2. Going Concern and Management’s Plans
At March 31, 2020, the Company’s principal sources of liquidity were its cash and cash equivalents and the net proceeds from the sale of common stock during the first quarter of 2020.
The Company had an accumulated deficit of ($90,163,356) at March 31, 2020. During the three months ended March 31, 2020, the Company generated a net loss from continuing operations of ($1,422,000) and used cash in continuing operations of $574,000. At March 31, 2020, the Company had a cash balance of $1,555,000. Total revenues were approximately $982,000 and $1,307,000 for the three months ended March 31, 2020 and 2019. The Company had a working capital deficiency from continuing operations of approximately ($1,741,000) and ($2,114,000) at March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2019. These conditions raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent on the Company’s ability to further implement its business plan, raise capital, and generate revenues. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary if the Company is unable to continue as a going concern.
Management believes that its available cash on hand and cash flow from operations may not be sufficient to meet our working capital requirements for the twelve month period subsequent to the issuance of our financial statements. In order to accomplish our business plan objectives, the Company will need to continue its cost reduction efforts, increase revenues, raising capital through the issuance of common stock, or through a strategic merger or acquisition. However, there can be no assurances that our business plans and actions will be successful, that we will generate anticipated revenues, or that unforeseen circumstances will not require additional funding sources in the future or effectuate plans to conserve liquidity. Future efforts to improve liquidity through the issuance of our common stock may not be successful or they may not be available on acceptable terms, if at all. In addition, due to China’s foreign currency control, the Company cannot move money between China and the USA freely. The People’s Bank of China (PBOC) and State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) regulate the flow of foreign exchange in and out of the country strictly. We need to get approval from Chinese government to move money from China to the U.S. which might take extra time.
On March 22, 2020, the Company entered into an agreement with Malven Group Limited, a company established under the laws of the British Virgin Islands, in connection with the purchase of 1,939,237 shares of common stock of the Company at a price of $0.7735 per share for gross proceeds of $1,500,000. The closing of the transaction took place on March 31, 2020.
The entire disclosure when substantial doubt is raised about the ability to continue as a going concern. Includes, but is not limited to, principal conditions or events that raised substantial doubt about the ability to continue as a going concern, management's evaluation of the significance of those conditions or events in relation to the ability to meet its obligations, and management's plans that alleviated or are intended to mitigate the conditions or events that raise substantial doubt about the ability to continue as a going concern.
