PART I

 

Item 1. Description of Business.

 

Overview

 

We are an emerging technology company and a smart security systems provider with proprietary technologies, based in Beijing, China. We focus on visual and non-visual fusion perception algorithms and big data analytics technologies, with the goal of providing customers with smart security solutions, smart hardware and education-related technologies applicable across multiple scenarios and industries.

 

We are committed to building a smart security ecosystem driven by overall needs for security. The Company has managed to commercialize its products to schools, public communities, governmental authorities, retail outlets, healthcare and scenic areas all over China. Additionally, the Company has built up partnerships with many world-famous enterprises and institutions, including Alibaba, Tencent, Baidu and so on.

 

We generate revenue by selling its smart security system products and smart hardware products to our customers. Presently, the Company mainly leverages its independently-developed big data security platform and smart 3D security platform to provide standardized or customized smart security systems towards schools, public communities and scenic areas. The systems feature specific functions, which include technical protection, networked alarming operation, cloud alarming and epidemic prevention. The Company has developed a one-stop turnkey solution that covers the entire public safety process including designing, developing, implementing and performing operation & maintenance. With respect to its smart hardware products, the Company utilizes the “basing purchase on sales” business model where we complete all the designing tasks in-house, then outsource the manufacturing to experienced third parties, while exercising quality control over the final work product.

 

We market and sell our smart security products, and solutions to customers through our own sales teams, partner agents and newly-founded operating entities to achieve internal sales goals. For the year ended June 30, 2020, we experienced a growth in our revenue. In addition to direct sales and providence of operation & maintenance service, we are also generating incremental revenue through various recurring services and platform-based value-added services.

 

Furthermore, as an extended value-added service to our safe campus security system, we develop and offer education-related technologies to build campus networks, education management systems, education cloud platforms, science education platform and other education systems used in schools.

 

The Company keeps exploring opportunities related to new value-added services that extend from the combination of smart security platforms and big data platform. We have also recently started to provide a series of value-added services such as smart consumptive payment in retail, 5G value-added services through synergies with operators, and e-commerce platform interfaces through the mobile version of Datasea's security systems, which have widened the Company's business coverage and brought about new sources of revenue and profit.

 

We have recently expanded our business and customer development to 13 provinces in China, such that our products are sold in about 40% of the provincial administrative regions in China; moreover, we have initiated marketing in Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo and other countries in Africa.

Impact of coronavirus outbreak

 

In December 2019, a novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) was reported in China, upon which the World Health Organization has declared the outbreak to constitute a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern.” During the period from January to March 2020, the Company’s marketing and business developments efforts have been materially adversely affected since, among other reasons, the Company’s employees were not able to return to our offices to resume their duties. The Company resumed its operations in April. As a recipient of the PRC government support programs intended to mitigate the adverse economic impact of the pandemic, the Company expects that its business operations would recover and not be materially affected going forward. Its intelligent security platform has enabled the Company’s R&D team to continue working in online mode during the pandemic, which the Company believes would facilitate and support the Company’s recovery. In addition, the Company believes its efforts to move its functions online were sufficiently prompt and effective to minimize adverse effects on the Company’s financial reporting and internal control over financing reporting systems. The Company does not anticipate any impairments of its assets. However, the Company expects that the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak on the United States and world economies may have a material adverse affect on the demand for the Company’s services. We currently believe that our financial resources will be adequate to see us through the outbreak. However, in the event that the pandemic continues on for a longer period of time, we may need to raise capital in the future.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted the Company to focus on developing epidemic related products to pursue new business opportunities. The smart epidemic system designed and developed by the Company in February of 2020 has been placed with 22 schools and 62 communities across a number of provinces in China.

 

Recent Developments

 

On December 21, 2018, we completed a registered, underwritten initial public offering and concurrent listing of our common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market, which offering generated gross proceeds of $6.7 million before deducting underwriter’s commissions and other offering costs, resulting in net proceeds of approximately $5.7 million (the “2018 Offering”), of which $1,000,000 was placed in an escrow account. $600,000 of the escrow fund is being held by the escrow agent pursuant to the terms and conditions of a certain Indemnification Escrow Agreement between us and the underwriter of the offering. $400,000 of the escrow fund was disbursed to the Company in February 2019 when the underwriter confirmed receipt of a written legal opinion from PRC legal counsel in connection with such offering. In the 2018 Offering, we sold 1,667,500 shares of common stock (including shares issued pursuant to the underwriter’s over-allotment option) at an offering price of $4 per share. In connection with the 2018 Offering, our common stock began trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market beginning on December 19, 2018 under the symbol “DTSS.”

Operational Developments

 

The independently-developed big data security platforms and smart 3D security platforms, altogether with the integration with high-precision hardware products, has enabled us to build smart 3D security systems for users across multiple fields, including safe campus security systems, public community security systems and smart scenic area security system. As of the reporting date, the safe campus security systems have been used in many schools in Liaoning, Jilin, Jiangsu, Shanxi and other regions in China. Despite the impact of coronavirus pandemic in early 2020, the Company is still actively expanding the safe campus market and has signed contracts with new customer from Heilongjiang and other places. Our public community security system has been utilized and promoted in community projects in Beijing, Anhui, Fujian and other places. We plan to promote this public community security system throughout China. As for the smart scenic area security system, we have finished development and testing of the 1.0 version and plan to put it onto the market in 2021.

 

The Company has been taking great efforts to upgrade and improve our smart security systems. After the COVID-19 outbreak, our R&D team was able to complete development of the Datasea epidemic related system within two months, which was based on our smart security system, thus enabling us to provide schools and public communities with epidemic monitoring and control systems. As of August 21, 2020, the Company has completed installation of epidemic prevention and control systems in 62 public communities and 22 schools from Beijing, Tianjin, Anhui, Fujian, Heilongjiang and other places.

 

As part of Datasea’s Epidemic Control System (Campus Version), the Company's R&D team has developed an applet called Datasea Cloud School enabled by WeChat applet, with basic functions including epidemic reporting (from student, teacher and campus side, respectively), student information collection, assignment review, guest management, student attendance management, campus activity, notification release and so on.

 

Besides, Datasea has successfully achieved upgraded integration between its epidemic control system and Datasea 3D security system. At present, in addition to basic functions such as intelligent video surveillance, dynamic video identification, personnel identification, staff function management and e-map management, Datasea has also achieved upgrading of the epidemic prevention and control sub-system to provide users with comprehensive tools for epidemic monitoring and control.

 

The Company is taking great efforts to expand market network and strengthen sales team. It has gradually built up a sales team with experience of serving the Fortune 500 companies, which is divided by five major regions in terms of domestic market development: the three northeastern provinces, Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei, the Yangtze River Delta, the central and western regions, and the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area; at the same time, it also continues to develop agent channels all over China, so as to leverage agent corporate marketing resources and experience in education and public sectors to win both customers and orders. As of August 21, 2020, the Company has completed obligations concerning epidemic related system contracts with 62 public communities and 22 school, among which the Company has obtained customers in Beijing, Tianjin, Anhui and Fujian for the first time, resulting in the Company's products being sold in 40% of China's provincial administrative regions.

History and Background 

 

We were incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on September 26, 2014 under the name Rose Rock Inc. On May 27, 2015, we amended our articles of incorporation to change our name to Datasea Inc. Up until October 2015, our primary business activities were providing consulting services to various U.S. companies seeking to do business in China as well as Chinese companies looking to enter the U.S. markets. Nonetheless, we were considered a shell company as defined in Rule 12b-2 under the Securities Act, as we had no or nominal business operations, employees and/or assets.

 

On May 26, 2015, pursuant to the terms of a stock purchase agreement, Ms. Zhixin Liu purchased 20,000,000 shares (without giving effect to our one-for-three reverse stock split that became effective on May 1, 2018), or 57.14%, of the issued and outstanding shares of our common stock from Mr. Xingzhong Sun, who was our sole officer, director and majority shareholder at the time of the transaction. As part of the transaction, Zhixin Liu was appointed as the Chairman of our Board of Directors (the “Board”). 

 

On October 29, 2015, we entered into a share exchange agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) with Ms. Zhixin Liu and Mr. Fu Liu, the members (“Members”) of Datasea Skill (HK) Limited (“Shuhai Skill (HK)”), a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the PRC, whereby the Members transferred all of their membership interests of Shuhai Skill (HK) to us in exchange for the issuance of an aggregate of 6,666,667 shares of our common stock (the transaction, hereinafter referred to as the “Share Exchange”). Upon consummation of the Share Exchange, Shuhai Skill (HK) and its consolidated subsidiaries, Tianjin Information Sea Information Technology Co., Ltd., a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of the PRC (“Tianjin Information”), became our wholly-owned subsidiary, and Shuhai Information Technology Co., Ltd., also a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of the PRC (“Shuhai Beijing”), through its existing contractual relationship with Tianjin Information, became our variable interest entity (“VIE”). In addition, Xinzhong Sun resigned from the positions as our director, President, Secretary and Treasurer. Ms. Liu was appointed as our Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer, President, Interim Chief Financial Officer, Treasurer and Secretary and Mr. Liu was appointed as a director. Mr. Liu is the father of Ms. Liu.

 

As a result of the Share Exchange, we, through our consolidated subsidiaries, are engaged in the business of providing Internet security products, new media advertising, micro-marketing, data analysis services in the PRC. All business operations are conducted through our wholly-owned subsidiary, Tianjin Information, and through Shuhai Beijing, our VIE. Shuhai Beijing is considered to be a VIE because we do not have any direct ownership interest in it, but, as a result of a series of contractual agreements (the “VIE Contractual Agreements”) among Tianjin Information, Shuhai Beijing and its shareholders, we are able to exert effective control over Shuhai Beijing and receive 100% of the net profits or net losses derived from the business operations of Shuhai Beijing. The VIE Contractual Agreements are more fully described below.

 

On April 12, 2018, our Board of Directors and stockholders approved a one-for-three reverse stock split of our issued and outstanding shares of common stock, which became effective on May 1, 2018, decreasing the number of outstanding shares from 57,511,771 to 19,170,827. Subsequent to the split, the number of our outstanding shares of our common stock increased from to 19,170,827 to 19,170,846 to accommodate certain shareholders’ positions due to rounding elections payable at the beneficial owner level. Unless otherwise stated, all shares and per share amounts in this report have been retroactively adjusted to give effect to this stock split.

Corporate Structure

 

The chart below depicts the corporate structure of the Company as of the date of this report.

 

 

 

Corporate business

 

Big data security platform

 

With reliance on Internet platforms, the Company's big data security analysis system is enabled to integrate video surveillance resources and make analysis based on AI and big data technologies, so as to meet the application needs of different security scenarios across industries.

 

Smart 3D security platform

 

The Company leverages advanced computer visual algorithms, the fusion of visual and non-visual perception algorithms, and the big data analysis engine to build smart 3D security holographic perceptions to facilitate global monitoring and real-time decision-making. Moreover, it is also capable of building up a cloud-based smart 3D security system.

 

The Company was able to integrate a series of smart hardware products including high-precision face recognition temperature measurement devices, double spectrum infrared temperature measurement cameras and various sensing detectors based on the above-mentioned core platforms, which was helpful to establish smart 3D security systems at the user side. For this reason, we have specifically developed three types of smart 3D security systems according to industrial application scenarios, i.e. Safe Campus security system, public community security system and scenic area security system, so as to cater to customers’ ever-increasing requirements.

 

- 6 -

 

 

Safe Campus Security System

 

Relying on the integration of visual and non-visual perception algorithms, our Safe Campus security system is developed based on our big data security platform and smart 3D security platform, for the purpose of ensuring personal safety of teachers and students, improving campus security system, and enhancing overall prevention and control capacity throughout campus. We offer different options to fit the different requirements of kindergartens, primary schools, middle schools and colleges. Users can either buy the standard version (including basic function modules) or buy tailor-made system according to their specific needs. Information-based smart management all over the campus can now be implemented through data processing by such security system. So far, through systematic and statistical analysis of information, this system has been used for personnel identification management, alarm receipt and response management as well as file management so as to achieve intelligent data-based management of key targets (including people, location, object, matter, organization) as well as plans, contingencies and measures for prevention and control across the campus. In addition, with the increase in the number and frequency of individual users downloading and using the safe campus security system through their mobile devices, the Company has managed to explore the business model of providing individual users with value-added services like e-commerce platform interface.

 

According to the Report of Market Prospective and Investment Strategy Planning on China Security Industry (2018-2023) by China Qianzhan Industry Research Institute, alongside with the speeding-up of AI industrialization, smart security products are expected to see a high-speed development, and the security market size in China is forecasted to reach the trillion (RMB) level. To capitalize the market opportunity, we plan to establish a nationwide sales network in China through our sales team and strategic partners. So far, our Safe Campus security system have been applied in schools of Liaoning, Jilin, Jiangsu, Shanx, and Heilongjiang provinces. We intend to continue to increase R&D investment to improve Safe Campus solutions, enhance campus security, and ensure campus a safe place with excellent services.

 

Public Community Security System

 

Our public community security system has security functions of video surveillance, property management, vehicle analysis, electronic tour inspection and so on. Through real-time video monitoring, face recognition and other security functions, anomalies can be detected for risk control, and the application value of video can be improved in an efficient and simple way by transforming passive surveillance into active prevention, thus comprehensively improving the security prevention capacity throughout the community. The newly-designed module of smart community security system has been used in residential communities in Beijing Anhui, Fujian and other provinces. In order to satisfy diversified operational management requirements, the team has also developed different versions (WeChat applet, APP) mobile applications to meet the needs of households, property management and the whole community. Such system is designed to improve the efficiency of public community management and provide convenience for people in the community.

Datasea epidemic system 

 

In the context of the COVID-19 pandemic, we made efforts to leverage our technological capabilities to develop an epidemic control system by using our big data security management platform and smart 3D security platform in a short period of time. Such system is mainly designed to provide public health data monitoring service for various end-users, including schools and public communities.

 

Characteristics - campus version

 

As part of Datasea’s Epidemic Control System (Campus Version), the Company's R&D team has specifically developed an applet called Datasea Cloud School enabled by WeChat (student version and teacher version). This system can be integrated with functions like abnormal temperature reporting, health kick, real-time data uploading, anomaly alarming, assignment management, academic performance management, face recognition and so forth, thus helping schools carry out efficient epidemic control and ensure normal reaching and research operation.

 

Characteristics - public community version

 

Needs on security are more complicated in public places with dense population, such as residential communities, shopping malls and factories. Compared with the campus version, the community version also has functions of code scanning registration via mobile phones, thermal imaging temperature measurement, mask detection, home quarantine visits, etc., which has addressed the challenges of temperature detection of large passenger flows and low efficiency of epidemic detection that usually occurred in public places and has effectively cut off the spreading channels of the epidemic.

 

Expanding our business model

 

During the reporting period, the Company expanded its business model by charging service fees in addition to selling hardware or software products.

 

From April to May 2020, we have signed new agreements that entailed service fees with various K-12 schools. Generally, the term of these agreements is three to five years. According to these agreements, we will provide epidemic systems to these schools free of charge, while the schools collect service fees from students and pay us for each semester. No service fees from these agreements were recorded in the year ended June 30, 2020 as services have not been provided yet. With the gradual provision of relevant services, the corresponding revenue will then be recognized. We believe that providing services to these schools will be a significant step in our development which we anticipate will allow us to expand and build long-term relationships with customers.

 

From late August to September 2020, the Company signed agreements with 6 institutions (including 4 gas stations) in Shenzhen, a city of Guangdong Province, to provide big data value-added services to the above-mentioned customers, e.g. big data smart information software platform and hardware utilization, payment and interface maintenance, etc., so as to collect service fees. Datasea’s Smart System is designed to service the needs of retail industry vendors and utilizes big data analytics and facial recognition technology. The system allows retailers to employ facial recognition technology to charge customers to be used at the point of sale. The Company will install hardware equipment for the clients, perform regular maintenance, and provide the Smart System in exchange for 0.38% of transaction value of each transaction utilizing the Company’s technology. The term of each of the service agreement is one year.

 

In addition, with the increase in the number and frequency of individual users downloading and using the safe campus security system through their mobile devices, the Company has managed to explore the business model of providing individual users with value-added services like e-commerce platform interface.

 

For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, the Company achieved a total revenue of $1.41 million, including $1.29 million generated by 20 schools through Safe Campus security systems sold by agents, as well as around $120,000 generated by 62 epidemic related system contracts.

This law at present is only in draft form, but is expected to be adopted in the near future. Major PRC regulations applicable to our products and services and the Internet security industry include Computer Information System Security Specific Product Testing and Sales License Management Method (Ministry of Public Security Order No. 32) (“Order 32”) and Internet Security Protection Technology Measures Provision (Ministry of Public Security Order No. 82) (“Order 82”). Order 32 sets forth the license requirement for Internet security products providers and related approval procedures of license applications. Order 82 specifies certain security measures Internet service providers shall take to ensure Internet security. Providers of ISP connecting service and Internet-based data processing service are within the scope of Order 82.

Item 1A. Risk Factors

 

An investment in our common stock is very speculative and involves a high degree of risk. You should carefully consider the following risk factors in evaluating our business before purchasing any shares of our common stock. No purchase of our common stock should be made by any person who is not in a position to lose the entire amount of his or her investment. The order of the following risk factors is presented arbitrarily. You should not conclude the significance of a risk factor because of the order of presentation. Our business and operations could be seriously harmed as a result of any of these risks.

 

Risks Relating to Our Business and Industry

 

We have a limited operating history as a developer of smart security solutions and education technologies. Our limited operating history may not provide an adequate basis to judge our future prospects and results of operations.

 

We have a limited operating history. Our operating entity, Shuhai Beijing, was formed in February 2015 and has yet to generate material revenues and it may not generate material revenue or any profit for the foreseeable future. We are still in the process of developing, marketing and expansion of our business. We expect that our safe campus, scenic area and public community security systems supported by our smart security solutions will be our core business in the future. We have limited experience and operating history in developing and marketing our products and services. In addition, the market for our products and services is highly competitive. If we fail to successfully develop and offer our products and services in an increasingly competitive market, we may not be able to capture the potential growth opportunities associated with our products and services or recover our development and marketing costs, and our future results of operations and growth strategies could be adversely affected. Our limited history may not provide a meaningful basis for investors to evaluate our business, financial performance and prospects.

 

Our independent registered public accounting firm’s auditors’ report includes an explanatory paragraph stating that there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

 

We are an early and development stage company and have limited financial resources. We had cash balances of $1,065,936 and $6,072,637 as of June 30, 2020 and June 30, 2019, respectively. We generated revenues of $1,414,780 during the year ended June 30, 2020. We had a net cash outflow of approximately $5 million during fiscal year ended June 30, 2020. We had a deficit of approximately $7,413,381 at June 30, 2020.  

 

Our resources and source of funds have primarily consisted of loans and capital contributions from shareholders and funds raised from equity financing. We believe these are sufficient to keep our business operations functioning for the next twelve months. We have generated revenue of $1,414,780 from our business during the year ended June 30, 2020, and our expenses will be accrued until sufficient financing is obtained or our shareholders loan us the necessary funds to pay for these expenses. No assurances can be given that we will be able to obtain funds from our shareholders or others to continue our operations. We may need to seek additional financing. The financing sought may be in the form of equity or debt financing or a combination of both from various sources as yet unidentified. No assurance can be given that we will generate sufficient revenue or obtain the necessary financing to continue as a going concern and the failure to do so could cause us to cease our operations.

Supply chain issues that increase our costs or cause a delay in our ability to fulfill orders, could have an adverse impact on our business and operating results, and our failure to estimate customer demand properly may result in excess or obsolete component supply, which could adversely affect our gross margins.

 

Currently, we do not own or operate our manufacturing facilities, but rely on third-party contractors to manufacture our products, and expect that we will continue to rely on existing and new contractual manufacturers for the foreseeable future. The following reliance issues could have an adverse impact on the supply of our products and on our business and operating results:

 

Any financial problems of our contract manufacturers or component suppliers could limit supply or increase costs;

 

Reservation of manufacturing capacity at our contract manufacturers by other companies, inside or outside of our industry, could limit supply or increase costs; and

 

Industry consolidation occurring within one or more component supplier markets could limit supply or increase costs.

 

In addition, the following supply chain-related issues could adversely affect our customer relationships, operating results and financial condition:

 

a reduction or interruption in supply of one or more components;

 

a significant increase in the price of one or more components;

 

a failure to adequately authorize procurement of inventory by our contract manufacturers; and

 

a failure to appropriately cancel, reschedule or adjust our requirements based on our business needs.

 

Over the long term, we intend to invest in engineering, sales, service and marketing activities, and these investments may achieve delayed, or lower than expected, benefits which could harm our operating results.

 

While we intend to focus on managing our costs and expenses, over the long term, we also intend to invest in personnel and other resources related to our engineering, sales, service and marketing functions as we realign and dedicate resources to key growth areas, such as smart security products and services. We are likely to recognize the costs and expenses associated with these investments earlier than some of the anticipated benefits, and the return on these investments may be lower, or may develop more slowly, than we expect. If we do not achieve the benefits anticipated from these investments, or if the achievement of these benefits is delayed, our operating results may be adversely affected.

 

- 22 -

 

 

Our business substantially depends upon the continued growth of the security, security-based systems, and education technologies, the decrease of which could have a negative impact on our business.

 

A substantial portion of our business and revenue depends on growth and evolution of the security system and education technologies in the PRC and globally, including the continued development and expansion of the Internet. To the extent that an economic slowdown or economic uncertainty and any related reductions in capital spending adversely affect spending on Internet infrastructure, we could experience material harm to our business, operating results and financial condition.

 

Because of the rapid introduction of new products and changing customer requirements related, we believe that we could receive a high degree of publicity and visibility. Because smart security systems are our major products and resources, our business, operating results and financial condition may be materially adversely affected, regardless of whether or not these problems are due to the performance of our own products or services. Such an event could also result in a material adverse effect on the market price of our common stock independent of direct effects on our business. 

 

Product quality problems could lead to reduced revenue, gross margins, and net income.

 

The smart security system we provide is highly complex as the products incorporate both hardware and software technologies. Neither we nor our contract manufacturers have developed a sophisticated product testing program due to the limit of available technologies. There can be no assurance that the pre-shipment testing programs we develop in the future will be adequate to detect all defects, including defects in individual products or defects affecting numerous shipments. Such potential defects might interfere with customer satisfaction, reduce sales opportunities or affect gross margins. As an example, software typically contains bugs that can unexpectedly interfere with expected operations. From time to time, we will have to replace certain components and provide remediation in response to the discovery of defects or bugs in our products. There can be no assurance that such remediation, depending on the product involved, would not have a material adverse impact on our business. An inability to cure a product defect could result in the failure of a product line, temporary or permanent withdrawal from a product or market, damage to our reputation, additional inventory costs, or product reengineering expenses, any of which could have a material adverse impact on our revenue, margins and net income.

 

We will likely have to incur indebtedness or issue new equity securities to fund future growth. If we are not able to obtain additional capital, our ability to operate or expand our business may be impaired and our results of operations could be adversely affected.

 

Our business requires significant levels of capital to finance the research and development of new products and service platforms that meet the constantly evolving industry standards and consumer demands. As such, we expect that we will need additional capital to fund our future growth. For the time being, we are primarily depending on contribution from shareholders, equity financing and cash income. If cash from such sources is insufficient or unavailable, or if cash is used for unanticipated needs, we may require additional capital sooner than anticipated. Our ability to obtain additional capital on acceptable terms or at all is subject to a variety of uncertainties, including:

 

investors’ perceptions of, and demand for, companies operating in China;

 

conditions of the U.S. and other capital markets in which we may seek to raise funds;

 

our future results of operations, financial condition and cash flows;

 

governmental regulation of foreign investment in China;

 

economic, political and other conditions in the United States, China and other countries; and

 

governmental policies relating to foreign currency borrowings.

 

The sale of additional equity securities would result in dilution of our existing shareholders. In addition, the incurrence of indebtedness would result in increased debt service obligations and could result in operating and financial covenants that would restrict our operations. It is highly uncertain whether financing will be available in amounts or on terms acceptable to us, if at all. If we are not able to obtain additional capital, our ability to operate or expand our business may be impaired and our results of operations could be adversely affected.

Our success is dependent on retaining key personnel who would be difficult to replace.

 

Our success depends largely on the continued services of our key management and technical staff. In particular, our success depends on the continued efforts of Ms. Zhixin Liu, our Chairman of the Board of Directors and Chief Executive Officer, and Mr. Fu Liu, one of our directors and Ms. Liu’s father. Ms. Liu and Mr. Liu have been instrumental in developing our business model and are crucial to our business development. There can be no assurance that they will continue in their present capacities for any particular period of time. The loss of the services of Ms. Liu and/or Mr. Liu could materially and adversely affect our business development. 

 

The various industries we are in are characterized by constant and rapid technological change and evolving standards. If we fail to anticipate and adapt to these changes and evolutions, our sales, gross margins and profitability will be adversely affected.

 

Technologies change rapidly in the security solution, new media advertising, micro marketing and data processing industries with frequent new products and service developments and evolving industry standards. Companies operating within these industries are continuously developing new products and services with heightened performance and functionality, putting pricing pressure on existing products. Accordingly, we believe that our future success will depend on our ability to continue to anticipate technological changes and to offer additional product and service opportunities that meet evolving standards on a timely and cost-effective basis. Our failure to accurately anticipate the introduction of new technologies or adapt to fluctuations in the industry could lead to our having significant amounts of obsolete inventory that can only be sold at substantially lower prices and profit margins than anticipated. In addition, if we are unable to develop planned new technologies, we may be unable to compete effectively due to our failure to offer products or services most demanded by the marketplace. Products and services that our competitors develop or introduce may also render our products and services noncompetitive or obsolete. If any of these failures occur, our business and results of operations would be adversely affected. 

 

We may face heightened competition from existing mature competitors as well as new entrants into the security equipment and service industries in which we compete within the PRC. If we are unable to compete effectively, we may lose customers and our financial results will be negatively affected.

 

The security and marketing industries in the PRC are highly competitive. Currently, Shuhai Beijing’s primary competitors for security solutions and education-related technologies are mature companies with longer operating histories, more engineering resources, relatively sophisticated distribution channels and existing customer bases. For our safe campus security solutions, we compete with others who also offer their own campus electronic management solutions. Further, there are new competitors entering our industries. As a result, we could experience difficulties in obtaining customers, capturing market share, and generating revenue from our major products and services. 

 

We depend on contract manufacturers, and our production and products could be harmed if they are unable to meet our volume and quality requirements and alternative sources are not available.

 

We rely on third party contract manufacturers to provide manufacturing services for our products. If these services become unavailable, we would be required to identify and enter into new agreements with other contract manufacturer or take the manufacturing in-house. The loss of our contract manufacturers could significantly disrupt production as well as increase the cost of production. These changes could have a material adverse effect on our business and results of operations.

 

Our smart security systems may not be accepted by the intended users of our products, which could harm our future financial performance.

 

There can be no assurance that our smart security systems will achieve wide acceptance by our intended users. The degree of market acceptance for products and services based on our technology will also depend upon a number of factors, including the establishment and demonstration of the ability of our proposed solutions to provide an acceptable level of security in an efficient manner. Long-term market acceptance of our products and services will depend, in part, on the capabilities and operating features of our products and technologies as compared to those of other available products and services. As a result, there can be no assurance that currently available products, or products under development for commercialization, will be able to achieve market penetration, revenue growth or profitability, which would harm our future financial performance.

Changes to existing regulations may present technical, regulatory and economic barriers to the provision of our products and services, which may significantly increase our costs and adversely affect the results of our operations.

 

The smart security industry in China is highly regulated by the PRC Ministry of Public Security and Ministry of Industry and Information Technology. The PRC Ministry of Public Security and the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology might change the regulatory framework or impose higher technical standards in the future. As a result of this significant regulation, we may be unable to comply with existing or new laws, rules and regulations, and may have to incur extra costs in connection with engaging new technical staff, improving our existing products, and renewing our licenses.

 

The control deficiencies in our internal control over financial reporting may, until remedied, cause errors in our financial statements or cause our filings with the SEC to not be timely.

