Yanglin Soybean, Inc. Reports 2010 Q1 Quarterly Financial Results

May 15, 2010

HEILONGJIANG, China, May 15 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ — Yanglin
Soybean, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: YSYB) (“Yanglin” or the “Company”), one of
the leading domestic processors of soybean products in China, today reported
its unaudited financial results for the fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2010.

Mr. Shulin Liu, Chief Executive Officer of Yanglin, commented, “During
2009, we experienced certain difficulties caused by the unfavorable pricing
environment for both our raw materials and end products, as a result of the
combined effect of the Chinese government’s strategic reserve purchase of
domestic soybeans and large imports of soybean into China at lower prices. In
the first quarter of 2010, however, we managed to generate a slight gross
profit, as a result of the improvement in the prices of our products. In
addition, we generated $3.2 million of cash from operations for the three
months ended March 31, 2010 compared to using $956K of cash for the comparable
quarter 2009. The cash generated in the first quarter of 2010 was primarily a
result of reducing the purchase of inventory. We believe that, as one of the
largest domestic soybean processors in Northeast China, with an annual
production capacity of 520,000 metric tons, that we are well positioned in
China’s domestic soybean industry, which still receives continuing support
from the Chinese government and, which we believe, has promising prospects in
the long-term, considering the growing demand for the soybean products in the

Mr. Lu continued, “In addition to the implementation of cost saving
measures, we are closely monitoring new government policy announcements. In
late 2009, after lobbying efforts of the domestic soybean industry, the
Chinese government announced that it would grant subsidies to soybean
processors who purchased domestic non-GM soybeans from farmers at a
government-guided price. We believe that this measure may help domestic
soybean processors, including Yanglin, to recover the cost of raw materials.
More importantly, we believe that this measure is a signal by the government
of its willingness to render further support to our industry. In the meantime,
we intend to continue to focus on making our operations more efficient and on
providing the same high-quality products and service our customers expect.”

First Quarter 2010 Results

Total revenue for the first quarter of 2010 was $34.1 million, compared to
$43.0 million recorded for the first quarter of 2009. The decrease in sales
during this period was mainly caused by reduced supply of raw materials, due
to the fact that China suffered from a reduction in the soybean production in
2009 due to the conversion to corn for better economics and the unfavorable
weather conditions. Meanwhile, the average selling prices of our products
increased in the first quarter of 2010, since the demand for soybean products
was traditionally strong during the Chinese New Year and the prices of
imported soybeans were high in the first quarter, as compared to historical
data. As a result, we generated a gross profit. Gross profit for the first
quarter of 2010 was $16,623,as compared to a gross loss of $1,142,022 for the
first quarter of 2009.

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2010 decreased to
$914,818, from $1,087,426 in the first quarter of 2009. Selling expenses for
the first quarter of 2010 decreased to $64,776, slightly lower than $69,246
for the first quarter of 2009. General and administrative expenses for the
first quarter of 2010 were $850,042, as compared to $1,018,180 for the first
quarter of 2009. The reduction was mainly the result of the strict cost saving
measures in items such as business entertainment and travel.

Operating loss for the first quarter of 2010 was $898,195, as compared to
a loss of $2,229,448 for the first quarter of 2009. Yanglin has been
recognized as a “Key Leading Enterprise” in the industrial sector of the
important agriculture industry by the Chinese government. The Company will
benefit from its income tax exempt status from January 2010 until June 2012.

During 2009, we adopted the provisions of FASB ASC Topic 815, “Derivatives
and Hedging” (“ASC 815″) (previously ElTF 07-5, “Determining Whether an
instrument (or an Embedded Feature) is Indexed to an Entity’s Own Stock”). In
2009, we incurred non-cash income of $59.4 million resulting from the change
in fair value of warrants issued to investors in conjunction with the
Company’s Series A Convertible Preferred Stock in October 2007. The accounting
treatment of the warrants resulted from an anti-dilution provision to the
warrant holders. In the first quarter of 2010, the non-cash income related to
the change in fair value of these warrants was $5.1 million, as compared to
$27.1 million in the first quarter of 2009, as restated.

Net income for the first quarter of 2010, after including the non-cash
income from the change in fair value of warrants, totaled $4.0 million, or
$0.13 per diluted share, compared with net income of $24.9 million, after
including the non-cash income from the change in fair value of the warrants,
or $0.63 per diluted share for the first quarter of 2009.

Cash Positions

The Company’s balance sheet as of March 31, 2010 included cash of $38.0
, compared with $34.8 million at December 31, 2009. The Company had net
working capital of $26.1 million as of March 31, 2010 compared to $26.5
as of December 31, 2009. Total shareholders’ equity was $34.9 million
as of March 31, 2010 compared to $30.9 million as of December 31, 2009.

Business Update

Mr. Liu concluded, “Over the last few months of 2009, we have been pleased
to see some positive signs coming on the horizon, including news that the
Chinese government will grant a subsidy to domestic soybean processors for the
soybeans they purchased from local farmers. We believe that this policy is the
start of a series of potential further financial supports to the domestic
non-GM soybean industry, which we believe will be favorable to our operations
when received. In addition, in the first quarter of 2010, we managed to
generate a slight gross profit, which we believe is also a positive sign. We
are still confident in the long-term prosperity of China’s soybean market and
business, and we believe that we will see a recovery of our operations and
