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

 

Forward-Looking Statements

 

This Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q filed by Red Metal Resources Ltd. contains forward-looking statements. These are statements regarding financial and operating performance and results and other statements that are not historical facts. The words “expect,” “project,” “estimate,” “believe,” “anticipate,” “intend,” “plan,” “forecast,” and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Certain important risks could cause results to differ materially from those anticipated by some of the forward-looking statements. Some, but not all, of these risks include, among other things:

 

·general economic conditions, because they may affect our ability to raise money; 

·our ability to raise enough money to continue our operations; 

·changes in regulatory requirements that adversely affect our business; 

·changes in the prices for minerals that adversely affect our business; 

·political changes in Chile, which could affect our interests there; and/or 

·other uncertainties, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond our control. 

 

We caution you not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which reflect our management’s view only as of the date of this report. We are not obligated to update these statements or publicly release the results of any revisions to them to reflect events or circumstances after the date of this report or to reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events. You should refer to, and carefully review, the information in future documents we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

 

General

 

You should read this discussion and analysis in conjunction with our interim unaudited consolidated financial statements and related notes included in this Form 10-Q and the audited consolidated financial statements and related notes included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended January 31, 2019. The inclusion of supplementary analytical and related information may require us to make estimates and assumptions to enable us to fairly present, in all material respects, our analysis of trends and expectations with respect to our results of operations and financial position taken as a whole. Actual results may vary from the estimates and assumptions we make.

 

Overview

 

Red Metal Resources Ltd. (“Red Metal” or the “Company”) is a mineral exploration company engaged in locating, and eventually developing, mineral resources in Chile. Our business strategy is to identify, acquire and explore prospective mineral claims with a view to either developing them ourselves or, more likely, finding a joint venture partner with the mining experience and financial means to undertake the development. All our claims are in the Candelaria IOCG belt in the Chilean Coastal Cordillera.

 

Consistent with our historical practices, we continue to monitor our costs in Chile by reviewing our mineral claims to determine whether they possess the geological indicators to economically justify the capital to maintain or explore them. Currently, our subsidiary, Minera Polymet SpA, has two employees in Chile and engages independent consultants on as needed basis. Most of our support - such as vehicles, office, and equipment - is supplied under short-term contracts. The only long-term commitments that we have are for royalty payments on four of our mineral claims - Farellon Alto 1-8, Quina 1 - 56, Exeter 1 - 54, and Che. These royalties are payable once exploitation begins. We are also required to pay property taxes that are due annually on all the claims that are included in our properties.

 

The cost and timing of all planned exploration programs are subject to the availability of qualified mining personnel, such as consulting geologists, geo-technicians and drillers, and drilling equipment. Although Chile has a well-trained and qualified mining workforce from which to draw and few early-stage companies such as ours are competing for the available resources, if we are unable to find the personnel and equipment that we need when we need them and at the prices that we have estimated today, we might have to revise or postpone our plans.

Our operating expenses increased by $10,673, or 23.1%, from $46,264 for the three-month period ended October 31, 2018, to $56,937 for the three-month period ended October 31, 2019. The increase in operating expenses during the three-month period ended October 31, 2019, was associated mainly with increased general and administrative expenses, which increased by $4,990, from $17,631 we incurred during the three-month period ended October 31, 2018, to $22,621 for the three months ended October 31, 2019, and which consisted of $14,070 in office expenses (2019 - $3,385), automobile expenses of $1,407 (2019 - $3,286), administrative fees of $6,533 (2019 - $8,323), travel and entertainment expenses of $86 (2019 - $1,817), and bank charges and Chilean value added taxes of $525 (2019 - $820). In addition, our mineral exploration expenses increased by $4,275, from $2,105 for the three-month period ended October 31, 2018, to $6,380 for the three-month period ended October 31, 2019, our salaries, wages, and benefits increased by $1,207, from $15,590 for the three-month period ended October 31, 2018,  to $16,797 for the three-month period ended October 31, 2019, and our professional fees increased by $360 from $9,951 for the three-month period ended October 31, 2018, to $10,311 for the three-month period ended October 31, 2019.

