Unaudited Financial Results for the First Six Months of Fiscal Year 2022

Total net revenues in the first six months of 2022 were US$25.06 million, representing a 36.97% period-over-period increase from US$18.30 million in the same period of 2021. The period-over-period increase in total net revenues were mainly attributed to the receipt of payment from a former customer.

Cost of revenues in the first six months of 2022 was US$10.82 million, representing a 14.55% period-over-period decrease from US$12.66 million in the same period of 2021. The period-over-period decrease in cost of revenues was mainly due to the impact of the lower inventory cost related to the utilization of the impaired inventories in our production.

Gross profit in the first six months of 2022 was US$14.24 million, compared to the gross profit of US$5.64 million in the same period of 2021.

Total operating expenses in the first six months of 2022 were US$24.59 million compared to US$10.58 million in the same period of 2021.

  • Selling expenses in the first six months of 2022 were US$1.68 million compared to US$0.59 million in the same period of 2021. The period-over-period increase in selling expenses was mainly caused by the increase of staff cost and advertising cost related to our cryptocurrency exchange business.
  • General and administrative expenses in the first six months of 2022 were US$22.90 million compared to US$9.99 million in the same period of 2021. The period-over-period increase in general and administrative expenses was mainly due to the combined impact of the increase in share-based compensation expenses and the increase of administrative cost related to our cryptocurrency exchange business.

Loss from operations in the first six months of 2022 was US$10.41 million compared to US$4.95 million in the same period of 2021.

Interest income in the first six months of 2022 was US$1.16 million compared to US$0.12 million in the same period of 2021. The period-over-period increase in interest income was mainly caused by the increase in the average cash balance from 2021 to 2022.

Other expense in the first six months of 2022 was US$0.39 million compared to US$1.15 million in the same period of 2021. The period-over-period decrease in other expense was mainly caused by the loss on fair value changes from short term investment in the six months ended June 30, 2022.

Net loss in the first six months of 2022 was US$10.92 million compared to US$4.26 million in the same period of 2021.
