 China Shengda Packaging Group Inc. Reports Full Year 2013 Financial Results  PR Newswire  HANGZHOU, China, March 28, 2014  HANGZHOU, China, March 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Shengda Packaging Group Inc. (NASDAQ: CPGI) ("Shengda" or the "Company"), a leading Chinese paper packaging company, today reported its financial results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013.  "2013 was another challenging year for the paper packaging industry as China's economy appeared to lose some steam in the past couple of years. This, combined with tightened credit environment, compelled many of our customers to put their expansion plans on hold, and therefore, our ability to grow our paper carton business. Despite these challenges, we grew our revenues by 7.1% to $134.2 million with the paper mill at our Shuangsheng subsidiary, generating $18.5 million in sales which offset the slight decline in our paper carton business," commented Mr. Daliang Teng, Chief Executive Officer of Shengda, "Looking ahead, as the central government starts to induce a transition from the pursuit of pure GDP growth to more sustainable and quality economic growth, we believe the outlook for the paper packaging industry remains tempered in the near term. However, as we continue focusing on growing our business through both vertical integration and geographical expansion, we are confident of the long-term growth prospect of our business."  Full Year 2013 Financial Highlights:    oRevenues increased by 7.1% year-over-year to $134.2 million for the year     of 2013 with revenues of paper cartons and other paper products decreasing     4.7% to $119.4 million mainly due to decrease in sales volume.    oThe paper mill at our Shuangsheng subsidiary, which officially went into     production in June 2013, produced 51.5 thousand tons of corrugating medium     paper and generated $18.5 million in revenues for the year of 2013.   oGross profit decreased by 13.8% to $19.5million for the year of 2013.     Gross margin was 14.5% for the year of 2013 compared to 18.0% for the year     of 2012. The decreases in gross profit and gross margin were mainly     related to high production cost of corrugating medium paper at our paper     mill.   oNet income attributable to the Company's stockholders decreased by 50.8%,     to $2.7 million for the year of 2013.   oBasic and diluted earnings per share were $0.07 for the year of 2013,     compared to $0.14 for the year of 2012.

The decrease in revenues of paper cartons was a result of continued challenges in domestic and foreign economic environment that led to 5.1% decline in sales volume of paper cartons to 301.2 million square meters for the year of 2013 from 317.4 million square meters for the year of 2012. Our paper mill generated $18.5 million revenues from corrugating medium paper with sales volume of 51.5 thousand tons and average selling price of $359 per ton. Eliminating internal sales of approximately $3.8 million, revenues of external sales of corrugating medium paper was $14.7 million or 11% of total revenues for the year of 2013.

Gross profit decreased by $3.1 million, or 13.8%, to $19.5 million for the year of 2013 from $22.6 million for the year of 2012. Gross margin dropped by approximately 3.5 points to 14.5% for the year of 2013 from 18.0% for the year of 2012.

Selling expenses increased by $0.7 million, or 13.7%, to $5.8 million for the year of 2013 from $5.1 million for the year of 2012. The increase was mainly due to higher business development expenses and freight expenses.

General and administrative expenses increased by $0.5 million, or 4.7%, to $11.5 million for the year of 2013 from $11.0 million for the year of 2012.
