Ever-Glory to Amend 2006 Annual Results and First Quarter 2007 Results to Account for New-Tailun Acquisition

NANJING, China, June 25 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- Ever-Glory International Group, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: EGLY) ("Ever-Glory," "the Company"), a leading apparel manufacturer in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), announced today that it will amend its annual report on Form 10-KSB for the year ended December 31, 2006, and its quarterly report on Form 10-QSB for the quarter ended March 31, 2007, to properly account for the acquisition of Nanjing New-Tailun Garments Co., Ltd, a Chinese limited liability company ("New-Tailun"), on December 11, 2006.

On June 22, 2007, the Company's Board of Directors determined that the financial statements for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2006, and the quarter ended March 31, 2007, should no longer be relied upon. The New-Tailun acquisition was originally recorded at the fair-market value of the assets acquired under the purchase accounting method. However, the Company, along with its independent auditors, has determined the assets and liabilities of New-Tailun should have been recorded at their carrying values rather than their fair-market values at the time of the acquisition. Accordingly, the full-year 2006 and first-quarter 2007 financial statements will be prepared as if the merger had occurred retroactively.

"Ever-Glory is committed to providing our shareholders with the highest level of financial disclosure. We are working closely with our auditors to complete the restatement of our previously issued financial results as expediently as possible," said Kang Yihua, the Company's Chairman, Chief Executive Officer and President. "We continue to strengthen our internal accounting staff and processes to enable our continued growth in the apparel industry."

For the 2006 fiscal year, the Company expects total assets and stockholders' equity as of December 31, 2006, to be reduced by approximately $10 million. Full-year 2006 net sales are expected to be increased by approximately $9.6 million, and net income is expected to rise by approximately $0.9 million. The Company also anticipates no impact on fiscal-year 2006 diluted earnings per share.

Management expects total assets and total stockholders' equity as of March 31, 2007, will be reduced by approximately $10 million.
