China New Borun Secures Corn Supply At Locked-in Prices

SHOUGUANG, China, March 26, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China New Borun Corporation (NYSE: BORN; "Borun" or the "Company"), a leading producer and distributor of corn-based edible alcohol in China, today announced that it has completed the pre-purchase of sufficient corn at locked-in prices to cover its production requirements during the coming non-harvest season.

During the recent harvest season, the Company reserved sufficient corn to be used for later production in the non-harvest season through corn sourcing arrangements with local granaries. As a result, the Company has secured 505,000 tons of corn stored at third-party granaries, and it is estimated that all of Borun's 2012 production plans can be sufficiently fulfilled with the corn already on hand.

Mr. Jinmiao Wang, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Borun, remarked, "Having further enhanced our corn purchase and storage capability, we are confident that Borun is well-positioned to use our sourcing advantage to capture more business opportunities in the future. Our ability to lock in attractive prices during the peak harvest season not only provides us with higher cost visibility but also buffers us from potential higher inflation. Our strong relationships with local granaries and our strategic locations in the corn producing regions have helped us achieve this. Together with our successful pre-sales for 2012, we are excited and confident that our assured supply and solid cost visibility will help us continue to operate efficiently and prosper in a cost-rising environment."
