LOON ENERGY CORPORATION CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS FOR THE YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2009 AND 2008 Management s Report The Consolidated Financial Statements of Loon Energy Corporation and related financial information were prepared by, and are the responsibility of Management. The Consolidated Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles. The Consolidated Financial Statements and related financial information reflect amounts which must of necessity be based upon informed estimates and judgments of Management with appropriate consideration to materiality. The Company has developed and maintains systems of controls, policies and procedures in order to provide reasonable assurance that assets are properly safeguarded, and that the financial records and systems are appropriately designed and maintained, and provide relevant, timely and reliable financial information to Management. KPMG LLP are the external auditors appointed by the shareholders, and they have conducted an independent examination of the corporate and accounting records in order to express an Auditors Opinion on these Consolidated Financial Statements. The Board of Directors has established an Audit Committee. The Audit Committee reviews with Management and the external auditors any significant financial reporting issues, the Consolidated Financial Statements, and any other matters of relevance to the parties. The Audit Committee meets quarterly to review and approve the interim financial statements prior to their release, as well as annually to review the Company s annual Consolidated Financial Statements and Management s Discussion and Analysis and to recommend their approval to the Board of Directors. The external auditors have unrestricted access to the Company, the Audit Committee and the Board of Directors. Signed Norman W. Holton Chief Executive Officer Signed Paul H. Rose, CA Chief Financial Officer April 29, 2010 KPMG LLP Chartered Accountants Telephone (403) th Avenue SW Telefax (403) Calgary AB T2P 4B9 Internet AUDITORS' REPORT TO THE SHAREHOLDERS We have audited the consolidated balance sheets of Loon Energy Corporation as at December 31, 2009 and 2008 and the consolidated statements of operations, deficit, other comprehensive loss, accumulated other comprehensive loss and cash flows for the years then ended. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Company s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with Canadian generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform an audit to obtain reasonable assurance whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. In our opinion, these financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as at December 31, 2009 and 2008 and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years then ended in accordance with Canadian generally accepted accounting principles.

Basis of preparation Loon Energy Corporation was incorporated pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporation Act (Alberta) on October 30, 2008 in conjunction with the reorganization of Loon Energy Inc. ( Loon ). The consolidated financial statements of Loon Energy Corporation are based on the Plan of Arrangement ( Arrangement ) prepared by Loon and approved by its security holders on December 9, 2008 and by the Court of Queen s Bench of Alberta on December 10, The Arrangement was implemented on December 10, 2008, and resulted in the division of all of the net assets and operations of Loon into Loon Energy Corporation (the Company, or if referring to periods prior to December 10, 2008, the operations conducted by Loon which are now held by Loon Energy Corporation) and Kulczyk Oil Ventures Inc. ( Kulczyk Oil ). The Company s consolidated financial statements are presented in United States dollars and are in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in Canada. Under the terms of the Arrangement, Loon shareholders received one share of the Company for each share of Loon owned and therefore retained their same proportionate interest in the Company as they had in Loon. The Company received the net assets associated with the resource properties located in Colombia and Peru, where operations commenced in 2005 and 2007 respectively. The Arrangement stated that the Company would receive at a minimum, $3.0 million of cash ($3,150,000 received upon closing the Arrangement). Upon implementation of the Arrangement, Loon s name was changed to Kulczyk Oil Ventures Inc. 2. Future operations The Company s exploration activities and overhead costs are financed by way of equity issuances and by farm-out agreements through which third parties pay for all or a portion of the Company s expenditures to earn a portion of the Company s ownership interest. It is anticipated that cash resources at December 31, 2009 together with the funding to be provided by the Company s joint operations partner in Peru should be sufficient to fund existing capital commitments for the next twelve months. Additional capital or further commitments from farm-in partners will be required to fully complete the exploration and development programs as presently contemplated under the Company s current agreements. Should capital or farm-in partners not be available in the future when planned expenditures on oil and gas properties are required, operations may have to be suspended or reevaluated. The uncertainty in the global capital markets could have a negative impact on the Company s ability to access capital in the future. 