Business

 

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 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.

 

On May 23, 2019, Foothills Exploration, Inc., through its indirect wholly owned subsidiary, Foothills Exploration, LLC (the “Company”), entered into a letter agreement for the purchase and sale of oil and gas assets (the “Agreement”) with an unrelated third party (the “Seller”), concerning the acquisition of a total of 87 wells and associated acreage located in Montana (the “Assets”).

 

The Assets consist of 29 natural gas wells, 10 producing and 19 shut-in, plus associated acreage, additional miscellaneous leases, associated pipelines, gathering systems, compression and processing facilities, and related yards and equipment, located in Sweet Grass and Stillwater counties, Montana – comprising of the Rapelje, Lake Basin and Six Shooter Fields. The Assets also include oil properties consisting of 58 oil and injection wells with associated acreage located in Musselshell and Rosebud Counties, Montana – 12 proved developed producing wells, 25 proved developed non-producing wells, and 21 injection wells – comprising of the Sumatra and Big Wall / Little Wall fields. The oil properties currently generate approximately $1.1 million in annual gross revenues.

Going Concern

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, which contemplate continuation of the Company as a going concern. The Company has incurred recurring losses from inception through June 30, 2019, has a working capital deficit at June 30, 2019, of $23,789,371, and has limited sources of revenue. These conditions have raised substantial doubt as to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern for one year from the issuance of the financial statements. These financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

To address these matters, the Company is actively meeting with investors for possible equity investments, including business combinations; investigating other possible sources to refinance our existing debt; and in continuing discussions with various individuals and groups that could be willing to provide capital to fund operations and growth of the Company.
