Mr. David Hui Li, Chairman of the Company, commented, " Our second quarter of 2018 continued to be challenging due to the ongoing impact of regulatory changes and intensified competition in China's healthcare market. Because of spending controls by regional government-sponsored medical insurance programs, an increasing number of hospitals across various provinces are implementing stricter drug purchase budgets by capping drug revenue to no more than 30% of a hospital's total revenue. This has led to another high-double-digit decline in our direct sales channel revenue in the second quarter. To offset this negative impact, the Company pursued new distributor and pharmacy channels. However, the intensified competition in the distribution market has caused over 10% year-over-year price declines across all major plasma products, deteriorated payment terms, and increased marketing expenditures. In addition, although our placenta polypeptide product experienced a 70% sales revenue growth in RMB terms, its sales volume declined over 30% due to the implementation of the two-invoice policy and the exclusion of it as a supplemental drug from the reimbursement lists of certain provinces. Our TianXinFu business performance met our expectations, and we remain conservatively optimistic about its growth in the second half of the year."

"Recently, the Board of Directors implemented certain important personnel changes. As previously disclosed, the Board removed David Gao as Chairman and director of the Board, and CEO and President of the Company. Subsequently, the Board also terminated David Gao's employment for cause based on the Board's review of the facts and circumstances of his removal. Concurrent to Mr. Gao's removal, two other directors stepped down from the Board. The Board elected me as Chairman, and elected two industry veterans Mr. Qi Ning and Mr. Bing Li to the Board as independent directors. While the Board is conducting search for a new CEO, the Board has appointed Mr. Zhijun Tong as the acting CEO. Mr. Tong is an experienced entrepreneur and executive, and has been a director of the Company since 2012. The Board believes that the overhaul of the senior management and the changes at the Board level will greatly improve the Company's governance and management and rejuvenate our business, particularly in today's challenging environment."

Mr. Li continued, "In July, we received the operating permit for our new Feicheng branch plasma collection facility and commenced commercial operations immediately. We also recently extended our strategic collaboration agreement with Xinjiang Deyuan for another 3 years to purchase at least an additional 500 tonnes of plasma. We believe this extended collaboration is mutually beneficial, as it secures plasma supply to enhance our Guizhou facility's utilization efficiency."

"For the second half of the year, we expect the regulatory headwinds and market competitive dynamics to persist, which will impact our guidance for the year. However, we remain optimistic about the mid- to long-term prospects of our industry, which we believe will continue to transit from a market of demand serving to demand creation in the next three to five years. Specifically, the industry growth engine will shift from albumin to IVIG and coagulation products, which have much higher margins and greater market potential. This transition will open many new opportunities for us and will take China's plasma industry into the next development stage to replicate what happened in the U.S and Europe decades ago. Currently, due to limited awareness among Chinese doctors and medical practitioners, the growth of immunoglobulin products and high-end premium coagulation products have lagged behind that of albumin, and under-penetration of these products will persist in China's markets. Our new Board leadership will support the executive management team to upgrade our commercial capabilities and to solidify our leading market position by expanding into new sales channels and by promoting our immunoglobulin and coagulation products. We will remain focused on improving per liter economics by leveraging our leading R&D capabilities to expedite the launch of new pipeline products. As always, we remain focused on pursuing long-term, sustainable growth and maximizing long-term shareholder value," concluded Mr. Li.

Second Quarter 2018 Financial Performance

Total sales in the second quarter of 2018 increased by 25.5% in RMB terms, or 34.8% in USD terms due to the benefit of favorable exchange rates, to $120.4 million from $89.3 million in the same quarter of 2017. The increase in total sales was partly attributable to a $13.0 million contribution from TianXinFu, which accounted for approximately 10.8% of total sales for the quarter. Excluding TianXinFu, total sales in the second quarter of 2018 increased by 11.9% in RMB terms, attributable to the sales increases in placenta polypeptide products, human albumin products, coagulation factor products, and certain immunoglobulin products, which was partly offset by the decrease in the sales of IVIG products. For plasma products, total sales in the second quarter of 2018 increased by 5.0% in RMB terms, or 12.7% in USD terms, to $90.3 million from $80.1 million in the same quarter of 2017.

