Asia Packaging Executes Definitive Agreement to Acquire Yuanxing Package China

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/29/12 -- Further to the announcement made by Asia Packaging Group Inc. (TSX VENTURE:APX) (the "Company") on June 7, 2012, the Company is pleased to announce that it has executed a Share Purchase Agreement (the "Purchase Agreement") to acquire the operating business of Yuanxing Package (China) Co., Ltd. ("Yuanxing China") through the acquisition (the "Acquisition") of all of the issued and outstanding share capital of Jiayuan Investment Ltd. ("Jiayuan"). Jiayuan is a BVI holding company that owns all of the issued and outstanding share capital of Yuanxing Holding (Hong Kong) Ltd. ("Yuanxing HK"), which owns all of the issued and outstanding share capital of Yuanxing China.

The terms of the Purchase Agreements were different from the letter of intent (the "LOI") that the Company announced on June 6, 2012. Under the Purchase Agreement,


--  the Company will only purchase Jiayuan, Yuanxing HK and Yuanxing China
    and not Yuanxing Package (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. (which was originally
    contemplated in the LOI);
      
--  The purchase price of Yuanxing HK and Yuanxing China will be $48
    million, payable as follows:
      
    --  issuance, at closing, of 60,000,000 shares of the Company at a
        deemed price of $0.40 per share for payment and satisfaction of $24
        million at the closing time;
          
    --  payment of cash of $6 million at closing;
          
    --  a note payable to the vendors in the face amount of $18 million,
        which is subject to adjustments as described below, to be paid on
        the date that is one year after the closing date, which obligation
        will be evidenced by delivery of a promissory note of the Company;
          
    --  if the net income of Yuanxing China for the fiscal year ending
        December 31, 2012, as presented in its audited financial statements,
        is lower than RMB 80,000,000, the $18 million payable by the Company
        will be reduced by the amount that is equal to the Canadian dollar
        equivalent of the difference between (a) the net income of Yuanxing
        China for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2012 and (b) RMB
        80,000,000.
          
--  Completion of the proposed acquisition of Yuanxing HK and Yuanxing China
    will NOT be conditioned on any concurrent financing by the Company. The
    Company will pay the cash portion of the purchase price from the cash it
    currently has in its treasury; and
      
--  The Company will not make any changes to its current Board of Directors
    or members of management. 

Given the above payment terms and given that the acquisition no longer includes Yuanxing Suzhou, this Acquisition no longer represent a Reverse Takeover transaction as defined under Policy 5.2 of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). However, the Exchange has requested that the Company obtain approval of the Acquisition from disinterested shareholders and a sponsorship report for the Acquisition. The Company is currently working with Canaccord Genuity Corp. on the sponsorship report and also plans to obtain shareholders' approval by way of written consents from those shareholders who are unaffiliated with Mr. Wenge Hong, the Chairman, CEO and a director of the Company, and the vendors. Completion of the Acquisition is subject to, among other conditions, the following conditions:


1.  the receipt of all necessary regulatory, corporate and third party
    approvals, including the approval of the Exchange, and compliance with
    all applicable regulatory requirements and conditions in connection with
    the Acquisition; and
      
2.  the receipt of approval from disinterested shareholders of the Company. 

The closing date of the Acquisition is scheduled to be 10 business days following the satisfaction or waiver of the condition precedents contained in the Purchase Agreement, but in any event no later than December 31, 2012, or such later date as mutually agreed upon by the Company and Yuanxing Packaging.

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example t...

One of the biggest challenges when developing connected devices is identifying user value and delivering it through successful user experiences. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kuniavsky, Principal Scientist, Innovation Services at PARC, described an IoT-specific approach to user experience design that combines approaches from interaction design, industrial design and service design to create experiences that go beyond simple connected gadgets to create lasting, multi-device experiences grounded in people's real needs and desires.
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies.

These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...
The Domain Name Service (DNS) is one of the most important components in networking infrastructure, enabling users and services to access applications by translating URLs (names) into IP addresses (numbers). Because every icon and URL and all embedded content on a website requires a DNS lookup loading complex sites necessitates hundreds of DNS queries. In addition, as more internet-enabled ‘Things' get connected, people will rely on DNS to name and find their fridges, toasters and toilets. According to a recent IDG Research Services Survey this rate of traffic will only grow. What's driving t...
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems at Red Hat, described how to revolutioniz...
Bit6 today issued a challenge to the technology community implementing Web Real Time Communication (WebRTC). To leap beyond WebRTC’s significant limitations and fully leverage its underlying value to accelerate innovation, application developers need to consider the entire communications ecosystem.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
