Market News First Issues the Full Analyst Report on Dragon International Group Corp. on MN1.com

DALLAS, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 12, 2006 -- Market News First has issued a full analyst report on Dragon International Group Corp. (OTCBB: DRGG) with a buy rating by Michael A. Willingham.

Here are some excerpts from the report. Log on to www.MN1.com for the complete analyst report.

    INVESTMENT HIGHLIGHTS
--  DRGG is a leader in China Mainland in the manufacturing and
    distributing of packaging materials and specialty paper products.
--  The products produced by DRGG span many segments of business in China
    such as cigarettes, cosmetics, alcohol, and pharmaceuticals, which all need
    to be packaged with materials supplied by companies like Dragon
    International.
--  DRGG operates in China through one wholly owned subsidiary, Anxin,
    which itself is the head of four separate divisions including Paper
    Products, Special Paper Products, Paper Manufacturing, and a Research &
    Development Center.
--  The company is a major distributor of products manufactured by
    industry behemoths International Paper and Asia Pulp & Paper Company.
--  Since going public in late 2004, DRGG has been keen on consolidating
    interests in the industry to enable a strong grip on the industry from many
    angles.
    
In summary, DRGG has many connections in the industry and has a renewed focus on translating its top line growth into profitability for the shareholders. By cutting costs and continuing to look for cheaper supply lines, the company will soon be back to net profitability. Add to this a move into segments of the market with built-in higher margins and you've got a powerhouse in DRGG. Currently generating revenues of near $18,000,000 with two straight years of 50% increases makes for a strong candidate for price appreciation.

I have looked at some of the larger and well-known names in this industry and compiled some metrics compared to DRGG. They are as follows:

Kimbery Clark, International Paper, and Avery Dennision are some of the largest companies in the industry and as such their growth rates aren't all that great. In the world of investing based upon technicals, the estimated growth rate is the great equilizer. In this scenario, DRGG expects growth in profitablility of 100% to 120% while the big three shown above range from 4.27% to 11.04%. Driven by some of the metrics above, I've calculated some possible pricing scenarios for DRGG detailed below.

Examining the Forward Price-to-Earnings model, the Avg of 3 shows 15.75x while DRGG shows only 3.4X. Applying the Avg of 3 figure to DRGG and assuming the stock is currently deserving of a higher ratio, the price should be closer to $0.75. Then looking at the Price-to-Book ratio for Avg of 3 is 3.64 and DRGG is 1.7, the same philosophy yields a valuation for DRGG of $0.35. Finally, using the Price-to-Earnings-to-Growth figures the wheels come of a little. Avg of 3 shows 2.53x as the PEG and DRGG shows only 0.0283 due to the high expected growth rate from the company management. Applying the same math a fair value of DRGG is calculated to be $14.54 per share.
