Sept 30 (Reuters) – China’s A-Power Energy Generation Systems Ltd on Thursday won a contract worth RMB 242 million ($2.9 million) to build power plants, its second such contract in as many days, sending its shares up 12 percent.

You have a decimal point error in the APWR story. It should be 29 million, not 2.9 million. How about a retraction/update?

We did a very bad conversion. We corrected the story to change $2.9 million to $36 million: GBU Editor
