NOTES TO THE CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

MARCH 31, 2012

(Unaudited)

 

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

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

 

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

 

Use of Estimates

 

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

 

Subsequent Events

 

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

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

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

 

NOTE 2 – GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Elray have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company sustained net losses of $365,628 and cash used in operating activities of $109,873 for the three months ended March 31 2012.  The Company had a working capital deficiency, stockholders’ deficiency and accumulated deficit of $1,643,596, $1,653,596 and $7,385,967, respectively, at March 31, 2012. These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Without realization of additional capital, it would be unlikely for Elray to continue as a going concern.  Elray's management plans on raising cash from public or private debt or equity financing, on an as needed basis, and in the longer term, revenues from the gambling business.  Elray's ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on these additional cash financings, and, ultimately, upon achieving profitable operations through the development of its gambling business.

NOTE 3 – NOTES PAYABLE

On December 9, 2011, Elray entered into an Amended Splitrock Agreement whereby the Company acquired certain assets and liabilities of Splitrock.

    March 31, 2012   December 31, 2011

Total   150,000    (101,646)   48,354   50,000    (24,156)   25,844

 

On December 9, 2011, as a result of the Splitrock transaction (see above), the Company assumed $25,000 of a convertible note. The note is due on August 4, 2012 with 10% annual interest. The note was convertible to Splitrock’s common stock at $0.1 per share prior to December 9, 2011 and is now convertible to 7,545,272 shares of the Company’s common stock. The Company recorded a beneficial conversion feature of $5,181 on December 9, 2011 and amortized debt discount of $1,943 during the three months ended March 31, 2012.

On October 12, 2011, the Company entered into a convertible note agreement with JSJ Investments, Inc. (“JSJ”) for $25,000 in cash. The note is for one year and bears interest at a rate of 8% per annum. From April 12, 2012 to April 12, 2013 the note holder has the option to convert the note to ordinary shares in the Company at a discount of 50% of the average of the preceding seven days closing price.

On January 19, 2012 the Company entered into an agreement with JSJ in which JSJ agreed to loan the Company $25,000 (the “Second JSJ note”). The note is for one year and bears interest at a rate of 10% per annum. From July 19, 2012 to July 19, 2013 the note holder has the option to convert the note to ordinary shares in the Company at a discount of 50% of the average of the preceding seven days closing price.

On February 1, 2012 the Company entered into a convertible promissory note with Asher Enterprises, Inc. (“Asher”) for $42,500 (the “First Asher Note”). The note bears interest at 8% and matures on November 6, 2012. In the event that the note remains unpaid at that date, the Company will pay default interest of 22%. Asher has the right after a period of 180 days to convert the balance outstanding into ordinary shares in the Company at a rate equal to 58% of the average lowest three closing prices during the ten trading days prior to the conversion date.

On March 15, 2012, the Company entered into a convertible promissory note with Asher Enterprises, Inc. (“Asher”) for $32,500. (the “Second Asher Note”) The note bears interest at 8% and matures on December 19, 2012. In the event that the note remains unpaid at that date, the Company will pay default interest of 22%. Asher has the right after a period of 180 days to convert the balance outstanding into the Company’s common stock at a rate equal to 58% of the average lowest three closing prices during the ten trading days prior to the conversion date.

Due to the JSJ and Asher notes’ conversion feature, the actual number of shares of common stock that would be required if a conversion of the note was made through the issuance of common stock cannot be predicted, and the Company could be required to issue an amount of shares that may cause it to exceed its authorized common share amount. As a result, the conversion feature requires derivative accounting treatment and will be bifurcated from the note and “marked to market” each reporting period through the income statement.

The conversion feature of the Second JSJ Note, the First Asher Note and the Second Asher Note was valued at $40,743, $54,486, and $42,236, respectively, on the issuance date. As a result, these notes were fully discounted and the fair value of the conversion feature in excess of the principal amount of these notes totaled $37,465 was expensed immediately as additional interest expense.

