2013 revenue increases 17% to $39.7 million compared to revenue of $33.9 million recorded in 2012
SHANTOU, China, May 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Big Tree Group, Inc. (OTCQB: BIGG), a company that serves as a "one stop shop" for the sourcing, distribution and specialty manufacturing of toys and related products, announced today our financial results for the full year of 2013 ended December 31, 2013.
For the full year of 2013, total revenues reached $39.7 million, an increase of 17% compared to total revenues of $33.9 million recorded in 2012.

Our Brunei subsidiary, Big Tree International Co., Ltd., continued to employ the strategy of building our customer base for export sales of toys which resulted in our customer base increasing from 259 customers in 2012 to 338 customers in 2013. Overall gross margins improved slightly to 10.6% in 2013 compared to 10.4% in 2012. Operating expenses to support our business growth increased to $2.6 million in 2013, up from $1.9 million in 2012 due to increased general and administrative expenses and to a lesser extent, increased rent associated with the addition of our second showroom. For the full year of 2013 we recorded net income of $0.5 million or $0.05 per diluted share on 11.2 million weighted average shares outstanding as compared to net income of $0.8 million or $0.08 per diluted share as restated on 10.1 million weighted average shares outstanding in 2012.
At December 31, 2013, total assets were $11.4 million and shareholder equity was $0.7 million. At December 31, 2012, total assets were $8.7 million and shareholder equity was $1.4 million as restated. Working capital was $0.5 million at December 31, 2013 compared to $1.2 million at December 31, 2012 as restated.
Commenting on our results for the full year of 2013, Mr. Wei Lin, Chairman and CEO of Big Tree Group, stated, "We are pleased with our performance in 2013 as our efforts to increase our export toy sales through increasing our customer base continued to gain momentum.
