HONG KONG, Dec. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cleantech Solutions International, Inc. ("Cleantech Solutions" or "the Company") ("CLNT") (Nasdaq: CLNT) today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, EC Technology & Innovations Limited ("ECTI"), has entered into a sale and purchase agreement ("agreement") with the major shareholders of 3D Discovery Co. Limited ("3D Discovery"), to acquire a 60% interest in the issued share capital of 3D Discovery for consideration of HK$3.0 million, which shall be satisfied by the allotment and issuance of 68,610 unregistered shares of the Company at a price of $5.606 per share.
Michael Ho, co-founder of 3D Discovery commented, "3D Discovery will join the CLNT group as a core member of the 3D technology sector. We believe CLNT's resources, along with our expertise, will provide a solid foundation to develop and promote 3D technology related businesses. Our vision is that our 360 virtual tour mobile app will become the ideal medium for sharing and experiencing space."
"3D Discovery's scanning and modeling technology is already being used by some of Hong Kong's leading property agencies to provide their clients with a truly immersive, first-hand experience of a physical space while saving them time and money," said Parkson Yip, COO of Cleantech Solutions. "We look forward to working with them to develop a mobile virtual space solution that can be deployed to the real estate market very rapidly. We expect this easy-to-use and affordable marketing tool to have broad appeal in industries such as hospitality, real estate, and tourism.
"According to Goldman Sachs, the Real Estate virtual reality ("VR") industry is predicted to reach US$2.6 billion in 2025, supported by a potential user base of over 1.4 million registered real estate agents in some of the world's largest markets. Real Estate VR technologies allow buyers and renters to almost 'feel' the property and help them to really understand what living there would be like. The 3D Discovery virtual space solution is unique in that it does not require the heavy 3D headset most other solutions are using. Users can simply walk through the 3D virtual space on both desktop and mobile platforms and access the information anywhere, anytime," Mr. Yip concluded.
