Item 2.
Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations.
 
 This Form 10−Q contains forward-looking statements. Our actual results could differ materially from those set forth as a result of general economic conditions and changes in the assumptions used in making such forward-looking statements. The following discussion and analysis of financial condition and results of operations relates to the operations and financial condition reported in the financial statements of China Ginseng Holdings Inc. for the periods ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 and should be read in conjunction with such financial statements and related notes included in this report and the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended June 30, 2012. The analysis set forth below is provided pursuant to applicable Securities and Exchange Commission regulations and is not intended to serve as a basis for projections of future events.

Company Overview

Our company, China Ginseng Holdings Inc., was incorporated on June 24, 2004 in the State of Nevada.  The Company conducts business through its four wholly-owned subsidiaries located in China.  We have been granted 20-year land use rights to 3,705 acres of lands by the Chinese government for ginseng planting and we control, through lease, approximately 750 acres of grape vineyards. However, recent harvests of grapes showed poor quality for wine production which indicates that the vineyards are no longer suitable for planting grapes for wine production. Therefore, we have decided not to renew our lease for the vineyards with the Chinese government upon expiration in 2013 and, going forward, we intend to purchase grapes from the open market in order to produce grape juice and wine.
 
Since our inception in 2004, we have been engaged in the business of farming, processing, distribution and marketing of fresh ginseng, dry ginseng, ginseng seeds, and seedlings.   Starting in August 2010, we have gradually shifted the focus of our business from direct sales of ginseng to canned ginseng juice production and wine production.
 
Since we shifted the focus of our business into the ginseng beverage business and the wine business, we have started to store our raw material and sell only a  limited amount of our self-produced ginseng. We also purchase ginseng from outside sources, and then resell it to generate revenue, which sales are based on  orders from the market. However, due to the global recession and local market conditions, demand for ginseng exports declined beginning in 2008, creating a significant oversupply in China. All those factors caused us to have losses in 2009 and 2010. In addition, our new business is in the initial stages, we need to spend capital to promote our new products, and develop our marketing plan. There is no assurance that there will be sufficient demand for our beverages and wine to allow us to operate profitably initially, or at all. We have recurring operating losses and there is substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern. As of December 31, 2012, the cash balance on hand for the Company was $64,782.

In order to meet the challenge, we raised capital to support our operation through a Regulation S private placement and we are recruiting distributors for ginseng beverage and wine products. In addition, we established Hong Kong Huaxia in Hong Kong as a sale company for health product and specialized local goods in March 2012. It was set up as a part of our adjusted marketing strategy so that we can explore the Asia Market through Hong Kong Huaxia, while Jilin Huamei remains focused on domestic sales. The focus of Hong Kong Huaxia is sales of our ginseng juice and wine in the Asia market. It is currently recruiting distributors for the Asia market in addition to its online shopping platform for direct sales of our ginseng juice and wine.

Although, we have generated only limited revenues from our ginseng beverage and wine businesses, we believe there is future potential to do so because (i) the China ginseng market is recovering now; (ii) the demand and the price is in an uptrend due to Chinese government restrictions on the amount of land available for ginseng farming (land under our Company’s control has not been affected by the government restrictions); (iii)  as of the date of this filing, we have already entered into binding agreements with 20  distributors to distribute our  beverage in different cities and 1 distributor to distribute our ginseng beverage in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand; and (iv) we set up Hong Kong Huaxia to promote our products in the Asia Market and initiate online direct sales of our ginseng juice and wine.

As the impact of the shift in the focus of our business away from the ginseng business and into the ginseng beverage business and the wine business is uncertain and the shift represents a material change in our business, our past revenues and other financial results do not provide a meaningful basis for future performance and there is no guarantee that we will be able to attain profitability in the foreseeable future.
  
Our Subsidiaries:

Our business in China is currently conducted through four wholly owned subsidiaries located in China. The current operational status of each of these businesses, as of the date of this filing, is as follows:
 
Yanbian Huaxing Ginseng Industry Co. Limited (“Yanbian Huaxing”) – Ginseng farming and sales
 
 ●
On September 8, 2003, we and Jilin Dunhua Huaxing Ginseng Industry Co, Ltd. (“Dunghua Huaxing ”, a PRC company) jointly and legally established Yanbian Huaxing as a joint venture company, in which we held 25% equity interest and Dunhua Huaxing held 75% equity interest. We received a certificate of approval issued by the competent local approval authority on September 8, 2003 and a business license issued by the competent local registration authority on September 16, 2003. On November 24, 2004, we and Dunhua Huaxing adjusted the registered capital of Yanbian Huaxing and our respective shareholding percentage in Yanbian Huaxing, and, as a result, we then held 55% equity interest in Yanbian Huaxing. Subsequently in August, 2005, we acquired the remaining 45% equity interest from Dunhua Huaxing at a purchase of $164,000, and then we hold 100% equity interest in Yanbian Huaxing and changed Yanbian Huaxing from a joint venture into a wholly foreign owned enterprise (“ WFOE ”). The purchase prices were determined based upon the registered capital of Yanbian Huaxing of $364,000. In October 2005, we increased the registered capital of Yanbian Huaxing by putting in an additional $250,000 in order to meet the requirement for foreign owned enterprise requirement for tax purpose. Now the registered capital of Yanbian Huaxing is $614,000. We have applied with the relevant PRC approval and registration authorities for each of the aforesaid changes and have obtained all applicable approvals and registrations for such changes, including a certificate of approval issued by the local approval authority and a renewed business license issued by the local registration authority certifying Yanbian Huaxing as a WFOE lawfully owned by us. Yanbian Huaxing is operated to plant ginseng and our revenue in the past was mainly from the sales of ginseng produced and sold by Yanbian Huaxing. With the shift of business focus to canned ginseng juice, we have started to reserve the high quality grown ginseng for ginseng beverage production and sold only those not qualified to make ginseng juice. However, due to excessive rain in the year ended June 30, 2011, 90% of our grown ginseng was oxidized and sold to the market. During the year ended June 30, 2012, we were able to reserve 20% of our grown ginseng for ginseng juice production.
 
