NOTES TO UNAUDITED CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

NOTE 1 – ORGANIZATION

 

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of Joway Health Industries Group Inc. (referred to herein as “Joway Health”), its subsidiaries, and variable interest entities (“VIEs”) where Joway Health is deemed the primary beneficiary. Joway Health, its subsidiaries and VIEs are collectively referred to herein as the “Company”, “we” and “us”.

 

Joway Health (formerly G2 Ventures, Inc.) was originally incorporated under the laws of the State of Texas on March 21, 2003. On September 21, 2010, Joway Health entered into a Share Exchange Agreement (the “Share Exchange”) with the sole stockholder of Dynamic Elite International Limited. As a result of the Share Exchange, Dynamic Elite became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Joway Health and the stockholders of Dynamic Elite acquired approximately 76.08% of the issued and outstanding stock of Joway Health. The share exchange transaction resulted in the shareholders of Dynamic Elite acquiring a majority voting interest in Joway Health. Generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America require that the company whose shareholders retain the majority interest in the combined business be treated as the acquirer for accounting purposes. The reverse acquisition process utilizes the capital structure of Joway Health and the assets and liabilities of Dynamic Elite recorded at historical cost. On December 22, 2010, Joway Health changed its jurisdiction of incorporation from the State of Texas to the State of Nevada.

 

Dynamic Elite International Limited (referred to herein as “Dynamic Elite”) was incorporated under the laws of the British Virgin Islands on June 2, 2010 as a limited liability company (a BVI company). Dynamic Elite engages in manufacturing and distributing tourmaline products in China. Its wholly owned subsidiary, Tianjin Junhe Management Consulting Co., Ltd. was incorporated on September 15, 2010 in Tianjin, People’s Republic of China (“PRC”). Other than the equity interest in Junhe Consulting, Dynamic Elite does not own any assets or conduct any operations.

 

Tianjin Junhe Management Consulting Co., Ltd. (referred to herein as “Junhe Consulting”) conducts its business through Tianjin Joway Shengshi Group Co., Ltd. that is consolidated as a variable interest entity.

 

Tianjin Joway Shengshi Group Co., Ltd. (referred to herein as “Joway Shengshi”) was incorporated in PRC on May 17, 2007. Joway Shengshi is currently owned 99% by Jinghe Zhang, the Company’s current CEO and President and 1% by Song Baogang. Joway Shengshi engages in manufacturing and distributing tourmaline products in China. Shenyang Joway Electronic Technology Co., Ltd., Tianjin Joway Decoration Engineering Co., Ltd. and Tianjin Oriental Shengtang Trading Import & Export Trading Co., Ltd are subsidiaries of Joway Shengshi.

 

Shenyang Joway Electronic Technology Co., Ltd. (referred to herein as “Joway Technology”) was originally named Liaoning Joway Technology Engineering Co., Ltd. which was incorporated on March 28, 2007 in PRC. The name was changed on June 22, 2011. It engages in the distribution of Tourmaline Activated Water Machines and Tourmaline Wellness Houses. Prior to July 25, 2010, Joway Shengshi owned 90.91% of Joway Technology. Joway Shengshi entered into a share acquisition agreement with Jingyun Chen, another stockholder of Joway Technology on July 25, 2010 to acquire the remaining 9.09% of the share of Joway Technology. As a result of the share acquisition, Joway Technology became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Joway Shengshi.

 

Tianjin Joway Decoration Engineering Co., Ltd. (referred to herein as “Joway Decoration”) was incorporated on April 22, 2009 in PRC. It engages in the distribution of Tourmaline Activated Water Machines, Tourmaline Wellness House for family use and Tourmaline Wellness House materials. Prior to July 9, 2010, Joway Shengshi owned 90% of Joway Decoration. Joway Shengshi entered into a share acquisition agreement with Jingyun Chen, another stockholder of Joway Decoration on July 9, 2010 to acquire the remaining 10% of the shares of Joway Decoration. As a result of the share acquisition, Joway Decoration became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Joway Shengshi. Jingyun Chen is currently the General Manager of Joway Decoration.

Tianjin Oriental Shengtang Import & Export Trading Co., Ltd (referred to herein as “Shengtang Trading”) was incorporated on September 18, 2009 in the PRC. It engages in purchasing raw materials which it sells to other companies of the group. Prior to July 28, 2010, Joway Shengshi owned 95% of Shengtang Trading. Joway Shengshi entered into a share acquisition agreement with Wang Aiying, another stockholder of Shengtang Trading on July 28, 2010 to acquire the remaining 5% of the shares of Shengtang Trading. As a result of the share acquisition, Shengtang Trading became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Joway Shengshi.

