SOKO's management reported that its growth quarter to quarter was due to the following factors:

    -- professional services revenue increased as a result of the introduction
       of new services and increase in customer base;
    -- product sales revenue increase was driven by introduction of new
       branded products and higher consumption of products by our customers;
    -- membership fee revenue increase was driven by opening a new fitness
       center Yoga Wave II in Shenyang and membership increases in our
       facilities; and
    -- the decrease in school tuition revenue was as a result of the company's
       reallocation of certain school resources to internal program for
       company employee training.
