Summary of First Quarter Contracts
The Company won contracts from 14 provinces and provincial cities in the first quarter of 2009, bringing the total number of cities in which it has a presence in China to 28. Some of the important contracts secured in the first quarter included:
-- Patented Medical Case Statistics Software selected for an exclusive contract by the Health Department of Guangdong Province, valued at $2.5 million -- Command System and Remote Data Backup System for the Shenzhen General Station of Exit and Entry Frontier Inspection, valued at $3.2 million -- First Responder Coordination Platform for the Shenzhen Transportation Bureau, valued at $0.8 million -- Shenzhen Traffic Police GIS System, valued at $1.7 million -- Police-use GIS for the Public Security Bureau of Dongfang City, Hainan Province, valued at $1.0 million
Of these contracts, 40% were won in the Digital Information Security sector, 46% were won in the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) sector, and 14% were won in the Digital Hospital Information Systems sector. Management expects that a majority of the revenues from these contracts will be realized in 2009. The first quarter of the year historically is seasonally slowest for the Company due to the Chinese New Year holiday. With the rollout of China's stimulus package underway, management expects to secure more contracts in the upcoming quarters.
"We were pleased that our patented Medical Case Statistics Software was selected for an exclusive contract by the Health Department of Guangdong during the quarter," commented Mr. Jiang Huai Lin, CEO of China Information Security. "We believe that the selection of our product is a demonstration of our corporate strength and capabilities, and a reaffirmation of our strategic entrance into the digital hospital sector. We remain confident in achieving our 2009 guidance due to a number of reasons, including the effect of China's infrastructure stimulus plan, ongoing construction for the 2011 26th World University Games in Shenzhen and the positive impact on our revenue and profits due to the recent selection by China's Ministry of Public Security of our PGIS technology for use in standardizing PGIS applications nationally."
