Sales for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 was $14.4 million, a decrease of 40.6% as compared to $24.9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2011. The decrease was predominately due to 1) competitive industry with wide generic pricing pressure, 2) restrictive government policies to prioritize the Essential Drug List (EDL) drug sales that simultaneously reduce and negatively impact the sales and margins of our higher margined generic pharmaceuticals, 3) seasonality from the Chinese New Year, which negatively effected sales in the period, and 4) during the prior period, a rise in demand as a result of inventory accumulation by our sales channels prior to the enforcement of healthcare reform polices a year earlier.

For the remainder of fiscal 2012, we expect our generic portfolio and our TMT distributions to continue witness flat to slightly rising growth as a result of the current pricing restrictions from the healthcare reform policies.

Our Jiangchuan macrolide (JCM) facility has begun the ramp up of the production capacity after initial readjustment of the production efficiency during the third quarter of fiscal 2012. We project for the fourth quarter fiscal 2012, JCM facility to reach approximately 50% production capacity or 10 tons per month. We further expect that JCM facility to increase its capacity to 80% by the end of 2012 or close to 200 tons annual capacity. 

Our top five product sales are: Gingko mihuan oral liquic (GMOL): $2.6 million; Apu Shuanxin benorylate granules (APU): $0.90 million; Azithromycin tablets (AZI): $0.52 million; Xuelian Chongcao oral liquid (XLCC): $0.65 million; and Qingre Jiedu oral liquid (QR): $0.40 million. These products totaled $5.1 million in sales, representing 35% of the quarterly revenue.

Cost of Sales for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 was $9.5 million or 66.5% of sales, as compared to $14.0 million or 56.4% of sales for the quarter ended March 31, 2011. The percentage increase in our cost of sales from the previous period was mainly due to: 1) generic pricing pressure, 2) an increase as a total percentage of sales from the TMT distribution business, which amounted to $3.2 million at 10% gross margin.

Gross Margin for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 was 33.5% as compared to 43.6% for the quarter ended March 31, 2011. Our organic product portfolio delivered 41.1% gross margins, or 10.3% lower than our 51.4% for the respective prior period.  As a result of a mix of the lower margin distribution revenue and gross margin reduction under the current pricing environment, we expect that our overall gross margin in the near term, on a quarter to quarter comparison basis, may trend lower, but on a sequential basis may stabilize depending upon the revenue mix of our TMT revenue and JCM revenue as compared to the proprietary portfolio's revenue performance.

Operating Expenses were $3.5 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, as compared to $5.8 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2011. The decrease in operating expenses is mainly associated with the lower sales and marketing costs.

Net Income was $0.9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2012, as compared to net income of $4.1 million which includes $0.35 million non-cash gain due to the gain in fair value of warrants liability for the quarter ended March 31, 2011, a decrease of $3.1 million. Net profit margins for the three months ended March 31, 2012 decreased to 6.2% from 14.9% for the three months ended March 31, 2011. This is a result of the sales decrease along with the gross margin compression during the quarter.

Diluted earnings per share for the quarter ended March 31, 2012 were $0.03 based on 29.2 million shares compared with the earnings of $0.14 per diluted share for the quarter ended March 31, 2011, based on 29.8 million shares.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow

As of March 31, 2012, we had cash and cash equivalents of $29.9 million. Net cash generated from operating activities was $4.8 million for the nine months ended March 31, 2012, compared with $12.2 million operating cash flow for the nine months ended March 31, 2011. The Days Sale Outstanding (DSO) for the quarter was 24.5 days improving from 38.7 days for the quarter ended March 31, 2011. We believe that TPI is adequately funded to meet all of the working capital and capital expenditure needs for fiscal 2012.

Business Development & Outlook

R&D for additional indications of flagship product Gingko Mihuan (GMOL)

Our flagship product Gingko Mihuan Oral Liquid (GMOL, SFDA certification number: H20013079; patent number: 20061007800225) contributes to more than 30% of our total revenue. Clinical application and information gathered from our physicians showed that in addition to our approved indication for the usage of GMOL: cardiovascular disorders, coronary heart disease and cerebral ischemic attack including strokes, Off-label use of GMOL have been indicated in hepatic diseases and ophthalmological diseases. The validity and mechanisms of these observations are being investigated in a number of hospitals.

