NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - November 19, 2007) - China Agri-Business, Inc. (OTCBB: CHBU) today announced record financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2007.


Consolidated results for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2007:

--  Third quarter revenues increased 40%, net income up 23% as compared to
    the same period in 2006
--  Earnings Per Share $0.07 for the nine months, as compared to $0.05 for
    nine months 2006.

    per share, during the quarter.

Liping Deng, President and CEO of the Company, stated, "We are pleased to announce our financial results for the third quarter. While the third quarter is usually not as strong as the second quarter due to the ordinary cycle of the agricultural industry, we did continue to increase our presence in the organic applications marketplace. We are particularly focused on establishing a presence in Southern China, where the longer growing season should help reduce the seasonality of our revenues."

Commenting on the remainder of 2007, Mr. Deng said, "We have three new organic applications ready for introduction to the market in the fourth quarter, and we continue to build our sales team. With these tactics underway, we anticipate the Company's growth in revenues and earnings will continue."

China Agri-Business completed its Initial Public Offering on October 17, 2007.
