NOTE 1.                   INTERIM FINANCIAL STATEMENT
 
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements of Network CN Inc., its subsidiaries and variable interest entities (collectively “NCN” or the “Company”) have been prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States (“GAAP”) and the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) for interim financial information. Accordingly, they do not include all the information and footnotes necessary for a comprehensive presentation of our financial position and results of operations.
 
The condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008 were not audited. It is management’s opinion, however, that all material adjustments (consisting of normal recurring adjustments) have been made which are necessary for a fair financial statements presentation. The results for the interim period are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year. The year-end condensed consolidated balance sheet data was derived from audited financial statements, but does not include all disclosures required by accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.
 
The accompanying unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements should be read in conjunction with the audited consolidated financial statements and notes thereto included in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2008, previously filed with the SEC on March 27, 2009.

(B) Recent Accounting Pronouncements

FASB Establishes Accounting Standards Codification

In June 2009, the Financial Accounting Standard Board (“FASB”) issued Accounting Standards Update (“ASU”) No. 2009-01 “Generally Accepted Accounting Principles” (ASC Topic 105) which establishes the FASB Accounting Standards Codification (“the Codification” or “ASC”) as the official single source of authoritative GAAP. All existing accounting standards are superseded. All other accounting guidance not included in the Codification will be considered non-authoritative. The Codification also includes all relevant SEC guidance organized using the same topical structure in separate sections within the Codification.

Following the Codification, the Board will not issue new standards in the form of Statements, FASB Staff Positions or Emerging Issues Task Force (“EITF”) Abstracts. Instead, it will issue ASU which will serve to update the Codification, provide background information about the guidance and provide the basis for conclusions on the changes to the Codification.

The Codification is not intended to change GAAP, but it will change the way GAAP is organized and presented. The Codification is effective for our third-quarter 2009 financial statements and the principal impact on our financial statements is limited to disclosures as all future references to authoritative accounting literature will be referenced in accordance with the Codification. In order to ease the transition to the Codification, we are providing the Codification cross-reference alongside the references to the standards issued and adopted prior to the adoption of the Codification.

Other Accounting Changes

In September 2006, the FASB issued Statement of Financial Accounting Standards (“SFAS”) No. 157 (ASC Topic 820). Effective January 1, 2008, the Company adopted the measurement and disclosure other than those requirements related to nonfinancial assets and liabilities in accordance with guidance from FASB Staff Position 157-2 “Effective Date of FASB Statement No. 157” (ASC Topic 820-10), which delayed the effective date of SFAS No. 157 (ASC Topic 820) for all nonfinancial assets and nonfinancial liabilities, except for items that are recognized or disclosed at fair value in the financial statements on a recurring basis (at least annually), until the beginning of fiscal year 2009. In April 2009, the FASB issued Staff Position No. FAS 157-4 “Determining Fair Value When the Volume and Level of Activity for the Asset or Liability Have Significantly Decreased and Identifying Transactions That Are Not Orderly” (“FSP FAS No. 157-4”) (ASC Topic 820-10-65).  FSP FAS No. 157-4 (ASC Topic 820-10-65) clarifies the methodology used to determine fair value when there is no active market or where the price inputs being used represent distressed sales. FSP FAS No. 157-4 (ASC Topic 820-10-65) also reaffirms the objective of fair value measurement, as stated in SFAS No. 157 (ASC Topic 820), which is to reflect how much an asset would be sold for in an orderly transaction. It also reaffirms the need to use judgment to determine if a formerly active market has become inactive, as well as to determine fair values when markets have become inactive. FSP FAS No. 157-4 (ASC Topic 820-10-65) is applied prospectively and is effective for interim and annual reporting periods ending after June 15, 2009. The adoption of SFAS No. 157 (ASC Topic 820) did not have a material impact on our financial statements.

In December 2008, the FASB issued Staff Position No. FAS 132(R)-1 “Employers’ Disclosures about Postretirement Benefit Plan Assets” (“FSP FAS 132(R)-1”) (ASC Topic 715-20-65). This requires more detailed disclosures about employers’ plan assets in a defined benefit pension or other postretirement plan, including employers’ investment strategies, major categories of plan assets, concentrations of risk within plan assets, and inputs and valuation techniques used to measure the fair value of plan assets. FSP FAS 132(R)-1 (ASC Topic 715-20-65) also requires, for fair value measurements using significant unobservable inputs (Level 3), disclosure of the effect of the measurements on changes in plan assets for the period. The disclosures about plan assets required by FSP FAS 132(R)-1 (ASC Topic 715-20-65) must be provided for fiscal years ending after December 15, 2009. As this pronouncement is only disclosure-related, it will not have an impact on our financial position and results of operations.

In June 2009, the FASB issued SFAS No. 166 “Accounting for Transfers of Financial Assets—an amendment of FASB Statement No. 140” (“SFAS 166”) (not part of the Codification yet). SFAS 166 (not part of the Codification yet) removes the concept of a qualifying special-purpose entity and removes the exception from applying FIN 46R (ASC Topic 810) to variable interest entities that are qualifying special-purpose entities; limits the circumstances in which a transferor derecognizes a portion or component of a financial asset; defines a participating interest; requires a transferor to recognize and initially measure at fair value all assets obtained and liabilities incurred as a result of a transfer accounted for as a sale; and requires enhanced disclosure; among others. SFAS 166 (not part of the Codification yet) will be effective as of the beginning of each reporting entity’s first annual reporting period that begins after November 15, 2009, for interim periods within that first annual reporting period and for interim and annual reporting periods thereafter. Management is currently evaluating the potential impact of SFAS 166 (not part of the Codification yet) on our financial statements.

