American Lorain Announces Preliminary Results for the Third

发布时间:2018-12-05 编辑:admin

JUNAN COUNTY, China, Nov. 5 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Lorain Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: ALRC) ("American Lorain" or the "Company"), an international processed foods company based in Shandong, People's Republic of China (PRC), today announced preliminary financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2008.

American Lorain expects revenues for the third quarter of 2008 in the range of $35 million to $37 million, an increase of approximately 53.5% to 62.3% from $22.8 million in revenues for the comparable period last year. The Company's management attributes the strong sales to broad-based expansion in domestic markets as well as robust export growth; exports to Japan and Korea were primarily chestnuts, while exports to European countries were comprised of canned, frozen and bulk foods.

The Company expects gross margin for the third quarter of 2008 to be approximately 21%, up roughly 0.4 percentage points from 20.6% in the comparable period in 2007, driven by increased exports that allow for a higher margin compared to domestic sales. Gross margin iAAAApected to be down 3.1 percentage points from 24.1% in the previous quarter due to increased raw material costs for convenience food, which had a larger contribution to net sales during the third quarter of 2008. The Company expects margin to recover as the share of chestnut sales increases at year end and as certain raw material cost decline due to easing inflationary pressures.

Net income iAAAApected to range between $4.0 million and $4.5 million, an increase of approximately 66.7% to 87.5%, compared to net income of $2.4 million generated in the same period last year. These results are preliminary and subject to finalization and possible revision based upon completion of quarterly accounting procedures and the review by the Company's auditor.

"We remain optimistic in achieving our long-term goal of becoming a leading food processor in China. Thanks to our strict quality control and sanitary production processes, our overseas sales demonstrated robust growth during the third quarter when contamination concerns shook China's food industry. We believe our clients have confidence in the quality of our products, which provides us with a competitive advantage," said Mr. Si Chen, CEO of American Lorain. "We expect to continue with our plan to expand our sales in China. While domestic sales have a slightly lower margin than exports, we believe that our ability to tap the enormous growth potential in the processed foods industry in China and the shift there towards higher quality food products will translate into increased profitability for our business. Additionally, we believe our established image in overseas markets will facilitate our penetration of new markets in China."
