BODISEN BIOTECH, INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
FOR THE NINE MONTHS ENDED SEPTEMBER 30, 2009 AND 2008
(UNAUDITED)

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§).

Basis of Presentation

The unaudited consolidated financial statements have been prepared by Bodisen Biotech, Inc. (the ※Company§), pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission.  The information furnished herein reflects all adjustments (consisting of normal recurring accruals and adjustments) which are, in the opinion of management, necessary to fairly present the operating results for the respective periods. Certain information and footnote disclosures normally present in annual consolidated financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America have been omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations. These consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and footnotes included in the Company*s Annual Report on Form 10-K.  The results of the nine months ended September 30, 2009 are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full year ending December 31, 2009.

Foreign Currency Translation

The accounts of the Company*s Chinese subsidiaries are maintained in the Chinese Yuan Renminbi (RMB) and the accounts of the U.S. parent company are maintained in the U.S. Dollar (USD). The accounts of the Chinese subsidiaries were translated into USD in accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards ("SFAS") No. 52, "Foreign Currency Translation" (codified in Financial Accounting Standards (※FASB§) Accounting Standards Codification (※ASC§) Topic 830),with the RMB as the functional currency for the Chinese subsidiaries. According to the Statement, all assets and liabilities were translated at the exchange rate on the balance sheet date, stockholders* equity are translated at the historical rates and statement of operations items are translated at the weighted average exchange rate for the period. The resulting translation adjustments are reported under other comprehensive income in accordance with SFAS No. 130, "Reporting Comprehensive Income§ (codified in FASB ASC Topic 220).

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:

On September 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008, the Company had ※Capital Work in Progress§ representing the construction in progress of the Company*s manufacturing plant amounting $10,385,966 and $17,542,626 respectively. During the nine months ended September 30, 2009, $7,166,581 was transferred from construction in progress to property and equipment.

Marketable Securities

Marketable securities consist of 1,031,884 (after a 2 for 1 stock split in 2009) shares of China Natural Gas, Inc. (traded on the NASDAQ: CHNG).  This investment is classified as available-for-sale as the Company plans to hold this investment for the long-term. This investment is reported at fair value with unrealized gains and losses included in other comprehensive income.  The fair value is determined by using the securities quoted market price as obtained from stock exchanges on which the security trades.  At September 30, 2009, the fair value is determined based upon proposed repurchase price for the shares.

Investment income, principally dividends, is recorded when earned. Realized capital gains and losses are calculated based on the cost of securities sold, which is determined by the "identified cost" method.

Long-Lived Assets

The Company applies the provisions of Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 144, ※Accounting for the Impairment or Disposal of Long-Lived Assets§ (※SFAS 144§) (codified in FASB ASC Topic 360), which addresses financial accounting and reporting for the impairment or disposal of long-lived assets and supersedes SFAS No. 121, ※Accounting for the Impairment of Long-Lived Assets and for Long-Lived Assets to be Disposed Of,§ and the accounting and reporting provisions of APB Opinion No. 30, ※Reporting the Results of Operations for a Disposal of a Segment of a Business.§ The Company periodically evaluates the carrying value of long-lived assets to be held and used in accordance with SFAS 144. SFAS 144 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 market value of the long-lived assets. Loss on long-lived assets to be disposed of is determined in a similar manner, except that fair market values are reduced for the cost of disposal. Based on its review, the Company believes that, as of September 30, 2009 there were no significant impairments 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

On January 1, 2008, the Company adopted SFAS No. 157, ※Fair Value Measurements§ (codified in FASB ASC Topic 820). SFAS No. 157 defines fair value, establishes a three-level valuation hierarchy for disclosures of fair value measurement and enhances disclosures requirements for fair value measures. The carrying amounts reported in the balance sheets for receivables and current liabilities each qualify as financial instruments and are a reasonable estimate of fair value because of the short period of time between the origination of such instruments and their expected realization and their current market rate of interest.  The three levels are defined as follow:

 
Level 1 inputs to the valuation methodology are quoted prices (unadjusted) 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.

As of September 30, 2009, the Company did not identify any assets and liabilities that are required to be presented on the balance sheet at fair value.

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 three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008 were insignificant.

Stock-Based Compensation

The Company accounts for its stock-based compensation in accordance with SFAS No. 123R, ※Share-Based Payment, an Amendment of FASB Statement No. 123§ (codified in FASB ASC Topic 718).  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 at September 30, 2009.

Income Taxes

The Company utilizes SFAS No. 109, ※Accounting for Income Taxes§ (codified in FASB ASC Topic 740), which requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns. Under this method, deferred income taxes are recognized for the tax consequences in future years of differences between the tax bases of assets and liabilities and their financial reporting amounts at each period end based on enacted tax laws and statutory tax rates applicable to the periods in which the differences are expected to affect taxable income. Valuation allowances are established, when necessary, to reduce deferred tax assets to the amount expected to be realized.

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 $8,117,263 and $8,117,004 at September 30, 2009 and December 31, 2008, respectively are classified as an item of other comprehensive income in the stockholders* equity section of the consolidated balance sheet.  During the nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, other comprehensive income in the consolidated statements of operations and other comprehensive income included translation gains of $259 and $2,925,857, respectively.

Basic and Diluted Earnings Per Share

Earnings per share is calculated in accordance with the Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 128 (SFAS No. 128), ※Earnings per share§ (codified in FASB ASC Topic 260).  SFAS No. 128 superseded Accounting Principles Board Opinion No.15 (APB 15). Earnings (loss) per share for all periods presented has been restated to reflect the adoption of SFAS No. 128. Basic net loss per share is based upon the weighted average number of common shares outstanding. Diluted net loss per share is based on the assumption that all dilutive convertible shares and stock options were converted or exercised. Dilution is computed by applying the treasury stock method. Under this method, options and 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.

The following is a reconciliation of the number of shares (denominator) used in the basic and diluted earnings per share computations for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008:

Statement of Cash Flows

In accordance with Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 95, ※Statement of Cash Flows§ (codified in FASB ASC Topic 230), cash flows from the Company*s operations are calculated based upon the local currencies. As a result, amounts related to assets and liabilities reported on the statement of cash flows will not necessarily agree with changes in the corresponding balances on the balance sheet.

Segment Reporting

Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 131 (※SFAS 131§), ※Disclosure About Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information§ (codified in FASB ASC Topic 280) 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. Reportable segments are based on products and services, geography, legal structure, management structure, or any other manner in which management disaggregates a company. SFAS 131 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. 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 US 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 US GAAP for nongovernmental entities, except for guidance issued by the SEC.  The Codification is amended to effect non-SEC changes to authoritative US GAAP.  Adoption of ASU No. 2009-01 only changed the referencing convention of US GAAP in  Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

In April 2009, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (※FASB§) issued FSP No. SFAS 157-4, ※Determining Fair Value When the Volume and Level of Activity for the Asset or Liability Have Significantly Decreased and Identifying Transactions That Are Not Orderly§ (※FSP No. SFAS 157-4§). FSP No. SFAS 157-4, which is codified in FASB ASC Topics 820-10-35-51 and 820-10-50-2, provides additional guidance for estimating fair value and emphasizes that even if there has been a significant decrease in the volume and level of activity for the asset or liability and regardless of the valuation technique(s) used, the objective of a fair value measurement remains the same. The Company adopted FSP No. SFAS 157-4 beginning April 1, 2009. This FSP had no material impact on the Company*s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
In April 2009, the FASB issued FSP No. FAS 115-2 and FAS 124-2, ※Recognition and Presentation of Other-Than-Temporary Impairments,§ which is codified in FASB ASC Topic 320-10. This FSP modifies the requirements for recognizing other-than-temporarily impaired debt securities and changes the existing impairment model for such securities. The FSP also requires additional disclosures for both annual and interim periods with respect to both debt and equity securities. Under the FSP, impairment of debt securities will be considered other-than-temporary if an entity (1) intends to sell the security, (2) more likely than not will be required to sell the security before recovering its cost, or (3) does not expect to recover the security*s entire amortized cost basis (even if the entity does not intend to sell). The FSP further indicates that, depending on which of the above factor(s) causes the impairment to be considered other-than-temporary, (1) the entire shortfall of the security*s fair value versus its amortized cost basis or (2) only the credit loss portion would be recognized in earnings while the remaining shortfall (if any) would be recorded in other comprehensive income. This FSP requires entities to initially apply the provisions of the standard to previously other-than-temporarily impaired debt securities existing as of the date of initial adoption by making a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. The cumulative-effect adjustment potentially reclassifies the noncredit portion of a previously other-than-temporarily impaired debt security held as of the date of initial adoption from retained earnings to accumulated other comprehensive income. The Company adopted FSP No. SFAS 115-2 and SFAS 124-2 beginning April 1, 2009. This FSP had no material impact on the Company*s financial position, results of operations or cash flows.

In April 2009, the FASB issued FSP No. SFAS 107-1 and APB 28-1, ※Interim Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments,§ which is codified in FASB ASC Topic 825-10-50.  This FSP essentially expands the disclosure about fair value of financial instruments that were previously required only annually to also be required for interim period reporting. In addition, the FSP requires certain additional disclosures regarding the methods and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value of financial instruments. These additional disclosures are required beginning with the quarter ending June 30, 2009.

