5/16/2007 1:43:13 PM

BEIJING, May 16 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- -- Net Sales Increase 36% to $7.5 million for Q1 2007 -- Income from Operations Increase 39% to $640,364

China Biopharmaceuticals Holdings, Inc. , a leading Chinese pharmaceutical company focused on the development, manufacturing and marketing of innovative drugs in China, today announced its results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2007.

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2007 totaled $7.5 million compared to $5.5 million for the period ended March 31, 2006, representing an increase of approximately 36%. The increase in sales was primarily attributable to the acquisition of Enshi in June 2006.

Cost of goods sold for the first quarter of 2007 was $5.5 million compared to $4.1 million for the same period in 2006. Cost of good sold as a percentage of sales revenues were approximately 73% for the first quarter of 2007 compared to 74% for the first quarter of 2006.

Gross profit for the period ended March 31, 2007 totaled $2 million compared to $1.4 million for the same period in 2006, representing an increase of approximately 40%. Gross profit margin for the three months ended March 31, 2007 was 27% compared to 26% for the three months ended March 31, 2006. Erye's higher gross margins were the main contributor to the Company's increased gross profit for the quarter.

Income from operations totaled $640,364 for the first quarter of 2007 compared to $461,722 for the first quarter of 2006, representing an increase of approximately 39%. The increase is mainly due to the significant increase in Erye's performance.

The Company reported a net loss of $88,268 for the first quarter of 2007 compared to a net income of $193,992 for the first quarter of 2006. Much of the loss is attributable to higher accrued interest expenses as a result of the loan from RimAsia for the acquisition of Enshi. EBITDA for the Company was approximately $910,000 for Q1 2007, compared to approximately $619,000 for the comparable quarter in 2006. This represents an increase of approximately $291,000 or 47%.

Mr. Chris Peng Mao, CEO of CHBP, stated, "While I am disappointed in our net loss for the quarter, I am pleased with our improved EBITDA and the progress and development of our three subsidiaries. While we continue to address the problems announced recently surrounding our acquisition of Enshi, we have made strong progress reinforcing our board, hiring a new chief operating officer, and reinforcing the accounting and business controls for our entire business."

Ms. ZHANG Jian, Chairwoman of the Board, commented, "It is a pleasure to join the team of China Biopharmaceuticals as the Chairwoman of the Board. I am confident that the financial outcome in the first quarter of 2007 will be a starting point from which we will build upon," Ms. ZHANG continued, "With the addition of Mr. SHI Mingsheng, COO, and Mr. DING Weihua to the board of directors, I believe that we have significantly enhanced management and management oversight. It is my goal to lead our experienced team back to solid profitability and growth in the near future."
