Dr. Changli Wang, Chairman and CEO of Hollysys, stated: "During this quarter, we unswervingly executed our originally set strategies to further intensify our marketing efforts in industrial automation, expand sales and service network across China and enhance our market position. We are glad to see that gradual recovery and new order increase of industrial automation business, which we believe will bring solid financial performance in the upcoming quarters; New products lines including 5th Generation DCS (Distributed Control System), SIS (Safety Instrumentation system), Batch, and other advanced control systems are gradually contributing more to the revenue growth, as these new products are supplementing our total solution providing and building up recognition from end customers; New businesses, like coaling mining safety solutions and machinery level control devices, are well in track for solid growth. Even though the economic downturn still extends negative impact to our industrial automation business, we continuously outperform market growth and we are not satisfied with the results achieved. Our efforts in intensifying marketing efforts to enhance market position in low-middle end market and organizing professional teams to tackle high-end market will gradually reflect on the revenue and net income growth. Besides, we believe that the intention to reduce labor cost and energy consumption, protect the environment, improve efficiency will be the major trends and will bring us tremendous business opportunities. With our solid R&D capability and profound industry knowledge, we believe Hollysys is in a superior position as we pursue future growth in industrial automation market.

"The high-speed rail business recovery is much slower than we expected, but it will be undoubtedly recovered to its normal construction pace as China is adhering to the 12th Five Year Plan for the high-speed rail construction given China's strong demand for rail transportation. In this quarter, we signed a contract to provide the Train Control Center (TCC) and Temporary Speed Restriction Server (TSRS) to Chongqing-Lichuan high-speed rail line valued at approximately 6.54 million. Besides our efforts in aggressively penetrating domestic high-speed rail and subway market, we are also exploring the overseas high-speed rail and subway opportunities, which we believe there will be fruitful results to be yield in the near future.

"More excitingly, on April 1 this year, we successfully completed the acquisition of 100% ownership of a Singapore headquartered company, Bond Corporation Pte. Ltd. and its group of companies ("Bond") to further establish our strong foothold in Southeast Asia. Bond provides complete mechanical and electrical solutions to a wide array of industries, including factories, data centers, banks, airports, commercial centers, residential buildings and infrastructure works with strong presence in Singapore and Malaysia. We are very pleased with this highly accretive and complementary acquisition, which will assist Hollysys in penetrating to the fast growing South-East Asia area. We are also excited to be able to retain a team of seasoned professionals through this acquisition, who will form the foundation of our international team to greatly enhance Hollysys capability to tackle the international market. Going into the future, Hollysys will leverage its strong proprietary technology and its capabilities accumulated from its leading positions in China's rail and industrial segments to enter and penetrate into the international market, through both organic growth and accretive acquisitions to maximize our shareholder value."

As a percentage of total revenues, overall gross margin was 43.8% for the three months ended March 31, 2013, as compared to 39.3% for the same period of the prior year. The gross margin for integrated contracts and product sales were 42.5% and 62.1% for the three months ended March 31, 2013, as compared to 37.9% and 59.9% for the same period of the prior year respectively. The gross margin fluctuation was mainly due to the different revenue mix with different margin.

For the three months ended March 31, 2013, selling expenses were $5.3 million, compared to $6.1 million for the same quarter of the prior year, representing a decrease of $0.8 million or 12.5% year over year.

The increase was mainly due to the Company's increased R&D activities. As a percentage of total revenues, R&D expenses were 12.2% and 8.4% for the quarter ended March 31, 2013 and 2012, respectively.

The VAT refunds and government subsidies amounted to $3.6 million for three months ended March 31, 2013, as compared to $2.5 million for the same period in the prior year, representing an increase of $1.1 million.

The company thus recognized an income tax credit of $2.7 million during this quarter. Excluding this impact, the income tax expense and the effective rate were 1.5 million and 14.5% for the three months ended March 31, 2013.

On a GAAP basis, net income attributable to Hollysys was $11.2 million, or $0.20 per diluted share representing a decrease of $0.3 million or 3.0%, over the $11.5 million, or $0.21 per diluted share reported in the prior year period.

Cash Flow Highlights

The net cash provided by operating activities was $13.4 million for the three months ended March 31, 2013; including investing and financing activities, the total net cash outflows for this quarter was $14.9 million, mainly due to $12.0 million deposited in banks from current accounts to time deposits with maturities between six months and one year, and $16.4 million prepaid for the acquisition of Bond Group.

Balance Sheet Highlights

The total amount of cash and cash equivalents and time deposits with original maturities over three months were $128.9 million, $133.5 million, and $126.2 million as of March 31, 2013, December 31, 2012, and March 31, 2012, respectively. Of the total $128.9 million as of March 31, 2013, cash and cash equivalents were $110.4 million, and time deposits with original maturities over three months were $18.5 million.

For the three months ended March 31, 2013, Days Sales Outstanding ("DSO") was 250 days, as compared to 160 days year over year and 161 days quarter over quarter; and inventory turnover was 78 days, as compared to 68 days year over year and 42 days quarter over quarter. The increase of DSO in the quarter was mainly due to the decrease of total revenue compared with last quarter, the account receivables as of March 31, 2013 only increased $0.1 million as compared to the end of last quarter.

Outlook for FY 2013

Dr. Wang concluded, "Due to the unexpected delay of high-speed rail orders and the weak macro-economy's impact, we are revising our previously communicated fiscal year 2013 revenue guidance of $385 million to $410 million, down to $335 million to $355 million, and non-GAAP net income guidance of $63 million to $67 million, down to $57 million to $60 million. Going into the near future, we believe with the recovery of high-speed rail construction, further penetration in the industrial automation and revenue supplement from overseas market, Hollysys is well positioned for stable and sustainable growth leveraging its leading proprietary technology, strong innovation and execution capabilities, to create long-term value for our shareholders."

Non-GAAP Measures

In evaluating our results, the non-GAAP measures of "Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses", "Non-GAAP net income attributable to Hollysys Automation Technologies Ltd. stockholders", "Non-GAAP basic earnings per share", and "Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share" serve as additional indicators of our operating performance and not as a replacement for other measures in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We believe these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors, as they exclude the stock-based compensation expenses, which is calculated based on the number of shares or options granted and the fair value as of the grant date. It will not result in any cash inflows or outflows. We believe that using non-GAAP measures help our shareholders to have a better understanding of our operating results and growth prospects. In addition, given the business nature of Hollysys, it has been a common practice for investors and analysts to use such non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company.

The following table provides a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP measures to the non-GAAP measures for the periods indicated:
