Mr. Yongjun Liu, Chairman of the Company, commented: “During the past year COVID-19 still hangs over the world and poses many new challenges and opportunities to the economy and the medical industry in various countries. Thanks to our extensive product offerings, a strong upstream and downstream supply chain system and technical upgrades to our equipment and production capacity, our total sales increased to more than $100 million, representing a growth rate of more than 16% from 2020. We continue to place great importance on maintaining healthy cash flow reserves in the context of improving both our production and marketing capacity. Our strong cash reserves of more than $8 million as of end of last year, and the $36 million in proceeds raised from our successful IPO in February 2021 makes us confident we can further improve our production efficiency and new product research and development, especially in response to the COVID-19 infection cases in Shanghai and other regions since the first quarter of 2022. The Company has also increased a new production line of COVID-19 testing products. As another wave of the new coronavirus variant broke out, international and domestic orders have shown a continuous growth trend.

“Under our core value that ‘science and technology lead production,’ we plan to complete the construction of a new factory for the production of coronavirus detection and prevention products this year. In this way we can continue to maintain and expand our leading position in the industry in this environment as the spread and variation of the pandemic continues. We believe that the ongoing strategy of new product development and production capacity upgrades will further distinguish Meihua from a segmented market and enable us to become one of the world’s leading medical device suppliers in the next few years. At the same time, we will continue to monitor the changing market conditions in order to timely optimize our operation strategies and maintain rapid growth post-pandemic and create stable and long-term value returns for investors.

“As a medical device manufacturer with a leading position in the industry and a long history of more than 30 years, while developing at a high speed, we still adhere to a strict pursuit of product quality and production safety. Regardless of the type of products and their margins, the company uses a unified high standard of production and services. Because Meihua’s products concern human life and health, we can’t tolerate any carelessness. After the ups and downs of 2021, the company continues to maintain its commitment to the development and scientific research of new products, improve our production efficiency, and win long-term sustainable growth with high-quality after-sales service. We are dedicated to playing an important role in the global medical device supply chain.”

Mr. Yulin Wang, CEO and interim CFO of the Company, commented: “Overall, we achieved solid revenue growth in fiscal year 2021 and greatly optimized the Company’s operational efficiency with our net income expanding by nearly 5% to $20 million for the past year. As we advance, we will continue our commitment to building robust product capabilities, making them our core strengths that drive our Company to meet people’s growing needs for a better life.

“With our strong cash position we are confident in the sustainable profitability of all of our core key businesses, which maintained a strong gross margin at about 40% over the past two years, as well as the growth and profit potential of our new initiatives. The Company’s management team will continue to work together to seek profitable growth. We believe our continued commitment to high quality products and operational efficiency will generate more value for our customers, society and shareholders over the long term.

“The Covid-19 outbreak posed some challenges to the Company’s financial works that led to a slight delay in the reporting of our financial results. But we quickly adjusted and resolved all issues. Meihua will deliver sustainable growth and provide timely update on our business to cement investor confidence in the future.”

Fiscal Year 2021 Financial Results

The following table sets forth a summary of our consolidated results of operations for the periods presented:

Revenues

Revenues increased by $14.98 million or approximately 16.82%, to $104.04 million for the year ended December 31, 2021 from $89.06 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. The increase was mainly due to the company’s business expansion, research and development of new products, and development of new customers.

Cost of revenues

Cost of revenues primarily include cost of materials, direct labors, overhead, and other related incidental expenses that are directly attributable to the Company’s principal operations. Cost of revenue increased by $12.33 million to $64.23 million for the year ended December 31, 2021 from $51.90 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. The increase was mainly attributable to the increased sales in fiscal year 2021.

Gross profit and margin

Gross profit increased by $2.65 million or approximately 7.13%, to $39.81 million for the year ended December 31, 2021 from $37.16 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. Gross margin slightly decreased to 38.26% for the year ended December 31, 2021, from 41.72% for fiscal year 2020. The higher gross profit margin in fiscal 2020 was mainly attributable to much higher selling prices and increased gross margin for medical masks as a result of COVID-19 in fiscal year 2020. The price of medical masks fell back to normal levels as a result of increased supply in fiscal 2021, which brought down the overall gross profit margin.

Operating costs and expenses

Our operating costs and expenses, consisting of selling expenses, general and administrative expenses and research and development expenses, increased by $0.81 million or approximately 5.92%, to $14.50 million for the year ended December 31, 2021 from $13.69 million for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Selling expenses decreased by 2.42% to $6.46 million for the year ended December 31, 2021 from $6.62 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. The decrease was mainly attributable to the combined effects of the followings:

The Company did not conduct additional market research in fiscal year 2021 as market research activities incurred in fiscal year 2020 were still valid. Market research expenses were nil in fiscal year 2021 as compared to $579,357 in fiscal year 2020. The increase in sales led to an increase of $329,025 in transportation expenses for fiscal year 2021 to $2.80 million. Salaries and benefits expenses increased by $176,995 to $1.29 million for the year ended December 31, 2021. The increase was mainly attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic in China had been brought under control and the local government had canceled the social insurance relief policy. Entertainment expenses decreased $83,365 to $0.79 million for the year ended December 31, 2021. The decrease was mainly attributable to the fact that Yangzhou City in the PRC had been under lockdown for some period due to the epidemic in fiscal 2021, so the relevant business entertainment expenses were reduced.

General and administrative expenses increased by $742,235 to $5.32 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, from $4.58 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. The increase was mainly due to the $0.96 million investor relations service fee incurred in fiscal year 2021.

Research and development expenses increased by approximately 9.64%, to $2.73 million for the year ended December 31, 2021, from $2.49 million for the year ended December 31, 2020. The increase was mainly due to the increase in salaries and benefits expenses which was mainly attributable to the pandemic in China having been brought under control and the local government having canceled the social insurance relief policy that had been in place during the height of the pandemic.

Income from operations

As a result of the factors described above, our income from operations increased by $1.84 million, or approximately 7.80%, to $25.30 million for the year ended December 31, 2021 from $23.47 million for the year ended December 31, 2020.

Net income

As a result of the factors described above, our net income increased by $945,991, or approximately 4.99%, to $20.00 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2021 from $19.05 million for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.

Cash

Cash was $8.15 million as of December 31, 2021, reflecting an increase of $0.96 million from $7.19 million as of December 31, 2020.
