PART I
  
ITEM 1. BUSINESS
 
Overview of Business

We are engaged in developing, manufacturing and selling organic fertilizers, liquid fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides in the People*s Republic of China, and have developed a product line of over 60 items. We manufacture our proprietary product lines, which are then marketed and sold to distributors, which distributors in turn sell our products to farmers. In addition to our manufacturing and sales and marketing efforts, we conduct research and development to further improve existing products and to develop new formulae and products.

Bodisen Biotech, Inc. was incorporated on January 14, 2000, and our current structure is the result of a series of mergers and other combinations, including a reverse triangular merger with our predecessor, Stratabid.com, Inc. As a result of these transactions, Bodisen Biotech, Inc. owns 100% of Bodisen Agricultural Technology Co., Ltd., or ※Bodisen Agricultural,§ which in turn owns 100% of Yang Ling Bodisen Biology Science and Technology Development Company Limited, or ※Yang Ling.§ Yang Ling, which is our sole operating subsidiary, is located in the People*s Republic of China. Further details regarding these transactions are provided below in the summary of our history.

Our over 60 products cover three categories: organic compound fertilizers, liquid fertilizers, and pesticides and insecticides. Organic compound fertilizer products are our leading product category, accounting for approximately 97.9% and 48.6% of our revenue in 2008 and 2007, respectively. Liquid fertilizers accounted for approximately 1.2% and 34.9% of our revenue in 2008 and 2007, respectively. Pesticides and insecticides accounted for approximately 0.9% and 16.5% of our revenue in 2008 and 2007, respectively.

We currently distribute our products solely in the People*s Republic of China, and our products are currently sold within a group of approximately 20 Chinese agricultural provinces and government-controlled cities. Approximately 80% of our sales are attributable to the local Shaanxi province, 8% of sales are attributable to Henan province, and 5% of sales are attributable to Shanxi province. We also sell a smaller percentage of our products to additional provinces and government-controlled cities, including Ningxia province, Guangdong province and Heilongjiang province.

History and Company Structure

Bodisen Biotech, Inc. was incorporated on January 14, 2000 in Delaware, and our principal place of business is based in the People*s Republic of China. Our principal executive offices are located at: Room 2001, FanMei Building, No. 1 Naguan Zhengjie, Xi*an, Shaanxi, China, 7100068. Our telephone number is +011-86-29-87074957. Our current structure is the result of a series of mergers and other combinations, including a reverse triangular merger with our predecessor, Stratabid.com, Inc. A summary of these transactions is provided below.

Prior to March 1, 2004, we were called Stratabid.com, Inc., which was a startup stage Internet-based commercial mortgage origination business. We operated primarily through our wholly-owned subsidiary, Stratabid.com Online (B.C.) Ltd., or ※Stratabid.com Online,§ which provided services in Canada.

Our sole operating subsidiary, Yang Ling, was founded in the People*s Republic of China on August 31, 2001. Yang Ling, which is located in the Yang Ling Agricultural High-Tech Industries Demonstration Zone, was primarily engaged in developing, manufacturing and selling pesticides and compound organic fertilizers in the People*s Republic of China. On November 19, 2003, Yang Ling incorporated Bodisen International, Inc., or ※Bodisen International,§ a Delaware corporation, as a non-operative holding company.

On December 15, 2003, Bodisen International entered in to an agreement with all of the stockholders of Yang Ling to exchange all of the outstanding stock of Bodisen International for all of the issued and outstanding stock of Yang Ling. After the consummation of the transaction, the former stockholders of Yang Ling owned 1,500 shares of common stock of Bodisen International, which represented 100% of Bodisen International*s issued and outstanding shares, and Bodisen International owned 100% of Yang Ling. For U.S. federal income tax purpose, the transaction was intended to be qualified as a tax-free transaction under section 351 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended.

We accounted for the exchange of shares with Yang Ling as a reverse acquisition under the purchase method of accounting because the stockholders of Yang Ling obtained control of the consolidated entity. Accordingly, the merger of the two companies was recorded as a recapitalization of Yang Ling, with Yang Ling being treated as the continuing entity.

On January 14, 2004, we created a wholly-owned subsidiary corporation currently known as Bodisen Holdings, Inc., a Delaware corporation, or ※Bodisen Holdings§ (formerly Bodisen Acquisition Corp.), to pursue a merger with Bodisen International, the parent of Yang Ling. On February 11, 2004, we and Bodisen Holdings entered into an Agreement and Plan of Merger with Bodisen International and the shareholders of Bodisen International, providing for the merger of Bodisen International into Bodisen Holdings, with Bodisen Holdings being the surviving entity in the merger. The transactions provided for in the Agreement and Plan of Merger closed on February 24, 2004.

 

In the merger, we acquired 100% of Bodisen International*s outstanding stock in exchange for the issuance of 3,000,000 shares of our common stock to the holders of Bodisen International shares. The common stock issued in the merger constituted approximately 66% of our outstanding shares after the merger.

The exchange of shares with Stratabid was accounted for as a reverse acquisition under the purchase method of accounting because the stockholders of Bodisen International obtained control of Stratabid. Accordingly, the merger of the two companies was recorded as a recapitalization of the Company, with the Company being treated as the continuing entity.

On February 25, 2004, we sold Stratabid.com Online to Derek Wasson, our former CEO. In consideration of the sale, Mr. Wasson returned 750,000 (pre-dividend) shares of our common stock to us for cancellation and forgave all of our indebtedness to him. Other than indebtedness of Bodisen International, we had no indebtedness or other liability of any kind or nature after the sale of the business to Mr. Wasson, save and except for liabilities incurred in connection with the merger.


After the merger, we paid a three for one stock dividend and then, by prior agreement, cancelled the shares that were previously returned by our former CEO. After these transactions, the shareholders of Bodisen International held approximately 79% of our outstanding common stock. On March 1, 2004, we changed our name to Bodisen Biotech, Inc.

In March 2005, we formed a new wholly-owned subsidiary by the name of Yang Ling Bodisen Agricultural Technology Co., Ltd., or ※Bodisen Agriculturee§ under the laws of the People*s Republic of China.  In June 2005, Bodisen Agriculture completed a transaction with Yang Ling, our operating subsidiary in the People*s Republic of China, which resulted in Bodisen Agriculturee owning 100% of Yang Ling.

As a result of the foregoing, we now own 100% of Bodisen Agricultural, which in turn owns 100% of Yang Ling. Bodisen Holdings remains our subsidiary.
 
In June 2006, Yang Ling created another wholly owned subsidiary in Xinjiang, China by the name of ※Xinjiang Bodisen Agriculture Material Co. Ltd.§

Industry Background and Markets

The People*s Republic of China is the exclusive market for our organic compound fertilizers, liquid fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides. We sell our products within a group of 20 Chinese agricultural provinces and government-controlled cities. Approximately 80% of our sales are attributable to the local Shaanxi province, 8% of sales are attributable to Henan province, and 5% of sales are attributable to the neighboring Shanxi province. We also sell a smaller percentage of our products to additional provinces and government controlled cities, including Ningxia province, Guangdong province and Heilongjiang province.

Although the People*s Republic of China has the world*s largest population of over 1.3 billion people, its arable land on a per capita basis is only 0.09 hectares (Source: 2006 China Statistical Yearbook), or less than one-sixth of that present in the United States (Source: U.S. State Department, www.america.gov ). This combination of limited arable land and a large and growing population has created a significant need to increase the amount of crops per hectare in the People*s Republic of China.

Our Business and Products

As noted above in the ※Business Overview§ section of this report, we manufacture over 60 products, which can be broken down into the following categories:
 
 
Organic compound fertilizers;
 
Liquid fertilizers; and
 
Pesticides and insecticides.
 
Organic Compound Fertilizers

Organic compound fertilizers are our leading products, accounting for approximately 80.48% and 97.9% of our revenue in 2009 and 2008, respectively.
 
Organic fertilizers are composed of natural nutritional elements that not only improve the quality and yield of the crops but also improve the soil quality; this in turn improves the yield. Organic compound fertilizer accelerates reproduction of soil microbes to improve soil quality through the decomposition of organic material and the improvement of the soil*s retention of nitrogen. Moreover, this application can activate dormant soil by increasing soil nitrates and moisture content that otherwise is not enhanced by traditional chemical fertilizers. This process controls the release of nutritional elements that enhances the quality, quantity and health of crops. Although organic compound fertilizers typically are more expensive than chemical fertilizers, we believe that the extra cost is justified by the increase of yield and quality and, consequently, the increased margin attained at the market.

Plants tend to easily absorb organic fertilizer without many of the side effects found in chemical fertilizer products, and this organic process strengthens photosynthesis, which improves the overall health of a plant in resisting drought and disease.
 
Organic fertilizers also improve the cation exchange capacity, or ※CEC,§ of soil, which refers to the soil*s ability to hold positively charged ions (cations), making them available for uptake by the plant roots. This not only allows for improved uptake of nutrients by the plant but can also reduce leaching, which is of particular concern in sandy soil. Leaching moves nutrients away from the plant roots and into the subsurface water. Additional functions of organic compound fertilizer include:

 
preserving nitrogen and improving soil fertility;
 
allowing phosphorus and potash fertilizer to gradually dissolve;
 
promoting disease resistance; and
 
activating and maintaining soil moisture content.

Our organic fertilizer line includes compound organic fertilizers containing organic matter content levels of 20%, 25%, 35% and 45%. Each of these organic compound fertilizers can then be further narrowed into one of the following product types: wide field, fruit, vegetable, melon or pepper. We also produce various ※Bulk Blend§ or ※BB§ organic fertilizers, which contain organic matter content levels of 35%, 40% and 54%. In addition, we produce various solid organic fertilizers.

Our process for manufacturing organic compound fertilizer products has received ISO 9001: 2000 certification. ISO 9000 has become an international reference for quality management requirements in business-to-business dealings, and the ISO 9000 family is primarily concerned with quality management.

Liquid Fertilizers

Liquid fertilizer products accounted for approximately 1.89% and 4.25% of our revenue in 2009 and 2008, respectively.

The early application of liquid fertilizers aids absorption of the key elements and nutrients of the fertilizer, which may increase the rate of photosynthesis and improve the health of the plant, making it more resistant to disease, drought and cold weather. Liquid fertilizer increases the plant*s yield and shortens the time to harvest while heightening the color and luster of fruit and vegetables. These products may also prolong growing periods, guarantee sufficient nutrition during different crop stages and improve pest resistance in certain fruits and vegetables and other crops. Liquid fertilizer is sold to farmers in a concentrated form and needs to be mixed with water before it is sprayed onto plants.
 
Our liquid fertilizer line includes the following products: ※New Guo Li Dan (500G and 250G),§ ※New Shi Kang Lu (500G),§ New Jia An Gai,§ ※An Fu Lv Ye Wang,§ ※Tian Feng,§ and ※Feng Chan Su (20KG).§

Pesticides and Insecticides

Our pesticides and insecticides account for approximately 1.3% and 9.59% of our revenues in 2009 and 2008 respectively.

Our pesticide products can be applied to all fruit trees and vegetable crops, and are used to kill various insects and pests that reduce crop yield. Our insecticide products are applied to various fruit trees, vegetables and other crops to kill bacteria and to prevent the reproduction of harmful insects and pests.

Our pesticides and insecticides include the following products: ※Wei Te Li Oil,§ ※A Wei Chai Oil,§ ※Lun Mei Su,§ ※Li Jun Sha,§ ※Jin Li Sheng,§ and ※Lun Mei Qing.§

Methods of Distribution

We currently sell each of the products identified above through a network of over 150 regional distributors in the People*s Republic of China. These distributors in turn sell the products to the end-users (typically farmers). Typically, we enter into non-exclusive, short-term written distribution agreements with our distributors. Upon signing a distribution agreement, the distributor will indicate its intent to purchase specified products, and we agree to provide those products upon the distributor*s request. We generally make sales to distributors on a rolling basis. This means that there is a lag between when we deliver our products to our distributors (and recognize revenues for those shipments) and when we receive payment for those products. Typically, accounts are settled anywhere from one to two months and up to seven months after delivery of our products, often in connection with an order for additional product, although we may extend other payment terms to our distributors depending on their ability to pay. We also make advances to suppliers for the purchase of their materials. The products are then sold to farmers and other end-users by the distributor.

Each year we participate in the Yang Ling region*s annual agricultural trade fair and exhibition. Many of our distributors attend this trade fair, and the event accounts for the vast majority of our sales contracts. Sales are then made pursuant to these contracts throughout the year.

We expect to distribute products that are manufactured in our new Xinjiang facility through similar arrangements with distributors; however, we have not yet established relationships with distributors. The construction of our Xinjiang facility is nearly finished and we are in the process of applying production license from government.