Loans from shareholders

Notes and convertible notes payable, net of discounts, at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011 consisted of the following:

    March 31,   December 31,
    2012   2011
Elmside Pty Ltd   $   55,991   $      55,991

On September 5, 2008, Elmside Pty Ltd, a company related to a former director, agreed to an interest free loan to the Company on an as-needed basis to fund the business operations and expenses of the Company until December 9, 2011, the due date of the loan. The note is now due on demand.

Long-term note payable

On February 1, 2012, the Company entered into an agreement with Goldglobe Investments Limited (“Goldglobe”) whereby Goldglobe would loan the Company $20,000 in tranches of $5,000 each, paid as needed by the Company. The loan is due in two years at an interest rate of 12% per annum. As of March 31, 2012, the Company had received $10,000 of this loan.

NOTE 4 – DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES – NOTE CONVERSION FEATURE

Due to the conversion feature contained in the First JSJ Note, the Second JSJ Note, the First Asher Note and the Second Asher Note issued, the actual number of shares of common stock that would be required if a conversion of the note as further described in Note 7 was made through the issuance of the Company’s common stock cannot be predicted, and the Company could be required to issue an amount of shares that may cause it to exceed its authorized share amount. As a result, the conversion feature requires derivative accounting treatment and will be bifurcated from the note and “marked to market” each reporting period through the income statement. The fair value of the conversion future of these notes was recognized as a derivative liability instrument and will be measured at fair value at each reporting period.

The Company remeasured the fair value of the instrument as of March 31, 2012, and recorded an unrealized loss of $9,487 for the three months ended March 31, 2012. At March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the derivative liability associated with the note conversion feature was $175,547 and $28,595, respectively. The Company determined the fair values of these liabilities using a Black-Scholes valuation model with the following assumptions:

  December 31, 2011   January 19, 2012   February 1, 2012   March 15, 2012   March 31, 2012
Estimated market value of common stock on measurement date $0.01650   $0.0125   $0.0800   $0.0800   $0.0800
Exercise price $0.00825   $0.00625   $0.00464   $0.00464   $0.004
Discount rate 0.3050%   0.3350%   0.3300%   0.3300%   0.4200%
Expected volatility 192%   221%   218%   245%   226%
Expected dividend yield 0.00%   0.00%   0.00%   0.00%   0.00%

Overview

 

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

 

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

 

On February 23, 2011, Elray entered into a Purchase Agreement (the “Splitrock Agreement”) to acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Splitrock Ventures (BVI) Limited (“Splitrock”), a British Virgin Islands company, in consideration of the issuance of 592,454,728 shares of common stock of the Company. Splitrock is in the online gaming business. On the closing date, pursuant to the terms of the Splitrock Agreement, Anthony Goodman, representing the shareholders of Splitrock, acquired the 592,454,728 shares of Elray’s common stock, which resulted in a change of control under which 70% of the shares of Elray are now held by the previous shareholders of Splitrock. In accordance with the Splitrock Agreement, Barry J. Lucas resigned as Chairman and Director and Anthony Goodman was elected as a replacement; Neil Crang resigned as Director and Donald Radcliffe and Roy Sugarman were elected as replacements; and Michael J. Malbourne resigned as Secretary and David E Price, Esq. was appointed as a replacement.

 

On December 9, 2011, Elray entered into an Amended Purchase Agreement (“Amended Splitrock Agreement”) which amended certain elements of the Splitrock Agreement originally entered into by the parties of February 23, 2011. Whereas under the Splitrock Agreement, the Company was to acquire 100% of the shares of Splitrock, pursuant to the Amended Splitrock Agreement, the Company shall instead acquire only certain assets and liabilities of Splitrock. As consideration for the acquisition of Splitrock, the Company has issued 592,454,728 shares to the shareholders of Splitrock as full consideration therefore.

 

On March 8, 2012, the Company finalized negotiations for advanced Web Application Intellectual Property that will allow Elray to build unique Consumer Web Products that will be marketed under the brand CrazyJapps. The Company is currently performing final due diligence and is expected to finalize the purchase agreement in the coming weeks.

