DALIAN, China, Nov. 17 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Industrial Waste Management, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CIWT), an industrial waste processor and provider of environmental protection, pollution treatment and waste management design services in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter of 2008 which ended September, 30, 2008.

Summary Financials:

Q3 2008 Q3 2007

Operating Revenue $3.2 million $2.3 million

Gross Profit $1.9 million $1.6 million

Net Income $0.83 million $0.81 million

EPS (Diluted) $0.06 $0.06

Third Quarter of 2008 Results (Unaudited):

Revenue for the third quarter of 2008 increased 37.5% to $3.2 million compared to $2.3 million for the same quarter in 2007. Revenue growth was driven by an increase in overall demand for the suite of services offered to the Company's installed customer base, an increase in the number of customers and volume for our waste processing services, and broader sales network for our recycled commodities.

"Our business, like many throughout China, was impacted by the Beijing Olympic games. Despite this short term interruption we continued to experience positive momentum in all aspects of our business," commented Mr. Jinqing Dong, Chairman and CEO of China Industrial Waste Management. "Our municipal waste water treatment facility came online and began contributing to revenues during the third quarter. In addition, we completed construction for the Zhuorui project, which utilizes patented plasma technology to recycle waste catalyst for the oil industry. We plan to commence operations in the near term as testing is finalized and expect this business line to favorably impact our margin profile in the future. Lastly, we made the decision to maintain an inventory of recycled commodities rather than sell them at currently deflated prices and expect this will positively impact future net income" Mr. Dong further elaborated.

Quarterly gross profit for the third quarter of 2008 was $1.9 million, compared to $1.6 million for the same period last year, yielding gross margins of 58.3% and 67.5% respectively. The company prudently managed operating expenses during the third quarter which were $0.67 million compared to $0.71 million for the same period last year. Operating margins were 37.3% compared to 36.9% for the third quarter of 2008 and 2007, respectively.

Net income for the third quarter of 2008 increased 2.4% to $0.83 million from $0.81 million in the same year ago period. Corresponding net profit margins were 26.1% for the quarter. The Company recorded a tax rate of 9% for the quarter and will utilize a similar tax rate for the balance of the year and 2009. Earnings per diluted share were $0.06 compared to $0.06 based on 13.9 million and 13.2 million diluted shares outstanding.

First Nine Months of 2008 ending September 30, 2008

Total Revenues increased by 53.1% to $5.4 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2008 as compared to the nine months ended September 30, 2007. Gross profit increased 50.6% to $6.6 million for the period compared to the first nine months of 2007 and gross margins were 66.2% compared to 67.3% for each respective period with the slight decrease resulting from the sharp increase in the price for raw materials compared to the year ago period. Operating expenses for the first nine months of 2008 increased by 1% to $2 million compared to the year ago period and positively impacted operating margins which were 45.9% compared to 36.5%. Net income for the nine months ended September 30 2008 increased by $1.4 million, or 63.7%, to $ 3.6 million compared to the year ago period. Earnings per share were $0.27 compared to $0.16 based on 13.4 million and 13.2 million diluted shares for each respective period.

Balance Sheet and Cash Flow Statement:

Cash and cash equivalents and restricted cash totalled $5.3 million on September 30, 2008 compared to $3.3 million on December 31, 2007. The Company had $4.4 million in working capital on September 30, 2008. Inventory was approximately $1.9 million on September 30, 2008 compared to $1.3 million on December 31, the majority which consists of metals extracted during the recycling process. Due to a sharp decline in the market price management determined it would be more advantageous to hold inventory until prices improved. The accounts receivable balance was $2.4 million on September 30, 2008, compared to $0.59 million on December 31, 2007 and annualized days sales outstanding for the third quarter of 2008 was 67 days. Shareholders' Equity on September 30, 2008 was $22.0 million. Net cash provided by operating activities for the first nine months was $2.0 million.

"We continued to expand our customer base during the quarter as new global companies are relocating manufacturing facilities in Dalian. We are close to commencing operations for our municipal sludge treatment facility and continue to seek new BOT projects which provide long-term and recurring revenue stream. By leveraging our existing operating experience and technology in solid waste treatment business, we are penetrating new geographic markets in China. We believe our diversified business will continue the growth momentum due to the increasing government regulation and support to strengthen environmental services and protection in China" Mr. Dong concluded.

Recent Events:

-- During August and September and through three different closings,

China Industrial Waste issued a total of 66 units of unregistered

securities consisting of common stock and warrants at a purchase price

of $60,000 per unit for gross proceeds of $3,960,000.

-- Zhuorui Resource Recycling Co., Ltd, the Company's indirect majority-

owned subsidiary, provides plasma arc melting, separation and

purification of waste catalysts and treatment of industrial wastes.

Valuable metals are extracted from the waste catalyst and sold while

leftover slag is utilized to make cement. Due to obstacles encountered

during the testing stage, the commercialization of Zhuorui has been

temporarily delayed.

-- China Industrial Waste Management's municipal Build-Operate-Transfer

(BOT) waste water treatment facility commenced operations in third

quarter. Another BOT unit, Dongtai Organic Waste Treatment, is

expected to commence operations in the first quarter of 2009.

-- REVISION TO GUIDANCE - China Industrial Waste Management, Inc. now

anticipates its earnings for the year ending December 31, 2008 will be

$4.5 million versus previously published guidance of $7.8 million. The

revised guidance primarily results from a combination of (a) operating

delays encountered by Zhuorui Resource Recycling Co., Ltd., the

Company's indirect majority-owned, (b) temporary disruptions in the

operations of some of the Company's customers caused by the Olympic

Games recently held in the PRC and (c) the recent decline worldwide for

prices of recycled commodities, in light of which the Company has

determined to maintain an inventory of recycled commodities rather

than sell them at currently deflated prices.
