LUCAS ENERGY, INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
 (Unaudited)
 
NOTE 1 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION
 
The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements of Lucas Energy, Inc. ("Lucas") have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States and the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission, and should be read in conjunction with the audited financial statements and notes thereto contained in Lucas' annual report filed with the SEC on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2010.  In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for a fair presentation of financial position and the results of operations for the interim periods presented have been reflected herein.  The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year.  Notes to the financial statements which would substantially duplicate the disclosures contained in the audited financial statements for the most recent fiscal year 2010 as reported in Form 10-K have been omitted.
 
NOTE 2 – ORGANIZATION AND HISTORY

The Company was incorporated on December 16, 2003 in the State of Nevada as Panorama Investments, Corp. (“Panorama”). On June 16, 2006, the Company consummated a share exchange with Lucas Energy Resources, Inc. (“Lucas Resources”), a privately held oil and gas company, which held oil and gas lease acreage and producing reserves in Texas.  The share exchange was made pursuant to a May 19, 2006 Acquisition and Exchange Agreement whereby the shareholders of Lucas Resources assumed control of and responsibilities for the Company’s activities.  In conjunction with the share exchange, the name of Panorama was changed to Lucas Energy, Inc. (“Lucas”).

NOTE 3 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

Lucas' consolidated financial statements are based on a number of significant estimates, including oil and gas reserve quantities which are the basis for the calculation of depreciation, depletion and impairment of oil and gas properties, as well as the cost and timing of its asset retirement obligations.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents include cash in banks and financial instruments which mature within three months of the date of purchase.

Concentration of Credit Risk

Financial instruments that potentially subject Lucas to concentration of credit risk consist of cash and accounts receivable.  Cash balances exceeded FDIC insurance protection levels by approximately $5,657,000 at December 31, 2010, and at certain points throughout the year, subjecting Lucas to risk related to the uninsured balance. Lucas’ deposits are held at large established bank institutions and it believes that the risk of loss associated with these uninsured balances is remote.

Accounts receivable are recorded at invoiced amount and generally do not bear interest. Any allowance for doubtful accounts is based on management's estimate of the amount of probable losses due to the inability to collect from customers and working interest owners. As of December 31, 2010, no allowance for doubtful accounts has been recorded.
 
-7-

 
Sales to one customer comprised 93% of Lucas’ total revenues for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2010.  Lucas believes that, in the event that its primary customer was unable or unwilling to continue to purchase Lucas’ production, there are a substantial number of alternative buyers for its production at comparable prices.

Marketable Securities

Lucas reports its short-term investments and other marketable securities at fair value in accordance with ASC 825 “Financial Instruments”.  

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

As of December 31, 2010, the fair value of cash, accounts receivable and accounts payable approximate carrying values because of the short-term maturity of these instruments.

Oil and Gas Properties, Full Cost Method

Lucas uses the full cost method of accounting for oil and gas producing activities. Costs to acquire mineral interests in oil and gas properties, to drill and equip exploratory wells used to find proved reserves, and to drill and equip development wells including directly related overhead costs and related asset retirement costs are capitalized.

Under this method, all costs, including internal costs directly related to acquisition, exploration and development activities are capitalized as oil and gas property costs on a country-by-country basis. Sales of oil and gas properties or interests therein are credited against capitalized costs in the full cost pool. Properties not subject to amortization consist of exploration and development costs, which are evaluated on a property-by-property basis. Amortization of these unproved property costs begins when the properties become proved or their values become impaired. Lucas assesses overall values of unproved properties, if any, on at least an annual basis or when there has been an indication that impairment in value may have occurred.  Impairment of unproved properties is assessed based on management's intention with regard to future development of individually significant properties and the ability of Lucas to obtain funds to finance their programs. If the results of an assessment indicate that the properties are impaired, the amount of the impairment is added to the capitalized costs to be amortized.

Costs of oil and gas properties are amortized using the units of production method.  

Ceiling Test

In applying the full cost method, Lucas performs an impairment test (ceiling test) at each reporting date, whereby the carrying value of property and equipment is compared to the “estimated present value,” of its proved reserves discounted at a 10-percent interest rate of future net revenues, based on current economic and operating conditions at the end of the period, plus the cost of properties not being amortized, plus the lower of cost or fair market value of unproved properties included in costs being amortized, less the income tax effects related to book and tax basis differences of the properties. If capitalized costs exceed this limit, the excess is charged as an impairment expense.  During the nine months ended December 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively, no impairment of oil and gas properties was recorded.

Property, Plant and Equipment

Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost and consist primarily of furniture and office equipment.  Depreciation is computed on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful lives of three to five years.

Income Taxes

Deferred taxes are provided on the liability method whereby deferred tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences and operating loss and tax credit carry-forwards and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences. Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. Deferred tax assets and accrued tax liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

 
-8-

 
Lucas has evaluated and concluded that there are no significant uncertain tax positions requiring recognition in the Company’s financial statements as of December 31, 2010.  The Company’s policy is to classify assessments, if any, for tax related interest and penalties as interest expense.

Earnings per Share of Common Stock

Basic and diluted net income per share calculations are calculated on the basis of the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the year.  Purchases of treasury stock reduce the outstanding shares commencing on the date that the stock is purchased.  Common stock equivalents are excluded from the calculation when a loss is incurred as their effect would be anti-dilutive.  On December 31, 2010 all options and warrants were anti-dilutive and are therefore excluded from the calculation of the basic and diluted net income (loss) earnings per share.

