    Third Quarter 2011 Results

    • Revenue increased 29.7% year over year to $45.5 million 
    • Net income was $3.2 million, or $0.13 per diluted share
    • Adjusted net income was $3.5 million, or $0.14 per diluted share(*)
    • Mr. Shudong Xia, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, purchased 174,763 shares of the Company's common stock pursuant to a Rule 10b5-1 stock purchase plan
    • The Beijing Municipal Government, through Zhongguancun Development Group, agreed to contribute an aggregate of RMB 50 million (approximately $7.69 million) in cash into the Group Company's subsidiary, Beijing Transwiseway in exchange for a 10% equity interest in Beijing Transwiseway


     

    "We are pleased to report another quarter of solid revenue growth," commented Mr. Shudong Xia, "We have begun seeing our Telematics Service Platform ("TSP") gaining momentum.. Our cooperation with Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. on a new traffic information system, as well as our successive transactions with Dongfeng-Yulon Motors Co. Ltd. and Xiamen King Long Motor Group Co., Ltd. to preinstall real-time traffic data software in their vehicles, made a meaningful revenue contribution in the third quarter. On the highway ITS front, we continue to exhibit strong performance, as demand for IT products and solutions in the transportation industry remains robust."

    Business Outlook

    China TransInfo has successfully developed a first-generation commercial vehicle monitoring and control platform for the Ministry of Transport. To date, the Company has recorded more than one million vehicles registered on the platform and recorded 150,000 active users. The Company expects both the number of registered vehicles and the number of active users to grow substantially going forward.

    Mr. Xia continued, "At the end of the third quarter, our sales backlog was approximately $175 million, compared to $189 million at the end of the second quarter of 2011. We signed roughly $40.2 million in contracts during the third quarter. For the full 2011 business year, we expect revenues in the range of $145 million to $148 million and adjusted net income, which excludes non-cash stock based compensation expense and amortization expense of intangibles from acquisitions, within the range of $15 to $16 million. This reduced revenue and adjusted net income guidance is primarily attributable to lower revenue expected from our commercial vehicle location based services ("LBS") business, due to a well-planned shift in our strategy for the rollout in each province, which involves consolidation of many local platform operators. During this period, we are not charging a fee for new registrations to our platform. We are encouraged by recent government initiatives as well as active participation by commercial vehicle manufacturers and local service providers in the commercial LBS market and expect to monetize the business in the future."

    Mr. Xia concluded, "We remain optimistic about our business over the long term, although we recently have begun to see higher project execution and staffing costs, which have reduced margins. We plan to actively monitor and control costs, and at the same time, we will maintain our R&D efforts to produce premium, reliable and value-added products and solutions that will strengthen our competitive position in the market."

    Second-Quarter 2011 Highlights:

    • Gross profit increased 10.4% year-over-year to $10.6 million 
    • Net income was $2.8 million, or $0.11 per diluted share
    • Adjusted net income was $3.1 million, or $0.12 vs $0.16 in 2010
    • The Group Company's subsidiary, Beijing Zhangcheng Science and Technology Co., Ltd. is working with Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. on a New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) project valued at JPY 340.9 million, or approximately $4.1 million.
    • Awarded an RMB 20 million (approximately $3.0 million) contract to design and construct an Integrated Transportation Command & Control Center System (Phase I) (the "System") in Shenzhen.
    • Entered into a framework agreement to acquire 48,900 square meters of land located at Zhongguancun Innovation Park for the construction of office buildings for the Company and its subsidiaries, in exchange for an aggregate RMB 117,360,000 (approximately $17,984,553).
    • Chairman and CEO Mr. Shudong Xia announced plans to purchase up to another $3 million of the Company's common stock over a 12-month period.
    "We are delighted to report another strong quarter for our business," commented Mr. Xia. "We continued to experience strong demand for our entire line of highway and urban transportation information system products and services during the second quarter of 2011, which resulted in sustained growth in our revenues. Notably, our Electronic Toll Collection ("ETC") segment has shown great momentum in the first half of 2011. We secured over RMB 10 million of contracts in Shandong, Yunnan and Sichuan provinces in the second quarter, which is a strong validation of our product performance and technology leadership. In China's Twelfth Five-Year Plan, the Ministry of Transport of China requires the ETC system to cover 60% of the expressways in China by 2015, which represents over 6,000 ETC lanes and a capacity of over 5 million vehicles. The Plan provides tremendous opportunities for us to generate revenue from an increasing number of ETC applications."

