- Net Income before taxes of $2.6 million: Gross profit for the year ended December 31, 2018 was $2.8 million, compared to nil for the comparable period in 2017. This significant increase of gross profit margin was mainly because our China-based operation entity, GZ WFH, launched the operation and received the orders in 2018.

We expect that the long term demand over the next several years in China to be more than 10,000 systems and 16,000 systems worldwide.”
