SinoHub, Inc. Announces 2011 Second Quarter Financial Results

2011-08-15 20:02 1718

SHENZHEN, China, August 15, 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 second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

SECOND QUARTER 2011 FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Total net sales declined year-over-year to US$40.9 million in the second quarter of 2011 versus US$43.9 million in the second quarter of 2010.

  • Gross profit was US$4.4 million compared to US$7.6 million in the same quarter in 2010. Gross margin was 10.8% compared to 17.3% in the second quarter of 2010.

  • Cash used in operations was US$12.3 million, compared with US$2.0 million in the second quarter of 2010.

  • Net income was US$1.0 million, down from US$3.4 million in the second quarter of 2010.

  • Net income per basic and diluted shares were both US$0.03, down from US$0.12 per basic and diluted share, in the second quarter of 2010.

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS:

Commenting on the results, SinoHub's CEO, Mr. Harry Cochran said, "Our results were impacted this quarter by a significant decline in sales from our ICM segment as our largest customer faced inventory issues relating to phones purchased from another supplier. As a result, this customer was unable to purchase any phones from SinoHub during the second quarter. While this is certainly a disappointment in the near-term, it does not in any way change our long-term perspective on the opportunity for SinoHub in the private label, custom design mobile device market. Our ICM segment has grown rapidly since its launch in April 2010, and our success to date has clearly validated our business model and strategic approach. In fact, we are confident that the issues faced by our largest customer with another supplier will only strengthen our position when they return to market, as we have established a clear track record of delivering high quality phones with minimal lead times and flexible order quantities. In addition, our unique joint design process provides our customers with greater flexibility to purchase the right phones for their market, reducing inventory risk. We believe these competitive advantages will allow us to expand our customer base and thereby minimize sales volatility over the mid- to long-term.

"Despite the temporary setback in the second quarter, we remain committed to executing our strategy to deepen our penetration in the white box mobile phone market. As part of that strategy, we have decided to shift the electronic component procurement (ECP) portion of our ECSS segment to a brokerage model from our current model where we take ownership of components. While this will lead to a decrease in ECSS revenue because only commissions on components brokered by SinoHub will be recorded as revenue instead of the full price of the components, the revenue we do generate will carry a higher gross margin. Additionally, the brokerage model will allow for a more efficient use of cash and lower capital requirements, while increasing resources to focus on development of the ICM segment and establishment of the Company's recently announced Topolo™ line of branded mobile phones. We believe that this approach will allow us to generate more sustainable long-term growth and ultimately deliver increasing shareholder value."

SECOND QUARTER 2011 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net Sales

Net sales for the second quarter of 2011 were US$40.9 million, representing a decrease of 6.8% from US$43.9 million in the second quarter of 2010. The year-over-year decrease was primarily attributable to a decline in sales in the Company's ICM business segment. Sales in the ICM business segment in the second quarter of 2011 were US$9.2 million, down 30.8% from US$13.3 million in the second quarter of 2010 as the Company's largest ICM segment customer had a major inventory problem with mobile phones purchased from another supplier and therefore had to cut back drastically on orders with SinoHub in the second quarter.

Net sales from the electronic component sales and supply chain management services segment (collectively ECSS) for the second quarter of 2011 were US$31.7 million, a year-over-year increase of 3.6% from US$30.6 million in the second quarter of 2010.

The Company will soon start the process of shifting the electronic component procurement (ECP) portion of our ECSS segment, which constitutes most of this segment, to a brokerage model from our current model where we take ownership of components. This will result in much lower revenue (the Company will only be able to record commissions as revenue instead of the full value of the components), but much higher gross margins. This shift is a strategic decision by management to reduce the Company's exposure to electronic component trading, where margins have been in decline due to various industry-wide dynamics, in favor of electronic component brokerage. In addition, the strategic shift will allow the Company to focus on development of the ICM segment and establishment of the Company's recently announced Topolo™ line of branded mobile phones.

Gross Profit and Margin

Gross profit for the quarter was US$4.4 million, down 42.1% from US$7.6 million in the second quarter of 2010. Gross margin for the quarter was 10.8%, down from 17.3% in the second quarter of 2010. Overall gross margin in the second quarter was impacted by the substantially lower gross margin from the ICM segment compared to the preceding quarter as the Company had to lower its price points in order to win new customers to replace revenue which did not materialize in Q2 from a large ICM customer and did substantially more of the lower margin contract motherboard manufacturing business.

Operating Expenses

Operating cost and expenses, including selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses, professional services and other operating income was US$3.0 million, a year-over-year decrease of 6.3% from US$3.2 million in the second quarter of 2010 due primarily to lower business volume and increased efficiency.

