(“TW”) to its shareholders.

TW’s Filing to HK Company Registry

Tri-way Industries Ltd. is near completion of all requisite documents and documentation pertaining to the allocation of TW ownership and fully paid-up capital (US$340.5 million) to its respective owner-partners, to be filed with the Hong Kong Company Registrar sometime within the next ten (10) days. Upon its filing, Sino Agro Food’s (“SIAF”) 36.6% holding in Tri-way is officially secured.

The HK Company Secretary

Cosmo Corporate Service HK Limited (“Cosmo”) is the secretary service company of TW. Cosmo performs similar functions to those provided by a transfer agent in the U.S., such as those carried out by Broadridge Financial for SIAF.

After having met regulatory conditions/approval for its dividend share distribution, the Company will instruct Cosmo to directly register shares in book-entry form for their list of shareholders with the HK Company Registrar.

Matters related to custodian actions to be taken by beneficiaries acting on behalf of their clients, such as Forsakringsaktiebolaget Avanza Pension, Nordnet Pensionsförsäkring AB, etc.; individual shareholders of TW and relevant items or steps pertaining to them; and the availability of services provided by Cosmo to any shareholder of TW will be forthcoming in later notices from the Company, as warranted.
