BEIJING May 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Hollysys Automation Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: HOLI) ("Hollysys" or the "Company"), a leading provider of automation and control technologies and applications in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the fiscal year 2016 third quarter ended on March 31, 2016 (see attached tables). The management of Hollysys, stated:

"For industrial automation business, we have insisted in executing our strategy to review the potential needs of the market in upgrading and reforming projects to mitigate the revenue which is continuously declining from new constructions in the current situation. Industries like petro-chemical, metallurgy and building materials still perform weak. However, as supplement, power industry is maintaining stable, we have signed several new DCS contracts in coal fire power, especially in high levels, the supercritical coal fire generating units, such as Jiujiang Shenhua 2X1052MW, Guohua Ningdong 2X660MW and Xinjiang TBEA 2X660MW power units. Nuclear side, we are providing DCS for Hongyanhe #5 and #6 units. In factory automation, we will continue to expand our sales force and allocate more resources to this area, and to make an effort raise our uniquely customized turnkey solutions. As mentioned above, even though industrial automation revenue is declining, we will always try our best to minimize the impact, including adjusting internally to better cope with external environment and to keep sustainable long-term healthy development.

In high-speed railway, as China is continuously investing a certain scale on supporting high-speed railway sector for the next five years, we are still benefit from the policy of 13th five-year-plan. As new products and technologies contribute in the next, we have confident that the high-speed railway's performance will be remaining stable.

For subway business, we won the new biddings for Chengdu Line 10 and Wuhan Subway Line 8 SCADA contracts. Meanwhile, the SCADA for Beijing Subway Line 14 Middle Section and Beijing Changping Subway Phrase II are both in operating stage, we gained consistent favorable reputation by the customers. This is encouraging us for seeking opportunities to work with more local transportation bureaus from the first tiers cities down. We will continue to deliver quality works and work closely with subway authorities in the future to build up our SCADA and subway signaling businesses.

In the mechanical and electrical solution segment, Concord and Bond have mainly focused in further development of Southeast Asia and Middle East markets. Even they are facing difficulties such as worsen market competitive environment, the lack of new-built projects and projects delay, rising cost and seasonal lumpiness, they are persevering in hard working. For this quarter revenue and backlog are both increased compared to same quarter last year. For long-term, we think the market still have much potential demand, and we will strengthen internal control and adjustment to keep M&E development in the future.

Lastly, for extending international business, we are in the process of setting up local service centers in abroad. In India, we won the bidding to provide DCS and SIS to Lanco Solar Power Polycrystalline Silicon Project. In Southeast Asia region, we won the bidding to provide DCS and DEH for Indonesia Qingshan 2X350MW Coal-fire Power Units. Through accumulating track record in the targeting area, we are enhancing our brand name recognition overseas. With our proprietary technologies and products, well industry expertise and customized solution, we will continue to create value for our shareholders."

Non-GAAP Measures

In evaluating our results, the non-GAAP measures of "Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses", "Non-GAAP net income attributable to Hollysys Automation Technologies Ltd. stockholders", "Non-GAAP basic earnings per share", and "Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share" serve as additional indicators of our operating performance and not as a replacement for other measures in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We believe these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors, as they exclude the non-cash share-based compensation expenses, which is calculated based on the number of shares or options granted and the fair value as of the grant date, amortization of acquired intangible assets, fair value adjustments of acquisition-related consideration, and fair value adjustments of a bifurcated derivative. They will not result in any cash inflows or outflows. We believe that using non-GAAP measures help our shareholders to have a better understanding of our operating results and growth prospects. In addition, given the business nature of the Company, it has been a common practice for investors to use such non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company.

The following table provides a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP measures to the non-GAAP measures for the periods indicated:
