China Agritech Inc. (the “Company” or “China Agritech”) is a holding company whose direct and indirect subsidiaries manufacture and sell organic liquid compound fertilizers, organic granular compound fertilizers and related agricultural products. The Company conducts its business operations primarily through its subsidiaries including Anhui Agritech Agriculture Development Limited (“Anhui Agritech”), Beijing Agritech Fertilizer Ltd. (“Beijing Agritech”), China Tailong Holdings Company Limited (“Tailong”) and Pacific Dragon Fertilizers Co. Ltd. (“Pacific Dragon”). The Company’s revenues are derived from the sale of fertilizers and related agricultural products to customers.
 
Changes in Capital Structure
 
On September 8, 2009, the Company effected a reverse split of its common stock on the basis of one share for every four outstanding shares, so that every four outstanding shares of common stock before the reverse stock split was converted into one share of common stock after the reverse stock split. On February 1, 2010, the Company effected a 2 for 1 forward split of its common stock on the basis of two shares for every one outstanding shares, so that every outstanding share of common stock before the forward stock split was converted into two shares of common stock after the forward stock split. Except as otherwise noted, all references to common share and per common share amounts (including warrant and option shares, shares reserved for issuance and applicable exercise prices) for all periods presented in these consolidated financial statements have been retroactively restated to reflect the reverse and forward splits.
 
2.           BASIS OF PRESENTATION
 
These consolidated financial statements include the accounts of China Agritech and all of its subsidiaries. All significant inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

3.           RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUCEMENTS
 
Effective January 1, 2010, the Company adopted the provisions in ASU 2009-17, “Consolidation (ASC Topic 810): Improvements to Financial Reporting by Enterprises Involved with Variable Interest Entities”, which changes how a company determines when an entity that is insufficiently capitalized or is not controlled through voting (or similar rights) should be consolidated. The adoption of the provisions in ASU 2009-17 did not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
Effective January 1, 2010, the Company adopted ASU 2010-01, “Equity (ASC Topic 505): Accounting for Distributions to Shareholders with Components of Stock and Cash”, which clarifies that the stock portion of a distribution to shareholders that allow them to elect to receive cash or stock with a potential limitation on the total amount of cash that all shareholders can elect to receive in the aggregate is considered a share issuance that is reflected prospectively in earnings per share and is not considered a stock dividend for purposes of ASC Topic 505 and ASC Topic 260. The adoption of the provisions in ASU 2010-01 did not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
Effective January 1, 2010, the Company adopted the provisions in ASU 2010-06, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (ASC Topic 820): Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements, which requires new disclosures related to transfers in and out of levels 1 and 2 and activity in level 3 fair value measurements, as well as amends existing disclosure requirements on level of disaggregation and inputs and valuation techniques. The adoption of the provisions in ASU 2010-06 did not have an impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
Other accounting standards that have been issued or proposed by the FASB or other standards-setting bodies that do not require adoption until a future date are not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements upon adoption.
 
4.           EARNINGS PER SHARE
 
Basic earnings per share is based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted earnings per share is based on the assumption that all dilutive warrant 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 be 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.
 
On September 8, 2009, the Company effected a 1-for-4 reverse split of its common stock.  On February 1, 2010, the Company effected a 2-for-1 forward split of its common stock. The weighted average number of shares for the purposes of calculating the earnings per share has been retroactively adjusted as if the reverse split and the forward split had taken effect as of the beginning of the earliest period presented.

5.             FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS AND FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS
 
ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement and Disclosures, defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. This topic also establishes a fair value hierarchy which requires classification based on observable and unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The fair value hierarchy distinguishes between assumptions based on market data (observable inputs) and an entity’s own assumptions (unobservable inputs). The hierarchy consists of three levels:
 
Level one — Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;
 
Level two — Inputs other than level one inputs that are either directly or indirectly observable; and
 
Level three — Unobservable inputs developed using estimates and assumptions, which are developed by the reporting entity and reflect those assumptions that a market participant would use.
 
Determining which category an asset or liability falls within the hierarchy requires significant judgment. The Company evaluates its hierarchy disclosures each quarter.
 
The Company had no assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2010.
 
The following tables present the Company’s assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis as of June 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009:

There were no assets or liabilities measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis as of June 30, 2010 or December 31, 2009.
 
The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, trade and other receivables, trade and other payables approximate their fair values due to the short maturities of these instruments.

5.           FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS AND FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS – CONTINUED

Derivative Instruments – Warrants

As of December 31, 2009, the Company’s only derivative instruments included warrants, the exercise price of which are denominated in a currency other than the Company’s functional currency, as follows:

1,857,024 warrants (“2009 Warrants”) exercisable at approximately $5.385 per share at any time during the period from April 19, 2010 through April 2012, that were issued in conjunction with a private placement of the Company’s common stock completed in October 2009.
 
Effective January 1, 2009, the Company adopted the guidance provided in FASB ASC 815-40-15-5 through 815-40-15-8 (formerly EITF 07-5, Determining Whether an Instrument (or Embedded Feature) is Indexed to an Entity’s Own Stock”). ASC 815-40-15-5 through 815-40-15-8 applies to any freestanding financial instruments or embedded features that have the characteristics of a derivative, as defined in ASC paragraph 815-10-15-83 (formerly SFAS No. 133, “Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities,”) and to any freestanding financial instruments that are potentially settled in an entity’s own common stock.

The 2009 warrants are not considered indexed to the Company’s own stock and were recorded at their fair value as derivative liabilities. In addition, they did not qualify for hedge accounting, and as such, all changes in the fair value of these warrants were recognized as other income or expenses. These warrants were reported as liability until such time as they were exercised or expire.

As of June 21, 2010, a total of 1,857,024 warrants were exercised at $5.385 per share, with total consideration of $10,000,074. Carlyle Asia Growth Partners IV, L.P and CAGP IV Co-Investment, L.P received 1,705,249 common shares and 151,775 common shares respectively as a result of their exercise of the warrants.

As of June 21, 2010, the Company estimates the fair value of warrants using the Black-Scholes option pricing model based on the following assumptions:

On June 21, 2010, all of the 2009 Warrants were exercised at $5.385 each in cash. The Company accounted for the exercise of these warrants as extinguishment of debts in accordance with ASC 815-10-40-1, “Derivatives and Hedges – De-recognition”. In accordance with ASC 470-50-40, “Debt – Modification and Extinguishments – De-recognition”, a gain of $1,629,465 in aggregate was recognized as the difference between the reacquisition price (determined based on the closing price of the common stock of $13.3 each issued to settle the warrant liabilities less the exercise price of $5.38 each received) and the fair value of the warrants of $8.7925 each at the date of exercise. The fair values of the 2009 Warrants on June 21, 2010 and December 31, 2009 were determined using the Black-Scholes option pricing model based on the following assumptions:

INCOME TAXES
 
The entities within the Company file separate tax returns in the respective tax jurisdictions that they operate.
 
The Company’s operating subsidiaries are subject to PRC enterprise income tax (“EIT”).  Before January 1, 2008, the PRC EIT rate was generally 33%. In March 2007, the PRC government enacted a new PRC Enterprise Income Tax Law, or the New EIT Law, and promulgated related regulation, Implementation Regulations for the PRC Enterprise Income Tax Law. The New EIT Law and Implementation Regulations became effective from January 1, 2008. The New EIT Law, among other things, imposes a unified income tax rate of 25% for both domestic and foreign invested enterprises registered in the PRC. The New EIT Law provides for a grandfathering and five-year transition period from its effective date for those enterprises which were established before the promulgation date of the New EIT Law and which were entitled to a preferential EIT treatment. Accordingly, Beijing Agritech and Anhui Agritech as wholly foreign-owned enterprises have continued to be entitled to tax exemption for the two years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008 and a 50% reduction on its EIT rate for the ensuing three years ended December 31, 2010 through 2012.

The provision for income taxes for three and six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009 consisted of the following:

As of June 30, 2010 and December 31, 2009, the Company did not have any significant temporary differences and carry forwards that may result in deferred tax.

The following table reconciles the theoretical tax expense calculated at the statutory tax rate to the Company’s effective tax expense for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 and 2009:

Non-taxable income for the three months ended June 30, 2010 consisted of the change in fair value of warrants of $13,307,462 and gain on extinguishment of warrant liability of $1,629,465.  Non-taxable income for the six months ended June 30, 2010 consisted of the change in fair value of warrants of $3,829,985 and gain on extinguishment of warrant liability of $1,629,465.

