Mr. Gary Wang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of CCRC, said that The momentum of their business remained strong as the have maintained nearly full capacity during the first half of this year. However, Because of capacity limitations, they were forced to give up on several low priority clients to make room for new clients that included China Merchants Bank, ofo, Rong360.com, TianAn Life Insurance, and J.K. Life Insurance. Because of our business portfolio restructuring, the company revenues were essentially flat year over year while margins and profitability reduced. The minor decline in margins and profitability was primarily Because of higher operating expenses incurred during the first half of this year. Looking ahead,
