PART I

ITEM 1.
BUSINESS

OVERVIEW

New Dragon Asia Corp. and its subsidiaries (collectively, “New Dragon”, “NWD”, “the Company”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) are engaged in the milling, sale and distribution of flour and related products, including instant noodles and soybean-derived products, to retail and wholesale customers throughout China. We are headquartered in Shandong Province in the People’s Republic of China (“PRC” or “China”). With a well-known brand name called “Long Feng”, we market our well-established product line through a countrywide network of over 200 key distributors and 16 regional offices in 27 Chinese provinces. We have eight manufacturing plants in the PRC with an aggregate annual production capacity of approximately 110,000 tons of flour and approximately 1.1 billion packets of instant noodles and 4,500 tons of Soybean powder. We were incorporated in the State of Florida on March 18, 1999 under the name Bio-Aqua Systems, Inc.

OUR PRODUCTS AND PRODUCTION

We produce and market a broad range of wheat flour for use in bread, dumplings, noodles and confectionary products. Our flour products are marketed under the “Long Feng” brand name and sold throughout China at both wholesale and retail levels.

We provide a wide range of instant noodle products to our customers. Our products can be separated into two broad categories for selling and marketing purposes: (i) packet noodles for home preparation and (ii) snacks and cup noodles for outdoor convenience. We also produce two types of soybean products – soybean protein powder and soybean powder. These products are principally supplied to food and beverage manufacturers.

Our revenue by product category for the year ended December 25, 2010 was approximately 57% for flour products, 23% for instant noodles and 20% for soybean products.

    $ 27,372     $ 23,217  

For more information, please refer to Note 19 of the accompanying consolidated financial statements “Segment Information”.

We believe that we have developed a reputation in China for producing high quality food products. Our production plants operate at a high level of hygiene and efficiency and all of our plants are certified under the ISO9002 standards. Most of our “state of the art” manufacturing equipment is imported from Switzerland, Japan, and Korea. We also operate strict quality control systems, resulting in a favorable customer perception of the “Long Feng” brand.

Flour and water are the two main ingredients used to produce our noodle products. Flour is extracted from wheat through a milling process. Wheat sourced by our milling operation in Shandong Province is generally regarded as being the highest quality available in China. To produce our noodles, we mix flour with water and other ingredients and then extrude or roll the mixture into the desired shape of the noodle. The mixture then travels through a series of state-of-the-art dryers before being stabilized at room temperature. After stabilization, the noodles are steamed and cooked in deep fryers, cooled and then mixed with various seasonings and freeze dried additives such as chicken, vegetables or beef, which are prepared from raw ingredients in a separate building within our production complex. The finished product is then packed, palletized and shipped.

MARKETING AND SALES

Most of our products are regionally marketed and distributed throughout China. Our sales and marketing strategy focuses on maintaining our relationships with our distributors by holding annual sales order meetings and hosting regular distributor conferences.  We also believe that we have an excellent quality/price dynamic.

 
1

 

Our domestic distribution system is the key to our continued success in developing “Long Feng” as one of the leading brands in China. We have more than 200 points of distribution, of which 10 are our direct sales offices, spread over 27 provinces in China. The remaining 190 sales points are owned and managed by distributors. Most of our distributors have long-term relationships with us and are loyal and efficient vendors of our products.  During 2010, sales in China accounted for 70% of our instant noodle sales.

Our primary customer base for both our flour products and instant noodles consists of stores in the rural areas throughout China, where we believe our brand has long been recognized as the highest quality available for the price. The rural market is rapidly growing, benefiting from increases in rural consumer income. We believe that brand loyalty is strongest in this sector. The Company also sells to supermarkets mainly in urban areas.
 
 
In addition to domestic sales, we also export noodles to other countries such as South Korea, Australia, Malaysia and Indonesia.  We also obtained HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) certification from CCIC Conformity Assessment Services Co. Ltd., a Chinese quality assurance examination authority, enabling the Company to begin exports of instant noodles and soybean powder to Europe. In early 2008, we began exporting noodles to Nigeria, Africa. During 2010, export sales accounted for approximately 30% of our instant noodle sales.

COMPETITION

The flour industry in the PRC is very competitive. Our largest competitors are Shandong Guang Rao Ban Qiu Flour and Hebei Wu De Li Flour in the Northern market and Shenzhen Nanshun Flour in the Southern market.

The instant noodle segment in the PRC is also highly competitive. We compete against well-established foreign companies, and many smaller companies. Our largest competitors are the “Master Kang” brand manufactured by Tingyi (Cayman Island) Holdings Corporation and the “President” brand manufactured by Uni-President Group, both based in Taiwan. Both are focused predominately in the more developed and competitive urban markets.  We do not face substantial competition in the “high-quality” soybean powder market.

STRATEGY

Our strategy for growth is to capitalize on our strong brand name and pursue strategic partnerships and acquisitions that will enhance our sales. The following are some of the key elements of our business growth strategy:

-
acquire additional locations to increase our production capacity; and
-
build strategic alliances with multinational food groups to enhance product range and capitalize on our distribution network in China.

Plans for expansion of the existing plants are expected to be funded through current working capital from ongoing sales. Acquisitions of plants will require an additional infusion of funds in the form of debt or equity, or a combination of both.  However, there can be no assurance these funds will be available.

EMPLOYEES

We employ approximately 1,500 employees. All of them are located in the eight plants and our corporate office located in Shandong Province, Sichuan Province and Beijing. We have maintained good relationships with our employees and no major disputes have incurred since our inception.

GOVERNMENTAL REGULATIONS ON OUR OPERATIONS IN CHINA

All of our PRC subsidiary companies operate in facilities that are located in China. Accordingly, our PRC subsidiaries’ operations have to conform to the governmental regulations and rules of China.

We are subject to the PRC’s national Environmental Protection Law, which was enacted on December 26, 1989, as well as a number of other national and local laws and regulations regulating air, water, and noise pollution and setting pollutant discharge standards. Violation of such laws and regulations could result in warnings, fines, orders to cease operations, and even criminal penalties, depending on the circumstances of such violation. We believe that all manufacturing operations comply with applicable environmental laws, including those laws relating to air, water, and noise pollution.

We are also subject to various laws and regulations administered by various local governments relating to the operation of our production facilities. We believe that we are in compliance with all governmental laws and regulations related to our products and facilities.

THE CHINESE LEGAL SYSTEM

The practical effect of the PRC’s legal system on our business operations in China can be viewed from two separate but intertwined considerations.

First, as a matter of substantive law, the Foreign Invested Enterprise laws provide significant protection from government interference. In addition, these laws guarantee the full enjoyment of the benefits of corporate articles and contracts to Foreign Invested Enterprise participants. These laws, however, do impose standards concerning corporate formation and governance, which are not qualitatively different from the General Corporation Laws of the several states. Therefore, as a practical matter, a Foreign Invested Enterprise needs to retain or have ready access to a local Chinese law firm for routine compliance purposes.

Similarly, the PRC accounting laws mandate accounting practices, which are not co-existent with U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. The China accounting laws require that an annual “statutory audit” be performed in accordance with PRC accounting standards and that the books of account of Foreign Invested Enterprises are maintained in accordance with Chinese accounting laws. Article 14 of the People’s Republic of China Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprise Law requires a Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprise to submit certain periodic fiscal reports and statements to designated financial and tax authorities, at the risk of business license revocation. As a practical matter, a Foreign Invested Enterprise must retain a local Chinese accounting firm that has experience with both the Chinese standards and U.S. Generally Accepted Accounting Principles. This type of accounting firm can serve the dual function of performing the annual Chinese statutory audit and preparing the Foreign Invested Enterprise’s financial statements in a form acceptable for an independent U.S. certified public accountant to issue an audit report in accordance with U.S. Generally Accepted Auditing Standards.

