  • China MediaExpress (CCME) Inks Three Long-term Agreements, Expanding Advertising Network
    China MediaExpress Holdings Inc. (“CME”), the largest television advertising operator on inter-city and airport express buses in China, yesterday announced the signing of three new long-term agreements with unnamed media companies, which will add a total of 774 express buses to its network.

    “These new contracts have further expanded our airport express bus network which now includes eight of China’s largest airports in terms of passengers. … In addition, for the inter-city bus market, we have increased our presence in the province of Henan. We entered the province in September 2010 with an agreement for 986 inter-city buses. With this agreement and one in November for 635 inter-city buses, our network in Henan province encompasses more than 2,200 inter-city buses,” CME founder and CEO Zheng Cheng stated in the press release.

    CME signed an agreement with a media company to purchase exclusive rights to provide entertainment programming and paid advertising on 623 inter-city express buses in the Henan province. The five-year agreement calls for CME to pay the media company a one-time fee to acquire the operating rights, as well as pay a fixed monthly concession fee to the bus operator with an annual increment of 15%.

    The second agreement is with a media company in which CME will purchase the exclusive rights to provide entertainment programming and paid advertising on 101 airport buses in the Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport in the Sichuan Province. Per the terms of the four-year contract, CME will pay a one-time fee for the acquisition of the operating rights in addition to a fixed monthly concession fee with an annual increment of 10% to 30%.

    The third agreement, also with another media company, allows for CME to purchase exclusive rights to provide entertainment programming and paid advertising on 50 airport buses at the Shijiazhuang Zhengding International Airport. Per the three-year project, CME will pay the company a one-time acquisition fee in addition to a fixed monthly concession fee with an annual increment of 15%.

  • EGPI Firecreek, Inc. (EFIR.OB) Makes a Bold Move into Solar Thermal with the Acquisition of Arctic Solar Engineering
    EGPI Firecreek, – the oil and gas developer with proficiencies in the DOT construction and intelligent traffic system markets that is also aggressively targeting alternative energy, reported entry into a binding letter of intent yesterday whereby the Company will acquire privately held solar thermal supplier/integrator, Arctic Solar Engineering, LLC (ASE).

    Superior product-space acumen and the capacity to ingeniously design energy saving systems which employ proven/patented solar thermal technology developed over three decades ago by Daimler Aerospace is what separates ASE from the competition.

    The ability to reduce energy consumption by up to 70% is something that the St. Louis, Missouri-based ASE is very proud of being able to offer and the underlying technology represents a sustainable, efficient and cost-effective method.

    Solar collectors designed by ASE capture light energy at 90% efficiency, employing a heat pipe design and storing the energy in water (or some other cheap medium), then directly using that heated medium to heat spaces, heat other water or even cool spaces.

    It may seem incredible without understanding just how much energy this really is, but quantification by the US DOE clearly indicates that for domestic commercial/residential structures, the figure accounts for 70% of all energy used.

    The ASE solar thermal systems are unique in the local market with zero direct competition, making ASE a very solid move by EFIR for tapping into what is a rapidly developing aspect of the alternative energy space.

    Massive growth in the demand for alternative energy sources, combined with the superior usability of the technology for a majority of heating/cooling needs and the absence of any real national competition in the form of systems which can achieve the same results, makes ASE a very attractive asset for EFIR and the Company’s shareholders.

    Being able to promise typical ratios for savings of over 10:1 is a huge selling point and the combination of ASE’s proficiency in solar thermal, with EFIR’s energy and engineering expertise, will result in the ability to offer customers a complete turnkey solution for commercial solar that uses no conventional inputs.

    CEO of EFIR, Dennis R. Alexander, projects that the Company will have the largest installed solar thermal systems in the Midwest and quite possibly the entire country, capable of 5-year payback and requiring absolutely no federal incentive/support.

    Alexander stated a late January date for finalization of the acquisition and called the move a “game changer” that will propel EFIR into 2011 with huge momentum in customer base expansion, citing current revenue projections of $2M for 2011 by ASE alone.

    CEO of ASE concluded by asseverating his colleague’s comments/attitude about the deal, adding that the combined force of ASE and EFIR will likely produce breakthroughs neither party has yet envisioned.
