Commenting on the second quarter financial results, Mr. Chunlin Wang, CNinsure's chief executive officer, stated, "Amid the industry trend towards the protection business, we adjusted our life insurance product strategy during the second quarter of 2013 by shifting our sales focus from participating policies to traditional protection policies which generally generates lower per policy premiums but have a higher imbedded value. This shift was one of the major reasons for the drastic decline of our first year life insurance premiums and the lower-than-expected growth of our total net revenues, although the number of new life insurance policies during the period remained flat year-over-year. Despite the negative impact on life insurance business volume in the near-term, we believe this move is conducive to enhancing the long-term sustainability of our life insurance business and prepares us well for capitalizing on the growth opportunities arising from the deregulation of prices for traditional life insurance products.
