NEW YORK and HARBIN, China, Nov. 17, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Jianye Greentech Holdings, Ltd. (OTCBB:AJGH), a leading China-based developer, manufacturer and distributor of alcohol-based automobile fuels and civil-use fuels, including methanol, ethanol, and blended fuels, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.

Q3 2010 financial highlights:

  • Revenue of $24.8 million versus $22.9 million for Q2 2010 and $0.0 million for Q3 2009
  • Gross profit of $3.3 million versus $2.9 million for Q2 2010 and $0.0 million for Q3 2009
  • Net income of $2.5 million, or $0.08 per share, versus $2.1 million, or $0.07 per share, for Q2 2010 and $0.0 million for Q2 2009

Mr. Haipeng Wang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer stated, "We are pleased to announce that the third quarter of 2010 has been another record quarter for American Jianye. Our revenue continued increasing sequentially, this time a full 8.3% higher than our already strong second quarter of 2010. We achieved these impressive results due to growing demand for our high-quality, alcohol-based fuels. These fuels are lower cost than petroleum fuels and burn with higher efficiency as well as significantly lower toxic waste emissions due to our proprietary and patented catalysts. We can provide customized blended fuels with alcohol content ranging between 15% and 85% depending upon the needs of the customer. And unlike conventional alcohol blends, our fuels do not require any modification to the automobile engine or gas station equipment—a major competitive advantage."

Mr. Haipeng Wang continued, "As China's economy and the number of domestic automobiles continues to grow, the demand for fuel has increased dramatically.  This, in turn, has inspired a growing number of Chinese fuel distributors to promote alcohol-blended fuel. American Jianye has a strong position within this fast-growing industry as a result of its cutting-edge technology and established sales channels. As evidence, we achieved a number of major milestones this past quarter. First, the Harbin City Government is considering our recommendation to reduce its emissions of greenhouse gas by means of requiring taxis and buses to use American Jianye's alcohol-based fuels.  Secondly, the Harbin City Government has supported our proposal to officially promote American Jianye Clean Fuel in the city of Harbin."

"Additionally, our clean fuel took part in tests in Australia, performed by the Australia Race Car Association, under the sponsorship of the Ford Company.  In these objective third-party tests, a car using American Jianye's clean fuel performed a full 2 seconds faster than the same car using a leading competitor's fuel."

"Finally, we announced the opening of our first gas station in Tieling, located a short distance from our fuel refinery. By establishing our own gas stations, devoted to promoting American Jianye fuels, we are able to raise awareness of our brand while capturing additional margin."

"In response to the growing demand for our fuels, we are in the process of building two new production facilities. These facilities are strategically located in the north, within Tieling, and in the south, within Guangxi. These two production facilities will have combined capacity of more than 400,000 tons per year. Once operating at full capacity, we believe these facilities can support close to $200 million per year each, with 10% operating profit margins. We expect the Guangxi facility to commence operations during the first quarter of 2011, followed by the Tieling facility, which should commence operations by end of 2011."

Mr. Haipeng Wang concluded, "As a result of our rapid growth, our investment in new production facilities, and the need to cover raw material costs upfront, our working capital has been constrained. Nevertheless, we have successfully kept 20% of our DSOs to less than 30 days with the remaining 80% at less than 60 days, which is better than the industry average and we have complete confidence in the quality of our receivables given the size and reputation of our customers. Looking ahead, we see our balance sheet and cash flow continuing to improve and we remain extremely confident in our prior guidance of at least $90 million in sales and net income of more than $9 million, or $0.29 per share." 

Revenue for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010 was $24.8 million, compared to $0 for the third quarter ended September 30, 2009. Gross profit was $3.3 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010. Net income for the three months ended September 30, 2010 was $2.5 million, or $0.08 per diluted share.

Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 was $57.3 million, compared to $0 for the nine months ended September 30, 2009. Gross profit was $7.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2010. Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 was $5.7 million, or $0.18 per diluted share.
