(NYSE: NED) ("Noah" or "the Company"), a leading provider of education services in China, announced today that, it has accepted the resignation of Mr. Jerry He as its Chief Executive Officer. Jerry's decision to resign from Noah is due to personal reasons and will be effective January 1, 2012.

Beginning as executive vice president in 2009, and continuing through periods of the Company's structural changes and economic crisis, Jerry has been integral in creating an education service platform poised for continued growth. Looking ahead, I believe that the recent changes that we have made to the Company's strategy, management and operational structure have put us in an excellent position to move forward. I am confident that with the strong team that we already have in place, allied to the planned senior recruitment, we will continue to achieve our goals of returning to profitable growth in 2012. I would also like to take this opportunity to wish Jerry every success in his future endeavors."
