NOTE 1 DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS AND ORGANIZATION

Nutrastar International Inc. (“Nutrastar” or the “Company”) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on December 22, 2002. On December 23, 2008, the Company completed a reverse acquisition with New Zealand WAYNE’S New Resources Development Co., Ltd. (“New Resources”). As a result of the reverse acquisition with New Resources, the Company is no longer a shell company and active business operations have been revived. Nutrastar together with its subsidiaries and affiliates as described below are referred to as the “Company”.

On May 19, 2009, the Company filed Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation with the State of Nevada to amend the Company’s Articles of Incorporation to, among other things, (1) change the name of the Company from “YzApp International Inc.” to “Shuaiyi International New Resources Development Inc.,” (2) increase the total number of shares of common stock that the Company has the authority to issue from 50,000,000 to 190,000,000 shares and (3) effect a one for 114.59 reverse split of the Company’s outstanding common stock. The detailed description of the amendment was provided in the Company’s Form 8-K filed on May 26, 2009.

On January 11, 2010, the Company filed a Certificate of Amendment to its Articles of Incorporation with the State of Nevada, pursuant to which the Company further changed its name from "Shuaiyi International New Resources Development Inc." to "Nutrastar International Inc."

On October 22, 2010, New Resources, a wholly-owned British Virgin Islands subsidiary of the Company, entered into an equity transfer agreement with the original founders of Heilongjiang Shuaiyi (the “Shuaiyi Founders”), pursuant to which New Resources transferred all of its equity interests in Heilongjiang Shuaiyi New Energy Development Co., Ltd. (“Heilongjiang Shuaiyi”), a then wholly-owned Chinese subsidiary of New Resources, to the Shuaiyi Founders (the “Equity Transfer”).

In connection with the Equity Transfer, the Shuaiyi Founders, the Company’s indirectly wholly-owned Chinese subsidiary incorporated on July 13, 2010, Harbin Baixin Biotech Development Co., Ltd. (“Harbin Baixin”) and Heilongjiang Shuaiyi entered into the following commercial arrangements (the “Contractual Arrangement” and together with the Equity Transfer, the “Restructuring”), pursuant to which the Company has contractual rights to control and operate the businesses of Heilongjiang Shuaiyi and Heilongjiang Shuaiyi's two wholly-owned Chinese subsidiaries, Daqing Shuaiyi Biotech Co., Ltd. (“Daqing Shuaiyi”) and Harbin Shuaiyi Green & Specialty Food Trading LLC (“Harbin Shuaiyi” and together with Heilongjiang Shuaiyi and Daqing Shuaiyi, the “VIEs”):

Service Agreement
Pursuant to a technical service agreement, entered into by and between Harbin Baixin and Heilongjiang Shuaiyi, Harbin Baixin will provide certain exclusive technical services to Heilongjiang Shuaiyi in exchange for the payment by Heilongjiang Shuaiyi of a service fee that is calculated based on the market price in light of the particulars of the service and the time of such service provided by Harbin Baixin (the “Service Agreement”);

Option Agreement
Pursuant to an exclusive purchase option agreement, entered into by and among Harbin Baixin, the Shuaiyi Founders and Heilongjiang Shuaiyi, the Shuaiyi Founders granted to Harbin Baixin an option to purchase at any time during the term of this agreement, all or part of the equity interests in Heilongjiang Shuaiyi (the “Equity Interests”), at the exercise price equal to the lowest possible price permitted by Chinese laws (the “Option Agreement”);

NOTE 1 DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS AND ORGANIZATION (CONTINUED)

Voting Rights Agreement
Pursuant to a voting rights proxy agreement, entered into by and among Harbin Baixin, the Shuaiyi Founders and Heilongjiang Shuaiyi, each of the Shuaiyi Founders irrevocably entrusted Harbin Baixin and any entities or individuals designated by Harbin Baixin to, among others, exercise its voting rights and other rights as a shareholder of Heilongjiang Shuaiyi (the “Voting Rights Agreement”); and

Pledge agreement
Pursuant to an equity pledge agreement, entered into by and among Harbin Baixin, the Shuaiyi Founders and Heilongjiang Shuaiyi, the Founders pledged all of the Equity Interests to Harbin Baixin to secure the full and complete performance of the obligations and liabilities on the part of the Shuaiyi Founders and Heilongjiang Shuaiyi under this and above contractual arrangements (the “Pledge Agreement” and together with the Service Agreement, the Option Agreement, the Voting Rights Agreement and the Equity Transfer Agreement, the “Restructuring Documents”).

As a result of the Restructuring, the Company transferred all of its indirect equity interests in Heilongjiang Shuaiyi back to the Shuaiyi Founders, among whom, Ms. Lianyun Han became a majority shareholder of Heilongjiang Shuaiyi by owning a 68.3% equity interest in Heilongjiang Shuaiyi. At the same time, through the above contractual agreement, the Company maintains substantial control over the VIEs’ daily operations and financial affairs, election of their senior executives and all matters requiring shareholder approval. As the primary beneficiary of the VIEs, the Company is entitled to consolidate the financial results of the VIEs in its own consolidated financial statements under Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standard Codification (ASC) Topic 810 and related subtopics related to the consolidation of variable interest entities (collectively, “ASC Topic 810”).

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of Nutrastar and its wholly owned subsidiaries, New Resources, Oriental Global and Harbin Baixin, and its VIEs, Heilongjiang Shuaiyi, Daqing Shuaiyi and Harbin Shuaiyi. All significant inter-company balances or transactions have been eliminated on consolidation.

The Company has evaluated the relationship with Heilongjiang Shuaiyi, Daqing Shuaiyi and Harbin Shuaiyi and based on the result of the evaluation, believes that these entities are variable interest entities and that it is the primary beneficiary of these entities. Consequently, the Company has included the results of operations of these variable interest entities in the condensed consolidated financial statements. The Company’s relationships with Heilongjiang Shuaiyi, Daqing Shuaiyi and Harbin Shuaiyi are governed by a series of contractual arrangements. Under PRC laws, Heilongjiang Shuaiyi, Daqing Shuaiyi and Harbin Shuaiyi are independent legal persons and none of them is exposed to liabilities incurred by the other parties.

The accounts of Heilongjiang Shuaiyi, Daqing Shuaiyi and Harbin Shuaiyi are consolidated in the accompanying condensed financial statements pursuant to the Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standard Codification (ASC) Topic 810 and related subtopics related to the consolidation of variable interest entities. The Company does not have any non-controlling interests in net income and accordingly, did not subtract any net income in calculating the net income attributable to the Company. Because of the contractual arrangements, the Company had a pecuniary interest in the VIEs that require consolidation of the Company’s and the VIEs’ financial statements.

Use of estimates
The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires the Company to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of these condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Accordingly, actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. Significant estimates for the periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 include the useful lives of property and equipment and intangible assets, assumptions used in assessing impairment for long-term assets and the fair values of share-based payments and warrants granted.

NOTE 2 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICES (CONTINUED)

Cash and cash equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents consist of all cash balances and highly liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less. Because of the short maturity of these investments, the carrying amounts approximate their fair value. Restricted cash is excluded from cash and cash equivalents.

Accounts receivable
Accounts receivable is stated at cost, net of an allowance for doubtful accounts. The Company maintains allowances for doubtful accounts for estimated losses resulting from the failure of customers to make required payments. The Company reviews the accounts receivable on a periodic basis and provides allowances where there is doubt as to the collectability of individual balances. In evaluating the collectability of individual receivable balances, the Company considers many factors, including the age of the balance, the customer’s payment history, its current credit-worthiness and current economic trends.

Inventories
Inventories are stated at the lower of cost, determined on a weighted average basis, or market. Costs of inventories include purchase and related costs incurred in bringing the products to their present location and condition. Market value is determined by reference to selling prices after the balance sheet date or to management’s estimates based on prevailing market conditions. Management will write down the inventories to market value if it is below cost. Management also regularly evaluates the composition of its inventories to identify slow-moving and obsolete inventories to determine if a valuation allowance is required.

Derivative financial instruments
The Company evaluates all its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then revalued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the consolidated statements of income. For stock-based derivative financial instruments, the Company uses Monte-Carlo simulation methods to value the derivative instruments at inception and on subsequent valuation dates.

Property, plant and equipment
Property, plant and equipment are stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and accumulated impairment losses, if any. Gains or losses on disposals are reflected as gain or loss in the year of disposal. The cost of improvements that extend the life of property, plant and equipment are capitalized. These capitalized costs may include structural improvements, equipment and fixtures. All ordinary repair and maintenance costs are expensed as incurred.

Depreciation for financial reporting purposes is provided using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the assets as follows:

  Useful Life
  (In years)
Buildings 20
Machinery and motor vehicles 5-10
Office equipment 2-5

Construction in progress
Construction in progress includes direct costs of construction of buildings, equipment and other assets. Interest incurred during the period of construction, if material, is capitalized. Construction in progress is not depreciated until such time as the assets are completed and put into service.

Intangible assets
The Company’s intangible assets include a ten-year exclusive right to use a proprietary process and computer software. The Company’s amortization policy on intangible assets is as follows:

  Useful Life
  (In years)
Exclusive right 10
Computer software 4

The Company accounts for its intangible assets pursuant to FASB ASC Subtopic 350-30, “General Intangibles Other Than Goodwill”. Under ASC 350-30-35, intangibles with definite lives continue to be amortized on a straight-line basis over the lesser of their estimated useful lives or contractual terms. Intangibles with indefinite lives are evaluated at least annually for impairment by comparing the asset’s estimated fair value with its carrying value, based on cash flow methodology.

Impairment of long-lived assets
The Company reviews and evaluates its long-lived assets for impairment when events or changes in circumstances indicate that the related carrying amounts may not be recoverable. An impairment is considered to exist if the total estimated future cash flows on an undiscounted basis are less than the carrying amount of the assets, including goodwill, if any. An impairment loss is measured and recorded based on discounted estimated future cash flows. In estimating future cash flows, assets are grouped at the lowest level for which there is identifiable cash flows that are largely independent of future cash flows from other asset groups.

Revenue recognition
Revenue is recognized when the following four revenue criteria are met: persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred, the selling price is fixed or determinable, and collectability is reasonably assured.

Sales revenue is recognized net of value added and sales related taxes, sales discounts and returns at the time when the merchandise is delivered to the customer. Based on historical experience, management estimates that sales returns are immaterial and has not recorded an allowance for estimated sales returns.

Share-based payments
The Company accounts for share-based compensation awards to employees in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718, “Compensation – Stock Compensation”, which requires that share-based payment transactions with employees be measured based on the grant-date fair value of the equity instrument issued and recognized as compensation expense over the requisite service period.

The Company accounts for share-based compensation awards to non-employees in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718 and FASB ASC Subtopic 505-50, “Equity-Based Payments to Non-employees”. Under FASB ASC Topic 718 and FASB ASC Subtopic 505-50, stock compensation granted to non-employees has been determined as the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measured and is recognized as expense as the goods or services are received.

Income taxes
The Company is subject to income taxes in the United States and other foreign jurisdictions where it operates. The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes”. FASB ASC Topic 740 requires an asset and liability approach for financial accounting and reporting for income taxes and allows recognition and measurement of deferred tax assets based upon the likelihood of realization of tax benefits in future years. Under the asset and liability approach, deferred taxes are provided for the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes. A valuation allowance is provided for deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not these items will either expire before the Company is able to realize their benefits, or that future deductibility is uncertain.

The Company’s income tax returns are subject to examination by the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) and other tax authorities in the locations where it operates. The Company assesses potentially unfavorable outcomes of such examinations based on the criteria of FASB ASC 740-10-25-5 through 740-10-25-7 and 740-10-25-13 (formerly FASB Interpretation No. 48 (“FIN 48”) “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes”). The interpretation prescribes a more-likely-than-not threshold for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken (or expected to be taken) in a tax return. This Interpretation also provides guidance on derecognition of income tax assets and liabilities, classification of current and deferred income tax assets and liabilities, accounting for interest and penalties associated with tax positions, accounting for income taxes in interim periods and income tax disclosures.

Research and development costs
Research and development costs are expensed as incurred, and are charged to general and administrative expenses. Research and development costs were $91,354 and $55,267 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $57,361 and $27,412 for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Advertising costs
The Company expenses all advertising costs as incurred. Advertising costs charged to selling expenses were $2,204 and $59,468 for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, and $16 and $36,804 for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

Shipping and handling costs
Substantially all costs of shipping and handling of products to customers are included in selling expense. Shipping and handling costs for the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 were insignificant.

Comprehensive income
FASB ASC Topic 220, “Comprehensive Income”, establishes standards for reporting and displaying comprehensive income and its components in the consolidated financial statements. Accumulated other comprehensive income includes foreign currency translation adjustments.

NOTE 2 SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICES (CONTINUED)

Foreign currency
The Company uses the United States dollar (“US Dollar” or “US$” or “$”) for financial reporting purposes. The PRC subsidiaries and VIEs within the Company maintain their books and records in their functional currency, Chinese Renminbi (“RMB”), being the lawful currency in the PRC. Assets and liabilities of the PRC subsidiaries and VIEs are translated from RMB into US Dollars using the applicable exchange rates prevailing at the balance sheet date. Items on the statements of income and cash flows are translated at average exchange rates during the reporting period. Equity accounts are translated at historical rates. Adjustments resulting from the translation of the Company’s financial statements are recorded as accumulated other comprehensive income.

The exchange rates used to translate amounts in RMB into US Dollars for the purposes of preparing the consolidated financial statements are based on the rates as published on the website of People’s Bank of China and are as follows:

    June 30, 2012     December 31, 2011  
Balance sheet items, except for equity accounts   US$1=RMB 6.3249     US$1=RMB6.3009  

    Three months ended June 30,  
    2012     2011  
Items in the statements of income and cash flows   US$1=RMB 6.3074     US$1=RMB6.5011  

    Six months ended June 30,  
    2012     2011  
Items in the statements of income and cash flows   US$1=RMB 6.3074     US$1=RMB6.5411  

No representation is made that the RMB amounts could have been, or could be, converted into US Dollars at the above rates. The value of RMB against US dollars and other currencies may fluctuate and is affected by, among other things, changes in China’s political and economic conditions. Any significant revaluation of RMB may materially affect the Company’s financial condition in terms of US Dollar reporting.

Segment reporting
The Company follows FASB ASC Topic 280, “Segment Reporting”, which requires that companies disclose segment data based on how management makes decisions about allocating resources to segments and evaluating their performance.

The Company believes that during the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, it operated in three business segments – growing and sales of Cordyceps Militaris, which is widely used for Chinese medicine, manufacturing and sale of functional health beverages featuring the Cordyceps Militaris as a core ingredient, and sales of organic and specialty products. The manufacturing and sale of Cordyceps Militaris functional health beverages was launched in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Throughout the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, all of the Company’s operations were carried out in one geographical segment - China.

Earnings per share
The Company reports earnings per share in accordance with the provisions of FASB ASC Topic 260, "Earnings per Share". FASB ASC Topic 260 requires presentation of basic and diluted earnings per share in conjunction with the disclosure of the methodology used in computing such earnings per share. Basic earnings per share excludes dilution and is computed by dividing income available to common stockholders by the weighted average common shares outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings per share takes into account the potential dilution (using the treasury stock method) that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised and converted into common stock.

Commitments and contingencies
The Company follows FASB ASC Subtopic 450-20, “Loss Contingencies” in determining its accruals and disclosures with respect to loss contingencies. Accordingly, estimated losses from loss contingencies are accrued by a charge to income when information available prior to issuance of the financial statements indicates that it is probable that a liability could be incurred and the amount of the loss can be reasonably estimated. Legal expenses associated with the contingency are expensed as incurred. If a loss contingency is not probable or reasonably estimable, disclosure of the loss contingency is made in the financial statements when it is at least reasonably possible that a material loss could be incurred.

Recent accounting pronouncements
In December 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-11 —Balance Sheet (Topic 210). The objective of this update is to provide enhanced disclosures that will enable users of its financial statements to evaluate the effect or potential effect of netting arrangements on an entity’s financial position. This includes the effect or potential effect of rights of setoff associated with an entity’s recognized assets and recognized liabilities within the scope of this update. The amendments require enhanced disclosures by requiring improved information about financial instruments and derivative instruments that are either (1) offset in accordance with either Section 210-20-45 or Section 815-10-45 or (2) subject to an enforceable master netting arrangement or similar agreement, irrespective of whether they are offset in accordance with either Section 210-20-45 or Section 815-10-45. An entity is required to apply the amendments for annual reporting periods beginning on or after January 1, 2013, and interim periods within those annual periods. An entity should provide the disclosures required by those amendments retrospectively for all comparative periods presented. The Company does not expect the adoption of the provisions in this update will have a significant impact on its consolidated financial statements.

In July 2012, the FASB issued 2012-02 Intangibles — Goodwill and Other (Topic 350): The amendments in this update will allow an entity to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether it is necessary to perform a quantitative impairment test. Under these amendments, an entity would not be required to calculate the fair value of an indefinite-lived intangible asset unless the entity determines, based on qualitative assessment, that it is not more likely than not, the indefinite-lived intangible asset is impaired. The amendments include a number of events and circumstances for an entity to consider in conducting the qualitative assessment. The amendments are effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012. Early adoption is permitted, including for annual and interim impairment tests performed as of a date before July 27, 2012, if a public entity’s financial statements for the most recent annual or interim period have not yet been issued.

Other accounting standards that have been issued or proposed by the FASB or other standards-setting bodies that do not require adoption until a future date are not expected to have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements upon adoption.

NOTE 3 FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS AND FINANCIAL INSTRUMENTS

The Company values its financial instruments as required by FASB ASC 320-12-65 (formerly SFAS No. 107, “Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments”). The estimated fair value amounts have been determined by the Company, using available market information or other appropriate valuation methodologies. However, considerable judgment is required in interpreting market data to develop estimates of fair value. Consequently, the estimates are not necessarily indicative of the amounts that could be realized or would be paid in a current market exchange.

ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurement and Disclosures, defines fair value as the exchange price that would be received for an asset or paid to transfer a liability (an exit price) in the principal or most advantageous market for the asset or liability in an orderly transaction between market participants on the measurement date. This topic also establishes a fair value hierarchy which requires classification based on observable and unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. The fair value hierarchy distinguishes between assumptions based on market data (observable inputs) and an entity’s own assumptions (unobservable inputs). The hierarchy consists of three levels:

Level one —  

Quoted market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities;

Level two —  

Inputs other than level one inputs that are either directly or indirectly observable; and

Level three —  

Unobservable inputs developed using estimates and assumptions, which are developed by the reporting entity and reflect those assumptions that a market participant would use.

Determining which category an asset or liability falls within the hierarchy requires significant judgment. The Company evaluates its hierarchy disclosures each quarter.

Assets and liabilities measured at fair value on a recurring basis are summarized as follows:

    Fair value measurement using inputs     Carrying amount at  
Financial instruments   Level 1     Level 2     Level 3     June 30, 2012  
                         
Liabilities:                        
   Derivative instruments – $  —   $  3,652   $  —   $  3,652  
     Warrants                        
Total $  —   $  3,652   $  —   $  3,652  

Financial instruments   Level 1     Level 2     Level 3     December 31, 2011  
                         
Liabilities:                        
   Derivative instruments – $  —   $  144,441   $  —   $  144,441  
     Warrants                        
Total $  —   $  144,441   $  —   $  144,441  

The carrying values of cash and cash equivalents, trade and other receivables and payables approximate their fair values due to the short maturities of these instruments.

There was no asset or liability measured at fair value on a non-recurring basis as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011.

NOTE 12 STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY

Private Placement in 2010
On May 27, 2010, the Company entered into a securities purchase agreement (the "Securities Purchase Agreement") with certain investors, pursuant to which, the Company agreed to issue and sell up to an aggregate of 250,000 units at a purchase price of $28.56 per unit, for an aggregate purchase price of up to $7,140,000 (the "Aggregate Purchase Price"). Each unit consists of (i) one share of a newly designated series A preferred stock, ("Series A Preferred Stock"), with an initial one-to-ten conversion ratio convertible into shares of the Company’s common stock, ("Common Stock"), and (ii) warrants to purchase five shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $3.40 per share ("Warrants", together with the shares of Series A Preferred Stock, the "Securities"). In addition, the Company and the investors agreed, that the placement agent of this transaction, will receive from the investors a fee equal to 2% of the Aggregate Purchase Price and Warrants to purchase 2% of the aggregate number of shares of Common Stock that shares of Series A Preferred Stock to be issued under the Securities Purchase Agreement are convertible into.

On June 7, 2010, the Company consummated the first closing of the private placement transaction and issued approximately 123,403 units at a purchase price of $28.56 per unit for gross proceeds of $3,524,342.

Pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement, a written request was received from a holder holding a majority of Series A Preferred Stock on July 14, 2010 and the Company filed the Registration Statement on August 11, 2010. The Registration Statement was declared effective by the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) on September 15, 2010.

In connection with the adoption of the Repurchase Program, the Company entered into an amendment agreement (“Amendment No. 1”) with the investors to amend the Securities Purchase Agreement. Specifically, under Amendment No. 1, the Company may use the proceeds of the private placement for general corporate and working capital purposes and acquisition of assets, businesses or operations or for other purposes that the Board of Directors in good faith deems to be in the best interest of the Company, including the repurchase or redemption of shares of the Company’s capital stock.