    Mr. Xia commented, "At the end of the second quarter, our sales backlog was approximately $189 million, compared to $183 million at the end of the first quarter of 2011. We signed roughly $43.4 million in contracts during the second quarter, benefiting from increased synergies with UNISITS. In 2011, we continue to expect revenue of $151 million to $159 million. However, we now expect adjusted net income, which excludes non-cash stock based compensation expense and amortization expense of intangibles from acquisitions, of $18 million to $21 million, which is lower than our previous forecast of $20 million to $24 million. This reduced adjusted net income guidance is primarily attributable to a shift in our strategy for the rollout of the commercial vehicle LBS business. Rather than seeking immediate revenue and profitability, we have elected to offer a low or no-cost grace period for new vehicles registered on our commercial vehicle service platform in order to address the national commercial vehicle LBS market in a more consumer-friendly manner, without imposing initial additional fees on users. Although this strategy will reduce our profitability in the near term, we expect it to maximize the opportunity to increase our user base, and therefore make an even-greater contribution to the bottom line in the longer term."

    Mr. Xia concluded, "We remain optimistic about our business throughout the rest of 2011. Alongside our strong market position in the China ITS industry, we are working to add services consistent with our business model. At the same time, we are committed to our longer-term strategy of expanding our presence in the commercial and consumer segments in order to produce a more balanced and scalable business portfolio."

    On June 30, 2011, Division Four of BDO China Li Xin Da Hua CPA Co., Ltd. (“BDO Li Xin”), the independent registered public accounting firm of China TransInfo Technology Corp. (the “Company”), joined BDO China Shu Lun Pan Certified Public Accountants LLP (“BDO Shu Lun Pan”), another BDO International Member Firm headquartered in Shanghai as employees of BDO Shu Lun Pan. Division Four of BDO Li Xin provided auditing and other professional services to the Company after BDO Li Xin was appointed as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm in 2009. Accordingly, and solely as a result of this, effective June 30, 2011, the Company dismissed BDO Li Xin as the independent registered public accounting firm of the Company and appointed BDO Shu Lun Pan as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm. This change in the Company independent registered public accounting firm was approved by the Company’s Audit Committee on June 30, 2011.

    BDO Li Xin’s reports on the Company’s financial statements as of and for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 did not contain an adverse opinion or disclaimer of opinion and were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles.

    During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 and during the subsequent interim period through June 30, 2011, there were (1) no disagreements with BDO Li Xin on any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedures, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of BDO Li Xin, would have caused BDO Li Xin to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreements in connection with its reports, and (2) no events of the type listed in paragraphs (A) through (D) of Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

    During the Company’s two most recent fiscal years ended December 31, 2010 and 2009 and through the subsequent interim period to June 30, 2011, the Company did not consult BDO Shu Lun Pan with respect to (a) the application of accounting principles to a specified transaction, either completed or proposed; or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s consolidated financial statements, and neither a written report was provided to the Company or oral advice was provided that BDO Shu Lun Pan concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to the accounting, auditing or financial reporting issue; or (b) any matter that was the subject of either a disagreement as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K or a reportable event as described in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

    The Company provided BDO Li Xin with a copy of this disclosure on June 30, 2011, providing BDO Li Xin with the opportunity to furnish the Company with a letter addressed to the Securities and Exchange Commission containing any new information, clarification of the Company's expression of its views, or the respect in which BDO Li Xin does not agree with the statements contained herein. A letter from BDO Li Xin dated July 7, 2011 is attached as Exhibit 16.1 to this current report.

