Revenues from the Company's distribution network decreased by $0.52 million, or 15.7%, to $2.77 million for the third quarter of 2018 from $3.29 million for the same period of last year. Distribution network contributed 78.1% of total revenues for the third quarter of 2018, compared to 69.4% for the same period of last year. The decrease in distribution network sales was due to the termination of bad contracts with customers in the third quarter of last year. Additionally, KBS continuously liquidated its previous excess inventory and limited orders based on the customers' demands.

The Company's distributor network consisted of 14 distributors in 12 provinces during the third quarter of 2018, compared to the same amount of distributors in 12 provinces during the same period of last year. Most of these distributors, either directly or through their sub-distributors, operate KBS-branded stores. Some wholesale distributors sold the products to multi-branded stores and online stores. As of September 30, 2018, the Company's distributors operated 38 branded franchise stores, primarily in second and third tier cities. KBS products distributed to the fourth and fifth tier cities are primarily sold in multi-branded department stores and online shops. As a comparison, the Company's distributors operated 46 branded franchise stores as of September 30, 2017. 

The following table lists by region the number of retail stores operated by distributors and sub-distributors as of September 30, 2018:

Revenues from corporate stores sales decreased by $0.88 million, or 84.3%, to $0.16 million for the third quarter of 2018 from $1.05 million for the same period of last year. Corporate stores accounted for 4.6% of total revenues for the third quarter of 2018, compared to 22.1% for the same period of last year. The decrease in corporate store sales was due to decreased sales volume.

Revenues from OEM sales increased by $0.21 million, or 51.9% to $0.61 million for the third quarter of 2018 from $0.40 million for the same period of last year. OEM accounted for 17.3% of total revenues for the third quarter of 2018, compared to 8.5% for the same period of last year. The OEM segment is comprised of products that are designed by the customers and manufactured by the Company. The increase in revenues from OEM sales was primarily due to the additional orders increased from the newly added client, Hangzhou Yiyuan Apparel Co.

Cost of Sales and Gross Profit

Total cost of sales decreased by $3.45 million, 54.7%, to $2.86 million for the third quarter of 2018 from $6.31 million for the same period of last year. 

Total gross profit increased by $2.26 million, or 144.1%, to $0.69 million for the third quarter of 2018 from negative gross profit of $1.57 million for the same period of last year. Gross profits for distribution network, corporate stores and OEM were $0.44 million, $0.06 million, and $0.19 million, respectively, for the third quarter of 2018, compared to $0.36 million, negative gross profit of $2.04 million, and $0.10 million, respectively, for the same period of last year. 

Overall gross margin was 19.5% for the third quarter of 2018, compared to negative gross margin of 33.2% for the same period of last year. On a segment basis, gross margins for distribution network, corporate stores and OEM were 16.0%, 35.9%, and 30.6%, respectively, for the third quarter of 2018, compared to 11.1%, -195.0%, and 25.4%, respectively, for the same period of last year.  The significant increase in gross margin for distribution network is due to the launch of newly developed products and price advantages of the Company's new products. The increase in the price has helped offset the decreased volume in sales. Additionally, the VAT decreased from 17% to 16% which contributed to an improved growth margin. The increase in overall gross margin was due to the Company buying back inventory from the distributors and selling them at a discount last year, therefore, when the normal prices were resumed this year, the gross margin returned to a normal range. 

Operating Expenses and Operating Income (Loss)

Distribution and selling expenses decreased by $0.35 million, or 36.1%, to $0.62 million for the third quarter of 2018 from $0.97 million for the same period of last year. The decrease in distribution and selling expenses was mainly due to decreased marketing and advertising expenses.   

Administrative expenses decreased by $0.67 million, or 43.9%, to $0.86 million for the third quarter of 2018 from $1.54 million for same period of last year. The decrease in administrative expenses was mainly due to the decreased expenses for external designing service and client entertainment.

Total loss from operations was $0.77 million for the third quarter of 2018, compared to operating loss of $5.52 million for the same period of last year. Operating loss margin was 21.7% for the third quarter of 2018, compared to operating loss margin of 116.4% for the same period of last year.

Income (Loss) before Income Taxes
