·Adjusted net income attributable to Yongye, which excludes non-cash expense related to the amortization of the acquired Hebei customer list, was $23.1 million, or $0.38 per diluted share, compared to an adjusted net income attributable to Yongye of $0.1 million, or a loss of $0.01 per diluted share, in the same period of 2013.*

·The Company collected $263.6 million from its distributors during the first quarter of 2014.

·Operating cash flow was $101.2 million, compared to $141.1 million in the same period of 2013.

 

Mr. Zishen Wu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yongye International, stated, “The first quarter was highlighted by the introduction of our new water soluble humic acid product, which improves the soil structure and the ability of fertilizer and water retention and enhances crop resistance against drought, freezing, diseases, and stalk leaning. Based on how this product is used, the first quarter represents peak season for the water soluble humic acid product. Accordingly, the initial demand for the product was quite strong as first quarter sales were $79.5 million, or 52.2% of total sales. While we would not expect this level of sales for the remainder of the year due to seasonality, this new water soluble humic acid product is a complementary addition to our product portfolio, despite the product carrying lower margins than our other products. Another factor of the year over year growth in the first quarter of this year is that we had a low-performing first quarter in 2013, with significant decreases in revenue and shipments compared to the first quarter of 2012.”

 

Mr. Wu continued, “While China’s macroeconomic growth prospects remain unstable, we will continue to mitigate market risk with strong execution. We are reiterating our previously provided 2014 guidance of total shipments in the range of $800 million to $850 million and the expansion of our branded retailer network to 36,500 by year-end.”

 

First Quarter 2014 Financial Results

 

Sales increased by $107.1 million, or 236.5%, to $152.3 million in the first quarter of 2014, from $45.3 million for the same period of 2013. The increase in revenue was primarily due to the expansion of our business and the introduction of the new water soluble humic acid product. In the first quarter of 2014, $71.0 million, or 46.6% of the total sales, were from liquid crop nutrient, $79.5 million, or 52.2% of the total sales, were from the new water soluble humic acid product, and $1.8 million, or 1.2% of the total sales, were from powder animal nutrient products. Of our liquid crop nutrient products, the two products for crop seeds and roots contributed $30.9 million, or 43.4% of total liquid crop nutrient sales, while the regular crop nutrient product contributed $40.1 million, or 56.6% of total liquid crop nutrient sales. During the first quarter of 2014, the number of branded retailers increased from 36,100 at the end of 2013 to 36,200.
