MKA Capital, Inc. (OTCBB: MKAC) announced today it has entered into a share exchange agreement which will allow it to dispose the aviation leasing business and enter into the flourishing industrial resources recovery business.
In order to increase the shareholders' values, the company has seized the opportunity to dispose its 75% ownership in MK Aviation, SA due to certain performance issues, in exchange for 100% of Sancon Recycling Pty Limited. Sancon is an industrial waste management company with its operations based in Australia, Hong Kong and China. Sancon serves a wide range of industrial clients throughout Australia by collecting and recycling their industrial wastes before exporting to China for re-entry to manufacture cycles as recovered raw materials. Sancon currently exports more than 6,000 tons of plastic, cardboard, paper and other forms of recyclable materials every year. Through its Hong Kong based affiliates it imports into China 25,000 tons of recyclable materials every year for resell after further processing either from its own processing plants or other processing plants.
"The use of recycled material is both environmentally friendly and a key part of today's competitive manufacturing process to lower costs. The soaring raw material price for manufactures, especially in China has created tremendous demands for recycled materials. At Sancon, we are developing fully the opportunities we have identified between the soaring manufacturing needs in China and the dynamic process to recycle waste materials such as plastics, cardboard, and paper," comments Mr. Jack Chen, president of Sancon. "We are very pleased to become a part of a public company through MKA Capital. This will allow us to tap into the capital market to fund our expansion program to satisfy the insatiable demands from our manufacturing customers."
MKA Capital will change its name to Sancon Resources Recovery Inc.
