KHD Humboldt Wedag International Ltd. Completes US$257 Million Credit Facility

11/30/2006
      - Also Sells Its Banking Subsidiary and Buys Back 790,000 Shares -

HONG KONG, Nov. 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- KHD Humboldt Wedag International Ltd. ("KHD") (Nasdaq: KHDH) announces that it has obtained a US$257 million (EUR195 million) credit facility.

The credit facility was syndicated with the lead arranger, Raiffeisen Zentralbank Osterreich AG, Vienna, Austria. With this facility, KHD has the financial capacity to provide the guarantees and bonds required to capitalize on market dynamics and to continue with its growth plans.

Jim Busche, CEO of KHD, commented, "This is a major building block for our future. It was only two years ago that the company's credit facility amount was limited. We are extremely pleased as it allows us to pursue projects in all of our international markets. We thank all of the participating banks for their support, especially Raiffeisen Zentralbank Osterreich AG and its team."

KHD also announces the continuing monetization of its non-core assets. KHD has sold its banking subsidiary to Mass Financial Corp. ("Mass"), KHD's former subsidiary that was distributed to its shareholders in January, 2006. The sale price is at KHD's carrying value and will require certain regulatory approvals.

In addition, we repurchased, as part of the sale of the Bank, from Mass 790,000 of our common shares of KHD at the initial price of $34.88 a share, and will retire them, which has reduced our shares outstanding by 5.2 percent.

Michael Smith, Chairman of KHD, stated, "We are working to fulfill our goal of divesting ourselves of the legacy assets and having KHD with no significant amount of fixed assets. This business model will allow KHD to grow without substantial capital requirements."
