The management of Hollysys, stated: "We are pleased to report a solid financial and operational result for the first quarter of this fiscal year, here I would like to discuss some key events during this quarter:

"During this quarter, we continuously insisted in executing our strategies to vertically penetrate in the high-end industrial automation market and we have won several high-end projects in chemical, thermal, food beverage and new energy industries. We were also focusing on building strong after-sale department and set long-term goals on improving after-sale services. Our solution in reducing waste emission and environment protection proved successful. In recent operation, we have won a significant bidding to provide our proprietary DCS for 1GW Guangdong Yuedian Bohe thermal power plant. We also had a contract win of 2X800MW thermal power plant DCS reconstruction project for Liaoning Suizhong Power Plant, which marks our footstep on largest scale of power plant reconstruction area in China, proved that our leading technology and total solution has won the trust of our client to replace the foreign player's control technology and products. With China becoming an aging society and labor shortage tends to be a bigger problem, China is putting more efforts in automation to replace labor and improve efficiency to reduce emission and protect environment. We believe we will financially benefit more in the long run. Going forward, we will continue to expand our sales force and allocate more resources to high-growth industries, penetrate further into high-end market, increase market share in the low to mid-end market, expand our products supply such as software and safety protection solution, increase our overall market share and grow the business in the industrial automation leveraging our advanced technologies, experienced professionals, profound industry expertise, and customization and innovation capability.

"In rail transportation, during this quarter, we feel excited of the significant subway supervisory control and data acquisition system (SCADA) bidding win in Tianjin Subway Line 5, which is scheduled to be in operation by the end of 2017, leveraging our previous successful subway SCADA experience in Beijing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen subway lines. We will continue to deliver quality works and work closely with subway authorities in the future to promote our SCADA and future subway signaling technologies. Besides in the high-speed rail, we continuously make remarkable achievements and market share increase. Currently we are tightly executing quite a few railway lines including Qingdao-Rongcheng Line, Guiyang-Guangzhou Line, Shenyang-Dandong Line, and bidding for new projects. We also work to expand our rail products supply such as track circuit. We have finished one year testing of this product on line authorized by Beijing Railway Bureau, and soon we are going to finish the official admission progress. With China's tremendous rail and subway construction nationwide, there is going to be an exciting prospect for Hollysys. As a well-recognized rail signaling system provider, we are confident that with our strong R&D capability, solid execution and reliable products, Hollysys will continue to penetrate China's vast rail and subway construction market and achieve significant results.

"In the mechanical and electrical solution segment, Bond and Concord delivered solid growth during this quarter given their solid local market position, abundant customer resources and strong execution in Southeast Asia. For the overseas industrial automation and rail transportation expansion, we are sending qualified and experienced engineers from China to overseas, and recruiting local engineers to expand our overseas team. With our proprietary technology and products, industry expertise and strong competitive advantages, together with our expanded local channels through Bond and Concord, we will continue to make exciting achievements in the international market in both industrial and rail transportation fields, and creating value for our shareholders."

Non-GAAP Measures

In evaluating our results, the non-GAAP measures of "Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses", "Non-GAAP net income attributable to Hollysys Automation Technologies Ltd. stockholders", "Non-GAAP basic earnings per share", and "Non-GAAP diluted earnings per share" serve as additional indicators of our operating performance and not as a replacement for other measures in accordance with U.S. GAAP. We believe these non-GAAP measures are useful to investors, as they exclude the non-cash share-based compensation expenses, which is calculated based on the number of shares or options granted and the fair value as of the grant date, amortization of acquired intangibles and acquisition-related consideration fair value adjustments. They will not result in any cash inflows or outflows. We believe that using non-GAAP measures help our shareholders to have a better understanding of our operating results and growth prospects. In addition, given the business nature of Hollysys, it has been a common practice for investors to use such non-GAAP measures to evaluate the Company.

The following table provides a reconciliation of U.S. GAAP measures to the non-GAAP measures for the periods indicated:
