HANZHONG, China, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China HGS Real Estate Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CAHS) ("China HGS" or "the Company"), a leading residential property developer in Hanzhong, China, today raised its financial guidance for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2010, signaling stronger than expected growth in the local residential property market.
China HGS expects revenues for the fiscal year ended September 30, 2010 to be approximately 47.5 million (RMB325 million) to $49.0 million (RMB335 million) and net income of $15.5 million (RMB105 million) to $16.0 million (RMB110 million), higher than the Company's earlier guidance of $46.4 million (RMB317.0 million) and $13.0 million (RMB88.7 million), respectively. The Company expects fully diluted earnings to be in the range of $0.39 to $0.40 per share, based on current weighted average shares outstanding. China HGS's guidance has been increased to reflect stronger than expected growth in ASPs (Average Selling Prices), which increased approximately $14.6 (RMB100) to $43.9 (RMB300) per square meter in January 2010, based on a complete evaluation of its major projects in Hanzhong City and Yang County.
"During the second quarter of fiscal year 2010, we are experiencing robust growth in ASP's of our real estate projects and expect these prices to continue to trend higher in 2010," commented Mr. Xiaojun Zhu, chairman and Chief Executive Officer of China HGS. "The key growth drivers for rapid growth in Hanzhong have remained intact and prices for residential properties have steadily increased since 2009. Most importantly, we have not witnessed significant speculation in the local real estate market. While the Chinese government has recently tightened the monetary policy, we believe it largely targets tier I and tier II cities and will be of minimal impact to our operations. We are confident in our ability to achieve our guidance for fiscal year 2010."
