"We are pleased to report another quarter of excellent results. Our products, especially our biological diagnostic kits achieved rapid sales growth, and sales of diversified products from our acquisitions in 2008 also made a strong contribution to our second quarter results. In the quarter, we launched a series of marketing campaigns in four of China's provinces to promote our skin-care products under the 'Yu Fu' brand and received very positive feedback," said Mr. Yan-Qing Liu, Chairman and CEO of China Sky One Medical, Inc.
"Over the past three months, consultants from PWC have been working closely with China Sky One Medical to examine and improve our internal controls in the fields of accounting, sales, purchasing and inventory management. We feel confident in the quality of our financial reporting," Mr. Liu added.
Second Quarter 2009 Results
Total revenues increased 35.5% year-over-year to $32.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2009. The increase was primarily attributable to the strong performance by the Company's own sales team and its sales agents as well as contributions from several complimentary business acquisitions in 2008.
Sales of patch products rose moderately to $9.9 million in the second quarter of 2009, accounting for 30.9% of revenue, compared to 37% a year ago. Sales of ointments rose 18.1% year-over-year to $7.7 million, accounting for 23.8% of revenue, versus 28% of revenue a year ago. Sales of spray products rose 69.3% year-over-year to $4.8 million, accounting for 14.9% of revenue, versus 20.0% a year ago. The increase in spray products was mainly from the increased sales of mouth sprays due to the outbreak of the H1N1 virus. Sales of bio-engineering products, i.e. three diagnostic testing kits, rose 71.9% year-over-year to $3.7 million, accounting for 11.5% of revenue during the quarter. Sales of the Company's other 48 products reached $6.1 million for the second quarter of 2009, compared to $3.5 million for the same period last year. The higher sales in this category were mainly due to an increase in diversified products from the acquisitions of Heilongjiang Tianlong Pharmaceutical, Inc. and Peng Lai Jin Chuang Pharmaceutical Company in 2008. Contract sales of non-manufactured products were discontinued since the beginning of 2009.
Gross profit in the second quarter of 2009 was $24.4 million, an increase of 34% over the same period a year ago. Gross margin was 75.9% in the second quarter, a slight decrease compared to gross margin of 76.7% for the second quarter of 2008.
Operating expenses in the second quarter of 2009 were $12.3 million, up 52% from $8.1 million in the second quarter of 2008. The increase was mainly the result of higher research and development expenses, which was associated with the ongoing clinical trials for proposed products and studies under the patents, licenses and other technologies acquired in 2008, and higher selling, general and administrative expenses, which were primarily attributable to increased selling and marketing costs.
Operating income was $12.1 million for the second quarter of 2009, representing a 19.8% increase from $10.1 million in the second quarter of 2008. Operating margin was 37.6%, compared to 42.5% in the second quarter of 2008.
Provision for income taxes was $2.6 million in the second quarter of 2009, compared to $1.8 million in the same period last year.
Net income for the second quarter of 2009 was $9.5 million, or $0.57 per diluted share, compared to net income of $8.1 million, or $0.50 per diluted share, in the second quarter of 2008. Diluted earnings per share were calculated using a weighted average share count of 16.6 million in the second quarter of 2009, compared to 16.1 million a year ago.
Six Month Operating Highlights
Total revenues for the first half of 2009 increased 57.6% year over year to $57.0 million as a result of expanded distribution channels and successful acquisitions. Gross margin was about 75.8% compared to 76.8% for the first half of 2008. Net income for the first six months of 2009 reached $16.7 million, or $1.01 per diluted share, compared to net income of $12.0 million, or $0.78 per diluted share, in the same period of 2008.
As of June 30, 2009, China Sky One Medical had $48.2 million in cash and cash equivalents, approximately $66.0 million in working capital, and no debt. Stockholders' equity at June 30, 2009, was $111.8 million, a 17.8% increase over the $94.9 million recorded at December 31, 2008.
The Company generated $17.8 million in net cash flow from operating activities in the first half of 2009. As of June 30, 2009, the Company had spent approximately $9.9 million in constructing a new corporate headquarters in Harbin Song Bei New Development District. The project is expected to be completed by the end of 2009, at which time the Company plans to move its administration offices, R&D center, and cord blood stem cell and tissue bank to the new facility. The Company believes that combining its operations into one centralized location will result in greater efficiency and will make it easier for management to conduct business activities. The estimated cost of this project is approximately $13 million. The Company plans to fund the project using internally generated funds.
The Company's subsidiary, Peng Lai Jin Chuang Pharmaceutical Company, recently obtained a renewal of its Good Manufacturing Practices Certificate for Pharmaceutical Products ("GMP Certificate") from the State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) in China. The new certificate will be valid until June 2014.
On August 6, 2009, China Sky One Medical announced the appointment of Dr. William Wei Lee as an independent member of the Company's Board of Directors, effective August 4, 2009. He replaces Mr. Jiang Qi-Feng, who resigned from the Board effective August 4, 2009. Dr. Wei Lee also replaces Mr. Jiang as a member of the Audit Committee, Compensation Committee and Finance Committee of the Board of Directors, and as "audit committee financial expert," as defined by the SEC rules adopted pursuant to the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002.
Business Outlook and Guidance
"We are confident about the prospects for our business in 2009 and will continue to focus on increasing market share by both strengthening and further refining our effective sales and distribution network, building and enhancing our brand image, and making strategic acquisitions that could support our growth. In the first half of 2009, our sales representatives increased from approximately 1,300 to 1,500. Our total pharmacy coverage number in 2009 reached approximately 5,500 over 24 provinces in China versus 4,500 over 22 provinces in China in 2008. Over the long term, we will continue to focus on the development and manufacturing of biological diagnostic kits and our anti- cancer drugs, which we believe have very promising market opportunities," said Mr. Liu.
"Based on our progress so far this year, we are reaffirming our guidance for the year," added Mr. Liu. "We expect 2009 full year revenue to increase by 40%, or approximately $37.0 million, to $128-$130 million, driven by growth in all of our product sales categories. We expect 2009 gross margin to be approximately 75% due to market competition and possible higher raw material costs. Operating expenses will increase due to a higher percentage of R&D investment as well as additional costs to support our expanding distribution channels as well as our sales growth. We expect that net income will increase to $38-$39 million, resulting in net profit margin of approximately 30%."
