SHENZHEN, China, March 19, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Uni Core Holdings Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: UCHC), a Hong Kong based holding company, today introduces Shaanxi Prosperous Agriculture Company Limited's ("Prosperous Agriculture"), one of UCHC's subsidiaries, strategy for expansion of its agricultural resources chain channel to cover the entire nation of China.
Prosperous Agriculture is headquartered in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, China. Prosperous Agriculture manufactures and distributes three agricultural brands: "XiDuoFeng", a biological fertilizer series that expands the utilization rate of conventional fertilizers, enhances quality of crops, and increases production with a bio-microbial agent produced by a proprietary bio-technology; "Urea-Extra", a long-lasting nitrogenous fertilizer series that increases the utilization rate of traditional nitrogenous fertilizer by more than 50%; and "Sirius" compound fertilizer series. Prosperous Agriculture has established a national agricultural resources chain direct sales platform through the opening and acquiring of agricultural resources direct sales outlets and dealers, and by working with well-known manufacturers of agricultural products. Prosperous Agriculture integrated more than 2,000 agricultural resources sales outlets, located in areas including Shaanxi, Henan, Shandong, Hebei, Shanxi, Gansu, Ningxia and Xinjiang.
Prosperous Agriculture plans to open at least 10 additional direct sales chain stores this year. UCHC believes that when these 10 additional stores are fully operational, the annual sales may reach a turnover of RMB15 million (around US$2.4 million) with a profit of about RMB3 million (around US$480,000). However, there can be no assurance that the sales and profits are actually achieved. Furthermore, Prosperous Agriculture plans to open at least 9 direct sales chain stores through training and integrating all levels of distributors across all provinces of China.
Mr. Wang Fei, General Manager of Prosperous Agriculture, said: "The agricultural market in China is already RMB 1 trillion. The traditional and out-dated wholesale-type sales channels can no longer meet the market demand. Prosperous Agriculture intends to transform the current traditional 3-tier wholesale model to a one-stop direct sales chain mode, by establishing additional owned direct sales chain stores and by implementing training of distributors. Stores will either be acquired or invited to join the direct sales chain system of Prosperous Agriculture as co-operatives, in order to achieve national coverage rapidly."
