Sinovac Biotech Ltd. (NYSE Amex: SVA), a leading developer and provider of vaccines in China, today announced that it has received a Certificate of Approval from the Secretaria de Salud to distribute PANFLU.1, its H1N1 pandemic influenza (swine flu) vaccine, in Mexico.

The certificate is valid through October 13, 2014. Laboratorios Imperiales S.A. de C.V., a biopharmaceutical company with operations in Mexico since 1935, is the exclusive distributor of Sinovac's vaccine products in the Mexican market, pursuant to a prior distribution agreement signed in 2005 with its affiliate. The application for Anflu was filed in Mexico as well.

Mr. Weidong Yin, Chairman, President and CEO of Sinovac, commented, "Receiving the certificate of approval to distribute PANFLU.1 in Mexico is a significant milestone for Sinovac. Importantly, this approval is a continuation of our corporate strategy to register and distribute our vaccines in international markets through strategic collaborations. We appreciate the ongoing efforts of our distribution partner, Laboratorios Imperiales, who has worked closely with the Mexican authorities to obtain this certificate of approval. We will continue to collaborate closely with authorities in China and Mexico in order to facilitate the distribution of PANFLU.1, and potentially other vaccines in our portfolio, in this important market."
