(Expressed in United States dollars)
 
1.
NATURE OF OPERATIONS

On January 30, 2007, SunSi Energies Inc. (“the Company” or “SunSi”) was incorporated in the State of Nevada. Through its operations based in the People’s Republic of China (“China” or “PRC”), SunSi is a manufacturer and distributor of the specialty chemical trichlorosilane (“TCS”). SunSi’s focus is to acquire and develop a portfolio of high quality TCS producing facilities and distribution rights that provide the potential for significant future growth and expansion. TCS is primarily used in the production of polysilicon; an essential raw material required in the production of solar cells for photovoltaic (“PV”) solar panels. A renewable energy source, PV panels convert solar radiation, or sunlight, into direct current electricity.

Prior to its December 8, 2010 acquisition of a 90% equity interest in Zibo Baokai Commerce and Trade Co., Ltd. (“Baokai”), SunSi was a Development Stage Company as defined by ASC Topic 915. Upon completion of this transaction, the Company emerged from development stage status and started generating revenues.

2.
SUMMARY OF  SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Basis of Presentation and Principles of Consolidation

The consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) and are expressed in United States dollars. The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company, its wholly-owned subsidiary SunSi Energies Hong Kong Limited (“SunSi HK”), SunSi HK's 90% owned subsidiary Baokai and SunSi HK's 60% owned subsidiary Wendeng He Xie Silicon Industry Co., Ltd. (“Wendeng”). All intercompany accounts have been eliminated in consolidation. As a result of the acquisitions of Baokai and Wendeng, the Company transitioned from a development stage company to planned operations. Consequently, the need to disclose certain historical data required as a development stage company and presented in prior company filings is no longer necessary.

Change of Fiscal Year-End

On December 8, 2011, the Company changed its fiscal year-end to December 31 from May 31. This change has no impact on this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q or on historical financial data shown within this Report.

Use of Estimates

The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company continually evaluates its estimates, including but not limited to those related to the valuation of accounts receivable, inventories, deferred income taxes, goodwill and intangible assets, and the estimation on the useful lives of property, plant and equipment. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience, known or expected trends and various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable given the quality of information available as of the date of these financial statements. The results of these assumptions provide the basis for making estimates about the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources. Actual results could differ from these estimates.

The Company believes that the following critical accounting policies govern its more significant judgments and estimates used in the preparation of its consolidated financial statements:

 
F-4

 
 
Financial Instruments

The Company considers all highly liquid investments with a maturity of three months or less at the date of purchase to be cash equivalents. Cash and cash equivalents are stated at cost and consist solely of bank deposits held in the United States, Hong Kong and the PRC (“China”). The carrying amount of cash and cash equivalents approximates fair value.

As of June 30, 2012, $352,939 of the cash and cash equivalents were in banks in China; a Wendeng branch of Industrial & Commercial Bank of China and a Central District, Hong Kong branch of HSBC Bank. The remittance of these funds out of China is subject to exchange control restrictions imposed by the Chinese government. Deposits in banks in the PRC are not insured by any government entity or agency, and are consequently exposed to risk of loss. Management believes the probability of a bank failure, causing loss to the Company, is remote.
 
Concentration of Credit Risk

Financial instruments that potentially subject the Company to significant concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and cash equivalents and accounts receivable. At June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, substantially all of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash were held by major financial institutions located in the United States, Hong Kong and the PRC, which management believes are of high credit quality.  

With respect to accounts receivable, the Company extends credit based on an evaluation of the customer’s financial condition. The Company generally does not require collateral for trade receivables and maintains an allowance for doubtful accounts of accounts receivable.

Allowance for doubtful accounts
 
The Company establishes an allowance for doubtful accounts based on management’s assessment of the collectability of trade receivables. A considerable amount of judgment is required in assessing the amount of the allowance. The underlying assumptions, estimates and assessments we use to provide for losses are updated periodically to reflect our view of current conditions. The Company makes judgments about the creditworthiness of each customer based on ongoing credit evaluations and frequent communication, and monitors current economic trends that might impact the level of credit losses in the future. If the financial condition of the customers were to deteriorate, resulting in their inability to make payments, a specific allowance will be required.

