Hollysys Automation Technologies Announces Two Significant Contract Wins Of High-Speed Rail Signaling System Valued At US$ 51.47 Million





BEIJING, Oct. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Hollysys Automation Technologies, Ltd. (NASDAQ: HOLI) ("Hollysys" or the "Company"), a leading provider of automation and control technologies and applications in China, announced today that it signed two sizable contracts to provide the Automatic Train Protection (ATP) equipment and system for the 200-250km/h and 300-350km/h high-speed trains, and contract size for each is RMB 211.17 million or USD $34.36 million, and RMB 105.17 million or USD 17.11 million respectively. The delivery of the products will be in several batches and completed by the early of 2014.

Recall, the on-board signaling equipment ATP (Automatic Train Protection) works together with the ground-based signaling equipment TCC (Train Control Center) and RBC (Radio Block Center), as the critical control elements in the high-speed railway signaling systems to ensure the safety and reliability of the high-speed railway operation.

Dr. Changli Wang, CEO and Chairman of Hollysys, commented: "High-speed rail signaling system is one of the pillar businesses of Hollysys, together with industrial automation, nuclear and subway automation businesses. We are very pleased of the two significant high-speed rail ATP contract wins, which demonstrate our solid market position, leading technology and products reliability.

Last year China's high-speed rail construction was slowed down influenced by the Ministry of Railway reorganization. From January to July this year, the railway fixed asset investment is only accomplished by 40% according to China's 12 th Five Year Plan for this year. From August this year, the China Rail Corporation (CRC) started the procurement of trains. In view of the importance of rail construction for driving the whole economy's growth and related documents issued by the central government, we are expecting the investment will be increased in the second half of this year and the railway construction momentum will continue in the next few years. Besides, the intercity lines construction will be of great prospect, and we are actively developing our intercity high-speed train control signaling systems in compliance with the new requirements.

Going into the future, Hollysys will leverage its strong R&D capability, solid execution, advanced software solution and reliable products operation, to drive the company to be one of the leading rail signaling system technology and product providers in the world, and create value for our shareholders."
