MANHATTAN BRIDGE CAPITAL , INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
MARCH 31, 2009

1.
THE COMPANY

          The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc. a New York corporation formerly DAG Media, Inc (referred to herein as “Manhattan Bridge Capital” “we”, “us” “our” or the “Company”) included have been prepared by us in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for interim financial information and with instructions to Form 10-Q.  Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by U.S. generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements.  However, in the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for a fair presentation have been included.  The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2008 and the notes thereto included in our Form 10-K.  Results of consolidated operations for the interim period are not necessarily indicative of the operating results to be attained in the entire fiscal year. All material intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.
 
The preparation of consolidated 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 amounts could differ from those estimates.
 
The Company provides short term, secured, non–banking, commercial loans, to small businesses.    In addition, another subsidiary DAG Interactive, Inc. (“DAG Interactive”) has developed innovative software and a related web site that allows retail businesses and other service providers to reach prospective customers and clients for their goods and services in a more effective way than traditional on-line and print yellow pages.
 
DAG Interactive’s roll-out and full scale marketing of Nextyellow continues to await new funding for this operation, preferably at the subsidiary level, or reaching agreement with a marketing partner.
 
The Company applies the provisions of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) No. 104, Revenue Recognition in Financial Statements, which provides guidance on the recognition, presentation and disclosure of revenue in financial statements filed with the SEC. SAB No. 104 outlines the basic criteria that must be met to recognize revenue and provides guidance for disclosure related to revenue recognition policies. In general, the Company recognizes revenue when (i) persuasive evidence of an exchange arrangement exists, (ii) delivery of the product has occurred, (iii) the sales price charged is fixed or determinable, and (iv) collectibility is reasonably assured.
 
Interest income from short and long term commercial loans is recognized, as earned, over the loan period.
 
Origination fee revenue on short term commercial loans is amortized over the term of the respected loan.
 
Marketable securities and the investment in an insurance annuity contract are reported at fair value and are classified as available-for-sale. Unrealized gains and losses from those securities are reported as a separate component of shareholders’ equity, net of the related tax effect. Realized gains and losses are determined on a specific identification basis. None of the assets classified as marketable securities constitute investments in debt securities. Accordingly, no additional disclosure is needed under paragraph 20 of SFAS 115, Accounting for Certain Investments in Debt and Equity Securities.

Effective January 1, 2008, the Company adopted Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Statement No. 157, Fair Value Measurements (“FASB No.157”), which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value under GAAP, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. FASB No. 157 applies to other accounting pronouncements that require or permit fair value measurements . FASB No. 157 clarifies that fair value is an exit price, representing the amount that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants. FASB No.157 also requires disclosure about how fair value is determined for assets and liabilities and establishes a hierarchy for which these assets and liabilities must be grouped, based on significant levels of inputs.
 
SFAS 157 establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. These tiers include: Level 1, defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets; Level 2, defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable; and Level 3, defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions.
 
Cash equivalents and investment instruments are classified within Level 1 or Level 2 of the fair value hierarchy.   Our Level 1 investments are valued using quoted market prices in active markets.   Our Level 2 investments are valued using broker or dealer quotations for similar assets and liabilities.  As of March 31, 2009, our Level 1 investments consisted of cash, money market accounts and marketable securities in the amount of approximately $977,000 and were recorded as cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities in our consolidated balance sheet.
 
On January 8, 2008 and February 11, 2008 we purchased 7 days auction rate securities issued by two different mutual funds in the total amount of $1,175,000. All of the auction rate securities were ultimately redeemed by the mutual funds during 2008. As of March 31, 2009 and December 31, 2008 there were no auction rate securities outstanding.
 
2.
RECENT TECHNICAL ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

In April 2009, the FASB issued three new FASB Staff Positions (FSPs) all of which impact the accounting and disclosure related to certain financial instruments.  FSP FAS 157-4, "Determining Fair Value When the Volume and Level of Activity for the Asset or Liability Have Significantly Decreased and Identifying Transactions That Are Not Orderly" (FSP FAS 157-4) provides additional guidance for estimating fair value in accordance with SFAS 157 when the volume and level of activity for the asset or liability have significantly decreased.  It also includes guidance on identifying circumstances that indicate a transaction is not orderly.  FSP FAS 115-2 and FAS 124-2, "Recognition of Other-Than-Temporary Impairment" (FSP FAS 115-2 and FAS 124-2) amends the other-than-temporary impairment guidance for debt securities to make the guidance more operational and to improve the presentation and disclosure of other-than-temporary impairments on debt and equity securities in the financial statements. 
 
