Fushi Copperweld Reports First Quarter 2010 Financial Result

新闻来源:K8 发布时间:2019-01-31

DALIAN, China, May 4 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Fushi Copperweld, Inc. (Nasdaq: FSIN), the leading global manufacturer and innovator of copper-clad bimetallic wire used in a variety of telecommunication, utility, transportation and other electrical applications, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010.

First Quarter Highlights

-- GAAP net income increased 137.7% to $7.4M, or $0.21 per diluted share

-- Adjusted net income increased 148.3% to $10.2M, or $0.29 per diluted

share

-- Metric tons shipped at Dalian location increased 13.3% compared to

first quarter 2009

-- Gross profit increased 99.4% to $17.8 million, or 29.9% of revenues

-- Cash position at quarter end remains strong at $78.5 million

Revenues for the first quarter of 2010 increased 68.9% to $59.5 million, up from $35.3 million in the prior year quarter. The $24.2 million increase in net sales was primarily driven by a 48.2% increase in average selling price and a 14.0% increase in volumes, as measured by metric tons of copper-clad products sold compared to the first quarter of 2009. Outside of organic growth, acquisitions contributed $4.3 million during the quarter. Volume at the Company's Dalian and Fayetteville cladding facilities increased 13.3% and 14.9%, respectively, compared to the first quarter 2009.

Gross profit in the first quarter increased 99.4% year-over-year to $17.8 million from $8.9 million a year ago. Consolidated gross margin increased to 29.9% from 25.4% in the prior year period, driven by stronger demand, higher capacity utilization, and improved product mix. Gross margin for the Company's Dalian facility increased to 35.3% from 32.9%, while gross margin for the Company's Fayetteville, TN facility improved substantially to 12.4%, up from 2.4% in the prior year quarter.

Operating expenses in the first quarter increased slightly to $5.0 million, compared to $4.3 million in the prior year's quarter. This increase was due to slightly higher G&A costs resulting from increased volumes. On a percentage basis, operating expenses decreased 371 basis points to 8.4% of revenues, down from 12.1% in the first quarter of 2009.

During the quarter, the Company successfully completed a secondary offering of 7.5 million shares of common stock, generating net proceeds of over $55 million. A portion of these proceeds was used to retire the Company's long-term debt, and the one-time loss in retiring this debt totaled $2.4 million ($1.6 million net of tax), or $0.07 per diluted share ($0.04 net of tax). Simultaneously, the Company terminated the cross currency interest rate swap, a derivative the Company used as a hedging instrument related to this long-term debt, and as a result recognized a realized loss of $6.7 million ($4.4 million net of tax), or $0.19 per diluted share ($0.12 net of tax) during the period. The termination of this swap enabled the Company to mitigate the risk of an appreciation in the renminbi. Lastly, during the first quarter the Company completed its previously announced acquisition of Dalian Jinchuan and recognized a one-time non-cash gain of $3.3 million, or $0.09 per diluted share as the fair market value of Dalian Jinchuan's assets exceeded the purchase price.

On a GAAP basis, net income for the 2010 first quarter was $7.4 million, or $0.21 per diluted share. This compares with net income of $3.1 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2009. GAAP results included the one-time items discussed above, as well as: (1) $0.2 million in stock based compensation, and (2) $3.1 million income tax benefit on stock based compensation and on one-time items associated with losses from the debt extinguishment and swap settlement.

Excluding all non-cash gains and expenses and one-time, non-recurring losses, adjusted net income was $10.2 million or $0.29 per diluted share in the first quarter of 2010, compared to adjusted net income of $4.1 million or $0.15 per diluted share, in the prior year first quarter.

During the quarter, the Company generated $7.9 million of cash flow from operations, an $8.9 million increase over the same period in the previous year. The Company's cash position at the end of the first quarter was $78.5 million while the Company's long-term debt position was $0.1 million, compared to debt of $32.7 million at December 31, 2009. Accounts receivables at March 31, 2010 were $57.0 million, compared to $67.3 million on December 31, 2009, a decrease of 15.3%.

Mr. Joe Longever, co-Chief Executive Officer of Fushi Copperweld, commented, "We are pleased to have exceeded our guidance for the quarter, driven by higher volumes throughout our global locations, particularly in China, despite it being a traditionally slower quarter for our business. In addition, the combination of improving global demand and the cost reduction actions we have taken enabled our facility in Fayetteville to contribute to our success, both from a revenue as well as an earnings perspective during the quarter, as we expected. We look forward to this trend continuing as infrastructure investment becomes increasingly important to countries around the world and the global economic climate continues to improve."

Mr. Longever continued, "We are encouraged by prospects in our markets, as the ongoing build-out of telecommunication and electrical utility infrastructure across China and other opportunities globally continue to drive sales volume increases. During the quarter we achieved a number of milestones that combined to improve our profitability, get us closer to our customers, broaden our product line and enhance our financial flexibility going forward. All of these serve to reinforce our strategic goal of providing a highly engineered bimetallic wire as an alternative to solid copper at a compelling price and with a faster turnaround time. We see a number of opportunities for continued growth across all our markets and geographies and look forward to capitalizing on these in 2010 and beyond."

Outlook

Based on current business trends, the Company expects adjusted fully diluted earnings per share to be between $0.32 and $0.34 for the second quarter and to be between $1.23 and $1.28 for the 2010 full-year period, based on estimated weighted average diluted share counts of 37.9 million and 37.2 million, for the 2010 second quarter and full-year periods, respectively. This expectation is based on the assumption that the effective tax rate at the consolidated level will be 13% for the remainder of 2010. The Company expects profitability in subsequent quarters to improve due to higher seasonal revenue levels, continued increases in capacity utilization at the Fayetteville facility as a result of improving end market demand, and continued incentives from China's ongoing infrastructure buildout.

Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

Our net income was materially impacted by certain non-cash expenses and gains and one-time events. To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, we use EPS as adjusted for the impact of one-time non-cash loss related to the extinguishment of the long-term debt, realized one-time loss related to the extinguishment of the derivative hedging instrument and the one-time non-cash gain on acquisition. These Company-defined adjusted measures are being provided because management believes they are useful in analyzing the underlying operating performance of the business. These measures may be inconsistent with similar measures presented by other companies and should only be used in conjunction with our results reported according to accounting principles generally accepted in the United States. A reconciliation of earnings per share as reported and operating income as reported to adjusted non-GAAP earnings per share and adjusted non-GAAP operating income follows.
