NOTE - 3 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

 

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements reflect the application of certain significant accounting policies as described in this note and elsewhere in the accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements and notes.

 

·Use of estimates

 

In preparing these condensed consolidated financial statements, management makes estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities in the balance sheet and revenues and expenses during the periods reported. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

 

·Basis of consolidation

 

The condensed consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of NFEC and its subsidiaries. All significant inter-company balances and transactions within the Company have been eliminated upon consolidation.

 

The accounts of Sales Company are consolidated as a wholly-owned subsidiary from its inception to March 31, 2012, in which the Company holds 99%-majority equity interest and has the ability to exercise significant influence over Sales Company. The consolidation of 1% equity interest of Sales Company is not material to the financial position and results of operations for the periods presented.

 

·Cash and cash equivalents

 

Cash and cash equivalents are carried at cost and represent cash on hand, demand deposits placed with banks or other financial institutions and all highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less as of the purchase date of such investments.

 

·Accounts receivable

 

Accounts receivable are recorded at the invoiced amount and do not bear interest, which are due within contractual payment terms, generally 30 to 90 days from shipment. Credit is extended based on evaluation of a customer's financial condition, the customer credit-worthiness and their payment history. Accounts receivable outstanding longer than the contractual payment terms are considered past due. Past due balances over 90 days and over a specified amount are reviewed individually for collectability. At the end of each period, the Company specifically evaluates individual customer’s financial condition, credit history, and the current economic conditions to monitor the progress of the collection of accounts receivables. The Company will consider the allowance for doubtful accounts for any estimated losses resulting from the inability of its customers to make required payments. For the receivables that are past due or not being paid according to payment terms, the appropriate actions are taken to exhaust all means of collection, including seeking legal resolution in a court of law. Account balances are charged off against the allowance after all means of collection have been exhausted and the potential for recovery is considered remote. The Company does not have any off-balance-sheet credit exposure related to its customers.

(Unaudited)

 

·Retention receivable

 

Retention receivable is the amount withheld by a customer based upon 5-10% of the contract value, until a product warranty is expired.

 

·Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market value (net realizable value), cost being determined on a weighted average method. Costs include material, labor and manufacturing overhead costs. The Company quarterly reviews historical sales activity to determine excess, slow moving items and potentially obsolete items and also evaluates the impact of any anticipated changes in future demand. The Company provides inventory allowances based on excess and obsolete inventories determined principally by customer demand. As of March 31, 2012, the Company did not record an allowance for obsolete inventories, nor have there been any write-offs.

 

·Construction in progress

 

Construction in progress is stated at cost, which includes acquisition of land use rights, cost of construction, purchases of plant and equipment and other direct costs attributable to the construction of a new manufacturing facility in Yinzhou District Industrial Park, Tieling City, Liaoning Province, the PRC. Construction in progress is not depreciated until such time as the assets are completed and put into operational use. No capitalized interest is incurred during the period of construction.

 

·Land use rights

 

All land in the PRC is owned by the PRC government. The government in the PRC, according to the relevant PRC law, may sell the right to use the land for a specified period of time. Thus, the Company’s land purchase in the PRC is considered to be leasehold land and is stated at cost less accumulated amortization and any recognized impairment loss. Amortization is provided over the term of the land use right agreement on a straight-line basis, which is 50 years and will expire in 2059.

 

Amortization expense for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 was $16,325 and $15,658, respectively.

 

The estimated amortization expense on the land use right in the next five years and thereafter is as follows:

 

Year ending March 31:     
2013  $16,313 
2014   16,313 
2015   16,313 
2016   16,313 
2017   16,313 
Thereafter   3,034,213 
      
Total:  $3,115,778

·Plant and equipment

 

Plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses, if any. Depreciation is calculated on the straight-line basis over the following expected useful lives from the date on which they become fully operational and after taking into account their estimated residual values:

 

  Expected useful life  Residual value  
Building  30 years   5%
Plant and machinery  10 – 20 years   5%
Furniture, fixture and equipment  5 – 8 years   5%

 

Expenditure for repairs and maintenance is expensed as incurred. When assets have retired or sold, the cost and related accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any resulting gain or loss is recognized in the results of operations.

 

Depreciation expense for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011 was $153,473 and $128,582, respectively.

 

·Finance leases

 

Leases that transfer substantially all the rewards and risks of ownership to the lessee, other than legal title, are accounted for as finance leases. Substantially all of the risks or benefits of ownership are deemed to have been transferred if any one of the four criteria is met: (i) transfer of ownership to the lessee at the end of the lease term, (ii) the lease containing a bargain purchase option, (iii) the lease term exceeding 75% of the estimated economic life of the leased asset, (iv) the present value of the minimum lease payments exceeding 90% of the fair value. At the inception of a finance lease, the Company as the lessee records an asset and an obligation at an amount equal to the present value of the minimum lease payments. The leased asset is amortized over the shorter of the lease term or its estimated useful life if title does not transfer to the Company, while the leased asset is depreciated in accordance with the Company’s normal depreciation policy if the title is to eventually transfer to the Company. The periodic rent payments made during the lease term are allocated between a reduction in the obligation and interest element using the effective interest method in accordance with the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Topic 835-30, “Imputation of Interest”.

 

·Impairment of long-lived assets

 

In accordance with the provisions of ASC Topic 360-10-5, “Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets”, all long-lived assets such as plant and equipment held and used by the Company and construction in progress are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. Recoverability of assets to be held and used is evaluated by a comparison of the carrying amount of assets to estimated discounted net cash flows expected to be generated by the assets. If such assets are considered to be impaired, the impairment to be recognized is measured by the amount by which the carrying amounts of the assets exceed the fair value of the assets. There has been no impairment charge for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.

·Revenue recognition

 

The Company offers a number of products and service to its customers, which are:

 

1. Sales of energy saving flow control equipment        
2. Provision of energy project management and sub-contracting service        
3. Provision of energy-saving reconstruction projects        

 

In accordance with the ASC Topic 605, “Revenue Recognition”, the Company recognizes revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, transfer of title has occurred or services have been rendered, the selling price is fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured.

 

(a)Sale of products

 

The Company derives a majority of its revenues from the sale of energy saving flow control equipment. Generally, these products are manufactured and configured to customer requirements. The Company typically produces and builds the energy saving flow control equipment for customers in a period from 1 to 6 months. When the Company completes the production in accordance with the customer’s specification, the customer is required to inspect the finished products for quality and product conditions, to its full satisfaction; then the Company makes delivery to the customer.

 

The Company recognizes revenue from the sale of such finished products upon delivery to the customer, whereas the title and risk of loss are fully transferred to the customers. The Company records its revenues, net of value added taxes (“VAT”). The Company is subject to VAT which is levied on the majority of the products at the rate of 17% on the invoiced value of sales. The Company experienced no product returns and recorded no reserve for sales returns for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.

 

(b)Service revenue

 

Service revenue is primarily derived from energy-saving technical services or project management or sub-contracting services that are not an element of an arrangement for the sale of products. These services are generally billed on a time-cost plus basis, for a period of service time from 2 to 3 months. Revenue is recognized, net of business taxes when the service is rendered and accepted by the customer.

 

(c)Project revenue

 

For the energy-saving reconstruction projects, the Company follows the percentage-of-completion method under ASC Topic 605-35, “Construction-Type and Production-Type Contracts”, to recognize revenues for energy-saving reconstruction projects that require significant modification or customization or installation subject to the customers for a term of service period exceeding 12 months. Advance payments from customers and amounts billed to clients in excess of revenue recognized are recorded as receipt in advance. For the three months ended March 31, 2012, the Company did not recognize any project revenue.

 

(d)Interest income

 

Interest income is recognized on a time apportionment basis, taking into account the principal amounts outstanding and the interest rates applicable.

·Comprehensive income

 

ASC Topic 220, “Comprehensive Income”, establishes standards for reporting and display of comprehensive income, its components and accumulated balances. Comprehensive income as defined includes all changes in equity during a period from non-owner sources. Accumulated other comprehensive income, as presented in the accompanying condensed consolidated statement of stockholders’ equity, consists of changes in unrealized gains and losses on foreign currency translation. This comprehensive income is not included in the computation of income tax expense or benefit.

 

·Income taxes

 

Income taxes are determined in accordance with the provisions of ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes” (“ASC 740”). Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax basis. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted income tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Any effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

ASC 740 prescribes a comprehensive model for how companies should recognize, measure, present, and disclose in their financial statements uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken on a tax return. Under ASC 740, tax positions must initially be recognized in the financial statements when it is more likely than not the position will be sustained upon examination by the tax authorities. Such tax positions must initially and subsequently be measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the tax authority assuming full knowledge of the position and relevant facts.

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011, the Company did not have any interest and penalties associated with tax positions. As of March 31, 2012, the Company did not have any significant unrecognized uncertain tax positions.

 

The Company conducts major businesses in the PRC and is subject to tax in this jurisdiction. As a result of its business activities, the Company files tax returns that are subject to examination by the foreign tax authority.

 

·Product warranty

 

Under the terms of the contracts, the Company offers its customers with a free product warranty on a case-by-case basis, depending upon the type of customers, nature and size of the infrastructure projects. Under such arrangements, a portion of the project contract balance (usually 5% to 10% of contract value) is withheld by a customer from 12 to 24 months, until the product warranty has expired. The Company has not experienced any material returns or claims where it was under obligation to honor this standard warranty provision. As such, no reserve for product warranty has been provided in the result of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2012 and 2011.

·Net income per share

 

The Company calculates net income per share in accordance with ASC Topic 260, “Earnings per Share.” Basic income per share is computed by dividing the net income by the weighted-average number of common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted income per share is computed similar to basic income per share except that the denominator is increased to include the number of additional common shares that would have been outstanding if the potential common stock equivalents had been issued and if the additional common shares were dilutive.

 

·Foreign currencies translation

 

Transactions denominated in currencies other than the functional currency are translated into the functional currency at the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transaction. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than the functional currency are translated into the functional currency using the applicable exchange rates at the balance sheet dates. The resulting exchange differences are recorded in the statement of operations.

 

The reporting currency of the Company is the United States Dollar ("US$"). The Company's subsidiaries in the PRC maintain their books and records in their local currency, the Renminbi Yuan ("RMB"), which is the functional currency as being the primary currency of the economic environment in which these entities operate.