Non-deductible expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2010 primarily consisted of the share-based compensation of $812,025 and other operating expenses incurred in other tax jurisdiction where no tax benefit would be realized. Non-deductible expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2010 primarily consisted of the share-based compensation of $4,224,382 and other operating expenses incurred in other tax jurisdiction where no tax benefit would be realized.
 
Currently, the Company has considered share based compensation to be a non-deductible expense and has treated it as such in the computations of the estimated tax provisions.  The Company intends to pursue the deductibility of this expense with appropriate government officials and if successful negotiations ensue, these expenses could at least in part be deductible. Should this occur, future tax provisions would reflect the change in this treatment and the revised treatment would be applied to those expenses currently considered non-deductible.”

On January 12, 2010, the Company awarded an aggregate of 326,600 shares (as adjusted for the 2-for-1 forward stock split on February 1, 2010) common stock to certain directors and officers in consideration for services rendered to the Company, with varying vesting periods among different grantees in accordance with the terms of the agreements entered into by the Company and the grantees.
 
The fair value of the options granted during the six months ended June 30, 2010 has been estimated on the date of grant using the Black-Scholes option-pricing model that uses the weighted-average assumptions noted in the following table. Expected volatilities are based on historical volatility of the Companys stock, and reflect the assumption that the historical volatilities are indicative of future trends, which may not necessarily be the actual outcome. Expected term of each option award represents the period of time that options granted are expected to be outstanding and is estimated based on the historical exercise behavior of separate groups of employees or officers. The risk-free rate reflects the interest rate for United States Treasury Note with similar time-to-maturity to that of the options.

RELATED PARTY TRANSACTIONS
 
On January 6, 2005, the Company’s subsidiary Pacific Dragon entered into a license agreement with Mr. Yu Chang, our Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President. Under this license agreement, Mr. Chang granted an exclusive license to Pacific Dragon for the use of certain know-how in manufacturing organic liquid compound fertilizer on a royalty-free basis. The Company continues to refine the manufacturing know-how of the product at its expense. In order to translate such know-how to practicable applications in commercial production, the Company has continued to develop the manufacturing know-how of the product at its expense. The Company considers that the know-how would have had an insignificant value without the Company’s development initiatives. On December 3, 2005, Mr. Chang and Pacific Dragon entered into another license agreement pursuant to which the term of the license was extended to a permanent license. In accordance with the Securities Purchase Agreement, dated June 29, 2007, among the Company, Mr. Chang, and the investors named therein, an additional license agreement was entered into for this know-how between Mr. Chang and Pacific Dragon, confirming that the license has been extended until December 31, 2011.

ADJUSTMENTS TO PREVIOUSLY REPORTED THREE MONTHS ENDED MARCH 31, 2010 RESULTS
 
On January 12, 2010, the Company awarded an aggregate of 326,600 shares (as adjusted for the 2-for-1 forward stock split on February 1, 2010) consisting of 158,620 shares of restricted common stock and 167,980 shares of unrestricted common stock to certain directors and officers in consideration for services rendered, with varying vesting periods among different grantees in accordance with the terms of the agreements entered into by the Company and the grantees. The shares of common stock were valued by using the closing share price of $17.61 per share at approximately $5,751,426 and amortized over the vesting period.  The Company omitted to record the stock compensation expense of $3,257,410 for three months ended March 31, 2010.
 
Also, the Company incorrectly eliminated the inter-company sales and cost of sales for three months ended March 31, 2010 and as a result, the sales and cost of sales were understated and the profit on inter-company sales of $115,200 was incorrectly recorded as other operating income offset against operating expenses. The incorrect treatment of the inter company transactions had no impact on net income.

Our Business
 
We manufacture and sell organic liquid compound fertilizers, organic granular compound fertilizers and related agricultural products in the PRC through our direct and indirect subsidiaries: Anhui Agritech Development Co. Ltd.  (“Anhui Agritech”), Agritech Fertilizer Limited (“Beijing Agritech”), China Tailong Holdings Company Limited (“Tailong”), Pacific Dragon Fertilizer Co. Ltd. (“Pacific Dragon”), and Xinjiang Agritech Agriculture Resources Co., Ltd (“Xinjiang Agritech”).

Our annual liquid fertilizer production capacity in 2008 was approximately 13,000 metric tons of organic liquid compound fertilizers. We commenced sales of our organic granular compound fertilizers in the third quarter of 2008.  Until September 2009, our annual production capacity for granular fertilizers was approximately 150,000 metric tons, consisting of 100,000 metric tons in Anhui and 50,000 metric tons in Harbin.  In September 2009, we expanded our annual production capacity for granular fertilizers to approximately 200,000 metric tons by completing another 50,000 granular plant in Xinjiang. Our Xinjiang granular plant commenced its commercial production in the second quarter of 2010.
 
We believe that our brand reputation and ability to tailor our products to meet the requirements of various regions of the PRC affords us a competitive advantage. We purchase the majority of our raw materials from suppliers located in the PRC and use suppliers that are located in close proximity to our manufacturing facilities, which helps us to contain our cost of revenue.

The demand for our products has steadily increased. Our half year production capacity as of June 30, 2010 was approximately 5,809 metric tons of organic liquid compound fertilizers whereas our annual production capacity for granular fertilizers was approximately 73,881 metric tons.

We currently plan to build and operate approximately 10 and 45 branded large-scale distribution centers in central and eastern provinces in 2010 and 2011, respectively, to sell our organic fertilizers and third party sourced products, including seeds, pesticides, and other agricultural products to franchised retail stores, and intend to expand into southern and western provinces starting from 2012. We anticipate that each distribution center will cost approximately $1 million to build and can supply 80 to 100 franchised retail stores in its geographic area. Because we do not expect that the distribution centers will sell products on a retail basis, we intend to initially engage our current distributors to become the franchisees of such retail stores.  We will not own the retail stores and will not receive any franchise fees from the stores, but we will provide product sourcing, training, expertise and logistic services to our franchisees  In return, the retail stores will be required to commit to sell our organic fertilizers, together with third party products sourced by us.  We believe that our planned distribution centers and franchised retail stores in the PRC could enable us to introduce farmers, especially individual farmers, to our products, educate them about the benefits of organic fertilizer over chemical fertilizer, and teach them how to properly use our products in a more cost effective manner. We believe that these franchised stores could also introduce our products to a vast network of farmers who otherwise operate outside of our existing distribution network and outside of the reach of traditional advertising media. Our anticipated schedule of building and operating these branded distribution centers depends upon a variety of factors, many of which are outside of our control. Accordingly, our current build-out schedule, may change.

Net Revenue.
 
Our net revenue rose to $34.3 million for the three-months period ended June 30, 2010, an increase of approximately $13.3 million, or 63% as compared to $21 million for the same period in 2009. The increase in our net revenues was mainly attributable to the increase in sales in both organic liquid fertilizer and organic granular compound fertilizer. Sales of organic liquid fertilizer recorded $20 million, whereas organic granular compound fertilizer attributed $14.3 million for the three-months period ended June 30, 2010 which was an increased of 43% and 103% respectively as compared to last year same period, which recorded $14 million and $7 million sales of organic liquid fertilizer and organic granular compound fertilizer respectively. The increase in sales was mainly due to the introduction of a new product, organic granular compound fertilizer in the second quarter of 2009.  The Company received good market response since the product was launched, especially the first half 2010. Higher market demand on organic granular compound in first half year due to organic granular compound fertilizer used as base manure before seeding, whereas organic liquid fertilizer used when the plantation to grow, normally the demand on organic liquid fertilizer will increase from May onwards. The introduction of organic granular compound fertilizer solved the seasonality problem which normally occurs in the first half of year during the traditionally slow period for organic liquid fertilizer.

 
19

 
 
The increase in sales of our traditional organic liquid compound fertilizer products was mainly due to the expansion of our customer base to newly established markets in the central and southern regions of China.

Cost of Revenue.
 
Our cost of revenue for the three-month period ended June 30, 2010 increased by $10.4 million, or 86%, as compared to the same period in 2009. Cost of goods sold reported $22.4 million whereas the same period in 2009 recorded $12 million. Our cost of revenue primarily consists of the cost of our raw materials, direct labor and manufacturing overhead expenses. Our increase in cost of revenue is generally consistent with the increase in sales especially for granular fertilizer which contributed 42% of total sales and with a higher cost of materials used as compared to organic liquid fertilizer.
 
Gross Profit.
 
Our gross profit for three-month period ended June 30, 2010 recorded $11.9 million, increased by $2.9 million or 33%, as compared to the same period in 2009 which was reported $9 million. Overall gross profit margin for the three-month period ended June 30, 2010 was 34.7%, as compared to 42.7% for the same period in 2009. The decrease in overall gross profit margin was mainly due to the increase in organic granular compound fertilizer‘s sales which granular fertilizer sales incurred higher material costs and recorded a lower profit margin than liquid fertilizer.
 
Our organic granular compound fertilizer products recorded a gross profit margin of 20.3% for three-month period ended June 30, 2010, there was no significant change as compared with same period 2009, which recorded as 21.7%. There was slight decrease of gross profit margin organic liquid fertilizer products, which recorded a gross profit margin of 45% for the three-month period ended June 30, 2010, as compared with 53.3% for the same period in 2009. The decrease in gross profit margin was mainly due to the company has improved its formula of organic liquid fertilizer.  More raw materials used in new formula to enhance the quality of product, thus, the material costs increase accordingly.

Selling Expenses.

Our selling expenses consist primarily of advertising and promotion expenses, freight charges salaries and travelling expenses.  Our selling expenses were $1.3 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2010 as compared to $0.6 million for the same period in 2009, an increase of $0.7 million. The increase in selling expenses was mainly due to significant increase in promotion expenses which were reported at $0.4 million, an increase of $0.37 million compared to the three-month period ended June 2009. This increase is in line with the increase in sales volume, and handling charges accordingly. There was slight increase in selling expenses as a percentage to net revenue, from approximately 3% for the three months ended June 30, 2009 to approximately 4% for three months ended June 30, 2010.

General and Administrative Expenses.

Our general and administrative expenses were $2.6 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2010, an increased of $1.7 million, representing a 200% increase as compared to $0.87 million for the same period in 2009. General and administrative expenses consist primarily of staff costs, such as salaries and bonus, stock-based compensation expenses for management, professional fees, audit fees, rental and others. The increase in administrative expenses was primarily due to non-cash charges $0.81 million which related to shares option and stock granted to our director and management. Besides, franchise tax, insurance expenses, research and development costs  and audit fees increased by $0.18 million, $0.12 million, $0.26 million, $0.17 million, and $ 0.19 million respectively.

Income from Operations.
 
Income from operations was $8.0 million for the three months period ended June 30, 2010 and increased by $0.5 million or 7%, as compared to $7.5 million for the same period in 2009.  The increase was primarily because of the increase in gross profit by $2.9 million but offset by the increase in selling and general and administrative expenses by $0.7 million and $1.7 million respectively.

Other Income

Other income consists of the change in fair value of warrant classified as derivatives, recognition of gain on extinguishment of warrants classified as derivatives, interest income and exchange gain/loss. The increase in other income was mainly attributable to a non-cash charge of $13.3 million resulting from the change in the fair value of the warrants classified as derivative instruments and recognition of gain on extinguishment of warrants classified as derivatives of $1.6 million.

Income tax.
 
The Company incurred income tax expense of $1.5 million, representing an effective tax rate of 6.6%, for the three-month period ended March 31, 2010, as compared to 21.5% for the same period in 2009. The decrease in the effective tax rate was primarily caused by the non-taxable income from the gain on extinguishment of warrant liability of $1.6 million and gain on changes in fair value of warrants of $13.3 million, which in aggregate had a tax effect of 16.6% on the Company’s income before tax.
 
Net Income

We recorded a net income attributable to common shareholders of $21 million for the three-month period ended June 30, 2010 as compared to a net income of $5.9 million for the same period in 2009, increase of $15.6 million, or 266%. If we excluded the non-cash gain resulting from the change in the fair value of the warrants of $13.3 million, the gain on extinguishment of warrants classified as derivatives $1.6 million, and share based compensation expenses $1.3 million, we would have recorded a net income of $7.4 million, an effective increase of $1.4 million, or 24.4% growth, as compared to the same period in 2009.

Overall gross profit margin for the six-month period ended June 30, 2010 was 34%, where it was recorded as 43% for the same period in 2009. The slight decrease was due to increase in sales of organic granular compound fertilizer which has a lower profit margin earned.
 
 Our organic granular compound fertilizer products recorded a gross profit margin of 19.6% for the six-month period ended June 30, 2010, whereas our traditional organic liquid fertilizer products recorded a gross profit margin of 46.4%. Organic granular compound fertilizer products and organic liquid fertilizer products recorded 21.2% and 51% of gross profit margin respectively for the same period 2009.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2010, we had cash and cash equivalents of $51.7 million, an increase of $31.4 million, from $20.3 million as at December 31, 2009, which is principally attributable to the cash proceeds from public offering transaction in May, 2010 and the exercise of the warrants in June 2010. Our current assets totaled $140.3 million as of June 30, 2010, while our current liabilities totaled $6.4 million, which results in a current ratio of 20 times.

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) requires our management to make assumptions, estimates and judgments that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements, including the notes thereto, and related disclosures of commitments and contingencies, if any. We consider our critical accounting policies to be those that require the most significant judgments and estimates in the preparation of financial statements, including the following:
 
 
·
Accounts Receivable.  Our policy is to maintain reserves for potential credit losses on accounts receivable. Management reviews the composition of accounts receivable and analyzes historical bad debts, customer concentrations, customer credit worthiness, current economic trends and changes in customer payment patterns to evaluate the adequacy of these reserves.

·
Inventories.  Inventories are valued at the lower of cost (determined on a weighted average basis) or net market value. Our management compares the cost of inventories with the net realizable value and an allowance is made for inventories with the net realizable value and an allowance is made for inventories with net realizable value, if lower than the cost.
 
 
·
Impairment.  We apply the provisions of ASC 360-10-35, “Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets Subsections” (formerly Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets’), issued by the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”).  ASC Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets Subsections require that long-lived assets be reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable through the estimated undiscounted cash flows expected to result from the use and eventual disposition of the assets. Whenever any such impairment exists, an impairment loss will be recognized for the amount by which the carrying value exceeds the fair value.
 
 
·
Fixed Assets. We test long-lived assets, including property, plant and equipment and intangible assets subject to periodic amortization, for recoverability at least annually or more frequently upon the occurrence of an event or when circumstances indicate that the net carrying amount is greater than its fair value. Assets are grouped and evaluated at the lowest level for their identifiable cash flows that are largely independent of the cash flows of other groups of assets. We consider historical performance and future estimate results in our evaluation of potential impairment and then compare the carrying amount of the asset to the future estimated cash flows expected to result from the use of the asset. If the carrying amount of the asset exceeds estimated expected undiscounted future cash flows, we measure the amount of impairment by comparing the carrying amount of the asset to its fair value. The estimation of fair value is generally measured by discounting expected future cash flows at the rate we utilize to evaluate potential investments. We estimate fair value based on the information available in making whatever estimates, judgments and projections are considered necessary.
 
 
·
Revenue Recognition.  Sales revenue is recognized at the date of shipment from the Company’s facilities to customers when a formal arrangement exists, the price is fixed or determinable, the delivery is completed, no other significant obligations of our company exist and collectability is reasonably assured. Payments received before all of the relevant criteria for revenue recognition are satisfied are recorded as unearned revenue. Our revenue consists of invoiced value of goods, net of a value-added tax (“VAT”). No product return or sales discount allowance is made as products delivered and accepted by customers are normally not returnable and sales discounts are normally not granted after products are delivered.
 
