Aquaculture Operations

Revenue from fishery increased by $16,298,809 or 151% to $27,088,699 for the three months ended September 30, 2012 from $10,789,890 for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The increase was primarily due to our increased contract service income from fishery, Wholesale Center 1 and prawn development contracts and sale of fish for the three months ended September 30, 2012 versus consulting income and sale of fish for the three months ended September 30, 2011.

As of September 30, 2012, Capital Award ("CA") had four fishery development projects in progress, and sales of fish (sleepy-cod) generated from two of the farms; their status summarized as follows:

The 1st Demonstration fish farm, situated at the district of  Enping City operating under "Jiangman A Power Fishery Development Co. Ltd." ("Fish Farm 1"), was built and completed for operation in February 2011 and is underway with production.  During the third quarter of  2012, CA sold just over 493,700 sleepy-cod weighing between 516g to 628g per fish from Fish Farm 1 compared to the second quarter of 2012 with just under 260,000 fish being sold, and purchased from our contracted grower (supplier) over 402,000 fish weighing between 250g to 350g per fish. Inventory at Fish Farm 1 was estimated at 60,200 fish as of September 30, 2012.

The 1st Demonstration prawn farm is also situated in the district of Enping City. The development of a prawn grow-out farm ("Prawn Farm 1") was 90% complete as of September 30, 2012, and is now running test trials expecting production to start before year-end of 2012.

The 2nd Fish (and Eel) Farm ("Fish Farm 2") is situated in the District of Jiangman City. Its development began in May 2011, and the Company is expecting its Phase 1 to be completed during  2012, and Phase 2 development, (involving the grow-out farms, the nursery fingerling farm, the Research and Development Station and all other associated facilities) to be underway in January 2013 with production operations beginning by year end of 2013.

The main work in progress in Phase 1's development during the Company's first quarter of 2012 was on the construction of a new road leading from the external main access road to the project site, and the construction of a new bridge connecting the new road to the site.  The road and bridgework was completed by July 1, 2012 and presently provides access for heavy equipment to the project site for work on drainage construction. Management expects that landfill preparation to construct the Re-circulating Aquaculture System ("RAS") farms will begin in early 2013.

As mentioned above, work on the fish and eel farm  Fish Farm 2 is still in progress, but is being delayed because the property is situated on an islet that is making drainage extremely difficult and costly.  In response, we are engineering a solution that should resolve this problem.

The 2nd  prawn farm ("Prawn Farm 2") is situated in the District of Zhong Shan City. Its development was begun in November 2011. As of September 30, 2012 Phase 1 work in progress is as follows:

  • Boundary fencing (2.3 Km) (50% completed);
  • Heating room(completed);and
  • Third nursery station for nurturing high-value prawn flies (completed).

The Company's application for a permit to import the high-value brood-stock prawns and to sell its flies to local growers has been tentatively approved by the authorities pending the completion of the boundary fence, which is the last prerequisite necessary for official approval.

Phase 2 of the development is being carried out on an adjacent 200 Mu (132,000 square meters) block of land. Construction began in May of 2012, which was extended into two (2) stages of construction as a result of quadrupling the size and scope of the project from the originally planned 50 Mu (33,000 square meters).  The first stage is anticipated to be completed by December 31, 2013, and the second by April 30, 2014.  As of September 30, 2012, 53% of Stage 1 construction had been  completed.

Production of Mexican prawn flies is operating smoothly, with the Company having produced and sold over 165 million flies in the third quarter of  2012 and generating over $400,000 in sales revenue for the quarter. Respectively, CA earns income from Farm 2 in fixed monthly service fees and in sales commissions as the farm's marketing and sales agent until such time as Prawn Farm 2 becomes a Sino Foreign Joint Venture Company ("SJVC"), allowing the Company to include its revenue within the consolidated financial statements. The Company is preparing documents to apply for its SJVC with the relevant authorities. One of the documents, the environmental impact study report, is requiring a substantial amount of time, and therefore management anticipates that this  SJVC will be  approved sometime during the third quarter of  2013.

During the third quarter, operations at the contracted 600 Mu open dam fish farm sold over 315,400 sleepy cod weighing between 505g to 545g per fish with current inventory estimated at 490,680 fish at the end of the quarter.

On August 16, 2012 CA began development of a new project, namely an additional Prawn Grow-out Farm (Prawn Farm 3) at Unit 1, Front Block A, No. 498, Bei Da Road, Huangyuan County, Xining City, QuingHai Province China.

Cattle Farm, Beef and Fertilizer Operations

Revenue from the cattle farm increased by $6,451,054 or 310%  to $7,266,365 for the three months ended September 30, 2012 from $2,078,099 for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The increase was primarily due to increased development contract service of cattle farms for the three months ended September 30, 2012.

