CDC Software, a wholly owned subsidiary of CDC Corporation and a provider of industry-specific enterprise software applications and business services, today announced it completed its acquisition of a 51 percent stake in Integrated Solutions Limited, a Hong Kong-based vendor of ERP systems designed for small and medium-sized discrete manufacturers in China. With this investment, along with our award-winning solutions, services, extensive infrastructure and deep expertise of the China market, we are now strongly positioned to more fully exploit the significant opportunities in the largest manufacturing market in the world, said Peter Yip, executive chairman of CDC Software.

We plan to leverage ISL's impressive track record of hundreds of successful deployments in southern China as we expand our market presence throughout the country. With our highly-popular Ross Enterprise applications for process manufacturers and the addition of ISL's applications for discrete manufacturers, we now have solutions for the entire industry. A top priority for us will be to expand rapidly in China, particularly targeting the millions of small and medium-size manufacturers with our complementary software solutions. As previously announced, ISL joins CDC Software's successful Franchise Partner Program that includes Franchise Partners located in India, Argentina, Spain and Mexico. Under this program, CDC Software establishes strategic relationships with partners in selected geographies through majority control, as well as minority investments.
