Company Says $8M Acquisition Accretive in 2006
LOS ANGELES and SHENZHEN, China, June 30, 2006 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- China Digital Communication Group (OTC Bulletin Board: CHID), one of the fastest growing battery components manufacturers in China, announced today that it has completed the acquisition of Galaxy View International, Ltd., which operates through its wholly owned subsidiary Sono Digital Electronic Technologies Co., Ltd., a leading supplier of third-generation (3G) communications technology and equipment in China, in a cash and stock transaction valued at approximately $8 million.
In 2005, Galaxy View had unaudited revenues of $6 million and unaudited net income of $2 million.
China Digital acquired all of the outstanding shares of privately held Galaxy View for $3 million in cash and 7,575,757 unregistered shares of China Digital preferred stock valued at approximately $5 million.
China Digital CEO Ran Liang, said, "The acquisition of Galaxy View and its wholly owned subsidiary, Sono Digital, positions us to become a competitor in the new rapidly evolving 3G technology communications industry. China is active in the worldwide technological shift to 3G technologies, which allows for data transmission, e-mail and instant messaging. We believe that the acquisition will positively impact our 2006 financial performance. For China Digital, this marks the beginning of a strategic transformation to become a manufacturer of high-tech products and technologies to 3G communication systems wireless providers."
Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, Galaxy View shareholders agreed to a lock-up provision restricting the resale of their shares for a five-year period. Each preferred share entitles the holder to seven votes per share on all matters to be voted on by the shareholders and will be mandatorily convertible into one share of common stock after five years.
According to U.S. GAAP rules, China Digital will report revenue and net income from Galaxy View commencing upon the closing date of the acquisition. Estimated diluted EPS, assuming that the Galaxy View acquisition closes at the beginning of July 2006, is projected to be $0.09. China Digital estimates revenues at $19.3 million and net income at $5.8 million.
Assuming that the acquisition had taken place at the beginning of the year at January 1, 2006, the pro forma diluted EPS is projected at $0.11, revenues at $21.9 million and net income at $6.9 million for the year ended December 31, 2006.
The company emphasizes that the foregoing statements regarding projections for 2006 are forward-looking, and actual results may differ materially. These are the company's targets, not predictions of actual performance.
