Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary that the Company. The Company has been conducting an internal review with respect to these matters and has observed similar errors at Guangzhou Konzern Medicine Co., Ltd., another wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company in fiscal years 2006 to 2010. In connection with the audits of the Company's financial statements for the fiscal years ended December 31, 2009 and 2008 and the subsequent interim period through August 16, 2011, except the matters mentioned above, there were: (i) no disagreements between the Company and Frazer Frost on any matters of accounting principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which disagreements, if not resolved to the satisfaction of Frazer Frost, would have caused Frazer Frost to make reference to the subject matter of the disagreement in connection with their reports on the Company's financial statements for such years, and (ii) no reportable events within the meaning set forth in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K.

As the Company disclosed previously, its previously issued financial statements contained in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal years 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009, and the Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q for the periods within the fiscal years 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010 should not be relied upon and it expects to restate such previously issued financial statements.
