Tri-Tech Holding (TRIT) smashed analyst estimates after the bell tonight reporting an EPS of .21/share (vs the estimate for just .13/share) on revenues of $17.5 million (vs the estimate for $9.3 million).  That represents quarter over quarter EPS and revenue growth of 40% and 314% respectively.  A real nice quarter out of TRIT tonight despite lower margins due to a decline in higher margin software sales and the lower margin Ordos project.
