    IPO price was at $4 finally.
    According to company's presentation in their website, company founded in 2005.
    I believe that with their new production lines they can achieve strong growth in 2011 also. As they said, they have contracts for the 90% of their 2011 production.

    -Chery auto OEM recently entered into LOI for product and market co-development with LZEN, for its new recycled&patented product, "Evergreen LZ".

     

    -Chery started the production of a new electric car, called "Ruilin M1", in November. Their policy is to use recycled "green" material for their "green" car.
    (Also, Chery expects 32% y-o-y increase in their sales).

     

    -LZEN will complete the first two production lines for "Evergreen LZ" by February 2011 and two more by April 2012.
    This new product has higher profit margins than the existent synthetic leather which LZEN produces.
