VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hanwei Energy Services Corp. (TSX: HE) (“Hanwei” or the “Company”), today reported its financial results for the third quarter and nine months ended December 31, 2021 (“Q3 2022” and “YTD”). All amounts are in Canadian Dollars unless otherwise noted.

Prior to the sale of its oil & gas business and FRP pipe business, Hanwei's principal business operations are in two segments of the oil and gas industry as an operator and developer of its oil and gas assets in Canada and as a specialized pipe supplier internationally.

No revenues were recorded for Q3 2022 due to the divestment of its FRP pipe business as of October 1, 2021 and divestment of its oil and gas business as of August 1, 2021, compared to $3.21 million for the same quarter of the prior year.

In January 2022, the Company completed the sale of its FRP pipe business with October 1, 2021 as the transaction effective date; therefore, no revenues, gross profit and expenses related were recognized in Q3 2022. The Company recognized a gain of $80,000 and cumulative foreign exchange gain of $13.51 million on the sale of its FRP pipe business.

Adjusted EBITDA for Q3 2022 was negative $102,000 as a result of Adjusted EBITDA attributable to FRP pipe business and oil & gas business were excluded, as compared to Adjusted EBITDA of negative $109,000 for the same quarter in the prior year.

The Company made a profit of $13.42 million in Q3 2022 as compared to a net income of $0.18 million in the quarter of the prior year. The substantial difference was mainly due to the gain of $80,000 and the reclassification of cumulative translation exchange gain of $13.51 million as finance income on sale of the Company’s FRP pipe business.

YTD total revenues were $3.21 million, a 40% decrease from prior year’s revenues of $5.32 million.

YTD Adjusted EBITDA was negative $0.54 million, an improvement of $0.67 million from negative $1.21 million for the same period of the prior year mainly because YTD Adjusted EBITDA from oil and gas business had an improvement of $0.78 million as compared to the same period in the prior year.

YTD net income was $13.32 million as compared to a loss of $1.70 million for the same period of the prior year. The significant difference was mainly due to the gain of $1.65 million on sale of the Company’s subsidiaries and the reclassification of cumulative translation exchange gain of $13.51 million as finance income as previously stated.

At the end of December 2021, the Company’s current ratio (current assets divided by current liabilities) was 1.07.
