For ChinaSoft International, 2011 was not only a year of building its strategic system; it was also a flourishing year of strategic cooperation. Its collaboration with Microsoft was deepened when Microsoft converted all the preferred shares to common shares, which demonstrated Microsoft's confidence in its further cooperation with ChinaSoft International. Besides, ChinaSoft International introduced Hony Capital (a PE fund sponsored by Legend Holdings Limited) as its strategic investors and formed strategic cooperation partnership. Leveraging Hony Capital's brand name, industry recognition and capital market resources, Chinasoft International will act as the platform to consolidate information services industry. Dr. Chen Yuhong, Chairman of the Board of ChinaSoft International said, "The introduction of Hony Capital as our largest substantial shareholder would be the Company's 'magic cudgel', which will support the management to run and focus on the business, support the Company to engage in acquisition and merger at home and abroad, and become a powerful backing to fuel the market deployment of the Company. Meanwhile, enterprises associated with Legend and Hony Capital are themselves word-class companies, which in return are the best targets for the Company in exploring its cornerstone customers."

Looking ahead in 2012, ChinaSoft International will embrace a new historical opportunity: signing a joint venture agreement with Huawei for building a flagship software outsourcing company. ChinaSoft International will start from being Huawei's eminent supplier to build an excellent operation system featuring strategic planning, quality management, project management, customer satisfaction etc., such that our organization and flow, quality system and human resources system are aligned strictly with those of Huawei, in order to become its most reliable strategic cooperation partner in respect of the outsourcing services.