    First Quarter Results:

    • Revenue increased 46.7% year-over-year to $36.5 million
    • Gross profit increased 21.8% year-over-year to $10.4 million
    • Operating income increased 11.1% year-over-year to $4.1 million
    • Net income increased 68.7% year-over-year to $3.0 million
    • Earnings per share increased 54.2% to $0.12
    • Adjusted net income, which excludes non-cash stock based compensation expense of $0.3 million and amortization expense of intangibles from acquisitions of $0.05 million, increased 49.5% year-over-year to $3.3 million, or $0.13 per diluted share*

    "We are pleased with our first quarter results as we achieved strong increases in revenue, net income and earnings per share," commented by Mr. Shudong Xia, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "We continue to see very positive market trends in our industry as the government sector in China moves forward with its plans to build more roads and increase intelligent transportation system spending to improve transportation efficiency.  At this stage of the market's development, we believe it is strategically important for us to focus on maximizing market share and consolidating our leadership position in the industry.  As a result, and as is reflected in our first quarter financial results, in many cases we have pursued new contracts aggressively even if it meant a lower margin contribution.  As the ITS industry evolves and matures, we believe that there will be substantial new businesses opportunities addressing users of the ITS infrastructure. The commercial vehicle LBS business is a good example: an increasing portion of the new businesses will be represented by the companies with dominant positions in industry. "  

    Mr. Xia commented, "At the end of the first quarter, our sales backlog was $183 million compared to $212 million at the year end of 2010. The first quarter is normally our slowest season as the Chinese New Year and other government conferences delay new bidding processes for ITS projects.   It is also typically a negative cash flow quarter, since we increase spending on project bids, fees and other related expenses, whereas receivables collection is normally more active in the latter part of the year.  Following the seasonal pattern of our business, as the year progresses we expect our cash flow to turn positive and our contract awards to pick up.  For fiscal 2011, we continue to expect revenue of between $151 million and $159 million and adjusted net income of between $20 million and $24 million.  Adjusted net income excludes non-cash stock based compensation expense and amortization expense of intangibles from acquisitions."

    • Gross profit increased 37.4% year-over-year to $13.8 million
    • Operating income increased 27.7% year-over-year to $6.6 million
    • Net income increased 23.1% year-over-year to $5.8 million, or $0.23 per diluted share
    • Adjusted net income, which excludes non-cash stock based compensation expense of $(0.1) million and amortization expense of intangibles from acquisitions of $0.05 million, increased 12.9% year-over-year to $5.8 million, or $0.23 per diluted share

    "Our strong increase in sales in 2010 underscores the growing recognition of our brand name and technology in China as well as our successful integration of UNISITS," commented by Mr. Shudong Xia, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "During 2010, we have introduced several new products and solutions to the market and we were able to secure over 180 new contract wins from both new and existing clients.  We continue to successfully market and sell our products and services to the highway and urban intelligent transportation system markets within the public sector in China and our total backlog as of year-end 2010 reached $212 million, an increase of 202.9% from year-end 2009 and 92.7% from the end of the third quarter of 2009.  In addition to continuing to penetrate our existing markets, we believe that we can leverage on our extensive experience and capabilities in ITS markets to widen our scope of products and services to include commercial and consumer application services."

    China TransInfo's sales backlog increased 92.7% to $ 212 million as of December 31, 2010, from $110 million as of September 30, 2010. The Company expects sustainable gross margins in the ITS business. Over time, the Company expects to see a gradual improvement in its gross margin performance driven by extension of its product lines into the recurring revenue service markets. For fiscal 2011, China TransInfo expects revenue of between $151 million and $159 million and non-GAAP net income of between $20 million and $24 million. Non-GAAP net income excludes non-cash stock based compensation expense and amortization expense of intangibles from acquisitions.

