TAIYUAN CITY, China, Dec. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Longwei Petroleum Investment Holding Ltd. (NYSE MKT: LPH) ("Longwei" or the "Company"), an energy company engaged in the storage and distribution of finished petroleum products in the People's Republic of China ("PRC"), has renewed its agreement with RedChip Companies, Inc. ("RedChip") for investor relations services.
"We've had the pleasure of working with RedChip for more than four years," said Cai Yongjun, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Longwei. "They have been with us since our initial entrance into the U.S. capital markets and have played a key role in our investor communication efforts. We are pleased to continue our relationship with RedChip as we enter yet another high-growth phase of our business."
"RedChip's platform has served us well over the past four years," stated Michael Toups, Chief Financial Officer of Longwei. "More recently, we've benefited from added exposure of our story through RedChip's new television program, 'The RedChip Money Report.' We plan to use multiple platforms to continue to disseminate the Company's story to both institutional and retail investors."
Dave Gentry, President and CEO of RedChip, stated, "With strong leadership at the helm, Longwei has grown from one facility to three since first engaging RedChip. Over the past three years, they have recorded annual sales growth of 45%, with net income rising 28% annually, earning the distinction of Forbes Asia's "Best Under A Billion" in July 2012. We believe Longwei will continue its track record of strong growth in the quarters ahead, capitalizing on the ramp-up of its Huajie facility and organic growth at the Company's two existing facilities.
"Moving forward, we will leverage the strong capital market foundation we've helped Longwei build over the past four years," continued Mr. Gentry. "We believe our comprehensive investor communication solutions can provide the ideal platform to produce improved valuation metrics for Longwei in the months and quarters ahead."
