About Longwei Petroleum Investment Holding Limited

Longwei Petroleum Investment Holding, Limited (the "Company") is an energy company that, through its subsidiaries, engages in oil and gas operations in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"). Oil and gas operations consist of transporting, marketing and selling finished petroleum products. The Company's headquarters and primary facilities are located in Taiyuan City, Shanxi Province ("Shanxi"). The Company's second facility is located in Gujiao, Shanxi. The Company purchases diesel, gasoline, fuel oil and kerosene (the "Products") from various petroleum refineries in the PRC. The Company is 1 of 3 licensed intermediaries in Taiyuan City and the sole licensed intermediary in Gujiao that operates its own large scale storage tanks. The Company has the necessary licenses to operate and sell Products not only in Shanxi but throughout the entire PRC. The Company's storage tanks have the largest storage capacity of any non-government operated entity in Shanxi. The Company seeks to earn profits by selling its Products at competitive prices to large-scale gas stations, coal plants, other power-supply customers and small, independent gas stations. The Company also earns revenue by acting as a purchasing agent for other intermediaries in Shanxi and through the sale of diesel and gasoline at gas stations located at each of the Company's facilities. The sales price and the cost basis of the Company's products are largely dependent on regulations and price control measures instituted and controlled by the PRC government as well as the price of crude oil. The price of crude oil is subject to fluctuation due to a variety of factors, all of which are beyond the Company's control.
