NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)
 
1.            BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The accompanying unaudited interim condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the instructions to Form 10-Q and Article 10 of Regulation S-X. Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and footnotes normally required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America for financial statements. The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements do reflect all the adjustments that, in the opinion of management, are necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods reported. Such adjustments are of a normal and recurring nature. Our operating results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the year ending December 31, 2011.

These condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes to consolidated financial statements included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010. There have been no material changes in the significant accounting policies followed by us during the six months ended June 30, 2011.

2.           SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

The principal activities of the Company consist of production and sales of fruit concentrate, fruit juice beverages, and other fruit related products in the PRC and overseas markets.   All activities of the Company are principally conducted by subsidiaries operating in the PRC.
 
Basis of Preparation

These condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”).
 
Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the accounts of (i) SkyPeople Fruit Juice, Inc. (“SkyPeople”), (ii) Pacific Industry Holding Group Co., Ltd. (“Pacific”), a company incorporated under the laws of the Republic of Vanuatu and a wholly owned subsidiary of SkyPeople, (iii) Harmony MN Inc. (“HMN”), a company organized under the laws of Delaware and a wholly owned subsidiary of SkyPeople, (iv) SkyPeople Juice Group Co., Ltd., formerly known as Shaanxi Tianren Organic Food Co., Ltd. as of December 18, 2009 (“SkyPeople (China)”), a company incorporated under the laws of the People’s Republic of China (the “PRC”) and a 99.78% owned subsidiary of Pacific, (v) Shaanxi Qiyiwangguo Modern Organic Agriculture Co., Ltd. (“Shaanxi Qiyiwangguo”), a company incorporated under the laws of the PRC and 91.15% owned subsidiary of SkyPeople (China), (vi) Huludao Wonder Fruit Co., Ltd. (“Huludao Wonder”), a company incorporated under the laws of the PRC and a wholly owned subsidiary of SkyPeople (China), (vii) Yingkou Trusty Fruit Co., Ltd. (“Yingkou”), a company incorporated under the laws of the PRC and a wholly owned subsidiary of SkyPeople (China), and (viii) China Kiwi King Ltd., a company incorporated under the laws of Hong Kong and a wholly owned subsidiary of Pacific. All material inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Pacific and SkyPeople (China) were entities under common control and accordingly carryover basis was used for SkyPeople (China).  Reverse acquisition accounting was applied to the consolidation of SkyPeople with Pacific.  Purchase accounting was applied to the consolidation of China Kiwi King Ltd. with Pacific and HMN with SkyPeople.

SkyPeople (China) holds a 91.15% interest in Shaanxi Qiyiwangguo since June 2006, after it acquired 21.05% of the shares held by Shaanxi Xirui Co. Ltd.  In July 2009, the Company canceled the registration of Shaanxi Qiyiwanguo with Xi’an State Administration for Industry and Commerce and registered with Zhouzhi County State Administration  for Industry and Commerce. As of June 30, 2011, the record of Zhouzhi County State Administration for Industry and Commerce had not yet been updated to reflect the increase in the Company’s interest percentage of Shaanxi Qiyiwangguo in June 2006. In June 2011, the Company submitted the stock transfer agreement between SkyPeople (China) and Shaanxi Xirui Co. Ltd. dated June 26, 2006, which proves SkyPeople (China)’s ownership interest of 91.15% in Shaanxi Qiyiwangguo, to the Zhouzhi County State Administration for Industry and Commerce and requested to update its record of information.

SKYPEOPLE FRUIT JUICE, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

Use of Estimates

The Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and this 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 condensed consolidated financial statements and reported amounts of revenue and expenses during the reporting period. The significant areas requiring the use of management estimates include, but are not limited to, the allowance for doubtful accounts receivable, estimated useful life and residual value of property, plant and equipment, provision for staff benefits, valuation of change in fair value of warrant liability, recognition and measurement of deferred income taxes and valuation allowance for deferred tax assets. Although these estimates are based on management’s knowledge of current events and actions management may undertake in the future, actual results may ultimately differ from those estimates.

During the second quarter of fiscal year 2011, SkyPeople (China) reversed approximately $242,150 in accruals based on new and updated information.  This was related to the reversal of provision for employee welfare that was included in accrued expenses as of December 31, 2010.  The Company does not have any legal or contractual obligation for the payment of the accrued employee welfare based on the current relevant PRC regulation, hence the over-provision of $242,150 was reversed during the second quarter of fiscal 2011.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents included cash on hand and demand deposits placed with banks which are unrestricted as to withdrawal and use and with an original maturity of three months or less.

Restricted Cash

Restricted cash consists of cash equivalents used as collateral to obtain a short-term notes payable.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

In accordance with the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 360-10, Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets, long-lived assets, such as property, plant and equipment and purchased intangibles subject to amortization are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable, or it is reasonably possible that these assets could become impaired as a result of technological or other industrial changes. The determination of recoverability of assets to be held and used is made by comparing the carrying amount of an asset to future undiscounted cash flows to be generated by the assets. If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured as the amount by which the carrying amount of the assets exceeds the fair value of the assets. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or fair value less cost to sell. During the reporting periods there was no impairment loss of long-lived assets recognized.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

FASB Accounting Standards Codification Topic on Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (“ASC 820”) requires that the Company disclose estimated fair values of financial instruments.

Earnings Per Share

Under ASC 260-10, Earnings Per Share, basic EPS excludes dilution for Common Stock equivalents and is calculated by dividing net income available to common stockholders by the weighted-average number of Common Stock outstanding for the period. Our Series B Convertible Preferred Stock is a participating security. Consequently, the two-class method of income allocation is used in determining net income available to common stockholders.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

Diluted EPS is calculated by using the treasury stock method, assuming conversion of all potentially dilutive securities, such as stock options and warrants. Under this method, (i) exercise of options and warrants is assumed at the beginning of the period and shares of Common Stock are assumed to be issued, (ii) the proceeds from exercise are assumed to be used to purchase Common Stock at the average market price during the period, and (iii) the incremental shares (the difference between the number of shares assumed issued and the number of shares assumed purchased) are included in the denominator of the diluted EPS computation. The numerators and denominators used in the computations of basic and diluted EPS are presented in the following table.

Shipping and Handling Costs

Shipping and handling amounts billed to customers in related sales transactions are included in sales revenues and shipping expenses incurred by the Company are reported as a component of selling expenses. The shipping and handling expenses of $224,344 and $183,525 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, and $542,744 and $527,489 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, are reported in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income as a component of selling expenses.
 
Accounts Receivable
 
Accounts receivable are recognized and carried at the original invoice amount less an allowance for any uncollectible amount. Allowance is made when collection of the full amount is no longer probable. The Company periodically evaluates its receivables for collectability based on historical experience, current economic climate, as well as recent account activities and the length of time receivables are past due, and writes off receivables when they become uncollectible.  The Company believed that its allowance for doubtful accounts was adequate as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010.

Inventories
 
Inventories consist of raw materials, packaging materials (which include ingredients and supplies) and finished goods (which include finished juice in the bottling and canning operations). Inventories are valued at the lower of cost or market. We determine cost on the basis of the weighted average method.  The Company periodically reviews inventories for obsolescence and any inventories identified as obsolete are reserved or written off.
 
Revenue Recognition
 
The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with ASC 605, Revenue Recognition. Revenue from sales of products is recognized upon shipment or delivery to customers, provided that persuasive evidence of sales arrangements exist, title and risk of loss have been transferred to the customers, the sales amounts are fixed and determinable and collection of the revenue is reasonably assured and customers have no contractual right to return products. Historically, the Company has not had any returned products. Accordingly, no provision has been made for returnable goods.

Government Subsidies

A government subsidy is recognized only when the Company complies with any conditions attached to the grant and there is reasonable assurance that the grant will be received.

The government subsidies recognized were $88,697 and $2,204,843 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, and were $571,764 and $2,248,405 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. The government subsidies are included in other income of the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income. The government subsidies recognized for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 were for the VAT rebates on the export to foreign countries, and the government subsidies recognized for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010 were mainly for research and development activities.

Advertising and Promotional Expense

Advertising and promotional costs are expensed as incurred and are included in selling expenses. The Company incurred $1,760 and $1,904 in advertising and promotional costs for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, and $10,051 and $1,980 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

Property, Plant and Equipment

Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and any impairment losses. Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the useful lives of the assets. Major renewals and betterments are capitalized and depreciated; maintenance and repairs that do not extend the life of the respective assets are expensed as incurred. Upon disposal of assets, the cost and related accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss is included in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income.

Construction in progress primarily represents the renovation costs of plant, machinery and equipment stated at cost less any accumulated impairment loss, which is not depreciated.  Costs and interest on borrowings incurred are capitalized and transferred to property and equipment upon completion, at which time depreciation commences.  Cost of repairs and maintenance is expensed as incurred.
 
Depreciation related to property, plant and equipment used in production is reported in cost of sales. We estimated that the residual value of the Company’s property and equipment ranges from 3% to 5%.  Property, plant and equipment are depreciated over their estimated useful lives as follows:
 
Buildings
20-30 years
Machinery and equipment
5-10 years
Furniture and office equipment
3-5 years
Motor vehicles
5 years

Depreciation expense included in general and administration expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 was $72,750 and $38,311, respectively, and was $120,822 and $78,546 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010,  respectively. Depreciation expense included in cost of sales for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 was $768,302 and $457,671, respectively, and was $1,540,483 and $885,193 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.
 
