ITEM 1. BUSINESS

 

Corporate History and Corporate Structure 

Moxian, Inc. (the “Company,” “Moxian,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) was incorporated in the State of Nevada on October 12, 2010 and was formerly known as SECURE NetCheckIn Inc. We previously engaged in the business of offering a cloud-based scheduling and notification product targeted to urgent care facilities and medical offices to increase the satisfaction of patients in the scheduling and timing of appointments. 

On February 17, 2014, the Company incorporated Moxian CN Samoa under the laws of the Independent State of Samoa. 

On February 21, 2014, we acquired Moxian BVI, together with its subsidiaries, Moxian HK, Moxian Shenzhen, and Moxian Malaysia through our wholly owned subsidiary, Moxian CN Samoa from Rebel Group, Inc. (“REBL”), a company incorporated in the State of Florida and of which our Chief Executive Officer, James Mengdong Tan, is a promoter as the term is defined under Rule 405 of Regulation C promulgated under the Securities Act, by entering into a License and Acquisition Agreement (the “License and Acquisition Agreement”) in consideration of $1,000,000 (“Moxian BVI Purchase Price”). As a result, Moxian BVI, together with its subsidiaries, Moxian HK, Moxian Shenzhen, and Moxian Malaysia, became our subsidiaries. Under the License and Acquisition Agreement, REBL also agreed to grant us the exclusive right to use REBL’s intellectual property rights (collectively, the “IP Rights”) in Mainland China, Malaysia, and other countries and regions where REBL conducts its business (the “Licensed Territory”), and the exclusive right to solicit, promote, distribute and sell REBL products and services in the Licensed Territory for five years (the “License,”) and in consideration of such License, the Company agreed to pay to REBL (i) $1,000,000 as license maintenance royalty each year commencing on the first anniversary of the date of the License Agreement; and (ii) 3% of the gross profits resulting from the distribution and sale of the products and services on behalf of the Company as an earned royalty. 

Moxian BVI was incorporated on July 3, 2012 under the laws of the British Virgin Islands. 

Moxian HK was incorporated on January 18, 2013 and became Moxian BVI’s subsidiary on February 14, 2013. Moxian HK is currently engaged in the business of online social media and plans to launch its business in China. 

Moxian Shenzhen was invested in and wholly owned by Moxian HK. Moxian Shenzhen was incorporated on April 8, 2013 and is engaged in the business of internet technology, computer software, and commercial information consulting. 

Moxian Malaysia was incorporated on March 1, 2013 and became Moxian HK’s subsidiary on April 2, 2013. Moxian Malaysia is conducting its business in the IT Services and Media Advertising industries. 

Shenzhen Moyi Technologies Co., Ltd. (“Moyi”) was incorporated on July 19, 2013 under the laws of the People’s Republic of China and became a variable interest entity (“VIE”) of Moxian Shenzhen since July 15, 2014. Moxian Shenzhen controls Moyi through arrangement that absorbs operations risk, as if Moyi were a wholly-owned subsidiary of Moxian Shenzhen. 

Moxian Technologies (Beijing) Co., Ltd. (“Moxian Beijing”) was incorporated on December 10, 2015 under the laws of the People’s Republic of China and was a wholly-owned subsidiary of Moxian Shenzhen. Moxian Beijing is engaged in the business of internet technology, computer software, and commercial information consulting. 

On February 17, 2014, Moxian IP Samoa was incorporated in the State of Samoa as a wholly-owned subsidiary of REBL. On February 19, 2014, Moxian HK and Moxian Shenzhen entered into an Assignment and Assumption Agreement with Moxian IP Samoa, whereby Moxian HK and Moxian Shenzhen assigned and transferred all of the intellectual property rights that they respectively owned in connection with the Moxian business to Moxian IP Samoa in consideration of $1,000,000. 

On January 30, 2015, the Company entered into an Equity Transfer Agreement (the “Equity Transfer Agreement,” such transaction, the “Equity Transfer Transaction”) with REBL, to acquire from REBL 100% of the equity interests of Moxian IP Samoa for $6,782,000 (the “Moxian IP Samoa Purchase Price”). Moxian IP Samoa owns all the intellectual property rights relating to the operation, use and marketing of the Moxian Platform, including all of the trademarks, patents and copyrights that are used in the Company’s business. As a result of the Equity Transfer Transaction, Moxian IP Samoa became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. 

In addition, under the Equity Transfer Agreement, the Company and REBL agreed to terminate the License and Acquisition Agreement. Immediately prior to the execution of the Equity Transfer Agreement, the Moxian BVI Purchase Price was not yet paid and no license maintenance royalty or earned royalty under the License and Acquisition Agreement had accrued. 

Under the Equity Transfer Agreement, the Company and REBL agreed to extinguish all of the Company’s liabilities owed to REBL under the License and Acquisition Agreement, other than the Moxian BVI Purchase Price. 

The Company agreed to issue to REBL a convertible promissory note for $7,782,000 (the “Rebel Note”), representing the sum of the Moxian IP Samoa Purchase Price and the Moxian BVI Purchase Price. The Rebel Note was due and payable on October 30, 2015 without any interest. The Company had the option to cause REBL to convert any and all amounts due under the Rebel Note into shares of the Company’s Common Stock at the conversion price of $1.00 per share (the “Conversion Price”), if the volume weighted average price (the “VWAP”) of the Company’s Common Stock for a period of 30 trading days immediately prior to the date of conversion was higher than the Conversion Price. The Company also had a right of first refusal to purchase the shares issuable upon conversion of the Rebel Note at the price of 80% of the VWAP for 30 trading days immediately prior to the date of the proposed repurchase by the Company. 

On August 14, 2015, the VWAP of the Company’s Common Stock for 30 trading days prior to August 14, 2015 was higher than $1.00, which triggered the conversion of the Rebel Note. The Company notified REBL that it elected to cause it to convert $3,891,000 of the Rebel Note into 3,891,000 shares of its Common Stock (the “August Conversion”). As a result of the August Conversion, the remaining amount of the Rebel Note was $3,891,000.

On September 30, 2015, the Company notified REBL that it elected to cause it to convert the remainder of the Rebel Note into 3,891,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock (the “September Conversion”). After the August Conversion and September Conversion, the entire balance of the Rebel Note was converted into total of 7,782,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock. 

On November 14, 2016, the Company announced the completion of a public offering of 2,501,250 shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $4.00 per share. The net proceeds from the offering is approximately $8.5 million after deducting placement agents' commissions and other estimated offering expenses. In connection with the offering, the Company's common stock began trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market on November 15, 2016 under the symbol "MOXC".

Overview

 

We are in the O2O (“Online-to-Offline”) business. With respect to our business, O2O means providing an online platform for small and medium sized enterprises (“SMEs”) with brick and mortar businesses that allows them to conduct business, interact with existing customers and obtain new customers online. We refer to our customers as “Merchant Clients” and we use the term “Users,” to refer to those existing and potential customers of our Merchant Clients who use our mobile application and platform. Through the features, products and services offered on our platform, we seek to create interactions between Users and Merchant Clients, which will allow Merchant Clients to study consumer behavior. Our platform has five main components that allow Merchant Clients to conduct targeted advertising campaigns and promotions, which we believe are effective because they are geared to the customers that a Merchant Client wishes to attract. Our platform is also designed and built to encourage Users to return and refer new Users, each of which is a potential customer for our Merchant Clients.

 

We believe we are different from other companies in that our plan is to sign up merchants first and build our user base utilizing their customers. Many companies utilize a different strategy of building up a user base and then signing up paid merchants and other clients to access that user base.

 

The current version of our platform is called “Moxian+” which consists of our user mobile application (the “App” and collectively the “Apps”) called the Moxian+ User App and a separate App for our Merchant Clients called the Moxian+ Business App. Both versions of the App are currently available in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. There is no charge to download either App. We also have a website that can be accessed at www.moxian.com where either App can also be downloaded.

 

Moxian principally operates in mainland China with its headquarters in Shenzhen, China. We launched Moxian version 1.0 which only consists of the User component App in Malaysia in June 2013 and subsequently in China in July 2014. During 2014 to 2015, we developed the Apps as part of “Moxian+,” the successor to Moxian version 1.0 which was officially launched in October 2015 in China only. In December 2015, we opened our Beijing office. We are currently operating in both Shenzhen and Beijing.

 

We are currently in the process of expanding our operations to Shanghai and Guangzhou.

 

Market Opportunities

 

China currently has more than 850 million users actively utilizing mobile applications (http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/2015-11/10/c_134802668.htm). In 2014, the China Internet Network Information Center reported that there were approximately 618 million internet users throughout Asian countries, representing a penetration rate of approximately 46 percent. Among these internet users, over 90 percent have a social media account. For comparison, just 67 percent of U.S. internet users engage in social media. However, the opportunity in China extends beyond the ability to reach a large target audience. According to the Data Center of China Internet, 38 percent of users claim they are more likely to buy items recommended by other social media users (Statistical Report on Internet Development in China by China Internet Network Information Center, 2014).

 

O2O platforms serve to substantially enhance marketing and commerce performance for brands and retailers compared to traditional digital marketing approaches. O2O refers to any and all activities that originate online and eventually result in a shopper going to a physical store. Forrester Research predicts that by 2016, more than half of the $3.5 trillion spent in offline US retail will be influenced by the websites (Forrester’s US Cross-Channel Retail Forecast, 2011 To 2016).

 

According to official statistics, China’s O2O market reached 98.7 billion yuan (approximately US$9 billion) in 2011. Industry analysts anticipate that the China O2O market will quadruple to 418 billion yuan (approximately US$67 billion) in 2016 (http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/chinas-o2o-market-the-path-to-success-is-not-uni-directional-201906281.html). Moxian believes it will be able to capture a share in this market by offering its platform to merchants. Our platform allows users to be aware of their interested merchants’ on-going promotions so as to attract them to make purchases offline.

Services for Merchant Clients

 

Social Customer Relationship Management (“SCRM”)

 

Our SCRM is built to allow Merchant Clients to input their customer details into the system. The SCRM can then follow the customers’ activities and allows Merchant Clients to send promotional messages and advertisements to Users through our platform.

 

Targeted Marketing

 

Our Targeted Marketing tool is offered to paid Merchant Clients only. Its feature allows our Merchant Clients to contact their targeted Users directly by sending messages, promotions and vouchers to a specific range of customers, such as customers who have visited their store in the past week or month or customers who have upcoming birthdays. Merchant Clients can send Users discounts or messages and target people by age, gender or other criteria. We also provide targeted marketing to assist Merchant Clients to reach customers more efficiently. For example, we can generate a list of customers who have browsed a Merchant Client’s products over the past two months more than once, but not made a purchase, and a discount can be offered to them for certain products. In addition, Merchants Clients can find Users near their physical shops (within 1,000 meters) and invite them to their stores.

 

Analytics Reports

 

Detailed reports are provided to paid Merchant Clients. These reports allow Merchant Clients to see the number of followers they have, the number of points redeemed and rewarded, and the number of vouchers purchased or redeemed offline. Merchant Clients with a free account receive only basic analytics, such as how many MO-points have been distributed. However, for paid accounts, Merchant Clients receive more detailed analytics regarding the buying patterns and likes of current and potential customers.

 

Merchant Clients can provide rewards to customers by including their customer’s mobile number. Customers who have installed the Moxian+ User App can then receive rewards on the platform in the form of MO-Points or discount vouchers. Customers who do not have the Moxian+ User App installed will receive a text message informing them of their rewards and that they can download the Moxian+ User App to redeem them.

 

Event Hosting

 

Merchant Clients can host events through the platform and invite Users within a selected range, such as by proximity, common interest, or gender to participate in the event.

 4 
 

 

Vouchers and Product Listings

 

Merchant Clients can customize coupons or vouchers on the platform, daily or with whatever frequency they wish, or list available products.

 

Multiple store features

 

For those Merchant Clients which have multiple stores in different locations, our platform allows different stores to access to the same account. Moreover, different stores may be differentiated for which information they can access to by entering their location in the app.

 

Webpage to Create an Online Shop

 

We provide a Do it Yourself Webpage to create an online shop. The Merchant Client can include its logo, its product/service category, telephone number, and other information that is relevant to the business. The Shop will appear in the Moxian+ User App. A Merchant Client can manage its own shop by adding more information, posting events, offers, and discounts.

  

Our Platform

 

There are five components to our Moxian+ platform, which is the backend of our application. The Moxian+ platform includes the social media engine, the e-commerce engine, the rewards engine, the gamification engine, and the analytical engine.

 

Social Media Engine

 

Our data use policy governs the use of information that users have chosen to share and present. We also design our products to include robust safety tools. These tools are coupled with partnerships with online safety experts to offer protection for all users, particularly teenagers. We work with law enforcement to help promote the safety of our users as required by law. To the extent permissible, and with prior consent from the Users, we analyze User’s information to understand the User’s behavior.

 

E-Commerce

 

Utilizing our e-commerce features, Merchant Clients are able to conduct business by posting products, offering coupons and sales as well as creating events and blogs through the Moxian+ Business App. On the other hand, Users can shop at the Merchant Clients’ shops like at any other e-commerce platform by ordering online and receiving the products by express delivery.

 

Rewards

 

Users are rewarded with MO-Points and MO-Coins. MO-Points are points granted to Users when they shop at Merchant Clients, play games on our platform or engage in other activities sponsored by the Merchant Clients. MO-Points can be redeemed at the Merchant Clients’ shops as determined by the Merchant Clients, or can be redeemed for MO-Coins which are virtual currency and can be used at any Merchant Client’s stores. MO-Coins are backed by cash paid by Merchant Clients which is held in an escrow account. They can be redeemed for cash, or used to purchase more MO-Points. The ratio of MO-Coins to actual currency is currently set at 1:1. A Merchant Client who pays for MO-Coins can also redeem them for cash.

 

MO-Points and MO-Coins are traceable and trackable on the Moxian+ platform through designated serial number so that we can see exactly what Users do with them and use that information to assist our Merchant Clients to determine customer behaviors.

 

From time to time, we may also give away MO-Points or MO-Coins as a promotion to increase our User base. We also plan to have our own “shopping mall” with merchandise that Users can purchase with MO-Points and MO-Coins in the upcoming year.

 

Gamification

 

Together with outside contractors we develop games for Users to earn MO-Points and MO-Coins and other rewards which may be specific to a certain Merchant Client. Users can use MO-Points to play games offered in our game center.

 

Analytical Engine

 

Moxian provides analytics to each Merchant Client for the consumer behavior Moxian learns through its platform to assist our Merchant Clients to better design their promotions and reach their target audience. We analyze consumer behavior through “likes” of posts by certain merchants or the places they tend to “check-in” to, to determine their usual hang out.

 

News Center

 

On “Hot Topics,” the most popular topics and related blogs, news, and journals being discussed among Users will be displayed, so that Users can stay informed in real time. “Hot Events” provide information about events to be hosted by Merchant Clients, and they are categorized by different interests. In addition, Users will be able to see the list of other nearby Users, with information that a User may be willing to have displayed.

Advertisements

 

On December 31, 2015, the Company entered into an Exclusive Partnership Agreement with Xinhua New Media Culture Communication Co. Ltd. (“Xinhua New Media”), pursuant to which the Company is engaged to operate and resell the advertisement space for the Xinhua New Media App.

 

The Company plans to expand its sales force to include an advertisement sales team to promote the Xinhua New Media App advertisement space. In addition to selling the Xinhua Advertisement space, the sales team will also be selling our own advertisement space on Moxian platform.

 

We believe that we will benefit from the partnership with Xinhua New Media in two ways:

 

Firstly, Traction and growth of users. Users of the Xinhua New Media App will be rewarded with Mo-Coins and Mo-Points when engaging in interactive activities, such as clicking on any advertisements, within the platform. These Xinhua New Media App users are expected to then log into Moxian Platform to redeem their Mo-Coins and Mo-Points. This will allow us to grow our user base.

 

Secondly, Cross-Selling. We will bundle our Moxian+ Merchant App with the advertisement space on the Xinhua New Media App and offer a package deal to merchants. The package deals will only be offered to large-scale customers who have chain-shops based in China.

 

In addition, we are also the exclusive operator and partner for the gaming platform included in the Xinhua New Media App. Moxian charges a fee for operating the gaming platform, which generate revenues from advertisement, sponsorship and profit sharing arrangements with gaming companies.

All transactions carried across our platform is done through our virtual currency. We charge a fee for any transaction carried on our platform within a range of 3% to 5% of the transaction price.

 

White-Label Solution

 

We offer large scale merchants the option to “white label” our Moxian+ Merchant and User App. We charge a yearly fee to the merchants. White-label merchants sell Moxian+ Merchant and User App in their own names. We also offer customization of Moxian+ Merchant and User App at the request of merchants for an additional fee.

 

Marketing Strategy

 

Our success is dependent upon signing up paid Merchant Clients. The Merchant Clients, in turn, build up our base of Users by encouraging their customers to download our User App and they can offer MO-Points and MO-Coins to attract people to download our App. In order to attract more Merchant Clients, we also need to have an established base of Users. Therefore, we are currently making efforts to sign up more Merchant Clients, as well as attempting to get more Users to download our User App.

 

We initially marketed to merchants in Shenzhen, China only where we launched Moxian version 1.0. Although this was a beta test, we were able to get 30,000 merchants to sign up. We are currently targeting these same merchants for Moxian+ and expanding the user base.

 

We currently have a sales force of 20 people based in Shenzhen, China. In addition, we opened an office in Beijing and plan to have a sales force of 80 people there by the beginning of 2017.

 

We are currently scheduling sales events in Shenzhen for the Christmas and Chinese New Year seasons to promote our products and services to our initial Merchant Clients and give away MO-Points and MO-Coins.

 

In the future, we also plan to utilize third party distributors with an existing base of merchants to market our products.

 

Competition

 

Although major global social network platform providers have the advantage of an existing user base, we believe Moxian has a unique social business model and social media features that enable us to stand out among the competition. Other major social networking platforms usually focus on personal photo sharing, video sharing, chat features, group chatting, micro-blogging, following groups’ online activities, rating and commenting on products and services. What we believe makes Moxian stand out is that our Merchant Clients have: (i) their own promotion pages, (ii) local event programs for their customer Users, (iii) location-based promotion information, (iv) mobile chat applications, (v) free prizes for the Users, (vi) advertising on Moxian’s social pages, (vii) a social customer relationship management systems, (viii) a loyalty program using MO-Points and MO-Coins, and (ix) customized online games to promote merchants’ brands and group sales promotions. Therefore, by establishing our Merchant Client base first, we believe that our user acquisition will be easier to build up.

In China, we face stiff competition. Our major competitor in China is Dazhong Dianping (“Dianping”). Dianping targets merchant clients as we do. In addition, Dianping also offers merchants a customized page, location based promotion information and a relationship management tool. The other principal competitors are Nuomi, Meituan and WeChat.

 

However, we believe Moxian+ is superior for SMEs because our SCRM offers Merchant Clients the ability to interact with their customers via instant messenger. In addition, we offer virtual currencies that can entice and encourage repeated visits by the Users.

 

Our Technology

 

Technology is the key to our success in achieving efficiency for our business, improving the user experience and enabling innovation. We employ a team of over 80 engineering and data analytics personnel to build our technology platform and develop new online and mobile products. Key components of our technology include:

 

Data Science

 

Our data science technology serves various types of data-intensive computational needs, including deep learning, high-volume batch processing and multi-variable and multi-dimensional real-time analytics. Data mining and transaction, payment and behavioral data science capabilities are used extensively in numerous applications such as search and online marketing.

 

Security

 

We take various steps to ensure the security of the Moxian+ platform and the personal information of users of the platform, as well as the ecommerce transactions conducted on the platform. We conduct daily testing and have engaged an outside security consultant to conduct further testing and make recommendations as to additional security measures.

Foreign Operations

 

Substantially all of our business operations are conducted in Mainland China. Accordingly, our results of operations, financial condition and prospects are subject to a significant degree to economic, political and legal developments in the PRC. We also have operations in Hong Kong. Operating in foreign countries involves substantial risk. For example, our business activities subject us to a number of Chinese laws and regulations, such as anti-corruption laws, tax laws, foreign exchange controls and cash repatriation restrictions, data privacy and security requirements, labor laws, intellectual property laws, privacy laws, and anti-competition regulations, which have uncertainties. Any failure to comply with the PRC laws and regulations could subject us to fines and penalties, make it more difficult or impossible to do business in China and harm our reputation.

 

Operating in foreign countries also subjects us to risk from currency fluctuations. Our primary exposure to movements in foreign currency exchange rates relates to non-U.S. dollar denominated sales and operating expenses. The weakening of foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar adversely affects the U.S. dollar value of our foreign currency-denominated sales and earnings. This could either reduce the U.S. dollar value of our prices or, if we raise prices in the local currency, it could reduce the overall demand for our offerings. Either could adversely affect our revenue. Conversely, a rise in the price of local currencies relative to the U.S. dollar could adversely impact our profitability because it would increase our costs denominated in those currencies, thus adversely affecting gross margins.

