DEERFIELD BEACH, Florida – February 10, 2016 – CD International Enterprises, Inc. (“CD International”) (OTC: CDII), a U.S.-based company that sources industrial commodities and provides business and management corporate consulting services, today announced that Capital Resources Management Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of CD International, has received a purchase order of 200,000 tons of iron ore per month or 4.8 million tons of iron ore for a period of 24 months from a China-based trading company.
Per the purchase order, CD International will source up to 200,000 tons of iron ore per month for a period of 24 months in a total of up to 4.8 million tons. With today’s spot price of iron ore (62% iron ore fines) at approximately $42 per metric ton, CFR China, the purchase order has a potential value at approximately $200 million. Management has been sourcing suppliers in both North and South America to execute the transaction for our buyer.
Dr. James Wang, Chairman and CEO of CD International commented on the purchase order, “we are very pleased with this new purchase order to have an opportunity for further expansion of our mineral trading business. We launched our mineral trading business in 2010 by sourcing, purchasing and reselling iron ore from Mexico, Chile and Bolivia to our Chinese buyers. Since 2015, we decided to develop a new business model to mainly focus on sourcing for our buyers in China in order for us to reduce our capital exposure to market risk through back-to-back contracts. From 2014 to 2015, iron ore spot price has hit a major downside. However, as we believe spot price of iron ore stabilizes or improves in 2016, we will pursue more business opportunities to speed up our mineral trading business under our new business model. We believe a successful execution of this transaction can bring our mineral trading business to a new level by generating substantial profits for our company.”
