CTDC Announces Name Change and Reverse Stock Split

CTDC Announces Name Change and Reverse Stock Split

HONG KONG, Oct. 24, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- China Technology Development
Group Corporation (Nasdaq:CTDC) ("we" or "the Company") today announced the
change of its name to Renewable Energy Trade Board Corporation and the
implementation of a 1-for-10 reverse split of its common stock. The name
change and the reverse stock split will become effective on Wednesday, October
24, 2012, upon receipt of the approval by the registrar of British Virgin
Islands of the Company's amended and restated Memorandum of Association
effecting these changes. The Company's common stock will begin trading on The
Nasdaq Capital Market under the new symbol "EBOD" and on a split-adjusted
basis when the market opens on Thursday, October 25, 2012. In addition, the
Company's common stock will begin trading at such time under a new CUSIP
number (G7495T 106).

Both the name change and reverse stock split were approved by the Company's
shareholders at the 2012 annual general meeting of shareholders (the "2012
AGM") held in Hong Kong on September 28, 2012. The Company's board of
directors (the "Board of Directors") was authorized to implement a reverse
stock split and determine the ratio of the split within a range of not less
than 1-for-2 and not greater than 1-for-10. The Board of Directors has
determined to fix the ratio for the reverse stock split at 1-for-10.

At the effective time of the reverse stock split, every ten shares of the
Company's issued and outstanding common stock will be converted automatically
into one issued and outstanding share of common stock. The par value per share
will be increased to US$0.10, the number of shares of common stock authorized
will be reduced to 400,000,000, and the number of shares of the Company's
issued and outstanding common stock will be reduced from 22,498,549 to
approximately 2,249,854. In addition, the reverse stock split will effect a
proportionate adjustment to the per share exercise price and the number of
shares issuable upon the exercise of all outstanding stock options and
warrants to purchase or acquire shares of the Company's common stock.

The purpose of the reverse stock split is to regain compliance with the
US$1.00 per share minimum bid price requirement for continued listing of the
Company's common stock on The Nasdaq Capital Market. As previously reported,
in order to maintain its listing on the Nasdaq Capital Market, on or before
November 26, 2012, the Company's common stock must have a minimum closing bid
price of US$1.00 per share for a minimum of ten consecutive trading days.
However, there can be no assurance that the Company's common stock will meet
the Nasdaq Capital Market continued listing requirements following the reverse
stock split.

After the effective date, record holders of the Company's common stock will
receive a letter of transmittal from American Stock Transfer & Trust Company,
the Company's transfer agent, with instructions for the exchange of existing
stock certificates. The transfer agent will act as the exchange agent and can
be contacted at (877) 248-6417 or (718) 921-8317. No fractional shares will be
issued as result of the reverse stock split. Instead, the transfer agent will
aggregate all fractional shares and arrange for them to be sold as soon as
practical after the effective date of the reverse stock split at the then
prevailing prices on the open market on behalf of those shareholders. After
such sale and, in the case of holder of certificated common stock, upon the
surrender of the stock certificates representing such shares, shareholders
will receive a payment from the transfer agent acting on behalf of the Company
in an amount equal to the shareholder's pro rata share of the total net
proceeds derived from the sale of the fractional interest to which they would
otherwise be entitled.

Additional information regarding the name change and the reverse stock split
can be found in the Company's proxy statement for 2012 AGM, copies of which
