Impact of Coronavirus Outbreak

 

In December 2019, a novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) was reported, and the World Health Organization declared the outbreak to constitute a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern.” The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted the Company to focus on developing epidemic related products to pursue new business opportunities such as integrating the Company’s security platform and epidemic prevention system for schools and public communities for epidemic prevention. In April 2020, the Company resumed normal workflow. Since April 2020, while some new COVID-19 cases were discovered in a few provinces of China including Beijing, the number of new cases is no longer significant as a result of strict control measures enacted by PRC government. Based on available information, management of the Company does not believe that COVID-19 would have a significant impact on the Company’s operations for the rest of fiscal 2022; and does not anticipate any impairment of its assets. Management of the Company believes that its financial resources will be sufficient to handle the challenges associated with COVID-19.

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements (“CFS”) were prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets, and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. For the six months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company had a net loss of approximately $3.11 million and $1.83 million, respectively. For the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company had a net loss of approximately $1.68 million and $0.96 million, respectively. The Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $15.18 million as of December 31, 2021, and negative cash flow from operating activities of approximately $3.82 million and $1.85 million for the six months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The historical operating results indicate the Company has recurring losses from operations which raise the question related to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. There can be no assurance the Company will become profitable or obtain necessary financing for its business or that it will be able to continue in business. The unaudited consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties. On July 20, 2021, the Company sold 2,436,904 shares of common stock at $3.48 per share. The net proceeds from the transactions were approximately $7,640,000, after deducting offering costs, which mitigates the liquidity concern and the initial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

If deemed necessary, management could raise additional funds by way of private or public offerings, or by obtaining loans from banks or others, to support the Company’s research and development (“R&D”), procurement, marketing and daily operation. While management of the Company believes in the viability of its strategy to generate sufficient revenues and its ability to raise additional funds on reasonable terms and conditions, there can be no assurances to that effect. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern depends upon the Company’s ability to further implement its business plan and generate sufficient revenue and its ability to raise additional funds by way of a public or private offering. There can be no assurance the Company will be successful in any future fund raising. In the event that the Company requires additional funding to finance its operations, the Company’s major shareholders have indicated their intent and ability to provide such financial support. Based on the Company’s most recent cash flows projection and working capital requirements, management of the Company believes that the Company will be able to continue to operate as a going concern in the foreseeable future and it will have sufficient working capital to meet its operating needs for at least the next 12 months.

 

BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND CONSOLIDATION

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements (“CFS”) were prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and applicable rules and regulations of the SEC regarding CFS.

VARIABLE INTEREST ENTITY

 

Pursuant to Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Section 810, “Consolidation” (“ASC 810”), the Company is required to include in its CFS, the financial statements of Shuhai Beijing, its VIE. ASC 810 requires a VIE to be consolidated if the Company is subject to a majority of the risk of loss for the VIE or is entitled to receive a majority of the VIE’s residual returns. A VIE is an entity in which a company, through contractual arrangements, bears the risk of, and enjoys the rewards normally associated with ownership of the entity, and therefore the Company is the primary beneficiary of the entity. 

 

Under ASC 810, a reporting entity has a controlling financial interest in a VIE, and must consolidate that VIE, if the reporting entity has both of the following characteristics: (a) the power to direct the activities of the VIE that most significantly affect the VIE’s economic performance; and (b) the obligation to absorb losses, or the right to receive benefits, that could potentially be significant to the VIE. The reporting entity’s determination of whether it has this power is not affected by the existence of kick-out rights or participating rights, unless a single enterprise, including its related parties and de - facto agents, have the unilateral ability to exercise those rights. Shuhai Beijing’s actual stockholders do not hold any kick-out rights that affect the consolidation determination.

 

Through the VIE agreements, the Company is deemed the primary beneficiary of Shuhai Beijing and its subsidiaries. Accordingly, the results of Shuhai Beijing and its subsidiaries were included in the accompanying CFS. Shuhai Beijing has no assets that are collateral for or restricted solely to settle their obligations. The creditors of Shuhai Beijing do not have recourse to the Company’s general credit.

 

VIE Agreements

 

Operation and Intellectual Property Service Agreement – This agreement was entered on October 20, 2015 and allows Tianjin Information to manage and operate Shuhai Beijing and collect 100% of its net profits. Under the terms of the Operation and Intellectual Property Service Agreement, Shuhai Beijing entrusts Tianjin Information to manage its operations, manage and control its assets and financial matters, and provide intellectual property services, purchasing management services, marketing management services and inventory management services to Shuhai Beijing. Shuhai Beijing and its shareholders shall not make any decisions nor direct the activities of Shuhai Beijing without Tianjin Information’s consent.

 

Shareholders’ Voting Rights Entrustment Agreement – Tianjin Information entered into a shareholders’ voting rights entrustment agreement (the “Entrustment Agreement”) on October 27, 2015, under which Zhixin Liu and Fu Liu (collectively the “Shuhai Beijing Shareholders”) vested their voting power in Shuhai Beijing to Tianjin Information or its designee(s). The Entrustment Agreement does not have an expiration date.

 

Equity Option Agreement – the Shuhai Beijing Shareholders and Tianjin Information entered into an equity option agreement (the “Option Agreement”) on October 27, 2015, pursuant to which the Shuhai Beijing Shareholders granted Tianjin Information or its designee(s) the irrevocable right and option to acquire all or a portion of Shuhai Beijing Shareholders’ equity interests in Shuhai Beijing for RMB 0.001 for each capital contribution of RMB 1.00. Pursuant to the terms of the Option Agreement, Tianjin Information and the Shuhai Beijing shareholders agreed to certain restrictive covenants to safeguard the rights of Tianjin Information under the option Agreement. Tianjin Information agreed to pay RMB 1.00 annually to Shuhai Beijing Shareholders to maintain the option rights. Tianjin Information may terminate the Option Agreement upon written notice. The Option Agreement is valid for 10 years from the effective date and renewable at Tianjin Information’s option.

