NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

DECEMBER 31, 2020 AND JUNE 30, 2020 (AUDITED)

 

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”), an owner 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 (“LLC”) 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 own 100% of Shuhai Skill (HK), transferred all of the issued and outstanding ordinary shares of Shuhai Skill (HK) to the Company for the issuance of 6,666,667 shares of Common Stock, causing Shuhai Skill (HK) and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Tianjin Information Sea Information Technology Co., Ltd. (“Tianjin Information”), a LLC incorporated under the laws of the PRC, and Harbin Information Sea Information Technology Co., Ltd., a LLC incorporated under the laws of the PRC, to become wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company; and Shuhai Information Technology Co., Ltd., also a LLC 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, Zhixin Liu and her father, Fu Liu, owned approximately 82% of the Company’s 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 statement (“CFS”) at June 30, 2018 were retroactively adjusted to reflect the reverse split.

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying CFS 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 six months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company had a net loss of $1.83 million and $1.60 million, respectively The Company has an accumulated deficit of $9.24 million as of December 31, 2020 and negative cash flow from operating activities of $1.85 million for the six months ended December 31, 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 to provide remedy and prevention for the possible 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 depends 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 approved by SEC. The Company may from time to time issue up to $100,000,000 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.

 

The Company raised $931,000 in equity on November 11, 2020 from Triton Fund and signed an underwriting agreement with FT Global to prepare for its next round of financing.

BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND CONSOLIDATION

 

The accompanying CFS were 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 CFS 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, Guozhong Times, Guohao Century, Guozhong Haoze, and Jingwei, and Guohao Century’s 69.81% owned subsidiary - Zhangxun. All significant inter-company transactions and balances were eliminated in consolidation. 

 

The interim consolidated financial information as of December 31, 2020 and for the six and three-month periods ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 was prepared without audit. Certain information and footnote disclosures, which are normally included in CFS prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP were not included. The interim consolidated financial information should be read in conjunction with the Financial Statements and the notes thereto, included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, previously filed with the SEC on September 28, 2020.

 

In the opinion of management, all adjustments (which include all significant normal and recurring adjustments) necessary to present a fair statement of the Company’s consolidated financial position as of December 31, 2020, its consolidated results of operations and cash flows for the six and three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, as applicable, were made. 

  

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 CFS, 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 were included in the accompanying CFS. 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.

USE OF ESTIMATES 

 

The preparation of CFS 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 CFS 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 CFS.

 

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 December 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020, 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.  

 

RESTRICTED CASH / ESCROW

 

Restricted cash is cash held in an indemnification escrow account under requirements of the financing agreement signed with the underwriter of the Company’s initial public offering for 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. The restricted cash was released during the six months ended December 31, 2020.

 

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 $47,593 and $44,237 allowances for slow-moving and obsolete inventory as of December 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020, respectively.

 

10

 

 

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.

 

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

 

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

 

As of December 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020, the Company did not identify any assets or liabilities required to be presented on the balance sheet at FV.

 

11

 

 

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.

 

If such assets are considered impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured as the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its FV. FV 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 FV less cost to sell. For the six and three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, there was no impairment loss recognized on long-lived assets.

 

DEFERRED REVENUE

 

Deferred revenue consists primarily of local government’s financial support under “2020 Harbin Eyas Plan” to Xunrui for technology innovation of developing the Intelligent Campus Security Management Platform. The Company will record the grant as income when it passes local government’s inspection of the project. 

 

LEASES

  

On July 1, 2019, the Company adopted FASB ASC 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 FASB ASC Topic 842, while prior period amounts have not been adjusted and continue to be reported in accordance with its historical accounting under FASB ASC 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 keep leases with an initial term of 12 months or less off its balance sheet and recognize the associated lease payments in the consolidated statements of operations 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 FASB ASC 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 December 31, 2020, the net ROU was $1,736,937 for the operating leases of the Company’s offices in various cities of China and senior officers’ dormitory in Beijing. At December 31, 2020, total operating lease liabilities (includes current and noncurrent) was $1,726,190, which was for the operating leases of the Company’s offices in various cities of China and senior officers’ dormitory in Beijing.

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 accumulated deficit 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 FASB 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 when control of goods and services transfers to a customer.

 

FASB ASC Topic 606 requires use of a new five-step model to recognize revenue from customer contracts. The five-step model requires 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 FASB 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 product sales and professional service contracts with its customers, with revenues 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 FASB 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 FASB 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. FASB 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.

 

13

 

 

Under the provisions of FASB ASC Topic 740, when tax returns are filed, it is likely 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, 2020, the Company had no unrecognized tax benefits and no charges during the six and three months ended December 31, 2020, and accordingly, the Company did not recognize any interest or penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits. There was no accrual for uncertain tax positions as of December 31, 2020. The Company files U.S. income tax return. With few exceptions, the Company’s U.S. income tax returns 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 incurred. These costs primarily consist of cost of materials used, salaries paid for the Company’s development department, and fees paid to third parties.

 

NONCONTROLLING INTERESTS

 

The Company follows FASB ASC Topic 810, “Consolidation,” governing the accounting for and reporting of noncontrolling interests (“NCIs”) in partially owned consolidated subsidiaries and the loss of control of subsidiaries. Certain provisions of this standard indicate, among other things, that NCI (previously referred to as minority interests) be treated as a separate component of equity, not as a liability, that increases and decreases in the parent’s ownership interest that leave control intact be treated as equity transactions rather than as step acquisitions or dilution gains or losses, and that losses of a partially-owned consolidated subsidiary be allocated to non-controlling interests even when such allocation might result in a deficit balance. 

 

The net income (loss) attributed to NCI was separately designated in the accompanying statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss). Losses attributable to NCI in a subsidiary may exceed an non-controlling interest’s interests in the subsidiary’s equity. The excess attributable to NCIs is attributed to those interests. NCIs shall continue to be attributed their share of losses even if that attribution results in a deficit NCIs balance.

 

As of December 31, 2020, Zhangxun was 30.19% owned by noncontolling interest, and Shuhai Nanjing was 1% owned by noncontrolling interest. During the six and three months ended December 31, 2020, the Company had loss of $36,555 and $36,555 attributable to the noncontrolling interest, 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 ($76,000) is covered by insurance. Should any institution 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 $439,678 and $733,849 at December 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020, respectively, was 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 December 31, 2020, cash of $210,595 was maintained at U.S. financial institutions. 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 ($64,000). As of December 31, 2020, the cash balance of $24,123 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 dollar (“USD”) The accounts of the Chinese entities were translated into USD in accordance with FASB 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 FASB 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 CFS were as follows

 

   December 31,   December 31,   June 30, 
   2020   2019   2020 
Period end USD: RMB exchange rate   6.5249    6.9632    7.0795 
Average USD: RMB exchange rate   6.7729    7.0711    7.0199 

  

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 six and three months ended December 31, 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. For the six months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company’s basic and diluted loss per share were $0.09 and $0.08, respectively; for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, the Company’s basic and diluted loss per share were $0.05 and $0.05, respectively.  

 

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 June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326), which requires entities to measure all expected credit losses for financial assets held at the reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts. This replaces the existing incurred loss model and is applicable to the measurement of credit losses on financial assets measured at amortized cost. This guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2022. Early application will be permitted for all entities for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company is currently evaluating the impact that the standard will have on its CFS.

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 of this update on its CFS.

NOTE 9 – 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 U.S. parent company is subject to U.S. income tax rate of 21% and files U.S. federal income tax return.  As of December 31, 2020, the U.S. entity had net operating loss (“NOL”) carry forwards for income tax purposes of $567,133. The NOL arising in tax years beginning after 2017 may reduce 80% of a taxpayer’s taxable income, and be carried forward indefinitely. However, the coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (“the CARES Act”) issued in March 2020, provides tax relief to both corporate and noncorporate taxpayers by adding a five-year carryback period and temporarily repealing the 80% limitation for NOLs arising in 2018, 2019 and 2020. 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, Guozhong Times, Guozhong Haoze, Guohao Century, Jingwei, Shuhai Nanjing, Zhangxun are subject to the regular 25% PRC income tax rate.

