"Looking ahead, we expect an increase in the number of newborn babies in 2018, yet consumer discretionary spending will continue to be constrained. To further grow our subscription base and penetrate markets, we will utilize new media and marketing methods to continue improving new subscriber awareness of the value of cord blood storage. Meanwhile, the management team will proactively explore various cooperation and business opportunities to best serve our clients' maternal needs throughout the prenatal and postnatal periods. In doing so, we will leverage our existing resources and core competencies to develop more comprehensive preventive healthcare measures."

Fourth Quarter of Fiscal 2017 Financial Results

REVENUES. Revenues in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 increased by 28.8% to RMB202.0 million ($29.3 million) from RMB156.8 million in the prior year period, mainly driven by an increase in new subscribers backed by strong growth in the Guangdong market. The strong year-over-year growth rate was also partly attributable to the relatively low comparison base in the prior year period.

20,566 new subscriber sign-ups were recorded during the reporting quarter, representing 42.1% year-over-year growth and factoring in the low comparison base of the prior year period. Revenues generated from processing fees in the fourth quarter increased by 40.3% to RMB130.2 million ($18.9 million) from RMB92.8 million in the prior year period. As a percentage of revenues, revenues generated from processing fees accounted for 64.4%, compared to 59.2% in the prior year period.

Revenues generated from storage fees increased to RMB71.8 million ($10.4 million), up 12.2% from RMB64.0 million in the prior year period. The Company's accumulated subscriber base reached 575,0401 by the end of March 2017. Storage fees accounted for 35.6% of the total revenues, compared to 40.8% in the prior year period.

GROSS PROFIT. Gross profit for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 increased to RMB161.0 million ($23.4 million) from RMB122.2 million in the prior year period, a year-on-year growth of 31.8%. Gross margin was 79.7% in the reporting quarter, up from 77.9% in the prior year period. Higher revenue and economy of scale lifted the gross margin.

OPERATING INCOME. Operating income for the fourth quarter increased by 42.0% to RMB56.3 million ($8.2 million), compared to RMB39.7 million in the prior year period. Top line growth was partially offset by increased sales and marketing efforts but still fueled operating margin expansion from 25.3% in the prior year period to 27.9% in the reporting quarter. Depreciation and amortization expenses for the fourth quarter were RMB12.6 million ($1.8 million), compared to RMB12.4 million in the prior year period. Share-based compensation expense was RMB15.7 million ($2.3 million), compared to RMB15.1 million in the prior year period. The increase of share-based compensation expense was mainly attributable to the depreciation of Renminbi against U.S. dollar. Operating income before depreciation and amortization and share-based compensation expenses increased by 26.1% to RMB84.7 million ($12.3 million) from RMB67.1 million in the prior year period.2

Research and Development Expenses. Research and development expenses amounted to RMB3.2 million ($0.5 million) compared to RMB2.3 million in the prior year period.

Sales and Marketing Expenses. Sales and marketing expenses for the fourth quarter amounted to RMB53.7 million ($7.8 million), compared to RMB37.2 million in the prior year period. The increase was mainly attributable to an additional performance incentive of RMB5.2 million ($0.8 million) for the contribution of the Guangdong sales team and to a lesser extent, additional promotion expense relating to a new marketing campaigns on social media. As a percentage of revenues, sales and marketing expenses were 26.6%, compared to 23.7% in the prior year period.

General and Administrative Expenses. General and administrative expenses for the fourth quarter increased modestly to RMB47.8 million ($6.9 million) from RMB43.0 million in the prior year period while decreased by 5.5% quarter-over-quarter from RMB50.6 million in the prior quarter. During the three months ended March 31, 2017, the Company recorded a RMB1.0 million ($0.1 million) write-off of accounts receivable because the recoverability of 268 private cord blood banking subscribers was considered low. As a percentage of revenues, general and administrative expenses were 23.7%, down from 27.4% in the prior year period.

OTHER INCOME AND EXPENSES.

Interest Expense. Interest expense was mainly related to the Company's outstanding convertible notes. In the reporting quarter, the Company incurred interest expense of RMB30.2 million ($4.4 million), compared to RMB28.0 million in the prior year period. The increase was due to the compounding interest effect of the convertible notes and the translation difference arising from the depreciation of Renminbi against U.S. dollar. Subsequent to the end of the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017, all outstanding convertible notes were converted into an aggregate of 40,521,494 ordinary shares.

