DEAR FELLOW SHAREHOLDERS:

With the arrival of the Chinese New Year, I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to all shareholders for the trust and support offered to Yew Bio-Pharm and myself.

  • Total revenue rose 12.5% to $1.54 million from $1.37 million for the 2012 third quarter;
  • Sale of TCM raw materials was $1.00 million; sale of yew trees was $0.45 million; and sale of handicrafts was 0.09 million, representing increases of 12.5%, 13.2% and 0.09% from the year-ago quarter, respectively;
