WEIFANG, Shandong, China, June 14, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Yuhe International, Inc. (NASDAQ: YUII) ("Yuhe" or the "Company"), a leading supplier of day-old chickens raised for meat production, or broilers, in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), today announced that certain of its executive officers and directors have completed the previously announced executive stock purchase plan, by which they purchased the Company's common stock for their personal accounts on the open market at prevailing market prices. The Company further announced that its management will comment on the recent price volatility of the Company's shares through a special conference call before the market opens on Tuesday, June 14, 2011.

Pursuant to the previously announced executive stock purchase plan, the participating officers and directors collectively invested approximately RMB 2.1 million, or approximately US$330,000, in the shares of the Company. The participating executive officers and directors included the Company's Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Zhentao Gao, Chief Financial Officer, Mr. Gang (Vincent) Hu, and certain members of its Board of Directors. The executive stock purchase plan was funded by cash commitments made by the participating officers and directors and will not have any impact on the Company's financial statements or cash balance. The execution of the executive stock purchase plan was conducted in a manner consistent with the interest of all of the shareholders of the Company, taking into account of market conditions, stock prices, and other factors.

Mr. Zhentao Gao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yuhe International, commented, "The adoption and execution of the executive stock purchase program is a strong demonstration of our commitment to aligning the interests of our shareholders and our executive officers and Directors. The management and directors believe that the Company's fundamentals and growth prospects are not fairly reflected in its current share price, which represents an attractive opportunity for personal investments. We remain devoted to leveraging our operational expertise in China's day-old broiler industry to deliver superb operational results and long-term returns for our shareholders."
