As previously reported, the Company sold its operation subsidiary Monexa Services Inc on March 31, 2012.   IFRS 5 accounting procedures for Non-Current Assets held for Sale and Discontinued Operations requires the subsidiary operating revenue and expenses that were sold to be netted (Revenue less Direct costs less Operating expenses) and this net operating loss for the quarter to be reflected in a single line item "Discontinued Operations" within the Consolidated Statements of Loss and Comprehensive Loss. Accordingly the revenue generated, direct costs incurred and operating costs incurred by the operating subsidiary are not reflected in the normal manner within the financial statements.   The operating costs as reported are those of Santa Rosa Resources Corp.

David Roberts, President and CEO said, "At the recent Annual General Meeting shareholders approved a 10 for 1 stock consolidation.  We believe that this change will make it easier for the Company to pursue new business opportunities.  Currently there is less activity in the junior capital market than in recent years so we are taking steps to conserve the Company's cash."

Garth Albright, CFO said "We have reduced operating expenditures to conserve cash while ensuring the Company continues to comply with all of its regulatory and filing requirements".
