World Precision Machinery 1Q2012 Net Profit Down 12.2 Per cent
Mainboard-listed World Precision Machinery Limited, a manufacturer of precision stamping equipment in China, recorded an 11.7-per cent quarter-on-quarter growth in net profit to RMB40.6 million (about S$8.0 million) for the three months ending 31 March 2012 (1Q2012).
Revenue increased 2 per cent from the previous quarter to RMB242.9 million.
On a year-on-year basis however, net profit was down by 12.2 per cent, while revenue slipped 17.3 per cent in 1Q2012.
The group noted that its sales volume of both conventional and high-performance, high-tonnage stamping machines had been declining for two consecutive quarters in 3Q2011 and 4Q2011, due to the tightening of the Chinese government’s monetary policy in early 2011 to ease inflation, which led to a slowdown in capital expenditures in 2H2011.
However, as the Chinese government cuts its bank reserve requirements twice to 20.5 per cent in February 2012 from 21.5 per cent in December 2011, the capital expenditure for manufacturing activities improved gradually. This has translated into improved sales volume of the group’s conventional and high-performance, high-tonnage stamping machines for 1Q2012 compared with 4Q2011.
The group’s orderbook also improved to RMB220.5 million as of 25 April 2012, compared with RMB200 million two months ago.
Shao Jian Jun, Chief Executive Officer, said: “The macro environment has become increasingly favourable for expenditure on capital goods and machinery, with the central bank injecting more liquidity into the Chinese economy.”
“Aside from macroeconomic improvements, we always endeavor to grow our client base and strengthen the cutting-edge in technology,” he added.
World Precision Machinery Limited closed Friday at S$0.535.
