Tibet Pharmaceuticals, Inc. Announces Receipt Of Non-Binding "Going Private" Proposal At $3.00 Per Share

SHANGRI-LA COUNTY, China, March 1, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Tibet Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: TBET), an emerging specialty pharmaceutical company engaged in the development, manufacturing and marketing of traditional Tibetan medicine in China, today announced that its Board of Directors has received a non-binding proposal letter from its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Hong Yu ("Mr. Yu"), for Mr. Yu to acquire all of the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock not currently owned by Mr. Yu, in a going private transaction for $3.00 per share in cash subject to certain conditions. According to the proposal letter, the acquisition is intended to be financed with a combination of debt and equity capital to be secured by Mr. Yu. Mr. Yu currently beneficially owns approximately 22.1% of TBET's common stock. A copy of the text of Mr. Yu's proposal letter is set forth at the end of this press release.

TBET's Board of Directors has formed a special committee consisting solely of independent directors (the "Special Committee") to consider, among other things, any proposal made by Mr. Yu, and the Special Committee will retain an independent counsel as its legal advisor to assist the Special Committee in its work. There can be no assurance that any definitive offer will be made, that any agreement will be executed or that a transaction with Mr. Yu or any other transaction will be approved or consummated. The Company does not intend to disclose developments regarding these matters unless and until its Board of Directors determines there is a need to update the market.

Board of DirectorsTibet Pharmaceuticals, Inc.Room 1701, 17th FloorWanchai, Hong Kong

Dear Sirs:

I, Hong Yu, am pleased to submit this preliminary non-binding proposal (the "Proposal") to acquire the outstanding ordinary shares of Tibet Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (the "Company") that are not currently owned by myself in a going-private transaction (the "Acquisition"). The terms and conditions of the Proposal on which I contemplate to pursue the Acquisition are set forth below:

1. Purchase Price. The purchase consideration payable for each ordinary share of the Company (other than those held by myself) will be the amount of $3.00 per share in cash, which represents a premium of 317% to the Company's closing price on February 26, 2012 and a premium of 141% to the volume-weighted average closing price during the last 30 trading days. I believe that the proposed purchase price provides a very attractive and beneficial alternative to the Company's shareholders.

2. Financing. It is currently expected that the Acquisition will be primarily financed with my own funds and related sources but may be supplemented by possible debt financing. If necessary, I would enter into discussions and negotiations, and possibly agreements, with potential sources of debt financing. At this point in time, there is no arrangement with any such potential source of debt financing in relation to the Proposal, and I do not propose to make any agreement of exclusivity prior to reaching transaction terms approved by the Board of Directors.
