Universal Travel Group (UTVG.OB) Secures Financing to Propel It’s China Growth Plans

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

Travel services company Universal Travel Group, Inc. (OTCBB: UTVG) has closed a $7.11 million financing deal with investors. The private placement financing totaled 4.8 million shares at a purchase price of $1.55 per share.

The money will be used for general corporate development, with specific attention relating to online integration. A news release says investing companies were those familiar with China investment opportunities, including Chinamerica Fund LP, Access America Fund, Pope Investments II LLC, Heller Capital, and Investment Hunter, LLC.

”Given the value of other public travel services providers,” said Christopher Efird of Access America, “we believe that Universal Travel Group is one of the Chinese companies in the space with the most potential to build on its current platform to provide premium services to consumers and build significant franchise value for its shareholders.”

This further interest is on top of a 5-million shares purchase on Aug. 14 from a non-management shareholder by Access America, Chinaamerica, and Pope Investments II.

”After several months of due diligence, including in-depth analysis of the Chinese travel space, we believed this dynamic company was significantly undervalued,” said Beau Johnson of Chinamerica Fund. “We are hopeful that when the investment community at large recognizes that a group of sophisticated institutional investors with successful track records investing in, and supporting Chinese companies have accumulated a meaningful position in UTVG that, over time, shareholder value will rise to intrinsic levels. In addition to acquiring this large block of stock from a single non-management shareholder, we had enough confidence in the Company to place the PIPE financing at a premium to the retail price per share in the open market, something rarely done in our space.”

”We are determined to capture the opportunities presented by the tourism and business travel markets in China and will use the proceeds to fuel our growth initiatives,” said Ms. Jiangping Jiang, Universal Travel Group CEO. ”We are also pleased that such respectable institutional investors have recognized us and placed their confidence in our long-term growth plans.”

In 2007, Universal Travel Group itself completed the acquisitions of Speedy Dragon, specializing in air cargo transportation; Xi’an Golden Net, specializing in travel packaged tours; Shanghai LanBao, specializing in hotel reservation and Foshan Overseas International, a China-based company that handles domestic and international travel inquiries.

Universal Travel Group (UTVG.OB) – Keeping People Moving

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

When it comes to travel, Universal Travel Group (UTVG.OB) gets people going. Trading on the OTCBB, they are an air travel and air-cargo transportation agency in Southern China. Universal travel provides reservations, booking, and domestic and international travel and tourism services throughout the Peoples Republic of China.

With headquarters in Shenzhen, China, Universal Travel Group originally engaged in air-ticketing services. They then integrated cargo agency services, online hotel booking, and packaged tourism services. The company involves themselves in all these activities; however, they are mainly engaged in online travel services through their wholly owned subsidiaries.

They acquired Shenzhen Speedy Dragon Enterprises Ltd., a nationwide cargo logistics company. This subsidiary is in the Pearl River Delta in China. They also acquired Xi’an Golden Net Travel Serve Service Co. Ltd., which focuses on the domestic tourism market. This subsidiary provides air tickets, train tickets, packaged tours, and other services.

Universal Travel’s Shenzhen Yu Zhi Lu Aviation Service Company Ltd is an air travel company. They have a 9,000 square-foot call center. They also have over 100 customer service representatives for air-ticket booking, hotel reservations, packaged tours, and cargo agency services.

The company’s Shanghai Lanbao Travel Service Co. Ltd. subsidiary focuses on booking hotels through their website, www.cba-hotel.com. It is the first company combining the Chinese Characteristic Global Distribution System with the Hotel Distribution System. Customers’ sign on to the CBA website and can then access information from more than 3,000 hotel booking companies, over 200,000 hotels, and thousands of air-tickets companies and travel services companies globally.

Universal Travel Group continues to provide for business and consumer travel needs. They are well prepared for the coming Olympics in the country as well, and the logistics necessary to keep people and cargo traveling smoothly and efficiently. They hope to continue to move the company and their customers forward for many years to come.

Universal Travel Group Inc. (UTVG.OB) Completes Major Acquisitions and Readies for 2008 Beijing Olympic Business

Tuesday, April 22nd, 2008

Serving the travel needs of a mobile world is no small task. Add in all the little subtleties of traveling from one culture to another, and a recipe for disaster is in the mix. Having a system in place that accounts for all the little things is the key. If a company can account for all the little things, profit should flow easily and steadily.

Universal Travel Group Inc., a full service travel operator working primarily with package tours to the Peoples Republic of China, is a Los Angeles base concern with many beneficial and required ties to China. Operating in China holds certain challenges for any business operation. Operating a travel business operation in China requires an even deeper understanding of how the Chinese system operates across many different regions and cultures. Universal Travel Group has this deep appreciation and puts it to good use where foreign travelers are concerned.

The company’s main objective is to become the leading travel services company in China. To move toward this goal, the company completed several acquisitions in 2007. Although the company appears to have come together fairly quickly through acquisition, it has kept pace with revenue growth and net income able to withstand corporate challenges, unusual winter weather and the coming onslaught of the summer Olympics.

