ROSLYN, N.Y., May 15, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd. (NASDAQ: SINO) ("Sino-Global", the "Company" or "us"), a company engaged in shipping, chartering, logistics and related services, today announced its financial results for the fiscal year 2017 third quarter ended March 31, 2017.

Fiscal Year 2017 Third Quarter Operating and Financial Highlights
(all comparisons to the prior year period)

  • Total revenues increased 134.1% to approximately $2.75 million, as compared to $1.17 million for the prior year. The increase was primarily the result of a shift in the Company's business mix towards less cost services.
  • Gross profit increased to $1.6 million as compared to $553,227 for the prior year period.
  • Net income for the third quarter of fiscal year 2017 was $1.3 million compared to net loss of $854,876.
  • During the quarter, the Company entered into a joint venture agreement with Jetta Global Logistics Inc. to begin providing short haul trucking transportation and logistics services to customers located in the New York and New Jersey areas.
  • The Company signed a strategic cooperation agreement with China Ocean Shipping Agency Qingdao Co. Ltd. which will utilize the Company's full-service logistics platform to arrange the transport of its container shipments into U.S. ports.
  • In February 2017, the Company completed a registered direct offering and sale of the Company's common stock for net proceeds of approximately $4.3 million.
  • As of March 31, 2017, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $8.8 million, working capital of $13.0 million and shareholder equity of $18.5 million; compared to $1.4 million, $6.2 million, and $11.4 million, respectively, as of June 30, 2016.

Management Comments

Mr. Lei Cao, Chief Executive Officer of Sino-Global, stated, "We had a strong quarter and nine-month period marked by significant increases in revenue and a substantial reduction in our operating expenses. We continued to make progress on the initiatives we first implemented last year with the wind down of our Shipping Agency and Ship Management services as well as the discontinuation of our shipping and charter business. The shift in business mix towards lower-cost services has resulted in profit margins for the three-month period of 58.8% as compared to 47.1% for the prior year.

"We entered several agreements over the quarter and are confident that these agreements will further solidify our efforts to grow our business and strengthen our service offerings. During the quarter, we also continued to work with our current customers to improve timely payments for outstanding receivables. Sino-Global's capital position is strong and we completed a registered direct financing during the three-month period. We intend to use the capital raised to further grow the Company and invest in the long-term future of Sino-Global."

  • Total revenues were approximately $2.75 million during the period, compared to $1.17 million in the prior year period. This increase was primarily the result of a rise in revenues for the Company's inland transportation management services, and a shift towards lower- cost services with the addition of freight logistic and container trucking services.
  • The Company's gross profit for the period was $1.6 million, compared to $553,227 in the prior year period. Gross profit margin during the period increased to 58.8% from 47.1%, largely due to a decrease in the cost of revenues for the inland transportation management services segment coupled with an increase in revenue from all business segments.
  • Operating income for the three months ended March 31, 2017 was $961,712, compared to operating loss of $660,740 for the comparable period ended March 31, 2016. This increase was due to revenue generated from inland transportation management services with strong margin contributions.
  • For the three months ended March 31, 2017, the Company reported a net income of $1.3 million, compared to net loss of $854,876 for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

Balance Sheet Information

  • As of March 31, 2017, the Company had $8.8 million in cash and cash equivalents, working capital of $13.0 million and shareholder equity of $18.5 million; compared to $1.4 million, $6.2 million, and $11.4 million, respectively, as of June 30, 2016.
  • The Company holds no long-term debt.
