Sino Agro Food, Inc. Awarded Aromatic Beef Sales Contract, Potential Corporate Revenues up to USD $18M

Mar 28, 2012

GUANGZHOU, China--()--Sino Agro Food, Inc. (OTCBB: SIAF.OB), an emerging integrated, diversified agriculture technology and organic food company with principal operations located throughout the Peoples Republic of China (“PRC”), is pleased to announce that our wholly-owned subsidiary company, Macau Eiji Company Limited, has been awarded a sales contract (the “Contract”) to supply its aromatic beef to a Chinese party engaged in the purchase and sale of cattle throughout the PRC. Based on internal analysis, the Company believes that revenues generated from this Contract could potentially be worth as much as approximately US $18 million, subject to future market cattle prices and demand.

The Contract calls for the delivery of 4,000 head of cattle of Simmental and Charolais breeds. The cattle will weigh between 600kg to 750kg with meat content at 52% or more of DWT (deadweight tonnage) at time of delivery. The first 1,000 head of cattle are to be delivered by December 31, 2012 with the remaining 3,000 head delivered through fiscal year 2013.

Wholesale prices for live cattle are currently averaging $3.94-$4.73/Kg depending on locality (i.e. North or South China). Based on current demand and the above-quoted wholesale prices, the Company believes it could realize revenues of approximately $4.1M - $4.7M USD during Fiscal Year 2012 from the Contract. Barring a downturn in demand and prices, the Company believes it could realize revenues of approximately $12.3M - $14.1M USD during Fiscal Year 2013.

Mr. Solomon Lee, Chief Executive Officer of the Company, stated, "Over the past several months, beef prices have been rising sharply in China. Two months ago the wholesale price for live cattle was between $2.50 and $3.15 per kilogram. Today's prices have risen to an average of approximately USD $3.94-$4.73 per kilogram. We expect this trend to continue and we believe that we could see prices as high as USD $5.92 per kilogram by the end of Fiscal Year 2012. With the rapid rise of the middle class and improved living standards, beef markets in China are accelerating due to a greater demand for beef, especially higher quality grades. Our Aromatic Beef technology provides consumers with a product that meets these demands. We look forward to potentially announcing more beef contracts in the future as we attempt to expand our operations in 2012 with the development of more cattle farms, currently targeting the districts of Enping City and Hunan Linli, and abattoir and boning facilities on a 33,000 m2 block of land adjacent to our Xining SanJiang A-Power’s property, that is expected to be acquired this year. The Company currently has three beef cattle farms in operation located throughout China.”
