Company Overview and Background

USmart was primarily engaged in the business of distribution of memory products mainly under "Samsung" brand name which principally comprised DRAM, Graphic RAM and Flash for the Hong Kong and PRC markets ("Samsung Business"). After April 1, 2012, the Samsung Business was transferred to ATMD, a joint venture with Tomen. We indirectly own 30% equity interest in ATMD. On September 27, 2013, we sold the entire 30% equity interest of ATMD. Through the acquisition of Jussey on September 28, 2012, we have diversified our product portfolio and customer network, obtained design and manufacturing capabilities, and tapped into the blooming telecommunication industry with access to the 3G baseband licenses acquired by Jussey's subsidiaries.

ACL International Holdings Limited

ACL Holdings, a holding company incorporated in Hong Kong, is wholly owned by the Company. ACL Holdings owns 100% equity interest of Atlantic, and 100% equity interest of Jussey.

Atlantic Components Limited



Atlantic, a company incorporated in Hong Kong, is indirectly wholly owned by the Company. Atlantic was established in May 1991 by Mr. Chung-Lun Yang, the Company's Chairman, as a regional distributor of memory products of various manufacturers. In 1993, Samsung Electronics Hong Kong Co., Ltd. ("Samsung") appointed Atlantic as its authorized distributor and marketer of Samsung's memory products in Hong Kong and overseas markets. In 2001, Atlantic established a representative office in Shenzhen, China, and began concentrating its distribution and marketing efforts in Southern China.

The Company's Samsung business was formerly conducted through Atlantic. After April 1, 2012, Atlantic integrated its business relating to procurement of semiconductors and electronic parts directly from Samsung to the joint venture, ATMD, which was finally sold in November 2013. The transition of the business integration has been completed by December 31, 2012. During the transitional period, Atlantic extended its distributor agreement with Samsung to June 30, 2012. After the distributor agreement expired, Atlantic transformed its position from Samsung memory products distributor to a general memory products distributor, and continues its business by providing various brands of memory products to its customers.

Aristo Technologies Limited



On March 23, 2010, the Company concluded that Aristo Technologies Limited ("Aristo"), a related company solely owned by Mr. Yang, is a variable interest entity under FASB ASC 810-10-25 and is therefore subject to consolidation with the Company beginning fiscal year 2007 under the guidance applicable to variable interest entities. Atlantic used to sell Samsung memory chips to Aristo and allows long grace periods for Aristo to repay the open accounts receivable. After the establishment of ATMD, the Company will sell different brands of memory products to Aristo. Being the Company's biggest creditor, the Company does not require Aristo to pledge assets or enter into any agreements to bind Aristo to specific repayment terms. The Company does not experience any bad debt from Aristo. Hence, the Company does not provide any bad debt provision derived from Aristo. Although, the Company is not involved in Aristo's daily operation, it believes that there will not be significant additional risk derived from the trading relationship and transactions with Aristo. Aristo is engaged in the marketing, selling and servicing of computer products and accessories including semiconductors, LCD products, mass storage devices, consumer electronics, computer peripherals and electronic components for different generations of computer related products. In addition to Samsung-branded products, Aristo carries various brands of products, such as Hynix, Micron, Qimonda, Lexar, Dane-Elec, Elixir, SanDisk and Winbond. Aristo also provides value-added services to its products and resells it to its customers. Aristo's 2012 and 2011 sales were around $2 million and $14 million; it was a distributor that accommodated special requirements for specific customers.

Jussey Investments Limited



Jussey, a holding company incorporated in British Virgin Islands, which is wholly owned by the Company, owns 100% equity interest in eVision Telecom Limited ("eVision"), a Hong Kong incorporated company, and 80% equity interest in USmart Electronic Products Limited, a Hong Kong incorporated company, which owns 100% equity interest of Dongguan Kezheng Electronics Limited, a wholly foreign-owned enterprise ("WFOE") organized under the laws of the PRC (USmart Electronic Products Limited and Dongguan Kezheng Electronics Limited are together referring as "UEP" hereafter).

