HANZHONG, China, Aug. 8, 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 third quarter of fiscal 2014 ended June 30, 2014 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 third quarter of fiscal 2014 were approximately $28.9 million, an increase of 302% from approximately $7.2 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2013. Total revenues recognized from percentage of completion method were approximately $24.2 million, which accounted for 84% of total revenues in the third quarter of fiscal 2014.
  • Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 totaled approximately $8.2 million, an increase of approximately $5.9 million from the net income of approximately $2.3 million in the same period of last year. The increased net income in this quarter compared to the same quarter of last year was primarily due to the significantly increased revenue.    
  • Basic and diluted net earnings per share ("EPS") attributable to shareholders for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 were $0.18, increased by 260% from $0.05 for the same quarter last year.  

"We continued to deliver satisfactory results this quarter as compared to the same period of last year," said Mr. Xiaojun Zhu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of China HGS. "The overall real estate market in China remains soft, however, it is generally stable in the Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities. We are also pleased to experience some increase in our average selling prices ("ASP") compared to the third quarter of last year. We believe that the demand for real estate in Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities and counties in China remained solid as the government policy such as the reform of "Hu-Kou" policy will continue to drive migrants to favor Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities and counties. We remain focused on providing quality housing with affordable pricing for growing new urban residents in these regions," concluded Mr. Xiaojun Zhu.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way.

The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way.
