(Formerly Daulton Capital Corp.)

(A DEVELOPMENT STAGE COMPANY)

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

OCTOBER 31, 2012

 

 

Note 1 - Organization and nature of operations

 

ARX Gold Corporation, formerly Daulton Capital Corp., (“ARX Gold”) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada July 8, 2008. On May 22, 2012, ARX Gold, Grimsby Investments Limited (“Grimsby”), a company incorporated under the law of the British Virgin Islands on March 8, 2012, and the stockholders of Grimsby (“Grimsby Shareholders”) entered into a Share Exchange. Upon closing of the transaction contemplated under the Share Exchange, as amended, on May 22, 2012, the Grimsby Shareholders (4 entities) transferred all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Grimsby to ARX Gold in exchange for an aggregate of 4.148 billon shares of the common stock of ARX Gold and a commitment to pay royalties of $7,500,000 to two original founding stockholders of Grimsby, as amended retroactively in August 2012 for an original $150 million debt to the four original founding stockholders of Grimsby. Such exchange caused Grimsby to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of ARX Gold.  ARX Gold and Grimsby with its subsidiaries are collectively referred to as “the Company”.

 

The Share Exchange was accounted for as a reverse-merger and recapitalization since the stockholders of Grimsby obtained voting and management control of ARX Gold. Grimsby was the acquirer for financial reporting purposes and ARC Gold was the acquired company. Consequently, the assets and liabilities and the operations reflected in the historical financial statements prior to the Exchange Agreement will be those of Grimsby and was recorded at the historical cost basis of Grimsby, and the consolidated financial statements after completion of the Share Exchange included the assets and liabilities of both Grimsby and ARX Gold and the Company’s consolidated operations from the closing date of the Share Exchange.

 

On May 25, 2012, Daulton Capital Corp. changed its name to Celframe ARX Resources Corp. and on October 16, 2012, Celframe ARX Resources Corp. changes its name to ARX Gold Corporation.

 

On March 26, 2012, agents of Grimsby established ARX Springs Pte, Ltd., (“ARX Pte”), a company incorporated in Singapore, in anticipation of a future restructuring of the Company. At the time of its incorporation, ARX Pte had no operations, assets or stockholders.

 

On April 12, 2012, the one founding stockholder of ARX Springs Pty. Ltd a (“ARX Springs”), formed on November 11, 2011, and the two founding stockholders of ARX Pacific Resources Pty Ltd. (“ARX Pacific”), formed on May 28, 2010, transferred 100% of their respective ownerships in such companies to ARX Pte.

 

On May 15, 2012, in connection with a reorganization of Grimsby, 100% of the founders’ shares of ARX Pte were issued to Grimsby and Grimsby issued its founders shares to four entities. On May 22, 2012, immediately after the Share Exchange, the Company’s organizational structure of the Company is as follows:

 

 

Pursuant to certain mining rights agreements (see Note 3), ARX Pacific and ARX Springs, together referred to as the “ARX Companies”) have the rights to mine and extract gold and other materials from certain properties in Australia as described in Note 3.

NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

OCTOBER 31, 2012

 

 

NOTE 2 - Summary of significant accounting policies

 

Basis of presentation

 

Management acknowledges its responsibility for the preparation of the accompanying interim consolidated financial statements which reflect all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, considered necessary in its opinion for a fair statement of its consolidated financial position and the consolidated results of its operations for the interim period presented. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the summary of significant accounting policies and notes to financial statements included in the Company’s filing of Form 8-K/A as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements for ARX Gold Corporation have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (the “U.S.”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8-03 of Regulation S-X. Operating results for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of results that may be expected for the fiscal year as a whole.

 

As a result of the Company's focus on gold exploration, the Company is considered a development stage company as defined in ASC 915 “Development Stage Entities”. Activities during the development stage include implementation of the Company’s business plan, reorganization activities and fund raising. The Company plans on raising capital to implement its business plan and to begin development activities.

