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 Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

There are several IoTs: the Industrial Internet, Consumer Wearables, Wearables and Healthcare, Supply Chains, and the movement toward Smart Grids, Cities, Regions, and Nations. There are competing communications standards every step of the way, a bewildering array of sensors and devices, and an entire world of competing data analytics platforms. To some this appears to be chaos. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate a...

In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed cloud as a ‘better data center’ and how it adds new capacity (faster) and improves application availability (redundancy). The cloud is a ‘Dynamic Tool for Dynamic Apps’ and resource allocation is an integral part of your application architecture, so use only the resources you need and allocate /de-allocate resources on the fly.

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era. However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.
