Note 1 – Organization




Foothills Exploration, Inc., (“Company”, “Foothills Exploration”, or “Foothills”) was incorporated in the state of Delaware on May 13, 2010, under the name “Key Link Assets Corp.” for the purpose of acquiring a portfolio of heavily discounted real estate properties in the Chicago metropolitan area. The Company changed its focus and planned to acquire small and medium sized grocery stores in non-urban locales that are not directly served by large national supermarket chains.


On May 2, 2016, Foothills Petroleum Inc., a Nevada corporation (“FPI”), acquired over 14.1 million pre-split (56.4 million post-split) shares of the Company’s common stock constituting approximately 96% of our then issued and outstanding shares (“FPI Acquired Shares”). As of May 16, 2016, we effected a 4:1 forward split of our shares of common stock.


On May 27, 2016, the Company entered into a Share Exchange Agreement with shareholders of FPI.


Prior to the Share Exchange, the Company had minimal assets and recognized no revenues from operations and was accordingly classified as a shell company. In light of closing the Share Exchange transaction with the shareholders of FPI, the Company became actively engaged in oil and gas operations and is no longer a shell company.


The consolidated balance sheets include the accounts of the Company, and its wholly-owned direct and indirect subsidiaries, Foothills Exploration, Inc. (“FTXP”), Foothills Petroleum, Inc. (“FPI”), Foothills Exploration, LLC (“FEL”), Foothills Petroleum Operating, Inc. (“FPOI”), Foothills Exploration Operating, Inc. (“FEOI”), Tiger Energy Partners International, LLC (“TEPI”), Tiger Energy Operating, LLC (“TEO”), and Tiger Energy Mineral Leasing, LLC (“TEML”).


The Company’s oil and gas operations are conducted by its wholly owned indirect subsidiaries. FEL is a qualified oil and gas operator in the states of Wyoming and Colorado, and TEO is a qualified oil and gas operator in the state of Utah.


The Company’s operating entities have historically employed, and will continue in the future to employ, on an as-needed basis, the services of drilling contractors, other drilling related vendors, field service companies and professional petroleum engineers, geologists, and landmen as required in connection with future drilling and production operations.
