                    are between RMB 15,000,000 and 25,000,000), the exceeding
                    part will be allocated at the ratio of 4:6 between Party A
                    and Party B; if the exceeding part is over RMB 10,000,000
                    (that is, the sales are above RMB 2,500,000), the exceeding
                    part will be allocated at the ratio of 3:7 between Party A

               at the end of December 2006. The monthly fee for the exclusive
               advertising agency = the total of the applicable annual fee for
               the exclusive advertising agency X 1/12.
