China Fire Joins Russell 3000 Index and Russell Microcap Index



BEIJING, June 30 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Fire & Security Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: CFSG) (“China Fire” or “the Company”), a leading industrial fire protection product and solution provider in China, announced today that its common stock has been added to Russell 3000 Index and Russell Microcap Index when Russell Investments reconstituted its indexes on June 27, 2008.

The Russell family of U.S. indexes is designed to be a comprehensive representation of the investable U.S. equity market. These indexes are

value-weighted and include only common stocks belonging to corporations incorporated in the United States and its territories. The Russell 3000 Index measures the performance of the 3,000 largest U.S. companies based on total market capitalization, which represents approximately 98% of the investable U.S. equity market and will remain in place for one year. Russell Microcap Index measures performance of the microcap segment, representing less than 3% of the U.S. equity market.

Russell indexes are widely used by investment managers and institutional investors for index funds and as benchmarks for investment strategies. These investment tools originated from Russell’s multi-manager investment business in the early 1980s when the company saw the need for a more objective,

market-driven set of benchmarks in order to evaluate outside investment managers. Trading activities of asset managers or funds are influenced by index component changes. As a result, being added to or deleted from the Russell Indexes, as well as variations in the weightings in the indexes, affect the market demand for the stocks of the component companies.

"We are very pleased to be included in the Russell 3000 and Microcap Indexes in the latest reconstitution. Our inclusion in the Russell Indexes will expand our visibility to the investment community as we continue to grow in the future," commented Mr. Brian Lin, Chief Executive Officer of China Fire.
