BEIJING, Aug. 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- eFuture Information Technology Inc. (Nasdaq:EFUT) (the "Company" or "eFuture"), a leading provider of software and services in China's rapidly growing retail and consumer goods industries, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2013.

Second Quarter 2013 Financial Highlights

  • Total revenue increased 15% year-over-year to RMB45.1 million (US$7.3 million).
  • Gross profit decreased 1% year-over-year to RMB13.8 million (US$2.3 million).
  • Adjusted EBITDA was minus RMB3.4 million (US$0.5 million), compared to an adjusted EBITDA of minus RMB21,793 in the second quarter 2012.
  • Operating loss was RMB5.2 million (US$0.8 million), compared to an operating loss of RMB5.4 million in the second quarter 2012.
  • Net loss was RMB4.9 million (US$0.8 million), compared to a net loss of RMB0.5 million in the second quarter 2012.
  • Adjusted net loss was RMB3.6 million (US$0.6 million), compared to an adjusted net income of RMB4.3 million in the second quarter 2012.
  • Basic and diluted loss per share was RMB1.16 (US$0.19), as compared to basic and diluted loss per share of RMB0.12 in the second quarter 2012.
  • Adjusted diluted loss per share was RMB0.84 (US$0.14), as compared to adjusted diluted earnings per share of RMB1.02 in the second quarter 2012.

Mr. Adam Yan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of eFuture, commented on the results, "eFuture delivered another quarter of solid year-over-year revenue growth reaching 15% over last year, and both revenue and adjusted EBITDA fell well within our guidance range.

"We have accelerated the expansion of our client base for the Software and Services business and have seen tremendous growth in the segments. The slight decrease in this quarter was attributed to a delay in revenue recognition as a result of clients postponing their shop opening schedules. The deferred revenue amounted to RMB20.4 million, which could have contributed to a growth of 52% and 43% for our Software and Services business on a year-over-year basis. We expect this revenue to be gradually recognized in second half of the year."

"Looking into the next quarter and the remainder of the year, we see enormous opportunities for growth amongst our key clients as they continue to penetrate into tier three and four cities, and also with multi-nationals clients as they expanded their footprints in China."

Mr. Yan concluded, "The continued sequential increase that brings the backlog to RMB152.0 million demonstrates the success of our sales strategy in expanding our client base and service offerings in store IT operation management through smart technology such as cloud, data and business analytics. We have received great feedback for our new offline-to-online offering, Omni-Channel Solution, which helps enable clients to meet the emerging requirement of businesses to connect and operate over the internet. We expect these offerings to drive expansion in the second half of the year. We remain focused in the execution of our strategy and the enhancement of our cost structure to ensure we are well positioned to capitalize opportunities in China's consumer market."

SECOND QUARTER 2013 FINANCIAL RESULTS

Revenue

Total revenue for the second quarter 2013 increased 15% to RMB45.1 million (US$7.3 million) from RMB39.3 million in the second quarter 2012.

Revenue Breakdown

2Q12 2Q13
RMB '000 RMB '000 USD '000 Y-o-Y Change
Software license sales 15,548 12,879 2,099 -17%
Hardware sales 3,198 12,312 2,006 285%
Service fee income 20,575 19,862 3,236 -3%
Total 39,321 45,053 7,341 15%

Software license revenue for the second quarter 2013 decreased 17% year-over-year to RMB12.9 million (US$2.1 million) from RMB15.5 million in the second quarter 2012. The decrease was primarily attributable to project delays, which amounted to RMB10.8 million.

Hardware revenue in the second quarter 2013 increased 285% year-over-year to RMB12.3 million (US$2.0 million) from RMB3.2 million in the second quarter 2012. The increase was a result of the completion of a few one-off projects for three key customers in Logistics, Department Store and Grocery industries.

Service fee income for the second quarter 2013 decreased 3% year-over-year to RMB19.9 million (US$3.2 million) from RMB20.6 million in the second quarter 2012, which was primarily attributable to project delays, amounting to RMB9.6 million.

Cost of Revenue

Cost of revenue for the second quarter 2013 increased 23% to RMB31.2 million (US$5.1 million) from RMB25.4 million in the second quarter 2012.

Cost of Revenue Breakdown

2Q12 2Q13
RMB '000 RMB '000 USD '000 Y-o-Y Change
Cost of software license sales 7,497 3,457 563 -54%
Cost of hardware sales 3,075 10,204 1,663 232%
Cost of service fee 12,563 16,662 2,715 33%

Amortization of software costs 620 823 134 33%
Total 25,383 31,218 5,087 23%

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit decreased by 1% year-over-year to RMB13.8 million (US$2.3 million) from RMB13.9 million in the second quarter 2012, and consolidated gross margin for the second quarter 2013 was 31%, compared with 35% in the second quarter 2012. The decrease was mainly due to a RMB3.5 million non-cash inventory impairment projection completed for accounting purposes under the Cost of Revenue line in Service Fee Income.

Operating Expenses

Research and development ("R&D") expenses for the second quarter 2013 decreased 58% year-over-year to RMB0.5 million (US$89,516), or 1% of total revenue, compared with RMB1.3 million, or 3% of total revenue in the second quarter 2012. The decrease in R&D expenses was primarily attributable to decreased share-based compensation expenses of RMB0.9 million as the employee incentive plan granted in December 2009 ended its vesting period at the end of 2012.

General and administrative expenses ("G&A") for the second quarter 2013 decreased 13% year-over-year to RMB7.6 million (US$1.2 million), representing 17% of total revenue, compared with RMB8.7 million, or 22% of total revenue in the second quarter 2012. The decrease in G&A expenses was primarily attributable to decreased share-based compensation expenses of RMB2.0 million, as the employee incentive plan granted in December 2009 ended its vesting period at the end of 2012 and was partially offset by a RMB1.0 million staff cost invested to enhanced employee's benefit since early 2013.

