China HGS Reports First Quarter of Fiscal Year 2014 Results -- Revenues Up by Approximately 29%

HANZHONG, China, Feb. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- China HGS Real Estate Inc. (NASDAQ: HGSH) ("China HGS" or the "Company"), a leading regional real estate developer headquartered in Hanzhong City, Shaanxi Province, China, today reported its financial results for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 ended December 31, 2013 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. An electronic copy of the quarterly report on Form 10-Q can be accessed on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.

Highlights for the Quarter

  • Total revenues for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 were approximately $14.1 million, an increase of 28.5% from approximately $11.0 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2013. Total revenues recognized from percentage of completion method were approximately $12.9 million, which accounted for 91.6% of total revenues in the first quarter of fiscal 2014.
  • Net income for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 totaled approximately $3.1 million, a decrease of approximately $2.4 million from the net income of approximately $5.5 million in the same period of last year. The decreased profit margin in this quarter compared to the same quarter of last year was primarily due to the mix of sold properties. More residential properties, which have lower average selling price per unit, were sold in this quarter, while more commercial properties, which have higher average selling price per unit, were sold in the same quarter of last year.   
  • Basic and diluted net earnings per share ("EPS") attributable to shareholders for the first quarter of fiscal 2014 were $0.07, compared to $0.12 for the same quarter last year.  

"I am pleased with the recent sales progress under presale stage," said Mr. Xiaojun Zhu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of China HGS. "We believe that the demand for real estate in Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities and counties in China remained solid as a result of continuous urbanization and growing personal income. The government recently also announced intention to promote migration to Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities, while restrict migration to Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities. We expect that new policies forthcoming for further urbanization in China will focus more on development of Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities, which will attract more first-time home buyers to these less crowded cities from non-city population. As a leading regional developer, the Company will continue to focus its development on selected Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities, maximize the benefits of new government policies, and provide quality housing with affordable pricing for growing new urban residents in these cities," concluded Mr. Xiaojun Zhu.
