Cautionary Note Regarding Forward-Looking Information and Factors That May Affect Future Results

This report contains forward-looking statements. The Securities and Exchange Commission encourages companies to disclose forward-looking information so that investors can better understand a company's future prospects and make informed investment decisions. This report and other written and oral statements that we make from time to time contain such forward-looking statements that set out anticipated results based on management's plans and assumptions regarding future events or performance. We have tried, wherever possible, to identify such statements by using words such as "anticipate," "estimate," "expect," "project," "intend," "plan," "believe," "will" and similar expressions in connection with any discussion of future operating or financial performance. In particular, these include statements relating to future actions, future performance or results of current and anticipated sales efforts, expenses, the outcome of contingencies, such as legal proceedings, and financial results. A list of factors that could cause our actual results of operations and financial condition to differ materially is set forth below, and these factors are discussed in greater detail under Item 1A - "Risk Factors" in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year 2016 and our subsequent filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission:
 
 
-
 
Our ability to continue as a going concern.
 
-
 
Continued global economic weakness is expected to reduce demand for our products in each of our segments.
 
-
 
Our ability to implement our expansion plans for growing our business through acquisitions and development of our commodity trading business.
 
-
 
Loss of orders from any of our major customers.
  
-
 
The value of the equity securities we accept as compensation is subject to adjustment which could result in losses to us in future periods.
 
-
 
Our need for additional financing which we may not be able to obtain on acceptable terms, the dilutive effect additional capital raising efforts in future periods may have on our current shareholders and the increased interest expense in future periods related to additional debt financing.
 
-
 
Our dependence on certain key personnel.
 
-
 
Difficulties we have in establishing adequate management, cash, legal and financial controls in the PRC.
 
-
 
Our ability to maintain an effective system of internal control over financial reporting.
 
-
 
The lack various legal protections in certain agreements to which we are a party and which are material to our operations which are customarily contained in similar contracts prepared in the United States.
 
-
 
Potential impact of PRC regulations on our intercompany loans.
 
-
 
Our ability to assure that related party transactions are fair to our company and possible violations of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.
 
-
 
The scope of our related party transactions and potential conflicts of interest arising from these transactions.
 
-
 
Our ability to comply with the United States Foreign Corrupt Practices Act which could subject us to penalties and other adverse consequences.
 
-
 
Limits under the Investment Company Act of 1940 on the value of securities we can accept as payment for our business consulting services.
 
-
 
Our acquisition efforts in future periods may be dilutive to our then current shareholders.
 
-
 
Our inability to enforce our rights due to policies regarding the regulation of foreign investments in the PRC.
 
-
 
The impact of environmental and safety regulations, which may increase our compliance costs and reduce our overall profitability.
 
-
 
The effect of changes resulting from the political and economic policies of the Chinese government on our assets and operations located in the PRC.
 
-
 
The impact of Chinese economic reform policies.
 
-
 
The influence of the Chinese government over the manner in which our Chinese subsidiaries must conduct our business activities.
 
-
 
The impact on future inflation in the PRC on economic activity in the PRC.
 
-
 
The impact of any natural disasters and health epidemics in China.
 
-
 
The impact of labor laws in the PRC may adversely affect our results of operations.
 
-
 
The limitation on our ability to receive and use our revenues effectively as a result of restrictions on currency exchange in the PRC.
 
-
 
Fluctuations in the value of the RMB may have a material adverse effect on your investment.
 
-
 
The market price for shares of our common stock has been and may continue to be highly volatile and subject to wide fluctuations and the impact of penny stock rules on the liquidity of our common stock.

We caution that the factors described herein and other factors could cause our actual results of operations and financial condition to differ materially from those expressed in any forward-looking statements we make and that investors should not place undue reliance on any such forward-looking statements. Further, any forward-looking statement speaks only as of the date on which such statement is made, and we undertake no obligation to update any forward-looking statement to reflect events or circumstances after the date on which such statement is made or to reflect the occurrence of anticipated or unanticipated events or circumstances. New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for us to predict all of such factors. Further, we cannot assess the impact of each such factor on our results of operations or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements.

NOTE 1 - BASIS OF PRESENTATION AND SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Business and Organization

CD International Enterprises, Inc. ("CDII"), a Florida corporation and its subsidiaries are referred to in this report as "we", "us", "our", "Company" or "CD International".

We are a U.S. based company that sources and distributes industrial products in China and the Americas.  We also provide business and management consulting services to public and private American and Chinese businesses.  We operate in two identifiable segments, as defined by the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 280, "Segment Reporting": Trading and Consulting. Beginning in 2006, we established our Consulting and Mineral Trading segments which grew through acquisitions of controlling interests in Chinese private companies. We consolidate these acquisitions as either wholly or majority owned subsidiaries.  

