"We continued to ramp our business throughout 2012. We achieved strong year-over-year growth in both revenue and gross profit, and grew our customer base more than 63%. Our bottom-line performance in the fourth quarter was impacted by accruals for bad debt provision of RMB17.1 million. We believe that by taking this charge in the fourth quarter, we will be able to help stabilize our business in the future by bringing our accounts receivables down to a more prudent level and reducing our exposure to bad debt risk," said Mr. Song Wang, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ChinaCache. "In the second half of 2012, we began transitioning our customer acquisition strategy to more effectively target high-quality, long-term customers for whom we can be a value-added service provider. We have now re-aligned our sales efforts to concentrate on specific verticals, which we believe will support our growth and continued leadership in China's CDN and Internet services market."