 

Research and Development

 

There are 60 people in the Research & Development department, which is responsible for developing and improving the mobile application, Moxian platform and customer experience in using our products. During the past two fiscal years, we spent approximately $2.6 million and $1.5 million on research and development for the years ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

 

Employees

 

We have a total of 160 employees, of which we have 21 employees in the product team, 60 employees in research and development team, 26 employees in sales and marketing department, 17 employees in customer and technical support team and the remaining in the administrative department. We consider our employee relations to be good, and to date have not experienced a work stoppage due to a labor dispute.

 

PRC Law

 

Overview

 

Extensive regulatory schemes governing the operation of business with respect to telecommunications and Internet information services were published by the Chinese government. Besides the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and State Administration of Radio, Film and Television, which regulates radio and television stations in China (“SARFT”), the various services of the PRC Internet industry are also regulated by various other governmental authorities, such as the State Council Information Office (“SCIO”), the General Administration for Press and Publication (“GAPP”), and the Ministry of Public Security.

 

Among all the regulations, the Telecommunications Regulations of the People’s Republic of China, promulgated on September 25, 2000, is the primary governing law. The Telecom Regulations set out the general framework under which domestic Chinese companies such as the Company’s subsidiaries and VIE may engage in various types of telecommunications services in the PRC. They reiterate the long-standing principle that telecommunications service providers need to obtain operating licenses as a mandatory precondition to begin operation.

 

The Chinese government restricts foreign investment in Internet-related businesses. Accordingly, we operate our Internet-related businesses in China through Moyi, our VIE operating in Shenzhen, China.

 

Internet Information Services

 

The governing law for Internet information service is the Measures for the Administration of Internet Information Services, or the Internet Content Provider (“ICP”) Measures, which went into effect on September 25, 2000. Under the ICP Measures, any entity that provides information to online Internet users must obtain an operating license from Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (“MIIT”) or its local branch at the provincial level in accordance with the Telecom Regulations described above. The ICP Measures further stipulate that entities providing online information services in areas of news, publishing, education, medicine, health, pharmaceuticals and medical equipment must obtain permission from responsible national authorities prior to applying for an operating license from MIIT or its local branch at the provincial or municipal level. Moreover, ICPs must display their operating license numbers in a conspicuous location on their websites. ICPs must police their websites to remove categories of harmful content that are broadly defined.

 

Currently, Moyi holds an ICP license which was issued on January 22, 2014.

Online Privacy

 

Chinese law does not prohibit internet service providers from collecting and analyzing personal information from their users if the users agree to do so. The PRC government, however, has the power and authority to order internet service providers to submit personal information of an internet user if such user posts any prohibited content or engages in illegal activities on the internet.

 

Under the Several Provisions on Regulating the Market Order of Internet Information Services (“Order”) promulgated by the MIIT which became effective on March 15, 2012, internet service providers may not, without a user’s consent, collect the user’s personal information that can be used, alone or in combination with other information, to identify the user, and may not provide any user’s personal information to third parties without the prior consent of the user. Internet service providers may only collect users’ personal information necessary to provide their services and must expressly inform the users of the method, scope and purpose of the collection and processing of such information. They are also required to ensure the proper security of users’ personal information, and take immediate remedial measures if such information is suspected to have been inappropriately disclosed. When a User registers to our application, we require our users to accept a user agreement whereby they agree to provide certain personal information to us. We will take other measures as necessary to comply with these provisions.

 

ICPs are also required to establish and publish their rules relating to personal information collection or use, keep any collected information strictly confidential, and take technological and other measures to maintain the security of such information. ICP operators are required to cease any collection or use of the user personal information, and de-register the relevant user account, when a given user stops using the relevant Internet service. ICP operators are further prohibited from divulging, distorting or destroying any such personal information, or selling or providing such information unlawfully to other parties. In addition, if an ICP operator appoints an agent to undertake any marketing and technical services that involve the collection or use of personal information, the ICP operator is still required to supervise and manage the protection of the information. As to penalties, in very broad terms, the Order states that violators may face warnings, fines, and disclosure to the public and, in most severe cases, criminal liability.

 

Currently, our collection of the information from the Users is agreed to by the Users when they sign up. In addition, any data mining or analyzing of the user data is for internal use only. We also take steps to ensure that the data collected is stored securely.

 

Internet Publishing

 

On June 27, 2002, SPPA and MIIT jointly released the Provisional Rules for the Administration of Internet Publishing, or the Internet Publishing Rules, which define “Internet publications” as works that are either selected or edited to be published on the Internet or transmitted to end-users through the Internet for the purposes of browsing, reading, using or downloading by the general public. Such works mainly include content or articles formally published by press media such as: (i) books, newspapers, periodicals, audio-visual products and electronic publications; and (ii) literature, art and articles on natural science, social science, engineering and other topics that have been edited.

 

According to the Internet Publishing Rules, web portals like Moxian are required to apply to and register with GAPP before distributing Internet publications. Moxian plants to apply this license at the beginning of 2017.

 

Online Games

 

On May 10, 2003, the Provisional Regulations for the Administration of Online Culture were issued by the Ministry of Culture (“MCPRC”) and went into effect on July 1, 2003 (these regulations were revised by MCPRC on July 1, 2004). According to these regulations, commercial entities are required to apply to the relevant local branch of MCPRC for an Online Culture Operating Permit to engage in online games services.

 

On July 27, 2004, GAPP and the State Copyright Bureau jointly promulgated the Notice on Carrying out the Decision from the State Council Regarding the Approval of Electronic and Online Games Publications, or the Games Notice. According to the Games Notice, the Internet Publications Distribution License is required for publishing online games.

 

Currently, Moxian holds the appropriate license which was issued by the Administration of Online Culture on November 25, 2015.

Encryption Software

 

On October 7, 1999, the State Encryption Administration Commission published the Regulations for the Administration of Commercial Encryption, followed by the first Notice of the General Office of the State Encryption Administration Commission on November 8, 1999. Both of these regulations address the use of software in China with encryption functions. According to these regulations, purchase of encryption products must be reported. Violation of the encryption regulations may result in a warning, penalty, confiscation of the encryption product, or criminal liabilities.

 

On March 18, 2000, the Office of the State Commission for the Administration of Cryptography issued a public announcement regarding the implementation of those regulations. The announcement clarifies the encryption regulations as below:

 

Only specialized hardware and software, the core functions of which are encryption and decoding, fall within the administrative scope of the regulations as “encryption products and equipment containing encryption technology.” Other products such as wireless telephones, Windows software and browsers do not fall within the scope of this regulation.

 

The PRC government has already begun to study the laws in question in accordance with WTO rules and China’s external commitments, and will make revisions wherever necessary. The Administrative Regulations on Commercial Encryption will also be subject to such scrutiny and revision.

 

In late 2005, the Administration Bureau of Cryptography further issued a series of regulations to regulate the development, production and sales of commercial encryption products, which all came into effect on January 1, 2006.

 

We believe that the Company is in proper compliance with these requirements.

 

Foreign Exchange

 

Foreign exchange regulation in China is primarily governed by the following regulations:

 

Foreign Exchange Administration Rules, or the Exchange Rules of the PRC, promulgated by the State Council on January 29, 1996, which was amended on January 14, 1997 and on August 5, 2008 respectively; and

 

Administration Rules of the Settlement, Sale and Payment of Foreign Exchange, or the Administration Rules promulgated by China People’s Bank on June 20, 1996.

 

Under the Exchange Rules of the PRC, Renminbi is convertible for current account items, including the distribution of dividends, interest payments, trade and service-related foreign exchange transactions. As for capital account items, such as direct investments, loans, security investments and the repatriation of investment returns, however, the reservation or conversion of foreign currency incomes is still subject to the approval of SAFE or its competent local branches; while for the foreign currency payments for capital account items, the SAFE approval is not necessary for the conversion of Renminbi except as otherwise explicitly provided by laws and regulations.

 

Under the Administration Rules, enterprises may only buy, sell or remit foreign currencies at banks that are authorized to conduct foreign exchange business after the enterprise provides valid commercial documents and relevant supporting documents and, in the case of certain capital account transactions, after obtaining approval from SAFE or its competent local branches. Capital investments by enterprises outside of China are also subject to limitations, which include approvals by the SAFE and the National Development and Reform Commission, or their respective competent local branches.

 

On October 21, 2005, SAFE issued the Circular on Several Issues concerning Foreign Exchange Administration for Domestic Residents to Engage in Financing and in Return Investments via Overseas Special Purpose Companies, or Circular No. 75, which went into effect on November 1, 2005. Circular No. 75 provides that if PRC residents use assets or equity interests in their PRC entities to establish offshore companies or inject assets or equity interests of their PRC entities into offshore companies for the purpose of overseas capital financing, they must register with local SAFE branches with respect to their investments in offshore companies. Circular No. 75 also requires PRC residents to file changes to their registration if their special purpose companies undergo material events such as capital increase or decrease, share transfer or exchange, merger or division, long-term equity or debt investments, provision of guaranty to a foreign party, etc. SAFE further promulgated the Implementing Rules for Circular No. 75, or Circular No. 106, clarifying and supplementing the concrete operating rules that shall be followed during the implementation and application of Circular No. 75.

On August 29, 2008, the Notice of the General Affairs Department of the State Administration of Foreign Exchange on the Relevant Operating Issues concerning the Improvement of the Administration of Payment and Settlement of Foreign Currency Capital of Foreign-funded Enterprises, or the Improvement Notice, was promulgated by SAFE. Pursuant to the Improvement Notice, the foreign currency capital of Foreign Investment Entities, after being converted to Renminbi, can only be used for doing business within the business scope approved by relevant governmental authorities, and shall not be used for domestic equity investment except as otherwise explicitly provided by laws and regulations.

 

On July 14, 2014, SAFE issued a new Circular on Several Issues concerning Foreign Exchange Administration for Domestic Residents to Engage in Investing and Financing and in Return Investments via Overseas Special Purpose Companies, or Circular No. 37, which enlarges the definition of SPV comparing to the Circular No. 75, which can invest in China under Circular No. 37. The method of investment include forming a new entity in China and through merging or acquiring a domestic company in China.

 

Hong Kong Law

 

Our website is maintained through a server in Hong Kong.

Non-compliance of such rules in Hong Kong may result in a fines of up to HKD $500,000.