 

In general, for consolidation purposes, assets and liabilities of its subsidiaries whose functional currency is not the US$ are translated into US$, in accordance with ASC Topic 830-30, “Translation of Financial Statement ”, using the exchange rate on the balance sheet date. Revenues and expenses are translated at average rates prevailing during the period. The gains and losses resulting from translation of financial statements of foreign subsidiaries are recorded as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income within the statement of stockholders’ equity.

 

Translation of amounts from RMB into US$1 has been made at the following exchange rates for the respective period:

   March 31, 2012   March 31, 2011 
Period-end RMB:US$1 exchange rate   6.3247    6.5701 
Average period RMB:US$1 exchange rate   6.3201    6.5894 

 

·Related parties

 

Parties, which can be a corporation or individual, are considered to be related if the Company has the ability, directly or indirectly, to control the other party or exercise significant influence over the other party in making financial and operational decisions. Companies are also considered to be related if they are subject to common control or common significant influence.

 

·Segment reporting

 

ASC Topic 280, “Segment Reporting” establishes standards for reporting information about operating segments on a basis consistent with the Company’s internal organization structure as well as information about geographical areas, business segments and major customers in financial statements. The Company operates in two reportable operating segments in the PRC.

 

·Fair value of financial instruments

 

The carrying value of the Company’s financial instruments (excluding short-term bank borrowing, note payable and convertible promissory notes): cash and cash equivalents, accounts and retention receivable, prepayments and other receivables, accounts payable, income tax payable, amount due to a related party, other payables and accrued liabilities approximate at their fair values because of the short-term nature of these financial instruments.

Management believes, based on the current market prices or interest rates for similar debt instruments, the fair value of short-term bank borrowings, note payable and convertible promissory notes approximate the carrying amount.

 

The Company also follows the guidance of the ASC Topic 820-10, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures” ("ASC 820-10"), with respect to financial assets and liabilities that are measured at fair value. ASC 820-10 establishes a three-tier fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

 

Level 1 : Inputs are based upon unadjusted quoted prices for identical instruments traded in active markets;

 

Level 2 : Inputs are based upon quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active, and model-based valuation techniques (e.g. Black-Scholes Option-Pricing model) for which all significant inputs are observable in the market or can be corroborated by observable market data for substantially the full term of the assets or liabilities. Where applicable, these models project future cash flows and discount the future amounts to a present value using market-based observable inputs; and

 

Level 3 : Inputs are generally unobservable and typically reflect management’s estimates of assumptions that market participants would use in pricing the asset or liability. The fair values are therefore determined using model-based techniques, including option pricing models and discounted cash flow models.

 

Fair value estimates are made at a specific point in time based on relevant market information about the financial instrument. These estimates are subjective in nature and involve uncertainties and matters of significant judgment and, therefore, cannot be determined with precision. Changes in assumptions could significantly affect the estimates.

 

·Recent accounting pronouncements

 

The Company has reviewed all recently issued, but not yet effective, accounting pronouncements and do not believe the future adoption of any such pronouncements may be expected to cause a material impact on its financial condition or the results of its operations.

 

In June 2011, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) issued ASU No. 2011-05,“Comprehensive Income: Presentation of Comprehensive Income”(“ASU 2011-05”). ASU 2011-05 requires companies to present the components of other comprehensive income either in a single continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements of net income and other comprehensive income. This statement is effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2011. Early adoption is permitted and the amendments in this update will be applied retrospectively. The adoption has not had a material effect on the Company’s financial statements.

(c)Credit risk

 

Financial instruments that are potentially subject to credit risk consist principally of trade receivables. The Company believes the concentration of credit risk in its trade receivables is substantially mitigated by its ongoing credit evaluation process and relatively short collection terms. The Company does not generally require collateral from customers. The Company evaluates the need for an allowance for doubtful accounts based upon factors surrounding the credit risk of specific customers, historical trends and other information.

 

(d)Interest rate risk

 

As the Company has no significant interest-bearing assets, the Company’s income and operating cash flows are substantially independent of changes in market interest rates.

 

The Company’s interest-rate risk arises from borrowing under note payable, finance lease and short-term bank borrowings. The Company manages interest rate risk by varying the issuance and maturity dates variable rate debt, limiting the amount of variable rate debt, and continually monitoring the effects of market changes in interest rates. As of March 31, 2012, borrowing under note payable and finance lease was at fixed rates.

(Currency expressed in United States Dollars (“US$”), except for number of shares)

(Unaudited)

 

(e)Exchange rate risk

 

The reporting currency of the Company is US$, to date the majority of the revenues and costs are denominated in RMB and a significant portion of the assets and liabilities are denominated in RMB. As a result, the Company is exposed to foreign exchange risk as its revenues and results of operations may be affected by fluctuations in the exchange rate between US$ and RMB. If RMB depreciates against US$, the value of RMB revenues and assets as expressed in US$ financial statements will decline. The Company does not hold any derivative or other financial instruments that expose to substantial market risk.

