See "Non-GAAP Measure Disclosures" below, where the impact of certain items on reported results ishe 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 they 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.

discussed.

"FY2007 was a landmark year for China Medical Technologies to become an advanced IVD company," commented Mr. Xiaodong Wu, Chairman and CEO of the Company. "About 60% of our revenues were generated from both ECLIA and FISH diagnostic businesses. We expect a higher percentage of our revenues to be generated from these businesses in FY2008 as our recurring reagent sales continue to grow rapidly. We successfully launched our FISH business in FY2007 and have established a direct sales network of selling our FISH reagents to more than 200 large hospitals in China. We will expand the direct sales network to cover more than 500 large hospitals in China by the end of FY2008. We believe that this network will help the Company maintain a close relationship with a large group of high end hospital consumers in China and benefit the Company by selling all its products to these hospitals in the long term."

"We faced challenges upon the launch of our new diagnostic FISH business and transportation interruption in southern China by the heavy snow storm during FY2007. We also faced several interest rate reductions which decreased our interest income as well as the delay in the assessment of hi-tech enterprise designation for Chinese companies by the PRC government which increased our income tax expense," commented Mr. Sam Tsang, CFO of the Company. "Despite these challenges, we managed to exceed our targeted revenues and adjusted net income which we revised upward in November 2007. These were the results of our successful execution of our strategies for FISH business and timely reaction to business interruption caused by natural disaster. Again, we challenge ourselves by setting new targeted revenues and adjusted net income for FY2008 which are detailed under "Outlook for FY2008" below. Besides, I have tried to compare our results and new targets to Thomson First Call mean which is commonly referred to by our shareholders and investors but found that there are only two sell-side analysts covering the Company. I believe it is not in the best interest of our shareholders and potential investors and have included the task of increasing sell-side analyst coverage to my task list for FY2008."

4Q FY2007 Financial Results

The Company reported revenues of RMB284.2 million (US$40.5 million) for 4Q FY2007, representing a 74.3% 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 revenues for 4Q FY2007 were RMB112.2 million (US$16.0 million), representing a 70.3% increase from the corresponding period of FY2006. The strong year-over-year growth in the ECLIA system revenues reflected the increasing utilization of ECLIA equipment by hospitals and the introduction of new reagents, both of which drove increasing demand for reagent kits.

FISH system revenues for 4Q FY2007 were RMB68.8 million (US$9.8 million). We launched our FISH systems in 1Q FY2007.

HIFU tumor therapy system revenues for 4Q FY2007 were RMB103.2 million (US$14.7 million), representing a 6.1% increase from the corresponding period of FY2006. The year-over-year growth in this sector was driven primarily by increases in unit sales.

Gross margin decreased to 64.2% for 4Q FY2007 as compared to 73.2% for the corresponding period of FY2006. The decrease in gross margin was mainly due to the amortization of FISH intangible assets of RMB17.5 million (US$2.5 million) which resulted in a 6.2% decrease in gross margin. In addition, FISH equipment sales generated lower gross margin. However, FISH reagent sales generate recurring revenue and higher gross margin for the Company. The rapid growth in FISH reagent sales will improve the gross margin in the future.

Research and development expenses were RMB11.4 million (US$1.6 million) for 4Q FY2007, representing a 43.5% year-over-year increase. The increase was primarily due to the development of new ECLIA and FISH reagents.

Sales and marketing expenses were RMB8.2 million (US$1.2 million) for 4Q FY2007, representing a 52.7% year-over-year increase. The increase was primarily due to the establishment and expansion of direct sales force and promotional activities for FISH systems.

General and administrative expenses were RMB16.3 million (US$2.3 million) for 4Q FY2007, representing a 10.5% year-over-year decrease. The decrease was primarily due to the decrease in cash bonus for senior management.

Interest income was RMB5.0 million (US$0.7 million) for 4Q FY2007, representing a 66.8% decrease from the corresponding period of FY2006. The decrease was primarily due to lower cash balance as a result of payments made for the FISH and other acquisitions and a decrease in the interest rate for US dollar bank deposits.

Interest expense of convertible notes was RMB9.4 million (US$1.3 million) for 4Q FY2007. The notes bear interest at 3.5% per annum.

Interest expense of amortization of convertible notes issuance cost was RMB1.9 million (US$0.3 million) for 4Q FY2007.

