ALPHA ENERGY, INC.

Notes to Unaudited Financial Statements March 31, 2019

 

 

NOTE 1 – BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The accompanying unaudited interim financial statements have been prepared by the Company without audit. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (which include only normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations, and cash flows as of March 31, 2019 and 2018, have been made.

 

Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been omitted. Notes to the financial statements which would substantially duplicate the disclosures contained in the audited financial statements for the most recent fiscal period, as reported in the Form 10-K, have been omitted. It is suggested that these unaudited interim financial statements be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s December 31, 2018 audited financial statements. The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the full year.

 

Related party policy

 

In accordance with ASC 850, the Company discloses: the nature of the related party relationship(s) involved; a description of the transactions, including transactions to which no amounts or nominal amounts were ascribed, for each of the periods for which income statements are presented, and such other information deemed necessary to an understanding of the effects of the transactions on the financial statements; the dollar amounts of transactions for each of the periods for which income statements are presented and the effects of any change in the method of establishing the terms from that used in the preceding period; and amounts due from or to related parties as of the date of each balance sheet presented and, if not otherwise apparent, the terms and manner of settlement.

 

Revenue and Cost Recognition

 

The Company records revenues from the sales of natural gas and crude oil when the production is produced and sold, and also when collectability is ensured. The Company may in the future have an interest with other producers in certain properties, in which case the Company will use the sales method to account for gas imbalances. Under this method, revenue will be recorded on the basis of natural gas actually sold by the Company. The Company also reduces revenue for other owners’ natural gas sold by the Company that cannot be volumetrically balanced in the future due to insufficient remaining reserves. The Company’s remaining over- and under-produced gas balancing positions are considered in the Company’s proved oil and natural gas reserves. The Company had no gas imbalances at March 31, 2019 or December 31, 2018. The Company recorded revenues of $2,270 and $1,540 and costs of revenues totaling $2,902 and $842 during the three months ended March 1, 2019 and 2018. There were no accounts receivable at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018.

 

Derivative Liabilities

 

The Company records a debt discount related to the issuance of convertible debts that have conversion features at adjustable rates. The debt discount for the convertible instruments is recognized and measured by allocating a portion of the proceeds as an increase in additional paid-in capital and as a reduction to the carrying amount of the convertible instrument equal to the intrinsic value of the conversion features. The debt discount will be accreted by recording additional non-cash gains and losses related to the change in fair market values of derivative liabilities over the life of the convertible notes.

 

Accounting Standards Adopted During the Quarter Ended March 31, 2019 

 

The Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), as of January 1, 2019, using the modified retrospective approach.  The modified retrospective approach provides a method for recording existing leases at the application date.  In addition, the Company elected the available practical expedients permitted under the transaction guidance within the new standard.  There was no impact from the adoption of the new standard as the Company does not currently have any operating leases.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Standards Not Yet Adopted

 

The Company has reviewed all recently issued, but not yet adopted, accounting standards, in order to determine their effects, if any, on its results of operations, financial position or cash flows. Based on that review, the Company believes that no other pronouncements will have a significant effect on its financial statements.

 

 

NOTE 2 – GOING CONCERN

 

The Company’s interim unaudited financial statements are prepared using generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America applicable to a going concern which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has not yet established an ongoing source of revenues sufficient to cover its operating costs and allow it to continue as a going concern. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for a period of twelve months from the date of issuance of this report. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company obtaining adequate capital to fund operating losses until it becomes profitable. If the Company is unable to obtain adequate capital, it could be forced to cease operations.

 

7

 

 

In order to continue as a going concern, the Company will need, among other things, additional capital resources. Management’s plan is to obtain such resources for the Company by obtaining capital from management and significant shareholders sufficient to meet its minimal operating expenses and seeking equity and/or debt financing. However, management cannot provide any assurances that the Company will be successful in accomplishing any of its plans.

 

The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to successfully accomplish the plans described in the preceding paragraph and eventually secure other sources of financing and attain profitable operations. The accompanying financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

 

NOTE 3 – RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

 

The Company neither owns nor leases any real or personal property. The officers and directors for the Company are involved in other business activities and may, in the future, become involved in other business opportunities. If a specific business opportunity becomes available, such persons may face a conflict in selecting between the Company and their other business interest. The Company has not formulated a policy for the resolution of such conflicts. The Chief Financial Officer allows the use of his residence as an office for the Company at no charge.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company received no advances from AEI Acquisition Company, a majority shareholder, from its convertible credit line. See Note 4 – Convertible Credit Line Payable – Related Party. During the three months ended March 31, 2019, the Company received $23,841 in short-term advances from Fidare Consulting Group, LLC. The Company repaid $30,875 on the advances leaving a balance of $17,332 at March 31, 2019.

