Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2011 Results of Operations

Revenue

For the three months ended May 31, 2011, we achieved total revenue of $16.9 million representing a decrease of 2%, as compared to $17.2 million for the same period in 2010. The decrease was mainly attributable to the second semester of fiscal 2011 began in February for four of our schools in Hunan province (Changsha HQ, Shaoshan HQ, Shaoshan and Shaoyang), as a result, the tuition and fees were proportionately recognized in five months from February to June. In fiscal 2010, the second semester began in March to June in all of our schools and tuition and fees were proportionately recognized in four months from March to June 2010. This also led to decrease of revenue from vocational education for the three months ended May 31, 2011 over the same period of the prior year.

During the quarter, approximately 59.3% of our revenue, or $10 million, was generated from vocational education services. Campus service fee improved to $6.9 million for the three months ended May 31, 2011, an increase of 32% compared to $5.2 million in the same period of 2010.

For the nine months ended May 31, 2011, we achieved total revenue of $46 million, representing an increase of $8.9 million, or 24% as compared to $37.1 million for the nine months ended May 31, 2010. Our revenue for the first nine months of fiscal year 2011 is very close to the revenue of $47.1 million that we achieved in the full fiscal year 2010.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the third quarter of fiscal year 2011 ended May 31, 2011 was $6.0 million as compared to $6.4 million for the period ended May 31, 2010. The decrease of $0.4 million, or 6%, was primarily due to the decrease of revenue from vocational education and the increase of cost of campus services.

Net Income

Our net income for the three months ended May 31, 2011 was $4.9 million, representing a decrease of $0.6 million or 10% as compared to $5.5 million. For the nine months ended May 31, 2011, our net income increased $3.4 million or 29% to $15.1 million, as compared to $11.7 million for the same period of last year. Our net income for the past nine months has already exceeded the $13.6 million that we earned in the twelve months of fiscal year 2010. Basic and diluted earnings per share were $0.15 per share based on 33 million shares outstanding for the quarter, compared with basic and diluted earnings per share of $0.17 achieved in the same period a year ago.

Change in Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of May 31, 2011, we had approximately $10.6 million in cash, up $5.4 million from $5.2 million as of August 31, 2010. Total current assets and total assets were $28.1 million and $69.0 million as of May 31, 2011. Total current liabilities and total liabilities were $7.7 million and $10.9 million as of May 31, 2011.
