"With the ramp-up of our new facility this year, we will be able to accept larger purchase orders from major dairy producers and animal feed manufacturers, which remain the most prominent sources of demand for bulk additives," Mr. Song said. "Same-store sales for Shining retail stores that have been in operation at least one year are expected to grow significantly year-over-year, and we hope to continue to expand the number of Shining retail outlets during the year. Although global economic growth remains suppressed, we believe there is pent-up demand for our bulk additive products, which should generate substantial growth in revenues and net income during the 2010 fiscal year."
In April 2009, China-Biotics signed an agreement with Dabeinong Group ("Dabeinong") to supply probiotics as bulk additives for poultry feed products. These bulk additives will be used in several of Dabeinong's products and will help enhance the avian immune system and increase poultry survival and egg production rates in commercially raised poultry.
In June 2009, China-Biotics attended Digestive Disease Week 2009 in Chicago. DDW is the largest and most prestigious meeting in the world for gastrointestinal professionals in the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy and gastrointestinal surgery, attracting approximately 16,000 physicians, researchers and academics from around the world.
Also in June 2009, the Company joined the Russell 3000(R) Index and Russell Global(R) Index, as Russell Investments reconstituted its comprehensive set of U.S. and global equity indices.
