|May 19|magazine40 min read

SHANGHAI, May 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Ossen Innovation Co., Ltd. ("Ossen Innovation" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: OSN), a China-based manufacturer of an array of plain surface, rare earth and zinc coated pre-stressed steel materials, today announced its financial results for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2019.

"Despite 2019 being another challenging year for China's steel industry, as slowing GDP growth and high price volatility continued to plague the steel value chain, we managed to continue improving our operation results by focusing on high margin rare earth coated products," commented Dr. Liang Tang, Chairman of Ossen Innovation. "We are very pleased with the progress and accomplishments our entire team made during the 2019 calendar year."

"We would like to extend our gratitude to medical personnel, health officials and volunteers in China who worked tirelessly to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic," continued Dr. Tang. "Our manufacturing facilities in China remain fully operational since March 9, 2020 and we have maintained high standards for safety and sanitation in our manufacturing facilities. In response to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, China's central and local governments have announced key infrastructure project investment plans for 2020. The total investment is approximately $3.6 trillion and the planned investment in 2020 is approximately $500 billion. As the Company's business is closely connected with the infrastructure investment in China, we believe that these developments should create new opportunities for us in 2020 and beyond."

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2019, revenues increased by $2.8 million, or 2.1%, to $138.9 million from $136.1 million for 2018. The increase in revenues during the year ended December 31, 2019 was mainly attributable to a 3.8% increase in sales of rare earth coated PC wires and PC strands and a 151.8% increase in other products, partially offset by a 41.4% decrease in plain surface products and a 2.9% decrease in zinc coated PC wires and PC strands.

Gross profit increased by $1.9 million, or 9.0%, to $22.4 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 from $20.5 million for the same period of last year. Gross margin increased by 100 basis points to 16.1% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 from 15.1% for the same period of last year. The increase of gross margin was primarily due to the improvement of the profitability of rare earth coated PC wires and PC strands.

Selling expenses increased by $0.1 million, or 9.2%, to $0.4 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 from $0.3 million for the same period of last year. This increase was primarily due to higher transportation cost for domestic sales in 2019, partially offset by lower freight and sales commission for international sales. General and administrative expenses increase by $0.9 million, or 16.9%, to $6.2 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 from $5.3 million for the same period of last year, mainly due to higher research and development cost in 2019. As a result, total operating expenses increased by $0.9 million, or 16.5%, to $6.5 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 from $5.6 million for the same period of last year.

Operating income increased by $0.9 million, or 6.1%, to $15.8 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 from $14.9 million for the same period of last year. This increase was primarily due to higher sales and gross profit. Operating margin was 11.4% for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019, compared to 11.0% for the same period of last year.

Net income increased by $0.8 million, or 7.4%, to $12.2 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 from $11.4 million for the same period of last year.

After deducting net income attributable to non-controlling interest, net income attributable to Ossen Innovation increased by $0.7 million, or 6.7%, to $11.1 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019 from $10.4 million for the same period of last year. Earnings per ordinary share, both basic and diluted, were $0.56 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $0.52 for the same period of last year. Earnings per ADS (one ADS equals to three ordinary shares), both basic and diluted, were $1.68 and $1.56 for 2019 and 2018, respectively.

Impact of COVID-19

From the beginning of 2020 until early March 2020, due to the widespread of the COVID-19 pandemic in China, many cities imposed travel and work restrictions in efforts to curb the spread of COVID-19. As a result, the factories situated in Jiujiang and Maanshan were temporarily closed after the Chinese New Year holiday until the second week of March 2020, and the supply of the raw materials was affected in February 2020. Since then, the factories are fully operational. Due to the travel and work restrictions in order to curb the widespread of COVID-19 in China since the end of January 2020, many cities in China were under lockdown. As a result, production and sales orders were delayed. Restrictions on the movement of people and goods currently remain in place in certain regions from time to time as the COVID-19 pandemic situation fluctuates, which requires the Company to adapt certain of the sales and delivery processes. This may affect the overall financial performance in 2020, although the Company cannot quantify the overall impact for the time being. With the anticipated completion of the construction of new production facility in Jiujiang, Jiangxi Province in 2020, it is expected that the Company's business scale could be further increased, subject to any future developments relating to COVID-19 and its aftermath.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flows

As of December 31, 2019, the Company had cash and restricted cash of $2.6 million, compared to $3.4 million at December 31, 2018. Accounts receivable were $72.5 million as of December 31, 2019, compared to $60.6 million at December 31, 2018. The average days of sales of outstanding (DSO) were 175 days for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019, compared to 150 days for the year 2018. The balance of prepayment to suppliers for raw materials totaled $74.4 million as of December 31, 2019, compared to $70.0 million at December 31, 2018. The Company had inventories of $15.1 million as of December 31, 2019, compared to $17.2 million at the end of 2018. Total working capital was $130.2 million as of December 31, 2019, compared to $113.1 million at December 31, 2018.

Net cash provided by operating activities was $0.4 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $7.6 million of net cash provided by operating activities for the same period of last year. This was mainly due to a decrease in inventories, an increase in customer deposits, and an increase in due to related party, partially offset by an increase in accounts receivable, an increase in advance to suppliers,  a decrease in customer deposits from related parties, and a decrease in due to shareholder. Net cash used in investing activities was $139,795 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $72,305 for the same period of last year. Net cash provided in financing activities was $2.9 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2019, compared to $0.7 million of net cash used in financing activities for the same period of last year. This was the result of an increase in proceeds from short-term bank loans and an increase in proceeds from long-term bank loans, partially offset by an increase in repayments of short-term bank loans and an increase in repayments of long-term bank loans.