Overview

 

We are in the O2O (“Online-to-Offline”) business. While there are many definitions of O2O, with respect to our business, O2O means providing an online platform for small and medium sized enterprises (“SMEs”) with physical stores to conduct business online, interact with existing customers and obtain new customers. We refer to our customers as “Merchant Clients” and the users of our platform that are their existing and potential customers as “Users.” Through our platform and the products and services offered through it, we seek to create interaction between our Users and Merchant Clients by allowing Merchant Clients to study consumer behavior. Our products and services are designed to allow Merchant Clients to conduct targeted advertising campaigns and promotions which we believe are more effective because they are geared for the customers that a Merchant Client wishes to reach. Our platform is also designed and built to encourage Users to return and obtain new Users, each of which is a potential customer for our Merchant Clients.

 

We believe we are different from other companies in that our plan is to sign up merchants first and build our user base utilizing their customers. Many companies utilize a different strategy of building up a user base and then signing up paying merchants and other clients to access that user base.

 

The current version of our platform is called “Moxian+” which consists of our user mobile application (“App”) called the Moxian+ User App and a separate App for our Merchant Clients called the Moxian+ Business App. Both versions of the App are currently available in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store. There is no charge to download either App. We also have a website that can be accessed at www.moxian.com where either App can also be downloaded.

Moxian principally operates in mainland China with its headquarters in Shenzhen, China. We launched Moxian version 1.0 which only consists of the User component App in Malaysia in June 2013 and subsequently in China in July 2014. During 2014 to 2015, we developed the Apps as part of “Moxian+,” the successor to Moxian version 1.0 which was officially launched in October 2015 in China only. In December 2015, we opened our Beijing office. We are currently operating in both Shenzhen and Beijing.

 

As of September 30, 2016 and 2015, our accumulated deficit was $24,988,796 and $11,174,812, respectively. Our stockholders’ deficit was $10,162 as of September 30, 2016 and our stockholders’ equity was $5,505,091 as of September 30, 2015. We have generated $21,479 and $83,870 in revenue for the years ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively. Our losses have principally been attributed to selling, general administrative, advertising agency fee, impairment charge on intangible assets, depreciation and amortization and research and development expenses.

 

Recent Developments

 

As of December 16, 2015, we entered into a Second Amendment Agreement to the Subscription Agreement (the “Second Amendment Agreement”) with Xinhua Huifeng Investment Center Co., Ltd. (Beijing) (“Xinhua”) to amend the Subscription Agreement entered by the Company and Xinhua (“Xinhua Subscription Agreement”) dated as of June 4, 2015, which was subsequently amended on August 13, 2015. Under the Xinhua Subscription Agreement, the Company agreed to sell an aggregate of 4,095,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock at a per share price of $2.00 for gross proceeds of $8,190,000 (approximately RMB50,000,000) (the “Purchase Price”) and to issue to Xinhua for no additional consideration a warrant (the “Warrant”) to purchase in the aggregate of 16,000,000 shares of Common Stock at an exercise price of $4.00 per share, exercisable on or prior to July 31, 2015 (the “Expiration Date”) (such transaction, the “Transaction”). Under the Second Amendment Agreement, the Closing Date of the Transaction was extended to December 31, 2015 and the Expiration Date of the Warrant was extended to December 31, 2015. As of February 28, 2016, we received $8,190,021 of the Purchase Price, and in turn, issued 4,095,017 shares of common stock to Xinhua. No warrants were exercised by Xinhua and have expired.

 

On May 24, 2016 the Board of Directors approved a reverse stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), at a ratio of 1-for-2 (the “Reverse Stock Split”). The Reverse Stock Split was effective on June 20, 2016 (the “Effective Date”). Simultaneously to the Reverse Stock Split, the number of shares of the Company’s authorized Common Stock was correspondingly reduced from 500,000,000 shares to 250,000,000 shares. On July 11, 2016, the Company received FINRA’s approval of the Reverse Stock Split. The Company has retroactively restated all shares and per share data for all the periods presented.

 

On September 7, 2016, the Company entered into note conversion agreements with Shenzhen Bayi Consulting Co. Ltd. and Moxian China Limited. The note conversion agreements permitted for the conversion of promissory notes in the aggregate amount of $2 million payable by the Company into shares of common stock at the public offering price at $4.00 per share upon the completion of our public offering.

 

On November 14, 2016, the Company announced the completion of a public offering of 2,501,250 shares of its common stock at a public offering price of $4.00 per share. The net proceeds from the offering were approximately $8.5 million after deducting placement agents' commissions and other estimated offering expenses. In connection with the offering, the Company's common stock began trading on the NASDAQ Capital Market on November 15, 2016 under the symbol "MOXC".

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

In assessing the Company’s liquidity, the Company monitors and analyzes its cash and cash equivalents and its operating and capital expenditure commitments. The Company’s liquidity needs are to meet its working capital requirements, operating expenses and capital expenditure obligations. As of September 30, 2016, the Company’s current liabilities exceeded the current assets by approximately $4.9 million including of cash on hand of $76,580 as compared to working capital deficit of approximately $4.1 million including cash on hand of approximately $2.4 million as of September 30, 2015. The Company’s accumulated deficit was approximately $25.0 million and the Company has incurred losses since inception.

 

Net cash used in operating activities for the year ended September 30, 2016 was approximately $7.6 million as compared to net cash used in operating activities of approximately $5.4 million for the year ended September 30, 2015. The increase in cash used in operating activities for year ended September 30, 2016 was mainly due to a significant increase in the net loss because of approximately $0.7 million increases in the advertising agency fee expense and $2.0 million increase in research development and selling and general and administrative expense.

 

Net cash used in investing activities for the year ended September 30, 2016 was approximately $0.5 million as compared to approximately $3.3 million for the year ended September 30, 2015. The increased spending for the year ended September 30, 2015 was because the Company expanded its operations in China and purchased approximately $2.9 million in computer and office equipment, but the related purchase only amounted to approximately $0.3 million for the year ended September 30, 2016.

 

Net cash provided by financing activities for the year ended September 30, 2016 was approximately $5.8 million as compared to approximately $9.2 million for the year ended September 30, 2015. During the year ended September 30, 2015, the Company completed a private placement of approximately $8.2 million, of which approximately $5.5 million was received during the year ended September 30, 2015 and approximately $2.7 million was received by September 30, 2016. During the year ended September 30, 2015, the Company had borrowings from related parties of $3.7 million. During the year ended September 30, 2016, the Company had net borrowings from related parties of $3.1 million.

 

On November 14, 2016, the Company completed an initial public offering (“IPO”) with net proceeds of $8.5 million after deducting placement agents’ commission and other offering costs, which helps the Company’s cash flow in fiscal 2017. The Company expects to increase its revenues through the expansion of its sales force to sell advertisement space in the Xinhua New Media App and Moxian platform and to sign up more Merchant clients to increase the Users to download the Company’s User App. If the revenue does not reach the level anticipated in the Company’s plan, in order to maintain working capital sufficient to support the Company’s operations and finance the future growth of its business, the Company expects to fund any cash flow shortfalls as follows:

 

Financial support commitments from two of the Company’s major stockholders and two of the Company’s related parties; and
   
Issuance of shares for private placement.

 

Based on the above considerations, the Company’s management is of the opinion that it has sufficient funds to meet the Company’s working capital requirements and debt obligations as they become due. However, there is no assurance that management will be successful in their plans. The Company will require additional capital to continue to operate our business, and to further expand our business. Sources of additional capital may come through various financing transactions or arrangements with third parties and may include equity or debt financing, bank loans or revolving credit facilities. If our future capital raising and/or private placements do not reach the level anticipated in our plan, and we are not able to obtain the necessary additional capital on a timely basis, on acceptable terms, or at all, we may be unable to implement its current plans for expansion, repay our debt obligations or respond to competitive pressures, any of which would have a material adverse effect on our business, prospects, financial condition and results of operations. In addition, the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern is dependent upon the success of these actions. There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in accomplishing its objectives. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might be necessary should the Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

 

Foreign Operations

 

Substantially all of our business operations are conducted in Mainland China. Accordingly, our results of operations, financial condition and prospects are subject to a significant degree to economic, political and legal developments in the PRC. We also have operations in Hong Kong. Operating in foreign countries involves substantial risk. For example, our business activities subject us to a number of Chinese laws and regulations, such as anti-corruption laws, tax laws, foreign exchange controls and cash repatriation restrictions, data privacy and security requirements, labor laws, intellectual property laws, privacy laws, and anti-competition regulations, which have uncertainties. Any failure to comply with the PRC laws and regulations could subject us to fines and penalties, make it more difficult or impossible to do business in China and harm our reputation.

 

Operating in foreign countries also subjects us to risk from currency fluctuations. Our primary exposure to movements in foreign currency exchange rates relates to non-U.S. dollar denominated sales and operating expenses. The weakening of foreign currencies relative to the U.S. dollar adversely affects the U.S. dollar value of our foreign currency-denominated sales and earnings. This could either reduce the U.S. dollar value of our prices or, if we raise prices in the local currency, it could reduce the overall demand for our offerings. Either could adversely affect our revenue. Conversely, a rise in the price of local currencies relative to the U.S. dollar could adversely impact our profitability because it would increase our costs denominated in those currencies, thus adversely affecting gross margins.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

 

Fair value of financial instruments

 

The Company follows the provisions of ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures.” ASC 820 clarifies the definition of fair value, prescribes methods for measuring fair value, and establishes a fair value hierarchy to classify the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

 

Level 1-Observable inputs such as unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities available at the measurement date.

 

Level 2-Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable, and inputs derived from or corroborated by observable market data.

 

Level 3-Inputs are unobservable inputs which reflect management’s assumptions based on the best available information.

 

The carrying value of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, prepayment, deposits and other receivables, accruals and other payables, loans from related parties and stock subscription payable approximate their fair values because of the short-term nature of these instruments.

 

Use of estimates

 

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the accompanying consolidated financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates required to be made by management include but not limited to, useful lives of property and equipment, intangible assets valuation, inventory valuation and deferred tax assets. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Deferred offering costs

 

Deferred offering costs consist principally of legal, underwriting and registration costs in connection with the IPO of the Company’s ordinary shares. Such costs are deferred until the closing of the offering, at which time the deferred costs are offset against the offering proceeds.

 

Impairment of long-lived Assets

 

The Company classifies its long-lived assets into: (i) computer and office equipment; (ii) furniture and fixtures, (iii) leasehold improvements, and (iv) finite – lived intangible assets.

 

Long-lived assets held and used by the Company are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of such assets may not be fully recoverable. It is possible that these assets could become impaired as a result of technology, economy or other industry changes. If circumstances require a long-lived asset or asset group to be tested for possible impairment, the Company first compares undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by that asset or asset group to its carrying value. If the carrying value of the long-lived asset or asset group is not recoverable on an undiscounted cash flow basis, an impairment is recognized to the extent that the carrying value exceeds its fair value. Fair value is determined through various valuation techniques, including discounted cash flow models, relief from royalty income approach, quoted market values and third-party independent appraisals, as considered necessary.