Revenues for 2007 were up significantly owing to the multiple acquisitions made by the company. Understanding growth for the year ending December 31, 2007 is a complicated affair, but the company does indicate that revenues came in at $44 million or a 343% increase over the preceding year. Guidance for 2008 appears to indicate a strong year for the company having weathered large snowfalls that shut down much of the company’s routes and preparation plans for the summer Olympics.

Universal Travel Group (UTVG.OB) Has a Business Management Text Book Net revenue Model in Place

Thursday, February 14th, 2008

The stock is certain to catch the attention of every OTC market observer. It is a nearly ideal case of a Los Angeles company operating in Mainland China. The management has earned nearly an 18% net profit margin over the last four quarters and a 72% return on average equity. The stock traded at $2.74 on February 13 2008 against a 52-week low of just $0.75. Obviously, the business deserves a close look.

China business and leisure travel is a wonderful profit formula. It is possible to discern a sequence of management moves that give the company multiple choices in generating highly profitable and rapid growth in this dynamic business environment. It is based in Shenzhen, which is one of the most important growth centers in the country. More than 100 franchised outlets leverage the company’s eight own booking offices fully, to cater to huge demand for domestic and international air travel to and from China.

The company’s services must appeal to Chinese and international customers alike. It has alliances with international airlines of the caliber of Virgin Atlantic, though it is also able to organize ground handling in such elaborate detail as to include restaurant bookings. The company is also in the cargo space, which is a key growth driver in the global economic role that China has forged.

The company has recently undone an acquisition because the concerned travel company failed to meet due diligence objectives. It has also invited significant stock ownership by a Chinese financial institution. 2008 prospects are positive because packaged tours and Internet bookings are set to grow.

StockGuru News: Silver Falcon Mining, Inc. (SFMI): Poorman Mine Tailings Show Significant Recoverable Values

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

Stockpile Processing Begins Spring 2008BRADENTON, FL–(MARKET WIRE)–Nov 30, 2007 — Silver Falcon Mining, Inc. today released the results of an independent sampling study conducted on the Poorman mine’s tailings of War Eagle Mountain, a gold/silver property.

The survey of the waste dumps was performed by D.A. Yeager, and C.K. Ikona, of Pamicon Developments, Ltd. “The dumps were created in the 1800s with ore that was considered low in value and was stockpiled for the day when metal prices were higher. Generally speaking, the cut-off value for ore to be further processed and transported to the refinery was 2 ounces of Gold per ton. The ore that did not meet this requirement was stockpiled. It seems apparent, both from a perusal of the history of the mines and from the results of the preliminary sampling, that the mineral reserves of War Eagle Mountain were by no means exhausted,” wrote Mr. Yeager.

Initial findings estimate that probable recoverable gold and silver metals from the tailings stockpiles could exceed 19,200 Gold oz, and 221,440 Silver oz, or approximately $19 Million gross ore value.

Mr. Pierre Quilliam, President of Silver Falcon Mining, Inc., added, “The tailings stockpiles are a minor part of the overall picture. They do, however, represent a potential short-term source of cash-flow; and could be processed to offset general development costs of the mines on the Mountain. We will begin processing the stockpiles in the spring of 2008.”

He further adds, “War Eagle Mountain’s ore sampling results to date (taken in conjunction with exploratory drilling), and the actual previous production figures, reinforces the opinion that the extensive mineralized fault trend, underlying the nearby DeLamar Mountain and Florida Mountain open-pit mines, clearly extends to War Eagle Mountain.”

Silver Falcon Mining, Inc. is an exploration and development Company specializing in high-grade Gold and Silver mining properties in North America.

Brookstreet and QualityStocks in the Beverly Hilton Hotel

Saturday, January 27th, 2007
I must admit that when I walked into the Beverly Hilton Hotel I was a bit overwhelmed…the hotel was amazing!  The marble floors and smell of the fresh cut flowers in the air was overwhelming…I thought I was in a seen from the Wizard of Oz.

I first met with Luigi Caramico, President and Mario Mene, CTO of Intelligentias – ITLI.  I found out the real story…this company is ready to explode…they have been a “real business” for many years and now the fun begins!

I then met with Jim Wheeler CEO from AvaSoft and we shared a Ice Cream Cone from their single use cartridge containing mind ice cream…it was “yummy!”

I then met with Gregory Lykiardopoulos CEO and Michael Overby CFO of Triton Distribution Systems, Inc. TTDS.  They are a true pioneer in the  b2b internet travel business.  I told them that we would introduce them to Universal Travel Group (UTVG.OB) a client of QualityStocks.

 I saw shoes from The Fashion House Holdings, Inc. (FHHI.OB), cool technology from DealTV and VSI Wireless and the medical future from International Stem Cell Corporation (ISC) (BTHC.OB).

The two firms that I liked the best were Nascent Food Service, Inc. (NCTW.OB) the “SYSCO Foods” Corporation (SYY) of Mexico and REEDS, Inc. (REED.OB) the “New beverage of the West” and beyond…both firms are on their way to the TOP.

The Brook Street Crew was unbelievable…they were helpful, focused, and directed the event like the true professionals they are…hats off to the entire Brook Street organization.

Brook street and QualityStocks in the Beverly Hilton Hotel was a perfect combination.

Thanks again,