3. International operations and commitments Colombia Abanico Association Contract The Company owns a 49% non-operated working interest in the area covered by the Abanico Association Contract. The Company fulfilled its required work commitments with respect thereto in Buganviles Association Contract Through a farm-in agreement, the Company earned a 20% non-operated participating interest in a 60,817 hectare block of lands covered by the Buganviles Association Contract between Holywell Resources S.A. and Empresa Colombiana de Petróleos ( Ecopetrol ), the Colombian national oil company. The Company earned its interest by paying $1.0 million of the estimated $3.4 million dry-hole cost of the Delta-1 well plus 20% of costs incurred thereafter. The Delta-1well came on production late in September Ecopetrol approved the operator s Commerciality Application in March 2009 the consequence of which is that fifty percent of the lands, or approximately 75,000 acres, will be retained for a period of two years. During the year ended December 31, 2009 the Delta-1 well produced sporadically and in January, 2010 was shut in. The Company has fulfilled its required work commitments with respect to this concession. 3. International operations and commitments (continued) Peru Loon Energy Corporation On August 21, 2007, the Company announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Loon Peru Limited ( Loon Peru ), signed an exploration license contract with PERUPETRO S.A. granting Loon Peru the right to explore for and produce hydrocarbons from Block 127 in the Marañon Basin area of northeast Peru. Under the terms of the agreement, Loon Peru committed to a Phase 1 minimum work program to acquire, process and interpret 390 kilometres of 2D seismic and reprocess another 2,000 kilometres of 2D seismic during the first two-year exploration period, which expires on May 16, The gross costs of the phase 1 commitments were initially estimated at $15 million. Much of the Company s existing commitments for the first two exploration periods are to be funded by CEPSA Peru S.A. ( CEPSA Peru ) under the terms of a farmout agreement dated October 29, 2007, which was approved by the Government of Peru during the second quarter of Under the terms of the farmout agreement, CEPSA Peru earned 80% of Loon Peru s interest in the block in return for consideration consisting of a payment of $700,000 to Loon Peru for past costs, replacement of a $2.25 million performance guarantee that was previously funded by the Company, and payment of the first $10.75 million of expenditures incurred in fulfilling the minimum work commitment for the first exploration period. In the event that CEPSA Peru agrees to proceed to the second exploration period of 18 months, they will fund 100% of the first $15.0 million of expenditures incurred in fulfilling the group s work commitments which includes the drilling of one exploratory well. CEPSA Peru is the operator of Block 127. Subsequent to December 31, 2009, the Phase 1 work commitments were satisfied. The Company s share of total expenditures related to the first exploration period, including the seismic acquisition, are $705,691. CEPSA provided notice to PERUPETRO S.A. in April 2010 of its intent to proceed to the second exploration period subject however to the identification of viable drilling targets after evaluation of the seismic information obtained during the first exploration period. A decision on the drilling of an exploration well on the block is scheduled for the second quarter of The Company has a commitment to a third party geophysical company relating to its Peru concession which requires the Company to pay $250,000 to the geophysical company when commerciality within Block 127 is first declared, a further $500,000 when third party proven reserves are assessed at 50 million barrels of oil equivalent and an additional $250,000 when 75 million barrels of oil equivalent are assessed as proven reserves. 4. Significant accounting policies (a) Continuity of interest financial statements The consolidated financial information presented herein has been extracted from the books and records of Loon until December 10, 2008, the date the Arrangement was implemented. Certain financial statement items were maintained at a corporate rather than on a property-by-property basis by Loon and accordingly, it was necessary to make allocations of amounts reported in the consolidated financial statements of Loon in order to prepare these consolidated financial statements for the Company. The allocations that were made include: Share capital and related share issuance expenses were allocated based on the expenditure requirements of Kulczyk Oil and the Company. General and administrative expense, stock based compensation, unrealized loss/(gain) on foreign exchange and realized loss/(gain) on foreign exchange were allocated based on the ratio of capital expenditures in the respective entity to the total capital expenditures of Loon. Future income taxes were estimated on the basis that each entity was a separate legal entity. 