GLG Life Tech Corporation -- Transition To US GAAP

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 14, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- GLG Life Tech Corporation (Nasdaq:GLGL) (TSX:GLG) ("GLG" or the "Company"), the vertically-integrated leader in the production of high quality stevia, confirms that in accordance with its previous announcements, it has commenced reporting under US GAAP as of January 1, 2011.

The Accounting Standards Board of the Canadian Institute of Chartered Accountants requires all publicly accountable enterprises to report under International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") for the years beginning on or after January 1, 2011. However, National Instrument 52-107 – Acceptable Accounting Principles, Auditing Standards and Reporting Currency allows "SEC issuers", such as GLG, to file with Canadian securities regulators financial statements prepared in accordance with US GAAP. As such, the Company has decided that it will not report under IFRS but will instead report under US GAAP as of January 1, 2011.

Accordingly, the Company confirms that the financial guidance set out in its news release of February 1, 2011 was prepared in accordance with US GAAP.
