Sinovac Biotech, a leading developer and provider of vaccines in China, announced that during the six-months ended June 30, 2009, sales were $26.6 million, up 4.7 percent from $25.4 million for the same period in 2008. Sinovac recorded a strong second quarter, which greatly improved its performance for the year to date. The company noted that the gross profit for the six-month period was $21.4 million, with a gross margin of 80%, compared to $21.7 million and a gross margin of 86%, for the prior year period. The gross margin was adversely affected by the lower selling price of the 2 million doses of hepatitis A vaccine sold to Ministry of Health in the second quarter of 2009. Total operating expenses for the first six months of 2009 were $10.0 million, compared to $11.6 million in the comparative period in 2008. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first six months of 2009 were $8.4 million, compared to $9.6 million in the prior year period. SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales decreased to 32 percent, down from 38 percent in the comparative period. Net research and development expenses for the first six-months of 2009 were $1.3 million, compared to $1.6 million in the prior year period. Operating income for the six-months ended June 30, 2009 was $11.3 million, compared to an operating income of $10.2 million in the prior year period. Net income for the first six months of 2009 included $159,000 in net interest and financing expenses and $2.6 million in income tax expenses. Net income for the same period of 2008 included $653,000 of net interest expense and $2.3 million of income tax expense. Net income for the first six months of 2009 was $5.8 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, compared to net income of $4.9 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, in the same period of 2008. Mr. Weidong Yin, Chairman, President and CEO of Sinovac, said, \"We remain very excited about our growth prospects for 2009 and beyond. In addition to the H1N1 vaccine, we have a robust pipeline of other investigational vaccines, including enterovirus 71 (EV 71), pneumococcal conjugated vaccine, and Japanese encephalitis. Overall, our objective for the next three to five years is to have one or two product candidates per year entering into clinical trials beginning in 2010 and one or two products launched into the market per year commencing in 2012. In addition to our organic growth strategy, we have the financial flexibility to selectively pursue acquisition candidates that will help to expand our product pipeline, due to $47 million of cash and cash equivalents on our balance sheet. Previously, we projected revenues of $55 million to $60 million for the full year 2009. Based largely on expected demand for our H1N1 vaccine, we believe that our 2009 revenues will exceed expectations. However, due to uncertainty on the timing of future orders, we are not able to further quantify our expectations.
