Jun-20-08 FB Has this been a good year for the company? ZK Yes, this has been our best year both in China and worldwide. In China, thanks to the growing Chinese economy and the fact that fingerprint Time & Attendance applications are widely accepted, our business grew 150%. ZK now has 30 branches offices. Also China will host the Olympics this year and with the increased focus on security, this is also helping drive biometrics growth. We are especially pleased with our worldwide growth. Our business has grown over 70% in the USA and Europe. This year our R&D dept will be expanded to around 200 engineers and we have also established a new factory. ZK now has two factories, one is for the local Chinese market and one is for the international market. The ZKSoftware brand is already an international brand and ZK products are sold to more than 130 countries, of which 60 countries have ZK main distributors. In 2008, ZK also decided to enter the RFID industry. FB Your new line of biometric access control and time and attendance products is called the LA2000. What new features does this product have? ZK Recently, ZKSoftware and Lumidigm JDM (joint design manufactured) LA2000. The sensor in the LA2000 is also used for Disney Hong Kong and for Hong Kong Immigration Check Point.