 
·
Foreign currency translation. We use U.S. dollars for financial reporting purposes. Our subsidiaries maintain their books and records in their functional currency, RMB, being the primary currency of the PRC, the economic environment in which their operations are conducted. In general, for consolidation purposes, we translate our subsidiaries’ assets and liabilities into U.S. dollars using the applicable exchange rates prevailing at the balance sheet date, and the statement of income is translated at average exchange rates during the reporting period. Gain or loss on foreign currency transactions are reflected on the income statement. Gain or loss on financial statement translation from foreign currency are recorded as a separate component in the equity section of the balance sheet, as component of comprehensive income. The functional currency of our Company is RMB. Until July 21, 2005, RMB had been pegged to the U.S. dollar at the rate of RMB 8.28:$1.00. On July 21, 2005, the PRC government reformed the exchange rate system into a managed floating exchange rate system based on market supply and demand with reference to a basket of currencies. In addition, the exchange rate of RMB to U.S. dollars was adjusted to RMB 8.11:$1.00 as of July 21, 2005. The People’s Bank of China announces the closing price of a foreign currency such as U.S. dollar traded against RMB in the inter-bank foreign exchange market after the closing of the market on each working day, which will become the unified exchange rate for the trading against RMB on the following working day. The daily trading price of U.S. dollars against RMB in the inter-bank foreign exchange market is allowed to float within a band of 0.3% around the unified exchange rate published by the People’s Bank of China. This quotation of exchange rates does not imply free convertibility of RMB to other foreign currencies. All foreign exchange transactions continue to take place either through the People’s Bank of China or other banks authorized to buy and sell foreign currencies at the exchange rates quoted by the People’s Bank of China. Approval of foreign currency payments by the People’s Bank of China or other institutions require submitting a payment application form together with invoices, shipping documents and signed contracts.

·
Stock-based Compensation.  The Company accounts for stock-based compensation arrangements in accordance with ASC 718-10 (formerly SFAS No. 123R “Share-Based Payment”) and measures the cost of services received as consideration for equity instruments issued or liabilities incurred in share-based compensation transactions based on the grant-date fair value of the equity instruments issued or the liabilities settled, net of any amount that an employee pays for that instrument when it is granted. The Company recognizes compensation cost for an award with only service conditions that has a graded vesting schedule on a straight-line basis over the requisite service period for the entire award, provided that the compensation cost recognized for any date must at least equal the portion of the grant-date value of the award that is vested at that date. No compensation cost is recognized for awards that do not vest (i.e. awards for which the requisite service is not rendered). If an award is cancelled, any previously unrecognized compensation cost is recognized immediately at the cancellation date. However, if the cancellation is accompanied by the concurrent grant of a replacement award, an incremental compensation cost is recognized and measured as the excess of the fair value of the replacement award over the fair value of the cancelled award at the cancellation date.

ITEM 3      Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk

We do not use derivative instruments for any speculative, trading or hedging purposes. As of June 30, 2010, we did not have any interest bearing investment or borrowings. Because most of our transactions including sales and purchases are denominated and settled in RMB, any exchange rate change of RMB against U.S. dollar could have an effect on our financial results which are reported in U.S. dollars. If the RMB were to depreciate against the U.S. dollar, amounts reported in U.S. dollars would correspondingly be reduced. If the RMB were to appreciate against the U.S. dollar, amounts reported in U.S. dollars would correspondingly be increased.
 
ITEM 4 Controls and Procedures
 
Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, we conducted an evaluation of the effectiveness, as of June 30, 2010, of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as such term is defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e). Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer have concluded that, as of June 30, 2010, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective to ensure that information required to be disclosed by us in our Exchange Act reports was recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information was accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.
 
Changes in Internal Controls over Financial Reporting.
 
During the course of the evaluation of the disclosure controls and procedures as of June 30, 2010 and in connection with the preparation of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended June 30, 2010, management discovered it was necessary to adjust the previously reported results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010 as a result of two accounting errors, which were the failure by the Company to account for 326,600 shares of common stock awarded to directors and officers for services during the quarter ended March 31, 2010 and incorrectly accounting for certain intercompany transactions for the quarter ended March 31, 2010.
 
As a result of these errors, management subsequently concluded that there was a material weakness in its disclosure controls and procedures and internal controls over financial reporting as of March 31, 2010. Management has identified this material weakness to be inadequate supervision and review of the financial reporting process relating to the preparation of US GAAP based financial statements. As a result, management has determined it is necessary to make changes in its internal controls over financial reporting, which would specifically entail providing further training to the Company’s finance team to improve their reporting skill levels with respect US GAAP technical issues. Additionally, management will enhance controls over the review of  its US GAAP prepared financial statements prior to their release giving added emphasis  to the identification and accounting  of unusual  transactions.
 
Due to the material weakness described above, management has determined to provide further training to the Company’s finance team and other relevant personnel of the Company in respect of identification of U.S. GAAP accounting guidance applicable to the Company’s financial statements in order to address the material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting.