 

Equity Pledge Agreement – Tianjin Information and the Shuhai Beijing Shareholders entered into an equity pledge agreement on October 27, 2015 (the “Equity Pledge Agreement”). The Equity Pledge Agreement guarantees the performance by Shuhai Beijing of its obligations under the Operation and Intellectual Property Service Agreement and the Option Agreement. Pursuant to the Equity Pledge Agreement, Shuhai Beijing Shareholders pledged all of their equity interests in Shuhai Beijing to Tianjin Information. Tianjin Information has the right to collect any and all dividends paid on the pledged equity interests during the pledge period. Pursuant to the terms of the Equity Pledge Agreement, the Shuhai Beijing Shareholders agreed to certain restrictive covenants to safeguard the rights of Tianjin Information. Upon an event of default or certain other agreed events under the Operation and Intellectual Property Service Agreement, the Option Agreement and the Equity Pledge Agreement, Tianjin Information may exercise the right to enforce the pledge.

Risk Factors relating to VIE Structure

 

Datasea Inc., the U.S. parent company, is a holding company with no material operations of its own. The Company conducts its operations in China through its VIE - Shuhai Beijing and its subsidiaries. The investors are not investing in the VIE. Neither the U.S. parent company nor its subsidiaries actually own any share in Shuhai Beijing. Instead, the U.S. parent company controls and receives the economic benefits of Shuhai Beijing business operation through a series of contractual agreements. The Company is subject to certain legal and operational risks associated with being based in China and having a majority of the operations through the contractual arrangements with the VIE. PRC laws and regulations governing the Company’s current business operations are sometimes vague and uncertain, and therefore, these risks may result in a material change in the Company’s operations. The VIE structure is used to replicate foreign investment in Chinese-based companies where Chinese law prohibits direct foreign investment in the operating companies, and that investors may never directly hold equity interests in the Chinese operating entities.  

 

In addition, due to the Company’s corporate structure, the Company is subject to risks due to uncertainty of the interpretation and the application of the PRC laws and regulations, including but not limited to limitation on foreign ownership of internet technology companies, and regulatory review of oversea listing of PRC companies through a special purpose vehicle, and the validity and enforcement of the VIE Agreements.

 

As of this report date, there was no dividends paid from the VIE to the U.S. parent company or the shareholders of the Company. There has been no change in facts and circumstances to consolidate the VIE. The following financial statement amounts and balances of the VIE were included in the accompanying CFS as of December 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021, and for the six and three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

USE OF ESTIMATES 

 

The preparation of CFS 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 reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The significant areas requiring the use of management estimates include, but are not limited to, the estimated useful life and residual value of property, plant and equipment, provision for staff benefits, recognition and measurement of deferred income taxes and the valuation allowance for deferred tax assets. Although these estimates are based on management’s knowledge of current events and actions management may undertake in the future, actual results may ultimately differ from those estimates and such differences may be material to the CFS. 

 

CONTINGENCIES

 

Certain conditions may exist as of the date the CFS are issued, which may result in a loss to the Company but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. The Company’s management and legal counsel assess such contingent liabilities, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise of judgment. In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against the Company or unasserted claims that may result in such proceedings, the Company’s legal counsel evaluates the perceived merits of any legal proceedings or unasserted claims as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought. If the assessment of a contingency indicates that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, the estimated liability would be accrued in the Company’s CFS.

 

If the assessment indicates that a potential material loss contingency is not probable but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, the nature of the contingent liability, together with an estimate of the range of possible loss if determinable and material, would be disclosed. As of December 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021, the Company has no such contingencies.

 

CASH AND EQUIVALENTS

 

Cash and equivalents include cash on hand, demand deposits and short-term cash investments that are highly liquid in nature and have original maturities when purchased of three months or less.  

 

9

 

 

INVENTORY

 

Inventory is comprised principally of intelligent temperature measurement face recognition terminal and identity information recognition products, and is valued at the lower of cost or net realizable value. The value of inventory is determined using the first-in, first-out method. The Company periodically estimates an inventory allowance for estimated unmarketable inventories when necessary. Inventory amounts are reported net of such allowances. There were $59,970 and $59,187 allowances for slow-moving and obsolete inventory (mainly for Smart-Student Identification cards) as of December 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021, respectively.

 

PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation. Major repairs and improvements that significantly extend original useful lives or improve productivity are capitalized and depreciated over the period benefited. Maintenance and repairs are expensed as incurred. When property and equipment are retired or otherwise disposed of, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the respective accounts, and any gain or loss is included in operations. Depreciation of property and equipment is provided using the straight-line method over estimated useful lives as follows:

 

Furniture and fixtures   3-5 years
Office equipment   3-5 years
Vehicles   5 years
Lease improvement   3 years

  

Leasehold improvements are depreciated utilizing the straight-line method over the shorter of their estimated useful lives or remaining lease term.

 

INTANGIBLE ASSETS

 

Intangible assets with finite lives are amortized using the straight-line method over their estimated period of benefit. Evaluation of the recoverability of intangible assets is made to take into account events or circumstances that warrant revised estimates of useful lives or that indicate that impairment exists. All of the Company’s intangible assets are subject to amortization. No impairment of intangible assets has been identified as of the balance sheet date.

 

Intangible assets include licenses, certificates, patents and other technology and are amortized over their useful life of three years.

 

FAIR VALUE (“FV”) OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

The carrying amounts of certain of the Company’s financial instruments, including cash and equivalents, accrued liabilities and accounts payable, approximate their FV due to their short maturities. FASB ASC Topic 825, “Financial Instruments,” requires disclosure of the FV of financial instruments held by the Company. The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for current liabilities qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of their FV because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and the current market rate of interest.

