Third Quarter 2011 Highlights
Mr. Libo Yang, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, "We are very pleased that Kanghui once again exceeded expectations and delivered another strong quarterly financial performance in the third quarter of 2011. We continued to benefit from strong growth in our domestic sales, as we further enhanced our brand recognition and market share in China. We believe our new manufacturing facilities, new product introductions and the smooth integration of our recent acquisitions have laid a strong foundation for our future growth. In short, the third quarter of 2011 was another successful milestone that supported our growth strategy.
Ms. Sarah Wang, Chief Financial Officer of Kanghui, commented, "Our strong third quarter performance demonstrates the resiliency of Kanghui's balanced and diversified revenue model, pursuant to which the decrease in our international sales were fully covered by our strong growth in domestic and OEM sales.

Considering the strong demand for our products and our increasing market share, we feel confident about our future prospects for the remainder of 2011 and beyond."