 

On March 22, 2012, Elray entered into a binding letter of intent with Golden Match (“GM”), a company incorporated in the British Virgin Islands. Pursuant to the letter of intent, Elray and Golden Match will enter into an acquisition agreement in which Elray will acquire all of the outstanding shares of GM and the shareholders and consultants of GM will acquire a minimum of 95% of the Company’s common stock. Pursuant to the agreement, Elray has 30 days to secure $10,000,000 line of credit or loan before Elray and GM enter into a definitive purchase agreement.

On April 25, 2012, the Company entered into a promissory note with Rousay Holdings Ltd for $10,000,000. If funded in full, the note will be secured by the issue of 923,206,006 shares and will be due in one year at an interest rate of 20% payable in arrears. On maturity, the interest of $2,000,000 is repayable in cash and the note holder may elect to take ownership of the shares held, in lieu of repayment of principal.

 

On May 4, 2012, the Company entered into an acquisition agreement under which the Company acquired all of the outstanding shares of GM. This follows the letter of intent previously signed on March 22, 2012. Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, Elray acquired 100% of GM, an investment holding company which has a profit share agreement with CALI Promocao de Jogos Sociedade Unipessoal Lda., a company duly incorporated under the laws of the Special Administrative Region of Macau. In terms of the agreement, Elray transferred, to the principals of GM, 211,018,516 of its Series A Preferred Stock, which on a fully dilutive basis, will equal 95% of the Company's then outstanding shares. The principals of GM than became the Company’s majority shareholder. In accordance with the above-referenced agreement, Mr. Lao Sio I has been appointed as the Chairman of the Company’s Board of Directors.

 

Plan of Operation

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

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

 

On March 22, 2012, Elray entered into a binding Letter of Intent with Golden Match, a company incorporated in the British Virgin Islands. Elray and Golden Match will enter into an acquisition agreement in which Elray will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Golden Match in exchange for at least 95% of the Company’s outstanding shares after the acquisition. On May 4, 2012, the Company entered into an acquisition agreement under which the Company acquired all of the outstanding shares of GM.

 

Golden Match is an investment holding company. Its principal business activity is to hold a profit share agreement with a VIP Room Gaming Promoter, the terms of which they receive 80% of the profit stream from the Promoters. The Promoter currently participates in the promotion of major luxury VIP gaming facilities in Macao, China.

 

Results of Operations

 

For the Three Months Ended March 31, 2012 compared to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2011.

 

Revenues

 

We did not generate any revenues during the reporting periods.

 

Expenses

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, general and administrative expenses were $287,605 and $19,848, respectively. The increase in general and administrative expense was primarily a result of consulting fees and online gaming and related technology development costs of $212,936. Travel and related expenses of $22,487 also contributed to the increase.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2011, the Company recognized $1,016,000 of compensation expense as a result of the extinguishment of a $100,000 debt to Elmside Pty Ltd., a related party, for 93,000,000 shares of common stock valued at $1,116,000.

 

12
 

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, exploration expenses were $0 and $4,622, respectively, reflecting the discontinuance of maintenance and exploitation of the gold mining properties.

 

Interest Expenses

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, interest expenses were $68,536 and $0, respectively. The increase of interest expenses was due to the liabilities assumed in December 2011 pursuant to the Amended Splitrock Agreement.

 

Net Loss

 

We incurred net losses from operations of $365,628 and $1,047,430 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively. The decrease of net loss in 2012 was as a result of the items discussed above.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Our cash used in operating activities for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $109,873 compared to $9,805 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase in cash used in operations was primarily attributable to activities related to the acquisition of Golden Match during the three months ended March 31, 2012.

 

Our cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $120,000, compared to $9,938 for the three months ended March 31, 2011. The increase is mainly due to the issuance of common stock for $10,000 cash and proceeds from notes payable and convertible notes payable of $110,000 during the three months ended March 31, 2012 compared to proceeds from loans from related parties of $9,938 during the three months ended March 31, 2011.

 

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

 

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

 

Material Events and Uncertainties

 

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

 

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