Full Year 2010 ResultsMindray reported net revenues of $704.3 million for the full year 2010, an 11.1% increase from $634.2 million for the full year 2009.
Full year 2010 EBITDA decreased 1.0% year-over-year to $192.1 million from $194.0 million in the full year 2009.
Full year 2010 net income was $155.5 million compared to $139.2 million in 2009. Full year 2010 non-GAAP net income increased 16.0% year-over-year to $170.9 million from $147.4 million in 2009.

Full year 2010 income tax expense was $17.6 million, representing an effective tax rate of 10.2% compared to 17.1% in the full year 2009.
Full year 2010 diluted earnings per share increased 7.4% year-over-year to $1.32 from $1.23 in the full year 2009. Full year 2010 non-GAAP diluted earnings per share increased 11.5% to $1.45 from $1.30 in the full year 2009.
In February 2011, we obtained a nationwide key software enterprise status, which allows us to enjoy 10% corporate income tax rate for our Shenzhen subsidiary for calendar year 2010. The related tax saving as a result of this change in 2010 corporate income tax rate for the Shenzhen subsidiary was estimated to be $7.8 million. U.S. GAAP requires the company to recognize the related financial impact as a result of the change in enacted tax rate when substantive approval is received. As a result, the related adjustment to our corporate income tax provision will be recorded in the first quarter of 2011 and the applicable corporate income tax rate for our Shenzhen subsidiary as reported in the 2010 financial statements remains at 15%. The granting of the nationwide key software enterprise status is subject to approval each year. There is no reliable indication that Mindray will be granted this status in 2011 or in any future years.
Dividend DeclarationMindray's board of directors has declared a cash dividend on its ordinary shares of $0.30 per share, based on the company's net income for the full year 2010. The cash dividend will be payable on or around June 1, 2011, to shareholders of record as of April 26, 2011. The company has approximately 115.1 million ordinary shares outstanding as of February 28, 2011.
Business Outlook for Full Year 2011Mindray expects that the Shenke acquisition agreement will have minimal impact to its financial results in 2011. The company continues to expect its full year 2011 net revenues to be more than 16% higher than its full year 2010 net revenues.
The company also expects its full year 2011 non-GAAP net income to grow more than 10% over its non-GAAP net income for full year 2010. This guidance excludes the tax benefits related to the key software enterprise status ($8.6 million recognized in the first quarter of 2010 and approximately $7.8 million to be recorded in the first quarter of 2011) and assumes a corporate income tax rate of 15% applicable to the Shenzhen subsidiary.
The company expects its capital expenditure for 2011 to be in the range of $70 million to $80 million.
The company's practice is to provide guidance on a full year basis only. This forecast reflects Mindray's current and preliminary views, which are subject to change.
"Looking ahead to 2011, the overall market environment continues to improve," commented Li Xiting, Mindray's President and Co-Chief Executive Officer. "There are still lingering uncertainties in some markets, such as the political instability in the Middle East and Africa. Nonetheless, we are optimistic about the growth prospects of our key international territories, particularly in emerging markets, as well as the recovery of the US business and the continued robust investment and spending in the Chinese healthcare sector. We will strive to achieve another year of operational excellence through continually investing in our international sales and marketing infrastructure, both in key emerging markets and developed markets. In China, although tender business will continue to be unpredictable, we are encouraged about our non-tender sales based on the government's renewed focus on county level hospitals as well as the progress of our strategic initiatives. Last but not least, R&D investment remains Mindray's top priority."