 

FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS AND DISCLOSURES

 

FASB ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements,” defines FV, and establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures that enhances disclosure requirements for FV measures. The three levels are defined as follows:

 

Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

 

10

 

 

Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include other than those in level 1 quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.

 

Level 3 inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the FV measurement.

 

The carrying value of the Company’s short-term financial instruments, such as cash, accounts receivable, prepaid expenses, accounts payable, advance from customers, accrued expenses and other payables approximates their FV due to their short maturities.

 

As of December 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021, the Company did not identify any assets or liabilities required to be presented on the balance sheet at FV.

 

IMPAIRMENT OF LONG-LIVED ASSETS

 

In accordance with FASB ASC 360-10, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets”, long-lived assets such as property and equipment are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable, or it is reasonably possible that these assets could become impaired as a result of technological or other changes. The determination of recoverability of assets to be held and used is made by comparing the carrying amount of an asset to future undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by the asset.

 

If such assets are considered impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured as the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its FV. FV generally is determined using the asset’s expected future discounted cash flows or market value, if readily determinable. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or FV less cost to sell. For the six and three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, there was no impairment loss recognized on long-lived assets.

 

UNEARNED REVENUE

 

The Company records payments received in advance from its customers or sales agents for the Company’s products as unearned revenue, mainly consisting of deposits or prepayment for 5G products from the Company’s sales agencies. These orders normally are delivered based upon contract terms and customer demand, and will recognize as revenue when the products are delivered to the end customers.

 

DEFERRED REVENUE

 

Deferred revenue consists primarily of local government’s financial support under “2020 Harbin Eyas Plan” to Xunrui for technology innovation of developing the Intelligent Campus Security Management Platform. The Company will record the grant as income when it passes local government’s inspection of the project. 

 

LEASES

 

The Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception under FASB ASC Topic 842. Right of Use Assets (“ROU”) and lease liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of remaining lease payments over the lease term. For this purpose, the Company considers only payments that are fixed and determinable at the time of commencement. As most of its leases do not provide an implicit rate, it uses its incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. The Company’s incremental borrowing rate is a hypothetical rate based on its understanding of what its credit rating would be. The ROU assets include adjustments for prepayments and accrued lease payments. The ROU asset also includes any lease payments made prior to commencement and is recorded net of any lease incentives received. The Company’s lease terms may include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that it will exercise such options.

 

11

 

 

ROU assets are reviewed for impairment when indicators of impairment are present. ROU assets from operating and finance leases are subject to the impairment guidance in ASC 360, Property, Plant, and Equipment, as ROU assets are long-lived nonfinancial assets.

 

ROU assets are tested for impairment individually or as part of an asset group if the cash flows related to the ROU asset are not independent from the cash flows of other assets and liabilities. An asset group is the unit of accounting for long-lived assets to be held and used, which represents the lowest level for which identifiable cash flows are largely independent of the cash flows of other groups of assets and liabilities. The Company recognized no impairment of ROU assets as of December 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021.

 

Operating leases are included in operating lease ROU and operating lease liabilities (current and non-current), on the consolidated balance sheets. As of December 31, 2021, the net ROU was $962,056 for the operating leases of the Company’s offices in various cities of China and senior officers’ dormitory in Beijing. As of December 31, 2021, total operating lease liabilities (includes current and noncurrent) were $917,544, which was for the operating leases of the Company’s offices in various cities of China and senior officers’ dormitory in Beijing.  

 

REVENUE RECOGNITION

 

The Company follows Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASC 606).

 

The core principle underlying FASB ASC 606 is that the Company will recognize revenue to represent the transfer of goods and services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in such exchange. This will require the Company to identify contractual performance obligations and determine whether revenue should be recognized at a point in time or over time, based on when control of goods and services transfers to a customer. The Company’s revenue streams are identified when possession of goods and services is transferred to a customer.

 

FASB ASC Topic 606 requires the use of a new five-step model to recognize revenue from customer contracts. The five-step model requires the Company (i) identify the contract with the customer, (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract, (iii) determine the transaction price, including variable consideration to the extent that it is probable that a significant future reversal will not occur, (iv) allocate the transaction price to the respective performance obligations in the contract, and (v) recognize revenue when (or as) the Company satisfies each performance obligation.

 

The Company derives its revenues from product sales and 5G messaging service contracts with its customers, with revenues recognized upon delivery of services and products. Persuasive evidence of an arrangement is demonstrated via product sale contracts and professional service contracts, and invoices. The product selling price and the service price to the customer are fixed upon acceptance of the agreement. The Company recognizes revenue when the customer receives the products and passes the inspection and when professional service is rendered to the customer, collectability of payment is probable. These revenues are recognized at a point in time after all performance obligations are satisfied. Revenue is recognized net of returns and value-added tax charged to customers.

 

During the six and three months ended December 31, 2021, the Company’s revenues of $9.61 million and $8.95 million, respectively, were mainly from 5G messaging services including 5G Short Message Services (“SMS”), 5G integrated message marketing cloud platform (“5G MMCP”) and 5G multi-media video messaging (a value-added service). The related cost for such services provided of $9.32 million and $8.71 million for the six and three months ended December 31, 2021, respectively, was mainly for the SMS service platform using fee that was provided from third-party mobile virtual network operators (MVNO) that obtains bulk access to network services at wholesale rates from its upstream suppliers or ultimate three major telecommunication and network operators in China, and sell it to downstream customers like Shuhai Beijing and its subsidiary, Hangzhou Zhangxun; and 5G MMCP project development cost. In addition, during the six and three months ended December 31, 2021, the Company’s revenue of $34,100 was from Smart City projects with related cost of $19,500, Smart City projects were mainly for the comprehensive security needs of residential communities, schools and commercial enterprises.