 

Going concern

 

As reflected in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, the Company had a net loss and net cash used in operations of $441,901 and $267,629, respectively, for the six months ended October 31, 2012 and a working capital deficit, a stockholders’ deficit, and a deficit accumulated during development stage of $199,504, $199,504 and $504,978, respectively, at October 31, 2012 and has no revenues. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company’s ability to raise additional capital, implement its business plan, and generate revenues. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern. The Company plans on raising capital though the sale of equity or debt instruments to commence operations.

 

Principles of consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("US GAAP") and present the consolidated financial statements of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries as of October 31, 2012. In the preparation of consolidated financial statements of the Company, intercompany transactions and balances are eliminated in consolidation.

  AUS$ 1,000   100%   Pursuant to various agreements, ARX Pacific has the right to explore, mine and extract gold and other minerals from certain properties.

 

Use of estimates

 

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America 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 revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

 

Fair value of financial instruments

 

The Company adopted the guidance of Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820 for fair value measurements which clarifies the definition of fair value, prescribes methods for measuring fair value, and establishes a fair value hierarchy to classify the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

 

*Level 1-Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities available at the measurement date.
*Level 2-Inputs are unadjusted quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other then quoted prices that are observable, and inputs derived from or corroborated by observable market data.
*Level 3-Inputs are unobservable inputs which reflect the reporting entity’s own assumptions on what assumptions the market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability based on the best available information.

 

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for cash, due from related parties, and other current assets, accounts payable, and accrued expenses and due to related parties approximate their fair market value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments. The Company did not have any non-financial assets or liabilities that are measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of October 31, 2012 and April 30, 2012.

NOTE 2 - Summary of significant accounting policies (continued)

 

Fair value of financial instruments (continued)

 

ASC 825-10 “Financial Instruments, allows entities to voluntarily choose to measure certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value (fair value option). The fair value option may be elected on an instrument-by-instrument basis and is irrevocable, unless a new election date occurs. If the fair value option is elected for an instrument, unrealized gains and losses for that instrument should be reported in earnings at each subsequent reporting date. The Company did not elect to apply the fair value option to any outstanding instruments.

 

Cash and cash equivalents

 

For purposes of the consolidated statements of cash flows, the Company considers all highly liquid instruments purchased with a maturity of three months or less and money market accounts to be cash equivalents.

 

Mining property acquisition and exploration costs

 

The Company follows ASC 930 “Extraction Activities – Mining” in accounting for mining costs. Costs of lease, acquisition, exploration, carrying and retaining unproven mineral lease properties are expensed as incurred. The Company has chosen to expense all mineral acquisition and exploration costs as incurred given that it is still in the development stage. Once the Company has identified proven and probable reserves in its investigation of its properties and upon development of a plan for operating a mine, it would capitalize future costs until production is established. When a property reaches the production stage, the related capitalized costs will be depleted, using the units-of-production method over the estimated life of the probable-proven reserves. When the Company has capitalized mineral properties, these properties will be periodically assessed for impairment of value and any diminution in value. To date, the Company has not established the commercial feasibility of any exploration prospects; therefore, all costs are being expensed. During the six months ended October 31, 2012 and 2011, the Company did not incur any exploration costs.

 

Environmental Matters

 

Our operations are subject to evolving government environmental laws and regulations related to the discharge of materials into the environment. Our process is not expected to produce harmful levels of emissions or waste by-products.  However, these laws and regulations would require us to remove or mitigate the environmental effects of the disposal or release of substances at our site should they occur.  Compliance with such laws and regulations can be costly.  Additionally, governmental authorities may enforce the laws and regulations with a variety of civil and criminal enforcement measures, including monetary penalties and remediation requirements.  We are not aware of any area of non-compliance with governmental environmental laws and regulations as of the date of this report.

 

Asset retirement obligations

 

The Company follows the provisions of ASC 410, Asset Retirement and Environmental Obligations, which establishes standards for the initial measurement and subsequent accounting for obligations associated with the sale, abandonment or other disposal of long-lived tangible assets arising from the acquisition, construction or development and for normal operations of such assets. The Company did not have any asset retirement obligation at October 31, 2012.

