  • Revenue increased by 21.2% to $2.71 million for the first half of 2020, primarily attributable to an increased average commission rate for primary real estate agency services.

  • Operating expenses decreased by 5.8% to $2.63 million for the first half of 2020. The decrease was primarily related to decreased professional fees and operating lease expenses that more than offset the increase in payroll.

  • Operating profit margin was 3.0% for the first half of 2020, compared to the operating loss margin of 24.9% for the same period of last year.

  • Net income attributable to ordinary shareholders was $0.13 million, or earnings per share of $0.01, for the first half of 2020, compared to a net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders of $0.51 million, or a net loss per share of $0.04, for the same period of last year.

Mr. Siping Xu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, "With revenue increasing by 21.2% year-over-year and the return to profitability, our first half of 2020 financial results underscore continued strength in our primary real estate agency services business despite the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our geographical expansion plan also continued to make progress with the Chengdu, Suzhou, and Yangzhou markets contributing over 40% of our total revenue in the first half of 2020. Looking ahead, we are cautiously optimistic about the second half of the year as the Chinese economy, particularly its housing market, recovers from the pandemic."

First Half of 2020 Financial Results

Revenue

For the first half of 2020, revenue increased by $0.48 million, or 21.2%, to $2.71 million from $2.23 million for the same period of last year. The increase of revenue was primarily attributable to an increased average commission rate for primary real estate agency services. Primary real estate agency services and consulting and other services accounted for 98.2% and 1.8% of revenue, respectively, for the first half of 2020, compared to 96.2% and 3.8%, respectively, for the same period of last year. On a geographical basis, revenue from primary real estate agency services in Tianjin, Chengdu, Suzhou, and Yangzhou accounted for 59%, 35%, 4%, and 2% of the primary real estate agency service revenue, respectively, for the first half of 2020, compared to 90%, 0%, 4%, and 6%, respectively, for the same period of last year.

Selling expenses decreased by $0.05 million, or 65.0%, to $0.03 million for the first half of 2020 from $0.08 million for the same period of last year. The decrease in selling expenses was attributable to decreased marketing planning fees during the pandemic.

Payroll, payroll taxes and others increased by $0.19 million, or 10.2%, to $2.03 million for the first half of 2020 from $1.84 million for the same period of last year. Our employee compensation was in connection with the sales performance. Sales related compensation, such as bonuses and commission, increased due to the increase in the amount of sales in the first half of 2020.

Professional fees were $0.31 million for the first half of 2020, compared to $0.53 for the same period of last year. Professional fees consist of attorney, audit, investor relationship, consulting, and other expenses. The decrease in professional fees was due to the Company incurring certain one-time professional fees associated with its Nasdaq listing and initial public offering in the first half of 2019.

Operating lease expenses decreased by $0.07 million, or 54.2%, to $0.06 million for the first half of 2020 from $0.12 million for the same period of last year. Currently, the Company has one long-term lease, which became effective on January 1, 2019, and will expire on December 31, 2023.

Depreciation and amortization expenses were $10,543 for the first half of 2020, compared to $6,178 for the same period of last year. The increase in depreciation and amortization expenses resulted from new purchases of fixed assets of $66,354 in the second half of 2019.

Allowance for doubtful accounts, net was $0.03 million for the first half of 2020, compared to $nil for the period of last year.

Other general and administrative expenses decreased by $0.05 million, or 22.3%, to $0.17 million for the first half of 2020 from $0.22 million for the same period of last year.

As a result, total operating expenses decreased by $0.16 million, or 5.8%, to $2.63 million for the first half of 2020 from $2.79 million for the same period of last year.

Operating Income (Loss)

Income from operations was $0.08 million for the first half of 2020, compared to a loss from operations of $0.56 million for the same period of last year.

The operating profit margin was 3.0% for the first half of 2020, compared to the operating loss margin of 24.9% for the same period of last year. The improvement in operating margin was a combined result of the increased revenue and decreased operating expenses as above mentioned.

Other Income

Total other income, including government grants, interest income, and other income (expenses), was $55,566 for the first half of 2020, compared to $3,811 for the same period of last year.

Income (Loss) before Income Tax

The Company incurred income tax of $10,429 for the first half of 2020, compared to $13,224 for the same period of last year.

Net Income (Loss)

Net income was $0.13 million for the first half of 2020, compared to a net loss of $0.57 million for the same period of last year. After deduction of noncontrolling interest, net income attributable to ordinary shareholders was $0.13 million, or earnings per share of $0.01, for the first half of 2020, compared to a net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders of $0.51 million, or a net loss per share of $0.04, for the first half of last year.

Account receivable was $3.11 million as of June 30, 2020, compared to $2.16 million as of December 31, 2019.

Net cash used in operating activities was $0.26 million for the first half of 2020, compared to $0.64 million for the same period of last year. Net cash used in investing activities was $1,722 for the first half of 2020, compared to net cash provided by investing activities of $3,389 for the same period of last year. Net cash provided by financing activities was $nil for the first half of 2020, compare to $0.07 million for the first half of last year.

Recent Developments

Because of the quarantines and travel restrictions mandated by the Chinese government in response to COVID-19, from the end of January to mid-March of 2020, many real estate projects the Company was promoting and selling were suspended, which adversely impacted its business during that period. However, because the Company's operating income and earnings have historically been lower during the first quarter than other quarters due to the winter and the Chinese New Year holiday period, the Company believes this seasonality partially mitigated the adverse impact on its full-year operating results. Starting from the end of March 2020, these real estate projects began to reopen. Although the Company believes its operations have resumed to the level before the COVID-19 outbreak starting from April 2020 and even though it currently expects to continue the promotion and sales of real estate projects as it typically did before the COVID-19 outbreak, it is not currently possible to determine the future development of the COVID-19 outbreak and further impact of COVID-19 on the Company's operations. If a second wave of COVID-19 cases were to occur in the autumn and winter seasons, it could have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, results of operations, financial condition, and cash flows.
