On October 27, 2016, Mr. Sun sold his remaining 1,666,667 shares of Common Stock of the Company to Ms. Liu. As a holding company with no material operations, the Company conducts a majority of its business activities through organizations established in the People’s Republic of China (“PRC), primarily by variable interest entity (the “VIE”).

NOTE 2 – SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

GOING CONCERN

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements (“CFS”) were prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets, and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. For the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company had a net loss of approximately $22,056 and $1.34 million, respectively. The Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $28.09 million as of September 30, 2023, and negative cash flow from operating activities of approximately $6.74 million and $0.75 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The historical operating results including recurring losses from operations raise doubt about the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern.

 

On August 1, 2023, the Company entered into two separate subscription agreements with a certain non-U.S. investor, pursuant to which the Company sold an aggregate of 4,760,000 shares of common stock at a $1.2 per share purchase price to the investor. On September 21, 2023, the Company received full payment of RMB 40,000,000 ($5.71 million) from the investor.

 

On August 15, 2023, the Company entered into a subscription agreement with another non-U.S. investor, pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell and the investor agreed to purchase an aggregate of 2,962,963 shares of common stock at a $1.35 per share purchase price, with a total subscription price of $4,000,000. The investor paid the amount of $714,286 to the Company and the Company issued 529,101 shares as of the date of this report, and has promised to pay the remaining balance in full by March 2024.

 

On September 13, 2023, the Company closed an underwritten public offering of 5,000,000 shares of common stock at a public offering price of $0.40 per share. The gross proceeds to the Company from this offering are approximately $2 million, before deducting any fees or expenses. In September 2023, the Company received $1.6 million net proceeds from this offering.

 

If deemed necessary, management could seek to raise additional funds by way of admitting strategic investors or. Private or public offerings, or by seeking to obtain loans from banks or others, to support the Company’s research and development (“R&D”), procurement, marketing and daily operation. While management of the Company believes in the viability of its strategy to generate sufficient revenues and its ability to raise additional funds on reasonable terms and conditions, there can be no assurances to that effect. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern depends upon the Company’s ability to further implement its business plan and generate sufficient revenue and its ability to raise additional funds by way of a public or private offering. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain funds on commercially acceptable terms, if at all. There is also no assurance that the amount of funds the Company might raise will enable the Company to complete its initiatives or attain profitable operations. If the Company is unable to raise additional funding to meet its working capital needs in the future, it may be forced to delay, reduce or cease its operations.

VARIABLE INTEREST ENTITY

 

Pursuant to Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Section 810, “Consolidation” (“ASC 810”), the Company is required to include in its CFS, the financial statements of Shuhai Beijing, its VIE. ASC 810 requires a VIE to be consolidated if the 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. A VIE is an entity in which a company, through contractual arrangements, bears the risk of, and enjoys the rewards of such entity, and therefore the Company is the primary beneficiary of such entity. 

 

Under ASC 810, a reporting entity has a controlling financial interest in a VIE, and must consolidate that VIE, if the reporting entity has both of the following characteristics: (a) the power to direct the activities of the VIE that most significantly affect the VIE’s economic performance; and (b) the obligation to absorb losses, or the right to receive benefits, that could potentially be significant to the VIE. The reporting entity’s determination of whether it has this power is not affected by the existence of kick-out rights or participating rights, unless a single enterprise, including its related parties and de - facto agents, have the unilateral ability to exercise those rights. Shuhai Beijing’s actual stockholders do not hold any kick-out rights that affect the consolidation determination.

 

Through the VIE agreements, Tianjin Information, an indirect subsidiary of Datasea is deemed the primary beneficiary of Shuhai Beijing and its subsidiaries. Accordingly, the results of Shuhai Beijing and its subsidiaries were included in the accompanying CFS. Shuhai Beijing has no assets that are collateral for or restricted solely to settle their obligations. The creditors of Shuhai Beijing do not have recourse to the Company’s general credit.

Furthermore, if Shuhai Beijing cannot pay off its debts, WFOE shall pay off the debt on Shuhai Beijing’s behalf. If Shuhai Beijing’s net assets fall lower than its registered capital balance, WFOE shall provide capital for Shuhai Beijing to make up for the deficit.

 

Under the terms of the Operation and Intellectual Property Service Agreement, Shuhai Beijing entrusts Tianjin Information to manage its operations, manage and control its assets and financial matters, and provide intellectual property services, purchasing management services, marketing management services and inventory management services to Shuhai Beijing.

Stockholders’ Voting Rights Entrustment Agreement – Tianjin Information has entered into a stockholders’ voting rights entrustment agreement (the “Entrustment Agreement”) under which Zhixin Liu and Fu Liu (collectively the “Shuhai Beijing Stockholders”) have vested their voting power in Shuhai Beijing to Tianjin Information or its designee(s). The Entrustment Agreement does not have an expiration date, but the parties can agree in writing to terminate the Entrustment Agreement. Zhixin Liu, is the Chairman of the Board, President, CEO of DataSea and Corporate Secretary, and Fu Liu, a Director of the DataSea (Fu Liu is the father of Zhixin Liu).

 

Equity Option Agreement – the Shuhai Beijing Stockholders and Tianjin Information entered into an equity option agreement (the “Option Agreement”), pursuant to which the Shuhai Beijing Stockholders have granted Tianjin Information or its designee(s) the irrevocable right and option to acquire all or a portion of Shuhai Beijing Stockholders’ equity interests in Shuhai Beijing for an option price of RMB0.001 for each capital contribution of RMB1.00. Pursuant to the terms of the Option Agreement, Tianjin Information and the Shuhai Beijing Stockholders have agreed to certain restrictive covenants to safeguard the rights of Tianjin Information under the Option Agreement. Tianjin Information agreed to pay RMB1.00 annually to Shuhai Beijing Stockholders to maintain the option rights. Tianjin Information may terminate the Option Agreement upon prior written notice. The Option Agreement is valid for a period of 10 years from the effective date and renewable at Tianjin Information’s option.

 

Equity Pledge Agreement – Tianjin Information and the Shuhai Beijing Stockholders entered into an equity pledge agreement on October 27, 2015 (the “Equity Pledge Agreement”). The Equity Pledge Agreement serves to guarantee the performance by Shuhai Beijing of its obligations under the Operation and Intellectual Property Service Agreement and the Option Agreement. Pursuant to the Equity Pledge Agreement, Shuhai Beijing Stockholders have agreed to pledge all of their equity interests in Shuhai Beijing to Tianjin Information. Tianjin Information has the right to collect any and all dividends, bonuses and other forms of investment returns paid on the pledged equity interests during the pledge period. Pursuant to the terms of the Equity Pledge Agreement, the Shuhai Beijing Stockholders have agreed to certain restrictive covenants to safeguard the rights of Tianjin Information. Upon an event of default or certain other agreed events under the Operation and Intellectual Property Service Agreement, the Option Agreement and the Equity Pledge Agreement, Tianjin Information may exercise the right to enforce the pledge. 

