Review of Income Statement of the Group

Second Quarter FY2019 ("Q2 FY2019") vs Second Quarter FY2018 ("Q2 FY2018")

Revenue

Group revenue increased by 13.8% to RMB207.5 million in Q2 FY2019 as compared to RMB182.4 million in Q2 FY2018. The increase in revenue was mainly from higher sales of towercranes by RM33.4 million from RMB125.3 million in Q2 FY2018 to RMB158.7 million in Q2 FY2019. It was mainly driven by the demand for large and mega size towercranes in Singapore and the demand for medium size towercranes in the PRC amidst adoption of the Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction "PPVC" method and the prefabricated construction method respectively.

The increase in revenue from sales of towercranes was partially offset by lower rental & service income and sales of components of RMB7.7 million and RMB0.6 million respectively in Q2 FY2019 as compared to Q2 FY2018. Decrease in rental & service income was mainly due to decrease in Hong Kong and Macau operations as a result of weaker demand.

Revenue in Asia (outside the PRC) rose by 37.1% to RMB88.0 million in Q2 FY2019 as compared to RMB64.1 million in Q2 FY2018. Sales in PRC and the Middle East reported higher by RMB3.1 million and RMB4.3 million respectively in Q2 FY2019 as compared to Q2 FY2018. The increase was offset by the decrease in the USA & Europe which was down by RMB6.1 million.

Overall, the PRC and Asia (outside the PRC) sales contributed to 46.2% and 42.4% respectively of the Group revenue.

Gross profit and gross profit margin

Despite the increase in revenue, gross profit decreased by 9.8% to RMB55.8 million in Q2 FY2019 from RMB61.8 million in Q2 FY2018 amidst keen price competition resulting in lower margins from sales of towercranes, coupled with higher steel material cost. A provision for inventory obsolescence on certain components and accessories of RMB4.5 million was made in Q2 FY2019 as part of the Group's products rationalization exercise to discontinue certain towercranes model with low market demand.

Accordingly, average gross profit margin decreased to 26.9% in Q2 FY2019 from 33.9% in Q2 FY2018.

Other income

Other income increased slightly by RMB0.2 million to RMB1.4 million in Q2 FY2019 as compared to RMB1.2 million in Q2 FY2018 was mainly due to sub-rental of premises income from Hong Kong of RMB0.8 million. The increase was partly offset by lower interest income of RMB0.4 million.

Operating expenses

Total operating expenses increased by 1.2% to RMB41.4 million in Q2 FY2019 as compared to RMB40.9 million in Q2 FY2018.

Distribution costs increased significantly by 45.1% to RMB19.4 million in Q2 FY2019 as compared to RMB13.3 million in Q2 FY2018 mainly due to higher freight and transportation and higher premises rental in Hong Kong. Transportation and freight cost increased is in line with higher sales. Apart from this, the increase was also due to higher sales to Southern China which incurred higher freight and transportation expenses.

Administrative expenses increased 8.2% to RMB21.0 million in Q2 FY2019 as compared to RMB19.4 million in Q2 FY2018 mainly due to higher staff cost and higher product certification fee.

Other operating expenses reported a credit balance of RMB3.2 million in Q2 FY2019 from a debit balance of RMB3.7 million in Q2 FY2018. The credit balance in Q2 FY2019 was mainly from exchange gain of RMB3.3 million whilst it reported an exchange loss of RMB1.1 million in Q2 FY2018. Provision for doubtful debts of RMB2.2 million was made in Q2 FY2018 for a Beijing construction company which was long outstanding for more than three years. There was no provision for doubtful debts made for Q2 FY2019.

The exchange gain arose mainly from:

  1. the strengthening of Singapore Dollars ("SGD") and Hong Kong Dollars ("HKD") against Chinese Yuan ("RMB") due to net RMB liabilities in the Singapore subsidiary's book and Hong Kong subsidiary's book; and
     
  2. the strengthening of HKD against RMB and SGD due to net HKD assets in the Company's book and the Singapore subsidiary's book; and
     
  3. the strengthening of USD against SGD due to net USD assets in the Singapore subsidiary's book.

In line with the lower average borrowing, finance costs decreased 6.0% to RMB4.2 million in Q2 FY2019 as compared to RMB4.5 million in Q2 FY2018.

Taxation

Income tax expense decreased to RMB3.8 million in Q2 FY2019 as compared to RMB5.1 million in Q2 FY2018 in line with lower profit for the financial period.

Profit before taxation and Net profit attributable to equity holders of the Company

The Group recorded a profit before taxation of RMB15.8 million in Q2 FY2019 as compared to RMB22.1 million in Q2 FY2018 was mainly due to lower gross profit and higher operating expenses.

Net profit attributable to equity holders of the Company decreased 25.2% to RMB13.6 million in Q2 FY2019 from RMB18.2 million in Q2 FY2018. This was mainly due to lower net profit for the period.

Distribution costs increased 35.1% to RMB34.7 million in 1H FY2019 as compared to RMB25.6 million in 1H FY2018 mainly due to higher freight and transportation and higher premises rental in Hong Kong.

Commentary

China's economy slowed to 6.5 percent year-on-year in the third quarter of 2018 marking the weakest growth since the global financial crisis, amidst the country's trade war with the U.S. which puts pressure on growth. Recent economic data have also pointed to weakening domestic demand with softness across factory activity to infrastructure investment and consumer spending, as a years-long crackdown on riskier lending and debt has pushed up companies' borrowing cost.

The construction sector in China is seeing an increase in the adoption of prefabricated construction method that will likely drive the demand of bigger size towercranes. Demand for towercranes in other overseas markets is mixed with markets such as Singapore, Taiwan and Middle East likely to see a better demand in the replacement market whereas market like Hong Kong remains challenging. However, the Group remains cautious in view of the keen price competition as well as the rising material and business cost.

The Group is currently looking into consolidating its Beijing's manufacturing plant to Fushun as part of the Group's effort to streamline its operations and to improve overall management and cost efficiency.
