“During the quarter, we added a total of nine new learning centers, seven of which were in Shanghai and the remaining two in Beijing. Over the past three quarters in Beijing we have concentrated on improving classroom utilization in our existing facilities rather than rapidly increasing the number of centers. We are encouraged by the progress we have seen in this regard since the Chinese New Year term last year, and believe we are now ready to shift our focus back toward a new phase of investment in learning centers over the coming quarters. By building out our capacity, we can continue to meet the ongoing demand from parents and students in this essential market.”“In addition to our ongoing focus on improving our center operations, we also further enhanced our content offerings by kicking off two new exciting initiatives in the quarter. We signed with McGraw-Hill Education a breakthrough agreement in which we will cooperate to co-develop and co-brand English materials for junior high and high school students under our ‘Le Jia Le’ English offering. We also launched an innovative and proprietary classroom teaching solution called ‘ICS,’ which stands for ‘Intelligent Classroom System,’ in November. ICS makes in-class learning more interactive and stimulating by facilitating the broadcast of our own multimedia content using projectors and whiteboards. ”
