China Medical Technologies Announces Concurrent Offerings of $150 Million of Convertible Senior Notes and Purchased ADSs Pursuant to ADS Issuance and Repurchase Agreements
Date:8/11/2008

BEIJING, Aug. 11 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Medical Technologies, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq: CMED) today announced that it intends to offer, subject to market and other conditions, $150.0 million aggregate principal amount of convertible senior notes due 2013 and American Depositary Shares, or ADSs, which are being purchased by affiliates of the underwriters of the notes offering pursuant to ADS issuance and repurchase agreements with the Company. The Company intends to grant to the underwriters of the notes offering an option to purchase up to an additional $22.5 million aggregate principal amount of notes to cover over-allotments.

The Company intends to use the net proceeds of the notes offering, after deducting underwriting discounts and offering expenses, for general corporate purposes and for the acquisitions of businesses, products and technologies that the Company believes will complement its existing business.

In connection with the notes offering, the Company expects to enter into ADS issuance and repurchase agreements with affiliates of the underwriters of the notes and ADS offerings (the "ADS purchasers"), pursuant to which the Company will issue ADSs to the ADS purchasers at a purchase price of $1.00 per ADS, which is equal to the par value of the underlying ordinary shares. The ADS purchasers will be obligated to deliver to the Company an equal number of ADSs on a later date as described below, and, on the day the Company issues the purchased ADSs to the ADS Purchasers, the Company will prepay to the ADS purchasers $1.00 per ADS to repurchase these ADSs to be delivered to the Company in the future. Concurrently with the notes offering, the ADS purchasers will sell the purchased ADSs pursuant to a separate prospectus supplement and accompanying prospectus. The ADS purchasers will receive all of the proceeds from the sale of the purchased ADSs in the ADS offering. The Company will not receive any proceeds from the sale of the purchased ADSs in the ADS offering. The sale of the purchased ADSs is intended to facilitate privately negotiated transactions or short sales by which investors in the notes will hedge their investment in the notes. The closing of the notes offering is contingent upon the closing of the concurrent offering of purchased ADSs that will be initially offered at a fixed price, and the closing of the concurrent offering of purchased ADSs that will be initially offered at a fixed price is contingent upon the closing of the notes offering.

While the ordinary shares underlying the purchased ADSs will be considered issued and outstanding for purposes of Cayman Islands Companies Law, the Company believes that under U.S. GAAP currently in effect, the purchased ADSs will not be considered outstanding for the purpose of computing earnings per ADS because, pursuant to the ADS issuance and repurchase agreements, among other things, upon conversion, repurchase or payment at maturity of all of the notes, the ADS purchasers will be obligated to deliver to the Company a number of ADSs equal to the number of purchased ADSs, unless earlier delivered pursuant to the ADS issuance and repurchase agreements.

Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC and Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated will act as underwriters for the notes offering and the ADS offering.

The notes offering and the ADS offering will be made under the Company's shelf registration statement filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on August 11, 2008. This press release does not constitute an offer to sell, or the solicitation of an offer to buy, securities, and does not constitute an offer, solicitation or sale in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

Copies of the preliminary notes prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus and the preliminary ADS prospectus supplement and the accompanying prospectus may be obtained from Credit Suisse Securities (USA) LLC toll-free at 1-800-221-1037 or by calling Morgan Stanley & Co. Incorporated toll-free at 1-866-718-1649 or emailing prospectus@morganstanley.com or contacting 180 Varick Street, New York, New York 10014, Attention: Prospectus Department.