 

As of this report date, there were no dividends paid from the VIE to the U.S. parent company or the shareholders of the Company. There has been no change in facts and circumstances to consolidate the VIE. The following financial statement amounts and balances of the VIE were included in the accompanying CFS as of September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023, and for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

USE OF ESTIMATES 

 

The preparation of CFS in conformity with U.S. 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 financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting periods. Actual results could differ from those estimates. The significant areas requiring the use of management estimates include, but are not limited to, the estimated useful life and residual value of property, plant and equipment, provision for staff benefits, recognition and measurement of deferred income taxes and the valuation allowance for deferred tax assets. Although these estimates are based on management’s knowledge of current events and actions management may undertake in the future, actual results may ultimately differ from those estimates and such differences may be material to the CFS.

CONTINGENCIES

 

Certain conditions may exist as of the date the CFS are issued, which may result in a loss to the Company but which will only be resolved when one or more future events occur or fail to occur. The Company’s management and legal counsel assess such contingent liabilities, and such assessment inherently involves an exercise of judgment. In assessing loss contingencies related to legal proceedings that are pending against the Company or unasserted claims that may result in such proceedings, the Company’s legal counsel evaluates the perceived merits of any legal proceedings or unasserted claims as well as the perceived merits of the amount of relief sought or expected to be sought. If the assessment of a contingency indicates that it is probable that a material loss has been incurred and the amount of the liability can be estimated, the estimated liability would be accrued in the Company’s CFS. 

 

If the assessment indicates that a potential material loss contingency is not probable but is reasonably possible, or is probable but cannot be estimated, the nature of the contingent liability, together with an estimate of the range of possible loss if determinable and material, would be disclosed. As of September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023, the Company has no such contingencies.

 

CASH

 

Cash includes cash on hand and demand deposits that are highly liquid in nature and have original maturities when purchased of three months or less.  

 

ACCOUNTS RECEIVABLE

 

The Company’s policy is to maintain an allowance for potential credit losses on accounts receivable. The Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) 2016-13, Financial Instruments – Credit Losses (Topic 326): Measurement of Credit losses on financial instruments later codified as Accounting Standard codification (“ASC”) 326 (“ASC 326”), on July 1, 2023. The guidance introduces a revised approach to the recognition and measurement of credit losses, emphasizing an updated model based on expected losses rather than incurred losses. There was no significant impact on the date of adoption of ASC 326.

 

Under ASC 326, Accounts receivable are recorded at the invoiced amount, net of allowance for expected credit losses. The Company’s primary allowance for credit losses is the allowance for doubtful accounts. The allowance for doubtful accounts reduces the Accounts receivable balance to the estimated net realizable value. The Company regularly reviews the adequacy of the allowance for credit losses based on a combination of factors. In establishing any required allowance, management considers historical losses adjusted for current market conditions, the Company’s customers’ financial condition, the amount of any receivables in dispute, the current receivables aging, current payment terms and expectations of forward-looking loss estimates.

 

All provisions for the allowance for doubtful accounts are included as a component of general and administrative expenses on the accompanying consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss. Accounts receivable deemed uncollectible are charged against the allowance for credit losses when identified. Subsequent recoveries of amounts previously written off are credited to earnings in the period recovered. As of September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023, the Company had a $0 bad debt allowance for accounts receivable. 

 

INVENTORY

 

Inventory is comprised principally of intelligent temperature measurement face recognition terminal and identity information recognition products, and is valued at the lower of cost or net realizable value. The value of inventory is determined using the first-in, first-out method. The Company periodically estimates an inventory allowance for estimated unmarketable inventories when necessary. Inventory amounts are reported net of such allowances. There were $53,254 and $52,915 allowances for slow-moving and obsolete inventory (mainly for Smart-Student Identification cards) as of September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023, respectively.

 

PROPERTY AND EQUIPMENT

 

Property and equipment are stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation. Major repairs and improvements that significantly extend original useful lives or improve productivity are capitalized and depreciated over the period benefited. Maintenance and repairs are expensed as incurred. When property and equipment are retired or otherwise disposed of, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the respective accounts, and any gain or loss is included in operations. Depreciation of property and equipment is provided using the straight-line method over estimated useful lives as follows:

 

Furniture and fixtures  3-5 years
Office equipment  3-5 years
Vehicles  5 years
Leasehold improvement  3 years

 

Leasehold improvements are depreciated utilizing the straight-line method over the shorter of their estimated useful lives or remaining lease term.

 

11

 

 

INTANGIBLE ASSETS

 

Intangible assets with finite lives are amortized using the straight-line method over their estimated period of benefit. Evaluation of the recoverability of intangible assets is made to take into account events or circumstances that warrant revised estimates of useful lives or that indicate that impairment exists. All of the Company’s intangible assets are subject to amortization. No impairment of intangible assets has been identified as of the balance sheet date.

 

Intangible assets include licenses, certificates, patents and other technology and are amortized over their useful life of three years.

 

FAIR VALUE (“FV”) OF FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

 

The carrying value of the Company’s short-term financial instruments, such as cash, accounts receivable, prepaid expenses, accounts payable, unearned revenue, accrued expenses and other payables approximates their FV due to their short maturities. FASB ASC Topic 825, “Financial Instruments,” requires disclosure of the FV of financial instruments held by the Company. The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for current liabilities qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of their FV because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and the current market rate of interest.

 

FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS AND DISCLOSURES

 

FASB ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements,” defines FV, and establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures that enhances disclosure requirements for FV measures. The three levels are defined as follows:

 

  Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

 

Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include other than those in level 1 quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.

 

Level 3 inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the FV measurement.

 

As of September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023, the Company did not identify any assets or liabilities required to be presented on the balance sheet at FV on a recurring basis.

 

IMPAIRMENT OF LONG-LIVED ASSETS

 

In accordance with FASB ASC 360-10, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets”, long-lived assets such as property and equipment are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable, or it is reasonably possible that these assets could become impaired as a result of technological or other changes. The determination of recoverability of assets to be held and used is made by comparing the carrying amount of an asset to future undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by the asset.

