SURREY, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 3, 2009) - Sungro Minerals Inc. (OTCBB:SUGO) (the "Company") announced today that following receipt of FINRA approval, the Company has effected the five-for-one forward stock split previously announced on June 26, 2009. In connection with the forward split, the Company's stock symbol has commenced trading under the new symbol "SUGO.OB" on the OTC Bulletin Board. The record date for the forward split is the close of business on July 6, 2009.

The forward split resulted in the increase in the number of issued and outstanding shares of common stock of the Company on the basis of five new shares for every one old share. As a result, the Company currently has approximately 48,750,000 issued and outstanding shares of common stock.

Following the effectiveness of the forward split, the new shares will be issued by the Company's transfer agent when certificates are physically surrendered, by replacing each share surrendered with five new shares, or if part of the DTC System, shares will be automatically adjusted for on the same basis.

Voluntary Request for Temporary Trading Halt

Any agreement between the parties will be subject to completion of a definitive agreement between the parties with customary representations and warranties and satisfactory completion of both parties' due diligence review. There is no assurance that the parties will reach a definitive agreement regarding the proposed transaction as planned or at all.
