HARBIN, China, May 18 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Rodobo International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: RDBO), one of the leading independent dairy companies in China, reported financial results for the second quarter and first six months ended March 31, 2009.
Second quarter financial highlights include:
Revenue for the second quarter ended March 31, 2009 was $6.3 million, an increase of 19% compared to Q2 2008. This increase was primarily driven by volume growth, with average selling price remaining flat over both periods. The new product series "Healthy Elderly", launched in October 2008, attributed approximately $1.1 million to the second quarter.
Sales of Whole Milk Powder Formula represented 39% of total sales in Q2 2009 compared to 27% in Q2 2008. Sales of Baby/Infant Formula represented 44% of total sales in Q2 2009 compared to 61% in Q2 2008. Sales of Adult Formula represented 17% of total sales in Q2 2009 compared to 12% in Q2 2008.
Gross profit for Q2 2009 was $2.3 million, down 4% compared to Q2 2008. The overall gross margin decreased from 45% in Q2 2008 to 36% in Q2 2009. The increase in the costs of goods sold and the decrease in gross margin was mainly driven by a different product mix that included more sales of lower margin products. Additionally, gross margin for Whole Milk Powder Formula decreased in 2009 compared to 2008 due to a 24% increase in the cost of raw milk.
Operating income in the first three months ended March 31, 2009 was $0.74 million, decrease of 34% compared to the same period last year. The decrease is mainly attributed to higher depreciation expenses due to equipment purchase and advertising expenses to support the growth.
Net income was $1.2 million relatively flat compared to Q2 2008.
Six months financial highlights include:
Revenue for the first half ended March 31, 2009 was $15.2 million, an increase of 63% compared to the first six months in 2008. The growth was primarily driven by higher volume sales and was also attributable to the launch of the new product line "Healthy Elderly". Sales for "Healthy Elderly" generated approximately $3 million in the period.
Sales of Whole Milk Powder Formula represented 31% of total sales compared to 39% in the six months ended March 31, 2008. Sales of Baby/Infant Formula represented 49% compared to 50% in the same period last year. The launch of the "Healthy Elderly" product line generated $3 million in the six months ended March 31, 2009, representing 20% of total sales.
Gross profit for the first six months of fiscal 2009 was $6.8 million, up 88% compared to the same period last year. The overall gross margin improved from 39% in 2008 to 45% in 2009. The improvement was mainly driven by the shift from low-margin products including Whole Milk Powder Formula to high- margin products including Healthy Elderly. The gross margin for "Healthy Elderly" was 53% for the first six months ended March 31, 2009 and the Baby/Infant Formula gross margin increased from 45% to 60%.
Operating income in the first six months was $2.7 million up 66% compared to $1.6 million in the same period last year.
Net income grew 77% to $3.1 million compared with $1.7 million for the six months ended March 31, 2008. This increase in net income was mainly attributable to the growth in sales, partially offset by an increase in cost of goods sold and operating expenses. This increase in net income was also attributable to an increase of subsidiary income from government support funds, from $0.09 million for the six months ended March 31, 2008 to $0.44 million for the six months ending March 31, 2009.
Mr Yanbin Wang stated: "During the first six months of our fiscal year, Rodobo International has experienced an impressive growth in revenues and earnings. This trend slowed down during the second quarter. We keep developing distribution networks and we're currently covering 4,463 retail stores in 6 provinces: Sichuan, Shaanxi, Henan, Shandong, Zhejiang and Fujian. The Company provides training and support to its growing sales and marketing team that includes: 2,320 employees. Currently, Rodobo International is building its own organic dairy farm that will meet international standards and include top technology equipment".
"We focus on providing high quality premium products for all our consumers and the construction of our dairy farm demonstrates the Company's dedication to this vision. We expect that our new and advanced dairy farm will start operating towards the end of fiscal 2009 and this will give us a tremendous competitive advantage in terms of high quality raw milk resources. Being certified as "Green Food" and winning the lucrative prize: Best Quality Control Enterprise of Dairy Products for 2008, reinforces our leading position in the market and we believe that it will be reflected in our financial results".
