China YCT International Group Reports Fiscal Year 2018 Financial Results

SISHUI COUNTY, CHINA / ACCESSWIRE / June 29, 2018 / China YCT International Group, Inc. (OTCQB: CYIG) (the "Company) today announced its financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018.

  • Total revenues increased by 15.0% year-over-year to $64.94 million with growth in sales across all three product categories: acertruncatumbunge seed oil, health care products and Huoliyuan capsule.
  • Overall gross margin was 39.0% for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, compared to 41.1% for the prior fiscal year. The decrease in overall gross margin was mainly related to the lower gross margin for Huoliyuan capsules as a result of increased raw material and manufacturing costs.
  • Net income attributable to the Company was $11.39 million, or $0.38 per share, for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, compared to $10.8 million, or $0.34 per share, for the prior fiscal year.

Mr. Tinghe Yan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, "With revenue growth of 30.4%, 4.3% and 11.0% for healthcare products, Huoliyuan capsules, and acertruncatumbunge seed oil, respectively, our financial results for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018 highlighted continued strength in our businesses across the board. This also marked our fifth consecutive year of steady top-line growth - no mean feat for our dedicated team."

"As we will start to harvest acertruncatum seeds at our own planting bases starting this fall and launch the commercial production of blended edible oil products using acertruncatum seed oil as a key ingredient, we are excited about the long-term outlook of our business and looking forward to extending our growth streak for fiscal year 2019 and beyond," concluded Mr. Yan.

The increase in sales of health care products was primarily due to the growth of our customer base as well as the contribution from Internet direct-sales.

Our self-grown acertruncatum pods will not be ready to be used for production until approximately the fall of 2018.

As a percentage of revenues, total cost of goods sold was 61.0% for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, compared to 58.9% for the prior fiscal year.

Research and development expenses were $0.49 million for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, compared to $0.81 million for the prior fiscal year.
