MASS PETROLEUM INC.

(An Exploration Stage Company)

Notes to the Financial Statements

May 31, 2012

(Expressed in US dollars)

(unaudited)

 

1.     Nature of Operations and Continuance of Business

MASS Petroleum Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on February 14, 2006 under the name XTOL Energy Inc. On October 11, 2007, the Company changed its name to LAUD Resources Inc. On June 23, 2008, the Company changed its name from LAUD Resources Inc. to MASS Petroleum Inc. The Company is an exploration stage company, as defined by Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 915, Development Stage Entities.The Company’s principal business is the acquisition and exploration of oil and gas properties located in the United States.

These financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies the Company will continue to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has not generated significant revenues since inception and has never paid any dividends and is unlikely to pay dividends or generate earnings in the immediate or foreseeable future. The continuation of the Company as a going concern is dependent upon the continued financial support from its shareholders, the ability of the Company to obtain necessary equity financing to continue operations, and the attainment of profitable operations. As at May 31, 2012, the Company has a working capital deficit of $580,720, and has accumulated losses totaling $9,724,600 since inception. These factors raise substantial doubt regarding the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. These financial statements do not include any adjustments to the recoverability and classification of recorded asset amounts and classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

2.     Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

(a)     Basis of Presentation

These financial statements and related notes are presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, and are expressed in US dollars. The Company’s fiscal year-end is November 30.

(b)     Interim Financial Statements

These interim unaudited financial statements have been prepared on the same basis as the annual financial statements and in the opinion of management, reflect all adjustments, which include only normal recurring adjustments, necessary to present fairly the Company’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the periods shown. The results of operations for such periods are not necessarily indicative of the results expected for a full year or for any future period.

(c)     Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with US generally accepted accounting principles 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 financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions related to the valuation of long-lived assets and oil and gas properties, stock-based compensation and deferred income tax asset valuation allowances. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially and adversely from the Company’s estimates. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results, future results of operations will be affected.

(d)     Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers all highly liquid instruments with maturity of three months or less at the time of issuance to be cash equivalents.

2.       Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

(e)     Loss Per Share

The Company computes loss per share in accordance with ASC 260, Earnings per Share. ASC 260 requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share (“EPS”) on the face of the income statement. Basic EPS is computed by dividing the loss available to common shareholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method and convertible preferred stock using the if-converted method. In computing diluted EPS, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants. Diluted EPS excludes all dilutive potential shares if their effect is anti-dilutive.

(f)      Comprehensive Loss

ASC 220, Comprehensive Income, establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive loss and its components in the financial statements. As at May 31, 2012 and 2011, the Company has no items that represent a comprehensive loss and, therefore, has not included a schedule of comprehensive loss in the financial statements.

(g)     Oil and Gas Properties

The Company utilizes the full-cost method of accounting for petroleum and natural gas properties.  Under this method, the Company capitalizes all costs associated with acquisition, exploration, and development of oil and natural gas reserves, including leasehold acquisition costs, geological and geophysical expenditures, lease rentals on undeveloped properties and costs of drilling of productive and non-productive wells into the full cost pool on a country-by-country basis. When the Company obtains proven oil and gas reserves, capitalized costs, including estimated future costs to develop the reserves proved and estimated abandonment costs, net of salvage, will be depleted on the units-of-production method using estimates of proved reserves. The costs of unproved properties are not amortized until it is determined whether or not proved reserves can be assigned to the properties. Until such determination is made, the Company assesses annually whether impairment has occurred, and includes in the amortization base drilling exploratory dry holes associated with unproved properties.

