WH - Financial Results WH - Third Quarter 2012 Financial Results WSP Holdings (WH) reported revenues of $141.3 million in the third quarter of 2012, compared to $159.2 million in the second quarter of 2012, primarily due to a decrease in revenues generated from export sales. Domestic sales and export sales accounted for 52.8% and 47.2%, respectively, of total revenues for the third quarter of 2012. On a quarter-over-quarter basis, domestic sales decreased primarily due to a 13.3% decrease in average selling prices, partially offset by a 12.1% increase in domestic sales volume. Export sales decreased quarter-over-quarter primarily due to a 19.4% decrease in export sales volume, which was largely attributable to a decrease in sales of API products. On a year-over-year basis, domestic sales decreased primarily due to a 17.9% decrease in domestic sales volume, partially offset by a 2.7% increase in average selling prices. Export sales decreased year-over-year primarily due to a 20.0% decrease in export sales volume and a 17.0% decrease in average selling prices. API and non-API product sales accounted for 67.8% and 18.2%, respectively, of total revenues in the third quarter of 2012. Lower quarter-over-quarter sales revenues from API product sales were primarily due to a 9.4% decrease in sales volume and a 6.2% decrease in average selling prices. Non-API sales revenues increased quarter-over-quarter due to a 1.9% increase in average selling prices. "The third quarter of 2012 showed a decrease in total revenues from the second quarter of 2012, mainly due to a decrease in export sales of API products and a decrease in average product selling prices quarter-over-quarter." commented Mr. Longhua Piao, the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of WSP Holdings. "We will continue our marketing efforts to tap into new international markets amidst the current global economic uncertainties."
