GulfSlope Energy, Inc.
(An Exploration Stage Company)
Notes to Condensed Financial Statements
March 31, 2014
(Unaudited)


NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND NATURE OF BUSINESS

GulfSlope Energy, Inc. (the “Company,” “GulfSlope,” “our” and words of similar import), a Delaware corporation, is an independent energy company intent upon engaging in the acquisition, exploration, exploitation, development and production of crude oil and natural gas properties.  To this end, the Company entered the exploration stage on March 22, 2013 when it executed a master license agreement with a geophysical company to license certain seismic data for the purposes of engaging in the exploration of oil and natural gas.
 
NOTE 2 – SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The condensed financial statements included herein are unaudited.  However, these condensed financial statements include all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods.  The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for an entire year. The preparation of financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the Company’s condensed financial statements and accompanying notes. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.

Certain information, accounting policies, and footnote disclosures normally included in the financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”) have been omitted in this Form 10-Q pursuant to certain rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).  The condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements for the year ended September 30, 2013, which were included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013.

Cash and Cash Equivalents
 
GulfSlope considers highly liquid investments with insignificant interest rate risk and original maturities to the Company of three months or less to be cash equivalents.  Cash equivalents consist primarily of interest-bearing bank accounts and money market funds.  The Company’s cash positions represent assets held in checking and money market accounts.  These assets are generally available on a daily or weekly basis and are highly liquid in nature.  

Liquidity/Going Concern

We have incurred accumulated losses for the period from inception to March 31, 2014 of $23,239,895.  Further losses are anticipated in developing our business.   As a result, our auditors have expressed substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.  As of March 31, 2014, we had $6,701,699 of unrestricted cash on hand excluding $2,500,690 of restricted cash in an escrow account earmarked for a future payment associated with the acquisition of seismic data.   The Company estimates that it will need to raise a minimum of $6.6 million to fund operations through March 31, 2015, and likely significantly more capital to meet its obligations during the subsequent 12 months. The Company plans to finance the Company through best-efforts equity and/or debt financings. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Full Cost Method

The Company uses the full cost method of accounting for oil and gas exploration and development activities. Under the full cost method of accounting, all costs associated with the exploration for and development of oil and gas reserves are capitalized on a country-by-country basis into a single cost center (“full cost pool”). Such costs include land acquisition costs, geological and geophysical (“G&G”) expenses, carrying charges on non-producing properties, costs of drilling both productive and non-productive wells and overhead charges directly related to acquisition, exploration and development activities.

The costs of unproved properties and related capitalized costs (such as G&G costs) are withheld from the depletion base until such time as they are either developed or abandoned.  When proved reserves are assigned or the property is considered to be impaired, the cost of the property or the amount of the impairment is added to costs subject to depletion and full cost ceiling calculations. Further, capitalized G&G costs that are directly associated with unevaluated properties not yet owned by the Company are included in the depletion base.  As of March 31, 2014, the Company had no proved reserves, nor any unevaluated properties.  As a result, the geological and geophysical costs are included in the amortization base as incurred and, per Rule 4-10, are subject to the ceiling limitation test, resulting in immediate impairment.

 
7

 
 
 
Companies that use the full cost method of accounting for oil and natural gas exploration and development activities are required to perform a ceiling test calculation each quarter. The full cost ceiling test is an impairment test prescribed by SEC Regulation S-X Rule 4-10. The ceiling test is performed quarterly, on a country-by-country basis, utilizing the average of prices in effect on the first day of the month for the preceding twelve month period. The ceiling limits such pooled costs to the aggregate of the present value of future net revenues attributable to proved crude oil and natural gas reserves discounted at 10% plus the lower of cost or market value of unproved properties less any associated tax effects. If such capitalized costs exceed the ceiling, the Company will record a write-down to the extent of such excess as a non-cash charge to earnings. Any such write-down will reduce earnings in the period of occurrence and results in a lower depreciation, depletion and amortization rate in future periods. A write-down may not be reversed in future periods even though higher oil and natural gas prices may subsequently increase the ceiling.

Net Loss Per Share
 
Basic earnings per share (“EPS”) is computed by dividing net income (loss) (the numerator) by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period (denominator).  Diluted EPS is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares and potential common shares outstanding (if dilutive) during each period.  Potential common shares include stock options, warrants, and restricted stock.  The number of potential common shares outstanding relating to stock options, warrants, and restricted stock is computed using the treasury stock method.
 
As the Company has incurred losses for the six months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013, the potentially dilutive shares are anti-dilutive and are thus not added into the loss per share calculations.  As of March 31, 2014 and 2013, there were 49,569,097 and 0 potentially dilutive shares.
 
Recent Accounting Pronouncements

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 none of these pronouncements will have a significant effect on its financial statements.

NOTE 3 – EXPLORATION COSTS

On March 21, 2013, the Company entered into an assignment and assumption agreement (the “Assignment Agreement”) in which the Company was assigned the exclusive right to license certain seismic data from TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company (“TGS”).  In connection with the acquisition of the Assignment Agreement, the Company issued 243,516,666 shares of common stock, of which 190,045,556 of the shares were issued to John Seitz, 40,045,555 shares were issued to Ronald A. Bain, and 10,045,555 shares were issued to Dwight "Clint" M. Moore.  As a result, both Mr. Seitz and Dr. Bain became holders in excess of 5% of our outstanding shares of common stock.   The common stock was valued at $2,435,167 and the shares were subsequently issued in April 2013. These expenses were included in accrued expenses as of March 31, 2013.   On March 22, 2013, pursuant to the Assignment Agreement, the Company executed a master license agreement with TGS.  None of the assignors of the Assignment Agreement were officers or directors of the Company prior to or at the time of the acquisition of the master license agreement.  At no time have any of our officers or directors (including the assignors) been an officer, director or 5% or more shareholder of TGS.
 
In March 2013, the Company licensed certain seismic data from this geophysical company.  The seismic data license fee totaled $6,135,500.

In March 2013, the Company licensed certain seismic data from a second seismic company pursuant to another ordinary business course agreement.  The seismic data purchase totaled $4,012,260.

During May 2013, the Company incurred $90,000 in costs to participate in a geophysical research program with a public institution.

During May through September 2013, the Company incurred $1,674,376 in costs associated with technological infrastructure and third party hosting services to maintain the aforementioned seismic data.  

During May through September 2013, the Company incurred $773,271 in consulting fees, salaries and benefits associated with full-time employed geoscientists analyzing the aforementioned seismic data.   

 
8

 
 
 
During October through December 2013, the Company incurred $808,613 in consulting fees, salaries and benefits associated with consultants and full-time geoscientists, $787,935 associated with technological infrastructure and third party hosting services and seismic data, and $80,000 for an independent reserve study.

During January through March 2014, the Company incurred $618,173 in consulting fees, salaries and benefits associated with consultants and full-time geoscientists, and $431,382 associated with technological infrastructure and third party hosting services and seismic data.

The Company properly capitalized these G&G costs and included them in the depletion base because the Company did not yet own the specific unevaluated properties these costs related to. Therefore, these G&G costs were subject to the ceiling limitation test, resulting in immediate impairment for accounting purposes.

NOTE 4 – RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS

In May 2013, James Askew resigned as the Company’s chief executive officer.   Simultaneously, John Seitz was appointed chief executive officer and chairman of the board of directors.

In May 2013, Ronald A. Bain was appointed as the president and chief operating officer, and Dwight "Clint" M. Moore was appointed as the vice president and secretary.

During April through September 2013, the Company entered into convertible promissory notes whereby it borrowed a total of $6,500,000 from John Seitz, its current chief executive officer.   The notes are due on demand, bear interest at the rate of 5% per annum, and are convertible into shares of common stock at a conversion price equal to $0.12 per share of common stock (the then offering price of shares of common stock to unaffiliated investors). In May 2013, John Seitz converted $1,200,000 of the aforementioned debt into 10,000,000 shares of common stock, which shares were issued in July 2013.   As of March 31, 2014, there was a total of $228,292 accrued interest associated with these loans and the Company has recorded $94,319 in interest expense for the year ended September 30, 2013 and $67,723 and $133,972 in interest expense for the three and six months ended March 31, 2014.

During September 2013, the Company entered into convertible promissory notes whereby it borrowed a total of $200,000 from Dr. Ronald Bain, its current president and chief operating officer, and his affiliate ConRon.  The notes are due on demand, bear interest at the rate of 5% per annum, and are convertible into shares of common stock at a conversion price equal to $0.12 per share of common stock (the then offering price of shares of common stock to unaffiliated investors).  As of September 30, 2013, there was a total of $667 accrued interest associated with these loans and the Company has recorded interest expense for the same amount. In October 2013, Dr. Bain converted principal and accrued interest in the amount of $180,408 into 1,503,403 shares of common stock (a conversion rate of $.12 per share).  In November 2013, the Company repaid in full the $20,000 remaining principal balance (plus accrued interest) of the convertible promissory note.

In October 2013, the Company issued 937,500 shares of common stock to Brady Rodgers, the Company’s vice president, to settle $112,500 of fees due to Mr. Rodgers for services rendered.

In October 2013, the Company issued to Brady Rodgers, the Company’s vice president Engineering and Business Development, a ten-year option to purchase 2,000,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at an exercise price of $0.12 per share.  A fair value of $177,298 was computed using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model, of which $25,632 has been expensed during the three months ended December 31, 2013, and $31,052 and $56,684 for the three and six months ended March 31, 2014.  The options vest 50% in October 2014 and 50% in October 2015.

As of March 31, 2014, executive officers paid $56,480 to trade vendors on behalf of the Company in the ordinary course of business.

Domenica Seitz, CPA, has provided accounting consulting services to the Company. During the fiscal year ended September 30, 2013, the amount of services rendered was nominal and was donated. During the six month period ended March 31, 2014, the level of services provided increased and was valued at $29,750 based on market-competitive salaries, time devoted and professional rates. The Company has accrued this amount, and it has been reflected in the March 31, 2014 condensed financial statements. The Company has also engaged a third party professional services firm to assist with accounting and internal controls.

James M. Askew is the sole officer, director and greater than 10% shareholder of Texas South Energy, Inc. (“Texas South”), the entity with which the Company entered into the March 2014 farm-out letter agreement pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell certain working interests in potential prospects.

Mr. Seitz has not received a salary since May 31, 2013, the date he commenced serving as our chief executive officer and accordingly, no amount has been accrued on our financial statements. Prior to serving as an executive officer, Mr. Seitz served as a Company consultant and the Company has accrued $120,000 of consulting compensation owed to Mr. Seitz.  As Mr. Seitz beneficially owns 246,114,653 shares of the Company’s common stock (including shares issuable upon conversion of the principal amount of convertible notes held by Mr. Seitz), the Company recognizes that his level of stock ownership significantly aligns his interests with shareholders’ interests. From time to time, the compensation committee may consider compensation arrangements for Mr. Seitz given his continuing contributions and leadership.

In connection with the Company’s 2013 private placement of common stock at a purchase price of $0.12 per share, Mr. Rodgers purchased 256,106 shares of common stock, Paul Morris, a director, purchased 1,666,667 shares of common stock, and Richard Langdon, a director, purchased 416,667 shares of common stock.

The Black-Scholes option-pricing model is used to estimate the fair value of options granted. The weighted-average fair values of stock options granted for the six months ended March 31, 2014 were based on the following assumptions at the date of grant as follows:

Expected dividend yield
0%
Expected stock price volatility
91.42%
Risk-free interest rate
1.53%
Expected life of options
5.75 years
Weighted-average grant date fair value
$0.09

The Company used a variety of comparable and peer companies to determine the expected volatility. The Company has no historical data regarding the expected life of the options and therefore used the simplified method of calculating the expected life. The risk free rate was calculated using the U.S. Treasury constant maturity rates similar to the expected life of the options, as published by the Federal Reserve. The Company has no plans to declare any future dividends.
 
As of March 31, 2014 there was $119,175 of unrecognized stock-based compensation cost related to the stock option grant that is expected to be expensed over a period of 1.75 years.  There was $0 of intrinsic value for options outstanding as of March 31, 2014.

NOTE 7– COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

In March 2013, the Company licensed certain seismic data pursuant to two agreements.  With respect to the first agreement, as of March 31, 2014, the Company has paid $2,135,500 in cash, and has provided an additional $2,500,000 in an escrow account, which will be released to the vendor at a later date.   This amount has been recorded as restricted cash as of March 31, 2014.   The Company is obligated to provide the remaining $1,500,000 in an escrow account upon the delivery of certain additional seismic data by the vendor to the Company, which is expected to occur during the second calendar quarter of 2014.  With respect to the second agreement, as of March 31, 2014, the Company has paid $2,006,130 in cash and is obligated to pay $1,003,065 during April 2014 and $1,003,065 during April 2015.

In July 2013, the Company entered into a two-year office lease agreement.  The agreement calls for monthly payments of approximately $20,200 for the first twelve months and $20,500 for the second twelve months.  In addition, the Company paid a $18,760 security deposit in July 2013.

In October 2013, the Company purchased an insurance policy and financed the premium by executing a note payable in the amount of $114,748. The balance of the note payable at March 31, 2014 is $63,239.
 
In March 2014, the Company entered into a farm out letter agreement with Texas South Energy relating to five prospects located within 23 blocks we bid on at the Central Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale 231.  Of the blocks containing the 5 prospects, the Company was the high bidder on blocks for 4 of the prospects.  Under the terms of the farm-out letter agreement, Texas South will acquire up to a 20% working interest in these prospects for up to $10 million, of which $6.5 million has been paid as of March 31, 2014.  Per the terms of the agreement, the Company has extended the payment of the remaining $3.5 million to coincide with the Company's payment obligations to BOEM for the leases.  Texas South has also agreed to pay its proportionate share of the net rental costs related to these prospects.  The Company is obligated to refund all or a portion of the $10 million if it is unsuccessful in delivering the prospects (or as substituted as mutually agreed upon by the parties to include similar or greater prospectivity).  The Company will be the operator of record and has the right to negotiate all future joint operating agreements related to the potential leases, including these prospects.

In May 2014, the Company entered into an agreement with a seismic data reprocessing company to purchase a contract amount of $3 million of reprocessing services during the subsequent 12 month period.  As payment for the contract amount, the Company will pay $1.5 million in cash and will issue 2 million shares of the Company's common stock.

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

Forward-looking Statements

The following discussion highlights the principal factors that have affected our financial condition and results of operations as well as our liquidity and capital resources for the periods described. This discussion contains forward-looking statements. Please see “Forward-Looking Statements” above.

Plan of Operations

Prior to March 2013, we had not been engaged in any substantive business activity since 2006.  On March 20, 2013, we entered into an assignment and assumption agreement (the “Assignment Agreement”) pursuant to which we were assigned the exclusive right to license certain seismic data from a geophysical company.  In consideration for the assignment and other transactions contemplated by the Assignment Agreement, the Company issued to the assignor parties thereto an aggregate of 243,516,666 shares of the Company’s common stock, valued at $0.01 per share.  We executed a master license agreement with the geophysical company on March 22, 2013.  In March 2013, we entered into a second ordinary course license agreement with a different geophysical company, and we expect to enter into additional ordinary course license agreements with seismic companies to acquire and reprocess additional seismic data.

The Company has invested significant technical person hours in the proprietary interpretation of the above seismic data and the associated high end reprocessing of this data. The result of this proprietary interpretation has been the identification of multiple prospects that we believe may have substantial potential hydrocarbon deposits.  Our primary objective is to acquire as many of these prospects as possible during 2014.  Throughout this Report we refer to these targeted prospects as our “portfolio.”  Upon lease acquisition of our targeted prospects, we intend to cause multiple exploration wells to be drilled in our portfolio.  We anticipate lowering our capital exposure to exploration drilling activities by seeking to enter into a series of partnerships whereby partners will pay some or all of our portion of exploration drilling costs.  In return, we plan to deliver our seismic interpretation justifying the exploration drilling and the ownership of the leases. Drilling is expected to commence in 2015.