 

The Company makes various assumptions and estimates regarding estimated future cash flows and other factors in determining the fair values of the respective assets. The assumptions and estimates used to determine future values and remaining useful lives of long-lived assets are complex and subjective. They can be affected by various factors, including external factors such as industry and economic trends, and internal factors such as the Company’s business strategy and its forecasts for specific market expansion.

 

Revenue recognition 

 

The Company currently recognizes revenue from the sale of merchandise through its online platforms. Revenue is recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; delivery has occurred or services have been rendered; the price is fixed or determinable; and collectability is reasonably assured. Revenue was recorded on a gross basis, net of surcharges and value added tax ("VAT") of gross sales. The Company recorded revenue on a gross basis because the Company has the following indicators for gross reporting: it is the primary obligor of the sales arrangements, is subject to inventory risks of physical loss, has latitude in establishing prices, has discretion in suppliers' selection and assumes credit risks on receivables from customers.

Foreign currency transactions and translation

 

The reporting currency of the Company is United States Dollars (the “USD”) and the functional currency of Moxian Shenzhen, Moyi and Moxian Beijing is Renminbi (the “RMB”) as China is the primary economic environment in which they operate, the functional currency of Moxian HK is Hong Kong Dollar (the “HKD”), and the functional currency of Moxian Malaysia is Malaysia Ringgit (the “MYR”).

 

For financial reporting purposes, the financial statements of Moxian Shenzhen, Moyi, Moxian Beijing, Moxian HK and Moxian Malaysia, which are prepared using their respective functional currencies, are translated into the reporting currency, United States dollar ("U.S. dollar") so to be consolidated with the Company’s. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than the reporting currency are translated into the reporting currency at the rates of exchange ruling at the balance sheet date. Revenues and expenses are translated using average rates prevailing during the reporting period. Adjustments resulting from the translation are recorded as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income in stockholders’ equity (deficit). Transaction gains of $108,710 and $61,730 are recognized in the statements of operations and comprehensive loss for the years ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

Recently Issued Accounting Pronouncements

 

In January 2016, the FASB has issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2016-01, Financial Instruments – Overall (Subtopic 825-10): Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities. The new guidance is intended to improve the recognition and measurement of financial instruments. The new guidance makes targeted improvements to existing U.S. GAAP by: (1) requiring equity investments (except those accounted for under the equity method of accounting, or those that result in consolidation of the investee) to be measured at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in net income. Requiring public business entities to use the exit price notion when measuring the fair value of financial instruments for disclosure purposes; (2) Requiring separate presentation of financial assets and financial liabilities by measurement category and form of financial asset (i.e., securities or loans and receivables) on the balance sheet or the accompanying notes to the financial statements; (3) Eliminating the requirement for public business entities to disclose the method(s) and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value that is required to be disclosed for financial instruments measured at amortized cost on the balance sheet; and. (4) Requiring a reporting organization to present separately in other comprehensive income the portion of the total change in the fair value of a liability resulting from a change in the instrument-specific credit risk (also referred to as “own credit”) when the organization has elected to measure the liability at fair value in accordance with the fair value option for financial instruments. The new guidance is effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is evaluating the effect, if any, of this update on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which supersedes the existing guidance for lease accounting, Leases (Topic 840). ASU 2016-02 requires lessees to recognize leases on their balance sheets, and leaves lessor accounting largely unchanged. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early application is permitted for all entities. ASU 2016-02 requires a modified retrospective approach for all leases existing at, or entered into after, the date of initial application, with an option to elect to use certain transition relief. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In April 2016, the FASB released ASU 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. The ASU includes multiple provisions intended to simplify various aspects of the accounting for share-based payments. While aimed at reducing the cost and complexity of the accounting for share-based payments, the amendments are expected to significantly impact net income, EPS, and the statement of cash flows. Implementation and administration may present challenges for companies with significant share-based payment activities. The ASU is effective for public companies in annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its consolidated financial statements.

In April 2016, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing. The amendments clarify the following two aspects of Topic 606: (a) identifying performance obligations; and (b) the licensing implementation guidance. The amendments do not change the core principle of the guidance in Topic 606. The effective date and transition requirements for the amendments are the same as the effective date and transition requirements in Topic 606. Public entities should apply the amendments for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim reporting periods therein (i.e., January 1, 2018, for a calendar year entity). Early application for public entities is permitted only as of annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim reporting periods within that reporting period. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In May 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-11 Revenue Recognition (Topic 605) and Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815); Rescission of SEC Guidance Because of Accounting Standards Updates 2014-09 and 2014-16 Pursuant to Staff Announcements at the March 3, 2016 EITF Meeting, which is rescinding certain SEC Staff Observer comments that are codified in Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, and Topic 932, Extractive Activities—Oil and Gas, effective upon adoption of Topic 606.  The Company does not expect the adoption of the ASU to have any impact on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In May 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-12—Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606); Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients, which is intended to not change the core principle of the guidance in Topic 606, but rather affect only the narrow aspects of Topic 606 by reducing the potential for diversity in practice at initial application and by reducing the cost and complexity of applying Topic 606 both at transition and on an ongoing basis.  The Company is assessing the impact of the adoption of the ASU on its consolidated financial statements, disclosure requirements and methods of adoption.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, to provide guidance on the presentation and classification of certain cash receipts and cash payments on the statement of cash flows. The guidance specifically addresses cash flow issues with the objective of reducing the diversity in practice. The guidance will be effective for the Company in fiscal year 2018, but early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-17, Consolidation (Topic 810): Interest Held through Related Parties That Are under Common Control, to provide guidance on the evaluation of whether a reporting entity is the primary beneficiary of a VIE by amending how a reporting entity, that is a single decision maker of a VIE, treats indirect interests in that entity held through related parties that are under common control. The amendments are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-18, "Statement of Cash Flows: Restricted Cash". The amendments address diversity in practice that exists in the classification and presentation of changes in restricted cash on the statement of cash flows. The amendment is effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its consolidated financial statements.

ITEM 9A. CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

 

Evaluation of Disclosure Controls and Procedures

 

As of September 30, 2016, our Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”) and Chief Financial Officer (“CFO’) evaluated the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures (as defined in Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e) under the Exchange Act), as of the end of the year covered by this report on Form 10-K. Disclosure controls and procedure include, without limitation, controls and procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed by the Company in the reports that it files or submits under the Exchange Act is accumulated and communicated to the Company’s management as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. Our Management is responsible for monitoring the process pursuant to which information is gathered and analyze such information to determine the extent to which such information requires disclosure in the reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Based on such evaluation, our CEO and CFO have concluded that as of September 30, 2016, the Company’s disclosure controls and procedures were ineffective due to the Company’s lacks of formal documented controls and procedures applicable to all officers and directors to disclose the required information under the Exchange Act. The Company is in the process of adopting formal documented controls and anticipates having them in place by the fiscal year end of 2017. As part of our continuous effort to remediate the identified material weaknesses, we have initiated certain initiatives, including without limitation, appointing outside independent directors and establishing an audit committee, adding financial personnel to our management team and prepare written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting to establish a formal process to close our books monthly on an accrual basis and account for all transactions, including equity and debt transactions.

 

Management's Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

 

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting. Internal control over financial reporting is defined in Rule 13a-15(f) or 15d-15(f) promulgated under the Exchange Act as a process designed by, or under the supervision of, the company’s principal executive and principal financial officers and effected by the company’s board of directors, management and other personnel, to provide reasonable assurance regarding the reliability of financial reporting and the preparation of financial statements for external purposes in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and includes those policies and procedures that:

 

Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of the assets of the company;

 

Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America and that receipts and expenditures of the company are being made only in accordance with authorizations of management and directors of the company; and

 

Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisition, use or disposition of the company’s assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

 

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. 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. All internal control systems, no matter how well designed, have inherent limitations. Therefore, even those systems determined to be effective can provide only reasonable assurance with respect to financial statement preparation and presentation. Because of the inherent limitations of internal control, there is a risk that material misstatements may not be prevented or detected on a timely basis by internal control over financial reporting. However, these inherent limitations are known features of the financial reporting process. Therefore, it is possible to design into the process safeguards to reduce, though not eliminate, this risk.

 

As of September 30, 2016, management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting based on the criteria for effective internal control over financial reporting established in by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission’s 2013 Internal Control Integrated Framework and SEC guidance on conducting such assessments. Based on that evaluation, they concluded that, during the period covered by this report, such internal controls and procedures were not effective to detect the inappropriate application of US GAAP rules. This was due to deficiencies that existed in the design or operation of our internal controls over financial reporting that adversely affected our internal controls and that may be considered to be material weaknesses.

 

Identified Material Weakness

 

A material weakness in internal control over financial reporting is a control deficiency, or combination of control deficiencies, that results in more than a remote likelihood that a material misstatement of the financial statements will not be prevented or detected.

 

 24 
 

Management identified the following material weaknesses during its assessment of internal controls over financial reporting as of September 30, 2016: 

  (1) Lack of qualified full-time U.S. GAAP personnel:

 

  The current staff’s accounting skills and understanding as to how to fulfill the requirements of U.S. GAAP-based reporting, including financial statements consolidation and disclosure, are inadequate.

 

  (2) Ineffective controls over financial reporting and Monitoring:

 

  Lack of documented controls to review and approve accounting transactions and journal adjustments. There is also no established process to ensure proper cut-offs at year-end to ensure that all transactions are accounted for accurately and in a timely manner.

 

  The Company lacks qualified resources to perform the internal audit functions properly and that the scope and effectiveness of the internal audit function are yet to be developed.

 

  (3) Written Policies & Procedures:

 

  Due to lack of written policies and procedures for accounting and financial reporting, the accounting records of certain subsidiary companies and the new agreements with suppliers and customers were not properly managed.
     
   Lack of formal procedures for approving related party transactions.
     
  Lack of documented IT control policies and procedures in place, in particular that relating to security policies and password policies for IT management.
     

As a result of the material weaknesses described above, management has concluded that the Company did not maintain effective internal control over financial reporting as of September 30, 2016 based on criteria established in Internal Control—Integrated Framework issued by COSO (2013 framework). However, management does not believe that any of our annual or interim financial statements issued to date contain a material misstatement as a result of the aforementioned weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting.

Management’s Remediation Initiatives 

In an effort to remediate the identified material weaknesses and other deficiencies and enhance our internal controls, we have initiated, or plan to initiate, the following series of measures:

(1)We created and filled the Chief Financial Officer position on July 25, 2016 who assumes responsibilities, among others, for reviewing and establishing written policies and procedures, with the necessary internal controls, to ensure that accounting records reflect all transactions in an accurate and timely manner and form a reliable basis for the preparation of all financial statements.
   
