Fiscal Year 2013 Results

Revenues

Gross revenues were $9,369,901 and $3,550,674 for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The Company generated revenues from sales of fresh fruits and related products, including its signature tangerine. The revenues are recognized when persuasive evidence of a sale exists, transfer of title has occurred, the selling price is fixed or determinable and collectability is reasonably assured. The Company's sales arrangements are not subject to warranty. The Company did not record any product returns during the year ended December 31, 2013.

The increase in revenues by $5,819,227 during the year ended December 31, 2013 was due primarily to increasing traffic in its retail stores. After its efforts on marketing and brand recognition over years, more and more local customers know about its stores and turn into its regular customers. The sales in retail stores increased approximately 28% in 2013. In addition, the fund from shareholders gave us sufficient cash flow to develop international markets, including Thailand, Dubai, Malaysia and so on. The revenues generated from these three countries in 2013 were approximately $6,000,000, $236,540 and $36,736, or approximately 68%, 2.5% and 0.4% of total revenues, respectively.

Retail Stores Network

As of December 31, 2013, the Company had seven franchise retail stores in Beijing area, of which two stores are wholly owned by the Company under direct management, and five stores are managed by the franchisees. In 2014, the company will continue to evaluate the operation in the existing stores and replace those in poor performance with new stores.

After several years' experience in operating franchise retail stores, the Company believes 2014 is the right timing to expand its retail stores network. The Company expects the total number of franchise stores to be increased to sixty four via acquisitions by the end of 2014.

Net Income

The Company had net income of $166,622 for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to net loss of $88,016 in the year of 2012. The net income during the year of 2013 was also due to the grants received from the local government in amount of $409,160, which was to encourage the Company's efforts on modern agricultural development. Without the government grant, the Company suffered loss of $143,124 from operations.

Expenses

Operating expenses for the years ended December 31, 2013 and 2012 were $2,114,426 and $1,516,430, respectively. The increase in operating expenses in 2013 was attributable to the increase in selling and marketing expenses, such as advertising, shipping and handling, and exhibition expenses, etc.

Cost of Goods Sold

Cost of goods sold included expenses directly related to the manufacturing and selling its products. Product delivery and direct labor would be examples of cost of goods sold items. During the year ended December 31, 2013, the Company had $7,286,184 in cost of goods sold, or 77.8% of sales revenues. During the year ended December 31, 2012, the Company had $3,065,050 in cost of goods sold, or 86.3% of sales revenues. The gross margin of fresh fruits products typically ranges between 5-10%.

Liquidity and Capital Resource

As of December 31, 2013, China Fruits had $40,217 in cash and cash equivalents. Cash flows used in operating activities were $599,157 for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared to cash flows of $865,680 provided by operating activities for the year ended December 31, 2012. Negative cash flows from operations in 2013 were due primarily to the increase in accounts receivable, inventories, prepaid expenses and advance to suppliers in the amount of $3,589,453, $1,455,726, $156,215 and $597,458, respectively, partially offset by the net income of $166,622, plus the increase in accounts payable and other payables and accrued liabilities in amount of $4,151,415 and $479,903, respectively.

Business Outlook

In 2014, the Company expects sales to increase as its moves toward implementing its business plan, including the increase in franchise retail stores, the increase in marketing budgets. The Company will evaluate the operation in the existing stores and replace those in poor performance with new stores. After several years' experience in operating franchise retail stores, the Company believes 2014 is the right timing to expand its retail stores network and expects the total number of franchise stores to be increased to sixty four via acquisitions by the end of 2014. The Company anticipates that it will need an additional $1,000,000 for the year of 2014.
