Chindex International, Inc. Announces CDC Contract Signing

German KfW Development Bank-financed Projects Will Bring EUR10.8 Million in


BETHESDA, Md., July 11 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Chindex International, Inc. (Nasdaq: CHDX), an independent American provider of international healthcare services and Western healthcare products in the People's Republic of China, today announced that it has signed two contracts for the supply of EUR10.8 million of laboratory and hospital products to Centers for Disease Control in China's Gansu and Inner Mongolia provinces. The projects were awarded to Chindex's German subsidiary, Chindex China-Export GmbH, in late January, and the contracts were signed on Monday in a ceremony in Beijing attended by officials from the Chinese National Development and Reform Commission, Ministry of Finance, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Commerce, the German Embassy, and the German KfW Development Bank.

Speaking at the ceremony after signing the contracts, Chindex CEO Roberta Lipson stated, ''We are privileged to have the opportunity to work with the various Chinese Government entities represented here to undertake major upgrades to the Centers for Disease Control in Gansu and Inner Mongolia provinces. The execution of this program, made possible by the German Government through its KfW Development Bank, is very complex and demands the kind of specific loan and contract execution expertise that Chindex has developed. Now that the contracts have been finalized, we look forward to delivering the much-needed products as soon as possible."

Signing on behalf of the Chinese buyer, Minmetals International Tendering Co., Ltd., was General Manager Long Yu, who commented, ''We have worked with Chindex to procure medical equipment on many prior projects, and are pleased to be cooperating with Chindex again on this important project to bring much-needed equipment to China's CDCs. Chindex is a well-respected supplier and brings to this partnership more than 10 years of experience in executing government loan projects. We are confident that these contracts will be successful and mutually beneficial for all parties involved.''

Shipments under these contracts are expected to begin before the end of the calendar year after certain administrative matters are concluded. Chindex is involved in bidding and negotiating several other government-sponsored loan projects, and the Company continues to look to the growth of these programs as a primary driver of renewed profitability in its medical products business.