Also on August 24, 2011, the Company entered into a lock up agreement with the investors, pursuant to which the investors agreed not to sell, transfer or dispose of, directly or indirectly, any shares of Company common stock or any securities convertible into or exercisable or exchangeable for shares of Company common stock that it beneficially owns without a prior written consent of the Company for a period of six months.

During the six months ended June 30, 2012, the Company repurchased 38,894 shares of the Company’s common stock under the Repurchase Program at an average price of $1.78 per share.

Allocation of Proceeds in the Private Placement
The guidance provided in ASC 470-20-30-5 has been applied to the amount allocated to the convertible Series A Preferred Stock, and the effective conversion price has been used, to measure the intrinsic value, if any, of the embedded conversion option. The fair value of the embedded conversion features of the Series A Preferred Stock of $1,143,198 and $644,532 were calculated using the intrinsic value model in accordance with the guidance provided in ASC Topic 470-20-30-6 (formerly EITF 00-27, “Application of Issue No. 98-5 to Certain Convertible Instruments”) and limited to the amount of the proceeds allocated to the convertible instrument on June 7, 2010 and June 28, 2010, respectively. The intrinsic value of the beneficial conversion feature was calculated by comparing the effective conversion price, which was determined based on the proceeds from the private placement allocated to the convertible Series A Preferred Stock, and the market price of the Company’s common stock of $3.20 and $3.16 on June 7, 2010 and June 28, 2010, respectively. The fair value of $1,143,198 and $644,532 of the beneficial conversion feature has been recognized as a reduction to the carrying amount of the convertible Series A Preferred Stock and an addition to paid-in capital.

The following table sets out the allocation of the proceeds from the Private Placement:

  (104,490 )

Convertible Series A Preferred Stock at June 30, 2012

$  546,618  

In accordance with ASC Topic 470-20-30-6, the discount on the Series A Preferred Stock resulting from the accounting for a beneficial conversion feature was amortized and charged to retained earnings, because the Series A Preferred Stock is immediately convertible upon issuance and has no stated redemption date. Amortization of the discount resulting from the accounting for a beneficial conversion feature is considered analogous to a return to holders of perpetual preferred stock and has been accounted for as a reduction to net income available to common stockholders for the purpose of calculation of earnings per share.

NOTE 12 STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY (CONTINUED)

Preferred Stock
The Board of the Company is authorized, without further action by the shareholders, to issue, from time to time, up to 1,000,000 shares of preferred stock in one or more classes or series. Similarly, the Board is authorized to fix or alter the designations, powers, preferences and the number of shares which constitute each such class or series of preferred stock. Such designations, powers or preferences may include, without limitation, dividend rights (and whether dividends are cumulative), conversion rights, if any, voting rights (including the number of votes, if any, per share), redemption rights (including sinking fund provisions, if any), and liquidation preferences of any unissued shares or wholly unissued series of preferred stock.

On May 27, 2010, the Company created, from the authorized but unissued shares of its preferred stock, a series of preferred stock consisting of 300,000 shares and has designated this series of preferred stock as the Series A Preferred Stock of which the Company issued 197,706 shares upon the closings of the private placement in 2010.

The following are the principal terms of the Series A Preferred Stock:

Rank: The Series A Preferred Stock ranks senior to the Company’s common stock, but junior to all indebtedness of the Company.

Dividend: Holders of the Series A Preferred Stock are entitled to a cumulative dividend at an annual rate of 6% of the Series A Preferred Stock, payable in additional shares of Series A Preferred Stock, compounded quarterly, and payable upon the occurrence of a Liquidation Event, Conversion, Mandatory Conversion or from time-to-time at the discretion of the Board. When dividends on the Series A Preferred Stock are paid, each such additional share of Series A Preferred Stock shall be valued at the Original Series A Purchase Price, which may be adjusted from time to time pursuant to a split, subdivision, combination or other similar events.

Optional Conversion: Shares of the Series A Preferred Stock are optionally convertible into fully paid and non-assessable shares of Common Stock at a conversion rate calculated by dividing (i) $28.00 per share plus any declared, accrued but unpaid dividends by (ii) the conversion price (the “Conversion Price”), which is initially $2.80 per share, subject to adjustment as provided in the Certificate. Initially, each share of Series A Preferred Stock is convertible into 10 shares of Common Stock.

Mandatory Conversion: All outstanding shares of the Series A Preferred Stock will automatically convert to shares of Common Stock, subject to the conversion restrictions set forth in the Certificate of Designation (the "Mandatory Conversion"), at the earlier to occur of (i) the Company’s shares of Common Stock are listed on the New York Stock Exchange, the NYSE Amex, the NASDAQ Global Market, the NASDAQ Global Select Market or the NASDAQ Capital Market (each, a "National Stock Exchange") and the registration statement on Form S-1 or such other appropriate form promulgated by the SEC registering the Common Stock underlying the Securities pursuant to the Securities Purchase Agreement is declared effective by the Commission, and (ii) 12 months from the date that the Company's shares of Common Stock are first listed on a National Stock Exchange.

Adjustment to Conversion Price: If the Company shall issue any additional stock without consideration or for consideration per share less than the Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to the issuance of such additional stock, then such Conversion Price in effect immediately prior to such issuance shall be adjusted to a price determined by multiplying such Conversion Price by a fraction:

Sum of (x) the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the issuance of such additional stock plus (y) the number of shares of Common Stock that the aggregate consideration received by the Company for the total number of such additional stock so issued would purchase at Conversion Price (divided by) (x) the number of shares of Common Stock outstanding immediately prior to the issuance of such additional stock plus (y) the number of shares of such additional stock so issued.

NOTE 12 STOCKHOLDERS’ EQUITY (CONTINUED)

Preferred Stock (continued)

Voting: The holders of the Series A Preferred Stock will vote on an "as converted" basis, together with the Common Stock, as a single class, in connection with any proposal submitted to the Company’s stockholders, except as required by Nevada law.

Liquidation Preference: The Series A Preferred Stock has a preference over the Company’s common stock on the Company’s liquidation, dissolution or winding up equal to $28 per share of the Series A Preferred Stock plus any accrued but unpaid dividends thereon, as of the date of liquidation.

Registration Rights: The holders of Series A Preferred Stock have the right to request the Company to file a Registration Statement to register “Registrable Securities” (which include the common stock into which the Series A Preferred Stock and Warrants are convertible). Upon such request, no later than 30 days upon receipt of such request (the “Required Filing Date”) the Company should use its commercially reasonable efforts to register the Common Stock underlying the Registrable Securities and have the Registration Statement declared effective by the SEC which is not later than the earlier of (x) 150 calendar days after the Required Filing Date, or (y) if the Registration Statement is not reviewed by the SEC, 5 business days after oral or written notice to the Company or its counsel from the SEC that there will not be a review.

Effect of failure to file and obtain and maintain effectiveness of Registration Statement – the Company shall pay to each holder of Registrable Securities an amount in cash equal to 1% of the aggregate purchase price of the Securities owned by such holder as liquidated damages, but in no event shall liquidated damages exceed 8% of the Purchase Price.

Accounting for Series A Preferred Stock

The Company has evaluated the terms of the Series A Preferred Stock and determined that the Series A Preferred Stock, without embodying an obligation for the Company to repurchase or to settle by transferring assets, is not a liability in accordance with the guidance provided in ASC Topic 480, Distinguishing Liabilities from Equity.

Also, the Series A Preferred Stock has no redemption clause at all, it is not a mezzanine equity (out of permanent equity) in accordance with the requirement of ASC 480-10-S99.

The Series A Preferred Stock is not subject to redemption (except on liquidation) and the holders of the Series A Preferred Stock are entitled to vote together with common stock holders on an as-converted basis. The Series A Preferred Stock, excluding the embedded conversion option, are considered to be an equity instrument and accordingly, the embedded conversion option has not been separated and accounted for as a derivative instrument liability.

During the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, 34,810 shares and 46,669 shares, respectively, of Series A Preferred Stock were converted into 348,100 shares and 466,690 shares of common stock, respectively, at a 1 for 10 ratio. In addition, during the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, 34,150 shares and 21,140 shares of common stock were issued to the investors as settlement of stock dividends of $201,705 and $58,964, respectively.

Common Stock Purchase Warrants

Series C Warrants

In connection with the issuance of the Series A Preferred Stock, the Company issued Series C Warrants to the investors and the placement agent to purchase up to 592,327 and 24,681 shares, respectively, of common stock on June 7, 2010 and 356,634 and 14,859 shares, respectively, on June 28, 2010, respectively, all at an exercise price of $3.40 per share. The Series C Warrants have a term of exercise expiring 3 years from the issuance date. The Series C Warrants at the option of the holder, may be exercised by cash payment of the exercise price or, the holder may acquire the underlying shares of common stock through a "cashless exercise".

The Company will not receive any additional proceeds to the extent that the Series C Warrants are exercised by cashless exercise.

The exercise price and number of shares of common stock issuable upon exercise of the Series C Warrants may be adjusted for: 1) upon issuance of additional stock lower than the exercise price; 2) upon subdivision or combination of common stocks; or 3) upon distribution of assets and other dilutive events.

Accounting for Series A, Series B and Series C Warrants

Series A and Series B Warrants issued to certain investors on December 17, 2009 to purchase 500,000 shares of the Company’s common stock remained outstanding at June 30, 2012 had a term of three years and exercise prices of $3.25 and $4.00 per share, respectively. These warrants contain standard anti-dilution provisions for stock dividends, stock splits, stock combination, recapitalization and a change of control transaction. Because these warrants do not contain any contingent exercise provisions and their settlement amount will equal the difference between the fair value of a fixed number of the Company’s equity shares and a fixed strike price, these warrants, which are freestanding instruments, qualify for the scope exception under the guidance provided in ASC 815-40-15-5 through 815-40-15-8, and are considered indexed to the Company’s own stock. Accordingly, Series A and Series B Warrants have been classified as equity.

Since the Series C Warrants issued to the investors and the placement agent in June 2010 contain reset exercise price provisions, the Company had determined to classify these warrants as derivative liabilities. The reset exercise provisions of the warrants issued to the investors and the placement agent in June 2010 were recorded at their relative fair values at issuance of $1,182,860 and will continue to be recorded at fair value at each subsequent balance sheet date. Any change in value between reporting periods will be recorded as other income (expense). These warrants will continue to be reported as a liability until such time when they are exercised or expire. The fair value of these warrants is estimated using Monte-Carlo simulation methods.

In accordance with the PRC Companies Law, the Company’s PRC subsidiaries and VIEs were required to transfer 10% of their profits after tax, as determined in accordance with accounting standards and regulations of the PRC, to the statutory surplus reserve and a percentage of not less than 5%, as determined by management, of the profits after tax to the public welfare fund. However, the Company’s PRC subsidiaries and VIEs were not required to transfer any profit after tax to the statutory surplus reserve after the accumulated statutory surplus reserves reached 50% of registered capital of the Company’s PRC subsidiaries and VIEs. With the amendment of the PRC Companies Law which was effective from January 1, 2006, enterprises in the PRC were no longer required to transfer any profit to the public welfare fund. Any balance of the public welfare fund brought forward from December 31, 2005 should be transferred to the statutory surplus reserve. The statutory surplus reserve is non-distributable.

Each of these options expires three years after their respective vesting dates.

NOTE 15 INCOME TAXES (CONTINUED)

The Company had deferred tax assets as follows:

    June 30,     December 31,  
    2012     2011  
Net operating losses carried forward $  997,409   $  786,873  
Less: Valuation allowance   (997,409 )   (786,873 )
Net deferred tax assets $  -   $  -  

As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, Nutrastar had $2,933,557 and $2,314,333 net operating loss carryforwards available to reduce future taxable income, respectively, which will expire in various years through 2031. Management believes it is more-likely-than-not that the Company will not realize these potential tax benefits as the Company’s U.S. operations will not generate any operating profits in the foreseeable future. Therefore, the Company recorded a full valuation allowance on its deferred tax assets.

As of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011, the Company has no material unrecognized tax benefits which would favorably affect the effective income tax rate in future periods and does not believe that there will be any significant increases or decreases of unrecognized tax benefits within the next twelve months. No interest or penalties relating to income tax matters have been imposed on the Company during the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, and no provision for interest and penalties is deemed necessary as of June 30, 2012 and December 31, 2011.

According to the PRC Tax Administration and Collection Law, the statute of limitations is three years if the underpayment of taxes is due to computational errors made by the taxpayer or its withholding agent. The statute of limitations extends to five years under special circumstances, which are not clearly defined. In the case of a related party transaction, the statute of limitation is ten years. There is no statute of limitation in the case of tax evasion.

The purchase price was determined based on a real property valuation report issued by an independent appraisal firm, Harbin Guoxin Real Estate Appraisal and Consulting Co., Limited on November 11, 2010.

(c) PRC employee costs

According to the prevailing laws and regulations of the PRC, the Company’s subsidiaries and VIEs in the PRC are required to cover its employees with medical, retirement and unemployment insurance programs. Management believes that due to the transient nature of its employees, they do not need to provide all employees with such social insurances, and have not paid the social insurances for all employees.

In the event that any current or former employee files a complaint with the PRC government, the Company's subsidiaries and VIEs may be subject to making up the social insurances as well as administrative fines. As the Company believes that these fines would not be material, no provision has been made in this regard.

We are a leading China based producer and supplier of premium branded consumer products including commercially cultivated Cordyceps Militaris (aka Chinese Golden Grass), organic and specialty food products and functional health beverages.

Our primary product is Cordyceps Militaris, also known as Chinese Golden Grass. Cordyceps Militaris is a species of parasitic fungus that is typically found in Northeastern China. It is a precious ingredient in traditional Chinese medicine, as Cordyceps Militaris is widely believed in China to offer high medical and health benefits by nourishing the yin, boosting the yang, and invigorating the meridians of the lungs and kidneys. According to Georges Halpern's Healing Mushrooms, certain research has shown that Cordyceps Militaris may boost the immune system, and can be used as a supplement for combating certain effects of fatigue and aging, the occurrences of certain tumors, and combating arteriosclerosis and certain gastrointestinal disorders, as well as reducing blood pressure. In addition, Cordyceps Militaris has significantly high economic values and according to Halpern, wild Cordyceps Militaris can cost as much as $10,000 per kilogram. Due to the extremely sensitive growing conditions of Cordyceps Militaris, it is very difficult to grow the plant in a man-made environment. After several years of laboratory tests, we developed a technology to commercially grow and produce Cordyceps Militaris in 2006. Through Daqing Shuaiyi, we generated 74.9% and 79.0% of our revenues from Cordyceps Militaris for the second quarter of 2012 and 2011, respectively. We plan to continue to focus on Cordyceps Militaris related based consumer products, which is our fastest growing product line with the greatest market demand and a significantly higher profit margin.

