NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 6, 2006--Bodisen Biotech, Inc., (AMEX:BBC, London AIM:BODI, website: /), the first China based environmentally friendly bio fertilizer company listed on a US stock exchange, announced the successful completion of financing and dual listing of its US shares on the London Stock Exchange AIM market.

Bodisen's successful dual listing and capital raise was advised by UK investment bank and Nominated Advisor Charles Stanley, reporting accountant Deloitte & Touche, global law firms Reed Smith and Jones Day, and Bodisen's advisors in the US and China - Wall Street firm New York Global Group and its Beijing based China subsidiary.

According to Charles Stanley, UK institutional investors showed strong interest in Bodisen's offering by oversubscribing for the offering several times. The Company's shares were placed with a limited number of international institutional investors outside the United States. Bodisen is the largest China based company listed on the London Stock Exchange AIM market.

Ms. Karen Qiong Wang, chief executive officer of Bodisen commented, "In our news release dated July 19, 2005, Bodisen announced its endeavor to seek dual listing of shares in London. The goal was to raise growth capital, expand our institutional shareholder base and potentially increase our product distribution to international markets. Since our listing on the American Stock Exchange in August 2005, we have experienced greater liquidity as well as strong institutional interest from global fund managers. In addition, due to our increased visibility, Bodisen has received many requests from US, European and Asian agricultural product companies wishing to potentially become Bodisen's product distributors for their local markets. While Bodisen continues to explore ongoing strategic discussions while experiencing strong sales and earnings growth in our core markets in China, Bodisen must be able to increase manufacturing and supply capabilities to satisfy overwhelming product demand from Chinese farmers. Bodisen branded products stand for high quality and higher crop yields, at similar costs to traditional chemical fertilizers. Bodisen's products will fundamentally change Chinese farmers' fertilizer use behavior from chemical fertilizers to natural fertilizers like ours. We are taking market share away from chemical fertilizer companies, including global industry players who have much longer presence in the Chinese market."

Ms. Wang concluded," Bodisen is dedicated to serving the best interest of our shareholders through solid revenue and earnings growth. During the process of our share placement in London, we were pleased that the entire financing was completed with a limited number of well known large institutional funds with a long-term investment focus. The financing was overwhelmingly received in London with strong institutional demand as evidenced in the total buy order interest. The total number of new shares offered is relatively small while the benefits from increased share liquidity could be significant."

In January 2006, Forbes Magazine ranked Bodisen the 16th fastest growing company in China.
