SINGAPORE, Aug. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE: CYD) ("China Yuchai" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer and distributor of engines for on- and off-road applications in China through its main operating subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited ("GYMCL"), announced today its unaudited consolidated financial results for the second quarter and the first six months ended June 30, 2020. The financial information presented herein for the second quarters of 2020 and 2019 is reported using International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") as issued by the International Accounting Standards Board.

Financial Highlights for the Second Quarter of 2020

  • Revenue increased by 34.7% to RMB 6.5 billion (US$ 925.2 million) from RMB 4.9 billion in the second quarter of 2019;
  • Gross profit rose by 33.0% to RMB 948.1 million (US$ 133.9 million), a 14.5% gross margin, compared with RMB 712.9 million and a gross margin of 14.7% in the second quarter of 2019;
  • Operating profit increased by 53.6% to RMB 448.7 million (US$ 63.4 million), an operating margin of 6.9%, compared with RMB 292.2 million and an operating margin of 6.0% in the second quarter of 2019;
  • Net earnings attributable to China Yuchai’s shareholders increased by 66.4% to RMB 244.7 million (US$ 34.6 million) compared with RMB 147.0 million in the second quarter of 2019;
  • Basic and diluted earnings per share grew by 66.4% to RMB 5.99 (US$ 0.85) compared with RMB 3.60 for the second quarter of 2019;
  • Total number of engines sold increased by 32.0% to 145,278 units compared with 110,059 units in the second quarter of 2019.

Revenue for the second quarter of 2020 increased by 34.7% to RMB 6.5 billion (US$ 925.2 million) compared to RMB 4.9 billion in the second quarter of 2019.

The total number of engines sold by GYMCL during the second quarter of 2020 was 145,278 units, an increase of 32.0% compared with 110,059 units in the second quarter of 2019. The increase was mainly due to higher engine sales to the truck market and off-road segments, particularly unit sales to both the heavy- and medium-duty truck market segments which more than offset an overall sales decline in the bus engine segment.  

According to data reported by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers ("CAAM") (excluding sales of gasoline-powered and electric-powered vehicles), in the second quarter of 2020, sales of buses increased slightly by 1.8% while truck sales rose by 56.1%. According to CAAM, in the second quarter of 2020, commercial vehicle (excluding sales of gasoline-powered and electric-powered vehicles) increased by 50.5% compared to the second quarter of 2019, while GYMCL sales to the on-road commercial vehicle market increased by 23.3%.  

GYMCL’s unit sales to the off-road market increased by 51.7% compared with the second quarter of 2019.

Gross profit increased by 33.0% to RMB 948.1 million (US$ 133.9 million) compared with RMB 712.9 million in the second quarter of 2019. Gross margin was 14.5% compared with 14.7% in the second quarter of 2019.

Other operating income was RMB 61.8 million (US$ 8.7 million), compared with RMB 98.8 million in the second quarter of 2019. The decrease was mainly due to lower government grants in the second quarter of 2020.  

Research and development ("R&D") expenses increased by 24.0% to RMB 137.0 million (US$ 19.4 million) compared with RMB 110.5 million in the second quarter of 2019. Higher R&D expenses in the second quarter of 2020 were mainly due to higher development costs for National VI and Tier 4 engines on testing and experimental costs. In the second quarter of 2020, the R&D capitalization amount was RMB 143.3 million (US$ 20.2 million). The Company continues to further develop its new National VI and Tier 4 engines for the on- and off-road markets, respectively. In the second quarter of 2020, the total R&D expenditure including capitalized costs, was RMB 280.3 million (US$ 39.6 million) and it represented 4.3% of net revenue compared with 3.6% in the second quarter of 2019.

Selling, general and administrative ("SG&A") expenses increased by 3.7% to RMB 424.1 million (US$ 59.9 million) from RMB 408.9 million in the second quarter of 2019. The increase primarily resulted from higher warranty expenses and outbound freight expenses in the second quarter of 2020. SG&A expenses represented 6.5% of revenue compared with 8.4% in the second quarter of 2019.

Operating profit increased by 53.6% to RMB 448.7 million (US$ 63.4 million) from RMB 292.2 million in the second quarter of 2019.  The operating margin was 6.9% compared with 6.0% in the second quarter of 2019.

Finance costs decreased by 17.4% to RMB 26.7 million (US$ 3.8 million) from RMB 32.4 million in the second quarter of 2019. Lower finance costs mainly resulted from reduced bills discounting amount compared with the second quarter of 2019.

Net profit attributable to China Yuchai’s shareholders increased 66.4% to RMB 244.7 million (US$ 34.6 million), compared with RMB 147.0 million in the second quarter of 2019.

Basic and diluted earnings per share rose by 66.4% to RMB 5.99 (US$ 0.85), compared with RMB 3.60 in the second quarter of 2019.

Basic and diluted earnings per share in the second quarters of 2020 and 2019 were based on a weighted average of 40,858,290 shares.

The total number of engines sold by GYMCL in the first half of 2020 was 213,182 units compared with 211,359 units in the same period last year. The increase was mainly due to higher engine sales in the heavy-duty truck and off-road segments, particularly agricultural engines, which more than offset the sales decline in the bus segment.

Gross profit was RMB 1.5 billion (US$ 208.8 million), compared with RMB 1.5 billion in the same period last year. Gross margin decreased to 14.8% as compared with 16.3% a year ago. The decline in gross margin was mainly attributable to product mix.

Other operating income declined by 26.0% to RMB 105.7 million (US$ 14.9 million) compared with RMB 142.8 million in the same period last year. The decrease was mainly due to lower government grants compared with the same period last year.

Higher R&D expenses in the first half of 2020 were mainly due to higher development costs for National VI and Tier 4 engines on testing and experimental costs. In the first half of 2020, the R&D capitalization amount was RMB 189.7 million (US$ 26.8 million). The Company continued with its initiatives to develop new engines compliant with China’s next emission standards, National VI and Tier 4, and to improve engine performance and quality.

SG&A expenses decreased by 3.5% to RMB 757.4 million (US$ 107.0 million) from RMB 785.1 million in the same period last year. The decrease was mainly due to lower warranty expenses and reduced outward freight costs, particularly in the first quarter of 2020, compared with the same period last year. SG&A expenses represented 7.6% of the net revenue for the first half of 2020 compared with 8.7% in the same period last year.

Finance costs increased to RMB 63.2 million (US$ 8.9 million) from RMB 57.6 million in the same period last year, an increase of approximately RMB 5.5 million. Higher finance costs mainly resulted from an increase in borrowings compared to the same period last year.
