The Company reported a net income of $1.77 million or $0.36 basic earnings per share (or $0.34 diluted earnings per share) for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021. The Company has filed its Annual Report on Form 20-F, which includes its audited financial statements for its fiscal year ended March 31, 2021, with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”).

Andrew So, the Chief Executive Officer of Bonso, stated, “Net revenue of the Company increased by 19% from $13.1 million for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2020, to $15.6 million for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2021. Sales from pet electronic products were the main reason for our growth, and we will continue to invest and develop new models of pet electronic products and electronic scales. We are aware of the lingering impact from the COVID-19 pandemic and the trade tension between the United States and China. As a result, we are focusing our efforts on cost reduction and new product development in order to remain competitive.”
Mr. So also said, “Although the approval process for the redevelopment of our Shenzhen factory site has been temporarily suspended, we are moving forward as best we can and our development partner, Fangda, anticipates that they will complete the approval process for redevelopment in 2022. Following approval, the redevelopment of the Shenzhen factory site will begin. In the meantime, we are in the process of constructing another building on our Xinxing property with the intent of increasing our rental income.” Mr. So further commented, “Our Company’s balance sheet remains strong. We had total cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2021 of $10.1 million with positive working capital of $8.0 million and a current ratio of 2.5:1.”
