NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

Organization
 
American Strategic Minerals Corporation (“the Company”), formerly Verve Ventures, Inc., was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on February 23, 2010.  The Company intended to provide waste removal and disposal services to corporate and individual clients in the United Kingdom. On December 7, 2011, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada in order to change its name to “American Strategic Minerals Corporation” from “Verve Ventures, Inc.”, and change the Company’s authorized capital to 200,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, and 50,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share. On August 1, 2012, the shareholders holding a majority of the Company’s voting capital voted in favor of (i) changing the name of the Company to “Fidelity Property Group, Inc.” (the “Name Change”) and (ii) the adoption the 2012 Equity Incentive Plan and reserving 10,000,000 shares of common stock for issuance thereunder (the “2012 Plan”).  The Board of Directors of the Company approved the Name Change and the adoption of the 2012 Plan on August 1, 2012.  During June 2012, the Company decided to discontinue its exploration and potential development of uranium and vanadium minerals business and focus its activities exclusively on its new business segment, which is in the business of acquiring, renovating, and selling real estate properties. The Company’s Board of Directors determined the name “Fidelity Property Group, Inc.” better reflects the long-term strategy and identity of the Company going forward.  The Company has not yet filed an amendment to its Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of Nevada.

The Company is in the business of acquiring, renovating, and selling real estate properties (primarily residential in nature). The Company intends to seek to sell its real estate holdings within 6 months from the date of purchase.

The Company’s objectives include the following:

•      To purchase distressed single family homes, principally within Southern California, and renovate, and market its properties for resale and;

•     To purchase distressed multi-unit residential real estate and to renovate and operate as income producing property, generating cash flow and long-term capital appreciation.

On January 26, 2012, the Company had entered into a Share Exchange Agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) with American Strategic Minerals Corporation, a Colorado corporation (“Amicor”) and the shareholders of Amicor (the “Amicor Shareholders”).  Upon closing of the transaction contemplated under the Exchange Agreement (the “Share Exchange”), on January 26, 2012, the Amicor Shareholders transferred all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Amicor to the Company in exchange for an aggregate of 10,000,000 shares of the common stock of the Company.  The Share Exchange caused Amicor to become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.  Additionally, as further consideration for entering into the Exchange Agreement, certain Amicor Shareholders received ten-year warrants to purchase an aggregate of 6,000,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock with an exercise price of 0.50 per share (the “Share Exchange Warrants”).  Prior to acquisition by the Company, Amicor owned certain mining and mineral rights.
 
Amicor, formerly Nuclear Energy Corporation, was incorporated under the laws of the State of Colorado on April 30, 2011.  Amicor owns mining leases of federal unpatented mining claims and leases private lands in the states of Utah and Colorado for the purpose of exploration and potential development of uranium and vanadium minerals.

Prior to the Share Exchange, the Company was a shell company with no business operations.

The Share Exchange was accounted for as a reverse-merger and recapitalization. Amicor was the acquirer for financial reporting purposes and the Company was the acquired company. Consequently, the assets and liabilities and the operations reflected in the historical financial statements prior to the Share Exchange were those of Amicor and was recorded at the historical cost basis of Amicor, and the consolidated financial statements after completion of the Share Exchange included the assets and liabilities of the Company and Amicor, historical operations of Amicor and operations of the Company from the closing date of the Share Exchange.

On June 11, 2012, the Company terminated various leases related to its uranium mining claims (the “Claims”) consisting of: Cutler King Property (3 unpatented mining claims); “Centennial-Sun Cup” (42 unpatented mining claims); “Bull Canyon” (2 unpatented mining claims); “Martin Mesa” (51 unpatented mining claims); “Avalanche/Ajax” (8 unpatented mining claims) and “Home Mesa” (9 unpatented mining claims).  The Company had acquired the Claims through the acquisition of Amicor on January 26, 2012. The decision by the Company to terminate these leases followed changes in management and direction of the Company, a review  of the Uranium market, and the timing and costs expected to pursue the business. On June 11, 2012 the Company effectively ceased efforts to continue its mining exploration activities.

NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS (continued)
 
On June 11, 2012, the Company entered into a rescission agreement (the “Rescission Agreement”) with Amicor, and the Amicor Shareholders.  Each of the Amicor Shareholders had previously received shares of the Company’s common stock (and certain of the Amicor Shareholders also received warrants to purchase shares of the Company’s common stock) (collectively, the Shareholder Securities”) pursuant to the Exchange Agreement.   Each of the Amicor Shareholders, with the exception of Mike Thompson, agreed to return the Shareholder Securities to the Company for cancellation and to enter into joint mutual releases with the Company.  Furthermore, pursuant to the terms of the Rescission Agreement, George Glasier resigned from his position as President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Company; Kathleen Glasier resigned from her position as Secretary of the Company, Michael Moore resigned from his position as Chief Operating Officer and Vice President of the Company and each of David Andrews and Kyle Kimmerle resigned from their position as a director of the Company.  As a result of the foregoing, the Company cancelled 9,806,667 shares of the Company’s common stock and 4,800,000 warrants and terminated the mining leases entered into with the Amicor Shareholders. Additionally, the Company paid an aggregate of $132,000 to Amicor Shareholders upon the execution of the Rescission Agreement.

Under the terms of the Rescission Agreement, the Company’s employment agreement with Mr. Glasier was terminated and  all options, warrants and rights to acquire any shares of the Company’s common stock, whether vested or unvested, were terminated as of the date of the Rescission Agreement.  Additionally, under the terms of the Rescission Agreement, the Company’s lease for certain office space, dated as of January 26, 2012 with Silver Hawk Ltd., an entity owned and controlled by George Glasier and Kathleen Glasier, was terminated.
 
On June 11, 2012, the Company and Pershing Gold Corporation (“Pershing”) effected the exercise of the Option Agreement executed in January 2012, through the assignment of Pershing’s wholly owned subsidiary, Continental Resources Acquisition Sub, Inc. (“Acquisition Sub”), (see Note 5). As a result of the assignment, Acquisition Sub became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company and the Company acquired all of Pershing’s uranium assets.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation

The condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America ("US GAAP") and present the financial statements of the Company  and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. In the preparation of consolidated financial statements of the Company, intercompany transactions and balances were eliminated. All adjustments (consisting of normal recurring items) necessary to present fairly the Company's financial position as of June 30, 2012, and the results of operations and cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2012 have been included. The results of operations for the six months ended June 30, 2012 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. The accounting policies and procedures employed in the preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements have been derived from the audited financial statements of the Company for the period ended December 31, 2011, which are contained in Form 8-K as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on January 31, 2012. The consolidated balance sheet as of December 31, 2011 was derived from those financial statements.

As reflected in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements for the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company had a net loss of $4,546,378 and $655,775 of net cash used in operations. At June 30, 2012, the Company had a working capital of $3,403,735. Additionally, at June 30, 2012, the Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $4.7 million. However, of the $4,546,378 of net loss for the six months ended June 30, 2012, $3,834,585 primarily consisted of non cash expenses such as stock based compensation to certain employees and consultants and impairment of mining rights. As of June 30, 2012, the Company has cash for a total of approximately $3.3 million. Based on the Company’s historical use of cash and other mitigating factors, management believes that the Company has met its expected needs required to support its operations for the next 12 months.

Development Stage Company

The Company is presented as a development stage company. Activities during the development stage include organizing the business, raising capital and acquiring real estate properties.  The Company is a development stage company with no revenues and no profits. The Company has not commenced significant operations and, in accordance with ASC Topic 915 “Development Stage Entities”, is considered a development stage company.

The Company considers all highly liquid debt instruments and other short-term investments with maturity of three months or less, when purchased, to be cash equivalents.  The Company maintains cash and cash equivalent balances at one financial institution that is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. The Company’s account at this institution is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation ("FDIC") up to $250,000. In addition to the basic insurance deposit coverage, the FDIC is providing temporary unlimited coverage for non-interest bearing transaction accounts through December 31, 2012. For the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company has reached bank balances exceeding the FDIC insurance limit of approximately $3,060,000. To reduce its risk associated with the failure of such financial institution, the Company evaluates at least annually the rating of the financial institution in which it holds deposits.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

Use of Estimates and Assumptions

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates made by management include, but are not limited to, the assumptions used to calculate fair value of warrants granted, common stock issued for services, and common stock issued in connection with an option agreement and the valuation of mineral rights.

Marketable Securities

Marketable securities that the Company invests in publicly traded equity securities and are generally restricted for sale under Federal securities laws. The Company’s policy is to liquidate securities received when market conditions are favorable for sale. Since these securities are often restricted, the Company is unable to liquidate them until the restriction is removed. Pursuant to ASC Topic 320, “Investments –Debt and Equity Securities” the Company’s marketable securities have a readily determinable and active quoted price, such as from NASDAQ, NYSE Euronext, the Over the Counter Bulletin Board, and the OTC Markets Group.

Available for sale securities are carried at fair value, with changes in unrealized gains or losses are recognized as an element of comprehensive income based on changes in the fair value of the security.  Once liquidated, realized gains or losses on the sale of marketable securities available for sale are reflected in the net income (loss) for the period in which the security was liquidated.

