SHANGHAI, China, Oct. 10 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- E-House (China) Holdings Limited ("E-House" or the "Company") (NYSE:EJ), a leading real estate services company in China, today reported that during the last week of September and the first week of October, which included the National Day holiday period, the Company sold approximately 800,000 square meters of new properties with a total transaction value of approximately RMB5.5 billion. This was the result of many of the Company's major developer clients launching sales of their projects during this period. E-House expects to recognize revenues corresponding to the completed sales during the fourth quarter of 2008. Despite the overall sluggish conditions of the Chinese real estate industry, such sales performance set an all time record. During the same holiday period in 2007, E-House sold approximately 200,000 square meters of new properties with a total transaction value of approximately RMB1.5 billion. "Our strong performance during the October holiday period is a reflection of our expanded market share for primary real estate agency services," said Mr. Xin Zhou, E-House's chairman and chief executive officer. "Our increased project pipeline has enabled us to continue our growth despite the challenging conditions for the Chinese real estate market. As developers take pro-active and aggressive measures to boost sales volumes, our project pipeline is converted into sales volume and commission revenue. We remain confident in our ability to execute our strategy and continue to grow our business."
