Entire Document


Seven Stars Cloud Group, Inc., Its Subsidiaries and Variable Interest Entities


100% of the revenue and gross profit from Wide Angle in the calculation of the SVG Performance Guarantees set forth in the Sun Video SPA considering the Company has consolidated Wide Angle.


Since the Company, Wecast Services and Wide Angle were controlled by our Chairman Bruno Wu since November 10, 2016, as well as both before and after the acquisition, this transaction was accounted for as a business combination between entities under common control by Mr. Wu. Therefore, in accordance with ASC Subtopic 805-50, the consolidated financial statements of the Company include the acquired assets and liabilities of the SVG and Wide Angle at their historical carrying amounts. In addition, the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2016 have been prepared as if the Wecast Services and Wide Angle had been owned by the Company since November 10, 2016 presented and the Company’s consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2016 has been retrospectively adjusted accordingly.


As of June 30, 2017, the Company recorded the $50 million SVG Note as additional paid in capital, as the Company believes that the Performance Guarantees can be met within 12 months of the closing. Considering the proceeds transferred were larger than carrying amounts of the net assets received, such $50 million was then recognized as a reduction to the Company’s additional paid in capital. The Company has not begun accruing any reserves relating to potential Net Income Threshold earnout payments, since the Sun Video Business is currently not close to exceeding this threshold.
