...also für Forlink-Verhältnisse jedenfalls. Weiß jemand was Neues zu berichten? Die Klitsche macht mittlerweile einen echt soliden Eindruck auf mich, gute Geschäftsentwicklung, ordentliche Zahlen. Ich werde das Gefühl nicht los, dass die Hütte kurz vor dem Explodieren steht! *g* Irgendwann muss sich die Warterei ja mal auszahlen...
Weniger Umsatz wegen geringerer Hardwareverkäufe, bessere Marge wegen höheren Softwareverkäufen.
Gewinn erstes Halbjahr = 0,09 US$ je Aktie, ergo 0,18 US$ im Gesamtjahr als Hochrechnung, ergibt ein KGV für 2008 von 9,17. Manko: weiterhin keine stete Umsatzsteigerung; alles sehr volatil. Ich schaue mir die Zahlen jetzt mal genauer an; hier ein erster Auszug:
Consolidated Results of Operations for the Three Months Ended June 30, 2008 and 2007.
For the three-month period ended June 30, 2008, our revenue was $1,336,067, a decrease of 40% from our revenue of $2,233,785 for the comparable period in 2007. The decrease was mainly due to decreased hardware sales.
Cost of Sales
Our cost of sales was $221,774 in the three-month period ended June 30, 2008, representing a decrease of 85% against the comparable period in 2007. The decrease was mainly due to a decrease in hardware sales for the fiscal quarter.
For the three-month period ended June 30, 2008, gross profit was $1,114,293, representing an increase of 8% against the comparable period in 2007. This increase was in line with an increase in software sales for the quarter, which has a higher gross profit ratio than hardware sales.
Total operating expenses were $1,229,502 in the three-month period ended June 30, 2008, representing an increase of 16% against the comparable period in 2007. The overall increase in operating expenses was mainly attributable to increases in selling expenses during the period.
Selling expenses were $471,064 in the three-month periods ended June 30, 2008, representing an increase of 81% against the comparable period in 2007. This increase was primarily due to our increased advertising expenses and sales efforts to market our fast growing ASP (Application Service Provider) services "For-online," our IT outsourcing services, as well as our EAI (Enterprise Application Integration) services "For-eMarket", "ForCRM" and "ForOA".
Research and development expenses were $160,334 in the three-month period ended June 30, 2008, which was approximately the amount we spent on research and development for the comparable period in 2007.
-------------------------------------------------- General and administrative expenses were $598,104 in the three-month periods ended June 30, 2008, representing a decrease of 6% against the comparable period in 2007. The decrease was primarily due to our cost control efforts in office expenses. We strengthened our budget management throughout every department of the Company and we minimized the amount of unnecessary expenses. Operating Profit (Loss)
We recorded an operating loss $115,209 for the three-month period ended June 30, 2008, representing a decrease of 355% against the comparable period in 2007. The decrease in operating profit for the second quarter of fiscal 2008 is attributable to a decrease in system integration.
Our other income was $55 for the three-month period ended June 30, 2008, as compared to $18,520 for the comparable period in 2007. The decrease was due to a decrease in software product sales for the three-month period ended June 30, 2008. Our other income is mainly derived from a value added tax refund associated with our software product sales. Software sales in China are subject . . .

Forlink Successfully Completes the Core Communication Security Guaratee Services for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games
§ The Beijing 2008 Olympic Games closed Sunday, August 24th in National Stadium. Forlink supported China Mobile Communications Corporation ("China Mobile") to complete the core communication security guarantee services for the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, and was highly praised by China Mobile.
China Mobile as the sole mobile communication cooperator for the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games is sparing no effort to fulfill its three solemn commitments to provide the Olympic Games with "the most advanced technology, the most abundant businesses, and the most thoughtful service".
During the course of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games and the Paralympic Games, besides its routine network construction and product development, China Mobile will also have to respond to any possible emergency. In allusion to the possible sharp growth of voice traffic at the opening and closing ceremonies of the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games, they have begun to get prepared very early: Firstly, obtain the first-hand data about the venues for the Games; then, estimate the total amount of people to be present at the opening and closing ceremonies; in the end, conduct reasonable network configuration and develop various contingency pre-plans on basis of such data.
During the total course of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, as a partner of China Mobile, tens of employees of Forlink took part in the communication security guarantee services. Forlink was highly commended for its hard work and professional spirit by China Mobile.
Forlink is now struggling for the coming Beijing 2008 Paralympic Games and wishes to provide better services.
