Last year Kiwa Tianjin asserted that Challenge Feed unlawfully disposed of assets held by Kiwa Tianjin. Such assets include machinery and equipment and inventories. Kiwa Tianjin announced it was seeking damages against Challenge Feed in the amount of approximately RMB 2.2 million in total. The local court of Wuqing District has informed the Company that it will not examine the lawsuit against Challenge Feed since Challenge Feed has entered into bankruptcy proceedings. Related matters will be solved during Challenge Feed's bankruptcy proceedings. On August 29, 2010, Kiwa Tianjin filed objections to the local court of Wuqing District and Challenge Feed's bankruptcy administrator. According to Challenge Feed's bankruptcy administrator, the filed objections have been received but have not been examined.
This past summer we announced that Kiwa was seeking to gain market awareness for its fertilizer products by working closely with Kangtai and San Kang Safe Agricultural Distribution Network Project (San Kang Club). This includes a prototype vegetable delivery model to satisfy high-end customers' demand for better food. Kangtai has contracted to grow food in fields only fertilized with Kiwa Bio-Tech's fertilizers and is delivering these products directly to customers. The vegetable baskets have Kiwa's logo much as many computers have a sticker, "Intel Inside".
There has been strong market acceptance of the green food products. The Company expects improved results during this growing season. However, severe weather and droughts in large agricultural areas of China make it difficult to forecast fertilizer demand.
