Sooner Holdings Inc. Reports Results for the Second Quarter of 2011

Aug 16, 2011, 08:00 ET from Sooner Holdings Inc.

NEW YORK and SHISHI, China, Aug. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Sooner Holdings Inc. (OTCBB: SOON), a Fujian-based manufacturer and distributor of synthetic polyurethane synthetic leather (PU leather) for the shoe industry in China, today announced financial results and provided a business update for the second quarter of 2011.

Ang Kang Han, Chairman and President, commented, "We continue to generate strong cash flow to fund our growth.  In the second quarter of 2010 we entered a major cooperation agreement with one of our distributors who placed significant orders in anticipation of a major expansion initiative. This distributor accounted for approximately $0.26 million and $2.52 million of sales in the second quarter of 2011 and 2010, respectively.  Excluding sales to this distributor, our revenue increased 13.9% over the same period last year.  

"Overall, we believe we are extremely well positioned to capture market share due to insufficient local supply of PU leather and the high grade characteristics of our synthetic leather. We have built a very efficient and scalable operation with capacity to produce over 12 million meters of PU leather per year.  We have a new facility in San Ming that we expected to commence operation by the second half of 2011, which will increase our capacity by more than 80%, and allow us to capitalize on the growing demand and new opportunities from our customers."

"We are in a strong competitive position due to the fact we are one of only a few fully integrated companies in Fujian. Operating our own resin plant, base cloth production line and PU leather plant has assisted us in mitigating increases in our raw material costs and enables us to customize products to meet the needs of our customers.  Looking ahead, we expect to benefit from our new capacity coming online, while increasing higher margin direct-to-customer sales, entering new regional markets in China, such as Hunan and Jiangxi Provinces, and increasing our presence in high-end overseas markets."
