HONG KONG, Jan. 25, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Man Shing Agricultural Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:MSAH) ("Man Shing" the "Company," "we," "us," or "our"), located in the Shandong Province and one of the largest Chinese exporters of fresh ginger to Japan, the United Kingdom, and the Netherlands, today announced the closing of the $4 million common stock financing which was previously announced on September 16, 2010.

Under the terms of the agreement, investors purchased an aggregate of 10,000,000 shares of common stock of the Company for $0.40 per share (an aggregate of $4,000,000).

As a condition precedent to the consummation of the transaction, Mr. Shili Liu, Chief Executive Officer, Chairman and President of Man Shing, canceled 3,358,250 of the Company's preferred shares owned by him, which simplifies and improves the capital structure of the Company. As a result of this transaction, the company will have approximately 48 million common shares outstanding and 176,750 preferred shares outstanding.

Mr. Shili Liu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Man Shing, stated, "We are pleased to close on our previously announced equity financing of common shares and welcome our new investors. The closing of our financing was contingent on several conditions, including the cancelation of the Company's approximate 3.4 million in preferred stock that I owned."

Mr. Liu continued, "As a result of this transaction, the company currently has approximately $5.6 million in cash on hand. This financing provides us with adequate working capital to execute our growth strategy in 2011. Recently we announced an agreement to expand the production of ginger on 70,186 square meters of land in Japan. Our expansion into Japan will provide us with several advantages including helping establish our international farming presence, providing a higher price point for our ginger, and increased customer confidence due to the high quality and safety standards enforced in Japan. During the upcoming planting season we anticipate leasing more land to grow our fresh ginger."
