We have made great progress in our operations and gained financial strength through our equity offering. Our resources and assets have risen through our 55% ownership in the Xinyi Fluorite Company. We look forward to reaping the benefits of rising fluorite prices and our larger fluorite volumes. The 2011 year will be highlighted by marked improvement in sales and earnings.
In the third quarter, we achieved a significant change in operations. Our major processing plants have begun operating at full scale in the third quarter of this year. We believe that this is a new beginning for our business since September 2008 after the crisis. Along with the increase in the price of our final products, this situation brings a positive change to our financial results. We expect that such full-scale operations in our plants will continue to be carried out in 2011.
