 Business Outlook

We are optimistic about the second half of 2011 based on what we are seeing thus far. The efforts of our management group in all three business segments are producing greater efficiencies in both the operating infrastructure and costs control which will help us as we continue to grow. Despite the current uncertainties weighing on the global economy, we remain optimistic about the outlook of our market growth in China and as well as abroad because of growing demand, improving brand recognition, and balanced supply. We will continue to execute on the Company's core strategies of driving growth through each of our business segments.

American Lorain today announced that its Board of Directors has approved a share repurchase program that authorizes American Lorain to repurchase up to $5 million of its common stock in the open market or through privately negotiated transactions in the next 12 months. "We remain confident in the fundamentals and long-term prospects of our business. However, we believe our common shares are currently undervalued and are thus initiating this share buyback program. We will continue to focus on growing our business and thus enhancing shareholder value."

Chestnut sales (both domestically and internationally) have remained strong throughout the first four months of the year when compared to last. While it is always a challenge to precisely assess customer demand for our products, we are optimistic about fiscal 2011 based on what we are seeing thus far. The efforts of our management group in all three business segments are producing greater efficiencies in both the operating infrastructure and costs control which will help us as we continue to grow. We are in a very basic business, supplying easy, ready-to-eat food to individuals across the globe. In tough economic times, people tend to cook at home by shopping at their local grocer. This is our core business and, along with our international presence, we should be better positioned than many of our local competitors in this regard. We are optimistic about the outlook of our market growth in China and abroad because of growing demand, improving brand recognition, and balanced supply. We will continue to execute on the Company's core strategies of driving growth through each of our business segments.
