"Our exclusive three-year pharmaceutical distribution contract with Liujiang County Chinese Medicine Hospital dovetails well with our strategy of growing revenue while maintaining overall profitability levels. In the second half of 2010, as industry consolidation continues, we will pursue additional acquisition opportunities in China's fragmented retail pharmacy market."
