ITEM 1.  BUSINESS

Business Development 

Overview
 
We were incorporated in Nevada on March 27, 2001 under the name Jasmine's Garden. Currently, we operate our business through our wholly-owned subsidiaries, Billion Electronic Co., Ltd., a company organized under the laws of the British Virgin Islands on July 27, 2004 (“Billion”), Shenzhen E'Jenie Technology Development Co., Ltd, a company incorporated under the laws of the Peoples Republic of China (“PRC”) on July 8, 2002 (“E’Jenie”), Shenzhen NewPower Technology Co., Ltd., a company organized under the laws of the PRC in 2004, Anytone International (H.K.) Co., Ltd. (“Anytone International”), a company organized under the laws of Hong Kong in 2009, Shenzhen Anytone Technology Co., Ltd. (“Shenzhen Anytone”), a company incorporated under the laws of the PRC in 2005, and Shenzhen Kim Fai Solar Energy Technology Co., Ltd. ("Kim Fai"), a company organized under the laws of the PRC in 2005.

During the early stage of our business, we began to manufacture and distribute lithium battery shells and related products primarily in China. Based on customer specifications we develop, customize and produce steel, aluminum battery shells and aluminum caps. Currently, we produce fourteen steel battery shell lines, nine aluminum battery shell lines, three aluminum battery cap lines and three steel battery cap lines. We maintain long-term relationships with large lithium battery manufacturers. We believe we will continually receive orders from our loyal customers because of our reputation and quality of the products. Our professional marketing team maintains relationships with our current customers and at the same time searches for other potential new customers. We seek to maintain and strengthen our position as a provider of battery shells and caps while increasing the breadth of our product line and improving the quality of our products.

Through a series of recent acquisitions, we completed our production chain to become a vertical integration company and extend our products offering. Currently, we can not only produce and sell lithium ion battery components such as battery shells, caps and cells, but we can also produce finished lithium ion battery packs and its application products such as mobile backup power systems under our own brand name. These vertical integrations have transformed the Company from a company that just focuses on the OEM customers to a company that focuses more on end-user of consumer electronic products’ customers.
 
The lithium battery was created in the 1990s, with its first mass production in 1993 in Japan. Lithium batteries were first used in notebook computers and now are used in cellular phones, video machines, laptops, digital cameras, MP3 players, global positioning satellite systems, 3G communication devices, hybrid cars and other electronic products. Batteries are becoming smaller, lighter, more efficient, longer lasting and free of pollution. The lithium battery energy/weight ratio exceeds its counterparts and with an excellent safety standard we believe that it is the future of the battery industry. China has become one of the largest producers and consumers of lithium ion batteries. According to the China Chemistry and Physics Electronic Industry Association, there were over $4.0 billion of lithium ion batteries sold in China in 2005. We anticipate that there will be even greater demand for lithium batteries in China and worldwide in the next few years. We believe the current trend towards smaller, lighter portable consumer products will continue and because of its size, the demand for lithium batteries will keep on increasing.

On November 15, 2004, we acquired Billion and its wholly-owned operating subsidiary, Shenzhen E'Jenie Technology Development Co., Ltd, a company incorporated under the laws of the Peoples Republic of China on July 8, 2002 (“E’Jenie”). Through E'Jenie, we manufacture and distribute lithium battery shells and related products primarily in China. Based upon specifications from its customers E'Jenie develops, customizes and produces steel, aluminum battery shells and aluminum caps. Currently, E'Jenie produces fourteen steel battery shell lines, nine aluminum battery shell lines, three aluminum battery cap lines and three steel battery cap lines.

On June 28, 2006, we acquired Galaxy View and its wholly-owned operating subsidiary Sono Digital Electronic Technologies Co., Ltd., a company incorporated under the laws of the Peoples Republic of China on May 29, 2001 (“Sono”). As described below in our Corporate History, Galaxy View entered into an Agreement on Transfer of Shares with Lui Changqing and Wang Feng. As a result of this agreement, Galaxy View and Sono were spun-off from the Company and is no longer a subsidiary of the Company.

In August, 2008, we entered into a related business field, battery assembly and finished battery distribution, to diversify our line of products. We purchase batteries from suppliers, package and sell these batteries under E’Jenie’s brand name to other mobile device OEM manufacturers. These are all lithium ion batteries and have various models for different kinds of portable electronic devices.

On December 7, 2009 we acquired Anytone International (H.K.) Co., Ltd. (“Anytone International”) and its wholly owned operating subsidiary Shenzhen Anytone Technology Co., Ltd. (“Shenzhen Anytone”), a company incorporated under the laws of the Peoples Republic of China in 2005.  Shenzhen Anytone is the Chinese operating subsidiary of Anytone International, collectively referred to as “Anytone”. Anytone engages in research, manufacture and sell of mobile backup power systems for mobile phones, laptops, solar, MP4, PMPs, PDAs, DC and digital applications.

On January 12, 2010, we closed the transactions contemplated by the share exchange agreement dated December 11, 2009 with Shenzhen NewPower Technology Co., Ltd. (“NewPower”).  Pursuant to the share exchange agreement, the Company’s subsidiary E’jenie acquired NewPower. The Company issued the shareholders of NewPower, proportionally among the NewPower Shareholders in accordance with their respective ownership interests in NewPower immediately before the closing of the share exchange, 1,823,346 shares of the Company’s common stock with a restrictive legend, and $3,000,000. NewPower is engaged in manufacturing and distribution of lithium batteries.

On November 10, 2010, the Company’s subsidiary, Shenzhen Anytone, executed a share exchange agreement to acquire all the equity interest of Shenzhen Kim Fai Solar Energy Technology Co., Ltd., a Chinese company engaged in the technology development and sale of solar application products and solar energy batteries ("Kim Fai"), with all of the shareholders of Kim Fai . 

Corporate History

Until December 2, 2003, we operated a nationwide wholesale and retail business selling greeting cards, note cards and gift tags made from a design process involving photography and computer graphics. On December 2, 2003, Cheering Limited, an investment holding company organized under the laws of the British Virgin Islands ("Cheering"), acquired 5,700,000 shares of our common stock, par value $0.001, which constituted approximately 95% of the then issued and outstanding shares of our common stock from Jack and Jasmine Gregory, our former officers and directors, for cash consideration of $221,221 (the "Cheering Transaction").

On March 17, 2004, we sold 30,000,000 shares of common stock at a per share purchase price of $0.05 to seven unaffiliated individuals in a private placement, which yielded aggregate gross proceeds of $1,500,000 (the "Private Placement"). As a condition to the closing of the Private Placement, each of the investors executed an irrevocable proxy granting Mr. Sun, our former President and Chief Executive Officer, the right to vote all shares of the common stock purchased in the Private Placement. The irrevocable proxies expired on May 1, 2004, however, the investors and Mr. Sun extended the irrevocable proxies to May 2006. Mr. Sun as the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Cheering is the beneficial owner of the 5,700,000 shares of common stock, which represents approximately 7.8%, of the issued and outstanding shares of our common stock and prior to the expiration of the irrevocable proxies, Mr. Sun will have the power to vote or direct the voting of 30,000,000 shares issued in the Private Placement. As a result, until the irrevocable proxies expire on May 1, 2006, Mr. Sun will control approximately 48.9% of our issued and outstanding common stock.

