Full Year 2012 Results (unaudited)

Sales: Sales for the year ended December 31, 2012 were approximately $52 million, an increase of approximately $7.8 million, or 18%, from approximately $44.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. The increase in sales was primarily due to an increase in sales of Xuesaitong, the Company's main product, and an increase of $871,053 in revenue from Zhonghuang Hotel, which was designed as per four-star hotel standards and operated by the Company since January of 2011.

Cost of sales: Our cost of sales for the year ended December 31, 2012 was approximately $23.5 million, an increase of approximately $6.5 million, or 38%, from approximately $17.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. The increase in cost of sales was due to the increase in sales volume together with increases in the costs of purchasing Sanqi, the principal raw material of our main product Xuesaitong. Although we started to grow our own captive sources of Sanqi in 2011, we will not be able to harvest our own Sanqi until 2014 because it has a three year growth cycle. In addition, the Zhonghuang Hotel has contributed $1.8 million to the cost of sales.

Gross profit: Our gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2012 was approximately $28.5 million compared with approximately $27.2 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. Gross profit as a percentage of revenues was approximately 54.9% for the year ended December 31, 2012, a decrease of 6.6% from 61.5% for the year ended December 31, 2011. The decrease in gross profit percentage was primarily due to the increase in cost of sales set forth above.

Selling expenses: Selling expenses were approximately $24.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, an increase of approximately $4.9 million, or 24%, from approximately $19.8 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. The primary reason for the increase in selling expenses was due to an increase in sales commission to sales representatives due to higher sales volumes.

We reimburse our sales representatives for selling and marketing expenses when they submit the appropriate documentation. We reimburse our sales representatives for their accrued selling expenses when related accounts receivable are collected.

General and administrative expenses: General and administrative expenses were approximately $5.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2012, an increase of approximately $0.1 million, or 2%, from approximately $5.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. The increase was mainly due to increased travel expense and expenses related to the commencement of operations in 2012 by Shilin Shenghuo Pharmaceutical Co., a subsidiary of the Company engaged in the business of medicinal herb planting and wellness tourism.

Research and development expenses: Research and development expense for the year ended December 31, 2012 was approximately $0.63 million as compared to approximately $0.71 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. The decrease was primarily due to an absence of clinical testing expenses for Sh1002 in America in 2012. We conducted Phase I clinical tests of Sh1002 in America in 2011 but did not proceed with Phase II testing in 2012.

Net other expense: Net other expense, which includes interest income, subsidy income, interest expense, other income and other expense, was approximately $1.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 as compared to approximately $1.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2011, a decrease of approximately $0.4 million, or 27%. The decrease was mainly due to an increase in subsidy income from the provincial government as compared to the same period in 2011 and less interest expenses in 2012.

Income tax benefit: Income tax benefit was $494,313 for the year ended December 31, 2012 as compared to income tax benefit $11,765 for the year ended December 31, 2011. The tax benefit was mainly from the medicine business of the Company, deferred tax benefits from accrued expenses and provisions for inventory.

Net (loss) income attributable to stockholders: We incurred a net loss attributable to stockholders of approximately $2.5 million for the year ended December 31, 2012 as compared to net income attributable to stockholders of approximately $0.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2011. The net loss attributable to stockholders was primarily due to the increase of cost of sales described above.
