AGM : MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS (Form 6-K)

09/29/2021 | 05:12pm EST

MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

You should read the following discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations in conjunction with our audited consolidated financial statements as well as the section titled "Item 5. Operating and Financial Review and Prospects" included in our Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2020 (our "Form 20-F"). This discussion contains forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Our actual results and the timing of selected events could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including those set forth under "Risk Factors" in our Form 20-F.

Overview

The Company derives revenue from the sale of packaged software products, technical support plans, software customization services, and bundle of products or services that may include a combination of these items. We enter into contracts with customers that include promises to transfer various products and services, which are generally distinct and accounted for as separate performance obligations. Revenue is recognized when the promised goods or services are transferred to customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration allocated to the respective performance obligation. We recorded and recognized revenues from both products and services in one account, which we present as revenues and revenues from related parties in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income. During the six months ended June 30, 2020, the Company derived revenue from the sales of the following three items:

(1) Retail Software Products

The Company's packaged software products consist of accounting software, fintech software, trading education software products and other online based management products. Revenue is recognized at a point in time upon the delivery of the perpetual license, and in a period of time throughout the effective period for the technical support plan, which generally is recognized over a six month period.

(2) Technical Support Plans

The Company sells its technical support plan either as a package with its sale of software products or separately on its own. Each technical support plan has a unified effective period of one year. Revenue is recognized in a period of time throughout the effective period for the technical support plan, generally is recognized over a six month period.

(3) Software Customization Services

The Company delivers its software customization services by developing customized features on the software products to suit customers' special needs. Upon receiving the purchase request from the customers, the Company designs, develops, tests, and implements the specified features to our software products. The Company also includes a one-year technical support plan specifically for the developed feature(s).

Customers can request and purchase the service together with a purchase of our software product, or separately if the customer has our software products in-use. Revenue is recognized at a point in time upon customers' acceptance of the feature(s), and revenue for the technical support plan is recognized over its service term, which generally is for six months period.

We did not generate revenue during the six months ended June 30, 2021, primarily due to the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Company's operations. Our partnership with an Australian licensed broker for social trading and educational website service was delayed due to frequent lockdowns in Australia and China caused by the pandemic. We have resumed discussions with the Australian broker and expect to enter into a definitive agreement during the fourth quarter of 2021. For more detailed information about our recent development and growth strategies, see "Recent Development" and "Growth Strategies".

Costs and Expenses

We primarily incur the following costs and expenses:

Costs of revenues. Our cost of revenues consists primarily of the salaries, payroll taxes and employee benefit costs of our technology and management services associate and other operations personnel. Cost of revenues also includes direct information technology costs and facilities support costs directly related to our services.

Selling, general and administrative expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses consist primarily of compensation expense for our corporate staff and personnel supporting our corporate staff, marketing costs, office supplies, welfare expenses, training expenses, professional fees (including consulting, audit and legal fees), travel and business hospitality expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses also include depreciation and amortization expenses. We record property and equipment at cost and calculate depreciation using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of our assets, which generally range from three to five years.

Research and development expenses. Research and development expenses consist primarily of compensation expense for our staff in research and development teams, including the salaries, payroll taxes, employee benefit costs and facilities support costs related to our research and development.

Bad debt expenses. Based on our periodic review of accounts receivable balances, we adjusted the allowance for doubtful accounts after considering management's evaluation of the collectability of individual receivable balances, including the analysis of subsequent collections, the customers' collection history, the write off of uncollectible receivables against the existing reserve, and recent economic events.

Recent Developments

With two recent executive hires, Mr. Bo Zhu as Chief Strategy Officer ("CSO"), and Mr. Li Chenjun as Co-Chief Executive Officer ("Co-CEO"), on June 2021, and July 2021 respectively, the Company decided to enter into new business lines: ASIC chip research and development and crypto mining equipment manufacturing and sales.

The newly appointed executives, Co-CEO Mr. Chenjun Li and CSO Mr. Bo Zhu, each has significant experience and industry resources in chip designs and blockchain applications. As one of the pioneers in the ASIC chip design area, Mr. Chenjun Li has extensive experience in the chip production supply chain. In 2013, the Co-CEO, Mr. Chenjun Li, designed the first-generation ASIC applicable to Bitcoin computing and successfully completed the mass production of 16nm and 10nm ASIC chips at TMSC and Samsung in 2015 and 2017, respectively. The CSO, Mr. Bo Zhu. has a significant understanding of the blockchain technology application, as well as a well-known reputation and extensive network within the industry due to the extended time spent in high-performance computing research in the past years.

In August 2021, the Company announced the launch of its first ASIC crypto Miner - KOI MINER C16 ("C16"). C16 is equipped with the C3012 chip made by Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp.'s N+1 process. C16 has a hash rate up to 113 TH/s and a power efficiency ratio of 30 J/T, supporting the mining of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and other cryptocurrencies.

With increased institutional investment and attention to blockchain and cryptocurrencies, many large listed crypto mining companies in the United States and Canada have demonstrated a huge demand for high-end Bitcoin miners, and we expect that our C16 miners have the opportunity to secure a considerable amount of orders in this trend. C16 is expected to launch sales in the United States, Canada and Europe.

In order to achieve our mission as stated in the new growth strategy announced in August 2021: to become one of the key participants and contributors in the global blockchain ecosystem, we incorporated a wholly owned limited liability subsidiary, Nanjing Lucun Semiconductor Co. Ltd., in China on June 17, 2021. We also established two wholly owned subsidiaries, AGM Defi Lab Pte Limited in Singapore and AGM Defi Tech Limited in Hong Kong on July 30, 2021 and August 8, 2021, respectively, for providing software development and consulting services in Asian areas. We plan to establish office and research center in Hongkong and Singapore as those regions have cleared regulatory framework towards crypto assets and blockchain technology and hire more senior professional.

In September 2021, we entered into a strategic partnership agreement with HighSharp (Shenzhen Gaorui) Electronic Technology Co., Ltd ("HighSharp"), a fabless integrated circuit designer that provides advanced semiconductor solutions for supercomputing hardware, pursuant to which, for a six-month period until March 25, 2022, HighSharp will provide the latest ASIC chip technology and manufacturing services to the Company and the Company will be responsible for client development on a global basis, with a target to generate orders in a total amount of US$100 million during the six-month term until March 25, 2022. If the Company and HighSharp achieve their respective targets, the Company and HighSharp plan to form a joint venture, joined by HighSharp's key R&D team members, with the goal to integrate next generation product research and development into fabless integrated circuit design capabilities that provides advanced semiconductor solutions for supercomputing hardware. The Company will own 60% equity and HighSharp will own 40% equity in the joint venture. See "Risk Factors - We are exposed to the uncertainty with respect to China's crackdown on cryptocurrency-related business."

In April 2021, the Board of Director of the Company (the "Board") approved the resignation of Mr. Tingfu Xie as director, Chairman of the Nominating Committee, a member of the Audit Committee and the Compensation Committee of the Company. the Board appointed Ms. Jing Shi as the succeeding director, chairwoman of the Nominating Committee and a member of the Audit Committee and the Compensation Committee of the Company, effective April 30, 2021. Ms. Shi has had extensive experience at various investment companies with regard to financial management and account operations.

In September 2021, since the employment agreement between the Company and Mr. Bin Cao, then Chairman of the Company, expired, the Board terminated the employment with Mr. Bin Cao and removed him from all position in the Company. The Board approved the appointment of Mr. Chenjun Li, Co-CEO of the Company, as director and Chairman of the Board, effective September 15, 2021, until the next annual shareholder meeting or until his earlier death, resignation or removal.

In September 2021, the Company appointed Mr. Steven Yuan Ning Sim as the Chief Financial Officer after the resignation of the former Chief Financial Officer, Zhihe Yang. Mr. Sim has over 15 years of audit and financial management experience and is a member of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA). The appointment is for a term of one year or until his earlier death, resignation or removal.

Growth Strategies

The Company formed new growth strategy in August 2021.

