HUIZHOU, China, Aug. 13 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Intelligent Lighting and Electronics, Inc. ("China Intelligent" or "the Company") (NYSE Amex: CIL; CUSIP No: 16890G202), a leading provider of lighting solutions that engages in the design, manufacture, sales and marketing of high-quality LED and other lighting products, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010.
Second Quarter 2010 Financial Highlights -- Total revenue increased by 34.1% year-over-year to $18.5 million from $13.8 million in the second quarter of 2009. -- Gross profit increased by 34.3% year-over-year to $4.3 million from $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2009. -- Operating income was $2.3 million, as compared to an operating income of $1.8 million in the second quarter of 2009. -- Net income attributable to the equity shareholders of China Intelligent was $1.9 million, compared to a net income attributable to the equity shareholders of China Intelligent of $1.5 million in the second quarter of 2009. -- Diluted net earnings per share were $0.18, based on 10,602,684 weighted-average shares outstanding, compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.22, based on 7,097,748 weighted-average shares outstanding, in the second quarter of 2009.
Ms. Li Xuemei, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of China Intelligent, said, "Our second quarter results reflect successful execution of our initiatives to expand our domestic sales distribution and build market appreciation for our product offering. Following our exhibition at the Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition, we signed agreements with 10 additional distributors. We are also benefiting from trends in the domestic manufacturing industry. New construction projects are arising as manufacturers in China shift production to inner regions of the country to lower their labor costs, driving demand for our lighting products.
"We are proud to have successfully completed our IPO in June 2010, and we plan to use the proceeds from the offering to invest in research and development for new LED technologies as we expand our product offering, and to build our manufacturing and production capabilities so that we can leverage the opportunities provided by the rapidly-growing LED lighting market."
Second Quarter Unaudited Financial Results
Total revenue for the second quarter 2010 increased year-over-year by $4.7 million, or 34.1%, to $18.5 million. The increase in revenue is mainly attributable to the increase in household lighting product sales, which was a result of the Company's market expansion and sales volume growth. Further contributing factors are the growth of the lighting industry, increased brand and product recognition following the recently completed IPO and participation in the lighting tradeshow in GuangZhou, and the expansion of the Company's manufacturing capacity and sales channels.
Cost of Goods Sold and Gross Margin
Cost of goods sold in the second quarter of 2010 increased year-over-year by $3.7 million, or 34.9%, to $14.3 million, primarily due to overall sales growth. Gross profit for the three months ended June 30, 2010 was $4.3 million, compared to $3.2 million for the comparable period in 2009. Gross margin for the second quarter of 2010 was 23.0%, roughly in line with a gross margin of 23.1% in the second quarter of 2009.
Research and development ("R&D") expenses for the second quarter 2010 increased year-over-year by $0.2 million, or 81.5%, to $0.5 million, primarily due to an increased investment in LED technology research. As a percentage of total revenues, second quarter of 2010 R&D expenses increased to 2.5% from 1.9% in the second quarter 2009 for the aforementioned reason.
Selling expenses for the second quarter 2010 increased year-over-year by $0.1 million, or 11.4%, to $0.7 million, primarily as a result of overall sales increase. As a percentage of revenues, second quarter of 2010 selling expenses decreased to 4.0% from 4.9% in the second quarter 2009.
General and administrative ("G&A") expenses for the second quarter 2010 increased year-over-year by $0.3 million, or 72.8%, to $0.8 million. The increase was primarily driven by the professional fees and expenses related to the IPO closed in June 2010, which amounted to roughly $0.4 million in the second quarter. As a result, as a percentage of revenues, second quarter of 2010 G&A expenses increased to 4.1% from 3.2% in the second quarter of 2009.
Accordingly, overall operating expenses for the second quarter 2010 increased year-over-year by $0.6 million, or 44.5%, to $2.0 million.
Income tax expense for the second quarter 2010 was $0.3 million, compared to $0.3 million in the second quarter 2009.
Operating Income and Net Income
Operating income for the second quarter 2010 was $2.3 million, as compared to a second quarter 2009 operating income of $1.8 million.
Net income attributable to the equity shareholders of China Intelligent was $1.9 million in the second quarter 2010, compared to a net income attributable to the equity shareholders of China Intelligent of $1.5 million for the second quarter of 2009. The net income margin was 10.4% for the second quarter 2010 compared to 11.2% for the same period in 2009.
Diluted earnings per share for the second quarter 2010 were $0.18, based on 10,602,684 weighted-average shares outstanding, compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.22, based on 7,097,748 weighted-average shares outstanding, in the second quarter of 2009.
Cash and cash equivalents were $11.0 million as of June 30, 2010, compared to $0.5 million as of December 31, 2009, primarily due to the net proceeds of approximately $2.5 million and $7.6 million that the Company raised from the private placements closed in January 2010 and an IPO closed in June 2010, respectively.
Total accounts receivable as of June 30, 2010 was $15.5 million, compared to $13.4 million as of December 31, 2009; the increase is primarily due to the rapid growth of sales and an increased portion of credit sales.
Inventories as of June 30, 2010 were $4.8 million, compared to $3.9 million as of December 31, 2009; the increase is primarily due to increased sales volume.
Guidance for Third Quarter 2010
Management estimates that revenue for the third quarter of 2010 will be in the range of $19.1 million and $20.1 million and that net income for the third quarter will be in the range of $2.1 million and $2.4 million.
