China Information Technology Inc. Secures Contract Wins of Over $30 Million in the Second Quarter of 2011

SHENZHEN, China, July 15, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Information Technology, Inc. (Nasdaq: CNIT), a leading provider of information technologies and display technologies based in China, today announced that it signed $30.4 million in new contracts during the second quarter of 2011. The Company's core IT business segment contributed 65%, or $19.8 million, of the total contract wins, while its Digital Display segment contributed 35%, or $10.6 million.

The Company's second quarter contract wins came from 28 provinces and provincial cities in China. Some of the important contracts secured include:

-- $3.5 million for additional works with the Shenzhen Traffic Police Bureau. The contract includes the design and creation of three tailored traffic management systems: the "On-Stop Driving License Processing System," the "Consolidated Vehicle-Related Business Auditing and Monitoring System," and the "Vehicle Inspection and License Plate Management System," respectively;

-- $2.4 million for a follow-on project for the Shenzhen Police TETRA system;

-- $1.8 million for a follow-on project for the Shenzhen Summer Universiade security management system; and

-- $1.7 million for a follow-on project for the Shenzhen - Hong Kong border e-Channel systems.

Mr. Jiang Huai Lin, Chairman and CEO of the Company, commented, "We experienced some weakness in terms of signing new contracts in the second quarter this year. The reasons for this were twofold, firstly, a number of government projects have been slowed as a result of recent monetary tightening measures in China, and secondly, we have been more discerning in the contracts we sign due to previously stated efforts towards improving the quality of our earnings. We have become more selective with the profitability and accounts receivable turnover of our projects. At the same time, our Digital Display business segment contributed 35% of the contract value this quarter, which reaffirms our decision earlier this year to expand this area of our business. Despite the slowdown in our information technology contracts, we believe there will be continuing opportunities for us in both business segments."
