KHD Humboldt Wedag International Distributes Its Financial Assets to Shareholders

01/25/2010

HONG KONG, Jan. 25 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- KHD Humboldt Wedag International Ltd ("KHD") (Nasdaq: KHDH) announces that it will distribute to its shareholders the shares of Mass Financial Corp. ("Mass Financial"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of KHD, which has operated as the international merchant banking operation and represents certain financial services assets of KHD. KHD shareholders will receive one share of Mass Financial common stock for each share held of KHD common stock.

There will be no tax cost to United States and Canadian shareholders as a result of the distribution and there will be no tax effect on either KHD or Mass Financial. The distribution will not substantially change the net worth or earnings of KHD for the year 2005 or the net worth of KHD going forward.

Mass Financial intends to focus exclusively on the growth and development of the financial services, commodities trading and merchant banking business, and it will be seeking an international listing for its shares.

Commenting, Michael Smith, President of KHD, said, "We are pleased to announce the distribution of our financial service assets to our shareholders. This will allow KHD to concentrate on the growth of our industrial and engineering services with technologies for cement production and coal and minerals processing, while giving the benefits of our financial services to our shareholders."

The financial services business of Mass Financial requires substantially less capital than has been deployed in the past and new capital required for Mass Financial will come from employees and/or a placement of Mass Financial securities. KHD will provide a limited amount of capital by the exchange of certain assets for retractable preferred shares of Mass Financial. The assets will be sold to Mass Financial at fair market value. The value of those assets and the intrinsic value of the preferred shares will be determined by an independent valuation, to be completed within 90 days after the distribution.

KHD and Mass Financial will continue to assist in the development of both companies and provide services to each other. Certain financial services assets of KHD, which include a passive royalty from an iron ore mine and some banking assets, will not be part of the distribution. Mass Financial will manage certain assets for KHD.

The distribution will enable investors to evaluate the financial performance, strategies and other attributes of KHD and Mass Financial in comparison to companies within their respective industries. The distribution will further allow the management of each company to focus their attention and resources on the respective business of each company.

In order to be entitled to receive common shares of Mass Financial in the distribution, KHD shareholders must have been a shareholder at the close of business on the record date of January 31, 2006.

KHD mailed an information statement regarding Mass Financial to all shareholders of KHD entitled to receive common shares of Mass Financial in the distribution on or about January 25, 2006.
