Mr. Shuipan Lin, Exceed's founder, Chairman and CEO, commented, "We are pleased to report a strong top- and bottom-line performance for the fourth quarter and full year 2010, supported by continued execution of our strategy to develop and enhance our brand, our products and our sales channels. Our results demonstrate the success of our 'happy lifestyle' brand positioning, which has helped us to gain traction among a wide range of consumers, including the younger generation, which represent the fastest growing segment of the sportswear market in China. This growing brand recognition, coupled with the expansion of our product offering, has resulted in increased customer demand and higher average selling price ("ASP") of our products.

"The strong demand from consumers has supported the continued expansion of the Xidelong retail network, as reflected by the increase in both the number and size of retail stores in 2010. In addition, we have continued to broaden our geographical footprint, especially within the rapidly growing third-tier cities in China, which will enable us to capture the opportunities from the rising disposable income in these regions.

"Our strong performance in 2010 and the increased demand for our products, as demonstrated by the orders placed for our products in our recent 2011 autumn sales fair, indicate continued opportunities for growth. We will aim to capitalize on these opportunities by executing our proven strategy, focusing on cost controls and increasing brand awareness, which we believe will allow us to continue our revenue and income growth in the year ahead."
