(Nasdaq: CWS), ("China Wind Systems" or the "Company"), a leading supplier of forged rolled rings and other forged components to the wind power and other industries and industrial equipment primarily to the textile industry in China, today announced guidance for fiscal year 2010.
The Company expects 2010 revenues to be in the range of $76.5 million to $85 million, representing a 43% to 59% increase from $53.5 million in fiscal 2009. Earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization, which is generally referred to as EBITDA and is a non-GAAP financial measure, is expected to be in the range of $22.7 million to $25.2 million, representing a 106% to 129% increase compared to $11.0 million in fiscal 2009.

The Company anticipates stronger demand for both its traditional forged products and ESR forged products in 2010, as management expects stronger sales of precision forged products used in large wind turbines. The Company anticipates revenue contributed by its wind industry segment will increase by approximately 75%. In addition, the Company expects its dye machine segment to recover in 2010, given the industry's recovery in early 2010.
