NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONSOLIDATED

FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Note 1 - Organization and Principal Activities

 

Organization and Description of Business

 

Lustros, Inc., formerly Power-Save Energy Company, (the “Company") is the successor corporation of Mag Enterprises, Inc., a Utah corporation incorporated on July 30, 1980. On September 10, 1993, an Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation was filed to change its name from Mag Enterprises, Inc. to Safari Associates, Inc. On September 12, 2006, an Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation was filed to change its name from Safari Associates, Inc. to Power-Save Energy Company.

 

On February 29, 2012, Power-Save Energy Company entered into an agreement to acquire all of the capital stock of Bluestone S.A. On March 9, 2012, pursuant to a Share Exchange Agreement (the “Share Exchange Agreement”) with Bluestone, S.A., a Chilean corporation (“Bluestone”), and the shareholders of Bluestone, S.A. (“Bluestone Shareholders’), the Company acquired 100% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of Bluestone (the “Bluestone Stock”) from Bluestone Shareholders.  In exchange for the Bluestone Stock, the Company issued 60,000,000 shares of its Common Stock to the Bluestone Shareholders.  As a result of closing the transaction, Bluestone Shareholders now hold approximately 96.7% of the Company’s issued and outstanding Common Stock.  For accounting purposes, the Bluestone acquisition is treated as a reverse acquisition with Bluestone treated as the acquirer and the Company as the acquired party. As a result, the business and financial information included in the report is the business and financial information of Bluestone prior to March 9, 2012 and the combined entity after March 9, 2012.

 

On March 25, 2012, the Company agreed with the former management of Power-Save Energy Company to transfer the renewable energy and energy savings product business, including all assets, liabilities, and the name Power-Save Energy Company to the former management in lieu of unpaid salaries and any other potential monies owed to them.

 

On April 12, 2012, an Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation was filed to change its name from Power-Save Energy Company to Lustros, Inc.

 

Note 2 - Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of the consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts in the consolidated financial statements, including the estimated useful lives of tangible and intangible assets. Management believes the estimates used in preparing the financial statements are reasonable and prudent. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of Lustros, Inc., its wholly owned subsidiary Bluestone, and the subsidiaries and mining projects owned by Bluestone. All significant inter-company balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Foreign Currency Translation

 

The financial statements of the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary, Bluestone are measured using the local currency (the Chilean Peso (CLP) is the functional currency). Assets and liabilities of Bluestone SA are translated at exchange rates as of the balance sheet date. Revenues and expenses are translated at average rates of exchange in effect during the period. The resulting cumulative translation adjustments have been recorded as a component of comprehensive income (loss), included as a separate item in the statement of operations. The exchange rate at June 30, 2012 was 509.73 Chilean Pesos per United States Dollar, based on historical rates from Banco Central de Chile.

 

8
 

  

The Company is exposed to movements in foreign currency exchange rates. In addition, the Company is subject to risks including adverse developments in the foreign political and economic environment, trade barriers, managing foreign operations, and potentially adverse tax consequences. There can be no assurance that any of these factors will not have a material negative impact on the Company's financial condition or results of operations in the future.

 

Financial Instruments

 

The Company's financial instruments include cash and cash equivalents, and accounts payable. At June 30, 2012 the carrying cost of these instruments approximate their fair value.

 

Cash Equivalents

 

Cash equivalents include highly liquid investments with maturities of three months or less.

 

Property and Equipment

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is computed principally on the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of each type of asset which ranges from three to five years. Major improvements are capitalized, while expenditures for repairs and maintenance are expensed when incurred. Upon retirement or disposition, the related costs and accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts, and any resulting gains or losses are credited or charged to income.

 

Mining Properties and Equipment

 

The Company will follow the successful efforts method of accounting. All developmental costs will be capitalized. Depreciation and depletion of producing properties will be computed on the unit-of-production method based on estimated proved reserves. Repairs and maintenance will be expensed, while renewals and betterments will be generally capitalized.

 

At least quarterly, or more frequently if conditions indicate that long-term assets may be impaired, the carrying value of our properties will be compared to management's future estimated pre-tax cash flow from the properties. If undiscounted cash flows are less than the carrying value, then the asset value will be written down to fair value. Impairment of individually significant unproved properties will be assessed on a property-by-property basis, and impairment of other unproved properties is assessed and amortized on an aggregate basis.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

Revenue is recognized in accordance with SEC Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 101, "Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements". The Company recognizes revenue when the significant risks and rewards of ownership have been transferred to the customer pursuant to applicable laws and regulations, including factors such as when there has been evidence of a sales arrangement, delivery has occurred, or services have been rendered, the price to the buyer is fixed or determinable, and collection is reasonably assured. The Company is responsible for warehousing and shipping the merchandise.

 

Stock - Based Compensation

 

The Company may periodically issue shares of Common Stock for services rendered or for other costs and expenses. Such shares will be valued based on the market price of the shares on the transaction date.

 

The Company may periodically issue stock options to employees and stock options or warrants to non-employees in non-capital raising transactions for services and for financing costs.

 

The Company accounts for its stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC Topic 718, "Share-Based Payment, and an Amendment of FASB Statement No. 123." The Company recognizes in the statement of operations the grant-date fair value of stock options and other equity-based compensation issued to employees and non-employees.

 

9
 

 

Earnings Per Common Share

 

ASC Topic 260, “Earnings Per Share”, requires presentation of basic earnings per share (“Basic EPS”) and diluted earnings per share (“Diluted EPS”). Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing earnings (loss) available to Common Stockholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding (including shares reserved for issuance) during the period. Diluted earnings per share gives effect to all potential dilutive common shares outstanding during the period.

 

Going Concern

 

The Company’s financial statements are prepared using accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) applicable to a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. As shown in the accompanying consolidated financial statements, the Company has a limited operating history and limited funds and has an accumulated deficit of $1,692,564.  These factors affect the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

In order to continue as a going concern and achieve a profitable level of operations, the Company will require additional cash infusions from the sale of equity and will seek to generate income from several avenues.  

 

The financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recoverability and classification of assets and/or liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern. The continuation as a going concern is dependent upon the ability of the Company to meet our obligations on a timely basis, and, ultimately to attain profitability.

 

Note 3 - Sulfatos Chile

 

Supplemental cash flows information

 

The following information presents supplemental cash flows information of assets acquired and liabilities assumed in connection with the Sulfatos Chile Acquisition:

  

   Six Months Ended
June 30, 2012
 
Prepaid expenses  $764,551 
Property and equipment   7,331,655 
Accounts payable   (447,343)
Notes payable   (2,580,399)
   $5,068,464 
Plus, cash acquired   892,294 
Total value of acquisition  $5,960,758 
Value of acquisition allocated to additional paid-in capital  $2,696,455 
Value of acquisition allocated to minority interest  $3,264,303 

 

On February 15, 2012, Bluestone purchased a 60% equity interest in Sulfatos Chile from Santa Teresa Minerals pursuant to the stock purchase agreement dated January 26, 2012, as amended. The interests in Sulfatos Chile were sold in exchange for (a) Santa Teresa Minerals receiving 2,000 shares of Common Stock of Bluestone, representing 20% of the outstanding capital stock of Bluestone at the time; and (b) $2.2 million, with $1.1 million paid by cancellation of a demand loan made to Santa Teresa Minerals by Angelique de Maison, a director of the Company, in January 2012, which loan had been assigned by Ms. de Maison to Bluestone, and the balance of $1.1 million to be paid in monthly installments from time to time upon demand by Santa Teresa Minerals. A total of $2,065,000 has been paid as of June 30, 2012 with $135,000 remaining as a note payable.

 

The transaction has been accounted for as a purchase. However, the purchase price has been allocated to additional paid-in capital and the assets and liabilities are carried over at historical costs since the purchase was between related parties. Results of operations for the acquired companies have been reflected in the Company's financial statements from the day the acquisition closed.