Revenue from beef decreased by $806,114 or 17% to $3,785,964 for the three months ended September 30, 2012 from $4,592,078 for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The decrease was primarily due to the fact that calves grow and became saleable beef cattle during this quarter.

Revenue from organic fertilizer increased by $1,710,687 for the three months ended September 30, 2012 from $0 for the three months ended September 30, 2011.  The increase was primarily due to the start-up of the new business of organic fertilizer during the first quarter of 2012.

As of September 30, 2012, the Company had three separate entities operating within this division plus an additional project in development of another cattle farm in the Enping district which is described in the quarterly report on Form 10-Q for the second quarter of 2012.

Sanjiang Yi Li Agriculture Development Co. Ltd. ("SJYLA")

SJYLA conducted the following operations during the third quarter of  2012:

  • Sold 3,971 MT and manufactured 5,047 MT of organic fertilizer with end of quarter inventory at 5,989 MT;
  • Sold 879 MT and produced 24,866 MT of livestock feed with end of quarter inventory at 25,391 MT;
  • Sold 1,290 head of 13+ month-old cattle with end of quarter inventory at 1,118 head; and saw its restaurant operations continue to perform well.
  • SJYLA will apply the loan proceeds of RMB 20 million obtained from the Agriculture Bank of China to the development of the new enzyme factory that will be developed on a block of land adjacent to the corporate building, the new concentrated livestock feed manufacturing factory on another piece of land adjacent to the existing property, and other associated developments.

The Company is exploring the possibility of a new joint venture with a reputable and experienced local value-added beef processing firm to jointly develop a slaughter house with a boning factory that will be built on an adjacent site (90 Mu) in an effort to reduce the learning curve in establishing this type of operation.

On September 17, 2012, the Company, through MEIJI, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company incorporated in Macau, China, acquired a total of 75% equity interest in  the Enping demonstration Cattle Farm ("Cattle Farm 1") and became the controlling shareholder of the subsidiary. Work in progress continued during the third quarter of  2012, constructing more cattle houses to house more than 600 head of cattle in the fourth quarter of  2012.

Cattle sales of Cattle Farm 1 and MEIJI during the third quarter of 2012

MEIJI, as the marketing agent of Cattle Farm 1, has sold 256 head of cattle weighting between 668Kg to 726Kg per head to the Guangzhou cattle wholesale markets and bought/inventoried 240 head of young cattle weighting between 162Kg to 168Kg per head during the third quarter of  2012.

The Company executed a new Consulting and Servicing Contract for MEIJI in the second quarter of 2012 to build "Cattle Farm 2 Enping". On May 25, 2012, a Sino Joint Venture Agreement (an "SJVA") was executed between MEIJI and another group of Chinese businessmen for the development and  construction of a cattle farm at a 500 Mu site in YaneXiaoban Village, Enping District for the growth of cattle and sheep using our aromatic-feed formula and our free ranging system.

As of September 30, 2012, 59% of the work in progress on the Phase (1) development of Cattle Farm 2 was completed, with a view  to completing this phase on or before May 2013.

Hunan Shenghua Yi Li Agriculture Co. Ltd. ("HSYLA")

As of April 30, 2012 development and construction work on the mixed fertilizer manufacturing facility for HSYLA was being carried out consisting of a 7,000 square meter production and storage factory, external fencing to cover the production area of about 11.55 acres of land, internal roads, landscaping, drainage, a 300 square meter office, staff quarters that will provide accommodation for up to 25 workers and all related basic infrastructure, etc.  As of September 30, 2012, construction on one of the production and manufacturing buildings was completed, production and packaging plants are being installed, and part of the fermentation and germination building was partially finished to enable the installation of plant and equipment.

Management is excited by the test results of its organic fertilizer being applied by fresh-water lake fish growers to the lakes where their fish are grown which have been shown to enhance water quality and protein enriched enzymatic fish feed, which is in line with the PRC Government's current policy to discourage lake fish growers from applying mineral rich fertilizer to their lakes.  The Company also has received positive feedback from regional grape growers who are pleased with the organic fertilizer's results as well. HSYLA has sold more than 4,000 MT of fertilizer during the third quarter of 2012, 60% of which was supplied to lake fish growers. Potentially, if all continues well with the test results, there may be sales of up to 30,000 MT/year to fish growers throughout the region.  

Plantation Operations

Revenue from plantation of flowers increased by $3,995,787 or 123% to $7,236,186 for the three months ended September 30, 2012 from $3,240,399 for the three months ended September 30, 2011. The increase was primarily due to the increase of wholesale prices in fresh and dried flowers  during the three months ended September 30, 2012.

