China New Borun Announces Third Quarter 2016 Unaudited Financial Results
11/22/16

BEIJING, Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- China New Borun Corporation (NYSE: BORN; "Borun" or the "Company"), a leading producer and distributor of corn-based edible alcohol in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2016. 

Mr. Jinmiao Wang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Borun, commented on the results, "Driven by solid demand from the baijiu industry, we were able to deliver record sales volume of edible alcohol and exceeded our previous revenue guidance for the third quarter of 2016.  However, during the quarter, record-low corn prices caused a sharp over-supply of edible alcohol, which pressured pricing and profitability.  As we enter a new harvest season this November, corn prices have stabilized, and we anticipate our profitability will gradually rebound."

"Benefiting from consistently positive quarterly net incomes, our cash flow and balance sheet remain solid, as our cash position increased to almost RMB1 billion at the end of third quarter. This November, we further strengthened our cash position with the issuance of a five-year RMB300 million Corporate Bonds.  Reflecting our strong financials, our Corporate Bonds received an investment-grade rating of  AA- by one of China's notable rating agencies, and as a result, this year's Corporate Bonds fixed-rate of 6.5% is a noticeable improvement from the 2013 Corporate Bonds fixed-rate of 9.3%.  With the proceeds from our Corporate Bonds, we now have cash on hand of almost RMB1.3 billion, or nearly USD200 million, and as such, we are confident about our abilities to execute on our objectives for the remainder of 2016 and our strategic initiatives for 2017," Mr. Wang concluded.

Third Quarter 2016 Financial Performance

For the third quarter of 2016, revenue decreased by 8.9% year-over-year to RMB602.2 million ($90.2 million) from RMB661.4 million in the same period of 2015. The decrease in revenue was mainly due to a sharp decrease in ASP for edible alcohol and its by-products, and a decline in sales from crude corn oil at the Company's Daqing facility.

Revenue breakdown by product lines is as follows:  

  • Revenue from edible alcohol decreased by 5.9% to RMB403.9 million ($60.5 million) in the third quarter of 2016, compared to RMB429.3 million in the third quarter of 2015. The sales volume of edible alcohol in the third quarter of 2016 increased by 13.5% year-over-year to 94,347 tons, and the average selling price of edible alcohol decreased by 17.1% year-over-year to RMB4,281 per ton.
  • Revenue from DDGS Feed decreased by 3.3% to RMB135.7 million ($20.3 million) in the third quarter of 2016, compared to RMB140.4 million in the third quarter of 2015. The sales volume of DDGS Feed in the third quarter of 2016 increased by 11.7% year-over-year to 80,750 tons, and the average selling price decreased by 13.4% year-over-year to RMB1,681 per ton.
  • Revenue from liquid carbon dioxide decreased by 17.1% to RMB6.0 million ($0.9 million) in the third quarter of 2016, compared to RMB7.3 million in the third quarter of 2015. The sales volume of liquid carbon dioxide in the third quarter of 2016 increased by 11.0% year-over-year to 35,233 tons, and the average selling price decreased by 25.3% year-over-year to RMB171 per ton.
  • Revenue from crude corn oil decreased by 51.4% to RMB19.5 million ($2.9 million) in the third quarter of 2016, compared to RMB40.1 million in the third quarter of 2015. The sharp decrease in revenue was mainly due to the shut down for the crude corn oil facility in Daqing facility during the third quarter. The sales volume of crude corn oil in the third quarter of 2016 decreased by 51.0% year-over-year to 3,083 tons, and the average selling price decreased by 0.9% year-over-year to RMB6,315 per ton.
  • Revenue from chlorinated polyethylene ("CPE") decreased by 16.4% to RMB37.2 million ($5.6 million) in the third quarter of 2016, compared to RMB44.4 million in the third quarter of 2015. The sales volume of CPE in the third quarter of 2016 decreased by 12.9% year-over-year to 4,530 tons, while the average selling price decreased by 4.0% year-over-year to RMB8,205 per ton.

During the third quarter of 2016, gross profit decreased by 50.9% to RMB32.6 million ($4.9 million) from RMB66.3 million in the same period of 2015. Gross margin for the third quarter of 2016 decreased to 5.4%, from 10.0% in the same period of 2015, which was primarily due to steeper decrease in ASP of edible alcohol and its by-products than the cost of corn.

Operating income decreased by 58.4% to RMB21.1 million ($3.2 million) in the third quarter of 2016, from RMB50.7 million in the same period of 2015, primarily due to lower gross profit earned.

Selling expenses decreased by RMB0.9 million, or 49.9% to RMB1.0 million ($0.1 million) in the third quarter of 2016, from RMB1.9 million in the same period of 2015.

General and administrative expenses decreased by RMB3.1 million, or 23.1% to RMB10.5 million ($1.6 million) in the third quarter of 2016, from RMB13.6 million in the same period of 2015.

Income tax expenses in the third quarter of 2016 were RMB2.7 million ($0.4 million), representing an effective tax rate of 25.0%.

Net income decreased by 63.2% to RMB8.0 million ($1.2 million) in the third quarter of 2016, compared to RMB21.8 million in the same quarter of 2015. The decrease in net income was primarily due to the decrease in revenue and lower gross margin during the third quarter.

In the third quarter of 2016, basic and diluted earnings per share and per ADS were RMB0.31 ($0.05), and the Company had 25.7 million weighted average basic and diluted shares outstanding. 

As of September 30, 2016, cash and bank deposits totaled RMB990.7 million ($148.4 million), an increase of RMB495.1 million, compared with RMB495.6 million as of December 31, 2015. Cash flows generated from operating activities for the third quarter of 2016 were RMB382.1 million ($57.2 million), mainly attributable to the cash generated by consumption of corn inventory.

Financial Outlook

Reflecting a sharp year-over-year decrease in ASP for edible alcohol and its by-products, the Company estimates that its revenue for the fourth quarter of 2016 will be in the range of RMB480 million ($71.9 million) to RMB530 million ($79.4 million), a decrease of approximately 24.2% to a decrease of 31.3% over the same quarter of 2015.

This guidance is based on the current market conditions and reflects the Company's current and preliminary estimates of market and operating conditions and customer demand, which are all subject to change.
