NOTE: Detailed financial statements and information are available through this link:

"This quarter China Biologic reported an encouraging rebound in revenue from the second quarter and a slight increase on a year-over-year basis, reflecting our efforts to regain sales momentum following the COVID-19 disruption," said Joseph Chow, Chairman and CEO of China Biologic. "Thanks to recent measures to improve sales and marketing efficiencies, we recorded non-GAAP operating income growth of nearly 12% over the same quarter last year. During the quarter we further optimized our commercial team structure, enhanced our medical marketing support function, implemented a multidimensional evaluation system for staff performance and established better incentive and compensation structures. These strategic initiatives position us to cope with ongoing pandemic-related macro-uncertainties as well as potentially intensifying market competition, in the face of a short-term decline in demand and supply surge as observed in our peer companies' recent batch approval records."

"Beyond sales and marketing, our long term growth initiatives, including construction of new plasma collection stations and R&D projects, are well on track. We are pleased to report that our newly built collection station in Chongqing city recently passed official inspection with commercial operations to commence soon, and two new collection stations in Shandong province are expected to commercially launch in early 2021. With the continuing expansion of our plasma collection capacity and progress in our product pipeline, CBPO is well positioned to meet the increasing market demands for plasma protein therapeutics in China in the coming years."

Recent Development

As previously announced, on November 19, 2020, the Company entered into a definitive Agreement and Plan of Merger (the "Merger Agreement") with CBPO Holdings Limited ("Parent") and CBPO Group Limited ("Merger Sub"), a wholly owned subsidiary of Parent, which contemplates that Merger Sub will merge with and into the Company, with the Company continuing as the surviving entity and becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Parent.

Pursuant to the Merger Agreement, at the effective time of the merger, each ordinary share of the Company issued and outstanding immediately prior to the effective time of the merger will be cancelled and cease to exist in exchange for the right to receive $120.00 in cash without interest, except for Excluded Shares and Dissenting Shares (each as defined in the Merger Agreement). If completed, the merger will result in the Company becoming a privately-held company and its shares will no longer be listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market.

The closing of the merger is currently expected to occur during the first half of 2021 and is subject to customary closing conditions, including, among others, (i) that the Merger Agreement shall be authorized and approved by an affirmative vote of shareholders representing at least two-thirds of the ordinary shares of the Company present and voting in person or by proxy at an extraordinary general meeting of the Company's shareholders and (ii) that the aggregate amount of dissenting shares shall be less than 8% of the total outstanding ordinary shares of the Company immediately prior to the effective time of the merger.

The Company does not undertake any obligation to provide any update with respect to the merger or any other transaction, except as required under applicable law.
