Recent Business Highlights

  • On December 16, 2010, ZST Digital Networks' commercial GPS tracking products were awarded official certification by the China Communications Product Certification Center ("CCPC") of the Ministry of Transport of the PRC. While the GPS vehicle tracking product market has been in development in China for over a decade, various government ministries have only recently begun to issue official quality standards and guidelines.  In August 2010, the Ministry of Transport, through the CCPC, initiated a certification program for GPS tracking products, and a number of manufacturers have applied for certification. To the best of the Company's knowledge, ZST Digital is the first company to date to have received official certification for its commercial GPS tracking products following a successful product inspection, testing, and review process by the CCPC.
  • On January 28, 2011, the Company announced that as a part of its ongoing expansion strategy, the Company entered into a purchase agreement for two floors of an office building located near its existing offices in Zhengzhou City, China. The purchased area is approximately 2,880 square meters, for a total purchase price of approximately US$7.8 million.  Previously, in March 2010, the Company agreed to purchase an additional office space of approximately 2,100 square meters in the same building for approximately $1.7 million.  In addition to providing additional workspace and growth capacity, the new office space purchase puts a significant tangible asset on ZST's balance sheet.
  • On February 24, 2011, the Company announced that it had entered into an agreement with the Road Transportation Department of Shangqiu City, a city with over eight million residents in eastern Henan Province, to develop a city-wide GPS tracking platform for commercial vehicles. The platform will utilize ZST Digital's commercial GPS tracking technology and will link registered vehicles to the national and provincial transportation departments.  In addition, ZST Digital will provide ongoing maintenance and support of the platform. Management estimates the total investment in the project will amount to RMB2.0 million (approximately US$0.3 million)(1).  The Company believes that the agreement could generate approximately RMB40-50 million (approximately US$6.1-7.6 million) in revenue per year upon successful completion of the platform, and it expects to begin generating revenue from this project in the second quarter of fiscal 2011.  

(1) The amount in RMB was translated into U.S. Dollars using the spot rate of US$1 = RMB6.566 for February 24, 2011.

Mr. Zhong Bo, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ZST, commented, "I am pleased to report a strong set of results exceeding our guidance for the fourth quarter and full year.  Our results were supported by continued growth across our three main product lines, IPTV set-top boxes, commercial GPS products and services and cable TV network equipment.  On a full year basis, these segments contributed to approximately 47%, 20% and 33% of revenue, respectively, providing a diverse and stable revenue base.  We are especially pleased with the rapid progress of our GPS division, which has quickly ramped up in a little over a year to become a major contributor to both our top- and bottom-line.  The success of this segment demonstrates our strong execution ability and the growing market demand for our commercial GPS products and services.  We believe that the demand in Henan Province for our vehicle tracking and fleet management systems utilizing GPS technologies will continue to grow, as demonstrated by our recent agreement with Shangqiu City. As a result, we expect this segment will continue to be our primary growth driver moving forward.

"Our IPTV set-top box and cable TV network equipment segments also performed well, with sales increasing year-over-year.  Looking ahead, we remain confident in the underlying growth trends in our end markets, and we believe we are well positioned to maintain our strong growth trajectory in the year ahead.  As such, we will continue to capitalize on the favorable trends in our end markets by executing our strategy to increase sales across our product and service lines, especially within the commercial GPS tracking market, while further developing our brand and technology platform."    

Mr. John Chen, Chief Financial Officer of ZST, commented, "Our strong financial results were driven by the rapid growth of our  GPS products and services and the continued growth in our core IPTV market and cable TV equipment. Moreover, the growth in sales of our high margin GPS products and services and Standard Definition IPTV set-top boxes has helped to drive our bottom-line, resulting in an 117% year-over-year increase in net income for the full year. In addition, we continue to maintain a strict focus on cost controls to maximize the efficiency of our operations.  We believe our impressive financial results and healthy balance sheet position us well to continue to deliver sustained growth in the year ahead."

Fourth Quarter (unaudited) and Fiscal Year 2010 Financial Highlights

Revenue

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2010 was US$46.0 million, representing an increase of 19% from US$38.5 million in the third quarter of 2010, and an increase of 51% from US$30.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. The primary reason for the increase in revenue during the quarter was growth in the GPS-related business, including revenue from sales of GPS devices and related service.

