"We are quite pleased with Jin Ma Real Estate's new real estate development projects, and we are confident that the Jin Ma Companies remain on track to become one of the most prominent construction and real estate development companies in Inner Mongolia, China. We are confident that real estate development in Hohhot, Inner Mongolia and its surrounding areas, a third- tier city, will remain strong and will not feel the effects of the slower real estate markets occurring in tier-one cities such as Beijing and Shanghai," said Mr. Liankuan Yang, chairman and CEO of Gold Horse
Fiscal 2010 Results
For the fiscal year 2010, net revenue was $50.9 million, down 37.1% from $80.9 million in fiscal 2009. Construction revenue was $37.5 million or 73.7% of net revenue, down from $77 million, or 95.2% of net revenue for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2009.
-- The 51.3% decrease in construction revenues was mainly caused by a softening of the real estate market in Hohhot. Additionally, the reduction of construction revenue was attributable to the shift in focus from acting as general contractor for third parties to acting as general contractor for the real estate development business in order to vertically integrate all development processes from construction management to the sale of real estate units to customers. -- Revenue from the hotel segment was $3.1 million, down 11.4% from $3.5 million in the same period last year. -- Revenue from the real estate segment was $10.3 million, up 2,601% from $0.38 million. During fiscal 2010, the real estate business, Jin Ma Real Estate, in cooperation with the construction business, Jin Ma Construction, who acted as general contractor, developed Buildings 1 to 4 of Procuratorate Housing Estates and Jian Guan Residential buildings (also known as building 5 of the Procuratorate Housing Estates). In fiscal 2010, Jin Ma Real Estate sold substantially all of the units of real estate held for sale and recognized revenue from the sale of these units.
Gross profit for the year was $10.2 million, down 18.1% from $12.4 million last fiscal year. Gross margin was 20%, up from 15.3% in the prior year.
Operating expenses for the fiscal year were $2.2 million, or 4.32% of net revenue. While the Company incurred lower salaries and employment benefits and depreciation and amortization expenses, operating expenses increased due to increases in hotel operating expenses and general and administrative expenses.
Operating income for fiscal 2010 was $7.98 million, down from $10.8 million in fiscal 2009.
Operating margin for the fiscal year of 2010 was 15.7% as compared to 13.3% in fiscal 2009.
The Company recorded net income of $8.3 million in fiscal 2010 as compared to net income of $6.2 million in fiscal 2009. Adjusted net income excluding non-cash gains and expenses was $6.6 million or $3.99 per fully diluted common share as compared to adjusted net income of $7.5 million or $3.86 per fully diluted common share in fiscal 2009.
As of June 30, 2010, Gold Horse had $0.3 million in cash and cash equivalents, short-term debt of $3.1 million and long-term debt of $0.35 million. Shareholders' equity was $36.6 million, up from $30.3 million as of June 30, 2009. Cash provided by operating activities for fiscal 2010 was $0.3 million.
The Jin Ma Companies are in various stages of development of three new real estate development projects totalling approximately $96 million in estimated revenues over fiscal years 2011 to 2013. These projects are a joint effort between the Jin Ma Construction and Jin Ma Real Estate with the construction business serving as the general contractor for the construction of these projects.
Mr. Liankuan Yang, Chairman and CEO of Gold Horse, offered a brief description on each project:
-- In July 2010, construction of buildings No. 6 of the Procuratorate Housing Estates (Jiari Residential Building) began which consists of a construction area of 38,000 square meters and is expected to be completed in October 2011, with estimated revenues of $22 million. Jin Ma Real Estate will sell units to individual homebuyers. -- In October 2010, Jin Ma Construction is expected to begin the construction of the Beiyuan Residential Building Project, which is in proximity to Xinchen District Government Building and consists of a construction area of 70,000 square meters with an expected completion date of June 2012, and estimated revenues of $37 million. Jin Ma Real Estate will sell units to individual homebuyers. -- In August 2011, Jin Ma Construction expects to begin the construction of the Jinwu Residential Building Project, which consists of a construction are of 100,000 square meters with an expected completion date of December 2012, and estimated revenues of $37 million.

Reconciliation of Net Income to Adjusted Net Income
In addition to disclosing financial results in accordance with United States generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and to supplement the Company's consolidated financial statements presented on a GAAP basis in Table 1, the Company's earnings release contains the non-GAAP financial measures "adjusted net income."
Adjusted net income is not a measure of performance defined in accordance with GAAP. However, management believes that adjusted net income is useful to investors in evaluating the Company's performance because adjusted net income reflects the elimination of interest expense from the amortization of debt discount and debt issuance costs associated with the Company's convertible debt and warrants as well as a gain from derivative liabilities and extinguishment of debt.
Management believes that the disclosure of adjusted net income offers an additional view of the Company's operations that, when coupled with the GAAP results and the reconciliation to GAAP net income, provides a more complete understanding of the Company's results of operations and the factors and trends affecting the Company.
Adjusted net income should not be considered as an alternative to net income as an indicator of the Company's performance or as an alternative to net cash provided by operating activities as a measure of liquidity. The primary material limitations associated with the use of adjusted net income as compared to GAAP net income is:
-- it may not be compared to similarly titled measures used by other companies in the Company's industry, and -- it excludes financial information that some may consider important in evaluating the Company's performance.
The Company compensates for these limitations by providing a reconciliation of adjusted net income to GAAP net income to enable investors to perform their own analysis of the Company's operating results.
