Zoom Technologies Announces Sale Of China-Based Operations And Strategy To Acquire U.S.-Based Businesses

Stocks in this article: ZOOM

The final closing of the sale of the above-mentioned subsidiaries of the Company is anticipated to take place within the first quarter of 2013 with the exception of Profit Harvest which closing occurred as of December 31, 2012. In addition, the Company will, through Portables Unlimited, LLC, its U.S. based subsidiary, continue to operate the exclusive wholesale distributor business for T-Mobile products and services in the United States.

The Company intends to use the cash proceeds from the sale of the assets to acquire similar businesses in the U.S. to further expand its activities there, including but not limited to the acquisition of additional licensed retail stores that service T-Mobile USA.

Zoom's Chairman & CEO, Mr. Leo Gu stated, "Our strategy is a simple one. We will focus our resources to capture revenues from U.S. based operations, which we started over a year ago by our acquisition of Portables Unlimited in New York. With this sale, our revenues will be predominantly generated from our U.S. operations. The selling of our China based operations doesn't mean that we are out of touch with China because we can always contract with our former subsidiaries, when the need arises going forward. We feel that it is important to listen to the market which has not been favorable Chinese companies listed in the U.S., and we are confident that the combination of our continued relationships in China and the expansion of our U.S. activities is a positive direction for Zoom Technologies. We are actively seeking synergistical businesses to bring into Zoom and adding on more licensed retail stores of T-Mobile USA is a part of this plan."
