GOLDEN GATE HOMES, INC.
(A DEVELOPMENT STAGE COMPANY)
NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)

NOTE 1 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements of Golden Gate Homes, Inc. (hereinafter referred to as 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 on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011 (the “Form 10-K”) filed with the SEC. 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  that  would  substantially  duplicate  the  disclosures contained  in  the  audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2011 as reported in  the  Form  10-K  have  been  omitted.

NOTE 2 – RENTAL GUARANTEE ADVANCES

The Company has eight properties being managed under its property management program.  The Company has provided rental guarantees for a period of one year for 7% of the purchase price of the property for six of these properties, two of which the Company advanced one-half of the amount of such guarantee to the purchasers.  These purchasers have agreed to reimburse the funds advanced for their rental guarantees from funds received from the rental of their properties over a period of 13.5 months for one property and 18 months for the other. At March 31, 2012, an aggregate of $13,311 was outstanding.  The Company reflects these advances on its balance sheet as loan advances.  The Company expects that the full amount of each advance of rental guarantee will be repaid completely based on the current rent amounts.  Of the four remaining properties, three have all been rented at prices higher than their respective rent guarantees, so there does not appear to be any liability to the Company unless the tenants fail to make their rent payments or terminate their leases.  With respect to the fourth property, the rental guarantee amount may create a liability approximately $1,000 higher than the expected property management fees expected, but lower than the collective property management fees of all of the rental properties.  Therefore, the Company has not reserved against any of these rent guarantees at this time, but may re-evaluate the accounting treatment of this minor liability at year end.  The other half of the funds for the rental guarantees were advanced by Premier Capital, the Company’s selling agent in Asia.  The Company collects the reimbursements from the purchasers on behalf of Premier Capital.  At March 31, 2012, the Company had collected $2,794 on behalf of Premier Capital but had not yet forwarded the funds.  These funds are reflected on the Company’s balance sheet as a current liability.
 
 
ITEM  2. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q includes forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section  21E  of  the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. We have based these forward-looking statements on our current expectations and projections about future events, and we assume no obligation to update any such forward-looking statements.  These forward-looking statements are subject to known and unknown risks, uncertainties and assumptions about us that may cause our actual results to be materially different from any future results expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements. In some cases, you can identify forward-looking  statements  by  terminology  such  as "may," "should," "could, ""would," "expect," "plan," "anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "continue," or the  negative  of  such  terms  or other similar expressions. Factors that might cause  our  future  results to differ from those statements include, but are not limited  to,  those  described  in  the  section  entitled "Risk Factors" of the Form 10-K.  The  following  discussion  should  be read in conjunction  with  our  condensed financial statements and related notes thereto included  elsewhere  in this report and with the section entitled "Risk Factors" of the Form 10-K.

OVERVIEW

The focus of Golden Gates Homes, Inc (the “Company”) is on marketing high-quality, distressed residential properties in certain US markets (currently in California and Florida) to international buyers (primarily from Asia) through exclusive selling agreements or consignment arrangements. In the event that the Company is successful in completing a major capital raising transaction, it will also consider purchasing similar assets for resale to the same target market.

In October 2009, the Company entered into an exclusive marketing agreement with Premier Capital, Ltd. (“Premier Capital”).  Management believes that Premier Capital is one of the most reputable international real estate consulting firms in Asia, and is highly regarded for selling international properties throughout China and other parts of Asia.  Premier Capital was founded in Hong Kong in 1988 and expanded into China in 1997.  It has offices in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen, the five Asian cities in which the Company markets properties.  Premier Capital also has offices in Australia, Singapore and New Zealand. 

Premier Capital acts as the Company’s agent in Hong Kong and mainland China to market properties that are approved by Premier Capital and for which the Company has obtained sales options or agreements (“Approved Properties”).  The Company pays the bulk of the expenses arising in connection with the marketing of Approved Properties in Hong Kong and China, although Premier Capital bears some of these expenses as well.  For its services, Premier Capital is paid a customary brokerage fee for Approved Properties sold in Hong Kong and China.

