Nov 12, 2015, 17:00 ET from Hollysys Automation Technologies, Ltd

BEIJING, Nov. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Hollysys Automation Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: HOLI) ("Hollysys" or the "Company"), a leading provider of automation and control technologies and applications in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the fiscal year 2016 first quarter ended on September 30, 2015 (see attached tables). The management of Hollysys, stated:

"In industrial automation business, during this quarter, we continuously insisted in executing our strategies to maintain the gross margin by penetrating the high-end industrial automation market and providing more highly customized solutions such as power, chemical, food & beverage, pharmaceutical and environmental protection related industries, while offering diversified value software packages to the end users for saving the cost and improving their efficiency. Additionally, we were focusing on reducing waste emission and environment protection area, building a strong after-sale department and set long-term goals on improving after-sale services while control the contracts qualities internally which are all contribute to keep our profits running in relatively healthy growth cycle. Even though in the short term we are under pressure giving the current weak external environment, we will still try our best to gradually recover and perform better in future.

Going forward, we will continue to expand our sales force and allocate more resources to factory automation, penetrate further into high-end market while increasing market share in pharmaceutical industry, expand our products supply such as software and turnkey solution, leveraging our advanced technologies, experienced professionals, profound industry expertise, and customization & innovation capability.

In rail transportation, we signed contract to provide the ground-based high-speed rail signaling system and equipment to Chongqing – Wanzhou high-speed rail line; we also won the bidding to provide the ground-based high-speed rail signaling system and equipment to Xi'anChengdu high speed rail line (Xi'an - Jiangyou section Sichuan Area). We are quite confident of the steady rail revenue and backlog performance. As China is continuously investing large scale on building railway for the next five years, we will still benefit from the policy of 13th five-year-plan. Furthermore, we also worked to expand our rail products such as track circuit and interlocking system. We have finished one year testing of track circuit and got the official permit from authority to enter track circuit market which is a another sizable market, with potential revenue contribution from track circuit in the coming years.

For subway business, we recently won the bidding to provide supervisory control and data acquisition system (SCADA) to Kunming Subway Line 3 which shows our next step of penetration into second tier cities. We are also following both domestic and overseas opportunities in both SCADA and subway signaling projects. We will continue to deliver quality works and work closely with subway authorities in the future to promote our SCADA system and future subway signaling technologies both in China and abroad.

With China's tremendous rail and subway construction nationwide as well as "one belt one road" policy, there is going to be an exciting prospect for Hollysys both domestically and abroad. As a well-recognized rail signaling system provider, we are confident that with our strong R&D capability, leading technologies, solid execution and reliable products, Hollysys will continue to penetrate into China and the world's vast rail and subway market and achieve significant results.

In the mechanical and electrical solution segment, revenue declined for this quarter due to the projects delayed in particular area and with impact on seasonal lumpiness. However, we are still tracing some large new orders and hope this business sector could be performance better. In the long run, we achieved solid local market position, promoting directly sales with more offices and service centers expanding overseas and doing more EPC projects. We are also setting up joint venture companies to develop our business, as well as cooperate with large enterprises, plus abundant customer resources and strong execution in Southeast Asia, Middle East and expanding into India and other regions of the world. For the overseas industrial automation and rail transportation expansion, we are sending qualified and experienced engineers from China to overseas, and recruiting local engineers to expand our overseas team. With our proprietary technologies and products, industry expertise and strong competitive advantages, we will continue to make exciting achievements in the international market in both industrial and rail transportation fields, and to create value for our shareholders."

The gross margin fluctuation was mainly due to the different revenue mix with different margin. The GAAP overall gross margin which includes non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles was 39.1% for the three months ended September 30, 2015, as compared to 38.2% for the same period of the prior year. The GAAP gross margin for integrated contracts, product sales, and service rendered were 37.1%, 52.6% and 65.5% for the three months ended September 30, 2015, as compared to 34.8%, 79.2% and 61.6% for the same period of the prior year respectively.

Selling expenses were $6.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015, representing a decrease of $0.2 million or 2.2% compared to $6.8 million for the same quarter of the prior year. Presented as a percentage of total revenues, selling expenses were 5.3% and 4.8% for the three months ended September 30, 2015, and 2014, respectively.

General and administrative expenses, excluding non-cash share-based compensation expenses (non-GAAP G&A expenses), were $8.9 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2015, representing an decrease of 0.4 million, or 4.3%, as compared to $9.3 million for the same period of the prior year. Presented as a percentage of total revenues, non-GAAP G&A expenses were 7.1% and 6.6% for quarters ended September 30, 2015 and 2014 respectively. The GAAP G&A expenses which include the non-cash share-based compensation expenses were $9.8 million and $9.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

The VAT refunds and government subsidies were $5.1 million for three months ended September 30, 2015, as compared to $6.4 million for the same period in the prior year, representing a $1.3 million or 19.8% decrease which primarily due to the decrease of the VAT refunds for $1.2 million.

The income tax expenses and the effective tax rate were $4.7 million and 12.9% for the three months ended September 30, 2015, as compared to $7.4 million and 21.2% for comparable prior year period. When excluding the impact of non-GAAP adjustments on the income before income taxes, the effective tax rate would have been 14.1% for the current quarter and 21.2% for the comparable prior year period. The variance was due to different EIT rates were applied for the two comparable quarters. During the first quarter of FY 2015, Beijing Hollysys & Hangzhou Hollysys are in the process of applying their HNTE certification which, once received, will permit the two companies to use a preferential EIT rate of 15% for calendar years ended December 31, 2014 to December 31, 2016. The HNTE certification was later received in the second quarter of FY 2015. Hence, for the first quarter of FY2015, the Company applied the statutory tax rate of 25% to calculate the current and deferred tax for Beijing Hollysys & Hangzhou Hollysys as oppose to 15% used in the first quarter of FY 2016.

The non-GAAP net income attributable to Hollysys, which excludes non-cash share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangibles and acquisition-related consideration fair value adjustments was $27.3 million or $0.45 per diluted share based on 60.6 million shares outstanding for the three months ended September 30, 2015. This represents a 0.5% increase over the $27.2 million or $0.46 per share based on 59.1 million shares outstanding reported in the comparable prior year period. On a GAAP basis, net income attributable to Hollysys was $30.3 million or $0.50 per diluted share representing an increase of 11.7% over the $27.1 million or $0.46 per diluted share reported in the comparable prior year period.

Non-GAAP Measures

In evaluating our results, the non-GAAP measures of "Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses", "Non-GAAP net income attributable to Hollysys Automation Technologies Ltd. stockholders", "Non-GAAP basic earnings per share", and "Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share" serve as additional indicators of our operating performance and not as a replacement for other measures in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We believe these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors, as they exclude the non-cash share-based compensation expenses, which is calculated based on the number of shares or options granted and the fair value as of the grant date, amortization of acquired intangibles, acquisition-related consideration fair value adjustments and convertible bond related fair value adjustment. They will not result in any cash inflows or outflows. We believe that using non-GAAP measures help our shareholders to have a better understanding of our operating results and growth prospects. In addition, given the business nature of Hollysys, it has been a common practice for investors to use such non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company.

The following table provides a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP measures to the non-GAAP measures for the periods indicated:
