First Half Year of 2018 Financial Performance

For the first half year of 2018, revenue decreased by 12.2% year-over-year to RMB940.4 million ($142.1 million) from RMB1,071.0 million in the same period of 2017. The decrease in revenue was mainly due to lower sales volume of edible alcohol and its by-products.

Revenue breakdown by product lines is as follows:  

  • Revenue from edible alcohol decreased by 7.3% to RMB661.1 million ($99.9 million) in the first half year of 2018, compared to RMB713.0 million in the first half year of 2017. The sales volume of edible alcohol in the first half year of 2018 decreased by 18.4% year-over-year to 150,386 tons, while the average selling price of edible alcohol increased by 13.7% year-over-year to RMB4,396 per ton.
  • Revenue from DDGS Feed decreased by 12.2% to RMB227.4 million ($34.4 million) in the first half year of 2018, compared to RMB258.9 million in the first half year of 2017. The sales volume of DDGS Feed in the first half year of 2018 decreased by 14.7% year-over-year to 137,161 tons, while the average selling price increased by 2.9% year-over-year to RMB1,658 per ton.
  • Revenue from liquid carbon dioxide increased by 34.1% to RMB14.0 million ($2.1 million) in the first half year of 2018, compared to RMB10.5 million in the first half year of 2017. The sales volume of liquid carbon dioxide in the first half year of 2018 decreased by 14.8% year-over-year to 52,197 tons, while the average selling price increased by 57.4% year-over-year to RMB269 per ton.
  • In 2017, we invested in and completed the construction of our AMPS manufacturing plant with an annual production capacity of 4,000 tons. AMPS is a chemical product that is widely used in many fields, including oilfield chemistry, water treatment and synthetic fibers. Revenue from AMPS products increased by 284.4% to RMB37.8 million ($5.7 million) in the first half year of 2018, compared to RMB9.8 million in the first half year of 2017. The sales volume of AMPS in the first half year of 2018 increased by 262.7% year-over-year to 2,067 tons, and the average selling price increased by 6.0% year-over-year to RMB18,283 per ton.

During the first half year of 2018, gross profit decreased by 54.1% to RMB65.7 million ($9.9 million) from RMB143.2 million in the same period of 2017. Gross margin for the first half year of 2018 decreased to 7.0%, from 13.4% in the same period of 2017, which was primarily attributable to the steeper increase in average corn cost, compare with selling price of edible alcohol. 

Operating income decreased by 63.3% to RMB42.3 million ($6.4 million) in the first half year of 2018, from RMB115.5 million in the same period of 2017, primarily due to lower gross profit earned.

Selling expenses decreased by RMB0.1 million, or 6.5% to RMB1.7 million ($0.3 million) in the first half year of 2018, from RMB1.8 million in the same period of 2017.

General and administrative expenses decreased by RMB4.2 million, or 16.5% to RMB21.7 million ($3.3 million) in the first half year of 2018, from RMB25.9 million in the same period of 2017.

Income tax expenses in the third quarter of 2017 were RMB3.5 million ($0.5 million), representing an effective tax rate of 25.0%.

Net income decreased by 83.1% to RMB10.5 million ($1.6 million) in the first half year of 2018, compared to RMB62.0 million in the same period of 2017. In the first half year of 2018, basic and diluted earnings per share and per ADS were RMB0.41 ($0.06), and the Company had 25.7 million weighted average basic and diluted shares outstanding. 

As of June 30, 2018, cash and bank deposits of RMB1.1 billion ($164.3 million) increased by RMB358.6 million, compared with RMB728.3 million as of December 31, 2017.