 

10
 

 

The following table summarizes the estimated fair values of the assets acquired and liabilities assumed at the date of Acquisition. The allocation of the purchase price to the fair value of net assets acquired has been based on appraisals of the assets acquired:

 

  At
February 15, 2012
 
Working Capital Items     
Cash and cash equivalents  $892,294 
Prepaid expenses and other   764,551 
Accounts payable and accrued liabilities   (447,343)
Notes payable   (2,580,399)
Subtotal—Working Capital Items   829,103 
Long-lived Assets:     
Property & Equipment     
Land   549,310 
FFE and Equipment   6,782,345 
Subtotal—long-lived assets   7,331,655 
Total value of acquisition  $5,960,758 
Value of acquisition allocated to additional paid-in capital  $2,696,455 
Value of acquisition allocated to minority interest  $3,264,303 

 

In accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, the assets and liabilities acquired are carried over at their historical value because the transaction occurred between related parties.

 

Had the Acquisition taken place on January 1, 2012, results of operations would have reflected the following pro forma amounts for the six months ended June 30, 2012:

 

  Three Months Ended
June 30, 2012
   Six Months Ended
June 30, 2012
 
Revenues  $31,057   $51,942 
Operating income   889,477    1,592,183 
Net loss  $(85,420)  $(1,540,241)

 

The principal differences between reported amounts and the pro forma amounts result from elimination of January’s operations since they were not part of the consolidated Company.

On February 29, 2012, Power-Save Energy Company, a Utah corporation, entered into an agreement to acquire all of the capital stock of Bluestone S.A. On March 9, 2012, pursuant to a Share Exchange Agreement with Bluestone, S.A., a Chilean corporation, and the shareholders of Bluestone, S.A., the Company acquired 100% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of Bluestone from Bluestone Shareholders.  In exchange for the Bluestone Stock, the Company issued 60,000,000 shares of its Common Stock to the Bluestone Shareholders.  As a result of closing the transaction, Bluestone Shareholders now hold approximately 96.7% of the Company’s issued and outstanding Common Stock.  For accounting purposes, the Bluestone acquisition is treated as a reverse acquisition with Bluestone treated as the acquirer and the Company as the acquired party. As a result, the business and financial information included in the report is the business and financial information of Bluestone prior to March 9, 2012 and the combined entity after March 9, 2012. The Company will undergo a full valuation of the assets, liabilities, and contingencies acquired from Bluestone within the next twelve months, and will adjust any balances accordingly.

 

The Company’s current primary business is the operations of Bluestone. Bluestone is a pre-revenue exploration stage Chilean company with a 60% equity ownership of Sulfatos Chile. Sulfatos Chile owns the Anico Copper Mine and is building a copper sulfate production facility specializing in the production of the highest quality food-grade copper sulfate.

 

Note 5 - Fixed Assets

 

The Company acquired fixed assets with a fair value of $7,331,655 in the Bluestone acquisition in March 2012. See Note 4- Bluestone SA Acquisition. The fixed assets are being amortized over their remaining useful lives.

 

Note 6 - Debt

 

From November 2011 through February 2012, Angelique de Maison, a director of the Company, provided a total of $1.1m in working capital advances in the form of an unsecured demand loan with no interest and no set terms of repayment to Santa Teresa Minerals. In February 2012 these advances were assigned to Bluestone, of which Ms. de Maison is a major shareholder, and were applied to the purchase of Santa Teresa Minerals’ 60% equity interest in Sulfatos Chile by Bluestone in February 2012. After the acquisition of Bluestone by Lustros in March 2012, Lustros became responsible for repayment of this debt to Ms. de Maison. In April 2012 Ms. de Maison assigned her right to repayment of $1,000,000 of this loan to two third parties who agreed to apply this debt to the purchase of 5,000,000 shares of Common Stock. In June 2012 Ms. de Maison agreed to apply the remaining $100,000 balance due under the loan to the purchase of 181,818 shares of Common Stock.

