Gulf Resources Announces Its Flood Prevention Plan

Fri, November 17, 2023 at 5:30 AM PST

SHOUGUANG, China, Nov. 17, 2023 (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 announced that it has recently initiated its preventive measures for safeguarding its bromine facilities.

In 2018, Shouguang City experienced the devastating impact of Typhoon Winbiya, regarded as one of the most destructive typhoons in history, resulting in the region receiving 14.9 inches of rainfall. The overflow of three major reservoirs along the Mihe River led to extensive flooding in farmlands, residential zones, and industrial factories. All of the Company’s bromine factories, crude salt pans, and mining areas were seriously impacted. The Company incurred substantial expenses, amounting more than $40 millions of dollars, including write-offs , for road repairs, equipment replacement, salt pan reconstruction, and the re-drilling of flooded wells.

A year later, Typhoon Lekima struck Shouguang City, surpassing the destructive force of its predecessor. Once again, the Company had to spend more than $6 millions of dollars to rectify the aftermath, involving road repairs, equipment replacement, salt pan reconstruction, and the re-drilling of affected wells.

To mitigate similar damages in the future, the Company has commenced a flood prevention initiative. Our strategy involves the renovation of the channels of four major rivers within our mining area, encompassing the tributary of the Mihe River. The aim is to prevent flooding that could harm the wells, aqueducts and crude salt pans at our plant.

The projected expenditure for this initiative amounts to $50,497,652. As of the third quarter, ending on September 30, 2023, we disbursed $15,149,296 for the initial phase of this project.

Apart from reducing risk to surrounding regions, we anticipate three notable advantages from this flood prevention plan. It is expected to:

enhance the probability of obtaining approval to reopen factories #2 and #10;

enable the drilling of additional wells across our five operating factories, and

mitigate the risks and associated expenses related to future storms-induced flooding.

Given our company’s robust financial position and substantial cash resources, we believe the flood prevention program will yield favorable returns over the long-term.

LETTER FROM MR. LIU

September 4, 2023


Dear Shareholders and Associates,


In 2016, I thought one day Gulf could be a $30-$50 stock. We had ten bromine-crude salt factories, two chemical factories, had discovered natural gas and bromine in Sichuan, and had the capital to grow. At the time, I did not know the government would close our factories to improve the environment, COVID would occur, a typhoon would flood our facilities, or the government would increase financial controls on currency.


Despite these issues, in 2021, the management team and I made the decision to pay back partial or all of approximately 11 ½ years of compensation a in Gulf and get. Currently, I am working with no cash but only shares as compensation. At the time, the stock was much higher than it is now, making our decision look wrong. However, we were- and are- making a long-term bet that Gulf can still be a $30-$50 stock.


Despite the long closure of our factories and our expensive rebuilding, we currently have approximately $115 million or $11.05 per share in cash, and almost no debt. We have not wavered in our belief that our company will generate substantial earnings. The following should not be taken as our projections. They are the views that convinced me to repay almost 11 ½ years of salary and work for no compensation.


In 2022, our bromine and crude salt business had earnings of approximately $14.2 million, with factory #8 only opening late in the year. Despite the recent price decline, world-wide supplies of bromine are limited. Some former factories, including three of our own, were permanently closed. Demand should strengthen and prices should increase, especially as new uses, like zinc/bromine batteries, materialize. If we can get open our rest two closed factories, bromine and crude salt may earn $30-$40 million a year over time.


Our Yuxin chemical factory expect to be modern. We would not spend more than $60 million if we did not believe that we could earn a strong return. We have temporarily postponed the delivery of the final equipment so we can customize this equipment to the best market opportunities. Chemicals earned $33 million in 2015. While our new factory will be smaller, with our modern equipment and high margin products, we believe former profit levels may be attainable.


We also exptect try to developing an export business in chemicals to enable us to gain the financial flexibility to consider to buy back stock or pay dividends. We are also exploring the possible opportunities for zinc-bromine batteries.


