For the year ended September 30, 2023, revenue increased by approximately $7.96 million, or 10.42%, to approximately $84.33 million from approximately $76.37 million for the year ended September 30, 2022. The increase in revenues was primarily driven by the following factors:

1)        Due to the end of control measures on COVID-19 since 2022 December, construction market recovered and we delivered several orders delayed by mentioned control measures.

2)        We were extending business in domestic market in China. Our domestic sales increased over 13.8% year-over-year to $73.7 million which was offset by a slight decrease of 9.6%, year -over-year, of our international sales revenue.

Gross profit

Gross profit margin was 14.65% for the year ended September 30, 2023, compared to 14.91% for the year ended September 30, 2022. The slight decrease in gross profit margin was mainly due to increased raw material prices, which drove up the cost of sales, while weighted ASP remained stable as we were extending domestic markets.

Selling, general and administrative (“SGA”) expenses

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased by approximately $0.89 million, or 13.73%, to approximately $7.34 million for the year ended September 30, 2023 as compared to approximately $6.45 million for the year ended September 30, 2022. The increase in SGA expenses was mainly due to the following: i) $0.43 million bad debt expense provision during the year ended September 30, 2023, while $0.56 million bad debt recovery during the year ended September 30, 2022; and ii) increased freight and agency expenses related to the domestic market development.

Management is committed to expending research and development activities continually for more orders.

The decrease in interest expense was mainly due to decreased bank loan the Company borrowed from the banks.

Other income and expense

The Company’s net other income was approximately $0.70 million, which was mainly attributable to dividend income received from invested company, government grant received and rental income during fiscal year 2023.The Company’s net other income was approximately $1.40 million, which was mainly attributable to dividend income and government grant received during fiscal year 2022.
