Trunkbow Announces Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results

BEIJING, Nov. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Trunkbow International Holdings Limited (NASDAQ: TBOW) ("Trunkbow" or the "Company"), a leading provider of Mobile Payment Solutions ("MPS") and Mobile Value Added Services ("MVAS") in the PRC, today announced financial results for its third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

Third Quarter and Recent Financial and Business Highlights

  • Gross revenue was $9.0 million, compared with $5.8 million in the third quarter of 2011.
    • MPS gross revenue for the quarter was $0.6 million, compared with $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2011.
    • MVAS gross revenue increased to $8.5 million, compared with $3.7 million a year ago.         
  • Gross profit for the quarter was $7.0 million, compared with $4.3 million in the third quarter of 2011; quarterly gross margin improved to 78.6%, compared with 77.2% in the third quarter of 2011.
  • Net income totaled $3.2 million, or $0.09 per diluted share, compared with $0.8 million, or $0.02 per diluted share in the third quarter of 2011.
  • As of September 30, 2012, cash and cash equivalents totaled $0.3 million.
  • Collected approximately $4.1 million of outstanding accounts receivable as of November 12, 2012.
  • Reaffirmed full-year 2012 net income guidance of approximately $17 million.
  • Announced that the Company's board of directors has received a preliminary non-binding "going-private" transaction proposal letter, dated November 2, 2012.
  • Signed an agreement to develop and implement a new electronic payment system for China Minsheng Banking Corp., Ltd. ("CMBC"), China's first national joint-stock commercial bank, serving non state-owned enterprises, small businesses and high-end consumers. New system will be designed to simplify mobile and Internet payments for 10 million CMBC credit cardholders.

"Our results for the third quarter of 2012 were driven largely by the strong performance in our MVAS business, partially offset by weakness in the MPS segment due to a reduction in system integration, software and maintenance sales. We continue to execute on our MPS strategy, transitioning from one-time platform centric sales to a recurring model based on revenue sharing and transaction processing," said Mr. Qiang Li, Chief Executive Officer of Trunkbow. "We had over 5,000 MPS merchant partners at the end of September, and are working to further grow this number to expand our recurring revenue streams.

"In addition to merchant and subscriber acquisition in our MPS segment, we are also implementing our data center projects in Shanghai and Guangzhou. We have invested approximately US$12.2 million in these projects to-date. We are making substantial investments to advance our existing business and develop new services to strengthen the foundation for sustainable long-term growth and improved earnings performance."   

Third Quarter 2012 Results

Gross revenue in the third quarter of 2012 was $9.0 million, an increase of 57.0% year-over-year, compared with gross revenue of $5.8 million in the same period a year ago. The increase in gross revenue was primarily attributable to the significant increase of the software sales. Revenue from MVAS increased $4.8 million, or 131.3%, to $8.5 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared with $3.66 million in the same period of 2011. The increase in MVAS revenue was primarily attributed to growth in MVAS software sales. Revenue from the Company's MPS offerings decreased 72.2% to $0.6 million for the third quarter of 2012, compared with $2.1 million in the same period of 2011. The decrease in MPS revenue was attributable to a reduction of MPS system integration and software sales.

Cost of revenue in the third quarter of 2012 was $1.9 million, compared with $1.3 million in the same period of 2011. The increase in cost of revenue was in line with the increase in revenue.

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2012 totaled $7.0 million, compared with $4.3 million in the third quarter of 2011. As a percentage of net revenue, gross margin was 78.6% in the third quarter of 2012, compared with 77.2% in the year-ago period. The year-over-year improvement in gross margin was attributable to the decrease of revenues from system integration, which involves significantly higher hardware costs.

Operating expenses in the third quarter of 2012 were $3.3 million, an increase of 2.1% year-over-year. The increase in operating expenses was primarily related to a bad debt provision of $0.5 million provided to accounts receivable over one year old, partially offset by lower advertisement and promotion expenses and a decrease in general and administrative expenses.  

Operating income in the third quarter of 2012 was $3.7 million, compared with $1.1 million reported in the same period last year. The increase in operating profit for the quarter was in line with the increase in revenue.

Net income attributable to Trunkbow was $3.2 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared with $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2011. Earnings per basic and diluted share in the third quarter of 2012 were $0.09 each, based on basic and diluted shares outstanding of 36.81 million. This compares with $0.02 per basic and diluted share, respectively, based on basic and diluted shares outstanding of 36.6 million and 37.7 million, respectively, in the year-ago period.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of September 30, 2012, the Company had $0.3 million in cash and cash equivalents, compared with $6.1 million as of December 31, 2011. As of September 30, 2012, the Company had working capital of $46.3 million and total shareholders' equity of $90.2 million. Accounts receivable on September 30, 2012 totaled approximately $45.2 million. As of November 12, 2012, the Company had collected approximately $4.1 million of these outstanding receivables.

Business Outlook 

Trunkbow reaffirmed its 2012 financial guidance, which calls for approximately $17 million in net income.

Mr. Li concluded, "We are pleased with the ongoing shift from platform installations to recurring revenue from shared services and transaction processing. We continue to pursue the development of our hosted services offering, which we believe can become a long-term growth driver for our businesses. We are confident that we can continue the transformation of our businesses and achieve our strategic objectives."
