Our forward-looking statements include, but are not limited to, statements regarding our or our management’s expectations, hopes, beliefs, intentions or strategies regarding the future. In addition, any statements that refer to projections, forecasts or other characterizations of future events or circumstances, including any underlying assumptions, are forward-looking statements. The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “may,” “might,” “plan,” “possible,” “potential,” “predict,” “project,” “should,” “would” and similar expressions may identify forward-looking statements, but the absence of these words does not mean that a statement is not forward-looking.

There can be no assurance that future developments affecting us will be those that we have anticipated. These forward-looking statements involve a number of risks, uncertainties (some of which are beyond our control) or other assumptions that may cause actual results or performance to be materially different from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. These risks and uncertainties include, but are not limited to, those factors described in this Quarterly Report in the section entitled "Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations" and in our Annual Report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 1, 2012 in the section entitled "Risk Factors." Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should any of our assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary in material respects from those projected in these forward-looking statements.

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Note 1.       Interim Financial Information, Organization, Business Operations and Significant Accounting Policies

 

Basis of Presentation

 

Cullen Agricultural Holding Corp.’s (the “Company”, “we”, “us” or “our”) accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by GAAP for complete condensed consolidated interim financial statements. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2012. In addition, the December 31, 2011 balance sheet data was derived from the audited consolidated financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by GAAP. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements, in the opinion of management, include all adjustments necessary for a fair presentation. All such adjustments are of a normal recurring nature.

 

We are a development stage company and to date have not generated any revenue. These unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes there to for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 filed on March 1, 2012. The accounting policies used in preparing these unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements are consistent with those described in the December 31, 2011 audited consolidated financial statements.

 

Organization and Nature of Operations

 

Cullen Agricultural Holding Corp. was incorporated in Delaware on August 27, 2009. We are a development stage company. Our principal focus is to use our intellectual property in forage and animal sciences to improve agricultural yields. To date, we have not generated any revenue and will not do so until we have sufficient funds to implement our business plan.

 

We were formed as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Triplecrown Acquisition Corp. (“Triplecrown”), a blank check company. CAT Merger Sub, Inc. (“Merger Sub”), a Georgia corporation, was incorporated as our wholly-owned subsidiary on August 31, 2009. We were formed in order to allow Triplecrown to complete a business combination (the “Merger”) with Cullen Agricultural Technologies, Inc. (“Cullen Agritech”), as contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Reorganization (the “Merger Agreement”), dated as of September 4, 2009, as amended, among Triplecrown, the Company, Merger Sub, Cullen Agritech and Cullen Inc. Holdings Ltd. (“Cullen Holdings”). Cullen Agritech was formed on June 3, 2009. Cullen Agritech’s primary operations are conducted through Natural Dairy Inc. (“Natural Dairy”), a wholly owned subsidiary of Cullen Agritech. Cullen Holdings is an entity controlled by Eric J. Watson, our Chief Executive Officer, Secretary, Chairman of the Board and Treasurer and, prior to the Merger, was the holder of all of the outstanding common stock of Cullen Agritech.

 

Pursuant to the Merger, (i) Triplecrown merged with and into the Company with the Company surviving as the new publicly-traded corporation and (ii) Merger Sub merged with and into Cullen Agritech with Cullen Agritech surviving as a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.  As a result of the Merger, the former security holders of Triplecrown and Cullen Agritech became the security holders of the Company.  Thus, the Company became a holding company, operating through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Cullen Agritech.  The Merger was consummated on October 22, 2009.

 

Principles of Consolidation

 

The condensed consolidated interim financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiary, Cullen Agritech, including its wholly owned subsidiary, Natural Dairy. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Note 1.     Organization, Business Operations and Significant Accounting Policies, continued

 

Cash

 

The Company considers all highly liquid short-term investments purchased with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. These investments are carried at cost, which approximates fair value. The Company held no cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011. At times during the periods ended March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company had cash deposits in excess of the maximum amounts insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation insurance limits. At March 31, 2012 cash is held at one financial institution.

 

Property, Plant and Equipment

 

Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost, net of accumulated depreciation. The Company charges repairs and maintenance items to expense, while major improvements and betterments are capitalized.

 

Depreciation and amortization is provided on the straight-line method over the following estimated useful lives of the assets:

 

Buildings 15 years
Machinery and equipment 5 – 10 years
Transportation equipment 5 years
Land improvements 15 years

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of condensed consolidated interim financial statements in conformity with U. S. generally accepted accounting principles (“GAAP”) requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the condensed consolidated interim financial statements and the reported amounts of expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Long-Lived Assets

 

The Company accounts for its long-lived assets in accordance with   Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 360 “Plant, Property and Equipment,” for purposes of determining and measuring impairment of its long-lived assets other than goodwill. The Company’s policy is to review the value assigned to its long lived assets to determine if they have been permanently impaired by adverse conditions which may affect the Company whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount may not be recoverable.  If the Company identifies a permanent impairment such that the carrying amount of the Company’s long lived assets is not recoverable using the sum of an undiscounted cash flow projection, the impaired asset is adjusted to its estimated fair value, based on an estimate of future discounted cash flows which becomes the new cost basis for the impaired asset.  Considerable management judgment is necessary to estimate undiscounted future operating cash flows and fair values and, accordingly, actual results could vary significantly from such estimates.

NOTES TO THE UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Note 1.     Organization, Business Operations and Significant Accounting Policies, continued

 

Earnings Per Share

 

The Company follows the provisions of FASB ASC 260, “Earnings Per Share” (“ASC 260”). In accordance with ASC 260, earnings per common share amounts (“Basic EPS”) are computed by dividing earnings by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Earnings per common share amounts, assuming dilution (“Diluted EPS”), gives effect to dilutive options, warrants, and other potential common stock outstanding during the period. ASC 260 requires the presentation of both Basic EPS and Diluted EPS on the face of the condensed consolidated interim statements of operations. The effect of the Merger has been given retroactive application in the EPS calculation. At March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, there were 74,000,000 warrants outstanding that were not included in the calculation of diluted EPS because the effects of these securities would have been anti-dilutive.

 

Basic earnings per share is calculated using the average number of common shares outstanding and diluted earnings per share is computed on the basis of the average number of common shares outstanding plus the effect of outstanding warrants using the “treasury stock method.”

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with FASB ASC 740, "Income Taxes" ("ASC 740"). ASC 740 requires an asset and liability approach for financial accounting and reporting for income taxes and establishes for all entities a minimum threshold for financial statement recognition of the benefit of tax positions, and requires certain expanded disclosures. The provision for income taxes is based upon income or loss after adjustment for those permanent items that are not considered in the determination of taxable income. Deferred income taxes represent the tax effects of differences between the financial reporting and tax basis of the Company's assets and liabilities at the enacted tax rates in effect for the years in which the differences are expected to reverse. The Company evaluates the recoverability of deferred tax assets and establishes a valuation allowance when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Management makes judgments as to the interpretation of the tax laws that might be challenged upon an audit and cause changes to previous estimates of tax liability. In management's opinion, adequate provisions for income taxes have been made. If actual taxable income by tax jurisdiction varies from estimates, additional allowances or reversals of reserves may be necessary.

 

At March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011, deferred taxes primarily consist of deferred tax assets for net operating loss carryforwards. The Company does not believe at this time that it will utilize the net operating loss carryforwards in the future, and accordingly has recorded a valuation allowance of 100% of the deferred tax assets at March 31, 2012 and December 31, 2011.

 

The Company has identified its federal tax return and its state tax return in Georgia as "major" tax jurisdictions. Based on the Company's evaluation, it has been concluded that there are no significant uncertain tax positions requiring recognition in the Company's condensed consolidated interim financial statements. The evaluation was performed for tax years of 2009, 2010 and 2011 which are open for tax authority review. The Company believes that its income tax positions and deductions will be sustained on audit and does not anticipate any adjustments that will result in a material change to its financial position or results of operations.

 

The Company’s policy for recording interest and penalties associated with tax audits is to record such items as a component of income tax expense.  There were no amounts accrued for penalties and interest for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 or the period from June 3, 2009 (inception) through March 31, 2012.  The Company does not expect its uncertain tax position to change during the next twelve months.  Management is currently unaware of any issues under review that could result in significant payments, accruals or material deviations from its position.

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

 

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with our Condensed Consolidated Interim Financial Statements and footnotes thereto contained in this report.

 

Overview

 

We are a development stage company. We conduct our operations through our wholly-owned subsidiary, Cullen Agricultural Technologies Inc. (“Cullen Agritech”). Cullen Agritech conducts its operations primarily through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Natural Dairy Inc. (“Natural Dairy”). To date, we have not generated any revenue and will not do so until we have sufficient funds to implement our business plan described below.

 

Our principal focus is to use our intellectual property in forage and animal sciences to improve agricultural yields. The Company was formed to develop, adapt and implement grazing-based farming systems in regions of the world where the geophysical and climatic conditions are suitable for a pasture-based model. While the potential for the pasture or grazing model is significant in many of the world’s developed and developing economies, the systems are highly specific and require significant adaptation and modification to be successful. We have identified the global dairy industry as a primary opportunity in which our systems can be applied to improve yields on land and drive cost-base efficiencies. We believe that cost savings of up to 40-50% are achievable in the long term. Further, we believe the high cost structure, which is employed by over 95% of milk producers in the U.S. and supported by government subsidies, will help to maintain a floor to milk prices in the U.S. and provide us with long term margin protection. By having direct access to a domestic market, we believe our business plan provides a unique opportunity to invest directly into food production while limiting earnings volatility linked to foreign exchange exposure, typically associated with returns from commodity production in exporting countries, such as New Zealand. In addition, we believe the potential opportunity to vertically integrate, while maintaining control of the supply chain, provides a further opportunity to reduce volatility and maximize profitability.

 

We were incorporated in Delaware on August 27, 2009.  We were formed in order to allow Triplecrown Acquisition Corp. (“Triplecrown”), a blank check company, to complete a business combination (the “Merger”) with Cullen Agritech, as contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Reorganization, dated as of September 4, 2009, as amended, among us, Triplecrown, CAT Merger Sub, Inc. (“Merger Sub”), Cullen Agritech and Cullen Inc. Holdings Ltd. (“Cullen Holdings”). Prior to the Merger, we were a wholly owned subsidiary of Triplecrown, Merger Sub was our wholly owned subsidiary and Cullen Holdings was the sole stockholder of Cullen Agritech. Pursuant to the Merger, (i) Triplecrown merged with and into the Company with the Company surviving as the new publicly-traded corporation and (ii) Merger Sub merged with and into Cullen Agritech with Cullen Agritech surviving as the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary. As a result of the Merger, the former security holders of Triplecrown and Cullen Agritech became our security holders and we became a public holding company, operating through Cullen Agritech.

 

Strategic Alternatives

 

We have been in the process of attempting to obtain land development financing backed by the property we own and operate to support our working capital needs and implement our business plan. However, due to the recent performance of similar types of farming operations in the region, as well as the general economic downturn, financial institutions have been unwilling to provide such financing. As a result, we have been unable to obtain the necessary funding to support the implementation of our business plan at this time. Accordingly, we explored all financing and strategic alternatives available to us, including disposing of or leasing portions of our land in order to continue to support our working capital needs. In 2011 and 2010, the Company disposed of approximately 2,600 acres of land. On March 5, 2012, we entered into a Sales Contract with a buyer to lease the Company’s remaining 1,035 acres of land for the remainder of the 2012 crop year for the sum of $76,000 and to sell to the buyer the land for a purchase price of $1,524,000. This land constitutes the last of the Company’s property which we had planned to use to deploy our pasture based dairy and beef business plan. It is our intention to either seek additional financing to allow us to implement our pasture based dairy and beef business plan, or to seek alternative opportunities available to us unrelated to our business plan in an effort to maximize shareholder value. To this end, the Company has in the past had, and may in the future have, discussions with potential merger candidates wishing to become publicly traded.   There is no assurance that the Company will be successful in any of such efforts.  If the Company is unable to secure additional financing or find another alternative, the Company will not have sufficient capital to implement its business plan and may be forced to suspend all operations until such time as capital or another alternative is available to it.