 

(f)Economic and political risks

 

The Company's operations are conducted in the PRC. Accordingly, the Company's business, financial condition and results of operations may be influenced by the political, economic and legal environment in the PRC, and by the general state of the PRC economy.

 

The Company's operations in the PRC are subject to special considerations and significant risks not typically associated with companies in North America and Western Europe. These include risks associated with, among others, the political, economic and legal environment and foreign currency exchange. The Company's results may be adversely affected by changes in the political and social conditions in the PRC, and by changes in governmental policies with respect to laws and regulations, anti-inflationary measures, currency conversion, remittances abroad, and rates and methods of taxation.

 

NOTE - 15COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

 

(a)Capital commitments

 

As of March 31, 2012, the Company is committed to the future contingent payments of approximately $0.7 million on the purchase of new plant and equipment and third party contractors relating to its construction project in the next twelve months.

 

(b)Unused credit facility

 

The Company obtained a credit facility with the maximum limit of $5.88 million (equivalent to RMB40 million), in a term of 2 years, expiry on June 28, 2012. Advances under this credit facility are unsecured and bear interest at an annual rate of 1.3 times the Bank of China Benchmark Lending Rate, payable monthly. There were no borrowings under this credit facility as of March 31, 2012.

 

(c)Legal proceedings

 

Robert E. Dawley v. NF Energy Corp. of America, M.D. Fla. Case no. 6:10-cv-0115-Orl-22DAB. Robert Dawley (“Dawley”) commenced this action in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida against the Company, Mr. Gang Li and the Company’s litigation counsel on October 1, 2010. The allegations in this action are identical to those that Dawley raised in a prior proceeding in which the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit entered judgment against him and in favor of the Company.

 

The District Court, upon motion by the defendants, has dismissed six of Dawley’s ten claims with prejudice on the grounds that they are precluded by the Eleventh Circuit’s prior judgment. Dawley has attempted to appeal the District Court’s dismissal to the Eleventh Circuit. (Dawley v NF Energy Saving Corp. of America, U.S.C.A. 11th Cir. Appeal no. 11-10201-F.) However, that Court has questioned whether it has jurisdiction over the matter in light of the continued pendency of four of Dawley’s claims before the District Court.

Dawley has filed an Amended Complaint in the District Court in an effort to address the deficiencies noted by it with respect to his four remaining claims. Defendants have moved to dismiss the Amended Complaint on the grounds that it still fails to allege facts sufficient to state a claim. Whether or not the District Court agrees, the Company intends to contest Dawley’s claims on several grounds, including that he has failed to identify any basis for liability or damages.

 

As of March 31, 2012, the Company accrued $200,000 for this contingent liability and the Company’s directors, Mr. Gang Li and Ms. Lihua Wang have personally agreed to guarantee all contingent liabilities and costs to be incurred in connection with this litigation claim. At this point, the Company does not believe that the judgment would have a material impact on, or result in significant contingencies to, the Company. [Note: Was this reviewed by litigation counsel?]

Revenue Recognition

 

In accordance with the ASC Topic 605, “Revenue Recognition”, the Company recognizes revenue when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, transfer of title has occurred or services have been rendered, the selling price is fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured.

 

The Company’s revenue is principally derived from three primary sources: Sales of energy saving flow control equipment, provision of energy project management and sub-contracting services, and provision of energy-saving reconstruction projects.

 

(a)Sale of products

 

The Company derives a majority of its revenues from the sale of energy saving flow control equipment. Generally, the energy saving flow control equipment is manufactured and configured to customer requirements. The Company typically produces the energy saving flow control equipment for customers over a period from one to six months. When the Company completes production in accordance with the customer’s specification, the customer is required to inspect the finished products at the Company’s plant to approve quality and conformity and make final acceptance. Once the product is accepted by the customer, the Company undertakes delivery to the customer, usually within a month.

 

The Company recognizes revenue from the sale of such finished products upon delivery to the customers, when the title and risk of loss are fully transferred to the customers. The Company records its revenues, net of value added taxes (“VAT”). The VAT rate is 17%.

 

(b)Service revenue

 

Service revenue is derived from energy-saving technical services, project management or sub-contracting services. These services are generally billed on a time-cost plus basis, for the period of service provided, which is generally from two to nine months. Revenue is recognized when the service is rendered and accepted by the customer.

 

(c)Project revenue

 

For energy-saving reconstruction projects, the Company follows the percentage-of-completion method under ASC Subtopic 605-35, “Construction-Type and Production-Type Contracts” to recognize revenues for energy-saving reconstruction projects that require significant modification or customization or installation for a term of service period exceeding 12 months.

 

(d)Interest income

 

Interest income is recognized on a time apportionment basis, taking into account the principal amounts outstanding and the interest rates applicable.

 

Accounts Receivable

 

Accounts receivable are recorded at the invoiced amount, do not bear interest and are due within the contractual payment terms, generally 30 to 90 days from shipment. Credit is extended based on evaluation of a customer's financial condition, the customer’s credit-worthiness and their payment history. Accounts receivable outstanding longer than the contractual payment terms are considered past due. Past due balances over 90 days and over a specified amount are reviewed individually for collectability. At the end of each period, the Company specifically evaluates each individual customer’s financial condition, credit history, and the current economic conditions to monitor the progress of the collection of accounts receivable. The Company will consider an allowance for doubtful accounts for any estimated losses resulting from the inability of its customers to make required payments. For the receivables that are past due or not being paid according to payment terms, the appropriate actions are taken to exhaust all means of collection, including seeking legal resolution in a court of law. Account balances are charged off against the allowance after all means of collection has been exhausted and the potential for recovery is considered remote. The Company does not have any off-balance-sheet credit exposure related to its customers.

 

6
 

 

For most of our contracts, our customers are generally large or stated-owned construction contractors or developers mainly engaged in government-sponsored infrastructure projects such as large hydraulic/aqua-engineering projects, power plants and urban sewage network projects in the PRC. Usually, these infrastructure projects are undertaken in a number of phrases over a certain period of time. Our flow control equipment components are generally considered as major or significant components in the development phase of these infrastructure projects. As is standard in our industry practice, we are paid by these contractors and/or developers when they have been paid by the local government or state-owned enterprises after the full inspection of each milestone during each construction phrase. Given that the construction of these infrastructure projects are very large, complex, and require a high quality level at completion, the inspection process may take a considerable amount of time. Therefore, we may not collect the accounts receivable in a timely manner or only after a period longer than our agreed payment terms.

 

We have a high level of assurance on the recoverability of these accounts receivable, based on our ongoing assessment of customers’ credit-worthiness and their payment history. These customers are usually large state-owned corporations with good credit ratings. At the end of each period, we specifically evaluate the structure and collectability of accounts receivable and for receivables that are past due or not being paid according to the payment terms, we take appropriate action to exhaust all means of collection, including seeking legal resolution in a court of law. For customers with large amounts of accounts receivable, we may take other steps, such as limiting sales and changing payment terms and requesting forms of security. We will consider an adjustment to the allowance for doubtful accounts for any estimated losses resulting from the inability of our customers to make required payments.

 

Account balances are charged off against the allowance for doubtful accounts after all means of collection have been exhausted and the potential for recovery is considered remote. The Company does not have any off-balance sheet credit exposure related to its customers.

 

Product Warranties

 

Under the terms of the contracts, the Company offers a free 12 to 24 months of product warranty on a case-by–case basis, depending upon the type of customer, and the nature and size of the infrastructure project. Under such arrangements, a portion of the project contract balance (usually 5-10% of contract value) is withheld by a customer from 12 to 24 months, until the product warranty has expired. The Company has not experienced any material returns under this warranty provision.

 

Inventories

 

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market (net realizable value), with the cost being determined on a weighted average method. Costs include material, labor and manufacturing overhead costs. Quarterly, the Company reviews historical sales activity to determine excess, slow moving items and potentially obsolete items and also evaluates the impact of any anticipated changes in future demand. The Company provides inventory allowances based on excess and obsolete inventories determined principally by customer demand.

 

Plant and Equipment

 

Plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses, if any. Depreciation is calculated on the straight-line basis over the following expected useful lives from the date on which they become fully operational and after taking into account their estimated residual values:

 

7
 

  

  Expected useful life   Residual value  
          
Building  30 years   5% 
          
Plant and machinery  10 - 20 years   5% 
          
Furniture, fixture and equipment  5 - 8 years   5% 

 

Expenditure for repairs and maintenance is expensed as incurred. When assets have been retired or sold, the cost and related accumulated depreciation are removed from the accounts and any resulting gain or loss is recognized in the results of operations.

 

Land Use Rights

 

All land in the PRC is owned by the PRC government. The government in the PRC, according to the relevant PRC law, may sell the right to use the land for a specified period of time. Thus, the Company’s land purchase in the PRC is considered to be leasehold land and is stated at cost less accumulated amortization and any recognized impairment loss. Amortization is provided over the term of the land use right agreement on a straight-line basis, which is 50 years and will expire in 2059.

 

Finance Leases

 

Leases that transfer substantially all the rewards and risks of ownership to the lessee, other than legal title, are accounted for as finance leases. Substantially all of the risks or benefits of ownership are deemed to have been transferred if any one of the four criteria is met: (i) transfer of ownership to the lessee at the end of the lease term, (ii) the lease containing a bargain purchase option, (iii) the lease term exceeding 75% of the estimated economic life of the leased asset, or (iv) the present value of the minimum lease payments exceeding 90% of the fair value. At the inception of a finance lease, the Company as the lessee records an asset and an obligation at an amount equal to the present value of the minimum lease payments. The leased asset is amortized over the shorter of the lease term or its estimated useful life if title does not transfer to the Company, while the leased asset is depreciated in accordance with the Company’s normal depreciation policy if the title is to eventually transfer to the Company. The periodic lease payments made during the lease term are allocated between a reduction in the obligation and interest element using the effective interest method in accordance with the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") Subtopic 835-30, “Imputation of Interest”.

 

Income Taxes

 

Income taxes are determined in accordance with the provisions of ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes ” (“ASC 740”). Under this method, deferred tax assets and liabilities are recognized for the future tax consequences attributable to differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of existing assets and liabilities and their respective tax basis. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted income tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Any effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.

