China Infrastructure Investment Corporation Sees Pace of Toll Growth Accelerating as Economy Continues to Gradually Improve

BEIJING--(Marketwire - December 29, 2009) - China Infrastructure Investment Corporation (NASDAQ: CIIC), which operates the Pinglin Expressway in Henan Province in central China, said today that it anticipates sequential revenue growth in 2010, spurred by a gradually improving Chinese economy.

As previously reported, in the Company's first quarter ended September 30, 2009, revenues generated from tolls it collected on the Pinglin Expressway were below results in the same period in the prior fiscal year, but approximately $1.09 million or 8.7% higher, compared with the fourth quarter of the prior fiscal year ended June 30, 2009. On a unit basis, the sequential increase was greater than this, as the average daily traffic flow in the first quarter of the current fiscal year of 14,974 was 27% higher than in the preceding fourth quarter of the prior fiscal year.

Sequential Growth in Revenues Expected to Continue

Mr. Li Xipeng, Chairman and CEO of the Company, stated, "Over the remainder of the fiscal year, with continuing gradual improvement in the overall economy anticipated, we see our toll revenues benefitting and advancing at an accelerated pace."

Optimistic About Long Term Growth

"For the longer term," Mr. Li continued, "we have every reason to expect strong revenue growth, with the centrally located Pinglin Expressway now operating at only 30% of its design load, and traffic through Henan Province between the northwest and southeast coastal region of China expected to grow substantially."
