In addition, we continued to bring new refractory products into trial use for our steel customers, with eyes on entering whole new market segments that show significant growth potential. LasTLy, we maintained our cost control, slashing operating EXpenses by 5% from last year, which contributed to our net profit outgrowing the top-line in the last quarter."

And we are pleased that our new products, the fine precISion abrasives, have already been currently in trial use by intentional customers. We look forward to receiving orders for our abrasives from these potential customers."

Third Quarter 2009 Results

For the third quarter of 2009, sales revenue was $14.9 million, an increase of 16.0% from the same period of 2008. China Gengsheng is organized into four business segments: Monolithic refractory, Industrial ceramics, Fracture proppant and Fine precision abrasives.

On September 22, 2009, the Company announced the introduction of a new refractory product for its steel company customers to cut energy coSTS and increase efficiency during steel-making. The Company held a teach-in on the new, high-performance, thermo-insulating and light castables at China's largest steel and iron conGLomerate, Shanghai Baosteel, where the Company's CEO, Vice President of Product Development and technology adviser shared product specifications and testing results with Shanghai Baosteel's directors of the procurement department, the technology department and various other managers and in-house experts.

The government is expected to provide grants and low-interest loans for the said institutes to develop new products and key innovations.

Targeting the high-growth fine precision abrasives market, the Company announced in July that its new production line to process fine abrasives was complete and in trial production. Fine precision abrasives are for producing a super-fine, super-consistent finish applicable in a broader range of areas including machine manufacturing, electronics, optical glass, architecture, semiconductors, silicon chips, plastics and lenses. The facilities have an annual production capacity of 20,000 metric tons, and the initial product should be delivered in the end of 2009. The Company has also announced its first abrasives sales contract with a Taiwan-based customer. The term of the contract is five years, with 300 to 1,000 tons of the product delivered each month.