On April 28, 2004, we filed a certificate of amendment to our articles of incorporation with the Nevada Secretary of State to increase our authorized common stock to 140,000,000 shares and to authorize 60,000,0000 shares, par value $0.001, of blank check preferred stock.
 
On September 3, 2004, we filed a certificate of amendment to our articles of incorporation with the Nevada Secretary of State to change our name from "Jasmine's Garden" to "China Digital Communication Group."

In connection with the acquisition of Galaxy View, the Company issued Series A Preferred Stock to the selling shareholders.  On June 29, 2006, the Company filed with the Secretary of State of Nevada a Certificate of Designation of Series A Convertible Preferred Stock designating 7,575,757 of the Company’s previously authorized preferred stock. Each share of Series A Preferred Stock entitles the holder to seven votes per share on all matters to be voted on by the shareholders of the Company and is mandatorily convertible into one tenth of one share of the Company’s common stock on June 29, 2011 (after providing for the July 13, 2009, 10-to-1 reverse stock split of the Company’s common stock). Each share of Series A Preferred Stock shall, with respect to rights on liquidation, dissolution or winding up, ranks (i) on a parity with the Company’s common stock, and (ii) junior to any other class of the Company’s preferred stock.  Series A Preferred Stock is not entitled to any preferred dividend. However, the preferred shareholders will share the dividend on common stock proportionately if and when the dividend on Common Stock is declared.

On July 13, 2009, we effected a 10-to-1 reverse split of our common stock.

Effective November 18, 2009 we changed our name from China Digital Communication Group to New Energy Systems Group.

On October 20, 2010, the Company filed an Amendment to its Certification of Designations, Preferences and Rights for its Series A Convertible Preferred Stock. As a result of the Amendment, which was approved by Company's board of directors and a majority of the Series A holders, the Series A is convertible at the option of the holder until June 29, 2011, when every ten (10) issued and outstanding shares of Series A shall be automatically convertible into one (1) share of common stock (on a post-split basis). Additionally, the Series A shall continue to be subject to a lock-up provision through June 29, 2011, provided, however, that the common stock issuable upon the optional conversion of the Series A shall not be subject to such lock-up limitations.

Acquisition of Billion

On November 15, 2004, pursuant to a Share Exchange Agreement (the "Billion Exchange Agreement") dated as of September 17, 2004, by and among the Company, Billion, the shareholders of Billion (the "Billion Shareholders") and E'Jenie, we acquired from the Billion Shareholders (the "Billion Acquisition") all of the issued and outstanding equity interests of Billion (the "Billion Shares"). Billion is a holding company and the sole shareholder of E'Jenie. Billion has no other assets other than the shares of E'Jenie. As consideration for the Billion Shares, we paid to the Billion Shareholders an aggregate of $1,500,000 in cash and issued to them 4,566,210 shares of our common stock. The consideration for the Billion Acquisition was determined through arms length negotiations between us and Billion. As a result of the Billion Acquisition we are the sole shareholder of Billion through which we own all of the issued and outstanding equity interests of E'Jenie.

In connection with the Billion Acquisition we entered into a Guarantee Agreement, dated October 9, 2004, as amended October 11, 2004 (the "Guarantee"), with Shiji Ruichen Guaranty and Investment Co. Ltd., a company incorporated under the laws of the Peoples Republic of China ("Shiji"). Pursuant to the terms of the Guarantee, Shiji agreed to guarantee our performance and the performance of the Billion Shareholders under the Billion Exchange Agreement. As consideration for Shiji's guaranty, we issued to Shiji 1,919,016 shares of our common stock. As security for our obligations under the Guarantee, one of our principal shareholders deposited 5,000,000 of their shares of our common stock into escrow.
 
Acquisition of Galaxy View
 
On June 29, 2006, pursuant to the terms of a Share Exchange Agreement (the "Galaxy View Exchange Agreement") dated as of March 22, 2006, by and among the Company, Galaxy View, the shareholders of Galaxy View (the " Galaxy View Shareholders") and Sono, we acquired from the Galaxy View Shareholders (the "Galaxy View Acquisition") all of the issued and outstanding equity interests of Galaxy View (the "Galaxy View Shares"). As consideration for the Galaxy View Shares, we paid to the Galaxy View Shareholders an aggregate of $3,000,000 in cash and issued to them 7,575,757 shares of our preferred stock. On a post split basis, the consideration for the Acquisition was determined through arms length negotiations between us and Galaxy View.

During the first quarter of 2007, Sono lost two of their largest customers and users of their products. The fact that the telecom industry in China was a monopoly, there was no longer a market for our products.

On April 24, 2007, the Company entered into an Agreement on Transfer of Shares of Galaxy View with Liu Changqing and Wang Feng (collectively, the "Purchasers”) for the sale of our wholly-owned subsidiary Galaxy View (the “Agreement”). Changqing purchased a 60% interest and Feng will purchase a 40% interest in Galaxy View. In exchange for all of the outstanding shares of Galaxy View, the Purchasers agreed to pay $3,000,000 USD as consideration for the acquisition. We entered into promissory notes with the Purchasers for payment of their share of the $3,000,000 which is due within 90 days of April 24, 2007. If payment is not made within 90 days, the promissory notes will accrue interest at 18% per annum from the closing date. As of December 31, 2007, the amount has been paid in full.

Acquisition of Anytone

On December 7, 2009, we closed the transactions contemplated by the share exchange agreement (the “Share Exchange Agreement”) dated November 19, 2009 with Anytone International and Anytone.  Pursuant to the Share Exchange Agreement, we acquired Anytone International and thereby indirectly acquired Anytone International’s Chinese operating subsidiary Anytone.  Pursuant to the Share Exchange Agreement, we issued to the shareholders of Anytone International, proportionally among the Anytone International Shareholders in accordance with their respective ownership interests in Anytone International immediately before the closing of the Share Exchange, an aggregate of 3,593,939 shares of our Common Stock with standard restrictive legend, and cash consideration of US $10,000,000. As of December 31, 2009, $5,000,000 has been paid. The Company has paid out the remaining $5,000,000 before June 30, 2010.

Our Business

LITHIUM BATTERIES

Industry

The lithium battery was created in the 1990s, with its first mass production in 1993 in Japan. Lithium batteries were first used in notebook computers and now are used in cellular phones, video machines, laptops, digital cameras, MP3 players, global positioning satellite systems, 3G communication devices, hybrid cars and an array of other electronic products.

Batteries are becoming smaller, lighter, more efficient, longer lasting and free of pollution. The lithium battery's energy/weight ratio exceeds that of its counterparts and with an excellent safety standard we believe that it is the future of the battery industry. China has become one of the largest producers and consumers of lithium ion batteries. According to BBC Research, the lithium ion battery market was around $6.8 billion in 2010. We anticipate that there will be even greater demand for lithium batteries in China and worldwide in the next few years. We believe that the current trend towards smaller, lighter portable consumer products will continue to grow and because of its size, the demand for the lithium battery will increase. By way of example, a mobile-phone battery has a typical usage life of 300 to 500 recharges, which translates to a ratio of 1.8 batteries in service life of each phone, according to official Chinese statistics. However, our internal data reveals that battery replacement demand is faster than this when consumers turn in their phones for new models before the normal life of the battery is over. A short product life, combined with a short product innovation cycle, result in rapid product turnover – and plenty of business for battery suppliers.
 
Currently, China has more than 600 million mobile phone subscribers, making it the country with the largest mobile market in the world. The mobile phone market in China is expected to maintain its growth and current estimates project that handset shipments will grow to 278.2 million units in 2011.
 