 

The above increases were offset by decreases in regulatory fees from $874 for the three-month period ended October 31, 2018, to $750 for the three-month period ended October 31, 2019, and a decrease in amortization expense from $113 for the three-month period ended October 31, 2018, to $78 for the three-month period ended October 31, 2019.

 

The most significant year-to-date changes in our operating expenses were as follows;

 

·We did not incur any expenses associated with consulting fees and rent of our office, as opposed to $30,000 we incurred during the comparative nine-month period ended October 31, 2018, for consulting, and $5,329 we incurred on account of office rental fees. The reduction was associated with our efforts to control our operating costs. 

 

·Our general and administrative expenses increased by 17.8%, or $7,205 to $47,792 during the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019, as compared to $40,587 we incurred in general and administrative expenses during the comparative period ended October 31, 2018. The increase was associated mostly with increased office expenses, which amounted to $15,238 (2019 - $7,777), automobile expenses of $3,288 (2019 - $5,254), and administrative fees of $21,558 (2019 - $22,329). These increases were in part offset by increased advertising and promotion fees of $2,845 (2019 - $341) and travel and entertainment fees of $2,318 (2019 - $1,871). 

 

·Our mineral and exploration expenses decreased by $2,023, or 13.9%; from $14,510 we incurred during the nine-month period ended October 31, 2018, to $12,487 we incurred during the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019. The higher mineral exploration expenses during the comparative nine-month period ended October 31, 2018, were associated with the payment of 2017/18 and 2018/19 property taxes and late payment fees for the claims that comprise our Mateo Property and for the Cecil claim, which is included in our Farellon Property; these claims were impaired during our Fiscal 2016, however, we retain ownership of these claims. During the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019, we paid our 2019/20 property taxes on the same claims; since our tax payments were up-to-date we were not required to pay any additional fees or penalties. 

 

·During the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019, our salaries paid to the staff employed through our Chilean subsidiary decreased by 5.9% to $49,779 from $52,888 we incurred during the nine-month period ended October 31, 2018. The decrease was associated with fluctuation of foreign exchange rates between Chilean Peso and the US dollar. 

 

·Our professional fees increased by $9,698, or 38.1%, from $25,453 we incurred during the nine-month period ended October 31, 2018, to $35,151 we incurred during the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019. The change was associated mainly with increased legal fees paid by our Chilean subsidiary for property documentation and other regulatory requirements. 

 

Other items. During the second quarter of our Fiscal 2019 we finalized negotiations with several arms-length debt holders, who agreed to forgive, partially or in full, the debt we owed to them. As a result of these negotiations, we recorded $124,512 in extinguishment of debt by arms-length debt holders. In addition, the extinguishment of debt included $38,211 associated with reversal of old debt which exceeded the statute of limitation. We did not have similar transactions during the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019.

During the second quarter of our Fiscal 2019 our related parties agreed to restructure debt we owed to them as at July 31, 2018, by forgiving a total of $ 1,979,844, and extending the due date of the remaining $479,995 to July 31, 2021. Forgiveness of debt and restructuring of loans with related parties resulted in decrease to interest expense from $67,827 we incurred for the nine months ended October 31, 2018, to $45,072 we accrued during the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019. Due to incurring additional debt following July 31, 2018, debt restructure, our interest expenses for the three-month period ended October 31, 2019 increased by 57.4% from $10,755 we accrued for the three months ended October 31, 2018, to $16,923 in interest expense we accrued during the three-month period ended October 31, 2019.

 

Comprehensive loss. Our comprehensive loss for the three-month period ended October 31, 2019, was $91,662 as compared to $89,214 we recorded for the three-month period ended October 31, 2018. During the three-month period ended October 31, 2019, the comprehensive loss included $17,819 loss associated with the foreign exchange translation of the carried balances denominated in other than our functional currencies. During the comparative three-month period ended October 31, 2018, the comprehensive loss included $32,534 loss associated with the foreign exchange translation of the carried balances denominated in other than our functional currencies.

