The company announced that for fiscal 2017, it brought in revenue of roughly $17.35 million, which marks a 22.8% decrease approximately compared to its revenue of $22.48 million from the year-ago quarter. Euro Tech Holdings Company brought in a net profit of approximately $473,000 for the quarter.

The figure marks an increase of approximately 105% as compared to its year-ago net profit of $231,000, which helped to offset the company’s drop in revenues. This improvement can be primarily linked to the decrease in operating loss as a result of the increase in gross margin percentage, as well as the decrease in selling and administrative expenses, the decrease in income taxes expenses and contributions from affiliates, specifically Zhejiang Tianlan Environmental Protection Technology Co. Ltd.(“Blue Sky”), and Zhejiang Jia Huan Electronic Co. Ltd. (“Jia Huan“).