China's mobile phone market is likely to grow 7.7% in 2009 despite the downward trend in the global market, with mobile handset shipments rising to 239.1 million units, according to a recent report by market research firm iSuppli. Partly boosted by the Chinese government's initiative to provide subsidies to rural residents for home electronics purchases, the world's largest mobile phone market is expected to see its new subscribers exceed 90 million by the end of 2009, and Chinese mobile phone makers are expected to ship over 360 million units to both domestic and overseas markets, representing a year-over-year increase of 20%.

Principal Products

E’Jenie

Our wholly-owned subsidiary, E'Jenie, is an assembler and distributor of finished lithium ion batteries and a producer of the following lithium ion battery shells and caps.

Low-Carbon Steel Stretch Series. This square shape shell series stretches the low-carbon steel plate section by section. We use superficial galvanization to custom make sizes for different customers. The characteristics of this series are that it is clean and artistic; it has smooth cuttings, and is explosion proof, wear resistant and anti-corrosive. This series is suitable for square shaped nickel hydrogen batteries, lithium ion batteries and power batteries.

F6, F8 Nickel Hydrogen and Lithium Ion Duel Functions Series. This series stretches the low-carbon steel plate section by section and uses oil pressure to make the final form. The characteristic of this series is a smooth surface. This series is suitable for nickel Hydrogen and Lithium Ion Duel Functions Rechargeable Battery Cells.

Square Share Stainless Steel Series. This series uses a unique processing craft to stretch stainless steel to make the square steel. The characteristics of this series are that it is anticorrosive and it does not rust. This series is suitable for the square shaped Nickel Hydrogen and Lithium Ion Battery and related components.

Aluminum Square Shell Series. This series is developed by us by continuously extruding to form the final shell shapes. The characteristic of this series is that it is explosion proof.

Japanese Explosion-Proof Cap Series. Included in this series is the Japanese Steel Plate Patent Product Series and the Stainless Steel Explosion-Proof Cap Series. The characteristics of the Japanese Steel Plate Patent Series are as follows:

 
·
Low Pressure. It can be used under low pressure condition. The pressure is affected by the thickness of the aluminum sheet and the diameter of holes within the caps.

 
·
Strong Resistance. The aluminum material will not become stiff or rigid and therefore the product will not crack if it is hit.
  
 
·
Expanding the Gas Releasing Volume. When the safety value is on the gas will be released.

The Stainless Steel Explosion-Proof Cap Series was developed by us and for which we own a patent. This series is suitable for lithium ion batteries used in mobile phones, calculators, MP3 players, digital camera, recorders and other electronic devices.

During the second half of the 2008 fiscal year, E’Jenie started to manufacture and distribute finished battery packs. These products were primarily sold to most of leading cell phone manufactures in China.

Beginning in 2011, through a business switch with NewPower, NewPower took over E’Jenie’s finished battery pack business and transferred its battery cell business to E’Jenie. This transition will complete the transformation of E’Jenie as a complete battery component manufacturer which produces battery shells, caps, and cells. We anticipate that the original customers of NewPower for battery cells will become E’Jenie’s customers.

Distribution Methods of the Products and Services

E’Jenie has maintained long-term relationships with its principal customers which are large lithium battery manufacturers. We believe that we continually receive orders from our loyal customers because of E’Jenie’s reputation and quality of the products. Our professional marketing team maintains relationships with our current customers and at the same time searches for other potential new customers.

Anytone produces a small amount of products for testing purposes. Its major production occurs by outsourcing to third parties’ facilities. Anytone’s advantages are in R&D and marketing. In addition, its products are focused on the end-users customers. Therefore, Anytone believes that through outsourcing its production, it can more focus on R&D and marketing to meet the end-user customers’ needs.

NewPower

NewPower is engaged in manufacturing battery cells. Like E’Jenie’s battery shell and caps, NewPower’s battery cells are also parts of finished battery packs’ components. NewPower produces approximately 45 million battery cells annually. Its products are primarily sold to the finished battery pack manufacturers in China such as E’Jenie.

Beginning in 2011, through a business switch with NewPower, NewPower took over E’Jenie’s finished battery pack business and transferred its battery cell business to E’Jenie. This transition will complete the transformation of E’Jenie as a complete battery component manufacturer which produces battery shells, caps, and cells. We anticipate that the original customers of NewPower for battery cells will become E’Jenie’s customers.

Kim Fai
Kim Fai primarily produces solar panels and other solar-related products such as solar lights, solar street lights, solar traffic lights, solar landscape lights, solar power system equipment and other solar related application products.

Kim Fai's major customers are solar construction and installation companies who need solar panels and other solar related application products to be used in construction.

Competition

The worldwide market for lithium batteries is highly competitive. We face competition from manufacturers not only within China but also from other part's of the world, particularly Japan, Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Korea. We compete with these companies by striving to provide a higher quality product at a lower cost. For battery shells and caps, E’Jenie’s primary competitors were Shenzhen Luhua Co., Ltd. and Shenzhen TongLi Electronic Co. For mobile power backup systems, Anytone’s primary competitor is Qunzan Technology (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. For battery cells, NewPower’s primary competitors are Shenzhen Desay Battery Technology Co., Ltd. and Scud Electronic (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. For solar products, Kim Fai's primary competitors are Sunworth Solar Energy Co., Ltd. and Shenzhen Suoyang New Energy Co., Ltd. We believe that by doing business in China we enjoy competitive advantages over similar companies based elsewhere, such as abundant labor resources and low cost raw materials.

Manufacturing and Raw Materials

We purchase various battery components and raw materials for use in our manufacturing processes. The principal raw materials we purchase for E’Jenie are aluminum and steel. These raw materials are used for our battery shell and cover segment. The largest supplier for this segment is Shenzhen Yibao Tech. Co., Ltd. which accounted for 34%  and 9% and of our total purchases in 2010 and 2009, respectively. The price of steel has increased significantly in the past year, and we believe that it will continue to increase. The increases have had an adverse impact on gross margins, since some of the increases cannot be passed on to our customers.
 
Since we launched our battery assembly and finished battery distribution business in August 2008, we have also purchased battery components such as battery cells, packaging labels and other components from a number of suppliers. In 2010, our three major suppliers are Shenzhen NewPower Technology Co., Ltd., Shenzhen Handian Battery Materials Co., Ltd. and Shenzhen Huayi Aluminum Products Co., Ltd., which accounted for 10%, 6% and 3% of our total purchases, respectively. As a result of our acquisition of NewPower, NewPower became one of our principal suppliers. The sales from NewPower to E’Jenie and Anytone was eliminated in the Company’s consolidated financial statements. In 2009, our three major suppliers who have provided us batteries are are Shenzhen Da Ke Battery Co., Ltd., Shenzhen Tian Lu Battery Co., Ltd., and Shenzhen Di Kai Te Battery Electronic Tech. Co., Ltd., which accounted  for  24%, 23%, and 19% of our total purchases, respectively.

Anytone’s major products are portable mobile power devices of various models, each of which need different components. These components include, but are not limited to, solar panels, solar batteries, PCB, Polymer batteries, lithium ion batteries, LCD, and LED emitters. Since Anytone was acquired by the Company in December of 2009, two of Anytone’s largest suppliers, Shenzhen Guanghaoyu Electronics Co., Ltd., which supplies solar panels and solar batteries, and Shenzhen BAK Battery Co., Ltd. which is Anytone’s largest supplier for PCB, Lithium battery, Polymer batteries, accounted for 10% and 9% of the Company’s total purchases in 2010, respectively.

