* Net income per share for the first quarter of the fiscal year 2011 was $0.31 (basic and diluted, based on 12.93 million basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding), compared to net income per share of $1.25 for the same period of the last year (basic and diluted, based on 1.53 million weighted average shares outstanding)














Net revenue for the three months ended August 31, 2010 was $21.19 million as compared to $12.26 million for the same period last year, an increase of $8.93 million, or approximately 72.88%. The significant increase in net revenue is mainly attributable to good execution of the Company's geographic expansion strategy. Supported by new production plants in Xi'an and Shidu, sales volume of concrete products increased approximately 125.09% for the quarter ended August 31, 2010 as compared to the same period last year. The increase in net revenue also resulted from technical solution services provided to a Tianjin concrete producer since late March 2010 with approximately $1.22 million in sales recorded during this quarter.

Gross profit for the three months ended August 31, 2010 was $6.13 million, an increase of approximately 154.85%, as compared to $2.41 million in the prior year period. The significant increase in gross profit was primarily driven by higher sales from geographic expansion, development of technical solution services, and vertical integration with one sand and stone vendor into the Company's product line.

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended August 31, 2010 were $1.44 million as compared to $0.39 million for the same period of the last year, an increase of $1.05 million or approximately 270.83%. The increase in G&A expenses was primarily due to the business expansion and higher professional fees incurred as a public company.

Operating income for the three months ended August 31, 2010 was $4.69 million, an increase of $2.67 million or approximately 132.50%, as compared to $2.02 million for the same period last year. The increase was mainly due to increased net revenue.

Net income was $3.98 million for the three months ended August 31, 2010, an increase of $2.07 million or approximately 108.54%, as compared to $1.91 million for the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to   higher sales resulting from robust business expansion and high margin business. Net income per share for the first quarter of the fiscal year 2011 was $0.31 (basic and diluted, based on 12.93 million basic and diluted weighted average shares outstanding), compared to net income per share of $1.25 for the same period of the last year (basic and diluted, based on 1.53 million weighted average shares outstanding). On September 28, 2009, the Company effectuated a 1-for-10 reverse stock split of the Company's common stock (the "Reverse Stock Split"). Upon the Reverse Stock Split, ten (10) shares of the outstanding common stock were automatically converted into one (1) share of common stock.

Financial Condition

As of August 31, 2010, we had cash and cash equivalents of $903,715. We have historically funded our working capital needs from operations, advance payments from customers, bank borrowings, and capital from shareholders. Our working capital requirements are influenced by the level of our operations, the numerical and dollar volume of our project contracts, the progress of our contract execution, and the timing of accounts receivable collections.

The following table sets forth a summary of our cash flows for the periods indicated:

Net cash provided by operating activities was $0.33 million for the three months ended August 31, 2010, an increase of $1.21 million or 138%, as compared to $0.88 million used in operating activities for the same period last year. The increase of net cash provided by operating activities was due to the increase of trade accounts payable. Accounts receivable increased as well. The trade accounts receivable increased because of the growing sales. We typically had long-term annual and multi-year contracts with our major customers. We entered into varying payment terms with our customers ranging from payment before delivery, payment on delivery or up to 1 year after the project completion. As of August 31, 2010, trade accounts receivable with aging over twelve months old amounted to $1.85 million only 2.97% of total trade accounts receivable.

Business Outlook

Mr. Yang commented, "Looking forward, we will continue our geographic expansion and development projects in our target markets where we see the greatest potential. We will also continue to work on improving operating profitability. We expect that the successful execution of these strategies will generate additional revenue and earnings growth."
