The Company Also Reaffirms year 2010 Revenue Guidance of $129.4 million
BEIJING, July 16 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Telestone Technologies Corporation ("Telestone" or the "Company") (Nasdaq: TSTC), a leading developer and provider of telecommunications local access networks in China, today introduced net income guidance of $22.9 million which excludes non-cash stock based compensation charges. Net profit margins are projected to be 17.7%. Management reaffirmed revenue guidance of $129.4 million for the year ending December 31, 2010.
"Demand for our proprietary, high-margin WFDS(TM) product line has accelerated as a result of Beijing's January directives to unify the delivery of telecommunication networks, TV networks, broadband data and internet access systems," stated Han Daqing. "The installation process for our WFDS(TM) business is more efficient than our traditional projects and requires less resources and working capital. We expect this to be a catalyst for both growth and margin expansion in the second half of this year and estimate that WFDS(TM) will represent at least 30% of total revenues for 2010. As a result of strong orders and improved visibility, we are reaffirming our revenue guidance of $129.4 million for 2010 and our previously stated gross margin guidance of 42%.
