SHENZHEN, China, Jan. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SGOCO Group, Ltd. (Nasdaq: SGOC) ("SGOCO" or the "Company"), a company focused on product design, distribution and brand development in the Chinese display and computer product market, today announced that BOCA International Limited ("BOCA"), the Company's recently-acquired subsidiary, has signed a long-term, primary and exclusive agency agreement with Macau Jinyi Technology Co., Ltd ("Macau Jinyi"). Under the terms of the agreement, BOCA authorized Macau Jinyi to exclusively develop and marketing the BOCA branded energy saving and environmental protection products and technologies in Macau, China.
Macau Jinyi is an affiliate of Macau Far East International Group which is a real-estate developer in Macau. As an important part of Macau Far East, Macau Jinyi is currently promoting its electric tour bus plan to Macau government and local casinos and resorts in an endeavor to replace the traditional buses and thus reduce the carbon-dioxide emission and improve the air quality in Macau. This is a niche market for SGOCO to generate sizable revenue.
BOCA collaborates Macau Jinyi in the development of a cooling and heating system that is an energy saving and environmentally friendly technology which could massively reduce the pollution emission at hotels and commercial buildings as well as cut down the expense on electricity. To date, BOCA provided the technology to various clients like government administration buildings, hospitals, resorts, shopping malls and indoor infrastructure. According to preliminary statistics, some large resorts spent $100-150 million to pay their electricity bills annually and BOCA saves more than 30% on energy expenditures with its advanced technology. The lifetime of the product is 15 years and then they can be recycled which provides economic benefits.
SGOCO could generate a total estimated value of at least $77 million in revenue within the next 3 years by providing services to casinos and resorts, government buildings and shopping malls in Macau.
Regarding the acquisition of BOCA, Mr. Shi-Bin Xie, Chief Executive Officer of SGOCO, commented, "We achieved initial results at the business transformation level and the company will continue to up its head to the energy saving and environmental protection target."
