The service income derived from the Four Northern Ports and other ports (areas) increased by 11.9% and 42.9%, respectively, as compared to 2015.

The growth in the performance of the Company was primarily attributed to the following factors: (1) an increase in the concentration of the major customers as a result of the recovery of coal industry, active trading market and reform of the production side; (2) more efforts put on marketing and sales and more orders obtained from the participation in tendering activities; (3) the competitive edge in the service network of the Company through upgrading and increasing service centers; and (4) a substantial improvement in the technology level and service efficiency as a result of the smooth progress of the research and development work as well as research and development of intelligent equipment and informatized upgrading of the business, which has further enhanced the competitiveness and brand value of the Company.

During the Review Period, the Company completed the upgrading of the service center located in Huanghua port (phase I), which had the largest business volume among the Four Northern Ports, and the new service center in Tangshan port (Jingtang port) is under construction and will complete construction in the second quarter of 2017. Meanwhile, in July 2016, the ninth service center located in Jiangyin, Jiangsu was put into operation, which has improved the domestic service network. Through upgrading of the service centers located in the Four Northern Ports, the Company was enabled to improve the production capacity and accommodate increased business volume.

The Company put further efforts on the research and development work, and managed to achieve satisfactory results during the Review Period. The business informatized management system developed by the Company has completed and applied in its business. The work base station for robot sampling which the Company worked with a robot manufacturer has been developed and will be put into operation in April 2017. In addition, the Company applied for 14 new patents (including an invention, utility model and software copyright) and published 2 corporate standards. Such progress in the core business, research and development will help the Company to solidify its leading position in the industry and improve its core competitiveness in the coal testing and inspection industry in the future.
