"We continued our solid sales growth in the fourth quarter of 2010 supported by our acquisitions earlier in the year. Ball valves contributed by our subsidiary Hanwei Valve boosted sales to the petrochemical, oil and gas industry, to which sales increased more than 300% year over year in the quarter. This represents an ongoing shift in our product portfolio and increased diversification of revenue among several significant growth industries in China. During the quarter, we also maintained our strongholds in the thermal power generation and water supply sectors while expanding sales to the nuclear power industry through the contribution of new products, such as large diameter high pressure valves used in power stations, large diameter valves for water-pipe projects and gate valves for nuclear power plants," said Mr. Jianbao Wang, CEO of China Valves. "Despite our strong growth, we incurred a write down in the value of finished goods, an impairment loss of fixed assets for production and accrued inventory allowance in the fourth quarter, leading us to miss our target net income for the quarter. We continue our restructuring efforts to improve production efficiency of our acquired subsidiaries and to reorganize bidding processes for larger projects."

Fourth Quarter 2010 Results

For the quarter ended December 31, 2010, the Company's total revenue was $52.3 million, an increase of 106.3% from $25.4 million in the same quarter last year. The increase was mainly due to approximately $19.0 million in revenue contributed by the subsidiaries Yangzhou Rock Valve Lock Technology Co., Ltd. ("Yangzhou Rock"), China Valves Technology (Changsha) Valve Co., Ltd ("Changsha Valve") and Shanghai Pudong Hanwei Valve Co., Ltd. ("Hanwei Valve") acquired earlier in 2010. While sales from the newly acquired subsidiaries accounted for 36.2% of total sales, organic growth remained strong at approximately 31.6%. The increased demand for the Company's valves was driven by China's rapid industrialization and infrastructure investment by the Chinese government. The Company expanded sales in particular to the petrochemical, oil and gas industry for the period, while simultaneously developing thermal power and water supply markets in China to which it supplies several market leading products. The Company also increased sales to the nuclear power industry.

Gross profit for the quarter was $18.4 million, up 48.8% from $12.4 million for the same period of 2009. Gross margin was 35.3% for the quarter compared to 48.9% for the same period in 2009. The decrease in gross margin was mainly due to the following factors: First, the Company accrued $0.7 million in inventory allowance due to slow moving and obsolete inventory in the fourth quarter of 2010. Second, the Company accrued a price adjustment loss of $1.9 million for finished goods whose carrying value was higher than net realizable value. Third, the Company performed a year-end impairment test for fixed assets for production and booked an impairment loss of $1.3 million in the quarter. Finally, the Company sold a larger percentage of lower priced medium to low pressure valves compared to the corresponding quarter last year.

Selling expenses were $3.8 million, compared to $1.7 million in the same quarter of 2009. This increase was mainly because of higher commission expenses associated with increased sales. Selling expenses as a percentage of sales were 7.2% for the fourth quarter 2010 from 6.6% for the fourth quarter 2009.

General and administrative expenses were $6.5 million, compared to $1.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2009. The increase was primarily attributable to inclusion of expenses from the three newly acquired subsidiaries. Professional fees, travel expense and meal and entertainment expenses also increased due to various business acquisition activities. General and administrative expense as a percentage of sales was 12.4% compared to 7.1% for the same period last year. The increase is due to the Company hiring more top management personnel.

Total other income was $2.3 million for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared with other expenses of $1.5 for the same period in the previous year. The difference was mainly due to the non-cash change in fair value of warrant liabilities of $0.5 million and gain from acquisition of 2.7 million in the three months ended December 31, 2010 compared with a non-cash change in fair value of warrant liabilities of $1.2 million for the same period in 2009.

Provision for income taxes was $4.0 million, compared to $2.2 million for the fourth quarter of 2009. Income tax increased mainly due to increased taxable earnings in the three-month period ended December 31, 2010, compared to 2009.

Net income for the fourth quarter of 2010 was $6.4 million compared with $16.4 million for the corresponding quarter in 2009. Diluted earnings per share were $0.18 for the fourth quarter of 2010, compared to diluted earnings per share of $0.52 for the fourth quarter of 2009. After adjusting for non-cash stock compensation expenses of $32,171, a non-cash change in the fair value of warrant liabilities of $0.5 million, and $2.7 million in gain from acquisition, the Company achieved net income of $4.3 million, or $0.12 per diluted share for the fourth quarter 2010, compared to net income of $6.4 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2009, after adjusting for a reversal of a non-cash stock compensation expense of $11.2 million related to the release of 4.2 million make good shares from escrow after the Company achieved its make good target for fiscal year 2009 and a non-cash change in the fair value of warrant liabilities of $1.2 million. Please see the table below for a reconciliation of adjusted financial information to GAAP financial information. The Company had 34,759,078 weighted average diluted shares outstanding in the fourth quarter 2010 compared with 31,446,247 in the fourth quarter 2009.

Full Year 2010 Results

Revenue for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010 was $183.7 million, up 92.6% from revenue of $95.4 million for 2009. Gross profit was $80.4 million, up 71.7% from gross profit of $46.8 million for 2009. Gross margin was 43.8%, compared to 49.1% for 2009. The decrease in gross margin was mainly because the products sold by the three recently acquired subsidiaries had lower overall gross profit margin than the products sold by Zhengdie Valve and Kaifeng Valve. The Company is currently standardizing production methodology and techniques at the new subsidiaries in order to optimize their production capacity. In addition, the higher labor and management costs of the new subsidiaries resulted in higher fixed costs per unit and lower overall gross profit percentage. The Company also sold more medium to low pressure valves, which generally have lower selling prices, in 2010 compared with 2009.

Net income in 2010 was $43.2 million, or $1.25 per diluted share, an increase of 85.0% from $23.4 million, or $0.75 per diluted share, for the same period a year ago. After adjusting for $56,019 in non-cash stock compensation expenses, a gain of $3.7 million from acquisitions and a loss of $0.8 million in non-cash changes in fair value of warrant liabilities, non-GAAP net income for 2010 was $40.3 million, or $1.16 per diluted share, compared with non-GAAP net income of $24.9 million, or $0.80 per diluted share, in 2009, after adjusting for $47,057 in non-cash stock compensation expenses and $1.5 million in non-cash changes in fair value of warrant liabilities.

Financial Condition

As of December 31, 2010, China Valves had $25.8 million in cash and cash equivalents, $86.2 million in working capital and a current ratio of 2.7:1. Accounts receivable were $84.1 million as of December 31, 2010 compared with $32.3 million as of December 31, 2009 and days sales outstanding were 116 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010 compared with 112 for the corresponding period last year. The increase in accounts receivable was due to the recently acquired subsidiaries. The Company has focused on improving the collection of accounts receivable by implementing various measures, such as compensating sales personnel for collections.  

The Company had no long-term debt on its balance sheet as of December 31, 2010. Shareholders' equity stood at $188.6 million, compared with $113.4 million as of December 31, 2009.

The Company generated $17.2 million in cash from operating activities for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010, compared with $25.1 million for the same period in 2009. The increase in cash flow from operating activities was primarily due to increased net income, partially offset by an increase in accounts receivable.

The Company used $30.6 million in cash for investing activities for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010, mainly for acquisitions. In the same period, the Company had $24.2 million in cash flow from financing activities, mainly due to proceeds from a registered direct offering of securities.

As of December 31, 2010, the Company had no principal outstanding under its credit facilities and lines of credit.

Subsequent Events

In February 2011, the Company's subsidiary Henan Tonghai Fluid Equipment Co., Ltd. obtained a class AAA credit rating by the China Machinery Enterprise Management Association ("CMEMA") on February 12, 2011. CMEMA is the successor of the former Ministry of China Machinery Industry that supervises and provides guidance to the machinery industry in China. The rating evaluates the Company's product quality and payment history to suppliers, among other factors, and provides a comprehensive quality rating for manufacturing enterprises. The rating is valid for three years starting from the date of issuance and re-evaluated annually. In 2011, CMEMA only granted seven companies an AAA rating in China.

