Fiscal Year 2019 Financial Highlights
Fiscal Year 2019 Financial Results
Revenue for the year ended June 30, 2019 decreased by $12.68 million, or 28.9%, to $31.22 million from $43.90 million for the same period of last year, mainly due to the decrease in sales across all products.
|For the Fiscal Years Ended June 30|
|($ millions)||Revenue||COGS||Gross Margin||Revenue||COGS||Gross Margin|
|Chinese medicinal herbal products||13.71||10.28||25.0||%||14.18||10.70||24.5||%|
|Other agricultural products||16.85||11.59||31.2||%||18.83||13.43||28.7||%|
Revenue from Luobuma products decreased by $10.22 million, or 93.9%, to $0.66 million for the year ended June 30, 2019 from $10.88 million for the same period of last year, mainly due to the decrease in revenue from Xinjiang Taihe of $8.21 million. As the nature environment in Xinjiang province is very vulnerable, the harvesting of wild Apocynum Venetum is strictly controlled by the local government, and the Company is required to obtain a permit from local authority before harvesting. In fiscal year 2019, the Company only managed to obtain the permit in the end of December 2018. The management estimated that it is unlikely to obtain new permit in the future, hence, the management decided to cease the wild Apocynum Venetum in Xinjiang province, and changed the Company’s strategy to develop industrial Apocynum Venetum business in Shanxi province instead. As a result, no revenue was generated by Xinjiang Taihe during the year ended June 30, 2019. The decrease was also due to the decrease in revenue from Tenet-Jove Xuzhou branch of $1.34 million as the business operation of this branch ceased in November 2017.
Revenue from Chinese medicinal herbal products decreased by $0.47 million, or 3.3%, to $13.71 million for the year ended June 30, 2019 from $14.18 million for the same period of last year. The sales of Chinese medicinal herbal products were comparatively stable during the year ended June 30, 2019 as compared to the same period in 2018. The decrease was due to the depreciation of RMB against US$. The average translation rate for the year ended June 30, 2019 and 2018 were at 1 RMB to 0.1466 USD and at 1 RMB to 0.1537 USD, respectively, which represented a decrease of 4.65%.
Revenue from other agricultural products decreased by $1.98 million, or 10.5%, to $16.85 million for the year ended June 30, 2019 from $18.83 million for the same period of last year. The decrease was mainly due to the decrease in sales volume of yew trees for the year ended June 30, 2019 as compared to the same period in 2018. The main reason of the decrease was that the Company sold $2.24 million in November 2017 to fulfill a one-time large order from one of the Company’s customers, Qingdao Ship Owners Association.
Gross profit and Gross Margin
Total cost of revenue decreased by $6.86 million, or 23.6%, to $22.25 million for the year ended June 30, 2019 from $29.11 million for the same period of last year. Gross profit decreased by $5.82 million, or 39.3%, to $8.97 million for the year ended June 30, 2019 from $14.79 million for the same period of last year. Overall gross margin decreased by 5.0 percentage points to 28.7% for the year ended June 30, 2019, compared to 33.7% for the same period of last year.
Gross margins for Luobuma products, Chinese medicinal herbal products, and other agricultural products were 54.6%, 25.0%, and 31.2%, respectively, for the year ended June 30, 2019. This compared to gross margins for Luobuma products, Chinese medicinal herbal products, and other agricultural products of 55.2%, 24.5%, and 28.7%, respectively, for the same period of last year.
General and administrative expenses increased by $4.17 million, or 104.6%, to $8.15 million for the year ended June 30, 2019 from $3.99 million for the same period of last year. The increase in general and administrative expenses was mainly due to an increase in bad debt expense of $4.12 million as well as an offering cost write-off of $0.43 million. The $0.43 million was the valuation of the Commitment Shares retained by IFG Fund upon termination of the Purchase Agreement and Registration Rights Agreement. The increase was partially offset by the decreased general and administrative expenses of $0.34 million for Tajite and Tiankunrunze as a result of reduced business activities during the year ended June 30, 2019.
Selling expenses decreased by $0.83 million, or 54.1%, to $0.70 million for the year ended June 30, 2019 from $1.53 million for the same period of last year. The decrease was primarily due to the decrease in selling expenses from Tenet-Jove Xuzhou branch of $0.26 million as the business operation of this branch ceased in November 2017. The decrease was also due to the decrease in advertising expenses, salary expenses and commissions from Tenet-Jove of $0.28 million, $0.14 million and $0.05 million for year ended June 30, 2019.
Operating income decreased by $9.16 million, or 98.8%, to $0.12 million for the year ended June 30, 2019 from $9.27 million for the same period of last year.
Net income decreased by $6.65 million, or 88.3%, to $0.88 million for the year ended June 30, 2019 from $7.53 million for the same period of last year. After the deduction of non-controlling interests, net income attributable to common shareholders for the year ended June 30, 2019 was $0.80 million, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share. This compared to net income attributable to common shareholders of $7.59 million, $0.36 per basic and diluted share, for the same period of last year.
As of June 30, 2019, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $35.33 million, compared to $31.49 million as of June 30, 2018. Net cash provided by operating activities was $3.50 million for the year ended June 30, 2019, compared to $9.85 million for the same period of last year. Net cash used in investing activities was $0.25 million for the year ended June 30, 2019, compared to $0.75 million for the same period of last year. Net cash provided by financing activities was $1.81 million for the year ended June 30, 2019, compared to net cash used in financing activities of $0.49 million for the same period of last year.