Revenue and Cost Recognition

Lucas recognizes oil and natural gas revenue under the sales method of accounting for its interests in producing wells as oil and natural gas is produced and sold from those wells. Oil and natural gas sold by Lucas is not significantly different from Lucas’ share of production.  Costs associated with production are expensed in the period incurred.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

There were various accounting standards and interpretations issued recently, none of which are expected to a have a material impact on our consolidated financial position, operations or cash flows.

Subsequent Events

Lucas evaluated all transactions from December 31, 2010 through the financial statement issuance date for subsequent event disclosure.

NOTE 4 - MARKETABLE SECURITIES AND NOTES RECEIVABLE

At December 31, 2010, Lucas held 3,300,000 shares of Bonanza common stock recorded at zero value.  During the nine months ended December 31, 2010, pursuant to mark-to-market accounting, Lucas reported a non-cash unrealized loss on Bonanza common shares of $21,450.

During the nine months ended December 31, 2010, Lucas advanced $30,000 to a working interest partner under a secured promissory note. The note is due on demand, it carries an 8% per annum interest rate, and is secured by a lien upon the holder’s revenue and royalty interest in their oil and gas wells, including but not limited to the Arco Fee A-418 Unit  No. 1-H, located in Sabine County, Texas.   During the same period, Lucas also advanced $20,000 to Savoy Energy Corporation, which was settled subsequent to December 31, 2010.

NOTE 5 – OIL AND GAS PROPERTIES

Hilcorp Energy I, L.P. Purchase and Sale Agreement dated April 1, 2010

On April 1, 2010, Lucas entered into a purchase and sale agreement with HilCorp Energy I, L.P. (“HilCorp”) for the development of Lucas’ Eagle Ford Shale properties located in Gonzales County, Texas.  The agreement provides for HilCorp to acquire an undivided eighty-five (85%) working interest in the “deep rights” held by Lucas in Gonzales County, Texas.  On May 5, 2010, Lucas and HilCorp held the first closing with total gross proceeds to Lucas of $7,520,560.  The second and third closings occurred on June 28, 2010 and August 31, 2010, respectively, with total gross proceeds to Lucas of $1,381,270 and $1,307,990, respectively, for total gross proceeds to date of $10,209,820.  Net proceeds to Lucas for all three closings were $8,921,615, after distribution to Lucas’ working interest participants and expenses.

A portion of the proceeds from the May 5, 2010 closing was used to terminate and fully repay the Amegy Bank Credit Facility. After repayment, Amegy released all of its liens and security interests in Lucas’ oil and gas properties.

The proceeds from HilCorp were recorded as a reduction to Lucas’ full cost pool with no recognition of gain or loss on the transaction.  Lucas has analyzed the tax effects of the “deep rights” sale, and concluded that no taxable income or tax liability will occur.  In the event that a tax liability would arise, Lucas expects that it will be fully offset by its net operating tax loss carry-forwards.

Acquisition of Oil and Gas Properties

During the nine months ended December 31, 2010, Lucas’ capital expenditures are as follows:
 
Acquisition costs
(1 )   $ 4,964,053  
Drilling and completion costs
        3,923,669  
Capital expenditures
      $ 8,887,722

Total acquisition cost for lease acreage, wellbores, and associated equipment purchased.

LEI 2009-II Capital Program

Lucas began the LEI 2009-II capital program in July 2009.  At that time there were two working interest participants in the program.  One participant held an eighty percent (80%) working interest (before payout) in the six well program and bore eighty percent (80%) of the capital costs expended in the program.  In connection with the farm-in to the capital program, the working interest participant paid Lucas $872,100. The amount paid by the participant to Lucas for its interest in the six wells was reflected by Lucas as a reduction to the full cost pool with no gain or loss reported on the sale. A second participant held a ten percent (10%) net profits interest.  Lucas retained a ten percent (10%) working interest in the program prior to payout, and held an additional ten percent (10%) “back in” after payout to the 80% working interest participant (or a total 20% working interest, after payout).  Lucas is the operator of all wells in the program, and five wells are located in Gonzales County, Texas while the sixth well is located in Wilson County, Texas. Commercial sales of crude oil production have occurred from six wells in the program.

LEI 2009-III Capital Program

The LEI 2009-III capital program is comprised of seven wells located in Gonzales, Wilson and Karnes counties, Texas.  The principal working interest participant in the LEI 2009-II capital program was the same participant in the LEI 2009-III program, and is responsible for paying eighty percent (80%) of the capital costs to earn a seventy percent (70%) working interest in the wells.  In connection with the program wells, they paid Lucas approximately $1,170,982 for their interests. The amount paid to Lucas for the interests acquired was reflected as a reduction to the full cost pool with no gain or loss recorded on the sale. Commercial sales of crude oil production have occurred from six wells in the program through December 31, 2010. Funds received by Lucas pursuant to cash calls to the working interest participant in excess of funds expended in the capital program are reflected in Lucas’ financial statement as a current liability – “Advances from working interest owners”.

