LIUZHOU CITY, Guangxi, China, June 1 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China BCT Pharmacy Group, Inc., (OTC Bulletin Board: CNBI), ("China BCT" or the "Company"), a leading pharmaceutical distributor, retail pharmacy, and manufacturer of pharmaceutical products in Guangxi Province, China, today announced the successful acquisition of 11 retail pharmacy stores in Laibin City, Xiangzhou County, further expanding the Company's pharmacy footprint in Guangxi Province.

In May 2010, China BCT acquired 11 retail pharmacy stores in Laibin City for $0.6 million in cash from Laibin Teng Fei Pharmaceutical Limited, a local retail pharmaceutical firm.

The Company estimates average annual sales per store to be approximately $145,000 and anticipates the payback period to be about 3 years. Management expects these newly acquired stores to contribute approximately $1.0 million to China BCT's revenues in 2010.

"We remain confident that we will meet our goal to add a total of 160 pharmacy stores by the end of 2010.
