Looking forward, we will continue to expand our leading network by opening new centers and to improve the operational efficiency of existing centers. Our target is to operate at least 200 centers by 2012 and we are moving quickly toward that goal. In addition, the development of our two specialty cancer hospitals is well under way.

Concord Medical reported total net revenues of RMB86.8 million ($12.7 million) for the fourth quarter of 2009, a 24.3% increase from the corresponding period in 2008, primarily due to an increase in patient cases from existing centers and the opening of new centers.
Cost of revenues in the fourth quarter of 2009 was RMB25.0 million (US$3.7 million), a 45.2% increase from the corresponding period in 2008, primarily due to an increase in depreciation costs related to new equipment installation in 2009.
Gross profit margin in the fourth quarter of 2009 was 71.2% as compared to 71.4% in the previous quarter and 75.3% in the corresponding period in 2008.

Operating income was RMB48.4 million ($7.1 million) in the fourth quarter of 2009, representing a 10.2% increase from the corresponding period in 2008.

Net income was RMB35.9 million ($5.3 million), representing an 8.2% decrease from the corresponding period in 2008. This decrease was primarily due to a RMB7.7 million one-time gain recognized as other income in the fourth quarter of 2008. Both basic and diluted earnings per ADS for the fourth quarter of 2009 amounted to RMB0.69($0.10).
Net income excluding share-based compensation expenses (non-GAAP) was RMB36.9 million ($5.4 million), a 5.6% decrease from the corresponding period in 2008.

Fiscal Year 2009 Results
Total net revenues in 2009 were RMB292.4 million ($42.8 million), representing a 70.2% increase from RMB171.8 million in 2008, primarily due to (i) an increase in patient cases from existing centers and the opening of new centers, and (ii) consolidation of China Medstar's revenues for the entire fiscal year 2009 as compared to for the last five months of 2008, as a result of the acquisition of China Medstar being completed in July 2008.
Cost of revenues in 2009 was RMB87.6 million (US$12.8 million), representing a 92.0% increase from RMB45.6 million in 2008, primarily due to the an increase depreciation cost related to the opening of new centers and the resulting increase in salaries and benefits to additional personnel employed and assigned to the new centers.
Gross profit margin in 2009 was 70.1%, compared to 73.5% in 2008.

General and administrative expenses in 2009 were RMB29.8 million ($4.4 million), representing a 58.0% increase from RMB18.9 million in 2008, which was primarily due to (i) increases in headcount and travel expenses, and (ii) increases in auditing expenses and share based compensation charges.

Statement Regarding Unaudited Financial Information

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 (loss) 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.
