China Nepstar Chain Drugstore Reports First Quarter 2009 Financial Results
Date:5/27/2009

of 2009 was 48.2%, as compared to 47.7% for the same period in 2008 and 50.7% on pro forma basis. The decrease in gross margin compared with that of pro forma basis was largely due to the price adjustments of certain price sensitive products to maintain competitiveness and to address the changing consumer consumption pattern as a result of worsened economic environment.

Sales, marketing and other operating expenses as a percentage of revenue for the first quarter of 2009 increased to 41.0% compared to 35.8% in the first quarter of 2008 and 38.3% on a pro forma basis.
