Sales of Shaanxi Weinan's products increased by approximately $0.5 million or 30.2% to $2.3 million for the three months ended June, 2013 compared to the same period in 2012. The increase was attributable to an increase in sales volume and introduction of new products. The Company has also begun sales of three new products that were sold exclusively at a local hospital since the third quarter in 2012. These products accounted for approximately $1.9 million of total net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2013.

Advertising expenses accounted for 17.4% and 53.8% of total net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2013 and 2012.
