Mr. Xianfu Han, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of China ACM,
commented, "Although we experienced a year-over-year decrease in
revenue growth for the first quarter of FY 2013, such decrease was
principally due to the suspension of some portable plants. In order
to curtail future losses, we will continue our efforts to improve the
collection of account receivables, expand our plant network, and
increase our client base for the rest of the year. We are cautiously
optimistic that we will be able to reduce our losses during the next
quarter and the rest of the year." 
First Quarter FY 2013 Results 
Revenue. Our revenue is primarily generated from sales of our
advanced ready-mix concrete products, manufacturing services and
technical consulting services. For the three months ended September
30, 2012, we generated revenue of $30.8 million, c
ompared to $44.6
million during the same period in 2011, a decrease of $13.8 million,
or 31%. The decrease in our revenue is due primarily to decreased
revenue from our manufacturing services and concrete sales for the
three months ended September 30, 2012. 
Our concrete sales revenue was $28.9 million for the three months
ended September 30, 2012, a decrease of $11.2 million or 28% from the
three months ended September 30, 2011. The decrease in revenues from
concrete sales was principally due to the decreased demand of
concrete sales in line with slowing down of the housing market and
overall economic growth. 
Revenue from our manufacturing services segment was $1.9 million for
the three months ended September 30, 2012, a decrease of $2.6
million, or 57%, as compared to the three months ended September 30,
2011. Such decrease in revenue was attributable principally to the
suspension of operations of certain of our portable plants during the
three months ended September 30, 2012, in light of an increase in
audit inspections at high speed rail construction sites around China
resulting from the recent heightened public scrutiny of railway
safety in China.  
Gross Profit. Gross profit was $7.3 million for the three months
ended September 30, 2012, as compared to $10.8 million for the three
months ended September 30, 2011. Our gross profit for the sale of
concrete was $7 million, or 24% of revenue, for the three months
ended September 30, 2012, as compared to $9.9 million, or 25% of
revenue, for the same period last year. The decreased gross profit
margin reflects lower demand and lower prices for our concrete
products in Beijing as compared to the same period last year.  
Our gross profit with respect to our manufacturing services segment
was $0.3 million, or 16% of revenue, for the three months ended
September 30, 2012, a decrease of $0.5 million, as compared to $0.8
million, or 18% of revenue, for the same period last year. Such
decrease was principally due to the suspension of operations of
certain of our portable plants for three months ended September 30,
2012. 
Provision for doubtful accounts. We incurred provision for doubtful
accounts of $9.3 million for the three months ended September 30,
2012, an increase of $2.3 million, as compared to $7 million for the
three months ended September 30, 2011. An estimate of doubtful
accounts is recorded when collection of the full amount is no longer
probable. Known bad debts are written off against allowance for
doubtful accounts when identified. The accrual ratio is 5% for
accounts receivable past due less than one year, 50% for accounts
receivable past due from one to two years and 100% for accounts
receivable past due beyond two years. In accordance with our
allowance for doubtful accounts policy, at the end of each quarter,
we conduct an aging analysis of each customer's arrears to determine
whether allowance for doubtful accounts is adequate. In establishing
allowance for doubtful accounts, we consider historical experience,
economy, trends in the construction industry, the expected
collectability of amount receivable that are past due, and the
expected collectability of overdue receivables.  
Selling, General and Administrative Expenses. Selling, general and
administrative expenses consist of sales commissions, advertising and
marketing costs, office rent and expenses, costs associated with
staff and support personnel who manage our business activities, and
professional and legal fees paid to third parties. We incurred
selling, general and administrative expenses of $3.2 million for the
three months ended September 30, 2012, an increase of $0.8 million,
or 32%, as compared to $2.4 million for the three months ended
September 30, 2011. The increase was principally due to an increase
in consulting services, salary and employment benefit expense,
conference expenses and meal & entertainment expenses, and office
expenses. 
Net Income (Loss). We recognized net loss of approximately $5.4
million for the three months ended September 30, 2012, as compared to
net income of approximately $3.1 million for the three months ended
September 30, 2011, a decrease of $8.5 million. Such decrease in net
income was primarily due to the decrease in gross profits of concrete
sales and manufacturing service, the increase in provision of
doubtful accounts, consulting service associated with the going
private transaction and selling, general, and administrative expense
from an increase in our labor base and scale of operations.
