    They seriously just put out a press release and thats what the give. This movie gross Domestic: $5,133,027 26.1% + Foreign: $14,500,000 73.9%. Now how much did they pay for the rights or what is their percentage split with the production company. Who is going to handle the logistics of placing this movie in every theater and what is their percentage or fees. For claiming they want to be in the digital space why even place this movie in the theater this should stay with China Mobile. I cant say this will make any money but it could be a step in the right direction.

    FAB Recent Job Postings -- Confused

    At first I was assumed as the FAB recently stated in their last fillings that they are abandoning their retail endeavors to focus on digital. So why would they be opening 300 “shops”?

    From: 10-K: “Therefore, FAB decided to transform our retail business model from traditional retail stores to Online to Offline (O2O) experience stores, providing e-commerce companies with comprehensive offline services such as product exhibition and demonstration, online and mobile shopping demonstration, offline promotion, and entertainment based sales and marketing activities.”

    Confusing Parts

    -- Beijing Cultural Development Co., Ltd. Hongda is not listed anywhere as a subsidiary of FAB, FAB Media, or DEI or anywhere else in their 10K. Though they list FAB shopping website in the post? How are they affiliated?

    -- FAB lists above they are going to focus on Online to Offline (O2O). The O2O platform is listed in the job post as “Taobao” though Taobao is Aliaba’s. FAB announced they partnered with Badiu though nothing about ali. Did the buy just the platform? Why is that not listed anywhere?

    -- Where are these 30 “stores” that have already opened?

    -- What 2016 “public offering”?

    -- That’s a fairly bold statement when you currently have on ~20M in revenue to claim 10B sales

    Im traveling this weekend though I will do some more research next week. This would be so much easier if they had any regard for their shareholders as their lack of communication is extremely unprofessional. I still haven’t heard back from the company to obtain a copy of their bylaws so I wrote the Colorado Secretary of State for guidance and clarification.

  • Researching New job postings I found this from Beijing Cultural Development Co., Ltd. Hongda wonderful unlimited. At the end of the job posting it has this listed as Company Profile:

  • Well the articles or incorporation and the company bylaws used to be on the website but they are no longer there; along with any other information on that bare-boned website. (Errr ... Why is the China website still down?)

    Ive written the company and asked for a copy of them as I read the bylaws awhile ago and I remember their shareholder proposal requirements weren't that stringent for adding agenda items. I do remember a statement that no member of executive team or BOD should act in manner that would present a conflict of interest towards FAB or is grounds for dismissal. I remember laughing as simultaneously being the CEO of two separate company's probably constitutes a "conflict of interest."

    Ive also asked about the shareholder meeting. FAB is incorporated in Colorado and as expected from the Colorado Secretary of State website, " Corporations have the strictest internal requirements, including holding initial and annual director and shareholder meetings, adopting and maintaining updated bylaws ..."

    Once I get the bylaws (Though I seriously doubt they will respond) I will get them posted.

    All of the emails address are valid though ive only received responses from the fab ones.

    johnatfabuniversaldotcom - CFO
    laurieatfabuniversaldotcom - OPS - Supposedly listed as contact as for investor relations though I think he is the mail clerk.