On September 16, 2010, prior to the share exchange, Junhe Consulting entered into a series of contractual agreements (the “Contractual Agreements”) with Joway Shengshi and Joway Shengshi’s owners. The following is a brief description of the Contractual Agreements entered into between Junhe Consulting and Joway Shengshi or Joway Shengshi’s owners:

 

1. Consulting Services Agreement. Pursuant to the consulting services agreement between Junhe Consulting and Joway Shengshi, Junhe Consulting has the right to advise, consult, manage and operate Joway Shengshi, and collect and own all of the net profits of the Operating Entities.

 

2. Operating Agreement. Under the operating agreement between Junhe Consulting and Joway Shengshi, Junhe Consulting has the right to recommend director candidates and appoint the senior executives of Joway Shengshi, approve any transactions that may materially affect the assets, liabilities, rights or operations of Joway Shengshi, and guarantee the contractual performance by Joway Shengshi of any agreements with third parties, in exchange for a pledge by Joway Shengshi of its accounts receivable and assets.

 

3. Voting Rights Proxy Agreement. Under the voting rights proxy agreement between Joway Shengshi’s owners and Junhe Consulting, the owners of Joway Shengshi have vested their collective voting control over Joway Shengshi to Junhe Consulting and will only transfer their respective equity interests in Joway Shengshi to Junhe Consulting or its designee.

 

4. Option Agreement. Under the option agreement between Joway Shengshi’s owners and Junhe Consulting, the owners of Joway Shengshi have granted Junhe Consulting the irrevocable right and option to acquire all of their equity interests in Joway Shengshi.

 

5. Equity Pledge Agreement. Under the equity pledge agreement between Joway Shengshi’s owners and Junhe Consulting, the owners of Joway Shengshi have pledged all of their rights, titles and interests in Joway Shengshi to Junhe Consulting to guarantee Joway Shengshi’s performance of its obligations under the Consulting Services Agreement.

 

As a result of the Contractual Agreements, Joway Shengshi is effectively a variable interest entity of Junhe Consulting. Accordingly, the Company through its wholly-owned subsidiary Junhe Consulting, consolidates Joway Shengshi’s results of operation, assets and liabilities in its financial statements.

 

In connection with the Share Exchange and as consideration for entering into the VIE Agreements the shareholders of Joway Shengshi, entered into a Call Option Agreement with the sole shareholder of Crystal Globe (the controlling shareholder of Dynamic Elite), pursuant to which the shareholders of Joway Shengshi have the right to purchase up to 100% of the shares of Crystal Globe at an aggregate price equal to $20,000 over the next three years. The Call Option vests as to 34% of the shares of Crystal Globe on April 2, 2011 and as to 33% on April 2 of 2012 and 2013. As a result, the shareholders of Joway Shengshi are now the indirect beneficial owners of the shares of the Company held by Crystal Globe.

 

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

Basis of Presentation

 

The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“US GAAP”). Accordingly, they do not include all of the information and the footnotes required by generally accepted accounting principles for complete financial statements. The Company’s functional currency is the Chinese Renminbi (“RMB”); however, the accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements have been translated and presented in United States Dollars (“USD”). All significant inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated. The consolidated financial statements include all adjustments that, in the opinion of management, are necessary to make the financial statements not misleading.

 

Operating results for the nine month period ended September 30, 2015 are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be expected for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2015. The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Company’s form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2014 which was filed on March 31, 2015.

 

Use of Estimates

 

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Management makes these estimates using the best information available at the time the estimates are made. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

 9 

 

 

Basis of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the Company and its wholly owned subsidiaries and controlled VIEs. All significant inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in the consolidation.

 

Pursuant to Accounting Standards Codification Topic 810 “Consolidation” (“ASC 810”), the Company is required to include in its consolidated financial statements the financial statements of its variable interest entities (“VIEs”). ASC 810 requires a VIE to be consolidated by a company if that company is subject to a majority of the risk of loss for the VIE or is entitled to receive a majority of the VIE’s residual returns. VIEs are those entities in which a company, through contractual arrangements, bears the risk of, and enjoys the rewards normally associated with ownership of the entity, and therefore the company is the primary beneficiary of the entity.

 

Based on the various Contractual Agreements, the Company is able to exercise control over the VIEs, and to obtain the full economic benefits. The terms of the exclusive option agreement are currently exercisable and legally enforceable under PRC laws and regulations. The minimum amount of consideration permitted by the applicable PRC law to exercise the option does not represent a financial barrier or disincentive for the Company to exercise its rights under the exclusive option agreement. A simple majority vote of the Company’s board of directors is required to pass a resolution to exercise its rights under the exclusive option agreement, for which consent of the shareholder of VIEs is not required. Therefore, this gives the Company the power to direct the activities that most significantly impact VIEs’ economic performance. The Company’s ability to exercise effective control, together with the consulting service agreements and the equity pledge agreements, give the Company the rights to receive substantially all of the economic benefits from VIEs in consideration for the services provided by its wholly owned subsidiaries in China. Accordingly, as the primary beneficiary of VIEs and in accordance with U.S. GAAP, Joway Shengshi, Joway Technology, Joway Decoration, and Shengtang Trading, as VIEs of Junhe Consulting, has been consolidated in the Company’s financial statements. Sales from Joway Shengshi, Joway Technology, Joway Decoration, and Shengtang Trading are included in the Company’s total sales, their incomes or losses from operations are consolidated with the Company’s, and the Company’s net income or loss includes net income or loss from Joway Shengshi, Joway Technology, Joway Decoration, and Shengtang Trading.

 

Foreign Currency Translation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements are presented in USD. The functional currency of the Company is RMB. The consolidated financial statements are translated into United States dollars from RMB at period-end exchange rates as to assets and liabilities and average exchange rates as to revenues and expenses. Equity accounts are translated at their historical exchange rates when the equity transactions occurred. The resulting transaction adjustments are recorded as a component of stockholders’ equity. Gains and losses from foreign currency transactions are included in net income.

 

   For the nine months ended
September 30,
   For the year ended December 31, 
   2015   2014   2014 
Period ended RMB: USD Exchange rate   6.3538    6.156    6.1535 
Average RMB: USD Exchange rate   6.1606    6.15023    6.14821 

  

The RMB is not freely convertible into foreign currency and all foreign exchange transactions must take place through authorized institutions. No representation is made that the RMB amounts could have been, or could be, converted into USD at the rates used in translation.

 

 10 

 

 

Foreign currency translation adjustments have been reported as comprehensive income in the consolidated financial statements and totaled ($309,078) and $1,715 for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and ($228,781) and ($60,720) for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

 

Other Comprehensive Income

 

Other comprehensive income is defined as the change in equity during the period from transactions and other events, excluding the changes resulting from investments by owners and distributions to owners, and is not included in the computation of income tax expense or benefit. Accumulated other comprehensive income represents the accumulated balance of foreign currency translation adjustments.

 

Concentrations of Credit Risk

 

The Company's operations are carried out in the PRC. Accordingly, the Company's business, financial condition and results of operations may be influenced by the political, economic and legal environment in the PRC, and by the general state of the PRC's economy. The Company's operations in the PRC are subject to specific considerations and significant risks not typically associated with companies in North America. The Company's results may be adversely affected by changes in governmental policies with respect to laws and regulations, anti-inflationary measures, currency conversion and remittance abroad, and rates and methods of taxation, among other things. Financial instruments which potentially subject the Company to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash. Substantially all of the Company’s cash is maintained with state-owned banks within the PRC, and no deposits are covered by insurance. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts and believes it is not exposed to any risks on its cash in bank accounts.

 

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

 

Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 820 establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy, which prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

 

  Level 1—defined as observable inputs such as quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;
     
  Level 2—defined as inputs other than quoted prices in active markets that are either directly or indirectly observable; and
     
  Level 3—defined as unobservable inputs in which little or no market data exists, therefore requiring an entity to develop its own assumptions.

 

The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for cash, accounts receivable, other receivable, accounts payable, other payable, and amounts due from related parties generally approximate their fair market values based on the short-term maturity of these instruments. ASC 825-10 “Financial Instruments” allows entities to voluntarily choose to measure certain financial assets and liabilities at fair value (fair value option). The fair value option may be elected on an instrument-by-instrument basis and is irrevocable, unless a new election date occurs. If the fair value option is elected for an instrument, unrealized gains and losses for that instrument should be reported in earnings at each subsequent reporting date. The Company did not elect to apply the fair value option to any outstanding instruments.

 

Cash

 

For financial reporting purposes, the Company considers all highly liquid financial instruments with an original maturity of three months or less to be cash equivalents. The Company had no cash equivalents at any point during the period of the financial statements presented. Balances at financial institutions or state-owned banks within the PRC are not covered by insurance. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts and believes it is not exposed to any significant risks on its cash in bank accounts.

 

 11 

 

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are presented net of an allowance for doubtful accounts. The Company maintains allowances for doubtful accounts for estimated losses. On a periodic basis, the Company reviews the composition of the accounts receivable and analyzes historical bad debts, customer concentrations, customer credit worthiness, current economic trends and changes in customer payment patterns to evaluate the adequacy of these allowances. Accounts are written off after exhaustive efforts at collection. As of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, based on a review of its outstanding balances, the Company allowance for doubtful accounts had a zero balance, respectively.

