SHOUGUANG, China, Dec. 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gulf Resources, Inc. (Nasdaq:GURE) ("Gulf Resources" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of bromine, crude salt and specialty chemical products in China, today provided investors with earnings guidance for the 4th quarter 2021.
Based on the best assessments at the time, the Company expects its fourth quarter operating revenue of between $18.0 million and $19.0 million. The Company’s fourth quarter net income is expected of between $9.5 million and $10.0 million.
These estimates do not include possible interruption from any winter closing required by the government, because to date, we have not received any notifications. They also do not include unexpected nonrecurring and non-operational factors, any impairments and write-offs which our auditors may recommend. For example, there might be write-down or write-off of the costs of our old chemical factories or some wells and aqueducts we will no longer use.
“We are very pleased with the direction of our current operations,” stated Mr. Liu Xiaobin, the CEO of Gulf Resources. “We expect to see an improvement in operating revenues and net income in this quarter and for this fiscal year,” Mr. Liu continued.
“The company will report back to investors if or when we learn about potential winter closings,” Mr. Liu concluded.
