  • Gross profit margin was 39% in the second quarter of 2014, compared to 27% in second quarter of 2013.

"We have submitted the application for a new GMP certificate at the end of June 2014. We believe that the GMP upgrading will be successful and expect the new GMP certificate to be issued in approximately three to six months from our submission of the application," said Ms. Zhilin Li, China Pharma's Chairman and CEO.  Ms. Li continued, "The national CFDA staff was originally scheduled for an on-site-review of our new facility and production lines in late July of 2014. The review is a mandatory and major step in order for us to receive the new GMP certification.  However, due to a once-in-forty-year 16 grade super typhoon Rammasun hitting Haikou on July 18, 2014, the on-site-review was postponed and the typhoon caused considerable damage to our manufacturing facilities and inventory. We have taken emergency measures to restore and recover post-typhoon to be ready for the rescheduled on-site-review in mid-August."
