NEW YORK and SHANDONG PROVINCE, China, Aug. 3  -- Gulf Resources, Inc. ("Gulf Resources" or the "Company"), a leading manufacturer of bromine, crude salt and specialty chemical products in China, announced today that on July 28, 2009 its Board of Directors adopted resolutions approving a reverse split of the Company's Common Stock on within a range of 1 for 4 to 1 for 9, so that every four (4) to nine (9) outstanding shares of Common Stock before the reverse stock split shall represent one share of Common Stock after the reverse stock split. The resolution was subsequently adopted by the written consent of the Company's stockholders entitled to vote a majority of the shares of Common Stock on July 29, 2009. Stockholders holding in the aggregate 67,638,898 shares of Common Stock or 55.4% of the Common Stock outstanding approved the reverse split. The reverse split is part of the Company's strategy to uplist its shares to a senior US stock market.

Currently, Gulf Resources has approximately 122.2 million shares of common stock outstanding. After a four to one reverse split, the Company would have approximately 30.5 million and after a nine to one reverse split, the Company would have approximately 13.6 million shares outstanding. The exact ratio of reverse stock split and effective date of the reverse split is subject to approval from the Company's Board of Directors, but is expected to occur by mid-September.

"By effecting a reverse split our common stock, we believe that we now meet all of the criteria required to list our shares on a senior stock market in the US," said Mr. Xiaobin Liu, Chief Executive Officer of Gulf Resources. "We feel that this action is in the long-term interest of our Company and our shareholders as it will help us attracting investor interest in our stock, improve our liquidity and provide greater access to the US financial markets as we execute our growth strategy."
