JINAN, China, Nov. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Pansoft Company Limited (Nasdaq: PSOF), a leading enterprise resource planning ("ERP") software and professional services developer for China's oil and gas companies, today announced selected unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2008, and provided an update of its guidance for the full year 2008.

Third Quarter 2008 Unaudited Financial Results Highlights

For the third quarter ended September 30, 2008, Pansoft reports the following unaudited financial results.

    --  Revenues increased 49.93% to $2.17 million, from $1.45 million in the
        third quarter 2007
    --  Gross profits increased 87.83% to $1.48 million, with gross margin of
        67.98%
    --  Operating income increased 75.44% to $1.27 million
    --  Operating margin of 58.53%, improved from 50.02% in the third quarter
        2007
    --  Net income increased 46.29% to $1.06 million, or $0.23 per fully
        diluted share

Commenting on the third quarter 2008 results, Wang Hu, Chairman of Pansoft Company Limited, said, "Pansoft continues to deliver solid revenue and profitability growth due to continuously strong market demand. As we enter the fourth quarter, we expect better than anticipated full-year 2008 revenues as our services business remains strong and is expected to grow at least 5%, year-over-year."

Sales revenue for the third quarter 2008 was $2.17 million, up 49.93% from $1.45 million in the same quarter last year. The rapid growth of sales revenue was mainly attributable to the increased demand from major customers such as Sinopec and its subsidiaries for large-scale software systems integration and development projects.

Gross profit for the quarter was $1.82 million, up 40.89% from $1.29 million in the same quarter last year.

Gross margin was 67.99%, up from 54.27% in the same quarter in 2007. The increase in gross profit margin was due to an increase in revenue combined with control over company expenses.

Operating expenses were $0.21 million, up 235% from $0.06 million in the third quarter 2007. The increase in operating expenses was primarily due to (1) an increase in administrative expenses related to the Company's initial public offering to list its common stock on the NASDAQ Capital Market on September 9, 2008 and (2) an increase in stock option expenses after the Company's initial public offering.

Operating income was $1.27 million, up 75.44% from $0.72 million in the third quarter 2007. Operating margin increased to 58.53%, from 50.02% a year ago.

Net income for the third quarter 2008 was $1.06 million, or $0.23 per diluted share, up from $0.73 million, or $0.17 per diluted share, in the same quarter last year. Fully diluted weighted average shares outstanding increased to 4.53 million for the period from 4.24 million in the same period in 2007, due to our initial public offering of 1,200,000 shares in September 2008.

Financial Condition

As of September 30, 2008, we had $10.17 million in cash and cash equivalents, no long term debt, total liabilities of $0.45 million and working capital of $13.09 million. Shareholders' equity was $13.84 million, compared to $4.62 million as of September 30, 2007. Cash flow used in operating activities was $0.49 million as of September 30, 2008, due to increases in accounts receivables and cash used in relation to inventory purchases. As the Company usually provides services to customers first and only collects the payment from them when projects are almost completed, accounts receivable rose to $3.16 million, up from $1.18 million at the end of fiscal 2007, primarily due to the overall increase in the scale of the Company's operations.

Full Year 2008 Guidance

Even with the current financial crisis, the Company believes the need for its outsourced services remains strong as the oil industry in China is less affected by the crisis. The Company does not expect the financial crisis to have a significant negative impact on its fourth quarter 2008 and 2009 revenue. Management believes that the Company's balance sheet is strong and that it possesses a competitive position in its market. Management also expects to achieve at least 5% growth over 2007.

"Pansoft has a good reputation for providing high-quality integration and customization services in a cost-effective and efficient manner for our customers. In all environments, we are positioned to exceed our customer needs, by expanding and evolving our services, while maintaining our focus on revenue growth and profitability," Mr. Wang noted.

Looking forward, management believes that demand for its services will continue to grow as the Company ramps up its development capacity. As a result of the Company's brand name and reputation in the ERP industry for delivering high quality services at competitive prices in China, management believes that it will continue to deliver solid revenue and profitability growth.
