"Our performance over the second quarter demonstrated our continued strength in the flat-panel display market, as revenue grew 39% year over year and net earnings increased by 176% from last year. These positive signs are indicative of the success we have achieved in implementing our four-prong strategy to position the Company in a promising direction for the future. "Our four-prong strategy enables us to focus on strengthening our brand portfolio, specializing in high-growth industry verticals, diversifying our product lines and expanding distribution channels across China's tier three and four cities. These strategies are being well-implemented and we are pleased with the results of our efforts. We have received positive feedback for our newly developed products, the touch-screen Parts-In-One (PIO) and All-In-One (AIO) PC. We expect these new products to further drive our growth in the second half of the year and to facilitate the expansion of our sales and distribution networks in various areas of China. As a result, we are able to strengthen our solid brand portfolio and expand our market share. "With China's economic focus expected to shift towards tier three and four cities over the next decade, our leading capabilities in product distribution in these cities will come to bear on numerous opportunities and challenges that lie ahead. Over the last three quarters, we have rapidly expanded our coverage of distribution networks in rural areas to most of the provinces, covering a substantial area of China geographically." Mr. Or concluded, "We have also opened our new sales operation in Shenzhen, one of the most active and demanding cities for innovative electronic devices to accommodate the expansion of sales and services in China, and it will become SGOCO's key sales and operational base going forward. Our focus on geographic and product expansion guarantees SGOCO's success in increasing profitability through the development of new products and opportunistic acquisitions, priming the Company to capitalize on the enormous business opportunities afforded by China's shifting landscape." SECOND QUARTER 2013 FINANCIAL RESULTS Revenue Total revenue for the second quarter 2013 increased 38.7% to $59.2 million from $42.7 million in the second quarter of 2012. The year-over-year revenue increase was mainly due to the addition of a few local distributor clients and increased sales of flat panel monitors in the second quarter. Of the total revenues in the quarter, $41.3 million or 69.8% of total revenues were from SGOCO Brand and its Licensed Brands; $17.1 million or 28.9% of total revenues were from Key Accounts sales; and $0.8 million or 1.3% of total revenues were from sales of Other Application Products. Cost of Goods Sold Cost of goods sold increased 39.5% to $54.0 million from $38.7 million in the second quarter of 2012. The increase was in line with the revenue growth. Gross Profit and Gross Margin Gross profit increased 31.5% to $5.2 million from $4.0 million for the second quarter of 2012. The overall gross margin for the second quarter of 2013 was 8.8%, as compared with 9.3% for the second quarter of 2012. The decrease in gross margin was mainly due to withholding tax paid to Chinese authorities, starting in the second half of 2012, for recycling imported monitors. This decrease was alleviated by the exchange gain we recognized due to the appreciation of the Renminbi, as most of our purchases were settled in USD. During the second quarter of 2013, SGOCO Brand and its Licensed Brands' sales had a gross margin of 9.6%, which decreased from 9.9% in the second quarter of 2012. During the second quarter of 2013 and 2012, Key Accounts sales had a gross margin of 8.2% and 5.9%, respectively. Sales of other application products in the second quarter of 2013 recorded a gross margin of 10.4%, as compared to nil sales in the second quarter of 2012. Operating Expenses Selling, General and Administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2013 decreased to $1.2 million from $1.9 million for the second quarter of 2012. Selling expenses for the second quarter of 2013 increased 140.0% year-over-year to $0.3 million, representing 0.5% of total revenues, compared with $0.1 million or 0.3% of total revenues in the second quarter of 2012. The increase was mainly attributable to an increase in transportation costs from increased product sales during the second quarter and increased staff costs due to additional employees hired in Shenzhen and Beijing offices to strengthen the sales team. General and Administrative ("G&A") expenses decreased 52.7% year-over-year to $0.8 million from $1.8 million for the second quarter of 2012.The decrease of G&A expenses was due to tightened controls over expenses and a decrease in the professional fees due to the completion of investigation in relation to the Company's trading halt and change of auditors in 2012. Operating Income and Operating Margin Operating income for the second quarter of 2013 was $4.1 million, up 97.3% from $2.1 million in the second quarter of 2012. Operating margin was 6.8%, and improved from 4.8% in the second quarter of 2012 due to the increase of revenue and reduction of G&A expenses. Net Income, Net Margin and EPS Net income for the second quarter of 2013 was $3.4 million, an increase of 175.7% from $1.2 million in the second quarter of 2012. Net margin was 5.7% for the second quarter of 2013, which increased from 2.9% in the second quarter of 2012. Basic and diluted EPS were $0.20 for the second quarter of 2013, compared to $0.07 in the second quarter of 2012. Basic and diluted EPS for the second quarter of 2013 was calculated based on 17,173,981 weighted average number of common shares as compared to 17,059,860 weighted average number of common shares in the second quarter of 2012. Balance Sheet Cash and cash equivalents As of June 30, 2013, cash and cash equivalents were $14.2 million, an increase of $ 2.7 million from $11.5 million as of December 31, 2012. The increase in the cash position was primarily attributable to an increase in operating cash flow from increased sales during the second quarter. Accounts receivable Accounts receivable as of June 30, 2013 increased 28.7% to $76.4 million from $59.4 million as of December 31, 2012. The increase was primarily attributable to increased sales during the second quarter. As of June 30, 2013, Accounts Receivable Turnover Days was 108 days compared to 68 days as of June 30, 2012. The increase in Accounts Receivable Turnover Days was mainly because most of our customers made use of the credit period we granted them. Inventories Inventories as of June 30, 2013 increased 186.6% to $16.4 million from $5.7 million as of December 31, 2012. The increase was primarily to fulfill the upcoming sales orders and expected market demand. As of June 30, 2013, Inventory Turnover Days was 19 days compared to 4.5 days as of June 30, 2012. The increase in Inventory Turnover Days was mainly because we made significant purchases close to June 30, 2013 for next quarter orders. Working capital Working capital increased to $83.6 million from $78.1 million at the end of 2012. The current ratio was 2.56 on June 30, 2013, compared to 3.86 on December 31, 2012.
