Cost of sales for the year ended June 30, 2011 totaled $9 million or 43.6% of revenue, an increase of 54% compared to $5.8 million or 42% of revenue for the year ended June 30, 2010. The increase in cost of revenue was primarily attributable to increased depreciation of advertising equipment, labor and raw material cost.

Gross profit for the year ended June 30, 2011 totaled $11.6 million, an increase of 42% compared to $8.2 million for the year ended June 30, 2010. The increase in gross profit was in line with revenue growth as the Company secured more advertising contracts during the period.

The slight decrease in gross profit margin during the 2011 fiscal year as compared to the 2010 fiscal year was mainly due to the increased maintenance cost of advertising equipment, and the increase of labor and raw material cost during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2011. Specifically, the decrease in outdoor billboard margins was due to the increased amount of new constructions and the lead time needed to build advertising clients.

City Navigator margins increased from 47.4% for the fiscal 2010 year to 67% for the fiscal 2011 year. Occupancy of this platform has increased steadily year over year with room for growth. Today, the Company owns and operates 52 City Navigator kiosks. Each kiosk has ten advertising spots available on a rolling basis and today is operating at approximately 60% capacity. Going forward the Company will focus on maximizing the occupancy rate for the available advertising space.

Selling, general and administrative expenses totaled $4.0 million and $1.9 million for the years ended June 30, 2011 and 2010, respectively, which primarily consist of salaries of sales personnel, commissions for sales representatives, rent expenses and related administrative expenses. The increase was due to an increased sales effort which is in line with the increase in revenue, higher maintenance and professional fees, and other expenses related to the growth of the business.

Net income attributable to China New Media Corp. for the year ended June 30, 2011 totaled $4.9 million, an increase of 16% as compared to $4.2 million for the year ended June 30, 2010.