Second, while the enforcement of substantive rights may appear less clear than United States procedures, the Foreign Invested Enterprises and Wholly Foreign-Owned Enterprises are Chinese registered companies, which enjoy the same status as other Chinese registered companies in business-to-business dispute resolution. Because the terms of the respective Articles of Association provide that all business disputes pertaining to Foreign Invested Enterprises are to be resolved by the Arbitration Institute of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce in Stockholm, Sweden applying Chinese substantive law, the Chinese minority partner in our joint venture companies will not assume a privileged position regarding such disputes. Any award rendered by this arbitration tribunal is, by the express terms of the respective Articles of Association, enforceable in accordance with the “United Nations Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards (1958).” Therefore, as a practical matter, although no assurances can be given, the Chinese legal infrastructure, while different in operation from its United States counterpart, should not present any significant impediment to the operation of Foreign Invested Enterprises.

CURRENCY CONVERSION AND EXCHANGE

Substantially all our revenues and expenses are denominated in the Chinese Renminbi. However, we use the United States dollar for financial reporting purposes. The value of Chinese Renminbi against the United States dollar and other currencies may fluctuate as a result of changes in two countries’ economic conditions. To date, we have not engaged in any currency hedging transactions in connection with our operations.

CUSTOMERS

We have approximately 560 customers for our products. None of our customers individually accounts for more than 5% of our revenue.

We source our wheat and soybean from approximately 50 suppliers. None of the suppliers individually accounts for more than 5% of our purchases. Historically, our fourth quarter revenue is much higher than the other three quarters due to preparations for the Chinese New Year holiday, which begins in January or February.

DIVIDEND POLICY

Under current PRC regulations, wholly foreign-owned enterprises and Sino-foreign equity joint ventures in the PRC may pay dividends only out of their accumulated profits, if any, determined in accordance with PRC accounting standards and regulations. Additionally, these foreign-invested enterprises are required to set aside certain amounts of their accumulated profits each year, if any, to fund certain reserve funds. These reserves are not distributable as cash dividends.

We have never declared or paid any cash dividends on our Class A Common Stock and we do not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future. We currently intend to retain future earnings, if any, to finance operations and the expansion of our business. Any future determination to pay cash dividends will be at the discretion of the board of directors and will be based upon our financial condition, operating results, capital requirements, plans for expansion, restrictions imposed by any financing arrangements and any other factors that the board of directors deems relevant.

MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS.

This report includes forward-looking statements. Generally, the words “believes,” “anticipates,” “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “intend,” “estimate,” “continue,” and similar expressions or the negative thereof or comparable terminology are intended to identify forward-looking statements. Such statements are subject to certain risks and uncertainties, including the matters set forth in this report or other reports or documents we file with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time, which could cause actual results or outcomes to differ materially from those projected. Undue reliance should not be placed on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. We undertake no obligation to update these forward-looking statements.

To supplement our consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with GAAP, we discuss our results in terms of financial measures that may be deemed to be “non-GAAP financial measures” under the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.  Our management believes that these measures provide meaningful information regarding the Company’s performance and liquidity by excluding certain expenses that may not be indicative of its core operating results and facilitate comparisons to its historical operations and competitors’ operating results.  To the extent such measures are not readily reconcilable to the comparable GAAP financial measures contained in its consolidated financial statements, we provide detailed reconciliations that permit investors to determine how such non-GAAP financial measures have been derived.

The following discussion and analysis should be read in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements and the related notes thereto and other financial information contained elsewhere in this Form 10-K.

Net Revenue

Net revenue for the year ended December 25, 2010 was $27.37 million, an increase of $4.15 million, or 17.87%, as compared to $23.22 million for the prior year. Revenues increased in instant noodle and flour segments by 59% and 20% as the global economy began to recover and the demand for our products gradually strengthened. However, revenue decreased in soybean segment by 12%, as the Company is gradually ceasing the production of  lower-margin products and planning to concentrate on high-margin products, such as soybean-protein powder in the future. During the transition period,  revenue of soybean segment is expected to be temporarily lower.

Cost of goods sold

For the year ended December 25, 2010, cost of goods sold was $27.42 million, an increase of $2.9 million, or 11.83%, as compared to $24.52 million for 2009. The increase was in line with the increase in sales of our products.

For the year ended December 25, 2010, as a percentage of revenue, cost of goods sold decreased to 100.16% of sales as compared to 105.60% of sales for that of the prior year. For the year ended December 25, 2010, gross loss decreased to 0.16% as compared to 5.60% for the prior year. The improvement in gross margin was mainly attributable to mix improvement resulting from the increase in sales volumes in our flour segment.

Selling and distribution expenses

Selling and distribution expenses consist primarily of salaries, commissions and associated employee benefits, travel expenses of sales and marketing personnel and promotional expenses.

For the year ended December 25, 2010, selling and distribution expenses decreased slightly 8.51% to $0.86 million from $0.94 million in 2009. The decrease was primarily due to the cost controls implemented by us.

General and administrative expenses

For the year ended December 25, 2010, general and administrative expenses increased $1.88 million to $8.26 million from $6.38 million of 2009. The increase was primarily due to the provision for doubtful accounts. This provision stems from customers with receivable balance over one year old. Many of our customers are export-related companies. In 2010, these companies were still seriously affected by the worldwide economy slowdown and overseas orders for Chinese food and agriculture products did not recover as quickly as expected. As a result, the food export industry in Shandong was slow to recover and the turnover rate of funds stayed at a low level. As a part of the industry chain and supplier to export entities, the Company had to inevitably face the lengthening of its average days outstanding regarding receivables from its customers. During 2010, the Company believes it recorded the appropriate provision for bad debts and  has the appropriate allowance at December 25, 2010. The Company will gradually tighten its credit policy and intends to strengthen collection effort regarding outstanding receivables, including legal remedies when necessary. The Company believes this will prevent significant bad debts in the future.

Gain/(loss) on Fair Value Adjustments to Embedded Derivatives

The Company issued Series A Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock in July 2005, together with 3,157,895 warrants to purchase Class A Common Stock resulting in aggregate proceeds of $6 million. The Company also issued Series B Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock in December 2005, together with 2,968,750 warrants to purchase Class A Common Stock resulting in aggregate proceeds of $9.5 million. The fair value of each instrument was recorded as a derivative liability on our balance sheet. The corresponding gain or loss, which was non-cash in nature, from changes in the fair values of these instruments was recorded in our statement of income.  For the year ended December 25, 2010, the loss in this regard was $0.62 million.  For the corresponding period of 2009, the gain in this regard was $0.18 million. The determination of the change in the value of the derivatives requires the use of a complex valuation model and can fluctuate significantly between periods based on changes in the price of our shares and the time remaining in the life of the underlying financial instruments. Increase in our stock’s market value increases the value of the derivative creating losses in our income statements and decrease in the stock’s market value reduces the value of the derivatives creating gains in our income statements.

VAT refund

VAT refund was $0.19 million for the year ended December 25, 2010 and $0.06 million for the year ended December 25, 2009.

Net (Loss) Attributable to Common Shareholders

For the year ended December 25, 2010, net loss was $9.01 million, an improvement of $2.09 million, or 18.83% as compared to $11.10 million for 2009. As a percentage of revenue, net loss was 32.92% for the year ended December 25, 2010 as compared to 47.80% for the prior year.  Such improvement was primarily due to the improvement in revenue and no significant disposal of spoiled raw material, which happened in 2009.

