Good morning and thank you for joining our call today. Although we experienced year over year decrease in revenue growth for the third quarter of fiscal year 2013, this decrease was principally due to the suspension of some plants. In order to curtail future losses we will continue our efforts to improve the collection of the accounts receivables and trying to increase our client base for the rest of the year.
For revenue; our revenue is primarily generated from sales of our advanced ready-mix concrete products and manufacturing services. For the three months ended March 31, 2013, we generated revenue of $7.2 million compared to $18.9 million during the same period in 2012, a decrease of $11.7 million or 61.7%. The decrease in our revenue is due primarily due to decreased revenue from our manufacturing services and concrete sales for the three months ended March 31, 2013.
Our concrete sales revenue was approximately $7.2 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, a decrease of $10.8 million or 60% from the three months ended March 31, 2012. The decrease in revenues from concrete sales was principally due to the decreased demand of concrete sales in line with slowing down of the housing market and overall economic growth.
Revenue from our manufacturing services segment was $5,616 for the three months ended March 31, 2013, a decrease of $0.85 million, or 99.3%, as compared to the three months ended March 31, 2012. Such decrease in revenue was attributable principally to the suspension of operations of certain of our portable plants during the three months ended March 31, 2013.
Gross Profit. Gross profit was $0.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, as compared to $2.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. Our gross profit for the sale of concrete was $0.6 million, or 9.0% of revenue, for the three months ended March 31, 2013, as compared to $2.6 million, or 15% of revenue, for the same period last year. The decreased gross profit margin reflects lower demand and lower prices for our concrete products in Beijing as compared to the same period last year.
Our gross loss with respect to our manufacturing services segment was $0.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, flat with $0.6 million gross loss for the same period last year.
Provision for doubtful accounts. We incurred provision for doubtful accounts of $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013, a decrease of $2.3 million, as compared to $3.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2012. An estimate of doubtful accounts is recorded when collection of the full amount is no longer probable. Known bad debts are written off against allowance for doubtful accounts when identified. The accrual ratio is 5% for accounts receivable past due less than one year, 50% for accounts receivable past due from one to two years and 100% for accounts receivable past due beyond two years.