In Sichuan, we continue to wait for the government’s environmental plan. Our current focus is to create a Joint Venture with the Daying county government. While we still do not know if our proposed Joint Venture in Sichuan will be approved, the potential could be greater than our original plan. If we can partner with the local government, we would expect to be able to drill more wells for both bromine and brine.. Since Petro-China has made the largest natural gas discovery in Chinese history in Daying, we think this could be a profitable endeavor. In addition, Daying has much higher concentrations of bromine than does Shandong Province.


If we may earn $30-$40 million from bromine and crude salt, $20-$30 million from chemicals, and $10-$20 million from natural gas, our operating earnings may be $60-$90 million, or $4.00-$6.00 a share after tax and corporate overhead.


Events could change these numbers. The Chinese economy could remain stay weak. We might not be able to open factories #2 and #10. Our attempts to build an export business in chemicals could fail, and the JV in Sichuan could fail to be established. However, the bet that our management and I are making is not that Gulf Resources can be a $4-$6 stock. Our bet is that we can generate high returns and may consider to use our free cash flow to enhance shareholder value. If we can accomplish these goals, our massive bets on the future of the company will have proven right.

Gulf Resources Updates Investors on Revenue and Earnings Projections from Bromine and Crude Salt Segments for the 3rd quarter and the full year of 2022
August 30 2022 - 08:30AM
GlobeNewswire Inc.

Gulf Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ:GURE) ("Gulf Resources" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of bromine, crude salt and specialty chemical products in China today is updating investors as to its estimates for revenues and profits for the 3rd quarter and the full year of 2022 for its Bromine and Crude Salt Segments only based on Non-Generally Accepted Accounting Principle (Non-GAAP). The Company is also providing a preliminary overview of 2023 for these two segments.
Before reviewing the projections, the Company advises investors that these estimates were based on its assumptions at this time, also do not include unexpected nonrecurring and non-operational factors, any impairments and write-offs which our auditors may recommend. Market conditions impacting the price and the demand for our products can change at any time. The Chinese economy has softened, which could impact demand and pricing.

COVID continues to be a serious problem in China. The Company has no visibility as to when this epidemic will abate. If COVID spreads further, the Chinese government could increase its inspections of our facilities, which also could impact our production.

In addition, China has been impacted by serious heatwaves and one of the worst droughts in a century. The drought has caused limited hydropower and the increased demand has caused the cutback in electricity and forced the closing of factories in certain parts of the country. These closures could also impact demand and pricing.

The government in Shandong Province could force us to close our operating factories, as it did last winter. In 2023, Chinese New Year falls on January 22, 2023,10 days earlier than it fell in 2022 and 21 days earlier than it fell in 2021. The seasonal closings are (not as) usually about 58 days from the end of Chinese New Year.

While the Company does not know if the government intends to have a seasonal closing in 2022-3, its projections for the 4th quarter assume that the government will force our facilities to close in early to mid December 2022. Should these closings occur, 4th quarter 2022 sales and earnings may be impacted negatively, while first quarter 2023 earnings may be impacted positively.

Further, because our crude salt business was recently split off from our bromine business, the results of these two segments in our financial statements will not be strictly comparable. Bromine is now incurring a larger share of operating costs, which have lowered its profits and raised those of crude salt in comparison with the reported results in 2021 and the first quarter of 2022.

The projections below are for the bromine and crude salt segments only in 2022. They include allocations of corporate cost but do not include public company costs, and do not include the losses from chemicals and natural gas or income taxes. All projections for the third and fourth quarters assume a currency Exchange Rate ( RMB/US$=6.8065).

The estimates also do not assume any stock grants for management in 2022. It is possible there will be some grants in 2022. If grants are awarded, they will be lower than those in 2021.

Projections for Bromine and Crude Salt Segments

Third Quarter Ending 9/30/2022
For the third quarter ending 9/30/2022, the bromine and crude salt segments are projected to generate revenues of approximately $20.0 million to $21.8 million, an increase of approximately 12.4% to 22.5% from that of the previous year. Profit before income tax is expected to be approximately $ 9.0 million to $10.3 million, an increase of approximately 20.0% to 37.3% from that in the previous year.

