- $2.1 million of cash and no long-term debt as of September 30, 2010
Jianliang Shi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are pleased to announce very strong year-over-year growth in revenue and net income. China Green Energy Industries is extremely well-positioned both within the high tech and environmentally friendly product markets, as evidenced by our strong historic revenue growth, our premier customer base, and long-term relationships with major OEMs and global Fortune 500 companies."
"Our three main business lines consist of light-weight electric vehicles (LEV), cryogen-free refrigerators, and also network and HDMI cables. Our legacy network and HDMI cable business continues to grow rapidly and generate solid cash flow to fuel our growth. At the same time, we have increased our focus on environmentally friendly products, which are in great demand both in China and abroad. Specifically, we now private label our cryogen-free refrigerators for such global brands as Ford, Pepsi, Coca-Cola, Disney, etc. Our cryogen-free refrigerators use less electricity and cost less than conventional refrigerators. Moreover, our products do not contain Freon or cause pollution during the manufacturing process. As a result, we have seen strong consumer demand for this product line."
"Most importantly, we are extremely excited about the outlook for the LEV business. Although still a relatively small percentage of our overall revenue, we expect the LEV business to grow dramatically in the coming months and years. We initially launched this business in 2008 with a single large OEM customer in the Netherlands. We believe our success with this European customer is a direct result of our superior product and low-cost manufacturing. We are preparing to launch LEVs domestically in China and anticipate this business will grow rapidly based on our current sales pipeline. "
Mr. Shi concluded, "Overall, we believe we have built a highly scalable operation and expect to gain significant operating leverage as we continue to grow revenue and increase utilization of our existing capacity, which in turn, will drive meaningful value for shareholders."
Revenue for the third quarter of 2010 increased 58.0% to $6.1 million from $3.9 million for the same period last year.
