WUHAN, China, Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Kingold Jewelry, Inc. (NASDAQ: KGJI), ("Kingold" or the "Company"), one of China's leading manufacturers and designers of high quality 24-karat gold jewelry, ornaments and investment-oriented products, today announced that the Company has entered into a Subscription Agreement ("Agreement") with three individuals providing for the sale of 7,000,000 shares of its common stock at a price of $1.80 per share for gross proceeds of $12,600,000.
The Company also issued to the investors, on a pro rata basis, warrants to purchase up to an additional 2,800,000 shares of its common stock at an exercise price of $1.80, which warrant is not cashless exercise but is exercisable at any time in whole or in part for twelve months following the date of the Agreement.

Mr. Zhihong Jia, Chairman and CEO of Kingold Jewelry, Inc. stated, "We were pleased to reach an agreement that will allow our Company to accelerate its growth. While the terms were at a significant discount to the Company's book value, the shares sold at a purchase price higher than our closing price. The principle investors in this transaction have followed Kingold prior to its initial public offering and have held a long-standing belief in the Company's fundamentals and prospects in China's gold market. We look forward to keeping investors apprised of our progress in the coming weeks."
