Commenting on the results, Liu Shenghong, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the company stated, "I am pleased to report China Industrial Steel's financial results for the first quarter of 2013. Company revenues were up as a result of the rebound in China's demand for steel, and we remain profitable despite the industry wide decline in selling prices resulting from inventory stockpiles over the past year."
Chairman Liu went on to say, "Demand for our steel plate and wire increased during the quarter reflecting China's continued economic growth and the government's investment in infrastructure projects, such as roads, railways and bridges. We anticipate market prices will return to prior levels as steel manufacturers work through their backlog to supply these large scale projects and the forecast growth in other steel dependent industries, including the automotive and construction sectors."
