Sales for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 was $25.3 million, up 69.6% as compared to $14.9 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2009. The channel expansion and market penetration continue to be the major drivers for the revenue growth. Our current hospital coverage reached 880 hospitals up from 850 hospitals from the beginning of FY2011.

Revenues from the top selling products are listed as follows,

  • Gingko Mihuan Oral Liquid (GMOL): $5.4 million, prescription patented proprietary medicine for stroke and other cardiovascular conditions, nationally reimbursed;  
  • Apu Shuangxin Benorylate Granules (APU): $1.8 million, flagship OTC original granular formulation for inflammation and rheumatism;

These products totaled $10.1 million in sales, representing 40.0% of the quarterly revenue.

Cost of Sales for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 were $14.0 million or 55.3% of sales as compared to $7.2 million or 48.3% of the sales of the quarter ended December 31, 2009.

Gross Margin for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 was 44.7% as compared to 51.9% for the quarter ended December 31, 2009. The gross margins were attributable to the addition of revenues from Tianyin Medicine Trading (TMT), the distribution arm of TPI, in the current year. TMT related gross margins averages approximately 15.0%, while in this quarter, our organic portfolio delivered approximately 55.0% gross margins, an increase of 7.1%, over the 51.9% gross margins recognized for the quarter ended December 31, 2009.  

Operating Expenses for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 were $6.0 million, compared with $4.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2009. The increase was due to continuing sales expansion-related sales payroll and marketing expenses and the remaining approximately $0.5 million financial costs from the previous restricted stock compensation of 614,500 shares on July 15, 2010 to 55 key employees of TPI for their significant contribution during the fiscal year 2009 and the fiscal year 2010.

Net Income was $4.4 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2010, as compared to net income of $2.6 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2009, a net increase of $1.8 million or 69.2% year over year. Net profit margins for the quarter ended December 31, 2010 rose to 17.4% from 17.2% for the quarter ended December 31, 2009 as the leverage in the TPI's business operation further drives the revenue while keeping the operating expenses in-line with the sales expansion.

Diluted earnings per share for the three months ended December 31, 2010 were $0.14, up 70.9% from the earnings of $0.08 per diluted share for the three months ended December 31, 2009, based on 30.5 million and 30.4 million shares, respectively.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of December 31, 2010, we had working capital totaling $35.7 million, including cash and cash equivalents of $31.2 million or $1.11 per share in cash. Net cash generated from operating activities for the six months ended December 31, 2010 was $10.8 million, compared with $4.9 million for the six months ended December 31, 2009. The significant increase in cash generated from operating activities was mainly driven by the 69.7% increase of the operating income year over year and the net margin improvement to 17.4% from 17.2%. We believe that TPI is adequately funded to meet all of the working capital and capital expenditure needs for FY2011.

1) Steady growth of our organic product portfolio featured by GMOL, XLCC, AZI, APU, QR;

2) Capacity ramp-up of TPI's newly completed production facility;

3) Antibiotic API revenue from JCM

In our forecast, we assume steady pricings for our products. Net income forecast excludes any non-cash expenses associated with stock compensation plans or stock option expenses. 

The ongoing healthcare reform in China provides opportunities for our growth as well as challenges to our pipeline development, market expansion and margin improvements. The management will continue to evaluate TPI's business outlook and communicate any changes on a quarterly basis or as when appropriate.