 

Impairment of long-lived assets

 

In accordance with ASC Topic 360, the Company reviews long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets may not be fully recoverable, or at least annually. The Company recognizes an impairment loss when the sum of expected undiscounted future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of the asset. The amount of impairment is measured as the difference between the asset’s estimated fair value and its book value. The Company did not record any impairment charges for the six months ended October 31, 2012 and 2011.

Advertising

 

Advertising is expensed as incurred and is included in selling expenses on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations. The Company did not incur advertising expenses during the six months ended October 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

 

Income taxes

 

The Company is governed by the income tax laws of the United States, Australia, the Republic of Singapore, and the British Virgin Islands. The Company accounts for income tax using the liability method prescribed by ASC 740, “Income Taxes”. Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are determined based on the difference between the financial reporting and tax bases of assets and liabilities using enacted tax rates that will be in effect in the year in which the differences are expected to reverse. The Company records a valuation allowance to offset deferred tax assets if based on the weight of available evidence, it is more-likely-than-not that some portion, or all, of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The effect on deferred taxes of a change in tax rates is recognized as income or loss in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

The Company applied the provisions of ASC 740-10-50, “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes”, which provides clarification related to the process associated with accounting for uncertain tax positions recognized in our financial statements. Audit periods remain open for review until the statute of limitations has passed. The completion of review or the expiration of the statute of limitations for a given audit period could result in an adjustment to the Company’s liability for income taxes. Any such adjustment could be material to the Company’s results of operations for any given quarterly or annual period based, in part, upon the results of operations for the given period. As of October 31, 2012 and April 30, 2012, the Company had no uncertain tax positions, and will continue to evaluate for uncertain positions in the future.

 

Foreign currency translation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements are presented in U.S. dollars (“USD”). The reporting currency of the Company is the USD. The functional currency of the ARX Companies is the Australian dollar and the functional currency of ARX Pte is the Singapore dollar. Results of operations and cash flows are translated at average exchange rates during the period, assets and liabilities are translated at the spot exchange rate at the end of the period, and equity is translated at historical exchange rates. As a result, amounts relating to assets and liabilities reported on the statements of cash flows may not necessarily agree with the changes in the corresponding balances on the balance sheets.  Translation adjustments resulting from the process of translating the local currency financial statements into U.S. dollars are included in determining comprehensive income.  The foreign currency translation adjustment included in comprehensive loss for the six months ended October 31, 2012 and 2011 amounted to $7,843 and $10, respectively.

 

Assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated into the functional currency at the exchange rates prevailing at the balance sheet date with any transaction gains and losses that arise from exchange rate fluctuations on transactions denominated in a currency other than the functional currency included in the results of operations as incurred.

 

As of October 31, 2012 and April 30, 2012 and for the six months ended October 31, 2012 and 2011, the exchange rates used to translate amounts in Australian dollars and Singapore dollars into USD for the purposes of preparing the consolidated financial statements were as follows:

Stock-based compensation

 

Stock-based compensation is accounted for based on the requirements of the Share-Based Payment Topic of ASC 718 which requires recognition in the consolidated financial statements of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments over the period the employee or director is required to perform the services in exchange for the award (presumptively, the vesting period). The ASC also requires measurement of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award based on the grant-date fair value of the award.

 

Pursuant to ASC Topic 505-50, for share-based payments to consultants and other third-parties, compensation expense is determined at the “measurement date.” The expense is recognized over the vesting period of the award. Until the measurement date is reached, the total amount of compensation expense remains uncertain. The Company initially records compensation expense based on the fair value of the award at the reporting date.

 

Net loss per share of common stock

 

Basic net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss available to common stockholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted net loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock, common stock equivalents and potentially dilutive securities outstanding during each period. As of October 31, 2012 and 2011 and April 30, 2012, the Company did not have any potentially dilutive common shares.

 

Accumulated other comprehensive income

 

Comprehensive income is comprised of net income and all changes to stockholders' equity, except those due to investments by stockholders, changes in paid-in capital and distributions to stockholders. For the Company, comprehensive loss for the six months ended October 31, 2012 and 2011 included net loss and unrealized gains (losses) from foreign currency translation adjustments.