Revenue for fiscal 2010 increased 34% to US$134.6 million from US$100.4 million in fiscal 2009. This significant increase in revenue was contributed mainly by GPS-related business, with revenue from sales of GPS devices and related services amounting to $27.5 million in fiscal year 2010, compared to $3.9 million in fiscal 2009, since we only launched the GPS-related business in the fourth quarter of 2009.

Gross Profit and Gross Profit Margin

Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2010 was US$12.4 million, representing a 23% sequential increase and a 113% year-over-year increase. Gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of 2010 was 27%, up from 19% in the fourth quarter of 2009.

Gross profit increased by 104% to US$34.8 million for fiscal 2010, from US$17.1 million in fiscal 2009, primarily driven by growth in GPS product sales, which only began in the fourth quarter of 2009. Gross margin for fiscal 2010 was 26%, up from 17% in fiscal 2009. The increase in gross margin on sales of products was driven mainly by sales of Standard Definition set-top boxes, which had a gross margin of 39.4% during the year of 2010. Although the selling price of Standard Definition products is much lower than the selling price for High Definition products, the Standard Definition production cost is so much lower that gross margin still increased.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses for the fourth quarter of 2010 were US$1.4 million, representing a decrease of 13% from US$1.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. For fiscal 2010, total operating expenses increased 58% to US$4.8 million from US$3.1 million in fiscal 2009. This increase in operating expenses was primarily a result of the overall growth in our revenue base.

General and administrative expenses (G&A) for the fourth quarter 2010 were US$1.2 million, up 6% from US$1.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. The rise in G&A expenses was mainly attributable to the Company's expanded operations and revenue base as well as the increasing role of GPS sales in our overall mix. For fiscal 2010, G&A expenses increased 104.4% to US$3.7 million from US$1.8 million in fiscal 2009.

Research and development expenses (R&D) for the fourth quarter were US$30,000, compared to US$112,000 for the fourth quarter of 2009. For fiscal 2010, R&D expenses were US$399,000, compared to US$221,000 in fiscal 2009. Research and development expenses consist mainly of salaries of the research and development department.

Income Tax

Income tax expense for the fourth quarter of 2010 was US$2.5 million, compared to US$1.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. This increase was mainly due to an increased revenue base.

Income tax expense for fiscal 2010 was US$8.0 million, compared to US$4.1 million for fiscal 2009. This increase was mainly due to the increase of income before tax, primarily driven by the increase in sales revenue and increased gross margin.

Income from Operations, Net Income and EPS

Income from operations was US$11.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2010, representing a sequential increase of 24% compared to an operating income of US$8.8 million in the third quarter of 2010, and an increase of 161% compared to operating income of US$4.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. For fiscal 2010, income from operations rose 114% to US$30.0 million, from US$14.0 million in fiscal 2009.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2010 was US$8.5 million, a sequential increase of 33% from US$6.4 million in the third quarter of 2010 and a year-over-year increase of 176% from US$3.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. Net margin was 18.5% for the fourth quarter of 2010, up from 16.6% in the third quarter of 2010 and up from 10.1% in the fourth quarter of 2009. For fiscal 2010, net income increased 117% to US$22.1 million, from US$10.2 million for fiscal 2009. Net income margin increased to 16.4% for fiscal 2010, as compared to 10.1% in fiscal 2009.

Diluted net income per share was US$0.73 in the fourth quarter 2010, compared to US$0.28 for the fourth quarter of 2009. For fiscal 2010, diluted net income per share was US$1.90, compared to US$1.16 for fiscal 2009.

Balance Sheet

Cash and cash equivalents totaled to US$23.7 million as of December 31, 2010, primarily attributable to operating activities, especially net income earned in 2010.

As of December 31, 2010, total trade receivables were US$33.5 million, an increase of 35% from US$24.9 million as of December 31, 2009, primarily due to increased revenue base.

Full Year 2011 Outlook - For the full year 2011, the Company estimates that revenues will range between US$160 million and US$175 million, and net income will range between US$28 million and US$30 million. This represents the Company's current and preliminary view, which is subject to change.