 

Our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective or the period covered by this Annual Report as described in Item 9A. Controls and Procedures. Ineffective internal control over financial reporting or disclosure controls and procedures may result in errors in our financial statements that could require a restatement, or our filings may not be timely made with the SEC. We intend to implement additional corporate governance and control measures to strengthen our control environment as we are able, but it takes management time and resources to achieve, and we may not achieve our desired objectives. Moreover, no control environment, no matter how well designed and operated, can prevent or detect all errors or fraud. We may identify material weaknesses and control deficiencies in our internal control over financial reporting in the future that may require remediation and could lead investors losing confidence in our reported financial information, which could lead to a decline in our stock price.

 

We have seen a substantial improvement and progress in our internal control over financial reporting. If no improvement measures are taken, or if we experience additional material weaknesses in the future or otherwise fail to maintain an effective system of internal controls in the future, we may not be able to accurately or timely report our financial condition or results of operations, which may adversely affect investor confidence in us and, as a result, the value of our common stock.

 

Our management has assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting with an assessment report as of June 30, 2020, and plans to shorten the cycle and increase the frequency concerning the testing cycle for the effectiveness of internal control measures. The annual risk control assessment reporting system will be improved to a quarterly risk control assessment system

 

Our efforts in the building of internal control system is not limited to the formulation and implementation of financial management and control measures, but focuses on the combination of comprehensive and targeted control to build up an internal control system that best fits us. According to the management system imperfections concerning job responsibilities, departmental processes and so on that are identified through self-examination, the Company, by highlighting six elements of "internal environment, risk assessment, control activities, information and communication, and internal supervision" and seven control measures of"separate control of incompatible functions, authorization and approval control, accounting system control, property protection control, budget control, operation analysis control and performance appraisal control", is gradually establishing and improving an internal control system featuring organizational structure, development strategy, human resources, social responsibility, corporate culture, financial activities, procurement business sales business, research and development, financial reports, comprehensive budget, contract management, internal information transfer and information system and other contents, and it is formulating the internal control system applicable to the whole company and organizing related implementation in accordance with relevant laws and regulations and supporting measures..

 

By the end of the fiscal year ending June 30, 2020, we have established a Risk Control Department led by the internal control director and a team of legal counsels to ensure the Company’s compliance with relevant regulations and risk management requirements; we also formulated new policies or integrate a series of internal control policies, including but not limited to the process from procurement to payment, the process from payment to the sales, cash management, cost management, budget process, accounts receivable policy, assets and inventory management, internal audit policy and cost accounting, etc., and we provided training for our employees, such as the Finance Department, Marketing Department, and senior executives; we set the International Affair Department to strengthen our compliance and financing management on the international capital market; and we also employed a new legal counsel in China to enhance the Company's operational compliance on the Chinese market.

Our compliance with complicated U.S. regulations concerning corporate governance and public disclosure will result in additional expenses. Moreover, our ability to comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations is uncertain given our management’s relative inexperience with operating U.S. public companies. 

 

As a public company, we are facing with expensive, complicated and evolving disclosure, governance and compliance laws, regulations and standards relating to corporate governance and public disclosure, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act and the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. New or changing laws, regulations and standards are subject to varying interpretations in many cases due to their lack of specificity, and, as a result, their application in practice may evolve over time as new guidance is provided by regulatory and governing bodies, which could result in continuing uncertainty regarding compliance matters and higher costs necessitated by ongoing revisions to disclosure and governance practices. As a result, our efforts to comply with evolving laws, regulations and standards of a U.S. public company are likely to continue to result in increased general and administrative expenses and a diversion of management time and attention from revenue-generating activities to compliance activities.

 

Moreover, our executive officers have little experience in operating a U.S. public company, which makes our ability to comply with applicable laws, rules and regulations uncertain. Our failure to comply with all laws, rules and regulations applicable to U.S. public companies could subject us or our management to regulatory scrutiny or sanction, which could harm our reputation and stock price.

 

Failure to comply with the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act could adversely affect our business.

 

We are required to comply with the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (or FCPA), which prohibits U.S. companies from engaging in bribery or other prohibited payments to foreign officials for the purpose of obtaining or retaining business. Foreign companies, including some of our competitors, are not subject to these prohibitions. Corruption, extortion, bribery, pay-offs, theft and other fraudulent practices occur from time-to-time in mainland China. If our competitors engage in these practices, they may receive preferential treatment from personnel of other companies or government agencies, giving our competitors an advantage in securing business or from government officials who might give them priority in obtaining new licenses, which would put us at a disadvantage.  

 

We have operations, agreements with third parties, and make sales in China. Companies with operations in China have been accused and found guilty of sales practices that involve unlawful activity, including violations of the FCPA. We believe to date we have complied in all material respects with the provisions of the FCPA. However, our existing safeguards and any future improvements may prove to be less than effective, and the employees, consultants and/or distributors of our Company may engage in conduct for which we might be held responsible. Violations of the FCPA may result in severe criminal or civil sanctions, and we may be subject to other liabilities, which could negatively affect our business, operating results and financial condition. In addition, the government may seek to hold our Company liable for successor liability FCPA violations committed by companies in which we invest or that we acquire.

 

- 26 -

 

 

We may be subject to liability if private information that we receive is not secure or if we violate privacy laws and regulations.

 

Because we store, process and use data, some of which contain personal information, we are subject to complex and evolving federal, state and foreign laws and regulations regarding privacy, data protection and other matters. Many of these laws and regulations are subject to constant evolvement and change and uncertain interpretation. Any violation of these laws could result in investigations, claims, changes to our business practices, increased cost of operations and declines in user growth, retention or engagement, any of which could materially adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition. 

 

In November 2016, the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress passed China’s first cybersecurity law, or CSL, which took effect in June 2017. The CSL systematically lays out cybersecurity and data protection regulatory requirements and subjects many previously under-regulated or unregulated activities in cyberspace and data management to government scrutiny. The costs of compliance with and other burdens imposed by CSL may limit the use and adoption of our products and services and could have an adverse impact on our business.

 

The European Union General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”), which came into effect on May 25, 2018, includes operational requirements for companies that receive or process personal data of residents of the European Economic Area. The GDPR establishes new requirements applicable to the processing of personal data (i.e., data which identifies an individual or from which an individual is identifiable), affords new data protection rights to individuals (e.g., the right to erasure of personal data) and imposes penalties for serious data breaches. Individuals also have a right to compensation under the GDPR for financial or non-financial losses. Although we do not conduct any business in the European Economic Area, in the event that residents of the European Economic Area access our website and input protected information, we may become subject to provisions of the GDPR. Compliance with the GDPR will impose additional responsibilities and liabilities in relation to our processing of personal data. The GDPR may require us to change our policies and procedures and, if we are not compliant, could materially adversely affect our business, results of operations and financial condition.

 

We are also subject to laws restricting disclosure of information relating to our employees. We strive to comply with all applicable laws, policies, legal obligations, and industry codes of conduct relating to privacy, data security, cybersecurity and data protection. However, given that the scope, interpretation, and application of these laws and regulations are often uncertain and may be conflicting, it is possible that these obligations may be interpreted and applied in a manner that is inconsistent from one jurisdiction to another and may conflict with other rules or our practices. Any failure or perceived failure by us or our third-party service-providers to comply with our privacy or security policies or privacy-related legal obligations, or any compromise of security that results in the unauthorized release or transfer of personally identifiable information or other user data, may result in governmental enforcement actions, litigation, or negative publicity, and could have an adverse effect on our business and operating results.

Risks Relating to Our Corporate Structure

 

Our corporate structure, in particular, our Variable Interest Entities (or VIE), and their Agreements (or VIE Agreements), are subject to significant risks, as set forth in the following risk factors.

 

We depend upon the VIE Agreements in conducting our business in the PRC, which may not be as effective as direct ownership.

 

Our affiliation with Shuhai Beijing is managed through the VIE Agreements, which agreements may not be as effective in providing us with control over Shuhai Beijing as direct ownership. The VIE Agreements are governed by and would be interpreted in accordance with the PRC laws. They also provide for the resolution of disputes through arbitration pursuant to PRC laws. If Shuhai Beijing fails to perform the obligations under the VIE Agreements, we may have to rely on legal remedies under the PRC law, including seeking specific performance or injunctive relief, and claiming damages. There is a risk that we may be unable to obtain any of these remedies.The uncertainties in the PRC laws concerning VIE structure could limit our ability to enforce the VIE Agreements, or could effect the validity of the VIE Agreements.

 

We may not be able to consolidate the financial results of some of our affiliated companies or such consolidation could materially adversely affect our operating results and financial condition.

 

All of our business is conducted through Shuhai Beijing, which is considered a VIE for accounting purposes, and we are considered the primary beneficiary, thus enabling us to consolidate our financial results in our consolidated financial statements. In the event that in the future a company we hold as a VIE no longer meets the definition of a VIE under applicable accounting rules, or we are deemed not to be the primary beneficiary, we would not be able to consolidate line by line that entity’s financial results in our consolidated financial statements for reporting purposes. Also, if in the future an affiliate company becomes a VIE and we become the primary beneficiary, we would be required to consolidate that entity’s financial results in our consolidated financial statements for accounting purposes. If such entity’s financial results were negative, this would have a corresponding negative impact on our operating results for reporting purposes.

 

Because we rely on the Operation and Intellectual Property Service Agreement with Shuhai Beijing for our revenue, the termination of this agreement would severely and detrimentally affect our continuing business viability under our current corporate structure.

 

We are a holding company and all of our business operations are conducted through the VIE Agreements. As a result, our revenues mainly rely on dividend payments from Tianjin Information after it receives payments from Shuhai Beijing pursuant to the Operation and Intellectual Property Service Agreement. Shuhai Beijing may terminate the Operation and Intellectual Property Service Agreement for any or no reason at all. Because neither we, nor our subsidiaries, own equity interests of Shuhai Beijing, the termination of the Operation and Intellectual Property Service Agreement would sever our ability to continue receiving payments from Shuhai Beijing under our current holding company structure. While we are currently not aware of any event or reason that may cause the Operation and Intellectual Property Service Agreement to terminate, we cannot assure you that such an event or reason will not occur in the future. In the event that the Operation and Intellectual Property Service Agreement is terminated, this would have a severe and detrimental effect on our continuing business viability under our current corporate structure, which, in turn, may affect the value of your investment. 

 

- 28 -

 

 

Contractual arrangements entered into by our subsidiary and our PRC operating affiliate may be subject to scrutiny by the PRC tax authorities. Such scrutiny may lead to additional tax liability and fines, which would hinder our ability to achieve or maintain profitability.

 

Under PRC law, arrangements and transactions among related parties may be subject to audit or challenge by the PRC tax authorities. If any of the transactions entered into by our subsidiary and our PRC operating affiliate are found not to have been conducted on an arm’s-length basis or to result in an unreasonable reduction in tax under PRC law, the PRC tax authorities have the authority to disallow tax savings, adjust the profits and losses of our respective PRC entities and assess late payment interest and penalties. 

 

We conduct our business through Shuhai Beijing by means of VIE Agreements. If the PRC courts or administrative authorities determine that these contractual arrangements do not comply with applicable regulations, we could be subject to severe penalties and our business could be adversely affected. In addition, changes in such PRC laws and regulations may materially and adversely affect our business. 

 

There are uncertainties regarding the interpretation and application of PRC laws, rules and regulations, including but not limited to the laws, rules and regulations governing the validity and enforcement of the contractual arrangements between Tianjin Information and Shuhai Beijing. We have been advised by our PRC counsel, Jingtian & Gongcheng, based on their understanding of the current PRC laws, rules and regulations, that (i) the structure for operating our business in China (including our corporate structure and contractual arrangements with Shuhai Beijing and its shareholders) will not result in any violation of PRC laws or regulations currently in effect; and (ii) the contractual arrangements among Tianjin Information and Shuhai Beijing and its shareholders governed by PRC law are valid, binding and enforceable, and will not result in any violation of PRC laws or regulations currently in effect. However, there are substantial uncertainties regarding the interpretation and application of current or future PRC laws and regulations concerning foreign investment in the PRC, and their application to and effect on the legality, binding effect and enforceability of the contractual arrangements. In particular, we cannot rule out the possibility that PRC regulatory authorities, courts or arbitral tribunals may in the future adopt a different or contrary interpretation or take a view that is inconsistent with the opinion of our PRC legal counsel.

 

If any of our PRC entities or their ownership structure or the contractual arrangements are determined to be in violation of any existing or future PRC laws, rules or regulations, or any of our PRC entities fail to obtain or maintain any of the required governmental permits or approvals, the relevant PRC regulatory authorities would have broad discretion in dealing with such violations, including:

 

revoking the business and operating licenses;

 

discontinuing or restricting the operations;

 

imposing conditions or requirements with which the PRC entities may not be able to comply;

 

requiring us and our PRC entities to restructure the relevant ownership structure or operations;

 

restricting or prohibiting our use of the proceeds from our 2018 offering to finance our business and operations in China; or

 

imposing fines.

 

The imposition of any of these penalties would severely disrupt our ability to conduct business and have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations and prospects. 

 

Although the content about VIE structure has been deleted from the Foreign Investment Law implemented since January 1, 2020, the disputes over VIE structure still exists and are left to be settled through legislative authorization. After that, the nature and attributes of VIE structure may still be brought into the supervision category of "foreign investment" in future through other specific laws, administrative regulations and normative documents formulated by the State Council. Moreover, relevant supervision will be strengthened while the pre-establishment national treatment & negative list system would not be excluded for foreign investment, which is expected to cast significant impact upon our operation and management.

The shareholders of our VIE may have potential conflicts of interest with us, which may materially and adversely affect our business and financial condition.

 

Ms. Zhixin Liu and Mr. Fu Liu are majority shareholders of our Company and the shareholders of our VIE, Shuhai Beijing. Ms. Liu is our Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, President, Interim-CFO, Secretary and Treasurer, while Mr. Liu is one of our directors. They may have potential conflicts of interest with us. These shareholders may breach, or cause our VIE to breach, or refuse to renew, the existing contractual arrangements we have with them and our VIE, which would have a material and adverse effect on our ability to effectively control our VIE and receive substantially all the economic benefits from it. For example, the shareholders may be able to cause our agreements with Shuhai Beijing to be performed in a manner adverse to us by, among other things, failing to remit payments due under the contractual arrangements to us on a timely basis. We cannot assure you that when conflicts of interest arise, any or all of these shareholders will act in the best interests of our company or such conflicts will be resolved in our favor.

