Longwei Petroleum Provides Shareholder Update

After considering the situation thoroughly and consulting with the Company's legal counsel, the board of directors authorized this decision in the best interest of the Company and its shareholders. The Warrants have been extended under the same terms and conditions until November 29, 2012.

"We believe the Warrant proceeds, if exercised, will be beneficial to the Company as a means to grow our Huajie inventory level more quickly. Based on our inventory turnover and profit margin, we view this as a potentially accretive event for our shareholders," said Michael Toups, Chief Financial Officer of Longwei. "Our trading price has been hovering around the Warrant strike price of $2.255 for the past week. Since the Warrants are close to being 'in-the-money,' we believe a short-term extension, given the unforeseen circumstances, actually reflects favorably on our confidence in the future stock price to trade higher than the current level."

The Company recently reported revenues of US $510.6 million and net income of US $65.1 million for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2012. At the June 30, 2012 fiscal year-end, the Company reported total assets of US $342.3 million and a book value per share of $3.31.

Longwei expects year-over-year revenue growth of approximately 26.6% to $646.3 million, and net income growth of approximately 24.2% to $77.6 million, adjusted for the warrant derivative liability, for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2013. The growth is driven primarily by the ramp-up of the Huajie facility and organic growth at the Company's two existing facilities.
