Zhongpin's Management Discusses Q2 2012 Results - Earnings Call Transcript

First is Warren Wang, our CFO, who will cover our financial results. Warren, please.

Warren Wang

Thank you, Sterling. First, I will briefly cover our financial results for the second quarter of 2012. First, cash flow for the first half of 2012. In the first six months of 2012, our net cash flow increased cash and equivalents by $7.5 million, bringing total to cash and equivalents as of June 30, to a $143.3 million. Working capital at June 30, was a negative $21.3 million. Net cash used in operating activities in the first six months was $23.6 million, primarily from net income that provided $23.2 million, depreciation that provided $11.2 million, purchase deposits that provided $7.1 million, accounts receivable and accounts payable that used a net of $38.3 million, inventories that used $22.4 million.

Net cash used in investing activities in the first six months was $57 million, primarily for construction in progress, deposits for the purchase of land use rights, and additions to land use rights, and property and equipment that together used $57 million.

Net cash provided by financing activities in the first half of 2012 was $88.7 million, primarily from the proceeds from loans and notes, net of repayments, that provided $101.5 million, an increase in restricted cash that used $7.0 million, a repayment of a capital lease obligation that used $3 million, and repurchases of common stock that used $2.8 million.

As a result, including the effect from foreign currency exchange rate changes on cash, Zhongpin increased its cash and cash equivalents by $7.5 million in the first half of 2012. Cash and cash equivalents on June 30, 2012 totaled $143.3 million compared with $135.8 million as of December 31, 2011.

We believe our existing cash and cash equivalents, together with our ability to secure bank borrowings, will be sufficient to finance our investment in new facilities, with budgeted capital expenditures of about $125.2 million over the next 12 months, and to satisfy our working capital needs. We intends to satisfy our short-term debt obligations that mature over the next 12 months through additional short-term bank loans, in most cases by rolling over the maturing loans into new short-term loans with the same lenders.
