Note 1. Nature of Business and Going Concern Assumption

The Company was originally incorporated under the laws of the State of Florida on May 3, 1989 as Sparta Ventures Corp. and remained inactive until June 27, 1998.  The name of the Company was changed to Thermal Ablation Technologies Corporation on October 8, 1998 and then to Poker.com, Inc. on August 10, 1999.  On September 15, 2003, the Company changed its name to LegalPlay Entertainment Inc. and on November 8, 2006, the name of the Company was changed to Synthenol Inc.  Effective November 3, 2008, the Company merged with and into a wholly-owned subsidiary, SinoCubate, Inc. (“SinoCubate, Inc.”), which remained the surviving entity of the merger.  SinoCubate was formed in the State of Nevada on September 11, 2008.  The merger resulted in a change of name of the Company from Synthenol Inc. to SinoCubate, Inc. and a change in the state of incorporation of the Company from Florida to Nevada.  On June 13, 2012, the Company changed its name to Viking Investments Group, Inc., and effective July 16, 2012, The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (“FINRA”) approved this name change.


On June 29, 2011, and on August 29, 2011, Viking Investments Group,  LLC, a company controlled and managed by the Company’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, Tom Simeo, incorporated under the laws of The Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis (“Viking Nevis”), sold 100,000 and 466,813 shares respectively of China Wood, Inc., publicly listed in the United States with the ticker “CNWD”, (the “China Wood Shares”) owned by Viking Nevis, in exchange for 1,912,000 and 12,569,420 newly issued restricted shares of the Company respectively (the “Company Shares”). Also on August 29, 2011, the Company acquired, from Tom Simeo, the Company’s Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President, Viking Investments Group, LLC, incorporated in Delaware (“Viking Delaware”) for a value of One Hundred Dollars ($100).  By August 29, 2011, the Company completed the purchase of the China Wood Shares by having delivered a total of 566,813 shares of common stock in China Wood, Inc. to the Company.  The China Wood Shares were registered in a Form S-1 Registration Statement declared effective by the SEC on April 7, 2011. The China Wood Shares are subject to a “Leak-Out Provision” whereby only a certain amount of shares can be sold per month up and until the first anniversary of the effective day of the aforementioned registration statement, April 7, 2012. The Company accounted the exchange of shares under ASC 845 - Nonmonetary transactions. Due to the fact that the exchange of shares had no commercial substance, the Company recorded the China Wood Shares as a long-term investment and valued the shares at the carrying value on the transaction date. The shares were fully impaired as of December 31, 2011. See Note 2 and 4 for additional information.


The Company’s current business plan is to provide incubate resources and services to support the successful development of late stage, non-publicly-listed companies based in the United States and emerging growth countries with the ultimate goal and endeavor for them to become publicly listed in the United States.  This incubate service includes financing, professional advisory services, board member services, CFO services, corporate governance advice and general corporate management advisory services to entrepreneurs and their advisers in consideration for a fee, comprised of either cash or equity, or a combination of both (hereinafter referred to as a “Transaction” or plural “Transactions”). It is believed that successful completion of a business incubation program increases the likelihood that a company will stay in business for the long term.  The Company is neither an underwriter as the term is defined in Section 2(a)(11) of the Securities Act of 1933, nor an investment company pursuant to the Investment Company Act of 1940.  The Company is not an investment adviser pursuant to the Investment Advisers Act of 1940.  The Company is not registered with The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority “FINRA” or Securities Investor Protection Corporation (“SIPC”). 


As at June 30, 2012, the Company had an accumulated loss of $4,380,930 and had cash balances in the amount of $4,891. The Company’s loss in 2012 was higher than 2011 as a result of increased wage, office rental and other administrative expenses. The Company’s ability to continue as a going concern is dependent upon its ability to generate future profitable operations and/or to obtain the necessary financing to meet its obligations and to repay its liabilities arising from normal business operations when they come due. Management has no formal plan in place to address this concern but considers that the Company will be able to obtain additional funds by equity financing and/or related party advances; however there is no assurance of additional funding being available.
