Agoracom Blog Small-Cap Company Feature: Yucheng Technologies

Posted by AGORACOM at 9:30 AM on Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

As many of you know, we are very bullish on the long-term future of Chinese small cap and mid cap companies for two reasons:

1] The obvious reason – China is the fastest growing economy on the planet and nothing is going to slow down its ascent over the next 50 years and beyond. Investing in growth companies there just makes too much sense.

2] Great Results and Valuations – Many Small Cap Chinese Companies are listing in the US (OTCBB, NYSE Alternext and NASDAQ) with great financial results. Unlike many dubious US Small Cap Companies, Chinese Companies don’t seem to believe in losing money or failing to execute in a business plan. As such, 7-digit revenues and profits are very common.

From a valuation point of view, many Chinese companies became a victim of their own success in Q4 2008 and Q1 2009. Why? When the world needed to start liquidating, one of the first places they looked were China where most investors had significant gains to sell into. This resulted in the proverbial baby being thrown out with the bathwater and some great valuations.

China Stocks TV Segment


  • Fully diluted non-GAAP EPS was USD 0.16, as compared to USD 0.15 in the second quarter of 2008.
  • Total net revenue grew 41.9% year-over-year to USD 15.1M.
  • Yucheng had USD 32.8M in cash, compared to USD 26.0M in the second  quarter of 2008.


Yucheng’s EPS for fully diluted shares on a consolidated basis were USD 0.16 (non-GAAP) and USD 0.14 (GAAP), compared to USD 0.15 (non-GAAP) and USD 0.13 (GAAP) in the second quarter of 2008. These figures include a USD 0.03 gain from the disposal of our Elegon business in the second quarter of 2009 and the USD 0.02 gain from the disposal of a manufacturing subsidiary in 2008. Without these one time gains, EPS would be flat year over year.

As always, this is my view in a snapshot. It is intended to give you a running start into your research. Now, you have to do your own due diligence to make sure the valuation is not impaired by other factors including balance sheet items, lawsuits or any other negative events.

If you have any comments, I’d love to see them below.
