Sancon Announces 2011 Second Quarter Results

SHANGHAI, CHINA--(Marketwire - Aug 22, 2011) - Sancon Resources Recovery, Inc. (OTCBB: SRRY) (or "Sancon"), a growing environmental services and waste recycling company with operations in both China and Australia, announced today results for its 2011 second quarter ended June 30, 2011.

On April 1, 2011, Sancon approved an infusion of equity in to Sancon Resources Recovery (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. ("Sancon SH") for a total of USD 2,000,000, of which Sancon invested USD1,400,000 to Sancon SH and the minority shareholder invested USD 600,000.

  • Net Income of $0.69 million, a net margin of 10%
  • EBITDA of $0.7 million, or $0.02 per share.

Results of Operations - Comparison between the six months ended June 30, 2011 and the same periods in 2010

The Company generated revenue of $6.97 million in the 2011 second quarter, representing $836,962 or 14% increase compared to $6.14 million in the 2010 second quarter. Revenue from China operation increased $892,500 or 19% from $4.8 million in 2010 second quarter to $5.7 million in 2011 second quarter. Revenue from Australia operation has decreased $55,538 or 4% from $1,346,260 in 2010 second quarter to $1,290,722 in 2011 second quarter. The increase in revenue in China operation is partially because of the acquisition of the newly started waste paper and cardboards collection business from June 2010.

Gross profit decreased $296,347 or 10% to $2.73 million in the second quarter 2011 from $3.02 million in the second quarter 2010. Gross profit of China operation decreased $359,448 or 16% from $2.28 million in 2010 second quarter to $1.92 million in 2011 second quarter. The increase of raw material in our waste paper collection business is the main reason for the decrease of gross profit. However, our management believes the gross margin will be increased along with the expansion of the market in waste paper collection. In Australia, gross profit increased $63,101 or 8% from $743,604 in 2010 second quarter to $806,705 in 2011 second quarter. Gross margin decreased from 50% in the 2010 second quarter to 39% in the 2011 second quarter.

Net income for 2011 second quarter was $0.69 million, or $0.03 basic and diluted earnings per share, compared to $1.10 million or $0.05 basic and diluted earnings per share one year ago. Net income of our China operation decreased $0.34M or 29% from $1.15M in 2010 first quarter to $0.81M in 2011 first quarter. Net income of our Australia operation decreased $63,800 or 124% from $51,088 in 2010 second quarter to $114,888 for the same period in 2011. The high wage expenses and consulting fee result in the decrease of net income in Australia.

Financial Position as of June 30, 2011

At June 30, 2011, the Company had cash and cash equivalents totaling $6.98 million, total assets of $11 million, working capital of $6 million and stockholders' equity of $8.13 million. The Company generated $1.31 million in net cash from operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

"We are pleased with our continued increase in revenue in 2011 second quarter. However, our gross profit and net income has dropped. That is mainly due to the poor performance in our Australia operation and small scale of waste paper business in China," said Jack Chen, Sancon's Chief Executive Officer. "We have recently changed the management in our Australia operation and we are working hard to turn it around in the next quarter. In China, we've installed additional equipments which will triple our daily waste paper processing capacity. By expanding the waste paper business rapidly within a short period, we can negotiate a better pricing and increase our margin."