SEGMENT INFORMATION

 

FASB ASC Topic 280, “Segment Reporting,” requires use of the “management approach” model for segment reporting. The management approach model is based on the method a company’s management organizes segments within the company for making operating decisions and assessing performance. Reportable segments are based on products and services, geography, legal structure, management structure, or any other manners in which management disaggregates a company. Management determining the Company’s current operations constitutes a single reportable segment in accordance with ASC 280. The Company’s only business and industry segment is high technology and advanced information systems (“TAIS”). TAIS include smart city solutions that meet the security needs of residential communities, schools and commercial enterprises, and 5G messaging services including 5G SMS, 5G MMCP and 5G multi-media video messaging.

 

All of the Company’s customers are in the PRC and all revenues for the six and three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 were generated from the PRC. All identifiable assets of the Company are located in the PRC. Accordingly, no geographical segments are presented.

 

INCOME TAXES

 

The Company uses the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes.” Under this method, income tax expense is recognized for the amount of: (i) taxes payable or refundable for the current period and (ii) deferred tax consequences of temporary differences resulting from matters that have been recognized in an entity’s financial statements or tax returns. Deferred tax assets also include the prior years’ net operating losses carried forward. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in the results of operations in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is provided to reduce the deferred tax assets reported if based on the weight of the available positive and negative evidence, it is more likely than not some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

The Company follows FASB ASC Topic 740, which prescribes a more-likely-than-not threshold for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. FASB ASC Topic 740 also provides guidance on recognition of income tax assets and liabilities, classification of current and deferred income tax assets and liabilities, accounting for interest and penalties associated with tax positions, accounting for income taxes in interim periods, and income tax disclosures.

 

Under the provisions of FASB ASC Topic 740, when tax returns are filed, it is likely some positions taken would be sustained upon examination by the taxing authorities, while others are subject to uncertainty about the merits of the position taken or the amount of the position that would be ultimately sustained. The benefit of a tax position is recognized in the financial statements in the period during which, based on all available evidence, management believes it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination, including the resolution of appeals or litigation processes, if any. Tax positions taken are not offset or aggregated with other positions. Tax positions that meet the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold are measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that is more than 50 percent likely of being realized upon settlement with the applicable taxing authority. The portion of the benefits associated with tax positions taken that exceeds the amount measured as described above is reflected as a liability for unrecognized tax benefits in the accompanying balance sheets along with any associated interest and penalties that would be payable to the taxing authorities upon examination. Interest associated with unrecognized tax benefits is classified as interest expense and penalties are classified in selling, general and administrative expenses in the statement of income.  As of December 31, 2021, the Company had no unrecognized tax benefits and no charges during the six and three months ended December 31, 2021, and accordingly, the Company did not recognize any interest or penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits. There was no accrual for uncertain tax positions as of December 31, 2021. The Company files a U.S. and PRC income tax return. With few exceptions, the Company’s U.S. income tax returns filed for the years ending on June 30, 2017 and thereafter are subject to examination by the relevant taxing authorities; the Company uses calendar year-end for its PRC income tax return filing, PRC income tax returns filed for the years ending on December 31, 2016 and thereafter are subject to examination by the relevant taxing authorities.

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT EXPENSES

 

Research and development expenses are expensed in the period when incurred. These costs primarily consist of cost of materials used, salaries paid for the Company’s development department, and fees paid to third parties.

 

NONCONTROLLING INTERESTS

 

The Company follows FASB ASC Topic 810, “Consolidation,” governing the accounting for and reporting of noncontrolling interests (“NCIs”) in partially owned consolidated subsidiaries and the loss of control of subsidiaries. Certain provisions of this standard indicate, among other things, that NCI (previously referred to as minority interests) be treated as a separate component of equity, not as a liability, that increases and decreases in the parent’s ownership interest that leave control intact be treated as equity transactions rather than as step acquisitions or dilution gains or losses, and that losses of a partially-owned consolidated subsidiary be allocated to non-controlling interests even when such allocation might result in a deficit balance. 

 

The net income (loss) attributed to NCI was separately designated in the accompanying statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss). Losses attributable to NCI in a subsidiary may exceed a non-controlling interest’s interests in the subsidiary’s equity. The excess attributable to NCIs is attributed to those interests. NCIs shall continue to be attributed their share of losses even if that attribution results in a deficit NCI balance.

During the six months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company had loss of $258,281 and $36,555 attributable to the noncontrolling interest, respectively. During the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company had loss of $146,181 and $36,555 attributable to the noncontrolling interest, respectively. 

 

CONCENTRATION OF CREDIT RISK 

 

The Company maintains cash in accounts with state-owned banks within the PRC. Cash in state-owned banks less than RMB500,000 ($76,000) is covered by insurance. Should any institution holding the Company’s cash become insolvent, or if the Company is unable to withdraw funds for any reason, the Company could lose the cash on deposit with that institution. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts and believes it is not exposed to any risks on its cash in these bank accounts. Cash denominated in RMB with a U.S. dollar equivalent of $1,969,552 and $32,687 as of December 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021, respectively, was held in accounts at financial institutions located in the PRC‚ which is not freely convertible into foreign currencies.

 

Cash held in accounts at U.S. financial institutions is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or other programs subject to certain limitations up to $250,000 per depositor. As of December 31, 2021, cash of $264,808 was maintained at U.S. financial institutions. Cash was maintained at financial institutions in Hong Kong, and was insured by the Hong Kong Deposit Protection Board up to a limit of HK $500,000 ($64,000). As of December 31, 2021, the cash balance of $6,348 was maintained at financial institutions in Hong Kong. The Company, its subsidiaries and VIE have not experienced any losses in such accounts and do not believe the cash is exposed to any significant risk.

 

FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSLATION AND COMPREHENSIVE INCOME (LOSS)

 

The accounts of the Company’s Chinese entities are maintained in RMB and the accounts of the U.S. parent company are maintained in United States dollar (“USD”). The accounts of the Chinese entities were translated into USD in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 830 “Foreign Currency Matters.” All assets and liabilities were translated at the exchange rate on the balance sheet date; stockholders’ equity is translated at historical rates and the statements of operations and cash flows are translated at the weighted average exchange rate for the period. The resulting translation adjustments are reported under other comprehensive income (loss) in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 220, “Comprehensive Income.” Gains and losses resulting from foreign currency transactions are reflected in the statements of operations.

 

14

 

 

The Company follows FASB ASC Topic 220-10, “Comprehensive Income (loss).” Comprehensive income (loss) comprises net income (loss) and all changes to the statements of changes in stockholders’ equity, except those due to investments by stockholders, changes in additional paid-in capital and distributions to stockholders.

 

The exchange rates used to translate amounts in RMB to USD for the purposes of preparing the CFS were as follows:

 

    December 31,     December 31,     June 30,  
    2021     2020     2021  
Period-end date USD: RMB exchange rate     6.3757       6.5249       6.4601  
Average USD for the reporting period: RMB exchange rate     6.4323       6.7729       6.6273  

 

BASIC AND DILUTED EARNINGS (LOSS) PER SHARE (EPS) 

 

Basic EPS is computed by dividing income available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is computed similarly, except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential common shares had been issued and if the additional common shares were dilutive. Diluted EPS is based on the assumption that all dilutive convertible shares and stock options were converted or exercised. Dilution is computed by applying the treasury stock method. Under this method, options and warrants are assumed to have been exercised at the beginning of the period (or at the time of issuance, if later), and as if funds obtained thereby were used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period. For the six and three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company’s basic and diluted loss per share are the same as a result of the Company’s net loss. 1,319,953 and 101,500 warrants were anti-dilutive for the six months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020. 1,319,953 and 101,500 warrants were anti-dilutive for the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020.

 

STATEMENT OF CASH FLOWS 

 

In accordance with FASB ASC Topic 230, “Statement of Cash Flows,” cash flows from the Company’s operations are calculated based upon the local currencies. As a result, amounts shown on the statement of cash flows may not necessarily agree with changes in the corresponding asset and liability on the balance sheet.

 

RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326), which requires entities to measure all expected credit losses for financial assets held at the reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts. This replaces the existing incurred loss model and is applicable to the measurement of credit losses on financial assets measured at amortized cost. This guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2022. Early application will be permitted for all entities for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that the standard will have on its CFS.

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-06, Debt — Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity (“ASU 2020-06”). ASU 2020-06 simplifies the accounting for convertible debt by eliminating the beneficial conversion and cash conversion accounting models. Upon adoption of ASU 2020-06, convertible debt, unless issued with a substantial premium or an embedded conversion feature that is not clearly and closely related to the host contract, will no longer be allocated between debt and equity components. This modification will reduce the issue discount and result in less non-cash interest expense in financial statements. ASU 2020-06 also updates the earnings per share calculation and requires entities to assume share settlement when the convertible debt can be settled in cash or shares. For contracts in an entity’s own equity, the type of contracts primarily affected by ASU 2020-06 are freestanding and embedded features that are accounted for as derivatives under the current guidance due to a failure to meet the settlement assessment by removing the requirements to (i) consider whether the contract will be settled in registered shares, (ii) consider whether collateral is required to be posted, and (iii) assess shareholder rights. ASU 2020-06 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2023. Early adoption is permitted, but no earlier than fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, and only if adopted as of the beginning of such fiscal year. The Company adopted ASU 2020-06 effective July 1, 2021. The adoption of ASU 2020-06 did not have any impact on the Company’s CFS presentation or disclosures.

 

15

 

 

In May 2021, the FASB issued ASU 2021-04, Earnings Per Share (Topic 260), Debt — Modifications and Extinguishments (Subtopic 470-50), Compensation — Stock Compensation (Topic 718), and Derivatives and Hedging — Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Issuer’s Accounting for Certain Modifications or Exchanges of Freestanding Equity-Classified Written Call Options (“ASU 2021-04”).  ASU 2021-04 provides guidance as to how an issuer should account for a modification of the terms or conditions or an exchange of a freestanding equity-classified written call option (i.e., a warrant) that remains classified after modification or exchange as an exchange of the original instrument for a new instrument.  An issuer should measure the effect of a modification or exchange as the difference between the fair value of the modified or exchanged warrant and the fair value of that warrant immediately before modification or exchange and then apply a recognition model that comprises four categories of transactions and the corresponding accounting treatment for each category (equity issuance, debt origination, debt modification, and modifications unrelated to equity issuance and debt origination or modification). ASU 2021-04 is effective for all entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2021, including interim periods within those fiscal years. An entity should apply the guidance provided in ASU 2021-04 prospectively to modifications or exchanges occurring on or after the effective date. Early adoption is permitted for all entities, including adoption in an interim period. If an entity elects to early adopt ASU 2021-04 in an interim period, the guidance should be applied as of the beginning of the fiscal year that includes that interim period.  The adoption of ASU 2021-04 is not expected to have any impact on the Company’s CFS presentation or disclosures. 

 

The Company’s management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, authoritative guidance, if currently adopted, would have a material impact on the Company’s financial statement presentation or disclosures.

The Company conducts all of its businesses through its subsidiaries and affiliated entities, principally in the PRC.

 

The Company’s U.S. parent company is subject to U.S. income tax rate of 21% and files U.S. federal income tax return.  As of December 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021, the U.S. entity had net operating loss (“NOL”) carry forwards for income tax purposes of $1.57 million and $0.94 million. The NOL arising in tax years beginning after 2017 may reduce 80% of a taxpayer’s taxable income, and be carried forward indefinitely. However, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (“the CARES Act”) passed in March 2020, provides tax relief to both corporate and noncorporate taxpayers by adding a five-year carryback period and temporarily repealing the 80% limitation for NOLs arising in 2018, 2019 and 2020. Management believes the realization of benefits from these losses remains uncertain due to the parent Company’s limited operating history and continuing losses. Accordingly, a 100% deferred tax asset valuation allowance was provided.

 

The Company’s offshore subsidiary, Shuhai Skill (HK), a HK holding company is subject to 16.5% corporate income tax in HK. Shuhai Beijing received a tax holiday with a 15% corporate income tax rate since it qualified as a high-tech company. Tianjin Information, Xunrui, Guozhong Times, Guozhong Haoze, Guohao Century, Jingwei, Shuhai Nanjing, Zhangxun are subject to the regular 25% PRC income tax rate.

 

As of December 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021, the Company has approximately $12.28 million and $9.04 million of NOL from its HK holding company, PRC subsidiaries and VIEs that expire in calendar years 2021 through 2025. In assessing the realization of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets depends upon the Company’s future generation of taxable income during the periods in which temporary differences representing net future deductible amounts become deductible. Management considers the scheduled reversal of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. After consideration of all the information available, management believes that significant uncertainty exists with respect to future realization of the deferred tax assets and has therefore established a full valuation allowance as of December 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021.

Going Concern

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements were prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets, and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. For the six months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company had a net loss of approximately $3.11 million and $1.83 million, respectively. For the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company had a net loss of approximately $1.68 million and $0.96 million, respectively. The Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $15.18 million as of December 31, 2021, and negative cash flow from operating activities of approximately $3.82 million and $1.85 million for the six months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The historical operating results indicate the Company has recurring losses from operations which raise the question related to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. There can be no assurance the Company will become profitable or obtain necessary financing for its business or that it will be able to continue in business. The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties. On July 20, 2021, the Company sold 2,436,904 shares of common stock at $3.48 per share. The net proceeds from the transactions were approximately $7,640,000, after deducting offering costs, which mitigates the liquidity concern and the initial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. In addition, the Company’s continued promotion of the customers and revenues increase brought about by the 5G messaging business will also provide a stable cash flow guarantee for the Company’s subsequent development to a large extent.

 

If deemed necessary, management could raise additional funds by way of private or public offerings, or by obtaining loans from banks or others, to support the Company’s research and development (“R&D”), procurement, marketing and daily operation. While management of the Company believes in the viability of its strategy to generate sufficient revenues and its ability to raise additional funds on reasonable terms and conditions, there can be no assurances to that effect. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern depends upon the Company’s ability to further implement its business plan and generate sufficient revenue and its ability to raise additional funds by way of a public or private offering. There can be no assurance the Company will be successful in any future fund raising. In the event that the Company requires additional funding to finance its operations, the Company’s major shareholders have indicated their intent and ability to provide such financial support. Based on the Company’s most recent cash flows projection and working capital requirements, management of the Company believes that the Company will be able to continue to operate as a going concern in the foreseeable future and it will have sufficient working capital to meet its operating needs for at least the next 12 months.

Revenues

 

The total revenue of $9,650,609 and $135,239 was generated for the six months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The increase in the revenue for the six months ended December 31, 2021 was mainly due to the expansion of 5G messaging business, especially 5G SMS, integrated 5G IMMCP and 5G multi-media video messaging technology system (“Value-added service”). The income is based on the fee to charge on number of messages have been sent. In the same period of the last fiscal year, sales were solely from smart city business including face recognition terminals and related devices to schools or residential communities in China. 

 

30

 

 

From July 2021 to December 2021, the Company generated a revenue of $9,650,609, consisting of 5G business with an amount of $9,616,811.12, including $7,786,104.56 from 5G SMS, $1,830,706.56 from 5G IMMCP mobile projects on the cloud as value-added service, and $33,797.88 from smart city projects. The Company’s three major business lines have started full operations and the 5G messaging business is developing rapidly with a growth rate of more than 900 % compared to the immediate prior quarter ended September 30, 2021.

 

Cost of Revenues

 

Datasea recorded $9,340,715 and $57,013 cost of revenues for the six months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020 respectively. For the six months ended December 31, 2021, cost of revenues was mainly the SMS service platform fees to suppliers. For the six months ended December 31, 2020, cost of revenues was the inventory purchase for the products sold. The increase in cost of revenues was mainly due to the expansion into the 5G messaging business and the delivery of services related to the SMS service platform in 2021.

 

Operating costs incurred from July 2021 to December 2021 were $9,340,715, and cost of 5G messaging service was $9,321,224.15 including $7,517,733.48 for 5G SMS, $1,803,490.67 for 5G IMMCP and mobile on cloud projects, and $19,490.85 for smart city projects. These costs were the service procurement costs corresponding to the full operation of the three business lines of the Company. Among them, 5G messaging business has entered a period of rapid growth, and cost of procurement accounts for 80% of the overall procurement cost.

 

Gross Profit

 

Gross profit for the six months ended December 31, 2021 was $309,894 compared to gross loss of $78,226 for the six months ended December 31, 2020, respectively. The generation of gross profit was mainly due to the delivery of services related to the SMS service in 2021.

 

From July to December 2021, the overall gross profit margin was 3.22%, including 3.07% for 5G SMS, 5G IMMCP and mobile projects on cloud, and 42.33% for smart community projects. The Company’s smart city business continues to develop. It generates revenue and maintains relatively stable gross profit level.

 

Currently, the overall gross profit margin of the Company is low due to the following reasons:

 

The majority revenue of the Company from July to December 2021 was mainly generated by 5G SMS and 5G IMMCP value-added services. The sales of digital smart city service was only accounted for a very tiny portion while the acoustic intelligence segment is still in the process of product development which hasn’t contributed any income this quarter.

 

31

 

 

For 5G SMS and 5G IMMCP and value-added services, the Company formally entered the 5G messaging and its related business market last fiscal year. As the 5G messaging industry is still in an early stage, to attract the initial users, undercut competitions and gain market share as early as possible, the Company adopted a competitive pricing strategy to expand the first-mover advantage. As a result, Shuhai Beijing has been engaged by 100+ institutional clients for services, including establishing cooperation relationships with industry-leading customers such as the top three tech giants China mobile, and China telecom subsidiary.

 

As the Company proceeds into the later stage of the 5G messaging business, three factors will help equip the Company with more flexibility in pricing and improving the gross margin: 1) costs will be spread over a larger number of products as the Company keeps scaling the customers and increasing the productivity; 2) growing brand recognition and technology capabilities to serve clients with complex needs will help strengthen the Company’s pricing power; 3) after the commercialization of 5G messaging in the Chinese market (expected in the first quarter of 2022), the target customers and product forms will be expanded. For example, the Company will provide the 5G IMMCP as SaaS software, customization and value-added services to improve profit margin.

 

Selling, General and Administrative, and Research and Development Expenses

 

Selling expenses were $386,991 and $174,036 for the six months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The increase of $212,955 was mainly due to increase in payroll expense related to salespersons of $129,700, increase in technology service fees of $96,100, partly offset by a decrease in meals and entertainment expenses by $9,400 and a decrease in travel expense of $3,500. As mentioned, during past two quarters, the majority of revenue was generated by 5G Messaging with the strategy of sharing a higher portion of income with partners from the fee charged through each message has been sent Indeed, in order to expand the sales channel especially acoustic intelligence domestically & internationally, the investment on promotions, distributors, global exhibitions, and related activities will be increased. As the result, the selling expense to total sales is expected to be around the mid-range of industry average for high-growth technology business.

 

The Research & Development cost mainly consists of innovation & creation in both software and hardware to assist communities for addressing safety issues with public health concerns during the COVID-19 pandemic, expanding the Company’s leading acoustic intelligent application technologies, and continuing to develop 5G-related products. We incurred R&D expenses of $719,571 and $329,235 during the six months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively; a 118% increase on R&D investment. Due to the corporate and business strategies of establishing a spearhead position in the acoustic intelligence segment worldwide, the proper amount of capital budgeting on technological development will be invested over the next three years. Datasea aims to become one of the companies in China to obtain more patents than the research institutions and universities for solving the problems about lacking efficiency transferring intangible assets to economic values. By doing so, the joint research hubs with enterprises possess advanced R&D team both onshore and offshore will be setting up. In addition, the patents that Datasea is pursuing fall into the categories of “innovation” and PCT (Patent Cooperation Treaty) which are administered by World Intellectual Property Organization and are recognized globally.

 

The 4.0 version of 5G MMCP, which is Integrated 5G IMMCP, has been developed in three phases so far. The development cost paid was $500,000.

 

5G IMMCP connects with existing client promotion access such as SMS, email, WeChat, applet, APP Push and third-party tools, provides unified messaging and manages aggregated messaging business capabilities.

 

5G IMMCP mainly targets at: Customers with three or more reach channels, membership system, annual marketing budget of more than RMB50,000 (approximately $7,860) and private operating needs, mainly including government agencies, hospitals, universities and other public institutions with a large demand for notification. 5G IMMCP also aims to meet a large number of marketing needs, private domain operation needs with three to ten stores in the midstream sector (such as eating and drinking physical store chain merchants), online and offline multi-channel operation of brand merchants.

 

General and administration (“G&A”) expenses increased $1,186,308, or 83% from $1,431,972 during the six months ended December 31, 2020 to $2,618,280, during the six months ended December 31, 2021. The increase is attributed to increase in rental expenses by $199,100, increase in payroll expenses by $49,140 and increase in professional fees by $960,200, partly offset by a decrease in office expenses by $23,500.

 

The company’s setting up subsidiaries in Hangzhou and Shenzhen increased rent and personnel expenses. In addition, for financing and business expansion, the Company has invested in legal, investment and other professional services to meet the compliance requirements of the SEC, so as to ensure the realization of the Company’s strategic goals.

For the six months ended December 31, 2020, non-operating expense was $10,398, consisted mainly of other expense $12,202, partially offset by interest income $1,804. 

 

Net Loss

 

We generated net losses of $3,118,527 and $1,830,860 for the six months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The increase in net loss was due mainly to the increase in G&A expenses which partly offset by increase in gross profit as explained above.

 

During the fiscal year ending June 30, 2022, the Company will continue to improve the market expansion of its main business, based on existing contracts including smart campuses/canteen systems, smart community systems, 5G messaging, and the market launch of acoustic smart hardware products. The Company’s objective is to expand our revenue streams and achieve annual profit in the new fiscal year.

 

At present, the Company has completed the new strategic positioning and business layout by 2021, forming three main businesses and long-term development plans in smart city, acoustic intelligence and 5G messaging. According to the plan, in 2022, with the introduction of acoustic intelligent hardware products and solutions into the market, and the comprehensive commercialization of China’s 5G messaging services in the Chinese market (the Company has signed service agreements with mobile operators, and the development of 5G messaging applications by leading companies in express delivery, catering, medical and tourism industries). More than $17.05 million worth of 5G messaging business contracts have been signed, which will support the Company to achieve break-even and profitability in 2022. The Company’s operations will be in a virtuous circle.

Selling, General and Administrative, and Research and Development Expenses

 

Selling expenses were $156,192 and $119,971 for the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively, representing an increase of $36,221 or 30%. The increase was mainly due to the increase in payroll expense of salespersons by $59,400, partly offset by a decrease in meals and entertainment expenses by $12,900, decrease in travel expenses by $2,200, and decrease in other selling expense by $4,900.

