18 Dec, 2015, 07:00 ET from China HGS Real Estate Inc.

HANZHONG, China, Dec. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- China HGS Real Estate Inc. (NASDAQ: HGSH) ("China HGS" or the "Company"), a leading regional real estate developer headquartered in Hanzhong City, Shaanxi Province, China, today filed its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year 2015 ended September 30, 2015 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. An electronic copy of the Annual Report on Form 10-K can be accessed on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.

Highlights for the Fiscal 2015

  • Total revenues for the fiscal 2015 were approximately $81.1 million, a decrease of approximately 35% from approximately $124.3million in fiscal 2014.
  • For the Company's long-term real estate development projects, the related revenue recognized from percentage of completion method was approximately $76.8 million, which accounted for 95% of total revenue in fiscal 2015 and decreased 23% from the revenue recognized from percentage completion method in fiscal 2014.
  • Net income for the fiscal 2015 totaled approximately $31.4 million, a decrease of approximately 3% from the net income of approximately $32.4 million in fiscal 2014.
  • Basic and diluted net earnings per share ("EPS") attributable to shareholders for the fiscal 2015 were $0.70, compared to $0.72 for the fiscal 2014.

"During the year, despite the overall slowing market and weakening economy in China, the Company has strived to manage its development and sales strategy and also to keep the costs down. I am pleased to see that our efforts have paid off. We were able to achieve a relatively high gross profit margin and maintain a relatively stable net income in the period," said Mr. Xiaojun Zhu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of China HGS.

"Looking forward to fiscal 2016, we expect some favorable factors to impact our future performance positively. First, the reform of residency registration policy newly announced by the central government would support continued urbanization. Secondly, a string of policies and measures successively introduced since last year to adjust and stimulate the real estate market, such as looser credit policy and more relaxed housing purchase restrictions, is beginning to take effect and is expected to drive the demand of first-time homebuyers as well as home upgraders. We remain cautiously optimistic about the prospect of the real estate property sector. As for regional strategy, the Company is confident to maintain its leading position and prominent market presence in the local region in the next few years," concluded Mr. Xiaojun Zhu.
