Commenting on the results for the full year of 2013, Mr. Lawrence Wang, Chairman and CEO of Dragon Capital Group, stated "While we are pleased with our performance in 2013, we faced a very challenging domestic economy in China that resulted in a slight decline in revenue and net income for the year. We continued with our efforts to move into mobile software applications and expand our gas line software monitoring business to help us expand our revenue and profit margins and we are confident this effort will be rewarded in the future. We have also further improved working capital and shareholder equity on our balance sheet to help us position our company for success in 2014 and beyond for the benefit of our stockholders."
