BACKGROUND

 

1. Organizational History

 

Kiwa Bio-Tech Products Group Corporation (“the Company”) is the result of a share exchange transaction accomplished on March 12, 2004 between the shareholders of Kiwa Bio-Tech Products Group Ltd. (“Kiwa BVI”), a company originally organized under the laws of the British Virgin Islands on June 5, 2002 and Tintic Gold Mining Company (“Tintic”), a corporation originally incorporated in the state of Utah on June 14, 1933 to perform mining operations in Utah. The share exchange resulted in a change of control of Tintic, with former Kiwa BVI stockholders owning approximately 89% of Tintic on a fully diluted basis and Kiwa BVI surviving as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Tintic. Subsequent to the share exchange transaction, Tintic changed its name to Kiwa Bio-Tech Products Group Corporation. On July 21, 2004, the Company completed its reincorporation in the State of Delaware. On March 8, 2017, the Company completed its reincorporation in the State of Nevada.

 

The Company operates through a series of subsidiaries in the Peoples Republic of China. The Company currently mainly operates its business through Kiwa Baiao Bio-Tech (Beijing) Co., Ltd. (“Kiwa Beijing”), which was incorporated in China in January 2016, Kiwa Bio-Tech Products (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. (“Kiwa Shenzhen”), which was incorporated in China in November 2016, Kiwa Bio-Tech Products (Hebei) Co., Ltd. (“Kiwa Hebei”), which was incorporated in China in December 2016, Kiwa Bio-Tech Products (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. Xian Branch Company, (“Kiwa Xian”), which was incorporated in China in December 2017, Kiwa Bio-Tech (Yangling) Co., Ltd. (“Kiwa Yangling”), which incorporated in March 2018, and The Institute of Kiwa-Yangling Ecological Agriculture and Environment Research Co., Ltd. (“Kiwa Institute”), which incorporated in March 2018. In July 2017, the Company established Kiwa Bio-Tech Asia Holding (Shenzhen) Ltd. (“Kiwa Asia”) to be the direct holding company of Kiwa Beijing, Kiwa Shenzhen, Kiwa Xian, Kiwa Institue and Kiwa Hebei.

 

   

 

 

2. Overview of Business

 

We develop, manufacture, distribute and market innovative, cost-effective and environmentally safe bio-technological products for agriculture. Our products are designed to enhance the quality of human life by increasing the value, quality and productivity of crops and decreasing the negative environmental impact of chemicals and other wastes.

 

Our Products

 

We have developed three bio-fertilizer products with bacillus species (“bacillus spp”) and/or photosynthetic bacteria as core ingredients. For the year ended December 31, 2018, we are currently generating revenues from our four bio-fertilizer products: 1) Biological Organic Fertilizer; 2) Compound Microbial Fertilizer; 3) Bio-Water Soluble Fertilizer; 4) Microbial Inoculum Fertilizer.

 

Some of our products contain ingredients of both photosynthesis and bacillus bacteria. Bacillus spp is a species of bacteria that interacts with plants and promotes biological processes. It is highly effective for promoting plant growth, enhancing yield, improving quality and elevating resistances. Photosynthetic bacteria are a group of green and purple bacteria. Bacterial photosynthesis differs from green plant photosynthesis in that bacterial photosynthesis occurs in an anaerobic environment and does not produce oxygen. Photosynthetic bacteria can enhance the photosynthetic capacity of green plants by increasing the utilization of sunlight, which helps keep the photosynthetic process at a vigorous level, enhances the capacity of plants to transform inorganic materials to organic products, and boosts overall plant health and productivity.

 

Biological Fertilizer provides beneficial living microorganisms and micronutrition to soil and improve plants absorptivity of main growth ingredients. Proper use could prevent soil-borne, crops disease, improve soil fertility, alleviate agricultural pollution and degrade heavy metal in farmland soil.

 

Compound Microbial Fertilizer is adding appropriate amount of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and other nutrients into Biological Organic Fertilizer. Through the action of organic matter and beneficial microorganisms, the utilization rate of nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium can be significantly improved.

 

The Bio-Water Soluble Fertilizer is mainly another form of the biological fertilizer that we firstly introduced in the first quarter of 2018. It is in the form of powder which has high water solubility, and it is convenient for the farmers to use during the drop irrigation.

 

Microbial Inoculum Fertilizer is an environment-friendly biological soil conditioner that made of compound high-silicon, calcium, and mineral raw materials, on the basis of dissolving-phosphorus, dissolving-potassium, and disease-resistant microbial agents. It is rich in highly active microorganisms, which can improve the micro-ecological environment in the soil, transform and reduce heavy metal toxicity, release the plant growth stimulants, promote crop growth, and enhance the stress resistance.

 

Compound Microbial Fertilizer, Bio-Water Soluble Fertilizer, and Microbial Inoculum Fertilizer generally contain more microorganism and have a higher effectiveness on the productivity of crops and increasing the value and quality of the crops harvested than Biological Organic Fertilizer. As a result, our Compound Microbial Fertilizer, Bio-Water Soluble Fertilizer, and Microbial Inoculum Fertilizer generally have a higher average selling price as compared to Biological Organic Fertilizer.

 

   

 

 

The Board of Directors believes that the proposed increase in authorized shares of Common Stock is beneficial to the Company because it provides the Company with the flexibility it needs to raise additional capital consistent with its Business Plan.

 

No further action on the part of stockholders will be required to either implement or abandon the increase in authorized capital. The Board of Directors reserves its right to elect not to proceed, and abandon, the increase in authorized capital if it determines, in its sole discretion, that this proposal is no longer in the best interests of the Company’s shareholders.

 

ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF INCREASING AUTHORIZED COMMON STOCK

 

There are certain advantages and disadvantages of increasing the Company’s authorized common stock. The Company believes that the impact of increasing its authorized capital is largely mitigated by increased ability of the Company to raise capital for the future growth of the Company consistent with its Business Plan. As a result of the increase in authorized capital, authorized but unissued Company Common Shares are increased from approximately 80,500,000 to 280,500,000. The current number of authorized but unissued shares does not include shares which are reserved for issuance in the event of the exercise of certain warrants and options which required to be reserved.

 

The Company believes that this increased number of authorized but unissued Common Shares will facilitate:

 

  The ability to raise capital by issuing capital stock under future financing transactions, if any, and compliance with the applicable covenants of existing financing.
     
  To have shares of common stock available to pursue business expansion opportunities, if any.
     
  The issuance of authorized but unissued stock could be used to deter a potential takeover of the Company that may otherwise be beneficial to shareholders by diluting the shares held by a potential suitor or issuing shares to a shareholder that will vote in accordance with the desires of the Company’s Board of Directors, at that time. Notwithstanding, a takeover may be beneficial to independent shareholders because, among other reasons, a potential suitor may offer Company shareholders a premium for their shares of stock compared to the then-existing market price. The Company does not have any plans or Proposal to adopt such provisions or enter into agreements that may have material anti-takeover consequences.

 

Disadvantages of this action include the following:

 

  The issuance of additional authorized but unissued shares of Common Stock could result in decreased net income per share which could result in dilution to existing shareholders.
     
  In the long run, the Company may be limiting the number of authorized but unissued shares it can issue in the future without a further amendment of its Articles of Incorporation. Notwithstanding, the Company believes that maintaining 280,500,000 authorized but unissued Common shares will cover all of its reasonably foreseeable requirements.
