Our wholesale gross margin for the three months ended June 30, 2012 was 2.5%, which is slightly lower than the profit margin of a traditional wholesale drug distributor. Because we introduced competitive prices to stimulate sales, our traditional wholesale business, where we purchase from third-party manufacturers or suppliers and resell, had a low profit margin. Although the margins for our group sales are usually higher than our traditional wholesale business, they vary depending on specific products we carried and sold.Our profit margin from our farming business was approximately 90.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2012. As we monitored our cultivated herbs through our specialists, we were able to maintain good quality that, in turn, enabled us markup our herbs to market prices. The cultivation costs for TCM’s are traditionally low therefore increasing the gross margin.
