  • Revenue decreased by 10.6% to $33.5 million, primarily attributable to a decrease in overall sales volume and partially offset by an increase in blended average selling prices ("ASPs") particularly for regular CMP and Light-Weight CMP that increased by 59.4% and 47.9%, respectively. The decrease in sales volume was primarily due to the continued government-mandated restriction on production in compliance with environmental regulation and due to our replacement of outdated paper facilities.
  • Gross profit decreased by 1.5% to $7.2 million. Gross margin increased by 2.0 percentage points to 21.6%. The increase in gross margin was primarily related to CMP as a result of significant increase in ASP.
  • Net income was $1.6 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, compared to $3.0 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, for the same period of last year.
  • Earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization ("EBITDA") decreased by 23.7% to $6.5 million.

Zhenyong Liu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Orient Paper, commented, "Our third quarter results continued to be impacted by the government mandated restriction on production. In addition, our production was suspended in September 2017 during the replacement of all of our coal burning boilers with gas boilers in compliance with the latest government regulations. Total sales volume decreased by 36.2% to 61,903 tonnes, leading to a 10.6% decrease in total revenue in the third quarter. Gross margin improved as a result of increase in ASPs for regular CMP and light-weight CMP. Looking ahead, as the government continues to promulgate and fully implement rules and regulations on environmental protections, outdated productions in paper industry are accelerating to phase out, we believe large-scale enterprises like us will benefit from industry consolidation as a result of the phasing out of outdated productions for a long-term sustainable development. We expect the overall price and market demand will show an upward trend in the near future and the Company's operations will continue to improve."

Third Quarter 2017 Financial Results

Revenue

For the third quarter of 2017, total revenue decreased by $4.0 million, or 10.6%, to $33.5 million from $37.5 million for the same period of last year. The decrease in total revenue was mainly due to decreases in sales volume across all product categories and partially offset by increase in blended ASP. The restrictions on our production volume by the Chinese government remained in place during the quarter. Additionally, our production was interrupted in September 2017 as we removed all coal burning boilers and started to replace them with gas boilers in compliance with the latest government regulation. Production was suspended during the replacement of boilers. As a result, the production volume of regular CMP, light-Weight CMP and offset printing paper in the third quarter of 2017 declined and sales of these products decreased accordingly. The following table summarizes revenue, volume and ASP by product for the third quarter of 2017 and 2016, respectively:

Revenue from CMP, including both regular CMP and light-Weight CMP, increased by $1.0 million, or 3.6%, to $27.4 million and accounted for 81.8% of total revenue for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $26.4 million, or 70.6%, of total revenue for the same period of last year. The Company sold 53,375 tonnes of CMP at an ASP of $513/tonne in the third quarter of 2017, compared to 81,035 tonnes at an ASP of $326/tonne in the same period of last year.

Of the total CMP sales, revenue from regular CMP increased by $0.1 million, or 0.7%, to $22.4 million, resulting from sales of 43,202 tonnes at an ASP of $518/tonne, during the third quarter of 2017, compared to revenue of $22.2 million, resulting from sales of 68,422 tonnes at an ASP of $325/tonne, for the same period of last year. Revenue from light-weight CMP increased by $0.8 million, or 19.5%, to $5.0 million, resulting from sales of 10,173 tonnes at an ASP of $491/tonne for the third quarter of 2017, compared to revenue of $4.2 million, resulting from sales of 12,613 tonnes at an ASP of $332/tonne for the same period of last year.

Revenue from offset printing paper decreased by $3.9 million, or 41.6%, to $5.5 million for the third quarter of 2017, from $9.3 million for the same period of last year. The Company sold 8,035 tonnes of offset printing paper at an ASP of $679/tonne in the third quarter of 2017, compared to 14,571 tonnes at an ASP of $641/tonne in the same period of last year.

Revenue from tissue paper products decreased by $1.0 million, or 59.5%, to $0.7 million for the third quarter of 2017, from $1.6 million for the same period of last year. The Company sold 493 tonnes of tissue paper products at an ASP of $1,339/tonne in the third quarter of 2017, compared to 1,327 tonnes at an ASP of $1,227/tonne in the same period of last year.

We had no revenue from digital photo paper for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $64,671, resulting from sales of 38 tonnes at an ASP of $1,702/tonne, in the same period of last year. In June 2016, we suspended the production of digital photo paper due to low market demand for our products and are now upgrading the production line to produce more competitive products. We expect to resume our digital photo paper production in the near future.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Total cost of sales decreased by $3.8 million, or 12.8%, to $26.3 million for the third quarter of 2017, from $30.1 million for the same period of last year. Cost of sales per tonne was $425 for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $311 for the same period of last year. The increase in overall cost of sales per tonne was mainly attributable to the higher average unit purchase costs of recycled paper board, cost of recycled white scrap paper and additional subsidies to the labors during the production restriction, and partially offset by the use of natural gas and liquefied gas to replace coal into the production. Costs of sales per tonne for regular CMP, light-weight CMP, offset printing paper, tissue paper products, and digital photo paper were, $402, $364, $573, $1,249, and $nil, respectively, for the third quarter of 2017, compared to $273, $251, $464, $1,075, and $2,151, respectively, for the same period of last year.

Total gross profit decreased by $0.1 million, or 1.5%, to $7.2 million for the third quarter of 2017, from $7.3 million for the same period of last year.

Gross margins for regular CMP, light-weight CMP, offset printing paper, tissue paper products, and digital photo paper were 22.5%, 25.8%, 15.6%, 6.7% and nil, respectively, for the third quarter of 2017, compared to 16.0%, 24.3%, 27.5%, 12.4%, and -26.4%, respectively, for the same period of last year.

Selling, General and Administrative Expenses

Selling, general and administrative expenses ("SG&A") increased by $0.2 million, or 9.6%, to $2.8 million for the third quarter of 2017 from $2.6 million for the same period of last year.

Note 1: Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In addition to our U.S. GAAP results, this press release includes a discussion of EBITDA, a non-GAAP financial measure as defined by the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC"). The Company defines EBITDA as net income before interest, income taxes, depreciation and amortization. EBITDA is a key measure used by management to evaluate our results and make strategic decisions. Management believes this measure is useful to investors because it is an indicator of operational performance. Because not all companies use identical calculations, the Company's presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies, and should not be viewed as an alternative to measures of financial performance or changes in cash flows calculated in accordance with the U.S. GAAP.

For nine months ended September 30, 2017, total revenue decreased by $21.8 million, or 21.1%, to $81.6 million from $103.4 million for the same period of last year.
