EFuture Announces First Quarter 2013 Unaudited Financial Results

Hardware revenue in the first quarter 2013 increased 88% year-over-year to RMB4.2 million (US$0.7 million) from RMB2.2 million in the first quarter 2012. The increase was a result of the completion of some large contracts from grocery industry in the first quarter 2013.

Service fee income for the first quarter 2013 decreased 7% year-over-year to RMB11.7 million (US$1.9 million) from RMB12.6 million in the first quarter 2012, which was primarily attributable to decreased revenue recognized in customization services in the grocery industry, which was partially offset by an increase in sales of maintenance and consulting services.

Cost of Revenue

Cost of revenue for the first quarter 2013 decreased 4% to RMB13.8 million (US$2.2 million) from RMB14.3 million in the first quarter 2012.

The improvement in gross margin was mainly due to the decreased amortization cost of self-developed software and acquired software, which comprises part of the cost of revenue, as some of the software had been fully-amortized after the first quarter 2012.
