Note 1. Overview and Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Basis of Presentation
Camelot Corporation, (the Company) was incorporated under the laws of the State of Colorado on September 5, 1975. The Company was formerly a holding company but since it ceased operations in the fiscal year ended April 30, 1999, the Company has had minimal operations. All previous business activities have been discontinued.
Recently the Company has formulated a business plan to investigate the possibilities of a viable mineral deposit on 10 leased mining claims located in Esmeralda County, Nevada, USA.
The Companys fiscal year end is April 30.
Interim Financial Statements
The accompanying interim unaudited financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. In our opinion, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation statement of the results for the interim periods have been made, and all adjustments are of a normal recurring nature. Operating results for the three month period ended July 31, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending April 30, 2011. For further information, refer to the financial statements and footnotes thereto included in our Form 10-K Report for the fiscal year ended April 30, 2011.
The Company has not generated any revenues since it ceased operations in 1999. It is the Companys policy that revenues are recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred (or service has been performed), the sales price is fixed and determinable, and collectability is reasonably assured.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
The Company considers cash in banks, deposits in transit, and highly liquid debt instruments purchased with original maturities of three months or less to be cash and cash equivalents.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amount of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Management routinely makes judgments and estimates about the effects of matters that are inherently uncertain. Estimates that are critical to the accompanying financial statements include the identification and valuation of assets and liabilities, valuation of deferred tax assets, and the likelihood of loss contingencies. Management bases its estimates and judgments on historical experience and on various other factors that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results could differ from these estimates. Estimates and assumptions are revised periodically and the effects of revisions are reflected in the financial statements in the period it is determined to be necessary.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
ASC 825, Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments, requires disclosure of fair value information about financial instruments. ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in generally accepted accounting principles, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. Fair value estimates discussed herein are based upon certain market assumptions and pertinent information available to management as of July 31, 2011.
The respective carrying values of certain on-balance-sheet financial instruments approximate their fair values. These financial instruments include accounts payable, advances payable, accrued liabilities and notes payable. Fair values were assumed to approximate carrying values for these financial instruments since they are short term in nature and their carrying amounts approximate fair value, or they are receivable or payable on demand.
Mineral Property Acquisition and Exploration Costs
The Company has been in the exploration stage since June 11, 2010, and has not yet realized any revenue from its operations. Mineral property acquisition costs are initially capitalized in accordance with accounting standards. The Company assesses the carrying costs for impairment at each fiscal quarter end. If proven and probable reserves are established for a property and it has been determined that a mineral property can be economically developed, capitalized costs will be amortized using the units-of-production method over the estimated life of the probable reserves. To date the Company has not established any proven or probable reserves on its mineral properties. Mineral exploration costs are expensed as incurred.
Deferred income taxes are determined using the liability method under which deferred tax assets and liabilities are based upon temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial and tax reporting purposes and the effect of net operating loss carry-forwards. Deferred tax assets are evaluated to determine if it is more likely than not that they will be realized. Valuation allowances have been established to reduce the carrying value of deferred tax assets in recognition of significant uncertainties regarding their ultimate realization.
Basic and Diluted Earnings (Loss) Per Share
The Company computes earnings (loss) per share in accordance with ASC 260-10-45 Earnings per Share, (SFAS 128) which requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share on the face of the statement of operations. Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net earnings (loss) available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of outstanding common shares during the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period. Dilutive earnings (loss) per share excludes all potential common shares if their effect is anti-dilutive. The Company has no potential dilutive instruments, and therefore, basic and diluted earnings (loss) per share are equal.
Stock based Compensation
The Company accounts for common stock issued to employees for services based on the fair value of the instruments issued, and accounts for common stock issued to other than employees based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instruments, whichever is more reliably measurable. The Company did not make any option grants during 2011, and accordingly, has not recognized any stock based compensation expense related to options.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
There were various accounting standards and updates recently issued, none of which are expected to have a material impact on the Companys financial position, operations, or cash flows.
|Going Concern Note||
Note 2. Going Concern
The Company's financial statements are prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of obligations in the normal course of business. However, the Company has recurring losses, has negative working capital, and has a total stockholders deficit. The Company does not currently have any revenue generating operations. These conditions raise substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern.
In view of these matters, continuation as a going concern is dependent upon continued operations of the Company, which in turn is dependent upon the Companys ability to, meets its financial requirements, raise additional capital, and the success of its future operations. The financial statements do not include any adjustments to the amount and classification of assets and liabilities that may be necessary should the Company not continue as a going concern.
Management plans to fund operations of the Company through advances from existing shareholders, private placement of restricted securities or the issuance of stock in lieu of cash for payment of services until such a time as a business combination or other profitable investment may be achieved. There are no written agreements in place for such funding or issuance of securities and there can be no assurance that such will be available in the future. Management believes that this plan provides an opportunity for the Company to continue as a going concern.
If there is a substantial doubt about an entity's ability to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time (generally a year from the balance sheet date), disclose: (a) pertinent conditions and events giving rise to the assessment of substantial doubt about the entity's ability to continue as a going concern for a reasonable period of time, (b) the possible effects of such conditions and events, (c) management's evaluation of the significance of those conditions and events and any mitigating factors, (d) possible discontinuance of operations, (e) management's plans (including relevant prospective financial information), and (f) information about the recoverability or classification of recorded asset amounts or the amounts or classification of liabilities.
