时间:2018-10-05 作者:admin

Fiscal 2006 Revenues Increased 50 % to $12.4 Million

QINGDAO, April 10 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sinoenergy Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: SNEN), ("Sinoenergy"), a manufacturer of compressed natural gas (CNG) vehicle and gas station equipment and a designer, developer and operator of CNG filling stations in China, today announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2006.

Fiscal 2006 Highlights

-- Revenue increased 50% to $12.4 million

-- Gross Profit increased 47% to $6.5 million, reflecting a gross margin

of 52.3%

-- Income from operations increased 13% to $4.2 million.

-- Net income increased 40% to $3.4 million

-- Basic earnings per share of common stock increased from $0.17 to $0.24

and diluted earnings per share increased from $0.17 to $0.18

Fourth Quarter 2006 Highlights (un-audited)

-- Revenue was $2.6 million

-- Gross profit was $1.7 million

-- Net income was $1.1million, or $0.08 of earning per common stock or

$0.04 of earning per diluted share.

Commenting on the results, Mr. Bo Huang, CEO of Sinoenergy, said: "2006 was a very successful year for Sinoenergy. Our sales reached record highs, as we benefited from increased demand for our non-standard pressure container products and CNG filing station construction services. In addition, Sinoenergy successfully became a publicly traded company in the U.S. which was an important milestone, as it enabled us to raise additional capital through the exercise of warrants during the first quarter of 2007 which we intend to use to finance our growth, bringing us one step closer to our goal of becoming a leading participant in the fast growing clean burning CNG-powered vehicle market in China."

2006 Full-Year Results

Net revenue for year 2006, was approximately $12.4 million, a 50% increase over net revenue of $8.2 million for the comparable year 2005.

Cost of revenues for year 2006 was approximately $5.9 million, compared with approximately $3.8 million for 2005. The gross margin for year 2006 was 52%, nearly the same with 54% for the year 2005.

Operating expenses were $2.3 million for year 2006, compared to $0.7 million for year 2005. The increase was primarily due to the Company's efforts to develop its new CNG retail and wholesale business, as well as higher legal and professional fees resulting from Sinoenergy's status as a public company, the amortization of the cost of the land use rights, which began in 2006.

Income from operations was approximately $4.2 million, which was approximately 34% of revenue for 2006 compared with approximately $3.7 million, representing approximately 45% of revenue in 2005.

Sinogas, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sinoenergy, has an exemption from corporate income tax for 2006 and 2007, which will be followed by a 50% corporate tax exemption for the subsequent three years (from 2008 to 2010). As a result, in accordance with US GAAP, the Company has recorded $ 1.1 million income tax credit in 2006.

Net income for 2006 was $3.4 million or $0.24 per share (basic) and $0.18 per share (diluted), versus net income of $2.5 million, or $0.17 per share (basic and diluted) 2005.

During 2006, we incurred a one-time non-cash expense of $1.6 million resulting from the issuance of convertible notes as part of our June 2006 private placement of securities. Pro forma net income, determined by adding this charge to net income, would have been $5.0 million, or $0.26 per diluted share. This pro-forma net income is not a GAAP measurement; however, we feel that it provides information relating to our operations in the normal course of business, without the deduction required under GAAP for charges which relate to our financing rather than to our operations, and is non-recurring in nature. A reconciliation of the pro-forma net income with GAAP net income is provided below.

Fourth Quarter 2006 Results (un-audited)

For the quarter ended December 31, 2006, total revenue was $2.6 million, down 53% from $5.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2005. This decline in revenue resulted from a large CNG filing station contract recorded in the fourth quarter of 2005, skewing the revenue figures for comparison.

Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2006 was $1.7 million, a 47% decline from the gross profit I the fourth quarter of 2005. Gross margin was 65% in the fourth quarter of 2006, compared to 58% in the fourth quarter of 2005. The 7% increase in gross profit and margin was reflected the high gross margin on the CNG filing station contract in the fourth quarter of 2006.

Operating expenses in the fourth quarter of 2006 were about $0.7 million, an increase of $0.5 million year-over-year, resulting from higher general and administrative expenses related with new CNG wholesale and retail business development, as well as higher advisory, legal and auditing fees associated with the Company's status as a public company in the fourth quarter of 2006.

Operating income was about $996,000, or 38% of revenue, down 66% from $2.9 million, or 54 % of revenue, in the fourth quarter of 2005.

Net income was $1.1million in the fourth quarter of 2006, down from $1.9 million in the same period of 2005. Earnings per common share for the fourth quarter of 2006 were $0.08 and earnings per diluted shares were $0.04 compared with earnings per share of $0.13 (basic and diluted) in the fourth quarter of 2005.

Financial Condition

At December 31, 2006, Sinoenergy had approximately $588,000 in cash, working capital of $304,000. Net cash provided by operating activities was $2.7 million during the year 2006, compared to $2.6 million in 2005.

Total liabilities, including short-term bank loans and other short-term credit facilities, stood at $11.1 million at year end. Stockholders' equity totalled $16.0 million at the end of 2006, compared to $7.5 million stockholders' equity at the end of 2005. The debt to equity ratio was 0.7 at year end of 2006.

During the first quarter of 2007, the Company issued 7,207,384 shares of common stock upon the exercise of warrants and conversion of preferred shares by stockholders. The Company received $5,988,178 in net proceeds from the warrant exercise. The Company did not receive any proceeds from the conversion of the preferred stock.
