JINJIANG, China, April 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Antelope Enterprise Holdings Limited (NASDAQ Capital Market: AEHL) ("Antelope Enterprise" or the "Company"), a leading Chinese manufacturer of ceramic tiles used for exterior siding and for interior flooring and design in residential and commercial buildings, today announced its financial results for the second half and fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.

Second Half 2020 Summary

  • Revenue was RMB 143.2 million (US$ 21.1 million) as compared to RMB 150.2 million (US$ 21.4 million) for the same period of 2019.

  • Net loss was RMB 81.6 million (US$ 12.1 million) as compared to a net profit of RMB 183.7 million (US$ 26.1 million) for the same period of 2019.

  • Loss per share were RMB 24.85 (US$ 3.67) as compared to income per share of RMB 92.01 (US$ 13.08) for the same period of 2019.

Operating Results for Second Half 2020 were Affected by the Following Significant Items:

  • A provision for the reversal of inventory impairment of RMB 2.3 million (US$ 0.3 million) as compared to a reversal of inventory impairment of RMB 56.8 million (US$ 8.1 million) for the same period of 2019.

  • A provision for bad debt of RMB 48.5 million (US$ 7.2 million) as compared to a provision for a reversal of bad debt of RMB 125.2 million (US$ 17.8 million) for the same period of 2019.

Ms. Meishuang Huang, Chief Executive Officer of Antelope Enterprise, commented, "During fiscal year 2020, we experienced challenging market conditions as the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak had a material adverse impact on the demand for our products with customers both having canceled and delayed their purchases awaiting the normalization of business activity. We instituted a 15% price decrease in late 2019 in order to sustain our sales volume as well as to retain customers for future business. Our average selling price subsequently decreased for the second half of 2020 as compared to the same period of 2019, where the price decrease was in effect for only two months, but this mitigated what we believe would have been a greater decline in sales as compared to the modest decrease in sales volume that occurred in the second half of the year as business conditions due to the COVID-19 pandemic began to normalize."

"For fiscal year 2020, we utilized production facilities capable of producing 4.2 million square meters of ceramic tiles per year out of the Company's effective total annual production capacity of 51.6 million square meters of ceramic tiles. Consistent with our practice in past periods, we maintained a reduced utilization of existing plant capacity based on the current market environment to keep our operating costs low. We intend to bring additional capacity online as the business environment improves."

"We remain focused on diversifying our operations to fuel our growth. While we remain committed to our core business, our two subsidiaries, Chengdu Future, which provides computer consulting, and Antelope Chengdu, which develops fintech software, generated RMB 7.2 million or US$ 1.1 million in income in 2020."

"China's real estate market has been resilient in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the long-term, we believe that the building materials sector will grow due to urbanization, innovative property development and the upgrading of neglected housing stock. Further, we plan upon securing customers in the larger Southeast Asia market outside of China to capitalize upon new building construction that is happening in this region's urban areas," concluded Ms. Huang.

Six Months Results Ended December 31, 2020

Revenue for the six months ended December 31, 2020 was RMB 143.2 million (US$ 21.1 million), a 4.6% decrease from RMB 150.2 million (US$ 21.4 million) for the same period of 2019. The decrease in revenue was due to the 9.1% decrease in average selling price to RMB 21.8 (US$ 3.34) for the second half of 2020 from RMB 24.0 (US$ 3.41) for the same period of 2019, which was partially offset by the 4.8% increase in our sales volume to 6.6 million square meters of ceramic tiles for the second half of 2020 compared to 6.3 million square meters of ceramic tiles for the same period of 2019. We instituted a 15% price decrease in late 2019 in order to sustain our sales volume as well as to retain customers for future business. Our average selling price decreased for the second half of 2020 as compared to the same period of 2019 since the 15% price decrease was in effect for only two months in the latter period. Our sales volume grew sequentially from 1.8 million square meters of ceramic tiles in the first half of 2020 to 6.6 million square meters of ceramic tiles in the second half of 2020 as business conditions in China began to normalize.

Gross loss for the six months ended December 31, 2020 was RMB 26.9 million (US$ 4.0 million), as compared to gross profit of RMB 66.0 million (US$ 9.4 million) for the same period of 2019. The gross loss margin was 18.8% as compared to a 44.0% gross profit margin for the same period of 2019. The gross loss margin for the six months ending December 31, 2020 was mainly due to the 9.0% decrease in average selling price and the 102.2% increase in cost of goods sold. The second half of 2020 cost of goods sold includes a reversal of inventory impairment of RMB 2.3 million (US$ 0.3 million); without this reversal of inventory impairment the gross loss for the six months ended December 31, 2020 would have been 20.4%. The second half of 2019 cost of goods sold includes a reversal of inventory impairment of RMB 56.8 million (US$ 8.1 million); without this reversal of inventory impairment the gross profit margin for the six months ended December 31, 2019 would have been 6.2%.