Foreign Currency and Comprehensive Income

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements are presented in U.S. dollars (“USD”). The financial statements of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries are measured using the local currency as the functional currency. However, the functional currency and the reporting currency of the Company are the USD. Assets and liabilities of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries are translated into USD from RMB at period-end exchange rates for assets and liabilities and weighted average exchange rates for revenue and expenses. Capital accounts are translated at their historical exchange rates when the capital transactions occurred. Translation adjustments are reported separately and accumulated in a separate component of equity (cumulative translation adjustment).

Other comprehensive income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010 represented foreign currency translation adjustments and were included in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income.

Income Taxes

Income taxes are provided on an asset and liability approach for financial accounting and reporting of income taxes. Any tax paid by subsidiaries during the period is recorded. Current tax is based on the profit or loss from ordinary activities adjusted for items that are non-assessable or disallowable for income tax purpose and is calculated using tax rates that have been enacted at the balance sheet date. Deferred income tax liabilities or assets are recorded to reflect the tax consequences in future years of differences between the tax basis of assets and liabilities and the financial reporting amounts at each period end. A valuation allowance is recognized if it is more likely than not that some portion, or all, of a deferred tax asset will not be realized.

The Company adopted FASB Interpretation No. 48 Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes- an interpretation of FASB Statement No. 109 (FIN48), which is codified as ASC 740. ASC 740 provides guidance for recognizing and measuring uncertain tax positions, and it prescribes a threshold condition that a tax position must meet for any of the benefits of the uncertain tax position to be recognized in the financial statements. ASC 740 also provides accounting guidance on derecognizing, classification
and disclosure of these uncertain tax positions. The adoption of FIN48 did not have a material impact on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial statements for the six months ended June 30, 2011.
 
Restrictions on Transfer of Assets out of the PRC
 
Dividend payments by PRC subsidiaries are limited by certain statutory regulations in the PRC. No dividends may be paid by PRC subsidiaries without first receiving prior approval from the State Administration of Foreign Exchange. Dividend payments are restricted to 90% of profits after tax.
 
The Company has not provided deferred taxes on undistributed earnings attributable to its PRC subsidiaries, as they are to be permanently reinvested.  On February 22, 2008, the Ministry of Finance (“MOF”) and the State Administration of Taxation (“SAT”) jointly issued Caishui 2008 Circular 1 (“Circular 1”). According to Article 4 of Circular 1, distributions of accumulated profits earned by foreign investment enterprises (“FIE”) prior to January 1, 2008 to their foreign investors will be exempt from withholding tax (“WHT”) while distribution of the profits earned by a FIE after January 1, 2008 to its foreign investors shall be subject to WHT.
 
The Company is a holding company incorporated in the State of Florida and does not have any assets or conduct any business operations other than its investments in its subsidiaries and affiliates, Pacific and SkyPeople (China). Since SkyPeople (China) intends to reinvest its earnings to further expand its businesses in mainland China, its PRC subsidiaries do not intend to declare dividends to their immediate foreign holding companies in the foreseeable future. Accordingly, the Company has not recorded any deferred taxes in relation to WHT on the cumulative amount of undistributed retained earnings since January 1, 2008.

SKYPEOPLE FRUIT JUICE, INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

Should the Company’s PRC subsidiaries distribute all their profits generated after December 31, 2007, the aggregate withholding tax amount will be approximately $5,842,940 and $4,999,432 as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010, respectively.
 
Operating Lease

The Company leased certain property, plant and equipment in the ordinary course of business.  The leases were classified as operating leases, in accordance with ASC Topic 840, Accounting for Leases. The Company records monthly rent expense equal to the total amount of the payments due in the reporting period over the lease term in accordance with U.S. GAAP.
 
The Company’s management expects that in the normal course of business, operating leases will be renewed or replaced by other leases.  The future minimum operating lease payments, for which the Company is contractually obligated as of June 30, 2011, are disclosed in the Note 12 to the condensed consolidated financial statements.

Land Usage Rights

The Company paid in advance for land usage rights according to Chinese laws. Prepaid land usage rights are amortized and recorded as lease expenses using the straight-line method over the tenure of the leases, which are 30 to 50 years.

Reportable Segments

We have six operating segments for financial reporting purposes for all periods presented in our condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with FASB ASC 280 “Segment Reporting”.

Research and Development
 
Research and development costs are expensed when incurred and are included in operating expenses.  The expenses were $138,241 and $267,182 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, and were $274,708 and $545,333 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.
 
Loss Contingency

The Company makes provision related to loss contingencies when a loss is probable and the amount is reasonably estimable. Although management believes, after consultation with the Company’s counsel, that adequate reserves have been provided for all known loss contingencies, the ultimate result will depend on the resolution of the uncertainties. Therefore, actual results may differ from such estimates and the difference may be material.

Retirement Costs

Retirement cost contributions relating to defined contribution plans are made based on a percentage of the relevant employees’ salaries and are included in the Condensed Consolidated Statements of Income and Comprehensive Income as they become payable. The assumptions used in calculating the obligation for retirement cost contributions depend on the local laws and regulations, interpretations and practices in respect thereof.

New Accounting Pronouncements

In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-05 Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Presentation of Comprehensive Income. The objective of this Update is to improve the comparability, consistency, and transparency of financial reporting and to increase the prominence of items reported in other comprehensive income. To increase the prominence of items reported in other comprehensive income and to facilitate convergence of U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), the FASB decided to eliminate the option to present components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of changes in stockholders’ equity, among other amendments in this Update. The amendments in this Update shall be applied retrospectively and is effective for public entities, for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. This update does may have impact on the Company on presentation of Comprehensive Income starting from quarter ended March 31, 2012.

In July 2010, FASB issued ASU No. 2010-20, Receivables (Topic 310) - Disclosures about the Credit Quality of Financing Receivables and the Allowance for Credit Losses (“ASU 2010-20”).  ASU 2010-20 enhances disclosures about the credit quality of financing receivables and the allowance for credit losses. The adoption of this update does not have any material impact on our financial statement disclosures.

In April 2010, FASB issued ASU No. 2010-13, Compensation—Stock Compensation (ASC Topic 718): Effect of Denominating the Exercise Price of a Share-Based Payment Award in the Currency of the Market in which the Underlying Equity Security Trades. This ASU codifies the consensus reached in EITF Issue No. 09-J, Effect of Denominating the Exercise Price of a Share-Based Payment Award in the Currency of the Market in which the Underlying Equity Security Trades. The amendments to the Codification clarify that an employee share-based payment award with an exercise price denominated in the currency of a market in which a substantial portion of the entity’s equity shares trades should not be considered to contain a condition that is not a market, performance, or service condition. This is effective for financial years beginning after December 15, 2010. The adoption of this update does not have any material impact on our results of operations or financial position.

In January 2010, FASB issued Codification Accounting Standards Update No. 2010-06 (ASU No. 2010-06), improving Disclosure about Fair Value Measurements, under Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures, to improve and provide new disclosures for recurring and nonrecurring fair value measurements under the three-level hierarchy of input for transfers in and out of Levels 1 and 2, and activity in Level 3.  This update also clarifies existing disclosures of the level of disaggregation for the classes of assets and liabilities and the disclosure about input and valuation techniques. ASU No. 2010-06 new disclosures and clarification of existing disclosure is effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2009, except for the disclosures about purchases, sales, issuances, and settlements in the roll forward of activity in Level 3 fair value measurements.  Those disclosures are effective for financial statements issued for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2010, and for interim periods within those fiscal years.  The adoption of ASU No. 2010-06 new disclosures and clarification of existing disclosure did not have any material impact on our condensed consolidated financial statements.

Other new pronouncements issued but not yet effective until after June 30, 2011 are not expected to have significant effect on the Company’s condensed consolidated financial position or results of operations.

3.           ACQUISITION OF YINGKOU

On November 25, 2009, the Company completed the acquisition of Yingkou Trusty Fruits Co., Ltd. (“Yingkou”) pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement that SkyPeople (China) (formerly known as Shaanxi Tianren Organic Food Co., Ltd. or “Shaanxi Tianren”) entered into with Xi’an Dehao Investment & Consulting Co., Ltd. (currently renamed as “Shaanxi Boai Pharmaceutical & Scientific Development Co., Ltd.” or “Xi’an Dehao” in short) on November 18, 2009 (see also Note 4 below). At the date of acquisition, Yingkou had not commenced operation and was in the process of completing the construction of the new facility. Yingkou commenced operating activities in the fourth quarter of 2010.  The Company believed that acquiring the production asset of apple concentrate would enhance the Company’s future growth opportunities and develop additional market share in the fruit juice business in the PRC. The net cash purchase price for Yingkou was RMB 22,700,000, or $3,323,913.  In accordance with ASC Top 805, Business Combinations, we allocated the purchase price to the tangible assets and intangible assets of Yingkou based on their estimated fair value.  We estimated that the fair value of the property, plant and equipment acquired approximated to the fair value of similar assets available on the market based on the information management received, as they are newly constructed.  Accordingly, we allocated $1,880,046 to various items of the current assets and $4,840,218 to the property, plant and equipment acquired.  The excess purchase price over the fair value of tangible assets acquired, which was $266,499, was attributable to an identifiable intangible asset, the land usage right, based on estimates and assumptions determined by management. The economic life of this land usage right was approximately 50 years and the land usage right is amortized over 50 years on the straight-line basis.  No goodwill was recognized.