 

As of December 31, 2020, the Company has approximately $6.62 million of NOL from 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 depends 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 December 31, 2020 and June 30, 2020.

 

The following table reconciles the U.S. statutory rates to the Company’s effective tax rate for the six months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019:

 

   2020   2019 
US federal statutory rates   (21.0)%   (21.0)%

Permanent difference    %   -%
Effect of PRC tax holiday   1.9%   10.0%
Valuation allowance   22.7%   15.0%
Effective tax rate   -%   -%

 

The income tax benefit for the six months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 were approximately $330,600 and $179,700, respectively; the income tax benefit for the three months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 were approximately $203,300 and $131,100, respectively; the income tax benefit was primarily related to losses generated from U.S. and PRC operations, but were offset by valuation allowance provided against its deferred tax assets.

Overview

 

We were incorporated in the State of Nevada on September 26, 2014 under the name Rose Rock Inc. and changed our name to Datasea Inc. on May 27, 2015 by amending our 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, an 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 (“LLC”) 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 for the issuance 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 LLC incorporated under the laws of the PRC, and Harbin Information Sea Information Technology Co., Ltd., a LLC incorporated under the laws of the PRC, to become wholly-owned subsidiaries of the Company, and Shuhai Information Technology Co., Ltd., also a LLC 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 Company’s 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 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.

 

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 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 and subsequently released. The Company sold 1,667,500 shares of common stock (including shares issued pursuant to the underwriter’s over-allotment option) at $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.”

 

On October 22, 2020, the Company entered into a common stock purchase agreement with Triton Funds LP (“Triton”). Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, subject to certain conditions set forth in the Purchase Agreement, Triton was obligated, pursuant to a purchase notice by the Company, to purchase up to $2 million of the Company’s common stock from time to time through December 31, 2020. The Company is precluded from submitting a purchase notice to Triton if the closing price is less than $1.65 per share as reported on the Nasdaq Stock Market.

 

24

 

 

On November 11, 2020, the Company and Triton closed an equity financing for the issuance of 520,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at $1.80 per share, the Company received $931,000 proceeds from the financing after deducting $5,000 expenses.

 

Effective as of November 10, 2020, the Company has exercised its right to terminate the Agreement for any reason.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

We have funded our operations to date primarily through the sales of our common stock and shareholder loans. 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.

 

We expect to generate revenue through expanding our current Safe Campus business, promoting Epidemic related 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 December 31, 2020, we had a working capital of $1,048,803 or a current ratio of 1.81:1. Our current assets were $2,345,998. As of June 30, 2020, we had a working capital of $2,609,032 excluding the restricted cash of $600,000 (or a current ratio of 4.78:1). Our current assets on June 30, 2020 were $3,298,523 excluding the restricted cash of $600,000.

 

We expect the Company will continue to support its operations and investment plans through its financing activities. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to secure such additional working capital on commercially viable terms or at all. 

 

The following is a summary of cash provided by or used in each of the indicated types of activities during the six months ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, respectively.

 

   2020   2019 
Net cash used in operating activities
  $(1,846,292)  $(2,972,242)
Net cash used in investing activities  $(99,696)  $(208,538)
Net cash provided by (used in) financing activities  $931,000   $(84,227)

Cash Flow from Operating Activities

 

Net cash used in operating activities was $1,846,292 during the six months ended December 31, 2020, compared to net cash used in operating activities of $2,972,242 during the six months ended December 31, 2019, a decrease of cash outflow by $1,125,950. The decrease in cash outflow was mainly due to decreased cash outflow for prepaid expenses including prepayment for developing the Tour Site Security system and the Facial Recognition and Eye Protection system by $1.10 million.

 

Intelligent payment

 

From late August to December, Datasea signed agreements with institutions to provide big data value-added services. As part of such service agreements, Datasea installs hardware equipment and software, performs regular maintenance, and hosts software operations training sessions, in exchange for 0.38% of the transaction value of each transaction utilizing the Company’s technology.

 

5G message

 

Shuhai Zhangxun is dedicated to exploring 5G value-added services (e.g., 5G messaging) opportunities brought by the combination and extension of the Company’s smart security platform, big data platform and other technology capabilities currently owned by Datasea. 5G messaging will help upgrade and reinforce our offerings in the smart security solutions and other business lines into which we have tapped.

 

Cash Flow from Investing Activities

 

Net cash used in investing activities totaled $99,696 for the six months ended December 31, 2020, which primarily was for cash paid for the acquisition of office furniture and equipment and leasehold improvements of $91,214, and for intangible assets of $8,482. Net cash used in investing activities totaled $208,538 for the six months ended December 31, 2019, which primarily related to cash paid for the acquisition of office furniture and equipment of $208,538.

 

Cash Flow from Financing Activities

 

Net cash provided by financing activities was $931,000 during the six months ended December 31, 2020, which was the net proceeds from sale of our common stock through an equity financing. Net cash used in financing activities was $84,227 during the six months ended December 31, 2019, which primarily consisted of payment of a shareholder loan, net of $84,227. It is expected that the Company will continue to support its operations and investment plans through its financing activities.

 

Going forward

 

We anticipate that the intelligent security system and solutions applied in schools and communities, intelligent payment systems, and 5G messaging to be our main business focus in the future with development highly dependent on domestic PRC market demands.

 

Datasea continuously considering various expansion opportunities in terms of value-added services in areas of data platform integrated with intelligent security platform. We believe that for the business development, Hangzhou Datasea Ltd., a Datasea subsidiary, will play a pivotal role to promote 5G Messaging Service.

 

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

 

There are no off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues, expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURES ABOUT MARKET RISK

 

This item is not applicable as we are currently considered a smaller reporting company.

 

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As required by Rule 13a-15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer evaluated our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that as of the end of the period covered by this report, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective. This conclusion was reached in light of the following material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting:

 

(i) inadequate segregation of duties and effective risk assessment;

 

(ii) lack of personnel adequately trained in U.S. GAAP; and

 

(iii) insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of both U.S. GAAP and SEC guidelines.

 

In order to remediate the foregoing weaknesses, the Company has undertaken the following steps:

 

Adopted internal control policies, including, but not limited to, budget approval process, procurement and assets control, cash flow control, travel allowance, reimbursement, credit control, internal auditing and a cost accounting, review of the accounting professional duties and responsibilities handbook.

 

Established an internal audit department led by the director of internal audit and a legal team to ensure proper compliance and risk management, training internal staff such as financial department, marketing department and senior management team.

 

Established international department to enhance the compliance and financing management in the international capital markets.

 

Engaged a new China-based legal counsel to strengthen the Company’s operational compliance across markets in China.

 

In addition, we have adopted internal control policies, including but not limited to, review of the accounting personnel duties and responsibilities handbook, a travel allowance policy, a reimbursement policy, a receivable policy, an asset control policy, an internal auditing policy and a cost accounting policy. In addition, we established an internal audit department led by the director of internal audit and a legal team to ensure proper compliance and risk management.

 

We plan to strengthen our internal control management procedures in the following aspects:

 

  To review and evaluate the design and implementation of the above policies and procedures if it is sufficient to comply with internal control and to determine if the implementation effort is effective;

 

To remediate the unproper control points and strengthen the policy controls, especially to re-design and re-issue assets management regulations with procurement and inventory management procedures to strengthen the control;

 

To design new policies as per the growth of sales and new projects, to regulate sales and cash collection control procedures, revenue recognition policy, and new project initial setup procedure and business model setup procedure;

 

  To carry out the walkthrough test, the 1st and 2nd round tests of internal controls by ending of June 2021, and to design an action plan, then communicate with management team, department head(s) and related personnel;

 

To train the related personnel to execute the internal control policies and procedures; and

 

To summarize the internal control /audit reports quarterly to Audit Committee.

 

We expect to further implement the following measures in the fiscal year ending June 30, 2021. The remediation efforts set out above are largely dependent upon our generating more revenue to cover the costs of implementing the changes required.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Other than as described above, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended December 31, 2020 that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
