2. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

(a) Basis of presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). All transactions and balances among the Company and its subsidiaries have been eliminated upon consolidation.

 

The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial information as of March 31, 2021 and for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020 have been prepared, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”). Certain information and footnote disclosures, which are normally included in annual condensed consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with US GAAP, have been omitted pursuant to those rules and regulations. The unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial information should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and the notes thereto, included in the Company’s Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 previously filed with the SEC on June 4, 2021.

 

In the opinion of management, all adjustments (which include normal recurring adjustments) necessary to present a fair statement of the Company’s unaudited condensed consolidated financial position as of March 31, 2021 and its unaudited condensed consolidated results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, and its unaudited condensed consolidated cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, as applicable, have been made. The interim results of operations are not necessarily indicative of the operating results for the fiscal year or any future periods.

 

Use of estimates

 

The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with the US GAAP requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities on the date of these condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. The Company bases its estimates and judgments on historical experience and on various other assumptions and information that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Estimates and assumptions of future events and their effects cannot be perceived with certainty and, accordingly, these estimates may change as new events occur, as more experience is acquired, as additional information is obtained and as our operating environment changes. Significant estimates and assumptions made by management include, among others, useful lives and impairment of long-lived assets, collectability of receivables, including accounts receivable, loans receivable, and amount due from related parties, advances to suppliers, allowance for doubtful accounts and fair value of goodwill. While the Company believes that the estimates and assumptions used in the preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements are appropriate, actual results could differ from those estimates. Estimates and assumptions are periodically reviewed and the effects of revisions are reflected in the condensed consolidated financial statements in the period they are determined to be necessary.

Foreign currency

 

The functional currency of the Company and its Hong Kong subsidiary is the United States dollars (“US$”). The Company’s PRC subsidiaries determined their functional currency to be the Chinese Renminbi (“RMB”). The determination of functional currency is based on the criteria of ASC 830, Foreign Currency Matters (“ASC 830”). The Company uses the RMB as its reporting currency.

 

The financial statements of the Company and its Hong Kong subsidiary are translated from the functional currency to the reporting currency, RMB. Monetary assets and liabilities of the subsidiaries are translated into RMB using the exchange rate in effect at each balance sheet date. Income and expense items are translated at the average exchange rate prevailing during the fiscal year. Translation gains and losses are accumulated in other comprehensive loss, as a component of shareholders’ deficit in the consolidated financial statements.

 

Transactions denominated in other than the functional currencies are remeasured into the functional currency of the entity at the exchange rates prevailing on the transaction dates. Financial assets and liabilities denominated in other than the functional currency are re-measured into the functional currency at the exchange rates prevailing at the balance sheet date. The foreign exchange differences are recorded in the consolidated statements of comprehensive income (loss).

 

(b)Convertible promissory notes

 

The Company accounts for its convertible notes at issuance by allocating the proceeds received among freestanding instruments according to ASC 470, Debt ("ASC 470,") based upon their relative fair values.  The fair value of debt and common stock is determined based on the closing price of the common stock on the date of the transaction, and the fair value of warrants, if any, is determined using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model.  Convertible notes are subsequently carried at amortized cost.  The fair value of the warrants is recorded as additional paid-in capital, with a corresponding debt discount from the face amount of the convertible note.  

 

Each convertible note is analyzed for the existence of a beneficial conversion feature, defined as the fair value of the common stock at the commitment date for the convertible note less the effective conversion price. Beneficial conversion features are recognized at their intrinsic value, and recorded as an increase to additional paid-in capital, with a corresponding reduction in the carrying amount of the convertible note (as a debt discount from the face amount of the convertible note.)  The discounts on the convertible notes, consisting of amounts ascribed to warrants and beneficial conversion features, are amortized to interest expense, using the effective interest method, over the terms of the related convertible notes.  Beneficial conversion features that are contingent upon the occurrence of a future event are recorded when the contingency is resolved.

 

Each convertible note is also analyzed for the existence of embedded derivatives, which may require bifurcation from the convertible note and separate accounting treatment.

 

The Company also analyzes the features of its convertible notes which, when triggered, mandate a downward adjustment to the instrument’s strike price (or conversion price) if equity shares are issued at a lower price (or equity-linked financial instruments are issued at a lower strike price) than the instrument’s then-current strike price. The purpose of the feature is typically to protect the instrument’s counterparty from future issuances of equity shares at a more favorable price.

