BioNitrogen Inc. (BION) Q1 2012 Shareholder Report


April 4, 2012 - Miami, Florida

BioNitrogen Corp. (BION) (PINKSHEETS: BION) a developer of revolutionary patent-pending technology for converting renewable and abundant biomass waste into high-nitrogen urea and urea fertilizer is pleased to report to shareholders on Q1 2012 activities and the Company outlook for 2012.

Dear Fellow Shareholders,

Management believes that BioNitrogen's first quarter of 2012 was a very positive and transformative period for the Company. We have identified domestic as well as global opportunities, met with global industry leaders, heads of State and government officials, and established the basis for 8 production lines throughout the world over the next 24 months, 2 of which we have reported, and 6 more we look forward to sharing with you in the coming months.

The Management of BioNitrogen has taken significant actions to position BioNitrogen as a sustained leader in the urea production as well as the agriculture fertilizer industry. We aggressively identified, targeted, managed and skillfully opened business development doors that will result in long lasting beneficial business relationships. In effect, we created a business template that will allow BioNitrogen to engage in profitable operations worldwide in an efficient manner and position BioNitrogen as a responsible global corporate citizen while creating we hope extraordinary and sustainable value for our shareholders. Patience is a virtue in this instance and the rest of this Report will outline our plans for maximizing your trust and faith in BioNitrogen.

For 2012 and beyond, our goal is to continue building strategic relationships that will help us construct our efficient and environmentally friendly urea production facilities on a multi-national level, thus delivering extraordinary value to our shareholders, customers, partners, and employees.

Throughout our continuing and dynamic evolution in this period of formation and initial growth, we hope to continue on our path of growth and transformation from a micro-cap company into a billion dollar multinational. More importantly, we have successfully laid the groundwork in this initial period with global business partners needed to position BioNitrogen for the next stage of sustained growth and profitability.

Our continued efforts in the development of strategic relationships worldwide (plant development network) will continue to expand in the coming months and years. There is no doubt that the BioNitrogen business and economic model has been received very positively worldwide. In just a few short months, BioNitrogen has earned a reputation of a unique but powerful alternative to building nitrogen-based fertilizer plants that cost $65,000,000 versus $1,200,000,000 for conventional urea production facilities. In addition, the world Fertilizer Industry has become aware that our plants require approximately 1.5 years construction time versus over 5-7 years for traditional plants. Finally, the industry has compared the economic models and ROI associated with our plants versus those in production or scheduled and realized the clear advantage we present.

Right Time and Place

In the current fertilizer industry environment, we are fortunate to be building a company built on a number of tremendous strengths in just the right time and place. From a technology standpoint, we believe that our innovative plant designs will result in BioNitrogen becoming the gold standard in the fertilizer manufacturing world. Our goal is to position BioNitrogen as the most trusted innovative and eco-friendly brand in the industry! Moreover, our business fundamentals remain solid as we generate dynamic business relationships around the world which we believe will in the future result in robust sustained cash flows, healthy balance sheets, strong customer and partner relationships, and strong leadership positions within the Agricultural World.

As we enter fiscal 2012, we are operating under strict best practices guidelines in all phases of business - operations, marketing, business development, industry networking, human resources and financing. In just a few months of operation, we've already become more agile and focused on our foundational priority - leadership in our core business which is fertilizer plant production and manufacturing. We believe we are well positioned to capitalize on our core competencies, initiatives and partnerships.

Plant Development - BioNitrogen's Base Economic Model

We will continue to take decisive actions to optimize our portfolio of strategic relationships and partnerships. These efforts will lead to the development of numerous plant development initiatives. The business model followed by BioNitrogen requires that an off-take agreement for the production of any facility be in place coupled with an agreement for the supply of the required feedstock (biomass) to serve as the raw material for our production. This insures that the risk factors of our plants are all but eliminated in their totality.

Based on agreements in place at the close of this first quarter, we are estimating the development of 8 nitrogen-based production lines with each facility generating $56,000,000 in gross revenue and nearing 1,000,000 tons of urea production. If we extrapolate out these numbers, at 8 production lines, the company will generate approximately $447,000,000 in gross revenues annually from said production facilities based on current market pricing. When we look at off-take contracts that span 3, 5 and 10 years, the numbers get very exciting, very quickly. These estimates regarding the future prospects of building a plant are based upon our associated base economic model. The projections are also based on management's best good faith beliefs and estimates regarding the financial economic model. However, management wishes to caution that any estimates or projections disclosed are subject to risks and uncertainties, some of which are beyond our control, that are not discussed herein.