(2)Plan to engage an IT consultant to help formalize the Company’s policies and procedures on information technology, analyze the capability and reliability of existing systems, and establish an integrated information system development plan.
   
(3)Review and document all key processes of the Company, including ensuring that there are sufficient internal controls at key flow-points; this being an ongoing exercise undertaken by the newly-appointed Chief Financial Officer which will be progressively carried throughout the next fiscal year with the key processes targeted for completion by April 2017.
   
(4)Design and monitor controls over financial reporting, including the introduction of a proper checklist of cut-off procedures to ensure compliance and a proper accounting of accruals and payables.
   
(5)Establish a communication channel between the CFO and the Audit Committee, which will also meet regularly, so that matters of importance are elevated to a higher level.
   
(6)Continue to provide more U.S. GAAP knowledge and SEC reporting requirement training for staff and establish formal policies and procedures as well as engaging an external accounting consultant to help with the accounting and consolidation requirements so that all compliance requirements are met.
   
(7)Implement an ongoing initiative and training in the Company to ensure the importance of internal controls and compliance with established policies and procedures are fully understood throughout the organization.
   
(8)Recruit more accounting staff to ensure that there is adequate segregation of key duties.
   
(9)Establish a process to review all related party transactions to ensure that adequate controls exist to protect the Company’s interest which would include a review by the Audit Committee and the Board of all related party agreements, for which there will be a complete record.

Changes in internal controls over financial reporting

Having regard to the foregoing paragraphs, there have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting that occurred during the period covered by this Report, which has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal controls over financial reporting.

This annual report does not include an attestation report of the Company’s registered independent public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting. Management’s report was not subject to attestation by the Company’s registered independent public accounting firm pursuant to rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit the Company to provide only management’s report in this annual report on Form 10-K.

To our knowledge, based solely upon review of the copies of such reports received or written representations from the reporting persons, we believe that during our 2016 fiscal year, our directors, executive officers and persons who owned more than 10% of our common stock did not comply with Section 16(a) filing requirements, and currently they are in the process of such filings.

ITEM 12. SECURITY OWNERSHIP OF CERTAIN BENEFICIAL OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT AND RELATED STOCKHOLDER MATTERS

 

The following table sets forth, as of December 19, 2016, certain information concerning the beneficial ownership of our common stock by (i) each stockholder known by us to own beneficially five percent or more of our outstanding common stock or series a common stock; (ii) each director; (iii) each named executive officer; and (iv) all of our executive officers and directors as a group, and their percentage ownership and voting power.

 

The information presented below regarding beneficial ownership of our voting securities has been presented in accordance with the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission and is not necessarily indicative of ownership for any other purpose. Under these rules, a person is deemed to be a “beneficial owner” of a security if that person has or shares the power to vote or direct the voting of the security or the power to dispose or direct the disposition of the security. A person is deemed to own beneficially any security as to which such person has the right to acquire sole or shared voting or investment power within sixty (60) days through the conversion or exercise of any convertible security, warrant, option, or other right. More than one (1) person may be deemed to be a beneficial owner of the same securities. The percentage of beneficial ownership by any person as of a particular date is calculated by dividing the number of shares beneficially owned by such person, which includes the number of shares as to which such person has the right to acquire voting or investment power within sixty (60) days, by the sum of the number of shares outstanding as of such date. Consequently, the denominator used for calculating such percentage may be different for each beneficial owner. Except as otherwise indicated below and under applicable community property laws, we believe that the beneficial owners of our common stock listed below have sole voting and investment power with respect to the shares shown.

 

The column entitled “Percentage of Shares Beneficially Owned” is based on a total of 66,507,199 shares of our common stock outstanding as of December 19, 2016.

ITEM 13. CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS, DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE

 

The following is a description of transactions since October 1, 2013, in which the amount involved in the transaction exceeded or will exceed the lesser of $120,000 or one percent of the average of our total assets as at the year-end for the last two completed fiscal years, and to which any of our directors, executive officers or beneficial holders of more than 5% of our capital stock, or any immediate family member of, or person sharing the household with, any of these individuals, had or will have a direct or indirect material interest.

 

Our policy is that a contract or transaction either between the Company and a director, or between a director and another company in which he is financially interested is not necessarily void or void-able if the relationship or interest is disclosed or known to the board of directors and the stockholders are entitled to vote on the issue, or if it is fair and reasonable to our company.

 

Service and Consultancy Agreement with REBL

 

On March 1, 2014, 8i Capital Limited (“8i Capital”), a company incorporated under the laws of the British Virgin Islands, of which our CEO, James Mengdong Tan is a sole member and director, entered into a service and consultancy agreement (the “Consultancy Agreement”) with SCA Capital Limited, a subsidiary of Rebel Group, Inc. (REBL). Under the Consultancy Agreement, 8i Capital agreed to provide corporate service to SCA Capital to assist it with the reverse merger acquisition of a company listed on the OTCQB (“Listco”) and general business advisory service. In consideration, SCA Capital agreed to (i) pay $500,000 in total to 8i Capital, (ii) issue 5% of total shares of the Listco on a fully-diluted basis after the reverse acquisition and (iii) pay a retainer fee of $240,000 to 8i Capital per year. Mr. Tan is deemed as a promoter as defined under Rule 405 of Regulation C promulgated under the Securities Act.

 

In February 2013, Mr. Tan assisted in the negotiation of the acquisition of approximately 77.26% of the then outstanding shares of REBL by three purchasers from the former shareholder of REBL. Mr. Tan also later offered consulting and business advisory services to REBL in connection with REBL’s reverse acquisition of Moxian BVI and its operating business in April 2013. In February 2014, Mr. Tan assisted in structuring the sale of all of the equity interests of Moxian BVI, a former direct subsidiary of REBL, and the license of the intellectual property rights of REBL to the Company pursuant to a License and Acquisition Agreement.

 

On February 21, 2014, we acquired Moxian BVI, together with its subsidiaries, Moxian HK, Moxian Shenzhen, and Moxian Malaysia through our wholly-owned subsidiary, Moxian CN Samoa from REBL, by entering into a License and Acquisition Agreement (the “License and Acquisition Agreement”) in consideration of $1,000,000 (“Moxian BVI Purchase Price”). As a result, Moxian BVI, together with its subsidiaries, Moxian HK, Moxian Shenzhen, and Moxian Malaysia, became our subsidiaries. Under the License and Acquisition Agreement, REBL also agreed to grant us the exclusive right to use REBL’s intellectual property rights (collectively, the “IP Rights”) in Mainland China, Malaysia, and other countries and regions where REBL conducts its business (the “Licensed Territory”), and the exclusive right to solicit, promote, distribute and sell REBL products and services in the Licensed Territory for five years (the “License,”) and in consideration of such License, the Company agreed to pay to REBL (i) $1,000,000 as license maintenance royalty each year commencing on the first anniversary of the date of the License Agreement; and (ii) 3% of the gross profits resulting from the distribution and sale of the products and services on behalf of the Company as an earned royalty.

 

In January 2015, Mr. Tan, through 8i Capital, assisted with the share exchange transaction among REBL, Rebel Holdings Limited, a company incorporated under the laws of the British Virgin Islands and a wholly-owned subsidiary of REBL (“Rebel FC”) and the Rebel FC Stockholder.

 

On January 30, 2015, the Company entered into an Equity Transfer Agreement (the “Equity Transfer Agreement,” such transaction, the “Equity Transfer Transaction”) with REBL, to acquire from REBL 100% of the equity interests of Moxian IP Samoa for $6,782,000 (the “Moxian IP Samoa Purchase Price”). Moxian IP Samoa owns all the intellectual property rights relating to the operation, use and marketing of the Moxian Platform, including all of the trademarks, patents and copyrights that are used in the Company’s business. As a result of the Equity Transfer Transaction, Moxian IP Samoa became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. In addition, under the Equity Transfer Agreement, the Company and REBL agreed to terminate the License and Acquisition Agreement. Immediately prior to the execution of the Equity Transfer Agreement, the Moxian BVI Purchase Price was not yet paid and no license maintenance royalty or earned royalty under the License and Acquisition Agreement had accrued. 8i Capital also provided business advisory service to REBL regarding the Equity Transfer Transaction.

 

The Company agreed to issue to REBL a convertible promissory note for $7,782,000 (the “Rebel Note”), representing the sum of the Moxian IP Samoa Purchase Price and the Moxian BVI Purchase Price. The Rebel Note was due and payable on October 30, 2015 without any interest. The Company had the option to cause REBL to convert any and all amounts due under the Rebel Note into shares of the Company’s Common Stock at the conversion price of $2.00 per share (the “Conversion Price”), if the volume weighted average price (the “VWAP”) of the Company’s Common Stock for a period of 30 trading days immediately prior to the date of conversion was higher than the Conversion Price. The Company also had a right of first refusal to purchase the shares issuable upon conversion of the Rebel Note at the price of 80% of the VWAP for 30 trading days immediately prior to the date of the proposed repurchase by the Company, or at the price of $2.00 per share if such purchase is lower than $2.00.

On August 14, 2015, the VWAP of the Company’s Common Stock for 30 trading days prior to August 14, 2015 was higher than $2.00, which triggered the conversion of the Rebel Note. The Company notified REBL that it elected to cause it to convert $3,891,000 of the Rebel Note into 1,945,500 shares of its Common Stock (the “August Conversion”). As a result of the August Conversion, the remaining amount of the Rebel Note was $3,891,000.

 

On September 30, 2015, the Company notified REBL that it elected to cause it to convert the remainder of the Rebel Note into 1,945,500 shares of the Company’s Common Stock (the “September Conversion”). After the August Conversion and September Conversion, the entire balance of the Rebel Note was converted into total of 3,891,000 shares of the Company’s Common Stock.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

 

To the Board of Directors and Stockholders
Moxian, Inc.

 

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of Moxian, Inc., subsidiaries and affiliate (collectively, the “Company”) as of September 30, 2016, and the related consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss, stockholders’ equity (deficit), and cash flows for the year then ended. The Company’s management is responsible for these consolidated financial statements. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audit.

 

We conducted our audit in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

 

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the Company as of September 30, 2016, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the year then ended, in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

To: The Board of Directors and Shareholders of
        Moxian, Inc.

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheets of Moxian, Inc. and its subsidiaries (collectively, the “Company”) as of September 30, 2015 and 2014, and the related consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income, shareholders’ equity and cash flows for each of the years ended September 30, 2015 and 2014. These consolidated financial statements and schedule are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audit.

