APT Closes Shenzhen Factory

SHENZHEN, China, Dec. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Uni Core Holdings Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: UCHC), a Hong Kong-based holding company, regrettably informs its shareholders that it has filed for bankruptcy protection for its Shenzhen Factory of the APT Paper Group ("APT"), one of UCHC's subsidiaries.  The Shenzhen facility was negatively impacted by the downturn of the Chinese and worldwide economy coupled with a shortage of required cash flow to meet current production needs.  APT Shenzhen has been struggling for a long time and management has decided to close it down.

UCHC's Board believes that this move will allow the company to devote the expected cash savings to bolster the healthier APT Group's Qingdao and Suzhou factories, which remain fully operational.

UCHC's management's goal is to turn the remaining APT operations profitable within six (6) months.

UCHC plans to soon initiate a Valuation Report and an Audit of Prosperous Agriculture Company Limited, its farm business, in order to consolidate their financial results with the Group.

UCHC recently appointed a New York-based investment advisor to aid in the business restructuring and an investment banker to potentially raise capital.

James Wu, CEO of UCHC, commented that, although the above-announced recent moves will provide short term pain, the results should ultimately prove positive.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

It features built-in integration with Azur...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
