The company recently won bids to supply equipment and integration services for the China Mobile Multimedia Broadcasting (CMMB) project. Among the 34 bidders, GrenTech won all the 7 bid sections.

BMP Sunstone (BJGP) climbed 26% after Sanofi-Aventis (SNY) reportedly acquired the company for 10 cents per share, valuing the company at $520.6 million, representing a 30% premium over its Oct. 27 closing.

China VoIP & Digital Telecom (CVDT) gained 23.1% last week. As part of its branding strategy, the company recently launched its new Web site and changed its name to China Intelligence Information Systems.

Net profit increased to $41 million, or $1.08 per share, from $37.4 million, or 97 cents per share, recorded in the year-ago period.

China Shen Zhou Mining & Resources (SHZ) plunged 29.7%, after reports showed that the company does not meet the criteria of having a market cap exceeding $150 million and, therefore, does not qualify to be included in the new Rare Earth Metals ETF being launched by Van Eck. China Green Agriculture (CGA) fell 14.9% on concerns of lawsuits alleging the payment of value added tax, corporate income tax and land acquisition issues.

Among others, GigaMedia Limited (GIGM), Orsus Xelent Technologies (ORS) and VisionChina Media (VISN) eroded around 11.7%, 10.4% and 10.1%, respectively.
