Report of Independent Certified
Public Accountants

 

Board of Directors

Wecast Services Group Limited

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated financial statements of Wecast Services Group Limited and its subsidiaries (the "Group"), which comprise the consolidated balance sheets as of December 31, 2015 and 2016, and the related consolidated statements of Comprehensive income, changes in shareholders’ equity, and cash flows for the years then ended, and the related notes to the consolidated financial statements.

 

Management’s responsibility for the financial statements

Management is responsible for the preparation and fair presentation of these consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America; this includes the design, implementation, and maintenance of internal control relevant to the preparation and fair presentation of consolidated financial statements that are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.

 

Auditor’s responsibility

Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits. We conducted our audits in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States of America. Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free from material misstatement.

 

An audit involves performing procedures to obtain audit evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. The procedures selected depend on the auditor’s judgment, including the assessment of the risks of material misstatement of the consolidated financial statements, whether due to fraud or error. In making those risk assessments, the auditor considers internal control relevant to the entity’s preparation and fair presentation of the consolidated financial statements in order to design audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the entity’s internal control. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes evaluating the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall presentation of the consolidated financial statements.

 

 1

 

 

We believe that the audit evidence we have obtained is sufficient and appropriate to provide a basis for our audit opinion.

 

Opinion

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Group as of December 31, 2016 and 2015, and the results of their operations and their cash flows for the years then ended in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

 

Emphasis of matter

The accompanying consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Group will continue as a going concern. As discussed in note 2 to the consolidated financial statements, the Group incurred recurring losses from operations, has net current liabilities and an accumulated deficit that raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. Management’s plans in regard to these matters are also described in note 2. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Organization and description of business

 

Wecast Service Group Limited., formerly known as Sun Music Group Hong Kong Holdings Limited., is an investment holding company which was incorporated in Hong Kong on December 23, 2015. The registered capital is 10,000 HKD which was 100% held by Sun Seven Stars Group Ltd.

 

On May 26, 2016, Sun Music Group Hong Kong Holdings Ltd. changed name to Sun Video Group Hong Kong Limited. ("SVG"). On December 22, 2016, BT Capital Global Ltd., a Hong Kong company ("BT"), which was controlled by Seven Stars Cloud Group, Inc.’s ("SSC") chairman Bruno Wu, acquired 100% of SVG’s equity. SSC was formerly known as Wecast Network, Inc. On January 30, 2017, BT transferred all the equity interest of SVG to YOU On Demand (Asia) Ltd., a Hong Kong company and wholly- owned subsidiary of SSC. On March 15, 2017, SVG changed name to Wecast Service Ltd. On April 10, 2017, it renamed as Wecast Service Group Ltd. ("the Company").

 

On July 26, 2016, the Company purchased 100% equity interest of M.Y. Products Global Ltd., which was the wholly-owned subsidiary of Wide Angle Press Limited, a Hong Kong company and wholly- owned subsidiary of BT.

 

Shanghai Blue World Investment Management Consulting Ltd. ("SVG WFOE") was incorporated on October 14, 2004. The registered capital was $0.6 million, which was 100% held by Sun Media Investment Holding Ltd. On June 2, 2005, it was transferred to M.Y. Products Global Holding Ltd., which was incorporated in British Virgin Islands on March 22, 2001. On October 13, 2016, M.Y. Products Global Holding Ltd., along with its subsidiary SVG WFOE became the wholly-owned subsidiary of M.Y. Products Global Ltd.

 

Shanghai Wecast Supply Chain Management Ltd. ("Shanghai Wecast") was founded on March 26, 2015 with CNY 2 million registered capital. It was acquired by SVG WFOE on August 1, 2016.

 

On August 1, 2016, Shanghai Wecast acquired M.Y. Products, LLC ("MYP") through Vaughn Richard Miller and Long Yu. As consideration, Long Yu should maintain at least 49% ownership interest in Shanghai Wecast by contributing 1.92 million CNY capital. Furthermore, Miller would hold 20% out of his 49% equity on behalf of Long Yu as agreed.

Presentation and principles of consolidation

The Company prepares and presents its consolidated financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“U.S. GAAP”). The consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of the Company and its subsidiaries (the "Group"). All inter-company transactions and balances have been eliminated in consolidation.

