This morning, China Direct Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ: CDII) announced financial outlook for its fiscal 2010 year ending September 30, 2010. The company is a U.S. owned holding company operating in China in two core business segments, pure magnesium production and distribution of basic materials.

As a result of improved visibility in the operations of its subsidiaries in China, coupled with continued price stabilization and improvement in demand in its magnesium segment, management has decided to reinitiate providing an annual financial outlook. Management sees improvement across all its business areas resulting in revenues for the full fiscal year of 2010 ranging between $130 and $150 million with net income ranging from $8 to $10 million. This guidance is predicated on management's believe that magnesium prices and demand will continue to gradually improve in the fiscal year. Management also believes its consulting operations will improve significantly as global markets continue to strengthen for small to medium sized Chinese entities.

Commenting on its outlook, Dr. James Wang, Chairman and CEO of China Direct Industries, Inc. stated, "We have navigated the company through unprecedented difficulties and have worked diligently to remain in a solid financial position with operations capable of resuming growth when markets improved.
