PART - 8 : LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL MANAGEMENT

The Company’s Interim Financial Statements reflect a working capital deficiency of $262,601 at 31 December 2017. At the end of the Company's Fiscal 2017 year, on 30 June 2017, the working capital deficiency was $1,721,256, a decrease of $1,458,655 during This Period.

During This Period, the Company spent $241,648 on its operations. It received $350,000 in unit private placements and $20,000 from exercise of warrants, and also received a further $74,426 from CHI in reimbursable cash advances. The Company also repaid a loan from a director of $13,100, for net cash flows from financing activities of $431,326.

The Company has no significant operations that generate cash flow and its long term financial success is dependent on management’s ability to develop new business opportunities which become profitable. These undertakings can take many years and are subject to factors that are beyond the Company’s control.

In order to finance the Company’s growth and develop new business opportunities and to cover administrative and overhead expenses, the Company raises money through equity sales and from the exercise of convertible securities. Many factors influence the Company’s ability to raise such funds, including the health of the capital markets, the climate for investment in the sectors the Company is considering, the Company’s track record, and the experience and caliber of its management.

The Company does not have sufficient funds to meet its administrative requirements and business development objectives over the next twelve months. Actual funding requirements may vary from those planned due to a number of factors, including providing for new opportunities as they arise. The Company believes it will be able to raise the necessary capital it requires, but recognizes there will be risks involved that may be beyond its control. The Company is actively sourcing new capital.

The Company’s objectives when managing capital are to safeguard the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern in order to pursue new business development and to maintain a flexible capital structure for its projects for the benefits of its stakeholders. The Company's principal source of funds is from the issuance of common shares. In the management of capital, the Company includes the components of shareholders’ equity as well as cash and receivables.

The Company manages the capital structure and makes adjustments to it in light of changes in economic conditions and the risk characteristics of the underlying assets. To maintain or adjust the capital structure, the Company may attempt to issue new shares, enter into joint venture arrangements, acquire or dispose of assets, or adjust the amount of cash and short-term investments. The Company’s investment policy is to invest its cash in liquid short-term interest-bearing investments selected with regard to the expected timing of expenditures from continuing operations. The Company is not subject to any externally imposed capital requirements and there was no change in the Company’s capital management during This Quarter.

PART - 9 : RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES

The Company has no history of profitable operations and is currently in the early stages of its development. As such, the Company is subject to many risks common to such enterprises, including under-capitalization, cash shortages and limitations with respect to personnel, financial and other resources and the lack of revenues. There is no assurance that the Company will be successful in achieving a return on shareholders' investment and the likelihood of success must be considered in light of its early stage of operations.

The Company has no source of operating cash flow and no assurance that additional funding will be available to it to take advantage of further growth and development of new opportunities and projects when required. Although the Company has been successful in the past in obtaining financing through the sale of equity securities or joint ventures, there can be no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain adequate financing in the future or that the terms of such financing will be favorable. Failure to obtain such additional financing could result in the delay or indefinite postponement of further growth or new opportunity development.

The Company is very dependent upon the personal efforts and commitment of its existing management. To the extent that management's services would be unavailable for any reason, a disruption to the operations of the Company could result, and other persons would be required to manage and operate the Company.

PART - 12 : CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES AND ESTIMATES

The preparation of financial statements in accordance with IFRS requires that the Company’s management make judgments and estimates and form assumptions that affect the amounts in the financial statements and the related notes to those financial statements. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The Company reviews its judgments, estimates, and assumptions on an ongoing basis based on historical experience and other factors that are considered to be relevant under the circumstances. The Company’s critical accounting policies and estimates applied in the preparation of its Interim Financial Statements are the same as those applied to the audited financial statements for the last fiscal year ended 30 June 2017, other than judgements and estimates involved with the acquisition of CHI and conversion of promissory note, as disclosed in the Interim Financial Statements.

PART - 13 : FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

The Company’s financial instruments as at the end of This Quarter, consist of cash, accounts payable and accrued liabilities and the loan payable to its CEO. The fair value of these instruments approximates their carrying value due to their short-term maturity. There were no off-balance sheet financial instruments.

Cash, other than minor amounts of Indonesian Rupiahs, consist solely of cash deposits with major Canadian banks. The Company therefore considers its credit risk to be low. The Company does not use derivative or hedging instruments to reduce its exposure to fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates involving Canadian dollar and Indonesian Rupiah. However, as the Company holds its funds primarily in US dollars, the risk of foreign exchange loss is considered low by the Company’s management.

Continental Energy Corporation
NOTES TO THE INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited – Prepared by Management and expressed in US Dollars)
31 DECEMBER 2017

 

1.     

Nature of Operations and Going Concern

Continental Energy Corporation (“Continental” or the “Company”) is incorporated under the laws of the Province of British Columbia, Canada. The Company’s registered address and records office is 1500-1055 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada V6E 4N7.

The Company has historically been engaged in the assembly of a portfolio of oil and gas exploration properties outside North America but has begun diversifying its business into a broader range upstream and downstream oil and gas activities. These include new small-scale, distributed oil refineries and gas-turbine power plant developments fully integrated with smaller and stranded oil and gas production in underserved local markets in Indonesia.

These Interim Financial Statements have been prepared on the basis of accounting principles applicable to a going concern, which assumes that the Company will continue in operation for the foreseeable future and will be able to realize its assets and discharge its liabilities in the normal course of operations. The Company has incurred operating losses over the past several fiscal years and has no current source of operating cash flows. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to obtain the financing necessary to acquire and develop its projects as well as fund ongoing administration expenses. There are no assurances that sufficient funding will be available.

Management intends to obtain additional funding by issuing common shares in private placements. There can be no assurance that management’s future financing actions will be successful. Management is not able to assess the likelihood or timing of raising capital for future expenditures or acquisitions.

These uncertainties indicate the existence of material uncertainty that cast significant doubt on the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern in the future. If the going concern assumption were not appropriate for these Interim Financial Statements, liquidation accounting would apply, and adjustments would be necessary to the carrying values and classification of assets, liabilities, the reported income and expenses, and such adjustments could be material.

2. Basis of Preparation

These Interim Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standards (“IAS”) 34, Interim Financial Reporting, and are based on the principles of International Financial Reporting Standards (“IFRS”) as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board and interpretations thereof made by the International Financial Reporting Interpretations Committee.

These Interim Financial Statements should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements for the last fiscal year ended 30 June 2017, which were also prepared in accordance with the same methods of application and include all of the Company’s accounting policies and other required disclosures.

The Company’s Board of Directors has delegated the responsibility and authority for approving quarterly financial statements and MD&A to its Audit Committee. The Audit Committee approved these Interim Financial Statements on 27 February 2018.

These Interim Financial Statements are consolidated and include the accounts of the Company's subsidiary, Continental Hilir Indonesia Pte. Ltd. (“CHI”) since its acquisition on 31 August 2017 (Note 4). The Company also setup additional subsidiaries during the period to hold licenses which permit them to build, own, and operate crude oil refineries in Indonesia. The accounts for these subsidiaries, namely, PTI Continental Hilir Indonesia and PT Kilang Kaltim Continental, are included in these Interim Financial Statements since the date of their setup.

These Interim Financial Statements have been prepared on a historical cost basis and presented in United States (“US”) dollars, the functional currency of the Company, except where otherwise indicated.

3.     

Significant Accounting Estimates and Judgments

The preparation of these Interim Financial Statements in accordance with IFRS requires that the Company’s management make judgments and estimates and form assumptions that affect the amounts in the financial statements and related notes to those financial statements. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Judgments, estimates and assumptions are reviewed on an ongoing basis based on historical experience and other factors that are considered to be relevant under the circumstances. Revisions to judgments, estimates and assumptions are accounted for prospectively.

(Unaudited – Prepared by Management and expressed in US Dollars)
31 DECEMBER 2017

 

In preparing these Interim Financial Statements, the significant judgments made by management in applying the Company’s accounting policies and the key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those applied to the audited financial statements for the last fiscal year ended 30 June 2017, other than judgements and estimates involved with the acquisition of CHI and conversion of promissory note, which are highlighted in Notes 4 and 5, respectively.

4. Acquisition

The Company entered into a Joint Development Agreement dated 4 January 2017 (the "JDA") with CHI, a privately held Singapore company, regarding the development of small scale crude oil refinery projects in Indonesia.

On 31 August 2017, the Company closed a deal with eight subscribers and shareholders (the “Subscribers”) of CHI, who had invested a total of $700,000 into CHI, consisting of $550,000 in cash and $150,000 in management services to CHI. Of this amount, CHI had made non-interest bearing reimbursable advances directly to the benefit of the Company of $376,416. Upon closure of the deal the JDA between CHI and the Company was terminated and extinguished.

In accordance with separate settlement and disposition agreements with each one of the Subscribers, the Company reimbursed the entire $700,000 to the Subscribers by way of the issue of its own securities in an aggregate amount of 14,000,000 Units (the “Units”) at a value of $0.05 per Unit. Each Unit consists of one common share of the Company and one warrant to purchase an additional common share at a fixed price of $0.10 per common share for a term of one year from issue. With issue of the Units, the Company discharged $376,416 in debt and also acquired the Subscribers’ allocated shares of CHI such that the Company acquired majority ownership in CHI.

Three of the Subscribers are also directors of the Company. The other subscribers are all arms-length and unrelated parties to the Company. Each one of the related parties received 1,000,000 of the Units upon issue on the same terms as the arms-length Subscribers.

Three subscribers to shares of CHI elected not to participate in the deal and instead retain rights to take up an allocated but unissued total of 115,000 common shares of CHI purchased for total investment into CHI for $115,000. These shares would represent a 14% stake in CHI if issued. CHI has made provisions to reimburse this amount $115,000 and this amount is included in accounts payable and accrued liabilities.

The allocation of the purchase price was as follows:

Fair value of 14,000,000 shares issued (Note 6) $ 700,000  
Fair value of 14,000,000 warrants issued (Note 6)   204,400  
Total consideration   904,400  
Net assets (liabilities) acquired from CHI      
Prepayments and advances   108,559  
Accounts payable and accrued liabilities   (115,000 )
Net liabilities acquired   (6,441 )
 
Excess consideration   910,841  
Cash advances settled    (376,416 )
 
Transaction cost $ 534,425  

CHI is an early stage entity and does not qualify as a business under IFRS. Given its lack of significant assets, the excess of consideration paid over the net liabilities of CHI and the amount previously advanced to Continental, was expensed through the Company’s statement of loss as transaction cost.

On 21 September 2011, the Company issued a convertible promissory note for proceeds of $250,000. The promissory note paid interest at 18% per annum and could be converted to the common shares of the Company at $0.05 per share.

On 31 August 2017, the Company settled the convertible promissory note and accumulated interest thereon in an aggregate amount of $517,500 by the issue to the note holder of 10,350,000 units of the Company at $0.05 per unit. Each unit consists of one common share of the Company and one warrant to purchase an additional common share at a fixed price of $0.10 per common share for a term of one year.

The fair value of the warrants included in the units amounted to $151,110 and was determined using the Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions: expected dividend yield: 0%, expected stock price volatility: 125%, risk-free interest rate: 1.23%, expected life of warrants (years): 1.00. The Company recognized this fair value in its statement of loss as financing cost.

Upon conversion of the debt, the value of the conversion option of $92,966, previously recorded as a separate category within equity, was reclassified from conversion rights reserve to share capital.

6. Share Capital

Authorized Share Capital

The Units were recorded at their fair value, being $700,000 for common shares and $204,400 for the share purchase warrants. The fair value of the share purchase warrants was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions: expected dividend yield: 0%, expected stock price volatility: 125%, risk-free interest rate: 1.21%, expected life of warrants (years): 1.00.

On 7 September 2017, 2,000,000 warrants with exercise price of $0.01 per share were exercised for gross proceeds of $20,000 (Note 7).

On 28 November 2017, pursuant to a private placement, the Company issued 6,000,000 units of the Company at $0.05 per unit, for proceeds of $300,000. Each unit consists of one common share of the Company and one warrant to purchase an additional common share at a fixed price of $0.10 per common share for a term of one year. No brokers or finders’ fees were incurred. The Company allocated $283,554 to common shares and $16,446 to the share purchase warrants based on management’s estimate of relative fair values. The fair value of the share purchase warrants was estimated using the Black-Scholes option pricing model with the following assumptions: expected dividend yield: 0%, expected stock price volatility: 125%, risk-free interest rate: 1.61%, expected life of warrants (years): 1.00.

On 29 December 2017, the Company issued 1,000,000 to settle a payable to the CEO of $50,000. These common shares had a fair value of $0.02 per share on the date of issuance for a total value of $20,000, resulting in gain on settlement of debt of $30,000.
