China Yuchai International Increases Profitability in Third Quarter 2016

SINGAPORE, Nov. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE: CYD) ("China Yuchai" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer and distributor of engines for on- 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, 2016.

Financial Highlights for the Third Quarter of 2016

  • Net revenue declined to RMB 2.9 billion (US$ 432.1 million) compared with RMB 3.0 billion in the third quarter of 2015; 
  • Gross profit was RMB 630.7 million (US$ 94.5 million), with gross margin increasing to 21.9% compared with RMB 586.8 million and a gross margin of 19.5% in the third quarter of 2015; 
  • Operating profit increased 117.2% to RMB 161.1 million (US$ 24.1 million) compared with RMB 74.2 million in the third quarter of 2015;
  • Net earnings attributable to China Yuchai's shareholders increased to RMB 76.8 million (US$ 11.5 million) from RMB 0.3 million;
  • Earnings per share were RMB 1.89 (US$ 0.28) compared with RMB 0.01 in the third quarter of 2015;
  • Total number of engines sold was 66,013 units compared with 84,170 units in the third quarter of 2015.

The net revenue for the third quarter of 2016 declined by 4.0% to RMB 2.9 billion (US$ 432.1 million) from RMB 3.0 billion for the same quarter last year. 

The total number of engines sold was 66,013 units as compared with 84,170 units for the same period last year, a reduction of 21.6%. According to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers ("CAAM"), in the third quarter of 2016, sales of commercial vehicles (excluding gasoline-powered and electric vehicles) increased by 10.5% led by an increase of 15.4% in the truck segment whereas sales in the bus segment decreased by 13.1%. China Yuchai's sales reflected these trends as our engine sales to the truck segment increased whereas sales to the bus segment decreased compared with the same quarter last year.  Sales of marine and power generation engines increased as compared with the same quarter last year.  As a result of the transition to Tier 3 emission standard in the off-highway segment, sales to the agricultural segment declined as compared with the same quarter last year.

Gross profit was RMB 630.7 million (US$ 94.5 million) compared with RMB 586.8 million in the same quarter last year. The gross profit margin increased by 2.4% to 21.9% compared with 19.5% in the same quarter last year.  The increase on gross profit margin was mainly due to lower raw material costs and better product mix.

Other operating income was RMB 12.4 million (US$ 1.9 million) compared with other operating loss of RMB 24.5 million in the same quarter last year.  The improvement resulted mainly from lower foreign exchange revaluation losses.  There was also a loss of RMB 12.5 million in the third quarter of 2015 which resulted from the disposal of GYMCL's entire shareholding interest in Xiamen Yuchai Diesel Engines Co., Ltd. ("Xiamen Factory").

Research and development ("R&D") expenses increased by 22.0% to RMB 161.4 million (US$ 24.2 million) from RMB 132.3 million in the same quarter last year.  R&D expenses increased mainly due to the ongoing research and development of new and existing engine products as well as continued initiatives to improve engine quality.  As a percentage of net revenue, R&D spending was 5.6% as compared with 4.4% in the same quarter last year.

Selling, general & administrative ("SG&A") expenses declined by RMB 35.3 million, or 9.9% to RMB 320.6 million (US$ 48.0 million) from RMB 355.9 million in the third quarter last year.  The decrease was mainly due to lower warranty expenses and lower provision of doubtful debts.  SG&A expenses represented 11.1% of net revenue as compared with 11.8% in the same period last year.
Operating profit increased by 117.2% to RMB 161.1 million (US$ 24.1 million) from RMB 74.2 million in the third quarter last year.  The increase was mainly due to higher gross profit, lower SG&A costs and other operating income compared with the same quarter last year. The operating margin was 5.6% compared with 2.5% in the same quarter last year.

Finance costs decreased by 40.0% to RMB 18.5 million (US$ 2.8 million) from RMB 30.9 million in the third quarter last year.  Lower finance costs mainly resulted from reduced bank loans and lower borrowings.  External borrowings decreased to RMB 763.1 million from RMB 2.7 billion in the same period last year.

Profit before tax was RMB 142.3 million (US$ 21.3 million), compared with RMB 37.3 million in the third quarter last year, an increase of RMB 105.0 million

Total net profit attributable to China Yuchai's shareholders was RMB 76.8 million (US$ 11.5 million), or earnings per share of RMB 1.89 (US$ 0.28), compared with RMB 0.3 million, and RMB 0.01 respectively in the third quarter last year.  Earnings per share in the third quarter of 2016 was based on a weighted average of 40,712,100 shares compared with 39,142,533 shares in the third quarter of 2015.

Financial Highlights for the Nine Months ended September 30, 2016

  • Net revenue declined to RMB 9.9 billion (US$ 1.5 billion) compared with RMB 10.8 billion a year ago;
  • Gross profit was RMB 1.9 billion (US$ 291.3 million), or a gross margin of 19.6%, compared with RMB 2.1 billion, or a gross margin of 19.4% a year ago;
  • Operating profit decreased to RMB 587.9 million (US$ 88.0 million) compared with RMB 643.0 million a year ago;
  • Earnings per share were RMB 7.28 (US$ 1.09) compared with RMB 7.32 a year ago;
  • Total number of engines sold was 244,575 units compared with 304,424 units a year ago.

