Sino-Global Announces Fiscal 2020 Second Quarter Financial Results

Company Release - 2/19/2020 4:50 PM ET

ROSLYN, New York, Feb. 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd. (NASDAQ: SINO) ("Sino-Global", the "Company", "we", "our", or "us"), a global logistics service provider, announced its financial and operating results for its fiscal 2020 second quarter ended December 31, 2019.

The Company has also provided more detailed information in its quarterly report on Form 10-Q filed today with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. Management encourages investors to review the Company's 10-Q for a detailed discussion of the Company's financial results for the quarter ended December 31, 2019.

Management Comments

Mr. Lei Cao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sino-Global commented, "We continued to maintain a steamlined operating strategy during a time when we were impacted by an uncertain trade climate. We shifted our focus towards higher margin and greater cash generating business while cultivating our business relationships to position Sino-Global for the future. We recently signed a joint-venture agreement to serve as a full logistics services provider for a leading agricultural company where Sino-Global will provide comprehensive supply chain logistic services for agricultural products shiped from the U.S. to China. In addition, we are now focused on pursuing additional ship management contracts as part of our agency services expansion efforts. The Company has a significant advantage of being able to leverage our relationships in both the U.S. and China while cost-effectively expanding the business prospects for our customers in ports throughout China."

Chairman Cao concluded, "While calendar 2019 was a challenging period due to the trade climate, we believe that the Company is well-positioned to grow sales now as phase one of the trade negotiations have been completed. While the fiscal third quarter was seasonally slow due to the Chinese New Year holiday and an impact from the Coronavirus outbreak, we believe it is only temporary and we will continue to operate our business as steadily and safely as we can."

Fiscal Second Quarter 2020 Financial Review

  • The Company reported total revenues of approximately $2.0 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2019, compared to approximately $10.5 million reported in the same period last year. The decrease was largely due to the fact that in certain freight logistics contracts that the Company entered into with customers starting from the first quarter of fiscal year 2020, only acted as an agent and did not control the services rendered to the customers, as Sino-Global was not the primary responsible party to fulfill the services. As such revenues on these contracts are accounted for on a net basis. The decrease was also due to the decrease in revenues from inland transportation management services as service contracts with customers have expired and there was no new business for this segment.
  • The Company's gross profit for the 2020 fiscal second quarter was approximately $1.3 million, compared to approximately $2.0 million in the same period last year. Gross profit margin during the quarter was approximately 62.6%, compared to approximately 18.6% in the same period last year. The increase was largely due to the Company's shifting of business focus towards its agency business for providing freight logistics services where the Company acted solely as an agent and did not control the services rendered to its customers.

The following tables present summary information by segment for the three months ended December 31, 2019 and 2018, respectively:
