China United Insurance Service Reports Financial Results For Three- And Six-Months Ended December 31, 2013

-- Company Transitions to Calendar Year Reporting Cycle --

ZHENGZHOU, China and TAIPEI, Taiwan, April 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- China United Insurance Service, Inc. (CUIS) (OTCBB: CUII), a leading insurance intermediary company with operations in the People's Republic of China and Taiwan, today reported financial results for the three and six months ended December 31, 2013.

Results for the Three Months ended December 31, 2013

Revenues for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 increased 24% to $15.9 million, from $12.8 million in the same period last year. Gross profit for the quarter increased to $6.1 million versus $4.9 million for the comparable quarter in 2012. Operating expenses for the quarter were $4.9 million, which included $1.2 million of selling expenses for marketing promotion in Taiwan and $122,000 of impairment of goodwill, compared with $3.4 million in the same quarter a year ago.

Net other expenses for the quarter ended December 31, 2013 was $693,000, primarily due to $303,000 of loss from disposal of fixed assets and $370,000 of estimated tax penalties for late filings of income tax return in the United States. For the same quarter in 2012, the company had net other income of $280,000.

Net income for quarter ended December 31, 2013 was $291,000, compared with $1.6 million in the 2012 comparable quarter. Net loss attributable to CUIS' shareholders for the quarter was $123,000, or $0.01 per share, versus net income of $1.1 million in the same quarter last year.

"We continue to expand our market share in Taiwan and China, accelerating through strategic partnerships with top reputable insurance companies and their product offerings, in particular, the strategic alliance with AIATW in June 2013. At the same time, we focus on providing excellent service through highly trained professionals, which has helped separate us from the competition," said Chung-Mei Lo, Chief Executive Officer. "We are proud to have been recognized by the industry for our excellent insurance products, receiving the 2013 Taiwan Insurance Excellence Award, one of the most prestigious insurance industry awards granted in the country, as well the Most Desirable Insurance Brokerage Company of Finance Insurance Graduates.

"Since 2012, the China Insurance Regulatory Commission has been issuing tighter regulations for insurance agencies.  One of the policies requires all insurance agencies to obtain a nationwide license to operate a business, a license that we have obtained.  We expect a better regulated market in China to further accentuate our competitive advantage," added Lo.

Results for the Six Months ended December 31, 2013

The company reported revenues of $23.7 million; gross profit of $7.6 million; and operating expenses of $8.1 million for the six months ended December 31, 2013. Net loss attributable to CUIS' shareholders was $1.2 million, or $0.04 per share. Comparative results for the prior-year period are not meaningful because of the acquisition of Action Holding Financial Limited (AHFL) on August 24, 2012.

AHFL is the holding company of Taiwan-based Law Insurance Broker Company, a dominant brokerage and insurance agency service business with 24 branches, three training centers and over 2,000 brokers in Taiwan. Results of the operations for the six months ended December 31, 2012 included AHFL's results from the acquisition date, which also included a bargain gain of $5.3 million.

Change in Reporting Cycle

On January 1, 2014 the company began reporting quarterly results on a calendar year basis, changing to a calendar year-end from a fiscal year-end to better align the company's financial reporting cycle with its business activities and budgeting. The results reported today reflect the reporting cycle transitional period from July 1 to December 31, 2013.
