Our rapid revenue growth in the fourth quarter of 2010 again demonstrates our strong brand and proven business model. Although new traffic control measures in Beijing may negatively impact certain aspects of Lentuo’s business, they may create new opportunities for us as well. We intend to broaden our portfolio of luxury brands, increase the relative contribution of maintenance services to our total revenues, and leverage our leading brand in the Beijing market, stronger financial position, and operational scale to acquire smaller dealerships at attractive prices.”
