Lawrence Chan, CEO of China Display Technologies, stated: “I am very pleased with our performance for the first six months of our fiscal year. The second quarter represents our eighth consecutive quarter of profitability. The increase in revenue and earnings reflects an increase demand for our products from small screen liquid crystal display and LED manufacturers. We continue to implement our plan to develop large-size backlight units for the LCD-TV market. I expect continued double-digit earnings and revenue growth for fiscal 2008.”
