Management Commentary: Continued Acceleration in Signing of Wastewater Agreements

"This is a major progression in our partnership with Qinghai Oilfield, and an indication of the upside potential of Recon in the oilfield environmental protection market," stated Mr. Yin Shenping, CEO of Recon, "Our oilfield waste water treatment business has continued to expand rapidly, as agreements have continued to grow in terms of size and number. In fiscal 2017, we grew our revenue in this business by over 371%."

Mr. Yin continued, "The market potential in wastewater represents a significant opportunity for Recon in the coming quarters, as many of the investments made by our Company during the downturn in oil prices have begun to materialize into increasing orders in the past six months. The principal driver of growth in this market is increased regulatory requirements amidst the need for greater environmental protection, which is creating a need for our large-oilfield clients to utilize our products and services to improve their waste services. We have leveraged experience, data analysis, and research to develop solutions for these large-scale oilfield companies in China, many of which we have had relationships with for over a decade. The increasing amounts of agreements represents more than simply what the amounts themselves represent, as the overall perception of Recon is changing from merely an oilfield service company to a hi-tech company in our marketplace ."
