Comments on the First Quarter

Revenues in the first fiscal quarter ended September 30, 2010 were generated by our Malaysian subsidiary, Info-Accent Sdn Bhd, from the operations of our mobile VoIP calls and mobile advertising business which accounted for 73% of our total revenues. Revenues from our new renewable energy segment accounted for 27% of our total revenues.

Gross profit for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 was $1.25 million. The gross profit derived from our mobile VoIP calls and mobile advertising segment was $807,465 or 65% of our total gross profit while gross profit from our renewable energy segment was $438,943 or 35%. Gross profit margin from our new renewable energy segment was 20% compared with 13.8% from our mobile VoIP calls and mobile advertising segment.

Income before tax for the first quarter of fiscal 2011 totaled $890,858. Operating profit margin from our new renewable energy segment was 17.6% compared with 8.6% from our mobile VoIP calls and mobile advertising segment. The higher operating margin from our new renewable energy segment was attributed to a higher gross profit margin and lower operating expenses compared to our mobile VoIP calls and mobile advertising segment.

Business Outlook

During the last quarter, the Company expanded the scope of its strategic partnership with Powernique Technology Sdn Bhd to include the production and sale of torrefied wood commonly known as biocoal to the U.S. and countries within the European Union. Torrefied wood can replace 20% of the coal used in a co-firing application for pulverized coal plant. 

Stringent European Union (EU) regulatory requirements and broad public support for renewable initiatives have accelerated the demand for torrefied wood in Europe. Currently, the 27 nations of the EU have agreed to raise the share of renewables in the energy mix to 21% for electricity and 20% for heat by 2020. As a result of these regulatory requirements, growing public awareness; and the Kyoto Protocol, the market for biomass in Europe is strong and growing. According to the European Biomass Association, the EU will increase its current biomass consumption from 13 million tons annually to 100 million tons by 2010.

"We are encouraged by the performance of our new renewable energy segment," said Aik Fun Chong, President and CEO of GLMB. "Results of GLMB for first quarter fiscal 2011 have demonstrated that the Company's profitable growth initiatives have proven to be effective within the constraints of a competitive market environment."
