Operational Highlights for the Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2011

  • Signed Letter of Intent to acquire Shangzhi Yulong Cattle Co., which has annual production capacity of 30,000 tons of fresh milk and is expected to add approximately $4.5 million in net income in 2012.
  • Received several raw milk orders including 3,500 tons from Qiqihar Heshan Dairy Co., 4,000 ton raw milk order from Heilongjiang Nongkendelong Dairy Co., 4,300 ton raw milk order from LongXing Dairy Co., and 4,700 ton raw milk order from Suihua Dongxing Dairy.
  • Total tons of raw fresh milk sold increased 58% to 82,785 for the 2011 fiscal year as compared to 52,383 for the 2010 fiscal year.

Mr. Youliang Wang, Chief Executive Officer of China Modern Agricultural Information, commented, "China Modern has been engaged in the breeding of livestock and in the production and sale of fresh milk since January 2005. Today we have approximately 9,200 adult cows and for the fiscal 2011 year we sold approximately 82,785 tons of fresh milk, an increase of 58% year over year. This growth including the price appreciation of raw milk has yielded an increase in revenue and net income of 74% and 97% to $25 million and $9 million respectively. Recently we signed a letter of intent to acquire Shangzhi Yunlong which would increase our production capacity by 30,000 tons and add approximately $4.5 million in net income in 2012. We will continue to aggressively seek other opportunities to fuel the growth of our business."

Mr. Wang, continued, "In June 2011 the management team of China Modern adjusted our business model to increase the Company's profitability. We now sell our cows directly to farmers under a five year lease to own program. The two distinct advantages are that the asset is now moved off our balance sheet which enables the company to make additional return on the sale of the livestock, and farmers are further incentivized to produce more milk because they now have ownership of the cow. The new model has already increased profit margins and allowed us to focus more on the distribution of our raw milk product. Management will now be able to focus additional time and resources on building our customer base and cultivating industry relationships."

Financial Results for the Fiscal Year Ended June 30, 2011
Revenue for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011 totaled $25 million, an increase of 74.3% as compared to $14.4 million for the same period in 2010. Revenue is generated predominately from the sale of natural milk and natural milk sales commissions from farmers. Revenue increased year-over-year due to an increase in the number of adult cows cared for and the increase in sales price of milk per kg. Since November 2010 the price of milk has increased from $0.30 per kg to $0.35 per kg as of May 2011, an increase of 16.7%. Total tons of raw fresh milk sold increased 58% to 82,785 for the 2011 fiscal year as compared to 52,383 for the 2010 fiscal year.

Cost of sales for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011 totaled $11.9 million, or 47.7% of revenue, an increase of 55.1% compared to $7.7 million, or 53.6% of revenue, for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010. Cost of goods sold consists of feed, feeding expenses, and other working capital. The increase in cost of sales was a direct result of the increase in number of adult cows cared for.

Gross profit for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011 totaled $13.1 million, an increase of 96.5% compared to $6.7 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010. Gross profit margin improved to 52.3% for the 2011 fiscal year as compared to 46.4% for the 2010 fiscal year. Management expects under the new business model for gross profit margins to increase due to the reduction in costs associated with maintaining the livestock. Additionally, management expects the price of raw milk to continue rising over the next one to three years.

Operating expenses for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011 totaled $1.4 million as compared to $602,000 for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010.