Q3 2022($Million) Q3 2021($ Million) % of change
Revenue 20.0-21.8 17.8 12.4%-22.5%
Profit Before income Tax 9.0-10.3 7.5 20.0%-37.3%
Full Year Ending 12/31/2022
For the full year ending 12/31/2022, the bromine and crude salt segments are projected to generate revenues of approximately $62.0 million to $63.7 million, an increase of approximately 12.7% to 15.8% from that of the previous year. The Company estimates that there will be fewer days of operation in the fourth quarter 2022 as compared to last year due to the earlier Chinese New Year. In addition, because of the current softness in the Chinese economy and for purposes of conservatism, the Company is assuming the selling pricing in the fourth quarter of 2022 will be below the fourth quarter of 2021. Profit before income tax is projected to be approximately $20.0 million to $21.5 million, an increase of 63.9% to 76.2% from that in the previous year.

2022($Million) 2021($Million) % of change
Revenue 62.0-63.7 55.0 12.7%-15.8%
Profit Before income Tax 20.0-21.5 12.2 63.9-76.2%
2023 and Beyond

Based on information currently at hand, revenues and earnings in 2023 for bromine and crude salt segments are projected to increase from the estimates in 2022.

The Company currently believes that 2023 will benefit from:

The production of factory #8, which may add approximately by 20% to annual production capacity of operating factories at this time.
More days of additional production. With Chinese New Year coming earlier in 2023 (Feb. 01, 2022 vs. Jan 22, 2023, there will be more production days in the first quarter, and with Chinese New Year coming later in 2024 (Jan, 24, 2023 vs. Feb. 10, 2024) there should be more production days in the 4th quarter.
Fewer closings for inspections as if COVID is expected to abate somewhat.
Continued strength in pricing, as the closure of many factories has lowered supply, while the decline of the RMB versus the USD and other currencies has made imports more expensive.
The Company also believes it may get permission to open another factory in 2023, but this factory is not included in these projections.

6-Year Plan

The Company is currently reviewing the projections for the 6-year plan for bromine and crude salt on June 14,2022. At the present time, the Company expects revenues and profits may continue to increase on an annual basis. The capital investments made in our bromine operation should help us maintain or even slightly increase our utilization. Certain of our closed factories could be allowed to resume operations by the government. However, given the uncertainties related to COVID -19 and the economy of China, the Company is continuing the review and may revise the 6-Year Plan and will provide them to investors as the situation become clearer.

Gulf Resources Announces Results for the Second Quarter and Six Months Ended June 30, 2022
Gulf Resources, Inc.
Mon, August 15, 2022 at 1:35 PM

SHOUGUANG, China, Aug. 15, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gulf Resources, Inc. (Nasdaq: GURE) ("Gulf Resources", “we,” or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of bromine, crude salt and specialty chemical products in China, today announced financial results for the six and three months ended June 30, 2022

Gulf Resources is pleased to report a second quarter with revenues up 41% and earnings per share of $0.37 despite the interruptions in production caused by COVID-19 circumstances, the overall weakness in the Chinese economy, the continuing fact that closures of bromine and crude salt factories No.2, No.8, and No.10 and the delay in opening the new chemical factory.

Bromine pricing has continued to be strong, the average selling price in the quarter was $7,740. As COVID abates and the Chinese economy begins to recover, the Company believes demand and pricing will continue to increase. Given the economics of our bromine business, this augers well for future profits. With the likelihood of one or more of our closed facilities maybe open and the future completion of our chemical factory, our company expects we will produce strong results in the remainder of 2022 and in future years.

Financial Highlights
For the three-month period ending June 30,2022

Revenues increased 41% to $15,711,714

Gross Profit increased 80% to $7,610,594

Income from operations was $5,109,163 compared to a loss of ($2,382,809)

Net income was $3,901,794 compared to a loss of ($2,703,220).

Earnings per share were $0.37 compared to a loss of $0.26.

