China Yuchai International Announces Unaudited Third Quarter 2015 Financial Results

SINGAPORE, Nov. 10, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE: CYD) ("China Yuchai" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer and distributor of engines for on-road and off-road applications in China through its main operating subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited ("GYMCL"), announced today its unaudited consolidated financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2015.

Financial Highlights for the Third Quarter of 2015

  • Net revenue declined to RMB 3.0 billion (US$ 472.4 million) compared with RMB 3.8 billion in the third quarter of 2014;
  • Gross profit was RMB 586.8 million (US$ 92.3 million), with a gross margin of 19.5% compared with RMB 715.7 million and a gross margin of 19.1% in the third quarter of 2014;
  • Operating profit decreased to RMB 74.2 million (US$ 11.7 million) compared with RMB 227.6 million in the third quarter of 2014;
  • Net earnings attributable to China Yuchai's shareholders decreased to RMB 0.35 million (US$ 0.05 million) from RMB 143.8 million;
  • Earnings per share were RMB 0.01 (US 0.14 cents) compared with RMB 3.77 in the third quarter of 2014;
  • Total number of engines sold was 84,170 units compared with 111,023 units in the third quarter of 2014.

Net revenue for the third quarter of 2015 was RMB 3.0 billion (US$ 472.4 million) compared with RMB 3.8 billion in the third quarter of 2014.  

The total number of engines sold during the third quarter of 2015 was 84,170 units compared with 111,023 units in the same quarter a year ago, representing a decrease of 24.2%. As reported by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers ("CAAM"), in the third quarter of 2015, sales of commercial vehicles (excluding gasoline-powered vehicles)  declined by 5.5%. The market remained weak in the heavy-duty and medium-duty truck and medium-duty bus segments. 

Gross profit was RMB 586.8 million (US$ 92.3 million) compared with RMB 715.7 million in the same quarter of 2014. The gross profit decline was mainly attributable to lower unit sales in the third quarter of 2015 compared with the same quarter last year. Gross margin was 19.5% in the third quarter of 2015 compared with 19.1% in the same quarter last year.

Other operating loss was RMB 24.5 million (US$ 3.8 million), compared with other operating income of RMB 39.6 million in the same quarter last year. This decrease was mainly due to a loss of RMB 12.5 million from the disposal of GYMCL's entire shareholding interest in Xiamen Yuchai Diesel Engines Co., Ltd. ("Xiamen Factory") and foreign exchange revaluation losses.  In 2014, the Company recorded a foreign revaluation gain and waiver of payable.

Research and development ("R&D") expenses declined by 1.9% to RMB 132.3 million (US$ 20.8 million) from RMB 134.9 million in the same quarter of 2014. As a percentage of net revenue, R&D spending was 4.4% compared with 3.6% in the same quarter of 2014. R&D expenses reflected development and testing costs as new engines were introduced to the market and GYMCL continued its initiatives to improve engine quality. 

Selling, general & administrative ("SG&A") expenses of RMB 355.9 million (US$ 55.9 million) declined from RMB 392.7 million in the third quarter last year, a decrease of RMB 36.8 million or 9.4%. SG&A expenses represented 11.8% of net revenue compared with 10.5% in the third quarter of 2014. The increase in the SG&A percentage was mainly due to the effect of lower sales as well as higher warranty expenses and provision for doubtful debts.

Operating profit decreased to RMB 74.2 million (US$ 11.7 million) from RMB 227.6 million in the third quarter of 2014. The decrease was mainly due to lower gross profit, and other operating losses compared with other operating income in the third quarter of 2014. The operating margin was 2.5% compared with 6.1% in the third quarter of 2014.

Finance costs decreased by 40.3% to RMB 30.9 million (US$ 4.9 million) from RMB 51.7 million in the same quarter last year. Lower finance costs mainly resulted from less bills discounting. 

The share of joint ventures was a loss of RMB 5.9 million (US$ 0.9 million), compared with a loss of RMB 2.9 million in the same quarter of 2014.

In the third quarter of 2015, profit before tax was RMB 37.3 million (US$ 5.9 million), compared with a profit of RMB 268.1 million, a decrease of RMB 230.8 million.  In 2015, there was a loss of RMB 17.3 million relating to Xiamen Factory's loss from disposal and writing off of certain plant and equipment.  In 2014, there were gains from acquisitions of RMB 95.2 million.    

In the third quarter of 2015, total net profit attributable to China Yuchai's shareholders was RMB 0.35 million (US$ 0.05 million), or earnings per share of RMB 0.01 (US 0.14 cents), compared with RMB 143.8 million, or earnings per share of RMB 3.77 in the same quarter in 2014.

Earnings per share in the third quarter 2015 was based on a weighted average of 39,142,533 shares compared with earnings per share in the third quarter 2014 which was based on a weighted average of 38,135,182 shares.

As a percentage of net revenue, R&D spending was 3.6% compared with 2.9% in the first nine months of 2014.

Operating profit decreased to RMB 643.0 million (US$ 101.1 million) from RMB 901.5 million in the same period last year.  The decrease was mainly due to lower gross profit and other operating loss compared with other operating income in the third quarter of 2014.

We responded by increasing our efficiency through the disposal of Xiamen Factory and consolidating our manufacturing and assembly operations in Yulin. We continue to emphasize operational efficiency and cost controls to increase profitability."

"The near-term outlook remains uncertain, but we are encouraged by the Chinese government's policies to ensure stability of its economy. We continue to look for ways to strengthen our balance sheet and enhance shareholder value."