    Mr. Xia concluded, "Based on our successful track record and reputation, we believe there are significant opportunities to grow revenue from our existing clients by winning follow-on contracts for subsequent phases of project implementation, and by capitalizing on our first mover advantage and the higher cost for customers to switch to other vendors.  We expect to provide additional value-added services and add-ins to our current platform through continuous research and development, enhancement of our product and service offerings and maintenance of our technological leadership position in our core areas of focus.  Our goal is to become the largest provider of intelligent transportation system products and related comprehensive technology solutions in China, as well as a major operator and provider of value-added intelligent transportation systems and location-based services to commercial clients and consumers in China."

    CTFO to benefit from new government initiatives:

    "On December 23, 2010, the Beijing government unveiled new measures to ease the city's increasingly severe traffic congestion. According to the new regulations, Beijing will strengthen the role of traffic information and services to counter traffic congestion and smooth traffic flow. The Commercial Operation Center is expected to help alleviate the city's mounting urban transportation issues and foster the development of the market for consumer-oriented traffic information services."

    China TransInfo Technology Corp. today announced that the Group Company's subsidiary, Beijing Zhangcheng Science and Technology Co., Ltd. ("Beijing Zhangcheng"), has signed a contract with the Beijing Transportation Information Center to develop a commercial operation center to provide dynamic traffic-information services to drivers in Beijing. The contract is valued at RMB 6.2 million (approximately $0.9 million) and will be classified within the Company's traffic information service business.

    According to the contract, the Commercial Operation Center will include: the traffic information-service distribution platform, a customized commuting-service demonstration system, and the launch of 500 interactive dynamic navigation terminals, which are expected to be completed by the end of 2011. The contract also includes the provision of two-years of traffic-information service via the 500 terminals starting in 2011. After two years' time, Beijing Zhangcheng will continue to provide traffic-information services at market price.

    "We're very delighted to participate in the construction of the Commercial Operation Center, especially to provide terminal-based traffic information services," said Mr. Shudong Xia, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of China TransInfo. "Our selection is a strong validation of our technology and service capabilities. The government's increased investment in traffic information services will continue to support the development of our industry."

    "Since Beijing Zhangcheng's related platform, system and terminals have almost been finalized and meet the requirements of the Commercial Operation Center, we estimate that this contract can achieve 80% gross margins. In addition, the launch of 500 terminals represents the beginning of our offering paid traffic-information services in the Beijing market. The 500 interactive navigation terminals will also comprise a data source, which we will use to further improve the quality of our traffic-information service."

    Third Quarter 2010 Highlights

    • Revenue increased 82.8% year-over-year to $35.0 million
    • Gross profit increased 43.7% year-over-year to$10.6 million
    • Operating income increased 20.9% year-over-year to $5.1 million
    • Net income increased 6.9% year-over-year to$4.3 million, or $0.17 per diluted share
    • Adjusted net income, which excludes non-cash stock based compensation expense of $416,278and amortization expense of intangibles from acquisitions of $47,482, increased 16.4% year-over-year to $4.7 million, or $0.19 per diluted share vs. $0.18.
    • The Company was awarded electronic toll collection ("ETC") contracts totaling RMB 44.6 million (approximately $6.7 million) in Shanxi Province, Shandong Province and Sichuan Province

    "We continued to experience strong demand for our solutions and services during the third quarter, which resulted in continued growth in our revenues," commented by Mr. Shudong Xia, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "The transportation information industry in China is growing rapidly due to increased demand from both government and the public for advanced transportation information solutions and services to support more effective and efficient transportation networks in China.  China TransInfo is uniquely positioned to take advantage of the many opportunities in this market.  Currently, all of our revenues fall under our government solutions business, whose revenue model is project-based.  We expect continued strong growth in our existing government solutions business, but also in our services business, which we expect to begin contributing to our revenues by the end of 2010.  

