The Company specializes in providing e-commerce solutions and services that facilitate multi-channel B2C (business-to-consumer) and B2B (business-to-business) transactions. Its solutions and services enable e-commerce transactions with speed and efficiency, and allow an interactive and engaging customer experience as well as targeted marketing and advertising. The Companys revenues are generated from one-time integration fees for the implementation of e-commerce solutions as well as recurring license and service fees.
These financial statements of Sitoa Global Inc. (the Company) have been prepared on a going-concern basis which assumes that the Company will be able to realize assets and discharge liabilities in the normal course of business for the foreseeable future.
The Company experienced losses since January 1, 2011 and has negative working capital as of June 30, 2013, which raises substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. The ability of the Company to meet its commitments as they become payable is dependent on the ability of the Company to obtain necessary financing or achieving a profitable level of operations. There are no assurances that the Company will be successful in achieving these goals.
The Company believes that it can continue to receive revenues from its customers developing and hosting e-commerce solutions for them. The Company expects to continue utilizing its efficient cost structure by sourcing personnel in Asia for servicing its customers. The Company will also consider raising additional funding from investors.
These financial statements do not give effect to adjustments to the amounts and classifications to assets and liabilities that would be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.
We have prepared the unaudited condensed financial statements included herein pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (the SEC) for interim periods. The unaudited condensed financial statements included herein reflect all normal recurring adjustments, which are, in the opinion of our management, necessary to state fairly the results of operations and financial position for the periods presented. The results for the six month period ended June 30, 2013 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the entire fiscal year ending December 31, 2013 or for any interim or future period.
These unaudited condensed financial statements should be read in conjunction with Managements Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations and the audited financial statements and notes thereto included in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012.
USE OF ESTIMATES
The preparation of the Companys consolidated financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles of the United States of America requires management to make 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. Management makes its best estimate of the ultimate outcome for
SITOA GLOBAL INC.
Notes to Financial Statements
these items based on historical trends and other information available when the financial statements are prepared. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
CERTAIN RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES
The Company relies on leased hardware and software from third parties to offer its e-commerce solutions and services. Management believes that alternate sources are available; however, disruption or termination of these relationships could adversely affect our operating results in the near-term. The Company currently has two customers who provide all of the Companys recurring revenue. Loss of any one of the two customers would have a significant impact on the Companys revenue.
Operating segments are defined as components of an enterprise about which separate financial information is available that is evaluated regularly by our chief operating decision maker, or decision making group, in deciding how to allocate resources and in assessing performance.
Sitoa Global specializes in providing e-commerce solutions and services that facilitate multi-channel B2C (business-to-consumer) and B2B (business-to-business) transactions. We identify our reportable segments as those customer groups that represent more than 10% of our combined revenue or gross profit or loss of all reported operating segments. We manage our business on the basis of the one reportable segment online e-commerce solutions and service provider. The accounting policies for segment reporting are the same as for the Company as a whole. We do not segregate assets by segments since our chief operating decision maker, or decision making group, does not use assets as a basis to evaluate a segments performance.
CASH AND CASH EQUIVALENTS
Cash equivalents comprise certain highly liquid instruments with a maturity of three months or less when purchased.
SHORT TERM INVESTMENT
Short term investment that are classified as trading is measured subsequently at fair value in the statement of financial position. Unrealized holding gains and losses for short term investment are included in earnings.
NEW ACCOUNTING PRONOUNCEMENTS
In June 2011, the FASB issued ASU 2011-05, Presentation on Comprehensive Income. ASU 2011-05 provides guidance that allows companies the option of how to present the components of, and a total, for net income, the components of, and a total, for other comprehensive income, and a total for comprehensive income as either one continuous statement of comprehensive income or in two separate but consecutive statements. There will no longer be the option to present items of other comprehensive income in the statement of stockholders' equity.

Liquidity and Capital Resources
Our registered independent auditors for the year ended December 31, 2012 have issued a going concern opinion as per our most recent Form 10-K. This means that there is substantial doubt that we can continue as an on-going business for the next 12 months unless we obtain additional capital or generate revenues to pay our bills. We believe that we can participate in the growth of e-commerce as a provider of e-commerce solutions and services. Our other source for cash at this time is investments by others in the Company. We may need to raise cash to fully implement our projects and stay in business.
