Mr. Zhenyong Liu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Orient Paper, commented, "Our third quarter results largely reflected the negative impact of the temporary production suspension from August 20 to September 4, 2015 mandated by the Baoding City government in connection with the International Association of Athletics Federations World Championship Games and the military parade commemorating the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II held in Beijing. Our production has resumed on September 5, 2015, and we expect to operate consistent with our ordinary course of business in the fourth quarter."
