Revenue for the third quarter of 2008 increased 52.05% to $12.61 million, compared to $8.29 million in the same period of 2007 and above management's prior guidance for revenue growth of 40%-45%. The increase reflected the expansion of marketing and promotional activities aimed at increasing the sales of existing products, in addition to the Company's increase in pharmaceutical market share from the introduction of new products. Top contributors to the increase in revenue were the Company's branded product PuSenOK(TM), the first and only generic version of Aleve-D(R) available in China; Buflomedil, a treatment for peripheral blood vessel diseases; Roxithromycin dispersible tablet, a macrolide antibiotic; and Bumetanide, a diuretic approved by the SFDA in January 2008 for the treatment of edema caused by heart disease and hypertension. The Company continues to focus on expanding its capacity and distribution networks to support the development, manufacturing and sales of additional products.

Operating expenses in the third quarter of 2008 totaled $1.42 million, up 87.89% from approximately $0.76 million in the comparable period of 2007. The main reason was $0.46 million in Allowance for Bad Debt for this period, because in the same period last year, a substantial amount of aged receivables was collected, making that period's Allowance for Bad Debt, negative $0.17 million. Operating income in the third quarter of 2008 was approximately $4.7 million, an increase of 50.29% from approximately $3.1 million in the same period of 2007, while operating margin was approximately 37.23%, compared to 37.66% in the third quarter of 2007.

Gross profit in the third quarter of 2008 was approximately $6.12 million, up 57.62% compared to approximately $3.88 million in the third quarter of 2007. Gross margin was approximately 48.5%, higher than 46.79% in the prior year's period, and above the pharmaceutical industry's average of 34.2%.

Net income for the third quarter of 2008 rose 37.82% to approximately $4.25 million, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share, compared to $3.08 million, or $0.08 per basic and diluted share, in the same period a year ago. Diluted share count in the third quarter of 2008 was approximately 42.3 million, compared to approximately 37.2 million in the third quarter of 2007.

President and CEO, Ms. Zhilin Li, commented, "We are confident that our continued strong revenue growth for the third quarter of 2008 is a reflection of our focus on the largest segments of China's pharmaceutical market, in disease areas of high incidence and high mortality. Our rapid growth is supported by the ongoing delivery of new products, product technology, and branding. We are competitive within China's highly fragmented pharmaceutical market due to our high margin and low cost business model, which is supported by our scalable manufacturing infrastructure and diverse product portfolio based on market demand. Our near-term strategy is to maintain rapid growth by investing in marketing and promotional activities to increase sales and market share, expanding distribution, and developing competitive new products."

Recent and Upcoming Milestones

Clinical Trials of Novel Antibiotic Combination Approved by SFDA and Initiated

In November 2008, the Company initiated clinical trials of its novel antibiotic combination formula after the SFDA completed its technical analyses and cleared the product for clinical trials. The novel antibiotic combination is a third generation Cephalosporin antibiotic formulated with a bacterial- enzyme inhibitor for the treatment of infections. The inclusion of a bacterial-enzyme inhibitor gives it the potential to address antibiotic- resistant infections, which are on the rise in China.

AMEX Listing Plans Underway

The Company is confident that it meets AMEX listing requirements pending compliance with minimum bid price rules. During senior management's trip to the U.S., the team will continue to discuss listing preparations with specialists and advisors.

Two-Week U.S. Tour in November 2008 to Present at Conferences and Meet Investors

Ms. Zhilin Li, President and CEO, will visit the U.S. for the first time with senior management to meet investors and participate in two investor conferences. The U.S. tour will begin on November 10, 2008 in New York City, where management will present at Rodman and Renshaw's Annual Global Investment Conference. Management will visit investors in several other cities, including Los Angeles and San Francisco. The tour will conclude on November 21, 2008 in Las Vegas, Nevada, where management will present at Roth Capital's "China Comes to Vegas" conference. Management is available during each conference and in each city for one-on-one meetings.

"I am looking forward to meeting with our current and potential investors, during my first visit to the U.S.," added Ms. Li. "I am eager to discuss our recent accomplishments, particularly those we have highlighted today. The success of PuSenOK as the only generic Aleve-D in China has significantly increased the brand recognition of China Pharma Holdings, which we expect to benefit our current and future products on the market. We are also actively advancing our research and development pipeline, as demonstrated by the recent initiation of clinical trials for our novel antibiotic combination. The company's sustained development strategy is to focus on specific markets and strengthen our competitive advantages through the further development of products technology and brand creation, and by deepening the penetration of our distribution network while taking full advantage of growth opportunities emerging from China's recent healthcare reforms."
