  • Revenue decreased by 9.7% to $59.14 million primarily due to the mandated nation-wide lockdown caused by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. While the Company managed to achieve quick recovery and sustained similar domestic sales revenue compared with fiscal year 2019, our international sales revenue was negatively impacted by the lockdown during the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020. Our international sales revenue decreased by approximately $7.41 million, or 41.4%, during 2020 fiscal year compared to 2019 fiscal year.

  • Gross profit decreased by 27.1% to $10.66 million. Gross margin was 18%, compared to 22.3% for the prior fiscal year. The decrease of gross profit was primarily due to decreased weighted average selling prices we offered to customers as a temporary sales strategy during the pandemic by providing one-off discount on certain customized products to some customers as a result of other customers who ordered those customized products not being able to fulfill their orders as they suffered from the negative impact of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020.

  • Operating income was $4.46 million, compared to income from operations of $8.38 million for the prior fiscal year. Operating margin was 7.5%, compared to operating profit margin of 12.8% for the prior fiscal year.

  • Net income attributable to Huadi International was $3.32 million, or net earnings of $0.34 per share. This compared to net income attributable to Huadi International of $5.39 million, or $0.54 per share, for the prior fiscal year.

  • Net book value per share was $2.58 as of September 30, 2020, compared to $2.12 as of September 30, 2019.

"While the COVID-19 pandemic caused historic setbacks on the global economy and unprecedented difficulties along the stainless steel pipe value chain, we managed to sustain our revenue to $59.14 million for the year ended September 30, 2020, a testament to our strong product quality and customer recognition among our end customers. However, margins and profitability were still impacted by the pandemic and declined in the fiscal year 2020. We are encouraged and looking forward to the year ahead, as we develop new products and expand our market penetration in both domestic and international markets. We are confident that the Company will be able to drive strong growth in sales, profitability and margins in the years ahead," commented Mr. Di Wang, Chairman of Huadi International Group Co., Ltd.

Financial Results for the Fiscal Year 2020

Revenue

For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2020, revenue decreased by 9.7% to $59.14 million. The decline was primarily due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic during the reporting period. The Company still managed to sustain significant level of sales when the stainless steel pipe value chain was largely paralyzed by the pandemic because it applied strategies to gain additional revenue from providing production services, which contributed $1.37 million sales to the total revenue of the reporting fiscal year. The following table summarizes revenue by geographic areas for the years ended September 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively:

India and Australian markets reported significant sales growths year-on-year of 33.9% and 183% respectively to $5.08 million and $1.33 million during the reporting period.

As a result, gross margin decreased to 18% for the fiscal year 2020 from 22.3% for the prior fiscal year.

As a percentage of total revenue, selling, general and administrative expenses was 6.67% for the fiscal year 2020 and 6.82% for the prior fiscal year.
