Der chinesische Pharmaproduzent verfüge bereits über vier am Markt etablierte Medikamentenmarken sowie über eine spannende Entwicklungspipeline. Lotus Pharmaceuticals vertreibe per Direktvertrieb mehr als 5.000 Arzneimittel und traditionelle chinesische Medizin sowie medizinisches Equipment. Des Weiteren betreibe die Gesellschaft 10 Apotheken im Stadtgebiet von Peking.

Zwischen den Jahren 2005 und 2008 seien die Umsätze um 300% von 18,4 Mio. USD auf 73,8 Mio. USD explodiert. Im gleichen Zeitraum habe sich der Nettogewinn von 1,83 Mio. auf 12,8 Mio. USD sogar versiebenfacht. Im zuletzt abgelaufenen 3. Quartal habe Lotus Pharmaceuticals eigenen Angaben zufolge bei Umsätzen von 14,5 Mio. USD einen Nettogewinn von 5,4 Mio. USD bzw. 0,11 USD pro Aktie erwirtschaftet. Auf das Gesamtjahr hochgerechnet seien das 0,45 USD je Aktie, wobei das 4. Quartal traditionell das stärkste des Jahres sei.

Bei einem Aktienkurs von 1,34 USD betrage das KGV gerade einmal 3, was vor dem Hintergrund der Wachstumsraten und der Zukunftsperspektiven nach Erachten der Experten völlig lächerlich sei.

Für die Experten von "Emerging Markets Investor" ist die Lotus Pharmaceuticals-Aktie ein klarer Verdreifachungskandidat für 2010. Das Papier werde sofort in das neue Musterdepot aufgenommen. (Ausgabe 01 vom 11.01.2010) (12.01.2010/ac/a/a)

5781 Postings, 3881 Tage Kleine_prinzThis Exploration Stock Has Potential

Ian Wyatt | Feb 04, 2010 3:58pm EST | Comment
Rating: Unrated [rate it]

We've seen strong performance in many stocks in the market over the last two days. Especially strong have been China stocks which moved sharply higher Tuesday on the heels of healthy trade data and robust economic growth expectations. National Bureau of Statistics Chief Economist Yao Jingyuan said China's economic growth would stay above 8% this year, helping to ally fears of a double-dip recession elsewhere around the globe.  

That statement helped to propel many of the China stocks in the Small Cap Investor PRO portfolio sharply higher. And Lotus Pharmaceuticals (OTC BB: LTUS), which I've recommended here in Small Cap Investor Daily, was a top performer,jumping 17% yesterday to close at $1.68.  

I've been hammering home one point lately: The market is paying attention to news again. Be sure to remember this, as volatility has increased with investors moving in and out of equities as new news is released. The volatility is creating great buy and sell opportunities for active traders. It's also presenting opportunities for long-term investors looking to pick up shares in companies they've been watching in anticipation of a pullback.

Stock prices will very likely be more volatile this year than in 2009, and we've already seen this with a pullback in January. That means it's going to be even more important to do your research and buy quality stocks at reasonable valuations. It's also going to be crucial for investors to focus on the sectors that will outperform this year. Of course, all of this will be part of our ongoing conversation here in Small Cap Investor Daily.   

*** I want to briefly discuss three stocks that readers have sent in to have me take a look at. Now, of course we love to receive requests to look at companies that have glowing prospects and stocks trading at dirt-cheap valuations. Those gems we continue to follow because many of you are buying shares. And it's always exciting to track a company as it grows from a micro-cap, to a small-cap, and eventually to a large-cap stock – making investors huge gains along the way.

But some readers are having a good time finding highly speculative stocks that are not yet profitable, and are sending those in. I don't buy shares of these types of companies, but that doesn't mean you can't trade them for quick gains. I limit risk by investing only in companies that have turned the corner of profitability because, if a company can't earn a return on the products and services it sells, I don't want to invest my hard earned dollars. So buy shares in unprofitable companies if you wish, but be aware that these will be among the first, and fastest, to fall when sellers head for the exits on dismal economic news.

*** So let's take a quick look at some stocks that were recently sent in and I'll point out the red flags that jumped out at me. Consider this the small-cap chopping block. While I usually want to tell you what I like to buy, it's occasionally helpful to take a look at what not to buy too. So for readers who sent these in, don't take this personally. I'm simply trying to cover the spectrum of stocks that readers ask me to look at.

Hallo Leute ,versuche es heute mal mit nem kleinen Einstieg. Leider bin ich imo. nicht so flüssig, würde gern mehr kaufen,aber das kommt noch denke ich. Lotus hat ein Riesiges Potenzial, zumal sie traditionelle Chinesiche Medizin (getrocknete Affenpenisse, Schildkrötenleber, und Heilpflanzen) mit moderner Medizin kombinieren.
Hierbei sollte mann auch im Auge haben das ein Chinese anders zum Arzt geht als ein Europäer. ein Chinese geht zum Arzt um vorzubeugen, wenn er doch krank wird war der Arzt Kacke. Bei 1,3 Milliarden Chinesen ist der Markt Gigantisch.
Lotus hat eine Marktkapitalisirung von 46Millionen ?

China Drug Stocks Offer Value Remedy
By Zack Buckley 02/16/10 - 11:52 AM EST
Stock quotes in this article: CHME.OB , LTUS.OB , CYXN.OB , SSRX  

Chinese pharmaceutical stocks are offering great bargains for value investors.

Pharmaceutical sales in China have been growing at an average annual rate of 15.5% since 2005. This growth is being fueled by rising incomes, a growing middle class and a rapidly aging population. The elderly population in China has grown from 171 million from 130 million over the past decade, and health care spending by the elderly is five times higher than it was in 2000.

In addition, Beijing has made health care one of its primary initiatives and plans to spend $123 billion on a universal health care in the next three years.

China's pharmaceutical industry is rapidly consolidating, and the market leaders are growing in value.

These leaders have several things in common: a strong nationwide sales and distribution network, strong research and development capabilities and access to capital.

Although some Chinese pharmaceutical companies trade with price-to-earnings ratios as high as 63, Lotus Pharmaceuticals(LTUS.OB Quote) has a P/E of only 5.12.

You would expect a low P/E to be indicative of a stalwart company. However, Lotus Pharmaceuticals grew revenue at 59% from 2005 to 2008, and net income is up 700% since 2005.

The company's revenue comees from a combination of pharmaceuticals wholesaling and the development and sale of proprietary drugs. It plans to continue to grow by expanding distribution channels, expanding production capacity through the building of a large factory and bringing new drugs to the market by partnering with top research institutions.

We believe a company this cheap should not be overlooked. In summary, Lotus is a comprehensive company with both strong manufacturing capability and a nationwide distribution network, great research-and-development capabilities with a new drug pipeline and a very attractive valuation.

China Biotech Week in Review: A Good Week for Life Science Fundings 3 comments
by: ChinaBio Today March 14, 2010 | about: LTUS.OB / WX    

It was a good week for fundings in China life science, with five companies announcing new capital. Chief among them was AutekBio, which released the news that it would take advantage of an impressive $100 million for a biologic CMO facility.

AutekBio, Inc., with headquarters in the Bay Area of California but operations in China, will build Asia’s largest biologic CMO facility in southern Beijing (see story). To construct the facility, AutekBio signed a deal securing $100 million in venture capital from private and government sources. Contributing to the capital raise were SUMA Ventures and Beijing E-Town Harvest International Capital Management Corporation, Beijing’s Municipal Government’s venture capital group.

Chongqing Porton Fine Chemicals Co., a CMO, raised $10 million from the Chongqing DT Fund (see story). The Chongqing DT Fund is a joint effort run by DT Capital of Shanghai and funded by the Chongqing Venture Capital Guidance Fund. Porton will use the money to build a state-of-the-art intermediate and API manufacturing facility in Changshou Chemical Park in Chongqing.

TCT Medical Technology, a China medical device company that focuses on the OB/GYN market, has raised $10 million in new capital from two Fidelity funds (see story). TCT claims to be the largest high-tech medical equipment and supplies importer in China within women’s health. It is the exclusive distributor in China of Cytyc’s ThinPrep pap test, the world’s leading cervical cancer screening product.

EA Inc., a company that makes invisible dental braces, completed a $6.6 million Series A financing led by OrbiMed, which provided “nearly all” of the funds, along with individual investors (see story). OrbiMed characterized the financing as a restructuring of EA Inc., which will move its official headquarters to the Cayman Islands, and its operations to Wuxi.

Lotus Pharmaceuticals (LTUS.OB) has begun construction of nine-story building complex that will provide offices, R&D, production, and storage (see story). The new facility is being built on the grounds of its existing production facility in Beijing. Lotus, which has very low levels of cash, did not disclose the facility’s cost or the source of the funds for the project.

There was also some non-funding news in the China life science sphere during the week just past. Xiaochuan Wang, PhD, a returnee who founded Shanghai’s CRO Sundia MediTech in 2004, was named the Asia-Pacific Entrepreneur of the Year by BioSpectrum (see story). From its beginnings in 2004, Sundia has grown to an organization with 400 employees, including more than 300 scientists, which offers CRO services to over 90 customers from the US, Europe and Japan.

As expected, WuXi PharmaTech (NYSE: WX) reported 2009 net revenues of $270 million, an increase of 7% (see story). Net income climbed to $52.9 million, a great improvement from the loss of $64.2 million in 2008, caused in part by a writedown. In 2009, revenues matched analysts’ expectations, while earnings were slightly below forecasts.

Disclosure: none.

Chinese Pharmaceuticals by guest blogger, Zack Buckley

March 27, 2010

Zack Buckley is CEO of Uncoveringalpha.com. He developed his investing methodology by synthesizing the ideas from the best investors of all time, based on their track record. This led him to closely follow Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, George Soros, Seth Klarman and Benjamin Graham. Using a value approach, he pursued the most undervalued companies he could find, which led primarily to companies in China. Buckley will be spending three months this year in China visiting companies that are exciting investment opportunities. Follow him on his blog, Uncoveringalpha.com, as he travels across China touring factories and interviewing management.

 

PART I

When shopping in the supermarket, shoppers always flock to the half off sales.  In the stock market, a half off sale creates worldwide panic.  Although these circumstances are actually exceptional for long term investors, most people fear the world is ending.  I welcome half off sales in the stock market because they are a great way to build long term wealth.

The Chinese pharmaceutical industry presents multiple bargains for value investors.  Pharmaceuticals sales in China have been growing at a rate of 15.5% annually from 2005-2010.  There is a strong demand for pharmaceutical products in China due to growing income, a larger middle class, and a rapidly aging population.  The elderly population in China grew from 130 million in 2000 to 171 million in 2010.  Healthcare spending by the elderly is 5 times higher.

In addition the government has made healthcare one of its primary initiatives; as a result, a Universal Health plan package geared to deliver $123 billion in the next three years has been issued. 

 The industry is rapidly consolidating, where the market leaders are rapidly growing in value.  Characteristics of future markets leaders are

1.      A strong nationwide sales and distribution network

2.      Strong research and development capabilities

3.      Access to capital in order to expand

            While some companies trade with P/E ratios as high as 63, Lotus pharmaceuticals has a P/E of only 5.12.  You would expect a low P/E to be indicative of a stalwart company.  However, Lotus Pharmaceuticals grew revenues at 59% from 2005-2008 and has net income up 700% since 2005.  Lotus Pharmaceuticals revenue streams are a combination of pharmaceuticals wholesaling and the development and sale of proprietary drugs.  Their primary growth strategies are expanding their distribution sales channels in order to increase sales, expanding production capacity through the building of a large factory, and bringing new drugs to the market by partnering with top R&D institutions.  We believe a company this cheap should not be overlooked.  In summary, lotus is a comprehensive company with both strong manufacturing capability and a nationwide distribution network, great R&D capabilities with a new drug pipeline including a Class I drug, and a very attractive valuation. 

China Medicine Corporation (CHME) has a current P/E ratio of 5.91 and P/S of .69.  The company is rapidly growing and has developed a proprietary product rADTZ, which is made to decrease animal mortality rates by fighting Aflatoxins, should substantially enhance revenues.  They estimate the addressable market for rADTZ is up to $4 billion and that the successful commercialization and licensing of rADTZ has the potential to substantially improve revenue and profit picture in the years to come. Their distribution consists of 300 hospitals and 500 other medical companies, which leads to 2000 drug stores.  Revenues are up to 53 million in 2008 from 15 million in 2005.  A company like this is extremely cheap.  A comparable company is 3sBio, which has a P/E of 22 and a P/S of 3.96.  China medicine is much cheaper than 3sBio with better return on equity and profit margins. 

China Yongxin CYXN has a current P/E ratio of 4.9 and a P/S ratio of .25.  The company has three divisions, they run 93 retail drugstores in China, similar to Walgreens, they are a distributor of pharmaceutical products, and they have their own proprietary ginseng products.  The company’s products are Chinese traditional medicines, chemical pharmaceuticals preparations, flower teas, natural health products, healthy food, cosmetics, and medical equipment.  CYXN will focus on expanding its retail chain across China.  The company has continued to grow its wholesale business and is moving to expand the higher margin retail and manufacturing activities in the pharmaceutical business.  Management also plans to eventually uplist, once the company qualifies. 

SymbolMkt CapP/EPrice/SalesRev growth CAGR % 2007-08Net income CAGR Growth %, 2007-08
CYXN20.205.00.3323%13%
NPD705.6025.002.0022%30%
LTUS65.585.12.9651%11%
CHME53.935.911.0027%33%
SSRX239.9424.03.9935%-23%

 

It is clear that these are three great bargains in the Chinese pharmaceuticals industry.  I have a hard time believing markets are efficient when I look at these companies.  These companies seem to be trading well below their intrinsic values, although I reserve the right to be wrong.  In fact, I have founds tons of undervalued Chinese ADRs.  That is why I am going to China this summer to visit as many publicly traded companies as I can fit into two and a half months.  In the past three years on their trips to China, The Motley Fool researchers have identified companies that are now all up between 100-500% since their recommendations, I hope to do the same. 

PART II

There has been much debate recently as to the future of the Chinese economy.  Famous hedge fund manager Jim Chanos has publicly come out saying he will short the Chinese economy.  While I believe the Chinese real estate market and domestic stock market are overvalued, I think the Chinese companies trading on the U.S. exchanges are screaming buys!  Buffett talked about feeling like “an oversexed man in a brothel” in the mid 1970’s because he was so excited about the cheap prices in U.S. stocks, I feel the same about stocks in China right now.  No one can predict market fluctuations; I just buy when stocks are trading at a huge discount to their intrinsic value.  While I am not sure of the future in the markets in the next year or even two years, I am certain that these companies are exceptional buys for the long term investor. 

As I discussed in my previous article, leaders in the pharmaceutical industry have a similar winning business model: a strong nationwide sales and distribution network, strong research and development capabilities and access to capital.

Skystar Biopharmaceuticals appears to be the perfect Buffett-like company.  They have a sustainable competitive advantage with little competition in the veterinary health industry.  They are currently the only large corporation in this field that is not a state owned enterprise.  Skystar also has two important Buffett traits, a high Return on equity and high profit margins of 55% and 42% respectively.  This shows that they are not in a heavily competitive industry; profit margins and ROE are low in competitive industries.  Skystar has a P/E of 5.96 while it has grown revenue from 6 million in 2005 to 26 million in 2008, and will have substantial revenue growth in fiscal 2009, with estimates between 44-46 million.  Skystar also has a strong balance sheet with no long term debt. 