 

Related party transactions

 

A related party is generally defined as (i) any person that holds 10% or more of the Company's securities including such person's immediate families, (ii) the Company's management, (iii) someone that directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by or is under common control with the Company, or (iv) anyone who can significantly influence the financial and operating decisions of the Company. A transaction is considered to be a related party transaction when there is a transfer of resources or obligations between related parties.

NOTE 3 – MINING RIGHTS

 

ARX Springs Project

 

On March 6, 2012 and as amended on March 31, 2012, the Company’s subsidiaries, ARX Springs and ARX Pacific entered into Stage Tribute Agreements (the “Stage Tribute Agreements”) with Riverstone Resources Pty Ltd. (“Riverstone”). The Stage Tribute Agreements were made pursuant to the terms of an agreement dated February 27, 2012 between Riverstone and BRI Microfine Pty Ltd., a related party (See Note 4) (the “Riverstone Master Agreement”). The Stage Tribute Agreements grant the exclusive right to the ARX Companies to explore, mine and extract gold and other extracted products on the ARX Springs Project properties located in the Wide Bay Burnett Region in central Queensland, Australia. The ARX Springs Project overall covers approximately 16 km² of surface area and the mining project is part of a larger area for which Riverstone owns and operates an extractive industries business.

 

The two ARX Companies will jointly operate at the ARX Springs site, and Phase 1 of the mining processing at ARX Springs under the respective Stage Tribute Agreements will mine a surface area of 600 ha. Under the terms of the Riverstone Master Agreement between BRI, a related party and Riverstone, phase 2 of the mining process at the ARX Springs Project may commence at any time and does not require work on phase 1 to be completed. ARX Companies must pay to Riverstone production royalty of 19% of the value of production extracted and processed from the first 100 ha surface area of the ARX Springs Project treated and 15% of the value of production extracted and processed from the surface area of the project which exceeds 100ha.

 

During the term of the Stage Tribute Agreements, Riverstone solely or jointly with one or both of the ARX Companies (and either of the ARX Companies solely or jointly with Riverstone) may apply for extensions and additional mining licenses from the Queensland Mines and Resources Department. During all terms of the mining license and any additional mining licenses the holders of all ARX Springs mining license and additional mining licenses shall be obliged to comply with the regulations applicable and to meet the obligations imposed by the Mineral Resource Act of 1989 (Queensland). If the mining license or additional mining licenses, at any time are cancelled, the ARX Companies may lose the right to mine and process at the ARX Springs Project. Riverstone may terminate the Stage Tribute Agreements on prior notice to the ARX Companies if ARX Companies are in breach of the agreements but termination cannot be affected without the ARX Companies being first permitted to remedy any alleged breach and any disputes between Riverstone and the ARX Companies will be subject to mediation and if mediation is unsuccessful will be submitted to arbitration. Riverstone may terminate the Stage Tribute Agreements by giving three month’s notice by March 5, 2037, with provision to extend dates if required, or after the resources have been fully mined and processed, whichever occurs first. The initial ten hectare surface area of the ARX Springs Project must be mined and processed by March 5, 2025.

NOTE 3 – MINING RIGHTS (continued)

 

The ARX Companies are obliged to take out business liability and employee insurances which shall be effected when mining processing commences.

 

Prior to undertaking any ground disturbing work on the ARX Springs Project, the ARX Companies must, in the ordinary course of the mining business obtain the approval of the Queensland Department of Mines on a proposed work plan. The agreements with Riverstone require consultation with Riverstone on the form of any proposed work plan to ensure it is not likely to interfere with the activities of Riverstone. The ARX companies solely or jointly with Riverstone may proceed to obtain all necessary regulatory approvals for any proposed work plan according to standard industry mining practice in the State of Queensland as governed by the Mineral Resource Act 1989.

