About China Bilingual Technology & Education Group, Inc.

China Bilingual Technology and Education Group, Inc. is an education company that owns and operates high-quality, K-12 private boarding schools in China. Founded in 1998, the Company currently operates two schools encompassing the kindergarten, elementary, middle and high school levels with over 9,000 students and 1,300 faculty and staff.

The Company's schools are located in Shanxi and Sichuan Provinces and provide students with an innovative and high-quality education with a focus on fluency and cultural skills in both Chinese and English. The schools regularly rank among the top schools in their respective regions for college entrance rates and national college entrance exam scores. The Company's schools have earned excellent teaching reputations and are recognized for the success of their students and strong faculty.

As China experiences rapid industrialization and economic growth, the government is focused on education as a means to increase worker productivity and raise the standard of living. Parents in China's new middle and upper classes are sending their children to receive private school education to give them an advantage in China's increasingly competitive workforce. The Company's sector in education is not subject to corporate income tax, and the Company anticipates its growth will come from both organic growth through increased enrollment and expansion of its business model and teaching methods into new schools to be acquired by the Company.
