WUHAN, Hubei, China, Feb. 4 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- Wuhan General Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: WUHN; "Wuhan General" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of industrial blowers and turbines in China, today announced that it has retained CCG to design and execute its investor relations campaign.

"We are looking forward to working closely with CCG to raise our visibility within the US investment community and financial media as we seek to communicate our corporate achievements to a broader audience," said Mr. Jie Xu, chairman and chief executive officer of Wuhan General Group Inc. "Given CCG's solid history of working with US-listed Chinese companies, we are confident in the potential of this new partnership."

Headquartered in Wuhan, Hubei Province, Wuhan General designs, manufactures, and distributes industrial blowers and turbines. Blowers are widely used in a variety of applications such as electricity generation, air pollution control, ventilation, aeration and sewage treatment. Steam and water turbines produced by the Company are primarily used for electricity generation in coal, oil, nuclear, and hydroelectric power plants. The Company possesses stringent procedures for quality control and strong design capabilities. For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2007, the Company's revenues and net income were $82.5 million and $14.9 million. For fiscal year 2008, the Company is forecasting $119.7 million in revenues and $22.0 million in net income, excluding one-time, non-cash charges related to capital markets activities, representing expected year-over-year increases of 45.1% and 47.7%, respectively.

"We are excited to have this opportunity to design and execute a comprehensive investor relations program for Wuhan General, which is well recognized for its technological sophistication and quality construction of blowers and turbines. As the Chinese Government has recently committed to allocating significant funds for a four trillion Yuan ($600 billion) economic stimulus package which is largely focused on infrastructure, Wuhan General is well positioned for continued growth in the domestic Chinese market," commented Crocker Coulson, president of CCG Investor Relations.
