FUQING CITY, CHINA, United States, via eTeligis Inc., 07/23/2014 - - GuanweiRecycling Corp. (the "Company" orGuanwei") (Nasdaq:GPRC), China's leading clean tech manufacturer of recycled low density polyethylene(LDPE), reported today it received a letter of notification from the Depository Trust Company ("DTC") on July 18,2014, that DTC intends to suspend all book entry services provided to DTC participants with respect to GPRCshares (the "Global Lock"). The letter indicated the Company has until August14, 2014 to provide a writtenresponse stating its objections to the DTC action, after which the latter will make either a determination or a requestfor further information within 20 days.

The DTC decision is the result of a recent SEC enforcement action againstS. Paul Kelley and four other individuals, in which the SEC alleges that Kelly et al issued unregistered sharesof the Company in violationofSection5 of the Securities Act. (See Securities and Exchange Commission v. S. Paul Kelley. et al., Civil ActionNo. 2:14-cv-2827) (D. N.J., filed May 5, 2013). It is DTC's position that such shares were not eligible for deposit atDTC for book entry services. Because all the Company's shares held by DTC are freely interchangeable, DTChas determined to implement the Global Lock. The Company said there wereno allegations made about anyimproprieties by GPRC, and believes DTC's actions are unfair and unnecessarily damaging to currentshareholders and the Company.

The Company said it is reviewing its options and, if there are any new developments with respect to this matter, it will inform shareholders.
