NOTE 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies
Principles of Consolidation
The consolidated financial statements include the accounts of the Company and XiAn TV, which is a variable interest entity with the Company as the primary beneficiary. In accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (U.S. GAAP) regarding Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities, the Company identifies entities for which control is achieved through means other than through voting rights (a "variable interest entity" or "VIE") and determines when and which business enterprise, if any, should consolidate the VIE. The Company evaluated its participating interest in XiAn TV Media and concluded it is the primary beneficiary of XiAn TV Media, a variable interest entity. The Company consolidated XiAn TV Media and all significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the amounts reported in the financial statements and accompanying notes, including estimates of ultimate revenues and ultimate costs of film and television product, estimates of product sales that will be returned and the amount of receivables that ultimately will be collected, the potential outcome of future tax consequences of events that have been recognized in the Companys financial statements and loss contingencies. Actual results could differ from those estimates. To the extent that there are material differences between these estimates and actual results, the Companys financial condition or results of operations will be affected. Estimates are based on past experience and other assumptions that management believes are reasonable under the circumstances, and management evaluates these estimates on an ongoing basis.
Concentration of Credit Risk
The Company maintains cash balances at various financial institutions in the PRC which do not provide insurance for amounts on deposit. The Company has not experienced any losses in such accounts and believes it is not exposed to significant credit risk in this area.
The Company operates principally in the PRC and grants credit to its customers in this geographic region. Although the PRC is economically stable, it is always possible that unanticipated events in foreign countries could disrupt the Companys operations.
Fair Value of Financial Instruments
The fair value of financial instruments, which consist of cash, accounts receivable, notes receivable, prepaid and other assets, accounts payable, accrued liabilities, due to related parties and short term debt, were estimated to approximate their carrying values due to the immediate or relatively short maturity of these instruments.
Cash and Cash Equivalents
Cash and cash equivalents include cash on hand, demand deposits with banks and liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less.
Accounts receivable are stated at the amount management expects to collect from outstanding balances. Management provides for probable uncollected amounts through a charge to earnings and a credit to an allowance for bad debts based on its assessment of the current status of individual accounts. Balances are still outstanding after management has used reasonable collection efforts are written off through a charge to the allowance for bad debts and a credit to accounts receivable. There was no bad debt expense recorded for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011.
Fixed assets are recorded at cost and depreciated using the straight-line method, with an estimated 5% salvage value of original cost, over the estimated useful lives of the assets as follows:
Leasehold improvements are amortized using the straight-line method over the life of the asset, not to exceed the length of the lease. Repairs and maintenance costs are expensed as incurred.
The Company has the following intangible assets:
Intangible assets with finite lives are amortized over their estimated useful lives to a company and are reviewed for impairment in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Finite-lived intangible assets are amortized on a straight-line basis over the estimated useful economic lives of 10 years and the amortization expenses for the years ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 were $12,617 and $12,056, respectively.
Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
The Company evaluates for impairment losses 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 amount.
The Companys revenue primarily comes from the distribution of film and TV series broadcasting rights and investment return from the collectively produced film and TV series.
In accordance with ASC 926, Entertainment - Films, revenue from sale or licensing arrangements of a film shall be recognized when the following five revenue criteria are met: persuasive evidence of an arrangement exists, the film is completed and delivery has occurred, the license period of the arrangement has begun, the selling price is fixed or determinable, and collectability is reasonably assured.
The Company also generates advertising revenues from the sale of advertising services. In the majority of advertising arrangements, the Company acts as an agent in the transaction and records advertising revenues on a net basis. Customer payments received in advance of the performance of services are recorded as deferred revenue in the consolidated balance sheet, and are recognized as revenue when the advertising services are rendered.
Cost of Revenues
Film Costs - The Company capitalizes film costs in accordance with ASC 926. Film costs are stated at the lower of cost, less accumulated amortization, or fair value. Production overhead, a component of film costs, includes allocable costs of individuals or departments with exclusive or significant responsibility for the production of films. Substantially all of the Companys resources are dedicated to the production of its films. Capitalized production overhead does not include selling, general and administrative expenses. Interest expense on funds invested in production is capitalized into film costs until production is completed. In addition to the films being produced, costs of productions in development are capitalized as development film costs in accordance with the provisions of the ASC and are transferred to film production costs when a film is set for production. In the event a film is not set for production within three years from the time the first costs are capitalized or the film is abandoned, all such costs are generally expensed.
Film Cost Amortization - Once a film is released, film costs are amortized and participations and residual costs are accrued on an individual film basis in the proportion that the revenue during the period for each film (Current Revenue) bears to the estimated remaining total revenue to be received from all sources for each film (Ultimate Revenue) as of the beginning of the current fiscal period as required by the ASC. The amount of film costs that is amortized each period will depend on the ratio of Current Revenue to Ultimate Revenue for each film for such period. The Company makes certain estimates and judgments of Ultimate Revenue to be received for each film based on information received from its distributor and its knowledge of the industry. Ultimate Revenue does not include estimates of revenue that will be earned beyond ten years of a films initial theatrical release date.
Unamortized film production costs are evaluated for impairment when indicators of impairment are present on a film-by-film basis in accordance with the requirements of the ASC. If the fair value of a film is less than its unamortized film cost, the unamortized film costs will be written down to fair value determined using a discounted cash flow calculation.
The Company accounts for income tax under the provisions of ASC 740, Income Taxes, which requires the recognition of deferred tax assets and liabilities for the expected future tax consequences of the events that have been included in the financial statements or tax returns. Deferred income taxes are recognized for all significant temporary differences between tax and financial statements bases of assets and liabilities. Valuation allowances are established against net deferred tax assets when it is more likely than not that some portion or all of the deferred tax assets will not be realized. There were no deferred tax assets or liabilities at June 30, 2012 and 2011.
Comprehensive income consists of two components, net income and other comprehensive income (loss). Other comprehensive income refers to revenue, expenses, gains and losses that under generally accepted accounting principles are recorded as an element of stockholders equity but are excluded from net income. During the periods presented, other comprehensive income (loss) includes changes in cumulative translation adjustment from foreign currency translation.
Foreign Currency Translation
The Company uses United States dollars (U.S. Dollar or US$ or $) for financial reporting purposes. The subsidiaries within the Company maintain their books and records in Renminbi (RMB), the currency of the currency of China, the economic environment in which the Companys primary subsidiaries conduct their operations. Transactions denominated in foreign currencies are translated into U.S. dollar at exchange rate in effect on the date of the transactions. Exchange gains or losses on transactions are included in earnings.
The financial statements of the Company are translated into United States dollars in accordance with U.S. GAAP, using year-end rates of exchange for assets and liabilities, and average rates of exchange for the period for revenues, costs, and expenses and historical rates for the equity. Translation adjustments resulting from the process of translating the local currency financial statements into U.S. dollars are included in determining comprehensive income.
The exchange rates used for foreign currency translation were as follows (USD$1 = RMB):
Earnings (Loss) Per Share
The Company calculates net income (loss) per share in accordance with ASC 260, Earnings Per Share. Basic earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during each period. Diluted earnings per share is computed by dividing net income by the weighted average number of shares of common stock, common stock equivalents and potentially dilutive securities outstanding during each period. As of June 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively, the Company had no common stock equivalents that could potentially dilute future earnings per share.
Recent Accounting Pronouncements
In May 2011, the FASB issued ASU No. 2011-04, Fair Value Measurement (Topic 820): Amendments to Achieve Common Fair Value Measurement and Disclosure Requirements in U.S. GAAP and IFRSs. The ASU expands existing disclosure requirements and amends some fair value measurement principles. The ASU was effective for interim periods beginning on or after December 15, 2011, with early adoption prohibited and prospective application required. The adoption by the Company will not have a material effect on its financial statements except for enhanced disclosure in the notes to its financial statements.
In June 2011, the FASB issued an update to ASC 220, Comprehensive Income. This ASU requires entities to present components of comprehensive income in either a continuous statement of comprehensive income or two separate but consecutive statements that would include reclassification adjustments by component for items that are reclassified from other comprehensive income to net income on the face of the financial statements. In December 2011, the FASB issued an update to this ASU indefinitely deferring the implementation of the reclassification adjustments by component requirement of the ASU issued in June 2011. These ASUs are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2011. We will adopt the new presentation requirements of these ASUs retrospectively in the first quarter of fiscal year 2013.
In September 2011, the FASB issued an update to ASC 350, IntangiblesGoodwill and Other. This ASU amends the guidance in ASC 350-20 on testing for goodwill impairment. The revised guidance allows entities testing for goodwill impairment to have the option of performing a qualitative assessment before calculating the fair value of the reporting unit. The ASU does not change how goodwill is calculated or assigned to reporting units, nor does it revise the requirement to test annually for impairment. The ASU is limited to goodwill and does not amend the annual requirement for testing other indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment. The ASU is effective for annual and interim goodwill impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2011. We do not expect this ASU to have a material impact, if any, on our consolidated financial statements.
In December 2011, the FASB issued changes to the disclosure of offsetting assets and liabilities. These changes require an entity to disclose both gross information and net information about both instruments and transactions eligible for offset in the statement of financial position and instruments and transactions subject to an agreement similar to a master netting arrangement. The enhanced disclosures will enable users of an entitys financial statements to understand and evaluate the effect or potential effect of master netting arrangements on an entitys financial position, including the effect or potential effect of rights of setoff associated with certain financial instruments and derivative instruments. The Company does not expect the adoption to have a significant impact on its financial statements.
In July 2012, the Financial Accounting Standards Board issued ASU 2012-02, IntangiblesGoodwill and Other (Topic 350): Testing Indefinite-Lived Intangible Assets for Impairment, to simplify the manner in which entities test indefinite-lived intangible assets for impairment. The ASU permits an entity to first assess qualitative factors to determine whether events and circumstances indicate that it is more likely than not that the indefinite-lived intangible asset is impaired as a basis for determining whether it is necessary to perform a quantitative impairment test. The ASU is effective for annual and interim impairment tests performed for fiscal years beginning after September 15, 2012, with early adoption permitted. The Company does not expect the adoption to have a significant impact on its financial statements.
