Hong Kong, (May 21, 2021) – Value Exchange International, Inc. (OTCQB: VEII), a provider of information technology services for businesses in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Manila, today announced improving select financial results for the first quarter of 2021. All financial numbers are in U.S. dollars.

Chief Executive Officer Kenneth Tan said, “Our company continues to make progress in improving key financial results. With the recent investment by GigWorld, Inc., a public company affiliated with entrepreneur Heng Fai Ambrose Chan, in our company, we are exploring ways to expand strategic relationships as part of our ongoing efforts to improve our business and financial performance as well as expand our information technology offerings and geographic markets. The previously announced beta test for smart vending machines in a major Chinese gas service station chain is another example of our efforts to expand our customer base and service-product offerings.”

 

Financial Summary

 

·Net revenue: Our net revenues were $2,203,772 for first quarter 2021, as compared to $8,202,911 for the same period in 2020, a decrease of $5,999,139 or 73.1%. This decrease was due in part to the Company focusing on higher profit work and not the pursuit of lower profit work that increased gross revenues without providing higher net revenues as well as the usual and customary fluctuations in customer demand for Company services. The Company is seeking to grow both its gross and net revenues, but with the emphasis on seeking higher profit margin work. 

 

·Gross profit: Gross profit for first quarter 2021 was $737,540 or 33.5% of net revenues, as compared to $488,156 or 6.0% of net revenues for the same period in 2020, an increase of $249,384 or 51.1%.  

 

·Income from operations: Our income from operations totaled $305,381 for first quarter 2021, as compared to $53,486 for the same period in 2020, an increase of $251,895 or 471.0%.  

 

·Net income: We had a net income of $376,611 for the first quarter of 2021, compared to $136,468 for the same period in 2020, an increase of $240,143 or 176.0%.  

 

·Basic and diluted net income per share was $0.01 for first quarter of 2021.
