Sutor Technology Group Limited Reports First Quarter Fiscal Year 2013 Financial Results

CHANGSHU, China, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sutor Technology Group Limited (the "Company" or "Sutor") (Nasdaq: SUTR), a leading China-based manufacturer and distributor of high-end fine finished steel products and welded steel pipes used by a variety of downstream applications, today announced its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2013 ended September 30, 2012.

For the first quarter of fiscal 2013, our product sales volume increased 3.1% despite the unfavorable domestic economic conditions as the Chinese GDP grew 7.4%, the slowest rate since the first quarter of 2009.  In an effort to restructure the Chinese economy and promote sustainable economic growth, the Chinese government continued to control housing prices and the pace of infrastructure investments, which reduced demands for various products.  As a result, the impact of our increased sales volume was offset by lower average selling prices ("ASP") of approximately 12.7%. The lower ASP was also due to lower prices for our raw materials. During the first quarter of fiscal 2013, as compared to the same period of fiscal 2012, while revenues generated from domestic sales slightly increased to approximately $106.7 million, revenues generated from international sales decreased to approximately $10.5 million as compared to approximately $24.8 million.  As exports usually have higher gross margin than domestic sales, reduced exports contributed to the overall lower gross margin for the quarter. 

Ms. Lifang Chen, Chairwoman and CEO of Sutor, commented, "Although our products are used in a variety of applications in several major sectors of the economy, we were not immune to the slowdown in the Chinese economy. While many China-based steel companies suffered losses during a period of slow economic growth and the over-capacity in the upstream segment of the steel industry, Sutor, as a fine finished steel manufacturer in the downstream segment of the steel industry, has remained profitable.  More importantly, during the first quarter of fiscal 2013, we generated $7.3 million in cash flow from operations."

Ms. Chen continued, "To reduce the impact of the cyclicality of the steel industry and fully utilize our assets, we have been seeking investment opportunities that require relatively small investments but have the potential to generate high returns." 

Below is a recap of the most recent corporate developments:

  1. We established a joint-venture with a subsidiary of China Railway Materials Company Ltd., a global Fortune 500 company, to provide raw material procurement, logistics and other related services to customers in a variety of industries including the iron and steel industry.  Through this joint-venture, we are also taking advantage of our partner's extensive business network and vast resources to secure our raw materials procurement on more favorable terms and improve our margins.
  2. The cold-rolled steel production line of 500,000-metric tons designed annual production capacity is expected to commence operations in the first half of calendar year 2013.   Once operational, this new line will further strengthen our vertically integrated one-stop solution business model.

Ms. Chen added, "Using the recently established joint-venture as a starting point, we are increasing the service component of our businesses to smooth out operations and enhance profitability."

Ms. Chen concluded, "As the slowdown of China's economy seems to have bottomed out, the country's economy remains strong and it is poised for healthier and sustainable growth in 2013 and beyond.   We believe cyclical industries such as ours have the potential to greatly benefit from an economic recovery, as domestic demand is expected to be the major growth driver going forward.  Sutor is well positioned to take advantage of opportunities that might arise from this economic recovery, and we look forward to reporting our progress in the months to come."

First Quarter Fiscal Year 2013

Revenue. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, revenue was $117.2 million, compared to $130.2 million for the same period last year, a decrease of $13.0 million, or approximately 10.0%. The decrease was mainly attributable to lower ASP. During the quarter, the ASP declined approximately 12.7% as compared with the same period last year due to lower prices for raw materials. In addition, revenue from our steel pipe products was down $11.1 million, or 76.5% primarily due to the timing of the completion of construction projects to which our products are supplied. Although production of our hot-dipped galvanized steel sheets increased approximately 9.5%, the impact was offset by lower ASP as mentioned above.

On a geographic basis, revenue generated from outside of China was $10.5 million, or 9.0% of the total revenue, for the three months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to $24.8 million, or 19.1% of the total revenue, for the same period in 2011. The decrease was mainly resulted from the overall sluggish global economy and appreciating RMB.

Gross profit and gross margin. Gross profit decreased by $2.4 million to $8.5 million in the three months ended September 30, 2012, from $11.0 million in the same period in 2011. Gross margin was 7.3% for the three months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to 8.4% for the same period last year.   The reduced gross margin was primarily due to lower international sales which have higher gross margin than domestic sales, as well as lower sales from our steel pipe segment.  

Total operating expenses. Our total operating expenses decreased by $0.9 million to $4.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, from $5.3 million in the same period in 2011. As a percentage of revenue, our total operating expenses decreased to 3.8% for the three months ended September 30, 2012, from 4.1% in the same period in 2011.

   Selling expenses. For the three months ended September 30, 2012, selling expenses in absolute dollars were slightly below the same period of last year despite the higher sales volume, but as a percentage of revenue increased to 2.0% as compared to 1.8% in the same period of last year, due to lower ASP.

   General and administrative expenses. General and administrative expenses decreased by $0.8 million to $2.1 million, or 1.8% of the total revenue, in the three months ended September 30, 2012, from $2.9 million, or 2.2% of the revenue, in the same period in 2011. The decrease in general and administrative expenses was primarily due to lower allowance for bad account receivables, lower insurance expenses and lower professional consulting expenses of $0.43 million, $0.22 million and $0.11 million, respectively.

Interest expense. Our interest expense increased $1.8 million to $3.5 million in the three months ended September 30, 2012, from $1.7 million in the same period in 2011. As a percentage of revenue, our interest expense was 3.0% for the three months ended September 30, 2012, compared to 1.3% in the same period last year.  The increase in interest expense was mainly attributable to higher discounted interest expenses on bank notes while interest expenses on bank loans remained stable.

Provision for income taxes. Our income tax benefit decreased to $0.4 million in the three months ended September 30, 2012, from $0.9 million of income tax benefit in the same period last year, due to lower utilization of income tax benefits for purchasing certain capital equipment.

Net income. Net income, excluding foreign currency translation adjustment, decreased by $3.2 million, or 63.2%, to $1.8 million in the three months ended September 30, 2012, from $5.0 million in the same period in 2011, as a cumulative result of the above factors.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Our major sources of liquidity are borrowings through short-term bank loans.  Our operating activities provided approximately $7.3 million of cash in the three months ended September 30, 2012.  As of September 30, 2012, we had approximately $122 million in cash and restricted cash and $143 million in bank loans. As of September 30, 2012, we also had an unused line of credit with banks of approximately $32.1 million (RMB 200 million) which entitled us to draw bank loans for general corporate purposes. We foresee sufficient liquidity to carry out normal operations for fiscal 2013.
