Sino Agro Food, Inc. Reports Q2 2018 Results
Revenue of USD 34.0M; EPS of USD 0.02
August 14, 2018
GUANGZHOU, China— Sino Agro Food, Inc. (OTCQX: SIAF | OSE: SIAF-ME), a specialized investment company focused on protein food including seafood and cattle announces results for the quarter ending June 30, 2018.
Revenue from the sale of goods decreased USD 14.8M, or 31%, to USD 32.9M for the quarter ended June 30, 2018 when compared on a year over year basis (“YoY”). When compared to Q1 2018 (“QoQ”), revenue from the sale of goods during Q2 2018 increased USD 1.5M or 5%. Revenue from project development was USD 1.1M, compared to no revenue during Q2 2017.
First quarter gross profits totaled USD 5.4M for Q2 compared to USD 6.5M during Q2 2017 and USD 6.1M during Q1 2018.
Fully diluted earnings per share were USD .02 in the second quarter, the same as Q2 2017 (YoY) and versus USD .17 QoQ.
As stated last quarter, results reflect a reprioritization of businesses according to bottom line performance and guided by stricter cost control and capital expense rationale for each. From a revenue and gross profit perspective, results were in line with Q1.
Continuing in the first half of 2018:
|•||Businesses with negative gross margins had been either discontinued or markedly curtailed.|
|•||Capital expenditure for all businesses was reduced, most notably at SIAF’s equity investee Tri-way, which restricts project development to a percentage of cash flow and as justified by individual projects, until outside cash resources become available to continue development of aquafarms 4 and 5.|
|•||G&A expenses were trimmed USD 1.7M, or 29% from USD 5.8M in Q2 2017 to USD 4.1M in Q2 2018.|
These efforts have resulted in each standalone business stabilizing or improving. Integrated Cattle (SJAP) is self-sustaining, showing a small net operating profit in Q2. Seafood and Meat Trading has had consistent revenue with consistent gross margins over many quarters. The Organic Fertilizer (HSA) and the Plantation (JHST) segments are both exhibiting a growth trend expected to accelerate as past capital investments are beginning to generate returns and/or strategic partnerships are adding revenue without new capital investment.
As in the first quarter, because the benefits of business reprioritization had not yet overcome obligations incurred before the reprioritization, shares were issued to cover some current and non-current other payables that typically would have been covered through normal cash-flow levels in the past.