    "Within our services business, we are particularly excited about our fleet management business, which targets a vast potential market opportunity of over 10 million commercial vehicles nationally.  As we previously announced, China TransInfo received authorization from the PRC Ministry of Transportation to construct a national fleet management service system and was awarded the position of sole service provider of this national system. This authorization includes constructing the provincial fleet management service system and providing fleet management services in the following 12 provinces and municipalities: Beijing, Tianjin, Hebei, Henan, Hunan, Guizhou, Hainan, Guangxi, Qinghai, Shaanxi, Gansu and Xinjiang.  Other services businesses that we expect to contribute to our revenues include our consumer service business, where we look forward to providing dynamic traffic information services and other value-added services to vehicles and drivers in China through in-car terminals and/or smart phones. We believe the addition of our services business to our existing project-based government solutions business will improve the profitability and predictability of our future financial performance, because our services business is higher margin and has a recurring revenue business model."  

    Business Outlook

    For fiscal 2010, China TransInfo continues to expect revenues of approximately $120 million. However, the Company is lowering its fiscal 2010 adjusted net income forecast from approximately $18 million to approximately $16.5 million.

    Mr. Xia added, "We are lowering our adjusted net income guidance to reflect our slower than expected improvement in gross margin in our existing business and the anticipated increase in expenses related to our services business as it enters its set-up and expansion phase. The sequential decline in our gross margin was primarily due to unexpected cost increases related to some of our projects during the quarter.  We are seeing increased inflationary pressures in China.  Our project execution and staffing costs have increased, while our existing project contracts are fixed in price.  We expect to price our future projects to reflect the increasing costs of doing business in our market and control our project execution costs accordingly.  We expect sustainable gross margins in our UNISITS business of between 20% and 25% and in our non-UNISITS government solutions business of approximately 45%.  Over time, we expect to see a gradual improvement in our gross margin performance driven by focusing on higher margin projects and solutions in our UNISITS business, such as ETC, and by the expected growth in our higher margin recurring revenue service businesses.      

    "We also expect to continue to leverage UNISITS' technology and distribution channels to develop synergies with our other businesses.  For example, our ETC business has benefited from UNISITS' strong position in the highway market.  Even though our ETC business is still in the pilot project stage and accounts for a very small percentage of our current revenues, we see significant upside potential in this business.  Our ETC business is growing and is expected to generate a very healthy 50% gross margin.  As we have previously announced, we recently won ETC contracts totaling RMB 44.6 million (approximately $6.7 million).  Of this amount, RMB 12 million is expected to be recognized this year, with the remaining RMB 32.6 million expected to be recognized in 2011 and 2012."  

    "We are also pleased to announce that our total sales backlog increased 29.4% to $110 million by the end of the third quarter from $85 million by the end of the second quarter.  Our UNISITS backlog increased 40% to $70 million from $50 million and our non-UNISITS backlog increased 14.3% to $40 million from $35 million.  We expect to recognize revenues from our UNISITS backlog over the next two years and from our non-UNISITS backlog over the next six months.  Overall, we are very confident in our business and look forward to continued growth in our government solutions projects and the development of our recurring revenue services business in the fourth quarter and beyond."

    Second Quarter 2010 Results:

    • Revenue increased 151.1% to $24.0 million from $9.6 millionin the comparable period of 2009.
    • Net income attributable to the Company increased 28.9% to $3.6 million, or $0.14 per diluted share, as compared to $2.8 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the same period of 2009. Adjusted net income attributable to the Company.
    • Excluding non-cash stock based compensation expense and amortization expense of intangibles from acquisitions, increased 41.9% to $4.1 million, or $0.16 per diluted share, as compared to $2.9 million, or $0.13 per diluted share, in the comparable period of 2009. Weighted average diluted shares outstanding increased to 25.1 million shares, from 22.4 million shares in the second quarter of 2009.

    "There are vast business opportunities available in China's transportation information industry, due in large part to the government's emphasis on leveraging technology to manage the country's overwhelming traffic flow. The acquisition of UNISITS further strengthens our leading position in the Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) market and we look forward to increasing penetration in the highway segment while consolidating our foothold in the urban transportation market," commented Mr. Xia. "Our new fleet management business represents a largely untapped commercial market that enjoys strong support from the government. We believe we are well positioned to emerge as a major player in this evolving market."