Biostar pharmaceuticals is poised for exceptionally strong growth over the next year.  They are expanding their sales outlets from 3,512 to 10,000 sales outlets by the end of 2010!!  If they reach their estimates, they will have net income growth of at least 100% in fiscal 2009.  Biostar’s most important drug, the Xin Aoxing Capsule, used for the treatment of Hepatitis B, has a near monopoly.  The drug is the only OTC approved drug of its kind in China, and has 93% efficacy with a cost of pennies on the dollar in comparison to other global competitors.   There may be as many as 130 million people in China with hepatitis B, so the target market for this product is huge.  They could as much as triple revenues in 2010, and are trading at a p/e of only 8. 

Biopharm Asia is involved in the planting, manufacturing, distribution, and retail sale of a large line of health care products.  It is trading at a p/e of only 4.42, and grew net income from 5.5 million to 14.4 million from 2007-2008.  This company is expanding rapidly and priced as if it was going nowhere, in these situations, it does not make sense not to buy. 

Weikang Bio-technology group (WKBT) is another Chinese pharmaceutical company that appears extremely undervalued.  They engage in the research, development, manufacturing, marketing, and sales of Traditional Chinese Medicine in China. We believe that a lack of investor awareness is one of the primary reasons for this substantial undervaluation. 

A valuation comparison of these Chinese companies to their US counterparts is shocking.  Pfizer has not grown since 2006, and is trading at a p/e of 13.  Walgreens is at a p/e of 16, and has grown revenues from 47 to 63 billion.  Sanofi Aventis has had no substantial revenue growth from 2006-2009, yet is trading at a p/e of 14.  In China we have companies growing at 30% or greater growth rates, and trading for p/e ratios of less than 8, while in the U.S. we have companies with 0-5% growth rates trading at p/e ratios of 13-16. 

The Chinese companies clearly present better value for the intelligent investor.  There are a few reasons why this undervaluation happens.  Two primary reasons are that these companies are unknown to investors and that they are in China.  Investors are afraid of Chinese stocks.  They are worried about companies in China because of conflicting opinions about the future of the Chinese economy.  This creates an incredible financial opportunity for those who do their research.   While I agree that the real estate market and domestic Chinese stock markets are overvalued, many of the Chinese companies trading on US markets or the OTC exchange are extremely undervalued. 

Other companies in the Chinese pharmaceutical industry worth watching are CKGT, CSKI, RHGP, and CPHI.  This industry is exploding with undervalued companies; investors would be well served to do some serious research.

Vier unterbewertetes chinesisches Pharmas

11. April 2010 | über: JGBO.OB/LTUS.OB/SNBP.OB/TPIS  

Durch Platinum Tiger

Während viele US - aufgeführte chinesische kleine Kappen haben bis jetzt dieses Jahr mit einem durchschnittlichen Gewinn des ersten Viertels von 19 Prozent, ein Sektor, pharmazeutische Produkte, ist bestraft worden unnachgiebig von den Investoren geblüht. Die acht pharmazeutischen Aktien verzeichneten in unserem RCS-Index haben verloren in Durchschnitt 25 Prozent ihres Wertes, seit sie am 15. Januar emporragten. Nur ein der acht - nutraceutical Produzent Nutrastar (NUIN.OB) - ist in der positiven Gegend für das Jahr. Mehrere, wie Lotos (LTUS.OB), Sinobiopharma (SNBP.OB) und Tianyin (TPIs) sind unten durch mehr als 20 Prozent und eins, Jiangbo (JGBO.OB), hat verschüttet fast Hälfte seinen Wert in der Vergangenheit drei Monate. Ich glaube, dass mehrere dieser Aktien jetzt tief und der ernsten Investitionsbetrachtung des Verdienstes zu viel verkauft werden.

Mit solch einem sehr großem Leistungsabstand zwischen pharmas und anderen Sektoren, konnte man gereizt werden, um festzustellen, dass die gesamte chinesische Pharmaindustrie schnell Bankrott machendes sein muss. Aber die Wahrheit ist Gesundheitspflege im Allgemeinen, und pharmazeutische Produkte insbesondere, dröhnen. Unveränderliche Regierungsexpansion des Zugangs zu den Gesundheitspflegedienstleistungen und das Verbessern von Patentdurchführung haben in einen schnell wachsenden Markt mit Gewinn aud langfristigen Geschäftengelegenheiten übersetzt. Mit 20 Prozent der Bevölkerung der Welt und des bloßen 2-Prozent-Anteiles des globalen Drogemarktes, ist der Sektor noch in den Anfangsstadien seines Reifezyklus.

So warum hat es soviel baissetendenziösen Druck auf diesen Aktien gegeben? Neue Einkommenansagen sind gemischt worden, und Konkurrenz hat zu Preiskalkulationsdruck für einige Firmen geführt. Aber, während die Industrie fortfährt zu vereinigen, erwarte ich, dass Wettbewerbsdruck nachläßt und viele der Firmen in unserem Index attraktive Erwerbsziele für größere pharmazeutische Spieler darstellen.

Ein Vorrat mit großer möglicher Oberseite ist Jiangbo. Jetzt, handelnd an gut unterhalb des Wertes von seinen $100 Million in den Bargeldbeständen, mit einem Vorwärts-PET von nur ungefähr 2x, ist dieses eine der unterbewertetsten Firmen, die ich gesehen habe. Der Vorrat ist vor kurzem zerschlagen worden und in der Vergangenheit gefallen über 25 Prozent zwei Wochen trotz eines kompletten Fehlens negativen Nachrichten. Die Firma ist ein unveränderlicher Geldhersteller mit festen Aussichten, aber aus Gründen, die zu mir unklar sind, haben Investoren ihn behandelt, als wenn er Erlöschen des Geschäfts ist. Viele vergleichbaren Firmen handeln für 3 bis 5mal soviel wie Jiangbo; es könnte im Preis sich verdoppeln und unterbewertet noch sein.

In Kürze wird Verkaufsdruck zu vermindern gesprungen und kleine Kappe chinesische pharmas drehen sich herum. Ich empfehle mich, Anteile an einigen dieser Aktien für short- zum zyklischen Rückstoß der Halbzeit aufzuheben.

Four Undervalued Chinese Pharmas
by: China Player April 11, 2010 | about: JGBO.OB / LTUS.OB / SNBP.OB / TPI   

By Platinum Tiger

While many U.S.-listed Chinese small caps have flourished so far this year with an average first quarter gain of 19 percent, one sector, pharmaceuticals, has been relentlessly punished by investors. The eight pharmaceutical stocks listed in our RCS index have lost on average 25 percent of their value since they peaked on January 15. Only one of the eight - nutraceutical producer Nutrastar (NUIN.OB) - is in positive territory for the year. Several, like Lotus (LTUS.OB), Sinobiopharma (SNBP.OB) and Tianyin (TPI) are down by more than 20 percent, and one, Jiangbo (JGBO.OB), has shed nearly half its value in the past three months. I believe several of these stocks are now deeply oversold and merit serious investment consideration.

With such a huge performance gap between pharmas and other sectors, one might be tempted to conclude that the entire Chinese pharmaceutical industry must be rapidly going bankrupt. But the truth is health care in general, and pharmaceuticals in particular, are booming. Steady government expansion of access to health care services and improving patent enforcement have translated into a rapidly growing market with long-term profit opportunities. With 20 percent of the world's population and a mere 2 percent share of the global drug market, the sector is still in the early stages of its maturity cycle.

So why has there been so much bearish pressure on these stocks? Recent earnings announcements have been mixed, and competition has led to pricing pressure for some companies. But as the industry continues to consolidate, I expect competitive pressures will ease, and many of the companies in our index will present attractive acquisition targets for larger pharmaceutical players.

One stock with great potential upside is Jiangbo. Now trading at well below the value of its $100 million in cash holdings, with a forward PE of only about 2x, this is one of the most undervalued companies I have seen. The stock has been battered recently, dropping over 25 percent in the past two weeks despite a complete absence of negative news. The company is a steady money maker with solid prospects, but for reasons that are unclear to me, investors have treated it as though it's going out of business. Many comparable companies are trading for 3 to 5 times as much as Jiangbo; it could double in price and still be undervalued.

Before long, selling pressure is bound to diminish and small cap Chinese pharmas will turn around. I recommend picking up shares in a few of these stocks for a short- to mid-term cyclical rebound.

Lotus Pharmaceuticals' Innovative Drug to Receive SFDA Fast Track Approval

Press Release Source: Lotus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. On Tuesday April 20, 2010, 1:22 pm EDT

BEIJING, April 20 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Lotus Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board:LTUS.ob - News) ("Lotus" or the "Company"), a growing developer, manufacturer and seller of medicine and drugs in the People's Republic of China (the "PRC") reported that its asthma drug Laevo-Bambutero will receive the China's State Food & Drug Administration's (SFDA) Fast Track Approval to enter clinical trials. The SFDA's Drug Review and Evaluation Center told the Company during recent consultations at the end of the Company's IND (Investigative New Drug Application) that formal approval would be granted by the Beijing office of the SFDA.

Laevo-Bambutero has completed the SFDA special review process under Category Two of the four categories of drugs that can receive speedier approval for IND, clinical trials and new drug production. SFDA issues special review and fast-track approval procedures for new drugs in 2009, under the following four categories of drugs:

 


1) New active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) extracted from plants,
animals or minerals, and newly discovered traditional Chinese medicines
(TCM), along with their preparations, and products that are not sold in
the domestic market;
2) Drugs, and their APIs, preparations, and biological products, have not
been approved in the domestic and overseas market;
3) New drugs with superior efficacy for AIDS, malignant tumors and other
rare diseases; and
4) New drugs for diseases for which there is no existing effective
treatment.

 

CEO, Dr. Zhongyi Liu, commented, "Millions of people are suffering from asthma worldwide, and 30-40 millions of asthma patients are estimated in China. It took ten years to develop Laevo-Bambutero, and we own its patent rights until 2022. We believe it is highly effective and has few side effects. We hope to accelerate the new tablet introduction to market and commercialization."

China's pharmaceutical industry has undergone the transformation from a generic-dominated model to the one that promotes drug innovation. The SFDA's Amended Measures effective in October of 2007 are intended to increase drug safety, tighten appraisal and approval processes while encouraging innovation. Given the SFDA's strict implementation of the Amended Measures, the Company believes that product pipeline pending SFDA approval status should only include Isosorbide Mononitrate-Sustained Release Tablets for cardiovascular disease, Gliclazide-Controlled Release Tablets for Type 2 diabetes and Laevo-Bambutero for asthma.

Lotus Pharma Expects Approval to Begin Trials of Asthma Drug
by: ChinaBio Today April 26, 2010
 Lotus Pharmaceuticals (LTUS.OB) said the SFDA indicated it would grant fast-track approval to begin clinical trials of its asthma drug Laevo-Bambutero. At a meeting held as part of its Investigative New Drug Application, Lotus was told the Beijing office of the SFDA would issue the approval to begin clinical trials.

Laevo-Bambutero completed the SFDA special review process under Category Two of the four categories of drugs that can receive speedier approval: Drugs, and their APIs, preparations, and biological products that have not been approved in the domestic and overseas market.

"Millions of people are suffering from asthma worldwide, and 30-40 million of asthma patients are estimated in China.

We hope to accelerate the new tablet introduction to market and commercialization," said Dr. Zhongyi Liu, CEO of Lotus.

The asthma drug joins two other Lotus products that are awaiting SFDA approval: Isosorbide Mononitrate-Sustained Release Tablets for cardiovascular disease, and Gliclazide-Controlled Release Tablets for Type 2 diabetes.

In 2009, Lotus reported revenues actually fell 22% to $57.8 million. On the other hand, net earnings climbed 28% to $16.4 million or 33 cents per share, fully diluted. Net cash provided by operating activities was $31.4 million.

Lotus expressed hope that sales would increase as it began using its new Beijing building complex. It expects EBIT will grow 15-20% in 2010 as direct sale of drugs to third-party pharmacies in Beijing generates additional revenues.

On Friday, the SEED Life Sciences Business Plan Competition chose Dr. Yuqiang Wang from Guangzhou Jinan University College of Pharmacy as its first winner (see story). Dr. Josen Ma, from Pharminova Bio-tech Co. Ltd. and Dr. Bai Xu from Suzhou Natong Bionanotechnology Co. Ltd. were named as the runners-up. The SEED competition was organized by Roche, OrbiMed, and McKinsey. The event was hosted by the ChinaBio Accelerator in Zhangjiang Hi-Tech Park, Shanghai.

Sanofi-Aventis (NYSE: SNY) has established a regional R&D center in Shanghai (see story) to develop and manage partnerships with China biopharmas. Unlike many of its big pharma competitors, Sanofi-Aventis is not building a lab and hiring scores of scientists to work exclusively on S-A projects. The company says the plan will allow Sanofi-Aventis to take advantage of China’s innovative biopharma culture.

Kun Run Biotechnology (KURU.OB), a biopharma focused on peptide and small molecule drugs, has raised $8 million in a private placement with Caduceus Asia Partners, LP, a fund managed by OrbiMed Advisors, and Mr. Xueyun Cui, who is both Chairman and majority stockholder of Kun Run (see story). In a statement, Mr. Cui said that OrbiMed’s participation would give Kun Run a leg up in its plan to sell products globally.

Artepharm Global Corp. [OTCBB: ARGC] formed a joint venture with a similarly named China company, Artepharm Co. Ltd. (Artepharm China), to market a malaria drug (see story). Artepharm China is a Guangzhou-based biopharma whose malaria drug, Artequick, produced $1.5 million of revenue in 2009. Although Artepharm did not call the transaction a reverse merger, it has most of the characteristics of one.

NeoStem, Inc. (NBS) announced a stem cell collaboration with ImmuneRegen BioSciences, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of IR BioSciences Holdings, Inc. [OTCBB: IRBS] (see story). NeoStem will investigate whether Homspera, ImmuneRegen’s lead product, will enhance stem cell activity when used in combination with NeoStem's VSEL technology.

Eisai Co., Ltd., the fourth largest Japanese pharma, licensed the China rights to a gastroprokinetic agent, cinitapride tartrate, from Almirall, S.A. of Spain (see story). Eisai obtained exclusive rights to develop, manufacture and market cinitapride in China. Eisai has a production facility in Suzhou. In 2001, Eisai bought the China rights to an antiallergic agent, Kestine, from Almirall. Terms of the new license were not disclosed.

Lotus Pharmaceuticals (LTUS.OB) said the SFDA indicated it would grant fast-track approval to begin clinical trials of its asthma drug Laevo-Bambutero (see story). At a meeting held as part of its Investigative New Drug Application, Lotus was told the Beijing office of the SFDA would issue the approval to begin clinical trials.

Simcere Pharma (NYSE: SCR) reported that diosmectite, the API in its branded generic diarrhea drug Biqi, has passed EU-GMP inspection (see story). Diosmectite is made from a natural mineral, and Simcere owns a high-grade diosmectite mine in China. It is the leading anti-diarrhea drug in China and France.

ATS Medical (NSDQ: ATSI) reported the first commercial implant of the ATS 3f Aortic Bioprosthesis, a tissue valve, was completed recently at Fu Wai Hospital in Beijing, China (see story). ATS Medical, of Plymouth, Minnesota, received SFDA approval of the valve last month. ATS Medical maintains an office in Shanghai. The ATS 3f Aortic Bioprosthesis is a stentless pericardial aortic tissue valve that is designed to function like a native valve.
