For the year ended 31 December 2012, the Group''s revenue was approximately RMB871.4 million, a decrease of approximately 6.1% as compared with approximately RMB927.8 million in the previous year.

Profit attributable to equity shareholders of the Company was approximately RMB74.0 million in 2012, a decrease of approximately 54.3% as compared with approximately RMB162.1 million in the year 2011. The decrease in profit was mainly due to the decline of the average selling price of the textile products of the Group resulted from the declining international and domestic economies, the continued rising production costs and the increase of the non-recurring listing expenses.
