Mr. Haiping Hu, Chairman of the Board of the Directors and CEO of SDH, commented: “During fiscal year 2021, our operations continued to be affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, as the hosting of large-scale events and activities was banned due to government restrictions in China. In order to mitigate the negative impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on our business, we managed to hold more small forums and salons to provide consulting services and facilitated sales of merchandises. As a result, our net revenues decreased by 68.03% compared to that of fiscal year 2020, and the Company also reported a net loss attributable to controlling shareholders of $8.40 million for fiscal year 2021, as compared to a net income of $12.09 million for fiscal year 2020, but our revenues from consulting services and sales of merchandises grew by over 280% and 40%, respectively, from a year earlier.”

“Meanwhile, we are also pursuing a major growth strategy to enter into the new energy material market. We have formed a joint venture with a number of parties, for the production of high-grade lithium-ion power battery anode materials. The clean energy initiatives around the world has led to rapid development of new energy vehicles and a huge increase in the demand for lithium-ion batteries. We believe that the new energy material market in general and the production of lithium-iron power battery anode materials have significant growth potential. We are very excited about this growth opportunity and hope it will bring great returns for our shareholders.”

Ms. Chao Liu, CFO of SDH, commented: “in fiscal year 2021, our knowledge sharing and enterprise service operation continued to be impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. Although we expect the negative impact of Covid-19 pandemic on our business will continue in fiscal year 2022, we are currently executing a strategic plan to expand our business into the new energy material market, which is expected to diversify our business and create great growth for our company in the future.”

Due to the government restrictions to prevent the further spread of COVID-19, we were prevented from offering large offline activities, which resulted in a decreased demand for member services.

Revenues from comprehensive tailored services decreased by $11.91 million, or 89.26%, from $13.35 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, to $1.44 million for the year ended December 31, 2021.

Revenue from online services decreased by $0.32 million, or 88.84% from $0.36 million for the year ended December 31, 2020 to $0.04 million for the year ended December 31, 2021. The decrease was primarily because we offered more free streaming content to attract existing potential clients.

Revenues from sales of merchandises increased by $0.61 million, or 40.75% from $1.50 million for the year ended December 31, 2020 to $2.11 million for the year ended December 31, 2021. The increase was primarily due to the fact that we organized more small trade conferences facilitating the sales of merchandises.

The decrease in our revenues was primarily attributable to the decrease in the revenue generated from comprehensive tailored services, sponsorship advertising services, member services, which was partially offset by the increase of revenue from consulting services and sales of merchandises.

Cost of goods sold were $2.06 million and $0.89 million for the years ended December 31, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The significant increase of the cost of goods sold was due to a sale of electrolytic copper, which incurred cost of goods sold of $2.00 million.
