  oBasic and diluted net earnings per share ("EPS") attributable to
    shareholders were $0.12, compared to $0.02 for the first quarter of fiscal

"We are pleased to report strong financial results for the first quarter of
fiscal 2013. We achieved significantly higher revenues and net income than the
same quarter of last year, demonstrating our improved operational performance
and higher returns on invested capital," commented Mr. Xiaojun Zhu, China
HGS's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "Despite the purchase and mortgage
restriction policies imposed on real estate market remained in effect, we
experienced higher sales activities in the quarter driven by our sales and
promotion efforts. These results are very encouraging. We believe the
fundamentals underpinning real estate demand in Tier 3 and Tier 4 cities and
counties remain strong as the population continues to grow in these cities and
counties driven by increased urbanization."

"We now look ahead to 2013 with expectations for somewhat relaxed government
policies on the real estate industry and some rebound in the Chinese housing
market," continued Mr. Zhu. "Given these expectations, we have been focusing
on the investment in three large projects – Mingzhu Beiyuan, Oriental Pearl
Garden, and Yangzhou Pearl Garden. We expect to complete the construction of
these three multi-building large apartment complexes in two to three years. We
have already started pre-sales and signed some sales contracts with buyers. We
expect these three large projects to provide us significant revenue and income
growth in 2014 and beyond," concluded Mr. Xiaojun Zhu.

Financial Results for the First Quarter of Fiscal 2013

Revenues increased by 339.8% to approximately $11.0 million for the first
quarter of fiscal 2013 from approximately $2.5 million for the same period in
the last year.The total GFA sold during the quarter was 13,028 square meters,
representing over three times increase from 3,877 square meters sold in the
same quarter of last year. A significant portion of revenue during the first
quarter of fiscal 2013 was from the sales of our commercial units inventory in
NanDajie Project (Mingzhu Xinju project) with a total GFA of 4,545.88 square
meters for a total contract amount of approximately $5.4 million.

Gross profit was approximately $6.5 million for the first quarter of fiscal
2013 as compared to approximately $1.4 million for the first quarter of fiscal
2012, representing an increase of $5.1 million. The higher gross profit was
mainly attributable to the increase in sales. The overall gross profit as a
percentage of revenue increased to 58.7% during the first quarter of fiscal
2013 from 57.7% for the same quarter of last year, mainly due to higher sales
of commercial units, which have higher average selling price per square meter
compared to that of residential properties.

Total operating expenses increased to $722,065 for the first quarter of fiscal
2013 from $361,213 for the first quarter of fiscal 2012 as a result of more
sales and marketing activities, increased sales commission, higher executive
compensation, taxes, and office expenses. However, as a percentage of total
sales, operating expenses declined to 6.6% from 14.4% in the same quarter of
last year, demonstrating an improved operating efficiency achieved in this
quarter,

The Company reported net income of approximately $5.5 million for the first
quarter of fiscal 2013, as compared to net income of $1.0 million for the
first quarter of fiscal 2012, representing an increase of $4.5 million. The
higher net income was primarily due to the increase in revenue.

As of December 31, 2012, the Company had total cash and restricted cash
balance of approximately $1.7 million, decreased by $0.5 million compared to
$2.2 million cash and restricted cash balance as of September 30, 2012.