 

Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost, as determined by the specific identification method on contract level (for each individual contract, inventories cost flow are determined by weighted-average method), or the net realizable value, which is determined on selling prices less any further costs expected to be incurred for completion and disposal. The Company regularly evaluates the composition of its inventories to identify slow-moving and obsolete inventories to determine whether a valuation allowance is required. As of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the Company recorded $137,535 and $142,012 for inventory valuation allowance, respectively.

 

Advances to Suppliers

 

Advances to suppliers represent the cash paid in advance for inventory items or construction in progress. The advance payments are meant to ensure preferential pricing and delivery. The amounts advanced under such arrangements totaled $104,147 and $135,883 as of September 30, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively.

 

Long-term Investments

 

Investments in which the Company has a 20% to 50% interest are accounted for by the equity method. Under the equity method the carrying value of the investment is adjusted for the Company’s proportionate share of the investee’s income or loss.

 

Investments in which the Company has less than a 20% interest are accounted for by the cost method. Under the cost method, investments are carried at cost and income is recorded when dividends are received from those investments.

 

Property, Plant, and Equipment

 

Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation, and include expenditures that substantially increase the useful lives of existing assets.

 

Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Estimated useful lives are as follows:

 

Building     20 years  
Operating Equipment     10 years  
Office furniture and equipment     3 or 5 years  
Vehicles     10 years  

 

 12 

 

 

The cost and related accumulated depreciation of assets sold or otherwise retired are eliminated from the accounts, and any gain or loss is included in the consolidated statements of operations. Maintenance, repairs and minor renewals are charged directly to expenses as incurred. Significant renewals and betterment to buildings and equipment are capitalized. Leasehold improvements are depreciated over the lesser of the useful life or the life of the lease.

 

Intangible Assets

 

Intangible assets mainly consist of land use rights. All land located in the PRC is owned by the government and cannot be sold to any individual or company. The land use rights granted to the Company are being amortized using the straight-line method over the lease term of 50 years. Other intangible assets are software programs that are amortized over their estimated useful life of 10 years.

 

Impairment of Long-lived Assets

 

Long-lived assets of the Company are reviewed annually as to whether their carrying value has become impaired, pursuant to the guidelines established in FASB ASC 360. The Company considers assets to be impaired if the carrying value exceeds the future projected cash flows from the related operations. The Company also re-evaluates the periods of depreciation and amortization to determine whether subsequent events and circumstances warrant revised estimates of useful lives. The Company did not record any impairment loss for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

The Company recognizes revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred or services have been rendered, the purchase price is fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured.

 

With respect to sales of product to both franchisee and non-franchisee customers, the Company prepares product shipments upon the receipt of a customer’s purchase order. Sales prices are based on fixed price lists that are different depending on whether the price list is for a franchisee customer or for non-franchisee customers. The Company recognizes revenue when the product is shipped. The Company does not sell product to any customers with a right of return as defined in ASC 605-15-25-4. Sales are presented net of value added tax (VAT).

 

For Tourmaline Wellness House sales, the Company recognizes revenue under the completed contract method. Customers contact the Company with requests to construct a Wellness House. The Company and the customer enter into a contract, at which time the customer pays a deposit of at least one-half of the sales price. A contract is considered completed when all significant costs have been incurred and the project has been accepted by the customer. The contracts have a place for the customer to sign indicating their acceptance of the completed Wellness House. At this time the customer will also pay any remaining balance on the contract. The Company recognizes the full contract revenue at this point. Contract costs consist primarily of materials and labor costs. The construction period of a Wellness House generally does not exceed five days.

 

Shipping Costs

 

Shipping costs are included in selling expenses and totaled $17,704 and $7,516 for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively, and $63,611 and $16,100 for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company is governed by the Income Tax Law and associated legislations of the PRC. The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with FASB ASC 740 “Income Taxes”, which is an asset and liability approach that requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in the Company's financial statements or tax returns. ASC 740 additionally requires the establishment of a valuation allowance to reflect the likelihood of realization of deferred tax assets. Realization of deferred tax assets is dependent upon future earnings, if any, of which the timing and amount are uncertain.

 

 13 

 

 

According to ASC 740, the evaluation of a tax position is a two-step process. The first step is to determine whether it is more likely than not that a tax position will be sustained upon examination, including the resolution of any related appeals or litigation based on the technical merits of that position. The second step is to measure a tax position that meets the more-likely-than-not threshold to determine the amount of benefit to be recognized in the financial statements. A tax position is measured at the largest amount of benefit that is greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement. Tax positions that previously failed to meet the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold should be recognized in the first subsequent period in which the threshold is met. Previously recognized tax positions that no longer meet the more-likely-than-not criteria should be de-recognized in the first subsequent financial reporting period in which the threshold is no longer met. ASC 740 also provides guidance on de-recognition, classification, interest and penalties, accounting in interim periods, disclosures, and transition.