In our Trading segment, we source and distribute industrial commodities from North and South America for ultimate distribution in China. In our Consulting segment, we provide business and management consulting services to U.S. public companies that operate primarily in China. The consulting fees we charge vary based upon the scope of the services.

The scope of our Trading segment include purchasing, brokering, quality control, in addition to conducting comprehensive legal, financial, and technical due diligence on suppliers. In order to fulfill a niche market and facilitate smooth transactions, we have strategically placed ourselves between our suppliers in both North and South America and our buyers in China. We continue to strengthen our sources of supply and distribution networks by sourcing materials from independent producers in various regions of North and South America to help meet the growing demands of our customers in China.

Our Trading segment engages in the sourcing of the global purchase and sale of industrial commodities in the Americas, which include Cannabidiol (CBD)-related products, oil-related products, mineral ores and non-ferrous metals. In our Trading segment, our primary business focus was sourcing and distributing a variety of Cannabidiol-related products, oil-related products, industrial commodities such as iron ore and copper concentrate. We have focused on the South American market and have established offices in Chile, Peru and Bolivia, but the operation costs were very high and, given the continuing drop of the iron ore market price and other mineral market price, we suspended operations in Chile and Peru on September 30, 2014. In fiscal year 2014, we delivered copper concentrate from Chile and Bolivia to China. In order to fulfill a niche market and facilitate smooth transactions, we have been strategically placing ourselves between our suppliers in South America and our buyers in China. Currently, we are working on expanding our trading business in South America and also looking into various business opportunities with local companies that have good business in South America and Asia.
 
The scope of our Consulting segment is to offer a comprehensive suite of services tailored to meet the needs of each individual client. A significant component of our competitive advantage lies in the quality of our personnel. Members of our team possess a working knowledge of the unique characteristics of business operations in the Americas and China. Our function is to provide the necessary resources for Chinese entities to invest in the Americas or oversea clients to invest in China.

In our Consulting segment, we operate under our wholly owned subsidiaries named China Direct Investments, Inc. and CDI Shanghai Management which provide a suite of consulting services to American and Chinese companies that operate primarily in China and the Americas. We currently have service contracts with clients who conduct business in China or seek to conduct business within China. We generate revenues by providing consulting services in the areas of capital structures and arrangements, mergers, acquisitions and other business transactions, identifying potential areas of growth, translation services, managing and coordinating all necessary government approvals and licenses in the PRC, marketing services and coordination of the preparation of required SEC filings.

Basis of Presentation

We have defined various periods that are covered in this report as follows:

 
-
"fiscal year 2017" - October 1, 2016 through September 30, 2017
 
-
"fiscal year 2016" - October 1, 2015 through September 30, 2016
 
-
"fiscal year 2015" - October 1, 2014 through September 30, 2015

 The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and its majority owned subsidiaries. All intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in the consolidation. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in conjunction with generally accepted accounting principles have been condensed or omitted as permitted by the rules and regulations of the United States Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"), although the Company believes that the disclosures contained in this report are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. The consolidated balance sheet information as of September 30, 2016 was derived from the consolidated audited financial statements included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2016. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the annual consolidated audited financial statements and the notes thereto included in the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2016, and other reports filed with the SEC.

The accompanying unaudited interim consolidated financial statements reflect all adjustments of a normal and recurring nature which are, in the opinion of management, necessary to present fairly the financial position, results of operations and cash flows of the Company for the interim periods presented. The results of operations for these periods are not necessarily comparable to, or indicative of, results of any other interim period or for the fiscal year taken as a whole.

In April 2016, the Company ceased the operations and abandoned Capital Resource Management Co., Ltd. ("Capital Resource Management"), an entity in the Consulting segment. We reclassified the operational loss of Capital Resource Management as discontinued operational loss for the three and six months ended March 31, 2016.

Going Concern

For the three and six months ended March 31, 2017, the Company incurred a net loss from continuing operations of approximately $3.6 million and $7.0 million, respectively. These loss were mainly related to the loss from changes in fair value of derivative liabilities. As of March 31, 2017, the Company also has a working capital deficit of $27.8 million. In addition, the Company has a significant amount of short term loans and convertible notes payable, totaling $1.9 million from unrelated parties, which requires the Company to secure additional funds given the Company's current cash position. The Company's cash and cash equivalent and revenues are not currently sufficient and cannot be projected to cover operating expenses in the coming year. These factors raise substantial doubt as to the ability of the Company to continue as a going concern.  Management's plans include attempting to raise funds through debt and equity financings and restructuring on-going operations to eliminate inefficiencies to meet operating needs. There is no assurance that management's plans will be successful. The consolidated financial statements do not include any adjustments that might result from the outcome of this uncertainty.

Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Use of Estimates

The preparation of 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 disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the consolidated financial statements and the reported amounts of consolidated revenue and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates include the valuation of investments available-for-sale, the allowance for doubtful accounts, the fair value of stock based compensation, the useful life and impairment of property, plant and equipment, and the valuation of derivative liability.

We rely on assumptions such as volatility, forfeiture rate, and expected dividend yield when deriving the grant date fair value of share based compensation as well as the valuation of derivative liability. If an equity award is modified, and we expect the service conditions of the original award will be met, we will adjust our assumptions and estimates as of the modification date and compare the old equity award valued at the modification date with the new equity award valued at the modification date to calculate any incremental cost. We then continue to recognize the original grant date fair value plus any incremental cost over the modified service period.
 
Our estimate for allowance for uncollectible accounts is based on an evaluation of our outstanding accounts receivable, other receivables, and loans receivable including the aging of amounts due, the financial condition of our specific customers and clients, knowledge of our industry segment in Asia, and historical bad debt experience. This evaluation methodology has proven to provide a reasonable estimate of bad debt expense in the past and we intend to continue to employ this approach in our analysis of collectability. However, we are aware that given the current global economic situation, including that of China, meaningful time horizons may change. We intend to enhance our focus on the evaluation of our customers' sustainability and adjust our estimates as may be required.
 
Assumptions and estimates employed in these areas are material to our reported financial condition and results of operations. Actual results could differ from these estimates.
 
Concentration of Credit Risks

Financial instruments which potentially subject us to concentrations of credit risk consist principally of cash and trade accounts receivable. We deposit our cash with high credit quality financial institutions in the United States and China.  As of March 31, 2017, we had no bank deposits in the United States that exceeded federally insured limits.  At March 31, 2017, we had deposits of $1,932 in banks in China. In China, there is no equivalent federal deposit insurance as in the United States, so the amounts held in banks in China are not insured. We have not experienced any losses in such bank accounts through March 31, 2017.

At March 31, 2017 and September 30, 2016, bank deposits by geographic area were as follows:

In an effort to mitigate any potential risk, we periodically evaluate the credit quality of the financial institutions at which we hold deposits, both in the United States and China.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

We adopted the provisions of ASC Topic 820, "Fair Value Measurements".  These provisions relate to our consolidated financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value and our fair value disclosures related to financial assets and liabilities.  ASC Topic 820 defines fair value, expands related disclosure requirements and specifies a hierarchy of valuation techniques based on the nature of the inputs used to develop the fair value measurements. Fair value is defined as the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. There are three levels of inputs to fair value measurements below:

 
- 6 -

 
 
CD INTERNATIONAL ENTERPRISES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
March 31, 2017
 
 - Level 1, meaning the use of quoted prices for identical instruments in active markets;
 - Level 2, meaning the use of quoted prices for similar instruments in active markets or quoted prices for identical or similar instruments in markets that are not active or are directly or indirectly observable;
 - Level 3, meaning the use of unobservable inputs. Observable market data should be used when available.

The carrying amounts of the Company's financial instruments, such as cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, prepaid expenses and other current assets, accounts payable and accrued expenses, advances from customers, and other current liabilities approximate their fair value due to the short term maturities of these instruments.

The Company's loans payable approximate the fair value of such instruments based upon management's best estimate of interest rates that would be available to the Company for similar financial arrangements at March 31, 2017 and September 30, 2016.

Transactions involving related parties cannot be presumed to be carried out on an arm's-length basis, as the requisite conditions of competitive, free-market dealings may not exist. Representations about transactions with related parties, if made, shall not imply that the related party transactions were consummated on terms equivalent to those that prevail in arm's-length transactions unless such representations can be substantiated. It is not, however, practical to determine the fair value of amounts due from/to related parties due to their related party nature.

Recurring Fair Value Measurements

The Company uses Level 1 of the fair value hierarchy to measure the fair value of marketable securities and marks the marketable securities available-for-sale at fair value in the statement of financial position at each balance sheet date and reports the unrealized holding gains and losses for marketable securities available-for-sale in other comprehensive income (loss) until realized provided the unrealized holding gains and losses is temporary. If the fair value of investment in marketable securities available-for-sale is less than its cost basis at the balance sheet date of the reporting period for which impairment is assessed, and it is determined that the impairment is other than temporary, then an impairment loss is recognized in earnings equal to the entire difference between the investment's cost and its fair value at the balance sheet date of the reporting period.

