Income Taxes: The income tax provision for the second quarter of fiscal 2009 was $460,000, up from -$223,000 for the same period in fiscal 2008. The increase in tax provision was mainly due to a change in tax rate for the Company's subsidiaries in China as a result of the Chinese income tax reform that came into effect on January 1, 2008, and the write off for over-provision of income taxes in the second fiscal quarter of 2008.
Net income: Net income increased by 188.42% to $1.64 million, or $0.04 per basic and diluted share, compared to net income of $0.57 million, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, for the second quarter of last fiscal year. This increase can be attributed to higher gross margin during the three months ended March 31, 2009 as compared with the same period last year, the decrease in transportation expenses, and improved production management to reduce manufacture cost.
