JINJIANG, China, Oct. 19, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 8888 Acquisition Corporation ("the "Company") (OTCQB:EGHA) announced the closing of a share exchange transaction with the shareholders of Cheng Chang Shoes Industry Company Limited, a Hong Kong company ("Cheng Chang") and a related offshore private placement financing transaction. After the completion of these transactions, the business operations of the Company will be conducted by its indirect Chinese subsidiary, Jinjiang Cheng Chang Shoes Co., Ltd.

In the share exchange transaction, Cheng Chang's shareholders were issued an aggregate of 31,059,267 shares of the Company's common stock in exchange for 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Cheng Chang. In connection with the share exchange transaction, the Company's former CEO and sole director, Glenn A. Little, also agreed to sell 100,000 shares of the Company's common stock to the Company for $4,000.

In conjunction with the exchange transaction, the Company closed a private placement of its common stock in which it issued 2,547,500 shares of its common stock in exchange for gross offering proceeds of approximately $4.5 million, or approximately $1.77 per share, before payment of fees.

In connection with the private placement transaction, the Company's Chairman and CEO, Mr. Guoqing Zhuang, placed into escrow and pledged to several other parties, including the investor, 7,492,154 shares of the Company's common stock owned by him in support of the Company's obligation to achieve a pre-established after tax net income level. If the Company's after tax net income for the six month period ended December 31, 2010 is less than RMB 45,997,157 (approximately $6.97 million), then, based upon an agreed formula, all or a portion of the shares placed into escrow will be transferred to the investor and other parties pro rata. If, however, the Company's after tax net income for such period equals or exceeds such amount, the shares placed into escrow will be returned to Mr. Zhuang.

As a result of these transactions, Cheng Chang has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company and the former shareholders of Cheng Chang have become owners of approximately 86% of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock, on a fully diluted basis.

In connection with the change in ownership of the Company, Mr. Glenn A. Little, the Company's sole officer and director, submitted a resignation letter in which he resigned from all offices that he held, effective immediately, and from his position as the Company's director that will become effective on the tenth day following the mailing of an information statement to the Company's stockholders, which will be mailed on or about October 27, 2010. Also upon the completion of the share exchange transaction, Mr. Guoqing Zhuang was elected to the Board of Directors of the Company and was appointed as its President and Chief Executive Officer. In addition, the Company's other executive officers were replaced by Cheng Chang's executive officers.

Mr. Zhuang stated, "We want to thank our financial advisor, Advance Insight Limited, for facilitating our efforts in connection with our private financing and the going public transaction. These transactions have given us access to the U.S. capital markets, with the intent of capitalizing on significant growth opportunities."