Raw Materials

Production of organic fertilizer products, pesticides and insecticides requires a variety of raw materials, and Shaanxi Province provides numerous suppliers of such materials. We currently maintain short-term (typically one-year) supply contracts with 11 material suppliers, 7 of whom are considered ※key§ suppliers. This is a decrease from 19 relationships we maintained in the past. We have terminated some of our prior relationships based on problems with the quality of materials and supplier inability to satisfy contract requirements.

Three vendors provided 30%, 23% and 20% of the Company*s raw materials for the year ended December 31, 2009, and one vendor provided 16% of the Company*s raw materials for the year ended December 31, 2008  During 2009 and 2008, we did not experience any significant delays in receiving raw materials from our suppliers,

 The specific raw materials and suppliers used for each of our product lines are described below.

Organic Compound Fertilizer Raw Materials and Suppliers

To manufacture organic compound fertilizer, we use carbamide, monoammonium phosphate, ammonium acid carbonate, humic acid, oil shale, zeolite powder, phosphorus, coarse whiting, potassium, iron oxide red and potassium chloride. We obtain these raw materials for organic compound fertilizers from many different suppliers in the People*s Republic of China.

Liquid Fertilizer Raw Materials and Suppliers

The raw materials we use to manufacture our liquid fertilizer are carbamide, potassium chloride, ammonium bicarbonate, borax, ferrous sulphate, bluestone, zinc sulphate, manganese sulfate, citric acid, chlorocholine chloride, dodecane, peregal, ethene, calcium chloride, monoammonium phosphate, bitter salt, amino acid, sodium humate, polyacrylimide, humic acid and carbon white. There are several suppliers from whom we obtain these raw materials.
 
Pesticide and Insecticide Raw Materials and Suppliers  

The raw materials used to manufacture pesticides and insecticides include jiajiliujunlung, thiram, muzhisuhuansuanna, active floridin, vaseline, meiduowei, phoxin, qingwujuzhi, emulsifying agent, dimethylbenzene, aweijunsu, #0 diesel oil, damanling, sulfur powder, carbendazim, mancozeb, dodecane, hexamethylenamine, french chalk, malathion, shellfish powder, xiuqingjuzhi, together with additional raw materials that constitute part of our proprietary formulae.

We obtain these raw materials for pesticides and insecticides from Shaanxi Tianshun Chemical Industry Co., Ltd. We also have access to additional suppliers for each of the necessary raw materials in the event that our primary supplier is unable to satisfy our manufacturing needs.

Intellectual property

We rely on trade secret protection for our proprietary technology and formulae. We currently do not own any patents and have not applied for any patents on our proprietary technology and formulae. A patent application requires a detailed description of our technology and formulae, which would then be made available to the general public. We believe that a patent application and disclosure would be detrimental to our business, as it would reveal features unique to our products. Most of our intellectual property was developed in-house or with various universities and research laboratories (which may not be owned by our company). For information regarding the potential consequences of our intellectual property strategy, please see the paragraph of Item 1A, ※Risk Factors,§ titled ※We may not be able to adequately protect and maintain our intellectual property. §

We hold certain government approved intellectual property rights in our trade secrets and proprietary information. Certain intellectual property rights in the People*s Republic of China are decided by the government registry, and we have registered our formulae and proprietary information with the Chinese government. We hold certificates for these rights, which must be registered on an annual basis.

We also own trademarks in the ※Bodisen§ name, which are used on all products.

Seasonality and Volatility

The fertilizer and pesticide businesses are highly seasonal, based upon the planting, growing and harvesting cycles. The seasonality of these industries has its primary effect on the sales volume of our product. Typically, we experience a higher sales volume in the second and third quarters, with a lower volume in the first and fourth quarters.

Our sales volume can be volatile as a result of a number of factors, including:

 
Weather patterns and field conditions (particularly during periods of high fertilizer consumption);
 
Quantities of fertilizers imported to primary markets;
 
Current and projected grain inventories and prices, which are heavily influenced by U.S. exports, worldwide grain markers, and domestic demands (food, feed, biofuel);
 
Government regulation, intervention and unexpected changes in government policies; and
 
The reputation of our products and company in the marketplace.

In addition to the effect on sales volume, certain factors may have an effect on the prices of our organic fertilizer, pesticide and insecticide products. These factors include raw material and other product related costs, as well as expenses related to our workforce and employees.
 
5


Inventory and Working Capital

For each of our products, we maintain an inventory system to meet customer demands. Typically, we produce our products upon receipt of customer orders. We do, however, hold excess inventory to ensure an adequate supply of products. We maintain a larger inventory for ※in-season§ products, while our inventory for out of season products is less.
 
In order to ensure a continuous allotment of goods and raw materials, we operate on an advanced payment system with our suppliers. We pay our suppliers based on our projected needs for raw materials and other supplies, which allows us to maintain a stock of such materials and supplies sufficient to sustain continued production.

We do not have policies related to warranties or the return of merchandise. We do, however, provide our customers with extended payment terms and payment options.

Although each company in the fertilizer, pesticide and insecticide industry adopts its own practices based on its employees, equipment, materials and other resources, we believe that our operations are generally consistent with those of other companies in the industry. We are continuing in our efforts to ensure that we exceed industry expectations for product quality, development and overall performance.

Sales and Marketing

We market and promote the Bodisen brand through trade fairs, conventions and the print media, and through television and radio advertising in the People*s Republic of China. As noted previously, a significant portion of our sales are generated directly or indirectly via the annual trade fair and agricultural exhibition in Yang Ling. Because the end-users of our products are local farmers, we also conduct educational seminars to promote products and organic fertilizers directly to farmers. In addition, we send our promotional team to the countryside and other agricultural areas to advance product recognition through field tests. To capture additional markets, we distribute free samples of our products to new areas, allowing for a product trial period. The results of these trials are then made known to surrounding areas. The cost of such efforts is not material and is typically offset by new sales in those test zones.

Our primary tasks with respect to sales goals are to strengthen our home market in the Shaanxi province and to expand the market outside the Shaanxi province into new districts where our products are not well established.

It is our intention to increase marketing in regions where our products are not well known. We anticipate that once we commence operations in our new facility in Xinjiang, we will begin efforts to promote and market our products within that region. In addition, we expect to engage in general promotion of our products through national newspapers in the People*s Republic of China, where we plan to explain the advantages of the high-tech nature of our environmentally friendly product lines. Although we considered selling exclusive franchise opportunities to new wholesale agents, we have since decided against proceeding with any such projects.

Customers

We sell our products directly to over 150 regional distributors in the People*s Republic of China through written sales contracts. Typically, these non-exclusive distribution contracts have a one-year term and, upon signing the contract, the distributor will indicate its intent to purchase a certain quantity of our products. Distributors who fail to place orders for the quantities estimated under these contracts are generally not held responsible for failing to place orders reflecting the estimated quantity.

All of our sales currently are directed to our distributors, and we do not make any sales directly to farmers or other end users of our products.

Three customers accounted for 24% and 12% of the Companys sales for the year ended December 31, 2009.  One customer accounted for 7% of the Companys sales for the year ended December 31, 2008.


In November 2007 we entered into contracts providing for approximately $9.4 million worth of sales for 2008. As of December 31, 2008, we had received approximately $5.1 million in net revenues in connection with these and other sales contracts.

Following the November 2008 agricultural trade fair and exhibition in Yang Ling, we have received approximately $9 million in commitments for 2009. We had received approximately $4.38 million in connection with these contracts. At the November 2009 agricultural trade fair and exhibition in Yang Ling, we have received approximately$ 9million in commitments for 2010

 Competition

The organic fertilizer industry in the People*s Republic of China is largely fragmented with most competitors operating small regional factories, serving local requirements. Most companies in this industry do not widely promote their products. We have not yet identified any competitors in the Shaanxi province that operate in all of our product lines (organic compound fertilizer, liquid fertilizer and pesticide and insecticides). We believe that we occupy nearly 10% of the Shaanxi fertilizer market, and that no fertilizer company possesses a larger market share in Shaanxi. This conclusion is based on our knowledge of the Shaanxi Province*s land and area and its fertilizer needs. Our competitive position in the fertilizer industry is strengthened by our emphasis on the use of ※environmentally friendly§ fertilizer products.
 
6


We believe that our only international competitor is DuPont.

Research and Development

In 2008, we budgeted to spend approximately $2,100 for research and development and in 2008, we focused our research and development efforts on our liquid fertilizer product line.

In 2009, we budgeted approximately $12,000 for research and development, which we also used towards research ad development of our liquid fertilizer product line.  Currently, we have not budgeted any funds to spend in 2010 on research and development due to the financial crisis

Government and Environmental Regulation

Our products and services are subject to regulation by governmental agencies in the People*s Republic of China and Shaanxi Province. Business and company registrations, along with the products, are certified on a regular basis and must be in compliance with the laws and regulations of the People*s Republic of China and provincial and local governments and industry agencies, which are controlled and monitored through the issuance of licenses. We believe that we have complied with all registrations and requirements for the issuance and maintenance of the licenses required of us by the governing bodies. As of the date of this annual report, all of our license fees and filings are current. Our licenses include:

National Certificate for Production of Industrial Products

The National Certificate for Production of Industrial Products for compounded fertilizers was issued by the National Industrial Products Production License Office on February 27, 2004. This certificate, on renewal, is valid until February 26, 2014.

Certificate for Pesticide Registration

Pesticide registration is required for the production of liquid fertilizer and issued by the Ministry of Agriculture of the People*s Republic of China. This registration also applies to our production of insecticides.

Production standard

We are registered with Bureau of Quality Controls and Technology, Shaanxi Provincial Government, Xi*an.

The cost of obtaining and maintaining these licenses is not prohibitive and it is illegal to do business without these licenses. If we were to lose any of these licenses, we would only have a limited time to reapply for such licenses and would face possible regulatory fines.

While we are subject to relevant environmental laws and regulations that require outlay of capital and the obtaining of relevant permits, we do not anticipate any extraordinary capital expenditures in 2010 for such purposes. We did not make any extraordinary capital expenditures in 2009 or 2008 related to compliance with environmental laws and regulations, including expenditures necessary to obtain relevant permits.

Our new Mancozeb product is awaiting government approval. Prior to the launch of our Mancozeb product, the Chinese government pesticide office instituted a review of all pesticide production companies. As a result, we suspended the installation of our Mancozeb facility pending completion of this government review. Although we continue to work with the government and local authorities to advance the approval process, we have not yet received such approval and do not know when such approval will be received, if at all. Once the government has completed its review and subject to receipt of approval, we expect to continue the installation and launch of the Mancozeb facility.

Except for approvals that have already been obtained, our anticipated new facility in Xinjiang will not require any additional permits or authorizations.

Employees

As of December 31, 2009, we had a total of 283 employees. Of these employees, approximately 23 were executive and senior managers, 80 were business and accounting staff, 14 were warehouse and purchasing staff, and 20 were drivers or secretaries. The balance consists of production workers. We have not experienced any work stoppages and we consider relations with our employees to be good. We are not a party to any collective bargaining agreements.

ITEM 1A. RISK FACTORS

Risks Related To Our Business

Legal actions could result in financial losses or harm to our business.

We are, and in the future may be, subject to legal actions in the ordinary course of our operations, both domestically and internationally. In late 2006, various shareholders of our company filed eight purported class actions in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against our company and certain of our officers and directors (among others), asserting claims under the federal securities laws.  In 2007, the Court consolidated each of the actions into a single proceeding. On September 26, 2008, the Court entered a judgment in favor of the Company and closed the case.  

In addition, we recently settled the litigation regarding our ownership of shares of China Natural Gas, Inc., which was our single largest asset, except construction in progress, based on market value of such shares at December 31, 2008. Pursuant to the settlement terms, we sold our 1,031,884 shares in China Natural Gas, Inc. to Ji Xiang, the original litigant, at a repurchase price of $3.80 per share, for an aggregate repurchase price of $3,921,159.  For more information relating to these matters, see Item 3 ※Legal Proceedings.§ Substantial legal liability in these or future legal or regulatory actions could have a material financial effect or cause significant reputational harm, which in turn could seriously harm our business prospects and our ability to continue as a going concern.

We may be exposed to potential risks relating to our internal control over financial reporting and our ability to have those controls attested to by our independent auditors.

We are (and were required last year) to include a report of management on our internal control over financial reporting in our annual reports on Form 10-K. Although beginning this year, because we are now a smaller reporting issuer, our independent registered public accounting firm is not required to attest to and report on management*s assessment of the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as well as the operating effectiveness of such internal controls for this year, such attestation of our independent registered public accounting firm was required in our annual report for the year ended December 2006, when we were considered to be an accelerated filer. We are in the process of instituting changes to satisfy our obligations in under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. We will need to continue to improve our financial and managerial controls, reporting systems and procedures, and documentation thereof. If our financial and managerial controls, reporting systems or procedures fail, we may not be able to provide accurate financial statements on a timely basis or comply with the Sarbanes-Oxley Act. Any failure of our internal controls or our ability to provide accurate financial statements could cause the trading price of our common stock to decrease substantially.  While we have no reason to believe that our reported financial results and other information included in this annual report are inaccurate or incomplete in any material respect, we may nevertheless identify significant deficiencies or material weaknesses in our internal control over financial reporting in connection with the completion of our report. In the event we identify significant deficiencies or material weaknesses in our internal controls that we cannot remediate in a timely manner or we are unable to receive a positive attestation from our independent auditors with respect to our internal controls, it could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 We may require additional financing in the future and a failure to obtain such required financing could inhibit our ability to grow.

As of December 31, 2009, we had $90,716 of cash and cash equivalents. Although we expect that our cash and cash flow from operations will be sufficient to meet our anticipated needs for the next twelve months, if we decide to expand our business more broadly than currently estimated, or if our business grows more rapidly than we expect, we may need to raise additional financing in the future. Our ability to obtain additional funding would be subject to a number of factors, including market conditions, operational performance and investor sentiment. These factors may make the timing, amount, terms and conditions of additional funding unattractive, or unavailable, to us. If we are not able to obtain additional financing in the future, we will not be able to grow our business, which could have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations and liquidity.
 
8


The terms of any future financing may adversely affect your interest as stockholders and could restrict the operation of our business.

If we require additional financing, we may be required to incur indebtedness or issue equity securities, the terms of which may adversely affect your interests in our company. For example, any future indebtedness may be senior in right of payment to your shares upon liquidation. In addition, the terms of any future indebtedness may limit the operation of our business by imposing restrictions on our ability to grant security interests in our assets or make distributions, require us to comply with certain financial covenants or obtain consent before undertaking certain actions. Similarly, the terms of any equity securities we issue may be senior in right of payment of dividends to our common stock and may contain superior rights and other rights as compared to our common stock. Further, any such issuance of equity securities may dilute your interest in our company.

We may not be able to adequately protect and maintain our intellectual property.

Our success will depend on our ability to continue to develop and market fertilizer and pesticide/insecticide products. We protect our proprietary technology and formulae by keeping such technology or formulae confidential. If such technology or formulae are disclosed to a third party that is not under an obligation to keep the technology confidential, we may not be able to protect our technology or formulae against being exploited by third parties. We currently have not applied for patents for our technology products or formulae as we believe an application for such patents would result in public disclosure of our proprietary technology and formulae with no guarantee that we would have enforceable rights in our intellectual property. Public knowledge of our proprietary technology and formulae without enforceable intellectual property rights could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

Our success depends on our management team and other key personnel, the loss of any of whom could disrupt our business operations.

Our future success will depend in substantial part on the continued service of our senior management. The loss of the services of one or more of our key personnel could impede implementation of our business plan and result in reduced profitability. We do not carry key person life or other insurance in respect of any of our officers or employees (other than Directors* & Officers* (or D&O) insurance). Our future success will also depend on the continued ability to attract, retain and motivate highly qualified technical sales and marketing customer support. Because of the rapid growth of the economy in the People*s Republic of China, competition for qualified personnel is intense. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to retain our key personnel or that we will be able to attract, assimilate or retain qualified personnel in the future. If we are unsuccessful in our efforts in this regard, it could have an adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

We do not have supplier contracts with all of our trade vendors.

As is typical in the agricultural industry in the People*s Republic of China, we do not have supplier contracts with all of our trade vendors. Where we do not have contracts in place, we conduct business on an order-by-order basis. Because we do not have supply contracts in place, we have no guarantee that we will be able to continue to receive adequate supplies for the production of our products or that our suppliers will not continually raise their prices. Despite not having supplier contracts in place in every case, we believe that we have very good relations with the agricultural vendor community. Nonetheless, because we conduct business in this fashion, it exposes us to some risk in the production of our products, which could have an adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

We currently rely on a small number of suppliers for raw materials used to produce our products.

For the year ended December 31, 2009, two vendors provided 28% and 25% of our raw materials (compared to two vendors providing 16%, and 6% of our raw materials in 2008). Although we have written agreements with these suppliers, we cannot guarantee that they will comply with the terms of our agreements, or that they will be able to deliver sufficient quantities of these raw materials in order for us to meet the increasing demand for our products. If we are not able to manufacture our products because of issues in the supply of necessary raw materials, it could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 Disruptions to our chain of production could have a material adverse effect on our business.

If there is disruption in our chain of production - from receipt of raw materials, to stoppages at our facilities, to delivery of our products - for whatever reason, it could have a material adverse effect on our business. The manufacture of our products relies on the delivery of raw materials to our facilities, the absence of work stoppages or other problems at our manufacturing facilities, as well as the ability to ship our products in a timely fashion. Although disruptions are infrequent, they can have an effect on our operations. For example, in mid-2006, road construction began in front of one of our manufacturing facilities, which affected our ability to receive supplies and ship products and consequently had a negative effect on our business. Similar road improvement projects over which we have no control could occur in the future. If we are unable to manufacture and deliver our products in a timely fashion, we could suffer harm to our reputation and our revenues and operating expenses could be negatively affected.

We may be unable to pass along raw materials price increases to our customers, which could negatively affect our results of operations.

The raw materials that we use in the manufacture of our products are subject to fluctuation due to market prices. If raw materials prices significantly increase and we are unable to pass along these costs to our customers, our operating expenses will increase and our results of operations could be negatively affected.

We sell many of our products on credit, which exposes us to risk of payment defaults. We also make interest-free and unsecured advances to suppliers for the purchase of materials, which exposes us to risk of default.

As is typical in the People*s Republic of China, we generally sell our products to distributors on a rolling basis. This means that there is a lag between when we deliver our products to our distributors (and recognize revenues for those shipments) and when we receive payment for those products. Typically, accounts are settled anywhere from one to two months and up to seven months after delivery of our products, although we may extend other payment terms to our distributors depending on their ability to pay. Often times, if a customer does not order additional products for delivery, we do not have significant leverage to ensure prompt payment of outstanding accounts. In addition to accounts receivables from customers, we also make advances to suppliers for the purchase of their materials. These activities expose us to risk of default. A farmer*s inability to sell his agricultural goods, or grow crops due to inclement weather, could hinder his ability to timely pay his credit obligations to our distributors, which affects their ability to make payment to us. Notably, in 2009, many of our customers did not make payments to our company for products delivered and we no longer believe that we will be able to collect such payments. Further, we have no guarantee that our suppliers will meet their delivery obligations to our company in order for us to produce our goods in a timely fashion. As of December 31, 2009, we had accounts receivable, net of allowance for doubtful accounts, of $241,145.05 compared to $719,607 in 2008, advances to suppliers of $0 compared to $0 in 2008, and we had allowances for doubtful accounts of $4,282,684.01 compared to $6,069,700 in 2008. If an unexpected number of our suppliers and creditors continue to default in their obligations to us, it could have a material adverse effect on our liquidity.

Adverse weather conditions could reduce demand for our products, which could have a negative effect on our revenues.

Demand for our products fluctuates significantly with weather conditions, which may delay the use of our products on crops or render them unnecessary at all. In addition, demand for our products is also affected by natural disasters such as floods, drought, hail, tornadoes and earthquakes. If demand for our products declines, this would have a negative effect on our revenues. In addition, in the event that crop yields are reduced for any reason, including natural disasters, farmers may default on their payments to our distributors, who, in turn, could default on their payments to our company. Further, we have no guarantee that our suppliers will meet their delivery obligations to our company in order for us to produce our goods in a timely fashion. In 2007, for example, there was unseasonably cold spring weather in Shaanxi, which was followed by a flood and drought in the third quarter of 2007. These events affected crop plantings and the use of fertilizers, which had a material adverse effect on our 2007 revenues. Further, many of our customers did not make payments to our company in 2007 for products delivered and we had allowances for doubtful accounts of $4,282,684.01 at December 31, 2009 compared to $6,069,700 at December 31, 2008. Continued defaults could have a negative effect on our cash flows and results of operations.

Our success depends upon the development of the People*s Republic of China*s agricultural industry.

The People*s Republic of China is currently the world*s most populous country and one of the largest producers and consumers of agricultural products. Over 40% of the People*s Republic of China*s labor force is engaged in agriculture, even though only about 14% of the land is suitable for cultivation. (Source: CIA Factbook) Although the People*s Republic of China hopes to further increase agricultural production, incomes for Chinese farmers are stagnating. Despite the Chinese government*s continued emphasis on agricultural self-sufficiency, inadequate port facilities and a lack of warehousing and cold storage facilities impedes the domestic agricultural trade. If the Chinese agricultural market does not develop, or develops slower than we expect, it could have an adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.
 
Our operating subsidiary may be restricted from making distributions to our company.

We are a legal entity separate and distinct from Yang Ling, which is our indirect wholly-owned operating subsidiary. Aside from our financing activities, the receipt of dividends from Yang Ling is currently our only other source of cash to pay shareholder dividends and to meet our other obligations. Yang Ling is subject to Chinese regulations that currently permit the payment of dividends only out of accumulated profits as determined in accordance with Chinese accounting standards and regulations. These accounting standards and regulations also require Yang Ling to set aside a portion of its after tax profits to fund certain reserve funds. See Note 11 to our consolidated financial statements included in this annual report for more information about these regulations. Although it has been able to do so, to date Yang Ling has not paid us any dividends. In the future, if Yang Ling does not accumulate sufficient profits under Chinese accounting standards and regulations after funding the required reserves, it will not be able to pay us any dividends, and consequently, we may be unable to pay any dividends to our stockholders.

We do not anticipate paying dividends on our common stock.

We have never paid dividends on our common stock and do not anticipate paying dividends in the foreseeable future. Our Board of Directors currently intends to follow a policy of retaining all of our earnings, if any, to finance the development and expansion of our business.
 
10


Our corporate structure may subject you to two levels of taxation on the payment of dividends or upon a disposition of our operating subsidiary, thereby substantially reducing the return on your investment.

If Yang Ling, our wholly-owned indirect subsidiary, pays a dividend to us, its parent company, for distribution to our stockholders as a dividend, or if Yang Ling (rather than us, its parent company) is ultimately sold, the dividend or the proceeds of that transaction would be subject to two levels of tax: one at the parent corporate level and one at the parent stockholder level. Because we conduct our operations through Yang Ling, any dividends we pay must come from Yang Ling. Additionally, if a sale were to occur, it would most likely be Yang Ling that would be sold, rather than our company. Because of applicable tax laws, if Yang Ling pays a dividend to us in the future or if Yang Ling is sold in the future, those proceeds may be subject to two levels of taxation: (i) we will pay tax on the dividend or sale proceeds received from Yang Ling, and (ii) our stockholders will pay tax on the distribution of the dividend or the proceeds of the sale. These two levels of taxation will effectively reduce the financial return on your investment in our company.

The industry in which we do business is highly competitive and we face competition from numerous fertilizer manufacturers in China and elsewhere.

We compete with numerous local Chinese fertilizer manufacturers. Although we may have greater resources than many of our competitors, most of which are small local fertilizer companies, it is possible that these competitors have better access in certain local markets to customers and prospects, an enhanced ability to customize products to a particular region or locality and established local distribution channels within a small region. Furthermore, we may face competition from international producers and traders who import products into China that generally are of higher quality than those produced in the local Chinese market. Although we believe that we have many competitive strengths that differentiate our products and the Bodisen brand, we nevertheless must compete aggressively to maintain and grow our market share. If we are not successful in our marketing and advertising efforts to increase awareness of our brands, our revenues could decline and it could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

We may not be able to obtain regulatory or governmental approvals for our products.

The manufacture and sale of our agricultural products in the People*s Republic of China is regulated by the People*s Republic of China and the Shaanxi Provincial Government. The legal and regulatory regime governing our industry is evolving, and we may become subject to different, including more stringent, requirements than those currently applicable to our company. Because we must obtain permits and other regulatory approvals for the manufacture of our products, we may be vulnerable to local and national government agencies or other parties who wish to renegotiate the terms and conditions of, or terminate their agreements or other understandings with us, or implement new or more stringent requirements, which may require us to suspend or delay production of our products. For example, we are still delaying the launch of our Mancozeb product line because the Chinese government pesticide office instituted a review of all pesticide production companies. Although our licenses and regulatory filings are current, we have had to suspend the installation of our Mancozeb facility pending the completion of the government review. If we are unable to manufacture and distribute our products, even temporarily, it could have a material adverse effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

 Risks Related to the People*s Republic of China

The People*s Republic of China*s Economic Policies could affect our Business.

Virtually all of our assets are located, and virtually all of our revenues are derived from our operations, in the People*s Republic of China. Accordingly, our business, financial condition and results of operations are subject, to a significant extent, to the economic, political and legal developments in the People*s Republic of China.

While the People*s Republic of China*s economy has experienced significant growth in the past twenty years, such growth has been uneven, both geographically and among various sectors of the economy. The Chinese government has implemented various measures to encourage economic growth and guide the allocation of resources. Some of these measures benefit the overall economy of the People*s Republic of China, but they may also have a negative effect on us. For example, operating results and financial condition may be adversely affected by the government control over capital investments or changes in tax regulations.

Over the past 20 years, the Chinese economy has experienced periods of rapid expansion and fluctuating rates of inflation. These factors have led to the adoption by the Chinese government, from time to time, of various corrective measures designed to restrict the availability of credit or regulate growth and contain inflation. High inflation may in the future cause the Chinese government to impose controls on credit and/or prices, or to take other action that could inhibit economic activity in China, and thereby harm the market for our products, which could have a negative effect on our business, financial condition and results of operations.

The economy of the People*s Republic of China has been changing from a planned economy to a more market-oriented economy. In recent years the Chinese government has implemented measures emphasizing the utilization of market forces for economic reform and the reduction of state ownership of productive assets, and the establishment of corporate governance in business enterprises; however, a substantial portion of productive assets in the People*s Republic of China are still owned by the Chinese government. In addition, the Chinese government continues to play a significant role in regulating industry development by imposing industrial policies. It also exercises significant control over the People*s Republic of China*s economic growth through the allocation of resources, the control of payment of foreign currency- denominated obligations, the setting of monetary policy and the provision of preferential treatment to particular industries or companies.
 
11


Capital outflow policies in the People*s Republic of China may hamper our ability to remit income to the United States.

The People*s Republic of China has adopted currency and capital transfer regulations. These regulations may require us to comply with complex regulations for the movement of capital. Although we believe that we are currently in compliance with these regulations, should these regulations or the interpretation of them by courts or regulatory agencies change; we may not be able to remit all income earned and proceeds received in connection with its operations or from the sale of its operating subsidiary to our stockholders.

Fluctuation of the Renminbi may indirectly affect our financial condition and your investment by affecting the volume of cross- border money flow.

The value of the Renminbi against the U.S. dollar and other currencies may fluctuate and is affected by, among other things, changes in the PRC's political and economic conditions. According to the currency website www.xe.com, as of December 31, 2009, $1 = 6.828 Renminbi. As we rely entirely on revenue earned in the PRC, any significant revaluation of the Renminbi may materially and adversely affect our cash flows, revenue and financial condition. For example, to the extent that we need to convert U.S. dollars we receive from an offering of our securities into Renminbi for Yang Ling*s operations, appreciation of the Renminbi against the U.S. dollar would diminish the value of the proceeds of the offering and this could harm Xi*an Pharmaceuticals* business, financial condition and results of operations because it would reduce the proceeds available to us for capital investment in proportion to the appreciation of the Renminbi. Thus if we raise 1,000,000 dollars and the Renminbi appreciates against the U.S. dollar by 15%, then the proceeds will be worth only RMB 5,803,800 as opposed to RMB 6,828,000 prior to the appreciation. Conversely, if we decide to convert our Renminbi into U.S. dollars for the purpose of making payments for dividends on our common shares or for other business purposes and the U.S. dollar appreciates against the Renminbi; the U.S. dollar equivalent of the Renminbi we convert would be reduced in proportion to the amount the U.S. dollar appreciates. In addition, the depreciation of significant RMB denominated assets could result in a charge to our income statement and a reduction in the dollar value of these assets. Thus if Xi*an Pharmaceuticals has RMB 1,000,000 in assets and Renminbi is depreciated against the U.S. dollar by 15%, then the assets will be valued at $124,487 as opposed to $146,456 prior to the depreciation.
 
On July 21, 2005, the PRC government changed its decade-old policy of pegging the value of the Renminbi to the U.S. dollar. Under the new policy, the Renminbi is permitted to fluctuate within a narrow and managed band against a basket of certain foreign currencies. This change in policy has resulted in an approximately 17.5% appreciation of the Renminbi against the U.S. dollar as of December 31, 2009. While the international reaction to the Renminbi revaluation has generally been positive, there remains significant international pressure on the PRC government to adopt an even more flexible currency policy, which could result in a further and more significant appreciation of the Renminbi against the U.S. dollar.

We may have difficulty establishing adequate management, legal and financial controls in the People*s Republic of China.

The People*s Republic of China historically has not adopted a Western style of management and financial reporting concepts and practices, modern banking, computer or other control systems. We may have difficulty in hiring and retaining a sufficient number of qualified employees to work in the People*s Republic of China. As a result of these factors, we may experience difficulty in establishing management, legal and financial controls, collecting financial data and preparing financial statements, books of account and corporate records and instituting business practices that meet Western standards.

Because most of our directors and all of our officers reside outside of the United States and virtually all of our assets are located in the People*s Republic of China, you may have difficulty enforcing certain rights.
 
Any parties who file litigation against our officers and directors may have difficulty serving their lawsuit and acquiring personal jurisdiction because all of our executive officers and most of our directors reside in the People*s Republic of China. For the same reason, it may be difficult for parties who file litigation against those of our officers and directors who reside in the People*s Republic of China to enforce judgments that a jurisdiction other than the People*s Republic of China enters against them. In addition, because virtually all of our assets are located in the People*s Republic of China, it may be difficult to access those assets to satisfy any monetary judgment that a jurisdiction other than the People*s Republic of China enters against us.

Risks Related to Our Common Stock
 
Our common stock is no longer listed on the American Stock Exchange, or Amex, and until February 2010 was quoted only on the Pink Sheets in the United States, which may have an unfavorable impact on our stock price and liquidity.
 
On November 6, 2006, we received notice of deficiency from the Amex that we were not in compliance with certain continued listing standards and on March 22, 2007, we received notice from Amex of its intent to delist our shares of common stock. We decided not to appeal Amex*s decision and from April 2007 through January 2010 our common stock was quoted in the United States on the Pink Sheets under the symbol ※BBCZ.§ As of February 1, 2010, we have obtained clearance from FINRA and have been quoted on the Over-the-Counter Bulletin Board (the ※OTCBB§) under the symbol ※BBCZ.§ See Item 5 of this annual report for more information regarding the market for shares of our common stock. The Pink Sheets and the OTCBB are a significantly more limited market than the Amex and the quotation of our shares on the Pink Sheets or OTCBB may result in a less liquid market available for existing and potential stockholders to trade shares of our common stock in the United States. This could depress the trading price of our common stock and could have a long-term adverse impact on our ability to raise capital in the future.
 
The market price for our common stock may be volatile, which could result in a complete loss of your investment.
 
Our common stock is not widely traded or traded in great volume. This was the case even prior to delisting from Amex. Because of the limited trading market and volume, the market price for our common stock is likely to be highly volatile and subject to wide fluctuations in response to factors including the following:
 
 
actual or anticipated fluctuations in our operating results; 
   
 
changes in financial estimates by securities analysts; 
   
 
market conditions, including new product announcements by us or our competitors, changes in the economic performance or market valuations of competitor companies, as well as acquisition announcements; 
   
 
additions or departures of key personnel; and 
   
 
legal and regulatory developments.
 
Volatility in our common stock price may make the value of an investment in our shares more speculative.
 
We could become subject to penny stock regulations and restrictions, which could make it difficult for our stockholders to sell their shares of stock in our company.
 
SEC regulations generally define ※penny stocks§ as equity securities that have a market price of less than $5.00 per share or an exercise price of less than $5.00 per share, subject to certain exemptions. As of March 25, 2009, the closing bid price for our common stock was $0.25 per share. Although we currently meet the net worth exemption from the ※penny stock§ definition, no assurance can be given that such exemption will be maintained. If we lose the exemption, our common stock may become subject to Rule 15g-9 under the Exchange Act, which regulations are commonly referred to as the ※Penny Stock Rules.§ The Penny Stock Rules impose additional sales practice requirements on broker-dealers prior to selling penny stocks, which may make it burdensome to conduct transactions in our shares. If our shares become subject to the Penny Stock Rules, it may be difficult to sell shares of our stock, and because it may be difficult to find quotations for shares of our stock, it may be impossible to accurately price an investment in our shares. There can be no assurance that our common stock will continue to qualify for an exemption from the Penny Stock Rules. In any event, even if our common stock continues to remain exempt from the Penny Stock Rules, we remain subject to Section 15(b)(6) of the Exchange Act, which gives the SEC the authority to restrict any person from participating in a distribution of a penny stock if the SEC determines that such a restriction would be in the public interest.

We also maintain two separate factories in Yang Ling, China, situated at differing locations within the Yang Ling Agriculture High-Tech Industries Demonstration Zone. These two factories occupy an aggregate of approximately 56,745 square meters of land and contain our three production lines, as well as office buildings, warehouses and two research laboratories. These leases require monthly rental payments of $2,550 and the leases expire in 2013.

We have entered into land-lease arrangements for the above-mentioned factories. We do not own any land because, under the People*s Republic of China*s governmental regulations, the government owns all land.

In connection with an agreement with the city government of A La Er, China (which is located in the Uygur autonomous region of Xinjiang, China), we agreed to invest in the construction of a manufacturing facility that will be able to produce up to 200,000 metric tons of fertilizer and pesticide products. This facility is located in Xinjiang, China and is approximately 120 acres (80,000 square meters). We believe that, with the strong government support that we are receiving and the regional market demand for fertilizer and pesticide products, Xinjiang represents a significant long-term growth opportunity for Bodisen. We began construction of the facility in April 2006 and originally believed construction would be completed in November 2006. However, there have been a series of delays, including delays caused by local weather conditions (an early winter, late spring and frequent sandstorms). To date, we have spent approximately $14.8 million on this facility. Although, as of December 31, 2009, construction of the facility was complete, we are waiting for government approval of our production license before we can commence operations.

In August 2006, we entered into a 30-year land-lease arrangement with the government of the People*s Republic of China for the 80,000 square meter plot of land in Xinjiang, under which we pre-paid $2,529,818 upon execution of the contract of lease expense for the next 15 years. We agreed to make a prepayment for the subsequent eight years in November 2021 and will make a final pre-payment in November 2029 for the remaining seven years. The annual lease expense amounts to approximately $169,580. On July 15, 2008, the Company entered into a 50 year land rights agreement for the rights to use the 80,000 square meter plot of land.

Following the 2006 admission of our shares to trading on the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange plc, we indicated that we intended to use certain proceeds from that offering to construct an additional facility in Northeast China. We have since decided not to pursue this project at this time.

We believe that our owned and leased properties, along with the properties being developed in our current facility expansion plans, will be sufficient for our current and immediately foreseeable operating needs.

ITEM 3. LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
 
From time to time, we may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings that arise in the ordinary course of business. Litigation is, however, subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in these or other matters may arise from time to time that may harm our business. Other than the matters described below, we are currently not aware of any such legal proceedings or claims that we believe would or could have, individually or in the aggregate, a material adverse affect on our business, financial condition, results of operations or liquidity.

In late 2006, various shareholders of our company filed eight purported class actions in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against our company and certain of our officers and directors (among others), asserting claims under the federal securities laws. The complaints contain allegations about the our prior financial disclosures and our internal controls and a prior, now-terminated relationship with a financial advisor. The complaints do not specify an amount of damages that plaintiffs seek.

The eight actions are Stephanie Tabor vs. Bodisen, Inc., et al., Case No. 06-13220 (filed November 2006), Fraser Laschinger vs. Bodisen, Inc., et al., Case No. 06-13254 (filed November 2006), Anthony DeSantis vs. Bodisen, Inc., et. al., Case No. 06-13454 (filed November 2006), Yuchen Zhou vs. Bodisen, Inc., et. al., Case No. 06-13567 (filed November 2006), William E. Cowley vs. Bodisen, Inc., et. al., Case No. 06-13739 (filed December 2006), Ronald Stubblefield vs. Bodisen, Inc., et. al., Case No. 06-14449 (filed December 2006), Adam Cohen vs. Bodisen, Inc., et. al., Case No. 06-15179 (filed December 2006) and Lawrence M. Cohen vs. Bodisen, Inc., et. al., Case No. 06-15399 (filed December 2006). Plaintiffs have not specified an amount of damages they seek. Last year, the Court consolidated each of the actions into a single proceeding.  On September 26, 2008, the Court entered a judgment in favor of the Company and closed the case.  

