BUSINESS OVERVIEW

China 3C Group (formerly Sun Oil & Gas Corp.) (the “Company”, “we”, “us”) was incorporated on August 20, 1998 under the laws of the State of Nevada as Editworks, Ltd. In 2001, the Company changed its name to Trilucent Technologies Corp. The Company changed its name to Anza Innovations, Inc. in 2003. In 2004, the Company changed its name to Gaofeng Gold Corp. and then later in 2004 to Sun Oil & Gas Corporation. In December 2005, we changed our name to China 3C Group, to more accurately reflect the business of the Company.

Due to the strategic change to the new business operation model “stores in stores”, sales increased substantially in 2006. We continued to establish more “stores in stores” in Eastern China. More than 800 “stores in stores” were established or acquired by the end of 2006. This new business model results expanded marketing channels thus positively stimulating the growth of sales.

During 2006 we acquired two companies whose main products are digital products and small home electronics in 2006. These acquisitions further brought in considerable sales and profit to the Company.

Capital Future Development Limited (“CFDL”)

On December 21, 2005, we entered into a Merger Agreement with CFDL, pursuant to which we acquired CFDL, thus making CFDL a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. CFDL was incorporated on July 22, 2004 under the laws of the British Virgin Island and a holding company that owns all of the issued and outstanding stock of Zhejiang Yong Xin Digital Technology Company Limited (“ZYXD”), Hangzhou Sanhe Electronic Technology Limited (see further discussion below), and Shanghai Joy & Harmony Electronics Company Limited (see further discussion below).

HWDA and YYXC each own the remaining 10% of other’s issued and outstanding capital stock. HWDA and YYXC are operating companies, thereby indirectly acquired the Chinese holding company ZYXD and its Chinese operating company subsidiaries, HWDA and YYXC. CFDL shareholders received stock consideration consisting of 35,000,000 newly issued shares of Company common stock, which were divided proportionally among the CFDL shareholders in accordance with their respective ownership interests in CFDL immediately before the completion of this transaction, and aggregate cash consideration of $500,000, again divided proportionally among the CFDL shareholders in accordance with their respective ownership interests in CFDL immediately before the completion of this transaction and payable no later than the first anniversary of the closing of this transaction pursuant to nine interest-free promissory notes.

Business Description

ZYXD is a large-scale enterprise integrating the selling, circulation and modern logistics of 3C products (communication products, information technology (“IT”) products and digital products) in China. ZYXD distributes products to both first and second tier retailers in China. First tier retailers are defined as large retailing business centers and second tier retailers are defined as small individual retail stores. ZYXD allocates its distribution channels according to the size and population of the cities in which the retailers are located, thus distributing products mainly to second tier retailers in bigger Chinese cities that have larger populations and distributing products to first tier retailers in smaller Chinese cities that have relatively smaller populations.

ZYXD does not have a research and development department and does not initiate any advertising or promotion activities on the products because it is not the manufacturer. However, ZYXD coordinates with the promotional activities initiated or planned by the product manufacturers. ZYXD prefers to focus on circulation and distribution activity and thereby eliminate unnecessary expenses.

ZYXD manages credit risk by having its own credit system with the retailer customers. ZYXD provides different policies or benefits on the payment and credit period according to different credit level of the customers.

ZYXD’s strategy is to combine the distribution channel with the chain stores, selling telecommunication products, digital products, and IT products. The sales of ZYXD are primarily focusing in East China. ZYXD’s plan is to move out from the cord telephones market, focus on fax machines, cell phones and other digital and IT products throughout China.

ZYXD strictly follows all China state regulations regarding after sales services, including policies allowing products to be returned and exchanged within seven days, providing a one-year repair guarantee, and having specialists focus on after sales services.

Competition

Distribution Channel Management

Distribution Channel Management is the integration of key business processes from end user through to original suppliers that provide products, services and information that add value for customers and other stakeholders. In the fax machine industry, ZYXD distributes to both first and second tier retailer businesses. ZYXD allocates the channel according to the size of the cities, for example, in some areas like Jinhua, Zhaoxing, Hangzhou, etc, ZYXD will distribute to small retailers. In other areas, the distribution will go to big retailer business center, thus cutting the cost of shipping and enables the products to reach all areas.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION FROM LATEST 10K

