China Pharma Holdings, Inc. Announces First Quarter 2008 Financial Results

-- Quarterly Revenues Increase 62% to $11.7 million -- Quarterly Net Income Increases 76.5% to $4.2 million with EPS of $0.11

NEW YORK and HAIKOU, Hainan, China, May 2 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Pharma Holdings, Inc. ("China Pharma") (OTC Bulletin Board: CPHI) which develops, manufactures, and markets generic and branded bio-pharmaceutical products in China, today announced its financial results for the first quarter of 2008.

First Quarter 2008 Highlights

-- Revenue increased 62%, to $11.7 million versus Q1 2007.

-- Net income was $4.2 million, up 76.5% versus Q1 2007.

-- Our existing products continue to generate strong sales during the

first quarter of 2008. Sales of Pusen OK have increased by $1 million,

Buflomedil Hydrochloride increased 198%, Gastrodin increased 70%, and

Cefaclor has increased 64% versus Q1 2007.

-- EPS was $0.11, up 57.1% versus Q1 2007.

Revenues for the first quarter of 2008 increased approximately 62% to $11.7 million, from $7.2 million in the first quarter of 2007. The significant increase in revenues was due to expanded production of the China Pharma's product portfolio supported by enhanced marketing efforts. The Company believes that this extraordinary growth should provide investors with confidence in China Pharma's ability to execute on their strategic marketing plan going forward. Therefore, the Company is reiterating that its 2008 full- year revenue growth is expected to exceed 40%.

Gross profit grew 76% to $5.8 million from $3.3 million in the first quarter of 2007. Gross margins were 49.6% compared to 45.6% recorded during the first quarter of 2008 and 2007 respectively. The growth of gross profit and the improved margins were primarily due to the substantial increase in revenues and the decrease in overall production expenses in the first quarter of 2008.

Operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2008 decreased 20.7% to $1.2 million compared to the same period in 2007. Selling expenses for the period increased to approximately $0.34 million from 0.15 million in the first quarter of 2007, which is due to the Company's investment in overall marketing. General and administrative expenses were $0.82 million in the three months ended March 31, 2008, a decrease of $0.49 million, or 37.5% compared to the first quarter of 2007, with the improvement emanating from the collection of bad debt reserves written-off in 2007, which reinforces China Pharma's ability to collect customer receivables

Operating income for the first quarter of 2008 totalled $4.7 million, a 152.2% increase, compared to $1.8 million for the same period in 2007. Net income was $4.2 million, representing an increase of 76.5% from $2.4 million reported in the same year ago period. Fully diluted earnings per share were $0.11, a 57.1% increase from $0.07 in the first quarter of 2007.

"We are pleased to report another quarter of strong revenue and net income growth. The success of our increased marketing efforts and diversified portfolio focusing on therapeutics targeting high mortality and high incidence diseases enabled us to achieve a 62% increase in revenues for the first quarter of 2008," commented Ms. Zhilin Li, President and CEO of China Pharma, "Our ability to prudently manage expenses while collecting on 2007 bad debt reserves contributed to the decrease in operating expenses and resulted in a higher operating margin. We anticipate this trend will continue during 2008 as we aim to maintain or improve margins and profitability going forward."

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Discussion

The Company had Stockholders' equity of $45.7 million, representing a book value of approximately $1.23 per diluted share as of March 31, 2008. With the significant increase in revenues, trade accounts receivable grew approximately 33.6%. The Company's outstanding receivables over 12 months old decreased from 19.3% of total A/R at March 31, 2007, to 7.9% at March 31, 2008. Net cash flow from operating activities was $1.5 million in the three months ended March 31, 2008, compared to negative $2.2 million during the same time in the prior year. The improvement in operating cash flow was primarily due to the increase of net income and collection of older trade accounts receivables.

Ms. Li concluded, "In the first quarter of 2008, our acceleration in organic growth from our existing core products and new products launched after 2006 demonstrates the success of our dual growth strategy. China Pharma continues to focus on developing and marketing improved generic products for high incidence and high mortality diseases particular to the China market. With the rapidly growing economy and the Chinese Government's commitment to expand its rural cooperative medical system (CMS) by spending $1.3 billion to increase coverage from 51% to 100% in rural areas, we are well positioned in the Chinese pharmaceutical industry to continue to grow our revenue and net income throughout 2008 and beyond."
