2Q FY2007 Financial Results

The Company reported net revenues of RMB214.9 million (US$28.7 million) for 2Q FY2007, representing a 63.5% increase from the corresponding period of FY2006.

The Company's revenues are currently generated from three product lines, ECLIA diagnostic systems, FISH diagnostic systems and HIFU tumor therapy systems. ECLIA and FISH system sales include the sales of equipment and reagent kits.

ECLIA system sales for 2Q FY2007 were RMB92.6 million (US$12.4 million), representing an 80.0% increase from the corresponding period of FY2006. The strong year-over-year growth in the ECLIA system sales reflected the increasing utilization of ECLIA analyzers by hospitals and the introduction of new reagents, both of which drove increasing demand for reagent kits.

FISH system sales for 2Q FY2007 were RMB30.8 million (US$4.1 million) after the launch of our FISH systems in June quarter.

HIFU tumor therapy system sales for 2Q FY2007 were RMB91.5 million (US$12.2 million), representing a 14.4% increase from the corresponding period of FY2006. The year-over-year growth in this sector was driven primarily by increases in unit sales and selling price.

Gross margin decreased to 61.5% for 2Q FY2007 as compared to 71.9% for the corresponding period of FY2006. The decrease in gross margin was due to the amortization of FISH intangible assets of RMB18.5 million (US$2.5 million) and FISH equipment sales which generated lower gross margin. Future FISH reagent sales will generate recurring revenue and higher gross margin for the Company. Excluding the impact of FISH amortization, gross margin would be 70.1%.

Research and development expenses were RMB8.1 million (US$1.1 million) for 2Q FY2007, representing a 3.4% year-over-year decrease. The slight decrease was primarily due to the completion of pre-clinical trials in the United States. The Company is in the preparation for the clinical trials in the United States and expects to conduct the trials in early 2008.

Sales and marketing expenses were RMB6.6 million (US$0.9 million) for 2Q FY2007, representing a 48.5% year-over-year increase. The increase was primarily due to more participation in exhibitions and more promotional events relating to the FISH business.

General and administrative expenses were RMB20.9 million (US$2.8 million) for 2Q FY2007, representing a 74.0% year-over-year increase. The increase was primarily due to an increase in relevant employees to accommodate the Company's rapid growth and stock compensation expense arising from a grant of restricted stocks and stock options in June 2007.

Interest income was RMB7.8 million (US$1.0 million) for 2Q FY2007, representing a 2.3% decrease from the corresponding period of FY2006.

Interest expense of convertible notes was RMB9.9 million (US$1.3 million) for 2Q FY2007. The notes bear interest at 3.5% per annum.

Other interest expense of RMB1.2 million (US$0.2 million) for 2Q FY2007 was due to notional interest in connection with the present value discounting of long term other payable of US$10 million for the final payment of the FISH acquisition due in February 2009.

Amortization of convertible notes issuance cost of RMB2.0 million (US$0.3 million) for 2Q FY2007 was due to the US$150 million convertible notes issued in November 2006. The issuance cost is amortized over the five year term of the convertible notes.

Income tax expense was RMB13.9 million (US$1.8 million) for 2Q FY2007 and the effective tax rate for 2Q FY2007 was 15.2%. One of the Company's PRC subsidiaries is entitled to an income tax concession at a rate of 10% which will expire in December 2007.

Under the Enterprise Income Tax Law effective January 1, 2008, China will adopt a uniform tax rate of 25% for all enterprises with certain preferential income tax rates including 15% income tax rate to be applicable to qualified hi-tech enterprises. The related detailed implementation rules and regulations (the ''IRRs'') are expected to be promulgated before the end of 2007. The Company currently believes the IRRs to have no impact on its qualification as a hi-tech enterprise, and believes its current tax rate of 15% will continue to apply. In the event the promulgation of the new IRRs results in a change such that the Company will no longer qualify as a hi-tech enterprise, it will be required to pay income tax in accordance with the IRRs starting on January 1, 2008.

Net income was RMB77.4 million (US$10.3 million) for 2Q FY2007, representing an 8.0% increase from the corresponding period of FY2006.

Adjusted net income excluding stock compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangible assets (non-GAAP) was RMB105.1 million (US$14.0 million) for 2Q FY2007, representing a 38.8% increase from the corresponding period of FY2006. The lower growth rate compared to net revenues was primarily due to convertible note expenses of RMB11.9 million (US$1.6 million).

Stock compensation expense for 2Q FY2007 was RMB5.5 million (US$0.7 million) which was allocated to research and development expenses (RMB0.5 million) and general and administrative expenses (RMB5.0 million).

Amortization of acquired intangible assets for 2Q FY2007 was RMB22.2 million (US$3.0 million) which was recorded as cost of revenues.

As of September 30, 2007, the Company's cash balance was RMB994.2 million (US$132.7 million). Net operating cash flow for 2Q FY2007 was RMB108.9 million (US$14.5 million).

As of September 30, 2007, the Company's accounts receivable was RMB227.3 million (US$30.3 million), representing an increase of 5.6% from the balance at June 30, 2007. The accounts receivable turnover days improved to 119 days from previous 129 days.

For the convenience of readers, certain RMB amounts have been translated into U.S. dollars at the rate of RMB7.4928 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate in New York City for cable transfers of RMB per U.S. dollar as certified for customs purposes by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, as of Friday, September 28, 2007.

Outlook for FY2007

The Company has revised the current targets for FY2007 based on better than expected ECLIA reagent business. The revised targeted net revenues for FY2007 range from RMB860 million (US$114.8 million) to RMB885 million (US$118.1 million) from the previous range of RMB830 million to RMB870 million. The revised targeted net revenues represent a year-over-year increase of 57.2% - 61.8%.

The revised targeted adjusted net income excluding stock compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangible assets (non-GAAP) for FY2007 ranges from RMB410 million (US$54.7 million) to RMB420 million (US$56.1 million) from the previous range of RMB390 million to RMB410 million. The revised targeted adjusted net income represents a year-over-year increase of 32.3% - 35.5%.

The revised targeted adjusted diluted earnings per ADS excluding stock compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangible assets (non-GAAP) for FY2007 ranges from RMB14.80 (US$1.98) to RMB15.10 (US$2.02) from the previous range of RMB14.15 to RMB14.80 assuming a diluted number of ADS of 31,000,000 and excluding interest for convertible notes and amortization of convertible notes issuance cost.

These targets are based on the Company's current views on the operating and market conditions which are subject to change.

Non-GAAP Measure Disclosures

To supplement its consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (''GAAP''), the Company uses non-GAAP measures of adjusted net income and adjusted earnings per ADS, which are adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude the impact of stock compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangible assets. Non-GAAP financial measures are used by the Company in their financial and operating decision-making because management believes they reflect the Company's ongoing business in a manner that allows meaningful period-to-period comparison. The Company's management believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating the Company's current operating performance and future prospects in the same manner as management does, if they so choose. The Company's management also believes the non-GAAP financial measures are useful for itself and investors because it makes more meaningful comparisons of the Company's current results of operations to those of prior periods.

The Company's management believes excluding the non-cash stock compensation expense from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for itself and investors as such expense will not result in future cash payment and is otherwise unrelated to the Company's core operating results.

The Company's management believes excluding the non-cash amortization expense of acquired intangible assets resulting from acquisitions from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for itself and investors because such measures enable a more meaningful comparison of the Company's performance between reporting periods. In addition, such amortization will not result in cash settlement in the future.

The presentation of this additional financial information is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. For a reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measure, please see the financial statements included with this press release.
