Selling and marketing expenses were RMB10.34 million (US$1.64 million) for the second quarter of fiscal 2012 compared with RMB7.71 million during the same period last year.

The increase in G&A expenses was largely due to increase in salary expense. Research and development (“R&D”) expenses decreased to RMB7.57 million (US$1.20 million) from RMB9.80 million during the second quarter of fiscal 2011 as certain R&D projects didn’t happen this quarter.
