MANHATTAN BRIDGE CAPITAL, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
MARCH 31, 2011

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”, “MBC”, “us” or “our” 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, 2010 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.
 
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 consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Manhattan Bridge Capital, Inc., its wholly-owned subsidiary DAG Funding Solutions, Inc.(“DAG Funding”), its wholly-owned subsidiary    MBC Funding I, Inc. (“MBC Funding”) and its wholly-owned subsidiary 1490-1496 Hicks LLC.(“1490-1496 Hicks”) which was formed in the first quarter of 2011 (collectively referred to herein as the “Company”). All material intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.
 
The Company provides short term secured non–banking commercial loans, to real estate investors (also known as hard money) to fund their acquisition and construction of properties located in the New York Metropolitan area.
 
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.
 
Costs incurred in connection with the Company’s senior secured notes are being amortized over the term of the notes using the straight-line method.

Effective January 1, 2008, the Company adopted 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.   As of March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010 the Company’s Level 1 investments consisted of cash and money market accounts in the amount of approximately $233,000 and $386,000, respectively, and were recorded as cash and cash equivalents in the Company’s consolidated balance sheets.

RECENT TECHNICAL ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

In February 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-9 as an amendment to ASC 855. This update eliminates the requirement to provide a specific date through which subsequent events were evaluated. This update was issued to alleviate potential conflicts between ASC 855 and SEC reporting requirements. The update was effective upon issuance and has no impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
In July 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-20, entitled “Disclosures about the Credit Quality of Financing Receivables and the Allowance for Credit Losses,” which is effective for public entities interim and annual financial statements ending after December 15, 2010. The objective of this amended guidance is for an entity to provide disclosures that facilitate financial statement users’ evaluation of; the nature of credit risk inherent in the entities portfolio of financing receivables; how risk is analyzed and assessed in arriving at the allowance for credit losses; and the changes and reasons for those changes in the allowance for credit losses. Existing guidance has been amended to provide enhanced disaggregated disclosures in situations involving impairments or troubled loan restructurings, with the guidance for trouble debt restructuring disclosures delayed pursuant to ASU 2011-01. Company disclosures herein are based on the Company’s adoption of ASU 2010-20, and providing disclosures there under that apply to its short term loan portfolio in the current circumstances.
 
In April 2011, FASB issued ASU 2011-02, "Receivables (Topic 310): A Creditor's Determination of Whether a Restructuring Is a Troubled Debt Restructuring." ASU 2011-02 provides amendments to Topic 310 to clarify which loan modifications constitute troubled debt restructurings. It is intended to assist creditors in determining whether a modification of the terms of a receivable meets the criteria to be considered a troubled debt restructuring, both for purposes of recording an impairment loss and for disclosure of troubled debt restructurings. For public companies, the new guidance is effective for interim and annual periods beginning on or after June 15, 2011, and applies retrospectively to restructurings occurring on or after the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption. Early adoption is permitted. The Company believes that the adoption of ASU No. 2011-02 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, 2011, we were committed to an additional $1,538,700 in construction loans that can be drawn by the borrower when certain conditions are met.
 
Some of the loans in the Company’s portfolio at March 31, 2011, were jointly funded by the Company and unrelated entities, for aggregate loans of $1,860,600. The accompanying balance sheet includes the Company’s portion of the loan in the amount of $930,300.
 
At March 31, 2011, the Company had made loans to five borrowers in the aggregate amount of $1,349,000. One individual holds a fifty percent interest in each of the borrowers. The Company also had made loans to three borrowers in the aggregate amount of $942,000. One individual holds one hundred percent interest in each of the borrowers. Both individuals have no relationship to any of the officers or directors of the Company.
 
The Company generally grants loans for a term of one year.  In certain situations the Company and its borrowers have mutually agreed to the extension of the loans as a result of the downturn in the economy and the real estate industry in the New York metropolitan area. Potential buyers of the real estate serving as collateral for the short-term loans may have difficulty securing financing due to restrictions imposed by financial institutions resulting from the recent mortgage crisis. In addition, the Company’s borrowers may be having difficulty securing permanent financing.  Prior to the Company granting an extension of any loan, it reevaluates the underlying collateral. At March 31, 2011, the Company’s short-term loans include loans in the amount of $250,000, $560,000, $3,315,200, and $510,000, originally due in 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011, respectively. In all instances the borrowers are currently paying their interest and, generally, the Company receives a fee in connection with the extension of the loans.  Accordingly, at March 31, 2011, no loan impairments exist and there are no provisions for impairments of loans or recoveries thereof included in operations. Subsequent to the balance sheet date approximately $300,000 of the extended loans outstanding at March 31, 2011 have been paid off.