 

Currently, we do not have any arrangements to address potential conflicts of interest between these shareholders and our company. We rely on Ms. Liu and Mr. Liu to abide by the laws of the State of Nevada and China, which provide that directors owe a fiduciary duty to the Company that requires them to act in good faith and in what they believe to be the best interests of the Company and not to use their position for personal gains. If we cannot resolve any conflict of interest or dispute between us and the shareholders of Shuhai Beijing, we would have to rely on legal proceedings, which could result in disruption of our business and subject us to substantial uncertainty as to the outcome of any such legal proceedings. 

 

If any of our affiliated entities becomes the subject of a bankruptcy or liquidation proceeding, we may lose the ability to use and enjoy assets held by such entity, which could materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

We currently conduct our operations in China through contractual arrangements with our affiliated entities. As part of these arrangements, substantially all of our assets that are important to the operation of our business are held by our affiliated entities. If any of these entities goes bankrupt and all or part of their assets become subject to liens or rights of third-party creditors, we may be unable to continue some or all of our business activities, which could materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations. If any of our affiliated entities undergoes a voluntary or involuntary liquidation proceeding, its equity owner or unrelated third-party creditors may claim rights relating to some or all of these assets, which would hinder our ability to operate our business and could materially and adversely affect our business, our ability to generate revenue and the market price of our common stock. 

 

We are a “controlled company” within the meaning of the NASDAQ Stock Market Rules and, as a result, may rely on exemptions from certain corporate governance requirements that provide protection to shareholders of other companies.

 

We are a “controlled company” as defined under the NASDAQ Stock Market Rules because Mr. Liu and Ms. Liu hold more than 50% of our voting power. For so long as we remain a controlled company under that definition, we are permitted to elect to rely, and will rely, on certain exemptions from the obligation to comply with certain corporate governance requirements, including:

 

the requirement that our director nominees must be selected or recommended solely by independent directors; and

 

the requirement that we have a corporate governance and nominating committee that is composed entirely of independent directors with a written charter addressing the committee’s purpose and responsibilities.

 

As a result, you will not have the same protections afforded to shareholders of companies that are subject to all of the corporate governance requirements of the NASDAQ Stock Market.

Risks Associated With Doing Business in China  

 

Changes in the policies of the PRC government could have a significant impact upon the business we may be able to conduct in the PRC and the profitability of our business.

 

The PRC’s economy is in a transition from a planned economy to a market-oriented economy subject to five-year and annual plans adopted by the government that set national economic development goals. Policies of the PRC government can have significant effects on the economic conditions within the PRC. The PRC government has confirmed that economic development will follow the model of a market economy. Under this direction, we believe that the PRC will continue to strengthen its economic and trading relationships with foreign countries and business development in the PRC will follow market forces. While we believe that this trend will continue, there can be no assurance that this will be the case. A change in policies by the PRC government could adversely affect our interests by, among other factors: changes in laws, regulations or the interpretation thereof, confiscatory taxation, restrictions on currency conversion, imports or sources of supplies, or the expropriation or nationalization of private enterprises. Although the PRC government has been pursuing economic reform policies for more than two decades, there is no assurance that the government will continue to pursue such policies or that such policies may not be significantly altered, especially in the event of a change in leadership, social or political disruption, or other circumstances affecting the PRC’s political, economic and social environment.

 

A slowdown or other adverse developments in the PRC economy may harm our customers and the demand for our services and our products.

 

All of our operations are conducted in the PRC. Although the PRC economy has grown significantly in recent years, there is no assurance that this growth will continue. A slowdown in overall economic growth, an economic downturn, a recession or other adverse economic developments in the PRC could significantly reduce the demand for our products and services.

 

If relations between the United States and China worsen, investors may be unwilling to hold or buy our stock and our stock price may decrease.

 

At various times during recent years, the United States and China have had significant disagreements over political and economic issues. Controversies may arise in the future between these two countries that may affect our economic outlook both in the United States and in China. Any political or trade controversies between the United States and China, whether or not directly related to our business, could reduce the price of our common stock.

 

Future inflation in China may inhibit the profitability of our business in China.

 

In recent years, the Chinese economy has experienced periods of rapid expansion and high rates of inflation. Rapid economic growth can lead to growth in the money supply and rising inflation. If prices for our services and products rise at a rate that is insufficient to compensate for the rise in the costs of supplies, it may have an adverse effect on profitability. These factors have led to the adoption by Chinese government, from time to time, of various corrective measures designed to restrict the availability of credit or regulate growth and contain inflation. High inflation may in the future cause the Chinese government to impose controls on credit and/or prices, or to take other action, which could inhibit economic activity in China, and thereby harm the market for our services and products.

The fluctuation of the Renminbi may have a material adverse effect on your investment.

 

The change in value of the Renminbi against the U.S. dollar and other currencies is affected by, various factors, such as changes in China’s political and economic conditions. On July 21, 2005, the PRC government changed its decade-old policy of pegging the value of the Renminbi to the U.S. dollar. Under such policy, the Renminbi was permitted to fluctuate within a narrow and managed band against a basket of certain foreign currencies. Later on, the People’s Bank of China has decided to further implement the reform of the RMB exchange regime and to enhance the flexibility of RMB exchange rates. Such changes in policy have resulted in a significant appreciation of the Renminbi against the U.S. dollar since 2005. There remains significant international pressure on the PRC government to adopt a more flexible currency policy, which could result in a further and more significant adjustment of the Renminbi against the U.S. dollar. Any significant appreciation or revaluation of the Renminbi may have a material adverse effect on the value of, and any dividends payable on, shares of our common stock in foreign currency terms. More specifically, if we decide to convert our Renminbi into U.S. dollars, appreciation of the U.S. dollar against the Renminbi would have a negative effect on the U.S. dollar amount available to us. To the extent that we need to convert U.S. dollars we receive from our 2018 offering into Renminbi for our operations, appreciation of the Renminbi against the U.S. dollar would have an adverse effect on the Renminbi amount we would receive from the conversion. In addition, appreciation or depreciation in the exchange rate of the Renminbi to the U.S. dollar could materially and adversely affect the price of shares of our common stock in U.S. dollars without giving effect to any underlying change in our business or results of operations. 

 

Restrictions on currency exchange may limit our ability to receive and use our revenue effectively.

 

Substantially all of our revenue is denominated in Renminbi. As a result, restrictions on currency exchange may limit our ability to use revenue generated in Renminbi to fund any business activities we may have outside China in the future or to make dividend payments to our shareholders in U.S. dollars. Under current PRC laws and regulations, Renminbi is freely convertible for current account items, such as trade and service-related foreign exchange transactions and dividend distributions. However, Renminbi is not freely convertible for direct investment or loans or investments in securities outside China, unless such use is approved by SAFE. For example, foreign exchange transactions under our subsidiary’s capital account, including principal payments in respect of foreign currency-denominated obligations, remain subject to significant foreign exchange controls and the approval requirement of SAFE. These limitations could affect our ability to convert Renminbi into foreign currency for capital expenditures.

 

Our subsidiaries and affiliated entities in China are subject to restrictions on making dividends and other payments to us. 

 

We are a holding company and rely principally on dividends paid by our subsidiary in China for our cash needs, including paying dividends and other cash distributions to our shareholders to the extent we choose to do so, servicing any debt we may incur and paying our operating expenses. Tianjin Information’s income in turn depends on the service fees paid by our affiliated entities in China. Current PRC regulations permit our subsidiary in China to pay dividends to us only out of its accumulated profits, if any, determined in accordance with Chinese accounting standards and regulations. Under the applicable requirements of PRC law, Tianjin Information may only distribute dividends after it has made allowances to fund certain statutory reserves. These reserves are not distributable as cash dividends. In addition, if our subsidiaries or our affiliated entities in China incur debt on their own behalf in the future, the instruments governing the debt may restrict their ability to pay dividends or make other payments to us. Any such restrictions may materially affect such entities’ ability to make dividends or make payments, in service fees or otherwise, to us, which may materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations.

Uncertainties with respect to the PRC legal system could have a material adverse effect on us 

 

The PRC legal system is a civil law system based on written statutes. Unlike the common law system, prior court decisions in a civil law system may be cited as reference but have limited precedential value. Since 1979, newly introduced PRC laws and regulations have significantly enhanced the protections of interest relating to foreign investments in China. However, since these laws and regulations are relatively new and the PRC legal system continues to evolve rapidly, the interpretations of such laws and regulations may not always be consistent, and enforcement of these laws and regulations involves significant uncertainties, any of which could limit the available legal protections. In addition, the PRC administrative and judicial authorities have significant discretion in interpreting, implementing or enforcing statutory rules and contractual terms, and it may be more difficult to predict the outcome of administrative and judicial proceedings and the level of legal protection we may enjoy in the PRC than under some more developed legal systems. These uncertainties may affect our decisions on the policies and actions to be taken to comply with PRC laws and regulations, and may affect our ability to enforce our contractual or tort rights. In addition, the regulatory uncertainties may be exploited through unmerited legal actions or threats in an attempt to extract payments or benefits from us. Such uncertainties may therefore increase our operating expenses and costs, and materially and adversely affect our business and results of operations. 

 

The PRC’s legal and judicial system may not adequately protect our business and operations and the rights of foreign investors.

 

The legal and judicial systems in the PRC are still rudimentary, and enforcement of existing laws is uncertain. As a result, it may be impossible to obtain swift and equitable enforcement of laws that do exist, or to obtain enforcement of the judgment of one court by a court of another jurisdiction. The PRC’s legal system is based on the civil law regime, that is, it is based on written statutes. A decision by one judge does not set a legal precedent that is required to be followed by judges in other cases. In addition, the interpretation of Chinese laws may be varied to reflect domestic political changes. 

 

The promulgation of new laws, changes to existing laws and the pre-emption of local regulations by national laws may adversely affect foreign investors. There can be no assurance that a change in leadership, social or political disruption, or unforeseen circumstances affecting the PRC’s political, economic or social life, will not affect the PRC government’s ability to continue to support and pursue these reforms. Such a shift could have a material adverse effect on our business and prospects. 

 

Because our principal assets are located outside of the United States and all of our directors and officers reside outside the United States, it may be difficult for you to enforce your rights based on U.S. federal securities laws against us and our officers and directors in the U.S. or to enforce a U.S. court judgment against us or them in the PRC. 

 

Our directors and officers reside outside the United States. In addition, our operating subsidiaries are located in the PRC and substantially all of their assets are located outside of the United States. It may therefore be difficult for investors in the United States to enforce their legal rights against us based on the civil liability provisions of the U.S. federal securities laws against us in the courts of either the U.S. or the PRC and, even if civil judgments are obtained in U.S. courts, it may be difficult to enforce such judgments in PRC courts.

Certain PRC regulations, including the M&A Rules and national security regulations, may require a complicated review and approval process which could make it more difficult for us to pursue growth through acquisitions in China.

 

The M&A Rules established additional procedures and requirements that could make merger and acquisition activities in China by foreign investors more time-consuming and complex. For example, the MOFCOM must be notified in the event a foreign investor takes control of a PRC domestic enterprise. In addition, certain acquisitions of domestic companies by offshore companies that are related to or affiliated with the same entities or individuals of the domestic companies, are subject to approval by the MOFCOM. In addition, the Implementing Rules Concerning Security Review on Mergers and Acquisitions by Foreign Investors of Domestic Enterprises, issued by the MOFCOM in August 2011, require that mergers and acquisitions by foreign investors in “any industry with national security concerns” be subject to national security review by the MOFCOM. In addition, any activities attempting to circumvent such review process, including structuring the transaction through a proxy or contractual control arrangement, are strictly prohibited. There is significant uncertainty regarding the interpretation and implementation of these regulations relating to merger and acquisition activities in China. In addition, complying with these requirements could be time-consuming, and the required notification, review or approval process may materially delay or affect our ability to complete merger and acquisition transactions in China. As a result, our ability to seek growth through acquisitions may be materially and adversely affected. In addition, if the MOFCOM determines that we should have obtained its approval for our entry into contractual arrangements with our affiliated entities, we may be required to file for remedial approvals. There is no assurance that we would be able to obtain such approval from the MOFCOM. We may also be subject to administrative fines or penalties by the MOFCOM that may require us to limit our business operations in the PRC, delay or restrict the conversion and remittance of our funds in foreign currencies into the PRC or take other actions that could have material and adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 

PRC regulation of loans and direct investment by offshore holding companies to PRC entities may delay or prevent us from making loans or additional capital contributions to our PRC subsidiary and affiliated entities, which could harm our liquidity and our ability to fund and expand our business.

 

As an offshore holding company of our PRC subsidiary, we may (i) make loans to our PRC subsidiary and affiliated entities, (ii) make additional capital contributions to our PRC subsidiary, (iii) establish new PRC subsidiaries and make capital contributions to these new PRC subsidiaries, and (iv) acquire offshore entities with business operations in China in an offshore transaction. However, most of these uses are subject to PRC regulations and approvals. For example:

 

loans by us to our wholly-owned subsidiary in China, which is a foreign-invested enterprise, cannot exceed statutory limits and must be registered with the State Administration of Foreign Exchange of the PRC (or SAFE) or its local counterparts;

 

loans by us to our affiliated entities, which are domestic PRC entities, over a certain threshold must be approved by the relevant government authorities and must also be registered with SAFE or its local counterparts; and

 

capital contributions to our wholly-owned subsidiary must file a record with the MOFCOM or its local counterparts and shall also be limited to the difference between the registered capital and the total investment amount.

 

We cannot assure you that we will be able to obtain these government registrations or filings on a timely basis, or at all. If we fail to finish such registrations or filings, our ability to use the proceeds from our 2018 offering and to capitalize our PRC subsidiary’s operations may be adversely affected, which could adversely affect our liquidity and our ability to fund and expand our business.

