ChinaNet participated in the 2010 Taipei International Chain and Franchise Autumn Exhibition in September to promote its brand to the over 200 franchise businesses in attendance. With thousands of SMEs in Taiwan looking to expand into China and vice versa, the Company sees tremendous long term growth potential. ChinaNet will initially offer a series of its premium services to franchise owners in Taiwan and expects to sign approximately 10 to 15 new international customers by the end of 2010.

Management is in the final stages of due diligence on several small acquisitions which include technology solutions and advertising service platforms. These opportunities are aimed at helping the company accelerate its IIM and online management tools, which will drive new franchisor additions while helping existing customers meet their expansion targets while providing a much broader spectrum of services to their franchisee base.