    For fiscal 2010, the Company reaffirms its previous guidance for revenue of approximately $120 million and adjusted net income of approximately $18 million.

     Historically, the Company sees lower sales during the first half than the second half of the year due to governmental seasonal budgeting activities.

    Research

    Added to the GeoBargain list on August 12, 2009 @ $5.67

    Catalyst: Strong guidance; Low valuation.

    Peak performance: Reached a high of $12.90 on Oct. 12, 2009

    Current Price: $6.84

    Current road block: Issued net income guidance, but no EPS guidance; EPS is forecast to grow less than 30% for the 2010 June quarter; Cash Flow from operation for the 2010 first quarter was negative $10.2 million; Increase in account receivables.

    From an EPS point of view, except for the 2010 & 2011 June quarters, CTFO is forecast to meet our 30.0% minimum growth requirement.

    • June 2010 quarterly EPS estimate: $0.12 vs. $0.13 in 2009
    • June 2011 quarterly EPS estimate: $0.11 vs. $0.12 in 2010 estimate.

    The pressing issues are the company’s negative cash flow and increasing accounts receivable positions.

    "Net cash used in operating activities was approximately $10.20 million for the three-month period ended March 31, 2010, while for the same period of 2009, we had approximately $3.96 million net cash used in operating activities. The increase of the cash used in operating activities was mainly attributable to the increase of accounts receivable, which was mainly due to the increase in sales and slow seasonal collections during the first quarter of 2010. We also experienced the increase in other receivable, which consists mainly of contract bidding and performance bonds that we put into escrow accounts set up by our customers for contract bidding and performance purposes. Such increases were in correlation to the increase of our sales and also negatively impacted our cash from operations. We also had the decrease in accounts payable and billings in excess of costs and estimated earnings on uncompleted contracts, which also negatively impacted the cash flow from operations for the three months ended March 31, 2010 compared to the same period of 2009."

    We are not sure how much of an issue is created by the negative cash flow position. In 2009, the company ended up with positive $8.8 million operating cash flow, after being negative $2.4 million for the first nine months.

    The real issue is one of timing: Will the company�s cash flow inconsistencies enable it to sustain growth initiatives during times of cash flow pressure and necessitate a capital raise? (note: as of the 2010 first quarter the company cash stood at $25.8 million, which could help mitigate cashflow concerns.)

    According to the company liquidity is sufficient:

    "We believe that our current cash and cash equivalents and anticipated cash flow from operations will be sufficient to meet our anticipated cash needs, including our cash needs for working capital and capital expenditures for at least the next 12 months. We may, however, require additional cash due to changing business conditions or other future developments, including any investments or acquisitions we may decide to pursue."

    The company also recently secured a loan agreement:

    "On June 21, 2010, Beijing PKU Chinafront High Technology Co., ("Beijing PKU") a variable interest entity of China TransInfo Technology Corp. entered into a short-term loan agreement with Bank of Beijing, Zhongguancun Branch ("Bank of Beijing"), pursuant to which Bank of Beijing has agreed to loan to the Beijing PKU RMB 30,000,000 (approximately $4,400,000) as working capital."

    Still, investors must realize that the cash flow and accounts receivable situation may limit P/E expansion.

    Our intent over the short-term is to build a check list to assess the risk position of firms in the ChinaHybrid space. For the time being this will consist of the following: (this list is likely to grow substantially)

    -Is the company's auditor ranked in the top 100?
    -Is the auditor located in the USA? If located in China the PCAOB (Public Company Oversight Board) may be denied access to investigate the practices of the auditing firm. Short sellers have been using this information as a tool to validate their opinions.
    -Are the company's internal controls satisfactory?
    -Are their any outstanding legal issues?
    -Do the company's top ten customers represent less than 10% of revenues?
    - Operating cash flow divided by current liabilities is greater than one. The higher the better.
    - Cash divided by current liabilities. This is an the most conservative liquidity ratio. The higher the better
    - Is the company buying back stock?
    - Chinese filings match respective SEC filings.(In process)