Additionally, we have reduced our number of employees and curtailed operations in order to reduce operating expenses.

 

Results of Operations and Financial Condition

 

We are a development stage company. Since October 22, 2009, our activities have been primarily focused on raising capital to fund our business plan and the sale of land to meet our working capital requirements and repay our outstanding debt. Prior to October 22, 2009 we and our wholly-owned subsidiary were “shell companies” and conducted no business operations and did not own or lease any real estate or other property. Our activities during this time were limited to our organization, the preparation and filing with the SEC of a Registration Statement on Form S-4 and other matters related to the Merger. To date, we have not generated any revenue.

 

Results of Operations

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2012, we had a net loss of $111,338. Our expenses of $117,540 for three months ended March 31, 2012 consisted primarily of legal, accounting and consulting fees, payroll and employee related expenses, and other general corporate and administrative expenses of $11,525, $67,673, $8,515, and $29,827, respectively.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2011, we had a net loss of $179,659.

For the period from June 3, 2009 (inception) through March 31, 2012, we had a net loss of $4,604,601. We did not generate any revenues during this period and are a development stage company. Our expenses of $2,697,457 for the period from June 3, 2009 (inception) through March 31, 2012 consisted primarily of legal, accounting and consulting fees of $802,027 as well as payroll and employee related expenses of $531,917 and other general corporate and administrative expenses of $1,363,513.

 

Additionally, upon the closing of the Merger, we issued to Cullen Holdings a promissory note in an initial amount of $6,853,918. During the three months ended March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011 and the period from June 3, 2009 (inception) through March 31, 2012, we incurred interest expense of $-, $11,710, and $456,135, respectively, related to this promissory note. We incurred interest expense-related party of $221 and $287 for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and March 31, 2011, respectively and $1,941 for the period from June 3, 2009 (inception) through March 31, 2012.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2012, we had other income of $6,795 related to lease income of the 1,035 acres of land the Company owns, as well as a $372 provision for income tax. For the three months ended March 31, 2011, we had other expense, net of $36,786 related to losses related to beef operations, rental income and losses related to calf deaths, as well as a $327 provision for income tax.

 

For the period from June 3, 2009 (inception) through March 31, 2012, we had other expenses, net of $1,901,805 related to lease income, note payable interest expense related to tractor and a mortgage payable to a related party, legal settlement recovery, calf deaths, loss from beef grazing operations, the sale of timber, corn and hay, loss from the sale of land and impairment loss on property, plant and equipment and a $5,339 provision for income tax.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

During the period from June 3, 2009 (inception) through March 31, 2012, we did not have any sources of revenue and incurred a net loss of $4,604,601. As of March 31, 2012, we had $1,003,686 available cash and working capital of $913,061.

 

14
 

 

Off-Balance Sheet Financing Arrangements

 

We have no obligations, assets or liabilities which would be considered off-balance sheet arrangements. We do not participate in transactions that create relationships with unconsolidated entities or financial partnerships, often referred to as variable interest entities, which would have been established for the purpose of facilitating off-balance sheet arrangements.

 

We have not entered into any off-balance sheet financing arrangements, established any special purpose entities, guaranteed any debt or commitments of other entities, or acquired any non-financial assets.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Our significant accounting policies are described in Note 1 to the unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements. However certain accounting policies are particularly important to the portrayal of financial position and results of operations and require the application of significant judgments by management. In applying those policies, management used its judgment to determine the appropriate assumptions to be used in determination of certain estimates. Our accounting policy will be to use estimates based on terms of existing contracts, observance of trends in the industry and information available from outside sources, as appropriate. 

 

Management does not believe that any recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting standards if currently adopted would have a material effect on the unaudited condensed consolidated interim financial statements.

 

ITEM 4.          CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports we file with the SEC is accumulated and communicated to management, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure and is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. As required by Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the Exchange Act, our chief executive officer and treasurer (our principal executive and principal financial and accounting officer) carried out an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2012.

 

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 March 31, 2012.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting identified in connection with the evaluation required by paragraph (d) of Exchange Act Rules 13a-15 or 15d-15 that occurred during our last fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
