EBOD Announces Intention to Voluntarily Delist From the Nasdaq Stock Market and Deregister as a Reporting Company With the SEC

EBOD Announces Intention to Voluntarily Delist From the Nasdaq Stock Market
and Deregister as a Reporting Company With the SEC

HONG KONG, Feb. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Renewable Energy Trade Board
Corporation, formerly known as China Technology Development Group Corporation
(Nasdaq:EBOD) ("we" or the "Company"), a fast growing clean energy group in
China based in Hong Kong, today announced that it intends to voluntarily
delist its common stock from the Nasdaq Stock Market and deregister the
Company as a reporting company with the Securities and Exchange Commission
(the "SEC").

The Company has notified the Nasdaq Stock Market of its intent to voluntarily
delist its common stock from the Nasdaq Capital Market and will file a notice
on Form 25 relating to the delisting of its common stock with the SEC on or
about February 11, 2013, but no earlier than February 11, 2013. The Company
expects that the trading of its common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market will
be suspended on the date the Form 25 is filed, with the official delisting of
the Company's common stock becoming effective ten days thereafter.
Simultaneously with the effectiveness of delisting, the Company plans to file
a Form 15 with the SEC to terminate its reporting obligations under the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act"). Upon the
filing of the Form 15, the Company's obligations to file certain reports with
the SEC, including Form 20-F and Form 6-K, will immediately be suspended. The
Company expects that the deregistration of its common stock will become
effective ninety days after the date the Form 15 is filed. The deregistration
of the Company's common stock is subject to the SEC's review.

Following the delisting, it is expected that the trading of the Company's
common stock by continuing shareholders may be effective through privately
negotiated transactions or on the Pink Sheets, a centralized electronic
quotation service for over-the-counter securities, so long as market makers
demonstrate an interest in trading in the Company's common stock. However, the
Company can provide no assurance that the trading in its common stock will
continue in the Pink Sheets or in any other form. More information about the
Pink Sheets can be obtained from its website at http://www.pinksheets.com.

The decision to voluntarily delist and deregister its common stock has been
driven by the Company's goal to reduce current expenses and to avoid future
expenses associated with the NASDAQ listing and compliance with SEC reporting
requirements, which include audit, legal and other administrative fees. The
Company's common stock is very thinly traded on the Nasdaq Capital Market and
has generated no significant institutional investor interest or analyst
coverage. The Company's Board of Directors authorized the delisting and
deregistration of the Company's common stock after concluding that the
consequences of remaining an SEC-reporting company, including the significant
costs associated with regulatory compliance, outweighed the current benefits
of remaining listed on the Nasdaq Stock Market. The Company believes that the
expense reductions inherent in delisting and deregistration will benefit the
Company and its shareholders and serve to maximize the long term value of the
Company. In addition, the deregistration will enable the Company's senior
management to focus more of its time and resources on operating the Company
and enhancing shareholder value. Following the deregistration, the Company
intends to continue to be audited by independent accounting firms and prepare
and publish its consolidated annual financial results on its company website
