Sangui BioTech International, Inc., Reports Sales Increase, Continued Losses
Date:4/8/2008

Wolfgang Barnikol Resigns From Executive Positions

WITTEN, Germany, April 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sangui BioTech International, Inc. (OTC: SGBI), published its financial statements for its fiscal year ended June 30, 2006, on April 3, 2008. According to the report on form 10-KSB as filed with the SEC the company almost tripled its sales of cosmetics and wound management products, although from a low level. In FY 2006, Sangui yielded sales of approximately USD 137,000 and a Gross Profit of approximately USD 19,000. Due to the ongoing cost containment program operating expenses were down 25% to approximately USD 758,000. The company reports a net loss for the year of approximately USD 743,000. The resulting accumulated deficit amounts to approximately USD 21.8 million. Total shareholders' deficit as of June 30, 2006 stands at approximately USD 384,000. Net cash used in operating activities of approximately USD 283,000 was partially offset by cash inflows from financing activities in the amount of approximately USD 235,000.

According to the 10-KSB report these conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern. In order for the Company to continue its operations at its existing levels, the Company will require significant additional funds. Therefore, the Company is dependent on funds raised through equity or debt offerings.

Preliminary unaudited figures for Sangui's fiscal year ended June 30, 2007, indicate that Sangui yielded sales in this period of approximately USD 373,000. An increase in operating expenses which is attributable to increased marketing and sales efforts is the main factor for the resulting net loss of approximately USD 704,000. The company strives to file its pending quarterly and annual reports for its 2007 and 2008 fiscal years over the next couple of months.

Cornerstones of Sangui's current business include sales of cosmetics and wound management products through different distribution partners in Germany and abroad. Sales in several Arab countries are subject to their registration in the respective countries. Sangui is not involved in these registration procedures and has no influence on them. At present, there is no reliable basis to predict when sales will start and which volumes may be generated. Negotiations about raising a substantial mezzanine loan were now discontinued as conditions appeared to be unfavorable for the company. Further business opportunities are largely dependent on the successful registration of Sangui's Hemospray wound spray. The company's current plans anticipate that the registration for sales in the European Union may be obtained in the course of calendar year 2008.

The company currently has two employees as well as consulting agreements with five persons in charge of management and development acitivities. In the course of the 2007 calendar year several European investors provided cash inflows to the company of more than EUR 0.6 million.
