Rotoblock (ROTB) Targets Multi-Billion Dollar Global Air-Conditioning Market With US-China Venture

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and NANJING, CHINA--(Marketwire - June 26, 2008) - Rotoblock (OTCBB: ROTB), an energy-efficient and environmental equipment company in China, has commenced production of a new line of air conditioning systems through its venture with manufacturing partner Hikom Gottell of Nanjing, China.

Rotoblock aims to become one of the top commercial air-conditioner brands in China and by next year expects to begin export to many of the world's top markets, including The Middle East, North America and Europe.

According to a report by the Freedonia Group, "World demand for HVAC equipment is projected to rise more than five percent per year through 2012, exceeding $70 billion. Demand in the Asia/Pacific region will outpace the global average, rising more than six percent annually through 2012."

Last month Rotoblock agreed to purchase controlling interest of Nanjing's Hikom Gottell for US$25 Million. The final sale is subject to independent review and final agreement of the term sheet.

Rotoblock's position in the air conditioning market is bolstered by its relationship with Hikom Gottell, which has developed a reputation as a leading brand in China.

Hikom Gottell recently completed the construction of a modern manufacturing facility in Nanjing. Rotoblock's acquisition includes all hard assets of Hikom Gottell's manufacturing facilities in Nanjing as well as the name Hikom Gottell and its distribution network. Also included is Hikom Gottell's 10-acre manufacturing complex, land, factories, manufacturing equipment, testing facilities, and delivery trucks.

Rotoblock serves primarily industrial and commercial air conditioning markets, but is introducing a new, state-of-the-art, energy-efficient system this year for home use. Rotoblock is now working with Hikom Gottell to reorganize the corporate structure, recruit R&D talent, optimize its marketing strategy, and refocus its sales efforts.
