Mr. Wenshan Xie, Chairman and CEO of E-Home, commented: “The past half year has posed great challenges as COVID-19-caused country-wide lockdown adversely affected our business. In particular the pandemic outbreak during September and October 2021 in Putian and other cities of Fujian province, where most of our business are based, has greatly disturbed normal operation of our business. As a result, our total revenue was affected but still reached $34.08 million for the six months ended December 31, 2021.”

“Despite the environment causing earnings to be less than prior year, in the second half of 2021, our business remained to be stable. Compared to the second half of 2020 when Fujian province had few COVID-19 case that led to a ‘consumption haze’, our business contracted year-on-year in the second half of 2021. Whereas if compared to the first half of 2021, our total revenue for the six months ended December 31, 2021 actually increased by 9.40%, among which revenue from installation and maintenance increased by 13.88%, revenue from housekeeping services increased by 6.70%, and revenue from senior care services decreased by 8.82% as we decided to lower the price charged per customer to RMB699/year from the original price tag of RMB1,000/person in order to expand our market share and customer base.”

“We remain confident in our ability to improve earnings going forward as not only our fundamentals remain strong, we are also implementing our expansionary strategic plans in big health and metaverse segments in order to hedge against the uncertainties around the pandemic and China’s strategy on COVID-19 containment.”

“The outlook of E-Home is promising. In 2022, although the COVID-19 pandemic continues all over the country, our revenue for the first quarter 2022 is more than 80 million yuan, and remains on a stable trend. The pandemic in Fujian has also been dynamically contained. As long as new COVID cases in the province remain under control, the Company expects its business operation will also be back on track and deliver good performance in 2022.”

Financial Results for Half-Year Ended December 31, 2021

Revenue

Our total revenue was $34.08 million for the six months ended December 31, 2021, although down from the same period in 2020 but still represented an increase from the first half of 2021.

Such decrease was due to the decrease of $10.08 million in revenue from installation and maintenance and the decrease of $1.62 million in revenue from our housekeeping services, which we both began providing in the fiscal year ended June 30, 2018.

Such decreases were primarily due to the lockdown in many cities in China where we had operation as well as the termination of business cooperation with one of our outlets. During the six months ended December 31, 2021, we have partnerships with approximately 2,387 individuals and service stores providing these services in China, which decreased significantly comparing to the six months ended December 31, 2020. We believe our business is and will be continuously adversely affected by COVID-19 and the government’s strict quarantine and prevention measures.

The decreases were partially offset by an increase of $1.69 million in revenue from our senior care services, which we began providing in the fiscal year ended June 30, 2020. For the six months ended December 31, 2021, we generated revenue from senior care services in an amount of $4.09 million, which represents an increase of 70.42%, from revenue from senior care services of $2.40 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020.

Cost of revenue

Our cost of revenue decreased by $4.90 million, or 17.31%, to $23.41 million for the six months ended December 31, 2021 from $28.31 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020. Such decrease was in line with our decreased revenue.

Sales and marketing expenses

Our sales and marketing expenses increased by $1.33 million, or 43.89%, to $4.36 million for the six months ended December 31, 2021 from $3.03 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020. Such increase was primarily due to the increased marketing costs, which were mainly caused by our efforts to increase our brand awareness for the six months ended December 31, 2021 after our initial public offering.

General and administrative expenses

Our general and administrative expenses increased by 508.70%, to $5.60 million for the six months ended December 31, 2021 from $0.92 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020. Such increase was due to the increasing costs for supporting our expanding business and the increased compliance costs as a result of becoming a public company after our initial public offering closed in May 2021.

Income from operations  

As a result of the foregoing, we recorded income from operations of $0.71 million for the six months ended December 31, 2021, representing a decrease of $11.13 million, or 94.00%, compared to $11.84 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020.

Net (loss) income

As a result of the cumulative effect of the factors described above, we generated a net loss of $0.61 million for the six months ended December 31, 2021, representing a decrease in net income of $9.51 million, or 106.85%, from net income of $8.90 million for the six months ended December 31, 2020.

Cash and cash equivalents

As of December 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021, we had cash and cash equivalents of $59.32 million and $52.41 million, respectively.

Net income (loss) per share – basic and diluted

Basic and diluted net loss per share was $0.02 for the six months ended December 31, 2021, compared to net income per share of $0.32 for the six months ended December 31, 2020.
