Third Quarter 2011 Financial Results

Revenues

Revenues for the three months ended September 30, 2011 were $5.69 million, compared with $5.46 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010.

  • Sales of self-branded and third party medical devices, including technical service products, decreased 3% to $4.2 million, or 74% of total revenue, compared with $4.3 million, or 79% of revenue in the same period a year ago. The micro sales decrease was due to the adjustment of the company's development strategy and business focus. The sales increase in the technical service segment was primarily related to the increased acceptance of Dehaier's air compressor among hospitals and other healthcare facilities
  • Homecare products revenue increased 33% to $1.49 million, or 26% of total revenue, compared to $1.12 or 21% in the third quarter of 2010. The increase in sales from homecare products was primarily attributable to additional market penetration and expansion of Dehaier's homecare products.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2011 were $2.4 million, compared with $2.3 million in the three months ended September 30, 2010.

Operating expenses consisting of selling expenses and general and administrative expenses, were $790,000, an increase of 11%, compared with $710,000 for the same period a year ago. In addition to the business expansion, the increase in operating expenses was primarily due to a 12% increase in G&A expenses associated with increased R&D related to clinical testing of oxygen and respiratory products and R&D of the second generation products, and expenses associated with being a publicly traded company, including expenses on hiring professional employees and retained professional consulting firms, and a 13% increase in selling expenses for marketing,
