BEIJING, Nov. 15 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Sinovac Biotech Ltd. (Nasdaq: SVA), a leading developer and provider of vaccines, announced today its unaudited financial results for the three-month and nine-month periods ended September 30, 2009.
 
Financial Highlights
 
·Sales for the third quarter increased 142% to $21.2 million
·Sales for the nine-month period increased 40% to $47.8 million
·Operating income for the third quarter rose 436% to $12.4 million
·Operating income for the nine-month period increased 90% to $23.7 million.
·Net income attributable to the shareholders increased 606% to $5.2 million in the third quarter, with diluted EPS of $0.12
·Cash and cash equivalents at September 30, 2009 was $46.6 million.
 
Business Highlights
 
·In August, Sinovac reported positive top-line results from the completed clinical trial for its internally-developed pandemic influenza A (H1N1) vaccine, PANFLU.1™. The analysis of the clinical trial results showed that Sinovac's H1N1 vaccine induces good immunogenicity after one dose. The seropositive rate, seroconvertive rate and GMT increasing multiple conform to international criteria for vaccines, which indicated PANFLU.1 has a good safety and immunogenicity profile.
 
·In August, Sinovac was selected by the Beijing Public Health Bureau as one of four manufacturers to supply seasonal influenza vaccine to the citizens of Beijing. The Beijing Public Health Bureau completed the bidding process for the purchase of flu vaccines and corresponding services for 2009 on August 26, 2009. Sinovac will supply its seasonal influenza vaccine, Anflu®, pursuant to this agreement.
 
·In September, Sinovac's registration application for its pandemic influenza A (H1N1) vaccine, PANFLU.1™, was approved by the State Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) and a production license was granted. Sinovac received a first purchase order for 3.3 million doses and a second order purchase for 3.0 million doses on September 4 and September 30, respectively, from China's Ministry of Industry and Information Technology for the national purchase plan. In October, Sinovac received a third purchase order for 5.19 million doses. In aggregate, Sinovac has received orders for a total of 11.49 million doses of its PANFLU.1™ vaccine for China's national purchase plan.
 
· In September, Sinovac signed an agreement with Boryung Pharmaceutical Company Limited, a Korean manufacturer of pharmaceuticals, to collaborate on marketing efforts and possible vaccine supply efforts to the government of South Korea for Sinovac's H1N1 vaccine. The agreement followed meetings between Sinovac and the Korean Food and Drug Administration (KFDA) and the Korean Center for Disease Control (KCDC) where Sinovac presented the scientific data of Sinovac's H1N1 vaccine. The collaboration provides Boryung exclusive rights to represent Sinovac in discussions with the KFDA and KCDC in the development of business opportunities in South Korea surrounding Sinovac's H1N1 vaccine.
 
·In October, Sinovac obtained a Certificate of Approval from Mexico's Secretaria de Salud to distribute PANFLU.1 in Mexico. Imperiales S.A. de C.V., a biopharmaceutical company with operations in Mexico since 1935, is the exclusive distributor of Sinovac's vaccine products in the Mexican market, pursuant to a prior distribution agreement signed in 2005 with its affiliate. An application for Anflu was filed in Mexico as well.
 
·In October, Sinovac received the Certificate of Approval to distribute its H5N1 (bird flu) pandemic influenza vaccine in Hong Kong. The Company plans to submit applications in Hong Kong for approval of its PANFLU.1 (H1N1) and Anflu vaccines in the coming months.
 
· In October, Sinovac was selected to supply its seasonal flu vaccine, Anflu®, to the Shanghai government. This marks Sinovac's entry into an additional new public market for its seasonal flu vaccine.
 
· In November, Sinovac was selected among five vaccine manufacturers by the Shanghai Government to supply its hepatitis A vaccine, Healive®, to the public market of Shanghai. Sinovac will supply Healive valued at RMB 20.6 million, or approximately $3 million, pursuant to the purchase order that will be in effect for one year.
 
Mr. Weidong Yin, Chairman, President and CEO of Sinovac, commented, "We are very proud that Sinovac was the first company in the world to develop a vaccine for the H1N1 pandemic flu virus. This achievement was made possible by the Company's focus on its mission to provide Chinese children with the best vaccines in the world, and let children in the world benefit from vaccines made in China. To this end, we have not only acted as a successful provider of H1N1 vaccine to China, but have also made strides toward providing other markets such as South Korea and Mexico with PANFLU.1.
 
"Sinovac has been able to demonstrate its flexibility and agility as a leading vaccine Company by excelling in the rapid development and production of this new product, while, at the same time, also realizing product orders for Anflu and the H5N1 Panflu vaccine, both inside and outside of China. We will continue to leverage our leadership position in the development of the H1N1 vaccine to pursue international marketing opportunities for our entire vaccine portfolio. We will also continue our development efforts to expand our portfolio of marketed vaccines, such as EV71, pneumococcal conjugated vaccine, and rabies, in the coming years."
 
Mr. Yin concluded, "Our strong third quarter results were a testament to our ability to commercialize our H1N1 and H5N1 vaccines. We recorded revenues from doses sold in China and Macau. Given our strong product mix, we were able to maintain our gross profit margin in excess of 80%. With the continued execution of our commercialization strategy, we remain on track to exceed the previously projected full year 2009 revenue range of $55 million to $60 million."
 
Market Overview
The People's Republic of China (PRC) government's expansion program of publicly funded inoculations has driven increased demand for Sinovac's principal product, Healive. Although the gross margin on public sales is lower than on private sales, Sinovac expects to realize volume-related offsetting cost savings and efficiencies.
 
In the current year, Sinovac expects to generate significant revenues from the sale of its H1N1 vaccine; this is expected to be a short-term initiative that will extend through to the end of the influenza season in the spring of 2010. These sales are not expected to be recurring, but demonstrate the Company's ability to develop, manufacture and distribute vaccines on short notice.
 
At the same time, the outbreak of H1N1 pandemic flu appears to have increased the demand for seasonal flu vaccines. It is expected that increasing sales of Anflu will benefit the company over the long-term.
 
Financial Review for Three Months Ended September 30, 2009
 
During the third quarter of 2009, sales were $21.2 million, up 142% from $8.7 million in the third quarter of 2008. During the third quarter of 2009, Sinovac's unit dose sales were:

Sales of the hepatitis A vaccine to the public market (including doses purchased by the Ministry of Health) accounted for 31% of total hepatitis A vaccine sales in the quarter. Sales of Bilive increased significantly during the quarter due to a successful marketing campaign. Sales revenues for 20,000 doses of Panflu (H5N1) to Macau and 586,000 doses of PANFLU.1 (H1N1) were booked during the third quarter of 2009.
 
Gross profit for the third quarter 2009 was $17.5 million, with a gross margin of 83%, compared to $7.1 million and a gross margin of 81%, for the same period of 2008. The gross margin was favorably impacted by the utilization of the Anflu production line to produce PANFLU.1 (H1N1) and Panflu (H5N1). The gross margin for the third quarter of 2009 increased from the gross margin of 81% reported in the third quarter of 2008 due to efficiencies resulting from expanded production volume of Bilive and increased utilization of the flu production line.
 
Total operating expenses for the third quarter of 2009 were $5.1 million, compared to $4.8 million in the comparative period in 2008. Selling, general and administrative expenses for the third quarter of 2009 were $3.5 million, compared to $3.8 million in the same period of 2008. SG&A expenses as a percentage of third quarter 2009 sales decreased to 17%, down from 43% during the prior year. The lower selling and administrative expenses as a percentage of revenue resulted from the increased economies of scale associated with the significant growth of sales.
 
Net research and development expenses for the third quarter 2009 were $1.4 million, compared to $812,000 in the same period of 2008. The increased R&D expenses in the third quarter of 2009 were mainly related to the completion of the H1N1 clinical trial and the continued development of the EV 71 vaccine, pneumococcal conjugated vaccine, and universal pandemic influenza vaccine.
 
Third quarter 2009 operating income was $12.4 million, compared to operating income of $2.3 million in the prior year. Net income for the third quarter of 2009 included $246,000 interest and financing expenses and $3.8 million in income tax expenses. Net income for the same period of 2008 included $190,000 of interest and financing expenses and $911,000 of income tax expenses. Net income attributable to shareholders for third quarter of 2009 was $5.2 million, or $0.12 per diluted share, up 606% compared to net income attributable to shareholders of $740,000, or $0.02 per diluted share, in the same period of 2008.
 
As of September 30, 2009, Sinovac's cash and cash equivalents totaled $46.6 million, compared to $32.9 million as of December 31, 2008. The increase in cash and cash equivalents primarily reflects an advance payment received for a vaccine-stockpiling program.
Financial Review for Nine Months Ended September 30, 2009
 
During the nine months ended September 30, 2009, sales were $47.8 million, up 40% from $34.1 million for the same period in 2008. Sinovac recorded strong revenues growth in the second and third quarters, which greatly improved the Company's performance for the year to date.
 
During the first nine months of 2009, Sinovac's unit dose sales were:

Gross profit for the nine-month period was $38.9 million, with a gross margin of 81%, compared to $28.8 million and a gross margin of 84%, for the prior year period. The gross margin was adversely affected by the lower selling price of Healive vaccine delivered to the Ministry of Health, of which 2.08 million doses was delivered in the second quarter of 2009. Total operating expenses for the first nine months of 2009 were $15.2 million, compared to $16.3 million in the comparative period in 2008.
 
Selling, general and administrative expenses for the first nine months of 2009 were $12.0 million, compared to $13.4 million in the prior year period. SG&A expenses as a percentage of sales decreased to 25%, down from 39% in the comparative period of the prior year. Net research and development expenses for the first nine months of 2009 were $2.8 million, compared to $2.4 million in the prior year period.
 
Operating income for the nine months ended September 30, 2009 was $23.7 million, compared to an operating income of $12.5 million in the prior year period. Net income for the first nine months of 2009 included $571,000 in interest and financing expenses and $6.4 million in income tax expenses. Net income for the same period of 2008 included $747,000 of interest and financing expense and $3.2 million of income tax expense. Net income attributable to shareholders for the first nine months of 2009 was $11.1 million, or $0.26 per diluted share, compared to net income of $5.6 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the same period of 2008.
