Jinpan International Reports Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

* Second quarter revenue increased 12.0% year-over-year to $65.7 million

CARLSTADT, N.J., Aug. 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Jinpan International Limited (Nasdaq: JST), a leading designer, manufacturer, and distributor of cast resin transformers, today reported unaudited consolidated financial results for the second quarter ending June 30, 2014. 

Second Quarter 2014 Results

Net sales for the second quarter were $65.7 million, a 12.0% increase from $58.7 million in the same period last year.  Sales growth was driven by an increase in sales of VPI transformers to one of our OEM customers and a substantial increase in the sales of switchgears and unit substations to our customers in China.   

In the second quarter, China sales increased 10.2% year-over-year to $55.8 million, or 84.9% of net sales, compared to $50.6 million, or 86.3% of net sales, in the same period last year. Sales outside of China for the quarter increased 23.2% year-over-year to $9.9 million, or 15.1% of net sales, compared to $8.0 million, or 13.7% of net sales for the same period last year. 

Sales to OEM customers increased 5.0% year-over-year to $11.8 million, or 17.9% of net sales, compared to $11.2 million, or 19.1% of net sales in the same period last year.

Gross profit in the second quarter increased 7.9% year over year to $22.0 million from $20.4 million in the same period last year.  Second quarter 2014 gross profit margin was 33.5%, compared to 34.8% in the prior year period. Gross margin for the quarter was within our expectations.  The decrease from the same period last year was due to an increased mix of sales of switchgear and unit substation products which typically carry a lower margin, but offer higher unit pricing and present substantially larger addressable markets to Jinpan. 

Selling and administrative expenses in the second quarter were $15.6 million, or 23.7% of net sales, compared to $15.0 million, or 25.5% of net sales in the same period last year.  Selling and administrative expenses increased slightly from the same period last year due to higher sales volume, increased costs associated with the establishment of the Guilin plant, and increased research and development expenses.

Operating income for the second quarter increased 18.9% to $6.4 million, or 9.8% of net sales, from $5.4 million, or 9.2% of net sales, in the same period last year.

Net income for the second quarter increased 20.6% to $5.3 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, compared to $4.4 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, in the same period last year.  Second quarter net income, as a percentage of net sales, was 8.0% compared to 7.5% in the same period last year.

Mr. Zhiyuan Li, Chief Executive Officer of Jinpan International, stated, "We are pleased with our second quarter results, which reflected a continuation of the positive trends we have seen in previous quarters.  Our team continued the strong execution of our strategic plan and produced encouraging results.  Our expanded production capacity and productivity improvements drove double-digit revenue growth for the fourth consecutive quarter, with quarterly operating margins approaching double-digits. 

"We made excellent progress with our product diversification strategy.  Sales of switchgear and unit substations increased 86% year-over-year and constituted 18% of our total sales.  These products provide Jinpan with access to substantially larger addressable markets relative to our core dry-type transformer market. 

"Sales to our OEM customers continued to increase and diversify.  During the quarter, we supplied dry type transformers to our OEM customers for wide range of applications.  Our strategy remains focused on expanding our business with the six OEM customers with whom we have qualified.

"Within China, we generated double-digit sales growth, despite mixed end markets.  We remain well-positioned within key market segments, benefitting from strong growth in renewable energy and rail transportation and stable demand from the industrial sector, which offset weakness within the residential construction markets.  We believe our product quality, manufacturing capacity, and cost structure enable us to compete in a slower-growth environment and capture market share over time.  At the end of June, our backlog equaled $119 million, up 0.8% from the first quarter of 2014."