 

Basic and Diluted Earnings per Share

 

The Company reports earnings per share in accordance with FASB ASC 260 “Earnings per share”. The Company’s basic earnings per share are computed using the weighted average number of shares outstanding for the periods presented. Diluted earnings per share are computed based on the assumption that any dilutive options or warrants were converted or exercised. Dilution is computed by applying the treasury stock method. Under this method, the Company’s outstanding stock warrants are assumed to be exercised, and funds thus obtained were assumed to be used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period. There were no dilutive instruments outstanding during the nine months periods ended September 30, 2015 and 2014.

 

Segment Information

 

The Company follows FASB ASC 280-Segment Reporting, which requires that companies disclose segment data based on how management makes decision about allocating resources to segments and evaluating their performance.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and the year ended December 31, 2014, management has determined that the Company is operating in three reportable business segments, (1) Healthcare Knit Goods Series, (2) Daily Healthcare and Personal Care Series, and (3) Wellness House and Activated Water Machine Series. The Company's reportable segments are strategic business units that offer different products. They are managed separately based on the fundamental differences in their operations.

 

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In May 2014, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-09, Summary and Amendments That Create Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606) and Other Assets and Deferred Costs–Contracts with Customers (Subtopic 340-40). The amendments in ASU 2014-09 supersede most current revenue recognition requirements. The core principal of the new guidance is that an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. The Company can apply the amendments using one of the following two methods: (i) retrospectively to each prior reporting period presented, or (ii) retrospectively with the cumulative effect of initially applying the amendments recognized at the date of initial application. In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-4, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Deferral of the Effective Date, which deferred the effective date of ASU 2014-09 by one year for all entities. Accordingly, ASU 2014-09 is effective for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within that reporting period. Early application is permitted only for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within that reporting period. The Company is currently assessing the timing of its adoption and the impact of adopting this guidance on its consolidated financial statements and the implementation approach to be used.

 

In April 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-03, Interest - Imputation of Interest (Subtopic 835-30): Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs. The amendments in ASU 2015-03 require that debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability be presented in the balance sheet as a direct deduction from the carrying amount of that debt liability, consistent with debt discounts. ASU 2015-03 is effective for annual and interim periods beginning after December 15, 2015, with early adoption permitted on a retrospective basis. The Company elected to adopt ASU 2015-03 early, effective in the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

 

In September 2015, the FASB issued ASU No. 2015-16, Business Combinations (Topic 805): Simplifying the Accounting for Measurement-Period Adjustments. ASU 2015-16 requires that an acquirer recognize adjustments to provisional amounts that are identified during the measurement period in the reporting period in which the adjustment amounts are determined. Entities are currently required to retrospectively apply adjustments made to provisional amounts recognized in a business combination. ASU 2015-16 is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2015, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The guidance is to be applied prospectively to measurement period adjustments that occur after the effective date of the guidance with earlier application permitted for financial statements that have not been issued. The Company elected to adopt ASU 2015-16 early, effective in the nine months ended September 30, 2015.

NOTE 11 - FRANCHISE REVENUES

 

The Company enters into franchising agreements to develop retail outlets for the Company's products. The agreements provide that franchisees will sell Company products exclusively at a predetermined retail price. In exchange the Company provides them with geographic exclusivity, discounted products, training and support. The agreements also require franchisees to adhere to certain standards of product merchandising, promotion and presentment. The agreements also prohibit franchisees from selling competitor’s products. The agreements do not require any initial franchise fees from the franchisees, nor do they require the franchisees to pay continuing royalties. The agreements do not require the franchisees to purchase any minimum levels of product, but do require that they make at least one purchase during each year. The Company does not act to manage the franchisees’ levels of product. Franchisees hold periodic conferences, assisted by the Company’s marketing department, to promote product awareness and the introduction of new products. The franchising agreements are generally for terms of three years and are renewable at the mutual agreement of both parties. The franchising agreements are cancelable at the Company’s discretion if franchisees violate the terms of the agreements.

Overview

 

General

 

We develop, manufacture, market, distribute, and sell products, including knit goods, daily healthcare and personal care products, and wellness house and activated water machine products, that are coated, embedded or filled with tourmaline. Most of our products, such as clothing, bedding, and mattresses are purchased as finished products which we then coat and/or infuse with liquid or granular tourmaline using one or more of our manufacturing techniques. We conduct all of our operations in Tianjin City, China and distribute most of our products to more than 100 franchisees in China. Our franchisees, in turn, sell the products to their customers. All of our revenues to date have been generated by sales to customers located in the PRC.

