Highway Holdings Receives OEM Tooling Order for Plastic Components From
Leading U.S. Printer Company

Complements Its Existing Relationship as Metal Components Supplier

HONG KONG, Dec. 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Highway Holdings Limited
(Nasdaq:HIHO) today announced it has received three tooling orders designed to
produce plastic components for printers offered by a leading U.S. printer
company.

"This new additional business represents an expansion of an OEM relationship
that has evolved since 2007. We are gratified by the confidence of our
customer in the company's quality and capabilities and look forward to further
opportunities to expand our valued-relationship," said Roland Kohl, president
and chief executive officer of Highway Holdings.

Kohl noted that the commencement of plastic component production represents a
significant strategic opportunity to expand the relationship with this
prestigious customer, which to date has only utilized Highway Holdings' metal
component manufacturing services. "We are now well-positioned to leverage our
established metal parts supplier relationship to expand and become a leading
plastic parts supplier for this customer in the near future. This is
particularly significant since the plastic components business is much larger
than metal components and the opportunities for future growth much greater,"
Kohl said.
