Tianyin Pharmaceutical Co., Inc., (NYSE Alternext: TPI), a manufacturer and supplier of modernized traditional Chinese medicine ("TCM") based in Chengdu, China, today announced fiscal results for its third quarter ended March 31, 2009.
Revenue for the third quarter of 2009 increased 7.4% to approximately $9.9 million compared to $9.2 million for the third quarter of 2008. The slowdown in year-over-year growth was due to capacity production constraints and longer lead times into the distribution channels as new drugs were commercialized.
Cost of goods sold for the three months ended March 31, 2009 was approximately $5.1 million or 51.1% of revenue as compared to $5.1 million or 55.4% of revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2008, yielding a gross profit of $4.9 million and gross margins of 48.9%, compared to $4.1 million in gross profit and a margins of 44.6% during the third quarter of fiscal 2008. Thus, gross profits grew by 17.8% on a year-over-year basis as a result of higher sales, while margins improved through the optimization of product portfolio and enhanced cost controls implemented during the manufacturing process.
Operating expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2009 were approximately $2.6 million, up 13.1% compared to the same period in 2008. Selling, general and administration expenses for the period increased to approximately $2.5 million from $2.2 million in the third quarter of 2008 as a result of the implementation of Tianyin's sales and marketing strategy, including increased sales payrolls and direct marketing expenses. Research and development expenses were nearly flat at $0.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2009 compared to the year ago period.
Operating income for the third quarter of 2009 totaled approximately $2.3 million, a 23.5% increase from the $1.9 million reported for the third quarter of 2008. Operating margins were 23.1% and 20.1% for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 and fiscal 2008, respectively and were the result of increased revenues and gross profit, along with the prudent management of operating expenses.
Net income was approximately $1.9 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2009, a 48.8% increase, compared to $1.3 million for the third quarter of 2008. The company had an effective tax rate of 16.7% and 20.9%, for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 and 2008, respectively. Diluted earnings per share were $0.10 compared to $0.05 for the third quarter of fiscal 2009 and fiscal 2008 respectively, based upon 16 million and 24.5 million shares. The divergence in the share account relates to accounting for the company's preferred shares which are convertible into common.

"We are pleased to report another quarter of revenue growth and improved profitability. While revenue growth was impacted by capacity constraints, we are very enthusiastic about the launch of our new production facility which is expected to be online during the summer of 2009," commented Dr. Guoqing Jiang, Tianyin's Chief Executive Officer. "The Chinese government recently announced that it will significantly increase the overall investment in the Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) sector while implementing favorable policies to accelerate the development of new drugs, which we believe will provide a solid foundation for sustained future growth.
