HONG KONG, Feb. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ - ASIA PACIFIC BOILER CORPORATION (OTCQB: PADR) ("Asia Pacific" or the "Company") on February 14, 2014 entered into a letter of intent regarding our proposed acquisition of Million Place Investments Limited. ("Million Place"), a BVI corporation.  Million Place holds an option to purchase up to 51% of Inner Mongolia Yulong Pump Production Co. Ltd. ("Yulong Pump"), a PRC corporation engaged in the production and sale of industrial boilers.  To date, Million Place has completed the acquisition of 49% of Yulong Pump.

On its part, Yulong Pump has secured a commitment for its purchase of Hohhot Devotion Boiler Ltd. ("Devotion Boiler") by July 2014. Together, Devotion Boiler and Yulong Pump are concurrently planning to begin construction in March 2014 of a new state of the art Boiler manufacturing factory with a planned investment of approximately US$250 million.  The companies intend to commence staffing and training of the new boiler plant employees concurrently with the start of construction. Yulong Pump and Devotion Boiler will also seek to rezone for commercial and residential use industrial land owned by Devotion Boiler in Inner Mongolia. It is anticipated that successful rezoning will result in up to a 500% increase in value of the property, which is currently valued at an estimated RMB300 million (approximately US$49,600,000).

The parties have already made significant progress with their due diligence in anticipation of the LOI, and we anticipate that the audits of Million Place and Yulong Pump will be completed by the end March, 2014. Auditing of Devotion Boiler will follow with completion anticipated prior to July, 2014.   Provided that audit results are satisfactory, we aim to establish parameters for a definitive agreement well ahead of the March 31, 2014 deadline provided in the LOI. With view toward financing the proposed transaction the Company is in the process of securing a standby line of credit in the amount of US$300 million.
