Zuoan Fashion enjoys meaningful double digit growth

Zuoan Fashion Limited, a leading design-driven fashion casual menswear company in China, announced its financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2010.

James Hong, Founder, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We were pleased with our results for the fourth quarter and 2010 fiscal year. We enjoyed meaningful double digit growth over the prior year as measured by store count, revenue, gross profit, operating profit and net income. Our growth was primarily driven by distributor sales volume and the expansion of our sales network.”

“In order to accelerate the expansion of our successful distributor model, we plan to open direct flagship stores which we believe will motivate distributors to expand their distributor store network at a faster rate, stimulate distributor store sales in the nearby regions as well as to strengthen Zuoan's brand equity. In order to focus on the opening of our flagship stores, we successfully transferred all 31 of our direct normal stores to our distributors in January 2011. In addition, we appointed three additional distributors in January 2011 in order to continue our sales network expansion efforts.”

“We have built an excellent platform for future growth through our initiatives including expanding our distribution network coverage, building our flagship store network and enhancing our marketing activities as well as strengthening our design capabilities. We are excited to continue to build our brand and improve our revenue and profit growth this year and beyond,” concluded Mr. Hong.

Fourth Quarter 2010 Financial Highlights

• Revenues in the fourth quarter of 2010 were RMB258.2 million ($39.1 million), an increase of 26.9% from RMB203.4 million in the same quarter of 2009.
• Gross profit in the fourth quarter increased 21.0% year over year to RMB103.8 million ($15.7 million) from RMB85.8 million ($13.0 million).
• Gross profit margin was 40.2% compared to 42.2% in the prior year period and 41.2% in the 2010 third quarter. Fourth quarter 2010 gross margin decreased primarily due to the Company's efforts to effectively manage its inventory by reducing out-of-season inventory at prices discounted below the Company's general wholesale price range as well as clearing shop level stock as the Company's direct stores were transitioned to its distributors.
• Net income was RMB55.3 million ($8.4 million), an increase of 43.5% from RMB38.5 million in the same quarter of 2009.
• Basic and diluted earnings per share increased to RMB0.69 ($0.10) in the fourth quarter, equivalent to RMB2.77 ($0.42) per American depositary share (“ADS”), compared to basic and diluted earnings per share of RMB0.48 ($0.07), equivalent to RMB1.93 ($0.29) per ADS, in the fourth quarter of 2009.
• Pro forma diluted earnings per share, which takes into account convertible bonds converted since FY10, increased to RMB0.66 ($0.10) in the fourth quarter, equivalent to RMB2.63 ($0.40) per ADS, compared to pro-forma diluted earnings per share of RMB0.46 ($0.07), equivalent to RMB1.85 ($0.28) per ADS, in the fourth quarter of 2009.
