DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS. (a) Business Development. Form and Year of Organization Utah Resources International, Inc. ("URI" or the "Company") is a Utah corporation, organized in 1966 as Utah Industrial, Inc. It was renamed Utah Resources International, Inc. in 1969. The Company's executive offices are located at 297 W. Hilton Drive, Suite #4, St. George, Utah 84770. Stock Purchase Agreement - July 3, 1996 On April 5, 1996, Inter-Mountain Capital Corporation, a Delaware corporation wholly owned by John Fife ("IMCC"), entered into a Letter of Intent with the Company (the "Letter of Intent"), whereby IMCC agreed, if certain conditions were met, to purchase a 51% interest in the Company at a purchase price of $3.35 per share. One of the conditions for consummating the transaction contemplated by the Letter of Intent was the spinoff of Midwest Railroad Construction and Maintenance Corporation ("Midwest"). Pursuant to the Letter of Intent, IMCC agreed to pay 10% of the purchase price at closing with the remaining 90% owing to be evidenced by a five year promissory note. The Letter of Intent also provided that the Company grant IMCC a ten year option to purchase an additional 150,000 or more shares of URI's stock, so that IMCC, at all times would have the right to own a 51% interest in the Company. The Letter of Intent also provided that subsequent to the closing and subject to financing and other conditions, the Company would cause either a: (i) 12,500 to 1 share reverse split of the Company's stock, at $3.35 per share, with fractional shareholders given the option to round-up and maintain their shareholder status; or (ii) tender offer for its shares at $3.35 per share subject to certain payment options. Under the terms of the Letter of Intent, the Company agreed to indemnify IMCC and its shareholders and directors from and against any liability to the Company's shareholders, officers and/or directors arising out of IMCC's negotiation, execution and/or consummation of the Letter of Intent, the Stock Purchase Agreement and the transactions contemplated by the Letter of Intent. Furthermore, IMCC agreed to take all actions necessary to cause the Company to honor the Company's obligations to indemnify its officers and directors to the fullest extent permitted by law, including, but not limited to, the advancement of their legal fees and costs in connection with all present and future litigation involving them in their capacities as officers and directors of the Company. The Company entered into the Letter of Intent on April 5, 1996. On April 16, 1996, IMCC filed its Schedule 13D informing the Company's shareholders of its intent to engage in the two step transaction consisting of the acquisition of a majority interest and conducting a reverse stock split or a tender offer. It also gave notice of IMCC's intent to cause a class of securities of the Company to be delisted from a national securities exchange or cause a class of securities to cease to be authorized to be quoted in an inter-dealer quotation system of a registered national securities association, 2
10KSB3rd Page of 42TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 3rd
pursuant to Section 12(g)(4) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. In order to obtain a copy of the Letter of Intent and for a more detailed description of the terms of the Letter of Intent, see Schedule 13D filed by IMCC with the SEC on April 16, 1996. The Company entered into the Letter of Intent over the objections of Mark Jones and Jenny Morgan, being two directors of the Company. On May 17, 1996, Mark G. Jones, a shareholder and director of the Company at the time and controlling shareholder of Mark Technologies Corporation, brought a shareholders derivative suit captioned as Mark Technologies Corp., et al. v. Utah Resources International, Inc. et al., which was filed as Civil No. 96-090-3332CV in the Third Judicial Court of Salt Lake County, Utah (the "Second State Action") against the Company, E. Jay Sheen, R. Dee Erickson and Lyle Hurd, directors of the Company and IMCC. The Second State Action, included, among other things, a request for the issuance of a temporary restraining order and injunction against the transactions contemplated in the Letter of Intent. On or about June 26, 1996, the Company entered into two settlement agreements. The first settlement agreement was by and among the Company, John H. Morgan, Jr., Daisy R. Morgan, IMCC, John Fife, Robinson & Sheen, L.L.C., R. Dee Erickson, Lyle D. Hurd, and E. Jay Sheen (the "Morgan Settlement Agreement"), whereby certain disputes among the parties were resolved and settled and the parties agreed to use their best efforts to terminate the 1993 Settlement Agreement, as defined below. A copy of the Morgan Settlement Agreement is attached as Exhibit 10.37 to the Company's Form 10-KSB for the fiscal year ending December 31, 1995, filed with the SEC on January 8, 1997. The "1993 Settlement Agreement" was the result of the settlement of a shareholders' derivative action captioned as Ernest Muth, et al. v. John H. Morgan, Jr. et al., which was filed as Civil Number C-87-1632 in the Third Judicial District Court of Salt Lake County, Utah (the "First State Action"), where plaintiffs therein alleged, among other things, that the officers and directors of the Company committed various breaches of their fiduciary duties to the Company. A settlement agreement in the First State Action was entered on April 6, 1993 (the "1993 Settlement Agreement"). On or about July 21, 1995, attorneys for the Company on behalf of the Company filed an action against John H. Morgan, Jr., and Daisy R. Morgan, directors of the Company, to enforce the 1993 Settlement Agreement in the First State Action which resulted in certain findings of fact and conclusions of law and an order enforcing the 1993 Settlement Agreement entered by Judge Michael R. Murphy on October 4, 1995 (the "Murphy Order"). The Murphy Order was appealed by John H. Morgan, Jr. and Daisy R. Morgan and cross-appealed by the Company. An Order to Show Cause was subsequently filed in the First State Action on behalf of the Company by attorneys for the Company against John H. Morgan, Jr., Daisy R. Morgan, Mark G. Jones and others (the "Order to Show Cause"). The second settlement agreement was by and among the Company, R. Dee Erickson, E. Jay Sheen, Lyle D. Hurd, Mark G. Jones, Mark Technologies Corporation, Anne Morgan, Victoria Morgan, IMCC, John Fife and Robinson & Sheen, L.L.C. (the "1996 Settlement Agreement), whereby the parties, among other things, agreed to dismiss the Second State Action and to use their best efforts to terminate the 1993 Settlement Agreement and to settle certain other litigation. A copy of the 1996 Settlement Agreement is attached as Exhibit 10.38 to the Company's Form 10-KSB for the fiscal year ending December 31, 1995, filed with the SEC on January 8, 1997. For a more detailed description of the Company's legal proceedings, see "Item 3. Legal Proceedings," and copies of the Morgan Settlement Agreement and the 1996 Settlement Agreement which were attached as Exhibits 10.37 and 10.38 respectively to the Company's Form 10-KSB for the fiscal year ending December 31, 1995, filed with the SEC on January 8, 1997. In addition, the 1996 Settlement Agreement amended certain provisions of the Letter of Intent including, the elimination of the option that IMCC would cause the Company to initiate a tender offer for its shares and the reduction in the reverse split from 12,500 shares to 1 to 1,000 shares to 1 and an increase in the IMCC payment at closing from 10% of the purchase price to 15%. On or about August 9, 1996, a Motion to Intervene was filed by shareholders Jenny T. Morgan (a director of the Company at the time), Gerard E. Morgan, John C. Morgan and Karen J. Morgan (together the "Objectors"). On August 22, 1996, the court denied the Objector's petition. The 1996 Settlement Agreement and the Morgan Settlement were approved by the Third Judicial District Court of Salt Lake County, West Valley Department of Utah, on or about August 23, 1996. The First Federal Action and the Second State Action were dismissed with prejudice on August 28, 1996. The Order to Show Cause was dismissed with prejudice and the 1993 Settlement Agreement was terminated on August 29, 1996. On July 3, 1996, pursuant to the Letter of Intent and the 1996 Settlement Agreement, the Company and IMCC entered into a Stock Purchase Agreement (the "Stock Purchase Agreement"), whereby the Company issued and sold 3
10KSB4th Page of 42TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 4th
