"We are very pleased with our first quarter results. These results reflect strong organic growth and the contribution of our recently completed acquisitions. Asia's robust economic growth continues to fuel demand for our products. We are focused on highly sought-after organic products, herbal and chemical extracts and natural and health supplements. We have put in place a solid foundation for strong organic growth and continue to seek strategic acquisitions," stated Marius Silvasan, ONE's CEO.
"The increase in our ownership position in one of our key subsidiary, which occurred April 19, 2010, will result in a decrease in the non-controlling interest in future periods further improving our net income and earnings per share. Historically the first quarter is the weakest quarter of the year. We anticipate even stronger results for the remaining three quarters of 2010," added Silvasan.
