Revenue

Net revenue for six months ended June 30, 2017 increased 15% year-over-year to $7,973,214 from $6,907,622 in the same period in 2016.

Approximately 64% of our revenue or $5,141,528 was generated by providing commercial payment advisory services to 9 small and medium size enterprises ("SMEs") where we assisted in helping them obtain acceptance bills from banks in 9 separate transactions.

Approximately 26% of our revenue or $2,068,147 was derived from providing intermediary bank loan advisory services to four customers, a 119% increase from $945,102 for the same period in 2016.

Finally, approximately 10% of our revenue or $763,539 was derived from providing international corporate financing advisory services for the six months ended June 30, 2017. International corporate financing advisory revenues increased 55% year-over-year from $491,915 in the same period in 2016.

Overall, our revenue increased substantially for the period from January 1, 2017 to June 30, 2017 compared to the same period in 2016 mainly due to an increase in the financing amounts. Our advisory fee rate remained unchanged year over year.

Cost of Revenue

Total cost of revenue, which comprises mainly revenue-generating staffing costs, was $182,514 for the six months ended June 30, 2017 compared to $176,321 for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

Overall, the year-over-year increase of approximately 4% is lower than a 15% increase in our revenue, mainly because staff salaries increased only slightly compared to our revenue growth.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit for the period from January 1, 2017 to June 30, 2017 increased 16% to $7,790,700 from $6,731,301 in the same period in 2016 and the increase is in line with the revenue growth of 15% over the same periods and only a slight increase in cost of revenue.

Gross margin, or gross profit as a percentage of total revenues, was 98% for the period from January 1, 2017 to June 30, 2017, compared with 97% in the same period in 2016.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2017 increased 20% year-over-year to $638,155 from $531,181 in the same period in 2016.

Selling and marketing expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2017 increased 37% year-over-year to $26,295 from $19,132 in the comparable period in 2016. The year-over-year increase primarily resulted from the increase in staffing costs as a result of an increase in headcount, which is in line with our revenue growth.

General and administrative expenses consist primarily of staff salaries, rental expenses and office related expenses. General and administrative expenses were $611,860, or 8% of total revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2017, as compared to $512,049 of 7% of total revenue in the same period in 2016, an increase of $99,811. The increase of general and administrative expenses is mainly due to increases in office related expenses, travel and entertainment expenses and staffing costs as a result of an increase in headcount, which are in line with our revenue growth.

Income from Operations and Operating Margin

Income from operations in the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $7,152,545, compared with operating income of $6,200,120 in the same period in 2016.

Operating margin, or income from operations as a percentage of total revenue, remained at 90% for both the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016.

Interest incomes

Interest income was $1,460,310 for the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared with $1,396,025 for the same period a year ago. Interest income was primarily from bank deposits and loans to third parties.

Income tax expense

Income tax expense was $347,302 for the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared with $1,895,559 for the same period of the previous year. The sharp decrease of income tax expense was mainly due to the transition of operating business from one subsidiary - Sheng Ying Xin (Beijing) Management Consulting Co., Ltd ("Sheng Ying Xin"), in the first half of 2016, which is subject to the 25% income tax rate, to another subsidiary - Kashgar Sheng Yingxin Enterprise Consulting Co., Ltd. ("Kashgar SYX"), which is exempted from income tax from its inception through December 31, 2020.

Foreign Currency Translation Gain/(Loss)

Foreign currency translation gain was $728,988 in the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared with a loss of $402,257 in the same period of the previous year, as a result of the fluctuations in the exchange rates of the Renminbi against the US dollar.

Net Income

Net income for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $8,239,154, as compared to $5,693,158 for the six months ended June 30, 2016. The increase in net income is mainly due to our business expansion and growth in our revenue.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, we held cash in U.S. dollars of $5,871,627 and $1,880,425 respectively.

Net cash generated from operations for the six months ended June 30, 2017 was $ 11,602,701 as compared to $9,293,396 for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

Relevant PRC statutory laws and regulations permit payments of dividends by the Company's PRC subsidiary and VIE only from their retained earnings, if any, determined in accordance with PRC GAAP. In addition, the Company's subsidiary and VIE in China are required to make annual appropriations of 10% of after-tax profit to a general reserve fund or statutory reserve fund until such reserve has reached 50% of its registered capital based on the enterprise's PRC statutory accounts. Paid in capital of the PRC subsidiary and VIE included in the Company's consolidated net assets are also non-distributable for dividend purposes. As a result of these PRC laws and regulations, the Company's PRC subsidiary and VIE are restricted in their abilities to transfer net assets to the Company in the form of dividends, loans or advances. The Company is expected to focus the operation mainly in PRC and is not expected to have significant operations outside PRC in foreseeable future, and is not expected to have significant transfer of cash to and/or from the PRC subsidiary and VIE.

According to applicable PRC laws and regulations, a number of conditions must be met before any dividends of a wholly foreign owned enterprise, such as our PRC subsidiary, may be distributed. In accordance with the Implementation Rules of Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprise Law of the PRC promulgated by the State Council, prior to the payment of any dividend, our PRC subsidiary is required to (i) reserve funds from its profit of current accounting year to make up its losses for the previous accounting years, (ii) pay the income taxes pursuant to applicable tax laws of the PRC and (iii) reserve accumulated funds to improve our PRC subsidiary's ability to withstand operation risks. Therefore, the PRC regulations could conceivably limit the amount of dividends that can be paid by our PRC subsidiary although our PRC subsidiary has historically not paid any dividends. We believe that such limitation will exist in the future.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We do not have any off-balance sheet arrangements.

Other Significant Events

Initial Public Offering

We completed an initial public offering ("IPO") of 2,023,146 of our ordinary shares to the public at a price of $10.00 per share for a total of $20,231,460 before underwriting discounts, commissions and offering expenses on July 28, 2017.
