JIANGSU, China, May 16, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- China Green Energy Industries, Inc., (OTCBB:CGRE), a leading manufacturer and distributor of high tech and environmentally friendly consumer products, today announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011.
Mr. Jianliang Shi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented, "Our revenue and net income for the first quarter of 2011 were impacted by several factors. Foremost among these, we reallocated workers from our cable and refrigerator businesses to our LEV factory in anticipation of increased production requirements associated with our acquisition of the NICONIA LEV brand and its retail sales network. The acquisition has progressed seamlessly and we have experienced a sharp increase in LEV sales beginning in the second quarter. Moreover, we have since resolved the worker shortage within our cable and refrigerator business lines and expect both of these businesses to resume normal sales levels in the second quarter. As a result, we remain confident in achieving our prior guidance of $14 million net income, or $.60 per diluted share, which would represent more than a 240% increase in net income from $4.1 million in 2010.
"We are encouraged by the progress of our recent acquisition of the NICONIA brand of LEVs and its sales network of 350 retail stores. We project that our combined LEV business unit will achieve sales in excess of $45 million in 2011 and we believe we can maintain organic growth in excess of 50% annually. Our ability to rapidly launch new products, coupled with our established sales and distribution network, should enable us to continue our strong organic growth. Moreover, we have built a solid infrastructure that should enable us to achieve significant operating efficiency and generate meaningful value for shareholders in 2011 and for years to come."
Revenue for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011 decreased to $3.27 million compared to $5.16 million for the same period the previous year. Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $0.57 million compared to $1.49 million for the same period in 2010. Operating loss for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $0.33 million compared to operating income of $1.01 million for the same period the previous year. Net loss for the three months ended March 31, 2011 was $0.32 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net income of $0.76 million, or $0.04 per diluted share, for the same period the previous year.