1,275,912 shares (the "Purchased Shares") of its common, $.10 par value per share stock (the "Common Stock") to IMCC, so that IMCC owned a 50.5% interest in the Company. IMCC acquired the Purchased Shares at a price equal to $3.35 per share for an aggregate purchase price of $4,274,305.20 (the "Purchase Price"), of which $641,145.78 was paid in cash by IMCC to the Company at the closing. The remaining portion of the purchase price of $3,633,159.42 was evidenced by IMCC's promissory note (the "Note"). The Note bears interest at a rate equal to the short-term applicable federal rate published by the Internal Revenue Service in effect at the time of closing, and is adjusted on each anniversary of the Note to the applicable short-term federal rate in effect on such anniversary date. Interest on the Note is to be paid currently in arrears on each anniversary of the Note. At the closing, IMCC paid $197,872.52 to the Company, which amount represented the present value first year of interest due under the Note. The principal and any unpaid interest accrued under the Note is due and payable August 1, 2001. The Note is secured by the Purchased Shares as evidenced by a stock pledge agreement, dated as of July 3, 1996, by and between IMCC and the Company (the "Stock Pledge Agreement"). Pursuant to a separate written guaranty agreement, John Fife personally guaranteed payment of 25% of all amounts due under the Note from time to time. As required by the Stock Purchase Agreement, E. Jay Sheen and R. Dee Erickson, submitted their resignations as directors of the Company, effective July 13, 1996. As further required by the Stock Purchase Agreement, John Fife was appointed a director of the Company. David Fife, the brother of John Fife, was also appointed as a director of the Company. John Fife and David Fife were appointed directors of the Company as part of the Muth Group pursuant to the 1993 Settlement Agreement, effective July 13, 1996. As required by the Stock Purchase Agreement, John Fife was elected President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company in July, 1996 pursuant to a 3-0 vote of the Board (Mark G. Jones and Jenny Morgan were not present for the vote). John Fife has since been elected director by a majority vote of the shareholders and President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board of the Company by unanimous vote of the directors. The Stock Purchase Agreement contemplated that subject to applicable state and federal securities and state corporate law, the Company would cause a 1,000 to 1 share reverse split of the Company's stock to the shareholders of record at $3.35 per share, with fractional shareholders given the option to either purchase additional fractional shares to round up to one whole share following the reverse split or sell their fractional shares for cash to the Company. IMCC was granted a ten year option to purchase 150,000 or more additional shares of stock at a purchase price equal to $3.35 per share and on the same terms and conditions as those provided under the Stock Purchase Agreement, so that after the reverse split IMCC may maintain its 50.5% majority interest in the Company. Subsequent to the reverse split and subject to applicable state and federal securities and state corporate law, any Company shares redeemed by the Company pursuant to the reverse split (the "Returned Shares") may be acquired by the remaining shareholders, other than IMCC or its affiliates, in increments of 1,000 shares (the "Returned Share Option"), at a purchase price equal to the pre-reverse-split price of $3.35 per share (the "Returned Share Purchase Price"). Only those shares for which the Company has received a fully and properly executed letter of transmittal, accompanied by the required documents, will qualify as Returned Shares for the purposes of this Returned Share Option. Such Common Stock shall be purchased in blocks of 1,000 shares of Common Stock such that each purchase of a 1,000 share block of Common Stock shall be converted into one (1) share of common $100.00 par value per share stock of the Company (the "New Stock"). In the event the Returned Share Option is over-subscribed, then each of the exercising shareholders may purchase the Returned Shares on a pro-rata basis (as determined by the number of shares held by each of the exercising shareholders as of the record date less those shares held by IMCC), but in no event in less than 1,000 share blocks. In the event of such over-subscription, each qualified shareholder could elect to purchase that percentage of Returned Shares equal to x/(y-z) where "x" equals the number of New Stock shares owned by the qualified shareholder wishing to purchase the Returned Shares, "y" equals the total number of issued shares of New Stock, and "z" equals the number of issued shares of New Stock owned by IMCC. Twenty-five percent (25%) of the Returned Share Purchase Price shall be payable in cash upon exercise, with the remaining balance of $2.51 per share being evidenced by a note (the "Returned Share Note"), payable in three (3) years. Subject to applicable Internal Revenue Service rules, the Returned Share Note shall bear simple interest at the short term applicable federal rate as stated in June, 1996, which interest shall be payable annually in arrears. Payment of the Returned Share Note will be secured by a pledge of the Returned Shares purchased, as converted into share(s) of New Stock, pursuant to a stock pledge agreement to be provided by the Company. Exercising shareholders purchasing Returned Shares shall be required to apply any dividends, 4
10KSB5th Page of 42TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 5th
distributions or other payments made to the shareholder of the Company on the Returned Shares/New Stock to payment of the unpaid balance of the Returned Share Note. Returned Shares, as converted into New Stock, purchased by an exercising shareholder shall be fully votable in accordance with the terms of the Company's organizational documents and other agreements binding the Company for so long as the exercising shareholder is not in default under the pledge agreement or the Returned Share Note. As a result of the reverse split, the Company is expected to become a non-SEC-reporting company. A company with assets of over $10 million becomes a "reporting company" when its shareholders number 500 or more and it complies with applicable state and federal securities laws. To thereafter be allowed to become a "non-SEC-reporting company" and cease reporting to the Securities and Exchange Commission, the number of shareholders must decline to less than 300 and the Company must comply with applicable state and federal securities laws. Of the approximately 558 shareholders, approximately 479 shareholders of record own fewer than 1,000 shares, leaving approximately 79 shareholders post reverse-split if none of these shareholders exercise their option to round up. In addition to the contractual requirement that a reverse stock split occur, as provided for in the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Company's senior management and its Board of Directors have assessed the advantages and disadvantages of the Company's status as a "reporting company" under the Exchange Act. First, such reporting is very costly. Furthermore, the Board of Directors does not believe that being a "reporting company" has given the Company any significant advantage the Company would not otherwise have had as a "non-SEC-reporting company." The Company's registration with the SEC has not improved flexibility for current or future financing of corporate expansion through the building of a broader equity base, nor has it made the valuation of shares of the Common Stock significantly easier (since no active market exists for the sale of stock which is reflective of the Company's operations and earnings potential). Finally, such registration has not resulted in the development of an active public market for the Common Stock and thus has not provided substantially increased liquidity for shareholders who desire to sell their Common Stock. The Company held its Annual Meeting of the Shareholders on Monday, March 8, 1999, at the Sheraton Four Points Hotel, 1450 South Hilton Drive, St. George, Utah 84770. At the Annual Meeting, the shareholders, among other things, voted in favor of a proposal to amend the Company's Articles of Incorporation to effect the reverse split of the Company's issued and outstanding common, $.10 par value per share stock (the "Common Stock"), effective Tuesday, March 16, 1999 (the "Effective Date"), on the basis that each 1,000 shares of Common Stock then outstanding will be converted into 1 share of common, $100.00 par value per share stock (the "New Stock"), with shareholders holding less than 1,000 shares of Common Stock or any increment thereof (after being given an option to purchase additional shares as needed to "round up" to the equivalent of 1,000 shares at a purchase price of $3.35 per share) being paid cash in exchange for their fractional shares at a price of $3.35 per share of each share outstanding immediately prior to such reverse split (the "Reverse Split"). Share Exchange Agreement On June 13, 1995, the Company consummated the exchange of 590,000 shares of its common stock, representing approximately 33% of the total issued and outstanding shares of the Company's common stock following the transaction, in return for receipt of all of the issued and outstanding stock of Midwest Railroad Construction and Maintenance Corporation ("Midwest") pursuant to a Plan of Share Exchange and Share Exchange Agreement, dated February 16, 1995 by and among the Company, Midwest, Robert D. Wolff ("RD Wolff") and Judith J. Wolff ("JJ Wolff") (the "Share Exchange Agreement"). The Share Exchange Agreement was approved by a 3-2 vote of the Board. Directors John H. Morgan, Jr., and Daisy R. Morgan voted against the Share Exchange Agreement. All of the common stock of Midwest was owned by RD Wolff and JJ Wolff. The Share Exchange Agreement was accomplished as a tax free reorganization pursuant to Section 368(a)(1)(B) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"). Midwest, headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, is in the railroad construction and maintenance business, operating out of five regional offices located in Utah, Wyoming, Colorado, Nebraska and New Mexico. Midwest also provides railroad engineering, surveying, bridge and structural maintenance, grade crossing and in-plant switching services. Pursuant to the terms of the Share Exchange Agreement, the Company agreed to: (i) indemnify Midwest and the Wolffs from any 5
