发布时间:2019-02-06 编辑:admin



BEIJING, May 28 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Ninetowns Internet Technology Group Company Limited (Nasdaq: NINE) ("Ninetowns" or the "Company"), one of China's leading providers of online solutions for international trade, today reports its financial results for the six-month period and full year ended December 31, 2009.

Second Half 2009 Financial Highlights

-- Total net revenues were RMB51.1 million (US$7.5 million), representing

a 7% decrease, as compared to RMB54.7 million (US$8.0 million) for the

second half of 2008.

-- Net income was RMB 48,287 (US$7,074), as compared to a net loss of

RMB140.9 million (US$20.6 million) for the second half of 2008.

-- Both basic and diluted net income per ADS (each ADS represents one

ordinary share) were nil, compared to a basic and diluted net loss per

ADS of RMB4.02 (US$0.59) for the second half of 2008.

Full Year 2009 Financial Highlights

a 10% decrease, as compared to RMB104.5 million (US$15.3 million) for

2008.

of RMB169.6 million (US$24.9 million) for 2008.

compared to basic and diluted net loss per ADS of RMB4.85 (US$0.71) for

Second Half and Full Year 2009 Business Highlights

Enterprise software:

Ninetowns continued to derive a large portion of its total net revenues from the sales and servicing of iDeclare packages, Ninetowns' flagship import/export enterprise software solution. During the second half of 2009, the Company sold 650 iDeclare software packages and 8,500 iDeclare service contracts. For the full year, the Company sold 1,460 iDeclare software packages and 18,400 iDeclare service contracts. Sales of iDeclare software package and services decreased compared to the same period in 2008 primarily because of the decline in international trade activities, especially exports from China, and the associated decline in the number of customers engaged in international trade during the economic downturn. Among the total installed customer base of 142,300 users, approximately 50,000 users had more than one successful e-filing within the past 12 months and most of the iDeclare service contracts were sold to these active users.

In addition, during the second half of 2009, Ninetowns sold 205 annual maintenance service contracts to users who are currently using the free software offered by the PRC Inspection Administration. For the full year, Ninetowns sold 705 such maintenance service contracts. These contracts average approximately US$270 per contract per year. The maintenance services include installation, remote technical support, automatic upgrades and user training. Ninetowns expects to continue to promote its paid maintenance services to the users of the free software offered by the PRC Inspection Administration.

Business-to-Business ("B2B"):

In March 2009, Ninetowns undertook a thorough review of its overall B2B strategy for international trade and decided to discontinue its tootoo.com business. This decision was made in light of the recent major changes in the global economic environment and will enable Ninetowns to better manage its investments for long-term growth. The discontinuation of the B2B business is not expected to have a material financial impact on Ninetowns' other business solutions.

e-Grocery Business:

Throughout the second half of 2009 and the early part of 2010, Ninetowns made progress on its e-grocery retail initiative. On April 20, 2010, our online retail platform, http://www.tootoo.cn , underwent a complete upgrade, with the addition of a number of new features including an online payment system and a more diverse offering of organic products, fresh vegetables, fruits, household and consumer products. tootoo.cn currently carries over 3,000 products in 16 different categories. Furthermore, Ninetowns established a 4,300 square meter warehousing and office facility, dedicated to serving tootoo.cn's business with multi-temperature warehousing functions for keeping our products fresh for delivery as well as a processing workshop, office and other functional facilities.

In May 2010, tootoo.cn initiated testing of its online order and delivery service in TianTongYuan Community ("TTY"), a residential area with a population in excess of one million people located near the Asian Games Village in Beijing. Within the TTY area, tootoo.cn offers delivery of fresh grocery products backed by our satisfaction guarantee policy.

Mr. Shuang Wang, Chief Executive Officer of Ninetowns, commented: "The global economic downturn impacted many of our customers in the import/export sector in China in 2009, constraining demand for our core iDeclare software and services. However, we will continue to focus our efforts on client retention and new client acquisition by leveraging our versatile pricing structure, continued product updates and enhancements, and our nationwide service and support.

"In addition to our core business, we are pleased with the progress we have made to date on our e-grocery initiative. With the establishment of our cold-chain delivery system and adoption of the Limited Communities model, we are able to provide organic food with our guarantee of fresh delivery from farm to table. We believe that the market for online shopping in China is already large and will continue to grow rapidly. Although we believe that the e-grocery market represents a small and nascent segment of the broader

e-commerce industry, we are very optimistic about the future prospects of this market in China and are confident that our unique positioning, qualified offerings and satisfaction guaranteed services will enable us to create

long-term shareholder value."

