Panda Ethanol's Hereford, Texas Subsidiary Files Voluntary Chapter 11
Date:1/23/2009

DALLAS, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Panda Ethanol Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: PDAE) today announced that its Hereford Biofuels subsidiary has filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas. The company intends to sell its major asset, the Hereford ethanol refinery, pursuant to a Section 363 sale process approved by the bankruptcy court. The bankruptcy filing does not include Panda Ethanol, the parent company of the Hereford subsidiary, and was precipitated by the refusal of one of the project's leading banks to fund its loans, which the company believes is a breach of the bank's financial commitment.

After repeated conversations with the syndicate and an unsuccessful attempt to secure debtor-in-possession financing, the Hereford subsidiary's management concluded that the only prudent option available was to put the facility up for sale through a Section 363 sale process.

"Over the past many months, we have worked diligently to successfully overcome a number of challenges," said Darol Lindloff, chief executive officer of Panda Ethanol, "including continued construction delays; the termination of the general contractor, Lurgi, for cause; and the assumption of responsibilities for managing the remaining construction at the site. We retired a $1.6 million loan, successfully negotiated the granting of waivers that would extend construction deadlines to February 28, and obtained $2.5 million in new working capital. We also restructured the funding arrangements for