In addition, BioNitrogen is currently involved in conversations and different levels of negotiations with strategic partners in the industry domestically as well as in over 10 countries worldwide in Central America, South America, Europe, the Caribbean as well as Asia and the Pacific Rim. We are confident that these discussions and due-diligence efforts will result in the consummation of beneficial business relationships for BioNitrogen worldwide and look forward to reporting on these events to our shareholders.

Plant Financing

We have established numerous financial relationships with local as well as international banks in order to meet our banking needs in the upcoming period. We are currently completing the necessary documentation to syndicate plant financing to banks and institutions with an insurance bond guarantee. The Company intends to report on these developments in the coming weeks. This plant financing strategy is the first of a series the Company is contemplating to support its international growth strategy. Further, I wish to stress to shareholders, as it relates to plant financing we do not anticipate an equity dilution event for the construction and commissioning of our plants. We have our shareholders' interests at the fore-front of our business model and we look forward to rewarding our loyal investors.

Shareholder Value and Optimization

The microcap markets are often fickle and we have seen our stock price rise and fall. We want our shareholders to know that management has not sold any shares in the company to date, nor do we have any intention at this point of doing so.

Further we are evaluating 3rd party analysts to perform a proper report and evaluation of our stock value. We look forward to further reporting on this to our shareholders in the coming weeks as we believe the stock is currently under-valued.

In order to further position our growth and maximize the transparency of information to our shareholders, BioNitrogen has retained the Public company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) Registered Public Accounting Firm of Cronin & Company, to perform its corporate audits in accordance with the standards set by the PCAOB. By engaging the services of Cronin & Company, BioNitrogen has begun the process in order to file a registration statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and become a fully reporting entity. Again, we believe this added transparency will help us attain a proper stock valuation.

The steps above are just the beginning of our efforts to take the proper steps to deliver sustained and patient value to our shareholders. We will maintain aggressive plant development in order to achieve optimum production capability in the shortest possible time. While the foundation has been laid for a strong BioNitrogen, we are aware that the reaching our corporate goals will continue to require hard work and dedication from all of our staff. We at BioNitrogen fully recognize that our next phase of growth will require us to stay focused, dedicated, disciplined and responsive in all phases of our business operations. We have met our initial goals and believe in the strong and brilliant future of BioNitrogen. Today, as a lean, agile, and aggressive BioNitrogen, we are focused on furtherance of these goals.

Our goals of optimizing shareholder wealth will naturally evolve as a result of our ability to solve our planet's most pressing needs - food, safe eco systems, energy reduction, carbon footprint reductions - impacting billions of people while the Company delivers a stock valuation that we believe shareholders will be proud of today and tomorrow.

BioNitrogen: Uniquely different.

Like most well informed investors, we believe the shareholders of BioNitrogen invest in companies which will clearly play a significant and important role in their respective industry - in this instance the fertilizer and agricultural industry. First and foremost, why do we believe BioNitrogen is so well positioned to solve so many of the critical issues facing the industry? Here's an introductory synopsis that will help our shareholders better understand why we believe BioNitrogen will become such an important part of the global food solution in the years ahead due to its patent-pending technology:

Bottom Line

As numerous, well-documented research reports have concluded, there is conclusively an inextricable link between food production and fertilizer production. The world is faced with many issues that impact fertilizer production. These include economic trends, GDP, income growth, energy costs, exchange rates, freight rates, shipping capacities, port congestion, longer trade routes, commodity prices, fuel costs, trade balances, available agricultural land, food demand, crop production, etc. The ever growing global population translates to a simple fact - the world simply cannot afford significant a drop in fertilizer production and hence crop production. We believe BioNitrogen's technology and business model will help solve many of these issues and constraints.

Well Positioned for the Future

We are currently more optimistic than ever about BioNitrogen's future. You have our commitment that BioNitrogen will continue to focus in all facets of growing a company that our friends, neighbors, relatives and investors can be proud of. We'll continue to drive accountability on all levels - from plant investment, revenue, gross margins, and market share to profitability and strategic direction in order to ensure BioNitrogen's future success.

In closing, BioNitrogen is firmly committed and focused on delivering long-term, sustained value to our shareholders while driving profitable growth and staying focused on the success of our customers and partners.

We appreciate your continued trust and we will continue to work hard to earn your trust at every opportunity. Thank you for being a valued shareholder and we look forward to sharing with you our next report.

On behalf of the Board of Directors,

Dr. Terry R. Collins Ph.D., P.E., President & CEO, BioNitrogen Corporation
