Three Months Ended September 30, 2013 Results

Total revenues for the third quarter of 2013 increased by $6.9 million, or 20.9%, to $39.9 million from $33.0 million for the same period of 2012. Revenues of paper cartons and other paper products increased by $1.1 million, or 3.1%, to $34.1 million for the third quarter of 2013 from $33.0 million for the same period of last year. Our paper mill, which went into production in June 2013, contributed $5.9 million, or 14.7% of total revenues, with sales volume of 16.4 thousand tons and average price of $357 per ton. The increase in both sales volume and average price contributed to the increase in revenues from paper cartons. The sales volume of paper cartons increased by 0.7 million square meters to 85.1 million square meter for the third quarter of 2013 from 84.4 million square meters for the same period of 2012. Average sales price increased 2.4% to approximately $0.40 per square meter for the third quarter of 2013 from approximately $0.39 per square meter in the third quarter of 2012. The increase in sales volume of paper cartons was mainly because of greater efforts by our sales team, despite challenging domestic and foreign economic environment.

Color cartons and flexo cartons accounted for 29.5% and 70.5% of revenues of paper cartons and other paper products for the third quarter of 2013, compared to 31.3% and 68.7%, respectively, for the same period of 2012.

Selling expenses increased by approximately $0.5 million, or 37.8%, to $1.9 million for the third quarter of 2013 from $1.4 million for the same period of 2012. The increase was mainly related to increase in freight expenses and increase in marketing expenses related to the paper mill in 2013.  As a percentage of revenues, selling expenses for the third quarter of 2013 increased to 4.8% from 4.2% for the same period of 2012.

General and administrative expenses decreased by $ 0.1 million, or 5.3%, to $2.8 million for the third quarter of 2013 from $2.9 million for the same period of 2012.

Income tax expense decreased to $0.2 million for the third quarter of 2013 compared to $0.4 million for the same period of 2012. The decrease in income tax expense was mainly attributable to the decrease in income before income tax expense and non controlling interest.

Selling expenses increased by $0.1 million, or 4.3%, to $4.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 from $4.0 million for the same period of 2012.
