NOTE 1 - ORGANIZATION AND PRINCIPAL ACTIVITIES

When we use the terms ”we,” ”us,” ”our” and “the Company,” we mean Kandi Technologies Group, Inc., a Delaware corporation. The Company was incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on March 31, 2004. On August 13, 2007, the Company changed its name from Stone Mountain Resources, Inc. to Kandi Technologies, Corp. On December 21, 2012, the Company changed its name to Kandi Technologies Group, Inc. Headquartered in the Jinhua city, Zhejiang Province, China, we are one of China’s leading producers and manufacturers of electrical vehicles, all-terrain vehicles, go-karts and a variety of other specialty vehicles, including all-terrain vehicles and specialized utility vehicles for the PRC and global markets.

The Company conducts its primary business operations through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Zhejiang Kandi Vehicles Co., Ltd. (“Kandi Vehicles”).

In December 2010, in connection with forming the first Chinese electric vehicle battery replacement service provider, Jinhua Three Parties New Energy Vehicles Service Co., ltd. (“Jinhua Service”) was formed as a joint venture, by and among our wholly owned subsidiary, Kandi Vehicles, the State Grid Power Corporation and Tianneng Power International. The Company, indirectly through Kandi Vehicles, has a 30% ownership interest in Jinhua Service.

In January 2011, pursuant to relevant agreements, Kandi Vehicles is entitled to 100% of the economic benefits, voting rights and residual interests (100% profits and loss absorption rate) of Kandi New Energy.

In April 2012, pursuant to a Share Exchange Agreement, the Company completed an acquisition of Yongkang Scrou Electric Co. (“Yongkang Scrou”), which is a manufacturer mainly engaged in manufacturing of air-conditioning systems and controllers of electric vehicles and auto generators. Yongkang Scrou became a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

In March 2013, Kandi Vehicles entered into the Joint Venture Agreement (the “JV Agreement”) of Establishment of Zhejiang Kandi Electric Vehicles Co., Ltd. with Shanghai Maple Guorun Automobile Co., Ltd., a 99% owned subsidiary of Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd. (the “Geely”), an entity listed on the Hong Kong Exchanges and Clearing Limited. On April 19, 2013, Zhejiang Kandi Electric Vehicles Co., Ltd.

Each party has a 50% ownership interest in the JV Company. The business scope of JV Company is to develop, manufacture and sell EVs and related auto parts.

In March 2013, Kandi Vehicles formed Kandi Electric Vehicles (Changxing) Co., Ltd. (“Kandi Changxing”) in the Changxing (National) Economic and Technological Development Zone. Kandi Changxing specializes in the production of electrical vehicles (“EVs). As reported on a Form 8-K filed by the Company on November 4, 2013, Kandi Vehicles, pursuant to the terms and conditions of the JV Agreement, sold and transferred its entire ownership interest in Kandi Changxing to the JV Company.

NOTE 2 – LIQUIDITY

As of September 30, 2013, the Company’s working capital deficit was ($24,027,852), an improvement from a working capital deficit ($34,705,168) as of June 30, 2013. This improvement mainly attributable to the payment received from JV Company in connection with transferring ownership of Kandi Changxing to JV Company, and the cash received from investors in the third quarter of 2013.

As of September 30, 2013, the Company had credit lines from commercial banks of $54,946,841, of which $33,488,312 was used as of September 30, 2013.

Historically, the Company has financed itself through short-term commercial bank loans obtained from banks. The term of these loans are typically for one year; upon our payment of all outstanding principal and interest in a respective loan, the banks have typically rolled over such loans for an additional one-year term, subject to interest rate adjustments to reflect prevailing market rates. The Company believes these lending arrangements have not changed and that short-term bank loans will continue to be available on customary terms and conditions.

The Company believes that its cash flows generated internally may not be sufficient to support growth of future operations and repay short term bank loans for the next twelve months (if required). However, the Company believes that its access to existing financing sources, as well as its established reputation with banks, will enable it to meet its obligations and fund its ongoing operations.

On June 26, 2013, the Company entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement with certain institutional investors (the "Investors") that closed on July 1, 2013 pursuant to which the Company sold to the Investors, in a registered direct offering, an aggregate of 4,376,036 shares of our common stock at a negotiated purchase price of $6.03 per share, for aggregate gross proceeds of approximately $ 26,387,500, before deducting fees to the placement agent and other estimated offering expenses payable by the Company. As part of the transaction, the Investors also received Series A warrants for the purchase of up to 1,750,415 shares of our Common Stock at an exercise price of $7.24 per share and an option to make an additional investment in the form of Series B warrants and Series C warrants: Series B warrants to purchase a maximum aggregate of 728,936 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $7.24 per share and the Series C warrants to purchase a maximum aggregate of 291,574 shares of our common stock at an exercise price of $8.69.

NOTE 5 – USE OF ESTIMATES

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States 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 consolidated financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Management makes these estimates using the best information available at the time the estimates are made; however actual results when ultimately realized could differ from those estimates.

NOTE 6 - SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

(a) Economic and Political Risks

The Company’s operations are conducted in the PRC. Accordingly, the Company’s business, financial condition and results of operations may be influenced by the political, economic and legal environments in the PRC, and by the general state of the PRC economy.

Our operations are conducted mainly in the PRC. As such, our earnings are subject to movements in foreign currency exchange rates when transactions are denominated in Renminbi (“RMB”), which is our functional currency. Accordingly, our operation results are affected by changes in the exchange rate between the U.S. dollar and those currencies.

The Company’s operations in the PRC are subject to special considerations and significant risks not typically associated with companies in North America and Western Europe. These include risks associated with, among others, the political, economic and legal environment and foreign currency exchange. The Company’s performance may be adversely affected by changes in the political and social conditions in the PRC, and by changes in governmental policies with respect to laws and regulations, anti-inflationary measures, currency conversion, remittances abroad, and rates and methods of taxation, among other things.

NOTE 6 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

(b) Fair Value of Financial Instruments

ASC 820 establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value. The hierarchy prioritizes the inputs into three levels based on the extent to which inputs used in measuring fair value are observable in the market.

These tiers include:

Level 1—defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets;

Level 2—defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable; and

Level 3—defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions.

As of September 30, 2013, our assets, measured at fair value, on a recurring basis, subject to the disclosure requirements of ASC 820, were as follows:

    Fair Value Measurements at Reporting Date Using Quoted Prices in  
                      Significant  
    Carrying value as     Active Markets for     Significant Other     Unobservable  
    of September 30,     Identical Assets     Observable Inputs     Inputs  
    2013     (Level 1)   (Level 2)   (Level 3)
Cash and cash equivalents $  12,448,344   $  12,448,344     -     -  
Restricted cash   11,384,036     11,384,036     -     -  
Warrants   14,852,005     -     -     14,852,005  

Cash and cash equivalents consist primarily of highly rated money market funds at a variety of well-known institutions with original maturities of three months or less. Restricted cash represents time deposits on account, some of which is used to secure short-term bank loans and notes payable. The original cost of these assets approximates fair value due to their short term maturity.

Warrants which are accounted as liabilities, are treated as derivative instruments, which will be measured at each reporting date for their fair value using Level 3 inputs. Also see Note 6 section (s).

(c) Cash and Cash Equivalents

The Company considers highly liquid investments purchased with original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents.

Restricted cash, as of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, represents time deposits on account, some of which are used to secure short-term bank loans and notes payable. As of September 30, 2013, our restricted cash was as follows:

Purpose   Amount  
Used to secure note payable (also see Note 15) $  11,381,149  
Used to secure short-term bank loans (also see Note 14)   -  
Pure time deposits   2,887  
Total   11,384,036

NOTE 6 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

(d) Inventories

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or net realizable value (market value). The cost of raw materials is determined on a weighted average basis. The cost of finished goods is also determined on a weighted average basis and includes direct materials, direct labor and an appropriate proportion of overhead.

Net realizable value is based on estimated selling prices, less any further costs expected to be incurred and related completion and selling expenses.

(e) Accounts Receivable

Accounts receivable are recognized and carried at net realizable value. An allowance for doubtful accounts is recorded in periods where we determine a loss is probable, based on our assessment of specific factors such as troubled collection, historical experience, accounts aging, ongoing business relation and other factors. Accounts are written off after an exhaustive collection effort. If accounts receivable are to be provided for, or written off, they are recognized in the consolidated statement of operations within operating expenses line item. As of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, the Company recorded no allowance for doubtful accounts. This determination was made per our management's judgment, which was based on their best knowledge.

As of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, the longest credit term used, in connection with certain selected customers, was 90 days.

(f) Note receivable

Notes receivable represents short-term loans to third parties with the maximum term of one year. Interest income is recognized, on an accrual basis, in accordance with each agreement between a borrower and the Company. If notes receivable are provided for, or written off, such notes are recognized in the relevant year that the loan default is probable (management is reasonably certain and losses can be reasonably estimated). The Company recognizes income if the written-off loan is recovered at a future date. In case of foreclosure procedures or legal actions, the Company provides accrual for related foreclosure and litigation expenses.

(g) Prepayments

Prepayments represent cash paid in advance to suppliers. As of September 30, 2013, prepayments included cash paid advances to raw material and equipments suppliers, and prepaid expenses, such as water and electricity fees.

(h) Plant and Equipment

Plant and equipment are carried at cost less accumulated depreciation. Depreciation is provided over their estimated useful lives, using the straight-line method. Leasehold improvements are amortized over the life of the asset or the term of the lease, whichever is shorter. Estimated useful lives are as follows:

Buildings 30 years
Machinery and equipment 10 years
Office equipment 5 years
Motor vehicles 5 years
Molds 5 years

The cost and related accumulated depreciation of assets sold or otherwise retired are eliminated from the accounts and any gain or loss is included in the statement of income. The cost of maintenance and repairs is charged to expense as incurred, whereas significant renewals and betterments are capitalized.

NOTE 6 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

(i) Construction in Progress

Construction in progress represents the direct costs of construction, the acquisition cost of buildings, or machinery and design fees. Capitalization of these costs ceases, and the construction in progress is transferred to plant and equipment, when substantially all the activities necessary to prepare the assets for their intended use are completed. No depreciation is provided until the assets are completed and ready for their intended use.

(j) Land Use Rights

According Chinese laws, land in the PRC is owned by the government and land ownership rights cannot be sold to an individual or to a private company. However, the government grants the user a “land use right” to use the land. The land use rights granted to the Company are being amortized using the straight-line method over the lease term of fifty years.

(k) Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

The Company periodically evaluates the carrying value of long-lived assets to be held and used, including intangible assets subject to amortization, when events and circumstances warrant such a review, pursuant to the guidelines established in Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 144 (now known as "ASC 360"). The carrying value of a long-lived asset is considered impaired when the anticipated undiscounted cash flow from such asset is separately identifiable and is less than its carrying value. In that event, a loss is recognized based on the amount by which the carrying value exceeds the fair market value of the long-lived asset. Fair market value is determined primarily using the anticipated cash flows discounted at a rate commensurate with the risk involved. Losses on long-lived assets to be disposed of are determined in a similar manner, except that fair market values are reduced for the cost to dispose.

During the reporting period, no impairment loss was recognized.

(l) Revenue Recognition

Revenue represents the invoiced value of goods sold. Revenue is recognized when we ship the goods to our customers. Revenue is recognized when all of the following criteria are met:

  • Persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists;
  • Delivery has occurred or services have been rendered;
  • The seller’s price to the buyer is fixed or determinable; and
  • Collectability is reasonably assured.

(m) Research and Development

Expenditures relating to the development of new products and processes, including significant improvement to existing products, are expensed as incurred. Research and development expenses were $1,863,020 and $2,006,269 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

(n) Government Grant

Grants received from the PRC Government for assisting in the Company’s technical research and development efforts are recognized when the proceeds are received or collectible.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, $60,884 and $45,942, respectively, was received from the PRC government.