 

ASC 740 prescribes a comprehensive model for how companies should recognize, measure, present, and disclose in their financial statements uncertain tax positions taken or expected to be taken on a tax return. Under ASC 740, tax positions must initially be recognized in the financial statements when it is more likely than not the position will be sustained upon examination by the tax authorities. Such tax positions must initially and subsequently be measured as the largest amount of tax benefit that has a greater than 50% likelihood of being realized upon ultimate settlement with the tax authority assuming full knowledge of the position and relevant facts.

Foreign Currencies Translation

 

Transactions denominated in currencies other than the functional currency are translated into the functional currency at the exchange rates prevailing at the dates of the transaction. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than the functional currency are translated into the functional currency using the applicable exchange rates at the balance sheet dates. The resulting exchange differences are recorded in the condensed consolidated statement of operations.

 

The reporting currency of the Company is the United States dollar ("US$"). The Company's subsidiaries in the PRC, Nengfa Energy and Sales Company maintain their books and records in the local currency of the PRC, the Renminbi ("RMB"), which is the primary currency of the economic environment in which these entities operate.

 

In general, for consolidation purposes, assets and liabilities of its subsidiaries whose functional currency is not the US$ are translated into US$, in accordance with ASC Topic 830-30, “Translation of Financial Statement”, using the exchange rate on the balance sheet date. Revenues and expenses are translated at average rates prevailing during the period. The gains and losses resulting from translation of financial statements of foreign subsidiaries are recorded as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income within the statement of stockholders’ equity.

 

Translation of amounts from RMB into US$ has been made at the following exchange rates for the respective period:

 

   March 31, 2012   March 31, 2011 
Period-end RMB:US$1 exchange rate   6.3247    6.5701 
Average period RMB:US$1 exchange rate   6.3201    6.5894 

 

RESULTS OF OPERATIONS

FOR THE THREE MONTHS ENDED March 31, 2012 AND 2011

 

A 2012 government report from the office of the Chinese Premier, Wen Jiabao stated that: “We made progress in conserving energy, reducing emissions, and protecting the ecological environment. We adopted and implemented the Comprehensive Work Plan for Conserving Energy and Reducing Emissions and the Work Plan for Controlling Greenhouse Gas Emissions for the Twelfth Five-Year Plan period, and the Guidelines on Strengthening Key Environmental Protection Tasks. The installed power capacity using clean energy reached 290 million KW, and increase of 33.56 million KW over the previous year. We strengthened the development of major energy conservation and environmental protection projects. We increased daily sewage treatment capacity by 11 million tons in urban areas, and installed desulphurization systems on all new coal-fired power-generating units with a total capacity of over 50 million KW. We tightened controls over industries that are energy intensive, have high emissions or possess excess production capacity, and closed down outdated production facilities whose production capacity amounted to 150 million tons of cement, 31.22 million tons of iron, and 19.25 million tons of coke. “This indicates that in 2012 and thereafter low carbon initiatives”…will become a new impetus and engine for economic development, and it will become a new weathervane for construction of leading industrial systems and consumption patterns. ”

 

On April 6, 2010, the State Council of China approved the “Opinion on Accelerating the Implementation of Energy Management Contract to Promote the Development of Energy Service Industry,” (“the Opinion”) which was proposed by the National Development and Reform Commission, the Ministry of Finance, People’s Bank of China and the State Taxation Administration. A series of new tax benefits will stimulate China’s domestic energy conservation projects and services development. NF Energy will further develop its energy conservation projects by using “Energy Management Contract” (“EMC”) and “Energy Performance Certificate” models.

 

9
 

 

We believe that the stimulation plan of expanding environmental infrastructure that the Chinese government implements should provide the Company with a significant opportunity to provide energy saving services to the government supported infrastructure and industrial companies’ energy saving infrastructure. In October 2010, the Company was recommended as one of the first batch of “Energy Saving Service Companies” by Chinese National Development and Reform Commission, and consequently, we believe that we will benefit from the government’s new tax deduction policy to energy saving service companies.

 

In 2011, the Twelfth Five Year Plan was launched in China with seven strategic emerging industries’ being promoted, including new energy and renewable energy. The production of electric power development continues to increase in major river valleys, and it is anticipated that the total installed capacity will reach 1.4 billion kilowatts by 2015. Hydropower to be installed will reach between 280 and 290 million KW; nuclear power to be installed will reach between 40 and 50 million KW; wind power installed will reach between 90 and 100 million KW; it is anticipated that the total output will reach between 1.6 and 1.8 billion KW, hydropower and nuclear power to be installed will reach 70 – 80 million KW and 100 -150 million KW respectively. Conventional thermal power will be maintained at current levels, which can also generate new opportunities for us.

 

Looking forward 10 years, the fixed asset investment in hydro development is expected to be 4 trillion RMB, which is a 400 billion RMB annual investment on average. The investment in such field was 180 billion RMB in 2009. The annual growth is estimated to 122%. Investment in hydro power is expected to be between 800 and 900 billion RMB for the next 5 years; the investment on re-installed incremental capacity in the Twelfth Five Year Plan is estimated to triple the actual investment achieved in the Eleventh Five Year Plan.

