Leo Motors Entered Into a $ 6 Million Dollar Deal

Leo Shares Its 56 Patents With Shenzhen Rui Li Da Shebei Ltd. in China

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Jul 26, 2011) - Leo Motors, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: LEOM) entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with a Chinese Company named Shenzhen Rui Li Da Shebei (SRLDS) Limited. According to the MOU, Leo will share its 56 patent technologies with SRLDS, and SRLDS in return will pay around US$ 6 million to Leo.

Using Leo's technology, SRLDS will set up an Electric Vehicle (EV) manufacturing plant in Beijing by initially investing approximately US$ 25 million. Leo will also invest approximately US$ 3 million to the new plant after receiving the payment of US$ 6 million. When the new plant is rolling, Leo will supply all major solutions of the Electric Vehicle (EV) power train including high power electric motors, battery power packs with battery management system, and power controllers.

According to Mr. John Lee, CEO of Leo Motors, "This MOU has great significance to our business. This deal means that our EV technology was acknowledged in China. With the new venture, Leo has a chance to demonstrate its technology in China and an opportunity to capitalize on its technology."

The Chinese government makes great efforts in promoting EVs as it pays approximately US$ 17 billion to subsidize the EV buyers and EV industry. Since last year, the Chinese government has subsidized around US$ 10,000 to each EV buyer. Also, the Chinese Governmental electricity supplier plans to make 6,200 charging stations in 27 major cities in China.
