China Industrial Steel, Inc. Reports Third Quarter Financial Results

Company Remains Profitable Year-To-Date

NEW YORK, Nov. 16, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- China Industrial Steel, Inc. (the "Company") (OTC: CDNN) today announced its earnings for the quarter ended September 30, 2012. The Company, filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission on November 14, 2012.

China Industrial Steel manufactures and sells in the Chinese domestic market four products; steel plate, steel bar, steel wire, and steel billet. Steel plate, steel wire and steel bar are primarily used in the construction of buildings and in large scale infrastructure projects, such as roads and bridges. Steel plate is also utilized by the ship building industry, and in the construction of pipelines. The Company also manufactures and sells steel billet, a semi-finished product, which is utilized as a raw material by other manufacturers. China Industrial Steel also sells some of the byproducts of its production process, including offcuts of steel plate and steel drop. Based on market conditions for these byproducts, the company may alternatively utilize them in its own manufacturing processes.

Summary of the Third Quarter 2012 Financials

  • Revenues for the third quarter of 2012 decreased 25% to $170 million from $226 million in the third quarter of 2011.
  • Management's 2011 decision to modify steel bar production line to produce steel wire helped alleviate the negative market impact from a decline in the selling price of steel.
  • The Company was able to maintain its year-on-year tonnage sold, despite an overall general market decline for its steel products.
  • The Company reported a loss of $3.7 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 as compared to net income of $18.4 million for the same period in 2011.
  • Earnings per share for the three months ended September 30, 2012 were a loss of $0.05 as compared to a gain of $0.25 for the same period in 2011.

Liu Shenghong, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Company, commenting on the quarterly results stated, "Our management team was pleased that we remained profitable for the first nine months of this year, despite a general downturn of the Chinese economy. Our shift from the production of steel plate to steel wire proved beneficial, as our steel wire sales continued to increase throughout the year, enabling us to maintain the tonnage sales levels achieved during the same period in 2011. But, as was common to the steel producers worldwide, the decrease in raw material costs was not fully sufficient to offset the effect of the decrease in the selling prices of steel products on our margins, most notably during the third quarter."

Mr. Liu also stated, "The steel industry is subject to economic and industrial trends and the past two years have certainly been challenging, however consensus is that China's economy is improving and we believe that the recently announced stimulus measures to be taken by the new administration will prove beneficial for Chinese business in general and the steel industry in particular. These stimulus programs include infrastructure projects such as airports, millions of affordable housing units, as well as the construction of new subway and train lines, all of which we believe will have a very positive effect on China's demand for steel."

Mr. Liu went on to say, "Over the past months, China Industrial Steel has aggressively optimized our production capabilities. We also have focused on building and enhancing relationships with new and existing customers, and have begun to explore financing strategies to facilitate our five-year expansion plans. These steps will help ensure that China Industrial Steel is well positioned to benefit from China's economic recovery and future economic growth."
