BEIJING--(Marketwire - October 18, 2010) -  Zoom Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: ZOOM), a leading China-based manufacturer of mobile phones and other mobile electronic products, today announced preliminary results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2010 that are expected to exceed previous guidance.

Zoom expects to report net revenue in the range of $68 million to $71 million for the third quarter of 2010, which represents a sequential increase of approximately 59 percent to 66 percent from the net revenue of $42.9 million for the second quarter of 2010. This updated expected net revenue is higher than the previous guidance of $55 million to $61 million.

The Company anticipates reporting net income in the range of $3.3 million to $3.5 million for the third quarter of 2010, a sequential increase of approximately 63 percent to 72 percent from the net income of $2.03 million in the second quarter of 2010. This is higher than the previous guidance of $2.7 million to $3.3 million.

Mr. Lei Gu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Zoom Technologies, commented, "Our third quarter preliminary results exceeded our expectations and reflects our momentum and success in the dynamic mobile phone industry in China. We are proud of our continued expansion in the rapidly growing China 3G market and our partnerships with top tier Chinese mobile phone carriers. Contributing to our overall strong revenue results was the continued success of our LEIMONE brand phones, which captured $14 million in revenue in the third quarter. We sold 232,000 units of our LEIMONE brand mobile phones in this quarter, of which 27% were 3G units. We continue to gain market share with our branded phones and remain confident that the strength in our overall EMS business will bring further revenue growth in the remainder of 2010."

All figures in this press release remain subject to the completion of normal quarter-end accounting review procedures by Zoom's independent certified public accountants, which could result in changes to these preliminary figures.

The Company will provide more detail when it releases its financial results for the third quarter of 2010. Details on the earnings release date and conference call will be announced in the coming weeks.
