STRATEGIC AMERICAN OIL CORPORATION
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)

Note 1 - Basis of presentation
 
The unaudited consolidated financial statements of Strategic American Oil Corporation (“Strategic”, the “Company”, “we”, “us”, “our”) have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”), and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto contained in our Annual Report filed with the SEC on Form 10-K for the year ended July 31, 2011. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of financial position and the results of operations for the interim periods presented have been reflected herein.  The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. Notes to the financial statements which would substantially duplicate the disclosures contained in the audited financial statements for the most recent fiscal year ended July 31, 2011, as reported in the Form 10-K, have been omitted.

Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Strategic and our wholly owned subsidiaries, Penasco Petroleum Corporation (“Penasco”), SPE Navigation I, LLC (“SPE”) and Galveston Bay Energy, LLC (“GBE”). All significant intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Reclassifications

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform with the current presentation.

Available for sale securities

We invest in marketable equity securities which are classified as available for sale. Available-for-sale securities are marked to market based on the fair values of the securities determined in accordance with ASC Section 820 (Fair Value Measurement), with the unrealized gains and losses, net of tax, reported as a component of Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss).

Restricted cash

Restricted cash consists of certificate of deposits that have been posted as collateral supporting a reclamation bond guaranteeing remediation of our oil and gas properties in Texas. As of January 31, 2012 and July 31, 2011, respectively, restricted cash totaled $6,650,000 and $6,716,850. During the period ended January 31, 2012, the bond requirement reduced and accordingly, $66,850 of restricted cash was released to us.  The paying bank deducted $11,904 of outstanding interest payable and we received a net release of $54,946.

Advances

Advances consist of prepayments received from working interest partners pertaining to their share of the costs of drilling oil and gas wells.  Partners are billed in advance for the estimated cost to drill a well and as the work proceeds, the prepayment is applied against their share of the actual drilling cost.

Earnings per share

Basic earnings per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of common and potential common shares outstanding during the period. There were no potential common shares outstanding during the three and six months ended January 31, 2012 and 2011 and, therefore, basic and diluted net income per common share are the same.

Comprehensive Income

Comprehensive income consists of net income (loss) and other gains and losses affecting stockholders’ equity that, under accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, are excluded from net income (loss). Unrealized loss on available for sale securities, net of taxes, of $13,434 is included in Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss).

Recently issued or adopted accounting pronouncements

Recently issued or adopted accounting pronouncements are not expected to have, or did not have, a material impact on our financial position or results from operations.
 
 
Note 2 - Acquisitions

Galveston Bay Energy, LLC

On February 15, 2011 we closed on the acquisition of a private Texas oil and gas company named Galveston Bay Energy, LLC (“GBE”) which owns working interests in and operates producing oil and natural gas properties and its related facilities in four fields located in Galveston Bay, Texas.   Immediately following our acquisition of GBE, we sold 15% of our own aggregate working interest in the Galveston Bay fields for $1,400,000 in cash to SPE Navigation 1, LLC (“SPE”), a company controlled by Michael Watts, who is the father-in-law of Jeremy Driver, a Director and our Chief Executive Officer.  Our agreement with SPE provided that SPE could acquire an additional 10% working interest in the properties for $1,150,000 paid within 90 days of the acquisition.  Effective May 1, 2011, SPE acquired an additional 10% of our aggregate working interest in the Galveston Bay fields for an additional $1,150,000 pursuant to our agreement.

During the six months ended January 31, 2012, we determined that we could estimate a range of potential loss associated with an environmental liability at one of the properties we acquired when we acquired GBE (See Note 11 – Commitments and Contingencies).  We adjusted the purchase price allocation for the purchase by increasing accounts payable acquired and oil and gas properties acquired by the amount that we recognized, $112,500 ($37,500 of the cost was recognized with the acquisition of SPE).  The adjustment did not change the identifiable net assets acquired.

SPE Navigation I, LLC

On September 23, 2011, Strategic acquired SPE, which owned 25% of the working interest in the oil and gas properties originally owned by Galveston Bay Energy, LLC and 1,000,000 shares of Hyperdynamics Corporation, a public company traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE:HDY). The total purchase price consisted of 95,000,000 shares of Strategic’s common stock. We acquired 100% of the membership interest in SPE and thus SPE is our wholly owned subsidiary.

As of the acquisition date, the working interests previously owned by SPE were conveyed to GBE. Thus, all oil and gas revenues after the SPE acquisition were attributed to GBE.  Our consolidated statements include the results of the 100% acquired working interest.

The transaction was a related party transaction because SPE was owned by companies controlled by our CEO, his brother-in-law, and his sister-in-law, and SPE was managed by our CEO’s father-in-law. The purchase price was calculated as $9,500,000, based on the quoted market price of our stock on the date of the acquisition. The assets and liabilities were recorded at SPE’s carrying value on the date of the acquisition and the excess purchase price over the net assets acquired was $4,367,750, which was recorded as compensation expense because this was a related party transaction.  The transaction is intended to be structured, for tax purposes, as a tax-free merger, and as such, Strategic would assume a carry-over basis in SPE’s assets. Consequently, a deferred tax liability was established.

