Fiscal Year 2019 Financial Results

Revenues

We generate revenue from commodities trading business and used car leasing business.

Income from commodities trading business

In December 2019, we commenced our commodities trading business and we generated revenues from sales of commodity products and revenue from supply chain management consulting services.

In December 2019, we sold 55 tons of aluminum ingots to one customer and earned revenues of $100,427 from the sales of commodity products. There was no such revenue in fiscal year 2018.

We also launched supply chain management services to refer loans and distribute commodity products for our customers.

There was no such revenue in fiscal year 2018.

Income from used car leasing business

Income from used car leasing business was $1.83 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019, as compared with $0.49 for the fiscal year 2018. The increase was mainly driven by the increase in the number of our self-owned used luxurious cars from 6 as of December 31, 2018 to 11 as of December 31, 2019 and expansion of our car leasing business to more extended geographic areas such as Shanghai and Chengdu in 2019 which attracted increased number of contracts from 185 for the fiscal year 2018 to 1,067 for the fiscal year 2019.

Operating costs

Cost associated with commodities trading business

The cost associated with commodities trading business was $0.59 million for the fiscal year 2019, comprised of purchase costs of aluminum ingots of $0.10 million from one related party, and cost of supply chain fees of $0.49 million which was primarily charged by a related party who assisted us with loan recommendation services. We did not incur such costs for the fiscal year 2018.

Cost associated with used car leasing business

The cost associated with used car leasing business mainly consisted of depreciation expenses on operating lease assets and car related expenses arising from lease of cars. The cost associated with used car leasing business was $1.54 million, as compared with $0.07 million for the fiscal year 2018, representing an increase of $1.47 million.

Our depreciation expenses increased from $0.07 million for the fiscal year 2018 to $0.30 million for the fiscal year 2019, representing an increase of $0.23 million, or 315%. The increase was a result of our continuous investment in used luxurious cars from 6 cars as of December 31, 2018 to 11 cars as of December 31, 2019.

We incurred car-related expenses of $1.07 million for the fiscal year 2019 as we launched sub-lease of luxurious car business through leasing cars from both third parties and one related party, over which we owned 40% equity interest. We had no car related expenses for the fiscal year 2018.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses 

Selling, general and administrative expenses was $3.83 million for the fiscal year 2019, as compared with $2.47 million for the fiscal year 2018, representing an increase of $1.36 million, or 55%. Selling, general and administrative expenses primarily consisted of salary and employee benefits, office rental expense, business tax and surcharge, professional service fees, office supplies. The increase was mainly attributable to combined effects of an increase of salary and welfare expenses of $0.41 million as a result of increase of sales commissions to salespersons when we extended our car lease business to Shanghai and Chengdu market and when we started the commodity trading business in 2019, an increase of legal and consulting expenses of $0.76 million as a result of 1) issuance of 502,391 restricted shares as compensation to service providers, and 2) an increase in expenses incurred for the registered direct offerings in April and May 2019, including an increase of audit related fees of $0.16 million, an increase of commission of $0.1 million to a third party vendor for referral of underwriters.
