MingZhu Logistics Announces Audited Full Year 2020 Financial Results

SHENZHEN, June 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — MingZhu Logistics Holdings Limited ("MingZhu" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: YGMZ), an elite provider of logistics and transportation services to businesses, today announced its audited financial results for the full year ended December 31, 2020.

Mr. Jinlong Yang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MingZhu Logistics Holdings Limited, commented, "2020 was a year of major milestone achievements, as we executed on our business strategy and strengthened our financial position through our successful initial public offering in October. Our team did an excellent job helping customers to navigate the dynamic pandemic environment, where partial and full shutdowns were a normal, disruptive occurrence. We played an important role in helping transport our customers goods, without which costly inventory losses and supply shortages would only increase. At the same time, we were faced with higher operating costs that directly impacted our profitability. These included higher fuel charges and driver costs, among other factors. The good news is the business environment has stabilized and returned to more of a growth mode with the post-COVID reopening efforts and adoption of health safety practices."

"We are very optimistic about the Company’s growth prospects in 2021 and beyond, as we are positioned to benefit from the reopening of the global economy and increased customer demand. As we look to the future, we are excited to be entering a new phase of growth for Mingzhu Logistics. One very exciting development we expect will drive accelerated business growth over the coming years, is the recent pairing of our strong track record of reliable transportation with China Merchants, one of China’s oldest and biggest companies, in an exclusive cooperation to solve the first and last mile of slack coal transport. Xinjiang occupies a preeminent position as one of the core transportation hubs of the One Belt One Road and serves as a strategic gateway. The initial agreement is expected to result in revenue to MingZhu Logistics of approximately RMB 80 million (approximately USD$12.3 million), mainly in 2021. We also continue to drive organic growth and are focused building increased value for our shareholders."

Financial Results

Total revenues were $18.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to $29.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, representing a decrease of 36.1% or $10.6 million. The decrease was primarily attributable to diminished customer demand during the COVID-19 pandemic. With daily life in China gradually returning to normal since April, our business related to logistics industry has gone back to normal, as well. However, further lockdowns were caused from time to time as new cases were found causing the management to relocate trucks and trailers to other regions. The management will continue to follow the development of the pandemic.

During the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019, sales to the Company’s top five customers accounted for approximately 78.2% and 66.7%, respectively. For the years ended December 31, 2020, and 2019, 72.0% and 51.7% of total revenue, respectively, was generated from the Guangdong province, while 28.0% and 48.3% was generated from the Xinjiang province, respectively.  

Total costs and expenses were $17.4 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to $26.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, representing a decrease of 34.8% or $9.3 million. The decrease was primarily the result of lower transportation costs due to the reduced revenue level. The Company recorded income from operations of approximately $1.4 million and $2.7 million for the years ended 2020 and 2019, respectively.

Comprehensive income was $1.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to $1.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2019, with net income of $0.08 per basic and diluted share and $0.18 per basic and diluted share, respectively. 

There were 9,629,783 basic shares and 9,633,993 shares on a diluted basis for the year ended December 31, 2020, compared to 9,000,000 shares on a basic and diluted basis for the year ended December 31, 2019. The share count gives retroactive effect to the re-denomination and nominal issuance of shares effected on February 12, 2020.

The Company had an $11.6 million balance of cash and restricted cash, as of December 31, 2020, with a $5.3 million accounts receivable balance and an $11.4 million other receivables balance.