The following table summarizes the preliminary allocation of the purchase price to the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the acquisition date:

Recognized Amount of Identifiable Assets Acquired and Liabilities Assumed

Available for sale securities (1)
 
$
3,900,000
 
Oil and Gas Property, accounted for using the full cost basis of accounting Evaluated property (2)

Deferred tax liability (1)

)
Asset retirement obligations (2)
 
 
(1,493,977
)
Total Identifiable Net Assets
 
$
5,132,250
 

 
(1)
The Hyperdynamics common stock is valued, using the closing market price on the acquisition date, at $3.90 per share.  SPE management believes its tax basis in Hyperdynamics common stock is $0.135 per share.  Deferred taxes, therefore, are computed on the difference between the tax basis and the book basis per share at the corporate tax rate of 35%.  If the carry-over basis is not available to Strategic, there would be no book tax difference and no deferred taxes associated with the acquisition.  If that occurs, the identifiable net assets would be $6,450,000 and there would be no deferred tax liability acquired.
 
(2)
Oil and gas properties include the asset retirement obligation measured on the effective date of the transaction at $1,493,977 and $2,550,000, which was the cash price that SPE paid to obtain its 25% working interest in the oil and gas properties and represents the fair value of the properties.
 
 
Supplemental pro forma information

The unaudited pro forma results presented below for the three and six months ended January 31, 2012 and 2011 have been prepared to give effect to the purchases described above as if they had been consummated on August 1, 2009.  The unaudited pro forma results do not purport to represent what our results of operations actually would have been if the acquisitions had been completed on such date or to project our results of operations for any future date or period.

We acquired securities with a market value of $3,900,000 in conjunction with our acquisition of SPE. (See Note 2 – Acquisitions) During the six months ended January 31, 2012, we received cash proceeds of $3,943,168 from sales of securities with a cost basis of $3,510,000; thus, we had a realized gain on sale of available for sale securities of $433,168.  During the six months ended January 31, 2012, we purchased securities at a market price of $702,958. We had no reclassifications from accumulated other comprehensive income to net income during the period. Available for sale securities are re-measured at fair value at every reporting date.  (See Note 8 – Fair Value)

Evaluated property

Significant additions to oil and gas properties during the six months ended January 31, 2012 include:
 
 
The acquisition of an aggregate of approximately 25% working interest in our properties in Galveston Bay as part of our acquisition of SPE, as discussed in Note 2 – Acquisitions, for $4,081,477, which includes asset retirement obligations assumed of $1,493,977;
 
Adjustment of $112,500 to the purchase price of GBE to reflect recognition of an estimate of the cost of soil remediation required to be completed at one of GBE’s facilities.  The remediation liability existed as of the date of acquisition;
 
Land acquisition costs of $13,992;
 
Exploration costs, consisting primarily of geological and geophysical costs, of $87,165; and
 
Development costs of $221,864 which consists primarily of $67,477 expended on a recompletion of one of our Welder wells onshore in South Texas and $153,885 expended on a new drill to access proved undeveloped reserves offshore in Galveston Bay.
 
 
In September 2011, the operator in our Markham City, Illinois project area commenced drilling of three wells, which were completed during the six months ended January 31, 2012. We are currently producing oil in the project area.  As of January 31, 2012, the operator had expended approximately $1,061,000 towards the Earnings Threshold.  In accordance with our farmout agreement, we will be required to contribute our 10% working interest share toward development of the area after the Earnings Threshold, $1,350,000, has been met.  We are currently responsible for our 10% working interest pertaining to routine operational expenses for completed wells.  In February 2012, the operator commenced a pilot water flood project to re-pressurize the reservoir and enhance recovery of oil from the area.

In January 2012, we sold half of our working interest in the development well in Galveston Bay to several parties who assumed their share of costs and expenses.  After the sale, we owned a 25% interest in the well.   In January 2012, we sold our 100% working interest in an onshore well.  The buyer assumed the asset retirement obligation for the well, $32,772.  We received no cash proceeds in conjunction with either sale. The assumed asset retirement obligation was the only consideration we received for these transactions.  In accordance with full cost rules, we recognized no gain or loss on the sales.

Unevaluated property

In September 2011, we purchased a non-operated working interest in mineral leases covering 460 acres onshore in Duval County, Texas.  Under the agreement, the operator commenced drilling a well, the Palacios #1, during November 2011.  Our working interest in the lease area is 6.70732% to the casing point of the first well drilled and 5.5% after the casing point of the initial well and for subsequent operations in the lease area.  Our net revenue interest in the prospect is 4.125%.   The operator commenced drilling of an exploratory well, Palacios #1, within the prospect area in November 2011. We have expended $37,120 on this project as of January 31, 2012.  We have elected to participate in the completion and have paid completion costs of $12,463, which is carried as a prepaid expense.  We are still in the process of completing the well.  An additional cash call of $3,685 was paid in February 2012.

Impairment

We account for our oil and natural gas producing activities using the full cost method of accounting as prescribed by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Under this method, subject to a limitation based on estimated value, all costs incurred in the acquisition, exploration, and development of proved oil and natural gas properties, including internal costs directly associated with acquisition, exploration, and development activities, the costs of abandoned properties, dry holes, geophysical costs, and annual lease rentals are capitalized within a cost center.
 
