发布时间:2018-11-30 16:57 作者:918 来源:admin 点击: 字号:



HONG KONG, Sept. 19 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Brilliance China Automotive Holdings Limited (the "Company") (OTC: BCAHY; SEHK: 1114) announced today the unaudited interim results for the six months ended June 30, 2008 prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States of America.

Unaudited consolidated net sales of the Company and its subsidiaries (the "Group"), including Shenyang Brilliance JinBei Automobile Co., Ltd. ("Shenyang Automotive"), Shenyang XingYuanDong Automobile Component Co., Ltd. ("Xing Yuan Dong"), Ningbo Yuming Machinery Industrial Co., Ltd. ("Ningbo Yuming"), Ningbo Brilliance Ruixing Auto Components Co., Ltd. ("Ruixing"), Mianyang Brilliance Ruian Automotive Components Co., Ltd. ("Ruian"), Shenyang Brilliance Dongxing Automotive Component Co., Ltd. ("Dongxing"), Shenyang ChenFa Automobile Component Co., Ltd. ("ChenFa"), Shenyang Jindong Development Co., Ltd. ("Jindong"), Shanghai Hidea Auto Design Co., Ltd. ("Hidea Auto") and Shenyang Brilliance Power Train Machinery Co., Ltd. ("Power Train") for the first six months of 2008 were RMB5,210.1 大发million (US$736.9 million), representing a 32.7% decrease from RMB7,743.0 million (US$1,001.7 million) for the same period in 2007. The decrease in turnover was primarily due to a decrease in unit sales of Shenyang Automotive's Zhonghua sedans during the period in 2008.

Shenyang Automotive sold 33,520 minibuses in the first half of 2008, representing a 4.3% decrease from 35,038 units sold during the same period in 2007. Of these vehicles sold, 26,828 were mid-priced minibuses, representing a 9.1% decrease from 29,526 units sold during the same period in 2007. Unit sales of deluxe minibuses increased by 21.4% from 5,512 units in the first half of 2007 to 6,692 units for the corresponding period in 2008. Shenyang Automotive sold 33,221 Zhonghua sedans in the first half of 2008, representing a 44.9% decrease from 60,287 units sold during the corresponding period last year. The Zhonghua Zunchi and Junjie models recorded sales of 7,063 and 24,689 units, respectively, in the first six months of 2008, compared to 19,085 and 41,199 units sold, respectively, during the same period in 2007. The Kubao and Junjie FRV models, which were launched in September 2007 and June 2008, respectively, registered volume sales of 1,063 and 406 units in the first half of 2008, respectively.

Unaudited cost of sales decreased 31.4% from RMB7,193.6 million (US$930.6 million) in the first half of 2007 to RMB4,937.5 million (US$698.4 million) for the same period in 2008. The decrease was primarily due to the decrease in unit sales of Zhonghua sedans.

The overall unaudited gross profit margin of the Group decreased from 7.1% in the first half of 2007 to 5.2% for the same period in 2008. The Zhonghua sales volume fell below its breakeven level in the first half of 2008, resulting in a loss for that segment and a lower gross margin overall.

Unaudited selling expenses decreased by 24.3% from RMB299.4 million (US$38.7 million) in the first half of 2007 to RMB226.7 million (US$32.1 million) for the same period in 2008. The decrease was mainly due to the decrease in warranty fee and transportation costs for finished products resulting from the decrease in sales volume of Zhonghua sedans during the period under review. Selling expenses as a percentage of turnover increased from 3.9% in the first half of 2007 to 4.4% for the same period in 2008 as a result of reduced turnover in the first half of 2008.

Unaudited general and administrative expenses decreased by 11.4% from RMB415.9 million (US$53.8 million) in the first six months of 2007 to RMB368.5 million (US$52.1 million) for the same period in 2008, mainly due to a decrease in research and development expenses charged, and a decrease in depreciation expenses as a result of a change in accounting estimates.

