Mr. Adam Yan, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer ("CEO") and Acting Chief Financial Officer ("CFO"), said, "I'm very pleased to report an acceleration in top-line growth during the second quarter, combined with enhanced cost efficiency. Demand for our logistics, Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) and grocery solutions pushed up total revenue by 61% year-over-year. This rise in revenue was driven by continued retail industry growth, which resulted in increased demand from existing customers as they expanded amid the market rebound. Our restructured sales organization positioned us to capitalize on this trend, allowing us to achieve higher revenue with minimal rise in headcount and other sales costs. The rise in revenue was also driven by the booking of revenues relating to strong order growth during the second half of 2009. Combined with economies of scale, this resulted in adjusted EBITDA of RMB2.1 million on revenue of RMB35.8 million."
