新闻来源:AG88 发布时间:2018-10-06

BEIJING, May 15 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sino Gas International Holdings, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: SGAS.OB) (“Sino Gas” or the “Company”), a leading developer of natural gas distribution systems in small- and medium-sized cities, as well as a distributor of natural gas to residential, commercial and industrial customers in China, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended on March 31, 大发官方娱乐2007.

First Quarter 2007 Highlights

-- Revenue reached $2.4 million, up 272% from the first quarter of 2006;

-- Gross profits reached $0.6 million, up 336% from the first quarter of

2006;

-- Operating income totaled $103,025, up 822% from the first quarter of

2006;

-- Net income rose to $115,383, up 1043% from $10,092 in the first quarter

of 2006 ;

-- Sales of natural gas totaled 6.2 million m3, up 162% from the first

quarter of 2006;

-- Number of new households connected in the first quarter of 2007 was

2,250, up 1790 households from the first quarter of 2006.

“Our first quarter result was greatly enhanced by the fact that we have completed the acquisition of Chenguang and picked up the pace in the development of new projects using the net proceeds from our private financing transactions”, commented Mr. Yu-Chuan Liu, President and CEO of the Company. “Going forward in 2007, we remain confident in our business plan and the opportunities ahead for growing our business profitably.”

First Quarter 2007 Results

Revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2007 increased 272% over the same period in 2006 to $2.4 million, driven by connection fees from 2,250 new households as well as a substantial increase in natural gas sales to 6.2 million cubic meters, up 162% over the same period in 2006. Connection fees accounted for 25% of revenues this quarter, with natural gas sales accounting for the balance.

Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2007 increased 336% from the same period last year to $600,597, or 25% of revenues compared to $137,909, or 21% of revenues in the first quarter of 2006. This increase in gross profit and margin resulted from the overall increase in net sales. Gross margin in the quarter was down relative to the average obtained over the twelve months ended December 31, 2006 due to the composition of revenues in the quarter being skewed towards natural gas sales, which attract much lower margins than connection fees.

Selling, general and administrative expenses in the first quarter of 2007 were up 293% to $497,572 or 20% of revenue, versus 126,733 or 19% of revenue, in the comparable period last year. The increase in operating expenses in the quarter relative to the same period last year was in line with the overall growth in net revenues.

Operating income for the three months ending March 31, 2007 increased 822% to $103,025, or 4% of sales, compared to $11,176 or 2% of sales for the same period of 2006.

Net income during the quarter increased 1043% year-over-year to $115,383, up from $10,092 in the first quarter of 2006.

Financial Condition

At March 31, 2007, the Company had $2.3 million in total cash and short-term investments, $1.1 million in working capital, and no debt. Cash flow from operations for first quarter 2007 totaled $3.5 million, up from $0.6 million in the same period last year. Capital expenditures totaled $4.7 million for the quarter. Shareholders’ equity stood at $25.7 million, compared to $12.6 million the end of the first quarter in 2006.

Business Outlook

The Company believes that the natural gas market is at a very early stage of its development, representing only 3% China’s current energy consumption, compared to a world average of 24%. The Chinese government is actively encouraging the development of the natural gas industry in order to take advantage of China’s substantial gas reserves, while diversifying energy sources and improving the environment. As a result, industry analysts forecast 270 cities in China to be supplied by natural gas in 2010, compared to 140 in 2005.

“We remain confident we have the right strategy and management team to take our business to the next level. We plan to continue to focus on acquiring small- and mid-sized cities through internal development or acquisitions while further penetrating our existing markets. We expect both connection fees and the percentage of connection fees to sales to increase,” added Mr. Liu. “And we expect to add 30,000-40,000 new household users and two industrial users as well as to sell a total of 21 million m3 of natural gas during the year, which we estimate will drive net income growth of 30% in 2007, compared to 2006.”

Recent Events

In January 2007, the Company entered into a stock purchase agreement to acquire all the capital stock of Beijing Chenguang Gas Co., Ltd., a privately held natural gas distribution business in Beijing, China for approximately $3.35 million in cash. This transaction included the exclusive concession rights to operate seven gas distribution systems and added 25,202 residential customers and four industrial projects to Sino Gas’s distribution system. This transaction was completed on 18th of February 2007.
