PRNewswire
Dec 23, 2008

TAIAN CITY, China, Dec. 23 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Biologic Products, Inc. (OTC: CBPO) (BULLETIN BOARD: CBPO) ("China Biologic" or the "Company"), one of the leading plasma-based pharmaceutical companies in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today announced that the Company made its first entry into the international market with a sales agreement to ship $1.6 million worth of its products to be sold under its own brand to one of the largest authorized biopharmaceutical distributors in India.

China Biologic has received sales orders on all the products that have been registered under the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization ("CDSCO"), the drug control administration in India. Those registered products include Human Hepatitis B Immunoglobulin 100IU/200IU and Human Immunoglobulin (ph4) for IV Injection (IVIG) 2.5gm/5.0gm. The first shipment order of $0.25 million has been delivered, and the Company expects to complete the rest of the sales order before January 31, 2009.

In an effort to expand into the international market, the Company has established its own international sales department focused on applying for product registration and obtaining permission to sell China Biologic's products under its own brand in other countries. Recently, the Company has successfully obtained product registration and has delivered the first sample order of Human Rabies Immunoglobulin to an authorized biopharmaceutical distributor in Macao.

"We are pleased to announce our entry into the international market where the quality of our products has been recognized. The international market is an even more attractive market than the PRC for our long term growth strategy as our products can command higher selling prices, thereby increasing our profit margins," said Mr. Chao Ming Zhao, CEO of China Biologic Products. "We remain optimistic on our outlook for continued growth in revenue and net income for 2009 aided in part by development of our international business."
