Second Quarter 2008 Results

Revenues for the second quarter of 2008 were $11.9 million, up 35.1% compared to $8.8 million for the same period of 2007. The increase in revenues is primarily attributable to a general increase in prices of plasma based products together with foreign exchange translation benefits. During the second quarter, plasma based products experienced a price increase of approximately 51.2%, weighted average, period to period, which was offset by a decrease in the sales volume by four of the Company's products, including human albumin. The decrease in sales volume is due primarily to the Company stockpiling inventory to meet the expected demand for its products during its month-long maintenance shut-down that commenced in late July.

Gross profit was up 36.4% to $8.3 million, while the gross margin was 69.5% for the second quarter of 2008, compared with approximately $6.1 million and 68.8% in the second quarter of 2007, respectively. The 0.7% increase in gross margin was mainly due to the increased sales of higher margin products.

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2008 were $3.3 million, or 27.8% of revenue, up 221.2% from the same period in 2007. Selling expenses increased 149.2% to $0.51 million. The increase in selling expense is primarily due to the increase in compensation for sales personnel as the company restructured its employee compensation companywide. General and administrative ("G&A") expenses were $1.3 million or 10.6% of revenue, an increase of 67.3% from the same period last year. The increase in G&A is mainly due to the increase in personnel cost, auditing, and legal fees and costs associated with increased investor relation activities. A non-cash employee compensation expense of $1.3 million was created by the Company's adoption of the 2008 Equity Incentive Plan on May 2008. Research and development expenses increased 290.1% to $0.28 million, or 2.3% of revenues, compared to 0.8% of revenues in the same period last year. The dollar and percentage increase was primarily due to the increase in research activities and clinical trials of the Company's new products.

As a result of the increase in operating expenses, income from operations decreased 1.5% to $5.0 million during the second quarter of 2008, representing an operating margin of 41.7%, as compared to $5.0 million and 57.1% in the same period 2007.

Provision for income taxes increased 150.2% year over year to $2.1 million. The Company provisioned its income tax for the second quarter of 2008 at the new PRC corporate income tax rate of 25%, as compared with the 15% preferential tax rate during the fiscal year 2007. The Company is in the process of applying for status as a new or high technology company in order to qualify for the favorable tax rate of 15%.

Net income for the second quarter of 2008 decreased 40.9% year over year, to $2.0 million or $0.09 per fully diluted share. Net margin during the period was 17.1%, compared to 39.0% in the same quarter last year. The decrease in net income was materially impacted by a one-time non-cash employee compensation recognized pursuant to SFAS 123(R), and by the negative effect of China's newly-implemented Unified Corporate Income Tax Law on the Company's enterprise income tax.

Non-GAAP net income in the second quarter of 2008 was $3.3 million or $0.15 per fully diluted share, a 4.2% decrease from non-GAAP net income of $3.4 million, or $0.16 per fully diluted share in the second quarter of 2007.*
* Excludes Stock Based Compensation ("SBC"). See Table 1 for a

reconciliation of Net Income and EPS to exclude SBC.

Six Months Results

For the first six months of 2008, total revenue was $19.8 million, up 19.8% from the first six months of 2007. Gross profit for the first six months of 2008 was $14.2 million, up 35.2% from $10.5 million in the comparable period a year ago. Gross margin was 71.7% compared to 63.6% for the first six month of 2008 and 2007, respectively. Income from operations for the period was $8.6 million, up 9.4% from $7.8 million in the first six months of 2007. Net income for the first six months of 2008 was $4.3 million, down 19.5% from $5.3 million in the first six months of 2007. Fully diluted earnings per share were $0.20 for the first six months of 2008 compared to $0.25 in the first six months of 2007. The six-month net income was impacted by non cash employee compensation and the newly-implemented PRC enterprise income tax law.

Financial Condition

As of June 30, 2008, the Company had $8.8 million in cash, approximately $14.3 million in working capital and a current ratio of 2.5. Shareholder's equity at the end of the second quarter of 2008 stood at $29.8 million compared to $22.4 million at the end of 2007.

Recent Developments

(1) The Company began operation of its newly constructed plasma collection station in Qi He County, Shandong Province.

(2) The Company was honored with the Advanced Technology Certification for Foreign-Funded Enterprises.

(3) On July 24, 2008, the Board of Directors of the Company appointed Mr. Sean Shao, Dr. Jie Gan, and Dr. Tong-Jun Lin to serve on the Board as "independent directors" of the Company (the "Independent Directors"), as that term is defined by Rule 4200(a)(15) of the Marketplace Rules of The Nasdaq Stock Market, Inc. On the same date, the Board also established the Audit Committee, with all three Independent Directors as the members, and adopted the Audit Committee Charter. Mr. Sean Shao was appointed as the Chair of the Audit Committee.

(4) The Company began annual maintenance of its production facilities on July 25, 2008. The maintenance period will last for one month. During the required maintenance period, the Company will conduct any required major maintenance of its production equipment to ensure the efficiency and safety of subsequent production. The Company will also take advantage of the maintenance period to train its staff, and allow them to take proper vacation time as required by Chinese labor laws. The Company has sufficient product inventories on hand to meet market demand during the maintenance period. In addition, operation of the Company's plasma collection stations will continue as usual to ensure that the manufacturing facilities can resume their normal operations at the end of the maintenance period.

(5) On August 7, 2008, the Board of Directors of the Company established a Governance and Nominating Committee and a Compensation Committee and appointed each of the Company's Independent Directors to each committee. Dr. Lin was appointed to serve as the Chair of the Governance and Nominating Committee and Dr. Gan was appointed to serve as the Chair of the Compensation Committee.

Business Outlook

For the most recent quarter, the Company received SFDA approval in a variety of plasma-based products including the approval to supply Cryoprecipitate to Green Cross China for the use in the production of Human Coagulation Factor VIII, an effort that leads the Company to focus on research and development of Human Coagulation Factor VIII. The Company also received approval to commence clinical trial of its new Human Prothrombin Complex for the production and sale of human albumin 12.5g/vial 925%, 50ml). The Company is currently one of the few producers offering the widest range of Human Albumin products available in the Chinese market. Management believes that these approvals are a reflection of the Company's R&D efforts to upgrade its product portfolio.

Realizing that the supply of human plasma is one of the keys to success in the industry, the Company sought and obtained approval to relocate its Fang Cheng plasma collection station to Pu Bei County, Guangxi Province, in an effort to increase collection volumes. The Company also began operations at its newly constructed Qi He station in July, which is expected to greatly expand the Company's plasma supply. The station has the capacity to collect human plasma from 1,000 donors daily, the equivalent of 100 metric tons of plasma supply annually.

The Company began the annual maintenance of its production facilities on July 25, 2008. The maintenance period is expected to last for one month, during which production at the Company's manufacturing facilities will be suspended. Annual maintenance allows the Company to conduct any required major maintenance of its production facilities and equipment to ensure the efficiency and safety of subsequent production. The Company has sufficient product inventories on hand to meet customer demands during the maintenance period. In addition, operation of the Company's plasma collection stations will continue as usual to ensure that the manufacturing facilities can resume their normal operations at the end of the maintenance period.

Commencing July 1, 2008, the PRC government imposed a new measure setting the quarantine period for blood plasma used as materials for blood products. This new measure required all blood plasma used to make blood products to be placed in quarantine for a 90-day period, after which time the donors of such plasma will be required to take a second screening test before the plasma can be put into production. In preparation for this new measure, the Company stocked its plasma inventory during the second quarter and is expected to have sufficient supplies when its production facilities reopen in late August 2008. In addition, during the second quarter, the Company increased its inventory of finished goods in order to meet the anticipated needs of its customers during the third quarter of 2008.

The foregoing measure as well as the continued restriction on the importation of foreign plasma based products have placed pressure on the already tightened supply of plasma available for production. In addition, the overall effect of these and other regulations has been to reduce competition and increase the barriers to entry. In order to maintain its favorable position in the industry, the Company is focusing on its research and development efforts on securing plasma supply and on the development and production of new high quality plasma-based products.

"We are pleased with our operational results given the government's restriction on both the supply of human plasma and the slow approval process of the plasma-based products for sale earlier in the year," remarked Mr. Zhao. "Now that the government approval process for plasma based finished goods has returned to more normal levels, we are optimistic about our outlook for the remainder of the year. We have made great efforts to secure raw material inventories and finished products in order to better serve our customers."
