WUJIANG, CHINA--(Marketwired - Nov 15, 2013) - China Commercial Credit, Inc. (
Third quarter 2013 net income attributable to common stock shareholders, which included a one-time non-cash expense for conversion of preferred stock in conjunction with the company's initial public offering completed in August 2013, was $1,608,769, or $.17 per share, compared to net income attributable to common stock shareholders of $1,914,550, or $.23 per share, in the same period in 2012.
Prior to this non-cash expense, the company's net income for the third quarter of 2013 was $2,361,269, or $.24 per share, a 23 percent increase compared to net income of $1,914,550, or $.23 per share, in the third quarter last year.
Total weighted average shares outstanding were 9,692,533 and 8,285,815 for the third quarter ended September 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively.
The company's increase in 2013 third quarter net revenue compared to the same period last year was primarily the result of an increase in loan interest of $553,182. This increase, in turn, was mainly the result of an increase in loan receivables of approximately $9.0 million, to $90,512,332 in the third quarter of 2013 from $81,465,053 in the same period in 2012.
In addition to the increase in the loan interest, net income for the third quarter was impacted favorably by increases in net commissions and fees from the company's loan guarantee business, and a reversal in the provision for loan losses compared to the third quarter of last year.
For the first nine months of 2013, the company had net revenue of $9,271,899, a one percent improvement compared to the net revenue of $9,216,372 during the first nine months of last year. Nine-month 2013 net income attributable to common stock shareholders, which included the one-time non-cash expense for conversion of preferred stock, was $5,142,460, or $.56 per share, compared to net income attributable to common stock shareholders of $6,570,598, or $.86 per share, in the same period in 2012.
Prior to this non-cash expense, the company's net income for the first nine months of 2013 was $5,894,960, or $.64 per share, a ten percent decrease compared to the net income of $6,570,598, or $.86 per share, achieved in the first nine months of last year. This decrease was primarily the result of an increase in non-interest operating expenses of $333,891, comprising various financial, travel, legal and consulting costs.
Total weighted average shares outstanding were 9,233,381 and 7,611,688 for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 and September 30, 2012, respectively.
"We are very satisfied with our third quarter financial performance," said CEO and founder Mr. Huichun Qin. "Going forward, we expect our available lending capital and income from both loan interest and loan guarantees to show continuing improvements."
Mr. Qin added that, on September 5, 2013, the company established a new entity in China, Pride Financial Leasing (Suzhon) Co. Ltd, which is designed to offer leases on machinery and equipment, transportation vehicles, and medical devices to municipal government agencies, hospitals and SMEs in Jiangsu Province and beyond.
Equipment leasing, noted Mr. Qin, is one of the fastest growing business sectors of the Chinese economy. "China Commercial Credit intends to capitalize on this growing demand by offering an early, full service entrant in Jiangsu and surrounding regions."
Additional details on the capitalization and business plan for Pride Financial Leasing will follow shortly, said Mr. Qin.
