NEVADA CANYON GOLD CORP.

NOTES TO THE CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(UNAUDITED)

MARCH 31, 2021

 

NOTE 1 - NATURE OF BUSINESS

 

Nevada Canyon Gold Corp. (the “Company”) was incorporated under the laws of the state of Nevada on February 27, 2014. The Company is involved in acquiring and exploring mineral properties in Nevada.

 

Going Concern

 

The Company’s unaudited interim condensed financial statements are prepared using accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”) applicable to a going concern, which contemplates the realization of assets and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. The Company has only recently begun its exploration operations and has not generated or realized any revenues from these business operations. 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.

 

Continued Uncertainty due to Global Outbreak of COVID-19

 

In March of 2020, the World Health Organization declared an outbreak of COVID-19 Global pandemic. The COVID-19 has impacted vast array of businesses through the restrictions put in place by most governments internationally, including the USA federal government as well as provincial and municipal governments, regarding travel, business operations and isolation/quarantine orders. At this time, it is unknown to what extent the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak may have on the Company as this will depend on future developments that are highly uncertain and that cannot be predicted with confidence. These uncertainties arise from the inability to predict the ultimate geographic spread of the disease, and the duration of the outbreak, including the duration of travel restrictions, business closures or disruptions, and quarantine/isolation measures that are currently, or may be put, in place world-wide to fight the virus. While the extent of the impact is unknown, the COVID-19 outbreak may hinder the Company’s ability to raise financing for exploration or operating costs due to uncertain capital markets, supply chain disruptions, increased government regulations and other unanticipated factors, all of which may also negatively impact the Company’s business and financial condition.

 

NOTE 2 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

The unaudited interim condensed financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with US GAAP for interim condensed financial information and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). They do not include all information and footnotes required by US GAAP for complete financial statements. Except as disclosed herein, there have been no material changes in the information disclosed in the notes to the financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K, filed with the SEC. The unaudited interim condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with those financial statements included in Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments considered necessary for fair presentation, consisting solely of normal recurring adjustments, have been made. Operating results for the three months ended March 31, 2021, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2021.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

The Company has implemented all new accounting pronouncements that are in effect and that may impact its financial statements and does not believe that there are any other new accounting pronouncements that have been issued that might have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations.

NOTE 5 – MINERAL PROPERTY INTERESTS

 

Lazy Claims

 

On August 2, 2017, the Company entered into an exploration lease agreement (the “Lazy Claims Agreement”) with Tarsis Resources US Inc. (“Tarsis”), a Nevada corporation, to lease the Lazy Claims, consisting of three claims. The term of the Lazy Claims Agreement is ten years, and is subject to extension for additional two consecutive 10-year terms. Full consideration of the Lazy Claims Agreement consists of the following: an initial cash payment of $1,000 to Tarsis, paid upon the execution of the Lazy Claims Agreement, with $2,000 payable to Tarsis on each subsequent anniversary of the effective date. The Company agreed to pay Tarsis a 2% production royalty (the “Lazy Claims Royalty”) based on the gross returns from the production and sale of minerals from the Lazy Claims. Should the Lazy Claims Royalty payments to Tarsis be in excess of $2,000 per year, the Company will not be required to pay a $2,000 annual minimum payment.

 

During the three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company did not incur any expenses associated with the Lazy Claims.

 

Loman Claims

 

In December 2019 the Company acquired 27 mining claims for a total of $10,395. The claims were acquired by the Company from a third-party.

 

During the three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company did not incur any expenses associated with the Loman Claims.

NOTE 6 – EQUITY INVESTMENT

 

As at March 31, 2021, the Company’s equity investments consist of 8,218,000 common shares of Walker River Resources Corp. (“WRR”) and warrants to acquire an additional 1,900,000 WRR common shares (the “WRR Warrants”).

 

The WRR Warrants expire on July 18, 2022, and can be exercised without further consideration into 1,900,000 common shares in the capital of WRR (the “WRR Shares”). The terms of the WRR Warrants contain a provision which prevents the Company from exercising any part of the WRR Warrants which would result in the Company owning 10% or more of the issued and outstanding shares of WRR. Because these warrants can be exercised for no further consideration they have been accounted for as being equivalent to shares and classified as available for sale.

 

At March 31, 2021, the fair market value of the equity investment was calculated to be $884,924 (2020 - $794,542) based on the market price of WRR Shares at March 31, 2021.

 

During the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, the Company sold 1,269,000 WRR Shares for net proceeds of $165,330. The Company recorded a net realized gain of $82,280 on the sale of WRR Shares. The Company did not sell any WRR Shares during the three-month period ended March 31, 2021.

 

The revaluation of the equity investment in WRR Shares resulted in $90,382 gain (2020 - $232,587 loss). The gain resulted from the increase of the market price of WRR Shares from CAD$0.10 per share at December 31, 2020, to CAD$0.11 per share at March 31, 2021. In comparison, during the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, the market price of WRR Shares decreased from CAD$0.085 per share at December 31, 2019, to CAD$0.07 per share at March 31, 2020, resulting in an overall loss.

 

NOTE 7 – NOTES AND ADVANCES PAYABLE

 

At March 31, 2021, the Company’s liability associated with notes and advances payable consisted of $15,064 the Company received as an advance for its operating activities during the year ended December 31, 2018, and $1,100 the Company received from WRR as a payment of its vendor payable. The advances are non-interest bearing, unsecured and due on demand.

 

NOTE 8 – STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

 

The Company was formed with one class of common stock, $0.0001 par value and is authorized to issue 100,000,000 common shares and one class of preferred stock, $0.0001 par value and is authorized to issue 10,000,000 preferred shares. Voting rights are not cumulative and, therefore, the holders of more than 50% of the common stock could, if they chose to do so, elect all of the directors of the Company.

 

During the three-month period ended March 31, 2021 and for the year ended December 31, 2020, the Company did not have any transactions that would have resulted in issuance of the shares of its common stock

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

 

Forward Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, including “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations” in Item 2 of Part I of this report include forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995 (collectively, the “Reform Act”). The Reform Act provides a safe harbor for forward-looking statements to encourage companies to provide prospective information about themselves so long as they identify these statements as forward-looking and provide meaningful cautionary statements identifying important factors that could cause actual results to differ from the projected results. All statements, other than statements of historical fact that we make in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q are forward-looking. The words “anticipates,” “believes,” “expects,” “intends,” “will continue,” “estimates,” “plans,” “projects,” the negative of these terms and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. However, the absence of these words does not mean the statement is not forward-looking.

 

Forward-looking statements involve risks, uncertainties or other factors which may cause actual results to differ materially from the future results, performance or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements. These statements are based on our management’s beliefs and assumptions, which in turn are based on currently available information. Certain risks, uncertainties or other important factors are detailed in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and may be detailed from time to time in other reports we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including on Forms 8-K and 10-K.

 

Examples of forward-looking statements in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q include, but are not limited to, our expectations regarding our ability to generate operating cash flows and to fund our working capital and capital expenditure requirements. Important assumptions relating to the forward-looking statements include, among others, assumptions regarding demand for our future products, the timing and cost of capital expenditures, competitive conditions and general economic conditions. These assumptions could prove inaccurate. Although we believe that the estimates and projections reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, our expectations may prove to be incorrect. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the results and events anticipated or implied by such forward-looking statements include:

 

 management’s plans, objectives and budgets for its future operations and future economic performance;
 capital budget and future capital requirements;
 meeting future capital needs;
 our dependence on management and the need to recruit additional personnel;
 limited trading for our common stock;
 the level of future expenditures;
 impact of recent accounting pronouncements;
 the outcome of regulatory and litigation matters; and
 the assumptions described in this report underlying such forward-looking statements.

 

Actual results and developments may materially differ from those expressed in, or implied by, such statements due to a number of factors, including:

 

 those described in the context of such forward-looking statements;
 future product development and marketing costs;
 the markets of our domestic operations;
 the impact of competitive products and pricing;
 the political, social and economic climate in which we conduct operations; and
 the risk factors described in other documents and reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission, including our Registration Statement on Form S-1/A (SEC File No. 333-196075).

 

10
 

 

We operate in an extremely competitive environment. New risks emerge from time to time. It is not possible for us to predict all of those risks, nor can we assess the impact of all of those risks on our business or the extent to which any factor may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement. We believe these forward-looking statements are reasonable. However, you should not place undue reliance on any forward-looking statements, which are based on current expectations. Further, forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made, and unless required by law, we expressly disclaim any obligation or undertaking to update publicly any of them in light of new information or future events.

 

The following is management’s discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations and is provided as a supplement to the accompanying unaudited interim condensed financial statements and notes to help provide an understanding of our financial condition, results of operations and cash flows during the periods included in the accompanying unaudited interim condensed financial statements.

 

In this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, “Company,” “the Company,” “us,” and “our” refer to Nevada Canyon Gold Corp., a Nevada corporation, unless the context requires otherwise.

 

We intend the following discussion to assist in the understanding of our financial position and our results of operations for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2020. You should refer to the Financial Statements and related Notes in conjunction with this discussion.

 

Continued Uncertainty due to Global Outbreak of COVID-19

 

In March of 2020, the World Health Organization declared an outbreak of COVID-19 Global pandemic. The COVID-19 has impacted vast array of businesses through the restrictions put in place by most governments internationally, including the USA federal government as well as provincial and municipal governments, regarding travel, business operations and isolation/quarantine orders. At this time, it is unknown to what extent the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak may have on the Company as this will depend on future developments that are highly uncertain and that cannot be predicted with confidence. These uncertainties arise from the inability to predict the ultimate geographic spread of the disease, and the duration of the outbreak, including the duration of travel restrictions, business closures or disruptions, and quarantine/isolation measures that are currently, or may be put, in place world-wide to fight the virus. While the extent of the impact is unknown, the COVID-19 outbreak may hinder the Company’s ability to raise financing for exploration or operating costs due to uncertain capital markets, supply chain disruptions, increased government regulations and other unanticipated factors, all of which may also negatively impact the Company’s business and financial condition.

 

General

 

We were incorporated under the laws of the state of Nevada on February 27, 2014. We are involved in acquiring and exploring mineral properties in Nevada, however, as of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q we have not generated or realized any revenues from these business operations.

 

We were a party to an exploration agreement (the “Agreement”) with an option to form a joint venture with Walker River Resources Corp. (“WRR”) on its wholly-owned Lapon Canyon Gold Project (“Lapon Canyon Project”) located approximately 40 miles southeast of Yerington, Nevada. On July 5, 2017, we entered into a property purchase agreement with WRR on the Lapon Canyon Project, pursuant to which WRR agreed to buy back our interest in the Lapon Canyon Project in exchange for 9,100,000 common shares of WRR (the “WRR Shares”) and warrants to acquire an additional 11,900,000 WRR Shares (the “WRR Warrants”). Each WRR Warrant is exercisable for a period of five years without further consideration into one WRR Share. The terms of the WRR Warrants contain a provision which prevents us from exercising any WRR Warrants which would result in us owning 10% or more of the issued and outstanding shares of WRR. We exercised 10,000,000 WRR Warrants on January 9, 2020; at the time of exercise, the WRR Shares had a fair market value of $878,539 (CAD$1,149,042).

 

On June 7, 2017, we entered into an exploration lease and option to purchase agreement (the “Garfield Agreement”) with Goodsprings Development LLC (“Goodsprings”), a Nevada limited liability corporation on the Garfield Flats Project (the “Garfield Property”), consisting of six Orsa Claims and six Lazy Claims totaling 240 acres located in sections 27 and 28 of T 7 N, R 32 E, Mineral County, Nevada about 18 miles southeast of the town of Hawthorne. During our Fiscal 2017, we staked an additional 69 Orsa Claims and 75 Lazy Claims which we added to the Garfield Flats Project.

 

11
 

 

On July 11, 2018, we entered into a definitive purchase agreement with WRR for the sale of the Garfield Agreement. Full consideration for the Garfield Agreement consisted of a one-time cash payment of $55,000 (the “Cash Consideration”). In lieu of the Cash Consideration, WRR agreed to extinguish the $55,000 note payable we issued to WRR during our fiscal 2017.

 

On August 2, 2017, we entered into an exploration lease agreement (the “Lazy Claims Agreement”) with Tarsis Resources US Inc. (“Tarsis”), a Nevada corporation, to lease rights to three additional Lazy claims totaling 60 acres and located in the vicinity of the Garfield Property. The term of the Lazy Claims Agreement is ten years and is subject to extension for an additional two consecutive 10-year terms. Full consideration of the Lazy Claims Agreement consists of the following: an initial cash payment of $1,000 to Tarsis, which we paid upon the execution of the Lazy Claims Agreement, with $2,000 payable to Tarsis on each subsequent anniversary of the effective date. We agreed to pay Tarsis a 2% production royalty (the “Lazy Claims Royalty”) based on the gross returns from the production and sale of minerals from the Lazy Claims Property. Should the Lazy Claims Royalty payments be in excess of $2,000 per year, we will not be required to pay a $2,000 annual minimum payment.

 

In December 2019 we acquired 27 unpatented mining claims for a total of $10,395 from a third-party (the “Loman Property”). As at the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, the Loman Property claims are yet to be re-registered into the Company’s name, as due to COVID-19 pandemic certain regulatory requirements cannot be finalized. The Company intends to finalize the re-registration once the current world health crisis has passed and all local regulatory services are operating at full capacity.

 

As of the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, our mineral interests are represented by Lazy Claims Property and Loman Property.

Our financial statements and related public financial information are based on the application of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) and are presented in US dollars. GAAP requires the use of estimates; assumptions, judgments and subjective interpretations of accounting principles that have an impact on the assets, liabilities, revenues and expense amounts reported. These estimates can also affect supplemental information contained in our external disclosures including information regarding contingencies, risk and financial condition. We believe our use of estimates and underlying accounting assumptions adhere to GAAP and are consistently and conservatively applied. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ materially from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We continue to monitor significant estimates made during the preparation of our financial statements.

 

The following discussion of our financial condition and results of operations should be read in conjunction with our unaudited interim condensed financial statements for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, together with notes thereto, which are included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, as well as our most recent audited financial statements on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Revenues

 

We had no revenues for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2020. Due to the exploration rather than the production nature of our business, we do not expect to have significant operating revenue in the foreseeable future.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Our operating expenses for the three-month periods ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 included general and administrative expenses, professional fees and transfer agent and filing fees. During the three-month period ended March 31, 2021, our operating expenses increased by $1,663, or 21%, to $9,509 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared to $7,846 for the three months ended March 31, 2020. This change was mainly associated with increased professional fees which, for the three months ended March 31, 2021, were $3,500, an increase of $1,000 as compared to $2,500 we incurred during the three months ended March 31, 2020. Our general and administrative expenses increased by $360 to $3,219 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, as opposed to $2,859 we incurred in comparative three months ended March 31, 2020; and our transfer agent and filing fees increased by $303, to $2,790, as opposed to $2,487 we incurred during the three months ended March 31, 2020.

 

Other Items

 

During the three-month period ended March 31, 2021, we recognized $90,382 gain on fair value of equity investments (2020 – $232,587 loss). The gain resulted from revaluation of WRR Shares and WRR warrants and was caused mainly by increased market price of WRR’s shares from CAD$0.10 per share at December 31, 2020, to CAD$0.11 per share at March 31, 2021, and to a smaller degree from fluctuation of exchange rates between the US and Canadian dollars. We earned $449 in interest revenue (2020 - $1,394). Since the funds generated from the sale of equity investments are held in Canadian dollars, we incurred $11,028 gain associated with foreign exchange fluctuation rates (2020 - $36,450 loss).

 

During the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, we recorded $82,280 gain on equity investments which was associated with the sale of 1,269,000 WRR Shares for net proceeds of $165,330 (CAD$219,974). During the three-month period ended March 31, 2021 we did not sell WRR shares.

Net Income (Loss)

 

At March 31, 2021, we had a net income of $92,350, as compared to net loss of $193,209 for the three-month period ended March 31, 2020. This change mainly resulted from $90,382 gain on revaluation of our equity investments, as opposed to $232,587 loss we recognized in the comparative period, which was in part offset by $82,280 realized gain on the sale of WRR Shares we recorded during the three-month period ended March 31, 2020.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Current assets $899,807  $895,106 
Current liabilities  1,434,729   1,431,996 
Working capital deficit $(534,922) $(536,890)

 

As of March 31, 2021, we had a cash balance of $898,341, of which $497,351 (CAD$625,419) were held in high-interest savings account with a major Canadian bank, and working capital deficit of $534,922 with cash flows used in operations totaling $6,510 for the period then ended. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, our operations were funded with cash on hand.

 

The cash that we had on hand at March 31, 2021, was generated by selling our investment in WRR shares. Our operating activities did not generate sufficient cash flows to satisfy our cash requirements for the three-month period ended March 31, 2021. Due to the exploration rather than the production nature of our business, there is no assurance that we will be able to generate sufficient cash from our operations. If we are unable to generate sufficient cash flow from our operations to repay the amounts owing when due, we may be required to continue selling our equity investments in WRR or raise additional financing by borrowing funds or issuing our equity. There can be no assurance that we will be successful in our efforts to raise additional capital.

 

Cash Flow

Net cash used in operating activities

 

Our net cash used in operating activities increased by $2,375, or 57%, to $6,510 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, compared with $4,135 for the comparative period in 2020. During the three months ended March 31, 2021, we used $9,060 to cover our cash operating costs and $183 to increase our prepaid expenses. These uses of cash were offset by a $2,733 increase in our accounts payable and accrued liabilities.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2020, our net cash used in operating activities decreased by $34,840, or 89%, to $4,135 for the three months ended March 31, 2020, compared with $38,975 for the comparable period in 2019. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, we used $6,452 to cover our cash operating costs and $183 to increase our prepaid expenses. These uses of cash were offset by a $2,500 increase in our accounts payable and accrued liabilities.

Adjustments to reconcile net income/(loss) to net cash used in operating activities

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2021, we recognized $90,382 gain on revaluation of fair value of equity investments associated with WRR Shares and WRR Warrants. In addition, we recognized $11,028 gain on foreign exchange fluctuations associated with cash we held in a high-interest savings account at a major Canadian bank.

 

During the three months ended March 31, 2020, we recognized $232,587 loss on revaluation of fair value of equity investments associated with WRR Shares and WRR Warrants and recorded $82,280 gain on sale of 1,269,000 WRR Shares for net proceeds of $165,330 (CAD$219,974). In addition, we recognized $36,450 loss on foreign exchange fluctuations associated with cash we held in a high-interest savings account at a major Canadian bank.

 

Net cash generated by investing activities

 

During the three-month period ended March 31, 2021, we did not engage in any investing activities.

 

During the three-month period ended March 31, 2020, we generated $165,330 on the sale of 1,269,000 WRR Shares.

 

Going Concern

 

At March 31, 2021, we had a working capital deficit of $534,922 and cash on hand of $898,341, which is sufficient enough to support our current plan of operations for the next 12-month period. Our equity investments include 8,218,000 WRR Shares and 1,900,000 WRR Warrants, which we have been using and are planning to continue to use as a source of additional cash inflow. To support our operations beyond the 12-month period we may require additional funds; therefore, we continue to actively pursue other means of financing our operations through equity and/or debt financing. There can be no assurance that we will be able to procure funds sufficient to support our day-to-day operations and exploration programs. If operating difficulties or other factors (many of which are beyond our control) delay our realization of revenues or cash flows from operations, we may be limited in our ability to pursue our business plan. Moreover, if our resources from obtaining additional capital or cash flows from operations, once we commence them, do not satisfy our operational needs or if unexpected expenses arise due to unanticipated pressures or if we decide to expand our business plan beyond its currently anticipated level or otherwise, we will require additional financing to fund our operations, in addition to anticipated cash generated from our operations. Additional financing might not be available on terms favorable to us, or at all. If adequate funds were not available or were not available on acceptable terms, our ability to fund our operations, take advantage of unanticipated opportunities, develop or enhance our business or otherwise respond to competitive pressures would be significantly limited. In a worst-case scenario, we might not be able to fund our operations or to remain in business, which could result in a total loss of our stockholders’ investment. If we raise additional funds through the issuance of equity or convertible debt securities, the percentage ownership of our stockholders would be reduced, and these newly issued securities might have rights, preferences or privileges senior to those of existing stockholders.

 

Impact of Inflation

 

We believe that inflation has had a negligible effect on operations over the past fiscal quarter.

 

Capital Expenditures

 

The Company expended no amounts on capital expenditures for the three months ended March 31, 2021.

 

Unproved Mineral Properties

 

As of the date of this quarterly report on Form 10-Q, our mineral interests are represented by the Lazy Claims Property and the Loman Claims Property.

 

We acquired the Lazy Claims Property through an exploration lease agreement with Tarsis Resources US Inc. (“Tarsis”), a Nevada corporation, dated for reference August 2, 2017 (the “Lazy Claims Agreement”). The Lazy Claims Agreement grants us a right to conduct exploratory work for minerals on three Lazy Claims totaling 60 acres and located in Mineral County, Nevada about 18 miles southeast of the town of Hawthorne (the “Lazy Claims”).

 

15
 

 

The term of the Lazy Claims Agreement is ten years and is subject to extension for an additional two consecutive 10-year terms. Full consideration for the Lazy Claims Agreement consists of the following: an initial cash payment of $1,000 to Tarsis, which we paid upon the execution of the Lazy Claims Agreement, with $2,000 payable to Tarsis on each subsequent anniversary of the effective date. We agreed to pay Tarsis a 2% production royalty (the “Lazy Claims Royalty”) based on the gross returns from the production and sale of minerals from the Lazy Claims Property. Should the Lazy Claims Royalty payments to Tarsis be in excess of $2,000 per year, we will not be required to pay a $2,000 annual minimum payment.

 

In December 2019 we acquired 27 unpatented mining claims for a total of $10,395 from a third-party (the “Loman Property”). As at the date of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, the Loman Property claims are yet to be re-registered into the Company’s name, as due to COVID-19 pandemic certain regulatory requirements cannot be finalized. The Company intends to finalize the re-registration once the current world health crisis has passed and all local regulatory services are operating at full capacity.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

None.

 

Use of Estimates

 

Areas where significant estimation judgments are made and where actual results could differ materially from these estimates are the carrying value of certain assets and liabilities which are not readily apparent from other sources and the classification of net operating loss and tax credit carry forwards.

 

We evaluate impairment of our long-lived assets by applying the provisions of ASC No. 360. In applying those provisions, we have not recognized any impairment charge on our long-lived assets during the three-month period ended March 31, 2021.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk

 

As a “smaller reporting company” as defined by Item 10 of Regulation S-K, we are not required to provide information required by this item.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures

 

(a) Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

We conducted an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer, who is also our Chief Financial Officer, of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 as amended (the “Exchange Act”)). Based on this evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer, who is also our Chief Financial Officer, concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the fiscal quarter covered by this quarterly report on Form 10-Q were not effective 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.

 

(b) Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting

 

During the quarter ended March 31, 2021, there has been no change in internal control over financial reporting that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

 

16
 

 

Inherent Limitations of Internal Controls

 

Our internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with the U.S. GAAP. Our internal control over financial reporting includes those policies and procedures that:

 

 pertain to the maintenance of records that, in reasonable detail, accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets;
   
 provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with the U.S. GAAP, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorizations of our management and directors; and
   
 provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use, or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Management does not expect that our internal controls will prevent or detect all errors and all fraud. A control system, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of internal controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected. Also, any evaluation of the effectiveness of controls in future periods are subject to the risk that those internal controls may become inadequate because of changes in business conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.
