DIAS Holding Sees Inevitable Recovery in Its World Market Revenues as Chinese Automotive Industry Continues to Experience Rapid Growth -- Comments on Quarterly Report

ALLEN PARK, MI--(Marketwire - August 27, 2009) - DIAS Holding, Inc. (OTCBB: DSHL), owner of Asia Forging Supply (AFS), which has a decade long record of success as a one-stop supplier for the automotive and other industries, today said it expected to see an "inevitable recovery" in world market revenues to near "pre-automotive market crash levels" as its last quarterly report has demonstrated a quarter on quarter improvement in total sales. DIAS Holding's sales topped $14.4 million in 2008 before turmoil in the world auto sector caused the company to experience what it now believes was a temporary slowdown in total revenues.

DIAS Holding's subsidiary, AFS, manages outsourced procurement of finished and semi-finished components and sub-assemblies from China and elsewhere in Asia. Its Detroit International Auto Salon subsidiary, in the heart of North America's auto industry, allows Chinese and other Asian companies to display capabilities and to quote manufacturing orders to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the US.

Dias noted its most recent quarter has demonstrated a quarter on quarter improvement in revenues and illustrated growth in sales from new product releases to existing customers. The company anticipates the US Government's "Cash for Clunkers Program" has added new requirements for OEMs to restock to meet desirable inventory levels at dealerships in the US auto market.

Eric Huang, Chairman and CEO of Dias Holding, Inc., stated, "We are seeing an influx of new companies with requests for quotes, which are quickly developing into expanded opportunities for DIAS Holding to meet the demand generated by what appears at this stage to be a rapid market recovery. We are also experiencing the opportunity to quote on new projects with existing customers that appear to be very interested in BEST COST COUNTRIES and the ever increasing new capabilities being developed by the Asian Auto Supply Manufacturing Sector."

Mr. Huang added, "With predicted annual sales for the Chinese Automotive Industry of $350 billion in the year 2015, DIAS is in an unparalleled position to facilitate business relationships which will strengthen our import / export opportunities to substantiate and provide support for what are increasingly demanding global automotive industry requirements."
