China Security & Surveillance Technology, Inc. Updates Full Year 2010 Guidance

Jun 02, 2010, 09:40 ET from China Security & Surveillance Technology, Inc.

SHENZHEN, China, June 2 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China Security & Surveillance Technology, Inc. ("CSST" or the "Company") (NYSE: CSR; Nasdaq Dubai: CSR), a leading integrated provider of digital surveillance technology in the P.R.C., today updated its financial guidance for the full year 2010.

The Company expects to report full-year revenue in the range of $830 million to $850 million. Earning per share is expected to be in the range of $1.12 to $1.16. The average outstanding shares on a fully diluted basis for 2010 will be approximately 90 million.

The improved revenue guidance for the full year 2010 reflects the continued organic business growth of the Company and the anticipated consolidation from previously announced acquisitions which are to be completed in 2010. The Company expects the majority of the revenues will still come from organic business in 2010 and the next few years. The 11% - 15% increase of the EPS guidance as compared with 2009 full-year results is attributable to the anticipated margin expansion across all three main business segments, particularly the installation segment, despite the approximately 24% increase in the share count due to the recent public offering.

"We remain upbeat about our EPS growth in conjunction with the anticipated margin expansion. We are highly encouraged by the solid execution of previously announced E-city projects. As we continue to pursue sizeable higher-margin E-city projects, we expect to realize the benefits of increasing economies of scale and margin expansion across the Company in the years ahead," said Mr. Guoshen Tu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CSST.

"Additionally, we will focus on solid integration of the businesses and organic growth of the Company. We do not foresee any major acquisition in the near future," added Mr. Tu. "Against the backdrop of the anticipated growth, we will continue to maintain a very healthy financial position to fund our expansion plans. We do not see any immediate need for further fund raising through equity issuance over the next 12 months."
