Shiner International Announces Acquisition Of Water-Based Coatings Manufacturer

HAIKOU, China, May 2, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Shiner International, Inc. (NASDAQ: BEST) ("Shiner" or the "Company"), an emerging global supplier of packaging solutions for food, tobacco, and consumer products, today announced that it has acquired 100% of the stock of Shimmer Sun Ltd. ("Shimmer") for $3.2 million in cash. The acquisition gives Shiner a 65% controlling interest in Shimmer's subsidiary company, Ningbo Neisuoer Latex Co., Ltd. ("Ningbo Neisuoer"). Ningbo Neisuoer is a recognized leader in the field of specialty water-based coatings, which are used to produce advanced coated films.

Based in Ningbo, the capital of Zhejiang Province, Ningbo Neisuoer was founded in 2007 and employs approximately 35 staff. Its R&D team was issued the only patent for polyvinylidene chloride, a coating polymer widely used in food packaging, in China. Ningbo Neisuoer expects 2011 sales to be approximately 35 million RMB ( $5.3 million USD) with a 35% gross margin.

Water-based coatings are more environmentally friendly than oil-based coatings and offer superior moisture-barrier properties for packaging dry foods and other moisture-sensitive products without compromising the efficiency of the packaging production line.

"Ningbo Neisuoer has a solid reputation for producing advanced, high-quality coatings. The synergies between the Company and Ningbo Neisuoer will bring real benefits to our valued customers and demonstrate our continued commitment to technological excellence," stated Qingtao Xing, President and CEO of Shiner. "This acquisition will enable us to lower our raw material costs and further expand our production capacity. Shiner is seeking vertical integration opportunities that help us deliver new and innovative packaging products to better serve our customers worldwide. This acquisition is an important step in that regard."
