ZHUCHENG, CHINA--(Marketwire - Aug 16, 2011) - China America Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: CAAH), a holding company operating in China through its wholly owned subsidiary, Ziyang Ceramic Co., Ltd., announced today its financial results for the second quarter and first six months of its fiscal year which ends on December 31, 2011.

- Revenue Reaches $9.9 million in 2nd Quarter of 2011, Up 16.6% from the $8.5 Million Recorded in the Three Month Period Ended June 30, 2010

- Operating Income Climbs to $2.9 Million, Up 7.0% from the $2.7 Million Recorded in the Three Month Period Ended June 30, 2010

Financial Highlights

For the second quarter of 2011 total revenues reached $9.9 million, up 16.6% from the $8.5 million recorded in the second quarter of 2010. For the first six months of 2011, we recorded revenues of $17.3 million, up 22.0% from the $14.2 million recorded for the first six months of 2010. Sequentially, our revenue increased by 31.8% compared to our first quarter ended March 31, 2011 where revenue was $7.5 million. Gross profit reached $3.5 million in the second quarter of 2011 with operating income of $2.9 million compared to gross profit of $3.1 million with operating income of $2.7 million recorded in the same period in 2010. We recorded net income of $2.3 million for the second quarter of 2011 compared to net income of $2.1 million for the same period in 2010. This resulted in EPS of $0.01 per diluted and basic share for both periods. Net income for the first nine months of 2011 was $4.0 million compared to net income of $3.5 million for the same period in 2010.

The improvement in overall financial results in the second quarter of 2011 was largely driven by increased sales of higher priced polycrystalline porcelain tile product series that was recently launched in the fourth quarter of 2010, partially offset by decreased sales of older and less expensive tile products. Sales from the new polycrystalline product series continued to experience increased sales volume and now represent approximately 46.2% of total revenue recorded in the second quarter of 2011, up sequentially from 25.4% of total revenue represented in the first quarter of 2011. On average, the polycrystalline porcelain tiles are sold at a premium of approximately 48% compared to our patterned polished porcelain tiles. Our gross profit margin was 35.3% in the second quarter of 2011 versus 36.7% in the comparable quarter in 2010. The 1.4% decline in gross profit margin is mainly attributable to increases in wages and higher fuel costs.

Balance Sheet

At June 30, 2011, cash was $6.4 million, up 31.0% from the $4.9 million in cash at December 31, 2010. At June 30, 2011 total shareholder equity increased to $14.6 million, up 9.6% compared to shareholder equity of $13.3 million at December 31, 2010.

Commenting on the second quarter, Mr. Lingbo Chi, CEO of China America Holdings, stated, "We are pleased with our results for the second quarter. We are also pleased to see strong demand for our higher-end polycrystalline product line. We are currently in the testing phase for a new product launch of an interior wall product line. We anticipate sales of this new product line to commence late in the third quarter of 2011 which will enable us to expand sales to a completely new product category. We believe our new products and extensive distribution network have us positioned on a strong growth track for the second half of this year and beyond and look forward to improved performance in our top and bottom line for the foreseeable future."