 

If such assets are considered impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured as the amount by which the carrying amount of the asset exceeds its FV. FV generally is determined using the asset’s expected future undiscounted cash flows or market value, if readily determinable. Assets to be disposed of are reported at the lower of the carrying amount or FV less cost to sell. For the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, there was no impairment loss recognized on long-lived assets.

UNEARNED REVENUE

 

The Company records payments received in advance from its customers or sales agents for the Company’s products as unearned revenue, mainly consisting of deposits or prepayment for 5G products from the Company’s sales agencies. These orders normally are delivered based upon contract terms and customer demand, and the Company will recognize it as revenue when the products are delivered to the end customers. 

 

LEASES

 

The Company determines if an arrangement is a lease at inception under FASB ASC Topic 842. Right of Use Assets (“ROU”) and lease liabilities are recognized at commencement date based on the present value of remaining lease payments over the lease term. For this purpose, the Company considers only payments that are fixed and determinable at the time of commencement. As most of its leases do not provide an implicit rate, it uses its incremental borrowing rate based on the information available at commencement date in determining the present value of lease payments. The Company’s incremental borrowing rate is a hypothetical rate based on its understanding of what its credit rating would be. The ROU assets include adjustments for prepayments and accrued lease payments. The ROU asset also includes any lease payments made prior to commencement and is recorded net of any lease incentives received. The Company’s lease terms may include options to extend or terminate the lease when it is reasonably certain that it will exercise such options.

 

ROU assets are reviewed for impairment when indicators of impairment are present. ROU assets from operating and finance leases are subject to the impairment guidance in ASC 360, Property, Plant, and Equipment, as ROU assets are long-lived nonfinancial assets.

 

ROU assets are tested for impairment individually or as part of an asset group if the cash flows related to the ROU asset are not independent from the cash flows of other assets and liabilities. An asset group is the unit of accounting for long-lived assets to be held and used, which represents the lowest level for which identifiable cash flows are largely independent of the cash flows of other groups of assets and liabilities. The Company recognized no impairment of ROU assets as of September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023.

 

REVENUE RECOGNITION

 

The Company follows Accounting Standards Codification Topic 606, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (ASC 606).

 

The core principle underlying FASB ASC 606 is that the Company will recognize revenue to represent the transfer of goods and services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the Company expects to be entitled in such exchange. This will require the Company to identify contractual performance obligations and determine whether revenue should be recognized at a point in time or over time, based on when control of goods and services transfers to a customer. The Company’s revenue streams are identified when possession of goods and services is transferred to a customer.

 

FASB ASC Topic 606 requires the use of a new five-step model to recognize revenue from customer contracts. The five-step model requires the Company (i) identify the contract with the customer, (ii) identify the performance obligations in the contract, (iii) determine the transaction price, including variable consideration to the extent that it is probable that a significant future reversal will not occur, (iv) allocate the transaction price to the respective performance obligations in the contract, and (v) recognize revenue when (or as) the Company satisfies each performance obligation.

 

The Company derives its revenues from product sales and 5G messaging service contracts with its customers, with revenues recognized upon delivery of services and products. Persuasive evidence of an arrangement is demonstrated via product sale contracts and professional service contracts, with performance obligations identified. The transaction price, such as product selling price, and the service price to the customer with corresponding performance obligations are fixed upon acceptance of the agreement. The Company recognizes revenue when it satisfies each performance obligation, the customer receives the products and passes the inspection and when professional service is rendered to the customer, collectability of payment is probable. These revenues are recognized at a point in time after each performance obligations is satisfied. Revenue is recognized net of returns and value-added tax charged to customers.

SEGMENT INFORMATION

 

FASB ASC Topic 280, “Segment Reporting,” requires use of the “management approach” model for segment reporting. The management approach model is based on the method a company’s management organizes segments within the company for making operating decisions and assessing performance. Reportable segments are based on products and services, geography, legal structure, management structure, or any other manner in which management disaggregates a company. Management determined the Company’s current operations constitutes a single reportable segment in accordance with ASC 280. The Company’s only business and industry segment is high technology and advanced information systems (“TAIS”). TAIS include smart city solutions that meet the security needs of residential communities, schools and commercial enterprises, and 5G messaging services including 5G SMS, 5G MMCP and 5G multi-media video messaging.

 

All of the Company’s customers are in the PRC and all revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022 were generated from the PRC. All identifiable assets of the Company are located in the PRC. Accordingly, no geographical segments are presented.

 

INCOME TAXES

 

The Company uses the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes.” Under this method, income tax expense is recognized for the amount of: (i) taxes payable or refundable for the current period and (ii) deferred tax consequences of temporary differences resulting from matters that have been recognized in an entity’s financial statements or tax returns. Deferred tax assets also include the prior years’ net operating losses carried forward. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. The effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in the results of operations in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is provided to reduce the deferred tax assets reported if based on the weight of the available positive and negative evidence, it is more likely than not some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

The Company follows FASB ASC Topic 740, which prescribes a more-likely-than-not threshold for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. FASB ASC Topic 740 also provides guidance on recognition of income tax assets and liabilities, classification of current and deferred income tax assets and liabilities, accounting for interest and penalties associated with tax positions, accounting for income taxes in interim periods, and income tax disclosures.

 

14

 

 

Under the provisions of FASB ASC Topic 740, when tax returns are filed, it is likely some positions taken would be sustained upon examination by the taxing authorities, while others are subject to uncertainty about the merits of the position taken or the amount of the position that would be ultimately sustained. The benefit of a tax position is recognized in the financial statements in the period during which, based on all available evidence, management believes it is more likely than not that the position will be sustained upon examination, including the resolution of appeals or litigation processes, if any. Tax positions taken are not offset or aggregated with other positions. Tax positions that meet the more-likely-than-not recognition threshold are measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that is more than 50 percent likely of being realized upon settlement with the applicable taxing authority. The portion of the benefits associated with tax positions taken that exceeds the amount measured as described above is reflected as a liability for unrecognized tax benefits in the accompanying balance sheets along with any associated interest and penalties that would be payable to the taxing authorities upon examination. Interest associated with unrecognized tax benefits is classified as interest expense and penalties are classified in selling, general and administrative expenses in the statement of income.  As of September 30, 2023, the Company had no unrecognized tax positions and no charges during the three months ended September 30, 2023, and accordingly, the Company did not recognize any interest or penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits. The Company files a U.S. and PRC income tax return. With few exceptions, the Company’s U.S. income tax returns filed for the years ending on June 30, 2018 and thereafter are subject to examination by the relevant taxing authorities; the Company uses calendar year-end for its PRC income tax return filing, PRC income tax returns filed for the years ending on December 31, 2017 and thereafter are subject to examination by the relevant taxing authorities.

 

RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT EXPENSES

 

Research and development expenses are expensed in the period when incurred. These costs primarily consist of cost of materials used, salaries paid for the Company’s development department, and fees paid to third parties.

 

NONCONTROLLING INTERESTS

 

The Company follows FASB ASC Topic 810, “Consolidation,” governing the accounting for and reporting of noncontrolling interests (“NCIs”) in partially owned consolidated subsidiaries and the loss of control of subsidiaries. Certain provisions of this standard indicate, among other things, that NCI (previously referred to as minority interests) be treated as a separate component of equity, not as a liability, that increases and decreases in the parent’s ownership interest that leave control intact be treated as equity transactions rather than as step acquisitions or dilution gains or losses, and that losses of a partially-owned consolidated subsidiary be allocated to non-controlling interests even when such allocation might result in a deficit balance. 

 

The net income (loss) attributed to NCI was separately designated in the accompanying statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss). Losses attributable to NCI in a subsidiary may exceed a non-controlling interest’s interests in the subsidiary’s equity. The excess attributable to NCIs is attributed to those interests. NCIs shall continue to be attributed their share of losses even if that attribution results in a deficit NCI balance. On December 20, 2022, Guohao Century acquired a 30% ownership noncontrolling interests of Zhangxun from Zhengmao Zhang at the price of $0.15 (RMB 1.00). The Company recognized a paid in capital deficit of $982,014 from this purchase due to continued loss of Zhangxun. Subsequent to this purchase, the Company ultimately holds a 99.9% ownership of Zhangxun. On July 20, 2023, the Company sold Zhangxun to a third party for RMB 2 ($0.28).

 

As of September 30, 2023, Zhangqi was 1% owned by noncontrolling interest, Shuhai Nanjing was 1% owned by noncontrolling interest, Shenzhen Acoustic MP was 1% owned by noncontrolling interest, Shuhai Shenzhen Acoustic was 0.1% owned by noncontrolling interest, Guozhong Times was 0.091% owned by noncontrolling interest, and Guozhong Haoze was 0.091% owned by noncontrolling interest. During the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company had loss of $9,932 and $96,624 attributable to the noncontrolling interest, respectively.

CONCENTRATION OF CREDIT RISK 

 

The Company maintains cash in accounts with state-owned banks within the PRC. Cash in state-owned banks less than RMB500,000 ($76,000) is covered by insurance. Should any institution holding the Company’s cash become insolvent, or if the Company is unable to withdraw funds for any reason, the Company could lose the cash on deposit with that institution. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts and believes it is not exposed to any risks on its cash in these bank accounts. Cash denominated in RMB with a U.S. dollar equivalent of $1,161,277 and $17,432 as of September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023, respectively, was held in accounts at financial institutions located in the PRC‚ which is not freely convertible into foreign currencies.

 

Cash held in accounts at U.S. financial institutions is insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or other programs subject to certain limitations up to $250,000 per depositor. As of September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023, cash of $56,227 and $1,487 was maintained at U.S. financial institutions. Cash was maintained at financial institutions in Hong Kong, and was insured by the Hong Kong Deposit Protection Board up to a limit of HK $500,000 ($64,000). As of September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023, the cash balance of $1,245 and $809 was maintained at financial institutions in Hong Kong. The Company, its subsidiaries and VIE have not experienced any losses in such accounts and do not believe the cash is exposed to any significant risk.

 

FOREIGN CURRENCY TRANSLATION AND COMPREHENSIVE INCOME (LOSS)

 

The accounts of the Company’s Chinese entities are maintained in RMB and the accounts of the U.S. parent company are maintained in United States dollar (“USD”). The financial statements of the Chinese entities were translated into USD in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 830 “Foreign Currency Matters.” All assets and liabilities were translated at the exchange rate on the balance sheet date; stockholders’ equity is translated at historical rates and the statements of operations and cash flows are translated at the weighted average exchange rate for the period. The resulting translation adjustments are reported under other comprehensive income (loss) in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 220, “Comprehensive Income.” Gains and losses resulting from foreign currency transactions are reflected in the statements of operations.

 

The Company follows FASB ASC Topic”220-10, “Comprehensive Income (loss).” Comprehensive income (loss) comprises net income (loss) and all changes to the statements of changes in stockholders’ equity, except those due to investments by stockholders, changes in additional paid-in capital and distributions to stockholders.

 

The exchange rates used to translate amounts in RMB to USD for the purposes of preparing the CFS were as follows:

 

   September 30,   September 30,   June 30, 
   2023   2022   2023 
Period-end date USD: RMB exchange rate   7.1798    7.0998    7.2258 
Average USD for the reporting period: RMB exchange rate   7.1729    6.8287    6.9415 

 

BASIC AND DILUTED EARNINGS (LOSS) PER SHARE (EPS) 

 

Basic EPS is computed by dividing income available to common shareholders by the weighted average number of common shares outstanding for the period. Diluted EPS is computed similarly, except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential common shares had been issued and if the additional common shares were dilutive. Diluted EPS is based on the assumption that all dilutive convertible shares and stock options were converted or exercised. Dilution is computed by applying the treasury stock method. Under this method, options and warrants are assumed to have been exercised at the beginning of the period (or at the time of issuance, if later), and as if funds obtained thereby were used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period. For the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company’s basic and diluted loss per share are the same as a result of the Company’s net loss. 1,319,953 warrants were anti-dilutive and was therefore excluded from EPS for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. 

 

STATEMENT OF CASH FLOWS 

 

In accordance with FASB ASC Topic 230, “Statement of Cash Flows,” cash flows from the Company’s operations are calculated based upon the local currencies. As a result, amounts shown on the statement of cash flows may not necessarily agree with changes in the corresponding asset and liability on the balance sheet.

RECENT ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-13, Financial Instruments-Credit Losses (Topic 326), which requires entities to measure all expected credit losses for financial assets held at the reporting date based on historical experience, current conditions, and reasonable and supportable forecasts. This replaces the existing incurred loss model and is applicable to the measurement of credit losses on financial assets measured at amortized cost. This guidance is effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2022. Early application will be permitted for all entities for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2018. The Company adopted this guidance on July 1, 2023, there was no significant impact on the date of adoption of ASC 326.

