HOHHOT, China, Oct. 18, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Gold Horse International, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: GHII) ("Gold Horse" or the "Company"), a multifaceted business group that controls and through the Jin Ma Companies operates a construction company, real estate development business and a hotel/banquet facility in Inner Mongolia, China, today announced its financial results for the twelve months ended June 30, 2011.

Fiscal Year 2011 Highlights

  • Net revenue increased 50.3% year-over-year to $76.5 million
  • Gross margin was 17.9% compared to 20.0% in the prior year
  • Gross profit increased 34.9% year-over-year to $13.7 million

  • Net income increased 17.6% year-over-year to $9.7 million from $8.3 million
  • Adjusted net income excluding non-cash gains and expenses was $9.2 million, or $4.62 per fully diluted common share as compared to adjusted net income of $6.6 million, or $3.99 per fully diluted common share, a year ago

"We are quite pleased with Jin Ma Real Estate's new real estate development projects, and we are confident that the Jin Ma Companies remain on track to become one of the most prominent construction and real estate development companies in Inner Mongolia, China. We are confident that real estate development in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia and its surrounding areas, a third- tier city, will remain strong and will not feel the effects of the slower real estate markets occurring in tier-one cities such as Beijing and Shanghai," said Mr. Liankuan Yang, chairman and CEO of Gold Horse.

Fiscal Year 2011 Results

For the fiscal year 2011, total net revenue was $76.5 million, up 50.3% from $50.9 million in the fiscal year 2010.

  • Construction revenue was $41 million or 53.6% of total net revenue, up from $37 million, or 73.6% of total net revenue for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010. The fluctuation in Jan Ma Construction's revenue for the fiscal year 2011 as compared to the fiscal year 2010 was attributable to the timing of construction work performed.
  • Revenue from the hotel segment was $3.0 million, down 1.3% from $3.1 million in last year.
  • Revenue from the real estate segment was $32.5 million, up 214.2% from $10.3 million. The increase was attributable to an increase in revenues recognized from the collections of funds from the Vocational School on the installment method of approximately $15,000, an increase in revenues recognized from the collections of funds from the Chemistry School on the installment method of approximately $1,646,000 due to timing of collections  and an increase in revenues from the sale of units at Shuian Renjia Project of approximately $29,687,000, offset by a decrease of revenues from the sale of units at Building 1 to 4 of Procuratorate Housing Estates of approximately $7,012,000 and a decrease of revenues from the sale of units at Building 5 of the Procuratorate Housing Estates (Jian Guan) of approximately $2,203,000.

Gross profit for the year was $13.7 million, up 34.9% from $10.2 million last fiscal year. Gross margin was 17.9%, down from 20.0% in the prior year.

Operating expenses for the fiscal year 2011 were $2.4 million, or 3.1% of net revenue. While the Company incurred lower salaries and employment benefits, operating expenses increased mainly due to the increases in hotel operating expenses and selling, general and administrative expenses, offset by the increase in bad debt recovery.

Operating income for fiscal 2011 was $11.36 million, up from $7.98 million in fiscal 2010. Operating margin for the fiscal year of 2011 was 14.8% as compared to 15.7% in fiscal 2010.

The Company recorded net income of $9.7 million in fiscal 2011 as compared to net income of $8.3 million in fiscal 2010. Adjusted net income excluding non-cash gains and expenses was $9.2 million or $4.62 per fully diluted common share as compared to adjusted net income of $6.6 million or $3.99 per fully diluted common share in fiscal 2010.

Financial Condition

As of June 30, 2011, Gold Horse had $0.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, short-term debt of $0.5 million and long-term debt of $4.6 million. Shareholders' equity was $50.4 million, up from $36.6 million as of June 30, 2010. Cash provided by financing activities for fiscal 2011 was $2.8 million.

Business Outlook

The Jin Ma Companies are in various stages of development of three new real estate development projects totaling approximately $96 million in estimated revenues over fiscal years 2014 to 2016. These projects are a joint effort between the Jin Ma Construction and Jin Ma Real Estate with the construction business serving as the general contractor for the construction of these projects.

Mr. Liankuan Yang, Chairman and CEO of Gold Horse, offered a brief description on each project:

  • In July 2010, construction of buildings No. 6 of the Procuratorate Housing Estates (Jiari Residential Building) began which consists of a construction area of 38,000 square meters and is expected to be completed in August 2013, with estimated revenues of $22 million. Jin Ma Real Estate will sell units to individual homebuyers.
  • In May 2012, Jin Ma Construction is expected to begin the construction of the Beiyuan Residential Building Project, which is in proximity to Xinchen District Government Building and consists of a construction area of 70,000 square meters with an expected completion date of August 2014, and estimated revenues of $37 million. Jin Ma Real Estate will sell units to individual homebuyers.
  • In July 2013, Jin Ma Construction expects to begin the construction of the Jinwu Residential Building Project, which consists of a construction are of 100,000 square meters with an expected completion date of August 2015, and estimated revenues of $37 million. Jin Ma Real Estate will sell units to individual homebuyers.

Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income

In addition to disclosing financial results in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and to supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis in Table 1, the Company's earnings release contains the non-GAAP financial measures "adjusted net income."

Adjusted net income is not a measure of performance defined in accordance with GAAP. However, management believes that adjusted net income is useful to investors in evaluating the Company's performance because adjusted net income reflects the elimination of gains from the change in fair value of derivative liabilities and extinguishment of debt.

Management believes that the disclosure of adjusted net income offers an additional view of the Company's operations that, when coupled with the GAAP results and the reconciliation to GAAP net income, provides a more complete understanding of the Company's results of operations and the factors and trends affecting the Company.

Adjusted net income should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of the Company's performance or as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity. The primary material limitations associated with the use of adjusted net income as compared to GAAP net income is:

  • it may not be compared to similarly titled measures used by other companies in the Company's industry; and
  • it excludes financial information that some may consider important in evaluating the Company's performance.

The Company compensates for these limitations by providing a reconciliation of adjusted net income to GAAP net income to enable investors to perform their own analysis of the Company's operating results.
