SHENZHEN, China, May 17 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Jingwei International Limited (OTC Bulletin Board: JNGW; "Jingwei" or the "Company"), a leading provider of data mining, interactive marketing and software services in China, today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010.


Net revenue for Q1 2010 increased 30% to $5.1 million compared to $3.9 million in the same quarter last year. Net revenues from both data mining and software services segments saw significant improvement in performance over Q1 2009.

In the quarter, the Company's gross margin improved to 53% from 39% in Q1 2009, while its net profit margin improved to 20% from 16% for the same period.

Net income for the quarter increased 64% to $1.0 million with diluted earnings per share of $0.06, compared to net income of $0.6 million with diluted earnings per share of $0.04 a year ago.

The Company ended the quarter with approximately $9.9 million in cash and equivalents. The Company had no bank debt as of March 31, 2010.

Key financial results for first quarter 2010 versus first quarter 2009 are as follows:


Q1 2010 Q1 2009


Data Mining Net Revenue $3.1 million $2.2 million


Software Services Net Revenue $2.0 million $1.7 million


Net Revenue $5.1 million $3.9 million


Gross Profit $2.7 million $1.5 million


Net Income $1.0 million $0.6 million


Earnings per Diluted Share $0.06 $0.04


Rick Luk, Chief Executive Officer of Jingwei International commented, "We are encouraged with our improvement in revenue and earnings this quarter compared to last year. The strategic agreement with Shenzhen Newway Digital S&T Co., Ltd. in 2009 has helped the Group expand its offering into 3G related value-added services ("VAS"). In the quarter, the Group successfully opened a call center in Jiangsu Province. This serves as an outsourced 'e-Contact' center with integrated telemarketing and customer care capabilities to support the telecom operators. In software services, we continue to see strong demand in the telecom sector as operators are expanding their deployment of internet protocol TV ("IPTV") and digital TV ("DTV") network nationwide. Moreover, the Company has developed and deployed a pilot 'APP Store' application in the province of Sichuan for a major telecom operator for trial in March; and expects to launch a second system in Shanghai in the second half of 2010."


The Company confirmed its previous guidance that for fiscal 2010, it is forecasting to achieve total revenue of between $37.5 million and $42.0 million, net income of between $7.3 million and $8.2 million, and earnings per basic share of between $0.43 and $0.48. This guidance assumes an effective tax rate of 20%. The range of anticipated revenues takes into account both organic growth and the possibility of acquisition related growth within the context of current economic conditions
