Mindray Announces Option Exchange Offer
Date:3/11/2009

SHENZHEN, China, March 11 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Mindray Medical International Limited (NYSE: MR), a leading developer, manufacturer and marketer of medical devices worldwide, today announced that its Board of Directors has authorized an option exchange program for certain options granted under the Mindray Medical International Limited Share Incentive Plan (the "Share Incentive Plan"). This exchange program, which is only available to eligible employees, is expected to provide additional incentive and retention value.

Under the terms of the exchange, participants will be able to tender vested and unvested outstanding options to purchase Class A ordinary shares of Mindray which have an exercise price greater than $24.00 per share in exchange for a lower number of newly granted options. The exercise price of the new options will be the closing price of Mindray common stock on the New York Stock Exchange on the exchange date. Mindray expects the offer to expire on March 15, 2009 and expects to grant the replacement options on March 16, 2009. The option exchange program is designed so that the current fair value of the options surrendered is similar to the fair value of the replacement options, and any additional expenses due to the exchange offer should be minimal.