We conducted our audits in accordance with standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audits to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the consolidated financial statements are free of material misstatement. The Company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Our audits included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the consolidated financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall consolidated financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of the Company as of September 30, 2015 and 2014, and the results of its operations and comprehensive income, and its cash flows for each of the years ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

As discussed in Note 2 to the accompanying financial statements, the financial statements of the Company for the year ended September 30, 2015 have been restated to correct certain misstatements.

NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

 

  1. Organization and nature of operations

 

Moxian, Inc. (formerly known as Moxian China, Inc., hereinafter referred as “Moxian,” together with its subsidiaries and variable interest entity, the “Company”), was incorporated under the laws of the State of Nevada on October 12, 2010. The Company, through its subsidiaries and variable interest entity, engages in the business of operating a social network platform that integrates social media and business into one single platform. The Company is currently devoting its efforts to develop mobile application and online platform that facilitate the small to medium size businesses to attract more clients. The Company’s ability to generate sufficient funds to meet its working capital requirements is dependent upon its ability to develop additional sources of capital, develop apps and websites, generate servicing income, and ultimately, achieve profitable operations (see Note 2).

 

On February 17, 2014, the Company incorporated Moxian CN Group Limited (“Moxian CN Samoa”) under the laws of Independent State of Samoa.

 

On February 21, 2014, Moxian acquired Moxian Group Limited (“Moxian BVI”), together with its subsidiaries, Moxian (Hong Kong) Limted (“Moxian HK”), Moxian Technology (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. (“Moxian Shenzhen”), and Moxian Malaysia SDN BHD (“Moxian Malaysia”) through our wholly owned subsidiary, Moxian CN Samoa from Rebel Group, Inc. (“REBL”), a company incorporated in the State of Florida and of which our Chief Executive Officer, James Mengdong Tan, is a promoter as the term is defined under Rule 405 of Regulation C promulgated under the Securities Act, by entering into a License and Acquisition Agreement (the “License and Acquisition Agreement”) in consideration of $1,000,000 (“Moxian BVI Purchase Price”).

2.Summary of principal accounting policies

 

Basis of presentation and consolidation

 

The accompanying consolidated financial statements of the Company have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”) and reflect the activities of the following subsidiaries and VIE: Moxian CN Samoa, Moxian BVI, Moxian HK, Moxian Shenzhen, Moxian Malaysia, Moyi, Moxian Beijing and Moxian IP Samoa. All intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated in the consolidation.

 

On May 24, 2016 the Board of approved a reverse stock split of the Company’s issued and outstanding shares of common stock, par value $0.001 per share (the “Common Stock”), at a ratio of 1-for-2 (the “Reverse Stock Split”). The Reverse Stock Split was effective on June 20, 2016 (the “Effective Date”). Simultaneously to the Reverse Stock Split, the number of shares of the Company’s authorized Common Stock was correspondingly reduced from 500,000,000 shares to 250,000,000 shares without changes in par value per share. The Company has retroactively restated all shares and per share data for all the periods presented.

 

In accordance with U.S. GAAP, variable interest entities (“VIEs”) are generally entities that lack sufficient equity to finance their activities without additional financial support from other parties or whose equity holders lack adequate decision making ability. All VIEs with which the Company is involved must be evaluated to determine the primary beneficiary of the risks and rewards of the VIE. The primary beneficiary is required to consolidate the VIE for financial reporting purposes.

 

Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) 810-10 “Consolidation” addresses whether certain types of entities referred to as VIEs, should be consolidated in a company’s consolidated financial statements. Pursuant to an Exclusive Business Cooperation Agreement by and between Moxian Shenzhen and Moyi, dated July 15, 2014, Moxian Shenzhen has the exclusive right to provide to Moyi technical and systems support, marketing consulting services, training for technical personnel and technical consulting services. As payment for these services, Moyi has agreed to pay Moxian Shenzhen a service fee equal to 100% Moyi’s pre-tax profit. In addition, Moxian Shenzhen will also absorb losses from Moyi, if any, based on the service agreement. In accordance with the provisions of ASC 810, the Company has determined that Moyi is a VIE of Moxian Shenzhen and that the Company is the primary beneficiary, and accordingly, the financial statements of Moyi are consolidated into the financial statements of the Company.

 

Reclassification

 

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current year presentation.

 

Liquidity and Capital Resources

 

In assessing the Company’s liquidity, the Company monitors and analyzes its cash and cash equivalents and its operating and capital expenditure commitments. The Company’s liquidity needs are to meet its working capital requirements, operating expenses and capital expenditure obligations. As of September 30, 2016, the Company’s current liabilities exceeded the current assets by approximately $4.9 million, its accumulated deficit was approximately $25.0 million and the Company has incurred losses since inception.

 

On November 14, 2016, the Company completed an initial public offering (“IPO”) with net proceeds of $8.5 million after deducting placement agents’ commission and other offering costs, which helps the Company’s cash flow in fiscal 2017. The Company expects to increase its revenues through the expansion of its sales force to sell advertisement space in the Xinhua New Media App and Moxian platform and to sign up more Merchant clients to increase the Users to download the Company’s User App. If the revenue does not reach the level anticipated in the Company’s plan, in order to maintain working capital sufficient to support the Company’s operations and finance the future growth of its business, the Company expects to fund any cash flow shortfalls as follows:

 

Financial support commitments from two of the Company’s major stockholders and two of the Company’s related parties; and
   
Issuance of shares for private placement.

 

Based on the above considerations, the Company’s management is of the opinion that it has sufficient funds to meet the Company’s working capital requirements and debt obligations as they become due. However, there is no assurance that management will be successful in their plans.

2.Summary of principal accounting policies (continued)

 

Risks and Uncertainties

 

The Company’s operations are substantially carried out in the PRC. Accordingly, the Company’s business, financial condition and results of operations maybe substantially influenced by the political, economic and legal environments in the PRC, and by the general state of the PRC’s economy. The Company’s operations in the PRC are subject to specific considerations and significant risks not typically associated with companies in North America and Western Europe. These include risks associated with, among others, the political, economic and legal environments and foreign currency exchange. The Company’s results may be adversely affected by changes in governmental policies with respect to laws and regulations, anti-inflationary measures, currency conversion and remittance abroad, and rates and methods of taxation, among other things.

 

Fair value of financial instruments

 

The Company follows the provisions of ASC 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures.” ASC 820 clarifies the definition of fair value, prescribes methods for measuring fair value, and establishes a fair value hierarchy to classify the inputs used in measuring fair value as follows:

 

Level 1-Observable inputs such as unadjusted quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities available at the measurement date.

 

Level 2-Inputs other than quoted prices that are observable for the asset or liability in active markets, quoted prices for identical or similar assets and liabilities in markets that are not active, inputs other than quoted prices that are observable, and inputs derived from or corroborated by observable market data.

 

Level 3-Inputs are unobservable inputs which reflect management’s assumptions based on the best available information.

 

The carrying value of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, prepayment, deposits and other receivables, accruals and other payables, loans from related parties and stock subscription payable approximate their fair values because of the short-term nature of these instruments.

 

Use of estimates

 

The preparation of the consolidated financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosures of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the accompanying consolidated financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates required to be made by management include but not limited to, useful lives of property and equipment, intangible assets valuation, inventory valuation and deferred tax assets. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

 

Cash and cash equivalents

 

The Company considers all short-term highly liquid investments that are readily convertible to known amounts of cash and have original maturities of three months or less to be cash equivalents.. As of September 30, 2016 and 2015, substantially all of the Company’s cash and cash equivalents were deposited in financial institutions located in the PRC. To limit exposure to credit risk relating to bank deposits, the Company primarily places bank deposits with large financial institutions in the PRC with acceptable credit rating.

 

Restricted cash

 

The Company is required to maintain certain deposits with credit card institutions for advances. These balances are subject to withdrawal restrictions and totaled $65,590 and Nil as of September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

 

Inventories

 

Inventories consist of merchandise and are stated at the lower of cost or market value, and cost is calculated on the moving weighted average basis. The cost of inventories comprises all costs of purchases and other costs incurred in bringing the inventories to their present condition. As of September 30, 2016 and 2015, there was no lower of cost or market adjustment because the carrying value of the Company’s inventories was lower than the current and expected market price.

2.Summary of principal accounting policies (continued)

 

Prepayments, deposits and other receivables

Prepayments and deposits represent amounts advanced to suppliers. The suppliers usually require advance payments or deposits when the Company makes purchase or orders service and the prepayments and deposits will be utilized to offset the Company’s future payments. Other receivables mainly consist of various cash advances to employees for business needs. These amounts are unsecured, non-interest bearing and generally short-term in nature.

 

Allowances are recorded when utilization and collection of amounts due are in doubt. Delinquent prepayments, deposits and other receivables are written-off after management has determined that the likelihood of utilization or collection is not probable and known bad debts are written off against the allowances when identified.

 

Deferred offering costs

 

Deferred offering costs consist principally of legal, underwriting and registration costs in connection with the IPO of the Company’s ordinary shares. Such costs are deferred until the closing of the offering, at which time the deferred costs are offset against the offering proceeds.

 

Property and Equipment, net

 

Property and equipment are recorded at cost less accumulated depreciation and amortization. Significant additions or improvements extending useful lives of assets are capitalized. Maintenance and repairs are charged to expense as incurred. Depreciation and amortization are computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives as follows:

 

  Electronic equipment 3-6 years
  Furniture and fixtures 3-6 years
  Leasehold improvements Shorter of estimated useful life or term of lease

 

Intangible assets, net

 

Intangible assets, comprising Intellectual property rights (“IP rights”) and software, which are separable from property and equipment, are stated at cost less accumulated amortization. Amortization is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of 3- 10 years.

 

Impairment of long-lived Assets

 

The Company classifies its long-lived assets into: (i) computer and office equipment; (ii) furniture and fixtures, (iii) leasehold improvements, and (iv) finite – lived intangible assets.

 

Long-lived assets held and used by the Company are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value of such assets may not be fully recoverable. It is possible that these assets could become impaired as a result of technology, economy or other industry changes. If circumstances require a long-lived asset or asset group to be tested for possible impairment, the Company first compares undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated by that asset or asset group to its carrying value. If the carrying value of the long-lived asset or asset group is not recoverable on an undiscounted cash flow basis, an impairment is recognized to the extent that the carrying value exceeds its fair value. Fair value is determined through various valuation techniques, including discounted cash flow models, relief from royalty income approach, quoted market values and third-party independent appraisals, as considered necessary.

