Revenues

Total revenues decreased by 13.0% to $25.29 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 mainly due to decreasing installation revenues. Revenue from installation service was $17.30 million for the year ended December 31, 2018, representing a 27% decrease from last year. Due to market competition, the Company had 6 major installation projects in fiscal 2018, comparing to 12 major installation projects in fiscal 2017 although the average individual contract amount increased from $2.0 million in fiscal 2017 to $2.6 million in fiscal 2018. Revenues from fluid equipment sales increased by 47% to $7.99 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 due to increasing valve demands.

Cost of revenues and gross profit

Total cost of revenues decreased by $1.04 million to $17.71 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018, mainly due to decrease in the cost of installation service in fiscal 2018. For fiscal 2018, cost of installation service was $10.94 million representing a decrease of $3.3 million from 2017 due to lower installation service revenue, offset by an increase of $2.29 million in cost of fluid equipment sales.

Overall gross profit decreased by 27% or $2.89 million to $7.58 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018 from $10.44 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. is the decrease was primarily due to gross profit from installation sales decreasing 33% in fiscal 2018 as compared to fiscal 2017.

Overall gross profit margin for fiscal 2018 was 30%, decreased from 36% in fiscal 2017. The gross profit margins for both of the Company's installation service and fluid equipment sales decreased by 3% from fiscal 2017.

Operating expenses

Total operating expenses increased by $6.3 million, or 96.6%, to $12.9 million for the twelve months ended December 31, 2018. The significant increase in operating expense was primarily due to $7.7 million increase in bad debt provision, which was offset by a decrease of $0.8 million in selling expense and a $0.4 million decrease in general and administrative expenses.

For fiscal 2018, the Company's general and administrative expenses were $3.30 million, representing an approximate decrease of $0.4 million compared to fiscal 2017. The decrease in general and administrative expenses was mainly due to the Company's lesser professional fees in fiscal 2018.

For fiscal 2018, the Company's research and development ("R&D") expenses were $0.36 million, representing a decrease of $0.15 million from fiscal 2017. The decrease in R&D expense was due to less R&D projects and devices in fiscal year 2018.

For fiscal 2018, the Company's selling expenses were $1.34 million, representing a 39% decrease from fiscal 2017. The decrease was mainly due to less revenue in fiscal 2018.

Operating (loss) income

Operating loss was $5.3 million for twelve months ended December 31, 2018, representing a decrease of 237% from operating income of $4.07 million in fiscal 2017, which was mainly due to less revenue and significant increase in operating expense during fiscal 2018.