 

On March 30, 2015, the State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) promulgated a notice relating to the administration of foreign-invested company of its capital contribution in foreign currency into Renminbi (Hui Fa [2015]19) (or Circular 19). Although Circular 19 has fastened the administration relating to the settlement of exchange of foreign-investment, allows the foreign-invested company to settle the exchange on a voluntary basis, it still requires that the bank review the authenticity and compliance of a foreign-invested company’s settlement of exchange in previous time, and the settled in Renminbi converted from foreign currencies shall deposit on the foreign exchange settlement account, and shall not be used for several purposes as listed in the “negative list”. As a result, the notice may limit our ability to transfer funds to our operations in China through our PRC subsidiary, which may affect our ability to expand our business. Meanwhile, the foreign exchange policy is unpredictable in China, it shall be various with the nationwide economic pattern, the strict foreign exchange policy may have an adverse impact in our capital cash and may limit our business expansion.  

 

- 34 -

 

 

Governmental control of the convertibility of Renminbi and restrictions on the transfer of cash into and out of China may constrain our liquidity and adversely affect our ability to use cash in our operation.

 

The PRC government also imposes controls on the convertibility of the Renminbi into foreign currencies. Under existing PRC foreign exchange regulations, payments of current account items, including profit distributions, interest payments and expenditures from trade-related transactions, can be made in foreign currencies without prior approval from SAFE, by complying with certain procedural requirements. Approvals from appropriate government authorities is required where Renminbi is to be converted into foreign currency and remitted out of China to pay capital expenses such as the repayment of loans denominated in foreign currencies. The PRC government may, at its discretion, impose any restriction on access of foreign currencies for current account transactions.

 

As an offshore holding company of our PRC subsidiary, the majority of our income is received in Renminbi. If the PRC government imposes restrictions on access of foreign currencies for current account transactions, we may not be able to pay dividends in foreign currencies to our shareholders.

 

A failure by the beneficial owners of our shares who are PRC residents to comply with certain PRC foreign exchange regulations could restrict our ability to distribute profits, restrict our overseas and cross-border investment activities and subject us to liability under PRC law. 

 

SAFE has promulgated regulations, including the Notice on Relevant Issues Relating to Domestic Residents’ Investment and Financing and Round-Trip Investment through Special Purpose Vehicles (or SAFE Circular No. 37), effective on July 4, 2014, and its appendices, that require PRC residents, including PRC institutions and individuals, to register with local branches of SAFE in connection with their direct establishment or indirect control of an offshore entity, for the purpose of overseas investment and financing, with such PRC residents’ legally owned assets or equity interests in domestic enterprises or offshore assets or interests, referred to in SAFE Circular No. 37 as a “special purpose vehicle.” SAFE Circular No. 37 further requires amendment to the registration in the event of any significant changes with respect to the special purpose vehicle, such as increase or decrease of capital contributed by PRC individuals, share transfer or exchange, merger, division or other material event. In the event that a PRC shareholder holding interests in a special purpose vehicle fails to fulfill the required SAFE registration, the PRC subsidiaries of that special purpose vehicle may be prohibited from making profit distributions to the offshore parent and from carrying out subsequent cross-border foreign exchange activities, and the special purpose vehicle may be restricted in its ability to contribute additional capital into its PRC subsidiary. Further, failure to comply with the various SAFE registration requirements described above could result in liability under PRC law for foreign exchange evasion.

 

These regulations apply to our direct and indirect shareholders who are PRC residents and may apply to any offshore acquisitions or share transfers that we make in the future if our shares are issued to PRC residents. However, in practice, different local SAFE branches may have different views and procedures on the application and implementation of SAFE regulations, and since SAFE Circular No. 37 was relatively new, there remains uncertainty with respect to its implementation. As of the date of this report, all PRC residents known to us that currently hold direct or indirect interests in our company have completed the necessary registrations with SAFE as required by SAFE Circular 37. However, we may not be informed of the identities of all the PRC residents or entities holding direct or indirect interest in our company, nor can we compel our beneficial owners to comply with the requirements of SAFE Circular 37.  However, we cannot assure you that these individuals or any other direct or indirect shareholders or beneficial owners of our company who are PRC residents will be able to successfully complete the registration or update the registration of their direct and indirect equity interest as required in the future. If they fail to make or update the registration, our shareholders could be subject to fines and legal penalties, and SAFE could restrict our cross-border investment activities and our foreign exchange activities, including restricting our PRC subsidiary’s ability to distribute dividends to, or obtain loans denominated in foreign currencies from, our company, or prevent us from paying dividends. As a result, our business operations and our ability to make distributions to you could be materially and adversely affected.

We may be subject to fine due to our insufficient payment of the social insurance and housing fund of the employees.

 

Pursuant to the Social Insurance Law of the PRC, as amended on December 29, 2018,and the Regulation on the Administration of Housing Accumulation Funds, as amended on March 24, 2019, employers in China shall register with relevant social insurance agency and relevant housing provident fund management center and open special housing provident fund accounts for each of their employees, and pay contributions to the social insurance plan and the housing provident fund for their employees, such contribution amount payable shall be calculated based on the employee’s actual salary in accordance with the relevant regulations. In case the employer failed to make sufficient payment of the social insurance, it may be subject to fine up to 3 times of the insufficient amount. If the employer failed to register with relevant housing provident fund management center or failed to open special housing provident fund accounts for the employees within the ordered time limit, a fine of not less than RMB10,000 nor more than RMB50,000 may be imposed. In addition, if the employer fails to pay sufficient contributions to housing provident fund as required, the housing provident fund management center shall order it to make the payment and deposit within a prescribed time limit; where the payment has not been made after the expiration of the time limit, the housing provident fund management center may request the people’s court for compulsory enforcement. On July 20, 2018, the General Office of the Communist Party of China and the General Office of the State Council jointly issued the Reform Plan on Tax Collection and Administration Systems for Local Offices of the State Administration of Taxation and Local Taxation Bureaus, according to which the collection and administration of social insurance will be transferred from the social insurance departments to competent tax authorities, and the supervision over the payment of social insurance will be significantly strengthened in the way that an enterprise must pay social insurance for its employees based on their overall salary at certain legally required rates. If we are fined due to insufficient payment of the social insurance and housing fund of the employees, our business operations could be materially and adversely affected.

 

You may face difficulties in protecting your interests and exercising your rights as a stockholder of ours since we conduct substantially all of our operations in China and all of our officers and directors reside in China.

 

We conduct substantially all of our operations in China through Shuhai Beijing, our consolidated VIE in China. All of our current officers and directors reside outside the United States and substantially all of the assets of those persons are located outside of the United States. Because of this factor, it may be difficult for you to conduct due diligence on our company, our executive officers or directors and attend stockholder meetings if the meetings are held in China. As a result, our public stockholders may have more difficulty in protecting their interests through actions against our management, directors or major stockholders than would stockholders of a corporation doing business entirely or predominantly within the United States.

 

You may experience difficulties in protecting your rights through the United States courts.

 

Currently, substantially all of our operations are conducted in China and substantially all of our assets are located in China. All of our officers are nationals or residents of the PRC and a substantial portion of their assets are located outside the United States. As a result, it may be difficult for a stockholder to effect service of process within the United States upon these persons, or to enforce judgments against us which are obtained in United States courts, including judgments predicated upon the civil liability provisions of the securities laws of the United States or any state in the United States.

 

In addition, it may be difficult or impossible for you to effect service of process within the United States upon us our directors and officers in the event that you believe that your rights have been violated under United States securities laws or otherwise. Even if you are successful in effecting service of process and bringing an action of this kind, the laws of China may render you unable to enforce a judgment against our assets or the assets of our directors and officers. There is no statutory recognition in the PRC of judgments obtained in the United States.

 

Increases in labor costs in the PRC may adversely affect our business and our profitability.

 

The economy of China has been experiencing significant growth, leading to inflation and increased labor costs. China’s overall economy and the average wage in the PRC are expected to continue to grow. Future increases in China’s inflation and material increases in the cost of labor may materially and adversely affect our profitability and results of operations.

To the extent that our independent registered public accounting firm’s audit documentation related to their audit reports for our company are located in China, the PCAOB may not be able inspect such audit documentation and, as such, you may be deprived of the benefits of such inspection.

 

Our independent registered public accounting firm issued an audit opinion on the financial statements included in this report filed with the SEC and will issue audit reports related to our company in the future. As auditors of companies that are traded publicly in the United States and a firm registered with the PCAOB, our auditor is required by the laws of the United States to undergo regular inspections by the PCAOB. However, to the extent that our auditor’s work papers are or become located in China, such work papers will not be subject to inspection by the PCAOB because the PCAOB is currently unable to conduct inspections without the approval of the Chinese authorities. Inspections of certain other firms that the PCAOB has conducted outside of China have identified deficiencies in those firms’ audit procedures and quality control procedures, which may be addressed as part of the inspection process to improve future audit quality. The inability of the PCAOB to conduct inspections of our auditors’ work papers in China would make it more difficult to evaluate the effectiveness of our auditor’s audit procedures or quality control procedures as compared to auditors outside of China that are subject to PCAOB inspections. Investors may consequently lose confidence in our reported financial information and procedures and the quality of our financial statements. As a result, our investors may be deprived of the benefits of PCAOB’s oversight of our auditors through such inspections. 

 

We may be subject to intellectual property infringement claims, which may force us to incur substantial legal expenses and, if determined adversely to us, materially disrupt our business.

 

Internet and technology companies are frequently involved in litigation based on allegations of infringement of intellectual property rights, unfair competition, invasion of privacy, defamation and other violations of third-party rights. The validity, enforceability and scope of protection of intellectual property in Internet-related industries, particularly in China, are uncertain and still evolving. In addition, many parties are actively developing and seeking protection for Internet-related technologies, including seeking patent protection. There may be patents issued or pending that are held by others that cover significant aspects of our technologies, products, business methods or services. As we face increasing competition and as litigation becomes more common in China in resolving commercial disputes, we face a higher risk of being the subject of intellectual property infringement claims.

 

In particular, if we are found to have violated the intellectual property rights of others, we may be enjoined from using such intellectual property, may be ordered to pay damages or fines, and may incur licensing fees or be forced to develop alternatives. We may incur substantial expense in defending against third party infringement claims, regardless of their merit. Successful infringement claims against us may result in substantial monetary liability or may materially disrupt the conduct of our business by restricting or prohibiting our use of the intellectual property in question. Any intellectual property litigation could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or results of operations

Risks Relating to Our an Investment in Our Common Stock 

 

Our majority stockholders will control our Company for the foreseeable future, including the outcome of matters requiring shareholder approval.

 

Our officers and directors collectively hold approximately 71.6% beneficial ownership of our Company. Two directors are members of the same family. As a result, such individuals will have the ability, acting together, to control the election of our directors and the outcome of corporate actions requiring shareholder approval, such as: (i) a merger or a sale of our Company, (ii) a sale of all or substantially all of our assets, and (iii) amendments to our articles of incorporation and bylaws. This concentration of voting power and control could have a significant effect in delaying, deferring or preventing an action that might otherwise be beneficial to our other shareholders and be disadvantageous to our shareholders with interests different from those individuals. These individuals also have significant control over our business, policies and affairs as officers and directors of our Company. Therefore, you should not invest in reliance on your ability to have any control over our Company.

 

An active and visible trading market for our common stock may not develop.

 

We cannot predict whether an active market for our common stock will develop in the future. In the absence of an active trading market:

 

Investors may have difficulty buying and selling or obtaining market quotations;

 

Market visibility for our common stock may be limited; and

 

A lack of visibility for our common stock may have a depressive effect on the market price for our common stock.

 

The trading price of our common stock is subject to significant fluctuations in response to variations in quarterly operating results, changes in analysts’ earnings estimates, announcements of innovations by us or our competitors, general conditions in the industry in which we operate and other factors. These fluctuations, as well as general economic and market conditions, may have a material or adverse effect on the market price of our common stock.

 

- 38 -

 

 

The market price for our common stock may be volatile.

 

The market price for our common stock may be volatile and subject to wide fluctuations due to factors such as:

 

 

the perception of U.S. investors and regulators of U.S. listed Chinese companies;
     
  actual or anticipated fluctuations in our quarterly operating results;
     
  changes in financial estimates by securities research analysts;
     
  negative publicity, studies or reports;
     
  conditions in Chinese and global cybersecurity product markets;
     
  our capability to match and compete with technology innovations in the industry;
     
  changes in the economic performance or market valuations of other companies in the same industry;
     
  announcements by us or our competitors of acquisitions, strategic partnerships, joint ventures or capital commitments;
     
 

addition or departure of key personnel;

     
  fluctuations of exchange rates between RMB and the U.S. dollar; and
     
  general economic or political conditions in or impacting China.

 

In addition, the securities market has from time to time experienced significant price and volume fluctuations that are not related to the operating performance of particular companies. These market fluctuations may also materially and adversely affect the market price of our common stock.

 

Our common stock is thinly traded and you may be unable to sell at or near ask prices or at all if you need to sell your shares to raise money or otherwise desire to liquidate your shares.

 

Our common stock is “thinly-traded,” meaning that the number of persons interested in purchasing our common stock at or near bid prices at any given time may be relatively small or non-existent. This situation may be attributable to a number of factors, including the fact that we are relatively unknown to stock analysts, stock brokers, institutional investors and others in the investment community that generate or influence sales volume, and that even if we came to the attention of such persons, they tend to be risk-averse and might be reluctant to follow an unproven company such as ours or purchase or recommend the purchase of our shares until such time as we became more seasoned. As a consequence, there may be periods of several days or more when trading activity in our shares is minimal or non-existent, as compared to a seasoned issuer which has a large and steady volume of trading activity that will generally support continuous sales without an adverse effect on share price. Broad or active public trading market for our common stock may not develop or be sustained.

Our common stock may be considered a “penny stock,” and thereby be subject to additional sale and trading regulations that may make it more difficult to sell. 