 

Currently, we are focusing on developing products and software to assist schools and communities in addressing safety issues and public health issues during the pandemic, expanding the Company’s leading acoustic intelligent application technologies and products, and continuing to develop 5G-related applications. We incurred R&D expenses of $432,355 and $134,509 during the three months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. We intend to invest approximately $10 million in technological product development over the next three years.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Historically, we have funded our operations primarily through the sale of our common stock and shareholder loans. To enhance our ability to continue to operate as a going concern, we are dedicating resources to generate recurring revenues and sustainable operating cash flows. Given the development of 5G technology in China, we believe there is great demand for our acoustic intelligent technology and products. We believe our business will benefit from the increasing demand for public safety and COVID-19 prevention and control in China, as well as increasing demand for our smart community, safe campus, and smart payment solutions.

 

34

 

 

We expect to generate revenues through expanding our current smart city, 5G messaging and acoustic intelligence business, and through continuous product innovation and development as well as various types of value-added services. In order to maintain working capital sufficient to support our operations and finance the future growth of our business, we expect to fund any cash flow shortfall through financial support from our majority stockholders (who are also our board members or officers) and public or private issuance of securities. However, such additional cash resources may not be available to us on desirable terms, or at all, if and when needed by us.

 

As of December 31, 2021, we had working capital of $2,555,924 or a current ratio of 1.39:1. Our current assets were $9,129,063. As of June 30, 2021, we had a working capital deficit of $2,372,682 or a current ratio of 0.27:1. Our current assets were $885,985.

 

We expect the Company to continue to support its ongoing operations and financing through revenue growth and increased financing activities in business areas such as 5G messaging. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to secure such additional working capital on commercially viable terms or at all. 

 

The following is a summary of cash provided by or used in each of the indicated types of activities during the six months ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

Going forward

 

Datasea aims to become a well-known multinational conglomerate by providing cutting-edge artificial intelligence globally to better build the digital world. To achieve this objective, management of the Company plans to:

 

Continue to promote its 5G messaging business aggressively;
     
Establish comparative advantage on its acoustic intelligence segment through innovation and product differentiation;
     
Team up with domestic and international technology institutions to strengthen its research and development capabilities for the purpose of developing next generation products
     
Expand its sales into overseas markets such as western countries with abundant consumption rate and South East Asian countries with fast-growing GDP;
     
Optimize its capital structure and lower its financing costs;
     
Create strategic alliance with potential partners to create mutual synergy in the form of merger and acquisition or joint venture;
     
Enhance brand awareness and awareness of its intellectual properties;
     

  Maintain clients’ loyalty by providing outstanding customer service, exclusive service experience, and appropriate transparency and publicity.

 

Datasea’s major revenues generates from China’s policy-driven market. Management believes that the supporting documents released by the central government:14th Five Year Technology Innovation Plan, Notice of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology on Promoting and Accelerating the Application of 5G, New Generation Artificial Intelligence Development Plan are favorable to all the business segments of the Company because these are also the cores for the nation to conduct industry upgrading and economic transition for sustaining 5%-6% target GDP growth rate. Therefore, it is expected that market expansion will be across the board domestically by the promotion of both state and local officials. Lower cost of capital in term of fixed income security could be obtained to support working capital or long-term operation. Equity investors will be chasing related assets for certain percentage of stake, and highly possible that a subsidy or tax credit will be distributed to facilitate innovation & production.

 

Management of the Company is optimistic about the industry outlook based on the tremendous demand from various types of application layers caused by the highest population rate among the world. According to the statistic released by Dao Insight, the market size of smart cites, 5G messaging, and acoustic intelligence in 2025 will be RMB400 billion (approximately $62.88 billion), RMB300 billion (approximately $47.16 billion), and RMB1.1trillion (approximately $172.93 billion) respectively with an average compounded annual growth rate above 25%, which is outpacing the general economy and most of other industries.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

There are no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues, expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

(i) inadequate segregation of duties and effective risk assessment;

 

(ii) lack of personnel adequately trained in U.S. GAAP; and

 

(iii) insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of both U.S. GAAP and SEC guidelines.

 

In order to remediate the foregoing weaknesses, the Company has undertaken the following steps:

 

Continuing improve internal control charts, including, but not limited to, budget approval process, procurement and assets control, credit control, internal auditing and a cost accounting, and review of the accounting professional duties and responsibilities handbook.

 

The Company has prepared a compilation of internal control policies. Policies on internal procurement control, and inventory management and control to prevent and detect fraud have been put in place.

 

The internal control department and the legal department have established a joint working mechanism to review and spot check the implementation of the internal control system. Specific measures include interviews with the heads of relevant departments, and timely requests of the responsible persons to evaluate risks and corrective measures.

 

We are hiring financing staff to work with the international department; and

 

We are strengthening the joint working mechanism between internal and external lawyers to effectively prevent risks.

 

In addition, we have adopted internal control policies, including but not limited to, review of the accounting personnel duties and responsibilities handbook, a travel allowance policy, a reimbursement policy, a receivables policy, an asset control policy, an internal auditing policy and a cost accounting policy. We also established an internal audit department led by the director of internal audit, and a legal team to ensure proper compliance and risk management.

 

  To train the related personnel to execute the internal control policies and procedures;

 

  To summarize the internal control /audit reports quarterly to the Audit Committee; and

 

  All entities use the same set of accounting subjects in the financial software from January 1, 2021

 

We expect to further implement all measures in the fiscal year ending June 30, 2022. The remediation efforts set out above are largely dependent upon our generating more revenue to cover the costs of implementing the changes required.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Other than as described above, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ending December 31, 2021 that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
