 

2.

On September 10, 2012, we received new financing in the amount of $20,000 from our current President, Robert Gardner, under the terms of a Promissory Note.  The promissory note is unsecured, bears interest at 6% per annum, and matures on September 30, 2014.


Director Independence


We are not a “listed issuer” within the meaning of Item 407 of Regulation S-K and there are no applicable listing standards for determining the independence of our directors. Applying the definition of independence set forth in Rule 4200(a)(15) of The Nasdaq Stock Market, Inc., we do not have any independent directors.
