BEIJING, Oct. 17, 2013

BEIJING, Oct. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- ChinaEdu Corporation (NASDAQ: CEDU)
("ChinaEdu" or the "Company"), a leading online educational services provider
inChina, today announced that on October 14th the Company conducted a search
at the Beijing Administration of Industry and Commerce concerning Beijing
Hongcheng Education Technology Limited, which is a variable interest entity
("VIE") of ChinaEdu, as part of the Company's regular review of its corporate
structure. The search revealed that a 28% equity share of the VIE (the
"Share") held by Xueshan Yang, who is a nominee shareholder of the Company,
was frozen by Beijing's First Intermediate People's Court (the "Court") under
a Notice to Assist in Enforcement (the "Notice"). It was held in the Notice
that civil judgments regarding two loan contract disputes between the Beijing
Xisi Branch of China Construction Bank Corporation and Xueshan Yang have taken
effect, and pursuant to relevant regulations of Civil Procedural Law of the
People's Republic of China, the Share held by Xueshan Yang was frozen and can
not be pledged, sold, transferred, deregistered or changed in any manner
between April 25, 2013 and April 24, 2015. The Company contacted the Court and
such fact was confirmed by the Court's judge who filed the notice with the
Beijing Administration of Industry and Commerce.

Based on information obtained by the Company, the fact that the Share had been
pledged to the Company before such Notice was filed and the fact that Xueshan
Yang was a nominee shareholder who had entered into a series of contractual
arrangements with the Company and provided any and all power of attorney and
shareholder rights to the Company before the Notice, management does not
believe the freezing of the above mentioned nominee shareholder's equity in
the VIE will cause any material impact to the operations of the Company.