INVESTMENT IN REAL ESTATE
 
On March 21, 2011, the Company purchased three 2-family buildings located in the Bronx, New York for $675,000, including related costs, and sold to the seller a one year option to buy back the properties. The buy back option was sold for $3,900, plus a monthly fee of $10,530 payable to the Company by the option holder for the life of the option. We believe that the option holder will exercise the buy back option within the next 3 to 12 months.
 
5. 
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

Basic
    3,324,459       3,324,459  
Incremental shares for assumed conversion of options
    71,366       40,780  
Diluted
    3,395,825       3,365,239  

436,967 and 561,887 stock options were not included in the diluted earnings per share calculation for the three month periods ended March 31, 2011 and March 31, 2010, respectively, as their effect would have been anti-dilutive.
 
6. 
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.

 
8

 
 
Share based compensation expense recognized under ASC 718 for the three month periods ended March 31, 2011 and 2010 were $11,250 and $9,608, 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 2011 and 2010, respectively: (1) expected life of 5 years; (2) No annual dividend yield; (3) expected volatility 62% to 73.2%; (4) risk free interest rate of 1.5% to 5.1%.

    508,333     $ 1.19       2.70     $ 313,225  

The weighted-average fair value of each option granted during the three month periods ended March 31, 2011 and 2010, estimated as of the grant date using the Black-Scholes option valuation model, was $0.85 per option and $0.77 per option, respectively.
 
7. 
LOANS AND LINE OF CREDIT

In September 2009 the Company established a secured line of credit with Valley National Bank. The line of credit provides for maximum borrowings in the amount of up to $300,000, which may be prepaid by the Company at any time without penalty. The line requires monthly payments of interest only at the rate of 9%, per annum, with borrowings still outstanding due in October, 2012. Pursuant to a security agreement, the line of credit is secured by the Company’s short term loans. As of both March 31, 2011 and December 31, 2010, $300,000 is outstanding under this line.

In March 2011, the Company received three separate short-term loans from three different entities, in the aggregate amount of $603,845, bearing interest at rates ranging from  8% to 14%, per annum.. In April 18, 2011, one of the loans in the amount of $170,000 was repaid in full by the Company. Two of the short-term loans are secured by the Company’s short term loans, pursuant to a security agreement and one of the loans is also personally guaranteed by our CEO.

SENIOR SECURED NOTES

On December 28, 2010, MBC Funding completed a $500,000 private placement of three-year 6.63% senior secured notes. In connection therewith, MBC assigned approximately $750,000 of its short-term loans to MBC Funding to use as collateral for the notes. Pursuant to the agreement, MBC has also guaranteed the repayment of the notes. The notes require quarterly payments of interest only through the expiration date in December, 2013, at which time the notes become due. The private placement was the initial tranche of a $5,000,000 offering which expired on March 31, 2011.
 
Financing costs incurred in connection with the agreement totaled $109,183, including five year warrants (the “warrants”) to purchase 20,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock issued to the underwriter at $2.50 per share, which were valued at $11,683. These costs are amortized over the life of the senior secured notes. The amortization costs for the three month period ended March 31, 2011 were $9,099.

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, non–banking loans to real estate investors (also known as hard money) to fund their acquisition and construction of properties located in the New York Metropolitan area. The loans are principally secured by collateral consisting of real estate 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, 2011 and 2010 the total amounts of $1,275,129 and $2,149,000, respectively, have been lent, offset by collections received from borrowers, under the short term commercial loans in the amounts of $1,158,000 and $743,921, respectively. Loans ranging in size from $50,000 to $900,000 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 used to assist the Company’s officials in evaluating the worth of collateral.
 
The Company generally grants loans for a term of one year.  In certain situations the Company and its borrowers have mutually agreed to the extension of the loans as a result of the downturn in the economy and the real estate industry in the New York metropolitan area. Potential buyers of the real estate serving as collateral for the short-term loans may have difficulty securing financing due to restrictions imposed by financial institutions resulting from the recent mortgage crisis. In addition, the Company’s borrowers may be having difficulty securing permanent financing.  Prior to the Company granting an extension of any loan, it reevaluates the underlying 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, 2011, we were committed to an additional $1,538,700 in construction loans that can be drawn by the borrower when certain conditions are met.

