China Bilingual Changes Fiscal Year End

TAIYUAN CITY, China, October 31, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- China Bilingual Technology & Education Group Inc. (OTCBB: CBLY) ("China Bilingual" or the "Company"), an education company that owns and operates high-quality, K-12 private boarding schools in China, announced today that its board of directors unanimously approved a change of the Company's fiscal year end from December 31 to August 31, effective as of August 31, 2011.

Michael Toups, CFO of China Bilingual, stated, "By changing our fiscal year to August 31, our financial reporting will more accurately reflect the academic school year which typically begins September 1. We expect to file an audited transition report for the eight month period of January 1, 2011 to August 31, 2011 on Form 10-K by the end of November."

The change in fiscal year end also allows the Company to incorporate a full year of operational results for fiscal year 2012 of its newly acquired school. Founded in 2002, the newly acquired school is a K-12 private boarding school with approximately 3,000 students currently enrolled and a total capacity for approximately 10,000 students. The campus, located in Jinzhong City, near the Company's headquarters in Taiyuan City, spans 82 acres and is comprised of over 2.3 million square feet of facilities, including 18 dormitories, academic classrooms, gymnasium, theater, natatorium, cafeteria, and other administrative and academic buildings.

"We are very pleased to have closed on this transaction to begin the 2011-2012 academic school year," stated Dr. Ren Zhiqing, Chairman and CEO of China Bilingual. "The addition of the new school to our portfolio of educational institutions strengthens our position in the fast-growing private education sector in China. With our long history of operational success and track record of academic excellence, we believe we will be able to drive substantial growth in the years ahead. We began with just nine students enrolled in our original school in 1998, and we now have the capacity for 20,000 students. We remain dedicated to becoming an education leader in China and increasing long-term value for our shareholders."