Income from Operations

Income from operations for the quarter was US$1.4 million, or 3.4% of sales, as compared to operating income of US$4.4 million, or 10.0% of sales in the second quarter of 2010, as a result of the decline in sales from the ICM segment.

Income Taxes

The Company recorded US$1.0 million of income tax expenses in the second quarter of 2011, versus the US$1.4 million of income tax expenses it recorded in the corresponding period in 2010. The reason for the decrease is that there was less taxable income and taxes are accrued by subsidiary. There was a loss in the manufacturing subsidiary in the second 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$1.0 million, compared to US$3.4 million in the second quarter of 2010. Net margin was 2.4%, as compared to 7.7% in the second quarter of 2010. Net income per basic and diluted shares were both US$0.03, down from US$0.12 per basic and diluted share, in the second quarter of 2010, based on 33.5 million weighted average, basic and diluted shares outstanding.

FIRST HALF 2011 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net Sales

Net sales for six months ended June 30, 2011 were $78.9 million, down 4.4% from $82.5 million in the year-earlier period.

Net sales of the ICM business segment for the six months ended June 30, 2011 increased 30% to $25.7 million from $19.7 million in the year-earlier period.

Net sales of ECSS business segment for the six months ended June 30, 2011 decreased 15% to $53.2 million from $62.8 million but net sales of ICM business segment increased 30% to $25.7 million from $19.7 million in the prior year period.

Gross Profit and Margin

Gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was $12.1 million, compared with $14.7 million for the prior year period. Gross profit margin for six months ended June 30, 2011 decreased to 15.4% from 17.8% in the prior year period.

Operating Expenses

Operating cost and expenses for six months ended June 30, 2011, including selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses, professional services and other operating income, were $6.3 million, or 7.9% of revenues, compared to $5.8 million, or 7.0% of revenues, in the prior year period.

Income from Operations

Income from operations for the six months ended June 30, 2011 was $5.9 million as compared with income from operations of $8.9 million in the prior year period.

Income Taxes

The Company recorded income tax expense of $2.5 million in the six months ended June 30, 2011 as compared with $2.4 million in the prior year period. Income tax estimates in interim periods have varied as the Company has adjusted provisions and accruals in light of actual tax filings.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of June 30, 2011, the Company had US$7.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, an increase from US$4.5 million as of December 31, 2010 resulting primarily from new money raised in the first half of 2011. The Company had working capital of US$71.7 million on June 30, 2011, up from US$57.5 million at the end of 2010, and a current ratio of 1.6 to 1 on June 30, 2011.

As of June 30, 2011, the Company had approximately US$3.0 million available to borrow under its credit facilities.

During the three months ended June 30, 2011, the net amount of cash used in the Company's operating activities was US$12.4 million, compared to US$2.0 million in the same period in 2010, which primarily resulted from the increase in inventories and accounts receivable. For the six months ended June 30, 2010, the net amount of cash used in the Company's operating activities was $2.0 million, which primarily resulted from the increase in accounts receivable and deposits with suppliers.

As of June 30, 2011, inventories were approximately US$31.5 million and accounts receivable were US$51.3 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 increased ECP business.

Full-year 2011 Revenue Guidance

As announced, the Company experienced a significant reduction in revenue in the second quarter due to the fact that its largest ICM segment customer experienced inventory issues with another supplier which caused the customer not to purchase products from the Company during the second quarter. In addition, the Company expects to generate lower ECSS segment revenues moving forward as a result of its strategic decision to shift the electronic component procurement (ECP) portion of its ECSS segment to a brokerage model. Finally, although the Company believes its ICM business model is now proven, it has not been able to expand its customer base as quickly as planned. As a result of the foregoing, the Company now expects to sell approximately 2.5 million mobile phones in 2011, down from its previous estimate of 3 million, and it expects full-year 2011 revenue of approximately $195 million, unchanged as compared to the full-year 2010. This compares to the Company's previously issued guidance of $255 million for the full-year 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. As announced in June 2011, the Company has received an application acceptance notice from the Trademark Office of the State Administration for Industry and Commerce of the PRC for the use of the Topolo™ brand name and logo in China, which SinoHub has selected as the brand name for its self-branded line of mobile phones to be sold in the China. The Company is currently in the process of securing a sales license to sell Topolo™ branded mobile phones in China, and expects to begin initial marketing efforts upon approval of its application for a sales license. While the branded mobile phone market presents strong long-term growth opportunities, the Company is proceeding with this initiative in a prudent and deliberate manner, and does not expect a significant contribution from this business opportunity in the current fiscal year.