 

Our common stock may be considered to be a “penny stock” if it does not qualify for one of the exemptions from the definition of “penny stock” under Section 3a51-1 of the Exchange Act, as amended. Our common stock may be a “penny stock” if it meets one or more of the following conditions: (i) the stock trades at a price less than $5.00 per share; (ii) it is NOT traded on a “recognized” national exchange; (iii) it is not quoted on the NASDAQ Capital Market, or even if so, has a price less than $5.00 per share; or (iv) is issued by a company that has been in business less than three years with net tangible assets less than $5 million. The principal result or effect of being designated a “penny stock” is that securities broker-dealers participating in sales of our common stock will be subject to the “penny stock” regulations set forth in Rules 15-2 through 15g-9 promulgated under the Exchange Act. For example, Rule 15g-2 requires broker-dealers dealing in penny stocks to provide potential investors with a document disclosing the risks of penny stocks and to obtain a manually signed and dated written receipt of the document at least two business days before effecting any transaction in a penny stock for the investor’s account. Moreover, Rule 15g-9 requires broker-dealers in penny stocks to approve the account of any investor for transactions in such stocks before selling any penny stock to that investor. This procedure requires the broker-dealer to: (i) obtain from the investor information concerning his or her financial situation, investment experience and investment objectives; (ii) reasonably determine, based on that information, that transactions in penny stocks are suitable for the investor and that the investor has sufficient knowledge and experience as to be reasonably capable of evaluating the risks of penny stock transactions; (iii) provide the investor with a written statement setting forth the basis on which the broker-dealer made the determination in (ii) above; and (iv) receive a signed and dated copy of such statement from the investor, confirming that it accurately reflects the investor’s financial situation, investment experience and investment objectives. Compliance with these requirements may make it more difficult and time consuming for holders of our common stock to resell their shares to third parties or to otherwise dispose of them in the market or otherwise.   

 

FINRA sales practice requirements may also limit your ability to buy and sell shares of our common stock, which could depress the price of shares of our common stock.

 

FINRA rules require broker-dealers to have reasonable grounds for believing that an investment is suitable for a customer before recommending that investment to the customer. Prior to recommending speculative low-priced securities to their non-institutional customers, broker-dealers must make reasonable efforts to obtain information about the customer’s financial status, tax status and investment objectives, among other things. Under interpretations of these rules, FINRA believes that there is a high probability such speculative low-priced securities will not be suitable for at least some customers. Thus, FINRA requirements make it more difficult for broker-dealers to recommend that their customers buy our common stock, which may limit your ability to buy and sell shares of our common stock, have an adverse effect on the market for shares of our common stock, and thereby depress price of our common stock.

Potential future sales under Rule 144 may depress the market price for our common stock.

 

In general, under Rule 144, a person who has satisfied a minimum holding period of between six months to one-year, as well as meeting any other applicable requirements of Rule 144, may thereafter sell such shares publicly. Therefore, the possible sale of unregistered shares may, in the future, have a depressive effect on the price of our common stock in the over-the-counter market.

 

Volatility in our common stock price may subject us to securities litigation.

 

The market for our common stock may have, when compared to seasoned issuers, significant price volatility and we expect that our share price may continue to be more volatile than that of a seasoned issuer for the indefinite future. In the past, plaintiffs have often initiated securities class action litigation against a company following periods of volatility in the market price of its securities. We may, in the future, be the target of similar litigation. Securities litigation could result in substantial costs and liabilities and could divert management’s attention and resources.

 

We are not likely to pay cash dividends in the foreseeable future.

 

We currently intend to retain any future earnings for use in the operation and expansion of our business. Accordingly, we do not expect to pay any cash dividends in the foreseeable future, but will review this policy as circumstances dictate. Should we determine to pay dividends in the future, our ability to do so will depend upon the receipt of dividends or other payments from Shuhai Beijing. Shuhai Beijing may, from time to time, be subject to restrictions on its ability to make distributions to us, including restrictions on the conversion of RMB into U.S. dollars or other hard currency and other regulatory restrictions.

We had 439 holders of record of our common stock as of June 30 2020.

 

Dividends

 

We do not anticipate paying dividends on our common stock at any time in the foreseeable future. We currently plan to retain earnings for the development and expansion of our business. Any future determination as to the payment of dividends will be at the discretion of our Board of Directors and will depend on a number of factors including future earnings, capital requirements, financial conditions and such other factors as our Board of Directors may deem relevant.

 

In addition, due to various restrictions under PRC laws on the distribution of dividends by WFOE, we may not be able to pay dividends to our shareholders. The Wholly-Foreign Owned Enterprise Law (1986), as amended, and the Wholly-Foreign Owned Enterprise Law Implementing Rules (1990), as amended, and the Company Law of the PRC (2006), contain the principal regulations governing dividend distributions by wholly foreign owned enterprises. Under these regulations, wholly foreign owned enterprises may pay dividends only out of their accumulated profits, if any, determined in accordance with PRC accounting standards and regulations. Additionally, such companies are required to set aside a certain amount of their accumulated profits each year, if any, to fund certain reserve funds until such time as the accumulated reserve funds reach and remain above 50% of the registered capital amount. These reserves are not distributable as cash dividends except in the event of liquidation and cannot be used for working capital purposes. Furthermore, if our subsidiaries and affiliates in China incur debt on their own in the future, the instruments governing the debt may restrict its ability to pay dividends or make other payments. If we or our subsidiaries and affiliates are unable to receive all of the revenues from our operations through the current contractual arrangements, we may be unable to pay dividends on our common stock.

 

Securities Authorized for Issuance under Equity Compensation Plan

 

On August 22, 2018, our Board of Directors and stockholders adopted the 2018 Equity Incentive Plan, or the 2018 Plan, to award up to a maximum of 4,000,000 shares of our common stock, to attract and retain the best available personnel, provide additional incentives to employees, directors and consultants and promote the success of our business. No awards have been granted under the 2018 Plan as of the date of this report, but our Board or a Board committee will determine, in its discretion, from time to time to make awards under the 2018 Plan, including to our officers and directors. Subsequently, the Company filed a registration statement on Form S-8 to register the shares underlying the 2018 Plan.

These include statements about our expectations, beliefs, intentions or strategies for the future, which we indicate by words or phrases such as “anticipate,” “expect,” “intend,” “plan,” “will,” “we believe,” “management believes” and similar language.

Except as may be required by law, we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events after the date of this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

 

Overview

 

We were incorporated in the State of Nevada on September 26, 2014 under the name Rose Rock Inc. and changed its name to Datasea Inc. on May 27, 2015 by amending its articles of incorporation. On May 26, 2015, the Company’s founder, Xingzhong Sun, sold 6,666,667 shares of common stock of the Company to Zhixin Liu, one of the owners of Shuhai Skill (HK) as defined below. On October 27, 2016, Mr. Sun sold his remaining 1,666,667 shares of common stock of the Company to Ms. Liu.

 

On October 29, 2015, the Company entered into a share exchange agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) with the shareholders (the “Shareholders”) of Shuhai Information Skill (HK) Limited (“Shuhai Skill (HK)”), a limited liability company incorporated on May 15, 2015 under the laws of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (the “PRC”). Pursuant to the terms of the Exchange Agreement, the Shareholders, who together owned 100% of the ownership rights in Shuhai Skill (HK), transferred all of the issued and outstanding ordinary shares of Shuhai Skill (HK) to the Company in exchange for the issuance of an aggregate of 6,666,667 shares of common stock, thereby causing Shuhai Skill (HK) and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Tianjin Information Sea Information Technology Co., Ltd. (“Tianjin Information”), a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of the PRC, and Harbin Information Sea Information Technology Co., Ltd., a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of the PRC, to become wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company, and Shuhai Information Technology Co., Ltd., also a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of the PRC (“Shuhai Beijing”), to become a variable interest entity (“VIE”) of the Company through a series of contractual agreements between Shuhai Beijing and Tianjin Information. The transaction was accounted for as a reverse merger, with Shuhai Skill (HK) and its subsidiaries being the accounting survivor. Accordingly, the historical financial statements presented are those of Shuhai Skill (HK) and its consolidated subsidiaries and VIE.

 

Following the Share Exchange, the Shareholders, being Zhixin Liu and her father, Fu Liu, owned approximately 82% of the outstanding shares of common stock. As of October 29, 2015, there were 18,333,333 shares of common stock issued and outstanding, 15,000,000 of which were beneficially owned by Zhixin Liu and Fu Liu. After the Share Exchange, the Company, through its consolidated subsidiaries and VIE, is engaged in the business of providing Internet security products and equipment, new media advertising, micro-marketing, and data analysis services in the PRCs.

 

On April 12, 2018, our Board of Directors and stockholders approved a one-for-three reverse stock split of our issued and outstanding shares of common stock, which became effective on May 1, 2018, decreasing the number of outstanding shares from 57,511,771 to 19,170,827. Subsequent to the split, the number of our outstanding shares increased from to 19,170,827 to 19,170,846 to accommodate certain shareholders’ positions due to rounding elections payable at the beneficial owner level. Unless otherwise stated, all shares and per share amounts in this form 10K have been retroactively adjusted to give effect to this stock split.

 

On December 21, 2018, the Company successfully completed a registered, underwritten initial public offering and concurrent listing of the Company’s common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market, which generated gross proceeds of $6.7 million before deducting underwriter’s commissions and other offering costs, resulting in net proceeds of approximately $5.7 million, of which $1,000,000 was placed in an escrow account. $600,000 of the escrow fund was held and will be disbursed by the escrow agent pursuant to the terms and conditions of a certain Indemnification Escrow Agreement between the Company and the underwriter of the offering. $400,000 of the escrow fund was disbursed to the Company in February 2019 when the underwriter confirmed receipt of a written legal opinion from PRC legal counsel in connection with such offering. The Company sold 1,667,500 shares of common stock (including shares issued pursuant to the underwriter’s over-allotment option) at an offering price of $4 per share. In connection with the offering, the Company’s common stock began trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market beginning on December 19, 2018 under the symbol “DTSS.”

Revenue

 

We had revenues of $1.41 million and $0 in the years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

On March 5, 2018 and June 28, 2018, we entered into separate agreements with two sales agents for our Safe Campus security system, respectively. Pursuant to the agreements, we authorized the agents to market the Company’s Safe Campus Management System. The term of the agreements is for five years and will expire on March 6, 2023 and July 1, 2023, respectively. As of June 30, 2019, we recorded the $1.29 million payments received from the two sales agents as advances from customers; in the fourth quarter of 2020, we recognized revenue of $1.29 million from these contracts as the sales agents sold the products and services to third parties in the same period and the Company has provided the required services and fulfilled all its obligations under these contracts.

In addition, during the year ended June 30, 2020, Guozhong Times executed 62 CRI purchase orders from development and construction companies from Anhui and Fujian province in China for an aggregate contract value (excluding value-add tax) of approximately $124,000 for customized hardware and software solutions to detect and control the novel coronavirus outbreak in public areas. Our systems sold in these orders are utilized in public places including campuses, shopping malls, scenic areas, residential areas and factory areas. A revenue of the same amount was recorded in the year ended June 30, 2020. We have recently expanded our business and customer development to 13 provinces in China, such that its products are sold in about 40% of the provincial administrative regions in China. Moreover, we have initiated marketing in Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo and other countries in Africa.

 

The increase in performance is based on the improvement of the Company’s sales system. We will take sales approaches including implementing market research, expanding sales team, developing channels and agents, establishing new operating entities, and at the same time we will take efforts to improve our after-sales service. We will continue to strengthen the building of our sales system.

 

Cost of Goods

 

We recorded $146,380 and $0 of cost of goods sold for the years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. The cost of goods sold was mainly for the CRI orders of Guozhong Times. No significant cost of goods sold was recorded for our sale of the Safe Campus Security systems as a substantial portion of the costs were related to research and development costs which were expensed as and when they were incurred.

 

Gross Profit

 

The gross profit for the years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 were $1,268,400 and $0, respectively.

 

Selling, General and Administrative, and Research and Development Expenses

 

Selling expenses were $438,621 and $199,485 for the years June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, an increase of $239,136 or 120%. The increase in selling expenses was primarily attributed to a $284,906 payment Shuhai Beijing made to a service provider, Beijing R&D Education Technology to develop and market an education platform for teachers and students, but was partly offset by decreased payroll expense by $30,825 and decreased travel expense by $5,668 of Shuhai Beijing. The Company will continue to enroll more sales professionals, develop channels and agents nationwide, and increase marketing expenses to obtain more orders.

 

As we are currently focusing our effort in the research and development (“R&D”) of our products and software to assist schools and communities in addressing the coronavirus outbreak, providing possible remedy and prevention for the future outbreak, and expanding the artificial intelligence application and products, we incurred increased research and development expenses by $946,238 or 562%, in the years ended June 30 2020 compared to $168,248 R&D expense recorded during the years ended June 30, 2019, respectively. The increase was mainly due to increased salary expense as a result of hiring more staffs in research and development department, and $700,000 R&D expenses for the Tour Site Security system, and the Facial Recognition and Eye Protection system. Total costs of these two systems are $2.4 million, out of which $1.9 million was paid as of June 30, 2020. We intend to invest approximately $10 million in technological product development over the next three years.

 

- 46 -

 

 

General and administration (“G&A”) expenses increased $488,771, or 43% from $1,131,575 during the year ended June 30, 2019 to $1,620,346 during the same period in 2020. The increases were attributed to increases in rent expenses by $126,873, increased property management fee by $38,400, increased office improvement depreciation by $22,120, increased salary expense of the Company’s President and Chairman by $94,019, increased conference expense by $30,282, fees to Nasdaq of $150,000 incurred in the year ended June 30, 2020, and increased professional fee by $41,552.

 

Non-operating income, net

 

Non-operating income were $46,958 and $74,127 for the years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019. For the year ended June 30, 2020, we had interest income $49,455 and other expense $2,497. For the years ended June 30, 2019, we had interest income $75,859 and other expense $1,732.

 

Net Loss

 

We generated net losses of $1,863,253 and $1,425,181 for the years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, mainly due to increased research and development expenses, selling expenses and G&A expenses as describe above, despite we had increased revenue for the year ended June 30, 2020.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We have funded our operations to date primarily through the sale of our common stock, shareholder loans and cash income. Our management recognizes that we must generate sales and additional cash resources in order for our Company to continue our operations. Based on increased demand for security services in China, our management believes in the potential for growth in our business. In addition, following our December 2018 IPO, we received net proceeds $5.7 million.

