The increases can be explained as followed:
Land Sales: Land sales totaled 633 rais this year, divided into the sales of land in Ayutthaya for 617 rais and in Rayong for 16 rais, both in the old and new phases. The revenue in the old phase was fully recognized whereas the revenue recognition practice in the new phase (Phase 8 Stage 1) was in line with the percentage of work completed. In case the payment was made in full along with the transfer of ownership of land, the full revenue recognition was allowed. Additionally, in 2009 the Company entered into the land sale and purchase agreements for 100 rais of land with customers in Rayong but the revenue recognition from the sales took place in 2010 in proportion to the percentage of work completed. Condominium Sales: The recognition of revenues mostly came from both projects in China. In the first project, the company has started to of Goods Sold: Selling and Administration Expenses: transfer ownership in condominium units to customers, expectedly that the transfer of the remaining units will be complete within 2011. The second project has started to recognize its revenue in the third quarter under the percentage-at-completion method. Rental and Service Fees: Service fees consist at industrial water fees, wastewater treatment fees and general service fees for instance. In 2010, there were more sales of industrial water in line with the increasing number of factories and the added production capacity by the existing factories. The rental fee showed the decrease as the customers who previously used to rent land make the change from renting to buying land instead. Cost of Goods Sold: The cost of goods sold increased at the rate similar to the sales volume except for the costs of condominiums that was higher as the price of construction material and equipment rose up. Selling and Administration Expenses: The selling and administration expenses were higher than last year incurred by the expense for the construction of the patient care building for Phra Nakhon Sri Ayutthaya Hospital. It is a 5-storey building on a budget of Baht 72 million. Given the deduction by this transaction, the administration expense will be at the rate similar to the previous year, approximately 5-6% of total revenues. The increase in selling expense was influenced by tax on sales, agent commissions and advertisement fees in relation to the project in China, which was related to the condominium sales volume.
3. Revenue from Share of Profits from the Investments
The Company received share of profits from its investments in the affiliated companies proportionately to the shareholding ratio. In 2010, two subsidiaries of the Company showed better performance.

The cash flow was mostly used for the acquisition of assets of the Company and the subsidiaries that would generate future income.

If any factor is assumed to be a factor that would cause a risk or has a potential to affect the Company, then the Company and the subsidiaries will proceed to immediately rectify and improve such factor in order to reduce or eliminate the risk so as to ensure the optimum benefits of the Company and the subsidiaries.
