BEIJING, March 3, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Telestone Technologies Corporation (Nasdaq: TSTC) ("Telestone" or the "Company"), a leading developer and provider of telecommunications local access networks in China, today announced that the Company has issued a letter to shareholders in response to recent allegations made about the Company, its business and accounting practices by various investor websites. To read the complete shareholder letter, see the Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on March 3, 2011 or the Company’s website at http://ir.telestone.com/irwebsite/index.php.
In the letter, Telestone's Chairman and CEO, Mr. Daqing Han, provides shareholders with detailed information regarding Telestone's business model as a provider of integrated hardware and service projects, the operating environment related to China's major telecom carriers, Telestone's revenue recognition policies, its accounts receivables, its cash conversion cycle, and the Company's future outlook.
"By reading the letter, we believe investors will gain a better understanding of our business operations and financial position. We believe the allegations made regarding our Company are without merit and misuse the complicated operating environment related to China's telecom carriers to distort the realities of our business. We are dedicated to maintaining our corporate integrity and reputation and seek to protect the interests of our shareholders," said Mr. Han.
"We remain committed to enhancing our R&D and manufacturing capabilities in an effort to maintain our industry leadership and expand our market share. In the short term, we plan to launch additional new, proprietary WFDS-based solutions to residential, commercial and government customers. We also plan to continue our overseas expansion efforts, leveraging our U.S. subsidiary, with an eye toward the European market over the next one to two years. We are optimistic about the future and look forward to executing our growth plan and continuing to generate attractive financial performance in the future."
