NINGBO, China, May 6 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Silver Pearl Enterprises, Inc. (to be renamed Keyuan International Group Limited) (OTC Bulletin Board: SVPE), ("Keyuan" or the "Company"), a leading independent manufacturer and supplier of various petrochemical products in China, announced today that it has engaged Hampton Growth to assist in providing investor relations services as a complement to the efforts of HC International, Inc., which will be providing a program of traditional investor relations activities and institutional investor management for the Company.

Keyuan Petrochemicals is a leading independent manufacturer and supplier of a wide range of petrochemicals in China. The Company's products include BTX Aromatics, Propylene, Styrene, Liquefied Petroleum Gas and MTBE as well as other chemicals, which are used in a variety of industrial applications and products, including paint, ink, packaging and construction materials, pesticides, household detergents, electronic parts, and home furnishings, among others. The Company currently has 550,000 metric tons of production capacity and is experiencing high demand for its products due to China's robust economic growth and under-developed supply capacity. The Company recently completed a $23.2 million private placement and plans to use the net proceeds to expand its manufacturing facility, which will include a raw material pre-treatment facility, additional storage facility and an asphalt production facility. For the year ended 2009, the Company realized $68.7 million in revenue. The Company estimates that the revenue in 2010 will be approximately $460 million.

"We are excited to be working with Hampton Growth and look forward to them assisting us to maximize the value of our enterprise by providing exposure to their vast network of retail brokerage firms and Asian investors," said Mr. Chunfeng Tao, Chairman, Chief Executive Officer, and President of the Company. "Hampton Growth's experience in working with Chinese industrial firms and their presence on the ground will be a valuable asset to us following our reverse merger and recent private placement."

Robert Haag, Managing Director of Hampton Growth, stated, "I was very impressed when I visited Keyuan's facility in March and we are highly confident that their experienced management team is well positioned to take advantage of the growing market for petrochemicals in China and significantly increase shareholder value. Our multination team, based in China and USA, will be able to assist Keyuan to build visibility and support by introducing the Company to key market participants in Asia, Europe and the USA focused on high growth equities in China."
