SinoHub, Inc. Announces 2011 Third Quarter Financial Results

2011-11-14 21:05 1337

SHENZHEN, China, November 14, 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 third quarter ended September 30, 2011.

THIRD QUARTER 2011 FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

  • Total net sales declined year-over-year to US$52.0 million in the third quarter of 2011 compared to US$55.8 million in the third quarter of 2010.

  • Gross profit was US$6.3 million compared to US$10.2 million in the same quarter in 2010. Gross margin was 12.1% compared to 18.3% in the third quarter of 2010.

  • Cash used in operations was US$17.6 million, compared with US$4.7 million in the third quarter of 2010.

  • Net income was US$2.6 million, down from US$6.0 million in the third quarter of 2010.

  • Net income per basic and diluted share were both US$0.08, down from US$0.21 per basic and diluted share, in the third quarter of 2010.

BUSINESS HIGHLIGHTS:

Commenting on the results, SinoHub's CEO, Mr. Harry Cochran said, "Our results for the third quarter were largely in line with our expectations, as we continued to be impacted by the decline in ICM revenue following the cut back in orders from a major customer in the second quarter. While we have not yet replaced all of the revenue lost from this key customer, our results have stabilized thanks to our progress on the business development front. In fact, we have successfully broadened our base of smaller ICM customers placing higher margin orders, which led to an improvement in our ICM gross profit margin from the low in the previous quarter. We have also made significant inroads with a number of large developing market mobile phone operators. For example, Philippine Long Distance Telephone Company (PLDT), owners of Smart Communications, Inc, the leading wireless services provider in the Philippines, recently added SinoHub to their List of Accredited Suppliers for Mobile Phones (Private label) for a three year period. This marks a significant step in the sales process with one of the largest mobile phone operators in Southeast Asia, and while we have not yet secured any orders, we are working hard to move this relationship to the order phase.

"The process to shift the electronic component sales part of our ECSS segment to a brokerage model is ongoing, and we expect to make further progress here in the fourth quarter of 2011. This transition is necessary as we continue to focus our resources on developing our ICM business segment.

"Looking ahead, we remain committed to our long-term strategy to deepen penetration of the mobile device market in developing nations and in other international markets, including North and South America. We believe that our joint design process and our track record of delivering high quality phones with minimal lead times and flexible order quantities continue to provide us with clear competitive advantages. While we may continue to face near-term pressure in the short term, we remain confident that our rate of growth in the ICM business segment will rebound in the year ahead."

Lei Xia, President of SinoHub, added, "We are delighted to become an accredited supplier to PLDT after a thorough due diligence process run by Dun & Bradstreet on their behalf. With forty-eight million subscribers, Smart Communications has a dominant position in their market, and we look forward to establishing a strong long-term relationship with them."

THIRD QUARTER 2011 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net Sales

Net sales for the third quarter of 2011 were US$52.0 million, representing a decrease of 7.3% from US$55.8 million in the third 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 third quarter of 2011 were US$16.9 million, down 11.4% from US$19.0 million in the third quarter of 2010 as the Company was not successful in replacing all of the revenue that was lost when a major customer had to drastically cut back on orders with SinoHub starting in the second quarter of 2011 due to inventory problems at the customer.

Net sales from the electronic component sales and supply chain management services segment (collectively ECSS) for the third quarter of 2011 were US$35.1 million, a year-over-year decrease of 4.4% from US$36.7 million in the third quarter of 2010. The primary reason for the decrease in the ECSS business segment was the increasing maturity of the 2G market and the lack of clear leadership in the 3G market. This contrasts with the plentiful arbitrage opportunities that existed in the past in the 2G market when Mediatek had a dominant position and the technology was changing very rapidly.

The Company has begun the process of shifting the electronic component sales (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 should 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.

Gross Profit and Margin

Gross profit for the quarter was US$6.3 million, down 61.9% from US$10.2 million in the third quarter of 2010. Gross margin for the quarter was 12.1%, down from 18.3% in the third quarter of 2010. However, in the three months ended September 30, 2011, gross margins in ICM recovered to 16.2% from the low level in the three months ended June 30, 2011 as the Company's sales initiatives to broaden our base of ICM customers started to pay off.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses, including selling, general and administrative (SG&A) expenses, professional services and other operating income was US$2.7 million, unchanged from US$2.7 million in the third quarter of 2010.

Income from Operations

Income from operations for the quarter was US$3.6 million, or 6.9% of sales, as compared to operating income of US$7.5 million, or 13.4% of sales in the third quarter of 2010.

Income Taxes

The Company recorded US$1.1 million of income tax expenses in the third quarter of 2011, versus the US$1.9 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. However, because taxes are calculated on a subsidiary level, resulting in losses in one subsidiary not offsetting gains in another for tax purposes, the decrease is not proportional to the decrease in income, which is calculated on a consolidated basis.

Net Income

Net income attributable to SinoHub's shareholders was US$2.6 million, compared to US$6.0 million in the third quarter of 2010. Net margin was 5.0%, as compared to 10.8% in the third quarter of 2010. Net income per basic and diluted shares were both US$0.08, down from US$0.21 per basic and diluted share, in the third quarter of 2010, based on 33.5 million weighted average, basic and diluted shares outstanding.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of September 30, 2011, the Company had US$7.0 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$75.5 million on September 30, 2011, up from US$57.5 million at the end of 2010, and a current ratio of 1.6 to 1 on September 30, 2011.

As of September 30, 2011, the Company had approximately US$7.0 million available to borrow under its credit facilities.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2011, the net amount of cash used in the Company's operating activities was US$17.6 million, compared to US$4.7 in the same period in 2010, which was mainly attributable to the increase in inventories and accounts receivable.

As of September 30, 2011, inventories were approximately US$37.1 million and accounts receivable were US$60.2 million, compared to approximately US$14.6 million and US$45.7 million on December 31, 2010, respectively. The increase in inventory was related to our ICM business and the increase in accounts receivable resulted from lower collections in ECP in the quarter caused by a change in policy by the Chinese banks which had the effect of lowering credit availability for our customers.

Full-year 2011 Revenue Guidance

The Company reiterates its sales outlook of approximately 2.5 million mobile phones in 2011, and its full-year 2011 revenue guidance of approximately $195 million. The forecasts reflect the Company's current and preliminary view, which is subject to change.

BUSINESS OUTLOOK

SinoHub is focused on expanding our ICM business segment by gaining new customers in Southeast Asia where we started and by entering new markets (primarily North and South America). In addition we have begun a strategic initiative to develop our own mobile phone brand in China, the world's largest mobile phone market. As announced in June 2011, the Company 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 toward the end of Q1 2012.