 

As a result of the Twelfth Five-Year Plan, we believe ecological environmental protection will bring about high demand and supply in the market. Many aspects will be developed continuously, such as desulfurization, denigration, industrial sewage and water supply and sewerage works of the city

 

Therefore, the Company believes that it has strong market opportunities not only in terms of intelligent flow control equipment and energy efficient flow control equipment it supplies to power plants, hydropower plants and water transportation projects, but also in terms of energy conservation services and energy saving projects by using the EPC model. The Company already has experience in energy project management in China. The Company is currently following up and bidding on some significant projects that could result in more opportunities in the market ,including the South to North Water Diversion Project (middle),East to West diversion Project (western of Liaoning Province),Yellow River diversion into the Shanxi Province Project , Songhua River diversion Project etc. Going forward, the Company plans to further develop its business model and regularly seek projects to develop comprehensive energy conservation and emission reduction solutions for energy saving reconstruction of steam heat energy system projects, industrial waste heat utilization, industrial boiler and furnace retrofitting and reconstruction, biomass utilization and other energy conservation fields.

 

REVENUES

 

Total revenues were $1,198,371 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $2,615,401 for the corresponding period in 2011. Total revenues decreased by $1,417,030, a 54.18% decrease for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to total revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2011. Decrease in total revenue was due to the decrease in product revenue and service revenue as explained below.

Product Revenues

 

Product revenues are derived principally from the sale of self-manufactured products relating to energy- saving flow control equipment. Product revenues were $639,762, or 53.39% of total revenues, for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $1,151,432, or 44.43% of total revenues, for the corresponding period in 2011. Product revenues decreased by $511,670, a 44.43% compared to the three months ended March 31, 2011. The decrease in product revenue was primarily due to the delay in the completion of the Company’s new production facility which resulted in the Company having to take a portion of its manufacturing capabilities off-line while moving production equipment from the old facility to the new facility so that a portion of orders of products could not be delivered on time.

 

Service Revenues

 

Service revenues are derived principally from energy-saving technical services and product collaboration processing services. The energy-saving technical services include providing energy saving auditing, conservation plans, and/or related service reports. The product re-processing services are generally billed on a time-cost plus basis. Revenue is recognized, net of business taxes when service is rendered and accepted by the customers. Service revenues were $558,609, or 46.61% of total revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $1,463,969, or 55.97% of total revenues for the corresponding period in 2011. Service revenues decreased by $905,360, or 61.84% decrease over the same period in 2011. The decrease in service revenue was primarily due to the decrease in orders for services.

 

Project Revenues

 

Project revenues are derived principally from energy-saving, re-engineering projects that require significant modification, customization and installation. The Company applies the percentage-of-completion method to recognize project revenues. There was no project revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2012 or March 31, 2011. Given the economic uncertainty, projects originally planned for the period were postponed, which prevented the Company from realizing any project revenue.

 

COSTS AND EXPENSES

 

Cost of Revenues

 

Cost of revenues consists primarily of material costs, direct labor, depreciation and manufacturing overhead, which are directly attributable to the manufacturing of products and the rendering of services. Total cost of revenues was $777,840 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $1,815,919 for the corresponding three months in 2011, a decrease of $1,038,079, or approximately 57.2%. This decrease was primarily due to the decrease in products sold during this period.

 

The overall gross profit for the Company was $420,531 (35% margin) for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $799,482 (31% margin) for the corresponding three months in 2011, a decrease of $378,951,or 47.4%, compared to the corresponding period in 2011. The increase of margin by 4 percent was due to the gross margin derived from our one new client. In contrast, there was no in-process transaction in respect to those clients for the corresponding three months in 2011.

 

Cost of Products

 

Total cost of products was $495,331 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $783,229 for the corresponding period in 2011, a decrease of $287,898, or approximately 36.8%. This decrease is primarily due to the decrease of product revenue during this period.

 

11
 

 

The gross profit for products was $144,431 (23% margin) for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $368,203 (31% margin) for the corresponding three months in 2011, a decrease of $223,772 (60.77%). This decrease is primarily due to the decrease in product revenues. Due to having to move our equipment to a new manufacturing facility the Company had to purchase products directly from other manufacturers, resulting the lower margins and higher costs.

 

Cost of Services

 

The cost of services was $ 282,509 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $ 1,032,690 for the corresponding period in 2011, a decrease of $ 750,181 or approximately 72.6%. This decrease is primarily due to the decrease in service revenues.

 

The gross profit for services was $276,100 (49% margin) for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $431,279 (29% margin). The increase of the gross profit for services was due to the gross margin for services from our one new client. In contrast, there was no in-process transaction in respect to those clients for the corresponding three months in 2011.

 

Cost of Projects

 

There was no project revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2012, therefore there was no cost of projects recognized during these periods.

 

Operating Expenses

 

Total operating expenses were $275,852 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $327,753 for the corresponding period in 2011, a decrease of $51,901, or approximately15.8%. The decrease of operating expenses is primarily due to the regulation and control of overhead.

 

Selling and Marketing Expenses

 

The selling and marketing expenses were $23,438 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $17,264 for the corresponding period in 2011, an increase of $6,174, or 35.76%. This increase is primarily due to the increase of marketing expenses in expanding new markets.

