HONG KONG, CHINA – Media OutReach – 31 July 2020 – The leading international sportswear brand enterprise in the PRC, China Dongxiang (Group) Co., Ltd. (“China Dongxiang” or “the Company”, together with its subsidiaries, “the Group”, HKEx stock code: 3818) announces that its non-wholly owned subsidiary Phenix Co., Ltd (“Phenix”) will sell the Kappa Japan trademarks and the IP miscellaneous assets for a consideration of US$13 million (equivalent to approximately RMB91.26 million) to Basic Trademark S.r.l. con socio unico, a wholly-owned subsidiary of BasicNet S.p.A.. The disposal includes the Kappa Japan trademarks and the IP miscellaneous assets used in the Japan business. Closing of the disposal shall take place on 15 September 2020 or no later than 15 October 2020.

 

Taking into account of the consideration of US$13 million, the unaudited book value of the Kappa Japan trademarks and the IP miscellaneous assets of US$1.98 million as at 30 June 2020 (equivalent to approximately RMB13.9 million), and the estimated transaction costs of US$0.09 million (equivalent to approximately RMB0.63 million), the Group is expected to record an unaudited estimated gain on the disposal of approximately US$10.93 million (equivalent to approximately RMB76.73 million).

The Chairman of the BasicNet Group, Mr. Marco Boglione, regarding the transaction stated: “I admit that the satisfaction with repurchasing the Kappa brand in Japan is immense. With the world’s third largest economy entering the BasicNet system, the global strategic project for the “omini” brand is completed. China DongXiang will independently manage the Kappa brand in the PRC and Macau, and BasicNet the rest of the world. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my friend Mr. Chen Yihong, Founder, Chairman and Executive Director of China DongXiang, who has been working with passion, courage and intelligence to develop the standing and growth of the Kappa brand for almost 20 years now. “

 

Mr. Chen Yihong, Founder, Chairman and Executive Director of China Dongxiang, said: “The disposal enables the Group to better integrate its resources and focus on the development of Kappa brand in the PRC, which is in the interests of the Group’s long-term development and the shareholders as a whole. Looking forward, we will, as always, continue to develop our business in the PRC through a multi-brand strategy, as well as to explore market opportunities.”

Chairman Chen concluded, “In 2006, China Dongxiang acquired from BasicNet all rights of Kappa brand in Mainland China and Macau. In 2008, the Group acquired Phenix, which owned and managed Kappa brand in Japan, becoming the owner of Kappa in both China and Japan. Today, the sale of Kappa Japan back to BasicNet reflects our close and harmonious relationship. In our nearly two decades of cooperation, I’m delighted that we have been respecting each other’s core interests, and continued to deepen our cooperation. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Mr. Marco Boglione, Chairman of BasicNet. I hope that we can treasure what we had in the past and look forward to the future, working on our new foundation and bring the century-old brand Kappa towards a new milestone.”

(BIT: BAN) mainly engages in the sector of branded leisurewear and sportswear, footwear and accessories with a collection of market-leading registered trademarks, including Kappa®, Robe di Kappa®, Jesus® Jeans, K-Way®, Superga®, Sabelt®, Briko® and Sebago®.

Ultimaker Transformation Summit: How to remain flexible and productive as a business in a volatile world

Ultimaker CEO Jürgen von Hollen reveals it all during the Ultimaker Transformation Summit April 20-23rd

 

UTRECHT, THE NETHERLANDS - Media OutReach - 13 April 2021 - The COVID-19 pandemic sent shockwaves through the worldwide manufacturing community, as transport and workplace restrictions frustrated supply chains across the planet. And then, more recently a container ship got stuck in the Suez Canal. Disrupting global supply chains, again. But a crisis can also result in opportunities. And 3D printing is one of these opportunities, already being used by some companies worldwide to drive transformation and ensure business continuity in a volatile market.

The 2021 3D Printing Sentiment Index, conducted by international research firm Savanta in late 2020, showed that leading companies wasted no time in showing their entrepreneurship by finding alternatives to ensure business continuity and many turned to 3D printing as a game-changer in adverse times. The Index is a measure of market awareness and adoption as well as sentiment towards the potential impact of 3D printing technology. While the awareness for the technology has increased since last year, 29% of businesses who could potentially use 3D printing have no current familiarity with the technology. This means there is still considerable untapped opportunity in industries worldwide​. The adoption of 3D printing also increased in 2020, likely driven by the COVID-19 pandemic as businesses looked for more reliable solutions for prototyping and local manufacturing, less at risk from global volatility. While 1-in-3 businesses surveyed are currently using 3D printing, the Index data shows it is only fully embedded in 1-in-10. And that needs to change.


The Ultimaker Transformation Summit

The Ultimaker Transformation Summit is therefore set up to inspire and inform businesses of any size worldwide how 3D printing can help to transform. This free online summit, being held April 20-23, features vision keynotes, product launches, and demonstrations. A fully customized, interactive showroom brings the Ultimaker ecosystem to life. It gives participants full control to discover Ultimaker's product portfolio, engage with 3D printing experts via live chat, and meet software and material partners that are part of the ecosystem. Real-world applications that have helped customers transform their businesses with 3D printing in this volatile market are displayed in such a way that participants can discover them at their own pace. This summit is the place to be for decision-makers, engineers, and innovators – from large global companies to SMEs – who want to start their transformation today. Save your seat, register today.

Jürgen von Hollen, CEO at Ultimaker: "In a complex and rapidly changing market, innovation is essential for future-proofing manufacturing. During the Ultimaker Transformation Summit we will inspire our guests together with trusted partners how to drive truly successful transformation today and tomorrow. I will also be revealing how Ultimaker is transforming as a company during the opening keynote on Tuesday April 20th, 17:00 CEST. Furthermore, we will be announcing some exciting new solutions that help to make that desired transformation happen. Since we greatly miss the direct interaction with our prospects and customers at physical events – and because we have these exciting updates to share – we decided to open our doors and welcome you to a unique online experience to start your transformation journey today."