 

From February through June 2012, Suprafin, Ltd. (“Suprafin”) provided a total of $1,316,393 in unsecured demand loans with no interest and no set terms of repayment which was applied to the purchase of Sulfatos Chile. Zirk Engelbrect, Chief Executive Officer and a director of the Company, is an officer of Suprafin, Ltd. In May 2012 Suprafin elected to apply $429,000 of these loans toward the purchase of 100,000 shares of Preferred Stock in the Company. In June 2012 $680,000 of these loans were repaid. $207,393 remained outstanding under these loans at June 30, 2012.

 

$135,000 remains due to Santa Teresa Minerals for the purchase of Sulfatos Chile as a note payable. See Note 3- Sulfatos Chile.

 

In April 2012 Sulfatos Chile borrowed 40,500,223 CLP or approximately $79,454 from Banco de Chile for working capital purposes. This is a 12 month loan due on March 31, 2013 at 13.43% interest with payments beginning on October 1, 2012. The balance due under this loan at June 30, 2012 is 41,438,863 CLP or approximately $81,296.

 

Sulfatos Chile currently owes 186,011,000 CLP or approximately $364,921 for the last payment of the land acquired in the first quarter of 2011.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations (MD&A) contains forward-looking statements that involve known and unknown risks, significant uncertainties and other factors that may cause our actual results, levels of activity, performance or achievements to be materially different from any future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements expressed, or implied, by those forward-looking statements.  You can identify forward-looking statements by the use of the words may, will, should, could, expects, plans, anticipates, believes, estimates, predicts, intends, potential, proposed, or continue or the negative of those terms.  These statements are only predictions. In evaluating these statements, you should consider various factors which may cause our actual results to differ materially from any forward-looking statements.  Although we believe that the exceptions reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements.  Therefore, actual results may differ materially and adversely from those expressed in any forward-looking statements.  We undertake no obligation to revise or update publicly any forward-looking statements for any reason.

 

CORPORATE HISTORY

 

Power-Save Energy Company is the successor corporation of Mag Enterprises, Inc., a Utah corporation incorporated on July 30, 1980. On September 10, 1993, an Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation was filed to change the name from Mag Enterprises, Inc. to Safari Associates, Inc. On September 12, 2006, an Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation was filed to change the name from Safari Associates, Inc. to Power-Save Energy Company (the “Company”).

 

On February 29, 2012, Power-Save Energy Company, a Utah corporation, entered into an agreement to acquire all of the capital stock of Bluestone S.A. On March 9, 2012, pursuant to a Share Exchange Agreement (the “Share Exchange Agreement”) with Bluestone, S.A., a Chilean corporation (“BLUESTONE”), and the shareholders of BLUESTONE, S.A. (“BLUESTONE Shareholders’), the Company acquired 100% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock of Bluestone (the “Bluestone Stock”) from Bluestone Shareholders. In exchange for the Bluestone Stock, the Company issued 60,000,000 shares of its Common Stock to the Bluestone Shareholders. As a result of closing the transaction, Bluestone Shareholders now hold approximately 96.7% of the Company’s issued and outstanding Common Stock. For accounting purposes, the Bluestone acquisition is treated as a reverse acquisition with Bluestone treated as the acquirer and the Company as the acquired party. As a result, the business and financial information included in the report is the business and financial information of Bluestone prior to March 9, 2012 and the combined entity after March 9, 2012.

 

Through Bluestone SA we now have a majority interest in Sulfatos Chile. Our Sulfatos Chile subsidiary specializes in the production of the highest quality food-grade copper sulfate. Copper ore is processed in its copper sulfate processing plant in Puerto Oscuro, Chile. The ore is extracted from the Sulfatos Chile owned 1,325 hectare Anica copper mine or bought from local artisanal miners. Our copper sulfate facility is expected to begin processing 5,000 tons of material per month in August 2012. The current plant capacity of 15,000 tons per month will occur upon receiving permits for unlimited production which we expect to receive in April of 2013. Cash flow from this first phase is expected to begin in October of 2012 and will fund future expansion for an additional 25,000 ton processing plant.

