Kiwa Bio-Tech First Half Results
CLAREMONT, Calif., Aug. 14, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Kiwa Bio-Tech Products Group Corporation (OTCBB:KWBT) announced results for the first half of 2006. Revenues for the first six months of 2006 were $24,374 compared to $1,018,303 the previous year. The primary cause of low sales in the first half of 2006 was the halt in operations at our manufacturing facility in the second half of 2005 to upgrade the facility to produce bacillus fertilizer. This upgrade was delayed due to the failure to obtain expected financing for it in the second half of 2005. We restarted production in the late first quarter of 2006 but volume has been low due to a shortage of working capital. In addition, sales in the first quarter of 2006 were low because the first quarter is a low season for products in China and most of the net sales for the six months ended June 30, 2005 were attributable to exports.
