Weida Communications Appoints Two New Directors and Postpones Filing of Its SEC Annual Report (10-K); Rule 144 Not Available For Sales of Shares Until the Annual Report is Filed

Newtown, Pennsylvania, UNITED STATES


NEWTOWN, Pa., Sept. 13, 2005 (PRIMEZONE) -- Weida Communications, Inc. (Other OTC:WDAC), a U.S. company providing satellite communications services throughout China, today named two new directors and announced that it would postpone filing its Annual Report (10-K) to the Securities and Exchange Commission for at least one additional month.

The new directors are Chris Lennon, who was named as Weida's president and chief executive officer (CEO) last week, and Donald L. Huizenga, owner of Deacon Associates LLC, a management solutions company providing planning and operational services to companies in the international marketplace.

Speaking both as the new CEO and director, Chris Lennon said: "Don Huizenga and I have agreed on the need for additional time to review the company's financial details. Additional time is also needed in part because of the recent change in the company's auditors, as well as the relatively high burdens of the more stringent SEC-mandated accounting and internal control requirements affecting all public companies, and our desire to restore and maintain investor confidence in Weida."

Lennon continued, "I look forward to working with Don, who has a strong background in international commerce and who, during the course of his long career, ran three industrial companies, bringing them through crucial periods in their growth and development."

Weida's fiscal year ended on June 30, 2005.

Under SEC regulations, SEC Rule 144 that allows the sale in public trading markets of unregistered shares (including all shares issued in the June 2004 share exchange) will not be available for use after September 13 until the Annual Report is filed.
