Ever-Glory Reports Second Quarter 2009 Financial Results

新闻来源:AG集&# 发布时间:2019-01-07

-- 2Q09 Gross Margin Increased 320 Basis Points YoY to 21.3% --

NANJING, China, Aug. 6 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Ever-Glory International Group, Inc. (the "Company," "Ever-Glory") (NYSE Amex: EVK), a leading apparel supply chain manager and retailer in China, today reported its financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2009.

During the second quarter 2009, net sales decreased 12.2% to $21.1 million from $24.1 million in the second quarter of 2008. This decrease was primarily attributable to decreased sales orders in our wholesale business. Ever-Glory halted orders with two major customers due to the financial outlook and timely payment ability of those customers.

Retail sales from LA GO GO, the Company's branded retail division, increased to $2.0 million, or 704.5%, compared to $253 thousand in the second quarter of 2008. In the second quarter of 2009, sales from the retail business totaled 9.6% of total sales.

"The second quarter of 2009 proved to be a challenging quarter in our wholesale business," commented Mr. Edward Yihua Kang, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Ever-Glory. "Our wholesale business experienced decreased sales. The majority of this decrease was because Ever-Glory took the proactive step of halting orders with two customers as we couldn't be certain of their ability to maintain timely payments. Our top priority in this difficult economy is to protect Ever-Glory, its financial position and its cash flow. We believe we are taking the appropriate steps to protect our finances and provide Ever-Glory with a more stable customer base.

"Positive momentum continued in our retail business as we recorded over $2.0 million of retail sales in the quarter versus approximately $253,000 last year. In the second quarter of 2009, we opened 28 new LA GO GO stores and as of June 30, 2009 we had 130 LA GO GO stores open. Also encouraging is that our retail sales per square meter per month increased more than 30% compared to the same period of last year."

In the second quarter of 2009, gross profit increased 3.5% to $4.5 million from $4.4 million in the second quarter of 2008. Gross margin increased 320 basis points to 21.3% in the second quarter of 2009, compared to 18.1% in the second quarter of 2008 largely due to increased "Cut-Made-Trim", or CMT, orders, as well as increased leverage in the retail business.

Mr. Kang continued, "We were pleased to experience an increase in gross margins with our increase in CMT product orders. With CMT orders, our buyers supply us with the raw materials and we charge customers only for production. Raw materials supplied by the buyer are not included in the pricing, only production charges are recorded as sales volume. These orders help alleviate cash flow pressures and our overall financial risk is reduced. We are very encouraged that our gross margins increased in spite of lower sales volume."

Selling expenses increased 134.8% to $865 thousand in the second quarter of 2009 from $369 thousand in the second quarter of 2008. This increase was primarily due to increased retail staff, renovation and retail marketing expenses to promote LA GO GO. General and administrative expenses increased 25.6% to $2.3 million from $1.8 million in the second quarter of 2008. The increase was primarily due to additional management, design and marketing staff as a result of our business expansion and increased expenses associated with the development of LA GO GO.

Income from operations for the second quarter of 2009 decreased 37.4% to $1.4 million, or 6.4% of total sales, compared to $2.2 million, or 9.0% of sales, in the second quarter of 2008.

Net income for the second quarter of 2009 decreased 12.9% to $1.2 million or $0.09 per diluted share from $1.3 million, or $0.00 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2008.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of June 30, 2009, the Company had $994 thousand of cash and cash equivalents, compared to $1.4 million at December 31, 2008, Ever-Glory had working capital of approximately $16.9 million at June 30, 2009. The Company had bank loans of $3.2 million as of June 30, 2009.

On June 30, 2009, HSBC bank approved a revolving credit facility amounting to $2.5 million to Perfect-Dream, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Ever-Glory International Group. On July 3, 2009, Ever-Glory Apparel entered into a one-year line of credit agreement for RMB40 million (approximately $5.9 million) with Nanjing Bank.

Business Outlook

For full year 2009, the Company anticipates total net sales of $113 million to $128 million and net income of $5.8 million to $6.5 million. The full year revenue forecast is comprised of $100 million to $110 million in expected wholesale revenue and $13 million to $18 million in expected revenue from retail.

Mr. Kang continued, "Despite the difficult economic environment, we are encouraged with the opportunities both in our wholesale and retail business segments. Our retail business is performing above expectations which we believe will continue through 2009. Opportunities in our wholesale business are robust and we believe we have taken the necessary steps to strengthen our customer base.

"The nature of Ever-Glory's one-stop-service is a competitive advantage that allows us to achieve better results by shortening the time to market, improving product quality control and ultimately achieving higher margins. We place considerable emphasis on innovative and distinctive product designs that stand for exceptional styling and quality for both our wholesale and retail businesses. As we expand our team of professional designers, marketers and R&D team members, we can expand our presence as a major player in the international wholesale and domestic retail apparel market."
