  • On August 17 and June 27, 2011, Shenzhen Inscom E-commerce Co. Ltd. ("Inscom"), an affiliated subsidiary of CNinsure, entered into an e-commerce strategic partnership with China Pacific Property Insurance Co. Ltd. and Sunshine Property and Casualty Insurance Co., Ltd., respectively, pursuant to which both parties of the agreements will expand their scope of cooperation to include online sales and telesales through Inscom's e-commerce platform. They also agree to enhance collaboration on market development, product design and customer services. Both parties' network platforms will be interconnected to each other in order to facilitate transaction processing.

  • As of June 30, 2011, CNinsure's distribution and service network consisted of 582 sales and services outlets operating in 23 provinces, compared to 5373 sales and service outlets operating in 23 provinces as of June 30, 2010. CNinsure had 44,971 sales agents and 1,364 professional claims adjustors as of June 30, 2011, compared to 35,7514 sales agents and 1,358 professional claims adjustors as of June 30, 2010.

  • Total spending for the construction of e-commerce platform for the second quarter of 2011 was RMB2.4 million (US$0.4 million), primarily incurred by research and development and payroll for the R&D professionals.  

Business Outlook

Going forward, the Company will offer quarterly guidance for total net revenues instead of net income attributable to the Company's shareholders in view of the increased uncertainty in its net income due to inflationary concerns, strategic spending on e-commerce insurance business and professional fees related to the non-binding going-private proposal that the Board received on May 14, 2011.

CNinsure expects its total net revenues from continuing operations to grow by approximately 22% for the third quarter of 2011 compared to the corresponding period of 2010. This forecast reflects CNinsure's current and preliminary view, which is subject to change.
