HARBIN, China, April 21 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Sky One Medical, Inc. ("China Sky One Medical" or "the Company") (Nasdaq: CSKI), a leading fully integrated pharmaceutical company producing over-the-counter drugs in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today responded to comments made by certain stock analysts, including short selling advisors, regarding the quality of its financial statements and corporate governance. These individuals never had any contact with the management of China Sky One Medical, Inc.
The reports issued by certain short selling advisors specifically called into question the Company's full year basic earnings per share (EPS) figures in its earnings press release dated April 15, 2009. The Company stands by its full year basic earnings per share figures as represented on its April 15, 2009, earnings press release and filed in its Form 10-K. In addition, the reports question the Company's ability to generate consistent gross margin, especially in light of volatile selling prices for certain products. This reports failed to note that overall average selling prices did not exhibit the same level of volatility, due to changes in the Company's diverse mix of 97 products, the growing contribution of new biochemical products and the discontinuation of lower priced contract products.
Finally, the reports issued by the short selling advisors cast doubt on the quality of the Company's corporate governance. The Company meets all corporate governance standards required by the NASDAQ stock market, including a board with a majority of independent directors and the establishment of audit, compensation and corporate governance and nominating committees.
"We have noticed that short selling advisors are disseminating information disparaging the quality of our corporate governance and financial data, and we take this matter very seriously," said Mr. Yan-Qing Liu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of China Sky One Medical, Inc. "We stand by the quality of our financial statements and governance, and would like to reiterate that management has not had any contact with the individuals circulating this information.