 

 21 

 

 

Beginning in 2009, we began to develop a franchise network to distribute our healthcare knit goods, daily healthcare products and personal care products. Through these franchisees, we were able to significantly increase sales of our healthcare knit goods segment and daily healthcare and personal care segment. In 2010, we began distributing our wellness house and activated water machine products through our franchise network.

 

We are a holding company with no material operations of our own. All of our operations are conducted through Joway Shengshi and its three subsidiaries, Joway Technology, Joway Decoration and Shengtang Trading. Joway Shengshi engages in the manufacture and distribution of tourmaline health-related products such as knit goods, and daily healthcare and personal care products. Joway Technology and Joway Decoration engage in the manufacture and distribution of activated water machines and wellness houses. We utilize our Shengtang Trading subsidiary to purchase raw materials, which are then sold to Joway Shengshi and Joway Decoration.

 

As a holding company, our ability to pay dividends and other cash distributions to our shareholders depends in part upon dividends and other distributions paid to us by our PRC subsidiaries. The amount of dividends paid by our PRC subsidiaries to us primarily depends on the service fees paid to our PRC subsidiaries from Joway Shengshi and its subsidiaries, and, to a lesser degree, our PRC subsidiaries’ retained earnings. Conducting our operations through contractual arrangements with Joway Shengshi and its subsidiaries has a risk that we may lose the power to direct the activities that most significantly affect the economic performance of Joway Shengshi and its subsidiaries, which may result in our being unable to consolidate their financial results with our results and may impair our access to their cash flow from operations and thereby reduce our liquidity.

Income taxes. Our income tax expenses were $13,218 for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, compared to $1,697 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. This increase was due to the increased income of Joway Decoration.

 

Net loss. Our net loss was $511,641 for the nine months ended September 30, 2015, compared to $934,127 for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. The improvement at net loss was mainly due to the increase in sales.

 

Franchising

 

We enter into franchise agreements to develop retail outlets for our products. These agreements provide that franchisees will sell our products exclusively. In exchange, we provide them with geographic exclusivity, discounted products, training, and support. The agreements also require franchisees to adhere to certain standards of product merchandising, promotion, and presentment. The agreements do not require the franchisees to purchase any minimum levels of product, but do require that they make at least one purchase during each year. The agreements are generally for terms of three years and are renewable at the mutual agreement of both parties. The Agreements are cancelable at our discretion if franchisees violate the terms of the agreements.

 

The following is a breakdown of revenue between franchise and non-franchise customers:

 

   For the three months ended September 30,   For the nine months ended September 30, 
   2015   2014   2015   2014

Our cash at December 31, 2014 was $542,672 and increased to $698,542 at September 30, 2015, an increase of $155,870. This increase was mainly provided by our operating activities.

This was primarily due to less loss of $422,486 from our improved operating results, which was offset by more expenditures of $154,011 in inventory.

 

For the nine months ended September 30, 2015, cash was mainly used to cover the loss of $511,641, which were primarily offset by an add-back of $283,868 of depreciation for non-cash expense, the increase in advances from customer of $188,649, the decrease in inventory purchase of $69,768 and the increase in accounts payable of $47,900.

On May 7, 2007, our operating subsidiary, Joway Shengshi entered into an agreement with Shenyang Joway pursuant to which Joway Shengshi and Shenyang Joway agreed to provide each other with interest-free, unsecured advances for working capital. On May 10, 2007, our subsidiary, Joway Technology and Shenyang Joway entered into an agreement pursuant to which Joway Technology and Shenyang Joway agreed to provide each other with interest-free, unsecured advances for working capital. Pursuant to these agreements, Shenyang Joway advanced an aggregate of $791,701 to Joway Shengshi and Joway Technology through December 31, 2010. We repaid $3,780 and $23,647 of these advances for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively. As of September 30, 2015, the total unpaid principal balance due Shenyang Joway for advances was $2,293. Shenyang Joway ceased operations at the end of 2009, although it still exists as a legal entity.

On May 10, 2007, our operating subsidiaries, Joway Shengshi entered into a cash advance agreement with Jinghe Zhang, our President, Chief Executive Officer and director. Pursuant to the agreements, Jinghe Zhang agreed to advance operating capital to Joway Shengshi. These advances are interest free, unsecured and are repayable upon demand. During the period beginning May 17, 2007 (inception of Joway Shengshi) through September 30, 2015, Joway Shengshi received cash advances in the aggregate principal amount of $4,731,168 from Jinghe Zhang. We received $93,736 of advance for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 and repaid $3,275 of advances for the nine months ended September 30, 2014. As of September 30, 2015, the total unpaid principal balance due Jinghe Zhang for advances made to Joway Shengshi was $130,714.