NOTE 6 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

(o) Income Taxes

The Company accounts for income tax using an asset and liability approach, which allows for the recognition of deferred tax benefits in future years. Under the asset and liability approach, deferred taxes are provided for the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes. The accounting for deferred tax calculation represents the management’s best estimate on the most likely future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in our financial statements or tax returns and related future anticipation. A valuation allowance is provided for deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not these items will either expire before the Company is able to realize their benefits, or that future realization is uncertain.

(p) Foreign Currency Translation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements are presented in United States dollars. The functional currency of the Company is the Renminbi (RMB). Capital accounts of the consolidated financial statements are translated into United States dollars from RMB at their historical exchange rates when the capital transactions occurred.

Assets and liabilities are translated at the exchange rates as of balance sheet date. Income and expenditures are translated at the average exchange rate of the year, which was obtained from website: http://www.oanda.com

  September 30, December 31, September 30,
  2013 2012 2012
Period end RMB : USD exchange rate 6.1514 6.3161 6.3340
Average RMB : USD exchange rate 6.2215 6.3198 6.3275

(q) Comprehensive Income

Comprehensive income is defined to include all changes in equity except those resulting from investments by owners and distributions to owners. Among other disclosures, all items that are required to be recognized under current accounting standards as components of comprehensive income are required to be reported in a financial statement that is presented with the same prominence as other financial statements. Comprehensive income includes net income and the foreign currency translation changes.

(r) Stock Option Cost

The Company’s stock option cost is recorded in accordance with ASC 718 and ASC 505.

The fair value of stock options is estimated using the Black-Scholes-Merton model. The Company’s expected volatility assumption is based on the historical volatility of the Company’s stock. The expected life assumption is primarily based on the expiration date of the option. The risk-free interest rate for the expected term of the option is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant.

Stock option expense recognized is based on awards expected to vest, and there were no estimated forfeitures. ASC standards requires forfeitures to be estimated at the time of grant and revised in subsequent periods, if necessary, if actual forfeitures differ from those estimates.

The stock based compensation expense for the period ended September 30, 2013 was $0. See Note 18.

NOTE 6 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (CONTINUED)

(s) Warrant Cost

The Company’s warrant costs are recorded in liabilities and equities respectively in accordance with ASC 480, ASC 505 and ASC 815.

The fair value of a warrant, which is classified as a liability, is estimated using the Black-Scholes-Merton model and the lattice valuation model. The Company’s expected volatility assumption is based on the historical volatility of the Company’s stock. The expected life assumption is primarily based on the expiration date of the warrant. The risk-free interest rate for the expected term of the warrant is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of measurement. The warrants, which are freestanding derivatives and are classified as liabilities on the balance sheet, will be measured at fair value on each reporting date, with decreases in fair value recognized in earnings and increases in fair values were recognized in expenses.

The Company determined that the fair value of equity based warrants, which are not considered derivatives under ASC 815, is estimated using the Black-Scholes-Merton model. The Company’s expected volatility assumption is based on the historical volatility of the Company’s stock. The expected life assumption is primarily based on the expiration date of the warrant. The risk-free interest rate for the expected term of the option is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant.

(t) Goodwill

We allocate goodwill to reporting units based on the reporting unit expected to benefit from the business combination. We evaluate our reporting units on an annual basis and, if necessary, reassign goodwill using a relative fair value allocation approach. Goodwill is tested for impairment at the reporting unit level on an annual basis and between annual tests if an event occurs or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of a reporting unit below its carrying value. These events or circumstances could include a significant change in the business climate, legal factors, operating performance indicators, competition, or sale or disposition of a significant portion of a reporting unit.

Application of the goodwill impairment test requires judgment, including the identification of reporting units, assignment of assets and liabilities to reporting units, assignment of goodwill to reporting units, and determination of the fair value of each reporting unit. We first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is more likely than not that goodwill is impaired. If the more likely than not threshold is met, we perform a quantitative impairment test. At September 30, 2013, the Company determined that goodwill was not impaired.

(u) Intangible assets

Intangible assets consist of tradename and customer relations associated with the purchase price allocation of Yongkang Scrou Electric Co.. Such assets are being amortized over their estimated useful lives of 9.7 years. Intangible assets are amortized as of September 30, 2013.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In January 2013, FASB has issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2013-01, Balance Sheet (Topic 210): Clarifying the Scope of Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities. This ASU clarifies that ordinary trade receivables and receivables are not in the scope of ASU No. 2011-11, Balance Sheet (Topic 210): Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities. Specifically, ASU 2011-11 applies only to derivatives, repurchase agreements and reverse purchase agreements, and securities borrowing and securities lending transactions that are either offset in accordance with specific criteria contained in the FASB Accounting Standards Codification™ (Codification) or subject to a master netting arrangement or similar agreement. The FASB undertook this clarification project in response to concerns expressed by U.S. stakeholders about the standard’s broad definition of financial instruments. After the standard was finalized, companies realized that many contracts have standard commercial provisions that would equate to a master netting arrangement, significantly increasing the cost of compliance at minimal value to financial statement users. An entity is required to apply the amendments in ASU 2013-01 for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2013, and interim periods within those annual periods. An entity should provide the required disclosures retrospectively for all comparative periods presented. The adoption of 2013-01 did not have a material effect on our operating results or financial position.

In February 2013, FASB has issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2013-02, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income. This ASU improves the transparency of reporting these reclassifications. Other comprehensive income includes gains and losses that are initially excluded from net income for an accounting period. Those gains and losses are later reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income into net income. The amendments in this ASU do not change the current requirements for reporting net income or other comprehensive income in financial statements. All of the information that this ASU requires is presently required under U.S. GAAP to be disclosed elsewhere in the financial statements.

The new amendments will require an organization to:

Present (either on the face of the statement where net income is presented or in the notes) the effects on the line items of net income of significant amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income - but only if the item reclassified is required under U.S. GAAP to be reclassified to net income in its entirety in the same reporting period.

