The total value of the 13 contracts amounted to 7.24 billion yuan (1.15 billion U.S. dollars), or 8.1 percent of the company’s revenues in 2011, according to a statement filed to the Shanghai Stock Exchange.

Of the contracts, five were signed between CNR and the Ministry of Railways. At 5.08 billion yuan, these contracts accounted for 70.17 percent of the total contract value.