Comprehensive Income

Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2011-05 amends FASB Codification Topic 220 on comprehensive income (1) to eliminate the current option to present the components of other comprehensive income in the statement of changes in equity, and (2) to require presentation of net income and other comprehensive income (and their respective components) either in a single continuous statement or in two separate but consecutive statements. These amendments do not alter any current recognition or measurement requirements in respect of items of other comprehensive income. The amendments in this Update are to be applied prospectively.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” (“ASC 820”), for assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis. ASC 820 establishes a common definition for fair value to be applied to existing generally accepted accounting principles that require the use of fair value measurements, establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosure about such fair value measurements. The adoption of ASC 820 did not have an impact on the Company’s financial position or operating results, but did expand certain disclosures.

ASC 820 defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Additionally, ASC 820 requires the use of valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. These inputs are prioritized below:

 
Level 1:
Observable inputs such as quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
   
 
Level 2:
Observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data
   
 
Level 3:
Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data, which require the use of the reporting entity’s own assumptions.

The Company classifies the investments in marketable securities available for sale as Level 3, adjusted for the effect of restriction. The securities are restricted and cannot be readily resold by the Company absent a registration of those securities under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”) or the availabilities of an exemption from the registration requirements under the Securities Act. As these securities are often restricted, the Company is unable to liquidate them until the restriction is removed. Unrealized gains or losses on marketable securities available for sale are recognized as an element of comprehensive income based on changes in the fair value of the security. Once liquidated, realized gains or losses on the sale of marketable securities available for sale are reflected in our net income for the period in which the security was liquidated.

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, prepaid expenses, note receivable, accounts payable, and accrued expenses, approximate their estimated fair market value based on the short-term maturity of this instrument.

In addition, FASB ASC 825-10-25 “Fair Value Option” was effective for January 1, 2008. ASC 825-10-25 expands opportunities to use fair value measurements in financial reporting and permits entities to choose to measure many financial instruments and certain other items at fair value.

Prepaid Expenses

Prepaid expenses of $75,000 and $20,000 at June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively, consist primarily of costs paid for future services which will occur within a year. Prepaid expenses include prepayments in cash of public relation services and consulting which are being amortized over the terms of their respective agreements.

NOTE 2 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

Real estate held for sale

Real estate held for sale consists of a residential property located in Southern California. Real estate held for sale is initially recorded at the lower of cost or estimated fair market value less the estimated cost to sell. After acquisition, costs incurred relating to the development and improvements of property are capitalized to the extent they do not cause the recorded value to exceed the net realizable value, whereas costs relating to holding and disposition of the property are expensed as incurred. After acquisition, real estate held for sale is analyzed periodically for changes in fair values and any subsequent write down is charged to impairment losses on real estate properties. Whenever events or changes in circumstances suggest that the carrying amount may not be recoverable, management assesses the recoverability of its real estate by comparing the carrying amount with its fair value.  The process involved in the determination of fair value requires estimates as to future events and market conditions.  This estimation process may assume that the Company has the ability to dispose of its real estate properties in the ordinary course of business based on management’s present plans and intentions.  If management determines that the carrying value of a specific real estate investment is impaired, a write-down is recorded as a charge to current period operations.  The evaluation process is based on estimates and assumptions and the ultimate outcome may be different.  The Company did not consider it necessary to record any impairment charges of real estate held for sale at June 30, 2012.  As of June 30, 2012, real estate held for sale amounted to $254,016.

Income Taxes

Income taxes are accounted for under the asset and liability method in accordance with ASC 740, “Income Taxes”. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases as well as operating loss and tax credit carry forwards. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the periods in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance to the extent that the recoverability of the asset is unlikely to be recognized.

The Company follows ASC 740 rules governing uncertain tax positions, which provides guidance for recognition and measurement. This prescribes a threshold condition that a tax position must meet for any of the benefits of the uncertain tax position to be recognized in the financial statements. It also provides accounting guidance on derecognization, classification and disclosure of these uncertain tax positions.

Basic and Diluted Net Loss per Share

Net loss per common share is calculated in accordance with ASC Topic 260: Earnings Per Share (“ASC 260”). Basic loss per share is computed by dividing net loss by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. The computation of diluted net loss per share does not include dilutive common stock equivalents in the weighted average shares outstanding as they would be anti-dilutive. The Company has 2,700,000 stock warrants at June 30, 2012 and were excluded from the computation of diluted shares outstanding as they would have had an anti-dilutive impact on the Company’s net loss.