We also sell organic and specialty food products through our VIE, Harbin Shuaiyi, which was formed in 2001. After years of development, we believe that we have become the largest wholesale distributor of organic and specialty food in Heilongjiang Province, China. We plan to increase our focus in organic and specialty food products business, including efforts to become a producer and increase our distribution capabilities.

We introduced the Cordyceps Militaris based functional health beverages in the fourth quarter of 2010. The non-carbonized beverage products were developed internally and contain the Cordyceps Militaris as a key ingredient. The products are currently being marketed directly to consumers in select cities in Jiangsu and Anhui Province through various distribution channels. We produce and distribute our functional health beverages through Daqing Shuaiyi.

Net Revenue. Net revenue is generated from the sale of our products. Net revenue increased approximately $2.35 million, or 30.6%, to approximately $10.04 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012, from approximately $7.68 million for the same period in 2011. This increase was mainly attributable to the increase in sales volume of our core product, Cordyceps Militaris by $1.44 million and the increase in sales volume of our beverage products by $0.87 million. The increase in sales of our products was driven mainly by the continued increase in market demand for our products.

Business Segment Information

Our business operations can be categorized into three segments based on the type of products we produce and sell, specifically (i) Cordyceps Militaris, (ii) functional health beverages and (iii) organic and specialty food products. The following table illustrates the revenue from each of these three segments as well as the change of percentage for the periods indicated:

We expect that the majority of our revenue for 2012 will be generated from our Cordyceps Militaris related products, with an increase in percentage of revenue coming from the functional health beverages as we are expanding our distribution channel of such products. We also expect to increase our business development activities in the organic and specialty food products on a going forward basis. We anticipate that sales and marketing related costs associated with branding, marketing and advertising of the functional health beverages may increase as a percentage of revenue.

Additional information regarding our products can be found at Note 20, Segment Information in our unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements contained under Part I, Item I “FINANCIAL STATEMENTS” above.

Cost of Goods Sold. Our cost of goods sold is primarily comprised of the costs of our raw materials, labor and overhead. Our cost of goods sold increased by $0.74 million, or 42.4%, to approximately $2.47 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 from approximately $1.74 million during the same period in 2011. This increase was commensurate with the increase in production costs associated with the functional health beverages products and the increase in sales of Cordyceps Militaris. As a percentage of net revenue, the cost of goods sold increased to 24.6% for the three months ended June 30, 2012 from 22.6% during the same period in 2011. Such increase of cost of goods sold as a percentage of net revenue was mainly attributable to the increased production costs associated with the functional health beverages as our functional health beverages generally have a higher production cost than our Cordyceps Militaris products because we outsource the production of the beverages to a third party bottler.

3


Gross Profit. Gross profit is equal to the difference between net revenue and cost of goods sold. Our gross profit increased by approximately $1.62 million, or 27.2%, to approximately $7.56 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 from approximately $5.95 million during the same period in 2011. Gross profit as a percentage of net revenue, or gross margin, was 75.4% for the three months ended June 30, 2012, a decrease of 2.0% from 77.4% during the same period in 2011. Such percentage decrease was mainly due to the increase in the sales of functional health beverages in the product mix which have a lower gross margin as compared to our Cordyceps Militaris products.

Selling Expenses. Our selling expenses include sales commissions, cost of advertising and promotional materials, salaries and fringe benefits of sales personnel, and other sales related costs. Selling expenses increased by approximately $0.01 million, or 0.4%, to approximately $0.47 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 from approximately $0.46 million during the same period in 2011. The increase in selling expenses in terms of dollar for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was mainly attributable to the increase in selling and marketing expenses incurred relating to the expansion of distribution channels of our functional health beverages product line. As a percentage of net revenue, selling expenses decreased to 4.7% for the three months ended June 30, 2012 from 6.0% for the same period in 2011. The percentage decrease was mainly due to the increase in net revenue which outpaced the increase in selling expenses.

General and Administrative Expense. General and administrative expenses include the costs associated with staff and support personnel who manage our business activities, depreciation charge for fixed assets, and professional fees paid to third parties. General and administrative expenses decreased by approximately $0.15 million, or 18.4%, to approximately $0.66 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 from approximately $0.81 million for the same period in 2011. The decrease in terms of dollar was mainly attributable to the decrease in payments for third party professional services. As a percentage of net revenue, general and administrative expenses were 6.6% for the three months ended June 30, 2012 as compared to 10.6% for the same period of 2011. The percentage decrease was mainly due to the increase in net revenue combined with a decrease in general and administrative expenses in terms of dollars.

Income Before Income Tax. Income before income tax increased by approximately $1.43 million, or 27.5%, to approximately $6.63 million during the three months ended June 30, 2012 from approximately $5.20 million during the same period in 2011. As a percentage of net revenue, income before income tax decreased to 66.1% during the three months ended June 30, 2012 from 67.7% during the same period in 2011. The decrease of income before income tax as a percentage of net revenue is mainly attributable to the increase in cost of goods sold and decrease in other income of $0.33 million mainly as a result of the change in the fair value of outstanding warrants.

Income Taxes. Nutrastar International Inc. is subject to United States federal income tax at a tax rate of 34%. No provision for income taxes in the United States has been made as Nutrastar International Inc. had no income taxable in the United States for the three months ended June 30, 2012. New Resources was incorporated in the BVI and under the current laws of the BVI, is not subject to income taxes. Oriental Global was formed in Hong Kong and under the current laws of Hong Kong, is not subject to income taxes. Our PRC subsidiary and the VIEs are subject to national and local income taxes within China at the applicable tax rate on the taxable income as reported in their PRC statutory financial statements in accordance with relevant income tax laws. China passed a new Enterprise Income Tax Law, or the New EIT Law, and its implementing regulations, both of which became effective on January 1, 2008.

Both Daqing Shuaiyi and Harbin Shuaiyi have been subject to an income tax rate of 25% since 2011.

Income tax increased by approximately $0.43 million to approximately $1.73 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 from approximately $1.30 million for the same period in 2011. Income tax expense for the three months ended June 30, 2012 increased because of the increase in net revenue and taxable income.

Net Income. Net income increased by approximately $1.00 million, or 25.6% to approximately $4.90 million for the three months ended June 30, 2012 from approximately $3.90 million for the same period of 2011, as a result of the factors described above.

Net revenue increased approximately $3.42 million, or 25.3%, to approximately $16.90 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012, from approximately $13.48 million for the same period in 2011. This increase was mainly attributable to the increase in sales volume of our core product, Cordyceps Militaris by $1.82 million and the increase in sales volume of our beverage products by $1.49 million. The increase in sales of our products was mainly driven by the continued increase in market demand for our products.

Business Segment Information

Our business operations can be categorized into three segments based on the type of products we produce and sell, specifically (i) Cordyceps Militaris, (ii) functional health beverages and (iii) organic and specialty food products.