Jilin Ganzhi Ginseng Products Co. Ltd. (“Jilin Ganzhi”) - Producing Canned Ginseng Juice.
 
 ●
On May 31, 2006, we acquired 100% equity interest in Jilin Ganzhi at a price of $95,691.  We received a certificate of approval issued by the competent local approval authority on May 31, 2006 and a business license issued by the competent local registration authority on June 19, 2006.  Subsequently, on September 26, 2007 and August 31, 2008, we increased Jilin Ganzhi’s registered capital by $50,000 and $20,000, respectively.  Now the registered capital of Jilin Ganzhi is $100,000. We applied with the relevant PRC approval and registration authorities for each of the aforesaid capital increases and have obtained all applicable approvals and registrations for such changes, including a renewed certificate of approval issued by the local approval authority and a renewed business license issued by the local registration authority certifying Jilin Ganzhi as a WFOE lawfully owned by us. Jilin Ganzhi is operated to process ginseng and produce canned ginseng juice. Jilin Ganzhi started production of canned ginseng juice in the three months ended December 31, 2010.

Tonghua Linyuan Grape Planting Co. (“Tonghua Linyuan”) – Growing grapes and producing wine
 
 ●
On January 15, 2008, we acquired 100% equity interest in Tonghua Linyuan from two PRC individual shareholders at a price of $1,000,000.  The price was determined by arm’s-length negotiations based upon the appraised net asset value of Tonghua Linyuan at the time of acquisition which was approximately $1,332,248. We received a certificate of approval issued by the competent local approval authority on January 15, 2008 and a business license issued by the competent local registration authority on April 1, 2008 certifying Tonghua Linyuan as a WFOE lawfully owned by us with  a registered capital of RMB 10,330,000.  However, the WFOE certificate is conditioned on us injecting the registered capital into Tonghua Linyuan on or before June 15, 2012. Because we failed to satisfy this condtion, Tonghua Linyuan lost its status as a WFOE beginning June 15, 2012. Tonghua Linyuan is operated to plant grapes and produce wine.  However, recent harvests from Tonghua Linyuan showed poor quality for wine production, which indicates that the vineyard is no longer suitable to grow grapes for grape juice and wine production. Therefore, we have decided not to renew our lease with the Chinese government when it expires in 2013 and, going forward, we will purchase grapes from the open market.  In addition, Tonghua Linyuan has contracted for the production of wine with a winery producer whereby Tonghua Linyuan provides the producer with grape juice and supplies and producer charges processing fee per bottle. Tonghua Linyuan started wine production through a winery producer in March 2011 and the sale of wine is conducted through Jilin Huamei and Hong Kong Huaxia.
 
Jilin Huamei Beverage Co. Ltd (“Jilin Huamei”) - Marketing of our canned ginseng juice and wine
 
 ●
We incorporated Jilin Huamei as a WFOE on October 17, 2005. We received a certificate of approval issued by the competent local approval authority on October 17, 2005 and a business license issued by the competent local registration authority on October 19, 2005 certifying Jilin Huamei as a WFOE lawfully owned by us. The registered capital of Jilin Huamei is $200,000.  Jilin Huamei operates as a sales department for our canned ginseng juice and wine, which are produced by our other subsidiaries. We plan to recruit one general distributor for our canned ginseng juice and one general distributor for our wine in each big city in China through Jilin Huamei. As of the date of this filing, Jilin Huamei has signed 20 general distributors for our ginseng beverage and one general distributor for our wine, as well as established one sales branch office in Jiangsu Province. We commenced sales of ginseng beverage in October 2010 and Jilin Huamei started generating revenue in November 2010.

Hong Kong Huaxia International Industrial Co., Limited (“Hong Kong Huaxia”) – Sell health and specialized local products
 
Hong Kong Huaxia was incorporated in Hong Kong on March 18, 2012 to sell health and specialized local products and it began operations in April 2012. The registered capital of Hong Kong Huaxia is 1 million Hong Kong dollars (approximately $128,838), 1% of which is payable and paid upon registration. Hong Kong Huaxia is focused on recruiting distributors exporting our ginseng juice products and wine to other countries in Southeast Asia. As a part of our adjusted marketing strategy, Hong Kong Huaxia is focused on sales of our ginseng juice and wine in the Asia Market while Jinlin Huamei is focused on domestic sales. In addition, Hong Kong Huaxia sells other famous local products from Northeast China such as ginseng, deer antler velvet, deer products, black fungus, mushroom, pine seeds, pine flower powder. It is currently recruiting distributors for the Asia Market in addition to its online shopping platform for direct sales of our ginseng juice and wine.
 
Our Products:

Previously, through Yanbian Huaxing, we focused on the farming, processing, distribution and marketing of Asian and American Ginseng and related byproducts in the following varieties:

 
o
Fresh Ginseng:  For pharmaceutical, health supplement, cosmetic industry and fresh consumption.
 
 
o
Dry Ginseng:  Dried form for pharmaceutical and health supplement consumption.

 
o
Ginseng Seeds:  Selling of ginseng seeds.

 
o
Ginseng Seedling:  Selling of ginseng seedling.
 