 

The Company has sufficient liquidity from internal and external sources to meet the Company’s operating cash needs over the next 12 months even if Mr. Zhang and Shenyang Joway were to demand immediate repayment of the remaining balance under these loans and no longer wish to provide future loans to any of our operating units.

 

STATUTORY RESERVES

 

Pursuant to the laws and regulations of the PRC, the Company’s PRC subsidiaries are required to allocate a portion of their after-tax income to statutory reserves funds. The minimum statutory reserves allocation is 10% of after-tax income until the reserves reach 50% of the entities’ registered capital or members’ equity. The reserve funds are not transferable to the Company in the form of cash dividends, loans or advances. Thus, the reserve funds are not available for distribution except in liquidation. As of September 30, 2015, the Company had allocated $354,052 to statutory reserves.

 

Off Balance Sheet Items

 

Under SEC regulations, we are required to disclose off-balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, such as changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity, capital expenditures or capital resources that are material to investors. An off-balance sheet arrangement means a transaction, agreement or contractual arrangement to which any entity that is not consolidated with us is a party, under which we have:

 

  any obligation under certain guarantee contracts,

 

  any retained or contingent interest in assets transferred to an unconsolidated entity or similar arrangement that serves as credit, liquidity or market risk support to that entity for such assets,

 

  any obligation under a contract that would be accounted for as a derivative instrument, except that it is both indexed to our stock and classified in shareholder equity in our statement of financial position, and

 

  any obligation arising out of a material variable interest held by us in an unconsolidated entity that provides financing, liquidity, market risk or credit risk support to us, or engages in leasing, hedging or research and development services with us.

 

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements that we are required to disclose pursuant to these regulations. In the ordinary course of business, we enter into operating lease commitments, purchase commitments and other contractual obligations. These transactions are recognized in our financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States.

 

Critical Accounting Policies

 

Management’s discussion and analysis of its financial condition and results of operations are based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Our financial statements reflect the selection and application of accounting policies which require management to make significant estimates and judgments. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We believe that the following reflect the more critical accounting policies that currently affect our financial condition and results of operations.

 

 29 

 

 

Basis of Consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include Joway Health and its wholly owned subsidiaries and controlled VIEs. All significant inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in the consolidation.

 

Pursuant to Accounting Standards Codification Topic 810 “Consolidation” (“ASC 810”), the Company is required to include in its consolidated financial statements the financial statements of its variable interest entities (“VIEs”). ASC 810 requires a VIE to be consolidated by a company if that company is subject to a majority of the risk of loss for the VIE or is entitled to receive a majority of the VIE’s residual returns. VIEs are those entities in which a company, through contractual arrangements, bears the risk of, and enjoys the rewards normally associated with ownership of the entity, and therefore the company is the primary beneficiary of the entity.

 

Based on the various Contractual Agreements, we believe we are able to exercise control over the VIEs, and to obtain the full economic benefits. We believe that the terms of the exclusive option agreement are currently exercisable and legally enforceable under PRC laws and regulations. We also believe that the minimum amount of consideration permitted by the applicable PRC law to exercise the option does not represent a financial barrier or disincentive for us to exercise our rights under the exclusive option agreement. A simple majority vote of our board of directors is required to pass a resolution to exercise our rights under the exclusive option agreement, for which consent of the shareholder of VIEs is not required. Therefore, we believe this gives us the power to direct the activities that most significantly impact VIEs’ economic performance. T We believe that our ability to exercise effective control, together with the consulting service agreements and the equity pledge agreements, give us the rights to receive substantially all of the economic benefits from VIEs in consideration for the services provided by its wholly owned subsidiaries in China. Accordingly, as the primary beneficiary of VIEs and in accordance with U.S. GAAP, Joway Shengshi, Joway Technology, Joway Decoration, and Shengtang Trading, as VIEs of Junhe Consulting, has been consolidated in the Company’s financial statements. Sales from Joway Shengshi, Joway Technology, Joway Decoration, and Shengtang Trading are included in our total sales, their incomes or losses from operations are consolidated with ours, and our net income or loss includes net income or loss from Joway Shengshi, Joway Technology, Joway Decoration, and Shengtang Trading.

 

Revenue Recognition

 

We recognize revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred or services have been rendered, the purchase price is fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured.

