"During the quarter, we achieved several milestones that strategically positioned us for strong future growth.

Second, we opened new clinics in additional Tier II cities in Sichuan province, which represents a first step to roll out our unique chain of clinics and hospitals, thereby expanding our presence in these underdeveloped markets."  

Third Quarter 2010 Results

For the quarter ended September 30, 2010, customer service revenue increased 34.5% to $3.2 million from $2.4 million in the comparable period of 2009 due to a continued growth in customer base and demand for the Company's cosmetology services. On a sequential basis, revenue increased 15.6% to from $2.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2010 as the summer is traditionally a strong season for cosmetic procedures.

The Company's gross profit increased 25.3% to $2.2 million in the third quarter of 2010 compared to $1.8 million in the same period of 2009. Gross margin declined to 68.8% from 73.8% in the third quarter of 2009. Although there was a slight decline in gross margin, the company still shows relatively high earnings ability compared to the industry.

For the third quarter of 2010, operating expenses increased 73.1% to $1.6 million, or 49.3% of revenue, from $0.9 million, or 38.3% of revenue, in the third quarter of 2009. The increase was primarily due to the Company's enhanced marketing efforts and higher professional fees associated with being a public company. Noticeably, advertising costs for the third quarter of 2010 increased 363.3% to $0.5 million, or 16.3% of revenue, from $0.1 million, or 4.7% of revenue, for the same period of 2009. The increase was mainly due to the management's efforts to strengthen the marketing activities in order to increase sales. Selling, general and administrative expenses increased 12.3% to $0.9 million, or 26.8% of revenue, from $0.8 million, or 32.1% of revenue, for the same period of 2009. On a sequential basis, total operating expenses declined to 49.3% of sales from 53.7% in the second quarter of 2010.

As a result, operating income decreased 26.2% to $0.6 million compared to $0.8 million in the third quarter of 2009.

Net income decreased 46.7% to $0.4 million, or $0.02 per diluted share, for the three months ended September 30, 2010 compared to $0.8 million, or $0.06 per diluted share, for the same period of 2009. Weighted average diluted shares outstanding increased to 16.4 million shares from 13.5 million shares in the third quarter of 2009.

The effective tax rate for the Company for the three months ended September 30, 2010 and 2009 was 31.5% and 7.3%, respectively. The increase was primarily due to the expiration of the 10% income tax rate in 2009. From 2010 onwards, China SHESAYS has an income tax rate of 25%.

Nine Months Results

Revenue for the nine months ended September 30, 2010, increased 35.5% to $9.2 million compared to $6.8 million in the same period of 2009.