For the nine months ended September 30, 2016, net revenue declined 8.1% to RMB 9.9 billion (US$ 1.5 billion) from RMB 10.8 billion in the same period last year.

The total number of engines sold was 244,575 units compared with 304,424 units in the same period last year, representing a reduction of 19.7%. The decrease was due to the decline in sales to the bus segment, and the transition to Tier 3 emission standards in the off-highway segments which impacted on our sales to the agricultural market. This decrease was mitigated by increased sales to the truck and marine and power generation markets. According to CAAM, in the nine months ended September 30, 2016, sales of commercial vehicles (excluding gasoline-powered and electric vehicles) increased 5.6% led by an increase of 8.1% in the truck segment whereas sales in the bus segment decreased by 8.0%. 

Gross profit was RMB 1.9 billion (US$ 291.3 million) compared with RMB 2.1 billion in the same period last year.  The decline was mainly attributable to lower unit sales.  Gross profit margin increased by 0.2% to 19.6% compared with the same period last year.

Other operating income was RMB 51.8 million (US$ 7.8 million) versus a loss of RMB 6.5 million in the same period last year, an increase of RMB 58.2 million. This increase was mainly due to foreign exchange revaluation gains and higher interest income from bank deposits compared with foreign exchange revaluation losses and a non-recurring loss from the disposal of Xiamen Factory in the same period last year.

Research and development ("R&D") expenses increased by 4.2% to RMB 400.7 million (US$ 60.0 million) compared with RMB 384.5 million in the same period in 2015.  R&D expenses increased mainly due to the ongoing research and development of new and existing engine products as well as continued initiatives to improve engine quality.  As a percentage of net revenue, R&D spending was 4.0% compared with 3.6% in the first nine months of 2015.

Selling, general & administrative ("SG&A") expenses declined 5.2% to RMB 1.0 billion (US$151.1 million) compared with RMB 1.1 billion in the same period last year.  This was mainly due to lower spending on outward freight costs, lower staff costs, and lower provision of doubtful debts, partially offset by higher provision for warranty expenses.  SG&A expenses represented 10.2% of net revenue for the first nine months of 2016, compared with 9.9% in the same period last year.

Operating profit decreased to RMB 587.9 million (US$ 88.0 million) from RMB 643.0 million in the same period last year.  The decrease was mainly due to lower gross profit and higher R&D expenses. The operating margin was 5.9% in the first nine months of 2016 and 2015.
Finance costs declined 27.5% to RMB 68.4 million (US$ 10.2 million) from RMB 94.3 million in the same period last year, a decrease of RMB 25.9 million.  Lower finance costs resulted from lower bank loans and reduced borrowings. External borrowings decreased to RMB 763.1 million from RMB 2.7 billion in the same period last year.   

The share of joint ventures was a loss of RMB 5.9 million (US$ 0.9 million) compared with a loss of RMB 19.3 million in the same period last year.  Lower losses from joint ventures were mainly due to Y&C Engine Co., Ltd's improved operational performance and the reclassification of Copthorne Hotel Qingdao Co., Ltd as assets held for sale. 

Profit before tax was RMB 513.6 million (US$ 76.9 million), compared with RMB 529.5 million, a decrease of RMB 15.9 million.

Total net profit attributable to China Yuchai's shareholders was RMB 289.7 million (US$ 43.4 million), or earnings per share of RMB 7.28 (US$ 1.09), compared with RMB 282.1 million, and RMB 7.32 respectively in the same period last year.  Earnings per share for the first nine months of 2016 was based on a weighted average of 39,783,353 shares compared with 38,514,783 shares for the same period in 2015.

Balance Sheet Highlights as at September 30, 2016

  • Cash and bank balances were RMB 3.1 billion (US$ 462.7 million) compared with RMB 3.8 billion as at December 31, 2015.
  • Short- and long-term borrowings were RMB 763.1 million (US$ 114.3 million) compared with RMB 2.5 billion at the end of 2015.
  • Net inventory was RMB 1.6 billion (US$ 232.5 million) compared with RMB 1.7 billion at the end of 2015.

Mr. Weng Ming Hoh, President of China Yuchai, commented, "We have improved our profitability by selling higher value products in this challenging market environment. Our off-road engine sales have been affected by the ongoing transition from Tier 2 to the more advanced Tier 3 emission standards. This transition should be completed by the end of 2016. We managed to increase sales in the truck and marine and power generation markets in the third quarter."

"With a focus on cash generation and balance sheet management, we reduced our long- and short- term borrowings by 68.9% since the end of 2015 while maintaining a strong cash position. As the near-term outlook remains uncertain, we continue to look for ways to better utilize our financial resources and seek new growth opportunities."