The Company uses Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy to measure the fair value of its derivative liabilities and revalues the derivative liabilities at every reporting period and recognizes gains or losses in the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss that are attributable to the change in the fair value of derivative liabilities.
 
The financial assets and liabilities carried at fair value on a recurring basis at March 31, 2017 are as follows:

Marketable Securities

Marketable securities that we receive from our clients as compensation are generally restricted for sale under Federal securities laws. Our policy is to liquidate securities received as compensation when market conditions are favorable for sale. Since these securities are often restricted, we are unable to liquidate them until the restriction is removed. Pursuant to ASC Topic 320, "Investments -Debt and Equity Securities" our marketable securities have a readily determinable quoted price, such as from NASDAQ, NYSE Euronext, the Over the Counter Bulletin Board, and the OTC Markets Group (formerly known as the Pink Sheets) and any unrealized gain or loss is recognized as an element of comprehensive income or loss based on changes in the fair value of the security as quoted on an exchange or an inter-dealer quotation. Once liquidated, any realized gain or loss on the sale of marketable securities is reflected in our statement of operations for the period in which the securities are liquidated.

CD INTERNATIONAL ENTERPRISES, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
March 31, 2017
 
We perform an analysis of our marketable securities at least on an annual basis to determine if any of these securities have become other than temporarily impaired. If we determine that the decline in fair value is other than temporary we recognize the amount of the impairment as a realized loss into our current period net income (loss). This determination is based on a number of factors, including but not limited to (i) the percentage of the decline, (ii) the severity of the decline in relation to the enterprise/market conditions, and (iii) the duration of the decline.

Foreign Currency Translation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements are presented in United States dollars ("U.S. dollar"). The functional currency of our Chinese subsidiaries is the Renminbi ("RMB"), the official currency of the People's Republic of China ("PRC"). Capital accounts of the consolidated financial statements are translated into U.S. dollars from RMB at their historical exchange rates when the capital transactions occurred.  Assets and liabilities are translated at the exchange rates as of the balance sheet date.  Income and expenditures are translated at the average exchange rates for the three month periods ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively.  A summary of the conversion rates for the periods presented is as follows:

   
March 31, 2017
   
September 30, 2016
   
March 31, 2016
 
Period end RMB: U.S. dollar exchange rate
   
6.8882
     
6.6717
     
6.4479
 
Average fiscal-year-to-date RMB: U.S. dollar exchange rate
   
6.8607
     
6.5343
     
6.4614
 
 
The RMB is not freely convertible into foreign currency and all foreign exchange transactions must take place through PRC authorized institutions.  No representation is made that the RMB amounts could have been, or could be, converted into United States dollars at the rates applied in the translation.
 
Derivative Liabilities

The Company evaluates its financial instruments to determine if such instruments are derivatives or contain features that qualify as embedded derivatives. For derivative financial instruments that are accounted for as liabilities, the derivative instrument is initially recorded at its fair value and is then re-valued at each reporting date, with changes in the fair value reported in the statements of operations, in accordance with ASC 815-15, "Derivative and Hedging". The classification of derivative instruments, including whether such instruments should be recorded as liabilities or as equity, is evaluated at the end of each reporting period. Derivative instrument liabilities are classified in the balance sheet as current or non-current based on whether or not net-cash settlement of the derivative instrument could be required within 12 months of the balance sheet date.

ASC Subtopic 815-40, "Contracts in Entity's Own Equity," requires that entities recognize as derivative liabilities the derivative instruments, including certain derivative instruments embedded in other contracts that are not indexed to an entity's' own stock. Pursuant to the provisions of ASC Section 815-40-15, (formerly FASB Emerging Issues Task Force ("EITF") Issue No. 07-5: Determining Whether an Instrument (or Embedded Feature) Is Indexed to an Entity's Own Stock ("EITF 07-5")), an entity should use a two-step approach to evaluate whether an equity-linked financial instrument (or embedded feature) is indexed to its own stock, including evaluating the instrument's contingent exercise and settlement provisions.
 
Reclassifications

Certain prior year amounts have been reclassified to conform to the current period presentation. These reclassifications had no impact on net earnings and financial position.

 Recent Accounting Pronouncements
 
 In March 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-06, "Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815): Contingent Put and Call Options in Debt Instruments". The amendments clarify what steps are required when assessing whether the economic characteristics and risks of call (put) options are clearly and closely related to the economic characteristics and risks of their debt hosts, which is one of the criteria for bifurcating an embedded derivative. Consequently, when a call (put) option is contingently exercisable, an entity does not have to assess whether the event that triggers the ability to exercise a call (put) option is related to interest rates or credit risks. The amendments are effective for Public business entities for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016 and interim periods within those fiscal years. All entities have the option of adopting the new requirements early, including adoption in an interim period. The Company is currently in the process of evaluating the impact of the adoption on its consolidated financial statements.

In May 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-12, "Revenue from Contracts with Customers (Topic 606): Narrow-Scope Improvements and Practical Expedients". The amendments, among other things: (1) clarify the objective of the collectability criterion for applying paragraph 606-10-25-7; (2) permit an entity to exclude amounts collected from customers for all sales (and other similar) taxes from the transaction price; (3) specify that the measurement date for noncash consideration is contract inception; (4) provide a practical expedient that permits an entity to reflect the aggregate effect of all modifications that occur before the beginning of the earliest period presented when identifying the satisfied and unsatisfied performance obligations, determining the transaction price, and allocating the transaction price to the satisfied and unsatisfied performance obligations; (5) clarify that a completed contract for purposes of transition is a contract for which all (or substantially all) of the revenue was recognized under legacy GAAP before the date of initial application, and (6) clarify that an entity that retrospectively applies the guidance in Topic 606 to each prior reporting period is not required to disclose the effect of the accounting change for the period of adoption. The effective date of these amendments is at the same date that Topic 606 is effective. The Company is currently in the process of evaluating the impact of the adoption on its consolidated financial statements.

In August 2016, the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") issued Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") 2016-15, Statement of Cash Flows (Topic 230): Classification of Certain Cash Receipts and Cash Payments. This ASU addresses the classification of certain specific cash flow issues including debt prepayment or extinguishment costs, settlement of certain debt instruments, contingent consideration payments made after a business combination, proceeds from the settlement of certain insurance claims and distributions received from equity method investees. This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2017, and interim periods within those fiscal years, with early adoption permitted. An entity that elects early adoption must adopt all of the amendments in the same period. The Company is currently evaluating the impact it may have on its consolidated financial statements.
 
A variety of proposed or otherwise potential accounting standards are currently under study by standard setting organizations and various regulatory agencies. Due to the tentative and preliminary nature of those proposed standards, we have not determined whether implementation of such proposed standards would be material to our consolidated financial statements.

NOTE 2 - LOSS PER SHARE
 
Under the provisions of ASC 260, "Earnings Per Share - basic loss per common share is computed by dividing net loss attributable to common shareholders by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding for the periods presented. Diluted income (loss) per share reflects the potential dilution that could occur if securities or other contracts to issue common stock were exercised or converted into common stock or resulted in the issuance of common stock that would then share in the income of the company, subject to anti-dilution limitations.

 NOTE 4 - DERIVATIVE LIABILITIES

As described in Note 3, the Company defaulted on its loan with TCA which triggered the variable conversion option on the loan. The conversion option embedded in the convertible note contains no explicit limit to the number of shares to be issued upon settlement and as a result is classified as a liability under ASC 815. The Company accounted for the embedded conversion option in accordance with ASC 815-40, which requires the Company to bifurcate the embedded conversion options as liability at the date the note becomes convertible and to record changes in fair value relating to the conversion option liability in the statement of operations and comprehensive income as of each subsequent balance sheet date. The debt discount related to the convertible note is amortized over the life of the note using the effective interest method. The Company's conversion option liabilities are valued using Black-Scholes pricing models. Where possible, the Company verifies the values produced by its pricing models to market prices. Valuation models require a variety of inputs, including contractual terms, market prices, yield curves, credit spreads, measures of volatility and correlations of such inputs. These consolidated financial liabilities do not trade in liquid markets, and as such, model inputs cannot generally be verified and do involve significant management judgment. Such instruments are typically classified within Level 3 of the fair value hierarchy.

 The table below shows the Black-Scholes Option Pricing Model inputs used by the Company to value the conversion option derivative liability, as well as the determined value of the option liability at each measurement periods during the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016:

As of March 31, 2017, the fair value of the embedded conversion options was determined using the Black-Scholes option -pricing model to be $2,615,116. During the three and six months ended March 31, 2017, $89,368 and $133,732 of the derivative liabilities associated with embedded conversion options was written-off to equity upon the conversion of the notes. The total change in fair value of derivative liabilities related to convertible notes amounted to a loss of $1,227,782 and $4,962,034 for the six months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, respectively. 