 In 2007, Ji Xiang, a shareholder of China Natural Gas (and son of its Chairman and CEO) instituted litigation in the Chinese court system in Shaanxi province challenging the validity of our ownership of 1,031,884 (2,063,768 pre-stock split) shares of China Natural Gas common stock. We obtained these shares in September 2005 in a share transfer agreement and assert that we have fully performed our obligations under the agreement and are entitled to own the shares. Also, in January 2008, the same shareholder instituted litigation in the State of Utah District Court, Salt Lake County, against Yangling Bodisen Biotech Development Co. Ltd. and Interwest Transfer Co. (China Natural Gas*s transfer agent) seeking to prevent us from selling our shares in China Natural Gas. Plaintiff obtained an order from the Utah court provisionally preventing us from selling the China Natural Gas shares pending a decision on the merits of the underlying dispute. In May 2009, Ji Xiang and Yangling entered into a settlement agreement through mediation in the Supreme Court of Shaanxi province and the case was dismissed. Pursuant to the settlement agreement, Xiang Ji agreed to withdraw the lawsuit he filed against Yangling in the State of Utah District Court, Salt Lake County, and Yangling agreed to sell back to Ji Xiang the 1,031,884 shares at a repurchase price of $3.80 per share, for an aggregate repurchase price of $3,921,159.  

As of October 29, 2009, the Utah court lifted the injunction preventing us from selling our shares in China Natural Gas and allowed for the certificate representing the 1,031,884 shares to be transferred to Ji Xiang.  In November 2009, the Company effected a transfer of the shares through a United States transfer agent in accordance with the settlement agreement among the parties.  The lawsuit in Utah was thereafter dismissed and has no further potential effect or impact upon the operation or financial condition of the Company.

As of March 22, 2010, there were approximately 1,220 holders of record of our common stock.

Of the approximately 1,220 holders of record, 28 holders of record currently hold shares of our common stock on behalf of additional persons residing in the People*s Republic of China. Some or all of the 19 stockholders of Bodisen International (which, prior to the ※reverse merger,§ was the parent of Yang Ling, our principal operating subsidiary) who received stock in the ※reverse merger§ held at least a portion of such shares on behalf of additional persons residing in the People*s Republic of China. Prior to the reverse merger that resulted in our current corporate structure, various individuals provided investment capital to Yang Ling. After the reverse merger, we issued share certificates for our common stock to reflect the value of the earlier investments. Pursuant to an arrangement with the initial investors, we issued share certificates to certain individuals other than the initial investors (including Qiong Wang, a Director, and Bo Chen, our Chairman, CEO and President), who held title to those shares as nominee for the benefit of those investors. Following our reverse merger and our payment of a three for one stock dividend, Ms. Wang held legal title to a total of 3,748,780 shares, of which she held 3,028,780 as nominee for the benefit of the initial investors and 720,000 for her own benefit, and Mr. Chen held legal title to 3,584,096 shares, of which he held 2,894,096 as nominee for the benefit of the initial investors and 690,000 for his own benefit. Thus, Ms. Wang and Mr. Chen held 5,922,876 shares beneficially for others, apart from the shares they held for themselves.
 
In late 2005, some of the initial investors began to request that the beneficially-held shares be transferred to them so that they could hold the shares in their own names. In response, Ms. Wang and Mr. Chen transferred shares they held beneficially for the initial investors to their children, who in turn effectuated the transfer of such shares to the initial investors. Over time, this process continued so that eventually, Ms. Wang and Mr. Chen transferred indirectly through their children all of the 5,922,876 beneficially-held shares to the initial investors, with the exception of approximately 738,000 shares. We hold the originals of 28 stock certificates representing these approximate 738,000 shares in our offices in Xi*an, China.

 The record holders of the 28 share certificates are nominees only and hold the shares for the benefit of initial investors or their assigns. The nominees have not asserted any interest in or made any claim to these shares. We have confirmed that the share certificates are genuine and that the records of our transfer agent are consistent with the information that appears on the certificates.
 
Dividends

We have never declared or paid any cash dividends on our common stock. We currently intend to retain future earnings, if any, to finance the expansion of our business. As a result, we do not anticipate paying any cash dividends in the foreseeable future.  

In addition, as stipulated by the Company Law of the People*s Republic of China, net income after taxation can only be distributed as dividends after appropriation has been made for the following:

 
making up cumulative prior years* losses, if any;
 
allocations to the ※statutory surplus reserve§ of at least 10% of income after tax, as determined under the People*s Republic of China*s accounting rules and regulations, until the fund amounts to 50% of a company*s registered capital;
 
allocations of 5-10% of income after tax, as determined under the People*s Republic of China*s accounting rules and regulations, to a company*s ※statutory common welfare fund,§ which is established for the purpose of providing employee facilities and other collective benefits to a company*s employees; and
 
allocations to the discretionary surplus reserve, if approved in the stockholders* general meeting.
 
15

 
Accordingly, we established a reserve for the annual contribution of 10% of net income to the welfare fund, and the amount included in the statutory reserve for the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008 amounted to $0 and $0, respectively.

Recent Issuances of Unregistered Securities

In October 2008, we issued 400,000 shares of common stock to Valuerich, Inc. and its designees as consideration for certain business and management consulting services rendered pursuant to a strategic consulting agreement between the Company and Valuerich, Inc. dated April 14, 2008.  In connection with the foregoing, we relied upon the exemption from securities registration afforded by Rule 506 of Regulation D and/or Section 4(2) of the Securities Act, and transfers of such shares were restricted by the Company in accordance with the requirements of the Securities Act. All of the above-referenced persons were provided with access to our Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

Issuer Repurchases of Equity Securities

None.
 
ITEM 6. SELECTED FINANCIAL DATA

Not applicable.

ITEM 7. MANAGEMENT*S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS  

FORWARD LOOKING STATEMENTS

The following information should be read in conjunction with our selected consolidated financial and operating data and the accompanying consolidated financial statements and related notes thereto included elsewhere in this annual report. The following discussion may contain forward-looking statements that reflect our plans, estimates and beliefs. Our actual results could differ materially from those discussed in these forward-looking statements. Factors that could cause or contribute to these differences include, but are not limited to, those discussed below and elsewhere in this annual report, particularly in ※Risk Factors§ and ※Note Regarding Forward Looking Statements.§

Virtually all of our revenues and expenses are denominated in Renminbi ("RMB"), the currency of the People's Republic of China. Because we report our financial statements in U.S. dollars, we are exposed to translation risk resulting from fluctuations of exchange rates between the RMB and the U.S. dollar. There is no assurance that exchange rates between the RMB and the U.S. dollar will remain stable. A devaluation of the RMB relative to the U.S. dollar could adversely affect our business, financial condition and results of operations. See ※Risk Factors.§ We do not engage in currency hedging and to date, inflation has not had a material impact on our business.

Unless otherwise specified, references to Notes to our consolidated financial statements are to the Notes to our audited consolidated financial statements as of December 31, 2009 and 2008 and for the two-year period ended December 31, 2009.

Overview

We are incorporated under the laws of the state of Delaware and our operating subsidiary, Yang Ling, is headquartered in Shaanxi Province, the People*s Republic of China. We are engaged in developing, manufacturing and selling organic fertilizers, liquid fertilizers, pesticides and insecticides in the People*s Republic of China and produce numerous proprietary product lines, from pesticides to crop-specific fertilizers. We market and sell our products to distributors throughout the People's Republic of China, and these distributors, in turn, sell our products to farmers. We also conduct research and development to further improve existing products and develop new formulas and products.

Results of Operations

Year ended December 31, 2009 compared to year ended December 31, 2008

Revenue:  

We generated revenue of $4,351,164 for the year ended December 31, 2009, a decrease of $3,243,294 or 42.7%, compared to $7,594,458 for the year ended December 31, 2008.  The decrease in revenue is primarily attributable to the overall slowdown in the economy. Also in order to increase sales volume and to give more customers access our products, we decreased our product*s sales price by 25% in 2009.  The decrease in revenue is attributed to both lower sales volume and lower sales prices.  We anticipate that revenue will increase as the overall global economy increases.
 
16


Gross Profit:

We achieved a gross profit of $493,243 for the year ended December 31, 2009, an increase of $88,008 or 21.7%, compared to $405,235 for the year ended December 31, 2008.  The gross profit percentage was 11.3% and 5.3% for the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively.  The increase in gross profit margin was primarily attributable to a large write down in inventory in 2008 that was charged to cost of revenue offset by to higher material costs and a decrease in the selling price for our products as mentioned above in 2009.      

Operating expenses:

We incurred net operating expenses of $1,310,654 for the year ended December 31, 2009, a decrease of $6,221,660 or 82.6%, compared to $7,532,314 for the year ended December 31, 2008.  The decrease in our operating expenses is primarily attributable to a decrease in our general cost of operations due to the reduction of our revenue during the past few years.

Selling expenses accounted for $151,756 of our operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2009, a decrease of $2,406,640 or 94.1%, compared to $2,558,396 for the year ended December 31, 2008.  The decrease in our selling expenses is primarily attributable to a decrease in marketing costs.   General and administrative expenses accounted for $1,054,615 for the year ended December 31, 2009, a decrease of $2,931,924 or 73.5% compared to $3,986,539 for the year ended December 31, 2008. The decrease in general and administrative expenses is primarily related to a decrease in our general cost of operations due to the reduction of our revenue during the past few years, a reduction in personnel resulting in lower payroll costs and a write off of certain loan receivables.

Non Operating Income and Expenses

We had total non-operating income of $1,327,700 for the year ended December 31, 2009, an increase of $1,161,424 or 698.5%, compared to $166,276 for the year ended December 31, 2008.  Total non-operating income includes interest income of $2,939 for the year ended December 31, 2009 compared to $155,936 for year ended December 31, 2008.  The decrease in interest income is primarily attributable to less cash in the bank generating interest income.  Also included in non-operating income (expense) for the year ended December 31, 2009 is $842,145 related to the sale of two investments and $484,794 in equity income of another investment that we account for under the equity method.

Net Income:

For the foregoing reasons, we had a net income of $510,289 for the year ended December 31, 2009, an increase in net income of $7,429,326 or 107.4%, compared to a net loss of $6,919,037 for the year ended December 31, 2008.  We had earnings (loss) per share of $0.03 and $(0.37) for the year ended December 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively.


We are primarily a parent holding company for the operations carried out by our indirect operating subsidiary, Yang Ling, which carries out its activities in the People*s Republic of China.  Because of our holding company structure, our ability to meet our cash requirements apart from our financing activities, including payment of dividends on our common stock, if any, substantially depends upon the receipt of dividends from our subsidiaries, particularly Yang Ling.

During 2008, we exchanged $3,291,264 of receivables for a 28.8% ownership interest in a Chinese company, Shanxi Jiali Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd (※Jiali§).  We have written down the value of this investment by $987,860 at December 31, 2008.  This investment is accounted for under the equity method and we recorded equity income in this investment for the year ended December 31, 2009 of $484,728.  We received our ownership in Jiali a result of settling an old receivable.  We believed that we had a better chance of realizing the value of this receivable by accepting ownership in Jiali than pursuing a cash payment from our customer.  In September 2009 Jiali merged with a U.S. public company trading on the OTC Bulletin Board, which should give us liquidity in this investment.  At the date of the change, the investment was valued at $2,829,732.  As of December 31, 2009, the fair value of the investment is $8,175,290 which is reflected in the consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2009.  The unrealized gain of $5,345,558 is reflected as other comprehensive income in the consolidated statement of stockholder*s equity.

During the fourth quarter of 2009, we sold our 1,031,884 shares of China Natural Gas for $3,921,159 or $3.80 a share for a realized gain of $1,053,813.  The sale of the stock was due to a settlement agreement with one of the shareholders of China Natural Gas.

Cash Flows

Operating:

Cash provided by operating for the year ended December 31, 2009 was 79,511compared to $6,161,699 for the year ended December 31, 2008.  The decrease in the cash provided by operating activities is principally due to the changes in advances to suppliers.  For the year ended December 31, 2009, we had an increase in advances to suppliers of $541,422 compared to a decrease in advance to suppliers of 10,242,896 for the year ended December 31, 2008.

Investing:

Our investing activities generated $4,651,927 of cash for the year ended December 31, 2009, compared to $6,924,024 of cash used in investing activities for the year ended December 31, 2008.  The increase is primarily attributable to a sale of assets during 2009.

Financing:

We had no cash provided by financing activities for the year ended December 31, 2009 and 2008.

Contractual Commitments

In August 2006, we entered into a 30-year land-lease arrangement with the government of the People*s Republic of China, under which we pre-paid $2,529,818 upon execution of the contract of lease expense for the next 15 years. We agreed to make a prepayment for the next eight years in November 2021, and will make a final pre-payment in November 2029 for the remaining seven years. The annual lease expense amounts to approximately $169,580. Our land-lease arrangement is currently our only material on- and off-balance sheet expected or contractually committed future obligation.


We currently do not have any material off-balance sheet arrangements except for the remaining pre-payments under the land-lease arrangement described above.

