Huipu is a leading developer and manufacturer of customized LCD/LED multi-screen display systems in China and is the holder of numerous technology patents, trademarks, certifications and licenses. Huipu's products are manufactured at its production facilities in China and are sold through a network of distributors nationwide. Its customers are represented in a wide variety of industries, including the public security, government, trade, media, transportation and tourism industries. CIST expects that the acquisition of Huipu will strengthen its distribution channels in regions where both CIST and Huipu have a presence. Upon completion of the acquisition, CIST will add an additional 5 cities to its distribution network, bringing the total number of cities in which it has a presence to 31.
CIST plans to add Huipu's LCD/LED multi-screen display systems and technology to the Company's current Digital Light Processing ("DLP") product line that is currently sold for use in various central command centers in China. The command centers are the heart of various central coordination efforts and are where high-level decisions are made. Each command center has a large display wall, using DLP and/or LCD/LED product lines, where all resources can be monitored in real-time.
In addition, CIST expects that the addition of Huipu's products and technology to its portfolio will enable the Company to provide more comprehensive and competitively priced solutions to accommodate a variety of city budgets in its PGIS market, as well as capture additional market opportunities presented by Phase II of China's Golden Shield Project ("the Project"). The Project's goal is to upgrade the level of police-use technology and enhance the quick response capabilities for public emergencies.
CIST also plans to leverage Huipu's technology to offer a more fully integrated digital hospital solution to customers. For example, the combination of Huipu's products and technology with the Company's digital hospital solutions will enable the Company to provide mission critical turn-key software development, systems integration and quality-assurance hardware to supply customers in the Digital Hospital markets.
"We are pleased with the prospect of acquiring Huipu," said Mr. Jiang Huai Lin, CIST's CEO. "We expect that the acquisition will enhance our competitiveness by enabling us to offer more integrated products and services at different price levels, increase our cross- and up-sell opportunities and extend our geographic reach. We also plan to take advantage of Huipu's domestic and international distribution network, solid reputation and strong client base, to enhance our presence in the GIS and Digital Hospital markets."
