Sino-Global Announces 2017 Year End Financial Results

Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd. (NASDAQ: SINO) (“Sino-Global”, the “Company” or “us”), a non-asset based global shipping and freight logistic integrated solution provider, today announced its financial and operating results for the three months and year ended June 30, 2017.

Management Comments

Mr. Lei Cao, Chief Executive Officer of Sino-Global, stated, “The fiscal 2017 year was a transformational period for the Company. We continued our restructuring efforts and as a result revenues increased over 56% compared to the prior year. We increased our profit margins, and turned an operating loss into an operating profit.”

Fiscal Year 2017 Operating Highlights

Mr. Cao continued, “In addition to our strong financial results, we successfully completed several key objectives during the fiscal year. A few of these achievements include:

  • The restructuring of our business and wind down of our shipping agency, ship management and shipping and chartering services;
  • Providing a viable solution to the increasing disconnect between traditional shipping services and inland logistics with the development and launch of our fully functional internet-based portal;
  • Partnering with a number of trucking operators in an effort to enhance both the functionality and awareness of our internet-based application; and
  • Entering into two joint project agreements that will further evolve our logistics strategy involving a shift from the current bulk cargo transportation model to a containerized model.

“We first noted our intentions to develop an internet-based logistics platform at the end of fiscal 2016 and since then, we have made significant progress with this platform. In the coming quarters, we expect to continue to leverage our infrastructure to grow and further establish our service network in the U.S., as well as create new business channels around the globe,” concluded Mr. Cao.

  • Total revenues increased by 151% to approximately $4.6 million for the three month period ended June 30, 2017. This increase was due to the Company’s expansion efforts in the following sectors: inland transportation management, freight logistics and container trucking services.
  • The Company’s gross profit for the period was $1.4 million, compared to $670,958  in the prior year period.  Gross profit margin during the period decreased to 31% from 36.5%, which was attributed to a decrease in profit as percentage of total revenue.
  • Operating income for the three months ended June 30, 2017 was $472,037, compared to an operating income of $1,516 for the comparable year.  This was primarily due to the increase in revenue from the Company’s inland transportation management and the introduction of freight logistics services as well as container trucking services in 2017.
  • For the three months ended June 30, 2017, the Company reported a net income of $873,952, compared to a net income of $34,316 for the same period in prior year.

  • Total revenues increased by approximately $4.1 million or 56.6% to $11.4 million during the year, compared to $7.3 million in the prior year.  This increase was due to the Company’s efforts to diversify its business resulting in an increase in revenues from the Company’s inland transportation management, freight logistic and container trucking services.
  • The Company’s gross profit for the year was $6.5 million, compared to $3.6 million in the prior year.  Gross profit margin during the year increased to 56.5% from 48.9%, which was attributed to an increase in total revenue and increased revenue derived from inland transportation services with high gross profit margin.
  • Operating income for the year ended June 30, 2017 was $3.1 million, compared to an operating loss of $1.2 million in the prior year. This was primarily due to an increase in revenue from the Company’s inland transportation management and the introduction of freight logistic services as well as container trucking services during the year, and a significant decrease in total operating expenses.
  • For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2017, the Company reported a net income of $3.6 million, compared to net loss of $2.3 million for the prior year.
