"Our vertically integrated business model with a focus on film distribution positions us favorably to capitalize on the rapidly growing China movie box office," said Bona Founder, Chairman and CEO Yu Dong. "Following a solid year in 2009, we were able to grow our full year 2010 net revenues approximately 38 percent year-over-year and achieved a healthy full year 2010 gross margin of almost 50 percent. We foresee exciting opportunities in 2011, as we target to expand the number of high-quality film projects we invest in, produce and distribute. We will also enhance partnerships with local TV stations to distribute non-theatrical copyright sales abroad. Moreover, our movie theater business, which we acquired in April 2010, is achieving stable and consistent margins and we plan to grow this business prudently, which we believe will help strengthen our distribution network across the country. As consumption in China grows, demand for high-quality movies will continue to rise and we believe we have the experience and business fundamentals to grow our business and deliver long-term shareholder value."
