Fiscal Year 2020 Financial Results
Revenue for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 decreased by $7.54 million, or 24.1%, to $23.68 million from $31.22 million for the same period in 2019, mainly due to the decrease in sales across all products.
|For the Fiscal Years Ended June 30|
|($ millions)||Revenue||COGS||Gross Margin||Revenue||COGS||Gross Margin|
|Chinese medicinal herbal products||13.27||10.04||24.3||%||13.71||10.34||24.6||%|
|Other agricultural products||10.25||7.28||29.0||%||16.85||11.61||31.1||%|
Revenue from Luobuma products decreased by $0.49 million, or 74.6%, to $0.17 million for the year ended June 30, 2020 from $0.66 million for the same period in 2019, mainly due to the decrease in revenue from Tenet-Jove and Tenet Huatai. Since the beginning of the year, we did not launch new products, and we mainly focused on clearing off our old stocks. In addition, our sales of Luobuma products were affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, as a result, sales decreased during the year ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019.
Revenue from Chinese medicinal herbal products decreased slightly by $0.44 million, or 3.2%, to $13.27 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 from $13.71 million for the same period last year. The sales of Chinese medicinal herbal products were comparatively stable during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019. The decrease was mainly due to the depreciation of RMB against US$. The average translation rate for the years ended June 30, 2020 and 2019 were at 1 RMB to 0.1422 USD and at 1 RMB to 0.1466 USD, respectively, which represented a decrease of 2.97%.
Revenue from other agricultural products decreased by $6.60 million, or 39.2%, to $10.25 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 from $16.85 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease was mainly due to the decline of sales volume of yew trees during the second half of fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 as compared to the same period in 2019. Our sales of yew trees were affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, which resulted in less orders from our customers during the year ended June 30, 2020.
Gross profit and Gross Margin
Total cost of revenue decreased by $4.68 million, or 21.05%, to $17.56 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 from $22.25 million for the same period in 2019. Gross profit decreased by $2.85 million, or 31.8%, to $6.12 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 from $8.97 million for the same period in 2019. Overall gross margin decreased by 2.9 percentage points to 25.8% for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, compared to 28.7% for the same period in 2019.
Gross margins for Luobuma products, Chinese medicinal herbal products, and other agricultural products were negative 46.0%, and 24.3% and 29.0%, respectively, for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020. This compared to gross margins for Luobuma products, Chinese medicinal herbal products, and other agricultural products of 54.0%, 24.6%, and 31.1%, respectively, for the same period in 2019.
General and administrative expenses increased by $1.07 million, or 13.1%, to $9.22 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 from $8.15 million for the same period in 2019. The increase in general and administrative expenses was mainly due to an increase in bad debt expense of US$ 338,537, an increase in staff salary expenses due to the issuance of restricted shares to the management as compensation of US$ 1,022,660, as well as an increased general and administrative expenses of US$ 315,453 for our newly established entity TNB. The increase was partially offset by the decreased offering cost write-off of US$ 434,000. The US$ 434,000 was the valuation of the Commitment Shares retained by IFG Fund upon termination of the Purchase Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement during the year ended June 30, 2019.
Selling expenses decreased by $0.32 million, or 45.1%, to $0.39 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 from $0.70 million for the same period in 2019. The decrease was primarily due to the decrease in advertising expense, commission expenses as well as shipping expenses of Tenet-Jove which was in line with the decrease in our sales during the year ended June 30, 2020. The decrease was also due to the decrease in salary related expenses as a result of reduced number of staff during the year ended June 30, 2020.
Operating loss was $3.49 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, compared to operating income of $0.12 million for the same period in 2019.
Net income (loss)
Net loss was $6.51 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, compared to net income of $0.88 million for the same period in 2019. After the deduction of non-controlling interests, net loss attributable to common shareholders for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020 was $6.63 million, or $2.25 per basic and diluted share. This compare to net income attributable to common shareholders of $0.80 million, $0.32 per basic and diluted share, for the same period in 2019.
As of June 30, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $32.37 million, compared to $35.33 million as of June 30, 2019. Net cash used in operating activities was $4.66 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, compared to net cash provided by operation activities of $3.50 million for the same period in 2019. Net cash provided by investing activities was $0.10 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, compared to net cash used in investing activities of $0.25 million for the same period in 2019. Net cash provided by financing activities was $2.63 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020, compared to $1.81 million for the same period in 2019.
