BEIJING, May 9, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Dehaier Medical Systems Ltd. (Nasdaq: DHRM) ("Dehaier" or the "Company"), an emerging leader in the development, assembly, marketing and sale of medical devices and homecare medical products, today announced its financial results for its first quarter ended March 31, 2012.
First Quarter 2012 Financial and Operating Highlights (percentage comparisons are year over year)
Mr. Ping Chen, Chief Executive Officer of Dehaier Medical, stated, "In the first quarter of 2012, we continued to show strong growth in China and have begun to enter international markets. We continue to grow our medical device distribution platform business, which includes working with a number of larger international manufacturers. We recently extended our exclusive agreement with Timesco of London Ltd., a progressive surgical and medical company. Simultaneously, we are developing our own branded product line domestically and abroad. Within China, our homecare medical products, focused primarily on sleep disorder and respiratory ailments, continued to gain traction among Chinese consumers."
Mr. Chen continued, "We are also continuing to diversify our revenues. In the first quarter of 2012, we focused on implementing state-level government-contracted projects. We have placed a strong emphasis on obtaining provincial contracts throughout China, which are larger in size and scale. In March, Dehaier won a new bid to implement a government procurement project to provide imaging equipment for township hospitals in Xi'an, Shaanxi, China. We believe this bid demonstrates how far our Company has grown, indicates the government's faith in our ability to complete these projects, and could significantly contribute to our revenues in 2012."
Financial ReviewMs. Aileen Qi, Chief Financial Officer of Dehaier, commented, "We were pleased with our first quarter financial results, which were in line with the Company's expectations. Our favorable mix of product sales and market share gains led to a 12.3% revenue increase over the prior-year's quarter. Dehaier's growth was mainly driven by sales of our traditional medical devices and government procurement projects. We have also focused on streamlining our costs and improving our inventory management and were pleased to lower our operating expenses as a percentage of sales. This has benefitted the Company considerably during a time of inflationary pressures on our products and has allowed Dehaier to remain cost-competitive."

Outlook for 2012Mr. Chen concluded, "Over the next few months, our primary focus is to utilize our existing distribution business as a platform to expand and grow into new revenue streams. We launched our home oxygen therapy service ("HOTS") in Beijing in the third quarter of 2011, and our management team remains focused on development and research of products as well as identifying the target customers, which we feel will contribute significantly to our future growth. We also have continued our expansion into the International healthcare market. In early 2012, we received CE Mark approval for our sleep diagnostic devices and air compressors, which will facilitate our efforts to sell our products in the European Union. We are seeking new and cost-effective means of distributing our products worldwide and are always looking for ways to corporate with others. Medical equipment sales and distribution will remain our main source of revenue going forward, and we expect this segment to develop at a stable pace and to serve as our foundation for growth. We will continuously leverage our cross-selling opportunities by expanding existing relationships of third-party distributed products, seeking new distribution partners and building international business for our proprietary products."