Void Share Issuances in 2010

During 2010, 19,509,894 shares of the Company’s Class A common stock were issued in excess of the Company's Articles of Incorporation.   Such shares are void under Florida law and are not entitled to vote at meetings of our stockholders or to any other rights of a stockholder of the Company.  In addition, any shareholder holding such void shares is entitled to recover their value from the Company unless the Company is able to replace the void share with a valid share.  As of December 25, 2010, this obligation results in a potential commitment to buy back shares amounting to approximately $800,000, plus the expenses associated with administering such claims. The Company has recorded the liability in the Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock account where the shares were converted from and that contractual obligation could not be satisfied except with redemption or conversion to valid shares,

Accordingly, the Company has proposed in the shareholders’ meeting scheduled to be held on May 13, 2011 to increase the authorized shares to 119,509,894 in order to cover the excess shares issued. Should the shareholders’ resolution be not approved, the Company might need to buy from the market 19,509,894 shares amounting to approximately $800,000 using the latest market price of $0.04 per share.

Upon completion of the amendments to its Articles, the Company expect to complete the over-due redemption of the Series B Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock with additional shares of Class A common stock, to the extent permitted by the terms thereof.
 
FINANCIAL CONDITION, LIQUIDITY AND CAPITAL RESOURCES

The Company’s primary liquidity needs are for the purchase of inventories and funding accounts receivable and capital expenditures. Historically, the Company has financed its working capital requirements through a combination of internally generated cash and advances from related companies.

Our working capital slightly decreased $0.29 million to $29.55 million at December 25, 2010 as compared to $29.84 million at December 25, 2009, which was primarily due to the fluctuation of the fair value of embedded derivatives.

Cash and cash equivalents were $2.76 million as of December 25, 2010, a decrease of $0.68 million from December 25, 2009. The Company believes that it has enough cash available and expects to have enough income and cash flow from operations to operate for the next 12 months.

Off-balance sheet arrangements

We have never entered into any off-balance sheet financing arrangements and have not formed any special purpose entities. We have not guaranteed any debt or commitments of other entities or entered into any options on non-financial assets.

INFLATION AND CHANGING PRICES

The Company does not foresee any material adverse effects on its earnings as a result of inflation or changing prices.

CRITICAL ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Our discussion and analysis of our financial condition and results of operations is based upon our consolidated financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.  The preparation of these consolidated financial statements requires us to make estimates, judgments and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses, and the related disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities.  We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe are reasonable under the circumstances, the results of which form the basis for making judgments about the carrying values of assets and liabilities that are not readily apparent from other sources.  Actual results may differ from these estimates.

An accounting policy is considered to be critical if it requires an accounting estimate to be made based on assumptions about matters that are highly uncertain at the time the estimates are made, and if different estimates that reasonably could have been used, or changes in the accounting estimates that are reasonably likely to occur, could materially impact the consolidated financial statements.  We believe the following critical accounting policies reflect the more significant estimates and assumptions used in the preparation of the consolidated financial statements.

Contractual Joint Ventures

A contractual joint venture is an entity established between the Company and another joint venture partner, with the rights and obligations of each party governed by a contract.  Currently, the Company has established three contractual joint ventures with three Chinese partners in China, with percentage of ownership ranging from 79.64% to 90%.  Pursuant to each Chinese joint venture agreement, each Chinese joint venture partner is entitled to receive a pre-determined annual fee and is not responsible for any profit or loss, regardless of the ownership in the contractual joint venture.  In view of such contracted profit sharing arrangement, the three contractual joint ventures are regarded as 100% owned by the Company.  Hence, the Company’s consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of the contractual joint ventures.

Revenue Recognition

Our revenues are generated from sales of flour, soybean products and instant noodles. All of our revenue transactions contain standard business terms and conditions. We determine the appropriate accounting for these transactions after considering (1) whether a contract exists; (2) when to recognize revenue on the deliverables; and (3) whether all elements of the contract have been fulfilled and delivered. In addition, our revenue recognition policy requires an assessment as to whether collection is reasonably assured, which inherently requires us to evaluate the creditworthiness of our customers. Changes in judgments on these assumptions and estimates could materially impact the timing or amount of revenue recognition.

Accounting for Derivative Instruments

Derivatives are recorded on the Company’s balance sheet at fair value. These derivatives, including embedded derivatives in the Company’s Series A and B Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock are separately valued and accounted for on the Company’s balance sheet.

The Company has determined that the conversion features of its redeemable convertible preferred stock and warrants to purchase common stock are derivatives that the Company is required to account for as if they were free-standing instruments. The Company has also determined that it is required to designate these derivatives as liabilities in its financial statements. As a result, the Company reports the value of these embedded derivatives as current liabilities on its balance sheet and reports changes in the value of these derivatives as non-operating gains or losses on its statement of operations. The value of the derivatives is required to be recalculated (and resulting non-operating gains or losses reflected in the statement of operations and resulting adjustments to the associated liability amounts reflected on the balance sheet) on a quarterly basis, and is based on the market value of the Company’s common stock. Due to the nature of the required calculations and the large number of shares of the Company’s common stock involved in such calculations, changes in the Company’s common stock price may result in significant changes in the value of the derivatives and resulting gains and losses on the Company’s statement of operations.

The pricing models the Company uses for determining fair values of its derivatives are a combination of the Black-Scholes and Binomial Pricing Models. Valuations derived from this model are subject to ongoing internal and external review. The model uses market-sourced inputs such as interest rates and option volatilities. Selection of these inputs involves management’s judgment and may impact net earnings. The Company has obtained a valuation report from a valuation firm to support its estimates as of December 25, 2010 and December 25, 2009.

The consolidated financial statements also reflect additional non-operating gains and losses related to the classification of and accounting for: (1) the conversion features of the Series A and B Preferred Stock and associated warrants, and (2) the amortization associated with the discount recorded with respect to the Series A and B Preferred Stock as a preferred stock dividend.

Share-Based Payment

On December 16, 2004, the FASB issued SFAS 123R, “Share-Based Payment,” (now Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 718, “Compensation-Stock Compensation”) which replaces SFAS 123, “Accounting for Stock-Based Compensation” and supersedes APB Opinion No. 25, “Accounting for Stock Issued to Employees.” ASC 718 requires all share-based payments to employees, including grants of employee stock options, to be recognized in the financial statements based on the grant date fair value of the award. Under ASC 718, we must determine the appropriate fair value model to be used for valuing share-based payments, the amortization method for compensation cost and the transition method to be used at date of adoption. The transition methods include prospective and retroactive adoption options. Under the retroactive options, prior periods may be restated either as of the beginning of the year of adoption or for all periods presented. The prospective method requires that compensation expense be recorded for all unvested stock options and restricted stock at the beginning of the first quarter of adoption of ASC 718, while the retroactive methods would record compensation expense for all unvested stock options and restricted stock beginning with the first period restated. We have adopted the requirements of ASC 718 for the fiscal year beginning on December 26, 2005, and recorded the compensation expense for all unvested stock options.

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts

Management provides for an allowance for doubtful accounts for those third party trade accounts that are not collected within one year. We base our estimate (one year) on historical experience and on continuous monitoring of customers’ credit and settlement. We believe we have reasonable basis for making judgments on the allowance for doubtful accounts.

We normally grant up to 90 days credit to our customers. We monitor our allowance for doubtful accounts on a monthly basis.

Inventories Valuation

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost, determined on a weighted average basis, or net realizable value. Costs of work-in-progress and finished goods are composed of direct material, direct labor and an attributable portion of manufacturing overhead. Net realizable value is the estimated selling price, in the ordinary course of business, less estimated costs to complete and dispose.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

In January 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-2, “Accounting and Reporting for Decreases in Ownership of a Subsidiary- a Scope Clarification”. ASU 2010-2 addresses implementation issues related to the changes in ownership provisions in the Consolidation—Overall Subtopic (Subtopic 810-10) of the FASB ASC, originally issued as SFAS 160, “Noncontrolling Interests in Consolidated Financial Statements”. Subtopic 810-10 establishes the accounting and reporting guidance for noncontrolling interests and changes in ownership interests of a subsidiary. An entity is required to deconsolidate a subsidiary when the entity ceases to have a controlling financial interest in the subsidiary. Upon deconsolidation of a subsidiary, an entity recognizes a gain or loss on the transaction and measures any retained investment in the subsidiary at fair value. The gain or loss includes any gain or loss associated with the difference between the fair value of the retained investment in the subsidiary and its carrying amount at the date the subsidiary is deconsolidated. In contrast, an entity is required to account for a decrease in ownership interest of a subsidiary that does not result in a change of control of the subsidiary as an equity transaction. ASU 2010-2 is effective for the Company starting January 3, 2010. The adoption of ASU 2010-2 will not have a material impact on the Company's results of operations or financial position.

In January 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-6, “Improving Disclosures about Fair Measurements". ASU 2010-6 provides amendments to subtopic 820-10 that require separate disclosure of significant transfers into and out of Level 1 and Level 2 fair value measurements and the presentation of separate information regarding purchases, sales, issuances and settlements on a gross basis in the reconciliation of Level 3 fair value measurements. Additionally, ASU 2010-6 provides amendments to subtopic 820-10 that clarify existing disclosures about the level of disaggregation and inputs and valuation techniques. ASU 2010-6 is effective for financial statements issued for annual reporting periods after beginning after December 15, 2009, except for Level 3 reconciliation disclosures which are effective for annual periods beginning December 15, 2010. The adoption of ASU 2010-06 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

In February 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-9 “Subsequent Events (Topic 855) Amendments to Certain Recognition and Disclosure Requirements”. ASU 2010-9 amends disclosure requirements within Subtopic 855-10. An entity that is an SEC filer is not required to disclose the date through which subsequent events have been evaluated. This change alleviates potential conflicts between Subtopic 855-10 and the SEC's requirements. ASU 2010-9 is effective for interim and annual periods ending after June 15, 2010. The adoption of ASU 2010-06 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

In March 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-11 “Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815) Scope Exception Related to Embedded Credit Derivatives”. ASU 2010-11 clarifies the type of embedded credit derivative that is exempt from embedded derivative bifurcation requirements. Only one form of embedded credit derivative qualifies for the exemption—one that is related only to the subordination of one financial instrument to another. As a result, entities that have contracts containing an embedded credit derivative feature in a form other than such subordination may need to separately account for the embedded credit derivative feature. The amendments in this Update are effective for each reporting entity at the beginning of its first fiscal quarter beginning after June 15, 2010. Early adoption is permitted at the beginning of each entity’s first fiscal quarter beginning after issuance of this Update. The adoption of ASU 2010-11 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

In April 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-13 “Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718) Effect of Denominating the Exercise Price of a Share-Based Payment Award in the Currency of the Market in Which the Underlying Equity Security Trades”. ASU 2010-13 addresses the classification of a share-based payment award with an exercise price denominated in the currency of a market in which the underlying equity security trades. Topic 718 is amended to clarify that a share-based payment award with an exercise price denominated in the currency of a market in which a substantial portion of the entity’s equity securities trades shall not be considered to contain a market, performance, or service condition. Therefore, such an award is not to be classified as a liability if it otherwise qualifies as equity classification. The amendments in this Update should be effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning on or after December 15, 2010. The guidance should be applied by recording a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings for all outstanding awards as of the beginning of the fiscal year in which the amendments are initially applied. The Company expects the adoption of ASU 2010-13 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

In April 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-18Effect of a Loan Modification When the Loan Is Part of a Pool That Is Accounted for as a Single Asset (A consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task)”. ASU 2010-18 clarifies that modifications of loans that are accounted for within a pool under Subtopic 310-30, which provides guidance on accounting for acquired loans that have evidence of credit deterioration upon acquisition, do not result in the removal of those loans from the pool even if the modification would otherwise be considered a troubled debt restructuring. An entity will continue to be required to consider whether the pool of assets in which the loan is included is impaired if expected cash flows for the pool change. The amendments do not affect the accounting for loans under the scope of Subtopic 310-30 that are not accounted for within pools. Loans accounted for individually under Subtopic 310-30 continue to be subject to the troubled debt restructuring accounting provisions within Subtopic 310-40. The amendments in this Update are effective for modifications of loans accounted for within pools under Subtopic 310-30 occurring in the first interim or annual period ending on or after July 15, 2010. The Company expects the adoption of ASU 2010-18 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

In July 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-20 “Receivables (Topic 310): Disclosures about the Credit Quality of Financing Receivables and the Allowance for Credit Losses”. ASU 2010-20 improves the disclosures that an entity provides about the credit quality of its financing receivables and the related allowance for credit losses. As a result of these amendments, an entity is required to disaggregate by portfolio segment or class certain existing disclosures and provide certain new disclosures about its financing receivables and related allowance for credit losses. For public entities, the disclosures as of the end of a reporting period are effective for interim and annual reporting period ending on or after December 15, 2010. The disclosures about activity that occurs during a reporting period are effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning on or after December 15, 2010. The Company expects the adoption of ASU 2010-20 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial statements.

In August 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-21 “Accounting for Technical Amendments to Various SEC Rules and Schedules. Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to Release No. 33-9026: Technical Amendments to Rules, Forms, Schedules and Codification of Financial Reporting Policies”. ASU 2010-21 amends various SEC paragraphs pursuant to the issuance of Release No. 33-9026: Technical Amendments to Rules, Forms, Schedules and Codification of Financial Reporting Policies. The Company expects the adoption of ASU 2010-21 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial statements.

In August 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-22 “Accounting for Various Topics-Technical Corrections to SEC paragraphs (SEC Update)”. ASU 2010-22 amends various SEC paragraphs based on external comments received and the issuance of SAB 112, which amends or rescinds portions of certain SAB topics. The Company expects the adoption of ASU 2010-22 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial statements.

CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES.

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

Under the supervision and with the participation of our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, we conducted  an evaluation of the effectiveness, as of December 25, 2010, of  the  design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures, as such term is defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(e) and 15d-15(e). Based on this evaluation, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer have concluded that, as of such date, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective to ensure that information  required  to be disclosed  by us in our Exchange Act reports is recorded, processed, summarized, and reported within the time periods specified in the SEC’s rules and forms, and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, as appropriate to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure due to the void share issuance described elsewhere in this Annual Report on Form 10-K.

To enhance the control over share issuance, the Company had designed and implemented a new control point by assigning an accounting officer to check against the ledger of the authorized share capital upon issuance of new shares in the future to ensure that any new issuance will be properly arranged within the limit of the authorized share capital.

Management Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting, as such term is defined in Exchange Act Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f). Internal control over financial reporting refers to the process designed by, or under the supervision of, our principal executive officer and principal financial officer, and effected by our 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 generally accepted accounting principles, and includes those policies and procedures that:

(1)
Pertain to the maintenance of records that in reasonable detail accurately and fairly reflect the transactions and dispositions of our assets;

(2)
Provide reasonable assurance that transactions are recorded as necessary to permit preparation of financial statements in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles, and that our receipts and expenditures are being made only in accordance with authorization of our management and directors; and

(3)
Provide reasonable assurance regarding prevention or timely detection of unauthorized acquisitions, use or disposition of our assets that could have a material effect on the financial statements.

Internal control over financial reporting cannot provide absolute assurance of achieving financial reporting objectives because of its inherent limitations.  Internal control over financial reporting is a process that involves human diligence and compliance and is subject to lapses in judgment and breakdowns resulting from human failures. Internal control over financial reporting also can be circumvented by collusion or improper management override. Because of such limitations, 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. Management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting for the company.

Management has used the framework set forth in the report entitled Internal Control Integrated Framework published by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission, known as COSO, to evaluate the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting. Based on this assessment, our chief executive officer and chief financial officer concluded as of the Evaluation Date that, except for the void share issuance as described in Note 16, our internals control over financial reporting were effective.

To enhance the control over share issuance, the Company had designed and implemented a new control point by assigning an accounting officer to check against the ledger of the authorized share capital upon issuance of new shares in the future to ensure that any new issuance will be properly arranged within the limit of the authorized share capital.

Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There has been no change in our internal control over financial reporting during the fourth quarter of 2010 that has materially affected, or is reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

You can obtain a copy of the Code free of charge by sending a written request to the attention of Ms. Ling Wang, New Dragon Asia Corp., 10 Huangcheng Road (N), Longkou, Shandong Province, PRC.

Board Leadership Structure

Mr. Heng Jing Lu serves as the Chairman of the Board of Directors of our company.  Ms. Li Xia Wang serves as the Chief Executive Officer of our company.  We believe that the separation of the positions of principal executive officer and chairman of the board is in the best interest of our company and our stockholders because Mr. Lu focuses solely on board activities and oversees the management activities led by Ms. Wang, which is in line with the accepted corporate governance standards and practices.

Board Committees and Designated Directors

The Board of Directors has a Compensation Committee, a Nominating Committee and an Audit Committee.

Compensation Committee.   The Compensation Committee makes recommendations to the Board of Directors concerning salaries and incentive compensation for our officers, including our Chief Executive Officer, and employees and administers our stock option plans. Our Compensation Committee consists of Qi Xue, Feng Ju Chen and Zhi Yong Jiang. Compensation decisions during the fiscal year ended December 25, 2009 were made by all of the directors of the Committee. Each of the members of the Committee is independent and none has served as an officer or employee of the Company.

Nominating Committee.   Under the rules of NYSE Amex (on which our Class A Common Stock is listed for trading), nominees for our Board must be selected either by a nominating committee consisting entirely of independent directors or by a majority of the independent directors, acting pursuant to a standing resolution governing the nominating process. Given the size of our company and the significant committee responsibilities that many directors already have, we have chosen to assign this function to the independent directors rather than to a nominating committee. Consequently, our three independent directors, Qi Xue, Feng Ju Chen and Zhi Yong Jiang, are responsible for nominations. They act pursuant to a standing resolution. To date, the independent directors have not engaged any third parties to assist them in identifying candidates for the Board.

Among the tasks that our independent directors may undertake in this capacity are these:

-
Identifying and selecting those persons who will be nominees for director.
-
Considering factors relevant to the selection of nominees, including requirements of law, stock exchange listing standards, matters of character, judgment, business experience and areas of expertise, the diversity of the Board, and other factors.
-
Recruiting appropriate candidates when necessary, and reviewing the qualifications of any candidates nominated by shareholders.
-
Evaluating from time to time the size and composition of the Board and its committees.
-
Evaluating the function and performance of the Board and its directors.

There have been no material changes to the procedures by which security holders may recommend nominees to the Company’s board of directors.

Audit Committee.   The Audit Committee operates under a written charter. The Audit Committee consists of three directors, Qi Xue, Zhi Yong Jiang and Feng Ju Chen, each of whom meets the independence requirements and standards currently established by NYSE Amex and the SEC. In addition, the Board of Directors has determined that Mr. Qi Xue is an “audit committee financial expert” and “independent” as defined under the relevant rules of the SEC and NYSE Amex. The Audit Committee assists the Board of Directors in fulfilling its oversight of the quality and integrity of the Company’s financial statements and the Company’s compliance with legal and regulatory requirements. The Audit Committee is responsible for retaining (subject to stockholder ratification) and, as necessary, terminating, the independent auditors, annually reviewing the qualifications, performance and independence of the independent auditors and the audit plan, fees and audit results, and pre-approving audit and non-audit services to be performed by the auditors and related fees. The Audit Committee also oversees the performance of the Company’s internal audit and compliance functions.

Section 16(a) Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance

Section 16(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), requires our executive officers and directors and persons who own more than 10% of a registered class of our equity securities to file with the Securities and Exchange Commission initial statements of beneficial ownership, reports of changes in ownership and annual reports concerning their ownership of common stock and other of our equity securities, on Forms 3, 4 and 5 respectively. Based on Company records and other information, we believe that all SEC filing requirements applicable to our directors and executive officers were complied with for the fiscal year ended December 25, 2010.

Compensation of Directors

We do not provide cash or other compensation to our directors for their services as members of the Board or for attendance at Board or committee meetings.

ITEM 13.   CERTAIN RELATIONSHIPS AND RELATED TRANSACTIONS, AND DIRECTOR INDEPENDENCE.

Related Party Transactions

Parties are considered to be related if one party has the ability, directly or indirectly, to control the other party or exercise significant influence over the other party in making financial and operational decisions. Parties are also considered to be related if they are subject to common control or common significant influence.  For a summary of certain related party transactions, please refer to Note 17 of the Consolidated Financial Statements under the heading “Related Party Transactions” for significant details. The comprehensive summary of information required by Item 13 is set forth in our Proxy Statement under the caption “certain relationships and related transactions” and is incorporated herein by this reference.

Director Independence
 
The NYSE Amex marketplace rules (the “NYSE Amex Rules”) require that a majority of our Board of Directors must be “independent” and no director qualifies as independent until the Board makes an affirmative determination to that effect. In making this determination about a director, the Board must affirmatively conclude that the director does not have a material relationship with us that would interfere with the exercise of his or her independent judgment in carrying out the responsibilities of a director. Under the NYSE Amex Rules, the Board considered, among other factors, the director’s current and historic relationships with us and our competitors, suppliers, customers and auditors, including compensation directly or indirectly paid to the director; the director’s professional and family relationships with management and other directors; the relationships that the director’s current and former employers may have with us; and the relationships between us and other companies of which the director may be a director or executive officer. The NYSE Amex Rules require that the independent directors meet on a regular basis as often as necessary to fulfill their responsibilities, including at least annually in executive session.
 
As a result of this review, the Board has determined that the following directors, comprising a majority of the entire Board, are independent:  De Lin Yang, Qi Xue, Zhi Yong Jiang and Feng Ju Chen.

ITEM 14.   PRINCIPAL ACCOUNTANT FEES AND SERVICES.

Baker Tilly Hong Kong Limited (“BTHK”) was our independent accountants for the fiscal year ending December 25, 2009 and the period from December 26, 2009 through December 7, 2010. On December 8, 2010, the Audit Committee Chairman of the Company was notified that the auditor-client relationship between the Company and BTHK had ceased due to BTHK’s resignation. The Audit Committee engaged Parker Randall CF (H.K.) CPA Limited. (“Parker Randall”) to serve as its independent auditor, effective March 17, 2011.

Public Accountants’ fees

For fiscal years ended December 25, 2010 and 2009, fees for services provided by BKHK were as follows:

   
2010
   
2009
 
Audit Fees
  $ 49,500     $ 120,000  
Audit Related Fees
    -       -  
Tax Fees
    -       -  
All other fees
    -       -  

For fiscal year ended December 25, 2010, fees for services provided by Parker Randall were as follows:

   
2010
         
Audit Fees
  $ 115,500          
Audit Related Fees
    -          
Tax Fees
    -          
All other fees
    -          

Audit Fees were for professional services rendered for the audit of the Company’s annual financial statements, the review of quarterly financial statements, and the preparation of statutory and regulatory filings. Audit-Related Fees relate to professional services rendered in connection with accounting consultations relating to SEC reviews on filings. Tax fees consist of fees billed for professional services for tax compliance, tax planning and tax advice. These services include assistance regarding federal, state and international tax compliance and planning, tax audit defense, and mergers and acquisitions.

Pre-Approval Policies and Procedures

In accordance with the SEC’s auditor independence rules, the Audit Committee has established the following policies and procedures by which it approves in advance any audit or permissible non-audit services to be provided to the Company by its independent auditor.

Prior to the engagement of the independent auditor for any fiscal year’s audit, management submits to the Audit Committee for approval lists of recurring audit, audit-related, tax and other services expected to be provided by the auditor during that fiscal year. The Audit Committee adopts pre-approval schedules describing the recurring services that it has pre-approved, and is informed on a timely basis, and in any event by the next scheduled meeting, of any such services rendered by the independent auditor and the related fees.