Unaudited Comparisons for Three Months Ended March 31, 2014 to the Three Months Ended March 31, 2013

Net sales



Net sales consist of product sales, net of returns and allowances and any recoveries from sales of previously written down inventories. Net sales are recognized upon the transfer of legal title of the products to the customers. The quantity of products the Company sells fluctuates with changes in demand from its customers. As the Company decided to sell the operating subsidiaries resulted for the major factors contributed to the significant reduction in the Company's net sales, down 96.1% to $561,870 for the first quarter of 2014 from $14,460,228 for the first quarter of 2013.

Cost of sales



Cost of sales is comprised of costs of goods purchased from our supplier, costs of manufacturing, assembly and testing of our products, and associated costs related to manufacturing support and quality assurance personnel, as well as provision for excess and obsolete inventories. The Company's cost of sales, as a percentage of net sales, amounted to approximately 104.5% for the first quarter of 2014 and approximately 100.7% for the first quarter of 2013. Cost of sales decreased by $14.0 million or 96.0%, to $587,308 for the first quarter of 2014 from $14,558,743 for the first quarter of 2013. This decrease was mainly due to a decrease in sales volume.

Gross Profit



Gross profit is net sales less cost of sales and is affected by a number of factors, including competitive pricing, product mix, foundry pricing, cost of test and assembly services, manufacturing yields and provision for excess and obsolete inventories. The Company's gross profit for the first quarter of 2014 was recorded as a gross loss of $25,438, representing a reduction of $73,077 or 74,2% over a gross loss of $98,515 in the same period of 2013. This result is a consequence of the reduction in sales volume as well as the company's decision to disposal of the operating subsidiaries in the next quarter.

29 PART I - FINANCIAL INFORMATION USMART MOBILE DEVICE INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES Sales and Marketing Expenses



Sales and marketing expenses consists primarily of associated costs for sales and marketing, commissions, promotional activities, freight shipments, and marine insurance. Sales and marketing expenses increased by $54,714 or 167.5%, to $87,375 for the first quarter of 2014 from $32,661 for the first quarter of 2013. Such decrease was directly attributable to the increase in salaries and compensation paid to the lay-off of employees in the first quarter of 2014.

General and Administrative Expenses

General and administrative expenses consists primarily of compensation (including stock-based compensation) and associated costs for administrative personnel, professional fees including audit and other business registration fee, and director and officer insurance. General and administrative expenses decreased by $875,408 or 80.5%, to $211,448 for the first quarter of 2014 from $1,086,856 for the first quarter of 2013. The decrease was directly attributable to the decision for disposal of operating subsidiaries in the coming quarter.

Income (Loss) from Operations



Loss from operations was $324,261 for the first quarter of 2014 compared to loss of $1,218,032 for the first quarter of 2013. This decrease in loss from operations was mainly due to the decision for disposal of operating subsidiaries in the coming quarter.

Other Expenses (Income)



Other expenses (income) consists primarily of rental income, management and service income, interest income, interest expenses, and profit on disposals of assets. The Company has recorded other income of $33,237 for the first quarter of 2014, a decrease of $2,073,127 from other income of $2,106,364 for the first quarter of 2013. This decrease in other income was mainly due to a net income from disposing of fixed assets of $1,872,724 in the first quarter of 2013.

Interest Expense



Interest expense, including finance charges, relates primarily to our bank borrowings. Interest expense decreased $221,469 or 100%, to $Nil for the first quarter of 2014 from $221,469 for the first quarter of 2013. This change was mainly due to the decision for disposal of operating subsidiaries in the coming quarter.

Net Income (Loss)



As a result of the foregoing, the Company recorded a net loss $291,024 for the first quarter of 2014, decrease of $1,179,356 or 132.8%, from a net income $888,332 for the first quarter of 2013. The result was due the abnormal profit of $1,872,724 from disposals of a fixed asset in the first quarter 2013 and also due to the decision for disposal of operating subsidiaries in the coming quarter.

