Jazy Zhang

Thank you, Rich. Good morning to those of you in Asia and good evening to those of you in the West. I will first read the prepared remarks from our President, Ms. Wei Liu, and then I will walk you through our financial highlights and update you on our game development progress.

We are pleased to report that our strong start in 2012 has continued to gain momentum this quarter with continuous sequential growth in both our top and bottom line, which was mainly driven by sustained performance from ZT Online 2. We’re also pleased that the successful release of ZT Online 2 first expansion pack has led the game to new heights and as a result we continue to see an improvement in both active paying accounts and average revenue per user this quarter.

We also made a breakthrough in terms of game offering through our collaboration with Qihoo 360 to launch the Micro-Client version of ZT Online 2 changing online on Qihoo 360 platform. This Micro-Client version provides opportunities for less (inaudible) to experience the core element of ZT Online 2 through a much smaller installation game file. Our collaboration with Qihoo 360 will enable us to tap into its large and diverse user base, which will provide us with opportunities to draw new gamers to our titles. Going beyond this collaboration, we look forward to forming more business partnerships and strategic alliances with online platforms in China in the future.
