Longwei Petroleum Announces $186 Million in Annual Contracts
6:55a ET February 1, 2011 (PR NewsWire)
Longwei Petroleum Investment Holding Ltd. (NYSE Amex: 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"), today announced that during the month of January it has renewed annual contracts with fifteen customers for 186,000 metric tons ("mt") of diesel, gasoline, and solvents. The estimated value of these contracts based on current pricing is in excess of $186 million, which is in line with the Company's annual sales forecast of $500 million for fiscal year ending June 30, 2011.
"We are very happy to renew these contracts with our customers prior to the Chinese New Year, and it reinforces that our customers view Longwei as a trusted supply partner," said Cai Yongjun, President and CEO of Longwei. "The value of our customer contracts adjusts to reflect the current pricing level at the time of delivery, and we anticipate that these contracts may be worth even more if oil hits $100 per barrel as forecasted by Goldman Sachs."
The National Development and Reform Commission ("NDRC"), China's top economic planner, adjusted both gasoline and diesel prices up approximately 3% in October 2010 and 4% in December 2010. The Company anticipates a similar price increase from the NDRC after the Chinese New Year to reflect the global price increases over the past quarter.
"The demand for petroleum products continues to grow," said Michael Toups, CFO of Longwei. "We want to be well-positioned to take advantage of opportunities in our region to expand our capacity and reach. Our last acquisition has proven to be very successful, and we want to further expand our distribution base to support this growing demand."
