LAIYANG, China, Feb. 22 /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 the second quarter of its fiscal year 2010 ended December 31, 2009.
Second Quarter Highlights and Recent Events -- Revenue was $18.2 million, a decrease of 44.8% from the corresponding quarter ended December 31, 2008 -- Gross profit was $13.5 million, compared to $25.8 million for the corresponding quarter ended December 31, 2008, and gross margin was 74.3%, compared to 78.3% in the a year ago quarter ended December 31, 2008 -- Operating income was $7.1 million, down 37.4% from the corresponding quarter ended December 31, 2008 -- Net income was $5.3 million, or $0.49 per basic share, compared $5.4 million or $0.55 per basic share a year ago -- Excluding non-cash gains related to the change in fair value from derivative liabilities of $6.7 million and the amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs related to convertible debentures of $5.8 million, non-GAAP adjusted net income was $4.4 million, or $0.29 per fully diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2009, compared to non-GAAP adjusted net income of $6.6 million, or $0.46 per fully diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2008(*) -- Received renewal of Good Manufacture Practice ("GMP") certificate from the State Food and Drug Administration ("SFDA") for its tablets and granules -- In January 2010, Osteomyelitis treatment tablets were included in the 2009 Edition of the National Basic Medical Insurance Directory
"Our second quarter sales volume was adversely impacted by the temporary production stoppage at our main facility related to the re-certification of our GMP certificate. In addition, we faced heightened competition associated with China's newly announced National Basic Medical Insurance plan," said Jiangbo's Chairman and CEO, Mr. Wubo Cao. "Our main facility has now returned to normal operations and we have reinforced our sales efforts. We expect sales volumes to improve in the second half of 2010. We continue our cost control efforts, which we expect to improve operational efficiency and drive organic growth, and we plan to leverage our strong cash position to bring in new drug opportunities."
Second Quarter of Fiscal Year 2010 Results
Total revenue for the three months ended December 31, 2009 was $18.2 million, a decrease of $14.8 million from $32.9 million for the three months ended December 31, 2008. The 44.8% decline was due to decreases in unit sales prices and sales volume. Unit sales prices for Clarithromycin Sustained-released tablets, Itopride Hydrochloride granules and Baobaole chewable tables decreased by an average of 26% following the restructuring of the Company's distribution and sales system in January 2009. Sales volumes declined due to renewal of the Company's GMP certificate, which resulted in a six-week production stoppage at the Company's main facility. Jiangbo received its GMP renewal certificate in December 2009, which is valid for a period of five years. Additionally, the Company's major products faced increasing competition from similar products included in China's newly announced National Basic Medical Insurance.
For the three months ended December 31, 2009, Clarithromycin Sustained-released tablets and Itopride Hydrochloride granules accounted for approximately 40.2% and 30.9% of total revenue, respectively. Baobaole chewable tables accounted for 16.9% of total revenue and were down 51.5% compared to the first quarter of fiscal 2010. Baobaole faced increased competition from Jianweixiaoshi tablet and zinc additives. Radix Isatidis dispersible tablets accounted for 11.9% of total revenue.
Gross profit in the second quarter of the fiscal year 2010 was $13.5 million, a decrease of 47.6% from $25.8 million for the prior year's corresponding period. Gross margin decreased to 74.3% from 78.3% for the prior year quarter, primarily due to the previously mentioned decrease in the unit prices.
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $5.3 million for the three months ended December 31, 2009, down 60.4% from $13.3 million in the three months ended December 31, 2008. Salaries, wages and related benefits decreased to $1.5 million from $9.2 million for the corresponding quarter of fiscal 2009, primarily due to a significant decrease in commissions paid to the Company's sales representatives in connection with the sales restructuring in January 2009. Advertising, marketing and promotion spending for the second quarter of fiscal 2010 was $2.2 million, a decrease of $0.4 million compared to one year ago.
Research and development expenses totaled $1.1 million for the three months ended December 31, 2009, consistent with the three months ended December 31, 2008. The Company is obligated to make monthly payment to the designated university/institute research and development projects pursuant to two cooperative research and development agreements which were signed in fiscal 2008.
Income from operations was $7.1 million, a 37.4% decrease from $11.4 million for the three months ended December 31, 2008.
Other income was $0.2 million compared to other expense of $3.2 million for the three months ended December 31, 2008. Other income was primarily due to non-cash gains related to the change in fair value from derivative liabilities of $6.7 million, which the Company did not record in the prior corresponding period, and the amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs related to convertible debentures of $5.8 million versus $1.2 million in the prior year period.
Net income for the three months ended December 31, 2009 was $5.3 million, compared to $5.4 million in the year ago quarter. Basic earnings per share were $0.49, compared with $0.55 per basic share a year ago. Diluted earnings per share assumes the conversion of the Company's convertible notes and is calculated by adding interest expense to and deducting the loan issuance costs and unamortized debt discount from net income. As a result, the Company recorded a loss of $1.06 per diluted share, compared to a loss of $1.87 per diluted share in the same quarter last year.
Excluding non-cash gains related to the change in fair value from derivative liabilities of $6.7 million and the amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs related to convertible debentures of $5.8 million, non-GAAP adjusted net income was $4.4 million, or $0.29 per fully diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2009, compared to non-GAAP adjusted net income of $6.6 million, or $0.46 per fully diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 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.
Six Month Results
Total revenue for the six month period ended December 31, 2009 was $42.6 million, down 29.7% from $60.5 million for the six month period ended December 31, 2008.
Gross profit totaled $31.6 million, down 33.5% from $47.6 million in the year ago period. Gross profit margin was 74.3% for the six month compared to 78.7% for the corresponding period in 2008. Operating income was $19.8 million, a 5.6% increase year-over-year from $18.8 million last year. Net income was $7.5 million, or $0.70 basic earnings per share, compared to $8.5 million, or $0.87 basic earnings per share, for the corresponding period in 2008. Diluted loss per share was $0.89 per share, compared to $1.61 diluted loss per share in the year ago period. Excluding non-cash gains related to the change in fair value from derivative liabilities of $1.9 million and the amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs related to convertible debentures of $8.0 million, non-GAAP adjusted net income was $13.6 million, or $0.92 per fully diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2009, compared to non-GAAP adjusted net income of $10.5 million, or $0.74 per fully diluted share, for the quarter ended December 31, 2008.
As of December 31, 2009, the Company had $89.0 million in cash and an additional $14.5 million in restricted cash, as compared to $104.4 million and $7.3 million, respectively, at the end of fiscal 2009. The decline in cash was mainly attributable to the November 2009 purchase of land use rights for future factory expansion for $17.0 million and repayments for bank loans of $2.2 million. Working capital was $99.8 million, consistent with the level as of June 30, 2009. Shareholder's equity was $104.3 million, as compared to $126.1 million at the end of fiscal 2009. The decrease in shareholder's equity was the result of the reclassification of the Company's derivative instruments from the equity section to liability section of the balance sheet. The Company generated $3.2 million in cash flow from operating activities in the first half of fiscal 2010.
Business Outlook and Guidance
"Improving our operational efficiency, building our pipeline and strengthening our management team are expected to be our top priorities right now," said Mr. Cao. "We are already taking steps to address these challenges and look forward to providing updates on our progress."
Jiangbo's management has begun reviewing the existing marketing and sales system, including sales force compensation and incentive and effectiveness of our advertising activities. The Company is planning to take steps to reduce and eliminate operational inefficiencies and drive sales growth.
The Company recognizes the need to improve its product pipeline in order to ensure long term growth. In the past several months, the Company has been actively searching for new branded drug opportunities to license or acquire. Management expects revenues to improve in the second half of fiscal 2010. As such, the Company is maintaining its fiscal 2010 revenue guidance of $96 million to $98 million and operating income guidance of $42 million to $44 million.
On February 15, 2010, the Company entered into an agreement with one of the holders of its convertible notes, Pope Investments LLC ("Pope"), whereby Pope agreed to waive certain provisions set forth in the November 2007 and May 2008 securities purchase agreements for the Company's debentures and convertible notes, provided that the Company has made the November 2009 interest payments to the holders of the Company's November 2007 debentures and May 2008 notes on or prior to February 25, 2010. If the interest payments are not made by February 25, 2010 all rights and remedies of Pope defined in the 2007 and 2008 Securities Purchase Agreements shall remain in full force and effect as if this waiver had not been granted.
The Company also agreed that in the event that its common stock has not been listed on the NASDAQ Stock Market on or prior to April 15, 2010, it will pay to the holders of the 2007 Notes and the 2008 Notes an amount equal to the difference between the interest on such Notes previously paid for the period from June 1, 2009 to November 30, 2009.

Use of Non-GAAP Adjusted Financial Information
This press release includes certain financial information, non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP adjusted fully diluted earnings per share, which are not presented in accordance with GAAP. Non-GAAP adjusted net income was derived by taking net income and adjusting it with non-cash gains or losses related to the change in fair value from derivative liabilities and the amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs related to convertible debentures.

To supplement the Company's condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a non-GAAP adjusted basis, the Company has provided non-GAAP adjusted financial information, which is non-GAAP adjusted net income and non-GAAP adjusted earnings per share, excluding the impact of these items in this press release. The non-GAAP adjusted information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financials. The non-GAAP adjusted financial information provided by the Company may also differ from non-GAAP adjusted information provided by other companies.
