NEW YORK and HARBIN, China, Sept. 29, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- China Digital Animation Development, Inc. (OTCBB:CHDA) today provided a business update and announced financial results for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2010.
Mr. Fu Qiang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased to report that China Digital Animation had a milestone year in which we realized our vision to become a streamlined entity focused on creating the best in digital animation. As a result, China Digital's animation services revenue grew an impressive 45% in fiscal 2010 to $5.1 million versus $3.6 million in fiscal 2009."
The company completed a number of key projects in 2010. They include post-production effects on Mooh Brothers and I Have a Dream, production services on Kitty Brocci, post-production animation on Fireman Sam and post-production animation of Q Dog and Red Square.
China Digital is currently working on 39 episodes for a fantasy series called Tritans in joint production with the Monstrous Studio in Singapore. These shows will be distributed in three languages worldwide: Chinese, English and Malay.
Revenue for fiscal 2010 totaled $6.1 million versus $6.0 million in fiscal 2009. The company derived 84% of its revenue from animation activities versus 60% of revenue from these activities in fiscal 2009. Gross profit for the year was $4.4 million, about even with fiscal 2009. The IT network installation business was terminated in fiscal 2009 and the online financial information delivery service at the beginning of 2010. Eliminating these divisions enabled China Digital Animation to reduce general and administrative expenses by 14% and selling expense by 6% year-over-year. The company's income from operations grew by 8%, even though overall revenue increased by only 1%, reflecting the discontinuation of IT systems and financial data services. Net income was approximately $2.5 million or $0.13 per share, versus $2.5 million or $0.13 per share in fiscal 2009.
As of June 30, 2010, the company had cash and cash equivalents of $6.2 million, working capital of $6.7 million, no long-term debt, and shareholders' equity of $14.7 million.
