''Jiangbo had strong financial performance in the third quarter of our fiscal year 2009.

Third Quarter of Fiscal Year 2009 Results
Total revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2009 was $25.7 million, compared to $28.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008.
In January 2009, Jiangbo restructured its distribution and sales system to concentrate on using 28 large independent regional distributors. The independent distributors agreed to take on higher direct marketing and sales expenses if they received lower unit prices for the Company's products. The Company lowered its per unit prices for its three major products to the independent distributors. Jiangbo's new strategy is to use independent distributors for the distribution and sale of its three major products in order to gain access to their knowledge of and access to specific local markets.
The Company lowered its unit prices charged to independent distributors by an average of 26.0% for Clarithromycin Sustained-released tablets, Itopride Hydrochloride granules and Baobaole chewable tablets. The decrease in revenue from lower prices for these three major products was partially offset by an increase in sales revenue from Radix Isatidis Dispersible tablets, a new product launched in December 2008, and other Traditional Chinese Medicines acquired from Hongrui in January 2009.
Sales volume for Clarithromycin Sustained-released tablets and Baobaole chewable tables was higher in the three months ended March 31, 2009 than in the three months ended March 31, 2008. Clarithromycin Sustained-released tablets, Itopride hydrochloride granules and Baobaole chewable accounted for approximately 88.6 % of the total revenue in the three months ended March 31, 2009. Sales volume for Radix Isatidis Dispersible tablets grew throughout the three months ended March 31, 2009.
Gross profit in the third quarter of fiscal year 2009 was $18.9 million, compared to $21.8 million in the prior year's corresponding period. Gross margin was 73.4%, compared to 77.4% in the prior year's corresponding period because of the impact of lower unit sale prices for the Company's three major products.
Research and development costs were $1.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009, compared to $1.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008.
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $4.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009, a decrease of 63.1% from $12.1 million in the three months ended March 31, 2008. Salaries, wages and related benefits decreased by 73.1% from $7.5 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008 to $2.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009 primarily because of the significant decrease in commissions paid to the Company's sales representatives. Overall sales commissions declined as a result of cost savings associated with the increased use of 28 independent distributors.
Income from operations was $13.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009, a 53.6% increase from $8.7 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008.
Other expense, comprised primarily of interest earned, interest owed and amortized debt discount, was $1.1 million compared to $2.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2008.
Net income for the three months ended March 31, 2009 was $8.9 million, $0.44 diluted earnings per share, compared to $4.5 million, and $0.46 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2008.
Excluding a loss from discontinued operations of $103,008, a gain on trading securities of $204,134, and amortization of debt discount and issuance costs related to convertible debentures of $1.2 million, non-GAAP adjusted net income for the three months ended March 31, 2008 was $10.0 million, $0.97 per share, compared to adjusted net income of $6.0 million, $0.61 per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2008.
Nine Month Operating Highlights
Total revenue for the nine month period ended March 31, 2009 was $86.2 million, up 21.0% from $71.3 million for the nine month period ended March 31, 2008.
Gross profit for the nine month period ended March 31, 2009 totaled $66.5 million, up 24.2% from $53.5 million for the nine month period ended March 31, 2008. Gross profit margin was 77.1% for the nine month period ended March 31, 2009, compared to 75.1% for the corresponding period in 2008.
Operating income for the nine month period ended March 31, 2009 totaled $32.1 million, a 45.3% increase from $22.1 million in the corresponding period in 2008. The Company's operating margin increased to 37.2% from 31.0% compared to the same period in 2008, as result of the Company's continuing efforts to reduce its expenses and control its costs.
Net income for the nine month period ended March 31, 2009 was $17.4 million, $1.27 diluted earnings per share, compared to $12.9 million, $1.14 diluted earnings per share, for the corresponding period in 2008. Total shares outstanding as of May 14, 2009 were 10,351,448.
Excluding a loss from discontinued operations of $1.7 million, a loss on trading securities of $1.3 million, and amortization of debt discount and issuance costs related to convertible debentures of $3.2 million, non-GAAP adjusted net income for the nine month period ended March 31, 2008 was $23.5 million, $2.37 per share, compared to adjusted net income of $14.8 million, $2.28 per share, for the nine month period ended March 31, 2008.
As of March 31, 2009, the Company had $86.1 million in cash and restricted cash. Working capital was $85.6 million, up from $72.5 million as of June 30, 2008. Current liabilities were $27.4 million and convertible debt, net of $29.8 million discount, was $5.0 million. Shareholders' equity was $113.9 million, compared to $95.5 million as of June 30, 2008.
The Company generated $41.1 million in cash flow from operating activities in the first nine months of its fiscal year 2009, compared to $17.7 million for the first nine months of its fiscal year 2008. The Company believes that its strong cash position will sustain its future working capital needs and successfully implement its growth strategies which include the expansion of manufacturing facilities.
On April 23, 2009, the Company announced that it changed its corporate name from ''Genesis Pharmaceuticals Enterprises, Inc.'' to ''Jiangbo Pharmaceuticals, Inc.'' to align the name of the public company with the name of its products. Management wants to associate the brand name ''Jiangbo'' with the Company while it continues to develop its brand and corporate image, and expands its product line.
Jiangbo's stock started trading on the Over the Counter Bulletin Board under ticker symbol "JGBO" on May 12, 2009. The Company's shares ceased trading under the ticker symbol "GNPH" at the close of business on May 11, 2009. The Company's shares are identified under a new CUSIP Number: 47737 R 10 1. The Company still plans to apply to list its common stock on a senior U.S. stock exchange.
In April, the Company announced that it began marketing and selling three Traditional Chinese Medicines. They are Yi Mu Cao Gao (a motherwort herb electuary sticky syrup), Gan Mao Zhi Ke Ke Li (an antipyretic and antitussive granule), and Kang Gu Sui Yan Pian (an osteomyelitis treatment tablet). In April, Jiangbo started to produce Laiyang Pear Cough Syrup and New Compound Foliumisatidis Tablets. Laiyang Pear Cough Syrup helps relieve coughs arising from colds and other illnesses. Market feedback has shown that children like its fresh pear taste. New Compound Foliumisatidis Tablets address influenza symptoms and includes both western chemical ingredients and traditional Chinese herbs.
Sales of these five products are expected to be $2.0 million in the fourth quarter of the Company's fiscal year 2009, which ends on June 30, 2009, and an estimated $8.0 million in fiscal year 2010.
Business Outlook and Guidance
In April, the Company reaffirmed operating income guidance of $40 to $43 million for its fiscal year ending June 30, 2009, and adjusted its revenue guidance for its fiscal year ending June 30, 2009 from a range of $122 million to $130 million to a range of $111 million to $116 million. This adjustment to revenue guidance was mainly because of the Company's charging lower unit prices to the 28 independent distributors which sell and distribute the Company's three major products. The Company expects to meet or exceed its fiscal year 2009 guidance.
On April 6, 2009, China unveiled its ''Guideline of Deepening the Reform of Health Care System'' (''Guideline''), a blueprint for health care over the next decade. By 2020, the world's most populous nation plans to have a basic health care system that can provide "safe, effective, convenient and affordable" health services to urban and rural residents. The State Council announced an investment of 850 billion Yuan (US $124 billion) to implement the health care reform plan in China.
''We believe that the Chinese government's planned reforms for China's healthcare system will increase demand for Jiangbo's products because a number of Jiangbo products are used to treat common and widespread illnesses. Several of our products should be good candidates for inclusion on provincial and the national drug lists, which are used to stock clinics and hospitals. We look forward to working with the government's planned programs to help meet the needs of an increasing number of China's consumers,'' concluded Mr. Cao.
