HAIKOU CITY, China, March 3, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Pharma Holdings, Inc. (NYSE Amex: CPHI) ("China Pharma" or the "Company"), a fully-integrated specialty pharmaceuticals company in China, today announced financial results for the year ended December 31, 2010.
Full Year Highlights
"In 2010 we registered robust revenue growth, with increased sales across all product categories, while making meaningful progress in our research and development program," said Ms. Zhilin Li, China Pharma's Chairman and CEO. "Among key pipeline milestones achieved this year, we completed clinical trials of Candesartan, our new hypertension drug, and Rosuvastatin, our generic version of Crestor. We expect to launch these two products during 2011 and believe that they can generate higher than average gross margin compared to our current portfolio. In 2010 we also entered Phase II clinical trials of our novel cephalosporin-based combination antibiotic. Commercializing exciting new drugs like this, along with first-to-market generic medicines, is an important part of our strategy to enhance China Pharma's growth and profitability."
Full Year ResultsRevenues for the year ended December 31, 2010 were $74.4 million, up 21% from revenues of $61.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2009, reflecting higher sales across all of the Company's product categories.
The "Digestive Diseases" product group was the Company's fastest growing revenue category in 2010, with sales increasing 96% to $9.3 million from $4.8 million in 2009. The strong performance of the Digestive Diseases product group primarily reflects robust incremental revenue from Omeprazole, the Company's generic gastroesophageal reflux disease drug, and Tiopronin, a drug prescribed for treatment of acute Hepatitis B and drug-induced liver damage. Sales from the Company's second fastest revenue category in 2010, "Other Products", grew 31% to $14.1 million from $10.7 million in 2009. The year-over-year increase of Other Products revenue mainly reflects reinvigorated sales of Vitamin B6 after its placement on the Chinese government's Essential Drug List ("EDL") in 2009. The "CNS Cerebral and Cardio Vascular" product group ("CNS") generated sales of $23.9 million in 2010, representing an increase of 11% compared to sales of $21.5 million in 2009. We expect the upcoming new CNS products (namely Candesartan and Rosuvastatin) will strongly support the profitability and boost sales in this category once launched. Sales of "Anti-Viro/Infection & Respiratory" products, the Company's largest revenue category during 2010, grew 10% to $27.1 million from $24.7 million in 2009.
Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $30.3 million, up 18% from gross profit of $25.7 million in 2009. Gross margin was 40.7%, compared to 41.6% for the full year of 2009, reflecting a higher mix of sales from lower-margin products, including those listed on the EDL.
Selling, general and administrative expenses in 2010 were $5.6 million, or 7.5% of sales, compared to $4.8 million, or 7.9% of sales, in 2009. For the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company's bad debt expense was $0.5 million, compared to a bad debt benefit of $1.8 million in 2009. Management revised bad debt allowance estimates in the third quarter of 2009, which resulted in a one-time benefit of $2.8 million.
Operating income was $24.7 million in 2010, up 9% from $22.6 million in 2009.
For the year ended December 31, 2010, the Company paid income tax at a rate of approximately 11%. Income tax expense for the year ended December 31, 2010 was $2.7 million, compared to $2.3 million for the year ended December 31, 2009. The Company obtained "National High-Tech Enterprise" status from the PRC government in the fourth quarter of 2010. With this designation, the Company is entitled to a preferential tax rate of 15% for the next three years (2011 to 2013), which is notably lower than the statutory income tax rate of 25%.
Net income for the year 2010 was $23.4 million, or $0.54 per basic and diluted share, compared to $18.0 million, or $0.43 per basic and diluted share in 2009. Excluding the effect of the changes in derivative warrant liability and the one-time adjustment for bad debt allowance, net income would have risen by 23% to $21.8 million in 2010 from $17.7 million in 2009 *
Financial ConditionAs of December 31, 2010, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $3.7 million compared to $3.6 million as of December 31, 2009. Year-over-year, working capital increased to $79 million in 2010 from $61 million in 2009 and the current ratio rose to 7.1 times from 6.8 times.
Accounts receivable balance rose to $61.9 million in 2010 from $51.2 million at the end of 2009. The Company's management team continues to be sharply focused on improving accounts receivable collection and expects to make further progress in the quarters to come.
For the year ended December 31, 2010, cash flow from operating activities was $7.8 million, as compared to $10.7 million in 2009. Most of this decline was due to higher working capital usage from higher advances to suppliers and inventory levels in 2010 compared to 2009. The Company believed the current market for raw materials was fairly tight and used the opportunity in late 2010 to stock up its warehouses.
"In 2011, we anticipate adding new higher-margin revenue streams to our upcoming new products, which should help offset pockets of margin pressure coming from higher raw material costs and more competitive pricing due to government reform policies. Overall we are very optimistic that we have the right mix of products and pipeline opportunities to position China Pharma to benefit from China's unprecedented $124 billion healthcare reform program," said Ms. Li. "We believe our success in 2011 and beyond will be defined by our high-quality manufacturing facilities and promising pipeline, strong distribution relationships, and commercialization expertise."
Pipeline UpdateAs of December 31, 2010, China Pharma had nine pipeline drugs in different stages of active development. The development of three of such products is highlighted below:
