China Clean Energy management continues to closely evaluate the developments relating to the recently announced consumption tax on diesel products in the Fujian Province, where the Company has operating facilities. Currently, the local tax authority has recommended that biodiesel be exempt from such tax, but a final decision is pending PRC government approval. Once a decision is announced by the PRC government, the Company will evaluate any potential impact on its biodiesel business and make the necessary adjustments to its business model.
China Clean Energy also wishes to reiterate that the implementation in Fujian of the Value-Added-Tax ("VAT") refund for biodiesel made from waste vegetable oil has not been finalized. The Company is monitoring the situation and will proceed to take advantage of this incentive once the provincial government provides more clarity.