4.    RELATED PARTY TRANSACTION

Pursuant to the Stock Exchange Agreement between Shaanxi Tianren Organic Food Co., Ltd. (“Shaanxi Tianren”) and Barron Capital dated February 25, 2008, Shaanxi Tianren was obligated to enter into a lease or purchase agreement with Yingkou Trusty Fruits Co., Ltd. (“Yingkou”) prior to March 26, 2008.  On March 20, 2008, Shaanxi Tianren signed a Letter of Intent with Yingkou Trusty Factory for the acquisition. In addition, Shaanxi Tianren was required to make arrangements, including without limitation acquisition arrangements, with Yingkou so that the financial statements of Yingkou could be consolidated into the Company’s financial statements in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

On May 26, 2008, Shaanxi Tianren shareholders unanimously agreed to purchase 100% of the ownership interest of Yingkou from Xi’an Dehao Investment & Consultation Co., Ltd. (currently named “Shaanxi Boai Pharmaceutical & Scientific Development Co., Ltd.” or “Xi’an Dehao”), a party unrelated to Shaanxi Tianren at the time.

On June 1, 2008, Shaanxi Tianren signed a Letter of Intent with Xi’an Dehao to purchase Yingkou and paid a refundable down payment of RMB 15 million.  Pursuant to the terms of the Letter of Intent, the purchase price would be based on the fair market value of the net assets of Yingkou at purchase time and the purchase agreement would be signed before August 31, 2008.

On June 25, 2008, Shaanxi Zhongqing Limited Liability Accounting Firm, which is approved by the PRC Ministry of Finance to perform assets valuation, estimated the fair value of assets and liabilities of Yingkou to be RMB 22.77 million.

On December 23, 2008 at the Board meeting of SkyPeople, Mr. Xue reported to the Board that the acquisition of Yingkou was pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement with Barron Capital dated February 25, 2008.  The Company was in the process of

finalizing the deal with the seller. The Board required Mr. Xue to provide the asset valuation report of Yingkou before the Board made any decision on the acquisition.  On January 9, 2009, the valuation report was provided to the Board.

Due to the then negative impact of the economic crisis, the price of concentrated apple in the international market dropped in 2009.  On March 20, 2009 and August 20, 2009, Shaanxi Tianren signed two supplement agreements to the Letter of Intent entered on June 1, 2008 with Xi’an Dehao to delay the purchase of Yingkou. On November 18, 2009, Shaanxi Tianren and Xi’an Dehao signed a purchase agreement for Yingkou, and the purchase price was RMB 22.70 million, which was based on the above estimate fair value of assets and liabilities of Yingkou provided by Shaanxi Zhongqing Limited Liability Accounting Firm on June 25, 2008.

On January 8, 2009, Xi’an Dehao increased its registered capital from RMB 2 million to RMB 22 million. To satisfy its registration requirement with the State Administration of Industry and Commerce, Mr. Lake Chen signed a Trust Agreement with Shaanxi Fortune Adventure Investment & Management Co., Ltd. (“Shaanxi Fortune”) on January 6, 2009, through which Shaanxi Fortune was entrusted to hold 46% of the then total equity interest of Xi’an Dehao owned by Mr. Lake Chen. Shaanxi Fortune is a PRC company, which was wholly owned by Yongke Xue (Chairman of the Board and CEO of SkyPeople), and Xiaoqin Yan (member of the Board of SkyPeople).  Pursuant to this Trust Agreement, Shaanxi Fortune would not receive any benefit or bear any legal risk arising from acting as a shareholder trustee or a director of Xi’an Dehao. In addition, Shaanxi Fortune should transfer its equity interest of Xi’an Dehao to Mr. Lake Chen or a third party appointed by Mr. Lake Chen within 3 years after the trust agreement was signed. Currently, Mr. Lake Chen holds 100% of the equity interest of Xi’an Dehao.

On November 10, 2009, Shaanxi Fortune transferred back its equity interest in Xi’an Dehao to Mr. Lake Chen, and the Board of Xi’an Dehao was dismissed.

On November 10, 2009, Shaanxi Delixin Assets Appraisal Co., Ltd., an asset valuation firm certified by the PRC Ministry of Finance, revaluated the assets of Yingkou and estimated its net assets value at RMB 22.90 million.

On November 25, 2009, Shaanxi Tianren acquired Yingkou pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement that Shaanxi Tianren entered into with Xi’an Dehao on November 18, 2009.

In the first quarter of fiscal 2011, Mr. Yongke Xue transferred 100% ownership interest of a company that he had previously registered under his name in Hong Kong to Pacific for no consideration. The registered capital of this company was HK $10,000, or approximately $1,286 based on the exchange rate on March 31, 2011.  The company was renamed as China Kiwi King Ltd. and it is currently expected to be used by the Company as a vehicle to conduct business in South Asia in the future, especially in the fresh fruits and fruits beverage business. This company had no operating activities since the date of incorporation. On April 15, 2011, this related party transaction was ratified by the Company’s Audit Committee according to the Company’s Related Party Transaction Policy.

The beverages line is expected to operate in the third quarter of 2011, and the construction of environmental projects is expected to be completed in early 2012. The estimated future capital noncontractual expenditure for the beverages line and environmental projects is $9.6 million.  The Company began renovation of its Qiyiwangguo factory in Zhouzhi County in the fourth quarter of 2010. The Company capitalized $10,814 as construction in progress as of June 30, 2011. Because of the road construction conducted by the local government around Qiyiwangguo factory, currently this project is halted and is expected to be completed by the end of the third quarter of 2011. There will be an estimated further expenditure of $24,000 to be incurred on this project, which is not a contractual obligation.

The Company currently does not have the title deed for the building of $2.2 million of the Qiyiwangguo factory. The Company plans to apply for the title deed after the planned construction of Qiyiwangguo is completed in 2012. In addition, the Company currently does not have the title deed for the $7.1 million building of the Yingkou factory, which was built in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2010. The Company is in the process of applying for the title deed from the relevant PRC authority.

7.           LAND USAGE RIGHTS
 
According to the laws of the PRC, the government owns all of the land in the PRC. The government of the PRC, its agencies and collectives hold all land ownership.  Companies or individuals are authorized to use the land only through land usage rights granted by the PRC government. Land usage rights can be transferred upon approval by the land administrative authorities of the PRC (State Land Administration Bureau) upon payment of the required land transfer fee. Accordingly, the Company paid in advance for land usage rights. Prepaid land usage rights are being amortized and recorded as lease expenses using the straight-line method over the terms of the leases, which range from 30 to 50 years. The amortization expense was $42,296 and $62,816 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, and was $87,151 and $125,640 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

8.           INCOME TAX
 
The Company is incorporated in the United States of America and is subject to United States federal taxation. No provisions for income taxes have been made, as the Company had no U.S. taxable income for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010. The applicable income tax rate for the Company was 34% for both of the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010. The amount of unrecognized deferred tax liabilities for temporary differences related to the dividend from foreign subsidiaries is not determined, because such determination is not practical.

NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)

Effective on January 1, 2008, the PRC Enterprise Income Tax Law, EIT Law, and Implementing Rules imposed a unified enterprise income tax rate of 25% on all domestic-invested enterprises and foreign-invested enterprises in the PRC, unless they qualify under certain limited exceptions. In December 2006, SkyPeople (China) was awarded the status of a nationally recognized High and New Technology Enterprise in Shaanxi Province, which entitled SkyPeople (China) to tax-free treatment from January 2007 to December 2008. As such, starting from January 1, 2009, four of the Company’s subsidiaries in the PRC, including SkyPeople (China), Shaanxi Qiyiwangguo, Yingkou and Huludao Wonder, were subject to an enterprise income tax rate of 25%. 

The Company had no material adjustments to its liabilities for unrecognized income tax benefits according to the provisions of ASC Topic 740, Income Taxes. The income tax expense was $2,693,386 and $3,428,871 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, and it was $763,578 and $1,922,974 for the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively. Since SkyPeople (China) intends to reinvest its earnings to further expand its businesses in mainland China, its PRC subsidiaries do not intend to declare dividends to their immediate foreign holding companies in the foreseeable future. Accordingly, the Company has not recorded any deferred taxes in relation to WHT on the cumulative amount of undistributed retained earnings since January 1, 2008. Apart from that, the Company did not have other significant temporary differences and hence had not recorded any deferred tax assets or liabilities as of June 30, 2011 and December 31, 2010.

10.           WARRANTS

Between February 22, 2008 and February 25, 2008, the Company entered into a series of transactions whereby we acquired 100% of the ownership interest in Pacific from the shareholders of Pacific in a share exchange transaction and raised $3,400,000 gross proceeds from certain accredited investors in a private placement transaction. These transactions, collectively hereinafter referred to as “Reverse Merger Transactions,” were consummated simultaneously on February 26, 2008, and as a result of the consummation of these transactions Pacific is now a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company.

The Company issued 4,666,667 warrants pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement dated February 26, 2008 with certain reset exercise price provisions. The reset provisions were recorded at their relative fair values at issuance and will continue to be recorded at fair value at each subsequent balance sheet date. Any change in value between reporting periods will be recorded as other income (expense). These warrants will continue to be reported as a liability until such time when they are exercised or expire. The fair value of these warrants is estimated using the Monte-Carlo simulation methods.

