The malicious and fraudulent attacks on the Company by short sellers seeking only to enrich themselves at the expense of our Company and its stockholders must stop. Trying to correct their false and defamatory statements one by one apparently serves no purpose since these short sellers clearly do not care about the truth.

We intend to do both, said Baowen Ren, Chairman of Sino Clean Energy.