In addition, the Company issued convertible preferred stock and the conversion price of the preferred stock is subject to adjustment if the Company issues or sells shares of common stock for a consideration per share less than the conversion or exercise price then in effect, or issue options, warrants or other securities convertible or exchangeable for shares of common stock at a conversion or exercise price less than the conversion price of the preferred stock then in effect. If either of these events should occur, the conversion price is reduced to the lowest price at which these securities were issued or are exercisable. These clauses were referred to as the "Anti-Dilution Rights". The Company analyzed and concluded the embedded conversion option is not clearly and closely related to the host contract as the preferred shares are redeemable at the holder's option. The Anti-Dilution Rights of the beneficial conversion feature make the conversion option not indexed to the company's own stock, and therefore requires the conversion feature to be treated as derivative liabilities as provided under ASC 815.

The Company used maximum value method to determine the fair value of derivative liabilities related to preferred stock conversion option. As of March 31, 2017 and September 30, 2016, the fair value of the derivative liabilities for preferred stock conversion option were $13,433,230 and $8,506,075. The net changes in fair value of derivative liabilities of preferred stock during the periods were expense of $4,927,155 and $4,174,176 during six months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016.

(1)     In April 2016, the Company received a notice of tax assessed by examination from IRS, based on which the Company's additional tax liabilities for fiscal year 2008, 2010 and 2011 remained to be approximately $4.6 million. Additionally, accrued interest and penalties of approximately $1.4 million was imposed as of April 22, 2016. 
 
NOTE 7 - CAPITAL STOCK

Preferred Stock and Related Dividends

Effective March 25, 2016, the Company's total number of shares of preferred stock authorized increased from 10,000,000 to 20,000,000 shares, par value $.0001, pursuant to the unanimous approval of the board of directors on March 8, 2016. Of the 20,000,000 shares of preferred stock:

1)  
12,950 shares have been designated as Series A Preferred Stock ("Series A")
2)  
41,524 shares have been designated as Series D Preferred Stock ("Series D")
3)  
209,375 shares have been designated as Series E Preferred Stock ("Series E")
4)  
1,670,000 shares have been designated as Series G Preferred Stock ("Series G") 

As of March 31, 2017 and September 30, 2016, Series D, E, and G preferred stock have no shares issued and outstanding and there is 1,006 shares of Series A preferred stock issued and outstanding. The Series A preferred stock has a stated value per share of $1,000, carries an 8% per annum dividend rate payable quarterly in arrears on January 1, April 1, July 1 and October 1 (each a "dividend date").  The dividends can be paid in cash or shares of our common stock, at our option, subject to certain provisions, on each dividend date. The holders are entitled to convert any whole number of preferred shares, plus the amount of any accrued but unpaid dividends per preferred share then remaining into the Company's common stock at the conversion rate which equals to the quotient of (i) the sum of the stated value and additional amount divided by (ii) the conversion price which was initially $7.00. The additional amount is calculated using a formula to represent the accrued but unpaid dividend. The terms of the Series A preferred stock provide that if we sell common stock at a price per share less than the then conversion price of the preferred stock, then we are required to reduce the conversion price of the Series A convertible preferred stock to the lower price of the subsequent sale. Since we have issued securities at prices lower than the exercise price of the $7.00 per share conversion price of the Series A preferred stock, we reduced the exercise price of those outstanding securities. The embedded conversion option is not clearly and closely related to the host contract as the preferred shares are redeemable at the holder's option. In addition, the conversion price of the preferred stock is subject to adjustment, and therefore requires the conversion feature to be treated as derivative liabilities as provided under ASC 815. See Note 4 for discussion on derivative liabilities.

The dividends calculated at $20,130 per quarter are payable in cash or shares of our common stock at our option subject to certain provisions. If paid in shares of common stock, the stock shall be valued at the lower of the conversion price or the average of the weighted average price of the 10 consecutive trading days immediately preceding the dividend date. During the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016, we did not pay off dividends in cash or our common stock on our Series A convertible preferred stock. As of March 31, 2017 and September 30, 2016, accrued dividend payable is $237,530 and $197,270, respectively.

 NOTE 10 - COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

Income Tax Matters

In April 2016, the Company received the notice of tax assessed by examination from IRS, based on which the Company's additional tax liabilities for fiscal year 2008, 2010 and 2011 remained to be approximately $4.6 million. Additionally, accrued interest and penalties of approximately $1.4 million was imposed as of April 22, 2016.  In May 2016, an attorney was retained by the Company to represent before IRS in connection with the outstanding federal income tax liability. On June 6, 2016, the IRS closed the examination of the Company's tax returns for fiscal year 2008, 2010 and 2011. The Company is currently considering filing an offer-in-compromise based on doubt as to collectability. As of the filing date, a reasonable estimate of loss cannot be made by the management as there have been no negotiations with an IRS representative. If the offer is ultimately rejected, the final tax liabilities enforced by IRS could have a material effect on the Company's results of operations and financial position and liquidity. The Company accrued a liability of $6,011,529 during 2016 associated with these assessments.