Impairment of Long-lived Assets

The Company accounts for the impairment or disposal of long-lived assets according to the ASC 360 “Property, Plant and Equipment”.  The Company continually monitors events and changes in circumstances that could indicate that the carrying amounts of long-lived assets, including mineral rights, may not be recoverable.  Recoverability of assets to be held and used is measured by a comparison of the carrying amount of an asset to the estimated future net undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by the asset. When necessary, impaired assets are written down to estimated fair value based on the best information available. Estimated fair value is generally based on either appraised value or measured by discounting estimated future cash flows. Considerable management judgment is necessary to estimate discounted future cash flows. Accordingly, actual results could vary significantly from such estimates. The Company recognizes an impairment loss when the sum of expected undiscounted future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of the asset. The Company recorded an impairment charge in connection with its mineral rights of $1,256,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and has been included in loss from discontinued operations.

Stock-based Compensation

Stock-based compensation is accounted for based on the requirements of the Share-Based Payment Topic of ASC 718 which requires recognition in the consolidated financial statements of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments over the period the employee or director is required to perform the services in exchange for the award (presumptively, the vesting period). The ASC also requires measurement of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award based on the grant-date fair value of the award.

Pursuant to ASC Topic 505-50, for share-based payments to consultants and other third-parties, compensation expense is determined at the “measurement date.” The expense is recognized over the vesting period of the award. Until the measurement date is reached, the total amount of compensation expense remains uncertain. The Company initially records compensation expense based on the fair value of the award at the reporting date.

NOTE 5 - STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY (DEFICIT)

On November 25, 2011, the board of directors of the Company authorized a 1.362612612 for one forward split in the form of a dividend, whereby an additional 0.362612612 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, were issued for each one share of common stock held by each shareholder of record on December 9, 2011.  All share amounts have been adjusted to reflect the number of shares of common stock on a post-dividend/post-split basis.

On December 7, 2011, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of the State of Nevada in order to change the Company’s authorized capital to 200,000,000 shares of common stock from 75,000,000 shares, change the par value to $0.0001 per share from $.001 per share, and authorized new 50,000,000 shares of preferred stock, par value $0.0001 per share.

Common Stock

On January 26, 2012, the Company entered into the Exchange Agreement with Amicor and Amicor Shareholders (see Note 1).  Upon closing of the Share Exchange, on January 26, 2012, the Amicor Shareholders transferred all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of Amicor to the Company in exchange for an aggregate of 10,000,000 shares of the common stock of the Company. Additionally, as further consideration for entering into the Exchange Agreement, certain Amicor Shareholders received ten-year warrants to purchase an aggregate of 6,000,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock with an exercise price of 0.50 per share.

Immediately following the closing of the Share Exchange and a Private Placement of the Comapny's securities (described below), under an Agreement of Conveyance, Transfer and Assignment of Assets and Assumption of Obligations (the “Conveyance Agreement”), the Company transferred all of the pre-Share Exchange assets and liabilities to a newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, Verve Holdings, Inc. (“SplitCo”).  Pursuant to a stock purchase agreement, the Company transferred all of the outstanding capital stock of SplitCo to certain former shareholders of the Company in exchange for the cancellation of 4,769,144 (post-split) shares of the Company’s common stock that they owned (the “Split-Off”), with 7,500,000 (post split) shares of the Company’s common stock held by persons who acquired such shares prior to the Share Exchange remaining outstanding.  Accordingly, following the Split-Off, 7,500,000 shares will constitute as the Company’s “public float”.

On January 26, 2012, the Company sold 10,029,965  shares of  the Company’s common stock at a purchase price of $0.50 per share in a private placement to accredited investors, resulting in aggregate net proceeds to the Company of $4,993,965 (the “Private Placement”), which includes an aggregate of $100,000 advanced to Amicor for general working capital purposes prior to the closing of the Share Exchange which was converted into an aggregate of 200,000 shares of Common Stock in the Private Placement and an aggregate of $75,000 in debt owed in January 2012 for legal fees incurred by Amicor which was converted into an aggregate 150,000 shares of Common Stock in the Private Placement.  On January 30, 2012, the Company sold an additional 600,000 shares of Common Stock in the Private Placement with gross proceeds to the Company of $300,000 for total net proceeds to the Company of $5,293,965. In connection with these private placements, the Company paid legal fees of $21,000.

On January 26, 2012, contemporaneously with the Share Exchange, the Company also entered into an Option Agreement with Pershing pursuant to which the Company obtained the option (the “Option”) to acquire certain uranium exploration rights and properties held by Pershing for a purchase price of $10.00.  In consideration for issuance of the Option, the Company issued to Pershing (i) a $1,000,000 promissory note payable in installments upon satisfaction of certain conditions, expiring six months following issuance and (ii) 10 million shares of the Company’s Common Stock (collectively, the “Option Consideration”).  On January 26, 2012, Pershing held 26.65% of interest in the Company. David Rector and Joshua Bleak were appointed members of the Company’s board of directors. David Rector is a member of the board of Pershing and Joshua Bleak is the Chief Executive Officer and a director of Continental Resources Group, Inc. (a company which is one of the largest shareholders of Pershing).

NOTE 5 - STOCKHOLDERS' EQUITY (DEFICIT) (continued)

As of June 30, 2012, $930,000 of the principal amount of note has been paid. Under the terms of the note, the Company was required to pay the balance of the note upon completion of a private placement totaling $1 million or more on or before July 26, 2012. The $1.0 million private placement was not completed by that date thus the Company was not required to pay the final $70,000 due under the note and a total of $930,000 has been paid under the note. On June 11, 2012, the Company and Pershing effected the exercise of the Option, through the assignment of Pershing’s wholly owned subsidiary, Acquisition Sub, (see Note 1). As a result of the assignment, Acquisition Sub became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company and the Company acquired all of Pershing’s uranium assets. The Company recorded the 10 million shares at par value or $1,000. Pursuant to ASC 805-50-30-2 “Business Combinations”, the Company determined that if the consideration paid is not in the form of cash, the measurement may be based on either (i) the cost which is measured based on the fair value of the consideration given or (ii) the fair value of the assets (or net assets) acquired, whichever is more clearly evident and thus more reliably measurable.

The Company determined that the fair value of the net assets acquired was a better indicator thus more reliably measurable than the fair value of the common stock issued.

As a result, on June 11, 2012, the Company recorded the value of the Option Consideration amounting to $931,000 to mineral rights which was initially recorded as a deposit before the date of exercise as reflected in the first quarter of 2012.

In March 2012, the Company issued an aggregate of 3,888,889 shares of common stock in connection with the exercise of the 5,000,000 stock warrants on a cashless basis. The Company valued these common shares at par value (see Note – Common Stock Warrants).
 
On June 11, 2012, the Company cancelled a total of 9,806,667 shares of common stock and 4,800,000 warrants in connection with the Rescission Agreement (see Note 1). Upon the execution of the Rescission Agreement, the Company paid to Amicor Shareholders an aggregate of $132,000 and was recorded to additional paid in capital.
 
Common Stock Warrants

On January 26, 2012, the Company issued to certain Amicor Shareholders ten-year warrants to purchase an aggregate of 6,000,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock with an exercise price of 0.50 per share in connection with the Exchange Agreement (see Note 1).
 
The Company entered into consulting agreements with Melechdavid Inc. and GRQ Consultants, Inc., pursuant to which such consultants will provide certain services to the Company in consideration for which the Company sold to the consultants warrants to purchase an aggregate of 3,500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock with an exercise price of $0.50 per share (the “Consulting Warrants”).   The services provided by the consultants include introductions to banking relationships, consulting on strategic acquisitions and advice on capital restructuring.  The Consulting Warrants have a term of ten years and were exercisable on a cashless basis after twelve months if the shares of common stock underlying the Consulting Warrants are not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. In March 2012, the Company entered into a First Amendment to the warrant to purchase common stock (the "First Amendment") with such consultants to amend the cashless exercise terms of the warrants. The First Amendment provides for the exercise of the Consulting Warrants on a cashless basis immediately upon the execution of the First Amendment. In March 2012, the Company issued an aggregate of 2,722,222 shares of common stock in connection with the exercise of the 3,500,000 stock warrants on a cashless basis. The Company’s Chief Executive Officer is the President of Melechdavid Inc.

The Company issued warrants to purchase an aggregate of 2,700,000 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $0.50 per share to Joshua Bleak, David Rector, Stuart Smith and George Glasier, as directors of the Company (the “Director Warrants”). The Director Warrants have a term of ten years and are exercisable on a cashless basis after twelve months if the shares of common stock underlying the Director Warrants are not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission.  The Director Warrants issued to Mr. Smith, Mr. Rector and Mr. Bleak vest in three equal annual installments with the first installment vesting one year from the date of issuance.  The Director Warrant issued to Mr. Glasier is immediately exercisable. In March 2012, the Company issued an aggregate of 1,166,667 shares of common stock to Mr. Glasier in connection with the exercise of the 1,500,000 stock warrants on a cashless basis. Such 1,166,667 shares were cancelled on June 11, 2012 in connection with the Rescission Agreement (see Note 1).
 
The Company also issued a ten-year warrant to purchase an aggregate of 300,000 shares of Common Stock with an exercise price of $0.50 per share to Daniel Bleak, an outside consultant to the Company, which vests in three equal annual installments with the first installment vesting one year from the date of issuance (the “Additional Consulting Warrant”).  The Additional Consulting Warrant is exercisable on a cashless basis after twelve months in the absence of an effective registration statement covering the resale of the shares of Common Stock underlying the Additional Consulting Warrant.  Daniel Bleak is the father of Joshua Bleak, a member of the Company’s board of directors.  The Company did not enter into a consulting agreement with Mr. Bleak.

