China YCT International Group Reports Financial Results for the Fiscal Quarter Ended June 30, 2018

JINING, China, Aug. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — China YCT International Group, Inc. (OTCQB: CYIG) (the “Company”) today announced its financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2018.

  • Total revenues increased by 21.9% year-over-year to $20.89 million with growth in sales from both acer truncatum seed oil and Huoliyuan capsules. The increase in revenues also benefitted from favorable exchange rate between RMB to US$ compared to a year ago.
  • Overall gross margin was 42.7%, compared to 40.0% for the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase in overall gross margin was mainly due to higher gross margin for acer truncatum seed oil as a result of decreased raw material, packaging and manufacturing costs.
  • Net income attributable to the Company was $4.49 million, or $0.15 per share, compared to $3.81 million, or $0.13 per share, for the same period of the prior fiscal year.

“We started the new fiscal year on a high note with revenues and net income increasing by 21.9% and 17.8%, respectively, for the first fiscal quarter that ended June 30, 2018. Gross and operating margins also increased on a year-over-year basis. The acer truncatum seed oil segment was particularly strong, with revenues growing by 81.3% to $5.25 million. Gross margin for acer truncatum seed oil also reached record level of 60.5% for the fiscal quarter ended June 30, 2018,” said Mr. Tinghe Yan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company.

“As our order trend suggests continuing growth momentum, we are optimistic about the near-term outlook of our business and believe that we can extend our streak of five consecutive years of top-line growth in fiscal year 2019,” concluded Mr. Yan.

Revenues

For the three months ended June 30, 2018, total revenues increased by $3.75 million, or 21.9%, to $20.89 million from $17.13 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase in total revenues was mainly due to increase in sales for acer truncatum seed oil and also benefited from RMB appreciation versus US$ compared to a year ago.

Revenues from health care products increased by $0.17 million, or 2.1%, to $8.01 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 from $7.85 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. The revenue from sales of health care products measured in RMB decreased by 5.0% but was offset by a 7.1% increase due to favorable US currency exchange rates. The decrease in sales of the health care products in RMB was primarily due to decreases in sales of other traditional health care products. 

Revenues from Huoliyuan capsules increased by $1.24 million, or 19.3%, to $7.63 million  for the three months ended June 30, 2018 from $6.40 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase in sales of Huoliyuan capsules was primarily due to improved market share performance.

Revenues from acer truncatum seed oil increased by $2.35 million, or 81.3%, to $5.25 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018 from $2.89 million for the same period of the prior fiscal year. The increase in sales of acer truncatum seed oil was primarily due to continuing promotions of acer truncatum seed oil at conferences highlighting features and benefits of the product to our distributors and customers. Since July 2015, the Company has produced and sold acer truncatum seed oil extracted from the acer truncatum pods purchased from third party vendors. Our crops of acer truncatum pods will not be ready for production until approximately the fall of 2018. 

The sales of health care products, Huoliyuan capsules, and acer truncatum Parliament seed oil accounted for 38.3%, 36.5%, and 25.1%, respectively, of total revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2018 , compared to 45.8%, 37.3%, and 16.9%, respectively, for the same period of the prior fiscal year.
