According to the National Medicine Administration Law of the People's Republic of China, all new pharmaceutical manufacturing facilities must pass an examination to obtain their GMP Certificates.

"This certification is the final step to commencing production at our new facility and effectively tripling the capacity of our solid dosage medicines, such as Azithromycin Dispersible Tablets, Mycophenolate Mofetil Capsules, Dantong Capsules and other recently approved medicines in our portfolio. This will enable us to meet our projected 40% revenue growth for fiscal 2010 while providing the capacity to accommodate up to $100 million in annual revenues as we look toward the future."