NewPower’s major products are battery cells and batteries which need different components, including lithium cobalt oxide, lithium manganese oxide, electrolyte, copper, battery shells, battery caps and other components. Since NewPower was acquired by the Company in January of 2010, two of NewPower’s largest suppliers, Shenzhen Beiterui New Energy Material Co., Ltd. which supplies lithium cobalt oxide and lithium manganese oxide, and Shenzhen Xinchuangkai Technology Co., Ltd. which supplies electrolyte, accounted for 10% and 6% of the Company’s total purchases in 2010, respectively.

Kim Fai's major products are solar traffic lights, landscape lights, solar panel and other related solar application products. These products need different components such as Mono-silicon, Poly-silicon and other solar related components. Due to the fact that Kim Fai was acquired in November of 2010, its purchases from its suppliers  accounted for small percentage of our total purchases. In 2010, the largest supplier, Guangzhou Sumyok Solar Power Technology Co., Ltd. which provided Poly-silicon to Kim Fai, accounted for just 2% of the Company’s total purchases.

Normally, the annual purchase plan for raw materials, such as aluminum and steel, is determined at the end of prior calendar year or beginning of the calendar year according to past customer's orders and our own sales forecast. Based on this plan, the Company places its purchase orders in the end of each month for the next month. Such purchase orders with key suppliers can be revised monthly in accordance with the purchase orders we received from our customers monthly. We believe that this arrangement protects us from inventory surplus when the orders from customers change.

Overall, our four largest suppliers, including our internal supplier, are Shenzhen Guanghaoyu Electronics Co., Ltd., Shenzhen BAK Battery Co., Ltd., Shenzhen Beiterui New Energy Material Co., Ltd., and Shenzhen NewPower Technology Co., Ltd. which in the aggregate amount accounted for approximately 47% of all components and raw materials purchased. Each of these suppliers accounted for more than 10% of our total purchases in 2010. Compared to 2009, our three largest vendors have changed due to our recent acquisitions. Our three largest vendors who accounted for over 10% in 2009 were Shenzhen Da Ke Battery Co., Ltd., Shenzhen Tian Lu Battery Co., Ltd., and Shenzhen Di Kai Te Battery Electronic Tech. Co., Ltd.  Our three largest vendors in 2009 and 2010 are listed as follows:

Percentages are based on total purchases of 2010, including intercompany purchases from Shenzhen NewPower Technology Co., Ltd., our subsidiary and one of our largest suppliers.

For raw materials other than steel and aluminum, we normally maintain from one week up to one month of inventory at our warehouse. All components and raw materials are available from numerous sources. We have not experienced any significant shortages of manufactured components or raw materials and normally do not carry inventories of these items in excess of what is reasonably required to meet our production and shipping schedules.

Dependence on One or a Few Customers

In 2010, through acquisitions, there is only one customer who accounted for more than 10% of the Company’s total sales. China Electronic Shenzhen Company was the only customer who accounted for 13% of the Company’s total sales. This customer primarily purchased finished battery packs from E’Jenie and Mobile power backup devices from Anytone. The second largest customer is Shenzhen Hua Yin Tong Battery Electronic Tech. Co., Ltd. which accounted for 6% of the Company’s total sales. The rest customers accounted less than 5% for each. Through acquisitions, the Company has diversified its customers.

In 2009, the Company’s two largest customers, Shenzhen Hua Yin Tong Battery Electronic Tech. Co., Ltd. and China Electronic Shenzhen Company, accounted for more than 10% of total sales. These two customers represented approximately 49% and 15%, respectively. These two customers primarily purchased finished batteries from E’Jenie. Because the unit price of batteries is significantly higher than battery shells and covers, the largest customer for E’Jenie’s battery shell and cover segment only contributed approximately 3% of our total revenue.

In 2009, Anytone’s largest customer was China Electronics Shenzhen Company. However, due to the fact that Anytone was not acquired until the end of 2009, this customer in this segment just contributed 1% of our total sales.

Although we do not have formal contracts with our customers, we have established unofficial long-termrelationships. Our customers place orders on a monthly basis and sales are processed with purchase orders. Compared to the sales of $12,833,518, or 49% of total sales, in 2009, the sales or sales percentage to Shenzhen Hua Yin Tong Battery Electronic Tech. Co., Ltd. decreased to $5,645,699, or 6% of total sales, in 2010. The decrease of sales to Shenzhen Hua Yin Tong Battery Electronic Tech. Co., Ltd. in 2010 was fulfilled by the increase of sales to our new customers, especially China Electronic (Shenzhen) Company. The percentage of total sales decrease was due to our expansion of customer bases through acquisitions.  However, we believe that our relationship with Shenzhen Hua Yin Tong is good and do not anticipate a material change in their current volume of business. In addition, the sales percentage of China Electronic Shenzhen Company slightly decreased in 2010. The decrease in sales percentage of China Electronic Shenzhen Company was due to the effect of our customers’ diversification through acquisitions. Compared to 2009, the total sales to China Electronic Shenzhen Company in 2010 increased.

Sales and Marketing

We focus our sales and marketing initiatives on becoming the leading manufacturer of lithium ion batteries application products. We promote our brand in order to build revenues, gain worldwide market share and promote consumer awareness and acceptance. Our in-house sales and marketing team contact local battery manufacturers to solicit interest in our products. If the manufacturer expresses an interest in our product offering, we ship them samples and if our products suit their needs orders are placed and filled. As of December 31, 2010, we had 61 sales and marketing personnel in total who all were located in China, of which 5 people are from E’Jenie, 32 people are from Anytone, 13 people are from NewPower and 11 people are from Kim Fai.

Intellectual Property

We protect our proprietary technology through various methods such as patents and patent applications, trademarks, non-disclosure agreements and trade secrets. We have filed and obtained a number of patents in China.

As of December 31, 2010, Anytone has been issued 34 patents by the State Intellectual Property Office.

Doing Business in China

The Chinese Legal System

The practical effect of the People's Republic of China legal system on our business operations in China can be viewed from two separate but intertwined considerations. First, as a matter of substantive law, the Foreign Invested Enterprise laws provide significant protection from government interference. In addition, these laws guarantee the full enjoyment of the benefits of corporate Articles and contracts to Foreign Invested Enterprise participants. These laws, however, do impose standards concerning corporate formation and governance, which are not qualitatively different from the general corporation laws of the several states. Similarly, the People's Republic of China accounting laws mandate accounting practices, which are not consistent with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. China's accounting laws require that an annual "statutory audit" be performed in accordance with People's Republic of China accounting standards and that the books of account of Foreign Invested Enterprises are maintained in accordance with Chinese accounting laws. Article 14 of the People's Republic of China Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprise Law requires a Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprise to submit certain periodic fiscal reports and statements to designate financial and tax authorities, at the risk of business license revocation.
 
Second, while the enforcement of substantive rights may appear less clear than United States procedures, the Foreign Invested Enterprises and Wholly Foreign- Owned Enterprises are Chinese registered companies, which enjoy the same status as other Chinese registered companies in business-to-business dispute resolution. Generally, the Articles of Association provide that all business disputes pertaining to Foreign Invested Enterprises are to be resolved by the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce in Stockholm, Sweden applying Chinese substantive law. Any award rendered by this arbitration tribunal is, by the express terms of the respective Articles of Association, enforceable in accordance with the "United Nations Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards (1958)." Therefore, as a practical matter, although no assurances can be given, the Chinese legal infrastructure, while different in operation from its United States counterpart, should not present any significant impediment to the operation of Foreign Invested Enterprises such as E'Jenie and Anytone.

