Financial Review for the Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2021

Wealth Management

  • Since fiscal year ended June 30, 2017, Puhui’s core business has been the marketing of financial products to HNW clients and small and medium enterprises in China. As a growing independent wealth management service provider, the Company maintains a sizable client base, consisting of 138 clients as of June 30, 2021 (54 of which have purchased products the Company markets more than once). This compares to 1,106 clients as of June 30, 2020, with 495 purchasing products more than once.

Asset Management

  • Starting in June 2017, Puhui also launched its in-house asset management business. As of June 30, 2021, the Company’s subsidiaries served as manager or general partner of five funds with an aggregate of approximately $16.7 million under management, compared to approximately $21.6 million under management as of June 30, 2020.

Revenues

  • The Company categorizes revenues into third-party revenues and related-party revenues. Revenues mainly include one-time commissions, recurring services fees and recurring management fees. Related party revenues consist primarily of one-time commission fees charged for affiliates or recurring management fees received from fund/limited partnership where the Company’s subsidiaries serve as manager or general partner.
  • Total revenues were approximately $2.0 million for the year ended June 30, 2021, compared to approximately $2.2 million in the prior year, a decrease of approximately $0.2 million. The overall decline was mainly due to the decrease in one-time commissions as a result of the decrease in the aggregate value of wealth management products distributed. Puhui’s customers were negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, which reduced their budgets for investment in 2021.

Cost of Revenues

  • Puhui’s cost of revenues consists of compensation paid to financial product development team members along with benefits. The Company’s cost of revenues were $260,358 and $202,637 for the years ended June 30, 2021 and 2020, respectively, an increase of $57,721. The increase was mainly due to the increase in salary of product development team.

Operating Expense

  • The Company’s operating expenses decreased to approximately $6.0 million from approximately $6.7 million in the prior year, a decrease of approximately $0.7 million, largely due to a decrease in selling expenses. The decrease in selling expenses was mainly due to the decrease in salaries and rent as the Company closed several of its sales offices in fiscal year 2021 which reduced headcount in selling department due to inability to carry out marketing functions during the pandemic.

Net Loss Attributable to Puhui Wealth

  • Net loss attributable to Puhui Wealth for the year ended June 30, 2021 was approximately $4.7 million, or $(0.41) per basic and diluted share based on 11.5 million weighted average number of ordinary shares, as compared to net loss of approximately $4.0 million, or $(0.35) per basic and diluted share based on 11.5 million weighted average number of ordinary shares for the year ended June 30, 2020.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

  • The Company historically financed its operations primarily through cash flows from operations, capital contributions from shareholders, long term debt, and initial public offering. Based on its current revenue and expense projection, the Company believes it will generate approximately the same or similar amount of revenue in the coming year as compared to the current year as the Company and China are both recovering from the impact of the pandemic. If the Company’s revenue does not achieve its expected level, management plans to implement cost saving measures to reduce operating cash outflow.
  • As of June 30, 2021, the Company had cash of approximately $0.6 million, as compared to approximately $0.7 million as of June 30, 2020.
  • As of June 30, 2021, the Company had approximately $0.5 million in working capital deficit.
