NEW YORK and HARBIN, China, Aug. 27, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Jianye Greetech 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 three and six months ended June 30, 2010.
Q2 2010 financial highlights:
- Revenue of $22.9 million versus $9.6 million for Q1 2010 and $0.0 million for Q2 2009
- Gross profit of $2.9 million versus $1.5 million for Q1 2010 and $0.0 million for Q2 2009
- Operating income of $2.9 million versus $1.4 million for Q1 2010 and $0.0 million for Q2 2009
- Net income of $2.1 million, or $0.07 per share, versus $1.1 million, or $0.03 per share for Q1 2010 and $0.0 million for Q2 2009
Mr. Haipeng Wang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated, "We are extremely pleased to announce record revenue and net income for the second quarter of 2010. Our revenue increased sequentially by 138% versus the first quarter of 2010. We attribute this improvement to our expanded sales and marketing initiatives and growing demand for methanol-based and ethanol-based fuels. Our alcohol-based fuels burn with higher efficiency and significantly lower toxic waste emissions than unleaded gasoline. Additionally, due to the lower costs of the raw materials used in the manufacturing process, the cost of these fuels is, on average, about 20-30% less than comparable unleaded gasoline in China."
"Overall, we see demand for these fuels continuing to increase as China encourages the use of alcohol fuel as a substitute for gasoline. It is estimated that by 2010 the annual production capacity of domestic alcohol-based automobile fuel in China will reach 2 million tons. In China alone, there are approximately 35 million cars on the road today and experts predict that number will reach 120 million by 2020. At the same time, worldwide demand for alcohol fuel is increasing, due to the limited supply and the high costs of gasoline. We believe we are extremely well positioned to capitalize on these trends due to our strong industry relationships and established distribution channels. This fact is best illustrated by our growth from a startup in 2009 to now generating over $30 million of sales in the first 6 months of this year alone."
Mr. Haipeng Wang concluded, "The next phase of our growth entails not only distributing, but also manufacturing alcohol-based fuels. Our plan is to construct fuel producing facilities in Tieling City, Liaoning Province and another in the Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region of Southern China. As a vertically integrated manufacturer and distributor, we believe we can further reduce the cost of these fuels and provide an even more compelling value proposition for the end customer. We look forward to providing regular updates to our shareholders regarding this strategy in the coming months."