10KSB6th Page of 42TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 6th
liability to the Company's shareholders, its officers or directors, whether brought directly by the person or in a derivative capacity arising from Midwest's or the Wolffs' negotiation, execution, or consummation of the Share Exchange Agreement; (ii) execute a three year employment agreement between RD Wolff and the Company, whereby RD Wolff would act as the President of Midwest; (iii) apply for a listing of its stock on the NASDAQ; and (iv) lend Midwest, in the form of a line of credit, a sum not to exceed $250,000, with the first draw available after February 15, 1995, evidenced by a promissory note in standard form, bearing an interest rate of 1% over the posted prime lending rate at First Security Bank of Utah, N.A., as of February 15, 1995, and adjusted each three months thereafter. Prior to the closing of the Share Exchange Agreement, Midwest borrowed a total of $100,000 against the line of credit. Pursuant to the terms and conditions of the Share Exchange Agreement, the line of credit from the Company became subordinate to Midwest's existing credit line of Three Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($350,000). The line of credit was secured by the assets and equipment of Midwest. The Company entered into an employment agreement with RD Wolff, dated as of June 13, 1995 (the "Wolff Employment Agreement"), and an operating agreement between Midwest and RD Wolff, dated as of June 13, 1995 (the "Operating Agreement"). Pursuant to the Wolff Employment Agreement, RD Wolff was to serve as CEO of the Company and Midwest, and RD Wolff was to receive One Hundred Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars ($125,000) per year in compensation during the term of the Wolff Employment Agreement. Furthermore, during the first five quarters of the Wolff Employment Agreement, beginning July 1, 1995, RD Wolff was to receive Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars ($25,000) in additional compensation per quarter. In addition to his base salary, RD Wolff was to receive an annual bonus computed on the after tax net earnings of Midwest, as follows: (a) five percent (5%) of the first Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($200,000) in net earnings of Midwest, (b) seven percent (7%) of the next Two Hundred Thousand Dollars ($200,000), and (c) ten percent (10%) of all amounts over the first Four Hundred Thousand Dollars ($400,000) in net earnings of Midwest. RD Wolff was also entitled to participate in the Company's health and benefit plans. Pursuant to the terms of the Operating Agreement and for services performed in connection with the consummation of the Share Exchange Agreement, the Company paid as compensation to each of R. Dee Erickson and E. Jay Sheen, both of whom were directors of the Company at the time of the execution of the Share Exchange Agreement, 38,000 shares each of the Company's Common Stock and One Hundred Four Thousand Dollars ($104,000) in cash. On July 18, 1995, Anne Morgan and Victoria Morgan, at the time shareholders of the Company and the adult daughters of John H. Morgan, Jr. ("JH Morgan") and Daisy R. Morgan ("DR Morgan"), both former directors and shareholders of the Company, filed a shareholders derivative action against R. Dee Erickson ("Erickson"), E. Jay Sheen ("Sheen"), Lyle D. Hurd ("Hurd") (Messrs. Erickson, Sheen and Hurd were three of the five directors of the Company at the time the suit was filed, with JH Morgan and DR Morgan being the remaining two directors), the Company, Midwest, RD Wolff and JJ Wolff, in the United States District Court for the Central District of Utah, Case Number 2:95CV661J, captioned as Anne Morgan et al. v. R. Dee Erickson, et al. (the "First Federal Action"). The complainants alleged, among other things that the defendants had violated proxy solicitation rules, violated disclosure rules under the Exchange Act of 1934, breached their fiduciary duties to the Company's shareholders, breached professional duties, committed fraud, wasted and looted the Company's assets, converted Company property, engaged in self-dealing, mismanaged the Company and breached their duty of loyalty. The complaint sought, among other things, the rescission of the Share Exchange Agreement. The terms of the Letter of Intent between IMCC and the Company required that the Company rescind the Share Exchange Agreement. For the foregoing reason, Midwest and the Company entered into a Splitoff Agreement, dated as of April 25, 1996 (the "Splitoff Agreement"), whereby the Share Exchange Agreement was rescinded. A copy of the Splitoff Agreement is attached as Exhibit 10.36 to the Company's Form 10-KSB for the fiscal year ending December 31, 1995, filed with the SEC on January 8, 1997. Pursuant to the terms of the Splitoff Agreement, URI transferred all of the outstanding shares of Midwest stock held by the Company to the Wolffs in exchange for the 590,000 shares of URI stock then held by the Wolffs which transfer was accomplished tax free in accordance with Section 355 of the Code. Furthermore, the Share Exchange Agreement, the Wolff Employment Agreement and the Operating Agreement were canceled. RD Wolff ceased to be the President of URI. Midwest received a net intercompany transfer of approximately Three Hundred Sixteen Thousand Nine Hundred Seventy-Four Dollars ($316,974) through March 31, 1996, which Midwest retained. Furthermore, the parties to the Splitoff Agreement agreed that in the event intercompany transfers for the period from July 1, 1995 through March 31, 1996 were: (i) less than Three Hundred Sixteen Thousand Nine Hundred Seventy-Four Dollars ($316,974), then URI 6
10KSB7th Page of 42TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 7th
would pay Midwest the difference; or (ii) more than Three Hundred Sixteen Thousand Nine Hundred Seventy-Four Dollars ($316,974), then Midwest would pay URI the difference. Pursuant to the Splitoff Agreement, URI agreed to indemnify Midwest and the Wolffs and their respective agents, employees, attorneys, officers, directors and assigns from any and all claims, causes of action, liabilities, damages, costs, expenses and attorneys' fees arising from or relating in any way to URI or the Share Exchange Agreement. This indemnification provision would not apply to acts of fraud, gross negligence or willful misconduct by RD Wolff. The Wolffs and Midwest agreed to indemnify URI and its respective agents, employees, attorneys, officers, directors, successors and assigns from any and all claims, causes of action, liabilities and damages arising from or relating in any way to the Splitoff Agreement, which indemnification obligation is limited to Three Hundred Twelve Thousand Dollars ($312,000). Within 30 days from the date of execution of the Splitoff Agreement, the Company's accountants were to calculate the federal, state and local income taxes attributable to Midwest's business operations (excluding any impact of salary payable or paid to RD Wolff or any intercompany charges to the Company for rent, overhead and administrative expenses) for the period commencing June 1, 1995 and terminating on December 31, 1995. Such taxes were to be determined on the basis as if the Company and Midwest were not filing a consolidated tax return for the same period or part thereof (whether or not a consolidated return is filed). The amount of such taxes is to be considered an intercompany receivable between the Company and Midwest. Pursuant to the terms of the Splitoff Agreement, Midwest agreed to pay such tax amount to the Company in twelve installments. Simultaneous with the execution of the Splitoff Agreement, Midwest paid the Company the sum of Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000) as an initial tax payment. The balance due the Company is to be paid in eleven additional equal monthly installments, with each such installment due on the first day of each month until all eleven installments have been paid in full. The first of the eleven monthly installments is due and payable on the first day of the month following the determination of the taxes owed by Midwest to the Company. The Company's accountants have determined that Midwest owes the Company Forty-Five Thousand Four Hundred Sixty-Nine Dollars ($45,469) in taxes, of which Thirty-Five Thousand Four Hundred Sixty-Nine Dollars ($35,469) remains due. Midwest also owes the Company the additional amount of Fifty-Four Thousand One Hundred Eighty-Four Dollars and 61/100 ($54,184.61) related to Ladd Eldredge's salary, audit and other expenses. Midwest has disputed the amounts claimed by the Company as owed by Midwest. The Company and Midwest have had ongoing discussions regarding resolving this matter. (b) Business of Company. URI is a real property development corporation. The Company directly owns approximately 396 acres of undeveloped land in St. George, Utah, approximately 350 acres of which are developable on which it conducts its real property development business, primarily through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Tonaquint, Inc. ("Tonaquint"). Most of the land is near the Southgate golf course. The Company's undeveloped real property is adjacent to Interstate Highway 15, a major traffic route from Salt Lake City to Las Vegas and Southern California. URI's real estate development activities in recent years have concentrated on subdividing and selling improved lots for residential construction, as the financial condition of the Company and the St. George, Utah real estate market have permitted. The Company's lands include premium priced hillside view lots, as well as lower-priced lots. In addition, the Company pursues commercial real estate development of some of its undeveloped real property. The Company also receives revenues from its ownership of overriding royalty interests in producing oil and gas leases in Utah and Wyoming, dating from the Company's historic business of acquiring and selling oil, gas and mineral leases. The Company has invested Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000) in China Peregrine Food Corporation, a Delaware corporation traded publicly on the NASDAQ bulletin board system ("China Peregrine"). China Peregrine distributes dairy and non-dairy food products in several major cities in the People's Republic of China. The Company acquired 88,333 shares of convertible preferred stock on November 13, 1998. The Company is now converting its preferred stock into common stock and selling it on the public market. The Company's investment in China Peregrine is substantially less than ten percent (10%) of the outstanding stock of China Peregrine. 7

Real Property Development Activities Through year end 1998, the Company had sales in the amount of Two Hundred Thirty-Four Thousand Seven Hundred Eighteen Dollars ($234,718) as compared to land sales in the amount of Five Hundred Thirty Thousand Five Hundred Fifty-Three Dollars ($530,553) in 1997. In July of 1992, Tonaquint executed a Sale and Option Agreement with Kay H. Traveler (the "Sale and Option Agreement"), pursuant to which Tonaquint was to sell 14 acres to Mr. Traveler, for a total purchase price of Three Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($350,000) (Twenty-Five Thousand Dollars ($25,000) per acre, and grant Mr. Traveler an option to acquire an additional 40 acres at option exercise prices ranging from Twenty Thousand Dollars ($20,000) to Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000 per acre), exercisable over five years, so long as minimum option exercises occurred each year. Mr. Traveler's inspection of the 14 acres disclosed adverse soil conditions, resulting in the execution of an Addendum to the Sale and Option Agreement by the parties in March of 1993. Mr. Traveler was granted an option to acquire a total of 56 acres at prices ranging Twenty Thousand Dollars ($20,000) to Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000) per acre. The Kay Traveler Sale and Option Agreement resulted in 1998 sales of 4.11 acres for the sum of Two Hundred Thirty-Four Thousand Seven Hundred Eighteen ($234,718) and 1997 sales of 6.67 acres for the sum of Three Hundred Seventeen Thousand Sixty-Six Dollars ($317,066) and 1996 sales of 2.11 acres for the sum of One Hundred Six Thousand Four Hundred Thirty-Two Dollars ($106,432). From July 1992 through December 31, 1998, Kay Traveler exercised his option for a cumulative total of 44.79 of the 75.98 acres available, for the sum of One Million Five Hundred Fifty Thousand One Hundred Fifty-Six Dollars ($1,550,156). As of December 31, 1998 approximately 31.2 acres remain under option to Mr. Traveler at prices ranging from Twenty-Two Thousand Dollars ($22,000) to Fifty Thousand Dollars ($50,000) per acre. During the latter half of 1994, the Company began its development efforts for Southgate Phase III, consisting of a total of 37 acres of land above the Southgate golf course, suitable for view-lot residential construction. The land to be developed is on the hillside directly to the south of the Southgate golf course and directly to the west of Interstate 15. The sloping topography of the land requires that the Hillside Ordinance Committee of the St. George Planning and Zoning Commission approve the Company's planned development of the acreage. In 1998, The Company received approval and has commenced construction for the development of all 37 acres for a total of 76 lots. The approval process took longer than originally anticipated, due in part to the restrictions of the hillside ordinance and the increasing political pressure to restrict real estate development generally in St. George, which has resulted in an increasing regulatory burden on real estate development. To finance the construction costs, the Company secured development financing from the State Bank of Southern Utah in the amount of One Hundred Sixty-Five Thousand Dollars ($165,000) during March 1999. John Fife has personally guaranteed the repayment of such financing. Currently, the Company is excavating, building roads, bringing utilities to the property, constructing curbs and gutters, and selling the improved lots in the first phase. To date, the Company has received earnest money deposits reserving three of the six lots in the first phase of development. In 1998, the Company received preliminary approval from the Planning and Zoning Commission and the city of St. George for the development of Southgate Village, a 67 unit, 9.6 acre townhouse community located at the northwest of the Southgate golf course and adjacent to the proposed Southgate Valley subdivision. The townhomes range from approximately 1,400-1,800 square feet. The Company is preparing construction drawings, soils reports, excavation plans, and bids. In the fourth quarter of 1998, the City of St. George granted the Company an excavation permit, and in the first quarter of 1999 the Company excavated the entire 9.6 acres. Currently, the Company is waiting to receive final approval on its revised construction drawings; after which, the Company expects to start construction on the first phase of 20 lots at the end of the first quarter 1999. 8

Real Property Development, Industry Overview, Government Regulation, and Competition The real estate development industry in general and the residential real estate development industry in particular is a high risk industry, subject to changes in general economic conditions, fluctuating interest rates, and changing demand for the types of developments being considered. Volatility in local and regional land use demands, as well as changing supply and demand for the specific uses for which the real property is being developed are also factors in assessing the relative risks of the business. The demand for residential real estate development is particularly sensitive to changing interest rates and shifting demographics. Both of these factors affecting the demand for residential housing are highly unpredictable over both the short and long-term. Real estate development is a government regulated industry. The regulation of real estate development is often carried out in an unpredictable fashion, reflective of both political and rational considerations. Regulation is carried on by municipal, county, state and federal agencies, but municipal and county governments have the greatest regulatory impact. St. George City, in which URI operates, has been adopting increasingly restrictive regulations associated with development activities, including the adoption of more restrictive building codes and ordinances, greater emphasis on land use planning, pressure to increase the number of low density residential developments, and heightened public concern aimed at limiting development as a means to control growth. Development in some areas close to the Company's lands may be limited by governmental environmental protection activities. Government regulation may have an impact on the viability of current real estate development by the Company. The real property development industry is highly competitive. Several development companies with interests in St. George have longer operating histories, greater financial strength and more experience in the industry than does the Company. The Company's development activities historically have represented less than five percent (5%) of total real estate development activity in the area in and around St. George, and, in management's view, that percentage is likely to decrease in the near