Critical Accounting Policies and Estimates

Our financial statements and related public financial information are based on the application of accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("US GAAP"). US GAAP requires the use of estimates; assumptions, judgments and subjective interpretations of accounting principles that have an impact on the assets, liabilities, revenues and expenses amounts reported. These estimates can also affect supplemental information contained in our external disclosures including information regarding contingencies, risk and financial condition. We believe our use of estimates and underlying accounting assumptions adhere to GAAP and are consistently and conservatively applied. We base our estimates on historical experience and on various other assumptions that we believe to be reasonable under the circumstances. Actual results may differ materially from these estimates under different assumptions or conditions. We continue to monitor significant estimates made during the preparation of our financial statements.

We believe the following is among the most critical accounting policies that impact our consolidated financial statements. We suggest that our significant accounting policies, as described in our condensed consolidated financial statements in the Summary of Significant Accounting Policies, be read in conjunction with this Management's Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations. See also Note 2 to our consolidated financial statements for further discussion of our accounting policies.

Accounts receivable

We maintain reserves for potential credit losses on accounts receivable and record them primarily on a specific identification basis. In order to establish reserves, we review the composition of accounts receivable and analyze historical bad debts, customer concentrations, customer credit worthiness, current economic trends and changes in customer payment patterns to evaluate the adequacy of these reserves. This analysis and evaluation requires the use of judgments and estimates. Because of the nature of the evaluation, certain of the judgments and estimates are subject to change, which may require adjustments in future periods.
 
18

 
Inventories
 
We value inventories at the lower of cost (determined on a weighted average basis) or market. When evaluating our inventory, we compare the cost with the market value and make allowance to write them down to market value, if lower. The determination of market value requires the use of estimates and judgment by our management.

Intangible assets

We evaluate intangible assets for impairment, at least on an annual basis and whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable from its estimated future cash flows. This evaluation requires the use of judgments and estimates, in particular with respect to recoverability. Recoverability of intangible assets, other long-lived assets and, goodwill is measured by comparing their net book value to the related projected undiscounted cash flows from these assets, considering a number of factors including past operating results, budgets, economic projections, market trends and product development cycles. If the net book value of the asset exceeds the related undiscounted cash flows, the asset is considered impaired, and a second test is performed to measure the amount of impairment loss.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

On July 1, 2009, we adopted Accounting Standards Update (※ASU§) No. 2009-01, ※Topic 105 - Generally Accepted Accounting Principles - amendments based on Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 168 , ※The FASB Accounting Standards Codification™ and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles§ (※ASU No. 2009-01§).  ASU No. 2009-01 re-defines authoritative GAAP for nongovernmental entities to be only comprised of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification™ (※Codification§) and, for SEC registrants, guidance issued by the SEC.  The Codification is a reorganization and compilation of all then-existing authoritative GAAP for nongovernmental entities, except for guidance issued by the SEC.  The Codification is amended to effect non-SEC changes to authoritative GAAP.  Adoption of ASU No. 2009-01 only changed the referencing convention of GAAP in Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

In October 2009, the FASB issued an Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") regarding accounting for own-share lending arrangements in contemplation of convertible debt issuance or other financing.  This ASU requires that at the date of issuance of the shares in a share-lending arrangement entered into in contemplation of a convertible debt offering or other financing, the shares issued shall be measured at fair value and be recognized as an issuance cost, with an offset to additional paid-in capital. Further, loaned shares are excluded from basic and diluted earnings per share unless default of the share-lending arrangement occurs, at which time the loaned shares would be included in the basic and diluted earnings-per-share calculation.  This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning on or after December 15, 2009, and interim periods within those fiscal years for arrangements outstanding as of the beginning of those fiscal years. We are currently evaluating the impact of this ASU on our consolidated financial statements.

On December 15, 2009, the FASB issued ASU No. 2010-06 Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures Topic 820 ※Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements§.  This ASU requires some new disclosures and clarifies some existing disclosure requirements about fair value measurement as set forth in Codification Subtopic 820-10. The FASB*s objective is to improve these disclosures and, thus, increase the transparency in financial reporting.  The adoption of this ASU will not have a material impact on our consolidated financial statements.

For information regarding these and other recent accounting pronouncements and their expected impact on our future financial condition or results of operations, see Note 2 to our consolidated financial statements.

Report of Independent Registered Public Accounting Firm
 
To the Board of Directors and
Stockholders of Bodisen Biotech, Inc.

We have audited the accompanying balance sheets of Bodisen Biotech, Inc (a Delaware corporation) and subsidiaries as of December 31, 2008 and 2009, and the related statements of income, stockholders equity and comprehensive income, and cash for the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008 and the financial statement schedule for the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008. Bodisen Biotech, Incs management is responsible for these financial statements. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audits.

We conducted our audits in accordance with the standards of the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (United States). Those standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. The company is not required to have, nor were we engaged to perform, an audit of its internal control over financial reporting. Our audit included consideration of internal control over financial reporting as a basis for designing audit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances, but not for the purpose of expressing an opinion on the effectiveness of the companys internal control over financial reporting. Accordingly, we express no such opinion. An audit also includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation. We believe that our audits provide a reasonable basis for our opinion.

In our opinion, the financial statements referred to above present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of Bodisen Biotech, Inc as of December 31, 2009 and 2008, and the results of its operations and its cash flows for the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008 in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

Note 1 - Organization and Basis of Presentation

Organization and Line of Business
 
Yang Ling Bodisen Biology Science and Technology Development Company Limited (※BBST§) was founded in the People*s Republic of China on August 31, 2001. BBST, located in Yang Ling Agricultural High-Tech Industries Demonstration Zone, is primarily engaged in developing, manufacturing and selling pesticides and compound organic fertilizers in the People*s Republic of China.

On February 24, 2004, Bodisen International, Inc. (※BII§), the non-operative holding company of BBST (accounting acquirer) consummated a merger agreement with Stratabid.com, Inc. (legal acquirer) (※Stratabid§), a Delaware corporation, to exchange 12,000,000 shares of Stratabid to the stockholders of BII, in which BII merged into Bodisen Holdings, Inc. (BHI), an acquisition subsidiary of Stratabid, with BHI being the surviving entity. As a part of the merger, Stratabid cancelled 3,000,000 shares of its issued and outstanding stock owned by its former president and declared a stock dividend of three shares on each share of its common stock outstanding for all stockholders on record as of February 27, 2004.

Stratabid was incorporated in the State of Delaware on January 14, 2000 and before the merger, was a start- up stage Internet based commercial mortgage origination business based in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

The exchange of shares with Stratabid has been accounted for as a reverse acquisition under the purchase method of accounting because the stockholders of BII obtained control of Stratabid. On March 1, 2004, Stratabid was renamed Bodisen Biotech, Inc. (the ※Company§). Accordingly, the merger of the two companies has been recorded as a recapitalization of the Company, with the Company (BII) being treated as the continuing entity. The historical financial statements presented are those of BII.

As a result of the reverse merger transaction described above the historical financial statements presented are those of BBST, the operating entity.

In March 2005, Bodisen Biotech Inc. completed a $3 million convertible debenture private placement through an institutional investor. Approximately $651,000 in incremental and direct expenses relating to this private placement has been amortized over the term of the convertible debenture. None of the expenses were paid directly to the institutional investor. The net proceeds from this offering were invested as initial start-up capital in a newly created wholly-owned Bodisen subsidiary by the name of ※Yang Ling Bodisen Agricultural Technology Co., Ltd. (※Agricultural§). In June 2005, Agricultural completed a transaction with Yang Ling Bodisen Biology Science and Technology Development Company Limited (※BBST§), Bodisen Biotech, Inc.*s operating subsidiary in China, which resulted in Agricultural owning 100% of BBST.

In June 2006, BBST created another wholly owned subsidiary in the Uygur autonomous region of Xinjiang, China by the name of Bodisen Agriculture Material Co. Ltd. (※Material§).

FOR THE YEARS ENDED DECEMBER 31, 2009 AND 2008

Note 2 每 Summary of Significant Accounting Policies

Reclassifications

Certain amounts in the 2008 consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to confirm with the 2009 presentation with no effect to previously reported net income (loss).

Use of Estimates

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions.  These estimates and assumptions affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. It is possible that accounting estimates and assumptions may be material to the Company due to the levels of subjectivity and judgment involved.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents include cash in hand and cash in time deposits, certificates of deposit and all highly liquid debt instruments with original maturities of three months or less.

Accounts Receivable

The Company maintains reserves for potential credit losses for accounts receivable. Management reviews the composition of accounts receivable and analyzes historical bad debts, customer concentrations, customer credit worthiness, current economic trends and changes in customer payment patterns to evaluate the adequacy of these reserves.  Reserves are recorded based on the Company*s historical collection history.

Advances to Suppliers

The Company advances to certain vendors for purchase of its material. The advances to suppliers are interest free and unsecured.

Inventories

Inventories are valued at the lower of cost (determined on a weighted average basis) or market. The Management compares the cost of inventories with the market value and allowance is made for writing down their inventories to market value, if lower.

Property & Equipment and Capital Work In Progress

Property and equipment are stated at cost. Expenditures for maintenance and repairs are charged to earnings as incurred; additions, renewals and betterments are capitalized. When property and equipment are retired or otherwise disposed of, the related cost and accumulated depreciation are removed from the respective accounts, and any gain or loss is included in operations. Depreciation of property and equipment is provided using the straight-line method for substantially all assets with estimated lives of:


Operating equipment

Vehicles
8 years
Office equipment

Buildings

Depreciation expense for the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008 was $599,960 and $364,640, respectively.

On December 31, 2009 and 2008, the Company had ※Capital Work in Progress§ representing the construction in progress of the Company*s manufacturing plant amounting $10,422,641 and $17,542,626 respectively. During the year ended December 31, 2009, $7,167,559 was transferred from construction in progress to property and equipment.

Marketable Securities

The Company applies the guidance of ASC Topic 320 ※Investments-Debt and Equity Securities,§ which requires investments in equity securities to be classified as either trading securities or available-for-sale securities.  Marketable securities that are bought and held principally for the purpose of selling them in the near term are classified as trading securities and are reported at fair value, with unrealized gains and losses recognized in earnings. Marketable equity securities not classified as trading are classified as available for sale, and are carried at fair market value, with the unrealized gains and losses, net of tax, included in the determination of comprehensive income and reported in shareholders* equity.

Long-Lived Assets

The Company applies the provisions of ASC Topic 360, ※Property, Plant, and Equipment,§ which addresses financial accounting and reporting for the impairment or disposal of long-lived assets. ASC 360 requires impairment losses to be recorded on long-lived assets used in operations when indicators of impairment are present and the undiscounted cash flows estimated to be generated by those assets are less than the assets carrying amounts. In that event, a loss is recognized based on the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the long-lived assets. Loss on long-lived assets to be disposed of is determined in a similar manner, except that fair values are reduced for the cost of disposal. Based on its review, the Company believes that as of December 31, 2009 and 2008, there was no significant impairment of its long-lived assets.
 
Intangible Assets

Intangible assets consist of Rights to use land and Fertilizers proprietary technology rights. The Company evaluates intangible assets for impairment, at least on an annual basis and whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying value may not be recoverable from its estimated future cash flows. Recoverability of intangible assets, other long-lived assets and, goodwill is measured by comparing their net book value to the related projected undiscounted cash flows from these assets, considering a number of factors including past operating results, budgets, economic projections, market trends and product development cycles. If the net book value of the asset exceeds the related undiscounted cash flows, the asset is considered impaired, and a second test is performed to measure the amount of impairment loss.

Fair Value of Financial Instruments

For certain of the Companys financial instruments, including cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash, accounts receivable, accounts payable, accrued liabilities and short-term debt, the carrying amounts approximate their fair values due to their short maturities. In addition, the Company has long-term debt with financial institutions. The carrying amounts of the line of credit and other long-term liabilities approximate their fair values based on current rates of interest for instruments with similar characteristics.


 
Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in active markets.

 
Level 2 inputs to the valuation methodology include quoted prices for similar assets and liabilities in active markets, and inputs that are observable for the asset or liability, either directly or indirectly, for substantially the full term of the financial instrument.

 
Level 3 inputs to the valuation methodology are unobservable and significant to the fair value measurement.

Revenue Recognition

The Company*s revenue recognition policies are in compliance with Staff accounting bulletin (SAB) 104. Sales revenue is recognized at the date of shipment to customers when a formal arrangement exists, the price is fixed or determinable, the delivery is completed, no other significant obligations of the Company exist and collectability is reasonably assured. Payments received before all of the relevant criteria for revenue recognition are satisfied are recorded as unearned revenue.

Advertising Costs

The Company expenses the cost of advertising as incurred or, as appropriate, the first time the advertising takes place. Advertising costs for the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008 were insignificant.