 

The Company’s management does not believe that any other recently issued, but not yet effective, authoritative guidance, if currently adopted, would have a material impact on the Company’s financial statement presentation or disclosures.

The fair value of 3,459,500 shares at issuance date was $3,976,362 and was recorded as the Company’s stock compensation expense during the year ended June 30, 2023.

 

NOTE 11 – INCOME TAXES

 

The Company is subject to income taxes by entity on income arising in or derived from the tax jurisdiction in which each entity is domiciled. The Company’s PRC subsidiaries file their income tax returns online with PRC tax authorities. The Company conducts all of its businesses through its subsidiaries and affiliated entities, principally in the PRC.

 

The Company’s U.S. parent company is subject to U.S. income tax rate of 21% and files U.S. federal income tax return.  As of September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023, the U.S. entity had net operating loss (“NOL”) carry forwards for income tax purposes of $6.72 million and $6.51 million. The NOL arising in tax years beginning after 2017 may reduce 80% of a taxpayer’s taxable income, and be carried forward indefinitely. However, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (“the CARES Act”) passed in March 2020, provides tax relief to both corporate and noncorporate taxpayers by adding a five-year carryback period and temporarily repealing the 80% limitation for NOLs arising in 2018, 2019 and 2020. Management believes the realization of benefits from these losses remains uncertain due to the parent Company’s limited operating history and continuing losses. Accordingly, a 100% deferred tax asset valuation allowance was provided.

 

23

 

 

The Company’s offshore subsidiary, Shuhai Skill (HK), a HK holding company is subject to 16.5% corporate income tax in HK. Shuhai Beijing received a tax holiday with a 15% corporate income tax rate since it qualified as a high-tech company. Tianjin Information, Xunrui, Guozhong Times, Guozhong Haoze, Guohao Century, Jingwei, Shuhai Nanjing, Zhangxun are subject to the regular 25% PRC income tax rate.

 

As of September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023, the Company has approximately $16.05 million and $17.10 million of NOL from its HK holding company, PRC subsidiaries and VIEs that expire in calendar years 2021 through 2025. In assessing the realization of deferred tax assets, management considers whether it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The ultimate realization of deferred tax assets depends upon the Company’s future generation of taxable income during the periods in which temporary differences representing net future deductible amounts become deductible. Management considers the scheduled reversal of deferred tax liabilities, projected future taxable income and tax planning strategies in making this assessment. After consideration of all the information available, management believes that significant uncertainty exists with respect to future realization of the deferred tax assets and has therefore established a full valuation allowance as of September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023.

 

The following table reconciles the U.S. statutory rates to the Company’s effective tax rate for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022:

 

   2023   2022

Datasea is not a Chinese operating company, but a Nevada-based holding company. Its subsidiary, Datasea Acoustics LLC, located in Delaware, serves as the global hub for our acoustic business operations, catering to the U.S. and international markets by providing acoustic technologies and application products, and there is no sales outside of PRC yet as of the report date. Additionally, the Company conducts business activities in China through its subsidiary, Tianjin Information Sea Information Technology Co., Ltd. (“Shuhai Tianjin”), and its VIE entity, Shuhai Information Technology Co., Ltd. (“Shuhai Beijing”), along with their subsidiary entities. Shuhai Beijing offers cutting-edge products and solutions in intelligent acoustics and 5G messaging applications, catering to a wide spectrum of commercial enterprises, households, and individuals in China.

 

Internationalization has always been a crucial strategy for the Company. Datasea established its wholly-owned subsidiary, Datasea Acoustics LLC, in Delaware, USA in July 2023. Since then, the company has embarked on a journey of providing the leading and high-quality ultrasonic air sterilizers, bathroom and cloakroom sterilizers and odor removal products, as well as continuous new products including ultrasonic Skin Repair Robots and Schumann frequency sleep monitors to the global market, mainly the U.S. market, catering to a broad and growing global consumer base. During the reporting period, the Company collaborated with the globally renowned testing organization, Intertek Inc., to conduct ETL safety and functional certifications for the air disinfection products intended for sale in the United States. This included certifications related to ozone and Aspergillus flavus. We anticipate completing these certifications in the next quarter and commencing the sales of these products in the U.S. market on a larger scale. Furthermore, we entered into cooperation agreements with several well-known American local distributors of smart products. We successfully registered and established an online sales store on the Amazon platform. Additionally, in partnership with the renowned U.S. intellectual property firm, Paul & Paul, we actively pursued various U.S. patents and international patents. We aim to build a strong intellectual property portfolio in the United States and even internationally through patent applications and the acquisition of high-quality patents. With a focus on the primary track of acoustic intelligence, we are seeking potential merger and acquisition targets in areas such as acoustic disinfection, acoustic medical aesthetics, acoustic health, acoustic agriculture, and acoustic industrial applications. This is part of our strategy for international expansion through mergers and acquisitions.

 

Technology and Innovation

 

Datasea is the global initiator, promoter and practitioner of the concept of acoustic intelligence. Our commitment to technological advancement and global reach positions us at the forefront of delivering cutting-edge intelligent acoustics solutions, especially focusing on ultrasound, infrasound, directional sound and Schumann resonance technology, to meet the evolving needs of our customers and communities worldwide. The research and development of intelligent acoustics technology plays a vital role for the Company and is what makes us different.

Combined with artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and data analytics, our Acoustics and 5G intelligent products and solutions are able to serve more than 48.42 million enterprises of all types (over 99% are small and medium enterprises (“SMEs”)) and households in China. Acoustic technology and products will also create a healthy living environment for approximately 30.7 million businesses of various types and over 130 million households in the United States.

 

As of the date of this report, Shuhai Beijing and its subsidiaries own 27 patents and 106 software copyrights in the PRC, which include 13 pending patent applications in core technologies, to empower and grow the business. In addition, the U.S. subsidiary, Datasea Acoustics, is actively acquiring U.S. patents, as well as international patents, and collaborating with U.S. universities and world-renowned research institutions.

