China Infrastructure Investment Corporation Reports Fiscal Year End Results

BEIJING--(Marketwire - September 29, 2009) - China Infrastructure Investment Corporation (NASDAQ: CIIC), which operates the Pinglin Expressway in Henan Province in central China, today reported results for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2009.

For the year, the Company reported revenues declined 10.9% to $50,270,277 from $56,424,236 in the prior fiscal year, while net income of $2,209,706 for the year decreased 82.4% from $12,534,789 in the prior fiscal year.

The Company said the lower results primarily were due to reduced toll revenue as a consequence of a decrease in traffic volume on the Pinglin Expressway. The Company noted, in particular, a reduction in coal-related commercial traffic in a recessionary period, and the loss of income from vehicles carrying food items, as the government applied a toll free policy to these vehicles. Additionally, in May 2009, the government removed tolls from certain local trunk roads, which led many short-distance drivers to choose these alternatives. As a consequence of a re-evaluation of future revenue, the Company also reported higher depreciation and amortization costs.

Mr. Li Xipeng, Chairman and CEO of the Company, commented, "While 2009 results were disappointing, we continue to believe that Henan, a key transportation destination and crossroad, and the most populated province in China, will see growing auto travel and transportation of goods as China continues to prosper. Further, awareness of the Expressway and the convenience it offers to users will continue to grow. Additionally, the Company plans to invest in the construction and purchase of additional expressways, thermoelectricity, water supply, sewage treatment facilities and other infrastructure assets in the next few years. In doing so, it intends to seize this historic opportunity of rapid development of infrastructure in China and Henan."
