China XD Plastics Announces Opening of New Production Lines and Capacity Expansion

-Opens New Production Lines in Company's Number 3 Production Base-

HARBIN, China, Dec. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China XD Plastics Company Limited (NASDAQ: CXDC, "China XD Plastics" or the "Company"), one of China's leading companies engaged in the development, manufacture, and sale of modified plastics primarily for automotive applications, today announced the successful opening of its new production lines as part of the Company's previously announced capacity expansion plan.

The event was marked by an official opening ceremony at the Company's newly developed production facilities in Harbin, China on December 3, 2012. The ceremony included remarks from the Company's senior management, a tour of its production facilities, and the official launch of the new production lines by Mr. Jie Han, Chairman and CEO of China XD Plastics.

Based on the Company's long-term development strategy, the new production lines will be utilized primarily for the manufacture of higher value-added modified plastics products. Once fully ramped up, the lines will increase the Company's total production capacity by 135,000 metric tons to 390,000 metric tons per annum. The additional capacity will start to contribute to the Company's production capacity during the first quarter of 2013.

The new production lines are stationed in the Company's three newly-built plants within the Company's Number 3 production base in Harbin. As part of the development of the new production lines, the Company also completed the purchase of over 60 sets of specialized research and development equipment to enhance its capability of higher value-added product development. The production expansion and addition of research and development equipment will facilitate China XD Plastics to meet the growing demand for higher value-added modified plastic products and further diversify the Company's leading product portfolio.  

Mr. Jie Han said: "Today marks another important milestone in the Company's development, and along with our continuing investments in research and development, this new capacity is a significant part of our long-term growth strategy. The higher value-added and higher margin products manufactured on these new production lines will allow us to better accommodate the growing demand for our products and further diversify our modified plastics product portfolio. Going forward, we will continue to make strategic investments that strengthen our market-leading position and help us deliver long-term value to our shareholders."