Purchase of Working Interest

On September 7, 2010, Lucas purchased a 10% working interest in oil and gas properties from a private individual for $200,000 payable in Lucas common stock.   At December 31, 2010, Lucas had issued 131,579 shares of common stock valued at $1.52 per share, the closing price on the date of the transaction. Also, effective with the date of the agreement, Lucas agreed to pay 10% of the net profits from any wells in the LEI 2009-II and LEI 2009-III JV programs for as long as the partners hold working interests in any of the wells in the programs.  As of December 31, 2010, Lucas has accrued $44,915 for the net profits interest under this agreement.

Acquisition of Oil and Gas Properties from El Tex Petroleum

During the nine months ended December 31, 2009, Lucas acquired approximately 2,771 gross acres (2,078 net) located in Wilson County, Texas from El Tex Petroleum, LLC (“El Tex”).  The leases have eight shut-in or plugged wellbores that the Company believes are good candidates for recompletion and work overs.  The leasehold, wellbore and surface equipment acquisition cost totaled approximately $1 million comprised of $490,000 of Lucas common stock valued at $0.77 per share, the assumption of $500,000 in debt plus accrued interest; and the payment of $68,000 in cash.

Since two of Lucas directors owned 25.2% and 18.8% interests in El Tex, respectively, and one of them was the holder of the note assumed, Lucas was required to seek shareholder approval under NYSE Amex rules. Both the shareholders and Amex approvals were duly received. On May 25, 2010, Lucas issued 637,887 shares of common stock to El Tex and 683,686 shares of common stock for the note conversion. The stock was issued at $0.77 per share, which was the fair value of the shares at the effective date in September 2009.  Wells acquired by Lucas from El Tex are included in the LEI 2009-II and LEI 2009-III capital programs.

Other Acquisitions and Sales of Oil and Gas

During the nine month months ended December 31, 2010, Lucas acquired interests in oil and gas properties for a purchase price of $1,738,075.  Lucas paid $900,000 of the purchase price in cash and deferred payment of $838,075 until January 6, 2011, at which time it was fully paid.

During the nine months ended December 31, 2010, Lucas sold interests in oil and gas properties to a third party.  The proceeds of the sale were $1,999,992 and were recorded as a reduction of oil and gas properties.

During the nine months ended December 31, 2010, Lucas paid a deposit of $500,000 toward the acquisition of oil and gas properties under a letter of intent to acquire up to $20,500,000 in oil and gas properties.  Subsequent to December 31, 2010, Lucas executed a letter agreement to acquire certain interests in oil and gas properties.  See subsequent events.

NOTE 6 - REVOLVING LINE OF CREDIT AND LETTER OF CREDIT FACILITY

On October 8, 2008, Lucas entered into a three-year Revolving Line of Credit and Letter of Credit Facility with Amegy Bank (the “Credit Facility”). At the closing of the Credit Facility in October 2008, Lucas had a lending commitment and borrowing capacity of $3 million.

On May 5, 2010, Lucas terminated the Credit Facility and paid off the outstanding balance.  As a result, Amegy released all liens and security interests securing Lucas’ obligations under the Credit Facility and Lucas recorded the remaining unamortized deferred financing costs totaling $250,921 as interest expense.

NOTE 7 – EQUITY

On March 26, 2010, Lucas entered into a Placement Agent Agreement with WR Hambrecht, under which Lucas may issue and sell up to 4 million shares of common stock from time to time in an at-the-market (“ATM”) public equity offering program.  Under the ATM offering, Lucas sold a total of 778,170 newly issued shares during the period April 12, 2010 through May 6, 2010 with gross proceeds of $1,381,103 (net proceeds of $1,224,900). The ATM program was terminated September 28, 2010.

During the nine months ended December 31, 2010, warrant holders exercised warrants to purchase 45,000 shares of common stock at $1.00 per share.  The warrants were originally issued to the warrant holders in connection with the purchase of units in a private equity placement in September 2009.

During the nine months ended December 31, 2010, Lucas issued 11,000 shares of common stock valued at $21,290 to its former CFO as part of his compensation arrangement with the Company and 39,502 shares of common stock valued at $38,757 to a consultant in connection with the acquisition of oil and gas properties.  In addition, the Company issued 5,000 shares of common stock to two employees as compensation for their services. The shares were issued at the grant date fair value which totaled $8,350, or $1.67 per common share. The Company also issued 51,470 shares of common stock to two individuals in connection with the acquisition of oil and gas properties. The shares were issued at the grant date fair value which totaled $78,750, or $1.52 per common share.

The fair value of the warrants was determined using the Black-Scholes option pricing model. The 150,630 placement agent warrants had a fair value of $126,062.  The Series B, Series C and placement agent warrants were valued using the Black Scholes model with the following weighted average assumptions used for grants; dividend yield of 0.00%; expected volatilities from 101% to 113%; risk-free interest rates from 0.20% to 1.14% and expected terms ranging from 0.3 to 2.0 years.

OVERVIEW
 
Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements
 
This Quarterly Report includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  These forward-looking  statements  may  relate  to such matters as  anticipated  financial  performance,  future  revenues or  earnings, business prospects,  projected ventures, new products and services,  anticipated market  performance  and similar  matters.  We identify forward-looking statements by use of terms such as “may,” “will,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “estimate,” “hope,” “plan,” “believe,” “predict,” “envision,” “intend,” “will,” “continue,” “potential,” “should,” “confident,” “could” and similar words and expressions, although some forward-looking statements may be expressed differently. You should be aware that our actual results could differ materially from those contained in the forward-looking statements.