Results of Operations

Three Months Ended March 31, 2011 Compared to Three Months Ended March 31, 2010

Total revenue
 
Total revenues for the three month period ended March 31, 2011 were approximately $339,000 compared to approximately $291,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2010 an increase of $48,000 or 16.5%.  The increase in revenue represents an increase in lending operations. In 2011, $282,000 of our revenue represents interest income on the short term secured commercial loans that we offer to small businesses compared to $236,000 for the same period in 2010, and $56,000 represents origination fees on such loans compared to $55,000 for the same period in 2010. The loans are principally secured by collateral consisting of real estate and, generally, accompanied by personal guarantees from the principals of the businesses.
 
Interest expense
 
Interest expense on loans, the line of credit and senior secured notes for the three month period ended March 31, 2011 was $16,676 compared to $5,134 for the three month period ended March 31, 2010. The increase in interest expense is primarily attributable to the issuance of senior secured notes, the line of credit and short term loans. (See notes 7 and 8 to the consolidated financial statements   which appear elsewhere in this quarterly report) in order to increase our ability to make loans.
 
General and administrative costs
 
General and administrative expenses for the three month period ended March 31, 2011 were approximately $187,000 compared to approximately $142,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2010, an increase of $45,000, or 31.7%, this increase is primarily attributable to an increase in payroll expenses due to restoration of our CEO’s salary in June 2010 and the amortization of the deferred financing costs.
 
Other income
 
For the three month period ended March 31, 2011 we had other income in the amount of approximately $7,000, which represents fees from the sale of a buy back option to the seller of certain real property we purchased in March 2011 (See note 4 to the consolidated financial statements which appear elsewhere in this quarterly report), compared to other income of approximately $59,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2010, which consisted of realized gain on the sale of marketable securities that were previously marked down in the amount of $55,000 and dividend and interest income of $3,000.
 
Income tax expense
 
For each of the three month periods ended March 31, 2011 and 2010, we had income tax expense of $62,000.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

At March 31, 2011, we had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $233,000 and working capital of approximately $7,461,000 as compared to cash and cash equivalents of approximately $386,000 and working capital of $8,034,000 at December 31, 2010. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents primarily reflects the making of short term commercial loans in the total amount of approximately $1,275,000, offset by collections received from borrowers in the amount approximately $1,158,000 and our investment in real estate in the amount of $675,000, offset by the loans we took in March, 2011, in the amount of approximately $604,000. The decrease in working capital is primarily attributable to the investment in real estate in the amount of $675,000..
 
Net cash provided by operating activities was approximately $35,000 for the three month period ended March 31, 2011, as compared to approximately $87,000 for the same period in 2010. Net cash provided by operating activities for the three months period ended March 31, 2011 consisted primarily of net income of approximately $81,000, amortization of the deferred financing costs of approximately $9,000 and non cash compensation expenses of approximately $11,000, offset by a decrease in income tax payable of approximately $38,000, an increase in interest receivable on short term commercial loans of approximately $21,000 and an increase in other current assets of approximately $16,000. In the period ended March 31, 2010 net cash provided by operating activities consisted primarily of net income of approximately $141,000, an increase in account payable and accrued expenses of approximately $32,000, a decrease in other current assets of approximately $10,000 and non cash compensation expenses of approximately $10,000, offset by a realized gain on marketable securities that were previously marked down of approximately $55,000 a decrease in income tax payable of approximately $38,000 and a decrease in deferred origination fees of approximately $12,000.
 
Net cash used in investing activities was approximately $792,000 for the three months period ended March 31, 2011, compared to approximately $1,142,000 for the same period in 2010. Net cash used in investing activities for the three months period ended March 31, 2011 consisted primarily of   an investment in real estate in the amount of $675,000 and short term commercial loans made in the amount of $1,275,000, offset by collection of these loans in the amount of $1,158,000. In the period ended March 31, 2010 net cash used in investing activities consisted primarily of the 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.
 
Net cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $604,000 compared to $458,000 for the same period in 2010. Net cash provided by financing activities for the three months ended March 31, 2011 reflects the loans received in March 2011. In the period ended March 31, 2010 net cash provided by financing activities reflects the use of our 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.