Stock-Based Compensation

The Company records stock-based compensation in accordance with ASC Topic 718, ※Compensation Stock Compensation.§  ASC 718 requires companies to measure compensation cost for stock-based employee compensation at fair value at the grant date and recognize the expense over the employees requisite service period. The Company recognizes in the statement of operations the grant-date fair value of stock options and other equity-based compensation issued to employees and non-employees. There were 536,000 options outstanding as of December 31, 2009.

Income Taxes

The Company accounts for income taxes in accordance with ASC Topic 740, ※Income Taxes.§ ASC 740 requires a company to use the asset and liability method of accounting for income taxes, whereby deferred tax assets are recognized for deductible temporary differences, and deferred tax liabilities are recognized for taxable temporary differences. Temporary differences are the differences between the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and their tax bases. Deferred tax assets are reduced by a valuation allowance when, in the opinion of management, it is more likely than not that some portion, or all of, the deferred tax assets will not be realized.  Deferred tax assets and liabilities are adjusted for the effects of changes in tax laws and rates on the date of enactment.

Under ASC 740, a tax position is recognized as a benefit only if it is ※more likely than not§ that the tax position would be sustained in a tax examination, with a tax examination being presumed to occur. The amount recognized is the largest amount of tax benefit that is greater than 50% likely of being realized on examination. For tax positions not meeting the ※more likely than not§ test, no tax benefit is recorded. The adoption had no effect on the Companys consolidated financial statements.

In March 2005, Bodisen Biotech Inc. formed Agricultural. Under Chinese law, a newly formed wholly owned subsidiary of a foreign company enjoys an income tax exemption for the first two years and a 50% reduction of normal income tax rates for the following 3 years. In order to extend such tax benefits, in June 2005, Agricultural completed a transaction with BBST, which resulted in Agricultural owning 100% of BBST.

Foreign Currency Transactions and Comprehensive Income

Accounting principles generally require that recognized revenue, expenses, gains and losses be included in net income.  Certain statements, however, require entities to report specific changes in assets and liabilities, such as gain or loss on foreign currency translation, as a separate component of the equity section of the balance sheet.  Such items, along with net income, are components of comprehensive income.  The functional currency of the Company*s Chinese subsidiaries is the Chinese Yuan Renminbi.  Translation gains of $8,644,969 and $8,117,004 at December 31, 2009 and 2008, respectively are classified as an item of other comprehensive income in the stockholders* equity section of the consolidated balance sheet.  During the years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008, other comprehensive income in the consolidated statements of operations and other comprehensive income included translation gains of $529,965 and $2,968,882, respectively.

Basic and Diluted Earnings Per Share

Earnings per share is calculated in accordance with the ASC Topic 260, ※Earnings Per Share.§  Basic earnings per share is based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding.  Diluted earnings per share is based on the assumption that all dilutive convertible shares and stock warrants were converted or exercised. Dilution is computed by applying the treasury stock method. Under this method, warrants are assumed to be exercised at the beginning of the period (or at the time of issuance, if later), and as if funds obtained thereby were used to purchase common stock at the average market price during the period.  There were 436,000 options as of December 31, 2009 that were excluded from the diluted loss per share calculation due to their anti-dilutive effect.

Statement of Cash Flows

In accordance ASC Topic 230, ※Statement of Cash Flows,§ cash flows from the Companys operations are calculated based upon the local currencies using the average translation rates. As a result, amounts related to assets and liabilities reported on the consolidated statements of cash flows will not necessarily agree with changes in the corresponding balances on the consolidated balance sheets.

Segment Reporting

ASC Topic 280, ※Segment Report,§ requires use of the ※management approach§ model for segment reporting. The management approach model is based on the way a company*s management organizes segments within the company for making operating decisions and assessing performance.  ASC Topic 280 has no effect on the Company*s consolidated financial statements as the Company consists of one reportable business segment.  All revenue is from customers in People*s Republic of China and all of the Company*s assets are located in People*s Republic of China.

Recent Accounting Pronouncements

On July 1, 2009, the Company adopted Accounting Standards Update (※ASU§) No. 2009-01, ※Topic 105 - Generally Accepted Accounting Principles - amendments based on Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 168 , ※The FASB Accounting Standards Codification™ and the Hierarchy of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles§ (※ASU No. 2009-01§).  ASU No. 2009-01 re-defines authoritative GAAP for nongovernmental entities to be only comprised of the FASB Accounting Standards Codification™ (※Codification§) and, for SEC registrants, guidance issued by the SEC.  The Codification is a reorganization and compilation of all then-existing authoritative GAAP for nongovernmental entities, except for guidance issued by the SEC.  The Codification is amended to effect non-SEC changes to authoritative GAAP.  Adoption of ASU No. 2009-01 only changed the referencing convention of GAAP in Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

In October 2009, the FASB issued an Accounting Standards Update ("ASU") regarding accounting for own-share lending arrangements in contemplation of convertible debt issuance or other financing.  This ASU requires that at the date of issuance of the shares in a share-lending arrangement entered into in contemplation of a convertible debt offering or other financing, the shares issued shall be measured at fair value and be recognized as an issuance cost, with an offset to additional paid-in capital. Further, loaned shares are excluded from basic and diluted earnings per share unless default of the share-lending arrangement occurs, at which time the loaned shares would be included in the basic and diluted earnings-per-share calculation.  This ASU is effective for fiscal years beginning on or after December 15, 2009, and interim periods within those fiscal years for arrangements outstanding as of the beginning of those fiscal years. The Company is currently evaluating the impact of this ASU on its consolidated financial statements.

On December 15, 2009, the FASB issued ASU No. 2010-06 Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures Topic 820 ※Improving Disclosures about Fair Value Measurements§.  This ASU requires some new disclosures and clarifies some existing disclosure requirements about fair value measurement as set forth in Codification Subtopic 820-10. The FASB*s objective is to improve these disclosures and, thus, increase the transparency in financial reporting.  The adoption of this ASU will not have a material impact on the Company*s consolidated financial statements.

Note 3 每 Principles of Consolidation

The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the accounts of Bodisen Biotech, Inc., its 100% wholly-owned subsidiaries Bodisen Holdings, Inc. (BHI), Yang Ling Bodisen Agricultural Technology Co., Ltd (Agricultural), which was incorporated in March 2005, and Sinkiang Bodisen Agriculture Material Co., Ltd. (Material), which was incorporated in June 2006, as well as the accounts of Agricultural*s 100% wholly- owned subsidiary Yang Ling Bodisen Biology Science and Technology Development Company Limited (BBST).  All significant inter-company accounts and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation.

During 2005, the Company purchased 1,031,884 (after 2 for 1 split in 2009) shares of China Natural Gas, Inc. (traded on the NASDAQ: CHNG) for $2,867,346. This investment was classified as available-for-sale and valued at fair value at each reporting period with the change being recorded to unrealized gain/loss in the company*s consolidated statement of stockholder*s equity.  However, in 2007, a shareholder of China Natural Gas instituted litigation challenging the validity of our ownership of the 1,031,884 shares.  A settlement was reached which the shareholder agreed to buy back the shares at $3.80 per share for a total of $3,921,159.  In October 2009, the Company sold the shares back the plaintiff.  As a result of the above transaction, the Company recorded a realized gain of $1,053,813 which is reflected in the consolidated statement of operations for the year ended December 31, 2009.

During 2008, the Company exchanged $3,291,264 of receivables for a 28.8% ownership interest in a Chinese company, Shanxi Jaili Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd (※Jaili§).  The Company had written down the value of this investment by $987,860 at December 31, 2008.  This investment was originally accounted for under the equity method and the Company recorded equity income in this investment through September 30, 2009.  During the fourth quarter of 2009, Jaili was purchased by China Pediatric Pharmaceutical, a public company.  After the transaction, the Company owned 18.8% of China Pediatric Pharmaceutical.  The Company then changed the accounting method for the investment from the equity method to the fair value method.  At the date of the change, the investment was valued at $2,829,732.  As of December 31, 2009, the fair value of the investment is $8,175,290 which is reflected in the consolidated balance sheet at December 31, 2009.  The unrealized gain of $5,345,558 is reflected as other comprehensive income in the consolidated statement of stockholder*s equity.

Note 6 -Other Long-term Assets

During 2006, the Company acquired a 19.5% and a 19.8% interest in two local companies by investing a total amount of $1,156,861 in cash.  One of these investments was sold during the first quarter of 2009 for $732,550 resulting in a loss of $130,336 and the other was sold during the second quarter of 2009 in exchange for inventory valued at $378,789 resulting in a loss of $81,332.

Note 13 每 Litigation

From time to time, we may become involved in various lawsuits and legal proceedings that arise in the ordinary course of business. Litigation is, however, subject to inherent uncertainties, and an adverse result in these or other matters may arise from time to time that may harm our business. Other than the matters described below, we are currently not aware of any such legal proceedings or claims that we believe would or could have, individually or in the aggregate, a material adverse affect on our business, financial condition, results of operations or liquidity.

In late 2006, various shareholders of our company filed eight purported class actions in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York against our company and certain of our officers and directors (among others), asserting claims under the federal securities laws. The complaints contain allegations about our prior financial disclosures and our internal controls and a prior, now-terminated relationship with a financial advisor. The complaints did not specify an amount of damages that plaintiffs seek.

The eight actions were Stephanie Tabor vs. Bodisen, Inc., et al., Case No. 06-13220 (filed November 2006), Fraser Laschinger vs. Bodisen, Inc., et al., Case No. 06-13254 (filed November 2006), Anthony DeSantis vs. Bodisen, Inc., et. al., Case No. 06-13454 (filed November 2006), Yuchen Zhou vs. Bodisen, Inc., et. al., Case No. 06-13567 (filed November 2006), William E. Cowley vs. Bodisen, Inc., et. al., Case No. 06-13739 (filed December 2006), Ronald Stubblefield vs. Bodisen, Inc., et. al., Case No. 06-14449 (filed December 2006), Adam Cohen vs. Bodisen, Inc., et. al., Case No. 06-15179 (filed December 2006) and Lawrence M. Cohen vs. Bodisen, Inc., et. al., Case No. 06-15399 (filed December 2006). In 2007, the Court consolidated each of the actions into a single proceeding. On September 26, 2008, the Court entered a judgment in favor of the Company and closed the case.  

In 2007, Ji Xiang, a shareholder of China Natural Gas (and son of its Chairman and CEO) instituted litigation in the Chinese court system in Shaanxi province challenging the validity of our ownership of 1,031,884 (2,063,768 pre stock split) shares of China Natural Gas common stock. We obtained these shares in September 2005 in a share transfer agreement and assert that we have fully performed our obligations under the agreement and are entitled to own the shares. The parties in the Chinese litigation have submitted their evidence and now await a decision from the Chinese court. Also, in January 2008, the same shareholder instituted litigation in the State of Utah District Court, Salt Lake County, against Yangling Bodisen Biotech Development Co. Ltd. and Interwest Transfer Co. (China Natural Gas*s transfer agent) seeking to prevent us from selling our shares in China Natural Gas. Plaintiff has obtained an order from the Utah court provisionally preventing us from selling the China Natural Gas shares pending a decision on the merits of the underlying dispute. In May 2009, Ji Xiang and Yangling entered into a settlement agreement through mediation in the Supreme Court of Shaanxi province. Pursuant to the settlement agreement, Xiang Ji agreed to withdraw the lawsuit he filed against Yangling in the State of Utah District Court, Salt Lake County, and Yangling agreed to sell back to Ji Xiang the 1,031,884 shares at a repurchase price of $3.80 per share, for an aggregate repurchase price of $3,921,159.

As of October 29, 2009, the Utah court had lifted the injunction preventing us from selling our shares in China Natural Gas and allowed for the certificate representing the 1,031,884 shares to be transferred to Ji Xiang.  In November 2009, the Company effected a transfer of the shares through a U.S. transfer agent in accordance with the settlement agreement among the parties.  The lawsuit in Utah was thereafter dismissed and has no further potential effect or impact upon the operation or financial condition of the Company.

ITEM 9A(T). CONTROLS AND PROCEDURES

Disclosure Controls and Procedures

As required by Rule 13a-15 under the Exchange Act, our management, including Bo Chen, our Chief Executive Officer, and Junyan Tong, our Chief Financial Officer, evaluated the effectiveness of the design and operation of our disclosure controls and procedures as of December 31, 2009.

Disclosure controls and procedures refer to controls and other procedures designed to ensure that information required to be disclosed in the reports we file or submit under the Securities Exchange Act is recorded, processed, summarized and reported within the time periods specified in the rules and forms of the SEC and that such information is accumulated and communicated to our management, including our chief executive officer and chief financial officer, as appropriate, to allow timely decisions regarding required disclosure. In designing and evaluating our disclosure controls and procedures, management recognizes that any controls and procedures, no matter how well designed and operated, can provide only reasonable assurance of achieving the desired control objectives, and management is required to apply its judgment in evaluating and implementing possible controls and procedures.

Management conducted its evaluation of disclosure controls and procedures under the supervision of our chief executive officer and our chief financial officer. Based on that evaluation, Messrs. Bo and Tong concluded that because of the material weakness in internal control over financial reporting described below, our disclosure controls and procedures were not effective as of December 31, 2009.

Management*s Report on Internal Control over Financial Reporting

Our management is responsible for establishing and maintaining adequate internal control over financial reporting as defined in Rules 13a-15(f) and 15d-15(f) under the Securities Exchange Act.  Our management is also required to assess and report on the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting in accordance with Section 404 of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (※Section 404§).   Management assessed the effectiveness of our internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2009.  In making this assessment, we used the criteria set forth by the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) in Internal Control 每 Integrated Framework.  

Notwithstanding the aforementioned controls implemented in December 2006, during management*s assessment of the effectiveness of internal control over financial reporting as of December 31, 2009, management identified deficiencies related to (i) the U.S. GAAP expertise of our internal accounting staff, (ii) a lack of segregation of duties within accounting functions, (iii) our internal risk assessment functions, and (iv) our communication functions.. Management believes that these deficiencies amount to a material weakness that render our internal controls over financial reporting ineffective as of December 31, 2009.

A material weakness (within the meaning of PCAOB Auditing Standard No. 5) is a deficiency, or a combination of deficiencies, in internal control over financial reporting, such that there is a reasonable possibility that a material misstatement of our annual or interim financial statements will not be prevented or detected on a timely basis.

In order to correct the foregoing deficiencies, we have taken the following remediation measures:
 
Although our accounting staff is professional and experienced in accounting requirements and procedures generally accepted in the PRC, management has determined that they require additional training and assistance in U.S. GAAP matters.   Management has determined that our internal audit function is also significantly deficient due to insufficient qualified resources to perform internal audit functions. We retained an outside consulting firm in September 2006, which has since been assisting us in the implementation of Section 404.

﹞ 
We have committed to the establishment of effective internal audit functions and have instituted various anti-fraud control and financial and account management policies and procedures to strengthen our internal controls over financial reporting.  Due to the scarcity of qualified candidates with extensive experience in U.S. GAAP reporting and accounting in the region, we were not able to hire sufficient internal audit resources before the end of 2009. However, we will increase our search for qualified candidates with assistance from recruiters and through referrals.

﹞ 
Due to our size and nature, segregation of all conflicting duties may not always be possible and may not be economically feasible.  However, to the extent possible, we will implement procedures to assure that the initiation of transactions, the custody of assets and the recording of transactions will be performed by separate individuals.

 
As of the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009, we have not yet established an effective risk assessment system that enables us to collect related information comprehensively and systematically, assess risks in a timely, realistic manner, and take appropriate measures to control risks effectively. The Company is working with its outside consultant to devise an effective risk assessment system and our Chief Financial Officer Junyan Tong is responsible for overseeing such measures.
 
21

 
 
As of the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009, we are working to strengthen efforts to establish an effective communication system with clear procedures that will enable us to collect, process and deliver information related to internal controls in a timely fashion.  Due to our limited staff, our Chief Financial Officer, Mr. Tong, will initially be primarily responsible for collecting and delivering such information among the different levels of Company management.

We believe that the foregoing steps will remediate the significant deficiency identified above, and we will continue to monitor the effectiveness of these steps and make any changes that our management deems appropriate.

Notwithstanding the conclusion that our internal control over financial reporting was not effective as of the end of the period covered by this report, the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer believe that the financial statements and other information contained in this annual report present fairly, in all material respects, our business, financial condition and results of operations.  Nothing has come to the attention of management that causes them to believe that any material inaccuracies or errors exist in our financial statements as of December 31, 2009.  The reportable conditions and other areas of our internal control over financial reporting identified by us as needing improvement have not resulted in a material restatement of our financial statements. Nor are we aware of any instance where such reportable conditions or other identified areas of weakness have resulted in a material misstatement of omission in any report we have filed with or submitted to the Commission.

Because of its inherent limitations, internal control over financial reporting may not prevent or detect misstatements. Projections of any evaluation of effectiveness to future periods are subject to the risk that controls may become inadequate because of changes in conditions, or that the degree of compliance with the policies and procedures may deteriorate.
 
Auditor Attestation

This annual report does not include an attestation report of our registered public accounting firm regarding internal control over financial reporting.  Management*s report was not subject to attestation by our registered public accounting firm pursuant to temporary rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission that permit us to provide only management*s report in this annual report.

 Changes in Internal Control over Financial Reporting

There were no changes in internal control over financial reporting (as defined in Rule 13a-15f under the Exchange Act) that occurred during the fourth quarter of 2009 that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

Board of Directors

A majority of the authorized number of directors constitutes a quorum of the Board for the transaction of business. The directors must be present at the meeting to constitute a quorum. However, any action required or permitted to be taken by the Board may be taken without a meeting if all members of the Board individually or collectively consent in writing to the action.

The board and its committees held the following number of meetings during the fiscal year of 2009:
 
Board of Directors

Compensation Committee
2
Nominating Committee

The meetings include meetings that were held by means of a conference telephone call, but do not include actions taken by unanimous written consent.  

Each director attended at least 75% of the total number of meetings of the board and those committees on which he served during the year. Our non-management directors did not meet in executive session during 2009.

Director Experience
 
The Board believes that each of the Company*s directors should possess the highest personal and professional ethics, integrity and values, and be committed to representing the long-term interests of the Company*s shareholders. When evaluating candidates for election to the Board, the Nominating Committee seeks candidates with certain qualities that it believes are important, including integrity, an objective perspective, good judgment, and leadership skills. The Board has also considered the fact that all of our directors have worked for, or served on the boards of directors of, a variety of companies in a range of industries. The Board believes that through their varying backgrounds, the Company*s directors bring a wealth of experiences, new ideas and solutions to the Board. Specifically, the Board has noted that our directors have the following skills and qualifications that, among others, have made them particularly suited to serve as a director of Bodisen:
 
Mr. Bo Chen is a founder of Bodisen and has served in executive level positions at Bodisen since 2004. He has extensive knowledge of Bodisen and the fertilizer and chemical industries.].
 
Ms. Qiong Wang is the former Chairwoman and CEO of Bodisen and also is a founder of Bodisen and has served in executive level positions at Bodisen since 2004.  She has extensive knowledge of Bodisen and the fertilizer and chemical industries andsubstantial experience in sales and marketing. Mr. Chenglin Guo is the independent director of Bodisen. He has substantial management and sales experience.
 
Committees

Our Board of Directors has a Nominating Committee and a Compensation Committee.

Due to Mr. McManus* death, currently only Chenglin Guo serves on the Nominating and Compensation Committees. The Board is currently in the process of looking for additional members to serve on these committees.

Compensation Committee

Our compensation committee assists the board in reviewing and approving the compensation structure of our directors and executive officers, including all forms of compensation to be provided to our directors and executive officers.  Members of the compensation committee are not prohibited from direct involvement in determining their own compensation.  Our chief executive officer may not be present at any committee meeting during which his compensation is deliberated.  The compensation committee is responsible for, among other things:

approving and overseeing the compensation package for our executive officers;

reviewing and making recommendations to the board with respect to the compensation of our directors;

Establish and review at least annually the Company*s general compensation policies applicable to our chief executive officer and other executive officers, evaluating the performance of our chief executive officer and other employees whose compensation is within the jurisdiction of the committee, and setting the compensation level of our chief executive officer and other executive officers based on this evaluation; and

reviewing periodically and making recommendations to the board regarding any long-term incentive compensation or equity plans, programs or similar arrangements, annual bonuses, employee pension and welfare benefit plans; and

reviewing and advising the board (and if deemed appropriate, retain consultants) with respect to regional and industry-wide compensation practices and trends in order to assess the adequacy and competitiveness of the our executive compensation programs among comparable companies in our industry.

Our board of directors has adopted a written compensation committee charter.  The charter is currently available on our website at www.bodisen.com.  Chenglin Guo, the director who currently serves on the compensation committee is an "independent" director based on the definition of independence in the listing standards of the National Association of Securities Dealers.

Nominating Committee

The corporate governance and nominating committee assists the board of directors in identifying individuals qualified to become our directors and in determining the composition of the board and its committees.  The corporate governance and nominating committee is responsible for, among other things:

identifying and recommending to the board nominees for election or re-election to the board, or for appointment to fill any vacancy;

identifying and recommending to the board the directors to serve as members of the board*s committees;

Regularly reporting its activities to the board; and
 
Evaluating the performance of the nominating committee.
 
24

 
Chenglin Guo, the director who currently serves on the nominating committee is an "independent" director based on the definition of independence in the listing standards of the National Association of Securities Dealers. The nominating committee has a written charter. The charter is currently available on our website at www.bodisen.com.

At this time, no additional specific procedures to propose a candidate for consideration by the nominating committee, nor any minimum criteria for consideration of a proposed nomination to the board, have been adopted.

Code of Ethics
 
We have adopted a code of ethics to apply to all of our executive officers, including our principal executive, financial and accounting officers, our directors, our financial managers and all employees are expected to adhere and promote regarding individual and peer responsibilities, and responsibilities to other employees, the Company, the public and other stakeholders.  Shareholders may request a free copy of the Code of Ethics by contacting the Investor Relations Department at our corporate offices by calling +86-29-87895373, or by sending an e-mail message to info@bodisen.com.

Audit Committee

At a July 30, 2007 meeting of our Board of Directors, our Board of Directors took action to disband our audit committee in light of the fact that our securities are no longer listed on a national securities exchange or listed in an automated inter-dealer quotation system of a national securities association, effective July 30, 2007.

At the present time, we believe that the members of Board of Directors are collectively capable of analyzing and evaluating our financial statements and understanding internal controls and procedures for financial reporting.  We do, however, recognize the importance of good corporate governance and intend to appoint an audit committee comprised entirely of independent directors, including at least one financial expert, in the near future.

Board Leadership and Risk Oversight

Our Chief Executive Officer also serves as Chairman of the Board. We have two other directors, one of whom is independent. The Board believes that the Company*s Chief Executive Officer is best situated to serve as Chairman of the Board because he is the director most familiar with our business and industry and the director most capable of identifying strategic priorities and executing our business strategy. In addition, having one person serve as both Chairman and Chief Executive Officer eliminates potential for confusion and provides clear leadership for the Company, with a single person setting the tone and managing our operations. The Board oversees specific risks, including, but not limited to:

 
appointing, retaining and overseeing the work of the independent auditors, including resolving disagreements between the management and the independent auditors relating to financial reporting;
     
 
approving all auditing and non-auditing services permitted to be performed by the independent auditors;

 
reviewing annually the independence and quality control procedures of the independent auditors;

 
Reviewing, approving, and overseeing risks arising from proposed related party transactions;

 
discussing the annual audited financial statements with the management;

 
meeting separately with the independent auditors to discuss critical accounting policies, management letters, recommendations on internal controls, the auditor*s engagement letter and independence letter and other material written communications between the independent auditors and the management; and
     
 
monitoring the risks associated with management resources, structure, succession planning, development and selection processes, including evaluating the effect the compensation structure may have on risk decisions.
 
Employment Agreements

There are currently no employment agreements between the Company and any of its named executive officers. Further details regarding executive compensation are provided in Item 11 of this report.

Family Relationships

Mr. Bo Chen and Ms. Qiong Wang are husband and wife. Mr. Chungsheng Wang, our Chief Operating Officer, and Ms. Qiong Wang, a member of our Board of Directors, are siblings.

Beneficial Ownership Reporting Compliance
 
Section 16(a) of the Exchange Act, as amended, requires our executive officers, directors and persons who beneficially own more than 10% of our shares of common stock to file reports of their beneficial ownership and changes in ownership (Forms 3, 4 and 5, and any amendment thereto) with the SEC. Executive officers, directors and greater-than-10% holders are required to furnish us with copies of all Section 16(a) forms they file.
 
Based upon a review of the Forms 3, 4 and 5 (and amendments thereto) furnished to us for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2009, we have determined that our directors, officers and greater-than-10% beneficial owners complied with all applicable Section 16 filing requirements.
 
Code of Ethics
 
The Company has adopted a Code of Ethics that applies to all officers, directors and employees of the Company, including the Company*s principal executive officer, principal financial officer, principal accounting officer and controller. A copy of the Company*s Code of Ethics is included as an exhibit to this annual report. Stockholders may request a free copy of the Code of Ethics by contacting the Investor Relations Department at our corporate offices by calling +011-86-29-87074957, or by sending an e-mail message to info@bodisen.com.
