Dragon Capital Group Corp. (DRGV) and the Chinese Boom in PLCs

Monday, September 23rd, 2013

Since 1978, and especially since around 1990, when reformers in the Chinese government began the bold process of dismantling a generation’s worth of burdensome state economic regulations and controls, opening the door to private ownership and entrepreneurship, China has experienced one of the biggest economic and productivity booms in recorded history. It’s a clear testament to the inherent power of a free economy, marred only by the occasional, if dramatic, flaws of residual government meddling.

Viewed from the outside, it’s tempting to think of the Chinese boom simply in terms of more cars and bigger buildings. But it’s all under-pinned by a world of less conspicuous though no less important technological and infrastructural developments, exposing opportunities which global investors are beginning to target as the best way to ride the Chinese wave.

One of these foundational areas of development in China is the fast growing PLC market. PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers) are basically specialized computers for controlling electromechanical systems, applied to the automation of factories, utilities, and just about anything else you can find in an industrialized society. The massive surge in the Chinese economy over the past decade has fed a huge demand for PLCs, and the Chinese market is now approaching nearly $1½ billion, with a continued double-digit growth rate.

Dragon Capital Group acts as a unique conduit between Western investors and the Chinese industrial and consumer market, and the company’s Yazheng subsidiary is an important supplier of utility controls for China’s growing cities. Recently, Yazheng was selected by the Chinese government as one of the participants in a national science and technology research project focusing on the application of safe and large-scale PLCs. With a total estimated R&D cost of approximately 20 million RMB ($3 million U.S.), this project is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2013 and last through 2015.

Dragon Capital Group Corp. (DRGV) Leverages Chinese Subsidiary Portfolio to Continue Revenue Growth Trend

Monday, September 16th, 2013

Dragon Capital Group is structured as a bridge connecting Chinese high-growth companies and Western investors, and accordingly has established a portfolio of diversified high-tech companies operating in China. The company’s current focus is on the rapidly growing wireless 3G-based applications and business solutions markets, where two of its subsidiaries have emerged as respective leading providers in China.

DRGV also provides its subsidiaries with critical support in key areas of business: consulting, coordination of joint ventures, access to capital, merger & acquisition, business valuation, and revenue growth strategies.

In its most recent second quarter, DRGV posted total revenues of $5.0 million compared to revenues of $4.7 million recorded in the second quarter of the year prior, reflecting strength in sales of office equipment at the Shanghai Zhaoli Technology Development subsidiary.

DRGV management expects continued sales growth stemming from the scheduled second-half software launches at its Shanghai Yazheng Information Technology and Shanghai Zhiye subsidiaries.

Yazheng offers gas line monitoring software designed to optimize the efficiency and repair of utility gas lines, and was recently awarded government sponsorship to for funding the development of its Metropolitan Gas Pipeline Risk Valuation System, which is based off its Gas Information System project.

Zhiye offers mobile solutions for Android, Windows Mobile, and Apple’s iOS and is currently developing a mobile programming solutions platform that would enable application developers to easily and efficiently develop and modify applications, such as game, utility, and payment for different types of smartphones, to work across the most popular mobile operating systems in China.

Dragon Capital Group (DRGV) Reports Unaudited 461% Net Income Growth, Promising Subsidiary Developments

Monday, September 9th, 2013

Undervalued companies are abundant in the small-cap space, but fundamentals are still at the forefront. Leading Chinese emerging high-tech holding company Dragon Capital Group Corp. was created to function as a conduit between Western investors and high-growth companies in China.

Serving as an incubator of high-tech Chinese companies, Dragon’s present focus is developing applications and business solutions based on wireless 3G. Of businesses the company has acquired, two are among China’s leading providers of mobile Internet applications and business solutions.

Unaudited quarterly financials show that Dragon’s net income alone has increased more than 461%, as compared with the same period ending March 31, 2012, with cash and cash equivalents of $402,756. The company’s current total assets grew by $184,000 between December 2012 and March 2013, primarily due to increased inventories, prepaid expenses, and other current assets. Since it pulled back to lows of $0.002 in early May, Dragon has rebounded by more than 75% to two-month highs of $0.0039. A shockwave from current attention placed on U.S.-listed Chinese stocks has now been felt in the OTC, and sentiment in the market could be growing stronger.

Dragon’s focus lies in its technology subsidiaries, and the company’s management estimates a substantial contribution to bottom line performance in 2013. The company’s Shanghai Zhiye Software Development Company subsidiary, acquired in December 2012, provides mobile solutions for Android, Windows Mobile, and Apple’s iOS. Zhiye has been developing a mobile programming solutions platform that will allow application developers in China to easily and efficiently develop and modify applications to work across China’s most popular mobile operating systems.

Corresponding with its technology focus, Dragon additionally anticipates that the 2013 year will mark the full marketing launch of the Gas GIS system from its Shanghai Yazheng Information Technology Company subsidiary. Yazheng’s software team has been developing an innovative monitoring software over the past two years. The Gas GIS system’s main task is monitoring gas lines, analyzing emergency repair results, formulating proper system calculations, and forming maintenance and automatic repair response plans. Utilizing this system, companies can collect the most current information to enable location and targeted inspection of potential problems, allowing improved support of emergency repairs and ongoing maintenance efforts.

Dragon Capital Group Corp. (DRGV) Subsidiary Chosen to Participate in National Science and Technology Research Project

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

Dragon Capital Group, a leading holding company of emerging high-tech companies in China, today announced that its Shanghai Yazheng Information Technology Company (“Yazheng”) subsidiary has been selected by the Chinese Central Government as one of the participants in a national science and technology research project focusing on the application of safe and large-scale programmable logic controllers (PLC’s). With a total estimated R&D cost of approximately 20 million RMB ($3 million U.S.), this project is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2013 and last through 2015.

As China continues to accelerate the process of industrialization and automation, more and more companies are attempting to expand the scale of production. Productions facilities with multiple parameters, high risk and full automation features are being deployed across a wide array of industries including energy, transportation, manufacturing, aerospace, and chemical production. As a result, market demand for high-end safety control products is growing rapidly throughout China.

The current overall PLC market is estimated to be approximately 6-7 million RMB annually with the market for large-scale PLC’s including large industrial plant control systems, safety interlock systems, safety instrumented systems, and high-end security control systems representing about 30% or 2 billion RMB. This market, which is expected to experience a better than 10% annual growth rate, has been mainly dominated by large foreign corporations. Projects like this are being sponsored by the government to foster domestic development of high-end control systems to enable China based companies to capture a much larger percentage of this fast growing market. The participants in this project will be able to utilize technologies developed through this government assistance to design practical applications for future commercialization.

Mr. Lawrence Wang, Chairman and CEO of Dragon Capital Group, stated, “We are very pleased to have been selected by the Central Government for this project as a result of our automation work in the utility industry. With the government essentially subsidizing the R&D efforts of the participants, we have the unique opportunity to enter large scale markets in the future. This will also help us add further functionality to our current monitoring systems as we continue to deploy and gain market share. We will continue to support Yazheng in their efforts to build this important business segment for the future growth of Dragon Capital.”

Dragon Capital Group Corp. (DRGV) Opens the Door to China

Tuesday, August 20th, 2013

It’s no news that China’s explosive entry onto the world economic stage has been historic. Since serious economic reforms began in China back in the late 1970s, gradually introducing and supporting market-oriented policies and private ownership, China has become the fastest growing major economy in the world. The mix of even marginal capitalism with over 1.3 billion people was unprecedented, and soon caused economic waves around the world as the business potential represented by this revolution began to be recognized.

Today China is already the world’s second biggest economy, and stands to surpass the U.S. in a number of measures. It has been a high-speed economic transition like no other in history, offering investment opportunities for businesses and individuals like never before.

But investment in China was soon recognized to carry risks. An economy as large as China’s, and still growing rapidly, can lead to unexpected turbulence as new money crashes against old institutions and older traditions. Growth and change on such a scale would be problematic in any environment, but China, with its bureaucratic political system and still developing economic infrastructure, poses special challenges. China is, after all, not the West.

All of this represents opportunity for Dragon Capital Group, a company that has learned how to serve as an effective conduit between fast-growing Chinese companies and Western investors. To developing Chinese companies, Dragon provides support in the critical functions of general business consulting, formation of joint ventures, access to capital, merger & acquisition, business valuation, and revenue growth strategies. To investors, Dragon represents a more secure and promising access to what some are calling the Chinese economic miracle.

Dragon operates through 6 subsidiaries in China, with a special focus on the technology market, including the development of wireless applications and business solutions. Two companies that Dragon has already acquired are among the leading providers of mobile applications and business software in China. In short, Dragon aims to emerge as a significant force in the high-tech sector of China.

Dragon Capital Group Corp. (DRGV) Selected by Shanghai City North Gas Company for Gas Valve Grouping Project

Tuesday, August 6th, 2013

Dragon Capital Group, a leading holding company of emerging high-tech companies in China, today announced that Shanghai City North Gas Company, Ltd. has chosen its Shanghai Yazheng Information Technology Company (“Yazheng”) subsidiary to carry out a gas valve grouping system project based on Yazheng’s ARC/INFO Gas Information System.

The project is designed to improve the overall efficiency of a portion of Shanghai City North’s gas pipeline network. Its main focus is on setting up and optimizing the grouping of the valve network in order to reduce the number of customers affected by any pipe network failure and to quickly determine the need for specific repair and maintenance so that expenses can be significantly reduced.

Yazheng’s management believes that after years of development it has made a significant breakthrough in gas pipeline management with its Gas Information System. The modeling of optimum valve configuration coupled with the GIS monitoring can significantly reduce outages and proactively target maintenance to reduce incidences of breakdowns in the network. Yazheng is committed to the rollout of GIS throughout China and eventually to other countries as it looks to secure a leading position in this area.

Mr. Lawrence Wang, Chairman and CEO of Dragon Capital Group, stated, “We are very pleased to have been selected by Shanghai City North to provide Yazheng’s GIS to optimize their gas pipeline network. While this initial project is narrow in its scope, it represents a significant first step in the rollout of this important software. We believe projects of this nature will validate the utility of our system and lead to larger and more expansive projects throughout China as well as in other countries. Maximizing the efficiencies of these networks is critical as utility companies search for ways to reduce costs to defray the costs of rising energy prices. We look forward to building GIS into a highly profitable source of revenue for Dragon Capital in the coming years for the benefit of our stockholders.”
