Trading Update

HaiKe Chemical Group Limited ("HaiKe" the "Group" or the "Company"), the AIM quoted (AIM: HAIK) specialty chemical business based in Shandong Province, China, today provides an update on trading ahead of its final results for the twelve-month period ended 31 December 2016.

The Group has delivered a positive operational performance in the second half of the year driven by the Company's focus on higher margin chemical products, product innovation and cost controls. As a result, the Group anticipates that it will report a profit for the year ended 31 December 2016 considerably ahead of last year.

   --      Unaudited profit for the year was CNY18.1 million (2015: CNY4.1 million). 

-- Unaudited total revenues were CNY725.9 million, marginally below FY2015 (2015: CNY727.5 million).

-- Unaudited gross margins increased to 15.8% (2015: 11.6%) as the Company continued to adjust its product mix. Sales of more profitable, high-end products accounted for 8.1% of 2016 sales (2015: 3.0%).

-- Unaudited overall sales volumes were 125,395 tons which were comparable to FY2015 (2015: 125,098 tons).

-- Unaudited average selling prices decreased by 1.8% to CNY5,529 / ton (2015: CNY5,629 / ton), in the face of strong competition.

-- Unaudited selling expenses rose by 16.7% to CNY40.5 million (2015: CNY34.7 million) due to more aggressive sales and marketing activities in restrained market conditions.

-- Unaudited general and administrative expenses increased by 22.2% to CNY50.3 million (2015: CNY41.2 million). This was attributable to increases in labour costs and R&D expenses of 15.9% and 35.6% respectively.

-- Unaudited interest expenses dropped to CNY3.9 million (2015: CNY20.7 million) following repayment of bank loans during 2015. Total borrowings at 31 December 2016 were CNY80 million (30 June 2016: CNY80 million).

-- At 31 December 2016 the Company's cash and cash equivalent balances were CNY57.2 million (30 June 2016: CNY73.5 million).

Note: as at 31 December 2016 the GBP/CNY exchange rate was 1:8.5094