 

(c) Recent accounting pronouncement

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13 (“ASU 2016-13”) “Financial Instruments - Credit Losses” (“ASC 326”): Measurement of Credit Losses on Financial Instruments” which requires the measurement and recognition of expected credit losses for financial assets held at amortized cost. ASU 2016-13 replaces the existing incurred loss impairment model with an expected loss model which requires the use of forward-looking information to calculate credit loss estimates. It also eliminates the concept of other-than-temporary impairment and requires credit losses related to available-for-sale debt securities to be recorded through an allowance for credit losses rather than as a reduction in the amortized cost basis of the securities. These changes will result in earlier recognition of credit losses. In November 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-10 “Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326), Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815), and Leases (Topic 842)” (“ASC 2019-10,”) which defers the effective date of ASU 2016-13 to fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022, including interim periods within those fiscal years, for public entities which meet the definition of a smaller reporting company. The Company will adopt ASU 2016-13 effective January 1, 2023. Management is currently evaluating the effect of the adoption of ASU 2016-13 on the consolidated financial statements. The effect will largely depend on the composition and credit quality of our investment portfolio and the economic conditions at the time of adoption.

 

In January 2017, the FASB issued ASU 2017-04, “Intangibles — Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): Simplifying the Test for Goodwill Impairment,” which simplifies how an entity is required to test goodwill for impairment by eliminating step two from the goodwill impairment test. Step two of the goodwill impairment test measures a goodwill impairment loss by comparing the implied fair value of a reporting unit’s goodwill with its carrying amount. As amended by ASU 2019-10, annual or interim goodwill impairment tests are performed in fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2022. We do not expect that the adoption of this guidance will have a material impact on our financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

 

In January 2020, the FASB issued ASU 2020-01, Investments-Equity Securities (Topic 321), Investments-Equity Method and Joint Ventures (Topic 323), and Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815) - Clarifying the Interactions between Topic 321, Topic 323, and Topic 815. This guidance addresses accounting for the transition into and out of the equity method and provides clarification of the interaction of rules for equity securities, the equity method of accounting, and forward contracts and purchase options on certain types of securities. This standard is effective for the Group beginning January 1, 2022 including interim periods within the fiscal year. Early adoption is permitted. The Group does not expect any material impact on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In August 2020, the FASB issued ASU No. 2020-06 (“ASU 2020-06”) “Debt—Debt with Conversion and Other Options (Subtopic 470-20) and Derivatives and Hedging—Contracts in Entity’s Own Equity (Subtopic 815-40): Accounting for Convertible Instruments and Contracts in an Entity’s Own Equity.” ASU 2020-06 will simplify the accounting for convertible instruments by reducing the number of accounting models for convertible debt instruments and convertible preferred stock. For public business entities, the amendments in ASU 2020-06 are effective for public entities which meet the definition of a smaller reporting company are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2023. The Company will adopt ASU 2020-06 effective January 1, 2024. Management is currently evaluating the effect of the adoption of ASU 2020-06 on the consolidated financial statements. The effect will largely depend on the composition and terms of the financial instruments at the time of adoption.

9. INCOME TAXES

 

Effective January 1, 2008, the New Taxation Law of PRC stipulates that domestic enterprises and foreign invested enterprises (the “FIEs”) are subject to a uniform tax rate of 25%. Under the PRC tax law, companies are required to make quarterly estimate payments based on 25% tax rate; companies that received preferential tax rates are also required to use a 25% tax rate for their installment tax payments. The overpayment, however, will not be refunded and can only be used to offset future tax liabilities.

  

The Company evaluates the level of authority for each uncertain tax position (including the potential application of interest and penalties) based on the technical merits, and measures the unrecognized benefits associated with the tax positions. For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company had no unrecognized tax benefits. Due to uncertainties surrounding future utilization, the Company estimates there will not be sufficient future income to realize the deferred tax assets for certain subsidiaries and a VIE. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the Company had deferred tax assets of $3,240,313 and $4,452,837, respectively. The Company maintains a full valuation allowance on its net deferred tax assets as of March 31, 2021.

 

The Company does not anticipate any significant increase to its liability for unrecognized tax benefit within the next 12 months. The Company will classify interest and penalties related to income tax matters, if any, in income tax expense.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company had current income tax expenses of $603,616 and $nil, respectively, and deferred income tax of $203,147 in the connection of intangible assets generated from Baiyu acquisition, and $nil, respectively.

 

The Company accounts for uncertainty in income taxes using a two-step approach to recognizing and measuring uncertain tax positions. The first step is to evaluate the tax position for recognition by determining if the weight of available evidence indicates that it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained on audit, including resolution of related appeals or litigation processes, if any. The second step is to measure the tax benefit as the largest amount that is more than 50% likely of being realized upon settlement. Interest and penalties related to uncertain tax positions are recognized and recorded as necessary in the provision for income taxes. The Company is subject to income taxes in the PRC. According to the PRC Tax Administration and Collection Law, the statute of limitations is three years if the underpayment of taxes is due to computational errors made by the taxpayer or the withholding agent. The statute of limitations is extended to five years under special circumstances, where the underpayment of taxes is more than RMB 100,000. In the case of transfer pricing issues, the statute of limitation is ten years. There is no statute of limitation in the case of tax evasion. There were no uncertain tax positions as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020 and the Company does not believe that its unrecognized tax benefits will change over the next twelve months.

13. Risks and uncertainties

 

(1) Credit risk

 

Financial instruments that are potentially subject to credit risk consist principally of trade receivables and advances to suppliers. The Company believes the concentration of credit risk in its trade receivables and advances to suppliers is substantially mitigated by its ongoing credit evaluation process and relatively short collection terms. The Company does not generally require collateral from customers. The Company evaluates the need for an allowance for doubtful accounts based upon factors surrounding the credit risk of specific customers, historical trends and other information. All of the Company’s cash is maintained with banks within the People’s Republic of China of which no deposits are covered by insurance. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts. The Company performs ongoing credit evaluations of its customers and key suppliers to help further reduce credit risk.

 

(2) Liquidity risk

 

The Company is also exposed to liquidity risk which is risk that it is unable to provide sufficient capital resources and liquidity to meet its commitments and business needs. Liquidity risk is controlled by the application of financial position analysis and monitoring procedures. When necessary, the Company will turn to other financial institutions and the owners to obtain short-term funding to meet the liquidity shortage.

 

15

 

 

(3) Foreign currency risk

 

The Company’s financial information is presented in U.S. dollars (“USD”). The functional currency of the Company is the Chinese Yuan, Renminbi (“RMB”), the currency of the PRC. Any transactions which are denominated in currencies other than RMB are translated into RMB at the exchange rate quoted by the People’s Bank of China prevailing at the dates of the transactions, and exchange gains and losses are included in the statements of operations as foreign currency transaction gain or loss. The consolidated financial statements of the Company have been translated into U.S. dollars in accordance with ASC 830, “Foreign Currency Matters”. The financial information is first prepared in RMB and then is translated into U.S. dollars at period-end exchange rates for assets and liabilities and average exchange rates for revenue and expenses. Capital accounts are translated at their historical exchange rates when the capital transactions occurred. The effects of foreign currency translation adjustments are included as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income in stockholder’s equity. Cash flows from the Company’s operations are calculated based upon the local currencies using the average translation rate. As a result, amounts related to assets and liabilities reported on the statements of cash flows will not necessarily agree with changes in the corresponding balances on the balance sheets. The value of RMB is subject to changes in central government policies and to international economic and political developments affecting supply and demand in the China Foreign Exchange Trading System market. Where there is a significant change in value of RMB, the gains and losses resulting from translation of financial statements of a foreign subsidiary will be significant affected.

 

(4)Economic and political risks

 

The Company’s operations are conducted in the PRC. Accordingly, the Company’s business, financial condition and results of operation may be influenced by the political, economic and legal environment in the PRC, and by the general state of the PRC economy. In light of the uncertain and rapidly evolving situation relating to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), we have taken temporary precautionary measures intended to help minimize the risk of the virus to our employees, our customers, and the communities in which we participate, which could negatively impact our business. To this end, we are evaluating alternative working arrangements, including requiring all employees to work remotely, and we have suspended all non-essential travel for our employees and limiting in-person work-related meetings.

 

In addition, with the extended Chinese business shutdowns that resulted from the outbreak of COVID-19, we may experience delays or the inability to service our customers on a timely basis in both our luxurious car leasing business and our commodities trading business. The disruptions to our supply chain and business operations, or to our suppliers’ or customers’ supply chains and business operations, could include disruptions from the closure of our luxury car rental facilities, interruptions in the supply of commodities, personnel absences, and restrictions on the luxury car rental services or delivery and storage of commodities, any of which could have adverse ripple effects on our luxurious car leasing business and our commodities trading business. If we need to close any of our facilities or a critical number of our employees become too ill to work, our ability to provide our products and services to our customers could be materially adversely affected in a rapid manner. Similarly, if our customers experience adverse business consequences due to COVID-19, or any other pandemic, demand for our products and services could also be materially adversely affected in a rapid manner. Global health concerns, such as COVID-19, could also result in social, economic, and labor instability in the localities in which we or our suppliers and customers operate within China.

 

While the potential economic impact brought by and the duration of COVID-19 may be difficult to assess or predict, a widespread pandemic could result in significant disruption of global financial markets, reducing our ability to access capital, which could in the future negatively affect our liquidity. In addition, a recession or market correction resulting from the spread of COVID-19 could materially affect our business and the value of our common stock. While it is too early to tell whether COVID-19 will have a material effect on our business over time, we continue to monitor the situation as it unfolds. The extent to which COVID-19 affects our results will depend on many factors and future developments, including new information about COVID-19 and any new government regulations which may emerge to contain the virus, among others.

(5)Risks related to industry

 

The Company sells precious products to customers through our industrial relationship. Sales contracts are entered into with each individual customer. The Company is the principal under the precious metal direct sales model as the Company controls the products with the ability to direct the use of, and obtain substantially all the remaining benefits from the precious metal products before they are sold to its customers. The Company has a single performance obligation to sell metal products to the buyers. The Company estimates the amount of variable consideration including sales return using the expected value method and includes variable consideration in the transaction price to the extent that it is probable that a significant reversal will not occur. Revenue for precious metal trading under direct sales model is recognized at a point in time when the single performance obligation is satisfied when the products are delivered to the customer. We are under the risk of economic environment in general and specific to the precious metal industry and to China as well as changes to the existing governmental regulations.

 

Commodity trading in China is subject to seasonal fluctuations, which may cause our revenues to fluctuate from quarter to quarter. We generally experience less user traffic and purchase orders during national holidays in China, particularly during the Chinese New Year holiday season in the first quarter of each year. Consequently, the first quarter of each calendar year generally contributes the smallest portion of our annual revenues. Furthermore, as we are substantially dependent on sales of precious metal, our quarterly revenues and results of operations are likely to be affected by price fluctuation under macroeconomic circumstance these years.

 

As our revenues have grown rapidly in recent years, these factors are difficult to discern based on our historical results, which, therefore, should not be relied on to predict our future performance. Our financial condition and results of operations for future periods may continue to fluctuate. As a result, the trading price of our stock may fluctuate from time to time due to seasonality.

 

14. SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

 

During the period that two convertible notes in the original amount of $1,670,000 and $3,320,000 are outstanding respectively, the Company will reserve from its authorized and unissued shares of common stock more than 5,000,000 shares, free from preemptive rights, to provide for the issuance of the common stock upon the full conversion of the Notes. The earlier of (i) 45 days after filing of the PRE14C with SEC, or (ii) May 31, 2021 under the assumption of no comments from PRE14C. In the event that the SEC has any comments to the Company’s PRE14C, the Company agrees to grant an additional 30 days to meet the requirement no later than June 31,2021.

 

Investors will not seek to redeem any portion of the notes until six months after issue date, which is July 7,2021 for first note on January 6, 2021 and September 4, 2021 for additional note on March 4, 2021

ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

 

Overview

 

As of March 31, 2021, the Company had one business line which is commodities trading business.

 

Commodities trading business

I

The commodity trading business primarily involves purchasing non-ferrous metal product, such as aluminium ingots, copper, silver, and gold, from metal and mineral suppliers and then selling to customers. In connection with the Company’s commodity sales, in order to help customers to obtain sufficient funds to purchase various metal products and also help upstream metal and mineral suppliers to sell their metal products, the Company launched its supply chain management service in December 2019. The Company primarily generates revenues from bulk non-ferrous commodity products, and from providing related supply chain management services in the PRC.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company recorded revenue of $29,436,482 from commodities trading business and $145,775 from commodity distributions services and other related services, respectively.