Bad debts are written off when identified. The Company extends unsecured credit to substantially all of its customers in the normal course of business. In many cases, this is necessary to remain competitive in the marketplace in which the Company operates. Potential customers for the Company’s products are finite in nature, and typically are larger, well capitalized companies. The Company does not accrue interest on aged trade accounts receivable as it is not a customary practice in the jurisdictions in which the Company operates. Historically, losses from uncollectible accounts have not significantly deviated from the specific allowance estimated by management. This specific provisioning policy has not changed since establishment and the management considers that the aforementioned specific provisioning policy is adequate and does not expect to change this established policy in the near future.

 
F-5

 
 
Inventory
 
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost or market value. Cost is determined on weighted average basis and includes all expenditures incurred in bringing the goods in a saleable condition to the point of sale. The Company’s inventory reserve requirements generally fluctuate based on projected demands and market conditions. In determining the adequate level of inventories to have on hand, management makes judgments as to the projected inventory demands as compared to the current or committed inventory levels. Inventory quantities and condition are reviewed regularly and provisions for excess or obsolete inventory are recorded based on the condition of inventory and the Company’s forecast of future demand and market conditions.

Intangible assets – land use rights
 
Land use rights are stated at cost less accumulated amortization. Amortization is provided using the straight-line method over the terms of 50 years. The lease term is obtained from the relevant PRC land authority.
 
Property, plant and equipment

Property, plant and equipment is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation. Cost represents the purchase price of the asset and other costs incurred to bring the asset into its existing use.

The property, plant and equipment of the Company will be depreciated using the straight-line method according to the following estimated residual value and service life.

The residual value and service life of property, plant and equipment will be reviewed on each balance sheet date, and adjusted if necessary.
 
The Company capitalizes the interest expenses incurred before property, plant and equipment are built and installed to the usable state, and capitalizes other loan interest expenses.
 
Construction in progress

The value of construction in progress comprises buildings and plants under construction, as well as machines and equipment being installed and commissioned, specifically comprises the costs of property, plant and equipment and other direct costs, relevant interest expenses accrued during the construction period and profits and losses from foreign exchange transactions.
 
Depreciation will not start until the construction in progress is completed and put into operation.
 
Impairment of Assets

The Company reviews long-lived assets and certain identifiable intangibles held and used for possible impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of an asset may not be recoverable. In evaluating the fair value and future benefits of its long-lived assets, management performs an analysis of the anticipated undiscounted future net cash flows of the individual assets over the remaining depreciation or amortization period. The Company recognizes an impairment loss if the carrying value of the asset exceeds the expected future cash flows.
 
Each year, the Company performs a transitional test for impairment of goodwill and other indefinite-lived intangible assets. This test is performed by comparing, at the reporting unit level, the carrying value of goodwill to its fair value. The Company assesses fair value based upon its best estimate of the present value of future cash flows that it expects to generate by the reporting unit. In conjunction with its recent change in fiscal year-end, the Company’s annual fair value assessment is performed each December 31 on subsidiaries with material goodwill on their respective balance sheets. However, changes in expectations as to the present value of the reporting unit’s future cash flows might impact subsequent years’ assessments of impairment.
 
Goodwill and Intangible Assets

Under ASC 350, the Company is required to perform an annual impairment test of the Company’s goodwill and indefinite-lived intangibles. On an annual basis, management assesses the composition of the Company’s assets and liabilities, as well as the events that have occurred and the circumstances that have changed since the most recent fair value determination. If events occur or circumstances change that would more likely than not reduce the fair value of goodwill and indefinite-lived intangibles below their carrying amounts, they will be tested for impairment. The Company will recognize an impairment charge if the carrying value of the asset exceeds the fair value determination. The impairment test that the Company has selected historically consisted of a ten year discounted cash flow analysis including the determination of a terminal value, and requires management to make various assumptions and estimates including revenue growth, future profitability, peer group comparisons, and a discount rate which management believes are reasonable.
 
 
F-7

 
 
The impairment test involves a two-step approach. Under the first step, the Company determines the fair value of each reporting subsidiary to which goodwill has been assigned. The Company then compares the fair value of each reporting subsidiary to its carrying value, including goodwill. The Company estimates the fair value of each reporting subsidiary by estimating the present value of the reporting subsidiaries' future cash flows. If the fair value exceeds the carrying value, no impairment loss is recognized. If the carrying value exceeds the fair value, the goodwill of the reporting unit is considered potentially impaired and the second step is completed in order to measure the impairment loss.
 
Under the second step, the Company calculates the implied fair value of goodwill by deducting the fair value of all tangible and intangible net assets, including any unrecognized intangible assets, of the reporting unit from the fair value of the reporting unit, as determined in the first step. The Company then compares the implied fair value of goodwill to the carrying value of goodwill. If the implied fair value of goodwill is less than the carrying value of goodwill, the Company recognizes an impairment loss equal to the difference.
 
Income Taxes

The Company accounts for income taxes under FASB ASC 740,“Accounting for Income Taxes”. Under FASB ASC 740, 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 bases. Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or settled. Under FASB ASC 740, the 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. FASB ASC 740-10-05,“Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes” prescribes a recognition threshold and a measurement attribute for the financial statement recognition and measurement of tax positions taken or expected to be taken in a tax return. For those benefits to be recognized, a tax position must be more-likely-than-not to be sustained upon examination by taxing authorities.

The amount recognized is measured as the largest amount of benefit that is greater than 50 percent likely of being realized upon ultimate settlement. We assess the validity of our conclusions regarding uncertain tax positions on a quarterly basis to determine if facts or circumstances have arisen that might cause us to change our judgment regarding the likelihood of a tax position’s sustainability under audit. We have determined that there were no uncertain tax positions for the periods ended June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011.
 
Basic and Diluted Net Income (Loss) Per Share

The Company computes net income (loss) per share in accordance with ASC 260,“Earnings per Share”. ASC 260 requires presentation of both basic and diluted earnings per share (EPS) on the face of the income statement. Basic EPS is computed by dividing net income (loss) available to common stockholders (numerator) by the weighted average number of shares outstanding (denominator) during the period. Diluted EPS gives effect to all dilutive potential common shares outstanding during the period using the treasury stock method and convertible preferred stock using the if-converted method. In computing diluted EPS, the average stock price for the period is used in determining the number of shares assumed to be purchased from the exercise of stock options or warrants. Diluted EPS excludes all dilutive potential shares if their effect is anti-dilutive.

Fair value of financial instruments

The Company adopted FASB ASC 820 on June 1, 2010. The adoption of FASB ASC 820 did not materially impact the Company's financial position, results of operations or cash flows. FASB ASC 820 requires the disclosure of the estimated fair value of financial instruments including those financial instruments for which the fair value option was not elected. The carrying amounts of both the financial assets and liabilities approximate to their fair values due to short maturities or the applicable interest rates approximate the current market rates.

Revenue Recognition

Revenue from the sales of the Company’s products is recognized upon customer acceptance. This occurs at the time of delivery to the customer, provided persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, such as a signed sales contract. The significant risks and rewards of ownership are transferred to the customers at the time when the products are delivered and there is no significant post-delivery obligation to the Company. In addition, the sales price is fixed or determinable and collection is reasonably assured. The Company does not provide customers with contractual rights of return for products. When there are significant post-delivery performance obligations, revenue is recognized only after such obligations are fulfilled. The Company evaluates the terms of the sales agreement with its customer in order to determine whether any significant post-delivery performance obligations exist. Currently, the sales do not include any terms which may impose any significant post-delivery performance obligations on the Company.

Revenue from the sales of the Company’s products represents the invoiced value of goods, net of the value-added tax (VAT). All of the Company’s products that are sold in the PRC are subject to a Chinese value-added tax at a rate of 17 percent of the gross sales price. This VAT may be offset by the VAT paid by the Company on raw and other materials that are included in the cost of producing the Company’s finished products.
 
Advertising expenses
 
Advertising costs are expensed as incurred.
 
Shipping and handling costs
 
All shipping and handling costs are included in cost of sales expenses.

Foreign Currency Translation

The Company’s functional and reporting currency is the United States dollar. Transactions may occur in Renminbi (“RMB”) dollars and management has adopted ASC 830,“Foreign Currency Matters”. The RMB is not freely convertible into foreign currencies. Monetary assets denominated in foreign currencies are translated using the exchange rate prevailing at the balance sheet date. Average monthly rates are used to translate revenues and expenses. The Company has not, to the date of these financial statements, entered into derivative instruments to offset the impact of foreign currency fluctuations.
 
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. Exchange gains or losses arising from foreign currency transactions are included in the determination of net income for the respective periods.

Assets and liabilities of the Company’s operations are translated into the reporting currency, United States dollars, at the exchange rate in effect at the balance sheet dates. Revenue and expenses are translated at average rates in effect during the reporting periods. Equity transactions are recorded at the historical rate when the transaction occurred. The resulting translation adjustment is reflected as accumulated other comprehensive income, a separate component of stockholders' equity in the statement of stockholders' equity.

Comprehensive Gain or Loss

ASC 220,“Comprehensive Income”, establishes standards for the reporting and display of comprehensive income and its components in the financial statements. As of June 30, 2012, the Company has items that represent comprehensive income and, therefore, has included a schedule of comprehensive income (loss) in the financial statements.

Acquisition of Wendeng He Xie Silicon Co., Ltd

Description of Transaction

On March 18, 2011, SunSi HK acquired a 60% equity interest in Wendeng He Xie Silicon Co., Ltd. (“Wendeng”) in exchange for total consideration of approximately $5.8 million comprised of the following:

(1)  
$445,075 of cash consideration;
(2)  
1,349,628 restricted shares of SunSi common stock, such shares carry an optional right of redemption whereby the Company shall buy such shares back from shareholder if shareholder exercises the option within six months at a price equivalent to RMB 18,000,000 on the transfer date; and
(3)  
1,574,566 restricted shares of SunSi common stock, transferred by an affiliate of SunSi.

As part of the closing, Wendeng was re-formed as a joint venture business under Chinese law and issued a new business license.

On June 13, 2011, SunSi HK executed an Addendum with Mr. Dongqiang Liu, the 40% minority shareholder of Wendeng, for the purpose of amending the terms to the Equity Transfer Agreement dated November 22, 2010, as amended on December 15, 2010 (collectively the “Original Agreement”), between the parties for the purchase of a 60% equity interest in Wendeng.
 
Under the terms of the Original Agreement,  the Company would have had an obligation, upon receiving formal notice from Mr. Dongqiang Liu, to buy back 1,349,628 shares of its common stock at a value of RMB 18,000,000 (approximately USD $2.00 per share) from Mr. Dongqiang Liu. The Addendum cancelled any potential obligation of the Company to buy back such shares and confirms that all purchase consideration is fully paid.

As a result of the Addendum, the Company reclassified the value of the common shares previously subject to the buyback provision, approximately $2.7 million, as additional paid-in capital. These shares were presented as redeemable common stock on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets in the prior period.

Founded in April 2008, Wendeng is located in Weihai City in the Shandong province of the People’s Republic of China. Wendeng manufactures and distributes trichlorosilane, a chemical primarily used in the production of polysilicon and an essential raw material utilized in the production of solar cells for photovoltaic panels which convert sunlight into electricity. All of Wendeng’s sales are to destinations within the People’s Republic of China.

The acquisition was accounted for as a business combination under the acquisition method of accounting in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles.

Below is a summary of the methodologies and significant assumptions used in estimating the fair value of intangible assets and noncontrolling interests.
 
 
Intangible assets — The fair value of the acquired intangible assets was determined using a variety of valuation approaches. In estimating the fair value of the acquired intangible assets, the Company utilized the valuation methodology determined to be most appropriate for the individual intangible asset being valued as described below. The acquired intangible assets include the following:

Method (2)
 
Estimated
Fair Value
   
Estimated
Useful Lives (1)
 
           
(in years)
 
Cu     Customer relationships
Multi-Period Excess Earnings
  $ 1,534,000       3  
 
(1)
Determination of the estimated useful lives of the individual categories of intangible assets was based on the nature of the applicable intangible asset and the expected future cash flows to be derived from the intangible asset. Amortization of intangible assets with definite lives is recognized over the shorter of the respective lives of the agreement or the period of time the assets are expected to contribute to future cash flows.
 
(2)
The multi-period excess earnings method estimates an intangible asset’s value based on the present value of the prospective net cash flows (or excess earnings) attributable to it. The value attributed to these intangibles was based on projected net cash inflows from existing contracts or customer relationships. This fair value measurement is based on significant inputs that are not observable in the market and thus represents a Level 3 measurement as defined in ASC Topic 820.
 
Some of the more significant estimates and assumptions inherent in determining the fair value of the customer relationships are associated with forecasting cash flows and profitability. The primary assumptions used were generally based upon the present value of anticipated cash flows, assuming a three year customer attrition rate, discounted to present value at a 25% rate.
 
