Sino-Global Announces Fiscal 2020 Third Quarter Financial Results

Company Release - 7/6/2020 4:05 PM ET

ROSLYN, N.Y., July 6, 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 third quarter ended March 31, 2020. 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 Comments

Mr. Lei Cao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Sino-Global commented, "Over the past several weeks, we have greatly expanded our ability to service the demand for exported products to China from the U.S., and have done so in a cost-effective manner with a focus on streamlined operations and free cash flow. We strengthened our management team through the appointment of Kelin Wu, secured shipping agency agreements, and chartered two vessels to meet this demand. Finally, we signed a significant MOU with a long-time partner of Sino-Global, which helps to secure potential purchases of material. We believe all of this will greatly increase the Company's revenue with high-margins, and do so with long term customers in which we have successfully worked and collected cash from in the past. The quarter ended March 31, 2020 was largely impacted by the impact on trade from delays in a U.S. / China trade agreement and COVID-19. While this confluence of factors led to a slight delay in our reporting timing, we are pleased to again become current with our filings. Going forward, we feel very well positioned to increase sales and begin to deliver profitability for our shareholders."

Recent Highlights

Fiscal Third Quarter 2020 Financial Review

  • The Company reported total revenues of $1,353,979 for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, compared to $22,773,139 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 third quarter was $464,872, compared to $1,697,944 in the same period last year. Gross profit margin during the quarter was approximately 34.3%, compared to approximately 7.5% 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 March 31, 2020 and March 31, 2019, respectively:
