LAIYANG, China, Nov. 17 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Jiangbo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: JGBO) ("Jiangbo" or the "Company"), a pharmaceutical company with its principal operations in the People's Republic of China, today announced its financial results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2010 ended September 30, 2009.
First Quarter Fiscal Year 2010 Highlights: -- Revenues were $24.4 million -- Gross profit was $18.1 million -- Operating income rose 72.6% year-over-year to $12.7 million compared to $7.3 million in the first quarter of fiscal year 2009 -- Net income was $2.0 million, or $0.18 per fully diluted share -- Excluding non-cash expenses related to the change in fair value from derivative liabilities of $4.8 million and the amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs related to convertible debentures of $2.3 million, non-GAAP adjusted net income was $9.1 million, or $0.60 per fully diluted share for the three months ended September 30, 2009, up 128.5% from non-GAAP adjusted net income of $4.0 million, or $0.28 per fully diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2008.(*)
"Our first quarter fiscal 2010 results reflect the restructuring of our distribution and sales system, which we began in January 2009," said Mr. Wubo Cao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Although summer is usually the slowest season for our sales, we believe that we were able to still achieve strong growth in our operating income as we efficiently managed our selling and marketing expenses. We believe that our strong cash position will provide us with significant flexibility to pursue continued organic growth and strategic acquisitions."
First Quarter Results
Total revenue was $24.4 million, an 11.5% decrease compared to $27.6 million for the first quarter of 2009. While the quantities sold for Clarithromycin sustained-released tablets and Baobaole chewable tablets increased this quarter compared to the same period last year, the decrease in the total revenue was primarily attributable to the decrease of the per unit price by an average of 26% for Clarithromycin sustained-released tablets, Itopride Hydrochloride granules and Baobaole chewable tablets, the Company's top three selling products, for the period ended September 30, 2009. The three products accounted for approximately 86.5% of total revenue for the quarter.
In January 2009, the Company restructured its distribution and sales system to sell its products primarily through 28 large independent regional distributors and lowered the per unit prices of the three major products to the distributors. The Company also significantly reduced the commission paid to its sales representatives on those products.
The decrease in the revenue generated from the three major products was partially offset by the increase in revenue from Radix Isatidis dispersible tablets which were first released in the second quarter of fiscal year 2009. Radix Isatidis dispersible tablets experienced a significant increase in demand caused by H1N1 concerns during the three months ended September 30, 2009.
In the first quarter of fiscal 2010, sales of traditional Chinese medicines ("TCMs") accounted for 39.2% of total revenues, compared to 26.7% for the comparable period of fiscal 2009.
Gross profit decreased 16.9% to $18.1 million from $21.8 million in the comparable period of fiscal 2009. Gross margin was 74.3%, compared to 79.1% in the first quarter of fiscal 2009, primarily due to the lower unit price charged as a result of the previously mentioned sales network restructuring.
Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased 67.5% to $4.3 million from $13.4 million in the same period of fiscal 2009, primarily because the Company significantly reduced the commissions paid to its sales representatives and better managed its marketing, advertising, and promotional spending.
Operating income rose 72.6% to $12.7 million, as compared to $7.3 million in the same period of fiscal 2009. Operating margin as a percentage of revenue increased 25 percentage points to 52.0% from 26.7% in the same period of fiscal 2009.
Other expenses were $7.4 million compared to $2.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2008. The increase in other expenses was primarily due to non-cash expenses related to the change in fair value from derivative liabilities of $4.8 million, which the Company did not incur in the prior corresponding period, and the amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs related to convertible debentures of $2.3 million versus $0.7 million in the prior year period.
Net income was $2.0 million, or $0.18 per fully diluted share, versus $3.1 million, or $0.32 per fully diluted share, in the same period last year. Excluding non-cash expenses related to the change in fair value from derivative liabilities of $4.8 million and the amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs related to convertible debentures of $2.3 million, non-GAAP adjusted net income was $9.1 million, or $0.60 per fully diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2009, up 128.5% from non-GAAP adjusted net income of $4.0 million, or $0.28 per fully diluted share, for the quarter ended September 30, 2008.(*)
(*) See the reconciliation table at the end of this press release for a reconciliation of net income and EPS to non-GAAP adjusted net income and EPS.
As of September 30, 2009, the Company had $122.9 million in cash and an additional $14.6 million in restricted cash, as compared to $104.4 million and $7.3 million, respectively, at the end of fiscal 2009. Working capital was $66.3 million versus $99.8 million as of June 30, 2009. Shareholder's equity was $90.2 million, as compared to $126.1 million at the end of fiscal 2009. The decrease in working capital and shareholder's equity is the result of the reclassification of the Company's derivative instruments from the equity section to the liability section of the balance sheet. The Company generated $17.9 million in cash flow from operating activities for the first quarter of fiscal 2010.
Business Outlook and Guidance
While the Company expects its sales from TCMs to continue to grow, its sales from western pharmaceutical medicines will have minimal growth as both Clarithromycin sustained-release tablets and Itopride Hydrochloride granules have entered into their maturity phase. In terms of its TCM business, the Company expects sales of Radix Isatidis dispersible tablets to remain strong, in part due to the threat posed by the H1N1 flu. In addition, the Company expects its TCM business to benefit from the renovation of the Hongrui production facility, which is on track and scheduled to be fully online by April 2010. The Company believes that Hongrui's TCM products have good sales potential, and some of those products have been classified by the PRC government as appropriate for early treatment of the H1N1 flu. The Company continues to expect that once production has been ramped up, Hongrui's products should contribute between $4.5 million and $8 million in revenues per year.
The Company anticipates that it will receive final SFDA approval for the production of Felodipine sustained release tablets in the third quarter of fiscal 2010, which is expected to have a gross margin of approximately 85%. The Company continues to expect revenues for fiscal 2010 of between $96 million and $98 million and operating income of between $42 million and $44 million. The Company's current outlook reflects only the drugs that it has in production today and will be subject to update as the Company upgrades its Hongrui production facility, prepares for the introduction of new drugs, and pursues additional opportunities for both organic growth and potential strategic acquisitions.
Mr. Cao concluded, "We continue to remain confident with respect to our future prospects. We are leveraging our sales network and expect to maximize the contribution of our products that are in their maturity phase. We believe that our TCM business is healthy, with strong growth in our Radix Isatidis dispersible tablets product. Additionally, we are looking forward to the full re-opening of our Hongrui production facility in a couple of months. Overall, we continue to believe that fiscal 2010 will be a transition year for the Company, as we lay the groundwork and make the investments necessary for our next phase of growth."