 
Noncontrolling interests — The fair value of the noncontrolling interests of $2.9 million was estimated by applying the income approach. This fair value measurement is based on significant inputs that are not observable in the market and thus represents a Level 3 measurement as defined in ASC Topic 820. Key assumptions include (i) a compound annual sales growth rate of 33% for the five year period after the measurement date, (ii) a weighted average cost of capital of 19%, (iii) a terminal value based on a long-term sustainable growth rate of 3.5% and (iv) adjustments for lack of control and lack of marketability that market participants would consider when estimating the fair value of the noncontrolling interest in Wendeng.

Potential benefits of income tax losses are not recognized in the accounts until realization is more likely than not. The Company has incurred a net operating loss of approximately $2,790,000 which expires in 2031. Pursuant to ASC 740, the Company is required to compute tax asset benefits for net operating losses carried forward. Potential benefit of net operating losses have not been recognized in these financial statements because the Company cannot be assured it is more likely than not it will utilize the net operating losses carried forward in future years.

As a result of operations recorded at Baokai and Wendeng located in China, the Company recorded a net tax benefit of $281,518 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 based upon their estimated effective tax rates. Pursuant to the new PRC’s enterprise income tax (“EIT”) law, the Company is subject to EIT at the statutory rate of 25%. Income taxes in the statements of operations and comprehensive income (loss) represent current taxes for the periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011. The effective income tax rate has no material difference with the PRC statutory income tax rate of 25% for the periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.

The Company had no material adjustments to its liabilities for unrecognized income tax benefits according to the provision of FASB ASC 740. The Company has recorded no deferred tax assets or liabilities as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, since nearly all differences in tax basis and financial statement carrying values are permanent differences.

The tax years 2009 through 2011 remain open to examination by federal authorities and state jurisdictions where the Company operates.

STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

SunSi is authorized to issue 75,000,000 shares of common stock at a par value of $0.001 and had 30,412,234 and 30,005,628 shares of common stock issued and outstanding as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, respectively.

Beginning September 10, 2009, the Company conducted a private placement of its common stock at a price of $2.00 per share and a maximum issuance of 8,000,000 shares. The offer and sale of these securities was exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933 pursuant to Rule 506 of Regulation D. As such, all common shares issued under this private placement are restricted and subject to a minimum six month holding period. During the year ended December 31, 2011, the Company accepted subscription agreements from investors pursuant to this offering and issued 917,500 shares of its common stock for gross proceeds totaling $1,875,000. The cost of these issuances was $187,500.
 
On September 5, 2011, the Company closed this offering and commenced a new offering of 3.0 million shares at $3.00 per share. In October 2011, the Company accepted a subscription agreement from an investor for 40,000 shares of its common stock pursuant to this new offering. At December 31, 2011, the Company had received $120,000 in gross proceeds and incurred issuance costs of $12,000 as a result of the offering. In February, 2012, the Company issued an additional 20,000 shares of its common stock to the investor as a result of the offering amendment described below.
 
In February 2012, the Company amended this offering by reducing the share price from $3.00 to $2.00 per share. Since the amendment, the Company accepted subscription agreements from investors and issued 25,000 shares of its common stock for gross proceeds totaling $50,000. The cost of these issuances was $5,000. Additionally, the Company accepted subscription agreements from two of its officers and issued 75,000 shares of its common stock for gross proceeds totaling $150,000. The purchase of these shares is consistent with the terms of the Company’s private placement described above. There was no cost associated with the officer issuances.

During the six month period ended June 30, 2012, the Company issued 20,000 shares of its common stock valued at $2.00 per share in lieu of cash to settle outstanding accounts payable aggregating $40,000. Furthermore, the Company issued 15,174 shares of its common stock valued at $24,000, or approximately $1.58 per share, to its three independent directors in accordance with their board compensation agreements.
 
On June 13, 2011, SunSi HK executed an Addendum with Mr. Dongqiang Liu, the 40% minority shareholder of Wendeng, for the purpose of amending the terms to the Equity Transfer Agreement dated November 22, 2010, as amended on December 15, 2010 (collectively the “Original Agreement”), between the parties for the purchase of a 60% equity interest in Wendeng.

 
F-23

 
 
Under the terms of the Original Agreement,  the Company would have had an obligation, upon receiving formal notice from Mr. Dongqiang Liu, to buy back 1,349,628 shares of its common stock at a value of RMB 18,000,000 (approximately USD $2.00 per share) from Mr. Dongqiang Liu. The Addendum cancelled any potential obligation of the Company to buy back such shares and confirms that all purchase consideration is fully paid.