Although the Chinese government owns the majority of productive assets in China, in the past several years the government has implemented economic reform measures that emphasize decentralization and encourage private economic activity. Because these economic reform measures may be inconsistent or ineffectual, there are no assurances that:

 
·
We will be able to capitalize on economic reforms.
 
 
·
The Chinese government will continue its pursuit of economic reform policies.

 
·
The economic policies, even if pursued, will be successful.

 
·
Economic policies will not be significantly altered from time to time.
  
 
·
Business operations in China will not become subject to the risk of nationalization.

Since 1979, the Chinese government has reformed its economic systems. Because many reforms are unprecedented or experimental, they are expected to be refined and improved. Other political, economic and social factors, such as political changes, changes in the rates of economic growth, unemployment or inflation, or in the disparities in per capita wealth between regions within China, could lead to further readjustment of the reform measures. This refining and readjustment process may negatively affect our operations.

Over the last few years, China's economy has registered a high growth rate. Recently, there have been indications that rates of inflation have increased. In response, the Chinese government recently has taken measures to curb this excessively expansive economy. These measures have included devaluations of the Chinese currency, the renminbi, restrictions on the availability of domestic credit, reducing the purchasing capability of certain of its customers, and limited re-centralization of the approval process for purchases of some foreign products. These austerity measures alone may not succeed in slowing down the economy's excessive expansion or control inflation, and may result in severe dislocations in the Chinese economy. The Chinese government may adopt additional measures to further combat inflation, including the establishment of freezes or restraints on certain projects or markets.
 
To date reforms to China's economic system have not adversely impacted our operations and are not expected to adversely impact operations in the foreseeable future; however, there can be no assurance that the reforms to China's economic system will continue or that we will not be adversely affected by changes in China's political, economic, and social conditions and by changes in policies of the Chinese government, such as changes in laws and regulations, measures which may be introduced to control inflation, changes in the rate or method of taxation, imposition of additional restrictions on currency conversion and remittance abroad, and reduction in tariff protection and other import restrictions.

Throughout this Annual Report we will refer to New Energy Systems Group as "New Energy," the "Company," "we," "us," and "our."
 
BUSINESS OVERVIEW

We operate our business through our wholly-owned subsidiaries E'Jenie Technology Development Co., Ltd. ("E'Jenie"), Shenzhen Anytone Technology Co., Ltd. ("Shenzhen Anytone"), Shenzhen NewPower Technology Co., Ltd. ("NewPower"), Shenzhen Kim Fai Solar Energy Techonology Co., Ltd. ("Kim Fai") companies incorporated under the laws of the Peoples Republic of China (PRC). Through our subsidiaries, we manufacture and distribute lithium battery shells and related products primarily in China. Based on our customer specification E'Jenie develops, customizes and produces steel, aluminum battery shells and aluminum caps. Currently, E'Jenie produces fourteen steel battery shell lines, nine aluminum battery shell lines , three aluminum battery cap lines and three steel battery cap lines.
 
We manufacture and distribute battery shells and covers for cellular phones. We maintain long-term relationships with large lithium battery manufacturers. We believe we will continue to receive orders from our loyal customers because of our reputation and quality of the products. Our professional marketing team maintains relationships with our current customers and at the same time searches for potential new customers. We seek to maintain and strengthen our position as a provider of battery shells and caps while increasing the breadth of our product line and improving the quality of our products.
 
The lithium battery was created in the 1990s, with its first mass production in 1993 in Japan. Lithium batteries were first used in notebook computers and now are used in cellular phones, video machines, laptops, digital cameras, MP3 players, global positioning satellite systems, 3G communication devices, hybrid cars and other electronic products. Batteries are becoming smaller, lighter, more efficient, longer lasting and free of pollution. The lithium battery energy/weight ratio exceeds its counterparts and with an excellent safety standard we believe it is the future of the battery industry. China has become one of the largest producers and consumers of lithium ion batteries. According to BBC Research, the lithium ion battery market was estimated around $6.8 billion. We anticipate that there will be even greater demand for lithium batteries in China and worldwide in the next few years. We believe the current trend towards smaller, lighter portable consumer products will continue and because of its size, the demand for lithium batteries will keep on increasing.

Under the current depressed economic environment, management of the Company made some strategic adjustments to keep the Company running and growing. To keep the existing battery pack accessories segment, the Company expanded into a related business field in August 2008- battery assembly and finished battery distribution, to diversify the line of products; consequently, the Company competes in the entire battery industry.
 
Having engaged in the battery business for years, management of the Company has accumulated abundant knowledge about the battery industry, established a strong network among battery companies which are on the both upstream and downstream of the battery distribution flow, and gained a lot of experience in battery distribution; therefore, we believe the Company is in a more favorable position than other companies in distributing finished batteries. Assembling and distributing finished batteries has a higher profit margin than manufacturing battery accessories, so management of the Company is confident the battery distribution business will be profitable due to the outstanding battery quality and strong distribution network the Company has.

On December 7, 2009, we closed the transactions contemplated by the share exchange agreement dated November 19, 2009 with Anytone International and Shenzhen Anytone. Pursuant to the share exchange agreement, we issued the shareholders of Anytone International 3,593,939 shares of the Company's restricted common stock and paid $10,000,000 in cash. Anytone is engaged in production of battery and battery related products.

On January 12, 2010, we closed the transactions contemplated by the share exchange agreement dated December 11, 2009 with NewPower.  Pursuant to the share exchange agreement, our Chinese subsidiary E’jenie acquired NewPower. We issued the shareholders of NewPower 1,823,346 shares of the Company’s restricted common stock and paid them $3,000,000 in cash. NewPower is engaged in manufacturing and distribution of lithium battery cells. 
  
On November 10, 2010, the Company’s subsidiary, Shenzhen Anytone executed a share exchange agreement to acquire all the equity interest of Kim Fai, a Chinese company engaged in the technology development and sale of solar application products and solar energy batteries, with all of the shareholders of Kim Fai. The purchase price for the outstanding stock of Kim Fai was $13,000,000 to be paid in cash, and 1,913,265 shares of common stock valued at $14,999,998, which was determined by multiplying the 1,913,265 shares by the stock price of New Energy at November 10, 2010. As of December 31, 2010, $6,529,286 has been paid and 1,913,265 shares were issued.

Net Revenue

Net revenue for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $94,661,657 compared to $26,375,890 for 2009, an increase of $68,285,767, or 259%. The increase was primarily due to the acquisition of Anytone in December 2009, which brought us $42,521,276 in battery sales, the acquisition of NewPower in January of 2010, which brought us $23,347,484 in battery cell sales, and the acquisition of Kim Fai in November 2010, which brought us $3,089,012 in solar products sales. We have been able to integrate the industry chain, optimize the internal and external resource to improve our productivity and increase our market share from these three acquisitions. In addition, during 2010 we began providing 60 day credit terms to our major customers which resulted in increased sales to them, compared to 2009, where the general credit terms which we provided to our customers was 30 days.

