Global Internet of People, Inc. (“SDH”, the “Company”, “we” or “our”) (NASDAQ: SDH), today announced its unaudited financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

CEO Commentary

“We are grateful for the opportunity to serve our clients and esteemed members,” commented Mr. Haiping Hu, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of SDH, “During the first half of 2021, our revenue continued to be affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, and as a result, our revenue was down by more than 16% year-on-year, mainly because the hosting of major events and activities was banned when reporting of newly infected cases occurred. However, our revenues from sponsorship advertising services grew by 44.2% to $1.7 million, because we were able to organize smaller seminars that offered advertising and promotional services, to hedge against the unpredictable and continuous impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our business operation. The revenue from the sale of merchandises also grew by 70.4%, which was driven by our live-streaming services that helped facilitate such sales. Looking ahead, we intend to continue keeping abreast of industry trends, supporting knowledge sharing resources and strengthening our enterprise service capabilities, in order to meet the needs of our existing and prospective clients, and lay the foundation for sustainable growth in the future.”

Revenues from member services

The Company offers three tiers of membership services, Platinum, Diamond and Protégé, which differ in membership fees as well as the level of the services provided. Members pay a fixed fee for rights to participate in seven activities, including study tours and forums, within a one-year membership period.

Revenues from member services decreased by $274,432, or 55.80%, from $491,806 for the six months ended June 30, 2020, to $217,374 for the six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily because we were prevented from offering large offline activities since the outbreak of COVID-19, which resulted in a decreased demand for member services.

Revenues from comprehensive tailored services  Revenues from comprehensive tailored services decreased by $1,882,045, or 58.99%, from $3,190,371 for the six months ended June 30, 2020, to $1,308,326 for the six months ended June 30, 2021. With the continuous control of gatherings in 2021, the demand of comprehensive tailored services for large conference and salon organization decreased.

Revenues from sponsorship advertising services

Sponsorship advertising is a special form of advertising, generally referring to a publicity strategy adopted by enterprises in order to enhance their corporate and product image, as well as brand awareness and influence. We provide sponsorship advertising services for our enterprise clients at events we hold, such as forums and study tours.

Revenues from sponsorship advertising services increased by $530,987, or 44.20%, from $1,201,415 for the six months ended June 30, 2020, to $1,732,402 for the six months ended June 30, 2021, due to the fact that we held more small conferences with sponsorship advertising in the first half of 2021.  Revenues from consulting services

We provide consulting services to small and medium-sized enterprises to develop strategies and solutions for the following: corporate reorganization, product promotion and marketing, industry supply chain integration, corporate governance, financing and capital structure, etc. Revenues from consulting services decreased by $134,557, or 67.55%, from $199,198 for the six months ended June 30, 2020, to $64,641 for the six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily because the continuous government restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic negatively impacted the demand for our consulting services.

Revenues from online services

Revenue from online services decreased by $161,281, or 84.24%, from $191,443 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 to $30,162 for the six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily because we offered more free streaming content to attract potential clients.

Revenues from sale of merchandises

Our revenues from sale of merchandises for the six months ended June 30, 2021 was mainly generated from sale of electrolytic copper. Revenues from sale of merchandises increased by $858,229, or 70.39%, from $1,219,296 for the six months ended June 30, 2020, to $2,077,525 for the six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily because we organized more small trade conferences facilitating the sales of merchandises in the first half of 2021.

Costs and operating expenses  Service costs

Our service costs primarily include (1) the cost of holding activities, such as venue rental fees, conference equipment fees, (2) professional and consulting fees paid to third parties for our activities; (3) the fees paid to mentors and experts; (4) labor costs; and (5) the amortization of costs associated with copyright maintenance.

Service costs of $708,719, increased by $74,405, or 11.73%, for the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to same period in 2020 of $634,314, mainly due to the increase of $53,427 in labor costs. Due to the impact of COVID-19, for the six months ended June 30, 2021, we transformed our strategy from holding large conferences to holding smaller conferences and salons, which necessitated higher labor costs.

Cost of goods sold

Cost of goods sold were $2,050,253 and $749,485 for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The significant increase of the cost of goods sold was due to the sale of electrolytic copper, which incurred cost of goods sold of $1,994,058 in the first half of 2021.

Selling expenses

Our selling expenses decreased by $59,635, or 12.54%, from $475,496 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 to $415,861 for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The decrease in our selling expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2021 was primarily attributable to a $214,275 decrease in salaries and bonuses, which was partially offset by the increase of labor costs of $145,845. We outsourced more services and paid fewer bonuses to sales staff, as we had significantly less offline activities for the six months ended June 30, 2021 as compared to the same period in 2020.

Such increase was primarily due to an increase in professional fees of $416,085 and welfare expense of $85,470. In order to meet our public company reporting and corporate governance requirements associated with being a public company, our professional fees increased in the first half of 2021.

Research and development expenses (“R&D expenses”)