 

We expect to generate revenue through expanding our current Safe Campus business, promoting Epidemic Prevention and Control Systems, scenic area and public community security products, and other artificial intelligence application and products such as face recognition products, and through continuous product innovation and development as well as various types of value-added services. If revenues are not generated or do not reach the level anticipated in our plan, in order to maintain working capital sufficient to support our operations and finance the future growth of its 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. We will also generate cash flow through cash income and governmental subsidies to support future operations

 

As of June 30, 2020, we had a working capital of $2,609,032 excluding the restricted cash of $600,000 (or a current liquidity ratio of 4.78:1). Our current assets on June 30, 2020 were $3,298,523 excluding the restricted cash of $600,000. As of June 30, 2019, we had a working capital of $4,568,461 excluding the restricted cash of $600,000 (or current liquidity ratio of 3.71:1). Our current assets on June 30, 2019 were $6,251,863 excluding the restricted cash of $600,000, which will be released to the Company following the termination of the Indemnification Escrow Agreement originally executed in connection with our 2018 IPO.

 

It is expected that the Company will continue to support its operations and investment plans through its financing activities.

Item 9. Changes In and Disagreements With Accountants on Accounting and Financial Disclosure. 

 

Effective January 10, 2020, Wei, Wei & Co., LLP (“WWC”) resigned as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. WWC’s reports on the Company’s financial statements for the fiscal years ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principle. For the fiscal years ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 and during the subsequent interim periods through the date of this report, there were no disagreements (as that term is defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K) between the Company and WWC on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of WWC, would have caused WWC to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in connection with WWC’s report on the Company’s financial statements for such fiscal year. For the fiscal years ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 and during the subsequent interim periods through the date of this report, there were no reportable events (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).

 

On January 14, 2020, the Audit Committee of the Company’s Board of Directors appointed Morison Cogen LLP (“Morison”) as the Company’s new independent registered public accounting firm, effective immediately. For the fiscal years ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 and during the subsequent interim periods through January 10, 2020, neither the Company nor anyone acting on behalf of the Company had consulted Morison regarding either: (i) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s financial statements, nor did Morison provide a written report or oral advice to the Company that Morison concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issues; or (ii) any matter that was either the subject of a disagreement (as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions) or a reportable event (as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K).

Item 9A.  Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As of the end of the period covered by this Report, our management conducted an evaluation, under the supervision and with the participation of the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer (the “Evaluating Officers”), of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rule 13a-15(e) and Rule 15d-15(e) of the Exchange Act). Based on that evaluation, the Evaluating Officers concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of the period covered by this Report. A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected and corrected on a timely basis. The foregoing conclusion was due to the following circumstance:

 

On September 7, 2020, the Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of the Company and executive management, in consultation with the Board and the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm, Morison Cogen LLP, has concluded that the previously filed unaudited financial statements on Form 10-Q for the quarterly periods ended September 30, 2019, December 31, 2019, and March 31, 2020 (the “Affected Quarterly Reports”) should not be relied upon. Similarly, any press releases, earnings releases, and investor communications describing the Company’s financial statements for the above-referenced periods should no longer be relied upon. The non-reliance conclusion with respect to interim financial statements included in the Affected Quarterly Reports resulted from the determination that part of the research and developments costs capitalized in the intangible assets should be recognized as research and development expenses to be in compliance with Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 985 (Costs of software to be sold, leased, or marketed). Specifically, pursuant to this guidance, such development costs that are incurred prior to the point where the project has demonstrated technological feasibility are to be expensed as they are incurred. In the Affected Quarterly Reports, the Company recorded such development cost as intangible assets. The adjustments required to correct the foregoing erroneous treatment of such costs will result in an increase of research & development (“R&D”) expense of $200,000 for the quarter ended September 30, 2019, an increase of R&D expense by $250,000 for the quarter ended December 31, 2019 and an increase of R&D expense by $120,000 for the quarter ended March 31, 2020; and a decrease of intangible assets by $200,000 as of September 30, 2019, a decrease of intangible assets by $450,000 as of December 31, 2019 and a decrease of intangible assets by $570,000 as of March 31, 2020. In addition, the Company will reclassify the adjusted net intangible asset cost of $1,700,000 at September 30, 2019, $1,450,000 at December 31, 2019 and $1,330,000 as of March 31, 2020 to prepaid expenses. These prepaid expenses will either be expensed to R&D expense when incurred or capitalized as an intangible asset if the expenditures met the criteria established by FASB ASC Topic 985.

In order to remediate the foregoing weakness, the Company intends to implement the following steps:

 

To standardize the archiving of accounting files of the Company’s Finance Department

 

To ensure that the Financial Department during the course of preparing the consolidated financial reports the authenticity and integrity of consolidated and offsetting entries through cross-checking;

 

In addition to completing the preparation of quarterly, semi-annual and annual financial reports as scheduled, the Finance Department will be tasked to prepare financial analysis reports on a regular basis to be submitted to the management for operation and management analysis on meetings before the 18th of each month;

 

To ensure the timely and accurate generation of report data through the computerized accounting process and accounting system;

 

For each subsidiary to be required to prepare financial reports in strict accordance with accounting standards, carefully analyze the significant impact of major events and non-routine events, and deal with such events according to relevant financial regulations;

 

To monitor non-conventional and non-routine matters, as well as performing necessary approval procedures and accounting operations;

 

To improve specific and enforceable plans for inventory checking and credit/debt validation; and

 

To identify possible assets impairments and calculate the asset impairment provisions based on external and internal information.

 

The Company intends to complete these remedial steps by June 30, 2021. The Company’s management is in the process of reviewing and, where necessary, modifying and improving controls and procedures throughout the Company, as resources permit.

Management’s Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting 

 

Our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, has assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of June 30, 2020. In making this assessment, management used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control-Integrated Framework. Because of the weaknesses described in the following paragraphs, management believes that, as of June 30, 2020, our internal control over financial reporting was not effective due to the presence of the following weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting which are indicative of many small companies with a small staff: (i) the segregation of duties in several departments is not clear enough; (ii) the testing cycle for the effectiveness of internal control measures should be shortened and the frequency be increased; (iii) lack of accounting personal trained in the Generally Accepted Accounting Principle of United States.

 

Management Plan to Remediate Material Weaknesses

 

We have taken steps to enhance and improve the design of our internal control over financial reporting, mainly including that:

 

we established a Risk Control Department led by the internal control director and a team of legal counsels to ensure the Company’s compliance with relevant regulations and risk management requirements;

 

we also formulated new policies or integrate a series of internal control policies, including but not limited to the process from procurement to payment, the process from payment to the sales, cash management, cost management, budget process, accounts receivable policy, assets and inventory management, internal audit policy and cost accounting, etc.;

 

we set the International Affair Department to strengthen our compliance and financing management on the international capital market;

 

we employed a new legal counsel in China to enhance the Company’s operational compliance on the Chinese market. We arrange for all financial personnel to take part in the training and study of US GAAP.

 

This Annual Report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act, which permits us to provide only management’s report in this annual report.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the year ended June 30, 2020 that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal control over financial reporting.

Independence of the Board

 

As required under the Nasdaq Stock Market listing standards, a majority of the members of a listed company’s Board of Directors must qualify as “independent,” as affirmatively determined by the Board of Directors. Our Board has undertaken a review of the independence of each director. Based on information provided by each director concerning her or his background, employment, and affiliations, our board has determined that Stephen Wong, Tongjun Si and Ling Wang do not have relationships that would interfere with the exercise of independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director and that each of these directors is “independent” as that term is defined under the listing requirements and rules of Nasdaq.

 

In making this determination, the Board found that none of these directors had a material or other disqualifying relationship with the Company.

Item 12. Security Ownership of Certain Beneficial Owners and Management and Related Stockholder Matters.

 

The following table sets forth information regarding the beneficial ownership of our common stock as of September 16, 2020 by our officers, directors and 5% or greater beneficial owners of common stock. There is no other person or group of affiliated persons, known by us to beneficially own more than 5% of our common stock. 

 

- 61 -

 

 

We have determined beneficial ownership in accordance with the rules of the SEC.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders
Datasea Inc.

 

Opinion on the Financial Statements

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Datasea Inc. and subsidiaries (the Company) as of June 30, 2020, and the related consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss, changes in stockholders’ equity, and cash flows for the year then ended, and the related notes (collectively referred to as the consolidated financial statements). In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of June 30, 2020, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the year then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. As discussed in Note 2 to the consolidated financial statements, the Company has net losses, accumulated deficit and negative cash flows from operations. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in Note 2. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

 

Basis for Opinion

 

These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on the Company’s consolidated financial statements based on our audit. We are a public accounting firm registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (PCAOB) and are required to be independent with respect to the Company in accordance with the U.S. federal securities laws and the applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission and the PCAOB.

 

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the PCAOB. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement, whether due to error or fraud. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. As part of our audit, we are required to obtain an understanding of internal control over financial reporting, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion.

 

Our audit included performing procedures to assess the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to error or fraud, and performing procedures that respond to those risks. Such procedures included examining, on a test basis, evidence regarding the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. Our audit also included evaluating the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

DATASEA INC. 

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS 

JUNE 30, 2020 AND 2019

 

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION AND DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS

 

Datasea Inc. (the “Company”, or “we”, “us”, “our” or similar terminology) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on September 26, 2014 under the name Rose Rock Inc. and changed its name to Datasea Inc. on May 27, 2015. On May 26, 2015, the Company’s founder, Xingzhong Sun, sold 6,666,667 shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share, of the Company (the “Common Stock”) to Zhixin Liu (“Ms. Liu”), one of the owners of Shuhai Skill (HK) as defined below. On October 27, 2016, Mr. Sun sold his remaining 1,666,667 shares of Common Stock of the Company to Ms. Liu.

 

On October 29, 2015, the Company entered into a share exchange agreement (the “Exchange Agreement”) with the shareholders (the “Shareholders”) of Shuhai Information Skill (HK) Limited (“Shuhai Skill (HK)”), a limited liability company incorporated on May 15, 2015 under the laws of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China (the “PRC”). Pursuant to the terms of the Exchange Agreement, the Shareholders, who together own 100% of the ownership rights in Shuhai Skill (HK), transferred all of the issued and outstanding ordinary shares of Shuhai Skill (HK) to the Company in exchange for the issuance of an aggregate of 6,666,667 shares of Common Stock, thereby causing Shuhai Skill (HK) and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Tianjin Information Sea Information Technology Co., Ltd. (“Tianjin Information”), a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of the PRC, and Harbin Information Sea Information Technology Co., Ltd., a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of the PRC, to become wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company; and Shuhai Information Technology Co., Ltd., also a limited liability company incorporated under the laws of the PRC (“Shuhai Beijing”), to become a variable interest entity (“VIE”) of the Company through a series of contractual agreements between Shuhai Beijing and Tianjin Information. The transaction was accounted for as a reverse merger, with Shuhai Skill (HK) and its subsidiaries being the accounting survivor. Accordingly, the historical financial statements presented are those of Shuhai Skill (HK) and its consolidated subsidiaries and VIE.

 

Following the Share Exchange, the Shareholders, being Zhixin Liu and her father, Fu Liu, owned approximately 82% of the outstanding shares of Common Stock. As of October 29, 2015, there were 18,333,333 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding, 15,000,000 of which were beneficially owned by Zhixin Liu and Fu Liu.

 

On May 1, 2018, the Company implemented a 1 for 3 reverse stock split decreasing the shares outstanding from 57,511,711 to 19,170,846. The consolidated financial statements at June 30, 2018 have been retroactively adjusted to reflect the reverse split.

 

After the Share Exchange, the Company, through its consolidated subsidiaries and VIE is engaged in providing smart security solutions primarily to schools, tourist or scenic attractions and public communities in China.

 

On October 16, 2019, Shuhai Beijing incorporated a wholly owned subsidiary, Heilongjiang Xunrui Technology Co. Ltd. (“Xunrui”), which is engaged in developing and marketing the Company’s smart security system products.

 

F-7

 

 

On December 3, 2019, Shuhai Beijing formed Nanjing Shuhai Equity Investment Fund Management Co. Ltd. (“Shuhai Nanjing”), a joint venture in PRC, in which Shuhai Beijing holds a 99% ownership interest with the remaining 1% ownership held by Nanjing Fanhan Zhineng Technology Institute Co. Ltd, an unrelated party that was supported by both Nanjing Municipal Government and Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications. Shuhai Nanjing was formed for purposes of easy access of government funding and private financing in new technology development and project incubation. As of this report date, Shuhai Nanjing has no operations yet.

 

In January 2020, as described below, to expeditiously establish new subsidiaries to further expand the business and operation, the Company acquired ownerships in three entities for no consideration from the Company’s management who set up such entities on the Company’s behalf.

 

On January 3, 2020, Shuhai Beijing entered into two equity transfer agreements (the “Transfer Agreements”) with President of the Company, and a Director of the Company. Pursuant to the Transfer Agreements, the Director and the President, each agreed, for no consideration, to (i) transfer their 51% and 49% ownership interest, respectively, in Guozhong Times (Beijing) Technology Ltd. (“Guozhong Times”) to Shuhai Beijing; and (ii) transfer their 51% and 49% ownership interest, respectively, in Guohao Century (Beijing) Technology Ltd. (“Guohao Century”) to Shuhai Beijing. Guozhong Times and Guohao Century were established for developing technology for electronic products, intelligence equipment and accessories, and providing software and information system consulting, installation and maintenance services. Guozhong Times commenced operations in January 2020, whereas Guohao Century has not yet commenced operation as of this report date.

 

On January 7, 2020, Shuhai Beijing entered into another equity transfer agreement with the President, the same Director described above and an unrelated individual. Pursuant to this equity transfer agreement, the Director, the President and the unrelated each agreed to transfer their 51%, 16%, 33% ownership interests, respectively, in Guozhong Haoze (Beijing) Technology Ltd. (“Guozhong Haoze”) to Shuhai Beijing for no consideration. Guozhong Haoze was formed to further develop and market the smart security system products. However, as of June 30, 2020, it has not commenced operations.

