发布时间:2018-12-03 编辑:admin


BEIJING, Oct. 9 /Xinhua-PRNewswire/ -- 新浪财经Sino-Global Shipping America, Ltd. (Nasdaq: SINO) ("Sino-Global" or the "Company"), a leading, non-state-owned provider of shipping agency services operating primarily in China, today announced that its board of directors has authorized a stock repurchase program, under which Sino-Global may repurchase up to ten percent of the outstanding common stock of the Company on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions for a period of 12 months.

"We have a great deal of confidence in the long-term prospects of Sino-Global that we believe are not currently reflected in the price of our stock," said Mr. Cao Lei, Sino-Global's chief executive officer. "We believe our successful use of joint ventures and contractual relationships in order to expand our business in China and internationally has reduced our expected costs of growth, and we believe this share buyback will allow us to provide long-term shareholder value to investors who have shown confidence in Sino-Global."

"After carefully considering the financial situation in the United States and evaluating a number of investment opportunities, we believe that investing in our Company has the potential to yield significant returns," said Mr. Zhang Mingwei, Sino-Global's chief financial officer. "At the same time, we maintain a strong balance sheet and have positive cash flows from organic top line growth of nearly fifty percent, which we believe will allow us to continue evaluating acquisition targets."

Under the program, Sino-Global may, depending on market conditions, share price and other factors, make one or more purchases, on the open market or in privately negotiated transactions, of up to ten percent of the Company's issued and outstanding common stock. Such purchases under the program will be made in accordance with applicable law and subject to any required regulatory approvals. Any common stock repurchased by Sino-Global will become part of its treasury stock and may be used by Sino-Global to finance or execute acquisitions, equity incentive plans, or other arrangements. This repurchase program iAAAApected to continue over the next 12 months unlesAAAAtended or shortened by the board of directors.

The stock repurchase program will be funded using the company's cash on hand. As of June 30, 2008, the company had cash and cash equivalents of approximately US$9.6 million.