During the second quarter of 2018, human albumin and IVIG products remained the Company's two largest sales contributors. Revenue from human albumin increased by 9.6% in RMB terms, or 17.6% in USD terms, from $32.4 million in the second quarter of 2017 to $38.1 million in the second quarter of 2018. Revenue from IVIG products decreased by 11.8% in RMB terms, or 5.4% in USD terms, from $29.7 million in the second quarter of 2017 to $28.1 million in the second quarter of 2018. As a percentage of total sales, sales from human albumin and IVIG products were 31.7% and 23.4%, respectively, in the second quarter of 2018. Excluding the contribution from TianXinFu, human albumin and IVIG products represented 35.5% and 26.2% of total sales, respectively, compared to 36.3% and 33.3%, respectively, in the second quarter of 2017. The large decrease of IVIG sales' percentage mainly reflected the combined effects of decreased sales volume and sales prices year over year.

The sales volume of human albumin products increased by 15.6% for the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same quarter of 2017, primarily due to increased sales volumes in the distributor and pharmacy channels, which was partly offset by decreased prescription volumes at various hospitals due to the ongoing healthcare regulatory changes in China. The sales volume of IVIG products decreased by 9.0% for the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same quarter of 2017, mainly reflecting decreased prescription volumes at various hospitals with the same effect of policy headwinds to human albumin.

The average prices for human albumin and IVIG products decreased by 5.2% and 3.1%, respectively, in RMB terms in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same quarter of 2017 because of greater sales volume in the distributor channel and further price discounts to certain distributors reflecting intensified market competition for major plasma products. In USD terms, due to favorable exchange rates, the average price for human albumin and IVIG products increased by 1.9% and 4.1% year over year, respectively.

Revenue from specialty immunoglobulin products increased by 12.8% in RMB terms, or 21.2% in USD terms, in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same quarter of 2017, reaching 12.8% of total sales. This increase was mainly due to higher sales volumes of human rabies immunoglobulin products and human tetanus immunoglobulin products.

Revenue from coagulation factor products, including human coagulation factor VIII, human prothrombin complex concentrate, and the newly launched human fibrinogen products, increased by 50.9% in RMB terms, or 62.3% in USD terms, in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same quarter of 2017, representing 7.1% of total sales. The growth mainly came from the launch of our human fibrinogen products in the beginning of 2018 and the increased sales volumes of the Company's human coagulation factor VIII and human prothrombin complex concentrate products, which is reflective of the Company's ongoing medical marketing activities.

Revenue from placenta polypeptide products increased by 71.6% in RMB terms, or 84.4% in USD terms, in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same quarter of 2017, reaching 14.1% of total sales, which was supported by higher unit selling prices in connection with the wider implementation of the two-invoice policy. However, the sales volume of placenta polypeptide products continued to decline as a result of their inclusion in regional supplemental drug lists, which put pressure on their prescription volume.

Cost of sales increased by 24.9% to $37.6 million in the second quarter of 2018 compared to the same quarter of 2017. As a percentage of total sales, cost of sales decreased to 31.2% from 33.7% in the same quarter of 2017. The decrease in cost of sales as a percentage of total sales mainly reflected the higher gross margin of TianXinFu. Excluding TianXinFu, cost of sales was 33.6% of total sales, remaining stable year over year, a net impact of a higher sales price for the Company's placenta polypeptide product and lower sales prices for its human albumin and IVIG products.

Gross profit increased by 39.7% to $82.7 million in the second quarter of 2018 from $59.2 million in the same quarter of 2017. Gross margin was 68.7% and 66.3% in the second quarters of 2018 and 2017, respectively.

Total operating expenses in the second quarter of 2018 was $46.9 million compared to $19.8 million in the same quarter of 2017. As a percentage of total sales, total operating expenses increased to 39.0% in the second quarter of 2018 from 22.2% in the same quarter of 2017. Excluding TianXinFu, total operating expenses increased by $22.0 million, or 111.1%, to $41.8 million in the second quarter of 2018. This increase mainly consisted of an increase of $16.7 million in selling expenses and an increase of $5.6 million in general and administrative expenses.

