SHANGHAI, CHINA--(Marketwire - Jun 30, 2011) - China America Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB: CAAH) announced today it has entered into a definitive share exchange agreement with Best Alliance Worldwide Investments Limited ("Best Alliance") to acquire a 100% equity stake in China Ziyang Technology Company, Limited for a combination of a convertible promissory note and common stock valued at approximately $16 million. Upon completion of the transaction and assuming full conversion of the note, Best Alliance will own approximately 79.6% of the then issued and outstanding shares of China America Holdings.

Ziyang Technology Company, Limited is a Hong Kong Based holding company with a wholly owned subsidiary, Ziyang Ceramics Company, Limited ("Ziyang Ceramics"), based in Zhucheng City, Shandong Province, China. Ziyang Ceramics was established on January 26, 2006, with $7.7 million registered capital and had total assets of approximately $26.5 million as of March 31, 2011. Ziyang Ceramics is engaged in the manufacturing and distribution of porcelain tiles used for interior residential and commercial flooring primarily in Eastern and Central China. Ziyang Ceramics operates its production and distribution facility on approximately 1.8 million square feet of land that includes facilities covering an area of 775,000 square feet.

In 2010, on a pro forma basis, Ziyang Ceramics generated revenue of $31.1 million with net income of approximately $7.3 million and experienced top and bottom line growth in excess of 44% compared to 2009.
