    Financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010

    China Executive Education reported total revenue of $4.60 million for the second quarter ended June 30, 2010, representing an increase of 3.40% sequentially from $4.45 million in the first quarter, or an increase of 145.17% from $1.87 million for the same period in 2009. Because the Company began operations on April 23, 2009, a complete year-over-year comparison is not available.

    The Company's proprietary training courses generated 36.58% of its total revenue in the second quarter of 2010, and its featured lectures business generated the remaining 63.42% of total revenue. Proprietary training courses revenue was $1.68 million for the second quarter of 2010 and was generated through training programs provided to more than 1,177 Chinese business owners and executives from multiple provinces and industries during the three months ended June 30, 2010.

    Overall cost of sales was $0.77 million, or 16.69% of revenue, in the second quarter of fiscal 2010. Gross profit was $3.83 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2010. Gross margin for the period was 83.31%.

General and administrative ("G&A") expenses were approximately $0.74 million for the second quarter, or 53.21% of total operating expenses. Selling and G&A expenses represented 14.24% and 16.20% of total revenues for the quarter, respectively.

    Financial results for the six months ended June 30, 2010

    China Executive Education Corp. reported total revenue of $9.04 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. The Company's proprietary training courses generated $3.92 million, or 43.30% of total revenue, for the six-month period. The featured lectures business generated $5.13 million, or 56.70% of total revenue, for the same period. Because the Company began operations on April 23, 2009, a complete year-over-year comparison is not available.

    For the six months ended June 30, 2010, the Company provided its training programs to more than 2,741 Chinese business owners and executives from different provinces and industries. Total operating expenses were $3.28 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010.

    Net income was $2.69 million for the six months ended June 30, 2010. Basic and diluted earnings per share were $0.12 for the six-month period.

    The strength of the Company's six-month results was attributable to a number of factors, including strong market demand for quality executive training programs in China and an effective execution in its Hangzhou and Shanghai locations. The Company believes that its intelligent business model and early positioning in its target market have given it a considerable advantage over its competitors. Sales revenue has increased dramatically since the Company was established on April 23, 2009, at which time only 11 training courses were offered to students. At this point, the Company has expanded its course offerings to more than 22 courses, resulting in greater sales opportunities and increased business. Furthermore, additional marketing and sales efforts, as well as other advertising efforts, were implemented during the six months ended June 30, 2010.

    Financial Condition

    As of June 30, 2010, China Executive Education had approximately $6.69 million in cash and cash equivalents, $4.20 million in working capital, and no long-term debt. Shareholders' equity at June 30, 2010 was approximately $4.52 million, an increase of 26.30% from approximately $3.58 million at December 31, 2009.

    Business Outlook

    China Executive Education believes that as the number of entrepreneurs and affluent businessmen in China increases, it will be able to continue to expand its network into other commercial cities of China to offer a variety of business programs that serve their needs. The Company believes that its proprietary business training programs serve a need in the rapidly changing and surging economy of China. At the same time, the Company looks forward to collaborating with other education consulting companies to offer more courses to its clients in different regions of China, which it believes will continue to lead to a strong increase in the numbers of companies it can serve.

    Mr. Liang stated, "Our client base and revenues have grown continuously from month to month since our inception, and we fully anticipate sustained growth for the foreseeable future. As we enter the second half of fiscal 2010, we remain focused on the continued expansion of our business model as we extend our national sales network and increase our marketing efforts in order to capitalize on the numerous untapped growth opportunities in China's commercial cities. Additionally, we intend to broaden our course offerings and services to yield greater revenues in 2010 and beyond. As ever, we remain dedicated to becoming China's top provider of business training services. The Company looks forward optimistically to the future and to sharing additional new and positive developments with our shareholders as they transpire."