Selling expenses in the second quarter of 2018 was $24.4 million compared to $3.6 million in the same quarter of 2017. More than half of the increase was related to the sales of placenta polypeptide products with the remainder related to the sales of plasma products and TianXinFu's sales of its dura mater products. For placenta polypeptide products and certain hyper-immune products, because certain previous multi-layer distributor channels were disqualified due to the two-invoice regulation, the Company implemented new sales strategies including using an internal sales force and engaging third party contract service organizations to promote its placenta polypeptide products. For other plasma products, in order to solidify its competitiveness within distributor channel customers, the Company incurred additional promotion and marketing costs. TianXinFu's selling expenses included a $2.0 million amortization expense for the intangible asset of customer relationships associated with the Company's acquisition of TianXinFu. Excluding this intangible asset amortization expense, selling expenses accounted for 18.6% of total sales in the second quarter of 2018 compared to 4.0% in the same quarter of 2017.

General and administrative expenses in the second quarter of 2018 was $20.6 million compared to $14.3 million in the same quarter of 2017. As a percentage of total sales, general and administrative expenses were 17.1% and 16.0% in the second quarter of 2018 and the same quarter of 2017, respectively. The increase in general and administrative expenses mainly included a $2.7 million increase of share-based compensation expenses and a $1.0 million increase of Shandong Taibang's depreciation expense and property tax for its new facility. Excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses would have been 8.1% and 6.9% of total sales in the second quarter of 2018 and the same quarter of 2017, respectively.

Research and development expenses in the second quarter of 2018 remained at $1.9 million compared to the same quarter of 2017. As a percentage of total sales, research and development expenses decreased to 1.6% in the second quarter of 2018 from 2.1% in the same quarter of 2017.

Income from operations for the second quarter of 2018 decreased by 15.3% in RMB terms, or 8.9% in USD terms, to $35.9 million from $39.4 million in the same quarter of 2017.

This includes a $24.4 million contribution from TianXinFu, which accounts for approximately 10.5% of total sales for the first half of 2018. Excluding TianXinFu, total sales in the first half of 2018 increased by 7.0% in RMB terms as a result of increases in the sales of placenta polypeptide products and certain immunoglobulin products, which was partly offset by decreases in the sales of human albumin and IVIG products.

As of June 30, 2018, the Company had $103.3 million in cash on hand and demand deposits, $118.3 million in time deposits, and $144.6 million in financial instruments.

Net cash provided by operating activities for the first half of 2018 was $45.5 million, including an $11.6 million contribution from TianXinFu, compared to $36.9 million for the same period of 2017. Excluding TianXinFu, the $3.0 million decrease in net cash provided by operating activities was a combined result of: 1) the negative impact from a decrease in net income, an increase in accounts receivable, an increase in prepayments and deferred expenses, and decreases in accounts payable and tax payable; and 2) the positive impact from an increase of other payables and accrued liabilities, and a slowdown of increase in inventory compared to the first half of 2017.

Excluding TianXinFu, accounts receivable increased by $30.3 million during the first half of 2018 compared to $26.1 million in the same period of 2017. The accounts receivable turnover days for plasma products increased to 88 days during the first half of 2018 from 51 days in the same period of 2017, reflecting longer credit terms to hospitals as a result of the nationwide healthcare regulation changes and intensified competition in the distributor channel.

Excluding TianXinFu, inventories increased by $20.3 million in the first half of 2018. This is lower than a $22.8 million inventory increase in the same period of 2017, when Shandong Taibang stockpiled inventory to prepare for the planned temporary production suspension.

Excluding TianXinFu, other payables and accrued liabilities increased by $17.9 million in the first half of 2018 compared to a decrease of $2.9 million in the first half of 2017. The increase mainly reflected more marketing activities carried out by third party contract service organizations that the Company engaged to promote its placenta polypeptide and certain plasma products in compliance with the two-invoice policy.

Net cash used in investing activities for the first half of 2018 was $168.9 million compared to $16.6 million for the same period of 2017. Net cash used in investing activities in the first half of 2018 mainly consisted of a $529.6 million payment for the purchase of time deposits and financial instruments and a $19.1 million payment for the acquisition of property, plant, and equipment, intangible assets, and land use rights. This was partly offset by $97.7 million in cash received upon acquisition of TianXinFu and the maturity of $282.1 million in time deposits and financial instruments. In the same period of 2017, the Company paid $16.6 million for the acquisition of property, plant, and equipment and land use rights for Shandong Taibang and Guizhou Taibang.

Net cash provided by financing activities for the first half of 2018 was $0.8 million compared to $14.8 million for the same period of 2017. Net cash provided by financing activities in the first half of 2018 represented proceeds of $0.8 million from stock options exercised. Net cash provided by financing activities in the first half of 2017 mainly consisted of $14.3 million in short-term loan net proceeds.

Financial Outlook

The Company is making a downward revision to its full year 2018 forecast. The company expects non-GAAP adjusted income from operations to increase by 0% to 2% in RMB terms and non-GAAP adjusted net income to decrease by 2% to 4% in RMB terms over full year 2017 financial results. Excluding TianXinFu, full year 2018 non-GAAP adjusted income from operations is expected to decrease by 16% to 18% in RMB terms and non-GAAP adjusted net income to decrease by 19% to 21% in RMB terms over full year 2017 financial results.

The full year 2018 forecast was lowered to account for worse-than-expected results for the first half of 2018 and an ongoing challenging outlook in the second half of the year due to the following factors:

  1. persisting regulatory headwinds, which places downward pressure on sales growth;
  2. intensified competition in China's plasma industry, which continues to drive costs higher and prices lower among plasma product providers in China;
  3. investments in long-term improvements and upgrades to the marketing and sales capabilities, which places additional downward pressure on the bottom line; and
  4. a one-time provision in connection with the new facility project in Guizhou and certain fixed assets among certain non-operating collection stations.

In the interest of increasing transparency, the Company intends to provide future financial outlook using non-GAAP adjusted income from operations and non-GAAP adjusted net income instead of sales. The Company believes that providing a financial outlook using income from operations, while excluding non-GAAP factors such as non-cash employee share-based compensation expenses and amortization expense of intangible assets and land use rights related to the acquisition of TianXinFu, provides greater clarity and understanding of the Company's operations, especially in light of price surges for polypeptide products and certain hyper-immune products under the two-invoice policy accompanied by proportionately increased selling expenses.

This guidance does not factor in any potential foreign currency translation impact. Having previously adopted an exchange rate of approximately RMB6.76 = $1.00 based on weighted average quarterly exchange rates in 2017 in translating 2017 financial results, the Company expects that the non-GAAP adjusted income from operations and non-GAAP adjusted net income in USD terms in 2018 could be affected by the foreign currency translation impact.

This guidance excludes potential acquisitions, and necessarily assumes no significant adverse product price changes during 2018. This forecast reflects the Company's current and preliminary views, which are subject to change.

Conference Call

Non-GAAP Disclosure

This news release contains non-GAAP financial measures that exclude non-cash compensation expenses related to options and restricted shares granted to employees and directors under the Company's 2008 Equity Incentive Plan, and amortization of acquired intangible assets. To supplement the Company's unaudited consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis, the Company has provided non-GAAP financial information excluding the impact of these items in this release. The Company's management believes that its presentation of non-GAAP financial measures provides useful supplementary information to and facilitates additional analysis by investors. A reconciliation of the adjustments to GAAP results appears in the table accompanying this news release. This additional non-GAAP information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for GAAP financials. The non-GAAP financial information that the Company provides also may differ from the non-GAAP information provided by other companies.

In addition, as the Company evaluates certain key items of its financial results on a local currency basis (i.e., in RMB) in addition to the reporting currency (i.e., in USD), this news release contains local currency information that eliminates the impact of fluctuations in foreign currency exchange rates. The Company believes that, given its operations primarily based in China, providing local currency information on such key items enhances the understanding of its financial results and evaluation of performance in comparison to prior periods. Changes in local currency percentages are calculated by comparing financial results denominated in RMB from period to period.