In March 2014, we competitively bid on 23 blocks at the Central Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale 231 conducted by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (“BOEM”).  Of those 23 bids, we were the high bidder on 22 blocks.  All bids are subject to review and final approval by the BOEM, which may take up to 120 days.  The cost of obtaining leases on all 22 blocks is approximately $7,843,642, of which we have already paid 20% as of March 31, 2014, and the remaining 80% is due as and when the lease is awarded.  We expect to utilize cash on hand plus the $3.5 million to be funded by Texas South under the farm-out agreement to pay the 80% balance on the leases.  Effective May 8, 2014, the Company executed lease agreements for each of Eugene Island South Addition Block 371 and Ship Shoal South Addition Block 335 and paid the BOEM $159,441 for each lease, representing the balance of the bonus and first year rental payments.  Effective May 12, 2014, the Company executed a lease agreement for Grand Isle South Addition Block 103 and paid the BOEM $682,046, representing the balance of the lease and first year rental payment.  The BOEM process for awarding leases from Central Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale 231 is underway.
 
In March 2014, the Company entered into a farm out letter agreement with Texas South relating to five prospects located within 23 blocks we bid on at the Central Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale 231.  Of the blocks containing the 5 prospects, the Company was the high bidder on 4 prospects.  Under the terms of the farm-out letter agreement, Texas South will acquire up to a 20% working interest in these prospects for up to $10 million, of which $6.5 million has been paid to date.  Per the terms of the agreement, we have extended the payment of the remaining $3.5 million to coincide with our payment obligations to BOEM for the leases.  Texas South has also agreed to pay its proportionate share of the net rental costs related to these prospects.  The Company is obligated to refund all or a portion of the $10 million if it is unsuccessful in delivering the prospects (or as substituted as mutually agreed upon by the parties to include similar or greater prospectivity).  The Company will be the operator of record and has the right to negotiate all future joint operating agreements related to the potential leases, including these prospects.

We have historically operated our business with working capital deficits.  Working capital deficits have historically been funded by equity investments and loans from management.  We expect to fund future working capital deficits from the Texas South farm-out agreement, the sale of additional equity securities, and/or the sale of working interest in assets.  As discussed in “Liquidity and Capital Requirements” below, we will need to raise at least $6.6 million to fund working capital requirements for the 12 months ending March 31, 2015.  This does not include any capital expenditures related to exploration drilling costs or repayment of debts owed to our chief executive officer.

Significant Accounting Policies

The Company uses the full cost method of accounting for oil and gas exploration and development activities. Under the full cost method of accounting, all costs associated with the exploration for and development of oil and gas reserves are capitalized on a country-by-country basis into a single cost center (“full cost pool”). Such costs include land acquisition costs, geological and geophysical (“G&G”) expenses, carrying charges on non-producing properties, costs of drilling both productive and non-productive wells and overhead charges directly related to acquisition, exploration and development activities.

The costs of unproved properties and related capitalized costs (such as G&G costs) are withheld from the depletion base until such time as they are either developed or abandoned.  When proved reserves are assigned or the property is considered to be impaired, the cost of the property or the amount of the impairment is added to costs subject to depletion and full cost ceiling calculations. Further, capitalized G&G costs that are directly associated with unevaluated properties not yet owned by the Company are included in the depletion base.  As of March 31, 2014, the Company had no proved reserves, nor any unevaluated properties.    As a result, the geological and geophysical costs are included in the amortization base as incurred and, per Rule 4-10, are subject to a ceiling limitation test, resulting in immediate impairment.

Companies that use the full cost method of accounting for oil and natural gas exploration and development activities are required to perform a ceiling test calculation each quarter. The full cost ceiling test is an impairment test prescribed by SEC Regulation S-X Rule 4-10. The ceiling test is performed quarterly, on a country-by-country basis, utilizing the average of prices in effect on the first day of the month for the preceding twelve month period. The ceiling limits such pooled costs to the aggregate of the present value of future net revenues attributable to proved crude oil and natural gas reserves discounted at 10% plus the lower of cost or market value of unproved properties less any associated tax effects. If such capitalized costs exceed the ceiling, the Company will record a write-down to the extent of such excess as a non-cash charge to earnings. Any such write-down will reduce earnings in the period of occurrence and results in a lower depreciation, depletion and amortization rate in future periods. A write-down may not be reversed in future periods even though higher oil and natural gas prices may subsequently increase the ceiling.

In accordance with one of our seismic data licensing agreements, certain funds have been placed in an escrow account for the purpose of making a future installment payment and are restricted from use in our operations.  Those funds have been classified as restricted cash and the restricted cash at March 31, 2014 was approximately $2.5 million.  In April 2014, this $2.5 million amount was paid pursuant to the revised seismic data licensing agreement.

Property and equipment are carried at cost.  We assess the carrying value of our property and equipment for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable.

Factors Affecting Comparability of Future Results
 
Success in Acquiring Oil and Gas Leases or Prospects.  Currently, the BOEM has awarded 3 of the 22 lease blocks for which we were the high bidder at the Central Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale 231, held March 19, 2014.  The remaining 19 bids are still subject to review and final approval by the BOEM, which by regulation, may take up to 120 days from March 19, 2014. 
 
We have no proved reserves.  As we have not yet drilled wells, we have no proved reserves.  We have identified prospects based on available seismic and geological information that indicate the potential presence of oil or gas.  Some of our current prospects may require additional seismic data reprocessing and interpretation.  Even when properly used and interpreted, seismic data and visualization techniques are only tools used to assist geoscientists in identifying structures and hydrocarbon indicators and do not enable the interpreter to have certainty as to whether hydrocarbons are, in fact, present in those structures.  We do not know if any of our prospects will contain oil or gas in sufficient quantities or quality to recover drilling and completion costs or to be economically viable. 

 
13

 
 
 
Success in the Discovery and Development of Reserves.  Because we have no operating history in the production of oil and gas, our future results of operations and financial condition will be directly affected by our ability to discover and develop reserves through our drilling activities.

Oil and Gas Revenue.  We have not yet commenced oil and gas production. If and when we do commence production, we expect to generate revenue from such production. No oil and gas revenue is reflected in our historical financial statements.

General and Administrative Expenses.  We expect that our general and administrative expenses will increase in future periods.

Demand and Price.  The demand for oil and gas is susceptible to volatility related to, among other factors, the level of global economic activity and may also fluctuate depending on the performance of specific industries. We expect that a decrease in economic activity, in the United States and elsewhere, would adversely affect demand for any oil and gas we may produce. Since we have not generated revenues, these key factors will only affect us if and when we produce and sell hydrocarbons.

Three Months Ended March 31, 2014 Compared to Three Months Ended March 31, 2013

We recorded no revenue during the three months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013. General and administrative expenses were approximately $0.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, compared to approximately $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013.  Impairment of capitalized geological and geophysical costs were approximately $1.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014 compared to $0 for the three months ended March 31, 2013.

Six Months Ended March 31, 2014 Compared to Six Months Ended March 31, 2013

We recorded no revenue during the six months ended March 31, 2014 and 2013.   Impairment of capitalized geological and geophysical costs were approximately $2.7 million for the six months ended March 31, 2014, and $0 for the six months ended March 31, 2013.   General and administrative expenses were $1.2 million for the six months ended March 31, 2014, compared to $1.5 million for the six months ended March 31, 2013.

Liquidity and Capital Requirements

As of March 31, 2014, we had $6,701,699 of cash on hand, excluding $2,500,690 of restricted cash in an escrow account earmarked for a future payment associated with seismic data.  In October 2013, we sold 42,952,774 shares of common stock for gross proceeds of approximately $5.2 million and in March 2014 we received $6.5 million of the $10 million total to be received under the farm-out agreement. Under our current business plan, we will require a minimum of approximately $6.6 million to fund operations through March 31, 2015.  Future equity financings may be dilutive to our stockholders, and the terms of future equity financings may include preferences or rights superior to our common stock. Debt financings may involve a pledge of assets and will rank senior to our common stock. We have historically financed our operations through best efforts private equity financings. We do not have any credit or equity facilities available with financial institutions, stockholders or third party investors, and will continue to rely on best efforts financings. There is no assurance that we can raise up to $6.6 million during the next 12 months, or raise additional capital thereafter. Failure to raise estimated required capital, on favorable terms or at all, will have a material adverse effect on our operations, and will likely cause us to curtail or cease operations.
 
