China Precision Steel Files Universal Shelf Registration Statement

SHANGHAI, China, Dec. 31 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China Precision Steel, Inc. (NASDAQ:CPSL) ("China Precision Steel" or the "Company"), a niche precision steel processing company principally engaged in producing and selling high precision cold-rolled steel products, today announced that it has filed a universal shelf registration statement on Form S-3 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"), on December 30, 2008. The shelf registration, when declared effective, will permit China Precision Steel to issue up to an aggregate of $40 million in securities.

The shelf registration provides the Company with flexibility to publicly offer and sell securities from time to time, in one or more separate offerings or other transactions, with size, price and terms to be determined at the time of issuance, and at times when the Company believes that market conditions make such an offering attractive. The Company does not have any commitments or current intentions to sell securities under the registration statement at this time.

"We have no current plans to raise additional capital," commented Dr. Wo Hing Li, China Precision Steel's Chairman and CEO, "but we believe that it is prudent to have a shelf registration statement in place to ensure financing flexibility should the need arise."

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy, nor shall there be any sale of any securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities laws of any such jurisdiction. Any offering may be made only by means of the prospectus and a related prospectus supplement.