In May 2009, the FASB issued SFAS No. 165, ※Subsequent Events,§ codified in FASB ASC Topic 855-10-05, which provides guidance to establish general standards of accounting for and disclosures of events that occur after the balance sheet date but before financial statements are issued or are available to be issued. SFAS No. 165 also requires entities to disclose the date through which subsequent events were evaluated as well as the rationale for why that date was selected. SFAS No. 165 is effective for interim and annual periods ending after June 15, 2009, and accordingly, the Company adopted this pronouncement during the second quarter of 2009. SFAS No. 165 requires that public entities evaluate subsequent events through the date that the financial statements are issued. The Company has evaluated subsequent events through November 13, 2009.

In June 2009, the FASB issued SFAS No. 166, ※Accounting for Transfers of Financial Assets 〞 an amendment of FASB Statement No. 140,§  codified as FASB ASC Topic 860, which requires entities to provide more information regarding sales of securitized financial assets and similar transactions, particularly if the entity has continuing exposure to the risks related to transferred financial assets. SFAS No. 166 eliminates the concept of a ※qualifying special-purpose entity,§ changes the requirements for derecognizing financial assets and requires additional disclosures. SFAS No. 166 is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2009. The Company does not believe the adoption of SFAS No. 166 will have an impact on its financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

In June 2009, the FASB issued SFAS No. 167, ※Amendments to FASB Interpretation No. 46(R),§ codified as FASB ASC Topic 810-10, which modifies how a company determines when an entity that is insufficiently capitalized or is not controlled through voting (or similar rights) should be consolidated. SFAS No. 167 clarifies that the determination of whether a company is required to consolidate an entity is based on, among other things, an entity*s purpose and design and a company*s ability to direct the activities of the entity that most significantly impact the entity*s economic performance. SFAS No. 167 requires an ongoing reassessment of whether a company is the primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity. SFAS No. 167 also requires additional disclosures about a company*s involvement in variable interest entities and any significant changes in risk exposure due to that involvement. SFAS No. 167 is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2009. The Company does not believe the adoption of SFAS No. 167 will have an impact on its financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

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.  The Company is working with counsel to effect transfer of the shares through a U.S. transfer agent in accordance with the settlement agreement among the parties.  The pending lawsuit in Utah will be dismissed immediately upon transfer of the shares to Ji Xiang and will thereafter have no further potential effect or impact upon the operation or financial condition of the Company.

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.
 
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 re-defines authoritative US 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 US GAAP for nongovernmental entities, except for guidance issued by the SEC.  The Codification is amended to effect non-SEC changes to authoritative US GAAP.  Adoption of ASU No. 2009-01 only changed the referencing convention of US GAAP in  Notes to the Consolidated Financial Statements.

In April 2009, the FASB issued FSP No. SFAS 157-4, ※Determining Fair Value When the Volume and Level of Activity for the Asset or Liability Have Significantly Decreased and Identifying Transactions That Are Not Orderly.§ FSP No. SFAS 157-4, which is codified in FASB ASC Topics 820-10-35-51 and 820-10-50-2, provides additional guidance for estimating fair value and emphasizes that even if there has been a significant decrease in the volume and level of activity for the asset or liability and regardless of the valuation technique(s) used, the objective of a fair value measurement remains the same. The Company adopted FSP No. SFAS 157-4 beginning April 1, 2009. This FSP had no material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
18

 
In April 2009, the FASB issued FSP No. FAS 115-2 and FAS 124-2, ※Recognition and Presentation of Other-Than-Temporary Impairments,§ which is codified in FASB ASC Topic 320-10. This FSP modifies the requirements for recognizing other-than-temporarily impaired debt securities and changes the existing impairment model for such securities. The FSP also requires additional disclosures for both annual and interim periods with respect to both debt and equity securities. Under the FSP, impairment of debt securities will be considered other-than-temporary if an entity (1) intends to sell the security, (2) more likely than not will be required to sell the security before recovering its cost, or (3) does not expect to recover the security*s entire amortized cost basis (even if the entity does not intend to sell). The FSP further indicates that, depending on which of the above factor(s) causes the impairment to be considered other-than-temporary, (1) the entire shortfall of the security*s fair value versus its amortized cost basis or (2) only the credit loss portion would be recognized in earnings while the remaining shortfall (if any) would be recorded in other comprehensive income. This FSP requires entities to initially apply the provisions of the standard to previously other-than-temporarily impaired debt securities existing as of the date of initial adoption by making a cumulative-effect adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings in the period of adoption. The cumulative-effect adjustment potentially reclassifies the noncredit portion of a previously other-than-temporarily impaired debt security held as of the date of initial adoption from retained earnings to accumulated other comprehensive income. The Company adopted FSP No. SFAS 115-2 and SFAS 124-2 beginning April 1, 2009. This FSP had no material impact on our financial position, results of operations or cash flows.
 
