TIANJIN Zhong Xin Pharmaceutical Group Corporation has posted a net profit of 173.4 million yuan (S$36.4 million) for the first quarter ended March 31, up 29.6 per cent from the preceding year.

Other gains for the company in the first quarter stood at 23 million yuan, an increase of 34 per cent or approximately 5.8 million yuan over the year-ago period.

No dividend has been declared for the quarter.
