SGZI to Acquire 90% Stake of Two Chinese Coal Mines Companies

WALNUT, CA and HARBIN, CHINA--(Marketwire - January 7, 2008) - Songzai International Holding Group, Inc. (OTCBB: SGZI), a coal producer and coal reseller based in China, announces today the signing of a definitive agreement on December 31, 2007, to acquire a 90% equity stake in each of two Chinese coal mining companies: Heilongjiang Xing An Group Hong Yuan Coal Mining Co., Ltd. ("Hong Yuan") and Heilongjiang Xing An Group Sheng Yu Ming Co., Ltd. ("Sheng Yu"). The current owners of Hong Yuan and Sheng Yu will hold the remaining 10% equity of each company in trust for Songzai. The acquisition, which is expected to close at the end of January 2008, is intended to increase both Songzai's annual production capability and coal reserve. Songzai will pay US$30 million and issue 80 million shares of its common stock to the current shareholders of Hong Yuan and Sheng Yu for the acquisition. The 60% of the cash portion of the acquisition cost will be payable 6 months after the transaction closes and the balance on the first anniversary of the closing, provided that the entire balance will be due immediately if Songzai receives financing in excess of US$30,000,000.

"We estimate that the acquisition of both Hong Yuan and Sheng Yu will push our total coal reserve above 23 million tons, which is crucial for the future growth of the company and will give us a strong presence in China's coal market," commented Hongjun Li, President of Songzai.

More information about the proposed transaction and a copy of the acquisition agreement may be found in Songzai's Current Report on Form 8-K to be filed with the SEC on January 7, 2008.
