Exceed reports 2009 fiscal year results above earn-out targets
Apr '10
Exceed Company Ltd one of China's leading domestic sports and leisurewear brands announced financial results for the year ended December 31, 2009.

Shuipan Lin, Exceed's founder, Chairman and CEO, commented, "2009 was an especially meaningful year for our Company. We started the year as a privately-held business and concluded as a publicly owned company trading on NASDAQ and the first Chinese sportswear brand to be listed in the United States. Even though we only obtained financial resources from our newly-listed status in the last quarter of 2009, we are pleased that we achieved meaningful growth in our revenue, gross profit and net profit for the year ended 2009 as compared with the year ended 2008."

Chairman Lin continued, "Our retail distribution network has grown over the course of 2009. We ended the year with 3,694 retail stores in our network, up from 3,277 at the end of 2008. The results from our sales fairs, at which more than 90% of our products are sold, have also been very encouraging. During our September 2009 sales fair, for which the majority of deliveries are made in 2010, orders increased by more than 40% compared to the same sales fair in 2008. During our February 2010 sales fair, orders increased by more than 18.2% compared to the February 2009 sales fair."

Chairman Lin added, "Going forward, we will continue to remain focused on improving our business by expanding our distribution network and strengthening our operations."

Pursuant to the earn-out provisions of the agreement for sale and purchase ("Sale and Purchase Agreement") dated May 8, 2009 entered into among Windrace International Company Limited, the Company and the original shareholders of Windrace International Company Limited, among others, as amended by a supplemental agreement dated July 24, 2009, the Company anticipates that it will issue 5,563,714 common shares to the original shareholders of Windrace International Company Limited in 2010. This earn-out issuance is a result of the Company achieving its 2009 Target Earnings (as defined in the Sale and Purchase Agreement) of US$38,067,350.

The Company anticipates that management will conduct a multi-week global roadshow to meet with investors and potential investors as soon as practicable after this announcement. Persons who are interested in meeting with management are requested to refer to the contact listed below.
