Second Quarter of FY2017 Results of Operations

Total net sales for the three months ended December 31, 2016 were $58,745,013, an increase of $1,779,013, or 3.1%, from $56,966,000 for the three months ended December 31, 2015. During the last quarter, the currency value of the Chinese RMB against the US dollar had decreased by 5%. Such depreciation was more rapid than our expectation from the beginning of the fiscal year. While the revenue reported in US dollars is lowered by the depreciation in currency exchange, the revenue earned in RMB is in line with our expectations.

The year-over year increase of net sales was largely due to the inclusion of variable interest entities' (the "VIEs") net sales during the three months ended December 31, 2016, which contributed approximately $8.4 million, or 14.3%, of the total net sales.
