The effective tax rate for the first quarter of 2010 was 12%, decreasing from 18% in the same period of 2009 and 20% in the previous quarter, primarily due to certain tax benefit granted by the local tax bureau in the first quarter of 2010.

For the second quarter of 2010, the company expects to continue the net revenue growth year-on-year at a rate of approximately 30-35%.
