BEIJING, China - February 20, 2011 -- Hollysys Automation Technologies, Ltd. (Nasdaq: HOLI) ("Hollysys" or the "Company"), a leading provider of automation and control technologies and applications in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the fiscal year 2012 second quarter ended December 31, 2011 (see attached tables).

Dr. Changli Wang, Chairman and CEO of Hollysys, stated: “We are very pleased to report another quarter with solid financial and operational performance amid the unfavorable external economic conditions and feel excited about our achievements and breakthroughs in several sectors. Here I would like to take this opportunity to discuss some key events that took place in this quarter:

“Industrial automation business continues its strong growth momentum thanks to our strategy change of total solution proposition and sales force and sales network expansion. We are pleased that we won 6×660MW ultra-supercritical thermal power generating units in aggregate in 2011 in high-end thermal power automation and control market which has been pretty much dominated by multi-national corporations. We will continue to leverage on our proprietary technology and total solution approach to further penetrate into high-end segments of industrial automation and consolidate low-end to mid-end market through expanded sales and service network across the country.

“In our high-speed rail segment, we delivered satisfying financial results despite a mixed high-speed rail environment in China for this quarter, which demonstrates the strength and breadth of our high-speed rail business. We signed a contract of approximately $4.2 million to supply our 200-250km/h high-speed rail ATP equipment to Ministry of Railways of China ("MOR") while the new contract tender of China’s high-speed rail was considered to be quiet at the time. Given the intense demand for high-speed rail build-out with China’s large population transportation demand and limited land use resources together with approximately 15,000 km of high-speed rail tracks currently in construction in China which will require signaling system to be installed prior to commercial operation, we believe there is a huge market potential in high-speed rail signaling market for leading players like Hollysys to realize and capture. Besides, we have obtained European Safety Standard Certification Level 4 (SIL 4) for our proprietary signaling products, including Automatic Train Protection (ATP), Balise Transmission Module (BTM), Line-side Electronic Unit (LEU), Temporary Train Control System (TSRS), Vital Computer platform (HVC), Train Control Center (TCC) and interlocking system. With the whole product suite of our proprietary high-speed rail signaling systems development completed and received European Safety Standard certification, Hollysys is poised to explore the vast international railway market and achieve fruitful results to further create value for our shareholders.

“In our subway business segment, we’re excited from winning the competitive bid to supply our Main Control System (MCS) to Hong Kong MTR Corporation for the Hong Kong Section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link (XRL) valued at approximately HK $ 65.6 million (approximately USD $ 8.4 million). This is the first international bid of our proprietary SCADA system with the MTR Corporation against other multinational companies, which is a strong validation of our proprietary technology and implementation capabilities and a remarkable milestone of distributing our footprint in the international subway arena. As we have achieved the breakthrough of international market and have laid a solid technology foundation and accumulated in-depth implementation knowledge and experiences, we are expecting more international contracts in pipeline. In addition to the Hong Kong MTR contract, we are also excited from the contract win with Beijing Metro Construction and Administration Corporation to supply the integrated surveillance control and data acquisition system (SCADA) to Beijing Subway Line 14 at $18.8 million. We attribute this important record to our numerous successful applications, advanced technology and strong implementation capability, which has been able to stay ahead of our competition while developing along with the industry.”

“We are also very pleased to see the smooth integration with our wholly owned subsidiary Concord Corporation Pte. Ltd (“Concord”). In this quarter, Concord successfully signed a contract with Sendan International Co., Ltd to provide electrical, instrumentation and control installation works for Rabigh Power Plant Ⅱ in Rabigh, Saudi Arabia at approximately $16.90 million. This is the first sizable contract win by Concord after the acquisition and we are glad to see that Concord is continuously winning new businesses, while its integration into Hollysys has been well underway in both new products development and business development. We believe the combination of Concord’s customer base and industry know-how with Hollysys’ proprietary technology and products will pave our way to a broader market space of rail and industrial automation sectors in Southeast Asia and the Middle East.

“Another major event took place in this quarter is that we announced CFO Departure and appointment of CFO’s Replacement. We sincerely appreciate our former CFO, Mr. Peter Li for his contributions as Hollysys CFO and extend our best wishes to his new endeavors. Meanwhile, we are very pleased to see Ms. Herriet Qu, Financial Controller, is internally promoted to Chief Financial Officer of Hollysys overseeing the overall corporate financial management, who has been with the Company for more than four years with MBA degree from Oklahoma City University. After this smooth transition of CFO, together with the appointment of corporate senior executives COO, Mr. Jianfeng He, and Senior VP Business Development, Mr.Baiqing Shao, our senior management team will remain our strategic vision and continuously devote ourselves into Hollysys’ future development and growth, to better serve our clients and shareholders’ best interests.”

For the three months ended December 31, 2011, selling expenses were $8.1 million, compared to $7.0 million quarter-over-quarter, and $5.4 million year-over-year.
