  • Revenue increased by 3.3% to $5.87 million for 2020, primarily attributable to the improvement of our commission rate in 2020.
  • Operating expenses increased by 5.8% to $5.63 million for 2020. The increase was primarily related to an increase in payroll expenses that offset the decrease in selling expenses, professional fees, operating lease expense, and other general and administrative expenses.
  • Operating profit margin was 4.1% for 2020, compared to 6.3% for the same period of last year.
  • Net income was $0.25 million for 2020, compared to $0.30 million for the same period of last year.
  • Net income attributable to MDJH ordinary shareholders was $0.26 million, or earnings per share of $0.02, for 2020, compared to $0.45 million, or earnings per share of $0.04, for the same period of last year.

Mr. Siping Xu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, “With revenue increasing by 3.3% year-over-year, our full-year 2020 financial results underscore continued strength in our primary real estate agency services business despite the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on our operations and the overall economy. However, our profit margin and net income decreased as a result of the increased operating expenses. We continued our planned geographical expansion, with Chengdu, Suzhou, and Yangzhou markets contributing 35% of our total revenue in 2020, while closely monitoring opportunities entering into other geographic markets. Looking ahead, we are cautiously optimistic about 2021 as the Chinese economy, particularly its housing market, recovers from the pandemic.”

Selling expenses decreased by $0.09 million, or 49.0%, to $0.10 million for 2020 from $0.19 million for the same period of last year. The decrease in selling expenses was attributable to reduced selling activities in the first half of 2020 due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Payroll, payroll taxes and others increased by $0.96 million, or 25.8%, to $4.67 million for 2020 from $3.71 million for the same period of last year. Our employee compensation was based on sales performance, and our sales related compensation, such as bonuses and commission, increased primarily due to the increase of our revenue in 2020.

Professional fees were $0.40 million for 2020, compared to $0.63 for the same period of last year. Professional fees consist of attorney, audit, investor relationship, and other expenses. The decrease in professional fees was due to the Company incurring the majority of its expenses associated with its initial public offering in 2019.

Operating lease expenses decreased by $0.07 million, or 36.9%, to $0.12 million for 2020 from $0.18 million for the same period of last year. Currently, the Company has one long-term lease, which became effective on January 1, 2019, and will expire on December 31, 2023.

Depreciation and amortization expenses were $21,966 for 2020, compared to $15,180 for the same period of last year. The increase in depreciation and amortization expenses was a result of new equipment purchased for $13,416 and $66,354 in 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Changes in allowance for doubtful accounts was an increase of $3,786 for 2020, compared to the net decrease of $38,883 for the same period of last year.

Other general and administrative expenses decreased by $0.31 million, or 49.6%, to $0.32 million for 2020 from $0.63 million for the same period of last year.

As a result, total operating expenses increased by $0.31 million, or 5.8%, to $5.63 million for 2020 from $5.32 million for the same period of last year.

Operating Income (Loss)

Income from operations was $0.24 million for 2020, compared to $0.36 million for the same period of last year.

The operating profit margin was 4.1% for 2020, compared to 6.3% for the same period of last year. The decrease in operating margin was due to the increases in operating expenses as discussed above.

Other Income

Total other income, including government grants, interest income, and other income (expenses), was $45,935 for 2020, compared to $42,176 for the same period of last year.

Income before Income Tax

Income before income tax was $0.29 million for 2020, compared to $0.40 million for the same period of last year.

The Company incurred income tax of $0.03 million for 2020, compared to $0.10 million for the same period of last year.

Net Income

Net income was $0.25 million for 2020, compared to $0.30 million for the same period of last year. After deduction of non-controlling interest, net income attributable to MDJH ordinary shareholders was $0.26 million, or earnings per share of $0.02, for 2020, compared to $0.45 million, or earnings per share of $0.04, for the same period of last year.

Net cash used in operating activities was $0.60 million for 2020, compared to $1,501 for the same period of last year. Net cash provided by investing activities was $1,076 for 2020, compared to net cash used in investing activities of $0.19 million for the same period of last year. Net cash provided by financing activities was $0.11 million for 2020, compared to $0.07 million for the same period of last year.

Recent Developments

Because of the quarantines and travel restrictions mandated by the Chinese government in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, from the end of January to mid-March of 2020, many real estate projects the Company was promoting and selling were suspended, which adversely impacted its business during that period. However, because the Company’s operating income and earnings have historically been lower during the first quarter than other quarters due to the winter and the Chinese New Year holiday period, the Company believes this seasonality partially mitigated the adverse impact on its full-year operating results. Starting from the end of March 2020, these real estate projects began to reopen. Although the Company believes its operations have resumed to the level prior to the COVID-19 outbreak and expects to continue its normal business operations going forward, any future development of the COVID-19 outbreak may further impact the Company’s operations. If a new wave of the COVID-19 outbreak were to occur in the autumn and winter seasons, it could have a material adverse effect on the Company’s business, results of operations, financial condition, and cash flows.