On June 30, 2013, we had a working capital deficit of $31,467 compared with a working capital deficit of $47,881 on December 31, 2012. The decrease is due to an increase in cash and cash equivalents. Operating activities used $118,783 in cash in the six months ended June 30, 2013. Investing activities in the six months ended June 30, 2013 used zero. Financing activities provided $170,000 in the six months ended June 30, 2013.
We may not have enough working capital to complete our plan of operations. If it turns out that we have not raised enough capital to complete our anticipated business development, we will try to raise additional funds from private placements, convertible debentures or loans. There is no assurance that we will raise additional capital in the future or that future financings will be available to us on acceptable terms. If we require additional capital and are unable to raise it, we may have to suspend or cease operations.
We earned revenue from providing hosting and integration services to 4-GS, Ltd., ZBL Cybermarketing, Ltd., i-Media, Ltd. and Chunjie365. For all customers, we provide e-commerce solutions with our engineering team and personnel in Asia. We charge 4-GS, ZBL Cybermarketing and i-Media monthly integration and hosting fees plus additional professional fees for project management and consulting. The fee arrangement with those three companies is covered under the strategic partnership agreement with Soconison Technology Ventures, dated July 11, 2011. Soconison Technology Ventures is a shareholder in 4-GS, ZBL Cybermarketing and i-Media. From Chunjie365, we receive monthly integration and hosting fees.
Results of Operation
Service Revenue was $806,700 and $959,409 for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $1,690,573 and $1,771,939 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The decrease is due to recognizing lower revenue from our customers.
Cost of Service
Cost of Service was $802,940 and $768,045 for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $1,432,054 and $1,356,146 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The increase is due to higher personnel costs required for the development and hosting of e-commerce solutions for our customers.
General and administrative: General and administrative expenses were $504,425 and $191,635 for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $710,857 and $424,177 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The increase was caused by an upgrade of the Companys internal data management and catalog systems.
Stock-based compensation: Stock-based compensation expenses were $0 and $87,500 for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $0 and $325,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The decrease is due to the end of share option vesting.
The Company had a net loss of $501,498 and $88,604 for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively, and $438,449 and $335,050 for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

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. 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. Except as set forth below, we are currently not aware of any such legal proceedings or claims that we believe will have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition or operating results.
Synnex Corp. v. Sitoa International, Inc., et al.
The Company has been joined as third-party defendant in Synnex Corp. v. Sitoa International, Inc., et al., filed in the Superior Court of California, Alameda County. On October 1, 2010, Synnex Corp., a supplier of electronics products, originally brought suit against Sitoa Corporation, an internet re-seller controlled by our former Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Calbert Lai, alleging liability for approximately $54,000 of unpaid product. Sitoa Corporation admitted owing the amount but contended that this liability should be set off against Synnex's liability to Sitoa Corporation for lost profits and other damages suffered by them, due to a pricing error committed by Synnex in December 2009. On October 14, 2010, Sitoa Corporation answered the original complaint and filed a cross-complaint against Synnex, seeking to recover damages for the pricing error.
On October 11, 2011, Synnex amended its complaint to include the Company as a defendant, under the mistaken belief that the Company is responsible for the debts and obligations of Sitoa Corporation, including the $54,000 that is the subject of Synnexs complaint.
We do not believe that Synnexs claim against the Company has any merit. We originally changed our name to Sitoa Global, Inc. in anticipation of a merger with Sitoa Corporation which was never consummated. Instead, we entered into a software licensing agreement with Sitoa Corporation, in connection with which Mr. Calbert Lai, the Chief Executive Officer of Sitoa Corporation, was appointed as our Chief Executive Officer. However, on March 1, 2012, we rescinded and terminated the software licensing agreement, pursuant to a Rescission and Termination Agreement, dated March 1, 2012, between the Company and Sitoa Corporation, and Mr. Lai resigned from his position with the Company. As such, we are no longer affiliated with Sitoa Corporation and we were not affiliated with Sitoa Corporation at the time when the issue in question occurred. Furthermore, Sitoa Corporation has admitted to owing the amount claimed by Synnex in the case. Trial in the case resulted in a verdict by the jury in the amount of $1,560,000 for lost profits and other damages in the favor of Sitoa Corporation on October 31, 2012. Synnex has since filed motions for new trial and appeal.