 

General and Administrative Expenses

 

General and administrative expenses were $252,414 for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $310,489 for the corresponding period in 2011, a decrease of $58,075. The decrease of general and administrative expenses is primarily due to the regulation and control of general and administrative expenses during this period.

 

INCOME FROM OPERATIONS

 

As a result of the factors mentioned above, income from operations was $144,679, for the three months ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $471,729 for the corresponding three months period in 2011, a decrease of $327,050, or approximately 69.3%. This decrease is primarily due to the decrease in total revenues.

 

Other (Expenses) Income

 

Other expense for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $132,024, as compared to $121,814 for the corresponding period in 2011, an increase of $10,210. This is primarily due to the increase in interest expense. As a result, the operating income was $12,655 for the three months ended March 31, 2012.

 

12
 

 

Income Tax Expense

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2012, income tax expense was $12,544, as compared to $57,589 for the same period in 2011, a decrease of $45,045, or 78.2%. This decrease was due to the decrease of income before income tax.

 

As of March 31, 2012, the Company’s operations in the United States of America have resulted in $2,684,826 of cumulative net operating losses, which can be carried forward to offset future taxable income. The net operating loss carry forward will begin to expire in 2032, if not utilized. The Company has provided for a valuation allowance against the deferred tax assets of $912,841 on the expected future tax benefits from the net operating loss carry forward as management believes it is more likely than not that these assets will not be realized in the future.

 

The Company’s effective income tax rate for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was 25%.

 

NET INCOME

 

As a result of the factors mentioned above, net income for the three months ended March 31, 2012 was $111, as compared to $292,326 for the corresponding three months period in 2011, a decrease of $292,215, or approximately 99%. This decrease is primarily due to the decrease in product and service revenue.

 

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

 

Operating activities

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2012, net cash provided by operating activities was $1,730,413. This was attributable primarily to net income of $111, adjusted by non-cash items of depreciation and amortization of $169,798, a decrease in accounts and retention receivable by $2,406,726, an increase in inventories by $272,576, a decrease in prepayment and other receivable by $29,386, a decrease in the accounts payable by $553,777, a decrease in income tax payable of $93,251, and an increase in other payables and accrued liabilities by $43,996.

 

As of March 31, 2012, the decrease of accounts receivable and retention was $2,406,726 which was primarily due to the collection of accounts and retention receivable. The decrease of accounts payable was primarily due to the Company having made payments to the vendors. The decrease of the income tax payable was due to the settlement of income tax during the period.

 

Investing activities

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2012, net cash used in investing activities was $6,073 which was primarily used in construction.

 

In 2008, the Company was approved by the local government to construct a new manufacturing facility for energy-saving products and equipment in Yingzhou District Industrial Park, Tieling City, Liaoning Province, PRC which cover an area of 33 acres. Total estimated construction cost of the new manufacturing facility is approximately $24 million. Phase I of the project is complete and began its operations in December 2011. Phase II of the project is on construction and expected to be completed during 2012.

 

Financing activities

 

For the three months ended March 31, 2012, the net financing cash inflow was $287,368 which was due to the proceeds from short-term bank borrowings of $2,159,769 and off-set by the increase in restricted cash of $255,691, repayment on short-term bank borrowings of 1,582,248 and payment on finance lease of $34,462.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

Our chief executive officer and chief financial officer evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2012. The term “disclosure controls and procedures,” as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act, means controls and other procedures of a company that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported, within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms. Disclosure controls and procedures include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by a company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the company’s management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Based on the evaluation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of March 31, 2012, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded that, as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective.

PART II. OTHER INFORMATION

 

Item 1. Legal Proceedings.

 

Robert E. Dawley v. NF Energy Corp. of America, M.D. Fla. Case no. 6:10-cv-0115-Orl-22DAB. Robert Dawley (“Dawley”) commenced this action in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida against the Company, Mr. Gang Li and the Company’s litigation counsel on October 1, 2010. The allegations in this action are identical to those that Dawley raised in a prior proceeding in which the United States Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit entered judgment against him and in favor of the Company.

 

The District Court, upon motion by the defendants, has dismissed six of Dawley’s ten claims with prejudice on the grounds that they are precluded by the Eleventh Circuit’s prior judgment. Dawley has attempted to appeal the District Court’s dismissal to the Eleventh Circuit. (Dawley v NF Energy Saving Corp. of America, U.S.C.A. 11th Cir. Appeal no. 11-10201-F.) However, that Court has questioned whether it has jurisdiction over the matter in light of the continued pendency of four of Dawley’s claims before the District Court.

 

Dawley has filed an Amended Complaint in the District Court in an effort to address the deficiencies noted by it with respect to his four remaining claims. Defendants have moved to dismiss the Amended Complaint on the grounds that it still fails to allege facts sufficient to state a claim. Whether or not the District Court agrees, the Company intends to contest Dawley’s claims on several grounds, including that he has failed to identify any basis for liability or damages.

 

As of March 31, 2012, the Company accrued $200,000 for this contingent liability and the Company’s directors, Mr. Gang Li and Ms. Lihua Wang have personally agreed to guarantee all contingent liabilities and costs to be incurred in connection with this litigation claim. At this point, the Company does not believe that the judgment would have a material impact on, or result in significant contingencies to, the Company.
