Review of Financial Results

Revenue for FY2015 was $320.9 million, up 16.5% from $275.4 million for FY2014. Revenue is recognized on the percentage-of-completion method. The measures introduced by the Chinese central government three years ago to cool down the real estate market have had a negative impact on our business activities resulting in slower growth in revenue and a smaller gross margin in the past two years. The Company was also more selective in taking up new construction projects under the uncertain economic environment. However, with the real estate market seemingly more stabilized and with the full repayment of the secured debentures last year, the Company has been more aggressive in taking on new projects in the past two years. New projects taken up in FY2015 and FY2014 amounted to $204 million and $367 million respectively. Most of the Company's projects have duration between 1 to 3 years.

Cost of construction for FY2015 was $288.7 million, up 19.0% from $242.6 million for FY2013. The increase was primarily as a result of higher expenses associated with greater project volume. Cost of construction includes all direct material, labour, subcontract and other related costs, such as equipment repairs. The two major components of the cost of construction are direct material and labour costs. Direct material costs were $203.8 million and labour cost was $76.2 million in FY2015. In comparison, direct material costs and labour costs were $174.7 million and $58.6 million in FY2014.

Gross profit for FY2015 was $32.2 million, representing a margin of 10.0% on revenue. Gross profit for FY2014 was also $32.8 million, representing a margin of 11.9% on revenue. Historically, Boyuan's gross profit margins have been in the range of 14% to 17%.

G&A expenses were $6.0 million in FY2015 compared to $6.1 million in FY2014. G&A expenses have remained fairly stable year on year.

Interest and other income was $3.6 million in FY2015, compared to $4.4 million in FY2014. Imputed interest on accounts receivable and unbilled revenue of $3.5 million and $4.3 million was recorded to interest and other income for the years ended June 30, 2015 and 2014 respectively.

Interest expense was $7.1 million in FY2015, a decrease of $0.4 million over FY2014. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in interest paid on notes receivables discounting paid on early redemption. The Company has redeemed fewer notes receivables prior to their maturity date in the period as a result of improved cash flow position of the Company.

The other expense of $3.1 million for FY2015 (nil for FY2014) was related to the carrying amount of the financial guarantee contracts, representing the amount of obligation under these contracts as at June 30, 2015. The fair value of the financial guarantee contracts at initial recognition was assessed by a third-party independent valuation consultant. The fair value of financial guarantee contracts upon recognition is determined using option pricing models where the main assumptions are the probability of default by the specified counterparty extrapolated from market-based credit information and the amount of expected loss, as a result of the default.

After-tax net income for FY2015 was 12.4 million or $0.45 per fully diluted share while it was $6.1 million or $0.24 for FY2014.  The increase was principally due to an impairment loss recognized on unbilled revenue and a provision for allowance for doubtful debts recorded in FY2014.

As previously announced, The MCTO was issued as a result of Boyuan's delay in filing its audited annual financial statements for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2015 and related Management's Discussion & Analysis, Annual Information Form and CEO and CFO certification of filings (collectively, the "2015 Filings"), by the required date.  The MCTO restricts all trading in and all acquisitions of the securities of the Company, whether direct or indirect, by the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer of the Company until two full business days following the receipt by the OSC of all Annual Filings.  The MCTO will not affect the ability of persons who are not insiders of Boyuan to trade its securities.

Further to its press release issued on December 11, November 27 and 16, 2015, the Company intends to file restated interim financial statements and MD&A for the first quarter FY2016 by December 23, 2015.

Boyuan intends to satisfy the provisions of the Alternative Information Guidelines as set out in National Policy 12 - 203 for as long as Boyuan remains in default, including the issuance of further by-weekly default status reports, each of which will be issued in the form of a press release. A general cease trade order may be issued if Boyuan fails to file such default status reports on a timely basis.