Critical Accounting Policies



The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") recently issued Financial Reporting Release No. 60, "Cautionary Advice Regarding Disclosure About Critical Accounting Policies" ("FRR 60"), suggesting companies provide additional disclosure and commentary on their most critical accounting policies. In FRR 60, the SEC defined the most critical accounting policies as the ones that are most important to the portrayal of a company's financial condition and operating results, and require management to make its most difficult and subjective judgments, often as a result of the need to make estimates of matters that are inherently uncertain. Based on this definition, our most critical accounting policies include: inventory valuation, which affects cost of sales and gross margin; policies for revenue recognition, allowance for doubtful accounts, and stock-based compensation. The methods, estimates and judgments we use in applying these most critical accounting policies have a significant impact on the results we report in our consolidated financial statements.

30 PART I - FINANCIAL INFORMATION USMART MOBILE DEVICE INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES Revenue Recognition



The Company derives revenues from resale of computer memory products. The Company recognizes revenue in accordance with the ASC 605 "Revenue Recognition". Under ASC 605, revenue is recognized when there is persuasive evidence of an arrangement, delivery has occurred or services are rendered, the sales price is determinable, and collectability is reasonably assured. Revenue typically is recognized at time of shipment. Sales are recorded net of discounts, rebates, and returns, which historically were not material.

Impairment of Long-Lived Assets

We account for impairment of property, plant and equipment in accordance with FASB ASC 360. The carrying value of a long-lived asset is considered impaired when the anticipated undiscounted cash flow from such asset is separately identifiable and is less than its carrying value. In that event, a loss is recognized based on the amount by which the carrying value exceeds the fair market value of the long-lived asset. Fair market value is determined primarily using the anticipated cash flows discounted at a rate commensurate with the risk involved. Losses on long-lived assets to be disposed of are determined in a similar manner, except that fair market values are reduced for the cost to dispose. During the reporting years, there was no impairment loss incurred. Competitive pricing pressure and changes in interest rates, could materially and adversely affect our estimates of future net cash flows to be generated by our long-lived assets.

Inventory Valuation



Our policy is to value inventories at the lower of cost or market on a part-by-part basis. In addition, we write down unproven, excess and obsolete inventories to net realizable value. This policy requires us to make a number of estimates and assumptions including market and economic conditions, product lifecycles and forecast demand for our product to value our inventory. To the extent actual results differ from these estimates and assumptions, the balances of reported inventory and cost of products sold will change accordingly. Since Aristo supplies different generations of computer related products, older generation products will sell more slowly owing to lower market demand. According to the management experience and estimation of the actual market situation, old generation products carrying on hand for ten years will have no re-sell value. Therefore, these inventories on hand over ten years will be written off by Aristo immediately.

Allowance for Doubtful Accounts.

We maintain an allowance for doubtful accounts for estimated losses resulting from the inability of our customers to make required payments. Our allowance for doubtful accounts is based on our assessment of the collectability of specific customer accounts, the aging of accounts receivable, our history of bad debts, and the general condition of the industry. If a major customer's credit worthiness deteriorates, or our customers' actual defaults exceed our historical experience, our estimates could change and impact our reported results.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our principal sources of liquidity are cash from operations, bank lines of credit and credit terms from suppliers. Our principal uses of cash have been for operations and working capital. We anticipate these uses will continue to be our principal uses of cash in the future.

Our ability to draw down under our various credit and loan facilities is, in each case, subject to the prior consent of the relevant lending institution to make advances at the time of the requested advance and each facility (other than with respect to certain long term mortgage loans) is payable within 90 days of drawdown. Accordingly, on a case by case basis, we may elect to terminate or not renew several of our credit facilities if significant reduction in our available short term borrowings that we do not deem it is commercially reasonable. The Company is seeking to raise $30 million funding in order to pursue certain business expansion. We currently have no commitment for this.

