China Biopharmaceuticals Holdings, Inc. (CHBP.OB) Announces Second Quarter 2007 Financial Results

8/15/2007 12:16:36 PM

BEIJING, Aug. 15 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- 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 second quarter ended June 30, 2007.

Revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2007 increased 28% to $8.9 million compared to $7 million for the period ended June 30, 2006. The increase in revenues was mainly attributable to the 31% revenue growth of the Company's subsidiary Erye Pharmaceutical Limited Company ("Erye"). Additionally, the Company realized a full quarter of revenue this year from Enshi as opposed to last year when the acquisition of Enshi was made.

Recent industry developments in China have provided Erye a great opportunity to continue to grow its core business going forward. The Chinese government has invested billions of dollars in a new insurance policy called "Cooperative Medicare." This policy is aimed at providing insurance for farmers in China. Erye will provide their products, which are currently focused on middle-end to low-end markets, to these farmers under the new policy.

Cost of goods sold increased 31% to $6.7 million for the second quarter of 2007 compared to $5.1 million for the second quarter of 2006. Cost of goods sold as a percentage of sales revenues was approximately 75% for the three months ended June 30, 2007 compared to 74% for the three months ended June 30, 2006. The increase in cost of goods sold has remained consistent with the growth of sales for the quarter.

Gross profit increased 18% for the three months ended June 30, 2007 to $2.2 million compared to $1.9 million for the same period in 2006. The gross profit margin for the three months ended June 30, 2007 was 25% compared to 27% for the same period in 2006.

Income from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2007 decreased 25% to $649 thousand compared to $860 thousand for the same period in 2006. The decrease is mainly attributable to high operational expenses and poor operational performance of Enshi of which financials were only partially reflected for the three months ended June 30, 2006.

The Company reported a net loss for the second quarter of 2007 of $29 thousand compared to a net income of $391 thousand for the second quarter of 2006. The net loss for the quarter was mainly attributable to the higher payment and accrued interest expenses as a result of the acquisition financing loan due to RimAsia Capital Partners for Enshi. EBITDA for the second quarter of 2007 decreased 25% to $945 thousand compared to $1.2 million for the same period in 2006.

As of June 30, 2007, total assets were $50 million and total liabilities were $36.7 million. Shareholder equity was $13.4 million or $.37 per share.

Ms. ZHANG Jian, Chairwoman of the Board, commented, "This quarter the management team and I have been focused on restructuring our balance sheet and building our core business, especially our most successful subsidiary, Erye. Recently, we signed a letter of intent with RimAsia to convert their $11.5 million of debt to equity. I can assure our shareholders that we are working diligently to ensure these negotiations become finalized in a timely fashion."

Ms. ZHANG Jian, continued, "I am also pleased to announce our intent to acquire the remaining 49% of Erye. With the continued success of Erye this quarter and the strong growth potential of this subsidiary, the team and I are eager to finalize the acquisition of the remaining equity. Once completed, I look forward to updating everyone on the signing of both of these definitive agreements and provide more guidance on our plans for the future."

Subsequent Events

Subsequent to the end of our second quarter on August 2, 2007, the Company and RimAsia Capital Partners ("RACP") entered into a letter of intent to restructure their $11.5 million loan. If executed as drafted, the Company must first acquire the 49% minority interest in Erye, so that Erye becomes wholly owned by the Company. The Company will also authorize a new class of preferred stock. At that time, Rim Asia will convert the $11.5 million loan into a senior redeemable convertible preferred stock with a conversion price of $1.02. Additionally, the Company will reduce the exercise price on the warrants issued with the original $11.5 million loan, from $1.375 to $1.26 and the term of the warrants will be extended from 3 years to 4.5 years from the date of the conversion of the principal of the loan into preferred stock.

Erye has demonstrated an impressive growth of more than 38% in net income in the first half of 2007. The Enshi acquisition has slowed down our original expansion plans due to management resources being devoted to its operations and integration. However, we still believe in the overall strategy of growth through organic opportunities and acquisitions. We expect that the recent changes in our management, with the addition of Erye's top management, Ms. ZHANG Jian and Mr. SHI Mingsheng will improve our overall operations. They recently joined our board of directors and are now playing an active role in our management, giving play to their industrial and manufacturing and marketing expertise.
