CARLSTADT, N.J., Nov. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Jinpan International Ltd (Nasdaq: JST), a leading designer, manufacturer, and distributor of cast resin transformers for voltage distribution equipment, today announced unaudited consolidated financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011.  

Net sales for the third quarter were $66.6 million, a 49.3% increase from $44.6 million in the same period last year.  The increase in third quarter sales was the result of higher volume transformer sales in China and strong international wind transformers sales compared to the prior year period.  In the third quarter, domestic sales accounted for $59.1 million, or 88.7% of net sales, compared to $42.2 million, or 94.6% of net sales in the same period last year. Net sales outside of China were $7.5 million, or 11.3% of net sales, compared to $2.4 million, or 5.4 % of net sales in the same period last year.  

Cast resin transformers (excluding those for wind power applications), switch gears and unit substations represented $56.8 million, or 85.3% of net sales in the third quarter, while wind energy products represented $9.8 million, or 14.7% of net sales in the third quarter.

Gross profit in the 2011 third quarter increased 55.6% to $24.9 million from $16.0 million in the same period last year.  Third quarter 2011 gross profit margin was 37.5% compared to 35.9% in the prior year period. The Company reaffirms its guidance of full year gross margin ranging from 36%-38%.

Selling and administrative expenses in the third quarter were $16.5 million, or 24.8% of net sales, compared to $11.6 million, or 26.0% of net sales in the same period last year.  This percentage decrease was primarily due to the strong increase in net sales.  Operating income increased 90.9% to $8.4 million, or 12.7% of net sales, from $4.4 million, or 9.9% of net sales in the same period last year.

Net income for the third quarter increased to $8.4 million, or $0.51 per diluted share, from $4.4 million, or $0.27 per diluted share, in the same period last year.

Mr. Zhiyuan Li, Chief Executive Officer of Jinpan, commented, "We are pleased to announce solid third quarter financial results which reflect continued strong core performance across both our domestic and international segments. Our effort to increase overall sales of higher margin, customized products has been a major initiative for Jinpan in recent quarters and is reflected in our strong results for this quarter.  Our domestic business was driven by the continuing trend of higher volume of customized transformer orders. Demand for our products increased, because many state-owned enterprises and private businesses in China expanded their operations resulting in greater demand for cast resin transformers and related products.  Our international business enjoyed steady demand in the third quarter fueled in part by rising wind transformer orders from both the U.S. and Europe."

"As of September 30th of this year, our backlog increased to approximately $100 million compared to $91 million at the end of June.  Based on current order trends, we expect both domestic and international order flow to remain healthy in the fourth quarter.  Consequently, we are raising our full year guidance."  

"Our improved outlook for both top line and bottom line financials reflects strong demand for our products and provides us with greater confidence as we progressively execute our expansion initiatives going forward.  We continue to leverage our strong research, design and engineering capabilities to increase our market share of high-end customized products, which in turn can generate higher gross profit margins and strengthen our foundation for future growth."

Balance Sheet

As of September 30, 2011, the Company had $13.8 million in cash, cash equivalents and restricted cash compared to $28.6 million at December 31, 2010.  Inventory increased to $44.8 million as of September 30, 2011, from $29.5 million on December 31, 2010, due to anticipated order demand.  Accounts receivable on September 30, 2011 totaled $110.3 million, compared to $75.7 million on December 31, 2010. Total bank loans outstanding at September 30, 2011 increase to $28.5 million as compared to $13.7 million at December 31, 2010.

Financial Outlook

As a result of the Company's third quarter performance coupled with current favorable domestic and international order trends, the Company is raising its financial forecast for the year.  For full year 2011, the company anticipates net sales growth of 48%-50% to $213 million-$216 million and net income growth to approximately 75%-80% to $23.4-$24.1 million.  The Company maintains its gross profit margin estimate of 36-38% and believes that international sales will account for approximately 12%-14% of full year sales.
