HONG KONG, Dec. 1, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Euro Tech Holdings Company Limited (Nasdaq: CLWT) today reported its unaudited financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2021.

The Company's business has turned around from operating loss of US$726,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2020 ("1H 2020") to operating income of US$507,000 for the six months ended June 30, 2021 ("1H 2021").

The Company's revenues for 1H 2021 were US$10,054,000, a 75.8% increase as compared to US$5,718,000 for 1H 2020. The increase was primarily due to the completion of prior years' projects as the Covid-19 situation became stable in China. Revenues from trading and manufacturing activities, and engineering activities increased by US$364,000 and US$3,972,000, respectively.

Gross profits increased by 86.6% to US$3,022,000 for 1H 2021 as compared to US$1,619,000 for 1H 2020. The increase was primarily due to the increase in revenues and the gross profit margin of approximately 1.7%.

Selling and administrative expenses increased by US$173,000 to US$2,514,000 for 1H 2021 as compared to US$2,341,000 for 1H 2020. The increase was principally due to the increase in selling expenses resulting from the increase in revenues and the effect of general inflation.

The Company's net income for the 1H 2021 decreased by approximately US$379,000 to US$490,000 as compared to US$869,000 for 1H 2020. This was due to a non-recurrent net gain on disposal of a property of US$1,429,000 for 1H 2020. The net profit for 1H 2021 was increased by approximately US$1,050,000 if this non-recurrent gain was excluded in 1H 2020.

The Company is positive about the future Ballast Water Treatment Systems ("BWTS") business from port services and commercial ships. In order to expand its market coverage, the Company has been undergoing the procedures to apply for type approval certificates for its BWTS from a number of European and Asian Classification Societies. During the year, the Company has appointed new distributors in Dubai and South Africa to develop the markets in the Middle East, African and Indian Ocean Island Countries.

About BWTS

BWTS are an imminent requirement by The International Maritime Organization ("IMO") to prevent the biological unbalance caused by the estimated 12 billion tons of ballast water transported across the seas by ocean-going vessels when their ballast water tanks are emptied or refilled. In 2012, ballast water discharge standard became a law in the US. Any vessel constructed in December 2013 or later will need to comply when entering US waters, and existing vessels will follow shortly after. IMO's Ballast Water Management Convention entered into force for new-built vessels on September 8, 2017 after ratification by 52 States, representing 35.1441% of world merchant shipping tonnage. In July 2017, IMO decided that the phase-in period for ballast water system retrofits started on 8 September 2019.

The company obtained type approval certificate from China's Classification Society for its 200, 300, 500, 750, 1200 and 1250 Cubic Meters per hour BWTS in 2016.

The IMO convention stipulates that type approval for revised G8 requirements must be obtained for all BWTS installed on or after October 28, 2020, and the company have been in compliance with such requirements.

The ballast water port solution system is a system installed in port to offer ballast water treatment services for ocean going ships without their own BWTS and for those with damaged BWTS.
