Thecompany guided for 20%-40% YoY growth in Q1-Q316 net profit attributable to theparent company.
Gross margin up sharply, expense ratios higher
Gross margin reached 68.19% in H116, up 4.7ppt from H115 and a relatively highlevel in the company’s history. We believe this was the main reason for faster net profitgrowth than revenue growth. We attribute the high gross margin to falling TCM rawmaterial prices. Expense ratios increased 3.2ppt from H115 and net margin expandedto a historical high of 15.19%. We expect net margin to steadily rise with a higherproduction scale and stabilization of the sales force.
Lianhua Qingwen revenue up fast
In H116, anti-cold drug (the Lianhua Qingwen series) revenue rose 44% YoY toRmb388m, higher than market expectations. We estimate full-year anti-cold drugrevenue at Rmb800m+. Cardiovascular and cerebrovascular drug revenue increased12.6% YoY to Rmb1.38bn in H116. IMS data on sample hospitals shows that thecompany’s Stilbene Li strong heart capsules/Shensong Yangxin capsules/Tongxinluocapsules posted revenue growth of 24%/11.7%/6% YoY in H116, faster than in 2015.Food and beverage revenue was Rmb8.13m in H116.
