PART III – NARRATIVE

 

State below in reasonable detail the reasons why Form 10-K, 10-KSB, 11-K, 20-F, 10-Q, 10-QSB, N-SAR or the transition report portion thereof could not be filed within the prescribed time period.

 

As disclosed in the Current Report on Form 8-K filed by Petro River Oil Corp. (the “Company”, formerly known as Gravis Oil Corporation) with the Securities and Exchange Commission on September 13, 2012, the Company’s stockholders approved (i) amendment of its articles of incorporation to change the name of the Company from “Gravis Oil Corporation” to “Petro River Oil Corp.”, (ii) a continuance of the Company from Alberta, Canada into the State of Delaware as if it had been incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware (the “Continuance”), and (iii) amendment of its articles of incorporation to change the authorized shares of the Company as reflected in the Certificate of Incorporation of the Company filed as an exhibit to the referenced Form 8-K. Accordingly, the quarter ended October 31, 2012, is the first quarter for which the Company is filing a report on Form 10-Q that includes financial statements comparing a prior period during which it was a foreign private issuer and the auditors require additional time to review the financial statements. Accordingly, the Company is not able to file its Form 10-Q in a timely manner without unreasonable effort or expense.

Six months ended October 31, 2012 compared to six months ended October 31, 2011:

 

The following discussion involves our results of operations for the six months ended October 31, 2012 compared to the six months ended October 31, 2011.

 

We had no revenues for the six months ended October 31, 2012, compared to revenues of $430,164 for the six months ended October 31, 2011. The absence of revenue is primarily attributable to a reduction or suspension of all of our operations by during the second quarter of 2011.

 

Operating expenses, which include general and administrative expenses, for the six months ended October 31, 2012, were $1,056,496 compared to expenses of $2,851,045 for the six months ended October 31, 2011. The decrease of $1,794,549, or approximately 63%, is mainly attributable to reduction of direct operating expenses of $1,108,489 and general and administrative expenses of $484,756, primarily attributable to an reduction or suspension of all of our operations by during the second quarter of 2011.

 

Interest expense, primarily composed of interest on our Senior Notes and Junior Notes was $1,142,705 and $2,093,224 for the six months ended October 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

 

We had net income (loss) of ($1,876,294) for the six months ended October 31, 2012 compared to net income (loss) of $8,364,290 for the six months ended October 31, 2011. This increase in net income (loss) of ($10,240,584) or approximately 122% is mainly attributable to a change in fair value of derivative liabilities of ($12,959,547) for the six months ended October 31, 2011 as compared to ($294,475) for the six months ended October 31, 2012.