Harvest results as of September 30, 2012 were much better than the same period last year, where more than 27 million pieces of fresh flowers were harvested, but it is still below our expectations due to disease problems. However, the Company managed to purchase from external growers roughly an additional 20 million pieces of fresh flowers for drying. Coupled with the higher sales price of HU flowers this season, revenue of US$8.8M generated during the third quarter of 2012 was much healthier than the same period last year when no more than $3.24M in revenue was generated as a result of dry season.

Marketing and Distribution Network

Renovation on the Seafood wholesale shops and Processing Factory at Guangzhou's new wholesale food market on lots 206 through 216 remains in progress for our first wholesale distribution center consisting of a cold storage facility including quick freezing, freezer and chill rooms, a processing and packaging area, and a retail outlet for live and frozen seafood, which the Company refers to as its Wholesale and Seafood Processing Shop ("Wholesale 1").

As of September 30, 2012, all refrigerated cold storage, a small sales office, frozen seafood shop, and the process factory were completed with work in progress continuing on the live seafood shop. Management is expecting Wholesale 1 to commence operations during the fourth quarter of 2012.

On August 15, 2012, Guangzhou YiLi Na Wei Trading Co. Ltd. granted a consulting and service contract to the Company to develop a beef wholesale shop on lots 217 to 223, including the second and the third floors of existing facilities, in the GZ Market to include cold and dry storage, value added processing and packaging, a beef wholesale shop, sales office, and staff quarters, etc.

Renovation and development work is in progress with completion projected by July 2013. However, management expects that sufficient progress will have been made to allow the beef wholesale shop to begin operating by November 30, 2012 simultaneously with Wholesale 1's operation.

Progress on Import and Export of Seafood

As of September 30, 2012, Wholesale 1 has frozen seafood inventory in Cod Fish imported from Norway, Cuttlefish, Squids and Ribbonfish imported from Malaysia and Prawn meats packed in our facility in preparation of Wholesale 1's business operations expected to open in the fourth quarter of 2012.

Progress and development on the Restaurant Chain

The Company is negotiating a consulting and service contract with Guangzhou City Wang XiangCheng Enterprise Management Consulting Co. Ltd. ("WXCE") to build and develop a central kitchen with a distribution center on another block of 20 shops in the Guangzhou Market that will facilitate up to 60 catering outlets and/or restaurants in the Guangzhou City area. If this contract gets underway it will help to accelerate our marketing plans in 2013 for the sale and marketing our line of products.

One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsiv...
The Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market will grow to $6.4B by 2018. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Seth Bostock, CEO of IndependenceIT, will begin by walking the audience through the evolution of Workspace as-a-Service, where it is now vs. where it going. To look beyond the desktop we must understand exactly what WaaS is, who the users are, and where it is going in the future. IT departments, ISVs and service providers must look to workflow and automation capabilities to adapt to growing demand and the rapidly changing workspace model.
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps stil...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to evolve the way the world does business; however, understanding how to apply it to your company can be a mystery. Most people struggle with understanding the potential business uses or tend to get caught up in the technology, resulting in solutions that fail to meet even minimum business goals. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jesse Shiah, CEO / President / Co-Founder of AgilePoint Inc., showed what is needed to leverage the IoT to transform your business. He discussed opportunities and challenges ahead for the IoT from a market and technical point of vie...
Hadoop as a Service (as offered by handful of niche vendors now) is a cloud computing solution that makes medium and large-scale data processing accessible, easy, fast and inexpensive. In his session at Big Data Expo, Kumar Ramamurthy, Vice President and Chief Technologist, EIM & Big Data, at Virtusa, will discuss how this is achieved by eliminating the operational challenges of running Hadoop, so one can focus on business growth. The fragmented Hadoop distribution world and various PaaS solutions that provide a Hadoop flavor either make choices for customers very flexible in the name of opti...
The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.
Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) are increasing at an unprecedented rate. The threat landscape of today is drastically different than just a few years ago. Attacks are much more organized and sophisticated. They are harder to detect and even harder to anticipate. In the foreseeable future it's going to get a whole lot harder. Everything you know today will change. Keeping up with this changing landscape is already a daunting task. Your organization needs to use the latest tools, methods and expertise to guard against those threats. But will that be enough? In the foreseeable future attacks w...
Disruptive macro trends in technology are impacting and dramatically changing the "art of the possible" relative to supply chain management practices through the innovative use of IoT, cloud, machine learning and Big Data to enable connected ecosystems of engagement. Enterprise informatics can now move beyond point solutions that merely monitor the past and implement integrated enterprise fabrics that enable end-to-end supply chain visibility to improve customer service delivery and optimize supplier management. Learn about enterprise architecture strategies for designing connected systems tha...
Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...
Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty

Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected. This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, will focus on how to set up a cloud data governance program and s...