For the six-month period ending June 30,2022

Net revenues increased 50% to $24,642,451

Gross profit increased 126% to $11,991,363

Income from operations was $5,044,076 compared to a loss of ($5,664,233)

Net income was $3,781,848 compared to a loss of ($5,205,344)

Earnings per share were $0.36 compared with a loss per share of ($0.50).

Balance Sheet

As of June 30, we had cash of $79,115,431.

Total assets were $298,613,109. Total liabilities were $23,036,454.

Shareholders’ Equity was $275,576,655.

Based on 10,471,924 shares issued and outstanding, book value for Shareholders’ Equity per share was $26.32*.

For the Three Months Ending June 30, 2022.

Bromine Segment
Bromine revenues increased 38% to $13,893,809. The primary contributor to the higher revenues was the increase in the selling price of bromine. During the quarter the average selling price was $7,740 compared to $5,556 in the same quarter of the previous year. There is always a lag in the average selling price compared to the market price as the Company fulfills orders based on when they are received.

During the quarter the Company sold 1,795 tonnes of bromine slightly below the 1,805 in the previous year. During the second quarter of 2022, in order to control COVID, the government made a series of unannounced inspections of our bromine and crude salt facilities, that caused the Company to shut and then reopen its facilities. During the second quarter of 2021, there was one full inspection. The Company believes the inspections in 2022 had a more significant impact on production than did the inspections in 2021.

The cost of revenues in bromine was $6,865,832 representing an increase of $1,312,339 from the same quarter of the previous year.

In this quarter, to comply with new government directives, the Company separated bromine and crude salt into two separate legal entities. With this separation, bromine assets increased to $172.1 million from $138.9 million, while crude salt assets shrank to $10 million from $32.8 million. This caused bromine to receive a higher allocation of expenses than in previous years.

Even with the higher allocation of costs, income from the bromine segment increased 98.5% to $5,325,541 from $2,682,233.

In the quarter, the Company spent $32,822,927mainly in bromine wells, aqueducts and the installation of high and low voltage lines for bromide Wells.

The Company continues to believe it will receive permission to open one of these factories in 2022 and perhaps try its best effort to get another in early 2023.

During the quarter, the Company incurred capital expenditures of $32,822,927 for its bromine segment, which mainly include the cost for bromine wells, aqueducts and the installation of high and low voltage lines for bromide Wells. The Company believes these expenditures may enable it to maintain or slightly increase its utilization in the bromine segment in future quarters.

On August 3,2022, Albemarle, one of the world’s largest producers of bromine stated a press release, “Tight market conditions continue to drive strong demand and favorable pricing” (https://investors.albemarle.com/news-releases/news-release-details/albemarle-reports-strong-second-quarter-sales-growth-raising). Gulf Resources believes the same conditions apply to its business in China.

Crude Salt
Crude salt revenues increased 62% to $1,817,904. There was a 10% increase in production in tonnes and a 47% increase in average selling price. The cost of net revenue decreased by 9% to $1,235,288, largely as a result of the reallocation of costs. Crude salt reported income from operations of $142,968 compared to a loss of $578,435.

Chemicals
Revenues in chemicals were $0. The net loss was ($475,201) vs. a net loss of ($741,312) in the same period of the previous year.

During the quarter, COVID restrictions as well as supply chain issues caused delays in receiving some of the previously ordered machinery and equipment including the waste water treatment and solid waste treatment equipment. The Company is working with its existing suppliers and may identify new suppliers so that it can complete construction of its factory based on the delivery.

To date, the Company has spent $45,584,344 on its new factory. It believes the total cost will approximate $69 million. The Company cannot currently project when construction will be completed and production will begin, but it does not believe the delays will impact the cost of the project or the long-term profitability. The Company will update investors as soon as the waste- water treatment and solid waste treatment equipment is delivered.

Natural Gas Segment
The natural gas segment had $0 revenues and a net loss of ($61,699) roughly equal to the loss in the previous year. Pursuant to the Opinions of the Ministry of Natural Resources on Several Issues in Promoting the Reform of Mineral Resources Management (Trial) promulgated by the Ministry of Natural Resources of PRC on January 9, 2020, which came into effect on May 1, 2020, privately owned enterprises are allowed to participate in the natural gas production. The Company plans to proceed with its applications for the natural gas and brine project approvals with related government departments until the governmental planning has been finalized.

