Sales are generated primarily from our farming operations and related sideline products in China. Net sales for the three months ended September 30, 2011 increased marginally by $42 million, or 17.9%, to $277.8 million, as compared to $235.6 million for the three months ended September 30, 2010.
These comparisons show that our sales in the third quarter have grown more significantly than the same period in 2010.
The overall increase in net sales was primarily a result of the strong harvest in the third quarter and the rising prices of agricultural products attributable to increasing demand in China. We also benefited from our expanded marketing network which covers more provinces, with more distributors and direct clients.
Net Income Our net income for the period grew to $38.1 million or $.25 per basic share, from $31.7 million or $.20 per basic share for the prior-year period.