FSP FAS 107-1 and APB 28-1 "Interim Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments" (FSP FAS 107-1 and APB 28-1) amends FASB Statement No. 107 to require disclosures about the fair value of financial instruments on an interim basis in addition to the annual disclosure requirements.  All three FSPs are required to be adopted for interim periods ending after June 15, 2009.  The Company believes that the adoption of SFAS 157-4 will not have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.

In December 2007, the FASB simultaneously issued SFAS No. 141R, “Business Combinations (2007 Amendment),” and SFAS 160, “Noncontrolling Interests in Consolidated Financial Statements, an Amendment of ARB 51.”  Both standards update United States guidance on accounting for “noncontrolling interests,” sometimes referred to as minority interests, which interests represent a portion of a subsidiary not attributable, directly or indirectly, to a parent. FASB and the International Accounting Standards Board (“IASB”) have been working together to promote international convergence of accounting standards. Prior to promulgation of these new standards there were specific areas in accounting for business acquisitions in which conversion was not achieved. The objective of both standards is to improve the relevance, comparability, and transparency of the financial information that a reporting entity provides in “business combinations” and consolidated financial statements by establishing accounting and reporting standards. In business combinations it is accomplished by establishing principles and requirements concerning how an “acquirer” recognizes and measures identifiable assets acquired, liabilities assumed, and noncontrolling interests in the acquiree, as well as goodwill acquired in the combination or gain from a bargain purchase; and determines information to be disclosed to enable users to evaluate the nature and effects of business combinations. In consolidated financial statements the standards require: identification of ownership interests held in subsidiaries by parties other than the parent be clearly identified, labeled and presented in consolidated financial position within equity (rather than “mezzanine” between liabilities and equity) separately from amounts attributed to the parent, with net income attributable to the parent and to the minority interest clearly identified and presented on the face of consolidated statements of income. The standards also provide guidance in situations where the parent’s ownership interest in a subsidiary changes while the parent retains its controlling financial interest. The standard also provides guidance on recording a gain or loss based on fair value in situations involving deconsolidation of a subsidiary. Entities must provide sufficient disclosures that distinguish between interests of the parent and that of the noncontrolling interest. Both standards are effective for fiscal years and interims beginning on or after December 15, 2008 (that is January 1, 2009) for entities with calendar years. Earlier adoption is prohibited. The standards shall be applied prospectively as of the beginning of the fiscal year in which initially applied, except for the presentation and disclosure requirements, which shall be applied retrospectively for all periods presented. The adoption of these standards did not have a material effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
In March 2008, the FASB issued SFAS 161, Disclosures about Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities—an amendment of FASB Statement No. 133. SFAS 161 amends SFAS 133 and changes the disclosure requirements for derivative instruments and hedging activities. Entities are required to provide enhanced disclosures about (a) how and why an entity uses derivative instruments, (b) how derivative instruments and related hedged items are accounted for under Statement 133 and its related interpretations, and (c) how derivative instruments and related hedged items affect an entity’s financial position, financial performance, and cash flows. The Statement is effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years and interim periods beginning after November 15, 2008, with early application encouraged. The adoption of this standard did not have a material effect on our consolidated financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
Management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effected, accounting standards if currently adopted would have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
3.
EARNINGS PER SHARE OF COMMON STOCK
 
We have applied SFAS No. 128, “Earnings Per Share” in our calculation and presentation of earnings per share - “basic” and “diluted”. Basic earnings per share are computed by dividing income available to common shareholders (the numerator) by the weighted average number of common shares (the denominator) for the period.  The computation of diluted earnings per share is similar to basic earnings per share, except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potentially dilutive common shares had been issued. For the three month periods ended March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008, potential dilutive common shares have not been included in the calculation of diluted earnings per share since the effect would be anti-dilutive for all periods presented.

 
8

 
 
The numerator in calculating both basic and diluted earnings per common share for each period is the reported net income.  The denominator is based on the following weighted average number of common shares:

692,000 and 685,000 stock options were not included in the diluted earnings per share calculation for the three month periods ended March 31, 2009 and March 31, 2008, respectively, as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.

4.     STOCK – BASED COMPENSATION

 Effective January 1, 2006, the Company adopted Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 123 (revised 2004), “Share-Based Payment”, (“SFAS 123(R)”) which establishes standards for the accounting for transactions in which an entity exchanges its equity instruments for goods or services. A key provision of this statement is to measure the cost of employee services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments (including stock options) based on the grant-date fair value of the award. The cost will be recognized over the service period during which an employee is required to provide service in exchange for the award (i.e., the requisite service period or vesting period). SFAS 123(R) supersedes the Company’s previous accounting under Accounting Principles Board (“APB”) Opinion No. 25 “Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees” for periods which began in fiscal 2006. We account for equity instruments issued to non employees in accordance with the provisions of SFAS No. 123(R) and Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”) Issue No. 96-18, “Accounting for Equity Instruments That Are Issued to Other Than Employees for Acquiring, or in Conjunction With Selling Goods or Services”. All transactions with non employees, in which goods or services are the consideration received for the issuance of equity instruments are accounted for based on the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of the equity instrument issued, whichever is more appropriately measurable. We adopted SFAS 123(R) using the modified prospective transition method. Under this transition method, compensation cost in 2008 includes cost for options granted prior to but not vested as of December 31, 2005 and vested in 2008. Therefore results for prior periods have not been restated.
 
