KUNMING, China, Nov. 12, 2010 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Shenghuo Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE Amex Equities: KUN) ("China Shenghuo" or the "Company"), which is engaged in the research, development, manufacture, and marketing of pharmaceutical, nutritional supplement and cosmetic products in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today reported unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010.
Third Quarter 2010 Financial Highlights
Mr. Gui Hua Lan, Chief Executive Officer of China Shenghuo, commented, "Sales for the quarter ended September 30, 2010 was approximately $8.55 million, decreased by 19% from approximately $10.56 million for the quarter ended September 30, 2009. Net income was $787,657 for the quarter ended September 30, 2010, as compared to net loss of $31,924 for the quarter ended September 30, 2009. The decrease in sales was primarily due to our adjustment of the sales commission policy to decrease the commission to sales representatives to offset the pressure resulting from the increase of the price of raw material. The Company will continue to make efforts to promote the sales of our products and control our costs."
Third Quarter 2010 ResultsSales: Sales for the three months ended September 30, 2010 was approximately $8.55 million, a decrease of approximately $2 million, or 19 %, from approximately $10.56 million for the three months ended September 30, 2009. The decrease was mainly due to the Company adjusted our sales commission policy to decrease the commission to sales representatives, which led to the decrease of the sales in the third quarter.
Since the spring of 2010, we faced a challenge of insufficient supply of our major material-Sanqi in Yunnan Province, where has suffered the worst drought in 50 years from last autumn to this spring. The output of Sanqi decreased sharply, resulting in the price of Sanqi increased remarkably. In order to release the pressure from increasing cost, the Company decided to adjust our sales commission policy to decrease the commission to sales representatives by 10% as compared to that in the first quarter, which led to the decrease of the sales. The commission policy is subject to adjustment from time to time according to the sales in the market. The Company in August has slightly increased its sales commission, as a result of a slight decrease in its cost of Sanqi.
Cost of sales: Our cost of sales for the three months ended September 30, 2010 was approximately $3 million, an increase of $0.05 million, or 2%, from approximately $2.95 million for the three months ended September 30, 2009. The increase in cost of sales was primarily due to the increase of the price of our main raw material which was caused by serious drought offset by the decreased sale volume.
Gross margin: Our gross margin for the three months ended September 30, 2010 was approximately $5.6 million as compared with approximately $7.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2009, a decrease of $2 million, or 27%. Gross margin as a percentage of revenues was approximately 65% for the three months ended September, 2010, a decrease of 7.1 % from 72.1% for the three months ended September 30, 2009. The decrease in gross margin percentage was primarily due to the increase of raw material price.
Selling expense: Selling expenses were approximately $3.85 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010, a decrease of $3.14 million, or 45%, from approximately $6.99 million for the three months ended September 30, 2009. The primary reasons for the decrease in selling expenses were: i) our adjustment on the commission policy to sales representatives as set forth above; ii) the strengthened control on the travel expense, business entertainment expense, etc.; iii) the decreased expense on OTC market development as compared to that of in 2009, since when we started to expand our business into the OTC market in selected areas around China.
General and administrative expense: General and administrative expenses were approximately $0.89 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010, a decrease of $0.17 million, or 16%, from approximately $1.06 million for the three months ended September 30, 2009, which was mainly due to strengthened control on professional fee.
Research and development expense: Research and development expense for the three months ended September 30, 2010 was $160,795, as compared to $10,534 for the period ended September 30, 2009, an increase of approximately $150,261 or 1426%. The increase was primarily due to the increase in the expenditure on one of our innovative medicines- Dencichine Hemostat and the cooperation with external experts since late 2009.
Other income (expenses): Other income were $298,543 for the three months ended September 30, 2010, which consisted of subsidy income, interest income, non-operating income offset by interest expense and non-operating expense, an increase of $434,546, or 320%, from expense of $136,003 for the three months ended September 30, 2009. The increase was mainly attributable to the subsidy income we received from the government in the third quarter of 2010.
Net income (loss) attributable to shareholders: Net income increased to $787,657 for the three months ended September 30, 2010 as compared to net loss of $31,924 for the three months ended September 30, 2009. The increase in net income was primarily due to the decrease of selling expenses and increase of subsidy income.