 
20

 

The fees for any services listed in a pre-approval schedule are budgeted, and the Audit Committee requires the independent auditor and management to report actual fees versus the budget periodically throughout the year. The Audit Committee will require additional pre-approval if circumstances arise where it becomes necessary to engage the independent auditor for additional services above the amount of fees originally pre-approved. Any audit or non-audit service not listed in a pre-approval schedule must be separately pre-approved by the Audit Committee on a case-by-case basis.Every request to adopt or amend a pre-approval schedule or to provide services that are not listed in a pre-approval schedule must include a statement by the independent auditors as to whether, in their view, the request is consistent with the SEC’s rules on auditor independence.

The Audit Committee will not grant approval for:
-
any services prohibited by applicable law or by any rule or regulation of the SEC or other regulatory body applicable to the Company;
-
provision by the independent auditor to the Company of strategic consulting services of the type typically provided by management consulting firms; or
-
the retention of the independent auditor in connection with a transaction initially recommended by the independent auditor, the tax treatment of which may not be clear under the Internal Revenue Code and related regulations and which it is reasonable to conclude will be subject to audit procedures during an audit of the Company’s financial statements.

Tax services proposed to be provided by the auditor to any director, officer or employee of the Company who is in an accounting role or financial reporting oversight role must be approved by the Audit Committee on a case-by-case basis where such services are to be paid for by the Company, and the Audit Committee will be informed of any services to be provided to such individuals that are not to be paid for by the Company.

In determining whether to grant pre-approval of any non-audit services in the “all other” category, the Audit Committee will consider all relevant facts and circumstances, including the following four basic guidelines:

-
whether the service creates a mutual or conflicting interest between the auditor and the Company;
-
whether the service places the auditor in the position of auditing his or her own work;
-
whether the service results in the auditor acting as management or an employee of the Company; and
-
whether the service places the auditor in a position of being an advocate for the Company.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT REGISTERED PUBLIC ACCOUNTING FIRM

To the Stockholders and Board of Directors
New Dragon Asia Corp. and Subsidiaries

We have audited the accompanying consolidated balance sheet of New Dragon Asia Corp. and Subsidiaries (the “Company”) as of December 25, 2010 and the related consolidated statements of operations, stockholders’ equity and comprehensive income and cash flows for the year then ended. These consolidated financial statements are the responsibility of the Company’s management. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these consolidated financial statements based on our audits.

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 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 audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the 2010 consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of New Dragon Asia Corp. and Subsidiaries as of December 25, 2010, and the consolidated results of their operations and their cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

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 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 audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the 2009 consolidated financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the consolidated financial position of New Dragon Asia Corp. and Subsidiaries as of December 25, 2009, and the consolidated results of their operations and their cash flows for the year then ended in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

NOTE 2. BASIS OF PRESENTATION

The consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of New Dragon Asia Corp. and all of its wholly and majority owned subsidiaries (Note 1).  Intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

Accounting Standards Codification (“ASC”) Topic 810, “Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities” (formerly Standards of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) 167, “Amendments to FASB Interpretation No. 46(R))”  an investor with a majority of the variable interests (primary beneficiary) in a variable interest entity (“VIE”) to consolidate the entity.  A VIE is an entity in which the voting equity investors do not have a controlling financial interest or the equity investment at risk is insufficient to finance the entity’s activities without receiving additional subordinated financial support from other parties. VIEs are required to be consolidated by their primary beneficiaries if they do not effectively disperse risks among the parties involved.  The primary beneficiary of a VIE is the party that absorbs a majority of the entity’s expected losses or receives a majority of its expected residual returns.  The Company has completed a review of its investments in both non-marketable and marketable equity interests as well as other arrangements to determine whether it is the primarily beneficiary of any VIEs.  The review did not identify any VIEs.

The consolidated financial statements have been prepared in accordance with ASC Topic 810.  These Consolidated Financial Statements for interim periods are unaudited.  In the opinion of management, the consolidated financial statements include all adjustments, consisting only of normal, recurring adjustments, necessary for their fair presentation.  The results reported in these Consolidated Financial Statements are not necessarily indicative of the results that may be reported for the entire year.  The preparation of financial statements in conformity with ASC Topic 810 requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period.  The Company regularly evaluates estimates and assumptions related to allowances for doubtful accounts, sales returns and allowance, and inventory reserves. Although management believes these estimates and assumptions are adequate and reasonable under the circumstances, actual results could differ from those estimates.

NOTE 3. SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

Revenue recognition

The Company recognizes sales in accordance with the United States ASC Topic 605, “Revenue Recognition” (formerly Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) Staff Accounting Bulletin (“SAB”) 104, “Revenue Recognition”).  The Company recognizes revenue when the following fundamental criteria are met:  (i) persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, (ii) delivery has occurred or services have been rendered, (iii) the price to the customer is fixed or determinable and (iv) collection of the resulting receivable is reasonably assured.  Revenue is not recognized until title and risk of loss is transferred to the customer, which occurs upon delivery of goods, and objective evidence exists that customer acceptance provisions have been met.  Provisions for discounts and returns are provided for at the time the related sales are recorded, and are reflected as a reduction of sales. The Company bases its estimates on historical experience taking into consideration the type of products sold, the type of customer, and the type of specific transaction in each arrangement.  Revenues represent the invoiced value of goods, net of value added tax (“VAT”).
 
 
F-9

 
 
The Company does not offer promotional payments, customer coupons, rebates or other cash redemption offers to its customers.

All of the Company’s sales made in Mainland China are subject to the Mainland Chinese value-added tax at rates ranging from 13% to 17% (“output VAT”).  Such output VAT is payable after offsetting VAT paid by the Company on purchases (“input VAT”).

Deposits or advance payments from customers prior to delivery of goods and passage of title of goods are recorded as deposits from customers.

Cash and cash equivalents

The Company considers cash on hand, deposits in banks, and short-term investments purchased with an original maturity date of three months or less to be cash and cash equivalents.

Accounting for Derivative Instruments

Derivatives are recorded on the Company’s balance sheet at fair value. These derivatives, including embedded derivatives in the Company’s Series A and B Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock are separately valued and accounted for on the Company’s balance sheet.

The Company has determined that the conversion features of its redeemable convertible preferred stock and warrants to purchase common stock are derivatives that the Company is required to account for as if they were free-standing instruments. The Company has also determined that it is required to designate these derivatives as liabilities in its financial statements. As a result, the Company reports the value of these embedded derivatives as current liabilities on its balance sheet and reports changes in the value of these derivatives as non-operating gains or losses on its statement of operations. The value of the derivatives is required to be recalculated (and resulting non-operating gains or losses reflected in the statement of operations and resulting adjustments to the associated liability amounts reflected on the balance sheet) on a quarterly basis, and is based on the market value of the Company’s common stock. Due to the nature of the required calculations and the large number of shares of the Company’s common stock involved in such calculations, changes in the Company’s common stock price may result in significant changes in the value of the derivatives and resulting gains and losses on the Company’s statement of operations.

The pricing models the Company uses for determining fair values of its derivatives are a combination of the Black-Scholes and Binomial Pricing Models. Valuations derived from this model are subject to ongoing internal and external review. The model uses market-sourced inputs such as interest rates and option volatilities. Selection of these inputs involves management’s judgment and may impact net earnings. The Company has obtained a valuation report from a valuation firm to support its estimates as of December 25, 2010 and 2009.

The consolidated financial statements also reflect additional non-operating gains and losses related to the classification of and accounting for: (1) the conversion features of the Series A and B Preferred Stock and associated warrants, (2) the amortization associated with the discount recorded with respect to the Series A and B Preferred Stock as a preferred stock dividend, and (3) the conversion features associated with the preferred stock issued by the Company and associated warrants.
 
Fair Value of Financial Instruments

The Company adopted ASC Topic 820, “Fair Value Measurements and Disclosure” (formerly SFAS 157, “Fair Value Measurements”) on January 1, 2008 to account for and record fair values of financial instruments. This ASC establishes a framework for measuring fair value, and expands disclosures about fair value measurements.  The ASC establishes a fair value hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value into three levels as follows:

Level 1 -
quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical asset or liabilities that the Company has the ability to access as of the measurement date. Financial assets and liabilities utilizing Level 1 inputs include active exchange-traded securities and exchange-based derivatives.
 
 
F-10

 
 
Level 2 -
inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are directly observable for the asset or liability or indirectly observable through corroboration with observable market data. Financial assets and liabilities utilizing Level 2 inputs include fixed income securities, non-exchange-based derivatives, mutual funds, and fair-value hedges.

Level 3 -
unobservable inputs for the asset or liability only used when there is little, if any, market activity for the asset or liability at the measurement date. Financial assets and liabilities utilizing Level 3 inputs include infrequently-traded, non-exchange-based derivatives and commingled investment funds, and are measured using present value pricing models.

The Company determines the level in the fair value hierarchy within which each fair value measurement in its entirety falls, based on the lowest level input that is significant to the fair value measurement in its entirety.

The following table presents the embedded derivatives, the Company’s only financial liabilities measured and recorded at fair value on the Company’s Consolidated Balance Sheets on a recurring basis and its level within the fair value hierarchy during the years ended December 25, 2010 and 2009:

The carrying amounts for cash and cash equivalents, accounts receivable, deposits and prepayments, accounts payable, shareholder and joint venture partner debts, and other payables and accruals approximate their fair values because of their nature and respective duration.

Accounts receivable

Accounts receivable is stated at cost, net of an allowance for doubtful accounts. The Company provides for an allowance for doubtful accounts for those third party trade accounts that are not collected within one year.

Financial instruments, which potentially subject the Company to concentration of credit risk, consist primarily of trade receivables. However, concentrations of credit risk are limited due to the large number of customers comprising the Company’s customer base and their dispersion across different businesses and geographic areas. The Company monitors its exposure to credit losses and maintains an allowance for anticipated losses. Such losses have been estimated and recorded at $4,609 and $1,551 for the years ended December 25, 2010 and 2009. To reduce credit risk, the Company performs periodic credit valuations of its customers.

Inventories valuation

Inventories are stated at the lower of cost, determined on a weighted average basis, or net realizable value. Costs of work-in-progress and finished goods are composed of direct material, direct labor and an attributable portion of manufacturing overhead. Net realizable value is the estimated selling price, in the ordinary course of business, less estimated costs to complete and dispose.

Property, machinery and equipment

Property, machinery and equipment are stated at cost, less accumulated depreciation and amortization.  Depreciation and amortization is computed using the straight-line method over the estimated useful lives of the related assets that range from 5 to 50 years.  Leasehold improvements are amortized using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life of the asset or the term of the lease, whichever is shorter.  Costs for normal repairs and maintenance are expensed to operations as incurred, while renewals and major refurbishments are capitalized.

The Company accounts for long-lived assets, such as property, machinery and equipment and purchased intangible assets with finite lives, in accordance with ASC Topic 360-10, “Impairment or Disposal of Long Lived Assets” (formerly SFAS 144, “Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets”), which requires impairment losses to be recorded on long-lived assets used in operations when indications of impairment are present. Determination of recoverability is based on an estimate of undiscounted future cash follows resulting from the use of the asset and its eventual disposition. Measurement of any impairment loss for long-lived assets that management expects to hold and use is based on the amount the carrying value exceeds the fair value of the assets.

Assessments of whether there has been a permanent impairment in the value of property, machinery and equipment are periodically performed by considering factors such as expected future operating income, trends and prospects, as well as the effects of demand, competition and other economic factors.  The Company has made adequate provision for the impairment occurred as of December 25, 2010.

Land use rights

Land use rights are stated at cost, less accumulated amortization. Amortization is computed using the straight-line method over the contractual lives ranging from 27 to 50 years.

Income taxes

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, “Income Taxes” (formerly SFAS 109, “Accounting for Income Taxes” and FIN 48 “Uncertainty in Income Taxes”). Under this method, deferred income taxes are recognized for the estimated tax consequences in future years of differences between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their financial reporting amounts and each year-end based on enacted tax laws and statutory rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized when, in management’s opinion; it is more likely than not that some portion of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. The provision for income taxes represents current taxes payable net of the change during the period in deferred tax assets and liabilities. The Company accounts, for uncertainty in tax positions, under the requirement of ASC 740.

Operating leases

Operating leases represent those leases under which substantially all the risks and rewards of ownership of the leased assets remain with the lessors. Rental payments under operating leases are charged to expense on the straight-line basis over the period of the leases.

Comprehensive Income

The Company  reports and displays comprehensive income and its components in the consolidated financial statements. Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) includes foreign currency translation adjustments.

Foreign currency translation

The functional currency of the Company is the Chinese Renminbi. However, the Company reports in U.S. dollars.  The financial statements of the Company’s foreign subsidiaries have been translated into U.S. dollars in accordance with ASC Topic 830-20, “Foreign Currency Transactions” (formerly SFAS 52, “Foreign Currency Translation”). All asset and liability accounts have been translated using the exchange rate in effect at the balance sheet date.  Equity accounts have been translated at their historical exchange rates when the capital transaction occurred. Statements of Operations amounts have been translated using the average exchange rate for the year. At December 25, 2010, the revenues and expenses of the Company were translated to U.S. dollars based on an average rate of US$1.00 = RMB 6.7721 and the assets and liabilities of the Company maintained in Renminbi translated to U.S. dollars at US$1.00 = RMB 6.6371. The foreign currency translation adjustment of $15,418 and $13,405 have been reported as comprehensive income in the consolidated statement of stockholders’ equity and comprehensive income for 2010 and 2009.

Although the Chinese government regulations now allow convertibility of RMB for current account transactions, significant restrictions still remain.  Hence, such translations should not be construed as representations that RMB could be converted into U.S. dollars at that rate or any other rate.

Substantially all our revenue and expenses are denominated in RMB.  Our RMB cash inflows are sufficient to service our RMB obligations.  For financial reporting purposes, we use U.S. dollars.  The value of RMB against U.S. dollars and other currencies may fluctuate and is affected by, among other things, changes in China’s political and economic conditions.  Any significant revaluation of RMB may materially affect our financial condition in terms of U.S. dollar reporting.

Earnings per share

The Company computes earnings per share (“EPS’) in accordance with ASC Topic 260, “Earnings per Share” (formerly SFAS 128, “Earnings per Share”).  Companies with complex capital structures are required to present basic and diluted EPS.  Basic EPS is measured as the income or loss available to common shareholders divided by the weighted average common shares outstanding for the period.  Diluted EPS is similar to basic EPS but presents the dilutive effect on a per share basis of potential common shares (e.g., convertible securities, options and warrants) as if they had been converted at the beginning of the periods presented, or issuance date, if later.  Potential common shares that have an anti-dilutive effect (i.e., those that increase income per share or decrease loss per share) are excluded from the calculation of diluted EPS. Approximately 28,953 of voided shares and shares on an “as converted” basis for the Redeemable Convertible Preferred stock are potential dilutive shares at December 25, 2010, which were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share since their effect would have been anti-dilutive. The voided shares represent shares from conversions of Redeemable Convertible Preferred stock during the year that exceeded the Companies authorized shares.  Approximately 27,091 dilutive shares on an “as converted” basis for the Redeemable Convertible Preferred stock for the year ended December 25, 2009 were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share since their effect would have been anti-dilutive.

Warrants to purchase totaling 6,126,645 shares of Class A Common Stock at weighted average exercise price $1.3889 per share were outstanding as of December 25, 2010, but were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share because the effects of stock warrants and stock options were anti-dilutive. Warrants to purchase totaling 6,482,895 shares of Class A Common Stock at weighted average exercise price $1.4093 per share and options to purchase totaling 6,000,000 shares of Class A Common Stock at weighted average exercise price $1.82 per share were outstanding as of December 25, 2009, but were excluded from the calculation of diluted earnings per share because the effects of stock warrants and stock options were anti-dilutive.

The calculation of diluted weighted average common shares outstanding for the year ended December 25, 2010 and 2009 is based on the average of the closing price of the Company’s common stock during such periods applied to warrants and options using the treasury stock method to determine if they are dilutive. The Redeemable Convertible Preferred stock is included on an “as converted “basis when these shares are dilutive.

The following table is a reconciliation of the weighted average shares used in the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share for the periods presented (amounts in thousands, except per share data):

Stock-Based Compensation

The Company accounts for Stock Based Compensation  by  measuring  the cost of services received in exchange for an award of equity instruments based on the grant-date fair value of the award. For stock options, the Company used the Black-Scholes option-pricing model to estimate the fair value of the options at the date of grant.

Recent accounting pronouncements

In January 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-2, “Accounting and Reporting for Decreases in Ownership of a Subsidiary- a Scope Clarification”. ASU 2010-2 addresses implementation issues related to the changes in ownership provisions in the Consolidation—Overall Subtopic (Subtopic 810-10) of the FASB ASC, originally issued as SFAS 160, “Noncontrolling Interests in Consolidated Financial Statements”. Subtopic 810-10 establishes the accounting and reporting guidance for noncontrolling interests and changes in ownership interests of a subsidiary. An entity is required to deconsolidate a subsidiary when the entity ceases to have a controlling financial interest in the subsidiary. Upon deconsolidation of a subsidiary, an entity recognizes a gain or loss on the transaction and measures any retained investment in the subsidiary at fair value. The gain or loss includes any gain or loss associated with the difference between the fair value of the retained investment in the subsidiary and its carrying amount at the date the subsidiary is deconsolidated. In contrast, an entity is required to account for a decrease in ownership interest of a subsidiary that does not result in a change of control of the subsidiary as an equity transaction. ASU 2010-2 is effective for the Company starting January 3, 2010. The adoption of ASU 2010-2 will not have a material impact on the Company's results of operations or financial position.

In January 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-6, “Improving Disclosures about Fair Measurements". ASU 2010-6 provides amendments to subtopic 820-10 that require separate disclosure of significant transfers into and out of Level 1 and Level 2 fair value measurements and the presentation of separate information regarding purchases, sales, issuances and settlements on a gross basis in the reconciliation of Level 3 fair value measurements. Additionally, ASU 2010-6 provides amendments to subtopic 820-10 that clarify existing disclosures about the level of disaggregation and inputs and valuation techniques. ASU 2010-6 is effective for financial statements issued for annual reporting periods after beginning after December 15, 2009, except for Level 3 reconciliation disclosures which are effective for annual periods beginning December 15, 2010. The adoption of ASU 2010-06 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

In February 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-9 “Subsequent Events (Topic 855) Amendments to Certain Recognition and Disclosure Requirements”. ASU 2010-9 amends disclosure requirements within Subtopic 855-10. An entity that is an SEC filer is not required to disclose the date through which subsequent events have been evaluated. This change alleviates potential conflicts between Subtopic 855-10 and the SEC's requirements. ASU 2010-9 is effective for interim and annual periods ending after June 15, 2010. The adoption of ASU 2010-06 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

In March 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-11 “Derivatives and Hedging (Topic 815) Scope Exception Related to Embedded Credit Derivatives”. ASU 2010-11 clarifies the type of embedded credit derivative that is exempt from embedded derivative bifurcation requirements. Only one form of embedded credit derivative qualifies for the exemption—one that is related only to the subordination of one financial instrument to another. As a result, entities that have contracts containing an embedded credit derivative feature in a form other than such subordination may need to separately account for the embedded credit derivative feature. The amendments in this Update are effective for each reporting entity at the beginning of its first fiscal quarter beginning after June 15, 2010. Early adoption is permitted at the beginning of each entity’s first fiscal quarter beginning after issuance of this Update. The adoption of ASU 2010-11 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

In April 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-13 “Compensation-Stock Compensation (Topic 718) Effect of Denominating the Exercise Price of a Share-Based Payment Award in the Currency of the Market in Which the Underlying Equity Security Trades”. ASU 2010-13 addresses the classification of a share-based payment award with an exercise price denominated in the currency of a market in which the underlying equity security trades. Topic 718 is amended to clarify that a share-based payment award with an exercise price denominated in the currency of a market in which a substantial portion of the entity’s equity securities trades shall not be considered to contain a market, performance, or service condition. Therefore, such an award is not to be classified as a liability if it otherwise qualifies as equity classification. The amendments in this Update should be effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those fiscal years, beginning on or after December 15, 2010. The guidance should be applied by recording a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings for all outstanding awards as of the beginning of the fiscal year in which the amendments are initially applied. The Company expects the adoption of ASU 2010-13 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

In April 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-18Effect of a Loan Modification When the Loan Is Part of a Pool That Is Accounted for as a Single Asset (A consensus of the FASB Emerging Issues Task)”. ASU 2010-18 clarifies that modifications of loans that are accounted for within a pool under Subtopic 310-30, which provides guidance on accounting for acquired loans that have evidence of credit deterioration upon acquisition, do not result in the removal of those loans from the pool even if the modification would otherwise be considered a troubled debt restructuring. An entity will continue to be required to consider whether the pool of assets in which the loan is included is impaired if expected cash flows for the pool change. The amendments do not affect the accounting for loans under the scope of Subtopic 310-30 that are not accounted for within pools. Loans accounted for individually under Subtopic 310-30 continue to be subject to the troubled debt restructuring accounting provisions within Subtopic 310-40. The amendments in this Update are effective for modifications of loans accounted for within pools under Subtopic 310-30 occurring in the first interim or annual period ending on or after July 15, 2010. The Company expects the adoption of ASU 2010-18 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial position.

In July 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-20 “Receivables (Topic 310): Disclosures about the Credit Quality of Financing Receivables and the Allowance for Credit Losses”. ASU 2010-20 improves the disclosures that an entity provides about the credit quality of its financing receivables and the related allowance for credit losses. As a result of these amendments, an entity is required to disaggregate by portfolio segment or class certain existing disclosures and provide certain new disclosures about its financing receivables and related allowance for credit losses. For public entities, the disclosures as of the end of a reporting period are effective for interim and annual reporting period ending on or after December 15, 2010. The disclosures about activity that occurs during a reporting period are effective for interim and annual reporting periods beginning on or after December 15, 2010. The Company expects the adoption of ASU 2010-20 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial statements.

In August 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-21 “Accounting for Technical Amendments to Various SEC Rules and Schedules. Amendments to SEC Paragraphs Pursuant to Release No. 33-9026: Technical Amendments to Rules, Forms, Schedules and Codification of Financial Reporting Policies”. ASU 2010-21 amends various SEC paragraphs pursuant to the issuance of Release No. 33-9026: Technical Amendments to Rules, Forms, Schedules and Codification of Financial Reporting Policies. The Company expects the adoption of ASU 2010-21 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial statements.

In August 2010, FASB issued ASU 2010-22 “Accounting for Various Topics-Technical Corrections to SEC paragraphs (SEC Update)”. ASU 2010-22 amends various SEC paragraphs based on external comments received and the issuance of SAB 112, which amends or rescinds portions of certain SAB topics. The Company expects the adoption of ASU 2010-22 will not have a material impact on the Company’s results of operations or financial statements.
