Date:2/21/2012

NEWARK, N.J., Feb. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- American Oriental Bioengineering, Inc. (NYSE: AOB) (the "Company") today announced that on January 31, 2012, its board of directors adopted resolutions approving a reverse stock split (the "Reverse Split") of the outstanding shares of the Company's common stock ("Common Stock") at a ratio of one (1) share for every two (2) shares outstanding, so that every two (2) outstanding shares of Common Stock before the Reverse Split shall represent one (1) share of Common Stock after the Reverse Split.

Pursuant to the Company's Amended Articles of Incorporation filed with the Nevada Secretary of State, the maximum number of shares of Common Stock that the Company is authorized to issue will also be reduced from 150,000,000 to 75,000,000.  The Reverse Split will be effected without obtaining shareholder approval pursuant to Nevada law.  The effective date of the Reverse Split with the Nevada Secretary of State is set for Friday, February 24, 2012.  Accordingly, the New York Stock Exchange has set the effective date of the Reverse Split for Monday, February 27, 2012. The Reverse Split is part of the Company's strategy to maintain the listing of its shares on the New York Stock Exchange.

Currently, the Company has approximately 78,503,381 shares of Common Stock outstanding. After the Reverse Split, the Company would have approximately 39,251,867 shares outstanding.  Each stockholder's percentage ownership interest in the Company and proportional voting power will remain unchanged after the Reverse Split except for minor changes and adjustments resulting from rounding of fractional interests.  The rights and privileges of the holders of Common Stock shall be substantially unaffected by the Reverse Split.