As a result of the Addendum, the Company reclassified the value of the common shares previously subject to the buyback provision, approximately $2.7 million, as additional paid-in capital. These shares were presented as redeemable common stock on the Company’s consolidated balance sheets in the prior period.

On June 14, 2012, the Company exchanged 251,432 shares of its common stock in connection with its equity investment in TransPacific Energy, Inc. (see “Note 8 – Investment in TransPacific Energy, Inc”).

COMMITMENTS
 
SunSi entered into various engagement agreements for advisory and consulting services on a non-exclusive basis to obtain equity capital. In the event that the Company completes a financing from a funding source provided by one of the consultants, then such consultant will receive a finders or referral fee at closing ranging from seven percent (7%) to ten percent (10%) of the amount received by the Company. The terms and condition of financing are subject to Company approval.
 
On November 10, 2009, the Company entered into an agreement to pay its Director of Business Development an annual amount of $60,000 plus any documented out of pocket business expenses. On May 15, 2009, the Company entered into an agreement to pay its Head Representative in China an annual amount of $60,000.

SEGMENT INFORMATION

As a result of the acquisition of its equity interest in Wendeng, the Company reassessed its requirement for segment reporting based on the operating and reporting structure of the combined company.

The Company utilized several criteria, including (i) the Company’s organizational structure, (ii) the manner in which the Company’s operations are managed, (iii) the criteria used by the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Operating Decision Maker (“CODM”), to evaluate segment performance and (iv) the availability of separate financial information, as a basis to identify its operating segments.

The Company determined that it has two reportable business segments, Baokai and Wendeng. The Baokai segment consists of the business of Zibo Baokai Commerce and Trade Co., Ltd., a company based in the Shandong province of the People’s Republic of China that distributes the trichlorosilane production of Zibo Baoyun Chemical Plant. The Wendeng segment consists of the operations of Wendeng He Xie Silicon Industry Co., Ltd., a company based in the Shandong province of the People’s Republic of China that directly manufactures and sells trichlorosilane.

The accounting policies of the reportable segments are the same as those described in Note 2 – Summary of Significant Accounting Policies to the consolidated financial statements. The Company’s CODM reviews financial information presented on a consolidated basis, accompanied by disaggregated information by segment for purpose of evaluating financial performance.

Operating segments do not sell products to each other, and accordingly, there is no inter-segment revenue to be reported. The negative sales amount reported by the Company’s Wendeng segment during the three month period ended June 30, 2012 is attributable to foreign currency translation adjustments as it did not record any sales during the period. Furthermore, the negative cost of goods sold amount reported by the Wendeng segment is as a result of an adjustment to its provision for excess or obsolete inventory offet in part by actual expenses realized.

Overview

SunSi Energies is a company whose products focus on the energy industry as well related synergistic products.SunSi is also a significant producer of trichlorosilane (“TCS”) in China. TCS is a chemical primarily used in the production of polysilicon, which is an essential raw material in the production of solar cells for PV panels that convert sunlight to electricity. TCS is considered to be the first product in the solar PV value chain before polysilicon, and is also the principal source of ultrapure silicon in the semiconductor industry. SunSi currently owns 45% of TransPacific Energy, Inc. (“TPE”), a U.S. based renewable energy technology provider, and expects to acquire controlling interest by late August 2012. TPE’s technology uses proprietary multiple component fluids that are environmentally sound, non-toxic and non-flammable. Custom formulated mixtures efficiently capture and convert heat directly from the heat source at temperatures ranging from 100 °F to 1000 °F. TPE’s technology offers applications at broader temperature ranges than other energy recovery systems. TPE’s systems in certain applications reduce operating and maintenance costs and significantly improves return on capital expenditures; thus making the purchase of waste heat recovery systems that previously yielded nominal savings, economically viable.

Acquisition of Zibo BaokaiCommerce and Trade Co. Ltd.
 
On December 8, 2010, SunSi Energies Hong Kong Limited (“SunSi HK”) acquired 90% of Zibo Baokai Commerce and Trade Co. Ltd. (“Baokai”) for $263,647, an acquisition which gave us the exclusive domestic and international distribution rights to 100% of the production of trichlorosilane from Zibo BaoyunChemical Plant (“ZBC”); however, we did not acquire any interest or ownership position in the ZBC factory. ZBC has an annual production capacity of 25,000 metric tons (“MT”).

As part of the Baokai distribution rights, ZBC agreed to sell Baokai all of its TCS production at a price of cost, plus a 10% to 15% mark-up depending on the nature of the sale. By mutual agreement with ZBC, Baokaiwill earn a profit margin of 2% on these sales because the sales came from existing customers of ZBC and from the efforts of the ZBC sales force.

Baokai has one client which comprised approximately 97% of their sales for the six month period ended June 30, 2012. The facility is easily accessible via rail and major highways, in addition to being well equipped for handling chemical products. We believe we can expand Baokai’s client base in the future, although there can be no assurances.

Acquisition of Wendeng He Xie Silicon Co. Ltd

On March 18, 2011, we acquired a 60% equity interest in Wendeng, a trichlorosilane manufacturing company, from Liu Dongqiang, a Chinese individual. Wendeng is located in the Shandong province of China close to strategic ports, including Weihai and Qingdao. The state-of-the-art Wendeng facility was built in 2008 and currently has an annual capacity of 30,000 MT of TCS. The Wendeng facility was designed and is currently managed by Zhang Fahe, who possesses over 30 years of experience in the Chinese chemical industry. Mr. Fahe has been working in the TCS field since 2001 where he developed efficient TCS production technologies. As part of the closing, Wendeng was re-formed as a joint venture business under Chinese law and issued a new business license.

As of March 18, 2011, Wendeng had a production capacity of approximately 20,000 MT tons of Trichlorosilane. As a result of closing the Wendeng Acquisition, SunSi began to immediately consolidate all of Wendeng’s revenues, and 60% of its profits. In October 2011, we expanded Wendeng’s production capacity to 30,000 MT.

On June 13, 2011, we amended the terms of the Wendeng Acquisition, whereby Mr. Liu canceled our obligation to buy back the 1,349,628 shares of our stock and confirmed that the purchase price for the 60% equity interest in Wendeng is fully paid. Such shares had been classified as “Redeemable Common Stock” on the Registrant's balance sheet and excluded from Stockholders’ Equity and are now included in the Company’s Stockholders’ Equity section of the balance sheet at a value of approximately $2.7 million.

TCS Market and our Future Strategy
 
During calendar year 2011, the world polysilicon prices decreased approximately 60% as the top five producers more than doubled output, according to data compiled by Bloomberg News. Polysilicon sold for as much as $400 per kilogram (“kg”) approximately four years ago and as recently as August 2011 was selling for $55 per kg. For the week ended August 8, 2012, the polysilicon spot price averaged approximately $21.00 per kg. As a result of historically low prices for polysilicon in November and December of 2011, about 90 percent of China’s polysilicon plants, comprising half of the country’s production suspended output in November and December according to the China Nonferrous Metals Industrial Association, which acts as a conduit between industry and government. This oversupply situation has continued throughout 2012 with an estimated 50-80% of China’s polysilicon capacity currently idle.

Since November 2011, the low price of polysilicon coupled with the significant oversupply of polysiliconhas had a material adverse impact on the price that we could sell TCS for and the level of plant utilization at Wendeng and our exclusive supplier to Baokai, ZBC. This has negatively impacted our revenues and results of operations. Due to the current polysilicon oversupply situation we believe that an industry consolidation is occurring where we will emerge as one of the strongest entities and lowest cost producers. The ZBC facility which supplies TCS for Baokai has been open for portions of 2012. Our Wendeng facility has been closed since December 2011. We had expected Wendeng to open in 2012; however, the ongoing low pricing of polysilicon and the dumping of polysilicon inventories below cost by many polysilicon companies in order to generate cash flow has resulted in low price bids from our customers to supply them TCS at levels which would not enable us to operate profitably. Currently during the shutdown period, the Baokai distribution segment is at a breakeven level because we are not incurring any significant marketing or business development expenses directly associated with Baokai operations.

During 2012, our cash operating losses at Wendeng were approximately $20,000per month. These losses are significantly less than the loss we would have incurred by producing TCS and selling it at the market price during 2012. Therefore, our operating losses were lower by staying closed rather than manufacturing TCS at a significantly higher loss.