 

 

NOTE 4 – DERIVATIVE LIABILITY

 

As discussed in Note 1, on a recurring basis, we measure certain financial assets and liabilities based upon the fair value hierarchy. The following table presents information about the Company’s liabilities measured at fair value as of March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018:

As of March 31, 2019, the Company had a $136,446 derivative liability balance on the balance sheet and recorded a gain from derivative liability fair value adjustment of $472,152 during the three months ended March 31, 2019.

 

Utilizing Level 3 Inputs, the Company recorded fair market value adjustments related to convertible notes payable for the three months ended March 31, 2019 of $472,152. The fair market value adjustments as of March 31, 2019 were calculated utilizing a max valuation method using the following assumptions: exercise price of $1.00, 136,446 common shares the balance can be converted into and a stock price at measurement date of $1.00.

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

 

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS

 

This 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. All statements, other than statements of historical facts, included or incorporated by reference in this Form 10-Q which address activities, events or developments which the Company expects or anticipates will or may occur in the future, including such things as future capital expenditures (including the amount and nature thereof); finding suitable merger or acquisition candidates; expansion and growth of the Company's business and operations; and other such matters are forward-looking statements. These statements are based on certain assumptions and analyses made by the Company in light of its experience and its perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors it believes are appropriate under the circumstances. However, whether actual results or developments will conform with the Company's expectations and predictions is subject to a number of risks and uncertainties, including general economic, market and business conditions; the business opportunities (or lack thereof) that may be presented to and pursued by the Company; changes in laws or regulation; and other factors, most of which are beyond the control of the Company.

 

9

 

 

These forward-looking statements can be identified by the use of predictive, future-tense or forward-looking terminology, such as "believes," "anticipates," "expects," "estimates," "plans," "may," "will," or similar terms. These statements appear in a number of places in this Filing and include statements regarding the intent, belief or current expectations of the Company, and its directors or its officers with respect to, among other things: (i) trends affecting the Company's financial condition or results of operations for its limited history; (ii) the Company's business and growth strategies; and, (iii) the Company's financing plans. Investors are cautioned that any such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and involve significant risks and uncertainties, and that actual results may differ materially from those projected in the forward-looking statements as a result of various factors. Such factors that could adversely affect actual results and performance include, but are not limited to, the Company's limited operating history, potential fluctuations in quarterly operating results and expenses, government regulation, technological change and competition.

 

Consequently, all of the forward-looking statements made in this Form 10-Q are qualified by these cautionary statements and there can be no assurance that the actual results or developments anticipated by the Company will be realized or, even if substantially realized, that they will have the expected consequence to or effects on the Company or its business or operations. The Company assumes no obligations to update any such forward-looking statements.

 

General Business Development

 

The Company was formed on September 26, 2013 in the State of Colorado.

 

Business Strategy

 

The Company was incorporated in September 2013. Our business model is to purchase or trade stock for oil and gas properties to be held as long-term assets. Oil and gas commodity pricing has stabilized under the current economic market conditions bringing the U.S. to become one of the top the number one producers in the world. The momentum to drill using enhanced drilling technology in previously undeveloped areas assures the continued value of these properties. Our lean operating structure positions us well to compete in this very competitive market. Our strategy is to acquire producing properties that the Company can operate which have proven un-drilled locations available for further development. At this time the Company is reviewing several properties but have no contractual commitments to date. Our management’s years of experience and knowledge of the oil and gas industry leads us to believe that there are an abundance of good drilling prospects available that have either been overlooked or are not big enough for the larger companies. In the process of identifying these drilling prospects, the Company will utilize the expertise of existing management and employ the highest caliber contract engineering firms available to further evaluate the properties. To qualify for acquisition, the calculated cash flow after taxes and operating expenses, including ten percent (10%) interest per year, will recover the acquisition cost in 22 to 30 months. The cash flow calculation will be based conservatively on $51 per barrel of oil and $2.89 per MCF of gas. In addition, the selection criteria will require the life of current producing wells to be 7 years or longer and the field must have a minimum total life of 15 years.

 

The company is actively pursuing acquisition of additional properties in Oklahoma, Texas and New Mexico.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

In Financial Reporting release No. 60, "CAUTIONARY ADVICE REGARDING DISCLOSURE ABOUT CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES" ("FRR 60"), the Securities and Exchange Commission suggested that companies provide additional disclosure and commentary on their most critical accounting policies. In FRR 60, the SEC defined the most critical accounting policies as the ones that are most important to the portrayal of a company's financial condition and operating results, and require management to make its most difficult and subjective judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates of matters that are inherently uncertain. Based on this definition, our most critical accounting policies include: non-cash compensation valuation that affects the total expenses reported in the current period and the valuation of shares and underlying mineral rights acquired with shares. The methods, estimates and judgments we use in applying these most critical accounting policies have a significant impact on the results we report in our financial statements.
