TIANJIN, CHINA--(Marketwired - Nov 22, 2013) - China Auto Logistics Inc. (the "Company" or "CALI") (NASDAQ: CALI), a top seller in China of luxury imported automobiles, and a leading provider of auto-related services, reported today that the Company (through its wholly-owned subsidiary) has entered into a Cooperation Framework Agreement with respect to the establishment of a Joint Venture that will own and operate a used car business. Participation in the joint venture is contingent, however, on the successful completion by the Company of the acquisition of the Tianjin Airport International Automall, where the used car business will be operated. The acquisition is currently still in negotiations.
Additional details on the Framework Agreement are available in the Form 8-K filed today with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Mr. Tong Shiping, CEO and Chairman of the Company, commented, "We believe the used car business could add another valuable dimension to our potential acquisition of the Tianjin Airport International Automall. Since the used car joint venture is fully contingent on this acquisition, which we cannot guarantee at this time will be completed, it would be premature to provide additional information currently. We will keep shareholders informed of our progress."
