Third Quarter 2020 Results
Revenues were US$290.1 million in the third quarter ended September 30, 2020, a decrease of US$83.1 million, or 22.3%, compared to US$373.2 million in the same period of last year. This was due to the decrease of 8.9% in sales volume and a decrease of 16.5% in the average RMB selling price of our products, as compared with those of the same period of last year, partially offset by an appreciation of RMB against USD by 1.8%.
(i) Domestic market
For the three-month period ended September 30, 2020, revenue from domestic market decreased by US$62.4 million or 17.7% compared with that in the same period of last year, as a result of (i) a decrease of 6.6% in sales volume; and (ii) a decrease of 13.8% in the average RMB selling price of our products, as compared with those of last year; partially offset by (iii) an appreciation of RMB against USD by 1.1%;.
According to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, automobile production and sales in China decreased by 6.7% and 6.9%, respectively, for the first nine months of 2020 as compared to the same period of 2019.
The weakening in macroeconomic conditions since the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic in January 2020 continued to exacerbate auto business environment. The Company’s business was negatively impacted and has generated lower revenue. Thanks to our positive efforts to expand our customer bases and to meet their new requirements, the Company has begun to recover slowly after May 2020. We had increase in sales by 43.9% in Southwest China and 19.3% in East China, except a decrease in sales by 71.2% in Northeast China, 45.7% in Central China, 27.7% in North China and 0.8% in South China for the three-month period ended September 30, 2020 as compared to the same period of 2019.
As for the RMB selling price, the decrease of 13.8% was mainly due to Company's marketing strategy to offer discount sales to receive more orders in order to accelerate inventory turnover and replenish operating funds in domestic market during the three-month period ended September 30, 2020.
(ii) Overseas market
For the three-month period ended September 30, 2020, revenues from overseas market US$0.2 million as compared to US$20.9 million of the same period of 2019. The Dubai facility was temporarily shut down since late February and has not resumed its operation till the current period, which has negatively impacted operations in Dubai facility.
Premium products (PA66, PA6, POM, PPO, Plastic Alloy and PLA) in total accounted for 85.3% of revenues from sales of finished goods in the third quarter of 2020, compared to 86.7% in the prior year period. The Company continued to shift production mix from traditional lower-end products such as PP to higher-end products such as PA66 and PA6, primarily due to (i) greater growth potential of advanced modified plastics in luxury automobile models in China, (ii) the stronger demand as a result of promotion by the Chinese government for clean energy vehicles and (iii) better quality demand from and consumer recognition of higher-end cars made by automotive manufacturers from Chinese and Germany joint ventures, Sino-U.S. and Sino-Japanese joint ventures, which manufacturers tend to use more and higher-end modified plastics in quantity per vehicle in China.
Gross profit was US$34.6 million in the third quarter ended September 30, 2020, compared to US$60.1 million in the same period of 2019, representing a decrease of US$25.5 million or 42.4%. Our gross margin decreased to 11.9% during the third quarter ended September 30, 2020 from 16.1% during the same quarter of 2019 primarily due to more sales of higher-end products and more sales of semi-finished goods during the third quarter of 2019, and the increased cost for idle capacity as a result of shutdown.
General and administrative (G&A) expenses were US$11.0 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to US$6.0 million in the same period in 2019, representing an increase of 83.3%, or US$5.0 million. The increase was primarily due to the US$4.19 million of share based compensation cost recognized in the third quarter of 2020.
Provision for doubtful accounts was US$6.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to nil in the same period of 2019. As of September 30, 2020, accounts receivable of US$2.0 million from the Company’s two customers in UAE and US$4.8 million from the Company’s customer in PRC was overdue for more than 12 months. Based on assessment of the collectability of the amounts due from the customers, the Company provided an allowance for doubtful accounts of US$6.8 million for the period ended September 30, 2020.
Provision for long-term prepayments to equipment and construction suppliers was US$21.8 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to nil in the same period of 2019. On October 20, 2016, Sichuan Xinda entered into an equipment purchase agreement purchase contract with Peaceful for a total consideration of RMB89.8 million (equivalent to US$12.7 million), and on May 31, 2019, Dubai Xinda entered into an equipment purchase contract with Peaceful for a total consideration of US$18.8 million to purchase production and testing equipment. As of September 30, 2020, Peaceful failed to deliver the equipments under the purchase agreements. Based on the assessment of the realizability of the prepayments, the Company recognized a provision of US$21.8 million for the period ended September 30, 2020.
