|1)||Due to increased market demand of construction materials and shortage of supply on the current market, particularly the piping systems in the real estate sector, we observed an increase of weighted average selling price (“ASP”) during the fiscal year 2021.|
|2)||As a result of global shortage of construction materials, our domestic sales increased over 12.40% compared to the last fiscal year. Our international sales revenue during fiscal year 2021 amounted to $17.12 million, an increase of $5.25 million, or 44.2%, compared to last fiscal year|