In April 2009, the FASB issued FSP No. SFAS 107-1 and APB 28-1, ※Interim Disclosures about Fair Value of Financial Instruments,§ which is codified in FASB ASC Topic 825-10-50.  This FSP essentially expands the disclosure about fair value of financial instruments that were previously required only annually to also be required for interim period reporting. In addition, the FSP requires certain additional disclosures regarding the methods and significant assumptions used to estimate the fair value of financial instruments. These additional disclosures are required beginning with the quarter ending June 30, 2009.

In May 2009, the FASB issued SFAS No. 165, ※Subsequent Events,§ codified in FASB  ASC Topic 855-10-05, which provides guidance to establish general standards of accounting for and disclosures of events that occur after the balance sheet date but before financial statements are issued or are available to be issued. SFAS No. 165 also requires entities to disclose the date through which subsequent events were evaluated as well as the rationale for why that date was selected. SFAS No. 165 is effective for interim and annual periods ending after June 15, 2009, and accordingly, we adopted this pronouncement during the second quarter of 2009. SFAS No. 165 requires that public entities evaluate subsequent events through the date that the financial statements are issued. We have evaluated subsequent events through November 13, 2009.

In June 2009, the FASB issued SFAS No. 166, ※Accounting for Transfers of Financial Assets 〞 an amendment of FASB Statement No. 140,§ codified as FASB ASC Topic 860, which requires entities to provide more information regarding sales of securitized financial assets and similar transactions, particularly if the entity has continuing exposure to the risks related to transferred financial assets. SFAS No. 166 eliminates the concept of a ※qualifying special-purpose entity,§ changes the requirements for derecognizing financial assets and requires additional disclosures. SFAS No.166 is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2009. We do not believe the adoption of SFAS No.166 will have an impact on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

In June 2009, the FASB issued SFAS No. 167, ※Amendments to FASB Interpretation No. 46(R),§ codified as FASB ASC Topic 810-10, which modifies how a company determines when an entity that is insufficiently capitalized or is not controlled through voting (or similar rights) should be consolidated. SFAS No. 167 clarifies that the determination of whether a company is required to consolidate an entity is based on, among other things, an entity*s purpose and design and a company*s ability to direct the activities of the entity that most significantly impact the entity*s economic performance. SFAS No. 167 requires an ongoing reassessment of whether a company is the primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity. SFAS No. 167 also requires additional disclosures about a company*s involvement in variable interest entities and any significant changes in risk exposure due to that involvement. SFAS No.167 is effective for fiscal years beginning after November 15, 2009. We do not believe the adoption of SFAS No. 167 will have an impact on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows.

Results of Operations

Three Months Ended September 30, 2009 as Compared to Three Months Ended September 30, 2008

Revenue.  We generated revenues of $472,957 for the three months ended September 30, 2009, a decrease of $1,223,590 or 72.1%, compared to $1,696,547 for the three months ended September 30, 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.

Gross Profit.  We achieved a gross profit (loss) of $(30,573) for the three months ended September 30, 2009, a decrease of $698,231 or 104.6%, compared to $667,658 for the three months ended September 30, 2008.  The decrease in gross profit was primarily attributable to the decrease in revenue.  Gross margin (gross profit (loss) as a percentage of revenues), was (6.5%) for the three months ended September 30, 2009, compared to 39.4% for the three months ended September 30, 2008.  The decrease was primarily attributable to higher material cost and a decrease in the selling price for our products as mentioned above.

Operating expenses.  We incurred net operating expenses of $1,081,825 for the three months ended September 30, 2009, a decrease of $4,105,457 or 79.1%, compared to $5,187,282 for the three months ended September 30, 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.

Aggregated selling expenses accounted for $15,816 of our operating expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2009, a decrease of $1,776,357 or 99.1%, compared to $1,776,357 for the three months ended September 30, 2008.  The decrease in our aggregated selling expenses is primarily attributable to a decrease in marketing costs and the decrease of sales.  

