Mr. Li continued, "At the beginning of this year, one of management’s goals was to add additional customers for our finished lithium ion battery businesses, which tends to have higher profit margins than our other business segment. The Gaoke contract not only further diversifies our customer base in the distribution segment, but also further validates our ability to attract large, established customers. Our growth strategy includes both deepening our penetration of existing clients, as well as adding similar large clients in the near future."