As of March 31, 2014, the Company has total net current liabilities of $12,800,280. This raises substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. We will continue to seek additional sources of available financing on acceptable terms; however, there can be no assurance that we will be able to obtain the necessary additional capital on a timely basis or on acceptable terms, if at all. In addition, if the results are negatively impacted and delayed as a result of political and economic factors beyond management's control, our capital requirements may increase.

31 PART I - FINANCIAL INFORMATION USMART MOBILE DEVICE INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES



The short-term borrowings from banks to finance the cash flow required to finance the purchase of products from our suppliers must be made a day in advance of the release of goods from suppliers' warehouse before receiving payments from customers upon physical delivery of such goods in Hong Kong which, in most instances, take approximately two days from the date of such delivery.

The following factors, among others, could have negative impacts on our results of operations and financial position: the termination or change in terms of the banking facilities; pricing pressures in the industry; a continued downturn in the economy in general or in the memory products sector; an unexpected decrease in demand for certain memory products; our ability to attract new customers; an increase in competition in the related markets; and the ability of some of our customers to obtain financing.

Although we believe the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, levels of activity, performance or achievements. We are under no duty to update any of the forward-looking statements after the date of this report to conform them to actual results or to make changes in our expectations. The establishment of ATMD will not affect our liquidity and capital resources, as pursuant to the joint venture agreement, Tomen will be responsible for the financing of ATMD's operations.

Net Cash Provided by (Used for) Operating Activities

In the three months ended March 31, 2014, net cash provided by operating activities was $1,617,381 while for the three months ended March 31, 2013, net cash used for operating activities was $691,265, an increase in net cash provided by operating activities of approximately $2.3 million. This increase was primarily due to changes in current assets held for disposal resulted by the decision for disposal of operating subsidiaries as of March 31, 2014.

Net Cash Provided by (Used for) Investing Activities

For the three months ended March 31, 2014, net cash provided by investing activities was $11,736,903 while for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $2,310,093, an increase of the amount of $9,426,810. This increase was primarily due to changes in fixed assets assigned to current assets hold for disposal resulted by the decision for disposal of operating subsidiaries as of March 31, 2014.

Net Cash Provided by (Used for) Financing Activities

In the three months ended March 31, 2014, net cash used for financing activities was $13,585,403 while for the three months ended March 31, 2013 was $2,326,175, a decrease of the amount of $11,259,228. This decrease was due to the decision for disposal of operating subsidiaries which resulted in the repayment of bank lines of credit and loans payable usage of March 31, 2014.

New Accounting Pronouncements



In January 2013, FASB has issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2013-01, Balance Sheet (Topic 210): Clarifying the Scope of Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities. This ASU clarifies that ordinary trade receivables and receivables are not in the scope of ASU No. 2011-11, Balance Sheet (Topic 210): Disclosures about Offsetting Assets and Liabilities. Specifically, ASU 2011-11 applies only to derivatives, repurchase agreements and reverse purchase agreements, and securities borrowing and securities lending transactions that are either offset in accordance with specific criteria contained in the FASB Accounting Standards Codification™ (Codification) or subject to a master netting arrangement or similar agreement. The FASB undertook this clarification project in response to concerns expressed by U.S. stakeholders about the standard's broad definition of financial instruments. After the standard was finalized, companies realized that many contracts have standard commercial provisions that would equate to a master netting arrangement, significantly increasing the cost of compliance at minimal value to financial statement users. An entity is required to apply the amendments in ASU 2013-01 for fiscal years beginning on or after January 1, 2013, and interim periods within those annual periods. An entity should provide the required disclosures retrospectively for all comparative periods presented. The effective date is the same as the effective date of ASU 2011-11.

In February 2013, FASB has issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2013-02, Comprehensive Income (Topic 220): Reporting of Amounts Reclassified Out of Accumulated Other Comprehensive Income. This ASU improves the transparency of reporting these reclassifications. Other comprehensive income includes gains and losses that are initially excluded from net income for an accounting period. Those gains and losses are later reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income into net income. The amendments in this ASU do not change the current requirements for reporting net income or other comprehensive income in financial statements. All of the information that this ASU requires already is required to be disclosed elsewhere in the financial statements under U.S. GAAP.