The Company’s existing battery shell and cover business generated net revenue of $ 11,758,403 during 2010 compared with $ 6,457,044 for 2009, an increase of $5,301,359, or 82%.  The increase in our sales in this segment was mainly due to a general increase in sales to our existing and new customers.

Cost of Revenue

Cost of revenue for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $68,445,312 or 72% of net sales compared to $18,331,539 or 70% of net sales for 2009, an increase of $50,113,773 or 273%.
 
Cost of revenue for the battery assembly and distribution business segment was $58,170,005, or 73% of total battery revenue for the year ended December 31, 2010, compared with $13,735,160 or 69% for 2009, an increase of $44,434,845 or 324%. The percentage increase in cost of revenue was mainly due to the relatively higher production cost at NewPower as well as an overall price inflation in China.

Cost of revenue for our existing battery shell and cover business during the year ended December 31, 2010 was $8,170,779, or 69% of sales compared to $4,596,379 for 2009, or 71% of sales.  The reduction in our percentage cost of revenue for battery shell and cover business resulted from cost control efforts as well as the economies of scale from our increased production.
 
Cost of revenue for our new production line of solar products since our acquisition of Kim Fai was $2,104,528, or 68% of sales.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2010 were $6,363,157 or 7% of net revenue, compared to $1,338,628, or 5% of net revenue for 2009, an increase of $5,024,529, or 375%. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to the operating expenses from our three newly acquired subsidiaries and also the increase of our sales, which resulted in an increase of $4,285,183 in operating expenses.

Selling expenses for the year ended December 31, 2010 were $422,491 or 1% of net revenue compared to $124,845 or 0.5% of net revenue for 2009, an increase of $297,646, which was mainly due to the increased salary of sales person but partially offset by the decreased marketing expense.

General and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2010 were $5,940,666 or 6% of net revenue compared to $1,213,783 or 5% of net revenue for 2009.  The increase in general and administrative expenses of $4,726,883 was mainly due to our three newly acquired subsidiaries, which increased general and administrative expenses by $3,894,279. In addition, employee salaries increased by $94,000 due to an overall price inflation in China and the Company recorded $675,000 and $103,000 and $32,000 as stock-based compensation to consultants, an independent director and an IR firm, respectively, during the year ended December 31, 2010.

Those consultants who were granted stock as compensation are working as branding strategy and financial consultants.

Net Income

Net income for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $15,189,385 compared to $5,837,395 for 2009, an increase in net income of $9,351,990 or 160% due to the reasons listed above.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES
 
Our operations and liquidity needs are funded primarily through cash flows from operations and short-term borrowings. Cash and cash equivalents were $13,065,008 as of December 31, 2010. Working capital at December 31, 2010 was $11,464,437.
 
The following is a summary of cash provided by or used in each of the indicated types of activities during the years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009:

Net cash provided by operating activities was $21,520,537 for the year ended December 31, 2010, compared to net cash provided by operating activities of $4,564,944 for 2009. The increase in net cash provided by operating activities for 2010 was mainly due to the increase in net income, decreased accounts receivable outstanding as a result of timely collection, and decreased payment for prepaid expense, deposits and other receivable with 2009.

Net cash used in investing activities was $5,976,338 for the year ended December 31, 2010 and $5,598,172 in   2009.  The cash used in 2010 consisted of investment in subsidiaries of $6,529,286 and $154,936 for the purchase of fixed assets partially offset by $705,514 of cash received from New Power and Kim Fai as a result of the acquisition.

Net cash used in financing activities was $6,373,809 for the year ended December 31, 2010 compared to net cash used in financing activities of $2,270,729 for 2009. During 2010, we paid the $5 million of the remaining balance of the cash consideration for the acquisition of Anytone, and $1.37 million to related parties.  In 2009, we repaid a bank loan of $2.20 million that was borrowed in August 2008.
 
Related Party Loans

As of December 31, 2010, the Company had a $543,585 unsecured, due on demand, and non-interest bearing loan payable to Dongrong Xu and Zaoxian Fang, the original owners of Shenzhen Anytone, for $462,047 and $81,538, respectively, in connection with the acquisition of Shenzhen Anytone by Anytone International. As of March 23, 2011, the Company has $543,585 outstanding.
 
Working Capital Requirements
 
Historically, cash from operations, short term financing and the sale of our Company stock have been sufficient to meet our cash needs. We believe we will be able to generate sufficient cash from operations to meet our working capital needs. However, our actual working capital needs for the long and short term will depend upon numerous factors, including operating results, competition, and the availability of credit facilities, none of which can be predicted with certainty. Future expansion will be limited by economic environment for the industry and opportunities, availability of financing and raising capital by selling stock.  We do not have any plans to sell our securities and there is no guarantee that if we do seek to sell securities in the future that we will be successful. We acquired Kim Fai by issuing 1,913,265 shares of common stock paying $13,000,000 by cash. During 2010, the 1,913,265 shares of common stock were issued and $6,529,286 was paid by cash. The remaining $6,470, 714 will be paid by our internally generated cash flow.
 
 OFF-BALANCE SHEET ARRANGEMENTS
 
We have never entered into any off-balance sheet financing arrangements and have never established any special purpose entities. We have not guaranteed any debt of other entities or entered into any options on non-financial assets.

Critical Accounting Policies

While our significant accounting policies are more fully described in Note 2 to our consolidated financial statements, we believe the following accounting policies are the most critical to aid you in fully understanding and evaluating this management discussion and analysis.

Basis of Presentation
 
The accompanying consolidated financial statements were prepared in conformity with US GAAP.  The Company’s functional currency is the Chinese Yuan Renminbi (CNY); however the accompanying consolidated financial statements were translated and presented in United States Dollars (“$” or “USD”).

Principles of Consolidation
 
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of New Energy Systems Group and its wholly owned subsidiaries Billion, E’Jenie, Anytone, NewPower and Kim Fai, are collectively referred to the Company.  All material intercompany accounts, transactions and profits were eliminated in consolidation.

Use of Estimates
 
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with US GAAP requires management to make certain estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Significant estimates include collectability of accounts receivable, accounts payable, sales returns and recoverability of long-term assets.

Inventory
 
Inventories are valued at the lower of cost (determined on a weighted average basis) or market. Management compares the cost of inventories with the market value and allowance is made to write down inventories to market value, if lower.  

Property, Plant & Equipment
 
Property and equipment are stated at cost. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are expensed as incurred; additions, renewals and betterments are capitalized. When property and equipment is retired or otherwise disposed of, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the respective accounts, and any gain or loss is included in operations. Depreciation of property and equipment is provided using the straight-line method for substantially all assets with estimated lives of:
 
Furniture and Fixtures
5 years
Equipment
5 years
Computer Hardware and Software
5 years
Building
30 years

Revenue Recognition
 
The Company manufactures and distributes batteries, battery shells and covers for portable consumer electronic devices in the PRC. The Company’s revenue recognition policies are in compliance with Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) 104 (codified in FASB ASC Topic 605). Sales revenue is recognized when a formal arrangement exists, the price is fixed or determinable, the delivery is completed, no other significant obligations of the Company exist and collectability is reasonably assured. No revenue is recognized if there are significant uncertainties regarding the recovery of the consideration due or the possible return of goods. Payments received before satisfaction of all relevant criteria for revenue recognition are recorded as unearned revenue.
  
