Growth drivers

Our products are increasingly demanded attributable to the following advantages:

-- Market oriented focus. Our alternator and starter products are primarily for mid-to-small sized engine vehicles, which are encouraged in sales by China's government in the stimulus plans. Also the momentum increase of this market segment contributes our sales revenue in and outside China. -- Favorable government policies. China has implemented a series of stimulus policies to bolster its auto industry. Selected Financial performance

Sales revenue increased by approximately $23.6 million, or 59.1%, to approximately $63.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010, compared with $40.0 million of the same period last year. This increase was mainly attributable to the higher increased market demand for our products in and outside China.

Sales revenue from China increased by approximately $18.7 million, or 50.7%, to approximately $55.7 million in the first quarter of 2010, as compared to approximately $37.0 million for the same period last year. This increase was mainly attributable to the higher increased market demand for our products in expanded automobile market. Sales revenue outside China increased by approximately $4.9 million, or 163.7%, to approximately $7.9 million in the first quarter of 2010, compared with approximately $3.0 million for the same period last year. This increase was mainly attributable to the recovery of international automobile market. Export accounted for approximately 12.4% of our total sales revenue in this quarter.

Sales revenue from alternators and starters was $19.5 million and $20.1 million in the three months ended March 31, 2010, as compared to $14.4 million and $13.3 million in the same quarter last year, respectively. Sales in China continue to be our major source of sales revenue. Sales revenue from sales of alternators and starter in China increased by approximately $10.2 million or 37.8% to approximately $37.3 million in the three months ended March 31, 2010 from $27.1 million of the same quarter in 2009. The increase mainly resulted from the increased automobile market in China, especially the market for mid- to-small engine automobiles.

Sales revenue from rods and shafts was $7.4 million in the three months ended March 31, 2010, an increase of $2.4 million from the same period last year. The increase was mainly due to export sales increase of approximately $1.5 million. Sales of engine valve and tappet were approximately $16.7 million in the first quarter of 2010, up $9.4 million from the same period last year. This increase was mainly attributable to the domestic sales increase of approximately $7.7 million.

Our cost of sales increased by approximately $18.1 million, or 60.6%, to approximately $48.0 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010 from approximately $29.9 million during the same period in 2009. This increase was mainly due to the increase of our sales volume. As a percentage of sales revenue, the cost of sales increased slightly by approximately 0.7% to 75.4 % during the three months ended March 31, 2010 from 74.7 % for the same period of 2009. The percentage increase in the first quarter of 2010 was due to fact that a large portion of our total sales revenue was generated from alternators and starters with mid-to-small displacement as compared to the same period last year. Our alternators and starters with small displacement generally have a lower margin than our alternators and starters with larger displacement.

Our gross profit increased by approximately $5.5 million, or 54.8 %, to approximately $15.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010, compared with approximately $10.1 million for the same period in 2009 as a result of increased sales volume driving by the strong market demand for our products. Gross margin was 24.6 % for the three-month period ended March 31, 2010, as compared to 25.3 % of the same period last year. Such slight decrease was mainly due to the increase of the cost of sales on a percentage basis as discussed above.

Our total operating expenses increased by approximately $4.9 million, or 121.7 %, to approximately $ 8.8 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010, as compared to approximately $4.0 million for the same period in 2009. As a percentage of sales revenue, our total expenses increased to 13.9% for the three months ended March 31, 2010, compared from 10.0% for the same period last year. The percentage increase was primarily attributable to the increase of non-cash share-based compensation, selling expenses and research and development expenses as discussed below.

Administrative expenses consist of the costs associated with staff and support personnel who manage our business activities, professional fees paid to third parties and non-cash share-based compensation. Our administrative expenses increased by approximately $2.8 million, or 119.3%, to approximately $5.1 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010, from approximately $2.7 million for the same period last year. As a percentage of sales revenue, administrative expenses increased to 8.0% for the three month ended March 31, 2010, from 5.8% for same period last year. The increases in amount and percentage were mainly due to the non-cash share-based compensation of approximately $1.5 million incurred this quarter, which not incurred last quarter, the consolidation of the operating results of Friend Birch and the increased professional expenses related to the investment in Applaud Group Limited.

Our administrative expenses excluding non-cash share based compensation increased by approximately $1.3 million, or 55.5 %, to approximately $3.6 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010, from approximately $2.3 million for the same period last year. The amount increase was primarily due to the consolidation of the operating results of Friend Birch and the increased professional expenses related to the investment in Applaud Group Limited. As a percentage of sales revenue, administrative expenses excluding non-cash share-based compensation decreased 0.1% to 5.7 % for the three months ended March 31, 2010 from 5.8% for the same period last year. The decrease on a percentage basis was mainly attributable to the increase of sales revenue.

Research and development expenses consist of amounts spent on developing new products, enhancing our existing products, and non-cash share-based compensation. Our research and development expenses increased by $893,297, or 195.8%, to approximately $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010, from $456,232 for the same period last year. As a percentage of sales revenue, research and development expenses increased to 2.1% for three month ended March 31, 2010, from 1.1% for the same period last year. The increases in amount and percentage were mainly due to the non-cash share-based compensation of $91,782 incurred this quarter, which not incurred for the same period last year, the increased expenses associated with development of new products, including alternative energy vehicle parts.

Our research and development expenses excluding non-cash share-based compensation increased $801,515, or 175.7 %, to approximately $1.3 million for the three months ended March 31, 2010 from $456,232 for the same period last year. As a percentage of sales revenue, research and development expenses excluding non-cash share-based compensation increased to 2.0 % from 1.1% for the three months ended March 31, 2009.

As a percentage of sales revenue, selling expenses increased to 3.8% for three months ended March 31, 2010, from 3.0% for the same period last year. The increases in amount was mainly due to the non-cash share-based compensation of $65,419 incurred this quarter, the increases in salaries from the increased sales personnel to expand market share, provision for product warranties and freight resulting from the increased sales volume. The increase in percentage was mainly due to the increases in salaries from the increased sales personnel to expand market share.

Our net finance cost increased by $546,839, or 651.1% to $630,828 for the three months ended on March 31, 2010 from $83,989 for the same period last year. The increase was mainly due to the interest expenses resulted from the enlarged bank loan volume of approximately $18.1 million and the interest income decrease resulting from the reduced volume of restricted cash by end of this quarter.
