Merger Takes Effect

May 13, 1997|Melinda Fulmer

NEWPORT BEACH — Largo Vista Group Ltd. said Monday that it had completed a previously announced merger with a Chinese liquid petroleum gas retailer, Kunming Xinmao Industrial Petrochemical Co.

The complex stock deal is expected to give Largo Vista, a small real estate firm traded over the counter, a steady stream of revenue from Xinmao's sales of gas for residential heating. It gives Xinmao a 70% stake in Largo Vista and access to the U.S. stock market through Largo Vista's public status.

Largo Vista officials say they plan to apply for a Nasdaq National Market listing soon, now that the company has enough revenue and assets to qualify.

Former Xinmao Chairman Deng Shan is chairman and chief executive of Largo Vista. A Largo Vista official said the new company is targeting three other acquisitions in southern China.
