Unless otherwise indicated, all data are reported in U.S. Dollars at the exchange rate prevailing on the date of the event or result reported.First Six Months 2020 Financial Results (Ended June 30, 2020), and 2019 comparative results    First 6 Months 2020First 6 Months 2019CHANGE Revenues$127.6 million$160.6 million(20.5)% Operating Profit/(Loss)$0.3 million$(3.5) million(1.09)% Net Income/(Loss)$(0.8) million$(1.7) million52.5% EPS(1)$(0.06)$(0.12)50.0%   (1)The calculation of the earnings per share is based on 13,819,669 and 13,819,669 basic and diluted weighted average common shares issued and outstanding for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019, respectively. First Six Months 2020 Results  Revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2020, were $127.6 million, a decrease of 20.5% from $160.6 million for the six months ended June 30, 2019.  The decrease was primarily attributable to revenue decreases in the Company’s Thailand, North Asia, and Rest of World (“ROW”) regions. Net revenue in the Company’s Thailand region decreased by 23.6%, primarily due to decreased sales of low margin products due to COVID-19. Revenues in the Company's North Asia region decreased by 23.1%, primarily due to the cessation of manufacturing operations of Shanghai Asia Pacific Electric Co., Ltd. (“Yayang”) , and due to depreciation of the local currency. Revenues in the Company's Rest of World ("ROW") region decreased by 12.1%, primarily due to Singapore’s lockdown for reasons associated with COVID-19. The Company's North Asia region includes China and Hong Kong; the Thailand region consists of operations and sales within Thailand; the ROW region includes Singapore, Australia and the other markets where APWC has operations or sales outside of the Thailand region and North Asia region.Operating profit for the six months ended June 30, 2020 increased to $0.3 million from a loss of $(3.5) million for the six months ended June 30, 2019.  Operating profit margin increased from a loss of (2.2)% in 2019 to a profit of 0.2% in 2020.  In the Thailand region, operating profit margin increased from a loss of (2.1)% to a profit of 3.7%, which was attributable primarily to the increase in sales of higher profit margin products. In the North Asia region, operating profit margin increased from 2.0% in 2019 to 3.0% for the same period in 2020, primarily attributable to the decrease in corresponding operating expenses resulting from the cessation of Yayang. The ROW region’s operating loss margin increased from (3.6) % in 2019 to (4.1)% in 2020, primarily attributable to higher average cost resulting from decreased sales volume in Singapore for reasons associated with COVID-19.Selling, general and administrative expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2020 were $11.8 million, compared to $13.1 million reported for the six months ended June 30, 2019.  Net loss attributable to APWC shareholders was $(0.8) million for the first six months of 2020, compared to a net loss of $(1.7) million for the same period in 2019.  The decrease in net loss was primarily due to an increase in operating profit. The weighted average number of shares issued and outstanding was 13.82 million for the six months ended June 30, 2020 and 2019.Financial ConditionAPWC reported $52.9 million in cash and cash equivalents as of June 30, 2020, compared to cash and cash equivalents of $53.7 million as of December 31, 2019.Current assets totaled $239.2 million as of June 30, 2020, compared to $239.5 million as of December 31, 2019.  Working capital was $174.7 million as of June 30, 2020.  Short term bank loans were $14.9 million at June 30, 2020, an increase from $11.4 million at the end of 2019.  The Company had $3.3 million in long-term debt outstanding at June 30, 2020, compared to $0.0 in long-term debt as of December 31, 2019.

The increase in cash generated from operations in 2020 was primarily attributable to the increased accounts receivable collection. The Company reported $15.7 million in cash outflows from investing activities during the six months ended June 30, 2020, compared to $2.3 million in cash outflows in the same period of 2019. The increase in cash used for investing activities in the first six months of 2020 was attributable primarily to the increase in purchases of property, plant and equipment in the Thailand region and the purchase of investment properties in the ROW region.  APWC reported $5.6 million in cash inflows from financing activities during the first six months of 2020, compared to $7.1 million in cash outflows from financing activities in the same period of 2019.
