("China Sky One" or "the Company") (NASDAQ: CSKI), a leading fully integrated pharmaceutical company producing over-the-counter drugs in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today announced financial results for the second quarter of 2011.

SecondQuarter 2011Financial Highlights

  • Total revenues decreased 7.6% year-over-year to $37.7 million
  • The Company marketed 101 products, compared with 114 products in the quarter ended June 30, 2010

"Our second quarter revenue declined 7.6% year-over-year, primarily reflecting the loss of two distribution relationships in the third quarter of 2010. We continue to aggressively pursue new customers to distribute our broad portfolio of pharmaceutical products, while investing in China Sky One's future, as exemplified by our winning bid on land use rights for land in Harbin's Song Bei District. We intend to build a research and development center, an injection manufacturing facility, a logistics center and an office building on the land during the first phase of development, which we expect to complete by mid-2012," said Mr. Yan-Qing Liu, Chairman and CEO of China One Medical, Inc. "Despite the challenges of the past year, we are optimistic that we can reestablish robust revenue and earnings growth at China Sky One Medical by continuing to invest in R&D, securing new distributor relationships and identifying uses for our strong balance sheet and cash flow."

Second Quarter 2011Results

In the second quarter of 2011, China Sky One's total revenues decreased 7.6% to $37.7 million from $40.8 million in the same quarter last year, largely reflecting the continuing impact of terminated business relationships with a domestic distributor and an overseas sales agent during the third quarter of 2010, which negatively impacted the sales of the Company's Ointments, Patches, Sprays and Diagnostic Kits categories. These two distributors accounted for 0% and 17.4% of the Company's overall revenue in the second quarter of 2011 and second quarter of 2010, respectively.

By product category, lower sales from Ointments, Patches, Sprays and Drops contributed to the Company's overall year-over-year revenue decline, offset somewhat by top-line growth in Wash Fluids, Dignostic Kits, Suppositories and the Others category.

Sales of ointments declined 28.5% year-over-year to $8.3 million in the second quarter of 2011, primarily due to a $2.6 million year-over-year decline in the Company's Hemorrhoids Ointment product.

Sales of patches declined 34.2% year-over-year to $6.4 million in the second quarter of 2011. The decrease in patch product sales was primarily due to a 63.3% decrease in Slim Patch sales, along with sales declines of several other Patch products, primarily due the termination of a key distributor relationship in the third quarter of 2010.

Sales of wash fluids increased 133.5% year-over-year to $4.3 million in the second quarter of 2011, driven by strong sales of Metronidazole and Chlorhexidine wash fluids.

Sales of spray products decreased 22.6% year-over-year to $4.0 million in the second quarter of 2011, primarily due to lower sales of YinKe Spray and JieYin Spray.

Revenue from drops decreased 33.6% year-over-year to $1.9 million in the second quarter of 2011, primarily due to lower sales of Naphazoline Hydrochloride Eye Drops.

Diagnostic kit sales increased year-over-year by 36.4% to $3.2 million in the second quarter of 2011, primarily due to increased sales of Cardiac Arrest Early Examination Kits.

Sales of suppositories grew by 12.9% year-over-year to $2.6 million in the second quarter of 2011, driven by increased sales of Policresulen Vaginal Suppositories and Chlorhexidine Acetate Hemorrhoids Suppositories.

Sales from the Others product category increased by 43.0% year-over-year to $7.2 million in the second quarter of 2011. Higher revenues from Other Products were mainly driven by the sale of the thirteen additional products launched after the first quarter of 2010.

Gross profit declined 15.7% to $24.9 million in the second quarter of 2011. Gross margin in the quarter was 66.1%, as compared to 72.5% in the second quarter of 2010, mainly due to increases in the price of certain raw materials used to produce the Company's products, and lower sales prices of certain products due to the competitive sales market.

Operating expenses increased 5.1% year-over-year to $16.6 million in the second quarter of 2011. The increase was principally due to $0.6 million higher depreciation and amortization expenses and $0.5 million higher selling expenses, somewhat offset by $0.3 million lower general and administrative expenses. Second quarter 2011 operating income was $8.3 million, or 22.0% or revenue, as compared to an operating income of $13.7 million, or 33.6% of revenue, in the same period a year ago.

Total other income was $0.3 million in the second quarter of 2011, as compared to $2.1 million in the prior year quarter. The decrease reflected non-cash gain related to the change in the fair value of our derivative warrant liability related to the private placement in January 2008, which was $0.2 million in the second quarter of 2011 and $2.1 million in the same period a year ago.

Provision for income taxes was $2.4 million in the second quarter of 2011, as compared to $3.6 million in the same period last year.

GAAP net income for the second quarter of 2011 was $6.1 million, as compared to $12.2 million in the second quarter of 2010. Excluding the non-cash gain related to the change in fair value of derivative warrant liability, the Company's non-GAAP adjusted net income declined 42.0% to $5.9 million, or $0.35 per diluted share, as compared to $10.2 million, or $0.60 per diluted share, in the prior year period.

Financial Condition

As of June 30, 2011, China Sky One had $44.3 million in cash and equivalents, with a current ratio of 6.2. Working capital was approximately $61.2 million, up from $57.4 million at December 31, 2010. Stockholders' equity at June 30, 2011, was $179.9 million, 9.7% higher than the $164.0 million recorded at December 31, 2010.

Accounts receivable turnover days decreased to 51.6 for the six months ended June 30, 2011, as compared to 53.4 days in the same period of 2010. Inventory turnover days increased to 46.0 for the first six months of 2011 from 30.4 days in the year ago period.
