Sino-Forest Announces that Court of Appeal for Ontario Dismisses Appeal -- Meeting of Creditors to Proceed on November 29, 2012

TORONTO, Nov. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Sino-Forest Corporation ("Sino-Forest" or the "Company") announced that the Court of Appeal for Ontario today dismissed an appeal by the Company's former auditors and underwriters from an order made by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (the "CCAA Court") on July 27, 2012.

On July 27, 2012, the CCAA Court made an order that certain shareholder class action claims against the Company, and certain indemnity claims against the Company by the Company's former auditors and underwriters arising from those shareholder claims, are "equity claims" as defined in section 2 of the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA").  Under the CCAA, equity claims are subordinated to the claims of general creditors.  Today, the Court of Appeal affirmed the July 27, 2012 decision of the CCAA Court.

On October 19, 2012, the Company filed an amended Plan of Compromise and Reorganization ("Plan") and an Information Statement concerning the Plan.  The meeting of the Company's creditors to consider the Plan (the "Meeting") is scheduled for November 29, 2012.

Further information concerning the Meeting and the Plan, including the Information Statement and a Plan Supplement, is available on the Monitor's website at http://cfcanada.fticonsulting.com/sfc, the Company's website at www.sinoforest.com, and on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.  Affected Creditors should periodically check the Monitor's website at http://cfcanada.fticonsulting.com/sfc for additional reports of the Monitor and any updates or amendments to the Plan that may arise prior to the Meeting.

This news release contains forward-looking information within the meaning of applicable securities laws ("forward-looking statements"), including forward-looking statements relating to Sino-Forest's expectations with respect to timing of the meeting of the Company's creditors to consider the Plan. The forward looking statements expressed or implied by this news release are subject to important risks and uncertainties. Forward-looking statements are based on estimates and assumptions made by the Company in light of its experience and its perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors that the Company believes are appropriate in the circumstances.

Sino-Forest Corporation disclaims any intention or obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.