32



The FASB has issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-07, Applying Variable Interest Entities Guidance to Common Control Leasing Arrangements. The guidance addresses the consolidation of lessors in certain common control leasing arrangements and is based on a consensus reached by the Private Company Council (PCC). Under current U.S. GAAP, a company is required to consolidate an entity in which it has a controlling financial interest. The assessment of controlling financial interest is performed under either: (a) a voting interest model; or (b) a variable interest entity model. In a variable interest entity model, the company has a controlling financial interest when it has: (a) the power to direct the activities that most significantly affect the economic performance of the entity; and (b) the obligation to absorb losses or the right to receive benefits of the entity that could be potentially significant to the entity. To determine which model applies, a company preparing financial statements must first determine whether it has a variable interest in the entity being evaluated for consolidation and whether that entity is a variable interest entity.

The new guidance allows a private company to elect (when certain conditions exist) not to apply the variable interest entity guidance to a lessor under common control. Instead, the private company would make certain disclosures about the lessor and the leasing arrangement. Under the amendments in this ASU, a private company lessee could elect an alternative not to apply variable interest entity guidance to a lessor when:

-The private company lessee and the lessor are under common control;

-The private company lessee has a leasing arrangement with the lessor;

-Substantially all of the activity between the private company lessee and the lessor is related to the leasing activities (including supporting leasing activities) between those two companies, and

-If the private company lessee explicitly guarantees or provides collateral for any obligation of the lessor related to the asset leased by the private company, then the principal amount of the obligation at inception does not exceed the value of the asset leased by the private company from the lessor. If elected, the accounting alternative should be applied to all leasing arrangements meeting the above conditions. The alternative should be applied retrospectively to all periods presented, and is effective for annual periods beginning after December 15, 2014, and interim periods within annual periods beginning after December 15, 2015. Early application is permitted for all financial statements that have not yet been made available for issuance.

The FASB has issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2014-08, Presentation of Financial Statements (Topic 205) and Property, Plant, and Equipment (Topic 360): Reporting Discontinued Operations and Disclosures of Disposals of Components of an Entity. The amendments in the ASU change the criteria for reporting discontinued operations while enhancing disclosures in this area. It also addresses sources of confusion and inconsistent application related to financial reporting of discontinued operations guidance in U.S. GAAP.

Under the new guidance, only disposals representing a strategic shift in operations should be presented as discontinued operations. Those strategic shifts should have a major effect on the organization's operations and financial results. Examples include a disposal of a major geographic area, a major line of business, or a major equity method investment. In addition, the new guidance requires expanded disclosures about discontinued operations that will provide financial statement users with more information about the assets, liabilities, income, and expenses of discontinued operations.

The new guidance also requires disclosure of the pre-tax income attributable to a disposal of a significant part of an organization that does not qualify for discontinued operations reporting. This disclosure will provide users with information about the ongoing trends in a reporting organization's results from continuing operations. The amendments in this ASU enhance convergence between U.S. GAAP and International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS). Part of the new definition of discontinued operation is based on elements of the definition of discontinued operations in IFRS 5, Non-Current Assets Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations. The amendments in the ASU are effective in the first quarter of 2015 for public organizations with calendar year ends. For most nonpublic organizations, it is effective for annual financial statements with fiscal years beginning on or after December 15, 2014. Early adoption is permitted.

33 PART I - FINANCIAL INFORMATION USMART MOBILE DEVICE INC. AND SUBSIDIARIES



The new amendments will require an organization to:

Present (either on the face of the statement where net income is presented or in the notes) the effects on the line items of net income of significant amounts reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income - but only if the item reclassified is required under U.S. GAAP to be reclassified to net income in its entirety in the same reporting period.

Cross-reference to other disclosures currently required under U.S. GAAP for other reclassification items (that are not required under U.S. GAAP) to be reclassified directly to net income in their entirety in the same reporting period. This would be the case when a portion of the amount reclassified out of accumulated other comprehensive income is initially transferred to a balance sheet account (e.g., inventory for pension-related amounts) instead of directly to income or expense.