Selling and distribution ("S&D") expenses for the second quarter 2013 increased 17% year-over-year to RMB10.9 million (US$1.8 million), representing 24% of total revenue, compared with RMB9.3 million, or 24% of total revenue in the second quarter 2012. The increase in S&D expenses was primarily attributable to an increased investment in marketing activities to promote eFuture's brand and an increased investment in people by adopting an enhanced employee benefit scheme since early 2013.

Operating Loss

Operating loss in the second quarter 2013 was RMB5.2 million (US$0.8 million), compared to operating loss of RMB5.4million in the second quarter 2012.

Net Loss/Adjusted Net Loss and Loss Per Share/Adjusted Loss Per Share

Second quarter 2013 net loss was RMB4.9 million (US$0.8 million), compared with a net loss of RMB0.5 million in the second quarter 2012. Adjusted net loss for the second quarter 2013 was RMB3.6 million (US$0.6 million), compared with an adjusted net income of RMB4.3 million in the second quarter 2012.

Basic and diluted loss per share in the second quarter 2013 was RMB1.16 (US$0.19), compared to basic and diluted loss per share of RMB0.12 in the second quarter 2012. Adjusted diluted loss per share was RMB0.84 (US$0.14), compared to adjusted diluted earnings per share of RMB1.02 in the second quarter 2012.

EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA for the second quarter 2013 was minus RMB3.4 million (US$0.5 million), compared to minus RMB21,793 in the second quarter 2012.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of June 30, 2013, cash and cash equivalents were RMB39.5 million (US$6.4 million), a decrease of RMB39.9 million from RMB79.4 million as of December 31, 2012. The decrease was primarily attributable to the payment of annual bonuses for staffs and the expenditure spent on customers' projects.

Total accounts receivable as of June 30, 2013 decreased 11% to RMB22.5 million (US$3.7 million) from RMB25.2 million as of December 31, 2012. The decrease was a result of our continuous efforts put in to strengthen our balance sheet by improving on trade receivables collection.

Inventory and work in process as of June 30, 2013 increased 26% to RMB24.4 million (US$4.0 million) from RMB19.3 million as of December 31, 2012. The increase was primarily attributable to delayed projects which had not reached the point of revenue recognition.

For the quarter ended June 30, 2013, net cash provided by operating activities was RMB1.8 million (US$0.3 million). Net cash used in investing activities was RMB5.9 million (US$1.0 million).

THIRD QUARTER 2013 GUIDANCE

eFuture expects total revenue for the third quarter 2013 to be in the range of RMB40 million (US$6.5 million) to RMB45 million (US$7.3 million). Adjusted EBITDA for the third quarter 2013 is expected to be in the range of minus RMB3 million (US$0.5 million) to minus RMB1 million (US$0.2 million).

CURRENCY CONVENIENCE TRANSLATION

For the convenience of readers, certain RMB amounts have been translated into US dollars at the rate of RMB6.1374 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate for US dollars in effect on June 30, 2013 for cable transfers of RMB per U.S. dollar as certified for customs purposes by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

USE OF NON-GAAP FINANCIAL MEASURES

To supplement eFuture's unaudited consolidated financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, eFuture uses the following non-GAAP measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission: (i) adjusted EBITDA excluding amortization of acquired software technology, amortization of intangibles, impairment of intangible assets, share-based compensation expenses and depreciation; (ii) adjusted net income excluding amortization of acquired software technology, amortization of intangibles, impairment of intangible assets, share-based compensation expenses and accretion on convertible notes; and (iii) adjusted basic and diluted earnings per share excluding amortization of acquired software technology, amortization of intangibles, share-based compensation expenses and accretion on convertible notes.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

eFuture believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective or be indicative of its operating performance. eFuture believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing the Company's performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to eFuture's historical performance and liquidity. eFuture computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter. The Company believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. The accompanying paragraphs have more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.

eFuture's management also believes that EBITDA, defined as earnings before interest, income tax expense, depreciation and amortization is a useful financial metric to assess its operating and financial performance before the impact of investing and financing transactions and income taxes. In addition, eFuture's management believes that EBITDA is widely used by other companies in the software industry and may be used by investors as a measure of its financial performance. Given the significant investments that eFuture has made in property, equipment, depreciation and amortization expense comprises a meaningful portion of the Company's cost structure. eFuture's management believes that EBITDA will provide investors with a useful tool for comparability between periods because it eliminates depreciation and amortization expense attributable to capital expenditures. The presentation of EBITDA should not be construed as an indication that the Company's future results will be unaffected by other charges and gains eFuture considers to be outside the ordinary course of its business.

The use of EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations. Depreciation and amortization expense for various long-term assets, income tax expense, interest expense and interest income have been and will be incurred and are not reflected in the presentation of EBITDA. Further, share-based compensation expenses have been and will be incurred and are not reflected in the presentation of adjusted EBITDA. Each of these items should also be considered in the overall evaluation of eFuture's financial results. The term EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA is not defined under U.S. GAAP, and EBITDA or adjusted EBITDA is not a measure of net income, operating income, operating performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. When assessing eFuture's operating and financial performance, you should not consider this data in isolation or as a substitute for its net income, operating income or any other operating performance measure that is calculated in accordance with U.S. GAAP. In addition, the Company's EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA may not be comparable to EBITDA or similarly titled measures utilized by other companies since such other companies may not calculate EBITDA in the same manner as eFuture does.
