NOTE 1 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
Nature of Business
Ameri Metro, Inc. (“Ameri Metro” and the “Company”) was formed to engage primarily in high-speed rail for passenger and freight transportation and related transportation projects. The Company initially intends to develop a Midwest high-speed rail system for passengers and freight.
The Company’s activities are subject to significant risks and uncertainties including failure to secure additional funding to properly execute the company’s business plan.
The following transactions
changed the corporate operating structure of the Company since February 2020:
On February 18, 2020, the Company issued 3,230,520 shares of Class C common stock to acquire 2% of Susquehanna Mortgage Bankers Corp. (formerly Global Infrastructure SP Bankers). On April 28, 2020, by consent of the Company’s Board of directors, the Company agree to issue 23,000,000 shares of Original Class C common stock to acquire an additional 23% in Susquehanna Mortgage Bankers Corp. The intent is to become a licensed Commercial & Residential lender, an entity supervised by the State banking commission. Once licensed, it will then apply for a Fintech mortgage lender with the U.S. Office of Currency Control to become a licensed lender under the U.S. Federal Reserve system. On September 18, 2020, the Company issued 23,000,000 shares of Original Class C common stock to Susquehanna Mortgage Bankers.
On April 28, 2020, by consent of the Company’s Board of directors, the Company agreed to issue 23,000,000 shares of the Original Class C common stock to acquire 25% ownership interest in Ann Charles International Airport.

Basis of Presentation
The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) for interim financial information, the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 8 of Regulation S-X, and should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto contained in the Company’s consolidated financial statements filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on Form 10-K. In the opinion of management, all adjustments, consisting of normal recurring adjustments, necessary for the unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements to be not misleading have been reflected herein. The results of operations for interim periods are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year. The unaudited interim condensed consolidated statements do not include all of the information and notes required by U.S. GAAP for complete financial statements. Notes to the consolidated financial statements which would substantially duplicate the disclosure contained in the audited consolidated financial statements for the most recent fiscal year 2020 as reported in Form 10-K, have been omitted.
Principles of Consolidation
The consolidated financial statements present the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for Ameri Metro and its wholly-owned subsidiary, Global Transportation & Infrastructure, Inc. (“GTI”). Intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.
The financial position, results of operations and cash flows as of, and for the period reported include the results of operations for Ameri Metro and GTI.
Participating Profits Interest
As at January 31, 2021, the Company has a 25% participating profits interest in nineteen related entities and a 10% participating profit in one other entity. The remaining participating profits interest (and 100% voting control) is owned by the Company’s majority shareholder. These entities have had no operations, assets, or liabilities, and as of January 31, 2021, the Company’s participating profits interest in these companies was $0.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP 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 amounts of revenues and expenses during the year. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on other assumptions considered to be reasonable under the circumstances. However, actual results may differ from the estimates.
Income (Loss) Per Share
Basic loss per share is calculated by dividing the Company’s net loss applicable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares during the period. Diluted earnings per share is calculated by dividing the Company’s net income available to common shareholders by the diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding during the period. The diluted weighted average number of shares outstanding is the basic weighted number of shares adjusted for any potentially dilutive debt or equity. Due to loss for the period ended January 31, 2021 and 2020, the outstanding options are anti-dilutive. As a result, the computations of net loss per common shares is the same for both basic and fully diluted common stock. Potentially dilutive securities, which includes 10,890,000 stock options as at January 31, 2021 and 2020, have been excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share because the effect of their inclusion would have been antidilutive.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In December 2019, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2019-12, “Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes”. The pronouncement simplifies the accounting for income taxes by removing certain exceptions to the general principles in ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes”. The pronouncement also improves consistent application of and simplifies GAAP for other areas of Topic 740 by clarifying and amending existing guidance. ASU 2019-12 will be effective for us beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2021, with early adoption permitted. We have evaluated the impact of the new FASB standard and determine that it will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.
