Date:10/9/2008

Obtains 10 Million RMB Commercial Bank Loan With Interest Payment Subsidy

BEIJING, Oct. 9 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Sinovac Biotech Ltd. (Amex: SVA), a vaccine-focused biotech company in China, announced today that the Beijing Zhongguancun Enterprises Credit Promotion Association at the Zhongguancun Science and Technology Park organized an annual Business Credit Rating program. As part of that program, Sinovac Biotech Co. Ltd.'s ("the Company") credit rating was successfully upgraded to AAzc, the second-highest level, from Azc, the third-highest level of nine levels. This available additional capital ensures the Company's expansion of production scale and satisfies the capital demand of its business development strategy. Sinovac's financial department is in active communication with the Zhongguancun Guarantee Company and increased the amount of credit guarantee. Meanwhile, the department is extending cooperation to other banks. Recently, the Company obtained 10 million RMB guaranteed loan from China Merchants Bank Shangdi Branch, which has a solid reputation in China and internationally.

Sinovac has established good credit with the Haidian Science Park of Zhongguancun Science and Technology Garden Zone and with the Regulatory Committees (or Haidian Park), which will subsidize 40% of the interest payment for the above mentioned bank loan, which is the highest standard in the area.

Mr. Weidong Yin, President and CEO, commented, "As the U.S. financial crisis spreads to the global markets, Sinovac will maintain its various capital raising opportunities through its established track record and reputation built in China. No matter how volatile the global financial market is, we will keep executing our expansion strategy. Both credit rating upgrade and bank loans will ensure capital raising sources for business development. Management is confident in the future of the company."
