Gross margin increased by 25.7 percentage points to 68.4% for the six months ended September 30, 2018 from 42.6% for the same period of the prior fiscal year, thanks to the significant increase in sales of the higher-margin advanced TCMP products.  
  • Net income was $1.00 million, or $0.05 per share, for the six months ended September 30, 2018, compared to $0.79 million, or $0.04 per share, for the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Revenues

We generated revenues primarily from manufacture and sales of three types of traditional Chinese medicine pieces (the "TCMP") products: Advanced TCMP, Fine TCMP and Regular TCMP. For the six months ended September 30, 2018, total revenues increased by $0.03 million, or 0.7%, to $3.92 million from $3.89 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase in total revenues was primarily due to increase in sales of advanced TCMP products that were mostly offset by the decrease in the sales of regular TCMP products.   

Advanced TCMP is comprised of 7 Directly Oral TCMP products (the "Directly-Oral-TCMP") and 6 After-soaking-oral TCMP products (the "After-Soaking-Oral-TCMP"). Both Directly Oral TCMP and After-soaking-oral TCMP are new types of advanced TCMP. Sales of advanced TCMP products increased by $1.15 million, or 117.1%, to $2.12 million for the six months ended September 30, 2018 from $0.98 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase in sales of advanced TCMP products was due to increases in both sales volume and average selling prices.

We currently manufacture 426 regular TCMP products listed on China Pharmacopoeia (version 2015) Part I for hospitals and drug store in treatment of various diseases or serving as dietary supplements. Sales of regular TCMP products decreased by $1.07 million, or 39.9%, to $1.62 million for the six months ended September 30, 2018 from $2.69 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. The decrease in sales of regular TCMP products was primarily related to one single customer.

We currently produce over 20 fine TCMP products for drug stores and hospitals. Our fine TCMP products are manufactured manually from only high-quality authentic ingredients derived from their region of origin. Sales of fine TCMP products decreased by $0.05 million, or 20.3%, to $0.18 million for the six months ended September 30, 2018 from $0.22 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. In order to promote market acceptance of higher priced fine TCMP products, the Company lowered the selling prices for fine TCMP products, however the sales volume did not pick up accordingly, resulting in the decreased sales of fine TCMP products.

Sales of advanced TCMP, fine TCMP ad regular TCMP products accounted for 54.2%, 4.5%, and 41.3% of total revenues, respectively, for the six months ended September 30, 2018, compared to 25.2%, 5.6%, and 69.2%, of total revenues, respectively, for the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Gross profit

Cost of revenues primarily include cost of materials, direct labors, overhead, and other related incidental expenses that are directly attributable to the Company's principal operations. Total cost of goods sold decreased by $0.99 million, or 44.5%, to $1.24 million for the six months ended September 30, 2018 from $2.23 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. The decrease in cost of revenues was primarily due to increased sales of higher margin advanced TCMP products, decrease in purchase price of some key raw materials, as well as savings in labor costs.

Gross profit increased by $1.02 million, or 61.6%, to $2.68 million for the six months ended September 30, 2018 from $1.66 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. Gross margin was 68.4% for the six months ended September 30, 2018, compared to 42.6% for the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Operating income

Selling expenses primarily consisted of transportation, sales staff payroll, welfare expenses, travelling expenses, advertisement and promotion expenses, and distribution expenses. For the six months ended September 30, 2018, selling expenses increased by $0.62 million, or 285.4%, to $0.84 million from $0.22 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase in selling expenses was primarily due to the combined effect of an increase of $0.23 million in distribution expenses as our new clients are more remote and an increase of $0.34 million in advertisement and promotion expenses.

General and administrative expenses primarily consisted of staff payroll and welfare expenses, entertainment expenses, travelling expenses, depreciation and amortization expenses for administrative purposes, and office supply expenses. For the six months ended September 30, 2018, general and administrative expenses increased by $0.12 million, or 30.4%, to $0.51 million from $0.39 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase in general and administrative expenses was related to an increase of $0.07 million in research and development expense and an increase of $0.04 million in intermediate service charge.

As a result, total operating expenses increased by $0.74 million, or 121.1%, to $1.35 million for the six months ended September 30, 2018 from $0.61 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Operating income increased by $0.28 million, or 26.8%, to $1.33 million for the six months ended September 30, 2018 from $1.05 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. Operating margin was 33.9% for the six months ended September 30, 2018, compared to 26.9% for the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase in operating margin was primarily due to increase in gross margin and partially offset by increase in operating expenses as a percentage of revenues.

Income before income taxes

Total net other income, which includes interest income and expenses, and other non-operating income, was $517 for the six months ended September 30, 2018, compared to $3,099 for the same period of the prior fiscal year.

Income before income taxes increased by $0.28 million, or 26.5%, to $1.33 million for the six months ended September 30, 2018 from $1.05 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase was primarily due to increase in gross profit and partially offset by increase in operating expenses.

Provision for income taxes was $0.33 million for the six months ended September 30, 2018, compared to $0.26 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. 

Net income and EPS

Net income increased by $0.21 million, or 26.4%, to $1.00 million for the six months ended September 30, 2018 from $0.79 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year.
