China Fire & Security Group announced today that the Special Committee of its Board of Directors has received a non-binding letter from a leading global private equity firm, pursuant to which the PE proposes to acquire all of the outstanding shares of common stock of China Fire in cash at a price which represents a premium over the current stock price. According to the Proposal, the PE is willing to structure the proposed acquisition to allow the existing members of the Company's management to exchange all or part of their equity interests in the Company into equity securities in the post-acquisition company. The Proposal is subject to certain conditions, including, among other things, successful completion of due diligence to the satisfaction of the PE.

Despite the solid fundamentals underlying our fire protection industry and some modest signs of improvement in the iron and steel industry, a recovery has been much slower than we had expected. For the immediate future, we believe our core customers will continue to reactively preserve cash and defer spending, and as such, we view it prudent that we withdraw our business outlook at this time. Having said that, while we await the eventual recovery in the iron & steel vertical, we are committed to expand our competitive advantages and sustain our position as the leading total solution provider of industrial fire protection systems in China.