 

Through Huamucheng’s business, the Company sources bulk commodity products from non-ferrous metal and mines or its designated distributors and then sells to manufactures who need these metals in large quantity. The Company works with upstream suppliers in the sourcing of commodities. Major suppliers include various metal and mineral suppliers such as Kunsteel Group, Baosteel Group, Aluminum Corporate of China Limited, Yunnan Benyuan, Yunnan Tin, and Shanghai Copper. Potential customers include large infrastructure companies such as China National Electricity, Datang Power, China Aluminum Foshan International Trade, Tooke Investment (China), CSSC International Trade Co., Ltd., Shenye Group, and Keliyuan.

  

Competition

 

The Company mainly competes against other large domestic commodity metal product trading service providers such as Xiamen International Trade and Yijian Shares. Currently, the principal competitive factors in the non-ferrous metals commodities trading business are price, product availability, quantity, service, and financing terms for purchases and sales of commodities.

 

Applicable Government Regulations

 

Huamucheng has obtained all material approvals, permits, licenses and certificates required for our metal product trading operations, including registrations from the local business and administrative department authorizing the purchase of raw materials.

 

Key Factors Affecting Our Results of Operation

 

The commodities trading industry is also experiencing decreasing demand as a result of China’s overall economic slowdown. We expect competition in commodities trading business to persist and intensify.

 

We have a limited operating history having just started our commodities trading business in late November 2019. We believe our future success depends on our ability to significantly increase sales as well as maintain profitability from our operations. Our limited operating history makes it difficult to evaluate our business and future prospects. You should consider our future prospects in light of the risks and challenges encountered by a company with a limited operating history in an emerging and rapidly evolving industry. These risks and challenges include, among other things,

 

  our ability to continue our growth as well as maintain profitability;

 

  preservation of our competitive position in commodities trading industry in China;

 

  our ability to implement our strategies and make timely and effective responses to competition and changes in customer preferences; and

 

  recruitment, training and retaining of qualified managerial and other personnel.

 

Our business requires a significant amount of capital in large part due to needing to purchase bulk volume of commodities, and expand our business in existing markets and to additional markets where we currently do not have operations.

Recent Development

 

Acquisition of supply chain service business

 

On October 26, 2020, Huamucheng closed acquisition of Qianhai Baiyu pursuant to certain share purchase agreements, by and among Huamucheng, Qianhai Baiyu, and Shenzhen Xinsuniao for an aggregate cash consideration of RMB670 million (approximately $102.6 million). Upon closing of this acquisition, Huamucheng owns all the registered paid-up capital of Qianhai Baiyu.

 

Disposition of used luxurious car leasing business

 

Historically, one of the Company’s core business has been the used luxurious car leasing business conducted through Beijing Tianxing Kunlun Technology Co. Ltd. (“Beijing Tianxing”), an entity that the Company controlled via certain contractual arrangements.

 

On August 28, 2020, the Company entered into the Disposition SPA with Vision Loyal, HC High HK and HC High BVI. Pursuant to the Disposition SPA, Vision Loyal agreed to purchase HC High HK in exchange for nominal consideration of $1.00 based on a valuation report presented by an independent third party valuation firm, Beijing North Asia Asset Assessment Firm. The Board approved the Disposition and the Disposition closed on August 28, 2020.

 

Termination of VIE Agreement

 

On April 2, 2020, HC High Summit Holding Limited (“HC High BVI”), the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary, established Tongdow Block Chain Information Technology Company Limited (“Tongdow Block Chain”), a holding company incorporated in accordance with the laws and regulations of Hong Kong. Tongdow Block Chain is wholly owned by HC High BVI. On April 2, 2020, Tongdow Block Chain established Shanghai Jianchi Supply Chain Company Limited (“Shanghai Jianchi”) as its wholly owned subsidiary. Shanghai Jianchi is a holding company incorporated in accordance with the laws and regulations of People’s Republic of China (“PRC”).

  

On June 25, 2020, Hao Limo Technology (Beijing) Co. Ltd. (“Hao Limo”), the Company’s wholly owned subsidiary incorporated in PRC, and Shenzhen Huamucheng Trading Co., Ltd. (“Huamucheng”), a former VIE of the Company, entered into certain VIE Termination Agreement (the “VIE Termination Agreement”) to terminate the Huamucheng VIE Agreements. As such, Hao Limo will no longer have the control rights and rights to the assets, property and revenue of Huamucheng. On the same date, Shanghai Jianchi, Huamucheng and the shareholders of Huamucheng (the “Huamucheng Shareholders”) entered into certain Share Acquisition Agreement (the “Acquisition Agreement”) pursuant to which Shanghai Jianchi acquired 100% equity interest of Huamucheng from the Huamucheng Shareholders for nominal consideration.