Sales revenue is the invoiced value of goods, net of value-added tax (“VAT”). All of the Company’s products sold in the PRC are subject to Chinese value-added tax of 17% of the gross sales price. This VAT may be offset by VAT paid by the Company on raw materials and other materials included in the cost of producing the finished product. The Company records VAT payable and VAT receivable net of payments in the financial statements. The VAT tax return is filed offsetting the payables against the receivables. Sales and purchases are recorded net of VAT collected and paid as the Company acts as an agent for the government.

Foreign Currency Translation and Comprehensive Income (Loss)
 
During 2010 and 2009, the accounts of E’Jenie, Anytone, Kim Fai and NewPower were maintained, and its financial statements were expressed, in Chinese Yuan Renminbi ("CNY"). Such financial statements were translated into $ in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounts Standards (“SFAS”) No. 52, “Foreign Currency Translation,” (codified in Financial Accounting Standards Board (“FASB”) Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 830) with the CNY as the functional currency. According to the Statement, all assets and liabilities were translated at the current exchange rate, stockholder’s equity is translated at the historical rates and income statement items are translated at the average exchange rate for the period. The resulting translation adjustments are reported under other comprehensive income in accordance with SFAS No. 130, “Reporting Comprehensive Income” as a component of shareholders’ equity (codified in FASB ASC Topic 220). There were no significant fluctuations in the exchange rate for the conversion of CNY to USD after the balance sheet date.
 
Recent accounting pronouncements

On July 1, 2009, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2009-01, “Topic 105 - Generally Accepted Accounting Principles - amendments based on Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 168 , “The FASB Accounting Standards Codification™ and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles” (“ASU No. 2009-01”).  ASU No. 2009-01 re-defines authoritative GAAP for nongovernmental entities to be only comprised of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification™ (“Codification”) and, for SEC registrants, guidance issued by the SEC.  The Codification is a reorganization and compilation of all then-existing authoritative GAAP for nongovernmental entities, except for guidance issued by the SEC.  The Codification is amended to effect non-SEC changes to authoritative GAAP.  Adoption of ASU No. 2009-01 only changed the referencing convention of GAAP in Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements.
 
On February 25, 2010, the FASB issued ASU No. 2010-09 Subsequent Events Topic 855 “Amendments to Certain Recognition and Disclosure Requirements,” effective immediately. The amendments in the ASU remove the requirement for an SEC filer to disclose a date through which subsequent events have been evaluated in both issued and revised financial statements. Revised financial statements include financial statements revised as a result of either correction of an error or retrospective application of US GAAP. The FASB believes these amendments remove potential conflicts with the SEC’s literature. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements. 
 
On March 5, 2010, the FASB issued ASU No. 2010-11 Derivatives and Hedging Topic 815 “Scope Exception Related to Embedded Credit Derivatives.” This ASU clarifies the guidance within the derivative literature that exempts certain credit related features from analysis as potential embedded derivatives requiring separate accounting. The ASU specifies that an embedded credit derivative feature related to the transfer of credit risk that is only in the form of subordination of one financial instrument to another is not subject to bifurcation from a host contract under ASC 815-15-25, Derivatives and Hedging — Embedded Derivatives — Recognition. All other embedded credit derivative features should be analyzed to determine whether their economic characteristics and risks are “clearly and closely related” to the economic characteristics and risks of the host contract and whether bifurcation is required. The ASU is effective for the Company on July 1, 2010. Early adoption is permitted. The adoption of this ASU did not have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements.
 
In April 2010, the FASB codified the consensus reached in Emerging Issues Task Force Issue No. 08-09, “Milestone Method of Revenue Recognition.” FASB ASU No. 2010-17 provides guidance on defining a milestone and determining when it may be appropriate to apply the milestone method of revenue recognition for research and development transactions. FASB ASU No. 2010-17 is effective for fiscal years beginning on or after June 15, 2010, and is effective on a prospective basis for milestones achieved after the adoption date. The Company does not expect this ASU will have a material impact on its financial position or results of operations when it adopts this update on January 1, 2011.

ITEM 9A.  CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

We maintain disclosure controls and procedures that are designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in our reports filed or submitted under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”) is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the Securities and Exchange Commission’s rules and forms and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Pursuant to Rule 13a-15(b) under the Exchange Act, the Company carried out an evaluation, with the participation of the Company’s management, including the Company’s Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) (the Company's principal executive officer) and Chief Financial Officer (“CFO”) (the Company’s principal financial and accounting officer), of the effectiveness of the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures (as defined under Rule 13a-15(e) under the Exchange Act) as of December 31, 2010. Based upon that evaluation, the Company’s CEO and CFO noted a material weakness (see Management’s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting below) and concluded that the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were not effective.  The management has since implemented corrective actions designed to ensure that material information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is recorded processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and regulations and accumulated and communicated to them as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure.

Management's Annual Report on Internal Control Over Financial Reporting.

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) of the Exchange Act and for assessing the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting. As defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission (Rule 13a-15(f) under the Exchange Act of 1934, as amended), internal control over financial reporting is a process designed by, or under the supervision of the Company’s principal executive and principal financial officers and effected by its Board of Directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of the consolidated financial statements in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles.

Our internal control system was designed to, in general, provide reasonable assurance to the Company’s management and board regarding the preparation and fair presentation of published financial statements, but because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements.  Also, projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies or procedures may deteriorate.

Our management assessed the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2010.  The framework used by management in making that assessment was the criteria set forth in the document entitled “Internal Control – Integrated Framework” issued by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (the “COSO Report”). Based on that evaluation and the criteria set forth in the COSO Report, management concluded that at December 31, 2010 there was a material weakness and therefore, the internal control over financial reporting was not effective.  A material weakness is a deficiency, or a combination of control deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of the Company’s annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.

The Company’s material weakness in its internal control over financial reporting is related to a limited U.S. GAAP technical accounting expertise.  The Company’s internal accounting department has primarily engaged in ensuring compliance with PRC accounting and reporting requirements for our operating affiliates. As a result, our current internal accounting department responsible for financial reporting of the Company, on a consolidated basis, is relatively new to U.S. GAAP and the related internal control procedures required of U.S. public companies.  Although the Company’s accounting staff is professional and experienced in accounting requirements and procedures generally accepted in the PRC, management has determined that they require additional training and assistance in U.S. GAAP matters. In order to mitigate this material weakness to the fullest extent possible, external consultants were used and the Company’s review process was strengthened.  Therefore, management believes that the consolidated financial statements and other information presented herewith are materially correct.  Management believes that the weakness did not have any effect on the accuracy of the Company’s consolidated financial statements for the current reporting period.

The Company has identified the following other weaknesses in our internal controls unrelated to our limited U.S. GAAP technical accounting expertise (collectively, the “Weaknesses”):

·  
Lack of periodic review of our accounting manual, policy, and procedures; and
·  
Lack of periodic review of the accounting books.
 

 
 
22

 
 
Although the management of our Company, including the CEO and the CFO, believes that our disclosure controls and internal controls currently provide reasonable assurance that our desired control objectives have been met, management does not expect that our disclosure controls or internal controls will prevent all error and all fraud.  A control system, no matter how well conceived and operated, can provide only reasonable, not absolute, assurance that the objectives of the control system are met.  Further, the design of a control system must reflect the fact that there are resource constraints, and the benefits of controls must be considered relative to their costs.  Because of the inherent limitations in all control systems, no evaluation of controls can provide absolute assurance that all control issues and instances of fraud, if any, within our Company have been detected.  These inherent limitations include the realities that judgments in decision-making can be faulty, and that breakdowns can occur because of simple error or mistake.  Additionally, controls can be circumvented by the individual acts of some persons, by collusion of two or more people, or by management override of the controls.  The design of any system of controls is also based in part upon certain assumptions about the likelihood of future events, and there can be no assurance that any design will succeed in achieving its stated goals under all potential future conditions.

