China Security & Surveillance Technology CEO Signs MOU to Repay Personal Loan

SHENZHEN, China , Nov. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- China Security & Surveillance Technology, Inc. (NYSE: CSR; DIFX: CSR), a leading provider of digital surveillance technology in China , today announced that Whitehorse Technology Limited, a company wholly owned by Mr. Tu Guo Shen , Chief Executive Officer of CSST, signed a Memorandum of Understanding ('MoU') to repurchase U.S.$50,000,000 in aggregate principal amount of Exchangeable Senior Notes (the "Notes") due 2012 from a third party investor not affiliated with CSST.

Whitehorse has not defaulted in any situation with the third party investor for the Notes. The parties to the Notes have reached an MOU today, which states that Whitehorse will repurchase the Notes by repayment installments. All of the repayment amount will be repaid by the middle of 2009. The collateral shares will be returned on a pro rata basis to Mr. Tu upon each repayment.

Mr. Guo Shen Tu , commented, "The terms of this MoU will provide greater flexibility and it releases the pressure of the obligations for Whitehorse under the Notes. I am very confident that this framework is good news not only for Whitehorse but for CSST also as it provides more confidence and accountability to our shareholders and potential investors."

Mr. Tu continued, "The intent of this original loan was to repurchase shares of CSST to demonstrate my commitment to CSST and express my belief that CSST's recent share price levels undervalue the company. The Notes were issued by Whitehorse and secured by my own holdings of CSST common stock. They did not result in any dilution of shares of common stock held by other CSST stockholders, interest on the Notes was paid by Whitehorse and CSST's net income was not affected in any way by my open market share purchase transactions."

CSST was not a party to any of the Note agreements and did not make any representations, warranties or covenants in connection with the Notes.