 

Since the Company and the acquired subsidiaries, besides Shanghai Wecast and MYP, were commonly controlled by Mr. Wu before acquisition as of December 31, 2014, therefore, although the Company was incorporated on December 23, 2015, in accordance with ASC Subtopic 805-50, the consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared as if the acquired subsidiaries had been owned by the Company since inception of common control, which was earlier than December 31, 2014. Results of operations for 2015 thus comprise those of the previously separate subsidiaries combined from the beginning of 2015 to the date the acquisition was completed which was no later than July 31, 2016.

 

Shanghai Wecast and MYP were acquired from third party at August 1, 2016 with no consideration. The consolidated financial statements of the Company include the acquired assets and liabilities of Shanghai Wecast and MYP at their historical carrying amounts and results of operations from August 1 to December 31 of 2016.

Note 1 - Operations and significant accounting policies (continued)

 

Use of estimates

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (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. Such estimates include, but are not limited to, revenue recognition, impairment and allowances of trade receivable, inventory valuation, useful life of property and equipment, employee benefit accruals, income taxes and fair value measurements. Actual results could differ materially from those estimates.

 

Cash

Cash consists primarily of highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less. Cash is carried at cost which approximates market value.

 

Accounts receivable, net

Accounts receivable are recognized at invoiced amounts and do not bear interest. The Group maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts for estimated losses resulting from the inability of its customers to make required payments. The Group reviews its allowance for doubtful accounts receivable on an ongoing basis. In establishing the required allowance, management considers any historical losses, the customer’s financial condition, the accounts receivable aging, and the customer’s payment patterns. After all attempts to collect a receivable have failed and the potential for recovery is remote, the receivable is written off against the allowance.

 

There was no allowance for accounts receivable as of December 31, 2015 and 2016.

 

Inventories

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market value. Cost of inventories is calculated using FIFO. The Group periodically assesses the recoverability of all inventories to determine whether adjustments are required to record inventory at the lower of cost or market value. Inventory that the Group determines to be obsolete are reduced to its estimated realizable value based on assumptions about future demand and market conditions. If actual demand is lower than the forecasted demand, additional inventory write-downs may be required.

 

There were no write-downs for inventories recognized as of December 31, 2015 and 2016.

Note 1 - Operations and significant accounting policies (continued)

 

Property and equipment, net

Property and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Expenditures for major renewals and improvements, which extend the original estimated economic useful lives of applicable assets, are capitalized. Expenditures for normal repairs and maintenance are charged to expense as incurred. The costs and related accumulated depreciation of assets sold or retired are removed from the accounts and any gain or loss thereon is recognized in the consolidated statement of operations. Depreciation is provided for on a straight-line basis or double declining balance method over the estimated useful lives of the respective assets. The estimated useful lives of the assets are as follows:

 

   Useful lives
    
Furniture and office equipment  3-10 years
Vehicles    5 years
Leasehold Improvement  35 months

 

Intangible assets, net

 

Intangible assets, which consist primarily of software, patent and trademarks, are valued at cost less accumulated amortization. Amortization is computed using the straight line method over their expected useful lives of 3 (software and others) or 15 years (patent and trademarks).

 

Impairment of long-lived assets

Long-lived assets such as property and equipment and intangible assets subject to amortization are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in the circumstances indicate that the carrying value of an asset may not be recoverable. When these events occur, the Group assesses the recoverability of the long-lived assets by comparing the carrying amount to the estimated future undiscounted cash flows associated from the use of the asset and its eventual disposition, and recognize an impairment of long-lived assets when the carrying value of such assets exceeds the estimated future undiscounted cash flows such assets is expected to generate. If the Group recognizes an impairment, the Group reduces the carrying amount of the assets group to its estimated fair value based on a discounted cash flow approach or, when available and appropriate, to comparable market values.

 

There was no impairment charge for long-lived assets recognized as of December 31, 2015 and 2016.

Revenue recognition

 

Revenue is recognized when the following criteria under FASB ASC 605 “Revenue Recognition” are met:

 

1)Persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists;

 

2)Delivery has occurred or services have been rendered (the risks, rewards and ownership of the products are transferred to customers); and

 

3)The seller’s price to the buyer is fixed or determinable; and

 

4)Collectability is reasonably assured.

 

Revenue is measured at the fair value of the consideration received or receivable and is shown net of discounts, rebates, returns and sales-related taxes. Revenue is recognized in profit or loss provided it is probable that the economic benefits will flow to the Group and the revenue and costs, if applicable, can be measured reliably, as follows:

 

For goods sale, the Group’s revenues are recognized when goods are received and accepted by customers.

 

Consultancy fee income is recognized when the services have been rendered.