Cross-reference to other disclosures currently required under U.S. GAAP for other reclassification items (that are not required under U.S. GAAP) to be reclassified directly to net income in their entirety in the same reporting period. This would be the case when a portion of the amount reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income is initially transferred to a balance sheet account (e.g., inventory for pension-related amounts) instead of directly to income or expense.

The amendments apply to all public and private companies that report items of other comprehensive income. Public companies are required to comply with these amendments for all reporting periods (interim and annual). A private company is required to meet the reporting requirements of the amended paragraphs about the roll forward of accumulated other comprehensive income for both interim and annual reporting periods. However, private companies are only required to provide the information about the effect of reclassifications on line items of net income for annual reporting periods, not for interim reporting periods. The amendments are effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2012, for public companies and are effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2013, for private companies. The adoption of 2013-02 did not have a material effect on our operating results or financial position.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements (Continued)

In February 2013, FASB has issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2013-04, Liabilities (Topic 405): Obligations Resulting from Joint and Several Liability Arrangements for Which the Total Amount of the Obligation Is Fixed at the Reporting Date. This ASU provides guidance for the recognition, measurement, and disclosure of obligations resulting from joint and several liability arrangements for which the total amount of the obligation within the scope of this ASU is fixed at the reporting date, except for obligations addressed within existing guidance in U.S. GAAP. The guidance requires an entity to measure those obligations as the sum of the amount the reporting entity agreed to pay on the basis of its arrangement among its co-obligors and any additional amount the reporting entity expects to pay on behalf of its co-obligors. The guidance in this ASU also requires an entity to disclose the nature and amount of the obligation as well as other information about those obligations. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2013. For nonpublic entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2014, and interim periods and annual periods thereafter. The amendments in this ASU should be applied retrospectively to all prior periods presented for those obligations resulting from joint and several liability arrangements within the ASU’s scope that exist at the beginning of an entity’s fiscal year of adoption. An entity may elect to use hindsight for the comparative periods (if it changed its accounting as a result of adopting the amendments in this ASU) and should disclose that fact. Early adoption is permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of 2013-04 to have a material effect on its operating results or financial position.

In March 2013, FASB has issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2013-05, Foreign Currency Matters (Topic 830). This ASU resolve the diversity in practice about whether Subtopic 810-10, Consolidation—Overall, or Subtopic 830-30, Foreign Currency Matters—Translation of Financial Statements, applies to the release of the cumulative translation adjustment into net income when a parent either sells a part or all of its investment in a foreign entity or no longer holds a controlling financial interest in a subsidiary or group of assets that is a nonprofit activity or a business (other than a sale of in substance real estate or conveyance of oil and gas mineral rights)within a foreign entity. In addition, the amendments in this Update resolve the diversity in practice for the treatment of business combinations achieved in stages (sometimes also referred to as step acquisitions) involving a foreign entity. This ASU is the final version of Proposed Accounting Standards Update EITF11Ar—Foreign Currency Matters (Topic 830), which has been deleted. The amendments in this Update are effective prospectively for fiscal years (and interim reporting periods within those years) beginning after December 15, 2013. For nonpublic entities the amendments in this Update are effective prospectively for the first annual period beginning after December 15, 2014, and interim and annual periods thereafter. The amendments should be applied prospectively to derecognition events occurring after the effective date. Prior periods should not be adjusted. Early adoption is permitted. If an entity elects to early adopt the amendments, it should apply them as of the beginning of the entity’s fiscal year of adoption. The Company does not expect the adoption of 2013-05 to have a material effect on its operating results or financial position.

In July 2013, The FASB has issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2013-10, Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Inclusion of the Fed Funds Effective Swap Rate (or Overnight Index Swap Rate) as a Benchmark Interest Rate for Hedge Accounting Purposes (a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force). The amendments in this ASU permit the Fed Funds Effective Swap Rate (OIS) to be used as a U.S. benchmark interest rate for hedge accounting purposes, in addition to UST and LIBOR. The amendments also remove the restriction on using different benchmark rates for similar hedges. Before the amendments in this ASU, only UST and, for practical reasons, the LIBOR swap rate, were considered benchmark interest rates. Including the Fed Funds Effective Swap Rate (OIS) as an acceptable U.S. benchmark interest rate in addition to UST and LIBOR will provide risk managers with a more comprehensive spectrum of interest rate resets to utilize as the designated benchmark interest rate risk component under the hedge accounting guidance. The amendments apply to all entities that elect to apply hedge accounting of the benchmark interest rate. The amendments are effective prospectively for qualifying new or redesignated hedging relationships entered into on or after July 17, 2013. To date, the adoption of 2013-10 has not had a material effect on our operating results or financial position, and the Company does not expect the adoption of 2013-10 to have a material effect on its operating results or financial position.

In July 2013, The FASB has issued ASU No. 2013-11, Income Taxes (Topic 740): Presentation of an Unrecognized Tax Benefit When a Net Operating Loss Carryforward, a Similar Tax Loss, or a Tax Credit Carryforward Exists (a consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task Force).U.S. GAAP does not include explicit guidance on the financial statement presentation of an unrecognized tax benefit when a net operating loss carryforward, a similar tax loss, or a tax credit carryforward exists. The amendments in this ASU state that an unrecognized tax benefit, or a portion of an unrecognized tax benefit, should be presented in the financial statements as a reduction to a deferred tax asset for a net operating loss carryforward, a similar tax loss, or a tax credit carryforward, except as follows. To the extent a net operating loss carryforward, a similar tax loss, or a tax credit carryforward is not available at the reporting date under the tax law of the applicable jurisdiction to settle any additional income taxes that would result from the disallowance of a tax position or the tax law of the applicable jurisdiction does not require the entity to use, and the entity does not intend to use, the deferred tax asset for such purpose, the unrecognized tax benefit should be presented in the financial statements as a liability and should not be combined with deferred tax assets. This ASU applies to all entities that have unrecognized tax benefits when a net operating loss carryforward, a similar tax loss, or a tax credit carryforward exists at the reporting date. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2013. For nonpublic entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2014. Early adoption is permitted. The amendments should be applied prospectively to all unrecognized tax benefits that exist at the effective date. Retrospective application is permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption of 2013-11 to have a material effect on its operating results or financial position.

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 financial statements upon adoption.

NOTE 9 –INCOME (LOSS) PER SHARE

The Company calculates earnings per share in accordance with ASC 260, Earnings Per Share, which requires a dual presentation of basic and diluted earnings per share. Basic earnings per share are computed using the weighted average number of shares outstanding during the reporting period. Diluted earnings per share represents basic earnings per share adjusted to include the potentially dilutive effect of outstanding stock options, warrants and convertible note (using the if-converted method). For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, there were no potentially dilutive common shares because the Company recorded a net loss during this period.

The following table sets forth the computation of basic and diluted net income per common share:

NOTE 17 – TAX

(a) Corporation Income Tax (“CIT”)

On March 16, 2007, the National People’s Congress of the PRC adopted a new corporate income tax law (the “new CIT law”) in its fifth plenary session. The new corporate income tax law took effect on January 1, 2008. In accordance with the relevant tax laws and regulations of the PRC, the applicable corporate income tax (“CIT”) rate of Kandi Vehicles is 25%. However, likewise to fiscal year ended 2012, in fiscal year 2013, Kandi Vehicles, as a result of qualifying as a high technology company in China, in both years, is entitled to pay a reduced income tax rate of 15% and entitled to a research and development tax credit of 25% of 50% actual spending, with effective rate of 29.5% and 26.2% savings, resulting in a total tax benefit of 52.7% and 46.8% .

Kandi New Energy is a subsidiary of the Company and its applicable corporate income tax rate is 25%.

Yongkang Scrou Electric. Co., Ltd is a subsidiary of the Company and its applicable corporate income tax rate is 25%

Kandi Electric Vehicles (Wanning) Co., Ltd. is a subsidiary of the Company and its applicable corporate income tax rate is 25%.

Zhejiang Kandi Electric Vehicles Co., Ltd is a joint venture company (the "JV Company"). The Company has a 50% ownership interest in the JV Company and its applicable corporate income tax is 25%.

Kandi Electric Vehicles (Changxing) Co., Ltd. is a subsidiary of the JV Company and its applicable corporate income tax rate is 25%.

Zhejiang ZuoZhongYou Electric Vehicle Service Co., Ltd. is a 19% owned subsidiary of the JV Company and its applicable corporate income tax rate is 25%.

According to the PRC CIT reporting system, the CIT sales cut-off base is concurrent with the value added tax (“VAT”) which will be reported to the State Administration of Taxation (“SAT”) on a quarterly basis. Since the VAT and CIT are accounted for on a VAT tax basis that recorded all sales on a “State provided official invoices” reporting system, the Company is reporting the CIT according to the SAT prescribed tax reporting rules. Under the VAT tax reporting system, sales cut-off did not take the accrual basis but rather on a VAT taxable reporting basis. Therefore, when the company adopted US GAAP on accrual basis, the sales cut-off CIT timing difference which is derived from the VAT reporting system and will create a temporary sales cut-off timing difference; this difference is reflected in the deferred tax assets or liabilities calculations on the income tax estimate reported in the Form 10-K.

Effective January 1, 2007, the Company adopted ASC 740, Income Taxes. The interpretation addresses the determination of whether tax benefits claimed or expected to be claimed on a tax return should be recorded in the financial statements.

Under ASC 740, the Company may recognize the tax benefit from an uncertain tax position only if it is more likely than not that the tax position will be sustained on examination by the taxing authorities, based on the technical merits of the position. The tax benefits recognized in the financial statements from such a position should be measured based on the largest benefit that has a greater than fifty percent likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement. ASC 740 also provides guidance on de-recognition, classification, interest and penalties on income taxes, accounting in interim periods and requires increased disclosures. As of September 30, 2013, the Company does not have a liability for unrecognized tax benefits. The Company files income tax returns to the Internal Revenue Services (“IRS”) and states where the Company has operation. The Company is subject to U.S. federal or state income tax examinations by IRS and relevant state tax authorities for years after 2006. During the periods open to examination, the Company has net operating loss carry forwards (“NOLs”) for U.S. federal and state tax purposes that have attributes from closed periods. Since these NOLs may be utilized in future periods, they remain subject to examination. The Company also files certain tax returns in China. As of September 30, 2013 the Company was not aware of any pending income tax examinations by China tax authorities. The Company's policy is to record interest and penalties on uncertain tax provisions as income tax expense. As of September 30, 2013, the Company has no accrued interest or penalties related to uncertain tax positions. The Company has not recorded a provision for U.S federal income tax for the reporting period ended September 30, 2013 due to the net operating loss position and having net operating loss carry forward in the United States.

            Pursuant to the JV agreement, the Company contributed RMB 500,000,000 (approximately $80,788,464) in the second quarter of 2013 to establish the JV Company. In the third quarter of 2013, in connection with the acquisition of Kandi Changxing, the JV Company paid the Company RMB 400,000,000 (approximately $64,292,970). Because Kandi Changxing did not commence normal manufacturing operation until after it was acquired by, and transferred to, the JV Company, the divestiture of Kandi Changxing had a minor impact on the Company’s profits and losses.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

Policy affecting options, and warrants

The Company’s stock option cost is recorded in accordance with ASC 718 and ASC 505.

The fair value of stock options is estimated using the Black-Scholes-Merton model. The Company’s expected volatility assumption is based on the historical volatility of the Company’s stock. The expected life assumption is primarily based on the expiration date of the option. The risk-free interest rate for the expected term of the option is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant. Stock option expense recognized is based on awards expected to vest, and there were no estimated forfeitures. ASC standards requires forfeitures to be estimated at the time of grant and revised in subsequent periods, if necessary, if actual forfeitures differ from those estimates.

Warrant costs are recorded in liabilities and equities, respectively, in accordance with ASC 480, ASC 505 and ASC 815.

The fair value of a warrant, which is classified as a liability, is estimated using the Black-Scholes-Merton model or the lattice model. The Company’s expected volatility assumption is based on the historical volatility of the Company’s stock. The expected life assumption is primarily based on the expiration date of the warrant. The risk-free interest rate for the expected term of the warrant is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of measurement. The warrants, which are freestanding derivatives and are classified as liabilities on the balance sheet, will be measured at fair value on each reporting date, with decreases in fair value recognized in earnings and increases in fair values recognized in expenses.

The Company determined that the fair value of equity based warrants, which are not considered derivatives under ASC 815, should be estimated using the Black-Scholes-Merton model. The Company’s expected volatility assumption is based on the historical volatility of the Company’s stock. The expected life assumption is primarily based on the expiration date of the warrant. The risk-free interest rate for the expected term of the option is based on the U.S. Treasury yield curve in effect at the time of grant.

Estimates affecting accounts receivable and inventories

The preparation of our consolidated financial statements requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect our reporting of assets and liabilities (and contingent assets and liabilities). These estimates are particularly significant where they affect the reported net realizable value of the Company’s accounts receivable and inventories.

37


Accounts receivable are recognized and carried at net realizable value. An allowance for doubtful accounts is recorded in periods where we determine a loss is probable, based on our assessment of specific factors such as troubled collection, historical experience, accounts aging, ongoing business relation and other factors. Accounts are written off after an exhaustive collection effort. If accounts receivable are to be provided for, or written off, they are recognized in the consolidated statement of operations within operating expenses line item. As of September 30, 2013 and December 31, 2012, the Company recorded no allowance for doubtful accounts. This determination was made per our management's judgment, which was based on their best knowledge.

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost, determined on a weighted average basis, or net realizable value. Net realizable value is the estimated sales price, in the ordinary course of business, less the estimated cost of completion and the estimated costs necessary to make the sale. When inventories are sold, their carrying amount is charged to expense in the year in which the revenue is recognized. Write-downs for declines in net realizable value or for losses of inventories are recognized as an expense in the year the impairment or loss occurs. There were no declines in net realizable value of inventory for the reporting period ended September 30, 2013.

While the Company currently believes that there is little likelihood that actual results will differ materially from these current estimates, if customer demand for our products decreases significantly in the near future, or if the financial condition of our customers deteriorates in the near future, the Company could realize significant write downs for slow-moving inventories or uncollectible accounts receivable.

Revenue Recognition

Revenues represent the invoiced value of goods sold, recognized upon the shipment of goods to customers. Revenues are recognized when all of the following criteria are met:

Persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists;
Delivery has occurred or services have been rendered;
The seller’s price to the buyer is fixed or determinable; and
Collectability is reasonably assured.

Off-Road Vehicles

During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, revenues from our ATVs experienced a significant increase of $3,076,531, or 65.5% compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2012. This was attributable to 23.3% increase in the average unit price and an increase in overall unit sales of 34.2% . In the nine months ended September 30, 2013, our ATV Sales continued to increase; in comparison to nine months ended September 30, 2012, we sold more higher end and middle end ATVs during this reporting period.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2013, we experienced an increase in revenue realized from Go-Kart sales of $3,301,025 or 14.8% compared to the same period last year. This was mainly attributable to the fact that the Company sold more Go-Kart units in this nine months of 2013, especially during the second and third quarter of 2013, resulting in a 17.9% increase from 24,354 units in the nine months of 2012 to 28,707 units during the same period in 2013, although this increase in unit sales was somewhat offset by a 2.6% decrease in average unit price compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2012.

We experienced a significant decrease in revenue generated from sales of our three-wheeled motorcycle (TT). TT sales revenue decreased from $893,337 in the nine months ended September 30, 2012 to $380,748 during the nine months ended September 30, 2013. This 57.4% decrease in revenue was primarily attributable to a 67.7% decrease in unit sales. The decrease in unit sales was partially caused by the 31.8% increase in average unit price during this nine months ended September 30, 2013 compared to the same period of last year. During the three months ended March 31, 2013, the TTs we sold were mainly price-competitive gas-electric hybrid TTs in the Chinese markets; however, during the second quarter and third quarter of 2013, majority of the TTs sold were higher price models, resulting in a total overall unit price increase.

UTVs experienced a significant increase in revenues from $134,740 to $1,150,885. This 754.2% increase was mainly due to a 1,122.2% increase in unit sales, from 36 in the nine months ended September 30, 2012 to 440 units during the nine months ended September 30, 2013. This significant increase is primarily attributable to several large UTV orders received by the Company during the nine months ended September 30, 2013. However, the UTVs purchased in these orders were cheaper models in comparison to other UTV products offered by the Company.

EV

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, revenues from EV sales increased by $1,201,352, or 22.2%, compared to the same period in 2012. This increase was primarily attributable to an increase in the average unit sales price of 20.4% over the comparable period of last year; in addition, we experienced a slight 1.4% increase in unit sales. This significant average unit price increase was primarily due to sales of a higher price model during the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to the same period of 2012. However, in comparison to the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2012, sales of EVs decreased in the first nine months of 2013. This decrease is likely attributable to the discontinuation of a government subsidy at the end of fiscal year ended 2012. However, the Company believes the EV sales will pick up in the fourth quarter of 2013, especially after the Chinese government introduced the new subsidy in September of 2013.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, revenues generated from sales of our refitted cars decreased by $1,307,972, or 55.4% compared to the same period of last year. This decrease in revenue was primarily attributable to a 54.7% decrease in unit sales, from 86 units during the nine months ended September 30, 2012 to 39 units during the nine months ended September 30, 2013. In addition to sales of our refitted cars, the Company generated revenue by refitting other companies’ vehicles to meet special requirements for certain customers. Since this line of business has not been a strategic focus or resulted in a large-scale business, the Company decided to discontinue this business during the 3rd quarter of 2013 and focus its efforts on increasing its electric vehicles revenue in the Hangzhou market.