Mr. Tommy Fork, Chief Financial Officer of Ninetowns, commented, "In the second half of 2009, we continued to focus on stringent cost controls in our overall businesses operations while also making steady progress on our new

e-grocery initiative. As a result, our total operating expenses declined by over 55% year-on-year in 2009. We also continued to maintain a debt-free balance sheet with close to RMB498.4 (US$73.0 million) in cash and cash equivalents. We believe that our financial resources will enable us to continue executing our growth plans."

Second Half 2009 Financial Results

Total Net Revenues. Total net revenues decreased by 7% to RMB51.1 million (US$7.5 million) for the second half of 2009, from RMB54.7 million (US$8.0 million) for the second half of 2008.

Net revenues from sales of enterprise software for the second half of 2009 was RMB27.1 million (US$4.0 million), representing 53% of total net revenues, as compared to 83% for the second half of 2008. Net revenues from software development services was RMB10.9 million (US$1.6 million) for the second half of 2009, representing 21% of total net revenues, as compared to 17% for the second half of 2008. Net revenues from the e-grocery business was RMB13.1 million (US$1.9 million) for the second half of 2009, representing 26% of total net revenues, as compared to nil for the second half of 2008. Of the RMB13.1 million, approximately RMB9.8 million (US$1.4 million) was from

meal-box preparation and delivery services for institutional clients in Shanghai.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin. Gross profit was RMB31.1 million (US$4.6 million) for the second half of 2009, representing a decrease of 39% as compared to RMB51.2 million (US$7.5 million) for the second half of 2008.

Gross margin for the second half of 2009 was 61%, compared to 94% in the second half of 2008. The gross margin decrease was primarily due to increased contribution from the e-grocery business, which resulted in relatively lower margins as it is still in a developmental stage.

Operating Expenses. For the second half of 2009, total operating expenses were RMB72.0 million (US$10.5 million), representing an increase of 8% from RMB66.7 million (US$9.8 million) in the second half of 2008.

Research and product development ("R&D") expenses were RMB7.4 million (US$1.1 million) for the second half of 2009, representing a decrease of 10% from RMB8.2 million (US$1.2 million) for the same period of 2008. This decrease was mainly attributable to a reduction in R&D headcount and related office expenses.

Sales and marketing ("S&M") expenses were RMB8.6 million (US$1.3 million) for the second half of 2009, representing an increase of 4% from RMB8.3 million (US$1.2 million) for the second half of 2008. This increase was primarily due to marketing activities associated with the e-grocery business in the second half of 2009.

General and administrative ("G&A") expenses were RMB34.5 million (US$5.1 million) for the second half of 2009, representing a decrease of 27% from RMB47.5 million (US$7.0 million) for the same period of 2008. This decrease was primarily due to a reduction in legal and professional fees and the implementation of our "cost reduction" program in the second half of 2009.

Charges related to our allowance for doubtful accounts were RMB21.5 million (US$3.1 million) for the second half of 2009, representing a significant increase from RMB2.7 million (US$0.4 million) for the same period of 2008. This increase was due to the increased collection risk arising from the significant increase in the aging of our accounts receivable balances as a result of the longer repayment period by our customers.

Operating Loss. As a result, operating loss for the second half of 2009 was RMB40.8 million (US$6.0 million), compared to an operating loss of RMB15.5 million (US$2.3 million) for the second half of 2008.

Income from continuing operations before income tax. For the second half of 2009, income from continuing operations before income tax was RMB4.1 million (US$0.6 million), compared to a net los of RMB6.7 million (US$1.0 million) for the same period in 2008.

Net Income. For the second half of 2009, net income was RMB48,287 (US$7,074), as compared to a net loss of RMB140.9 million (US$20.6 million) for the second half of 2008. Both basic and diluted net income per ADS for the second half of 2009 were nil, compared to basic and diluted net loss per ADS of RMB4.02 (US$0.59) for the same period in 2008.

Gross margin for the full year 2009 was 69%, as compared to 88% for the full year 2008. The year-on-year gross margin decrease was primarily due to increased contribution from the e-grocery business, which resulted in relatively lower margins as it is still in a developmental stage.

Operating Expenses. For fiscal year 2009, total operating expenses decreased by 6% to RMB123.9 million (US$18.2 million) from RMB132.0 million (US$19.4 million) in fiscal year 2008.

For fiscal year 2009, R&D expenses decreased by 6% to RMB17.4 million (US$2.5 million) from RMB18.6 million (US$2.7 million) in fiscal year 2008. This decrease was mainly attributable to the reduction in R&D headcount and related office expenses.

S&M expenses decreased by 21% to RMB17.4 million (US$2.5 million) in fiscal year 2009 from RMB21.9 million (US$3.2 million) in fiscal year 2008.