Research and development expenses were US$4.4 million in the quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared with US$19.9 million in the same period in 2019, representing a decrease of US$15.5 million, or 77.9%. This decrease was due to (i) a decrease of US$14.9 million in raw materials consumption, (ii) a decrease of US$0.4 million in depreciation, and (iii) a decrease of US$0.2 million in salary and welfare for R&D personnel. As of September 30, 2020, the number of ongoing research and development projects was 347.
Total operating income was negative US$9.7 million in the third quarter ended September 30, 2020 compared to US$33.8 million in the same period of 2019, representing a decrease of 128.7% or US$43.5 million. This decrease is primarily due to the lower gross profit and the higher operating expenses.
Net interest expenses were US$22.3 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2020, compared to US$16.7 million in the same period of 2019, representing a increase of 33.5% or US$5.6 million, primarily due to (i) the increase of average loan interest rate from 4.70% of the same period in 2019 to 6.41% for the three-month period ended September 30, 2020 and (ii) the increase of average short-term and long-term loan balance in the amount of US$1,326.3 million for the three-month period ended September 30, 2020 compared to US$915.6 million of the same period in 2019.
The effective income tax rates for the three-month periods ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 were negative 4.5% and 24.8%, respectively. The decrease of effective income tax rate was primarily due to the increased loss before income taxes from Dubai Xinda and decreased income before taxes from HLJ Xinda Group and Sichuan Xinda.
Net loss was US$38.0 million in the third quarter of 2020 compared to a net income of US$17.0 million in the same quarter of 2019, representing a decrease of US$55.0 million, or 323.5%. Basic and diluted losses per share for the third quarter of 2020 were both US$0.56, compared to US$0.25 earnings per share per share for the same period of 2019.
The average number of shares used in the computation of basic and diluted earnings per share for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was 67.9 million, compared to 51.8 million shares for earnings per share in the prior year period.
Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) was negative $0.07 million for the third quarter of 2020, compared of $54.6 million for the same period of 2019, representing a decrease of $54.7 million, or 100.2%. For a detailed reconciliation of EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure, to its nearest GAAP equivalent, please see the financial tables at the end of this release.
As of September 30, 2020, the Company had US$385.2 million in the total amount of cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and time deposits, representing an increase of US$156.8 million or 68.7% as compared to US$228.4 million as of December 31, 2019, mainly due to the financing activity cash inflows. As of September 30, 2020, working capital was US$307.5 million (current assets minus current liabilities) and the current ratio (current assets divided by current liabilities) was 1.2, as compared to the current ratio of 1.0 as of December 31, 2019. Stockholders' equity as of September 30, 2020 was US$877.3 million, increased by 4.8% as compared to US$836.4 million as of December 31, 2019, primarily due to the increase of US$48.0 million noncontrolling interests.
Prepaid expenses and other current assets increased by 113.2% or US$194.5 million primarily because (i) receivables due from third parties increased by US$278.2 million, partially offset by (ii) a decrease of US$42.6 million of receivables from Hong Kong Grand Royal Trading Co., Ltd., and (iii) a decrease of US$40.0 million of advances to suppliers for purchasing raw materials. The aggregate short-term and long-term bank loans increased by 39.5% due to using the line of credits to support operating and investing activities in HLJ Xinda Group and Sichuan Xinda. We define the manageable debt level as the sum of aggregate short-term and long-term loans over total assets.
On November 5, 2020, the Company held a special meeting of stockholders, at which the Company’s stockholders voted, among other things, in favor of the proposal to adopt the previously announced agreement and plan of merger (the “Merger Agreement”), dated as of June 15, 2020, by and among the Company, Faith Dawn Limited, an exempted company with limited liability incorporated under the laws of the Cayman Islands (“Parent”), and Faith Horizon Inc., a Nevada corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of Parent (“Merger Sub”), providing for the merger of the Merger Sub with and into the Company, with the Company continuing as the surviving corporation and as a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent (the “Merger”).
The Merger remains subject to various customary closing conditions as set forth in the Merger Agreement. If and when completed, the proposed merger would result in the Company becoming a privately-held company and the common stock of the Company would no longer be listed on the NASDAQ Global Market or any other stock exchange, and price quotations with respect to shares of Company common stock in the public market will no longer be available.
Financial Guidance and Business Outlook
As a result of the outbreak of COVID-19 in the PRC, China Auto Industry production and sales drastically decreased by 6.7% and 6.9% for the first nine months of 2020, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers. It has a ripple effect and impact throughout China auto supply chain, including the Company.
Due to the fact that the Company had temporarily closed some of its manufacturing facilities and offices in the PRC in accordance with the requirement of the PRC government, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has an ongoing material adverse effect on our business operations. In light of these circumstances and continuing uncertainties, the Company will not be able to forecast its financial guidance for fiscal 2020 until further notice.
