       Bonso Electronics Reports Compliance with NASDAQ Continued Listing
                         Standards and Year End Results

HONG KONG, Nov. 21, 2008 /Globe Newswire/ -- Bonso Electronics International,
Inc (Nasdaq: BNSO) today reported that it had been notified by the NASDAQ Stock
Market (the "NASDAQ") that Bonso had demonstrated compliance with the with
NASDAQ's requirements for continued listing as set forth in Marketplace Rule
4320(e)(12), because the Company had filed its Annual Report on Form 20-F for
the fiscal year ended March 31, 2008, with the United States Securities &
Exchange Commission ("SEC"). NASDAQ confirmed that the listing review is now
closed and that Bonso's common stock will remain listed on The NASDAQ Global

Bonso reported a net loss for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2008 of $8,550,000
or ($1.53) basic and diluted earnings per share, as compared to a net loss of
$1,371,000 or ($0.25) basic and diluted earnings per share posted during the
same period in the prior year. Net sales for the year ended March 31, 2008
decreased 5.7% to $62,687,000 from net sales of $66,491,000 for the year ended
March 31, 2007.

Mr. Anthony So, President and CEO stated: "During the fiscal year ended March
31, 2008, we recognized impairment of $2.4 million for the goodwill and brand
name related to our subsidiaries in Germany and Canada, because of the
subsidiaries' continued poor operating performance. Also, we wrote off $2.5
million for obsolete inventory. While these factors negatively impacted our
reported earnings, they did not have any cash impact to the company." Mr. So
said that Bonso experienced higher materials costs during the year, and an
increase in administrative and general expenses as well, which contributed to
the net loss. In addition, we recorded a provision of approximately $2,164,000
in relation to uncertain tax positions as of April 1, 2007.

Mr. So said further: "We are taking steps to eliminate losing businesses from
the Group, and to minimize costs where possible. We maintain a strong cash
position, which was $10.2 million (or $1.83 per share) as of March 31, 2008, an
increase of 26% as compared to $8.1 million as of March 31, 2007. Being aware of
the global economic downturn in 2008, and its unpredictable impact and duration,
we intend to focus our efforts on cost reduction and product development, in an
effort to return to profitability and meet the requirements of our customers."

The diluted net loss per share was the same as the basic net loss per share for
