New IR-PR Agency Representing Asia-Based Public Companies Launches Website

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 18, 2014) - Asia IR-PR, a new investor relations and public relations agency representing Asia-based publicly traded companies, today announced the launching of its website, The site features information on the agency's staff and services as well as a blog, Asia IR-PR Voice, carrying news and opinion on the agency's clients and their industries.

The current post on Asia IR-PR Voice, "Car Crazy in China," offers insight into China's burgeoning pre-owned auto market and how it may benefit auto dealer Lentuo International Inc.

Based in New York City, Asia IR-PR offers comprehensive services devoted to helping undervalued Asian public companies optimize communications with key financial industry and media professionals and achieve stock valuations more closely correlated with these companies' actual performance.

Asia IR-PR provides services in six primary areas: investor relations, media relations, corporate communications, social media, capital formation, and business advisory. The agency, whose executives and analysts have represented over 50 Asian companies, is headed by Ronald S. Altbach, an investment industry professional with 35 years experience in finance and public company management.

Asia IR-PR may be contracted on a full-time agency basis, or for limited-engagement IR or PR projects.

In addition to Lentuo International, Asia IR-PR's current client list includes:

Bohai Pharmaceuticals Group, Inc., a manufacturer and marketer of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) in the People's Republic of China;

CAA Resources Limited, a Malaysia-based iron ore product company mining and selling high-quality mineral products to leading steel manufacturers in the People's Republic of China;

NQ Mobile Inc., a leading global provider of mobile Internet services; and

"For quite some time, Chinese and other Asian public companies have been battling a market bias that, in many cases, has prevented them from achieving the valuations they truly deserve based upon performance," said Mr. Altbach, Asia IR-PR CEO and president. "We are devoted to correcting this bias and helping our clients achieve valuations on a par with comparable companies based in North America and other parts of the world."

To best serve its Asia-based clients, he said, Asia IR-PR operates on a 24x7 basis.
