KUNMING, China, Nov. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Shenghuo Pharmaceutical Holdings, Inc. (NYSE Alternext US: KUN) ("China Shenghuo" or the "Company"), today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2011.

Third Quarter 2011 Highlights

  • Total revenue was approximately $10.9 million for the third quarter of 2011, an increase of 28% from approximately $8.6 million for the same period of 2010.
  • Gross profit as a percentage of revenues was approximately 64%, as compared to 65 % for the same period of 2010.
  • Net cash provided by operating activities for the nine months ended September 30, 2011 was approximately $2.3 million, an increase of approximately $0.1 million as compared to approximately $2.2 million for the same period of 2010.
  • Net loss attributable to shareholders was $506,454 for the three months ended September 30, 2011 as compared to the net income attributable to shareholders of $787,657 for the same period of 2010.

Sales: Sales for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was approximately $10.9 million, an increase of approximately $2.3 million, or 28%, from approximately $8.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010. The increase in sales was primarily due to the Company's main product Xuesaitong's sales increasing in Tianjin City and Yunnan Province as Xuesaitong was listed on the PIC list of Tianjin City since the second half year in 2010 and the Company strengthened sales promotion in the provinces and cities where Xuesaitong was listed on their PIC lists, especially Yunnan Province and Tianjin City. The OTC market also contributed part of increase of revenue as the Company also strengthened the OTC market development in 2011.

Cost of goods sold: Our cost of sales for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was approximately $3.9 million, an increase of approximately $0.9 million or 31% from approximately $3.0 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010. The increase in cost of sales was due to the increase of the sales volume and the purchase price of Sanqi which is the main raw material of our main product Xuesaitong. Although we have started to grow Sanqi within the Resort, we will not be able to harvest until 2014 because it has a three year growth cycle. In addition, the Zhonghuang Hotel began trial operation since January 2011 which has contributed approximately $0.5 million to the increase of cost of sales.

Gross profit: Our gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was approximately $7.0 million as compared with approximately $5.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010, an increase of approximately $1.4 million, or 26%. Gross profit as a percentage of revenues was approximately 64% for the three months ended September 30, 2011, a decrease of 1% from 65% for the three months ended September 30, 2010. The slight decrease in gross profit percentage was primarily due to the increase of cost of sales as set forth above.

Selling expense: Selling expenses were approximately $5.2 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011, an increase of approximately $1.4 million, or 36%, from approximately $3.8 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010. The primary reason for the increase in selling expenses was due to increase of sales commission to sales representative in line with the sales increment.

We reimburse the sales representatives their selling and marketing expenses when they submit the appropriate documentation to be reimbursed and their sales are collected. We reimburse the sales representatives their accrued selling expenses when related accounts receivable are collected.

General and administrative expense: General and administrative expenses were approximately $1.4 million for the three months ended September 30, 2011, an increase of approximately $0.5 million, or 53%, from approximately $0.9 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010. The increase was primarily due to the increase of the management's traveling and conference expenses for expanding our sales channel. In addition, Zhonghuang Hotel began trial operation since January 2011 which has contributed $94,100 to the increase of general and administrative expense.

Research and development expense: Research and development expense for the three months ended September 30, 2011 was $321,297, as compared to $160,795 for the three months ended September 30, 2010, an increase of $160,502. The increase was primarily due to the expenditures in the third quarter of 2011 for outside experts for the Phase I clinical test of Sh1002 which amounted to $168,680.

Other expenses: Other expenses were $592,448 for the three months ended September 30, 2011, which consisted of interest expense and non-operating expense, offset by subsidy income, interest income and non-operating income, a decrease of $890,991, or 298%, from an income of $298,543 for the three months ended September 30, 2010. The decrease was mainly due to an increase in interest expenses occurring and less subsidy income received as compared the same period in 2010.

Income tax benefit (expense): Income tax benefit was $37,949 for the three months ended September 30, 2011 as compared to income tax expense of $118,370 for the three months ended September 30, 2010. The tax benefit was mainly attributable to the medicine segment of the Company and the deferred tax assets benefit from accrued expenses and provisions for inventory.

Net (loss) income attributable to shareholders: Net loss was $506,454 for the three months ended September 30, 2011 as compared to the net income of $787,657 for the three months ended September 30, 2010. The net loss was primarily due to the increase of the cost of raw material, expenses related to the trial operation of Shenghuo Plaza, research and development expense on the Phase I clinical test of Sh1002 in America, operating expenses, interest expense, and less government subsidy income ($1,011 as compared to $492,451 for the prior year period).

The Company expects to receive mortgage financing for its completed Shenghuo Plaza and two office buildings upon obtaining the Building Completion Certificates and the Property Ownership Certificate. This financing should help address the imbalance between the Company's ratio of current liabilities to current assets and result in an improved balance sheet.
