NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 20, 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, and dually listed in London, announced today that on March 15, 2006, the Company completed financing of $5,322,506 by issuing 380,179 restricted shares of common stock of the Company at $14.00 per share to institutional investors in a private placement pursuant to Regulation S. Issuance of these new shares are subject to approval by the American Stock Exchange and admission to the London AIM market. The proceeds from this financing will be used to fulfill repayment obligations of a $5 million short term note that the Company entered in December 2005 which was used to fund raw materials purchases. The issuance of these additional shares represents less than $0.01 per share in earnings dilution.

Bodisen will have a total of 18,176,917 shares outstanding upon completion of the above-noted transactions. Bodisen has no further outstanding debts (other than customary trade debts) on its balance sheet. Based on the current market environment, the Company believes that it has sufficient capital to fund its current growth plan.

Karen Qiong Wang, Chief Executive Officer of Bodisen commented, "Bodisen is focused on strengthening its balance sheet in anticipation of accelerated earnings growth in 2006 and beyond. With approximately $26 million in cash and our current growth plan in place, we do not anticipate the need to raise any additional capital. Bodisen is the largest organic fertilizer company in China with an extensive nationwide distribution network. Our plans include having two new production facilities fully operational before next year's planting season, which could potentially enable us to double our revenues in 2007 compared to 2006, while targeting on average net profit margin of approximately 30% of sales."

Commenting on China's chemical fertilizer industry, Ms. Wang continued: "With farmers continuing to shift from the use of chemical fertilizers to environmentally friendly bio-active fertilizers, such as Bodisen's - which increase farmers' crop yields by as much as 35% while restoring soil nutrients at the same cost as chemical fertilizers - we continue to see favorable market conditions that we believe will further accelerate our earnings growth potential in 2006 and beyond."

London investment bank Charles Stanley and the China subsidiary of Wall Street firm New York Global Group acted as advisors to Bodisen related to the above mentioned financing. Global law firms Jones Day and Sichenzia Ross Friedman Ference acted as legal counsels to this transaction.