These risks and uncertainties, many of which are beyond our control, include:

*  general economic conditions.

Although we believe the expectations reflected in these forward-looking statements are reasonable, such expectations cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements.
 
All forward-looking statements included in this report and all subsequent written or oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or persons acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by these cautionary statements.  The forward-looking statements speak only as of the date made, other than as required by law, and we undertake no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

NATURE OF OPERATIONS

General

Lucas Energy, Inc., is an independent oil and gas company based in Houston, Texas with approximately 19,200 gross acres (14,200 net) of oil and gas leases in South Texas primarily in Gonzales County and Wilson County, Texas.  We hold oil and gas interests in the Austin Chalk formation (proved and producing), Buda formation (proved and producing), and Eagle Ford Shale formation (proved undeveloped).  We focus on building, revitalizing and developing a portfolio of oil and gas properties by acquiring what we believe are undervalued and underperforming oil and gas assets for which we believe we can increase production.

We operate more than 50 producing wells that produced an average of 193 gross and 106 net barrels of oil per day (“BOPD”) during the nine months ended December 31, 2010. In total, we hold interests in more than 80 producing, shut-in, and previously plugged and abandoned wellbores.   We operate all of our oil and gas properties with the exception of one property located in Sabine County, Texas.
 
-14-

 
Acquisitions of oil and gas properties are a core part of our growth strategy.  We focus on acquiring shut-in wells that we believe have been overlooked by other companies and have, in our assessment, a high probability of additional recovery of reserves through our recompletion and work over process or through the drilling of new laterals.  Specifically, we seek out opportunities to acquire wells located in mature oil fields that we believe are underdeveloped and have the potential to recover significant oil reserves that are still in place. The term underdeveloped is an industry term meaning that the reservoirs of interest have either not been fully exploited through drilling, or the reserves in current well bores, whether active or plugged and abandoned, have not been fully recovered by primary recovery techniques.  In many instances the fields that we target have lost some or all of the reservoir pressure required to drive the oil through the overlying rock and sand and into the well bores of the producing wells, or they have experienced mechanical problems.

Most of the acquisition prospects that we conduct initial screening on are sourced directly by our senior management or specialized third-party consultants with local area knowledge.   Prospects that are of further interest to us after we complete our initial review, are evaluated for technical and economic viability.  We target well acquisitions that we estimate: (a) have a good opportunity and the appropriate acreage to drill additional laterals; (b) payback period of less than 12 months; and (c) projected internal rate of return on capital invested is accretive to earnings.

Our recompletion and work over process seeks to bring wells back into production or enhancing production through proven practices used in the oil and gas industry.  Our procedures used on acquired wells include the installation of better equipment on the well; cleaning out the well with open ended tubing, tubing with a bit, or tubing with a mule shoe; treating the well with acid, soapy water, or other proprietary chemicals sourced from third parties; re-entry of a plugged and abandoned well; and drilling of a new lateral extension on an existing well.  The program enables us to generate short-term cash and to hold leases for additional future development.  Additionally we have conducted reservoir engineering studies on a program to drill new laterals from existing well-bores or offset locations that we have already leased.  The purpose of these laterals is to provide increased areal access to the formation in order to increase the flow rate and to recover additional oil and gas reserves not recoverable from the existing vertical wells.
 
Our primary focus is to grow the portfolio and profitability of oil and gas properties. Our primary revenues are derived from the sale of the oil that we produce from our wells.  We derive ancillary revenue from associated natural gas produced in connection with production from our oil wells.  Our assets deplete as our reserves are produced. Our business is capital intensive requiring substantial funding to make property acquisitions, drill and complete wells, and conduct well revitalizations in order for us to maintain and increase our reserve base.  Our primary recurring costs are expenses associated with lease operations and with operating the Company.

Oil and Gas Revenue
 
The $209,000 increase in our oil and gas revenues for the current quarter was primarily attributable to an increase of 1,714 barrels (27%) in barrels of oil sold and an increase of $10.17 per barrel (14%) in the oil price realized compared to the prior year quarter. The increase in oil volumes is due to production from seven newly acquired wells along with production from eight successfully completed wells during the current fiscal year.

Lease Operating Expenses

Lease operating expenses increased $65,000 for the current quarter as compared to the prior year period principally due to higher work-over and treatment costs along with higher fuel and water hauling costs resulting from increased production from newly acquired and successfully completed wells.

Depreciation, Depletion, Amortization and Accretion (“DD&A”)
 
DD&A increased $118,000 primarily due to an increase in production for the current quarter ended December 31, 2010 totaling 1,714 barrels of oil equivalent in excess of the prior year period.  The rate per BOE increased from $20.63 to $26.12.

General and Administrative Expenses
 
General and administrative expenses increased $757,000 for the current quarter as compared to the prior year’s quarter.  The increase is primarily due to an increase in non-cash board compensation ($282,000), one time compensation settlements for ex-employees ($249,000), creation of the land and field administration departments, which began operating in 2010 ($90,000), as well as increases in activity in other administrative costs ($136,000).

Unrealized and Realized Losses

The unrealized loss on marketable securities for the quarter ended December 31, 2009 totaling $103,000 is due to the mark-to-market adjustment to 3.3 million shares of common stock held by the Company in Bonanza Oil and Gas, Inc (“BGOI”) , which have been written down to zero value. No loss was recognized in the current quarter.

Interest Expense

On May 5, 2010, we repaid the outstanding balance and terminated the Amegy Credit Facility.  Accordingly, no interest expense was incurred in the current quarter.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was zero for the current quarter and for the prior year’s quarter.  The tax benefits from operating losses for the current period and the prior year period have been fully reserved in our valuation allowance due to uncertainty whether some portion or all of the deferred tax asset arising from the operating losses may or may not be realized in the future. The Company determined that an adjustment to the valuation allowance resulting from the anticipated utilization of net operating tax loss carry-forwards for the sale of the oil and gas property “deep rights” to HilCorp is not significant.

Net Loss

The $595,000 increase in the net loss between the current quarter and the prior year’s period is attributable to an increase in general and administrative expenses, lease operating, and severance and property taxes; partially offset by the increase in revenues between the periods due to higher oil sales volumes and higher oil prices realized as well as the absence of losses on marketable securities and interest expense.

Oil and Gas Revenue
 
The $869,000 increase in our oil and gas revenues during the nine months ended December 31, 2010, was primarily attributable to an increase of 7,461 barrels (34%) of oil sold and an increase of $12.34 per barrel (19%) in the oil price realized compared to the prior year period. The increase in oil volumes is due to production from seven newly acquired wells along with production from eight successfully completed wells during the current fiscal year.

Lease Operating Expenses

Lease operating expenses increased $242,000 during the nine months ended December 31, 2010 as compared to the prior year period principally due to increased production resulting from work-over and treatment costs along with higher fuel and water hauling costs resulting from newly acquired and successfully completed wells.  Other factors include higher maintenance costs.

Depreciation, Depletion, Amortization and Accretion (“DD&A”)
 
DD&A increased $357,000 primarily due to an increase in production for the nine month period ended December 31, 2010 totaling 7,461 barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) in excess of the prior year period.  The rate per BOE increased from $20.63 to $26.12.

General and Administrative Expenses
 
General and administrative expenses increased $1,482,000 for the nine month period ended December 31, 2010 as compared to the prior year period primarily due to one-time compensation settlements for ex-employees ($344,000), an increase in non-cash board compensation ($287,000), increases in stock awareness activities ($286,000), increase in the size and scope of the land, accounting, and field administration departments ($266,000), purchase of an integrated software system ($59,000), as well as increases in activity in other administrative costs ($240,000).

Unrealized and Realized Losses

The reduction in unrealized loss on investments for the nine months ended December 31, 2010 totaling $103,000 is due to the absence of mark- to-market adjustment to 3.3 million shares of common stock held by the Company in Bonanza Oil and Gas, Inc (“BGOI”), which have been written down to zero value.

Interest Expense

On May 5, 2010, we repaid the outstanding balance and terminated the Amegy Credit Facility.  Interest expense increased by $36,000 during the current year period as compared to the prior year period primarily due to our expensing of the remaining unamortized balance of deferred financing costs originally incurred in creating the Credit Facility.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was zero for the current period and for the same nine month period of the prior year.  The tax benefits from operating losses for the current period and the prior year period have been fully reserved in our valuation allowance due to uncertainty whether some portion of or all of the deferred tax asset arising from the operating losses may or may not be realized in the future. The Company determined that an adjustment to the valuation allowance resulting from the anticipated utilization of net operating tax loss carry-forwards for the sale of the oil and gas property “deep rights” to HilCorp is not significant.

Net Loss

The $1,199,000 increase in the net loss between the current year period and the prior year period is attributable to an increase in general and administrative expenses; an increase in depletion expenses and lease operating costs including taxes; partially offset by the increase in revenues between the periods due to higher oil sales volumes and higher oil prices realized as well as a reduction of losses on marketable securities and interest expense.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
 
Between the end of our prior fiscal year and December 31, 2010, we had an increase in cash of $4.1 million with total cash of $5.9 million at December 31, 2010. Our working capital surplus at December 31, 2010 totaled $3.2 million as compared to a deficit of $4.1 million at March 31, 2010.  On December 30, 2010, we closed on a financing, which grossed almost $6 million in cash and netted $5.5 million after expenses through the sale of 2.5 million units to institutional investors consisting of shares of common stock and warrants to purchase shares of common stock.
 
-19-

 
During the nine months ended December 31, 2010, we also raised $1.2 million, net to Lucas through an “at-the-market” (“ATM”) public equity offering in which we sold 778,170 newly issued shares of common stock from our effective S-3 shelf registration statement; $9 million net to us under the “deep rights” sale of oil and gas properties in Gonzales County to HilCorp;  and $0.4 million through our working interest partner’s “buy-in” to the LEI 2009-III capital program.  During the nine month period we expended $8.9 million for the purchase of oil and gas properties and capital expenditures on existing oil and gas properties; $2.2 million to repay the outstanding principal balance on the Amegy Credit Facility; and $0.3 million to fund our operating, administrative and business development activities.

 We anticipate that cash flows from operating activities; cash on hand at December 31, 2010; future equity placements under our S-3 shelf registration through an ATM public offering(s) or registered direct placement(s); and/or other debt or equity placements will be sufficient to fund our operating and administrative requirements for the 2011 calendar year. Additionally, we expect to fund our 2011 oil and gas capital expenditure requirements of $6 million through a combination of cash on hand, sales of additional properties; joint venture arrangements, working interest participants’ buy-in to existing wells and programs, and other sources of capital such as private equity and debt placements, public offerings, and traditional reserve-based financing and credit facilities.
 
We currently have no definitive agreements or arrangements for additional funding, other than rights we may have under the Series B Warrants (described under Note 7 to the financial statements), subject to certain conditions being met for such exercises, and our other outstanding warrants.  Future financings could result in significant dilution to our shareholders or not be available on acceptable terms in the time frame necessary, or may not be available or acceptable to us at all.
 
Cash flow from operating activities
 
For the nine months ended December 31, 2010, net cash used in operating activities was $792,000 compared to $146,000 for the prior year period.  The $646,000 increase is primarily due to the increase in loss for the current period associated with increased general and administrative expenses offset by increased cash flows from field operations.

Cash flow from investing activities
 
For the nine months ended December 31, 2010, net cash provided by investing activities was $2.5 million compared to the prior year period of $11,000.  Cash from investing activities increased during the current year period primarily as a result of our sale of an undivided 85% interest in our “deep rights” located in Gonzales County, Texas less the cash paid for the purchase of oil and gas properties and capital expended on existing oil and gas properties.

Cash flow from financing activities
 
For the nine months ended December 31, 2010, an increase in net cash flow sources from financing activities of $2.4 million was generated compared to the prior year period of $204,000. The increase was primarily comprised of equity offerings of $6.9 million; partially offset by repayment of the outstanding principal on the Amegy Credit Facility of $2.2 million, and a reduction in advances from working interest owners of $2.3 million.

Hedging
 
We did not hedge any of our oil or natural gas production during the current year or prior year periods.
 
Contractual Commitments

None.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements
 
None.
 
Critical Accounting Policies
 
Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based on our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities and expenses. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

ITEM 3.   QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK.
 
Market risk is the risk of loss arising from adverse changes in market rates and prices. We are exposed to risks related to increases in the prices of fuel and raw materials consumed in exploration, development and production. We do not engage in commodity price hedging activities.
 
ITEM 4.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.
 
Disclosure Controls and Procedures.

Disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules  13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”)) are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in reports filed or submitted under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in Securities and Exchange Commission rules and forms and that such information is accumulated and communicated to management, including the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosures.

Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

Management of the Company is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act.  Internal control over financial reporting is a process designed under the supervision of our principal executive and principal financial officers to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with GAAP.

Due to inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements and, even when determined to be effective, can only provide reasonable, not absolute, assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to risk that controls may become inadequate as a result of changes in conditions or deterioration in the degree of compliance.

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, we evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of the end of the period covered by this report.  Based on the evaluation, our management concluded that the design and operation of such disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting

There have not been any changes in our internal control over financial reporting that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II - OTHER INFORMATION
 
ITEM 1.  LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.
 
The Company is not aware of any significant litigation, pending or threatened, that would have a material adverse effect on our financial position or results of operations.

ITEM 1A.  RISK FACTORS.

In addition to the risk factors set forth in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended March 31, 2010, as filed with the SEC on July 14, 2010, you should carefully consider risk factors identified below.

The crude oil and natural gas reserves we will report in our SEC filings will be estimates and may prove to be inaccurate.

There are numerous uncertainties inherent in estimating crude oil and natural gas reserves and their estimated values. The reserves we will report in our filings with the SEC will only be estimates and such estimates may prove to be inaccurate because of these uncertainties. Reservoir engineering is a subjective and inexact process of estimating underground accumulations of crude oil and natural gas that cannot be measured in an exact manner. Estimates of economically recoverable crude oil and natural gas reserves depend upon a number of variable factors, such as historical production from the area compared with production from other producing areas and assumptions concerning effects of regulations by governmental agencies, future crude oil and natural gas prices, future operating costs, severance and excise taxes, development costs and work-over and remedial costs. Some or all of these assumptions may in fact vary considerably from actual results. For these reasons, estimates of the economically recoverable quantities of crude oil and natural gas attributable to any particular group of properties, classifications of such reserves based on risk of recovery, and estimates of the future net cash flows expected there from prepared by different engineers or by the same engineers but at different times may vary substantially. Accordingly, reserve estimates may be subject to downward or upward adjustment. Actual production, revenue and expenditures with respect to our reserves will likely vary from estimates, and such variances may be material.
 
-21-

 
Currently oil and natural gas companies are only permitted by the SEC to disclose proved reserves in their statutory SEC filings. Proved reserves are oil and natural gas reserves that a company has demonstrated by actual production or conclusive formation tests to be economically and legally producible under existing economic and operating conditions. Accordingly, the SEC has historically prohibited us from including “probable reserves” and “possible reserves” in statutory public filings. We may periodically disclose such reserves in information disseminations in documents that are not filed with the SEC. In addition to permitting us to disclose proved reserve estimates, effective January 1, 2010 the SEC will allow us to report “probable” and “possible” reserves realizing that both reserve categories are considered unproved reserves and as such, the SEC views the estimates to be inherently unreliable. Probable and possible reserve estimates may be misunderstood or seen as misleading to investors that are not “experts” in the oil or natural gas industry. Unless you have such expertise, you should not place undue reliance on these estimates. Except as required by applicable law, we undertake no duty to update this information and do not intend to update this information.

We face intense competition.

We are in direct competition with numerous oil and natural gas companies, drilling and income programs and partnerships exploring various areas of Texas and elsewhere competing for properties. Many competitors are large, well-known oil and gas and/or energy companies, although no single entity dominates the industry. Many of our competitors possess greater financial and personnel resources enabling them to identify and acquire more economically desirable energy producing properties and drilling prospects than us. Additionally, there is competition from other fuel choices to supply the energy needs of consumers and industry. Management believes that a viable market place exists for smaller producers of natural gas and oil.

We may not be able to operate profitably in the near future, if at all.

We will face all of the challenges of a smaller microcap oil and natural gas company that operates in a highly competitive industry, including but not limited to: locating, acquiring and successfully developing oil and gas properties; raising financing to fund our capital expenditure program; attracting, engaging and retaining the services of qualified management, technical and support personnel; establishing budgets and maintaining internal operating policies and procedures; and the design and implementation of effective financial and disclosure controls to meet public company statutory compliance requirements. We can provide no assurance that we will achieve a level of profitability that will provide a return on invested capital or that will result in an increase in the market value of our securities. Accordingly, we are subject to the risk that because of these factors and other general business risks noted throughout these “Risk Factors,” we may, in particular, not be able to profitably execute our plan of operation.

We require financing to execute our business plan and fund capital program requirements.

We believe that our current cash reserves, together with anticipated cash flow from operations, will be sufficient to meet our working capital and operating needs for approximately the 2011 calendar year. However, to continue growth and to fund our business and expansion plans we will require additional financing. The amount of capital available to us is limited, and may not be sufficient to enable us to fully execute our growth plans without additional fund raising. Additional financing may be required to meet our desired growth and strategic objectives and to provide more working capital for expanding our development and marketing capabilities and to achieve our ultimate plan of expansion and a larger scale of operations. There can be no assurance that we will be able to obtain such financing on attractive terms, if at all. We have no firm commitments for additional cash funding beyond the proceeds of the recently completed private placement.

Nevada law and our Articles of Incorporation authorize us to issue shares of stock, which shares may cause substantial dilution to our existing shareholders.
 
We have authorized capital stock consisting of 100,000,000 shares of common stock, $0.001 par value per share and 10,000,000 shares of preferred stock, $0.001 par value per share. As of the date of this filing, we have 16,609,074 shares of common stock outstanding and no shares of preferred stock issued and outstanding. As a result, our Board of Directors has the ability to issue a large number of additional shares of common stock without shareholder approval, subject to the requirements of the NYSE Amex Equities (which generally require shareholder approval for any transactions which would result in the issuance of more than 20% of our then outstanding shares of common stock or voting rights representing over 20% of our then outstanding shares of stock), which if issued could cause substantial dilution to our then shareholders.  Additionally, shares of preferred stock may be issued by our Board of Directors without shareholder approval with voting powers, and such preferences and relative, participating, optional or other special rights and powers as determined by our Board of Directors, which may be greater than the shares of common stock currently outstanding.  As a result, shares of preferred stock may be issued by our Board of Directors which cause the holders to have majority voting power over our shares, provide the holders of the preferred stock the right to convert the shares of preferred stock they hold into shares of our common stock, which may cause substantial dilution to our then common stock shareholders and/or have other rights and preferences greater than those of our common stock shareholders. Investors should keep in mind that the Board of Directors has the authority to issue additional shares of common stock and preferred stock, which could cause substantial dilution to our existing shareholders.  Additionally, the dilutive effect of any preferred stock, which we may issue may be exacerbated given the fact that such preferred stock may have super voting rights and/or other rights or preferences which could provide the preferred shareholders with substantial voting control over us subsequent to this filing and/or give those holders the power to prevent or cause a change in control.  As a result, the issuance of shares of common stock and/or preferred stock may cause the value of our securities to decrease and/or become worthless.

The outstanding Series C Warrants are only required to be exercised and the Company can only force the exercise of such warrants if certain conditions provided in such warrants are met.

Each Series C Warrant has an exercise price of $2.62 per share.  The Series C Warrants are exercisable for a 10 trading day period ending on the 216th day following the closing date of the sale of the units which included the Series C Warrants (December 30, 2010, the “Closing Date”), provided that the Company has the right to force the holders of the Series C Warrants to exercise the Series C Warrants if (a) the volume weighted average price (“VWAP”) of the Company's common stock on the NYSE Amex Equities exceeds $3.28 during the 11th through the 20th trading days immediately prior to the 216th day following the Closing Date; or (b) if on the 216th day following the Closing Date, the exercise price of $2.62 per share is less than the lower of (x) the VWAP for the ten days immediately preceding such date, and (y) the closing bid price on such date, subject in each case to the Company meeting certain requirements and maintaining certain conditions as set forth in such Series C Warrant.  The Class C Warrants expire automatically if not exercised by the 216th day following the Closing Date (unless such date falls on a holiday or weekend, in which case the next non-holiday or weekend date).  The Class C Warrants also include a provision whereby the holders thereof are not eligible to exercise any portion of the warrants that would result in them becoming a beneficial owner of more than 9.99% of the Company's common stock.  As such, the Company will not receive the $6,577,525 due to the Company in connection with the exercise of the Series C Warrants if the conditions set forth in the Series C Warrants are not met, which require among other things, the trading price of the Company’s common stock exceeding $3.28.  Additionally, the Series B Warrants have an exercise price of $2.86 per share.  In the event the trading price of the Company’s common stock does not exceed the exercise price of the Series B or Series C Warrants, such Warrants will not be exercisable, and the Company will not receive any funds in connection with such securities. Furthermore, even if the trading price of the Company’s common stock does exceed the exercise price of the Series B Warrants, the holders thereof have the sole option as to whether or not to exercise such warrants, and may choose to not exercise such warrants regardless of the trading price of the Company’s common stock.

Neither the Series B or Series C Warrants, nor the warrants granted to the Company’s placement agent, can be exercised unless there is a valid and effective registration statement covering the shares of common stock issuable upon exercise thereof on file with the SEC.  In the event our previously filed registration statement is deemed ineffective, we are unable to rely on such registration statement for the issuance of the shares of common stock issuable in connection with the exercise of the warrants or any other securities, or any other issues arise which prevent the holders thereof from validly exercising their rights under such warrants, we will not receive any additional funds in connection with such securities, even assuming the trading price of the Company’s common stock exceeds the exercise price of the common stock, and the holders thereof desire to exercise such warrants.

The investors in the Company’s December 2010 sale of 2,510,506 units obtained a right of first refusal to provide additional funding to the Company.

Pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”), pursuant to which certain investors purchased an aggregate of 2,510,506 units in December 2010, the Company agreed that until the first anniversary of the Closing Date (December 30, 2010), the Company would not undertake any of the following, without the prior written consent of all of the investors (the “Investors”): (A), directly or indirectly, file any registration statement with the SEC, (B) directly or indirectly, offer, sell, grant any option to purchase, or otherwise dispose of (or announce any offer, sale, grant or any option to purchase or other disposition of) any of its equity securities, including without limitation any debt, preferred stock or other instrument or security (a "Subsequent Placement"), or (C) be party to any solicitations or negotiations with regard to the foregoing.  Additionally, the Company agreed that until the second anniversary of the Closing Date, the Company would not, directly or indirectly, effect any Subsequent Placement unless the Company first provides the Investors notice of such Subsequent Placement and provides such Investors an opportunity to purchase up to 25% of the securities offered in such Subsequent Placement pursuant to the terms and conditions described in greater detail in the Purchase Agreement.
 
However, the above requirements do not apply to the Company's issuance or grant of any common stock issued or issuable: (i) in connection with any employee benefit plan approved by the Board of Directors, subject to a maximum of 150,000 shares to be issued to consultants in any calendar year; (ii) upon exercise of the warrants issued in the closing of the December 30, 2010 offering; (iii) upon exercise of any options or convertible securities which were outstanding on the day immediately preceding the Closing Date; and (iv) in connection with mergers, acquisitions, strategic business transactions or joint ventures with a strategic partner who is not in the business of making financial investments, in each case with non-affiliated third parties and otherwise on an arm's-length basis, the primary purpose of which is not to raise additional capital (collectively (i) through (iv), "Excluded Securities"); provided that any shares issued or issuable in connection with any transaction contemplated by this clause (iv) that is either primarily (A) attributable to capital raising for the Company (other than nominal amounts of capital) or (B) to raise capital for the Company, directly or indirectly, in connection with any transaction contemplated by this clause (iv), including, without limitation, securities issued in one or more related transactions or that result in similar economic consequences, shall not be deemed to be Excluded Securities.
 
As a result of the above, it may be harder for the Company to raise funding and/or issue securities in consideration for certain business purposes not included in the Excluded Securities, described above, which could prevent the Company from meeting its capital needs, limit the Company’s ability to grow its operations and implement its business plan and ultimately cause the value of the Company’s securities to decline in value.

The risk factors disclosed in this section and in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2010, in addition to the other information set forth in this quarterly report, could materially affect our business, financial condition or results of operations. Additional risks and uncertainties not currently known to us or that we deem to be immaterial could also materially adversely affect our business, financial condition or results of operations.

ITEM 2.  UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS.
 
On August 24, 2010, Lucas issued 24,123 shares of common stock valued at $26,717 to a consultant in connection with capital raising services. The Company also issued 51,470 shares of common stock to two individuals as compensation for their assistance in Lucas acquiring certain oil and gas properties. The shares were issued at the grant date fair value which totaled $78,696, or $1.52 per common share. We claim an exemption from registration afforded by Section 4(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Act”) since the foregoing issuance did not involve a public offering, the recipient took the shares for investment and not resale and we took appropriate measures to restrict transfer.  No underwriters or agents were involved in the foregoing issuance and we paid no underwriting discounts or commissions.

On September 7, 2010, Lucas purchased a 10% carried working interest in oil and gas properties from Mr. Stephan Vogt for $200,000 payable in Lucas common stock.  At December 31, 2010 Mr. Vogt had received 131,579 shares of Lucas common stock valued at $1.52 per share, the closing price on the date of the transaction.  We claim an exemption from registration afforded by Section 4(2) of the Act since the foregoing issuance did not involve a public offering, the recipient took the shares for investment and not resale and we took appropriate measures to restrict transfer.  No underwriters or agents were involved in the foregoing issuance and we paid no underwriting discounts or commissions.
