First Half of Fiscal Year 2022 Unaudited Financial Results
Total net revenues were approximately US$0.2 million, representing a decrease of 81.8% from approximately US$1.4 million in the same period of fiscal year 2021. The decrease was mainly due to the decrease of interest income from our micro-lending business.
Revenue from online marketplace services was approximately US$0.1 million, compared with US$0.3 million in the same period of last fiscal year. Such revenues were generated from our social e-commerce platform, serving the domestic Chinese market. The decrease was mainly due to the decrease in active mobile buyers as a result of the increasing competition in social e-ecommerce industry.
Interest income was approximately US$0.2 million, representing a decrease of 82.3% from US$1.1 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The decrease of interest income was mainly due to the decrease of the outstanding balance of loans from the microlending business. The Company has ceased to issue new loans since May 2019 and exited the microlending business in October 2019.
Operating costs and expenses were approximately US$8.7 million, representing a decrease of 51.6% from approximately US$17.9 million in the same period of fiscal year 2021. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in provision for uncollectable loans receivable.
Service and development expenses were approximately US$0.2 million, representing a decrease of 19.3% from approximately US$0.3 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in payroll expenses.
Sales and marketing expenses were approximately US$0.2 million, representing a decrease of 72.0% from approximately US$0.6 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in payroll expenses and professional service fees.
General and administrative expenses were approximately US$2.3 million, representing a decrease of 24.6% from approximately US$3.0 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in professional service fees, rent and administrative payroll expenses.
Provision for uncollectable loans receivable was approximately US$5.0 million, compared with approximately US$12.9 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The Company has provided an additional allowance for uncollectable loans for its micro-lending business based on recent collection history and in light of the continuing impact from COVID-19.
Finance costs were approximately US$0.6 million, representing a decrease of 48.2% from approximately US$1.2 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The decrease was mainly due to the repayment of the principal amount of the Majik Fund SPC loan of $10 million.
Share-based compensation was approximately US$0.4 million, representing an increase of 606% from approximately US$0.1 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The increase was primarily due to the amortization of restricted stock.
Total other expenses were approximately US$0.4 million, compared with approximately US$0.8 million in the same period of fiscal year 2021. The changes mainly resulted from foreign transaction losses.
Loss from continuing operations was approximately US$8.9 million, compared with approximately US$17.5 million from the same period of fiscal year 2021.
Loss from discontinued operation was nil, compared with approximately US$6.1 million from the same period of fiscal year 2021.
Net loss was approximately US$8.9 million for the six months ended September 30, 2021, compared to net loss of US$23.6 million for the six months ended September 30, 2020.
Basic and diluted net loss per share attributable to ordinary shareholders was US$0.18, compared with US$0.48 in the same period of fiscal year 2021.
Cash and Cash Flow
As of September 30, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately US$15.4 million. Net cash provided by continuing operating activities was US$0.8 million for the six months ended September 30, 2021, compared to net cash provided by continuing operating activities of US$14.7 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The decrease in continuing operating activities cash flow was mainly due to the decrease of outstanding balance of other receivable. Net cash used in investing activities was US$10.1 million for the six months ended September 30, 2021, compared to US$0.2 million in the same period of last fiscal year. The increase was mainly due to the advance payment for equipment for our newly launched Radiation Oncology Therapy Services business. Net cash provided by financing activities was US$9.3 million for the six months ended September 30, 2021, compared to nil for same period of last fiscal year. The increase was mainly due to a total of US$10.0 million received from our private placement completed in September 2021 and a total of US$2.0 million of loans from our controlling shareholder offset by repayments of US$2.7 million to our related parties.
Exchange Rate Information
Our business is conducted in China, and our financial records are maintained in RMB, our functional currency. However, we used the U.S. dollar as our reporting currency; therefore, periodic reports made to shareholders will include current period amounts translated into U.S. dollars using the then-current exchange rates, for the convenience of the readers. The financial information was prepared in RMB and then translated into U.S. dollars at period-end exchange rates in the H.10 statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board as to assets and liabilities, and average exchange rates as to revenue and expenses. Capital accounts were translated at their historical exchange rates when the capital transactions occurred. The effects of foreign currency translation adjustments were included as a component of accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) in shareholders' equity. We make no representation that any RMB or US. dollar amounts could have been, or could be, converted into U.S. dollars or RMB, as the case may be, at any particular rate, or at all. The PRC government imposes control over its foreign currency reserves in part through direct regulation of the conversion of RMB into foreign exchange and through restrictions on foreign trade.
On August 9, 2021, we entered into a certain securities purchase agreement (the "SPA") with certain "non-U.S. Persons" pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell an aggregate of 6,340,000 units, each unit consisting of three ordinary shares of the Company, par value $0.0001 per share ("Share") and a warrant to purchase three Shares with an initial exercise price of US$3.00, at a price of US$1.58 per Unit, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately US$10.02 million (the "Offering"). On September 17, 2021, the transaction contemplated by the SPA was consummated when all the closing conditions of the SPA were satisfied. The net proceeds of approximately US$10.0 million from such Offering will be used by the Company for working capital and general corporate purposes.
On September 24, 2021, the Board of Directors approved our new business plan to enter the radiation oncology services market in the U.S. We have also established We Health Limited, a subsidiary based in New York, to tap into the cancer therapy and radiation oncology business in the U.S. On September 26, 2021, we signed a product purchase agreement with a third-party supplier to purchase equipment for the new cancer therapy and radiation oncology business. The total price of the equipment is approximately US$12.7 million. Considering the effect of COVID-19 and global chip shortage, all the equipment is expected to be received at the latest by March 31, 2022. At present, we have prepaid 80% of the purchase price, and the balance will be paid after the equipment is received and installed.
On October 22, 2021, we announced the appointment of Dr. Yingxian Liu as the medical consultant to the Company. Dr. Liu will work closely with management to develop the Company's cancer therapy and radiation oncology business that will be operated by the Company's wholly-owned subsidiary, We Health Limited.