In June 2009, the FASB issued SFAS No. 167 “Amendments to FASB Interpretation No. 46(R)” (“SFAS 167”) (not part of the Codification yet). This updated guidance requires an enterprise to perform an analysis to determine whether the enterprise’s variable interest or interests give it a controlling financial interest in a variable interest entity; to require ongoing reassessments of whether an enterprise is the primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity; to eliminate the quantitative approach previously required for determining the primary beneficiary of a variable interest entity; to add an additional reconsideration event for determining whether an entity is a variable interest entity when any changes in facts and circumstances occur such that holders of the equity investment at risk, as a group, lose the power from voting rights or similar rights of those investments to direct the activities of the entity that most significantly impact the entity’s economic performance; and to require enhanced disclosures that will provide users of financial statements with more transparent information about an enterprise’s involvement in a variable interest entity. SFAS 167 (not part of the Codification yet) will be effective as of the beginning of each reporting entity’s first annual reporting period that begins after November 15, 2009, for interim periods within that first annual reporting period, and for interim and annual reporting periods thereafter. Management is currently evaluating the potential impact of SFAS 167 (not part of the Codification yet) on our financial statements.
 
In August 2009, the FASB issued ASU No. 2009-05 Measuring Liabilities at Fair Value” (amendments to  ASC Topic 820, Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures)” (“ASU 2009-05”)which amends Fair Value Measurements and Disclosures – Overall (ASC Topic 820-10) to provide guidance on the fair value measurement of liabilities. This update requires clarification for circumstances in which a quoted price in an active market for the identical liability is not available, a reporting entity is required to measure fair value using one or more of the following techniques: 1) a valuation technique that uses either the quoted price of the identical liability when traded as an asset or quoted prices for similar liabilities or similar liabilities when traded as an asset; or 2) another valuation technique that is consistent with the principles in ASC Topic 820 such as the income and market approach to valuation. The amendments in this update also clarify that when estimating the fair value of a liability, a reporting entity is not required to include a separate input or adjustment to other inputs relating to the existence of a restriction that prevents the transfer of the liability. This update further clarifies that if the fair value of a liability is determined by reference to a quoted price in an active market for an identical liability, that price would be considered a Level 1 measurement in the fair value hierarchy. Similarly, if the identical liability has a quoted price when traded as an asset in an active market, it is also a Level 1 fair value measurement if no adjustments to the quoted price of the asset are required. This update is effective for our fourth quarter 2009. Management is currently evaluating the potential impact of ASU No. 2009-05 on our financial statements.

In October 2009, the FASB issued ASU 2009-13, “Multiple-Deliverable Revenue Arrangements, (amendments to ASC Topic 605, Revenue Recognition)” (“ASU 2009-13”). ASU 2009-13 requires entities to allocate revenue in an arrangement using estimated selling prices of the delivered goods and services based on a selling price hierarchy. The amendments eliminate the residual method of revenue allocation and require revenue to be allocated using the relative selling price method. ASU 2009-13 should be applied on a prospective basis for revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified in fiscal years beginning on or after June 15, 2010, with early adoption permitted. Management is currently evaluating the potential impact of ASU2009-13 on our financial statements.

In October 2009, the FASB issued ASU 2009-14, “Certain Arrangements That Include Software Elements, (amendments to ASC Topic 985, Software)” (“ASU 2009-14”). ASU 2009-14 removes tangible products from the scope of software revenue guidance and provides guidance on determining whether software deliverables in an arrangement that includes a tangible product are covered by the scope of the software revenue guidance. ASU 2009-14 should be applied on a prospective basis for revenue arrangements entered into or materially modified in fiscal years beginning on or after June 15, 2010, with early adoption permitted. Management is currently evaluating the potential impact of ASU2009-14 on our financial statements.

In October, 2009, the FASB issued ASU 2009-15, “Accounting for Own-Share Lending Arrangements in Contemplation of Convertible Debt Issuance or Other Financing”( amendment s to ASC Topic 470, Debt)” (“ASU2009-15”), and provides guidance for accounting and reporting for own-share lending arrangements issued in contemplation of a convertible debt issuance.  At the date of issuance, a share-lending arrangement entered into on an entity’s own shares should be measured at fair value in accordance with Topic 820 and recognized as an issuance cost, with an offset to additional paid-in capital.  Loaned shares are excluded from basic and diluted earnings per share unless default of the share-lending arrangement occurs.  The amendments also require several disclosures including a description and the terms of the arrangement and the reason for entering into the arrangement.  The effective dates of the amendments are dependent upon the date the share-lending arrangement was entered into and include retrospective application for arrangements outstanding as of the beginning of fiscal years beginning on or after December 15, 2009.   Management is currently evaluating the potential impact of ASU2009-15 on our financial statements.
 
(C) Principles of Consolidation
 
The condensed consolidated financial statements include the financial statements of Network CN Inc., its subsidiaries and variable interest entities. Variable interest entities are those entities in which the Company, through contractual arrangements, bears the risks of, and enjoys the rewards normally associated with ownership of the entities, and therefore the Company is the primary beneficiary of these entities. In accordance with FASB Interpretation No. 46R “Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities—an interpretation of ARB No. 5 (“FIN 46R”) (ASC Topic 810), the primary beneficiary is required to consolidate the variable interest entities for financial reporting purposes. All significant intercompany transactions and balances have been eliminated upon consolidation.
 
(D) Use of Estimates
 
In preparing condensed consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, management is required to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities as of the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reported period. Actual results could differ from those estimates. Differences from those estimates are reported in the period they become known and are disclosed to the extent they are material to the condensed consolidated financial statements taken as a whole.
 
(E) Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash includes cash on hand, cash accounts, and interest bearing savings accounts placed with banks and financial institutions. For the purposes of the cash flow statements, the Company considers all highly liquid investments with original maturities of three months or less at the time of purchase to be cash equivalents. As of September 30, 2009 and 2008, the Company had no cash equivalents.
 
(F) Allowance for Doubtful Debts

Allowance for doubtful debts is made against receivable to the extent they are considered to be doubtful. Receivables in the condensed consolidated balance sheet are stated net of such allowance. The Company records its allowance for doubtful debts based upon its assessment of various factors. The Company considers historical experience, the age of the receivable balances, the credit quality of its customers, current economic conditions, and other factors that may affect customers’ ability to pay to determine the level of allowance required.
 
(G) Prepayments for Advertising Operating Rights, Net
 
Prepayments for advertising operating rights are measured at cost less accumulated amortization and impairment losses. Cost includes prepaid expenses directly attributable to the acquisition of advertising operating rights. Such prepaid expenses are in general charged to the condensed consolidated statements of operations on a straight-line basis over the operating period. All the costs expected to be amortized after 12 months of the balance sheet date are classified as non-current assets.
 
 
NETWORK CN INC.
NOTES TO CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED
FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(UNAUDITED)
 
 
An impairment loss is recognized when the carrying amount of the prepayments for advertising operating rights exceeds the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated from the advertising operating right’s use and eventual disposition. An impairment loss is measured as the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the asset calculated using a discounted cash flow analysis.
 
(H) Equipment, Net
 
Equipment is stated at cost less accumulated depreciation and impairment losses. Depreciation is provided using the straight-line method over the estimated useful life as follows:
 
Media display equipment
 
5 - 7 years
Office equipment
 
3 - 5 years
Furniture and fixtures
 
3 - 5 years
Leasehold improvements
 
Over the unexpired lease terms

Construction in progress is carried at cost less impairment losses, if any. It relates to construction of media display equipment. No provision for depreciation is made on construction in progress until the relevant assets are completed and put into use.
 
When equipment is retired or otherwise disposed of, the related cost, accumulated depreciation and provision for impairment loss are removed from the respective accounts, and any gain or loss is reflected in the condensed consolidated statements of operations. Repairs and maintenance costs on equipment are expensed as incurred.

(I) Intangible Assets, Net
 
Intangible assets are stated at cost less accumulated amortization and impairment losses. Intangible assets that have indefinite useful lives are not amortized. Other intangible assets with finite useful lives are amortized on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives of 16 months to 20 years. The amortization methods and estimated useful lives of intangible assets are reviewed regularly.
 
(J) Impairment of Long-Lived Assets
 
Long-lived assets, including intangible assets with definite lives, are reviewed for impairment whenever events or changes in circumstance indicate that the carrying amount of the assets may not be recoverable. An intangible asset that is not subject to amortization is reviewed for impairment annually or more frequently whenever events or changes in circumstances indicate that the carrying amount of the asset may not be recoverable. An impairment loss is recognized when the carrying amount of a long-lived asset and intangible asset exceeds the sum of the undiscounted cash flows expected to be generated from the asset’s use and eventual disposition. An impairment loss is measured as the amount by which the carrying amount exceeds the fair value of the asset calculated using a discounted cash flow analysis.
 
(K) Deferred Charges, Net
 
Deferred charges are fees and expenses directly related to the issuance of convertible promissory notes, including placement agents’ fees. Deferred charges are capitalized and amortized over the life of the convertible promissory notes using the effective yield method. Amortization of deferred charges is included in amortization of deferred charges and debt discount on the condensed consolidated statements of operations while the unamortized balance is included in deferred charges in the condensed consolidated balance sheets.
 
(L) Convertible Promissory Notes and Warrants

1)
Issuance of 12% Convertible Promissory Note and Warrants and 3% Convertible Promissory Notes and Warrants
 
During 2007 and 2008, the Company issued a 12% convertible promissory note in the principal amount of $5,000,000 and warrants and 3% convertible promissory notes in the principal amount of $50,000,000 and warrants. The warrants and embedded conversion feature were classified as equity under EITF Issue No. 00-19 “Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to, and Potentially Settled in, a Company’s Own Stock” (ASC Topic 815-40) and met the other criteria in paragraph 11(a) of SFAS No. 133 “Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities” (ASC Topic 815-10-15-74). The Company allocated the proceeds of the convertible promissory notes between convertible promissory notes and the financial instruments related to warrants associated with convertible promissory notes based on their relative fair values at the commitment date. The fair value of the financial instruments related to warrants associated with convertible promissory notes was determined utilizing the Black-Scholes option pricing model and the respective allocated proceeds to the warrants is recorded in additional paid-in capital. The embedded beneficial conversion feature associated with convertible promissory notes was recognized and measured by allocating a portion of the proceeds equal to the intrinsic value of that feature to additional paid-in capital in accordance with EITF Issue No. 98-5 “Accounting for Convertible Securities with Beneficial Conversion Features or Contingently Adjustable Conversion Ratio” (ASC Topic 470-20) and EITF Issue No. 00-27 “Application of Issue No. 98-5 to Certain Convertible Instruments” (ASC Topic 470-20).

The portion of debt discount resulting from the allocation of proceeds to the financial instruments related to warrants associated with convertible promissory notes is being amortized over the life of the convertible promissory notes, using the effective yield method. For the portion of debt discount resulting from the allocation of proceeds to the beneficial conversion feature, it is amortized over the term of the notes from the respective dates of issuance using the effective yield method.

2)           Debt Restructuring and Issuance of 1% Convertible Promissory Note

On April 2, 2009, the Company entered into a new financing arrangement with the holders of the 3% convertible promissory notes and warrants and a new investor. The Company provided an inducement conversion offer to a new investor who exchanged 3% convertible promissory notes in the principal amount of $45,000,000, and all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, for 307,035,463 shares of the Company’s common stock (the original conversion price is $1.65 per share convertible into 28,282,227 shares). Pursuant to paragraph 21 of EITF Issue No. 00-27 “Application of Issue No. 98-5 to Certain Convertible Instruments” (ASC Topic 470-20), all the unamortized debt discount (including the discount from an allocation of proceeds to the warrants and the discount originated by the beneficial conversion feature) of the relevant 3% convertible promissory notes remaining at the date of conversion were immediately recognized as expenses and is included in amortization of deferred charges and debt discount in the condensed consolidated statement of operations. The Company also accounted for the inducement conversion offer according to SFAS No. 84 “Induced Conversions of Convertible Debt” (ASC Topic 470-20). To induce conversion, the Company has reduced the conversion price and also granted an option to purchase an aggregate of 122,814,185 shares of the Company’s common stock, for an aggregate purchase price of $2,000,000, exercisable for a three-month period. The Company recognized non-cash debt conversion charges equal to the fair value of the incremental consideration (including both reduction in the conversion price and grant of purchase option) given as of the date the inducement offer is accepted by a new investor. The fair value of the purchase option was determined utilizing Black-Scholes option pricing model.

For the remaining 3% convertible promissory notes in the principal amount of $5,000,000, the Company and the holders of the 3% convertible promissory notes agreed to cancel the 3% convertible promissory notes in the principal amount of $5,000,000 (including all accrued and unpaid interest thereon), and all of the warrants, in exchange for the Company’s issuance of new 1% unsecured senior convertible promissory notes due 2012 in the principal amount of $5,000,000. The 1% convertible promissory notes bear interest at 1% per annum, payable semi-annually in arrears, mature on April 1, 2012, and are convertible at any time into shares of our common stock at an fixed conversion price of $0.02326 per share, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments. Pursuant to EITF Issue No. 96-19 “Debtor’s Accounting For a Modification or Exchange of Debt Instruments” (ASC Topic 470-50) and EITF Issue No. 06-6 “Debtor’s Accounting for a Modification (or Exchange) of Convertible Debt Instruments” (ASC Topic 470-50-40), the Company determined that the original convertible notes and new convertible notes were with substantially different terms and hence reported in the same manner as an extinguishment of original notes and issuance of new notes.

The Company determined the new 1% convertible promissory notes to be conventional convertible instruments under EITF Issue No. 05-2 “The Meaning of “Conventional Convertible Debt Instrument” in Issue No. 00-19” (ASC Topic 815-40-25). Its embedded conversion option was qualify for equity classification pursuant to EITF Issue No. 00-19 “Accounting for Derivative Financial Instruments Indexed to, and Potentially Settled in, a Company’s Own Stock” (ASC Topic 815-40), and met the other criteria in paragraph 11(a) of SFAS No. 133 “Accounting for Derivative Instruments and Hedging Activities” (ASC Topic 815-10-15-74). The embedded beneficial conversion feature was recognized and measured by allocating a portion of the proceeds equal to the intrinsic value of that feature to additional paid-in capital. The debt discount resulting from the allocation of proceeds to the beneficial conversion feature is amortized over the term of the 1% convertible promissory notes from the respective dates of issuance using the effective yield method.

(M) Early Redemption of Convertible Promissory Notes
 
Should early redemption of convertible promissory notes occur, the unamortized portion of the associated deferred charges and debt discount would be fully written off and any early redemption premium will be recognized as expense upon its occurrence. All related charges, if material, would be aggregated and included in a separate line “charges on early redemption of convertible promissory notes”. Such an expense would be included in ordinary activities on the condensed consolidated statements of operations as required by SFAS No. 145 “Rescission of FASB Statements No. 4, 44, and 64, Amendment of FASB Statement No. 13, and Technical Corrections” (ASC Topic 470-50).
 
(N) Revenue Recognition
 
For advertising services, the Company recognizes revenue in the period when advertisements are either aired or published. Revenues from advertising barter transactions are recognized in the period during which the advertisements are either aired or published. Expenses from barter transactions are recognized in the period as incurred. Barter transactions are accounted in accordance with EITF Issue No. 99-17 “Accounting for Advertising Barter Transactions” (ASC Topic 605-20-25), which are recorded at the fair value of the advertising provided based on the Company’s own historical practice of receiving cash for similar advertising from buyers unrelated to the counterparty in the barter transactions. The amounts included in advertising services revenue and general and administrative for barter transactions were approximately $nil and $41,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008, respectively.
 
For hotel management services, the Company recognizes revenue in the period when the services are rendered and collection is reasonably assured.
 
For tour services, the Company recognizes services-based revenue when the services have been performed. Tianma offers independent leisure travelers bundled packaged-tour products which include both air-ticketing and hotel reservations. Tianma’s packaged-tour products cover a variety of domestic and international destinations.
 
Tianma organizes inbound and outbound tour and travel packages which can incorporate, among other things, air and land transportation, hotels, restaurants and tickets to tourist destinations and other excursions. Tianma books all elements of such packages with third-party service providers such as airlines, car rental companies and hotels, or through other tour package providers and then resells such packages to its clients. A typical sale of tour services is as follows:

1.     
Tianma, in consultation with sub-agents, organizes a tour or travel package, including making reservations for blocks of tickets, rooms, etc. with third-party service providers. Tianma may be required to make deposits, pay all or part of the ultimate fees charged by such service providers or make legally binding commitments to pay such fees. For air-tickets, Tianma normally books a block of air tickets with airlines in advance and pays the full amount of the tickets to reserve seats before any tours are formed. The air tickets are usually valid for a certain period of time. If the pre-packaged tours do not materialize and are eventually not formed, Tianma will resell the air tickets to other travel agents or customers. For hotels, meals and transportation, Tianma usually pays an upfront deposit of 50-60% of the total cost. The remaining balance is then settled after completion of the tours.