 
5

 
 
Ginseng's growing cycle is from April to September, six months a year.  Normally we sow the seed in April and harvest in September and October. Ginseng seeds are obtained after the blossom in autumn. The seeds can be sowed in September or the next spring. It takes 10 days to germinate and the growing cycle for seedlings is 10 days. For every hectare cultivated, we can harvest approximately 18 to 20 kg ginseng. As of September 30, 2012, the planting area for ginseng is 111 acres.
 
Since August 2010, we have gradually shifted our business focus from direct sales of ginseng and ginseng byproducts to production and sales of canned ginseng juice and wine.

Through Jilin Ganzhi, we are producing two types of canned ginseng juice:

 
o
Ganzhi Asian Ginseng Beverage

 
o
Ganzhi American Ginseng Beverage
  
In addition to canned ginseng juice, we have added wine production to our business focus.  We have already grown and crushed the grapes from our vineyards and reserved the juices.  We started wine production through a winery producer in March 2011 and sales in April 2011. We contracted for the production of the wine.
 
We are producing and selling three kinds of wine:

 
o
Bingqing Ice Wine

 
o
Pearl in the Snow (Red)
 
 
o
Linyuan Hong Wine (red wine)
 
New Focus of Our Business

Canned Ginseng Juice

Currently, there are about 10 kinds of ginseng drinks on the market; all of them are imported from Korea.  The price range for those products is 4 –30 RMB per can (about USD $0.60-$ 4.51).
 
The most important component of ginseng is ginsenoside. Based upon reading our competitors’ product labels, all of their ginseng drinks are blended after extracting ginsenosides through chemical methods. The chemical extraction of ginsenosides will cause damage to its nutritional components. Our technology is different from the traditional method used by our competitors.  We squeeze out the natural juice from fresh ginseng, use that as our main ingredient and then add in natural extracts like xylitol, citric acid and steviosides as subsidiary ingredients. We have farming technicians periodically inspect farmers to ensure they follow our growing guidelines to control the quality of the fresh ginseng.  We use low residue pesticide and biodegradable fertilizer for ginseng planting. We also use xylitol, which does not cause a sour taste, instead of sugar to lower the calorie content of our drinks.  
 
 Squeezing is not commonly used in canned ginseng juice because it requires fresh ginseng, the preservation of which is very difficult. However, our drink formula uses refrigerated ginseng and therefore we are able to preserve its freshness and nutrition in our final products. The drink formula for our ginseng beverages is a registered patent approved by the Chinese government, patent number ZL 03111397.6.  This patent was issued on January 23, 2008 and expires 20 years after issuance.

To produce canned ginseng juice, we store our fresh ginseng in refrigerated warehouse space. We are currently renting a refrigerated warehouse (-20 C degree) to store all fresh ginseng inventory necessary for production of the ginseng beverages.   Monthly rent for refrigerated warehouse is RMB 4,500 (about USD $676.86). We commenced production in August 2010 and sales in October 2010. However, as we are in the initial stage of the ginseng beverage business, we cannot assure the demands for our ginseng beverage will be high enough to make our business profitable in the short term and there is no guarantee that we will be able to generate the revenue from ginseng beverage business.

We own the production plant.  The plant is certified by the Chinese government as a Good Manufacturing Process facility, which is required for our production of these products.  Good Manufacturing Process standards cover organization and personnel, building and facilities, equipment, materials, hygiene and sanitation, validation, documentation, production management, quality management, production distribution and recall, complaints and adverse reactions report, and self-inspections.

Wine

Our grapes grow on 750 acres of land leased from a group of individual farmers, paying approximately $37.50 per acre a year for 15 years.  This lease expires on December 31, 2014.   However, recent harvests from our vineyard showed poor quality indicating the vineyard is long longer suitable for the production of wine. We decide to abandon the growing and harvesting of grapes and will now purchase grapes in the open market to produce wine.  We started production of wine in March 2011 and sales in April 2011. Through our subsidiary Tonghua Linyuan, we have a written production agreement with Tonghua Jinyuanshan Winery (“Jinyuanshan Winery”) to produce Pearl in Snow Wine and Ice Wine for us from May 20, 2012 to May 19, 2017. Under the terms of the agreement, we provide Jinyuanshan Winery with grape juice, bottling supplies and packaging supplies, and Jinyuanshan Winery produces and bottles the wine with a charge of approximately $0.16-0.24 per bottle (approximately $0.16 a bottle for processing red wine,  and approximately $0.24 per bottle for processing ice wine). We, through our subsidiary Tonghua Linyuan, have another written production agreement with Jinyuanshan Winery to produce. Linyuan Hong Red for us at a charge of approximately $0.16 per bottle from May 20, 2012 to May 19, 2017. The agreement contains similar terms as the production written agreement we have with Jinyuanshan Wineary for producing Pearl in Snow Wine and Ice Wine.

Distribution

We intend to recruit one general distributor for our products of ginseng beverage and wine in every city in China.  The city level distributor can recruit the second level distributors.  In addition to recruiting general distributors, in some major cities, Jilin Huamei will establish sale branch offices to facilitate the local sales. Our direct sales will target customers of high end retailers such as supermarkets, pharmacies, hotels, gift shops, entertainment centers, tourists attractions, airport and high speed trains, etc.
 
We started negotiating distribution and sales agreements with potential general distributors. Currently, we have signed 20 general distributors for our ginseng beverage, 1 distributor to distribute our ginseng beverage in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and 1 general distributor for our wine, as well as established one sales branch office in Jiangsu Province.

As a part of our adjusted marketing strategy, we set up Hong Kong Huaxia as a Hong Kong subsidiary which is focused on sales and distribution of our products and famous local goods to the Asia Market outside China in addition to its online shopping platform for direct sales of our ginseng juice and wine.
 
Competitive environment
 
The market for ginseng products and wine is highly competitive. Our operations may be affected by technological advances by competitors, industry consolidation, patents granted to competitors, competitive combination products, new products offered by our competitors, as well as new information provided by other marketed products and/or other post-market studies.
 
Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

The discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based upon our financial statements which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. The preparation of these financial statements requires us to make estimates and judgments that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities. On an on-going basis, we evaluate our estimates including the allowance for doubtful accounts, the salability and recoverability of inventory, income taxes and contingencies. We base our estimates on historical experience and on other assumptions that we believes to be reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form our basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions.

In addition, past financial results are not indicative of future performance due to our emphasis on further commercializing ginseng juice with our crops as raw materials and broadening our offing, such as wine sale. Furthermore, we cannot predict what future laws and regulations might be passed that could have a material effect on our results of operations. We assess the impact of significant changes in laws and regulations on a regular basis and update the assumptions and estimates used to prepare our financial statements when we deem it necessary.

We assess the impact of significant changes in laws and regulations on a regular basis and update the assumptions and estimates used to prepare our financial statements when we deem it necessary.

Consolidated Financial Statements
 
The financial statements include the accounts and activities of China Ginseng Holdings, Inc. and its wholly-owned subsidiaries: Yanbian Huaxing Ginseng Co. Limited, Jilin Huamei Beverage Co. Limited, Jilin Ganzhi Ginseng Products Co. Limited, Tonghua Linyuan Grape Planting Co. Limited and Hong Kong Huaxia International Industrial, Co. Limited.  All intercompany transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Inventory

Our inventory consists of fresh and dried ginseng as well as crushed grapes and is stated at the lower of cost or market value.  Cost is determined using the First-In, First-Out (FIFO) Method.

Ginseng Crops and Grape Crops

The Company uses the full absorption costing method to value its ginseng crops.  Included in crop costs are seeds, labor, applicable overhead including depreciation, and supplies. Common costs are allocated in each period based upon the total number of hectors under cultivation during the period.
  
The carrying value of the ginseng crops is reviewed on a regular basis for any impairment in value using management’s best estimate as to expect future market values, yields and costs to harvest.  Costs accumulated on the acres expected to be harvested during the next fiscal year have been classified as a current asset.

In August 2012, a typhoon struck the Mudanjiang Ginseng farm destroying approximately 111,839 square meters of planted ginseng having an approximate value of RMB 5,817,110 (US $920,840). This loss was charged to operations during the first quarter of 2013.
 
Revenue Recognition

Through the year ended June 30, 2011, the Company’s primary source of revenue was the sale of fresh and dried Ginseng. During the year ended June 30, 2012, the Company reserved and processed its grown Ginseng suitable for ginseng juice production and sold the rest of its grown ginseng. In addition, the Company purchased Ginseng from farmers for its resale business. Ginseng is planted in the Spring (March) and Fall (September) of each year and is generally harvested in September. It usually takes 6 years for a Ginseng root to mature, although, senior maturity can be 8 years.

Harvested ginseng can be sold in two ways: (1) fresh ginseng which can be sold immediately and stored in refrigerators for up to 3 years and (2) dried ginseng which is processed and dried via sunlight and steam machines. Drying is a two month process.  Dried ginseng can be stored up to 5 years. The Company has focused on selling dried ginseng as it is more profitable than selling fresh ginseng. The Company has also been storing fresh Ginseng for future juice manufacturing paid upon delivery as payment in advance.  The balance is billed after the customer incurs a lengthy inspection process which can take up to 60 days.  Until the customer finalizes its inspection and deems the shipment acceptable, the shipment is still the property of the Company.  Upon customer completion of inspection and approval, the sale is then recognized and the balance of the invoice price is wired to the Company. For smaller sales, customers pick up the Ginseng from the Company, pay in cash at time of pick up and receive an invoice with appropriate sales tax applied and a cash acknowledgement. On these orders, revenue is recognized upon shipment/payment.
 
The Company has entered into several distribution agreements to sell Ginseng juice and wine.  In accordance with these agreements, the distributors will advance funds to the Company for orders to be placed.  Upon the placement of orders by the distributor, the Company will ship the product to the distributor and title will pass to the distributor.  In relation to distribution agreements for Ginseng beverages, it is the Company’s policy, commencing with the initiation of the distribution agreements, to allow the distributors to return all unsold products at the end of six months from the shipment date should the product not be sold and the product has not exceeded the expiration date.  The Company is establishing history as to the quantity of the Ginseng which has been returned in order to determine if a reserve for returns and allowances is necessary.  To date, returns have been minimal. For each reporting period, the Company ascertains from each distributor its’ current on hand quantity and assesses the situation in order to establish a return allowance, if necessary.  As of December 31, and June 30, 2012, all distribution sales had been sold to third parties.

Accounts Receivable and Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

Accounts receivable consist principally of trade receivables. When ginseng is shipped to a customer, the customer pays 20%-30% of the invoice and is entitled to an inspection process which could take up to 60 days. Upon completion of the inspection and approval process, the customer notifies the company, and a sale is recorded. The allowance for doubtful accounts represents management’s estimate of the amount of probable credit losses, determined by reviewing past due balances and other information.  Account balances are written off against the allowance if management determines the receivable is uncollectible. The Company’s standard terms stipulate payment in 60 days and consider a receivable to be uncollectible after appropriate collection efforts have been exhausted.
 
