  • Revenue increased by 45.5% to $33.1 million, primarily attributable to increase in average selling prices (ASP) for both corrugating medium paper ("CMP") and offset printing paper as well as increase in sales volume of CMP, partially offset by the decrease in sales volume of offset printing paper.
  • Gross profit decreased by 13% to $3.0 million. Gross margin decreased by 6.1 percentage points to 9.1%. The decrease in gross profit and gross margin were primarily due to increases in unit costs of recycled paper board and recycled white scrap paper.
  • Net income was $0.1 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to $0.016 million, or $0.001 per diluted share, for the same period of last year.
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") decreased by 16.2% to $3.6 million.

Mr. Zhenyong Liu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, "We are pleased to see a strong snapback in our business during the second quarter following the suspension of production from late January to Mid-March due to a government-mandated restriction on the supply of natural gas that interrupted our normal business during the first quarter. Our total revenue increased by 45.5% to $33.1 million, benefitted from continued uptick in average selling prices for both CMP and offset print paper. Looking forward, while the temporary government mandated production restriction/suspension from time to time continues to pose risks and uncertainties to our business, we expect that the prices for our major products to remain relatively stable at the current levels."

Revenue

For the second quarter of 2018, total revenue increased by $10.4 million, or 45.5%, to $33.1 million from $22.8 million for the same period of the prior year. The increase in total revenue was mainly due to the increase in ASP for both CMP and offset printing paper as well as the increase in sale volume of CMP, partially offset by a decrease in sales volume of offset printing paper resulted from a slowdown of market demand. The following table summarizes revenue, volume and ASP by product for the second quarter of 2018 and 2017, respectively:

Revenue from CMP, including both regular CMP and light-Weight CMP, increased by $11.8 million, or 68.7%, to $28.9 million and accounted for 87.2% of total revenue for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $17.1 million, or 75.2% of total revenue, for the same period of the prior year. The Company sold 48,084 tonnes of CMP at an ASP of $601/tonne in the second quarter of 2018, compared to 47,194 tonnes at an ASP of $363/tonne in the same period of the prior year.

Of the total CMP sales, revenue from regular CMP increased by $9.4 million, or 67.8%, to $23.3 million, resulting from sales of 38,541 tonnes at an ASP of $605/tonne, during the second quarter of 2018, compared to revenue of $13.9 million, resulting from sales of 37,994 tonnes at an ASP of $366/tonne, for the same period of the prior year. Revenue from light-weight CMP increased by $2.4 million, or 72.6%, to $5.6 million, resulting from sales of 9,543 tonnes at an ASP of $587/tonne for the second quarter of 2018, compared to revenue of $3.2 million, resulting from sales of 9,200 tonnes at an ASP of $353/tonne for the same period of the prior year.

Revenue from offset printing paper decreased by $0.7 million, or 14.2%, to $4.2 million for the second quarter of 2018, from $4.9 million for the same period of the prior year. The Company sold 4,911 tonnes of offset printing paper at an ASP of $861/tonne in the second quarter of 2018, compared to 7,307 tonnes at an ASP of $674/tonne in the same period of the prior year.

Production of tissue paper was suspended in September and October 2017 for the replacement of coal boilers, and intermittent production resumed in the following months due to volatility in the price of tissue paper. We had no revenue from tissue paper products for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $0.7 million, resulting from sales of 568 tonnes at an ASP of $1,275/tonne, for the second quarter of 2017. We expect to resume and increase production of tissue products once the market condition becomes more favorable.

Revenue generated from digital photo paper were $14,028 for the three months ended June 30, 2018. In June 2016, we suspended the production of digital photo paper due to low market demand for our products and now are considering renovating the line to produce more competitive products. We expect that our digital photo paper production will remain suspended for the near future.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Total cost of sales for CMP, offset printing paper and tissue paper products increased by $10.8 million, or 55.9%, to $30.1 million for the second quarter of 2018, from $19.3 million for the same period of the prior year. Cost of sales per tonne was $568 for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $351 for the same period of the prior year. The increase in overall cost of sales per tonne was mainly due to increased material costs, specifically higher average unit purchase costs of recycled paper board and recycled white scrap paper. Costs of sales per tonne for regular CMP, light-weight CMP, offset printing paper, and tissue paper products were, $550, $513, $823, and $nil, respectively, for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $312, $284, $571 and $1,210, respectively, for the same period of the prior year.

Gross profit was $3.0 million for the second quarter of 2018, compared to gross profit of $3.5 million for the same period of the prior year. Overall gross margin was 9.1% for the second quarter of 2018, compared to gross profit margin of 15.2% for the same period of the prior year. The decrease in gross profit and gross margin were mainly due to the increase in unit cost of recycled paper board and recycled white scrap paper and decrease in sales volume of offset printing paper, partially offset by an increase in average selling prices as discussed above. Gross margins for regular CMP, light-weight CMP, offset printing paper, and tissue paper products were 9.1%, 12.6%, 4.5%, and nil, respectively, for the second quarter of 2018, compared to gross profit margin of 14.7%, 19.5%, 15.3%, and 5.1%, respectively, for the same period of the prior year.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") increased by $0.3 million, or 12.6%, to $3.0 million for the second quarter of 2018 from $2.7 million for the same period of the prior year. The increase was mainly due to the depreciation of Renminbi against US Dollor in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same period of 2017. As a percentage of total revenue, SG&A was 9.1% for the second quarter of 2018, compared to 11.8% for the same period of the prior year. 

Income (loss) from Operations

Loss from operations was $0.01 million for the second quarter of 2018, compared to income from operations of $0.8 million for the same period of the prior year. The decrease in operating income was primarily due to the decrease in gross profit and increase in selling, general and administrative expenses as discussed above. Operating loss margin was 0.04% for the second quarter of 2018, compare to operating profit margin of 3.4% for the same period of the prior year.

Net Income

Net income was $0.1 million, or net income of $0.01 per basic and diluted share, for the second quarter of 2018, compared to net income of $0.02 million, or net earnings of $0.001 per basic and diluted share, for the same period of the prior year.

EBITDA

EBITDA was $3.6 million for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $4.4 million for the same period of the prior year.

Note 1: Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our U.S. GAAP results, this press release includes a discussion of EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). The Company defines EBITDA as net income before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is a key measure used by management to evaluate our results and make strategic decisions. Management believes this measure is useful to investors because it is an indicator of operational performance. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the Company's presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, and should not be viewed as an alternative to measures of financial performance or changes in cash flows calculated in accordance with the U.S. GAAP.