The amendments apply to all public and private companies that report items of other comprehensive income. Public companies are required to comply with these amendments for all reporting periods (interim and annual). A private company is required to meet the reporting requirements of the amended paragraphs about the roll forward of accumulated other comprehensive income for both interim and annual reporting periods. However, private companies are only required to provide the information about the effect of reclassifications on line items of net income for annual reporting periods, not for interim reporting periods. The amendments are effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2012, for public companies and are effective for reporting periods beginning after December 15, 2013, for private companies. Early adoption is permitted.

In February 2013, FASB issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2013-03, Financial Instruments (Topic 825). This ASU clarifies the scope and applicability of a disclosure exemption that resulted from the issuance of Accounting Standards Update 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 amendment clarifies that the requirement to disclose "the level of the fair value hierarchy within which the fair value measurements are categorized in their entirety (Level 1, 2, or 3)" does not apply to nonpublic entities for items that are not measured at fair value in the statement of financial position, but for which fair value is disclosed. This ASU is the final version of Proposed Accounting Standards Update 2013-200-Financial Instruments (Topic 825) which has been deleted. The amendments are effective upon issuance.

In February 2013, FASB has issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2013-04, Liabilities (Topic 405): Obligations Resulting from Joint and Several Liability Arrangements for Which the Total Amount of the Obligation Is Fixed at the Reporting Date. This ASU provides guidance for the recognition, measurement, and disclosure of obligations resulting from joint and several liability arrangements for which the total amount of the obligation within the scope of this ASU is fixed at the reporting date, except for obligations addressed within existing guidance in U.S. GAAP. The guidance requires an entity to measure those obligations as the sum of the amount the reporting entity agreed to pay on the basis of its arrangement among its co-obligors and any additional amount the reporting entity expects to pay on behalf of its co-obligors. The guidance in this ASU also requires an entity to disclose the nature and amount of the obligation as well as other information about those obligations. The amendments in this ASU are effective for fiscal years, and interim periods within those years, beginning after December 15, 2013. For nonpublic entities, the amendments are effective for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2014, and interim periods and annual periods thereafter. The amendments in this ASU should be applied retrospectively to all prior periods presented for those obligations resulting from joint and several liability arrangements within the ASU's scope that exist at the beginning of an entity's fiscal year of adoption. An entity may elect to use hindsight for the comparative periods (if it changed its accounting as a result of adopting the amendments in this ASU) and should disclose that fact. Early adoption is permitted.

In March 2013, FASB has issued Accounting Standards Update (ASU) No. 2013-05, Foreign Currency Matters (Topic 830). This ASU resolve the diversity in practice about whether Subtopic 810-10, Consolidation-Overall, or Subtopic 830-30, Foreign Currency Matters-Translation of Financial Statements, applies to the release of the cumulative translation adjustment into net income when a parent either sells a part or all of its investment in a foreign entity or no longer holds a controlling financial interest in a subsidiary or group of assets that is a nonprofit activity or a business (other than a sale of in substance real estate or conveyance of oil and gas mineral rights)within a foreign entity. In addition, the amendments in this Update resolve the diversity in practice for the treatment of business combinations achieved in stages (sometimes also referred to as step acquisitions) involving a foreign entity. This ASU is the final version of Proposed Accounting Standards Update EITF11Ar-Foreign Currency Matters (Topic 830), which has been deleted. The amendments in this Update are effective prospectively for fiscal years (and interim reporting periods within those years) beginning after December 15, 2013. For nonpublic entities the amendments in this Update are effective prospectively for the first annual period beginning after December 15, 2014, and interim and annual periods thereafter. The amendments should be applied prospectively to derecognition events occurring after the effective date. Prior periods should not be adjusted. Early adoption is permitted. If an entity elects to early adopt the amendments, it should apply them as of the beginning of the entity's fiscal year of adoption.