Overview

China 3C Group was incorporated on August, 20, 1998 under the laws of the State of Nevada. Capital Future Developments Limited (“CFDL”) was incorporated on July 22, 2004 under the laws of the British Virgin Islands. Zhejiang Yong Xin Digital Technology Co., Ltd. (“Zhejiang”), Yiwu Yong Xin Communication Ltd. (“Yiwu”), Hangzhou Wandga Electronics Co., Ltd. (“Wang Da”), Hangzhou Sanhe Electronic Technology, Limited (“Sanhe”), and Shanghai Joy & Harmony Electronic Development Co., Ltd. (“SJHE”) were incorporated under the laws of Peoples Republic of China on July 11, 2005, July 18, 1997, March 30, 1998, April 12, 2004, and August 25, 2003 respectively. China 3C Group owns 100% of CFDL and CFDL own 100% of the capital stock of SJHE and HSET. Until August 14, 2007, when it made the change to its ownership structure described in the next paragraph in order to comply with certain requirements of PRC law, CFDL owned 100% of the capital stock of Zhenjiang.. Zhejiang owns 90% and Yiwu owns 10% of HWDA. Zhejiang owns 90% and Wang Da owns 10% of Yiwu. Collectively the six corporations are referred to herein as the Company.

On December 21, 2005 CFDL became a wholly owned subsidiary of China 3C Group through a merger with a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company. China 3C Group acquired all of the issued and outstanding capital stock of CFDL pursuant to a Merger Agreement dated at December 21, 2005 by and among China 3C Group, XY Acquisition Corporation, CFDL and the shareholders of CFDL (the “Merger Agreement”). Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, CFDL became a wholly owned subsidiary of China 3C Group and, in exchange for the CFDL shares, China 3C Group issued 35,000,000 shares of its common stock to the shareholders of CFDL, representing 93% of the issued and outstanding capital stock of China 3C Group at that time and a cash consideration of $500,000. On August 15, 2007, in order to comply with the requirements of PRC law, the Company recapitalized its ownership structure. As a result, instead of CFDL owning 100% of Zhejiang as previously was the case, CFDL entered into contractual agreements with Zhejiang whereby CFDL owns a 100% interest in the revenues of Zhejiang. CFDL does not have an equity interest in Zhejiang, but is deemed to have all the economic benefits and liabilities by contract. Under this structure, Zhejiang is now a wholly foreign owned enterprise (WOFE) of CFDL. The contractual agreements give CFDL and its’ equity owners an obligation to absorb, any losses, and rights to receive revenue. CFDL will be unable to make significant decisions about the activities of Zhejiang and can not carry out its principal activities without financial support. These characteristics as defined in Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) interpretation 46, Consolidation of Variable Interest Entities (VIEs), qualifies the business operations of (Zhejiang) to be consolidated with (CFDL) and ultimately with China 3C Group.

As a result of the Merger Agreement, the reorganization was treated as an acquisition by the accounting acquiree that is being accounted for as a recapitalization and as a reverse merger by the legal acquirer for accounting purposes. Pursuant to the recapitalization, all capital stock shares and amounts and per share data have been retroactively restated. Accordingly, the financial statements include the following:

(1) The balance sheet consists of the net assets of the accounting acquirer at historical cost and the net assets of the legal acquirer at historical cost.

(2) The statements of operations include the operations of the accounting acquirer for the period presented and the operations of the legal acquirer from the date of the merger.

The Company is now engaged in the business of mobile phone, facsimile machines, DVD players, stereo’s, speakers, MP3 and MP4 players, iPod, electronic dictionaries, CD players, radios, Walkman, and audio systems distribution. We sell and distribute products through retail stores and secondary distributors.

Pursuant to a share exchange agreement, dated August 3, 2006, we issued 915,751 shares of restricted common stock, to the former shareholders of Hangzhou Sanhe Electronic Technology Ltd. The shares were valued at $3,750,000, which was the fair value of the shares at the date of exchange agreement. This amount is included in the cost of net assets and goodwill purchased.

Pursuant to a share exchange agreement, dated November 28, 2006, we issued 2,723,110 shares of newly issued shares of Common Stock to the former shareholders of Shanghai Joy & Harmony Electronics Company Limited. The shares were valued at $11,000,000, which was the fair value of the shares at the date of exchange agreement. This amount is included in the cost of net assets and goodwill purchased.

We operate substantially all of our retail operations through our “store-in-store” model. Under this model, the Company leases space in major department stores and retailers. Leasing costs can vary based on a percentage of sales, or can be fixed. For the year ended 2007, approximately one-half of the Company’s leases were variable based on sales, and the other half were fixed rents.