Vineyard Development Costs

Vineyard development costs consist primarily of the costs of the vines and expenditures related to labor and materials to prepare the land and construct vine trellises. The costs are capitalized within Property and Equipment. When the vineyard becomes commercially productive, annual amortization is recognized using the straight-line method over the estimated economic useful life of the vineyard, which is estimated to be 40 years.
 
In June 2012, the Company decided to abandon the growing and harvesting of grapes due to the poor quality of recent harvests indicating the vineyard land was no longer suitable for the production of wine or grape juice. Accordingly, the Company has abandoned the vineyard and recorded a charge to operations of $872,568. The Company has also decided not to renew its leases with the Chinese Government.  Going forward, the Company will purchase grapes in the open market to produce wine and grape juice.
 
Going Concern

As indicated in the accompanying financial statements, the Company had net losses of $1,650,062 and $834,202 for the six months ended December 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and an accumulated deficit of $7,411,471 as of December 31, 2012 and there are existing uncertain conditions the Company foresees relating to its ability to obtain working capital and operate successfully. Management’s plans include the raising of capital through the debt and equity markets to fund future operations and the generating of revenue through its businesses. Failure to raise adequate capital and generate adequate sales revenues could result in the Company having to curtail or cease operations.
 
 
9

 
 
Additionally, even if the Company does raise sufficient capital to support its operating expenses and generate adequate revenues, there can be no assurances that the revenues will be sufficient to enable it to develop business to a level where it will generate profits and cash flows from operations. These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. However, the accompanying financial statements have been prepared on a going concern basis, which contemplates the realization of assets and satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. These financial statements do not include any adjustments relating to the recovery of the recorded assets or the classification of the liabilities that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements
 
In May 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued an accounting standard update to provide guidance on achieving a consistent definition of and common requirements for measurement of and disclosure concerning fair value as between U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards. This accounting standard update is effective for the Company beginning in the third quarter of fiscal 2012. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this accounting standard update on its Consolidated Financial Statements but does not expect it will have a material impact.
  
In June 2011, the FASB issued an accounting standard update to provide guidance on increasing the prominence of items reported in other comprehensive income. This accounting standard update eliminates the option to present components of other comprehensive income as part of the statement of equity and requires that the total of comprehensive income, the components of net income, and the components of other comprehensive income be presented either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. It is also required to present on the face of the financial statements reclassification adjustments for items that are reclassified from other comprehensive income to net income in the statement(s) where the components of net income and the components of other comprehensive income are presented. This accounting standard update is effective for the Company beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2013.
  
In August 2011, the FASB approved a revised accounting standard update intended to simplify how an entity tests goodwill for impairment. The amendment will allow an entity to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is necessary to perform the two-step quantitative goodwill impairment test. An entity no longer will be required to calculate the fair value of a reporting unit unless the entity determines, based on a qualitative assessment, that it is more likely than not that its fair value is less than its carrying amount. This accounting standard update will be effective for the Company beginning in the first quarter of fiscal 2013 and early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this accounting standard update on its Consolidated Financial Statements.

Net revenues are comprised of sales of self-production ginseng, purchased ginseng, ginseng beverage and Aoweisi cosmetic product during the three months ended December 31, 2012. Our total revenue increased from $1,352,050 for the three months ended December 31, 2011 to $1,688,947 for the three months ended December 31, 2012, an increase of $336,897 or 24.92%. The increase was primarily attributable to the sales of ginseng and Aoweisi cosmetic product.

We generated $1,068,037, or 63% of sales from our self-production ginseng for the three months ended December 31, 2012, an increase of $210,122, or 24%. The increase was primarily due to increased market price of ginseng. The market price increased by $29/kg, or 172% compared to the same period in 2011 due to nation-wide inflation in the three months ended December 31, 2012. Meanwhile, the quantity of our self-production ginseng decreased by 28,012kg during the three months ended December 31, 2012, compared to the same period in 2011. The decrease in quantity was caused by a typhoon that struck the Mudanjiang Ginseng farm destroying approximately 111,839 square meters of planted ginseng with an approximate value of RMB 5,817,110 (US$ 920,840) in August, 2012. As a result, we were only able to harvest the ginseng planted at Yanbian Huaxing farm during the three months ended December 31, 2012.

For the three months ended December 31, 2012, approximately $542,197 or 32% of our revenue was from resale of ginseng purchased from the market and sold to major customers, which represents a 16% increase compared to the same period in 2011. The increase was mainly caused by increased orders from one of our customers, Heilong Jiang Yikangyuan, which resulted in that we sold additional 4,835kg of purchased ginseng for the three months ended December 31, 2012 as compared to the same period in 2011. 

In addition, for the three months ended December 31, 2012, approximately $10,883 or 1% of our revenue was generated from the sales of our ginseng beverage, a decrease of $11,899, or 52% compared to three months ended December 31, 2011.  The decrease was mainly caused by the negative impact on our harvest by the typhoon struck in August 2012 and our limited funds for marketing and sales promotion. The management anticipates this decrease will be temporary.  In order to solve the fund issue for marketing and sales promotion, the Company plans to raise the capital in the following ways: 1) loan from shareholders or other individuals 2) apply an agriculture grant of Jilin province which is a governmental reward to support qualified agriculture companies. The amount of grant will be 5,000,000( $800,000 )RMB. However, there is no assurance that we will successfully obtain the agriculture grant or obtain enough capital from shareholders or other individuals and the management is continuing exploring any possible way to raise the capital for our marketing and development.

The remaining $67,830 of our revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was generated from resales of Aoweisi cosmetic products, which were sold through Hong Kong Huaxia based on consumers’ special orders. We do not expect this to be a major source of our revenue in the future.

Our total cost of goods sold increased from $1,031,186 for the three months ended December 31, 2011 to $1,439,961 for the three months ended December 31, 2012, an increase of $408,775 or 39.64%. The primary reasons for the increase were the cost of our self-production ginseng and new costs attributable to the Aoweisi cosmetic products.

Our cost of purchasing ginseng for resale decreased from $464,132 in the three months ended December 31, 2011 to $452,805 in the three months ended December 31, 2012.  This was  primarily because  we purchased the ginseng from the market at lower prices compared to the prices we paid in  the comparative period of 2011.  We believe that this was due to the fact that the quality of the ginseng on the market was negatively impacted by the typhoon that occurred in August 2012.

The cost of our own farming ginseng for sale increased $415,750, or 74.94% in the three months ended December 31, 2012, compared to the three months ended December 31, 2011. The increase was caused by the increased costs associated with the harvest of ginseng in 2012 and the overall inflation in labor, seeds and other production costs.

We had a new cost of $12,201 from Aoweisi cosmetic product sales for the three months ended December 31, 2012, which did not occur in the three months ended December 31, 2011.
 
Cost of Sales as a percentage of revenue increased 8.99% in the three months ended December 31, 2012 as compared to the three months ended December 31, 2011. The increase was primarily due to the increase to cost of goods sold attritubale to self-ginseng production from Yanbian, as compared to the same period in  2011.

Gross Profit

Gross profit was approximately $248,986 for the three months ended December 31, 2012, compared to $320,864 for the three months ended December 31, 2011, a decrease of $71,878 or 22.40%. The decrease was primarily due to the increased costs associated with the harvest of ginseng in 2012 and the overall inflation in labor, seeds and other costs of production.

Selling, General and Administration Expenses
 
Selling, general expenses and administrative expenses decreased from $625,253 for the three months ended December 31, 2011 to $ 370,102 for the three months ended December 31, 2012, a decrease of $255,151 or 40.81%.  The decrease is mainly due to the decrease in our operation expense from Jilin Ganzhi, such as salary for the workers who produce ginseng juice and expense of ginseng juice marketing.

Interest Expense

Our Interest expense decreased by $8,488, from $91,128 for the three months ended December 31, 2011 to $82,640 for the three months ended December 31, 2012, a decrease of 9.31% This decrease is mainly due to a decrease in the interest rate on the building loan which decreased from 12.464% in 2011 to 11.989% in 2012.

Net Loss

The Net Loss for the three months ended December 31, 2012 was $256,860; a decrease of $165,083 or 39.12%, compared to a net loss of $421,943 for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The decrease is primarily due to the decrease in operating expenses and administrative expenses.

Other Comprehensive Income

We operate primarily in the PRC and the functional currency of our operating subsidiary is the Chinese Renminbi (”RMB”).  The RMB is not freely convertible into foreign currency and all foreign exchange transactions must take place through authorized institutions.  No representation is intended to imply that the Renminbi amounts could have been, or could be, converted, realized or settled into USD at the rate on December 31, 2012 or at any other rate.

The value of RMB against U.S. dollar may fluctuate and is affected by changes in political and economic conditions. Our revenues, costs and financial assets are mostly dominated in RMB while our reporting currency is the U.S. dollar. Accordingly, this may result in gains or losses from currency translation on our financial statements.

Translation adjustments resulting from this process amounted to $16,133 and $33,788 for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  And we have comprehensive loss of $240,727 and $388,155 for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011, respectively.  The assets and liabilities amounts with the exception of equity for the three months ended December 31, 2012 were translated at 6.2855RMB to 1.00 USD as compared to 6.3009 RMB to 1.00 USD for the three months ended December 31, 2011. The equity accounts were stated at their historical rate. The average translation rates applied to the income statements accounts for the three months ended December 31, 2012 and 2011 were 6.3178 RMB and 6.37990 RMB, respectively.

Our total sales decreased from $2,244,455 for the six months ended December 31, 2011 to $2,192,719 for the six months ended December 31, 2012, a decrease of $51,736 or 2%. The decrease was primarily due to decreased sales of purchased ginseng for resale, ginseng juice and wine.

We generated $1,068,037, or 49% sales from our self-production ginseng for the three months ended December 31, 2012, an increase of $209,835, or 24%. The increase was primarily due to increased market price of ginseng. The market price of ginseng increased by $29/kg, or 172% compared to the same period in 2011, due to nation-wide inflation. Meanwhile, the quantity of sold self-production ginseng decreased by 28,012kg, compared to the same period in 2011, as a result of the typhoon that struck the Mudanjiang Ginseng farm destroying approximately 111,839 square meters of planted ginseng with an approximate value of RMB 5,817,110 (US$ 920,840) in August, 2012. As a result, we were only able to harvest the ginseng planted at Yanbian Huaxing farm during the three months ended December 31, 2012.

For six months ended December 31, 2012, approximately $1,043,831 or 48% of revenue was from the resale of ginseng purchased from the market and sold to major customers; a decrease of $ 265,074, or 20% compared to the six months ended December 31, 2011.   The decrease was caused by lower resale price. The resale price for the second half of 2012 decreased by $10 /kg, or 21% compared to the six months ended December 31, 2011. Because the typhoon occurred in August 2012 and damaged most ginseng farming area in Northern China, it was very hard to purchase high quality ginseng from the market and we had to purchase ginseng with lower quality from the market and resell the purchased ginseng at a lower price.