As of January 1, 2009, the grant date fair value of these warrants in the amount of $nil was reallocated from additional paid-in-capital and a warrant liability was recorded in the amount of $7,420,000, being the fair value of the warrants on January 1, 2009  offset by an adjustment to retained earnings of $7,420,000.
 
On June 2, 2009, the Company entered into an Exchange Agreement with the Investors, pursuant to which the Company issued to the Investors warrants to purchase an aggregate of 4,333,333 shares of Common Stock at a reduced exercise price (the “New Warrants”) in exchange for warrants to purchase an aggregate of 4,666,667 shares of Common Stock which had been issued to the Investors in February 2008 with an exercise price of $2.55 per share.  The fair value of the New Warrants was determined to be $15,600,000; accordingly, the Company recorded $8,180,000 in other expense relating to the change in the fair value of these warrants.

On November 3, 2009, 3,105,000 shares of Common Stock were issued in the public offering upon exercise of the warrants, and accordingly the Company recorded $9,100,000 in other income relating to the change in the fair value of the warrants. The fair value of the warrants upon exercise on November 3, 2009 of $4,657,500 were credited against additional paid in capital.

As of December 31, 2009, the fair value of the remaining 1,228,334 warrants was determined to be $3,377,917; accordingly, the Company recorded $1,535,417 in other expense related to the change in the fair value of these warrants.  There is no cash flow impact for the warrant liability until the warrants are exercised.

During the six months ended June 30, 2010, certain holders of warrants exercised warrants to purchase 1,228,333 shares of Common Stock. As of June 30, 2010, there were no remaining warrants; and accordingly the Company recorded $2,103,832 in other expense relating to the change in the fair value of the warrants. The fair value of the warrants upon exercise on June, 2010 of $5,481,749 was credited against additional paid- in capital.

On January 1, 2009, the Company adopted FASB Accounting Standard Codification Topic on Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures (“ASC 820”), which defines fair value, establishes a framework for measuring fair value in GAAP, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements. ASC 820 does not require any new fair value measurements, but provides guidance on how to measure fair value by providing a fair value hierarchy used to classify the source of the information. In February 2008, the FASB deferred the effective date of ASC 820 by one year for certain non-financial assets and non-financial liabilities, except those that are recognized or disclosed at fair value in the financial statements on a recurring basis (at least annually). The Company adopted the provisions of ASC 820, except as it applies to those non-financial assets and non-financial liabilities for which the effective date has been delayed by one year.

ASC 820 establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy of valuation techniques based on observable and unobservable input, which may be used to measure fair value and include the following:
 
Level 1 - Quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.
 
Level 2 - Input other than Level 1 that is observable, either directly or indirectly, such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities; quoted prices in markets that are not active; or other input that is observable or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities.
 
Level 3 - Unobservable input that is supported by little or no market activity and that is significant to the fair value of the assets or liabilities.

Classification within the hierarchy is determined based on the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement.

The following table presents a reconciliation of the warrant liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis using significant unobservable input (Level 3) from January 1, 2010 to June 30, 2010:

For the six months ended June 30, 2010, the net adjustment to fair value resulted in a loss of $2.1 million and is included in “Changes in the fair value of warrant liability” on the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of income and comprehensive income.

11.           COMMON STOCK
 
As of June 30, 2011, the Company had 25,690,402 shares of Common Stock issued and outstanding and 3,456,647 shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock issued and outstanding, including (i) 2,000,000 shares held in escrow as make good escrow shares in connection with our 2008 private placement, which shares are in the process of being released to the Company and will be canceled upon release, and (ii) 1,456,647 shares held by two shareholders of record, which shares can be converted into 971,099 shares of Common Stock.   As of June 30, 2011, the Company had outstanding warrants to purchase 100,000 shares of Common Stock. Assuming all warrants to purchase 100,000 shares of Common Stock with an exercise price of $4.50 per share are exercised and all shares of Series B Convertible Preferred Stock are converted, the total number of shares of Common Stock to be issued and outstanding will be 26,761,501.

The Company has not, historically, carried any property or casualty insurance and has never incurred property damage or incurred casualty losses. Management feels the chances of such an obligation arising are remote. Accordingly, no amounts have been accrued for any liability that could arise from a lack of insurance.

Deposits in banks in the PRC are not insured by any government entity or agency, and are consequently exposed to risk of loss. The Company believes the probability of a bank failure, causing loss to the Company, is remote.

On April 20, 2011, plaintiff Paul Kubala (on behalf of his minor child N.K.) (“Plaintiff”) filed a securities fraud class action lawsuit in the United States District Court, Southern District of New York against the Company, certain of its individual officers and/or directors, Yongke Xue and Xiaoqin Yan, and Rodman & Renshaw, LLC, the underwriter of the Company’s follow-on public offering consummated in August 2010, alleging violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder (the “Complaint”).  The purported class period is from March 31, 2010 through and including April 1, 2011.  Plaintiff seeks compensatory damages and attorneys fees and costs “in an amount to be proven at trial.”  It is unclear at this time what Plaintiff’s damages will be, if any.  Accordingly, the estimate of loss cannot be made at this stage.

Smagula, Spring Liu, Child Van Wagner & Bradshaw, PLLC, BDO Limited and Rodman & Renshaw, LLC, the underwriter of the Company’s follow-on public offering consummated in August 2010, alleging violations of Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder (the “Complaint”).  The purported class period is from March 31, 2010 through and including April 1, 2011.  Plaintiff seeks compensatory damages and attorney’s fees and costs “in an amount to be proven at trial.”  It is unclear at this time what Plaintiff’s damages will be, if any.   Accordingly, the estimate of loss cannot be made at this stage.

The Company has retained a defense counsel to represent it in the matter.  The Company has not yet responded to the Complaint, but believes the allegations contained in the Complaint are without merit and intends to defend itself vigorously against Plaintiff’s claims.  The Company has incurred legal expense of $0.3 million as of June 30, 2011 related to these pending litigations.

On July 11, 2011, pursuant to the approval of our Board of Directors, the Company entered into an indemnification agreement (each an “Indemnification Agreement” and collectively the “Indemnification Agreements”) with each of our directors and the chief financial offer, including Yongke Xue, Spring Liu, Xiaoqin Yan, Guolin Wang, John W. Smagula and Norman Ko (each an “Indemnitee”). Under each Indemnification Agreement, the Company agreed to indemnify each Indemnittee against liability arising out of the individual’s performance of his duties to the Company. The Indemnification Agreement provides indemnification in addition to the indemnification provided by our By-laws, Articles of Incorporation and applicable law. Among other things, the Indemnification Agreement indemnifies each director and officer for certain expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and settlement amounts actually and reasonably incurred by him in any action or proceeding, including any action by or in the right of the Company arising out of his service to the Company or to any other entity to which he provides services at the Company’s request. In addition, the Company agrees to advance expenses he may spend as a result of any proceeding against him as to which he could be indemnified.

 On July 8, 2011, the Company filed a civil action suit against Absaroka Capital and Kevin Barns, who published an article containing false allegations and accusations against the Company on June 1, 2011, for libel and tortuous interference with existing and prospective economic advantages in the United States District Court for the District of Wyoming, where Absaroka Capital is based. The Company seeks both general damages and all actual, consequential and/or compensatory damages to be proven at trial and exemplary and punitive damages in an amount to be proven at trial as a result of Defendants’ malicious intent in publishing the article on June 1, 2011. It is unclear at this time what the Company’s damages will be.

In addition to the above, from time to time, we may be subject to legal proceedings and claims in the ordinary course of business.
 
Other than the above, we are not currently a party to any litigation the outcome of which, if determined adversely to us, would individually or in the aggregate be reasonably expected to have a material adverse effect on our business, operating results, cash flows or financial condition.

16.            SEGMENTS REPORTING

The Company operates in six segments: concentrated apple juice and apple aroma, concentrated kiwifruit juice and kiwifruit puree, concentrated pear juice, fruit juice beverages, fresh fruits and vegetables, and others. Our concentrated apple juice and apple aroma is primarily produced by the Company’s Huludao Wonder factory and Yingkou factory; concentrated pear juice is primarily produced by the Company’s Jingyang factory. However, the Company uses similar production lines to manufacture concentrated apple juice and concentrated pear juice. In addition, both Shaanxi Province, where the Jingyang factory and Qiyiwangguo factory are located, and Liaoning Province, where the factory of Huludao Wonder and the Yingkou factory are located, are rich in fresh apple and pear supplies, the Jingyang factory also produces concentrated apple juice and the Huludao Wonder factory also produces concentrated pear juice when necessary. Concentrated kiwifruit juice and kiwifruit puree are primarily produced by the Company’s Qiyiwangguo factory, and Hedetang branded bottled fruit juice beverages are primarily produced by the Company’s Qiyiwangguo factory. The Company contracted Sanmenxia Prima Cider juice Co., Ltd. in Sanmenxia City, Henan Province, to blend and package the product line for the tetra pack of 250ml of Xian Mei Duo products. The Company’s other products include fructose, concentrated turnjujube juice, and other byproducts, such as kiwifruit seeds.

