Revenue for 4Q14 fell 1.5 percent to RMB50.1 million, compared to RMB50.9 million in 4Q13, attributable to a slowdown in production activities, and the reversal in revenue following the cancellation of two contracts in 1H 2014. For FY14, the company managed a narrowed loss of RMB290.5 million compared to RMB552.2 million in FY13, while FY14 revenue plunged 67.5 percent to RMB176.3 million from 542.9 million yuan in FY13.
