Revenues

Total revenue was $8.23 million in the fiscal year 2023, an increase of 2.5% from $8.03 million in the fiscal year 2022. The increase was primarily due to increases in the revenue from mold production and machining services, and partially offset by the decrease in revenue from mold repair. After consideration of the impact of rising exchange rates, total revenue increased by 7.4% or 2.5 million in RMB base currency.

Revenue from mold production was $6.64 million in the fiscal year 2023, which increased by 0.8% from $6.58 million in the fiscal year 2022. Despite the adverse impact of exchange rate fluctuations, mold production volume and revenues still represented a slight increase, this indicates that Wuxi Mingteng Mould Technology Co., Ltd. (“Wuxi Mingteng Mould”) maintains long-term relationships with major customers and continues to open up the mold market in the fiscal year 2023. In addition, Wuxi Mingteng Mould entered the aluminum alloy pressure casting mold business in the fiscal year 2022. Revenue from this product has experienced rapid growth in the fiscal year 2023, which accounted for 23% and 10% of our total mold production sales for the year ended December 31, 2023 and 2022, respectively. Currently, Runxingtai (Changzhou) Technology Co., Ltd. has become a key customer for the future growth of this business.

Revenue from mold repair was $1.08 million in the fiscal year 2023, which decreased by 4.6% from $1.14 million in the fiscal year 2022. The order volume of mold repair in the fiscal year 2023 has actually increased by 10% compared to the same period in 2022, and after considering the adverse effect from the exchange rate fluctuation, the revenue from mold repair maintained relatively stable. In addition, certain delivered products had not yet received the customer’s confirmation of acceptance notice, and this portion of the revenue totaling $65,890 will be recognized after passing the acceptance inspection in the future.

Revenue from machining services was $0.50 million in the fiscal year 2023, which increased by 64.2% from $0.31 million in the fiscal year 2022. The increase was mainly due to the Company’s improvement in the production capacity in the second half of year 2023.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues was $4.83 million in the fiscal year 2023, which increased by 19.5% from $4.05 million in the fiscal year 2022. The cost of revenues mainly comes from raw material costs, manufacturing costs and labor costs. The revenues had not increased significantly, the reasons that costs growth has far exceed the growth of revenues as follows:

  • First is the increase in the investment in machinery and equipment in the fiscal year 2023 and 2022.
  • Second, Wuxi Mingteng Mould entered the aluminum alloy pressure casting mold business in the fiscal year 2022. As a new entrant in the aluminum alloy pressure casting mold business, Wuxi Mingteng Mould does not have the ability to handle the whole manufacturing process and needed to purchase outside processing services, the cost of outside processing increased by $250,948.
  • Last, in order to promote the future development of the aluminum alloy pressure casting mold business and machining service and expand production capacity, Wuxi Mingteng Mould hired more production labor in the fiscal year 2023, which lead to an increase in labor cost by approximately $285,835 compared with the same period in the fiscal year 2022.

Gross Profit

Gross profit was $3.32 million in the fiscal year 2023, which decreased by 15.1% from $3.91million for fiscal year 2022. Gross profit margin was 40.4% for fiscal year 2023, compared to 48.8% for fiscal year 2022.

Gross margins for mold production, mold repair and machining services were 37.5%, 61.6%, and 46.0%, respectively, for fiscal year 2023, compared to 44.5%, 73.7%, and 68.7%, respectively, for fiscal year 2022.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses were $1.58 million in the fiscal year 2023, which increased by 1.9% from $1.55 million in the fiscal year 2022.

  • Selling expenses were $153,213 in the fiscal year 2023, which increased by 15.6% from $132,542 in the fiscal year 2022, primarily due to the Company continuing to open up the mold market, which lead to an increase in business entertainment expenses and travel expenses.
  • General and administrative expenses were $797,140 in the fiscal year 2023, which decreased by 14.0% from $926,786 in the fiscal year 2022, primarily due to a) the validity period for the accrual of social security and housing provident funds under the laws of the PRC for the fiscal year 2020 and 2021 has expired on December 31,2023, which should be written off in the fiscal year 2023, led to the decrease of $273,885 in 2023 compared to 2022; b) payment for audit fees of $290,000 in the fiscal year 2023, increased by $62,259 from $227,741 in the fiscal year 2022; and c) the increase of consulting fee in the fiscal year 2023 by $26,305 compared with the same period in 2022; and d) the increase of entertainment expenses in the fiscal year 2023 by $57,799 compared with the same period in 2022.
  • Research and development expenses were $630,752 in the fiscal year 2023, which increased by 28.1% from $492,526 in the fiscal year 2022. This increase was mainly attributable to the increase in R&D raw material consumption by $133,661 in 2023 due to the Company increased efforts in R&D in order to expand the market.
