NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

NOTE 1.      ORGANIZATION AND BASIS OF PRESENTATION

 

Organization and business

First Equity Properties, Inc. is a Nevada based corporation organized in December 19, 1996 and the Company is headquartered in Dallas, TX. The Company’s principal line of business and source of revenue is currently investments and interest on notes receivable. The Company is currently in the business of real estate investing. FEPI is a publicly traded company; however, no trading market presently exists for the shares of common stock and its value is therefore not determinable.

 

Basis of presentation

The accompanying unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States, or GAAP, have been condensed or omitted in accordance with such rules and regulations, although management believes the disclosures are adequate to prevent the information presented from being misleading. In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring matters) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.

These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2019.  Operating results for the three month period ended March 31, 2020 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for any subsequent quarter or for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2020.

 

Cost capitalization

Costs related to planning and developing a project are capitalized and classified as Real Estate development costs in the Consolidated Balance Sheets. We capitalized certain operating expenses until development is substantially complete, but no later than one year from the cessation of major development activity.

 

Newly issued accounting pronouncements

We have considered all other newly issued accounting guidance that is applicable to our operations and the preparation of our statements, including that which we have not yet adopted. We do not believe that any such guidance will have a material effect on our financial position or results of operation.

 

NOTE 2. FEDERAL INCOME TAXES

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification, (“ASC”) No. 740, “Accounting for Income Taxes”. ASC 740 requires an asset and liability approach to financial accounting for income taxes. In the event differences between the financial reporting basis and the tax basis of the Company’s assets and liabilities result in deferred tax assets, ASC 740 requires an evaluation of the probability of being able to realize the future benefits indicated.

Recognition of the benefits of deferred tax assets will require the Company to generate future taxable income. There is no assurance that the Company will generate earnings in future years.

NOTE 3. NOTES RECEIVABLE AND ACCRUED INTEREST – RELATED PARTIES

Receivables from related parties primarily consist of two notes of $1,164,113 and $389,154 which are due to the Company in quarterly installments of interest only. The notes accrue interest at 10% per annum.  The maturity date of these notes has been extended to December 31, 2021.

Long term debt and accrued interest is due December 31, 2021.

 

 

NOTE 5. RELATED PARTIES TRANSACTIONS

Transactions involving related parties cannot be presumed to be carried out on an arm’s length basis due to the absence of free market forces that naturally exist in business dealings between two or more unrelated entities. Related party transactions may not always be favorable to our business and may include terms, conditions and agreements that are not necessarily beneficial to or in best interest of our company.

The Company has an administrative agreement with Pillar Income Asset Management, Inc., an affiliated entity, for accounting and administrative services. The total expense of the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $18,000 which is included in General and Administrative expenses of the Statements of Operations.

 

 

NOTE 6. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

During 2020, a strain of coronavirus (“COVID – 19”) was reported, resulting in decreased economic activity and concerns about pandemic, which would adversely affect the broader global economy. At this point, the extent to which COVID – 19 may impact the global economy and our business is uncertain, but pandemics or other significant public health events could have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations.

 

The Company has evaluated subsequent events through May 13, 2020, the date the financial statements were available to be issued, and has determined that there are none to be reported.

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENTS DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and notes thereto appearing elsewhere in this report. This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q contains forward-looking statements within the meaning of the federal securities laws. We caution investors that any forward-looking statements presented in this report, or which management may make orally or in writing from time to time, are based on beliefs and assumptions made by, and information currently available to, management. When used, the words “anticipate”, “believe”, “estimate”, “expect”, “intend”, “may”, “might”, “plan”, “project”, “result”, “should”, “will” and similar expressions which do not relate solely to historical matters are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are subject to risks, uncertainties and assumptions and are not guarantees of future performance, which may be affected by known and unknown risks, trends, uncertainties and factors that are beyond our control. Should one or more of these risks or uncertainties materialize, or should underlying assumptions prove incorrect, actual results may vary materially from those anticipated, estimated or projected by the forward-looking statements. We caution you that while forward-looking statements reflect our good-faith beliefs when we make them, they are not guarantees of future performance and are impacted by actual events when they occur after we make such statements. Accordingly, investors should use caution in relying on forward-looking statements, which are based on results and trends at the time they are made, to anticipate future results or trends.

Related parties

 

We apply ASC Topic 805, “Business Combinations”, to evaluate business relationships. Related parties are persons or entities who have one or more of the following characteristics, which include entities for which investments in their equity securities would be required, trust for the benefit of persons including principal owners of the entities and members of their immediate families, management personnel of the entity and members of their immediate families and other parties with which the entity may deal if one party controls or can significantly influence the decision making of the other to an extent that one of the transacting parties might be prevented from fully pursuing its own separate interests, or affiliates of the entity.

Results of Operations

The following discussion is based on our Statement of Operations within our Financial Statements as presented in Part 1, Item 1 of this report for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019. The discussion is not meant to be an all-inclusive discussion of the changes within our operations. Instead, we have focused on the significant items relevant to obtain an understanding of the changes in our operations.

The results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2020, are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for other interim periods or for the full fiscal year.

Our sole source of income is from the interest received on affiliated receivables. The principal balances on those receivables have been consistent for the past years, thus making our revenues consistent from year to year. Expenses are primarily related to professional and administrative fees and interest on affiliated notes.

Comparison of the three months ended March 31, 2020 to the same period ended 2019.

We reported net loss applicable to common shareholders of ($28,839) for the three months ended March 31, 2020 as compared to a net loss to common shareholders of ($27,707) for the same period ended 2019.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

General

Our principal liquidity needs for the next twelve months are funding of normal recurring expenses including interest expense and legal and administrative fees.

Our principal source of cash is proceeds from interest income on our notes receivables. The following impacted our balance sheet as of March 31, 2020:

Our accounts receivable – related parties decreased due to the return of short term funding to a related party.

Our cash and cash equivalents increased due to the return of short term funding from a related party.

Our accounts payable – other increased due to the accrual of the 2019 audit review fees.

ITEM 3.CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES
(a)Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures.

A review and evaluation was performed by management under the supervision and with the participation of the Principal Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures, as required by Rule 13a-15(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), as of March 31, 2020. Based upon that most recent evaluation, which was completed as of the end of the period covered by this Form 10-Q, the Principal Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were effective at March 31, 2020 to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports that the Company files submits under the Securities Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time period specified by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) rules and forms. As a result of this evaluation, there were no significant changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the period ended March 31, 2020 that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

 

(b)Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting. There have been no changes in the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting during the quarter ended March 31, 2020, that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect the Company’s internal controls over financial reporting.
