Global-Tech Advanced Innovations Announces Continued Profitability For Third Quarter Of Fiscal 2012

Mr. Sham continued, “As previously announced, we are nearing completion of our exit from the home appliance business and, with the cooperation from our customers, were able to manufacture additional inventory during the transitional period to ensure a smooth phase out process for both the Company and its customers. As stated above, the increase in purchase orders from customers seeking to increase inventory positively impacted our financial results for this quarter.”

Mr. Sham concluded, “Our assets, particularly our liquid resources, continue to increase and, as of December 31, 2011, on a per share basis, far exceed the current trading price of the Company’s stock. We believe we can use resources previously dedicated to the home appliance segment more effectively by reallocating these resources and the efforts of the Company’s management and employees towards business opportunities that we believe will provide better margins and positive returns on investment.”
