Hongli Clean Energy Technologies Corp. Reports Fiscal Year 2015 Financial Results

PINGDINGSHAN, China, Oct. 13, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hongli Clean Energy Technologies Corp. (NASDAQ:CETC) (“Hongli” or the “Company”) (formerly known as SinoCoking Coal and Coke Chemical Industries, Inc.), a vertically integrated producer of clean energy products located in Henan Province, today reported its financial results for the fiscal year 2015, which ended June 30, 2015.

4QFY2015 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue decreased by 1.0% to $8.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 (4QFY2015), with syngas sales offsetting decreases in sales volume and the average selling prices of coke and coal products.

  • Revenue of syngas was $5.2 million for 4QFY2015 with sales volume of 51.6 million cubic meters and average selling price per cubic meter of $0.10, which revenue accounted for 61.0% of total revenue, highlighting the Company’s successful transformation from a coke and coal producer to clean energy producer.

  • Gross profit increased by $2.3 million, or 163.0%, to $3.7 million and gross margin improved by 26.8 points to 43.0% for 4QFY2015, the highest level in recent years, thanks to the contribution from the higher margin syngas sales.

  • Net loss for 4QFY2015 was ($7.9) million, or ($0.33) per diluted share, compared to net loss of ($0.8) million, or ($0.04) per diluted share, for the same period of last fiscal year. The decrease in net income was mainly related to one-time charges of $8.4 million for bad debt and $2.3 million for asset impairment.

FY2015 Financial Highlights:

  • Revenue decreased by 9.3% to $45.6 million for FY2015, mainly due to decreased sales volume and decreases in the average selling prices of coke and coal products and partially offset by the contribution of syngas sales which started in October 2014.

  • Revenue of syngas was $12.4 million for FY2015 with sales volume of 124.1 million cubic meters and average selling price per cubic meter of $0.10, which revenue accounted for 27.3% of total revenue.

  • Gross profit increased by $3.6 million, or 40.6%, to $12.6 million for FY2015. Gross margin improved by 9.8 percentage points to the highest in four years to 27.7%. The increase in gross profit and gross margin were mainly related to high-margin syngas sales in FY2015.

  • Net loss for FY2015 was ($3.5) million, or ($0.15) per diluted share, compared to net income of $1.0 million, or $0.05 per diluted share, for FY2014. The decrease in net income was mainly related to increases at one-time charges of $9.9 million for bad debt and $2.3 million for asset impairment.

Mr. Jianhua Lv, Chairman and CEO of Hongli commented, "Fiscal year 2015 was a transitional year for Hongli as our first coke gasification facility (the “Stage I Facility”) started to generate meaningful revenue following the completion of its construction in September 2014, paving the way for Hongli’s transformation from a producer of coal and coke products to a vertically-integrated producer of clean energy products, including washed coal, “medium” or mid-coal and coal slurries, coke, coke powder, coal tar and crude benzol, syngas and electricity. This is particularly significant for Hongli given the unpredictable nature of our coal business due to the ongoing mining moratorium and the weak outlook for our coke business in wake of China’s ‘new normal’ of slower growth and Chinese steelmakers’ continuing battle of overcapacity, inventory glut, and weak prices.”

Mr. Lv continued, “We ended the fiscal year on a strong note with the new syngas business contributing 27.3% of total revenue and gross margin reaching the highest level in recent years, which we believe indicates that our new strategy is starting to bear fruit. Looking ahead, as we continue to ramp up our coke gasification facility and push forward our underground coal gasification (“UCG”) initiative, Hongli is well positioned for success in years to come, in our view.”

Revenue

For the three months ended June 30, 2015, total revenue decreased by approximately $0.1 million, or 1.0%, to $8.5 million from $8.6 million for the same period of last fiscal year as a result of decreases in sales of coke and coal products which was partially offset by sales of syngas which have started to generate revenue from the second quarter of fiscal year 2015.

Revenue of coke products, including finished coke, coke powder, coal tar, and crude benzol, decreased by $5.1 million, or 62.9%, to $3.0 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, compared to $8.2 million for the same period of last fiscal year. The Company sold 18,362 metric tons of coke products during the three months ended June 30, 2015, a decrease of 22,536 metric tons, or 55.1%, from 40,898 metric tons for the same period of last fiscal year. Average selling price per metric ton for coke products was $165 for the three months ended June 30, 2015, compared to $199 for the same period of last fiscal year. The decrease in sales of coke products was mainly due to continued weakness in coke market demand as well as the Company’s use of coke to produce syngas.

Revenue of coal products, including unprocessed metallurgical coal, processed or washed coal, mid-coal and coal slurries, decreased by $0.1 million, or 33.0%, to $0.3 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, compared to $0.4 million for the same period of last fiscal year. The Company sold 9,176 metric tons of coal products during the three months ended June 30, 2015, a decrease of 1,320 metric tons, or 12.6%, from 10,496 metric tons for the same period of last fiscal year. Average selling price per metric ton for coal products was $31 for the three months ended June 30, 2015, compared to $41 for the same period of last fiscal year. The decrease in sales of coal products was mainly related to unstable and unpredictable raw coal supply from our coal mines affected by the ongoing mining moratorium. We are unable to anticipate when the moratorium or policy will change to allow us to reopen our mining activities.

Revenue of syngas from our coke gasification facility, which was completed and commenced production in October 2014, was $5.2 million, or 61.0% of total revenue, with sales volume of 51.6 million cubic meters and average selling price per cubic meter of $0.10. The Company had long-term syngas supply agreements with customers to provide syngas at a fixed rate of $0.10 per cubic meter.

Cost of revenue decreased by $2.4 million, or 32.7%, to $4.8 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 from $7.2 million for the same period of last fiscal year. The decrease in cost of revenue was mainly as a result of lower sales volume for our coke and coal products. Gross profit increased by $2.3 million, or 163.0%, to $3.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 from $1.4 million for the same period of last fiscal year.

Operating expenses, including selling, general and administrative expenses, increased by $11.0 million to $11.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015 from $0.7 million for the same period of last fiscal year. The increase in operating expenses was mainly due to increases in bad debt expense of $8.4 million and asset impairment charges of $2.3 million. As a result, operating loss was $8.1 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, compared to operating income of $0.7 million for the same period of last fiscal year.

Total other income was $0.5 million for the three months ended June 30, 2015, compared to total other expenses of ($1.2) million for the same period of last fiscal year. The change in total other income was mainly related to favorable impact of change in fair value of warrants of $1.8 million.

As a result of the foregoing, net loss for the three months ended June 30, 2015 was ($7.9) million, or ($0.33) per diluted share, compared to net loss of ($0.8) million, or ($0.04) per diluted share, for the same period of last fiscal year.
