Mercurity Fintech Holding Inc. Announces Unaudited First Half of 2020 Financial Results

BEIJING, Sept. 3, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Mercurity Fintech Holding Inc. (the "Company" or "MFH") (Nasdaq: MFH) today announced its unaudited financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2020.

First Half of 2020 Financial and Operating Highlights

All comparisons are made on a year-over-year basis.

  • Total revenues increased to $1,392 thousand from $30 thousand.
  • Gross profit increased to $1,313 thousand from negative $8 thousand.
  • Net loss decreased to $305 thousand from $1,505 thousand.

Ms. Hua Zhou, Chairperson of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased with the operating results of our first half year. We have increased our revenues to $1.4 million, with a non-GAAP operating income of $0.53 million. Due to the uncertainty as a result of global pandemic and new product development, the Company will not provide a financial forecast for the second half of 2020. The digital assets industry has tremendous opportunity, and we are looking forward to capturing the opportunity of the market growth."

FINANCIAL RESULTS

For the Six Months Ended June 30, 2020:

Revenues were $1,392 thousand in the first half of 2020, an increase from $30 thousand in the first half of 2019. The revenues for the first half of 2020 were generated mainly from software update and maintenance services provided to a customer of our blockchain-based digital asset infrastructure solutions business. The software update project was completed in the first half of 2020.     

On May 21, 2019, the Company acquired Mercurity Limited (formerly known as Unicorn Investment Limited) and its subsidiaries to engage in the blockchain-based digital asset infrastructure solutions business and on July 22, 2019 divested the B2B food supply chain business. The $30 thousand revenues generated in the first half of 2019 consisted mainly of the software maintenance fees earned for the period from May 21 to June 30, 2019.

Cost of revenues were $79 thousand for the first half of 2020 associated with the new blockchain-based digital asset infrastructure solutions business, compared to $38 thousand in the same period of last year primarily associated with the new business for the period from May 21 to June 30, 2019.

Gross profit for the first half of 2020 was $1,313 thousand, compared to negative $8 thousand in the same period of last year.

General and administrative expenses increased to $756 thousand for the first half of 2020, compared to $76 thousand in the same period of last year. The general and administrative expenses consist primarily of the staff costs, office expenses and professional fees. The increase in general and administrative expenses primarily reflected (i) the increases in staff costs and office expenses as a result of our acquisition of NBpay Investment Limited in March 2020, and (ii) the staff costs and office expenses incurred associated with business of Mercurity Limited during the six-month period in 2020 compared to those incurred for the period from May 21 to June 30, 2019 after the Company acquired Mercurity Limited.

Impairment loss for the first half of 2020 was $835 thousand due to a decrease in fair value of digital assets the Company held. The Company did not incur such loss in the same period of last year.

Loss from operations in the first half of 2020 was $278 thousand generated compared to a loss from operations of $84 thousand in the same period of last year. Without the intangible asset impairment, the Company had a net operating income of $530 thousand.

Loss before provision for income taxes in the first half of 2020 was $305 thousand compared to a loss before provision for income taxes of $84 thousand in the same period of last year.

Non-GAAP net (loss)/income attributable to Mercurity Fintech Holding Inc. is a non-GAAP measure which excludes amortization of acquired intangible assets, impairment loss, share-based compensation, and related provision for income tax expenses. Non-GAAP net income attributable to Mercurity Fintech Holding Inc. was $530 thousand in the first half of 2020 and non-GAAP net loss attributable to Mercurity Fintech Holding Inc. was $1,658 thousand in the same period of last year.

Cash and cash equivalents were $388 thousand as of June 30, 2020, compared to $435 thousand as of December 31, 2019. Total shareholders' equity as of June 30, 2020 was $11.3 million, compared to total shareholders' equity of $8.0 million as of December 31, 2019.

Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S.GAAP"), the Company uses non-GAAP financial measures, including Non-GAAP (loss)/income from continuing operations and Non-GAAP net (loss)/income attributable to the Company, that are adjusted from results based on U.S. GAAP to exclude amortization of acquired intangible assets, impairment loss, share-based compensation and related provision for income tax expenses. The non-GAAP financial information is provided as additional information to help investors compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and to enhance investors' overall understanding of the historical and current financial performance of the Company's operations and prospects for the future. The non-GAAP financial information should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, but should not be considered a substitute for or superior to U.S. GAAP financial results. In addition, the Company's calculation of this non-GAAP financial information may be different from the calculation used by other companies, and therefore comparability may be limited. A limitation of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that amortization of acquired intangible assets, impairment of goodwill, share-based compensation and related provision for income tax benefits have been and may continue to be for the foreseeable future significant recurring expenses in the Company's results of operations. The Company compensates for these limitations by providing reconciliations of non-GAAP financial measures to U.S. GAAP financial measures. Please see the reconciliation tables at the end of this earnings release.

BUSINESS OUTLOOK

Due to the uncertainty as a result of global pandemic and new product development, the Company will not provide a financial forecast for the 2nd half of 2020.