Our Wendeng facility has sold some of its existing inventory during 2012 at a loss; however, it has not manufactured any TCS during 2012. In early August 2012, Wendeng received a firm order to produce 1000 MT of TCS at price of approximately $635 per MT. This price will enable Wendeng to manufacture at a cash profit. Wendeng has signed a firm commitment with the buyer of this TCS and is contractually required to deliver it at the agreed upon price. As a result, Wendeng has recalled its employees and is preparing to open the factory at the end of August or in early September 2012. Additionally, as a result of this order Wendeng will produce an additional 500 metric tons of TCS during September 2012 to fill a small backlog of existing orders from small clients. Wendeng management believes it can maintain sales of 1,500 MT per month for the immediate future because it believes the current buyer of the 1,000 MT will purchase this quantity each month for the immediate future. We believe that Wendeng is one of the few remaining TCS producers in China that can produce TCS at these price levels and make a cash profit (excluding depreciation expense on equipment) on TCS production. There can be no assurances that Wendeng can maintain these levels of sales in subsequent months or that the price of polysilicon will not continue to fall.
 
Acquisition of TransPacific Energy, Inc.

On May 10 and May 17, 2012, we entered into two share exchange agreements with shareholders of TransPacific Energy, Inc. (“TPE”), respectively, to purchase an aggregate controlling equity interest in TPE.

TPE is a high tech corporationfocused on renewable energy that designs, builds, owns, operates, sells and installs proprietary modular Organic Rankine Cycles(“ORC”) utilizing multiple refrigerant mixtures to maximize heat recovery and convert waste heat directly from industrial processes, solar and geothermal, biomass converting it into electrical energy. TPE technology can also be utilized as an alternative to cooling towers, steam condensers and use heat released to efficiently generate electricity with air cooled or water cooled condensers. TPE converts waste heat into clean electricity using multi component fluids environmentally sound non-toxic, non-flammable, in contrast to the typical Organic Rankine Cycle that uses binary cycles and organic fluids such as pentane, isobutene, butane, propane and ammonia instead of water. Other applications include solar, geothermal energy as well as warm ocean waters.

Potential applications include any process that generates waste heat/flue gas such as industrial smokestacks, landfills, geothermal, solar, landfills, garbage incinerators, warm ocean waters and many other applications. For example, TPE is now bidding on an ORC application/TPE fluids for a huge data room in China where computers throw off heat and want to re-cycle it into clean electricity at a lower cost than can be purchased from the utility/grid.

According to the International Energy Agency (“IEA”) electricity demand is expected to double by 2030 and by then $11 trillion is expected to be spent worldwide on energy infrastructure; with there newable energy segment that TPE operates in, expected to be a $500 billion component by 2017.

The first share exchange agreement was entered into between SunSi, TPE and its shareholders ABH Holdings, LLC, Acme Energy, Inc., and Apela Holdings LLC, pursuant to which SunSi agreed to purchase from such shareholders 11,667,101 shares of the total 31,543,336 outstanding shares of TPE. The TPE shares being sold to SunSi are valued at $0.06 per share and the SunSi consideration for such TPE shares shall be shares of SunSi common stock valued at the price equal to the 30 day weighted-average closing trading price of SunSi’s common stock as quoted on the OTCQB or NASDAQ immediately prior to the respective closing date. The first closing was scheduled to occur at such time SunSi purchased from TPE an additional $150,000 in the common stock of TPE, payable in cash, which had to occur prior to June 15, 2012, and thereafter, there may occur a subsequent closing at each time SunSi purchases an additional $100,000 of TPE common stock, until a final closing at such time as SunSi has purchased a total of $500,000 of TPE common stock, which must occur prior to September 30, 2012. All purchases of TPE common stock there under are priced at $0.06 per share.

The second share exchange agreement was entered into between SunSi and Soffimat Holdings SA, a shareholder of TPE, pursuant to which SunSi shall purchase from such shareholder 4,420,000 shares of TPE common stock. This transaction was scheduled to occur before June 15, 2012.

As of June 30, 2012 the Company was in compliance with all terms of each agreement and had paid TPE $150,000 and had exchanged 251,432 of its shares valued at $1.89 per share in return for approximately a 31% interest in TPE. Subsequent to June 30, 2012, the Company increased its ownership percentage to approximately 45% and expects to gain controlling interest (over 50%) in August 2012.
 
Results of Operations for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011

In December 2010 and March 2011, we completed the acquisitions of our Baokai and Wendeng subsidiaries, respectively. As a result, we emerged from Development Stage Company as defined by ASC Topic 915 and began to generate revenue from our operations. Comparisons between the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 may not be indicative of current trends.