The Company re-evaluated as at 1st January, 2008 the periods over which its buildings, machinery and equipment, specific tools and moulds are available to use and extended the estimated useful lives of these assets based on historical usage experience and industry practices. The effect of the change in these accounting estimates is a decrease in depreciation of RMB81.8 million (US$11.6 million) for the six months ended June 30, 2008. The estimated useful lives of these assets before and after the re-evaluation are as follows:

Estimated useful lives

Property, plant and

equipment: Before change After change

Buildings 20 years 20 - 30 years

Machinery and equipment 10 years 10 - 20 years

Specific tools and moulds 80,000 - 200,000 times 150,000 - 400,000 times

Unaudited interest expense net of interest income increased by 13.0% from RMB66.2 million (US$8.6 million) in the first half of 2007 to RMB74.8 million (US$10.6 million) for the same period in 2008, resulting mainly from increases in bank borrowings and the interest rates charged on these borrowings.

Unaudited net equity in earnings of associated companies and jointly controlled entities increased by 42.9% from RMB90.4 million (US$11.7 million) in the first half of 2007 to RMB129.2 million (US$18.3 million) for the same period in 2008. This increase was mainly attributable to the increased profits contributed by BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd. ("BMW Brilliance"), the Group's 49.5% indirectly owned jointly controlled entity, in the first half of 2008.

Unaudited net profits contributed to the Group by BMW Brilliance increased by 106.8% from RMB53.0 million (US$6.9 million) in the first half of 2007 to RMB109.6 million (US$15.5 million) for the same period this year. The BMW joint venture achieved sales of 16,543 BMW sedans in the first six months of 2008, an increase of 1.7% as compared to 16,260 BMW sedans for the same period in 2007. The higher net profits contributed to the Group in the first half of 2008 was mainly a result of reduced tariffs on imported components, and reduced expenses incurred for component localization.

Unaudited subsidy income decreased from RMB56.5 million (US$7.3 million) in the first half of 2007 to RMB34.6 million (US$4.9 million) for the same period in 2008. The decrease was mainly due to the lower amount of government subsidies being recognized this year.

Unaudited net other income increased by 8.9% from RMB86.0 million (US$11.1 million) in the first half of 2007 to RMB93.6 million (US$13.2 million) for the same period in 2008. The increase was primarily attributable to increase of net exchange gains during the period.

The Group recorded an unaudited loss before taxation and minority interests of RMB140.0 million (US$19.8 million) in the first half of 2008 as compared to an income of RMB0.7 million (US$0.1 million) for the same period in 2007. Unaudited taxation increased by 39.8% from RMB17.6 million (US$2.3 million) in the first half of 2007 to RMB24.6 million (US$3.5 million) for the same period in 2008, resulting mainly from increases in taxation rates of our major operating subsidiaries.

Unaudited other comprehensive income increased by 23.0% from RMB30.5 million (US$3.9 million) in the first half of 2007 (representing fair value adjustment to securities available-for-sale) to RMB37.5 million (US$5.3 million) for the same period in 2008 (mainly representing the share of fair value adjustments for hedging derivatives of BMW Brilliance).

As a result, the Group recorded an unaudited comprehensive income of RMB22.8 million (US$3.2 million) for the first half of 2008 as compared to RMB82.6 million (US$10.7 million) for the first half of 2007. Unaudited basic and dilutive loss per ADS was US$0.06 for the first half of 2008 as compared to basic and dilutive income per ADS of US$0.18 in the first half of 2007.

Mr. Wu Xiao An, Chairman of the Company, said "despite a general slowdown in the Chinese auto market and the reduced sale of Zhonghua sedans, the Group continued to record comprehensive income during the first six months of 2008. In order for the Group to improve market share and margins, we plan to install more marketing initiatives in an effort to boost sales, continue to develop new products to further enhance our product offering and increase economies of scale of the Zhonghua platform, and further streamline our operations in an attempt to improve production efficiency. In addition, we continue to work hard with our joint venture partner BMW to deepen component localization and reduce costs of our BMW vehicles. To further broaden our cooperation, the Group has been in active discussion with BMW regarding next phase capacity expansion for our joint venture. Concurrently, the Group is carrying on discussions with BMW and other strategic partners regarding entry into the auto aftermarket segments. Over the longer term, the Group will continue to enrich its product portfolio while actively exploring opportunities for further business diversification beyond the existing automobile and components manufacturing business."

The Company, incorporated in Bermuda, was established in 1992 to own a 51% interest in Shenyang Automotive, a Sino-foreign joint venture enterprise established in 1991.