2.     
Tianma, through its sub-agents, advertises tour and travel packages at prices set by Tianma and sub-agents.

3.     
Customers approach Tianma or its appointed sub-agents to book an advertised packaged tour.

4.     
The customers pay a deposit to Tianma directly or through its appointed sub-agents.

5.     
When the minimum required number of customers (which number is different for each tour based on the elements and costs of the tour) for a particular tour is reached, Tianma will contact the customers for tour confirmation and request full payment. All payments received by the appointed sub-agents are paid to Tianma prior to the commencement of the tours.

6.     
Tianma will then make or finalize corresponding bookings with outside service providers such as airlines, bus operators, hotels, restaurants, etc. and pay any unpaid fees or deposits to such providers.

Tianma is the principal in such transactions and the primary obligor to the third-party providers regardless of whether it has received full payment from its customers. In addition, Tianma is also liable to the customers for any claims relating to the tours such as accidents or tour services. Tianma has adequate insurance coverage for accidental loss arising during the tours. The Company utilizes a network of sub-agents who operate strictly in Tianma’s name and can only advertise and promote the business of Tianma with the prior approval of Tianma.

(O) Stock-based Compensation
 
In December 2004, the FASB issued SFAS No. 123R “Share-Based Payment” (ASC Topic 718). Effective January 1, 2006, the Company adopted SFAS No. 123R (ASC Topic 718), using a modified prospective application transition method, which establishes accounting for stock-based awards in exchange for employee services. Under this application, the Company is required to record stock-based compensation expense for all awards granted after the date of adoption and unvested awards that were outstanding as of the date of adoption. SFAS No. 123R (ASC Topic 718) requires that stock-based compensation cost is measured at grant date, based on the fair value of the award, and recognized in expense over the requisite services period.
 
Common stock, stock options and warrants issued to other than employees or directors in exchange for services are recorded on the basis of their fair value, as required by SFAS No. 123R (ASC Topic 718), which is measured as of the date required by EITF Issue 96-18 “Accounting for Equity Instruments That Are Issued to Other Than Employees for Acquiring, or in Conjunction with Selling, Goods or Services” (ASC Topic 505-50). In accordance with EITF 96-18 (ASC Topic 505-50), the non-employee stock options or warrants are measured at their fair value by using the Black-Scholes option pricing model as of the earlier of the date at which a commitment for performance to earn the equity instruments is reached (“performance commitment date”) or the date at which performance is complete (“performance completion date”). The stock-based compensation expenses are recognized on a straight-line basis over the shorter of the period over which services are to be received or the vesting period. Accounting for non-employee stock options or warrants which involve only performance conditions when no performance commitment date or performance completion date has occurred as of reporting date requires measurement at the equity instruments then-current fair value. Any subsequent changes in the market value of the underlying common stock are reflected in the expense recorded in the subsequent period in which that change occurs.
 
(P) Income Taxes
 
The Company accounts for income taxes under SFAS No. 109 “Accounting for Income Taxes” (ASC Topic 740). Under SFAS No. 109 (ASC Topic 740), deferred tax assets and liabilities are provided for the future tax effects attributable to temporary differences between the financial statement carrying amounts of assets and liabilities and their respective tax bases, and for the expected future tax benefits from items including tax loss carry forwards.
 
Deferred tax assets and liabilities are measured using enacted tax rates expected to apply to taxable income in the years in which those temporary differences are expected to be recovered or reversed. Under SFAS No. 109 (ASC Topic 740), the effect on deferred tax assets and liabilities of a change in tax rates is recognized in income in the period that includes the enactment date.
 
(Q) Comprehensive Income (Loss)
 
The Company follows SFAS No. 130 “Reporting Comprehensive Income” (ASC Topic 220) for the reporting and display of its comprehensive income (loss) and related components in the financial statements and thereby reports a measure of all changes in equity of an enterprise that results from transactions and economic events other than transactions with the shareholders. Items of comprehensive income (loss) are reported in both the consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss and the consolidated statement of stockholders’ equity.

(R) Earnings (Loss) Per Common Share
 
Basic earnings (loss) per common share are computed in accordance with SFAS No. 128 “Earnings Per Share” (ASC Topic 260) by dividing the net income (loss) attributable to holders of common stock by the weighted average number of shares of common stock outstanding during the period. Diluted earnings (loss) per share is computed by dividing net income (loss) by the weighted average number of common shares including the dilutive effect of common share equivalents then outstanding.
 
The diluted net loss per share is the same as the basic net loss per share for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2009 and 2008 as all potential ordinary shares including stock options and warrants are anti-dilutive and are therefore excluded from the computation of diluted net loss per share.

(S) Operating Leases
 
Leases where substantially all the rewards and risks of ownership of assets remain with the leasing company are accounted for as operating leases. Payments made under operating leases are charged to the condensed consolidated statements of operations on a straight-line basis over the lease period.
 
(T) Foreign Currency Translation
 
The assets and liabilities of the Company’s subsidiaries and variable interest entities denominated in currencies other than U.S. dollars are translated into U.S. dollars using the applicable exchange rates at the balance sheet date. For condensed consolidated statements of operations’ items, amounts denominated in currencies other than U.S. dollars were translated into U.S. dollars using the average exchange rate during the period. Equity accounts were translated at their historical exchange rates. Net gains and losses resulting from translation of foreign currency financial statements are included in the statements of stockholders’ equity as accumulated other comprehensive income (loss). Foreign currency transaction gains and losses are reflected in the condensed consolidated statements of operations.
 
(U) Fair Value of Financial Instruments
 
SFAS No. 157 “Fair Value Measurements” (ASC Topic 820) defines fair value as the price that would be received from selling an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date. When determining the fair value measurements for assets and liabilities required or permitted to be recorded at fair value, the Company considers the principal or most advantageous market in which it would transact and it considers assumptions that market participants would use when pricing the asset or liability.

SFAS No. 157 (ASC Topic 820) establishes a fair value hierarchy that requires an entity to maximize the use of observable inputs and minimize the use of unobservable inputs when measuring fair value. A financial instrument’s categorization within the fair value hierarchy is based upon the lowest level of input that is significant to the fair value measurement. SFAS No. 157 (ASC Topic 820) establishes three levels of inputs that may be used to measure fair value:

Level 1 - Level 1 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are quoted prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities.

Level 2 - Level 2 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are inputs other than quoted prices included within Level 1 that are observable for the asset or liability such as quoted prices for similar assets or liabilities in active markets; quoted prices for identical assets or liabilities in markets with insufficient volume or infrequent transactions (less active markets); or model-derived valuations in which significant inputs are observable or can be derived principally from, or corroborated by, observable market data.

Level 3 - Level 3 applies to assets or liabilities for which there are unobservable inputs to the valuation methodology that are significant to the measurement of the fair value of the assets or liabilities.
 
The carrying value of the Company’s financial instruments, which consist of cash, accounts receivable, prepayments for advertising operating rights, prepaid expenses and other current assets, accounts payable, accrued expenses and other payables, approximates fair value due to the short-term maturities.
 
The carrying value of the Company’s financial instruments related to warrants associated with convertible promissory notes is stated at a value being equal to the allocated proceeds of convertible promissory notes based on the relative fair value of notes and warrants. In the measurement of the fair value of these instruments, the Black-Scholes option pricing model is utilized, which is consistent with the Company’s historical valuation techniques. These derived fair value estimates are significantly affected by the assumptions used. The allocated value of the financial instruments related to warrants associated with convertible promissory notes is recorded as an equity, which does not require to mark-to-market as of each subsequent reporting period.
 
(V) Concentration of Credit Risk
 
The Company places its cash with various financial institutions. The Company believes that no significant credit risk exists as these cash investments are made with high-credit-quality financial institutions.
 
All the revenue of the Company and a significant portion of the Company’s assets are generated and located in China. The Company’s business activities and accounts receivable are mainly from advertising services. Deposits are usually collected from customers in advance and the Company performs ongoing credit evaluation of its customers. The Company believes that no significant credit risk exists as credit loss.
 
(W) Segmental Reporting
 
SFAS No. 131 “Disclosures about Segments of an Enterprise and Related Information” (ASC Topic 280) establishes standards for reporting information about operating segments on a basis consistent with the Company’s internal organization structure as well as information about geographical areas, business segments and major customers in financial statements. The Company’s operating segments are organized internally primarily by the type of services rendered. In September 2008, the Company disposed of its entire travel business and focus on developing its media business in the PRC. Accordingly, it is management’s view that the services rendered by the Company are of one operating segment: Media Network.
 
NOTE 4.                   RESTATEMENT AND RECLASSIFICATION

 (A)           Restatement of Financial Results

On October 10, 2008, the Company filed a Current Report on Form 8-K to announce that the Company’s Board of Directors, based upon the consideration of issues addressed in the SEC review and the recommendation of the Audit Committee, determined that the Company should restate its previously issued consolidated financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2007 and unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the interim periods ended March 31, 2008 and June 30, 2008.
 
The restatement adjustments corrected the accounting errors arising from its misapplication of accounting policies to the discount associated with the beneficial conversion feature attributed to the issuance of the 3% convertible promissory notes in 2007. The Company initially amortized the discount according to EITF Issue No. 98-5 “Accounting for Convertible Securities with Beneficial Conversion Features or Contingently Adjustable Conversion Ratio” (ASC Topic 470-20), which stated that discount resulting from allocation of proceeds to the beneficial conversion feature should be recognized as interest and other debt–related expenses over the minimum period from the date of issuance to the date of earliest conversion. As the notes are convertible at the date of issuance, the Company fully amortized such discount through interest and other debt–related expenses at the date of issuance accordingly. However, according to Issue 6 of EITF Issue No. 00-27 “Application of Issue No. 98-5 to Certain Convertible Instruments” (ASC Topic 470-20), EITF Issues No. 98-5 (ASC Topic 470-20) should be modified to require the discount related to the beneficial conversion feature to be accreted from the date of issuance to the stated redemption date regardless of when the earliest conversion date occurs using the effective interest method. The restatement adjustments were to reflect the retrospective application of the Issue 6 of EITF Issue No. 00-27 (ASC Topic 470-20).

(B)           Reclassification
 
To better present the results of the Company, the “by function of expense” method for the presentation of the condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive loss has been adopted. Comparative amounts for prior periods have been reclassified in order to achieve a consistent presentation.
 
In addition, the Company completed the disposal of travel network during the year ended December 31, 2008. As a result of the disposal, the condensed consolidated financial statements of the Company reflect travel network operation as discontinued operations for all presented periods. Accordingly, revenues and costs and expenses of travel network have been excluded from the respective accounts in the condensed consolidated statements of operations. The net operating results of the discontinued operations have been reported, net of applicable income taxes, as “Net income from Discontinued Operations, Net of Income Taxes”. For details, please refer to Note 15 – Discontinued Operations.
 
The above reclassification does not have an effect on net loss and net loss per share.

In addition, pursuant to the Warrant Purchase Agreement, the Company issued warrants to purchase up to 250,000 shares of the Company’s common stock at the exercise price of $2.30 per share, which are exercisable for a period of two years.

On February 13, 2008, the Company fully redeemed the 12% Convertible Promissory Note at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of $5,000,000 plus accrued and unpaid interest. No penalty or premium was charged for such early redemption.

The 3% Convertible Promissory Notes bore interest at 3% per annum payable semi-annually in arrears and were convertible into shares of common stock at an initial conversion price of $1.65 per share, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments. In addition, the conversion price was subject to adjusted downward on an annual basis if the Company should fail to meet certain annual EPS targets described in the Purchase Agreement. The EPS targets for fiscal 2008, 2009 and 2010 are $0.081, $0.453, and $0.699 respectively. In the event of a default, or if the Company’s actual EPS as defined in the Purchase Agreement for any fiscal year is less than 80% of the respective EPS target, certain Investors could require the Company to redeem the 3% Convertible Promissory Notes at 100% of the principal amount, plus any accrued and unpaid interest, plus an amount representing a 20% internal rate of return on the then outstanding principal amount. The Warrants were to expire on June 30, 2011 and granted the holders the right to acquire shares of common stock at $2.50 and $3.50 per share, subject to customary anti-dilution adjustments. The exercise price of the Warrants would also be adjusted downward whenever the conversion price of the 3% Convertible Promissory Notes is adjusted downward. In connection with the issuance of the 3% Senior Secured Convertible Notes, the Company also entered into registration rights agreement with the Investors, pursuant to which, as amended, the Company agreed to file at their request, a registration statement registering for resale any shares issued to the Investor upon conversion of the 3% Convertible Promissory Notes or exercise of the Warrants.

On January 31, 2008, the Company issued $35,000,000 in 3% Convertible Promissory Notes and amended and restated $15,000,000 in 3% Convertible Promissory Notes issued in late 2007. Concurrent with the Third Closing, the Company loaned substantially all the proceeds from 3% Convertible Promissory Notes to its directly wholly owned subsidiary, NCN Group Limited (the “NCN Group”), and such loan was evidenced by an intercompany note issued by NCN Group in favor of the Company (the “NCN Group Note”). At the same time, the Company entered into a Security Agreement, pursuant to which the Company granted to the collateral agent for the benefit of the convertible note holders a first-priority security interest in certain of its assets, including the NCN Group Note and 66% of the shares of the NCN Group. In addition, the NCN Group and certain of the Company’s indirectly wholly owned subsidiaries each granted the Company a security interest in certain of the assets of such subsidiaries to, among other things, secure the NCN Group Note and certain related obligations.
 
As of December 31, 2008, the Company failed to meet EPS target for fiscal 2008. The Investors agreed the conversion price of the 3% Convertible Promissory Notes remained unchanged at $1.65 and have not proposed any adjustment to the conversion price. None of warrants associated with the above convertible promissory notes has been exercised.

(C)  Debt Restructuring and 1% Convertible Promissory Notes

On April 2, 2009, the Company entered into a new financing arrangement with the holders of the 3% Convertible Promissory Notes and Warrants and a new investor.

Pursuant to a note exchange and option agreement, dated April 2, 2009 (the “Note Exchange and Option Agreement”), between the Company and Keywin Holdings Limited (“Keywin”), Keywin exchanged the 3% Convertible Promissory Notes in the principal amount of $45,000,000, and all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, for 307,035,463 shares of the Company’s common stock and an option to purchase an aggregate of 122,814,185 shares of the Company’s common stock, for an aggregate purchase price of $2,000,000, exercisable for a three-month period commencing on April 2, 2009 (the “Keywin Option”). As of June 30, 2009, such option to purchase the Company’s common stock has not been exercised. However, pursuant to the terms of an amendment, dated July 1, 2009, the Company agreed to extend the exercise period for such option from a three-month period ending on July 1, 2009, to a six-month period ending October 1, 2009.

The fair values of the financial instruments associated with warrants of both the 12% Convertible Promissory Note and 3% Convertible Promissory Notes were determined utilizing Black-Scholes option pricing model, which is consistent with the Company’s historical valuation methods. The following assumptions and estimates were used in the Black-Scholes option pricing model: (1) 12% Convertible Promissory Note: volatility of 182%; an average risk-free interest rate of 3.52%; dividend yield of 0%; and an expected life of 2 years, (2) 3% Convertible Promissory Notes: volatility of 47%; an average risk-free interest rate of 3.30%; dividend yield of 0%; and an expected life of 3.5 years. The respective allocated proceeds to the warrants of 12% Convertible Promissory Note and 3% Convertible Promissory Notes amounted to $333,670 and $8,300,000, respectively, is recorded in additional paid-in capital and the respective debt discount is amortized over the life of convertible promissory notes, using the effective yield method.
 
The embedded beneficial conversion feature are recognized and measured by allocating a portion of the proceeds equal to the intrinsic value of that feature to additional paid-in capital. The intrinsic value of beneficial conversion feature is calculated according to EITF Issue No. 98-5 “Accounting for Convertible Securities with Beneficial Conversion Features or Contingently Adjustable Conversion Ratio” (ASC Topic 470-20) and EITF Issue No. 00-27 “Application of Issue No. 98-5 to Certain Convertible Instruments” (ASC Topic 470-20). Only the 3% Convertible Promissory Notes and 1% Convertible Promissory Notes are considered to have a beneficial conversion feature as the their effective conversion price was less than the Company’s market price of common stock at commitment date. For the 12% Convertible Promissory Note, no beneficial conversion feature existed. The value of beneficial conversion feature of 3% Convertible Promissory Notes and 1% Convertible Promissory Notes amounted to $15,757,575 and $1,447,745, respectively, is recorded as a reduction in the carrying value of the convertible promissory notes against additional paid-in capital. As the 3% Convertible Promissory Notes and 1% Convertible Promissory Notes have stated redemption dates, the respective debt discount is amortized over the term of the notes from the respective date of issuance using the effective yield method.

On February 13, 2008, the Company fully redeemed 12% Convertible Promissory Note at a redemption price equal to 100% of the principal amount of $5,000,000 plus accrued and unpaid interest. Accordingly, all the associated unamortized deferred charges and unamortized debt discount of $48,261 and $149,885, respectively, at the date of redemption were immediately recognized as expenses and included in amortization of deferred charges and debt discount on the condensed consolidated statements of operations during the nine months ended September 30, 2008.

On April 2, 2009, Keywin exchanged 3% Convertible Promissory Notes in the principal amount of $45,000,000 and all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, for 307,035,463 shares of the Company’s common stock. All the associated unamortized deferred charges and unamortized debt discount of the 3% Convertible Promissory Notes in the principal amount of $45,000,000 amounting to $1,005,774 and $15,930,054, respectively, at the date of conversion were immediately recognized as expenses and included in amortization of deferred charges and debt discount on the condensed consolidated statements of operations during the nine months ended September 30, 2009.

Non-cash debt conversion charges

Pursuant to the debt restructuring in April 2009, the Company provided an inducement conversion offer to Keywin who exchanged 3% Convertible Promissory Notes in the principal amount of $45,000,000 and all accrued and unpaid interest thereon, for 307,035,463 shares of the Company’s common stock. To induce conversion, the Company has reduced the conversion price and additionally granted an option to Keywin to purchase an aggregate of 122,814,185 shares of the Company’s common stock, for an aggregate purchase price of $2,000,000, exercisable for a three-month period. Accordingly, for the nine months ended September 30, 2009, the Company recognized a non-cash debt conversion charge of $10,204,627 equal to the fair value of the incremental consideration (including both reduction in the conversion price and grant of the purchase option). The fair value of the purchase option was determined utilizing Black-Scholes option pricing model. The following assumptions and estimates were used: volatility of 129%; an average risk-free interest rate of 0.22%; dividend yield of 0%; and an expected life of 3 months.

Loss on early extinguishment of debt

As aforementioned, on April 2, 2009, the Company, the Investors agreed to cancel the 3% Convertible Promissory Notes in the principal amount of $5,000,000 held by the Investors (including all accrued and unpaid interest thereon), and all of the Warrants, in exchange for the Company’s issuance of the 1% Unsecured Senior Convertible Promissory Notes in the principal amount of $5,000,000. The Company determined that the 3% Convertible Promissory Notes and the 1% Convertible Promissory Notes were with substantially different terms and hence reported in the same manner as an extinguishment of the 3% Convertible Promissory Notes and issuance of the 1% Convertible Promissory Notes. Accordingly, all the associated unamortized deferred charges and unamortized debt discount of the 3% Convertible Promissory Notes in the principal amount of $5,000,000 amounted to $111,753 and $1,770,006 respectively at the date of extinguishment were immediately recognized as expenses and all the accrued and unpaid interest of $185,075 at the date of extinguishment were recognized as income. Such expenses, net of income amounted to $1,696,684 were included in the loss on early extinguishment of debt in the condensed consolidated statements of operations during nine months ended September 30, 2009.

The Company accounts for loss contingencies in accordance with SFAS No. 5 “Accounting for Loss Contingencies” (ASC Topic 450) and other related guidelines. Set forth below is a description of certain loss contingencies as of September 30, 2009 and management’s opinion as to the likelihood of loss in respect of loss contingency.
  
On March 20, 2008, the Company’s wholly-owned subsidiary NCN Huamin entered into a rental agreement with Beijing Chengtian Zhihong TV & Film Production Co., Ltd. (“Chengtian”), pursuant to which, a certain office premises located in Beijing was leased from Chengtian to NCN Huamin for a term of three years, commencing April 1, 2008. On December 30, 2008, NCN Huamin issued a notice to Chengtian to terminate the rental agreement effective on December 31, 2008, as Chengtian had breached several provisions as stated in the rental agreement and refused to take any remedial actions. On January 14, 2009, NCN Huamin received a notice from Beijing Arbitration Commission that Chengtian, as plaintiff, had initiated a lawsuit against NCN Huamin seeking an aggregate of approximately $505,000 for unpaid rental-related expense plus accrued interest as well as compensation for unilateral termination of the rental contract. On February 25, 2009, NCN Huamin counter-claimed for breach of rental contract against Chengtian and asserted to claim an aggregate of approximately $155,000 from Chengtian for overpayment of rental expenses and compensation for Chengtian’s breach of contract.

In July 2009, the Beijing Arbitration Commission made a judgment that Huamin is liable to pay Chengtian of $280,000. In October, 2009, the Company appealed to Beijing Second Intermediate People's Court against the arbitration decision. At present, the outcome of this lawsuit cannot be reasonably predicted. Management does not believe that the outcome of this litigation will have a material impact on the Company’s consolidated financial statements, or the Company’s results of operations.

The securities that could potentially dilute basic net loss per common share in the future that were not included in the computation of diluted net loss per common share because of anti-dilutive effect as of September 30, 2009 and 2008 were summarized as follows:
