Mr. Zhenyu Shang, the founder and chief executive officer of Sen Yu International, said, "Our strong increases in revenues and net income for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010 reflect the high pork consumption in the Chinese market due to China's economic expansion. The consistency of our operating performance results from our established business model and effective execution. Our strategy, business model and actions have proven to be very effective, thereby delivering results. We continue to bring in talents to strengthen our financial structure and corporate governance."Looking at the company's products, revenues from commercial hogs were up $20.82 million or 44% to $68.33 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010 from $47.51 million for the same period ended June 30, 2009. Revenues from other hogs decreased from $2.89 million or 30% for the period ended June 30, 2010 to $2.02 million. Commercial hogs refer to the hogs we purchase from Wang Da Farmers. Other hogs refer to hogs raised in our own breeding facilities. The increase in the commercial hogs product line was primarily attributable to our policy of committing all of our available cash resources to the commercial hogs market.To help fulfill the large increase in customer orders for the commercial hogs, the Company negotiates large discount of fodder and prepays Wang Da to deliver the high quality fodder to farmers. Wang Da acquires the mature hogs and delivers the hogs to Beijing Fifth Meat Factory and Dahongmen, both located in Beijing.Operating expenses remained under control, with gross profit margin increasing by 2.89% to 20.31% for period ended June 30, 2010 from 17.42% for the same period ended June 30, 2009 on higher unit margin. The Company's income from operations decreased to 9.31% for period ended June 30, 2010 from 10.83% for the same period ended June 30, 2009, principally due to the payment of non-recurring consulting fees of approximately $4.02 million occurring in 2010.Total other expenses decreased $0.94 million or 68.55% to $0.43 million for the period ended June 30, 2010 from $1.37 million for period ended June 30, 2009, mainly due to decrease in mortality losses. Swine mortality caused an expense of $354,612 during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010, recorded as "losses on disposal of fixed assets" or "losses on disposal of inventories" depending on the category of the deceased hog. During the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009, our mortality losses were $1,368,364. This category of expense will vary from year to year, depending on factors such as weather, disease, and other seasonal factors. We recorded the mortality losses of breeder and commercial hogs under "losses on disposal of fixed assets" and "losses on disposal of inventories," respectively.As a result, the Company's net income increased $1.75 million or 38.74% for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010 to $6.26 million from $4.51 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009. The Company's net profit margin before non-controlling Interest improved to 8.69% for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010 from 8.10% for the same period ended June 30, 2009.As of June 30, 2010 there was an advance to Wang Da of $30.82 million. In order to raise quality commercial hogs, and control the quality of feeding materials and procedures, we entered into a cooperation agreement with Wang Da, our major feedstuff supplier, to provide our farmers fodder to raise their commercial hogs. The supplier offsets the advances from us once it delivers the Wang Da Farmers' commercial hogs to us. Primarily as a result of this advance, our operations provided us only $1.32 million in cash, despite $6.26 million net income during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010.The Company's cash outstanding for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009 was $82,854.The Company's current liability and total liability for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010 was $7.82 million as compared to $12.64 million for the same period ended June 30, 2009. The Company recorded derivative warrant liability of $4.15 million in 2010.Mr. Shang continued, "I believe our results for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2010 represent a very good performance in a very high growth year. With our advanced technology, modest debt leverage, and additional financing flexibility, we believe we should be very successful in expanding our current market and working capital to support sales growth in our commercial hogs market. We utilize Golden Lotus as our selling agent to ensure quality through a selection process. Golden Lotus is our exclusive sales agent in Heilongjiang Province. If Golden Lotus is not able to sell the minimum quarterly amount, it is required to pay a fee equal to 20% of the unaccomplished sales, and we have the right to sell our breeding swine through other agents. Among Golden Lotus' responsibilities is the recruitment of farmers that meet our standards. Golden Lotus is also responsible for processing the necessary data regarding the farmers, their requirements of breeding swine, their productivity, and an estimate of their fodder requirements. The data formulated by Golden Lotus is then used to determine the farmers' fodder requirements and our financial obligations to Wang Da. Wang Da is our fodder supply agent who maintains the Fodder Supply and Commercial Hog Buyback Agreements with the farmers."Mr. Shang concluded, "China's economic outlook continues to be encouraging, and China's projected domestic pork consumption will approach 68 million metric tons in 2015. Government support and trade protection policies also encourage domestic pig production with tax exemptions, vaccines technology, feed costs cap, price control and providing use of lands. China consumes about 50% of the world's pork products. As a result, we believe that the high demand for hogs should continue for several years."About Sen Yu International Holdings, Inc.We are a holding company whose subsidiaries are in the business of research, development and sale of breeding stock of swine and the sale of their mature offspring in the PRC.We entered the hog breeding and production business in September 2004.
