NEW YORK, March 18 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- SmartHeat Inc. (Nasdaq: HEAT - News; website:, a market leader in China's clean technology energy savings industry today announced audited 2008 financial results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2008. SmartHeat is a US company with its primary operations in China. SmartHeat was the first China based company listed on NASDAQ in 2009.
In 2008, SmartHeat experienced continued rapid growth in a favorable market environment. Increased product sales were directly attributed to strong brand name, broader market acceptance of the Company’s products and services, deeper market penetration as well as economic expansion in China’s energy savings industry. SmartHeat’s advanced clean technology energy savings products significantly reduce heat energy waste, lower heat energy costs and reduce air pollution.
Record 2008 Revenue
Revenue of $32.7 million, up 146% compared to $13.3 million in 2007.
Revenue increase was primarily due to the significant increase in sales to new and existing customers.
Record 2008 Earnings
Net income of $6.34 million, up 203% compared to $2.09 million in 2007.
Net income increase was primarily due to rapid growth in revenue and reductions in costs from improved economies of scale and continuing efforts to increase the efficiency of operations.
Anticipates Significant Sales Growth in 2009 in a Favorable Market Environment
In addition to anticipated new customer orders through organic growth, SmartHeat is a beneficiary of China’s favorable environmental policies. China has allocated significant resources within its national economic stimulus plan to increase government spending on environmental protection related products and technology. SmartHeat stands to greatly benefit from these initiatives as the Company’s products directly address efficient energy use and reduction in air pollution.
Management Comments: 2008 Financial Results and 2009 Market Guidance
James Jun Wang, CEO of SmartHeat, commented: “Our audited 2008 financial results exceeded management’s financial performance targets as we laid out in early 2008. SmartHeat expects to experience significant product sales in 2009 as China has made reduction in air pollution a national priority through stronger environmental protection measures, greater funding efforts and broad mandates for clean technology energy savings equipment use. Based on significantly increased product orders received in the first two months in 2009 compared to the same period in 2008, SmartHeat anticipates strong product sales and earnings growth in 2009 from all sectors of our customer base: government, industrial, commercial and consumers. We look forward to another year of record earnings in 2009.”
