  • Revenues generated from the Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) financing solutions business increased by 176.1% to $36.6 million from $13.3 million in the prior year period, primarily due to increased demand from SME customers seeking alternative financing solutions to bank financing.

Cost of revenue

Cost of revenue was $20.7 million, compared to $5.5 million in the prior year period, representing an increase of 278.9%. The increase primarily attributable to increases in revenue and marketing and staff cost incurred in the first half of fiscal 2021.

Gross Profit

Gross profit increased by 127.7% to $18.3 million, from $8.0 million in the prior year period, consistent with growth in revenue. Gross margin was 46.9% and 59.5% for the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively. The decrease in gross margin was primarily due to the increases in direct cost and staff expenses incurred by the SME financing solutions business.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses increased by 66.4% to $6.2 million from $3.7 million in the prior year period. This increase in operating expenses was primarily attributable to an increase of $1.3 million in selling expense as a result of more marketing and promotional activities in the first half of fiscal 2021 and an increase of $0.7 million in general and administrative expenses due to increased professional and staff compensation in the first half of fiscal 2021.

Net income

In the first half of fiscal 2021, the Company achieved a net income of $10.5 million, compared to net loss of $6.1 million in the same period of the prior year, primarily attributable to significant increases in revenue and gross profit from financing solution services. In the first half of 2020, the Company had a net loss of $6.1 million, mainly due to an impairment loss of $9.9 million from the discontinued equipment and engineering operations, which were subsequently disposed of in the second half of 2020.

Net income (loss) per common share

Net income per share was $0.51 in the six months ended June 30, 2021, compared to a net loss per share of $0.34 in the prior year period. The weighted average number of shares was 20,555,129 and 18,167,603 in the six months ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively.

Financial Condition and Cash Flow

As of June 30, 2021, the Company had cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash of $9.9 million, a decrease from $22.2 million as of December 31, 2020. However, the Company’s short-term investment was $37.7 million as of June 30, 2021, representing a significant increase from $4.7 million as of December 31, 2020.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $13.5 million in the first half of fiscal 2021, compared to $1.8 million in the first of fiscal 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to significant growth of revenue and net income in the first half of fiscal 2021.

Net cash used in investing activities was $24.8 million in the first half of 2021, primarily attributable to a net increase of $32.6 million short-term investments in wealth management products and structure deposits issued by financial institutions and commercial banks. For the first half of fiscal 2020, the Company had net cash provided by investing activities of $6.4 million, primarily due to cash acquired from business acquisition.

Net cash used in financing activities was $0.6 million in the first half of 2021, primarily due to repayments to related parties of $1.4 million. Net cash provided by financing activities was $4.4 million in the first half of 2020, primarily due to additional shareholder contribution of $4.6 million.