In February 2011, the Company announced that together with the Bureau of National Energy of China, Kaifeng Valve has signed a research and development agreement with Nantong Power Plant to supply DN250main stream valves, DN350 hydraulic inlet / outlet three-way valves, DN800 extraction of high discharge check valves, and DN2800 turbine vacuum butterfly valves, all which are newly designed for 1,000 MW ultra-supercritical power plants. The Company plans to sign supply contracts for ultra-supercritical 1,000MW specifications with an additional four power plants in March.

In January 2011, the Company's gate and check valves used in the core island of nuclear power plants successfully passed all tests administered by China Institute of Atomic Energy, the primary nuclear science and technology research institute in China, and Nuclear Power Institute of China, the leading base in China for nuclear reactor engineering research, design, testing and operation.

In January 2011, the Company responded to allegations presented in an online report published on January 13, 2010 and provided clarification to investor questions related to its acquisitions and cash position. In February and March 2011 several plaintiffs filed complaints against the Company, asserting claims for certain violations of the securities laws and seeking unspecified damages. The Company has not yet responded to any complaint, but intends to contest the allegations and to defend itself vigorously.

In January 2011, the Company conducted a registered direct offering of an aggregate of 1,000,000 shares of our common stock at a price of $10.00 per share for gross proceeds of approximately $10 million, to several accredited institutional investors. In addition, the Company issued to the investors warrants to purchase 250,000 shares of common stock, in the aggregate, at a price of $10.00 per share, exercisable for 180 days beginning on the date of the initial issuance of the warrants. The proceeds of the financing have or will be used for working capital.

Business Outlook

In 2011, the Company expects to improve production and sales efficiency through consolidation of manufacturing practices at its subsidiaries, bidding for large-scale projects though its Shanghai-based sales office, and further diversification of end-user industries. The Company expects the petrochemical, oil and gas industry to remain a strong growth driver in 2011, supported by the demand from domestic thermal power and water supply markets. The Company also intends to continue its long-term efforts to become a significant valve supplier to the nuclear power market in China.

"Looking forward, we remain confident in the growth opportunities with our end-user markets and in our position as an industry leader. The localization trend in the thermal power industry is an encouraging sign of a shift towards domestic valves in increasingly demanding applications and one we hope will transfer to other key applications as well. Consequently, we target 25%-28% revenue growth for 2011 excluding any additional acquisitions," said Mr. Wang. "Following higher labor and raw material costs in line with higher inflation in China, we expect gross margin around 41%-42% for the next few quarters. The increased consolidation efforts to improve manufacturing efficiencies may increase the profitability of our new subsidiaries in the future. However, the larger number of subsidiaries and broader product portfolio impacts product mix, which may lead to quarterly fluctuations in our gross margin."

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and nine months ended December 31, 2010 and December 31, 2009 presented on a GAAP basis, the Company provided adjusted financial information in this release that excludes the impact of gains from acquisitions, changes in fair value of derivative instruments and non-cash compensation expenses. The Company's management believes that these adjusted measures, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted earnings per share provide investors with a better understanding of how the results relate to the Company's current and historical performance. The additional adjusted information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financials. The adjusted financial information that the Company provides also may differ from the adjusted information provided by other companies. Management believes that these adjusted financial measures are useful to investors because they exclude non-cash expenses that management excludes when it internally evaluates the performance of the Company's business and makes operating decisions, including internal budgeting, and performance measurement, because these measures provide a consistent method of comparison to historical periods. Moreover, management believes that these adjusted measures reflect the essential operating activities of the Company. In addition, the provision of these adjusted measures allows investors to evaluate the Company's performance using the same methodology and information as that used by the Company's management. Adjusted measures are subject to inherent limitations because they do not include all of the expenses included under GAAP and because they involve the exercise of judgment of which charges are excluded from the adjusted financial measure. However, the Company's management compensates for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of the items excluded. A reconciliation of each adjusted measure to the nearest GAAP measure appears in the table below.