term given the increase in overall development activities in the area. The perceived strength of the St. George real estate market has recently attracted many more developers to the area, increasing the competition for the Company. Partnerships In 1998, the Company dissolved the following general and limited partnerships: Southgate Resort General Partnership, Southgate Plaza General Partnership, URI-MGO Health Venture General Partnership, Service Station #2 Limited Partnership, Southgate Resort Limited Partnership, Southgate Plaza Limited Partnership, Country Club Partnership, and Tonaquint Indian Hills Limited Partnership. In August 1998, the Company dissolved Southgate Resort, a Utah general partnership, and Southgate Plaza, a Utah general partnership, pursuant to a Partition Agreement among the partners of those partnerships (the "Parties). The Parties included Southgate Plaza Limited Partnership, Southgate Resort Limited Partnership, Vera R. Hughes Grandchildren Trust ("Hughes Trust"), and Jacquetta Brown Ogden Properties, L.C. ("Brown Properties"). The Parties agreed to distribute all of the assets and liabilities of the partnerships to the Parties, and resolve any and all disputes existing among them. Specifically, the Parties caused Southgate Resort to transfer the real property owned by it to the Hughes Trust (approximately 0.606 acres). The Parties also caused Southgate Plaza to transfer its real properties to Southgate Plaza Limited Partnership (approximately 2.21 acres) (52.5% owned by the Company), Hughes Trust (approximately 2.2 acres), and Brown Properties (approximately 2.02 acres). The Partition Agreement further required that Southgate Plaza transfer to Soutgate Plaza Limited Partnership, Hughes Trust, and Brown Properties, as tenants in common, approximately .4524 acres of real property. The Parties also assumed equal shares of the liabilities of the partnerships. Furthermore, the Parties agreed to pay their pro 9
10KSB10th Page of 42TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 10th
rata shares of certain special improvement district payments allocated to the transferred properties payable to the city of St. George. In addition, the Parties released all causes of action and/or claims each may have had against each other with respect to Southgate Resort and Southgate Plaza, their properties, activities, and management. As a result of the Partition Agreement, the Company dissolved Southgate Resort Limited Partnership, which was owned entirely by the Company. On December 15, 1998, the Company, Tonaquint, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company ("Tonaquint"), John H. Morgan, Jr. ("JH Morgan"), Daisy R. Morgan ("DR Morgan"), Morgan Gas & Oil Company ("MGO"), the Estate of John Morgan Sr. (the "Morgan Estate"), and the John Morgan Sheltered Trust (the "Morgan Sheltered Trust") (collectively the "Morgan Parties") entered into a Partnership Settlement Agreement ("PS Agreement") pursuant to which the Company and related entities resolved certain disputes and controversies involving the Company, Tonaquint, JH Morgan, DR Morgan, MGO, the Morgan Estate and the Morgan Sheltered Trust. Pursuant to the terms of the PS Agreement, the Morgan Parties transferred to the Company all of their interests in URI-MGO Health Venture, Service Station #2 Limited Partnership, Country Club Partnership and Tonaquint Indian Hills Limited Partnership (collectively, the "Partnerships"). In exchange, the Company (i) delivered a promissory note to MGO for Eighty Thousand Four Hundred Ninety-One Dollars ($80,491) bearing an interest rate of nine percent (9%) per annum with a maturity of two years, or upon the sale of certain Company properties securing the note; (ii) transferred to MGO 137,102 shares of MGO stock representing all of the MGO stock owned by the Company; (iii) assigned to MGO 33.3334% of the net proceeds from the future sale of certain real property owned by the Company; (iv) delivered to the Morgan Sheltered Trust a promissory note for Twenty-Two Thousand Six Hundred Ninety Dollars ($22,690); (v) assigned to the Morgan Sheltered Trust 14.663% of the net proceeds from the future sale of certain real property owned by the Company; and (vi) paid to JH Morgan the sum of Seven Thousand Dollars ($7,000). In addition, the Morgan Estate paid the Company Seven Thousand One Hundred Twenty-Four Dollars ($7,124). The Morgan Parties also agreed to cooperate with the Company in winding up the Partnerships. The parties also agreed to release each other from all causes of action and claims arising from or related to the matters described in PS Agreement. Pursuant to the PS Agreement, the Company assumed the liabilities and clean-up costs associated with the gas station previously owned by Service Station #2 Limited Partnership. In 1989, The Service Station #2 Limited Partnership replaced its gasoline underground storage tanks, which the partnership was informed had been leaking. From November of 1992 through December 31, 1998, the partnership spent approximately Three Hundred Forty-Five Thousand Dollars ($345,000) on efforts to remediate the soil contamination by gasoline and other hydrocarbons which is alleged to have occurred from the operation of the service station. On or about April 16, 1997, the Partnership sold the service station property but retained the obligation to complete the remediation of the property. The Company has hired consultants and engineers and is following their recommendations to remediate the property as required by Utah law and regulations. As a result of the PS Agreement, the Company owned one hundred percent (100%) of the interests in the Partnerships with the exception of Country Club Partnership and Tonaquint Indian Hills Partnership, in which the Company owned 96.64% and 85.57% of the interests, respectively. Prior to December 31, 1998, the Company purchased the remaining 3.36% interests in Country Club Partnership from the remaining partners for Five Hundred Four and 59/100 Dollars ($504.59), which represented the balance of such partners capital accounts. Prior to December 31, 1998, Tonaquint Indian Hills Partnership terminated in accordance with its terms. As part of the termination, the Company caused Tonaquint Indian Hills Partnership to distribute its assets to its partners. Overriding Royalties in Oil and Gas Leases URI has overriding royalty interests in oil and gas properties held by various other parties. All revenues from the Company's interests in the 10
10KSB11th Page of 42TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 11th
properties have been received in cash. The Company received royalties in the amount of One Hundred Ninety-Four Thousand Eight Hundred Forty-Three Dollars ($194,843) in 1998 as compared to One Hundred Seventy-Five Thousand Five Hundred Seventy-Two Dollars ($176,572) in 1997. URI has not engaged in the acquisition and sale of oil and gas leases for many years and has no intention of doing so in the future, nor does it have facilities or means to perform the exploration, development and operation of oil and gas wells on properties in which it has interests. Mineral or oil and gas exploration and development is undertaken by third parties. If production is realized on any properties in which URI has an interest, it receives a share of gross production revenues based upon the percentage overriding royalty interest it has retained. China Peregrine The Company has invested Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000) in China Peregrine Food Corporation, a Delaware corporation traded publicly on the NASDAQ bulletin board system ("China Peregrine"). China Peregrine distributes dairy and non-dairy food products in several major cities in the People's Republic of China. The Company closed on the acquisition of 88,333 shares of convertible preferred stock on November 13, 1998. The Company is now converting its preferred stock into common stock and selling it into the public market. Employees In 1998, the Company employed two full-time employees. In 1997, the Company employed three full-time employees and no part-time employees. Pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement, the Company and John Fife entered into an employment agreement, dated as of February 27, 1998, but commencing as of July 13, 1996, which provided for the employment of Mr. Fife as President and CEO of the Company with an annual salary of One Hundred Ninety-Five Thousand Dollars ($195,000). In 1998, the Board voted unanimously to have Mr. Fife assume the responsibilities of CFO. The Company and Tonaquint, Inc., its wholly owned subsidiary, currently employ Gerry Brown on a full-time basis, to act as the Vice President of the Company, where he provides real estate planning, development and sales services for the Company, and Tonaquint, Inc. Mr. Brown is currently the President of Tonaquint, Inc., where he assists in land use planning, negotiating sales and financing arrangements, obtaining government approvals, arranging for construction contracts, and supervising the performance of engineering services as have been required. During 1998, the Company replaced Ladd Eldredge who had been acting as the Company's