ITEM 2.
MANAGEMENT'S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATION.

The following discussion and analysis of our consolidated financial condition and results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2017 and 2016 should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and other information presented in our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended September 30, 2016 as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 14, 2017 and with the consolidated financial statements and other information presented in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q.

OVERVIEW OF OUR OPERATIONS

Our Business

We are a U.S. company that sources and distributes industrial products in Asia, and the Americas. We also provide business and management consulting services to public and private American and Chinese businesses. We operate in two identifiable business segments, as defined by the Financial Accounting Standards Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 280, "Segment Reporting:" Trading segment and Consulting segment. Through our U.S. based industrial commodities business, we source, finance, manage logistics, and sell industrial commodities from South America for ultimate distribution in China. We also provide business and management consulting services to public and private American and Chinese businesses.  
 
Our Trading segment engages in the source and distribution of the global purchase and sale of industrial commodities in the Americas, which include Cannabidiol (CBD)-related products, oil-related products, mineral ores and non-ferrous metals. We have realigned our investments to our industrial commodities business in the Americas to maximize our profits and cash flow over the past fiscal years of 2017 and 2016. We are very excited to begin retailing CBD-based products in Chinese-speaking communities through the newly established subsidiary, while also pursuing opportunities to distribute bulk CBD crystal in the U.S. Research has indicated CBD to be effective in treating epilepsy, Alzheimer's disease, cirrhosis of the liver and to provide relief from hangover, anxiety and stress. Because natural extract of CBD-based products is so similar to traditional Chinese medicine, management believes there is huge opportunity in Chinese-speaking communities for CBD-based products. We plan to choose the best products available to start penetration of these enormous potential markets.

Our Consulting segment provides services to public and private American and Chinese entities seeking access to the U.S. and Chinese capital markets. These services include general business consulting, Chinese regulatory advice, translation services, formation of entities in the PRC, coordinate on of professional resources, mergers and acquisitions, strategic alliances and partnerships, advice on effective means of accessing U.S. capital markets, coordination of Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, and corporate asset evaluations.

 
OUR OUTLOOK

A significant portion of our business and operations are in China and, accordingly, its national economy plays a significant role in our results of operations. The Chinese economy advanced 6.9% year-on-year in the first quarter of 2017. Exports from China increased by 16.4 percent year-on-year to $180.6 billion in March of 2017, following a 1.3 percent decrease in February while markets expected a 3.2 percent growth. Considering the first three months of 2017, exports went up 8.2 percent from the same period a year earlier with sales increasing to Hong Kong (0.9 percent), India (14.2 percent), Japan (4.8 percent), South Korea (17.4 percent), Taiwan (10 percent), ASEAN countries (11.4 percent), the EU countries (7.4 percent), South Africa (16.5 percent), Brazil (35.8 percent), Russia (22.4 percent), Australia (8.7 percent) and New Zealand (6.5 percent).

Export growth has been a major component supporting China's rapid economic expansion. In the last 2 years, the exports declined due to weaker global demand but China's proportion of global exports rose to 13.8 percent in 2015 from 12.3 percent in 2014. Exports in China averaged $590.36 billion from 1983 until 2017, reaching an all time high of $2,273.72 billion in December of 2014 and a record low of $13 billion in January of 1984.

Information On Trends Impacting Our Reporting Segments Follows:
 
Trading Segment

AWe have been working on several major contracts focus on sourcing and distributing a variety of Cannabidiol-related products, oil-related products, industrial commodities such as iron ore and copper concentrate, we expect to see major transactions executed in 2017. In April 2017, the Company launched a new division to distribute Cannabidiol ("CBD") crystal in the U.S. and CBD-based products to Chinese speaking population. The launch of Green Products Distribution and the associated online store is a key part of the expansion plans underway. Our primary goal with this launch is to retail CBD-based products in Chinese-speaking communities, which collectively represent a potential global market of over 1.6 billion people.

 The CBD crystal is processed from industrial hemp and manufactured in China. The Chinese have long embraced homeopathic and natural remedies. CBD has been used to treat epilepsy, cirrhosis of the liver, to provide relief from anxiety, stress and to assist those burdened with Alzheimer’s disease. Green Products Distribution has launched a new online store (http://www.greencbdproducts.com/cbd). This is a key part of CD International’s new expansion plan. The Company has entered several distribution agreements with major U.S. CBD-based manufacturers to market CBD-based products to Chinese speaking population.

