SHENZHEN, China, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Uni Core Holdings Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: "UCHC"), a Hong Kong based holding company, reports the update of their farm business, Shaanxi Prosperous Agriculture Company Limited ("Prosperous Agriculture"), and the paper business, APT Paper Group ("APT"), both UCHC's subsidiaries.

Prosperous Agriculture

After Mr. Thomas Lee, COO of UCHC, went to Tokyo and worked out all the terms and conditions of the JV with the Korean mining owner, JEWON, the first lot of "Goldlite" (Phyllite), a total of 400 tons with the market sales value of US$1.52 million, was shipped to Luxi Chemical to manufacture the new fertilizer for Prosperous Agriculture.

Mr. Thomas Lee and the representative of JEWON shall visit Prosperous Agriculture in Xian from March 10 to 12 to work out the increasing supply volume of "Goldlite" and the strategy of Prosperous Agriculture to expedite sales and to eventually extend its distribution network to cover the southern part of China. The estimated demand is at least 10,000 tons to 15,000 tons in 2013.

The summary of the 3 years forecast of Prosperous Agriculture, 51% owned by UCHC, is follows:








Growth Rate



Net Profit




% to Sales





The Shenzhen Factory of APT is still in the process of being closed down. Suzhou Factory is not optimistic and may have to be closed down eventually since it is not the objective of the Board of Directors of UCHC to have a business with continuous loss.

The performance of Qingdao Factory is exceeding expectations under the supervision of a new manager-in-charge, hired from October 2012.

However, the UCHC management will not hesitate to close down all the factories if they fail to deliver positive results, as the Board believes that UCHC's performance will not be adversely affected with all the preparation already done and reflected in the recent 10Q report filing to SEC.

The Future of UCHC

Although APT's performance is still uncertain, UCHC management believes that the future profit of UCHC will come from the new JV between Prosperous Agriculture and JEWON. UCHC management further believes that the other applications of phyllite from Korea, such as "water purification" and "decontamination of nuclear pollution", will contribute to an even bigger and more profitable business.

Currently, China is facing issues of water and soil pollution every day. Japan's Government is planning to officially order phyllite to fight against water and soil pollutions. Upon receipt of official work orders from the Japanese government, together with the results of the tests already done in Japan on the functions and effectiveness of phyllite, UCHC management believes that phyllite shall be introduced into the China market to help tackle similar population issues soon.

The Board of Directors of UCHC is optimistic about the future of UCHC and will from time to time release related information to the public.