 

Our comprehensive loss for the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019, was $238,856 as compared to the comprehensive loss of $63,946 we recorded for the nine-month period ended October 31, 2018. During the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019, the comprehensive loss included $43,195 loss associated with the foreign exchange translation of the carried balances denominated in other than our functional currencies. During the comparative nine-month period ended October 31, 2018, the comprehensive loss included $11,497 gain associated with the foreign exchange translation of the carried balances denominated in other than our functional currencies.

As of October 31, 2019, we had a cash balance of $4,300, our working capital was represented by a deficit of $379,553 and cash used in operations totaled $123,764 for the period then ended.

 

We did not generate sufficient cash flows from our operating activities to satisfy our cash requirements for the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019. The amount of cash that we have generated from our operations to date is significantly less than our current debt obligations, including our debt obligations under our notes and advances payable. There is no assurance that we will be able to generate sufficient cash from our operations to repay the amounts owing under these notes and advances payable, or to service our other debt obligations.  If we are unable to generate sufficient cash flow from our operations to repay the amounts owing when due, we may be required to raise additional financing from other sources.

Net cash used in operating activities

 

During the nine months ended October 31, 2019, we used net cash of $123,764 in operating activities. We used $150,327 to cover our cash operating costs, and $24,818 to prepay our future expenses and increase our GST receivable. These uses of cash were offset by $33,897 and $5,448 increases to our accounts payable and amounts due to related parties, respectively, and by $12,036 increase in our accrued liabilities, which were mainly associated with an accrual of estimated penalty that we expect to be assessed by the Canada Revenue Agency for late filing of the Canadian tax returns.

 

During the nine months ended October 31, 2018, we used net cash of $196,819 in operating activities. We used $169,854 to cover our cash operating costs, $7,544 and $52,093 to decrease our accounts payable and accrued liabilities, respectively, and $4,646 to pay back accrued interest on a non-related party loan.  These uses of cash were offset by an increase to the amounts we owed to our related parties of $37,037 and, to a minor extent, with $281 decrease in our prepaid expenses and other receivables.

 

Certain non-cash changes included in the net loss for the period

 

During the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019, our outstanding notes payable to related parties resulted in the accrual of $43,469 in interest, and our notes payable to non-related party accumulated $1,603 in interest. In addition, we recorded $262 in amortization of our work truck used for Chilean operations.

 

During the nine months ended October 31, 2018, our outstanding notes payable to related parties resulted in the accrual of $58,653 in interest, and our notes payable to non-related party accumulated $2,012 in interest. In addition, we recorded $7,259 in interest associated with unpaid trade accounts payable with related parties, and $388 in amortization.

 

During the second quarter of our Fiscal 2019, we finalized negotiations with several arms-length debt holders, who agreed to forgive, partially or in full, the debt we owed to them. As a result of these negotiations, we recorded $124,512 in extinguishment of debt by arms-length debt holders. In addition, the extinguishment of debt included $38,211 associated with reversal of old debt which exceeded the statute of limitation.

 

Net cash used in investing activities

 

During the nine months ended October 31, 2019, we spent $11,799 paying 2019/20 mineral property taxes on exploration claims comprising our Perth and Farellon Properties. In addition, we used $50,000 to make the fifth and final option payment pursuant to our option agreement to acquire the Exeter claim.

 

During the nine months ended October 31, 2018, we spent $22,977 paying 2017/18 mineral property taxes which remained unpaid during our Fiscal 2018, and 2018/19 mineral property taxes on exploration claims comprising our Perth and Farellon Properties. In addition, we used $25,000 to make the fourth option payment pursuant to our option agreement to acquire the Exeter claim.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities

 

During the nine months ended October 31, 2019, we borrowed $54,277 (CAD$72,095) and $52,935 from our CEO. During the same period we borrowed $75,000 from Mr. Richard Jeffs, our major shareholder. The loans are unsecured, bear interest at 8% per annum, compounded monthly, and are payable on or after July 31, 2021.

