The Group's turnover surged 29.0% to approximately RMB81.4 million for the three months ended 31 March 2014 ("Q1 2014"), mainly attributable to the increase in the average selling prices of the Group's Processed Wood Products (including Processed Wood Panels and Processed Finger Joint Wood Panels) by around 16.2% during Q1 2014 as compared to Q1 2013 as driven by the increased product quality and market recognition of the Group's products.

Benefitting from these factors, profit attributable to equity shareholders of the Company increased by 1.8 fold with net margin reaching 7.9%.

During the periods under review, turnover from sales of Processed Wood Panels increased substantially by 40.1% to around RMB66.0 million. Following the enhancement of the product quality, the increasing market recognition and market demand, the Group was able to raise the average selling price of this product by around 20% period-on-period.

Processed Finger Joint Wood Panels

Cut-offs and small pieces produced during the trimming process of Processed Wood Panels are laminated, pressed and further processed to form Processed Finger Joint Wood Panels, which are in the form of standard-sized boards of wooden panels and generally used to produce wooden furniture, doors and window frames. Turnover from sales of Processed Finger Joint Wood Panels maintained at RMB15.4 million during the period. The Group was able to raise its average selling price by around 9% due to the enhancement of the product quality.

Thanks to the increasing popularity of the Group's products, the total volume of Processed Wood Products sold rose from about 18,135 m3 in Q1 2013 to about 20,135 m3 in Q1 2014.

Ms. Yim Tsun, Chairlady of China Wood Optimization, said, "We are thrilled to deliver such encouraging results following our listing on the GEM Board of the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.
