HONG KONG, Aug. 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bonso Electronics International, Inc. (NASDAQ: BNSO), a designer and manufacturer of sensor based products, reported its financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019.
The Company reported a net loss of $0.46 million or $0.10 basic and diluted loss per share for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019. The Company has filed its Annual Report on Form 20-F, which includes its audited financial statements for its fiscal year ended March 31, 2019, with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). The Company’s Annual Report is available on the SEC's website at http://www.sec.gov/.
Andrew So, the Chief Executive Officer of Bonso, stated, "Our core business of producing electronic products continues to be challenging, with net revenue of the Company decreasing by 13% from $11.5 million for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, to $10.0 million for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2019. We remain cautiously optimistic that business will improve in the future -- supported by ongoing pro-active strategic initiatives and new product developments. However, the demand for our electronic products may remain low for some time due to an escalating trade war between the United States and China, and we will continue to monitor the trade tension and adjust our strategy if necessary.”
Mr. So further commented, “Our company’s balance sheet remains strong, despite the losses. Total cash and total current assets at March 31, 2019 were $7.5 million and $10.4 million, respectively, with working capital of $6.2 million and a current ratio of 2.5:1.”
