Sany International 2019 interim profit surged 54.1% to RMB551.7 million on robust revenue growth, better cost control and successful market expansion

HONG KONG, Aug 22, 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - Sany International Holdings Company Limited ("Sany" or the "Company", together with subsidiaries, the "Group"; HKSE stock code: 631) announced today its unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2019 ("1H2019").

FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

- For 1H2019, the Group recorded revenue of approximately RMB3,043.7 million, up 38.6% from approximately RMB2,196.0 million for 1H2018. Such increase was mainly due to (1) higher demand for improvement and replacement of coal machinery equipment and the coal industry's accelerated development towards intelligent, unmanned, green and high-efficiency mining, higher revenue from the mining equipment segment; (2) the launch of large-scale port machinery into domestic mainstream ports and multiple river terminals due to improvements in brand influence; (3) the focus on R&D and innovation strategy that optimized product performance and quality and accordingly enhance market competitiveness; and (4) remarkable results from expansion to international markets.
- For 1H2019, the Group's profit margin before tax was approximately 21.0%, up 0.7 percentage points from the 20.3% for 1H2018, mainly due (1) actively controlled costs and increased product gross profit margin, especially the margins of integrated mining products, roadheaders and stacking machines; and (2) management expenses ratio (excluding R&D expenses) against revenue and lower selling expenses ratio against revenue due to digital transformation and improvement on internal operation efficiency.
- For 1H2019, the research and development expenses were approximately RMB209.2 million, up approximately 145.5% from approximately RMB85.2 million for 1H2018. For 1H2019, research and development expenses accounted for approximately 6.9% of revenue, up 3.0 percentage points from approximately 3.9% for 1H2018, mainly due to higher investments in R&D on new products, including Smart Mine, Intelligent Terminal, tunnel roadheader, integrated excavation, bolting and self-protection machine, unmanned electric truck, telehandler, automatic bridge and wide-bodied vehicles.
- For 1H2019, the Group's profit attributable to owners of the parent was approximately RMB551.7 million, up 54.1% from approximately RMB358.0 million for 1H2018. Basic earnings per share for 1H2019 were RMB0.18, up from RMB0.12 for 1H2018.