The 6,500,000 warrants were valued on the grant date at approximately $0.50 per warrant or a total of $3,242,850 using the Black-Scholes option pricing model used for this valuation had the following assumptions: stock price of $0.50 per share (based on the per share price of the Company’s common stock in the most recent private placements), volatility of 191% (estimated using volatilities of similar companies), expected term of approximately ten years, and a risk free interest rate of 1.96%. For the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company recorded stock-based compensation and stock-based consulting expense of $831,500 and $1,766,938, respectively.

Item 2.  Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.

This Report on Form 10-Q and other written and oral statements made from time to time by us may contain so-called “forward-looking statements,” all of which are subject to risks and uncertainties.  Forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of words such as “expects,” “plans,” “will,” “forecasts,” “projects,” “intends,” “estimates,” and other words of similar meaning.  One can identify them by the fact that they do not relate strictly to historical or current facts.  These statements are likely to address our growth strategy, financial results and product and development programs.  One must carefully consider any such statement and should understand that many factors could cause actual results to differ from our forward looking statements.  These factors may include inaccurate assumptions and a broad variety of other risks and uncertainties, including some that are known and some that are not.  No forward looking statement can be guaranteed and actual future results may vary materially.

Information regarding market and industry statistics contained in this Report is included based on information available to us that we believe is accurate.  It is generally based on industry and other publications that are not produced for purposes of securities offerings or economic analysis.  We have not reviewed or included data from all sources, and cannot assure investors of the accuracy or completeness of the data included in this Report.  Forecasts and other forward-looking information obtained from these sources are subject to the same qualifications and the additional uncertainties accompanying any estimates of future market size, revenue and market acceptance of products and services.  We do not assume any obligation to update any forward-looking statement.  As a result, investors should not place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements.

Recent Events
 
During June 2012, we decided to discontinue our exploration and potential development of uranium and vanadium minerals business. We will focus our activities exclusively on our new business segment, which is in the business of acquiring, renovating, and selling real estate properties (primarily residential in nature) located within the areas of Southern California. We intend to sell such real estate within 6 months from the date of purchase.
 
The Company’s objectives include the following:

•     To purchase distressed single family homes, principally within Southern California, and renovate, and market its properties for resale and;

•     To purchase distressed multi-unit residential real estate, and to renovate and operate as income producing property, generating cash flow and long-term capital appreciation.

On August 1, 2012, the shareholders holding a majority of the Company’s voting capital voted in favor of (i) changing the name of the Company to “Fidelity Property Group, Inc.” and (ii) the adoption the 2012 Plan and reserving 10,000,000 shares of common stock for issuance thereunder.  The Board of Directors of the Company approved the Name Change and the adoption of the 2012 Plan on August 1, 2012.  The Company’s Board of Directors determined the name “Fidelity Property Group, Inc.” better reflects the long-term strategy and identity of the Company going forward.  We have not yet filed an amendment to our Articles of Incorporation with the Secretary of State of Nevada.
 
On June 11, 2012, we entered into the Rescission Agreement with Amicor and the Amicor Shareholders.   Each of the Amicor Shareholders received shares of our common stock   (and certain Amicor Shareholders also received warrants to purchase shares of our common stock) (collectively, the Shareholder Securities”) pursuant to the Exchange Agreement dated as January 26, 2012.  Pursuant to the terms of the Rescission Agreement, each of the Amicor Shareholders, with the exception of Mike Thompson, agreed to return the Shareholder Securities to us for cancellation and to enter into joint mutual releases with us.  Furthermore, pursuant to the terms of the Rescission Agreement, George Glasier resigned from his position as our President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman; Kathleen Glasier resigned from her position as our Secretary, Michael Moore resigned from his position as our Chief Operating Officer and Vice President and each of David Andrews and Kyle Kimmerle resigned from their position as our directors.  As a result of the foregoing, we cancelled 9,806,667 shares of our common stock and 4,800,000 warrants and terminated the mining leases entered into with certain of the Shareholders. Additionally, we paid an aggregate of $132,000 to Amicor Shareholders upon the execution of the Rescission Agreement.

Under the terms of the Rescission Agreement, the employment agreement with Mr. Glasier was terminated and Mr. Glasier acknowledged that all options, warrants and rights to acquire any shares of our common stock, whether vested or unvested, were terminated as of the date of the Rescission Agreement.

