Mr. Youliang Wang, Chief Executive Officer of China Modern Agricultural Information, commented, "We released the Company's projected earnings for the fiscal year 2012 in May 2012. Driven by the strong demand of raw milk in China, we saw a stronger growth of our business and are updating the projected earnings for the fiscal year 2012. During the twelve months ended June 30, 2012, we saw the sales price of milk increased by approximately 53% to USD 0.50 per kg comparing with the 2011 fiscal year. Due to the adaption of our new business model since June 2011, the operating costs have been dramatically decreased, which improved the profit margins. Our acquisition of Yulong Cattle in November 2011 further improved our capacity of milk production, which is an important driver for our revenue growth."

Mr. Wang, continued, "The demand for raw milk in China will stay strong in the next several years, which will be a key driver for our business growth. With our new business model in place, management has been able to focus additional time and resources on building our customer base and cultivating industry relationships, and I am confident China Modern will keep delivering strong top-line and bottom-line results."