General and administrative expenses accounted for the remainder of our net operating expenses of $1,066,009 for the three months ended September 30, 2009, a decrease of $2,329,100 or 68.6%, compared to $3,395,109 for the three months ended September 30, 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 during the three months ended September 30, 2008.  No such write offs occurred during the three months ended September 30, 2009.

Non Operating Income and Expenses.  We had total non-operating income of $177,826 for the three months ended September 30, 2009, a decrease of $9,783 or 5.2%, compared to $187,099 for the three months ended September 30, 2008.  Other income (expense) was $(503) for the three months ended September 30, 2009 compared to $173,749 for three months ended September 30, 2008.    Also included in non-operating income (expense) for the three months ended September 30, 2009 is $177,826 related to equity income of an investment that we account for under the equity method.
 
Net Income.  For the foregoing reasons, we had a net loss of $935,082 for the three months ended September 30, 2009, a decrease of $3,397,443 or 78.4%, compared to $4,332,171 for the three months ended September 30, 2008.  We had loss per share of $0.05 and $0.24 for the three months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2009 as Compared to Nine Months Ended September 30, 2008

Revenue.  We generated revenues of $3,078,485 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, a decrease of $693,116 or 18.4%, compared to $3,771,601 for the nine months ended September 30, 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.
 
20


Gross Profit.  We achieved a gross profit of $358,240 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, a decrease of $1,093,342 or 75.3%, compared to $1,451,582 for the nine months ended September 30, 2008.  The decrease in gross profit was primarily attributable to a decline in revenue and higher cost of revenues due to higher material costs.  Gross margin (gross profit as a percentage of revenues), was 11.6% for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to 38.5% for the nine months ended September 30, 2008.  The decrease was primarily attributable to higher material costs and a decrease in the selling price for our products as mentioned above.   

Operating expenses.  We incurred net operating expenses of $354,781 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, a decrease of $3,440,229 or 90.7%, compared to $3,795,010 for the nine months ended September 30, 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.

Aggregated selling expenses accounted for $42,934 of our operating expenses for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, a decrease of $2,127,418 or 98.0%, compared to $2,170,352 for the nine months ended September 30, 2008.  The decrease in our aggregated selling expenses is primarily attributable to a decrease in marketing costs.  During the nine months ended September 30, 2009 we also recognized a loss on the disposal of property and equipment of $104,254.  We had no such loss during the nine months ended September 30, 2008.  General and administrative expenses accounted for the remainder of our net operating expenses of $207,593 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, a decrease of $1,417,065 or 87.2% compared to $1,624,658 for the nine months ended September 30, 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 during the three months ended September 30, 2008.  No such write offs occurred during the three months ended September 30, 2009.

Non Operating Income and Expenses.  We had total non-operating income of $271,490 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, an increase of $117,395 or 76.2%, compared to $154,095 for the nine months ended September 30, 2008.  Total non-operating income includes interest income of $396 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 compared to $154,095 for nine months ended September 30, 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 nine months ended September 30, 2009 is $(211,639) related to the loss on the sale of two investments and $484,728 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 $274,949 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, an increase of $2,422,742 or 112.8%, compared to a net loss of $2,147,793 for the nine months ended September 30, 2008.  We had earnings (loss) per share of $0.01 and $(0.12) for the nine months ended September 30, 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 nine months ended September 30, 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.

Cash Flows

Operating.  We used $643,097 of cash for operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 compared to $2,435,251 provided by our operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2008.  The decrease in the use of cash in operating activities is principally due to the decrease in advances to suppliers during the nine months ended September 30, 2008.

Investing.  Our investing activities generated $720,369 of cash for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, compared to  $2,931,264 of cash used in investing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2008.  The increase is primarily attributable to a decrease in construction in progress in 2009 compared to 2008 and proceeds from the sale of assets in 2009.

Financing.  We had no cash provided by financing activities for the nine months ended September 30, 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.


Not Applicable.

ITEM 4.         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 September 30, 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.
 
22


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 September 30, 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 nine months ended September 30, 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 September 30, 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 September 30, 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 the first quarter 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 nine months ended September 30, 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.
 
As of the nine months ended September 30, 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 September 30, 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.

Changes in internal control over financial reporting

There have been no changes in our internal controls over financial reporting during our first fiscal quarter that have materially affected, or are reasonably likely to materially affect, our internal control over financial reporting.

PART II 每 OTHER INFORMATION

ITEM 1.         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 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.

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 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.  The Company is working with counsel to effect transfer of the shares through a United States transfer agent in accordance with the settlement agreement among the parties.  The pending lawsuit in Utah will be dismissed immediately upon transfer of the shares to Ji Xiang and will thereafter have no further potential effect or impact upon the operation or financial condition of the Company.