Under the ongoing healthcare reform policy that favors the sale of EDL drugs in China, the national or provincial EDL listing could substantially support the market development of these products. Recently, GMOL has been selected as an EDL drug in both Henan and Shandong province (with a combined population of approximately 200 million) EDL provincial supplementary lists. The EDL status grants a full insurance coverage or 100% government reimbursement for patients.

Jiangchuan Macrolide Project (JCM)

TPI has completed the 240-ton JCM facility for the R&D, manufacturing and sale of API and chemical intermediates of macrolide antibiotics. In January 2012, following a series of the internal quality assessment and the environmental safety and impact assessment, JCM was approved for its GMP certification designated as "CHUAN M0799," which is valid for the period of December 31, 2011 until December 31, 2015. The JCM underwent efficiency improvement and calibration for large scale production for the initial three months of operation. TPI targets 80% production capacity by the end of June 2012. TPI will utilize about 40% of the Azithromycin raw material manufactured from JCM.   

Tianyin Medicine Trading Distribution Business (TMT)

TMT is established to distribute products manufactured by both TPI and other pharmaceutical companies to fuel our expanding sales network as well as to provide synergy to our existing organic product portfolio. TMT has been distributing mainly TPI's own products since its inception in 2009. We have obtained one-year distribution rights from Jiangsu Lianshui Pharmaceutical ("Lianshui") to distribute approximately 15 Lianshui-branded generic injection products including cough suppressant, antibiotics, anti-inflammatory medicines and other healthcare indications. On average, TMT distribution revenue contributed approximately $3-5 million sales per quarter to our total revenue.

Pre-extraction and formulation plant development at Qionglai Facility (QLF)

In preparation for the new Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) standards stipulated by the PRC government in early 2011, TPI initiated the process of optimizing the manufacturing facilities and production lines in compliance with the new GMP standards by 2013. Concurrently, the city of Chengdu has re-designated various industrial parks for particular industries such as automobile, biotechnologies, pharmaceuticals and chemical engineering. As a consequence, TPI's current manufacturing facility at the Longquan district, east of Chengdu, which is designated for use by the automotive industry, is scheduled to be relocated to Qionglai city, south of Chengdu, which is designated for use by the pharmaceutical industry. The Qionglai facility (QLF) is approximately 18 miles from the Company's recently completed JCM facility. The proposed relocation project also includes our TCM pre-extraction plant, which is located near the center of city of Chengdu, a rapidly expanding residential area.

The QLF is estimated to be 80 mu or 53,000 sqm. Both pre-extraction plant and the formulation plant are to be relocated. The combined QLF plant, designed and constructed according to the latest GMP standards, is expected to relieve the current capacity saturation at TPI's facilities. The re-location and construction cost is estimated at $25 million for Phase I which, when completed in the end of calendar year 2012, will expand the current capacity by 30%. For Phase II of the QLF project, an additional $10 million in capital investment may be made to double the current capacity by calendar year 2013 if the Company determines the demand is required.

In early February 2012 after an initial planning stage, our QLF relocation project officially began. Our pre-extraction plant will be relocated during Phase I of the QLF project. 

Fiscal Year 2012 Financial Guidance

As a result of the current pricing restriction by the healthcare reform policies of the government along with the rippling effect of the highly competitive market environment for our generic portfolio, we revised our fiscal 2012 revenue guidance from $100 million to $66 million and our net income guidance from $10 million to $6.5 million. Our revised estimated projection is based upon several factors including but not limited to the following:

  1. A delay in our JCM revenue ramp up estimated to occur in the second half of 2012;
  2. Reduced generic sales as a result of pricing restrictions and healthcare reform policies recently undertaken by the government that was only partially offset from the steady revenue stream of our flagship product portfolio;
  3. Flat but steady TMT distribution revenue. 

Management will continue to evaluate the Company's business outlook and communicate any changes on a quarterly basis or as when appropriate.