Results of Operations

Year Ended December 31, 2007 compared to Year Ended December 31, 2006

The following table presents certain consolidated statement of operations information stated as a percentage of total revenues. All financial information is presented for the 12 months ended December 31, 2007 and 2006.

Net sales

Net sales for 2007 totaled $276,026,673 compared to $148,218,848 for 2006. The large increase amount was due to a combination of both organic growth and contribution from subsidiaries acquired in the second half of 2006. Higher sales volume and the addition of new product lines were also factors. 2007 was a year in which inflation sharply increased in China and we believe inflation had an effect on our sales in 2007.

Percentage of sales

The Company earned approximately 65% of its sales from its retail operations, and the remaining 35% from wholesale operations.

Cost of Sales

Cost of sales for 2007 totaled $226,656,242 or approximately 82.11% of net sales compared to $125,411,758 or approximately 84.61% for 2006. The cost of sales as a percentage decreased during 2007 due to the introduction of new product models with higher gross profit margin. The increased cost of sales was a direct result of the large increase in purchases required to meet our sales levels.

Gross Profit Margin

Gross profit margin for 2007 increased to 17.9% compared to 15.4% for 2006. The increase was partially due to the inclusion of the newly acquired subsidiaries. The gross profit margin increased as we benefited from increasing economies of scale as the Company grew in size and scale. Higher sales of higher margin products such as MP3 and DVD players were also critical factors.

Operating Expense

General and administrative expense for 2007 totaled $13,614,500 or approximately 4.93% of net sales, compared to $5,544,924 or approximately 3.74% for 2006. The increase was primarily due to the costs of managing a larger operation as the Company integrated its newly acquired subsidiaries.

Income from Operations

Income from operations for 2007 was $35,755,931 or 12.95% of net sales as compared to income from operations of $17,262,166 for 2006 or 11.65% of net sales. Increasing economies of scale were a critical factor for the larger margins, as were a higher margin product mix. 2007 was a year in which inflation sharply increased in China and we believe inflation had an effect on our sales in 2007.

Net Income

Net income was $22,919,700 or 8.30% of net sales for 2007 compared to $11,277,126 or 7.61% of net sales for 2006. Increasing economies of scale, a higher margin product mix and significant larger store were all key factors for the large increase in net income.

Cash and cash equivalents were $15,230,508 at June 30, 2007, as compared to $3,274,231 at June 30, 2006, and compared to $3,274,231 of December 31, 2006.

Under the Shanghai Share Exchange Agreement, dated November 28, 2006, in exchange of surrendering all their ownership in Shanghai, the Shanghai Shareholders received both stock consideration and cash consideration. The cash consideration consisted of $7,500,000 in cash is payable as follows: $3,000,000 within 10 business days after the closing of the transaction, and $4,500,000 payable six months after the closing of the transaction as evidenced by promissory notes issued by us to the Shanghai Shareholders.

We believe that the funds available to us are adequate to meet our operating needs for the remainder of 2007.

Capital expenditures

Total capital expenditures for the first six months of 2007 were $62,253 for purchase of fixed assets as compared to $3,860 for the first six months of 2006.

Working Capital Requirements

Historically operations and short term financing have been sufficient to meet our cash needs. We believe that we will be able to generate revenues from sales and raise capital through private placement offerings of our equity securities to provide the necessary cash flow to meet anticipated working capital requirements. However, our actual working capital needs for the long and short term will depend upon numerous factors, including operating results, competition, and the availability of credit facilities, none of which can be predicted with certainty. Future expansion will be limited by the availability of financing products and raising capital.

Off-Balance Sheet Arrangements

We have never entered into any off-balance sheet financing arrangements and have never established any special purpose entities. We have not guaranteed any debt or commitments of other entities or entered into any options on non-financial assets.

Recent Developments

On July 13, 2007, we entered into a Securities Purchase Agreement (the “Purchase Agreement”) with certain investors (the “Investors”) for the sale of an aggregate of 2,095,714 shares of our common stock (the “Shares”) and at a purchase price of $5.60 per Share for an aggregate purchase price equal to approximately $11.74 million in a transaction exempt from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. In connection with the Transaction, we agreed to provide the Investors rights to register the Shares pursuant to the terms of a registration rights agreement (the “Registration Rights Agreement”) to be entered into upon the closing of the Transaction. As of the date of the filing of this 10-Q, the transaction had not closed.

On August 16, 2007, one of the Investors notified us that it was terminating its commitment, pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, to participate in the transaction. This investor previously agreed to invest $5,000,000 to subscribe for 892,857 Shares.
