1. REPORTING ENTITY
Anderson Energy Ltd. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries (collectively "Anderson" or the "Company") are engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of oil and gas properties in western Canada. Anderson is a public company incorporated and domiciled in Canada. Anderson's common shares and convertible debentures are listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange. The Company's registered office and principal place of business is 2200, 333 - 7th Avenue S.W., Calgary, Alberta, Canada, T2P 2Z1.
The Company is continuing the process to identify, examine and consider a range of strategic alternatives available to the Company with a view to enhancing shareholder value. The strategic alternatives considered may include, but are not limited to, a sale of all or a material portion of the assets of Anderson, or a drilling joint venture, either in one transaction, or in a series of transactions, the outright sale of the Company, or a merger or other strategic transaction involving Anderson and a third party. The strategic review process is still ongoing and the Company will continue to identify, examine and consider a full range of strategic alternatives.
It is Anderson's current intention to not disclose developments with respect to its strategic alternatives process unless and until the Board of Directors has approved a specific transaction or otherwise determines that disclosure is necessary in accordance with applicable law. The Company cautions that there are no assurances or guarantees that the process will result in a transaction or, if a transaction is undertaken, the terms or timing of such a transaction or the impact it will have on the Company's financial position. The Company has not set a definitive schedule to complete the evaluation.
2. BASIS OF PREPARATION
(a) Statement of compliance:
The condensed interim consolidated financial statements comply with International Accounting Standard 34 Interim Financial Reporting and do not include all of the information required for full annual financial statements.
The condensed interim consolidated financial statements were authorized for issuance by the Board of Directors on May 13, 2013.
(b) Accounting policies, judgments, estimates and disclosures:
In preparing these condensed interim consolidated financial statements, the accounting policies, methods of computation and significant judgements made by management in applying the Company's accounting policies and key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those that applied to the audited consolidated financial statements as at and for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 except as disclosed below.
On January 1, 2013, the Company adopted new standards with respect to consolidations (IFRS 10), joint arrangements (IFRS 11), disclosure of interests in other entities (IFRS 12), fair value measurements (IFRS 13) and amendments to financial instruments disclosures (IFRS 7). The adoption of these standards had no impact on the amounts recorded in the consolidated financial statements as at January 1, 2013 or on the comparative periods, but did result in additional disclosures with regards to IFRS 13 and IFRS 7.
The following disclosures are incremental to those included with the annual audited consolidated financial statements. Certain disclosures that are normally required in the notes to the annual audited consolidated financial statements have been condensed or omitted. These condensed interim consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company's audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto for the years ended December 31, 2012 and 2011.
