China HGS Reports Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2014 Results

HANZHONG, China, Aug. 8, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- China HGS Real Estate Inc. (NASDAQ: HGSH) ("China HGS" or the "Company"), a leading regional real estate developer headquartered in Hanzhong City, Shaanxi Province, China, today reported its financial results for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 ended June 30, 2014 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. An electronic copy of the quarterly report on Form 10-Q can be accessed on the SEC's website at www.sec.gov.

Highlights for the Quarter

  • Total revenues for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 were approximately $28.9 million, an increase of 302% from approximately $7.2 million in the same quarter of fiscal 2013. Total revenues recognized from percentage of completion method were approximately $24.2 million, which accounted for 84% of total revenues in the third quarter of fiscal 2014.
  • Net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 totaled approximately $8.2 million, an increase of approximately $5.9 million from the net income of approximately $2.3 million in the same period of last year. The increased net income in this quarter compared to the same quarter of last year was primarily due to the significantly increased revenue.    
  • Basic and diluted net earnings per share ("EPS") attributable to shareholders for the third quarter of fiscal 2014 were $0.18, increased by 260% from $0.05 for the same quarter last year.  

"We continued to deliver satisfactory results this quarter as compared to the same period of last year," said Mr. Xiaojun Zhu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of China HGS. "The overall real estate market in China remains soft, however, it is generally stable in the Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities. We are also pleased to experience some increase in our average selling prices ("ASP") compared to the third quarter of last year. We believe that the demand for real estate in Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities and counties in China remained solid as the government policy such as the reform of "Hu-Kou" policy will continue to drive migrants to favor Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities and counties. We remain focused on providing quality housing with affordable pricing for growing new urban residents in these regions," concluded Mr. Xiaojun Zhu.
