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.
