NEW YORK, Aug. 19 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Tiens Biotech Group (USA), Inc. (the "Company" or "Tiens", NYSE AMEX: TBV), http://www.tiens-bio.com , today announced financial results for the second quarter and six months ended June 30, 2010.
Revenue for the second quarter of 2010 was $8.2 million, compared to $20.6 million for the second quarter of 2009. Revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2010 was $19.6 million, compared to $38.8 million for the first six months of 2009.
Net income for the second quarter of 2010 was $0.5 million, or $0.01 per share, compared to net income of $10.3 million, or $0.14 per share, for the 2009 second quarter. For the six months ended June 30, 2010, net income was $4.1 million, or $0.5 per share, compared to $19.3 million, or $0.26 per share for the first six months of 2009.
The decrease in revenue was mainly due to a decrease in international sales which reflects China's Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine carrying out a national campaign against unsafe food and substandard products in 2008, which brought on a general slow-down and backlog of export clearances for Chinese food products. Upon the lifting of the regulations, overseas affiliated companies began to purchase more products, thereby increasing sales in the first two quarters of 2009. Second quarter 2010 sales to Indonesia, Russia, Vietnam and Peru further decreased due to the distributors in these countries purchasing more products in the first half of 2009, after the 2008 product scarcity. The decrease in sales in China was mainly due to domestic distributors' reduced purchasing demand following their stocking up of products during 2009. Management believes the decrease in revenues is temporary, and that revenue growth will resume in the near future.
Cost of sales for the second quarter of 2010 decreased to $3.0 million, or 50.3%, compared to $6.1 million for the same period in 2009. For the six months ended June 30, 2010, cost of sales was $6.5 million, a decrease of 45.3% compared to $11.9 million for the same period in 2009. Cost of sales for the period decreased at a slightly lower rate than revenue, primarily due to fixed costs, which do not increase or decrease in line with revenue changes.
Gross profit for the second quarter of 2010 was $5.1 million, a decrease of 64.5% compared to $14.4 million for the same period in 2009. The gross profit margin for the second quarter of 2010 was 62.8%, compared to 70.2% for the same period in 2009. For the six months ended June 30, 2010, gross profit was $13.1 million, a decrease of 51.4% compared to the same period in 2010, and the gross profit margin was 66.9% compared to 69.4% for the same period in 2009. These decreases were mainly due to the decrease of revenue overall and fixed costs, which do not increase or decrease in line with revenue changes.
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $4.1 million for the second quarter of 2010, an increase of 1.4% compared to $4.0 million for the same period in 2009. This increase was primarily due to the increase in research and development expenses. Selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales were 49.8% for the second quarter of 2010 compared to 19.5% for the same period in 2009. For the six months ended June 30, 2010, selling, general and administrative expenses were $7.6 million, an increase of 5.9% compared to $7.1 million in the same period in 2009. This increase was mainly due to the increase in research and development expense. For the six months ended June 30, 2010, selling, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of sales was 38.7%, compared to 18.4% for the same period in 2009.
As of June 30, 2010, Tiens had $126.8 million of retained earnings and total shareholders' equity of $180.4 million.
Jinyuan Li, Chairman, President and CEO of Tiens, said, "We believe that our international and domestic sales will return to and possibly exceed previous levels as our domestic and overseas affiliated companies have indicated that they are not seeing sizable declines of their revenue, and that they expect that the market fluctuation will be temporary. They believe that revenue growth will resume in the near future, consistent with what they have achieved during the majority of the past 15 years. We remain committed to building greater market share in China, expanding our international customer base, and remaining focused on our efforts to generate long-term domestic and international growth."
