BEIJING, Aug. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Biologic Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: CBPO, "China Biologic" or the "Company"), a leading fully integrated plasma-based biopharmaceutical company in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter of 2013.
Second Quarter 2013 Financial Highlights
Mr. David (Xiaoying) Gao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of China Biologic, commented, "We were pleased with our second quarter improvement in the quality of our business highlighted by steady sales growth, improved margins and several operational accomplishments. In the past quarter, market demand for our plasma-based products remained strong, which led to increased human albumin product revenue. In the first half of 2013, despite increased import levels in China of foreign human albumin, domestic pricing across our plasma portfolio remained largely stable as the overall market continues to show steady signs of growth, however we will continue to closely monitor market trends related to albumin import volume, and will adjust our pricing and product shipments accordingly. In the coming quarters, we aim to preserve our margins through transitioning to a more profitable product mix and implementing efficient cost control measures. We were glad to achieve improved plasma utilization efficiency following the launch of Factor VIII products. For the second quarter, sales of Factor VIII contributed approximately 2% of total sales and we expect its sales contribution to gradually increase in the long run."
"During the second quarter, our new plasma station in Cao County, Shandong Province commenced plasma collection operations. Additionally, our Shandong Taibang production facility obtained renewed GMP certification from the China Food and Drug Administration ("CFDA") at the end of June, ahead of schedule. Additionally, in Guizhou, we halted production at this facility on June 1st as planned and remain on track with the facility upgrade plan. We currently expect to resume production at Guizhou Taibang in the first quarter of 2014."
Mr. Gao concluded, "The Company announced that it is has entered into a redemption agreement with Ms. Lin Ling Li, an individual shareholder of the Company and her spouse, pursuant to which the Company agreed to redeem 1,479,704 shares of its common stock, representing approximately 5.49% of the total common stock outstanding on August 2, 2013. The redemption price is $20.00 per share, and the redemption shares will become treasure stock of the Company upon closing of the redemption. We believe this share redemption will improve China Biologic's shareholder structure, enhance shareholder value and benefit other existing shareholders of the company. "
Second Quarter 2013 Financial PerformanceTotal sales in the second quarter of 2013 were $53.6 million, an increase of 6.2% from $50.5 million in the same quarter of 2012. Excluding foreign currency influence, the increase in sales was primarily attributable to a mix of price and volume increases in certain plasma-based products. During the three months ended June 30, 2013, the prices all of the Company's approved products either increased or remained stable. The price increase for the human albumin products was primarily attributable to the increase of the retail price ceiling announced by the NDRC in January 2013, which came into effect at the beginning of February, enabling the Company to have more flexibility in pricing and to raise ex-factory prices in certain regional markets. The average price for human immunoglobulin for intravenous injection ("IVIG") products remained stable as compared to the prior year period.
During the second quarter of 2013, human albumin products and IVIG products remained the largest two sales contributors.
Cost of sales was $16.1 million in the second quarter of 2013, the same with that of the second quarter of 2012. Cost of sales as a percentage of total sales was 30.1%, as compared to 32.0% in the same quarter of 2012.
Gross profit increased by 9.1% to $37.5 million in the second quarter of 2013 from $34.3 million in the same quarter of 2012. Gross margin was 69.9% and 68.0% for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. The improvement of our overall gross margin was mainly due to the increased margin of human albumin products and the improved plasma utilization efficiency following the launch of Factor VIII products.
Total operating expenses in the second quarter of 2013 decreased by 6.8% to $12.1 million from $13.0 million in the same quarter of 2012. As a percentage of total sales, total operating expenses decreased to 22.7% from 25.8% in the same quarter of 2012.
Selling expenses in the second quarter of 2013 decreased by 41.4% to $2.4 million from $4.2 million in the same quarter of 2012. As a percentage of total sales, selling expenses were 4.6%, down from 8.3% in the same quarter of 2012. The decrease in selling expenses as a percentage of sales was primarily due to the Company's lower commission rate for certain products, which have been implemented since the second half of 2012. The Company has taken additional steps to further control selling expenses since the second half of 2012. However, the Company carried out a series of promotional activities and conferences for the newly-launched product Factor VIII starting from the second quarter of 2013. As a result, the Company expects selling expenses as a percentage of sales to increase in the following quarters.
General and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2013 increased by 11.8% to $8.9 million from $7.9 million in the same quarter of 2012. As a percentage of total sales, general and administrative expenses were 16.5% and 15.7% in the second quarter of 2013 and 2012, respectively. The increase in G&A expenses was mainly due to higher payroll expenses and employee benefits, an increase in share-based compensation and an increase in legal expenses related to the corporate defense against the proposed share acquisition by Shanghai RAAS Blood Products Co., Ltd., a public company listed on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange and a direct competitor of the Company in China.
Research and development expenses in the second quarter of 2013 were $835 thousand, representing a decrease of 10.1% from $929 thousand in the same quarter of 2012. As a percentage of total sales, research and development expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012 were 1.6% and 1.8%, respectively.
Income from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2013 was $25.3 million, an increase of 18.8% from $21.3 million in the same period of 2012. Operating margin increased to 47.2% in the reporting quarter from 42.2% in the same quarter of 2012.
Income tax expense in the second quarter of 2013 was $3.7 million, as compared to $3.3 million in the same quarter of 2012, representing an increase of 12.4%. The effective income tax rates were 14.0% and 14.5% for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.
Net income attributable to the Company increased by 25.9% to $16.2 million in the second quarter of 2013, from $12.8 million in the same quarter of 2012. Net margins were 30.2% and 25.4% for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively. Fully diluted net income per share was $0.57, as compared to $0.46 in the second quarter of 2012.
Non-GAAP adjusted net income attributable to the Company was $17.4 million or $0.62 per diluted share in the second quarter of 2013, compared to $13.3 million or $0.50 per diluted share in the same quarter of 2012.
Non-GAAP adjusted net income and diluted earnings per share for the three months ended June 30, 2013 excluded $1.2 million of non-cash employee share-based compensation expenses.
First Half 2013 Financial PerformancesTotal sales in the first half of 2013 were $107.6 million, an increase of 10.2% from $97.7 million in the same period of 2012. The increase in sales was primarily attributable to a mix of price and volume increases in certain plasma-based products.
As a percentage of total sales, sales from human albumin products and IVIG products were 40.2% and 43.5%, respectively, for the six months ended June 30, 2013.
Cost of sales increased slightly to $32.7 million in the first half of 2013, from $31.8 million in the same period of 2012. Cost of sales as a percentage of total sales was 30.4%, as compared to 32.6% in the same period of 2012.
Gross profit increased by 13.7% to $74.9 million in the first half of 2013 from $65.8 million in the same period of 2012. Gross margin increased to 69.6% in the first half of 2013 from 67.4% in the same period of 2012. The improvement of the Company's overall gross margin was mainly due to the improved gross margin of human albumin products as a result of price increases and the improved utilization efficiency of plasma following the launch of Factor VIII products.
Total operating expenses in the first half of 2013 decreased by 8.3% to $23.6 million from $25.7 million in the same period of 2012. The decrease of total operating expenses was mainly due to a significant decrease in the selling expenses, partially offset by an increase in the general and administrative expenses. As a percentage of total sales, total operating expenses decreased to 21.9% for the six months ended June 30, 2013, from 26.3% in the same period of 2012.
Income from operations for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $51.3 million, an increase of 27.8% from $40.1 million in the same period of 2012.

The tax rate applicable to the Company's major operating subsidiaries in the PRC for 2012 and 2013 is 15%.
Net income attributable to the Company increased by 20.5% to $31.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2013, from $25.8 million in the same period of 2012. Net margins were 28.9% and 26.4% for the six months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

Non-GAAP adjusted net income and diluted earnings per share in the six months ended June 30, 2013 excluded $2.7 million of non-cash employee share-based compensation expenses.
As of June 30, 2013, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $147.3 million, compared to $129.6 million as of December 31, 2012.
Net cash provided by operating activities for the six months ended June 30, 2013 was $37.9 million, as compared to $32.1 million for the same period of 2012.
OutlookFor the full year of 2013, the Company reiterates its full year financial forecast of total sales in the range of $195 million to $205 million and full year non-GAAP adjusted net income in the range of $50 million to $53 million.
