CER Doubles Revenue to $4.1 Million in First Quarter 2010

Mar 03, 2011, 15:48 ET from China Energy Recovery Inc.

SHANGHAI, March 3, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China Energy Recovery Inc. (CGYV.PK) ("CER"), an international leader in the design, fabrication and installation of waste heat recovery systems, today announced financial results for the first three months of fiscal 2010, ending March 31, 2010, as compared with restated figures for the same period in 2009.

Highlights for the quarter (YoY)

  • Revenues increased 213% to $4.1 million.
  • Gross profit increased 397% to $618,000.
  • Net income increased 119% to $189,000.

First quarter 2010 results

Revenues for the three-month period ended March 31, 2010, were $4.1 million, up from a restated $1.31 million in the same period a year ago.

Gross profit in the quarter increased to $617,576 or 15.1 percent of sales, compared to a restated $124,360 or 9.5 percent of sales in the same period a year ago. The company's operating loss narrowed considerably in the period to $538,513 compared to a restated loss of $824,027 in the same quarter a year ago.

Benefiting from increases in non-operating income, net income increased to $188,579 or $0.01 per share compared to a restated net loss of $984,162 or $0.03 per share in the same period a year ago.

"Revenue growth in the quarter is an indication of how the market is growing for CER's waste heat recovery technology and systems," CER Chief Executive Officer Qinqhuan Wu said. "In the first quarter of 2010, CER's production constraints limited its growth, a condition that persisted through fiscal 2010 while our new manufacturing facility was under construction. With the opening of our new facility in the fourth quarter of 2010, CER's ability to take on new contracts at an increased rate improved materially."

Restated results for the first three months of fiscal 2009

CER's 2010 filings have been delayed in the transition to a new independent auditor, PricewaterhouseCoopers, which has carried out a review of CER's financials that resulted in the restatement of certain financial figures for the three-month period ended March 31, 2009.

Total revenue of $1,310,027 for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 represents an additional $47,779 to the previously reported $1,262,248. Gross profit of $124,360 for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 represents an additional $62,467 to the previously reported $61,893. Operating loss of $824,027 for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 is $654,671 less than the previously reported loss of $1,478,698. Net loss of $984,162 for the quarter ended March 31, 2009 is $486,048 less than the previously reported loss of $1,470,210.

What is Waste Heat Energy Recovery?

Industrial facilities release significant amounts of excess heat into the atmosphere in the form of hot exhaust gases or high-pressure steam. Energy recovery is the process of recovering as much as two-thirds of that wasted energy and converting it into usable heat energy or electricity, dramatically lowering energy costs. Energy recovery systems are also capable of lowering heat pollution and capturing harmful pollutants that would otherwise be released into the environment. It is estimated that if energy currently wasted by all the U.S. industrial facilities could be recovered, it could produce power equivalent to 20% of U.S. electricity generation capacity without burning any additional fossil fuel, and could help many industries to meet stringent environmental regulations.