Secretary, Treasurer, CFO, and office manager. Mr. Eldredge has agreed to provide services to the Company on an hourly basis. The Company hired a part-time bookkeeper, and appointed Jonathan K. Hansen as Secretary. As noted above, Mr. Fife assumed the responsibilities of CFO. No employees are party to a collective bargaining agreement with the Company. ITEM 2. DESCRIPTION OF PROPERTY St. George Properties The Company intends to develop its property, primarily through subdividing and selling improved lots for residential construction. The Company is also engaged in selling undeveloped parcels to other developers. Furthermore, management believes that approximately 25 acres of the Company's lands are suitable for commercial development. Oil & Gas Interests The Company has overriding royalty interests in oil and gas wells producing primarily in the Unitah Basin, Unitah County, Utah, and Sublette County, Wyoming. The Company owns overriding royalty interests of from .025 of 1% to 3% of production. The Company was not the original lessee on several of the oil and gas property leases. The original lessees were affiliates of, or related parties to, the Company. As to those lessees, the Company's royalty interest was obtained by assignment from the original lessees. In some cases, the assignments have not been recorded. The Company has no unamortized investment in oil and gas properties at December 31, 1998. 11
10KSB12th Page of 42TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 12th
Many oil, gas and hydrocarbon leases issued by the State of Utah or the United States are issued for definite periods of time, often from five to ten years. If, at the end of the lease period, production has been realized and is continuing on the property subject to the lease, the term of the lease continues for the period of commercial production. Thus, the continuing interest of the Company in state and federal leases is dependent upon the ability of the third party operators to develop significant production on the properties subject to those leases. The expense of compliance with environmental regulations on lands in which the Company may have overriding royalty interests is not borne by the Company. Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, New Mercur Gold Exploration, Inc., the Company holds a fifty percent (50%) joint interest in ten patented lode mining claims covering approximately 137 acres in Tooele County, Utah. The claims have been leased to Barrick Mercur Gold Mines for a nominal amount. There is presently no production on the properties. Development of the Company's mineral properties may be affected by federal and state regulation relating to the protection of the environment. Such regulation may prevent the development of properties owned by the Company, or those in which it retains an overriding royalty interest. The Company has no value for this asset recorded in the financial statements at December 31, 1998. Office Space URI leases an office for its headquarters at 297 W. Hilton Drive, Suite #4, St. George, Utah. John Fife, President, CEO, CFO and Chairman of the Board of the Company, maintains his office at 360 E. Randolph Street, Suite 2402, Chicago, Illinois 60601, where he carries out the business of the Company along with the responsibilities of other business ventures unrelated to the Company. To date, the Company does not have an agreement with Mr. Fife for use of the space and has not reimbursed Mr. Fife for the cost of the office space and related administrative costs incurred on behalf of the Company and these costs have not been accrued by the Company. ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS Case Number 98 CV 0900576. On or about January 20, 1998, Mark G. Jones, a former director of the Company together with his wholly owned corporation Mark Technologies Corp. ("MTC"), a greater than ten percent (10%) shareholder of the Company filed suit against the Company, John Fife, President, CEO, CFO, Chairman of the Board and sole shareholder of IMCC, the majority shareholder of the Company, David Fife, a director of the Company, Lyle D. Hurd, Jr., a director of the Company and Gerry Brown, Vice President of the Company, in the Third Judicial District Court, in Salt Lake County, Utah, in a suit captioned, Mark G. Jones and Mark Technologies Corp. vs. Utah Resources International, Inc., et al., case number 98 CV 0900576. Mr. Jones, on behalf of himself and MTC, claims that the defendants violated a certain settlement agreement by and among the Company, R. Dee Erickson, E. Jay Sheen, Lyle D. Hurd, Jr., Mark G. Jones, MTC, Anne Morgan, Victoria Morgan, Inter-Mountain Capital Corporation, John Fife and Robinson & Sheen, L.L.C. (the "1996 Settlement Agreement"). A copy of the 1996 Settlement Agreement is attached as Exhibit 10.38 to the Company's Form 10-KSB for Fiscal Year End 1995. Mr. Jones alleges that the defendants breached the 1996 Settlement Agreement by: (i) failing to execute a written employment agreement between John Fife and the Company; (ii) failing to use their best efforts to unwind the Company's contractual relationship with Morgan Gas & Oil Company; (iii) recognizing the Company's issuance of stock options to Messrs. Hurd and Brown; (iv) failing to reimburse Mr. Jones and MTC for all of the additional, remaining costs which Mr. Jones claimed were not previously reimbursed pursuant to the 1996 Settlement Agreement; and (v) failing to pay Mr. Jones for expenses incurred by him while acting as a director of the Company. Mr. Jones and MTC are seeking relief in the form of specific performance of the Settlement Agreement and for attorneys' fees and costs incident to the suit. The Company had moved for summary dismissal of the complaint on the grounds that the issues complained of are moot and without factual or legal basis. On June 25, 1998, the Court stayed the Company's motion for summary dismissal pending discovery. On August 5, 1998, the Company received notice that the Court denied its motion to dismiss 12
10KSB13th Page of 42TOC1stPreviousNextBottomJust 13th
ccertain counts of the complaint. On August 19, 1998, plaintiffs filed an amended complaint. The Company has filed an answer, affirmative defenses and counterclaim to the amended complaint. The counterclaim seeks damages against Mr. Jones and MTC for their alleged violation of the Settlement Agreement. Plaintiffs filed their Reply to the Company's counterclaim on October 26, 1998. In January, the defendants filed a motion for summary judgment on all of the claims made by Mr. Jones and MTC. That motion is pending. On April 1, 1999, the Court granted Mr. Jones and MTC leave to take limited discovery to respond to defendants' motion for summary judgement. Mr. Jones and MTC have been ordered by the Court to file their response to defendants' motion for summary judgment within fifteen days of completing the aforementioned limited discovery. Case Number 98 CV 0500904. On or about April 17, 1998, MTC and Mark G. Jones filed a second suit against the Company in the Fifth Judicial District Court, Washington County, Utah, captioned, Mark Technologies Corp., and Mark G. Jones vs. Utah Resources International, Inc., et al., case number 98 CV 0500904. The defendants in the suit are the Company, John Fife, David Fife, Lyle D. Hurd, Jr., Gerry Brown and Ladd Eldredge, Secretary and Treasurer of the Company. Mr. Jones, on behalf of himself and MTC, claims that the individual defendants have, among other things: (i) wasted corporate assets; (ii) failed to pursue corporate opportunities; (iii) mismanaged the Company; and (iv) failed to follow general rules of corporate governance. He is seeking appointment of a receiver and the judicial dissolution of the Company. On May 29, 1998, the Company filed a motion to strike the complaint as legally insufficient. The Court has denied the Company's motion to strike. The Company filed a response to the complaint on or about August 21, 1998. Mr. Jones and MTC have filed discovery related motions which are scheduled to be heard on April 21, 1999. ITEM 4. SUBMISSION OF MATTERS TO A VOTE OF SECURITY HOLDERS There were no matters submitted to a vote of the security holders during the fourth quarter of the 1998 fiscal year covering this report. The Company held its Annual Meeting of the Shareholders on Monday, March 8, 1999, at the Sheraton Four Points Hotel, 1450 South Hilton Drive, St. George, Utah 84770. At the meeting the shareholders were asked to: (i) consider and vote upon a proposal to amend the Company's Articles of Incorporation to effect the reverse split of the Company's issued and outstanding common, $.10 par value per share stock (the "Common Stock"), effective Tuesday, March 16, 1999 (the "Effective Date"), on the basis that each 1,000 shares of Common Stock then outstanding will be converted into 1 share of common, $100.00 par value per share stock (the "New Stock"), with shareholders holding less than 1,000 shares of Common Stock or any increment thereof (after being given an option to purchase additional shares as needed to "round up" to the equivalent of 1,000 shares at a purchase price of $3.35 per share) being paid cash in exchange for their fractional shares at a price of $3.35 per share of each share outstanding immediately prior to such reverse split (the "Reverse Split"); (ii) elect five directors to hold office until the next annual meeting of shareholders or until their successors have been elected and qualified; and (iii) transact such other business as may properly come before the meeting and any adjournment thereof. 13

Dee Erickson, E. Jay Sheen, Lyle D. Hurd, Mark G. Jones, Mark Technologies Corporation, Anne Morgan, Victoria Morgan, IMCC, John Fife and Robinson & Sheen, L.L.C. (the "1996 Settlement Agreement"), wherein the Company redeemed 22,950 shares of Anne Morgan's URI stock and 17,602 shares of Victoria Morgan's URI stock, in cash, at $3.35 per share, and (iii) the conclusion of the exchange of 10.6 acres of land and 34,150 shares of C.E.C. Industries Corporation stock for 103,488 shares of the Company's stock; the Company Proxy Statement. (See "RISK FACTORS/IMCC Transaction and Settlement Agreements.") IMCC has made no additional purchases of the Company's stock, since July 3, 1996, when it acquired 1,275,912 shares of the Company's stock to obtain a majority ownership interest in the Company. Since July 3, 1996, John Fife, individually, has acquired 51,193 shares of the Company's stock. He purchased these shares during the third and fourth quarters of 1998 (2,500 shares on 8/6/98, 2,500 shares on 8/18/98, 2,500 shares on 9/14/98, 4,000 shares on 9/16/98, 2,000 shares on 9/21/98, 2,100 shares on 10/7/98 and 35,593 shares on 12/11/98).

January 26, 1996, to shareholders of record January 12, 1996. A decision to pay dividends in the future will depend upon the Company's profitability, need for liquidity and other financial considerations. There are approximately 558 shareholders of the 2,522,808 outstanding shares of the Company's Common Stock. Approximately 479 shareholders hold less than 1,000 shares of the Company's Common Stock. ITEM 6. MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OR PLAN OF OPERATION RESULTS OF OPERATIONS The Company had sales of Two Hundred Thirty-Four Thousand Seven Hundred Eighteen Dollars ($234,718) in 1998 as compared with land sales of Five Hundred Thirty Thousand Five Hundred Fifty-Three Dollars ($530,553) in 1997. Income on royalties from production under oil and gas and mineral leases amounted to) One Hundred Ninety-Four Thousand Eight Hundred Forty-Three Dollars ($194, 843) and One Hundred Seventy-Six Thousand Five Hundred Seventy-Two Dollars ($176,572) for 1998 and 1997, respectively. The increase in royalties income is due to expanded production. Cost of land sold declined to Sixteen Thousand Four Hundred Ninety-Four Dollars ($16,494) in 1998 from Two Hundred Seven Thousand Six Hundred Ninety-One Dollars ($207,691) in 1997. General and administrative expenses were Eight Hundred Fifty Six Thousand Three Hundred Thirty-Nine ($856,339) in 1998, as compared to One Million Two Hundred Twenty-Two Thousand Forty Dollars ($1,222,040) in 1997. The Company had a net loss of Two Hundred Three Thousand Five Hundred Twenty-Four Dollars ($203,524) in 1998 as compared to a net loss of Four Hundred Forty-Four Thousand and Six Hundred Twenty-Three Dollars ($444,623) for 1997. LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES Cash requirements of URI are met by funds provided from operations consisting of (a) the sale of improved lots and undeveloped property; (b) royalty income; (c) interest income earned on money held in interest bearing accounts, (d) from proceeds from the sale of its Common Stock to IMCC, and (e) proceeds from investments made by the Company. Certain investments of the Company and expenses paid were made from proceeds of loans secured by the Company's real estate holdings. The Company presently anticipates that cash on hand, cash from land sales, royalties, and investments will be the primary sources for future additional liquidity for the Company. It is anticipated that the Company's need for cash which exceeds its present resources and operating revenues will be met through real estate secured borrowings. In 1998, the Company executed a One Million Dollar ($1,000,000) Revolving Credit Note with Mr. Layton Ott for purposes of having a source of funds for working capital and financing investment opportunities. The note bears interest at the rate of 12.5% per annum payable monthly and has a maturity of one year with an option to extend the term for an additional six months at the Company's discretion. The note is secured by approximately forty acres of the Company's land in the Southgate Hills III development. The Company expects to be required to expend funds for the cleanup of gasoline which has apparently leaked from tanks owned by the Service Station Partnership, which have been replaced. Engineering estimates of total cleanup costs are not determinable due to uncertainties with respect to state compliance requirements and the, as yet, unknown extent of the contamination. In 1998, approximately $42,400 was expended toward this clean-up operation and approximately Three Hundred Forty-Five Thousand Dollars ($345,000) has been expended by the Company to date. In 1998, the Company drew down Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000) from the Revolving Credit Note to acquire 88,333 shares of convertible preferred stock in China Peregrine Food Corporation, a Delaware corporation publicly traded on the NASDAQ bulletin board system ("China Peregrine"). China Peregrine is a distributor of dairy and non-dairy food products in several major cities in the People's Republic of China and owns and operates two large dairy processing plants in China. The convertible preferred stock pays an 8% dividend, which accrues and is payable quarterly in the form of additional common stock. At the Company's discretion, the preferred stock may be sold on the open market and converted to common stock at a 25% discount to the stock's 10-day trailing 15

average bid price. Through year end 1998, the Company sold 14,000 shares for a realized gain of Four Thousand Three Hundred Twenty-Four Dollars ($4,324). The Company is actively seeking other investment opportunities to generate additional revenues. No separate financing commitment has been obtained for the purpose of completing the 1,000 to 1 reverse stock split. The Company has no plans for major capital expenditures beyond the cost of improving portions of its real property. The Company's business is influenced by interest rates, inflation and market demands. Its royalty income from oil and gas interests is affected by fluctuations in the price of oil and the related decisions to drill new wells and the rates at which wells are pumped. The Company has no control over the oil and gas field operations. As of July 3, 1996, the Company holds a promissory note from IMCC in the original principal amount of Three Million Six Hundred Thirty-Three Thousand One Hundred Fifty-Nine Dollars ($3,633,159) (the "Note"). The Note bears interest at a rate equal to the short-term applicable federal rate published by the Internal Revenue Service in effect at the time of closing the Stock Purchase Agreement, and is adjusted on each anniversary of the Note to the applicable short-term federal rate in effect on such anniversary date. Interest on the Note is to be paid currently in arrears on each anniversary of the Note. At the closing, IMCC paid the Company One Hundred Ninety-Seven Thousand Eight Hundred Seventy-Two and 52/100 Dollars ($197,872.52), which amount represented the present value first year of interest due under the Note. The principal and any unpaid interest accrued under the Note is due and payable August 1, 2001. The Note is secured by the 1,275,912 shares purchased by IMCC as evidenced by a stock pledge agreement, dated as of July 3, 1996 between IMCC and the Company (the "Stock Pledge Agreement"). Pursuant to a separate written guaranty agreement, John Fife personally guaranteed payment of twenty-five percent (25%) of all amounts due under the Note. STOCK PURCHASE AGREEMENT - JULY 3, 1996 See Part I, Item 1. YEAR 2000 The Year 2000 issue is the result of computer programs using two digits rather than four to define the applicable year. Computer programs that have date-sensitive software may recognize a date using "00" as the year 1900 rather than the year 2000. This could result in system failures or miscalculations leading to disruptions in a company's operations. The Company is assessing the readiness of its internal computer systems and expects to implement successfully the systems and programming changes necessary to address the year 2000 issues. The Company does not believe that the cost of such acttions will have a material effect on the results of operations or financial condition. There can be no assurance, however, that there will not be a delay in, or increased costs associated with, the implementation of such changes. Failure to complete necessary changes could have an adverse effect on future results of operations or financial condition. The Company is also assessing the possible effects of the Company's operations of the year 2000 readiness of significant customers, suppliers, and financial institutions with which it transacts business. Failure by these significant customers, suppliers, and financial institutions to addres year 2000 issues could have a material impact on the Company's operations and financial results. However, the potential impact and related costs are not known at this time. ITEM 7. FINANCIAL STATEMENTS See Index to Financial Statements appearing on page F-1 of this Form 10-KSB Annual Report. ITEM 8. CHANGES IN AND DISAGREEMENTS WITH ACCOUNTANTS ON ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE Tanner + Co. of Salt Lake City, Utah has been the independent public accountant for the Company's December 31, 1997 and 1998 financial statements. During the Company's two most recent fiscal years, there were no disagreements between the Company and Tanner + Co. on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure that, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Tanner + Co., would have caused Tanner + Co. to make a reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with its reports on the Company's financial statements. The Company currently engages the independent public accounting firm of Tanner + Co. 16

