Further Expansion into Mainland China

 

New Trend Lifestyle Group plc (AIM: NTLG), the Singapore-based Feng Shui products and services group, is pleased to announce that New Trend Lifestyle (Shenzhen) Ltd ("NTLSZ"), its wholly-owned subsidiary based in China, has entered into a licensing agreement with Guangzhou Yuanzhongxiu Commodity Information Consulting Co., Ltd ("GYCIC"). The estimated annual income from licence payments alone is expected to be RMB1.2 million.  In addition there will be the proceeds from sale of proprietary NTL products.

The principal terms of the licensing agreement are:

·     NTLSZ will lend RMB3.0 million to GYCIC ("the Loan") to provide working capital to establish NTL products and services in the five shops in Guangzhou, China that are operated by GYCIC.

·     Term of the Loan will be two years.

·     GYCIC will pay NTLSZ royalty fees of RMB100k per month for 16 months from commencement of the Loan.

·     The Loan will be secured on the assets of GYCIC.

·     At any time between 1st January 2014 and 30th June 2014, NTLSZ will have the option, at its sole discretion, to call upon 50% of the total issued and unissued share capital of GYCIC, in satisfaction of the Loan.

·     During the same period, and at its sole discretion, NTLSZ shall have the right to acquire the remaining 50% of the total issued and unissued share capital of GYCIC for a consideration in cash or in NTLG shares at their then-current mid-market price. 

·     The total consideration will be four times the net profit of GYCIC in 2013 having added back licence fees for the year amounting to RMB 1.2 million.

Lawrence Cheung, finance director of NTLG commented: 

"This agreement, which follows the opening in September of two shops in Shenzhen, gives us a firm foothold in south China and is another successful step in NTLG's strategy of continuously developing its place in the lucrative China market as a whole.

"Guangzhou is the biggest city in South China with a population of around 13 million. It is a leading commercial and manufacturing region - recently named one of the country's 'Megacities'. Its culture is similar to that of Hong Kong, another area with many followers of Feng Shui.  However, related products and services are somewhat limited in the south of China and NTL is positioning itself to satisfy the so-far-unmet need for them."
