HONG KONG, April 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Board of Directors of Sinobiomed Inc. ("Sinobiomed," or "the Company") (Pink Sheets:SOBM) is pleased to announce the signing of a binding letter of intent to merge with Sitoa, Corporation ("Sitoa").

Sinobiomed, having recently disposed of all its biopharmaceutical businesses, will acquire 100% of Sitoa in a share exchange.

Sitoa, www.sitoa.net , a California based company, was founded in 2001 with the goal to make it easier for retailers and product suppliers to sell online. The Sitoa solution was based on providing an easy-to-use and comprehensive platform to expand product offerings and take advantage of fast-moving market opportunities. Starting with one online retail partner - Sears.com - and a single product partner - Northgate Computers, Inc. - the Sitoa Network grew to include many of the world's top online retailers and over 1000 name brand and boutique product partners.

The merger with Sitoa enables Sinobiomed to enter a high growth area of business which will expand into the rapidly expanding area of marketplace and social media based online commerce and roll-out Sitoa's platform into China and Southeast Asia.

Cal Lai, CEO of Sitoa, comments: "We are excited to become a public company which allows us to accelerate our growth and expand our reach to key customers and markets. We have a proven 10 year track record of conducting e-commerce business and are well positioned to scale up."

George Yu, CEO of Sinobiomed, who will move to the role of Chief Financial Officer of Sitoa, added: "Sitoa is a fast growing company in the high growth areas of social media and marketplace e-commerce. We are excited about the prospects of the merger."

The Company will change the name and ticker symbol upon the closing of the merger.