Premier Capital terminated the exclusive marketing agreement with the Company in April 2011, although it has stated that it will continue to work with the Company to sell the Company’s current inventory of property listings as well as future projects.  The Company is in discussions with Premier Capital about entering into an exclusive marketing agreement for another geographical market in the United States, and expects to complete such an agreement on a non-exclusive agreement upon the completion of the current sales program.  The Company will also seek additional selling agents to market its properties, although there can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in finding additional selling agents.  In as much as Premier Capital has agreed to continue to work with the Company, the Company does not believe that the termination of the exclusive marketing agreement with Premier Capital will have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations.
 
RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

Comparison of Three Months Ended March 31, 2012 and 2011

 
For the three months ended March 31, 2012, we had a net loss of $8,398, compared to net income of $9,445 for the three months ended March 31, 2011.  The Company did not close any sales during the quarter and accordingly, all of the revenues generated during the quarter were from the Company’s asset management activities.  For the three months ended March 31, 2012, we incurred $9,152 of general and administrative expenses as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2010, when we incurred $6,930 of general and administrative expenses.
 
CHANGES IN FINANCIAL CONDITION
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company's cash position as of March 31, 2012 is $42,309.  As of March 31, 2012, the Company has outstanding payables of $28,808.  The future of the Company is dependent upon the Company’s ability to consummate sales of properties and the development of new business opportunities. Capital constraints currently limit the Company’s ability to purchase residential properties for resale to international clients, and consequently the Company is restricted to selling agreements and consignment arrangements. Currently, the Company is out of contract with the developers with whom the Company had entered into such agreements, although one of these developers is allowing the Company to market certain of its properties to its international clients for resale. The Company is seeking to enter into additional selling agreements and consignment arrangements for residential properties that will have lower sales prices than those it has previously sold to minimize the need for prospective international purchasers to obtain financing. The Company has identified certain properties that fit its criteria, but has not entered into any definitive agreements. There can be no assurances that the Company will enter into any such agreements. Absent new agreements, the Company will be unable to generate future revenues beyond the income derived from asset management fees.
The Company has taken numerous steps to conserve cash. We have closed our shared office in Napa and eliminated our full-time employees However, given the Company’s current cash position, it may be difficult for the Company to enter into any new agreements to market properties to its international clients without obtaining additional funding.

The Company can make no assurances that any additional financing will be available to it when needed or, if available, that it can be obtained on commercially reasonable terms.

To conserve on the Company's capital requirements, the Company may issue shares of its common stock to pay certain expenses.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

Other than contractual obligations incurred in the normal course of business, we do not have any off-balance sheet financing arrangements or liabilities, guarantee contracts, retained or contingent interests  in transferred assets or any obligation arising out of a material variable interest in an unconsolidated entity. We do not have any majority-owned subsidiaries.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.

Market risk is a broad term for the risk of economic loss due to adverse changes in the fair value of a financial instrument. These changes may be the result of various factors, including interest rates, foreign exchange rates, commodity prices and/or equity prices. We are exposed to market risk from changes in interest rates and foreign currency exchange rates. Our exposure to interest rate risk is limited to interest income sensitivity for working capital funds placed in a money market account.  The effect of interest rate changes does not pose significant market risk to us.  Also, we are exposed to foreign currency exchange rates whereby the strengthening of the US currency could make it more expensive for our foreign purchasers to buy our US properties.  We do not currently hedge against interest rate or currency risks.  The effect of other changes, such as commodity prices and/or equity prices, does not pose significant market risk to us.

 
ITEM 4T. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

We  carried  out  an  evaluation,  under the supervision of our Chief Executive Officer  and  Chief  Financial  Officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls  and  procedures  pursuant to Rule 13a-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report. In the course of this evaluation, our management considered the material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting discussed below. Based on that evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer has concluded that such disclosure controls and procedures were operating effectively as of March 31, 2012.
 
CHANGES IN INTERNAL CONTROL OVER FINANCIAL REPORTING
 
There  were  no  changes  in  our  internal  controls  over  financial reporting in connection with the evaluation required by Rule 13a-15(d) under the Exchange Act that occurred during the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form  10-Q that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over  financial  reporting.