Other Costs
Direct factory and overhead costs for closed factories were $1,927,297 vs. $1,394,717 in the same period of the previous year.

Corporate costs declined to $67,987 from $3,193,107. In the second quarter of 2021, the Company incurred $3,113,140 in charges for stock grants to management. There were no stock grants in the second quarter of 2022.

Profit & Loss
Net income was $3,901,794 compared to a loss of $2,703,220 in the same quarter of the previous year.

Net income per share was $0.37 compared to a loss of ($0.26).

Foreign Currency Translation Adjustment
For the quarter, the Company had a negative foreign translation adjustment of $16,393,444 versus a positive adjustment of $5,334,236 in the previous year. This adjustment was caused by an approximate 6.1% decline of the RMB vs. the USD. The adjustment impacts all balance sheet translations into U.S. dollars.

Six Months Ending June 30, 2022
Net revenues increased 50% to $24,642,451. Gross profits increased 126% to $11,991,363. General and administration expenses declined 60% to $2,799,590. A major factor impacting results in 2021 was the charge of $3,113,140 for stock grants. Income before taxes was $5,127,164 versus a loss of ($5,592,573). Net income was $3,781,848 vs. a loss of ($5,205,344). Earnings per share were $0.36 vs. a loss of ($0.50).

In Bromine, revenues increased 48% to $22,019,825. Net selling prices increased 39%. Costs increased 19% to $10,786,157. Income from operations increased 376% to $6,674,375 despite the higher allocation of costs as a result of separating salt from bromine. The loss from operations in crude salt was $378,953 vs. a loss of $1,588,020 in the same period of the previous year. Chemical products lost $988,483 and natural gas lost $88,438 as neither business had revenues in the six months.

Cash Flow
We generated $18,492,397 in cash flow from operations versus $7,025,775 in the previous year. We invested $33,217,987 in our bromine business mainly for bromine wells, aqueducts and the installation of high and low voltage lines for bromide Wells. The change in the value of the RMB to the USD caused a reduction in cash and cash equivalents of ($1,642,327) versus a credit of $1,912,746 in the previous year.

Balance Sheet
As of June 30,2022, we had cash of $79,115,431. Total assets were $298,613,109. Total liabilities were $23,036,454., Shareholders’ Equity was $275,576,655. Based on 10,471,924 shares issued and outstanding, book value for Shareholders’ Equity per share was $26.32* and cash per share was $7.56*.

Commentary
“We are very pleased to have reported earnings of $0.37 per share in the second quarter despite the disruptions caused by COVID-19,” Mr. Liu Xiaobin, the CEO of Gulf Resources stated.

“With our new wells and other bromine facilities, we should be able to increase production in the remainder of 2022,” Mr. Miao Naihui,, the Chief Operating Officer, added, Bromine prices continue be strong. Our average selling price in the quarter was $7,740.As COVID abates, we expect increases in demand. The combination of production and higher pricing should lead to improvements in profits from operation in the third quarter and beyond.”

“In addition,” Mr. Miao continued, “we are hopeful one factory will receive approval to reopen in the near future. Because we have already made a lot of work to the factory, we expect further capital expenditures will be mainly within the factory site.

“We are disappointed that COVID and supply chain disruptions have delayed the opening of our Chemical factory,” stated Mr. Liu, the CEO, “but once the waste water and solid waste treatment equipment is delivered, we will update our investors. Based on the market for pharmaceuticals and their by-products as well as the market for other chemicals using bromine, we believe our chemical factory will perform well.”

“We also expect,” Mr. Liu continued, “that we may be able to produce natural gas and bromine in Sichuan Province.”

“We appreciate the patience of our shareholders,” Mr. Liu concluded, “While we are not making projections, based on the current price of bromine, we the expect the remainder of the year will be profitable.”

What is a Zinc/Bromine battery?

