Hollysys Automation Technologies, Ltd.  (NASDAQ: HOLI) ("Hollysys" or the "Company"), a leading provider of automation and control technologies and applications in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the fiscal year 2012 third quarter ended March 31, 2012 (see attached tables).

Dr. Changli Wang, Chairman and CEO of Hollysys, stated: "We are pleased to report another quarter with solid operating and financial results.  Here I would like to take this opportunity to discuss some key events that took place in this quarter:

"Industrial automation is continuously growing towards the top position in domestic market and starting to build its brand power globally. We keep seeing strong business demand across all of our products and industry verticals. The significant growth we reported in the quarter clearly validates our dedicated industry expert total solution and sales network expansion strategies. Our established brand recognition, strong track record of customization, quality and service, efficient R&D and implementation together with customer-orientated flexibility give us a significant competitive advantage over domestic and international competitors. We believe Hollysys is in an excellent position as we pursue future growth in industrial automation market. 

"In our high-speed rail segment, we successfully won the international bid and signed a contract of approximately US$63.15 million with MTR Corporation Ltd to provide the complete suite of high-speed rail signaling systems to Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Hong Kong Section. As the first-ever international contract for our high-speed rail signaling system amid the stiff competition from other world class signaling system providers, this contract is of paramount importance and remarkable milestone in steering our business to the next level in the global arena. On the domestic side, we believe we will continue to benefit from the continuous construction of high-speed rail called by the huge demand for rail transportation across the country. With the successful Safety certification in accordance with International Standards for our Signaling products and system, we will continue to leverage on our strong commitment to Research & Development, quality and service to further explore business opportunities in both China and abroad.

"In subway business, in addition to the Hong Kong MTR contract and Beijing Subway Line 14 contract of supplying the integrated surveillance control and data acquisition system (SCADA) we signed last quarter, we are expecting our self-developed proprietary subway signaling system to obtain the European Safety Standard Certification Level 4 (SIL 4) by the end of 2012. We are excited about the subway signaling system because it clearly differentiates Hollysys and will bring us to a higher level in competing with other players to propel our subway business in both Chinese and international market.

"What's more, we made substantial progress in our strategy of international market expansion through our successfully acquired company - Concord. In this quarter Concord successfully signed a retrofit project of USD $14.02 million with Shaw Brothers Limited to supply and provide installation and electrification services for Shaw Centre in Singapore. We are seeing building automation is becoming a lucrative market given the increasing high-end commercial buildings and growing demand for retrofit projects of existing commercial buildings in many markets. Meanwhile, Concord has been actively working on a few international biddings and projects in rail and industrial automation sectors. The acquisition of Concord has been proved to be a good synergy and successful by combining our proprietary technology and Concord's international team, we will continue to leverage the core capabilities to further penetrate into the international arena and build Hollysys into a world leading automation and control technology and products provider."
