The Company won contracts from clients in 14 provinces and provincial cities during the third quarter of 2009, increasing its market presence from 28 to 32 provinces and provincial cities throughout China. Some important contracts secured in the third quarter included:
-- $11 million contract for Phase I of the Shenzhen Emergency Command Digital Trunking Mobile Communications System Project; -- $1.3 million contract for Phase II of the Zhuhai City Police-use GIS Project; -- $1.2 million contract for Shenzhen City Planning Bureau Digital Land Resource Management System.
Of this quarter's contracts, 55% were for the Company's Digital Information Security Technology ("DIST") products, 30% were for its Geographic Information Systems ("GIS") products and 15% related to its Digital Hospital Information Systems ("DHIS") products. Management expects that the majority of these contracts will be recognized as revenue in 2009.
Mr. Jiang Huai Lin, Chairman and CEO of the Company, commented, "We are very excited about our record high contract wins in the third quarter. The increased bidding and spending activities from our local governmental customers throughout this quarter indicate that the economic recovery has re-enabled many previously delayed government projects to move forward and created strong, positive momentum for our businesses. This record high value of contract wins also demonstrates further customer recognition of the quality of our industry-leading solutions in our core business segments: DIST, GIS and DHIS, all of which have experienced strong growth this quarter. We believe that the large contract win from Shenzhen Public Security Bureau, in particular, highlights an attractive potential market in applying our PGIS systems to telecommunication networks and will provide us with the competitive edge to win bids on similar projects in other provinces throughout China."