The Company is now positioned as an integrated technology company focusing on blockchain-oriented ASIC chip design, advanced crypto miner production, and fintech software service, with company's mission: becoming one of the key participants and contributors in the global blockchain ecosystem.

Our growth strategy mainly focusing on crypto miner business and high-performance ASIC chip research and development and supplemented by development of blockchain and fintech applications. We have assembled a team of industry veterans in high-performance chip designs and blockchain applications to support its growth strategy.

Our executives in charge of chip and crypto miner business entered the ASIC chip field back in 2013 and was one of the pioneers within the industry. With extensive experience and industry resources, the Company is able to ensure the stability of the supply chain and secure the supplies to crypto mining operators during the global chip shortage.

In August 2021, the Company announced the launch of its first ASIC crypto Miner - KOI MINER C16 ("C16"). C16 is equipped with the C3012 chip made by Semiconductor Manufacturing International Corp.'s N+1 process. C16 has a hash rate up to 113 TH/s and a power efficiency ratio of 30 J/T, supporting the mining of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash and other cryptocurrencies. C16's parameters have surpassed its peer miners including Bitmain's Antminer S19 pro and Canaan's AvalonMiner1246.

In blockchain and fintech application areas, we launched a financial training network web service back to June 2019. It targets the beginner and intermediate users and help them to improve their basic trading skills and be more familiar with knowledge of modern trading software and financial markets. Fintech product team remain actively research and seek opportunities to introduce blockchain-based NFT and Defi technologies into existing products, aiming to provide more values to clients and bring more knowledge of blockchain and crypto assets to clients.

Corporate Governance

As a "foreign private issuer," as defined by the SEC, we are permitted to follow home country corporate governance practices, instead of certain corporate governance practices required by Nasdaq for domestic issuers, with certain exceptions. While we voluntarily follow most Nasdaq corporate governance rules, we have elected to follow British Virgin Islands law instead of the Nasdaq Rule 5635(d), which requires shareholder approval in order to enter into any transaction, other than a public offering, involving the sale, issuance or potential issuance by the Company of ordinary shares (or securities convertible into or exercisable for ordinary shares) equal to 20% or more of the outstanding share capital of the Company or 20% or more of the voting power outstanding before the issuance for less than the greater of book or market value of the ordinary shares. We will follow British Virgin Islands law with respect to any requirement to obtain shareholder approval in connection with any private placements of equity securities.

The Consolidated Balance Sheets balances, with the exception of equity at June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, were translated at RMB6.4576 and RMB6.5378 to $1.00, respectively. The equity accounts were stated at their historical rate. The average translation rates applied to the Consolidated Statements of Operations and Comprehensive Income and the Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020 were RMB6.4682 and RMB7.0312 to $1.00, respectively.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Liquidity

Liquidity is the ability of a company to generate funds to support its current and future operations, satisfy its obligations and otherwise operate on an ongoing basis. As of June 30, 2021 and December 31, 2020, we had working capital of $3,017,611 and $3,663,177, including cash and cash equivalents of $461,010 and $664,605, respectively. As a result, we believe that our current cash and cash to be generated from our operations will be sufficient to meet our working capital needs for at least the next twelve months. We are not dependent upon the access to borrow loans from our related parties. We plan to expand our business to implement our growth strategies to broaden our service and strengthen our position in the marketplace.

The following table sets forth a summary of changes in our working capital from December 31, 2020 to June 30, 2021:

June 30,
2021
December 31,
2020
Change Percentage
Change
Working capital:
Total current assets $ 5,876,879 $ 6,085,521 $ (208,642 ) (3 )%
Total current liabilities 2,859,269 2,422,344 436,925 18 %
Working capital $ 3,017,610 $ 3,663,177 $ (645,567 ) (18 )%

Because the exchange rate conversion is different for the consolidated balance sheets and the consolidated statements of cash flows, the changes in assets and liabilities reflected on the consolidated statements of cash flows are not necessarily identical with the comparable changes reflected on the consolidated balance sheets.

