"We are honored to see that Atlantis Investment shares the same vision as we do with China's burgeoning healthcare industry and such a strategic investor-ship will not only strengthen Golden Meditech shareholders base, but also be beneficial to our long-term growth," said Mr. KAM.

"To act in the best interest of our shareholders, Golden Meditech has always been striving to maximize shareholders value.

The net proceeds raised will be used for general working capital, and to fund future investment opportunities.

Going forward, Golden Meditech will continue its pursuit of becoming China's leading integrated medical group through organic growth, acquisitions and strategic investments.