The Company applies a ceiling test to the capitalized cost in the full cost pool. The ceiling test limits such cost to the estimated present value, using a ten percent discount rate, of the future net revenue from proved reserves based on current economic and operating conditions. Specifically, the Company computes the ceiling test so that capitalized cost, less accumulated depletion and related deferred income tax, do not exceed an amount (the ceiling) equal to the sum of: The present value of estimated future net revenue computed by applying current prices of oil and gas reserves (with consideration of price changes only to the extent provided by contractual arrangements) to estimated future production of proved oil and gas reserves as of the date of the latest balance sheet presented, less estimated future expenditures (based on current cost) to be incurred in developing and producing the proved reserves computed using a discount factor of ten percent and assuming continuation of existing economic conditions; plus the cost of property not being amortized; plus the lower of cost or estimated fair value of unproven properties included in the costs being amortized; less income tax effects related to differences between the book and tax basis of the property. For unproven properties, the Company excludes from capitalized costs subject to depletion, all costs directly associated with the acquisition and evaluation of the unproved property until it is determined whether or not proved reserves can be assigned to the property. Until such a determination is made, the Company assesses the property at least annually to ascertain whether impairment has occurred. In assessing impairment the Company considers factors such as historical experience and other data such as primary lease terms of the property, average holding periods of unproved property, and geographic and geologic data. The Company adds the amount of impairment assessed to the cost to be amortized subject to the ceiling test.

2.       Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

(h)     Asset Retirement Obligations

The Company follows the provisions of ASC 410, Asset Retirement and Environmental Obligations, which establishes standards for the initial measurement and subsequent accounting for obligations associated with the sale, abandonment or other disposal of long-lived tangible assets arising from the acquisition, construction or development and for normal operations of such assets.  As at May 31, 2012 and November 30, 2011, the Company did not have any asset retirement obligations.

(i)       Property and Equipment

Property and equipment consists of computer hardware, and is recorded at cost and amortized on a straight-line basis over its estimated life of three years.

(j)      Revenue Recognition

The Company recognizes oil and gas revenue when production is sold at a fixed or determinable price, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred and title has transferred, and collectibility is reasonably assured.

(k)     Long-lived Assets

In accordance with ASC 360, Property, Plant, and Equipment, the Company tests long-lived assets or asset groups for recoverability when events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying amount may not be recoverable. Circumstances which could trigger a review include, but are not limited to: significant decreases in the market price of the asset; significant adverse changes in the business climate or legal factors; accumulation of costs significantly in excess of the amount originally expected for the acquisition or construction of the asset; current period cash flow or operating losses combined with a history of losses or a forecast of continuing losses associated with the use of the asset; and current expectation that the asset will more likely than not be sold or disposed significantly before the end of its estimated useful life. Recoverability is assessed based on the carrying amount of the asset and its fair value which is generally determined based on the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use and the eventual disposal of the asset, as well as specific appraisal in certain instances. An impairment loss is recognized when the carrying amount is not recoverable and exceeds fair value.

(l)       Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measures

ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. ASC 820 establishes a fair value hierarchy based on the level of independent, objective evidence surrounding the inputs used to measure fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. ASC 820 prioritizes the inputs into three levels that may be used to measure fair value:

Level 1

Level 1 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2

Level 2 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets); or model-derived valuations in which significant inputs are observable or can be derived principally from, or corroborated by, observable market data.

2.     Summary of Significant Accounting Policies (continued)

(l)       Financial Instruments and Fair Value Measures (continued)

Level 3

Level 3 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

The Company’s financial instruments consist principally of cash, amounts receivable, accounts payable, amounts due to related parties, and loans payable. Pursuant to ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures and ASC 825, Financial Instruments, the fair value of our cash equivalents is determined based on “Level 1” inputs, which consist of quoted prices in active markets for identical assets. The Company believes that the recorded values of all of the other financial instruments approximate their current fair values because of their nature and respective maturity dates or durations.

The Company has transactions in both Canada and the United States, which results in exposure to market risks from changes in foreign currency rates.  The Company’s function currency is the United States dollar. The financial risk is the risk to the Company’s operations that arise from fluctuations in foreign exchange rates and the degree of volatility of these rates.  Currently, the Company does not use derivative instruments to reduce its exposure to foreign currency risk.

(m)   Foreign Currency Translation

The Company’s functional and reporting currency is the United States dollar. Transactions may occur in a foreign currency and management has adopted ASC 830, Foreign Currency Translation Matters. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated using the exchange rate prevailing at the balance sheet date. Non-monetary assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated at rates of exchange in effect at the date of the transaction. Average monthly rates are used to translate revenues and expenses. Gains and losses arising on translation or settlement of foreign currency denominated transactions or balances are included in the determination of income.