INDEPENDENT AUDITORS' REPORT To the Board of Directors of Utah Resources International, Inc., and Subsidiaries We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Utah Resources International, Inc., and subsidiaries at December 31, 1998 and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders' equity and cash flows for the two years then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company's management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated 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. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of Utah Resources International, Inc., and subsidiaries as of December 31, 1998 and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the two years ended December 31, 1998, in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. Our audits were made for the purpose of forming an opinion on the basic financial statements taken as a whole. The supplementary information included in the Schedule of Supplementary Information on oil and gas operations is presented for the purposes of additional analysis and is not a required part of the basic financial statements. Such information, except for that portion marked "unaudited," on which we express no opinion, has been subjected to the auditing procedures applied in the audits of the basic financial statements and, in our opinion, is fairly stated in all material respects in relation to the basic financial statements taken as a whole.

UTAH RESOURCES INTERNATIONAL, INC., AND SUBSIDIARIES Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements Continued -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies Continued Marketable Securities The Company classifies its marketable debt and equity securities as "held to maturity" if it has the positive intent and ability to hold the securities to maturity. All other marketable debt and equity securities are classifieds as "available for sale." Securities classified as "available for sale" are carried int he financial statements at fair value. Realized gains and losses, determined using the specific identification method, are included in earnings; unrealized holding gains and losses are reported as a separate component of stockholders' equity. Securities classified as held to maturity are carried at amortized cost. For both categories of securities, declines in fair value below amortized cost that are other than temporary are included in earnings. Real Estate Held for Resale Real estate held for resale includes developed lots, land under development and raw land. Real estate held for resale is carried at the lower of cost or market. The cost of development of building lots includes the land and the related costs of development (planning, survey, engineering and other) which are capitalized. The cost of interest and property taxes are expensed. Property and Equipment Property and equipment is carried at cost. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method based upon useful lives of 3-10 years. Deferred Credits Deferred credits consist of the excess of assets assumed and liabilities relieved over the purchase price of the minority interests of the subsidiaries. In the transactions all tangible assets were written to zero resulting in the remaining amount being recorded as deferred credits. The deferred credits will be amortized over a period of five years. Method of Recognition of Income Real Estate Profits on sale of developed lots, developed land and raw land are recognized in accordance with standards established for the real estate industry which generally provide for deferral of all or part of the profit on a sale if the buyer does not meet certain down payment requirements or certain other tests of the buyer's financial commitment to the purchase, or the seller is required to perform significant obligations subsequent to the sale. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- F-8

UTAH RESOURCES INTERNATIONAL, INC., AND SUBSIDIARIES Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements Continued -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies Continued Method of Recognition of Income - continued Cost of sales include a pro rata portion of acquisition and development costs (including estimated costs to complete) along with sales commissions, closing costs and other costs specifically related to the sale. Other Royalty income is recognized when received. The Company has overriding mineral and oil and gas royalty interests and thus exercises no control over the activities of the royalty payers and is notified of the amounts or royalties due when the cash is received. The Company follows the full-cost accounting method of capitalizing all exploration and development costs including nonproductive drilling expenses, lease abandonments, and other related costs. Under this method of accounting, no gains or losses are recognized from the sale or disposition of properties with insignificant proved oil and gas reserves. If capitalized costs exceed the present value of future net operations, the excess is charged to expense. Income Taxes Deferred income taxes are provided in amounts sufficient to give effect to temporary differences between financial statement and tax reporting purposes. The differences are primarily a result of differing methods of accounting for land sales and depreciation of property and equipment. Earnings Per Share The computation of basic earnings per common share is based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during each year. The computation of diluted earnings per common share is based on the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the year plus the common stock equivalents which would arise from the exercise of stock options and warrants outstanding using the treasury stock method and the average market price per share during the year. Common stock equivalents have not been included as the exercise price is in excess of the market price and the amounts are antidilutive, for the year ended December 31, 1997. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- F-9

UTAH RESOURCES INTERNATIONAL, INC., AND SUBSIDIARIES Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements Continued -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies Continued Concentration of Credit Risk Financial instruments which potentially subject the Company to concentration of credit risk consist primarily of trade receivables. In the normal course of business, the Company provides credit terms to its customers. Accordingly, the Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers and maintains allowances for possible losses which, when Realized, have been within the range of management's expectations. The Company maintains its cash in bank deposit accounts which, at times, may exceed federally insured limits. The Company has not experienced any losses in such account and believes it is not exposed to any significant credit risk on cash and cash equivalents. Use of Estimates in the Preparation of Financial Statements The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles 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 amount of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. 2. Notes Receivable The Company has notes receivable of $271,326 from an individual with interest at 9%. The note is secured by real estate and due when the real estate is sold. 3. Real Estate Held for Resale Real estate held for resale consists of approximately 396 acres of real estate of which approximately 350 acres is currently planned for single family dwelling lots, commercial development and multiple housing in St. George, Utah. The aggregate cost of the raw land and partially developed land is $911,137 at December 31, 1998. 4. Marketable Securities The Company owns 79,752 shares of convertible preferred stock of another company. The ownership is less than 10% of the stock of another company. The Company converted 8,831 shares of preferred stock into common stock which were sold in 1998 for a gain of $4,324. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- F-10
