"We are pleased to report another quarter of solid results for our second quarter of 2009. We achieved strong organic growth and benefitted from the consolidation of our Dalin acquisition," said Mr. Chao Ming Zhao, CEO of China Biologic Products. "We believe that as a result of these acquisitions we are now strategically positioned as the leading non-state-owned plasma-based biopharmaceutical company in China. We continue to work to integrate these acquisitions to obtain additional synergies and economies of scale."
During the second quarter of 2009, the Company achieved the following milestones:
-- China Biologic completed the acquisition of a 90% equity interest in Dalin and in Dalin's 54% majority-owned operating subsidiary, Qianfeng Biological Products Co., Ltd. ("Qianfeng"), one of the largest plasma-based biopharmaceutical companies in China, located in Guiyang, Guizhou Province, for a total consideration of RMB 194,400,000 (approximately $28.5 million) -- China Biologic successfully raised an aggregate principal amount of $9.6 million through the issuance of 3.8% senior secured convertible notes due 2011 to certain accredited investors led by Essence International Investment Limited Second Quarter of 2009 Results
Revenues for the second quarter of 2009 increased 178.2% to a record $33.2 million, compared to $11.9 million in the second quarter of 2008. The increase in revenues for the second quarter of 2009 is primarily attributable to the revenue consolidation of Dalin, a general increase in the price of plasma-based products, and a 5.2% increase due to foreign exchange translation. During the second quarter of 2009, Dalin contributed to $14.4 million in revenue, or 43.4% of total revenues, an increase of 52.7% from the first quarter of 2009. Taibang accounted for $18.8 million in revenue, or 56.6% of total revenues, an increase of 60.3% from the first quarter of 2009. Revenues, excluding the acquisition of Dalin, increased 57.5% year-over-year, as prior to January 1, 2009, Taibang contributed to 100% of the Company's revenues.
All of the Company's approved products, except human hepatitis B immunoglobulin, recorded price increases ranging from 2.1% to 46.1%. The Company's major plasma-based product, human albumin, contributed to 47.4% of sales in the second quarter of 2009, as compared to 57.8% in same period a year ago. Revenues from human albumin products increased by 128.5%, while the average sales price increased by 2.1%. The Company's human immunoglobulin for intravenous injection product represented 42.6% of revenues in the second quarter of 2009, as compared to 17.4% in the second quarter of 2008; its revenues and average sales price increased by 583.7% and 13.3%, respectively. The Company's human tetanus immunoglobulin products represented 1.0% of revenues in the second quarter of 2009, as compared to 8.6% of the revenues in the second quarter of 2008, its revenue contribution decreased 66.5% and its average sales price increased 46.1%. The approved human rabies immunoglobulin products represented 2.8% of revenue in the second quarter of 2009 compared to 3.6% a year ago, and its revenues and average sales price increased by 116.2% and 37.5%, respectively.
Gross profit for the second quarter of 2009 was $24.0 million, up 189.8% from $8.3 million in the second quarter of 2008. Gross margin was 72.4% for the second quarter of 2009, compared to 69.5% for the second quarter of 2008. The increase in the gross profit margin was primarily associated with general price increase and increase in sales of higher margin products.
Total operating expenses in the second quarter of 2009 rose 125.5% to $7.5 million. Selling expenses increased 118.3% to $1.1 million, compared to $0.5 million in the second quarter of 2008. The increase in selling expenses is primarily due to the consolidation of Dalin's selling activities as well as increased marketing efforts to increase direct sales to new hospitals. As a percentage of sales, selling expenses in the second quarter of 2009 were 3.4%, down from 4.3% a year ago due to the expanded sales following the Dalin acquisition. General and administrative ("G&A") expenses increased 137.4% to $6.0 million. As a percentage of sales, G&A expenses decreased to 18.1% for the second quarter of 2009, from 21.2% for the same period in 2008, primarily due to the expanded sales following the Dalin acquisition. The dollar increase was mainly due to an increase in personnel-related costs and increase in depreciation and amortization expenses in connection with the Company's acquisition of Dalin as result of fair value adjustments, as well as additional professional service charges related to the acquisition of Dalin. The Company also incurred $27,594 in non-cash employee compensation expenses as a result of grants to employees, consultants and directors made under the 2008 Equity Incentive Plan, compared to $1.3 million for the same period in 2008.
Research and development expenses increased 31.5% to $0.4 million, or 1.1% of total revenue compared to $0.3 million in the second quarter of 2008 or 2.3% of total revenue. The dollar increase was due primarily to the consolidation of Dalin and increased costs from continuing clinical trial on new products. Total other expenses in the second quarter of 2009 were $2.3 million. The Company recognized of a loss $1.3 million from the adoption of a new accounting rule effective January 1, 2009, which requires the changes in the fair value of warrants to be recognized in earnings each quarter. No such charge occurred in the second quarter of 2008. The Company recorded a loss of $90,390 in equity income in connection with its 35% equity interest investment in Huitian, the Company's unconsolidated affiliate, compared to a gain of $40,247 in the first quarter of 2009 due to the additional depreciation and amortization expenses arising from assets write-up as a result of the equity investment. Net interest expense was $0.9 million for the second quarter of 2009 compared to an interest income of $846 for the same period in 2008. The increase in interest expense is primarily due to financing related to the acquisition of Dalin.
Provision for income taxes increased 40.4% to $3.0 million for the second quarter of 2009, compared to $2.1 million for the same period last year. The increase in provision for income taxes is mainly due to the consolidation of Dalin, which was offset by the decrease of Taibang's provision for income taxes as Taibang accrued its 2008 taxes at 25% before it was granted a 15% preferential tax rate for the 2008 tax year in early 2009. The effective tax rate for the quarter was 20.9%, as compared to 43.2% in the same period of 2008.
Net income attributable to controlling interest for the second quarter of 2009 was $7.0 million, up 242.7% from $2.0 million in second quarter of 2008. Fully diluted earnings per share were $0.32 for the second quarter of 2009, compared to $0.09 in second quarter of 2008. Compared to the first quarter of 2009, net income attributable to controlling interest which includes the consolidation of Dalin, increased 63.7% from $4.3 million. Non-GAAP net income in the second quarter of 2009 was $8.3 million or $0.38 per fully diluted share, an increase of 151.5% from non-GAAP net income of $3.3 million, or $0.15 per fully diluted share in the second quarter of 2008.*
* Excluding non-cash employee compensation expenses and changes in the fair value of warrants. See "About Non-GAAP Financial Measures" as well as the reconciliation table of non-GAAP net income to GAAP net income at the end of the press release. Six Months Results
For the first six months of 2009, total revenue was $54.3 million, up 174.7% from the first six months of 2008. Revenues excluding the acquisition of Dalin increased 54.4% year-over-year. Gross profit for the first six months of 2009 was $39.0 million, up 174.6% from $14.2 million in the comparable period a year ago. Gross margin of 71.7% remained unchanged from the first quarter of 2008. Income from operations for the period was $26.6 million, up 209.4% from $8.6 million in the first six months of 2008. Net income for the first six months of 2009 was $11.2 million, up 161.0% from $4.3 million in the first six months of 2008. Fully diluted earnings per share were $0.52 for the first six months of 2009 compared to $0.20 in the first six months of 2008. Adjusting for non-cash charges associated with non-cash employee compensation expenses and changes in the fair value of warrants, the non-GAAP net income for the first six months of 2009 was $13.0 million or $0.60 per fully diluted share, an increase of 133.1% from non-GAAP net income of $5.6 million or $0.26 per fully diluted share.
As of June 30, 2009, the Company had $49.5 million in cash, approximately $17.1 million in working capital and a current ratio of 1.3. Shareholder's equity at the end of the second quarter of 2009 was $76.5 million, compared to $42.0 million at the end of 2008. The Company generated $28.4 million in net cash from operating activities for the second quarter of 2009.
In July 2009, China Biologic hosted a forum of industry experts to discuss and provide advice to the Company regarding how to create synergies among its subsidiaries including, the initiation of research and development of new drugs, efficient use of resources among the subsidiaries, quality control procedures during collection, production and distribution processes, and other expert opinions to create long-term, sustainable growth for the Company.
The recent outbreak of the H1N1 flu, known as the swine flu, and the HFMD or known as the hand foot and mouth disease, has further increased the demand for plasma-based products. The Company expects that a pandemic outbreak of the flu could prompt an increase in demand for the Company's human immunoglobulin for intravenous injection ("IVIG") product, which is mainly used for acute infection, autoimmune diseases and other immune deficiencies caused by decreased or abolished antibody production capabilities. During the second quarter of 2009, the Company experienced an unusual increase in the demand for its IVIG product. IVIG, which has a higher gross margin, contributed to over 42% of revenues during the second quarter of 2009, therefore, contributing to a higher percentage increase in revenue compared to the same period last year and from the first quarter of 2009. Continued strong sales of IVIG in 2009 will be dependent on the continued availability of the plasma supply for production and sales.
During the second quarter of 2009, the Company continued to experience a lower percentage of sales for human album representing approximately 47.4%, compared to 57.8% a year ago. Human albumin is relatively easier to produce than other plasma-based products, therefore, yielding a lower gross margin and more competition in the market. Although the percentage of revenue from human album is gradually decreasing with new product sales increasing, the Company expects Human Albumin sales will still remain as the main contributor to the Company's 2009 revenue.
As one of the first plasma based manufacturers to receive GMP certification in 1999 and with increased regulation on the plasma industry, China Biologic has implemented strict quality control procedures over the plasma collection process, manufacturing, and distribution channels in order to ensure that each of the Company's products are safe. Such careful quality control process has been applied to Taibang over the years and has enabled it to produce high quality plasma-based products.
The same quality control process is now gradually being implemented at Dalin's majority owned subsidiary, Qianfeng. During the second quarter of 2009, the Company implemented a comprehensive marketing program to expand Qianfeng's distribution channels via direct sales to hospitals, as compared to Qianfeng's previous strategy to sell largely through distributors.
The Company expects that direct sales to hospitals will lead to lower selling expenses. Moreover, China Biologic believes it can ensure proper storage and handling of the product, further enhancing Qianfeng's quality control procedures.
Despite the State Food and Drug Administration's implementation of a 90-day quarantine period for plasma raw materials, effective July 1, 2008, the Company was ahead of the industry and took measures to minimize the effects of this new regulation. Currently, the Company's inventory level of raw materials is in line with current availability of plasma collection from its own plasma collection stations. Combined, China Biologic's indirect majority-owned subsidiaries have a total plasma collection capacity of greater than 500 metric tons per year. The Company expects to achieve such collection levels under current conditions, assuming no major changes in the Chinese government's regulation on the plasma industry.
With the acquisition of Dalin and the equity investment in Huitian, China Biologic is now the largest non-state owned plasma-based biopharmaceutical company in China. It is expected to have a total market share of approximately 15% based on management's estimate from the products approved for sales by the PRC government.
"We expect the tight supply/demand situation for plasma-based products to persist for some time, which bodes well for our fundamental outlook," remarked Mr. Zhao. "We will, however, continue to focus on a strong research and development efforts aimed at bringing new, higher margin products to market. We will also continue to integrate our acquisitions and work to increase our capacity utilization."
