Fourth Quarter 2012 Results
Revenue for the fourth quarter of 2012 increased 28.3% to $17.6 million, compared to $13.7 million for the same period of 2011. Revenue increased slightly compared to the third quarter of 2012.
Revenue from the sale of forged rolled rings to the wind power industry and other industries increased 2.6% to $8.3 million, or 47.2% of net revenue, compared to $8.1 million, or 59.1% of net revenue, in the same period last year.
The increase in revenue was mainly due to improving demand from existing customers in the wind power industry following several quarters of reduced order flow, which was counterbalanced by lower market demand for capital equipment related to the Company's forged rolled rings and related products for other industries.

"The year 2012 was marked by a challenging environment in China that impacted capital spending and demand from customers in our key end markets, particularly during the first half of the year. Despite these challenges, we closed the year with 28.3% growth in revenue in the fourth quarter, driven by strong demand for our patented airflow dyeing machines and improving sales of forged products to customers in the wind power industry. Although we recorded a non-cash impairment loss related to equipment which we are no longer using and which is being held for sale during the fourth quarter, we were still profitable due to greater operational efficiencies and careful cost control," said Mr. Jianhua Wu, Chairman and CEO of Cleantech Solutions.
