During the second half of the year, we plan to continue to enhance operational efficiency while strategically investing in network expansion to support profitable growth. We also continue to progress according to our schedule for fulfilling Sarbanes Oxley requirements."

Second Quarter Fiscal 2010 Results
Concord Medical reported total net revenues of RMB99.4 million ($14.7 million) for the second quarter of 2010, representing a 38.3% increase from the corresponding period in 2009, primarily due to patient volume growth from established centers as well as from new centers added through organic development and acquisitions in 2009 and the first half of 2010.
Cost of revenues in the second quarter of 2010 was RMB30.2 million ($4.5 million), a 36.2% increase from the corresponding period in 2009, primarily due to the higher depreciation cost associated with the new equipment purchases in 2009 and the first half of 2010.

Operating expenses, consisting of selling expenses and general and administrative expenses, were RMB22.2 million ($3.3 million) in the second quarter of 2010, compared to RMB7.4 million in the corresponding period in 2009.

As of June 30, 2010, the Company had total fixed assets with a net book value of RMB677.1million ($99.9 million) and cash of RMB863.4 million ($127.3 million). The decline was mainly due to the increased fixed assets balance and prepayment for equipment purchase for our network expansion.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures
To supplement the consolidated financial statements presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP), Concord Medical uses certain non-GAAP measures. The Company presents certain of its financial information that is adjusted from results based on GAAP to exclude the impact of share-based compensation expense. The Company believes excluding share-based compensation expense from its non-GAAP financial measures is useful for its management and investors to assess and analyze the Company's core operating results as such expense is not directly attributable to the underlying performance of the Company's business operations and do not impact its cash earnings. Concord Medical also believes these non-GAAP measures excluding share-based compensation expense are important in helping investors to understand the Company's current financial performance and future prospects and to compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis. In addition, Concord Medical also presents the non-GAAP measure of Adjusted EBITDA, which is defined in this announcement as net income plus interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, share-based compensation expenses and other adjustments. Other adjustments include change in fair value of convertible notes, foreign exchange loss and other income. Furthermore, Adjusted EBITDA eliminates the impact of items that the Company does not consider indicative of the performance of its network of centers. The Company believes investors will similarly use Adjusted EBITDA as one of the key metrics to evaluate its financial performance and to compare its current operating results with corresponding historical periods and with other companies in the healthcare services industry. The presentation of these additional measures should not be considered a substitute for or superior to GAAP results or as being comparable to results reported or forecasted by other companies. The non-GAAP measures have been reconciled to GAAP measures in the attached financial statements.
