Recent Business Highlights

In August 2013, Sinovac (the "Company") was selected by the Beijing Health Bureau as one of the four suppliers to supply the Company's seasonal influenza vaccine, Anflu, to the citizens of Beijing. Sinovac has been chosen as one of the suppliers in the Beijing tender on six separate occasions since 2007. The total volume for the 2013 tender is up to 1.8 million doses and the delivery will depend on the actual demand in Beijing. Under the prior year's tender that totaled up to 1.8 million doses, Sinovac delivered approximately 340,000 doses of Anflu to Beijing citizens. 

In October 2013, Sinovac was selected by the Jiangsu Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as one of the two suppliers of inactivated hepatitis A vaccine to the pediatric population in the Jiangsu province for its 2014 Expanded Program of Immunization (or EPI program). According to the tender award contract, the tender totals 1.8 million doses of inactivated hepatitis A vaccine, and Sinovac will supply 900,000 doses of Healive.

Mr. Weidong Yin, Chairman, President and CEO, commented, "We are pleased to see another strong quarter with revenue growth of 54.5% year-over-year, which resulted in another profitable quarter on a sequential quarterly basis. With continued execution of the tailored sales strategy, Anflu sales was increased by 121% in this quarter compared to the same period of 2012, resulted from a solid support from operation. Leveraging the improved efficiency and expanded capacity of our fully operational Changping filling and packaging line, we delivered the majority of the flu vaccine that we produced at the beginning of the seasonal flu season."

Mr. Yin concluded, "Our vaccine development pipeline is continuing to advance on schedule. The China Food and Drug Administration ("CFDA") issued new guidance in late October 2013 enabling applicants to apply for Good Manufacturing Practice ("GMP") certification for its production facilities concurrently with the production site inspection during the New Drug Application ("NDA") review process, instead of waiting until after the new drug certificate is granted to commence the GMP certification process. Sinovac is poised to benefit from the agency's revised guidance, which may accelerate the entire registration process for vaccine candidates, including EV71 vaccine."

*Regular sales represent sales revenue generated by all commercialized products, excluding Panflu (H5N1) vaccine and Panflu.1 (H1N1) vaccine, which are produced when government issues stockpiling orders

Total sales increased by 54.5% to $22.1 million in the third quarter 2013 from $14.3 million in the third quarter of 2012. Excluding the $3.6 million H5N1 vaccine revenue recognized in the third quarter of 2013, regular sales increased by 29.5% to $18.5 million from $14.3 million in the third quarter 2012.

The growth was mainly driven by robust sales of Anflu in the third quarter of 2013 given that Sinovac's seasonal influenza vaccine was commercialized in a timely manner at the beginning of the 2013 flu season compared with the prior year, benefiting from the improved efficiency and expanded capacity of the fully operational Changping filling and packaging line.

Gross profit increased by 111.7% to $15.9 million in the third quarter of 2013 from $7.5 million in the same period of 2012. Gross margin was 72.1% in the third quarter of 2013, compared to 52.6% in the same period of 2012. The higher gross margin was primarily due to increased Anflu gross margin because a lower sales return provision as well as inventory provision was recorded and less excess capacity was charged to cost of goods sold in the third quarter of 2013, compared to the same period of 2012.

SG&A expenses in the third quarter of 2013 were $9.9 million, compared to $7.8 million in the same period of 2012. Selling expenses as a percentage of the third quarter 2013 regular sales were 32.0%, compared to 28.7% in the same period of 2012. The increase in selling expenses as a percentage of revenue was mainly due to the increased marketing efforts to generate Anflu sales this quarter.

G&A expenses in the third quarter of 2013 increased to $4.0 million from $3.7 million in the same period of 2012. The increase was mainly due to higher operating costs at the Company's Changping site as it is now fully operational. These increases were partially offset by the decrease of bonuses due to the board of directors approving certain employee bonuses to be settled from the Company's Staff Bonus and Welfare Fund, an accrued liability account, rather than charged to expense.

R&D expenses in the third quarter of 2013 decreased to $2.0 million from $3.8 million in the same period of 2012. The lower R&D expenses in the current quarter were attributable to the completion of the phase III study of EV71 vaccine candidate in the first quarter of 2013.

Depreciation of property, plant and equipment and amortization of licenses, permits and renovation costs for the third quarter of 2013 was $0.8 million, compared to $0.4 million in the same period of 2012. Depreciation increased primarily due to more assets at the Changping facility starting to be depreciated in the fourth quarter of 2012, compared to the comparative period.

Net income attributable to stockholders in the third quarter of 2013 was $2.3 million, or $ 0.04 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $3.0 million, or $0.05 per basic and diluted share, in the same period of 2012. If the $0.3 million bonus, settled from the accrued liability account, was charged to operation in third quarter of 2013, the net income of the third quarter of 2013 was approximately $2.0 million, or $0.04 per basic share and diluted share.

*Regular sales represent sales revenue generated by all commercialized products, excluding Panflu (H5N1) vaccine and Panflu.1 (H1N1) vaccine, which are produced when government issues stockpiling orders.

Total sales of the first nine months of 2013 were $49.6 million, a 67.4% increase from $29.6 million in the same period of 2012, and exceeded full year 2012 sales by $363,000. Excluding the $3.6 million H5N1 vaccines revenue recognized, regular sales increased by 55.3% to $46.0 million. The increased revenue was driven by the Anflu sales growth in the third quarter as well as Healive growth in the first half of the year.

Gross profit for the first nine months of 2013 increased by 90.2% to $36.6 million from $19.2 million in the same period of 2012. Gross margin was 73.7%, compared to 64.9% in the same period of 2012. The higher gross margin was primarily due to increase of gross margin of Anflu and Healive with lower sales return provision recorded and less excess capacity charged to cost of goods sold in the third quarter of 2013, compared to the same period of 2012.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first nine months of 2013 were $24.6 million, compared to $18.9 million in the same period of 2012. Selling expenses as a percentage of 2013 nine months regular product sales was 31.6%, compared to 33.5% of the same period of last year. The decrease in selling expense as a percentage of regular product sales was mainly due to the higher sales achieved without significantly increasing the sales team headcount and salaries. G&A expenses in the first nine months of 2013 increased to $10.0 million from $8.9 million in the same period of last year. The factors affecting general and administrative expenses in the nine months of 2013 were the same as for the third quarter of 2013 as described above.

Research and development expenses for the first nine months of 2013 decreased to $5.9 million from $15.8 million in the same period of last year as the phase III study of EV71 vaccine candidate was completed in the first quarter of 2013.

Depreciation of property, plant and equipment and amortization of licenses, permits and renovation costs in the first nine months of 2013 was $2.1 million, compared to $1.1 million in the same period of last year. Depreciation increased because more assets at the Changping facility started to be depreciated in the last quarter of 2012.

Net income attributable to stockholders in the first nine months of 2013 was $1.6 million, or $0.03 per basic and diluted share, compared to a net loss of $10.2 million, or $0.19 per basic and diluted share, in the same period of last year. If the $1.7 million bonus, settled from an accrued liability account, was charged to operations for the nine-month period, the net loss of the first nine months of 2013 was $0.1 million, or $0.002 per basic share and diluted share.

As of September 30, 2013, cash and cash equivalents totaled $89.0 million, compared to $91.2 million as of December 31, 2012. Net cash used in operating activities was $14.7 million in the first nine months of 2013. Net cash used in investing activities was $3.4 million in the first nine months of 2013, which was mainly to acquire property, plant and equipment for the Changping facility. Net cash provided by financing activities was $15.0 million in the first nine months of 2013, including loan proceeds of $13.9 million