 

The Group generates revenue mainly from sales of goods. The Group purchases skateboards from its suppliers and sells them through e-commence platforms, like Amazon, eBay. After receiving the skateboards, the Group becomes the first responsible party for the goods. The Group is required to bear the direct risk of damage to the goods and the direct default risk that cannot be delivered to the customer.

 

In accordance with ASC 605-45, Revenue Recognition – Principal Agent Consideration, the Group accounts for revenue from sales of goods on a gross basis. The Group is the primary obligor in the arrangements, the Group has the ability to establish prices, the Group has discretion in selecting the independent suppliers, and the Group bears credit risk with customer payments. Accordingly, all such revenue billed to customers is classified as revenue and all corresponding payments to suppliers are classified as cost.

Note 1 - Operations and significant accounting policies (continued)

 

Income Taxes

 

The Company and Wecast Supply(HK) are incorporated in Hong Kong and are subject to statutory income tax on its Hong Kong sourced income (of which there are none). The statutory income tax rate in Hong Kong is 16.5%. MYP Global and MYP Holding are incorporated in the British Virgin Islands and are not subject to tax in this jurisdiction. MYP is incorporated in the US and is subject to statutory income tax on its worldwide sourced income. SVG WFOE and Shanghai Wecast are PRC companies. The statutory income tax rate applicable to PRC companies is 25%.

 

The Group accounts for income taxes in accordance with the asset and liability method. Deferred taxes are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial statement purposes and income tax purposes using enacted rates expected to be in effect when such amounts are realized or settled. The effect on deferred taxes of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date. A valuation allowance is established, as needed to reduce the amount of deferred tax assets if it is considered more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized.

 

The Group recognizes the effect of income tax positions only if those positions are more likely than not of being sustained. Recognized income tax positions are measured at the largest amount that is greater than 50% likely of being realized. Changes in recognition or measurement are reflected in the period in which the change in judgment occurs.

 

Foreign Currency Translation

 

The financial records of the Group’s subsidiaries are maintained in their local currencies. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than their local currencies are translated into local currencies at the rates of exchange in effect at the balance sheet dates. Transactions denominated in currencies other than their local currencies during the year are converted into local currencies at the applicable rates of exchange prevailing when the transactions occur. Transaction gains and losses are recorded in other income/ (expense), net in the statements of income.

 

The reporting currency of the Group is the United States dollar (“US dollar”). When translating local financial reports of the Group’s subsidiaries into US dollar, assets and liabilities are translated at the exchange rates at the balance sheet date, equity accounts are translated at historical exchange rates and revenue, expenses, gains and losses are translated at the average rate for the period. Translation adjustments are reported as cumulative translation adjustments and are shown as a separate component of other comprehensive income in the statements of income and comprehensive income.

 

Comprehensive income (loss)

 

Comprehensive income (loss) is defined as the change in equity during a period from transactions and other events and circumstances from non-owner sources. Comprehensive loss was the sum of the Group’s net loss and exchange difference arising on translation for all periods presented.

In May 2014, Financial Accounting Standards Board (or “FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Updates (or “ASU”) 2014-09, “Revenue from Contracts with Customers” (Topic 606). This guidance supersedes current guidance on revenue recognition in Topic 605, Revenue Recognition. In addition, there are disclosure requirements related to the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue recognition. In August 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-14 to defer the effective date of ASU 2014-09 for all entities by one year. For public business entities that follow U.S. GAAP, the deferral results in the new revenue standard are being effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2017, with early adoption permitted for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016. In May 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-12 Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients. The amendments in this Update do not change the core principle of the guidance in Topic 606. Rather, the amendments in this Update affect only the narrow aspects of Topic 606. The areas improved include: (1) Assessing the Collectability Criterion in Paragraph 606-10-25-1(e) and Accounting for Contracts That Do Not Meet the Criteria for Step 1; (2) Presentation of Sales Taxes and Other Similar Taxes Collected from Customers; (3) Noncash Consideration; (4) Contract Modifications at Transition; (5) Completed Contracts at Transition; and (6) Technical Correction. The effective date and transition requirements for the amendments in this Update are the same as the effective date and transition requirements for Topic 606 (and any other Topic amended by Update 2014-09). The Group is planning to adopt the above standards on January 1, 2018. The Group may use either a full retrospective or a modified retrospective approach to adopt this standard. The Group is currently evaluating this standard and the related updates, including which transition approach to use as well as the impact of adoption on policies, practices and systems. The standard also requires the Group to evaluate whether businesses promise to transfer services to the customer itself (as a principal) or to arrange for services to be provided by another party (as an agent). To make that determination, the standard uses a control model rather than the risks-and-rewards model in current U.S. GAAP. At this stage in the evaluation, the Group does not anticipate that the new guidance will have a material impact on revenue recognition policies, practices or systems. The Group is currently evaluating the impact of this standard to its consolidated financial statements upon adoption.

 

In July 2015, the FASB issued ASU 2015-11 as part of its simplification initiative. The ASU changes the way of measurement on inventory, which currently requires an entity to measure inventory at the lower of cost or market. The amendments in this Update require an entity to measure inventory within the scope of this Update at the lower of cost and net realizable value. Effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those fiscal years. For all other entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017. A reporting entity should apply the amendments prospectively with earlier application permitted as of the beginning of an interim or annual reporting period. The Group does not expect a material impact on consolidated financial statement upon adoption of this ASU.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements (continued)

 

In January 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-01 "Financial Instruments-Overall (Subtopic 825-10): Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities". ASU 2016-01 amends various aspects of the recognition, measurement, presentation, and disclosure for financial instruments. With respect to consolidated financial statements, the most significant impact relates to the recognition and measurement for warrant liabilities. Additionally, ASU 2016-01 will impact the disclosure and presentation of financial assets and liabilities. ASU 2016-01 is effective for annual reporting periods, and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2017. Early adoption by public entities is permitted only for certain provisions. Management is currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of this standard on consolidated financial statements.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02 which amends the FASB Accounting Standards Codification and created Topic 842, "Leases". Under Topic 842, lessees are required to recognize assets and liabilities on the balance sheet for most leases and provides for enhanced disclosures. Leases will continue to be classified as either finance or operating. ASU 2016-02 is effective for annual reporting periods, and interim periods within those years beginning after December 15, 2018. Entities are required to use a modified retrospective approach for leases that exist or are entered into after the beginning of the earliest comparative period in the financial statements. Full retrospective application is prohibited and early adoption by public entities is permitted. Management is currently evaluating the impact of the adoption of this standard on consolidated financial statements.

 

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, “Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326)”. The pronouncement changes the impairment model for most financial assets, and will require the use of an “expected loss” model for instruments measured at amortized cost. Under this model, entities will be required to estimate the lifetime expected credit loss on such instruments and record an allowance to offset the amortized cost basis of the financial asset, resulting in a net presentation of the amount expected to be collected on the financial asset. This pronouncement is effective for fiscal years, and for interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning after December 15, 2019. The Group does not expect a material impact to its consolidated financial statement upon adoption of this ASU.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements (continued)

 

In January 2017, FASB issued ASU 2017-01, “Business Combinations (Topic 805): Clarifying the Definition of a Business”. The update affects all companies and other reporting organizations that must determine whether they have acquired or sold a business. The definition of a business affects many areas of accounting including acquisitions, disposals, goodwill, and consolidation. The update is intended to help companies and other organizations evaluate whether transactions should be accounted for as acquisitions (or disposals) of assets or businesses. The update provides a more robust framework to use in determining when a set of assets and activities is a business, and also provides more consistency in applying the guidance, reduce the costs of application, and make the definition of a business more operable. For public companies, the update is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those periods. The guidance should be applied prospectively upon its effective date. The effect of ASU 2017-01 on the consolidated financial statements will be dependent on any future acquisitions.

 

Note 2 – Going Concern and Management’s Plans

 

For the years ended December 31, 2015 and 2016, the Group incurred losses from operations of approximately $0.03 million and $0.94 million, respectively, and we used cash for operations of approximately $0.00 million and $0.27 million, respectively. As of December 31, 2016, the Group had net current liabilities (current assets less current liabilities) of $1.27 million. Further, the Group had accumulated deficits of approximately $1.66 million as of December 31, 2016, respectively, due to recurring losses since our inception.

 

In the opinion of the directors of the Group, the Group is able to maintain itself as a going concern in the coming year by taking into consideration of the arrangements which include, but are not limited to, the directors of the Group continue to implement measures to tighten cost controls over various operating costs and expenses of the Group and its shareholders undertake to provide adequate funds to enable the Group to meet in full all their financial obligations as they fall due. Although the Group believes it has the ability to raise funds by issuing debt, additional financing may not be available to the Group on terms acceptable to the Group or at all or such resources may not be received in a timely manner.

 

These conditions raise substantial doubt about the Group’s ability to continue as a going concern. The consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that the Group will continue as a going concern and, accordingly, do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.
