(OTC Bulletin Board: EGLY) ("Ever-Glory," "the Company"), a leading apparel manufacturer in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), announced today that it received a production order valued at approximately $4 million from NEXT PLC ("NEXT") during the month of August.

"We are delighted to expand our relationship with NEXT through our

well-regarded product and service quality," said Mr. Yihua Kang, Ever-Glory's Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President.

Our 14 years of experience in apparel manufacturing and exports also enables us to obtain premier opportunities with new international partners."


The launch of the NEXT retail chain in February 1982 had a major influence on High Streets throughout the UK, shaping the future of fashion retailing. The continued success of NEXT's unique and innovative shopping concept has provided the company with an outstanding record of achievement in a comparatively short period of time. The first store opened with an exclusive co-ordinated collection of stylish clothes, shoes and accessories for women. Collections for men, children and the home quickly followed. NEXT clothes are styled by the in-house design team to offer consistency of style, quality and value for money with a contemporary fashion edge.
