(the company) (NASDAQ: SVA), a leading provider of biopharmaceutical products in China, announced today its unaudited second quarter financial results for the period ended June 30, 2012. Sinovac is a China-based biopharmaceutical company that focuses on the research, development, manufacturing and commercialization of vaccine products. The company is making efforts to implement its business strategy to expand its range of product portfolio for both domestic and international markets. The Company has built a solid foundation of commercialized vaccines for hepatitis A, hepatitis A&B and seasonal flu. It has developed specialized pandemic flu vaccines for the H1N1 (swine flu) and H5N1 (avian flu) strains that have been stockpiled by Chinese government. Sinovac also has an extensive human vaccine pipeline inclusive of EV71 and pneumococcal vaccine candidates.
2012 Second Quarter Financial Highlights (year-over-year comparisons to second quarter 2011)
Recent Business Highlights
Dr. Weidong Yin, Chairman, President and CEO of Sinovac, commented, "Our financial results for the first half of 2012 clearly demonstrate the management team's progress in executing on our business strategies. We continue to aggressively expand our hepatitis A&B vaccine business in the private pay market, and we believe that we can leverage this experience when we commercialize our EV71 vaccine and other pipeline products in China. Besides strengthening our capability in the private market, we have been making significant efforts to expand our presence in the public market. Recently, we attribute winning the Gansu tender to the development of our public pay market sales initiatives."
Dr. Yin continued, "The Company's increased investment in R&D is driven by our EV71 Phase III trial, which is continuing in line with our targeted schedule. We are pleased to see the progress we have made in this Phase III clinical trial. The healthcare professionals participating in the trial are actively collecting the required data based on the quality and quantity specified in the protocol for the efficacy analysis of the vaccine candidate. In parallel with the clinical trial, the preparation of our dedicated EV71 vaccine production plant is underway. We anticipate that once the clinical trial is completed and after SFDA approval is obtained, we can immediately apply for the GMP certification for the plant, and make sure the EV71 vaccine product can be launched into the market without delay."
Dr. Yin continued, "We are on track to receive the GMP certification for our mumps vaccine. We are very pleased to see that after more than two years of development, Sinovac Dalian's first product is expected to be launched into the market in the coming months. This product will be the first mumps vaccine launched domestically which is manufactured in the plant that is in compliance with the new GMP standards in China."
Dr. Yin concluded, "Our strong cash position and secured credit line with a local commercial bank ensure our short-term investment needs on pipeline product development and facilities to drive the short-term and medium-term growth."

68.8%Core vaccine sales in the second quarter of 2012 increased 17.6% to $9.4 million, compared to $8.0 million in the same period of 2011. Bilive vaccines sales were up 25.8% this quarter. Total sales decreased 40.2%, compared to $15.7 million in the same period of last year that included $7.7 million of non-core government stockpile pandemic flu H5N1 vaccine sales.
Gross profit margin of the core sales was 85.3%, compared to 84.2% in the same period of last year. The overall gross profit margin for the same period in 2011 was 68.8% since the prior year quarter included a substantial proportion of non-core H5N1 vaccine sales that carried a lower gross margin. After deducting depreciation of land use rights, amortization of licenses and permits, the respective overall gross margins were 84.8% and 67.9% for the second quarters of 2012 and 2011.
Selling, general and administrative expenses for the second quarter 2012 were $6.7 million, compared to $5.0 million in the same period of 2011. SG&A expenses as a percentage of second quarter 2012 sales were 71.6%, compared to 31.8% during the second quarter of the prior year. Excluding the pandemic flu H5N1 vaccine sales in prior year quarter, SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales were 71.6% and 62.5% for the current quarter and prior year quarter respectively. The increased SG&A expenses was mainly due to the increased spending on sales and marketing programs to penetrate the private-pay market, preparation costs for GMP upgrade, and validation efforts for the equipment at Changping site that began in 2012.
Research and development expenses for the second quarter reached $4.7 million, a $2.4 million increase over the same period in 2011, mainly due to the ongoing EV71 Phase III clinical trial. The increase in research and development expenses in the second quarter over last year quarter was in line with the continued progress of the various research and development initiatives intended to drive the Company's pipeline products towards commercialization.
Depreciation of property, plant and equipment and amortization of licenses and permits for second quarter 2012 was $0.3 million, compared to $0.5 million for the same period of last year. The lower depreciation and amortization expenses in the second quarter of 2012 was mainly benefited from lower amortization expenses arising from fully amortized license and permits for the inactivated hepatitis A vaccine,
Total operating expenses for the second quarter 2012 were $10.3 million, compared to $7.6 million for the same quarter last year. The major drivers of the higher operating expense were the increased research and development expenses as the Company advances its pipeline vaccine candidates, and increased SG&A expenses due to more spending for core vaccines sales after offsetting from additional government grants recognized in income.
The Company's operating loss was $2.3 million for the second quarter 2012, compared to $3.1 million operating income for the same quarter last year. The swing from operating income in the last year's quarter to operating loss in this year's quarter was mainly due to the loss of the prior year contribution from government stockpile H5N1 vaccine sales of $7.7 million and the $2.7 million change in operating expenses discussed above.
Loss before income taxes and non-controlling interests was $2.0 million, compared to the net income $3.4 million in the same quarter last year.
Net loss attributable to stockholders in the second quarter 2012 was $0.9 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net income of $1.3 million, or $0.02 per basic and diluted share, for the same quarter last year.
As of June 30, 2012, cash and cash equivalents totaled $89.4 million, compared to $94.5 million as of March 31, 2012 and $104.3 million as of December 31, 2011, respectively. The Company utilized $2.3 million and $5.4 million of its cash resources in the second quarter and first six months period, respectively, for its ongoing clinical trial for its proprietary EV71 vaccine. The Company intends to allocate approximately an additional $3.7 million during the second half of 2012 and $0.9 million in 2013 to fund the ongoing Phase III trial. Under the credit line arrangements already in place that cover the ongoing capital needs of the Changping site development, $2.8 million was utilized in the second quarter, with $5.0 million utilized during the first half of the year. Capital expenditure payments to complete the Changping site, which are covered by the same credit line arrangements, are estimated at$17.2 million in the remaining quarters of 2012 and $1.7 million in 2013.
