NEW YORK, March 31, 2010 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- SmartHeat Inc.

Fiscal Year 2009 Financial Performance
 
Revenues were $82.56 million in fiscal year 2009 compared to $32.68 million in 2008, a 153% increase. The significant revenue increase was due to significant sales growth across all product lines as a result of:
 
 
·
Increasing our traditional heat supply sales as a result of growth in the China domestic infrastructure construction industry, accounting for $37.62 million or 45.6% of total sales; and
 
 
·
Adding new customers in the chemical, engineering, electric power and metal smelting industries, accounting for $25.42 million or 30.7% of our total sales; and
 
 
·
Rising heat meter sales, accounting for $7.98 million or approximately 9.7% of total sales.
 
Gross profit was $29.10 million in fiscal year 2009 compared to $10.96 million in 2008, a 165.51% increase. Gross profit increased primarily due to the decreased cost of goods sold as a percentage of sales while our sales continued to increase.
 
Operating expenses were $10.92 million in fiscal year 2009 compared to $3.42 million in 2008, a 219% increase. Operating expenses increased because of the higher general and administrative expenses incurred as a result of our growth in sales and production and fees and expenses associated with becoming a public company in 2008.
 
Operating income was $18.18 million in fiscal year 2009 compared to $7.54 million in 2008, a 141.11% increase. Operating income increased as a result of continued economies of scale in production costs combined with the rapid growth in revenues and improved operating efficiency.
 
Net income was $15.44 million in fiscal year 2009 compared to $6.34 million in 2008, a 144% increase. Earnings per share were $0.58 in fiscal year 2009 compared to $0.29 in 2008 a 100% increase. In addition to the increased revenue and incomefromoperations, net income and EPS both benefited from a decrease in the tax rate during the year from 18% to 15%.