 

During the nine months ended October 31, 2018, we received $187,500 on subscription to 2,500,000 units of our common stock at $0.075 per unit. During the nine months ended October 31, 2018, we borrowed $895 and $63,642 (CAD$82,036) from our CEO. The loans are unsecured, payable on demand and bear interest at 8% per annum, compounded monthly. During the same period we repaid $2,130 in notes payable to an arms-length party.

 

During the nine-month period ended October 31, 2018, we finalized negotiations with our related parties who agreed to restructure the debt we owed to them as at July 31, 2018. As a result of these negotiations, our related parties agreed to forgive us the debt totaling $1,979,844, which was comprised of $456,369 in principal under the notes payable we issued to Mr. Jeffs, our major shareholder, $317,420 in interest accrued on the notes payable we issued to Mr. Jeffs, Ms. Jeffs, our CEO, Fladgate Exploration Consulting Corporation (“Fladgate”), the Company of which Ms. Jeffs and Mr. Thompson are principals, and Mr. da Costa, our CFO. In addition, our related parties also agreed

to forgive a total of $1,206,055 we owed them on account of services they have provided to the Company. Remaining $479,995 in notes payable we issued to Ms. Jeffs, Fladgate, and Mr. da Costa, have been amended to extend the repayment period to no less than three years, or July 31, 2021;   all other terms of the notes payable remained substantially unchanged.

 

Going Concern

 

The consolidated financial statements included in this Quarterly Report have been prepared on a going concern basis, which implies that we will continue to realize our assets and discharge our liabilities in the normal course of business. We have not generated any significant revenues from mineral sales since inception, have never paid any dividends and are unlikely to pay dividends or generate significant earnings in the immediate or foreseeable future. Our continuation as a going concern depends upon the continued financial support of our shareholders, our ability to obtain necessary debt or equity financing to continue operations, and the attainment of profitable operations. Our ability to achieve and maintain profitability and positive cash flow depends upon our ability to locate profitable mineral claims, generate revenue from mineral production and control our production costs. Based upon our current plans, we expect to incur operating losses in future periods, which we plan to mitigate by controlling our operating costs and by sharing mineral exploration expenses through joint venture agreements, if possible.  At October 31, 2019, we had a working capital deficit of $379,553 and accumulated losses of $9,458,961. These factors raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. We cannot assure you that we will be able to generate significant revenues in the future. Our consolidated interim financial statements do not give effect to any adjustments that would be necessary should we be unable to continue as a going concern and therefore be required to realize our assets and discharge our liabilities in other than the normal course of business and at amounts different from those reflected in our financial statements.

Farellon Property. Lease Agreement for Farellon Alto 1-8

 

On August 22, 2018, we entered into a lease agreement (the “Lease Agreement”) with Mr. Lucas Godoy Ocayo (the “Lessee”) to lease out our Farellon Alto 1-8 property (the “Property”) in exchange for a 15% royalty on gross smelter returns of Cobalt extracted from the Property and a 10% royalty on gross smelter returns received from all other minerals extracted from the Property. The Lease Agreement was subject to minimum monthly royalty payments of $1,500, which the Lessee was originally required to start making on November 22, 2018. As at the date of the filing of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we have agreed to terminate the Lease Agreement following the request we received from the Lessee, who has made certain improvements to the road  infrastructure on the Property, however, was not able to commence their mining operations.

 

Farellon Property. Option to Acquire Exeter Claim

 

On June 3, 2015, we entered into an option agreement, made effective on June 15, 2015, with Minera Stamford S.A., to earn 100% interest in a mining claim Exeter 1-54 (the “Exeter Claim”). In order to acquire 100% interest in the Exeter Claim, we were required to pay a total of $150,000 as detailed in the following schedule:

On May 13, 2019, we made our final cash payment of $50,000 to acquire a 100% interest in Exeter Claim. The vendor retains a 1.5% royalty from net smelter returns (“NSR”) on the Exeter claim, which we have the right to buy out for a one-time payment of $750,000.

 

Capital Resources

 

Our ability to acquire and explore our Chilean claims is subject to our ability to obtain the necessary funding. We expect to raise funds through any combination of debt financing and/or sale of our securities. We have no committed sources of capital. If we are unable to raise funds as and when we need them, we may be required to curtail, or even to cease, our operations.

 

Contingencies and Commitments

 

We had no contingencies at October 31, 2019.

 

As of the date of the filing this Quarterly Report, we have the following long-term contractual obligations and commitments:

 

·Farellon royalty. We are committed to paying the vendor a royalty equal to 1.5% on the net sales of minerals extracted from the Farellon Alto 1 - 8 claim up to a total of $600,000. The royalty payments are due monthly once exploitation begins and are subject to minimum payments of $1,000 per month. 

 

·Quina royalty. We are committed to paying a royalty equal to 1.5% on the net sales of minerals extracted from the Quina claim. The royalty payments are due semi-annually once commercial production begins, and are not subject to minimum payments. 

 

·Exeter royalty. We are committed to paying a royalty equal to 1.5% on the net sales of minerals extracted from the Exeter claim. The royalty payments are due semi-annually once commercial production begins, and are not subject to minimum payments. 

 

·Che royalty. We are committed to paying a royalty equal to 1% of the net sales of minerals extracted from the claims to a maximum of $100,000 to the former owner. The royalty payments are due monthly once exploitation begins, and are not subject to minimum payments. 


7


 

·Mineral property taxes. To keep our mineral claims in good standing, we are required to pay mineral property taxes of approximately $35,000 per annum. 

 

Equity Financing

 

During the period covered by this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we did not engage in the financing of our operations through the issuance of our equity securities and relied solely on the debt financing.

 

Based on our operating plan, we anticipate incurring operating losses in the foreseeable future and may require additional equity capital to support our operations and develop our business plan.  If we succeed in completing future equity financings, the issuance of additional shares will result in dilution to our existing shareholders.

 

Debt Financing

 

During the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019, and up to the date of the filing of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, we borrowed a total of $194,681 from related parties.  The loans are unsecured, due on or after July 31, 2021, with interest payable at a rate of 8% per annum, compounded monthly.

 

Challenges and Risks

 

We do not anticipate generating any revenue over the next twelve months, therefore, we plan to fund our operations through any combination of equity or debt financing from the sale of our securities, private loans, joint ventures or through the sale of part interest in our mineral properties. Although we have succeeded in raising funds as we needed them, we cannot assure you that this will continue in the future.  Many things, including, but not limited to, a downturn in the state of the economy or a significant decrease in the price of minerals, could affect the willingness of potential investors to invest in risky ventures such as ours. We may consider entering into additional joint venture partnerships with other resource companies to complete mineral exploration programs on our properties in Chile. If we enter into a joint venture arrangement, we would likely have to assign a percentage of our interest in our mineral claims to our joint venture partner in exchange for the funding.

 

As at October 31, 2019, we owed $839,409 to related parties under long-term notes payable, which will become payable on or after July 31, 2021. In addition to the long-term debt, we had $409,319 in current liabilities, which are payable on demand. We do not have the funds to pay all our current liabilities, and as such, we may decide to offer some vendors to convert the amounts we owe them into shares of our common stock. Because of the low price of our common stock, the issuance of the shares to pay the debt will likely result in dilution to the percentage of outstanding shares of our common stock held by our existing shareholders.

 

Investments in and Expenditures on Mineral Interests

 

Realization of our investments in mineral properties depends upon our maintaining legal ownership, producing from the properties or gainfully disposing of them.

 

Title to mineral claims involves risks inherent in the difficulties of determining the validity of claims as well as the potential for problems arising from the ambiguous conveyancing history characteristic of many mineral claims. Our contracts and deeds have been notarized, recorded in the registry of mines and published in the mining bulletin. We review the mining bulletin regularly to discover whether other parties have staked claims over our ground. We have discovered no such claims. To the best of our knowledge, we have taken the steps necessary to ensure that we have good title to our mineral claims.

