For the year ended December 31, 2009, revenues are expected to be in the range of $45-46 million, a more than 130% increase from full year 2008 results of $19.22 million. Full year 2009 net income is expected to be in the range of $10.5-11 million, or $0.22 to $0.23 diluted earnings per share, which is an approximately $13 million increase from full year 2008's net loss of $2.22 million, or $(0.07) diluted earnings per share.

Mr. Guohua Ku, Chairman and CEO of CREG, commented, "During the course of 2009, CREG is able to delivery on all of its goals and expectation for shareholder values and customers. In fact, we were able to significantly beat our financial projections by over 30% for the year. As we enter 2010, we expect to be able to continue strong development momentum and achieve sustained growth with the platform that we are continuing building up in China's tremendous energy inefficiency and the strong government incentives that clean tech sector is receiving. Our Build-Operate-Turn Key ("BOT") model allows us significant visibility based on previously executed contracts and revenue generated from electricity sales in relation to those contracts."
The Company anticipates filing its full year 2009 results and will issue its 2010 guidance by March 31, 2009.