Share based compensation expense recognized under SFAS 123(R) for the three months ended March 31, 2009 and 2008 were $14,983 and $21,916, respectively.

The exercise price of options granted under our stock option plan may not be less than the fair market value on the date of grant.  The options may vest over a period not to exceed ten years.  Stock options under our stock option plan may be awarded to officers, key-employees, consultants and non-employee directors of the Company.  Under our stock option plan, every non-employee director of the Company is granted 7,000 options upon first taking office, and then 7,000 upon each additional year in office. The objectives of our stock option plan include attracting and retaining key personnel, providing for additional performance incentives and promoting the success of the Company by increasing the efforts of such officers, employees, consultants and directors.  Our stock option plan is the only plan that the Company has adopted with stock options available for grant.
 
The fair value of each option is estimated on the date of grant using Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted-average share assumptions used for grants in 2009 and 2008, respectively: (1) expected life of 5 years; (2) No annual dividend yield; (3) expected volatility 62% to 70%; (4) risk free interest rate of 1.5% to 5.1%.

The weighted-average fair value of each option granted during the three month periods ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, estimated as of the grant date using the Black-Scholes option valuation model, was $0.34 per option and $0.50 per option, respectively.
 
5.    LINES OF CREDIT

During the three months ended March 31, 2008, the Company established two separate lines of credit with Smith Barney.  The first line of credit provides for maximum borrowings in the amount of up to 50% of the value of the Company's marketable securities held by Smith Barney.  This line bears interest at the prime rate minus .75%. During the first quarter of 2008 the Company used $96,271 from this line, which was paid during the second quarter of 2008. At March 31, 2009, $0 is outstanding under this line.  The second line of credit provides for maximum borrowings in the amount of up to 50% of the value of the Company's auction rate securities held by Smith Barney.  This line bears interest at the Federal Funds rate plus .75%. During the first quarter of 2008 the Company used $218,217 from this line, which was paid during the second quarter of 2008. As of December 31, 2008, this line of credit was no longer available since the Company sold the entire auction rate securities held by Smith Barney.

Item 2. 
MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OR PLAN OF OPERATION
 
The following discussion and analysis of our results of operations should be read in conjunction with our unaudited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The discussion and analysis contains forward-looking statements based on current expectations that involve risks and uncertainties.  Actual results and the timing of certain events may differ significantly from those projected in such forward-looking statements .
 
The Company offers short-term secured commercial loans to small businesses.  Loans are secured by collateral such as real estate, receivables, and marketable securities and, generally, accompanied by personal guarantees from the principals of the businesses.  Lending activities commenced on May 15, 2007. The loans are generally for a term of one year. Most of the loans provide for receipt of interest only during the term of the loan and a balloon payment at the end of the term. For the three months ended March 31, 2009 the total amount of $1,785,529 has been lent, offset by collections received from borrowers, under the short term commercial loans in the amount of $1,298,709. Loans ranging in size from $50,000 to $1,020,000 were concluded at stated interest rates of 12% to 16%, but often at higher effective rates based upon points or other up-front fees.  The Company uses its own employees, outside lawyers and other independent professionals to verify titles and ownership, to file liens and to consummate the transactions.   Outside appraisers are also employed to assist the Company’s officials in evaluating the worth of collateral.
 
To date, the Company has not experienced any defaults and none of the loans previously made have been non-collectable, although no assurances can be given that existing or future loans may not go into default or prove to be non-collectable in the future.
 
At March 31, 2009, the Company was committed to an additional $350,000 in construction loans that can be drawn by the borrower when certain conditions are met.
 
In addition, another subsidiary DAG Interactive, Inc. (“DAG Interactive”) has developed innovative software and a related web site that allows retail businesses and other service providers to reach prospective customers and clients for their goods and services in a more effective way than traditional on-line and print yellow pages.
 
DAG Interactive’s roll-out and full scale marketing of Nextyellow continues to await new funding for this operation, preferably at the subsidiary level, or reaching agreement with a marketing partner. Accordingly, the Company wrote off the remainder of capitalized development costs attributed to Nextyellow in 2008 .

