MANHATTAN BRIDGE CAPITAL , INC.
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
MARCH 31, 2010

1.           THE COMPANY

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements of Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc., a New York corporation, (referred to herein as “Manhattan Bridge Capital” “we”, “us” “our” or “the Company”) have been prepared by  the Company 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 the Company’s audited consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2009 and the notes thereto included in the Company’s 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.    
 
The Company recognizes revenues in accordance with ASC 605, which provides guidance on the recognition, presentation and disclosure of revenue in financial statements. ASC 605 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 arrangement exists, (ii) delivery of the product has occurred or services have been rendered, (iii) the sales price charged is fixed or determinable, and (iv) collectibility is reasonably assured.
 
Interest income from short 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 respective note.
 
   Marketable securities 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. Additionally, the   Company assesses whether an other-than-temporary impairment loss on the investments has occurred due to declines in fair value or other market conditions. Declines in fair value that are considered other than temporary, if any, are recorded as charges in the Consolidated Statements of Operations. The Company did not record an impairment loss on marketable securities for the three month periods ended March 31, 2010 and 2009.

Effective January 1, 2008, the Company adopted the ASC 820, Fair Value Measurements, which defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. ASC 820-10 establishes a three-level fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs used to measure fair value. This hierarchy requires entities to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs. The three levels of inputs used to measure fair value are as follows:
 
Level 1—Quoted prices in active markets.
 
Level 2—Observable inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable.
 
Level 3—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.   The Company’s Level 1 investments are valued using quoted market prices in active markets.   The Company’s Level 2 investments are valued using broker or dealer quotations for similar assets and liabilities.   As of March 31, 2010 and 2009 the Company’s Level 1 investments consisted of cash, money market accounts and marketable securities in the amount of approximately $284,000 and $1,112,000, respectively, and were recorded as cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets.
 
We have evaluated subsequent events and transactions for potential recognition or disclosure in the financial statements through May 5, 2010, the day the financial statements were issued.
 
2.           RECENT TECHNICAL ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

In June 2009, the FASB issued “The FASB Accounting Standards Codification and Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles” under ASC 105. ASC 105 establishes the FASB Standards Accounting Codification as the source of authoritative U.S. generally accepted accounting principles recognized by the FASB to be applied to nongovernmental entities and rules and interpretive releases of the SEC as authoritative GAAP for SEC registrants. The Codification supersedes all the existing non-SEC accounting and reporting standards upon its effective date and subsequently, the FASB will not issue new standards in the form of Statements, FASB Staff Positions or Emerging Issues Task Force Abstracts. The adoption of this new standard did not have a material effect on the Company’s disclosures of the consolidated financial statements.
 
In August 2009, the FASB issued an update to ASC 820. This Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2009-5, Measuring Liabilities at Fair Value (“ASU 2009-5”) amends the provisions in ASC 820 related to the fair value measurement of liabilities and clarifies for circumstances in which a quoted price in an active market for the identical liability is not available. ASU 2009-5 is intended to reduce potential ambiguity in financial reporting when measuring the fair value of liabilities. ASU 2009-5 is effective for the Company in the first quarter of fiscal year 2010. ASU 2009-5 concerns disclosure only. The adoption of ASU 2009-5 did not have a material effect on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
7

 
In December 2009, the FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2009-17, which codifies SFAS No. 167, Amendments to FASB Interpretation No. 46(R) issued in June 2009. ASU 2009-17 requires a qualitative approach to identifying a controlling financial interest in a variable interest entity (“VIE”), and requires ongoing assessment of whether an entity is a VIE and whether an interest in a VIE makes the holder the primary beneficiary of the VIE. ASU 2009-17 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after November 15, 2009. The Company believes that the adoption of ASU 2009-17 did not have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.
 
In January 2010, the FASB issued ASU 2010-6, Improving Disclosures About Fair Value Measurements, which requires reporting entities to make new disclosures about recurring or nonrecurring fair-value measurements including significant transfers into and out of Level 1 and Level 2 fair-value measurements and information on purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements on a gross basis in the reconciliation of Level 3 fair- value measurements. ASU 2010-6 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2009, except for Level 3 reconciliation disclosures which are effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2010. The Company believes that the adoption of ASU 2010-6 will not have a material effect on its consolidated financial statements.
 
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.           SHORT TERM COMMERCIAL LOANS
 
At March 31, 2010, we were committed to an additional $1,257,000 in construction loans that can be drawn by the borrower when certain conditions are met.
 
At March 31, 2010, the Company had made loans to four borrowers in the aggregate amount of $1,590,000. One individual holds a fifty percent interest in each of the borrowers. The individual has no relationship to any of the officers or directors of the Company.
 
4.           EARNINGS PER SHARE OF COMMON STOCK
 
     Basic and diluted earnings per share are calculated in accordance with ASC 260 “Earnings Per Share”. Under ASC 260, basic earnings per share is computed by dividing income available to common shareholders by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding 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 potential dilution from the exercise of stock options and warrants for common shares using the treasury stock method. 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:
 
   
Three Months Ended

561,887 and 569,329 stock options were not included in the diluted earnings per share calculation for the three month periods ended March 31, 2010 and March 31, 2009, respectively, as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.
 
5.     STOCK – BASED COMPENSATION

The Company measures and recognizes compensation awards for all stock option grants made to employees and directors, based on their fair value in accordance with ASC 718 “Compensation- Stock Compensation”, 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). The Company accounts for equity instruments issued to non-employees in accordance with the provisions of ASC 718 and ASC 505-50, “Equity Based Payment to Non-Employees”. 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.
 
Share based compensation expense recognized under ASC 718 for the three month periods ended March 31, 2010 and 2009 were $9,608 and $14,983, 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 the Black-Scholes option-pricing model with the following weighted-average share assumptions used for grants in 2010 and 2009, 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%.

    602,667     $ 1.64       2.24     $ 522,783  

The weighted-average fair value of each option granted during the three month periods ended March 31, 2010 and 2009, estimated as of the grant date using the Black-Scholes option valuation model, was $0.77 per option and $0.34 per option, respectively.
 
6.    LINES OF CREDIT

The Company established a line of credit with Smith Barney.  The 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%. As of March 31, 2010, $158,434 is outstanding under this line.
 
In addition in 2009 the Company established a line of credit with Valley National Bank. The line of credit provides for maximum borrowings in the amount of up to $300,000, the line bears fixed interest at the rate of 9%. As of March 31, 2010, $300,000 is outstanding under this line.

Item 2.   MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
 
The following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and 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 .
 
We offer 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. 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 month periods ended March 31, 2010 and 2009 the total amounts of $2,149,000 and $1,785,529, respectively, have been lent, offset by collections received from borrowers, under the short term commercial loans in the amounts of $743,921 and $1,298,709, respectively. 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. We use our 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 our officials in evaluating the worth of collateral.
 
To date, we have 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, 2010, we were committed to an additional $1,257,000 in construction loans that can be drawn by the borrower when certain conditions are met.
 
Results of Operations

Three Months Ended March 31, 2010 Compared to Three Months Ended March 31, 2009

Total revenue
 
Total revenues for the three month period ended March 31, 2010 were approximately $291,000 compared to approximately $232,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2009 an increase of $59,000 or 25%.   The increase in revenue represents an increase in lending operations. In 2010, $236,000 of our revenue represents interest income on the short term secured commercial loans that we offer to small businesses compared to $194,000 for the same period in 2009, and $55,000 represents origination fees on such loans compared to $38,000 for the same period in 2009. 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.
 
Interest expense on lines of credit used
 
Interest expense on lines of credit used for the three month period ended March 31, 2010 was $5,134 compared to $0 for the three month period ended March 31, 2009. The increase in interest expense is due to use of the two lines of credit we established (See note 6) in order to increase our ability to make loans.

General and administrative expenses for the three month period ended March 31, 2010 were approximately $142,000 compared to approximately $133,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2009, an increase of $9,000, or 7%.  This increase is primarily attributable to an increase in payroll expense of approximately $10,000 and an increase in insurance expenses of approximately $4,000, offset by a decrease in non-cash compensation expenses of approximately $5,000 mainly due to a decrease in the number of options granted.
 
Other income
 
For the three month period ended March 31, 2010 we had other income in the amount of approximately $59,000, which consisted of realized gain on the sale of marketable securities in the amount of $55,000 and dividend and interest income of $3,000, compared to other income of approximately $9,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2009, which consisted of dividend and interest income.
 
Income tax expense
 
For the three month period ended March 31, 2010 we had income tax expense of approximately $62,000 compared to approximately $22,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2009.
 
Liquidity and Capital Resources

At March 31, 2010, we had cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities of approximately $284,000 and working capital of approximately $7,460,000 as compared to cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities of approximately $1,112,000 and working capital of $7,332,000 at December 31, 2009. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents and marketable securities primarily reflects the making of short term commercial loans in the total amount of $2,149,000, offset by proceeds of collection of these loans in the amount $744,000 and the use of lines of credit in the amount of $458,000. The increase in working capital is primarily attributable to the net income of approximately $141,000.
 
Net cash provided by operating activities was approximately $87,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2010, as compared to approximately $120,000 for the same period in 2009. The decrease in net cash provided by operating activities primarily results from the decrease in income tax payable, offset by an increase in account payable and accrued expenses.
 
Net cash used in investing activities was approximately $1,142,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2010, compared to approximately $487,000 for the period ended March 31, 2009. Net cash used in investing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2010 consisted primarily of the Company’s short term commercial loans made in the amount of $2,149,000, offset by collection of these loans in the amount of $744,000 and the proceeds from the sale of marketable securities in the amount of $263,000. In the period ended March 31, 2009 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.
 
Net cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2010 was $458,000 compared to $0 for the same period in 2009. Net cash provided by financing activities in the period ended March 31, 2010 reflects the use of the Company’s credit lines.

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 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.
 
Changes to Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

Our critical accounting polices and estimates are set forth in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009.