 

NO COMPARABLE INFORMATION

 

There is no relevant comparable historic financial information for the current quarter ended June 30, 2012 and the six months ended June 30, 2011, as Bluestone SA’s operations did not begin until January 2012. Therefore, limited information is provided in our Results of Operations section below.

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Three and Six Months Ended June 30, 2012

 

Revenue for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 was $31,057 and $51,943, respectively for the sale of copper and copper sulfate. Gross profit for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 was $31,057 and $51,943 respectively. We expect revenues to increase significantly after the full scale launch of our copper sulfate production facility in Q4 2012.

 

Operating expenses for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 was $1,253,443 and $1,743,342, respectively. Operating expenses were primarily associated with the operations of Sulfatos Chile in the ordinary course of business as well as legal and accounting expenses required by a public company.

 

Due to the losses during the period the Company has not recorded a provision for income taxes. The Company will carry back any net operating loss to recover taxes paid in prior periods.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES.

 

As of June 30, 2012 the current liabilities exceeded the current assets by $1,104,523. Cash for the period ended June 30, 2012 was $29,034 primarily from the sales of stock and intercompany loans.

 

Cash Requirements

 

During the next twelve months, the Company plans to satisfy its cash requirements by income from operations as well as additional equity financing and contributions from its current principal shareholders and other investors. The Company intends to undertake additional private placements of its securities in order to raise future development and operating capital. The Company depends upon capital to be derived from contributions from its principal shareholders and future financing activities such as subsequent offerings of its securities. There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in raising the capital it requires through the sale of its securities.

 

ITEM 3.  QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

We are a smaller reporting company as defined by Rule 12b-2 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and are not required to provide the information under this item.

 

ITEM 4.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Disclosure controls and procedures are controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by our company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to our management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, or persons performing similar functions, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our management carried out an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of our Principal Executive Officer and Principal Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures pursuant to Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 ("Exchange Act").

 

Based on this evaluation, our principal executive and principal financial and accounting officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) were effective as of June 30, 2012.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

On March 9, 2012 Trisha Malone was appointed as the Chief Financial Officer of the Company.

 

Louis Fox resigned as Chief Financial Officer. The resignation was not the result of any disagreement with us on any matter relating to our operations, policies or practices.

 

The Company is not required by current SEC rules to include, and does not include, an auditor's attestation report. The Company's registered public accounting firm has not attested to Management's reports on the Company's internal control over financial reporting.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION

 

ITEM 1.  LEGAL PROCEEDINGS

 

On March 18, 2011, 142 Cross Street, LLC filed a Complaint against the Company in San Luis Obispo Superior Court, seeking damages for breach of contract. The suit arises from a dispute surrounding a commercial real estate lease. This case was settled.

 

On September 21, 2011, Chris Frye filed a lawsuit against the Company in California Superior Court alleging, among other things, breach of contract surrounding the Company’s CBS Television solar project. Chris Frye also filed a cross-complaint in a New Mexico action filed by Uni-Rac involving similar subject matter. The Company vigorously denies all the allegations and insists the lawsuit is an attempt on Chris Frye’s part to evade paying an outstanding invoice owed to the Company. The California Suit has since been dismissed in its entirety and the cross-complaint in New Mexico has been dismissed as well. Chris Frye and Power-Save have joined forces to combat Uni-Rac in the New Mexico portion of the case, which is reduced to a dispute of less than $200,000 regarding the racking supplied in relation to the CBS project.1

 

Other than the foregoing, we know of no material, existing or pending legal proceedings against our company, nor are we involved as a plaintiff in any material proceeding or pending litigation. There are no proceedings in which our director, officer or any affiliates, or any registered or beneficial shareholder, is an adverse party or has a material interest adverse to our interest.2