On June 11, 2012, the Company and Pershing effected the exercise of the Option entered into in January 2012, through the assignment of Pershing’s wholly owned subsidiary, Acquisition Sub As a result of the assignment, Acquisition Sub became a wholly owned subsidiary ours and we acquired all of Pershing’s uranium assets.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities. On an on-going basis, we evaluate our estimates based on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

Management believes the following critical accounting policies affect the significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of the financial statements.

Principles of Consolidation

The condensed consolidated financial statements are prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America and present the financial statements of the Company and our wholly-owned subsidiary. In the preparation of our consolidated financial statements, intercompany transactions and balances are eliminated.

Development Stage Companies

We are a development stage company. Activities during the development stage include organizing the business, raising capital and acquiring real estate properties.  We are a development stage company with no revenues and no profits.  We have not commenced significant operations and, in accordance with ASC Topic 915 “Development Stage Entities”, is considered a development stage company.

Use of Estimates and Assumptions

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States 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. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates made by management include, but are not limited to, the assumptions used to calculate fair value of warrants granted, common stock issued for services, and common stock issued in connection with an option agreement.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

We adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures”, for assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis. ASC 820 establishes a common definition for fair value to be applied to existing US GAAP that require the use of fair value measurements which establishes a framework for measuring fair value and expands disclosure about such fair value measurements.
 
 
24

 

 
ASC 820 defines fair value as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. Additionally, ASC 820 requires the use of valuation techniques that maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. These inputs are prioritized below:
 
  
Level 1:
Observable inputs such as quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities
     
 
Level 2:
Observable market-based inputs or unobservable inputs that are corroborated by market data
 
 
 
 
Level 3:
Unobservable inputs for which there is little or no market data, which require the use of the reporting entity’s own assumptions.

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheet for cash, prepaid expenses, accounts payable, and accrued expenses approximate their estimated fair market value based on the short-term maturity of this instrument.

In addition, FASB ASC 825-10-25 “Fair Value Option” was effective for January 1, 2008. ASC 825-10-25 expands opportunities to use fair value measurements in financial reporting and permits entities to choose to measure many financial instruments and certain other items at fair value.

Stock-based Compensation

Stock-based compensation is accounted for based on the requirements of the Share-Based Payment Topic of ASC 718 which requires recognition in the consolidated financial statements of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments over the period the employee or director is required to perform the services in exchange for the award (presumptively, the vesting period). The ASC also requires measurement of the cost of employee and director services received in exchange for an award based on the grant-date fair value of the award.

Pursuant to ASC Topic 505-50, for share-based payments to consultants and other third-parties, compensation expense is determined at the “measurement date.” The expense is recognized over the vesting period of the award. Until the measurement date is reached, the total amount of compensation expense remains uncertain. The Company initially records compensation expense based on the fair value of the award at the reporting date.

Real Estate Held for Sale

Real estate held for sale consists of a residential property located in Southern California. Real estate held for sale is initially recorded at the lower of cost or estimated fair market value less the estimated cost to sell. After acquisition, costs incurred relating to the development and improvements of property are capitalized to the extent they do not cause the recorded value to exceed the net realizable value, whereas costs relating to holding and disposition of the property are expensed as incurred. After acquisition, real estate held for sale is analyzed periodically for changes in fair values and any subsequent write down is charged to impairment losses on real estate properties. Whenever events or changes in circumstances suggest that the carrying amount may not be recoverable, management assesses the recoverability of its real estate by comparing the carrying amount with its fair value.  The process involved in the determination of fair value requires estimates as to future events and market conditions.  This estimation process may assume that we have the ability to dispose of its real estate properties in the ordinary course of business based on management’s present plans and intentions.  If management determines that the carrying value of a specific real estate investment is impaired, a write-down is recorded as a charge to current period operations.  The evaluation process is based on estimates and assumptions and the ultimate outcome may be different.
 
 
25

 

 
Long-Lived Assets

We review for impairment whenever events or circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of assets may not be recoverable, pursuant to guidance established in ASC 360-10-35-15, “Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets”. We recognize an impairment loss when the sum of expected undiscounted future cash flows is less than the carrying amount of the asset. The amount of impairment is measured as the difference between the asset’s estimated fair value and its book value.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

Other accounting standards that have been issued or proposed by the FASB that do not require adoption until a future date are not expected to have a material impact on the financial statements upon adoption.

Discontinued Operations

During late June 2012, we decided to discontinue our exploration and potential development of uranium and vanadium minerals business and prior periods have been restated in our consolidated financial statements and related footnotes to conform to this presentation. We will focus our activities exclusively on our new business segment, which is in the business of acquisition, renovating, and selling real estate properties.

