BEIJING and CLAREMONT, Calif., May 16, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kiwa Bio-Tech Products Group Corporation (OTCBB:KWBT) announced results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2011.

There were no revenues recorded for the first quarter of 2011 compared to sales from ongoing operations of $78,787 for the three months ended March 31, 2010. This reflects extreme market conditions during the weak season for fertilizer sales.

The net loss attributable to Kiwa shareholders for the first quarter was $476,639 and $471,533 respectively.

Kiwa continues to seek capital to strengthen its balance sheet and enable it to take advantage of opportunities supplying the Chinese agricultural industries. During the three months ended March 31, 2011, related parties including the Chairman and other corporate officers advanced over $130,000 to the Company.

Please refer to our 10Q report filed today with the Securities and Exchange Commission for additional information on the results and operations.