Auto Generators, Auto Equipment, and Electric Motors

On April 25, 2012, the Company acquired Yongkang Scrou, a manufacturer of various auto generators. For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, a total of 43,949 sets of auto generators were sold with sales totaling $1,459,807. Compared to the same period of last year, in the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the revenue created by our auto generator business decreased 40.2%, which was mainly attributable to a 28.5% decrease in unit sales, and a 16.4% decrease in average unit price. The significant decrease in unit price is because a portion of the auto generators sold during the nine months ended September 30, 2013 were simplified products specialized for a customer. The main reason for the decrease in unit sales is because Scrou adjusted its product structure and target customer base. Scrou’s main products are now auto generators, auto equipment, and electric motors. Scrou provides these products to our vehicles; sales in connection with providing these products to our vehicles are categorized as inter-company transactions and have been eliminated in consolidation.

The following table shows the breakdown of our revenues from its customers by geographical markets based on the location of the customer during the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012:

    Nine Months Ended September 30  
    2013           2012        
    Sales     Percentage     Sales     Percentage  
North America $  4,388,519     10%   $  4,462,269     12%  
China   38,576,289     88%     32,868,171     86%  
Europe & other region   1,010,655     2%     851,771     2%  
Total $  43,975,463     100%   $  38,182,211     100%

This was mainly attributable to our increase in revenue. Simultaneously, our gross margin increased to 23.4% compared to 21.9% for the same period of 2012. This increase was primarily due to Yongkang Scrou’s adjustment to its product structure and disposal of its old products in the second quarter of 2012, which caused our gross margin in the nine months of 2012 to be relatively lower.

41


(d) Selling and distribution expenses

Selling and distribution expenses were $263,414 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $331,750 for the same period in 2012, representing a 20.6% decrease.

Excluding stock based compensation costs and stock award costs, our net general and administrative expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 were $4,745,580, an increase of 94.8% for the same period of 2012. This increase was primarily attributable to the cost related to the fund raising which happened in the third quarter of 2013, and to higher depreciation and amortization costs.

(f) Research and development

Research and development expenses were $1,863,020 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $2,006,269 from the same period in 2012, a 7.1% decrease. This decrease was primarily because research and development for models was nearly finished in year 2012.

Excluding the effects aforementioned, net interest expenses for this reporting period was ($2,472,377), a 1,748.4% increase compared to a net interest expense of ($133,761) for the same period in 2012. This increase was primarily attributable to: (i) a decrease in interest related income earned on notes receivable issued to third parties and (ii) bond interest expense incurred by the Company.

(i) Change in fair value of financial instruments

For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, interest expense, caused by changes in the fair value of warrants issued to investors and placement agents, was ($6,956,963), while, for the same period of last year, interest income was $1,078,795. The primary reason for this significant change was the issuance of investor and placement agent warrants pursuant to a registered direct offering that closed in the third quarter of 2013.

(j) Other Income, Net

Net other income was $217,160 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $285,805 for the same period of last year, a decrease of $68,645 or 24.0% . This decrease is primarily because the Company sold more fittings of the EV cars during the reporting period of 2012.

42

While for the same period of 2012, investment losses were primarily attributable to our 30% equity interest investment in Jinhua Service. The JV Company recorded a high loss because the JV Company was still in the start-up phase.

(l) Net income from Continuing Operation

The operating performance of the Company’s continuing business for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 reflected a net loss of ($6,469,404), a significant decrease of ($10,352,102) or 266.6% from a net income of $3,882,698 for the same period of last year. This decrease was primarily attributable to the effects resulting from a change in the fair value of warrants discussed in (i) above.

Excluding the effects of option related expenses, which was $0 and $19,053 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively; the stock award expense, which was $81,042 and $65,733 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively; convertible note interest expenses, which were $0 and $2 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively; the effect caused by amortization of discount on convertible notes, which was $0 and $43 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively; and the change in the fair value of financial derivatives, which was ($6,956,963) and $1,078,795 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012 respectively, for the nine months ended September 30, 2013, the Company’s net income from continuing operations was $568,601, a decrease of 80.3%, compared to a net income of $2,888,734 for the same period of 2012, excluding the same effects.

(a) Revenue

For the three months ended September 30, 2013, our revenue increased by 34.3% from $12,765,694 to $17,145,512 as compared to the three months ended September 30, 2012, mainly because of increased sales of our ATV and Go-Kart vehicles compared to the same period of last year. For the three months ended September 30, 2013, our EV business only recorded a slight increase in unit sales and revenue compared to the same period of 2012. However, the Company believes that EV sales will pick up in the fourth quarter of 2013, due to the introduction of a new subsidy in September of 2013 by the Chinese government.

The following table lists the number of vehicles sold, categorized by vehicle types, within the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012:

    Three Months Ended September 30

Total $  17,145,512     100%   $  12,765,694     100%  

For the three months ended September 30, 2013, about 70% of sales in China are sales to Chinese export agents, who resell the company’s products to markets around the world.

(b) Cost of goods sold

Cost of goods sold during the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $13,032,352, representing an increase of $3,490,665, or 36.6% compared to three months ended September 30, 2012, which can be primarily attributed to the increase in our revenues.

(c) Gross profit

Gross profit for the third quarter of 2013 increased 27.6% to $4,113,160, compared to $3,224,007 for the same period last year. This was attributable to our increase in revenue. However, our gross margin decreased to 24.0% compared to 25.3% for the same period of 2012. This decrease was primarily because the Company reduced the sales price of a model of EV cars the Company sold during the three months ended September 30, 2012.

(d) Selling and distribution expenses

45


Selling and distribution expenses were $102,380 for the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $158,714 for the same period in 2012, a 35.5% decrease. This decrease is primarily attributable to a decrease in our advertising fees, export related fees and custom inspection fees during this reporting period.

(e) General and administrative expenses

General and administrative expenses were $2,893,935 for the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $940,930 for the same period in 2012, a 207.6% increase. For the three months ended September 30, 2013, general and administrative expenses included $28,000 in expenses for common stock awards to employees and consultants for financing and investor relations services, compared to $36,907 for the same period in 2012.

This increase was primarily attributable to costs related to the capital raise that occurred in the third quarter of 2013.

(f) Research and development

Research and development expenses were $500,864 for the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $630,083 from the same period in 2012, a 20.5% decrease. This decrease was primarily because in the 3rd quarter of 2012 the Company increased its spending on research and development for electrical vehicles equipped with lithium battery, while this research and development was nearly finished in year 2012.

(g) Government grants

Government grants totaled $11,077 for the three months ended September 30, 2013, a decrease of 46.3% from $20,634 for the corresponding period in 2012.

(h) Net interest (expense) income

Net interest expense was ($1,184,282) for the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to interest expense of ($76,866) for the same period last year, representing a 1,440.7% increase. For the three months ended September 30, 2013 and September 30,2012, the interest expense related to convertible notes, and the interest incurred by debt discount amortization were all $0, since all remaining convertible notes were converted during the first fiscal quarter of 2012. Therefore, the net interest expense, after excluding the effects aforementioned, for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012 did not change. This increase was primarily attributable to: (i) a decrease of interest income earned on notes receivable issued to third parties; and (ii) bond interest expenses and discount interest charges for bank notes incurred by the Company.

(i) Change in fair value of financial instruments

For the three months ended September 30, 2013, interest expense, caused by an increase in the fair value of warrants issued to investors and placement agents, was ($6,864,624), while, for the same period of last year, interest expense caused by an increase in the fair value of warrants, was ($882,731). This significant change was primarily because the Company issued investor and placement agent warrants pursuant to a direct registered offering that closed in the third quarter of 2013.

(j) Other Income, Net

Net other income was $40,647 for the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $239,203 for the same period of last year, a significant decrease of $198,556 or 83.0% . This decrease is primarily because the Company sold more fittings of the EV cars during the third quarter of 2012.

(k) Investment (loss) income

Investment losses were ($125,428) for the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to a loss of ($18,259) for the corresponding period in 2012. For the three months ended September 30, 2013, investment losses of ($15,788) were attributable to our 30% equity interest investment in Jinhua Service, and investment losses of ($109,640) were attributable to our 50% ownership interest in the JV Company, while for the three months ended September 30, 2012, investment losses were purely attributable to our 30% equity interest investment in Jinhua Service.

46


(l) Net income from Continuing operation

The operating performance of the Company for the three months ended September 30, 2013 reflected a net loss of ($7,763,851), a decrease of $8,358,369 or 1,405.9% from a net income of $594,518 for the same period of last year. This decrease was primarily attributable to the change in the fair value of warrants discussed in (i) above.

Excluding the effects of stock award expense, which was $28,000 and $36,907 for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012 respectively, and the change of the fair value of financial derivatives, which was ($6,864,624) and ($882,731) for the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012 respectively, for the three months ended September 30, 2013, the Company’s net loss was ($871,227), significantly changed from a net income of $1,514,156 for the same period of 2012, excluding the same effects. This change is primarily attributable to the increase of general and administrative expense and net interest expense in this reporting period.

47


Financial Condition

Working Capital, Liquidity and Capital Resources

The Company had a working capital deficit of ($24,027,852) as of September 30, 2013, compared to a working capital surplus of $25,903,447 as of September 30, 2012.

As of September 30, 2013, the Company had credit lines from commercial banks of $54,946,841, of which $33,488,312 was used as of September 30, 2013. The Company believes that its cash flows generated internally may not be sufficient to support growth of future operations and repay short term bank loans for the next twelve months if needed. However, the Company believes its access to existing financing sources and established relationships with PRC banks will enable it to meet its obligations and fund its ongoing operations.

Historically, the Company has financed itself through short-term commercial bank loans obtained from PRC banks. The term of these loans are typically for one year; upon our payment of all outstanding principal and interest the PRC banks have typically rolled over such loans for an additional one-year term, subject to interest rate adjustments to reflect prevailing market rates. The Company believes these lending arrangements have not changed and that short-term bank loans will continue to be available on customary terms and conditions.

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures About Market Risk.

Exchange Rate Risk

Our operations are conducted mainly in the PRC. As such, our earnings are subject to movements in foreign currency exchange rates when transactions are denominated in RMB, which is our functional currency. Accordingly, our operating results are affected by changes in the exchange rate between the U.S. dollar and those currencies.

Economic and Political Risks

The Company’s operations in the PRC are subject to special considerations and significant risks not typically associated with companies in North America and Western Europe. These include risks associated with, among others, the political, economic and legal environment and foreign currency exchange. The Company’s performance may be adversely affected by changes in the political and social conditions in the PRC, and by changes in governmental policies with respect to laws and regulations, anti-inflationary measures, currency conversion, remittances abroad, and rates and methods of taxation, among other things.

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

The Company maintains a system of disclosure controls and procedures that is designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in this Form 10-Q, and in other reports required to be filed under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”), is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms for such filings. Management of the Company, under the direction of the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, reviewed and performed an evaluation of the effectiveness of the Company's disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15a(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of September 30, 2013. Based on that review and evaluation, the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer concluded that our disclosure controls and procedures are effective to provide reasonable assurance that information required to be disclosed by us in reports that we file or submit under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms and is accumulated and communicated to management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There were no changes to our internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Exchange Act) that occurred during the period covered by this report that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Inherent Limitations on Effectiveness of Controls

Our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, does not expect that our disclosure controls and procedures will prevent or detect all errors and all fraud. Disclosure controls and procedures, no matter how well designed, operated and managed, can provide only reasonable assurance that the objectives of the disclosure controls and procedures are met. Because of the inherent limitations of disclosure controls and procedures, no evaluation of such disclosure controls and procedures can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, have been detected.