Net loss

We reported a net loss of $1,586,499 or ($(0.04) per common shares - basic and diluted) and $4,546,378  or $(0.13) per common share - basic and diluted, respectively, for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and a net loss of $1,537 for the period from inception (April 30, 2011) to June 30, 2011.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Liquidity is the ability of a company to generate funds to support its current and future operations, satisfy its obligations, and otherwise operate on an ongoing basis. At June 30, 2012, we had a cash balance of approximately $3.3 million and working capital of approximately $3.4 million. We have been funding our operations through the sale of our common stock through private placements for operating capital purposes.

We currently have no material commitments for capital expenditures. We may be required to raise additional funds, particularly if we are unable to generate positive cash flow as a result of our operations.   We estimate that based on current plans and assumptions, that our available cash is sufficient to satisfy our cash requirements under our present operating expectations for up to 12 months. We presently have no other alternative source of working capital. We may not have sufficient working capital to fund the expansion of our operations and to provide working capital necessary for our ongoing operations and obligations after 12 months. We have not generated revenues to support our daily operations from the inception of development stage. We may need to raise significant additional capital to fund our future operating expenses, pay our obligations, and grow our Company. We do not anticipate we will be profitable in 2012.  Therefore our future operations will be dependent on our ability to secure additional financing.  Financing transactions may include the issuance of equity or debt securities, obtaining credit facilities, or other financing mechanisms. The trading price of our common stock and a downturn in the U.S. equity and debt markets could make it more difficult to obtain financing through the issuance of equity or debt securities. Even if we are able to raise the funds required, it is possible that we could incur unexpected costs and expenses, fail to collect significant amounts owed to us, or experience unexpected cash requirements that would force us to seek alternative financing. Furthermore, if we issue additional equity or debt securities, stockholders may experience additional dilution or the new equity securities may have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing holders of our common stock. The inability to obtain additional capital may restrict our ability to grow and may reduce our ability to continue to conduct business operations. If we are unable to obtain additional financing, we will likely be required to curtail our marketing and development plans and possibly cease our operations.

Operating Activities

We have not generated positive cash flows from operating activities. For the six month period ended June 30, 2012, net cash flows used in operating activities was $655,775 and was primarily attributable to our net loss of $4,546,378, adjusted for the add-back of non-cash items such as stock based compensation of $2,598,438, impairment of mining rights and assets of discontinued operations of $1,286,248 and other income of $125,000, and total changes in assets and liabilities of $56,018 primarily attributable to an increase in prepaid expenses of $71,600, and increase in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $103,703.

Investing Activities

Net cash flows used in investing activities were $712,074 in connection with acquisition of mineral rights of $325,000, investment in note receivable of $133,058 and acquisition of real estate property of $254,016 during the six months ended June 30, 2012.

Financing Activities

Net cash flows provided by financing activities were $4,553,991 for the six months ended June 30, 2012. We received net proceeds from the sale of our stocks of $5,768,965 offset by payment on notes payable of $1,082,974 and payments of $132,000 in connection with the rescission agreement.

Off-balance Sheet Arrangements

We have not entered into any other financial guarantees or other commitments to guarantee the payment obligations of any third parties. We have not entered into any derivative contracts that are indexed to our shares and classified as stockholder’s equity or that are not reflected in our consolidated financial statements. Furthermore, we do not have any retained or contingent interest in assets transferred to an unconsolidated entity that serves as credit, liquidity or market risk support to such entity.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

Not required for smaller reporting companies.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures.

We maintain “disclosure controls and procedures,” as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, management recognized that disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the disclosure controls and procedures are met. Additionally, in designing disclosure controls and procedures, our management necessarily was required to apply its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible disclosure controls and procedures. The design of any disclosure controls and procedures also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.

               With respect to the quarterly period ended June 30, 2012, under the supervision and with the participation of our management, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness of the design and operations of our disclosure controls and procedures. Based upon this evaluation, the Company’s management has concluded that certain disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of June 30, 2012 due to the Company’s limited internal resources and lack of ability to have multiple levels of transaction review. However, to the extent possible, we will implement procedures to assure that the initiation of transactions, the custody of assets and the recording of transactions will be performed by separate individuals. We believe that the foregoing steps will remediate the significant deficiency identified above, and we will continue to monitor the effectiveness of these steps and make any changes that our management deems appropriate.

Management is in the process of determining how best to change our current system and implement a more effective system to insure that information required to be disclosed in this quarterly report on Form 10-Q has been recorded, processed, summarized and reported accurately. Our management acknowledges the existence of this problem, and intends to developed procedures to address them to the extent possible given limitations in financial and manpower resources. While management is working on a plan, no assurance can be made at this point that the implementation of such controls and procedures will be completed in a timely manner or that they will be adequate once implemented.

Changes in Internal Controls.

There have been no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the three months ended June 30, 2012 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.