Concentrated fruit juice is used as a basic ingredient for manufacturing juice drinks and as an additive to fruit wine and fruit jam, cosmetics and medicines. The Company sells its concentrated fruit juice to domestic customers and exports directly or via distributors. The Company believes that its main export markets are the United States, the European Union, South Korea, Russia and the Middle East to North America, Europe, Russia, South Korea and the Middle East.  The Company sells its Hedetang branded bottled fruit beverages domestically primarily to supermarkets in the PRC. The Company sells its fresh fruit and vegetables to supermarkets and whole-sellers in the PRC. Some of these product segments might never individually meet the quantitative thresholds for determining reportable segments and we determine the reportable segments based on the discrete financial information provided to the chief operating decision maker. The chief operating decision maker evaluates the results of each segment in assessing performance and allocating resources among the segments. Since there is an overlap of services provided and products manufactured among different subsidiaries of the Company, the Company does not allocate operating expenses and assets based on the product segments. Therefore, operating expenses and assets information by segment are not presented.  Segment profit represents the gross profit of each reportable segment.

All inter-segment sales were sales from the concentrated kiwifruit juice, kiwifruit puree, concentrated apple juice and concentrated pear juice to fruit juice beverages. Total inter-segment sales were $513 thousands and $247 thousands for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.

The Company’s export business is primarily comprised of fruit juice concentrates. As most of the export sales are through distributors and therefore we are not certain exactly where the Company’s products are ultimately sold, revenue by geographical location is not presented. However, the Company estimates that our main export markets are the United States, the European Union, South Korea, Russia and the Middle East.  The Company’s export rate was 22% and 31% in the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.  Our major customers are disclosed under Note 14 “Concentrations, risks and uncertainties.”

17.     RESTRICTED CASH

Restricted cash consists of cash and cash equivalents used as collateral to obtain short-term notes payable. As of June 30, 2011, restricted cash used as collateral for the short-term notes payable was $793,233.

18.     MAJOR RISKS RELATED WITH DOING BUSINESS IN THE PRC

The majority of the Company’s sales, cost of manufacturing and marketing are transacted in RMB.  Consequently, the Company’s costs, revenue and operating margins may be affected by fluctuations in exchange rates, primarily between the U.S. dollars and RMB.

The Company conducts substantially all of its operations and generates most of its revenue in the PRC. Accordingly, economic, political and legal developments in the PRC will significantly affect our business, financial condition, results of operations and prospects. The PRC economy is in transition from a planned economy to a market oriented economy subject to plans adopted by the government that set national economic development goals. Policies of the PRC government can have significant effects on economic conditions in the PRC. Although the PRC government has been pursuing economic reform policies for more than two decades, the PRC government continues to exercise significant control over economic growth in the PRC through the allocation of resources, controlling payments of foreign currency, setting monetary policy and imposing policies that impact particular industries in different ways.

The Company could be adversely affected by diminishing confidence of the PRC consumers in the safety and quality of certain food products or ingredients. As a result, the Company may elect or be required to incur additional costs aimed at increasing consumer confidence in the safety of our products.

20.        SUBSEQUENT EVENTS

On July 15, 2011, the Company entered into a Letter of Intent with the People’s Government of Suizhong County, Liaoning Province, to establish a fruit and vegetable industry chain and further processing demonstration zone in Suizhong County, Liaoning Province (the “Suizhong project”).

The Suizhong project may include one or more of the following:  the construction and operation of fruit juice production lines, a vegetable and fruit flash freeze facility, a refrigeration storage facility and warehouse, a world class food safety testing center, a fruit and vegetable modern supply chain and e-commerce platform, a fruit and vegetable finished products processing center and exhibition center, etc. The implementation of the project is subject to further feasibility study, including an environmental study, government approval of the project (based on the feasibility study), a successful bid to obtain land required for the project, the Company's ability to fund the project based on the size and scope of the project as determined through the feasibility study and the entry into definitive agreements among the parties involved in the projects.

Upon entry into the Letter of Intent, the Company intends to conduct a detailed and comprehensive feasibility study of the Suizhou project with a qualified independent project appraiser. The scope of the Suizhong project and the investment amount are subject to change based on the feasibility study.  Upon successful completion of the feasibility study and assuming the Company is satisfied with the result of the feasibility study, the Company intends to submit the feasibility study and a detailed project proposal to the relevant government authorities for approval. If the government approves the Company’s project proposal, the parties will proceed with negotiation of the detailed terms of the project and the implementation of the Suizhou project is subject to the parties’ entry into definitive agreements for the project. The Company currently expects that it will take three to six months to complete the feasibility study, the detailed project proposal and to obtain the government’s decision on the project.  As the investment amount will be based on the feasibility study and the Company’s ability to finance this project, the impact on the Company’s future financial statement is unknown at the current stage.

On July 25, 2011, the Company issued MZ HCI, the Company’s investors’ relationship firm,  a warrant to purchase an aggregate of 75,000 shares of  the Company’s Common Stock at an exercise price of $4.50 per share as compensation for the services that MZ HCI  provided. As the exercise price of the warrants granted is higher than the current market value of the Company’s stock current, the impact on the Company’s future financial statements is expected to be immaterial.
 
On August 5, 2011, the Company received a shareholder demand letter from counsel for a purported shareholder. The letter is addressed to the Company’s Board of Directors and requests the Board of Directors take a number of actions in order to repair the alleged “harm” caused to the Company by certain of its directors and officers, as well as its current and former auditors. The Board of Directors is currently reviewing this shareholder demand letter and considering appropriate action that the Company should undertake.


ITEM 2. MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

This section and other parts of this Form 10-Q contain forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as “anticipates,” “expects,” “believes,” “plans,” “predicts,” and similar terms. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance and the Company’s actual results could differ materially from the results described in or implied by these forward-looking statements as a result of various factors, including those discussed in this report and under the heading “Risk Factors” in our most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K. The following discussion should be read in conjunction with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2010 (the “2010 Form 10-K”) filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) and the condensed consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included elsewhere in this Form 10-Q.. The Company assumes no obligation to revise or update any forward-looking statements for any reason, except as required by law.

Overview

We are engaged in the production and sales of fruit juice concentrates (including fruit purees, concentrated fruit purees and concentrated fruit juices), fruit beverages (including fruit juice beverages and fruit cider beverages), and other fruit related products (including organic and non-organic fresh fruits, fruit seeds and fruit aroma) in and from the PRC.  We believe that we are currently one of the few companies able to produce specialty fruit juices on a large scale in the PRC and we believe we are a leading specialty fruit juice producer in the PRC.

Our fruit juice concentrates include apple, pear and kiwifruit concentrates. We sell our fruit juice concentrates to domestic customers and export directly or via distributors. We estimate 23% and 13% of our sales in the three months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, were generated from markets other than the PRC, and 31% and 30% of our sales in the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, were generated from markets other than the PRC.   Since we sell to distributors in the PRC and therefore are not certain exactly where our exported fruit juice concentrated products are ultimately sold, we estimate that our main export markets are the United States, the European Union, South Korea, Russia and the Middle East.  We sell our Hedetang and Qian Mei Duo branded fruit beverages domestically primarily to supermarkets in the PRC.  We sell our other fruit related products to domestic customers.   Sales of our fruit concentrates, fruit beverages and other fruit related products represented approximately 53%, 40%, and 7% of our revenue, respectively, for the six months ended June 30, 2011, compared to approximately 58%, 25% and 17%, respectively, for the same period of 2010.
 
Specialty fruit juices, or small breed fruit juice, are juices squeezed from fruits that are grown in relatively small quantities such as kiwifruit juice, mulberry juice, and pomegranate juice, and juices with small output due to various factors including technical challenges in the production process even though the fruits from which the juices are made are grown in large quantities and commonly available, such as pear. Our specialty juice beverage offering includes kiwifruit juice, pear juice and mulberry juice.

We operate four manufacturing factories in the PRC. Two of these factories are located in Shaanxi Province and the other two are located in Liaoning Province.  All concentrated juice products are manufactured using the same type of production line with slight variations in processing methods.  To take advantage of economies of scale and to enhance our production efficiency, each of our manufacturing facilities focuses on producing single fruit-based concentrates and beverages according to the proximity of such manufacturing facility to the supply center of that fruit. Our kiwifruit processing facility is located in Zhouzhi County, Shaanxi Province, which has the largest planting area of apples and kiwifruit in China. Our pear processing facility is also located in Shaanxi Province, which is the main pear producing province in China. We have two apple processing facilities in Liaoning Province, a region that abounds with high acidity apples.  We believe that these regions will provide adequate supply of raw materials for our production needs in the foreseeable future.


Our business is highly seasonal and can be greatly affected by weather because of the seasonal nature in the growing and harvesting of fruits and vegetables.  Our core products are apple, pear and kiwifruit juice concentrates, which are produced from July or August to April of the following year.  The squeezing season for (i) apples is from August to January or February; (ii) pears is from July or August until April of the next year; and (iii) kiwifruit is from September through December.  Typically, a substantial portion of our revenues is earned during our first and fourth quarters.  To minimize the seasonality of our business, we make continued efforts to identify new products with harvesting seasons complementary to our current product mix, such as pomegranate and persimmon.  Our goal is to lengthen our squeezing season, thus increasing our annual production of fruit juice concentrates and fruit beverages.  Unlike fruit juice concentrates, which can only be produced during the squeezing season, fruit beverages are made out of fruit juice concentrates and can be produced and sold in all seasons.

