Management Commentary:
"Our investment in our Chinese operations continues to exceed all our expectations. For the three months ended June 30, 2011, Glamsmile Asia generated $900k in revenues and approximately $400k in profits for the first quarter prior to taxes and outside shareholders interest. This is a 50% increase in revenue for the same year ago quarter. We anticipate further growth in China and a new fourth studio is expected to open in Wenzhou, China in September, 2011. We are certainly looking forward to getting Glamsmile Asia positioned as one of the leading luxury brands in China as well as the other emerging markets," said Guy De Vreese, CEO of Remedent, Inc.