(n)     Stock-based Compensation

The Company records stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation and ASC 505, Equity Based Payments to Non-Employees, which requires the measurement and recognition of compensation expense based on estimated fair values for all share-based awards made to employees and directors, including stock options. 

ASC 718 requires company to estimate the fair value of share-based awards on the date of grant using an option-pricing model.  The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model as its method of determining fair value.  This model is affected by the Company’s stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of subjective variables.  These subjective variables include, but are not limited to the Company’s expected stock price volatility over the term of the awards, and actual and projected employee stock option exercise behaviours.  The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as an expense in the statement of operations over the requisite service period.

All transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measurable.

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

Forward Looking Statements

This report on Form 10-Q contains certain forward-looking statements.  All statements other than statements of historical fact are “forward-looking statements” for purposes of these provisions, including any projections of earnings, revenues, or other financial items; any statements of the plans, strategies, and objectives of management for future operation; any statements concerning proposed new products, services, or developments; any statements regarding future economic conditions or performance; statements of belief; and any statement of assumptions underlying any of the foregoing. Such forward-looking statements are subject to inherent risks and uncertainties, and actual results could differ materially from those anticipated by the forward-looking statements.

Business Overview

MASS Petroleum Inc. (“MASS”, “we”, “us”) is a start up oil and gas exploration company.  We were incorporated in the State of Nevada on February 14, 2006, under the name of XTOL Energy Inc.  We operated under this name until October 10, 2007 at which time we changed our name to LAUD Resources Inc.  On June 23, 2008 we changed our name to MASS Petroleum Inc. and on July 11, 2008, the new symbol for the quotation of our common stock on the Over the Counter Bulletin board became “MASP.OB”.  We do not have any subsidiaries.  Our principal office is located at Suite 507 – 700 West Pender Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, V6C 1G8.  Our telephone number is (604) 688-6380.  Our fiscal year end is November 30.

We have incurred losses since our inception.  We rely upon the sale of our securities to fund our operations.  We have generated limited revenues of $24,227 from our 2.34% non-operated interest in three operating wells in Kingfisher County, Oklahoma since our inception to May 31, 2012.

We intend to build our business through the acquisition of producing and exploration stage oil and natural gas wells, interests and leases.  Our strategy is to combine the secure and reliable revenue source of operated and non-operated interests from producing oil wells with the higher risk development of oil and gas exploration projects.  For the next 12 months (beginning August 2012), we plan to purchase additional operated and non-operated interests in producing oil and natural gas properties, to acquire additional exploration stage properties and carry out an exploration program on the acquired properties.  We are not involved in any bankruptcy, receivership or similar proceedings.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of May 31, 2012, we had cash of $724 and a working capital deficit of $580,720 .  Our accumulated deficit from inception to May 31, 2012 was  $9,724,600.  Our net loss of $5,665,398 for the six months ended May 31, 2012 was mostly funded by funds raised from debt and equity financing since inception.  For the six months ended May 31, 2012, we raised $3,000 in funds through the sale of our equities, compared to $nil raised through equity financing during the same period in 2011.  During the six months ended May 31, 2012 our cash position decreased by $4,847.

We used net cash of $22,330 in operating activities for the six months ended May 31, 2012 compared to net cash of $67,742 used in operating activities for the same period in 2011.  This decrease in cash used in operating activities was mainly due to an increase in accounts payable.

During the six months ended May 31, 2012 our monthly cash requirement was approximately $3,722 compared to $11,290 for the same period in 2011.  At May 31, 2012, we had cash of $724, which will cover our costs for less than 1 month according to our current monthly burn rate.

We expect to require approximately $1,000,000 in financing to continue our planned operation and exploration over the next year plus another $1,000,000 to cover our other operational expenses.

Our planned acquisition and exploration expenditures for oil and gas interests and properties over the next twelve months (beginning August 2012) are summarized as follows:

We intend to raise the $2,000,000 to fund our operations for the next 12 months from private placements, shareholder loans or possibly a registered public offering (either self-underwritten or through a broker-dealer) within the next few months.  If we are unsuccessful in raising enough money through future capital raising efforts, we may review other financing possibilities such as bank loans.  At this time we do not have any commitments from any broker-dealer to provide us with financing.

There is no assurance that any financing will be available or if available, on terms that will be acceptable to us.  We also may need additional financing to carry out our business plan.


Obtaining additional financing will be subject to a number of factors including market conditions, investor acceptance of our business plan, and investor sentiment.  These factors may make the timing, amount, terms and conditions of additional financing unattractive or unavailable to us.  If we cannot raise at least $2,000,000 we will have to significantly reduce our spending, delay or cancel planned activities or substantially change our current corporate structure.  In such an event, we intend to implement expense reduction plans in a timely manner.  However, these actions would have material adverse effects on our business, revenues, operating results, and prospects, resulting in a possible failure of our business.  We may need to obtain additional financing which may not be available, which could cause us to cease operations.

Results of Operations for the Six Months Ended May 31, 2012 Compared to the Same Period in 2011, and From Inception to May 31, 2012

We began to earn nominal revenues in February 2007 from our non-operated working interests in three producing wells.  We plan to purchase additional non-operated and operated working interests in existing oil and gas leases.

Revenues

We have generated $24,227 in revenues from our 2.34% non-operating interest in the Kingfisher property since February 14, 2006 (inception) to May 31, 2012.  We generated revenues of $1,017 for the six months ended May 31, 2012 compared to $1,874 for the six months ended May 31, 2011.

Net Loss

We incurred a net loss of $5,665,398 for the six months ended May 31, 2012 compared to our net loss of $77,822 for the six months ended May 31, 2011.  The increase in net loss was mainly due to  loss on settlement of debt.  Since February 14, 2006 (date of inception) to May 31, 2012, we have incurred a net loss of $9,724,600.

Expenses

Our total expenses for the six months ended May 31, 2012 were $55,933 compared to $71,221, for the same period in 2011.  The decrease in our expenses during 2012 was attributable to a decrease in our general and administrative expenses.  Our general and administrative expenses decreased by $14,173 from $68,415 for the six months ended May 31, 2011 compared to $54,242 for the six months ended May 31, 2012.  Our general and administrative expenses consist of professional fees, management and consulting fees, stock based compensation, bank charges, travel, meals and entertainment, rent, office maintenance, communications (cellular, internet, fax and telephone), courier, postage costs and office supplies.

Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended May 31, 2012 Compared to the Same Period in 2011

Revenues

We generated revenues of $572 for the three months ended May 31, 2012 compared to $1,072 for the three months ended May 31, 2011.

Net Loss

We incurred a net loss of  $5,627,831 for the three months ended May 31, 2012 compared to our net loss of $37,147 for the three months ended May 31, 2011.   The increase was mainly due to loss of settlement of debt .

Expenses

Our total expenses for the three months ended May 31, 2012 were $22,741 compared to $32,607, for the same period in 2011.  The decrease in our expenses during 2012 was attributable to a decrease in our general and administrative expenses.  Our general and administrative expenses decreased by $9,925 from $32,328 for the three months ended May 31, 2011 compared to $22,403 for the three months ended May 31, 2012.

Inflation

The amounts presented in the financial statements do not provide for the effect of inflation on our operations or financial position.  The net operating losses shown would be greater than reported if the effects of inflation were reflected either by charging operations with amounts that represent replacement costs or by using other inflation adjustments.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements


As of May 31, 2012, we had no off balance sheet transactions that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in our financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.


Critical Accounting Policies


The preparation of financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires us to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of net revenue and expenses in the reporting period.  We base our estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the recording of revenue, costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources.  The actual results experienced by us may differ materially and adversely from our estimates.  To the extent there are material differences between our estimates and the actual results, our future results of operations will be affected.

  

We believe the following are either (i) critical accounting policies that require us to make significant estimates or assumptions in the preparation of our financial statements or (ii) other key accounting policies that generally do not require us to make estimates or assumptions but may require us to make difficult or subjective judgments:


Oil and Gas Properties


The Company utilizes the full-cost method of accounting for petroleum and natural gas properties.  Under this method, the Company capitalizes all costs associated with acquisition, exploration and development of oil and natural gas reserves, including leasehold acquisition costs, geological and geophysical expenditures, lease rentals on undeveloped properties and costs of drilling of productive and non-productive wells into the full cost pool on a country by country basis.  When the Company obtains proven oil and gas reserves, capitalized costs, including estimated future costs to develop the reserves proved and estimated abandonment costs, net of salvage, will be depleted on the units-of-production method using estimates of proved reserves.  The costs of unproved properties are not amortized until it is determined whether or not proved reserves can be assigned to the properties.  Until such determination is made the Company assesses annually whether impairment has occurred, and includes in the amortization base drilling exploratory dry holes associated with unproved properties.

 

7                

             

The Company applies a ceiling test to the capitalized cost in the full cost pool.  The ceiling test limits such cost to the estimated present value, using a ten percent discount rate, of the future net revenue from proved reserves, based on current economic and operating conditions.  Specifically, the Company computes the ceiling test so that capitalized cost, less accumulated depletion and related deferred income tax, do not exceed an amount (the ceiling) equal to the sum of: (A) The present value of estimated future net revenue computed by applying current prices of oil and gas reserves (with consideration of price changes only to the extent provided by contractual arrangements) to estimated future production of proved oil and gas reserves as of the date of the latest balance sheet presented, less estimated future expenditures (based on current cost) to be incurred in developing and producing the proved reserves computed using a discount factor of ten percent and assuming continuation of existing economic conditions; plus (B) the cost of property not being amortized; plus (C) the lower of cost or estimated fair value of unproven properties included in the costs being amortized; less (D) income tax effects related to differences between the book and tax basis of the property. For unproven properties, the Company excludes from capitalized costs subject to depletion, all costs directly associated with the acquisition and evaluation of the unproved property until it is determined whether or not proved reserves can be assigned to the property.  Until such a determination is made, the Company assesses the property at least annually to ascertain whether impairment has occurred.  In assessing impairment the Company considers factors such as historical experience and other data such as primary lease terms of the property, average holding periods of unproved property, and geographic and geologic data.  The Company adds the amount of impairment assessed to the cost to be amortized subject to the ceiling test.


Revenue Recognition


The Company recognizes oil and gas revenue when production is sold at a fixed or determinable price, persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred and title has transferred, and collectability is reasonably assured.


Long-lived Assets


In accordance with ASC 360, “Property, Plant, and Equipment”, the Company tests long-lived assets or asset groups for recoverability when events or changes in circumstances indicate that their carrying amount may not be recoverable.  Circumstances which could trigger a review include, but are not limited to: significant decreases in the market price of the asset; significant adverse changes in the business climate or legal factors; accumulation of costs significantly in excess of the amount originally expected for the acquisition or construction of the asset; current period cash flow or operating losses combined with a history of losses or a forecast of continuing losses associated with the use of the asset; and current expectation that the asset will more likely than not be sold or disposed significantly before the end of its estimated useful life. Recoverability is assessed based on the carrying amount of the asset and its fair value which is generally determined based on the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use and the eventual disposal of the asset, as well as specific appraisal in certain instances.  An impairment loss is recognized when the carrying amount is not recoverable and exceeds fair value.


Stock-based Compensation


The Company records stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC 718, Compensation – Stock Compensation and ASC 505, Equity Based Payments to Non-Employees, which requires the measurement and recognition of compensation expense based on estimated fair values for all share-based awards made to employees and directors, including stock options.  

ASC 718 requires company to estimate the fair value of share-based awards on the date of grant using an option-pricing model.  The Company uses the Black-Scholes option pricing model as its method of determining fair value.  This model is affected by the Company’s stock price as well as assumptions regarding a number of subjective variables.  These subjective variables include, but are not limited to the Company’s expected stock price volatility over the term of the awards, and actual and projected employee stock option exercise behaviours.  The value of the portion of the award that is ultimately expected to vest is recognized as an expense in the statement of operations over the requisite service period.

All transactions in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measurable.