 

With respect to sales of product to both franchisee and non-franchisee customers, we prepare product shipment upon the receipt of a customer’s purchase order. Sales prices are based on fixed price lists that are different depending on whether the price list is for franchisee customers or for non-franchisee customers. We recognize revenue when the product is shipped. We do not sell product to any customers with a right of return as defined in ASC 605-15-25-4. Sales are presented net of value added tax (VAT).

 

We recognize revenue on the sale of our wellness houses under the completed contract method. At the time when we enter into a contract with a customer to build a wellness house, the customer pays a deposit of at least one-half of the sales price. We consider the contract to be completed when all significant costs have been incurred and the customer accepts the project in writing by signing in the appropriate place on the contract. At this time the customer will also pay any remaining balance on the contract. We recognize the full contract revenue at this point. Contract costs consist primarily of materials and labor costs. The construction period of a wellness house generally does not exceed five days.

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are carried at net realizable value. We provide reserves for potential credit losses on accounts receivable. Management reviews the composition of the accounts receivable and analyzes historical bad debts, customer concentrations, customers’ credit worthiness, current economic trends, and changes in customer’s payment patterns to evaluate the adequacy of these reserves.

 

Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost, as determined by the specific identification method on contract level (for each individual contract, inventories cost flow is determined by weighted-average method), or the net realizable value, which is determined on selling prices less any further costs expected to be incurred for completion and disposal. Management regularly evaluates the composition of its inventories to identify slow-moving and obsolete inventories to determine whether a valuation allowance is required.

 

Property, Plant, and Equipment

 

Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation, and include expenditures that substantially increase the useful lives of existing assets.

 

Depreciation is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets. Estimated useful lives are as follows:

 

Building  20 years
Operating Equipment  10 years
Office furniture and equipment  3 or 5 years
Vehicles  10 years

 

The cost and related accumulated depreciation of assets sold or otherwise retired are eliminated from the accounts, and any gain or loss is included in the consolidated statements of income and other comprehensive income. Maintenance, repairs and minor renewals are charged directly to expenses as incurred. Significant renewals and betterment to buildings and equipment are capitalized. Leasehold improvements are depreciated over the lesser of the useful life or the life of the lease.

 

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

 

We do not anticipate that the adoption of recently issued accounting pronouncements to have a material effect on our condensed consolidated financial statements.

 

Item 3. Quantitative and Qualitative Disclosures about Market Risk.

 

Not applicable.

 

Item 4. Controls and Procedures.

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our management, under the supervision and with the participation of our Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”), has evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as defined in SEC Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) as of the end of the period covered by this quarterly report. The purpose of this evaluation is to determine if, as of Evaluation Date, our disclosure controls and procedures were operating effectively such that the information, required to be disclosed in our Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) reports (i) was recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in SEC rules and forms, and (ii) was accumulated and communicated to our management, including our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

 

 31 

 

 

Based on their evaluation, our Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer have concluded that, as of September 30, 2015, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective, based on the material weakness described below:

 

We did not have sufficient skilled accounting personnel that are either qualified as Certified Public Accountants in the U.S. or that have received education from U.S. institutions or other educational programs that would provide enough relevant education relating to U.S. GAAP. The Company’s CFO and Financial Manager have worked for U.S. listed companies but have limited experience with U.S. GAAP and are not U.S. Certified Public Accountants. Further, our operating subsidiaries are based in China, and in accordance with PRC laws and regulations, are required to comply with PRC GAAP, rather than U.S. GAAP. Thus, the accounting skills and understanding necessary to fulfill the requirements of U.S. GAAP-based reporting, including the preparation of financial statements and consolidation, are inadequate, and determined to be a material weakness.

 

Remediation Initiative

 

  We have started a training program in the principles and rules of U.S. GAAP, SEC reporting requirements and the application thereof. The program is provided by an independent training institution, for our finance and accounting personnel, including our Chief Financial Officer, Financial Manager and others.

 

  We are in the process of designing a program to provide ongoing company-wide training regarding the Company’s internal controls, with particular emphasis on our finance and accounting staff.

 

  In 2011 we established the position of internal audit manager. From September 2011 to July 2012, we hired an internal audit manager who implemented an internal review process over financial reporting to review all recent accounting pronouncements and to verify that the accounting treatments identified in such report have been fully implemented and confirmed by our internal control department. Currently, we are still in the process of seeking for a proper candidate to perform as our internal audit manager.

 

We believe that the foregoing steps will remediate the significant deficiencies identified above, and we will continue to monitor the effectiveness of these steps and make any changes that our management deems appropriate.

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate. All internal control systems, no matter how well designed, have inherent limitations. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

There were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting for the nine months ended September 30, 2015 that materially affected, or were reasonably likely to materially affect our internal control over financial reporting.