INCOME TAX (EXPENSE)/BENEFIT. Income tax benefit of RMB3.9 million ($0.6 million) was recorded in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 as a result of the reversal of provision for income tax of RMB18.2 million ($2.6 million) made in the reporting quarter. Excluding the effect of the reversal, income tax expense was RMB14.3 million ($2.1 million), compared to RMB8.6 million in the prior year period.

NET INCOME ATTRIBUTABLE TO THE COMPANY'S SHAREHOLDERS. Net income attributable to the Company's shareholders for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 increased to RMB37.9 million ($5.5 million) from RMB8.2 million in the prior year period. Net margin for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 increased to 18.8% from 5.3% in the prior year period.

EARNINGS PER SHARE. Basic and diluted earnings per ordinary share for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 were RMB0.45 ($0.07)5, up from RMB0.18 in the prior year period.

LIQUIDITY. As of March 31, 2017, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of RMB3,510.3 million ($510.0 million), up from RMB3,008.4 million as of March 31, 2016. The Company had total debt6 of RMB1,031.2 million ($149.8 million) as of March 31, 2017. Net cash provided by operating activities for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2017 amounted to RMB200.5 million ($29.1 million).

Full Year of Fiscal 2017 Financial Results

For the full year of fiscal 2017, total revenues increased by 14.6% to RMB760.0 million ($110.4 million) from RMB663.0 million in the prior year. The increase was mainly attributable to the growth in processing and storage revenues contributed by the increased new subscriber number of 74,952 for the reporting fiscal year and the enlarged subscriber base of 575,0401 as of March 31, 2017. Revenues from processing fees and storage fees grew by 14.8% and 14.3%, respectively.

Gross profit increased by 19.1% to RMB617.3 million ($89.7 million) from RMB518.4 million in the prior year as a result of revenue growth and a recognition of RMB16.8 million ($2.4 million) consideration from consultation services related to the usage of cord blood processing devices and consumables, which was recorded as a reduction of direct costs.

Operating income increased to RMB264.9 million ($38.5 million) from RMB191.3 million in the prior year, a year-on-year increase of 38.4%, attributed to a higher gross profit and other operating income of RMB26.3 million ($3.8 million) from a public bank collaboration project, which was partially offset by the increased operating expenses. Operating income before depreciation and amortization and share-based compensation expenses increased by 25.8% to RMB377.6 million ($54.9 million) from RMB300.2 million in the prior year.2

Combining the effects of increased operating income and lower income tax expenses, which was driven by the reversal of provision for income tax and partially offset by lower dividend income, net income attributable to the Company's shareholders increased by 38.7% to RMB126.2 million ($18.3 million) from RMB91.0 million in the prior year.

Basic and diluted earnings per share attributable to ordinary shares were RMB1.59 ($0.23), compared to RMB1.25 in the prior year.

Net cash provided by operating activities in the full year of fiscal 2017 increased to RMB637.6 million ($92.6 million) from RMB581.0 million in the prior year.

Recent Developments

  • On April 6, 2017, the holder of all outstanding convertible notes converted such securities in ordinary shares of the Company at a conversion price of $2.838 per share. The conversion resulted in an issuance of 40,521,494 ordinary shares of the Company. Subsequent to such conversion, the Company has no outstanding convertible notes.
  • On April 13, 2017, the Board of Directors (the "Board") adopted the recommendation of the special committee of independent directors (the "Special Committee"), formed to evaluate the previously announced proposal received from Golden Meditech Holdings Limited ("Golden Meditech"), pursuant to which Golden Meditech proposed to acquire all of the outstanding ordinary shares of the Company not already directly or indirectly owned by Golden Meditech, to terminate any further evaluation and negotiation regarding such proposal.  In making its recommendation, the Special Committee had taken into account various factors including but not limited to the pending acquisition transaction between an affiliate of Golden Meditech and Nanjing Ying Peng Hui Kang Medical Industry Investment Partnership (limited partnership) ("NJYP"), pursuant to which an affiliate of Golden Meditech has conditionally agreed to sell to NJYP an approximate 65.4% equity interest in the Company on a fully diluted basis for RMB5.764 billion in cash, NJYP's future plans regarding the Company after the acquisition is completed and the overall viability of the proposal. The Special Committee's recommendation was unanimous and the adoption of its recommendation by the full Board of the Company was unanimous, with the chairman Mr. Yuen Kam abstaining.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

GAAP results for the three months and year ended March 31, 2017 include non-cash items related to the depreciation and amortization and share-based compensation expenses. To supplement the Company's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements presented on a U.S. GAAP basis, the Company has provided adjusted financial information excluding the impact of these items in this press release. The non-GAAP financial measure represents non-GAAP operating income. Such adjustment is a departure of U.S. GAAP; however, the Company's management believes that these adjusted measures provide investors with a better understanding of how the results relate to the Company's historical performance. Also, management uses non-GAAP operating income as a measurement tool for evaluating actual operating performance compared to budget and prior periods. These adjusted measures should not be considered an alternative to operating income, or any other measure of financial performance or liquidity presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These measures are not necessarily comparable to a similarly titled measure of another company. A reconciliation of the adjustments to U.S. GAAP results appears in exhibit 3 accompanying this press release. This additional adjusted information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for U.S. GAAP financials. The adjusted financial information that the Company provides also may differ from the adjusted information provided by other companies.

1 During the three months and year ended March 31, 2017, 20,566 and 74,952 new subscribers were recruited, respectively. During the three months and year ended March 31, 2017, the Company reclassified 268 and 4,180 private cord blood units as donated cord blood units after the Company determined that the recoverability of these prior private cord blood banking subscribers was low and therefore the Company terminated their subscription services according to the subscription contracts. These units are being treated as if they were donated cord blood units and will be part of the Company's non-current inventories. Hence the net accumulated subscriber base was 575,040 as of March 31, 2017.  


2 See exhibit 3 of this press release for a reconciliation of operating income to exclude the non-cash items related to the depreciation and amortization and share-based compensation expenses to the comparable financial measure prepared in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles ("U.S. GAAP").


3 The reported operating income for the three months and year ended March 31, 2016 and 2017 included the following:


(i)   Depreciation and amortization expenses for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017 were RMB12.4 million and RMB12.6 million ($1.8 million). Depreciation and amortization expenses for the year ended March 31, 2016 and 2017 were RMB50.2 million and RMB50.5 million ($7.3 million); and


(ii)  During the quarter ended December 31, 2014, the Company granted a total of 7,300,000 restricted share units ("RSU") to certain executives, directors and key employees under the Company's RSU scheme, subject to certain performance conditions. Share-based compensation expenses related to this RSU scheme were RMB15.1 million and RMB15.7 million ($2.3 million) for the three months ended March 31, 2016 and 2017. Share-based compensation expenses for the year ended March 31, 2016 and 2017 were RMB58.7 million and RMB62.2 million ($9.0 million).


4 The terms of the convertible notes provide the holder with the ability to participate in any excess cash dividend. Therefore, the calculation of basic EPS has taken into consideration the effect of such participating rights of RMB0.07 ($0.01) and RMB0.14 ($0.02) per share for the three months and year ended March 31, 2017, respectively. 


5 Out of 7,300,000 RSUs granted to certain executives, directors and key employees under the Company's RSU scheme during the quarter ended December 31, 2014, 7,080,000 ordinary shares ("Shares") were then issued and deposited into a trust sponsored and funded by the Company ("Trust"), and will be transferred to respective executives, directors and key employees (or their designated nominees) under the Company's RSU scheme when the performance conditions are met. The Trust facilitates the granting (and subsequent vesting) of incentive RSUs and holds such Shares for the benefit of such executives, directors and key employees as a class. Taking into account of such Shares, in addition to 73,003,248 outstanding shares, basic and diluted earnings per ordinary share would be RMB0.43 ($0.06) and RMB1.50 ($0.2) for the three months and year ended March 31, 2017, respectively.


6 Total debt represented the carrying amount of convertible notes, net as of March 31, 2017 and carrying amounts of bank loan and convertible notes, net as of March 31, 2016.
