Revenue for the second quarter of 2009 increased approximately 20.6% to $13.6 million, from $11.3 million in the second quarter of 2008. The increase in revenue was driven by the Anti-Viral/Infection product category, which increased 19% to $5.2 million over the prior year period. Sales from CNS and Cerebral & Cardio Vascular drugs increased 4% to $5.1 million. Digestive product sales increased 101% to $0.94 million, mainly due to the sales contribution from the new product Tiopronin. In the Other Products category (including tumor drug Granisetron, and various other products), sales increased 36% to $2.3 million.
Gross profit for the second quarter of 2009 was $5.92 million, compared to $5.95 million in the second quarter of 2008. Gross margin was 43.5%, compared to 52.8% during the second quarter of 2008. Gross margin performance reflects increased sales of lower margin products during this quarter.
Operating expenses for the second quarter of 2009 decreased 31.7% to $1.1 million, from $1.6 million in the same period of 2008. Selling expenses increased 32.3% to $603,924 from $456,630 in the second quarter of 2008, due to the Company's substantial expanding investment in distribution channels and overall marketing efforts. For the period, the net recovery of bad debt was $40,147, compared to an increase in bad debt expense (net of recoveries) of $612,413 during the same period in 2008. General and administrative expenses were roughly flat at $553,607 in the second quarter of 2009 compared to $565,772 in the second quarter of 2008.
Operating income for the second quarter of 2009 increased 11.2% to $4.8 million from $4.3 million for the same period in 2008.
Net income for the second quarter of 2009 increased 6.2% to $4.3 million, up from $4.0 million reported in the same period of 2008. Diluted earnings per share was $0.10 in the second quarter of 2009, compared to $0.10 in the second quarter of 2008. The EPS calculation is based on 42.3 million fully-diluted shares, compared to 39.0 million shares in the prior year period.
As of June 30, 2009, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $3.6 million, which represented 4.2% of total assets, compared to $5.2 million, or 8.2% of total assets, as of March 31, 2009 and $6.9 million, or 9.2% of total assets, as of June 30, 2008. The quarter over quarter decline was primarily due to investing activities in new drug development in the second quarter of 2009.
On June 22, 2009, the Company received official approval from China's State Food and Drug Administration ("SFDA") to enter Phase I and Phase II clinical trials to test the efficacy of its cholesterol-lowering drug, Rosuvastatin. The Company plans to begin the trials in the first half of 2009, and estimates that it will receive a production license by the end of 2010.
The Company made improvements in account receivable collections during the second quarter of 2009 compared to the previous quarter of the year. Account receivable collections continue to be a focus of management and management expects further improvement in the quarters ahead.
CPHI is reiterating its guidance of 20% top line growth for the full year 2009, on a year over year basis.
China Pharma's President and CEO, Ms. Zhilin Li, stated, "We are pleased to report a quarter with continued revenue growth supported by increased marketing efforts and distribution expansion. In the second quarter of 2009, several newly-launched products started to show great potential in sales, and our existing products continued to increase their contributions to revenue. Our second quarter performance also reflects much progress managing our receivables collection efforts. We believe our efforts will result in improved collections in the coming quarters."
