This contract win further builds on the Company's dominant market position in Guangdong Province and expands the Company's ongoing implementation of its Police-Use Geographic Information System ("PGIS") platform across China.

Successful implementation of the PGIS platform also provides an opportunity for CIST to deliver ongoing systems operation and support services, as well as application interface services that enable interaction between the PGIS platform and other infrastructure applications currently in use by the PGIS customer.

"The Heyuan PGIS win demonstrates the continuing strength of our technological capabilities and market leadership position," commented Mr. Jiang Huai Lin, CEO of China Information Security.
