China Shengda Packaging Group Inc. Announces Third Quarter 2012 Results

HANGZHOU, China, Nov. 13, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Shengda Packaging Group Inc. (NASDAQ: CPGI), a leading Chinese paper packaging manufacturer, today announced its financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2012.

"The third-quarter results were below our expectations due to slack demand resulting from macroeconomic headwinds faced by our customers. Although this led to a decline in both sales volume and revenues, we managed to control raw material costs, largely maintain pricing, and improve sales mix in favor of higher-margin color cartons. We therefore achieved higher gross margin both sequentially and on a year-over-year basis. However, we continued to face a challenging and competitive business environment that required increased sales and marketing spending making it harder to control operating expenses," said Mr. Daliang Teng, Chief Executive Officer of China Shengda Packaging.

Third Quarter 2012 Results

Revenues decreased 1.8% to $33.0 million from $33.6 million in the prior year period. The decrease was attributable to the decrease of sales volume, partially offset by the increase in average prices per square meter. Sales volume decreased by 3.2 million square meters, or 3.6%, to 84.4 million square meters for the three months ended September 30, 2012, from 87.6 million square meters for the same period of 2011. The decreased sales volume was mainly the result of the challenges associated with unfavorable domestic and foreign economic environment, which adversely affected the business of many customers. The average price per square meter increased by 1.9% to $0.39 for the three months ended September 30, 2012 from $0.38 in the same period of 2011.

Color cartons accounted for 31.3% of the revenues and flexo cartons accounted for 68.7% of the revenues, compared to 28.3% and 71.7%, respectively, for the same period of 2011. Average per square meter prices for the color cartons and flexo cartons for the three months ended September 30, 2012 were approximately $0.41 and $0.38, respectively, as compared to approximately $0.44 and $0.36, respectively, for the same period of 2011.

Consumer and industrial goods manufacturing sectors are the Company's principal markets. The major customers remained home appliances and electronics manufacturers and food, beverage and cigarette manufacturers in the YRD, which accounted for 23.6% and 36.4%, respectively, of the revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2012.

Gross profit remained largely the same at $6.0 million as in the same period of 2011. Gross profit from flexo cartons decreased 1.5% to $3.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, from $3.9 million for the same period of 2011. Gross profit from color cartons increased 7.4% to $2.1 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, from $2.0 million for the same period of 2011. Gross margin was 18.2% for the three months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to 17.7% for the same period of 2011. The flat gross profit was mainly due to the 2.4% decrease in cost of goods sold associated with decreased sales volume compared to the same period last year.

Selling expenses increased 25.4% to $1.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, from $1.1 million for the same period of 2011. Such increase resulted mainly from staff cost and freight. As a percentage of revenues, selling expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2012 increased to 4.2%, from 3.3% for the same period of 2011.

General and administrative expenses increased 24.9% to $2.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, from $2.4 million in the year-ago quarter, as a result of increasing staff cost, office and travelling expenses. As a percentage of revenues, general and administrative expenses for the three months ended September 30, 2012 increased to 8.9%, as compared to 7.0% for the same period of 2011.

Income tax expense was largely flat at $0.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012.

Net income attributable to common stockholders decreased 41.1% to $1.4 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, from $2.3 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, in the same period of 2011.

Nine Months Ended September 30, 2012

Revenue for the first nine months of 2012 was $98.2 million, up 5.4% from revenue of $93.2 million for the first nine months of 2011, mainly due to increased sales volume. The sales volume increased 7.6 million square meters, or 3.2%, to 249.0 million square meters from 241.4 million square meters during the same period of 2011. Gross profit was $17.3 million, compared to $19.2 million for the nine months of 2011. Gross margin was 17.7%, compared to 20.6% for the first nine months of 2011. Net income attributable to the Company's common stockholders was $4.5 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, compared to $8.0 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, for the same period a year ago.

Financial Condition

As of September 30, 2012, China Shengda Packaging had cash and cash equivalents of $16.7 million and restricted cash of $19.3 million. Accounts receivable were $35.7 million as of September 30, 2012 compared with $36.8 million as of year-end 2011. Working capital was $46.3 million compared to $50.5 million in the prior year period.  Shareholders' equity was $104.1 million, compared with $98.8 million as of December 31, 2011. 

Net cash provided by operating activities was $22.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to $7.5 million net cash used in operating activities for the same period of 2011. The provision of cash in the first nine months of 2012 was attributable to the net income of $4.6 million, adjusted by depreciation and amortization expenses of $3.3 million, and a net increase in cash from working capital items of $14.1 million

Net cash used in investing activities was $17.8 million for the nine months ended September  30, 2012, as compared to $4.0 million for the same period of 2011. The $17.8 million net cash used in investing activities during the nine months ended  September 30 was attributable to the purchases of property, plant and equipment and prepayment paid for construction in progress, primarily related to the machinery purchases and plant construction of the Company's paper mill.

Net cash used in financing activities was $6.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to $2.6 million for the same period of 2011. During the nine months ended September 30, 2012, the Company received proceeds from borrowings amounting to $11.2 million, repaid loans amounting to $13.3 million, and deposited restricted cash amounting to $5.0 million for the loans as collateral.

Recent Events

On October 15, 2012, China Shengda Packaging announced that that its Board of Directors has received a preliminary, non-binding proposal (the "Proposal") from its Chairman, Mr. Nengbin Fang ("Mr. Fang"), in which Mr. Fang has offered to acquire all of the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock he and his family currently do not own in a going-private transaction at a proposed price of $1.40 per share to be paid in cash. According to the Proposal, Mr. Fang intends to fund the acquisition with a combination of debt and equity financing. Currently, Mr. Fang and his family collectively beneficially own approximately 54.03% of the Company's common stock.

On November 2, 2012, the Company announced that it has regained compliance with the minimum bid-price requirement of the NASDAQ Stock Market  for continued listing of the Company's common stock.

Business Outlook

For fiscal 2012, China Shengda Packaging maintains its expectations for revenues of between $115 million and $125 million. However, the Company now expects net income of between $5.5 million and $6.5 million and diluted earnings per share of between $0.14 and $0.17, lower than its previous estimates of net income of between $6.5 million and $7.5 million, and diluted earnings per share of $0.17 and $0.19.

The Company foresees increasing raw material costs remaining a challenge while it looks to monitor its operating efficiency more closely and promote the sale of higher-price and higher margin color cartons. In an environment of muted demand from its client base as industries in the Yangtze River Delta experience modest growth in domestic demand and reduced export demand for their products, the Company is addressing its challenges with better service levels, keen prices, new products and robust marketing efforts. The costs associated with these efforts are expected to reduce profitability for the remainder of the year.
