Zhongpin Announces Receipt Of Non-Binding Going Private Proposal From Its Chairman At $13.50 Per Share

4.   Definitive Agreements.

I am prepared to negotiate and finalize definitive agreements (the "Definitive Agreements") providing for the Acquisition and related transactions very promptly. These documents will provide for covenants and conditions typical and appropriate for transactions of this type.

5.   Confidentiality.

I am sure you will agree that it is in all of our interests to proceed in a confidential manner, other than as required by law, until definitive agreements providing for a transaction have been executed or we have terminated our discussions.

6.   Process.

I believe that the Acquisition will provide superior value to the Company's public stockholders. I recognize that the board of directors of the Company will evaluate the Proposal independently before it can make its determination to endorse the Acquisition. Given my involvement in the proposed Acquisition, I also recognize that independent members of the Board will proceed to consider the proposed Acquisition. In considering my offer, you should be aware that I am interested only in acquiring the common stock of the Company that I do not already own, and that I do not intend to sell my stake in the Company to a third party.

7.  Advisors.   

I have retained Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP as my legal counsel in connection with the Proposal and the Acquisition.

8. No Binding Commitment.  

This Proposal does not constitute any binding commitment with respect to the Acquisition or any other transaction.  Any commitment will result only from the execution of Definitive Agreements, and then will be on the terms provided in such documentation.

In closing, I would like to personally express my sincerity to work with the board of directors of the Company to bring this Acquisition to a successful and timely conclusion.  Should you have any questions regarding these matters, please do not hesitate to contact me.