 

Foreign Exchange

 

We are subject to foreign exchange risk associated with transactions denominated in foreign currencies.  Foreign currency risk arises from the fluctuation of foreign exchange rates and the degree of volatility of these rates relative to the United States dollar.  We do not believe that we have any material risk due to foreign currency exchange.

Trends, Events or Uncertainties that May Impact Results of Operations or Liquidity

 

Since we rely on sales of our securities and loans to continue our operations, any uncertainty in the equity markets can have a detrimental impact on our operations. Current trends in the industry and uncertainty that exists in equity markets have resulted in less capital available to us and less appetite for risk by investors.  Furthermore, we have found that locating other mineral exploration companies with available funds who are willing to engage in risky ventures such as the exploration of our properties has become very difficult.  If we are unable to raise additional capital, we may not be able to develop our properties or continue our operations.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

We have no off-balance sheet arrangements and no non-consolidated, special-purpose entities.

 

Related-Party Transactions

 

During the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019, and up to the date of the filing of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q we have entered into the following transactions with the directors, executive officers, or holders of more than 5% of our common stock, or members of their immediate families:

 

Loans from Caitlin L. Jeffs

 

During the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019, we borrowed from Caitlin L. Jeffs, our Chief Executive Officer, Secretary, and a member of our Board of Directors, a total of $107,212. The loans are subject to 8% annual interest compounded monthly, are unsecured and due on or after July 31, 2021. Subsequent to October 31, 2019, Ms. Jeffs advanced us further $12,469 at 8% annual interest compounded monthly and repayable on or after July 31, 2021. We used these funds to pay the final option payment to acquire Exeter Claim and to support our operating activities. During the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019, we accrued $34,671 in interest on notes payable we issued to Ms. Jeffs for a total owed under the USD notes payable of $164,679 and $479,910 (CAD$631,561) owed on account of CAD$ notes payable, which were outstanding as at October 31, 2019.

 

Loan from John da Costa

 

During the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019, we accrued $544 on $8,500 note payable we issued to Mr. da Costa, which was outstanding as at October 31, 2019. The note payable accumulates interest at 8% per annum compounded monthly, is unsecured and repayable on or after July 31, 2021.

 

Transactions with Fladgate Exploration Consulting Corporation

 

During the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019, we accrued $6,219 on a total of $98,095 (CAD$129,093) in notes payable we issued to Fladgate. The notes payable accumulate interest at 8% per annum compounded monthly, are unsecured and repayable on or after July 31, 2021.

 

Loans from Richard N. Jeffs

 

During the nine-month period ended October 31, 2019, Mr. Jeffs advanced us $75,000 at 8% annual interest compounded monthly and repayable on or after July 31, 2021. As at October 31, 2019, we accrued $2,035 in interest on these notes payable.

 

Critical Accounting Estimates

 

Preparing financial statements in conformity with the U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect certain of the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the period. The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions. The Company bases its estimates and assumptions on current facts, historical experience and various other factors it believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities and the accrual of costs and expenses that are not readily apparent from other sources. The actual results experienced by the Company may differ materially and adversely from the Company’s estimates. To the extent there are material differences between the estimates and the actual results,

future results of operations will be affected. The most significant estimates with regard to these financial statements relate to carrying values of unproved mineral properties.

 

Financial Instruments

 

Our financial instruments include cash, prepaids and other receivables, accounts payable, accrued liabilities, amounts due to related parties and notes payable. The fair value of these financial instruments approximates their carrying values due to their short maturities.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.

 

As a smaller reporting company, we are not required to provide this disclosure.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

(a) Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Caitlin Jeffs, our Chief Executive Officer and President, and John da Costa, our Chief Financial Officer, have evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as the term is defined in Rules 13a-15 and 15d-15 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934) as of the end of the quarter covered by this report (the “Evaluation Date”). Based on their assessment, as of the Evaluation Date, our disclosure controls and procedures are not effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in the reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms due to lack of segregation of duties.

 

(b) Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

During the quarter covered by this report, there were no changes to our internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
