Mr. Steven Ross, Executive Vice President of Longhai, said, “We are pleased to report record sales for 2011, largely driven by the opening of our new production facility in the fourth quarter of 2011. As the newly-opened steel wire facility continues to ramp output, we expect to see continued year-over-year improvements in operating results throughout 2012. During the first quarter of 2012 we also reconstituted our Board of Directors and transitioned to a new auditing firm, Marcum Bernstein & Pinchuk, LLP, both significant steps toward our goal of moving to a senior exchange.
Once fully ramped, the new facility will increase our overall capacity by approximately 60%, and have the capability to produce such high margin products as alloy steel, cold forging steel and welding rods. Over the next two quarters we expect to begin utilizing higher quality steel billets, which will enable us to produce higher quality and higher margin products for additional markets beyond construction and infrastructure.”