Results of Operations

Three Months Ended March 31, 2009 Compared to Three Months Ended March 31, 2008

Total revenue
 
Total revenues for the three month period ended March 31, 2009 were approximately $232,000 compared to approximately $165,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2008 an increase of $67,000 or 41%.   The increase in revenue represents an increase in lending operations since the formation of the lending business (on May 15, 2007). In 2009, $194,000 of the Company’s revenue represents interest income on the short and long term secured commercial loans that the Company offers to small businesses compared to $147,000 for the same period in 2008, and $38,000 represents origination fees on such loans compared to $18,000 for the same period in 2008. Loans are secured by collateral such as real estate, receivables, and marketable securities and generally are accompanied by personal guarantees from the principals of the businesses.
 
Web Development costs
 
Web development costs for the three month periods ended March 31, 2009 and 2008 were $0 and $12,336, respectively. These costs are attributable to the amortization of nextyellow.com capitalized web development costs. The decrease in web development expenses is attributable to the fact that as of December 31, 2008 the Company decided that there is no value to the web development costs and therefore wrote off the remaining amortized balance as of that date.
 
General and administrative costs
 
General and administrative expenses for the three month period ended March 31, 2009 were $133,263 compared to $160,422 for the three month period ended March 31, 2008, representing a decrease of $27,159, or 16.9%.  This decrease is primarily attributable to a decrease in professional fees of approximately $20,000, mainly due to a decrease in legal expenses and accounting expenses, a decrease in compensation expenses of approximately $7,000 mainly due to a decline in the share price in connection with non-cash compensation expenses and a decrease of approximately $6,000 in hosting and maintenance expenses of Nextyellow ’s website, offset by an increase in payroll expenses of approximately $7,000 . We expect our general and administrative expenses to slightly increase as a result of ongoing expenses related to reporting obligations and compliance, such as those mandated by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act.
 
Other income
 
For the three month period ended March 31, 2009 we had other income in the amount of approximately $9,000, which consisted of dividends and interest income, compared to other income of approximately $64,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2008 which consisted of dividends and interest income of approximately $25,000, a referral fee of $29,000 and $10,000 in connection with sale of a listing of potential customers of the Nextyellow website.
 
Income tax (expense) benefit
 
For the three month period ended March 31, 2009 we had income tax expense of approximately $22,000 compared to income tax benefit of approximately $10,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2008.

Discontinued operations
 
On April 20, 2006, the Company sold its remaining directories business for (i) $291,667 paid in cash at closing; (ii) a promissory note in the amount of $613,333 payable in 24 consecutive monthly installments of $25,556 each bearing interest, at 5% per annum; and (iii) the Buyer’s assumption of liabilities relating to the directories business.  The Company has been recording gains on the 2006 sale of the directories business under the installment method in proportion to the payments received. Therefore the Company has recorded gains on this sale in the amount of $0 and $72,917 for the periods ended March 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At March 31, 2009, we had cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities of approximately $977,000 and working capital of approximately $6,926,000 as compared to cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities of approximately $1,384,000 and working capital of $6,663,000 at December 31, 2008. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities primarily reflects the making of short and long term commercial loans in the total amount of $1,786,000, offset by proceeds of collection of these loans in the amount $1,299,000. The increase in working capital is primarily attributable to a long term loan in a prior period becoming due in the current period, offset by an increase in income tax payable.
 
Net cash provided by operating activities was approximately $120,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2009, as compared to approximately $73,000 for the same period in 2008. The increase in net cash provided by operating activities primarily results from the increase in income from continuing operations, an increase in account payable and accrued expenses and increase in income tax payable.
 
Net cash used in investing activities was approximately $487,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2009, compared to net cash used in investing activities of approximately $729,000 for the period ended March 31, 2008. Net cash used in investing activities consisted primarily of the issuance of the Company’s short term commercial loans in the amount of $1,786,000, offset by collection of these loans in the amount of $1,299,000. In the period ended March 31, 2008 net cash used in investing activities consisted primarily of the issuance of the Company’s short term commercial loans in the amount of $957,000, offset by collection of these loans in the amount of $1,330,000, the investment in an insurance annuity contract in the amount of $1,175,000 and installment payments received in connection with the 2006 sale of the directories business in the amount of $73,000.
 
Net cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2009 was $0 as compared to $314,000 for the period ended March 31, 2008. Net cash provided by financing activities in the period ended March 31, 2008 reflects the use of the Company’s credit line.
 
We have not entered into any off-balance sheet transactions, arrangements or other relationships with unconsolidated entities or other persons that are likely to affect liquidity or the availability of or requirements for capital resources.
 
We anticipate that our current cash balances will be sufficient to fund our operations and the maintenance of our web sites for the next 12 months.  However, we expect our working capital requirements to increase over the next 12 months as we continue to strive for growth.
