("Guangdong Mingyang"), has formed a joint venture with Huaneng Renewables Corporation Limited ("Huaneng Renewables") (HKEx Stock Code: 0958), a leading pure-play renewable energy company in China, to specialize in the development of wind and solar power projects in China and overseas markets.
  • Strategic Cooperation with CGNPC – On September 10, 2012, the Company announced that Guangdong Mingyang has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with China Guangdong Nuclear Power Holding Co., Ltd. ("CGNPC"), a leading clean energy supplier and energy services provider in China, to jointly develop wind and solar power projects.
  • Share Repurchase Program – During the third quarter of 2012, the Company did not make any repurchases under its share repurchase program.

Mr. Zhang commented, "Our financial performance in the third quarter continued to improve over the previous quarter, with gross margin improving by approximately 2.9% and operating margin improving by 3.0%. Ming Yang intends to provide its customers with the best solutions in wind power generation through a range of customized products and services. We aim to deliver our products and services with higher power generation, higher efficiency and better reliability at lower cost of energy. We are glad that our new order intake during the third quarter was 302MW, including 123 units for our new 2.0MW WTGs, and we look forward to expanding our market presence in the 2.0MW plus WTG market in China."

"During this quarter, we had formed a strategic partnership with Reliance Group of India which is a significant development of our overseas market strategy. We continue to work with key domestic players, including Huaneng Renewables and CGNPC, on wind power project development in China.  Again, this is testament to our commitment of offering superior products and services to our customers."

Mr. Zhang concluded, "We continue to invest for the future, and we believe that our customized business model will continue to help Ming Yang capitalize on market opportunities both in China and overseas markets, and bolster its competitiveness despite challenging market conditions."

Third Quarter 2012 Unaudited Financial Results

Revenue

Revenue in the third quarter of 2012 was RMB787.8 million (US$125.3 million), representing a decrease of 58.6% from RMB1,904.8 million in the corresponding period in 2011. WTGs for which revenue was recognized amounted to an equivalent wind power project output of 228MW, or 152 units of 1.5MW WTGs, compared to 555MW, or 370 units of 1.5MW WTGs, for the corresponding period in 2011. The decrease in revenue in the third quarter was primarily due to the overall weakened market demand for WTGs in China.

As of September 30, 2012, the Company installed 33 units of WTGs which were commissioned through its EPC program but the funding to the project developer was subject to final approval by local banks. As a result, in keeping with its revenue recognition policy, the Company did not recognize revenue of approximately RMB160.0 million (US$25.5 million) for these 33 units of WTGs during this quarter.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2012 was RMB137.2 million (US$21.8 million), representing a decrease of 55.1% from RMB305.6 million for the corresponding period in 2011. Gross margin in the third quarter of 2012 was 17.4%, compared to 16.0% for the corresponding period in 2011. The decline in gross profit was a result of weakened demand overall. The gross margin, however, improved 1.4% year-over-year, primarily due to the favorable mix of higher margin sales contracts for WTGs recognized during the third quarter of 2012.

Selling and Distribution Expenses

Selling and distribution expenses were RMB38.1 million (US$6.1 million) for the third quarter of 2012, compared to RMB61.4 million for the corresponding period in 2011, representing a decrease of 37.9%, primarily due to the decreased transportation expenses as a result of fewer number of WTGs deliveries, less bidding charges incurred due to less bidding activities and less share-based compensation expenses incurred during the period.

Administrative Expenses

Administrative expenses were RMB59.3 million (US$9.4 million) for the third quarter of 2012, compared to RMB87.1 million for the corresponding period in 2011, representing a decrease of 31.9%, primarily due to the fact that there was a provision of receivables of RMB28.7 million in the third quarter of 2011 whereas there was a RMB4.7 million (US$0.7 million) provision in the corresponding period in 2012.

Research and Development Expenses

Research and development expenses were RMB23.4 million (US$3.7 million) for the third quarter of 2012, compared to RMB19.2 million for the corresponding period in 2011, representing an increase of 21.9%. This increase was primarily due to the fact that the Company is currently carrying out more wind turbine development projects, resulting in an increase in staff costs with more engineers employed, and higher material consumption and depreciation charges.

Net Finance Expense

Net finance expense was RMB21.0 million (US$3.3 million) for the third quarter of 2012, compared to RMB16.3 million in the corresponding period of 2011.

Profit Before Income Tax Expense

Profit before income tax expense was RMB11.1 million (US$1.8 million) for the third quarter of 2012, compared to RMB131.1 million in the corresponding period of 2011.

Income Tax Expense

Income tax expense was RMB7.9 million (US$1.3 million) for the third quarter of 2012, compared to RMB28.4 million in the corresponding period of 2011.

Total Comprehensive Income and Earnings per Share

Total comprehensive income for the third quarter of 2012 was RMB4.9 million (US$0.8 million), compared to RMB88.4 million in the corresponding period of 2011.

For the third quarter of 2012, basic and diluted earnings per share was RMB0.03 (US$0.005), compared to RMB0.82 for the corresponding period in 2011.

Cash and Cash Equivalents

Cash and cash equivalents as of September 30, 2012 were RMB1,470.2 million (US$233.9 million), compared to RMB1,339.5 million as of December 31, 2011.

Business Update

Order Book Update

New Sales Contracts – During the third quarter of 2012, Ming Yang entered into sales contracts for wind power projects with a total output of 302MW, representing 37 units of 1.5MW WTGs and 123 units of 2.0MW WTGs.

Order Backlog – As of September 30, 2012, the Company's order backlog amounted to 2.2 GW, representing 1,136 units of 1.5MW WTGs, 123 units of 2.0MW WTGs, 67 units of 2.5-3.0MW SCD WTGs and 1 unit of 6.0 MW SCD WTG. Cumulative signed orders since its inception amounted to 5.6GW, representing 3,417 units of 1.5MW WTGs, 123 units of 2.0MW WTGs, 84 units of 2.5-3.0MW SCD WTGs and 1 unit of 6.0MW SCD WTG.

TechCrunch reported that "Berlin-based relayr, maker of the WunderBar, an Internet of Things (IoT) hardware dev kit which resembles a chunky chocolate bar, has closed a $2.3 million seed round, from unnamed U.S. and Switzerland-based investors.
