China YCT International Group, Inc. Announces Third Quarter Fiscal 2009 Results

NEW YORK, Feb. 18 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China YCT International Group Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: CYIG) ("China YCT" or "the Company"), a leading company engaged in the business of developing, manufacturing and marketing gingko-based products through its wholly owned subsidiary, Shandong Spring Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd, today announced its fiscal 2009 third quarter results for the period ended December 31, 2008.

    Third Quarter Highlights

    -- Revenue increased 60.4% period-over-period to $8.6 million
    -- Gross profit was $4.8 million, up 61.9% versus the third quarter 2008
    -- Income from operations grew to $3.0 million, an increase of 91.6%
       versus the third quarter 2008
    -- Net Income was $2.2 million, representing an increase of 130.3% period-
       over period

"Through the third quarter fiscal 2009, we continued to benefit from the ongoing trend of growth and expanding acceptance of our products. During the first nine months of fiscal year 2009, April 1 2008 through December 31, 2008, the Company kept experiencing the emergence and development of Shandong Spring Pharmaceutical as a marketing force. Having commenced revenue-producing operations only in January 2007, we realized $981,849 in revenue for the year ended March 31, 2007," commented Mr. Yan Tinghe, China YCT's Chairman and CEO, "During the first nine months of fiscal year 2009, which ended on December 31, 2008, we realized $21,973,438 in revenue."

Revenue for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 increased to $8.6 million, up 60.4% from $5.3 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2008. Overall, higher revenues were primarily attributable to increasing sales volume and income from our core business segments. During the past 2 years of operations, we have a total of 38 products each contributed to revenue, including health care supplements, cosmetics and toiletries and daily necessities, and no single product has accounted for more than 20% of our revenue. For the quarter ended December 31, 2008, health care supplements segment accounts for 61.4% of sales, and Cosmetics segment and Daily necessities segment accounts for 26.8% and 11.8% of sales, respectively.

Gross profit for the third quarter was $4.8 million, up 61.9% from gross profit of $2.9 million for the third quarter of fiscal 2008. Gross margin was 56.4% compared to 55.5% in the same period a year ago. The increase in gross profit is a result of our increase in revenues as we experienced an increase in demand for our products. Our gross margin largely remained unchanged. The increase in gross profit was mainly due to the increased revenue.

Selling expenses for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 were $1.7 million, or 20.4% of revenue, compared to $1.4 million, or 26.4% of revenue for the third fiscal quarter of fiscal 2008. The increase in the amount of SG&A expenses was primarily due to the increase in advertising expenditures. However, this increase can not be directly used to track and measure our ongoing SG&A expenses stream trend. It needs to be examined and measured in line with the movement of net sales. In particular, for the three-month periods ended December 31, 2008, the SG&A expenses to sales ratio is 20%, where it is 26% for the same period of fiscal year 2008. It sufficiently indicates we have made progress on reasonably controlling SG&A expenses. From this perspective, for the nine months ended December 31, 2008, our SG&A expense to sales ratio was 16%, representing a descending trend as compared to 23% for nine months ended December 31, 2007.

Operating income for the third quarter was $3.0 million compared to operating income of $1.5 million in the same period a year ago. Contributing to the operating income for the quarter was the significant increase in our sales.

Effective in January 2008, the income tax rate imposed by the government of China was reduced from 33% to 25%. The new tax provisions added to our improved results. Our net income for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 was $2.2 million compared to net income of $0.9 million in the prior year period. Fully diluted income per share was $0.08 compared to fully diluted earnings per share of $0.03 in the comparable period a year ago. Weighted average diluted shares outstanding for the quarter remained at 29.3 million.

Nine Months Financial Results

Revenues for the first nine months of fiscal 2009 were $21.9 million, up 106.7% from revenues of $10.6 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2008. Gross profit was $12.3 million, up 108.9% from gross profit of $5.9 million for the nine months of fiscal 2008. Gross margin was 56.1% compared to 54.9% for the comparable period a year ago. Operating income was $8.6 million, up 152.9% from operating income of $3.4 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2008. Net income was $6.4 million, up 188.4% from net income of $2.2 million in the same period a year ago. Fully diluted earnings per share were $0.22 compared to $0.08 in the first nine months of fiscal 2008. Diluted weighted average shares outstanding stayed at 29.3 million.

Financial Condition

As of December 31, 2008, the Company had $9,798,162 in working capital. Cash and cash equivalents were $10,297,023. In addition to $10,297,023 in cash and cash equivalents, the other significant portion of our current working capital consists of a loan receivable of $954,818 from Changqing Paper Co., an affiliated company also majority owned by our chairman, Mr. Yan Tinghe. Shareholders' equity was $15.7 million, compared to $9.0 million as of March 31, 2008. The Company generated $9.7 million in cash flow from operating activities in the first nine months of fiscal 2009.

"We believe that the mid- to long-term market opportunity for our products is growing at noticeable speed. Moreover, we have strengthened our balance sheet by reducing other receivable and current liabilities," Mr. Yan continued. "While the impact of the global economic slowdown will persist for the foreseeable future, we are seeing stronger operating results quarter-to- quarter, and we believe that, on a year-to-year basis, we will continue our strong growth into fiscal year 2010."