Other income for the six months ended December 31, 2020 was RMB 12.2 million ($1.8 million), an increase of RMB 4.7 million (US$ 0.7 million) from the RMB 7.5 million ($1.1 million) for the comparable period of 2019. Other income primarily consists of rental income that the Company received by leasing out one of its production lines from its Hengdali facility pursuant to an eight-year lease contract and RMB 7.2 million ($1.1 million) from our newly incorporated subsidiaries, Chengdu Future and Antelope Chengdu, who engage in computer consulting and software development, respectively.

Selling and distribution expenses for the six months ended December 31, 2020 were RMB 4.2 million (US$ 0.6 million), a decrease of RMB 1.4 million (US$ 0.2 million) from RMB 5.6 million (US$ 0.8 million) for the comparable period of 2019. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in advertising expenses of RMB 0.9 million and a decrease in payroll expenses of RMB 0.5 million.

Administrative expenses for the six months ended December 31, 2020 were RMB 11.9 million (US$ 1.8 million), an increase of RMB 2.7 million (US$ 0.4 million) from RMB 9.2 million (US$ 1.3 million), for the same period of 2019. The increase in administrative expenses was primarily due to increased start-up expenses for our newly incorporated entities and an increase in consulting expenses.

Bad debt expense for the six months ended December 31, 2020 entailed bad debt of RMB 48.5 million (US$ 7.2 million), as compared to a reversal of bad debt expense of RMB 125.2 million (US$ 17.8 million) for the same period of 2019. We recognize a loss allowance for expected credit loss on our financial assets, primarily on trade receivables, which are subject to impairment under IFRS 9, Financial Instruments, first effective for year 2018. We believe that we have undertaken appropriate measures to resolve our bad debt expense. We will continue to review each of our customers for credit quality as well as assiduously test their accounts receivables balances in each upcoming fiscal period.

Net loss for the six months ended December 31, 2020 was RMB 81.6 million (US$ 12.0 million), as compared to a net profit of RMB 183.7 million (US$ 26.1 million) for the same period of 2019. The net loss was primarily due to the gross loss for the second half of 2020 and the bad debt expense incurred in the second half of 2020.

Loss per basic share and fully diluted share for the six months ended December 31, 2020 was RMB 24.85 (US$ 3.67) per share, as compared to profit per basic and fully diluted share of RMB 92.01 (US$ 13.08) for the same period of 2019.

Full Year 2020 Financial Results

Revenue for the year ended December 31, 2020 was RMB 183.0 million (US$ 26.5 million), as compared to RMB 327.6 million (US$ 47.4 million) for the year ended December 31, 2019. Gross loss was RMB 26.0 million (US$ 3.8 million), as compared to gross profit of RMB 81.3 million (US$ 11.8 million) for the same period of 2019. The gross loss margin was 14.2%, as compared to a 24.8% gross profit margin for the same period of 2019. Other income was RMB 21.9 million (US$ 3.2 million), as compared to RMB 14.6 million (US$ 2.1 million) for the same period of 2019. Selling expenses were RMB 9.4 million (US$ 1.4 million), as compared to RMB 11.3 million (US$ 1.6 million) for the same period of 2019. Administrative expenses were RMB 26.6 million (US$ 3.9 million), as compared to RMB 25.1 million (US$ 3.6 million) for the same period of 2019. Bad debt expense was RMB 150.3 million (US$ 21.8 million), as compared to RMB 68.7 million ($9.9 million) for the same period of 2019. Net loss for the year ended December 31, 2020 was RMB 193.1 million (US$ 28.0 million), as compared to a net loss of RMB 9.5 million (US$ 1.4 million) for the same period of 2019. Loss per share on a basic and fully diluted basis were RMB 65.67 (US$ 9.51) for the year ended December 31, 2020, as compared to basic and fully diluted loss per share of RMB 4.68 (US$ 0.69), for the same period of 2019.

Statements of Selected Financial Position Items for the Fiscal Year Ended 2020

  • Cash and bank balances were RMB 12.3 million (US$ 1.9 million) as of December 31, 2020, compared to RMB 8.2 million (US$ 1.2 million) as of December 31, 2019.

  • Inventory turnover was 190 days as of December 31, 2020, as compared to 217 days as of December 31, 2019. The decrease in inventory turnover days was primarily due to the decrease of inventory on hand resulting from a decrease in raw material purchases for fiscal year 2020 as compared to the fiscal 2019. We recorded a reversal of an inventory impairment provision of RMB 2.3 million (US$ 0.3 million) in fiscal 2020 as compared to a reversal of an inventory impairment provision of RMB 56.8 million (US$ 8.2 million) in fiscal 2019.

  • Trade receivables turnover, net of value added tax, was 242 days as of December 31, 2020, as compared to 194 days as of December 31, 2019. The increase in trade receivables turnover was primarily due to the slow collection of our trade receivables resulting from the overall economic downturn in China attributable to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Trade payables turnover, net of value added tax, was 22 days as of December 31, 2020 as compared to 30 days as of December 31, 2019. The average turnover days was within the normal credit period of one to four months granted by our suppliers.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

Cash flow used in operating activities was RMB 1.6 million (US$ 0.2 million) for the six months ended December 31, 2020, as compared to cash used in operating activities of RMB 3.5 million (US$ 0.5 million) in the same period of 2019. The decrease in cash outflow was mainly due to decreased raw material purchase, which was partly offset by decreased cash inflow on trade receivables.

Cash flow used in investing activities was RMB 46,000 (US$ 7,000) for the six months ended December 31, 2020, as compared to cash flow used in investing activities of RMB 2.8 million (US$ 0.4 million) for the same period of 2019. The decrease of cash outflow was mainly due to the decrease in restricted cash.

Cash flow generated from financing activities was RMB 71,000 (US$ 10,000) for the six months ended December 31, 2020, as compared to cash flow generated from financing activities of RMB 5.1 million (US$ 0.8 million) in the same period of 2019. The decrease in cash inflow of financing activities is due to the repayment to a related party's advance in the six months ended December 31, 2020 as compared to the same period of 2019.

Plant Capacity and Capital Expenditures Update

We utilized plant capacity capable of producing 1.5 million square meters of ceramic tiles for the six months ended December 31, 2020 and 4.2 million square meters of ceramic tiles for fiscal 2020 out of a total annual production capacity of 51.6 million square meters.

Our Hengda facility has an annual production capacity of 22.8 million square meters of ceramic tiles as a result of two old furnaces having been put out of use at the facility. The Company utilized production capacity at our Hengda facility capable of producing 0.8 million square meters of ceramic tiles for the six months ended December 31, 2020.

Our Hengdali facility has an annual production capacity of 28.8 million square meters (which excludes our leasing out 10 million square meters of production capacity to a third party). We utilized production capacity at our Hengdali facility capable of producing 0.7 million square meters of ceramic tiles for the six months ended December 31, 2020.

We intend to bring our unused production capacity online as customer demand dictates and when there are signs of improvement in China's real estate and construction sectors.

We review the level of capital expenditures throughout the year and make adjustments subject to market conditions. Although business conditions are subject to change, we anticipate a modest level of capital expenditures for 2021 other than those associated with minimal upgrades, small repairs and the maintenance of equipment.

Business Outlook

For fiscal year 2020, the Company's operating results were severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the pandemic, there was a nationwide slowdown in production as a result of facilities closures and the disruption in supply chains as well as travel restrictions and related public health orders. This caused China's GDP growth in 2020 to fall to 2.2%, the slowest rate in four decades. The COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a high number of our customers' cancelling or delaying their purchases awaiting the resumption of normal economic activity. However, our sales volume grew sequentially from 1.8 million square meters of ceramic tiles in the first half of 2020 to 6.6 million square meters of ceramic tiles in the second half of 2020 as business conditions in China began to normalize.

Looking forward, China's real estate market has been resilient in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The sector continues to be important to China's economic growth as the sector and its impact on other business activities is estimated to comprise 25% of China's GDP. As the macroeconomic environment began to normalize in China, the central government appears intent upon reducing debt in the highly leveraged property developer sector which could reduce land purchases and real estate development. Also, a new land policy authorized by the central government and enacted by some municipalities which is intended to improve transparency and prevent real estate speculation could result in lower new land sales. In addition, the central government could impose measures to cool speculative behavior as it has in the past. These include lending curbs, constraints on mortgage lending, and restrictions on the number of homes that families can buy. We anticipate that these trends could potentially limit new project development which could make the business conditions for the construction and building materials sectors challenging.

We believe that the real estate and construction sectors will continue to grow in the long-term which is of key importance to the building materials sector, and that urbanization continues to be a key driver for such growth. The upgrading of neglected housing stock, innovative property development and the renovation of existing homes are all factors that could lead to higher demand for building materials.

We plan upon expanding our footprint domestically while also increasing our efforts to secure customers in the larger Southeast Asia market outside of China to capitalize upon new building construction occurring in many of this region's urban areas. We also remain focused on diversifying our operations to fuel our growth as we formed two subsidiaries in the computer consulting and fintech software development sectors. While these new businesses contributed modestly to earnings in 2020, we anticipate further growth from these new ventures in the years ahead.

This business outlook reflects the Company's current and preliminary views and is based on the information currently available to us, which are subject to change, and is subject to risks and uncertainties, as well as risks and uncertainties identified in the Company's public filings.
