BEIJING, Nov. 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Hollysys Automation Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: HOLI) (“Hollysys” or the “Company”), a leading provider of automation and control technologies and applications in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2023 ended September 30, 2022.

The Industrial Automation (“IA”) business maintained its strong momentum. In the petrochemical and chemical field, the Company continued to achieve breakthroughs on national key projects and cultivating major customers. The Company successfully signed the 100-billion-square-meter large gas field project, namely the Phase I Project of China National Offshore Oil Corporation (“CNOOC”)’s largest condensate gas field in Bohai Bay, and will provide integrated solutions of Distributed Control System (“DCS”), Safety Instrumented System (“SIS”) and Asset Management System (“AMS”), among others. The gas field will alleviate the gas shortage in North China and provide strong support for China’s green and low-carbon transformation. Besides, the Sinopec Group Million Ton Ethylene Project signed in the last fiscal quarter will see the first batch delivery before the end of 2022. This project represents a milestone breakthrough in Hollysys’ petrochemical business, as the Company accomplished the pilot application of optical bus control system (“OCS”) related new technologies in ethylene units. This project will lay a solid technical foundation for the intellectualization of large production equipment and contribute to the sustainable development of the national energy.

In the smart factory field, Hollysys saw encouraging business growth with upgraded capabilities of integrated solutions. The Company signed the Sinopec power center simulation project which covers the whole range of high-precision excitation virtual imitation machine systems. The successful implementation of Hollysys simulation system in Sinopec will provide strong support and valuable field implementation experience for the Company’s further cooperation with the “Chinese Three Barrels of Oil” and other oil and gas enterprises. Meanwhile, Hollysys completed the delivery of a 230,000 tons phenolic resin project signed with a company based in Shandong Province, providing fully autonomous and controllable HiaBatch Batch control system with DCS and Batch Processing System (“BATCH”) control systems, which is expected to facilitate the industrial upgrading with digital customized solutions, and promote the standardization of the complex process for batch production enterprises.

The food and pharmaceutical sectors also demonstrated a steady business growth. The Company signed a significant project with a leading enterprise of generic contrast media products on producing iodiproamine and regadesone. Hollysys will act as the overall instrument control contractor that provides DCS system, instrument valves and installation in this project. The project will locate in Taizhou, Zhejiang Province, which is the national center for the production of active pharmaceutical ingredients (“APIs”), and such project will offer a significant strategic opportunity for the Company’s further development in the pharmaceutical sector.

The strategic layout and developments in the Company’s overseas business also witnessed steady progress. The Company successfully signed the OBI nickel-iron project in Indonesia with a resource company, with Hollysys providing DCS, Digital Electro-Hydraulic(“DEH”) control system with over 60,000 optical points, Manufacturing Execution System (“MES”), AMS, information security and other customized products with integrated and comprehensive intelligent solutions. This project is a large-scale smelting project built under the national “Belt and Road” initiative that will promote the comprehensive utilization of nickel ore resources and contribute to the security and sustainable development of nickel resource supply chain.

In the high-speed rail sector, the Company continued to sign new contracts and deliver on existing projects, maintaining its position in existing product lines and exploring opportunities in merging intelligent product lines. Leveraging the customer recognition of its technical strength and services, the Company signed a contract to provide Radio Block Center (“RBC”), Train Control Center (“TCC”), Lineside Electronic Unit (“LEU”) and other equipment for the Guizhou section of Guiyang-Nanning Railway. The Company also delivered several projects, including the Yiyang-Changsha section of Changde-Yiyang-Changsha High-Speed Railway project, which went into operation in this fiscal quarter despite various challenges, with Hollysys being the main supplier of Chinese Train Control System Level 3 (“CTCS-3”), providing systems such as RBC, TCC and Temporary Speed Restriction Server (“TSRS”). In the subway sector, Traffic Operation System (“TOS”) Platform, a smart urban rail solution based on cloud platform, pioneers the use of industrial Internet in the urban rail transit sector, and was applied in the Phase I Project of Beijing Metro Line 19. Hollysys has confidence in contributing to the rail transit system to become faster and smarter in the future based on its professional ability and experience accumulated over the past three decades.

The mechanical and electrical solutions (“M&E”) segment of the Company also manifested a stable performance with our smooth executions on various projects. The risk monitor and control are still expected to be our future focus in this field.

With its continuous dedication to the industry and the support of experienced and passionate experts, Hollysys  believes that it will continue to create greater value for clients and shareholders.

Operational Results Analysis for the First Quarter Ended September 30, 2022

Compared to the first quarter of the prior fiscal year, the total revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2022 increased from $153.4 million to $170.0 million, representing an increase of 10.9%. Broken down by the revenue types, integrated solutions contracts revenue increased by 14.9% to $143.1 million, products sales revenue increased by 22.1% to $11.8 million, and services revenue decreased by 21.0% to $15.1 million.

Since the majority of the Company’s revenues are denominated in RMB, and the Company’s financial results are reported in U.S. dollars, the recent depreciation of the RMB against the U.S. dollar has exerted a relatively significant negative impact on the value of contracts and revenue reported in U.S. dollar terms.

The Company’s total revenues can also be presented by segment as shown in the table below:

Selling expenses were $13.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022, representing an increase of $3.6 million, or 38.3%, compared to $9.4 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Research and development expenses as a percentage of total revenues were 10.2% and 10.5% for the three months ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, respectively.

Non-GAAP Measures

To supplement our consolidated financial statements, which are prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP, in evaluating our results, we use the following non-GAAP financial measures: non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin of integrated solutions contracts, non-GAAP net income attributable to Hollysys Automation Technologies Ltd., as well as non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per share.

These non-GAAP financial measures serve as additional indicators of our operating performance and not as any replacement for other measures in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We believe these non-GAAP measures help identify underlying trends in the Company’s business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of the share-based compensation expenses, which are calculated based on the number of shares or options granted and the fair value as of the grant date, and amortization of acquired intangible assets. They will not result in any cash inflows or outflows. We believe that using non-GAAP measures help our shareholders to have a better understanding of our operating results and growth prospects.

Non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin of integrated solutions contracts, non-GAAP net income attributable to Hollysys Automation Technologies Ltd., as well as non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per share should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to gross profit and gross margin, gross profit and gross margin of integrated solutions contracts, net income attributable to Hollysys Automation Technologies Ltd., basic and diluted earnings per share, or any other measure of performance, or as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance. Investors are encouraged to review the historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Non-GAAP gross profit and gross margin, non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin of integrated solutions contracts, non-GAAP net income attributable to Hollysys Automation Technologies Ltd., as well as non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per share presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to the Company’s data. The Company encourages investors and others to review the Company’s financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

We define non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin as gross profit and gross margin, respectively, adjusted to exclude non-cash amortization of acquired intangibles. The following table provides a reconciliation of our gross profit and gross margin to non-GAAP gross profit and non-GAAP gross margin for the periods indicated.
