Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc. Announces 2010 Annual Shareholder Meeting Results and Reincorporation in Delaware

LONG BEACH, Calif., July 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Global Clean Energy Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:GCEH), a California-based biofuel feedstock development and operations company, announced today the results of the 2010 Annual Shareholder Meeting held in Los Angeles, California on July 15, 2010.

The following five agenda items were considered and approved by the shareholders:

1. The re-election of all four Board of Director members:

  --  David Walker
  --  Mark Bernstein
  --  Martin Wenzel
  --  Richard Palmer

2. Ratification of Hansen, Barnett & Maxwell, P.C. as the company's independent auditors

3. Adoption of the 2010 Equity Incentive Plan

4. Reincorporation of the company in the state of Delaware

5. Amendment to the Articles of Incorporation to grant permission to the Board of Directors to effect a reverse stock split at a future date

The reincorporation of the company in Delaware and the approval of the reverse stock split were approved with more than 94% of the shares voted on these measures, voting in favor of these actions.

After the voting was concluded, Richard Palmer, the company's CEO and President, provided a brief overview of the company, its goals, available services and current operations. An open Question and Answer session was held with the shareholders who were present. Mr. Palmer concluded the meeting by stating, "We want to thank the shareholders for their votes and support of the Board and Management. We are excited about our future growth potential, and our ability to establish a strong base upon which to grow the company."

On Monday, July 19, 2010, the reincorporation of the company from a Utah corporation to a Delaware corporation was completed, as approved by shareholders. In the reincorporation, each outstanding share of the company's common stock was automatically converted into one share of common stock of the surviving Delaware corporation. Shareholders do not need to exchange their stock certificates for stock certificates in the Delaware corporation. The reincorporation did not result in any change in the company's name, ticker symbol, CUSIP number, business, assets or operations. The management and Board of Directors of the company will remain the same.

The management and Board of Directors of the company believe that the reincorporation of the company in Delaware will provide the shareholders with the benefits of Delaware's laws and attract more institutional investors.

The authority to execute a reverse stock split will enhance the Company's ability to move its common stock to be listed on NASDAQ or on another stock exchange. The Company will only execute the reverse split if the Board believes there is a sound business reason to do so which will increase shareholder value.

As a service to the shareholders who were unable to attend the shareholder meeting, the meeting presentation is available on the company's website at