    Criteria Meets Criteria Notes
    Top Ten Auditor Yes BDO China
    Auditor Located USA No Shenzhe, China
    Satisfactory Internal Controls Yes Based on that evaluation, Mr. Shudong Xia and Mr. Zhihai Mao concluded that as of March 31, 2010, and as of the date that the evaluation of the effectiveness of our disclosure controls and procedures was completed, our disclosure controls and procedures were effective at the reasonable assurance level.
    No Legal issues Yes None Found
    Customer Concentration No The Company had two and three major customers that individually represented 10% or more of the Company’s total net sales during the three months ended March 31, 2010 and 2009, respectively
    Cash Flow Ratio is Greater than 1 No Negative
    Cash Ratio is Greater than
    1
    No 0.57
    Buying Back Stock/Insider Buying No n/a

    GeoTeam Note:

    Short term and risk adverse investors should be aware of the quality issues currently present in the ChinaHybrid Space, questioning the validity of what seem like solid fundamental stories. It is beginning to get ugly so be cautious and understand that more pain may have to be endured, as ChinaHybrids are easy prey for short investors. The broad stereotype that is being applied to these stocks appears unfair, but we can’t ignore the psychological impact this can have on investors’ portfolio decisions. If history is our guide, fear will eventually create an immense opportunity to invest in the companies that prove they can meet quality litmus tests and enact shareholder friendly moves. Credibility can also be restored if independent legal/SEC opinions validate accounting practices currently in question.

    We have yet to verify if the Chinese filings for ChinaHybrid stocks we monitor match respective SEC filings. We are in the process of completing this task.  Conservative investors may want to limit exposure or buy put options on stocks that have this availability as insurance against long positions, until we publish our findings.  Odds are we will identify some promising companies that will fail this litmus test.

    "During the first quarter of 2010, we continued to experience strong demand for our innovative solutions for traffic management," commented Mr. Shudong Xia, Chief Executive Officer of China TransInfo. "As a result, revenue more than tripled and adjusted net income increased almost 50% year over year. Our $10 million equity financing from SAIF Partners enabled us to acquire the majority stake in UNISITS. This is a significant acquisition for us, which solidifies our strategic commitment to gain market share in the expressway market and expand our geographic penetration."

    "We continue to be optimistic about our business opportunities in China's transportation information industry, where we clearly benefit from our first mover advantage in an industry with few major players," commented Mr. Xia. "With the debut of the IC System, the launch of our Fleet Management Service business, and our participation in the National Highway Information Grid, we have leveraged major synergies from our acquisition of UNISITS. We believe the Company will sustain its strong growth through recurring revenue streams from diverse products and services."

    For fiscal 2010, the Company reaffirms its previous guidance for:

    • Revenue of approximately $120 million
    • Adjusted net income of approximately $18 million.

    For the fiscal year ending December 31, 2008, China TransInfo reaffirms its guidance of approximately $30.0 million in revenues and approximately $11.0 million in net income.

     'While most of the major global economies have suffered from significant downturns recently, however, according to the latest government estimates, China will maintain a positive rate of growth. Along with its continuing economic expansion, especially the recently announced $586 billion (RMB 4 trillion) economic stimulus plan, China will emphasize the development of its infrastructure on a nationwide basis. The country's rapid urbanization has been accompanied by dramatic increases in private car ownership, necessitating the development of more advanced GIS-based transportation solutions. Our advanced GIS technologies, strong links to government agencies, and our recent $15 million financing will allow China TransInfo to more effectively take advantage of all potential opportunities in this area,' stated Mr. Shudong Xia, the Company's CEO. 'We are particularly excited about the progress of our taxi media platform in Urumqi and Huhhot. In addition, our recent acquisitions of Dajian Zhitong and Shanghai Yootu will furnish us with new tools to further enhance our taxi media and real time transportation business.'
