Fushi Copperweld Completes "Going Private" Transaction





BEIJING, Dec. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Fushi Copperweld, Inc. ("Fushi" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: FSIN) announced today the completion of the transaction contemplated by the Agreement and Plan of Merger dated as of June 28, 2012 (the "Merger Agreement"), among the Company, Green Dynasty Limited ("Green Dynasty"), Green Dynasty Acquisition, Inc. ("Merger Sub"), and Green Dynasty Holdings Limited, pursuant to which the Company became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Green Dynasty, an entity affiliated with Mr. Li Fu, the Company's Chairman and Co-Chief Executive Officer.

Fushi's stockholders are entitled to receive $9.50 in cash for each share of Fushi common stock that they held immediately prior to the effective time of the merger. Holders of stock certificates will receive letters of transmittal with instructions on how to deliver their shares of common stock to the paying agent. Stockholders who held shares of Fushi common stock through a bank or broker will not have to take any action to receive cash for their shares, as such payments will be handled by the bank or broker.

As a result of the merger, Fushi is now a privately-held company. As previously announced, trading of the Company's common stock on the NASDAQ Global Select Market will be suspended immediately prior to the opening of trading on December 27, 2012 and NASDAQ has filed a notification of removal of listing and registration on Form 25 with the Securities and Exchange Commission ("SEC") with respect to Fushi's common stock. The Company intends to deregister its common stock and to suspend its reporting obligations under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, by promptly filing a Form 15 with the SEC.
