For the 2013 fourth quarter gross profit was $1.3 million, or 65.6 % of total revenue, compared with $1.5 million, or 76.7% of total revenues for the comparable 2012 quarter. Gross profit was primarily impacted by the remanufacturing of yew trees into TCM from whole plants at the Qingshan plant.

Operating expenses were $262,982 in the quarter, as compared to $2.6 million in the year-ago quarter, which included stock-based compensation of $2.5 million.

Net income in the fourth quarter of 2013 was $1.0 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, compared with a net loss of $1.2 million in the year-ago quarter, or $0.02 per share.

Total revenues for the 2013 fiscal year were $7.4 million, a 10.6% increase from $6.7 million a year earlier.  Sales of TCM raw materials amounted to 56.1% of total revenues, sales of yew trees amounted to 40.5% of total revenues, and sales of handicrafts made up the remaining 3.4%.

Gross profit was $5.0 million, or 67.6% of total revenues, for the full year, compared with $5.4 million, or 81.0% of total revenues in 2012. 

Operating expenses were $1.1 million for the year ended December 31, 2013, compared with $3.2 million a year earlier.

Net income for 2013 increased to $3.9 million, or 0.08 per diluted share, from $2.2 million, or $0.05 per diluted share for 2012.

"During fiscal 2013, we were able to achieve growth across all revenue categories, selling more than 24,000 kg of TCM raw materials and nearly 500,000 yew trees," said Mr. Zhiguo Wang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yew Bio-Pharm Group. "To increase our growth trajectory, we are expanding our sales and marketing efforts to new customers, as well as continuing to evaluate land leasing opportunities.

"Through our patented Asexual Reproduction Method, we are able to significantly shorten the maturity cycle of naturally-grown yew trees, in as little as three years compared to more than 50 years for naturally grown yew trees. This allows for earlier commercialization while not further endangering the China's natural supply of yew trees, which were over-forested since the discovery of taxol," Mr. Wang added.

Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon.

Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