 

The ARX Companies will be responsible for all rehabilitation works on the properties, as required by the Queensland Mines and Resources Department, and any other governmental or other authorities in relation to exploration or mining activities carried out by the ARX Companies. Prior to the commencement of work the Queensland Mines and Resources Department will assess a value of a rehabilitation bond and the value of the rehabilitation bond will have to be paid by the ARX companies. There is no reason known to Riverstone or ARX Companies why the bond will not be assessed according to current Queensland Mines and Resources Department guidelines but the actual amount of the rehabilitation bond is not yet known.

 

During the term of the Stage Tribute Agreements, Riverstone shall take all action necessary to keep the ARX Project in good standing. Riverstone will be obliged to protect the land areas and the Mining License and Riverstone shall make any required payments to the Department of Mines and Resources or such other department of the government of Queensland Australia responsible for the administration of the Mineral Resource Act of 1989 (Queensland) in order to maintain its rights to explore and, if warranted, to develop its property. If Riverstone fails to meet these obligations, the Company may lose the right to explore for gold and other extracted products on the property. In general terms the Arx Companies are entitled under their agreements to act on their own behalf to protect the land and site and the mining leases and to pay royalties to Queensland Mines Department if they decide to do so by potential threats or risks to the project or rights.

Item 2.     Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

 

The following plan of operation provides information which management believes is relevant to an assessment and understanding of our results of operations and financial condition. The discussion should be read along with our financial statements and notes thereto. This section includes a number of forward-looking statements that reflect our current views with respect to future events and financial performance. Forward-looking statements are often identified by words like believe, expect, estimate, anticipate, intend, project and similar expressions, or words which, by their nature, refer to future events. You should not place undue certainty on these forward-looking statements. These forward-looking statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from our predictions.

 

Plan of Operations

 

We have commenced limited operations and we will require outside capital to implement our business model.

 

We were incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada July 8, 2008 as formerly Daulton Capital Corp. On May 25, 2012, Daulton Capital Corp. changed its name to Celframe ARX Resources Corp. and on October 16, 2012, Celframe ARX Resources Corp. changes its name to ARX Gold Corporation (“ARX Gold”).

 

On May 22, 2012, ARX Gold, Grimsby Investments Limited (“Grimsby”), a company incorporated under the law of the British Virgin Islands on March 8, 2012, and the stockholders of Grimsby (“Grimsby Shareholders”) entered into a Share Exchange. Upon closing of the transaction contemplated under the Share Exchange, as amended, on May 22, 2012, the Grimsby Shareholders (4 entities) transferred all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Grimsby to ARC Gold in exchange for an aggregate of 4.148 billon shares of the common stock of ARX Gold and a commitment to pay royalties of $7,500,000 to two original founding stockholders of Grimsby, as amended retroactively in August 2012 for an original $150 million to the four original founding stockholders of Grimsby. Such exchange caused Grimsby to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of ARX Gold.  ARX Gold and Grimsby with its subsidiaries are collectively referred to as “the Company”.

 

The Share Exchange was accounted for as a reverse-merger and recapitalization since the stockholders of Grimsby obtained voting and management control of ARX Gold. Grimsby was the acquirer for financial reporting purposes and ARC Gold was the acquired company. Consequently, the assets and liabilities and the operations reflected in the historical financial statements prior to the Exchange Agreement will be those of Grimsby and was recorded at the historical cost basis of Grimsby, and the consolidated financial statements after completion of the Share Exchange included the assets and liabilities of both Grimsby and ARX Gold and the Company’s consolidated operations from the closing date of the Share Exchange.

 

On March 26, 2012, agents of Grimsby established ARX Springs Pte, Ltd., (“ARX Pte”), a company incorporated in Singapore, in anticipation of a future restructuring of the Company. At the time of its incorporation, ARX Pte had no operations, assets or stockholders.

 

On April 12, 2012, the one founding stockholder of ARX Springs Pty. Ltd a (“ARX Springs”), formed on November 11, 2011, and the two founding stockholders of ARX Pacific Resources Pty Ltd. (“ARX Pacific”), formed on May 28, 2010, transferred 100% of their respective ownerships in such companies to ARX Pte.

 

On May 15, 2012, in connection with a reorganization of Grimsby, 100% of the founders’ shares of ARX Pte were issued to Grimsby and Grimsby issued its founders shares to four entities.

On May 22, 2012, immediately after the Share Exchange, our organizational structure is as follows:

 

 

 

 

Pursuant to certain mining rights agreements, ARX Pacific and ARX Springs, together referred to as the “ARX Companies”) have the rights to mine and extract gold and other materials from certain properties in Australia.

 

ARX Springs Project

 

On March 6, 2012 and as amended on March 31, 2012, our subsidiaries, ARX Springs and ARX Pacific entered into Stage Tribute Agreements (the “Stage Tribute Agreements”) with Riverstone Resources Pty Ltd. (“Riverstone”). The Stage Tribute Agreements were made pursuant to the terms of an agreement dated February 27, 2012 between Riverstone and BRI Microfine Pty Ltd., a related party (See Note 4) (the “Riverstone Master Agreement”). The Stage Tribute Agreements grant the exclusive right to the ARX Companies to explore, mine and extract gold and other extracted products on the ARX Springs Project properties located in the Wide Bay Burnett Region in central Queensland, Australia. The ARX Springs Project overall covers approximately 16 km² of surface area and the mining project is part of a larger area for which Riverstone owns and operates an extractive industries business.

 

The two ARX Companies will jointly operate at the ARX Springs site, and Phase 1 of the mining processing at ARX Springs under the respective Stage Tribute Agreements will mine a surface area of 600 ha. Under the terms of the Riverstone Master Agreement between BRI, a related party and Riverstone, phase 2 of the mining process at the ARX Springs Project may commence at any time and does not require work on phase 1 to be completed. ARX Companies must pay to Riverstone production royalty of 19% of the value of production extracted and processed from the first 100 ha surface area of the ARX Springs Project treated and 15% of the value of production extracted and processed from the surface area of the project which exceeds 100 ha.

 

Limited Operating History

 

We have generated a limited financial history and have not previously demonstrated that we will be able to expand our business. Our business is subject to risks inherent in growing an enterprise, including limited capital resources and possible rejection of our business model and/or sales methods.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

While our significant accounting policies are more fully described in Note 2 to our financial statements for the six months ended October 31, 2012, we believe that the following accounting policies are the most critical to aid you in fully understanding and evaluating this management discussion and analysis.

 

 

Our consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. We continually evaluate our estimates, including those related to the accounting for and recovery of long-lived assets including mining rights, income taxes, and the valuation of equity transactions. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Any future changes to these estimates and assumptions could cause a material change to our reported amounts of revenues, expenses, assets and liabilities. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We believe the following critical accounting policies affect our more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements.

 

Mining property acquisition and exploration costs

 

We follow ASC 930 “Extraction Activities – Mining” in accounting for mining costs. Costs of lease, acquisition, exploration, carrying and retaining unproven mineral lease properties are expensed as incurred. We have chosen to expense all mineral acquisition and exploration costs as incurred given that it is still in the development stage. Once we have identified proven and probable reserves in our investigation of our properties and upon development of a plan for operating a mine, we will capitalize future costs until production is established. When a property reaches the production stage, the related capitalized costs will be depleted, using the units-of-production method over the estimated life of the probable-proven reserves. When we have capitalized mineral properties, these properties will be periodically assessed for impairment of value and any diminution in value. To date, we have not established the commercial feasibility of any exploration prospects; therefore, all costs are being expensed.

 

Environmental Matters

 

Our operations are subject to evolving government environmental laws and regulations related to the discharge of materials into the environment. Our process is not expected to produce harmful levels of emissions or waste by-products.  However, these laws and regulations would require us to remove or mitigate the environmental effects of the disposal or release of substances at our site should they occur.  Compliance with such laws and regulations can be costly.  Additionally, governmental authorities may enforce the laws and regulations with a variety of civil and criminal enforcement measures, including monetary penalties and remediation requirements.  We are not aware of any area of non-compliance with governmental environmental laws and regulations as of the date of this report.

 

Asset retirement obligations

 

We follow the provisions of ASC 410, Asset Retirement and Environmental Obligations, which establishes standards for the initial measurement and subsequent accounting for obligations associated with the sale, abandonment or other disposal of long-lived tangible assets arising from the acquisition, construction or development and for normal operations of such assets.

 

Impairment of long-lived assets

 

In accordance with ASC Topic 360, we review long-lived assets for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the assets may not be fully recoverable, or at least annually. We recognize an impairment loss when the sum of expected undiscounted future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of the asset. The amount of impairment is measured as the difference between the asset’s estimated fair value and its book value.

Foreign currency translation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements are presented in U.S. dollars (“USD”). The reporting currency of the Company is the USD. The functional currency of the ARX Companies is the Australian dollar and the functional currency of ARX Pte is the Singapore dollar. Results of operations and cash flows are translated at average exchange rates during the period, assets and liabilities are translated at the spot exchange rate at the end of the period, and equity is translated at historical exchange rates. As a result, amounts relating to assets and liabilities reported on the statements of cash flows may not necessarily agree with the changes in the corresponding balances on the balance sheets.  Translation adjustments resulting from the process of translating the local currency financial statements into U.S. dollars are included in determining comprehensive income.  

 

Assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated into the functional currency at the exchange rates prevailing at the balance sheet date with any transaction gains and losses that arise from exchange rate fluctuations on transactions denominated in a currency other than the functional currency are included in the results of operations as incurred.

 

Stock-based compensation

 

We account for stock-based instruments issued to employees in accordance with ASC Topic 718. ASC Topic 718 requires companies to recognize in the statement of operations the grant-date fair value of stock options and other equity based compensation issued to employees. We account for non-employee share-based awards in accordance with ASC Topic 505-50.

 

Recent accounting pronouncements

 

Accounting standards that have been issued or proposed by FASB that do not require adoption until a future date are not expected to have a material impact on the financial statements upon adoption.

 

Results of Operations

 

For the Three and Six Months Ended October 31, 2012 and 2011

 

Revenues

 

Since inception, we had $0 in revenue.

 

Operating Expenses

 

For the three and six months ended October 31, 2012 and 2011, operating expenses consisted of the following:

 

   Three Months Ended
October 31,
   Six Months Ended
October 31,
 
   2012   2011   2012   2011 
Professional fees  $137,949   $   $244,012   $

*           For the three and six months ended October 31, 2012, professional fees were $137,949 and $244,012, respectively.  During the six months ended October 31, 2012, we incurred business development and consulting fees of $44,704 related to the preparation of an exploration report on the ARX Springs Project. Additionally, we incurred $100,000 ($60,000 and $100,000 during the three and six month ended October 31, 2012), respectively in connection with due diligence and capital raising activities, investor relations fees of $53,450 and accounting and legal fees of $45,858. We did not incur professional fees during the six months ended October 31, 2011. We expect professional fees to increase as we incur significant costs associated with our public company reporting requirements, costs associated with newly applicable corporate governance requirements, and other rules implemented by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
*           For the three and six months ended October 31, 2012, general and administrative expenses, which included bank service charges and other office related expenses, increased by $581 and $5,980 as compared to the three and six months ended October 31, 2011, respectively.  We expect general and administrative expenses to increase as we increase our operations.

 

Net Loss

 

As a result of the factors described above, our net loss for the six months ended October 31, 2012 and 2011 was $441,901 and $63, or a net loss per common share of $0.00 and $0.00 (basic and diluted), respectively. Our net loss for the three months ended October 31, 2012 and 2011 was $333,407 and $31, or a net loss per common share of $0.00 and $0.00 (basic and diluted), respectively

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Liquidity is the ability of a company to generate funds to support its current and future operations, satisfy its obligations, and otherwise operate on an ongoing basis. To date, we have funded our operations through the sale of our common stock. Our primary uses of cash have been for compensation, and professional fees. All funds received have been expended in the furtherance of growing the business and establishing brand portfolios. The following trends are reasonably likely to result in a material decrease in our liquidity over the near to long term:

 

·An substantial increase in working capital requirements to finance our mining operations,
·Addition of administrative and professional personnel as the business grows,
·The cost of being a public company, and
·Capital expenditures on excavation, mining and other equipment
·Payment of royalties upon commencement of production.

 

At October 31, 2012, we had a cash balance of $22,936. Since inception we have funded our operations as follows:

 

During the six months ended October 31, 2012, we borrowed funds from a shareholder amounting to $73,600 to fund our operating expenses, pay our obligations, and for working capital purposes.
In September 2012, we issued 5,000,000 shares of common stock for proceeds of $225,000.

 

We currently have no material commitments for capital expenditures, however, in order to commence operations, we must raise funds through an equity or debt financing. We will need to raise additional funds, particularly if we are unable to generate positive cash flow as a result of our operations.   We estimate that based on current plans and assumptions, that our available cash will not be sufficient to satisfy our cash requirements under our present operating expectations, without further financing, for up to 12 months. Other than working capital and funds received from a shareholder and related parties, we presently have no other alternative source of working capital. We will use these funds to fund our operating expenses, pay our obligations, grow our company, and to begin or exploration and mining operation on the ARX Springs Project. We may not have sufficient working capital to fund the expansion of our operations and to provide working capital necessary for our ongoing operations and obligations and we will need to raise significant additional capital. We do not anticipate we will be profitable in fiscal 2013.  Therefore our future operations may be dependent on our ability to secure additional financing.  Financing transactions may include the issuance of equity or debt securities, obtaining credit facilities, or other financing mechanisms. However, the trading price of our common stock and a downturn in the U.S. equity and debt markets could make it more difficult to obtain financing through the issuance of equity or debt securities. Even if we are able to raise the funds required, it is possible that we could incur unexpected costs and expenses, fail to collect amounts owed to us, or experience unexpected cash requirements that would force us to seek alternative financing. Furthermore, if we issue additional equity or debt securities, stockholders may experience additional dilution or the new equity securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing holders of our common stock. The inability to obtain additional capital may restrict our ability to grow and may reduce our ability to continue to conduct business operations. If we are unable to obtain additional financing, we will be required to further curtail our marketing and development plans and possibly cease our operations.

We anticipate that depending on market conditions and our plan of operations, we may incur operating losses in the foreseeable future. Therefore, our auditors have raised substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern in their audit opinion for the year ended April 30, 2012.

 

Our liquidity may be negatively impacted by the significant costs associated with our public company reporting requirements, costs associated with newly applicable corporate governance requirements, including requirements under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 and other rules implemented by the Securities and Exchange Commission. We expect all of these applicable rules and regulations to significantly increase our legal and financial compliance costs and to make some activities more time consuming and costly.

 

Operating activities

 

For the six months ended October 31, 2012 and 2011, net cash flows (used in) provided by operating activities amounted to $(267,629) and $37, respectively. We expect cash used in operations to increase in future periods as we implement our business plan.

 

Financing activities

 

For the six months ended October 31, 2012 and 2011, net cash flows provided by financing activities was $298,600 and $0, respectively. During the six months ended October 31, 2012, we received net proceeds from advances from a shareholder of $73,600 and proceeds from the sale of common stock of $225,000.

 

Contractual Obligations

 

We have certain fixed contractual obligations and commitments that include future estimated payments. Changes in our business needs, cancellation provisions, changing interest rates, and other factors may result in actual payments differing from the estimates. We cannot provide certainty regarding the timing and amounts of payments. We have presented below a summary of the most significant assumptions used in our determination of amounts presented in the tables, in order to assist in the review of this information within the context of our financial position, results of operations, and cash flows.

 

The following tables summarize our contractual obligations as of October 31, 2012 and the effect these obligations are expected to have on our liquidity and cash flows in future periods.

 

   Payments due by period 
Contractual obligations  Total   Less than
1 year
   1-3 Years   3-5 Years   5+ Years 
Royalties payable – related parties  $7,500,000   $   $   $   $7,500,000
