Our distributionnetwork is the culmination of a process of over a decade of searching for,identifying, negotiating with and selecting qualified distributors andthird-party sales representatives in different regions across the country. Oursales model also requires a highly effective internal management system tocontrol and support a distribution network of such large scale. Over the years,we have also developed pricing strategies, which ensure that the profit marginsof our products remain attractive to our distributors. In addition, the marketleading positions of several of our products and our strong product pipelinehelp retain our distributors. In view of this, our distribution network is noteasily replicable.
