Revenues

Revenues from the sales of door locksets was $7,342,860 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $2,148,539, or 41.4% from $5,194,321 for the comparable year-ago period. The increase was due to the increase in the quantity of products sold and the increased sales price for the six month period ending June 30, 2022 as compared to the same period of 2021. The total number of products sold was approximately 1.5 million units (including approximately 0.1 million units of spare parts) for the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to approximately 1.2 million units (including approximately 0.1 million units of spare parts) for the same period of 2021.

Cost of Goods Sold

Cost of goods sold was $6,287,617 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to $4,996,308 for the same period of 2021. Cost of goods sold was 85.6% and 96.2% of revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively. The decrease in cost of goods sold as a percentage of revenue was mainly caused by (i) improved procurement procedures to reduce the costs for raw materials, (ii) improved coordination with our suppliers to recycle raw materials to save material costs, and (iii) the addition of new machinery along with revamped production procedures.

Cost of goods sold includes the cost of raw materials (mainly copper, iron and zinc alloy), direct labor (including wages and social security contributions), manufacturing overhead (such as packing materials, direct rental expense and utilities) and taxes. As a small business with limited resources, we currently lack the ability to hedge our raw materials position and we monitor raw material price trends closely to manage our production needs. 

Gross Profit

Gross profit was $1,055,243 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $857,230, or 432.9% from $198,013 for the period of 2021. Gross margin was 14.4% for the six months ended June 30, 2022, a marked increase from 3.8% for the same period in 2021 as a result of measures taken by the Company to lower the cost of goods sold during the current period. However, the improvement in gross profit during the first half of 2022 was partially offset by the continued negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent control measures in China, and the tariffs imposed on our products that are imported into the US.

We believe that we can further enhance our gross margin as we (i) negotiate for volume rebates that would reduce our cost of raw materials, and (ii) optimize our product mix to focus our marketing efforts on our higher margin products. In order to enhance our gross margin, we raised product unit sales prices since the second half of 2021, and passed on certain increased tariff costs to our customers beginning in January 2022 rather than absorb these costs as we had in the past.

Selling and Marketing Expense

Selling and marketing expenses were $61,809 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, a decrease of $13,168, or 17.6% as compared to $74,977 for the same period of 2021. The decrease during the six months ended June 30, 2022 as compared to the same period of 2021 was due mainly to a reduction in sales commissions. The major components of selling and marketing expenses are transportation, custom tariffs / declarations and sales commissions.

General and Administrative Expenses

General and administrative expenses were $1,495,647 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, a slight decrease of $3,383 or 0.2% as compared to $1,499,030 for the same period in 2021. This decrease was due mainly to a reduction in professional fees and entertainment expenses.

General and administrative expenses consist primarily of personnel costs for our accounting, administrative and other supporting personnel and executives as well as legal and professional fees, depreciation and amortization of non-production property and equipment.

Finance Costs

Finance costs were $117,816 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, an increase of $92,157 from $25,659 for the same period in 2021. The increase was mainly due to the securing of a new short-term loan during the six month period ended June 30, 2022. During the six months ended 2022 and 2021, interest expense related to bank borrowings was $16,190 and $22,580, respectively. During the six months ended 2022 and 2021, interest expense related to the short-term loan was $95,975 and $nil, respectively

Net Loss

Net loss was $233,731 for the six months ended June 30, 2022, a decrease of $1,152,484 from $1,386,215 for the same period in 2021. The decrease in net loss in the current period was mainly due to the increase in revenue and the improvement in gross margin as compared to the same period of 2021.

Loss per Basic and Fully Diluted Share

Loss per basic and fully diluted share for the six months ended June 30, 2022 was $0.02 as compared to loss per basic and fully diluted share of $0.11 for the same period of 2021.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our cost structure is relatively fixed and our working capital requirements are generally impacted by our order backlog. We need substantial operating funds to pay for raw materials, maintain an appropriate level of work-in-process inventory, and to keep our production facility operating. To support our working capital needs, we maintained a credit facility with the Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited for approximately $897,000 as of June 30, 2022 compared to approximately $769,000 for the same period of 2021, which is guaranteed by our executive directors and their personal properties. In June 2021, a shareholder and executive director forgave an advance of $717,948 to the Company, which was treated as a shareholder contribution. As of June 30, 2022 and December 31, 2021, short-term loans constituted a loan of $1,964,072 and $nil advanced from an unrelated party to the Company. The loan is unsecured, bearing 12% interest per annum and repayable by January 4, 2023. Interest of $95,975 was accrued (included in accruals) as of June 30, 2022. The loan was repaid in full in July 2022 without an early repayment penalty.

Our working capital was $1,711,580 as of June 30, 2022 as compared to $2,213,523 as of December 31, 2021. Our cash and cash equivalents were $108,389 as of June 30, 2021 as compared to $131,129 as of December 31, 2021. While our business has been negatively impacted by the increased tariffs on our products that are imported into the US and the continued negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent control measures in China, we believe we have sufficient funds from our recently completed initial public offering as well as Hong Kong government guaranteed low interest rate bank borrowings, if needed, to operate our business as a going concern over the next 12 months. However, we may need additional cash resources in the future for business development or general corporate purposes.

Cash Flows

The following summarized the key components of our cash flows for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021:

Operating Activities

Net cash used in operating activities was $1,869,463 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and was mainly attributable to (i) the net loss of $233,731, (ii) the increase in depreciation of $123,747, (iii) a decrease in inventories of $43,142, (iv) a decrease in other receivables of $13,396, (v) an increase in other payables and accruals of $98,626, and (vi) an increase in cash flow by other elements of $1,090.

These increases in cash flow were offset by (i) an increase in accounts receivable of $1,340,127, (ii) an increase in prepayments and deposits of $42,769, (iii) a decrease in accounts payable of $332,846, and (iv) a decrease in advance from customers of $199,991.

Investing Activities

Net cash used by investing activities was $63,917 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 compared to $998 for the six months ended June 30, 2021. The change was primarily attributable to the purchase of property and equipment.

Financing Activities

Net cash provided by financing activities was $1,911,484 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and was primarily attributable to proceeds from short-term loan of $1,964,072 which was offset by (i) payments of the finance lease liability of $8,391, and (ii) payments of bank borrowings of $44,197.

Capital Expenditures

We had capital expenditures of $63,917 and $998 for the six months ended June 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively. Our capital expenditures were mainly used for purchases of production equipment. We intend to fund our future capital expenditures with lease financing and other alternative financings. We will continue to make capital expenditures as appropriate to support the growth of our business.

Recently Completed Initial Public Offering

On July 15, 2022, the Company closed its initial public offering of 5,060,000 ordinary shares at a price of $4.00 per share. The net proceeds from the offering were approximately $16.86 million, after deducting underwriting discounts and other offering expenses payable by the Company. The ordinary shares of the Company began trading on The Nasdaq Capital Market on July 13, 2022 under the ticker symbol "ILAG."