This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the Company’s registered public accounting firm pursuant to rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permanently exempt smaller reporting companies. 
 
Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

The Company hired a SOX consulting firm in 2009 to evaluate our SOX 404 internal control and procedures. Their primary objective was to streamline our internal control structure. The consulting firm had studied and examined our lines of responsibility and delegation of authority for our functional financial reporting areas so that they can evaluate whether responsibility lines are clearly drawn. They documented and tested our key controls over financial reporting in 2009 and introduced key auditable internal controls and procedures integrated with our financial reporting processes. Through their studies and examinations, management realized that our internal control over financial reporting was subject to weakness due to limited U.S. GAAP technical accounting expertise. In response, management has taken the following actions in 2010 and will continue to take further actions in 2011 to remediate this Weaknesses.

During 2010, the Company has taken the following actions with respect to our internal control over financial reporting to remediate the Weaknesses:

·  
The Company has set up an audit committee and held two committee meetings to review our quarterly financial reports; and
·  
The Company has hired three independent directors, which enhanced our Board of Directors’ right to review and determine the Company’s major capital expense.

 In 2011, the Company will undertake the following actions to remediate the Weaknesses:

·  
The Company intends to hire a new CFO who is familiar with Chinese accounting regulation, U.S. GAAP, and SEC regulations;
·  
The Company intends to hire more employees for its financial department who are familiar with U.S. GAAP;
·  
The Company intends to educate and further train their current employees to enhance their knowledge about U.S. GAAP;
·  
The Company will conduct periodic reviews of the Company’s accounting manual, policy and procedures, and accounting books; and
·  
The Company will use the financial statement disclosure lists in accordance with the U.S. GAAP to review all the future financial data.

In 2011, the Company will with our internal staff continue to conduct periodic internal control risk assessments and control testing so that we will be improving our internal control system’s integrity and to assess areas of material risk. Our internal audit staff in 2011 will develop additional control activities to ensure the effective function of our controls. The anticipated changes in internal control over financial reporting will enhance our control environment while also improving internal information flow and communication network. We will identify new risks through a constant risk assessment process and make our control activities an effective tool of monitoring our internal controls. The sole responsibility for establishing and maintaining our internal controls over financial reporting and all internal control systems improvement is that our management and company personnel including our internal audit department, which will all ensure proper and reliable financial reporting. Other than as described above, there have not been any changes in the Company’s internal control over financial reporting during the quarter ended December 31, 2010 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, the Company’s internal control over financial reporting.

Corporate Governance

Committees

The Company’s business, property and affairs are managed by or under the direction of the Board of Directors (the “Board”). Members of the Board are kept informed of our business through discussion with the chief executive and financial officers, by reviewing materials provided to them and by participating at meetings of the Board and its committees.

As of June 13, 2010, our board of directors has three committees - the audit committee, the compensation committee and the nominating committee. The audit committee is comprised of Elan Yaish, Shuxian Cui, and Li Liu with Elan Yaish serving as Chairman. The compensation committee is comprised of Elan Yaish, Shuxian Cui, and Li Liu, with Li Liu serving as chairman. The nominating committee is comprised of Elan Yaish, Shuxian Cui, and Li Liu, with Li Liu serving as chairman. All of the directors who serve on each of the audit, compensation, and nominating committees are "independent" directors based on the definition of independence in the listing standards of the NYSE Corporate Governance Rules.

Audit Committee

Our audit committee is involved in discussions with our independent auditor with respect to the scope and results of our year-end audit, our quarterly results of operations, our internal accounting controls and the professional services furnished by the independent auditor. Our Board has adopted a written charter for the audit committee which the audit committee reviews and reassesses for adequacy on an annual basis.  A copy of the audit committee’s current charter is available on our website at http://www.newenergysystemsgroup.com/pdf/Audit%20Committee%20Charter.pdf.

Our Board has determined that it has an "audit committee financial expert" as defined by Item 401(h) of Regulation S-K as promulgated by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Our audit committee financial expert is Elan Yaish.

Compensation Committee
 
The compensation committee oversees the compensation of our chief executive officer and our other executive officers and reviews our overall compensation policies for employees generally.  If so authorized by the Board, the committee may also serve as the granting and administrative committee under any option or other equity-based compensation plans which we may adopt.  The compensation committee does not delegate its authority to fix compensation; however, as to officers who report to the chief executive officer, the compensation committee consults with the chief executive officer, who may make recommendations to the compensation committee.  Any recommendations by the chief executive officer are accompanied by an analysis of the basis for the recommendations.  The committee will also discuss compensation policies for employees who are not officers with the chief executive officer and other responsible officers. A copy of the compensation committee’s current charter is available on our website at http://www.newenergysystemsgroup.com/pdf/Compensation%20Committee%20Charter.pdf.

Nominating Committee
 
The nominating committee is involved in evaluating the desirability of and recommending to the Board any changes in the size and composition of the board, evaluation of and successor planning for the chief executive officer and other executive officers.  The qualifications of any candidate for director will be subject to the same extensive general and specific criteria applicable to director candidates generally.  A copy of the nominating committee’s current charter is available on our website at http://www.newenergysystemsgroup.com/pdf/Nominating%20Committee%20Charter.pdf.

The nominating committee will consider qualified director candidates recommended by stockholders if such recommendations for director are submitted in writing to our Secretary at 116 West 23rd St., 5th Fl, New York, NY 10011, provided such recommendation has been made in accordance with the relevant by-laws.

At this time, no additional specific procedures to propose a candidate for consideration by the nominating committee, nor any minimum criteria for consideration of a proposed nomination to the Board, have been adopted.

Changes in Nominating Process
 
There are no material changes to the procedures by which security holders may recommend nominees to our Board of Directors.
 
Code of Ethics
 
We have adopted a code of ethics to apply to our principal executive officer, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer and controller, or persons performing similar functions. The Code of Ethics is currently available on our website at http://www.newenergysystemsgroup.com/pdf/CODE%20OF%20ETHICS%20AND%20BUSINESS%20CONDUCT%20FOR%20OFFICERS.pdf.

Compliance with Section 16(A) of the Exchange Act
 
Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, requires our executive officers and directors and persons who own more than 10% of a registered class of our equity securities to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission initial statements of beneficial ownership, reports of changes in ownership and annual reports concerning their ownership of the our common stock and other equity securities, on Form 3, 4 and 5 respectively. Executive officers, directors and greater than 10% shareholders are required by the Securities and Exchange Commission regulations to furnish our company with copies of all Section 16(a) reports they file.

Based solely on our review of the copies of such reports received by us, and on written representations by our officers and directors regarding their compliance with the applicable reporting requirements under Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act, we believe that, with respect to the fiscal year ended December 31, 2010, our officers and directors, and all of the persons known to us to own more than 10% of our common stock, filed all required reports on a timely basis except that Elan Yaish, Shuxian Cui, Nian Chen, Li Lui, Fushun Li, Jufeng Chen, Guofu Xiong, Weihe Yu, and Dai Rongqi were each late in filing a Form 3.
