Second Quarter 2012 Financial Results

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $31.6 million, an increase of $2.6 million, or 9%, from the same period a year ago. Sales of coated pre-stressed steel materials, including rare earth coated products, were $22.9 million, up 16% compared to $19.7 million in the second quarter of 2011 due to overall higher demand of coated pre-stressed steel materials in the market.

Gross profit decreased from $6.8 million to $2.2 million, a 67% year-over-year decline. Consolidated gross margin fell from 23.3% to 7.1%. Gross profit and gross margin were down mainly due to the price decreases of some of our products because of the continued tough market conditions in the infrastructure sector in China.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2012 were 8.9% and 6.0% for coated pre-stressed steel products and for plain surface pre-stressed steel products, respectively.

Selling and distribution expenses decreased 23% to $0.2 million due to successful efforts by the Company to reduce costs. General and administrative expenses increased 48% to $1.3 million mainly due to the increase in R&D expenses. Operating income decreased 87% to $0.7 million in the second quarter of 2012 with operating margin of 2.3% compared to $5.6 million and 19.2%, respectively, in the second quarter of 2011.

Net income attributable to controlling interest fell 98% to $0.1 million in the second quarter of 2012 from $3.6 million in the year-ago period. Earnings per share were $0.003 versus $0.18 a year ago. The weighted average diluted shares outstanding was 19.9 million compared to 20.0 million a year ago as a result of 69,782 shares repurchased by Ossen as of June 30, 2012.  

First Half 2012 Financial Results

Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012 were $53.9 million, down 11% compared to $60.8 million in the same period a year ago.

Operating expenses were $2.7 million, up 57% from $1.7 million in the first six months of 2011, driven by the $1.2 million year-over-year increase in general and administrative expenses. Operating income and operating margin for the first half of 2012 were $2.1 million and 3.9% compared to $14.1 million and 23.2%, respectively, for the first half of 2011.

Net income attributable to controlling shareholders was $0.3 million, down from $9.5 million in the first six months of 2011. Earnings per share was $0.02 for the six months ended June 30, 2012.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flows

Ossen had approximately $19.2 million of cash and restricted cash at June 30, 2012 compared to $21.3 million at December 31, 2011. Total accounts receivable on June 30, 2012 increased slightly to $50.0 million from $48.0 million on December 31, 2011. The average accounts receivable days sales outstanding were 145 days in the second quarter of 2012 compared to 97 days in the second quarter of 2011. Inventories were down from $17.2 million at December 31, 2011 to $15.0 million at June 30, 2012. Total working capital was $72.3 million at June 30, 2012 compared to $70.8 million at December 31, 2011.

For the second quarter of 2012, the Company used approximately $15.5 million of cash flows from operations as compared to $7.0 million in the second quarter of 2011. The primary reason for the increase was higher notes receivable balance and advance to suppliers at June 30, 2012.

The Company generated approximately $15.2 million of cash flows from financing activities in the second quarter of 2012 as compared to $7.8 million in the second quarter of 2011. The increase was mainly due to increased proceeds from short-term bank loans and increased proceeds from notes payable during the period.  

In November 2011, the Company's Board of Directors approved a share repurchase program for up to 500,000 shares of the Company's American Depositary Receipts ("ADSs") through May 2012. On May 31, 2012 the program was further extended for another 12 months to May 31, 2013. During the three months ended June 30, 2012, the Company repurchased 55,766 shares of ADSs from the secondary market at an average price of $0.99 per share. 

Business Updates and Outlook

1.  As of the end of August, Ossen has collected $37.1 million, or approximately 77% of the $48.0 million accounts receivable balance at December 31, 2011. Management expects to collect the remaining balance in the near future.

2.  According to government announcements and news release from major media channels, from May 2012 the number of domestic investment projects reviewed and approved by China's National Development and Reform Commission stood above 200 in each month. Most of these approved projects are in the infrastructure sector. Such trend is expected to continue and is widely viewed as part of the actions from Chinese central government to boost economic growth.
