Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ are the number of recruitment advertisements placed; sales orders received and customer contracts executed during the remaining weeks of the third quarter of 2012; any accounting adjustments that may occur during the quarterly close; fluctuations in the value of the renminbi against the US dollar and other currencies; behavioral and operational changes of customers in meeting their human resource needs as they respond to evolving social, economic and political changes in China as well as stock market volatilities; introduction by competitors of new or enhanced products or services; price competition in the market for the various human resource services that the company provides in China; acceptance of new products and services developed or introduced by the company outside of the human resources industry; and fluctuations in general economic conditions.
