The increase in the Company's total revenue was mainly due to higher machinery and equipment sales and revenue from roadside assistance and software development businesses which were acquired in December 2021.

Revenue from machinery and equipment sales increased by approximately $0.9 million, or 77%, from approximately $1.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 to approximately $2.0 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022. The increase is mainly due to sales of newly developed jigging machine amounting to approximately $1.0 million.

Sales of the Company's environmental-friendly construction materials decreased by approximately $0.3 million, or 47%, from approximately $0.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 to approximately $0.3 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022. The decrease was due to a decrease in demand resulting from the downturn of the national construction market under the impact of COVID-19.

Municipal construction includes projects known as sponge city projects. The Company's environmental-friendly construction materials, such as brick and block, may be used in these municipal construction projects. Revenue from municipal construction projects in the Company's continuing operations increased by $111,014, or 100%, for the six months ended June 30, 2022, as compared to nil for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Revenue from other services was approximately $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022, which was generated by the Company's newly acquired subsidiary, Hainan Yile IoT Technology Co., Ltd., a PRC limited liability company ("Hainan Yile IoT"). Hainan Yile IoT provides roadside services to drivers within Hainan Province, China, through the Company's network of roadside services providers of tow providers and automotive repair services.  Through Hainan Yile IoT, the Company is also engaged in the design, development and sales of customized software solutions based on client specifications.

Cost of Revenues

The Company's total cost of revenues increased by approximately $0.9 million, or 53.6%, to approximately $2.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 from approximately $1.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. Cost of revenues from third-party customers increased by approximately $0.4 million, or 26.2%, from approximately $1.6 million in the six months ended June 30, 2021 to approximately $2.0 million in the six months ended June 30, 2022, while cost of revenues from related party customers increased by approximately $0.5 million, or 550%, from $85,710 in the six months ended June 30, 2021 to approximately $0.6 million in the six months ended June 30, 2022. The increase in the Company's total cost of revenue was in line with revenue increase. As a percentage of revenues, the cost of revenues decreased by 6.2% to 87.0% in the six months ended June 30, 2022 from 93.3% in the six months ended June 30, 2021.

Cost of machinery and equipment sales increased by approximately $0.9 million, or 92%, from approximately $0.9 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 to approximately $1.8 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022. The increase was primarily due to the increase in revenue, as well as increase in costs of raw material and labor in 2022.

Cost of the Company's environmental-friendly construction materials decreased by approximately $0.2 million, or 34%, from approximately $0.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021 to approximately $0.5 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022. The decrease was due to less construction materials sold in downturn of the national construction market. Since the Company had fixed cost which did not change as a result of the change in sales, the decrease in its cost of sales is not as significant as the decrease in the sales of construction materials.

Cost of municipal construction projects in the Company's continuing operations amounted to approximately $45,000. There was no cost of sales for municipal construction projects for the six months ended June 30, 2021, because the Company did not have any revenue from this segment.

Cost of other services amounted to approximately $215,000. There was no cost of other services for the six months ended June 30, 2021, because this business segment was acquired in December 2021.

Gross Profit

The Company's gross profit increased by approximately $0.3 million, or 217.8%, to approximately $0.4 million for the six months ended June 30, 2022 from approximately $0.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2021. Gross profit margin was 13.0% for the six months ended June 30, 2022, as compared with 6.7% for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The increase in gross profit margin by 6.2% was primarily attributable to high gross profit margin of other services.

Gross profit for machinery and equipment products in the Company's continuing operations increased by approximately $21,000 to approximately $235,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, as compared to approximately $214,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2021. Gross profit margin for this segment was 12% and 19% for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Gross profit margin decreased due to increase in purchase price of raw materials for equipment, such as steel and certain electronic parts.

Gross loss for construction materials was approximately $141,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, compared to a gross loss of approximately $95,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The gross loss margin for this segment was approximately 44% for the six months ended June 30, 2022, as compared to 16% for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The decrease in gross margin was mainly due to (i) higher fixed production costs, such as depreciation, and (ii) increase in raw materials costs as a result of compliance with more rigorous environmental procedures implemented by Chinese government which raised the quality standard of construction materials used in the municipal project construction.

Gross profit for the municipal construction project segment was approximately $66,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2022. There was no municipal construction revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2021.
