First Quarter 2008 Results

China Sky One's total revenues in the first quarter were $12.4 million, an increase of 140% on year-over-year basis. This was primarily the result of strong performance associated with the Company's continued efforts to develop its sales distribution channels. Product sales increased 174% year-over-year to $9.5 million, or 76.2% of total revenues. Contract sales increased 71% year-over-year to $2.9 million and accounted for 23.8% of revenues in the first quarter of 2008.

Gross profit in the first quarter of 2008 was $9.6 million, an increase of 136% on year-over-year basis. Gross margin was 77% of total revenues, in line with a gross margin of 78% for the first quarter of 2007.

Operating expenses in the first quarter of 2008 were $4.7 million, up 120% from $2.1 million in the first quarter of 2007. This increase was less than the increase in sales, and was primarily the result of higher selling, general and administrative expenses associated with the Company's sales growth. Research and development expenses were $0.7 million in the first quarter, compared with $15,210 in the first quarter of 2007. Operating expenses were 37.9% of total revenues in the first quarter of 2008, improved from 41.2% in the first quarter of 2007, due to efficiencies as the Company grows in scale.

Operating income was $4.8 million, compared with $4.9 million in the first quarter of 2007. Operating margin was 39%, compared to 37% in the first quarter of 2007.

Provision for income taxes was $1.0 million in the first quarter of 2008, compared to $0.3 million in the same quarter of the previous year.

Net income for the first quarter of 2008 was $3.9 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to $1.5 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the first quarter of 2007.

Financial Condition

As of March 31, 2008, China Sky One had $38.2 million in cash and equivalents, approximately $43.6 million in working capital, and no debt. Stockholders' equity at March 31, 2008 was $62.0 million, a 92.3% increase over the $32.2 million recorded at December 31, 2007. The Company generated $5.2 million in net cash flow from operating activities in the first quarter of 2008, up from $0.56 million in the same quarter of 2007.

Recent Events

On April 3, 2008, The Company completed the acquisition of Heilongjiang Tianlong Pharmaceutical, Inc., an external-use drug manufacturing specialty pharmaceutical company, through which the Company obtained $8.3 million in assets, which include $0.5 million in inventory, land use rights, GMP- certified manufacturing facilities, state-of-the-art production equipment, a research and development center, a portfolio of 69 approved drugs (in 98 forms) and a pipeline of 38 new drugs, all of which have been submitted to the SFDA for approval.

On April 18, 2008, the Company consummated a share acquisition pursuant to an Equity Transfer Agreement with the shareholders of Heilongjiang Haina Pharmaceutical Inc., a recently formed corporation organized under the laws of the PRC licensed as a wholesaler of traditional Chinese medicines, bio- medicines, bio-products, medicinal devices, antibiotics and chemical medicines. Through the acquisition, the Company obtained a Good Supply Practice (GSP) license issued by the Heilongjiang office of the SFDA, which will enable China Sky One Medical to expand its sales of medicinal products without having to go through a lengthy license application process.

On May 4, 2008, the Company announced the successful development of a semi-quantitative automatic inspection device for its diagnostic kits, which simplifies the diagnostic process and should stimulate faster adoption of the Company's diagnostic kits by healthcare professionals. The device has been examined by experts in the field and has been submitted to the SDFA for approval. The Company is responsible for all the research expenses and holds the patent for the device.

Business Outlook

"Thus far in 2008, we have completed two acquisitions, including one which will enhance our product portfolio and pipeline of new drugs and another which will allow us to quickly expand sales of our medicinal products. In 2008, we expect strong growth in all of our product categories, with sales of bio- chemical products and our highly successful Slim Patch making the largest contributions," said Mr. Liu. "For the full year 2008, and as a result of our recent acquisitions, we are currently on track to increase revenues materially as compared to last year and hope to increase our gross margin to approximately 78.5%."
