COLORSTARS GROUP AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Note 1 – Nature of Business and Basis of Presentation

 

Nature of Business –Circletronics Inc., now ColorStars Group (“the Company”), was incorporated in Canada on January 21, 2005. Circletronics Inc.- was redomiciled to Nevada and its name changed to ColorStars Group on November 3, 2005. ColorStars Group owns 100% of the shares of ColorStars Inc.

 

Color Stars Inc. (“Color Stars TW”, “the Subsidiary”) was incorporated as a limited liability company in Taiwan, Republic of China in April 2003 and commenced its operations in May 2003. The Company through its wholly owned Subsidiary is mainly engaged in manufacturing, designing and selling light-emitting diode and lighting equipment.

 

The company signed a joint venture agreement with an entity in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in February of 2019. According to this joint venture agreement the Company will transfer its IPs, trademarks, and technologies in LED lighting to this new joint venture company. The Company will stop the LED lighting business line and pursue other business opportunities, including solar power projects, waste-tire-to-oil systems, and LNG trading projects. There are certain conditions to be met before the Company can start the execution of this joint venture agreement. As of to date, the parties have not closed the jointure agreement due to delay in fund raising of the Saudi Arabian partners. Both parties are endeavoring to resolve this issue and trying to secure the required fund for the project.

 

Basis of Presentation - The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for interim financial information and with the instructions to the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q and Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States for a complete presentation of the financial statements.

 

In the opinion of management, all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals) considered necessary for fair statement of the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the nine months ended September 30, 2019 and 2018 have been included. Operating results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for any subsequent interim period or for the year ending December 31, 2019.

 

The balance sheet at December 31, 2018 included herein was derived from the consolidated financial statements included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K as of that date. Accordingly, the consolidated financial statements included herein should be reviewed in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2018, as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on April 12, 2019.

 

Certain previously reported amounts have been adjusted to conform to current-period presentation, however there is no net effect to the previously-reported financial information.

 

Basis of Consolidation - The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries. All intercompany accounts and transactions have been eliminated.

COLORSTARS GROUP AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

Note 2 - Going Concern

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern. The Company has negative working capital of $434,897 and an accumulated deficit of $4,759,477 as of September 30, 2019, and it reported net losses for past two years. These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. The financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.

 

The Company needs to raise additional capital from external sources or from shareholder loans to support its operation. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain funding with acceptable terms.

 

Note 3 - Concentration of Risk

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2019, products sold to largest customers accounted for approximately 54% of total revenue. No purchases occurred in this period

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2018, products sold to largest customers accounted for approximately 100% of total revenue. Products purchased from largest suppliers accounted for approximately 100% of the total purchases during the nine months ended September 30, 2018.

 

On Feb. 26, 2019, the company signed a joint venture agreement (JVA) with an entity in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA). According to this JVA, the company shall make transfer of its patents, trademarks, and customer list to the new joint company to be formed. The company will also help to build an electronic manufacturing plant in the KSA, and to provide training of its staff and operators for the engineering, manufacturing, and selling of LED lighting products. For the patents and trademarks granted in the JVA, the company shall be compensated with US$1.5 million dollars in cash payment. In addition, for the technology and training support, the company shall be awarded with US$2.65 million dollars in the form of shares in the new joint venture company, calculated based on fair price. The closing conditions for the cash payment and the shares granted for the joint venture company are mainly (1) government approvals for the investment in the joint venture company for both parties, (2) formation of the joint company, and (3) board approval of the joint venture company to undertake activities in the JVA. We are not sure when the Company will start the execution of the JVA and will receive the cash payment and share grants of the joint venture company. There is no consideration exchanged between the parties as of to date.

 

Note 4 - Long Term Investments

 

The Company adopted the provisions of ASC 820, which require us to determine the fair value of financial assets and liabilities using a specified fair-value hierarchy. The objective of the fair-value measurement of our financial instruments is to reflect the hypothetical amounts at which we could sell an asset or transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (exit price). ASC 820 describes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value, as follows:

 

Level 1 value is based on observable inputs that reflect quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

 

 9 

 

 

COLORSTARS GROUP AND SUBSIDIARIES

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Overview

 

(a) Business Overview.

 

ColorStars Group (“we”, “us”, “our”, the “Company”) was initially incorporated in the Province of Ontario, Canada on January 21, 2005. On November 3, 2005, we converted to a Nevada corporation. We have historically operated as a vertically integrated lighting company that develops light emitting diodes (“LED”) based lighting products for general consumer applications as well as LED lighting products for professional lighting installations. Our LED lighting application development activity has historically ranged from LED packaging to optical lens and heat management, from retrofit LED lamps and bulbs to lighting fixtures designed for general and special lighting applications. Due to environmental changes in 2018 adversely affecting the LED lighting market, in 2018 the Company began to phase out of the LED lighting market and change its business model into a holding company to acquire and operate other companies. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to acquire any operating companies.

 

(b) Material Transactions During the Reporting Period.

 

None.

There are no legal proceedings that have occurred within the past five years concerning our directors or control persons which involved a criminal conviction, a criminal proceeding, an administrative or civil proceeding limiting one’s participation in the securities or banking industries, or finding of securities or commodities law violations.

 

On September 17, 2018, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“Commission”) announced the temporary suspension of trading in the securities of the Company, commencing at 9:30 a.m. EDT on September 18, 2018 and terminating at 11:59 p.m. EDT on October 1, 2018. The Commission temporarily suspended trading in the securities of the Company due to a lack of current and accurate information about the Company because it has not filed certain periodic reports with the Commission. This order was entered pursuant to Section 12(k) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (“Exchange Act”) and was accompanied by an Order Instituting Administrative Proceedings and Notice of Hearing (the “Proceeding”) pursuant to Section 12(j) of the Exchange Act. The stated purpose of the order and hearing is for the Commission to determine whether it is necessary and appropriate to continue the suspension in the trading of the securities of the Company for a period not exceeding twelve months, or to revoke the registration of the Company’s securities pursuant to Section 12 of the Exchange Act. The Company filed an Answer in the Proceeding on September 26, 2018.

 

On October 18, 2018, the Company had a pre-hearing telephone conference with the Commission regarding the Proceeding. During the pre-hearing conference, it was agreed that the Commission’s motion for summary disposition against the Company was due on November 15, 2018; the Company’s opposition brief was due on December 13, 2018; and that the Commission’s reply brief was due on December 20, 2018, and such filings were made. In the pre-hearing telephone conference with the Commission, the Commission offered the Company the alternative to consent to the revocation of the registration of the Company’s securities pursuant to Section 12 of the Exchange Act to avoid the time and cost associated with contesting the Proceeding. If the Company were to consent to the revocation of its registration, the Company would then need to file a registration statement (with two years of audited financials) with the Commission and cause that registration statement to become effective in order to reinstate the registration of the Company’s securities. It is the Company’s understanding from the pre-hearing conference with the Commission that the only remedy the Commission has for delinquent filers such as the Company, even if the filer becomes current by the date of the hearing, is the revocation of the registration of the Company’s securities pursuant to Section 12 of the Exchange Act. Therefore, the Company cannot provide any assurances that it will be able to avoid the revocation of the registration of the Company’s securities pursuant to Section 12 of the Exchange Act due to the Company becoming delinquent in its filings. If the registration of the Company’s securities is revoked, the Company intends to file a registration statement with the Commission to reinstate the registration of the Company’s securities. The Company cannot provide any assurances as to the timing of the filing and effectiveness of such a registration statement.