 

The Company holds an outstanding position in the field of acoustics, particularly in the areas such as ultrasound, infrasound, and directional sound. To promote research and innovation in these areas, the Company actively collaborates with several prominent research institutions and universities to enhance the integration and collaboration of research resources. These collaborations and the establishment of these laboratories further solidify the Company’s leading position in the field of acoustics, providing a strong foundation for future innovations and development. In particular, our collaboration with the Chinese Academy of Sciences is worth highlighting. Since signing a cooperation agreement with the Institute of Acoustics at the Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2022, we have been jointly advancing research projects and establishing collaborative laboratories. Two new projects have been initiated: 1) Medical Ultrasound Project: This project, namely the ultrasound CT, focuses on using ultrasound waves to enhance diagnostic imaging and screening. It is particularly effective for the early detection of breast cancer, offering high resolution and high-quality imaging. It is well-suited for the characteristics of Asian women, and it has the potential to significantly improve screening efficiency. The initial tests on experimental machines have been successfully completed, and following human testing and data collection, we anticipate completing the first-generation product by 2024; 2) Ultrasound Cognitive Enhancement Project: This project has already completed the preliminary research and algorithm development phases. It will now progress to data collection and the development of a product model.

Our Business Summary

 

We deeply understand that the market needs new application areas, new technologies, and new requirements. Therefore, through the tireless efforts of our team, we have continued to research and upgrade from visual algorithms to acoustic-based non-visual algorithms. After achieving significant breakthroughs in the field of acoustics, we have further expanded product applications and market development into areas such as ultrasound, subsonic, and directional sound.

 

Acoustic intelligence is a new field that integrates fundamental acoustic theory with artificial intelligence to gather and process acoustic data and solve problems. Datasea leverages cutting-edge technologies in the realm of intelligent acoustics, especially harnessing the power of ultrasonic sterilization to combat viruses and prevent human infections. This technology capitalizes on the mechanical, thermal, and cavitation effects of ultrasound. When stimulated by ultrasound, microorganisms, including the coronavirus, undergo significant vibration strains, disrupting the virus’s outer shell and internal RNA. The rapid movement of protons in the ultrasound eventually devastates microbial structures, annihilating harmful pathogens.

 

Leveraging Datasea’s cutting-edge intelligent acoustics technology together with AI technology, we successfully developed a series of ultrasonic disinfection products named the “Hailijia” series air sterilizer products.

Going Concern

 

The accompanying unaudited consolidated financial statements were prepared assuming the Company will continue as a going concern, which contemplates continuity of operations, realization of assets, and liquidation of liabilities in the normal course of business. For the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, the Company had a net loss of approximately $22,056 and $1.34 million, respectively. The Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $28.09 million as of September 30, 2023, and negative cash flow from operating activities of approximately $6.74 million and $0.75 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively. The historical operating results indicate the Company has recurring losses from operations which raise the question related to the Company’s ability to continue as a going concern although the range of such recurring operating losses has narrowed in recent years. There can be no assurance the Company will become profitable or obtain necessary financing for its business and investments or that it will be able to continue in business and investments. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of these uncertainties. As of September 30, 2023, the Company had cash of $1,218,748.

 

37

 

 

We continue to bring in additional investors to support our company’s research and development, marketing and operations. On August 1, 2023, the Company entered into two separate subscription agreements with a certain non-U.S. investor, pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell and the investor agreed to purchase an aggregate of 4,760,000 shares of common stock price at a $1.2 per share purchase price. Such shares must be held for a period of 365 days. In accordance with such two agreements, Investor shall pay a total purchase price of $5,712,000 in RMB, at an amount of RMB 40,000,000, no later than September 30, 2023. On September 21, the Company has received all of the payment of RMB 40,000,000. On August 15, 2023, the Company entered into a subscription agreement with a non-U.S. investor to purchase an aggregate of 2,962,963 shares of common stock price at a $1.35 per share purchase price, with a total subscription price of $4,000,000. The shares must be held for a period of 180 days. On September 13, 2023, our Company announced the closing of an underwritten public offering of 5,000,000 shares of common stock at a public offering price of $0.40 per share, for aggregate gross proceeds of $1,635,000, after deducting underwriting discounts and other offering expenses. We believe these fundings demonstrate our investors’ confidence on our strategy and business. 

 

If deemed necessary, management could seek to raise additional funds by the way of introducing strategic investors or private or public offerings, or by obtaining loans from banks or others, to support the Company’s research and development, procurement, marketing and daily operation. However, there can be no assurance that additional funds will be available when needed from any source or, if available, will be available on terms that are acceptable to us. We may be required to pursue sources of additional capital through various means, including debt or equity financings. Future financings through equity investments are likely to be dilutive to existing stockholders. Also, the terms of securities we may issue in the future capital transactions may be more favorable for new investors. Further, we may incur substantial costs in pursuing future capital and/or financing, including investment banking fees, legal fees, accounting fees, printing and distribution expenses and other costs. Our ability to obtain needed financing may be impaired by such factors as the capital markets and our history of losses, which could impact the availability or cost of future financings. If the amount of capital we are able to raise from financing activities, together with our revenues from operations, is not sufficient to satisfy our capital needs, even to the extent that we reduce our operations accordingly, we may be required to cease operations.

Combining the advantages of “Internet of Things+” intelligent terminals and 5G messaging industry chain, Shuhai Information is advancing with the time, taking the train of the 5G era, and developing 5G message/phone top up business. At this stage, Shuhai is carrying out the development, operation and promotion services of the Internet of Things market and increasing the effective combination of resources with Mobile Internet enterprises and the Internet of Things industrial chain.

 

In 2023, the 5G phone recharge business of Shuhai Information accounts for a relatively big proportion of the total revenue, because, at this stage, the business belongs to the early stage of the development, operation and promotion services of the Internet of Things market, and the investment in all aspects is large. In addition, the gross profit of the phone charge recharging business is generally low. As a result, the annual gross profit margin decreased from the previous year. The Company’s focus in this business is to integrate new resources, expand new businesses related to 5G, combine the Company’s years of deep cultivation and accumulation in 5G news, and take this opportunity to open up more 5G-related businesses to increase the Company’s revenue and new business. 

 

In China’s mature and transparent market today, gross margins on services are far greater than those on hardware sales. The improvement of gross profit margin shows that the Company’s measures to improve gross profit margin are gradually showing effect: 1) costs will be reduced by economic scale over a larger number of customers base and the increase in production; 2) the Company, by adopting the differentiation strategy, grows brand recognition and customer loyalty, strengthening the Company’s pricing power; 3) As the scale of 5G recharge services and the number of serviced customers, along with service quality, continue to improve, customized and value-added services, as well as service fees, will gradually increase. This will boost the profitability of the Company’s related businesses. The Company will continue to increase the share of high gross profit products in the sales while increasing the revenue, so as to further improve the gross profit rate and give investors a better return on investment.

 

Selling, General and Administrative, and Research and Development Expenses

 

Selling expenses were $84,447 and $104,114 for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively, representing a decrease of $19,667 or 18.9%. The decrease was mainly due to the decrease in payroll expense of salespersons by $79,798, decreased travel expense by $5,089, and decreased other selling expenses by $1,388, which was partly offset by increased advertising and marketing expense by $66,608.

 

Currently, we are focusing on expanding the Company’s leading intelligent acoustics technologies and products and continuing to develop 5G-related applications. We incurred R&D expenses of $155,004 and $106,628 during the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively, which shows a $48,376 or 45.4% increase by comparing with the same period of 2022.

 

Research and development expenses of $155,004 for three months ended September 30, 2023. The Company’s research and develop results include but are not limited to the following:

 

As one of the leading service providers in China’s 5G communication field, Datasea has several primary products and services targeting different customers and needs, including 5G Integrated Messaging Marketing Cloud Platform (“5G IMMCP”), Smart Push (precision marketing solution) and 5G messaging Top Up business related applications applicable to various industries in China. Together with artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and data analytic capability, our Acoustics and 5G intelligent products and solutions are able to serve more than 48.42 million enterprises and businesses of all types (over 99% are SMEs) and households in China with digital and intelligent services.

 

Leveraging Datasea’s cutting-edge intelligent acoustics technology together with AI technology, we successfully developed a series of ultrasonic disinfection products named the “Hailijia” series air sterilizer products. This lineup includes solutions tailored for indoor (desktop and floor), car use, bathroom and cloakroom sterilization and deodorizer, positioned in the health field of acoustic disinfection, can be widely used in homes and different public places, including offices, educational institutions, transportation, hospitals, etc. We started to launch those new products in the China market in the year of 2023. These products can provide more effective solutions for purifying the environment and protecting health for people. Leading labs such as the Wuhan Institute of Virology have proven this ultrasonic disinfection technology to have 99.83% efficacy in nine seconds against Covid-19 and 99.99% efficacy against Staphylococcus Albus and E-col. Meanwhile, this strategic transformation and process not only provide safer and healthier lifestyles for Chinese users, but also for users in the United States and globally.

General and administration expenses decreased $191,900, or 21.7% from $884,960 during the three months ended September 30, 2022 to $693,060 during the three months ended September 30, 2023. The decrease was mainly attributed to decreased rent expense by $113,819, and decreased consulting and director compensation by $123,741, which was partly offset by increased travel expense by $21,833 and increased other G&A expenses by $23,827.

  

The Company has more accurate and scientific management methods in personnel costs and risk control. We take human capital as a key indicator to promote business growth and technological innovation by improving efficiency. By downsizing the numbers of non-core position staff, the Company manages to control expenses, while does not affect the work efficiency and efficiency in any way. At the same time the Company strives to pursue better integration channel with related industries, i.e., outsourcing sales branch for Acoustic products and establishing joint venture to obtain the investment to 5G messaging technology area.

  

We are treating the human capital as a key indicator to drive the business growth and technical innovation, also pursuing better integrated channels with related industries.

 

Non-Operating Income (Expenses), net

 

Non-operating expenses were $7,758 for the three months ended September 30, 2023, consisting mainly of interest income of $106 and other expenses of $7,864. Non-operating expenses were $1,175 for the three months ended September 30, 2022, consisting mainly of interest income of $64 and other expenses of $1,239. 

 

Net (Income) Loss from Discontinued Operation

 

We generated net income from discontinued operation of $ 833,546, which was the gain on disposal of Zhangxun, and net loss of $337,062 for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively.  

 

Net Loss from continuing operation

 

We generated net losses from continuing operation of $855,602 and $1,102,020 for the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively, a $246,418 or 22.4% decrease by comparing with the same period of 2022. The decrease in net loss was mainly due to the decrease in operating expenses and increased gross profit as explained above.  

 

Accounts receivable

 

The operating revenue of the three months ended September 30, 2023 was $6,880,743, the balance of accounts receivable was $22,158 at September 30, 2023. In the same period last year, the operating revenue was $nil, and the accounts receivable balance was $155,280 at September 30, 2022. This quarter, the Company further segmented the market, planned eight regional headquarters, strengthened the collection control, and promoted the fund collection of contracted delivery projects, which led to the benign return of funds and had a far-reaching impact on the future.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

Historically, we have funded our operations primarily through the sale of our common stock and shareholder loans. To enhance our ability to continue to operate as a going concern, we are dedicating resources to generate recurring revenues and sustainable operating cash flows.

 

We expect to generate revenues through expanding our current 5G messaging and acoustic intelligence business, and through continuous product innovation and development as well as various types of value-added services. In order to maintain working capital sufficient to support our operations and finance the future growth of our business, we expect to fund any cash flow shortfall through financial support from our majority stockholders (who are also our board members or officers) and public or private issuance of securities. However, such additional cash resources may not be available to us on desirable terms, or at all, if and when needed by us.

 

41

 

 

As of September 30, 2023, we had a working capital of $3,442,072 or a current ratio of 1.77:1, and our current assets were $7,911,853. As of June 30, 2023, we had a working capital deficit of $3,617,058 or a current ratio of 0.26:1. Our current assets were $1,289,517.

 

We expect the Company to continue to support its ongoing operations and financing through revenue growth and increased financing activities. However, there is no assurance that the Company will be able to secure such additional working capital on commercially viable terms or at all. 

 

The following is a summary of cash provided by or used in each of the indicated types of activities during the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, respectively.

Analysis of several index

 

For three months ended September 30, 2023 and September 30, 2022, the Company’s revenue was $6,880,743 and $nil respectively. This is mainly due to the Company’s self-developed 5G SMS call pricing and traffic recharge supply platform, which has assisted in the digital transformation and upgrading of enterprises in the Chinese market. And the Company seized the market opportunity, based on this platform, newly developed 5G top up business and made breakthrough progress. At present, the newly added business is steadily growing and has broad prospects for the future.

 

For three months ended September 30, 2023 and September 30, 2022, the Company’s sales expenses were $84,447 and $104,114 respectively, a decrease of $19,667 over the previous year, with a decline rate of 18.89%. This is mainly due to the Company strengthening budget control of sales expenses, analyzing the market, products, and sales targets, reasonably setting various expense budgets, and strengthening monitoring of budget execution, timely adjusting and optimizing. At the same time, it is also due to the strengthening of the expense approval process, strict control of sales expenses, setting clear accounting periods and approval standards, and strengthening supervision of the expense reimbursement process to prevent unnecessary expense expenditures.

