China Yuchai International Announces Unaudited Second Quarter 2010 Financial Results
SINGAPORE, Aug 11, 2010 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ --
China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE: CYD) ("China Yuchai" or the "Company"), announced today its unaudited consolidated financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010. The financial information presented herein for FY 2009 and FY 2010 is reported using International Financial Reporting Standards as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board ("IFRS").
The financial highlights for the second quarter of 2010 are: -- Net revenue was RMB 4.0 billion (US$ 591.4 million), an increase of 15.7% compared to the second quarter of 2009; -- The gross margin was 22.3% compared with 16.7% for the second quarter of 2009; -- Operating margin was 8.2% compared with 3.6% in the second quarter of 2009; -- Total net profit attributable to China Yuchai's shareholders was RMB 179.1 million (US$ 26.4 million), or earnings per share of RMB 4.81 (US$ 0.71), compared with RMB 64.8 million (US$ 9.5 million), or earnings per share of RMB 1.74 (US$ 0.26) in the second quarter of 2009; -- As of June 30, cash and cash equivalent was RMB 3.5 billion (US$ 509.9 million).
Net revenue for the second quarter of 2010 was RMB 4.0 billion (US$ 591.4 million) compared with RMB 3.5 billion (US$ 511.1 million) in the second quarter of 2009, representing a 15.7% year-over-year growth. The total number of diesel engines sold by the Company's main operating subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited ("GYMCL"), during the second quarter of 2010 was 132,092 units compared with 129,932 units in the previous year. There was an increase in engine sales volume notwithstanding the tightening of bank lending and other anti-inflationary measures implemented by the Chinese government. The effect of these actions together with higher inventories available in the industry, dampened the demand for buses and trucks. The stronger growth in revenue was primarily due to the shift of product sales towards more heavy and medium-duty engines compared with a year ago.
Gross profit was RMB 895.1 million (US$ 131.8 million) in the second quarter of 2010, representing a 54.2% increase over the gross profit of RMB 580.6 million (US$ 85.5 million) in the second quarter of 2009. The gross margin was 22.3% for the second quarter of 2010, a 5.6% improvement over the gross margin of 16.7% for the second quarter of 2009. In the second quarter of 2010, the Company sold more heavy and medium-duty engines which carry higher gross margins, compared to the same quarter last year.
Other income increased to RMB 17.2 million (US $2.5 million) compared to the same period in 2009 mainly due to the increase in interest income.
Research and development ("R & D") expenses were RMB 82.9 million (US$ 12.2 million) in the second quarter of 2010 versus RMB 73.0 million (US$ 10.7 million) in the second quarter of 2009. As a percentage of net revenue, R & D spending was 2.1% of net revenue in the second quarter, in line with the same quarter last year.
Selling, general & administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2010 were RMB 498.3 million (US$ 73.4 million) compared with RMB 383.6 million (US$ 56.5 million) in the second quarter of 2009. These expenses represented 12.4% of second quarter 2010 net revenue compared with 11.1% of second quarter 2009 net revenue. The increase compared to the same quarter a year ago, is due to the increase in selling and distribution expenses relating to warranty, freight and delivery charges and sales promotion.
Operating profit was RMB 331.1 million (US$ 48.8 million) in the second quarter of 2010, a 162.9% increase over the RMB 126.0 million (US$ 18.6 million) in the second quarter of 2009. The increase is mainly due to higher gross profit. The operating margin was 8.2% in the second quarter of 2010 compared with 3.6% in the second quarter of 2009.
In the second quarter of 2010, total net profit attributable to China Yuchai's shareholders increased 176.5% to RMB 179.1 million (US$ 26.4 million), or earnings per share of RMB 4.81(US$ 0.71), in the second quarter of 2010 compared with RMB 64.8 million (US$ 9.5 million), or earnings per share of RMB 1.74(US$ 0.26) in the second quarter of 2009.
Six Months Ended June 30, 2010
For the six months ended June 30, 2010, net revenues rose 41.6% to RMB 9.1 billion (US$ 1.3 billion). The gross profit increased by 80.1% to RMB 1.9 billion (US$ 282.8 million) representing a 21.1% gross margin. Operating income was RMB 799.8 million (US$ 117.8 million). Total net profit attributable to China Yuchai's shareholders for the six months ended June 30, 2010 was RMB 450.9 million (US$ 66.4 million), or earnings per share of RMB 12.1(US$ 1.78).
As of June 30, 2010, the Company had cash and cash equivalent of RMB 3.5 billion (US$ 509.9 million) compared with total short-term and long-term interest bearing loans and borrowings of RMB 929.5 million (US$ 136.9 million). Total equity attributable to China Yuchai's shareholders increased to RMB 4.4 billion (US$ 653.6 million) on June 30, 2010, from RMB 4.0 billion on December 31, 2009. The total shares issued and outstanding as of June 30, 2010 were 37,267,673 shares.
On July 8, 2010, China Yuchai announced that further to its sale of 536 million shares out of the 550 million shares in Thakral Corporation Limited ("TCL") at S$0.03 per share available in its placement exercise, its shareholding interest in TCL through its wholly-owned subsidiaries Venture Delta Limited and Grace Star Services Ltd., had reduced from 34.4% to 13.9%. Subsequently, the Company sold additional TCL shares in the open market resulting in its shareholding interest in TCL decreasing further from 13.9% to 12.3%.
Mr. Boo Guan Saw, President of China Yuchai, commented, "Our market share in the more profitable heavy and medium-duty engines has been increasing in the first half of 2010 compared with a year ago. We are introducing new engine models and increasing our production capacity of heavy-duty engines to improve our competitive position in this important segment. Pricing in the heavy-duty market remains favourable. We also see good opportunities in the industrial, marine and power generation markets to expand our sales and market position in both the domestic and international markets especially with our new engines. We have made great strides in enhancing the efficiency of our new automated foundry to increase production of key components and reduce costs. Also, production capacity at our new assembly facility at Xiamen has reached 50,000 units annually to supply to our customers in South-Central China."
"Combining our increased in-sourcing capabilities through the new foundry and assembly plant, with the expansion of our product lines through our 3 strategic joint ventures, CIMC-Chery, Caterpillar and Geely, China Yuchai is in a better position to maintain its leadership position in China's diesel engine industry. The CIMC-Chery joint venture is expected to commence production of its heavy-duty YC6K diesel engines at the end of 2010 which will add capacity to our heavy-duty engine volume. We have invested approximately RMB 140 million to double production of our 6L and 6M heavy-duty diesel engines from 62,000 units to a forecasted 120,000 units in early 2011. The remanufacturing joint venture with Caterpillar is expected to begin operations at Suzhou Industrial Park, Jiangsu Province in 2011 and the joint venture with Geely is expected to yield the first-generation prototype of the 4D20-2L diesel engine by the end of 2010. As urbanization continues in China with ongoing infrastructure investment and anticipated acceleration in public housing construction, trucks and buses will play an important role in the demand for transportation. According to the People's Bank of China, China's economy grew 10.3% in the second quarter of 2010 compared with 11.9% in the first quarter of 2010 due to the effects of the Chinese government's credit tightening policy. Notwithstanding that 2010 is expected to continue to be a growth year in China, China's slowing growth momentum could have an impact on our operating performance in the subsequent quarters of 2010 as compared with the first six months of 2010," Mr. Saw concluded.