 

As a result of the above reorganization, Huamucheng transitioned from being a variable interest entity (“VIE”) controlled by Company into a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. The Company remained in control of Huamucheng both before and after the reorganization and its operating results are consolidated into the Company’s consolidated financial statements.

Revenue

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, we generate revenue from the following two sources, including (1) revenue from sales of commodity products, (2) revenue from supply chain management services. Total revenue increased by $28,376,141 or 2353%, from $1,206,116 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 to $29,582,257 for the three months ended March 31, 2021, among which revenue from commodity trading and supply chain management accounted for 99.5% and 0.5%, respectively, of our total revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2021. For the three months ended March 31, 2020, 87% of our revenue was generated from sales of commodity products and 13% was from supply chain management services.

 

(1) Revenue from sales of commodity products

(2) Revenue from supply chain management services

 

In connection with the Company’s commodity sales, in order to help customers to obtain sufficient funds to purchase various metal products and also help upstream metal and mineral suppliers sell their metal products, the Company launched its supply chain management service business in December 2019, which primarily consisted of loan recommendation services and distribution services. For the three months ended March 31, 2021and 2020, the Company provided commodity distribution services to customers.

 

Commodity Distribution service fees

 

The Company utilizes its strong sales, marketing expertise and customer network to introduce customers to large metal and mineral suppliers, and facilitate the metal product sales between the suppliers and the customers. The Company merely acts as an agent in this type of transaction and earns a commission fee based on the percentage of volume of metal products that customers purchase. Commodity distribution service fees are recognized as revenue when the Company successfully facilitates the sales transactions between the suppliers and the customers.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2021, the Company provided $145,775 commodity distribution services to third party customers compared with $43,647 to the third party customers and $108,837 to related party customers for the same period ended March 31 2020.

 

Loan recommendation service fees

 

The Company recommends customers who have financing need for metal product trading to various financial institutions and assist these customers to obtain loans from the financial institutions and receives a referral fee from the customers if funding is secured. Such revenue is recognized at the point when referral services are performed and the related funds are drawdown by customer. The referral service fee is set at 2.5% of the amount of loans obtained by the customers from the financial institutions. For the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, the Company did not provide such services.

 

Cost of revenue

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Please refer to Note 2 of the Consolidated Condensed Financial Statements included in this Form 10-Q for details of our critical accounting policies.

 

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK 

Not applicable.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Based on an evaluation under the supervision and with the participation of the Company’s management, the Company’s principal executive officer and principal financial officer have concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act were not effective as of March 31, 2021

 

Certain personnel primarily responsible for the preparation of our financial statements require additional requisite levels of knowledge, experience and training in the application of U.S. GAAP commensurate with our financial reporting requirements. The management thought that in light of the inexperience of our accounting staff with respect to the requirements of U.S. GAAP-based reporting and SEC rules and regulations, we did not maintain effective controls and did not implement adequate and proper supervisory review to ensure that significant internal control deficiencies can be detected or prevented.

 

Management’s assessment of the control deficiency over accounting and finance personnel as of March 31, 2021 including:

 

There is a lack of formal procedures with handling different types of revenue recognition.

 

Company management conducted extensive transactions with related parties without adequate control by the Audit Committee and the Board of Directors.

 

There is a lack of procedures and documentation for dealing with related parties.

 

There was no accountant with adequate U.S. GAAP knowledge working in the Company’s Accounting Department. Part of the Company’s U.S. GAAP reporting function was outsourced to external consultant;

 

The Company has insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting, which led to inadequate financial statement closing process.

 

Based on the above factors, management concluded that the control deficiency over accounting and finance personnel was the material weaknesses as of March 31, 2021, as our accounting staff continues to lack sufficient U.S. GAAP experience and requires further substantial training.

 

Limitations on the Effectiveness of Disclosure Controls. Readers are cautioned that our management does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures or our internal control over financial reporting will necessarily prevent all fraud and material error. An internal control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met. Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within the Company have been detected. The design of any system of controls also is based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any control design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.

  

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended March 31, 2021 that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect our internal control over financial reporting.

The Company had invested $1,000,000 in Harrison Fund around May 2019. However, Harrison Fund had been reluctant to disclose related investment information to the Company and it was discovered that certain information presented on Harrison Fund’s brochure appeared to be problematic.