No cash spent in financing activities of continuing operations for the six months ended June 30, 2020. Net cash used in financing activities of discontinued operations was $65,295 for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

We expect to incur additional costs associated with becoming a public company in the United States, primarily due to increased expenses related to accounting and tax services, legal expenses and investor and stockholder-related expenses. These additional long-term expenses may require us to seek other sources of financing, such as additional borrowings or public or private equity or debt capital. The availability of these other sources of financing will depend upon our financial condition and results of operations as well as prevailing market conditions and may not be available on terms reasonably acceptable to us or at all.

Critical Accounting Policies

The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations are based upon our audited consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these audited consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses. We evaluate our estimates on an ongoing basis, including those related to revenue recognition and income taxes. We base our estimates on our historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making the judgments we make about the carrying values of our assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Because these estimates can vary depending on the situation, actual results may differ from the estimates.

The critical accounting policies summarized in this section are discussed in further detail in the notes to the audited consolidated financial statements appearing elsewhere in this annual report. Management believes that the application of these policies on a consistent basis enables us to provide useful and reliable financial information about our operating results and financial condition.

Revenue Recognition

The Company adopted Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers ("ASC 606") for all years presented. The core principle of this new revenue standard is that a company should recognize revenue when control of the promised goods or services is transferred to the customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The following five steps are applied to achieve that core principle by the Company in its determination of revenue recognition:

Step 1: Identify the contract(s) with the customer;
Step 2: Identify the performance obligations in the contract;
Step 3: Determine the transaction price;
Step 4: Allocate the transaction price to the performance obligations in the contract; and
Step 5: Recognize revenue when or as the Company satisfies a performance obligation.

The transaction price is allocated to each performance obligation on a relative standalone selling price basis. The transaction price allocated to each performance obligation is recognized when that performance obligation is satisfied, at a point in time or over time as appropriate.

The Company derives revenue from the sale of packaged software products, technical support plans, software customization services, and bundle of products or services that may include a combination of these items. We enter into contracts with customers that include promises to transfer various products and services, which are generally capable of being distinct and accounted for as separate performance obligations. Revenue is recognized when the promised goods or services are transferred to customers, in an amount that reflects the consideration allocated to the respective performance obligation. We recorded and recognized revenues from both products and services in one account, which we present as revenues and revenues from related parties in the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income.

Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities on the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. We base our 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 by management include, among others, useful lives and impairment of long-lived assets, allowance for doubtful accounts, income taxes including the valuation allowance for deferred tax assets. While we believe that the estimates and assumptions used in the preparation of the 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 financial statements in the period they are determined to be necessary.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

ASC 825 requires the disclosure of the estimated fair value of financial instruments including those financial instruments for which fair value option was not elected.

The Company's financial instruments mainly include cash and cash equivalents, transaction monetary assets held for clients, mark to market assets for open trading positions, net accounts receivable, prepaid expenses and other current assets, accounts payable, deposits payable, mark to market liabilities for open trading positions, accrued expenses and other current liabilities, advance from customers, and income tax payable. The carrying values of these financial instruments approximate their fair values due to short-term maturities.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In December 2019, the FASB issued ASU 2019-12 - Income Taxes (Topic 740): Simplifying the Accounting for Income Taxes. This ASU provides an exception to the general methodology for calculating income taxes in an interim period when a year-to-date loss exceeds the anticipated loss for the year. This update also (1) requires an entity to recognize a franchise tax (or similar tax) that is partially based on income as an income-based tax and account for any incremental amount incurred as a non-income-based tax, (2) requires an entity to evaluate when a step-up in the tax basis of goodwill should be considered part of the business combination in which goodwill was originally recognized for accounting purposes and when it should be considered a separate transaction, and (3) requires that an entity reflect the effect of an enacted change in tax laws or rates in the annual effective tax rate computation in the interim period that includes the enactment date. The standard is effective for the Company for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2020, with early adoption permitted. The Company is currently in the process of evaluating the impact of the adoption on its consolidated financial statements.

A variety of proposed or otherwise potential accounting standards are currently under study by standard setting organizations and various regulatory agencies. Due to the tentative and preliminary nature of those proposed standards, we have not determined whether implementation of such proposed standards would be material to our consolidated financial statements.