A zinc-bromine battery is a rechargeable battery system that uses the reaction between zinc metal and bromine to produce electric current, with an electrolyte composed of an aqueous solution of zinc bromide. It is being developed as an alternative to lithium-ion batteries for stationary power applications from domestic through to grid-scale. The water-based electrolyte makes the battery system less prone to overheating and fire compared with lithium-ion battery systems.

Depreciation
As can be seen from the table below taken from the 10-K and the 10-Q for September 30, 2021. Depreciation in the fourth quarter was more than $4 million higher than the previous year’s quarter. The main contributory factor was that the depreciation for the three closed factories (#2,#8, and #10) to the fourth quarter.

Depreciation Cost
2021 2020
Full Year 2021 $20,543,425 $15,987,860
9 months $12,316,639 $11,907,702

Taxes
The second major contributing factor was the tax rate. In the first 9 months, the tax rate approximated the 25% statutory tax rate. In the fourth quarter, the Company took a charge of $2,723,189 for the offset of deferred tax assets.

Subsequent Events

On February 22, 2022, the Company announced that discussions with the government have convinced management that the electricity restrictions are being eased. Accordingly, the Company had contacted its suppliers and will have most of the remainder of the equipment produced and delivered.

2022 Outlook

Bromine & Crude Salt
The Company expects bromine prices to remain at current high levels or even increase. The Company is encouraged by the opportunity in zinc-bromine batteries for power and EVs.

The Company also expects to receive approval to open at least one and potentially more of its closed factories in 2022.

Chemicals
The Company has now ordered most of the equipment for its chemical factory. While some equipment may be delayed because of COVID issues in China, the Company believes installation should be completed near the end of the third quarter 2022. Commercial production may begin during 2023. The Company believes the delay could increase the cost of the project by about $5 million. However, it remains encouraged about the opportunity. The Company will continue to post photographs on its website showing the progress of construction.

Sichuan Project: Natural Gas and Brine:
The company is still waiting for the provincial government of Sichuan to finalize the land and resource planning for Sichuan Province. The company has no assurances on the timing of these plans. However, since the government of China has approved that privately owned enterprises are allowed to participate in the natural gas production and since there is great demand for natural gas in China, the company remains optimistic about this project.

2022 Q1
In the past several years, our facilities have been closed for a majority of the first quarter for environmental reasons and Chinese New Year. As a result, the first quarter always has a lower level of sales and profitability than other quarters. Because the price of bromine has remained high, the company expects Q1 revenues to be higher than those of the previous year. It also expects the loss to be significantly reduced. However, any estimates exclude any potential nonrecurring factors or write-offs.

“We are very encouraged about the continuing high price of bromine,” Mr. Liu Xiaobin, CEO of Gulf Resources stated. “As we noted in our press release, we are seeing new demand for bromine, such as the zinc/bromine batteries and supply remains highly constrained. At these levels, our bromine and crude salt business should be profitable. We also believe we will be able to open at least one of our factories this year.”

“Now that following the electricity restrictions are being eased,” Mr. Liu continued, “we are moving as fast as we can to finish construction and begin test and trial production in our new chemical factory. We expect this factory, which will primarily produce pharmaceutical intermediate products with higher margin. In addition, despite the delays, we remain confident that we will be able to produce natural gas and bromine in Sichuan. Natural gas pricing continues to hit record highs. Our exploration area has significant natural gas resources. This continues to be a potentially very exciting project.”

“Meanwhile,” Mr. Liu concluded, “our balance sheet remains strong and we have the capabilities of taking advantage of new opportunities as they arise.”

(*These calculations are based on the number of shares outstanding of 10,471,924 shares as of December 31, 2021)

Conference Call
Gulf Resources management will host a conference call on Wednesday, April 13, 2022 at 08:30 AM ET to discuss financial results for fourth quarter and full year 2021.

Gulf Resources Updates Investors on Impact of the World & Chinese Economy on Business Operations
October 20 2021 - 08:50AM
GlobeNewswire Inc.


