CD International Enterprises Completes Acquisition Of Golden Trust And Lingshi Magnesium Operations As Shareholders Approve Acquisition And New Corporate Name

DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., March 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- CD International Enterprises, Inc. ("CD International") (NASDAQ: CDII), a U.S. based company that produces, sources, and distributes industrial commodities in China and the Americas and provides cross border corporate advisory services, announced today the results of a special shareholder meeting held on February 29, 2012.  Following the February 29, 2012 special meeting of shareholders approving the issuance of our common stock with approximately 96% of the votes cast, CD International completed the acquisition of 100% of Golden Trust Magnesium Industry Co., Ltd. "Golden Trust" and 80% of Lingshi Xinghai Magnesium Industry Co., Ltd. "Lingshi Magnesium" for an aggregate of $26.7 million payable by a combination of $6.5 million in cash or assignment of intercompany loans, $15.5 million in shares of our common stock, and $4.7 million by way of transferring our interest in our Excel Rise Technology Co., Ltd. subsidiary. In addition, our shareholders approved an amendment to our articles of incorporation to change our corporate name from China Direct Industries, Inc. to CD International Enterprises, Inc.

Golden Trust and Lingshi Magnesium are both engaged in the production of pure magnesium ingots.  CD International adds approximately 20,000 metric tons of annual production capacity from Golden Trust and 12,000 metric tons of annual production capacity from Lingshi Magnesium, bringing our total magnesium production capacity to approximately 90,000 metric tons, making us one of the largest magnesium producers in the world. In conjunction with the acquisition of Golden Trust and Lingshi Magnesium, we entered into a Management Agreement with Yuwei Huang and Kong Tung, members of our Board of Directors, to consolidate and manage the business operations for all of our magnesium production facilities.     

Commenting on the results of the special shareholder meeting, Dr. James Wang, Chairman and CEO of CD International, stated "We are pleased that our shareholders have overwhelmingly voted to allow us to complete the acquisitions as well as our new corporate name to reflect our business direction.  With the addition of Golden Trust and Lingshi Magnesium, we expect to benefit from a more streamlined organization, improving our overall cost structure and positioning our company to become the industry leader in pure magnesium production and distribution.  We expect to see a strong improvement in performance out of this segment in the coming quarters as we generate significantly larger sales opportunities, ramp revenue and improve cash flow and profitability for fiscal 2012 and beyond."