 

The Company makes various assumptions and estimates regarding estimated future cash flows and other factors in determining the fair values of the respective assets. The assumptions and estimates used to determine future values and remaining useful lives of long-lived assets are complex and subjective. They can be affected by various factors, including external factors such as industry and economic trends, and internal factors such as the Company’s business strategy and its forecasts for specific market expansion.

Revenue recognition 

 

The Company currently recognizes revenue from the sale of merchandise through its online platforms. Revenue is recognized when persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists; delivery has occurred or services have been rendered; the price is fixed or determinable; and collectability is reasonably assured. Revenue was recorded on a gross basis, net of surcharges and value added tax ("VAT") of gross sales. The Company recorded revenue on a gross basis because the Company has the following indicators for gross reporting: it is the primary obligor of the sales arrangements, is subject to inventory risks of physical loss, has latitude in establishing prices, has discretion in suppliers' selection and assumes credit risks on receivables from customers.

 

Income taxes

 

The Company utilizes ASC Topic 740 (“ASC 740”) “Income taxes”, which requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the consolidated financial statements or tax returns. Under this method, deferred income taxes are recognized for the tax consequences in future years of differences between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their financial reporting amounts at each period end based on enacted tax laws and statutory tax rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

 

ASC 740 “Income taxes” clarifies the accounting for uncertainty in tax positions. This interpretation requires that an entity recognizes in the financial statements the impact of a tax position, if that position is more likely than not of being sustained upon examination, based on the technical merits of the position. Recognized income tax positions are measured at the largest amount that is greater than 50% likely of being realized. Changes in recognition or measurement are reflected in the period in which the change in judgment occurs. The Company has elected to classify interest and penalties related to unrecognized tax benefits, if and when required, as part of income tax expense in the consolidated statements of operations.  The Company evaluate the level of authority for each uncertain tax position (including the potential application of interest and penalties) based on the technical merits, and measure the unrecognized benefits associated with the tax positions. As of September 30, 2016 and 2015, the Company did not have any unrecognized tax benefits. The Company does not anticipate any significant increase to its liability for unrecognized tax benefit within the next 12 months.

 

Foreign currency transactions and translation

 

The reporting currency of the Company is United States Dollars (the “USD”) and the functional currency of Moxian Shenzhen, Moyi and Moxian Beijing is Renminbi (the “RMB”) as China is the primary economic environment in which they operate, the functional currency of Moxian HK is Hong Kong Dollar (the “HKD”), and the functional currency of Moxian Malaysia is Malaysia Ringgit (the “MYR”).

 

For financial reporting purposes, the financial statements of Moxian Shenzhen, Moyi, Moxian Beijing, Moxian HK and Moxian Malaysia, which are prepared using their respective functional currencies, are translated into the reporting currency, United States dollar ("U.S. dollar") so to be consolidated with the Company’s. Monetary assets and liabilities denominated in currencies other than the reporting currency are translated into the reporting currency at the rates of exchange ruling at the balance sheet date. Revenues and expenses are translated using average rates prevailing during the reporting period. Adjustments resulting from the translation are recorded as a separate component of accumulated other comprehensive income in stockholders’ equity (deficit). Transaction gains of $108,710 and $61,730 are recognized in the statements of operations and comprehensive income for the years ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, respectively.

 

The exchange rates applied are as follows:

 

  Balance sheet items, except for equity accounts  September 30,

Research and Development

 

Research and development expenses include payroll, employee benefits, stock-based compensation expense, and other related expenses associated with product development. Research and development expenses also include third-party development, programming costs, and localization costs incurred to translate software for local markets. Such costs related to software development are included in research and development expense until the point that technological feasibility is reached. Once technological feasibility is reached, such costs are capitalized and amortized to the cost of revenue over the estimated lives of the products.

 

Earnings (loss) per share

 

Basic (loss) earnings per share is based on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding during the period while the effects of potential common shares outstanding during the period are included in diluted earnings per share.  

 

FASB Accounting Standard Codification Topic 260 (“ASC 260”), “Earnings Per Share,” requires that employee equity share options, non-vested shares and similar equity instruments granted to employees be treated as potential common shares in computing diluted earnings per share. Diluted earnings per share should be based on the actual number of options or shares granted and not yet forfeited, unless doing so would be anti-dilutive. The Company uses the “treasury stock” method for equity instruments granted in share-based payment transactions provided in ASC 260 to determine diluted earnings per share. Antidilutive securities represent potentially dilutive securities which are excluded from the computation of diluted earnings or loss per share as their impact was antidilutive. Due to the Company’s net loss for the years ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, the basic and diluted losses per share are same for the years ended September 30, 2016 and 2015.

 

Recent accounting pronouncements

 

In January 2016, the FASB has issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2016-01, Financial Instruments – Overall (Subtopic 825-10): Recognition and Measurement of Financial Assets and Financial Liabilities. The new guidance is intended to improve the recognition and measurement of financial instruments. The new guidance makes targeted improvements to existing U.S. GAAP by: (1) requiring equity investments (except those accounted for under the equity method of accounting, or those that result in consolidation of the investee) to be measured at fair value with changes in fair value recognized in net income. Requiring public business entities to use the exit price notion when measuring the fair value of financial instruments for disclosure purposes; (2) Requiring separate presentation of financial assets and financial liabilities by measurement category and form of financial asset (i.e., securities or loans and receivables) on the balance sheet or the accompanying notes to the financial statements; (3) Eliminating the requirement for public business entities to disclose the method(s) and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value that is required to be disclosed for financial instruments measured at amortized cost on the balance sheet; and. (4) Requiring a reporting organization to present separately in other comprehensive income the portion of the total change in the fair value of a liability resulting from a change in the instrument-specific credit risk (also referred to as “own credit”) when the organization has elected to measure the liability at fair value in accordance with the fair value option for financial instruments. The new guidance is effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is evaluating the effect, if any, of this update on the Company's consolidated financial position, results of operations and cash flows.

 

In February 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-02, Leases (Topic 842), which supersedes the existing guidance for lease accounting, Leases (Topic 840). ASU 2016-02 requires lessees to recognize leases on their balance sheets, and leaves lessor accounting largely unchanged. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2018 and interim periods within those fiscal years. Early application is permitted for all entities. ASU 2016-02 requires a modified retrospective approach for all leases existing at, or entered into after, the date of initial application, with an option to elect to use certain transition relief. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In April 2016, the FASB released ASU 2016-09, Compensation - Stock Compensation (Topic 718): Improvements to Employee Share-Based Payment Accounting. The ASU includes multiple provisions intended to simplify various aspects of the accounting for share-based payments. While aimed at reducing the cost and complexity of the accounting for share-based payments, the amendments are expected to significantly impact net income, EPS, and the statement of cash flows. Implementation and administration may present challenges for companies with significant share-based payment activities. The ASU is effective for public companies in annual periods beginning after December 15, 2016, and interim periods within those years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its consolidated financial statements.

Recent accounting pronouncements (continued)

 

In April 2016, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update No. 2016-10, Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Identifying Performance Obligations and Licensing. The amendments clarify the following two aspects of Topic 606: (a) identifying performance obligations; and (b) the licensing implementation guidance. The amendments do not change the core principle of the guidance in Topic 606. The effective date and transition requirements for the amendments are the same as the effective date and transition requirements in Topic 606. Public entities should apply the amendments for annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim reporting periods therein (i.e., January 1, 2018, for a calendar year entity). Early application for public entities is permitted only as of annual reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim reporting periods within that reporting period. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In May 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-11 Revenue Recognition (Topic 605) and Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815); Rescission of SEC Guidance Because of Accounting Standards Updates 2014-09 and 2014-16 Pursuant to Staff Announcements at the March 3, 2016 EITF Meeting, which is rescinding certain SEC Staff Observer comments that are codified in Topic 605, Revenue Recognition, and Topic 932, Extractive Activities—Oil and Gas, effective upon adoption of Topic 606.  The Company does not expect the adoption of the ASU to have any impact on its consolidated financial statements.

 

In May 2016, FASB issued ASU No. 2016-12—Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606); Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients, which is intended to not change the core principle of the guidance in Topic 606, but rather affect only the narrow aspects of Topic 606 by reducing the potential for diversity in practice at initial application and by reducing the cost and complexity of applying Topic 606 both at transition and on an ongoing basis.  The Company is assessing the impact of the adoption of the ASU on its consolidated financial statements, disclosure requirements and methods of adoption.

 

In August 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments, to provide guidance on the presentation and classification of certain cash receipts and cash payments on the statement of cash flows. The guidance specifically addresses cash flow issues with the objective of reducing the diversity in practice. The guidance will be effective for the Company in fiscal year 2018, but early adoption is permitted. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In October 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-17, Consolidation (Topic 810): Interest Held through Related Parties That Are under Common Control, to provide guidance on the evaluation of whether a reporting entity is the primary beneficiary of a VIE by amending how a reporting entity, that is a single decision maker of a VIE, treats indirect interests in that entity held through related parties that are under common control. The amendments are effective for public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016, including interim periods within those fiscal years. Early adoption is permitted, including adoption in an interim period. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its consolidated financial statements and related disclosures.

 

In November 2016, the FASB issued ASU No. 2016-18, "Statement of Cash Flows: Restricted Cash". The amendments address diversity in practice that exists in the classification and presentation of changes in restricted cash on the statement of cash flows. The amendment is effective for public companies for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, including interim periods within those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this new standard on its consolidated financial statements.

   September 30,
2015
 
           
  IP rights  $3,460,335   $6,782,000

  Net intangible assets  $3,311,293   $6,600,285 

 

No significant residual value is estimated for these intangible assets. Amortization expense for the years ended September 30, 2016 and 2015 totaled $993,270 and $536,470, respectively. For the years ended September 30, 2016 and 2015, the Company recorded impairment charge of $3,321,665 and $Nil on the intangible – IP rights, respectively.

 

For the year ended September 30, 2016, the Company determined that sufficient indicators of potential impairment existed, which require an intangible assets-IP rights impairment analysis as a result of reduction of revenue and negative working capital. Based on the results of the assessment, the Company determined that the carrying value of the intangible asset – IP rights was not fully recoverable, and an impairment charge was recorded to the extent that estimated fair value exceeded carrying value. The Company primarily used a relief from royalty income approach to determine the fair value of the intangible assets – IP rights. The relief from royalty income model incorporated projected cash flows over a forecast period based on the remaining estimated lives of the IP rights. This was based on a number of key assumptions, including, but not limited to, a discount rate of 21% and the annual revenue projections based on the projected levels of merchant participation during the forecast periods, all of which were classified as Level 3 in the fair value hierarchy.  As a result, the Company recorded an impairment charge of $3,321,665 on definite-lived intangible assets - IP rights for the year ended September 30, 2016.
