Second Quarter of 2008 Results (Unaudited):

Revenues for the second quarter of 2008 increased 31.6% to $11.3 million compared to $8.6 million for the same quarter in 2007. The growth in revenues was primarily due to organic growth of the existing product portfolio and increasing overall enhanced marketing efforts.

Quarterly gross profit for the second quarter of 2008 was $6 million, compared to $3.9 million for the same period last year, with gross margins of 52.8% and 45.5% respectively. The increase of gross margins was favorably impacted by the increase of revenues of our high margin products. The increase in gross margin reflected the management's clear vision of product selection and development.

Total operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2008 were $1.6 million compared to $0.53 million for the same period last year, mainly due to increased revenue and operating expenses. Selling expenses for the period increased to approximately $0.46 million from (25,931)

0.33 million in the second quarter of 2007, which is due to the Company's investment in overall marketing. General and administrative expenses were $0.45 million in the three months ended June 30, 2008, an increase of $0.16 million, or 55.2% compared to the second quarter of 2007. The increase was primarily due to public relations expenses.

Operating income for the second quarter of 2008 totaled $4.4 million, a 30.6% increase, compared to $3.4 million for the same period in 2007. Operating margins were 39.0% compared to 39.3% for the second quarter of 2008 and 2007, respectively.

Net income was $4 million, representing an increase of 21.4% from $3.3 million reported in the same period a year ago. The company had an effective tax rate of 5.5% versus 0% during the second quarter of 2008 and 2007 respectively as the new PRC Enterprise Income Tax Law took effect on January 1, 2008, imposing a unified EIT of 25% on all domestic and foreign-invested companies. China Pharma is allowed a gradual transition to the new 25% tax rate over the next five years and the Company is qualified for a 50% discount of its income tax rate. As a result, the estimated Enterprise Income Tax rate is at 9% in 2008. Earnings per diluted share were $0.10 compared to $0.09 based on 39 million and 37.2 million diluted shares outstanding, respectively. The variance in shares relates to the capital we raised which closed on May 30, 2008.

"We continued to experience strong year-over-year revenue and earning growth from our current portfolio of products combined with stable profit margins, especially during the traditional slow quarter compared to the first and fourth quarters. We believe the results validate the plan that management has been implementing to focus on therapeutics targeting high mortality and high incidence diseases which yield high gross margins. We expect the benefits of these efforts will continue into the future as well. Additionally we launched Bumetanide injection and began recording revenues in June 2008. We are optimistic that this new drug will further improve our profitability and be another growth contributor to our top-line and bottom-line numbers," Ms. Zhilin Li, President and CEO of China Pharma, commented.

Six Month Results

Revenue increased approximately 45.5% to $23 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008 as compared to $15.8 million for the same period last year. Operating expenses for the six months ended June 30, 2008 were $2.7 million compared to $2 million for the same period in 2007, an increase of 36.7%. Operating income for the six months ended June 30, 2008 was $9 million, an increase of 73.5% compared to $5.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2007.

Net income was $8.2 million for the six months ended June 30, 2008, an increase of $2.5 million, or approximately 44.3% compared to same period last year. This equated to earnings of $0.22 per diluted share, compared to $0.15 per diluted share for the first six months of 2007 based on 38.1 and 36.8 million diluted shares respectively.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Discussion

Cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash totaled $7 million on June 30, 2008 compared to $0.68 million on March 31, 2008. The Company had $51.5 million in working capital on June 30, 2008 and a current ratio of 11.3 to 1. Stockholders' equity was $60.1 million on June 30, 2008, representing a book value of approximately $1.42 per diluted share as of June 30, 2008. Part of the net proceeds from this financing will be used for the expansion of the dry power production line. Its production capacity will increase 4 times after this expansion.

CEO Ms Li concludes, "The new rural co-operative medical system is a government funded program; the government is investing in medical insurance for the rural population, and has opened a potential multi-billion dollar market. From the government's endeavors, the new healthcare reform program is especially directed towards expanding medical coverage, and directly increases all aspects of the pharmaceutical market. The medical reforms will be a powerful driver of a rapid and strong increase in the growth of the pharmaceutical industry. From numbers released by the SFDA news center, improvements to the RCMS will continuously boost the expansion of the pharmaceutical market.

According to calculations of a rural population of 900 million, this will increase the market by more than RMB 60 billion. The financing closed during the second quarter is sufficient to finance our new product capacity, to develop high margin products, and to launch more products that meet the need of the market. The requirements of the SFDA have raised the entrance barrier of pharmaceutical enterprises, the GMP-recertification once every five years forced a sharp increase in standards of production facilities and R&D ability of the industry. The SFDA's newly-adopted regulations caused some of China's pharmaceutical companies to close, while other companies chose to sell out their products and distribution network to others who could meet the new regulation. We are advantageously positioned in an industry full of opportunities and challenges. The consolidation of the industry provides many opportunities for mergers and acquisitions."
