(Nasdaq: FFHL) ("Fuwei Films" or the "Company"), a manufacturer and distributor of high-quality BOPET plastic films in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter of 2012 ended September 30, 2012.

Highlights

  • Net sales for the third quarter were RMB88.8 million (US$14.1 million), compared with RMB117.0 million in the same period of 2011.
  • Net loss attributable to the Company for the third quarter was RMB14.9 million (US$2.4 million), compared with net loss attributable to the Company of RMB4.9 million in the same period of 2011.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities during the first nine months was RMB104.7 million (US$16.7 million), compared with net cash provided by operating activities RMB17.1 million in the same period of 2011.
  • Basic and diluted net loss per share for the third quarter was RMB1.14 (US$0.18), compared with basic and diluted net loss per share of RMB0.38 in the same period of 2011.

Mr. Xiaoan He, Chairman and CEO of the Company, said, "We have made significant progress in the construction of our third production line for thick films despite the current market condition. If all goes as planned, we expect to start trial operations of the line by the end of the year or early next year. We have started the R&D for our thick films to be manufactured by this production line including high performance electric insulation film, base film for solar backsheet and TFT-LCD optical films. In addition, we have started marketing these products and contacting target clients."

Third quarter of 2012 Results

Revenues for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012 were RMB88.8 million (US$14.1 million), compared with RMB117.0 million in the same period of 2011, which was a decrease of RMB28.2 million, or 24.1% compared with the third quarter of 2011. The decrease in sales was mainly due to the significant decrease in sales prices compared to the same period in 2011 arising from stronger competition attributing to increased capacity in China and overseas.

Overseas sales during the third quarter ended September 30, 2012 were RMB19.5 million (US$3.1 million,) or 22.0% of total revenues, compared with RMB22.4 million or 19.2% of total revenues in the same period of 2011. The decrease in overseas sales was mainly due to the decrease in sales prices compared with the same period last year. With respect to the percentage of total sales, overseas sales increased due to increased marketing efforts.

The following is a breakdown of domestic versus overseas sales for the three-month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011 (amounts in thousands):

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