We currently market our brand named fruit beverages in only certain regions of the PRC. We plan to expand the market presence of our beverages over a broader geographic area in the PRC. In particular, we plan to expand our glass bottle production line to produce higher margin portable fruit juice beverages targeting consumers in more populated Chinese cities. In the fourth quarter of 2010, our design team developed new glass bottle packaging for our fruit beverages. In the first quarter of 2011, we added pear juice and apple juice to our product portfolio. We also introduced another new fruit beverage brand, Qian Mei Duo TM (which means “More fiber, better for you” in English), targeted at one of China’s strongest consumer demographics, 18 to 29 years old Chinese women.  We believe that Qian Mei Duo’s market niche and value to health conscious consumers is its high fiber content, which boasts more than 7.5 grams per 250 ml single serve tetra pack.  There are four different kinds of flavors under this brand, including apple, mulberry, kiwifruit and pomegranate. The Company contracted Sanmenxia Prima Cider juice Co., Ltd. in Sanmenxia City, Henan Province, to blend and package the product line for the tetra pack of 250 ml of Qian Mei Duo products. Besides Qian Mei Duo products, we currently produce six flavors of fruit beverages in 280 ml glass bottles and 500 ml glass bottles, including apple juice, pear juice, kiwifruit juice, mulberry juice, kiwifruit cider and mulberry cider, and we also produce beverages in 500 ml PET bottles, which include flavors of pomegranate, apple, kiwifruit and mulberry.  We started making shipments of juices with the new packaging and Qian Mei Duo products in Xi’an on January 28, 2011. In February 2011. we forecasted that the revenue generated from Qian Mei Duo would be $9 million in 2011 based on our past sales experience and market condition by then. The forecasted revenue was from the sales of tetra pack and plastic bottles. However, revenue generated from Qian Mei Duo products for the six months ended June 30, 2011 did not meet our expectations based on our market research conducted in January 2011. In addition, due to the recent negative impact of the wide spread reporting of a toxic plasticizer found in certain food products in Taiwan, in the second quarter of 2011, we decided to cancel our plan to produce Qian Mei Duo products in plastic bottle packs and only continue to produce Qian Mei Duo products in tetra packs. The cancellation of the plan to produce Qian Mei Duo products in plastic bottles negatively affected our revenue forecast for our Qian Mei Duo product. The Company is actively negotiating with other distributors to try to further expand its distribution channels in a wider geographic coverage in China in near future to increase its fruit juice beverages sales.
  
In January 2010, we engaged a beverage distributor in Beijing to focus on the sales and marketing of our fruit juice beverages to food and beverage wholesalers and retailers in the Beijing area. In the first quarter of 2011, we renewed our contract with this distributor and we also increased the number of distributors in the Beijing area. We currently sell our fruit beverages through distributors to over 100 retail stores mainly in Shaanxi Province and the Beijing area. Our retail stores include Wal-Mart stores in Xi’an and Beijing, and Renrenle supermarkets, Lotus supermarkets and Vanguard supermarkets in Xi’an. We plan to expand our domestic geographic coverage for our beverage sales in the near future. In the second quarter of 2011, we reduced the retail price of most of our beverages by an average of 56% to increase our competitiveness in this industry.
 
Fresh fruits are the primary raw materials needed for the production of our products. We purchase raw materials from local markets and fruit growers that deliver directly to our plants.   Our raw material supply chain is highly fragmented and raw fruit prices are highly volatile in China.   In addition to raw materials, we purchase various ingredients and packaging materials such as sweeteners, glass and plastic bottles, cans and packing barrels. We generally purchase our materials or supplies from multiple suppliers.  We are not dependent on any one supplier or group of suppliers.


We believe that continuous investment in research and development is a key component to being a leader in fruit juice concentrate and fruit beverage quality.  As of June 30, 2011, we had an internal research and development team of approximately 43 employees, and we retain external experts and research institutions for additional consultation when necessary. In the first quarter of 2011, we entered into three contracts with an outside research institute to research and develop new products. The term of each of these contracts is from January 2011 to January 2013 with an aggregate monthly payment of RMB 299,990, or $46,413, based on the exchange rate as of June 30, 2011.  Our research and development effort emphasizes the design and development of our processing technology with the goal of decreasing processing costs, optimizing our production capabilities and maintaining product quality. We intend to continue to invest in research and development to respond to and anticipate customer needs. In the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, our research and development expenses were $274,708 and $545,333, respectively.

On August 30, 2010, we closed the public offering of 5,181,285 shares of our Common Stock at a price of $5.00 per share for approximately $25.9 million. We received an aggregate of approximately $24 million as net proceeds after deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and offering expenses. We plan to use the proceeds from this offering primarily in the improvement and development of our Huludao Wonder factory.

Second Quarter of Fiscal 2011 Highlights

·  
Revenue decreased to $12.2 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2011, a decrease of $1.2 million, or 9.0%, compared to $13.4 million for the second quarter of 2010.
·  
Gross profit margin decreased by 28.2% to 34.1% for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 from 47.5% for the same quarter of fiscal 2010.
·  
Operating expenses as a percentage of revenue increased by 48.5% to 14.7% for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 from 9.9% for the same quarter of fiscal 2010 primarily due to the decrease in revenue.
·  
Income from operations decreased by $2.6 million, or 52%, to $2.4 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 from $5.0 million for the same quarter of fiscal 2010 due to the decrease in gross margin.

Net income attributable to the Company decreased $3.3 million, or 68.8%, to $1.5 million for the second quarter of fiscal 2011 as compared with $4.8 million for the same quarter of fiscal 2010.

The highlights above are intended to identify some of our more significant events and transactions during the quarter ended June 30, 2011.  These highlights are not intended to be a full discussion of our operating results for this quarter.  These highlights should be read in conjunction with the following discussion and with our unaudited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto accompanying this Quarterly Report.

Other Recent Developments

Board Approval of a Stock Incentive Plan

On July 11, 2011, our Board of Directors (the “Board”) unanimously adopted, subject to shareholder approval, a Stock Incentive Plan (the “Plan”). The purpose of the Plan is to provide an additional inducement for selected employees, consultants and non-employee directors who provide services to the Company, to reward such selected individuals by providing an opportunity to acquire incentive awards, and to provide a means through which we may attract able persons to enter the employment of or engagement with the Company.  Up to 1,000,000 shares of Stock (subject to adjustment in the event of Stock splits and other similar events) may be issued pursuant to awards granted under the Plan. The full text of the Plan appears as Exhibit 1 to the Proxy Statement that we filed with the Security Exchange Commission on July 22, 2011. Approval of the proposal adopting the Plan requires the affirmative vote of a majority of the shares represented at the shareholders’ meeting on August 18, 2011 and entitled to vote on that proposal.


Entry into Indemnification Agreements

On July 11, 2011, pursuant to the approval of our Board of Directors, we entered into an indemnification agreement (each an “Indemnification Agreement” and collectively the “Indemnification Agreements”) with each of our directors and the chief financial offer, including Yongke Xue, Spring Liu, Xiaoqin Yan, Guolin Wang, John W. Smagula and Norman Ko (each an “Indemnitee”). Under each Indemnification Agreement, we agreed to indemnify each Indemnittee against liability arising out of the individual’s performance of his duties to the Company. The Indemnification Agreement provides indemnification in addition to the indemnification provided by our By-laws, Articles of Incorporation and applicable law. Among other things, the Indemnification Agreement indemnifies each director and officer for certain expenses (including attorneys’ fees), judgments, fines and settlement amounts actually and reasonably incurred by him in any action or proceeding, including any action by or in the right of the Company arising out of his service to the Company or to any other entity to which he provides services at the Company’s request. In addition, we agree to advance expenses he may spend as a result of any proceeding against him as to which he could be indemnified.

Entry into a Letter of Intent regarding the Suizhong Project

On July 15, 2011, the Company entered into a Letter of Intent with the People’s Government of Suizhong County, Liaoning Province, to establish a fruit and vegetable industry chain and further processing demonstration zone in Suizhong County, Liaoning Province (the “Suizhong project”).

The Suizhong project may include one or more of the following:  the construction and operation of fruit juice production lines, a vegetable and fruit flash freeze facility, a refrigeration storage facility and warehouse, a world class food safety testing center, a fruit and vegetable modern supply chain and e-commerce platform, a fruit and vegetable finished products processing center and exhibition center, etc. The implementation of the project is subject to further feasibility study, including an environmental study, government approval of the project (based on the feasibility study), a successful bid to obtain land required for the project, the Company's ability to fund the project based on the size and scope of the project as determined through the feasibility study and the entry into definitive agreements among the parties involved in the projects.

Upon entry into the Letter of Intent, the Company intends to conduct a detailed and comprehensive feasibility study of the Suizhou project with a qualified independent project appraiser. The scope of the Suizhong project and the investment amount are subject to change based on the feasibility study.  Upon successful completion of the feasibility study and assuming the Company is satisfied with the result of the feasibility study, the Company intends to submit the feasibility study and a detailed project proposal to the relevant government authorities for approval. If the government approves the Company’s project proposal, the parties will proceed with negotiation of the detailed terms of the project and the implementation of the Suizhou project is subject to the parties’ entry into definitive agreements for the project. The Company currently expects that it will take three to six months to complete the feasibility study, the detailed project proposal and to obtain the government’s decision on the project.