In addition, approximately $13,021 or 1% of our revenue was generated from sales of our ginseng beverage for the six months ended December 31, 2012, a decrease of $63,051, or 83% compared to the same period in 2011. The decrease was due to decreased sales of canned ginseng juice. As a result of our limited cash position in the six months ended December 31, 2012, we were not able to promote the market for our ginseng beverage. In order to improve our sales of canned ginseng juice, we plan to produce smaller pack of our ginseng juice in addition to our current pack of ginseng juice to accommodate different needs from the customers and to attract new customers. Through our efforts, we expect that sales of ginseng beverage will rise to 70% of our revenue in the next five years. However, there is no assurance that our sales of ginseng beverage will meet our expectation as the market conditions may change.
 
The remaining $67,830 of our revenue for the six months ended December 31, 2012 was generates from sales of Aoweisi cosmetic product which was sold through Hong Kong Huaxia based on consumers’ special orders. We do not expect this to be a major source of our revenues in the future.

Our total cost of goods sold increased from $1,754,652 for the six months ended December 31, 2011 to $1,840,400 for the six months ended December 31, 2012, an increase of $185,748 or 10.59%. The primary reasons for the increase were the following:
 
o
We had a cost of $970,506 for ginseng production for the six months ended December 31, 2012, resulting from the ginseng harvest in September, 2012 at Yanbian Huaxing farm, an increase of $415,750, or 74.94% compared to the six months ended December 31, 2011. The increase was due to increased expense on plant sheds, woodland expenses, wages, fertilizer, pesticides, irrigation, transportation fees, etc.

o
We had a cost of $952,261 for purchasing ginseng for resale for the six months ended December 31, 2012, a decrease of $194,669, or 16.97% compared to the six months ended December 31, 2011. The decrease was due to decreased quantity, quality and the price of ginseng we purchased from outside farmer. For the six months ended December 31, 2012, the quality of ginseng we purchased from outside farmer was lower than the same period time of 2011 because it was hard to get high quality ginseng due to typhoon damage on most ginseng farm in Northern China.

o
We had a cost of $5,432 for ginseng beverage production in the six months ended December 31, 2012, a decrease of $46,365, or 89.51% compared to the six months ended December 31, 2011 due to decreased sales;

o
We had a new cost of $12,201 from Aoweisi cosmetic product sales for the three months ended December 31, 2012 which did not occur in the three months ended December 31, 2011.
 
Cost of sales as a percentage of revenue for the six months ended December 31, 2012 increased from 78% to 88% as compared to the comparative period in 2011, because cost of sales of self-production ginseng from Yanbian Huaxing had a significant increase compared to the same period in 2011.

Gross Profit

Gross profit was approximately $252,319 for the six months ended December 31, 2012, compared to $489,803 for the six months ended December 31, 2011, a decrease of $237,484 or 48.49%. The decrease was primarily due to the fact that cost of sales increased at a higher rate than the sales in the six months ended December 31, 2012.

Selling, General and Administrative Costs
 
Selling, general expenses and administrative expenses decreased from $1,126,816 for the six months ended December 31, 2011 to $702,393 for the six months ended December 31, 2012, a decrease of $424,423 or 37.67%.  The decrease was mainly due to the decrease in our operation expense from Jilin Ganzhi, such as salary for the workers who produce ginseng juice and expense on ginseng juice marketing.

Impairment of Ginseng Corps

In the six months ended December 31, 2012, Mudanjiang Huanxing had a damage caused by a typhoon with a loss of approximate $920,840 planted ginseng in Mudanjiang farming land.

Interest Expense

Our Interest expense increased by $26,190 or 17.70%, from $147,944 for the six months ended December 31, 2011 to $174,136 for the six months ended December 31, 2012.  The increase was primarily due to an increase in imputed interest on related party loans due to increased loan balances.
 
Net Loss
 
We had a net loss of $1,650,062 for the six months ended December 31, 2012 and a net loss of $834,202 for the six months ended December 31, 2011, an increase of $815,860 or 97.80%.  The increase is primarily due to the increase in the cost of sales of self-production ginseng.

Operating activities
 
Cash flows used in operating activities decreased by $524 for the six months ended December 31, 2012, compared to the same period of 2011. This change was primarily the result of an increase in net losses of $ 1,650,062, in addition to an increase in accounts receivable of $794,212, an increase in amounts due from related parties of $74,803 and an increase in amounts due from farmers of $92,841. These amounts were offset by a decrease in inventory of $616,636, an increase in accounts payable of $754,655 and an increase in receivable in advance of $78,079, an increase in accrued expenses of $38,766 and an increase in amounts due to farmers of $40,102.

The increase in accounts receivable was primarily due to the temporarily uncollected amount from the sales of ginseng held by Yanbian Huaxin; an increased accounts payable was due to our raw material purchase and the expense of ginseng box during the six months ended December 31, 2012; and an increased in receivable in advance was primary due to the deposit we received from our ginseng juice distributors and customers of Huaxia ; an increase in due from related parties was because of advanced expenses for our ginseng and beverage businesses which were incurred in the six months ended December 31, 2012 and an increase in amounts due from farmers was due to the Company increased and credit to farmer to maintain good relationship with them.

The inventory decreased due to decreased amount of stored ginseng and ginseng juice.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Liquidity is the ability of a company to generate funds to support its current and future operations, to satisfy its obligations and otherwise operate on an ongoing basis. We have historically financed our operations and capital expenditures through loans from related parties, including officers, directors and other shareholders of the Company and have also raised capital through a private placement pursuant to Regulation S, as promulgated under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. 

As of December 31, 2012, we had a working capital deficit of $517,802 compared to a deficit of $547,480 in working capital as of June 30, 2012.