 

In December 2019, a novel strain of coronavirus (COVID-19) was reported in China, upon which the World Health Organization has declared the outbreak to constitute a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern.” Based on the epidemic prevention and control system embedded in the Company’s intelligent security platform, the Company was able to promptly organize the employees at home to develop and upgrade the body temperature measurement and administration backend of the epidemic prevention and control system, which could meet the needs of schools and public communities for epidemic prevention, and well addressed the problem of how to integrate the Company’s security platform and epidemic prevention system. Since April in 2020, the Company has resumed normal work, and the impact of COVID-19 outbreak on the Company’s marketing efforts from January to March of 2020 has been mitigated. There are some new Covid-19 cases discovered in a few provinces of China including Beijing as of today, however, the number of new cases are not significant due to PRC government’s strict control, and the Company does not believe the new cases would have a significant impact on the Company’s operations.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying 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 years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company had a net loss of $1.86 million and $1.43 million, respectively. The Company has an accumulated deficit of $7.41 million as of June 30, 2020 and negative cash inflow from operations of $4.57 million for the year ended June 30, 2020. These factors raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. There can be no assurance that the Company will become profitable or obtain necessary financing for its business or that it will be able to continue in business.

 

The Company modified its products and software to emphasize the products and services that could assist schools and communities in addressing the coronavirus outbreak, providing possible remedy and prevention for the future outbreak after school resumes and public community reverts to social activities by promoting Epidemic Prevention and Control Systems. Management also intends to raise additional funds by way of a private or public offering, or by obtaining loans from banks or others, which are planned to be used altogether with operating turnover to support Company’s R&D, procurement, marketing and daily operation, while the Company believes in the viability of its strategy to generate sufficient revenue and in 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 is dependent 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. 

 

On June 25, 2020, the Company’s S-3 registration filing was successfully approved by SEC. The Company may from time to time issue up to $100,000,000 aggregate dollar amount of common stock, debt securities, warrants or units of securities. The Company will describe the plan of distribution for any particular offering of these securities in the applicable prospectus supplement. There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in any future fund raising.

 

BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND CONSOLIDATION

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and applicable rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) regarding consolidated financial reporting. The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of the Company and its 100% owned subsidiaries “Shuhai Skill (HK)”, and “Tianjin Information”, and its VIE, Shuhai Beijing, and Shuhai Beijing’s 100% owned subsidiaries – Xunrui and Guozhong Times. All significant inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation. 

 

F-9

 

 

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 consolidated financial statements, 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 have been included in the accompanying consolidated financial statements. 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 allows Tianjin Information to manage and operate Shuhai Beijing and collect 100% of their 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 has entered into a shareholders’ voting rights entrustment agreement (the “Entrustment Agreement”) under which Zhixin Liu and Fu Liu (collectively the “Shuhai Beijing Shareholders”) have 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”), pursuant to which the Shuhai Beijing Shareholders have granted Tianjin.

 

F-10

 

 

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 an option price of RMB 0.001 for each capital contribution of RMB1.00. Pursuant to the terms of the Option Agreement, Tianjin Information and the Shuhai Beijing shareholders have agreed to certain restrictive covenants to safeguard the rights of Tianjin Information under the option Agreement. Tianjin Information agreed to pay RMB1.00 annually to Shuhai Beijing Shareholders to maintain the option rights. Tianjin Information may terminate the Option Agreement upon prior written notice. The Option Agreement is valid for a period of 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 serves to guarantee 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 have agreed to pledge 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 have 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.

RECLASSIFICATION

 

Certain prior period accounts have been reclassified in conformity with current period’s presentation, including the reclassification of $500,000 intangible asset to non-current prepaid expense at June 30, 2019.

 

USE OF ESTIMATES

 

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with US GAPP 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 consolidated financial statements.

  

CONTINGENCIES

 

Certain conditions may exist as of the date the consolidated financial statements 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 consolidated financial statements.

 

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 June 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company has no such contingencies.

 

CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS

 

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

 

F-12

 

 

RESTRICTED CASH / ESCROW

 

Restricted cash represents cash held in an indemnification escrow account related to requirements of the financing agreement signed with the underwriter of the Company’s initial public offering for a period of 18 months or longer subsequent to the closing of the initial public offering on December 21, 2018, but in no event it shall be held in escrow for longer than 24 months.

 

INVENTORY

 

Inventory comprised principally of smart student identification cards related to the Company’s “Safe Campus” security products, as well as products associated therewith comprised of routers to be used in installations, 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 $44,237 and $0 allowances for slow-moving and obsolete inventory as of June 30, 2020 and 2019, 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.

 

F-13

 

 

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 fair value, and establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures that enhances disclosure requirements for fair value 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.

 

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 fair value measurement.

 

The carrying value of the Company’s short-term financial instruments, such as accounts payable, approximate their fair values due to their short maturities.

 

As of June 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company did not identify any assets and liabilities that are required to be presented on the balance sheet at fair value on a recurring basis. 

 

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 to be generated by the asset.

 

F-14

 

 

If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured as the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its fair value. Fair value 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 fair value less cost to sell. For the years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, there was no impairment loss recognized on long-lived assets.

 

LEASES

  

On July 1, 2019, the Company adopted Topic 842 using the modified retrospective transition approach by applying the new standard to all leases existing at the date of initial application. Results and disclosure requirements for reporting periods beginning after July 1, 2019 are presented under Topic 842, while prior period amounts have not been adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with its historical accounting under Topic 840.

 

The Company elected the package of practical expedients permitted under the transition guidance, which allowed it to carry forward its historical lease classification, its assessment on whether a contract was or contains a lease, and its initial direct costs for any leases that existed prior to July 1, 2019. The Company also elected to combine its lease and non-lease components and to keep leases with an initial term of 12 months or less off the balance sheet and recognize the associated lease payments in the consolidated statements of income on a straight-line basis over the lease term.

 

The adoption did not impact its beginning accumulated deficit, or its prior year consolidated statement of operations and statement of cash flows.

 

Under Topic 842, the Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception. 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.

 

Operating leases are included in operating lease right-of-use assets and operating lease liabilities (current and non-current), on the consolidated balance sheets. At June 30, 2020, the net ROU was $702,952, of which $10,171 was for the car lease from the Company’s president, and $692,781 was for the operating lease of the Company’s office and senior officers’ dormitory in Beijing. At June 30, 2020, total operating lease liabilities (includes current and noncurrent) was $687,902, which was for the operating lease of the Company’s office and senior officers’ dormitory in Beijing.

 

F-15

 

 

REVENUE RECOGNITION

 

On July 1, 2018, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2014-09 (and related amendments subsequently issued in 2016), Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASC 606), by using the modified retrospective method for contracts that were not completed as of July 1, 2018.  This did not result in an adjustment to retained earnings upon adoption of this new guidance, as the Company’s revenue was recognized based on the amount of consideration we expect to receive in exchange for satisfying the performance obligations.

 

The core principle underlying the 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 recognized at a point in time, based on when control of goods and services transfers to a customer.

 

ASC 606 requires the use of a new five-step model to recognize revenue from customer contracts. The five-step model requires that 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 application of the five-step model to the revenue streams compared to the prior guidance did not result in significant changes in the way the Company records its revenue. Upon adoption, the Company evaluated its revenue recognition policy for all revenue streams within the scope of the ASC 606 under previous standards and using the five-step model under the new guidance and confirmed that there were no differences in the pattern of revenue recognition.

 

The Company derives its revenues from products sales and professional service contracts with its customers, with revenues being recognized upon delivery of services and products. Persuasive evidence of an arrangement is demonstrated via professional service contracts and invoices; and the service price to the customer is fixed upon acceptance of the professional services contract. The Company will recognize revenue when professional service is rendered to the customer by the Company and collectability of payment is reasonably assured. These revenues will be 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.

INCOME TAXES

 

The Company uses the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes in accordance with 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 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. 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 ASC Topic 740, when tax returns are filed, it is highly certain that 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 July 1, 2019, the Company had no unrecognized tax benefits and no charges during fiscal year 2020, and accordingly, the Company did not recognize any interest or penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits. There was no accrual for uncertain tax position as of June 30, 2020. The Company files U.S. income tax return. With few exceptions, the US income tax return filed for the years ending on June 30, 2017 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 they are incurred. For the years ended June 30, 2019 and 2020, the Company incurred research and development expenses of $1,114,486 and $168,248, 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 ($71,806) is covered by insurance. Should any of these institutions 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 $733,849 and $1,395,104 at June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively, were held in accounts at financial institutions located in the PRC‚ which is not freely convertible into foreign currencies. 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. Cash held in accounts at U.S. financial institutions are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or other programs subject to certain limitations up to $250,000 per depositor. As of June 30, 2020, the cash balance of approximately $315,735 was maintained at U.S. financial institutions, of which approximately $65,000 was not insured. Cash was maintained at financial institutions in Hong Kong, and were insured by the Hong Kong Deposit Protection Board up to a limit of HK $500,000 (approximately $64,000). As of June 30, 2020, the cash balance of approximately $16,352 was maintained at financial institutions in Hong Kong.

  

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 dollars(“USD”) The accounts of the Chinese entities were translated into USD in accordance with 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 ASC Topic 220, “Comprehensive Income.” Gains and losses resulting from foreign currency transactions are reflected in the statements of operations. 

 

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 consolidated financial statements were as follows

 

    June 30,     June 30,  
    2020     2019  
Period end USD: RMB exchange rate     7.0795       6.8668  
Average USD: RMB exchange rate     7.0199       6.8263

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 are 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 years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, the Company’s basic and diluted loss per share are the same due to the outstanding warrants being anti-dilutive as a result of the Company’s net loss.

 

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

 

The Company is an emerging growth company and has elected not to use the extended transition period for complying with any new or revised financial accounting standards.

 

In August 2018, the FASB issued ASU 2018-13, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Disclosure Framework-Changes to the Disclosure Requirements for Fair Value Measurement, which modifies the disclosure requirements for Level 1, Level 2 and Level 3 instruments in the fair value hierarchy. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted for any eliminated or modified disclosures. The adoption of this standard is not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements or disclosures.

 

In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU No. 2019-08, Compensation – Stock Compensation (Topic 718) and Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606), Codification Improvements – Share-Based Consideration Payable to a Customer. The amendments in this Update require that an entity measure and classify share-based payment awards granted to a customer by applying the guidance in Topic 718. The amount recorded as a reduction of the transaction price is required to be measured on the basis of the grant-date fair value of the share-based payment award in accordance with Topic 718. The grant date is the date at which a grantor (supplier) and a grantee (customer) reach a mutual understanding of the key terms and conditions of a share-based payment award. For entities that have not yet adopted the amendments in Update 2018-07, the amendments in this Update are effective for (1) public business entities in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within those fiscal years, and (2) other than public business entities in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2019, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020. The Company is evaluating the impact of this on its consolidated financial statements.

 

F-19

 

 

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12, Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes, which simplifies the accounting for income taxes, eliminates certain exceptions within ASC 740, Income Taxes, and clarifies certain aspects of the current guidance to promote consistent application among reporting entities. The guidance is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, and interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. Upon adoption, the Company must apply certain aspects of this standard retrospectively for all periods presented while other aspects are applied on a modified retrospective basis through a cumulative-effect adjustment to retained earnings as of the beginning of the fiscal year of adoption. The Company is evaluating the impact this update will have on its Consolidated Financial Statements.

On December 21, 2018, the Company completed a registered, underwritten initial public offering and concurrent listing of the Company’s Common Stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market, which offering generated gross proceeds of $6.7 million before deducting underwriter’s commissions and other offering costs, resulting in net proceeds of approximately $5.7 million, of which $1,000,000 was placed in an escrow account. The escrow fund is being held and disbursed by the escrow agent pursuant to the terms and conditions of a certain Indemnification Escrow Agreement between the Company and the underwriter of the offering. $400,000 of the escrow fund was disbursed to the Company in February 2019 when the underwriter confirmed receipt of a written legal opinion from PRC legal counsel in connection with such offering.

The warrants issued in this financing were classified as equity instruments. The Company accounted for the warrants issued in this financing based on the fair value method under ASC Topic 505, and the FV of the warrants was calculated using the Black-Scholes model under the following assumptions: life of 5 years, volatility of 168%, risk-free interest rate of 2.64% and dividend yield of 0%. The FV of the warrants issued at grant date was $387,727, and was recorded as offering costs. Following is a summary of the activities of warrants for the years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019:

NOTE 10 – INCOME TAXES

 

The Company is subject to income taxes by entity on income arising in or derived from the tax jurisdiction in which each entity is domiciled. The Company’s PRC subsidiaries file their income tax returns online with PRC tax authorities. The Company conducts all of its businesses through its subsidiaries and affiliated entities, principally in the PRC.

 

The Company’s US parent company was incorporated in the US and is subject to U.S. income tax rate of 21% and files U.S. federal income tax return.  As of June 30, 2020, the US entity had net operating loss (“NOL”) carry forwards for income tax purpose of $353,664. The NOL arising in tax years beginning after 2017 may reduce 80% of a taxpayer’s taxable income, and be carried forward indefinitely. 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, and Guozhong Times are subject to the regular 25% PRC income tax rate.

 

As of June 30, 2020, the Company has approximately $5.68 million of NOL related to its HK holding company, PRC subsidiaries and VIEs that expire in calendar years 2020 through 2024. 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 is dependent 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 June 30, 2020 and 2019.

Investment in subsidiaries in the parent company’s balance sheet at June 30, 2020 is stated at cost plus equity in undistributed earnings of subsidiaries and VIE. The parent company’s share of net income and net loss of its subsidiaries and VIE is included in the statement of operations of the parent company for the year ended June 30, 2020 using the equity method.

 

As of June 30, 2020, the parent company has no purchase commitment, capital commitment and operating lease commitment.

 

The ability of the parent company’s Chinese operating subsidiaries to pay dividends may be restricted due to the foreign exchange control policies and availability of cash balances of the Chinese operating subsidiaries. As a significant portion of the Company’s operations and revenues are conducted and generated in the PRC, a significant portion of the revenues being earned and currency received are denominated in RMB. RMB is subject to the exchange control regulation in the PRC and, as a result, the Company may be unable to distribute any dividends outside of China due to PRC exchange control regulations that restrict the Company’s ability to convert RMB into US Dollars.
