Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2010 Update

The 56% growth in Subaye’s paying customer base from March 31, 2010 through June 30, 2010, was driven by an increase of 38% in paying members in Guangdong Province, the Company’s original and core online video advertising market. Subaye saw strong new paying member growth from both its largest province of Guangdong and from its new markets. In its third quarter ended June 30, 2010, Subaye added an additional 12,363 new paying members, with 5,419 new paying members coming from Guangdong Province and 6,944 new paying members coming from new markets. Year-to-date for the Company’s fiscal year ending September 30, 2010, paying members have more than doubled from 16,211 at September 30, 2009.

Sequential Quarter Comparison

This is the first quarter in which total new paying members from new markets exceeded that from Guangdong Province. Fiscal year-to-date, new member growth in Guangdong Province accelerated from 30% in May to 38% in June due to increased productivity from the more than 300 sales staff the Company has added in the past nine months.
