2011-05-16 18:10 1482

Continued Progress with Mobile Device Business

Gross Profit and Gross Margin Increased Year-over-Year

SHENZHEN, China, May 16, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- SinoHub, Inc. ("SinoHub" or the "Company"), (NYSE Amex: SIHI), an electronics company whose main growth driver is manufacturing and distributing custom, private-label mobile phones, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011.

FIRST QUARTER 2011 FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Total net sales declined slightly year-over-year to US$38.0 million in the first quarter of 2011 versus US$38.6 million in the first quarter of 2010.

  • Gross profit was US$7.7 million compared to US$7.1 million in the same quarter in 2010. Gross margin was 20.3% compared to 18.4% in the first quarter of 2010.

  • Cash used in operations was US$4.4 million, compared with US$38,000 in the first quarter of 2010.

  • Net income was US$3.54 million, representing a slight increase from US$3.45 million in the first quarter of 2010.

  • Net income per basic and diluted shares were both US$0.12, down from US$0.13 per basic share and unchanged from US$0.12 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2010.

Net income for the first quarter of 2011 and the first quarter of 2010 were affected by a restatement to properly account for certain terms of the Company's outstanding warrants issued on March 2, 2010. See "Restatement Concerning Warrant Liability" below.

RESTATEMENT CONCERNING WARRANT LIABILITY

The Company has determined that its historical financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2010 and the fiscal quarters ended March 31, 2010, June 30, 2010 and September 30, 2010 included in the Company's periodic reports filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") require restatement to reflect the proper accounting for 816,670 common stock purchase warrants issued in connection with its March 2, 2010 private placement (the "2010 Warrants") as a derivative liability rather than as permanent equity.

The Company is in the process of preparing amendments to the Form 10-Qs and Form 10-K for the prior periods noted above and plans to file those amendments with the SEC, reflecting the restatements required relative to the 2010 Warrants. Further information concerning the restatement is detailed in the Company's Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2011 and in the Company's May 16, 2011 Current Report on Form 8-K relative to this matter.

The Company's Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2011 incorporates corrections made in response to the accounting error described above by restating the Company's financial statements presented therein for the three months ended March 31, 2010. The corrections to the quarterly information contained in such Form 10-Q had no impact on the Company's previously reported operations or cash flows for the periods being restated.

The results reported in this press release and the financial information attached hereto are based upon the changed accounting for the 2010 Warrants as the same is to be restated in the planned amended periodic reports to be filed with the SEC.  

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS:

Commenting on the results, SinoHub's CEO, Mr. Harry Cochran said, "We are pleased with the continued growth of our ICM business and improving gross margins. As the Company evolves, it is important to maintain focus on the evolution of the mobile device market and on our ability to deliver on orders for new products and in new geographies. As such, we continued to strategically shift our focus to the long-term development of the ICM business. Our top-line performance was impacted by a decrease in sales from our ECSS business segment related to our strategic shift towards a greater ICM focus, and a challenging year-over-year comparable as the first quarter of 2010 was uncharacteristically strong. The startup year for our factory (April 2010 – April 2011) went well, but we still recorded losses for that subsidiary, resulting in increased income tax expense compared to the first quarter of 2010. This impact is a function of the investments made in support of our new growth initiative, and a normal part of starting up a manufacturing operation. More importantly, the strong growth of our ICM business confirms the value of our business model to deliver custom designed mobile phones to distributors and operators that give them a competitive advantage in their local markets using our joint design process. In 2011, to further capitalize on growth opportunities from our ICM segment, we plan to begin production of our own brand of mobile phones for sale in China."

FIRST QUARTER 2011 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net Sales

Net sales for the first quarter of 2011 were US$38.0 million, representing a decrease of 1.6% from US$38.6 million in the first quarter of 2010. The year-over-year decrease was primarily attributable to a decline in sales of electronic components in the ECSS business segment. Sales in the ICM business segment in the first quarter of 2011 were US$16.4 million, up 156% over US$6.4 million in the first quarter of 2010 based on increased sales of mobile phones and on sales in the contract motherboard manufacturing business which did not exist in the first quarter of 2010.

Net sales from the electronic component sales and supply chain management services segment (collectively ECSS) for the first quarter of 2011 were US$21.5 million, a year-over-year decrease of 33.2% from US$32.2 million in the first quarter of 2010. The year-over-year decrease was primarily driven by shortages in the supply of electronic components in the first quarter of 2011 and the fact that in the first quarter a number of ECSS customers became ICM customers and began to purchase finished goods from the Company as opposed to components.

Gross Profit and Margin

Gross profit for the quarter was US$7.7 million, up 8.5% from US$7.1 million in the first quarter of 2010. Gross margin for the quarter was 20.3%, up from 18.4% in the first quarter of 2010.

Operating Expenses

Operating cost and expenses, including selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses, professional services and other operating income, were US$3.2 million, a year-over-year increase of 28% from US$2.5 million in the first quarter of 2010 due primarily to the costs associated with the factory which did not exist in the first quarter of 2010.

Income from Operations

Income from operations for the quarter was US$4.5 million, or 11.8% of sales, as compared to operating income of US$4.6 million, or 11.9% of sales in the first quarter of 2010, the higher gross margin being offset by increased costs associated with manufacturing.

Income Taxes

The Company recorded US$1.5 million of income tax expenses in the first quarter of 2011, versus the US$1.0 million of income tax expenses it recorded in the corresponding period in 2010. The reason for the large increase is that taxes are accrued by subsidiary. There was a loss in the manufacturing subsidiary in the first quarter of 2011 that offsets profits from other subsidiaries on consolidation with no corresponding tax offset.

Net Income

Net income attributable to SinoHub's shareholders was US$3.54 million, compared to US$3.45 million in the first quarter of 2010 due primarily to the impact of US$511,000 in income from changes in the adjustment for warrant derivative liability during the first quarter of 2011 compared to an expense of US$44,000 for such item in the first quarter of 2010 (after restatement) which was offset in part by a higher tax accrual during the first quarter of 2011. Net margin was 9.3%, as compared to 8.9% in the first quarter of 2010. Net income per basic and diluted shares were both US$0.12, down from US$0.13 per basic share and unchanged from US$0.12 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2010, based on 30.2 million and 30.3 million weighted average, basic and diluted shares outstanding, respectively.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2011, the Company had US$14.0 million in cash and cash equivalents, an increase from US$4.5 million as of December 31, 2010 resulting from net proceeds of US$10.4 million raised through a sale of equity in March of 2011. The Company had working capital of US$69.5 million on March 31, 2011, up from US$57.5 million at the end of 2010, and a current ratio of 1.8 to 1 on March 31, 2011.

As of March 31, 2011, the Company had approximately US$5 million available to borrow under its credit facilities.  

During the three months ended March 31, 2011, the net amount of cash used in the Company's operating activities was US$4.4 million, compared to US$38,000 in the same period in 2010, which was mainly attributable to the increase in inventories and accounts receivable.

As of March 31, 2011, inventories were approximately US$20.0 million and accounts receivable were US$49.3 million, compared to approximately US$14.6 million and US$45.7 million on December 31, 2010, respectively. The increase in accounts receivable resulted primarily from lower collections in the first quarter of 2011.

BUSINESS OUTLOOK

SinoHub has begun a strategic initiative to develop its own mobile phone brand in China, the world's largest mobile phone market. There are several examples of companies, the most notable being Tianyu in Beijing, that have executed this strategy successfully. The Company will continue to make and sell private label, custom design mobile phones for distributors and operators elsewhere. We believe the strategy to create our own brand in China, where a marketable brand name is necessary for success, combined with our strategy of using our joint design process to create mobile devices that give our customers competitive advantage in their local markets, will expand our market opportunity, help drive margin improvement and create a more defensible position for our Company.