We have incurred losses from inception to March 31, 2014 of $23,239,895.  Further losses are anticipated in developing our business.  As of March 31, 2014, we had $6,701,699 of cash on hand, excluding $2,500,690 of restricted cash in an escrow account earmarked for a future payment associated with seismic data.  These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The Company estimates that it will need to raise a minimum of $6.6 million to fund operations through March 31, 2015 and likely significantly more capital to meet its obligations during the subsequent 12 months. The Company plans to finance the Company through best-efforts equity and/or debt financings. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

For the six months ended March 31, 2014 the Company used approximately $0.9 million of net cash in operating activities, compared with $0.9 million of net cash used in operating activities for the six months ended March 31, 2013. For the six months ended March 31, 2014 we had approximately $2.2 million of cash from investing activities compared with no net cash from investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2013, primarily due to farm-out proceeds, exploration costs and BOEM related deposits incurred for the six months ended March 31, 2014.  For the six months ended March 31, 2014 we had approximately $5.1 million of net cash from financing activities, compared with $0.5 million from financing activities for the six months ended March 31, 2013.  This differential is due primarily to proceeds from the sale of common stock.

 
14

 
 
 
We estimate expenditures of approximately $16.8 million during the 12-month period ending March 31, 2015 for operations and working capital needs.  Expenditures will include lease payments to the BOEM, lease rentals to the BOEM, general and administrative, IT and seismic acquisition and processing.  Set forth below is our best estimate of the deployment of the $16.8 million:

 
·
$7.1 million for leasing activities and lease rentals;
 
·
$5.0 million for general and administrative;
 
·
$0.2 million for IT expenses; and
 
·
$4.5 million for seismic acquisition and processing.

Giving effect to an additional $3.5 million to be funded by Texas South pursuant to the farm-out agreement and current cash on hand, we will need to raise approximately $6.6 million to fund working capital requirements.  Future contingencies, developments and unknown events could cause us to require more working capital during the 12-month period ending March 31, 2015.

The proposed expenditures represent our current best estimate of our working capital needs for the 12 months ended March 31, 2015.  This estimate is subject to change based on the execution of our business plan, our ability to hire more employees, and our ability to obtain additional funding.  We currently do not anticipate that any drilling activity will commence on any leases we may acquire until 2015.

We will need to raise additional funds to cover expenditures planned after March 31, 2015, as well as any additional expenditures that we may encounter in 2015. Future equity financings may be dilutive to our stockholders.  Alternative forms of future financings may include preferences or rights superior to our common stock.  Debt financings may involve a pledge of assets and will rank senior to our common stock.  We have historically financed our operations through private equity and debt financings.  We do not have any credit or equity facilities available with financial institutions, stockholders or third party investors, and will continue to rely on best efforts financings.  The failure to raise sufficient capital could cause us to cease operations.

Item 4.  Controls and Procedures.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act) are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in rules and forms adopted by the Securities and Exchange Commission, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, we evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act).  Based upon that evaluation, our management concluded that, as of March 31, 2014, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at a reasonable assurance level to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC's rules and forms.

Limitations on the Effectiveness of Controls

The Company's management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. The Company's internal control over financial reporting is designed to provide reasonable assurance as to the reliability of the Company's financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles. All internal control systems, no matter how well designed, have inherent limitations. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

During the most recent fiscal quarter covered by this Report, there has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Item 2. Unregistered Sales of Equity Securities and Use of Proceeds

In March 2014, the Company awarded 500,000 shares of restricted stock as an inducement to a new employee, of which one-half vests in April 2015 and the remaining half vests in April 2016.  

In March 2014, the Company issued an aggregate of 1,000,000 shares of restricted stock to two non-employee directors.  The restricted stock is subject to vesting pursuant to which one-half will vest on March 27, 2015 and the remaining one-half will vest on March 27, 2016.  

The securities were offered and sold in reliance upon exemptions from registration pursuant to Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and Rule 506 of Regulation D promulgated under the Securities Act (“Regulation D”), including the fact that each investor was an “accredited investor” within the meaning of Rule 501 of Regulation D.  We requested our stock transfer agent to affix appropriate legends to the stock certificate issued to each purchaser and the transfer agent affixed the appropriate legends.  None of the securities were sold through an underwriter and, accordingly, there were no underwriting discounts or commissions involved.

Item 3. Defaults Upon Senior Securities

None.

Not applicable.
