  • Operating income and operating margin for the third quarter were $1.6 million and 10.5%, respectively, compared to $0.27 million and 3.1%, respectively, in the third quarter of 2009.
  • Earnings per diluted share were $0.05 for the quarter, compared to earnings per diluted share of $0.01 in the same period a year ago.

Revenue and Earnings

Shiner’s revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2010 increased 79.2% when compared to the same period in 2009. The year-over-year increase in revenue was attributable to changes in the product mix, which includes an increase in sales of higher margin products and stronger domestic product sales across all of the Company’s product lines. Coated film sales increased 154.6%, or $3.7 million, from $2.4 million in the third quarter of 2009 to $6.1 million in the third quarter of 2010. Revenue from BOPP tobacco film sales was $3.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2010, an increase of 19.3%, from $3.1 million for the same period in 2009. Anti-counterfeit film sales increased 103.9%, or $2.3 million, to $4.5 million from $2.2 million for the comparable period in 2009. Offsetting these increases was a slight decrease in sales of the Company’s color printing products, from $1.0 million in the third quarter of 2009 to $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2010.

International sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 accounted for 19% of Shiner’s total revenues and totaled $2.9 million, down from $3.1 million in the same period in 2009. ¬†International sales were marked by an increase in coated film sales of 32% year-over-year, to $1.7 million from approximately $1.3 million, which was offset by a 37% decrease in anti-counterfeiting film sales from $1.75 million in the 2009 third quarter to $1.1 million for the corresponding 2010 period.

Shiner’s gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2010 was $3.4 million, which represented a gross margin of 22.1% and an increase of 4.8 percentage points from a gross margin of 17.3% for the three months ended September 30, 2009. The increase in gross margin was a direct consequence of an increase in the selling prices of the Company’s products, a decrease in overhead unit rates as a result of increased production volume, and lower raw material prices.

Income from operations was $1.6 million for the third quarter, compared to $0.27 million in the same period of 2009. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by about 46.2%, or $0.6 million, to $1.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010, up from $1.2 million for the comparable period in 2009.

For the third quarter of fiscal 2010, Shiner reported net income of $1.3 million compared to net income of $0.30 million in the same period last year. Earnings per share for the quarter were $0.05, compared to earnings of $0.01 per share for the third quarter of 2009. The improvement was largely attributable to higher sales volume and selling prices, lower raw material costs, and lower overhead rates from higher capacity utilization.

As of September 30, 2010, Shiner had $3.0 million in cash and cash equivalents on hand. On September 30, 2010, the Company had five short-term loans outstanding, totaling $4.8 million, and working capital of $11.9 million, an increase of $0.5 million from December 31, 2009.

First Nine Months 2010 Financial Highlights

  • Revenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 increased 69.9% year-over-year to $40.3 million, up from $23.7 million in same period of 2009.
  • Net income for the nine-month period was $3.2 million, compared with a net loss of $0.25 million for the same period of 2009.
  • Gross margin for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 was 18.7% based on gross profit of $7.6 million, compared with a 13.0% margin in the same period last year.
  • Operating income and operating margin for the first nine months of fiscal 2010 were $3.7 million and 9.1%, respectively, compared to an operating loss of $0.27 million in the first nine months of 2009.
  • Earnings per diluted share were $0.13 for the nine-month period, compared with a loss per diluted share of $0.01 in the same period a year ago.

Operations Outlook

Mr. Qingtao Xing, Shiner’s President and CEO, stated: “We are excited to announce such strong results for the third quarter as we build on our success in the first half of the year. Our top and bottom lines have continued to improve, including nearly 340% net income growth since the third quarter of last year. Sales of our three main product lines all showed significant improvement over the same period last year, with particularly robust growth in our coated film and anti-counterfeit film segments, which grew 155% and 104%, respectively, from the third quarter of 2009.

“As we look forward to the end of the year,” Mr. Xing said, “We expect earnings to be in line with our previous forecasts and currently estimate fiscal 2010 revenue of $53 million and net income of $4 million. A key driver of our overall growth continues to be stronger demand for advanced packaging under new food safety regulation in China and also constant demand for cost efficient packaging solution internationally. We anticipate opening six sales offices in China and eight more overseas in 2011 to take advantage of emerging opportunities both in China and internationally. Overall, we are encouraged by our strong performance in a difficult macroeconomic environment. Longer-term, we will continue to drive aggressive, international expansion.”

Business Highlights

Mr. Xing stated: “I recently returned from PackExpo in Chicago, which is the largest industry tradeshow in the world, and I am very encouraged about Shiner’s long-term growth and opportunities based on the feedback that we received from existing customers and potential new customers at the show. We introduced two new products at the show, which were very well received; these products are especially useful in food packaging applications with products such as cheese, nuts or cookies.

“A number of converters and sales agents from the U.S. and Europe expressed strong initial interest in the new products and have approached us to discuss the possibility of becoming a potential reseller in their respective regions. Shiner’s ability to produce world-class products at very competitive costs further strengthens my confidence that Shiner has the opportunity to become a significant player in the global supply chain for advanced packaging products.”

The emerging Chinese market for better-quality food packaging continues to present a growth opportunity for Shiner. With the ongoing enforcement of the food safety law and leading food companies focusing on protecting their brand image, the Company expects that demand for packaging based on its coated film technology will grow significantly in China. Shiner remains an industry leader in China both in terms of technology and market share.
