发布时间:2019/02/01  编辑:918


WEIFANG, China, May 14 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Yuhe International, Inc. (Nasdaq: YUII) ("Yuhe" or "the Company"), a leading supplier of day-old chickens raised for meat production, or broilers, in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today announced financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2010.

First Quarter 2010 Highlights and Recent Events

-- Net revenue increased 7.7% to $11.8 大发体育娱乐在线million year over year

-- Sales volume grew 11% to 25.6 million birds year over year

-- Gross profit was $3.9 million with gross margin of 33.2%

-- Operating income was $3.0 million, down 7.9% year over year

-- Net income increased 0.4% to $2.9 million, or $0.18 per fully diluted

share

"While the first quarter is traditionally one of our slowest in terms of sales due to the cold weather and the Chinese Spring Festival, we saw an uptick in sales volume of our day old broilers," commented Mr. Zhentao Gao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yuhe International. "At the same time, gross margin was impacted by slightly lower selling prices and higher feed costs. We expect our financial performance to accelerate in the second half of the year when the approximate 176,000 parent breeders we recently purchased mature and begin contributing to production capacity."

First Quarter 2010 Results

Net revenue for the first quarter of 2010 increased 7.7% to $11.8 million, compared to $10.9 million for the same period last year. The increase was mainly driven by the 10.8% gain in sales volume of day-old broilers to 25.6 million from 23.1 million in the comparable period last year. The sales volume increase was slightly offset by the 2.7% decrease in the average selling price per day-old broiler to RMB 2.91 from RMB 2.99 in the same quarter of 2009. Of net revenue, $10.9 million, or 92.6%, was generated from sales of day-old broilers.

Gross profit decreased 4.0% year over year to $3.9 million, compared to $4.1 million in the same period last year. Gross profit margin was 33.2%, compared to 37.2% in the same quarter last year. The decrease in gross profit margin is attributable to the 27.0% increase in the price of corn, a major ingredient in chicken feed.

Operating income decreased 7.9% to $3.0 million, compared to $3.2 million in the same period of 2009. Operating margin was 25.3%, compared to 29.55% in the same quarter of 2009.

Net income increased 0.4% to $2.93 million, compared to $2.91 million in the same period last year. Fully diluted earnings per share were $0.18, compared to $0.19 in comparable period of 2009. For the first quarter of 2010, there were 16.1 million fully diluted weighted shares outstanding versus 15.7 million fully diluted weighted shares outstanding in the same period of the prior year.

Financial Condition

As of March 31, 2010, the Company held $15.7 million in cash and cash equivalents, as compared to $14.0 million at year-end 2009. Working capital was $11.1 million with a 1.8 to 1 current ratio. The Company had $58.4 million in shareholders' equity compared to $55.3 million at the year-end 2009. Yuhe generated $2.0 million in operating cash flow in the first quarter of 2010.

2010 Outlook

The Company's management expects sales volume and net income to rise throughout the remainder of 2010. Yuhe's strongest results will occur in the second half of the year, given the seasonality of the business and the fact that the new parent breeders that were purchased in early 2010 will begin to generate revenue in the fourth quarter of 2010. Therefore, management

re-affirms its previously issued guidance for 2010 of production totaling 150 million day-old broilers and net income of approximately $17 million.

Recent Events

In April 2010, Yuhe renegotiated approximately $8.2 million of its

long-term bank loans at a more favorable fixed interest rate of 7.56%. The terms of these loans were extended to the first quarter of 2013.

In May 2010, Ernst & Young (China) Advisory Limited completed its review of the Company's payment procedures at the request of Yuhe's Audit Committee. The review concluded the following: (1) Yuhe International has cleared all the inter-company balances with related parties; (2) There were no payments between Yuhe International and its related parties in the period of March 1, 2010 to March 31, 2010; and (3) No material exceptions were noted during the review of the payment procedures. The Board of Directors and Audit Committee have initiated more stringent internal controls over payment procedures. Additional information is available in the Company's Form 10-Q filed with the SEC on May 14, 2010.

Yuhe will present at the Second Annual China Rising Investment Conference presented by CCG Investor Relations in New York on May 17, 2010. For more information, please visit http://www.chinarisingconference.com .