Gulf Resources, Inc. (Nasdaq:GURE) ("Gulf Resources" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of bromine, crude salt and specialty chemical products in China, today updated investors on the impact of issues in the world and Chinese economy on its business operations.
Bromine prices have risen substantially throughout the world and even more substantially in China. In the world market, shipping issues have disrupted delivery. As a result, China has been unable to import its normal share of bromine.

With the shortage in supply and demand, prices of bromine have soared to the highest levels ever recorded. As illustrated by the chart below (source:sunsirs.com) bromine is currently priced at RMB 69,500 per tonne, an increase of 41% in the past few weeks and 148% higher than the end of the 3rd quarter in 2020.

Bromine Prices In China

Period Price Changes As 2021 10/16
Q2-2020 29,333 136.9%
Q3-2020 28,017 148.1%
Q4-2020 32,087 116.6%
Q1-2021 34,493 101.5%
Q2-2021 45,950 51.3%
Q3-2021 49,301 41.0%
2021/10/16 69,500

Since the raw material price increases are lower than the bromine price increase, we believe this type of pricing should be good for our Fourth Quarter 2021 profitability.

The Company has no idea how long the current shortages will last, however, we will keep shareholders informed of any changes we have seen.

The world and Chinese economies have been impacted by supply chain issues in many industries including the energy industry. Shipping shortages have disrupted delivery of many products throughout the world. China has also been impacted by shortages of energy. For example, in some regions of China, the government have restricted electrical usage, including Shouguang City. And some businesses under construction have been restricted from electrical usage in Shouguang City.

The supply chain issues as well as the electric restrictions have delayed the production and delivery of some equipment to the Company‘s new chemical factory. In addition, the Company’s new chemical factory has also been restricted from the electrical usage. This means the installation, timing of testing and beginning trial production at the chemical factory will be delayed. At this time, the Company is not in a position to determine the extent of the delays, but it will keep shareholders advised.

Website
As some investors may have noticed, our website has been down for the past week. Our company is committed to improving investor relations. As a result, we are in the process of introducing a rebuilt website. The transition from the old website to the new website will require approximately one more week. We look forward to sharing our new website with investors.

Gulf Resources Announces Receipt of Final Approval for Construction of its Shouguang Yuxin Chemical Factory
GlobeNewswire GlobeNewswire•May 27, 2020
SHOUGUANG, China, May 27, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gulf Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ:GURE) ("Gulf Resources" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of bromine, crude salt, specialty chemical products, and natural gas in China today announced it received final approval for the construction of its new Shouguang Yuxin Chemical factory on May 25,2020 due to the COVID-19 in China and the Company commenced the construction at Bohai Marine Fine Chemical Industry Park, Shouguang City on May 26, 2020.

The Company expects that it will take approximately one year to complete the construction and additional 6 months to complete equipment installation and testing. The Company currently expects to begin trial production at the new factory at the beginning of 2022.

Shouguang Yuxin Chemical plans to focus more on producing higher margin, bromine-based pharmaceutical intermediate products and intermediates for disinfection product.

Bromine products play a very positive role in protecting and treating diseases, such as the COVID-19. These products are used for both sterilization and treatment.

The main disinfection products include Dibromohyne disinfectant and Bromochlorohyne disinfectant.

The main drugs used in the treatment of diseases in China include bromhexine, ambroxol, cotrimoxazole and cephalosporins.

In addition, since bromine ions have the ability to decrease the sensitivity of the central nervous system, they are used for ingredients in sedatives, anti-epileptics, and tranquilizers. They are also used in treatments of heart problems, thyroid hyperactivity, pneumonia, and cocaine addiction, among others.

The Company believes that the use of bromine in producing intermediates for disinfection product and bromine-based pharmaceutical intermediate products will offer it significant opportunities to build this high margin business.

Maybe you need to dig into this a little further. Larger companies have much more chance of being influenced by government, and that’s what this bill is aimed at.

No not going to happen, I think Bill is really going after larger cap Chinese companies. Personally I don’t see this happening, will probably be challenged on a legal front.

"...according to Petro china's exploration, the company has reason to believe that its wells are located in this natural gas belt.

Gulf believes this discovery could have a material positive impact on the company for a number of reasons."
