HAIKOU CITY, China, Aug. 15, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Pharma Holdings, Inc. (NYSE AMEX: CPHI) ("China Pharma" or the "Company"), a specialty pharmaceuticals company in China, today announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2012.
Second Quarter 2012 Highlights
"This year we expect to see many new Healthcare Reform policy implementations, most of which are centered around the theme of price control. With respect to the second quarter, new government reform policies as well as the general uncertain atmosphere of the industry continued negatively impacting our short-term sales volume. Besides that, we are also experiencing pricing pressure on most of our products." Ms. Zhilin Li, China Pharma's Chairman and CEO continued, "In addition, like the other Chinese pharmaceutical manufacturers, our Company is required to upgrade our facility to the new GMP standards. This round of upgrading is a challenge for all players, and also means survival of the fittest. The new GMP standards significantly raised the GMP standards in China. Existing drug manufacturers like us, depending on the risks of the products we manufacture, were given a grace period of up to three to five years to comply with the GMP standards. We are under the pressure of man power, material resources and timing to complete this upgrading."
Second Quarter of FY2012 Results of OperationsRevenues for the quarter ended June 30, 2012 were $14.6 million, a decrease of $5.0 million, or 26% from $19.6 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. The revenues decreased mainly because we reduced our sales-on-credit in order to improve the collection of accounts receivables. In addition, there have been disruptions from the implementation of the ever-changing Healthcare Reform policies. As a result, sales decreased in our four major product categories.Most of the decline in our total revenue was from our CNS Cerebral & Cardio Vascular category where sales fell by 32% to $4.1 million from $6 million for the same period last year. Sales in the Anti-Viro Infection & Respiratory category fell by $1.4 million to $6.7 million from $8.1 million in the prior year period. The "Digestive" category sales revenues edged lower by $0.9 million to $1.7 million from $2.6 million in the same period prior year. Sales of "Other" category fell by $0.8 million, or 27.1% to $2.1 million from $2.9 million in the second quarter of 2011.
Gross profit for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was $4.14 million, which was approximately 43% lower compared to $7.28 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2011. Our gross margin for the second quarter of 2012 was 28%, compared to 37% in the corresponding quarter of 2011. We are seeing pricing pressure on many of our products, although the pressure is not uniform across product lines. The impact of the implementation of the Healthcare Reform has affected pricing of our products throughout the distribution chain. These changes are causing unpredictable volatility in sales because pricing changes are not uniform across all geographical areas. As margins decline due to pricing pressures, every link of the distribution chain is being squeezed and becoming less active. We expect current challenging pricing environment to persist for some time.
In terms of our gross margins by major categories, gross margin for our Anti-Viro/Infection & Respiratory category decreased to 26.1% from 26.2% in the period one year ago. CNS Cerebral & Cardio Vascular category margin was 29.8%, decreased compared to the second quarter 2011 gross margin of 42.9%. Gross margin for our Digestive Diseases category decreased to 28.3% from 45.7%, in the period one year ago. Gross margin for our "Other" category fell to 33.7% from 42.5% a year ago.
Selling, general and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2012 were $1.70 million, compared to $1.79 million, in the same period of 2011. The decrease in general and administrative expenses along with the revenue did not completely offset the increasing selling expenses mainly due to higher labor cost and increased spending on promotional activities for our branded generics.
Operating income was $2.2 million in the second quarter of 2012, down 62% from $5.8 million in the second quarter of 2011. The decrease in operating income was mainly due to lower gross revenue, higher operating expenses in the current period compared to the corresponding quarter one year ago; and the one-time government subsidy income we got in the second quarter of 2011.
For the quarter ended June 30, 2012, the Company paid income tax at a rate of approximately 15%. Income tax expense for the second quarter of 2012 was $0.37 million, compared to $0.89 million for the same period last year. 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 three years from 2011 to 2013, which is notably lower than the statutory income tax rate of 25%.
Net income for the second quarter of 2012 was $1.8 million, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share, compared to $5.1 million, or $0.12 per basic and diluted share, in the second quarter of 2011. The main reasons for the decrease in our net income are the decrease in sales revenue, falling gross margins and higher operating expenses. Our net income for the second quarter of 2011 also included a positive effect of $0.26 million derivative gains.
Six Months ResultsRevenues for the six months ended June 30, 2012 were $30.7 million, down 19% from revenues of $37.7 million for the six months ended June 30, 2011. Gross profit for the six months ended June 30, 2012 was $9.4 million, down 33% from gross profit of $14.2 million for the corresponding period of 2011. Gross margin was 30.8%, compared to 37.5% for the first six months of 2011. Operating income was $5.6 million, down 49% from $11.1 million for the first six months of 2011. Net income was $4.6 million, or $0.10 per basic and diluted share, compared to $10.2 million, or $0.23 per basic and diluted share, for the same period a year ago.
Financial ConditionAs of June 30, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $4.9 million compared to $4.1 million as of December 31, 2011.
Working capital increased to $101.6 million at June 30, 2012 from $96.8 million at December 31, 2011. The current ratio decreased to 7.1 times at June 30, 2012 from 8.0 times at December 31, 2011.
Accounts receivable balance rose to $71.4 million at the end of the second quarter of 2012 from $69.7 million at the end of 2011; which also represent a decrease of $2.2 million compared to $73.6 million as of March 31, 2012. The Company's management team continues to be sharply focused on improving accounts receivable collection and expects to make progress in the quarters to come.
For the six months ended June 30, 2012, cash flow from operating activities was $1.9 million, as compared to $ 3.6 million as of June 30, 2012; which also represent an improvement from $0.1 million as of March 31, 2012.
