China TransInfo Announces Second-Quarter 2012 Results

2012-08-14 06:10 ET - News Release

Backlog increased to approximately $216 million

BEIJING, Aug. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China TransInfo Technology Corp. (NASDAQ: CTFO) ("China TransInfo" or the "Company"), a leading provider of comprehensive intelligent transportation systems ("ITS") in China through its affiliate, China TransInfo Technology Group Co., Ltd. (the "Group Company"), today reported financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2012.

Second-Quarter 2012 Highlights:

  • Revenues were $31.4 million, a decrease of 14.8% year over year
  • Net income was $2.4 million, or $0.09 per diluted share
  • Adjusted net income was $2.6 million, or $0.10 per diluted share(*)
  • Backlog increased by $22 million to approximately $216 million
  • Entered into a merger agreement with TransCloud Company Limited and TransCloud Acquisition, Inc.

"During the second-quarter, our top line growth continued to vary due to the timing of contract progress and execution, however, we signed $54 million in new contracts, and our backlog increased by 11% to approximately $216 million, indicating a stronger book of business for China TransInfo," commented Mr. Shudong Xia. "In addition, we are pleased to see a year-over-year improvement in our gross margin, owing to our cost-effective project execution initiatives intended to optimize hardware purchasing practices and labor management. We maintained solid profitability despite the lower revenue level and higher tax rate. We remain committed to growing our business alongside the favorable dynamics of China's transportation market."

Second-Quarter 2012 Results

For the second quarter ended June 30, 2012, revenues were $31.4 million, a 14.8% decrease from $36.9 million in the year-ago quarter.  The decrease in revenue was driven primarily by a 13.2% decrease in transportation revenue, mainly due to fluctuations in the progress of existing contracts and execution in the ITS business.  Revenue from products and applications in the transportation business sector was $29.8 million, or 94.9% of total revenue, compared to $34.3 million, or 93.1% of total revenue, in the year-ago quarter.  The remainder of revenue derived from other business categories.

Gross profit decreased 7.2% to $9.8 million in the second quarter of 2012, as compared to $10.6 million in the year-ago quarter. The modest decrease was attributed to the decrease in net sales of our ITS business. However, the gross margin in the second quarter of 2012 increased to 31.3% from 28.7% in the year-ago quarter, mainly due to higher-margin transportation projects executed during the quarter versus the year-ago quarter, owing to improvements in hardware purchasing practice and labor management associated with these projects.

Selling expenses were $1.3 million, as compared to $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2011, mainly due to our enhanced efforts in bidding for new contracts. General and administrative expenses were $6.1 million, as compared to $6.4 million in the year-ago quarter. The decrease was primarily due to lower sales-related bonus payments.  Total operating expenses rose 0.6% to $7.4 million from the year-ago quarter. Operatingincome decreased 25.4% to $2.4 million from $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2011.

In the second quarter, subsidy income was $0.8 million, as compared to $0.06 million in the year-ago quarter.

Net income decreased 15.6% to $2.4 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared to $2.8 million, or $0.11 per diluted share, in the year-ago quarter. Adjusted net income, which excludes $0.25 million in non-cash, stock-based compensation expense and $0.01 million in intangible amortization expense from acquisitions, decreased 16.5% to $2.6 million, or $0.10 per diluted share, compared to $3.1 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the comparable period of 2011(*).  Weighted average diluted shares outstanding increased to 25,320,592 shares from 25,273,195 shares in the year-ago quarter.

(*) Please refer to the table at the end of this press release for a reconciliation of net income and diluted earnings per share ("EPS") to exclude non-cash stock-based compensation and amortization expense of intangibles from acquisitions.

Six-Month Results

For the six months ended June 30, 2012, net sales were $60.3 million, a 17.8% decrease from $73.4 million during the same period of 2011. Gross profit decreased 7.5% to $19.4 million from $21.0 million.  Operating income declined 30.8% to $5.0 million from $7.3 million in the first six months of 2011.  Net income decreased 17.1% to $4.8 million, or $0.19 per diluted share compared to net income of $5.8 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, in the first six months of 2011. Adjusted net income, which excludes non-cash, stock-based compensation expense of $0.5 million and amortization expense of intangibles from acquisitions of $0.02 million, decreased 17.9% to $5.3 million, or $0.21 per diluted share, compared to $6.4 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, in the first six months of 2011.(*) Weighted average diluted shares outstanding increased to 25,295,931 shares from 25,273,317 shares in the first six months of 2011.

(*) Please refer to the table at the end of this press release for a reconciliation of net income and diluted EPS to exclude non-cash stock-based compensation and amortization expense of intangibles from acquisitions.

Financial Condition

As of June 30, 2012, cash and cash equivalents totaled $26.9 million, compared to $45.0 million as of December 31, 2011. For the quarter ended June 30, 2012, cash flow from operations was an outflow of $5.0 million.

Business Outlook

China TransInfo has successfully developed a commercial vehicle monitoring and control platform for the Ministry of Transport. To date, the Company has recorded more than 1.51 million vehicles registered on the platform and approximately 420,000 active users. In addition, the Company's variable interest entity, Beijing Zhangcheng Science and Technology Co., Ltd. (Palmcity), released an updated version of its Android-based Real-Time Traffic Information application with advanced features including enabling user sharing and searching of traffic information via Sina Weibo, the most popular  social-networking platform in China. In addition, Palmcity officially released its iOS-based Real-Time Traffic Information application V3.1 for iPhone users on July 13, 2012.

Mr. Xia continued, "At the end of the second quarter of 2012, our sales backlog was approximately $216 million, compared to $194 million at the end of the first quarter. We signed roughly $54 million in contracts during the second quarter.  For 2012, we continue to expect revenues of approximately $170 million and adjusted net income of approximately $14 million, excluding non-cash, stock-based compensation expense and amortization expense of intangibles from acquisitions."

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Information

GAAP results for the three months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011 include non-cash share based compensation and amortization of intangible assets from acquisitions. To supplement the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company has provided non-GAAP financial information, which are adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per share, excluding the impact of these items in this release. The Company's management believes that these non-GAAP measures provide investors with a better understanding of how the results relate to the Company's historical performance. The additional adjusted information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financials. The adjusted financial information that the Company provides also may differ from the adjusted information provided by other companies. Management believes that these adjusted financial measures are useful to investors because they exclude non-cash expenses that management excludes when it internally evaluates the performance of the Company's business and makes operating decisions, including internal budgeting, and performance measurement, as these measures provide a consistent method of comparison to historical periods. As a result, the provision of these adjusted measures allows investors to evaluate the Company's performance using the same methodology and information as that used by the Company's management. Moreover, management believes that these adjusted measures reflect the essential operating activities of the Company.  Non-GAAP measures are subject to inherent limitations because they do not include all of the expenses included under GAAP and because they involve the exercise of judgment of which charges are excluded from the adjusted financial measure.  However, the Company's management compensates for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of the items excluded. A reconciliation of adjustments to GAAP results appears in Table 1 below.