 

For three months ended September 30, 2023 and September 30, 2022, the Company’s management expenses were $693,060 and $884,960 respectively, a decrease of $191,900 over the previous year, with a decline rate of 21.68%. This is mainly due to the Company’s detailed management expense budget plan, including budget and control objectives for various management expenses, as well as corresponding control measures, which has increased the granularity of management expense management. At the same time, the process has been streamlined, reducing management expenses by simplifying the process and reducing unnecessary links. Moreover, the management structure has been optimized and the organizational structure has been adjusted to improve management efficiency and reduce management expenses.

 

As of September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023, the Company’s cash balance was $1,218,748 and $19,728, respectively, an increase of $1,199,020 or 60.78 times compared to the previous year. Mainly due to the increased demand for the Company’s products and services, which has led to an increase in sales revenue, and the expansion of financing channels, which has led to multiple capital inflows, the Company has optimized its asset structure and enhanced its financial capacity and liquidity.

 

As of September 30, 2023 and June 30, 2023, the balance of capital reserve was $32,194,070 and $24,122,973, respectively, an increase of $8,071,097 over the previous year, with a growth rate of 33.46%, mainly due to the increase in the issuance of shares by the Company. An increase in stock issuance can provide the Company with more capital reserves and help them cope with future challenges. For the Company, this stock issuance has introduced a large amount of high-quality funds, which is conducive to the integration of upstream and downstream enterprises and can promote the Company’s performance growth.

This item is not applicable as we are currently considered a smaller reporting company.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As required by Rule 13a-15 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer evaluated our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) or 15d-15(e) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended) as of the end of the period covered by this report. Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer concluded that as of the end of the period covered by this report, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective. This conclusion was reached in light of the following material weaknesses in internal control over financial reporting:

 

(i)inadequate segregation of duties and effective risk assessment;

 

(ii)lack of personnel adequately trained in U.S. GAAP; and

 

(iii)insufficient written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting with respect to the requirements and application of both U.S. GAAP and SEC guidelines.

 

Management’s Strategies for Enhancing Internal Control:

 

In the previous fiscal year, we recognized the weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting and have taken proactive steps to enhance and refine our internal control framework. These initiatives primarily include:

 

1.Continuous Improvement of Internal Control Procedures: We remain committed to refining our internal control processes, encompassing various aspects such as the budget approval process, procurement and asset management, credit control, internal audits, and cost accounting. Additionally, we have compiled a comprehensive internal control policy, incorporating guidelines for procurement control, inventory management, and fraud prevention.

 

2.Collaborative Oversight Mechanism: To strengthen internal control implementation, we have established a collaborative mechanism between the internal control department and the legal department. This mechanism involves conducting interviews with department heads, promptly addressing identified risk areas, and ensuring corrective actions are taken.

 

3.Engagement with Financing Underwriters: We have engaged financing underwriters to work closely with our international department to facilitate the company’s financing efforts. This partnership aims to improve our understanding of investor backgrounds and identify financing methods that align best with our objectives.

 

4.Enhanced Collaboration with Legal Professionals: We are reinforcing collaboration between our internal and external legal teams to proactively mitigate risks.

 

In addition to these efforts, we have adopted various internal control policies, including the review of accounting personnel duties and responsibilities, travel allowances, reimbursement procedures, receivable management, asset control, internal audit processes, and cost accounting. Furthermore, we have established an internal audit department under the leadership of a director of internal audit, along with a legal team, to ensure compliance and effective risk management.

 

Further Enhancements Include:

 

5.Personnel Training: We are committed to training our staff to ensure the proper execution of internal control policies and procedures.

 

6.Regular Reporting to the Audit Committee: We will continue to provide quarterly summaries of internal control and audit reports to the Audit Committee.

 

7.Quarterly Review with U.S. CPA: Each quarter, we will conduct a trial balance review in collaboration with a U.S. Certified Public Accountant (CPA) after their review or audit.

 

Specifically we have also implemented the following practices to enhance Datasea featured internal control system:

 

1. Projects Pre-approval:

 

We have carried out project development at irregular intervals according to the needs of business development. Before the project is officially initiated, we have organized the setup of the project review group. The project review group has mainly reviewed the project’s market development prospect report, project proposal, project report and other documentations that are prepared by the project development team. After communication and discussion by the review team, the project will be formally approved.

 

45

 

 

2. Significant Issues: 

Significant issues will go through meetings of the President’s Office. During those meetings, the Company’s strategic adjustments of the business and major projects or events will be discussed. Only after the board meeting or the resolution of the board of directors, the decisions will be implemented in accordance with the meetings.

 

3. HR Management, Responsibility, Rewards and Penalties System:

 

We have strict control over talents and their efficiency, from the probation period to the conversion to regular employees. After the employees passing the strict evaluation, they will be included in the regular employees pool and sign the job responsibility letter and performance commitment letter. They will go through monthly performance assessment and evaluation as the basis for salary settlement. We will give rewards to employees with excellent performance from time to time, and the rewards are not limited to cash and stocks. We also gives certain penalty measures for employees’ work mistakes, such as deduction of performance-based salary.

 

4. Budget Management:

 

The internal control department organizes all departments to participate in the full budget formulation and budget implementation, and comprehensively develop and implement the annual full budget data according to funds, assets, project initiation, business line revenue, and costs. The internal control center strictly controls the budget. The execution department, the finance department, the CEO and the chairman of the board jointly approve and execute the budget. In the process of budget implementation, we adopt the monthly rolling budget system, and the Group financial management internal control center makes statistical analysis of the implementation results to help each business unit complete the performance targets and strive to achieve the annual target of the Group company.

 

5. Operation Management:

 

We combine centralized and decentralized management styles according to the business line types and operating characteristics of each subsidiary of the group. We will give our subsidiaries certain management rights so that we will not miss any business opportunities. In terms of production and operation, from project initiation, procurement to sales, we have a complete control process. For example, before purchasing, we need to look around in the market and select high-quality suppliers after the audit of the group’s financial management internal control center. We are willing to build long-term stable and friendly cooperation with high-quality suppliers. We will develop a complete process from the product check-in to check-out. After the approval of all parties, the procedure of product check-out will be completed to avoid risks.

 

6. Business Development Personnel Management:

 

For excellent business development personnel, we formulate relevant royalty management measures with comprehensive considerations about different lines of business, different products combined with different market conditions. We distribute salary and bonus according to performance. Business development personnel who successfully complete the sales target can get generous remuneration. These measures actively motivate business development personnel to complete the group’s annual performance goals.

 

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Other than as described above, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ending September 30, 2023 that have materially affected or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.
