SIJIA issues profit warning
Sijia Group (HK: 1863) issued a profit warning, expecting it likely to record a bottom line decline for the year ended December 31, 2012 and for the six months ended June 30, 2013, as compared to earlier corresponding periods.
Such decline is mainly attributable to the decrease in the gross profit of certain products of the group as a result of the decrease in market selling prices of such products and the increase in raw material costs.
In mid-October, Sijia Group appointed Zhonghui ANDA as auditors for the year ended December 31, 2012, and projected Zhonghui would complete its auditing work for the results in 2012 before the end of November.
Sijia is principally engaged in the design, development, manufacture and sale of polymer processed high strength polyester fabric composite materials, and downstream related inflatable and waterproof products targeting the outdoor leisure, recreation and sports consumer markets.