We evaluated our capitalized costs using the full cost ceiling test as prescribed by the Securities and Exchange Commission at January 31, 2012 and July 31, 2011.  At January 31, 2012 and July 31, 2011, our net book value of oil and gas properties did not exceed the ceiling amount and thus, there was no impairment.

Changes in production rates, levels of reserves, future development costs, and other factors will determine our actual ceiling test calculation and impairment analyses in future periods.

Note 6 - Line of Credit
 
On March 17, 2011, GBE secured a one year revolving line of credit of up to $5,000,000 with a commercial bank. The note carries interest at a rate of prime + 1% (currently 6%) with a minimum interest rate of 5%. Interest is payable monthly. The note is collateralized by our Galveston Bay properties and substantially all of GBE’s assets. Strategic has also executed a parental guarantee of payment.

During the six months ended January 31, 2012 we had repaid $1,360,573 amounts outstanding on the line of credit. Thus, there were no amounts outstanding and the entire amount of the line of credit, $5,000,000, was available as of January 31, 2012.
 
We incurred $64,151 of loan origination fees which are being amortized straight line over one year, the term of the loan. As of January 31, 2012, $56,133 had been amortized.
 
 
Note 7 - Notes Payable

In November 2011, we paid $6,423 principal on a note payable due to a director and the associated accrued interest.

In October 2011, we paid $8,300 of principal on a note payable due to an officer and director of Strategic

During the six months ended January 31, 2012, we modified our insurance coverage and financed $18,667 of the premium due attributable to the endorsement.  We also paid the remaining installments for our insurance financing arrangement during the period.

During November 2011, we paid off the $175,000 note payable due to one of our former directors.

Accordingly, as of January 31, 2012, we had no notes payable outstanding.
 
Note 8 - Fair Value

Accounting standards regarding fair value of financial instruments define fair value, establish a three-level hierarchy which prioritizes and defines the types of inputs used to measure fair value, and establish disclosure requirements for assets and liabilities presented at fair value on the consolidated balance sheets.

Fair value is the amount that would be received from the sale of an asset or paid for the transfer of a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. A liability is quantified at the price it would take to transfer the liability to a new obligor, not at the amount that would be paid to settle the liability with the creditor.

The three-level hierarchy is as follows:
 
 
Level 1 inputs consist of unadjusted quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.
 
Level 2 inputs consist of quoted prices for similar instruments.
 
Level 3 valuations are derived from inputs which are significant and unobservable and have the lowest priority.
 
The following table sets forth by level within the fair value hierarchy our financial assets and liabilities that were accounted for at fair value on a recurring basis as of January 31, 2012.

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, accounts receivable, accounts receivable – related party, accounts payable and accrued expenses, and  notes payable approximate their fair market value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments.
 
Note 9 – Warrant Derivative Liability
 
Effective July 31, 2009, we adopted FASB ASC Topic No. 815-40 (formerly EITF 07-05) which defines determining whether an instrument (or embedded feature) is indexed to an entity’s own stock. This literature specifies that a contract that would otherwise meet the definition of a derivative but is both (a) indexed to our own stock and (b) classified in stockholders’ equity in the statement of financial position, would not be considered a derivative financial instrument and provides a new two-step model to be applied in determining whether a financial instrument or an embedded feature is indexed to an issuer’s own stock and thus able to qualify for the scope exception.
 
Certain warrants we issued during the year ended July 31, 2010 are not afforded equity treatment because these warrants have a down-round ratchet provision on the exercise price. As a result, the warrants are not considered indexed to our own stock, and as such, the fair value of the embedded derivative liability is reflected on the balance sheet and all future changes in the fair value of these warrants will be recognized currently in earnings in our consolidated statement of operations under the caption “Gain (loss) on warrant derivative liability” until such time as the warrants are exercised or expire. The total fair values of the warrants issued during the year ended July 31, 2010, were determined using a lattice model and have been recognized as a derivative liability as described below.
 
 
The warrants were valued using a multi-nomial lattice model with the following assumptions:
 
 
Warrant holders would exercise at target price multiples of the market price trigger prices.  The target price multiple reduces as the warrants approach maturity;
 
Warrant holders would exercise the warrant at maturity if the stock price was above two times the reset exercise price;
 
An annual reset event would occur at 65% discount to market price;
 
The projected volatility was based on historical volatility.  Because we do not have sufficient trading history to determine our own historical volatility, we used the volatility of a group of comparable companies combined with our own historical volatility from May 2009, when we began trading.

The following table sets forth the changes in the fair value measurement of our Level 3 derivative warrant liability during the six months ended January 31, 2012:
 
Beginning balance – August 1, 2011

)
 
 
 
 
 
At January 31, 2012

The $985,831 change in fair value was recorded as a reduction of the derivative liability and as an unrealized gain on the change in fair value of the liability in our statement of operations.
 
Note10 – Stockholders’ Equity

Common Stock Issuances

During December 2011 we granted 325,917 shares of common stock as compensation for services valued at $27,703. The shares were valued using the closing market price on the date of the grant.