As of December 31, 2012, there was no change in our payments of interest on the loans as well as the amount of the outstanding loans as compared with the three months ended December 31, 2011, since the loans have remained constant. As of December 31, 2012, we had an outstanding loan of 2,000,000 RMB (about $318,193) to Ji’An Qingshi Credit Cooperatives (“Ji’An Qingshi”). The principal terms of the loan are as follows:
 
 
1.
Type of Loan: Short Term Agriculture Loan
 
 
2.
Loan Purpose: Planting
 
 
3.
Loan Amount: Principal of 2,000,000 RMB (about USD $315,408) with an annual interest of 6.325%
 
 
4.
Loan Period:  From February 4, 2002 to February 4, 2003; Repayment due date was February 4, 2003
 
 
5.
Security: The loan is secured by assets of Tonghua including 14 carbon-steel storage cans; 16 high-speed steel storage cans and 150 tons of grape juice.
 
We have not paid any principal or interest of the loan; however, Ji’An Qingshi verbally agreed in March 2008 not to call the loan. The material terms for the verbal agreement are: no principal or interest payments are required to be made until the Company is generating profits and interest continues to accrue until we repay the loan.   Thus, the debt will not have impact on our liquidity and capital resource before we start to repay the lender. Nevertheless, we had a net loss of $1,393,202 for the year ended June 30, 2012. If we continue operations without generating net income, Ji’An Qingshi might revoke the oral agreement and call the loan. If we cannot pay off the loan in the event Ji’An Qingshi revokes the oral agreement, Ji’An Qingshi has the right to sell, initiate an auction sale or take any other methods to liquidate the secured assets and receive the payment of outstanding principal and interest senior to any other party out of the secured assets.  As of the date of this filing, Tonghua Linyuan has 31 storage cans in total including 15 carbon-steel cans and 16 high-speed steel storage cans;  2  white-steel transport tanks, 1170 tons of grape juice. Therefore, if Ji’An Qinshi decides to revoke the oral agreement and call the loan, it will not lead to the close of operation and business of Tonghua Linyuan; however, it will cause extra costs for Tonghua Linyuan to rent additional storage cans from third parties.

On August 30,  2012, we refinanced the 8 million RMB bank loan, which we obtained from Meihekou City Rural Credit Union on November 8, 2010, with a new loan of 8 million RMB (approximately USD $1,272,770) from the same lender.  The principal terms of the new 8 million RMB bank loan agreement are as follows:
 
Parties: Jilin Ganzhi Ginseng Products Co., Ltd (“Jilin Ganzhi”) and Meihekou City Rural Credit Union (“Meihekou Credit Union”);
   
Meihekou Credit Union granted a loan of 8 million RMB (approximately USD $ 1,264,842 ) to Jilin Ganzhi to be used to pay off the previous 8 million RMB bank loan and to generate a new 8 million RMB bank loan;
   
The term of the new loan is 24 months from August 30, 2012 to August 29, 2014;
   
 
The new loan carries a benchmark interest rate based upon the rate announced by the People’s Bank of China with regard to interest rates of same type and class of loans at the date of the loan and changes with the adjustment of national bank rate.  Meihekou Credit Union calculates the interest on a monthly basis applying this annual floating rate which is payable on the 21st day of each month. We paid interest of 94,127 RMB (about USD $ 14,838) on August 21, 2012. However, from September to December, 2012, we have not paid interest and we plan to pay all outstanding interest when we have sufficient cash;
   
Repay the principal by installments according to the following repayment plan: principal payment of RMB1M (approximately USD $159,096) on September 20, 2012, RMB 1M (approximately USD $159,096) on August 29, 2013, RMB 1M (approximately USD $159,096) on December 20, 2013 and RMB 5M (approximately USD $795,481) on August 29, 2014.  The payment due in September 2012 was not made by the Company and the note was thus in default. In order to remedy the default, the Company applied for an extension of payment with Meihekou Credit Union. On April 8, 2013, Meihekou Credit Union and the Company entered into an oral agreement to extend the due date of the payment of RMB1M to December 20, 2013.

The Company does not expect that this default of payment of RMB 1M will impact its ability to raise capital in the future because of the following:

RMB 1M is a relatively small portion of the new 8 million RMB bank loan, which the Company plans to pay off on December 20, 2013. Even if the Company is not able to pay off the note payable of RMB 1M, the Company plans to apply for further extension or refinance a new loan of RMB 1M with Meihekou Credit Union.

In addition to obtaining and refinancing bank loans, the Company is exploring other possible ways to raise capital in the future, including but not limited to: 1) obtaining loans from shareholders or other individuals; 2) applying for an agriculture grant of up to RMB 5,000,000 (approximately $800,000) from Jilin province, which is a governmental reward to support qualified agriculture companies; and/or  3) pursuing additional financing in the form of debt, equity or convertible security offerings based on the evaluation of the Company’s intangible assets such as its registered patent on the drink formula of its ginseng beverage. However, there is no assurance that we will successfully obtain the agriculture grant, or obtain enough capital from shareholders or other individuals, or obtain such additional financing through the debt and equity markets at acceptable terms to us, or at all.
 
For the three months ended December 31, 2012, and 2011, we had notes payables of $ 1,739,000 and $1,141,132 to related parties, respectively. These amounts are mainly due to the working capital demands of the business. Most of these related parties are our individual shareholders or immediate family members of our shareholders. The individuals loaned us funds which are interest free, with no specific repayment date, and unsecured.  The funds received are evidenced by receipt of cash acknowledgments.
 
As of December 31, 2012, we had no material commitments for capital expenditures other than for those expenditures incurred in the ordinary course of business. We plan to fund operations and capital expenditures with cash from operations, as well as financing from major shareholders and management members and their affiliates, and possible financing in the form of debt, equity or convertible security offerings. There can be no assurance that we will be able to obtain such additional financing at acceptable terms to us, or at all.
