SinoCoking Coal and Coke Chemical Industries Announces Fiscal 2013 Year-End Financial Results PR Newswire PINGDINGSHAN, China, Sept. 30, 2013 PINGDINGSHAN, China, Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SinoCoking Coal and Coke Chemical Industries, Inc. (Nasdaq: SCOK) (the "Company" or "SinoCoking"), a vertically-integrated coal and coke processor, today announced its financial results for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2013. Fiscal Year 2013 vs. 2012 oTotal revenue decreased to $66.7 million, as compared to $78.9 million. oGross margin decreased to 12.3%, as compared to 19.2%. oIncome from operations decreased to $5.1 million, as compared to $12.0 million. oNet income was $1.1 million or $0.05 per diluted share, as compared to $12.5 million or $0.59 per diluted share. Discussing fiscal 2013 financial results, SinoCoking's Chairman and CEO, Mr. Jianhua Lv, noted, "The decrease in fiscal 2013 revenue was mainly due to decreased sales of coke, coal tar, raw coal, mid-coal, and washed coal, offset by increased sales of coal slurries as well as sales of coke powder and crude benzol, two new products that we introduced in fiscal 2013. Coke powder and crude benzol are byproducts of the coking process and have various industrial applications. Of note, we have been producing crude benzol at our leased Hongfeng plant since last April." Mr. Lv continued, "In fiscal 2013, our revenue continued to suffer because of a very limited raw coal supply due to the ongoing mining moratorium, and we met our coal requirements largely by purchasing raw coal, including from other provinces, at a higher cost driven by the supply shortage. As a result, our overall production cost increased and gross margin decreased. We expect gross margin to remain depressed until the mining moratorium is lifted and we are able to resume operations at our coal mines. We currently anticipate the moratorium to end sometime in the first half of calendar 2014, although there cannot be any assurance as to the exact timing." Recent business highlights: Mr. Lv added, "In fiscal 2013 we took several steps to expand our current production capacity and product mix. Specifically: oWe upgraded technical capabilities at our Baofeng plant to reduce dependency on high-cost raw materials such as coking coal. The plant can now produce high quality coke and by-products using low cost raw coal, such as long flame coal. We also upgraded oven capabilities to improve their energy efficiency, capture additional by-products for refinement into high value-added chemical products, and conform to environmental requirements. oWe signed a leasing agreement to operate the Hongfeng plant for a period of one year. We are currently producing coke and coke byproducts such as crude benzol (since April) and purified coal gas (trial stage with commercial production to commence shortly), while additional byproducts such as sulfur and sulfur ammonia will be produced as we gradually increase production to full capacity. In April 2013, we resumed construction of our new coking plant. Due to ongoing market conditions, however, we have once again slowed down construction, but plan to resume at full pace if and when the market improves." Mr. Lv noted, "Additionally, to offset the weak demand for conventional coke, we plan to increase production of our clean coke product produced at the Baofeng plant and further expand our product offerings by recapturing additional coke by-products for refinement into high value-added chemical products. This strategy fits well with our business plan to focus on increasing our market share in China's coal chemical industry which has been growing rapidly." Mr. Lv. concluded, "We believe that SinoCoking is well positioned to take advantage of growth opportunities once the coke market recovers."
