Shuipan Lin, Exceed's founder, Chairman and CEO, commented, "2013 proved to be a challenging year for Exceed and the Chinese sportswear industry in general. Our financial results for the fourth quarter and the year ended December 31, 2013 continued to be impacted by the weakening consumer demand in China for our products, which was primarily due to the ongoing global macroeconomic uncertainties and the slowdown of economic growth in China. 
 
“However, we have seen signs of a slow market recovery in the domestic sportswear industry, and we believe that the excessive inventory or stocking, which bothered the domestic sportswear industry for quite some time, is gradually reducing. In response to the prevailing market conditions, we took a prudent approach to control the amount of orders placed by our distributors.
 
“In addition, we continue to enhance the efficiency of our distribution network by closing or relocating inefficient retail selling locations. We believe that these initiatives will help to reduce the overall inventory of finished products in the retail selling locations."
