Fourth quarter 2009 revenues were $13.3 million, representing a 43.2% increase from $9.3 million recorded in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008. The increase was driven by enhanced marketing and advertising programs supporting a broader product portfolio and improvements in the Company's sales channels which led to increased market penetration. Revenues in the fourth quarter generated by the top three selling products, Ginkgo Mihuan Oral Liquid, Arpu Shuangxin Oral Liquid, and Azithromycin Dispersible Tablets, were collectively $7.8 million and represented approximately 58.6% of total revenues for the quarter. During the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008 sales of top three products were approximately $5.9 million which represented 63.4% of total revenue.
Cost of sales in the fourth quarter 2009 increased 41.6% to $6.8 million, from $4.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2008. Gross profit in the fourth quarter 2009 was $6.5 million, a 44.9% increase from $4.5 million in the fourth quarter of 2008.

Operating expenses were $3.7 million and operating income was $2.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2009, representing a 45.2% increase from $1.9 million reported in the fourth quarter of 2008.
Net income for the quarter was $2.2 million, up 41.8% from net income of $1.5 million in the same period a year ago. Income taxes were approximately $0.5 million representing an effective tax rate of 18.5%.
Fully diluted earnings per share were $0.08 for the last quarter of 2009, compared to fully diluted earnings per share of $0.05 in the fourth quarter of 2008.
Tianyin incurred a one time impairment loss on intangible assets of $0.4 million related to Huganning Tablets, Qianbai Biyan Tablets and Xiaoyan Lidan Tablets. Without this charge net income would have been $2.6 million with diluted EPS of $0.10 based on 26.3 million shares.
Dr. Guoqing Jiang, Chief Executive Officer of Tianyin, commented, "We are very pleased with our financial results. Several factors contributed to our strong performance for the fiscal year as growth accelerated in the fourth quarter. These included our ability to achieve SFDA approvals and launch several new products, an expanded marketing strategy focused on branding key products, and our ability to gain market share by leveraging a large internal sales team with key distributors. We met a significant milestone by completing the construction of our new production facility which greatly improves our capacity to support growth during fiscal 2010 and beyond. While the past year was challenging for the global marketplace, we took decisive corporate actions which included issuing a cash dividend and buying back stock to reward our loyal shareholders."
Year Ending June 30, 2009 Financial Results
For the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009, revenues increased 28.2% to $42.9 million from $33.5 million reported for the prior year period. Expanded sales efforts helped create strong demand for the Company's branded and generic drugs including the introduction of 9 new drugs.

Revenues generated from the Arpu Shuangxin Oral Liquid were $10.4 million, or 24.2% of total revenues, a 54.3% increase from fiscal 2008. Tianyin's top 5 selling products generated revenue of $29.3 million and represented 68.3% of total revenue.
Cost of goods sold for fiscal year 2009 was approximately $21.5 million, yielding a gross profit of $21.4 million and gross margins of 49.8%, compared to $14.7 million in gross profit and a gross margin of 43.8% for fiscal year of 2008. The 600 basis point improvement in gross margins was primarily attributable to the growth in revenue, product mix optimization, enhanced cost control and focus on higher margin products in the Company's portfolio such as Ginkgo Mihuan Oral Liquid and Arpu Shuangxin Oral Liquid.
Operating expenses for fiscal year 2009 were $11.7 million, up 64.5% compared to the same period in 2008. Selling, general and administration expenses for the period increased to approximately $7.8 million from $4.7 million. The increase was primarily due to enhanced marketing efforts including increased sales payrolls and direct marketing expense.
Operating income totaled approximately $9.7 million, a 28.4% increase from the $7.6 million reported for fiscal year 2008. Operating margins were 22.7% and 22.6% for the fiscal year 2009 and 2008, respectively.
For fiscal 2009, net income was approximately $7.9 million, a 32.4% increase from $6.0 million recorded for fiscal 2008 and surpassed previously announced guidance by approximately 5.3%. Diluted earnings per share were $0.32, compared to $0.31 in the same period 2008, based on 24.8 million and 19.1 million shares for 2009 and 2008, respectively. The increase in the diluted shares was related to preferred stock which carries a fixed conversion price of $1.60.
The provision for income taxes was $1.6 million and $1.2 million for fiscal 2009 and 2008 with an effective tax rate was 17.2% and 17.1%, respectively.
"China's healthcare reform is being implemented to provide basic medical care for its 1.3 billion citizens by 2020 with approximately $126 billion being allocated during the next three years alone. This initiative is well underway as evidenced by the build-out of new Clinics and the publishing of the formal EDL. This creates significant growth opportunities for Chinese pharmaceutical companies like Tianyin which possess a diversified product portfolio and extensive sales and distribution channels. We currently have 17 products in our R&D pipeline which address wide range of chronic and critical conditions. We expect to receive additional SFDA approvals during fiscal 2010 which will further diversify our branded product base with high margin revenue potential while enabling us to further differentiate our company from our competitors. We will leverage the new production capacity to continue the growth momentum in fiscal 2010 and beyond," concluded Dr. Jiang.

Xuelian Chongcao Oral Liquid is an Over-The-Counter TCM drug that effectively replenishes kidney functionality and also improves overall energy. -- Tianyin completed construction of its new production facility in Chengdu which recently received Good Manufacturing Practices Certificate for pharmaceutical products from the State Food and Drug Administration ("SFDA") in China. Construction was delayed due to the earthquake in Sichuan which occurred on May 12, 2008. The new production facility is expected to triple the production capacity of solid dosage drugs, such as Azithromycin Dispersible Tablets, Mycophenolate Mofetil Capsules, and Dantong Capsules, and will be able to support approximately $100 million in annual revenues assuming the current product mix. The Company expects to commence production by October, 2009. -- Tianyin further expanded its product portfolio during fiscal 2009 which now totals 39 drugs. The Company received 10 new production approvals from the Chinese SFDA for drugs which address multiple medical conditions and will be produced in the new facility to drive incremental growth.

Azithromycin Dispersible Tablets, Simvastatin Tablets, Hugan Tablets and Xiao Yan Li Dan Capsules and Tablets are all generic. The inclusion will significantly increase revenues generated by these products while the gross margin will be lower due to pricing control. -- Tianyin declared a quarterly cash dividend of $0.025 with the second dividend being paid in September to common stock shareholders of record as of July 31, 2009.