Other interest expense of RMB1.3 million (US$0.2 million) for 4Q FY2007 was primarily due to the present value discounting of long term other payable of US$10 million for the final payment of FISH acquisition due in March 2009.

Income tax expense was RMB33.7 million (US$4.8 million) for 4Q FY2007. The effective tax rate for 4Q FY2007 was 24.3% primarily due to the increase in income tax rate from 10% to the transitional rate of 18% in connection with the New Law effective in January 2008 as well as certain non-deductible expenses for income tax.

The China Unified Corporate Income Tax Law (the "New Law") became effective on January 1, 2008. The New Law established a single unified 25% income tax rate for most companies with some preferential income tax rates including 15% income tax rate to be applicable to qualified hi-tech enterprises. The related detailed implementation rules and regulations on the definition of various terms and the interpretation and application of the provisions of the New Law were promulgated by the State Council in December 2007 and April 2008. However, the application for hi-tech enterprise under the New Law is pending for the implementation by the relevant government authorities. Before the approval of hi-tech enterprise, the Company is required to pay income tax in accordance with the transitional income tax arrangement where the income tax rate is 18% in 2008 and 20% in 2009. The Company believes that it meets the criteria of hi-tech enterprise under the New Law and is ready to make the application when the government authorities commence the process.

Net income was RMB105.2 million (US$15.0 million) for 4Q FY2007, representing a 25.7% increase from the corresponding period of FY2006.

Adjusted net income excluding stock compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangible assets (non-GAAP) was RMB133.6 million (US$19.1 million) for 4Q FY2007, representing a 45.5% increase from the corresponding period of FY2006. The lower growth rate compared to net revenues was primarily due to convertible note expenses of RMB11.3 million (US$1.6 million), a decrease in interest income and an increase in effective income tax rate.

Stock compensation expense for 4Q FY2007 was RMB4.7 million (US$0.7 million), which was allocated to research and development expenses (RMB1.7 million) and general and administrative expenses (RMB3.0 million), respectively.

Amortization of acquired intangible assets for 4Q FY2007 was RMB23.7 million (US$3.4 million), which was allocated to cost of revenues.

As of March 31, 2008, the Company's cash balance was RMB682.7 million (US$97.4 million).

As of March 31, 2008, the Company's accounts receivable was RMB289.8 million (US$41.3 million), representing an increase of 14.4% from the balance at December 31, 2007. Accounts receivable turnover days were 114 days in this quarter compared to 115 days in previous quarter.

FY2007 Financial Results

Revenues were RMB915.7 million (US$130.6 million) for FY2007, representing a 67.4% year-over-year increase. The targeted revenues for FY2007 ranged from RMB860 million to RMB885 million which were revised upward in November 2007.

ECLIA system revenues for FY2007 were RMB380.5 million (US$54.3 million), representing a 76.5% year-over-year increase. FISH system revenues for FY2007 were RMB166.9 million (US$23.8 million) after the launch of our FISH systems in 1Q FY2007. HIFU tumor therapy system revenues for FY2007 were RMB368.3 million (US$52.5 million), representing a 11.1% year-over-year increase.

Gross margin decreased to 62.2% for FY2007 as compared to 72.3% for FY2006 primarily due to similar reasons for 4Q FY2007. During FY2007, quarterly gross margin showed improvement in 3Q FY2007 and 4Q FY2007 which were 63.2% and 64.2% respectively primarily due to increasing sales of FISH reagents.

Research and development expenses were RMB40.9 million (US$5.8 million) for FY2007, representing a 29.9% year-over-year increase. The increase was primarily due to the development of new ECLIA and FISH reagents.

Sales and marketing expenses were RMB29.1 million (US$4.2 million) for FY2007, representing a 59.3% year-over-year increase. This increase was primarily due to the establishment and expansion of direct sales force for FISH systems and promotional activities for both ECLIA and FISH systems.

General and administrative expenses were RMB75.4 million (US$10.8 million) for FY2007, representing a 36.2% year-over-year increase primarily due to an increase in headcount to meet the expansion of the Company's operations and stock compensation expense arising from the grant of restricted stock and stock options in June 2007.

Other income was RMB3.1 million (US$0.4 million) for FY2007, which was primarily due to government grants.

Interest income was RMB28.6 million (US$4.1 million) for FY2007, representing a 31.7% year-over-year decrease. The decrease was primarily due to lower cash balance as a result of payments made for the FISH and other acquisitions and a decrease in interest rate for US dollar bank deposits.

Interest expense of convertible notes was RMB39.1 million (US$5.6 million) for FY2007. The notes bear interest at 3.5% per annum and were issued in November 2006.

Interest expense of amortization of convertible notes issuance cost was RMB7.9 million (US$1.1 million) for FY2007.

Other interest expense of RMB5.2 million (US$0.7 million) for FY2007 was due to the present value discounting of long term other payable of US$10 million for the final payment of FISH acquisition due in March 2009.

Income tax expense was RMB78.2 million (US$11.2 million) for FY2007. The effective tax rate for FY2007 was 19.4% primarily due to the increase in income tax rate from 10% to the transitional rate of 18% in connection with the New Law effective in January 2008 as well as certain non-deductible expenses for income tax.

Net income was RMB325.2 million (US$46.4 million) for FY2007, representing a 12.3% year-over-year increase.

Adjusted net income excluding stock compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangible assets (non-GAAP) was RMB432.1 million (US$61.6 million) for FY2007, representing a 39.4% year-over-year increase. The targeted adjusted net income for FY2007 ranged from RMB410 million to RMB420 million which were revised upward in November 2007.

Stock compensation expense for FY2007 was RMB16.7 million (US$2.4 million), which was allocated to research and development expenses (RMB2.8 million) and general and administrative expenses (RMB13.9 million), respectively. The Company approved the grant of 3,560,000 restricted stock, equivalent to 356,000 ADS to certain directors, officers and employees on June 6, 2008 which was approximately 1.3% of the issued shares. The restricted stock vests over a period of three years.

Amortization of acquired intangible assets for FY2007 was RMB90.2 million (US$12.9 million), which was allocated to cost of revenues.

For the convenience of readers, certain RMB amounts have been translated into U.S. dollars at the rate of RMB7.012 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 Monday, March 31, 2008.

Cash Dividend

The Board of Directors has declared a cash dividend on its ordinary shares of US$0.05 per share, equivalent to US$0.5 per ADS based on the Company's net income for FY2007. The cash dividend will be paid on or around August 28, 2008 to shareholders of record as of July 25, 2008.

Outlook for FY2008

The Company's reagent businesses from both ECLIA and FISH systems will drive the growth of the Company for FY2008 despite the decline in equipment sales of the two systems. The Company has introduced the reagent rental arrangement for our ECLIA system so that qualified hospitals can use the Company's ECLIA equipment free of charge but have to purchase the Company's ECLIA reagents. The Company expects the arrangement to expand the penetration of its ECLIA equipment to more hospitals especially high end and low end hospitals. Regarding FISH system, the Company does not manufacture the microscopes used for observing the results of FISH tests. The Company purchases the microscopes and sells them to hospitals. Recently, the Company has referred the hospitals to purchase the microscopes directly from the manufacturers so that hospitals can reduce the cost of setting up this new diagnostic platform and expedite the commencement of this diagnostic service to patients. As a result, more hospitals will use the Company's FISH reagents faster and drive the growth of the FISH reagent revenue. Both ECLIA and FISH reagent sales are recurring in nature and generate high gross margin for the Company.

The targeted net revenues for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2009 are expected to be between RMB1,190 million (US$169.7 million) and RMB1,230 million (US$175.4 million), representing a year-over-year increase of 30.0% - 34.3%.

The targeted adjusted net income excluding stock compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangible assets (non-GAAP) for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2009 are expected to be between RMB585 million (US$83.4 million) and RMB605 million (US$86.3 million), representing a year-over-year increase of 35.4% - 40.0%.

The targeted adjusted diluted EPS excluding stock compensation expense and amortization of acquired intangible assets (non-GAAP) for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2009 is expected to be between RMB20.10 (US$2.87) and RMB20.73 (US$2.96) assuming a diluted number of ADS of about 31.5 million and excluding interest for convertible notes and amortization of convertible notes issuance cost, representing a year-over-year increase of 30.1% - 34.3%.

The above targets are based on the Company's current views on the operating and marketing 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 t
