Bonso Electronics Reports Year End Results

HONG KONG, Aug. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bonso Electronics International, Inc. (NASDAQ:BNSO), a designer and manufacturer of sensor based products, reported its financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015.

The Company reported a net income of $1.11 million or $0.21 basic and diluted income per share for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015, compared to a net loss of $0.22 million or $0.04 basic and diluted loss per share for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014. As a result, the Company’s book value per share became $2.26 as of March 31, 2015. The Company has filed its Annual Report on Form 20-F, which includes its audited financial statements for its fiscal year ended March 31, 2015, with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The Company’s Annual Report is available on the SEC's website at http://www.sec.gov.

Anthony So, the Chief Executive Officer of Bonso, stated, "We are pleased that our manufacturing facility in Xinxing, PRC, has been running smoothly for three years, and that the leasehold improvements to our new office building will be completed by December 2015. As a result, our future capital expenditures at our new manufacturing facility will be much less when compared to prior years."

Mr. So noted, "Bonso has rented its old Shenzhen factory to a third party and will receive approximately $1.2 million of rental income per year. Also, Bonso intends to begin the process of seeking the necessary governmental approvals to permit it to redevelop the Shenzhen factory into a high-end commercial complex in a few years that will contain retail space, office space and some residential space. If we are successful in obtaining the necessary governmental approvals for the redevelopment, we believe that the rental income derived from leasing the redeveloped property will be a significant contributing factor to our profit in the future."

Mr. So stated, "The Company’s current stock price is trading well below our book value of $2.26 as of March 31, 2015, and I believe that the Company is undervalued and the market has not accounted for the contribution from the rent of our old Shenzhen property."