During August 2011, we granted 4,739,630 shares of common stock to certain investors who had participated in our October and November 2009 equity raises, and as a consequence owned derivative warrants. These investors had exercised some of their warrants prior to our equity raise in February 2011, which triggered the down-round ratchet provision in the warrants.  The warrant contracts specify that the ratchet adjustment is not made for warrants that were exercised prior to the repricing event.  As a consequence of their warrant exercises, they had forfeited their contractual right to receive ratchet warrant shares.  However, management granted stock to these investors as a goodwill gesture.  The stock grant was treated as an investor relations expense and valued at $592,453.  The shares were valued using the closing market price on the date of grant.

During September 2011, we issued 95,000,000 million shares to the members of SPE Navigation I, LLC towards acquisition of SPE.  The purchase price was calculated as $9,500,000, based on the quoted market price of our stock on the date of the acquisition. (See Note 2 - Acquisitions).

Stock Options and Warrants

Strategic may grant up to 40,000,000 shares of common stock under several historical stock-based compensation plans (the “Plans”). During April 2011, the Board of Directors authorized and approved the adoption of the 2011 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2011 Plan”). An aggregate of 25,000,000 shares of our common stock may be issued under the 2011 Plan. During August 2010, the Board of Directors authorized and approved the adoption of the 2010 Stock Incentive Plan (the “2010 Plan”). An aggregate of 5,000,000 shares of our common stock may be issued under the 2010 Plan. An aggregate of 10,000,000 of our shares may be issued under the 2009 Re-Stated Stock Incentive Plan (the “2009 Plan”).  The Plans are administered by the Board of Directors which has substantial discretion to determine persons, amounts, time, price, exercise terms, and restrictions of the grants, if any.

There were no options grants during the six month period ended January 31, 2012.

Options granted to non-employees

For the options on a graded vesting schedule, we estimate the fair value of the award, using the Black-Sholes option pricing method, as of the end of each reporting period and recognize an appropriate portion of the cost based on the fair value on that date.  When the award vests, we adjust the cost previously recognized so that the cost ultimately recognized is equivalent to the fair value on the date the performance is complete. Based on the fair value of the options as of January 31, 2012 there was $815,243 of unrecognized compensation cost related to non-vested share based compensation arrangements granted to non-employees.

On February 15, 2011, we entered into a consulting agreement with Geoserve Marketing, LLC (“Geoserve”), a company controlled by Michael Watts, who is the father-in-law of Jeremy Driver, a Director and our Chief Executive Officer. In conjunction with the agreement, we granted warrants to purchase 30,000,000 shares of common stock that vest solely upon achievement of a market condition. If our common stock attains a five day average closing price of $.30 per share, an additional 15,000,000 warrants with an exercise price of $.10 and an expiration date of February 15, 2016 shall be issued.  If our common stock attains a five day average closing price of $.60 per share, an additional 15,000,000 warrants with an exercise price of $.10 and an expiration date of February 15, 2016 shall be issued.
 
 
The fair value of warrants that vest upon the attainment of a market condition must be estimated and amortized over the lower of the implicit or derived service period of the warrants.  The fair value of the warrants and the derived service period were valued using a lattice model that values the liability of the warrants based on a probability weighted discounted cash flow model. This model is based on future projections of the various potential outcomes. The warrants to purchase 15,000,000 shares of common stock at $.30 per share and 15,000,000 shares of common stock at $.60 per share will be amortized over the derived service periods of 2.08 years and 2.49 years, respectively.  As of January 31, 2012, the fair value of the warrants to purchase 15,000,000 shares of common stock at $.30 per share was $204,372 and the fair value of the warrants to purchase 15,000,000 shares at $.60 per share was $201,745.  We recognized $92,613 of expense associated with these warrants during the six months ended January 31, 2012.
 
Note 11 – Commitments and Contingencies

We are subject to various federal, state and local laws and regulations relating to the discharge of materials into, and protection of, the environment as an owner or lessee and operator of oil and gas properties.  These laws and regulations may, among other things, impose liability on the lessee under an oil and gas lease for the cost of pollution clean-up resulting from operations and subject the lessee to liability for pollution damages.  In some instances, we may be directed to suspend or cease operations in the affected area.  We maintain insurance coverage, which we believe is customary in the industry, although we are not fully insured against all environmental risks.

There is soil contamination at a tank facility owned by GBE.  As of July 31, 2011, we had determined that it was probable that remediation would be required and we were evaluating the extent of the contamination, the activities that will be required to perform the remediation, and whether the former owner would be required to assume the remediation.  As of July 31, 2011, we concluded that the cost of the remediation was not estimable and, accordingly, it had not been reflected in our financial results.

During the six months ended January 31, 2012, we continued evaluation of the site and concluded that we could reasonably estimate a range of potential cost. Depending on the technique used to perform the remediation, we estimate the cost range to be between $150,000 and $500,000.  We cannot determine a most likely scenario, thus we have recognized the lower end of the range.  $150,000 has been recognized and is included in the balance sheet caption Accounts payable and accrued expenses.  Because the liability was acquired with the acquisitions, we have adjusted the cost of acquired oil and gas properties to reflect the estimate of loss.
 
Oil and gas operators in the State of Texas are required to obtain a letter of credit in favor of the Railroad Commission of Texas as security that they will meet their obligations to plug and abandon the wells they operate. We have a letter of credit in the amount of $6,650,000 issued by Green Bank. We pay a 1.5% per annum fee in conjunction with this letter of credit. The fee, $99,400 was prepaid in June 2011 and is being amortized on a straight line basis through the letter of credit’s renewal in October 2012. As of January 31, 2012, $46,387 had been amortized.

As of January 31, 2012 and July 31, 2011 respectively, we had outstanding accounts receivable associated with these properties of $100,963 and $69,880 and no accounts payable.

In November 2011, we paid $6,423 principal on a note payable due to a director.  We also paid the associated accrued interest of $416.

In October 2011, we paid $8,300 of principal on a note payable due to an officer and director of Strategic. We also paid the accrued interest associated with the note of $413.

On September 23, 2011, we purchased SPE Navigation I, LLC, as more fully discussed in Note 2 – Acquisitions, with 95,000,000 shares of Strategic American common stock.  The owners of SPE were companies owned by the CEO of Strategic, his brother-in-law, and his sister-in-law. Because the purchase price, $9,500,000, as computed using the fair value of the 95,000,000 shares on the date of purchase, exceeded the net assets acquired, we recognized compensation expense on the excess, $4,367,750. (See Note 2 - Acquisitions).
 

We entered into a consulting contract with a company controlled by the father-in-law of our CEO, Michael Watts, in February 2011.  Under the contract, Mr. Watts will provide investor relations services.  Mr. Watts received warrants to purchase 20,000,000 shares of Strategic common stock at $.10 per share exercisable through February 2016 upon execution of the contract.  Additionally, he received warrants to purchase 30,000,000 shares of Strategic common stock at $.10 per share, which expire in February 2016.  The warrants vest if our common stock achieves certain market prices.  The compensation cost is determined using a lattice model as discussed in Note 10 – Stockholders’ Equity.  During the six months ended January 31, 2012, we recognized $92,613 of compensation cost associated with these warrants.
 
Note 13 – Subsequent Events

In February 2012, we entered into a premium financing arrangement to pay principal of $183,610 in conjunction with our commercial insurance program renewal.  We are obligated to make nine payments of $20,487 per month, which include principal and interest, beginning in March 2012.

In February 2012, we purchased a non-operated working interest in mineral leases covering 200 acres onshore in Hardeman County, Texas.  The operator had commenced drilling in the area on January 28, 2012.  Our working interest in the lease area is 13.3% to the casing point of the first well drilled and 10.0% after the casing point of the initial well and for subsequent operations in the lease area.  Our net revenue interest in the prospect is 7.50%. The well encountered no natural fracturing in the native limestone of the target geological formation which greatly limited the productivity of oil in the well. All parties chose to abandon and plug the well. We incurred approximately $90,000 of costs associated with the acquisition of this property and the drilling of the well.  We are evaluating further development opportunities in the field, including horizontal drilling.

Recent Activities

Acquisition of SPE

On September 26, 2011, we acquired SPE Navigation I, LLC for 95,000,000 shares of Strategic common stock.  SPE’s assets at the time of purchase were a 25% working interest in GBE’s historical interest in the Galveston Bay fields, as discussed in the notes to our consolidated financial statements, and one million shares of Hyperdynamics common stock.  Hyperdynamics is a public company traded on the NYSE.

Other projects

In February 2012, we began drilling a well, ST 9-12A #4, in the Fisher’s Reef Field located in Trinity Bay near Anahuac, Texas. Through our subsidiary, Galveston Bay Energy LLC, we retained a 25% working interest and operatorship of the well. The remaining 75% working interest was paid by industry and financial partners who have all elected to complete the well based upon our recommendation using down-hole logs, sidewall cores, and other geological data available at the time. Completion operations are now underway.

In February 2012, we purchased a non-operated working interest in mineral leases covering 200 acres onshore in Hardeman County, Texas.  The operator had commenced drilling in the area on January 28, 2012.  Our working interest in the lease area is 13.3% to the casing point of the first well drilled and 10.0% after the casing point of the initial well and for subsequent operations in the lease area.  Our net revenue interest in the prospect is 7.50%. The well encountered no natural fracturing in the native limestone of the target geological formation which greatly limited the productivity of oil in the well. All parties chose to abandon and plug the well. We incurred approximately $90,000 of costs associated with the acquisition of this property and the drilling of the well.  We are evaluating further development opportunities in the field, including horizontal drilling.

In September 2011, we purchased a non-operated working interest in mineral leases covering 460 acres onshore in Duval County, Texas.  Under the agreement, the operator commenced drilling a well, the Palacios #1, during November 2011.  Our working interest in the lease area is 6.70732% to the casing point of the first well drilled and 5.5% after the casing point of the initial well and for subsequent operations in the lease area.  Our net revenue interest in the prospect is 4.125%.   The operator commenced drilling of an exploratory well, Palacios #1, within the prospect area in November 2011. We have expended $37,120 on this project as of January 31, 2012.  We have elected to participate in the completion and have paid completion costs of $12,463, which is carried as a prepaid expense.  We are still in the process of completing the well.  An additional cash call of $3,685 was paid in February 2012.

In September 2011, the operator in our Markham City, Illinois project area commenced drilling of three wells.  Two wells were completed in October 2011, one of which is producing oil and the other of which is shut in pending further evaluation.  The third well will be used as a water supply well.  Water injection operations began in January 2012. As of January 31, 2012, the operator had expended approximately $1,061,000 towards the Earnings Threshold.  In accordance with our farmout agreement, we will be required to contribute our 10% working interest share toward operations in the area after the Earnings Threshold, $1,350,000, has been met.

We recorded a net loss of $291,877, or ($0.00) per basic and diluted common share, during the quarter ended January 31, 2012, as compared to a net loss of $651,275, or ($0.01) per basic and diluted common share, during the quarter ended January 31, 2011.

The changes in results were predominantly due to the factors below:
 
 
·
Revenues, lease operating expense, depreciation, depletion, and amortization expense, and accretion expense increased substantially because of the inclusion of the results of our new subsidiaries, GBE and SPE.  We purchased GBE on February 15, 2011.  We purchased SPE on September 23, 2011.  Our consolidated financial statements include the results associated with the working interest in oil and gas properties in Galveston Bay, Texas acquired in these two transactions.  Through these working interests, we produced from oil and gas wells in four fields. This represents a substantial increase in our operations.
 
·
Consulting fees – related party increased due to the amortization of expense associated with warrants granted as compensation to a company for investor relations and public relations services.  This company is a related party, as it is controlled by the father-in-law of our CEO, Jeremy Driver.
 
·
Impairment – Impairment expenses for the six months ended January 31, 2012 was $0 as compared to $140,029 for the comparable quarter of 2011. The net book value of our oil and gas properties did not exceed the ceiling and hence there was no impairment recorded on January 31, 2012 in comparison to the prior period where it exceeded the ceiling by $140,029.
 
 
 
·
After our purchase of GBE, we secured office space in Houston, Texas and hired additional accounting staff, an operations manager and regulatory manager for GBE.  The new location and staff increased our general and administrative expenses by approximately $230,000. Equity based compensation increased approximately $240,000.  In addition, we incurred increased professional services fees of $60,000, primarily due to legal costs incurred in the second quarter 2012.
 
·
GBE maintains a letter of credit to satisfy a Texas Railroad Commission requirement and has a line of credit with a commercial bank.  Because of these arrangements, interest expense increased.
 
·
We re-measure our derivative warrants at fair value at every reporting date.  The fair value of the derivative warrants, as determined using a lattice model, reduced substantially as of January 31, 2012 as compared with October 31, 2011, resulting in a gain on derivative warrant liability; whereas there was an increase in fair value of the warrants as of January 31, 2011 as compared with October 31, 2010 resulting in a loss on derivative warrant liability in 2011.
 
·
We recognized an income tax benefit during the three months ended January 31, 2012 due to an adjustment of the valuation allowance for our deferred tax assets.  We determined that current deferred tax assets exist that are sufficient to offset deferred tax liabilities that had been acquired with the purchase of SPE Navigation 1, LLC.

We do not expect the gain on the sale of available for sale securities to occur on a recurring basis.  The increases in revenue, lease operating expense, depreciation, depletion, and amortization expense, accretion expense, and interest expense are associated with the operations of GBE and will be an ongoing element in our financial results.

The changes in results were predominantly due to the factors below:
 
 
·
Revenues, lease operating expense, depreciation, depletion, and amortization expense, and accretion expense increased substantially because of the inclusion of the results of our new subsidiaries, GBE and SPE.  We purchased GBE on February 15, 2011.  We purchased SPE on September 23, 2011.  Our consolidated financial statements include the results associated with the working interest in oil and gas properties in Galveston Bay, Texas acquired in these two transactions.  Through these working interests, we produced from oil and gas wells in four fields. This represents a substantial increase in our operations.
 
·
Consulting fees – related party increased due to the amortization of expense associated with warrants granted as compensation to a company for investor relations and public relations services in February 2011.  This company is a related party, as it is controlled by the father-in-law of our CEO, Jeremy Driver.
 
·
We incurred an expense charge of $4,367,750 due to the excess of the fair value of the purchase price of SPE over the carrying value in the net assets acquired in the SPE acquisition.
 
·
After our purchase of GBE, we secured office space in Houston, Texas and hired additional accounting staff, an operations manager and regulatory manager for GBE.   Accordingly, general and administrative expenses attributable to compensation and office costs increased by approximately $600,000, which included an increase in equity based compensation of approximately 200,000 due to the amortization of option awards in 2012. Investor relations expense increased $300,000, which is attributable to approximately $600,000 associated with a stock grant during the quarter ended October 31, 2011 offset by an approximately $300,000 decrease in expense due to non-repeated programs from 2011. The other major driver was increased audit and professional fees due to our larger scope of operations and some non-recurring expenditures such as acquisition audits and litigation costs.
 
·
GBE maintains a letter of credit to satisfy a Texas Railroad Commission requirement and has a line of credit with a commercial bank.  Because of these arrangements, interest expense increased.
 
·
We re-measure our derivative warrants at fair value at every reporting date.  The fair value of the derivative warrants, as determined using a lattice model, reduced substantially as of January 31, 2012 as compared with July 31, 2011, resulting in a gain on derivative warrant liability; whereas the change in fair value of the warrants in the comparative prior period resulted in a loss.
 
·
We acquired equity securities with our acquisition of SPE.  We sold securities with a cost basis of $3,510,000 for proceeds of $3,943,168, resulting in a gain on the sale of the securities.
 
·
We recognized an income tax benefit during the three months ended January 31, 2012 due to an adjustment of the valuation allowance for our deferred tax assets.  We determined that current deferred tax assets exist that are sufficient to offset deferred tax liabilities that had been acquired with the purchase of SPE Navigation 1, LLC.

We do not expect the gain on the sale of available for sale securities to occur on a recurring basis.  The increases in revenue, lease operating expense, depreciation, depletion, and amortization expense, accretion expense, and interest expense are associated with the operations of GBE and will be an ongoing element in our financial results.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

The following table sets forth our cash and working capital as of January 31, 2012 and July 31, 2011:

Working capital (deficit)
 
$
(263,812
)
 
$
(3,773,504
)

At January 31, 2012, we had $3,073,078 of cash on hand and a working capital deficit of $263,812 ($1,557,392 is attributable to a warrant derivative liability which would ordinarily be settled in stock). We believe our working capital on January 31, 2012 was sufficient to enable us to pursue our lease operating costs, to pay our general and administrative expenses, and to pursue our plan of operations over the next 12 months.

Various conditions outside of our control may detract from our ability to raise the capital needed to execute our plan of operations, including the price of oil as well as the overall market conditions in the international and local economies. We recognize that the United States economy has suffered through a period of uncertainty during which the capital markets have been depressed from levels established in recent years, and that there is no certainty that these levels will stabilize or reverse. We also recognize that the price of oil decreased from approximately $140 per barrel in 2008 to under $40 per barrel in February of 2009.  During our fiscal year ended July 31, 2011, oil price levels increased as to a high of $114 per barrel, but they have decreased to approximately $98 per barrel as of January 2012. If the price of oil drops to levels seen in previous years, we recognize that it will adversely affect our ability to raise additional capital. Any of these factors could have a material impact upon our ability to raise financing and, as a result, upon our short-term or long-term liquidity.
 
 
Net Cash Provided by (Used in) Operating Activities

During the six months ended January 31, 2012, operating activities provided $733,095 in comparison to cash used of $648,492 during the six months ended January 31, 2011. The increase in the cash provided by operating activities is primarily attributable to prepayments received from working interest partners pertaining to their share of the costs of drilling oil and gas wells. Also, prior to our acquisition of GBE, operating activities have primarily used cash as a result of the operating and organizational activities such as consulting and professional fees, direct operating costs, management fees and travel and promotion.   With our acquisition of GBE, we expect to derive a much greater percentage of our cash flows from operations from revenues and direct operating costs.  Because the GBE properties will increase our contribution margin from our core activities, the acquisition should continue to enhance our cash flows from operations.

Net Cash Provided by Investing Activities

During the six months ended January 31, 2012, investing activities provided cash of $2,907,443 compared to cash provided of $45,044 during the six months ended January 31, 2011. In 2012, the cash provided is mainly attributable to proceeds from the sale of available for sale securities.  In 2011, we received proceeds from the sale of oil and gas properties. We expect to use cash in investing in the future due to our planned investment in the fields that we acquired when we acquired GBE.

Net Cash (Used in) Provided by Financing Activities

Financing activities during the six months ended January 31, 2012 used cash of $1,649,559 in comparison to $363,400 provided during the comparable prior period. Financing activities during the current period consisted of payments of existing debt and the line of credit. During the comparable prior period our financing activities consisted primarily of sale of common stock and payments on notes payable.

Critical Accounting Policies

The financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the 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.

We regularly evaluate the accounting policies and estimates that we use to prepare our consolidated financial statements. In general, our estimates are based on historical experience, on information from third party professionals, and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the facts and circumstances. Actual results could differ from those estimates made by management.

We believe that our critical accounting policies and estimates include the accounting for oil and gas properties, long-lived assets reclamation costs, the fair value of our warrant derivative liability, and accounting stock-based compensation.

Oil and Natural Gas Properties

We account for our oil and natural gas producing activities using the full cost method of accounting as prescribed by the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). Under this method, subject to a limitation based on estimated value, all costs incurred in the acquisition, exploration, and development of proved oil and natural gas properties, including internal costs directly associated with acquisition, exploration, and development activities, the costs of abandoned properties, dry holes, geophysical costs, and annual lease rentals are capitalized within a cost center. Costs of production and general and administrative corporate costs unrelated to acquisition, exploration, and development activities are expensed as incurred.

Costs associated with unevaluated properties are capitalized as oil and natural gas properties but are excluded from the amortization base during the evaluation period. When we determine whether the property has proved recoverable reserves or not, or if there is an impairment, the costs are transferred into the amortization base and thereby become subject to amortization.

We assess all items classified as unevaluated property on at least an annual basis for inclusion in the amortization base. We assess properties on an individual basis or as a group if properties are individually insignificant. The assessment includes consideration of the following factors, among others: intent to drill; remaining lease term; geological and geophysical evaluations; drilling results and activity; the assignment of proved reserves; and the economic viability of development if proved reserves are assigned. During any period in which these factors indicate that there would be impairment, or if proved reserves are assigned to a property, the cumulative costs incurred to date for such property are transferred to the amortizable base and are then subject to amortization.

Capitalized costs included in the amortization base are depleted using the units of production method based on proved reserves. Depletion is calculated using the capitalized costs included in the amortization base, including estimated asset retirement costs, plus the estimated future expenditures to be incurred in developing proved reserves, net of estimated salvage values.

 
The net book value of all capitalized oil and natural gas properties within a cost center, less related deferred income taxes, is subject to a full cost ceiling limitation which is calculated quarterly. Under the ceiling limitation, costs may not exceed an aggregate of the present value of future net revenues attributable to proved oil and natural gas reserves discounted at 10 percent using current prices, plus the lower of cost or market value of unproved properties included in the amortization base, plus the cost of unevaluated properties, less any associated tax effects. Any excess of the net book value, less related deferred tax benefits, over the ceiling is written off as expense. Impairment expense recorded in one period may not be reversed in a subsequent period even though higher oil and gas prices may have increased the ceiling applicable to the subsequent period.

Sales or other dispositions of oil and natural gas properties are accounted for as adjustments to capitalized costs, with no gain or loss recorded unless the ratio of cost to proved reserves would significantly change.

Asset Retirement Obligation

We record the fair value of an asset retirement cost, and corresponding liability as part of the cost of the related long-lived asset and the cost is subsequently allocated to expense using a systematic and rational method. We record an asset retirement obligation to reflect our legal obligations related to future plugging and abandonment of our oil and natural gas wells and gas gathering systems. We estimate the expected cash flow associated with the obligation and discount the amount using a credit-adjusted, risk-free interest rate. At least annually, we reassess the obligation to determine whether a change in the estimated obligation is necessary. We evaluate whether there are indicators that suggest the estimated cash flows underlying the obligation have materially changed. Should those indicators suggest the estimated obligation may have materially changed on an interim basis (quarterly), we will accordingly update our assessment. Additional retirement obligations increase the liability associated with new oil and natural gas wells and gas gathering systems as these obligations are incurred.

Fair Value

Accounting standards regarding fair value of financial instruments define fair value, establish a three-level hierarchy which prioritizes and defines the types of inputs used to measure fair value, and establish disclosure requirements for assets and liabilities presented at fair value on the consolidated balance sheets.

Fair value is the amount that would be received from the sale of an asset or paid for the transfer of a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. A liability is quantified at the price it would take to transfer the liability to a new obligor, not at the amount that would be paid to settle the liability with the creditor.

The three-level hierarchy is as follows:
 
·
Level 1 inputs consist of unadjusted quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets.
 
·
Level 2 inputs consist of quoted prices for similar instruments.
 
·
Level 3 valuations are derived from inputs which are significant and unobservable and have the lowest priority.

Financial assets and liabilities are classified in their entirety based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.  We have determined that certain warrants outstanding as of the date of these financial statements qualify as derivative financial instruments under the provisions of FASB ASC Topic No. 815-40, “Derivatives and Hedging – Contracts in an Entity’s Own Stock.” These warrant agreements include provisions designed to protect holders from a decline in the stock price (‘down-round’ provision) by reducing the exercise price in the event we issue equity shares at a price lower than the exercise price of the warrants.  As a result of this down-round provision, the exercise price of these warrants could be modified based upon a variable that is not an input to the fair value of a ‘fixed-for-fixed’ option as defined under FASB ASC Topic No. 815-40 and consequently, these warrants must be treated as a liability and recorded at fair value at each reporting date.

The fair value of these warrants was determined using a lattice model with any change in fair value during the period recorded in earnings as “Gain (loss) on derivative warrant liability.”

Significant inputs used to calculate the fair value of the warrants include expected volatility, risk-free interest rate and management’s assumptions regarding the likelihood of a future repricing of these warrants pursuant to the down-round provision.

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, accounts receivable, accounts receivable – related party, accounts payable and accrued expenses, and notes payable approximate their fair market value based on the short-term maturity of these instruments.

Stock-Based Compensation

ASC 718, “Compensation-Stock Compensation” requires recognition in the financial statements of the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments over the period the employee is required to perform the services in exchange for the award (presumptively the vesting period). We measure the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award based on the grant-date fair value of the award.

We account for non-employee share-based awards based upon ASC 505-50, “Equity-Based Payments to Non-Employees.”  ASC 505-50 requires the costs of goods and services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments to be recognized using the fair value of the goods and services or the fair value of the equity award, whichever is more reliably measurable. The fair value of the equity award is determined on the measurement date, which is the earlier of the date that a performance commitment is reached or the date that performance is complete.  Generally, our awards do not entail performance commitments.  When an award vests over time such that performance occurs over multiple reporting periods, we estimate the fair value of the award as of the end of each reporting period and recognize an appropriate portion of the cost based on the fair value on that date.  When the award vests, we adjust the cost previously recognized so that the cost ultimately recognized is equivalent to the fair value on the date the performance is complete.
 

We recognize the cost associated with share-based awards that have a graded vesting schedule on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period of the entire award.
 
Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have not entered into any off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes of financial condition, revenues, expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to investors.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Our management, with the participation of our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on such evaluation, our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer have concluded that, as of the end of the period covered by this report, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective, due to the deficiencies in our internal control over financial reporting as described in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for our fiscal year ended July 31, 2011, which deficiencies have not yet been remedied.

Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There have not been any changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during our fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2012 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