Amendment to the Company’s Bylaws
 
On July 11, 2011 the Board of Directors of the Company approved and adopted an amendment to the Article VII of the Company's Bylaws regarding indemnification of the Company's directors and officers to (a) eliminate the prohibition against a person covered by Article VII (a "Covered Person") seeking a judicial determination as to the availability of indemnification as to him or her, and (b) clarify that Article VII of the Bylaws is not intended to be the exclusive means to provide indemnification to a Covered Person and that the Company intends to indemnify each Covered Person to the fullest extent permitted under applicable law.  A complete copy of our Bylaws, as amended, is filed as Exhibit 3.1 to this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.
 
 
Amendment to the Company’s Related Party Policy
 
On July 11, 2011, the Board of Directors of the Company approved the amendment to the Company’s Related Party Transaction Policy so that the definitions of related party and related party transactions under the Related Party Transaction Policy are consistent with the rules governing the approval and/or disclosure of related party transactions promulgated under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the relevant Nasdaq Stock Market Rules.
 
Catalogue of Industry Structure Adjustment for 2011

On March 27, 2011, the National Development and Reform Commission and the relevant departments of the State Council of the PRC amended the Catalogue of Industry Structure Adjustment issued in 2005 and released the Catalogue of Industry Structure Adjustment for 2011 (the “Report”), which was effective on June 1, 2011.  In the Report, concentrated apple juice business is classified in the category of Restricted Industry, which means that the government may restrict the expansion of this industry by, among other things, putting limitations on the increase in production capacity, increasing the product quality standard and reducing government financial support, etc. We expect the restrictions under the New Catalogue will reduce government financial support of concentrated apple juice businesses and have a negative impact on the future expansion and development of our concentrated apple juice segment.

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2011 was $12.2 million, a decrease of $1.2 million, or 8.9%, when compared to $13.4 million for the same sales period of the prior year. This decrease was primarily due to a decrease in sales of concentrated kiwifruit juice and kiwifruit puree and other products.

Sales from apple related products increased $1.3 million, or 109.9%, to $2.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011, compared to $1.1 million for the same period of 2010, primarily due to an increase in the unit price of concentrated apple juice in the second quarter of 2011, which was partially offset by a decrease in the quantity sold.  We experienced a decrease in orders for our concentrated fruit juice from our customers in the second quarter of 2011. Based on the feedback from our customers, we believe that the decrease was partially attributable to the negative impact of a report published by a short seller of the Company’s stock identified as “Absaroka Capital” on June 1, 2011, which contained false allegations and accusations against the Company. We believe that this report had seriously damaged the reputation and credibility of the Company among some of our customers, which in turn negatively impacted our business.


Sales from concentrated kiwifruit juice and kiwifruit puree were $1.7 million for the second quarter of 2011, a decrease of $2.2 million, or 56.5%, from $3.9 million in the same quarter of 2010, due to a decrease in quantity sold and also unit price.  We did not have enough inventory to sell in the second quarter of 2011 due to limited production as a result of shortage of raw materials. Sales of concentrated pear juice increased to $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2011, an increase of $0.2 million, or 14.2%, from $1.7 million in the same quarter of 2010, primarily due to an increase in the unit price of concentrated pear juice in the second quarter of 2011, which was partially offset by a decrease in the quantity sold.
 
Revenue from our fruit juice beverages in the PRC increased to $5.4 million, an increase of $0.6 million, or 12.0%, compared to $4.9 million for the same period of fiscal 2010, due to an increase of product offering in our product portfolio and an increase in market demand for fruit juice beverages in the PRC.

Revenue from our other products of $0.8 million in the second quarter of 2011 was mainly from sales of fructose, whereas the revenue from our other products of $1.8 million in the second quarter of 2010 was mainly from sales of concentrated turnjujube juice, which was a one-time order. Turnjujube juice is used to produce Chinese medicines. We did not receive any orders for turnjubjube juice from customers after the third quarter of 2010.
 
Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was $31.6 million, an increase of $0.5 million, or 1.6%, when compared to $31.1 million for the same sales period of the prior year. This increase was primarily due to an increase in sales of fruit juice beverages and concentrated apple juice.  In addition, our revenue increased by $1.7 million, or 9.6% in the first quarter of 2011, when compared to $17.8 million for the same period of the prior year. This increase was primarily due to an increase in sales of concentrated kiwifruit juice as a result of an increase in production amount of concentrated kiwifruit puree in the first quarter of 2011 compared with the same quarter of the previous year and an increase in revenue from fruit juice beverages. The increase in revenue in the first quarter of 2011 was partially offset by a decrease in revenue in the second quarter of 2011 compared to the previous year, as discussed previously.

Sales from apple related products increased $0.4 million, or 7.8%, to $6.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, compared to $5.6 million for the same period of 2010. Sales of concentrated pear juice increased to $5.9 million in the six months ended June 30, 2011, an increase of $88 thousand, or 1.5%, from $5.8 million in the same period of 2010. The increase in revenue from apple related products and concentrated pear juice was primarily due to an increase in the unit price of concentrated apple juice and concentrated pear juice in the six months ended June 30, 2011 compared to the same period of last year.

Sales of concentrated kiwi juice and kiwi puree decreased to $4.7 million in the six months ended June 30, 2011, a decrease of $1.9 million, or 28.7%, from $6.6 million in the same period of 2010 due to the reason that we discussed previously.

Revenue from our fresh fruits and vegetables in the PRC decreased to $1.5 million, a decrease of $2.1 million, or 59.1%, compared to $3.6 million for the same period of fiscal 2010, primarily due to a decrease in selling volume of fresh fruits coupled with a decrease in unit price of fresh fruits in the first quarter of 2011 as compared to the same period of last fiscal year. As we foresaw that the market price of fresh fruits would fall in the first quarter of 2011 due to large inventory built by the fruit vendors in the fourth quarter of 2010, we reduced our purchased amount of fresh fruits from the market to control our risk in the fourth quarter of 2010.  Our sales volume for the six ended June 30, 2011 decreased as a result of a decrease in inventory compared with the corresponding period of last year ago due to reduced purchase of fresh fruits from the suppliers.
 
Revenue from our fruit juice beverages in the PRC for the six months ended June 30, 2011 increased to $12.7 million, an increase of $5.0 million, or 65.2%, compared to $7.7 million for the same period of fiscal 2010, primarily due to an increase of product offering in our product portfolio and an increase in market demand for fruit juice beverages in the PRC, which was partially offset by a decrease in unit price of our fruit juice beverages in the second quarter of 2011.  As Chinese per capita fruit juice consumption is lower compared with the world’s average, and as the middle class expands and increases its wealth, we believe that there is great domestic market potential for our fruit juice beverages.

The consolidated gross profit for the three months ended June 30, 2011 was $4.2 million, a decrease of $2.2 million, or 34.5%, compared to $6.4 million for the same period of 2010, primarily due to the decrease in gross margin. Gross margin decreased to 34.1%, a decrease of 28.2% from 47.5% for the three months ended June 30, 2010.

The consolidated gross profit margin for the three months ended June 30, 2011 was 34.1%, a decrease of 28.2%, compared to 47.5% for the same period of 2010. The decrease in consolidated gross margin in the three months ended June 30, 2011 was primarily due to a decrease in gross margin of concentrated kiwifruit juice and kiwifruit puree fruit beverages and other products, which was offset by an increase in gross margin of concentrated apple juice and apple aroma and concentrated pear juice.

The gross profit margin of concentrated apple juice and apple aroma increased by 27.6% to 25.4% for the three months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to 19.9% for the same period of 2010, primarily due to an increase in the unit price of concentrated apple juice and apple aroma in the international market in the second quarter of 2011 compared with the same quarter of last year.
 

The gross profit margin of concentrated kiwifruit juice and kiwifruit puree was 55.0% for the three months ended June 30, 2011, a decrease of 19.1%, compared to 68.0% for the same quarter of last year, which was due to an increase in the general price of fresh kiwifruit and a decrease in the unit price of concentrated kiwifruit juice and kiwifruit puree in the market. The gross profit margin of concentrated pear juice was 42.6% for the three months ended June 30, 2011, representing an increase of 13.0% as compared to the same period of 2010. The increase in the gross profit margin of concentrated pear juice was primarily due to an increase in the price of concentrated pear juice during the second quarter of 2011, as a result of an increase in demand for our products in the market.

The gross profit margin of our fruit juice beverages decreased to 30.7%, a decrease of 25.5% for the three months ended June 30, 2011 from 41.2% for the same period of 2010.  The decrease in gross margin of our beverages was mainly due to a decrease in the unit price of our fruit juice beverages in the second quarter of 2011. In the second quarter of 2011, we reduced the retail price of most of our beverages to increase our competitiveness in this industry.

The gross profit margin of other products in the second quarter of 2011 was mainly for fructose, which was 18.6%. The gross margin of other products in the second quarter of 2010 was mainly for our new product, turnjujube juice, which was 45.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2010. We believe that we are one of the few companies that produce turnjujube juice and its concentrate at a pharmaceutical grade for use in medicine production, which enjoys a higher margin compared with the industry average. We did not receive any orders for turnjubjube juice from customers after the third quarter of 2010.  The Company does not expect any sales in turnjujube juice in large quantity in the near future based on the current market condition.

Consolidated gross margin decreased by 7.1% for the six months ended June 30, 2011, from 43.5% to 40.4%, compared to that for the same period of fiscal 2010. Gross margin in the six months ended June 30, 2011 was $12.8 million, a decrease of $0.7 million, or 5.5%, compared to $13.5 million for the same period of fiscal 2010. The decrease in gross profit margin as a percentage of revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was primarily due to a decrease in the gross margins of concentrated kiwifruit juice and kiwifruit puree, concentrated pear juice, other products and fresh fruits, which was partially offset by an increase in the gross margin of concentrated apple juice and apple aroma and fruit beverages.

The gross profit margin of concentrated apple juice and apple aroma increased by 42.3% to 27.9% for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to 19.6% for the same period of 2010, which was due to an increase in unit price of concentrated apple juice in the international market, which was partially offset by an increase in the price of fresh apples.

The gross profit margin of concentrated kiwifruit juice and kiwifruit puree decreased by 19.5% to 53.8% for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to 66.8% for the same period of 2010, which was due to an increase in the general price of fresh kiwifruit and a decrease in the unit price of concentrated kiwifruit juice and kiwifruit puree in the market.

The gross profit margin of concentrated pear juice was 34.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2011, a decrease of 10.9% as compared to 38.5% for the same period of 2010. The decrease in the gross profit margin of concentrated pear juice was primarily due to an increase in the price of fresh pear, which was partially offset by an increase in the selling price of concentrated pear juice in 2011.

The gross profit margin of our beverages increased by 11.6% for the six months ended June 30, 2011 as compared to the same period of last fiscal year. The increase in the gross margin of fruit beverages was attributable to the higher unit price of our new beverages introduced into the PRC market in the first quarter of 2011, which was partially offset by a decrease in the selling price of all of our beverages in the second quarter of 2011.  In the second quarter of 2011, we decreased the selling price of our beverages by an average of 56% as compared to the price in the first quarter of 2011 to further enhance our product competitiveness.

The gross profit margin of fresh fruits and vegetables decreased by 4.5% for the six months ended June 30, 2011 as compared to that of the same period of 2010, primarily due to an increase in the price we paid for higher quality fruit that we sold in the domestic PRC.

Our operating expenses consist of general and administrative expenses, selling expenses and research and development expenses. Operating expenses increased by 35.1% to $1.8 million and by 16.9% to $3.2 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, from $1.3 million and $2.7 million for the corresponding periods in fiscal 2010, respectively. The increase in operating expenses was mainly due to an increase in general and administrative expenses and selling expenses, which was partially offset by a decrease in research and development expenses.

General and administrative expenses increased by $0.2 million, or 19.0%, to $1.0 million and by $0.2 million, or 13.0%, to $1.8 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, from $0.8 million and $1.6 million for the same periods of fiscal 2010, respectively.  The increase in general and administrative expenses was mainly due to an increase in legal fees related with our current pending litigations, which was partially offset by a reversal of accrued employee welfare of $242,150 in the second quarter of 2011 as a result of a change in circumstances.

Selling expenses increased by $0.4 million, or 203.3%, to $0.6 million and by $0.5 million, or 90.5%, to $1.1 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, from $0.2 million and $0.6 million for the same periods of fiscal year 2010, respectively. This was mainly due to an increase in payroll and related expenses as the result of a larger headcount.

Research and development expenses decreased by $0.2 million, or 48.3%, to $0.1 million and by $0.2 million, or 49.5%, to $0.3 million for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, from $0.3 million and $0.5 million for the same periods of fiscal 2010. We entered into two contracts with an outside research institute to research and develop new products in fiscal year 2008.  These two contracts were from August 2008 to December 2010, with a monthly payment of RMB 600,000, or $92,829 based on the exchange rate as of June 30, 2011. In the first quarter of 2011, we entered into three contracts with outside research institutes to research and develop new products. The terms of these contracts were from January 2011 to January 2013 with a monthly payment of RMB 299,990, or $46,413 based on the exchange rate as of June 30, 2011. The decrease in monthly payment under the current contracts compared with the contracts that we entered in fiscal year 2008 was mainly due to a decrease in the number of research and development projects.


Income from Operations

Income from operations decreased to $2.4 million, a decrease of $2.6 million, or 52.0%, for the three month ended June 30, 2011 from $5.0 million for the same period of 2010.  As a percentage of revenue, income from operations was approximately 19.4% for the three months ended June 30, 2011 compared to 37.5% for the same period of 2010.  The decrease in income from operations was mainly due to the decrease in gross margin.

In the six months ended June 30, 2011, income from operations decreased by $1.2 million, or 11.1%, to $9.6 million from $10.8 million for the corresponding period in 2010. As a percentage of net sales, income from operations was approximately 30.3% for the six months ended June 30, 2011, a decrease of 12.4% as compared to 34.6% for the corresponding period in fiscal 2010. The decrease in the percentage of net sales was due to a decrease in gross margin and an increase in operating expenses, as previously discussed.
 
Other Income (Expense), Net

Other income, net was $21 thousand for the three months ended June 30, 2011, a decrease of $2.0 million as compared to other income, net of $2.0 million for the same period of 2010, primarily due to a decrease in subsidy income of $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2011. In the second quarter of 2010, we were notified by the Shaanxi government that RMB 15 million, or approximately $2.2 million, had been appropriated to support the research and development activities.   The RMB 15 million subsidy was the second of such subsidies granted to us under the Key Industry Program. Of this amount, we have received $1.8 million in cash as of June 31, 2011. In the second quarter of 2011 we received a government subsidy in the aggregate amount of $89 thousands, which were VAT rebates on the export to foreign countries in the second quarter of 2011.

Other income, net was $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011, an increase of $0.7 million as compared to other expense, net of $0.2 million in the same period of 2010, primarily due to a decrease of $2.1 million in fair value of warrant liabilities, which was offset by a decrease in subsidy income of $1.7 million. In the six months ended June 30, 2011 we received subsidies of $0.6 million, which were VAT rebates on the export to foreign countries in the six months ended June 30, 2011.

Income Tax

Our provision for income taxes was $0.8 million and $2.7 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, an decrease of $1.1 million, or 57.9%, and $0.7 million, or 20.6%, from $1.9 million and $3.4 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively.  The decrease in tax provision was due to a decrease in income before taxes.  Our effective tax rate was 32% and 27% for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively. Our effective tax rate was 27% (excluding the change in fair value of warrant liabilities) for the three and six months ended June 30, 2010, respectively.

Noncontrolling Interests

As of June 30, 2011, SkyPeople (China) held a 91.15% interest in Shaanxi Qiyiwangguo and Pacific held a 99.78% interest in SkyPeople (China). Net income attributable to noncontrolling interests, which is deducted from our net income, was $0.1 million and $0.5 million for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, compared to $0.3 million and $0.7 million for the same period of 2010, respectively.  The decrease in the net income attributable to noncontrolling interests was mainly due to the decrease in the net income generated by SkyPeople (China).

Net Income
 
Net income attributable to the Company was $1.5 million and $6.8 for the three and six months ended June 30, 2011, respectively, a decrease of $3.3 million and an increase of $0.4 million, respectively, from $4.8 million and $6.4 million for the same period of 2009, respectively, due to the factors described above.

 
Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2011, we had cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $76.9 million, an increase of $27.0 million, or 54.1%, from $49.9 million as of December 31, 2010, primarily due to a cash inflow of $27.5 million from operating cash flow. We believe that projected cash flows from operations, anticipated cash receipts, cash on hand, and trade credit will provide the necessary capital to meet our projected operating cash requirements for at least the next 12 months, which does not take into account any potential expenditures related to the potential expansion of our current production capacity. Our restricted cash of $793,233 was used as collateral to obtain a short-term notes payable.

Our working capital has historically been generated from our operating cash flows, advances from our customers and loans from bank facilities. Our working capital was $84.8 million as of June 30, 2011, an increase of $6.2 million, or 7.9%, compared to working capital of $78.6 million as of December 31, 2010, mainly due to an increase in cash and a decrease in accrued expenses and other payables and income tax payable. Other assets increased by $4.4 million, or 258.8%, from $1.7 million on December 31, 2010 to $6.1 million on June 30, 2011, mainly due to a deposit of $1.2 million paid for the construction project in Huludao Wonder factory, a deposit of $1.7 million for the construction project and $2.9 million for the machinery and equipment for the concentrated pear juice line in the Jingyang factory. The most significant sources of increase in working capital for the six months ended June 30, 2011 were $27.5 million from operating activities. The most significant use of working capital during the six months ended June 30, 2011 was the prepayment for other assets, mainly for construction in progress and equipment and machinery, of $4.7 million and payment of $6.4 million for income tax.

Our capital expenditures in cash were $134,415 and $679,246 for the six months ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively.  Historically, we financed our capital expenditures and other operating expenses through operating cash flows and bank loans.  As of June 30 2011, the balance of short-term bank loans totaled RMB 84.0 million, or $13.0 million based on the exchange rate as of June 30, 2011, with interest rates ranging from 4.80% to 10.727% per annum. Of this amount, RMB 18.0 million, or $2.8 million, was secured by the guarantee provided by Shaanxi Boai Pharmaceutical & Scientific Development Co. Ltd. and the rest of the loans were collateralized by land usage rights and buildings and were due for repayment from June 2010 to December 2011. The balance of the short-term notes payable as of December 31, 2010 was RMB 3.3 million, or $505,581 based on the exchange rate of December 31, 2010.