Selling expenses decreased by approximately $0.02 million, or 3.0%, to approximately $0.85 million for the six months ended June 30, 2012 from approximately $0.87 million during the same period in 2011. The decrease in selling expenses in terms of dollar for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was mainly attributable to the decrease in selling and marketing expenses incurred relating to advertising and promotion as a result of market acceptance of prior advertising and promotion. As a percentage of net revenue, selling expenses decreased to 5.0% for the six months ended June 30, 2012 from 6.5% for the same period in 2011. The percentage decrease was mainly due to the increase in net revenue which outpaced the increase in selling expenses.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

General

As of June 30, 2012, we had cash and cash equivalents of approximately $64.47 million. The following table provides detailed information about our net cash flow for all financial statement periods presented in this report.

Cash Flow
(All amounts in thousands of U.S. dollars)

  Six Months Ended June 30,
  2012 2011
Net cash provided by operating activities $8,882 $6,001
Net cash provided by (used in) investing activities 1,252 (1,950)
Net cash provided by financing activities 12 93
Foreign currency translation adjustment (232) 914
Net cash flow $9,914 $5,058

Operating Activities

Net cash provided by operating activities was approximately $8.88 million for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012, which is an increase of approximately $2.88 million from approximately $6.00 million net cash provided by operating activities for the same period of 2011. The increase in the cash provided by operating activities was mainly attributable to increase in our sales and net income, combined with $1.19 million operating activities contribution and $0.69 million as a result of change in fair value of outstanding warrants.

Investing Activities

Our primary uses of cash for investing activities are payments for the acquisition of property, plant and equipment.

Net cash provided by investing activities for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 was approximately $1.25 million, an increase of approximately $3.20 million from net cash used in investing activities of approximately $1.95 million for the same period of 2011. The increase of the cash provided by investing activities was mainly due to the return of prior prepayment deposits relating to the expansion of the organic and specialty food business as the company scaled back the initial size of the expansion.

Financing Activities

Net cash provided by financing activities for the six-month period ended June 30, 2012 was approximately $12,000, a decrease of approximately $81,000 from approximately $93,000 net cash provided by financing activities for the same period of 2011. The decrease of the cash provided by financing activities was mainly due to the decrease in the amount of restricted cash released from an escrow account during the six-month period ended June 30, 2011.

We believe that our cash on hand and cash flow from operations will meet our expected capital expenditure and working capital requirements for the next 12 months. We expect that the current expansion plan will require capital expenditures of approximately $4.00 million over the next 12 to 18 months, which will be funded from our cash on hand and cash generated from operations. However, we may in the future require additional cash resources due to changed business conditions, implementation of our strategy to expand our production capacity or other investments or acquisitions we may decide to pursue. If our own financial resources are insufficient to satisfy our capital requirements, we may seek to sell additional equity or debt securities or obtain additional credit facilities. The sale of additional equity securities could result in dilution to our stockholders. The incurrence of indebtedness would result in increased debt service obligations and could require us to agree to operating and financial covenants that would restrict our operations. Financing may not be available in amounts or on terms acceptable to us, if at all. Any failure by us to raise additional funds on terms favorable to us, or at all, could limit our ability to expand our business operations and could harm our overall business prospects.

Effects of Inflation

Inflation and changing prices have not had a material effect on our business and we do not expect that inflation or changing prices will materially affect our business in the foreseeable future. However, our management will closely monitor the price change and continually maintain effective cost control in operations.

Off Balance Sheet Arrangements

We do not have any off balance sheet arrangements that have or are reasonably likely to have a current or future effect on our financial condition, changes in financial condition, revenues or expenses, results of operations, liquidity or capital expenditures or capital resources that is material to an investor in our securities.

Seasonality

The production and sale of our primary product, Cordyceps Militaris, historically have not been subject to material seasonal variations. However since a majority of our sales are in China, the timing of the various Chinese holidays such as Lunar Chinese New Year, May and October holidays may have some impact to our operating results and operating cash flows.

Critical Accounting Policies

Management’s discussion and analysis of its financial condition and results of operations is based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. Our financial statements reflect the selection and application of accounting policies, which require management to make significant estimates and judgments. See Note 2 to our condensed consolidated financial statements, “Summary of Significant Accounting Policies”. Management bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We believe that the following reflect the more critical accounting policies that currently affect our financial condition and results of operations.

Principle of consolidation

The accompanying condensed consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of Nutrastar and its wholly owned subsidiaries, New Resources, Oriental Global and Harbin Baixin, and its VIEs, Heilongjiang Shuaiyi, Daqing Shuaiyi and Harbin Shuaiyi. All significant inter-company balances or transactions have been eliminated on consolidation.

The Company has evaluated the relationship with Heilongjiang Shuaiyi, Daqing Shuaiyi and Harbin Shuaiyi and based on the result of the evaluation, believes that these entities are variable interest entities and that it is the primary beneficiary of these entities. Consequently, the Company has included the results of operations of these variable interest entities in the condensed consolidated financial statements. The Company’s relationships with Heilongjiang Shuaiyi, Daqing Shuaiyi and Harbin Shuaiyi are governed by a series of contractual arrangements. Under PRC laws, Heilongjiang Shuaiyi, Daqing Shuaiyi and Harbin Shuaiyi are independent legal persons and none of them is exposed to liabilities incurred by the other parties.

The accounts of Heilongjiang Shuaiyi, Daqing Shuaiyi and Harbin Shuaiyi are consolidated in the accompanying condensed financial statements pursuant to the Financial Accounting Standards Board Accounting Standard Codification (ASC) Topic 810 and related subtopics related to the consolidation of variable interest entities. The Company does not have any non-controlling interests in net income and accordingly, did not subtract any net income in calculating the net income attributable to the Company. Because of the contractual arrangements, the Company had a pecuniary interest in the VIEs that require consolidation of the Company’s and the VIEs’ financial statements.

Use of estimates

The preparation of these condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires the Company to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of these condensed consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that are believed to be reasonable under the circumstances. Accordingly, actual results may differ from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. Significant estimates for the periods ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 include the useful lives of property and equipment and intangible assets, assumptions used in assessing impairment for long-term assets and the fair values of share-based payments and warrants granted.

Inventories

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost, determined on a weighted average basis, or market. Costs of inventories include purchase and related costs incurred in bringing the products to their present location and condition. Market value is determined by reference to selling prices after the balance sheet date or to management’s estimates based on prevailing market conditions. Management will write down the inventories to market value if it is below cost. Management also regularly evaluates the composition of its inventories to identify slow-moving and obsolete inventories to determine if a valuation allowance is required.

8


Derivative financial instruments

The Company evaluates all its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then revalued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the consolidated statements of income. For stock-based derivative financial instruments, the Company uses Monte-Carlo simulation methods to value the derivative instruments at inception and on subsequent valuation dates.

Revenue recognition

Revenue is recognized when the following four revenue criteria are met: persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, delivery has occurred, the selling price is fixed or determinable, and collectability is reasonably assured.

Sales revenue is recognized net of value added and sales related taxes, sales discounts and returns at the time when the merchandise is delivered to the customer. Based on historical experience, management estimates that sales returns are immaterial and has not recorded an allowance for estimated sales returns.

Share-based payments

The Company accounts for share-based compensation awards to employees in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718, “Compensation – Stock Compensation”, which requires that share-based payment transactions with employees be measured based on the grant-date fair value of the equity instrument issued and recognized as compensation expense over the requisite service period.