Consulting Segment

We believe demand for our consulting services will slightly improve in fiscal year 2017. Our consulting business will focus on our current clients while we try to expand our services to new areas to facilitate business transactions among China, North and South Americas. Our Consulting segment revenues primarily consist of consulting and advisory service fees we received from certain publicly traded U.S. companies with their primary business operations located in the PRC. Our consulting fees vary based upon the scope of the services to be rendered. Historically, a significant portion of the fees we earned have been paid in the form of our clients' securities. We receive a fixed number of shares of their marketable securities or fees from those client companies, including both recurring and one-time transaction fees for services provided to clients. Consulting segment revenues vary from period to period depending upon the timing, nature and scope of services we provide to a particular client. In addition to potential transaction fees, we also anticipate receiving additional client fees generated from our ongoing annual service contracts.

Merger and Acquisition

Management pursues potential mergers and acquisitions to grow the Company's revenues and earnings. Management does not have any specific acquisition target as of now.

GOING CONCERN

Our financial statements have been prepared assuming we will continue as a going concern. For the three and six months ended March 31, 2017 we reported a net loss of $3.6 million and $7.0 million from continuing operations, respectively, and working capital deficit of $27.5 million. In addition, the Company has a significant amount of short term loan payable, totaling $1.9 million from unrelated parties, which requires the Company to secure additional funds given the Company's current cash position. The Company's cash and cash equivalent and revenues are not currently sufficient and cannot be projected to cover operating expenses in the coming year. These, among other operational issues, raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going concern.

LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

Liquidity is the ability of an enterprise to generate adequate amounts of cash to meet its needs for cash. As of March 31, 2017 we had a working capital deficit of $27.8 million, as compared to $21.3 million as of September 30, 2016. We rely upon cash generated from our operations, access under factoring and other lending relationships and advances from related parties to fund our operations. We do not have any commitments for capital expenditures. Our Consulting segment generally receives full payment in advance for consulting services to be provided over the term of the contract, primarily in the form of our client companies' common stock. For transactions in which we advise a new client company on entering into the U.S. public market for the first time, it may take some additional time for us to receive our transaction fees due to the necessary compliance and regulatory filing process, and it is possible that at such time, if ever, when we are able to sell the securities we receive as compensation, the funds we receive upon the sale will not be equal to the amount of revenue we initially recognized.  In addition, revenues from this segment do not provide cash to pay costs or operating expenses until we are able to liquidate those securities, on which there are no assurances.  As a result of the working capital deficit and the operating losses incurred, our cash flow from operations is not sufficient to sustain our operations and satisfy our obligations as they become due.

Our cash balance as of March 31, 2017 amounted to approximately $10,897, an increase of $588, as compared to September 30, 2016. During the six month ended March 31, 2017, we had cash outflow of $51,732 used in operating activities and inflow of $52,358 provided in financing activities.

Prepaid expenses and other current assets consist of prepayments to vendors for services, other receivables and security deposits. Prepaid expenses and other current assets as of March 31, 2017 amounted to approximately $23,000, an increase of $3,000 as compared to September 30, 2016, primarily due to the advanced payment on behalf to our consultant in the six month ended March 31, 2017.
 
Short-term loans at March 31, 2017 included approximately $809,000 of loan from TCA Global Credit Master Fund, LP, bearing annual interest at 18%, and were due on October 15, 2016. We should make monthly payments to TCA in the amount of $40,000 commencing on November 30, 2015 until the complete repayment of all payables due to TCA; $200,000 of loan from Draco Resources, Inc., bearing annual interest at 2%, which is currently in default; approximately $149,000 loan from Kong Tung, bearing monthly interest at 2%, which was originally due on January 7, 2015 and extended to December 31, 2015; $47,000 of loan from Yewen Xi, bearing annual interest at 12%, of which is due on September 30, 2016, $200,000 is due on August 31, 2016 and $40,000 is due on January 10, 2018; $29,000 of total balance of two loans from Money Works Direct, the principal amounts of $50,000 and $120,000, monthly interest rates at 4.44% and 4.61%, respectively, due on October 15, 2016. China Direct Investments made cash repayment of $1,500 for the two loans per week; and a total of approximately $415,000 convertible loans from multiple institutional investors with a term of four months to one year. These convertible notes bear 8% - 12% annual interest rate and conversion price is equal to 50% - 60% of lowest trading price of CDII common stock for certain consecutive days prior to the conversion. Net of total of debt discount of $12,000, net short-term loan amounted to be $1,889,000 as of March 31, 2017.

Accounts payable and accrued expenses represent payables associated with the general operations within each segment, including accrued payrolls. Accounts payable and accrued expenses as of March 31, 2017 amounted to approximately $973,000, an increase of approximately $73,000 as compared to September 30, 2016, primarily due to interest payable of the short-term loans.
