HAIKOU CITY, China, Nov. 11, 2010 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Pharma Holdings, Inc. (NYSE Amex: CPHI) ("China Pharma" or the "Company"), a leading fully-integrated specialty pharmaceuticals company in China, today announced financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.
"Our well-balanced pharmaceutical portfolio continues to demonstrate healthy organic growth this quarter, led by Digestive Diseases and Other products. In particular, incremental sales of Omeprazole favorably impacted Digestive Diseases, while Granistron and Vitamin B6 drove Other product revenues during the reporting period," said China Pharma's President and CEO, Ms. Zhilin Li. "We also are very pleased with the successful completion of Phase I clinical trials of our novel cephalosporin-based combination antibiotic during third quarter 2010. Exciting new drugs such as this, along with other first-to-market generic medicines will enhance China Pharma's strong growth and profitability."
Third Quarter ResultsThird quarter 2010 total revenues grew 20% to $18.7 million from $15.5 million in third quarter 2009. Digestive Diseases product sales for the third quarter 2010 grew by 51% year-over-year to $2.4 million, primarily due to continued strong sales of Omeprazole, the Company's generic gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) drug launched in fourth quarter 2009. In the third quarter of 2010, the Company's Other Products category rose 100% year-over-year to $4.5 million, primarily due to higher sales of Granistron and Vitamin B6, the latter of which is one of two China Pharma products on the National EDL (Essential Drug List). Sales from the Company's Central Nervous System (CNS), Cerebral and Cardio Vascular products experienced modest growth of 5% to $5.9 million from $5.6 million in the comparable 2009 period due to strong performances from Ozagrel and Gastrodin Injection. Sales from the Company's Anti-Viro/Infection and Respiratory products decreased by 2% to $6.0 million from $6.1 million in the same quarter last year, but this group continues to be the largest contributor to overall Company revenue.
Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2010 increased by 16.5% to $7.6 million from $6.5 million in the comparable period last year. Gross margin for the third quarter was 40.8% as compared to 42.2% in the previous year quarter. The decrease in gross margin was largely due to increased sales volume from lower margin products compared to the same period a year ago.
Total operating expenses were $1.4 million (7.7% of revenue) for the three months ended September 30, 2010, compared to credit balance of $1.5 million in the same period last year, which included a one-time non-cash benefit of $2.8 million for bad debt estimate change.
Net income was $5.5 million, or $0.13 per basic and diluted share, compared to $7.2 million, or $0.17 per basic and diluted share in the year ago period, excluding the effect of change in bad debt estimate in the third quarter 2009, net income increased 29% from $4.3 million in the year ago period to $5.5 million this quarter
Nine Months ResultsRevenues for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 were $50.4 million, up 20% from revenues of $42.1 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2009. Gross profit for the nine months ended September 30, 2010 was $20.8 million, up 13% from gross profit of $18.4 million for the corresponding period of 2009. Gross margin was 41.3%, compared to 43.7% for the first nine months of 2009. Income from operations was $17.0 million, up 0.4% from $16.9 million for the first nine months of 2009.
Net income was $15.1 million, or $0.35 per basic and diluted share, compared to $15.1 million, or $0.36 per basic and diluted share in the year ago period, which included a one-time, non-cash benefit of $2.8 million from a change in bad debt estimate. Excluding the adjustment for bad debt estimate in the first nine months of 2009, net income increased 20% from $12.6 million in the year ago period to $15.1 million during the first nine months of 2010.
Financial ConditionAs of September 30, 2010, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $4.6 million compared to $3.6 million as of December 31, 2009. Year-over-year, working capital increased to $74 million from $61 million and the current ratio rose to 7.7 times from 6.8 times.
Accounts receivable balance net of bad debt allowance rose to $56.8 million at September 30, 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 nine months ended September 30, 2010, cash flow from operating activities was $6.1 million, as compared to $6.4 million during the same period in 2009.
Financial GuidanceGiven China Pharma's solid performance during the first nine months of 2010 and the outlook for the remainder of the year, the Company reaffirms its previous guidance of revenue growth of between 20% and 25% in 2010.
"Looking into 2011, we are optimistic that our promising later stage pipeline products will begin to contribute to China Pharma's overall performance. In the meantime, we remain focused on managing our current portfolio for growth and profitability, while positioning China Pharma to benefit from China's unprecedented $124 billion healthcare reform program," said Ms. Li. "We believe our future success will be defined by our high-quality manufacturing facilities, strong distribution relationships, and commercialization expertise."
Pipeline UpdateAs of September 30, 2010, China Pharma had nine pipeline drugs in different stages of registration process, including three that have passed China State Food and Drug Administration ("SFDA") technical analysis and entered clinical trials.
