Tianli's Chairwoman and CEO, Ms. Hanying Li, began, "We completed another successful year, which included the acquisition of our 11th hog farm and the launch of our Tianli-branded retail pork products through our partnership with An Puluo Foods. While our fourth quarter results were negatively impacted by complications resulting from contaminated feed at a few of our farms, we responded quickly to contain the impact. Having implemented a series of additional safeguards, we expect the negative drag on our financials to subside in the first half of 2012."

Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2011 increased 49% to $8.7 million from same period a year ago. The Company sold 25,472 hogs, down 1% from the prior year reflecting the stronger demand for market hogs offset by the weaker demand for breeder hogs. Sales of market hogs increased 68% to $5.3 million as high retail pork prices drove strong demand for market hogs. Breeder hog sales fell 38% to $1.6 million, representing 19% of total sales in the fourth quarter of 2011.
Through its cooperation with An Puluo Food, Tianli's retail division generated $1.7 million in sales in the fourth quarter after launching in the third quarter of 2011. Tianli provides and co-brands hog meat cuts, packaged and sold in refrigerated food cases under the Tianli AnPuluo brand in over 50 major retail outlets in great Wuhan, including Wal-Mart, Zon 100 and RT Mart.
Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2011 was $2.0 million, a 20% decrease from the same period last year. Gross margin was approximately 23% and 43% for the fourth quarter of 2011 and 2010, respectively. The year-over-year margin decline was attributable to $1.3 million in costs related to the disposal of a shipment of contaminated hog feed and the treatment and disposal of hogs which became ill as a result of eating the contaminated feed.
Selling, general and administrative expenses were $0.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2011, an increase of approximately $0.5 million. Approximately $0.1 million of the increase was related to higher public company expenses and $0.4 million related to the Company's retail business and marketing costs not present in the year ago period.