The Company accounts for share-based compensation awards to non-employees in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 718 and FASB ASC Subtopic 505-50, “Equity-Based Payments to Non-employees”. Under FASB ASC Topic 718 and FASB ASC Subtopic 505-50, stock compensation granted to non-employees has been determined as the fair value of the consideration received or the fair value of equity instrument issued, whichever is more reliably measured and is recognized as expense as the goods or services are received.

Income taxes

The Company is subject to income taxes in the United States and other foreign jurisdictions where it operates. The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with FASB ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes”. FASB ASC Topic 740 requires an asset and liability approach for financial accounting and reporting for income taxes and allows recognition and measurement of deferred tax assets based upon the likelihood of realization of tax benefits in future years. Under the asset and liability approach, deferred taxes are provided for the net tax effects of temporary differences between the carrying amounts of assets and liabilities for financial reporting purposes and the amounts used for income tax purposes. A valuation allowance is provided for deferred tax assets if it is more likely than not these items will either expire before the Company is able to realize their benefits, or that future deductibility is uncertain.

The Company’s income tax returns are subject to examination by the Internal Revenue Service (“IRS”) and other tax authorities in the locations where it operates. The Company assesses potentially unfavorable outcomes of such examinations based on the criteria of FASB ASC 740-10-25-5 through 740-10-25-7 and 740-10-25-13 (formerly FASB Interpretation No. 48 (“FIN 48”) “Accounting for Uncertainty in Income Taxes”). The interpretation prescribes a more-likely-than-not threshold for financial statement recognition and measurement of a tax position taken (or expected to be taken) in a tax return. This Interpretation also provides guidance on derecognition of income tax assets and liabilities, classification of current and deferred income tax assets and liabilities, accounting for interest and penalties associated with tax positions, accounting for income taxes in interim periods and income tax disclosures.

Foreign currency

The Company uses the United States dollar (“US Dollar” or “US$” or “$”) for financial reporting purposes. The PRC subsidiaries and VIEs within the Company maintain their books and records in their functional currency, Chinese Renminbi (“RMB”), being the lawful currency in the PRC. Assets and liabilities of the PRC subsidiaries and VIEs are translated from RMB into US Dollars using the applicable exchange rates prevailing at the balance sheet date. Items on the statements of income and cash flows are translated at average exchange rates during the reporting period. Equity accounts are translated at historical rates. Adjustments resulting from the translation of the Company’s financial statements are recorded as accumulated other comprehensive income.

The exchange rates used to translate amounts in RMB into US Dollars for the purposes of preparing the consolidated financial statements are based on the rates as published on the website of People’s Bank of China and are as follows:

    June 30, 2012     December 31, 2011  
Balance sheet items, except for equity accounts   US$1=RMB 6.3249     US$1=RMB6.3009  

    Three months ended June 30,  
    2012     2011  
Items in the statements of income and cash flows   US$1=RMB 6.3074     US$1=RMB6.5011  

    Six months ended June 30,  
    2012     2011  
Items in the statements of income and cash flows   US$1=RMB 6.3074     US$1=RMB6.5411  

No representation is made that the RMB amounts could have been, or could be, converted into US Dollars at the above rates. The value of RMB against US dollars and other currencies may fluctuate and is affected by, among other things, changes in China’s political and economic conditions. Any significant revaluation of RMB may materially affect the Company’s financial condition in terms of US Dollar reporting.

Segment reporting

The Company follows FASB ASC Topic 280, “Segment Reporting”, which requires that companies disclose segment data based on how management makes decisions about allocating resources to segments and evaluating their performance.

The Company believes that during the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, it operated in three business segments – growing and sales of Cordyceps Militaris, which is widely used for Chinese medicine, manufacturing and sale of functional health beverages featuring the Cordyceps Militaris as a core ingredient, and sales of organic and specialty products. The manufacturing and sale of Cordyceps Militaris functional health beverages was launched in the fourth quarter of 2010.

Throughout the six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, all of the Company’s operations were carried out in one geographical segment - China.

ITEM 3. QUANTITATIVE AND QUALITATIVE DISCLOSURE ABOUT MARKET RISK.

Not applicable.

ITEM 4. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures.

Our management, with the participation of our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, Ms. Lianyun Han and Mr. Robert Tick, respectively, evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures. 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, such as this report, 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 management, including its principal executive and principal financial officers, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving their objectives and management necessarily applies its judgment in evaluating the cost-benefit relationship of possible controls and procedures. Based on that evaluation, Ms. Lianyun Han and Mr. Robert Tick concluded that as of June 30, 2012, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.

Changes in Internal Control Over Financial Reporting.

During the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2012, there were no changes in our internal control over financial reporting that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II
OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS.

From time to time, we may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings which arise in the ordinary course of business. We are currently not aware of any legal proceedings or claims that would require disclosure under Item 103 of Regulation S-K. However, litigation is subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in these or other matters may arise from time to time that may harm our business.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

Our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 contains a detailed discussion of risk factors that could materially adversely affect our business, our operating results, or our financial condition. The following risk factor should be read in conjunction with that discussion. Except for the addition of this risk factor, there are no material changes from the risk factors previously disclosed in Item 1A “Risk Factors” of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2011.

Our auditor, based in Hong Kong, China, like other independent registered public accounting firms operating in China and to the extent their audit clients have operations in China, is not permitted to be subject to inspection by the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board and, as such, you may be deprived of the benefits of such inspection.

Our independent registered public accounting firm that issues the audit reports included in our annual reports filed with the SEC, as auditors of companies that are traded publicly in the United States and a firm registered with the US Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States) (the “PCAOB”), is required by the laws of the United States to undergo regular inspections by the PCAOB to assess its compliance with the laws of the United States and professional standards.

Because our operations are solely located in the Peoples’ Republic of China, a jurisdiction where PCAOB is currently unable to conduct inspections without the approval of the PRC authorities, our auditor, based in Hong Kong, China, like other independent registered public accounting firms operating in China and to the extent their audit clients have operations in China, is currently not inspected by the PCAOB.

Inspections of other firms that the PCAOB has conducted outside China have identified deficiencies in those firms’ audit procedures and quality control procedures, which may be addressed as part of the inspection process to improve future audit quality. The inability of the PCAOB to conduct full inspections of auditors operating in China makes it more difficult to evaluate our auditor’s audit procedures or quality control procedures. As a result, investors may be deprived of the benefits of PCAOB inspections.

ITEM 2. UNREGISTERED SALES OF EQUITY SECURITIES AND USE OF PROCEEDS.

We have not sold any unregistered equity securities during the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2012 that were not previously disclosed in a current report on Form 8-K that was filed during that period.

Purchases of Equity Securities By the Company

On August 24, 2011, our Board of Directors authorized a repurchase of up to $5 million of our common stock over twelve (12) months pursuant to a stock repurchase program (the “Repurchase Program”). Under the terms of the Repurchase Program, we may repurchase shares through open market, negotiated private or block transactions. The Repurchase Program does not obligate us to repurchase any dollar amount or number of shares of its common stock, and the program may be extended, modified, suspended or discontinued at any time.

The following table provides information relating to the Company’s repurchases of common stock pursuant to the Repurchase Program during the three-month period ended June 30, 2012:
