HAIKOU, China, Nov. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Pharma Holdings, Inc. (NYSE MKT: CPHI) ("China Pharma", the "Company" or "we"), a NYSE MKT listed corporation with its fully-integrated specialty pharmaceutical subsidiary based in China, today announced financial results for the three months ended September 30, 2013.
Third Quarter Highlights
"We feel excited about the launching of Candesartan, the long-awaited front-line drug therapy for the treatment of hypertension in November, 2013. We expect this product to bring positive impact on our revenue and margin through organized marketing and our existing sales network. " Ms. Zhilin Li, China Pharma's Chairman and CEO continued. "The successful renewal of National HT Status, which entitles us to a preferential tax rate of 15% for 2014, 2015 and 2016, requires strict scrutiny from the provincial government; and again evidenced our solid fundamentals and healthy operation. We will continue focusing on our business development and new GMP project construction, and believe that this will support the fair evaluation of our shareholders' interest in the future."
Third Quarter 2013 ResultsRevenue for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $8.1 million, a decrease of 33% from revenue of $12.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012. Given the capital expenditure pressure from the 2013 new GMP upgrade project, we have had to control credit expansion in the market, and the resulting marketing strategy with an emphasis on credit tightening has negatively impacted our revenue. However, the decrease in revenues in the third quarter 2013 has slowed compared to the condition in the previous quarters.
Our sales decreased throughout our major product categories. In terms of dollar amount, the most significant revenue decrease of $1.4 million was in our "CNS Cerebral & Cardio Vascular" product category, which generated $1.8 million in sales revenue in the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to $3.2 million for the same period in the prior year. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in the sales of Gastrodin and the CFDA recall notice on Bufomedil. In March 2013 the CFDA issued a nationwide notice which required the cessation of the production, sale and use of Buflomedil effective immediately. Consequently, the Company ceased the production and sale of this product. Sales of the "Anti-Viro/Infection & Respiratory" category decreased by $1.0 million to $4.2 million in the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to $5.1 million for the same period in the prior year. Our "Other" product category sales for the three months ended September 30, 2013 fell to $1.3 million from $2.5 million, a decrease of $1.2 million Sales of our "Digestive Diseases" category generated $0.8 million in sales in the three months ended September 30, 2013, compared to $1.2 million in the same period of the previous year, a decrease of $0.4 million.
Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $2.2 million, while gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $3.2 million. Our gross profit margin in the third quarter of 2013 was 28%, compared to 27% in the third quarter of 2012. The decrease in gross profit was in line with the performance of revenue in this period, and the gross margin remained stable.
Selling, general and administrative expenses in the third quarter of 2013 were $1.6 million, or 20% of sales, compared to $1.5 million, or 12% of sales, in the third quarter of 2012. This increase was mainly due to the expenses related to technology upgrades and production process improvements for some of our existing marketed products in the period. For the three months ended September 30, 2013, the Company recognized $3.3 million in bad debt expenses, compared to $0.2 million in the same period of 2012. The increase in bad debt expenses was mainly due to an increase in our accounts receivable that are beyond 720 days old. Our bad debt allowance estimate is currently calculated as the sum of 3.5% of accounts receivable that are less than 360 days old, 10% of accounts receivable that are between 360 days and 720 days old, and 100% of accounts receivable that are greater than 720 days old.
Our operating loss for the three months ended September 30, 2013 was $2.7 million, compared to operating income of $1.6 million in the three months ended September 30, 2012, a decrease of $4.3 million. The main reasons for the decrease were lower revenues and an increase in bad debt expense.
In the three months ended September 30, 2013 and 2012, we paid income tax at the rate of 15%. The Income tax benefit was $0.5 million in the three months ended September 30, 2013 compared to an income tax expense of $0.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2012. As a result of lower revenues, we have accumulated net operating loss carry forwards of $2.8 million which, under Chinese tax law, can be "carried forward" for 5 years.
Net loss for three months ended September 30, 2013 was $2.3 million, or a loss per basic and diluted common share of ($0.05), compared to net income of $1.3 million in the three months ended September 30, 2012, or earnings per basic and diluted common share of $0.03.The decrease in net income was mainly due to the decrease in revenue and the increase in bad debt expense.
Nine Months ResultsRevenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $24.4 million, down 43% from revenue of $42.9 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012. Gross profit for the nine months ended September 30, 2013 was $2.8 million, down 78% from gross profit of $12.7 million for the corresponding period of 2012. Operating loss was $10.4 million, down $17.7 million from operating income of $7.2 million for the first nine months of 2012. Net loss was $9.6 million, or ($0.22) per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $5.9 million, or $0.13 per basic and diluted share, for the same period a year ago.
Financial ConditionAs of September 30, 2013, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $4.5 million compared to $4.0 million as of December 31, 2012. Working capital decreased to $85.3 million as of September 30, 2013 from $97.9 million as of December 31, 2012 and the current ratio was 7.6 times as of September 30, 2013 compared to 7.7 times as of December 31, 2012.
Our accounts receivable balance decreased to $52.5 million at September 30, 2013 from $66.2 million at December 31, 2012. Our receivables decreased due to decreased sales, the improved performance of our collection of accounts receivable and an increase in our allowance for doubtful accounts.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2013, cash flow from operating activities was $3.7 million, as compared to $3.0 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2012.
