Financial Results

Net revenue for the three months ended November 30, 2007 was $5,357,190, an increase of 208%, from net revenue of $1,739,287 for the comparable period in 2006. This gain in revenue was attributed to increased customer demand and sales.

Gross profit for the three months ended November 30, 2007 was $1,809,120, an increase of 233% from $543,206 for the comparable period in 2006. The increase in gross profit was primarily due to revenue generated by increased customer demand and production, and consequently increased sales.

General and administrative expenses for the three months ended November 30, 2007 were $518,765, an increase of 54% from $337,023 for the comparable period in 2006. The increase was primarily attributable to the hiring of additional personnel and the costs in setting up an administrative office in the United States.

Key Developments

During the second quarter of fiscal 2008, China Sun Group continued to serve its customers in the PRC and capture new customers in international markets such as Light-Future Co. Ltd. in South Korea. The Company continues to pursue new market expansion into East Asia, Southeast Asia, Europe and the United States, where demand for lithium ion battery components to power mobile devices and consumer electronics exceeds their supply.

Concurrent with increasing production and sales in the PRC, the Company remained committed to innovating its products. It hired two new research and development engineers, a graduate researcher and six chemistry graduates at its electro-chemical testing center to shore up its research and development team.

China Sun Group also completed the preliminary trial phase of its tri-component anode product, which, when commercialized, will provide greater safety and discharge at a stronger electrical current for use in heavier capacity equipment and vehicles. In addition, China Sun Group improved the quality of its production lines by adding advanced technology that provided amalgamation capabilities.

Since acquiring the prospecting and mining rights to a cobalt mine in the African Congo, China Sun Group has made plans to construct a processing plant in the Congo beginning in the third quarter of fiscal 2008. Direct access to sourcing the raw material, cobalt ore, from the mine will help China Sun Group avoid export limitations imposed by the Congo, reduce freight expenses, and support a stable supply of cobalt ore for production of finished products, which will include lithium ion batteries.