4. Significant accounting policies (continued) Loon Energy Corporation (b) Change in reporting currency and foreign currency translation Effective December 10, 2008, the Company changed its reporting currency from Canadian dollars (CAD $) to United States dollars (US$ or $) as the Company anticipates that the majority of its future income streams and the basis of evaluation of new projects will be denominated in US$. The Company has restated prior period s comparative information. Effective December 10, 2008 the Company re-classified the subsidiaries and the parent Company from integrated to selfsustaining operations. This re-classification was made as it is anticipated that all future income streams and the majority of expenditures will be denominated in US$. Accordingly, all entities now use the US$ as their functional currency. The Company has prospectively adopted the current rate method of foreign currency translation. Under this method revenues and expenses are translated using the average exchange rates for the applicable period, assets and liabilities are translated using the exchange rates in effect on the balance sheet dates, and shareholder s equity is translated using historical rates in effect at the date of each transaction. Resulting exchange differences are reported as a separate component of other comprehensive income. For the year ended December 31, 2008, the Company recorded a loss of $474,645 in accumulated other comprehensive loss with this amount arising from the prospective adoption of the current rate method for foreign currency translation. (c) Basis of presentation The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly-owned subsidiaries. (d) Property and equipment The Company follows the full-cost method of accounting for its resource activities, and accordingly all costs related to the exploration for and development of petroleum and natural gas reserves are accumulated in one cost centre for each country. Capitalized costs include: land, lease acquisition and concession costs, geological and geophysical expenditures, the carrying costs associated with undeveloped and non-producing properties, drilling and completion costs of productive and non-productive properties, and related production, gathering and plant equipment costs. A portion of overhead charges directly related to acquisition, exploration and development activities are capitalized. Proceeds received from the disposition of properties are normally credited to the cost centre without recognition of a gain or loss unless such treatment would result in a change of 20% or more to the depletion rate. The Company performs a cost recovery test for each cost centre at least annually to evaluate and if appropriate, recognize impairment when the carrying value of property and equipment exceeds the undiscounted future cash flows from proven reserves using estimated future commodity prices. The amount of any impairment to be recognized is determined as the excess of the carrying value over fair value. Fair value is determined using proven and probable reserves together with undeveloped land, and is based on the present value of expected future cash flows discounted at a risk-free rate of interest. The Company also completes an analysis of the carrying value of undeveloped properties at least annually to ensure there are no indicators of impairment. These indicators would include, but are not limited to, results of seismic reprocessing and acquisition, licence expirations and if management determines a project or property is no longer economically feasible. (e) Depletion and depreciation Depletion and depreciation of petroleum and natural gas properties and equipment is provided using the unit-of-production method and proved reserves. Expenditures on undeveloped properties are excluded from the depletion provision until related reserves are proven or impairment is recognized. Volumes are converted to equivalent units on the basis that one barrel of oil is equivalent to six thousand cubic feet of natural gas. (f) Cash and cash equivalents Cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand and short-term, highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less. 4. Significant accounting policies (continued) (g) Asset retirement obligations Loon Energy Corporation The Company recognizes the fair value of its asset retirement obligation as a liability at the time it incurs an obligation for the future abandonment and reclamation costs resulting from its resource operations. The asset retirement obligation is initially measured at its estimated fair value, which is the discounted future value of the liability, with the liability then accreting each subsequent period until the obligation is settled. The estimated fair value of the asset retirement obligation is capitalized to the petroleum and natural gas properties and equipment accounts, and is depleted over the estimated useful life of these assets. (h) Joint operations The Company conducts all of its exploration, development and production activities with partners, and accordingly these consolidated financial statements reflect only the Company s proportionate interest in such activities. (i) Financial instruments All financial instruments are required to be measured at fair value on initial recognition of the instrument, except for certain related party transactions.
