China Sky manufactures pharmaceutical and medicinal products and diagnostics kits.

On February 15, 2012, the Company disclosed the resignation of 26 middle-management level employees, nine of whom worked in the Company's accounting department. On that same day, NASDAQ announced it had halted trading in the stock until it received adequate "additional information requested" from the Company. On these revelations, China Sky's shares declined $0.43 per share or 28%, to close at $1.10 on February 15, 2012.
