Oughtibridge,, United Kingdom (PressExposure) May 25, 2009 -- "Nexis International Industries" (OTC: NXSI) has implemented a business model to generate a benchmark return of at least Euro 144 million per annum from each plant that it operates. Plans to have 2 plants in operation by 2010 were announced by Mr. Walter Filler (Executive Chairman) and Mr. Rahoul Ray (Director and CEO) at a series of investor presentations this week in Paris, Frankfurt, Zurich and Geneva. The business objectives outlined by the company are to deliver high volume affordable housing solutions in various countries, using its innovative and proven "Green" technological 'end-to-end' solution, that integrates mixed solid waste with virgin raw materials in a combination treatment and manufacturing process. This process produces a range of industrial and commercial building materials (building panels) to be marketed and distributed under the 5Stargreen(TM) trademark. Strategies underpinning this objective include:
1. Implement License Agreements with Local Partners The development and growth of new commercial markets will be achieved by issuing licenses to distributors and wholesalers with existing established significant relationships and contracts within the building materials and construction markets in their region. A region will comprise of a number of countries (e.g. European Union or Middle East) although where applicable could be country specific (e.g. China or India). Licensees will only be able to operate within their region. "Nexis International Industries"will retain a 50% interest in the distribution license in each region.
2. Establish plants in targeted regions and countries Each licensed region will have a production strategy incorporating volume ramp-up and product ranges developed to take into account local factors including costs, market conditions and market size. Plants will be established in close proximity to the supply of raw materials in the regional license area. Capital investment in plants is based upon ramping up to meet required demand, after the initial pilot or test plant stage at each manufacturing site. "Nexis International Industries" will sell a 25% interest in each plant to local investors in a region, where this makes strategic sense.
3. Brand recognition 5Stargreen(TM) panels are intended to be established as a worldwide recognized brand within 5 years. This will be achieved via a global marketing plan that will be applied consistently across all licensed regions via the regional licensees.
4. Product innovation and ongoing R&D 5Stargreen(TM) panel products, plant technology and building designs will be subjected to ongoing R&D and innovation. Regional distribution licensees will be required to make an annual contribution towards R&D from product sales.
"Nexis International Industries" will derive revenue in each region from up-front license fees, ongoing waste processing fees, plant profits and the end sales of 5Stargreen(TM) panels to the market.
Investment in each plant will be made after demand for 5Stargreen(TM) panel products has been contracted. Plant sizes will be based upon a waste processing capacity of up to 750ktpa, with a 250ktpa capacity plant being considered the benchmark size. Investment in ramping-up to full capacity will take up to 3 years from commissioning and will be in response to market demand. This will ensure that operating and fixed costs of production are minimized where possible. A benchmark capacity plant of 250ktpa is expected to generate a return to "Nexis International Industries" of approximately Euro 144 million annually, after allowing for minority 25% interest in the plant and a 50% interest in the distribution license.
